Premium Peril

[Random Excerpts from my novel...work under progress.....[6 pages so far]..it shall be on a bookstore near you by your grandson's 18th b'day :P]


Trrringg Triiinggggg....the cacophony engulfed the room.
He took his hand out from the blanket....searching for the damned phone !!

"Hello........" he somehow managed to take the words out from his sleep craving being

"We are dead !!!"

"Johnnnnyyyyyy........Saturday morning 10 AM...are you out of ur mind???.......this is like middle of night ....I'm soo gonna kick ur ass man"

"Broadband bill......it has come"

Long Pause. Both were scared. Petrified actually.Both of them just got new broadband connections.First in college to do so.Both thought they had the night 2 to 8 free plan. Sadly that wasn't the case.

In their ignorance they found the bliss of unlimited download.All new movies,Counter Strike Latest Edition,Tory Lane Mega Pack.....they were the stars of campus overnight.

"Fukkk......how much???"

"17900 !!"

"Death....."

"Go run find ur postman.....it shouldn't get delivered  home at least "

He sprang up from his bed before the sentence was complete,Phone left hanging.
10:15 AM....that guy must be around somewhere........He was running on road in his bathroom slippers like a pig. Somehow managed to procure the bill safely.

He looked at his bill....15900 !!

Both sat on the fountain near campus....their usual spot. Rum in hand.......with their long faces.

"Mabbe we won't tell anyone"

"Yeah, Its one of those things "

Both looked at each other....and burst out laughing. This is how every problem was received in this group.

Nobody knows how these two managed to pay off the bill. Rumors say their families were disturbed about sudden rise in engineering college fees. But no one knows for sure.

Then one day a letter comes.It was from the telecom company. "We cordially invite our premium customers to join us for the dinner in the city palace". Both called each other again.The familiar roar of laughter followed.
