The accident !!
Naira had just called Keerti, to inform her that the New York plan was cancelled as she was getting married. Keerti had made her hear a earfull of things and then had cut the call.
She sat on her bed thinking about her dreams going away from her. How close had she reached to fulfilling her goals and ambitions but then all of a sudden everything was taken away from her. Her freedom. Her ambition. Her dreams. Her goals. Her existance.
Her train of thoughts got disturbed when her phone started ringing. His number. She frowned, after the day of the ring shopping, he had taken her phone, punched his number into her contacts and gave a ring with her phone to his. She never got a call though in these two days, but why was he calling her now ?!!
Naira got up and lifted the call.
“Hello, is anyone there on the line ?!!”The male voice cut a little but continued on.
”A person is injured here badly and bleeding, this number was on the speed dial over the guy’s phone.” The unknown voice continued.
Listening to that Naira gasped out, her ears started to ring, as the phone fell down from her hand.
Injured.Badly. Bleeding.Were the only words that swam around her mind.
Naira hurriedly slid down and took the phone from the ground and dialled back his number,but it came as switched off. What should she do now ?!! Her mind went into panic drive.
She didn’t know anyone of his relations or friends. God, how little did she knew about him. How ironic that she is getting married to him.
For the next to two hours Naira kept frantically dialing hospital, asking and describing about an injured patient, but nothing helped, and she became desperate with each passing hour. She knew that he had no one. He was all alone, but she couldn’t think of him getting injured. He was indestructible.Invincible.
She sat on her bed, helpless for about a minute, an idea came into her mind then. Naira opened her WiFi network on the phone and searched his name on Google. Immediately a fourteen page length information about him came into view. About his works, his business across the world, his net worth and many of his images.
Several images later, her finger tip clicked on a Bunglow’s picture. His father’s place in Udaipur.Naira kept wondering and wondering.She knew he had been staying at a hotel but then maybe, he was shifted home after the accident. An image of him lying unconscious on the ground with his head bleeding out came to her mind,and she winced and closed her eyes. No, that can’t happen. She got up, and moved out of her house and called out a cab.
It stopped right near where she stood, Naira hurriedly opened the door, got in and gave the address to the driver.
She sat perched in the cab with various images hay firing in her mind, making her more worried by the minute. She pulled at her Sari’s end and knotted and unknotted it in extreme nervousness.
Due to her mothers insistance, Naira had worn a saree today as the neibouring aunties were going to come to Singhania sadan to congrajulate her for the wedding.
The cab stopped abruptly, the driver turned in his seat.
“It just stops here, mam.”He said, and Naira looked around.
She could see a more far distant house. The cab stopped at the gate.
“Alright.” Naira mumbled and nodded.
She got out of the cab and paid the driver.
Naira kept looking, staring down the concrete road, and the thick shrubbery on either side of it. She took a deep breath in and stepped forward.
He couldn’t be hurt. That’s not possible, her heart told.
She didn’t know when she started running but she did.
Precap : Is he ohkay ?!!
So only Kirtana.sainath had guessed it correctly. Its Karthik who has met with an accident.
Thank you for all your comments on the previous Chapter. Do tell me how this one was ?!! I will post another Chapter before tonight as I have almost finish writting it. So stay tunned.
Also I would again like to clarify that I have written in the first Chapter itself that the story is a combination of two of my favourite novels. Its not completely my own work, I have made some changes and added my ideas wherever necessary. I won’t be revealing the novel’s names as then the suspense would get spoiled !!
Do comment. Keep smiling. Keep watching Yrkkh !!
