DG: I am hungry
DJ froze for a second...he cant believe what he is hearing....Food??
..she is talking abt food now?..he slowly turned to her
Like a lil kid asking for a toy she asked him
DG: can we eat sumthing and then start?
DJ couldnt control his laughter ..and DG wondered wats so funny
***************
DG was studying the slides and writing notes...less than 15 mins for
her presentation
DJ was looking at her...wondering "how cooly she is doing this?"
DJ: tell me sumthing
She kept looking at the slides and asked……
DG: wat?
DJ : why do u always wait for the last time...why do u always call in the middle of the night and ask things like this?
she turned towards him and with a sweet smile she said....
DG: i am the ghost na...hehehehe
It was that moment DJ realized ...no matter what she said ,no matter
what she did..and how much ever she troubled him ,,,its just
impossible for him to get angry on her
DJ :hehehehe yeah ...ur the ghost and i am the geek...may be i will write a story one day about all this -
DG: gud gud..do it…wat is the title?
DJ: wat else …. THE GEEK & THE GHOST
