The Fallout !!
Half an hour later they reached the mansion and Karthik pushed himself out of the car and stomped his feet as he walked towards the door. When they reached inside the hall Naira caught hold of his hand.
“What is wrong with you ?!!” She asked.
He suddenly pulled away from her and just stared at her without saying a word.
“What has happened ?!! Why are you like this suddenly ?!!” Naira asked again, when she got no response from him.
Naira stared up into his eyes defiantly even though there were tears in her eyes. She didn’t know why he had drawn himself away from her, but she surely didn’t like this distance between them.
“How do you know Rithvik Oberoi ?!!” He asked in a low voice.
“He is my childhood friend. We have grown up together.” Naira answered wondering what this has to do with his foul mood.
“When were you going to tell me that you were in love with him and were going to marry him !!” He asked angrily while his eyes flashed.
“What ?!! Who told you this ?!!” She asked, completely shocked. It was so not true. She and Rithvik were just childhood friends and nothing more. Infact, she was completely shocked when she saw him in the event today. She had meet him after a lot of years.
Where did love and marriage with Rithvik come from ?!! There was nothing as of such !!
“Doesn’t matter who, What matters is that you didn’t even bother to, even though we have been living together for quite a while now.” He thundered back instantly.
“But there was nothing.” She snapped.
His jaw hardened and he glared down into her eyes.
“Really now. So please enlighten me, why were you clinging to him and laughing at all his talks ?!! Why were you so comfortable when he hugged you. When you just run away from me whenever I try to come close to you ?!!” He growled down.
“The issue over here is not whether I was in love with Rithvik, The question is whether you trust me or not ?!!” She said acidly in mock.
His brown eyes blazed and his face turned thunderous.
“If you want an answer. Then it’s a NO. I don’t trust you.” He cut her with his words in a harsh slash.
Hot tears fell down her eyes and slid over her cold cheeks. She broke down crying.
“I was foolish enough to believe that this marriage would ever work out. But when you don’t even trust me then what’s left in this relationship ?!! I was stupid to have a hope with you.” She struggled with the tears and hoarse voice.
She saw his throat working up and down and he took a step towards her while his eyes softened suddenly. Naira moved back. She rubbed her cheeks with the back of her hand while.
“You know what.” She said in a cold voice.
”You.” She pointed at him, while a tear rolled down her right eye and she looked around.
”This house.” She gestured her hands at her surrounding.
”And this piece of rich thing.” She said pointing her finger at the peacock pendant that he had gifted her. Which was hanging from her neck.
“Can go to hell !!” She snapped crying hard, and threw the jewellery right across the floor.
Karthik’s back straightened and he stiffened. He looked at the stream of tears falling down her cheeks and also at the pain filling in her eyes. He gulped hard while he saw her break down in front of his eyes. His throat started to close up and his eyes started to burn as well.
She turned and ran towards her room. Naira sat over the bed and she started to cry afresh. She put her hand over her forehead and shook her head while tears streamed down her cheeks.
She was foolish enough to have a hope for someone who was out of her league. She didn’t know that it would hurt like this. Her heart was breaking into million pieces. Her mumma had always told her that trust was the base of every relationship. But then he never trusted her. He had earlier as well accused her of betraying him which had led to their contract marriage.
Fresh tears filled her eyes. She would never come up to his level. He had a different life style. She couldn’t measure up to him. He was successful. He was too handsome. He was everything that she couldn’t ever have. It was clear she would never be part of his life.
It was humiliating and an insult. She felt a fool for always smiling and laughing in his company while he never saw her like how she saw him. She wasn’t going to be his wife ever. She should remember her place. She cried herself to sleep that night.
She had never felt so lonely. Never felt so unwanted. Never felt so unloved. It was the worst feeling in the world and hot tears flowed down her face again.
Karthik walked back to his room feeling empty as hell. He sagged down on the bed and put his hand over his face and closed his eyes. Her face came into his vision. It was burned his brain now. She didn’t love him, and he was just not able to register this fact in his heart.
He showered and changed into a grey t-shirt and track pants and slid down on the bed. He couldn’t close his eyes because he was afraid of the image of her crying coming into his eyes again.
He got a call and he growled low in his throat displeased.
“What is it ?!!” Karthik bit out angrily.
“Sir, the land has been transferred under you name. Also the divorce papers that you wanted are ready, will send them to the mansion tomorrow morning.” Swayam replied.
Karthik sighed and closed his eyes. He had momentarily forgotten about the land and the divorce because of his love for her. Sure he was angry at her. But did he want to divorce her ?!!
Well this would be her test, He thought. If she loves him, she would never sign them and leave him. If she does sign on them, he had made a complete fool out of himself and there never was any love from her side. He concluded his thoughts.
“Send them to the mansion.” Karthik said into the phone.
“Sure sir.” Swayam answered.
He hanged up on the phone and looked towards the ceiling. So tomorrow would be the decision day. Time for him to know if she ever loved him or not.
