Love is an Adventure – Part – 11

Love is an Adventure – Part – 11

The story has put behind 10 parts and you can read all of them here –  Part-1, part-2, Part-3, Part-4, Part-5, Part-6, Part-7, Part-8, Part-9 and part-10.

Despite anticipated lazy Sunday morning, Keya walked out of bed early and made herself coffee. Of course, her mind and heart were in sync rightnow to daydream the meeting with Ankur in few hours. She kept thinking about what to wear, what to talk, how to react and so on. She re-read the chat with Ankur since past 24 hours and smiled silently.  At heart, just like any other female, she liked Ankur being jealous and his reactions. But at the same time, she wished to not pass through the situation again where she had to justify her intentions.

After coffee round and reading Sunday Times, when she slipped in bed with Vihan, he was awake and innocently smiled at her. Keya kissed his cheeks. This little guy had become a hope and purpose of her life since last few years, when she lost her own identity. She loved being with or around Vihan. Being kid with this kiddo was used to be the best time for Keya. They both started singing a poem and danced. Vihan was visibly happy, seeing his source of energy happy.


Nimit woke up and the three headed out for breakfast. This custom was followed since long. Nimit, being a perfect husband, had asked Keya to be out of kitchen on Sunday and Keya loved that free time once in a week.

Even while eating breakfast, Keya talked non-stop while stopping in between randomly to daydream about the meeting with Ankur, in few minutes. Nimit could sense that indefinable happiness of Keya but as usual, he controlled himself by not asking question. On the way back, Keya suggested both of them to visit the new sports center while she is away for couple of hours. Nimit and Vihan, both loved the idea. They dropped Keya at home and started for Sports center.

At home, Keya took quick shower as clock was already showing 11:45 am. Hotel  Platinum was about 20 minutes commute time from home and she did not wanted to be late. But again, female factor worked. One after other, she tried almost five different dresses but was not happy with any of it. Brown one was too revealing and purple had a big flowery design. Pink had cold shoulder and blue looked too short. She was in no mood to compromise but a special notification drew her to the real situation. It was almost 12:05 pm and Ankur had sent her reminder.

Ankur : Of course, you are not like other women, who forget about the special time. But just to remind you, someone is waiting for you eagerly. Come soon.

Keya was stressed now. She had just 5 minutes, if she wanted to reach on time. But she had not decided on dress yet. Finally, she convinced herself with that most promising, always worked trick of her own. She closed her eyes and took out a random dress. It was geometric patterned blue and white colored knee length dress. With a doubt, she put it on but when she looked at herself in that full size mirror, she was amazed. The dress brought out her perfect body structure while not exposing anything. Keya hurriedly matched the dress with diamond earrings and brushed long hair to leave them open.


It was already 12:17 pm, when she started from home.

After facing typical Sunday traffic, when she reached hotel Platinum, it was almost 12:42. While driving, she heard couple of those special notifications but was too late to look at them. She just rushed into Beans café but she saw a crowd of black tied people there. With a confusion of what’s going on and a guilty of being late, finally she took out her phone to call Ankur but decided to have a look at his messages.

Ankur :  Keya, Beans Café has been occupied today by one of the small business as they have their meet and greet talk today. I was not aware about it. Came to know only after I was here….

That message was around 12:10 pm. That means, Ankur was here earlier than the scheduled time, Keya thought to herself and smiled. Crazy man, she said silently and read another message which was delivered to her around 12:30 pm.

Ankur : Keya, I believe you are on the way and therefore not checking your messages. I was looking for option here but restaurant is also full due to brunch time and therefore I have booked a room in hotel Platinum so that we can talk freel. I hope, you will not mind about it. I will wait for you in hotel lobby.

For a minute, Keya was frozen. She did not imagined to be in hotel room with Ankur and her so called orthodox mind denied being there. But that heart in love had already overtaken and was directing her body to move towards hotel lobby.

