"C'mon V, don't joke about stuff like this. You know I'm a scardy cat na" exclaimed Anu They have been on call for just 5 minutes and V was already getting on her nerves. When V had texted her saying she had something important to share, Anu expected some news related to their exams or classes since colleges have been shut down for almost 6 months due to the pandemic but instead she was greeted with the news of a secret admirer. V had just informed her that her sources have revealed that there was a guy dumb enough to fall for her dear friend Anu. "Anyway his name is Sahil. Just wanted to let you know. I'm sure he's gonna text you soon, so what are you planning to do then??" The over excited voice of V awakened Anu from her stupor. "V, you know right I'm not interested in a relationship right now. Plus I don't even know him. He might be a psycho for all we know!" The worried voice of Anu echoed through the phone. After the unsettling yet interesting call, Anu couldn't sleep a wink. Suddenly her peaceful night was interrupted with a notification sound. *

the_scorpio_boy_ wants to send a message*

the_scorpio_boy_ :

Hey

Anu :

Who's this??

the_scorpio_boy_ :

It's Sahil.. I hope you've heard of me by now..

Anu :

Oh

the_scorpio_boy_ :

How are you?

Anu :

See Mr. Sahil, I'm sorry but I don't chat with strangers so please excuse me.

the_scorpio_boy_ :

But Ms.Anu, if you don't talk to strangers , how do you make friends?? Plus all friends were strangers at one point ryt😊.

Anu :

Listen here Mr.Smartypants, I know what your intentions are and I'm not going to fall for it😠

Unknowingly the guy has started intriguing her. the_scorpio_boy_ :

Ok Ms Firecracker, since it's late and I don't 'trap my preys' at night , I'll be bidding goodnight. See ya soon.

Even thought Anu didn't want to admit, Sahil did strike a cord in her yet as days passed she didn't entirely feel comfortable as he started mentioning how he secretly saw her everyday. The paranoia in her increased as his actions became bolder. the_scorpio_boy_ :

Hey Ms. Firecracker, why is your gate locked??

Anu :

That's none of your business mister. Also please stop with this stalkerish behavior otherwise..

the_scorpio_boy_ :

Otherwise what? You'll block me? Go ahead, do it, I dare you..

Anu :

What is wrong with you? You know what that's it. Please refrain from seeing or contacting me again.

*

You have blocked this user*

Even after blocking him, she didn't feel at peace. The feeling of guilt and fear ate her up. His thoughts plagued her even after months. Atlast after 3 months she unblocked him in the hope that he would've forgotten about her. But next day a new message from him greeted her. She eagerly opened it to realize with a start that he had turned her inbox into a notepad which consisted of random tasks and grocery lists.

10 years later

Anu:

1kg onion,2 kg carrots, 100mg chili powder

Hubs:

Anu yaar, what's with this again!!! You are once more turning my inbox into your pocket book

🤦🏻‍ Anu:

Oh hello!! Did tit forget who started it??? It was you if you forgot that already 😒.

Hubs:

Ahaa are you telling me that you fell for that grocery list and not this handsome, eloquent, persuasive, sweet, amazing and graceful personality of mine??

Anu:

Uff can you shut up and go work. Also don't forget to bring these while returning otherwise you won't get dinner.

Hubs:

Yes ma'am.

Who knew that the creepy stalker whom she met during corona lockdown would end up becoming her life partner. The year 2020 sure did change the lives of everyone and she was thankful that it turned out to be for good in her case. DEVIKA PANICKER.M 2nd DC BOTANY St. Teresa's College **********************
