Firstly, congratulations on the second thread! This journey with Soulmates has truly been nothing short of the magic that your writing spawns into words, and as this journey is now drawing into its last phase, it's something that makes me feel hollow already. The last time I felt this way was when I'd written the epilogue for NC, and whenever I think about the end of Soulmates, it gives me that same feels.
Sigh, I've become very touchy. Ignore me.
Moving over to this chapter. Seriously, there's something wrong with both of us because our ideas keep overlapping with each others. Ahem, never mind. Coming back to the point, the beginning of the chapter is as magical as you always pen them down to be. It's like a strange lullaby that soothes your heart and obliterates your mind of all thoughts as there's an instant connect with the description of nature that you write down.
Ishaani stares at Ranveer asleep and she knows now that she loves him. Oh, she's known all along. And she just caught his hand and sat beside him, taking in his sleeping features and taking a reassurance from his rising and falling chest about a security that she'd been missing for years. Oh, I could go on and on about this part (just like how we usually do when we're in our essay writing moods with each other), but I'm too mesmerized right now to frame my thoughts correctly.
Dawn follows the night and Ranveer wakes up, and Ishaani finds his abrupt departure weird... well, you can't blame him really now, can you? It's something he dreamt all his life until one life day it was snatched away from him with the note that this could never, ever happen. And now that it does, it's hard to accept and believe.
Then comes their breakfast and silent seating in the living room. Ranveer isn't going to the office today - Ishaani is surprised, but Ranveer doesn't want to elaborate on it further. And there comes another revelation - about Disha and Harshad. Wow... Ishaani really doesn't know how badly she was caught up in the spin of lies now, does she? And no that she realizes how much was kept away from her, it's bound to hurt her and lap her heart with wave after wave of guilt about how much pain and suffering she's caused him.
So Harshad did know about Disha, but on Ranveer's insistence, he never brought up the topic. Ranveer has got such a big heart to forgive everyone even though his heart is battered beyond repair. Ishaani cannot believe how selfless he is, but then again, since when was Ranveer's love ever selfish?
And then there's the realization of what's in between them. Ishaani takes her cue to leave, but she just couldn't leave like that now, could she? Not without letting him know how much he means to her, about how much she cherishes him never though too much has been damaged between them. He doesn't push her away but decides to walk away, but she doesn't let him. It's something he'd always hoped for... he had to know that it could happen for real (or not).
That kiss is something I can read over and over again, I'm that in love with the way you've written the stirring emotions behind them. Ishaani walks away from him and leaves, and that's it. Neither of them have the courage to face each other after something like that (well she more than he, him I have my theory about). So she hasn't even heard from her mother about this till now... interesting. And Chiru baby is silent - he's definitely cooking up something. The silence before the storm. Yeah, I can hear the faint thunders already.
And here again, you've opened up a new arena - his birthday! She wants to give him a birthday surprise and hope that it's one of the better birthdays that he's had in all these years. Why do I feel that you're dropping the said nuclear bomb on our head on his birthday?
Anyways, ignore my stupid pestering, you know I can be a pain at times. This is indeed a chapter worth the wait and something I'm going to go and re-read again! Stunning job on the chapter, darling, and do update the next one soon! I can't wait to see what's to happen next!
Loads of love,
Ps. You've got to stop with those one-line hints, they're driving me crazy! It's like I know I'm right, but I can't do anything about it. Argh! Now I understand why you remain so frustrated about the spoilers of US.
So, you'll be the first one to strangle me, is it?
Hah, thank you. And it all has been possible because of you guys. God, I had the same feels when reading the last chapters of the FF (I'd read all of them in one go due to my exams or something). Hollowness is what I feel but there is more... I don't know what, but it's just it. And I can't name it right now.
Ah, our ideas. Seriously! I know the shockers we give each other like that after nearly every chapter. xD Oh, my! Don't tell me you fall asleep after reading the first paragraph itself?
Just kidding... lullaby's always connected with sleeping, so...
Ishani's love for Ranveer is so droolworthy. She adores him and yet can't tell him (you can say she's kind of afraid of him) and yet longs to tell him. She must be so confused. Yeah, Ranveer wouldn't go the office 'cause he'd have liked to spend whatever time he had with her before she left but she leaves too early and he's well... he can't do anything about that.
Yeah, trusting Chiru Baba was one mistake that cost them both so much, and it goes bit similar to what we were talking about US' IshVeer 2 days back though here the difference is she didn't cross the line where things could go immensely ugly with them. That's definitely a comfort for them. And yet there were heartbreaks and sufferings that could have been avoided. But without them none of this could have happened.
And yes. She wanted him to know what he means to her as well as her vampire senses were working.
Jokes aside, Ishani herself wanted an assurance from him and nothing could be better than a hug... though she goes further ends up kissing him. Ranveer wouldn't have to worry about future.
What became of Chiru Baba will be known in the next chapter hopefully. There must be something he would be working on to take his supposed revenge.
Haha. About the nuclear bomb, I won't say anything. There's definitely something in the next chapter and very exciting to write too. I just hope it'll be alright.
Thank you again, and I will hopefully be updating the next one soon.
PS. It's alright. Everything will come out within few days. ;)
