It's me Ridhi.
I have always wanted to share my life but I had fear about people judging me for my choices and decisions.

I am Ridhi. I am here to share my story of life, which I never shared with anyone. I conducted myself as a girl who is interested in studies and had never fell for anyone. As a matter of fact my grades would also say the same. I was topper of school. It was more like a curse to be topper than a boon. Everyone would talk only about grades and scores with me. I have liked plenty of boys in my 18 years of life, or I crushed on them ever since I knew that I am a girl. I would create situations in my brain as if my crush is trying to pursue me and I am ignoring him. This happened until I was in 7th standard. I was enough popular in my school that every student and every teacher could recognize me. I used to have a best friend and we go together always. I am more social and compassionate. But guess what this friendly nature of mine was mistaken for something else. It was in my 7th class when I met a group of seniors with whom I used to hang out during breaks. It was fun talking to them and knowing about the so called secret couples in our school. I never talked that freely about relationships. They were really cool with me especially a super senior named Roshan was very nice to me.  It was all fun and games until my special super senior Roshan told me about boys who are thinking or believing that I love them. Hell yeah! I was nice to them not because I love them, but they all are my friends from kindergarten, why won’t I be a little free with them?! I didn’t believe him. I asked for proof. He called one of my friends and classmates and asked her about it. To my surprise what he said was true and little do I know about what was happening around me. In fact every student from high school knew it except my dumb ass. I was sad hearing the whole story and the story was there were these 3 boys from my class, they themselves think that I love them and believe that I was shy to express my love for them and standing in blind hope that I would confess my feelings one fine day. You want to know the worst part?! Here it goes they would fight daily after school and the rule was whosoever wins the fight they can sit beside me during lunch and breaks the next day. I can’t understand why was I an asshole not observing all these and not knowing all these unless I was told by someone else. Ugh…… I was an idiot. But really, being a girl makes you realize who are admiring you, doesn’t it?! After knowing this I stopped talking to them and ignored them. I would walk away if I see them coming towards me, I wouldn’t look at them, in every way I ignored them. Okay here I was shocked by my own behavior, I have always wanted someone to love me and caress me but when I had 3 admirers for the same I rejected them! And after days of struggle I figured out the reason for my rejection, it is simple, I never wanted them to be my boy friend, I saw them only as my classmates. Mean while there was ongoing annual celebration of our school and I had more time to talk to my seniors. I felt bitter for mistaking my friendly nature. Roshan was there for me all the time. He would console me. It was then we grew closer. I was out of that soreness but still ignoring them. Days passed and our final exams were over. It was the last day of school for that educational year and we will be having summer break after, I was usual hanging out with group of seniors. Roshan came to me and said “Hey! Come to the class nearby stairs, I want to talk to you” and said that we can talk here itself, he told me he wanted to talk to me ALONE! I went to that class, it was our class actually. He sat beside me and removed the bag between us. Then he moved closer to me! My heart beat ragged as he moved closer, I thought that something was fishy. But he didn’t do anything mischievous he started talking to me normally. I always saw this look on his face trying to say me something but couldn’t. That day it was not that look, it was something else. He asked “Will you talk to me even the next year?” He sounded sad. I said “Yes! Roshan! Don’t ever doubt that”. His smiling eyes reflected the consistency of our friendship, happiness of talking to me. I saw him while I was leaving this time I can’t understand what the look on his face was trying to say! I left anyways…..
