I never stopped loving you,
I just stopped showing it !!
“It’s good to see you out of that room.” Naksh said as I arrived at his house.
Almost everyone was present,except her. I knew I wasn’t supposed to look for her when there was nothing left between us. But even after whatever happened, some part of me was dying to see her.
“She’ll come. She has gone to the main road to pick up someone.You get your butt inside.” Naksh said, leading me in.
I greeted everyone, putting on the same good old smile. It felt good, being in a different atmosphere. My messed up room, where there was hardly any place for one to walk, had become boring.
It was really annoying to get those sorry looks from people. I wondered how the news spread like a fire, but I wasn’t happy with that at all.
Not wanting to ruin Naksh’s promotion party or anybody’s mood, I choose a corner to sit alone and grieve. All I did since last couple of days, was to feel sorry about myself and try to hate Naira. Well you could say that I was successful in doing the first thing, but the second one was the toughest one !!
I was trying to divert my attention, when my eyes fell on a girl standing far away from me. She was talking to Naksh and I immediately knew who that was, the one I wanted to stay miles away from — Naira !!
Wearing a high waisted black shorts and a cream coloured sweatshirt, she flaunted her perfect figure. She wasn’t too curvy, but neither she was too skinny. Didn’t matter what she wore, she always managed to take my breath away. I had almost forgotten that she wasn’t alone.
She was with him !! Rithvik !!
I guess that was the only thing left to see. A few minutes ago, I felt so good. Like I needed this change. But now, I felt like throwing up. I was just better off in my room, amidst old unwashed clothes and stinky shoes and what all crap.
I didn’t even realize that I was staring at Naira, until someone tapped my shoulder. It was her. I snapped out of my thoughts of finding ways to kill Rithvik, and looked at Naira who stood right in front of me.
It’s weird how she managed to make me go weak every time she looked into my eyes. But this time, I composed myself on time.
‘Not anymore !!’ I thought and put on a brave face.
“What ?!!” I asked trying to be as rude as possible. Even though it hurt.
“Nothing. I came to get a drink.” She replied with a sweet smile which indirectly sent the message, mind your own business.
“I’m sorry, but do I look like a bartender to you ?!!” I asked, trying to be rude again.
“Not really, because of that jacket. But if you remove that, I’m sure there will be no difference.” She said, pointing at me jacket.
C’mon now,insulting my fashion sense was no less than insulting me !! Watch out sherni !! I am not someone you want to mess with right now.
“Really ?!! You know what you look like ?!! If you take off that shirt, you surely look like a whore.Ohh wait !! Who am I kidding ?!! You are one, aren’t you ?!! Falling in love with other boys the moment your boyfriend leaves the city !!” I said.
The moment I said that, she just,changed. Like in a fraction of second, she went from acting all rude to being an innocent puppy. She was tearing up, and I immediately regretted what I had just said. I could’ve kept my mouth shut and walked away, but I didn’t. Instead, I made it all worse.
“I didn’t mean that.” I said coldly.
I wanted to hug her and apologise right at the moment, but this stupid ‘EGO’ always comes in between.
“No.” She said in a cracking voice. “You meant that.”
Okay, maybe I did. But that was just a snide comment. I didn’t intend to hurt her that much. I could never do that on purpose.
“I did, okay ?!! But not in that sense. You started it and I just replied back.” I said and shrugged.
“Ofcourse I started. Right !! At least I didn’t call you something so cheap.” She said.
“You want to talk about cheap ?!! I say a word to you and that’s cheap. You are in relationship with somebody else even when you know what’s between us and that’s perfectly alright ?!!” I asked and didn’t even realize that I had actually raised my voice on her. People were looking at us and it got more and more awkward.
“Ofcourse I do !! Why shouldn’t I ?!! Give me one good reason to stay with you. You said I cheated. You called me a whore. What are you ?!! Think about what you’ve done and then get back to me.” She said. She seemed really pissed off and so did I.
“There’s nothing left to get back to you for !! How can you even blame me for whatever happened ?!! It was you and him. I was the one who loved you since the beginning, but all you did, was to take me for granted. You did so many mistakes, and everytime I covered up for you. I thought let it be. She’s going through a lot. But I was wrong !! You used me, Naira !! Open your eyes and see what you’ve become and then get back to me.” I said, letting out everything that I had buried inside myself for days.
She was taken aback. All she did, was turn around and leave. Everybody, except me, stood dumbstruck with whatever scene was going on, and I, on the other hand, not knowing how to deal with all this shit in my life, walked out of the party !!
Precap : Naira back in the past. Getting some flashes. Fainting. Karthik brings his sherni home. Some crying and some cuddles !!
So I have a question for you all. What do you think Naira remembers in the precap ?!!
The next Chapter will have some Kaira romance. Also in this Chapter Both kaira are angry and diappointed with each other which leads to a fight between them. I would like to justify that sometimes people vent out things that they do not mean when angry !!
Don’t have much to say right now as I am completely depressed as the end of this ff is coming closer. Thank you all for the love and support that you have shown.
Do comment. Keep smiling. Keep watching Yrkkh !!
