Short story- The Broken Bicycle

“Again???!!!” She exclaimed.

My hands which were inspecting the back wheel of my bicycle stopped and I turned towards her.

‘Naina,’ my classmate was standing right there in school uniform, with two neatly braided ponies adorned with a red ribbon, wearing ‘star-shaped studs‘ in her ears and also she has kohl laden beautiful pair of black eyes’ and a mesmerizing voice when she speaks, like she is speaking something to me presently, “wait a minute!!! focus Ritesh focus!!! she is saying something, just listen you idiot”

“Hello, where are you lost”, she snapped her fingers in front of me.

“Nothing, just thinking about my cycle’s punctured tire” I replied.

“I know right, every other day there is something wrong with your cycle, yesterday there was some chain issues, and a day before that, the issue was with the seat, and today punctured tires” she chuckled

“Yeah, what can I say, I think it is getting old now” I replied

“Hmmm ask your dad to buy a new one then, and for now let’s walk to the school together, it’s getting late now,” she said while adjusting her wristwatch.

I just nodded and we start walking towards school.

“Don’t you think it has become an everyday routine now, every day your cycle gets wrecked and then we go to school together, it’s like a destiny thing, don’t you think so?” She looked at me with her big beautiful eyes.

“Haha, how on the earth do you even think about such things!!!??” I chuckled nervously while trying to hide the ‘iron nail’ from her, which I just used on my poor bicycle’s tire.

        I guess you misunderstood this one badly honey πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰
        The boy wrecked his own bicycle, not her’s
        Do give it a read again πŸ’ŸπŸ’ŸπŸ’ŸπŸ’ŸπŸ’Ÿ

  1. Uhhh this is so pretty!
    How are you Vani di? I want a help from you! Could you please review my blog a bit? You see I have been so lost these days! And I know that no one better than U can guide me! And please criticise me a bit also!
    Thank you β™₯️

    1. Ohhh Riya, I am glad that you think I can help you ❀❀❀
      To be honest I also have no idea how the blogs work!!!! So I am gonna mention things as a reader of your posts not as a professional because I am notπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜
      First thing first- Content- your content is so good, the things you express in few lines are very hard for some people to express even in 7-8 paragraphs ….. so kudos to you…..also when you put “a thoughts of 13 years old” in the mid of paragraphs, it looks great, kind of your signature style……
      You give proper spacing between paragraphs, do not get deviated from the topic and also you choose great topics and pictures to go along with it !!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ one thing you should start posting a little often (well I should not be the one to say that to you considering I also don’t post on time) but I am just saying, if you can’t post a new one , reschedule the old ones πŸ˜‰ also you don’t have to post every day (you should if you can) but try to post something new twice in a week……

      Communication- super important factor and you do this very well, communicate with other bloggers, comment on their post, tell them what you liked in their posts etc but I guess you are already good at this, never mass like any body’s post , if you wanna do it , then sincerely read every post you liked and comment about them.

      Site theme- I guess your site needs a new theme, the current one is looking a little plain, play with some themes and see which one suits you……

      I can only think of these now, I guess you should ask this from Anushka too , she is a great advisor too ❀❀❀

      1. Thank you so much Vani Di!!!! I really really liked all the tips and definitely I will follow them! Thank you once again β™₯️
        See Anushka and I are school mates! And we don’t really talk to each other and we don’t like each other! I can give the reasons for it but we don’t really talk! β™₯️

  2. Beautiful!
    I blushed so badly after reading the last line πŸ˜…β˜ΊοΈ
    I get the feel of everything around me after reading your blogs…..
    This one really touched my heart πŸ˜…β£οΈ

    1. Awww πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯° the innocent school crush phase is enough to make anyone blush ☺ 😳 😊
      Thank you so much for this lovely comment ❀❀❀

    1. Haha πŸ˜„ as you only said that we all had that school crush momentsπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰
      But no one has gone this far for meπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      Thank you so much for reading ❀❀❀

  3. What a lovely story!!!! You’re such a talented writer. I throughly enjoy reading your work, keep shining πŸ’«πŸ€—πŸ–€

  4. I can’t decide whether the speaker in the story is a little creepy or cute 🀣 Either way, this was a very funny/cute story for me. You know what they say:: “The best way to a girl’s heart is through your broken bicycle.”
