Hi Friends …first of all thanks a ton for all the appreciation and support…so here is chapter 26 Enjoy the ride …and do let me know how was it….pls do comment …next one on sat or sun 🙂 bless you all 🙂
You can’t chose the type you want to fall for …it just happens…destiny usually bring two extremely different people together to write a beautiful love story
Almost everyone on campus knew Radhika as Arjun’s girl…even she had stopped minding that…he had started being little less possessive…Arjun no more controlled her…she had her freedom…she had changed him a lot…He smiled more
Radhika was waiting for Arjun in the campus for mentor mentee discussion….Arjun entered and all attention went on him and then on Radhika…she was really uncomfortable… …he took a seat infront of her and smiled; ‘’So Bunny…tell me how was your experience with the last assignment’’
Radhika looked around then warned him; ‘’Call me Radhika in this room…no Bunny’’
Arjun smiled; ‘’Ok love as you say’’ She got irritated on the word love…and handed him her assignment…Arjun discussed with her and told her the places where she could improve…he gave her few topics to study and prepare a presentation.
Arjun; ‘’I have a another live project for you…we will do it this month…will let you know the dates’’
Radhika; ‘’Is it GOLDEN GATE again’’
Arjun smiled he had something in his mind; ‘’no…will tell you later…now come out…I am tired sitting here as your mentor…want to hug you’’ Radhika hid her face in her palm and Arjun chuckled at her.
Radhika left the room 5 min after Arjun…he had messaged her to come to the parking…she was walking through the corridor when a voice stopped her; ‘’You really think he loves you?’’
Radhika turned around and found a beautiful blonde staring at her…the girl walked to Radhika…she evaluated Radhika from head to toe; ‘’He will bed you then forget you’’
Radhika smiled; ‘’Then that would my issue…please don’t bother…I can handle things on my own’’
Emily; ‘’I am Em…he was same with me for 6 months…when I gave myself up to him…his love died’’
Radhika; ‘’ Did he force you for something…or did he force himself on you…whatever happened it happened with your consent…and if he walked off…you should have made him stay…rather explaining me now…I know what am I doing’’
Em; ‘’You are stupid to believe him blindly…and he is a pervert’’
Radhika; ‘’ Shut it! I know him more than you…I believe none….I just have belief on me…thanks for your concern…have a good day’’
Radhika walked out…Emily had actually spoiled her mood…she saw Arjun talking to Steve…Radhika POV; ‘’Have I really committed a mistake by giving him a chance…please god guide me…I don’t want to lose him’’ She closed her eyes removed the grim expressions and moved to Arjun…Once his eyes caught hers he smiled and kept looking at her…
Radhika gave him an arm hug….Arjun whispered in her ear; ‘’this is not a hug…now penalty….’’ They wished Steve and left Arjun took Radhika to his place …once inside his apartment he pulled Radhika in a tight hug…she could not hug him back….she kept her hands between their bodies…Arjun moved back and looked at her hands on his chest…’’Why Bunny…what wrong did I do’’
Radhika; ‘’Nothing like that…just tired…missing my family’’ Radhika couldn’t understand why suddenly tears started filling her eyes…Arjun lifted her chin up kissed the tip of her nose…wiped her tears; ‘’something is bothering you…I will wait for you to speak…since you are tired let me give you a foot massage’’ Arjun lifted her up and placed her on his bed…Radhika protested but Arjun kept massaging her feet…she could not tell him the fight going in her head…After sometime she got up; ‘’I have to go…the shift at store starts in an hour…’’
Arjun; ‘’don’t go…stay with me’’
Radhika lightly smiled; ‘’Deepak will scold me …’’
Arjun; ‘’if he raises his voice on you…He won’t see the sun again ‘’ Radhika blinked Arjun was still looking at her shocked face he picked the keys took her hand walked out of the flat. Arjun dropped Radhika infront of the store Radhika got down and suddenly hugged him tight…without breaking the hug she spoke; ‘’You will come to pick me right?’’ she wanted to assure her heart that she still had him…she kept holding him… she herself didn’t why was she so disturbed.
Arjun smiled tighten his arm around her waist; ‘’Yes my love…even if you don’t want then also…now go see you in 3hrs’’
Radhika; Thank you…’’ she smiled and went to her work…Arjun felt her disturbed he decided to wait there itself….for 3 hrs.
Sam had to go for her shoot after her classes…she was nervous Sam wanted to be event manager…plan beautiful events for life’s and make it memorable…she had planned all that…but now life has taken a different turn …she was again doing something she never wanted to do …but Sam desperately wanted to hear one line of praise from Piyali..which always went to Jai…Sam knew Neil was not happy about it but she was happy he was still standing by her side.
Neil saw Sam standing near the car waiting for him…he was on purpose delaying their departure…he was on fire…he somehow wanted to get rid of this modelling thing…he wanted Sam to study and achieve her dreams…Neil hated Jai and himself wanted Jai Khanna out of Bird Song…and now when he was out he wouldn’t let him in. Neil’s phone buzzed and it bought smile to his face
Neil; ‘’Di…was waiting for your call’’
Nandini; ‘’I know…Neil I have a update for you ….we were able to convince two Glitz partners to sell their share off…I will buy it…it would give us 30% share in Glitz…enough for us put our terms’’
Neil; ‘’that’s great DI…love you…Di no one should know that I am buying shares…’’
Nandini; ‘’No worries dear….it will be on me’’
Neil; ‘’Di…if Samrat Uncle knows this he might blame you for interfering in his daughter’s life’’
Nandini took a deep breath; ‘’I don’t care what he feels I care for you…so chill’’. Neil disconnected the call and smiled he walked to Sam and gently touched her shoulder; ‘’Lets go Sammy’’ Sam nodded and they left for the shoot.
