One day I got call from unknown number. I was in meeting. So I couldn’t attend the call. Later I was busy with my works. I totally forget about the call and thought that it may be some telemarketing call. In the late evening around 7.30 pm , I left my office…while driving I got a call gain. Usually I won’t attend the calls while driving. So I couldn’t attend the call this time too.
After a long drive I reached home, refreshed myself and had dinner. When I entered into my room and took my mobile. I noticed that I got four times call from that same number. The time was almost 10 pm. It wasn’t looking good to call at that hour so I sent a message saying…
“ Hi…..i was travelling so I couldn’t attend…can you call now ??”
I thought that if the person really wants to talk to me they will call me back or if that Is just a telemarketing call then no problem.
I was very tired and eventually dozed off in bed. Morning I woke up very late. So left the home in hurry..without glancing at my phone. When I reached office I checked my mails and then checked my mobile with had a notification “ 1 new message “ ..Yess from the same number.
Unknown number : Hi Arjun….No problem….
I replied back
Me : May I know who is this?
Unknown number : really? You don’t know who I am”
Me : Ofcourse I don’t know ..that’s why m asking you…
Unknown number: I’m very upset..catch you later..
I thought that some of my friends or cousins were playing with me from their new number. So I didn’t give it too much of importance and started to do my works..the day was filled with a lot of works and I didn’t even get a time to see my mobile once..
When I reached my home and saw my mobile notification “ 100 new messages” from the same number..i was shocked and took it seriously…All messages were same stating “Hi, please reply me…”
It started to bother me and replied back
Me: hey who are you??
Unkniwn number : still you didn’t identify me….
Me : hey idiot..who ever you are..i’m already in tension..don’t play with me like this…
Unknown number : Oh sorry..you should take rest then..i’ll catch you later
Me : first tell me who are you?
But then no reply and even when I made a call but it was left unanswered …..the next day morning, I woke up soon and reached office..
Unknown number : are you alright now??
Me: Yess..Please tell me who are you? “ I replied this time lil bit in pleadingly..
Unknown number :Guess in three chances
Me : hey what do you think of yourself???? I’m not in mood to play…” I was hell irritated and annoyed
Unknown number : (silent)
Me : hey Neil..If its’s really you..i will not think even for a sec before I killing you…
I replied as My bestie Neil was known for this kind of mischief…that bastard had tortured me like this many times…
Unknown number : I’m a girl….
I have very less friends in female category and none of them changed their number so far…I was damn sure I was in touch with most of them daily…so still felt that someone is playing…
Unknown number : why this shock???
Also I had concerned that if I start believing that it’s a girl and later at the point if I came to know that it’s any of my friends then I will be teased to death..My friends will broadcast the conversation to my whole group of friends….so, I was very careful as I have undergone a similar kind of embracement few years ago…
So I didn’t reply further and made a call….as usual the person left it unanswered
Unknown number: sorry I can’t attend call right now..but I will talk to you later…
Me : okay..whats your name???
Unknown number: remember ..i told you to guess it
Me : I’m very weak in that..so you tell by yourself
Unknown number ; okay ..dont cry now..
Me; I m not crying
I got frustrated and sent the message with the full of “ XXXXXXX” language I know…
I didn’t get any reply from that time and I was very happy..Finally I pissed off the person who was annoying me…but in the corner of my heart there was an eagerness to know who it was..
No messages or call from that number for two consecutive days..i was very much relived but at the same time I enquired all my friends about that number and even checked their mobiles and whatsApp number…but no one had that number…I was very much confused and also felt ashamed for the way I behaved to unknown person…so I messaged…
Me : I’m very sorry….i thought that my friends were playing …so only I frustrated
And instantly I got reply..i quickly checked it
Unknown number : No problem
Me : thank god you forgave me..
Unknown number: I didn’t mad at you…as you got frustrated ..i didn’t disturbed you for sometime…that’s it
Me: thanks..at least tell me now…who are you??
Unknown number :we met long back in a road
Me: in a road?? Sorry but I don’t remember it…
Unknown number : but I can’t forget your help
Me ; first tell me your name..its your turn to help me now…( winked emoji)
Unknown number : Radhika
Me: how did you got my number?
Unknown number : that’s secret…
Me : okay…
Unknown number ; friends??
Me ; yeah sure ..tell me when you are free..i’ll call you..
I started to imagine so many things..but I still I had doubt ..so I waited for her call to confirm that she was a girl but not any of my stupid friends
One day..she called me…
She : Hiiiiiii…
Her voice was so melodies, sweet and chirpy…
Me ; hi…
She : how are you?
Me : I’m fine…
She: good…then??? At least do you belive me now??
Me : yes…but no mimic and use of any app, right??
She “ hey really its my original voice…why this much doubt???
I explained the reason of my doubts and within few minutes of our talk ..i was able to understand her…she was very positive person..i could sense that vibes from her…my lips were always in curved of smile when I talked with her…
We talked for almost an hour..but when my phone beeped with message of low battery I had to put back my phone..
