I entered my Cabin. It’s 12 at midnight and I’m here in my office!!… It wasn’t a wonderful day at all. Worst birthday ever!!..
Today morning after reaching here, I slept on the couch, thinking about what I was and what I am now! The days and nights with Swara were insurmountable!!… I and Kavita had just that physical relation but Swara’s and mine was much more than just that!!… We never need to have s*x! s*x was different from what we had!!… It was love…
Suddenly Rohan entered my cabin. What was he up-to now? He was the one who encouraged me and now I was in this dilemma!!.. After so many days? Or shall I say months?
“Sanskar? What’s all this?”
“About what?” I tried to sound cautious.
“I want to talk to you about Kavita!!” he said in harsh voice.
“And how do that matter to you? I don’t talk about my personal life anywhere, to any random person here! So excuse me please!” I didn’t really want to share anything! What does it matter to him? Why does that matter? Why to involve with Kavita? What’s going on?
“Don’t tell me she found out you! And you liked her! Well you offered her to me on that day and it was sweet indeed but…. Now…..”
“I knew that! Mr. Maheshwari” I could see his fringed face and red poppy eyes “I encouraged you but not Kavi! I never knew it was her. If I would have I would have made sure you never did that!”
“Did what? And what are you trying to speak? You’re my friend or her’s? And what does it matter to you? If she had find you?” the next moment he punched me hard across my face.
“You bl**dy cheat! I am not like you. I agree I encouraged you but never did I know she was Kavi, you know every girl is different. Kavi is not like those others who hang around for money. She has craved for love all these years and now you are betraying her…”
“And you Mr. Roy how come you know that? I’m using her? May be I love her!” I spoke shooting daggers at him.
“I know you Sanskar, I have seen you since college. You can cheat on every one but not me. You and Swara are meant to be….. Kavita is just an another woman for you and I know that!!.. You may not be able to recognize but I’m there. I still remember your years with Swara. How can you easily forget her? Her sacrifices??.. Don’t look at me like that! Ya, I know we never had made up good together. But this time this isn’t about some bet, some prank it’s about lives. Why are you destroying Kavi’s life? The first time I saw her after 2 months, I wasn’t happy but I made myself happy thinking about her! She was so happy, her face was glittering but today no glow nothing just a pale one. Sanskar it’s first and the last time I am warning you” he held his hand upwards and pointed out me.
“and who are you? Don’t you warn me!!..”
“I’m your friend and her brother” he shot a glare onto me.
“Huh?” I couldn’t believe. What was he speaking? He was the only son of Sushant Uncle.
“She is my sister, rakhi sister and I meant what I said. But the worst think is I couldn’t save her. I warn you just get out of this. Got it? You better do that because I can’t help. She is mad for you. I hope it will be fast!!..” with that he closed the door shut and went out.
I won’t deny what he said. I duely agree!!.. Kavita wasn’t my love and can never be!!.. How in this world can I just forget Swara? The sole reason of my existence, existence as Mr. Sanskar Maheshwari….
I cried at the thought of loosing her, that slap came onto my mind the next instant!!… How on earth can I slap her??.. How could I??.. I banged my hand on the rough worn out desk and blood came out as it shot over S sharp edged point. I don’t know when I slept on the floor hugging my scattered files.
The next morning I got up when something hit my stomach. I screamed in pain as I saw Rohan. What on earth was he doing? Why the hell is he kicking me??…
But he wasn’t stopping.
“How dare you Sanskar?? How dare you?…”
And he kept on kicking me.
I slammed him next to the door not waiting more and we fought. Punching and kicking each other we were badly bruised, blood oozed out from the corner of my mouth and we shot glares.
“What the hell are you doing? Ha? Have you gone mad or what?”
“You cheap!!.. What have you done with her, with Kavita??… Do you know how’s she? She is in the hospital. What the hell did you do? What did you do spit it out damn it!!..” he shouted “She is severe and it’s all because of you”
“What the hell are you talking about? Have you lost it!!.. Nothing had happened!” I spat back.
“Then why is she ill? Why isn’t she well? I came to your house today morning and found her locked up at terrace. How could you stoop so low? Hmm? I just can’t…. ” he held his head in frustration and walked out.
I stood there numb again. Not able to digest what he said. My world started revolving again. A conclusion I made after so many attempts ended finally!!..
Whom to choose?? Swara or Kavita??
The one whom I love or the one who needs me now!!..
I don’t know what to do but for now I have to be with her! She needs me! Kavita needs me!!
Whom do you want Sanskar to choose? Swara or Kavita? Whom will he choose? Keep guessing!
