    TWISTED FATE

    Part - 1

    The cool breeze slowly blowing on her face was doing the work of balm to her aching heart. “Why does this always happen to me? Whenever I try to find happiness I face sadness” she thought while watching a pair of pigeons that were just outside the window looking at her with their curious eyes.

    How happy she was few years back. There was nothing to brood about, at least, nothing as heart-wrenching as this one. It seems just like yesterday when she was happy about getting a job. It was not just any job, it was her dream job. She was all excited and anxious if she would be able to do justice to the opportunity life has given her after such a long wait.

    Kamya, Where are you dear? Come on. Hurry up.

    It was the sweet voice of her mother that brought her back from her self-doubt tour.

    Yes, mom. Coming. She ran down the stairs to see that her parents were waiting to wish her good luck. She was lucky she is blessed with such understanding parents who never objected her from following her dreams. It was just fate that had always gifted her bad luck in the end of the journey each time. But, this time she resoluted vehemently to follow her dream till the end no matter what. That was one of the biggest mistakes she has ever done in her life so far. She regrets remembering the day when she saw the ad in the paper related to her dream job. That wretched day has caused her a lot of pain. Pain, that was so unbearable that she even thought of ending her life.

    Her heart was brimming with happiness from the moment she received a call that she got selected. She along with her parents went out to celebrate and do some necessary shopping. That night she kept watching the stars for a long time in disbelief of her good luck. The next morning she woke up early or to say she couldn’t sleep at all. She got ready and was looking at her image in the mirror and thinking until her mother called her to inform that she is getting late.

    As it was her first day, like always her dad dropped her to the office and kissed her good luck. The moment she swung to mount the steps to reach the lift she saw a man looking at her with an amused smile on his face. She felt irritated and embarrassed at the same time as if she has been caught doing something childish. She kept her chin up and entered the lift the moment the doors opened with a swish sound. She noticed that he followed her into the lift and pressed the button of the same floor where she was also going. Though she didn’t view him directly, she was conscious of his every move. The proximity brought some unknown feeling in her. Before she could analyze what it was, the lift doors opened and she hurried out of it.

    All through the day she kept looking for him whenever someone passed her but didn’t find him after that incident. She felt relaxed and disappointed. “Now…why do I want to see that……” she couldn’t put a name to that irritatingly smiling face.

    PART 2

    The day passed without any problems. She made some friends and was happy with the start. So happy, that she didn’t want the day to end. When it was time to go home she bid goodbye to her new found friends and left. She already told her parents that she would come home on her own. She reached the nearby bus stop and kept waiting. Her father made an inquiry about the timings and bus numbers and gave her the information. While she was thus waiting, she felt that someone was watching her. Though she felt scared, she couldn’t help but turn to see who it was as she was the only one left in the stand. She got irritated seeing the same person with the same smile on his face. She frowned and turned her face the other side. After few seconds, he came near her and “Hello. Didn’t anyone come to pick you up?”

    I gave him a ‘I would kill you if I could’ kind of look and said ‘NO’. I was getting furious with his attitude. What does he think of himself and why do I have to answer his questions?

    Luckily before he could ask anything else I saw my bus coming and felt relieved. I mounted the bus without looking back and went to find a seat near the window. Window seat has been my favorite since childhood days. I kept looking out. The new road, new malls, everything was so beautiful, filled with so many people. When the conductor came asking for the ticket, she noticed that he was also there right behind her.

    “Are you following me?” she asked in a very angry tone.

    “Don’t tell me you are the only one residing in that whole locality!” he said with the same amused smile.

    Kamya turned red with anger and sat so straight as if her spine couldn’t bend. Even though he said nothing after this she was aware of his smile all the while. She wanted to hit him hard on the face but stopped the urge telling herself that he didn’t anything wrong but giving that smile.

    She realized that he too got down at the same stop. She didn’t dare to say anything to him as she already knew his answer. She kept quiet and walked in a medium pace towards her home so that he won’t think that she is afraid of him that is why she is running. She knew that he was right behind her all the time. The moment she reached home and opened the front door she turned back and saw no one. Was she imagining his presence all this time? She wasn’t sure anymore.

    The moment she entered inside she was bombarded with so many questions by her parents who were eagerly waiting for her. She happily replied to what they have asked and narrated about each minute excluding this strangers meeting. By the time she was back to her room and lay in bed she was happy that she took hold of the opportunity. She had a sound sleep with some sweet dreams. She was woken by his kiss in her dream. She was shocked with this. She saw her image in the mirror. She was pale and was shaken by her dream. “How can I dream about him? That too this?!” she thought looking at herself one more time. When she heard her mother’s voice she brushed her thoughts away and went to get ready for office. She informed her father that she would go to office on her own and asked him to not strain himself. He reluctantly agreed to this as he knew that once his daughter has decided about something she wouldn’t budge unless there is some strong reason to.
