Swasan: Fix You (Episode 24)

The First Round~~

Sanskar’s pov ~~

It was the day. The day when we would be performing against one of the most powerful musical bands – The Beatles. The Fergal Concert hall had always been special to me, I had to perform well at this hall at any cost.

I was nervous, as I sat in the green room. The show was about to start. Kabir was already on the stage while the rest of us were gearing up for the big performance.

I could feel my heart beating faster as the cheers and screams of the people in the hall filled my ears.

This was the first and the last chance to prove myself. To prove it that it was my band and I was on the right track. To prove it to myself that I wasn’t being distracted. To prove it to Swara that I wanted to make things right.

I was lost in my own thoughts when a light tap on my shoulder startled me. Kabir stood in front of me. Hand on his waist, looking at me, confused.

“What? C’mon its about to start.” He said, I guess surprised by how I was sitting alone. Everyone else had walked out. I was so disturbed by various thoughts running in my mind.

“Uh, yeah, Kabir. I’m ready!” I said and got up to get set for the performance. As I was about to walk out, Kabir stopped me.

“Snuku? Wait…” He said as his voice echoed in the room. I stopped and turned around. He motioned me to come back.

“Are you sure you want to perform in this round?” He asked. I was taken aback by his sudden question.

What does he mean by that? Do I want to perform? Ofcourse I do! Why would he say such a thing?

“Ofcourse I want to perform in this round! Why would you think like that?” I asked.

He sighed and placed a hand on my shoulder.
“Look, I know you’re nervous. You want to perform and prove yourself today. But we can’t take a risk, mate. We’ve to qualify for this round and for that you need to perform well. If you don’t, it may affect the others. So are you sure you can perform, today?” He asked.

I know what he meant. He thought I wasn’t confident enough to perform. He wasn’t wrong. The way I sat pressurising myself, anyone would think I was losing my confidence.

“No Kabir, I’m confident. I can do this. I want to do this.I won’t let you and my band down.” I said assuring him that i would give my 100% to the performance. He looked at me for a couple of seconds and quickly nodded.

“Alright buddy. We gotta do this. We can do this.” He said, patting my shoulder. I nodded as we both walked out onto the backstage.

I sat down on the chair with my guitar. I was all set to go after the current performance. Their performance had started and I looked back for Swara. I needed to calm down and only she could do that at the moment.

But she was nowhere to be seen.
Dammit…I wanted to go and look back for her nut instead I texted her.




I replied and sat back, paying my attention to their performance. They were doing it really well. Just then my phone buzzed.

Swara <3 : I'M HERE..JUST TURN AROUND! ^.^

It read…

I turned around to see Swara standing in the crowd. No make up, no fancy clothes, no high heels. Just a simple tee shirt with denims. Yet, she looked so beautiful. She smiled and waved at me. I waved back and smiled with a relief. Just as I was about to say something, the whole hall fell silent. I looked around and their performance was over.


We were next. We had to go. I was nervous. I had never been so nervous. I took one glance back at Swara. She was already looking at me. Her hair fell carelessly on her forehead, her eyes staring right at me, her smile had faded but still he looked at me hopefully.

All the best…she mouthed before flashing a smile. I smiled back and all of a sudden I realized that I was beginning to calm down. All the nervousness was going away and I was beginning to get good vibes. Her smile had lit my whole day and just watching her like that gave me the strength to fight my worries.

I was ready to go and perform. I walked into the stage towards the centre. Surrounded by cheers and people chanting my name, I felt only more confident.

There was always certain kind of magic in the air over there. You forget about everything once you step on the stage and all you can see and understand is your goal. The winning title. . .

I stood with my collar mic ready and started my lines. With every line I sang, my confidence increased. I was ready to rock with the same determination and make my band proud.

Swara's pov ~~

It was raining 'once more' and 'we love you' today! The Bad Boys were on fire, especially Sanskar.

It felt as if I was on the stage, singing the song, playing the guitar. My heart was in my mouth as he sung.

After their performance ended the hall roared. I couldn't have been prouder. I was relieved. I was overjoyed as everyone else was.

He ran upto the front of the stage taking off his guitar in between. I smiled and applauded for him. Just then someone spoke from my side.

"He did it. Didn't he?" The voice asked. The familiar voice was none other than Adarsh's. I nodded at his question with a smile and looked back on the stage.

Sanskar was already looking at me. He smiled and waved at me. I smiled and waved back not realizing that we were being shown on the big screen behind.

Suddenly the whole hall burst into cheers as I felt heat rising up my cheeks.

Adarsh bhai teased me from the back while I told him not to do so. I was embarrassed as they kept on showing Sanskar and I on the screen.

Sanskar flashed a smile and winked. He said something I couldn't understand. What? I mouthed and gestured something. I paid attention and realized that he was saying – I love you… Publicly!

The day passed so quickly watching the round. Specially watching him. I had been hearing him since a year and I couldn't help but admire the way he was determined to win and his passion for music. And that day was no exception. The Bad Boys won the first round.

He had that spark in his eyes when he lifted the trophy that put him out of the crowd. . .


I know this was a little boring episode. But I couldn't think much on it because of my physics homework :(

And about the song, think any song from your own imagination :)
