Khushi looked up at the sound of her name and found the arrogant guy who she bumped into ,standing a foot away from her desk.She raised an eyebrow at him ,questioning him silently .
"A few papers of yours are lying on the ground outside" said Arnav with a glint of mischief in his eyes.
"Couldn't you have brought them with you?" she asked.
"I could have ,but I didnt want to" He replied with a shrug of his broad shoulders.
"Argh" ..How can a person with such an adorable face be sooo irritating.uhhh! Khushi got up to fetch her stuff only to be tripped over by her bag. She steadied herself and left an amused Arnav behind .
She went out and looked for her stuff but couldn't find anything .Giving up she treaded her way back to class.
She knew she was in trouble. There was a stout man behind the teachers desk with a stern look on his face .She cleared her throat
"Excuse me ,Sir"
He looked up from his register and gave her an irritated look.
"being late to your first class,doesnt give a good impression miss..?"
"Gupta" she said.
"yes,Miss Gupta ,take your seat and consider this your first and last warning."
She looked down totally embarrassed to face the class.She went to her seat but found it already occupied .She looked at the irritating guy and asked him to move as she had been sitting there .
"Really? i dont see any of your belongings here new girl." he smirked.
Khushi looked around and hissed "What did you do with my stuff?"
Arnav giving her an amused look "I dont know what your talking about" said nonchalantly.
The Professor looked at commotion unraveling in his otherwise quiet class and interupted their argument.
"Is there a problem?"
khushi: "Sir,he's sitting in my place and he hid my stuff"
She knew she was sounding like a baby complaining.But Khushi couldn't care less. The nerve of this guy she fumed.
Arnav: " i dont know what shes talking about sir.I didn't see any bag around so i sat here."
She was going to yell at him when she was interupted..
"Miss.Gupta,this is a college,you need to carry some books to college,not just walk in like your going to the movies.Now get out of my class and return only when you have some appropriate material with you,OUT" he barked.
Khushi was on the verge of tears,noone had ever yelled at her and she was beyond humiliated.
Seeing this Arnav felt a pang in his heart.He was going to apologize when she turned around and ran away crying.
He couldn't control his guilt .Feeling like scum he looked around at Karan with a helpless face.
"You pushed it bro,poor her and she's so pretty as well" he said with a twinkle in his eyes.
Arnav rolled his eyes at his bestfriend and turned to face the class ,making up his mind to apologize to her as soon as he was out of this class.
Khushi ran straight to the girls loo and cried sitting on a bench.She didn't want to face anyone in that class ,especially HIM.She splashed some water on her face and was walking out of the restroom when she bumped into someone,anticipating a fall again ,she shut her eyes tight.Arnav had caught her waist and pulled her up.He wasn't going to let her fall again .He wasn't going to hurt her. He felt a weird protective instinct towards her. She was so fragile and looked so innocent and helpless.
Khushi opened her eyes to find herself staring into deep honey colored orbs.She realized who it was and pushed him away.
"Don't touch me" she bit at him
"Listen,I'm really really sorry.I didn't think he would yell like that.Here's your bag ,i hid it as a joke.But i guess i went too far.I'm sorry."He said with a guilty face."I'm Arnav Singh Raizada ,btw"
Khushi looked at him with distaste "And I'm not interested"
With a last glare at him she walked away.
Arnav just kept staring at her.No girl ever walked away from Arnav Singh Raizada.Then what was with this girl. This was the second time in one day that she had turned her back on him..
