    And So Love Happened!

    CHAPTER - 11

    Dhwani cried for countless nights losing the most favourite person of her. She never felt like doing anything. She was always tired and lethargic. She even stopped reading novels, which was her favourite thing to do. Her room was always a huge mess for a clean freak.

    It was devastating for her to go to college everyday and not finding Vansh there. She was finding it hard to focus on the studies. She wanted to go to Vansh's flat to meet him but Pulkit refused to take her every time she asked him.

    It was afternoon and all the classes were over. Pulkit was trying very hard to capture a perfect shot of a squirrel playing around on the Ashoka tree in the college central lawn. He was waiting for the perfect moment holding his phone still with stiff hands, but somebody tapped on his shoulder right before he was going to click and the image got blurred.

    "Oh, come on!" Pulkit shouted in annoyance turning around, but his tone changed as soon as he saw Dhwani standing behind him. "Oh, it's you," he said.

    "Hi," Dhwani greeted escaping the eye contact.

    "What's up?" Pulkit asked raising his eyebrows.

    "Exams are approaching. So... you know. What's up with you?"

    "Yeah, same." He took a pause. "Is everything okay?" He asked.

    "Umm, yes. How is your roommate?" She asked looking away.

    "I don't know. Doing okay, I guess." He said and waited a while for Dhwani to say something. "Would you mind if I asked you what exactly happened with you two?" He asked when she remained quiet.

    "You don't know?"

    Pulkit shook his head.

    "Uh... well... the same old story. He has feelings for me. I don't."

    "What? You don't?" Pulkit said surprisingly.

    Dhwani nodded.

    "Whatever you say!" Pulkit scoffed.

    "What do you mean?"

    Pulkit ignored her question and quickly took his phone out to capture the perfect shot of the squirrel, he was trying to get for a long time.

    "And that's how you do it," Pulkit said showing the picture to Dhwani.

    "It's really good," said Dhwani noticing the pride in his eyes.

    It was around 1 am. Vansh had put the iconic Star Wars saga to download as he wanted to rewatch the series. He decided to check his Facebook for once before going to sleep. He opened Dhwani's chat to re-read the old conversation. His heart skipped a beat when he saw Dhwani typing. His heart was racing fast while waiting for her message. He wanted to say something to her. He started typing but backspaced everything as he couldn't figure out what to say amongst that whirl of emotions.

    Dhwani was typing. Vansh was typing. They stopped. They typed again. She waited for his message. He waited for her message. They gave up after a while when none of them sent anything.

    CHAPTER - 10

    Dhwani couldn't believe what she'd just heard. She was reeling in shock from the unexpected confession. She wasn't sure if she'd heard him correctly. Her heart was beating very loudly, drowning out her voice of reason. After a few moments of silence, she finally uttered in shock, "You love me!"

    Vansh looked at her, still anxious. He nodded.

    Dhwani took a long breath to ease her palpitations. "I thought it's just a silly thing your friends tease you with," she said.

    "It's not," Vansh mumbled.

    "Why are you doing this to me?" losing her calm she said and hid her face in Vansh's chest.

    "I am sorry," Vansh said adjusting her hair to look at her face.

    "Why are you doing this to me, Vansh?" She said sobbing.

    "Doing what?" He pushed her gently to take a look at her face. She resisted and tightened her clasp over his shoulder to let her nails penetrate his skin.

    "Why are you ruining our friendship?" She coughed as all the sobbing made her throat chock. Vansh rubbed her back.

    "I see a friend in you, Vansh. I can't reciprocate your feelings." She whimpered.

    "I understand."

    "Why couldn't we just stay friends?"

    "We will," Vansh said trying to calm her down.

    "I know nothing will ever be the same between us. Everything has changed."

    "Nothing has changed, Dhwani. Don't be stupid."

    Dhwani wiped her tears, "Do you promise that you won't stop talking to me?" She asked getting off of his chest.

    Vansh looked into her eyes. He nodded.

    Although they didn't talk much that day, but they spent the whole day together. They ate in the canteen like they used to. They roamed around the college. Vansh went to drop Dhwani off the bus stand and when she was leaving, their hug was longer than usual.

    Vansh didn't go home that day. He went straight to Jahanpanah City Forest after Dhwani left. He kept sitting there alone on a bench, playing with the stray dogs. He didn't receive his phone when Pulkit was calling him continuously to know where he was. He was there until the forest guard asked him to leave when they were closing the gates.

