Chapter Five: Love At First Sight
“I fell in love with you the second I laid my eyes on you”, Kabir continued to tell his feelings towards me. I couldn’t believe what he just said. Was I in a dream? As I was about to say something to him, we were interrupted by our friends. We were so lost within ourselves that we forgot we had a party to attend.
All of the people who came started mocking us because as soon as we came out of the room we both were blushing. They knew that something had happened between us. We just kept denying the fact that something occurred.
The party continued and I couldn’t stop thinking about the fact that, the most popular guy in the college liked me. Ahem! Let me correct myself there. Not only liked me but kissed me as well. I wanted to know about his feelings so badly. I just wanted everyone around us to vanish so that we could spend some time together.
The party was finally over. I thought that Kabir would come by and tell me goodbye but he didn’t do so. He just left the party. I don’t know what was the reason behind it. I was feeling so sad. I was wondering if whatever he did and said was true or no. Was I just an option for him? I didn’t know what to do.
Ishita asked me what we did inside, but I honestly didn’t wanted to tell her. Don’t get me twisted, I will surely tell her but only after I know what’s going on. Saying so even I left her house. That moment, I felt strange. I kissed a boy who even expressed his feelings towards me but not fully and left the party without seeing me. I didn’t know what to do.
I decided to not text him at all. Although, my heart wanted me to do it. Whenever my phone buzzed, I would see if his name popped up on my screen, but it didn’t. I was clueless.
The next morning, I decided to stay in my house. I was thinking about how the other people would see me after the party. Kabir talked to me once and there was this huge rumor about us. Just imagine what would others make up now.
People say that it’s a mystery to understand girls. I would say that it’s a much bigger mystery to understand boys. We girls don’t know what they want. Or what they want us to do. They over complicate things. And when we try to simplify it they think we are complaining. It’s pathetic.
Meanwhile I even was waiting for Kabir to text me which he did of course. He just sent me, “HEY, HOW ARE YOU! LAST NIGHT WAS FUN.” Who sends that? And what did he mean by fun? It’s so confusing.
I just wanted to ignore him but deep in my heart I was even thinking about the few seconds we spent together. About that kiss. About those words which he said to me. It was all so beautiful and it meant so much to me.
Love is a rather confusing feeling. One second you are ready to sacrifice everything for your partner and the next second they don’t mean anything to you. I was trapped in between these two feelings as well. I didn’t knew if Kabir really felt what he said. I was in a state of confusion.
Will Adhira find out what Kabir’s actual feelings are towards her? Tune in for the next chapter to find out.
