My layered demeanour (Episode 8)

Link for previous epi:

Guys, Surbhi calls KVB both as KVB and as Karan. So wherever i have used Karan, it’s only for KVB.

(Surbhi’s pov)

I saw him moving towards his car as l grinned sheepishly. However, somewhere I felt sad because of me he would be away from his birthday party. But it just serves him right. ‘I don’t know what problem he has with me’, I mumbled. Soon, his car was out of sight and l went towards the venue.

‘Who the hell keeps a party at eighth floor’, I had again mumbled as I got into the lift. I had just come to this party on bhai’s insistence. I don’t know why is he so obedient? He always listens to dad & I cannot just make my bhai upset. I was even more frustrated when I had requested bhai to accompany me but as usual he had denied citing a really unavoidable work. I had decided to be here for only half an hour. I was so preoccupied with my thoughts that I never realised when I had reached the floor. I came out of the lift as I traversed this small hallway before reaching this really beautiful door. I showed my invitation pass to the security guard standing there & he paved the way for me. I slightly pushed the door as I stepped in.

‘What the f**k!!!’ I had almost shrieked seeing the view in front of me. Few of his friends were enjoying the loud music which the DJ was playing there. I don’t know who all he had invited because there were many whom I didn’t knew. Never mind, the problem with me was that there was not a single girl in the party. My insides were burning as my anger flared up. Someone had just tapped my shoulder and I turned sideways to look at the person. It was Karan’s friend. He had literally shoved a glass having a certain drink towards my face. I kept my hand on the glass as I pushed it slightly backwards and glared at him.

‘Why are there no girls in this party?’ I had questioned him.

‘The girls are having a party on the terrace,’ he replied as he took a sip of that drink.

‘What?’ My eyes had widened listening to the word “terrace”. ‘But. . .’

Seeing my hesitation, he had asked ‘Don’t you trust me?’

‘No,’ I had replied curtly.

I decided to call one of my friends but I was not sure who all he had invited. So, I just decided to leave this place. I came out of the room as he followed me and tried to stop me. Suddenly, I saw someone descending the stairs. ‘Maya,’ I had uttered.

‘Hi Surbhi! What are you doing here? We are all at the terrace. Come and join us.’ She had chirped excitedly.

I gave her a faint smile as I started ascending the stairs. Maya excused herself to go to the washroom and now, I was standing all alone in front of the door that led to the terrace. I took a deep breath as I gathered some courage and entered the terrace area. I scanned and roamed the entire area with great difficulty but was unable to trace anyone there. I came back to the door but unfortunately found it locked. I banged my hand on the door as I realized that it was their plan as I found myself trapped.

My knees started wobbling as I looked at the sky and then at the road below. I felt the ground below me moving as the thought of falling from here evaded my senses. Fear with his outstretched arms had started engulfing me. . . my fear of heights. I had decided to convince my friends to come down when l had entered this place. I was even pretty sure to have a hold on my fear for a few minutes… but everything was now slipping from my hands. I ran back towards the door as I leaned onto it with my head and hands resting on it. I was about to bang the door when I heard someone talking on the other ride.

‘She is there on the terrace. . .’ This was all I could make out. An uneasiness crept inside me as l bolted the door from my side. My head had started spinning as I felt myself going into a daze. I quickly called up bhai but his number has unreachable. I fell on my knees as I decided to call him. I dialled his number with a great difficulty as I kept the phone near my ears. I was unable to take it any longer.

‘Hello,’ I heard his voice from the other side.

‘Shauraya’, was all I could utter as l felt my senses betraying me.
