“Enough is Enough!” she said to herself.
Minutes later when she gained consciousness, she heard a voice.
She squinted her eyes and saw a faint reflection of a man patting her cheeks. She swiftly moved away and said, “I’m alright.”
“By the way, tell me something about you?” Jennifer asked Cyrus, tapping her mobile phone unremittingly, her eyes focussed on the game that she was playing on her mobile phone.
“There is nothing interesting about my life, Jennifer,” Cyrus said to which Jennifer quickly riposted, “Seriously dude?!”
Now Jennifer’s view on Cyrus being a boring guy got confirmed.
“It’s just that my parents forced me to take Engineering after my 12th and I had to acquiese to their demands,” he said, sounding low.
“The other day you mentioned that you were pursuing your law,” Jennifer looked at his eyes for once.
“Yes, it finally dawned to me that I had to do what I was interested in. Engineering was never my cup of tea. I quit my Engineering in my 3rd year and joined a Law college affiliated to the Delhi University,” he said and continued, “You might think of me as a fool!”
“No, not really! Its sometimes good to listen to your heart and you did the right thing,” she said and smiled.
“My conscience knocked me hard to make me understand that what I was doing was wrong and I should in fact do something that I loved and yes it was right,” he said and continued, “Engineering would have ruined my life!” He winked.
After sipping a cup of hot tea, he said,”And I am already in my final year of Law.” Their gaze locked.
Cyrus’s joke got her out of her reverie and she gave him a startled look.
