Hii everyone… today no bak-bak… Just there is small notice at the end of the episode… Do read it… 🙂 🙂

Recap: Ap agrees to let Sanky stay… Swara hugs Sanky…

********** Episode 5 ********

That night Sanky gets a dream again… He is standing at the same lonely place and he sees the same radiant face once again emerging from the white light… But this time the distressing look on the face has vanished somewhere… and a beautiful smile has taken its place… Sanky smiles in his sleep looking at the smiling face… and then he hears the same voice again… but this time the anxiety in the voice has been replaced by a sigh of relief…

Voice: I’m glad… I’m glad that you didn’t ignore me… neither me nor the voice of conscious…!! Thank you for coming here…!! (Sanky looks on) But this is going to change everything forever…!! You have so much to face now… The things you might be running from now on will be your destiny one day…!! You are not what you think you are…!!
Sanky: I don’t think anything else… I know that I’m Varun… and that’s what I think..!!
Voice: No you are not…!! You really think so…??
Sanky: Then who am I…??
Voice: You will get to know soon…!!
Sanky: But…
Voice: Just believe in yourself…!!
Sanky: At least tell me what you mean…
Voice: And follow what your heart says… Don’t listen to anyone…!!
Sanky: What are you trying to say…?? At least tell me what’s going to happen…
Voice: Good bye… Will meet you soon…!!
Sanky: But… (the image starts fading away amongst the white light it came from) No… Wait…!!

The image disappears completely…

———————–.

Sanky gets up with a jerk… He is breathing heavily and sweating profusely… He gazes around and finds himself in a different place, not his own room where he has been ever since he remember… Then he recalls the incidents of past two days… He shifts his gaze towards the bed and finds Swara sleeping there peacefully… She sleeps as if she has been awake for ages… Sanky gets up from the couch and takes a glass of water… After drinking the water he goes to sleep again…!!

Next morning… Sanky is sleeping on the couch when his sleep gets broken due to some rustle and hustle inside the room… He opens his eyes and gets startled on seeing Swara leaning towards him her face merely a few inches away from his… She has a towel wrapped around her head making it clear that just now she has taken a head bath… She blinks her eyelashes seeing him awake… Once… twice… thrice…!!

Sanky: W… What are you doing Swara…??
Swara: (still leaning towards him) That’s what I am asking…!! What are you doing on the couch Mr. Maheshwari…??
Sanky: (fumbles realizing that he is still on the couch) Woh… I was… I mean… I…
Swara: (straightens herself up and keeps her hand on her waist) I… main… me… what Sanky…!! You know naa that couch is not a comfortable place for someone of your height… Then why were you sleeping here…??
Sanky: (thinks something) Haan… wo… actually I had some office work… So I was doing it and I sat on the couch so that you don’t get disturbed and I don’t know when I fell asleep here only… (he says all in one go and takes a sigh of relief)
Swara: Really…!! You think so much about me… You are so cute…!! (she pulls his cheeks and gives him a wide grin… Sanky gets shocked) Okay now come on get ready… the pooja will start in half-an-hour…
Sanky: Hmm… okay…!!

He gets up and moves towards washroom when Swara calls him…

Swara: Sanky… are you sure…??
Sanky: About what…??
Swara: That you went to the couch so that I don’t get disturbed…
Sanky: Of course… What else might be the reason..??
Swara: No, its just… something I thought… no problem… leave it…!!
Sanky: (gives a confused look) What did you think…??
Swara: (smiles sheepishly) Yahi ke… You find me so hot that you are unable to resist…!!
Sanky: What…!! (super shocked)
Swara: Why are you giving such expressions that I’m someone else…!! Come on, I’m your wife… (she winks at him and then turns towards the dressing table to get ready)
Sanky: (to himself) Are they sure that she is not well…?? In fact I think it’s other way round… It’s the people who are living with her who actually need a doctor…!! Hey bhagwan… yeh kahan aa gaya main…!!

He takes a deep breath and goes to freshen up…

——————–.

After 20 minutes… Sanky comes out of the washroom and finds Swara sitting on the bed… She is holding something in her hand but Sanky is unable to see it…

Swara: (looks at him) You came… I was waiting for you…!!
Sanky: For me…?? Why…??
Swara: (smiles) For something you always do…!!

Sanky looks on and she opens her fist showing a small red color box to him… She forwards her palm towards him and opens the lid of the box…

Sanky: (shocked) Sin… sin… sindoor…!!
Swara: Why are you so shocked…?? You used to apply it on my hairline daily…!! So what happened now…!! Come on… now apply it…!!
Sanky: (looks at her shocked) I… me… But… how can I…??
Swara: Come on naa Sanky… Don’t waste my time I have to go for the pooja also….!!

