A cute girl was watching the mesmerising world through her windows. "None thinks about how life goes through different twists and turns. Yesterday she was playing with a doll and today she is grown up in just a blink of an eye" She monologued herself. Her mother called her down "Shafaq, do come and have your lunch" "yes I am coming" replied Shafaq. Yes, the tiny girl who once played with the doll is Shafaq. She descended from the stairs and moved towards the dining table in the dining hall. "What were you watching out there?" Mother questioned. "Nothing," said Shafaq Upon a lot of insisting from her mother, Shafaq said "nothing but watching the beautiful birds singing melodiously". A man named Ahmed with long beard entered the dining hall. He is none but Shafaq's father. As usual, he was strict and dominant and hence people around were silent. "How are your studies going on Shafaq?" questioned Ahmed. "Yes, it's good and we do have a new tutor to teach psychology," replied Shafaq. "And baba the van driver was asking for the fee" continued Shafaq. "Yes, I've spoken and have given the rent. And I am going to change your college van," said Shafaq's father, Ahmed. Shafaq with a helpless tone said, "No baba! I don't want to change. It's good and all my friends are in it".
Heedless Ahmed carried on with his meals. "pass the pirki Fathima," said Ahmed to his wife. Just in a while, he shouted, "Where is the Korno bought by Shoaib?" Kono is nothing but Balochi bread made on stones and Shoaib was the servant. He went on shouting angrily. "Do I have to tell you everything? Don't you know how to serve meals for your husband?" And this was a never-ending situation.
Shafaq was a girl who was suffering from somnambulism. Every night she gets on her bed and in the dawn, she finds herself at the mountains at a distance from her house.
At that night, looking at her parent's fight; she became hopeless again and slept sobbing under her blanket. Her nightmares were even worst as she saw her father killing her mother and she is witnessing all these through a tiny hole in the door standing helpless. Though it was a dream, it stopped her breath away for a moment. While sleeping she stepped out from the bed and started walking then crossing of her room and descending from the stairs she entered into the street. slowly moving towards the end of the street suddenly she heard a sound from the bushes and she stopped.
I was alone in my room when Ovi walked in all happy and gay. Since she was out to see Arnab after the long winter's break, that was not very long though. Ovaisa is my best friend, we are together since our first day in university. And Arnab is the love of her life. It was the middle of january. The winter's break had just ended. And we all know how existed we become to meet our friends back again. So as soon as we reached back campus, Ovi went to meet Arnab leaving me to myself. And now after spending whole afternoon with him, she is back. "Hey sweetie!" she said, turning my attention towards her. " Hi !” I replied. " Ain't it a little early for you to come back? How did arnab let you go that easily?” I asked sarcastically with a smirk on my face. With an eye roll she said, "Cause I told him that my Anu baby is missing me badly”, saying so she grabbed me from behind into a tight hug. "I have got so much to tell you", she said, "come sit with me." Patting the space beside her on the bed, she made me sit with her. She narrated me the whole story what they did and talked about and there I was listening to her with kid gloves. Watching my expressions, she suddenly spoke up, "You really haven't ever been in love?" Amused by her question, "You know it, I haven't."I replied. "Ever?" She asked. "Ever!" I answered. And without putting a pause to her questionnaire, she came up with a long list of them. "You seriously haven't ever crushed on someone? Or liked anyone? You know someone secrectly that I don't know of? I shrugged a little while getting up from the bed with a smirk on my face, "Ofcourse I had a crush back at school." I chuckled. ”And?” She asked. "And nothing",I beamed. "Well then , tell me one thing? You like boys? Right?"She asked while winking. I gazed her narrowing my eyes "Ovii!! Shut Upppp!!" I was totally irritated. Why can't she just shut up. This was not the first time she's asking me such questions. She always got off about me and my boring life at anytime. "Okay then tell me one thing, do you kind of like anyone in campus?" She further questioned making me groan, "Errrrrr! Oviii, stop it." Before she could torture me further, her phone began ringing, "Raja Jii", she beamed with excitement and went out. 'Raja Ji' was Ovi's father. As soon as she left the room , I felt kind of relieved. I don't know what's with her, She always does this to me, bring out topics and argue with me over them that I'm completely not able to stand. Ugghhh! She wanted me to answer why haven't I ever been in love, but you know Na, It's not that easy to fall for anyone, at least not for me. You can't just feel love by just spelling L-O-V-E .But I know she won't get it. ..... She found Arnab in the very first year of our time here in campus and now it's been one and A half year of their togetherness. At the beginning, Ovi wasn't so into Arnab, you know it was just a tag for her to be his girlfriend and I remember, I once asked her if you don't feel the way he feels about you and if you aren't in love with him then why even are you with him? And she told me that when I saw that most of the girls wanted him and instead he wanted me so I thought to give him a chance. But, it was then and now things are completely different, Ovi is in deep love with arnab and I'm not saying this because she says so but because I can feel it. The way she talks about him, care for him, anyone can tell that she really loves him and I'm really happy for her. And now she is after me, she wanted me to feel the world's best feeling , that's love according To her, she often tries to indulge me in things, she even tries to set me up with Arnab's friends sometimes. And that's the reason I don't meet Arnab that often, once a week and sometimes after few weeks. She always tries these things with me and often bring miseries. I know she loves me that's why she does these things that are bizarre to me and fun things for her but she ain't getting my point that you can't feel love until you found someone worth loving. No?
"Why You Behaving This Way ?" He Asked. "You Really Wanna Know?" She Asked Back With Tears In Her Eyes. "Yes, Tell Me What Is It?" "Okay Then Listen, It Pains My Heart To See Someone Else Closer To You, To A Place Which I Called Mine. It Shatters Me To Bits When I See That Shine Which Someone Else Has Brought In Your Eyes, When Once Those Were The Eyes That Used To Stare Me Into My Soul And Shine Bright. It Tears My Soul Apart When Now I Have To Long For Everything, For You, For Your Time, For Your Presence, For What Is Mine. You Know How Difficult It Is For Me To Put A Smile When All I Wanna Do Is Cry Cause I Miss You But There Is This Thing That I Can't Let You See This Me And World Expects From Us To Put Up A Cheerful Smile No Matter How We Feel From Inside. You Know I Get Jealous When I See Other Human Have You And Why Shouldn't I Be, You Were Supposed To Be Mine For The Rest Of Our Lives. All I Wanted And Dreamt Is You To Look For Me In The Crowd And Help Me From Getting Lost, For You To Hold My Hand Tight And Secure Your Clasp And Take Me Out Of This Rambling Chaos. I Wanted You To Come And Find Me Before I Loose My Self Cause I Can See Myself Slowly Fading Away. This Is What Breaks My Heart," She Wanted To Say.But Instead, "Nothing You Need Not To Know," She Replied While Holding Back Those Tears.
