There is a pin drop silence in the room. Everyone is nervous what will happen now. It can be seen in their faces. She is also nervous but less than them as she knows I will win but what to do she can’t stop herself from being nervous. It would be a lie if I say I wasn’t nervous. I was also nervous but after looking after her and her that ‘you are doing great will win it’ smile I also get my confidence back. And that’s it. I get my next move. After giving my next or better to say last move, I pressed the timer and looked at my opponent’s face and the smile on his face faded suddenly. The whole crowd on the hall started clapping and cheering for me. I smiled victoriously looking at him then I looked at her. She is praying to god or rather thanking god and then she looked at me. She has a proud smile on her face.
My trance suddenly broken by the host’s voice. He is announcing me winner. Till now I didn’t notice but as soon as he said I notice that I had broken my own record. I am so damn happy right now. I just want to run to her and hug her. But this stupid host asked me to come on stage to receive the award from principal’s hand. As I was going to stage while cursing the host I see that principal whispered something to the host. While I climbing the stairs I listened the host saying Ms. Swara Singh please come on stage to receive this award with Abhiman as we all know that he would like to take this award with you like always. And after listening to this my happiness has no boundaries. Oh. I love him for this.
I turned around and saw her coming smilingly. I go down take her hand in me and went back to stage. Principal give me the trophy of the chess champion which we both taken together. Everyone started hooting for me by saying ‘Abhi Abhi Abhi’. I saw her she was almost in her happy tears which I don’t like. I hate tears in her eyes. I hugged her tightly and told in her ears ‘I told you never to cry. Love you’. I know now she has a big smile on her face after listening this.
