“Isha, you better hurry up! We need to be ready to go soon,” Akanksha told me. She was supposed to be helping me pack my stuff for the school trip to Shirdi, but all she was doing was throwing random clothes into my suitcase.
“I’m going as fast as I can, Akky!” I replied to my best friend and took another quick glance at the clock. I may have been acting frustrated with her, but Akanksha was the greatest friend a girl could ask for. I knew we always looked out for each other, even if she did get on my nerves sometimes.
It was already half past two and we were definitely behind on our schedule. We were leaving tonight to go to one of the most famous pilgrimage destinations in India. Shirdi was in Maharashtra, and Sri Sai Baba’s temple over there was a major favorite with all the visitors. I couldn’t blame them; it was definitely one of the places I was most excited to see.
My phone started to ring and I stopped packing to ask Akky who was calling. “Kaun hai?”
She didn’t answer me; she didn’t answer the phone. All she did was stand there, staring at the screen and refusing to pass it over.
“Kaun hai, abey?” I asked again, louder this time.
“Abhay,” she replied in a shocked voice.
It was my turn to be shocked. “Abhay? What is he doing calling me?” I almost shouted.
“How do I know?”
I shook my head. “Akky, please answer it for me! I don’t want to talk to him, you know that.”
“Okay, only because you’re my best friend,” Akanksha said and answered the call.
“Thank you,” I mouthed.
Akky smiled and spoke into the phone “Hello, Abhay?”
No, it wasn’t Abhay Deol. It was Abhay Kulkarni, my ex best friend.
We have a very bitter relationship at the moment. He was one of the people I would have considered myself closest to until we had a massive fight, and now we weren’t even on speaking terms with each other.
But God gives you surprise gifts, right? Or should I say surprise grievances?
In that same way God had made me Head Girl of the school, and he made Abhay Kulkarni- one of the only people I didn’t get on well with- Head Boy. Thankfully, though, he also made Akky the Cultural Secretary and my other really good friend, Yohaan Naik, as the Sports Secretary. Together the four of us ran the school on behalf of the students, and as the office bearers we were to go to school only at three in the afternoon today for the school trip.
