Chapter 4: A Helluva Night
My head was throbbing as I opened my eyes a fraction and took in my
surroundings. As my eyes registered everything around me I noticed a
digital clock on the bedside table - 12:20 am. Wait, this wasn't my
room.....what the heck was I doing here?
And then it all came back to me. The memories flooded my mind now, one
after another they just kept coming - The club with Chiku, the
confrontation between me and Arjun, Arjun talking about a letter.....a
letter he gave to Gauri.
The flow of memories stopped. Gauri.
Of all people, Gauri. I felt hot tears sting my eyes as I turned to
bury my face in my pillow. I wasn't crying for her - she wasn't worth
crying over. I was crying over everything I'd said to Arjun, I'd hurt
him so much, yet he....he'd only cared for me.
Arjun - where was he? I
needed to find him. He must be around here somewhere...I couldn't think
of another reason as to how I could have possibly gotten here. I got up
- a little too quickly - and regretted it as my head started to throb
again. I sat up against the headrest and put my head up against the
wall. I waited a little while to get my head steady before I got up.
That was when I began to hear the shouting. There was a loud crack and
I heard someone scream Arjun. I panicked as I got off the bed and ran
out of the door. There was a faint light coming from down the hallway
and I ran there as quickly as I could.
"Arjun!", I shouted, panicking at the thought of him being hurt. As I
burst into the room, I saw that it wasn't Arjun I needed to be panicking
about - it was Sanchit. Arjun had him up against the wall in a position that looked anything, but comfortable.
"Arohi, it's Sanchit's fault", Shefali started, but Simi silenced her with a look.
A resounding crash echoed around the room as Arjun let go of Sanchit and he fell to the floor. Arjun looked at me and I felt the tension between us escalate. He seemed so hesitant, as if he wasn't sure what to say...as if he wasn't sure I'd believe him. I'd done that to him. I'd never trusted him. As I looked at him then I realized, I didn't care about the world, I only cared about Arjun. He was the only one that mattered. I couldn't hurt him anymore. I couldn't, I wouldn't - I thought angrily of Gauri-throw away what was between us. I ran towards him and gripped him in a hug as my eyes welled up with tears and spilled over once more.
" I'm S-s-s-o-r-r-r-y," I cried into him, my voice choking with tears.
"Arohi," he whispered as he gently put his arms around me, "It's alright, shhh".
I looked up at him. I wanted to tell him everything, but I couldn't find the words. How do you tell someone that they mean the world to you? That you'd give up everything for them? How could words possibly convey what I felt for him?
As I looked into his deep chocolate brown eyes and saw that they were laced with only his love and concern for me, I couldn't help, but blurt out "I love you, Arjun".
His face broke into a smile as he whispered " I love you too, Arohi".
"Wooooooooooooot!", Shefali screamed, standing up on her chair, with one hand on her hip, she turned to face Sanchit and said, "What did I say? What?! You wanted proof, you have proof, now you dare do anything..." she blackmailed him, pointing at her cell.
Woah. I had to admit, Shefali had her own unique way of doing things, alright.
hmmm, this fic is gonna be harder than I thought. I'm really sorry for the late update, but lately I was faced with exams and writer's block. I hadn't really been able to think of anything to continue this with. I have a slight idea for the plot line ahead, but does anyone still want me to continue this story?
