Naya pyaar hai...
As Kia was flipping through TV channels this song made her halt. It was one of her favorites.
She switched off the TV and opened her mobile, she wanted to listen to the song from the beginning.
Though the song was one of her favorites, it also reminded her, of him.
Kia was not keeping well since a few days. So his school friend - Aman insisted that he drops her to office for the time being as he lived a few blocks from Kia's house.
Aman and Kia were not very close friends but they understood each other well. They had seen each other through ups and downs, being happy and sad. Theirs was a love-hate relationship. There were days they'll talk like inseparable people and days when will get angry over the other over trivial issues.
Kia found a comfort in Aman, one place she could be herself always. Despite the fights and arguments she could never hate him for long. What Aman thought of Kia was always a mystery to her.
She knew he liked her but he never said anything. He cared for her but he cared for everyone around as well. He flirted with her but same was his conduct with a few other friends.
At times she felt, he was just plain controlling himself from showing his true feelings. Aman's parents had got him engaged 2 years back. His fiancee's grandmother was not keeping well and hence they had postponed their wedding.
Aman and Kia never much spoke about his personal life. Kia used to feel distant whenever he spoke about it and hence she avoided such communication.
One day while Aman was dropping off Kia to office, they were in midst of one such conversation. Aman's fiancee was not well. Aman didn't go into details, probably he knew Kia's interests.
Kia just kept nodding as he spoke. Kia never wanted to appear rude to him. At times she could actually see him struggle through his life, fullfilling his family expectations and hence she never took an initiative. She didn't want to trouble him further.
At the same time the radio in the car played the same song - pehla Nasha and the first few lines were....
Chahe tum kuch na kaho
Maine sunn liya....
Ki saathi pyaar ka
Mujhe chunn liya....
Kia just heard those lines and stared out of the window. At times songs say what one can never say. She tried looking at Aman, he was too, looking out of the window on his side.
She was lost in her thoughts. The song was her feelings and as she looked at him, she wished those were his as well.
This song and the way they both were looking away from each other, she wanted to hold onto this moment forever. All through the song she kept looking out of the window.
Even today, she just wanted to listen to the first part of the song on and on and on, for two days later it is Aman's wedding with his fiance.
