I felt there was so much information in those two lines. My brain initiated the self-talk:

**What do three smileys mean? Did I make her laugh only thrice? No, it was more than that, I hope. But, there is something about the number three? Three is the number of words in 'I Love You'. Wait. Three is also the number of words in 'I Hate You'. No. Why would she hate me? If she hated me, she would not have given her number. Wait. Is the number genuine or did she just pull a fast one on me? Only a phone call can answer all these questions.**

I started musing; thinking about what I would say to her and how she would react. I was rolling over the bed from side to side; thinking. Thinking. Thinking. BAM! I fell off my bed.

**Ouch! That hurt! Hey nutcase! Stop this nonsense. 'Falling for someone' is just a figure of speech. These plans are no good. Just be the guy you were in the evening. Just be that spontaneous smart ass.**

So, I made a plan that I wouldn't plan.

(The following evening, I dialled the number given to me. I was curious as to who would answer the call or if the number did exist. I hoped for the best and prepared for the worst.

I heard a dial tone. **Okay, it is a real number. Stage 1 clear.**
 My heart started beating rapidly. I was breathing as if I had just attempted to break the world record of holding the breath for the longest time. Five rings down the line, someone answered.)



 "Hello?"



(It was her. **Stage 2 clear.**

 

The feeling was better than winning that world record.)

 



** Dude, this is real! Stop being so pessimistic. Step on the pedal and bring up your game!**


"Hello??"

Me:

 

"Am I talking to Ms. Rose?"
She:

 

"Yeah?"

Me:

 

"Ma'am this is to inform you that, a table for two has been booked at L9 Cafe for tomorrow at 7 pm."

She:

 

"Okay but who am I talking to?"
Me:

 

"The guy you are having dinner with."

She:

 

"My Goodness!! How did you change your voice?"
Me:

 

"Let's say it is one of my lesser known skills."

She:

 

"What's with the fake British accent?"
Me:

 

"Hey! I practiced those lines 15 times! Acknowledge the effort!"

She:

 

"The British are excellent with phone manners. You need to introduce yourself before asking for the person on the other end or conveying a message."
Me:

 

"Oh yeah, I forgot to ask you. When are the classes starting?"

(She giggled.)
 
She:

 

"I knew you wouldn't be following the

 

3 Day Rule

."
Me:

 

"How so?"

She:

 

"Because you don't rely on techniques and cliches. You are spontaneous and I feel you speak from your heart."
Me:

 

"Yeah beware! That thing is coming after you....really fast!"


(She gave that amazing laugh. A sound which was melody to me.)


She:

 

"What if I said I was busy tomorrow?"
Me:

 

"Okay there is no

 

reservation

. I was just confirming your presence. My next call would be to L9 Cafe, however."

She:

 

"You are really an idiot!"
Me:

 

"Yeah! I fell for you. Head first!"

She:

 

"I think I know that feeling."
Me:

 

"I am kind of banking on that."

She:

 

"I can't wait to see you tomorrow."
Me:

 

"Well a great Chinese proverb goes like this: It is the space between the bars, that holds the cage. The waits between our dates are what will make them special."   

 



She:

 

"How can you be so sure of having more than a first date?"
Me:

 

"Well yesterday, I wasn't even sure of having a first date; when you left the room unannounced. Then I found my bookmark. Seems, I am good at picking up on hints."

She:

 

"I am sorry if you were hurt when I left like that. I was praying that you'd notice it and call me as soon as possible. "
Me:

 

"No don't be. Of course, it felt brutal for a few seconds. But hey, I liked your style. That's what made me admire you even more. Even you are unconventional. That was one hell of a way to give someone your number! I got that bookmark laminated, by the way. "

She:

 

"I don't want this call to end. "
Me:

 

"Well a......."

She:

 

"No! Don't give me that crappy

 

Chinese

 

thing of yours!"
Me:

 

"Alright! But take it easy lady! We are going to a

 

Chinese

 

place tomorrow!"

She:

 

"How did you know I liked Chinese?"
Me:

 

"Yesterday you were reading 'Journey to the West'  by

 

Wu Cheng’ en

; I took a blind shot, which reached its target just about now."

She:

 

"Ridiculous logic!"
Me:

 

"I am an idiot. Remember?"

She:

 

"You are also cute."
Me:

 

"Are you flirting with me?"

She:

 

"No! I was talking to my candle, right here."
Me:

 

"You are good. Too good! Okay. See you tomorrow. I need to make a call to the restaurant before they are sleepy."

She: "Bye."
