I snuggled closer towards a warm body beside me trying to block the sun rays directly falling on me. Feeling satisfied by blocking them I tried falling back to sleep until a warm hand pulled me closer. Goosebumps appeared all over my body by its own making my sleep fly somewhere else.
I tried freeing myself from his hold but failed miserably as the hold was too strong. Its not that I can’t remove his hand but its just that I dont feel like freeing myself. It felt really great to be in his strong protective arms.
We sleep everyday watching the stars on the bedroom ceiling which was a gift to me by my Husband and wake up everyday snuggled to each other.
Wait! Did I really address him as my husband? Well yes, and I dont really mind it.
I looked at his sleeping form beside me lifting my lashes. My mouth got dried looking at the Greek god in the form of my husband.
I must agree, he is handsome.
Okay he is damn hot! My mind screamed.
Sushing my mind I raised my finger to touch his thick soft hair which was distracting my mind. As soon as I touched it I felt an sudden urge to run my fingers into them. And I obeyed.
My urge to touch him became more as I found myself tracing his broad forehead and next his nose while passing his expressive eyes which were now closed.
A sudden bell rang in my heart when my finger touched his lips. They were rough yet soft and were so juicy that I loved to taste it.
I blushed thinking what it feels to be kissed by him.
Damn! Did I just think of kissing him,huh? My goosebumps got increased by every passing second.
“Its very bad to stare when people sleep, life.…” He said.
Well he calls me Life and I like this name. But wait is he awake while I am drooling over him? Shit! I am embarrassed.
Within a blink of an eye he flipped our position and I am lying under him and he on top of me.
“Am I that handsome that you are not ready to leave my face for a second?” He asked in a teasing tone.
I cared less about what he said as all I care now is our close proximity. His arms wounded around me, his breath fanning over me and his lips were so close to me that I doubt if any of us make a move it touches.
With all this thoughts running in my mind my cheeks heated up which I am sure must be turned into red by now and down casted my eyelashes.
He bent closing the remaining gap between us and Finally his lips met mine.
Yes, it happened finally. We kissed.
I immediately pulled him closer to feel more of him but it DIDNT last for long he just pulled away.
Seriously, it was just a peck not a kiss. I pouted with disappointment. I expected something more.
“Remember my promise to give you space, so I will not be touching you until you get comfortable. Okay.” He said and moved to the washroom.
He loves me a lot and I still remember that day when I accused him to be insane. He even got ready to take treatment next day but I stopped saying its not needed.
Remembering those days it struck me that I need to meet Dev today as he came back to delhi from chennai yesterday. I need to speak with him.
“Are you going somewhere?” Maan asked standing in front of me as I stood staring at the floor.
“Ummm…. Ya I forget to say you. I am going to meet doctor. Actually I have got appointment today!” I lied.
I really didn’t want to lie but….. It happened. I thought not be at home this time and I will be back when he returns. But his meeting got postponed.
“What? Are you okay,life?” He asked with a scared tone.
“Ofcourse I am fine. Its just a routine checkup.” I said trying to calm him.
“Okay,let me come with you.”
“What? No need Maan. I will go by myself, anyways i am going to Dr Anjelina.” I said his family doctor name to make him agree.
“Okay then let me drop you. No arguments.” He said and marched out taking his keys and I followed him with no choice.
“Okay Maan, bye.” I said standing in front of the gates and left to his office.
As soon as he left the place I took a cab and went to Dev’s house which was a twenty minutes away.
I knocked his door reaching his house and he opened it with a smile.
“What happened that you want to meet me? Did you prove him insane? Well here are the divorce papers and transfer of property papers. Just make him sign on the property papers and we will apply for divorce in court. After divorce we can ask huge ammount as maintainance from him. Finally he will be proved as insane, impotent, with no money and power….! Hahahahaha” Dev laughed out loud making my heart to wince in pain.
” We are not doing anything of that sort, Dev.” I said.
I doubt if he heard or not as he didnt respond for few seconds.
“What did you say?” He asked with wide eyes.
“I dont want any revenge” I said in a no fuss tone.
” But why? Are you scared? Look we are in our final stage in our plan. You can not back off at this moment. And how can you forget that he killed your parents and friends?” He asked me while pulling his hairs.
