Sealed with a Snowflake
m sorry rey , but I don't think we are meant to be . sorry . you were
one of my best friends . I hope we stay that way forever . thankyou for
coming in my life . it's a goodbye . " and with that she turned on her
heels and walked away from him .
world was shaken . he was devasted . his proposal was plainly rejected
by the only girl he loved . he had nothing to say to her so he simply
let her go with a silent promiseto love her till his last breadth .
An year later . . .
was pacing to and fro in front of a small yet pretty house . it was yet
another Christmas eve . the same day and time on which he had been
deprived of love . he was waiting for someone desperately . finally that
person arrived after hell lot of time unknown of rey's presence . that
person started walking away unmindful of the silent stalker behind them .
they both crossed many petite lanes , buildings , offices , parks ,
churches and what not . rey was getting restless . he just couldn't take
it anymore and burst out , " won't you confess this year ? " the person
stopped abruptly . rey hadn't realized that they were alone by now and
were almost on the last street with only a church as surroundings . the
person thought they might be dreaming things and was about to move when
rey re ' questioned , " answer bhi nahi dogi ? " the person turned to
face rey and could only utter a single word , " tum ? " Rey , " haan
mein . kabse wait kar raha hoon . its almost Christmas now . why
haven't you gone to any church today ? abhi tak to tumhe ghar mein hona
cahiye tha waiting to open ur presents . then what are you doing outside
at this time without even worshipping today ? bolo ! " the person was
hell shocked ! they had never imagined rey to be here that too with so
much information about them ! wait a minute ! INFORMATION ? ? ? how did
this happen ? directly a question was thrown at him , " how do you know
all this ? " Rey ' " who actually . . . actually pichle char saal se tum
yahi karti ho ! aaj nahi kiya toh mein ghabra gaya , isiliye poocha and
in sabhi ki wajah se toh tumse pyaar hua tha ! " "what ? iska matlab ki
tum mujhe stalk kar rahe the ? " "stalk nahi kriya who actually hua
yoon tha ki . . .
Four years back '
was mid afternoon on the christmas eve ! rey was one of the carol
singers in the church . everyone had gone home and he was just taking
his belongings to leave when all of a sudden a girl burst in out of
nowhere and started talking rather confessing to jejus about all the
things in the world . she didn't even stop for a minute , completed her
confession , wished him Christmas and again ran away . rey was taken
aback by this sudden entry of the girl and decided to follow . she then
went to a mall for last minute shopping *girls* and then rushed home for
the evening dinner and her gifts . rey had been following her from
church itself but she was too excited to notice this . every year it was
a routine for rey to follow her like this .
YEARS LATER , however , they met accidently . rey was rushing in order
to reach church on time so that he could she her on the only day of the
year and she was running as she was a bit late from her schedule and BAM
! both bashed into each other right in front of the church . both where
taken aback by this sudden meet of theirs . Slowly they both exchanged
greetings and wishes . She rushed in , confessed and came out to find
Rey waiting for her at the door . they both exchanged their goodbyes as
for her he was still a stranger . little did they know that this meeting
was going to be so important in their lives . slowly -2 they met
casually atcoffee shops and started talking day and nights about each
and everything . they started sharing eachothers's life . but hell broke
loose when rey proposed her and asked her to reply on the coming
christmas eve . she wasn't ready for a relationship andwas scared to
loose such a good friend so she had plainly rejected the proposal .
still he had waited for her at the same church today so that he could
see her after whole one yearbutwas tensed not to find her and had
finally reached her house to check if she was ok or not . but shw never
knew that rey had known so much about her . she was touched by his
BACK TO PRESENT !
