She almost chocked up
Ram: He was with a girl,apparently
Ram raised his eyebrow
Swara: Don, walking?
she faked a laugh again
Swara: Seriously, sir… I might not know-know Don, but I know for a fact that he’d never do that. Believe me, he doesn’t have to woo a girl to have his way with her
Ram rubbed his chin pensively Ram: He did say they were strolling, much like a couple of lovebirds
He looked up at her, and after a long pause his phone rang
Ram: Haan Arjun, abort mission… do as I say. Yes, I’m sure
(he shouted into the phone) Back to the drawing board
he stated, as he hung up.
Swara shrugged apologetically
Swara: I’m sorry sir. I’m sure something will come up…
Ram: Swara, I need you back in the office. See, I can’t function without my smartest officer
he squeezed her shoulder Swara smiled
Swara: I was going to come back on Monday
Ram: Sure then, see you then. Have a nice weekend. I’ll get a cab, we’re in your neighborhood here, na?
Swara looked around, as though she hadn’t known that already
Swara: Oh, that’s right. You sure you don’t need a ride, sir?
Ram: Belkol. See you on Monday
he said as he shut the door behind him.Swara let out a long sigh “That was close…”She drove for a little longer till she reached her building and parked the car. When she entered the building she was really upset to see the elevator was out of function. “Great” she thought.
This was all she needed, some more cardio after all the tension she’d been through.She took the stairs and by the 7th floor was exhausted, leaning over the balustrade.
‘Did you give my regards to Ram?’
she heard a cold voice and she glanced up to see Don on the next level, sitting on the stairs. Swara froze. He sure looked angry.
She stared at him while he began walking down the stairs towards her,painfully slowly.She began panting. A million thoughts travelled her mind, what could she do to convince him she didn’t try to set him up, yet again?
“He’s never going to believe me. He’ll probably just kill me right here, my body won’t be discovered for days on end as nobody takes the stairs… I just knowit’ tears began to fill her eyes.
He kept getting closer, it all seemed in slow motion in her head “Just get it over with” she thought then shut her eyes tightly as he stood right in front of her.
Then, totally unexpectedly he grabbed her into his arms, hugging her tightly. She opened her eyes in shock, and just stood still.
Don: Thank you
he said as he squeezed her into his arms They stood like that for a while, the lights went off as the lighting was motion activated.He caressed her hair and kept thanking her. She couldn’t believe it.She finally faced him
Swara: You’re not mad at me?
He smiled and caressed her cheek as he nodded
Swara: Lekin… how do you know…?
Don: I was just returning when I spotted your car on the side of the road, then I saw you arguing with Ram over something. I noticed your hair was damp
he ran his fingers through her hair smilingly
Don: I thought he must have called you to the office on short notice. When he got out of the car Ididn’t know what to think of it, but as I reached the building I saw his team in another car returning. They had tracked me down… I got it
She sighed in relief
Swara: A retired officer spotted you at McDonald’s last night, then followed us here. He gave Ram saab the address. I didn’t know what to do…
He hugged her again and she continued
Swara: I convinced him it couldn’t have been you
He then faced her
Don: Swara, listen to me. We’re not safe here. I tried to keep it as low key as possible, but now you’re involved too, I can’t risk that
his voice was grave and his eyes piercing, she looked at him in awe.
Don: We need to get out of here
Swara looked away, she felt her stomach knotting
Swara: Don, I….
He grabbed her shoulders and caught her gaze
Don: Swara… listen to me, please
he emphasized his request and she complied
Don: Let me take you away, let’s start a new life
he grabbed her hands in his and kissed her knuckles, closing his eyes as he did so. She smiled, but was still in shock
Don: What you did for me today… now I know for sure you wouldn’t betray me… I know you care, Swara
he gave her the saddest look that broke her heart
Don: I should have done this long ago. When you took that shot for me back in Germany I knew… I knew you loved me
he shook his head she gasped. Hearing him say it made her realize once and for all that was nothing but the truth. She did love him, and how.
Don: But I didn’t think you’d ever … give this a chance. I know what you think of me. I know what I did to you
he sighed and kissed the insides of her palms slowly. She felt tears fall down her cheeks, but she wasn’t sobbing.
Don: I can’t undo all that. But I regret immensely to have hurt you, Swara
he wiped her tears
Don: Like I told you in Berlin, and even in Paris…I want to leave this all behind. I want a different life. I want a life… with you
he smiled caressing her cheek, his eyes widening as he saw her slip underneath his palm but quickly managed to grab her before she would’ve fallen down the stairs.
She opened her eyes and the darkness engulfed her, she raised her head and felt a restriction around her waist- it was Don’s arm. He mirrored her reaction
Don: Are you alright?
Swara: What happened?
she tried to accommodate her sight to the darkness
Don: You fainted. I took you upstairs
She sighed and leaned back on the pillow. He leaned over her and caressed her face
Don: Do you remember what I was saying before you passed out?
She looked into his eyes and nodded
Swara: Yes, but I still don’t understand what you were saying
Don: What’s there to understand? I thought I’d made myself clear
She gazed at him. No he hadn’t. She was more confused than ever.
Don: Will you let me take you away from here?
Swara: … And go were?
Don: Away… far away. Somewhere where I’m not Don the worldwide wanted criminal and you’re not Swara the officer. Somewhere where we’re sirf Don aur Swara
She looked at him questioningly
Swara: You know we can never have that
she barely whispered Don frowned
Swara: Because as you said, you’re wanted all over the world, Don! Anywhere you’d go there’d be a Vivek to call detective Ram and inform him of your whereabouts
Don: I have a plan. We can escape all this forever, if you want to.
She looked at him questioningly
Don: But I won’t tell you now. First I need you to trust me
Swara: I do trust you
shefound herself saying. Did she, really? She wondered.Don half-smiled
Don: Let’s go to Berlin for a while. I have immunity there. We’re not safe here. Let me show you how things could be
he caressed her arms with his fingertips and peeked at her to watch her reaction. Sure enough, she was blushing
Swara: But I told detective Ram I’d be back in the office on Monday.
Don: Screw Ram
Don:He’ll have to wait
he then leaned in and captured her lips with his. He kissed her tenderly for a while then the kiss grew more urgent and he pulled her closer into his arms as he leaned over her.
Don: Say you’ll come with me
was all she could mutter between his kisses
Don: You will?
he faced her, his eyes bright and happy like little boy’s.She nodded smilingly.He grinned but his smile slowly faded as he saw she was lowering her gaze and frowning
he tilted her chin to face him
Swara: I’m still scared
she whispered, not removing her eyes from her hands.He sighed and closed his eyes
Don: I’ll have to earn your trust, sweetheart. I know that
He then got off the bed and smiled
Don: Berlin, tomorrow
She hid her face into her palms and he giggled lightly
Don:I love it when you shy away
he caressed her hair lovingly
Don:Rest now.I’ll make the arrangements, we’ll have to be extra careful.
She nodded and watched him walk out the door, smiling like a little boy.