” I didn’t forget Dev. I still remember that day how my world was brutally shaken. I forgive him for all this.” I said with strong voice.
“What’s the difference?” He asked.
“I forgive his deeds but can never forget them. I agree he is a criminal who needs punishment. But he has totally changed. He loves me now and I can’t hurt him in the name of revenge.” I said remembering all the times i have hurt him.
“But you said…” He started but i cut him off.
“Yes, I said I hate him and I dont love Maan. I said that I want to see him get destroyed. I said that I will make him fall on his knees and beg on my feet. I said I married him to kill him. I said all that shit.” I fell on my knees feeling week.
“I said all those that time. But everything has changed now. He changed. I changed. The situations changed. And I feel suffocation EVERYTIME I hurt him.” I cried out loud and Dev helped me to stand up.
“Okay Geet as you wish. But do you think Maan has changed? Dont you know he is a womanizer? Maybe he stopped flying with dowry as he successfully earned a lot of amount but what about his physical needs? As far as I know him he will never change. You are risking yourself and all your friends life by trusting him Geet.” He said on a warning tone.
“I can feel his behaviour changed. I can see it in his eyes. And Dev you also forget about all this revenge. You are a good friend so dont spoil your life by revenge games.” I suggested him as he is a really good person.
“Just leave now. I need time to think.” He said holding his face in his palms while sitting.
“Okay.” I said giving him as much time he wants and left his house.
As soon as I came out from his house I felt a huge weight removed from my shoulder. Finally I can stay peacefully with no heart and mind battles. I can again live the way I live. Even if my parents were alive they would never be happy seeing me trying to hurt someone in the name of revenge.
Maan didnt have a peaceful childhood so this might be the reason he became today. Whatever maybe his past he has changed now and that’s enough for me to forgive him.
I came out of my thoughts when my phone rang. Shuffling through my bag I found it and saw Maan calling.
“Life,what did the doctor say? Maa said you were not home so are you okay?”
“Uhhh….yes I am great. Nothing to worry. I am already in the cab and I will be reaching in five minutes.”
“Okay. Let’s go to a dinner date! What say?”
“Dinner date? But why so sudden?”
“Just like that. Its okay if you dont want.”
“No. Its not like that. I mean I will come.”
“Great! Come home soon we can get refreshed and go.”
Wow! Dinner date! I clapped my hands in excitement.
“You are looking so beautiful!” He said looking intently at me.
“Uffff… This the hundrenth time you spoke this line. Now stop.” I said feeling butterflies in my stomach.
“So what its the truth right? I can repeat this in my entire life.” He said sincerely.
I felt so overwhelmed. So I excused myself and went to the restroom to calm my nerves.
After splashing a number of times on my face I came out and saw a most heart breaking scene.
He was hugging a woman who is about to touch his feet along with a kid who is around two to three years. Now the kids age isn’t important. It is the man who is hugging and it is my HUSBAND.
He looked at me and widened his eyes looking at my teary face. I couldn’t hold this anymore and burst out into tears and ran away from that place as far as my legs can run.
“Life……wait…. Life..!” I heard him scream my name but I DIDNT stop and ran.
But it was for short time as he is faster than me and caught me before I make any moves.
“What happened life? Why are you running? And what are these tears for,huh.” He asked wiping my tears.
“Are you asking me Mr innocent? You can go have your entertainment with your lover or whatever! Who am I even to disturb you?” I said trying to sound calm but failed miserably.
“So…. Jealous?” He asked with a smirk and my anger rose to no bounds.
“Stop smirking at me got it. And yes I am jealous because you are mine and only I have rights on you. Remember one thing I love you.” I screamed at him all the while pushing him and hitting on his chest.
“What did you say? Repeat again?” He asked in disbelief and I cupped his cheeks.
“I dont know when and how I fell for you but I LOVE YOU and I CAN’T IMAGINE A SECOND WITHOUT YOU. It hurts to see you with someone else. I feel like I am dyiiiiii……” My words were interrupted as his lips came over mine.
I equally participated in this kiss as if I am speaking my unsaid words in this kiss. Time started passing and it started raining but we didn’t stop. Because our force is stronger than anything else.
Two souls becoming one. 😀
