Karan’s eyes are glued on the girl standing in front of him. Though he was angry at her but no moment passed when he forgot the face.
Preeta : hi karan (smiles at him)
Karan : what are you doing here right now? I told you there is nothing between us
Preeta runs to him and hugs from back clutching his jacket sobbing. Her tears does not stop flowing from eyes but coming from her heart.
“Karan I am sorry, you can give me whatever punishment you want but your silence kills me more than anything” she says in broken words
Karan turns around holding her face tightly consoling her pain.
Preeta : you told me every single time but you were right I am biggest dumbo (clutches his collar while talking)
Karan only sees the pain in her eyes and guilt stricken for not trusting him. He quickly notices bandage on her wrist she tries to cover
Karan : show me, how did this happen
Preeta : Karan actually (stammer)
“I am asking you something what did you do” Karan shakes her shoulder angrily
Preeta : punishing myself for not trusting you (touches his one side face)
The ground slips from his feet knowing how big step Preeta took.
Karan : are you crazy? you were killing yourself for that worthless creature who don’t deserve you even a bit (rages on her)
Preeta : I am not that stupid to kill myself for a cheater, this is my punishment and now its your turn to punish me (bends on her knees)
“Promise me you will never in dream think of doing this, if this comes in your mind, you will lose me forever” puts her hand on his head
Preeta : I am sorry Karan (hugs him)
“Baby doll listen to me, you were not at fault, only problem you are very naive, don’t be so good that world take advantage of your innocence” Karan gently wipes her tears but also get emotional
Preeta : I will go and tell everybody right now, we will not let them succeed
Karan : its of no use (stops her)
Preeta : what? why won’t they believe me
“See again you are being innocent, last time you tried remember when I was in jail what happened, that cunning girl put you down and now there are two of them, that creep will make you more guilt” Karan makes her sit
Preeta : then what we will do? if I had listened to you before things would have not gone worst
