Shoved Together— my entry to the Get Published contest

The Idea Description:
  They both have tried to find a respective other with no luck.
  He is tongue-tied around the opposite sex and she speaks too much— effectively shooing them away.
  So when their friends decide that they will be the perfect couple, what do these two have to say?
What Makes This Story ‘Real’:
  Sometimes its only peer pressure that makes you want to pursue a relationship. But what if you just can’t find a girlfriend or boyfriend for yourself?
  The question here is—Do you have someone significant in your life that you want or do you just want a girlfriend or a boyfriend? Or maybe its both.
  What is it for Preeti and Kartik?
Extract from the story:

He takes a deep breath gathering all the courage he can and sits to type this message—
Have you seen Life of Pi?
If you haven’t then will you like to see it with me?

  He hits send before he can over-think and talk himself out of it. After sending it, he reads it and groans on how absolutely ridiculous he sounds.
  But, he needn’t have worried because her reply is instantaneous.

This is my entry for the HarperCollins–IndiBlogger Get Published contest, which is run with inputs fromYashodhara Lal and HarperCollins India.
