After winning Kiran’s friendship, I would hangout with, he would chew gutka and abuse Jagannath with choicest of swear words and he was love lorn. On the other hand Jagannath would do the same, their rivalry was turning more intense. Occasionally, when Jagannath finds Kiran lurking around our tutorials he would get into verbal argument and sometimes it would turn physical, I would intervene inbetween, to calm them down. Spandana would be embarrassed and sometimes leave the place in a hurry disturbed.
Darshan started to get annoyed with Kiran coming everyday and irritating our batchmates, he called to me the side and asked me not to side with Kiran as he was an outsider, I replied “all of us will be outsiders in few months, there’s no guarantee that we will join same college”, he lost his cool and angrily pointed his palm in disgust towards me shouted “you are an asshole, just to get your personal benefit you are fucking your own classmates” , I responded “what is it to you ?, I love her, want to spend my life with her and these two are a nuisance”, Darshan further added, “bastard, be practical, do you think you will ever end up with her, look at her , she’s brilliant and really nice girl, you are a moron, no body takes you seriously and I doubt even if you will take yourself seriously”, I lost my cool, swore at him and peddalled away.
I met Kiran and mentioned about Jagannath’s plan of coming near his college to beat him up, but he found funny and with all macho bravado just uttered “let him come”, I knew I was manipulating both of them to fight against each other.
Looking back I feel nothing but ashamed of myself, for being such a jerk.
