Hi everyone…sorry to keep you waiting…I am still washing off the holi color off me…enough of me….here is the next chapter…pls pls pls do comment…Arjun and Radhika will meet after few more chapters,,,pls bear till then….and do let me know how was it..
They speak about intuition and sixth sense…its nothing it’s your heart telling you the truth…or alerting you from upcoming truth, dangers or negativity …one should always listen to their heart and then think with their mind
‘He held her tight in his arms and was kissing her body madly…his hands were kneading her flesh…he just wanted her completely… he wanted to be in her…he rolled her and got on top of her pressing her soft body with his hard one…she smelled pure… fresh…her lips whispered a name…but that wasn’t his name …he was furious…he griped her tightly to get a response in his favour but she still took the other name… then suddenly a strong arm pulled him off her…and pushed him away …she hugged that figure and the figure hugged her back…holding her like a doll in his arms…the stranger gave him an angry glare it was similar to that of a tiger….then lifted her up and walked off with her in his arms….he screamed for her ‘Radhika!!!’…But he lost her’. Jai woke up with a jerk…he was sweating…it was a dream…Jai thought; ‘’I will never let anyone take you from me…you will be mine’’
Sam was getting ready …when Piyali knocked at the door…Sam opened the door Piyali after coming inside the room; ‘’so what have you thought after your bachelors is completed’’
Sam; ‘’I will pursue masters’’
Piyali; ‘’Sam…if you want we can get you into a good foreign University through a little extra fee…’’
Sam cut her off; ‘’Mom I suppose…we already are in crisis with Bird Song…Mehra’s hold 40% of our company…Ours…and we are doing nothing about it…now you want me to waste another lakhs of rs in the name of prestigious education that’s ridiculous ….I will continue but in a University where I can pay my own expenses….by scholarships or part time jobs’’
Piyali smirked; ‘Don’t tell me what our situation is…and scholarship forget it… you are not Jai or Radhika…you could not even earn the scholarship for Doon academy…forget about the University…’’
Sam was hurt; ‘’Yes…I am not your Jai…and I don’t want to be…and about Chashni…she is the best no doubt about that…and the reason for her being the best is that she has the best mother in the world…which I never had’’ Sam stomped her foot wiped her tears…took her helmet and keys and drove off.
Sam walked inside Radhika’s flat…and hugged Mala tightly she was crying profusely …Mala patted Sam and asked; ‘’What’s wrong Beta…did some hurt you?’’
Sam wiped her tears and spoke; ‘’Aunty do you think I am a good for nothing person’’
Mala; ‘’Now who said that…Sam you are an achiever….you scored yourself a position in student exchange programme in a batch of 200 students…only 15 seats were there… you are one of the top five…you are the best contemporary dancer in RYTHYM…you have so many accolades…you are a winner in every sense’’
Sam; ‘’then why does Mom think that …I am not as good as bhai or radhika’’
Mala; ‘’First…every parent has a different way of motivating kids may be Piyali tried to motivate you by competitive streak..…second you are different from Jai he has always been a book worm and you are logical…and about Radhika… she sometimes is too practical …but you are empathetic not everyone is so good at heart…no two people are equal beta…love yourself for what you are and rest will be easy on its own’’
Sam wiped her nose looked at Mala and smiled; ‘’What is there for breakfast…and is Chasni up’’
Mala ; ‘’Breakfast Poha…and no she sleeps like a giant…I am tired of her…don’t know how will she attend classes in US’’
Sam gave a broad smile; ‘’Aunty I will wake her up…and will pack an alarm clock with her…will join you and uncle for breakfast’’ Sam got up and walked in to complete the mission of waking Radhika up.
Same Day Evening
Since Neil had heard of Arjun’s interest in Radhika he was restless…he knew Arjun will find her sooner or later…Radhika was not the one to fall for anyone not even Arjun…she used her brain more than her heart…But once Arjun knows Jai Khanna loves Radhika…he will do anything to get her and hurt Jai…and Radhika was about to Join NYU…same university where Arjun was pursuing his MBA…Neil prayed they shouldn’t cross each other at any cost…he wanted his buddy safe….finally he decided to speak to Radhika…he dialled her no. Radhika answered; ‘’Hi handsome…what’s up’’
Neil couldn’t help but Smile; ‘’Where are you’’
Neil; ‘’Is Sam with you…?’’
