New Beginnings - Chapter 9

Previous Chapter :  New Beginnings Chapter 8

Take me to the Index 

On her way to the garden, so many baffling thoughts were lingering on her mind. "I wanna talk to you about something important", he had said. She thought, it definitely was a tricky sentence and it kept her mind preoccupied. Her mind kept shouting so many questions which were left unanswered. So she started imagining every possible explanation for that. Did I do something wrong? she wondered. Does he wanna break up with me? One part of her said everything is fine while the other kept hinting her that something was wrong. She wondered if he had second thoughts while committing to this relationship considering herself as a compromise he settled to considering the fact that he first looked like he was interested in her friend Preshika. After a long battle with herself, she finally gave up and decided to let him talk before arriving at any conclusion. So she dressed up as soon as possible and left her house. She always had the habit of reaching early and even that day she was 10 minutes early. That ten minute wait seemed like forever. With every passing minute, her pulse kept increasing. And finally the moment arrived. He approached her. She did not utter a word. She wanted him to get to the point immediately. He sensed the tension in the air and to ease her tension, he started with his usual trick to make her smile. He told her, "Hey you look so beautiful today sweetie!" and he smiled at her. But she just kept staring at him. Having failed in his attempt, he started to say, look Ishitha I need my space. And the rest fell into deaf ears. Though it was a very ordinary statement, she felt queasy. He kept saying something and finally when there was silence , she replied, “Ok if that's what you want and they left.

~~Engulfing Darkness~~

Here I sit, staring at the sky 
wondering if my life is as blank 
the darkness engulfing me
trying hard to break free
my vision blurred with the tear drops
fighting their way, oblivious to the outside world
embarrassment holding them tight
as I wait for the source of light
to illuminate the darkness
I am betrayed for the umpteenth time.
Still there lies a tinge of hope
like the stars that adorn the sky,
that sparkles its way throughout the night.
I will wait, wait for that day
when wishes would be fulfilled, 
dreams would come true.
If fate is iron strong,
so is my faith..!!

New Beginnings-Chapter 8

Previous Chapter: New Beginnings Chapter 7

Take me to the Index 

It was a foggy evening. The sky was clouded and blurred by the water droplets. Pritam was walking on a lonely road not really bothered about anything around him. The winds were blowing hard .The air gushed through his lungs and he lived every moment of it. The roads were steep thus allowing him to descend easily. At that moment, he saw a girl approaching him. It took him a while to realize it was Ishtiha. Without any hesitation, he walked towards her. She was taken aback by his presence. Silence prevailed for sometime. His inside kept shouting "break the ice" , so did hers. After what seemed like an eternity, both opened their mouth and uttered sorry which synchronized. All of a sudden, a heavy burden seem to have lifted from their head and they felt a sense of relief. Involuntarily he approached to hug her and she did not resist. It has been 5 months since they spoke with each other. Pritam asked, so how have you been albeit knowing the answer for that question. She took some time to reply trying to rephrase her answer that would try to hide her obvious misery. After failing in her attempt, she thought of going with "It was hell" and tears started rolling round her cheeks. He wiped those tears and said, after what I had been through, living in hell would be a bliss and turned his head away to make his tears invisible. No matter what happened, we are both responsible for it and I am extremely sorry for letting you go. I promise I will never ever let you go, at least not in this lifetime. He grabbed her and wrapped her with his hands and softly whispered , you are mine and you will be forever ♥  

I love you too, Zindagi! :)
