Rikara – Trust Part 2

I posted Chapter 1 in Dil Bole Oberoi, but now with the merger, it makes sense for it to in this forums. I will repost Chapter 1 and also include Chapter 2 as well.

Chapter 1

Scene: Omkara finds about Gauri’s fake pregnancy and Bua Ma goes to the mental hospital.

G: Omkaraji, I am extremely sorry… I never meant to lie to you but every single time, I tried to tell you the truth, I was scared that you will kick me out. Without knowing the truth behind Bua Ma, your life will in danger.

O: Gauri, please… I understand your rationale but I cannot forgive you. Pregnancy and having a baby is a major part of an individual’s life. I wanted this baby. I wanted to be…

G: (With tears following into my eyes) Omkaraji, I am sorry.

O: PLEASE, please do not interrupt me. I need to speak. I am just so tired bottling up my feelings and crying in the inside. I need to express myself. I wanted to be a great parent, a parent that shield their child from harm, supports them and becomes a friend. A parent that I never had…

(Jahnvi, Dadi and Gauri looks at him crying, understanding his pain)

O: Let me show you something (O takes them to his studio and opens a closet). I decided that if it was a guy, his name would be Arjun and if it was a girl, her name would be Kiara. I had so many dreams that I wanted to share with the baby… and YOU.

(Gauri looks up at him, tears rolling down her cheek)

This is a picture of the baby with their first tooth. This here is me teaching my kid how to ride a bike. And this is here a family picture of MY child’s first birthday. I had all these dreams and all were crushed because of a stupid lie. Just leave me alone! I need some time to think.

G: You need someone to be with you at this time. Omkaraji, please at least let Dadi and me stay with you.

O: First you lie and twist the lie into a major problem. And then you come back, saying to forgive me. Am I some saint to always forgive your mistakes? First, it was Ishana, Riddhima and now you. Why do these s**ts always play with my life? Why cannot I not have a normal life like other people?

G: (Thinking to herself) Who are these girls and why is he comparing them to me?

G: I am NOT a … I am so ashamed to say that word but you always find the opportunity to insult me. You never understand any one. You have always been so focused on the truth that you do not realize that people lie to protect the ones that they care about.

Jahnvi: Gauri, I think you should talk to him later. This is not a good time to explain yourself as he is not in the position to understand and you are not in the emotional position to explain.

(They all walk outside their room and closes the door. Omkara goes to the door and sits closer to the entrance and Gauri does the same on the other side of the door)

G: I am sorry, Om.

O: My life has been hectic for the past few month, but I had a good friend, Chulbul, to watch my back. If only, I had him now.

Chapter 2

Chapter 2

Precap: Gauri is leaving.

THE NEXT DAY

Gauri creeps inside Omkara’s room and find him sleeping blissfully. Yet, a lone tear was sitting on his nose. Gauri quietly takes her clothes outside from the closet and packs her bag. From the noises Gauri makes, Omkara wakes up but still pretends to sleep to see what Gauri is doing. After she has packed her bag, she goes up to her Shankarji.

G: Shankarji, this is what I get for lying to you but I had to protect my husband. He gave me this life and even though all these times, I have tried to repay him, I always end up making him angry and ruining his life. Why Shankarji? First, I lost my parents at a young age, and then my mother is ill in the hospital. After that, it was Kali and Svetlana. Even though Omkara hated me from the beginning, he acted as a barrier. He unwillingly married me and rebelled against Kali. When I suffocated in the glass box and fainted, he was the one who gave my life back. That was our first kiss. I don’t understand why fate always puts us in this situation. Sometimes always happens unplanned and it turns out to be a blessing in disguise.

(Omkara slightly smiles and blushes thinking about the moment when he gives mouth to mouth resuscitation to Gauri)

G: I was just a disgusting stain, just attached to him. No matter what how many times and he tried to scrub me off, I will always be there. Soon, he will throw that shirt off. It is better just to leave then wait for that painful moment. Shankerji, please protect this family especially Omkaraji. He has gone through a lot so please give him the courage and all the hardship to me. I hope Bade Bhaiyya understands Annika and Rudra accepts Bhavya. You can see true love in their eyes and true love should never lose.

Gauri turns around and then turns abruptly back to her Shankarji.

G (Crying): One more thing, Shankarji, I just hope Omkaraji finds someone that he like. Someone that will love not just him but respect his entire family, and bear his kids. Unlike me, she will be eligible to add Omkara Singh Oberoi to her name.

G: (Holding her mangalsultra) I also need to return this to him. She slowly takes it above her neck and then drops it back on her neck and sits on her knees, devastated. How can I take this off? I do not know about other girls, but this is a symbol of a sacred marriage. Even though this was an one- sided marriage, I will always treat this marriage with respect. After all, this is only thing I am taking with me that will remind me of him.

She goes close to Om and sit on his bed. She leans toward him and ruffles his long silky hair.

G: Thank you for everything. I know you hate me, but you will always have a place in my heart that surpasses my parents. A place close by my Shankarji. Even if you forgot about our marriage, I just hope you do not forget about the great friendship you had with Chulbul. Those days were the greatest part of my life. Even though you did not know my true self, you were the only person there to support me as a friend. A good dost. Thank you.

Her tear drop falls on the tear drop on his nose, blending together and then finally running off from his face. She places her letter by his pillow and takes her bag.

O (Thinking to himself): OMG, she is going to finally leave. But, should she? Where will she go? Back to Bareilly? But, will she be safe with Kali there? What should I say? Should I stop her? But then, why should I sympathize? She lied to me. Not just once but several times and her final lie was the worst of them all. She lied to my entire family that we consummated our marriage and she was pregnant. How can I forgive a person who is willing to sell her self-respect like this? Yes, she lied but she lied for me. She loves about my family and me. Oh Shankarji, look what you have done to me? Not only, I do not know what to do, I started using Gauri Kumari Sarma’s dictionary.

Just then, she sees Omkara just opening his eyes.

G: I know that I will not be able to keep myself together after seeing him. I need to leave this house before anyone finds out.

Before he realizes that she is leaving, she runs out the door. Omkara gets up from his bed.

O: How dares she does not tell me that she is leaving? I mean it is common courtesy to tell someone. How can she be so selfish? She did not even tell Dadi, mom or even Annika Bhabhi. We do care about her.

THE SHOT ENDS with Omkara sitting in his bed with the letter opened repeating all the things she said to Shankarji.

Precap: Gauri stays back but does Om stop her?
