Forgive me, Please – Episode 15
Sakshi went to office to take over her company. Press meet is organised to introduce her as heir of Arora Group of Companies. Reporters started interviewing her:
R: Madam, We want to ask something abt u. Do u like to b called as Sakshi Arora or Sakshi Randhir? You are the daughter of Arora who led the business world till now n wife of youth sensation Randhir. So wat would u prefer to b called as?
Sakshi: I am Sakshi Arora forever because without my parents I would not b here. I am proud to b Sakshi Randhir bcoz he is my inspiration who taught me the real essence of life. But I prefer to b called as Sakshi. Because today woman is independent. When we are fighting for empowerment I don’t think we should use father’s or husband’s name for popularity. We can lead our lives by our own. So call me Sakshi.
R: Madam, wat will b ur future strategy of ur company?
Sakshi: Establish norms which are labour frndly. Because without them no one can achieve success in their business.
R: Is ur husband going to help u in running ur company? Because u r new to this administration and he had experience.
Sakshi: Most probably he may advise me when required but as I know he won’t interfere with my work. He respects my individuality.
R:Thank u for giving ur time to us madam. Wish u all the best
Sakshi: Thank u
Its been 2 months n Sakshi became busy with works. Hardly Randhir is finding her at home.
Sakshi became busy with her works. I didn’t mean she is not taking care of me. She is checking whether I am having food on time or not n hw I am. But I miss her. Because she is going to office before I wake up keeping everything ready for me. Evng I don’t know when she came but everything will b ready for me again but she will b back to her company by the time I return. She returns home when I sleep. I am missing her love. Now I am realising that I still love her. I decided to apologise her. She reached home at 1 am. I acted as I am asleep.
I heard her asking maid abt my dinner. Then she came to me. She caressed my hairs kissed me on forehead.
“I love u Randhir. But I want u to b happy. If u see me u will lose ur coolness n will b angry. I don’t want that. Thats y I am avoiding myself from u. Till u forgive me I will wait. Good nite Randhir.”
She went to washroom n came aft fresh up.
” Madam, ur dinner?”
“I am not hungry. Its ok. U go”.
She slept besides me. She turned another side but I can understand she is weeping. She slept aft sometime. She woke up early in the morning. She rubbed both her eyes n opened eyes slowly. She is so beautiful like a kid. Yes she is a kid. Its me who didn’t understand that. She is not bad. Circumstances made her bad. I should have understood her. I want to talk to her but didn’t know how to start.
“Coffee. Good morning Sakshi.”
Sakshi got up at once looking me.
“Are u busy today. I need to talk to u”.
“No I mean I am free. Tell me”
“Go n get ready. We will go out”
She is selecting dress to wear. Till now she is wearing only dresses which I told her to wear covering from neck to toe. But I can understand she like to wear sarees.
“Wear this sari. U will look awesome.”
“Yes. Don’t u like wearing sari?”
“I love to wear sari. I will get ready within 5 mins”
She got ready. She is looking like an angel. She is my Sakshi. Now I am not angry on her. I want to see her happy. Today I will confess my love to her. Her phone rang.
“Hello. Oh actually I will b late today. U pls manage it.”
“Oh no. ok I am coming”
She disconnected the call n looked me.
“I..I need to go. Something important”
Am I not important to her? I didn’t ask her. But I am unhappy.
“I am sorry. Actually it is for….”
“No need to say. U can go”
She went to her office n evng she came earlier than me. As I returned home,she smiled n came to me.
He wants to take me on a date but my bad luck I have some important meeting. I am planning to provide housing to workers n schooling to their children at free of cost. My company is going to adopt meritorious orphan students n bare all the expenditure food, clothing n education. Board of Directors meeting is held regarding this today. So I am helpless. I attended the meeting n they accepted my suggestions. I am so happy.
Now its time to convince Randhir. He may b angry on me for cancelling date. I returned home soon after meeting. I prepared his favourite dishes for dinner. I called him but he ignored my calls. Whenever he wants to talk lovingly to me, something will happen from my side n his anger increases further. I hope he will understand the reason if I explain. I didn’t want to see his anger again.
He returned home.
I returned home n she is waiting for me. Through smell I can guess she prepared my favourite dishes to convince me as she cancelled the date today. But today I am not angry on her because I understood something is really important for her to go. Especially I saw regret in her eyes for cancelling the program. But I decided to act to b angry on her.
As I went she took files from my hands. I went to room without talking to her. She came with water n gave it to me. I took it but didn’t look her.
“I..I am sorry Randhir. I know I disappointed u.”
I didn’t talk to her n went to get fresh up. She is trying to talk to me but I avoided. She finally gave up n went to hall. She came to call me for dinner.
“Pls come for dinner. I myself prepared all ur favourite dishes”
“I am not hungry”
“Please I am sorry”
“I said I didn’t want dinner”
“Ok tell me wat should I do to make u hav ur dinner?”
“U will b punished for disappointing me by cancelling the program”
“Punishment again? Ok tell me wat should I do?”
