Never thought this would happen to me #RomanticThriller




Hello, this April I am weaving a Romantic thriller where Aaradhya is waiting for her love Shamit, who has vanished seven years ago. The story is being narrated by their best friend Riya. In case you missed the earlier chapters of this timeless love saga, 'I Live To Love you', you can read them here, chapter1, Chapter2Chapter3Chapter4,  Chapter5, Chapter6Chapter7, Chapter8  Chapter9, Chapter10Chapter11Chapter12


Chapter14


Life was finally a bed of roses. Shamit was perfectly healthy and started going to the office too. He and Aaru were extremely happy and comfortable in their small beautiful world. 


I had always wished to be with them as I felt if there was one place I was meant to be it was with them. Their love for me had always been so special and they, you already know meant the world to me, though honestly, I have been very poor at expressing myself.


In fact, should I say I had so far never been able to take stock of my own feelings? I either was busy with my sports career or was thinking about these two. They were my heart and I knew no way to weave my life without them. My siblings were all married too by then.


Deep within, I wanted to settle down in my life and live peacefully and happily now, but with whom was the question. Should I ask the two loves of my life to allow me to live with them forever? We could have the childhood days once again. I had thought at that time and taken up a job from the sports quota in Pune. My parents were the happiest to finally have their daughter home after so many years and were keen on my tying a knot at the earliest. 


I felt to take my parents’ permission first if at all I had to ask Aaru and Shamit to accept me in their life permanently. But every time I thought of doing so I felt weak in my knees. The pressure of society and the burden to keep your parents’ respect above everything was the norm, particularly for girls. I am not sure if it has relaxed today.


For months I contemplated but honestly, if I could really imagine my life ahead it was with the two of them whom I met frequently now. They were all the same, with love for each other always oozing out of their eyes. Their love for each other felt like tight compartments almost impossible to be penetrated by anyone even if it was their very own Riyu.


I decided to first try it for a few days whether the notion in my head was actually possible or it was just a far-fetched impractical thought. Thus, I  started spending a lot more time at their place. Watching T.V. together, sipping coffee, talking non-stop, and having fun with them. They looked delighted to be reunited with their childhood buddy.


My dilemma got worse with every passing day. Some days I felt at ease with them and on others an uninvited guest always intruding on their privacy. I am not even sure if I was overthinking everything at that time. Also, I had a parallel line of thoughts shaping up in my heart.  Should I not marry someone like Shamit and lead my own happy life?


It was my life, I wanted to take charge. But had rather become a mixed bag of emotions. Not able to decide I planned to put across my thoughts to Aaru and Shamit.


It was monsoon, the most beautiful season of Pune when the world around us is painted lust green by God himself. I took the two of my besties for a long drive in Ghats. We had packed our food and umbrellas as it rarely stops drizzling in this weather. 


It was a wonderful picnic and all of us sat on the mat, enjoying our little family time. I thought it was time to pop up the important question.


So I asked for their attention. Shamit was lying in Aaru’s lap and they were whispering something in each other’s ears giggling. Soulful music played in the background on their walkman. It was sunny for a few moments. The sun rays reflected from the raindrops in the atmosphere and the view was mesmerizing.


The next moment I closed my eyes and asked them, 


“Aaru and Shamit, will you accept me as your third life partner?”
