Credence Over Ardour - By Mr. Archishman Satpathy

Peaceful Writers International has come up with another English story. This story is brought to you by the founder of the Peaceful Writers International - Mr Archishman Satpathy, the winner of REX Karamveer Global Youth Icon Award associated with Karamveer Chakra Awards and UN, and also won the "Youngest Writer to 200 Anthologies" award by IPA, GOI.

Suddenly a girl came in front of the car. Krish was stubborn and much irritated too. Applied a very hard brake and at once moved out to scold that girl. But to his surprise, the girl was crying a lot and scolding Krish why he hadn't driven her away from life. Then slowly he understood the reason why the girl stepped out in front of the car. He then apologized and took the girl to his quarter near Samson Street. He then has a formal introduction with the girl from which he came to know as Sterlin. Well, she was from a very rich family. But for what purpose did she take a harsh step and be saved by chances and seconds apart from heaven? Krish was at his knees now as he is very emotional after listening to the story of Sterlin. Ok, by this time it's almost clear to him that this step of giving his own life is due to her breakup with an inhuman guy named Akash. He was also from a very rich family, but his ego and jealousy led them to an undesirable breakup. 

But why is she giving her life to such a person who never belonged to her? Is this question in Krish's mind due to anything which everyone named love? Is Krish developing a love for Sterlin? Can one depressed girl of 20 be in love with a sporty 18-year-old guy? Days passed and slowly the health condition of Sterlin was improving. Krish was sitting beside her most of the time examining her health conditions. But who knows this examining of health, caring and thinking about Sterlin most of the time has started a feeling in his heart for her. After some days, the health was totally up to mark and Krish, without self will ask her to tell her address so that he will drop her and her family, who haven't registered any missing complaint about such a period of 15 days will get their jewel. But to his surprise what he listened was totally unbelievable for him. At that instance when Krish asked her to return back to her home, the girl bent down on her knees and proposed to Krish. Literally, tears came out of his eyes and both hugged each other and kissed. And this time by crying, she requested Krish not to take her home back as there was a story in which the conclusion was that the family will kill Sterlin at once they find her. Both Krish and Sterlin were unwilling to know both of their past. One fine morning, when Sterlin was sleeping, Krish was bathing when he heard the sound of notifications in Sterlin's mobile and the text that was written in a WhatsApp chat was unbelievable as it was written "Baby how are you, how much progress is there in the plan?" 

After reading this Krish was just dumbstruck. And to his more surprise, the message was from Akash. This made Krish totally broken as the girl he has believed and thought as his fiance is taking advantage of him and playing games with emotions. But as earlier, Krish up to this moment have developed a deep love for Sterlin. Sterlin woke up and now she, first of all, moved towards Krish and hugged him. She then completes her odd works and went on to check her phone and after seeing the message, deleted it and started crying. Up to this also she didn't know that the message what she is hiding from Krish is already seen by him. Krish then came thereafter hearing the crying sound of her and asked her the reason for such a condition. And without saying anything Sterlin again hugged him and said nothing about the matter. Krish also didn't give much attention to that matter as he was completely in love with Sterlin by that time. Days passed on and Krish checked Sterlin's phone regularly every morning before she woke up and as expected by him, there were no messages from Akash. Then suddenly a thing stuck in his mind. What was the plan Akash was talking about? Is that related to him? But how Akash came to know about Krish?

There are a lot of questions as of now and this time he took them all very seriously. Every time Sterlin move out, Krish was following and to his surprise found nothing suspicious of any direction to answers his thoughtful questions. After a long while, he met one of his college friends Dani who knows how to recover the deleted messages from his WhatsApp account. He talked with him regarding that matter and asked Dani to do the job before 8:00 am the next day. Then he went back and thought many times before taking this step that is actually a disgraceful condition for his love towards Sterlin. He must not doubt Sterlin in this manner but he has no other choices left. And to his surprise, the next morning he woke up late and the plan gets cancelled. Again he met Dani and asked the job to be done the next day. And that day Krish was successful. He took the phone with him towards Dani's house. 

He took the necessary information and security checks and returned the mobile phone to Krish. Then, Krish came back home and put that phone in the same place where Sterlin usually kept it. Then, after two days, Dani got all the documents and parcelled them to Krish's house. The parcel reached in such a time when only Sterlin was in the house alone and Krish was in the University. Sterlin paid no interest to that parcel for Krish and put it there for him, totally unknown of the fact that all her plannings will be confronted within a short period of time. Now Krish returned back and found that parcel and planned to open it once Sterlin went to sleep. After dinner, Krish was more attentive now, as he was finding ways for how Sterlin will sleep fast and he will read that reports. Sterlin finally slept and Krish took out the reports and he fell on his knees reading that. He felt down after reading those and was totally scared. He read the deleted messages among which the story was to kill him but, "how didi Akash knew about Krish?"