She saw Ankur waiting. In blue jeans and white sleeve folded shirt, he looked handsome. She smiled when both of their eyes met. Ankur too had a wide smile on his face. The moment Keya reached nearer, he started walking towards elevator, signing her to follow. That was an awkward moment for Keya as it made her felt like she was doing something wrong. She did not like the way Ankur asked her to follow, without making her comfortable. Her mood changed in a fraction of second and she wanted to run away but she was already in elevator with him.

In elevator, when Ankur wrapped her with his right hand, she felt better and secure. Why females need that kind of emotional assurance while doing something wrong? And actually, was she doing anything wrong? Well, being at any place, with anyone is a personal freedom as far as you are following rules of society J…..That’s what society has taught us.

The right thing to learn about personal freedom is – to live the only opportunity, called life, on your own terms and do not allow anyone to control you. Also…..fuck off those, who judge you. They do so because they do not have courage to live the life, you are living or they do not have anything to do in life other than formatting and following rules 🙂.


BTW, while I was writing all those facts about personal freedom, Keya and Ankur were in hotel room – the most uneasy situation they would have imagined. But what followed is really an amazing story, exhibiting love and everything around it. Stay tuned 🙂

Love is an Adventure : Part – 10

Love is an Adventure : Part – 10

Past episodes of this story are –  Part-1, part-2, Part-3, Part-4, Part-5, Part-6, Part-7, Part-8 and Part-9

The tight sleeper Keya, woke up for couple of times after mid-night to check phone, to look for Ankur’s message but there was none.  Finally, at the dawn, she could not control.

Keya : Good morning 🙂. Had been waiting for your message since last night but you must be busy. Hope you are sleeping well now.

Although at heart, she so wanted Ankur to not be sleeping and instead responds to her message immediately. But it did not happen.

She tried to sleep but could not. It was only 5 am and due to weekend, there was no urgency for anything. Suddenly she felt a hand on her waist. Before she could react or try to react, Nimit was kissing her all over. Keya felt strange but that’s how it had been since years. There was no foreplay or verbal communication, which could help her in getting mentally ready. Nimit started kissing her earlobes without caring for her response and she stayed static. Nimit’s hands were on her body and her heart was somewhere else. She was eager to listen to that special notification but today, someone had decided to make her wait, a long wait. By the time Nimit was into her, keya was completely irritated. She so wanted to run away but kept mum and silently participated with a hope to finish it as soon as possible. Finally, Nimit was done. He kissed her lips and whispered “I Love You” in her ear before falling asleep again and without caring for Keya’s status. Yes, most of the time, most of the males do not understand it but the most important part of any intercourse is to make sure that both participants feel the intimacy because its not a single player game.


Keya, as usual, was used to with this “weekend” routine. She walked out of bed and cleaned herself.

A hot cup of coffee and a cold breeze in fresh morning helped her in being at peace. But as they say, when you think you are settled, life throws surprises and a surprise was on the way for Keya.

She heard that special notification and immediately opened the chat log…

Ankur : Good morning.

There was no smile and Keya could sense an odd feeling.

Keya : Hey, slept well?? 🙂

Keya intentionally appended smile.

Ankur: Yes and No.

Keya started getting impatient. She was still coming out from “weekend” routine and Ankur was not ready to talk clearly.

Keya : Ankur, everything OK?

Ankur : Does it matter to you?

Keya : How do you mean? If it would not have mattered, why I would have asked?

Ankur : I don’t think you have even time to think about us.

Now Keya was irritated with confusion.

Keya : Why are you saying so? I have been waiting for your response since last night. I thought, it was you, who was busy.

Ankur : And therefore you too got busy?

Keya : How do you mean? Where did I get busy?

Ankur : Keya, I do not want to stretch this.

This sentence, whenever used, proved to be effective. Keya was curious, confused and annoyed now.

What he does not want to stretch? She spoke silently.

Keya : Please tell me, whats bothering you?

Ankur : Nothing keya. I thought you will be available to meet over weekend and we will have good time chatting.

So he wants to meet again only within 12 hours of first meeting. Keya thought to herself. She thought about her weekend schedule and she could not see any chance for her to sneak out for an hour even.

