LOVE HAPPENS <3 CHAPTER 2 THE FRIENDLY GESTURE
"Navya woh main tumhe batane wala tha par mauka hi nahi mila.. jabse ayi ho tabse sab ke beech me ho,isi liye.." spoke Anant finally breaking the silence.
Navya did not speak. she was still under the shock of the news. She looked at Anant with a blank face not knowing what to say.
Anant too was at a loss he did not know what else to tell her. "Tum.. woh... actually, main janta nahi tha chachaji ke gift ke baare me... isi liye problem ho gayi... matlab mujhe pata hota to main... main mana kar deta." spoke Anant with difficulty..
Navya still didn't say a word. She was now looking away from Anant however her expressions were tense.
"Navya.. main mana karna chahta tha par chachaji ko bura lagta aur sab ke beech me main unhe bata nahi saka.. I..I am sorry."
Navya looked up at Anant and saw that Anant looked sorry. " ji woh main.. main samajh sakti hun.." said Navya softly.
Anant smiled at her, relieved that she finally spoke. "Thank you for understanding."
They were both standing and silence prevailed once again. Anant was dead tired and wanted to sleep but coudn't do that,with Navya standing and even declining to sit. He knew Navya was tired too. But he did not know how to ask her to take some rest without involving the bed in it, understanding that Navya became exceedingly nervous and uncomfortable when he mentioned the bed.
"woh tum tired hogi nahi??" asked Anant to Navya
Navya dint say anything but just replied wid a nod.
"Main bhi " said Anant. "ek kaam karo so jao. Kal jaldi uthna bhi hai na."
Navya again replied with a nod. Anant breathed a sigh of relief that Navya did not misunderstand the proposal. "acha to so jate hain. " saying this Anant went to the bed and laid down on the left side. "tum bhi so jao Navya thik hai. main lights off kar deta hun" saying this he switched off the lights.
Navya, however kept standing in her position in the darkness. The idea of sleeping beside a stranger,sharing his bed in his room was not quite appealing to her.
She did not know what to do.First she thought of waking Anant up and telling him that she was uncomfortable to sleep beside him but then she felt that it might upset Anant So she decided to sleep on the Sofa. She went up to the Sofa and laid down on it. But after a while woke up. She was not used to sleep on a sofa. she has been a delicate darling at her home and was missing her room, her bed, her Home. The thought of her Home made her upset and tears rolled down her eyes. She rose from the Sofa and went out to the balcony and saw the full moon in the sky.
She remembered how her Daadi often told her fairy tales in their balcony on full moon nights when she was a child. She couldn't control and broke down completely. she sat down in one corner of the balcony and cried, hugging herself.
Anant woke up hearing the sound of sobbing. He sat up on his bed and looked to his right and saw that Navya was not there. He then noticed that the door to the balcony was open and that Navya was not there in the room.
Navya was still crying when she found a hand on her shoulder. She got scared instinctively and moved away without realizing who it was.
"Main hun Navya, Anant.. Kya hua?? ihaan kyun baithi ho?? ro kyun rahi ho??" asked Anant politely.
"woh main.. woh nahi.. main.." Navya stammered wiping her tears away.
"Ghar ki yaad aa rahi hai??" asked Anant.
Navya didn't say anything but just started crying again failing to control her emotions.
"Navya tum ro mat please. Main.. main janta hun.. tumhare liye yeh sab bohot alag hai, naya hai...mushkil hai.. par please ro mat.. please." said Anant sounding restless. He wanted to console Navya but did not know how.
Navya was still crying. "Main.. main samajh sakta hun ki tumhe kaisa lag raha hoga. Agar yeh mere liye itna mushkil hai jab main apne ghar me ,apno ke beech me hun to phir to tumhare liye yeh aur bhi mushkil hai.. " as Anant said this Navya looked up at him still sobbing.
"Dekho tum.. tum ro mat.. tumhe jo pareshani ho.. jo mushkil ho tum mujhe batana.. main.. main suljhane ki koshish karunga.. par please tum rona mat.. main ladkiyo ko rote hue nahi dekh sakta."
Navya's sobs were subsiding slowly as she listened to her husbands words.
"mujhe pata hai iss tarah kisiko jane bagair uske saath rehna.. bohot mushkil hai.. par hum koshish to kar sakte hai na. pati-patni nahi to dost to banhi sakte hain.. haina??" said Anant.
Navya was listening to him intently and in the process had stopped crying. Anant smiled at her and said "To kya khayal hai hum dost ban sakte hain kya ma'am??"
Navya nodded in a yes after a while.
"Hmmm.. so lets shake hands and be friends officially," Anant said putting his right hand forward. Navya thought for a second before taking his hand.. "soch kya rahi hai ma'am?? kya main apka dost ban sakta hun??"
Navya slowly put her hand forward and shook hands with him. Anant smiled at her and for the first time eversince Anant had met her ,Navya smiled back at him.
As they finished with deir handshake Anant bend towards Navya. Navya became conscious and moved backward. But Anant did not move away. He came closer to Navya only making her nervous. He was looking into her eyes and such was the impact that Navya forgot to back off.. Anant wiped away Navya's tears and said "tum roya mat karo bilkul achi nahi lagti. "he then moved back and said "ab chalo sojate hain. Raat bohot ho gayi hai.. chalo"
Navya rose and followed Anant into the room. This time too Anant went to the bed and laid down and Navya kept standing.Anant saw Navya standing and asked her "Kya hua? sona nahi hai kya??"
"woh main kahan..."
"kahan matlab?? ihan bed pe.." again Anant gave an obvious answer only to realize Navya was uncomfortable.
He woke up and went upto Navya and said "daro mat Navya." in an assuring manner. "chalo chal ke so jao."
Navya was still feeling awkward yet the new found friendship with Anant made her believe her husband or rather her friend.
As the sun's rays peeped into the couple's room.. someone knocked at their door.. "Navya.. darwaza kholo beta der ho rahi hai"