[Note: In Hindu tradition, Sindoor (vermillion) has a very sacred meaning… It’s something that binds a husband and a wife together… It’s often said that if a boy applies sindoor on a girl’s hairline they are bound together]

Sanky looks at her and then recalls what Ap had said yesterday while applying the band-aid on his finger… He realizes that she did it for this moment only… He slowly moves his right hand and shows it to Swara…

Swara: (worried) Sanky… how did you get hurt…?? (keeps the box and holds his hand) Show me…!! Is it paining so much…??

She tries to remove the band-aid… Sanky gets worried and holds her hand…

Sanky: Swara we should not remove a band-aid…!!
Swara: But at least let me see whether it is something serious or not…!!
Sanky: Don’t worry Swara… It’s nothing… Just a small scratch…!!
Swara: Are you sure…??
Sanky: (smiles) 100%… now come on… get ready… I’ll be waiting downstairs…!!

Swara nods her head and Sanky storms out of the room… He walks away with quick long steps and as soon as he is out of his room he leans to a wall…

Sanky: (takes deep breath) What are you doing Varun…?? Lying to her like this…!! But it’s for her only…!!

He moves slowly and goes downstairs…

—————————–.

After the pooja… Sanky goes to Ap… She is setting the dining table while Swara is prepares the breakfast…

Sanky: (clears his throat) Umm… hmm… I wanted to ask you something…!!
Ap: (looks at him) Hmm… ask…??
Sanky: Actually… If you don’t mind…!! I wanted to ask about Shlok…!! I mean what kind of person was he and how were his relationship with Swara…!! Durga Prasad sir told me that it was an arranged marriage and there was… hardly any love between them…!!
Ap: (gives a painful smile) He doesn’t know anything…!!
Sanky: What…??
Ap: (sits on the chair and takes a deep breath) Shlok loved Swara…!!
Sanky: (shocked) Really…?? But…
Ap: Shlok was a bit shy type of person… He never disclosed his feelings to anyone except for me… Not also to Swara…!! He wanted to know what Swara felt about him…!! That day… when he left us… for… forever… (her voice chokes in between and Sanky keeps his hand on her shoulder)… (she wipes off a few drops of tears trailing down her cheeks)…
Sanky: It’s okay… If you don’t want…!!
Ap: No… you should listen… It’s important for you to know… It will be helpful… (Sanky nods his head) Actually that day… Sanky returned back from USA after a deal… and he was about to propose Swara that day in the evening… But he was never able to… He took Swara along with him but they never reached their destination…!! He was never able to her what he felt about her… (Ap starts sobbing)
Sanky: (wipes off his tears from the corner of his eyes) And… and how did Swara felt about him…??
Ap: She respected him… Liked him…!! But it was far away from love…!! I thought that maybe after Shlok proposes her she will also start loving him slowly and slowly…!! She considered Shlok as her friend… In fact her best friend…!! They married just to make the business relation amongst the two companies better even when they were actually totally opposite to each other…!! On one hand Swara used to speak a lot whereas Shlok was a bit introvert type… Swara is completely Indian types… she always likes to wear saree and salwar suit…!! I even asked her one day why she never wears any western outfits…She should change a bit from time to time… Do you know what she replied…??
Sanky: What…??
Ap: That she haven’t found anyone worthy of it that she should change for him…!!

Sanky smiles and is about to say something when Dp comes in the dining area…

Dp: Annapurna… Mr. Sen Gupta is coming in an hour… Get some snacks ready for them…
Ap: Them…?? Don’t tell me he is also coming…!! (Sanky looks at her)
Dp: Yes he is Annapurna… But what is your problem with Sahil…??
Ap: You sure already know what is my problem… I just don’t like the way he behaves with Swara… It’s like as if she is his property…!!
Dp: It’s nothing like that…!!

Ap opens her mouth to say something but Swara enters with the breakfast…

Swara: (smiles holding the tray) Breakfast is ready…!!
Dp: And what do we have in breakfast…??
Swara: (smiles) Sanky’s favourite… Aaloo ke parathe…!!

Sanky smiles looking at her… She keeps the parathas on the dining table along with two bowls… One having curd and another having butter…

Ap: (to herself) Oh no… What to do now… Varun doesn’t know that Shlok preferred butter with the parathas…!!What if he picks up curd…?? Most of the people like curd with the parathas… I can’t tell him also… Swara is standing here only…!!

