“I asked you a question.”
“And that is?” Samiksha questioned him back.
“I think you are hell bent on irritating me.”
“And why would you think this way?”
Karan sensed a mystery in her tone. Wiping sweat with towel, he eyed her curiously.
“Only I am allowed to roam like this freely here or everyone?”
“You think this is a hotel where abducted people are kept in separate rooms or what?”
Samiksha shrugged. “How will I know that?”
“Go back to your room, now.”
Samiksha continued looking at him.
“Nothing. Bye. Good night.”
Waving hand she left from there glancing at the bushes and trees sideways.
“What happened?” Sandra questioned an agitated Karan next morning.
“Did you tell anything to her?”
“I did not get you.”
“She was behaving strange just now.”
“She came to see you? Now?”
“What did she say?”
“That a music lover cannot hurt anyone.
Some statement of this sort.”
“Ohh. We were talking casually.”
“And what all did you say to her?”
A phone call saved Sandra from his fury. Immediately she left the room as soon as he started talking on his phone.
She decided to approach Samiksha and ask her what happened exactly.
“Karan was upset this morning. What did you say to him Samiksha? And when did you meet him?”
“Um, last night. When he was imposing his frustration on the poor boxing bag.”
Sandra continued staring at Samiksha.
“Samiksha, I don’t understand one thing. Till yesterday you hated him so much. And its obvious why. Then what happened all of a sudden? You went to meet him, and even had a conversation. Isn’t it strange?”
Samiksha thought for a while before speaking.
She knew very well Karan’s mother will get upset if she knows her identity. She was unsure how Sandra will react by the revelation of the truth. That it was Samiksha who had left Karan amused and alone, two years ago.
“I went to him because his frustration level reached me right till here. Just out of humanity, I went to talk to him.”
“But you spoke about his love for music then. Why?”
“I thought he might remember his real passion and . .”
“And? You thought he would transform overnight. Samiksha, his past haunts him. First of all that girl just walked out of his life, without a proper good bye. She did not even bother to give him her phone number. He had fallen in love with her Samiksha.”
The last sentence of their conversation surprised Samiksha. Though she did have an intuition of the same. Sandra left the room, with an upset mind. As Samiksha pondered what to do, she thought of meeting him again. Without a thought she came out of her room. She started walking towards the same room where she met him first after she was brought there.
While walking along the corridors, she overheard Karan’s conversation on the phone.
“So we settle for half of her property? Alright then. I will call her parents today itself and ask for the money.”
After a while he continued, “As soon as they transfer money, I shall release her.” He disconnected the phone and turned back. Samiksha looked at him with the same anger she felt when was brought there.
“Great Mr. Karan.
How easily you decide the abduction money and put the family of abducted ones into a trauma. I am glad I did not give my number to you. Associating with you would never have given me happiness. You should learn something from people like Roshan. Right now, he is my parents’ only support. He might have been so upset when I went missing and . .”
Karan broke into a laughter. Annoying Samiksha to highest limits, he sat on a huge blue velvet lounge chair.
“I have never seen a person like you. So rude and heartless. Money is all that matters for you, and nothing else. Good that you don’t have any siblings.”
“Quiet.” Karan at once stood up, pointing his index finger towards her. He pinned her on the wall, grabbing her arms with his strong masculine fingers.
“What do you think of yourself? A smart, intelligent girl who knows everything about this world? Wake up. People are not what they seem. Everyone wears a mask.”
“I don’t need life lessons from you Karan. Soon I am going to get married to my fiance who loves me so much.”
“He can give up his life for me.”
“Then why are you still here? I mean he did not make any attempts to search you? Hasn’t he filed a police complaint yet?”
“He has done all of it Karan. My heart knows that.”
“Alright then. Talk to him right now. Ask him.”
Karan opened a locker and removed Samiksha’s phone. He dialled Roshan’s number and handed over it to her.
Samiksha was not sure why he did all this but considering it as a golden chance she waited for Roshan to pick the phone.
“Hello. Samiksha, is it you?” Roshan asked her curiously.
“Roshan. Its me. How are mom and dad?”
“Where are you?”
Before she could answer Karan gestured her to ask the necessary questions.
“Roshan, you have informed Police that I am missing right?”
“No baby. How can I? It can put your life in danger.”
“What? But its been 5 days today. “
“I know dear. Tell me, are they demanding money? Just don’t panic ok. We will hand over the money and bring you back.”
Samiksha was at loss of words. Karan snatched the phone and disconnected it.
“Now what? Your caring fiance hasn’t even bothered to lodge a complaint till now.” As she tried to walk away from there, he grabbed her arm again and made her sit in the chair.
“We have abducted you on the instructions of someone you know, closely.”
Highly strung, Samiksha started fidgeting with her fingers. She avoided thinking, as everyone close to her flashed in front of her eyes. Giving up too soon with weary eyes, she questioned him.
“Firstly, I am not interested in playing games, as you did two years ago. I am an abductor who draws money, thats it.”
“Who?” Samiksha knew deep inside, he won’t lie.
“Your fiance, Roshan.”
