Shaheen (Part 10)
So Shaheen started to live in her dream with Yash (Neither she has tell her feelings to Yash yet nor Yash has hinted anything like this to her). Her dreams cost her lot, her marks in midterm exam were very low. She didn’t tell this to her parents but she forgot that her sister was also in same school. His brother was ok he wouldn’t tell this to their parents as his marks were not too goo but her sister has decided to make her life hell. She told the result to their parents. Rahmaan was angry with Shaheen, it is the first time when he shouted on Shaheen. But it didn’t affect Shaheen much because she was in love, as per her view only. She was not smart enough in that age to know the difference between love and attraction. That’s why people says parents must be very careful in this age because teenage don’t understand but they believe that they know everything. Rahmaan was busy in his business which was falling down. Raima was weak and nobody was at home to help her. All children were their own. Samayra was not listening to anybody and Armaan was also happy with his friends.
14 February had come, the day for which every love bird waits Valentine day. Shaheen was hopeful that Yash will purpose her, else she will purpose him. But second option was impossible for her, a girl can’t purpose a boy. She was fully dressed up and looking stunning. From her street boys started to purpose her. Karim was standing outside his home and waiting for her. She knew his motives so she ignored his eyes gaze and start moving towards school. Karim came near and started to walk with her. It was normal two students were going school, he asked her whether she will be his valentine. She didn’t know what it’s mean but she didn’t want to be anything for Karim so she simply said no. Karim started to argue why not him? what is problem in him? Shaheen wanted to say that she loved someone else but he was neighbor and it will cause her a big trouble. So she simply said that she want to live alone. When Karim went a bike came near her, she knew that it was Ali and her guess was right. Ali held a single rose in his hand (this day rose becomes very expensive, prices goes high more than five times). He asked her to accept that but she ignored and told him to leave her alone. He asked can he drop her to school but she was not ready for that also. Ali keep his bike with her till she reached school. She saw some more street guys holding rose in their hands in the way. Actually this day has become the day when any guy can purpose any girl. Guys think that they can do anything on this day and it is allowed so sometime they crosses limits and it really put a girl in difficult situation. Some girls saw that Ali was with Shaheen, it was clear by the view that Shaheen was ignoring and Ali was just following her. But in teenage Shaheen was thinking that everybody will think that she is enjoying so she was worried. Her thoughts were troubled by the thought that what will happen if Yash will see this. Sweat came on forehead while reaching school she was searching for Yash. But thanks to Allah Yash was not there. She entered the school and Ali stayed behind.
Shaheen got a strange urge so she came back at the gate to look, Ali was purposing another girl with red rose. The girl was seemed uncomfortable, she was trying to go but Ali was on her way. At last school’s guard came in action and told Ali to go away. Shaheen said” Boys”
She came to class, two more student purpose her. She didn’t know them they were her seniors. Both came with rose and chocolate. Chocolate was Shaheen’s weakness she wanted to take the chocolate and throw the rose. But accepting chocolate was also bad as accepting rose from them. When she entered in class Rahul came and asked her to come in a corner because he wanted to talk to her. Tanya came near to her. Shaheen told Rahul to tell whatever he want to say in front of Tanya. Rahul was shy, with great difficulty he told” Shaheen, I always see you.”
“Ammmm…. Actually I was thinking.. means I want to ask….”
“I want to be….can we be friends.”
“We are in same class so we are already friends.” Shaheen was irritated because Yash was not in class and one more guy is trying to be smart with her.
“I mean not like simple friend… I mean”
“You want to be my boy friend?” Shaheen snapped.
“No no I mean …sorry, if you are hurt.” Rahul was puzzled. He was really bad with girls.
Shaheen and Tanya left him and went to their seat. Tanya was teasing her about Rahul. But Shaheen told her that Rahul is not her type. In the mean time she saw Yash was entering in the class with a rose in his hand. Shaheen’s heart skips one beat to see him.
Yash came to her bench and asked Tanya to move aside, Tanya was hurt but she left the seat. Yash set on her seat near Shaheen. He directly looked Shaheen in her eyes and said “Shaheen, I wanted to tell you from begning but was afraid that you will be angry. But now today my heart broke all the boundries and I want to be with you. Will you be my valentine for rest of my life?” Shaheen was on seventh sky, she couldn’t believe what is happening. His love himself came to purpose her. She said “YES”
“What?” Yash seemed confused.
“Yes” Shaheen said again.
“Hello, What Yes?” Yash’s voice changed into a girl voice.
The whole room was trembling like it was going to fall down. Shaheen opened her eyes and saw Tanya was shaking her. “What Yes? What are you talking about?”
She was day dreaming. Yash has come and set on his seat. A girl named Shikha was setting near him. She was also holding a red rose in her hand and they were talking happily. It seems one of them purposed and other accepted. Shaheen’s valentine day was over.
