Never give up on someone who means soo much to you……
I felt betrayed. Seeing her with Rithvik broke me from inside. I still couldn’t get my answers, as to why did she leave me without any explanation. Naira was very stubborn and feisty. If she had sworn not to tell, then she was not going to tell at any cost.
I still remember what she had done last time. She wanted to go to this party thrown by her friend. But since I was not in the mood and tired I had refused to go with her. She had then stomped her foot and left my room.
Later that night when I was in my bed and trying to sleep she had called me and said “You have to come. However late you come, that much shots I will have. And then, tomorrow you will have a headache because of my hangover.”
I had then hurried down to the club. I spotted Naira in a short red dress.She was wasted. My jaw droped seeing her with another guy who was trying to dance with her. I rushed to her side and put my hand around her protectively. I looked at the guy and said “Dude did she tell you she’s not alone here.” The guy had then backed down.
I saw the shots glasses. Eight down. I had then shouted at her ” Are you mad ?!! Eight minutes late and you had eight shots. Now whose gonna take you home. Your parents will probably kill you seeing in this state.”
I laughed inwardly as I remembered that night. How much she enjoyed getting me into trouble. She always was a dare devil around me as she knew that I would take care of her.
I wish I could hate her. Since the past two years I was trying to do so. I tried hard to bury my feeling for her. But I couldn’t. I just couldn’t do that. It was just too hard.
I didn’t feel like sticking up with the party and foremost I couldn’t see Naira close with Rithvik the rest of the night. I had to head home, get away from everything.
As I unlocked my car I saw Naira’s petite figure walking out of the house.Her eyes were swollen and red. She had been crying.
I called out her name and walked towards her.
Karthik : Where are you going ?!!
Naira : I just need some fresh air and silence. Its too much crowdy and loud inside.
Karthik : I will come with you.
Naira : No I can go on my own. Please.
Karthik : It’s not safe.
Naira : No I m not coming with you.
I rolled my eyes at her stubbornness. This thing had not changed about her in these two years. She was stubborn then. She is stubborn now.
Karthik : Yes you are.
Naira : Listen. I m mature enough. I can go alone. Hell, I will go alone
This was really hitting my nerve. I had angered her once. I couldn’t afford doing that again.Again we were fighting. Both of us being stubborn and too short tempered, one of us had to stay calm in such situations. And I was always the one….
Before I could do or say anything she had already left me alone. I closed my eyes heaving a sigh. She was gone but I know she never knew how to make it on her own. But she never lets her weaknesse get exposed.
I was worried about her. She wasn’t going to be safe and I had to do something.
I didn’t want his help. The person I wanted to see the least was him. All because I was too guilty.
I walked out of my house hoping to get some air away from the crowd. Meeting karthik again had messed up with my head. I was feeling valnerable and depressed.
I walked with four inches heels on. My feet were hurting. I never wanted to wear them but my boyfriend made me wear them. Just for a moment I thought about going back. But that was just for a moment. The next moment again my stubbornness and ego overpowered me.
Just a little more….I chanted this to myself walking down the street with depressing yellow lights. Everything was damn depressing. I was missing mendhak all of a sudden.
I could hear ticking of my heels. But that was not all. I could also hear a couple of footsteps more behind me. I was startled and looked behind only to see again a deserted street. I continued walking considering it to be my imagination.
But again, I heard the same footsteps following me. But this time instead of looking behind I started walking away faster. Trying not to trip because of those stupid heels. I heard the footsteps racing right now.
“Where do you think you are going ?!!” A thick voice spoke from my back. I knew I was being followed and looking back was not an appropriate option. So I continued to walk. But all of a sudden someone stepped in front of me, blocking my way.
“Where do you think you are going eh ?!!” He said with a disgusting and cheeky smile on his ugly face.
“Get out of my way.” I warned.
“What if we don’t. We just want to have some fun.” He exclaimed. But this time it was not the man in front of me. It was someone from behind. There were two of them, which made me realise I was in a ‘deep trouble.’
Before I could defend myself one of them tore a piece of my dress which covered my arm. I was shocked and scared. I tried to run but one of them pinned his hand above my head. I was held against the wall. As the man was about to lean in, I tried to set myself free but I was held too tight.
I realised going alone was a really bad decision. He was right. In fact he is always right. It’s just me who always screws up the good things in my life…our life… I could see what was going to come next, the men were planning to rape me. The man tore my sleeve which was now hanging. I was crying continuously and finally squeezed my eyes hoping and praying to be saved.
I burned under his touch. He smelled like alcohol. Soon his hands travel at the bottom of my dress and he was about to lift it up. I was trembling with fear. There was so much anger inside me but I was helpless. With my eyes closed, I was surrounded with nothing but darkness. My heart raced with an abnormal pace. I couldn’t feel anything but the cold air fanning my face. I opened my eyes only to see NO ONE. Yes, I was all alone.
The two men had vanished and I wondered about what the hell just happened with me ?!! Was it an illusion ?!! My doubt was cleared as I heard some yelling and shouting from a distance. I was not hallucinating for sure.
I went closer to see a man indulging in a fight with someone. I was shocked to find him identified as none other than Karthik. It was really him throwing heavy punches at the two men lying on the floor.
“How dare you touch her. You bl**dy swine !! Who the heck you think you are huh ?!! I swear, if you ever look at any girl like that again” He yelled at them kicking their lives out of them.
“Karthik stop it !!” I exclaimed recovering from the shock. But he didn’t seem to notice me. He just kept on hitting the two men who were now begging him to let them go. With no option left I had to step in.
“Hey. please. Stop !!” I cried pulling him away. He was strong but somehow I managed to do so. The veins in his neck had popped out with anger. He was sweating and panting heavily. I had never seen him this enraged before.
I sighed and cupped my mouth, crying. I was still traumatized. He noticed me at last. His dark eyes softened as he looked at me. He took out the jacket he wore and put it around me. It was warm and just smelled like him, which slowed down my heartbeats.
“Its okay. Its okay. You are safe.look at me, jaan, I am here now, you are safe.” He kept on repeating those words in my ear. I cried loud, letting out all my fear. I felt safe and secure the moment he called me jaan. Yes, I was his jaan.
“C’mon. Let’s get you home.” He said softly helping me up.
We stood by his car. My loud cries were little sobs now that only came out whenever I pictured that incident.
“Are you okay ?!! Do you need some water ?!!” He asked, concerned. I shook my head.
“Please get me home.” I cried with a cracking voice. It was all too much to handle, but also I couldn’t thank Karthik enough for stepping up. He nodded understandingly.
“Okay get in.” He said opening the door for me. He got in after me, and ran to give me some water.
He still loves me…
I still love him…
Then why can’t we be together ?!!
I cursed myself for losing the most beautiful thing that ever happened to me. I had hurt his ‘feelings’.
He was always saving me. That night too he came in as a saviour …. My saviour.