    He reached home late in the night, drunk. He ran towards Pulkit as soon as he entered, to find solace in his embrace, but fell down stumbling when his foot caught in the rug. Pulkit helped to get him up and somehow managed to lay him on his bed. He fell asleep at once but kept mumbling in sleep the whole night.

    He was a changed man when he got up the next day. Loud and chirpy Vansh became extremely quiet. He was clever enough to dodge the question every time Pulkit tried asking him what happened. He spent all day on his laptop working on his project or watching movies. He wouldn't leave his room no matter how hard Pulkit tried. He stopped going to college after that day.

    CHAPTER - 09

    It's been days since Vansh and Dhwani talked to each other. They only used to stalk each other on Facebook, check their last seen on WhatsApp and stare each other in the college without letting the other person know.

    Pulkit had asked Vansh about why they were not talking but Vansh didn't tell anything to anybody. He got busy in making his project file. He was working in the lab most of the time and at home, he was always on his laptop digitizing the map of Haryana.

    Dhwani was sitting in her class going through her old chats with Vansh when Yashika poked her from behind. Dhwani quickly minimised the WhatsApp, but all in vain. Yashika was able to notice Vansh's name.

    "What are you doing?" She asked.

    "Uh, nothing," Dhwani said hiding her phone behind her back.

    "What's going on between you two?" Yashika frowned. "I haven't seen you two together lately."

    "Nothing. He is just busy with his project file."

    "Are you sure?"

    "Actually..."

    "What?"

    "Do you remember that day when his friends passed that sound wave comment?"

    "Yeah."

    "We kind of fought over it."

    "Oh God! What did you fight him for? It wasn't even his fault."

    "I know, smarty. I was angry... and I might have called his friends assholes and God knows what and he won't talk to me now."

    "Did you try?"

    Before Dhwani could say anything, Kaushik Sir entered the class and everyone stood up to greet him.

    The class was going on. Dhwani was staring into the nothingness thinking about Vansh. It took her a while before realizing that she wasn't paying attention to the class. She tried hard to concentrate but all she could think about was Vansh.

    "Where could he be right now? Probably in the lab." She thought.

    She was continuously looking at her watch to check how much time was left. The class seemed much longer than ever. She couldn't wait anymore to talk to Vansh. She was getting impatient.

    "I am leaving," She whispered in Yashika's ear and somehow managed to get out of the class when Sir wasn't noticing.

    She called Vansh as soon as she got out of the class. No one picked up. She called again.

    "Hello."

    "Hello? Who's this?" Dhwani asked hearing an unfamiliar voice.

    "Hi, Dhwani. Pulkit here."

    "Where is Vansh?"

    "He left his phone with me. He is busy with his file."

    "In the lab?"

    "No. Probably in the central lawn."

    "Okay. Thanks." She hung up the phone.

    Vansh was sitting in the sun near the fountain with his project file on his lap copying the dot map of Haryana from Pulkit's file. Dhwani walked up to him.

    "Why are you sitting here alone?" Dhwani said sitting beside him.

    "Making a project," he replied casually.

    "Did you eat yet?"

    "No. I have to finish it first."

    "Why aren't you talking to me?"

    "Who said? I am just busy, Dhwani. I don't wanna fail my internals." Vansh answered in the same dry tone.

    "Why are you talking to me like this?" She sniffles quietly, tears threatening to spill from her eyes.

    "Hey, hey!" Vansh put the file down. "What happened?" wrapping his arm around her shoulders, he asked.

    "Why are so rude all the time?" Dhwani said trying hard not to cry.

    "I am not. I am sorry." He carassed her shoulder gently.

    "No, you are not. Everything is fine with you. You don't care if we talk or not."

    Vansh unwrapped his arms from her shoulder. "What are you talking about?" He frowned. "I don't care?" He took a long breath. Dhwani was quiet.

    "You don't understand," he continued, "how much it hurts when I don't get up to your text in the morning or to not being able to meet you and sit with you or talk to you. You have no idea how it makes me feel when I have to eat without you or when I see you walk up to the bus stop without me. You say I don't care? You are always on my mind. Always! My eyes search for you when you are not around. My heart aches when I don't find you. Do you even realize what you mean to me? Do you have any idea how much I love you?"

