Destiny Play Its Role

A girl entered into the college, it was her first day. Her hair was a little messy, no makeup, no dress-ups, nothing resembling a collegian girl, who is going for the first day of her college. She was an average looking girl looking around and she heard, “Ananya”? She looked back. An office boy was standing there, calling her. He handed over a chit to her, which was asking her to visit the Principal's office.

Ananya was sitting in front of the principal who was praising her skills and merits and was encouraging her to perform her best so she can represent her college on the District or state level. She has heard these often so it was not making any impact on her even if it was too much praise by the principal on the first day of the college. After a long discussion, she headed over to her new journey.
loneyWhen she was passing through the hallway, she was recalling her last few years, which made her feel that people are there just for a purpose and once the purpose is over, they will leave. Nobody will stay together forever. Even worst, the people you love the most would hurt you the most. After getting used so many times, after getting treated as a time pass, she has determined to be alone and strong this time. She has decided to focus on studies, stay busy and aloof, and don't allow anyone to enter into the life this time.

Almost 6 months have passed, being an emotional person, she failed often with her pledge of staying alone to protect herself from getting hurt. However, with each emotional wound, she started getting bitter. She started showing rudeness and bitterness to anyone who tries to get closer to her or be her friend as she had started feeling everyone can't be wrong. There must be something wrong with her. However, she doesn't want to hate herself with this thinking. Also, she doesn't want to get carried away again with the temporary companionship and then dealing with the feelings of left alone. She also doesn't want anyone to show sympathy to her so she wore a happiness mask. She laughs, she shows that she is enjoying. But, when someone shows emotional attachment, she gets scared and show him/her the worst side of her so the strong emotional connection can be avoided.

Almost 1.5 years passed and things seem to be under her complete control. Now, she sees herself as strong, independent person who is still emotional and empathetic inside, but can resist creating emotional attachments. Everything was great, but Destiny had to play its role. The time for inter-college competition came. Even if she refrain so much, her principal forced her to be part of it.

She was sitting in the corner, without any interest in this competition. But, to perform best and never give up is in her blood. So she was ready to give her best. Suddenly, the girls were started giving weird reactions. She didn't notice, but a few were too loud so it grabbed her attention. One of the girl whispered, “Oh, that's moon. He is also in our team. It's gonna be so much of fun”.

Moon? What kind of name is that?”, Ananya asked surprisingly.
Nobody knows his name. He is as charming as the moon and none can get him, same as we can't get the moon, that's why everyone calls him the moon”, replied one of the girls.
Oh! He is the moon charm of girls. Han!”, Ananya smirked.
Oh no! Just as everyone likes that moon, there up in the sky, everyone like this moon of our college. Girls, boys, teachers, peons, everyone. He is a nice friendly, loving, caring.. .
Then! Why I never hear anything about his charm for so long?”, Ananya interrupted and asked.
Well, 2 reasons: 1st because you used to be busy in your world and 2nd he is new here. Earlier, he was in some other college.”, replied one of the girls.

Girls again started chirping. Ananya looked at the moon, who was standing and laughing with other boys, tried to find something charming in him, failed badly and turned her head and attention away.

Time for action for the competition started. Everyone was working harder for the first stage of competition. Everyone frdsexcept Ananya was damn excited. She was there just to finish her role at her best. However, this was something related to art and she is good in logic and reasoning so she was sitting in a corner and letting her teammates give their best. Suddenly, a voice interrupted her lonely time. “Why aren't you joining us there?”
Ananya looked there, it was moon, asking her to join the art competition preparation.

She gave a lame excuse, but moon didn't accept it and asked her to join. When she didn't, after some chatter he went back and started having fun by cracking jokes, dancing and singing. Ananya watched it for a while, “stupid”, muttered and looked away.

The competition kept going, Ananya and Moon started interacting more, but not as much as Ananya never considers it as a friendship. However, Moon every time states,”Ananya is one of a very few friends he has in the college.” Each time she thinks, this must be the line he uses with everyone :) Days went and the competition was finished now. Everything was supposed to be normal now. But, destiny had to play its role.

Even after the competition, Moon kept touch with Ananya, which she never considered much important. In fact, Ananya always shown her bitterest and rudest side to Moon. Still, Moon was nicer and had always been there for her. Gradually, she also started considering him as her friend. She started doing many things for him, with/without his knowledge. Still, she always tried to be rude as she just doesn't want him to get closer to her as the emotional attachments had always hurt her in the past. Still, Moon used to tell her that she is the only friend he used to talk so much! She is a special friend! So on and so forth! She used to trust his words and his friendship, too. However, she always resisted to show her emotional side much to him even if she was considering him as her one and only friend. Even if she never wanted to, due to the strong urge of friendship, she got emotionally dependent on his friendship. In fact, got addicted of his presence.

Things were going well. But, the destiny had to play its role again. A fresher joined the college. She was damn gorgeous. Every boy of the college wanted to be her friend, or to talk with. She is Malissa...!!

To be continued...!!!
