Heyya guys !!!
This is my first post here ! So starting off with a love story , please do comment in and lemme know your feedback :)
Aditi couldn't believe what she heard..
" Hello , hello ..Adi ..you there ?? Hello , helloo.. "
Aditi stood motionless ...It seemed the world around her collapsed ...
Sahit kept repeating the hello , as she knew she was hearing him ..He wanted to be with her , to console , to lend his shoulders to cry , as he knew she was lost in Abhay's thoughts ..He cursed himself for giving her such a bad news , but he had to let her know this..There was something else he wanted to say , for he was sure that " that thing" will hurt her more , but he had to somehow ...That's what Abhay wanted ...." I want you to meet me , NOW "
Even as he said this , he felt it was next to impossible to meet her ..that too in this situation ..Moreover he was doubly sure that she couldn't come out of the house now , for she was never allowed to leave home alone ..As he was thinking about a way to meet her somehow , she spoke " Ok , will reach Cafe Ashvitha in ten minutes "
Strange...Sahit thought ..He was very uncomfortable , every second seemed to burden his heart ..Amidst the cool AC , he was sweating ....The waiters looked at him oddly , but his focus was on how to tell Aditi about what all happened ....
Aditi came 5 minutes late , but still Sahit was surprised to see her ..How come she is here ??? How ? Keeping his curiosity to himself , as he was about to speak to her , the waiter appeared to take up the order..
" How did he die ? "..The waiter looked strangely at her ..But Aditi hardly noticed this ..Sahit quickly ordered for 2 hot cappuccino , although he knew its gonna remain untouched ..
He looked at her ...The blood draining from her face , yet not a drop of tear wet her cheeks ..He felt something is terribly wrong ..She cant be like this ! She has come here so quickly , she is not crying , she isn't ....No something is going wrong ....Though he knew the reason , still he questioned himself ..
" Tell me , how did he die ? "
" He called me 2 days back telling he wanted to meet for last time ...We met up at CCD ( Cafe Coffee Day ) He was unusually silent for long time , and then he went out to buy something I guess ...I paid the bill and in 5 minutes was out of the shop , to wait for him ..." Tears swelled in his eyes as he recalled the horrifying experience ..."When I came out , I saw a crowd circling a man , who was in pool of blood ...It was he ..guess he had an accident " As she listened this , she began to shiver ...While Other customers enjoyed the cool breeze of AC , it seemed chilly to Aditi and Sahit words left her shivering more ...
" When he was in ambulance with me , I tried to act bravely , though my heart was weeping ..I tried to assure him that he is going to be all right soon , though it seem so ..He just smiled , and with great efforts handed me an envelope , with a rose , which he was clinging tightly ..." Say her sorry ", and then his heart didn't beat more..."
Saying this , Sahit wiped his tears , cognizant of the atmosphere , as he kept the envelope and the rose on the table ...She stared at the blood stained envelope and the 'blood'y rose ..She wanted to grab and read , but the blood stains , shivered her ..
" You read them ? "
"No ..Its just for you ..Read it ...for him "
She stared at them for a long time , and finally with shivering hands she rested them in her bag .." I have to leave now "
Sahit wanted to comfort her , but he felt it was better to leave her alone ....." You can call me anytime , if you need "
" Yeah.. I know that " and she zoomed her way out ....
