Just Another Love Story: Short Story Part 7

We reached Ananya’s residence the day after. As expected the house was adorned with lights. A tent was placed in front of the place. My heart began to race very fast as we walked inside through the open front gate. Thankfully there were not many guests around. As my eyes took a second to look for a familiar face, I had a weird feeling as if we were making the remake of DDLJ. Then I got sight of her! She was looking stunning in an orange saree. I will never forget that expression on her face for the rest of my life. It was like her heart had beaten after a very long time. As if she was also dead without me. At that moment I realized that she loved me as much as I loved her. I promised myself to leave no rock unturned but I will not let this marriage happen.

Just Another Love Story: Short Story Part 6

After she left, it was like she took my life source with her and I became a living dead. I forgot how to smile. I hardly talked to anyone. I used to frantically work in the office. All my dreams died and like a machine i lived only to fulfill my father’s dream. When Dad came back after a few weeks, he noticed the changes in me, how I would hardly eat or sleep. I used to avoid talking to him whenever possible especially when he would bring up questions about Ananya. For all he knew he was not getting any information out of me, so he contacted Raj.

Just Another Love Story: Short Story Part 5

I clearly remember that evening she came to my place. I just sent off my father to airport as he went to Canada that day for 3 weeks. I surprisingly went up to her and noticed that she was crying. Worriedly I touched her cheeks and asked “What happened?” I supportively placed both my hands on her shoulder and guided her to the sitting area.  I asked her again ‘why are you crying?”.

Next few days Raj did not come to college as he had gone to Pune for some family wedding. I knew those days would be hell of a torture and almost decided to ditch class myself but the thought of being able to see Ananya motivated me. I had an excuse of boredom with myself and Ananya was pleased to give me company. From then on our talks never ended. We ate lunch together and I dropped her to her PG and it almost became a routine.

She was sitting with her friends across a few tables from us. Hearing her giggle made me forgot why I was having a bad day.

The Phone Call After Ten Years - Short Story - The End

NOW…

All the emotions that i had buried underneath over the years. All the ashes of the memory and my heart revived again with the buzzing of my cell phone. I received a call this morning, from a lady who introduced herself as Anamika.  Anamika Rajat Sharma- my beloved Rajat’s wife. I should have been ecstatic to know about him but the news was grave. He was in the hospital taking his last breath. Rajat was dying of heart disease at just 40! The news was like a kick in the gut. I immediately booked three tickets for the next flight to Chennai and then rushed home. Right now I am in the middle of my journey surrounded by nostalgia. My melancholy is not helping to hide my restlessness. I am scared and worried for him, angry at him for not contacting me even once and frustrated because the journey is not coming to an end! “I am coming Rajat! Please hold on! I will be there soon. Then everything will be fine”. I touched my cheeks to remove the wetness from under my eyes; this is no time to cry! I have to be strong!!

All the preparations were going well, and then that day came; the day that changed my life forever, the day when I met Rajat for the last time. It was 12 pm; Aisha was out for shopping with her friends. I and dad took a week off from the office. We and mom were discussing about the wedding gifts that are to be given and unexpectedly Rajat entered the drawing room. For a second, I was thrilled to see him and then I saw those ferocious eyes. He was bustling with anger as he walked inside and halted in front of us.

The Phone Call After Ten Years - Short Story - Part 3

Rajat was tremendously rising at work but was slowly detaching himself from us. He would not show-up at family dinners, would usually skip breakfast and sometimes  would spend nights at the office. Amma had very little time left and all the efforts by doctors, family members failed to revive her. All she kept asking for was Rajat, that’s when my parents tried to talk to him about the severity of this situation and remind him of his duties to his mother. Rajat realized what he has been neglecting for such a long time. He took a week off from office, but it was too late by then. I could realize that he had come out of the mourning before I could. He came back to his routine within three days. Back in the office he was frantically working and moving on with his life. Within a month of Rajat’s arrival I had lost not just a mother, but my best friend and my faith in my sister.

Being displeased with this modified Rajat I went back to my car, unloaded his luggage and dumped it at his doorsteps. I could never forget the tears in amma's eyes since then. Hardly did I know that that was just the beginning. I took her inside and lied to her that he had heavy breakfast in flight and will join her soon after he discuss his future plans with dad; but she was heart-broken and went inside. Raged with fury, I bolted towards my own house, only to find that he had already left to take a look at his new office.