    Vansh was breathing heavily when he finished talking. He looked at her wiping the tiny drops of sweat from his forehead. He clenched his fist to stop shivering. Everything went dark in front of his eyes for a split second. That little moment of silence felt like an eternity to him.

    CHAPTER - 08

    Vansh couldn't sleep last night and missed his first two lectures as he got up late that day. He went straight to the class. Hasija ma'am was giving lecture on Regional planning. He took a peek inside of the classroom to check if Pulkit was there. He called him to know his whereabouts when he couldn't find him in the class.

    "Come in the library and bring a map of Haryana," Pulkit whispered.

    Pulkit was sitting in a corner of the library with several A3 sheets scattered all over table, occupying at least four seats.

    "What the hell are you doing here?" Vansh asked taking the seat in front of Pulkit.

    "Making my project file as you can see."

    "But why? Last I checked the due date was next week."

    "Yeah... that's kinda the whole point here."

    "Forget about it. Why didn't you wake me up in the morning?"

    "Excuse me?" Pulkit squinted his eyes, "I did and almost missed the first lecture because of you. What were you on last night?"

    "I couldn't sleep last night."

    "Oh, c'mon man! Don't tell me you were stressing about Dhwani's reply."

    "I wasn't."

    "But your face is telling a different story. What happened with you two?"

    "I don't know, man!" Vansh said aloud without realizing they were in the library. The librarian shushed glaring at him.

    "Let's get out of here," Pulkit said collecting his sheets.

    "Where are we going?"

    "Let's find out in what medium sound waves are travelling today," said Pulkit pulling Vansh's hand as they walked down the stairs.

    "Shut up!" said Vansh smirking.

    They searched every corner of the college to find Dhwani and at last found her sitting under the Pipal tree near the canteen, at the same spot where Vansh and her used to eat everyday. She was sipping on a juice cane. Pulkit gestured Vansh to go and talk to her.

    "Eating alone, heh?" Vansh asked sitting down on a chair in front of her.

    "No, just having a juice," Dhwani clipped.

    "Are you okay?"

    Dhwani nodded taking a sip of her juice.

    "Are you mad at me?"

    "Do I have a reason to?" She asked in the same tone.

    "What happened? Would you tell me please?" Vansh snapped.

    "Why are you asking me? Ask your friends!" Dhwani raised her voice.

    "My friends?" Confused, he asked, "What did they do?"

    "You don't know? Yeah, why would you? You never seem to notice any of their mistakes."

    "Dhwani," subduing his voice, "I am sorry but tell me exactly what happened?" Vansh asked.

    "You don't remember? You don't remember the double meaning comments your friends passed at me yesterday?"

    "Which one...."

    "And it's not the first time they have said something like that. One of your asshole friend was calling me bhabhi the other day." Dhwani said cutting him in between.

    "Hey don't call my friend an asshole," said Vansh without realizing his finger pointing at her.

    "Asshole is not the point, Vansh. You never acknowledge your friends' mistakes and that's not cool."

    "I am sorry," said Vansh taking Dhwani's hand in his.

    "No, you are not sorry," she said jerking away his hand. "You don't understand, Vansh. I am not your girlfriend..."

    "I know."

    "... and I feel uncomfortable when your friends treat me like that. I am okay to take a little joke once in a while but this nonsense hooting and double meaning comments everytime we are together is simply not cool."

    "I am sorry, Dhwani. I had no idea how you felt. I'll talk to them."

    "And make me look like a bitch in front of them? No, thank you."

    "Don't be unreasonable, Dhwani. Give them a chance. They are not bad people. I am sure their intention was not to hurt you."

    "Always... always taking your friends side. Huh, Vansh?" she said hopelessly. Vansh was quiet. "I am getting late for the class now," she said and stormed off. Vansh couldn't even try to stop her. He just watched Dhwani go away freezing on his chair without blinking his eyes.

    CHAPTER - 07

    It had been a month since Vansh and Dhwani started talking and they were inseparable ever since. They were together all the time and when they were not, they were either on a call or texting each other. Vansh's friends had started teasing him with Dhwani's name and he was relishing all the attention.

    One afternoon, Vansh and the group decided to play dodgeball with a light plastic ball, they had found in the playground, in front of their class when they had a free period. The boys from one of the most prestigious educational institution of the country were showcasing their class by howling and horsing around in the corridor.

