We took a taxi and drove to my flat.
"Here it is, thank you so much...again. Mr. krishna. I really owe you something." I smiled and was about to get out of the car, but Mr. krishna jumped out of the car, ran around it, opened the door for me and helped me to get out.
"Firstly: you owe me nothing, secondly: My name is krishna not Mr. krishna and thirdly: if you want to thank me you could give me the honour of going out with me..." I looked shocked at him.
"Oh my god, pratigya! What has happened?! Are you ok?" Poo came running out of the house.
"Its ok, Poo. Im fine." I tried to calm her down, but she was furious.
"Youre fine, Didi? Sure, thats why you have to walk with crutches... And who are you? What are you doing here with my sister?" krishna looked confused at Poo.
"My name is krishna and I brought your sister home." he explained, but Poo was still mad.
"Why is she walking with crutches? Is that your fault? If yes, Ill..." she called, but I cut her off.
"Thats enough, Poo. krishna saved me and was so kind to accompany me home from the hospital." answered tired.
"WHAT?! Hospital?! What the hell..." Poo began to complain, but I only felt tired and exhausted, my ankle hurt, my head was about to explode and I could barely stay awake. Suddenly I felt a little dizzy, everything was spinning and Poos voice sounded like it was far away.
"pratigya? pratigya!" I heard krishna call me, but I couldnt answer. All went black.
I was woken by the sun shining in my face. First I didnt know where I was, but then I recognized my room. I tried to get up, but I as I had forgotten about my ankle, it brought me back to reality in a hurtfull way.
"Ouch!" I called and looked around for the cratches.
"Ah, good morning! How did you sleep?" krishna came in with cup of tea, I looked puzzled at him.
"krishna? What are you doing here?" he smiled at me.
"Well, as you decided to faint in front of your house and your sister was hysterical...I carried you upstairs and calmed your sister down." I was still confused.
"Your sister is ok, shes at the university now and I slept on the couch, as I had promised her to look for you." he explained.
"Oh my god, Im so sorry for causing you so much trouble." I apologised, looking at the ground, but he only giggled.
"Youre not causing any trouble, pratigya. May I call you pratigya?" I nodded shy.
"You are really causing no trouble, believe me. Its really a pleasure to care for you." I blushed.
"But what about you? I mean, you surely have a family and a job. And you should take care of that, not me." He didnt answer. When I looked up at him, he stared out of the window, with I look I couldnt put a finger on. There was so much sorrow in his eyes.
"I...Im sorry if I said something wrong." I apologised, but he shook his head and smiled at me.
"No, you said nothing wrong, really. Ok, you get ready and I make breakfast for us." He handed me my crutches and left the room.
I didnt know why, but there was somethin strange about krishna
We had breakfast together and got to know each other a bit better. He was working as an engineer and lived on his own. That was all I could find out about him.
"But what were you doing in the park and why did you help me?" I asked now, sipping from my tea. He shot me a confused look.
"Well, its obvious why I helped you. I mean, should I have left you with this guy? And I was there because I needed fresh air." I nodded.
"What about you? What were you doing there at that time of night? You must know that its dangerous to go out alone at this time." I looked guilty at him.
"I know, but I just needed to get out. I had a terrible fight with Poo yesterday and...God, she must hate me." suddenly krishna took my hand, which lay on the table and stoke it soft.
"She doesnt hate you, believe me. She was so anxious about you, she nearly killed me because she thought that I did this to you." I looked shocked at krishna as he was still holding my hand.
"Thats Poo... always bubbly."
"She thought it was her fault, because you had that fight and..." I looked suprised at him.
"No, no it wasnt. She can nothing for what has happened!" I called and pulled my hand away.
"What does she think?" krishna looked sympathic at me.
"She also told me about your fight..." I stopped and looked shocked at him.
"She did?" I asked unsure, he nodded. I thought for a moment, but then I got up.
"Well. Thank you so much for your help, but I think its better you go now." I said cold, he looked puzzled at me, but then he nodded and got up.
"Sure. Will you get it?" he asked concerned. I only nodded.
"Yes. Thank you." I walked him to the door.
"I wish you all the best." I said and closed the door behind him, then I sighed deep and tidied up.
