I would sit on the back seat everyday, because she used sit on the front ones. No one would suspect me staring at her. Which was a usual. Talking to girls was never a hard thing for me. But just the gaze of her would bring that schoolboy grin on my face. Like an unconscious habit it developed. You know those times when you decide not to do something and moments later find yourself doing exactly that, and then you think, if only you had remembered what you decided.
Waking up every morning and thinking of an excuse to skip school that day. All those excuses taught me of how lies are caught. Those 1 percenters that worked, they were the lessons for life. And then that inner laughter, wearing my pajamas again, but that serious look on the face, that much needed look.
Playing hide and seek with those 10 to 15 neighbours, hiding at all those strange places. And then changing places unnecessarily just to take that risk, to live the thrill. And that one person who always get caught, getting rid of his company, that too with such diplomacy. We were never that childish as we think the children of that age are. And my favorite is the part when in my turn I would walk with that puffed up chest, that sense of superiority, freedom, and no fear, still wishing to have been hiding instead.
Those board games with cousins, those designs on the last page of the notebook, those scoldings, those fights with friends, those picnic trips, those dance classes, those cartoon shows, those friends and foes, and then we grew up. And I wish to re-live the past again, wish to scratch some more, and then I know how this goes. You know those times when you decide not to think of something and moments later find yourself thinking exactly about that, and you tell yourself, if only you had remembered what you decided. And then I wish the day to pass, for tomorrow, to arrive fast.
