When I had asked Rishabh to tell me about his reason of hatred towards his brother, he had hold my hand and made me sit on the edge of the bed and knelt himself in the floor facing me.
His hands were still on mine keeping me warm.
I was tensed. What will now roll out of his tongue can be really secretive, or something very personal. What if he later regrets telling me?
The way his eyes were looking at me, I knew he was reading me like the open book I was.
“It’s not my place to tell you this Vidhi.”
I was taken aback. What did he meant? I mean, I was not actually waiting to hear this.
“What do you mean?” I spoke my mind.
“I cannot tell you the reason behind our bitter relation. If I tell you, it’d be my point of view. And it won’t be justice to Rehan. There are things which you will know when the time is right. Do you get me?”
“I know what you are going through. Since you came here, I’ve always been a pain in your ass. Isn’t it?” he chuckled humourlessly.
“I believe the time has not yet come to reveal you my past. It’s not that I don’t want to tell. But if you know, I’ll be worried for you every second of the day.”
“I don’t understand.” I complained. Why was he making it sound so complicated? He could just tell me and make it clear. That’s really simple unless the past it too hurting.
He stood up and stared me.
“Curiosity kills the cat sweetheart. You better control that.”
“I’ll now take a shower. You make yourself comfortable.”
He was back to his old self again.
It’s uselss to ask an ice cube why it’s so cold?
I scrunched up my face and glared him hard on his back.
His sweetness is just the thin-thinnest of layer that too present for a millisecond . It will beat the volatility of my nail paint remover, I can swear.
I do get his point. Somethings are kept hidden for good. But God!for how long am I going to close my eyes and act like everything is alright when things happening around concerns me. Cause, I damn feel for him. And I don’t have a feature of switching on and off my feelings like him.
If he can’t tell me, then who can?
The ringing of phone snapped me out of my reverie. I bent to pick up his phone from the table.
It read Risha.
I was about to knock on the bathroom door when he came out half naked.
I should have closed my eyes, instead I took in his form.
His trouser was hanging low on his hip. Damn! The droplets of water made him look s*xier.
He chuckled and drew back the phone that was hanging on my palm.
“Stop drooling babe.”
He kept his forefinger on my lower jaw and shut it.
I didn’t even knew my mouth was open till now. I had even forgot to blink.
So embarassing Vidhi!
“Yes sister dear?” he greeted on the phone and soon laughed heartily at something.
Then did I realise, very lately though, that Risha had heard him when he said that.
“Yes.Yes, okay. I’ll reach in an hour.” and he hanged up.
I was scowling when he turned around . I was standing in an akimbo style with both my hands on my waist.
“You embarassed me on purpose!” I accused.
He feingned innocence. Raising his right eyebrow he asked “What are you talking about?”
“You intentionally told her I…. Huh?” I should better shut my mouth.
This is hell so embarassing.
Lord rescue me!
“What are you going to do about it love?” he mocked.
The nerve of this guy.
“You blo*dy don’t do that again Rishabh or I will kill you, I swear.” I threatened him and inhaled sharply.
He came forward and pinched my nose just like that.
“You are cute when angry.”
Rishabh had to attend a party his parents were throwing. He wanted me to come along but since Rehan would be present there as well, things got in my turn.
The thing is that I don’t feel comfortable in parties .
We were seated on the car when he leaned towards me and put a hand over my head pulling me close.
“Don’t put much pressure to your brain. You have to just think about me.” he winked and kissed my forehead.
That told me I was sulking inside thinking of the things I can’t know when he didn’t wanted me to.
I was so confident that I’ll today know the truth let whatever happens. And here I am waiting for the correct time.
No one can win over Rishabh.
The engine roared to life and he was already driving towards my hostel.
“Are you free tomorrow?” he asked giving a quick glance at me before concentrating back on the road.
I raised my brows questioningly.
“You never asked me that before.”
“Things are different now.” he pointed.
“Yeah. Like how you are trying to come out of your cold demeanour and act gentle and soft.” I spoke with mirth.
” If you want rough and hard, I am equally excited.”
My cheeks must be deep shade of red by now. He was so blunt. I swallowed in my embarrassment. I wanted to hide my face somewhere. Anywhere that keeps me away from his blunt use of words. God!
He actually said that. And heck, If I didn’t felt myself reacting.
His deep roar of laughter vibrated in the car.
We had reached the parking lot, where he was actually laughing at me. He will stare then laugh like he couldn’t believe that I turned beet root red few moments ago.
He was blunt. I wanted to remind him but bit back my tongue.
I just ignored him not totally though. From my peripheral view, I could see him controlling himself.
I opened the car door to leave when he grabbed my arm and turned me towards him.
Leaning forward he gave a light kiss on my forehead and kissed my lips hungrily. The butterflies erupted on my stomach and the words he said moments ago flashed.
He pulled my hair making me gasp. Taking it as a chance, he slid in his tongue making me moan shamelessly.
He pulled back suddenly and we both took in some air.
“Before I change my mind to abduct you, you should leave sweetheart.”
I could see that he was controlling himself.
“You act like a tennager high om hormones.” I couldn’t control myself saying that.
He laughed and countered back. “You are just too irresistible.”
I quickly opened the door and heard him say
“Take care love.”
And the car zoomed out.
