‘’Wait …let me come along..i mean am here with you ‘’ He spoke walking out behind Annika…
They first shopped for the entire family when her eyes fell on the Swarvoski store and his on the PRADA store…
Picking up few apparels they both excused each other to try in their respective trial rooms and calmly slipped into the stores they had their eyes on.
Shivaay chose an awesome PRADA turquoise Sequined dress and a matching Clutch which he thought would not suit anyone except his Stupid . He knew her measurements and so without any doubts or further thoughts he asked the storeowner to pack it as a gift and called the Chauffeur to place it in the car.
On the other hand Annika looked for some exclusive rings for men, she couldn’t find any and being disappointed she turned to leave.
Shivaay came back to the place where they were sometime earlier and started searching for her….she was nowhere to be found….he asked the helpers in the store to look for her in trail rooms and they found Annika nowhere, it was almost 40 minutes and she was nowhere and he was getting tensed…sweat beads started forming while he at once commanded the store manager to check the CCTV …not recognising who he was the Store manager denied to do so, but one call from the government official changed the entire scenario, the police was also on their feet to search for her….It was clear she left the store but the fact as to where she left got mysterious….1 hour passed by and shivaay stepped into almost all the stores in La Fayette shopping street and sat down in the middle of the road on his knees cupping his face in his palms, when she walked towards him
‘’Shivaay’’ she smiled
He got up raged and slapped her hard making her and everyone around including the police shocked.
Tears brimmed down her eyes while she looked horrified at him as anger was at his peaks , anger of the fact for being careless, to think of something happening to her, to think of losing her once again.
He stared at people around and everyone left giving them the much needed space… after thanking the police and apologising for the trouble he dragged her to a corner.
‘’Where the hell were you? Do you even know or understand what I went through in this hour? How can you be so careless? Where was your mobile? why didn’t you pick the calls? How dare you to leave me and go? What was so important? Was this to just make me feel bad for what I have done earlier in the morning? I can never forgive you for this doing of yours !!! ‘’ he shouted while she just looked on at him
‘’Shiv listen to me..i …I’’
‘’Shut up and lets leave from here now…you can and will never change’’
‘’Shiv please listen’’
‘’I said I don’t want to listen to you Annika…can’t you understand this simple thing’’ he spoke twisting her hand and pulling her against him
‘’you are hurting me again Shivaay…you are hurting me much’’
‘’And what about you who disappeared just to take your revenge that too for a stupid reason…did you not feel , how hurt I am and would be? Look Annika , you are my responsibility…anything , any small thing happens to you, I would be responsible to answer back to everyone of my family in India and this includes Sahil and Gauri too…just keep this in mind’’
‘’Ohh responsibility…I am your responsibility…fine , if that’s what I am to you then Mr.Shivaay Singh Oberoi let me tell you , I am not a small play school going kid to not care of myself….i am independent and strong enough …’’
‘’Yeah I forgot you are old enough to take care of yourself and I have seen how much you can do that’’
‘’Enough Mr.Oberoi , you cannot just taunt me for anything and that too without knowing the reason’’ she controlled her tears this time
‘’Fine then, I am neither in a mood nor dearly want to prolong this any further, you did what you had to…how can I forget you can give tension to anyone not understanding what they will go through…anyways I think we must leave for our apartment before the things gets much nasty’’
‘’They are already nasty how much more can they get higher’’ she spoke wiping her stream of tears
‘’Okk enough now, will you now make a move from here’’ he spoke turning his back towards her
She left from there without a word, getting no reply, he turned to find her nowhere…
Shivaay TAM ‘’I can’t believe she again is doing this’’ he scratched his forehead when his mobile beeped , he opened the message which read as
‘’Don’t worry Mr.oberoi this time I am not going to disappear, I need some ALONE time and I hope I deserve that…I will reach the apartment on my own. And since you feel I am careless , let me tell you I will be in the gardens behind the Eiffel tower, if you can’t trust me you can check me on your own’’
Shivaay left from there as he too needed some alone time for him to become normal and come out of the mess. He reached the apartment and fell on the sofa, everything that happened on the day replayed and he felt stressed and slipped into sleep.
Annika on the other hand sat on a bench in the park behind the Eiffel tower and broke down into tears, she too reminisced what all happened that day and how he slapped her without listening to her. What she wanted to do and what it turned out distressed her all the more.
Time passed by quickly and the evening arrived ….Shivaay woke up with the ring of the bell. Rubbing his eyes he looked at the watch and then his heartbeat increased to search for Annika…ignoring the doorbell he ran towards her room only to find it empty…the doorbell again rang…
Shivaay TAM ‘’it might be Annika…wait …she has her key to get in…may be she lost the key…wait why am I thinking without opening the door?’’
Keeping his thoughts aside he quickly took steps and opened the door to find a delivery boy with a box on the name of Shivaay.
‘’Sir , your parcel’’ the boy handed over the box and took out his electronic equipment to take the signs
‘’What’s this and who sent this?’’
