7. Chapter 6

I just finished my exam and for some reason my parents allowed for me to go to the cricket tournament at school. I've been avoiding Deepak because I feared that he would've been mad at me for turning down his request to take me out on a date. Even when Akuti offered to take me secretly, I still couldn't risk going behind my parents back. Besides, Akuti tried to convince my brother, but he was just never on board.

"Hi Kyushi" I greeted from my bedroom window

"Hurry up!!" She yelled impatiently as we were both supposed to leave for school 10 minutes ago. Both of us are walking to school. Reason to why I decided to put on an oversized tshirt with black tights instead of the satin blouse with the black tights.

"Are you still avoiding him?" Kyushi asks while kicking a tiny pebble. We were both walking while playing the 'how far can you kick the pebble?' game.

"Yep" I say while staring blankly at the road.

"You do realise he waves at you everytime you pass by" she says facing me

"Yeah I do. I also realise the sad look he gives when I ignore him" I say feeling guilty of doing so.

"Talk to him. Please?" Kyushi asks still facing me.

"Okay" I say knowing there was no point battling with Kyushi. She would always win.


When we arrived at school, our school's team has already started playing. The other team was already up. My eyes were trying not to spot Deepak. I didn't want to care how he was doing. When all of a sudden, Kyushi elbows me.

"What?" I ask quite annoyed as she elbowed my rib cage hard.

"Deepak is looking for you" Kyushi says excitedly. 


"Oh my gosh, he's waving at you" she says obviously ignoring my last reply.

I finally decide to look at him, and that was when he decides to blow a kiss at me. I return back a slight smile and a wave. 

The popular girls sitting in a row infront of me were busy waving and blowing kisses at him but I knew the whole time our eyes were locked that he wasn't interested in the girls.

The game goes by with a lot of cheering and a lot of eye contact. It was a close win but the other team gets it by a difference of 2 hits and a miss. I approach him with a faint smile as he says "I need a hug Riya" with those puppy dog eyes.

"Why don't you ask the popular girls, they seem very desperate" I say while looking at them complain about how Deepak is talking me. 

"Getting jealous now are we?" He says with a smirk.

The minute I turn back to answer him, he kisses me on the lips. I break it with a flushed face.

"The team and I are going for lunch, you and Kyushi should definitely tag along" he says, eyes searching for mine. 

I meet his eyes and nod shyly.

We were all walking to a nearby cafe in a group. Kyushi was walking with Kiran infront of me and Deepak. Kiran seemed somehow interested in Kyushi. I wish I could say the same for Kyushi though. She didn't seem interested in Kiran the way he was to her. I wish she saw that he was definitely more interested in all of Kyushi's stories than her actual boyfriend. 

When we got into the cafe, it was really crowded. We expected it to be as it was the only cafe near town. We managed to get separate seating areas which was better than not getting a seat at all.

Kyushi and I sat next to each other while Deepak and Kiran sat opposite us. All of us were chit chatting when I spot Akuti and my brother walk in the shop. I start freaking out. They were coming my way and there was no chance that my brother could oversee me spending time with Deepak and his team. He would kill me. 

Thank god to Akuti for spotting me before world war 3 happens. She pulls my brother away from the seating area I was at and dragged him up to the second floor.

"What's with that face Riya?" Kyushi asks with a giggle. 

"My brother and his girlfriend just walked in. I thought I was doomed for life" I said with a face palm. They all chuckle before Deepak says "I'll protect you my princess". Which causes me blush real hard. I was pretty sure I would blow up if he called me that again.

"Crap" Kyushi curses and starts hiding her face behind the menu. I signal 1 minute to the boys and join Kyushi behind the biggest menu I've ever seen.

"What's wrong?" I ask.

"I just saw my boyfriend, Ashok" she says tears filling up in her eyes. I move away and start looking for him but I didn't see him. 

"He probably joined my brother" I say with a hand on her left shoulder. 

"He was with another girl" she says with her voice breaking.

"They're probably just friends. Come let's check out on him" I say and grab her hand to drag her upstairs. The boys start calling out to us but we ignore them. Once we reach the second floor, I started to regret dragging her up here. Ashok's hands were wrapped around a girls waist. We were both standing there in shock for what seemed like hours. It was when the boys caught up to us and started making a fuss that Ashok realised he got caught red handed and my brother realised I was out with Deepak. Kyushi starts crying and decides to search comfort from Kiran. Deepak puts a hand over my shoulder and decides to pull me back to our table downstairs. Before we could even take a step, my brother calls out to me...
