The Double-Edged Sword
Sizzling Dances and Intoxicating Drinks. This is what Khushi Gupta found when she looked around herself. She was here for her best friend Nand Kishore a.k.a NK's Birthday Party but it seemed much more than that for her.
NK couldn't be with her as he was busy with all his friends around him and loneliness took over her.
Only if he was here...
Khushi was lost in her own world when a similar gust of air hit her gently bringing her out of her trance. Khushi mentally jerked herself for thinking that HE was here.
But soon her so-called thoughts turned into stark reality as she saw NK approaching her along with him. Khushi was not prepared to meet him, at least not after what happened that night, which happened to be their last meet.
She turned around to leave when NK called her,
" Hey Khush! Stop!"
Khushi rooted herself to the ground and turned around as slowly as possible, while she kept her eyes lowered sensing his intense gaze on her.
" Khush, Meet Arnav Singh Raizada, my new client!" chirped NK excitedly.
Khushi forwarded her hand for formal hand shake and Arnav couldn't help but notice that her hands were shivering.
" Hi..Arnav," said Khushi meekly.
NK suddenly felt suspicious as he never saw Khushi getting nervous before anyone and she was literally shivering ?He could sense the air getting thick due to awkwardness between them but it was the first time they are meeting right?
Or Maybe they shared a past, which none could forget ; a past which had the potential to drastically affect their present and their future ; a past which had just pain in it.
Will the past fade and give rise to a new future or will it completely change their destiny?
