YuvAni SS: Trapped (Shot-4)
Four months later…..
I was walking in the forest alone, where someone used to accompany me four months ago.. She was my best friend.. I thought I had found my partner for life and we could have a perfect future together, but I was wrong.. She was a cheater.. I took out a cigarette from my pack and started smoking.. Suddenly she came from somewhere and held my hand.. She was in a red sleeveless, knee-length one-piece, looking gorgeous as always; her hair wasn’t tied and so they flew in the direction of the wind.. We continued to walk.. I looked at her, but she didn’t look at me.. I admired her for a minute.. “Why have you come now? What do you want?” I asked boldly.. “I’m sorry for leaving you like that.. But I won’t do that again.. We will always stay together.. You will have to promise me that you will never smoke..” She replied.. “Ok.. First you promise me that you will never leave me..” I demanded forwarding my hand.. She looked at me like I had asked too much from her.. It started raining heavily.. And then, she disappeared as usual.. This wasn’t something new.. In just two months spent with her, I got used to her.. After she left, I missed her so badly inspite of knowing that she would never look back.. I lighted the cigarette and smoked..
I got out of my trance when my phone rang.. For a very important deal with an Indian company, I had to leave for Mumbai next day.. When I told mom about it, she wanted me to go with her.. But I wanted to go alone.. I dropped a message on her phone that I would meet her after my return..
I was in a taxi.. I called up the director of the company.. He told me that the important details of the deal were with an employee who lived in a small house which was half an hour from the city.. It could be identified as it was the only house there and only two people lived in it.. I asked the driver to drop me there.. It was getting darker.. Suddenly it started to rain very heavily.. The taxi stopped near the house..
I rang the doorbell, and realised that the power had gone off.. I knocked at the door.. Somebody opened it.. I couldn’t see her face, but I knew it was a female due to her long hair.. She was wearing a top with full sleeves, a long skirt and a scarf too.. She turned the torch light of her phone on.. And we recognised each other..
The person I had been looking for everywhere, I didn’t know that some day she would come in front of me that way.. I looked at her like I wanted to make up for the last four months too.. I didn’t know what emotions she actually had in her eyes, because they told me that she was doing the same.. But my mind knew that she loved someone else, to such an extent that she didn’t even think about me once while leaving.. Suddenly the lights turned on, and one of her Arijit Singh’s song played in the music player.. We got out of the trance, and got back into it once again..
Teri nazron mein hain tere sapne,
Tere sapno mein hain naraazi,
Mujhe lagta hai ke baatein dil ki,
Hoti lafzon ki dhokhebaazi..
Tum saath ho ya na ho kya fark hai,
Bedard thi zindagi bedard hai,
Agar tum saath ho
Dil ye sambhal jaaye
Agar tum saath ho
Har gham phisal jaaye
Agar tum saath ho
Din ye nikal jaaye
Agar tum saath ho
Har gham phisal jaaye…..
I could feel the lyrics of the song.. They perfectly described my emotions.. I didn’t know if she could understand what my eyes reflected.. The music stopped.. “Can I, come inside?” I asked softly.. “Ya sure.. Come..” She replied and went inside.. She brought a towel for me.. I was all wet- in and out..
We were sitting on the sofa, having coffee.. “How are you Yuvraj? And maa, dadi, gauri?” She asked.. “Did you care about them while leaving? Did you ever try to know how are they? Definitely not.. Then why now?” I snapped at her.. I wanted her to know how angry and hurt I was due to her.. I knew she had no answers.. “By the way, where is the man of the house?” I added.. “He has gone out for some work..” She replied nervously..
“Are you in a live-in relationship with Sambhav? I mean, no sindoor and mangalsutra..”
“Those are out of fashion.. And even Sambhav has no problem, then why are you bothered about it?”
“They will never be out of fashion for people who value their marriage.. By the way, why did you choose to stay away from the city? For privacy….or something else?”
“He wanted so..”
“Oo.. I didn’t know you are his slave….”
“I was just kidding.. Those bottles there.. Do you drink?”
“He drinks often..”
“Can I see your house?”
She showed me the house.. Her phone rang.. She looked at me.. I understood it was Sambhav’s call.. I asked her to talk through gesture.. She picked up the phone.. She didn’t talk much; hardly for a minute.. Before hanging up, she said, “Love you too.. Take care..”
“You can talk to Sambhav.. You don’t need to feel ackward because of me..”
“Ya.. Of course not.. But its ok.. I’ll talk to him later..”
I took out a cigarette.. I could feel her gaze on me, but I didn’t say anything and just lighted it..
“Can I see your wedding album?”
Her face turned pale.. I know she hadn’t expected me to ask for it..
“I know I’m strange and unpredictable.. May be, that’s why you left me..”
“Why do you have to take every topic to that one single thing? Anyways, why did you come here?”
“I’m the client you are waiting for..”
“What??” She got up.. I grinned..
“I’m too tired today.. Can we start working tomorrow?”
“Ok fine.. You can stay in that room till you are here..”
“Thank you very much.. By the way, what about your wedding album?”
“Actually…….. They are….”
“Oh c’mon.. It was a love marriage, right?”
“Ya, but we had a court marriage..”
“Oh yes.. How can I be so silly.. After running away from your first marriage, you wouldn’t have invited the entire city to celebrate your second marriage..”
“Enough is enough Yuvraj.. Who are you to comment on my personal life?”
Her question shattered me from within.. She had proved that I held no place in her life..
“If I knew that I would have to deal with you, I wouldn’t have been here.. Its my bad luck..”
“You know what, the Yuvraj I knew was very lively and jovial, and not like the way you are taunting me again and again.. You have changed a lot..”
“And you know what, I have always been very straightforward.. Its your own doings due to which you are feeling like I’m taunting you.. And I don’t wana be that foolish Yuvraj once again who had so much faith in you..”
We stared at each other for a few secs and then she went to her room and locked it.. I couldn’t understand why everything seemed strange!!
