One fateful day, I left behind my loves #RomanticThriller #BlogchatterA2Z


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


Chapter15


The next moment I closed my eyes and asked them, 

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


When I opened my eyes, I saw the two of them had vanished from the mat. A million thoughts crossed my brain in a flash of a second. 


Did I annoy them to the extent that they left me here and abandoned the place? Have I offended them? This is highly impractical, how can I think of such a silly idea.


I lifted my eyes in fear and saw the two of them clicking their sun-kissed pictures at some distance. I guess they had left before I had popped the question because they looked unaffected.


Thank God! I thought to myself and didn’t bring the topic up the entire day, acting absolutely normal as if nothing had happened. Instead, I went home and told my parents what they had always wanted to hear. Yes, I was ready. They could start looking for a groom for me. 


I was scared my desires might deprive me of the friendship of the two people I love the most and the fear made me keep the idea to myself. Why can’t there be three life partners like there can be three business partners? Might be my heart’s yearning was absurd, I had thought and started meeting the prospective grooms.


Aradhya and Shamit were on cloud nine to hear the news that I was finally ready for matrimonial bliss.


I met Adarsh in the coming days and fell for him. We met through a common relative. He appeared to be a thorough gentleman through his mannerisms. A simple and humble guy. Our wedding was fixed for the twenty-fifth of the coming month and Aaru and Shamit were going crazy doing all the preparations.


Their consent was vital and also they wanted to be doubly sure my choice was right, so they had invited Adarsh for a double date to their place. 


“Hi Adarsh, it’s a pleasure to have you at our place!” 


Aradhya had welcomed him sweetly.


“Thank you for having me over. I have a feeling I am up for some kind of a test here.


Adarsh tried to lighten the mood to which everyone laughed out loud. 


We had dinner and ice cream together and though he rarely spoke, he was quite comfortable with everyone which really mattered to me.


I kept looking at Shamit and Aaru to get a hint on their final verdict but they didn’t spill the beans until late at night when Adarsh was gone. 


They found him trustworthy and our wedding was fixed for the next month because for me was only about them. My primary desire was to be with them for life, which I had then believed would never be fulfilled. This was the second-best option, I had decided to settle down for, hoping that all would be fine soon.


The wedding preparations kept us busy and one fateful day, I tied the knot with Adarsh and left behind both my loves.


TO BE CONTINUED....
