Fate-Mate 37

 

Readers, thank you so much for being with me and Fate-Mate- both for this long. I appreciate your patience and faith in me and this story. I know I am updating after a very very long time, my sincere apologies for that.

 

Too much has happened within past year since I updated last. From this story being plagiarized to my decision of not writing on this forum anymore...

 

As those events occurred, I realized how much this story is loved here on this forum, thanks to Anayah who made a appreciation thread for Fate-Mate itself. I don't think it has ever happened before on IF that someone has made a appreciation thread for a story itself. I never got to thank Anayah properly because I haven't updated since last year, so here I am taking the opportunity to thank Anayah for making that thread, and also, strawberry143 (Nisha) and Penny for being part of that wonderful idea.

 

And to all the readers who wrote all those wonderful words on Fate-Mate's appreciation thread. I was overwhelmed reading it (yet again). Thank you!!

 

 

 

Very important: Readers, please leave your email address on this thread for future update/blog information on this story. DO NOT PM ME - It's very time consuming to open each PM in order to add every single email.

 

Link for email addresses: http://www.india-forums.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=3619132

 

PLEASE leave your email only on this thread. I won't be checking any other threads for email addresses. Please DO NOT leave your email address on this thread. Thank you.

 

It All Started With 300 Rupees readers, please DO leave your email addresses there as well for future updates. If you have already posted your email address there, you don't have to do it again. Thank you!

 

 

P.S. Thank you again for all your wonderful wishes for my new baby :)

 

 

-KC

 

Now, last but not the least, The Update.

 

Enjoy!!


PMs Later!

Fate-Mate 37

A



 

She continued walking in the wilderness...

 

It was so dense.

So dark.

 

Why was she walking there? What made her come to this unknown place so late at night...?

What was she looking for?

Who was she looking for?

 

And why at this time?

It was so late. So black. So frightening.

 

She was alone in that rough path...

A trail between compact trees...

Dry leaves scrunching under her feet...

 

The rocky road...

Where was she going?

 

The gravels...

 

Even the moon wasn't helping tonight...

It was hiding somewhere behind the cloudy dark sky...

 

No light.

No clarity.

No destination...

 

What made her come here suddenly?

What was she thinking?

 

Maybe she wasn't thinking at all...

She was so upset about her day that she...

 

She what?

Walked in that dark unsafe forest?

She had never done that before.

 

Then why today?

Why tonight?

 

Her mind wandered just like her feet...

Lost in thoughts of his reality...

 

Why didn't he tell me? Why would he lie to me? Why would he hide something like that?

Why?

 

Why was he getting angry at me when I should be mad at him...?

What was that about?

If he was planning on telling me, then why wait for so long?

Why not tell me...

 

Her foot stumbled on muddy grits...

Making her wobble...

 

Coming out of her thoughts to look around again...

What was that sound?

Wild animals?

 

She shivered...

With sudden fear...

She looked around...

All around...

 

How was she going to get out of there?

How did she get there?

 

What brought her here?

And how?

 

She continued walking on that rugged path...

Blistering her heels...

Still trying to figure out why he lied to her...

 

Khushi...

 

She heard her name...

Her heart wrenched, yet again...

Remembering that...

 

Why did he address her Khushi?

Why did it sound so bad?

Why didn't she like that?

 

That was her name.

Then what bothered her so much...?

 

Since when Gloomy became more genuine than Khushi?

How did that happen?

 

The night was getting darker and darker...

The forest was getting denser...

The wild sounds got louder...

 

She needed to get out of there...

Right now!

 

No more lurking around in that unknown dark place...

But where was the way out...

 

 

Part B Continues...

Part B

 

She had walked so deep in that forest that she had lost her way...

 

Nervously, she looked around...

To find some help...

To find someone...

 

Her eyes found something flickering...

What was it?

 

It was sitting at a distance...

She started walking towards that flicker...

 

She walked on that rocky route...

Her feet lathered in dirt...

 

She got to that spark...

What was that?

