Thank you so much Everyone for all the love and support.

He grip my arm tightly  and began dragging me upstairs. On our way upstairs I didn't see the lock on old couple's  apartment which was here few moments ago.

I took a breath and let go.

Skipping the stairs , stumbling,  stepping on my own feet I reached my apartment door by bring dragged by him.  I didn't need to open the door because I never closed it when I went running downstairs.

He close the door and locked it  when I was finally inside.

His grip on my hand loosen and I felt blood flowing in my arms again.  His grip slides to my palm from my arm but he keep dragging me till we are in the middle of the room.

I didn't even realise by now that I am panting hard.  I am not sure if this is because of the running or the fear of what's gonna happen now.

"Sanyukta"

He whispered my name so quietly that I thought I was imagining it. But then he grip my shoulders from his big palms and shook lightly which make me look up at him.

He look like in pain.  Is he hurt?

"Talk to me" he breath out as his one hand now come to my jaw.

"I . Uh.."

I bite my lip trying not to cry

"I have. ."

Oh no .

"When. ."

Don't cry...

"Please " he mumbled softly as if  talking to a baby.

And that do the job. That's when I break down.

"Randhir " I sobbed out his name as I throw myself at him. His hands quickly came  around me pulling me in his comforting warmth while I sobbed and sobbed and sobbed.

His body so warm and comforting. I don't think i have felt this in last five years of my life. The calmness and comfort. My face pressed again his soft shirt or his shoulder while my palms clutched and crinkled his shirt. I felt small and covered in his engulf.  And protected. Shielded.

"Hey I got you. Shh.. it's alright.  You are okay. Everything's is okay.  I'm here. ..." he said many more comforting phrases in my ear while I drenched his shirt with my tears.

I felt a little pull and I found myself being lifted in his arms but I didn't detach my face from his neck. Then I felt him sitting down. Opening my eyes I saw him sitting down on the couch with me on his lap.

"Did I do something ?" He asked moving a hand up and down my waist.

I slowly nodded my head in a no.

"Did I said something hurtful? " he asked again.

I again nodded my head in no. Still hiding my face in his neck.

"Can you talk now?" He ran a hand in my hair maybe to pull my head back a little. But I quickly nodded my head in a no and wrapped my arms tighter around him and snuffles.

I don't know by how much time we sat there silently not talking about single word.  Only breathing.

"Where are ..."

"My driver dropped them to school" he answered my incomplete question.

Then I rest back again in his warmth. Moments stretched few minutes more before he said...

"I'm liking it very much but this time we really need to talk. "

He won't let I go, will he?

With that I remove my face from his neck and looked down wiping my face with my hands.

"Now tell me"

"Tell you what? "

"What happened down there?."

"..."

"What's going on sanyukta"?

He cupped my face in his palms and lift it up..

"I don't now where to begin"

"From the beginning I guess"

Please God.  No.

"It's a really long story. "

"You have my whole time"

Listening this I looked down at his ringing phone which suddenly made his presence felt.

He quickly swipe to end the call and switched it off.

He is not going to let it go.

"It started when. ..."

I took a pause.  The pause didn't end. Few minutes gone and I am still figuring out what to say and how to say.  Noticing this he tried to put words in my mouth so he can make me talk.

"One year ago? "

"No."

"Two.?"

"No."

"Three?"

"Its started from the day I  left you."
