Excerpt from “If Its Not Forever.” by Durjoy Dutta - Chapter Seven - Haridwar 

“A warm breath grazes my neck, and I hear a soft whisper in my ear. ‘Get up,’ Avantika looks at me and smiles, her hair falls over my face and she smells of expensive moisturizers and shampoo.

Shrey and Tiya haven’t woken up yet. I get up and follow Avantika the balcony, where she has already ordered tea for us. The tea tastes horrible but the early morning breeze is amazing. We look inside and Shrey has already moved to the bed. He hugs Tiya, who purrs in her sleep, and kisses her on her neck. Avantika looks at them and smiles. I wrap myself around Avantika and hold her close.
‘The girl is crazy,’ she says.
‘I know. I don’t know what Shrey is doing with her.’

‘Naah, she is a nice girl. She apologized yesterday,’ she says.

‘She did?’

Avantika nods.

‘Deb… why Haridwar?’

‘Umm… just like that,’ I say.

‘You can hide it from them, but not from me,’ she says, scepticism drips from her eyes. I try to lie but I have never lied to her. I give up. I knew this was coming and I was wondering last night why she took so long to ask this.

‘Fine, I will tell you.’

We sit down with our legs hanging from the ledge and I start to tell her everything that has happened since the day of the blast. She is partly shocked, partly excited. But mostly, she thinks that I have gone mad.

‘Why didn’t you tell me before, Deb?’

‘I didn’t want you to think that I am crazy.’

‘I think I would have,’ she says and smiles. ‘Why are you doing this? Are you okay?’

‘See? That’s why I didn’t tell you. You think I’m crazy, don’t you?’

‘Aww. I don’t, Deb. I just want to know why. I can ask that, right?’

‘Of course, you can, but I don’t know,’ I say. ‘I just want to know about this guy. I just think that it could have been me.’

‘Don’t say that. Nothing will ever happen to you.’

‘But, Avantika… I have you. You know what I have for you. You know what my parents mean to me and what Shrey means to me. If tomorrow I am not there anymore, you can tell them that. This guy died without telling anyone. Piyush, his girl… I could have been him. I could have gone without telling you how much I love you. This story is not yet finished,’ I say.

She has tears in her eyes. She doesn’t give a shit about the guy in the diary, she cares about me.

‘I would have known you love me,’ she says and I kiss away a sole teardrop resting on her cheek.

‘I know it’s crazy but I want to find the girl from the diary and hand this over to her. The guy deserves it, don’t you think?’ I ask.

‘I am coming with you.’”
