Karan stood there with a necklace in his hands, which looked familiar. He held it in front of her looking intensely into her beautiful eyes. She touched it softly with her fingers and instantly recollected its first sight. It was the same from the shop near Forno beach, where they both met last time.
“What should I say?” Emotions overflowed Samiksha as she spoke.
“Whatever you feel.”
“Why did I fail to see what you felt for me Karan?”
“This is destiny’s play. I want you to understand one thing Samiksha. Do not regret about what happened in the past. You know what I mean?”
“No. Because I have started feeling, I should have exchanged my number with you that night. We would have had a chance to know and understand each other. Maybe I would have left that Roshan and chosen you. Or even you would not have opted for this life then.”
“Relax Samiksha. First, never ever use ‘would have’. Okay. Because that moment has already passed. We act as per our destined fate. If everyone chose the right path by default, people will never know the importance of things as well as people in their lives. Second, look what is in front of you. Always.”
Samiksha uttered without a thought.
“I am seeing what is before me Karan.”
“Samiksha, you know what I do. My work I meant.”
“I did not get you.”
“I was an abductor.”
“What do you mean I was?”
“I have decided to surrender.”
Samiksha stared at him in anticipation.
“Already had a word with my men. I am going to do this at earliest.”
“May I know the reason for this?”
He traced a hair back from her forehead slowly.
“You.” She smiled at his answer.
“I need to keep myself safe, for you and for the sake of mom. Its not going to be an easy ride. Police will arrest me. But I have to undergo this as penance. So easily I found an excuse to abduct people. But resisting that urge to take revenge would have changed the course of my life. I chose an easier path. But now its time to choose the right one.”
Samiksha placed her hands on his, “I am with you.”
He enveloped her hands and assure her a beautiful future by his mere glance.
“But did all your members agree for this? Its not going to be easy for them too.”
“In that case, I am truly blessed. They agreed to support me and surrender.”
Saniksha swiped her hair at one side of her neck and turned back slowly. Karan smiled placed the necklace around her lovely neck. “I made a vow that day, I will put this necklace myself around your neck.” Saying this he made her face him.
Cupping her face in his hands,
he uttered the three magical words. “I love you Samiksha.”
She reciprocated by nodding and rested her head against his strong, protective chest.
“Samiksha, your parents will be worrying for you.”
“I know. But we need to show true face of Roshan to them.”
“Alright. I know what is to be done.” Karan left the room after kissing her forehead.
As Roshan paced in his room, he heard his phone ring.
“Who is this?”
“Tell me. What is the next move man?”
“Let us meet in the afternoon. Did you speak to her parents? Hope they agreed?”
“But of course. See you in the noon.”
