Together Forever (Chap 37);”THE MEMORIES”

Hey guys!!!Chapter 37 continues…..

Lisha wakes up in the morning and sees the whole house decorated…She checks her mobile… No message from Aarav!!!She is staring at all these decorations…She sees her mom over there… She goes to her mom…

Lisha: Ma,I didn’t do anything ma… Trust me…I don’t wanna marry him ma…

Sumi: Lisha, I don’t know whom I can trust now… I have seen you lying many times but Ana never used to lie…And you know what Lisha, I knew that you would not be there in the terrace for night studies… You would go somewhere, right??? During night studies in terrace???

Lisha:Ma,that…I mean

Sumi:I knew it Lisha… Whatever we are doing for you will be the best for you… Go my dear and get a life…You should get ready for the mehendi function…

Lisha: Ma

Sumi:No more words Li!!!Go please…

Her relatives are gathered in the whole house… Shekhar seems to be quite happy…Ana feels very guilty… Sumi thinks that everything will be alright soon… Lisha notices that everyone is busy with their own work… She rushes to Aarav’s home… Seeing the closed door,her hope gets over… Her body is tired of running and her heart is tired of having false hopes… She goes to her home,with all her hope lost… Her face is emotionless…Some women,Ana and Sumi gets her ready for mehendi… She stays silent, reacts nothing…. Just she is acting like a robot…And she is activated by the people present over there… Mehendi rituals also get over…The relatives notices her strange behaviour but they are convinced because nowadays girls are not so happy during marriage… So they just ignore it… Everybody gossips, eats and sleeps… But a war is going in the minds of three persons…One is Ana… One of her conscience says,”Oh Ana!!! Come on!!!You know about Li!!!She loves Aarav… She is in deep pain… And you have to save her “..Another says,” Oh God!!! If I’m doing this work, Ishaan will stoop to low level and my sister should bear 1000 times more than this pain… First she will hate Ishaan… Then it will be alright in a few days… I hope so”…

While Sumi’s heart, “I don’t know whom I wanna believe…I need to trust my both the daughters… But I’m trusting a quite more on Ana… If Lisha is saying truth….No Ana will not lie… Everything will be alright and I hope so!!!”

The two hopes are arising from Ana’s and Sumi’s heart..
Lisha’s thoughts:
“Hopes!!!!Ha ha ha ha!!! No more hopes my heart!! None is gonna come for you… Neither Rohan nor Ana!!! And Aarav!!! His hilarious promises!!! What can I say???He will convince me after he comes saying that there was no signal… But whatever I have send when the signal was there,like “I need you and it’s an emergency” are seen by him… If he couldn’t call or message why can’t he come???? Lisha, who will come for you??? You have to fight alone Lisha… Your know your dad will not believe only your words… So come on Lisha… Don’t think of these people who has nothing to do with you or nothing to do for you… You know Lisha that you are brave and not a coward to commit suicide and all… Don’t trust anybody… You are only your saviour… After the next morning sunrise, it’s your marriage… Will you marry that Ishaan??? Definitely not… Enough is enough Lisha…You know what to do tomorrow…These problems in your life taught you something which is “Don’t trust anyone… Be independent and brave!!!”…

She consoles herself and thinks what to do the next morning…

The next morning, she gets up…She is instructed by her mom to take bath… She takes bath…The groom’s family and groom comes… Ana is making her ready with tears in her eyes and guilt in her heart… And Ana is called for some work…
Lisha to herself: This is your time Lisha…

She goes to the terrace and runs away from the house… The priest asks Ana to bring Lisha down for the marriage… Ana searches for her but can’t find her… She tells to her mom and dad… They all search for them…Everyone gets tensed while Shekhar is rising his anger for Lisha… The groom’s family also goes…. After everything gets over, Lisha comes to the house…First Shekhar sees her… He goes to her and holds her neck with anger…He is being stopped by Ana and Sumi…

