I took L out of Lover


It’s been three months now since I broke up with Nikita. Even wearing the tees gifted by her didn’t hurt anymore, so I can conclude that it’s all over. I scrapped Tanu to check if she’s around; I’ve been very active at Orkut lately, the forum where I met her. My first scrap was a hysterical comment on one of her pictures, a trademark. And to my surprise, her reply had an equally potent punch, a quality that caught my attention and my fancy, same time.

I was about to leave when she called in to cancel our movie plan. We were to meet at “The Forum” yesterday for a late night show. My mind was lost in thinking all the possible reasons for her canceling our date; some last minute urgency was her excuse. I was knocked out of my thoughts with a shrill sound. My phone displayed “Tanu calling”. Hey, I’m sorry for yesterday. I’m going to Fuga tonight, wanna join me there, she sounded excited.

And our next first date was planned. Just look at yourself Mr. Gandalf, look at your beard, and better get a haircut as well. Shoot! Its already 5 PM and going by Bangalore’s deadline to city’s nightlife, I should be there by eight. The barber was busy as always. A swarm of wannabe doods getting facials, uncles getting their almost vanished strands coloured and a couple of friendly neighbourhood spidermans spinning their cobweb on the TV remote, a typical scenario.

Bhaiya, a shave and a haircut, normal spiked, how much time is it going to take, I enquired. Those fifteen minutes ended after almost two hours but I was definitely looking better, cleaner and more human. I always made sure that I comply with the basic rules: look good, smell good and taste good. And looking good never meant that one should be good looking, it’s just that one should be presentable and it was time to take care of this requisite. After emptying half of my wardrobe, I finally found my outfit for the evening, my last clean t-shirt, a spunky black one with an almost clean pair of blue jeans. Sometimes, it’s good to be a guy, at least while dressing up.

There she was, standing in her shimmering red top and a black mini, her raven black hair falling freely over her fragile shoulders and an oh-so radiating body. Man! She is hot, I thought and was thanking my lucky stars that she was my date for the evening. As the dance floor warmed to the house, we swayed after downing a couple of tequila shots. Things were heating up as the temperature was rising. She drew my face closer to her and what followed was a long lingering kiss.

More kisses were exchanged and we landed up at my place. She was standing in the dark shadows, her sculptured body silhouetted against the backdrop of lust simmering into steam. Our warm breath creating a music with the raised heartbeats. The eyes met eyes and mirrored the feeling; wrapped in my arms, those eyes succumbed and I to her gentle embrace. Lips were locked and the escorts were removed, two bodies melting into one.

Oh Nikita ! I am getting there baby…

What a title! What a picture! What a story! I'm in love with your writing style Mr AWESOME STORYTELLER!

Hahaha for the barber shop's scene:D

As for the "basic rules" funda...I can vouch that you follow all 3:D

And and and that line was so funny..."Sometimes, it’s good to be a guy, at least while dressing up." Vaise I still prefer being a girl while dressing up!

The last para seems familiar by the way:P

End ke liye taaliyan...that was the last thing I expected. Climax mein anti-climax *if you know what I meaan...hehehe"

Gonecase said...

Gunj:
Aji tasting good to simple hai, keep some mint handy. You might not like the taste but your partner will definitely appreciate it over a stale mouth :P

Gonecase said...

Sherry:
Short story king, lol...abhi tak to meri dukaan bhi nahi khuli hai, kyon maze leti hai ?? And the non-fiction factor is there because it can happen in real life as well, though its fiction yet :)

crasiezt said...

Feels very weird when you refer to me as "lady". Inni izzat ki aadat ni hai na:P

Sutta said...

As usual story telling was GREAT!
Start to finish, no faltu ke dragging plots. But just a query why all of your ending end at sex? :P

Chal anyways, tu bade kaam ki cheez lagta hai bhai. (Nahi nahi, galat na sochna). These words come from the filmmaker in me. :P

rashmi said...

good story, lovely blog, excellent pictures...

Solitaire said...

OOOOOOPS!

Gonecase said...

Sutta:
Thanks. As for the endings, I am a sex maniac, its roz ka doze for me, I'm obsessed with it :P

Aur bhai bolne ke baad galat nahi sochna tha, baaki zamana bada khraab hai mere bhai, hehe. Aur aapke andar ke filmmaker ke liye "shukriya shukriya" :D

Gonecase said...

Rashmi:
Thanks and welcome :)

Gonecase said...

Solitaire:

Gonecase said...

Crazy:
Oye sorry hai, miss ho gaya :| Mujhe pata hai gaali padengi badi saari par sach mein, pata nahi kaise miss ho gaya...
As for the izzat, naari jaati ka samman karna hi chahiye :P

crasiezt said...

Mera hi miss hona tha!!
I can totally understand "Goney". Inni saari "babes" jo aati hain tere page pe. Mera chota sa comment kho gaya bheed mein:-(
Izzat tu babes ki karta hai, baaki to sab fake hai, otherwise mujhe reply zaroor aaya hota:-(

Akshay said...

Barber shop scene cracks me up completely....they have been after my life to get highlights done to my hair..... "Sir aap to hairs highlight karwa lo... bahut cool lagoge" bull crap....Nice title too...

Gonecase said...

Crazy:
Oye nautanki...ye tera 'Goney' samajh raha hun mein ! Aur izzat doosri babes ki karta hun par chumma to tujhe hi chipkata hun na :P

Gonecase said...

Akshay:
Thanks man...par mujhe aapke hairs mein colour nahi dikh raha hai is pic mein, still hot eh , hehehe

dRoZzY!!! said...

now that's what i call a nice bed time story.

i hope you would have carried on for a couple of more paragraphs.

and the closing line was a bit cheeky....
"Oh Nikita ! I am getting there baby…"

how i interpret this is totally personal.
that's why i said you should have carried on for a few more paragraphs. women like men who last longer....

just kidding. i am sure you last much longer than that.

@gunj: to taste better, i feel it's always good to scrape your tongue, spit or swallow even if mint is handy. there should be no food stuck as cud in your mouth especially food that you did not have with your partner. toothpaste is a better option as compared to mint as it is stronger but it totally dries your mouth. use toothpaste only if your partner is so hot that you salivate all throughout.
:)

Good damage control:D Pitne waala tha tu:P