- " so here's the reason of me being here and knowing everything . am
sorry agar tumhe yeh galat laga ho but mein khudko rokh nahi paya .
pyaar jo karta hoon tumse . tumhari baatein sune bina reh nahi sakta tha
toh dauda chala aata tha . i no sunna nahi cahiye tha but usi baaton se
toh pyaar karta tha . m soory again . and now that i no ki tum theek ho
mein chalta hoon . " with that he turned around and started to walk
away only to be stopped by her voice . " itna pyaar karte ho mujhse ?
itni chinta karte ho meri ki itni dur se sirf mujhe dekhne aate the or
kabhi kaha bhi nai . kyon rey , kyon ? jab mene tumhe tuhkra bhi diya
tab bhi mujhe dekhne , mera haal jaanne aa gaye . kyon karte ho mujhse
itna pyaar ? kyon ? " she was about to break down when rey held her
possessively in his arms . she came out of his arms , took his hand in
his and tooh him inside the church near the idol . the moment they
reached their , she let go of him and started her confession .
dekha aapne . meine kaha tha ki yeh mujhse bohot pyar karta hein . yeh
kuch bhi karke aayega aaj ke din . ise lagta hein ki sirf yeh mujhe
dekhta tha , mein nahi . huh . koi baat nai . well , aap haar gaye . mom
ke operation ke waqt meine kaha tha ki isse dur ho jaungi hamesha ke
liye par aapko mom ko theek karna padega . mom toh rahi nai ab aur
aapne apna wada poora nahi kiya . par maine kiya . mom aane se rahi toh
sorry but m goin bak to him . usi ki wajah se aapse ek saal se mili nai
hoon and usi ki wajah se aaj aapko wish kar rahi hoon , MERRY CHRISTMAS
TO YOU JEJUS ! and bye . baadmein milte hein par rey ke saath hi aaungi
warna kabhi nai . aage aapki marzi . "
that she strode out followed by a bewildered rey . he never knew that
he was noticed or taken account of . moreover he never knew that kriya
loved him the same way that he did . he was confused rather than being
happy . he questioned her shocked , " ummm kriya , yeh sab tumne abhi jo
kaha woh " , " sab sach hein ya nai yahi na ? well yeh sab sach hein
rey . jis din hum pehli baar mile the mujhe tumse usi din pyaar ho gaya
tha , par himmat nahi hui ki tumse yeh kahoon par meine tumhe mujhe
follow karte hue dekha . mein jaanti thi ki tum nahi cahate ki mujhe
pata chale toh meine kabhi jataya nahi .mein yeh bhi jaanti thi ki tum
meri saare baatein sunte the or mein bhi wantedly tumhe saari baatein
sunati thi . saayad god ko yeh pasand nahi tha or isiliye mom ka
accident karwa diya coz mein sabse close unhi se thi . unhe theek
karvane keliye meine tumse dur jaana manzoor kiya parbhi unhone mom ko
mujhse cheen liya . mein god se naraz thi aur isiliye peechle ek saal se
kabhi unse milne nahi gai . meine unse kaha tha ki jab tum aaoge tabhi
aaungi . n c u r here . toh aaj waapis tumhare saamne hi confess kiya
but tumhe nahi . so here it is . I LOVE YOU REY ! i love you a lot . am
sorry ki ek saal tak tumhe dur rakha aur tumhe accept nahi kiya . m sry .
please forgive me . "
didn't know how to react . he was more than happy . he just scooped her
in his arms , lifted her of the ground and twirled her while yelling I
LOVE YOU KRIYA , I LOVE YOU TOO ! finally he brought her down and cupped
her face . "pagli" , he spoke , " mujse ek baar keh kar toh dekthi ,
itna pyar karti thi phir bhi dur chali gai , jhali ! agar kabhi waapis
aise karne ki sochi bhi na toh mein ma... " before he could complete
kriya shut his mouth with her palm and nooded her head in negotion
furioushly ! rey chuckled at her action . " ok nahi bolunga . happy ? "
she nodded a yes . " so , with me ? forever ? " the moment she said yes
the clock struck 12 symbolising christmas ! they both hugged each other
tightly forgetting the world . finally rey pulled back and cupped her
face qns slowly inched forward . kriya understood his actions and closed
her eyes in anticipation . the moment their lips were about to touch a
snowflake came in between themand disturbed their private moment . they
both pulled back and looked up to see god blessing them with the shower
of snowflakes . both smiled at the sky and then got back to complete
what they had started with snowflakes falling on them continously . but
whatever happens , they always remember that their first kiss was sealed with a snowflake !
Entry # 2
Under The Mistletoe
"Ho ho ho' Rise and shine my deary. Its Christmas eve."
"What so merry about this Christmas?"
