The Plan (Post No. 3)

11 May

“Ok so I’ll come over to your place right away”, he whispered into the phone.

 “Yeah make it quick”, came the answer.

 “Okay, I’ll….. Hey I can hear someone coming I gotta hang up… See ya in a while” and the phone went dead.

 He replaced the receiver; quickly came out of the closet kept the phone on the table and ran up the stairs just when the door opened.

 “Hey hey where’s the fire?” she asked.

 “Oh! Mom….. I’m going over to Ricky’s place to finish up our science project”

 “Alright don’t be too late baby, come home before sundown”

“And be careful….. Don’t ride the bike too fast” she added as an afterthought, as he was disappearing into his room.

“Yeah Mom!!!!” Came the customary reply followed by a lot of shuffling and throwing and scrambling.

“When will he ever learn to be clean and organized?” she thought to herself

——————————————————————————————–

“So it’s final then? I’ll sneak out at 11.30 pm and give you the regular signal. We reach the meeting place on our own routes. You take the route next to the lake; I take the dirt road from the field.”

 “Yes I think that’s good. We’ll both reach there at 00:00 hrs precisely” Said Ricky.

He always had this annoying habit of stating time in military standards. Why couldn’t he say 12:00 am like normal people?

 “Hey Max are you listening at all?”

 “Huh? Yeah yeah I get it Ricky? Don’t get finicky now, I’ll be there Ok!!”

——————————————————————————————– 

Max got out of the bed at 11:25pm fully dressed and sneaked out with his small backpack full of equipments they were going to need tonight.

 He stood outside Ricky’s window at exactly 23:30 hours and whistled softly thrice.

Ricky was already getting out of the window before he could even turn on the flashlight which was the next signal in case the first one didn’t work.

 Both of them looked at each other for a split second before taking their own routes.

 His route was scarier than Ricky’s. He was a fool to volunteer for the dirt track, he thought. It was all the more scary at night, although he would never admit to being scared to Ricky.

 He could finally see the gate to their destination and could hear Ricky whistling silently. So he had indeed reached before him. Max cursed under his breath.

 “Hey buddy” sad Ricky his voice almost echoing in the dead silence of the night.

“You are late”

 “Shhh!! You fool”

 “Oh! Who’s gonna hear us dude, we are in a cemetery between dead people, for cryin’ out loud….. hee hee haw haw” Ricky did his awful devilish laugh again.

 “Hey stop it Ricky you are freaking me out more than the cemetery. You wanna go in or bail out. Hope you’re not scared” said Max making a feeble attempt to scare Ricky.

 But there was no stopping Ricky. He was already unloading the stuff from his bike and walking towards the entrance.

 “Hey wait up Rik, I think I heard something”

 “Aww c’mon Man!!! Are you……….” Rik turned around.

 “Rickkkkkkkkkkkkkkk !!!!! Watch Out!!!!!!!!!!!!! Behind You!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Max screamed at the top of his voice.

Ok, so I had promised to come up with something sensible and sweet….. I hope this post counts in at least either one of the categories.

 I watched the sweetest Animation Movie of all times today…… Finding Nemo….. Yeah yeah I hadn’t seen it for so long, but it was worth all the wait.. Why? Well there could not be a better time to watch it then now.  Why again?

 Firstly some of you might have read my post titled Confused, and the confusion if anything is rising by the minute. Even the Jyotish feels so. He says my Ketu is going on. As if I know what that means.

 But lately I was under the impression that nothing can go right in my life. I was so frustrated. It was like the whole world had conspired to do things against my wishes.

Today when we got our ratings in office for this years Appraisal, I got quite a surprise; not the good one… the jaw dropping disappointing one. Some of you might know what I’m talking about.  

 So I sunk in deeper in my mode of confusion depression or whatever you wanna call it. I thought there was nothing left to go wrong with me or my life.

 I just switched on the computer and stumbled upon this movie (Finding Nemo) which has been neglected for quite a long time. So I decided to watch it, just for the heck of it, so that by the end of it I would feel sleepy and not have to turn around in bed till almost morning to finally fall asleep.

 Little did I know that this movie would move me so much. It’s a tale about courage, about never giving up, about trusting your friends, and living for others more than yourself.

 Coz when you actually believe this, nothing can go wrong in your life. The movie bought tears in my eyes more than once. I know girls cry all the time in movies but this one was genuine; it was from d deepest, innermost corner of my heart where I seriously felt the same as Nemo’s father.

 Juts when he had met his son after so many obstacles and just when he had though that it will all be fine, they had to face another big obstacle where nemo and their friend get trapped in a fishing net. But they finally manage to come outta it.

 That when I felt , no matter how hard it is I’m gonna come outta this…… yes I am!!!!!

NaBloPoMo

9 May

I know the title looks like some gibberish a five year old might have scribbled, but its not.  It Stands for National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo.com). It’s basically a blog marathon where you have to put up one post every single day for 31 days.

The theme for May is SWEET, but it’s not compulsory (As if i can ever write sweet stuff). I don’t know if i can keep up with this humongous task. It’s difficult ya know….. what with nothing to do in office, and at home, no important meetings or client calls, no friends in Mumbai, and ya most importantly all the laziness and the “I’m not in the mood to write” excuse; I’ll be glad if i can write five straight posts in 5 days.

Nevertheless, i promise to try ( dunno who I’m promising….. doubt if anyone follows this….. maybe i’m promising myself). And ya all of you who do stumble upon this blog by mistake i encourage ya’ll to try it too. After all no one’s gonna punish you if you don’t be honest and sincere in completing it (that’s the reason i joined 😉 )

So that’s it i did it…… i joined and wrote my first entry for the blog marathon….

Afterthought: if you are reading this do be kind enough to leave your comments so i get encouraged to write more stuff everyday (Ok Ok……. just put a comment to boost my ego….. everyone likes it…. 😉 ) Whatever the reason…….. Just comment OK!!!

So let’s see if i can come up with something sensible tomorrow….. More importantly something SWEET….
