I washed my face and stepped out of the washroom, entered my class and avoided everyone in my class got to my seat and put my head down. I was still remembering what happened! I tear again without my permission came out and fell on my desk. After some time the break was over. The rest of the day I was just sitting dull in my class and my friends were really confused with my behaviour but who cares? Finally the bell rang and the college got over. I was again walking on the road with only the same flashback, he hugged a girl! Again, once again I was pulled aside by someone, I knew it would be him again. And yes I was right, it was Shravan. Again the same thing he fell over me saving me from a bus. I looked at him with pain and a drop of tear came out from my eyes and my face became moist again! All my make had been removed because of my tears, I never wanted to come in front of him like this, without make up and a dull face! He finally moved his hand and wiped my tear, he was looking at me with pain. I again remembered him hugging so I quickly got up said a dull Thanks and started moving ahead finding a rickshaw for myself. He called out my name but I didn’t pay heed, he ran behind me and held my hand and pulled me closer. I could once again feel his warm breath. We were just lost in each other’s eyes, we both were in pain. I tried to free my hand but he held it more tight. I screamed in pain ahh…
“Its hurting me, leave my hand please” I said withering in pain. But he again tightened his grip and pulled me even closer. “It hurts me also.” He said, “Why are you here? Where’s your girlfriend?” I asked directly, “What? Girlfriend? I don’t have any” he replied.”Don’t lie! I saw you hugging her, just leave it” I said finally freeing my hand and ran away from there and luckily got a rickshaw. I sat inside crying, he tried following me but he could not catch up to the speed of my rickshaw.
A week passed by and we didn’t talk to each other. He followed me daily when I was returning home, he tried talking to me many times but I never let him talk. I started avoiding him! Avoiding my love! I loved him very much but…
I was sitting in my class and a notice came that tomorrow in the party of our college, the colour theme was black. Yes, party! Our college was ranked number 1 in our state! I was in no mood to go to that party but I simply had to because I had to give a speech there. The welcome speech! I was very well prepared with my content now, I don’t know why I was chosen for this speech!
I got up again with that same boring feeling, I woke up half heartedly. I took a bath and wore my black short one piece which was just a few inches above my knees. Again I had to get ready today which irritated me the most! I was really in no mood but I had to! I applied my lip gloss and a dark shade of pink lipstick. I applied compact on my cheeks, kajal, eye liner and mascara. I tied my hair in a bun letting out some strands of my hair out which were falling on my face. And I was done! I wore my black stilettos which perfectly matched my outfit. I took my purse and ran out of my room.
“Di.. you are looking very pretty, I am sure today Shravan jiju will go flat!” I smiled at her and took a rickshaw again. You must be wondering why did she say that? Actually I didn’t tell her about Shravan’s girlfriend, I just made up a story that we were just friends. I didn’t want to tell her the truth and make her upset. I reached my college which was decorated beautifully. I entered the hall and gathered everyone’s attention, especially the boys who never ever looked at me but today they were staring at me. I laughed at my luck! I thought only the beauty matters to the people in this world! And maybe that girl was more beautiful than me who Shravan was with. I turned around searching for him and finally I found him chatting with some of his friends and smiling. That smile after all… I walked upto the stage when almost everyone had come. I started,
Hello everyone, welcome to the party, congratulations to each one of you for making this college come to the first position in the state… and I continued, and as I turned to see him, I saw that he was just staring at me with love. I turned my gaze and continued but again I was attracted towards him, he was in black suit looking handsome more than ever. He was just staring at me, I was now losing myself, my eyes were welled up with tears ready to flow anytime! But I controlled them as I didn’t want to let it out in front of everyone. I finally finished and everyone clapped for me, I smiled at got down. I was walking with tears coming out as I seriously couldn’t control them. He controlled my tears. I went towards the washroom to wipe my tears otherwise it would spoil my make up. I didn’t care about that but still I couldn’t go in front of everyone like that. I reached the washroom but I could not enter inside as I was again pulled by someone and I knew it was him. I looked at him with pain and the tears continuously flowing down. He wiped my tears and nodded as in saying not to cry. He cupped my face and came closer to me and was about to kiss my forehead when I moved back. “Please don’t do this to me! You have already hurt me a lot” I said in pain. “And what about you? You have also hurt me a lot” he said. I couldn’t understand why was he hurt?! “You hurt me and now.. leave it” I said and turned to go back to the hall when he again pulled me and now held my wrist tightly behind my back. I winced in pain. He moved closer to me and I couldn’t stop him, I had finally allowed him to take over me. I couldn’t resist. He pinned me to the wall and said “The girl whom I hugged wasn’t my girlfriend! She is my younger sister who studies in the nearby college. I had forgotten to take my tiffin that day and that’s why she had come to give it to me! And I thanked her for that, and that hug was quite natural! Do you get it? Or you need any more explanation?!”
I was shocked, I had misunderstood him, tears were flowing again from my eyes. I said “I’m sorry.. I misunderstood you.” He wiped my tears carefully so that he doesn’t disturb my makeup. I continued “Actually I am disliked by everyone in this world except my parents and my sister. No one likes me, they say I’m dull, boring and there’s no meaning of my life. I don’t even have good friends or any friend!but that day when I met you, you behaved with me so nicely, laughed with me, shared your life with me and I enjoyed it a lot for the first time. For the first time I felt that no I’m not so boring. And for the first time I was so excited to go to college just because I could meet you there! But then I saw you with her, I mean your sister and I was shattered. I felt that you also don’t like me. And.. I cried my heart out! I poured out everything in front of him and I noticed tears in his eyes. He hugged me tightly and said “I’m sorry for hurting you” I cried under his strong chest, and it comforted me the most. We broke our hug and he cupped my face wiping all the tears and kissed my forehead. I felt as if I was blessed to have him. Our hearts knew how much we loved each other. My cheeks turned light shade of pink as he kissed me. I quickly captured his rough lips and he reciprocated as well. The kiss was full of passion, pain, and most importantly LOVE! We parted due to the lack of oxygen. I turned red looking at him and quickly buried my face under his chest. Some time later we entwined our hands and walked inside the hall. Our love was unsaid! Neither did he say nor did I but we knew that we loved each other. And yes I found the meaning of my life! SHRAVAN!
