When the eunuch chased us !!!!



     (Image Courtesy : Google search. I am thinking this would our face looked like while running for life :P )

This was one of the wacky and horrifying experience of childhood.
During school me and a friend of mine had a ritual, after the last day of the exam we used to treat ourselves and used to hang out before going home for the big break of two months. And we did this every year.
We were in fifth or sixth grade we finished our exams and ran towards the bus to get window seats. Sitting there we used to tease the losers who would follow us (those who didn't get the window seats), we felt like kings going home after a war. A war which we knew we have won. As the bus starts we played hand cricket (sounds kind of lame now, yet I admit I sometimes still play it). Ours was the last stop which gave us about forty-five minutes that was more than enough to complete a three to five match series.
We got down loitered for some time and were on our way to home. We grabbed a couple of cold samosas and a bottle of coke and relished them by the road laughing loud at stupid jokes and playing a game of farts ( who farts the most, yes it’s kind of sick now were eleven stop judging us :P ). A few of parents were accompanying their kindergarten children somewhere and they were looking at us with disgust and we gladly returned it.
The samosas were done and so was the coke now it was time for Popsicle/pepsi cola. We always bought this popsicle whenever either of us had some changes in the pockets. But today was the last day we wanted to go full scale so we needed ten five for each and we had just 5 bucks in over pockets, which will suffice to buy only 5 so a bit sad we went to get it. I handed the money to the shopkeeper and asked us to get it. He knew us quite well and asked me to take it from the fridge.
I didn't waste any time I knew this is the opportunity steal another five. I asked my friend to stand behind the freezer so I could “accidentally spill” a few to him. I opened it and dived in for the coldest one and our luck I got the best flavors (the one with milk in them) I didn't waste any time and passed it on to my friend. Who hid it inside his bag and moved away the looked at us I said I am not getting the flavor I want so he came and gave us the orange one. We took it and left the shop. We were so damn happy not because we stole 5 of the best but we conned the man. We sat by a building and had them.
After all the eating it was time for one last ritual go behind the building and just open the air valve of a couple of cycles. We went in by jumping a small wall into the parking space of the building selected a couple of cycles and took turns in opening the valve while the other stood on guard.
The last of the ritual was done it was time bid farewell and go home we will only meet after a gap of two months. We did our secret hand shake one of us I guess me missed one of the steps of the handshake. My buddy was pissed and just was about to leave he threw a pebble on me, it hit me hard. I retaliated with a bigger one and I missed, I threw again and again he dodged it. I took a bigger one and was about to throw it and he said “see a couple of eunuch standing behind you” (he used some slang for the word eunuch) and unfortunately they herd him and they headed towards us.
We didn't waste a micro second we ran towards his home (it was nearer than mine) and they too broke into a run. The distance was about two hundred meters which can reach easily under normal circumstances but we were on the clock now. At some point I outran him and that little shit dragged me back (till today he says he never did such an act) so were level again. The road was deserted as it was 2 in the noon and most of the people were either at their office or enjoying siesta. Somehow we managed to get inside his building now we have to run till the fourth floor. Those eunuch were right behind us. On the way up both of us banged a few doors so that some people would least see us and help us but we kept running not waiting to see if the doors were opened or not. I did open so the eunuch speed was considerably slowed almost at halt as many doors popped opened. We were victorious and we reached his home. And I called my mom and she reached then we recounted the tale to both of them skipping many parts. Both of us were still shaking that luckily helped us from not getting grounded. I was feeling safe with my mother and then left to my place.

Even after this incident we continued all our tradition till the last exam of our school life.

PS:
