Hi Friends, I’m back with another episode of my ff. Sorry for delaying it. Here’s the link of my previous episodes:

Recap: Om proposes Ishana.
Scene 1: Ishana after meeting Om, returns back to her home. She enters her room and sits on the couch.
Ishana’s sister Mona enters.
Mona(to Ishana): Why are you so tensed??
Ishana(disinterested): Nothing…you go from here.
Mona: Tell me what happened??
Ishana(furiously): I said na…nothing has happened…you just leave.
Mona: I’m seeing it from many days…you seem to be lost somewhere.
Ishana(furiously): Mona…don’t you understand?? I told you leave…so just leave me alone.
Mona(grinning); You are in love na???
Ishana(looks at Mona in shock): what??
Mona: I’m not a kid…I can see everything….you are in love with Om…What a big mistake you have done….The person you were conning, you fell in love with him only?? Now what will you do my dear sister ??
Ishana(furiously): Just shut up….u don’t have to get in all this…just leave me alone.
Mona: If you want to cry…then cry na??
Ishana(shouts in anger): what do you want?? Just leave me, okay.
Mona(getting scared): But….
Ishana(shouting): Leave I said !!! (Ishana finally bursts into tears)
Mona sits besides her.
Mona: Ishana…what happened to you??
Ishana(crying): I’ve done a very big mistake….In the greed of money, I agreed to work for Svetlana and con Om…..uh….but I can’t do all this now…..I can’t cheat him….I can’t tell you, how guilty I’m feeling right now….I… just…..U know….I never believed in love all these years, since childhood….but I can’t believe that I fell in love with Om…in just last few months….I don’t know what should I do now??
Mona: Just go and tell the truth to Om.
Ishana(crying): But it’s…
Mona: Ishana…don’t think so much…..don’t think about anything….I know that we are in need of money, but I can’t let my sister live in guilt for her whole life…and you know what…I’m pretty sure that Om will forgive you…Maybe he’ll get very angry at first…he may even shout at you….but he loves you too…so he’ll forgive you.
Ishana: You don’t know Om…For him, truth matters the most….He hates lies more than anything else… He’ll never forgive me…coz I’ve cheated him….betrayed him.
Mona: And now you will only go and tell him the complete truth
Ishana(looks at Mona and says): But…
Mona: Go and tell him the truth Ishana…..just go!!!
Ishana: How can I…just go and tell him the truth?? I’m really scared.
Mona: Okay, then….write a letter and tell him….
After some time …..
Scene 2: Ishana enters the Oberoi mansion. Shivaye sees her.
Shivaye: Oh… Ishana…you here?? How are you??
Ishana: Hi Shivaye…I’m good…I had something to tell him.
Shivaye(grinning): That you love him…right??
Ishana(tensed): uh…no actually…
Rudra enters the scene.
Rudra(grinning): Oh…. Ishana is here….or I should say…..Ishana bhabhi is here….Ishana, you don’t mind na if I call you bhabhi, coz I don’t mind…I know it sounds old fashioned and you may not like (Rudra gives a wide smile)
Ishana(gets annoyed and says in a rude tone): I just want to meet Om!!!
Shivaye(wondering what happened to Ishana): uh..okay…he’s in his room.
Rudra: I’ll go and call O.
Shivaye: No Rudra….Ishana, can go there.
Rudra(grinning): okay, I got it…we should give them some private space na…where no one can disturb them….great!!!
Shivaye: Rudra…just shut up!!! Ishana…you go.
Scene 3: Ishana enters Om’s room and sees him doing painting. Om doesn’t notices Ishana and continues doing his work. Ishana stands near the door and just looks at Om. O Saathiya music plays. Looking at Om, Ishana’s eyes get wet.
Ishana(thinking): I don’t know how will you react after knowing the truth…
Om turns back and looks at Ishana.
Om: Ishana….what a pleasant surprise?? What are you doing here.
Ishana(tensed): Om…I wanted to tell you something.
Ishana(giving a weak smile): uh…I have written a…letter for you…
Ishana: yeah…uh…a love letter…
Om(smiling): what?? Are you serious??
Om starts giggling.
Ishana: what happened??
Ishana: Om…plz just read this letter for once.
Om(confused): But what have you written in it??
Ishana: Don’t ask questions…just read it.
Om(suspicious): Ishana…Have you hidden something from me?? Have you told a lie to me??
Ishana(tensed): uh… Om…
Om(suspicious): Ishana…you know that I hate lies.
Ishana: But Om…
Om: Give me the letter.
Ishana( thinks for a second and then says): Om…what I’m going to tell you..it’ll change our lives forever
Om(tensed): Ishana…I hope you don’t break my heart….I hope you haven’t lied to me….coz, if you have….then our relationship will never be the same.
Ishana(thinking): After knowing the truth…our relationship will not exist in the first place Om.
