We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts are never broken
Times forever frozen still
So you can keep me
Inside the pocket
Of your ripped jeans
Holdin’ me closer
‘Til our eyes meet
You won’t ever be alone
Wait for me to come homeâ

Ok.. so please.. as usual.. please do bear with my typos and grammatical errors..
Happy reading ðð
All were tensed. All meant.. Niti, Manha, Ankush, Neil, Gauri and Supriya. Supriya on one side as not picking up anyone’s calls and Gauri was least bit interested in getting engaged to the goof. There were only two days left. Niti was walking up and down…. pacing back and forth trying to get an idea of what to do to nail Chandra Prakash.
âNiti stop. Pacing won’t help. We have to do somethingâ Manha snapped.
âGet me a gun. I’ll go shoot him downâ Niti snapped.
âWhere do we get a gun from?â Neil asked as if he was hypnotized. He didn’t know what he was saying.
âGun merchants. Obviously. Or a police officer you knowâ Manha rolled her eyes.
âI know of how to make Varun confessâ Ankush said.
â You think Varun Shekhar will open his mouth? He will never. Whatever you doâ Niti snapped at Ankush.
Lord, she was on fire.
Ankush gave her a death glare and Niti was less.. she went to him and poked his eye.
âWoman what was that for?â he scowled as he covered his eye.
âYou glare at me once more, I’ll pull your eyes out and you’ll not be able to see your would be wife when you’re exchanging rings and taking wows at the altarâ she hissed and Ankush gulped. Niti smirked at the fear she saw in his eyes.
âSo what do we do?â Manha asked.
Niti got a call. Her face lit up.
âThank heavens you’re safe!! Where are you? Do you know how many times I’ve tried reaching you?â Niti asked.
âHow did you end up in hospital?â she asked.
Manha, Ankush and Neil got worried. Who was she talking to?
âAre you insane? How could you think of going alone?â she asked all angry.
âI’m coming right awayâ she snapped as she cut the call.
âWhat happened? Who was it?â Manha asked.
âSupriyaâ she clipped.
âWhat happened to her?â Manha asked.
âShe was attacked. She gathered all proofs against Chandra Prakash and Varun Shekhar and Exotics tooâ she replied.
âThat girl never listens. How is she now?â Manha scowled.
âShe managed to escape with a bullet on her stomach. She has mailed me the proofs. But I need the originals to submit it to Anant uncle. And I need to get her out of India. I’ll talk to the customs to let her go. If they don’t, I’ll have to bribeâ she said seriously.
âIsn’t it wrong? Bribing?â Ankush huffed.
âYou don’t see she’s in danger. Only this will be heard to you. Bribing and other unwanted thingsâ Manha snapped.
âNow let’s goâ she said and they all left.
They entered a special ward for VIPs. Supriya was not an unknown face. She had her own identity and being the youngest daughter of Aghastya Dikshit was more than enough. They entered the room and found her with her eyes closed. The nurse left after they got in.
âSupzâ Niti called out.
âHey Neetzâ she said weakly as she opened her eyes.
âWhy?â Manha asked all angry.
âI’m sorry. I’m a journalist. So, it’s not something new for meâ she replied in a low voice.
âBut still it’s dangerousâ Niti said as she cupped her face.
âNeetz it was necessary to save her. Anish loves her. He’s a good guyâ she sighed.
âAnish? Super senior?â Niti asked.
âYes himâ she replied.
âWe need to get you discharged and out of hereâ Manha said.
âHow’s the wound?â Manha asked.
âWe’ll know only if we checkâ Niti said.
âThe bullet pierced through the side of her abdomen. No damages to the inner organs and tissues. It’s not bad. She can go home in two daysâ the doctor replied as he came in.
âHow are you Ms. Dikshit?â he winked.
âI’m goodâ she smiled.
âWhat’s happening?â Niti looked suspicious.
âNothingâ Supriya said.
âNOW!!â Niti snapped.
âShe’s not injured. She had a bulletproof vest onâ the doctor chuckled.
âWhaaaaat?â Manha gasped.
âYou were playing us all along?â Neil asked.
âHeheâ she grinned as she got up and started jumping.
âShe can leave anytime. No chargesâ the doctor said as he walked out.
âWhere is the pen drive?â Ankush asked after the doctor left.
âWho is he?â she cocked up an eyebrow.
âHe’s Ankush Mishra. Radhika’s brother and a good friend. He too works in Bird Song.. as a legal advisorâ Neil replied.
