One of my friends has invited me and my girlfriend to his birthday party at a club. He is the second one from the circle to get a lavish party from his girlfriend as she is rich. And this has made me even happier; after all, I was getting to spend my evening with my beautiful girlfriend.
So we reached the venue on time when the crowd was just about to sing birthday song. I was in a Black Tuxedo Suit coupled with white mandarin collar shirt having black buttons and a white stair cased pocket square. No tie. And my girlfriend is wearing a Red Dress.
We met our friend and pass him a birthday gift. Raymond Weil Watch set. Get photos clicked. Exchange hugs and then come down the stage to meet other friends from the circle. Everything seemed just right.
But only then a feud gets started at the entrance. A girl was mistreated by some local goons while she was entering the venue with her geeky boyfriend. Her previous boyfriend dumped her so she had no option than to bring a engineering geek as her boyfriend to enter club for free. To solve the matter the two security people at the entrance got in between. But the badass guys thrashed them to pass the message. Thereafter those intimidators entered the venue with hockey sticks and a pervert smile on the face. They were 8 in number. Certainly, they didn’t watch movies at all which was evident from their fashion sense. Almost every other guy wore black jacket and black bandana that had skull on it, which looked almost the same. May be, they purchased it from shopclues.com around a few days, who knows?! Whereas, other were too lazy to put on the badass look. Thus they were in with an oversized t-shirt and blue jeans. Anyway, they soon got into the job of intimidating people by cracking things up with their hockey sticks. Some even teased ladies while others looted the money from my friends. And do the worst; they had blocked the entrance and exit completely to being in isolation. Superb! They had experience of doing such things.
When a few people tried to fight back, they were beaten till they dropped that silly idea. And that created chaos and fright everywhere to a higher level. A few people called the police too, but that would have taken time for sure. And looking at the situation, somebody had to do something immediately. So, only when I took a step forward to intervene, my girlfriend grabbed my arms tightly and looked straight into my eyes as if wanting me to stay in silence.
Meanwhile, my friend and her rich girlfriend came to us. They were baffled, confused and terrified all the same time. Only to break the horrific silence, my friend asked me, what we should do now. To Which I turned my head towards him and looked deep into his fiery eyes, putting a hand on his shoulder for composure and said, “I will handle this. Just take care of them, pointing towards both the ladies.”
Then I started walking towards two guys, who had hockey sticks and were thrashing the set up with it, while unbuttoning my blazer buttons. I Tapped on a guy’s shoulder, he turned and bam. I punched him right on the nose. He dropped his hockey stick and ran holding his bloody broken nose. This turned other guy’s attention towards me. They started to come towards me. Meanwhile I kicked the second guy, who had hockey stick too, on his sensitive area and punched his jaw. He fell down twisting to his left in a jiffy. One guy tried to knock me off from behind, but I dodged him only to break his rib bones with my knee by twisting, lifting and aiming it at the right spot. Then remaining 5 guys surrounded me. They had tongs, spatula, corkscrew, cheese and butter knife. Wonderful, they assumed me to be Sanjeev Kapoor and the place to the set of MasterchefIndia.
I looked at all of them one by one in the eye and said, ‘this is your last chance to run; choose wisely’. They smirked and came all together. I grabbed the hockey stick that the first guy whom I punched, dropped and swayed it aerially just likes the straight drive shot in a cricket match. That got a guy off the list. Now, 4 more were left. All of them came together with their stuffs. I side-kicked one of them and banged another one with a turning kick. The kicks intimidated the other two guys so much that they stopped midway from their attack and looked at each other with disdain. And they tried to flee the situation only to get caught by the police at the entrance. The police arrived right on time just like a movie scene.
I dusted my blazer, buttoned it again and went to my girlfriend. She was baffled yet happier after whatever just happened and couldn’t resist hugging me. I patted her back, like we do to a child, to soothe her. Everybody else had a similar look of happiness and disbelief. After all, they don’t see such thing happening apart from movies. But gradually, peace and tranquility was restored as the police and other staff took charge of the situation. Now my friend’s girlfriend was amazed by action packed performance from a chocolaty boy who has been an epitome of serenity till date. She came running towards me hugged me tightly and was about to give me kiss on my lips my dad shrugs my shoulder and woke me up from my sleep. I woke up that morning really scared and then realize that all that action scene was just a dream and I was late for my college.
