"Noah? What are you doing here?" I asked him, surprised and he looked ghosted when he saw me at the doorstep.
"Ar-Arianna? What a surprise?" he spoke with a smile.
A forced one? I shrugged the thoughts briskly.
"The feeling is mutual, Noah. The purpose of my visit was to check on Anna. Is Anna here?" I replied calmly, and entered through the main door as he gave room for me to walk in.
"Anna? Right, Anna. She didn't know that you would come, isn't it?" He chuntered with a nervous smile painting his face.
"Where is she ---- my words were cut off when I heard Anna screech," Ari! Y-you h-here?"
She walked out of the room that was in the corner to my left. Closing the door towards me she took hesitant steps.
I walked towards her and gave
" He is our senior and you do know him. But do me a favour, don't ask me who he is right now. Will let you know when I ball up and confess it to him. For now it isn't serious," she ranted." Why were you acting up in the past week ?""He is my brother's best friend. So I'm kinda worried how it would end,"she confessed with her lowered eyes."Hold on! Kindly tell me who are his friends? I have no clue about them," I queried, perplexed." I- yo--- her sentence was hanging in the air because Levi banged her door with his obnoxious yell," We don't have all day, Anna. It's not your date night with your college sweetheart. Get out soon.""I'll be back!" she exclaimed before she ran inside the washroom. I sighed, and reclined back onto the chair. Something had been messing with Anna lately and that seems clear as day.
NarrationWhat can go wrong after I avoid her like plaque? Or in other words, after punishing myself for ever thinking of her? These thoughts were running like a marathon inside his head. He focussed on music to relieve his stress but in heavens, he couldn't get it out with her. She was deeply anchored in the depth sea of his dreams. Dreams of the night when he held her in his arms for the first time. The pull he felt with her was arduous and fervent that he woke in the middle of the night craving for her scent to surround him. Just to hug her to sleep. She was the odds that ever existed in his life. Choices that would be left hanging if he were to choose. The wildest phantom of his mind was Arianna. Reaching her shade was a path that was never existing in the first place. She was the sky and he was one among the dreamers yearning to see the deep secrets of the dark, mysterious, dangerous, and vastness of the sky that was withheld.The girl made him lose his head in a labyrinth of emo
Narration"Cheers Anna!" they all replied in chorus. Waving her hands to the boys she walked back to her seat. Arianna was engrossed in her phone. Sensing the seat that was occupied next to her, Arianna looked up at her and smiled."You should do all your business at home Anna. You are not a kid anymore. Wandering for toilets when we go out. I was about murder the girls for being too loud" Arianna grunted to Anna."I missed you too!" Anna bluffed, side-hugging her best friend. Anna gave her a cheesy snake in return making Arianna shake her head."When will the boys start?!" Arianna queried looking at the now-empty stage. Many techies were roaming. The stage had 4 mics and many cameras rolling. The girls were chatting about the boy's name. It was never-ending.
Damon KingI was pacing backstage with my pounding heart. Why the fyxk are you excited, sick fella?! Why are you excited about the arrogant toddler's visit? Calm down you idiot," I yelled at my heart. He was the inconsiderate badass who never paid heed to my words when Ria passed his sight. He has the slightest respect for my playboy fame. Always warmed and a pussy for Ria's eyes. Fuxking hell! Why am I talking like she is my special girl?Okay, she is a sort of way. But not in a special way, I convinced myself...Did she enjoy my concert? Was it good? Oh my! Was sweating all day? Did I mess up my look? I questioned myself. Walking to the mirror I took a quick look at myself. Sure, not a special girl indeed. I heard Noah mock me. My eyes widened when I witnessed his frame leaning onto the threshold looking at one with his infamous coy smirk. I mentally thrashed my stupid self for talking out loud. Now that he heard all my craziness he won't stop it till I bury him 6 feet. "Why are y
Noah's words were running in a loop. The entire stadium was in a frenzy and here I am fussing over her disappearance. Does this girl care about us?Shut the fuxk up Damon. You pushed her away, my heart barked.Searching for her in the parking space I found her car. Even in my sleep, I can tell her car number. It was her favourite black Porsche. Well, my troublemaker was missing. Releasing a harsh breath I walked into the arena again. The abrupt wind gushing at me made me stop. It was from the woods at the backside of the parking space. It reminded me of meeting her in the garden that night. She loves calm and breezy places. I ran towards the woods praying for her safety.I saw her sitting on a log with her gaze serious on the soil. Her hands mas
Arianna Reynolds"What do you think I am?" I asked him looking into his eyes where there was havoc of emotions. They were disturbed into something deep and questioning from their usual cold integrity."Trying to charm the player himself?" Damon asked me coyly with his wolfish grin. My eyes hurtle his facial features and expression at my random words. The arrogant guy who has never dared to break eye contact had his eyes shivering to look at me at a close distance. His drumming heart was conveying the effect of my looming closeness."Why will I when the player has already fallen for my charms?" I smirked back looking straight into his eyes. I saw him visibly suck in a breath and look at me as if I was a ghost. His steely, thunderous grey orbs were etching my features un
Time skipNext day at college"Ari, to add upon these assignments and case sheets we have another misery waiting in the queue. The fairy godmother has taken her vacation before us. And the curse of Voldemort has already been summoned." Anna exaggerated."Stop frying my nerves and tell me what it is ?" I groaned at Anna."We have to do a project in the upcoming month with our seniors. They are the perfect representative of bitches," Anna groaned with irritation while writing her medical pharmacology assignments."Like hell! We already did 2 this month, Anna. It's like two more days to go and another project? Prof. Darius said we'll have nothi
Damon King"Guys, the dates are fixed and the allotted topics. We have exactly a week from now. Levi will mail you the case studies, and the required related articles to our research. The thesis will be circulated now, so before you leave kindly make sure you all collect the copies." I raised my hand in the air with a bunch of papers clenched between my fingertips. "You can sort your queries with him." I pointed at Levi who directed his miffed gaze at me. Passing him a smirk, I concluded my speech. "Catch you all soon," I announced to my classmates and handed the papers to Theo to hand out. My fellow mates carried a forced expression of agreement. The seminars and hospital rounds have exhausted us for all it was. And a project for the next three months was a tiring ride. Looking at my obdurate expression they conceded. I grabbed the water bottle that lay on top of my bench to quench my thirst. I gave my phone a scroll. I spared my attention only to the important messages and disreg
