Hello everyone..thank you so much for the comments on the previous chapter.. They mean a lot to me.. I will not be able to finish my ff till 1st.. Last 5 chapters are now on way..! So show your full support.. This chapter has ‘something’ if you get it. Otherwise it may not interest you.. Here it comes..
About the questions, I guess I have that sides’ theory coming to my rescue again. Okay, so I feel there’s a side of me that loves him and there’s a side that refuses to believe so. Complications huh? Life’s nothing without them.
I start executing my plan. You know, I always used to give him books. He always wanted the books I read. So I guess the books would help me a bit now.
I guess I need to catch up with him. I mean, I need to force him one more time to talk to me. But this time there’s a purpose I am doing it. Its to fulfil my necessity not the hunger. But before that there’s someone else I would love to talk to. My bestie. She is not a part of all the complications in my life but she is there for me.
So I call her.
” Yeah tell what happened.” She picks up the phone saying this. I know she is having that expression on her face which tells that she knows what’s coming.
” Is this a way to pick up a call? No hello hi?” I say annoyed.
” You want to talk?” She sounds bored.
” Huh!! You are too much you know. Anyway meet me in the eve.” I say.
” Okay. I will tell adi. He has been asking me for a long time. Its okay with you right?” She now sounds concerned.
” Yeah okay. So after the classes?” I ask.
” Done!” She says and cuts the call.
Me and adi are normal now. At least we pretend to be. Ananya has been close to him for quiet a time now. Although she won’t accept, I think she has got some feelings for him. She will slap me if I say so to her. Meanwhile, Adi is busy with his girls. He has got a girlfriend I guess? Yeah. I am happy for him. But I want him to choose someone good. Not anyone. I want him to be happy, genuinely happy.
I am back in my hostel room after some fun time with my friends. Mr. Malhotra passed by while we were sitting and talking. As usual. No expression. Nothing on the face. I don’t know about him but I know this about me. Now days I start getting restless seeing him. I want to get away from his sight. Something’s happening and I fear what’s coming. I put my headphones and crawl into my bed. Its dark. And maybe a bit cold too. I pull up my blanket. I love winters. Its my favourite. I feel sleepy now. I remove my headphones and get lost in the darkness only I know.
I get out of the darkness and bright sunlight penetrates my eyes. I jog to my hostel and find my friends near the stairs. I start talking to them when I suddenly see him approaching me. Although his figure is blurred, I know it’s him. He keeps coming towards me and I realise he grows bigger and bigger as he nears me. Finally he fills my blurred vision. I wake up to find the real sunlight coming through my window.
Dream again. Huh!
And I wonder if my fear would turn true?
I am starting to fear, that these dreams would soon become nightmares and the man I loved would be the one I would never want to see.
