Tides of Time – Part 2

“Anu… Anu… We need to go get our instruments ready our contest starts in 5 minutes! Oh c’mon move your butt silly girl!”

“What? Oh yea that was awesome!”

“Anu, hope you din’t lose your mind cos we are moving on stage in 5 minutes and we all rely on you to win this time!”

“Chill Kiks! We are winning this time!”

The girls called their band AUREOLE and never missed a chance to do justice to their band’s name because every time they finish performing the audience galore will be filled with a charismatic aura. They have never lost any contest so far, for the variety and innovation they bring out. This time the band has planned to tune down the instruments further and give a soulful performance with Anu’s melancholic vocals. The stage was set, the two guitarists Kiks and Stacy fine tuned their guitar for one last time, and their time started ticking.

Kiks started her strums and increased the intensity slowly… Anu closed her eyes and filled the arena with her heavenly phonations. The whole six minutes passed like a dream for many including the judges, and when they finished their piece, every one in the audience clapped and nodded in agreement to give away the prize right away but there were more teams to perform and AUREOLE has to wait.

“Anu that was awesome man! You did it… I just love you!”

“Not without you Kiks!”

“So let’s go find him now”

“Him? Who?”

“Ahh.. c’mon Anu, you think I did not notice your obvious admiration of that “Play Guy”? c’mon lets go find him.”

“Hey…hey… I was not admiring anyone particularly! I was just moved by the emotional performance of the actors in the play. Let’s move to the cafeteria my stomach is making all weird noises. I am glad that it was not loud enough to reach the mike”

Kiks gave a big smile and nodded her head disapprovingly. They both took a stroll towards the cafeteria, gazing at the remodeled college architecture and beautiful fountains that added beauty to the architecture. They reached the college cafeteria and filled their grumbling stomach with food of all strange names à la carte.

“Hey its time for the results, hurry up… let’s move”

“Anu, I am not done eating yet!”

“Hah… is that very important now Kiku? You have stuffed your stomach enough for 4 days. Now c’mon move it.”

“Alright… alright…” Kiks replied with an insignificant burp.

“Ewww Kiks don’t embarrass yourself here!”

They both ran as fast as they can and reached the huge arena. The Acoustics results were announced and AUREOLE doubtlessly came first! The AUREOLE girls from Alabama University jumped and rolled with joy but collected their trophies with elegance and dignity. The results were announced and the whole event came to an end.

Students were seen in groups, some were hurrying out of the college, some were taking strolls as couples, and some gathered together as groups to celebrate. Kiks and Anu decided to wait for their group of girls who were celebrating their victory.

“Kiks, do you have any idea who won the stage play?”

“Well… why do you even mind? Plays are boring for you right?!?!”

“I was wrong Kiks! Plays are very original, soulful, and very moving!” Anu blurted it out with a coy smile, exposing her lingering heart.

Kiks laughed so hard that she stopped only after a stomach cramp. Anu did not heed anything but was simply gazing at the empty water fountain in front of her when all of a sudden a familiar voice kicked her heart out.

“Hey there! You did really well!”

“What? Ummm… uggg… well... really? Thank you!” Anu chocked and managed to get a few words out of her throat

It was the same man who froze her time and plunged her in to the never before interesting genre of stage play. The same man whom she reckoned only as a dream. The same man whom she thought that she should never meet.
