Pragya, It’s really bad that I am hiding all he need to know. I am going to tell him today itself.
Pragya in her room was trying herself to stay calm and said “Ok Pragya! Whatever it is I must tell him today and especially before he himself finds out the truth! Day by day it is very difficult for me to resist his presence…..”
With that she walked out from her room with a lot of nervousness of how would he feel if he knows the truth.
She knocked his door and Abhi “Come in! It’s open Pragya!” Pragya opened the door and saw him packing his luggage. Pragya “Are u going somewhere?” Abhi “Why do u think so?” Pragya “You are packing your stuff and it means u are going off somewhere right?” Abhi “Not all the time….This is all my favorite stuffs and I am packing to keep them safe!” Pragya “Oh! May I help you?” Abhi, Why her tone is the same way when she spoke to me before she left the hotel? Pragya waved her hand in front of his face. Abhi came back to his senses and said “It’s ok as I am almost done!” Pragya “Oh then…I have to tell you something…..” Abhi now closing the zip of the luggage asked her “What Pragya?” Pragya was looking everywhere and was trying her best to tell him something that disturbed her…..Abhi looking at her asked “Is it anything important? Anything about Purab or your marriage?” Pragya “No! I mean not about Purab or marriage….but it’s important….it’s about you!” Abhi “About me? And that too important?” Pragya “Haan! I….How do I say? Let me tell you but promise me that u won’t get angry on me!” Abhi, What is she up to now! What if it’s something crazy again but there is so much of depth in her eyes now….
Abhi hesistantly said “Promise! Tell me now!” Pragya “ I am actually your……..” Just then Robin entered the room saying “ Sir! Shanthi ma and Ram sir are back!” Abhi “Serious? Mummy and Dad are back? Pragya u come with me too! You haven’t see my parents right?” Abhi never let Pragya tell anything and she just held her hands and walked with her fastly out from his room. Pragya, Oh no! What can I do now? Aunty and Uncle are already here!
Abhi left her hands and ran towards his mother first and gave her a tight hug. Shanti ma “Abhi! How are u? U should have just stayed us with there and it would have been so nice!” Abhi “Ma! U know the reason why I was staying here and still u are telling like this!” Ram “ Haan she is always like that and will u only hug your Ma and not your Dad ah?” Abhi “Of course I will hug my Dashing Dad!” By saying that he hugged him too and realized that he never introduce Pragya who was standing at a corner. Abhi “Ma! Dad! Look there it’s Pragya and she is Purab’s fiancé!” Shanti ma “Are u kidding? How can she be Purab’s fiancé when he is already married!” Abhi was shocked and said “What!!!When did this happen?” Shanthi “ Just recently and he left India to get married. He never told u that?” Abhi was very confused now and Shanthi walked towards Pragya and gave her a warm hug. Shanthi “I missed you so much and it’s pleasant to see you walk with him holding his hands just now…..” Abhi “Ma! You know Pragya?” Abhi’s Ma “Yes! I know her and not only me your dad also knows her very well!” Abhi “How is that possible?” Shanthi “ How can we not know our bahu?” Abhi “What are you saying? I am not married to her!” Shanthi “Relax! You are going to marry her soon and she is already our bahu from the moment we decided that she is the one for you!”
Abhi, So she was fixed by my Ma to get married to me! No wonder she knows about me! It means she researched about me and know about my past. All the while she was acting and telling lies that she is Purab’s fiancé!
Abhi turned to face Pragya who was hiding her face using duppata. Abhi just walked off in anger towards his room. Abhi’s parents were shocked to see him with anger and they heard a loud sound as he slammed the door. Pragya “Aunty! He still don’t know that I am his fiancé and I was about to tell him today everything…..But you had rushed into it…” Shanthi ma “ Oh I see…I thought you would have told by now….but it’s ok I will make him understand later! He is now very angry!” Pragya “Angry at me?” Ram “ Not really! Angry at all of us!” By saying that both of them laughed and Pragya couldn’t believe that they were laughing at Abhi’s anger. Pragya “He is angry and why are u laughing Aunty?” Shanthi ma by trying to stop her laughter said “ No….whenever he gets angry he would slam the door!” Pragya “ But what is there to laugh about? Everyone in anger does that right?” Ram “ But not everyone slam the door to the extent that it would have cracks!” Pragya “What??” Shanthi ma “Yes and we are used to so many cracks in his door and every time we have to call the carpenter to fix his doors….” Pragya “He is hurting himself……” Shanthi ma “ You are so caring that he would have hurt his hands while slamming the door right?” Pragya looking sadly said “Haan….” Ram “No worries Bahu! He never uses his hand to close the door in anger! He uses some metal rod!” Pragya “Metal rod? And why is that so?”
Shanthi ma “Pragya! You are asking so many questions all about him and not how was our journey! By the way we are very tired now! I will tell u everything later about the metal rod! I know you love him and I also know that he won’t accept that too! What you know about him is more than enough to change him. I know how you know him closely as u have told me before…..but he is a closed book and u must open it to get closer to him….” Pragya hugged Shanthi ma with tears and said “ I am very sorry for bothering all of u!” Ram “You are not at all bothering us and if u tell like this then it’s bothering to us!” Pragya broke from the hug and Shanthi ma wiped her tears. Shanthi “You are just like her in worrying for small things and he will slowly understand how he is closely attached to you!” By saying that Abhi’s parents moved their way towards the room.
Pragya, I am not completely like her….Yes she is someone who made me believed that I can live but parts of her is present within me….That is what he must know….
