A Devil With(out) a Soul..!!

And we fell in Love..we had the perfect marriage that anyone would dream of..the best designer dresses, favourite music band, red roses and a lot of happy faces all around..we were too excited to wonder how quickly everything had happened..we had met just a few days back and here we were taking the BIG step! We said “I do” like two people who had been waiting since ages to be by each other’s side had been given a lifetime chance to be together..through thick and thin..! I always called him “Devil” for the little mischiefs and pranks he played on me..and each time I did that, he would add “with a soul” with a smirk on his cute face. Now while putting the ring on my finger and tying me to himself for lifetime, he said “with a soul, and now a soulmate too!” and made me blush..!

We were both happy until that day..when the mask he had been wearing all throughout was out in the open and he showed his true colours..!!


Everyone left the room..there was silence and darkness all around..both in the room as well as in my life..I wondered what I had done to deserve this..was saying the truth out loud that punishing rewarding..??

And then there was a creak of the door..a little light followed in..disturbing the darkness..the darkness of the room..the darkness of my life!! I waited to see who had cared enough to turn against the world and walk in when everyone chose to walk out..and I saw his shadow..it didn’t take me long to realize that it was him..! Of’course it was HIM..! who else could it be..!!

I have had a similar sequence in my dream,
but all this would have happened only after I was dead..
Here in reality, I was alive..!
My soul would fly up to heaven and glowing light would enlighten my soul..
In my dreams, it was an angel..
but here in reality, it was the Demon!

He came near me..held me up and said..”You nasty little creature!I How did you even think that you could make my family and friends go against me..Happy now? Now that you know that they believe me and not you..! hah! now stay here till you get back to your senses and realize what a mess you have got yourself into!! Either find a way to clean it up or rot here till the last drop of your blood dries!” His words broke not only the deafening silence of the room but also broke all my hopes of living surviving breathing..!


And he left..I heard the lock on the door moving..the final confirmation that I was captivated..at a place that I once thought to be my own house! The flood of my tears that had been held up for so long, came rushing out..as if the gates of a dam had been opened up! I could no more breathe as if someone had squeezed my lungs or cut the oxygen supply in the room! For once I expected someone..anyone, from the entire crowd standing right outside that door, to believe me..trust me with my words..give me a chance to explain what exactly had happened and not the twisted version that they knew..!

But alas! I felt like the world had ended and I was the only one dying surviving..!!

and now I knew..he really was a DEVIL!
With Without a soul..
and definitely without a soulmate..!!

..and in that one moment..all the hatred, that had been buried inside me since aeons, came out..infact exploded..and with all the force and vigor in me, that had been held back till today, I plunged the knife deep into his body till blood flowed out gushing..smearing his entire body and my hands..my hands..which had long been tied, came out revolting..as if they could no more bear the anguish and in front of my eyes..he fell down..too soon to even make me realize what had actually happened..


His body and the sea of the red fluid covered almost the entire kitchen floor..kitchen..the place which had been my room for years now..the place where I had cried myself to death so many times..where I had thought of giving up on life for more than countless times..the floor which I had mopped and cleaned just a few hours back..not realizing it would all be smeared with the red liquid that flowed out of a devil’s body..the place which had for long been a prison for me..was now the place where I gained my freedom..freedom from the wildest nightmares of my life..


 I was still not sure how to react..there seemed to be a war between my own organs..while the mind felt happy..the heart ached..it felt sore..like it had lost something really precious..but the mind..it felt satisfied and almost danced with joy..


It seemed that with every inch of the red fluid on the floor, a drop of blood drained out of my body too..it carried the emotions of agony and pain..that had been inflicted upon me by the man who was now lying on the floor..dead and helpless..it gave me a soothing feeling somehow..


Suddenly I heard a little noise..I turned around in amazement..I found her staring at me..and the dead body..in that one moment I realized that all my deepest feelings had been laid bare..all my darkest fears had come alive..my world had just turned upside down..the knife dropped down from my hands and I turned pale..I did not have any answers for the crime I had just committed..I was not even sure how I managed to do something like this..but I DID IT and there was no denying the fact..!!

P.s : My first attempt at a short story..an excerpt..and that too something like this..not sure what made me write this..I guess after loads about love and relationships..this one somehow found a way for itself..your views and comments will be highly appreciated.. 🙂
