I reached home at 12. I presumed that Kabir must be asleep. The whole day had been so awesome. Yeah, I was angry at Kabir at the beginning, but later I began enjoying it. I really wanted Kabir to do something romantic. And he did. I inserted the key in the keyhole and opened the door. Everything inside was dark. I entered and silently closed the door from behind. Soon, 2 hologram figures were talking to each other. I strained my eyes to see it clearly. I recognized the figures to be my mom and dad!! Dad said, ‘Ananya is really special to me. She is 6 years old but still I can see the signs of bravery in her. I am sure I won’t be able to see Ananya’s marriage, but I am 100% sure that she will get a very supportive and submissive husband’. Next flashed the scene where Kabir and I clashed for the first time when he entered kkn. All these holograms and scenes were being flashed through the projector. Kabir said, ‘Khalid, it is indeed strange that you have hired a reporters who have articulation problems’. Next scene came where I was standing in Kabir’s cabin, the day when he asked me to prove why he should have me back as a reporter. Kabir smiled and said, ‘Good work’. Another scene came when I and Kabir shook hands, that marked our first sign of friendship. I was smiling, with tears in my eyes as I watched the scenes flashing before me. The next scene came where I and Ronnie hugged each other in the lobby where I announced that I am leaving for Mumbai.
Another scene came where I and Kabir were standing in kkn office, facing each other when he proposed me. Those words, “It’s not easy for me to break those walls that I have built around me. That man who hasn’t ever trusted anyone wants to make you believe that.. I love you. I really really love you. I want you to be my face, my pride’. Now that scene literally made me cry. I hid back my tears and continued watching. And the next scene came was when I and Kabir hugged, more passionately, with tears welled up in my eyes,the day he proved his true love for me. And the projector stopped flashing. Lights came on. I saw Kabir who had already knelt to the ground, holding his ears as if to say sorry. I rushed towards him and said, ‘This was the best surprise in my entire life Kabir’. Kabir got up and wiped my tears, and soon I was engulfed in a warm hug. I don’t remember how that night ended, but the feeling of being perfect once again flushed inside me. Perfect, not in the sense in my job, but more rather my perfect life!!
