Everything was going good! Aarav was behaving extremely sweeter than I thought. He would wake up early & without getting up from his bed, would call me to wake me up at the same time. Of course it irritated me at times but he always told me he needs to hear my voice early in the morning because I sounded way sweeter than chirping of birds. We would hv tea together & would wave each other good bye after that to catch-up our lectures. There wasn't even 1 day when I missed my lunch/dinner with him. We would go for a walk in evening & discuss about various topic. It was all going well. Sometimes we kissed, sometimes hugged & PDA was something we ignored but still people knew we were dating. I loved to spend time with him. He made me feel special. Though we fought several times on several topics, he would come, hold his ears & say sorry in the cutest way possible & I forgave him immediately! We planned for watching a movie on Saturday after my dance classes. He was coming to pick me up.
I purposely wore a blue sleeveless shirt & jeans as I knew he loved me in this outfit. He was crossing the road gawking at me & I blushed. I saw a car coming & crashing him in front of my eyes & it was as if someone has stabbed me. I ran over there & saw blood flowing out of his skull. I sat next to him & all he said was he loves me. I couldn't handle it & I fainted.
I found myself in hospital bed & the first thing that came into my head was-Aarav. I asked the nurse & headed towards his room.
I saw him on the hospital bed.
I held his hand.
"Aarav wake up I need u,I want u. I love you. Please don't leave me. Please."
I started crying heavily.
Doctor came & told me to relax as he was out of danger. He said he would like to see me in his cabin. I entered.
"Miss Shekhawat, your boyfriend has come across a memory loss. A kind of memory where some parts has been omitted out from his life. I don't even know if at all he remembers you. But to be honest don't stress too much to make him remember things. It would b quite stressful. I hope you can understand."
I understood very well. I knew this had to happen to me. When finally I found the one I wanted to be with, he also forgot me. This was life. And this time I had handle it carefully. I entered his room when he became conscious.
"Hello. I m Ananya."
"Oh hi. May I know who are you to me?" He asked confusingly.
I knew it's going to be hard. But I had to be strong.
"I m from ur college. U'll be discharged soon & I'll take u to ur hostel room."
"Oh that's fine. I'll ho myself. Anyway thanx for ur help."
"My pleasure." I tried to hide my tears & started leaving.
"What's your name btw?" He asked curiously.
"Ananya" I said & left.
I went straight to Sid. I knew he was busy with his gf but this was freaking important than a date. As soon as I called he left the place to meet me.
"What happened Anu?" He asked panicking.
Sid had become a close friend of mine. Things I would not like to tell to Aarav or if I had a fight with Aarav, Sid was one friend I would like to speak to.
"He lost his memory."
"Oh c'mon Anu don't tell me you are those kind of girls who expects their bfs to remember stupid dates." He said making a face.
I grabbed his collar, looked into his eyes intensely & in a deep tone said- "I m damn serious. He has actually lost his memory. He doesn't know who the hell I m."
"What? How did it all happened?" He asked shocked.
I had left his collar by now & explained him everything. He felt pity for me & gave me a friendly hug. He tried to encourage me but all in vain. I returned back to my old scheduled life. Even Sid tried to make me busy. I knew he was just doing his duty of being a true friend. I would cry everyday thinking why it had to happen to me.
I remained quite & people noticed it. They thought Aarav had ditched me & as everyone was scared of him, no one dared to ask him what happened.
Cultural fest was coming up & Principal Gupta called me in his cabin. I saw Aarav too in his cabin.
"So Ananya & Aarav, I know that u both are trained and professional dancers. I wanted u both to give a duet performance in our cultural fest. Some sponsors are arriving."
He made it direct. I wanted to say no but somewhere I had a hope that may b by staying close to him for at least a few days would give me some relief.
We came out. I couldn't stop staring at him. I wanted to hug him, kiss him, tell him how much I love him & miss him but I knew I couldn't.
"Hey, I know you." He said with a friendly smile.
After a pause he said- "oh aren't you the same girl who saved my life?" He said excitedly.
"Ya." I sounded low.
"So Ananya 2 hours in the evening after classes."
"Ok. But skipping Saturday & Sunday." I whispered.
"Oh that's perfectly fine." He gave a smile and went.
I wanted to hold him & tell him how much I loved that smile of his.
I finished classes & went to the rehearsal hall. I was in my tank top & tight shorts. I did a bun & wore lenses.
"Hey." He came in.
"Which style are we doing?" I asked.
"Salsa!?" We both said together! He gave me a hi-five & I felt awkward.
"Woah that's great. Let's start then."
"I was wandering if e could add a pinch of contemporary to it." I said.
"Oh sure why not? But which song?"
"We'll mix two songs." I said, trying to avoid an eye contact.
"Suno na sang-e-mar-mar and subhanallah?" He asked. I wanted to tell him that we had already danced on one of this songs. But remained quite & nodded.
Every time we would dance, I would try to avoid eye-contact which made him angry. He finally warned me to look into his eyes & dance or else he would leave right then. This time I did.
The magic was recreated. I hugged him tightly & he removed my hair-strands backwards & gave me a neck bite. For a moment I thought Aarav was back. We were going to get more physical when his phone ringed & we experienced another awkward moment.
I started leaving, feeling ashamed. He held my hand & twisted it around to make me face him.
"It's hurting me." I said sighing.
"I think I know u. I mean from ages. Tell me who are you to me?" He said sternly.
"I don't know what are u taking about." I said remembering doc. Words.
"Don't lie. I feel some connection." His grip loosened & soon he fainted. I knew I couldn't handle his heavy body so I called a student passing by the corridor to help me. We took him to the nurse room. I explained the nurse everything & warned her to not tell it to anyone. She gave him an injection & told me he would be fine once he gets conscious.
I waited there for an hour & found him conscious.
"U r fine right?" I asked quickly.
"Ya" he said dizzily.
"Wait you didn't answer me." He said.
"Because there's no answer." I said & left.
I knew he wasn't in a state to stop me. Even though this whole concept gave me stress, the best part was even after all this- he had feelings for me & a strong one.
There was only one change I noticed in him. He remained more happier & not even a trait of that angry young Aaarav. Maybe something that had made him that way also disappeared from his memory. Anyway as far as he remained happy, I had no problem. I felt good meeting him everyday, spending time with him & a new face of Aarav appeared to me. He seemed more happy, and cracked good jokes. He tried to make everyone happy around him & talked to everyone politely unlike the Aarav I had known. We became good friends & we had those moments where we used to have passionate hugs & passionate moments which could sometimes turn physical but we tried to ignore it to a certain level. He wasn't the Aarav who never used to share stuff with me. He had become a person who shares everything with me. The same way I do with Sid. He found a best friend in me & for the time being this was more than enough for me.
Precap: Aliza back in Aarav's life... '"
