you ever been wrong in life? The decisions you make , the assumptions
you make and the realization that you're wrong , did it ever do any
good to you ? all these always run in your mind don't they ? it was
for me too and did it do any good for me ?, that takes me to the
night I met those eyes .
was already late and I have to reach my hostel in like 15 mins or I
will have to stay outside or I might have to ask the taxi driver to
let me sleep in his taxi if he doesn't take me in 15 minutes and
there he comes 5 minutes late already to pick me up, I felt bad that
he now has only 10 minutes or he will have to let me sleep in his
taxi for the night but that thought was vanished after seeing the
taxi driver. He looked like a complete psychopath with full of
negativity around, suddenly everything felt really wrong around me.
My heart increased its pace when he started the engines, 'should I
call someone and talk till I reach my hostel? Or should I just get
off saying some stupid reason and book another taxi?', I asked
myself. 'getting off should be a bad idea, what if he takes a gun
out or a knife and threatens to kill me? ', and I answered myself.
I started sweating and finally decided to call my friend, I took my
phone to get a heart attack of my life, I unlocked my phone to see it
getting switched off. Damn, I forgot and its only been 2 minutes
since I've gotten inside this taxi and I was almost going to faint
, I was terrified and dint know what to do.
It's been 5
minutes of creepiness around me, my phone's gone, the darkness
inside and outside, the never ending creepy songs his music player
has been playing , I was even scared to ask him to stop , all this
has made me go nuts . Just then, he did something very disturbing,
nothing else was visible or heard except for what he did. He adjusted
the center mirror of the taxi and his eyes met mine, dark deadly
eyes, he took out a towel and passed it to me, ' I think you might
need this ' , and those words made me sweat more.
I? this doesn't even look like the usual way to my hostel and
that's when he started speeding up and I started freaking out.
'hold on tight' , he said , I was like what ? what is happening .
everything started spinning around I couldn't feel my hands, my
legs started to tremble, I started shouting for help, I couldn't
control anymore and just when I thought everything was going to end,
a headlight popped out from behind and another followed by, following
our taxi, I felt relieved for a second. I remember that sound I
couldn't realize what it was with all the creepiness around that
never struck in my head. I started shouting more, he has locked the
window button too, I kept banging the door and the seats, I got
freaked out, 'ma'am please stay calm ', the words were sweet
but his voice destroyed the sweetness in it. The bikers somehow
managed to come to sides of the taxi and I switched on the inside
light in the taxi to make sure to let them know that I was being
As the speed kept increasing, I got to see the
faces of the bikers from the light I switched on, those bikers were
keeping up their pace but their eyes were on me, I turned to other
side to look at the other biker and his eyes was on me too, a sudden
insecure felt looking at their eyes, their eyes was not the helpful
type, it was lust.
I din know what to do, I kept turning from
one side to the other and in that movement my eyes met the taxi
driver's eyes once again in the mirror but he broke it soon to
concentrate on the roads. As I kept looking at his eyes, I felt
secured for the first time in 8 minutes, his eyes felt helpful,
looking back at the bikers and then back at the taxi driver's eyes
that's when I realized something. He increased the speed of the
taxi, losing them in the streets of some place I don't know about
but my eyes were right at the center mirror trying to meet his. He
was trying to keep me safe all this while and I on the other side
felt wrong about him right from the start.
All this was
running in my mind while I was taken on a stretcher to the operation
room and I saw nothing but him running alongside the doctor and the
nurses, here I am 5 years later waking up to see him holding a baby,
'it's a boy' ,His eyes met mine while he said that and THOSE
DEADLY EYES felt beautiful to me right from the time he took me to
the hostel 30 minutes late.
