I’m sorry for this short episode. Its actually the second update I’m posting. And a happy Gudi Padwa !!
Flawless… She was just flawless…
I couldn’t help but admire every feature of hers as she slept peacefully in my arms. After what seemed like a very long time, I felt complete. The feeling of emptiness was gone, the moment she had fallen asleep in my arms.
She looked fragile, but I knew how tough she was from inside. She was a fighter, and was brave enough to stay strong through everything. There were no traces of pain, worries or fear on her face when she was asleep.
“Everything is going to be okay. Just like how it used to be. I won’t let you suffer anymore, Swara….” I said, rubbing circles on the back of her hand.
The whole room was quiet, but suddenly, my phone rang loudly, startling me.
I looked for it around but couldn’t find it. I noticed Swara getting uncomfortable due to the noise. Damn you, phone. Always rings when I can’t pick up…
Finally, after some efforts, I found the phone lying under the covers. I sighed with relied. Laksh calling….kept flashing on the screen.
I answered. “What is it?” I asked, trying to keep my volume as low as possible. Thankfully, Swara had fallen back asleep. I patted her head and removed the strands of her hair which fell on her face.
“Where are you? We’ve to meet. Right now.” He said, emphasizing ‘right now’.
“I can’t…um… I’m… somewhere. Why, what’s up?” I asked.
“I can’t tell you on the phone, Sanskar. It’s really urgent.” He said, a little impatiently.
“Leave Swara alone for sometime, and meet me. Now.” He added.
I rolled my eyes thinking how well he knew me. He was aware that I was with Swara, and now, I had to go to see him for whatever reason. Apart from that, he sounded worried.
“Okay. I’ll be there in like…twenty minutes, yeah?”
“Okay hurry up.” He said and hung up without even saying a goodbye.
He never did that, unless something was really disturbing him. I could easily make out from his tone that something was up…but what?
I took a look at the beautiful girl, asleep in my arms.
“I’ll be back soon.” I said, planting a kiss on the top of her head. Carefully, I placed her on the bed, tucking her in, and walked out.
I wondered what came up so urgently…
“I need to tell him, I need to tell him at any cost…”
I kept saying that to myself. But I had no idea what the consequences were going to be. I knew how angry he was going to be, after hearing the truth, but it was important for him to know.
I paces around the room impatiently, waiting for Sanskar to come. Ragini, who was sitting on the sofa, tapping her foot on the floor continuously, was in the same condition as me.
Twenty minutes…and there was a knock on the door. I opened up to see Sanskar – tired and sleepy.
“Hi, is everything okay?” He asked.
“No.” I said and shook my head. “Come in.”
He gave me a curious looks and walked in. “What is it?” He asked.
I looked over to Ragini for help, bur she just shrugged. “What is going on?” He asked again, more impatient this time.
I sighed. “There’s something you need to know.”
“Okay. Go on.”
I can’t do this. . .
I took a long pause, and I could sense the tension in the room. Ragini looked like she had seen a ghost, while Sanskar looked really curious and impatient.
“Lucky, what’s wrong?” He asked.
I ignored all the thoughts that were currently crossing my mind. I did not think about the consequences. I did not think about how Sanskar would feel, for I knew he would be pissed off.
“Lucky, are you okay? Ragini? Say something, you guys. . .”
I didn’t even realize that Ragini had walked upto me, and was now standing beside me.
“Tell him, baby…” She said, locking her fingers with mine.
I closed my eyes and took a deep breath.
Here goes nothing. . .
“Ishaan tried to kill Swara. . .”
Ur reaction? All are invited for Ishaan’s funeral ;P
