Wordless Conversation

It was early in the morning
Was a foggy kind of a morning
when our eyes met.

"Why are we doing this?” she asked
“May be because we have to!”
“Why do we have to?”
I didn’t have an answer.

She looked at me again

“Why can’t I wear what you are wearing?”
“You will dear, one day definitely :)”
“But why not now, she retorted”
Again, I had no answer.

She had her eyes fixed on me now

“Your bag seems so light”
“Yes it is! In fact it has nothing :P”
“Why is mine so heavy, it hurts my shoulders”
I was searching for an answer.

"Teacher scolds me everyday, do you get scolded?"
"Yeah, for not sitting lectures"… :P
"But we don’t do that and still get scolded, even get beaten sometimes.... why does that happen?"
My answers were beginning to dry up.

“I haven’t done my homework, Have you?”
“Heh! We don’t get any homework dear!”
“Why do we do then …that too in heaps?”
I finally took my eyes away.

After a few seconds I gazed at her and gave a little smile

“Look at you, why are you smiling now?”
“No, Nothing to do with you girl.”
“Why do you think I am not?”
I guess, I knew her answer.

Her School bus arrived and her mom bid her goodbye. She still had a frown on her face. I was left stranded alone waiting for my bus.

P.S: Inspired by a cute lil’ girl in her school uniform staring at me from a distance early in the morning when we both were waiting for our bus. Instantly this came to mind :D.... She had such an “Ohh I don’t want to go to school mommy” kind of an expression that I almost felt sorry for her :(

  20. u hv something waiting for u on my blog ...

  21. Sweet. =D I think I miss those days the most. Really. I mean the whole point in skipping classes...the whole kick you get out of it is because you're doing something you're not supposed to and you're fooling your teachers by not getting caught doing it. And, with college and everything..where there's no one telling you what to do or not..the kick dies. Missing classes loses it's magic. Don't you think? :-o


Go Onn ..... Do it !!!!!
