Socializing 101, should have read that book! Ugghh how do I start a conversation, okay! I will ask her name. "Ummm What is your name?", no response,huh did she find me too boring, too obvious, I think I should just shut up, waiiittttt! she has put earphones on. Stupid of me. Keith tapped on the pretty girl's shoulder to get her attention and then he repeated his question "What is your name?" the girl replied "My name is Laya", "Nice name" So now what should I ask, think Keith........think "Umm where were you going?" " I am really sorry but my doctor has advised me to not talk too much because I have throat pain" Wow nicely sliced, you are gonna die single son Keith, okay so now what do I do let's read those boards...... VIRANI SPICES....., CHANDU'S ANTIQUES, MUMBAI BOOKSHOP, LET'S DO IT COACHING CLASSES................ Five minutes later Keith and Laya had arrived at the destination. Omg the most boring and worst few minutes of my life....okay Keith time to ask beauty queen's number go forward, go on.... "I forgot to ask your name, what is your name?", "My name is Keith" "Oh Keith I am actually so sorry I forgot to apologize for hitting you..." "Oh yeah, It's fine it was actually my mistake, I didn't look twice" okay Keith this is the moment go for it.. "Keithhhh!!!!" It was Meghan "Finally you are here come innn!!'' Meghan was yelling for Keith from her door, "Just a minute yaar!" "Uh yeah actually..." when Keith turned back to ask her number poof! she wasn't even there, she had disappeared. He leaned to his side and saw a glimpse of her black scooty scoot away from the corner of the gate. He smiled and went inside..............
"Jake are the files ready?'' Karan asked as he entered his huge office, ''Done Karan'', ''Where is Ramya?'',''She is in your cabin".
Karan hurried to his cabin, he entered his cabin to find a girl sitting in his chair, her back turned to the door. "Sorry....... sorry, I know I had to come early because of course we have an interview, I just ran a bit late", Karan said. ''You always come late I don't know why, atleast one day you can't be on time" saying this a girl in red dress, long silky hair and round black eyes turned around the chair to face Karan. ''Ramya, I told sorry", "Fine fine fine" "You don't look like you forgave me, so I bought you something" saying this Karan pulled out two popsicles. "Popsicles?!, seriously Karan?",''It is called cherishing memories Ramya", Ramya grabbed a popsicle and began to enjoy it with Karan. Oh god how cute Karan looks when he is forgiving, when will he accept my proposal, his dark brown eyes and silky, smooth black hair, moreover his beauty spot below his sharp jawline, makes me flattered. "Okay wait let me guess you are thinking that when I will accept you, right?" said Karan like he just read Ramya's mind, "True, very very true", "See Ramu I-" "No! I have a name Ramya and you can't tell me to stop loving you, obviously not!'', "Fine R A M Y A, your choice", "I will keep trying" Ramya said with enthusiasam on her face like a seven year old child. "And I will keep saying no".............

"Vasudhaaa!" "Vasudhaaa!'', "Coming!! what do you want Ravi?''
Vasudha ran downstairs to Ravi and asked him feeling a bit pissed of "Why did you call me?'', "Vasudha don't you think it is time to get Karan married, he is 29 years old" Ravi said to Vasudha but looking far far away at the door. "Hmmm.... I thought so too but whenever I ask him about it he either gets very angry or just laughs it off, I am literally done asking him, If you want you ask him" said Vasudha with the look of least botherness. "I am planning to tell him, but before that what do you think of Ramya?", "Oh Ramya, she is a good match for Karan" Vasudha said laughing. Ravi snickered and said" Then fine I will fix this proposal, I am planning to talk to Mr Aholdiy and its been so long since I talked to him. I think he will be a but angry, but it is okay, I am sure he will be happy to hear about the news". "Yes, yes it has been so long since we talked to them". "Okay then, I will ask Chetan to send a letter to Aholdiy. So this is fixed".............

Laya walked to her huge black house, it was night, the house looked very creepy but she didn't mind. She walked to her sister's room and closed the door after ensuring she is asleep. She slowly slid along the staircase to her room. Kept her handbag on her red bed and went to her washroom. The lights were switched off and the square room was lit only by that ray of light from the tiny window outlooking the city. The tub was filled but with hot water. Laya hopped in and dipped herself in the boiled water. She didn't know how long she was. She closed her eye, she wasn't afraid of death anymore and silently wished for her death. Aaahhhh!!!, a girl screaming with pain, blood on the road, hospital corridors, doctors rushing in and out, a girl with light brown hair on the bed unconscious, an elderly lady crying........... Laya opened her eyes and arose from the water quickly drawing in huge breaths. Those thoughts kept flashing on to her mind, she looked through the window and tears rolled down her cheeks slowly and closed her sad and depressed eyes and opened them back with eyes filled with anger, fire and rage. She is not going to give up easily and got out from the washroom. She went to her drawer that had only three things- A gun, few bullets and an envelope. She picked up the envelope and pulled out 5 photographs and a pair of scissors. She walked to her balcony, that had glass floor and glass railing. She took the pair of scissors and cut them into half, throwing the other half onto the air. After she was done she looked far.. far away with only one thought in her mind Kill them.......