 

A candle?

Who put a lit candle there?

In middle of that wilderness...?

 

How?

Why?

 

That was so strange...

 

She bent down and picked up the solitary candle flickering in that dense forest...

 

Who might have brought it here?

Was someone else there?

 

She looked around...

But didn't find anyone...

 

She held on to that candle and started walking...

Trying to find her way out...

With that one spark of light...

 

But she still couldn't see anything...

Everywhere she looked, all she could see was trees...

 

How was she going to find a way out of here?

She didn't even know if she was going further inside the wilderness or out...

 

The candle was burning her hand...

With the melting wax...

But she held onto it...

That was the only light she had...

 

To show her the way...

Way out...

Of that confusion...

 

Ouch!

She looked at her fingers burning under the wax...

 

She wiped off the wax from her fingers...

Carefully...

And continued walking...

 

Between the rocks...

The mud...

The dried leaves...

 

Still unaware of her exit...

 

The forest started fading a bit...

She could see the sky now...

Clearer...

 

It gave her some assurance...

Suddenly...

Her foot slipped...

Her sandals trapped between the muddy grits...

 

She lost her balance...

And she slipped...

 

Gravitating towards a deep cliff...

With no visible bottom...

So deep...

Endless...

 

Her body shuddered...

With fear...

 

She was going to slip...

And fall...

 

In that deep death valley...

With no way of saving herself...

 

Part C continues...

Part C

 

She tried to hold onto something...

But failed...

 

She screamed...

In panic...

For help...

 

But no one was there...

To help her...

 

From that almost mishap...

 

Her breathing increased...

 

Her body went numb...

Her mind stopped working...

 

She closed her eyes...

And all she could see was one face...

 

His face...

 

Strangely, she felt him...

On her hand...

 

Was she imagining him?

How could he be there?

 

She felt the pull...

He saved her...

From that...

 

Her eyes were still closed...

But she felt him...

He was there.

With her.

To save her.

 

She sighed in relief. And opened her eyes...

 

And she looked at him...

His face was slightly blurry...

 

She couldn't see his face properly...

The candle continued to burn her hand...

 

And she continued to stare at him in confusion...

 

He carefully took the candle from her...

Letting the wax leisurely sting his hand instead...

 

And he turned away...

Leaving her behind...

Alone...

 

Why didn't he take her along?

Why did he leave her there?

By herself?

 

Why?

 

She tried walking towards him...

Tried following him...

 

Trying to reach him...

The more she tried to get close, the farther he got...

 

Away from her.

Vanishing in that wilderness...

 

Quietly...

Leaving her.

Alone.

Scared.

Confused.

 

She screamed "Arnav..."

 

And her body shook...

Her eyes struggled to open...

Her body trembled...

 

And she looked around the darkness...

No trees.

 

No leaves.

No candle.

No rocky roads.

No him.

 

Part D Continues...

Part D

 

Where did he go? All she could see was the blinking light. Where was she?

She wasn't standing. Or walking. Or following anyone.

 

She was sitting.

But where?

 

It took her a whole minute to put it all together...

 

She was dreaming.

She wasn't lost in a forest...

She never had a candle...

 

She never almost fell from the cliff...

He was never there...

 

What was that? Why that dream? 

 

She looked at her hand. Checking it over and over again.

 

No wax.

No pain.

No physical pain.

 

No him.

Him?

Was it him?

Then why did she address him Arnav?

 

She looked at her trembling hand.

Felt her pounding heart.

 

And realized how he left her.

In that dream.

 

Why did he leave her?

 

She remembered "Khushi..."

 

Her eyes glazed with clear water...

Just remembering how he addressed her Khushi...

And not Gloomy...

 

And wet her face...

Why was she crying?

Why was she so upset?

Why did she feel so lonely?

 

There were too many questions...

But no answers.

None.

 

Why did she say Arnav?

Why did she have the candle?

Why did he take that candle from her?

 

She closed her eyes and remembered that afternoon with the fortune-teller...