Supriya peeled out a layer of her skin. It was fake. Looked more like skin. She took the pen drive and gave it to Niti.
âYou need to quit journalism. You’re a good hacker and you know Java like none of us. Please take up softwareâ Niti pleaded.
âNeetzâ¦â she started off.
âDon’t Neetz her. You listen to us. Nothing doing. You’re leaving this placeâ Manha commanded.
âYeah. I don’t want to go back too. The people who never raised their voices at me were ready to throw me outâ she sighed.
âWe’ll get you out once you’re fineâ Niti said.
âI’ll stay with herâ Manha said.
âWhy? We can take her homeâ Neil stated.
âWe need to distract the goons you dufus. Aaahhhhâ¦. Niti you have a brainless brotherâ Manha threw her hands in the air.
âI’m notâ Neil snapped.
âOh, you areâ Manha laughed.
âI’ve called Vaibhav for securityâ Niti said.
âNeed someone as family to stayâ Manha smiled.
âOkâ Niti agreed.
âNitiâ Vaibhav peaked in and nodded. Niti too nodded and he closed the door behind him.
âOk we’ll leave. Call if you need anything. I’ll go give these to Anant uncleâ Niti said as she clutched the pen drive tight.
âNiti there were girls Niti. All young ones. Below 10. In a cage. They had fear. It felt that they were praying for death and escape from the evil clutches than losing their dignityâ she choked.
âI won’t let anything happen to themâ Niti said in a promising tone.
âAnd the packets. They’re drugs. Cocaine, marijuana, brown sugar and heroin. They would have cleared by nowâ she signed.
âThey wouldn’t have. Thinking you are dead. It’ll be a blow when police arrives.â Niti smirked.
âHmmâ she hummed.
âI need to goâ Niti said as she turned around.
âNot nowâ Ankush pulled her to him.
âDo you have feelings for Niti? If you do, forget itâ Supriya sighed as she played music on her phone and stared to dance.
Ankush sighed as he gulped down the pain and let go of Niti. Niti went off to see Anant and submit the proofs. She mailed a copy to Karthik. Karthik was lost in Anitha’s thoughts. The mail Niti had sent brought life to him. He got his team ready. He managed to trace Varun Shekhar.
âGet ready Mr. Shekhar. You too Prakashâ he smirked.
Anant Narayanâs residenceâ¦.
âNiti is it true? The smuggling?â Anant asked.
âThey’re uncle. She checked it. They’re drugs. Cocaine, marijuana, brown sugar and heroinâ Niti replied firm.
âOk. I believe you. It’s possible that they would have cleared itâ he sighed.
âNo uncle. They thought she was dead. It’s possible to nab them. Even if we don’t manage to collect the drugs, we can nab the criminalsâ she stated.
âWe’ll see. Beta stay for a the night. It’s late. Don’t worry, Ankur is not at homeâ he said.
Niti sighed. It had been two years since his son Ankur Narayan had died. He was in the Navy. The old man was not ready to accept the fact that his son was dead. He still lived in the phase that his son was out in the seas.
âUncle Bhai will not come backâ she whispered.
âWhy? Did he tell you something?â the old man’s eyes beamed with hope.
Niti let out a breath âfor how long has he been out?â she asked.
âTwo years and a half years, ten days and ten hoursâ he replied.
âDo you know what happened six months after he left?â she asked.
âAll were blabbering rubbish. Saying he diedâ Anant said all angry.
âIt’s true uncle. Bhai died. Their ship was attacked without warning. Bhai is no more. Let it out uncle. Let it go. Cry. Aunty died of shockâ she whispered.
âNO!! MY. ANKUR. IS. ALIVEâ he punctuated each word angrily.
âUncle pleaseâ she pleaded.
âNiti please. Not you too. I thought yas my daughter. You’re not with me in thisâ his eyes welled up.
âYou’ve been living in a bubble uncle. Come out. I know the reality is too harsh for you. But you have to accept itâ she stated.
âHe’s no more then? My Ankur is no more? He won’t come back? He broke his promise?â Anant moved back and knocked down things that came his way.
âUncleâ Niti came forward, but controlled herself.
The old man had to let go. She saw him breathing hard and he was sweating. He ran to his room slamming the door and let out a loud painful scream. Niti cringed at the decibel and sat in the sofa waiting for him to come out. But he didn’t. She drifted to sleep sitting right there. She woke up in the morning to see herself on the sofa in the same position. She saw that his door was still closed. She went to the bathroom to brush up and made two cups of coffee and opened the door to his room. She placed tr coffee on his night stand and tried to wake him up. But she just couldn’t. She left after a while.
