“Why did you vanish those beautiful memories from my mind, Manik?” I asked him and he looked at me guiltily.
He clasped my face and answered, “I know I shouldn’t have done this and it was not easy for me, but I did this for you, Angel.” He is gazing at me fondly.
Three days passed in the blur with you. You were sleeping peacefully in the morning and I was gazing at you fondly, standing beside your bed. We weren’t sharing the same bed. I slept on the sofa. I can watch you sleeping for my whole life. It is blissful. You look like an Angel.
“Hello, Manik.” I froze as I heard Katrina’s voice. I instantly looked in the direction from where the voice came. She was standing on the window, smiling evilly. I knitted my brows and glared at her. My blood boiled up.
I swiftly reached to her and threw her out of the window because I didn’t want you to see her. Then I also jumped out of the window.
“What are you doing here, Katrina? What do you want?” I roared at her by grabbing her neck and pinned her against the nearby wall. I wish I could kill her.
“Who is that girl, Manik? Why you never look at me like you were looking at that girl? Am I not beautiful?” She asked after removing my hands from her neck.
“You’re a bitch, Katrina. You spoiled my life by turning me into Vampire and killing Inayat. Now you’re again here. Why fucking can’t you leave me?” I growled at her, clenching my fist.
I fell in love with Inayat when I was a normal human being, but Katrina killed her and turned me into a Vampire. Since that day, I’m trying to kill her, but she is stronger than me. After Inayat, I didn’t like any girl, but you attracted me, you made me feel alive. I was enjoying your company. I never thought that I would again like someone. I was getting happiness after such a long but she again came back to snatch it. I was extremely angry.
“Why can’t you see my love, Manik? I turned you into a Vampire because I want to spend the rest of my life with you till eternity,”
I shrieked, cutting her words. “You just love yourself, Katrina. You don’t love me, you’re obsessed with me. You killed my first love,” Now she cut my words.
“And now I came here to warn you, I’ll kill this girl also if she stays with you. If you can’t be mine, then you can’t be someone else.” She warned me sternly. I realised that I was doing wrong with you by putting your life at risk.
“Goodbye.” Katrina waved her hand, grinning devilishly and disappeared with the blink of my eyes before I could do something.
I decided to leave you because I didn’t want to lose you like I had lost Inayat.
I came back to see you for the last time. You were already awake.
“Good morning, Manik.” You wished me cheerfully, strolling towards me. I was just staring at you unblinkingly with sorrowful eyes. I didn’t want to go away from you. My heart was aching.
“Is everything alright? You’re looking upset.” You asked concernedly by placing your hand on my bicep.
I plastered a smile on my face. “I’m fine. It just that I’m going back home.” As I uttered, your lips drew down in sadness.
“Oh.” You said in low voice. “Couldn’t you stay here for few more days?” You suddenly asked, gazing at me with hope in your eyes.
I shook my head. “I have to go.”
“Okay, but before that, I want to confess something.” My heartbeat accelerated as you moved closer to my face. I understood that what you wanted to confess.
“I know we have met three days back only, but I’m in love with you. These three days were the best days of my life. I love you, Manik.” You confessed after clasping my face, gazing at me deeply and sucked my lips. I was standing still. It was so hard to say goodbye to you when I wanted to grasp your hair and kiss you back, but I controlled myself. I had been craving to feel your lips over mine since three days, but when they finally met, I couldn’t able to do anything.
“Say something.” You said when I didn’t respond.
I closed my eyes and took a deep breath to gather the courage to break your heart. It was so difficult. I wanted to tell you loudly that how much I love you, but to protect you, I had to do this. I couldn’t put your life at risk. I was afraid and I’m still frightened to lose you because Katrina is still alive.
I held your arms and pushed you away from me. I stated sternly. “You and me, we can’t be together. You don’t know anything about me.”
You instantly said, “we’ll know each other with time.”
I again shook my head. “No.”
You became disheartened. “Why? Don’t you like me?” You asked. I wasn’t understanding how to break your heart. I didn’t want to snatch your precious smile.
“I’m really a Vampire, Nandini,” I told you the truth, wondering you would yourself leave me.
You widened your eyes in shock. “It means you weren’t joking that day, you’re really a Vampire?” You asked in disbelief.
I nodded. “Yes.” I enlarged my canine teeth to show you that I’m really a Vampire. You stared at me in shock, but you weren’t scared.
“Oh My God, I just can’t believe it. Vampires are in real.” You palmed your mouth.
“You deserve a normal human being. I’m dangerous for you.” I told you.
“I don’t care. Your truth can’t change the fact that you’re the same person whom I love. I still love you, Manik.” You again confessed after clasping my face, gazing at me, your eyes were filled with immense love. You accepted me after knowing that I’m Vampire. I felt like crying because we can’t be together.
“No, Nandini, I’m dangerous for you. You have to let me go.” I removed your hands from my face and stepped back.
“No, please, don’t snatch my happiness.” You begged, tears rolled down your cheeks. I felt wretched. Your eyes were pleading me to don’t go. You were making things more difficult for me. It was getting harder to leave you. My chest was becoming heavy with the pain.
“I can’t see you like this, you have to forget me. I have to erase myself from your memories.” As I murmured, you narrowed your brows bemusedly.
You asked, “what do you mean?”
“Nothing, just protecting your life and making things easy for you. If you don’t remember me, you don’t have to move on from me.” I told her.
“No, you can’t do this. I don’t want to forget the best days of my life. I don’t want to forget the person who makes me smile and makes me feel whole.” You cried. My heart was aching painfully. It was getting more and more difficult with each passing second. I never thought that I would ever do this.
Suddenly a smile flashed on your face and I looked at you confusingly. “You’re my home and I’ll surely find back my home even if you today erase my memories also.” You wiped your tears, looking at me in determination. I was shocked to see your confidence.
“I love you, Nandini, but I have to do this for you,” I confessed and made you forget me by deeply gazing into your eyes by using my Vampire power. You kept smiling at me. As you blinked your eyes, I swiftly ran out of the window.
I looked at you from the window, you stood there cluelessly for a few seconds. Then you shook your head and went to the washroom.
“Some people can only stay in your heart but not in your life. It’s true.” I murmured to myself and a lone tear trickled down my cheek mechanically. It was the hardest goodbye for me.
“After that, I came to know that Katrina is still behind you. So I joined the college to protect you from her, you said right, you really found your home back and made me realise that if our love is strong, nobody can separate us. I’m sorry for erasing our beautiful moments from your memories. It was really hard for me, but I had no other option.” He told me everything and I was a bit shock. But I could completely understand him. He did this to protect me. I’m not angry with him.
I sighed deeply and held his face. “I’m glad you told me everything. I can understand. It would be so difficult for you, but you still did this to protect me. We will relive those moments and make new memories. I’m not angry. So don’t worry.”
He smiled broadly and hugged me tightly. “I love you so much, Angel. I’m so relieved after knowing that you’re not angry.” He said gleefully, hugging me tighter.
“I love you more.” I snuggled in his warm arms. He kissed my hair. Yes, he was my home. I finally found my home back.
