“Spicy” Love Story

This morning – I suddenly remembered a rather spicy love story I had written long back.

So – let me delve into my creative writing archives and pull out this spicy love story I wrote 6 few years ago – in early 2010…

LOVE BITE” : Short Fiction – A Very Short Story By VIKRAM KARVE

I am having a Quick Bite at Quick Bite…!

Hey – I am not trying to be funny.

“Quick Bite” is the fast food joint opposite our office complex where we often rush out to have a ‘Quick Bite’.

I sit at a table for two – concluding my quick bite with a cup of coffee – when I see the office “macho-man” Raj enter Quick Bite for a quick bite.

His eyes search for a vacant table – but “Quick Bite” is jam-packed.

Raj looks in my direction.

I beckon him to sit on the vacant chair opposite me.

As Raj settles down in his chair – I ask him: “All alone…? Where is your girlfriend…?”

“Girlfriend…?” he asks.

“Rita…” I say.

“Rita is no longer my girlfriend…” Raj says.

“Really?” I interrupt, “That’s great. It is good you dumped Rita. She is a shameless nympho.”

“Rita…? Shameless nympho…? You are calling Rita a shameless nympho…? What are you saying…?” Raj asks.

“Musical Beds – Ha Ha – Musical Beds…!” I say, laughing.

“Musical Beds…?” Raj asks.

“Ha Ha – ‘Musical Beds’ – that’s what we called Rita in college  – that shameless nympho Rita – we called her ‘Musical Beds’ – yes – Rita’s nickname was  ‘Musical Beds’ – just like we play Musical Chairs – Rita plays Musical Beds – but let me tell you Raj – you are lucky to have got out – better late than never – you have done the right thing – you had a ball with Rita – and now – you have dumped her – yes – Raj –you have done the wisest thing by dumping that shameless nympho Rita…” I say.

Then – I hurriedly gulp down the remains of my coffee.

Raj looks at me with a perplexed expression on his face.

But I am in a hurry – and – I have got a lot of work to do.

So I quickly get up – smile at Raj – pat his shoulder – and rush back towards my office.

Suddenly – I see Rita talking to my colleague Chanchal near the entrance of the office.

Chanchal waves out – and she calls out to me.

So – I go towards Rita and Chanchal.

“Hey – you know what…?” my chatterbox colleague Chanchal says excitedly the moment I come near them.

“What…?” I ask.

“Rita and Raj got married yesterday. It was a very sudden secret hush-hush affair – parents’ opposition – you know. That’s why they did not tell anybody…” Chanchal says.

“Really…? You got married to Raj…?” I ask, surprised.

Rita looks at me and she says: “Yes – I got married to Raj yesterday. So – I am not your friend Raj’s girlfriend anymore. Yes – I am no longer his girlfriend – now  I am his wife.”

With these words – Rita turns around with a flourish – and she walks towards “Quick Bite” for a ‘Quick Bite’ with Raj.
