We were sitting on the park bench.. Her cell phone started giving some beep.. She.. My girl friend.. It was an SMS that one of her friends had sent.. She read it and then turned my side with a smile..
"What..? What is it about..?", I got curious..
She smiled again and showed it to me. The SMS read:
Tragedies of boys life:
1. Good girls are not good looking..
2. Good looking girls are not good..
3. Good looking, good girls are not single..
4. Good looking, good girls who are yet single have strong brothers..
After finished reading it, I chuckled and gave her mobile back..
She looked into my eyes with a smile and asked, "true, ah??".
I laughed little loud and said, "yeah.. i think so..!".
"So, I'm not good looking, is it?", she asked. Her face turned little serious.
"No.. no.. no.. noooo.. You are beautiful", when the words came out of my lips, i started sensing whats going on. But my statement doesn't seem to have made her happy.
"oh..!", she paused for a second and then continued, "so then, i'm not a good girl, ah?", she looked straight into my eyes.
'God!!', i whispered to myself..
"No dear! I didn't say like that.. You are a verrry good and a nice person.. You knew it", i said aloud..
"But just now you said, that SMS is true.. That is, good looking girls are not good and good girls are not good looking"
"No no.. there were other statements also right..", she didn't let me finish.
"What other statements..? Obviously I'm not a married girl, so that rules out the third statement.. and I don't have any brother.. So, i fit into any of the first two only right?"
"But honey..", again she cut me off in the middle..
"You say that I'm good looking and you also say that I'm a good girl.. One or the other is a lie and I want to know which one it is.."
'uffffff', I sighed. I was racing inside my mind.. 'what to say.. what to say.. quick.. quick.. aaaahhhhhhhh.. what to say.. what to..'
"Honey, listen.. listen..!! You fit into the third category.. 'not single' need not mean that you are married.. it can also mean that you are committed.. like.. you are committed to me.. you are beautiful.. you are very good.. but you are committed to me and that makes you 'not single'.. right?", I was desperate to see her reaction.. and, 'yessss..', a smile started glowing on her lips..
I continued, "see.. a gorgeous.. good girl.. committed to me.. how lucky i'm..!!", she blushed and smiled..
I didn't want her to think over my answer.. "Come on.. let me give you a hug..", I grabbed her and whispered at her ears, "ok.. tel me.. who sent you that SMS to you?" ['I wanna kick his a**', i said it to myself..]
She pushed me, "wait..", her eyebrows gone up.. She was thinking, "oh.. no.. not again!!", i said it to myself..