Keya : Sorry Ankur. As Nimit will be home for whole weekend, it would be difficult for me to sneak out.

Ankur : See, I told you….

Keya : But I am available for chatting on phone.

Ankur : Keya, I don’t want options.

Keya was taken aback with that response. What he was upto?

Keya : What are you talking?

Ankur : Nothing. You just enjoy new movie and family function with your family.

Keya could not trust her eyes. Ankur had sent that response.

Keya : Ankur, I would have loved to meet you over weekend but not sure how to sneak out.

Ankur : keya, those who want to do something, will find a way out but I know, you love your family and time with family.

Now, keya’s head was spinning. What he was upto? Why he was talking all this?

Keya : It has nothing to do with my love for family. I don’t think even you would prefer to go out alone while family is available over weekend.

Ankur : Keya, I can do it and that’s why I proposed and was looking forward to spend my time with you.

Already guilty, Keya was more confused to handle this.

Keya : Sorry Ankur but I really do not see any opportunity for me to sneak out.

Ankur : Sure Keya. I can understand it. I am secondary.

Keya read it for multiple times. Just 48 hours of love acclamation and Ankur was blaming her to be not available. But you know what? In this kind of situation, when you are successful in making someone feel guilty, you have achieved your goal and Ankur did same thing.

Keya : Ankur, please give me sometime and let me see, if I can do something.

Ankur : Keya, I am not looking forward to meeting anymore. Please continue with your weekend routine.

That “weekend routine” word bunch refreshed the morning experience for Keya. She deep breathed.

Keya : Please don’t say that. I promise, I will try my best.

Ankur read the message but did not respond and of course, that was enough to push Keya to make meeting happen.

She thought of couple of strong excuses, which she can use to sneak out. But she did not want to confirm with Ankur before she could get permission from Nimit. She waited for Nimit to wake up.

On breakfast table, she asked Nimit if she can go and meet her old school friend, who has came back from Australia for few days. Nimit was ok with it. There was no long discussion on it and Nimit did not care even to ask her friend’s name. Although Keya was prepared with details like name and so called friend’s whereabouts.

She immediately sent a message to Ankur.

Keya : Ankur, can we meet today?

Ankur : I can see that. You movie plan must have been canceled and that is why you are filling up the space.

That response irritated Keya. Here, she was trying her best to sneak out and Ankur thought she was using him as an option.

Keya : Well, I tried my best to sneak out. Worked on an excuse, made it happen but I think you are taking all my efforts in wrong manner. Let’s cancel it. We will meet someday when you are in your right mind.

That made Ankur furious.

Ankur : Keya, I am in my right mind. When you said no and suddenly within couple of hours, your are coming up with a proposal to meet, who will believe you?

Keya : OK Ankur, don’t believe me. Thanks!!

She had tears.


Yes, females are just like that and why not? When someone unknown about your situation doubts your intentions, you cannot hold it back.

She kept thinking about first meeting with Ankur and how he had encouraged her for pursuing her hobbies. Day passed by in thoughts and long wait for messages but it did not happen. One more sleepless night was there for Keya but it was painful. No communication. That silence was killer but both of them had their ego. The day, expected to be fun day, turned into unfortunate day.

Next morning, when Keya woke up and checked her phone as first thing, she saw the message.

Ankur : Sorry Keya. Let’s meet. @12:30 pm? Beans café, at the ground floor of Hotel Platinum?

Keya : Will see. Will try.

Of course, she was going because that fire was equally stinging at both ends. But Keya was hurt and sad the way Ankur commented on her intentions. Before Nimit could attack her for another “weekend routine”, Keya walked out of bed and with hot coffee in hand she started daydreaming about the meeting with her love.

And phone beeped.

Ankur : I love you Keya.

She smiled and responded…

Keya : Love you too.

One more sunny day after cloudy weather for almost 36 hours.



But what do you think? That weekend meeting after a clash would have been limited till meeting only?

What these experienced lovers, who are so used to with “weekend routine” in their respective real life do when they meet?

Stay tuned 🙂





To be continued…

To be continued…


After breaking me, you asked…

Why are you disappointed?

