Hey everyone ,
You can read my previous chapter here- Chapter 7
Here’s there next chapter –
The moment you are ready to quit is usually the moment life gives you suprises and miracles happen.
Thus this happened,
Within a hour I received a call. Yeah it was Karthick. My mind said not to attend the call but I ended up following my heart.
Karthick: Anu…what happened to you..?
Anu: Im fine senior just a small accident.
Karthick: Anything serious..? You are fine right?
Anu: Nothing to worry senior. Im perfectly alright.A small fracture of my tibia and tarsal bones…and sutures over my leg thats it.
Karthick: How did this happen..? Are you alright now..?
(My mind voice be like… Haha how do i say that😂 )
Anu: senior nothing serious. Im on my way to chennai now. I have to undergo a minor surgery. I will call you later.
Karthick: ok Anu takecare.
( Still I dont know, how I spoke to him in such a sweet tone that too within few hours of the accident. In between the pain and my thoughts, his call made me happy.)
You know what… I’m that kind of girl who would scream even for a small injection. But now see what happened😂😅.
Days passed…our exams started…. I somehow managed to study and pass the semester with average grades.
Feb 23 2017,
( Adhi’s birthday )
A very special day…
Last day of our exam…after celebrations I and Adhi started to our hometown. Once the train started I posted Adhi’s bday pics in social media.
Karthick: Hi anu…
Karthick: Hope so you did the exams well.
Anu: somewhat snr. Not bad.
( Actually I dont want to talk to him again so i ended the conversation with an emoji…but….lets see what happened )
Karthick: Convey my wishes to adhi..
( In between my love tale I forgot to tell about Adhi nd karthick😂. My crush has a crush over my best friend. Its not actually crush its just he always teases me that way. He knew that I will turn possesive once he talks about Adhi. Its normal right, once you are attached to someone you become possesive over them.)
Anu : sure senior.
( yeah I turned possesive but this time I didn’t express it. I dont want to let him know that. I dont want once again to feel the same kind of love and no more heartbreak).
Karthick : what did she say..?
Anu : she thanked you.
Karthick: she looks cute in those pics.
Anu : okay senior I will convey her.
Karthick : whats happening yar..? Is tis my anu…?
Anu : Sorry I didn’t get you.
Karthick : Actually i thought that you will start shouting on seeing my text.
Anu : oh…!!
(Actually i was burning inside. I didn’t express it. That moment I literally wanted to push adhi out of the train 😂. But why is he making these things. He knew it right. Even he is doing it just to turn me crazy and fight with him. Why this person whom I’m running away is coming again again to me.)
Karthick : then ..?
Anu : Nothing much.
But the conversation continued. He started asking the same set of questions, our boring same endless conversations.
In between my conversations I made up my mind why should I run away from him. Im not in love with him. May be not anymore. He is my good friend I can talk to him but without much of expectations. I spoke with him but not the way we used to. It was a long conversation after a very long gap. After sometime the old anu was back, not with love but the naughty girl. The conversation went on. And suddenly karthick spoke thus…
Karthick: Anu are you really single..?
(my mind voice be like… oh my gosh..!! Yeah just because of you )
Anu: Ahaa again…senior i hope so this is the 3rd time you are asking me.
Karthick: so you were counting..?
Anu: haha…okay im single. Now say me about your relationship status..?
Karthick: for what…?
Anu: you questioned me and so im asking in return…
Karthick : what will you do knowing whether im single or committed..?
Anu: if you were committed i will ask for a treat😉
Karthick: oh is it..then if im single….?
Anu: I will make a try..😂😂
Then we both started teasing each other and again the conversation went some miles but again he asked me the same question about my relationship status.
Karthick: okay i believe you are single but you might have a crushes right tell about them.
( Have you people experienced this, your crush asking who’s your crush😂😂. The best thing. I really ended up laughing at that text.)
I said him no i dont have any…blah blah blah…but he didn’t leave me…almost 4 hours went..i was about to reach in 30 mins. Then i made few coversations with my heart and mind. And then decided….
Anu: senior okay..i too have a crush…i dont know whether its a crush or not…but I like him a lot..may be more than a friend…but I’m not interested in love.
Karthick: Hmmmmm. Who is that lucky guy…?
Anu: Do you really want to know..?
Karthick: yes ofcourse.
( He used to ask me this often i dont know why he is so much interested in knowing my relationship status. But this particular day he was so intense and his questions was not only out of curiosity but beyond that i felt something. So…)
Anu: where are you right now ?
Karthick: at home
Anu: okay i will show him
Anu: yes i will. Go to your room.
Karthick: i came
Anu: Turn to your left
Anu: look into the mirror you can find him.
(After a minutes silence)
Karthick: stop teasing me anu. I kept following your commands to.
Karthick: you wont say me naah..
Anu: so you dont believe me..
Karthick: Are you serious…?
Anu: so you dont know this😆😂
Karthick: hmmm….i had a guess but i know the naughty anu who always do pranks and keeps teasing me.
Anu: so how was the feel…you are that lucky guy (may be unlucky😂).
Karthick: yeah lucky😂😂.
Anu: I swear. I like you a lot. You are my special person. You are my only crush.
I went offline..##
Actually my stop came. It was a 5 hour long conversation. May be the day i felt relieved. I conveyed him finally. Its not that i love him. I like a guy. Im bold enough to say that directly to him. I know he wont talk to me anymore. Im happy about it. We arent meant to be together but i ended conveying my feelings for him. Thats enough more than enough. I have previously made up many scenarios in my mind how to say this. But it happened today without any preparations like a suprise test. But far better than my imaginations. This is the best things about life. I have lost my friend by saying this but im happy i have said him.
And again I would like to emphasis that I Didn’t propose him… I don’t love him. He kept asking me. I just said him my crush.
“Just a crush “.
Nothing more than that….
If he had a guess that I had a crush on him then was he also interested ? Or was he just making conversation ?
I will leave you people here !
Will continue the next chapter shortly.