    Aditya threw the ball to hit Pulkit, but he ducked and the ball went bouncing towards Vansh. In an attempt of catching the ball, Vansh lost his balance and merely escaped falling over Dhwani and her friends, when they were getting out of their class. Everyone started hooting loudly when Dhwani swiftly grabbed Vansh by his shoulders with her lightening reflexes.

    "Thank you," Vansh said hiding his embarrassment.

    "Hey Pulkit, do you wanna hear a scientific fact?" Aditya said screaming from a corner.

    "Always up for it bro," Pulkit replied in the same tone.

    "Do you know 'sound waves' travel the fastest in a solid medium?"

    "Woah! And you know what's solid?"

    "Our brother Vansh!" Aditya said and everyone cracked up hard. The whole corridor erupted with the hoots of laughter and everyone scattered away at once when all the hullabaloo forced a teacher, teaching in a nearby class, come there to check what the matter was.

    In the evening that day, Pulkit came to Vansh's room. "What are you doing, man? It's your turn to cook." He said.

    Vansh stayed as he was, constantly staring at his phone, completely unbothered by Pulkit as if he wasn't there.

    "May I ask the reason of this sullen face?" Pulkit asked sitting beside Vansh on his 6×4 mattress.

    "Dhwani left college early today. She didn't even meet me before leaving. She never does that. I always walk her to the bus stop. She hasn't even seen my text yet." Vansh told him.

    "Something must have come up. Don't dig too much about it. C'mon! Let's order something and watch some good movie today. Okay?" Pulkit said cheering him up. Vansh nodded.

    The lights were off but empty pizza boxes could be seen in the light of laptop. There was a half drunk bottle of pepsi lying between Vansh and Pulkit and they chose to watch 'Lord of the Rings' that day. It was their favourite movie of all time and Pulkit thought watching the brilliant cinema would help Vansh lighten up his mood. Vansh, however, had no interest in watching and was continuously using his phone to check whether Dhwani had texted him or not.

    "You are a lost cause, brother," Pulkit said getting up.

    "What?" Asked Vansh looking up at him.

    "You are in love," he said gently patting on Vansh's head and went back to his room.

    Vansh closed the laptop lid without shutting it down and put it over the empty pizza boxes. He lied down covering his face with a sheet and tried to sleep taking no notice of the anxiety kicking in. Few minutes after lying down quietly, he checked his phone again when he couldn't sleep. He was disheartened to see his empty inbox even after there were blue ticks on his last text.

    "I am in love," he murmured and put the phone away slowly breathing out.

    CHAPTER - 06

    Dhwani and Vansh were having samosa sitting in a corner. The canteen was overcrowded that day and all the hubbub made it hard for them to have a conversation. It was hilarious when they had to scream hard to make the other person hear and the constant guffawing made their stomach ache.

    "It has stopped raining. I think I should leave now." Dhwani said controlling her laughter but burst out again when she saw Vansh trying hard not to laugh anymore.

    "Yeah," Vansh sighed, "we should move before it starts raining again."

    The streets of Delhi were inundated with the rainwater. There was hardly any place left to walk. The smell of petrichor was very enticing. Dhwani would have, if she could, bottled up the aroma of nature. Vansh, however, was more tempted by visual aesthetics of the surrounding. Without delaying, he captured a few quick shots with his brand new Moto G3 camera.

    "Hey, where do you live?" Vansh asked.

    "Mayur Vihar," Dhwani answered.

    "So... you'll catch a metro. Right?"

    "No, Mr. Richie pants. I'll take 534."

    "Oh, right." Vansh grinned. "Let me walk you to the bus stand," he asked gently.

    "Sure, if you don't like your clothes."

    Vansh chuckled and they walked carefully saving themselves from the filthy rainwater all around.

    "You were asking me something in the playground," Vansh said gently pitting his hand behind Dhwani's back when she was struggling to move.

    "In the ground? Oh, I was telling you that I liked your movie review?"

    "Which one?"

    "The Brooklyn one."

    "Really? Thank you. Have you watched the movie? You should really watch the movie."

    "I am planning to watch it soon. What's it about?"

    "Well, I don't like to give out spoilers but it's a beautiful journey of an Irish girl finding herself in the Brooklyn city trying hard to find a balance between love, family and her life in the new city. Saoirse Ronan, my favourite, is just phenomenal in her role. You should watch it for her." Vansh got carried away.

