It was one of the hottest day in 2018, my bestie was absent nd other two went to market. I had something to enquire from the professor so I stayed. I was waiting for his class to get over in a empty room on the first floor, listening to my favourite playlist, when my bestie called asking me about the classes an all and then we shifted to the topic of my crush,
"he was there till 2nd class and then he disappeared , I didn't see him but his bike was still there, damn 406" (that's his college roll no)
when I saw him walking past the window, I cut the call after sometime and again was gazing at the sky and out of nowhere it started drizzling and slowly it got darker, the dark clouds covered the scorching sun. My music was on full volume with "barso re" on loop , I sat on the bench , and the cold breeze with the smell of dry soil getting wet
.."ohh this beautiful smell"..
I played the song "mitti di khusboo by Ayushmann Khurana" and put my head down on the desk, and I was humming along.
When I heard a knock on my desk , it was him, 406.
"Can I call my friend from your phone, my battery just died , he took my bike so."
I unlocked my phone and gave it to him. After talking when he gave me my phone back ..he held my hand ..my heart was already in my mouth and he said
" I know that you like me, and ...."
My phone rang, I woke up and it was my Bestiee again, also the classes got over like ten minutes ago. I checked my phone and there was an unknown number, dialed half an hour ago.
Well it was the most beautiful and sweetest smell of petrichor for me.
