Kyun - Episode 25
It was 11:00 p.m. Priyanca parked her car in the parking lot, and got out of the car. She quietly walked up the steps to her apartment building, not meaning to wake up her neighbors. The engagement ceremony was over, and Isha and Sameer were happily engaged.
She turned the lock to her apartment's door, and carefully opened the door. She put her purse down on the kitchen counter, and walked over to her room. She took off her necklace set, bangles, rings, and dupatta. She walked over to the closet where she got a pair of cozy pyjamas, and walked to the bathroom. She changed her clothes, brushed her teeth, removed her make up, and washed her face. As she opened the bathroom door, she heard the noise of footsteps coming from the kitchen.
She was not alone.
Grabbing a lamp, she walked over to the kitchen, nearly on tip-toe, in an attempt to be as quiet as possible. She saw a man in black trousers, a black sweater, and a black ski mask over his face - a robber. An armed robber, with a fully-loaded gun. Priyanca almost screamed, and tightened her grip on the lamp. His back was towards her, and he was busy snooping around the kitchen, we he spotted Priyanca's purse. Reaching over and grabbing the purse, the robber started taking out Priyanca's wallet, full of money and credit cards. Priyanca swung her arm around, as if the lamp was a baseball bat. She swung the lamp at the robber with all her might, leaving the robber nearly unconsious on the floor. Nearly unconcious. She slowly took the wallet out of his hands, and put it back into her purse. She grabbed a hold of her purse, when she felt something grab her ankle. It was the robber. In attempt to break free, Priyanca accidently kicked the robber in the face, ran over to her bedroom, and locked the door.
"What should I do? What should I do?" Priyanca wondered.
"Should I call Isha? No... She must be asleep. Should I call Sameer? No... He must be exhausted after the engagement party. What about Sakshham? Maybe he's awake?" Priyanca thought to herself, reaching into her purse and taking out her iPhone.
"Hello, Sakshham? I-It's Priyanca. Look, there's some hooligan in my house. Can you please come over and help me? I feel really scared!" Priyanca said through tears.
"Yeah sure. Just sit tight and don't move from whereever you are. " Sakshham said yawning.
Priyanca sat tight. 20 minutes passed, 30 minutes passed, and no sign of anything or anyone. Suddenly, Priyanca heard a sharp noise coming from her door, as if someone was banging on her door. Priyanca screamed, and ran over to her closet. The noise got louder, and after some time Priyanca heard a big boom! She peeped out of her closet, to find her bedroom door completely off it's hinges, broken on the floor. A sudden chill ran down her spine, as she knew the robber was in the room with her. She heard the closet door open, and closed her eyes in fear. Priyanca felt a tight grasp on her arm, and found herself being dragged out of the closet. Priyanca screamed the whole time, keeping her eyes closed.
"Priyanca! Shut up! It's me, Sakshham." Sakshham said putting his hand over Priyanca's mouth, and wiping her tears.
"Sakshham, I - I, I thought you wouldn't come." Priyanca said slowly, through tears.
"Of course I'd come Priyanca." Sakshham said smiling.
"But you hate me." Priyanca said blowing her nose into a tissue.
"I don't hate you. Infact I, I__" Sakshham's sentence was interuppted by a loud boom.
Priyanca turned around, to find the robber very much alive, sneering with a gun in his hand. She looked at Sakshham, who was laying down on the floor, blood coming out of his back.
"SAKSHHAM!" Priyanca scream, kneeling down next to Sakshham and sobbing.
"Priyanca." Sakshham said smiling.
"I've never told you this Priyanca, but I love you." Sakshham said slowly, with his time coming to an end,
"I love you too Sakshham." Priyanca said between sobs, hugging Sakshham.
It was too late. Sakshham was no more.
"YOU!" Priyanca began, glaring at the robber. "How could you? How could you even__" Priyanca's sentence was interuppted by another boom. Seconds later, she was no more.
They say that true lovers will unite, no matter how long it takes. Maybe in their next life, Sarrika and Karan - or Priyanca and Sakshham, will re-unite...?