Kria snorted as she tried to grab back the pillow which Sharon took from her to wake her up.
is merry about the Christmas except for u. Now come on wipe that sulk
away or u won't receive any gift from St. Nicholas babes."
winked leaving a highly annoyed Kria behind her. Kria willed herself
out of the bed so that she could begin the day. She had become this
fussy old lady who cribbed at any occasion. She hated this but just
couldn't help it.
What had happened to her? - she often thought.
And the next second she knew the answer - Reyansh Singhania happened to her.
God - how she hated him'
But who was she kidding - every freaking thing reminded her of him and she felt so embittered about it.
Her fashion house - The Opulent - had been his making.
He was the mastermind behind the marketing of the clothing range she had launched.
He was the sole reason that she had such a competent staff.
So how the hell was she supposed to just forget about him?
had been 5 years and she still wasn't over that wretched existence. She
still would mope about him. They were 2 strong headed individuals - so
when they announced their love in public everyone was wary. Their close
friends pointed it out to them but they believed they could work it out
but in the end it didn't. When their interests started clashing neither
of them relented and then it ended.
She just wished that he wasn't having an easy life. If she couldn't then he didn't have any right to.
She was so right about it - Reyansh Singhania himself wasn't having an easy life and he was wishing the same for her.
just banged the file shut. He was hell frustrated. It was Christmas and
he was reminded about her as he was going through the events his
company was gonna organize on the occasion of Christmas. He owned an
Event Management Company - not just any - the leading one which was
spread worldwide. Everyone appreciated how he had single-handedly did
everything but he knew better.
The maneuver of his success was someone else.
It wasn't his idea to include festivities in the prospectus.
Neither it was his plan to enroll people from all walks of life to garner the ethical applaud.
Nor it was his design to make a team just responsible to authenticate the festive celebration.
And he hated this feeling that he owed it to her and that she still was and will remain an integral part of his life.
"Seriously Shar... Mistletoes???"
looked at her best friend as if she was an alien. Sharon had come to
decorate her house and had stayed overnight for the work. She didn't
want her friend to skip the occasion so she hadtaken upon the job to get
her all set for the Christmas. Kria couldn't believe that the
decoration was gonna include a bunch of mistletoes and this irked her.
Mistletoes had memories attached which made her all the more fuss about
"Stop giving me the looks and just help me with the decorations."
Sharon stated ignoring her friend's snorting.
"U have gotta be kidding me."
said as he looked flabbergasted over the surroundings. This time the
church had chosen a specific decorating item for the festival as the
theme - Mistletoes and the entire Town Square was elegantly decorated
using it. It opened his old wounds.
under the Mistletoe - a ritual which ensures a long happy life for the
couple. They had shared their first kiss under it. It was beautiful and
magical - a reminiscence but now a reason for Christmas aversion.
Rey shook himself out of the memory flashes and indulged himself in the atmosphere that bloomed around him.
Kria brushed the memory away and started putting the trinkets over the tree.
gathered around the town square for the celebration. The place was
beautifully lit. A big mistletoe bush was held over in the center while
everyone was in the Christmas mood. Kria walked amongst the crowd
looking for Sharon and bumped into someone. As she faced him she got the
shock of life - Rey was standing there in front of her. She was
flabbergasted but couldn't help noticing the manly features that had
enhanced over the 5 years. He had grown muscular but still maintained
the aura. The flicks that covered his forehead gave him an appealing
look. The chest that showed off from the top of the shirt invited her.
She hated how he was still able to just dazzle her away.
Rey moved in the crowd he bumped into someone rather some girl to say.
As he faced her he stood rooted there at the spot. Kria Ghai stood in
front of him looking as radiant as ever in that red silky flawlessly cut
dress that reached till her knees. She was wearing a red and white fur
coat with the santa hat on that made her look like a cute yet sexy
santa. The coat was open and he was able to see how the dress
complimented her curves and appealed him. Those straight raven black
locks made her look more delectable. Rey chided him out of his reverie
irritated over how his eyes were treating themselves.
"How are u?"
asked at the same time as the silence was getting awkward for them.
They looked at each other in disbelief. Rey gestured her to speak.
"I am fine. U?"
"Me too. Hows business?"
