When Love Turns Dark Part 2
Rashi sat near Gopi:Gopi…no need to be scared.You are in our house.
Gopi was relieved.
RASHI:I found you unconscious on the road and so i brought you here.The doctor said you starved and that’s why you fainted.So drip was given.Why did’nt you eat anything Gopi?
Gopi burst into tears.
RASHI:What happened Gopi?
GOPI:I was stuck up in a bad marriage.My husband tortured me every single second.Because he had an extra marital affair.So I left the house.My own family abandoned me as they think that after marriage a girl has no place in Maayka.So I wandered around homeless.That’s why I starved.
Ahem-Gopi were shocked.
RASHI:Oh no..your parents and your husband are so heartless.Who is your husband?
GOPI:What is the point in that?I have left him and he is no more my husband.
RASHI:Where will you go?
GOPI:I don’t know.
RASHI:You stay here Gopi.
Gopi was stunned:But Rashi..
RASHI:You were our best friend in college.So it’s our duty to help you.
Rashi looked at Ahem:Right Ahem?
Ahem said hesitatingly:Yes.
RASHI:So you stay here Gopi.
Gopi hugged Rashi:Thank you so much Rashi.You are an Angel who helped me when my own family abandoned me.
Rashi-Gopi became emotional.Rashi caressed her.
Ahem was irritated and he left to their room.
Ahem:Damn it..Gopi will stay here.
He turned back.Rashi was there.
RASHI:So you don’t like Gopi staying here.Right?
Ahem:Yes.I want privacy.I don’t like anyone spoiling our paradise.Because of her our wedding anniversary got spoiled.
RASHI:Oh Ahem.Gopi is in distress.As friends we should help her.Right?
Ahem:Gopi has no one.So are you planning to make her stay here for the whole life?
RASHI:Ahem…why are you thinking too much?
Ahem:We need to think Rashi.
RASHI:I can’t think too much about the future like you.But all I know is I want to help Gopi now.I am not that selfish to leave my friend to suffer alone.
Ahem:You are proving that Gopi is more important for you than me.
RASHI:Ahem…why are you thinking like this?
Ahem:Your behaviour is forcing me to think like this Rashi.
RASHI:Nothing like that Ahem.I just want to help her.
Ahem:Ok help….I won’t stop you.
Ahem lay on his bed closing his eyes.Rashi became dull.
The next day Rashi served breakfast to Gopi.
RASHI:Eat well.Here I won’t let you starve.
Rashi took Gopi out.Gopi started becoming fresh.
RASHI:After coming here there is change in you.Your pale face is becoming bright.I am so happy for you.
Ahem went near Rashi.
Ahem:Rashi…you are always after Gopi.Now you don’t have time for me.
RASHI:Nothing like that Ahem.Gopi needs our presence now.You were also her friend in college.But now you are not even talking to her.At least I should take care of her.Right?
Gopi who overheard this felt sad seeing them argue in her name.
Ahem:Ok…now onwards you sleep with Gopi,don’t come to sleep with me.
Ahem walked off.
Rashi became upset.
Gopi started packing her bag.Rashi went near her.
RASHI:Gopi,what are you doing?Why are you packing your bag?
GOPI:I am going Rashi.
GOPI:Because I know that Ahem does’nt want me here.
Rashi was shocked:Gopi…
GOPI:You may be wondering how I know that.I over heard your conversation with Ahem.Sorry i was not supposed to listen to that.But I …
Rashi felt embarrassed:I am sorry Gopi.Actually Ahem is not like this.But…
Gopi cried:Ahem was a very good friend of mine in college.Then why is he behaving like this?Why is he ignoring me?Why does he hate me?I don’t know.
RASHI:I am sorry Gopi.Don’t be upset and please don’t leave.
GOPI:No Rashi.I have to leave.
Rashi held her hand:No..I won’t allow you to leave.
Rashi went to Ahem’s room.
RASHI:Ahem…Gopi overheard our conversation and because of you she decided to leave the house.
Ahem was surprised:Oh really?Very good.
RASHI:How can you be so heartless and cruel Ahem?
Ahem:Enough Rashi.Don’t fight with me for that Gopi.Now I hate Gopi more as because of her we both are fighting now.
RASHI:Oh Ahem…why are you always blaming Gopi?Tell me..we both were Gopi’s close friend in college.Then why are you so indifferent to her now?You don’t even talk to her.
Ahem:Not now Rashi.Since our college got over my attitude towards Gopi has been like this.That’s why I did’nt invite her for our wedding.
Rashi was shocked:What?You had’nt invited Gopi?That’s why she did’nt attend our wedding?You told me not to invite Gopi as you wanted to invite her by yourself.But you did’nt invite her at all and you lied to me that Gopi went abroad and that’s why she did’nt come.
Ahem:Ya..I had told her not to come for our wedding.
Rashi was shocked:What?Gopi played cupid in our love story and still you told her not to attend our wedding?But why Ahem?Tell me.
Ahem:Gopi our cupid?It was all her drama.
Ahem:I hid it from you as I did’nt want you to know the true colours of your friend.But since problems are created because of Gopi I will tell you everything.Be prepared to face the truth Rashi.
