Akshay a college student of final year came up with an idea of moving out of house to find a proper job and make a living on his own.His father agreed to it.On one condition that he would cover his room rent until he finds a job.Only if akshay help’s his father with his work.His father is the of head of the library in their town and it is always filling up with people and books are piling up on the tables.So he needed few extra hands to get the job done.Then akshay started working,arranging the books everyday, it was kind of boring to him,yet he worked every single day because he was interested in a girl,who often come’s to the library.they didn’t talked to eachother until they bumped into one other.After seeing the books she has been reading,he recommened few books to her, they were quite interesting and then they started exchaning words.
Her name is Riya. His junior,studying second year in the same college.She is quite and shy.Most of the time she keep’s pretty much to herself.She wants to talk to people but couldn’t find the right topic to talk,it is how show she is.But she is doing her best for her debut book.She is on her way to become a full-fledged Author.They started to talk to each other more oftenly.She told him about the book she has been writing .It was complicated for her to write about love as she is still inexperienced in it.She doesn’t know how does it feel about been loved and being in love with someone.As six months passed,their words became late night calls.And as their friendship has bonded stronger,it has taken them a one step closer to the word they say “love.”Riya was spacing out in the library,she got stuck in writing her lines.She wasn’t able to express her thoughts Akshay noticed it and asked her.When he came to understand her problem he told her about the girl he once loved and how he ended up with an broken heart
Akshay: During my second year of college.I started dating her.At the end of the year she use to get way too many calls and messages.Once I checked her phone and I got shocked.she was a two-timer .she was dating a rich boy from another college.
Riya: she is a gold digger, a good for nothing,isn’t she?
Akshay: Yes, it was the case.I ended my relation with her and it was a bad memory .I don’t want to experience it anymore.From then I took my life more seriously and I worked hard on my studies and distanced myself from the word “LOVE”
Akshay: Why would I make such a commitment.But from that I came to know
“LOVE is only a word,but the real feeling should exist in one’s own heart
We should select our patner carefully rather than select we have to find….”
And later all they talked was mostly about books.On the way home in the bus she smiled and whispered
Riya: I will make sure that you will fall for me….Akshay
The next two days Akshay wasn’t able to come to work though they were regularly talking on phone.He was busy with his friends as their college days are coming to an end.The next day she was totally absorbed in writing her book and lost track of the time.It was dark outside.On her way to the bus stop she thought some one was following her.There was just a man behind her walking in the same direction. Riya was waiting for the bus at the bus stop.That man approached her and asked which college is she from and persuading Riya to give her phone number.
she got irritated by him and said “could you stop bothering me.”He got anger and thought of being a little rough with her.Instead he stopped because he heard a voice from behind it was Akshay
Akshay: Hey,didn’t I told you to wait for me at the library.
Riya took a minute to understand what Akshay was saying is an act .As the bus arrived the man took few step’s back.Then Riya and Akshay got on to the bus. Akshay made sure that she got home safely. Riya after reaching home took a bath as she sat on the bed and exhaled a deep breathe.she was squeezing the pillow beside her and saying his name loudly AKSHAY… There was a message on her phone it was him
Akshay: Are you okay?
Riya: yes, I am. “Thank you” for helping me out there.Let me treat you to something
Akshay: It is alright,you don’t have to.
Riya: Then how about a kiss on your cheek.
Akshay: Really will you?
Riya: of course not you idiot…
Akshay: What?…I was looking forward to it.
Riya: I am just a casual friend to you .How could I even kiss you?
Akshay: You are more than a friend to me.
Riya: Really in what way?
Akshay:I can’t say it,but you are special to me.
Both of them stopped texting to each other but barely slept as their minds are occupied with mutual feelings toward’s each other.It was hard for Akshay to talk with Riya by looking into her eyes.In his work Riya found Akshay chatting with a girl name sravani from his college he was busy with his friends as their college days were coming to an end. Akshay wasn’t able to pay much attention towards Riya
Riya started frustrating and she gave Akshay a coldback when he wanted to talk to her. Akshay was wondering what wrong he has done. Akshay college days were coming to an end and he is going to move out of his house. Riya might not get a chance to tell her feelings towards him so she thought of confessing her love the following day. Riya waited for Akshay in the library until he got off the work.she asked him to
Riya: come with me,till the bus stop…
Akshay: Why suddenly?
Riya hasn’t replied she was serious as they reached the bus stop.she was going to confess her love but it was interrupted by a phone call.It was sravani. Riya felt anger and sadness.she thought she was loosing him.As Akshay finished his call. Riya’s hands acted on their own. Akshay’s shirt collar was gripped by her hands and moved toward’s her face,something soft touched Akshay’s lips…
Riya: Don’t flirt with other girls when you have me,understood?
As she got on to the bus she started to freak out of what she has done.she only thought of confessing her feeling’s towards him but ended up kissing him.On the other hand,Akshay came to his senses and shocked in his own way. Riya made her resolve to meet him the following day and face him properly.But she got busy.As her book was going to publish .Akshay tried calling her but she hung up.The day when she kissed him he was happy and want to continue that feeling.All he needed was a chance to talk to her.As her debut book got published he got it from the market. Riya called him and asked Akshay to meet her at the bus stop. Riya arrived early to the bus stop.She called Akshay and
Riya: I am here….
Akshay: I will be there in 10 minutes.
There call was occupied by silence for a minute.
Riya: Remember,the day when a man was asking my phone number and other details and then you helped me out.
Akshay: yes,I do remember.
Riya: On that day,how did you ended up in the bus stop
Akshay:I was watching you…
Riya: You are?
Akshay: As you know my house is near.when I wasn’t able to come to work.I come to a spot across the bus stop watching you waiting for the bus
Riya: doesn’t it come under stalking?
Akshay: what seriously…are you going to complain about it?
Riya: of course I am,that my first love is stalking me.
Akshay: First love…ah?
Riya: I LOVE YOU Akshay.
Akshay: Third page from your book.
“LOVE is only a word the real feeling should exist in one’s own heart
We should select our patner carefully rather than select we have to find….”
Riya: well those words came right from your heart.
Akshay: Really….then my heart say’s that I am right behind my true love
Riya looked behind it was Akshay standing in dark.As Akshay approached her both of their heart’s were picking up the pace.
Aksahy: I found my love too.
Akshay kissed her gently.she was happy and hugged him tightly as her eye’s were filled with joyful tears.As he said the words.
I LOVE YOU
