Sam was such a gentleman. In this era of shooting stars, he was the one that twinkled prominently. He was honest, smart, good-looking, decent and had a sound financial and family background. Music was his only love, he always believed until he saw khanak for the first time. It was love at first sight for him. Though he took a very long time to finally decide to confess it to her because he wanted to be sure of his own feelings. On the other hand, khanak was too a bit of like him, his perfect 'other half’. After numerous times of failed attempts, this time he decided to get drunk (for the first time) and call her to spit out the truth at once. He asked his friends to arrange some good wine for him, got drunk and called her. She picked up his call at once as if she was waiting for his call. He listened to her 'Hello' and before she could ask or say anything, he said, "Khanak, I love you since the first day I saw you and only after a span of five years, I could muster the courage to call you and spill my heart out to you." He eagerly waited for her reply and she just said, "Okay" and disconnected his call. He was happy, nervous and nonplussed at the same time. He did not even blink once whole night out of the excitement to see her next morning in the college. Finally, the alarm rang and the time to get ready for the college arrived. He got dressed up in his favourite shirt and jeans, applied the best of perfumes in his collection, the most expensive shoes and watch, he wore and sat in his car to head towards the college. As soon as he entered the classroom, his eyes wandered restlessly to catch the sight of her. She was sitting on the last bench. He approached her and she reacted as usual, as if nothing happened. He got little worried but still in his quivering voice he asked her to meet him in the college garden in the break. They finally met and he straight away sought her reply. Listening to him she got little confused and then he explained her that last night they had a phone conversation but to his surprise she did not remember anything. She removed her phone and checked the call log. She then said, "Oh, you called and we spoke as well but I dont remember anything about this because my friend got me drunk for the first time and I was so much drunk that I literally can not recall anything. I am so sorry, can you please repeat?" To which, he spoke to himself, "All my money spent on that exclusive wine went in vain. This girl is getting so expensive even before saying yes and I may get insolvent once she gets along." He laughed at himself and said, "Could you please help me to cook "Khayali pulav...oops...sorry...some good Indian Dishes?" To which she laughed and said, "You got your lifetime imprisonment fixed, getting prepared and all? I Mean marriage." They both laughed and moved ahead towards their classes while the boy was confused whether to praise or curse that ‘so expensive Wine'.
