Attraction vs intimidation  (An Extension to the previous post)

Attraction vs intimidation (An Extension to the previous post)

I was still wondering on all my possibilities to handle this situation, when he said –

“Tell me one thing, do you really like the taste of cough syrup and cough drops so much?”

Now what kind of question was that and where did it come from? - I gave a confusing look to him, since I was still not sure of my voice.

He simply rolled his eyes and said – “Look at yourself”

I followed his words immediately and saw myself. I was thoroughly drenched in the rain, that was now showering heavily on us and then suddenly I started feeling cold to the point that I began to shiver.

It was so foolish at the first place to have a walk in the rain, and so stupid of me, to not even notice getting drenched, when I was with him. Had I lost my senses or what?

My face might have portrayed my sudden comeback to the reality, because I could see his lips smirking at me; I gritted my teeth.

Let us get back to your place. We anyway have the whole evening to decide that.” He simply turned around and I noticed after sometime, he was steering me holding my elbow, as If I was a kid.

Now wait a moment, what did he mean by “whole evening”. Isn’t he leaving yet?

Again my senses of which I used to be so proud of till now, failed to acknowledge any kind of fear or anger, no matter how hard I tried to bring them up.

The only thing I could feel was excitement - priming up in my mind, even though conscious mind registered it to be highly childish and idiotic.

Guess! The subconscious won.

It took us less time to reach back to my room. My roommate had already seen us coming from a distance (was she keeping an eye on us; getting jealous!! ) because the moment we entered, she got us two steaming cups of coffee and I was truly thankful to her despite my doubts (How can I have these silly thoughts? Damn! )

He stood there for a moment, staring at the coffee cups till the time I dried my hair (Oh! Why doesn’t he look at me now?) .

The moment I was done and bent down to pick up my coffee cup, he whispered gently –

“I’ll pick you up at 6 tomorrow.Need to leave now.”

I could hardly register myself to comprehend his words when his long fingers just gently touched my hair, and he was gone.

For a moment I was blown away with shock, another moment I stayed glued to my place, just blinking my eyes, seeing his back, watching him getting into his blue BMW.

The sound of the car over pouring rain, shook me up.

I was still standing there, not realizing if it was a dream or a reality.

I could now feel a fight going on in my mind between attraction and intimidation.

Though this fight had its own share of pleasure, I knew who the winner was!
Ending of a dream? .. Or the beginning of a nightmare?

Ending of a dream? .. Or the beginning of a nightmare?

"Can we go for a walk please? If you don't mind.." He said, the moment I turned back to go to my room.

My heart skipped a beat for a nanosecond; I still don't know if it was the rage or the shock that made me stop. I turned back to look at him.

I couldn't have believed him saying this to me, if I myself had not turned and watched him speaking the last few words

"Please!" He said; it was so difficult to know anything from his face.

I sighed and nodded.

We started walking slowly and I noticed that it had started drizzling outside.

"Why did you have to lie to me?" I said slowly, not looking at him but could feel that expressionless stare on my face.

"What else do you expect me to do?" he said, prolonging his stare without blinking.

I considered the question and felt more frustrated for not getting any decent answer to it myself.

"Forget it.. So, what do you want now?" I blurted out, unable to keep my composure.

"What are you doing tomorrow? Can we go for a movie, if you like to?" he said casually.

I was shocked at the sudden change in the subject of this stranger, who had already fallen into bad books of mine, before even meeting me.

But somehow the tone and the velvety softness of his voice was so impressive, it made me stand still.

I looked at him for a moment and was unable to get any words to reply back, on this direct attack.

He considered the silence with the same piercing stare and I could only mumble -

"What? Are you serious?"

"Of course I am. What do you think now, do I have to remain just a liar to you for the rest of my life?", he said it so simply as if we've known each other so well, that I must somehow understand him and his weirdness; this very person I've met just half an hour back and have openly hated since then.

His personality was overshadowing all my willingness to just say "Get Lost". I preferred staying quiet for the moment.

I felt so mesmerized by his presence, yet doubtful about him asking me out.

I felt fuming at his arrogance he showed to me, before even knowing me , yet I could not stop the thrill going through my spine while just walking with him.

I hated him for his attitude towards me, but was equally surprised (to the level of being shocked) on the sudden change of his behavior.

And last but not the least, the thing that scared me the most was - Why? Why was I unable to say no to him ?

The thrill and chill confused me - Was it the ending of a dream? .. Or the beginning of a nightmare?
Do I dazzle you?

Do I dazzle you?

"Perfect." He flashed his gleaming smile, dazing her momentarily.

"Um" — she shook her head, blinking — "your server will be right out." She walked away unsteadily.

"You really shouldn't do that to people," I criticized. "It's hardly fair."

"Do what?"

"Dazzle them like that — she's probably hyperventilating in the kitchen right now."

He seemed confused.

"Oh, come on," I said dubiously. "You have to know the effect you have on people."

He tilted his head to one side, and his eyes were curious. "I dazzle people?"

"You haven't noticed? Do you think everybody gets their way so easily?"

He ignored my questions. "Do I dazzle you?"

"Frequently," I admitted.
