Teenage Diaries- II

Dear Diary,
Something strange happened today. Tanay and I were out for shopping in the mall waiting for Sukriti at CCD. Sukriti had to join us there only. As always. Miss late she was. And this man, walked towards me. He asked us if he could join us for a while. The man looked elegant somewhere in his late thirties or early forties. Tanay was suspicious, but I let him stay. He introduced himself as Nitin Sahney, a writer and a journalist. He told us he was doing a story on teenagers that is why he wanted to talk to us.


I dont know, but I liked the flair with what he talked. He asked us if we could spend an hour or so every week with him. Tanay dint seem to mind. Sukriti seemed enthusiastic. I was somehow a little confused.
When I told mumma about the incidence, she told me to never see that man again. I am skeptical. Mumma always encourages to interact with people. But why all of sudden she was so stern and telling me "not to talk to strangers"? Weird it is.
I have never seen her so rigid before. Except when I last time asked her whereabouts of my father. All she said was he wanted to kill me before I was born so they separated.

Does this name Nitin Sahney got something to do with it?

I need to know.

Teenage Diaries

Dear Diary,

Today was my best birthday ever. Mumma woke me up with a nice smelling cup of coffee and huge poster of Robert Pattinson and a set of the Twilight series. At times I feel awkward talking to her about my admiration for the Edward Cullen's' character. But she says I am her friend, so I can share anything with her.
Sukriti and Tanay were here as expected to wish me birthday and escort me to school. I love them both. To my wonder, Tanay had brought a bunch of Tulips for me, I was expecting chocolates as always. And why did he tremble today while kissing me on my left cheek? We have grown up pulling each others' hair and teasing each other and now all of sudden this hesitation?


Everyone in school says that he is my boy friend. Does he too think the same?
School was good. Obviously, gone are the days of dressing up in casuals and distributing sweets, but yeah, Canteen treat is fun. Whole class was there. Sandeep sir came too. He gave me "How to kill a Mocking Bird." Does he have any idea that I like him?

Mumma kept her promise and was there to pick me after school. She took me, Tanay and Sukriti fro Lunch at Yo! China and some shopping later on. How we love Chinese food. I still have that ear to ear grin as I write this.

The biggest surprise was rather waiting at home. Mumma finally succeeded to make me keep a mobile phone. She bought me Samsung Corby Pink. I could not say no. hehe.. She says she wants to stay connected to me where ever I was.. Sukriti says moms are like that only.

Bade Mumma would be here any time with my favorite chocolate cake. She bakes the most delicious cakes in the world.

I am the luckiest person in the whole wide world to have the loved ones love me so much and have all my wishes fulfilled. Except one. When will I know where my dad is..

And the door bell rings.

TTYL Diary.

Love,
Rehmat.


P.S. This series is first person presentation of a teenage girl. The excerpts from her diary. A total new venture I am exploring. Next part coming soon..

The Confession


I felt too weak to stand up and walk or cover myself.
He just tore me apart and emptied himself.
I could not see him walk away as if I was just a utility with no emotions.
And before I knew anything, there was blood all around and a broken beer bottle in my hand.
