Baby let me hold you tonight……
Let me love you tonight.
It was a wonderful night yesterday.Watching Naira Slap Rithvik was like soo cool !! I had laughed all night remembering his face.
The next morning I had to discuss few business issues with Naksh. Therefore I had to go to singhania sadan. As I entered I saw naira packing something and akshara aunty sitting beside her.
“So how many more days are you here for Naira ?!!” Akshara aunty asked.
“A week. Actually not even a week. I m leaving this weekend.” Naira replied making my heart drop into the pit of my stomach. One moment I was happy to see her by my side. The next moment, I was sad to think of her leaving.
It was like, I had been just living in this bubble, where I thought that everything was just fine between us. That, she was here to stay. But I was dragged back to reality that she was going to leave me,again.
“So soon ?!!” Akshara aunty asked.
“Yeah. I have University to attend. Holidays are over.” She replied.
There was a long silence after that as akshara aunty and naira saw me at the doorstep. Akshara aunty smiled at me and then left the room.Naira kept stealing glances at me asking whether I was okay while I just looked away from her.
I had so many questions buried inside me. I had to know why she had left. I had to know why she was doing this to me. What were we ?!! Friends?!! I certainly didn’t think so. I had gathered enough courage when I walked upto her.
“We need to talk.” I said straightaway.
“Okay. Go on.” She said.
“No not here. We need to go somewhere else.” I said and before she could protest I was dragging her out of the house.
“What are you doing ?!!” She asked as I unlocked the car door and got in.
“Just get in already.” I ordered. I hated the way I was behaving,so dominating. But she listened to me anyway. She got in after me as I started.
“Where are we going ?!!” She asked.
“I don’t know.”
“What do you mean by you don’t know ?!!”
“Matlab Mujhe pata nahi Naira. Now please just shut up !!” I yelled. I could sense her tearing up beside me. I was being a jerk and I knew it. The fact that I was losing her again was too disturbing.
“What is wrong with you ?!!” She yelled back.
“Listen don’t mess with me at the moment. You don’t know what’s wrong with me ?!! Well, what’s wrong is that I f**king love you and you are planning to leave me again ?!!” We were actually getting into an ugly banter now. She looked taken aback for a moment.
“So what the heck were your thinking ?!! That I was planning to stay here forever ?!!” She asked.
“No but if you had to leave me in the end then why did you come so close to me in the first place ?!! You didn’t even have the courtesy to tell me that you are leaving !!” I fought back. The pressure on the accelerator increased as I lost track of the speed limit.
“I just told you back home !!” She yelled.
“Correction. You told your mom, not me.” I said. There was a long silence after that. I could feel the tension in the air. She was definitely angry. So was I.
“Just stop the car.” She said.
“Don’t be such a drama queen. I get the fact that you are angry right now. So am I.” I muttered.
“Just stop the car Karthik !! Please.” She yelled. I sighed and hit the brakes abruptly. We had halted in the middle of nowhere. It was a deserted road bordered on both the sides by trees. We were nearly out of the city. Naira got down followed by me. She didn’t bother to say anything. But she started walking away.
“Where do you think you are going ?!!” I asked.
“To hell !!! Why do you care ?!!” This girl seriously had some anger issues. The both of us, for a fact, were very short tempered.I had no option left, but to follow her.
“Hell doesn’t need another monster you know.” I said. She stopped and shot me a glare . “Why are you being so dramatic ?!!” I asked.
“Why are you being so pathetic ?!!” She replied.
I sighed. “What do you want Naira ?!! Do you want me to apologise to you for shouting at you ?!! Okay then I m sorry !! Happy now ?!!” I was defeated.
She shook her head.”It’s so easy for you to shout at me first and then apologise.” She said.
“And it’s so easy for you to leave me again and again without any proper explanation.” I shrugged.
“Why are we getting back on that topic ?!!” She asked.
“Because we need to !! Okay ?!! Someday or the other we are gonna have to talk about this.” I spoke out.
“Don’t be a dumb jerk. I don’t wanna talk about it !!”
“Oh don’t be a stubborn selfish b***c then !!” The moment those words left my mouth I saw her expression change. She went from angry to pale. She shot me a blank look before her anger took over again. It didn’t take much time for her fist to make contact with my face. She hit me hard.
“Ow. What the hell is wrong with you ?!!” I exclaimed holding on my nose. It got hurt. She was a great puncher. Now I know what Rithvik must have gone through.
“How dare you call me a b***c ?!!” She yelled throwing random punches at me. She pushed me away and kept on hitting. But it barely hurt. I could see her torturing herself while I stood in front of her like a dummy allowing her to hit me. Once she was tired she stopped.
“Are you done ?!! Is all your anger and frustration gone now ?!! If not you can hit me more. But its not going to stop by hitting someone else or even yourself for that matter. Its going to stay inside, till you yourself take over it.” I said. She hung her head low and sobbed. The sight of it just made me go weak on my knees.
