Heyya Guys, so this is supposed to be my last post for 2017, I don’t know though whether TU will post it soon enough for it to qualify as one. Great year to you guys ahead. Happy New Year❤
Ragini is walking towards Lakshya, a single rose in her hand. His back is to her and she is nervous, anticipating the moment she would open her heart to him.
Lakshya hears her footsteps and turns around. His smile broadens on seeing her. “Ae PSL! Man, you are just the one I wanted to see right now. You know what? I went to see Kavya today. We sorted it out amongst us. I am so glad, I was worried I was always thinking about the way we ended things…….”
Ragini’s smile falters. The light single rose in her hand suddenly feels like a ton of bricks, too heavy to hold. She tries to crush it in her hand, only to realise that she couldn’t hurt the one thing she had hoped to give to her love. Yes, love. The more she had thought about her feelings, the more she had realised that her feelings for him were deeper than a mere infatuation, like with Sanskaar. It was love, pure and simple. A transition from friendship to…………. unrequited love.
She closes her eyes to hide the tears threatening to spill out as she hears him talk about how his meeting with Kavya went. As he is speaking, his eyes fall on the rose in her hand.
“Is that a rose PSL? Why are you carrying a rose? Is that for me” he asks with a wink.
Ragini pales and trys to deny it but she knows it is futile. However she is adamant on one thing. She wouldn’t lose her friendship over her feelings. She decides to hide the fact that it was for him.
“No. It isn’t.”
“I….I got it from someone.”
Lakshya’s broad smile falters a bit. He frowns playfully. “Who gave it to you? Some secret admirer?”
Had Ragini been in her normal state, she would have detected the slight jealousy and irritation in the otherwise warm voice of Lakshya. However she was too heartbroken and busy in hiding her emotions to pay notice.
“Uhm. Yeah. Sort of. We were in college together and still text each other frequently. My friends used to say that he was crushing on me since Day 1.”
“So he gave you a rose and you took it? Shall I congratulate you on something?”
“No no. He just….well, he did buy it for me. But we haven’t reached any understanding. Yet.” Ragini adds as an afterthought to avoid any further questions. She is looking down. Had she been looking at Lakshya, she would have seen his eyes darken.
“Oh well, good for you. So, what’s up these days, PSL?”
“Nothing much. Dad is planning to send me to the London branch of our company for learning the overseas part.”
“WHAT?! London? Man, that’s sudden. I….I didn’t know. Uhm, how long would you be there for?”
Ragini tries to hold back her tears. “No idea.”
And suddenly, nothing seems right anymore. She sees her world crashing right in front of her eyes, piece by piece, as Lakshya makes an excuse and leaves………………
Oh well, BKG next. Then Cocktail ❤. And a very very Happy New Year❤❤❤
