Thank you so much for your comments. I love you all for that. I portrayed Suhani as a girl who gets irritated by love and who hates marriage. I can’t make her fall in love easily. It will take real time for her to change her perception and it needs a very valid reason. I have something in mind, but will take time. I am sorry for that. Yuvi’s realisation is on the way. Hope you guys will like it.
We packed our bags by noon and left after having lunch. Suahni and Kasyap had tents in theirs. I took Guari with me, Suhani was with Kasyap, Bhavna with Sharad and Soumya with Krishna, I just met them today, but I had heard a lot about them from Suhani. The drive took around have an hour. We reached end of forest and there was an office of forest authorities. We greeted them. One of the guards came with us as guide. He walked in front. Kasyap and Suhani were just behind him. I was walking a bit back. I looked at her, for the first time after I met her, I saw her quite for this long time. She was actually listening. Now I really understood what she meant when she said Kasyap speaks more. She seems to be very happy. I took her pic. She looked very cute and innocent. She was half turned towards him and was walking.
Me : Suhani, you will,
I was about to tell her that she will fall down, but before me completing the sentence, she fell.
We all laughed. She too laughed and got up. Kasyap teased her.
Me : Suhani, look forward and walk.
Kas: Even then she will fall!!
Suh : You!!
She started beating him and fell down again.
We laughed even harder. She got up again.
Kas : Come on now, hold my hand. You are still like a five year old kid.
Suh : No need I can walk.
She walked a bit fast and falls again.
All of us sighed. Kasyap held her hand and led her forward. She stared at him as a kid would. She is very innocent.
After a while Bhavna called Kasyap. He turned back. Suhani fell for the fourth time!!
Kas : God this girl, are you looking for a chance fall down??
She smiled, but was not getting up.
We rushed to her.
Kas : What happened to you? Are you fine?
Suh : (trying to get up, but fails) I am fine.
Kasyap helped her to get up. She was not able to stand properly. She seemed to be badly hurt.
Kas : Come on now, give me your bag.
Suh : No I can’t. It’s as heavy as yours!! Maybe more.
Kas : (holding the bag) You are not going to carry this!
Suh : Neither you.
They started arguing.
Me :Guys stop it now.
I grabbed the bag.
Me : Kasyap is right, you won’t be carrying it any more.
Suh : Yuvi, it’s really heavy!
Me : Don’t argue now!!
Suh : (sighed), Ok then, enjoy!!
She had difficulty in walking, Kasyap held her. They walked likewise for a short distance. She was still struggling to walk.
Kasyap took her in his arms.
Suh : What are doing, put me down!!
Kas : (Sternly)No way, now stay still.
Bhavna is right; he is only person whom she obeys. I don’t know why, I was feeling very odd and bad when he lifted. It seems as I don’t like it!! But why??? Ouch!!! Suhani was right, her bag is really very heavy!!. Because of two bags on my shoulder I was not able to think about her and my feelings.
End of POV.
After a while they found an ideal place for camping. Kasyap made Suhani sit on a nearby stone. The place had a stream nearby. They were all excited about it, especially Suhani. Guard gave them instructions about how to camp and told them to keep the place clean.
Guard : I will come in the morning and check, only after that you can leave.
They agreed, he leaves.
Suh : Kasyap, Yuvi, you guys had enough by now, let others put up the tent, you two rest.
Gauri : Yeah Viyu, di is right, we five will put up the tent.
Kasyap started dressing Suhani’s wound. She had a cut on her elbow nd her leg was paining. Yuvi watched him doing it. Kasyap cleaned her wound with water and was about to put the ointment.
Yuvi : Hey, stop now!
Kas : What happened?
Yuvi : How can you put the ointment before applying antiseptic? She fell in mud, there is high chance that the wound will get septic.
Kas : But I don’t have antiseptic with me.
Yuvi : What ?? You came without antiseptic, how can you be so careless? Now move back, I will do it.
Kasyap stared at Yuvi, but he moved back.
Yuvi started dressing her wound.
Yuvi : (concerned) Suhani, be careful.
Yuvi dressed her wound, by then the others had put up the tent and come to them.
Bh : You know Yuvi, this one such rare occasion were you can see Suahni resting after being hurt.
Suh: I am not that hurt and I won’t be resting from now.
Kasyap stared angrily at her. Bhavna,Soumya and Sharad laughs.
Sou: She didn’t help in putting the tent only because Kasyap is here.
Kas : I know that, else she would be jumping up and down in this situation too.
Yuvi : (astonished) Suhani, why are so careless regarding your health??
Sou : She says its only one life and you have to enjoy it to the fullest, time is less.
Kas : Yeah right, go on like this, your life will be really short.
Suh : Stop it now guys, just because I am not saying anything, that doesn’t mean that you all will scold me. Now I am resting, but only on one condition that I would enjoy at the night.
Yuvi : No way, you hurt your leg!!
Suh : Yuvi please, this is my idea and I want to enjoy!!
Yuvi : Ok fine, then stay still for a while.
Yuvi takes out a bandage from the kit.
Suh : What are doing, please don’t touch my foot.
Yuvi : Really, then how do expect me to put this bandage?
Suh : I will do it myself.
Yuvi : With your injured hand?
Suh : It’s not that paining, I can manage.
Yuvi: Suhani why are you so stubborn, now stay quite. I swear I will make you rest for the evening.
He held her foot. She felt very odd. He covered her leg with bandage.
Yuvi: Don’t remove it till night.
Suh : I can’t wear it till then.
Yuvi : You have to.
Suhani looked at others helplessly. Kasyap and Sharad stared at Yuvi.
Fun in the camp.
