(Yep, the hug is to bribe you into reading the story.)
Oh wait...why am I here?
*listens to a 'voice' (lots of those in my stories)*
Ah yes...I am here to tell a story!!
Well, let's get down to business.
Honestly, I am not famous for writing serious stuff.
I AM famous otherwise - ask ...uhh...never mind...
Anyway, as I was saying, I don't usually write 'serious' stuff because it takes up a lot of energy, but this time, I am going to try it.
So without much ado, let's get on with it.
Oh, and a few points to take care of:
1. I am NOT going to write 'romantic scenes' unless it becomes totally unavoidable, which it won't, so basically, you can't expect more than a "and they hug" from me.
2. I am busy preparing for my entrance exam, and I like to say things in the simplest manner possible, so please don't expect longer parts or complain about the short length...all such comments will simply be ignored. I am sorry if that sounds rude, but like I said, I prefer to make my point quickly and simply.
3. I don't really like all that PMing business, so please try to add the thread as one of your watch topics, if you are really interested in reading.
4. Read, enjoy, and please do give me your feedback - it's invaluable!!!!!
"Talk to me once, please! Abhay, I love you. You are my best friend. You cannot do this. You cannot give up on me."
There was no response. He just sat there - a sculpture. "Jenny carved him from stone." a part of her thought - the part that had started taking over from the moment Pia had seen her world coming apart. It was a part that was cold, logical to the point of being...what was that word again? Pia didn't know.
Then the other part of her took over - the part that was slowly dying. The part that was warm, that loved and hungered to receive love. The part that was being ripped to shreds by her best friend's rejection.
Pia grabbed him by the shoulders and shook him, but he was silent. Then he got up, pushing her away from him.
"Goodbye Pia. Don't show me your face ever again."
Pia was left alone under the tree that had become their favourite haunt over the years. Silent sobs racked her body.
They had found her there two hours later, broken, unable even to speak...
The cheerful voice broke into her reverie. Pia didn't move. She drew in a deep breath, and then another to calm herself.
Misha came around to her and hugged her.
"What's up girl? Kis ke khayaalon mein lost ho?"
"No one Mish. I was just thinking of the homework we got today. I really need to go home and do it."
Misha groaned. "You mean I need to go home and start it. You will take only ten minutes to do it, but I will need the whole week's time that Miss D has given us, and more!"
Pia laughed, "Yeah right. Let's go."
They walked away, and Misha linked her arm through Pia's.
Behind the spot where they had been standing moments ago, a bush rustled...