Radhika; ‘’No…she left for RYTHYM…I am not going today had some work …but why’’
Neil; ‘’Can we meet…now’’
Radhika mischievously; ‘’So you finally agreed to consider me as a prospective girlfriend……yessssss ….I knew it’’
Neil; ‘’Shut up…I am coming to pick you…stay there’’
Radhika suddenly saw Jai in the Campus searching for something…she quickly hid behind the wall; ‘’Neil be quick…Jai is here…and I am in no mood of romance’’
Neil laughed; ‘’Ok darling…will be there is 10 min’’
US New York City Arjun’s apartment…7:00 AM
It had become a habit for Arjun to watch Radhika’s dance video every time he could…she was becoming a drug for him…an undying thirst …he wanted her …and as Neil had refused to let him know anything about her…it had fuelled in interest in her …he had his ways…he could get this easily done..one call and Prerna will happily tell him the name…but he did not want to hurt Neil…he decided he will get things done secretly…there never had been a girl who said no to him…once he finds her …she will definitely fall for him…and he can get over with it…Arjun picked his mobile and replayed the video…he again moved his finger over the screen…’’I will find you’’…Arjun had a strange hunger for this dancing swan in his eyes.
Arjun dialled Nandini again …she answered; ‘’Wow!!…am I dreaming…my brother called me 3rd time in a week…’’
Arjun; ‘’tell me her name…I know you are aware for her’’ Nandini cursed herself for sharing the video with Arjun.
Nandini; ‘’Arjun…stop being a pervert… I told you she is Neil’s friend…and dare you do something wrong…she is a very good girl’’
Arjun; ‘’Calm down Nandu…I really like her…what’s wrong in a friendship…if she can be friends with Neil why not me’’
Nandini didn’t know what to say…she took a deep breath and replied; ‘’Listen Arjun…she is exactly what I used to be… and I don’t want one more innocent soul to be destroyed..hope you understand’’
Arjun kept quite; ‘’Sorry Nandu…didn’t wanted to hurt you…I will not cross any of my limits’’ Arjun disconnected the call…but in his head he had taken the decision ‘’Sorry Nandu…but I can’t resist her…I will get her’’.
Mumbai Juhu Beach
Neil and Radhika were walking on the beach quietly…Neil didn’t knew how to explain her to be alert. Finally Radhika gave up her tongue was itching to talk
Radhika; ‘’So are we on a date’’
Neil stopped walking and glared at Radhika; ‘’will you stop flirting with me…its awful’’
Radhika laughed; ‘’You know Neil…I can only flirt with you…because you will never take it seriously…and now speak up…I know something is running in your head’’
Neil; ‘’Chashni…you will be going to a new place…where you a have never been…the people and their behaviour would be different…I mean…sometimes your wavelength might not match…or someone might act too good with you…it all can be a sham…. You need be alert’’
Radhika noticed Neil’s expression…he was not clear on what he should say…he was not looking into her eyes…Radhika caught hold of his hands; ‘’Neil I know you want to keep me safe…and I will be …I don’t know what’s troubling you but if there will be a problem…I will call you first’’
Neil knew he could not explain himself but he smiled and nodded in response…Radhika took out an envelope and handed over to Neil…he gave her a questioning look…’’Neil this is a 6 months writing course available in Singapore University for people working in journalism and advertising or any such fields…I had filled the application for you this your acceptance letter…Neil smiled and pulled her into a bear hug…she was the only one who understood his silence. Radhika broke the hug;
‘’Now don’t be a baby…I know you won’t be able to stay without her…and even I don’t want her to be alone’’
Neil; ‘’How can I leave Mom’’
Radhika; ‘’You have the permission…I told her…and Neil you never thought about yourself…you have been helping aunty with Bird Song and RYTHYM for very long….you even did your masters through evening classes…take this course for your own good…Mom and dad will take care of Aunty’’
