Sonali rushed to her bedroom with her laptop as she reached her home. She was already late from college and she wanted to talk to some one to whom she was a mystery. Sonali was fondly known as Sonu by all her friends and her family. Almost everyone called her Sonu. She untied her braids as she sat on her bed.She logged into messenger which is the first thing which she would do after entering home.As usual Mrs.Rathod would helplessly watch her 19 year old daughter with a pout face. Sonali was everything to Mrs Rathod. A girl born in a middle class family in Gujurat would often be considered as a blessed child. She was no different than others.
"Sonu, jami le (Sonu,eat your food)," Mrs Rathod said to her daughter as she arranged the books on the table.
"ma, thodi waar ma aavu chhu(Ma,I will come in a while)," Sonu said to her mother as she checked her mails without nictating her eyes.
" hey bhagwan, aa computer upar akho divas shu kare chhe(God knows what she does on the computer) " Mrs Rathod murmured as she was unhappy with her daughters activities.
"Hey there," A window popped up on her computer.
A smile appeared upon her face as she saw the chat window.

"Hahaha, bewakoof I knew this man..Its virtual world baby," Ansh taunted
"Man,I can't believe Sonu is a guy," Rahul said to his best friend.
"It happens dude,don't give a damn to virtual friendship man," Ansh smiled.

"You bloody *&*& why the f@ck you did this to me.I am not a gay like you dude.Leave me alone and I blocked you.don't bother me you bloody asshole," Rahul was vexed as he clicked the 'send mail' button.
Meanwhile Sonali was trying to contact Rahul.She wrote a mail to him explaining that she was actually playing a prank on him.She attached her original photo as an attachment.
"Dear Rahul, you know what I just have a feeling that I started liking you.I like you rahul.Please talk to me.I am not a man and I have send you my picture with this email.Please talk to me.Love Sonali,"Sonali wrote the mail.

"Enough,I just realized how bad you are!," Sonali replied to Rahul's email.
Rahul was sad and his face would clearly exhibit it.
"Beep,you have an email," the messaging system said.
"Oh it seems that asshole replied," Rahul said to his friend.
Rahul read the mail and was shocked when he saw the picture. He cursed himself. He looked at Sonali's picture for a while and was unhappy with his behaviour and gestures.
"Man,look at Sonu,"Rahul said to his friend Anshul.
"Oh my god!," Ansh replied without blinking his eyes.
