Chapter 14- Losing Hope !
Royal Palace , Ajabgarh
The day went in a blur for Fatimah , she was dead tired, she relaxed herself on her bed , half laying , half sitting , she closed her eyes to give them much needed relief , when suddenly she sensed someone’s presence , she immediately opened her eyes and adjusted herself into a sitting position , though the person was standing on the other side of the layers that restricted her view of the person , she could easily figure out by his physic who it could be . âI hope I am not disturbing you Shezaadi Rajshree .â Nasir asked politely , acting all innocent , though he knew very well that he was the last person she wanted to see now. âOf course not Janab Subedaar , in fact , I was coming to meet you in your chamber.â she said sarcastically rolling her eyes only to feel Nasir’s deep chuckle. âOh ! I am so glad.â he said playfully , demolishing the layers âSo many layers you know.â he said while approaching her with slow steps . Fatimah got up and frowned âLook , Nasir ..I am not having any energy left for an useless argument.â Fatimah snapped at him . Nasir paused , a few inches away from Fatimah â Back to your feisty self huh?â he asked , while removing a strand of her hair from her face and tugging it behind her ear , Fatimah immediately moved back. âAnything worth discussing?’ she asked sternly âYes , about ‘us’ , it’s worth discussing .â Nasir replied , his smirk replaced by a frown now , his jaws tightened , clearly showing the depth of his feelings . âUs?â Fatimah asked mockingly âYes â¦.’us’â Nasir replied , this time , coming closer , but Fatimah did not step back as expected by Nasir , he was testing her patience now . âSo you are not going to leave?â she said crossing her arms over her chest âNot until you listen to me this time.â Nasir replied in a determined tone âFine then.â with those words , Fatimah stepped away to leave but Nasir grabbed her wrist and pulled her towards him , making sure that she bangs on his chest âNot.until.we.discuss .about.us.â he repeated , putting pressure on each of his words âLike this?â Fatimah asked , struggling to free herself from his grip âAs if you left me with any other option.â Nasir replied , pulling her closer he continued âI thought that since you have left me with no other option Shezaadi Rajshree , let’s do it in my way.â â Listen to me Fatimah! Things can get back to their places , I can make thing right. All I need is one more chance…for us.â Nasir said softly , by now , Nasir and Fatimah’s foreheads joined and tears staining the two broken souls’ respective faces. After a few moments Fatimah realised their positions and pulled back. âPlease leave , now , please.â she said with a pleading voice. A fresh tear spilled from Nasir’s eye , he forwarded his hand to touch her but she stepped away. âI am sorry , I am sorry for everything .â he whispered before leaving.

Razia stared at the moon shining brightly in the Autumn sky , winter was nearing… again , it reminded her of her struggle five and a half years back. âSoon â¦ winter will arrive , and hen… spring , I just can’t wait for the season , you promised me that you’ll come to Dilli Mirza to ask my hand for marriage from Naanijaan . I hope she agrees , I can’t take any more hurdles in our marriage.â she said , gazing at the moon. â Of course , Altunia will manage to convince Naanijaan too.â came a voice from behind which snapped her from her daze , she turned back to find Yakut standing behind with a grin on his handsome face.