    "Actually... I have read the novel and.... Ahm! I have also read your review." Dhwani said patting Vansh's shoulder.

    They had reached the bus stand. Dhwani sat down finding herself a seat but Vansh was standing quietly staring at Dhwani as if asking her, why didn't she tell him before he was blabbering about the movie like an idiot.

    "Come on. Sit down." Dhwani said showing him the seat beside her.

    "Hey, can I ask you something if you don't mind?" Vansh asked sitting down.

    "Anything, except asking me out for a movie," she said in jest.

    "Well...," Vansh shrugged and looked the other way.

    "What?" Dhwani gasped covering her mouth with her palm. "You weren't asking me for a movie. Were you?"

    "I don't know. Kind of. Maybe." He replied awkwardly.

    After sitting quietly for a while, Dhwani asked, "When did we meet before?"

    "You don't remember?" Vansh asked surprisingly.

    "Uh huh!" She shook her head.

    "Are. You. Serious?"

    "Don't create anymore suspense. Tell me. The bus is here. Hurry up!" Dhwani babbled standing up from her seat in a hurry.

    "Go out for a movie with me first," Vansh said smiling looking at her.

    "Ha Ha," she laughed sarcastically, "very smart!" She said hopping into the bus.

    "Bye!" Vansh said waving at her. Dhwani waved back with a gleaming white smile as the door closed. Vansh watched the bus go standing at the bus stand for a while and found himself smiling like an idiot when the bus went out of his sight.

    CHAPTER - 05

    It was a grey afternoon with a dull sky threatening rain. The wind was chilly enough to get goose bumps and strong enough to let Dhwani's hair fall over Vansh's face. For some time, none of them spoke anything. They both were walking quietly looking at the grass beneath their feet.

    "So... how was your class?" Dhwani asked breaking the silence.

    "Uh, don't even ask me. It was horrible. I only survived it somehow." Vansh replied.

    Dhwani chuckled and again, there was a silence for a few moments.

    "So, what are you up to?" Vansh tried to carry the conversation forward.

    "Umm... I was just playing badminton and I don't have anymore lectures today so I'll head home before it starts pouring down."

    "You play badminton!" Vansh said surprisingly.

    "Yeah, it's my passion."

    "Really? I've never seen you play badminton here."

    "Well, it's a new passion and we were playing before you came," she took a pause and asked, "Do you like badminton?"

    "No, I am very bad at it. But... I can watch you play."

    "You can play with me too."

    "But I don't like losing," Vansh made a silly excuse.

    "C'mon. I'll let you win." Dhwani persuaded.

    Vansh smiled nervously and once again, there was complete silence between them for a short while. Vansh was feeling shy around her and was constantly trying to hide it behind his smile. He was gently kicking the grass while they were strolling around the playground and was completely invested in the movement of grass.

    Dhwani found it ironically attractive when she noticed Vansh trying hard to make eye contact with her and failing again and again. She was really amused by his ability to get lost in himself while having a conversation.

    "Hey," Dhwani muttered, "I liked your movie review."

    "Huh!" Vansh blurted out as if someone has woken him up from the sleep, which made Dhwani laughed aloud.

    "Where were you lost?" She asked giggling.

    Vansh hid the embarrassment behind his wide smile. "I was lost in your eyes," he covered up looking at her firmly.

    This made Dhwani a bit conscious and she slowly put the hair lying on her face behind her ear, getting her eyes off of him for a moment.

    "You weren't even looking at me," She said squinting her eyes.

    All of a sudden, the rain started smashing onto the heads of students there. Dhwani swiftly grabbed Vansh's hand and ran towards the Pipal tree near the Canteen to take shelter. Vansh gripped her hand in a stronger clasp when Dhwani got startled with the sudden thundering and they both burst into laughter.

    CHAPTER - 04

    The second lecture was going on. Mirana ma'am was teaching Remote Sensing. The class was unbearable as usual. To understand anything what she taught was an arduous task due to her strong Manipuri accent.

    "How much time is left?" Asked Pulkit.

    "Doesn't matter. Time stops when Miss Mirana teaches." Vansh answered yawning.

    "I'll go to the playground after the lecture," Pulkit said.

