Dark Love Story Chapter 20
Note: This update is specially for some of my readers Navina, Payel and Annesha who wanted a romantic update. I don't know how far i could do the justice but ill atleast try my best
Manyata ran as fast as her legs could take her. Her lungs told her that they wanted some rest but it was not affordable. She wanted to make sure that she was out of the danger zone of those spirits, from which, the Kurwaki had released her. She ran and cried at the same time. Everything seemed to be crazy at the moment but it didn't matter more than her life. She entered the cave again from where she had reached the river side and then struggled to get out of the cave almost hurting herself by hitting her delicate body with some sard pointed rock. Blood oozed out of her body but she didn't care, more than running out of the darkness. In a few minutes she managed to be out of the cave but she didn't want to stop untill she made it to her tent and back to her team.
She suddenly got hit by a man who was waiting
a few steps away from the cave, as if just waiting for her to get out of the
creepy cave. He held Manyata tightly and stopped her from running which made
her scream aloud but shortly after that he held her mouth with his hand to stop
her from letting anyone to come their way.She literally shook and tried to
protest as her eyes were shut tight with a fear to see another ghost
captivating her, but his warm voice made her open her eyes suddenly!
"Shhh...its alright manyata, your no
more in that cave. your out of danger now..I will never let anything harm you
again I promise" Uday tried to calm manyata down. He hugged her tight and
his warmth made her feel secured. She wept bitterly and tried to speak while
"They tried...they tried
to...kill"...that was it. He could not hear it anymore. her tears always
made him go weak and here she wanted to narrate how some spirits wanted to kill
He held her mouth again, but this time not
with his hands but with his lips, enclosing her shaky lips which really needed
some care and love at the moment. He kissed her and for the first time it was a
real kiss!. A kiss which healed her of those horrible incidents which had happened
to her some while ago.She didn't protest and returned the kiss with equal
passions. This was definitely Manyata's first kiss, but it was so perfect and
she felt bliss in it. Their lips were almost locked for 10minutes which made
her forget all her mysterious and horrified problems for the moment, untill she
broke it, realising that she was kissing the man, whom she disliked the most in
Uday lowered his eyes as he felt what she felt. Uday/Shaurya had known her from sometime now and he knew what was coming next. All her taunts, blames and swears!...Before she could say something he replied..
"Look I am sorry. My mistake this time..Just wanted to console you but this was wrong i know..I should have not come here may be, but i was worried for you..I'll see that you don't fall in such troubles again, ill tell Natasha to be with you.."
He didn't know what more to say so spoke dis-framed sentences, without looking at her eyes and trying to convince her to stay away from her matters, although he himself was not convinced with it.To his amazement she hit his chest with both her hands, just like Chandralekha did thousand years ago.
He was confused a bit in the beginning but then she started crying again and this time accused him of something which confused him more...
"What do you mean by you should have not come here?..who should have been here then?..who will explain to me about these events and why are they happening to me?.You believe yourself to be a hero?...If yes then why didn't you come to save me from those spirits in the caves..Tum kyu nahi aye mujhe bachane waha un atmao se?...I thought you would come like you always do. Where were you UDAY?...where did you go?...I have got used to your help..." she said sobbing like a child and hugging him tightly which made Uday weakened and he too held her with all his strength and closed his eyes as he felt it like a dream. She actually wanted him to be near her and be there for her...
" Please don't leave me Uday...I have got used to your presence..."...she could not say further as her weeps said it all. But it was time for him to reply and heal her pains...He gave a kiss in her forehead and hugged her back...
"I promise you. I won't make this mistake again. I will never leave you alone again.." ...he kept on saying this and they both closed their eyes and decided to stay in each-other's embrace.
Their voices stopped for sometime as the cool breeze blended with the warmth of their hug did all the needful. Everything seemed to be still at the moment and they forgot about all the worldly affairs. Sharuya never thought he would get such a moment from his crazy, stubborn princess in this place so soon. It was one of the best memories on earth ever since he was born in this century.
After a few minutes they come back to real world, the world that was actually torturing them and storming them with questions that they didn't have answers to..or atleast Manyata didn't have their answers.The moment she came back she broke the hug and looked at him straight into his eyes big brown eyes...
"Wait a minute..Did I call you Uday and not Shaurya?...And did you actually not protest about it?..Who are you?...I need to know Shaurya...Are you Shaurya or Udayveer?..Are you also haunted by those spirits?..because you didn't ask me anything about what i was talking about being tormented by those spirits?...You just bought whatever i said as if you could understand it?...Please don't be quiet like this...I need to know please.." She held his collar and screamed at the top of her lungs.
Vishal thought he reached at the right time, as the matters seemed to grow worse and the wind was no longer cool.
"What do you expect from this bloody Prof Manya?...Lets go before he causes you more harm...Oh my God your bleeding..Did he do this?..you will pay for hurting my Manya Professor..." Vishal shouted at him while he just looked at another side as he could not look at Manyata anymore. He felt like he would weaken any moment and commit a mistake again..He was thinking deeply now that how could he forget that she had called him Uday instead of Shaurya. He shoould have acted like he didn't understand but he forgot everything in the midst of her grieves.
Manyata felt irritated listening to Vishal as he disturbed them when she was about to know the truth.
"Shut up Vishal and just stay out of this! Its none of your business...Prof Shaurya didn't hurt me, he was just assuring me that everything's gonna be fine...So don't over react and behave properly with him..He is our Prof. I am tired, so lets go back and please don't tell anyone about all this that happened here or about my injuries..." saying this she just left both the man speechless and standing there motionless while she made her way back to the tent.
Vishal left too and followed her back to the tent like the vodafone/hutch puppy which he used to watch in the vodafone advertisements in TV and enjoy!!...Shaurya stood there for sometime. He waited for someone whom he knew would arrive soon and yes she did..Kurwaki fumed in anger at Shaurya for being silent and not saying everything to Manyata...
"What do you think you were doing Kurwaki?...why were you trying to scare her with your stupid ideas when you know they are useless?..." Uday spat his words out before she could say something..."
This made Kurwaki more angry.."Ohh really?..you think my ideas are stupid and useless?...What more do you think Yuvraaj ji?...Kindly tel me, but before that let me tell you that I atleast tried to save her from the wrath of the spirits. I mean no harm to her and you know that very well. I am at least trying to make her know the truth but you don't evet seem to try to tell her about yourself!...Why did you not tell her that you are Udayveer and what you want from her?...why don't you tell her everything?...Look Maharaj..even if you try to protect her this is her fate and unless she knows the truth, the dead witches will come for her and eventually she will know everything either from you or from them in their own way...I can't help her everytime. Take my warning seriously and if you don't want i won't appear for her help..." Kurwaki replied and disappeared before he could clear his doubts
After two more days they came back to Mumbai. Manyata stayed most of the time with her friends as she feared to see something again supernatural and she didn't want to risk her life again. But those scenes of Mayong kept on flashing in front of her and all the beautiful time spent there with her friends, with Shaurya and specially those hills and plains of Mayong frequently disturbed her sleep as she used to get up in the middle of the night...One thing that was disturbing her more was Kurwaki's words in the river...words kept on moving in the back of her mind that it was her story and she should not be scared of it. She had to unravel this mystery.
She kept on thinking as in what was the right thing to do. Whether to believe her or not, but deep down she felt like it would be right to follow kurwaki's words and continue searching for the truth. She felt like truth was very near to her and it was she who was failing to see it...With all these worries in her head she finally dozed off to sleep in her soft and comfortable bed.
