Being an extrovert girl, she loves to stay with her flaws. She loves herself more than anyone else. As she wants love, she likes to get pampered by everyone. Being an extrovert, she loves to spread love too and is very happy doing it. This may be because in her heart, she is scared of losing her loved ones or maybe she has been missing being loved.
She meets a guy in college who has a great personality and an attitude to boost. Unfortunately, he pays more importance to money than love. He seems rough and tough. The girl likes his personality and he likes the spark in the girl. They bond very well and their initial friendship graduates into something else. But the problem is, neither the girl nor the boy could express their likings or emotions for each other. It is so unlike the extrovert girl.
One day, a common friend creates a scene. This leads to a misunderstanding between the girl and the boy. The boy decides to stop meeting, even talking to the girl. He ignores her overture and often behaves rudely. The girl doesn’t utter a word and tolerates every single thing.
The college days end eventually. The boy leaves for JNU for further studies and the girl stays back in Kolkata. They don’t even meet to say goodbye.
In little more than 10 days of his leaving, the boy realises his mistake. How much ever he tries though, he is unable to express his guilt by saying sorry. He doesn’t know that the girl waits for him and not for his sorry. She is waiting for a plain and simple ‘Hi’.
She tries to divert herself and becomes very busy with her life. One fine morning the boy comes down and says, ‘Hey, let’s go for a walk’.