    "Since when do you play any sport," sarcastically Vansh said.

    "Well 'birdwatching' should be a sport too," Pulkit winked.

    While Vansh was getting bored to death, Dhwani's lecture was over and she, with her two friends, was going to the Canteen to grab a quick snack.

    "Hey look, she is the teacher I was telling you about the other day who always wears a skirt," Yashika told Dhwani pointing towards Mirana Ma'am.

    Pulkit noticed Dhwani while she was peeping through the door to check out Mirana ma'am's outfit. He signaled Vansh moving his eyes to look at her. They accidentally locked their eyes when Vansh looked at her. Dhwani instantly turned her face to look away and scuttled off abrubtly as if someone has caught her stealing.

    Vansh, Pulkit and the group headed towards the playground after the class was over. The sun was hiding behind the clouds. The weather was a bit cooler than the normal. Students were sitting in the shade of the trees. A few of them were practicing football, some were in the basketball court, students from the dancing society were practicing in the tennis court and Dhwani, with her friends, was leaving the ground after playing badminton.

    Dhwani waved at him when she saw Vansh entering the playground. Vansh returned the gesture by waving back with a smile. The two group of friends crossed each other near the entry gate of the ground while they both slowed down to meet in the middle. As soon as they were left alone, they grinned awkwardly and slowly started walking together.

    And So Love Happened!

    CHAPTER - 03

    It was late in the evening. Dhwani was sitting on her study table after completing a college assignment.

    "Argh! Where am I gonna sleep today!" She said to herself after quickly taking a glance of the mess she had made of her room while working on the assignment.

    Ignoring everything, she picked her phone up and started scrolling through memes on Facebook. While doing so, she came across a review of the movie "Brooklyn" by Vansh Chauhan. Co-incidently she was reading the same novel, at that time, the movie was based on. She wanted to watch the movie after finishing the novel, but after reading that review, it was difficult for her to wait anymore.

    Dhwani opened Vansh's profile. "I recommend movies when I am not watching them," said his bio. She scrolled further and stopped at their mutual friends.

    "136 mutuals! Is he from our college?" She thought and scrolled up to check where he studies. "Studying at University of Delhi. Dude! You have to mention the college too."

    "Okay, imma ask him," she thought and texted him – Hey.

    The conversation was going really well when her mother called her for the dinner. "In a minute mom," she said aloud while she saw Vansh typing.

    "Don't make everyone wait for you Dhwani," her mother called again.

    She quickly typed to tell Vansh that she is going to have dinner but backspaced it all and left the room hastily putting the phone aside when she saw her mom getting impatient.

    It was around midnight when Dhwani came back to her messy room. She was already very tired and didn't feel the energy to clean the room. She somehow managed to clear some space on the bed to lie down for the night. She fell asleep at once without checking her phone.

    CHAPTER- 02

    Vansh was sitting on a 6×4 mattress in his rented apartment. He had just finished his dinner and was ready to watch the movie "Masaan" which he left to download before leaving for college. He was very excited to watch this critically acclaimed film. He turned off all the lights of his room, put the headphones on and played the movie.

    After a few minutes in the movie, his phone buzzed. He was so engrossed in the movie that he didn't want to look at his phone, but the name Dhwani caught his attention. He paused the movie at once and unlocked his phone. It was a message from Dhwani. His heart started racing fast. He cautiously touched the chat head of Dhwani.

    "Hey," she had sent.

    Without wasting any time, "Hi," he replied with the lightening speed.

    "We are from the same college. Right?" Dhwani asked.

    "Yes, we are and I literally sit in the class next to yours and I don't know how many times we cross each other in a day," Vansh replied.

    "Oops! I am sorry. It was a silly question. I thought you didn't know me."

    "What? I sent you the friend request. Of course I know you. And, who doesn't know THE DHWANI SINGH?"

    "What do you mean by THE DHWANI SINGH?"

    "You know... you are the college crush. Everybody likes you."

    "Oh, please. It's the exact opposite. Nobody likes me."

    "Well, the guy you are talking to right now does," Vansh typed but quickly backspaced it.

    He kept sitting still for a moment thinking about an appropriate response. Dhwani was typing so he waited for her message, but the typing stopped and her status changed from online to 1m ago.

    "Don't you remember we have met before?" Vansh texted and slowly breathing out, he put the phone away.
