Hey Guys! I’m Anshita back with the second episode of ME, YOU AMD PASSION. Honestly, I’m truly overwhelmed by your positive responses for the first episode. If at all at any point you feel that there is the slightest of scope for improvement, do let me know without any hesitation Let’s not waste much time now and start.
So here we go into the wondrous college world of the youngsters, especially Dev and Sonakshi…..
Recap of the previous episode: As the new academic year of the college year begins, two young sisters join in and spare in the same class as Dev Dixit. Amongst the two cousin sisters, Sonakshi Bose was the elder one. All the boys (including Dev) were awestruck by her beauty. Rahul Ahuja, another newbie takes Sonakshi and Elina for lunch with him. Dev gets envious seeing Sonakshi with Rahul.
Sonakshi quickly rushes towards the restroom and opens the tap and splashes a good lot quantity of water on her afraid, yet beautiful face.
Sonakshi to herself: Sona! Look what you’re doing! No, you can’t do this. Not at any cost unless you want to leave your dreams and maa-baba behind. You cannot get influenced by him or his talks or his looks or his behaviour or his smile or anything else! (she recalls the time when Dev passed on a sweet smile to her when she was returning to her place after her introduction and the recent eye lock the two shared a few moment back when she’d slipped and he came to her rescue. But why? Why did he run to Sonakshi’s rescue, thought Sonakshi.)
Just then Elina enters the restroom and finds Sonakshi crying out to herself. She runs to Sonakshi’s aid and tries her best to comfort her.
Elina: Sona, ki holo? Tu ro kyon rahi hai? Kahin uss Ahuja ne tujhse kuch kaha baad mein? Mein chodoongi nahin usse agar usne tujhse kuch bhi kaha hoga. Bataa na Sona kya hua? Tu lunch ke time bhi bohot uncomfortable lag rahi thi. Sab theek hai naa? Koi bhi problem ho to mujhe bataana zaroor. (Sona, what happened? Why are you crying? That Ahuja didn’t say anything to you later on right? I won’t spare him if he’s said something. Please tell me Sona what happens Sona. You seemed to look pretty uncomfortable during lunch as well. Do tell me if there’s any problem)
Sonakshi: (wiping off her tears) Kuch nahin Elina. Bas aankh mein kuch chala gaya tha aur actually lunch ke time achaanak se mera pet dard karne laga isiliye mein aa gayi aur fir mein paani pe fisli aur…..(Nothing happened Elina. It’s just that something entered my eyes and actually, during lunch, my stomach started paining. Thus, I left and came. While coming here, I slipped on water and…..)
Sonakshi: (trying to compose herself) Aur kya? Mein gir gayi isiliye chot lag gayi (saying this huge water droplets drop out if Sonakshi’s eyes). Chal class chalte hai warna late ho jayenge! (What and? I slipped and therefore got hurt. Let’s go to class or else we’ll end up getting late!)
Elina: Sona, are you sure? Trust me, you can share anything with me (passes a reassuring smile).
Sonakshi: (reciprocates to the smile) I’m damn sure Elina. And if at all anything big happens, I’ll let you know for sure!
And they both leave for their class. Elina somewhat felt unsure of Sonakshi’s reply. However, she thought that if Sonakshi says she’s fine, then she must be. On the other hand, Sonakshi kept on thinking about Dev and every time she’d do so, she’d pinch herself hard just to make her realise that what she was doing was very wrong.
It was chemistry period and all the students had already seated themselves in the chemistry lab except for Sonakshi and Elina. Dev, who’d been thinking about Sona ever since he’d held her in his arms, started getting worried and just wanted to check out if Sonakshi was fine. However, his just couldn’t do so as their chemistry teacher had a strict regard for only focusing on chemistry the moment they’d step into the lab.
Suddenly, Dev spots Sonakshi and Elina entering the room and his expression becomes much more calmer. He was happy with the fact that Sonakshi was back safe but it seemed like their teacher wasn’t very pleased by her delay after all.
Teacher: (looking towards Sonakshi and Elina) Where had you two been all this while?
Sonakshi: (putting her head down in dismay) We’re really sorry ma’am. Actually….
Elina: (interrupts Sonakshi) Actually ma’am Sonakshi hurt herself on her elbow and we had to rush to the sick bay. Thankfully, it wasn’t any major accident and the nurse just applied a bit of ice on the area that was hurt. That all.
The moment Dev heard this, he was really very shocked. Probably more of concerned.
Dev’s POV: Why? Why did this have to happen with my Sona? Oh god, why? Wait. What did I just say now? My Sona!!! Oh god what’s happening to me? Why is it that I feel a strong connection with her ever since I’ve met her. She seems to be different, like out of the crowd. She doesn’t value pedicures and spas much either. She’s just like my dream girl! Wait a second. Sonakshi and that too my dream girl? Nah. Impossible! But what is impossible about it? What if it’s possible? Oh Dev! What have you gotten yourself into?
