Her mother rubbed her hair softly. This made her remember one of her childhood memory, similarly, someone else used to do this same thing and she used to just stay in his lap.
Anna immediately stood up and asked her mother to prepare dinner and she went upstairs and closed the door of her room.
'Thinking about memories will bring nothing but pain Anna. Remove them from your heart and brain.'
To divert her mind, she called Alena, "Alena do you have some time?" asked Anna in a husky tone.
"Yeah An, tell me."
She told her everything about today including the incident with Alex, how he came close to her, and how her heartbeat fastened. After listening to all this, Alena sighed, and somewhere she had expected Alena to react in such a way.
"Anna I asked you to stay away from him but still you are interested in going close to him.?"
"I'm not interested in him Alena, you know this." Anna firmly rejected this. But her rejections as not accepted by Alena.
"Then why your heartbeat fastened at that moment, why were you nervous when talking with him?"
"I don't know Alena." Her question put Anna in deep thoughts. This was the most valid question, why was she feeling and behaving like this?
"Anna you can't fall in love with him. Keep your distance with him even if you are a team."
"I understand." Anna simply agreed with her because she knew this is the best for both of them.
"And An, I heard it that he has some special and unknown background too. So you must keep it in might." Said Alena
Hearing this Anna was in thoughts, 'Is he also like me?' But the chances were very slim so she just brushed this opinion very soon. That was not possible because they were like pole apart from each other.
"Anna? Anna you there?" After hearing her name Anna came out of her thoughts.
"I'm here don't worry I will keep this in mind. I am hanging up I have homework to do and that assignment too.
"Okay. I am doing that one too."
"See you tomorrow. Good night."
Anna hung up.
'Anna you can't love anyone understand this.' she told herself
After this, she completed her homework and soon went downstairs to eat dinner with her mother.
While eating dinner mother said,
"An baby, I'm sorry for today."
Anna was confused, "Why mum, what happened?"
"I should never force you to talk to your dad." Mother Marrie was really guilty for placing Anna in such a tough spot but Anna just patted her back.
"Mom it's not your fault. My equation with him isn't what you or others think so you don't need to feel guilty."
After she dinner went to sleep.
On the other side, Alex was standing on his balcony and staring at the sky above him, covered with stars shining in such a black area
His eyes held complicated emotions, no one can understand him well other than himself. Not because he does not let someone read his mind, but because he had isolated himself from others for too long.
'I found you My BABYGIRL. Now, I won't let you go anywhere, because this time, mistakes won't be repeated anymore.'
