Everyone has been embarrassed at one time or another. It is that moment in time when you wish the earth would open up and swallow you. The anxiety and discomfort felt during that time which may only last a few seconds feels like time has stood still.It was recess time and we all were sitting and talking amongst ourselves about school, teachers and friends and movie. From the rear end of the class we heard a big noise, two of our classmates Rakshit and Rohan had got into fighting. The reason was the same girls. Argument had started over a girl called Tanvi who was a common friend of theirs and my cousin sister. Tanvi studies in a all-girls school in the tenth class. Rohan and Rakshit, Tanvi, and a number of other friends take maths tuition at the same centre.When I heard my sisters name being called out again and again by Rakshit I went to him and started yelling at him as to why was he fighting over my sister. Rakshit tried to explain to me but I would not hear and blasted at him that he was rude and mean. He was a nasty boy as he was talking ill about Tanvi, my sister. I reeled and reeled at him, without giving a break. When all efforts made by Rakshit to make me listen fell on deaf ears, he walked away in anger.After sometime I cooled down and stopped shouting. By now the whole class was in uproar some took my side and pointing a finger at Rakshit, while others trying to cool me on Rakshits behalf. My close friend Arpita was very upset with the entire scene. She thought I had over-reacted in the whole situation. No sooner she said this, I shouted at her and in anger gave her one tight push that she feel and hurt herself Rohan who was in the midst of all affairs and was silently watching came to me. He told me one by one the entire conversation that took place between him and Rakshit and to my horror I realized Rakshit was nowhere at fault. He was rather defending Tanvi and shouting at Rohan for speaking ill of Tanvi. I was very embarassed by my behaviour and fell guilty of my actions. I was at a loss of words to say sorry to Rakshit.I realized that suddenly there was a pin drop silence and as I looked up my friend Rakshit was standing in front of me. Tears welled up in my eyes and I said sorry. He hugged me tight saying no sorry, no thank you in friendship. Again bedlam broke out in class as everyone screamed and yelled in happiness as the differences cleaned up.
