I couldn't believe that she thought I was having a dinner date. After sometime I stopped laughing and found her looking at me in confusion.
"She was not my girlfriend.... she was my brother's wife and I would never take leave for such cringy things like dinner dates" I explained.
"Oh! I am sorry I got you wrong" She said looking down again.
"And who said dinner dates are cringy!" I heard her mumbling.
"And who said they're not?" I replied.
She looked up; her eyes widened.
"You heard that?!" She asked and I nodded.
"I told you not to hear everything I say" She said, rolling her eyes.
"It's not my fault if you mumble things loudly"
Before she could say anything, my phone rang. I checked the caller id and it was Rhea. I picked it up and said "What is it?"
"I am home. Now tell me everything" I could hear curiosity in her voice.
"Not now. Will call you later" I said and hung up the call without
Anjana's P.O.V"Have a good night, mam" He said and walked away after shutting the door. I was standing at the door and soaking the situation. It seemed as if I was missing something in between the whole day but soon shrugged it off and turned around, just to see the beautiful house interiors."I indeed had a good taste" I mumbled and walked to the couch before sitting on it.Everything was mostly in black color same as the office and it seemed classy. I was admiring the house when suddenly I remembered that I almost forgot about the cake. I stood up and went to kitchen and the sight in front of me was like a paradise."I am going to eat you" I said as I walked to the counter. I cut one more piece with knife and tossed it in my mouth. I was overwhelmed with the superb taste."I want to eat you whole right now but I have to resist" I said nodding. I picked it up and carefully placed it in the refrigerator.I came
--Ring Ring--I scrunched my nose and squeezed my eyes shut tightly, not wanting to get up. Again, the doorbell rang. I ignored and covered my face with the covers. After a minute, my phone started ringing. I groaned in frustration and reached my hands for my phone on the side table near the bed, still under the covers. I checked the caller id and picked it up."What is it?" I whined."Don't tell me you are still sleeping!" Neil, on the other side, almost shouted."Why the hell are you shouting?""I am not shouting and I beg you to get up right now. We would be late for office...In fact we are already late"With his words, I got my senses back and shot my sleepy eyes open and checked the time. It was 9:45 in the morning already. I sat up immediately and said "I am up. Don't worry. I'll be ready soon"With that I ended the call. I sighed deeply and took seconds to step down from the bed. Once I did, I didn't wait for my laz
After the handshake, we went silent and ate our breakfast silently. When we were done, he stood and gestured me to stand up. I stood up."Have your seat and wait for me" He said.I nodded and went to sit on my chair. I saw him clean the mess that mostly I created and went out of the office. After sometime, he came back with some files. He walked towards me and kept them in front of me at the table before sitting on one of the chairs on the other side of the table."Shouldn't you ask first before sitting in front of your superior?" I asked."Huh" He got startled and stood up immediately."Ah! Yes! Sorry mam. I was being careless. Can I sit, mam?" He asked.I started laughing because of his expressions. He furrowed his eyebrows after seeing me and tilted his head questioningly. I chuckled a bit more."What was that for?" He asked, sitting again."I haven't said yes yet" I said, being serious again.He stood up
It was silent in the car at first, but when I remembered something, I decided to break the silence. “About yesterday….” I said as he looked in my direction. I paused and as he grew curious, I saw from the peripheral view, he furrowed his eyebrows. “What is it?” He asked. “Why did you switch your phone off?” I asked looking at him. “When?” He asked, narrowing his eyebrows. “When I was asking you about the chair. You ended the call and when I tried calling you back, your phone was switched off” “Oh… I didn’t do it on purpose. My phone’s battery was dead” He paused for a moment before continuing “But when I called you back, you didn’t pick up either” I shot my glance at him and he looked towards me as well. He tilted his head and pressed his lips. ‘I must have slept by now I guess’ I thought. “You are lying, right?” I asked, almost confirming, not wanting to accept my defeat. “No, why would I?” I fu
Both of us went silent after Neil’s words. I couldn’t get words to say after that so I just went silent while looking down. It was sort of silent and awkward. “You should complete the file work now, I guess” I heard Neil saying to me. I looked up and nodded. “I think so too” I said as I got up and went to sit on my grant seat behind the table. I sat there and looked at Neil. He was sitting there and hadn’t moved an inch. It seemed like he was in some deep thoughts. Not sure about his actions and expressions as he was back facing me, I waited for him patiently to leave the office. “Aren’t you going to go?” I said when I noticed he was not planning to get up any soon. He turned to look at me and nodded. He got up and started walking towards the door. He opened the door and left without no word, closing the door behind him. “Hmm” I hummed in confusion and tilted my head. “Did you just tilt your head?” I asked myself when I
I was still hiding behind the couch when the door burst open. It was Neil and he was a panting mess. I swear when I looked him, my breath hitched as I got to reality afterwards in some seconds. I immediately ran towards him and held his hand as I started to pull him behind the couch.“What are you doing?” He asked while fighting back my hold and pull.“Why are you shouting? He might listen to us” I whispered as I tried hard to pull him.“Ah! What is wrong with you? This is your house. Why do we have to hide?” He said as pulled his hand towards himself with force, freeing it from my hold.He stood straight as he looked at me with disbelief and tilted his head. I stood there, soaking his words and nodded.“You are right. Let’s get him” I said as I turned towards the rooms. I was about to walk forward when Neil caught me with my arm. I pressed my lips as I turned back to him.“What now
Neil’s P.O.V.“How could she even think like that? Reckless behavior. She doesn’t belong here at all!” I was mumbling in aggressive tone after I closed the door behind me.I just walked and walked. I took the stairs instead this time because I wanted to clear my mind by doing something physical. I was almost on the ground floor when I mentally facepalmed myself and turned around.‘Now I can’t even leave her like that out of anger’ I thought as I walked towards the elevator, deciding to go to her again. I got in the empty elevator and pressed the sixth-floor button. I, in no time, reached there. But when I started walking towards her apartment, I saw the door was slightly opened and there was a lady at the door, half hide behind it.“Who is it?” I shouted while increasing my pace consequently.Eventually I was running and when I reached at the door step, there was nobody.‘Did she ju
Anjana’s P.O.VWhen I opened my eyes, a sharp pain shot in my whole body, especially my head. It took time for my eyes to adjust with the bright light of the room. When I noticed my surroundings, I noticed it was a hospital room. Little by little my brain responded and I remembered everything. Just when I was about to move my hands for support to get up, I noticed someone was holding my hand and a head beside my waist line on the bed. It was none other than Neil. I pouted a little, feeling guilty for being such a mess. I lightly took my hand out of his grip and patted his head.“Neil?” I tried to wake him up and shook him a little, just so he could sleep comfortably on the couch.He woke with a sudden reflex action and looked around furiously. I furrowed my eyebrows, confused by his actions. He then finally looked at me and his eyes widened. Without even a word, he just forwarded his hand to the side table beside the bed and pressed the button