After thinking for a long, an idea came to his mind that he missed out on checking Akash's photo. Maybe he changed his name or else introduced any other name to Sterlin. He went to check his WhatsApp profile pic and to his surprise, that boy who was calling him Akash was actually Anish, who was a childhood friend of Krish. And yes, as expected by this time, there was a story between Anish and Krish. There was a girl named Janhvi whom Anish loved and due to Krish, they both were separated just a few days ago and for that reason, now Anish is using Sterlin to kill Krish!!!!

Krish was totally surprised and to his knowledge, he had never had such a big planned enemy intention towards anyone before. And to add to his bunch of surprises, one more was Sterlin had not replied after she proposed Krish. This happening is also making him feel uncomfortable as he was totally unaware but after seeing some previous chats again that surprise failed and yes. Anish and Sterlin were in love and both planned on killing Krish. But Krish had developed a bad habit of blindly believing Sterlin in any possible situation however worst it could be. So he didn't act in front of Sterlin like he had known all the game by this time because his possession of trust is more than love.

One fine evening he saw Sterlin talking with someone secretly in the corridor and started moving towards her without her notice but again he felt it like having a doubt on her. So he took a turn from there itself and straightforward went to his room, locked the door from inside and cried a lot after getting a call from Dani regarding a message Sterlin got from Akash...yes Anish that the day after tomorrow they both will be playing their last move. He then went to the park sit there for some time and decided to trust Sterlin after such a harsh condition of costing self-life too because he has not only loved Sterlin from outside but also her soul. That's the reason one day passed and Sterlin was totally unaware of the fact that Krish knew all the plans. And finally, that day came.

It was a sunny morning. This time Anish messaged Sterlin to bring Krish to the old Iron Factory behind the melting point junction. And accordingly, as expected by Krish, Sterlin woke up early that day and started crying a lot. When asked the reason, she mentioned nothing and after some time hugged him and asked him to move together towards the old Iron Factory. Without hesitation, Krish agreed and they hire a taxi for that too. During the way, Krish was totally dumbstruck and knew properly that this was his last moment in this beautiful world of betrayers. So before reaching the last destination, Krish gave his locket to Sterlin and asked her to wear it as a gift. He gave his rings to Sterlin but till this moment she got another message about the planning and was not interested in knowing that. Sterlin took out the phone, unlocked it and start reading the message. It was written like, "You please tell him to wait near the junction and you please come out of that factory from the backside. My men have fit some time bombs and it will blast at 10:40. She started crying after reading this message and gave her mobile to Krish and cried wholeheartedly. Krish showed no interest in opening the phone, try to search and read the messages. Finally, the taxi reached and both went out.

And can you guess what happened now.....Yes... The possession of trust over love. It was ticking 10:30 and Sterlin asked Krish to go out and wait for her outside the back gate of the factory. Krish then moved happily as he knew his life will be over after a few minutes totally unaware of the twist Sterlin was going to bring in his story. Sterlin then went inside the junction and saw the clock ticking 10:38. Only 2 minutes and everything will be over but why she changed her path? It was now ticking 10:39 and the last 30 seconds remaining and suddenly she heard the sound of police sirens. Cops as many as a battalion came there and tried to save them both. They took Krish into the van and started searching for Sterlin. They found her near the junction point and now only 20 seconds remaining. Just they tried to take her out and the bomb burst. Krish was totally scared and ran out of the van to see what kind of sound was that from inside. 

He was unable to see and hear anything clearing due to the blast. And he lost his conscience and fell down. When he opened his eyes, he saw himself in hospital and started searching Sterlin. And after he got the news he was totally destroyed from the heart and fell down. Sterlin had lost her life in the blast to save him. Police informed there as Dani was continuously tracking Sterlin's WhatsApp account and called Krish several times but he didn't pick up, so he informed the police. Now the condition of Krish was a little bit okay. His parents were sitting beside his bed. He heard the news that Anish...so-called Akash was jailed. He cried a lot remembering the old times spend by him with Sterlin, those sleepless nights sitting behind her but now he has to accept, Sterlin must have reached heaven but have taught us a lesson that 'Trust do matter more than what love does'. In this way, the changed Krish is now a Software Engineer in Google. He always kept a photo of him with Sterlin in his pocket and whenever he faced any situation like this took out the photo and proudly says, "Today and tomorrow whatever the situation may be, Trust will win. The possession of Trust over Love will be continued".
