“i wi..”before he could have completed it.ragini kissed him and pulled back next instant.
“you will not…okay?”ragini said with sweet smile while patting his cheek and tried to move back but lucky holds her and kiss her.
“sanskar have you seen ragini,kavya,lucky and sahil”swara said,peeping inside study room.
“no…i didn’t.”sanskar said, without raising his head from case file.swara comes inside and started looking under table and different couches.

“swara you know..i don’t like drinking.”sanskar said in annoyed tone.
“your brothers and my friends are kidnapped sanskar…you are ACP na,write my complain”swara said,opens file on table and gives him pen.

Swara was standing behind door,hearing shekhar and urvashi talks.
“shekhar! how long this girl will stay here.i can’t bare her presence in my house.she makes remember that you had married someone else before me.’urvashi shouted.
“Have you lost your kind,whole world knows i married you so that you can take care of swara after shermishta death.if i will send her somewhere.DP will get doubt that i did everything for money….and he will throw us out from here.you had wait for so many years then wait a little more.”shekhar said in frustrated voice.

Shekhar knocks at swara’s room door and entered inside.swara looks at him,gets up and sit on bed.
‘your pribciple has send your result card…why you got such low marks,below average”shekhar asked in strcit voice.
“i don’t like studies…’swara replied in calmly.
“studies are very important…without studies you are nothing.you have to study so that you can earn your necessities.
“what’s need to study for that…i will marry a rich guy,tranfer his whole property on my name and spend my whole life peafully.”swara said,looking in his eyes directly.shekhar was not able to stare back in her eyes therefore gets up quickly.
“you have forgot the manners to talk with your father….therefore i decided to send you boarding house…pack your bags.”shekhar said trying to be angry,not meeting with her eyes.he turned and left from their.
Swara looks at her mothers picture.
“swara why are you going?…with whom i will play”abhi said sadly.swara’s eyes got filled with tears.he gives “will miss you” drawing.swara hugs him and starts crying.

“bye…when you will come on vacations then we will play together”abhi said like a innocent child.swara gives him sad smile and sit inside car.
“so your are in 7th standard…and i can see you are not good in studies because of your father we are giving you admission but you have to work hard.”principal said in strict voice.Another teacher takes swara with her.
“don’t worry mr.gaddodia we will take care of her.”
Shekhar nodded and give her check.
“its her whole year fee…she should not face any difficulty here.”shekhar said,somewhere in small he had some care but money’s magic was dominating.
“off course sir.”
Shekhar nodded and left.

“i know he can but thing we can’t let you stay here…its already two months.i am afraid child you have to leave”
swara bites her lower lip and nodded and leaves.
Swara was finding bus stand from two hours.it was getting dark also but there was no sign of bus stand.she stopped two men and asked for bus stand.they looked at her from top to bottom.
“are you lost…”one asked smioing wickedly.swara nodded innocently.
“don’t worry…we will take you there…come with us.”
‘thank you..”she started walking with them and told everything in small journey.
“what is this place?…it doesn’t look like bus stand”swara said looking around worriedly.
“you will be hungry…first eat something then we will take you there”one said sweetly and takes her inside one house.
“no uncle its fine..i am not hungry i will go myself”swara said in scared voice.her heart don’t know why was signalling something very wrong.but man holds her arm firmly nd takes her inside.
“madam see what we brought today….sou taka maal ha”
A woman in her 50’s looked at her from top to bottom very minutely.swara tried to free her arms.woman takes out a bundle of money and throw it toward man.
“gulshan take this girl inside”she ordered a woman.
“no..i don’t want to go.i want to go to my house”swara started crying loudly.man slapped her hard and throw her toward gulshan.she takes her inside forcefully.
‘please let me go..i don’t want to stay here”swara cried.
‘quite…not a word.no one can escapes from here.”gulshan said and push her inside one room.many women turned their heads and looks at her.
‘new girl…’gulshan said laughing wickedly.
“she looks young..”one commented.
“hmm…not even 18″another said,came near her.swara stepped back but woman holds her arm.all went back to their works.
“what is your name…’she asked in sweet soft voice.
“don’t be scared…now you are going to stay here for life long….what is your age?”
all women again turned their heads toward her and few came toward her.
“she is too young….’
“please let me go…i don’t want to stay here.”swara jouned hands in front of them.they looks at her with pityful look.
“if we would have know how to escape we had done it long back.”one said chuckling in humorless tone.Just then that woman entered inside and looks at them angerfilled eyes.
“what you all doing here?…its time of work.Go.”she said and everyone looks at themselves in mirror and left hurriedly,leaving swara,gulshan and that woman alone.
“gulshan..stay with this girl.she is new,will definitely try to escape…and make her ready for tomorrow also.’
Gulshan nodded obediently.woman left after giving a curt look to swara.gulshan makes her sit on chair and sit in front of her.
“listen swara….trying to escape from here is useless.you will never succeed but if you will do whatever tai say then you will stay here very happily…..got it.”gulshan made her understand.
“what i have to do?…”swara asked innocently.gulshan smiles,she makes her ready and send her in one room.gulshan stands at door with teary eyed and was going back to her work when she heard scream of man.she quickly opens the door and saw man laying on floor and blood was spread on floor.
“what have you done?..”gulshan said in shocked tone.
“i don’t want to do this work….please..please help me.”swara said dropping broken vase.
“i didn’t told you to leave safe house of your parents and run away with some boy.”gulshan said in curt voice.
“No…i was going home.my father didn’t pay my dues.principal told me to leave.i didn’t knew way to bus stand.i asked from them.they brought me here..please help me.”
“didn’t your mother told you…never talk with strangers”
“she died long back…”
swara hugged her and started pleading.gulshan was shocked with her act.she slowly keeps hand on her back,one drop fell from gulshan’s eye.she breaks hug quickly and wipes corner of her left eye.
“stop crying okay…i am leaving here from very long time.i can tell you how to escape, rest is your luck….”
“how did you come here…you are nice.”swara asked,wipin her tears from back of her hands.
“i ran away with biy and he sold me here…but it was not his mistake.it was my kistake.those girls who leave their parents sae hourse mostly lands in such places”gulshaan said in chuckling voice.
Swara just stare at her face.there was no emotion on her face but eyes were filled with too much pain.
“what happens here?..”swara asked in curious tone.gulshaan smiles and pats her cheek.
“one thing lways keep on your mind…never ever trust anyone.people breaks trust and the moment you will step out from here…run as much you can otherwise they will caught you again…hmm?”gulshan said in serious tone.she takes swara to dark area of that huge house,opens door and push swara out.
“RUN…’she said and closed the door.swara blinks at her then run with full speed.
Some men saw her escaping and run after her.gulshan just saw her escaping from main door and men were running after her.Gulshan shakes her head.
“she is going to come here again…’she just thought.
