She kept on looking through her window.Seeing the heavy rain with the bolt of lightning and thunder at night gave her a rewind to her olden days..more precisely..the night that she saw him.
A long 10 years back..
When she was enjoying her sweet 17&awaiting for the college to start.
It was summer..she just finished her XII th grade scoring good. Her whole family was celebrating.Her family..Swara sighed at the memory of her family..A father who loved his both daughters equally..even when he slept with empty belly..he worked hard and didn’t let them knew what is hunger.He was just an ordinary clerk..but for Swara he was her superman.Her elder sis Ragini was a mommy’s girl.Her mom..who worked as a caretaker in a kindergarden. Ragini was 20 at that time. She was in her final year of college.Their family was a simple and happy-go-lucky family.A husband and wife…A epitome of pure love..and their 2 daughters..who only saw innocense and happiness in everything. That rainy night changed the fate..
When the clouds blackened and hid the moon..Swara thought that the nature is celebrating her victory. She wanted to drench in rain..the smell of fresh drops touching the dry earth was intimidating.She got out and sat in the garden..the rain drops kissed her everywhere.She sat there untill her sis found her.She came with an umbrella..but soon the wind blew..making the umbrella flinch and it flew away from Rags. Swara laughed..Then Rags too joined in enjoying the rain.They both danced..laughed.. But it didn’t last long.. Suddenly 2 Jeeps rushed in their home’s front lawn.It was him..the terror..the don of the town..RAJAT..
He looked Rags lustily..her curves were visible through her dress..then at Swara who hid behind her sister frightned.His 2 men went inside and dragged her dad n mom out.He was clear..he wanted Ragini,Otherwise he will kill everyone.Like every dad n mom,their parents too fought for their daughter’s dignity.BUT..2 bullets was enough for Rajat to make them silent.Then he aimed his gun at Swara..both the girls were scared..shattered..and numb.They only heard Rajat’s laughter.But Ragini took a drastic step..She gave herself to save her sis..the only remaining family. But Rajat wanted Swara too..He was a blo*dy f**kard.. Ragini was not a girl who gave up..She gained some courage and ran holding her sis’s hand. She knew Rajat won’t harm her because he wanted her. It was still raining..thats when Swara knew the nature was not celebrating..it was signalling them the upcoming danger.Rajat’s men chased them and caught hold of Ragini’s right hand..Ragini tried hard to let her go..but when she understood there’s no escape..she pushed Swara from her left hand and asked her to run.Unwillingly she heard her sister..but she didn’t wanted Rajat to ruin her Sister.She knocked every door for help..but hearing the name ‘Rajat’ they slapped their door at her face.She was devastated..but didn’t accept failure.She ran like mad..and she got nearly hit by a car..thank god he was a good driver..he pushed break without touching her.
He..the most handsome and a rich boy of 20..The great Sanskar from the city..got out of the car..he wanted to yell at her,But in the light of his car’s light..he saw blood coming from her head..torn dress..and the soul less face. She fell in his feet..muttering.”save my sister”
He made her stand up..and he saw her eyes..the round,big brownish eyes…He knew the rain was a signal..but now he realised that it meant ‘LOVE’…He asked and she told him everything..the worst night of her life. He made her sit in the car and drove. He called his cousin.. The IPS officer Laksh. He knew Laksh was the only one who can help them.They went to his house.Laksh was already waiting and he already knew where Rajat was. Laksh was waiting 4 an opportunity to catch Rajat… Then they 3 got into Laksh’s car and fastly drove to Rajat’s hide out.. For Laksh the rain was symbol of revenge and victory.

5 year old Swayom woke up from his sleep..looked at his mother Swara.. Her husband the charming man who was sleeping woke up from his sleep and saw his wife standing near the window..
He knew what was going on her mind.He raised from the bed and walked near her..he put his hands on her waist..hugging her and said in her ear..
‘My doctor wifey..that night won’t repeat..’ she smiled..and replied..’i know..i was just thinking what this rain means..’ he answered. ‘Our love’,and kissed her neck.she blushed. “Mr.sanskar..swayom is here!” the little Swayom chuckled..the couple went to bed..and slept peacefully..
The rain was sure celebrating their love.10 years back..The rain at the worst night of Swara’s life..meant manythings for many people..but for Rajat..it meant destruction..he was shot dead by Laksh.Ragini was saved from the clutches of evil Rajat..Now she is leading a peaceful life as Laksh’s wife..a teacher,mother of 2.
AND ITS ALWAYS HAPPILY EVER AFTER……
