Hello my dearies …so here is Chap 6…please do let me how was it…also thank you so much for the amazing support till date. Happy reading 🙂
When people don’t value me I enjoy playing pranks on them…that pranks are the test I put you through…and then I pull you back to the right path…so Arjun was coming close to meet someone …who will compel him to change the course of his life
JFK Airport USA
As the announcement for landing was made on the JFK airport…Radhika quickly fastened her belt …she was all exited…it was a stepping stone of her dreams…this one year in NYU will help her enhance her resume….she always wanted to make a name for herself and this one year she will do that. After all the formalities she came out…took a cab for her temporary accommodation provided by the university…she had 15 days to find herself one.
Jai was irritated when Radhika refused his offer to accompany her to the airport…why didn’t she refuse Neil…why he had to be there with her always…even yesterday at the airport…he had gone there and stood at a distance to watch her…Neil again hugged her tight…why was his hand there on her waist…why didn’t she remove it…why Neil had to touch her face to say a simple bye …she was his only his…and Neil he always came in between…Neil claimed to love Sam..then why he always tried to keep him away from Radhika…Jai had decided after this one year he will make Radhika his forever…and this time he was least concern about anybody’s opinion.
Sam was packing her stuff …she was still sad…she wipe her nose every now and then…Samrat was watching this for long he came to her and gently tapped her
shoulder…’’Sam…it’s just an year…you guys will be together again.’’
Sam smiled …wiped her face and replied; ‘’I know dad…but when were in hostel …away from our family …we were family to each other…and it’s just not for Radhika…I am going away from all of you and will be seeing you after 6 months…I am going to miss you’’
Samrat hugged Sam…’’I don’t think so…you will have Neil around you and I know he won’t let you shed a single tear…you know that’’
Sam nodded then suddenly asked; ‘’Pa do you think something can happen between Neil and Radhika?…I mean they are exactly alike’’
Samrat laughed…after controlling he replied; ‘’Sam…have you ever seen any such thing in their eyes…no…and they are like each other’s mirror images…and you and
Radhika too share similar bond…but we never question your relationship…just because Neil is a guy ,don’t judge his pure bond with Radhika’’
Sam nodded; ‘’ I wish she says yes for bhai…I would dance with happiness’’
Samrat; ‘’All of us want that…but it should not be forced…we should respect her will too..Now finish your packing…I will speak to Neil’’
USA Arjun’s Apartment
Arjun was busy with his assignment…on Monday 3 months of mentor mentee program was about to start..and he would be assigned and Bachelors student to mentor …he wanted his mentee to be the best one…he never lost and he didn’t wanted to lose here too… Arjun finished his assignment and made a video call to Nandini she answered immediately; ‘’How are you my little brother’’
Arjun; ‘’I am no more little Nandu…I am a man now’’
Nanadini smiled; ‘’Yes ….I know you are Man enough to give us little ones… now…what say… should I start looking for girls’’
Arjun with little humour; ‘’ Not girls…just find one …the dancing swan I am looking for…I promise you a little Arjun in a year’’
Nandini all wide eyed; ‘’Shut up shameless!!!… you still are thinking about her…I thought you must have forgotten her’’
Arjun; ‘’Yes I am still thinking about her…because you and Neil are hiding her…. don’t know its kind of strange…not able to get her out of my head …but once I meet her…may be she will go out of my brain’’
Nandini was sad now; ‘’Arjun…just listen this one thing…if you ever meet her and you feel she is someone nice and to be cared for…then respect her…never do a thing which will break her heart..’’
