Wanna know a secret?

I saw Charan again in the sports meet I mentioned earlier. His team lost to ours. Seeing him in the ground made me realize that he is not only a good speaker but also a good player. He played equal to Roshan. They both won man of the match for their play later on.  For the first time he talked to me there, in the sports meet. We exchanged greetings. He told me he came there so he could see me. Now that is hell lot of surprise. He then ran for the game and left off after. We both met again in some quiz competition I couldn’t talk to him that day, but I observed him looking at me frequently. I ran to home quickly because I had to attend my cousin’s birthday party. I felt bad for not talking to him.

Our school management took us on a field trip to another school where Charan was studying. I saw him when I was getting off the bus and I was very much happy to see him there. He took me all around their labs, museum, he showed me his project on car engine and started explaining how it works, I couldn’t understand a bit but I loved to hear him. I asked him if we could talk about something other than studies to which he answered “I can’t talk to you looking into your eyes, on top I don’t know what to talk” he held my hand and said “I don’t know why I feel like I want you to be in my life” Best friends always ruin these moments, Riya, who was my bff came and I said that the field trip is over and we had to get going. I took my bus and when the bus was just about to leave Charan came to me and gave a piece of paper and asked me to read it. I said my goodbyes as I left. Roshan couldn’t stand the sight of him talking to me like that and took the paper from my hand and threw it away. L That was the saddest thing I ever experienced till then. I tried to fight him but I couldn’t.

It was our school anniversary after some days. My seniors planned to stay in the school after the function and compelled me to stay. I couldn’t deny. There was a camp-fire and every one was with their significant other and was enjoying the full moon. I could see Roshan staring at me. He couldn’t take his eyes off me. I’ve always liked this attention from him. I enjoyed the night with my friends. Everyone doze off but I couldn’t sleep as it was new place. I went out to breathe some air and I saw Roshan sitting there looking at the sky. I went to him and sat beside him. He asked me what I was doing there. I told him I wanted to talk to him about us. He asked me what it was. I said “I don’t love you Roshan! I just liked the attention. I don’t want you to hang on to me. You have enough options out there. Don’t be in a blind belief that I will love you one day.” He ran off with his eyes full of tears and I was there taking relaxing breaths with my eyes closed. Someone shook me and then I found that I was dreaming all this. I went to home the next morning.

A few more days passed. It was the time of final examinations for 10th grade students. Here in India, we go to other schools to give our exams. As a part of that Roshan also went there I saw a girl and confessed his feelings to her and she accepted it. I was actually happy for him that he was finally able to move on from me. But he announced that he hates me and we broke up. He also spread rumors about which I never cared at all. That was the end of my 8th standard. I moved to another school after knowing that there were no capable teachers in the school to teach.
