The breeze was cool mixed with a fragrance of the cherry blossoms. People had come to the breathtaking Forno Beach to relax with their friends and family. Some locals and many visitors were vacationing along with their families. The shades of tall pines surrounding the breathtaking Forno Beach were visible almost everywhere. Karan Khanna, son of the mighty, influential Saurabh Khanna strolled along the beach. Meanwhile his accomplices, cousins and friends were enjoying the beauty of the pleasant weather. Karan peeped into his phone as well as caught the sight of the beach.
In the midst of the people,
he noticed a playful beautiful girl dipping her hand in the sea water. Taking some water in the cavity of her palms, she looked at the glistening water in the sunlight, smiled and repeated the process. Apart from the crowd, lost in her own world, she was enjoying the moment in her own naive way. Karan realised he had been staring at her non stop. He looked away so as not to make her feel uncomfortable of being stalked. But soon his eyes made way towards her again, and again.
She was about to get up when she noticed Karan gazing at her. The honesty and purity in his eyes did not go unnoticed by her. She looked down and slowly again at him. He smiled at her. She was unsure to respond though.
A man calling her from distance distracted her and she looked for him.
“Samiksha, we are leaving in ten minutes. Shall we?”
“20 minutes? Please.”
The man answered, “Alright.”
Karan thought in mind, ‘So her name is Samiksha. But is she a local or some tourist? Who is she?’
“Hey Karan, lets leave.
Your dad needs you back at home.”
Sanjay, Karan’s cousin as well as his friend informed him.
Karan looked back if he can find the beauty on the beach again. But she was gone. He was surprised as she wished to stay for 20 minutes more. Anyways, he decided to leave.
As he arrived in his Lamborghini, the chauffer opened the door for him.
“I can do this. You people have spoilt my habits like anything.”
“But Sir, we get paid for the same, its our source of income. And we have to deliver our duties.”
“Agree.” Karan smiled and entered the huge mansion, his house.
“So you are back.”
“Yes dad. You cannot expect me to wait further on the beach when you passed on a message to get me back at earliest, right?”
“Sarcasm is in your blood son.”
“Its an inheritence. Willingly or not, but it runs through my blood, for sure.”
“You are my only son. So obviously I look up to you. After me, you have to continue this legacy and . . “
Karan’s laughter interrupted his words.
“What was funny?”
“Legacy. Really? Excuse me. I need to prepare for my music class.”
Without delay Karan left the room leaving his dad there.
“Every thing happens at the right time friend. You cannot rush things. You might feel money can buy anything. But certainly not anyone’s will. A person is a master of his own will, as you are of yours right?”
Jo Carter spoke as he walked towards Saurabh Khanna. The eyes and ears of Saurabh and care taker of his several businesses, Jo was family to him.
“I am 62 now. How much more do I have to wait?”
“Till the right time comes. Come on, lets have a drink. Relax. Let Karan enjoy what he loves. Music. Its okay. He is barely 26. Let him feel alive Saurabh. Come on.”
He pulled his friend and led him towards the drinks corner.
Karan was playing guitar
in his music class. It was one thing he craved for. He found solace while playing with the strings. It made him forget whatever he wanted to. Needless to say, some familiar face made an entry and exit in his mind bringing a faint smile on his lips. Back at her Hotel, Samiksha started packing her bags as it was time to leave. She had come with her family and a friend on a small vacation to Italy. Residing in Austria, she belonged to an elite class family. A smiling face flashed her mind and she stopped for a second. Nodding her head, she continued her packing.
At Airport, she informed her family about a last minute shopping and stepped inside an accessories shop. While observing the ornaments, her eyes fell on a beautiful necklace with a pendant carved with letter ‘S’. She took the ornament in her hand and tried it on. While looking into the mirror, she noticed a familiar face. Turning around, Samiksha realised he was the same person gazing at her on beach. As soon as he noticed her, he stopped staring at the shirt in his hand.
Walking towards her, he moved hand through his hair. She kept the necklace down and looked into his glowing eyes.
“I am Karan.”
Samiksha was at loss of words at his quick initiative.
“Sorry but I overheard when someone called your name at the beach today.”
She gave a faint smile
and spoke, “Actually I was leaving . .”, her voice was interrupted by the ring of her phone.
He could not believe his eyes as he had not expected to meet her again. She answered the call and started to leave.
“Sorry I have to leave. Nice meeting you. You are very . . kind and . .”
“Good.” She giggled and started to walk.
Turning around she looked at him with intense eyes.
“May I get your phone number?”
“Hmm. Lets do this. If I ever meet you again, you will have my phone number.”
Karan laughed out loud and said, “You see hell lot of movies don’t you?”
“I do and its fine to be um a little dramatic. Its exciting.”
“Why are you so doubtful about our next meet?”
“Hmm just like that. I am scared to lose what I . .”
She waited for him to continue but her phone rang again.
“I have to leave now. Bye. See you again.”
“Why did you call me kind?”
“Its seen in your eyes and reflected from your heart. Don’t change.
Till we meet again. Bye.”
Karan went to the counter where she saw the ornament. He bought it at once.
‘I will adorn you with this beauty myself, one day.’
