He was dreaming. Like most dreams it seemed to be random. He was standing in front of the bathroom mirror brushing his teeth. Suddenly the bathroom door flung open and as if by magic one of the models from the Tree Top advertisement appeared alongside him.
Tree Top was a fruit drink brand manufactured by one of the leading consumer companies worldwide and it had been launched in India recently. Their advertisement had started appearing on Doordarshan a few weeks ago and somehow one of the models in it had caught Chiku’s attention.
She would probably be only a year or two older than him and he found her to be extremely pretty. He especially loved her sweet smile. The more he got to watch the ad the more he became her fan. Though she appeared only for a few seconds in the ad, it was enough to give a lot of happiness to Chiku!
Now as she stood next to him and lifted her hand to brush her teeth, he noticed what she was wearing. It was a baby pink night suit and comprised of a top and a pair of pyjamas. It seemed to be made of satin as the fabric appeared smooth and shining and rustled softly against her skin. Her hands moved in a brisk to and fro motion and she seemed oblivious to his presence.
However, this time it was not her face and smile which drew Chiku’s attention, but it was a gap in her partially unbuttoned shirt which did. Much to his surprise he could see that the top part of her breasts was visible as they swelled and curved downwards. Her skin was the colour of honeyed milk and the exposed side seemed to be a part of something more astonishingly beautiful.
Something unseen and unknown.
Chiku stood transfixed at this sight. His hand seemed to stretch out; eager to touch and feel the softness of her breast.
Just at this moment, Chiku woke up with a start and his heart was hammering wildly. He realized it was just about breaking dawn. He had a stiff erection in his pyjamas as he got up and rushed into the bathroom. At that early hour the household was asleep. He sat in the Indian style toilet and that saw his erect penis was already oozing out a light coloured fluid.
It was something he had never seen before. It shocked and surprised him at the same instant. There was an odd sensation about the entire experience. He sat there for a few more moments, his mind in a whirlpool and finally washing his organ, he flushed away the sticky matter and got up.
He once again cross checked the toilet to make sure no signs were present of his ‘deed’.
He went back to bed but sleep eluded him.
Aamir, his father had been transferred in his job from Cuttack to Bhubaneswar a few years ago and had enrolled his son in a leading school in the city. Chiku had almost completed a decade in the same school and loved it immensely. He was now studying in Grade VIII.
Off late, he had begun to become aware of his adolescent body and the hitherto unexplored areas of the changes that were occurring in him. He had come across a brief section in his Biology textbook which made a list of various systems which function in our bodies. One of them was the Reproductive System and its organs- both male & female- with a note that it would be taken up in detail only the following year.
That disappointed him. He would have liked to read those chapters this year itself and gained some idea of a topic that had piqued his interest.
He wanted to know more about what happened with him that morning and what he had seen – both in the toilet and in his dreams. But he was at a loss on how to find out the details. Asking his parents was out of question. He felt nervous around his father and too embarrassed in front of his mother.
He sat brooding and lost in thought. It had been a new feeling altogether. What was it about the girl that had aroused him in this manner?
Suddenly he realised where exactly he could go and get more information on the same.
Hello Dear Reader, Welcome back to Chapter 2 of Chiku's adventures! The story jumps 13-14 years ahead in time; so Chiku is now a teenager. As mentioned at end of previous chapter that this story will try to capture the essence of those teenage years when we all had some memorable experiences. The illustration in this chapter by Kishor took some discussion and time. The idea was to capture the innocence of a teenage boy's dream when he becomes aware of a girl's body and tries to visualise it, but without being vulgar. Hope the effort shows in the result. Look forward as always to your thoughts and comments below!
