We’re still at Sameer’s house. Siya is helping Ahana in packing of her bags. She is going to stay with us. I’m sitting in the hall with Kabir.
“Riyan, are you really ready for this?” Kabir asked.
“Ready for what?” I asked back. I’m sitting, placing my elbow on my lap.
“Ready to live with Anaya who is married. I know you love her, but when she stays with you, will you able to maintain distance?” He asked a serious question.
I moved my hand through my hair and replied to him, mused. “I don’t know, I just want to see her happy and take her out of the darkness. It will be difficult to control my feeling when she is in front of me, but I have no other choice. This is the only way she can get fine and find herself again.”
I really want to see a smile on her face.
“I’m with you always.” He placed his hand over my shoulder. I smiled faintly.
After that, I went to see Ahana.
“Thank you so much, Siya, for helping me. It really means a lot to me.” Ahana said to Siya.
“We’re friends now, and I can do anything for my friends. And also I love to help people.” Siya replied her, holding her hand.
I’m listening to their conversation, standing outside of the room. They both are sitting on the bed.
As I stepped into the room, they both looked up at me. I passed a small smile to her.
“I just come.” Siya stood up and walked out of the room after last time glancing at me and leaving me with Ahana alone in the room. I settled down in front of her.
She is gazing at me. “Riyan, I’m scared. What if he comes out of jail?” She asked and her eyes glinted with fright.
I placed my hand on her face and gently stroke her face, gazing at her fondly. “He won’t come, trust me,” I assured her, blinking my eyes.
She looked at me, appalled. “Just take me away from here, Riyan. I can’t stay here any longer. I feel suffocated here. I don’t,” She suddenly started breathing heavily and I became anxious for her.
“Just calm down, Ahana. We’re going from here. You will feel better there.” I reassured her, caressing her hair and clasped her hand with my other hand.
Tears started trickling down her cheeks. She became hysterical, her lips quivered, and she started crying. My heart is aching painfully after seeing her like this.
“Ahana, please, don’t cry. Everything is fine.” I implored, wiping her tears.
She looked at me with her sorrowful eyes. “I just can’t control myself. I don’t trust my life.” She hiccuped. She is sounding so hopeless. I can’t see her like this.
I cupped her face and pulled her face closer to my face. “Then Trust me, Ahana. I’ll make everything fine. I won’t let anybody harm you.” I’m looking deeply into her eyes, my eyes are filled with immense love.
She sobbed. “I trust you, Riyan, but I’m sorry. I can’t-can’t trust my life.” She shuttered and cried, resting her head against my chest. I embraced her in my arms and let her cry. Her condition is really bad. I’ve to make her fine soon because I can’t see her in pain anymore. Her condition is shattering my heart.
Within an hour, we reached my house at night. I asked one of the maids to clean a room for her. We settled down in the hall. Ahana is looking better now.
“Riyan, thank you so much. You know, I’m so relieved to be out of the hell.” Her eyes shimmered and her lips curved in a contented smile as she uttered. A smile flashed on my face too after seeing her smile. She looks more beautiful with the smile on her face.
“I want to see your house, will you show me?” She asked excitedly.
“Of course, why not?” As I agreed, her eyes glinted with the excitement. I just smiled at her broadly. I’m happy to see her excited.
Then we both stood up. I clasped her hand and led her upstairs to show her my room. I’m giving her a tour of my house by showing her swimming pool area, Siya’s room, garden and terrace. She is admiring the whole house like an excited kid. I just can’t stop myself from gazing at her. She is looking at the house, and I’m looking at her with affection and love. I can gaze at her like this all day. She is heavenly beautiful as like an angel.
We’re coming back to the hall, she squealed. “Your house is so beautiful, Riyan.” I just smiled at her.
After dinner, I led her to her room. I asked her to change. She took her nightwear from her bag.
“You won’t go?” She asked like a scared kid before going to the bathroom to change her clothes.
I shook my head. “I’m not going anywhere, don’t worry.” I placed my hand on her face and ascertained her.
She nodded and strolled to the bathroom. As she glanced at me before closing the door, I passed a bright smile to her. She closed the door.
I settled down on the sofa and mused at the floor. I’m wondering about Ahana’s condition. She’s scared, but trying to be normal, I can see this. But I’m happy, at least she is trying to be normal.
I moved my eyes up at her as she stepped out of the bathroom. She is looking ethereally gorgeous in sky blue nightwear, her hair is open, falling over one side of her shoulder. I stood up from the sofa and strolled towards her.
“Now you should sleep,” I uttered, and she nodded her head. She ambled towards the bed and lay down. I covered her with the comforter, smiling at her. She is gazing at me silently.
As I stepped to walk, she suddenly stopped me by clasping my hand. First I looked at our hands, and then I swept my eyes at her face. I can vividly see the fear in her grey bewitching eyes.
“Don’t go, stay with me, please. I’m scared to sleep alone.” She implored, holding my hand tighter, her eyes are full of innocence.
I knelt down on the floor beside the bed. “I’m not going anywhere.” I squeezed her hand to assure that I’m with her and I’m gazing at her lovingly.
“Now close your eyes and sleep,” I said, caressing her hair affectionately with my other hand.
She held my hand firmly with her both hands and closed her eyes, placing my hand near to his heart. I’m just stroking her hair, gazing at her lovingly and praying to God to take away her all pain and fill her life with all the happiness of the world. As I moved closer to her face, my warm caressed her face and she instantly opened her eyes. She gazed at me innocently. I smiled at her and placed a soft kiss on her forehead, promising her that I’ll make her fine.