"Great. We r the leading fashion house. U?"
silence returned. They couldn't just walk away after being aware of the
other's presence. Soon the clock struck 12 indicating the arrival of
the day. Everyone rejoiced and wished each other with zeal and
enthusiasm. Soon it was announced that according to the Christmas
tradition people standing under the mistletoe had to kiss. The
spotlights started flashing over the couples standing under it and
before either of them could comprehend anything a spotlight was focused
on them. They never realized that they were standing in the center and
before they could move everybody had turned their attention towards
them. They looked at each other clearly awkward due to the situation coz
nevertheless they had to do it. Rey hesitantly moved his hand to hold
her waist. Kria wasn't able to meet his eyes and was constantly avoiding
his gaze. Rey held her close and coyly she looked in those hazel pair
of eyes that had charmed her always and didn't fail to do so this time
too. Rey cupped her face by his other hand and slowly brought her face
closer to his and slowly their lips met.
was a soft kiss through which their emotions penetrated. It was a
gentle and a soothing one mixed with the soft caress and concern that
had once lived in them and now was locked in some corner. As they broke
the kiss and stared in each other's eyes they found the same emotions
that defined them 5 years back and now hovered over them. Both of them
realized what it meant and decided to start over. They didn't need
words. They understood the other's heart. As Kria took hold of his hand
Rey grasped hers firmly reciprocating the gesture and Kria guided him to
her place. As they got inside Rey quickly gathered her to give a heated
kiss as they moved inside. As Rey parted away both of them mumbled
They laughed as they spoke out loud and then kissed each other slowly savoring each moment. Rey spoke then.
"So'. Under the Mistletoe?"
"Definitely under the Mistletoe."
Kria answered chuckling as they realized that they were again standing under the bush.
Kria shifted in her sleep as her phone buzzed. She adjusted not disturbing Rey as she took the call.
"Merry Christmas to u too."
"Looks like St. Nicholas gave u ur Christmas present."
"Yes babes. Nicholas definitely did give me my present."
Kria chuckled before switching off the phone.
Rey asked sleepily as he woke up while Kria was talking.
"My secret Santa."
Kria answered winking before taking his lips into hers.
"So will he give me a present too?"
Rey asked as Kria laid across his chest facing him.
"Ask and see."
"Okay then'. So will someone do the honor of gracing my life forever and ever?"
Rey slowly asked gauging her expression.
"Well' that someone can do the honor if'."
Kria said slowly as she moved towards his ear.
"If that someone is promised to be kissed under the Mistletoe always on the Christmas Eve."
"Well that can be done."
Rey twitched his nose before taking Kria into a kiss to mark the promise.
Entry # 3 KriyAnsh OS- Happy New Year
Mumbai, St. Loius College, Atrium-
"And listen, I want all the arrangements to be done perfectly' koi
problem nahi honi chahiye, warna AVP ma'am hum sab ki band baja degi' u
knw na bhai' waise bhi, she's such a stickler for perfection'"
Nilesh: "Chill Taani... sab kuch control main hain!"
Vicky: haan' Aur waise bhi, AVP ma'am ke haatho se marna acha ki hum khud zeher khake mar jaaye'
NiCky hi-5 each oder while others giggle' but soon, Taani comes back to her hyper-mode'
Taani: "aur yeh Rey' Rey kahan hain bhai?"
The gang's faces' fall bcz they know how important today's day & date is for Rey.
Taani: mein kuch poonch rahi hu' Rey kidhar hain?
Nil: Woh aaj New Year's hain na'
Taani: Haan... toh?
Swayam: toh' aaj ke din' in fact, poora yeh last week of December' Rey, hibernation mode main chala jata hain'
Taani: hibernation mode' par kyun?
Vicky: Kyunki, aaj ke din hi toh Kriya aur Rey ne sabke saamne apna relationship "OFFICIAL" kar diya tha'
Neha: haan, aur usske theekh 2 1/2 years ke baad, un dono ka break-up ho gaya tha' straight 14th feb ko!
Simmi: haan' aur issi wajah se woh apna bday bhi nahi celebrate karta hain'
Vishakha: aur naa kisi ko karne deta hain!
Taani: Par kyun?
Vishakha: Silly, kyunki ussey Kriya ke saath spend kiya hua har ek moment yaad aata hain'.
