~ Chapter Three ~
to some parts are in blue.
for all the comments. They really help me to write better. Here is
Chapter Three. As I mentioned, this chapter will just briefly introduce the character Sanskar.
The real story will start in the next Chapter, when Riddhima meets Armaan =D Till then, just bear with me xD
.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~.-~ Riddhima quickly got out of the taxi and started running. However she could not take big steps nor run fast due to her physical structure ; she was just very petite. Before she knew it, there was a thunderstorm and now she is starting to get all wet.
What do I do...I don't even know this place and where do I go...God please help me. I only have you with me now.
Suddenly headlights beamed onto her face and she had fallen unconscious after the car had hit her.
" Where am I ?!?! Help me..Please..." Riddhima screamed.
" Shhh.. It's OK Ms.Gupta, you are safe now." said Sanskar ; almost a whisper.
She rubbed her eyes and found herself on a bed with a man and an old lady.
Who are they? And how did I get here?..
" Ms. Gupta.. I had a small accident with you last night, but what were you doing there? And why was that man after you?" Sanskar asked curiously.
" He was the driver...Nowadays you can't trust anyone.. How can I thank you... But who are you and how do you know me? " Riddhima said suddenly realizing that Sanskar knew her last name.
"Oh I'm your colleague. Professor Khan told me about you and I'm here to help you with anything." replied Sanskar.
Riddhima widened her eyes and observed him. He looked very honest and nice. His chocolatey eyes were sincere and had that innocent twinkle in them.
" Thank you so much Mr. Uh..." She paused and looked embarrassed as she still didn't know his name.
" You can just call me Sanskar" He replied with a smile.
Awhh...His smile is really sweet. Thank god that such people still exist on Earth.. After that horrible experience it's just so hard for me to trust anyone...
" Kaha kho gayi Ms.Gupta ?" ( Where are you lost? ) He continued after the long silence.
" Nothing...Oh and please call me Riddhima." She said with a friendly expression on her face.
"OK...Riddhima, this is Manju kaki, if you need anything, please feel free to ask her. I'll bring you to the college tomorrow as you need some time to get over the shock." Sanskar said realizing from Riddhima's expression that she might not be over the terrible night.
" Thank you Sanskar...Main tumhara ye ehsaan kaise..." ( How can I ...Your favour ) Riddhima said quietly.
" Shh, that was my duty Riddhima.." Sanskar said looking into her eyes.
I have never seen eyes that dark. Usually I can guess what people feel by looking into their eyes...But with Riddhima...It's just so different... She is so small and cute... I hope the students don't take advantage of her personality...
" Ahem Ahem." Said Manju kaki, breaking their eye-lock and bringing Sanskar back to reality.
" Well take some rest and I'll be back later Riddhima." Sanskar said with his eyes looking away in embarrassment.
What a different person. His eyes tell me that he is so honest. But there is something behind that smile of his. I don't know what...Anyways I better call maa... Or else she will be so worried.
In the boys' hostel room, guys were discussing about the new teacher they were going to meet.
" If she's hot then she's mine, I'm already warning you guys." Rahul said in a firm tone.
" If she's that hot, then detention mein to maza hi maza hai na!!! Hahahaha" Atul laughed.
" Whatever, let's see how she teaches.. We'll make these two months very hard for her!" Armaan mumbled.. " These student-teachers are useless, they can never match good professional teachers! And a girl younger than us, handling our class... IMPOSSIBLE!" He laughed at the thought..
" Anyways...We shall see that tomorrow! I'm very tired now ...Going to bed" Rahul said as he turned off the lights.
I wonder how this new teacher will be like... Riddhima Gupta...Naam to ajeeb hai ( The name is weird ) .. Hope she teaches well.. Armaan thought to himself...
