Is this heaven?? "Are you crazy girl?!" a guys voice said. She looked at the guy and saw that he was quite handsome. Actually, he was beautiful. He came to take me away... Gudbye World! She was happy and smiled. "Have you come to take me away from this world??" The guys face turned into confusion, "What do you mean?" She stopped smiling and tried to stand but realized her body was numb, so she said," Who are youu?!" His face showed anger and confusion,"Damn girl! I just saved your life!" She was going to answer him back when she thought about what he had said, What the helll!! People won't let me die peacefully either! "Why the hell would you do that??!"She screamed. The guy said," Now, I am so sure you are crazy!" She was so angry she didnt say anything. She tried to sit up and managed a little on herself before going down, but the guy's hands steadied her and held her on place. He said, " My name is Raj, girl." She didnt say anything and shivered although the room was warm. He noticed that and gave her his jacket. "The life is too important to just throw it away, girl. No problem is so big that it cant be solved." She looked at him and nodded. "Nice to hear your philosophy. Care to tell me where the hell am I??" The guy shot her a look and said,"Ofcourse, you are at my home! duh." W*H?? Does he have anything in mind?? "Look, thanks for saving my life, but I have to go now." She said hurriedly. He caught her hand and said, "You need to sleep and then worry about everything in the morning." He pushed her a little toward the bed. She didnt have the energy to fight him and so she sat on the bed. She would go when he leaves. He didnt leave. "Go to sleep, girl" He said. She gritted her teeth and pretended to sleep, but the sleep really came as her head touched the pillow. She slept wonderfully. In the morning, she opened her eyes and noticed her surroundings. Everything was so big. Just like a palace. How did I end up here?? But then everything became clear and she realized this was her savior's home. She suddenly grew angry at herself. How can I give up on life?! She made a plan of not returning home and renting an apartment and living her life. That sounded good. Someone knocked on her door and the guy came who had saved her life. "Finally, you are up." he said. She looked at him and saw that he was more beautiful than the night before. He looked wonderful and smelled wonderful. What was his name?? Ron? Sam? Raj?? Raj!! Yupp Rajj! "Whats time is it ?" she asked. "Its almost 2 in the afternoon," Raj said. She looked at him in shock and said "Why the hell didnt you wake me up!?" He smiled and said, " 'Cuz you looked a little sane while sleeping." She was going to answer him back but then she smiled at the joke and said," Thanks for helping me last night. I wasnt thinking right." He noded his head."I need to go now" she said. Disappointment flashed on his face and he said reluctantly ," Alright, but we will meet again right?" She smiled and noticed that she liked him a little now, but not enough to trust him, "Sure, we will meet later." He smiled widely and nodded. As she was getting ready to go, he asked," Oh by the way, whats ur name??" She smiled apologetically and said," Ooopss sorry! My name is Imaan." He nodded and told her that it was a beautiful name. She smiled and walked out the house. She had never been more happy in her life. She kept smiling the whole day because she realized she was independent now. I will do great things in life. She promised herself.--------- HeyyYYYYyyy everyonee!! This is my first attempt at writing a short storyy.. hoped you all liked it! =)

She wasn't breathing. My heart tore as I screamed her name. I could feel pain as I shouted - a pain that pulled from deep inside of me. I could almost feel it trying to kill me from the inside out. I had to make sure that I kept it locked away and focus on the life withering away in my arms.
I tried to find a pulse, fumbling through her wrist, never finding one. Then, I tried CPR for the first time in my life - for my life. I whispered her name with each push on her chest. Did I make it to 100 per minute? I still don't know - I didn't count.
She gasped and opened her eyes - for a moment too brief. But I could tell from her eyes that she was afraid. Afraid of death? No! She was afraid of me - her eyes couldn't see me in pain, regardless of what she was going through. I know that if it would have been in her hands, she would be up and about in no time - just to see the happiness return to my eyes.
"Sweetheart, you'll be fine, okay baby?"
She just nodded. That's what she has been doing since then. The doctors admitted her to the ICU when her respiratory system didn't respond to the treatments. Before leaving her side, I told her that she was going to be fine. She nodded again.
