Just because a relationship is over, doesn’t mean the feelings are !!
At that moment, I felt like somebody had snatched out my heart from my body. Like somebody was stabbing it with thousand knives and that somebody was Naira. She was hurting me.
I let her go. I no longer was holding her close. I didn’t want to,I felt so unwanted, stupid and foolish. I was angry !!
“I’m sorry, Karthik.” She said.
Sorry ?!! Does she even know what that means ?!!
I didn’t reply. I just stared somewhere else trying to process out everything.
“I did not mean to hurt you but –” She started again but I cut her off.
“Shut up.” I said trying to keep calm since we were in public.
I was not at all interested in listening to her apology and her saying how sorry she was.
“Don’t. Just get lost.” I said.
To my surprise, she didn’t even seem affected by whatever I said. She just gave me a cold look and stormed off.
I sat inside my car, banging the door so loudly, that I grabbed a few eyeballs. But I didn’t care !!
I still couldn’t get over the fact that Naira cheated on me. That too, with whom ?!! None other than Rithvik !! It was as if god was playing a joke with me.
I felt like shooting Rithvik right in his head. He knew about Naira’s condition. He knew she didn’t remember anything. I felt miserable. I didn’t want to see both their faces !!
I was used like a paper and thrown away in a bin,and the one who did this to me was none other than the girl I gave my heart to — Naira.
I drove home, speeding, earning angry looks from people on the road. I barged into the house only to see Naksh and Keerti sitting on the couch.
News travels fast.!!!
“What are you doing here ?!! Came to show me how sorry you are ?!!” I asked, heading up to my room. I didn’t bother closing the door behind, because I knew they were coming in anyway.
“Are you okay ?!! ” Keerti asked.
Ofcourse, I am not. . .
“Ofcourse, I am.” I said, fiddling with my phone.
They sighed and sat in front of me.
“I’m sorry, man. But I still think Naira would not do anything like that.” Naksh said.
“Yeah, well, guess what ?!! Even I thought so. But she herself said that she did.” I said.
“What ?!! I don’t believe this.Why would she ?!! You’ve to talk to her !!” He said. Before I could reply, Keerti interrupted.
“I guess something’s wrong. She won’t fall in love with him. She only knows him since three weeks !!” She said.
“But he knows her since three years.” I stated.
Naksh and Keerti sighed.
“I’m gonna talk to Rithvik about this. He can’t just come in between two of you.” Naksh said, but I stopped him at once.
“No. You’re not going to talk to him.” I said.
“Do you even realize what has happened ?!!” He asked.
“I do, okay ?!! I do realize that the girl I loved is in love with somebody else. But its not only Rithvik’s fault,it’s Naira’s too.” I said.
There was a long silence that followed .
“Are you not gonna fight for her now ?!! ” Keerti asked.
“No. I’m done fighting for her. I’m done hoping on someone who doesn’t even love me back. I’m done fighting against my destiny and now, she is not even worth it all.” I said.
“I don’t know what to believe, but you just have to know that I’ll always be there for you.” Naksh said.
“Everything is going to be okay.” Keerti assured, even though we all knew what was the consequence of Naira’s one confession. I just nodded.
“Thanks. But I just need sometime alone.” I said. They understood and walked out.
That was it.That was when I broke. I didn’t have the strength to fight anymore. I had lost all my hope and dreams. She was gone,again. This time, I guessed, forever. The difference was, this time, I wasn’t going to fight for her. This time, I wasn’t going to love her.
I cried. I cried like a baby. I couldn’t hold it back. Sometimes, even your cries, screams and shouts don’t seem enough. You cry till your eyes swell, you scream till you lose your voice but the pain doesn’t go away. It still remains in your heart. And to heal it, you ought to be strong from the inside. For me, that time, it seemed next to impossible,but I had no other option.
I looked at an old picture of Naira and me kept on my nightstand. I kept looking at it, relieving those moments we spent together. And then, suddenly, it dawned upon me, that the Naira from the photograph is dead !!
The Naira that I met today was not my Naira. She was Rithvik’s Naira !!
“I hate you.” I said, tearing the photograph into pieces. . .
Precap : Is Naira really in love with Rithvik ?!! Naksh comforting Naira and putting some sense into her brain !!
I felt sad writting about Karthik in such a state. The next Chapter will have some revealations !! I feel terrible writting an end to this story.
So 1 down. Only 10 more chapters left. I know you are not likinv the current track and so soon Kaira would be together !!
