Swara kept acting her part as almost all her department showed up for a nice dessert at thenearby restaurant, all wished her well and empathized with her. Ram kept looking at her as if he could tell that she was deeply saddened. But he didn’t know the real reason behind her reluctant behavior and obviously fake smiles.
As soon as swara reached her apartment, Don was exiting the bedroom, his hair all ruffled and his eyes still swollen. He seemed to have just woken up upon hearing the entrance door.She had never even seen how he looked like when he woke up before, so her heart pounded but she tried to keep that aside. She threw her purse on the counter angrily
Don immediately turned very serious as he saw how disturbed she was
Swara:You’re asking me?
he frowned and crossed his arms over his bare chest She took a long pause
Swara:Were you even really sleeping till I came?
He squinted at her
Don:What’s this all about, Swara?
She said between her teeth and picked the file from her purse, then slammed it across his chest whilst passing by him angrily Don looked through the files and then came to the bedroom to find her sitting on the edge of the bed, resting her head in her palms
Don:Swara, I’m going to ask you again
he said gravely
Don:What is this about?
She raised her head and looked at him, tears were flooding her eyes but she was still angry
Swara:How could you?
He frowned even deeper and got closer
Don:How could I what? swara you’re being incoherent
Swara:You know damn well what I’m talking about!
Swara:How can you be so condescending!
Don:Would you calm down and tell me what it is you’re trying to say, already?
he raised his voice at her, which was probably the first time he did so, or so she remembered. She just froze staring at him
he took a deep breath and closed his eyes for a moment to compose himself
Don:You’re been hysteric. If there’s something you’re accusing me of, I’d like to know what it is
Swara:Does Arjun ring a bell?
Don:Your co-worker. What about him?
Swara:What about him?! What about the fact that he mysteriously went missing today. He never takes leave from work, much less not show up without informing anyone! Both Ram and I tried reaching him, and he’s nowhere to be found! How’s that?
she stood up and walked past by him again and into the kitchen where she opened the bar cabinet and took out a bottle of brandy
Don:What are you doing?
She poured herself a full crystal glass
Swara:What does it look like?
Don:You don’t drink
she stated then drank it all up Don walked towards her furiously and grabbed the glass out of her hand
Don:What are you trying to do? You’re a mess as it is
Swara:I’m trying to take a break from all this drama
she said pulling the glass back but when he wouldn’t let it go, she grabbed another and filled it up
Don:Do you want your neighbor coming to witness another broken vase?
he said angrily grabbing the bottle out of her hand
She managed to drink up the second glass as well and grim acedat its bitterness. Then she pointed her finger at him
Swara:You tell me the truth, you hear me? I want the truth!
He squinted his eyes and she added
Swara:Did you or did you not kill Arjun?
Don:What do you think?
Swara:I think you did
Don:Right now I wish I did
he finally replied and then drank right from the bottle
Don:You know what?
Don:Let’s both get drunk. And screw it all up. Yea, let’s do that!
he drank from it again the poured she another glass himself
Don:Drink up darling, tonight we’re getting wasted. You can mourn the supposed death of your beloved co-worker and I can celebrate by myself the fact that I am finally a free man! Come on, come on, drinkup!
he said pushing her glass up to her mouth She pushed the glass aside
Don:Nono, drink up sweetheart.I want you to keep telling me what you think sincerely! So I killed him, didn’t I?What else did I do? Huh?
She kept pushing the glass away and he kept shoving it towards her till it slipped between their hands and broke to pieces. Immediately swara started crying again. Don began drinking out of the bottle again and just then, someone rang the bell to her apartment
Don:Oh! Your neighboris right on time, asusual!
Don chuckled Swara began wiping her tears away and headed towards the door. She was about to unlock the door when she thought to look through the peephole first .She stepped away from the door immediately and turned to Don, mouthing
How was the chapter hope u all get it answer. Don’t worry even I hate this Arjun. I’ll teach him a Good lesson I mean Don will. Once again thanx for appreciation. I’m really happy.
