Another semester had started and Nitin was standing outside library waiting for the gates to open.Usually students
(students like Nitin!) visited the library only during the exams and that too under special circumstances, The other
ones being research scholars or aspired research scholars.
Nitin was neither a research scholar nor he aspired to do so but he had a reason.
 
It all started a few weeks ago.
 
“Damn! Look at her guys, She is so beautiful“ Rohit was finding it hard to put his jaws back in place.
He was usually the first one to notice a beautiful girl and would update info in all other databases. 
So basically he was their Girl Database Administrator.
Nitin saw the girl and went into the same state.
“Who the hell is she?“ Nitin’s jaws fell apart instantly the moment he followed Rohit's eyeballs.
She was standing in front of the Canteen sipping tea with her friends.
“I don’t know man“ Rohit said
“She is in the Chemistry department“ said Rakesh,he was always there for everyone to give the precious information
about University girls. They called him Girls Encyclopedia.He used to give info only when the situation 
demanded though.
This was not the first time Nitin had seen a beautiful girl, but apart from being very beautiful she had something
in her which was making his heart pound like never before.
 
While his friends found other useless ways to pass their time Nitin was stuck on her. He was constantly looking at
her. The way she was smiling,the way she was sipping her tea, everything was making him fall for her.
“Lets go guys“ Rohit broke Nitin’s dream run
“hmmmm, lets go“ said Nitin
“She is from the same hostel where Swati is“ Rakesh whispered in Nitin’s ears.
Swati was their classmate.
Nitin looked at him, smiled, and headed towards his department, he wanted to reach there ASAP.
 
“Why are you asking about her“ Swati enquired
“Nothing, just like that. Do you know her?“ Nitin asked in a cool tone, he didn't want to look too desperate.
“Not much but she is very shy and studious, I don’t think you will be able to talk to her“ Swati said while smiling
“Hmmmm“ Nitin said
“By the way she goes to library every morning at 9“ Swati said while leaving.
“Ok,Thanks a lot“ Nitin said
 
Since then Nitin would get up early in the morning and would reach the library by 9.He would try to sit near her.
He had tried different ways to get her attention but she was too much into her books to have a look at his smiling face.
Swati was right. He would whisper loud to his friends so that she gets distracted and give him at least an annoyed
look. But all his efforts were just not enough.
 
So one fine day he decided to ask her out for coffee.He wore his roommate's best shirt for the occasion.He was told
that this shirt looked good on him.He reached the library in time, she was already there, The seat right in 
front of her was empty, he thanked God and sat there.
"Nice start" he thought to himself 
Everything was going according to the plan. She even looked at him today(for about 3 seconds) and that has given 
him tons of confidence.
 
During the lunch time he gathered all his guts and went behind her. In front of the information center he hammered
the ice.
“Excuse me!“ But she didn’t look back. His voice had stuck in his throat and refused to come up
“ahhmm..ahhhmm…Excuse meeeee“ He cleared his throat and found his voice with him this time
“Yes ?“ She turned
“I am Nitin..aa.aan..and I just wanted to ask..that ..aa..aa.would you like to go for a coffee with me …sometimes 
may be…not today“ He did his best this time.
“Noo“ She replied,gave him a disgusting look and left
 
He didn't expect that. He thought his courage needed some respect but things were different here.
He was standing there, rejected and hurt. he had never thought that it would be this short. In his dreams he would 
talk to her for hours and would finally convince her that she would be very happy with him but reality 
was different and cruel.
He returned back to hostel very early that day.
 
“Why have you come so early today?“ Aman asked him when he came back from the campus, he was his roommate.
“I was not feeling well“ Nitin said, he was lying on his bed
“Ok, should I bring the dinner upstairs for you then?“ Aman asked
“Ok“ he replied from within his quilt
 
“What happened to him?“ Rohit asked Aman while having dinner
“I don’t know“ Aman said
“He asked that chemistry girl out and she said no to him“ Rakesh said, he had just joined them 
“Swati told me“ he added
“Oops“ Rohit and Aman understood the other half.
 
Next day Nitin did not go to the university.
“I am not feeling well today as well“ He told Aman
He spent the whole day in the hostel only, thinking about her, thinking about what would have happened had she 
said yes and what not.
 
His friends came early from the campus that day.
“Come on dude get up, its my birthday“ Aman entered the room and kicked him up.
“We have a partyyy“ Rohit jumped on him.
 
That night Nitin boozed up beyond his limits, he told his friends how and why true love is a pain in the ass. He gave at least 50 
reasons why we should not trust girls. Some of his friends found his ideas useful, some found them boring and some
did not understand a word. After enlightning some lives and throwing up a couple of times he went to bed and 
slept with his mouth open.
 
Next morning he woke up and got ready for his classes with everyone else.
"Are you all right?" Aman asked him 
"I think so" Nitin said with a sad smile
And they all left to the University.
 
Later that day while sipping tea:
“B.E.A.utiful“ Rohit was awestruck.
Nitin saw the girl and he just couldn't let his eyes off her.
“Who the hell is she?“ Nitin was sounding like someone sleep walking.
“I don’t know man, but she is awsom!“ Rohit mumbled
“She is in Physics deptt, and goes to library every morning at 9“ Rakesh put his hand on Nitin’s shoulder and winked.
 
The next morning Nitin was standing outside Library waiting for the gates to open.