I just smiled….with tears in eyes

And touched that half heart tattoo on my finger


I talked with myself silently

This too shall pass…”, I told to myself


Every day, every moment I repeated it

More disclosures, more facts, more realization

Unwanted and untimely….of course

I just wanted to survive


But pain never went off

In one or the other way, it kept coming

And emotions started drifting


Today, while sitting alone at other ends of world,

We both are thinking same thoughts

Where all that beautiful time flew away?

Why we, who promised to be brave, weakened?

What made us great partners, split us

What encouraged us to be together, parted us

What prompted us for everything, changed us


And we…

We just stood there and allowed time to take action

We punished out souls but not self-importance

We tolerated silence but not an error of other one


And while the clock still says “to be continued….”

We know, for how long 🙂

Love is an Adventure : Part – 8

Love is an Adventure : Part – 8

This story is 7 parts old. Read them as Part-1, part-2, Part-3, Part-4, Part-5, Part-6 and Part-7.

For the whole way back from school, the phone kept buzzing. Keya got irritated but melted at same time. One more loop of thoughts processed while driving back…

He might not be like that…

I was too harsh…

I would have at least talked with him

But as he wanted to kiss me at first glance, his intention seems clear

Why would someone not love a beautiful wife like Revati?

Ankur is just another male….no difference.

Keya took deep breath before entering into home and decided to not look at messages. She served lunch to Vihan and sat with him. Vihan started playing with spoon rather than eating and Keya got very upset with him. She was about to hit him but controlled herself. Tears rolled out of her eyes. She never hit Vihan and her philosophy to treat the only kid with love was violated just because of one statement from someone, whom she met just few days back.


But love is the strongest influence. To the outsider, it looks like another stupidity, another presentation of weak control over heart, another story….but those two, who are involved, know what it is. None other than who lives it, realizes that its most beautiful and scary feeling at same time. Being in love makes you think the negative thoughts, you would have never thought as a normal person. And at the same time, that same love will make you stronger enough to face any challenge in the world.

Keya was already affected, just within 24 hours of “being in Love”. She asked Vihan to go for nap and after struggling with herself for barely 5 minutes, she opened the chat log….

Ankur : Hi Keya, what happened?

Ankur: Why did you leave like that? Did I do anything wrong?

Ankur : Keya, I am already missing you. Why don’t you respond the messages?

Ankur : Keya, please tell me, if I did anything wrong. I am really sorry. Please respond.

Ankur : I never knew the best feeling of life will be affected in just 13 hours….Please let me know what happened.

Ankur : Keya, I am getting impatient. Please respond. I hope you are OK.

Keya read those messages for 5 times….The decision to not respond him ever, washed off immediately. She started typing but was not sure, what.

Keya : Yes, I am OK

And on another second, before she could close the chat log, Ankur responded…

Ankur : Haah, I was worried.

Keya : No need to worry for me, Ankur. I have enough people in my life to worry for me.

Ankur was taken aback. The lady love, who sent her smiling face just before couple of hours was not ready to respond.

Ankur : I am glad you have many people in your life to worry for you. But can you please consider me too as your well wisher?

That statement worked like an explosion. Keya was trying to control but seeing Ankur layering his physical desires, she could not.

Keya : Oh really? Just FYI, those who worry about me, does not observe my lips…

Ankur : I did not get it Keya. What are you trying to convey?

Keya : I knew it.

Keya : Let’s get it straight.

Keya : What are you expecting from me by being in love?

Second shock for Ankur and Keya was shivering with anger at other end.

Ankur : Nothing…..I absolutely do not expect anything in return other than love.

Keya : Oh really? In that case, your love must be seeing physical intimacy as part of it, right?

Ankur was messed up but kept patience.

Ankur : Well, yes. I do not see physical intimacy as wrong thing and any pure love sees/meets/experiences physical intimacy. Don’t you give a tight hug to your son when you are too happy?

In fraction of second, Keya lost all the arguments. She felt guilty the way she thought about Ankur.

Ankur continued….

