Please do tell me if you want me to continue this!
"Damn it!!!", he cursed as the traffic police directed him Towards an alternative road path because there was some construction going on. He glanced at the pouring rain on his windshield. "What the! How can these people be working in the rain? Who are these retards fooling? Dammit...", he said while steering his car into the alternative road.
As he drove down the almost deserted one way street, he finally spotted a van that he could see from a distant corner through the curvy road. "What the!", he swore at the idocracy of the van to not abide traffic rules! But what stunned him more than anything was that the van's door opened and a petite figure with long black hair was thrown onto the corner of the road, while the van's door closed.
And within the blink of the eye, the van disappeared leaving the figure lying on the ground. Arnav's eyes widened and his nostrils flared. He immediately Speeded up to the girl and screeched to a stop. He got out of the car and rushed to her.
She was lying on her stomach when he moved and that's when he realized she was unconscious. He turned her around and saw a pale face adorning the most intriguing features he had ever seen before.For a moment, he forgot everything, the drenching rain, the van, the girl's condition, his need to Rush back home for a videoconference... And when he snapped back, a jolt of uneasiness coursed him.
"Excuse me, can you hear me", he said tapping her cheek trying to wake her up. But she didn't respond. He checked her pulse and was relieved to see it was still bleeding. But she didn't look well. Her hands were icy cold, lips morbid white and her body was burning. His heart started to beat furiously, as his temper started to rise.He sprang her up in his arms immediately and placed her in the passenger seat.
He got in the driver's seat and drove as fast as he could to the nearest hospital. As he lifted her onto the stretcher, he saw that she was clutching onto some papers that wee half drenched. He pried then away from her death grip and put them into his pocket.her well being was more important now.
He saw her getting wheeled into the ER unit and his heart pricked. The girl looked so vulnerable as she lied down on the stretcher. A doctor saw the grave look on Arnav's eyes and came back.
"Don't worry young man! Nothing will happen to your wife", she walked off before giving him an encouraging smile.
Wife? Arnav frowned. He didn't even know the girl. He wasn't even related to her. Heck why was he getting worried for someone else? He was ASR! He didn't feel! Just because a girl's condition made him feel bad didn't mean he was going to let circumstances rule his emotions again.
His hard exterior started to reconstruct itself back. As a good citizen, he brought her to the hospital, that is all there should be in terms of his involvement his head told him. But he couldn't get himself to move even an inch. He decided he would wait till she was conscious, so he went to pay the bill for her treatment.
"Sir what's the name of the patient", the receptionist asked. Arnav frowned, he did not know her name at all. He shouldn't think of leaving her, she was pushed out of a van, who knows who those people were, he should at least inform her people before he leaves. He thought. And the receptionist had already called three times already.
"Sir", she called impatiently when he hadn't responded to her. He just handed out a credit card. She looks at the name on the card and types up Mrs Raizada on the system before finishing the transaction. Arnav studded the receipt in his pocket and started to walked when he felt it slightly damp. That's when he realized he had those papers she was holding onto as if her life depended on it.
He quickly took those papers and unfolded them.
They were legal documents
One was a transfer of property from Khushi Gupta to and he couldn't read the name properly as it was half damp, but the name looked like it had R and T in it.
The second was a divorce paper.
Between Khushi Gupta and Raj Tiwari.It was signed by both parties. The girl's however was a thumb print.
And it was legalized and dated on January 20, 2013.
Which was today.
