Swati Singh - Arya's best friend and very sensible girl.
I will be updating the characters and chapters as the story proceeds.Thanks
Somewhere in Hauz Khas, Delhi there was a big 3 storied house. The nameplate read - "Mathurs"The house belonged to Mr. Alok Mathur a businessman, his wife Ragini, a daughter Aarya and a son Akash.Aarya was a software engineer who used to work in Pune. However, she had resigned and returned from Pune a month back. She was a petite slim girl with gorgeous eyes and a childlike innocent face.Right now she was sitting quietly on the dining table sipping her tea.Ragini fussed around the table serving breakfast and urging Aakash a 16-year-old high school student to keep away his mobile game." Come on Akash. Keep that thing away you will be late for school." She said sternly."Yes, mom just a minute." He replied without looking up."I don't understand what to do with this boy. Aarya please tell him to concentrate on his s
The house was buzzing with energy. There were guests, relatives, and friends who all contributed to the mayhem. The sound of dholak and shahnai ascertained the fact that there was a wedding. Wedding of Aarya Mathur.Aarya and Shashank had practically grown up together.They went to the same school, though Shashank was 2 years senior.Shashank was also Arya's best friend. They were so close that most of their friends assumed they were in a relationship. This was far from true.Their relationship had always been platonic."Aarya careful you will spoil your Mehendi " Asha's voice broke her reverie.Aarya smiled looking at her friend."Dont worry Asha I will be careful."Asha came and sat near her looking at her Heena "Lovely design. Where's the groom's name?"Aarya laughed "Asha you know I hate these cheesy things."Asha said "Silly girl!
That mysterious stranger had disappeared in the crowd so I focused on looking for my friends. I was walking carefully trying to avoid the mass of swaying bodies. Suddenly I was knocked off by one the exuberantly dancing fellow.I fell backward and closed my eyes expecting to fall on the hard floor instead I was cushioned by strong pairs of arms. Knocked out of breath I opened my eyes and I saw those deep blue goggles again.My breath stopped for a minute. Not by the impact but by THE IMPACT.His face was so near I could have kissed him. He had an amusing half-smile on his face.For no reason, I was shivering.He helped me stand straight then said, "Careful! I won't always be around to rescue you."I felt a blush creeping up my neck "I thought you left".He replied "Dont worry I am not following you. I was going in the same direction as you"."No, I didn't mean that...I..mean I didn't realize you were still here."He smirked, "Isn't it good that I was still around?"I giggled "Yes...Tha
The new guy narrowed his eyes and looked at me curiously. He was tall, with broad shoulders, and heartbreakingly good looks. Dressed in a white tee he was clearly eye-catching. He looked familiar.I didn't realize we were being introduced.He offered his hand for a handshake "Hi I am Ishaan Shekhawat."I felt a nudge from Swati."Aarya," I said.He smiled "Aarya Stark ?"I laughed "No just Mathur. Aarya Mathur.""I bet you get that a lot!" He smiled."I am used to it" I replied.&nb
Wind and raindrops whipped off my face. Ishaan was driving at a breakneck speed. I felt as if I was living a dream, last few hours were bliss. It wasn't like I never got male attention. I got enough of it! but very few of them caught my interest. I was just 22 all I wanted to do was have some fun.I looked around but couldn't spot any other member of the gang. It was like we were driving alone on the highway. It was dark and we were whizzing past the thick vegetation.I spoke aloud near his ear "Arent we going too fast?"He replied, "You want me to slow down?"I said "I dont mean the speed. I can't see anybody from our group."He chuckled "Dont worry I am not kidnapping you. I know where we are going".I suddenly visualized us lost in the woods indulging in all sorts of wild things that had never crossed my mind before. I took a deep breath, I barely knew this guy! And yet I decided to ride off with him? A tiny voice quivered in my mind.I said, "It is better if you slow down a bit, it
I didn't see him again for 1 week. Was I hoping to? Maybe.I was busy with my work. Though he used to appear in my thoughts quite often. I had already stalked him on social media but hesitated from sending him a friend request. I believe, men should make the first move. I am old fashioned that way.I had not heard from him since that day. I had not given him my number. He didn't ask.I wondered if ever thought of me.On Friday I was shutting off my laptop happy at the prospect of finally getting a weekend.My phone buzzed, it was an unknown number. A husky voice called from the other side."Hello, I hope you little feet have recovered from the stressful hiking." I walked back to the flat smiling to myself for no apparent reason.Swati gave me a meaningful look but didn't say anything.After freshening up I plopped down near Swati. She took off her headphones and said -"I know you are dying to say something, come on shoot off."I giggled "Well the movie was good and dinner was also good. Ishaan is a dreamboat! He is from MIT. He has his own company and he owns a freaking BMW !!"Swati exclaimed "What?!? I knew this guy was loaded, which company?""I forgot to ask I was too excited about the BMW".Swati rolled up her eyes "Did he tell you anything about his family?".I shook her head in a No.Swati gave me an exasperated look "Anyways did he you know to attempt anything?"I turned pink "Why would he do that?""Why else would he take you in a dark theatre other

We were seated in one of the swanky places."What do you know about gaming?" Ishaan asked."My 15-year-old brother is addicted to it. I used to think it's a waste of time until I learned about the development side of it. It's fascinating how much creativity goes into it.""Thank God! Finally someone who appreciates me! Now gaming is huge. There's X box games, PlayStations, Then there are fantasy games like warcraft, Chinese ghost story, etc. Btw I love fantasy games."He paused " Most of these fantasy games are based in China, Korea, or the US. They have detailed characters inspired by different mythologies and comics even movies. However, there are hardly any Indian gaming companies. According to our research, there is a high demand for it. Especiall
