I do… All thanks to my brother. It was no normal ride, his girlfriend was also sharing the not-so-spacious seating space on that bike.
And, yes…this happened at 2 am on a Friday night. That Friday night started on a rather promising note for me. One of the most talked about parties was taking place in our city and I was going there with Atul. We had just started dating and, in a way, this was the first time we were partying as a couple. Atul came to my office to pick me up and first we had a nice dinner. You know the awkwardness people feel during the initial days of dating? We were slowly getting over that phase.
We had a good conversation over dinner and I was pretty excited about the party. My friends were joining us there too. However, the party that we were so excited about turned out to be not so great.
After an hour or so, we decided to go somewhere else. He asked me if I would like to go with him and naturally my answer was yes - I wanted to spend as much time with him as possible. When I think about it now, going with him back to the party venue was a big mistake. As Atul and I were walking towards the pub, I saw my cousin brother standing right outside the entrance.
As for me… I was feeling angry, embarrassed and sad. While the two of us waited he went to get his bike oh, how I hate that bike and thus the most uncomfortable ride of my life began. Throughout that twenty minute ride home, my brother and his girlfriend kept shouting at each other I never found out what they were fighting about and I did my best to keep myself and my dignity intact by clutching to my brothers waist with both my arms. I somehow reached home and after dropping me, my brother and his girlfriend continued with their ride and their fight, eventually going out of sight.
Why were you two shouting so much? But then I had already had a rough night and was in no mood to entertain her questions. So I just made some silly excuse and went to bed. While it was obviously not a pleasant experience, today, what happened that night makes me laugh. And yes, I learnt how to avoid bumping into my brother whenever I was on a date.
