 MY FIRST LOVE IS MY LAST LOVE

                            CHAPTER-1


June 10th,2020. 

Munnar, Kerala.

The sky is very dark with huge thunders. It started raining heavily. Roads were filled up with small ponds. The rain drops are very large and heavy too. They are reaching the ground with a huge force. People are rushing for shelter. Few children were making paper boats and leaving in those ponds. Few were drinking hot tea and coffee at cafes. All are doing different things. But, each and everyone is attractive to a smell which coming from the mother earth. This smell distributes positiveness all over the world. It gives a good relief from any stress. And can remove the feeling of being sad.

In this situation the raindrop sound, vehicle sound, thunder sound etc. all those sounds were dominated by a sound. That's a sound of bells of an anklets (or) ankle chain of a girl walking on the road. She wore silver coloured high heel sandals. She dressed up with a white chudidar. It is just like an umbrella, She had a thin chain at her neck. It also silver coloured. It has a small locket in the shape of heart. Small letters of A and K were present in that locket. Her jumkas(a type of earrings) were silver too. She had a long loose hair which is up to her middle backbone. It is very thick black in colour and straight.

 When it comes to her face, it is covered by an umbrella of multi colours. Slowly she lifted up the umbrella. Those are her lips. They are in cherish red colour. They are very natural like the petals of a rose. Those lips got a complete feature of a rainbow in that rain i.e., her smile. After this, umbrella went up to her forehead. She had a small and cute nose which has a small curve at its end. Next,it is her eyes. They look like the doors of the heaven were opened. For every second her eye laps(eye lids) were flapping. For every single flap a man die for her beauty. Her eyebrows are like a half moon. She had complete officialness in her face. 

While she walking in streets, boys will flat by seeing her. When she is passing by the trees, those trees praises her by falling it's leafs on her as a reward for her beauty. The every rain drop falling on her, dies with happiness for the touch of her.


                          CHAPTER-2 

Exactly 5:30pm, Kerala.

That beautiful girl she passes through a tree with full of yellow flowers. Those flowers welcomes her with a great pleasure. She moves umbrella away from her head and rotates three to four times. Then a mirchi baji shop owner sees her(here mirchi baji is an Indian snack item prepared by using a green chilli and batter). She came to know that he is seeing her. So, she fastly walks away from that shop. But, she never return back to home. 

Her family members are worried about her. Her father asked every person and searched everywhere. But, he doesnt able to find his daughter. Her mother can't bare the situation that her daughter is missing. So, they approached police station for help. They gave complaint that her daughter is missing. Police officer filed FIR(First Information Report) as a missing case. Cops gave them confidence and send them.

After few minutes her father came again into the station. He is in anger. 

"sir! I am very confident about my daughter's kidnap. I know who kidnapped her". He shouted. 

"Who is that? How can you say that?And what is the relationship between them?" A police officer named Naveen Chandra asked. 

"Sir! His name is karthik. He lives alone with her mother at Kochi. He played many tricks and made my daughter Akrithi to fall in his love. I warned him many times. But, he doesn't changed his opinion on my daughter. So, now he kidnapped my daughter". He confidently said. 

"Did you saw him kidnapping you? Did you get any call from him?'Naveen Chandra shouted.

"No sir I didn't get any call from him" he replied.

"Then how can you say that he kidnapped your daughter? You gave complaint to us. Finding the thing is our duty. So, you can go now." Naveen Chandra said.

Her father left. Police officers started investigation. But, nothing they found. They asked that mirchi shop owner. He replied that I saw her here exactly at 5:55 pm. She danced here and left from the way which is opposite to me. That's what I have seen. Naveen Chandra walked in that road in search of evidence. He saw an anklet in the sand beside the road. He took that and placed it in a cover. He went back to station. 

"Constable! Alert all check posts the criminal should not cross the state border. Send Akrithi photo to every station. And I want her call records within five minutes. Make it fast'. Naveen shouted.

Call records came. It is clear that she have calls from same number and she called that number repeatedly. So, they are searching for the person who called her several times. 

What happened to her? Who is that person? Is her lover is the criminal? A single answer to all this questions is we should know about her love story.


                          CHAPTER-3

"Sir! We got the person who called Akrithi several times. Our constables went to bring him." said a head constable.

"Good! Is there any criminal record on him?"Questioned a sub inspector named Surya 

"No,Sir! He is the boyfriend of Akrithi. But, even they doesn't met for one time except calls" expressed head constable.

 "Alright! Let us talk with him". Surya replied. 

Constables brought him into the police station and locks him in the interrogation room. Surya enters that room. In that room a table and two chairs were present. Surya sits opposite to him. 

"Now, answer my questions straightly. What is your name? What us the relation between you and Akrithi? And where is Akrithi?" Surya questioned. 

"Akrithi? What happened to her?" He shouted. 

"She is kidnapped by you". Surya replied.

"No! No,Sir! I didnt kidnapped her. She is my life and everything. How can I kidnap her?" He cried. 

"Now, stop all this drama and just say answer to my questions." Surya shouted.

