Wasn’t it just yesterday when we used to fight with each other for really nothing?
When we used to fuss over the group projects, and who would do it entirely, while everyone of us would just take the credit?
When we used to fight for notes?
When we wanted to duck behind last benches and avoid eye contact with teachers?
When we used to make plans, and unending plans of hanging out at each other’s places.
When we used to tease each other by saying who’d get married first?
When we would go to extremes to just make an ‘April fool’ of somebody.
When, we’d just finish our tiffin boxes way before the recess?
When we’d smile cunningly when someone’s crush passed by?
When we’d go to the same coaching only to be together and just kill more time?
Wasn’t it just yesterday, when we’d roam about the whole day, and open our books the night before the exams, and yet manage to pass?
When we’d get together right 15 minutes before the exam bell, and yet manage to explain the entire syllabus to each other?
wasn’t it just yesterday, when we were kids (Okay, at least teens) and had no trouble what so ever.
Where and how did we grow up?
Going to a distant relatives wedding, or your elder sister’s wedding is way different than going to your own friend’s engagement party, the one friend whom you know since childhood, with whom you grew up. Where did the years go by?
I really can’t believe one of us is getting married, who knows who would be there next, on the stage, smiling and accepting wishes from others.
I must say, as much as I am happy for this dear friend, I am scared too.
