Ram, Siddharth, Arun and Amal are all sitting in Pizza hut. It was Arun's treat.
"Exxxcuse me.." calls Amal at the waiter.
"Can you get me another bottle of sauce..this one is over"

Peals of laughter followed.

"dei..avangalam..sontha kaasula saapdrangada..inga billu katra Arun munjiya paarunga..athey pola than iruku"
"maganay intha mokkaikagavay un billa neeye kattu.."
After the customary "bye" "take care"s when they began to leave..Siddarth called out for Ram.
"Unkita konjam pesanum.."
Sid waited till everyone else had left...
"Saw your mail yesterday about that Uma. Again??? Are you nuts Ram??..ithenna cinema nenachitrukia? paakamaly love athu ithunu olaritrukka..what rubbish"
"Hey..relax Sid. Yen ivlo tension.."

"Quite possible. But that person has to be a damn good actor for maintaining such an act for.. close to an year now. Its not that i dint had my doubts. Infact ava kooda fonela first time pesinapo kooda doubt clear aagala. But athey fone chats became lengthier and at one point fonela charge theeruthaynu chargerla poatu arattai adikara alavuku vanthapo thaan i got convinced that it has to be a real person.

"Intha Alaipayuthay calculationskkelam naan varala..enamopa..nalla iruntha seri"
The last day at office was a pretty emotional day for Ram. Having spent a good part of his 10 year career at various branches of the same office, he was as familiar to the staff next only to the company logo. There were lot of group foto sessions sprinkled with emotional moments. After surrendering his card, he collected all his belongings and left that office for the final time. Since he had to relocate to chennai for his new job, he vacated his house also on the same day. He loaded all his stuff on Amal's car and headed off to chennai. Being a real chum, Amal came all the way to his house and even helped in unpacking. After he made Ram promise that he would soon look for a suitable position for him in the new office, Amal took leave of him.
First day at new office. Ram briskly walked into the lobby and flashes his best smile at the cute rerceptionist..
"Hi..my name is Ram..i am here to meet Vijay.."
"Please wait for sometime i will let him know" pat came the reply like some pre recorded message and she went on with her work as if the lobby was empty.
"Adakkivasi maams..first day..first impression..dont screw up..relax" Ram said to himself. He took a deep breath and sat relaxed on the chair. The very moment Priya came out of the lift right in front of him..she was looking stunning in her pink salwar that it simply took his breath away. "what are the odds dude..now u tell me.." He could hear Amal's voice mocking him on his mind. "Kann ethirla figure irukarachay kandavana pathi yosikariyeda fool" spat his own mind voice. Before he could even react, Priya left hurriedly outside...without even noticing him. He went near the receptionist to enquire about her. Without even opening her mouth, that lady gave one "can't-u-wait-till-i-call-you" stare which silenced him.
He called Amal.
"dei..serious escalation oditruku inga..etho pulla mudhal naal opice poitu fone panuthaynu edutha..avala pathen poria pathengara...anga enna ayutha boojaya nadakuthu"
"adai arivuketa Amal..naan sonathu Priyava..naan kadisia paaka ponene antha ponnu. Nee sonna mathiri thaanda aidchi. She is in the same office as mine"
"soooper...nee nadathu...seri..evening call panni sollu enna aachunu.."
