Hai Friends…. This is the tenth part of my fan fiction. Hope you all will love it..
We get down at the college bus stop.
Me: ok bye…
Sameer: I will walk with you.
Me: it’s ok. I will go by myself.
Sameer: hey I am not coming for you. I have promised my friend that will take her friend to hostel. So….
Sameer wink and smile. We walk together to my hostel.
Me: thank you…
Me: just thanks……
Sameer: oh.. So this is advance thank you. So I have to do something worth that… Hmm…. Okkkk……..
Me: it’s not like that….
Sameer: just kidding yaar…
We both smiled.
Sameer: ok. There we reach your hostel. Bye…
I waved bye and walk inside. I turned to the gate when I reach my building. He was there at the gate, look at me….. His gaze was on me till I reach the building….
I waved him again and went inside.
It was after the dinner I feel kind of disturbed if I am sure that is the word to say. I don’t know the reason. May it’s because I was alone and the room look empty. Or maybe…… I wasn’t sure…… was….. Was it Sameer….???
I was not thinking when I dialed Sameer’s number. But the ring of his phone rang my brain too. I become alert of what I was doing. But it was too late to disconnect.
Sameer pick the call.
Me: hi. I mean hello..
Sameer: (smiles) have your dinner?
Me: ya. . You?
Sameer: me too… So??
Me: so …
Sameer: so… why do you called????
Me: just called…..
Sameer: without any reason?
Me: No… I mean.. ya…
Me: I…. I had dinner…. So……
Me: so… I called to check whether you have dinner….. So. I called….
Sameer: (laughs) Naina… Relax…. You don’t need a reason to call me ok??
Sameer: You can call me whenever you feel like calling okk?
Sameer: so. When will be Shefali back?
Me: tomorrow evening…
Me: if the drama competition was not there, I may have also gone home.
Sameer: why? You don’t like hostel?
Me: hostel is nice… But it’s not our home na…. It’s second home….
Sameer: are you staying in hostel for the first time?
Me: yes.. Why?
Sameer: that’s why…
Me: have you stayed in hostel before?
Sameer: yes. From childhood…. So I am used to all these….
Sameer: my mom wants the best for me so she put me in country’s best boarding schools from childhood….
Me: oh. Do you miss her??
Sameer: I used to. But now not much.
Me: will you call her every day?
Sameer: No. . Do you call your mom every day?
Me: I wish I could.
Me: I lost my mom when I was a kid.
Me: my Pappa is school librarian. He worked at my school. He always keep me under his watching eye.
Sameer: and why he sends you away here??
Me: because of my chacha. He told papa to send me here. So I can have good education. Pappa always want me to excel in my studies. So….
Sameer: so.. You are Pappa’s pet?
Me: pet no. Pappa is very strict. He always talks like he is angry with everyone. But I know he is very sweet from inside.
Sameer: oho…. So who else are there in your family?
Me: chacha chachi and pooja Didi. We live with them. Chachi and chachi loves me just like Pooja Didi. They haven’t shown any difference between us.
Me: sorry… I am talking a lot and not allowing you to say anything….
Sameer: no. I like to listen to your voice….
Sameer: I…. mean…. I ….. I like listening….
We both were silent for some time. A kind of silence that is so sweet and filling.
Sameer: ok.. I think you should sleep now. Good night…
Me: ok. Good night…
That night I sleep peacefully. And for some reason I don’t feel alone that night. I could feel the presence of…… someone…… someone special……
