Proposal 8 (love apart)
Tringgg..Tring..tring... My phone rang
"Who's it? God not again! I'm talking to alarm" I looked at my phone it's 7:40 and I'm again disturbed by alarm 'Well I should get ready for college', I thought.
I took shower and turned my Internet on,
My whatsapp and FB was full of messages. Well, yes I'm loved by everyone because I've solution for their problem and I'm friendly.
I smiled and replied them all and left for college.
"Mumma, I'm going to college, see ya" I said to my mom.
" Hritik, you've an appointment today so please be on time!" She said a bit louder.
"Yes mumma! I know, bye! see ya." I replied as I crossed the threshold.
Yeah. You are getting it right. I'm not fine and I don't even know the reason but it's ok. All I know is I want to make people smile. Few moments later I was in the college campus and everyone was looking happy.
"Hey! Hritik, how are you?" my friends asked.
"Well. I'm happy and energetic as-s always!"
"Hehe! You're literally sweet."
We had some more talks and we were having our meal when I saw her, a sweet innocent looking girl with those beautiful eyes.
"Hey! Who is she" I whispered and asked Sneha.
"Oh! She.. New admission, her name is Tanya. Bu-t ... Why are you asking?" She asked suspiciously.
" Nothing I saw her first time that's why." I replied not making eye contact to her.
"Oh...ohk" she was satisfied.
Yeah. Those lustrous eyes were so pretty but she was looking sad or may be my thinking, I decided I'll talk to her today only. And as I was determined, I waited for her outside the college premises, I looked at my watch it showed 4:15 pm.
"Where is she?" I said to myself, curiously.
As I look behind, she was coming, my heartbeat start rising a bit as finally that moment was near.
" Hey excuse me" I said, stopping her from behind.
"Are you talking to me?" She asked puzzled and turning her face towards me.
"Yeah. What's your name?" I asked quite immediately.
"Why are you asking?" She replied a bit rudely.
" Wanna' kidnap you! Come on..." I laughed a bit.
After little hesitation she spoke
"Tanya" she answered. "...and what's yours?" She asked further.
" Oh! You're Hritik. I heard a lot about you." She said calmly.
"Well my pleasure, so if you don't mind can I join you?" I asked.
"Sure." she replied.
We both left and had a sweet and crazy talk, I asked her to join me for a coffee but she denied and said she have to leave as she have some work. After this our friendship started to grew and some feelings started developing inside me for her.
After few days we were sitting on terrace of my house and were talking about us.
"Oh, so this is one of your hidden talent, you write really well Hritik." tanya said
" Haha, no I just write what I feel, my feelings worth a lot for me." I laughed.
"Yes that's true Mr. Writer" and she smiled, instilling in me confidence.
God what a beautiful smile she has, this is what came to my mind, as I looked at her.
"So... what's your story that sometimes make you sad?" I asked and looked into her eyes, somehow may be, making her feel confident and trustable. She remained silent for few minutes. Then without making any eye contact she just spoke all at once,
"Ok! It started with him, he came to my life like an ordinary boy but made me feel so special that I can't even tell you but after few days he left me and said I'm not his type. Well this broke me but then you make me smile again. Thanks Hritik" she looked in my eyes and then hugged me tightly.
Next day I got my test results and my doctor said that I've only few days to live. I was shattered but I knew I've to keep everyone happy. That day only Tanya called me and asked me to join her as she has work to do.
It was evening and I was there, she was standing in front of me and was looking extremely beautiful.
" Wow you're looking gorgeous" I said.
" Hritik today I wanna say something to you" she said hesitating.
" Ok! Say" my heart beat skipped a beat.
" I know it might look weird but I've some cute feeling for you, just like a sun shines every day you're my shine, my heart beats become so fast whenever you come close to me. You make my words complete, you make my world even prettier, I wanna say you're not just my love you're my soul , and really whenever you come close to me, I feel something... something. Please be mine." She stopped a second.
"Hritik...A girl never confess her love till the time it's not true it's more than that. I promise to be with you every time when you'll be in any sort of problem but please at-least accept my lo-ove."
I was about to say that I love you too but I know I'm far from this world within few days. I didn't say anything and just left. I saw her once and she was crying and so was I. I made her cry! How could I be so stupid? Love of my life was crying in front of me and all I could do was "Nothing".
After few days I saw her in college. She saw me and left without saying a word. After that day I was with my mom and she too was crying.
"Mumma, You know what, I love Tanya a lot but I just can't tell her. She proposed me and I just left her without saying anything. Mumma promise me that you'll never cry and yes all my books I wrote please give them to Tanya after my death." I said all I had in my heart.
My mother embraced me and we both were in despondence. We both were sobering together. After few days I left college and told everyone that I'm ill.
The day I died everyone was crying. My last breath were like life to me because she came close to me and hugged me tight and I left this world with peace.
" Tanya, this is for you" Mumma said.
"What's this aunty?" She asked.
"Hritik always wanted me to give this to you, all write-ups he wrote till now please take them." She handed over that to her.
*Change of Voice*
I took them and left.
After few days I was sitting alone and thinking this is the reason Hritik didn't accept my proposal and I took those write-ups to read and a letter fell from them. I started reading that.
"So you finally got this letter means I'm no more in this world and you know, I knew about all your problems that's why I gave answers to all the problems without letting you know. Hey! I love you from the night you entered in my room when it was all dark and I was doing some work and electricity was cut. You came and lit a candle you not only lighten that room you enlightened my life. I hope I'll live in your memories for sometimes.. Love you forever..."
I was crying but his memories are now forever in my heart.
I closed my book and everyone clapped for me, I had tears in my eyes but a smile also that I made hritik alive in heart of everyone.
Just because of him I named my book
"He Died But Taught Me How To Live."