Right! & also, woh Kriya ka bday bhi nahi celebrate karta' aur
issliye, woh inn 4 occassions par- Kriya bday, Valentines day, apna bday
& New Year's ke time, apne "dukh wale sad", hence "hibernation
mode" par chala jata hain!
Amar: Haan' hum sab toh phil (phir) bhi
manage kal lahe (kar rahe) hain' pal (par)... woh abhi tak, Kriya ke
jaane se move on nahi kal (kar) paya hain'
Bharat: haa! Kriya ke
college chodne ka, apun ko bhi bahut gussa aur gham hain! Par woh... who
aaj bhi puraani cassette ki tarah "Kriya, Kriya" kare ja raha hain!
Taani: OH! Toh Rey kahan honge abhi?
Rinni: Pata nahi! Bas itna pata hain, ki woh har saal, issi week Dehradun chala jata hain!
Chalo guys' party ki preparations karni hain' lets leave fast! N Taani,
dnt wrry! Rey ka kaam' Nil & Vicky kar lenge'.
Rey had already reached the disco where he n Kriya first met. He got
out of his car & stared at the name of the disc- "CLUB DESTINY". He
chuckled at the irony of the name- it was destiny that made him meet
Kriya yet it was not destiny bcz of which Kriya & Rey split; it was
bcz of 3 ppl- Smriti (Kriya's mom), Shivam & (partly) Kriya
He went inside the club & sat on a chair near the bar,
asking the bartender for his usual- whisky with a hint of gin on the
He always wondered- if Kriya had really, truly loved him, had
faith in him & had trusted him, then he & the gang would've
figured out something to convince Smriti aunty' But the problem was not
just that! The problem also was, that Smriti auntie's memory was like
that of a computer- one look at Rey & she knew that Rey was the guy
whom she saw at the jail on 31st Dec 2010! And that was it'
though on Kriya's insistence, Smriti gave a chance to understand Rey
better & thankfully, her POV regarding Rey was changing a bit' she
came 2 know that Rey came from a broken family so he knew the pain of
losing a parent (just like Kriya's father abandoned her & her
mother, Rey's mom died after giving birth to Rey); came 2 know that for
Rey, his friends are more than his family to him & could do anything
for them' but with this, she also came 2 know that just like Kriya, Rey
also knew how 2 dance, was a part of her college dance team just like
her & also wanted to become a dancer' & THAT WAS THE LAST STRAW
FOR HER! She never had a problem with Rey-Kriya relationship' she was
all the more happy to see her daughter happy with the guy whom she
loved; but she had a problem with their passion for dance! Having faced
this situation in life due to which Kriya never came to know about her
dad, she didn't want the same thing for her daughter' she could CLEARLY
see that HISTORY CAN REPEAT ITSELF! And before that happens, she knew
that either Rey or Kriya would have to give up on their passion' Since
she "knew" that Rey would never do that, she let her daughter do that'
But then, that would also mean- to sacrifice Kriya's love for Rey, her
dance, her friendship which meant the most for her'.
Smriti knew that
Rey was a great guy at heart, that he would be willing to risk his
friends & family for her, but with this, she also knew that he would
never let go off his passion- HIS DANCE, JUST to have a girl in life!
Well, too bad' had she asked him to do so, he would've happily done that
just for Kriya'. Coz, ONLY HE KNEW HOW MUCH KRIYA MEANT TO HIM!
even though Smriti was Kriya's mom, ONLY Swayam & Rey knew her more
than anybody else alive on the face of the earth. Both of them knew
that whatever she said on the 14th of Feb 2012 to Rey was
false'. To the rest, she was a selfish, ungrateful bitch who took Rey's
popularity to make herself look popular, but to THEM, she was this
obedient daughter to her mother, the best friend to Swayam & the by
far, the best thing that could've ever happened to Rey in his life!
their last day & date together, they promised each other that they
will try n move on in their lives but not forget each other & as a
token of remembrance, they gave each other a picture of a moment so
special to them that will remain etched in their hearts forever.
EXACTLY AT 12 0'CLOCK---
St. Loius Gang- HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!!
*taking out THE picture from the inside pocket of his jacket, caressing
Kriya's face from his fingers & kissing her face*: I STILL LOVE
YOU KRIYA! Sorry ki pichle 2 yrs se move on nahi kar paa raha hu' kya