Shekhar: What are you doing here????You are not a daughter of mine… Everything gets over now… Get out if this house now… Ana pack her things and dresses… I will throw some money on your face like I’m throwing to the beggars… Go get lost off my sight…

Lisha just cries…

Lisha:Ok I will go for sure dad… I wanna prove my innocence for once dad… Give me a chance dad….Please!!! I will definitely prove it…

Sumi: Let us not blame our daughter…She is just asking for a chance please Shekhar…

Shekhar: Let’s see what’s your daughter is upto??? Tonight is your last day in the house…

All the neighbours gather and talk bad about Lisha…

Shekhar: Look at them Lisha!!! They are talking about you…I’m feeling ashamed Lisha to have you as my daughter… Just for your mom, I’m giving you one last chance… I told you right that I will commit suicide if you don’t marry.Yet you ran away… “You” are your first priority.You won’t care whatever happens even if your dad dies… Feeling very bad Lisha!!!

He cries and goes in…

Sumi goes behind him and Ana stands with Lisha who is just stunned… Ana looks at the people over there…

Ana: Please you all go!!! It’s our family problem… I beg you…

Lisha: Please Anamica,you leave from here… It’s my problem… I know how to solve it…

Ana is stunned to hear this…

Ana: Lisha

Lisha: Not anymore Anamica!!! I don’t wanna hear sorry and all… Please leave me alone Anamica…. Leave me alone…

Anamica cries and goes in…

Lisha thinks of her dad’s words…She just sits near the pillar in the corridor… She cries, cries and cries and the next morning comes…

Sumi comes to Lisha…

Sumi: Lisha

Lisha: What Ma??? Came here to say that I should leave now??? Yeah,I’m leaving… Don’t worry Ma…Sometimes, this life is so hilarious naa???My mother came to me just to tell that I have to leave the house… It’s okay ma…

Sumi:Not like that Li!!! Don’t think like that dear…

Lisha: No ma!! Call dad… I’m waiting here… I will prove my innocence…

Sumi comes with Shekhar and Ana… Lisha calls Ishaan… Ishaan picks up the call immediately…Lisha puts in on speaker…

Ishaan: Hello Lisha!!!

Lisha: Not bad Ishaan!!!Ya I’m Lisha… I will be waiting at the Durgamaa temple near your house with mangalsutra…If you come over there alone and clarify some of my doubts, you can wear the mangalsutra on my neck… I’m being frank and this time no running away… I will be there in 15 minutes.. I think you will come…

She cuts the call and asks her parents and Ana to hide somewhere to watch their conversation… Ishaan who is desperate for Lisha, goes to the temple immediately… Shekhar,Sumi,Ana watch them by hiding behind the tree which Lisha only knows….

Lisha: Hey Ishaan!!!Not bad… You have come here… Ok…Straight to the talk-I don’t have to strength to prove myself anymore… I’m ready to marry you… But before that, I always wanted my husband to be honest to me… So I will ask you two questions… If you are answering me honestly, we will go and marry before the lord the next moment…

Ishaan: Of course Lisha…

Lisha: Did I love you??? And how did you force Ana to say such a lie??? And what about the pics of us??

Ishaan:Lisha

Lisha: I don’t want you to say my name.. I want the truth… If you are ready to accept the truth, I’m ready to marry you…

Ishaan:You didn’t love me… I emotionally blackmailed Ana to say like that and the truth is that those pics are photoshopped…I’m sorry Lisha. Come let’s marry…

Shekhar and Sumi watches all these and stares at Ana..Ana bends her head down… Shekhar rushes to Ishaan and beats him…He calls the police to arrest Ishaan… Sumi apologises to Lisha with tears in her eyes and Ana too apologises to her… Lisha still stands with a zero expression face…Shekhar comes and apologises to Lisha… He hugs him and scolds Ana for not telling the truth… Lisha who is only focussed on those insults and problems she had faced…Ana hugs her and apologises.. Lisha is acting like a dead body… She is not talking anything…She goes into the house and sits like a robot… Her mom feeds her food… Her dad again apologises to her… But her reaction remains the same.. She goes into the bedroom and sleeps somehow… Morning she wakes up to the message of Aarav…The message is,
“Hey Shona!!! The marriage got over… Enjoyed a lot… Because of network problem, I couldn’t all you… Today evening I will be there for you”