And her burned hand...

And that name...

 

She couldn't sleep the rest of the night...

Between being angry at him for not telling her about her job...

And that dream...

 

His face.

That name.

 

The fortuneteller.

The strange feeling.

 

She ran quickly to her cupboard and started raking it...

Clothes after clothes...

Books after books...

 

Then she found it...

That diary...

She opened it...

And found that piece of paper...

 

And saw the faded ink...

With his name on it...

 

Only she knew how long she had kept that piece of paper for...

She closed her eyes...

 

And thought about her past...

All of it.

Their first meeting...

And their last meeting...

 

Before she knew it, her alarm informed her it was time for her to get ready for work.

Work?

 

Why would she go to work?

She didn't want to go to work...

Not after what she found out. How could she work there? He was her boss.

 

He was Mr. India?

He was the hot boss?

She brought his coffee every day?

 

She used to tell him about him all this time?

The more she thought, the angrier she got.

At him. At herself.

 

Part E Continues...

Part E

 

She put her diary away carefully and decided to get ready. This would be her last day. She wanted to go to work and give her resignation. She couldn't work there anymore. She didn't want to work there anymore. No.

 

She walked in at her work. Looking cautiously everywhere...

She wasn't sure if he was there or not.

She looked around. Everything seemed exactly the same, except her.

 

Her excitement to work there was gone.

The excitement for the upcoming fashion was not there anymore...

The excitement of meeting the boss was obviously replaced by anger...

 

Anger?

No.

Betrayal?

 

Lies?

Pain?

Hurt?

 

Her mind wandered back to that bizarre dream...

Why did she see his face with Arnav's name?

 

Was there any connection?

Why couldn't she stop thinking about that?

 

Before she could walk to her cabin, the receptionist stopped her and informed her "Manny is waiting for you in the conference room. Urgently."

 

She hesitated to go in there. Not knowing who else would be there. She quickly asked "who else is in the conference room?" "I don't know" was the reply she got.

 

Twisting the hem of her dupatta, calming her pounding heart, controlling her trembling legs, she walked towards the conference room...

 

The door was already open. She walked in and scanned the room quickly. It was just Manny in the room. No one else. Not even him.

 

She knocked on the door to get Manny's attention. Or his permission. "Sit down Ms. Khushi." She heard him address her like that for the first time. She nervously sat on one of the chairs across him. She sat there silently and waited to find out the reason for this meeting.

 

He left the sketches he was working on the table and came to sit right across her. She noticed him scan her carefully before he said "we don't have a whole lot of time to finish the designs, I need all your available time to finish this on time." He paused. "With your bizarre schedule...I don't even know when to expect you, why don't you fix a certain schedule?"

 

She was there to give her resignation. She didn't know how to answer to that. She was lost in her thoughts when she heard him again "I am talking to you Ms. Khushi."

 

"I..." That's all she could mutter...

 

Before he could say anything else, there was a knock on the door. "Come in", he said without looking at the door.

 

"Sir, I am sorry I couldn't get his signature...he wasn't available..." Reported the employee.

 

"What do you mean he wasn't available?" Now he looked at the door in frustration.

 

"No one answered the door. I don't know if he was even home or not. I waited there for a while but there was no answer." He handed the file back to Manny after completing his explanation.

 

Manny took the file back from him and asked him to leave. "I can't do this first thing in the morning, I can't waste all my morning trying to get in touch with our boss who could clearly care less about this project." He flipped the file while saying that.

 

"What do you mean?" She asked.

 

"What do I mean? What I mean is that I have called him, emailed him, sent someone to his home but he is somehow unreachable. I need his signatures on these papers but he is obviously not available. He hasn't done that before. Even if he doesn't come to the office, he gets the work done via email. But today, he has almost disappeared."

 

She was lost in her own thoughts...

 

Between the revelation...

The dream...

And now his disappearance...

