Beach.. – Night..
Anjali & Arnav were walking bare footed on the shore.. They always loved it here at night.. A calm sea sky full of stars.. Complete silence..
Anjali : why you didn’t take kushi.. Firse jagada kiya..? ( again fought..?)
Arnav : I’ll talk to her later..
Anjali just nod & they keeping walking silently for another 10 mins.. This was their weekly routine.m every week all 3 ( arshi & Anjali) came here & walked & talked together..
Arnav : Di..
Anjali : hmm..
Arnav : are you fine..
That question drew her out of that little peace she had just found in her brother’s company but she suppressed her inner turmoil & looked at him with a smile..
Anjali : of course I’m.. & would be better if all of you stop those marriage talks..
Arnav : I’ll make sure no one talks about it
Anjali was surprised.. He agreed.. She didn’t expect that.. Wasn’t he was the one who started this with nani
Arnav : but you’ve to tell me what’s bothering you
She understood he had noticed those changes in her which she tried hard to suppress..
Anjali : I was just worried about this marriage stuff nothing more
Arnav stopped & looked into her eyes..
Arnav : do you want me to believe that this marriage stuff is bothering you to this extent that you’ve almost lost 5kgs, you’ve started inappropriate & inadequate diet, ( pointing at her eyes) these pale dark circles due to lack of sleep & this.. Fiddling with your hairs ( she was doing that now) it damages your hair di & you know how much l like your hair.. So tell me
Anjali : its nothing..
Arnav : don’t test my patience di.. Kushi has done that enough today.. You already look worried I don’t want to yell at you now
Though his voice was calm & controlled his face revealed how his anger was rising inside.. He hated it when both his angels lie..
Arnav : you weren’t in Delhi last month as you informed me.. So where were you & what has that got with your behaviour di
Anjali : you spy on me chote
Arnav gave her irritated look.. A second more delay from her.. He would burst out on her.. She can’t let that happen.. They both were equally scared of each other’s anger.
Anjali : I was in Goa.. My friend.. Huh.. He passed away last month..
A tear escaped from her eyes. She wiped it & brought a huge smile on her face..
Arnav : di..
Anjali : no chote.. I won’t cry.. He gave a promise not to..
Arnav : are you fine di..?
Anjali : No I’m not he cheated me chote.. How could he just leave me here.. ( she look up at the sky) you’re cheater.. Liar.. I won’t talk to you..
Tears were rolling down her eyes but still that smile didn’t vanish. Thunder strikes..
Anjali : what..? I broke the promise..? No I’m not crying its just some dust went in there.. See I’m smiling.. But how can you break your promise & leave me..
Tears well up in Arnav’s eyes.. He never saw her so disturbed & vulnerable not even when her marriage broke.. She was broken yet wanted to pretend she was strong..
Anjali : look chote he.. ( Arnav hug her.. & she fell unconscious.. )
Precap : Arnav throw vase on floor Anjali & kushi gasp..
Anjali : chote.. Hum.. Woh..
Arnav : shut up.. ( kushi & Anjali shiver seeing his anger..)
Pragya : arnav calm down.. We need to talk & solve it..
Arnav : speak up you two.. ( kushi anjali) I’m not tolerating one more lie.. ( he roar)
