Hey guys…back with another update. Enjoy reading and do leave your feedback. Link for the previous epi: Episode 26
It had been a few days after that incident with Karan. I had woken up but was just lying on the bed… laziness had still not left me. I was just thinking about him when I heard a knock on the door. I dragged my feet up to the door and opened it. Shauraya came in and I lazily dropped myself on the bed, grabbing a pillow and pretending to sleep.
‘Have you heard the news?’
I opened my eyes hearing his worried voice. ‘Now what new problem is coming,’ I thought as I shook my head in a no. I followed him till the living room downstairs and switched on the news channel.
“Will the two business tycoons- Mr. Himanshoo and Mr. Karanvir Bohrab join their hands after this alliance?” One of the reporter was saying this line as I read the breaking news. ‘Why the hell do I get to know everything in the form of breaking news?’ I shouted and moved my arms in a fit of rage. It hit the vase kept on the nearby table and it broke. I stormed off to my room and held my head in my hands. I was just unable to believe. Was it actually happening? Karan’s mama and my dad had fixed our alliance and we were about to get engaged in a week.
I was just clueless about dad’s agenda in getting Sweety engaged to KVB. I was thinking about him only and dad entered along with mom. Before I could question him, he handed over a photo to me. I looked at the pic. It was of Naina, my childhood friend. Before I could figure out anything, dad said, ‘I’m planning to get you both married.’
‘But my opinion?’ I voiced my concern.
‘Your opinion doesn’t matter. It is your sister’s opinion that matters to you. I know if she’ll agree than you’ll also agree and vice- versa. So it’s better if you take her opinion.’
I turned to look the way dad was looking. I saw Sweety standing behind. It seemed that she was angry. ‘You all can do whatever the hell you want to but stop interfering in my life dad. I won’t do any engagement.’ She went back to her room after saying this.
‘This is all because of your love. Is this the way to talk to your parents?’ Dad pointed his finger towards me and I lowered my gaze.
I don’t know why everything was being rushed up on. It was only in the morning that dad had announced bhai’s wedding and here, in the evening, we were gathered for his engagement. There were only few people. I walked up to dad and apologized to him for my behaviour as bhai wanted me to do. I tried talking to him softly as I said, ‘Please dad. I’m not ready. I can’t do this engagement.’ If anyone would have noticed me talking sweetly then they would have surely got diabetes.
‘Everyone has got to know about it and I cannot back off. So, you need to do as I say,’ dad replied.
See, that’s why I don’t talk sweetly. No one gets my point. I moved back and joined Shauraya. Soon, Naina arrived with her parents. Well, Naina was also my friend and I pretty well knew her. I guess that was the reason that I was not hysterical after listing that bhai is getting married. Naina also was very well aware of our bonding and I felt so much secure that she would never try to take my position in bhai’s life. They soon exchanged rings and I slowly clapped, if not too happy than neither sad about this alliance. Yea!! But I was super upset about my alliance.
