Hello! Long time since I’d last posted, eh? Yeah, you got that right. Now, let me tell you that things have been getting really tough for me these days; school, studies, classes, birthday and now my dad’s health. Currently, my dad is admitted in the hospital since he’s just had a surgery. I’ve hardly been able to get any sleep, so I decided I’d write a bit of this. Initially, I thought of ending this FF, but giving it an abrupt and sudden ending wouldn’t be fair from my side, would it? I guess not. So, I’ve decided that I’ll continue posting, if you want me to do so, provided that the posts are short, alright? Kindly do let me know your opinions through your comments.
Coming to today’s chapter, we start from where the journey to Shimla has come to and end and now, the students have reached the hotel they shall be staying in.
Do drop in your comments after reading. I’d love to hear from all of you.
(Sonakshi’s POV starts)
“Sonakshi, aren’t you excited?”
“Yes, Dev, I am,” I replied dully.
“Like, this is going to be so fun!” he exclaimed with utmost excitement.
“Yeah, yeah,” I said. Now, I swear I was getting really bored of Dev and his over-excitement. He really could be so irritating, and so he was. I left out a soft giggle to myself as I looked at him. This was the man I loved. Like, seriously?
We walked straight up to the hotel we were going to stay in and soon, me and Elina were given the keys of the room we’d be sharing. Most people were put in twos, while some in three. However, the teachers made sure that they didn’t have a girl and boy together in the room, for it would rather be a bit too dangerous. Dev and Vicky were sharing a room as well. We four had our rooms on the same floor. In fact, our rooms were right in front of each other’s.
While both Vicky and Elina unlocked the doors to their respective rooms, Dev and I stood there, plainly doing nothing. Then, when Elina and Vicky entered the room, leaving me and Dev behind, Dev suddenly pulled me close to him, our faces inches apart. We both stared into each other’s eyes and for now, all we could feel was our unconditional love and care for each other, although neither of us were aware of the other’s feelings.
“Dev, let go of me,” I whispered softly.
“Why? Don’t tell me you’re blushing,” he remarked.
“Of course, I am not. What makes you think like that?” I ordered.
“Well, partly because I can see the girl in front of me turning crimson, and partly because…” He broke off as he looked into my eyes and smirked. Man, this man was literally killing me.
“And partly because of what?” I demanded impatiently. I was really getting impatient now.
“Dev! Hurry up now.”
“And partly because…I know,” he replied casually.
For him, it might’ve been a causal remark, but for me, it was one statement that made me go bonkers. My mind started racing as I thought of the various things Dev could’ve learnt about. Was it anything to do about my period? Or that how afraid I was of the dark? Gosh! I was dead. But worst of all, what if he got to know that? What if he got know that I liked him? What if he somehow learnt that I loved him? Shit man.
Gathering up all the courage I had, I spoke, “What do you know?”
“I know something you wouldn’t have ever told me,” he replied.
“Dev, please,” I insisted.
“You really want to know, Sona?”
“Of course, I do!” I replied.
“Well, the think I know is how desperately you want to kiss me,” he said as he moved even closer to me. By this time, I could feel the heat of his breath on my face and he too must be feeling the same. Any more closeness between us, and I swear our lips would meet.
Now, come to think of Dev had just said, what did he mean? Like, did he really mean it? I mean, yes, of course, I do want to kiss him so badly, but how in the world does he know? Elina couldn’t have possibly told him, could she? No. Not when she doesn’t have the slightest of clue about my feelings for Dev herself. Then, who else could it have been. Nobody in this universe has, so far, come across the fact that I love Dev. Once again, my mind started racing and now, I could actually feel the heat rising up my face and upon looking at our closeness, I bet Dev was currently seeing my face flush with bright colour. Man, this guy is so smart that it’s so wicked!
Finally, once I could thing of something appropriate to say, I opened my mouth and stammered, “What makes you think that I’d want to kiss you, Dev Dixit?”
“What makes me think that, huh? Well, it’s probably because you keep on staring at me all the time, you know. Like, you couldn’t get your eyes off me during our journey till this place, could you?” he questioned smartly. By now, I knew that I was trapped. But poor Dev, perhaps he didn’t know how clever I really was. I was going together out of this trap. I had to.
“For once, Dev, please don’t cook up such stories, alright?” I said confidently.
“Me and cooking? Nah.”
“Dev, listen carefully, alright? Whatever you think is absolutely wrong, okay? Really.”
“Oh. Does that mean you think I am not hot?”
“No way! You’re like the hottest guy I’ve ever- no, of course, you aren’t that hot,” I said. I, for the first time, had been absolutely stupid and had invited myself some good trouble to deal with. I nearly called Dev the ‘hottest’ guy I’ve ever met; how could I do that? I better keep control of my tongue, I suppose.
“Sonakshi, look, I won’t bother you much now. I suppose all of us are very tired after the journey and I’d rather think we ‘ought to rest, fine?” he said. As he said so, I hastily nodded. I really did want to run away from him right now, for I could feel my cheeks burning as I heavily blushed. Shit, again. “And,” he continued, “don’t you end up thinking that I’m going to spare you. I know it all. Yes, I do. You calling me the hottest guy you’ve ever met is not normal, you know? I do know, at least. Anyways, good night!” he said as he left off to his room after kissing me on my forehead.
Wait. What did he just do? He kissed me, didn’t he? Like, he seriously kissed me? Yay! No, no. No! Dev Dixit, the man I die for, just kissed me! But, that was a friendly one, wasn’t it? It surely was. Or that’s what I think.
Putting a rest to my thoughts and getting rest to my own good self now, I entered the room to find Elina already asleep on the bed. I simply couldn’t imagine how the two love birds, Vicky and Elina, had just stayed away from each other for so long. I laughed to myself as I too went on the other side of the bed to have a good sleep. And, to let my mind soar through my dreams.
(Sonakshi’s POV ends)
The hearts are closer, the bodies are closer and so are the lips. But what about the fates of these two people who have such high dreams? Will Sonakshi be able to overcome her fear of losing her career while she gets Dev? Will she be able to have both of her greatest desires at once? And, what about Rahul, then? Will he even let Sonakshi get Dev? Point to ponder upon, that is. Will these two hearts and bodies be able to come together to make on soul?