“U must work at home again as before for one month”
“Ok. I will do it. U pls hav dinner. ”
I went near to her seriously. She is moving back n hitted wall n I locked her with my hands. I slowly kissed her on cheeks. She is blushing n looking down. I raised her face by chin.
“You no need to do anything except loving me. Can u love me forever forgiving me for hurting n insulting u many times?”
She looked me with tears in her eyes.
When he said I have to do all the works for one month, I am really scared. He came near to me seriously. I thought he will hurt me as he is angry. But he kissed me. Then he said
“You no need to do anything except loving me. Can u love me forever forgiving me for hurting n insulting u many times?”
I got shocked. I saw tears in his eyes. I hugged him tightly crying to let go off all the pain I am baring in my heart till now. He wiped my tears.
“Tell me Sakshi,Can u forgive me?”
“Randhir, pls don’t say that. I know u got hurted a lot coz of me. U showed ur pain in the form of anger. If u forgive me, thats enough for me”
“I forgave u. I won’t hurt u anymore. I love you”
“I love you too”
We both had dinner n lied on bed. I am working on laptop. Randhir looked for sometime n closed my laptop.
“What are u doing”
“No office work at home from today.”
“Then wat should I do at home”
“Just love ur husband n pls spend sometime with him. He is missing u so much”
I smiled n hugged him. Slowly we both slept. At morning I woke him up n both got ready. He dropped me at office n went to his office. Its one month and Randhir didn’t hurt me n infact he is showing only love on me. One day I am discussing abt the new projects which we want to launch with Ajay as he is a 2nd major shareholder of my company. Attender came n said someone came for me.
” Tell him to wait for sometime” I said n resumed talk with Ajay.
Aft 30 mins we finalised few contracts n told attender to send the person who came for me. He knocked the door n came in. Its Randhir.
“Randhir, is it u? Y didn’t u say it’s u? I am sorry for making u to wait.”
I am a bit afraid coz Ajay is in my chamber n I made Randhir to wait for 30 mins talking to him.
“Shall I sit?”
He sat n Ajay thought to go.
“I didn’t come as ur husband, I came on professional work. Ajay u too need to stay”
Ajay sat n we r looking him. He proposed some project asking that if we like we can join n he left.Evng I returned home n found him came before me.
“I want to talk to u Sakshi”
I expected n already I prepared mentally to bare his anger n harsh words. May b he may torture ne again, I didn’t understand y it happens always to me. I slowly accompanied him to room. We both sat on bed n he hold my hands.
“I want u to take rest for few months. Now its 7 th month for u. Please take rest till ur delivery. U r so stressed all these months.I want u to b stress free n happy. I will keep my office work aside for u for few months.”
“Ok but who will tc of company till then?”
“I already talked with uncle. He will tc. If anything important u can go”
“Randhir, Really sorry for making u to wait at morning. Ajay came to discuss a project.”
“Its ok. No prblm. Actually I told to attender not to say my name. I know if I say u will call me immediately. I don’t want ur work to get disturbed. I am not jealous on Ajay now. So don’t worry. But our relationship gets fine only wen u says the whole truth to me. Y did u refuse to marry Ajay? I didn’t want any secrets between us”
“Ok I will answer. But first tell me How did u lose ur property?”
“Everyone knows that. I launched a product n its a failure. So I lost everything.”
“If u didn’t want secrets between us then first u tell me the truth”
“So as u came to know the truth u refused to marry him,right?”
Few things better to b left for others understanding than explaining the truth.
“May b u r right”
“Its ok. Though it saddens me a bit, I want to forget the past. Actually I really want u refusing Ajay for me n my love without knowing that I left my property to save u from the case”
I looked him with no emotions. He came to me n kissed my forehead.
“Ok leave everything. Lets b happy. Lets start new life with love, only love. Ur old Randhir is back to u just to love u forever unconditionally. I promise from now there will b no tears in ur eyes. Even if tears come it will b only coz of extreme hpyness. Pls smile once.”
I smiled n he kissed me on lips making me blush. Next day my parents came to take me to home for delivery as per tradition. But really I didn’t want to go because only from few days Randhir is loving me. I don’t want to miss it.
“Randhir, we will take Sakshi to home for delivery. She will stay 3 months with us. Is it ok for u?”
Dad asked him n he is looking me. I didn’t say anything.
” Uncle, I respect traditions but sorry. I am not sending Sakshi to ur home. I will tc of her. Pls don’t mind uncle.”
Dad n mom didn’t say anything as he said his decision strictly. Later I am talking with mom in garden n I heard dad talking to Randhir.
” Randhir, r u not sending her with love or to suffer her? I know Sakshi did a mistake but she changed a lot. Now she is carrying ur baby in her womb. Pls don’t hurt her.”
” Uncle, I am sending her bcoz she didn’t want to come. I too didn’t want to miss her. I know I am so rude to her till now. So now by taking care on her I want to rectify my mistake. Don’t worry. I won’t hurt her n from now she will b my angel.”
Dad smiled. Aft sometime they left. I am njoying cool breeze in balcony. Randhir came n hugged me from behind.
” Whats up angel?”
“Njoying cool breeze”
“Y don’t u want to go to ur maternal home? R u still uncomfortable with them?”
