Blindly In Love Part 9, I started flipping pages through the diary reliving snippets from my life.
20th June 2008
Today was the 1st day of 4th grade at my new school. I was really scared. I had no friends here. I had told my dad not to shift here as I will lose all my friends but he didn’t listen. So I stood in front of class 4th B wondering whether to go inside or not. Just as I was about to run away my class teacher saw me and took me inside.
She then looked at my id and then introduced me to my class. They all were staring at me. I wanted to run away from there. Then my teacher pointed to an empty seat next to another girl.I went slowly to the girl and sat down. I was scared to talk to her as she might judge me.Then to my delight, she introduced herself “Hey my name is Diya.What’s ur name?”
“Ta …Ta..Tanya.”I still couldn’t muster up the courage to tell my name.
“Nice to meet you, Tanya,” Diya said and smiled again.
I had found my best friend.

Today was the most exciting day of my life. I sang in front of my class which I never thought I could. But guess who helped me gather up the strength to do it? Diya. That’s right. When my teacher asked me to sing, this is what happened.
“I don’t think I can do this Diya. This is just not possible.Why did she have to ask me to sing?”I asked .”Because she has heard you sing before Dumbo, like me. And I know you will stun everyone.Now go up there and kick some ass.” She said and we both started giggling. She lightened my mood up. I still whined for some more time and she scolded me for the same amount of time and finally encouraged me to go up.
And guess what I kicked everyone…..you know and all thanks to Diya.

Today the boys made fun of my hair and started pulling it. I started crying and tried to hit them but couldn’t. Suddenly the boy holding my hair fell down crying in pain. And the rest of the boys ran away seeing this. I couldn’t understand what happened until I turned back and saw Diya standing there grinning and holding a metal compass box.
19th March 2011
Diya and I had a pre -Holi celebration today. Both of us gathered water balloons and went up the terrace of my building and started throwing balloons at random people. God! it was so much fun…at least for us, We kept throwing balloons at the aunties of the other building, random kids etc. It was fun until by mistake we hit my dad with the balloon and all his important papers got wet. We got a sound scolding for that but we got it together so I didn’t feel that bad.

Diya and I made a new year resolution of losing weight together as we looked very fat now. We decided not to eat anything and be like those supermodels on TV………………

Okay! We both broke our resolution but we had to.The school canteen got a new vending machine and we had to try it out and we just couldn’t stop ourselves so we decided that from today we will really stick to our resolution. (Let’s see!)

We participated in a doubles Badminton competition in our school and guess what we won.We really won.I mean we came second but still, it was a victory for us. But had Diya not been on my team I would have lost the 1st round itself………

We participated in school drama together.It was amazing……….

I discovered my passion for art and Diya went crazy seeing my drawings.It felt awesome seeing her reactions to my drawings……….
26th March 2015
Today was our last subject of board exam and the toughest-Maths. Diya and I hugged each other like it’s the last time we are going to see each other and entered the classroom like prisoners about to be killed.We survived.
I flipped more pages of the diary and then closed it.
Nivin’s message came up on my phone suddenly ”Meet me at the coffee shop tomorrow. 4 pm?”
Blindly in love
