To dream of love...

I got into my car. After a long day of work, all I wanted to do was sleep! I asked the driver to take me home.
I checked my cell for any messages or calls. Three calls from Mother! I called her and told her I'll be home in another 30 minutes. No messages from Nikhil. Wishful thinking.
I laid my head on the seat, stashed away the phone in my bag.
He held my hand in his. I looked to my right. Nikhil was sitting, reading something on his cell. I squeezed his hand lightly. Tearing his eyes from his cell, he looked at me and smiled. His eyes locked with mine.
Just the sight of him made my heart skip a beat! He didn't even know that my heart does that for him.
He set his cell aside.  I snuggled closer to him, resting my head on his shoulders. Being near him, somehow felt so reassuring. I just wanted to stay like that forever. The silence didn't hurt. The ache in my back did!
"Long day?" he asked.
"Hmmm. Very long. Very tiring!"
"Tell me about it."
"You don't wanna know."
"Of course I do."
"Then how come you never call. Or ask. Or spend some time alone. You know I'd like it."
"You never said so."
"Well, I just did! I like you, and I treat you special. I want to feel the same."
There was no reply.
I turned to look at him. Umm, there was no him!
I looked at my palm cupping the air, waiting for someone to slide a hand in.
Crap! I'd drifted off to sleep!
People say dreams come true! I wanted to make sure this one did.
I retrieved my cell from my handbag.
I dialed Nikhil.
"Hey!" said the voice at the other end.
"Long day?" he asked.
My heart skipped a beat!

Exam? What the hell!

I have an exam to write tomorrow!
And here I am writing to you guys!

And that's because I've done everything else I could to distract myself from pages and pages of the boring-ly theoretical audit paper I have tomorrow. My under-grad audit paper.
Sitting at home, with the Celsius chart soaring, I could feel the bout of laziness coming over me in the morning itself! After much deliberations with my boss, I'd managed to get an off today. And there I was studying for half an hour at a go and taking a one hour break thereafter!
I watched half of Gossip Girl, then returned to 'Is the auditor a watchdog or bloodhound?'. Later, I tuned into a sci-fi comedy Fantastic Four followed by how audit is different from investigation. So bored was I that I went on Facebook after really long and liked statuses and pics randomly, installed, tried, then uninstalled apps on my phone and even checked out my Pinterest profile! All the while studying in between, mind you!
I still have around 30 pages to read. I've just tried on a new shade of nail paint. Read two pages. Started writing this post on insistence of my friend Ritika, who by the way, is in a worse state than me! She has 50 pages left to read!
Now that I've updated you guys, I guess I'll have to start studying again.
But before that, sorry Boss but I really, really am studying! Just with a little too many breaks in between!
