Of Ice and Men. #BarAThon 2017

“Mmm…just look at that guy, Riya! Isn’t he terribly good-looking? Sania sighed as she gestured towards the man sitting at the table across. “In fact, he looks positively yummy!” she purred.

“Shush! Sania! Are you nuts? He can hear you! And, he doesn’t appear to be the friendly sort, at all. He is not “positively yummy”, but positively icy! Look for someone else, and leave the Ice Man alone! Riya admonished her childhood friend as she threw a glance at the man, furtively. 

“Naah! I prefer Ice Men, Ri. Cold, distant with an icy look in their eyes that could freeze a waterfall! The challenge lies in melting the Ice Man’s heart, teaching him what love is all about!” Sania continued,  eyeing her object of admiration.

 “Yikes! Sani, how much more gross could you get!? “Melting his heart and teaching him about love?” Just cut the crap, will you, and concentrate on your book, for heaven’s sake! We have a test in half an hour, now. And, they are not going to question us on ways and means of cutting through the icy exterior of Adonis’ heart. Gawd!” groaned Riya on hearing the idiotic words her friend mouthed.

“You read the book, Genius, and let me concentrate on my Ice Man, here.  All you think about is books and studies. Did you even notice I winked at him just now? There was a  flicker of a smile on his lips, ya know? It really isn’t that difficult to thaw an iceberg, babe.  Ask this expert!” Sania uttered with pride as she stood up to make a daring move.

Today’s prompt for BarAThon: ‘Of Ice and Men’, and the corresponding sin Pride. 

The above conversation is just something I came up with while wondering what I could write for today’s prompt. I am sure this is also the conversation that goes on among the youngsters of today, who know how to get what they want! Makes me happy that I belonged to the older generation, though..😏

  1. I am happy to be a part of the old generation now. We knew studies were far more important than walking upto our object of desire.. Like Sanch said women (I would read this as people) are mistaken when they think they can change the other person in whatever way. Who would like to change when it is not as per their will? Try to change me and I will run away.

  2. What a fun story, Shilpa! That Rania is a bold one thinking she can thaw out Mr. Iceman. She sounds so determined that she just might. Is there a sequel? I'm eager to know what happened next!

  3. Oh god!!! I could never dare to approach a man so coldly – I need wooing and the flirting to get in the groove! I think I am just old school and love the “mating” game as it was back then. This cut and dried approach leaves me cold!! But good take on the prompt Shilpa!