Ankur : I do not see you as a physical desire…..I have felt something new, strange, exciting, similar while talking with you, which I never felt with anyone.

Keya : Not with Revati even?

Ankur : Never….

Keya : But then why did you said that you wanted to kiss me? Does anyone express love like that? That too when you are too young being in love?

Ankur : I am sorry if my statement conveyed wrong message. But let me tell you this. You are really beautiful and I know, you must have been receiving compliments every day.

That old trick to melt any female worked with Keya too.  Her discomfort, anger, doubts everything disappeared with that one statement and a little smile made her face glowing.

Ankur : Keya, I love you…..and that’s not about loving the physical beauty. You are much more than beautiful body.

Again, pampering statement and again it worked….Keya suddenly felt light and out of stress. It felt like a huge burden was taken off in minutes.

Keya : I love you Ankur but remember, I do not love you for your look, status or money. I love you because that’s what I have felt with you and not with anyone else in my life…

Ankur : My love, I know. As I wrote, nothing else matters when frequency of thoughts matches and I respect and love you in same breath.

Finally, the dark tunnel was over and day light was shining. Keya went to Vihan and kissed his forehead. Vihan woke up and smiled to her.  Keya hugged him tight. And one more notification….special one…

Ankur : I love you Keya (love)

She smiled ear to ear…Love is just like that. Any age, it makes you behave like a teenager. All of a sudden, you don’t care for the world and at the same time, you do not want to share your precious feeling with anyone. You want to jump high in air and at the same time, you want to hide in bunker. And that’s how both the love birds felt after first so called virtual arguments session.

But is Ankur really in love with Keya?

Does Keya get peace of mind after Ankur’s explanation?

And most importantly, love between two so called “experienced” people can be limited to “pure love”?


Stay tuned  🙂

Love is an Adventure : Part 7

Love is an Adventure : Part 7

Previous episodes of this story are available as Part-1 and grew to  part-2, Part-3, Part-4, Part-5 and Part-6.

After being awake for the whole night and being in virtual company of each other, when both the love birds went back to real life, both had new rhythm in their moves. Ankur’s last message was still replaying in Keya’s mind…

Can’t wait to see you at school in the afternoon.

Keya kept thinking, what she will talk with Ankur when they both will meet at school pick-up gate. She kept smiling at herself for the silly love thoughts. When Nimit came on breakfast table, she happily joined him and that surprised Nimit. He tried to understand the unexpected return of charming smile on Keya’s face, he had seen before years. It made him happy and concerned at the same time but he decided to wait.

Once Nimit left, Keya wrapped up kitchen fast and took shower to get ready. After years, she used hair straightner and changed hair partition. She stared herself in mirror and smiled. That baby pink waist length, cold shoulder shirt paired with black jeans made her look beautiful with perfectly set hair. Not a big fan of accessories, she never tried anything from her best collection of earrings and watches. Today, she tried that long hanging diamond earrings and it made her round face look long and attractive. After spending almost 20 minutes in front of mirror, it was time to take selfie. For the first time in her life, she took almost 50 selfies, in different poses and while going through all of them, she was still not happy. And while the process of taking more selfies continued, phone buzzed with specific notification after almost 3 hours. She hurriedly opened the chat log to read message.  Ankur had sent his fresh smiling picture along with caption – for the new life (love)…


Not sure what to do, Keya kept looking at that smiling face. Ankur was not extraordinarily handsome but he had an appealing smile. But more than that killer smile of Ankur, she loved the caption. Being married to Nimit for more than 10 years now, she never heard that kind of romantic statement from him. Keya quickly took one more selfie and clicked on send without thinking much. And before she could put back the phone, that special sound was there again.  She quickly reached out.

Ankur : Beaaaaautiful……So want to kiss those rose petal lips (kiss) (kiss)

Keya was taken a back with the pace of things were moving on. Ankur’s message made her uncomfortable.

How is he looking at me? Did I send any wrong signal by accepting the love proposal? Is he physically attracted to me? Keya’s mind started working on a totally different track than she was onto just 10 minutes before. The more she thought, more uncomfortable she felt. Suddenly cloud of negative thoughts covered her mind.

