Bloom Girl


Standing in a room , smiling and talking with people suddenly a hand grabbed my waist from the side and with a deep voice , he said , ” My Lizz ”. As I turned to see his face, a familiar voice called me , ” Lily ….Lizz wake up , its 15 to be 8 …get up lazy girl ”. My mother knocking and shouting at my door. I open my eyes only to realized , Holy shit …what was that dream . I have a boyfriend in my a dream, ….wow great ! but not even a admirer in real life….Bravo lizz ! . I cursed my dream.

Even in the month of June , Principal likes to give a 15 minutes of boring lecture during the assembly. The souring temperature is already heating me up and other students too meantime he is giving lectures about Addiction . He said , ” students , nowadays addiction is becoming passion to you isn , addiction of drugs, addiction of social media , and addiction of boyfriend and girlfriends too …..Am I right ” . bla bla bla I didn care to listen. At the last part of the speech he usually likes to give examples and I heard him saying, ”During the last April I saw a girl from our school….. probably must be a senior, she was near the wine shop leaning on a bike ”.

Irritated by lecture I put my head down to checked my watch, and realized he still has 5 minutes. Then I looked up and turned to the other side of the row and all of a sudden my mind went blank.

I saw Biraj giving me a incriminating look. I am surprised by his looked, it caught me off guard . Trying to comprehend his looked I heard a voice from background, ” I saw her talking to a boy who was walking towards her . I guess, he was her boyfriend. She didn see me ” .

My mind pops …a girl , on a bike ,in the April then I froze …. ” holy shit …shit..Now I am doomed ”.

I know that exact incident . Yes , During the month of April , a girl did leaned on bike near wine shop and yes she did talked to a guy and that guy did buy a beer, but that guy is my brother and that girl is me.

our principal added again, ”My dear students, I am telling you this incident because I don want you to spoil your life like her. She chose to roam around with some drunkard boy when she had a great life ahead. Luckily, a boy was not from our school. If you know her, please be careful of her , she can spoil you too ” .

with this he concluded his speech.

Oh my gosh ! Now I have become a spoiled girl who will ruin her company. Those words are heavy for me none but the principal had humiliated me like I am some kind of a junkiee girl who roams around with her boyfriend all the time. I can believe… how can he imprint my character like that without even confirming the Truth. At least he could have asked me. But no, he will say whatever he presumed. Our principal always choose between right and wrong. He never decide the situation on mutual concept. Perhaps I must be in great danger now.


April 11th – Normal spring day , I am at home convincing my brother to take me to the book store in town on his bike. He never listen me to without any rewards.

” see… if you take me I will buy you a beer ” . I said

” what ? are you bribing me ” . Rajan narrowing his eyes.

” oh yeah…Ofcoz you are an honest man I forgot ”. I mocked him. I added, ” Don be a drama queen and don forget, I do know some secrets about you. I can guarantee you that I am not a good secret keeper ” .

” You spoil brat ” . He said with surprised and he shouted at mother , ” Mom teach her some manners ”.

After buying my books , we start to head back home. However on a way at the outskirts of town , there was a wine shop , by stopping near he said , ” come on give me the reward ” .

” what ? do you still want it ” . I asked

” please , no lectures just give the money ”. He said with irritated look.

I just gave him the money. I knew he wanted the beer to relaxed himself. As we are about head back home a show a resemblance of principals car. but then I didn care.

Sitting in a classroom still thinking about my dreadful situation. Riya voice me ” lizz , go and give your money ” .

” huh..! ” . I said confusingly.

” There ” pointing towards the Biraj bench. He was collecting the money for excursion.

” oh yeah ” . I replied.

I head towards Biraj bench, as soon as I reached near, line was no longer anymore. There was only one girl ahead of me. After 2 minutes my turned arrived, I handed the money however without taking it ,he actually looked up at me. We eye each other for a second and then he said, ” So , was it good? ”.

I stared him confusingly.

For a second I didn understand his words but when he looked back at me , I understand exactly what he is trying to say.

” What the f*** do you know? ”. I spit back skipping the F word.

I looked at him with fire on my eyes..He stared at me too. I can see a anger on his eyes although he was trying to draw a smile. Realising the guys around us, he looked away and I turned back towards my bench.

