Chap 1 :
Notification : Shift from 7.00 am - 4.00pm.(mobile screen)
Me and Sarah had the same timings so both of us hurried and reached the office on time. My experiment still failed again so I decided to be more practical. I took out the master plates( in which microorganisms grows) and I looked at the colonies and I asked 'My dear what is your problem ?huh.. Nyan nanavan samadhikylla ? ninnaokke extra beef, glucose, vitamins, minerals thannadum pora dushtatharam cheyuno? Chummadhala ee fieldill aarum varathe... (you won't allow me to be a good person? I provide you with extra beef, glucose vitamins minerals and inturn what you guys do.. Play fool with me?that is why no one wants to work in this field)
Mentor : (In shock) what happened to you?
Me : ayeee chey (embarrassed) nothing sir
Mentor : I'm your mentor Nancy I have the rights to screw you. It's for your own good!!
Me :( iyallke vatayao - has he gone mad) sir I completely understand (fully confused)
Mentor : Sarah come hear, take Nancy to a restaurant or which ever place she is comfortable.
Me : (In my mind - wowww...satyam? - is it true , I was excited but then my inner voice spoke : no Nancy no, don't show that expression, act like an adult
So I replied : Sir, I'm really fine...( good girl)
Mentor : that's what normal people do? Talking to petriplates? This is psychosis you need to go to a doctor.
Me : eeyal aare Dr. Sunnyo (a character from the famous movie called manichitrathaz) oru psychosis Konde vannekuva (who is this guy bringing about psychosis and all)
Sar : okay sir I'll take her home, she needs a good tight sleep
Me : Sarahammo... Nee Punnyalan annedi (you're a saint)
Mentor : Ohok that sounds good
Me :( In my mind: Oru Ph. D konde oru upakaram ellalo Karthave -ohh God there is no use having a Ph. D )
Sar : Ok Nancy let's go
Me : Wokay!!! Again I jumped with happiness and that's when the thunder of enlightenment striked once again
Inner voice : yedi mandi angane jaadale... Ninake aasuvanne, mentor kandipidikyum- ohh fool don't jump that way, you need to act like a sick person)
Mentor : ( just confused expression)
Me : ( placed my hand on the forehead and acted as if I have severe headache....
Bad acting can't help ....
Mentor : mmmm you can go
Me : okay sir (sad and depressed tone)
Sar : seriously? Your rubbish....
Me : Yendho yengane?? ( when you hear a malayalee using the exact phrase then dont worry it means they don't consider your comments and not just comments it includes you, signifying that you can beat their level).
Me : I took my plates , thanked them and understood one thing that day, even microbes have feelings too. Next time I'll pakka add more nutrients I won't be stingy, I promise.
Sar : Satyati vatayo? ( have you really gone mad)
Me : Kushumbe pidichatte oru karayam ella molle (no point of being jealous dear)
Sar: okay okay I'll go get my keys, you be near the parking area
Me : okay
While Sarah was driving her scooter and speaking about how her boyfriend is a good soul n blah blah.. As always I nodded and never tried to listen to her stories and that's when I saw that book which was so familiar, that cover of the book gave me broken memories and the same person was reading it. He was inside a bus sitting next to the window seat and boom..
Nothing happened....the vehicles stooped due to signal and the man closed his book.
To be continued....
