Because I am truly,madly and deeply in love with you and I would never ever give up on Us !!
It has been four days since that accident. I was feeling like I had lost a big part of my life. Nobody understood how hard it was for me to stay away from her. Four days and I hadn’t seen her. I hadn’t heard her voice.
Everyone tried to get me out of the house, spend some time outside, do stuff that I liked. But nothing worked.No matter what I did, or where I went, my mind couldn’t stop thinking about Naira. I only kept asking myself the same questions again and again .
Why me ?!! Why us ?!! Why can’t we ever be happy ?!! Why destiny always sets us apart ?!!
Currently I sat in my room, trying to focus on some presentation. As I was about to finish it and sleep, my phone rang. I looked at it and wondered why this boy was calling me at such an odd timing. It was 11:30 pm and the person calling was Naksh. I immediately picked up, hoping everything was okay.
“Hey, What happened ?!! Is everything okay ?!!” I asked.
“Haan.Don’t worry. I’m sorry I called you at such an odd timing.” he said.
“Nah, its okay. What’s up ?!!” I asked.
“Actually I needed a favour from you.” he said and I waited for him to continue.
“I was thinking about planning a homecoming party for Naira. Now that she’s recovering, I think she needs to know about her past. And who could help me better than you ?!!” he said.
“Oh. That’s great. Yeah, dont worry. I’ll manage that.” I said.
“That’s great !! So you text me all the details after finalizing things.” Naksh said.
“Yeah, cool.how’s Naira ?!!” I asked.
“She’s fine.We are just not forcing her for anything right now, but I just hope this homecoming party idea will get back some memories. There’ll be people she knows, so I’m guessing that will help.” he added
I sighed. “I hope so.” I said and hung up. So I had to plan a homecoming party for Naira. It should’ve been our engagement party…..
It had been four days since that accident and I wasn’t able to remember anything. Sometimes it was really frustrating.wait, who am I kidding ?!! It was always so frustrating !!
It was like losing a big part of your life behind. One day, you sleep in your bed, happy with your life and the next day, you’re in the hospital and you don’t remember a thing from your past. All the good, bad, sweet memories are just gone.
I walked down the stairs and sat beside mumma on the dining table. She looked like she was making a list ?!!
“What’s this list for ?!!” I asked.
“This is the list of some people whom you knew !!” she answered.
“And why are you making a list ?!!” I asked.
“Because, there’s a homecoming party for you tonight !! Naksh has organised it,All of your friends are gonna be there.” She said.
“Mumma, I really appreciate you throwing this homecoming party but I can’t go to party with a fractured hand.” I stated.
“C’mon you’re gonna be okay. The doctors have said so too !! Now don’t be a spoilsport and decide your dress for tonight.” she beamed at me.
I thought about it for a while. A homecoming party.wouldn’t that be a good way to meet all the people from my past ?!!
I was waiting for the right time to start recollecting the lost memories and now seemed like a perfect time.
“Alright.” I said and went back to the room.
After debating on what to wear, I finally ended up choosing something not so casual but not fancy as well.
It was evening time and I was ready to go, wherever the party was held. Bhai and me were driving to the venue.
Carefully, not to hurt my arm much, I got out of the car and before I even knew, I was attacked with hugs. Okay this was weird…
I just smiled at everybody and noticed someone standing alone in the background. It was him !! that guy from the hospital. I wanted to know him, but I also wondered why he just stood out and didn’t even talk to me while everyone else did.
“Naira, You look gorgeous.” Keerti bhabi said. She had been at the venue to take care of the people who had arrived as bhai had to pick me up.
“Thanks.” I said, extremely nervous. I was still adjusting with the fact that bhai had married her and she was a part of my family now. She was really nice and humble. The problem was with me as I didn’t remember meeting her neither did I remember their marraige.
