Hi friends I had this concept in my mind from a long time .. so I wrote a shortstory on it…
It'll just have two parts ….
On of which I have already written ,,I'll write the next n the last part only if u guys want me too….
Pls pls do read it n reply … even if u don't like it…..
Its basically a sajjan ss…
It felt strange being here…. Beside this stranger ….
It felt cold too ,
maybe I had not brought enough clothes with me to this place,,
to this hospital room … but still it was so much more colder here , much colder then what was explainable ,,,,
A gust of wind pushed my hair backward… i inclined my head in the direction of the wind….
I looked at the open window ,, I got up instantly to bolt it up,,,
I could endure the cold all right , but this stranger right here with me didn't need anymore pain then he was already in…….
Saying so I looked at his calm an serene face.. he was sleeping or so the doctors were saying 4 the past 5 days ,,,,
He wasn't handsome… no handsome wasn't a word enough to describe his beauty ….
Even in his present condition,, with a bandage on his head ,, a plaster across his right hand n bruises everywhere , he looked angelic ….
I moved n sat beside him again … I looked at the stranger's face again…
STRANGER yes that had been what he was to me ,,, I had never seen him before…
I would have remembered if I had ,,, as a matter of fact he was to devine to ever 4get …..
I sighed ..
I was puzzled .. I had no idea why I was still here .. what made me stop here????
Was it the pity I felt 4 this boy who seemed to be in so much pain??
Was it gratitude that I felt 4 him because he came in front of that goddammed truck just to save me????
I shuddered , the memory of that accident 5 days ago was still a pain,,, It was horror …had it not been 4 this boy …
It would have been me who would have been lying on this very bed, covered in tubes n needles n bandages from head to toe…….
May be it was this gratitude that made me stay in this hospital……
The boy winced ,, abruptly ending my monologue….
I placed my palm just above his hand n patted it lightly to sooth him,,,
Though still unconscious the needles tend to make him uncomfortable some how…..
The doctor has told me this a day b4 yesterday ,,,,
He winced again n this time I felt a movement beneth his sheets … he was moving his legs ….
I panicked , he was not required to move much ,,, that would make the saline needles come off … and that can't be good …..
He jerked his hand again ,, it looked as if he wanted to free his hands from the needles…
I held his arm more tightly …
"pls don't don't move … it'll just cause u more pain.. pls"
He had started to shiver n I had started to sob almost in the same instant…
I held on both his wrists ,, his eyes eyes were still closed but the shivering bit had gone out of control …
"DOCTOR, NURSE PLS COME "
I couldn't leave this boy to go out n call the doctor,,,,
He was trashing madly n I was horrified at what would happen if I left his wrists..
"don't don't pls … samrat don't"
That shocked me … I hadn't known this boy's name …but somehow I was so sure he was called samrat only….
Bloody hell ,no one here knew his name .. what was I …..!!
He winced again n this time may be grunted to…..
"what happened gunjan… oh good lord "
The doctor camein followed by that skinny nurse behind ,,,,, he immediately broke a vial of some liquid n filled the injection quickly with it…
In the mean time the nurse had finished applying spirit with a dapped cotton on samrat's exposed arm…
Samrat.. how was I so sure of his name?????
"don't leave him"
Saying so the doctor inserted the needle in his arm ,,, samrat …. No the boy winced again….
Within a few minutes his shivering stopped n he became absolutely still under my arms… ….
I didn't lift my arms back though …..
I was afraid that absence of my hold would some how make him thrash in pain again…
"leave him now .. he is ok gunjan"
As if I had been electrocuted ,my arms dropped to my sides"
I looked at the doctor now..just a day b4 he has promised that samrat…this boy was fine ,, that he would recover but now this!!!!!!!
"u said he was going to be fine!!!why the hell did u lie???"
My voice may be .. was more harsh then I had intended it to be ..
Atleast the shocked expression on the doctor's face said this ….
"I I yes I said that n gunjan he is going to be fine"
"what was this then ???? was thrashing in pain a symptom of recovery???"
I couldn't control the stream of tears that flowed down my cheeks now"
The doctor smiled..
"calm down gunjan ,,, this was a good news ,,, he is coming around ..
I expect he'll be fully conscious by the morning"
I slumped on my chair beside samrat's bed .. I felt relieve washing through me.. my head felt light weighted ….
"gunjan,, I think u should go hom now n sleep ..take some rest at least,,, its been 5 days n u have left his side only when u had to go n get ur clothes.. he'll be fine go n rest"
I shook my head .. just bring me some coffee mayank, that'll make me fine…
The doctor, my old school friend sighed..
"gunjan he is going to be fine I promise u"
"I know he will be fine… thanks mayank ,,, do me a favour more .pls"
"cal di n tell her that I have a clue to this boy's identity.."
"huh??? U know who he is????"
"he is called samrat…"