I wrapped my arms around her from the side and nuzzled my face through her hair. “I m sorry. I didn’t mean what I said.” I whispered in her ear. She cried
“It’s okay. Why are you even apologizing ?!! You were right. I m selfish.” She said. She was so weak and fragile in my arms that I feel like holding her forever.
“Don’t say that. You are not selfish. Okay ?!! Its just that I m here losing you all over again.” I said. She gently pushed me away.
“You can never lose me. I ll be always a part of you.” She said.
“But you still won’t stay back. You still won’t change your decision of leaving.” I said. She just looked away. “Can I at least know why ?!!” I asked.
“Because I m not good for you. I can’t even explain that Karthik !!” She cried.
“Good enough ?!! Really ?!! Naira you are the best thing that has ever happened to me. I love you so much. And I know it, you love me too. But there’s something stopping you. I just want to know what it is. We can fight it back.” I said.
“I wish we could.” She said. “But please Karthik don’t make this harder for me. I have to stay away from you.”
That angered me. I was frustrated. Heartbroken. What did she mean by she has to stay away from me ?!! Why ?!! I felt like someone stabbing my heart with thousand knives as I took steps away from her. I turned my face and walked back to the car. The sound of thundering filled my ears. It was going to rain and within seconds I felt raindrops on my face. I was soaking, drenched. I could feel the tear welling up in my eyes.
I looked up at the sky and wondered, Out of all the girls in the world why did I have to fall for a girl who I could never have ?!! Suddenly I felt two small arms wrapped around my torso from the back. She rested her head on my back clutching me tighter than the usual.
“I love you.” She said.
“Then don’t go.” I said.
“I love you.” She repeated the same words. I didn’t know what it meant. I didn’t know whether she would stay or not. I turned around and cupped her face with my hands. The raindrops rolled down her face.
Without giving a second thought I planted my lips on her. We kissed in the rain. We could feel the intensity of our love.
That day about one thing I was sure
If it isn’t her. . . Its no one. . .
We are fighting but we soon make up. Its hard for me to stay away from him now. Every bit of me now is craving for his touch, his voice, his lips. We kiss in the rain. He takes me to his home. We are all alone in the house. I m in his room all drenched. So is he. We are craving for each other. We want to be part of each other for the rest of our lives. Even if we aren’t together in the future. That night, I pull down my guard. I break all barriers and go ahead to follow my instinct.
He leaned forward. He placed his lips on mine. They felt warm and gentle. I closed my eyes. My hands moved halfway to stop him but lost the resolve to do so as the kiss felt amazing.He kissed me long and deep. Never had a kiss felt so good. He had poured all his heart in the kiss. He continued to kiss me, the intensity increasing with every passing second. His fingers lingered down the back of my neck.My hand slid under his linen shirt, already wet due to the rain and I placed my hand where his heart would be. What we did next was something I would never forget. We made love. At the end he put his arm around me as we lay down side to side. Oh, if only I could spend my entire life in his arms……..
I could feel the morning rays seeping through.I opened my eyes only to be blinded by the bright light. A smile automatically creeped up on my face. I wondered whether it was a dream. But my doubts are cleared as I turned over in the bed to look at the most handsome man ever, Karthik. My Karthik. He was shirtless, smiling. I wrapped up myself in a cosy blanket.
“It wasn’t a dream.” He said as he pecked the tip of my nose. I smiled at all the memories of the night before.
“You look so beautiful in the morning.” He said making me flush red. It is so wrong to make someone blush like that in the morning.
“Thanks.” I said.
“Now you know, last night is the best night of my existence.” He said planting his lips on mine. I kissed him back and slipped into one of his t-shirts lying nearby. The only sound was that of the raindrops hitting the windowpane. It was slightly drizzling.
“What will you have, tea or coffee ?!!” He asked while fixing his hair in the mirror. I admired him and stared him like a creep, head to toe from the bed.
“I don’t like coffee anymore.” I said. He smiled. A perfect smile for which I was willing to trade anything. “I ll have to head home now, actually Mumma and Papa might be freaking out.” I groaned.
“No worries. I will drop you home.” He said slipping into his striped tee. He topped it with a leather jacket. I nodded.
“Hey !! I m burrowing your shirt for a while. Mine is still soaked.” I said.
“Yeah yeah. What’s mine is yours. Take it.” He smiled. I go out of the bed and slipped into my jeans. Fortunately it had dried.
“I m gonna head down. Take your own time. I ll be waiting.” Karthik said before planting his lips on mine.
“Why so eager Mr. Goenka ?!!” I asked.
“What do I do Miss Singhania.You are too beautiful to resist.” He said his arms around my waist pulling me towards him.
“Liar. Which movie did you steal this line from ?!!” I asked narrowing my eyes.
“Arrey I m serious !! Its original. I wont lie.” He said. I placed my palms on his lips before he could continue.
“Go now. Wait for me downstairs.” I chuckled. He nodded and planted a kiss on my forehead before leaving downstairs. Once, he was gone down I knew, I was in deep trouble. For this guy was driving me crazy.