Everybody seemed pretty cool. Nobody treated me like an outsider, in fact, I felt I belonged here,except one person. That guy from the hospital, I don’t know what his problem was, but he didn’t even come to talk to me. Whereas, that day in the hospital, he seemed pretty sad after seeing me.
‘Why am I feeling bad ?!! Maybe we weren’t really close before.’ I thought and shrugged off his thoughts.
I was introduced to everybody again. As I was standing on my own grasping all the information that was provided to me,I saw bhai and bhabi dancing on a slow romantic song.They were like the perfect couple and I wondered if I had a boyfriend before. My thoughts were interrupted by a light tap on my shoulder. I looked back to see someone I wasn’t really expecting.
“You okay ?!!” He asked. Yes, it was the guy from the hospital. I smiled and nodded.
“I hope you aren’t bored.” He said.
I looked at him again and that’s when I just froze. His eyes,they were so beautiful. But they were sad like something was bothering him. I couldn’t really make out what.
“No. I’m not. Everything is just,new, I guess.” I said, snapping back to reality. He nodded and was about to leave when I stopped him.
“Hey !! Who are you ?!!” I finally asked.
I noticed his expression change and his face went pale. He wasn’t smiling anymore, I don’t know why, but I felt like I made a big mistake by asking such a question.
“I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to,its just that I saw you in the hospital the other day, and it’s really bothering me. I thought maybe we weren’t so close before, but it’s just that,I don’t remember anything. I’m sorry for not recognizing you.” I said in one breath. He laughed a little and walked back towards me.
“It’s okay. I know you don’t remember anything and that’s completely fine with me.” He said and I felt relief wash over me.
“So were we like really close ?!!” I asked as I couldn’t help but let out that curiosity inside me. He got a bit uncomfortable but quickly composed himself again.
“Uh.No. Not so close. We were just friends.” He said. Even after him saying that, I felt it wasn’t true. I felt like I knew him since years but I decided not to question anything else.
“Oh, okay. Anyway, nice to meet you…” I said but realized that I didn’t even know his name.
“Karthik.” He said as soon as I stopped. Karthik that rung bells. That name was very familiar, but I decided not to say anything as everyone here seemed familiar.
Suddenly, we heard someone shout from the back. It was Keerti bhabi. She stood on a chair with a glass in her hand and was saying something which I couldn’t hear over the noise. So we went to take a close look.
“Hello everybody !! I want to make an announcement. So please come closer. Specially Naira and Karthik,you guys don’t stand at the back.” She shouted and indicated us to come closer.
But why us ?!! I looked at Karthik with a confused expression, and he seemed a little uncomfortable with whatever was going on. We went a little closer and stood beside bhabi. I looked around and bhai was trying to get her down from that chair, but she shooed him away. It was pretty clear, that she was drunk.
“So we all know. Naira and Karthik, they’re soon going to get engaged. And what can I say ?!! They just make such a cute couple !! So I would like to raise a toast to my beautiful sister in law, my best friend, Naira and probably one of the nicest person I’ve ever met, Karthik !! Congratulations you guys and I wish you stay together like that, forever and ever !! Wohoooo !! Cheers !!” She almost yelled and everybody just cheered on, raising their toasts.
I, on the other hand had no f**king clue about what had just happened !!
Engaged ?!! Me ?!! Karthik ?!! When ?!! How ?!! So many questions !! And my head was starting to ache. I was speechless and shocked. I looked at Karthik who was already looking at me. He tried to say something but eventually gave up.
What does she mean by engagement ?!! If I was getting engaged to Karthik, then why did he say that we weren’t so close before ?!!
I had no clue who was speaking the truth. I couldn’t trust anyone and suddenly, I felt like I was all alone in this crowd…
Precap : Karthik dropping Naira home. An intense and cute conversation between Kaira !!
So now Naira knows who Karthik is to her. What do you think ?!! How will she take in this new information that is provided to her ?!! The next Chapter would have a really touching conversation between kaira !!