Once at the location…Agnello was surprised and irked looking at Neil accompanying Sam….he updates Sam on the summer collection…which she had to model for….Sam got ready she looked stunning…Sam was very nervous…when she came out to face the camera…she was not able to focus …due to nervousness….She looked at Neil he smiled and gave her a thumbs up…Sam smiled and posed perfectly…she gave all her shots perfectly changed and came out….Neil was waiting for her near their car…Sam ran to him ang hugged; ‘’Thanks ….I was able to do this all because of you…thanks Neil’’
Neil; ‘’I promised you my life dear…I will not leave you now…even if you want me to’’
Sam; ‘’Why would I want you to leave…I will not be able survive without you…and why are you talking about leaving…Neil I don’t even want to think about it…please don’t talk of
leaving me again’’ Sam was hyper…her tears were not stopping….Neil had noticed that Sam was turning too in secure about him…he pulled her close wiped her tears; ‘’Baby I never said I am leaving….I said I will never leave even if you want me to…now stop crying…’’
Sam; ‘’I don’t know …. But I feel scared…Neil remember one thing…if you ever leave me…I will kill my self’’
Neil cupped her face wiped her tears….and kissed her forehead…he made her sit on the car and took her home…during the whole route Sam never left Neil’s arm…Neil desperately wanted to know what was running in Sam’s mind but she wouldn’t budge. After dinner Neil started working….Prerna had mailed him certain assignment Bird Song had recently received and wanted his opinion…Neil called Prerna and discussed with her….he ended his call and walked to his room…he peeped into Sam’s room and found her sitting on the bed holding her pillow..Neil walked in…
Neil; ‘’Sammy why are you still up..you have classes and then shoot’’
Sam; ‘’Was waiting for you…’’ Neil smiled and made Sam lie on his lap….he caressed his hair lovingly…Neil softly spoke; ‘’Sammy I know something is bothering you…please share with me…I can help you’’
Sam; ‘’ Nothing like that….why would I hide from you…you are my world’’ Neil kissed her forehead and Sam slept off…Neil gently moved her head to the pillow, he found Sam’s contract on the table he picked that up and walked out of the room.
Arjun was waiting for Radhika to come out of the store…finally she came out all tired she gave him a weak smile…Arjun didn’t like…Radhika walked to him and took her place on the bike…Arjun thought for a moment then started the engine; ‘’Bunny are you ok, why are you so dull’’
Radhika; ‘’Classes assignments 2 jobs plus my 3 hrs of dance practice….i don’t think I am sleeping…and over all its only Wednesday today…2 more days for the weekend…’’
Arjun; ‘’3 hrs Dance practice??? But why …are you performing’’
Radhika; ‘’Rhythm concert is happening in Chicago 6-7 months from now I don’t have the dates …have to prepare for that, I promised Prerna aunty that I will perform for her…’’
Arjun thought Rhythm …Neil will be in US; ‘’Bunny hold me.. close your eyes and clam yourself’’ Radhika obliged Arjun softly asked’’…ok if you don’t mind will you come to my place’’
Radhika kept quite Arjun understood she was hesitant since morning….he smiled touched her hand on his waist and softly said; fine darling…then I will stay at your place till you are properly asleep done’’ Radhika just smiled and tighten her grip on his waist. Arjun brought Radhika to her dorm…Anna was already asleep being too tired…without disturbing her Arjun came to Radhka’s room…she quickly changed and fell on the bed on her stomach…Arjun sat next to her….pressed her forehead gently…Radhika slept off in few minutes holding his hand tightly…Arjun covered her and thought; ‘’RHYTHM concert…Neil will come that time…I have to convince Radhika on my love before Neil meets her…I cannot lose her now….I will die if she leaves me’’ Arjun gave a peck on sleeping Radhika’s cheek…he got up but Radhika opened her eyes ‘’ pls stay’’
Arjun; ‘’fine close your eyes and rest …I am here’’ Arjun woke up somewhere early morning and found Radika’s head on his chest and hand on the waist he smiled looking at her hand which was firmly holding his shirt…he moved her gently got up and left…Radhika opened her eyes and smiled…’I think I am falling for you…pls god let it be a right decision’
Neil finished reading Sam’s contract he was filled with pain and anger…he was angry that Sam could not trust him…and angry on Piyali for pushing Sam to Arjun…just to bail out jai…Neil was determined to keep Sam to himself he knew Glitz owner Ayan Raizada was shady…it was just that no one had proofs..and Sam she was very innocent…he had to do something Neil walked to Sam’s room and watched her sleep…he recalled her days at RHYTHM…whenever Neil visited RHYTHM…he would find her practicing with Radhika all happy…Sam loved being with Radhika…Neil’s memories again shifted to the day when Sam had one a dance competition during college cultural fest…and how she showed her trophy to everyone…Piyali just smiled and went busy with whatever she was doing…Neil had seen Sam turning sad…but just to hide her pain she smiled again; ‘’sammy you have had enough…I know the reason for your insecurity..I will do whatever it takes to give you your smile and confidence back..’’… Neil made a call…’’get me all on Ayan Raizada…good bad black and white…everything and do it soon’’ and Radhika he knew she was hiding something…she was his family …who always brought a smile to his face…and it was his promise to himself and Dilip come what may….he will never leave his chashni alone…Radhika respected Neil love and care for her…she never refused his suggestions…Neil desperately wanted to know the reason for the change in her voice…if it’s a guy…he will have to pass Neil’s litmus test…
Radhika had fallen for Arjun…she herself didn’t knew that she would go any extent for this one person now…when you love someone truly you learn to believe them…like Sam who believed… come what may Neil will pull her out of the mess any how
Precap: Neil warns Jai….Arjun gives Radhika an unusual project.
