I woke up as my Alram rang and it’s 7:30 am. The reason why I am waking up this early is that I am going to college after a month. I had no plans of going to college but I got a call from college management that if I continue to be absent I won’t be allowed to sit in exams and I couldn’t have let that happen in any way. While I stood up from my bed I started to think what am supposed to tell the discipline committee that would have got ready to grill me to know why I was away from college for 1 long month and that too without a leave or a single mail to college Discipline committee. While I was thinking about it I started to laugh thinking if tell them that I fixing my best friend’s love life. I laughed so hard that I hit my head to wall and started to laugh again. While I was thinking and laughing my phone buzzed and it was Zaara’s message. I opened my snap chat and she was explaining me what she saw in the dream. I told her that haider had same dream. She sends heart emjo with a message in which she said that they still remember the time they were together. I told her that it hasn’t been that long since they broke up, so the things are still fresh and that there’s nothing being emotional about it. She was fast to taunt by messaging “That’s why he had a new relationship soon after we broke up ” . I was annoyed at this message but I didn’t react to it as i didn’t want to have a fight or a long conversation with her as I had to get ready for college. “I am collage after a long time, so I don’t want to ruin my mood”. I messaged her and kept my phone on charging and went to take bath and started to laugh while thinking about what to tell discipline committee. I played “Tajder E Haram ” by Atif Aslam on the speakers that I have kept in bathroom just because I love listening music while having a bath , it just refreshes me . I took my in 20 minutes, wore my uniform, combed my hair, grabbed my phone and while climbing down the stairs, I started to check message from zaara, it was a reply from her. She wished me a good luck. I said a thank you and kept my phone in pocket, had my breakfast and sat in the car to leave for college. I took out my phone as Drive started to drive; I pulled out my phone my pocket and messaged Haider telling him that I will in college. He called me as soon he received the message. He tried to convey me that I instead of going to college I come to his home, but I told him that I received a call from Disciplinary committee and that they have asked me to be present in front of them today. I told Haider that I have nothing to escape notice of Discipline committee and that I may be removed as the President of Literature club which I didn’t wanted to happen at any cost. Haider gave me courage by saying that I have been awarded President of Literature club and I have played a curel part in expanding it, so it won’t be an easy task for them to remove me. He said it in a well versed way that it boosted my moral. I said him thanks and disconnected the call. There was still much distance to be covered to reach college.
To kill the time I started to scroll through Instagram. I found many interesting posts which helped me in killing the time till I reached my collage. I got down from the car and asked driver to be on time. As entered the college permises students of Literature came to me and started to ask why I wasn’t attending college . This question wanted me to laugh but I somehow controlled and told them that my friend wasn’t doing good so I had to be there for him. They started to ask me about him , once I told them that he’s doing nice now they left while I asked them to be in the meeting hall after classes for a meeting in which I would review the work done in the month I wasn’t attending college. They said yes and went to their classes. My friend gives me loud call as I started to walk to towards my class. It was my collage’s best buddy David. David who comes from a very rich family who’s father got gold shopes in most parts of the world. David’s well build Hulkish body started to walk towards me and gave me a tight Hug and said “Raqif where have been “. I explained him why I was away from college and after listening he said a hmm and we both started to walk towards class. David was very popular in the college for who was. He became very popular within days of joining the college. None dared to talk him in high tune or in a disrespectful manner . While making our way to class everyone greeted David and he just moved his head a bit in response and that much was enough . It was only me who knew what he actually is. He’s funny and full of humour but he likes to be this way. I tried to ask him the reason from him for making his personality look so tough. But every time I asked he used to turn down the conversation saying “At appropriate Time I will tell you everything ” . He promised that he has nothing to hide from me and in reality he never had hiddden anything from me . But he was never comfortable about talking his personality that he has built. As we reached near the class a girl call him and we both turned back to see who it is . And as we turned back it was girl from the same collage but to what stream she belonged to. Yes may I please know who are you said David looking at her. David I am your senior and yesterday when you were in canteen you forgot this pen on the table. I tried to find you but you had left. She said while taking out pen out of her back. Here you go she said with a smile and told him that she has to go as it’s her call. David said her thank you and she left. I looked at David with anger and asked him “How can you forget the pen gifted by me , seriously David is that how you value my things ” I said and entrened the class and sat on a bench , Davud came running and sat by my side , now he was explaining me why he forgot the pen in canteen, while he was explaining me the teacher entered the class and we stood up to greet him. We will talk about it later i said to David with a simle to comfort him. He smiled back with a sign of agreeing. As the teacher asked us to sit my phone buzzed and it was message from Haider saying not to stress about discipline committee and wished me luck. I typed back a reply and kept my phone back in my pocket. The techer started to look at the faces of students and I got know he’s looking for me as he’s one of the members of the committee. Oh yes you have come he said as he spots me. Yes sir , I replied with a fake simle . Meet us in the office we have to talk to you he said to me while walking towards white board. David gave me a confused look as I didn’t tell him anything about it . I will tell you everything I whispered to him. Yes students let’s begin the teacher said and the class began leaving me with the thoughts of Discipline committee . While the class was going on my phone buzzed again and it was message from Haider again asking me how am I . Told him that discipline committee is all set and we both laughed.