Meanwhile, Sonakshi and Elina were still busy providing their chemistry teacher with the reason due to which they were late.
Sonakshi: We’re really really very sorry ma’am. It’s all my fault and not Elina’s. If I had been a bit more careful while walking, I wouldn’t have hurt myself and we wouldn’t have been late for class. Elina just came to my aid. That’s it. If you wish to punish us, please punish me on Elina’s behalf as well since it wasn’t her fault at all. Besides, she just wanted to help…..
Teacher: Calm down Sonakshi, calm down! I’d just asked you the reasons why you were late. I wasn’t going to do any judgement between whom to punish and whom to forgive. Of course, I wasn’t going to punish you both; for it your first day and your reason is undeniable as well. Sonakshi dear, hope your hand is better now.
Sonakshi: Yes, ma’am. My hand is absolutely fine now. And kindly forgive me for misunderstanding you.
Teacher: No, no dead. There is no need to apologise. You weren’t at fault at anytime. However, since the class is nearly full now, it seems like you two sisters won’t be able to sit together for the class. Elina, you go and sit beside the girl in the corner of the third row while you, Sonakshi, can go and sit beside Dev or Rahul.
Both Dev and Rahul wanted Sonakshi to sit beside them. However, Sonakshi stood still and looked at the ground. She was unable to choose between the two. She felt she should sit with Dev as she always felt comfortable with him nearby and for that he was also way better than Rahul, who’d given an impression of himself to Sonakshi of being a big flirt. Yet, she couldn’t simply choose. Distancing herself from Dev would be good enough but choosing Rahul over him would definitely be regretted by her at the end. Thus, she quickly walked to Dev and grabbed the seat right beside him. Dev was overjoyed and felt wonderful while Rahul felt jealousy rising in him along with rage. How could Sonakshi choose Dev over him? Wasn’t he handsome as well? Or was it just because of what he’d said down in the canteen, thought Rahul.
The lecture soon began and both Dev and Sonakshi had been concentrating when suddenly Dev tapped Sonakshi on her shoulder, which gave her a majestic feeling.
Dev whispers to Sonakshi: Sona! Are you alright? Is your hand hurt? Tell na? And how did you get hurt? Is everything fine? Is there something you want to tell me? And….
Sonakshi whispers back: Dev!!! Tummi ki korcho? Agar jawaab itni behsabhari se chahiye to bolne ka mauka to do! (Dev!!! What are you doing? If you’re so desperate to hear my answer then atleast give me a chance to speak!)
Dev whispers back: Oops! Sorry! Actually main itna overexcited..
nahin…ummm…tension mein aa gaya tha ki kahin tumhe kahin kuch ho to nahin gaya. I mean tum nayi ho isilye…(Oops! Sorry! Actually I was very overexcited..no…ummm…I became quite tensed thinking that if you were safe and secure. I mean since you’re new…)
Sonakshi: (becomes happy from the inside knowing that Dev cares for her but again, tries to get rid of his thoughts) I understand Dev. It happens. Besides, I’m glad that you were concerned for me. You know, like, ummm..umm…since I’m new and don’t really know much of people, it feels great to know that there’s someone who cares about you. So thanks a lot for your care and concern. Besides, I’m doing great now (passes a sweet smile).
Dev: (smiles back) I’m happy that you’re absolutely fine varna…
Sonakshi: Varna kuch nahin, Dev. Jab tak there are people like you and Elina with me, I consider myself to be bilkul safe. (or else nothing Dev. As Long as there’re people like you and Elina with me, I consider myself to be completely safe)
Dev: Definitely! And don’t worry, I’ll always be there for you (smiles and holds her wrist while looking straight into her eyes).
The two were so engrossed in speaking to each other that they didn’t realise they had been missing out on their lecture at all until suddenly, their teacher interrupted their romance.
Teacher: Dev! Sonakshi beta he wasn’t disturbing you right?
The two of them quickly broke their eye lock and let of each other’s hand as stood on their places.
Sonakshi: (looks at Dev first and then faces the teacher) No ma’am, Dev wasn’t disturbing me at all. He was just checking if my hand was fine. Really.
Teacher: Oh! You two can sit down dear.
From then till the end of chemistry period, the two didn’t speak a word to each other. However, they held each other’s hand and didn’t realise what they were doing. When the period got over, Sonakshi waved bye to Dev and went towards Elina who’d been waiting for her.
Elina: So Sona, love is in the air, huh? (smirks)
Elina runs away giggling to herself leaving both Sonakshi and Dev looking into each other’s eyes lovingly.
It’s clear now that the two have fallen for each other. But, have they realised it yet? Doesn’t seem so. And will Sonakshi ever be able to admit the fact that she’s fallen for Dev? Will the two bodies be able to get close to help the two souls join together?We’ll only get to know as time passes.
So how was it??? I hope it’s up to the the mark and it bringsa bright smile on your faces