Om: Give me the letter
Ishana: Om….plz…listen to me
Om(seething): Just give me the letter Ishana
Ishana: But Om…
Om(shouting): I said just give me the letter
( Ishana gets scared as she saw Om so angry….She hands over the letter to Om)
Ishana: Om..I can’t see you reading this letter in front of me. So I’m going outside.
Om just looks at Ishana and gets scared. He was panicked that what was actually written in the letter…He was scared of reading the letter…His hands were shivering. Letter was in his hands but he wasn’t able to open it….He kept on wondering that is written inside the letter but he was still not reading it…He didn’t had the guts to read it and neither Ishana had the guts to see Om reading the letter. Both were afraid of facing the harsh reality but they had to face it.
Om gathers courage and opens the letter. He starts reading the letter and when he ends it, his hands kept on shivering. The letter falls from his hands to the floor. Tears flow from Om’s eyes and he doesn’t even notice it. He goes in a shocked state. His mouth gets sealed and he wasn’t able to say anything.
What was written in the letter was:
“ Om….There is something I want to tell want to tell u….There is a secret which have always hided from you…I’m sorry Om, but have told a big lie to you…I know that you hate lies, but sometimes…these lies gives us so much happiness….even if it’s temporary…truth is bitter and it hurts…and sometimes, it even destroys our happiness…Now the truth that I’m going to tell you… will destroy our love forever. I didn’t had the guts to speak up the truth buy standing in front of you…so I’m writing this letter…..So here it is….
Everything about me..is a lie….my name isn’t Ishana Mehta…It’s Ishana Patel….I’m not a Psychologist…but a con-girl…Svetlana hired me to trap you in my love…She offered me 20 Crores to this work…and I agreed…in greed of course…I don’t know why Svetlana is doing all this, but one more fact you and your family don’t know is that she is the daughter of Mrs Kapoor and sister of Tia….…
Om…I can understand how you are feeling right now….coz I can feel the same…..this feeling can’t be described na?? I know that you are in pain, coz you are broke from inside…and I’m in pain coz of guilt.. …
I know what I did was wrong but I had no other option…I had to pay the debt of my dad to some goons…They threatened me that if I’ll not pay the debt then they will kill me and my family….I needed money in a short time….but I know…it was still wrong…there is no forgiveness for my sin….there is no forgiveness for any sin….
If you want…you can put me in jail…..I know I deserve it….I deserve much more worse…..I know that after reading this letter you will hate me…..and I deserve our hate too…but I just want to tell you that….that my love for you is no more fake…I’ve truly started loving you Om…..and that’s why I’m telling you the truth…You may not believe this….and I know that you will not believe this….but I just want you to tell you the truth….even if you think that it’s a lie.”
Ishana enters the room. Om looks at her with shock on his face and tears in his eyes. Om runs towards Ishana.
Om(holds Ishana by her shoulders and says): Ishana….uh….what was all that?? Ishana, you know I hate lies….what type of joke is this??
Ishana(bursting into tears): No Om…I’m actually saying truth after so many days…otherwise I’ve only lied till now…
Om(crying): No…I don’t believe all this…You are lying, I know….You all are playing a prank on me…right?? Who else are on this prank?? Shivaye, Rudra, Anika?? They must be standing outside (Saying this Om goes outside his room to see whether someone is standing outside. He sees no one and again turns to Ishana)
Om: I know…they must be hiding somewhere…why you guys are doing this?? Listen…I don’t like such type of jokes…so stop all this right now.
Ishana(crying): Om…plz listen to me….what I’ve written in the letter is complete truth
Om(shouts in anger): Ishana just stop it okay….I don’t believe all this.
Ishana(crying): You have to believe this Om…I’m a con-girl….I was working for Svetlana.
Om(furiously): Ishana… this is not a joke
Ishana(crying): I know Om..your life…your feelings are not a joke…But I’ve made a joke out of it….I’ve cheated you Om…I’ve betrayed you….And there is no forgiveness for my sins.
Om(holds Ishana by her shoulders tightly and speaks up in an emotionally choked voice): No Ishana…I know…you can’t do this..You can never do this…you are my Ishana…you are the one I fall in love with.
Ishana(crying): The Ishana that you fell in love with was a farce….The real Ishana is standing in front of you…and this Ishana is a liar, a cheater , a betrayer, a gold digger…a girl who can stoop to any level for money…a girl who destroys people’s lives….a girl who plays with the feelings of others, like I’ve played with yours.
Om(shouts in anger): Ishana!!!(Saying this Om raises his hands on Ishana to slap her but his stands sops in between and starts shivering…Ishana gets afraid)
To Be Continued….
Thanks for reading..plz comment and give your views. I was also writing an another ff based on OBros, titled Ishqbaaz OBros- Hum Saath Hain, Toh Baat Hain” which I wrote till Chapter 3. I’m really sorry but I can’t continue that ff due to lack of time. Also that ff isn’t getting enough comments so I don’t think it’s worth the time and effort to continue it. Sorry for that.
