Chapter 6

DTL6

Four hours after the surgery, the doctors announced that Love and Sahil could now meet Aarush, who was conscious. They both rushed to the emergency ward and saw their friend, who looked fine from face, but had a lot of bandages around his stomach area.

‘What the fuck were you doing with Koel, dude?’ Love snapped.

‘Hey, calm down!’ Sahil snorted.

‘Hey guys, you both are here?’ Aarush was still partially unconscious

‘Yes! Only because of us, you underwent the surgery, but tell me what the fuck happened?’ Love couldn’t help himself.

‘You, just get out…’ Sahil asked Love to leave after almost all the nurses in the ward, gave them both a dirty stare.

‘Yeah, right. I am too angry and frustrated on too many things right now. I better leave!’ Love went out, leaving Aarush alone with Sahil.

‘Are you fine?’ Sahil calmly sat down next to Aarush.

‘Yeah, I’m sorry you guys had to go through so much trouble.’

‘Hey, just relax okay.’

‘Can you pass me some water?’ Aarush’s hand couldn’t reach the side-table.

‘Yeah, wait…’ Sahil grabbed the plastic cup and filled it with water. Aarush drank it all in one go.

‘Where is Koel? And how is she?’ Aarush asked.

‘Dude, no!’ Sahil closed his eyes in disappointment. He knew how much Radhika was in love with this man, and he could spoil everything now.

‘C’mon man, tell me? Is she fine?’ Aarush was worried and tensed.

‘Yes, she is absolutely fine. She isn’t hurt at all, not even an inch, and look at you!’

‘Thank God…’ Aarush lied back down with some relief.

‘You are such a miserable pig, you are all worried about Koel and you don’t even want to know about Radhika who is crying since yesterday!’

‘Yeah, I know. First she has to humiliate me publicly and then cry because I had an accident? Why is she being so fake, I don’t understand?’ Aarush looked at Sahil who had no answer.

‘Listen man, I’ve no idea what happened between both of you at the hotel yesterday, but I do know one thing that she is the one for you. She really loves you, I don’t know why you can’t see that!’

‘I love her too man! It’s not like she’s the only one in this relationship. I’m there too. I went to propose her yesterday and look what she did. She turned me down in front of what thirty people! If she really loves me and wants to spend the rest of her life with me, then why did she say a no yesterday?’

‘I told you I don’t know what happened between you two yesterday. But I think now you should at least call her.’

‘Why should I call her man? She isn’t worried about me. You guys came all the way from Mumbai to here, and she would still be at home, sleeping if doing nothing else!’ Aarush looked away. He knew Radhika loved sleeping!

‘You are so wrong this time. She insisted us both to take her along, but we asked her to stay so that there is someone in the office. And secondly, we didn’t want her to know that you are with Koel right now. If she comes to know about all this, about the night you spent with Koel…’

‘Hey? What night? I did nothing. Nothing happened between us. We were just catching up as old friends!’

‘Great, then try to understand this thing when Radhika spends a night with some old friend, hanging around with him and returning to you the next morning!’

‘Dude, don’t step over your limit. I still love her!’ Aarush stared back at Sahil. His possessiveness for Radhika was clear in his eyes, his insecurity showing up in the form of anger.

‘Fine, but do try to understand this thing from her point of view as well. She said a ‘no’ to you yesterday, I know that was wrong, but maybe she wanted to talk about something? Maybe she had something in mind? Why else would she deny a man with whom she’s living with since two years? And what you did in return? Eloped from the city and spent a night with Koel, doing God knows what!’

‘I told you nothing happened between us…’ Aarush’s voice fell over dumb ears as Sahil walked out of the emergency ward too.

Alone in the hospital bed, Aarush reconsidered Sahil’s thought about calling Radhika once and at least telling her about his health.

‘Sister…’ Aarush called one of the nurses on duty.

‘Yes, Sir?’

‘Can I please make a call?’

‘Wait, don’t get up!’ nurse warned Aarush and went to the staff-room to get her mobile phone.

‘Here…’

‘Thank you…’

Aarush dialled Radhika’s number and Radhika picked the call from an unknown number in first ring.

‘Hello?’ Radhika said.

‘Radhika…?’ Aarush said with a coldness in his voice.

Listening to her own name from Aarush’s lips made Radhika break down. She started crying on phone uncontrollably. Aarush sighed. They both were together just yesterday at the Intercontinental, but talking on phone today seemed like they were talking after years. Neither did Aarush want to say anything, nor Radhika wanted to reply. They both just listened to each other’s voices after one whole day that had turned their lives upside down!

‘I’m coming home, baby…soon…’ Aarush whispered after a pause of five minutes. The nurse was roaming around.

‘I love you, Aarush…’ Radhika was still crying.

‘Yeah…’ Aarush looked at the nurse and hung the call.

‘Thanks…’ he held the phone out for the nurse who was still giving him weird looks, ‘It was my mother…’ Aarush smiled stupidly.

‘No problem.’ Nurse took her phone back and went away.

Aarush lied down on the bed, thinking about the good times he spent with Radhika and fell asleep under the influence of drugs and sedatives.

    Hey Mehek !

    I just thought you deserve to know this.
    There is this page on Facebook named ‘Trust gives pain and expectation kills happiness’ and one of the admin of the this page named Priyanka Bhatnagar copies your stories and post them on that page and takes all the credit that obviously you deserve.

    Actually I’ve been reading the stories on that page from i don’t know like last 8-9 months I guess and I just love them so much that I can’t express. I was so impressed by the stories.

    But today a friend of mine send me the link to your blog and that is when I came to know that those were your stories and that they were written by you and i was so hurt to know that she was taking all the credits. I am not sure if all them were yours but I saw ‘dare to love’ and ‘tantra’ on your blog which i’ve read there.

    PS- You’re an awesome writer and i wish i would’ve known about you being the original writer of these stories earlier. Trust me you have no idea how much i appreciated the stories.
    🙂

    • Mehek

      October 18, 2015

      Hey Juhi, thanks dear! Thanks a lot for telling me 🙂 Honestly, there are many pages and facebook-blogs who copied my work in past, and have still been copying it shamelessly. It’s very tough to monitor everything and maybe that’s one disadvantage of posting stories on open-platforms. But readers are more important than copiers, so I don’t bother about them much, let them do what they want to. Because ultimately, it’s ‘they’ who wait for me to write new stories so they can copy and paste it 😛 Those connected with me directly, know that all my content is 100% original, and they get to read stuff ‘before’ the copiers can paste it on their pages! But thanks again, I really appreciate your effort…

  • Juhi

    October 18, 2015

    Damn you’re so good at this.
    I love the way you describe everything in your stories. That’s awesome. I’m also a big fan of yours now. 🙂

    Btw will you send me the links to all of your pages ? I would just love to follow you.

    I believe that there is definitely a beautiful story in your life. One cannot write, make something up without any experiences,at least few. I would like to hear just a few words about yours.Will you share?

    • Mehek

      January 21, 2016

      Thank you 🙂 I believe it isn’t necessary to have a story in order to write one. Fiction writers are known as ‘fiction’ writers for a reason 🙂 And by your logic, every murder-mystery should be written by a murderer himself if nothing else! 😛

    I empathise for Koel the most in this story, felt like everyone was judgemental towards her and the leads themselves were flawed characters. Fun read nevertheless!!!

    • Mehek

      January 22, 2017

      Every story has protagonists and antagonists, and sometimes it’s your perception. Readers are sometimes better judges of the story 🙂
