Before I start I would like to tell you what DÉJÀ
VU means. DÉJÀ VU means when a person experiences the
same situation over and over again. Now that person is I.
One day my school friends, Mridul (named Mrids by us) and Urmi (named
Cat like Eyes by us) had a fight. What a fight it was. Mridul told me
that if I talk to Urmi again she’d never talk to me whereas Urmi
said nothing. I went to console Urmi and together we went for a walk.
Suddenly I remembered I had to buy 2 chocs for me and Mridul. I went
into the canteen. Meanwhile, Mridul wondered where I was and said to
herself-- Soven has been away a long time. I hope she had not had an
accident and muttering this under her breath she went to look for me
in the canteen. She found me with Urmi and said- Well! Now I know what’s
taking you so long, Ms Casanova. Uh! I can explain, said I but said
In the class, our teacher said that she was going out for an hour and
that I mind the class with Mridul. This we did. Suddenly a teacher called
Mridul for some work. The class became restless, so I asked Urmi to
help me. When Mridul came back she was FURIOUS. She refused to talk
to me all day but finally made it up when it was time to go. I had to
buy something and told Mridul to wait for me. As I was going to buy
it, Urmi arrived on the scene and started to say that Mridul’s
jealous and this and that.
Mridul came there and saw me and brandishing a fist she ran after me.
DÉJÀ VU. Sounds like the story of my life.