âHow is she Manha? No one came right? No problem right?â Niti asked as she entered.
âBetter than ever. And when you put up such goid security, why worry?â Supriya squealed.
âKid, shut upâ she rolled her eyes.
âFineâ Supriya frowned.
âI’ve booked your tickets to Vegasâ she said.
âVegas? Seriously?â Manha looked suspiciously.
âJust a random pickâ she shrugged.
âI’m Ok anywhereâ Supriya said.
âI’ve booked her tickets a on a date after aweekâ she said.
âGoodâ Manha clipped.
âYaar, why next week? Neetz make it tomorrowâ Supriya snapped.
When Manha came forward âpleaseâ she pleaded.
âWhy are you so stubborn?â Niti asked.
âI want to leaveâ she pouted.
âOk waitâ Niti said as she made a call.
âIt’s doneâ Niti said as she cut the call.
âThank you so much Neetzâ she smiled wide.
âYou’re so cute!! Be happy like this alwaysâ Manha ruffled her hair.
âThat I amâ she grinned wide.
âI’ll leaveâ Niti said.
âI’ll take her to your mansion. Bonnie won’t be lonely for a while atleastâ Manha said.
âBingoâ Niti gave a thumbs up and walked out.
The Dikshits residence was glowing. streams of marigold hanging around. Gauri was clad in a red lahenga with heavy golden work. Decked in antique temples jewelry. Niti who was in a purple anarkali came to her.
âDon’tâ she said.
âI have no choiceâ Gauri sighed.
âAnish? What about him?â she asked.
âTika will you shut up?â Gauri snapped.
âYou’re elder to me by a month. You can’t throw that power hereâ she grinned.
âHe’s not a good guyâ she sighed.
âLet’s goâ Anisha entered the room.
âYes momâ Gauri said as she went with her mom. Niti had no other go than to tag behind.
Arjun, Radhika along with Neil and Sam were there too. Ankush was with Karthik and Anant Narayan. Gauri made he way to the stage. Neil sighed as he saw her going to the stage. Arjun tickled Radhika’s waist and Radhika snapped hias hand off. Arjun pulled her to him and she was plastered to him.
âWe’re sorry to interrupt. This engagement cannot take placeâ Anant said as he entered with Karthik and Vaibhav.
âWhat on earthâ¦â Chandra took off.
âDon’t talk Mr. Parkash. We’re here to arrest you on charges of drug smuggling, human trafficking and diamond smuggling and for attacking journalist Supriya Dikshit. Last but not the least, blackmailing my kiddo Nitiâ Anant said in the calmest tone.
âAnd we have your cousin Varun Shekhar with us. So, don’t think you have the slightest chances of escapeâ Karthik smirked.
âAttack on Supriya?â Aghastya gasped.
âShe escaped!!â he hissed.
âYes. We have all the proofs against you. Don’t worry she’d have boarded her flight now and dare you to think of laying your hands on herâ Niti hissed.
Niti got a message..
It was Supriya’sâ¦
Supz: Neetz.. plane delayed by two hours.
She smiled inside. Replied punching an âOkâ.
âDo you think you can nab me even if you have my cousin?â he smirked.
âWe have ceased everything. From your drugs to the girls you’ve held captiveâ Karthik hissed the last part disgusted.
All those little girls there.
It had hurt him. He just wanted to shoot him down.
Killing would be an easy solution. He had to suffer. For a long time. Treated like given slow poison.
Chandra Prakash was pulled away by Vaibhav. Before he was dragged long enough, he took a gun from one of the officer’s side and placed it at his temple. Niti yawned as she saw Manha exactly behind Chandra.
âDare you to come near meâ he hissed.
Manha went close to Chandra and tickled him which made him drop the gun and Manha stomped his foot with her sharp pointy heels. He was pulled away again. Manha burst out laughing. He couldn’t hold a gun properly. Niti laughed all the more seeing Manha laugh to her heart’s content. Sam, Neil, Arjun and Radhika watched the girls including the bride to be dance to a party anthem. Ankush smiled wide and captured as many pictures he could. The girls danced around Ankush as he was the only young handsome male there. Ankush had shivers as his fingers brushed Niti’s. Everyone smiled at the three of them dancing and Ankush in the middle with a blank look.
At the airportâ¦.
Supriya scowled as the flight was delayed. There was half an hour more. She was sitting on the metal chair playing âTalking Tomâ and someone bumped on to her suitcase and it fell.
âBlind or what? Idiot kaheka!!â she hissed in anger.
