Days passed and Abhi was unpredictable as almost every time he would help Pragya in something. Even though, she liked it but what was most confusing was Abhi’s anger that suddenly comes out of nowhere. It made Pragya scared at times and she had to ask Sahana’s help and she came that day to their house.
Pragya “Just help me ask him whether is he ok? I mean I can ask him but you know na…we are still not that close even as friends….” Sahana “No worries Pragya…I will ask him everything and u just try to watch us secretly from outside….” Sahana went inside Abhi’s room and made sure the door is slightly opened so that Pragya can see what is happening inside.
Pragya managed to stand in a position that he is not aware that she is not outside.
She was hiding and hearing Abhi saying something to Sahana but it was inaudible to Pragya. Pragya, Why I can’t hear what is he tellling? She looked at Sahana who gave an expression that was very difficult to be interpreted . Then in a while, Abhi’s voice became louder…. Abhi “I am searching something from her Sahana…Do you know why I am always after her but before that I am maintaining a distance with her?” Sahana “Why? Is it because u owe her for what your Uncle was responsible for her family’s plight?” Abhi “No!” Sahana “Then is it because u love her?” Abhi “No!” Sahana “Then for what are u doing all this?”
Abhi “For you Sahana!” Sahana hearing that was shocked. Abhi “Because I think I love you!” Sahana “What are u blabbering? Is this a prank Abhi?” Abhi held her hands and looked deeply into her eyes.
Abhi “No Sahana…I know I did a prank before in our college days….I proposed u on a April fool’s day but now I feel it’s real!” Sahana “It was meant to be a prank! Are u trying to be a fool acting this way?” Abhi “Haan I am a fool in front of your love Sahana….You made me a fool….” Sahana in a very angry tone said “This is the limit Abhi! For god’s sake do u even remember that u are married?” Abhi “I know but love don’t have limits….It can happen at any situation….” Sahana “I think you are just acting!” Abhi “No Sahana! I am not acting! Believe me! I love you…You too love me right?” Sahana in stern voice said “No! When did I say so?” Abhi “Certain things no need to be told….Your concern for me and always enquiring how am I through Purab that tells it how much u love me….”
Sahana “Shut up Abhi! That is friendship! I care for u as a friend!” Abhi hugged Sahana tightly and made her struggle in his hug. He said “That’s also love Sahana….I know u love me….” Sahana “Leave me! What are u even trying to do?” He moved back and said “Pragya is just a passing cloud in my life…after all she married me to just get back her house…Within few months the case will be over and she will leave me too…There is no love between us Sahana!” Sahana “Are u even sure of what u are saying?” Abhi “I am very sure Sahana…all the while I was confused with her but with u I am very clear….Even now if she listen to all this then she will pack her bags and leave….That’s what we share with each other! It’s just tolerating each other’s presence!”
Pragya was shell shocked hearing all this…..She was unable to stay in that place anymore and she quickly ran into her room and locked herself up. Pragya looked at the empty box that he once took and kept. Pragya, Just like this empty box my life is also empty now…He said there is no love between us….I am saying there is no life present now after hearing whatever he said….She cried her heart out and remembered the moments he was close to her. All were filled with love and passion for her but now he is saying he loves Sahana…..Is this even real? Is this why I dreamt of him running away from me when I came closer to wipe his face?
The more she thought of Abhi hugging Sahana, the more she felt her heart was feeling heavy with sadness and loss of her love….the loss of her only love…..
She wiped her tears and went back to the place where Abhi and Sahana were. Sahana had already left and Abhi was reading a magazine as if nothing happened. Pragya hesitantly asked “May I come in?” Abhi “Come in!” Pragya trying to control her tears said “I am sorry for everything….”
Abhi questioned “Sorry for what? ” She immediately turned behind as her tears were unstoppable, when she faced him more….Abhi “Why sorry?” Pragya couldn’t stand even his words anymore and rushed to her room back.
Pragya, How can he even act with me all this while? What is this Lieko for when I am not even his loved one? Why did I even call him Kiddy? I feel frustrated for meeting him and always having the desire to only meet him even when he annoyed me! Everything is shattered into pieces not only my past but also my present! Is this why I love him? To get shattered into pieces….What’s the use Pragya…u are already shattered in life and now the shattered pieces are just scattered everywhere that is unable to be joined together anymore……
Now what will happen in Abhigya’s life? Why Abhi is doing like this?