Me; hey radhika, I have to end this call as my battery got low…
She : your battery ? you runs on battery…
She laughed..it was so magical and I couldn’t resist but to laugh at my stupidity..
Me : I mean my phone’s battery got low….
She ; I got it..i was just kidding…see you later..byeee…
Me : bye…
From then on , we started to speak daily over phone and chat regularly over WhatsApp…Day by day..she becomes close to my heart and I saved her number in the name of “GF”
She was very innocent . very kind. Very caring. And very affectionate. I totally got impressed and almost fell in love with her without seeing her. but as every guy wish to see his girl , I also wanted to see her….hence , I messaged her with a lot of hesitation and asked
Me : please don’t get me wrong but can I get your picture??
She : but why do you ask suddenly.??
Me : just want to see you..nothing else..
She : won’t you talk to me if I am not good looking?
Me : hey its not like that?
She : then?
Me : just wanna see you
She: Get lost Arjun…at last you proved that guy will give preference only to the appearance..don’t talk to me…
I tried reaching her through phone many times ..but failed…she neither attended my calls nor replied to my numerous messages…I was very much worried and didn’t know what to do…
After two days..
She : (blank message)
Me : I’m very sorry Radhika
She : I’m sorry Arjun
Me : for??
She : I scolded you a lot ..though your expectation is correct..its natural but I over react….i am not that beautiful girl..I’m average girl..till now..no one cares for me..how I looks..what I thinks…I have very few friends….no guy came to me…
Me : don’t say like that..its all my fault..and don’t think ever that you aren’t beautiful..you are the most beautiful and innocent person I ever came across..
She “ okay ..forget it…
Me ; then..photo??
She : stupid…
Me : I sent blushing smiley
She ; one minute..i will send you my pic
Immediately my face glows up in to thousand volt bulb…with every round of that buffering circle my excitement increase to see her..and finally the picture downloaded completely…she was very cute and pretty..
Me : hey..you are damn cute…
She ; enough don’t blush much…
The very next day was her birthday..so I decided to surprise her .. after a long struggle , I found her address through one of my friend who worked in BSNL office. Luckily it was in her name..
On her birthday without informing her. I went to her house. I wanna give her surprise and wanna propose her…she has become my life…My soul..I wanted to make her mine..and live my life with her…like it happily ever…
A middle aged lady opened the door and a middle aged man was stood behind her and enquired me..After I told them that I came to meet Radhika…they took me to the room around the hallway….there….she posed with cute smile and carried a naïve look in photo hanged over the wall with a little diya lit infront of her…
I threw a puzzled look to her parents. They explained me everything as that happened…yes….now only I remembered …As she said earlier….i met her in road…only her face with full of blood…..
At that moment, I felt being carried away miles back to the day when I met her….i was able to see only the faded part of my memories but still I could clearly saw her face covered with blood.
Suddenly my body jolted out of fear and I was already sweating here and there all over my body and I came running out of the room…only them I remembered to breath but still I was suffocating to the death…when the all unanswered questions that running through my mind through the thick and thin of my nerve starting killing me slowly. I decided to leave the place…..
That’s when I saw that two old faces followed me with puzzled look for second and then the old lady went in back to her room again asking me to wait…the man was standing besides me kept glaring at me blinking his eyes often but his glare seemed to carry thousands of meaning for which I couldn’t interpret…After a couple of minutes she came with envelope in hand handed over to me…
I got hold of it with shacky hands and I rushed back to my bike without turning back even once and without informing them that I’m leaving..i quickly kick-started and drove back to my house..on my way , her face kept coming back to me even while I didn’t make any effort to remember her. I literally ran to my room to avoid her..slammed the door and slid down behind the door….but her thoughts haunted me…
I was on the way to my office via one of the calm roads of the city early in the morning and suddenly heard a loud noise…..the truck which over took me hit the bike that was going infront of me and the girl who was riding the bike fell aside…before I got down from my bike she lost huge amout of blood…she was gasping for breath when I went near her and she slowly looked at me…immediately , without wasting time I informed ambulance and gave her the first aid with kit I had with me…
Later when the ambulance arrived . I went with her in ambulance as she was holding my hands and I didn’t want let her hand go…on the way..i saw how desperate she was to liveher tight hold on my hand was stating that she didn’t want to die……At that moment..i understand what’s life….when there are people on the earth who always complaint how complicated life is and even decided to end it….there are also people like her who knows the value of life…how pretty it is and wants to live it deseperatly… I admitted her . informed her parents with the number in her mobile and left the hospital
Tears started flowing down my cheeks and I was gasping for breath..then I realized that I was holding something in my hand …I slowely opened the letter that the old couple gave me and it reads
“ thank you so much…it’s only because of you that I’m blessed to see and talk with my parents for one last time..i will never forget you even after my life and I wish you wonderful life ahead…Drive safe….”
When I just ended up reading the letter ..i got a call…my hands were trambling with fearand I slowely reached for my phone in my pockets and attended the call..
She: hey idiot…wont you even wish for my birthday???
—the end of the new beggning—