Why should I get into all this?

Not sure what Ankur must have thought about me…

Aren’t I hurting Nimit by doing this?

Why am I risking my already settled life?

And while processing all those negative thoughts, when she realized that she was getting late to pick Vihan, she rushed. On the way, she decided to avoid Ankur and if possible, hide herself in crowd. She did not want to see Ankur anymore. Somewhere that physical affection Ankur showed, had impacted her mind. She heard her phone buzzing with special notifications from Ankur but was not interested in looking at it.

At school gate, she spotted Ankur and before he could see her, she started walking in opposite direction. But before she could reach Vihan, Ankur reached to her.

Hey Keya, Ankur was standing behind her with same killer smile.

Hi…she said while being aloof

Looking beautiful, Ankur tried to talk

Yeah, that’s what you are interested in, Keya stroke back

And before Ankur could understand anything, she left with Vihan. Ankur kept staring at her back and tried to understand what went wrong.


Want to know what happened to this one night young love couple?

Stay tuned… 🙂

Love is an Adventure : Part 6

Love is an Adventure : Part 6

This story started as Part-1 and grew to  part-2, Part-3, Part-4 and Part-5..

Why someone is not responding? Hope everything is ok…Keya sent the message after seeing her four previous messages were read but not responded by Ankur. She was growing impatient and lots of thoughts – positive and negative, attacked her mind.

When you are known about the situation at other end, it’s easy to be patient or to not expect something. But when you are not known what’s going on at other end and you are so habituated with “Mutual Routine”, it’s tough to wait.

Tired Nimit was sleeping tight beside her but Keya had lost her sleep. By now, she was tired by checking phone for more than 100 times, checking notification tone, checking whether her messages were read or not….And now, she was just staring in dark, hoping and praying to listen from Ankur soon.

And it was around 2 am when Keya heard that known notification. She swiftly reached to phone and checked message. What she read was completely unexpected, at least at that moment.

Ankur : I have been struggling with myself for last few days, especially last few hours. I cannot do this anymore. I need to tell you something, Keya. I LOVE YOU. I know, it looks odd but I cannot control myself anymore. Waiting for you and your response.

Keya was thunderstruck. She never knew, Ankur will give word to the feeling so easily. She was still not sure, what that feeling of slightly discomfort with Nimit since last few days, without reason. But now, her heart was answering that question.

None of us can love/like multiples with same intensity/feeling. For years, Keya kept convincing herself that Nimit was the one for her but after meeting Ankur, something was changed. Of course, she was not ready to accept the truth that she was in love but she was not in position to deny it. Ankur did not do anything specific for her but she was feeling irresistible attraction for him. Somewhere in heart, she was feeling guilty but one part of her heart was happy to find someone for whom she felt that undefined feeling of love. She kept staring at phone screen in dark.

Now, it was Ankur’s turn to grow impatient.

Did I do anything wrong?

What would be her response?

Hope she will not stop talking.

What if she ..?

Why isn’t she responding?

Yes, men are equally impatient and emotional when it comes to love. Ankur’s mind was out of control. He started thinking about all possibilities and with each moment of wait, negative possibilities took over.

Wish, I would not have sent that message. I do not want to lose her, he talked to himself. He kept pacing in room while looking at Revati.

And almost after 45 minutes, his phone buzzed. He quickly checked it and it was Keya.

Keya :  🙂

Without any word, Keya had said something, which made Ankur incredibly happy. He literally kissed that smile on phone.

So true it is….Love changes everything in a moment. At one moment, It lifts you to the mountain peak and it makes you fall to the ground at other moment.

As of now, both love birds, although away from each other, were feeling on top of the world. For the whole night, they kept chatting…exploring each other’s life, experiences and desires.  That darkness of the night brought an unexpected brightness to these love birds….

Stay tuned to know what happened next…

P.S. : Yes, this post shows, I am back from vacation and blog is obtaining my attention again. So you are safe, if you want to wait. Will keep up the promise to publish next episode soon 🙂
