Swara is managing the dining table when she heard a familiar voice of girl.:”good evening swara” she feels bitter taste after seeing shanaya in her house.(yeah she considers this house her).
Swara smiles hardly:”it’s night”
Shanaya notices her fake smile but ignores it.:”I know dear! Where’s sanskar?”
Swara wants to say that he’s not in home but his voice comes before him:”hey shanaya! You’re here? Is everything ok?”
Shanaya goes and hugs him:”I was missing you, so I came here, do you have any object?”
Swara sighs to see her:(chudail).
Sanskar:”oh! Me too my dear, and your timing is perfectly right, swara made dinner today”
Shanaya turns to her:”oh really!! Do you have any object of ill join you?”
Swara gives her a fake smile:”not at all…” She hardly says, both clearly noticed her fake smile and disliking.
Shanaya ignores it while Sanskar doesn’t spare anyone. His smile vanished to see her fake expression:”swara! If you don’t like it, you can say clearly, we dont mind, I told you that I hate lie, be what you’re! You don’t need to give fake expression that you’re great girl who’s bearing all this….” Shanaya tries to stop him while Swara starts crying to listen his words.
Swara in her heart:”whenever I think that I’m understanding you, then you prove me wrong,I hate you sanskar, ill never do anything for you, damn to you swara, who did effort for him”
She leaves from there and wipes her tears.
Shanaya:”you’re so hard to her, why did you scold her?”
Sanskar:”because I don’t want that she’ll betray me, fake expression is first step of betrayel,you know very well, I like fair people and she should be fair to her emotions”
Shanaya:”you’re disgusting sanskar! Go and sorry to her”
Sanskar:”no way! I’ll not, I always scold her because I don’t want that she repeat that mistake”
Shanaya:”you’re such a jerk” she leaves there while Sanskar follows her.
Both go to dining table while swara is serving to them.
Shanaya:”Lavanya will serve. Swara, come and join us please” a clear pleading can understand in her words but swara doesn’t understand. (nautanki).
Swara:”who am I to join you? My place is just equal to servant of this house, So im doing my work”
Sanskar and Shanaya’s face color has changed to listen her words. Sanskar is about to scold her but shanaya press his hand.
Shanaya stands up, holds her from shoulders and makes her sit beside sanskar.
Swara jerks her hands and silently weeps to recall the words of sanskar.
Shanaya hits sanskar by her foot to say sorry while Sanskar face is emotionless in this situation which clearly show that he doesn’t wanna show his feelings.
Shanaya:”dont cry swara!! I know he shouldn’t scold you, he’ll not do this thing again, I guarantied this…”
Swara cuts her words in rage:”who’s The hell are you taking guarantee and etc? This is our husband wife matter and we’ll solve it, you don’t need to interfere in this”
She’s still weeping, shanaya looks sanskar helplessly while Sanskar is looking shanaya as he’s saying her:”look! Take her side more”
Shanaya takes a bowl of food from her and serve her:”ok! This is your matter, but as a guest can I take a meal which is prepared by you? Will not you wanna give respect to your guest?”
Shanaya knows her nature and she doesn’t want the she gives fake expression, she also know that if she leaves the home then sanskar will be more hard to swara. Then she finds a reason to stay there with Swara’s heartily agreement.
Swara suddenly boggles and feels ashamed that she’s disrespecting her guest. No matter she likes her or not but she doesn’t have right to disrespect her while her value doesn’t allow her to disrespect her guests:”I’m sorry shanaya! (she wipes her tears) please sit and Lavanya serve us food”
A small glance of smile comes on the lips of sanskar.
Shanaya:”wow swara! Your food is awesome, it’s beating the food of his hotels” swara gets happy to listen her praise (she’s not so bad as I considered her) who doesn’t like praise?
Sanskar:”swara! Be ready, we’ll go somewhere in evening”
Swara:”huh! You and bring me somewhere”
Sanskar turns to him:”as a husband! I’ve not right to go outside with you?”