Riya asked , ” What Happened? ”.

I replied , ” nothing ” .

” don lie darling ” . She said , ” I can see you boiling ”.

” its really nothing ” . I lied to her.

She looked at Biraj first and back at me . She can sense that something was pishing between me and him.

what was he trying to do? Were he trying to mock me or he was being just sarcastic. Perhaps he thinks that I am still his friend. But it didn sound like friendship jokes, he sounded more like some kind of powerful authority who wants an answer immediately.

Biraj and I are childhood friends. We used to play together along with village friends. He used to act a part of being my partner. At the age of 5 he used to tell elders that he likes me. Therefore some elders starting teasing us and called us a cute couple. We didn know what it mean that time. With the growing age we drifted apart. We began to realised what does the like mean. Now our friendship is completely abandoned. He never talks to me friendly and neither do I. Indeed I never have hard feelings towards him , but now , I guess….I DO.

We are trying to find a free table with plates on our hand at the canteen. Riya pointed towards the edge of the room, there was a free table.

As we are heading towards the table I saw Armann, Pijush , Biraj and one junior guy sitting opposite to our table. When they saw us, they smile. But Biraj didn .

” Hey Girls ” Armann from his seat with a flirty smile.

” Hello ” Riya smiled too.

” Isssh ” I mocked both their gestures.

”could you be more friendly ” Armman said .

”I thought that was only for Riya ” I replied.

Arman teased, ” somebody is jealous ” .

Pijush and that junior guy laughed. Riya too but Biraj just seems focus on his food.

I ignored Armans comment because I already had so much of dehydrating comments and couldn bear anymore.

” Lizz I just want to asked just you a general question, Have you ever talked to a guy with female voice ”. Armann always teased me for my husky voice. And he knows exactly where to hit me. He always likes to crossed my mind whenever he get chance . It hurts my ego too.

So he used the opportunity in every possible way to infuriate me. But this time no way, I am not gonna give him that chance.

Meantime a brilliant idea came to my mind . One month ago I once saw a video on the internet about physiological tricks and I am pretty sure it will shut him up.

I said teasingly , ” I too want to ask you a question ”. ”what? ”. He said smilingly

”do you like me? ” . I blaffed.

His smile turned into suspicious.

”because the way you always teased me, it seems to me like , You do ”. I added with wicked smile.

Riya choked and look at me with wide eyes open. Birai paused from eating. Other boys gave teasing smile to Armann.

Huh! I said on my mind. I SUCCEED. I really caught him off guard. He was speechless.

Then suddenly Biraj stand up and leave. Nobody said anything . Riya and I finished our lunch and came back to classroom.

Our class gets over at 2:30 noon. As I am about to leave with Riya , a deep gentle voice called me, ” Lily ”.

I turned to see the person and I saw Biraj standing a few steps away right behind me .

” Can I talk to you for a second? ”. He asked. I nodded.

Riya leave my hand and went ahead.

”I want to apologised for the earlier ”. He said with low deep voice.

” you mean mornings incident ”. I asked.

”yeah ”. He replied.

” Its okay ” I assure him.

We stand there in silence for a 5 seconds without knowing what to say to each other. I really hate this type of moment because when awkwardness prevail, even a second feels like a minute. So as I turned back to leave he called again. This time he surprised me.

” Lizz… wait! ”. He called.

I turned my half body and looked at him in suspicious way. That Lizz word have really caught me off guard. It has been years since he had called me , ” Lizz ”. He was the first boy to ever called me by that name besides my parents.

” With whom were you? ”. He sounded curious. surprised by his question I said , ” what ? ”.

” when principal saw you ” he asked again.

”oh… I was with my brother ”. I replied.

He said nothing but looks satisfied.

So I said , ”okay then, bye ”.

He replied too, ” bye ” in a low voice.

Walking towards the gate, I thought , its really awkward to talk to him, now. Time changes everything. It had change me, and I guess, him too.

I saw Riya still standing near the gate. when I reached near her I said, ” you didn have to wait for me ”. She smiled.

” What was he talking about? ”. Riya asked.

” Nothing, casual ” . I sighed. I can the disappointment in her face.