Two days later, she was shifted to a private room. She had regained consciousness after 15 hours. I really don't know why, but I was angry with her - really angry. Anger gave me strength to fight my emotions - stop my tears. I scolded her when she told me that she was feeling sleepy. She held my hand to her chest and cried - her tears complaining about my rudeness - my heartlessness. She didn't sleep.
She wanted to eat ice-cream and chocolates. I scolded her again, gently this time, promising that she would gets lots of chocolates when she came back home. She smiled. She didn't whine for chocolates again.
"You are upset."
I was reading MKRM on my lappy.
"Of course I am. You've just given Armaan four hours to live."
"Why do you read the death-scene when it upsets you so much?"
"It is not a death-scene. It's a life-scene. Armaan will survive against all odds. There'll be a happy ending to this scene."
"Yes, because it's just a story."
I knew what she was heeding to. I didn't want to listen so I turned my attention back to MKRM.
"Will I survive too?"
"You are getting better. The doctors will discharge you soon."
I didn't have the courage to lie blatantly, so I told her my well-rehearsed lie - a lie that I had told her so many times that it actually seemed far more convincing than the harsh truth - even for me.
"I am going to die."
She wasn't asking me, just telling. Her innocent eyes were set carefully upon me. Her hands were playing with the ring in my finger. Her mehendi was still dark, though it was going to be almost two weeks since our wedding. She continued.
"There will be no happy endings for us."
I lost my temper again that day. Tears were streaming down her face but I couldn't feel them. I could feel the sting of my tears in my eyes but it didn't matter. I wanted her to believe my lie. I wanted her to be strong. I wanted her to live. I lied to her again and again, telling her she was fine. She didn't believe me but she nodded each time I assured her. I couldn't meet her eyes after that.
Today, she knows everything. When I went and hugged her, she pushed me away and looked into my eyes. I couldn't breathe.
I kissed her forehead. She kept crying.
"I'll die. You know that!"
"You won't! That's all I know!"
"Don't lie to me!"
"I'm not lying to you!"
"You are! To me and to yourself!"
"YOU ARE GOING TO BE FINE."
I had yelled at the top of my voice. Her parents, the doctor and the two nurses rushed inside on hearing the shout. The doctor did a customary check-up while her father placed a hand firmly on my shoulder.
"Come with me, Adi."
I shrugged off his hand roughly - rudely. I didn't want anyone to calm me down. Anger was my strength.
"I'm alright. I want to talk to her."
I wasn't trying to be rude. I really didn't think there was anything wrong with me. No one protested.
The doctor warned me and left. Others followed him. I moved towards the bed when I heard her speak.
"I don't want to talk to you."
I sat down on the bed and took her left hand in mine. Her face was expressionless.
"I would love to do the talking today for a change."
She finally showed a hint of expression. She scowled. I smiled. She turned her face away.
"Do you know how much I love you?"
She didn't answer.
"You can just say yes or no."
"Do you love me too?"
"Then I want you to believe me when I say that you are going to be fine."
She slowly turned her head and aligned her gaze to mine. I looked away.
"I want you to be fine. I can't lose you. You're the only one I have."
She took my hand to her lips and kissed it. Her lips were warm and soft - a sign that she was alive. My lies seemed true enough. She was going to be fine.
"I would always be there for you - dead or alive."
"You will take care of everyone, won't you? You've got to be there for them."
"I will be where you are."
"You've got to live Adi."
"I will live, and so would you."
She was looking intently at me. I turned my gaze away.
"You are going to be fine."
She smiled. I wasn't expecting that. I closed my eyes and inhaled deeply. I thought she had believed me again.
"Look into my eyes and repeat what you just said."
"Look into my eyes and speak Adi. Make me believe you."
Her voice plagued me as I opened my eyes. The pain was killing me, and I could feel my heart thumping in protest. I took deep breaths and waited for my breathing to pace down before I reached out and touched her face lightly. My anger couldn't help her survive. My love would.
"You will be fine. I promise."
She smiled and nodded.
"I will live for you."
She indicated the rings gleaming in our entwined hands.
"Your promises are mine to keep."
Writing this story, I know she will help me keep my promise. She will live. We will have our happy ending for sure. But, of course, that will be quite another story! Right now, my life is waiting for me, so, excuse me.
