Finally, another day!
Last night, I wasn’t able to sleep properly, whenever I tried to sleep, certain pair of brown eyes were continuously coming in front of my eyes, though after some time I slept but still from the morning, I’m thinking about those eyes.
Why? Why I’m feeling a connection to those eyes? Why I can’t forget about those eyes? Why from yesterday, those eyes aren’t leaving my mind! What is happening to me?
Well, chuckling my thoughts, I got ready wearing a yellow crop top and black jeans. I had to walk to the college today because Anny was out with the car. I rushed to my classes, and I could see many familiar faces in my classes from the previous day. In one of my classes, I didn’t know we had to read a particular chapter and come prepared for a mini pop quiz. Let’s just say the professor was not happy about it and took it upon himself to humiliate me in front of the entire class.
Trust me, I felt like crying. It was so embarrassing for me. Back in India, I literally never get scolded from my any teacher but here second day itself, I was getting this reward. It was too much for me. I could feel everyone gaze on me when I get scolded. It really made me very self-conscious.
This was the worst day for me. I just wanted this day to get over as soon as possible so that I could avoid this unwanted attention from the class.
Finally, when the class was over, I rushed out of my class only to bump into someone again and my books went flying all over the hallway floor.
“For fuck sake! Can’t anyone watch where they are going? Asshole,” I mumbled, pissed out of my mind, and started picking up my stuff from the ground without bothering to look up.
“Well, that’s pretty harsh considering, you bumped into me. You should watch where you are going next time.” He replied cockily. The nerve he had, I looked up to see who it was and my jaw dropped.
He was Mr Brown Eyes!
I again bumped into him!
I was on my knees and cursing at the jerk who made me drop my books, and it was him.
I guess this day is going to be my worst as well as the most embarrassing day of my life!
I mumbled a sorry without glancing towards him, I can’t embarrass myself more, especially in front of him. I quickly collected my things and hurried away.
“Wait,” he called out to me, making me stop in my tracks. Hearing his pleasant voice, my heartbeat accelerated.
“I bumped into you yesterday, right?” So he remembered.
“Yes, you did,” I said in a stern tone with a matching straight face.
“Then I guess we are even. Also, I didn’t have a chance to say sorry as I was in a hurry to get to my class, I’m sorry.” He seemed sincere and flashed a bright smile showcasing his straight white teeth and I couldn’t hear a word he said as I was thinking about what it would be like to kiss that mole above his lips. Literally, that mole above his lips was making him more irresistible.
Wait! What am I thinking? Shit.
Something was seriously wrong with me. I was behaving like a hormonal teenager around this guy.
“Huh?” I stammered out.
“I said I’m sorry,” he repeated himself with a huge smirk on his face.
“It’s fine. I should get going.” I rushed out and tried to escape before I could humiliate myself further.
“I’m Manik,” he reached out his hand to stop me from leaving and offering to shake it.
But his name caught my attention.
Manik! A gem!
Well, indeed he looks like one!
His name is as beautiful as he is, perfect to go with his personality.
What am I thinking? Gwadd!
Get a grip on yourself, Nandini!
“Uhh… I’m Nandini.” I whispered, avoiding eye contact with him.
“I’ll see you around then, baby girl,” he whispered huskily, tucking the strand of my hair behind my ear, his touch sent shivers down my spine, my breath hitched when my eyes met his gorgeous pair of chocolate brown eyes, I was melting in his touch and getting lost into his bewitching eyes.
His word caught my whole attention, the way he addressed me, ‘baby girl’ made me go all weak on my knees.
This word sounds damn sexy in his husky voice.
What seemed like forever, finally he stepped back from me. He tilted his head and passed me a smirk before walking away.
What the hell was that?