Swara nods while she’s happy inside that finally she’s going somewhere.
In the evening, she hardly chose the dress, every dress she chose and reject to saying that:”naa he will not like this, I dont know where he will go with me, then ill decide the dress according to the place”.
After the effort of one hour, she chooses red kurta with green churidar. She has tied her hairs in French braid. She’s ready to going with sanskar and waking here and there for waiting him.
After a few minutes Lavanya come to her room:”ma’am! sir has come, he’s calling you”
She smiles and looks into mirror to observe that hows she looking tonight.
Swara takes her handbag and goes downstairs with excitement. He’s in the car, she goes and hesitantly sit on front seat.
She also come with him at the day of marriage but now her feelings are turned for him.
He often stays silent in front of her, she never saw him to talking without use.
He stops the car in front resort, “Morning Star” as the name of resort shows that it’s part of his hotel.
Both come inside and staff is alerted to see him.
He brings her to spa portion:”goes inside, don’t worry there’s only woman allow” she looks him questionably.
Although he’s so bold but his tongue stop for a while but he says:”I think you need a massage, I make special arrangement for you, you go, im waiting in my office”
Swara is still confuse to see him and his behaviour but she’s sure that he’ll never harm her, inside the deep, she trusts her completely.
She goes inside silently, but after her therapy, she really feels good that she feels that her every pain and tiredness are vanished after it.
She smiles and goes towards his cabin. He’s smoking and his eyes are stare unseen things in space. He sees her and stands up:”do you wanna have dinner there, or anywhere else?”
She thinks for a while:”it’s ok! We will have our dinner here”
He nods and asks her about her favourite dishes. She tells him which he orders his secretary.
He urges his hand towards her:”lets go”
She doesn’t understand that now where he’ll take her, but she silently holds his hand and feels like that it’s her first touch.
He holds her and brings her to the beautiful surrounding. She their table near swimming pool, he makes her sit and sits opposite to her.
Swara feels happy but also fears that either he wants her something special for this special arrangement. Swara is thinking about to ask him but his voice interrupt her thought:”maybe you’re thinking that why am I bring you there?”
Swara nods in yes because she knows the result of lie and she also knows that he’ll caught her immediately. (dont know how he always gets know about what’s in my heart).
Waiter comes and brings their order, he paused until waiter goes from there and they stay alone in this beautiful environment.
Sanskar:”dont take it any special thing, you’re my wife and this is my responsibility to give you happiness, as possible as I can do in my limits” he tags full stop on his words as he doesn’t need to explain more.
Swara:(is this really enough to give happiness? Why dont you give your beautiful smile instead of all this? But despite of it, I’ve a hope in my heart that at least you’ve concern for my happiness in my heart, im not hopeless sanskar).
She smiles to see his husband who’s taking his dinner with the unawareness of romance of surrounding and beauty of his wife.
Both reached at home after spending beautiful and silent evening with each other. She comes from dressing room after changing the cloth, he’s half laying on bed. She thought that as usual he was asleep after taking pills but after see him awakening, a strange feelings come in her heart. Fear mixed with little bit happiness.
Sanskar comes to him and holds her hand, she closes her eyes to feel his closeness.
Sanskar puts a velvety small case on her hand:”this is your desert ritual gift, sorry I’ve forgot to give you”
Swara opens her eyes and wonders to see the case. He leaves his hand and says:”this is your gift, so ill not force you to wear it, (he collects some words) anytime, if you feel something for me, I know it’ll never been happened but for wearing it, this is all your choice, if I see you wearing it, then I’ll understand that you accept me” he as usual pats her face and goes to his bed.
She’s starring him to taking sleeping pills and wish that he again leave some water in his glass. But this time she’s disappoint to see that there’s nothing left in glass. She’s still standing with dressing table until a slow voice of his breathing is echoing in the room. She suspicious about hid gift and opens the velvet case, a small stone enlightens her face and she’s surprise to see his gift because she never expect this gift from him..(guess guys! What was he gifted to her?)
