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.

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…
