Babyji by Abha Dawesar

Babyji

Abha Dawesar

This is a coming of age novel. Babyji has just discovered sex and can think of nothing else...apart from the odd equation from quantum physics which pops into her head now and then. Light-hearted, fun and very sexy, but plausible?...you'd better judge for yourself!

I couldn't tell what she was wearing under the white sheet. Nothing, it seemed to me. She sat down carefully on her bed, making sure the sheet didn't fall off. She sat with her head and shoulders propped against the wall.

"What's the matter?" she asked again. She was sitting uncomfortably straight.

"Nothing. Can I spend the night?"

"Here?"

"Yes."

"What happened? Where are your parents?"

For a second my inner voice squeaked, You're a teenager. She thinks you're a kid. But I stifled it and thought of the equation from my physics textbook, p(q)=Planck's constant and reminded myself I was free.

"My parents are at home. I want to spend the night here," I said matter-of-factly.

She was quiet for a second. I could not even hear her breathe. I held my own breath, wondering what she would say. Maybe she would laugh at me. Then she shrugged her shoulders and said, "Okay." She turned off the bedside lamp.
