“I..” she starts and Shivaay bulges his eyes.
Immedietly he closes her mouth.
“You dont have to! Not at this condition atleast. Our ‘first’ step isnt gonna be at a drunk state. I know you would have something planned fot it. A special one. I dont wanna ruin it just because i made you drunk” he retaliates but she kept mummbling something under his hold.
“Arey mere bath suno, what i wanted to say is that.. I.. ” was what heard from her squeals behind his palm.
“Shh.. You’re totally high.. you should probably go to sleep” he says and drags her to her room.
“I should probably undo my zip now. It’s getting out of control.” Anika casually says shocking the hell out of Shivaay.
“Ayee chii.. Anika.. You’re comepletely out of your senses.. now please go and sleep” he says pretty startled and panicked.
“But but.. I have to pee” She whines atlast hitting shivaay right on his head.
“You want to.. what??” Shivaay was finally breathing out in relief.
“How long i have been controling myself ?!? Just let me to the loo” she gives away some crocodile tears and pushing him away she staggers to the restroom.
Minutes later, she comes out and sheepishly smiles to Shivaay, Who himself was adoring the cutest kid infront of him. He bites his tongue as to how he thought the situation would be and how it turned out to be.
She walks to him and pulls his cheeks.
￼”Chalo.. now your turn” she says.
“I dont wanna use the restroom now” he says and she rolls her eyes.
“Duffer.. about the ‘Us’ Talk. Now it’s your turn” she says and drags him to the couch.
He sits and she takes her fav spot.
￼Swinging by his neck, she looks at him with a smile. While he begins to speak.
“Myself Shivaay. And that’s how i like to be addressed. My Name is what i earned for myself and not my surname.
Om and Ru are my lifelines. My constants. They know me, inside out and are with me through thick and thin. Priyanka, the pehelwaan, (chuckles) our choti angel. We all made sand castles in our private beach, drew moustaches on each other’s face, stole mom’s gulab jamun and ate them the day before celebrations.
Mom and dad wanted me to handle one of their companies. While I wanted to stand on my own legs. They protested. Yet i was stubborn. They decided to let me go only after I promised to stay here in our own house. And eventually i met you. The daring, chirpy Monkey. How easily you turned all my sorrows into happiness.
My life’s biggest weakness was Sheryl. But you know what ?? She isnt my weakness anymore. (After a pause) ‘You are'” he says and chins her up and looks into her hazels.
Anika looked dumbstruck. He continues speaking.
“I never had this talk even with my brothers nor with Vicky. But i wanted you to know this.
I loved Sheryl. Yes. But the moment i found out that she betrayed me, (a teardrop rolls down his cheeks) i just wanted to shout out loud, scream, and run on the street like a maniac. But all I did was… I remained silent. Have you ever felt so sad , that it it hurts you physically inside?? I Dumped all my tears inside me. I never cried.
Can i cry now ?” He asked and Anika was crying herself. She nods and hugs Shivaay tighter now. Shivaay cries out loud on her shoulders.
￼The tears that he had been hiding inside him, the unshared pain, his infamous broken side of his, the side which he hid, to be revealed only when he found peace. He now found peace inside her arms, inside her warm embrace.
After a prolonged period of crying and cuddling, he withdrew himself and Anika wiped away his tears. And hugged him again. She gently kissed his chest.
￼”You deserve all the love in this world. You may look Angry and grumpy from outside. But i know that there is this innocent child inside you craving for love. You may portray to be a great wall. But all you need is a tight hug everyday and a person to assure you that ‘Everything is alright’. A person to look behind your fake smile, and wipe your tears away. A person to love you .” She says and cups his face now.
“I wanna be the person Shivaay” she says and Shivaay’s heart skips a beat. She did it. Confessed it without the actual three words. He sat there all numb and melted.
Still with her hands cupping his face, she nears him and places her forhead on his’s. With closed eyes, and Gently fanning him with her breath she herself inhales his cologne. Creating their own territory, and both breathing in the same air, they blushed so hard turning their cheeks all crimson.
She opens her eyes and her eyelashes brushes his forehead. She slowly withdrew herself and looks into his oceanic eyes.
She lowered herself and without prior notice, her lips met his’s. He was utterly stunned, there were wild tremors inside his nerves.
It was wrong. She was not in her sense. But it felt so right. Her pink soft lips brushing his nervous lips.
He slowly started responding and she let her hands travel through his messy hair. His hands were gently encircled around her waist.
Only a minute later he realised that she wasnt responding. He broke the kiss and withdrew himself to see her sleeping peacefully. A smile escaped his lips.
Her head fell behind and her hair was swaying down perfectly. He was holding her just like a child. Pampering her, he slowly picked her up in bridal style and took her to her bed and placed her flat even before covering her with the soft duvet.
Gently placing a kiss on her forehead, “Im sure, there isnt a beautiful Confession than this. When the first time i met you, i honestly didnt know that you were gonna be this important to me. I love you Anika” he whispers and caresses her hair.
So how was it?? ??
