FF : I Am…FREE Part 2

June 8, 2012







His house was cold.

There was no laughter.

No one spoke.

Everyone walked past each other silently.

Grief, and sorrow shrouded the very air…

His heart weighed more than his body, his eyes were burning from the pain of weeping…

“Chote…?”

Arnav couldn’t bring himself to look at her…

“Chote…please…”
His eyes finally made contact with his Di…

His feet had taken him to the only person who would accept him, the only person who was left for him…

Falling beside her bed he brokedown…”I’m sorry Di…I’m so sorry…”

Anjali’s face was pale from bloodloss, her mind in tatters over the missing life within her…but her hand slowly crept onto Arnav’s head and tried to soothe…”Chote…This isn’t your fault…You have tried to protect me, sheild me, and put me first in everything…You are not to blame…and…neither is Khushiji…”

Arnav groaned as though someone had stabbed him…

“Where is she?” Anjali said…

Arnav shook his head…he couldn’t speak…if he said the words, he was sure he would die…

“Chote, I’m not okay right now…but I will be…I’m stronger than you perceive…but you, it’s time for you to stop being proud, stop being angry, and let your heart feel…you’ve been hiding for so long…”

Arnav stood up fast and slammed his hands over his chest…

“Chote?! Nani!! HELP!”
Nani rushed in with Akash in time to stop Arnav from falling through the glass door…

Akash quickly shifted and laid him on the floor…

“Has he eaten at all? Has he taken his medication?” Anjali asked frantically…

“Anjali, you STAY in bed! You don’t want to make him worse by having something happen to you!” Nani said firmly

Akash had already run to get Arnav’s medication…

“No, he hasn’t taken anything for 2 days now…no wonder…”

Akash crushed a tablet and mixed it with waters to make a paste and slowly helped Arnav to swallow…

Finally coming to, Arnav coughed and tried to breathe…

Instead of being thankful and appreciative, Arnav hatefully looked at Akash…”Why…did…you…save…me…!?”

“Chote?!” Anjali was now in tears…

Arnav quickly stumbled to his feet and ran out of the room…

……………………………….

“Khushiji, please just sit down…take some deep breaths…I hate seeing you like this…” Nk said trying to keep calm himself…

Khushi sat down and complied…

NK watched her in awe as she took deep breaths…

His eyes wandered to the rise of her chest as she breathed in…

Then his eyes roamed to her soft plump lips as she puffed the air out slowly…

When she finally lifted her eyes to his, they became lost in a world that she had once been captive of with Arnav…

But now…NK’s eyes held a power that didn’t frighten her…that didn’t threaten her…

A breeze drifted past and blew her hair lightly across her forehead…

As her hand lifted to swipe the strands away, it meshed with NK’s gentle fingers…

With her hand atop of his, he cautiously stroked her dark hair out of her line of vision…

“Whoa…” he murmured seeing her long lashes blinking back her shyness…

“I…I have stopped crying…” she breathed…

All urges to lean forward and press his lips to hers hit him at full force…

But he quickly lowered his hand…

Because she was still married to Arnav, and there was no way he would disrespect her any further…

“I care for you Khushiji…but I won’t besmirch your name any further…I am here for you as a friend…until the time comes where we may be more…”

Her eyes glistened with hope…

Her smile returned with honesty…

And as she lifted her hand to her chest, she felt a familiar beat, one that she never thought would play in her heart again…

Their eyes locked again as their friendship birthed trust…













I know it’s short…longer next time! Soooo busy today!
