Athira Patel

The tension between both of them is so clear that the air around us eased with the tension. I'm scared as to what will happen next but thanks to aunty that she handled the situation wisely.

"I think Athira needs rest. So will take her inside" she asked looking in between the both of us and eventually they nodded by averting their eyes from each other only to look at my direction.

I felt self-conscious and uncomfortable under their intense gaze so I pleaded aunty with my eyes to let them walk inside and stop this staring contest.

Nodding she pushed Dev aside and dragged Abhilash inside by catching his shoulder. After entering inside he put me on the couch and sat beside me scanning for any more damages when aunty sat in front of me by dragging the chair from the dining table. She looked closely on my knee injury when Dev went into the kitchen and bought water for me.

I took it gladly smiling at him with a grateful look on my face and completed the whole glass within three big gulps. Only then I got to know how thirsty I was.

"How did it happen Choti?" Dev asked taking a seat on the other side of me and inspecting my hand by taking it in his hand.

I hissed when he touched my injury and controlled myself from crying due to immense pain. Immediately Abhilash took hold of my hand by snatching it gently from Dev's hand and blew air on my palm making me feel relaxed.

"Sorry Athi, I didn't know…, " Dev said looking at me with an apologetic and concerned look on his face. When I controlled myself I shook my head saying it's fine.

"Its ok Dev. I'm fine. Don't worry" I said to him giving a small smile in assurance. But I know how much it's paining. Still, I just controlled my pain because I don't want them to worry because of me. I can see the worry and concern in their faces already and I don't want to add more to it. So in spite of feeling pain, I just acted normal as if there is no much pain.

I observed the silent glares between Dev and Abhilash whenever they think that I am not seeing one of them. Meanwhile, aunty just cleaned my knee injury once again and tied the cloth around it after applying the ointment.

"Did you eat anything beta?" asked aunty with a motherly voice looking at me with a kind smile which I came to like very much in these past few days.

I just shook my head in denial saying that I didn't eat when aunty suddenly got up leaving to the kitchen saying that she will prepare something for

't know what to do to make it easier for him.

I was crying like a baby by holding him tightly while he is trying to make me control by saying sweet nothing to me and assuring me that everything is going to be ok. After a few minutes, I stopped crying and we both stayed like that for a few more moments before he loosened his grip on mine and created some distance between us to look into my eyes searching if I am alright or not. Once he was sure that I am not going to cry anymore, he gently wiped the remaining tears from my face and kissed my forehead affectionately lingering his lips there for a while longer before looking into my eyes again by catching hold of my hand in his.

"Baby, I can understand if you don't love me back. There is no rule that if I love you then you should also love me back. And that won't make me turn away from you. Got it. You were always my Choti and will always be there. I will always be there for you whenever you want me. Now please stop crying" he said smiling at me with affection in his eyes which made me smile in return and nodded my head in acceptance.

"Good girl. I don't want to be the reason for your tears. Got it" he said placing his hand on my right cheek and rubbing it with his finger gently.

"Thank you Dev, " I said feeling grateful that he understands me very much and I am lucky to have him in my life. Even when I have hurt him with my words, still he is not ready to see me cry. I don't know what have I done to get a friend like him but I am glad for it and I will always treasure our friendship. I hugged him again feeling grateful and happy that everything is fine between us now.