Arjun; ‘’Nandu …I have never mistreated an innocent or a good girl…but I don’t refuse, if a girl willingly falls on me…and if my swan is a good girl…trust me I will keep her safe from everyone…even from myself…now smile’’
Nandini smiled…she knew Arjun will keep his word….’’Oh I forgot to tell you Neil is going to Singapore for a 6 months course…’’
Arjun ; ‘’Singapore??? Why not US’’
Nandini; ‘’Because Sam has got Singapore University through the exchange program’’
Arjun; ‘’Seriously…this guy is mad…and that stupid girl…keeps on flirting with me over the messages…I feel bad for him…any girl would go on her knees to be with Neil…but he is running after a girl who doesn’t know his worth…’’
Nandini; ‘’One day she will realize his worth…time spares no one’’
Arjun; ‘’Good for her if she does…because if she hurts him …I will not wait for time to punish her I will do it myself’’
Nandini; ‘’Calm down boy…by the way I am joining Bird Song again’’
Arjun; ‘’That ‘s awesome Nandu…and make Samrat’s life hell’’
Nandini laughed…and wished him luck for the week…disconnected the call…she thought…’you wouldn’t understand baby…punishing someone you love is equivalent to punishing yourself’
Arjun called someone ; ‘’Need to find a girl…I am messaging you a video and some details…but no one should know about it…not even Nandu’’ . Arjun smiled ‘’you will be mine…very soon’’
Neil’s house Mumbai India
Neil was done with his packing…he was explaining his Mom all she needed to mange Bird Song and RHYTHM together…he had been doing this for a week…he had even mailed her the pointers and pasted a printout on her desk…Neil was going on and on finally Prema covered his mouth with her hand; ‘’Enough Neil…I have been doing this for years…now just relax and enjoy these 6 months…you have been a very good son…and you will always be reachable on calls and emails…now chill’’
Neil sat on knees and kept his head on his mom’s lap; ‘’Mom I am going to miss you…just take care of yourself’’
Prerna; ‘’I will get up now its time for you to leave…Sam must be waiting…and I have Mala ,Piyali to take care of me’’
Neil packed and left for airport…Once he reached there he found Sam with her family waiting for him…he met everyone..but found Jai very cold to him…Neil ignored because he knew the reason…Sam cried like hell hugging Samrat…she wished Piyali and Jai and went inside with Neil…for the first time Piyali felt the distance between her and Sam…she wanted to bridge this gap badly.
US – Radhika’s first day
This was the 3rd time that alarm went on…Radhika lazily looked at the watch it was 9:00 Am and she had to be in campus by 10:00 AM…she jumped out quickly dressed up in a faded jeans white shirt and a denim jacket….she picked her bag and rushed to the bus stop…she opened the map…scratched her head and then smiled as a brilliant idea struck her mind….Radhika saw a bike coming she made a panic stricken face and jumped in front of it in a pleading gesture…the man behind the helmet looked at her and applied brakes; ‘’easy girl…u want to get yourself killed’’
Radhika with tears and fake hiccups; ‘’Please help me …please…its an emergency…can …oh my god ! can you give me a lift to my destination’’
The biker gave one look to panic girl infornt of him…he felt he knew her his heart skipped a beat …he smiled thinking she was cute an if he helped her today…he can take her out someday…he spoke; ‘’quickly sit’’
Radhika; ‘’May God bless you…’’ she quickly sprang behind him and switched on the navigator on her phone…she kept her panic voice while telling the directions to the rider…he was little confused about her destination but he went on as she really sounded all worn out…as they finally reached… Radhika got down…all her panic expressions gone …she looked at him..the guy still had the helmet on…he was curious to know the emergency….
Radhika; ‘’Thank you and sorry…I cooked up the story to reach here `,it’s my first day…and I was late thanks again’’ she turned her heels to leave…but stopped after hearing his voice; ‘’Wait up’’ Radhika turned to face him …Arjun was angry now…a 5 feet 3 inches girl had made a fool out of him…he kept his helmet on the bike and prowled towards her…but she was unfazed…people around who knew him… stood quietly to see who had angered him now…He caught hold of her arm and pulled hard; ‘’Do you even know who I am…’’ Radhika now frowned she gave one look to his grip on her arm and replied in a strong voice ; ‘’2 minutes back ..I thought you are someone good…but now you appear to be a total brat’’
Arjun stared at her…she wasn’t scared a bit; ‘’How dare you use me…’’
Radhika; ‘’Use??? What are you…a tissue ….and I guess I said sorry and Thank you both…I didn’t put a dagger through your heart that you are so annoyed…and leave my hand…NOW’’
Arjun whispered angrily; ‘’what if I don’t leave’’
Radhika smirked; ‘’I will kick you manhood hard…and you will be on your knees…then everyone around will get a new introduction of yours as a complete jerk…before messing with me do think about yourself too’’
Arjun was surprised at her confidence…but he didn’t show it on his face…’’you will pay for this..’’