 

"I might as well just quit and go to another fashion house. This is just beyond my patience. Damn that branch manager who had to be transferred to manage that nonsense publication branch during this crucial event. And damn that new manager who is still under training. It was so much easier when I just had to deal with the manager and not ASR." He closed that drawing pad in frustration and threw the pencil.

 

Now she heard him and replied without any hesitation...

 

"Quit? How can you quit Manny? You are the designer here?" She said that without thinking too much about it.

 

 "Oh, really? You do realize that? A designer who is dependent on you for that concept and an employee who can't reach the boss for something so urgent. It looks like I am the only one who gives a damn about this project. Not you, not him and obviously not the rest of the staff."

 

He stopped talking and paged his assistant on speaker "anything yet?" And they both heard the reply "no sir, he hasn't returned our calls or replied to our emails." He closed his eyes in irritation and spoke while rotating that odd silver skull ring on his thumb "keep trying, I need to get his signatures today." And he ended the call.

 

The phone paged again "Sir, your meeting will start in ten minutes for fabric sampling with the..." He interrupted the information "Heck! Fine, send them to the conference room when they get here..." And he pressed that rectangle button.

 

"Looks like I won't be able to do anything productive today...I will see you later Ms. Khushi...why don't you start working on jotting down ideas what exactly you have visualized it and then we can make the sketches later..."

 

She replied "Manny...I have to talk to you about something..."

"Not right now, neither I am in the mood, nor I have the time for any discussion...we will talk later..."

 

Part F continues...

Part F

 

He dialed his assistant to discuss something about sampling process before she closed the door and left.

 

She walked back to her cubicle and realized that she was yet to resign and now he is expecting to start working on the designs. She didn't know what to do.

 

Where was he?

 

Why couldn't the office locate him?

Where did he go?

Why was he doing that?

 

Nothing was making sense right now. Their conversation from last night.

 

His explanations.

Her anger.

His justifications.

 

Her random dream.

Her decision to resign.

 

And now this.

Him vanishing.

 

Her thoughts were interrupted by a loud noise coming from the conference room. She got up and walked towards the door, where there were already some by-standers trying to eavesdrop about the situation.

 

"I am done with this place. If it's going to continue like this, I may very well resign. I am sure this company can find another designer because clearly they have no interest in keeping me here long term."

 

And something broke.

A phone?

A glass?

 

She couldn't make out. All she could understand was Manny was furious in there for whatever reason and announcing her own resignation was not going to make things better.

 

She walked to the receptionist and asked "any news from the boss yet?" The receptionist replied "did you not hear Manny screaming in there. Everything is on hold due to some signature and I don't think this is going to get better until he gets those signatures..."

 

Once, she looked at her phone.

Contemplating between calling him or not.

 

NO.

She wasn't going to call. She decided.

She didn't want to talk to him.

 

After a strange night and even stranger morning, it was time for her to leave for college, and she did.

 

She remembered him saying yesterday he wouldn't be there. Then why some part of her wanted him to be there.

 

He really wasn't in college.

Just like he had said.

 

But she was hoping to see him there. Why?

Just because she could inform him that the office is a disaster right now? Yes. That must be it.

Then why wasn't she convinced that that was the only reason?

 

She was in college. And she looked around. Trying to find him.

Hoping to see him there.

Why?

She didn't know.

Was she planning on talking to him?

No. Of course not.

 

Then why was she waiting for him?

 

Her class started.

And then ended.

 

There was no sign of him.

It was already evening.

 

She went to the library. To study.

Or to distract herself.

 

It didn't work.

She couldn't stop thinking about him.

 

About his truth.

About the dream.

 

About his absence.

At work.

And in college.

 

She was staring at a hard cover book when she randomly thought about how he took her to the cruise. She had never imagined he would do something like that.

 

For her.

That was totally surprising.

And nice.

 

Nice? Yes, that's how he was with her.

Always nice.

 

Then why did he lie to her?

Just because he lied to me doesn't mean that he wasn't nice to me. She tried convincing herself.

 

Why was she taking his side?

Wasn't she supposed to be mad at him?

 

Part G continues...