"Sir! My name is Karthik Sinha. Me and my mother lives in Kochi, Kerala. My father was an Army officer. He died during the war at the border, For every holidays me and friends plan for a holiday trip. So, this time we went to Munnar. Our first day plan is to enjoy in the Cloud Farming Camp. The day is very cloudy. We went to that place. At the time we enjoying the nature suddenly, a cloth diverted my mind. It's a black coloured saree. A cool breeze came by making the sound. When I am listening to that sound. Again, my ears are disturbed by a sound. It is the bells of her anklets. They are in silver colour. Her sandals are gold coloured and a high hill too. I saw her waist it was just awesome. I lost my control on my eyes. It is like a half moon covered by clouds. Slowly, my eyes cane to my control. Because she covered it by her saree. My eyes fell on her hands. She had a silver coloured bracelet with small bells. Her chin is exactly like a sweet made by milk. At that time a drop fell on her pink lips. I thought it is the praise given by the god of rain. Next, it is her nose. It is very small and cute too. It is her eyes. They are really amazing. This time my heart is hacked by her eyes. I can't describe her beauty. First women I loved is my mother and now the next is a she. I want to talk with her. I just took a step to reach her.


                          CHAPTER-4 

                 FEW MONTHS BACK

A familiar voice stopped me. That's Roy my friend. He helped me to recover soon from my father's death. 

"Hey! Karthik! what are you doing there?" He asked. 

"Nothing. Come on let's go." I replied. 

I looked back to find her but, she went. I saw the place she stood something is shining it is her chain. But, it is completely damaged. Then I realised that's the reason why I shouldn't found this chain to her neck. I kept that chain in my pocket. 

I didn't had a proper sleep that night. 

She disturbed me a lot. She came in a bridal getup. I was in bridegroom dress. We bath get married at a function hall. My mother blessed both of us. She hugged me. I was kissing her. suddenly, a voice came from front of me. It's again my friend Roy. 

"Hey! Hey Man get up! You waste fellow kissing me" He shouted.

I worked up and realised that it was a dream. I get ready myself to buy her a new chain and to present her as a gift. So, bought a chain with a love shaped locket. Inside that live shape there are to letters A and K. I showed it to Roy. 

What this letters mean?"questioned Roy.

"You silly fellow it is simple. A refers she and K refers to me Karthik" I replied. 

"How can you say her name starts with letter A' Roy asked.

"I don't want whatever her name is just she is angel. So, I selected letter A" I said.

I am very confident that she will again come to that place in search of this chain. So, it's a good chance for me to meet her. We both waited for few hours. But, she didn't came. We decided to go back. But, l saw her friend who came there yesterday.

"Excuse me! I saw you at cloud farming camp yesterday." I questioned her.

"So, you are following me? Sorry I am already have a boyfriend." She replied.

"Sorry! You misunderstood me. How can you think that I love a tumbler like you? I am loving your friend. Can you give me her number please!" I said.

"You idioti Am I looking like a tumbler?" She shouted. 

"Yes. Of course you are". I replied. 

"Whati I don't give her number to you. Get lost." She shouted. 

"Man! How disgusting! OK. I am really sorry. It's an emergency." I requested her. 

"OK done! I will give you her number take it."  She said. 

"Thank you so much. And 1 second a small gift". I gave it to her. 

"A gift to me Ohi Thank your". She wondered.

"Hello! Mam it is for her. Not, for you". I replied 

She left. We also went back to our room. Exactly 7:39 pm I called her. I thought she doesn't lift the call.

But, due to the God's grace she lifted the call. 

"Hello! I am karthik. Do you remember me?" I asked.

"Come down quickly. I want to talk with you alone." She said. 

I went out looking her. Complete road is empty. There is no one. 

After a while I saw a vehicle light coming towards me. I am confident that it is not her. But, my confidence is wrong. It is her. I shocked by seeing her. She wore a black blazer and black helmet too. She stopped the bike. It is Royal Enfield bike. She removed her helmet. She is completely opposite to my thoughts. Even though she looks gorgeous.

"Hello! Karthik right. Come on take this helmet." She said. 

I came out of my a shock. And sat back of her. 

"May I know what is your good name?". I requested. 

"Without knowing my name you loving me? How annoying is this?" She questioned.

"I think having a good heart is enough to love a person. So, i had it." I replied.

"Do you have a biscuit shop?" She questioned. 

"No. But, why?" I replied. 

"You are giving many biscuits to me. And my name is Akrithi." She giggled.

I thought my future wife is very naughty and humorous too. She stopped the bike at a place which is completely dark everywhere. It's a hill station Darjeeling. Suddenly, she closed my eyes and took me somewhere. She opened my eyes. There are some balloons coming up from down of the hill. Those balloons had few letters. I tried to read those letters. H,A,P,P,Y it is happy and B,I,R,T,H,DA,Y it is birthday. Happy birthday. Oh! Shit! It's my birthday today. Thank you so much. And she made me to cut the cake.

"How do you know today is my birthday?" I questioned her.

"I saw it in your facebook account." She replied.

 It is the start of our relationship even we didn't end it.
