Everything was calm and quiet around her. She could even hear her feet walking in those dry leaves. Though it was fall then, she could feel her body turn cold. Her way became blurred for her to see. She could feel her eyes welling up. She was feeling like a sharp sword was piercing her heart. Her eyes which helped her in holding her tears betrayed her. She was on the road weeping. She actually doesn't know the reason behind her tears. She remembered him his face, his eyes, his smile, his voice was driving her crazy. She tried really hard to stand. Now she started running around the pavement because she knew that she would break down if she walks. She went home and slammed her room door. "RIYA", she could here some one shout but don't know who exactly it was. She went near the mirror the most proud possession a girl has. Her face was not normal she was looking like a haunted ghost. Two days back she remembered how beautiful she was , the same mirror which showed her as a queen of eternal beauty is now showing her ugly. Her brown eyes , her curly hair which was like a water falls , her lips , her features would drove any man crazy. She remembered the first day she met him, his innocence was cute enough to make him beautiful. She thought of the day whe she heared those lovely three words " I LOVE YOU, Riya!" from his genuine voice. Her thought was broken when she heard her cell phone ringing she took the call and could hear Jasper,"Riya are you crazy? What do u know about him? You are just his friend and not his love. " That is when she cried loudly thinking of the moment she rejected him. With deep strokes of cry in her voice she spoke now " Jasper i am broken now. I have broken him. He is no more now but i feel like i miss him. This makes me feel am in love with him. He has now taught me what love is". Jasper in a low voice " Listen Riya, You cannot bring Carl back. Don't spoil yourself thinking of him".Riya's reply horrified Jasper. Riya went out the next morning, she sat on a bench in a park she felt a warm breeze quiet unusual than everyday. She felt that she was getting cared by the wind , the air around her was filled with love she felt someone caressing her. Her lips which once forgot the meaning of the word smile regained its knowledge. She was smiling , even she was unaware of her smile. Love makes us smile right. She thought Carl was around in the form of breeze around her even after death. Riya forgot to turn around. when she moved from the park Jasler was standing in a far distance staring at her. His eyes was true , and the breeze it was not Carl's but it was Jasper's. On the way back home Riya found thatvshe lost the ring which Carl gave her she was worried a lot and when she returned home Jasper was waiting there to give her the ring she missed. Riya bounded with joy hugged Jasper tightly. That is when she realized that, she felt the same warmth which she felt in the park. Suddenly with shivers she moved off. She ran upstairs to her room and wore the ring her body was now telling the truth. Down Jasper remembered how he bought an exact same ring for Riya like the one which Carl gave her. The ring is Jasper's and not Carl's. It was Riya's birthday and she was getting ready for the party , Jasper banged the door. Riya stepped out in her pretty red gown with cute looks she asked what with her eyes. He just drowned in those eyes, he gave her a rectangular box wrapped in a gift paper. she with smile took the gift it was a bit heavy for her to carry so he helped her take it in. Her smile turned him on , He kept his left hand on her hip and pushed her towards the wall. She was shivering with his acts but wondered what was going to happen. His right hand slowly moved towards her face he was now caressing her lips and stroking it slowly. He could even here her heart beat it was so strong the aroused him more into a beast. "Why didn't you know what i want" asked jasper in a deep voice. "what do you wan....." was all Riya could ask, before she completed her question he pressed his lips on hers. His left hand was there on her hip and squeezing her even more. They lasted for a minute. He came to his sences and moved back her eyes was still closed probably this was her first kiss. That was unexpectable , he was staring at her. Her eyes took more than five seconds to slowly open. Sorry was all he could say, he turned to go. That is when she did not allow him to back off. She holded his collars tightly and questioned him of the breeze of Carl's she feels whenever Jasper comes near her. And Jasper "You feel the breeze when am near you right? Then those warmth given to you is mine not his, i told you know, you don't know me" said he."Do you love me?" was her question now. "The gift there has all the answers for your questions" he said with tearful eyes but a bold voice ans went. Because if he stays even a minute long he would cry. She opened the gift and found a guitar and a diary she first chose to read the diary. In the diary it was writtwn thn Carl was no one else but Jasper's cousin. There was a revenge story going on in their families. Carl came to know that Jasper was in love with Riya and would do anything for her. Carl thought of breaking Jasper's happiness by making her (Riya) fall for him. But all of his attempts failed and Jasper was happy that she didn't accept Carl. Later Carl tried to kill Jasper in a road accident where he ended up killing himself. This was the time when she felt she was in love with Carl. Jasper did not take effort in revealing thia truth to Riya as she would feel more betrayed if she comes to know about Carl's intention. That is when Riya realises everything and runs down stairs with the guitar. She hugs Jasper infront of all and asks sorry. He hugs her back both could hear each others heart beat music. She asks him how come you thought that you can tell me about his betrayal this day. He smiled " I don't want you to loose your sweet life thinking about him". She suddenly struggled removing the ring which Carl gave her and threw it but Jasper with horror said that it was his ring. "o my god!" was all Riya could say with questining eyes. He said that he bought an exact same ring which she had first. She consoled him that she will have to wear her engagement ring her whole life time and so she cannot were so many rings. "RIYA " the same voice she heared a few days back but unable to catch up with the voice was her mother. "Jasper told us everything. Am happy for you my darling". Riya hugged her mother. She suddenly turned to the guitar which Jasper presented and saw something written on top of it. "Cdim G G...." she asked what that was. he replied by playing a tune and said those honest words " I LOVE YOU". Riya this time chose to speek to him seeing his eyes " Carl taught me what love was, but you taught me what true love is. I LOVE YOU!!".
