If only…

 

 

She frowned, looking down at the question paper lying on her desk.

 

It seemed to be looking back at her with a sneer on its face!

 

Oh!If only she had studied for this exam earlier..

 

But her heart was not in it. It was busy leaping uncontrollably at the sight of a certain someone…

 

The one with a golden voice, the one with the golden smile…the one whose golden head was now bent on his paper, writing effortlessly. no doubt  with his golden pen!

 

Sigh!If only she had not dreamt about a golden future with this golden boy,she could have been  building a golden future  for herself  by qualifying in this exam

 

But all was not lost.Not for nothing had she been the topper in the class, before the “golden aura” tarnished her image.

 

With a deliberate mental sweep, she cleared the cobwebs off her memory bank

 

In response, the question paper seemed to flutter its eyelashes at her coquettishly, as if saying, “Oh sweetie you know how I turn into putty in your hands!”

 

Soon her beautiful coppery head was bowed down ,her hand trying to keep pace with her mercurial brain.

 

Had she looked up,she would have seen surprised-even shocked- to find a pair of sparkling green eyes looking at her enviously,the golden face a little in awe of her intellectual prowess and swamped  by her Hellenic beauty……….

    Atreyee… that is the sweetest bit of writing I’ve ever read, and the ending to this story was perfection too! Marvelous!

  2. I read through this twice, Atreyee, and there’s something wrong….no one died. Are you feeling okay? 🙂

    Crushes are bad for test scores. If only she knew he was checking her out, her brain would turn back into Jell-o!

  3. Oh this was so sweet and golden!! How we’ve all been that girl taking the test and not able to concentrate!! I love that it turns out that he couldn’t either. Just a lovely little story and a joy to read, Atreyee!! 😀
