Swara’s POV :-

“Why don’t u stay here for a bit until u find an apartment ?” he asked . Shocked, I could only stare up at him . He shrugged. “I know when someone is at the end of their rope.”
At the end of their rope ??? I glared up at him . I hate looking up at someone when I talk to them so I got back on my feet . He was still taller . It made me angrier. Listen pal, I may be homeless but I’m not accepting charity .” “Where else will you go ? A homeless shelter ? Listen.” He raised a finger to my face . “One , I live by myself so you’ll only have pleasure of my company. Two ,”he raised second finger ,”you’re certainly safer here because you have me to protect you .And three, ” he raised a third finger, ” ding, ding , ding ! You can stay here for free.”

I narrowed my eyes . It all sounded too good to be true. “Why are you helping me ?” Life has beaten me enough that I know nothing came for free. He opened his mouth but nothing came out . then he shook his head . ” I don’t know.” Live with Sanskaar Maheshwari . In this huge palace. For free . That or go to the shelter or live on the streets . ” I’m not going to be your pr*stitute . ” He looked insulted . “Woman , a pr*stitute is what I won’t ever need . Have u seen this body ? Do u really think I need one ? Besides, he added, grinning , “when u decide to sleep with me , you’ll be the one paying me .”

Wow . The size of his ego must constantly give him headache. I gave him a disguste look and pretended to yawn . “Please keep talking . I always yawn when I’m interested .” Those green eyes widened and honed in on my face . I thought I pissed him off this time but the most unexpected thing happened . He started laughing . ” I like you ,” he chuckled . ” I mean you’re a knock-out but I didn’t think it went beyond that.” Did he just insult me ???

” You strike me as a smart person . I’m offering you a way out of your misery . Why don’t you grab it ?” HE plugged his nose with his fingers . But…… ” Then what do you want in exchange ?” ” NOT everyone wants something from you ,” he replied grinnly. ” Oh , is that what you think ?” I laughed bitterly . “Everyone wants something fro you one way or another. Haven’t you learned that yet ?”

He tilted his head to the side and studied my face for a moment . I wondered what he saw when he looked at me . My exotic looks and shape of my body usually gave boys the impression that I was always looking for fun . Little did they know that was the last thing on my mind , if at all . I was too busy staying alive , too busy working for my next meal to think about anything else.

” I could clean ,” I offered . Was I really doing this ? why not ? The world hadn’t given me a free ticket in so long . I was overdue for one . ” I already have someone come in three times a week for that ,” he answered . ” I can cook .” He frowned . “Don’t string me along like that . That’s not very nice .” I rolled my eyes . “Can you really cook?”
he looked like a little boy who found the last cookie at the bottom of the jar . “YES .” “DEAL !” This was too easy . you said you live by yourself , but how can u afford this place?”
He looked uncomfortable . I hoped he didn’t think I was trying to find out how much money he had in bank. That I was a gold digger . But why wouldn’t he ? He didn’t even know me.

” Look,” I hissed, feeling angry whenever I was confronted about my morality. I might be poor but I wasn’t a freeloader . My hands proved how hard I worked and I was proud of that . One more year and I would get that diploma . I’d get my a*s off to get a good life . I Never needed much . a steady job , simple house and a servicable car was more than enough to make me happy , And I would never go hungry again . I’d get there without anyones help . ” I was curious. If u think that I’m some gold digger ……..”

He held a hand up . ” Will u stop putting words in my mouth ? Contrary to what u think of me , I don’t go around telling everyone I’m rich . I’m well awre that I din’t earn this .” He gestured to the whole room . “But I will . In my own way .” His jaw was set and hands fisted . Taken aback I fell silent . Then he opened his mouth again , wiggling his eyebrows . ” Know what , you can do my homework while you’re cooking my dinner tonight .” So much for his speech about erning it . ” Hold on . I didn’t even get your name.”
” Swara Bose.” “Swara.” The way he drawled my name did something funny in my stomach . ” I’m Sanskaar Maheshwari .” I didn’t smile back, didn’t tell him I already know who he was . Who didn’t ? I was sure everyone in our college knew about him .

” Which college are you attending ?” I cut him off . ” Letting me stay here doesn’t mean I have to spill my guts , does it ?” Hmmm…… he agreed . Was I doing right by staying here ? Where else would I go ? ” You can stay in that bedroom where you slept last night . It has its own bathroom .” He went behind the counter distancing himself from me.” I’m leaving soon . Make yourself at home.” I nodded feeling awkward . was this really for free ? How could he leave me alone in this place when he didn’t even know me ? I could steal him blind for all he knew . “Thankyou . I ……” I paused unsure. ” Thankyou,” I repeated, meaning it . He nodded . I turned away from him, bitng my lip. Where the hell was that oom again ? I looked to my left , thren to my right . His apartment was enormous and I was in a panic when I left the bedroom. “Problem ?” he asked behind me . I jumped , spun around. ” I ….I forgot where the room is . Just tell me where it is and I’ll stay out of your way . ” I could fell myself blushing. When he didn’t reply , I looked up to find him staring me with a small smile . ” What ?” I demanded . “Geesh , hostile much ?” He proceeded in front of me . ” Follow me .”

I walked behind him , trying not to stare at his body too much . I almost yelped when he turned all of sudden , then winked at me and said , ” Welcome to my flat , RED . I hope you enjoy your stay .”

I hope tu team also takes some action against the one who stole the hard work of Isabelle Ronin. yeah that’s who originally wrote this story. you can can yourself check the truth.