âHello madamâ¦.â he raised his hand to speak, but was at loss of words seeing the woman standing in pure rage in front of him.
âWhat hello? Huh what?â she asked as she waved her hand in front of his face, breaking his trance.
âIt feel by mistake. Like I did it wantedlyâ he cleared his throat as he composed himself.
âThat’s what. You’re blindâ she snapped.
âYou’re small. Beautiful. But you have one big tongueâ he chuckled as he pinched her nose.
âDare you toâ she snapped.
âOh you’re saying because I’m a stranger right? Im Arjun. Arjun Mittalâ he smiled.
âAaahhhâ she threw her hands in the air
âWhat happened?â he asked.
âI hate the name Arjun!! And I hate you more!!â she screamed with her fists balled.
âYou’re cuteâ he smiled.
And your name?â he asked..
âJerryâ she snapped.
âSuits you. Oh, then I’m Tomâ he chuckled.
She rolled her eyes and bent down to pick up her suitcase. He too bent down to help, but she held her hand out indicating him to stop and he just smiled. She got up and walked away. He was in the same position, watching her smiling like an idiot. She entered the plane and sat down after placing het suitcase in the cabinet. She sciwlrfas she saw the man sitting next to her. Big surprise to him too. He smiled as he sat down.
âI forgive you for all that you said out thereâ he started off and saw that she was looking out the window.
âHell to youâ she snapped and looked out again.
âI’m shedding my ego and trying to be friendly. Here you are, hurting me more and moreâ he pouted.
She looked at him and smiled seeing him pout.
âI’m Supriyaâ she said and put the blanket over her head.
He chuckled seeing her cute antics and shook his head muttering âcuteâ under his breath.
Prologue to the sequelâ¦
“I hate you Komal Mehra!! I hate you!!” were the words from his mouth.
“You’re no less Jai Malhotra!!” she screamed back.
“So we’re even. I’m happy about that” he smirked.
“Are you going to be staring at me or walk away?” she crossed her arms.
“I knew it. You can never love anyone. You’re just like your father. Obviously, you’ve got his filthy blood running down your vains. You can only use people. Just like how your dad used my mom, faking to be in love with her” he hissed.
“Not a word Jai. Not on my dad” she snapped pointing a finger at him.
“Why? Why not? The truth seems bitter aye?” he smirked.
“Your mom was no less. She couldn’t see beyond it. But your so called father had an instinct and he loved her. He could have stopped her” she shrugged her shoulders.
“Not a word on my parents” he caught fistful of her hair tight.
He looked down at her with pure rage. She looked up at him with a mocking glare. His hold on her hair got tighter and she didn’t flinch even a little.
“We’re equal” she spat “you’ve lost the right to stand this close to me” she pushed him off and his hold on her was no more as he backed off stumbling with the force she had applied.
He looked at her with pure anger in his eyes. His eyes red and in a deep shade of black and her eyes reflecting the same. He took a step towards her, but stopped himself. He corrected his blazer and raked his fingers through his hair and turned back to walk away. But he stopped again. He turned around and saw her fiddling with her hands, looking at the fresh green grass below her feet. He threaded to her and pulled her in his arms which seemed shocking to her. He caught her face roughly and crashed his lips over hers mercilessly. Komal tried hard pushing him off , but his hold on her got tighter and tighter with every second that counted. But she ended up responding to his rough yet manhandled kiss and bit his lip hard that made him back off and breath hard.
“That is my way of saying a goodbye” he snapped at her.
“Did you read a novel before coming to break up with me?” she mocked.
Both stared at each other with pure hatred and walked separate ways.
“Komal?” came a voice that broke her thoughts.
“Huh? Yep Naira?” she asked.
“Still thinking about that?” Naira asked.
“My twin!! I’ve let go of that long ago. He’s no more in me” she gave a smile that didn’t reach her eyes.
“Dare you to lie to me” Naira scowled.
“You’re just like dad” she ruffled her hair.
“Don’t touch my hair. I’ve spent hours choosing the right hairstyle. It’s your wedding today. Dare you to try to distract me. I know you still remember that douche. The bride’s being called to the altar” Naira rolled her eyes.
“It’s not easy to forget him. I really loved him. It’s been four years and I’m still stuck there” she sighed nodding her head.
“He never deserved you” Naira hissed.
“Let’s go, I have an altar and a groom waiting for me” she sighed as he turned around to look at herself in the mirror and corrected her big antique necklace and gave herself one final glance.
“Let’s do this” she breathed out and walked out with Naira behind her.
