The road that goes down to the darkest pit of hell
It also has a story of its own to tell
Ayena sat in her room all dressed up for the journey when her hands traced the last two lines of a book that read "what would come would come and we have to meet it when it does".Once more she looked outside through the window at the small world she was so familiar with but this time, with a so-long-partner look and finally when she heard the honking of the car from below .She closed the book with a thud ,kept it on the table and walked out of her world with a determined look on her face .
I looked through the glass of the car outside.A huge white building was slowly taking shape and in the reflection of the glass i could see my face .When i walked in through the doors it was like walking into a dream….it was like things were happening and i was like a silent observer when suddenly somebody woke me up. " um,excuse me" a tall lanky girl called me from behind.It was almost a whisper and she looked like she hoped i wouldn't hear her.i turned towards her and saw the source of this please-don't-hear-me whisper.It was her mother standing right behind her trying to make her daughter acquainted with hostel life. "yes,"i said with a polite smile on my face. "Are you a fresher?" the girl asked almost ready to run away now.She obviously have gone way out of her league.i felt a slight irritation now. 'why do they ever come to hostel if the world is too cruel for her to survive.Just go home Barbie'i felt like saying it to her but all i said was "yes , I am a fresher". "I am Lipi"she said in a small voice,and I am bored already.
I don't like this place orrrrr this place doesnt like me.Whatever the case is we certainly have to go a long way to understand each other .Right now it's the dead middle of the night and I am well tucked in my precisely -cut-to -the shape-of-my-body bed.One move this side or that side and I am going down on the floor.I am using my pen light to make this wonderful conversation with my diary and right beside me there are two more beds,one with a girl sleeping open mouthed(wonder I could slip a spider into it) and the other with this girl totally covered from head to toe with bed sheet with just her hand poping up in an inverted l .Now lets rewind a little bit and see what they were like when they were alive oops I mean awake. Omg (open mouthed girl)is Ayesha and inverted l is actually Aria. May be I have read too many classics but Ayesha seemed exactly like Elizabeth bennet .Smart ,beautiful and brainer.i like her but…..well this is just the beginning of the story.now about that inverted l.everything about her is a little bit well inverted. I cant figure her out yet but she is definitely strange not in a spooky way but its like she is even a stranger to herself .It looked like half of the time she was quite surprised with herself at what she did or talked.In case I forgot to mention she was a beauty too.
I looked outside the window.there was this lone tree standing in the middle of the field. The tree looked like whimping willow except a tad smaller and flood light falling on it made it glimmer with mysticism.i don't know why but I felt a chill run down my spine. It looked like the tree was silently smilling at me more like a smirk. Like there was something which it knew and I didn't .
My eyes opened to a totally new place.At first I totally forgot where I was .then I looked aside.omg(oh my god) OMg(open mouthed girl)was doing surya namaskar .I don't need this. I turned to the other side and my eyebrows shot up with irony because aria was doing suryanamaskar in bed.i mean she was sleeping in almost that position and all her cover was lying on the floor.Talk about day and night.Whatever it was I got up from my bed to get my brush when aesha turned towards me and said "good morning.i will be finished in seconds u want to go down for breakfast?" .now, I am not really the breakfast kind of girl .i usually skip that part from my list of meals but I don't know why I smiled at her sweetly and said "ya sure.I am dying to have breakfast" .Suddenly there was movement in aesha's bed and I saw aeysha rolling over and free falling from her bed and hitting the floor with a loud thud "ouch, I actually fell down" and she was laughing like a mad man. Then her hand shot up in the air like she was giving attendance in class and said "me too" instead of "present maam" "ya,but are u sure u will be able to make it to the breakfast table in one piece?" i asked with serious concern and I am not kidding. I was actually afraid. The mess was deserted when we entered it .We sat in a table close to the window with our cup of tea and breakfast.The sun beams were falling silently in our face.Three of us were chatting our hearts out. I don't know why but it felt like the three of us got comfortable with each other very easily .i felt the warmth in my face from the sun beams .It smelled of hope ,hope of a new beginning.The mess has got crowded gradually and I looked around to see it filled with faces of new and excited girls. "What are we going to were today?i m so excited" Aria said out in a loud shrilly excited voice. "Try nothing. That's the latest fashion" I said in my most matter of fact tone. "go to hell u jackass" Aria shot back. "ladies right now we need to go to our room" said Aria trying to call truce.
Icant believe I am actually wearing a salwar . "I want to die" I almost cried. "jane nahin denge tujhe.jane tujhe denge nahin"aria sang in a dramatic tone. "Common crybaby .Time to meet our counter parts" Aesha gave me a slap in the head with a mischievous look in her face. "huh ,easy for u to say, when both of u r looking dazzling in salwar whereas I am feeling like a jeans girl trapped inside a damn salwar body" ,I snapped back at both of them.
Man our class was huge.100 students. The first day in college was mostly about professors telling us how the road ahead is going to be the bumpiest ride of our lives and we better were our seatbelts. It was almost symbolic consideringthe fact that I almost fell flat on my face on my way to my seat,my foot trapped in the laptop cord .No one laughed out of manners but I know they wanted to. "boyezzz"hummed aria in her I-am-going-to-have-them-for-my-dinner tone when I have finally managed to settle my ass in a chair without any more further mishaps.When I looked around heres what I saw some of them were geeks,some of them where i-want-u-baby right now,some where where-am-I, and some well hey its just my first day I couldn't figure all of them out.But the problem was ,in a jeans I could have taken all of them out but in salwaar I just felt like little red ridding hood .
