Raghav stands in front of Kalpana and leaves very less space for air to pass between them. He bends before her and she closes her eyes in a split of a second.
“What are you doing?” She grits without opening her eyes.
“Why? My presence affects you so much that you can’t bear it right? Hence you closed your eyes.” Raghav teases her and this makes Kalpana open her eyes and face him.
“No. Your perfume stinks and that’s why I can’t bear it.”
Raghav frowns and smells his jacket saying “Really? My perfume stinks? I guess your nose is blocked or may be you are used to those perfumes which have more gas than perfume. This brand is the best one in the market and one bottle costs over $1000 per ounce.”
“Oh really? I wonder why a person who uses a perfume that is so expensive runs after a car worth just $5000. It’s surprising know?” Kalpana says sarcastically and folds her hands.
Raghav does not think of any answer to this and stands dumbstruck before Kalpana. He stuffs his hands in his pockets and tries to act normal. He says “Yeah so what? I won the prize because of my dance moves and hence I deserve the prize. Anyways, if some poor people have already stolen the keys, I don’t want the second hand gift.”
“What the hell do you mean by poor? Just mind your words you…Even though I was a bit drunk, I too danced well and hence it was we both who won the prize and not you alone.” Kalpana snaps and points her finger at him. Before she completes, the flight announcement is made and the passengers are requested to proceed.
