THE AUTHOR’S LOVE!!!
Hello everyone! I’m back with not a oneshot but a short story this time, I hope you will be liking this one, just like you have loved all my other works.
So here’s the prologue of the story, and let me know if I should continue it further or not.
“Sanskaar, what do you think of Swara?” Laksh asked his best friend.
“What kind of a question is that Lucky?” Sanskaar responded to his question, but with another question.
“Just answer me!” Laksh acted stubbsorn. Well Laksh was a stubborn person, when he wanted things to go his way.
“Umm… she has a charming personality, sweet by nature, a little fiesty and tough to handle, but that’s what makes her unique. She is different from all the other girls I’ve known, all in all she is a perfect girl!” He replied, a smile making its way on his face as he talked about her.
Laksh gave him a knowing smile, and patted his back, “I guess you’ve taken a liking for her! And, I also think she’s perfect for you!”
Sanskaar was shocked at the relevation; may be he did like Swara, but not as what his friend was intending to say. If there was something more, surely he’d have known, wouldn’t he?
“You are mistaken!” He tried to clarify Laksh, who was already in a mood to pair up his best friend, with that one girl who deserved a gem like him.
“Sanskaar, I’m not forcing you to accept something what you don’t feel like, but just think about my words.”
“Look Lucky, there’s nothing like what your are thinking it to be, or even if there is a chance that I like her, you know she’d never accept to this! She doesn’t believe in love or marriage or whatever long-term relationship!” He was pretty positive about what her answer would be, if she was ever asked this question!
Laksh gave him a slight nod, knowing what Sanskaar said was completely true. Sanskaar turned to leave, when Laksh wondered about if there was any possibility of the two of them being together.
Sanskaar paused, after walking for a distance, and spoke, his voice cold and face without any expression, “And moreover, I’m never lucky enough to have the people I love, around me. Love is just not meant for me!” With that, he walked away, leaving Laksh behind.
Laksh looked at his retreating form, and let out a sigh. It wasn’t that Sanskaar doesn’t believe in love, but it’s just that he thinks it is not meant for him. Sanskaar, of all people, deserved the best in life, but his life was giving him the worst challenges to face. Yet, he still hadn’t lost the hope. There were times, when he might feel let down, but in the end, he still has that small ray of hope left!!!
“C’mon Ragini! How many times do I have to tell you that I don’t believe in love or in the fact that there will ever be a happy ending with no tough times in our life.” Swara replied her best friend when asked about love.
“Swara, why do you keep saying that? You might be happy, you never know what the future holds in store for you.” Ragini explained.
“Exactly Ragini! That is what I’m saying. The happy endings we read in books are limited to only books! But in reality, all you get is heartbreaks and adjustments in life.” Swara argued back.
Ragini let out a sigh, knowing that it would be useless to talk to her best friend. Swara was one girl, who would stick to her opinions, no matter what you say. It was tough, to get her to change her opinion on any matter. And the topic of love was something similar.
It was not Swara’s fault that she doesn’t believe in happily ever after stuff, sometimes certain circumstances make people the way they are. Ragini could very well understand, why Swara reacted too much when she told her about Laksh. Swara was lively and full of joy when she was with her friends, but the topic of love irks her. But, what she doesn’t know is that there’s one happily ever after, meant for her!!!
So guys, this is the prologue of my new short story! Two different characters – one believes in love but thinks that it is not meant for him; and the other doesn’t believe that happily ever after exists in real life, inshort she doesn’t believe in love. What brings the two of them together, and how does it change their opinions? You will be finding about this in the coming chapters!
This story will have a maximum of 8-10 chapters, and I will be uploading it provided, I get a good response for this chapter. Otherwise, this will be the end to this story! Please comment and let me know if I should continue.
P.S. I can’t promise on giving regular updates!
Thank you! <3
