Krishna watched in awe as Pratigya glided gracefully out of the enterance of the cafe. She tugged at her scarf which was becoming unruly and getting stuck by the sequences in her dress. How those sequences glistened in the sun.
Pratigya's eyes were fixated on Krishna, who was playing with an empty fork lifted of his full untouched plate. The moment froze. Both were tranqualised. For Pratigya this was a advent moment.. her chance to satisfy her enquiries on the handsome stranger. She wanted to enter his anonymous world. Pratigya had no idea somethings are better left concealed. She had no idea that Krishna wouldn't bare himself very easily. She was going to draw near him..apologise for her uncomprehendable behaviour the last time they met. As strong as her intentions were, her feet wasn't providing the mobility to follow her intentions. They seemed stuck in one place.. likewise Krishna's eyes wouldn't turn from hers. Although meters apart they felt wrapped in each others aura. If this was love, then this was the most beautiful emotion in the world.
Rolly squeezed Pratigya's shoulder urging her forward, which jolted Pratigya and Krishna back to the reality of being two strangers.
Krishna turned away but as soon as he did he turned back towards her helplessly. The young man felt debiliated, unable to move under the spell of this beautiful simple young woman. Her eyes were innocent and harmless .. then why was he feeling so scared of them. There was a definite contingency of falling deep into them.
Chandu and Tunna turned towards Krishna, then slowely followed his stare. The smiles wiped from their face and appetite lost. They stood close almost like they were guarding Krishna against a soul enemy. Krishna couldn't understand their exigency but knew something was surely bothering them.
But this was not the time to be attentive to his friends... this was the time to grasp the opportunity of speaking to the charm caster. For the first time Krishna felt desperate and couldn't understand this vicissitude in him. She was no ordinary person, she was special.
"Abo tum log hatto eeya sey". Said krishna nudging his friends aside.
"No Bhaiya, you can't.. we will not allow it". Cried Tunna. "You don't understand" added Chandu.
The friends argued amongst them.. as Pratigya watched, her moment was lost. The stranger was surrounded in company. She felt numb and insecure.. she lost the confidence with which she was going to approach him.
Krishna snapped at his friends, "Kaa hua salo! bathiy do.. eeh kaa bakaithy hai. Ek kantaap dengey, susrey eeyan giro gey aur haspital mein utto gey!".
Lost and defeated a inflated Chandu replied "Bhaiya ooh Pratigya hai, Pratigya SAXENA!".
Krishna stood in shock, his body froze as a block, with the occasional twitch in his jaw. when he came back to his senses, he turned on his heel towards his bike and with bursting anger rode off, leaving Pratigya and his friends staring after him.