She simply reads this message and takes all her important Marksheets and certificates and keeps in the bag… Her whole day passes without any interaction, without music… Lisha is not at all normal… Ana tries to make her normal but couldn’t… Again the night comes… Everybody goes to sleep… Around 11 p.m.,Lisha checks on everyone. She sees everyone sleeping… Then she packs her bags…She writes a letter and places it on the dinning table… She takes her mobile phone.. Just then she notices 23 missed calls of Aarav and 106 messages from him…. She is ready to leave the house but her heart is longing to see Aarav for one last time…She keeps her packed bags and her savings in a bench of her house… She then leaves to Aarav’s house by climbing pipelines as usual…

Standing in front of the doors of Aarav’s house, she goes to knock on the door… But she presses the switch of calling bell..Aarav rushes to the door and is stunned to see Lisha, that too pressing the switch of calling bell…

Aarav: Shona!!! Why are you not knocking on the door???

Lisha: Aarav, whenever I used to knock, you wanted me to use the calling bell…. Now I’m using it, you are asking why I didn’t knock on the door…

Aarav: Call me Aaru,Shona… What happened to you??? I have called you many times, messaged you… No replies??? And please tell me why didn’t you knock the door???

Lisha: I feel that at least for once,I will act as you like…That’s why Aaru!!!

One of her tears is ready to flow down from the eyes… But she doesn’t show anything…She acts as being normal….

Lisha: Ok then good-bye Aarav… Take care of your health…

Aarav with tension: Hey, what happened to you Shona??? Are you alright???Why are you leaving so soon???

Lisha:I’m alright Aaru!!! I wanna leave because dad is suffering from cold.. He might wake up at anytime… Bye Aaru!!! Take care…

Lisha to herself: Don’t lose your courage… It’s okay Lisha…

Aarav: Okay Lisha!!! Go safely… Bye!!!

Lisha starts to walk away..
Lisha to herself: Don’t look back at his face… That will make you weak…

Aarav in a high voice: Shonaaa!!!! See you tomorrow!!! Missed you very very very badly!!!
Your smile,your talks, our cute fights and everything….

This time, Lisha can’t control herself… Tears start to flow from her eyes and she runs towards him… She jumps and hugs him crying very heavily…

Lisha with stammering words: I’m sorry Aaru!!!So sorry…

Aarav:Hey why are you crying??? And what about that sorry???Shona please what happens to you???

Lisha: Sorry for not replying your messages and calls…. I’m crying since I missed you…

Aarav: It’s okay Shona!!!You should not cry like this baba!!!

Lisha gets up from his shoulders and wipes his tears which came because of her tears…

Lisha: Bye Aaru!!! Take care…

Aarav: Ok baba!!!Bye Shona…Sleep well…

She waves him a bye but Aarav has no idea that that bye from her will be the last goodbye to him by her…

She then goes to home…She goes to Dad who is sleeping…

Lisha: Bye Dad!!!I always want my happiest Dad.. Will miss you…

She then goes to Sumi who is also sleeping…
She kisses her forehead and says that she will miss her…

She goes to sleeping Ana…

Lisha caresses her hairs…

Lisha: You gotta be more courageous… I’m sorry Ana!!! Bye… Will miss you very badly…

She then takes all her stuffs and leaves from the home by climbing pipelines…

She walks all alone in the street where she played with Ana and Rohan, where her mom used to run after her to feed her food, where her dad used to lift her and Ana up and go around, where Aarav and she used to do all the crazy stuffs together….Her heart is feeling very light of these “MEMORIES”.

Thank you,

With love,
