Swasan: Fix You (Episode 11)

Guys its a short bonus update. Enjoy reading !!

~~I’ll miss you~~
Swara’s pov ~~

My hands were unsteady, shaking as I picked up my phone and debated whether to call him or not. He was leaving in the next 24 hours and I had one last chance to meet him. But dad had ordered me not to see him anymore. What do I do ? My mind was flooded with hundreds of thoughts as my phone started ringing loudly.
This One Directions’ most annoying ringtone was really annoying.

“Hello?” I answered the phone in a much bored and drained out voice, not caring much who was on the other end of the line.

“What happened to your voice ?” The familiar voice spoke and I knew at once that it was none other than the person I was debating whether to call or not…Sanskar

“Nothing much. What’s up ?” I asked trying to sound normal. But I knew I was sounding horrible.

“Okay, how was your exam ? Don’t say it sucked. I know you must’ve rocked it.” He said as I heard a little chuckle from his end.

“I did great for a change. Thanks for asking though…” I said.
“Did you call only to ask about my exams or something else ?” I added.

He was quiet for a while, I only heard shuffling going on but not his voice.
“Sanskar, are you there ?” I asked, hoping that he hadn’t hung up.

“Yeah, yeah. I’m there. Sorry.” He muttered.

“Okay, listen. If you’re free today can we meet ? It’s kinda….important.” I asked. I knew I had only one chance to meet him, nobody would even come to know about it! It was just so hard to let him go without saying goodbye. But it was not just about goodbye. It was also about the stupid article that was printed in the newspapers.

“Sure. What time and place ?”

“Half an hour ? Near the lake ? If that’s okay with you…oh, and there won’t be many people around there.” I said.

“Y-yeah, o-okay. I’ll see you then, bye.” He said and hung up.
Something in his voice told me that he too wanted to talk to me about something. Maybe he too had seen the newspapers and wanted to talk about it. But what if he starts HATING me because of those articles ? I’m certainly NOT good for his image…

Maybe I won’t see him again, but I only wanted to clear things between us before he left.

I had reached the lake side a way too early. I had to wait another ten minutes for Sanskar and being the impatient person I was, I kept looking at the watch every now and then.

In front of me was one of the most quiet and beautiful places in Mumbai. It’s really hard to find peace in this city. But this one place was my favourite. I used to come here as a kid with Ragini and we used to throw pebbles in the water. There was always a competition — Whose pebble would go the farthest ? I used to let Ragini win. I never regretted losing that game. The expression on Ragini’s face when she won was most important to me. She was my baby sister…and still she is…

I was facing the lake thinking about the old happy times when a little tap on my shoulder startled me.

“Boo.” Came a little voice from my back. Of course it was Sanskar…whom I’d been expecting since last ten minutes.

“That’s not a very good way to greet someone.” I said.

He laughed. “You zoned out again ? Swara in wonderland. We should makes movie like that, what say ?” He said standing beside me.

“That wasn’t a polite greeting. . . Anyway, nice to meet you.” I said refusing to look at him.

“Nice to meet you too.” He said shrugging as we stood in silence looking at the lake with still water surrounded by tall green trees. Now this silence wasn’t comforting at all. It was killing me from inside. So many things were left unsaid…so many thoughts were piled up in my head. I don’t know why but I wanted him to say something first. Say something Sanskar !

“Okay, so this silence is depressing.” He stated as if he read my mind.

“I-I know…” I said. We sighed.

“WE NEED TO TALK.” We both said at the same time.

Great! I could feel the tension in the air around me increase. The only question that popped in my mind was — What are we ? No that wasn’t the only question. Are we friends ? Will we ever see each other again ? And the most important question was — What do I feel for him ?

“Alright. Shoot. What is it ?” He asked bringing me back to reality. Yeah, we needed to talk. Here goes nothing…
“Well about yesterday, that article –” I trailed off as he cut off me in between. He seemed really annoyed with something.

“I know. I know. I read that. It’s almost in all newspapers and on Twitter.” He said as if he was really annoyed by the news. I stood like a stone.

“I’m sorry Swara. I guess I had an idea about all this. I should’ve been more careful.” He said nervously.
I still had that dumbfounded expression on my face.
‘Swara its not time to act so dumb! Speak up!’ My mind said but I just kept looking at him as if I hadn’t heard anything he said.

“You look creepy with that dumbfounded expression. It’s cute but it’s kinda creepy too. So snap out of it Swara…” He said snapping his fingers in front of me dragging me back to reality.

“I-I m sorry.” I said looking away but I could still feel his eyes on me.

“So ?” He asked slightly annoyed by my cold reaction.

“So what?” I asked.

“So Swara, what do you’ve to say about what I had just said. Were you even listening ?” He asked.

“Of-of course I was. What are you saying ? I’m not deaf, okay ? I was just thinking about what you said.” I said defensively.

“Look I’m really sorry if I caused you any trouble. But I’m leaving tomorrow…” He said.
Leaving…he was leaving tomorrow. He’ll forget me ? He’ll forget everything ? The question here was…
Did I even want him to go ? Did I want us to remain friends ? Or was it something more than that…
I had no freaking idea what was happening to me. All I could see was that I was probably losing a dear friend. Or a friend who could have been something more…

“Swara, say something ?” He said placing his hand on my shoulder.

“I think I’ll…I’ll miss you.” I blurted out and surprisingly I didn’t regret saying it. I just wanted to say it and it wasn’t a lie. I would miss him. I’d miss somebody whom I’d just met a couple of days ago. But that somebody had become somehow an important part of my life… I just couldn’t figure it out in what way. What were we ? Us.. Him and me..

Suddenly, I felt two strong arms wrapping around me pulling me into a warm hug. Oh god! His scent… He smelled so good…

“Don’t worry Swara. I’ll be back soon…” He said rubbing my head. I didn’t even notice that a single tear had somehow managed to make its way from my eye socket.

Was I crying ? Why didn’t I want him to go ? Why this feeling ?