‘’I am sorry sir..i donno any details as I cannot check ..i am just a delivery boy….can you please sign here?’’
‘’yeah..’’ Shivaay signed and closed the door behind.
He was about to open the Box when Annika stepped in…He looked at her and her eyes fell on the box he was holding. She immediately snatched the box from his hand and left to her room. He was stunned but he didn’t want to argue or be stubborn.
Annika left to her room closing the door behind and already found a box neatly wrapped on the side table. Curious she opened it immediately to find a beautiful Turquoise colored sequined PRADA gown along with a clutch.
It had a note ‘’To the one and only beautiful Stupid for whom this gown is definitely designed. None else can carry or own this other than You Annika—from your Khadoos Singh Oberoi’’
She had a smile but soon it disappeared as tears still rolled down….she wrapped it back again in it’s original form and left to take shower.
The night arrived and Shivaay was waiting for Annika to come out of the room, seeing no traces of her , he walked towards her room to knock when she opened the door
‘’Are you okay Annika?’’
‘’Will you have something?’’
She nodded her head in No
‘’Look, I was tensed in the afternoon and …’’
She showed her palms indicating him to stop and left towards the kitchen to drink some water
‘’Annika listen..just let me explain you’’
‘’Did you listen to me ? did you let me explain you anything? ‘’
He looked at her stunned
‘’You …you just slapped me…slapped me right infront of crowd…you behaved like a moron’’ she spoke with hiccups
‘’Annika…you know I cannot see you in tears’’ he moved towards her
‘’Stop ..stop right there Mr.Oberoi…you are the reason for my tears…all those blissful moments you gave me were big lies an illusion you created…this is real you…the mask of being good has finally dropped down…’’
‘’misunderstanding…is this what you want to say…no…I am not misunderstanding …infact I am understanding everything proper now..no one has ever slapped me like this…never ever in my life…and you…’’ she broke down again
‘’What did you say, I wanted revenge…revenge for what? I had nothing against you. I agree I am naughty and like to tease you but I can never plan revenge against you, not even for fun…but you never understood…you made your own theories’’
Shivaay could do nothing as her tears were breaking him down more and more
‘’You know why I left you…’’
He looked on while she went into the room and brought the box which was delivered to him sometime before …
‘’this is that for which I left you…I wanted to get this for you….what all I planned and you …’’ she put the box in his hands and knelt down crying hiding her face in her palms
He too knelt down keeping the box aside and held her palms trying to move it from her face but she didn’t budge….he tried and tried but she didn’t move and he giving up hit his right hand in anger at the glass table breaking the glass making his hand bleed. Listening to the sound of cracking glass Annika looked shocked with the happening.
‘’Are you mad?’’ she screamed
‘’Why do you care?’’ he spoke rather calm
‘’Shut up. Just shut up’’
‘’Leave my hand ‘’
‘’I wouldn’t ‘’
‘’You should because this is the same hand that I raised on you. This is the same hand that brought you into tears and this is the same hand that is the reason of your pain. Let it get it’s punishment of hurting you’’
Annika was shocked to listen to him
‘’You are mad , really …’’ she ran to get the first aid box and made him sit in the chair nearby tending his wound and simultaneously shedding tears
‘’Annika look at me’’
She looked at him
‘’I was really worried for you and did so, I can never hurt you Annika , because you have no idea what you are to me’’
She didn’t speak a word
‘’I am saying truth Annika…anyone who tries to hurt you would be my enemy and that includes me too…’’
‘’Shivaay why were you worried? ‘’
‘’Because I cannot afford to lose you again. I lost you once and I can never think of losing you again’’
‘’You lost me once ? what does that mean?’’
He stayed mum
‘’I am asking you something Shivaay. What do you mean by you lost me once?’’
‘’Annika lets not discuss this …i…I just …’’
‘’you have to answer me today Shivaay. What’s that you want to dearly say me but are trying hard to not disclose. You words and actions sometimes make me feel that you know me , know me even more than I know myself..that look in your eyes, the care, the concern everything has a different story to tell and I donno what it is but I can feel it is deep…so tell me Shivaay what it is…’’
Shivaay didn’t speak….she waited patiently for him to open, she cleaned the glass pieces and deliberately stayed before him so that he would say something…but he didn’t
‘’Shivaay…I don’t know if you understand or not, but we share something beyond an employer-employee or best of friends…for the sake of our UNEXPRESSED relation tell me what’s buried in your heart ….’’
Getting no response Annika turned to go when he held her hand stopping her, she turned towards him and he at once hugged her tight. Letting off his tears which he forced to stop for a long time , he just cried and she held him tight making him feel comfortable in her arms and waited patiently…time passed by and he stopped , breaking the hug , cupped her face with his hands (one being with bandage) he spoke looking into her eyes
‘’I know you, know you since you were born’’
She stepped back looking at him shocked ………..
