No one loves to feel negative about themselves. No want wants to suffer from insecurity. No one wants anxiety. Every human wants to love and to be loved. Everyone wants someone whom they can trust but what would you do if you were continuously betrayed, backstabbed by people who called them your own, your friends?
Maya rubbed off her tears and looked at her reflection in the mirror. She wanted Z (Zan) to love her as she loved him. And somewhere she had the hope that he will love him, maybe someday.
Maya had noticed something, she was always the first to initiate a conversation with Zan. She always texted him first, called him. She was getting tired of this game, which made her decide that she will not text or call him anymore. If he wants her in his life, he will have to come now.
8 days later, around 1:00 am, she got a message on WhatsApp from Zan out of blue.
Zan: What time do you sleep?
Maya was reading a book but as she got the text she opened it and looked at it for a while and then replied, “Why do you want to know that?”
Zan: I am lonely. I wasn’t a bad person you know. People made me like this.
Previously on The Chronicles of Maya: Care…..matters!
Maya realized that Zan was drunk, yet she decided to try and understand if he was alright so she continued the conversation with him.
Maya: Is everything ok?
Zan: You know, everyone hurts me. My friends, my ex-girlfriend. Everyone called me a trouble maker. No one loved me. NO ONE.
Maya: You might be a trouble maker once when you were not working but now you are in a different city, you have your own business. You are a better person now.
Zan: Yeah, you are right.
Maya: And you know I love you right? I am always there for you, by your side.
Zan: 😀 😀 you know I am going home.
(Note: Rohtak is a city in Haryana State, in India)
Zan: Yup, for mom’s birthday.
Maya: When are you leaving?
Zan: On 6th March
Maya: 5 days from now…
Zan: Let’s meet up before that. I haven’t seen you in a long time.
Maya: I’m pretty much busy, but will try to make time and let you know. By the way, you haven’t answered me yet.
Zan: About what?
Maya: About me being in love…
Zan: We will talk about that when we meet.
Maya: Sure. Goodnight then…

Zan saw the message but he didn’t reply. Maya had butterflies in her stomach. She hoped for him to say yes.
Maya messaged Anil about the conversation she had with Z. Anil replied to it with the smile emoji.
On the other side that same night Anil was staying at Z’s place (obviously Maya didn’t know that). Z told him too about what Maya had just told him. Anil ignored it and poured himself another drink.
Did Z love Maya? What was Anil up to?