“No. Nothing like dat. I just want to stay with u.”
“Thats ok. U no need to go anywhere. I am there with u. I will remove ur loneliness too.”
“Randhir shall we go orphanage once? I am missing children.”
“Sure. Tomorrow we shall go. Even they r missing u. ”
“Randhir,shall I ask u something?”
“Yes tell me my dear swt wife”
“Are u really loving me or just loving me for our baby?”
He turned me towards him.
“I love you. I am not caring only for our baby. I am caring bcoz I love u so much”
I immediately hugged him. He too hugged me.
Next day I woke up n saw him sleeping. I kissed him n he woke up. He is getting ready.
“Please wear these clothes” I gave him new suit to wear. He looked me surprisingly
“Is anything special today?”
“Ya but for me”
He looked me n I just smiled. He wore the dress which I gave. I gave him new watch n new shoes too. He got ready.
“Happy Birthday Randhir”
“Birthday??? Mine? How do u know?”
I didn’t say anything.
“Did u know my past?”
He is angry again. I thought to make him happy but I think I ruined the day. He hold my wrist tightly.
“Randhir pls its paining”
“Who told u to enquiry abt me?? Tell me dammit.”
He shouted on me tightening his grip. My eyes filled with tears. He loosened his grip n left me. He sat on bed. I want to go n hug him to comfort him but scared
“I am sorry Sakshi. Pls come here”
I went to him n hugged him.
“Its ok. Pls don’t cry. U r not responsible for ur parents death. Pls control urself”
He slept in my lap. Aft sometime he became normal.
“I am sorry. I didn’t mean to hurt u but I didn’t want to celebrate my bday”
“Randhir, I am not forcing u but ur bday is spl to me. I will b happy if u agree to celebrate. ”
“Will u b really happy if I say yes?”
“Ok do as u wish”
I smiled n arranged party for him. I called everyone in his circle. I called orphanage children to attend party coz I am sure Randhir will b hpy seeing them n I too miss them. Party started n ppl are dancing. I took a drink, its actually soft drink but I pretended it as wine to see Randhir’s reaction. I am abt to take a sip but I felt someone’s hands on my waist from back. I am sure its obviously my Randhir. I turned n yes I am right. He took me close n whispered in my ears.
“What r u doing?”
“I already told u I didn’t like u having alcohol. Now keep that glass away.”
“But I love drinking. I am habituated to it from many yrs”
“I will take u for outing tomorrow. Leave it now. I will spend my whole day with u. Ok?”
“I am going to drink”
I took a sip n he really became angry. He left me n went from there. If I didn’t show him that its just cool drink now then I have to face consequences later. I went to him n smiled. He noticed me but ignored.
“I am sorry. Its just cool drink. How do u think I will drink again aft promising u?? I quit it 2 yrs back itself. He smiled. I made him to drink it proving its just a cool drink.
“So u r testing me. I will show u the result of this my dear tonight.”
I smiled bcoz I know he is not serious. Party finished n Randhir is in balcony. I went n hugged him from back. He broke the hug n looked me
“I need to go to London for 2 months for launching my company there”
“Oh. When u need to start?”
I didn’t like him going now because I want to spend my whole time with him for 2 months till my delivery.But I can’t say anything. I shouldn’t hinder his development.
“Ok. I will pack ur luggage”
I went from there to avoid my tears.
I told her that I need to go to London to launch my company. She immediately went from there to pack my luggage to hide her tears from me which I already noticed. I went to her n she is taking clothes from wardrobe. I turned her towards me.
” I said I need to go but not I am going”
She looked me confused.
I wiped her tears.
“I am not going Sakshi. I know u need me these 2 months. I can’t leave u in this stage.”
I hugged her.
“But its ur dream na”
She said innocently. How can I tell her that no drm or success equals her. She is the only one who is so important for me. I can give up everything including my life for her.
“Yes but nothing is as important as you are. I can’t leave u at this moment wen u need me the most.”
“But u need to struggle a lot for this opportunity again. Its ok u go. Mon n dad will tc of me.”
“I can’t go. Even if I go my thoughts will revolve around u. So I will start the work aft ur delivery.”
She is abt to say something but I kissed her to stop.
“Today I am so happy. I am happy that u understood true priority of life”.
“I didn’t get u”
“I saw u feeding children like mom with love. U r viewing everyone as equal irrespective of their status. I am really surprised that are u the same Sakshi whom I know in the past”
She hugged me.
“No. I am not that past Sakshi. I am ur Sakshi who learnt to share love to ppl around me from u”
“But I am really so rude n insulted u so much infront of others. I am sorry Sakshi. I wouldn’t have done that to u. I am wrong.”
“Its ok. I already forgot everything.”
“I came to know y u cancelled ur marriage with Ajay. I heard ur conversation with Ajay today in the party n later on I asked him to tell the truth. He said everything”.
She got shocked n is going away from me. But I pulled her more closer to me n kissed her. Now I am really happy bcoz she loves me truly. But guilty too coz I suffered her a lot without knowing the truth. I didn’t understand y she didn’t said truth to me.Watever now I love her more than before. I won’t let her go anytime n will keep her happy forever.
