Days were not the same and so were they.
She never complained and he never realised.
He became busy with his growing new friends circle and could not even spare enough time for her.
Days passed on and one day when he called her , it was not reachable. He tried after an hour but the response was same. Seconds turned into minutes, minutes turned into hours, he couldn't contact her. A fear had started ,an unknown turmoil started to build up, something was wrong. Usually she used to pick up the calls by 2 rings. He tried calling Tanisha. Tanisha being their common friend was the only way he could contact Sanaya, a few seconds later he received a call, "Ritwik! Sanaya....Sanaya has met with an accident , she's no more...Can you hear me ??? Ritwik?"
Phone dropped from his hand, he couldn't hear anymore, he felt as if his world was shattered.
He collapsed to the floor, tears rolled down his cheek. He was staring blankly at the wall. The smiling face of his only love was playing on repeat in his mind. He rushed to the hospital sobbing all the way wishing what he heard was a joke. When he saw her,
May be the thunders of nature were nothing compared to the thunders of his heartache.
He kissed her forehead for one last time and wept .
"I am sorry Saya. Sorry for being a jerk. Sorry for not being able to spend enough time with you. You are the best thing that has ever happened to me. "
He couldn't speak anymore. The girl whom he called his Saya is no more. His very shadow has left her.
His eyes were getting blurred and the last thing he thought again and again before being unconscious was "What if"....
He woke up to the voice of a girl shouting "wake up u kumbhakaran!you nasty buffalo... There's a snake in your lobby ... WAKE UP Ritwik"
He suddenly jerked at the sound of her voice. He ran towards the sound he was desperate to hear.
There she was, faking a shivering expression as he towards her. Ritwik hugged like there was no tomorrow.
Sanaya was stunned at this sudden gesture. She hugged him back and said " I am sorry, I didn't know you would be so worried. I just wanted to fool you"
He silenced her and smiled saying " It was the best april fool ever.
Miss Sanaya , I am sorry to not be able to spend enough time with you. I want you to punish me by spending your entire life with me. Will you be mine? And its not a april fool
, just so you know!
Will you agree to be my better half,my partner in crime,the mother of my lovely children?"
"I do, I always do Ritwik "
