the beginning of friendships in this small, small world

[INT. CARNATIC VIOLIN CLASS- DAY. The violin teacher’s voice can be heard in the background at random intervals (she’s talking on the phone) GIRL1 and GIRL2 are seated opposite each other.]

GIRL1: Which class are you in?

[PAUSE]

GIRL2: Seventh.

[PAUSE]
[GIRL2 fiddles with her violin and smiles shyly (though it looks more like a grimace)]

GIRL2: Which school are you in?
GIRL1: Caliber Academy. You?
GIRL2: PSBB.

[PAUSE]

GIRL2: Do you know D?
GIRL1: Yeah, she’s in my class. Oh wait, you guys are in the same flat, right? She’s told me about you.
GIRL2: Yeah! She has a twin brother, right?
GIRL1: Right!

[The conversation grows slowly and steadily till- FADE OUT]

– The beginning of friendships in this small, small world.

(I actually did witness this quasi-yet-not-all-that-quasi conversation. It made me smile. I miss seventh grade!)
