Its Burning !!
She leaned her head to side and observed Karthik leave the kitchen. She jumped off the counter and moved towards the pasta plate. She took out a fork. Naira forked the steaming pasta and shoved it in her mouth. As soon as the flavorful tasty bit chewed under her teeth, Naira’s eyes widened. It was awesome. She shoved some more of the pasta into her mouth.
As she was busy hogging the pasta like a caveman, she felt something sharp and stinging travel into her nostrils. She sniffed and sneezed. What is this smell ?!! She wondered. It seemed something was burning, and her eyes widened. Her body locked in a freeze. Her hands went over her mouth. Oh, Shit !! Naira turned around and ran towards the gas burner, and screamed a little.
“Oh, God !! The rice !!”
Black fumes were turning in a swirl from over the pan. Naira coughed as the rice burned into a dark mess. She slid the pan away from the burner and threw it in the sink. She opened the tap and let the water wash away the mess. Naira panicked now. She put her right hand over her forehead.
She sweated in fear again as she looked at the empty plate of pasta. She didn’t realize that, her hungry stomach had polished off everything. She switched on the fan to make the fumes blow out of the kitchen.
He had no breakfast left. The one thing that he made had burned into a black smoke while the other dish was wiped off by Naira.
Run, Naira, before you’re gone from the world, she thought to herself. She was about to do so, when she heard footstep sounds. She folded her hands in a prayer and looked up to the ceiling, praying to God, to save her.
He stood there near the door leaning on it with folded hands. She moved closer to his chest. He looked slightly surprised but his eyebrows furrowed blinking down at her.
“What ?!!” He asked.
Naira just smiled wide falsely.
“Nice weather, no ?!!” She said lightly, and cursed herself for sounding so idiotic and silly.
She was in a closed up kitchen. How did the weather come in her mind, she wondered and maybe he was thinking the same thing. He gave her look of strangeness.
“Move.” He ordered.
Naira full on went into a panic mode He pushed her off from in front of his body with his right hand and moved towards the counter. She staggered to the right side, and she gulped hard.
His back muscles bunched over, looking down at his destroyed hard work. He stood there like a stone statue. Naira’s fingers bit into the skin of her wrists. He turned around slowly.
“The pasta ?!!” He asked her softly, but she knew he was just trying to control his temper.
Naira’s fearful eyes glanced to the empty plate on the kitchen counter, he followed her eyes.
“Threw it ?!!” He asked her.
“Ate it.” She replied stutteringly.
“You don’t like pasta,” He murmured lazily, repeating her earlier words.
“I was hungry.” Naira said in a low voice.
He moved forward. Her eyes widened and she stepped back, but when he drew closer, Naira turned around to break in a run. But before she could even pump her feet on the floor, he grabbed her from behind. His strong arms banded her waist firmly. Naira squealed.
“I’m sorry !! I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to burn it. It just happened.” She whimpered in fright.
“You should have thought about it before you touched my breakfast.” He bit out in her ear.
He grabbed her forearm, and dragged her forward out of the kitchen.
“Hey !! What are you doing ?!!” She asked in a raised voice.
He just made her walk fast. His strides were longer than hers, and it was very tough to keep up pace with his.
“Slow down.” She glowered, but he only increased his pace. Naira rolled her eyes and let him drag her.
He took a turn and walked fast to her room. He pushed her in.
“Stay here.” He glared down at her.
Naira gasped in disbelief at his tone. She put her hands over her waist in a huff. She made sure to put the blackest of the black glares on her face, thoroughly showing her utter displeasure at his treatment. He stared back down at her in a cool nonchalant look.
“You can’t just lock me up.” She said up into his face.
He ignored her cry and turned around to leave, but he didn’t lock her up much to her hue and cry. She moved fast and walked along beside him.
“Where are you going ?!!” She asked.
He suddenly turned and grabbed her hand. His eyes stuck to her face. She didn’t realize his other hand was curled around her waist in a tight grip and also her chest was plastered on his front without a gap. His gaze ran down to her neck and more down and stayed locked there.
Naira tried to move away feeling very much uncomfortable again at his heated stare. She tried to move away, but he grabbed her waist with only his one hand. His head leaned down to her lips.
“I’m going out to get some breakfast. You want anything.” He asked her softly.
“Chocolates” She mumbled in reply.
His eyes slid down to her lips as he seem to register her reply. He freed her hand from his clutch suddenly, and cupped her cheek with the same hand. Naira froze at that.
“That’s the reason you taste so sweet all the time, huh ?!!” He asked her teasingly.
Before she could even open her mouth in reply, his lips grazed on her lightly at first but pressed more in a dry kiss over her lower lip and feathered softly as if in a search. Her lips started tingling and burning all over. The moist taste of his lips slid inside. Naira stayed frozen like a stone statue. Her mind and senses just failed altogether. But then he moved away and turned around.
Naira came to life and her mind and cheeks thronged in red embarrassment.
She dragged her feet after his disappearing back. How dare he do that ?!! How can he ?!!
“I’m gonna run away !!” She shouted at his back.
He walked to his car and smiled back at her mockingly.
“Do that, and I will find you. This time there will be a kiss and more than that when I get back to you.” He shot back.
Naira’s mouth hung open as she gasped. He got in the car and closed the door.
