(Ridz goes to armi)
Ridz: Armaan, did u see sapna?
Armi: oh ya, she left some time ago..she was searching for you but you were involved in some game..she told me to tell you that she remembered some important work, so she left suddenly..sorry, i forgot to tell you
Ridz: Armaan!! u idiot...i m stuck now...i dint even call my dad..i thought i will go with sapna..see, everyone is leaving now, i will look like a watchman for this hall..anyways i will call him now..

Ridz: (laughing)
Armi: u laugh like a kid..without any inhibitions

Ridz: [ again!! the same look that he gave on sapna's birthday, wat does that mean?? probably nothing..dont think too much ridzy]
Ridz: thanks..and..wat else did u do?
Armi:once they asked me to sing in a girl's voice..talking is ok yaar but singing like a girl..n they made me repeat it so many times pointing out some or the other fault in it...
Ridz: how do u manage to do all this without losing ur temper?
Armi: its simple..u cant escape, so njoy wat u do..thats
Ridz: u make everything sound simple..but i get very nervous in such situations
Armi: hmm..(pause for few seconds) u know wat u r wearing my favorite color..

Armi: so wat else r u good at other than being irritated easily
Ridz: i used to play tennis in school..was pretty good at it
Armi: oh wow, do u play now?
Ridz: no, i stopped after i started wearing glasses in my 12th standard..i miss the game a lot
Armi: hey, if u miss it so much u can go for lenses right? u can wear them atleast when u r playing
Ridz: no, i m scared of putting anything in my eyes
Armi: u dumbo...try them first

Armi: i m wearing them from 2 years..
Ridz(fully surprised): wattt??? u wear lenses???

Ridz: i cant see them
(now she is very near to his face..she sees his eyes...of her favorite color..looking straight into hers)
Ridz: [ gorgeous eyes!!]
(she feels his breath on her cheeks...realises she is too close n moves back)
Armi: did u see?
Ridz: wat??
Armi: lens
Ridz: no (innocently)
Ridz: huh!! u r such a devil armaan!! u made a fool out of me?
Armi: no need to make..u r already a fool..

(saying this she starts walking away from him..armaan holds her hand n stops)
Armi: hey..dont go that side..its dark it is u cant see in normal light..
Ridz: ughhhh !!! u r impossible !!
(she tries to go away again but armaan is still holding her hand tight)
Ridz: ok, i wont go, leave my hand now

Keerti: everyone has a different attitude
Ridz: hmmm...he doesnt say anything but its tacit that u can go to him anytime for help n he will be there for you..