Neil cupped her face; ‘’You are a true friend…thank you’’
Radhika ; ‘’Most welcome…and I want to give you a suggestion…I know you will not take it but I will still say…Neil you have always been so present for Sam that she never realised the pain of your absence…sometimes please think about yourself too…give her little pain of absence so she knows what are you for her’’
Neil looked at her and smiled; ‘’You should get an ice cream for being my best friend’’ Radhika gave up…after an ice cream Neil dropped radhika home…
Jai had been waiting in his car near Radhika’s place to get a glimpse of her…he watched her get down from Neil’s bike she chatted with Neil for a minute hugged him and went inside the building… it pinched him…she never hesitated being close with Neil…but he couldn’t do a thing as Piyali had warned him…then he thought ‘’end of the day I will be the one to claim the full right on you…and others will only watch’’
Radhika entered her flat and found Sam chatting with Dilip in her night dress…she walked to her…’’Hey that’s my night dress’’
Sam ; ‘’I know…now mine as I am wearing it…’’
Radhika; ‘’So you are staying with me tonight’’
Sam; ‘’No I am staying with Mala aunty…I am angry with you…I had called you at least 50 times since the evening but you didn’t answer my call’’
Radhika realised she had turned her phone on silent as Neil said he wanted to discuss something important; ‘’Sorry Sammy I forgot My phone was on silent…anyways…lots of chit chat today’’
Mala; ‘’first go arrange your bed…which you forgot to do in the morning…you will get food only after that’’ Sam laughed and Radhika made a face she quietly went inside the room to follow her Mom’s order.
Samrat knew Sam was annoyed with Piyali and is staying at Radhika’s place today…Piyali came to him; ‘’Samrat did you speak to Sam …she is not answering my calls…I am worried’’
Samrat; ‘’She is at Dilip’s place…she will stay there tonight’’
Piyali; ‘’Thank god I god worried…she is too careless…will speak to her tomorrow’’
Samrat; ‘’You will not say a word…she is not careless just hungry for little affection…which you missed to give her due to your extra attention on Jai…and continuous comparison has made her stubborn and emotional…now I will handle my daughter my way…you stay out of it…’’
Sam was chatting on FB…Radhika was reading…she looked at Sam ‘’now with whom are you so busy’’
Sam; ‘’My dream man…who else’’
Radhika felt bad for Neil…she softly spoke; ‘’Has he ever reciprocated your feelings’’
Sam; ‘’Right now we are friends…when he comes to India I will share my feelings with him’’
Radhika; ‘’When did you last see him’’
Sam; ‘’may be around 2 yrs back…had attended a party with Dad he was there with his sister and father…it was love at first sight for me’’
Radhika rolled her eyes; ‘’love at first sight …rubbish’’
Sam suddenly typed a wrong message…and Arjun replied with question mark…she apologised quickly and replied-‘’ was talking to chashni …so made a mistake’’
Arjun POV- ‘’Chashni…what kind of name is that…I don’t why the hell Neil is in love with this stupid girl…she doesn’t even have a good taste in friends…how will she understand Neil….but my swan will be someone with a beautiful name…’’ Arjun smiled and closed his eyes all he could recall was his dancing swan….he wanted her!!!
Jai is jealous of Neil-Radhika friendship…anyone would be…But he should fear someone else…How will Arjun tolerate his best friend’s bond with his love …Sam is dreaming of Arjun…but she doesn’t want to let go Neil…and Arjun…he just wants his dancing swan…even without looking at her face…but he was not aware that this dancing swan was not a simple meek girl…but a headstrong …witty girl who will go any length for Neil and Sam…and Radhika miss practical, she does not believe in Love at first sight…but she was herself the victim of it as Arjun had already lost his heart just by watching the video…he was hunting his dancing swan…and he won’t stop till he finds her!!!