Radhika ; ‘’We will see…you don’t scare me’’ Radhika kicked her heels turned around and left…Arjun moved his fingers through his hair in frustration…he was being fooled…nobody ever dared that..but this tiny girl did it so easily and above that she wasn’t scared. A girl standing nearby was watching the drama …she smiles broadly at Arjun’s frustration and thinks; ‘’I like you girl’’
Radhika quickly moved towards the admission office to complete the necessary formalities….she walked towards the accommodation desk to check if she can get a dorm or room…it would be best place to stay…as she can be close to the campus…an old lady at the desk looked at her and responded; ‘’Sorry dear mostly all dorms are occupied and you are an exchange student…it would be difficult but if some agrees to share… you can move in’’ Radhika smiled and thanked her…she thought she hardly knew anyone…why would some share their room with her…Radhika was still in a deep thought when someone called her; ‘’Hey you…stop’’ Radhika turned around…she saw a tall thin fair beautiful girl with light brown hair walking towards her…she extended her hand; ‘’Hi there..I am Anna’’
Radhika took her hand; ‘’Radhika..’’
Anna; ‘’I am a masters student …journalism…you can share my dorm’’
Radhika; ‘’thanks …but you hardly know me…why are you offering me your dorm to share and why should I trust you?’’
Anna smiled …; ‘’ do the background check with the staff and the reason why I offered you my dorm is that I saw you messing with that dude near the Business Administration building…you have guts…I like that…now come I will get the things moving’’ Radhika little surprised looked at the sky thanking the almighty for his magical help.
Anna informed the office that Radhika will be sharing her dorm…they did the formalities…and moved out of office; ‘’Where are you putting up right now’’
Radhika; ‘’The temporary accommodation..it’s a guest house ‘’
Anna; ‘’Ok give me your no….I will take you there in the evening and we can bring your things here…cool with that’’
Radhika; ‘’sounds good…thanks Anna’’ Radhika finished her classes…in her last class they were being informed about the mentor-mentee program, final year masters students will mentor final year bachelors students …for 3 months they had to work together on all the assignments and live projects as a team…the list was up on the bulletin board…Radhika informed Anna about it …Anna asked her to come out once she is done with the list…Radhika checked the name against her it was Steve Thomas….she saved his contact displayed there and moved out to meet Anna. Arjun went to check the name of the mentee assigned to him…it was some guy by the name Reylonds…Arjun was satisfied it was a boy…because girls would stare at him more and work less. Steve found it difficult to pronounce the name written on the board…Arjun smiled and did that for him…’’Radhika Mishra…Indian…come lets go…we will meet them tomorrow’’
Arjun started his bike ….but something caught his eyes…the girl who made a fool out of him…was standing with Anna…she was happily giggling and smiling…Arjun observed her from head to toe…lean body… long hairs…flawless skin…lips like rose petals and….yes how can he forget the brown eyes that fooled him this morning…but why did she feel so familiar…why his heart was beating so hard…did he knew her…he brushed aside his thoughts…Anna was Arjun’s friend…good… now he will get his revenge.
Anna noticed Arjun staring Radhika angrily… she gestured Radhika to turn…Radhika turned and matched Arjun’s angry glare with her confident one…she turned away her eyes showing she was least bothered about him…Radhika drove off with Anna…Girls showered their attention on Arjun…and even he was used to it but this one…was different…she fuelled his anger…interest and now he was determined to make her bow down.
So I played my role well Beauty met the Beast…and she irritated him…we will see how he gets his revenge or learns a new lesson. Neil is off to live the best or worst 6 months of his life…what will happen when Sam’s crush will fall madly in love with her best friend…and how will beast handle R-neil friendship…and Jai’s obsession.
