Blast the music… Lights on… Let’s party!! We have cute boys in our neighborhood.

It’s been over two months since we chased away the annoying mad couple, who used to be tenants in the house opposite to ours. The worst people on earth to have as neighbors… lovingly, we called them Fatso-Marvadi-Uncle and Bumsy-Aunty. Talk and laugh aloud, they would bang our door… have friends at home, she would scream at us… wear short skirts, he would give a horny stare! And we helpless girls reacted by religiously waking up early every morning to flick their newspapers and milk packets! Anyways, for whatever reasons, one fine day, they packed their bags and bid goodbye to the street making way for these much-awaited cute guys!

Week 1:
Half a dozen pretty girls and neighborhood cute guys were busy impressing each other. How? By establishing that we were disinterested in the other! However, whenever we met at Sankar Annan’s Dosa Kadai, we exchanged gentle smiles.

Week 2:
Caught yaaa! We started spotting next-door eyes staring at our windows. Hmm...guys aren't as smart as girls; they cannot handle anything complicated :p :p 

Week 3:
And, how long can we not react?! We sang to our hearts’ content,
“Peeping through the window, hey darlings…
What will the people say?
If you want to be our friend,
Come through the proper way!”

Week 4:
Nikki, one of my most enthusiastic roommates ran to us screaming,
 “Guess what?! The cutest of the lot is giggling at me. Time to start working on nurturing the relationship. Excuse me; I shall be back soon with more progress.”

Leaning against the balcony, flipping pages of big fat,
 “Assembly Programming and 8086 Microprocessor”, Nikki was fiddling with her Nokia mobile. Yet, all her focus was on Mr.Cutest. Through the corner of her eye, she glimpsed at him.

To her surprise, he asked, “Hello, how are you?”
That was definitely not expected! Softly she replied “Yeah… not bad”
Mr. Cutest,
 “How come you are awake at this time?”
Nikki looked at her watch; it was just 5:30 in the evening! She thought,
 “God...boys on this planet try so hard! She said, “Nothing much...preparing for my exam. Anyways, it is time for a break”. 

“Oh… that is bad. You shouldn’t have done that! Now, you make me feel guilty”
Nikky wondered,
 “Strange! Why the hell is he feeling guilty?” She said, “Come on, you are not at fault. Anyways, I have finished revising a couple of times!”

Revision? Really, Nikki? :D  

 “Wow… it's worth celebrating. Waiting for you to come over; let’s drive to Ooty this weekend. What say, honey?

Eyes popping out, she yelled, “What the fcuk?! What the hell do you think of yourself?”
Mr. Cutest getting up from his chair, “Excuse me, was that at me?”

‘Nikki The Furious’, in a minute became ‘Nikki The Idiot’ when she noticed the blue light flickering on his right ear. 

Nikki to herself,
 “God… this bloody bugger was flirting with some NRI idiot over phone!” She continues at Mr.Cutest, “Hey nothing; just Microprocessor lessons... was reading out from my textbook. Sorry, if it was a little loud.”

With absolutely no emotions, he got back to the person at the other end.

Nikki came to us with the verdict,
 “What a terrible guy yaar, not our kind. I give up; not interested!”
