Episode 22: The school was over and the school pupil leaders were getting busy at once. “PT master has asked us to create a database of the new stock that we bought yesterday!” – Krishna told Madhavi “Yeah! we shall start that right away!” – Madhavi “And Veni! Let’s go to the library and create the list for independence day!” – Akhil said with a wide smiled and Veni wasn’t comfortable seeing his face “Hmmm ok” – Veni. Krishna and Madhavi went to the PT Room and the other two reached Library. Akhil kept staring at her every now and then Veni was really getting irritated with him. “Akhil if you don’t mind, can you work with Madhavi? Shall we swap?” - Veni “Absolutely! No problem at all” – Akhil gave a wide smile and Veni was surprised that he accepted immediately. “Come on! Go to the PT room and ask Madhavi to come here. We will take care of the Independence Day planning. – Akhil said with a smile. Thank God - Veni ran away at once. “Madhavi! I will work in the PT room and Akhil is calling you now” – Veni said bluntly. “Yeah sure! Not a problem! I can work anywhere” – Madhavi got up as if she was waiting. “Finally!” – Veni sat with a sigh and relief “What happened?” – Krishna “I wasn’t comfortable with him! So, I asked him whether shall we swap and he was ok with it” – Veni “Oh!” – Krishna replied amidst his work. “Fine! Let me count and enter the details!” – Veni started her work. “By the way! I heard many girls have crush on you after seeing you on everyday’ s prayer?” – Veni asked with a smile. “Oh!” – Krishna “Just oh!?” – Veni was disappointed “I don’t want to give any of my energy or time for that” – Krishna responded entering the details “Hmmmm strange!!!” – Veni said and resumed her work. Krishna never spoke much. He was calm, composed and studious. It was different for Veni to meet someone like Krishna who never bothered about people and pursued his dream vigorously. It was actually inspiring for Veni. Both completed their work by 4:45 and met the other two. “Yeah even we are planning to wind up by 5. We will start. You guys carry on” – Akhil “Bye then! And Akhil Thanks!” – Veni said with courtesy. “Not a problem! You are welcome” – Akhil smiled. Both Veni and Krishna walked towards the parking space and took their cycle. As they rode towards the main gate, Krishna took the keys from his pocket and kept it ready. “Anna! PT room Keys!” – Krishna handed over it to the watchman. “Started so soon?!! I heard you people will be here till 6?”- Watchman “Yeah but there isn’t much work! Its over! I think the Independence Day team will have more work! Akhil and Madhavi! May be will start helping them from tomorrow” – Krishna said casually. “Oh ok” – Watchman Both Krishna and Veni rode in the same direction and soon their topic hovered over their subjects and test preparations. Veni and Krishna thought it was just another day but it wasn’t. Veni reached home and narrated everything to her dad and he was feeling proud about his daughter’s responsibilities at school. “Keep it up dear! You are balancing good!” – Saravanan said with a smile “Thanks dad!” – Veni smiled “But still you don’t have friends?!” – Saravanan “No dad! I talk to everyone! But none is close! Krishna seems to be good! Inspiring and aspiring” Veni “Yes! I did notice! He seems to be good with aspirations”- Saravanan said as Veni walked towards her room. Veni lied on her bed as there wasn’t any difficult test the next day. She kept thinking about Krishna who doesn’t even bother when he has that many girls behind him. And he is that one boy who didn’t propose her or flirt with her even after she being close with him. He being studious and aspiring attracted Veni a lot. It was after two days! Veni and Krishna was being called by the principal after the morning prayer. “May be about the Independence Day arrangements?” – Veni said and Krishna nodded his head with agreement. “But they should have called all four, right? Why just us?” – Veni asked as they both reached the Principal’s room.
