"Sin 2x is equal to 2 Sin x Cos x, which is 2 ta..."


"Hey dude.. How many ex do you have!", the one next to me asked with curiosity. A lame joker (Lj) he is, at times corny and most of the times 'h' took over 'c'. It was our mathematics class, just before our lunch hour. The tube lights puzzled our eyes after undergoing several reflections by the convex head of our teacher. The stomach started barking out loud and we started looking at our watches. Teacher looked at me, I stared at him, he saw his watch and I gazed at mine. We stared again at each other, "he's going to end the class yaar!!", Lj whispered in my ears. "Tan 2x is equal to 2 tan x divi..", he continued is weird chants. Idlis turned red and so we, yet confined them in the tiffin heart of ours. 


*snap*


We exchanged our rice and roti, along with a few words. Suddenly we were able to smell the aroma of flowers, typically roses. The eyes looked for the source and the nose felt it at hand. "What the luck!", I screamed, losing my mind. "What the luck!", everyone uttered at me again. Well, the guy beside me was romancing in correspondence. "But why should I bother about that !!", I asked. "She's your crush dude..", Lj spoiled my mood again. "Just wait and watch.. I will confess my love to her very soon", I murmured. 


*snap*


It was our game hour, right after a full fledged meal. We were peeking through the window, waiting for the master's arrival. "Hey dude.. Look there. Our science teacher.. I think he's going to get a loan from our physical trainer with no redemption", Lj, a mere pessimist apart from 'h come corny.' "Listen... If science teacher comes inside our class just shout that you want game hour", I said. Lj nodded his head and the king felt the presence of his mighty commander. Beetles and bees and flies composed the endgame music for us. Science teacher made his arrival slowly inside our class. We made us ready to shout, protest against the violation. "We want game houurrrrrrrrr!!!", I was able to hear my scream very well. The entire flock of boys and girls stared at me & I looked at Lj. "Didn't you!?" I asked. "Bu..But you didn't make... make a countdown yaar!", he replied. Me, the Ironman is dead. Thor and Captain America shed some crocodile tears and Brendan's death song was played.


*snap*


Earlier we had a stressful maths & now science seems to be stressful. "Am I even a good student? What's my duty at this age other than studying?", I asked to myself. "Self realization ah dude!?", Lj asked me and laughed out loud. "Firstly I need to cut off this friendship yaar." The weather was chill and earlier I emptied half of my water bottle. So!? Yes, it's obvious. "Sir, Can I use the restroom?', I asked and he said yes in a severe tone, as if I was going to use his. Even the plane looking arenas seems to be gorgeous when explored in solitude. Restrooms top the list of mine. My friends used to kick the doors of the toilet and I warn them not to do. But now, it's time to explore... I was kicking the doors restlessly and I wasn't alone in the arena. A second person was performing his after digestion process. I kicked the door and it opened. He looked at me and I stared at him, he felt outrageous and I realized. He wasn't a student, but our maths teacher. 


*snap*


I rushed to my classroom and was short of breath. "What happened dude!", Lj asked. "I saw everything daa..." My mind was pondering over the consequences. I could ask him sorry, bu... but at what cost? "Students, take notes of what I am saying", he said. I searched for a pen inside my bag and caught hold of one. A blue pen and a candy too. Just when none noticed, I unwrapped it and put inside my mouth and started taking notes. When the violins were playing the last note of music for me, the guy beside me enjoyed it, a love note. All of a sudden we were able to sense some burning smell. I looked at my tummy and laughed. "This fellow is ridiculous yaar!!", stage of realization it was.

I found myself in the centre of my school. Co-ed school it is yet, the number of girls to whom I have spoken is cipher. 

*crying in silence* The entire atmosphere was pervaded by the flames, students and staffs running for life and a few trying to extinguish the fire. "Ohh chitt.. How did this happen!" Even before coming to know about it I found myself in an unusual attire. A full blue constume with a red colour cape. Why am I wearing my underpants the other way!? Oh wait... DC character in a Marvel reference!


*usual snap* 


I was in the air, fluttering without wings. "With great power comes great responsibilities", wearing a DC costume I was blabbering Spiderman dialogue *character adaptability level 0* There were screams all over, a majority escaped and a very few were stuck in rooms. In search of men and women to be rescued, the first person was he, 'convex headed' figure, as I refer him, our maths teacher. He remained unconscious, inhaling a few tonnes of fumes. Making him lay on the back, I tried to retrieve him shaking and yelling. Applied some basic knowledge of CPR, interlocking my fingers and compressing his chest. Nervous yet determined, and it proved to be successful. He opened his eyes, I made him stand. "You need to memorize the trigonometric formulas", he whispered in my ears and smiled. We stared at each other and were left with no words but a few tears of joy. 


*snap*


I found myself hanging from the ceiling, right before the door of a room. "69", the number was imprinted on the door. Oops, "96" it is, I realized on standing along the gravity. There were a few muted screams and I kicked the door, with my PhD in restroom. There she was, who remained in my heart as so called 'crush', pouring down tears sitting in the very edge of the room. A perfect heroic moment one could ever get. I extended my hands, we stared at each others eyes, and she caught hold of mine. 


*snap*


A crew of people gathered near our school, hearts filled with fear, a few thanking the unrevealed spirits. Fortuitously everyone were rescued safely. Ambulances arrived along with a few police officers. A moment of joy inhabited the hearts and tears rolled down the cheeks on finding their souls, as they were. She was standing there, burnt rooms and the injured walls behind her were now a hothouse. I made my way slowly towards her. A glimpse of shy yet adored that moment. She held my hands, and the heart muted itself for a second. "Rahul... I lov"


*snap*


I opened my eyes. "How many times should I call you? There was a small fire accident in our neighbors house", my mom yelled at me. I was sitting right before my mobile phone attending my online class. "Sin 3A is equal to 3 SinA minus...", our maths teacher was uttering the trigonometric formulas. "Hey dude! Day dreaming ah!!", I received a notification from Lj. "I need to cut off this friendship yaar..", I realized but laughed at myself this time. 


A candy was left on my table. Unwrapped it slowly and placed it gently on my tongue. "Mm... Sweeettt..."