Dp looks at Ap and understands what she is worried about… He also gets tensed…

Swara makes everyone sit down and serves the breakfast… She keeps the two bowls at the center… Dp and Ap get tensed as they are worried that if Sanky picks up the wrong bowl Swara will start questioning… Sanky forwards his hand towards the bowl of curd… Dp and Ap look at him full of anxiety… Swara gets suspicious of their behavior and looks at Sanky… Just then he smiles and picks up the bowl having homemade butter…

Swara: Sanky… Unlike everyone why do you always prefer butter to curd…??
Sanky: (smiles) I like it this way…!!

Dp and Ap take a sigh of relief…

————————.

After breakfast… Everyone is in their individual rooms… Only Ap and Sanky are sitting in the hall…

Ap: (starting the conversation) How did you know…??
Sanky: Huhh… What…??
Ap: How did you know that Shlok liked the parathas with butter and not with curd…??
Sanky: I didn’t knew…??
Ap: (shocked) Then why did you pick the bowl of butter…??
Sanky: Because I like it that way..!! It’s my favorite too…!!

Ap gets more shocked but shrugs off thinking that their liking could be nothing more than just a coincidence…

Sanky: I’ll take your leave then… I have some work…!!

He gets up to leave when Ap calls from behind…

Ap: You…!!
Sanky: (turns and smiles) You can call me Varun if you are not comfortable calling me Sanky… I know it’s a bit difficult for a mother…!!
Ap: So I’ll call you Varun when we will be alone… (Sanky nods his head) So Varun… Can you do me a favor…??
Sanky: Yes… What is it…??
Ap: As you heard that Mr. Sen Gupta is coming along with his son… So can you keep that Sahil away from Swara…!!
Sanky: Anything else that I should know…??
Ap: Nothing more… It’s just that I always find his actions very suspicious and I don’t like the way he behaves with Swara… I also think that he wants to marry her…!!
Sanky: Really…!! But I think it’s a good thing then… Swara will get a chance to start a life afresh…!!
Ap: After Shlok I also want the same… But not with Sahil…!!
Sanky: Okay… I understand… I’ll do as you say…!!
Ap: And yes… Just beware of him… He will try his level best to prove that you are not Shlok… But someone else…!!
Sanky: (nods his head) Okay…!!

————————————.

After almost half-an-hour Mr. Sen Gupta arrive along with Sahil… Sanky in his room at that time… Swara comes with the tray of snacks along with Ap… Sahil looks at her and gets furious on seeing her adorning herself like a married woman… Swara is wearing a yellow saree along with yellow and golden bangles… But what infuriates Sahil even more is that Swara is wearing her mangalsutra and her hairline is completely filled with sindoor… He glares at Swara and she ignores him… without even acknowledging the fact that he is sitting there… She keeps the trays on the table…

Ap excuses herself saying that she has got a headache and leaves for her room… Sahil gets happy seeing Ap leaving as she is the only one because of whom he never gets a chance to get close to Swara… little did he know that now there is someone else too…

Sahil smiles looking at Swara whereas she ignores him and goes to the kitchen… He gets irked seeing her ignoring him…

Sahil: I want some sugar…!!
Dp: Wait beta… Let me call Swara…!!
Sahil: No uncle… don’t call her… I can take it from her in the kitchen itself…!!
Dp: Are you sure…??

Sahil nods his head and goes towards the kitchen with the cup in his hand… He reaches the kitchen and finds Swara working there…

Sahil: (stands the doorstep and clears his throat) Umm… I want some sugar…!!
Swara: (with an emotionless face) Okay… you go… I’ll bring it there only…!!
Sahil: Why…?? Give it me here only…!!

Swara looks at him and Sahil gives a smirk…

Swara: I said naa go… I’ll bring it there only…!!
Sahil: (moves towards her) Oh come on Swara… When are you going to acknowledge that even I exist…??
Swara: (in an angry tone) Not in this life…!!
Sahil: (gives a small laugh) Hahhh… Really…!! Even after knowing how much I like you…!!
Swara: How dare you say that even after knowing that I’m already married…!!
Sahil: You are not married Swara… (holds her arm) You were married…!!
Swara: No…!! (she holds her head with both her hands as she gets some flashes)
Sahil: Yes… Shlok will never return… Don’t you remember…??
Swara: (stops crying as soon as she recalls about Sanky) He already has…!!
Sahil: What…??
Swara: I said Sanky is already back…!!
Sahil: Get out of your dreamland princess… He can never return…!! In case if you don’t remember then let me remind you that he is d…

“I think that’s enough…”, a voice interrupts him before he could complete…

Swara and Sahil turn towards the doorstep and the next instant the cup falls off from Sahil’s hand…

Sahil: (horror stricken) It’s… It’s… Impossible…!!

Episode ends…!!

Precap: Not decided… Sorry…!! 🙁 🙁
