Hello lovely people!! Firstly, I can't thank you guys enuf for the amazing response to the SS.. Absolutely loved it.. A biiig thank you to everyone who's read, liked and commented on it.. Oh I love the speculations, why's and how's.. Keep 'em coming! I'm not sayin anything.. Here's the next Chapter..Hope you enjoy reading this one..
Riya had stormed out of the room, in a fit of fury, not
caring to bother about her favourite saree having a hole, the size of an orange
in it, by now! She flagged the first cab
that came her way, and got in..
After having directed the driver to take her to her
destination, Riya sighed and rested her head on the backrest. She felt tears
run down her cheeks and a soft sob escape her lips. The cab driver turned back
with concern etched on his face. She nodded gently and asked him to drive on
and that she was fine.. Yes, that's what she was.. just fine!
She got down, paid of the cabbie and walked towards the house.
The rose plants in the garden reminded her of him, again! She threw an angry
glance at her beloved plants, for the first time ever and fumbled in her bag.
Having found the keys, she quickly unlocked the door and banged it behind her
She walked to the couch and flung her bag across the room..
'What the hell does HE think of himself? He thinks he can
treat me like crap, all over again.. Transfering me back to the freakin
research desk? Does he even know what that means?'
After all that has transpired between us for the last two
years, he did this to me?
He knows very well, that I love my job! Its my passion..
That's where I wanted to see myself always, fighting criminals, punching them,
breaking their jaws, solving murder mysteries, helping the society!
But no, ACP
Arjun 'i-care-a-damn' Raute had never really understood her and her ambitions!'
Or maybe he had!
She slumped on the couch and held her head. She saw a
photograph of both of them, taken exactly a year back! She couldn't control
herself anymore and the pent up anger and frustration made its way out, in the
form of hot tears and sobs..
He had to
fight with me! Today.. Today of all days!
She clutched the frame close to her heart and sobbed a
little more, until her tears had dried up and she had no more energy left
within her.. She held the frame with both hands and gazed at it, as her fingers
tenderly moved over the glass..
Why did her life have to be so complicated always!
First her parents wouldn't understand her ambition; they
gave her a tough time leaving her with no option but to leave home. And just
when she thought, she had landed with a Government job, she had been moved to
the ETF as a Research Assistant.. She had spent over three years of her life
analysing data of all sorts; percentages and figures had become a part of her
life, so much that she was fed up with the very job, she had always aspired
And then her hardwork had paid off.. She had been included
as a team member with the ETF core-team. She had been handling her first case,
when she had met him! And since then, her life had never been the same!
arrogant and hot-headed attitude had repulsed her, however she had soon
discovered that the real Arjun had been hiding behind a facade.. He was in
reality, a broken man!
She found herself
being drawn towards him, in a manner, which seemed to be totally
irrational to her. She had often thought over it, their totally opposite
natures, his tragic past, and most importantly, the one-sided nature of her
Only, it took her a while to figure out that it wasn't mere attraction
or magnetic force that pulled her to him, the roots went much deeper..
could feel his pain, her heart yearned to take away all his misfortunes and relieve
him of all his troubles!
And that's when all hell had broken loose!
had realised that she was hopelessly in love with her boss, a man, who cared a
damn about the world!
She had handed over her heart on a platter to him, and
prepared herself to receive sharp stabs in return!
But what she couldn't fathom was what went wrong today?
Everything was just going on fine.. Why then, was he hell bent on distancing
her from himself?? What else could be the reason for him wanting to have her
out of his sight?
Didn't he love her
anymore? Or worse, did he regret it now, after more than a year?, she
shuddered as the thought flashed through her mind.. She shook her head
violently as if to try and get the horrible thought out of her head..
No Riya, he loves you! And you know that!
Yes he did.. he loved me.. But he doesn't love me anymore!
Stop it Riya! Have you
forgotten the day, when you were shot, trying to save his life? He had broken
down completely and confessed his love to you.. Yes, he loves me!
But he hurt me today, he doesn't care!
Do you remember his
white face, when you had gone rolling down the hill a few months back? He had
followed you into the valley, without a second thought, caring a damn about his
He never treated me like a princess..
That's coz you're the queen
of his heart!
She squeezed her head between both her palms and kneeled on
the floor.. Her head was spinning. No..
not again! She had been having these frequent bouts of headaches for more
than a week now!
She was feeling nauseous.. It was the acidity, maybe..
hadn't eaten a morsel of food since yesterday afternoon, worrying herself sick
over his so-called under-cover mission.. And maybe the black coffee, this
morning made it worse.. She ran to the bathroom and relieved herself..
She rinsed her mouth
and looked at her image in the mirror;
She looked like a wreck! Her kohl and mascara had smudged,
leaving black marks on her face.. Her puffy eyes made it even worse...
She had been so excited this morning, having put on his
favourite colour saree, his favourite perfume, the red bindi, which he had
admitted often, made his heart skip a beat!
Why had her life turned upside down then, in a matter of a
She washed her face with soap, and wiped it clean.. Better!
She walked out to the kitchen and poured a glass of water.. Maybe, she needed
to see a doctor.. Oh well, that reminded her, she still had to collect her reports
from the pathology lab.
Arjun had been furious 2 days back, when he had found her
throwing up in the ETF washroom.. He had dragged her to the doctor and demanded
a series of investigations to be performed..
She smiled at the memory!
Everything with this man was extreme.. His love, his anger, his care and his
passion! And she considered herself lucky to be the only person on the planet
to have witnessed and experienced it all..
She gulped the water and sat down on the couch and grabbed
an apple.. She felt a little better..
She glanced at her watch, it was 2:00 pm. What was he up to?
He hadn't even called her once to check on her, if she was fine.. Why was he
doing this to her? Why was he pushing her away?
And before she knew
it, fresh hot tears started flowing down her face..
Her head shot up at the
sound of the door being unlocked!
