Hi all .
Thanks for the likes and the comments.
Here is the 4th and the last part.
i hope you like it.
I stood there facing him with a wierd expression. As if he understood what was going on in my mind he spoke...
" i never loved her.She wasn't my type. You see it was all about money, power and fame. My father wanted me to get married to that spoilt girl so that our money and power could increase. Both our families are rich and famous so our marriage would double the fame and power for us . It was just pretense.Nor did she love me nor did i love her. "
I was shocked at this revelation . We saw all this just in films, the alliances and marriages for money and power but this was not a film we were in . It was true , freaking true. No words came out from my mouth. I was standing there like a statue with an open mouth.
"My mum was a cancer patient. It was her last wish , that i get the one i love . My ex had great reverence for my mother , though being a spoilt girl she respected my mum . And thus we parted ways from a hollow relationship. My world shattered when my mum died. It brought crashing down all my hopes and my dad's hopes too. I was then sent here to study literature, my favorite subject. "
Tears were rolling down my cheeks . I was shaken by the fact that his mother was no longer alive. I could never fathom his feelings as i had never lost my loved ones. At that time i prayed to god to forgive me if i had taken my loved ones for granted and to keep them safe , always.
I wondered why i never got to know this harrowing news. But then i realised that after my first year of college i was sent to another state for completing my 12th standard course after which i came here.
I could see his pained face. It was getting gloomy by every passing second. I empathised with him. The next moment he sat down on the ground with a thud . He broke down. He was crying uncontrolably. I hurriedly sat down next to him. I didnt know what to do , how to make him feel fine, how to make him stop crying... in an impulse i hugged him and slightly rubbed his back . I didnt care about wiping away my tears. I never expected this but he hugged me back tight. I trembled under his hold. I had never been so close to any guy before. I smacked myself in my mind. "why did i even had to hug him ? i could have just told him some consoling and calming words." i thought , but then put that matter to rest for the time being. But be it whatever i felt at peace in his arms. After sometime we parted.
We looked at opposite directions to avoid awkwardness , then looked at each other and burst out laughing. I was happy seeing him laugh. I felt happiness fill my heart and mind . The sadness and gloominess was now seeping away. I looked at him . In the moonlit night i could perfectly see his facial features. The word that came in my mind was 'flawless'.
"did you say something " he asked
"did i saw it aloud .?" i thought.
"umm no . nothing " i said.
He lay down on the ground seeing the stars. I sat where i was. I thought about the happenings of the past few minutes and that made me smile. I felt elated being with him. Even if it was for a short period of time as he had not told me if he loved me or not . But why would he love me ? i was just an average looking girl, with average money and average everything.
he was staring away into the night. i quietly got up and turned and was about to leave when he caught my hand and stopped me.
"where are you going?"
"i am feeling sleepy" i lied.
"oh yes i know that you are too sleepy but i need your help. "
"i need help to propose to the girl i love"
I felt a sinking feeling in my chest. a hollowness, a void. I felt my heart breaking into pieces once again but i did not want to go weak near him.
"ok , i'll help you " i said in a quivering voice. Although i was broken , i tried to be strong.
"there is a girl who loved me alot and perhaps loves me now too. i could not reciprocate the love as i was caught i the web of a fake relation. I loved her alot and still love her. "
I looked at him blankly. With no words to say to him or rather to my aching heart.
"She is the most beautiful girl i have ever seen , she has the most beautiful heart. She is the richest girl in the world i have ever known, she does the most richest deeds and has richest values and she is the most happiest girl because she remains happy in others happiness. I never told her but always loved her. I just hope she loves me too even now. "
"how should i help you in it ?:" i asked giving a confused look.
"i want you to help the girl know that she is the one.
"but who is the girl?" i asked in an irritated manner now.
"she is the one who never told me but always loved me and the one who tought me to love enough to let go. "
This was enough . I could not hear more praises about her . I walked away. I reached my room by making the least noise lest i woke someone up. I sat on my bed and recollected his words and praises that he showered for his love. I felt depressed. I took the water jar to fill water in my glass but both were empty. I took the jar to the hostel kitchen to fill it up. As i reached the water filter i saw something.
A Rose. i wondered why this rose was here but then noticed that there was a chit of paper underneath it . It read-
"i never told you but always loved you "
and below that was drawn a big heart shape and in it were written our names.
I felt as if i was flying in the sky. I felt happy , very happy . It felt as if the broken pieces of my heart were joining back on its own. My heart was filled with new hope. I rushed to the terrace and saw him down in the campus where he stood before. I rushed down and quietly came out of the hostel gate and ran towards him. I was panting when i reached there. I smiled shyly and he grinned seeing me blush and smile . He came near me and kissed me on my cheek . I turned red and looked down .He laughed and i felt so emmbarassed. I lightly punched him on his shoulder, closed my eyes and hugged him and he hugged me back protectively.
The witness of this love was the moon and the stars , the bird that chirped sweetly into the night and the squirrel which climbed up the tree to see this beautiful sight.
-THE END -
