hii all first of all thanks to u all who commented on this story spending ur precious comments happy womens day to all.. I am so proud of being a woman.. women are the sign of power so in this womens day I wish all to respect nd love women as what they really are.. so now back to the story..
abhi “ exactly why pragya is not her?”
Then tanu hit the death nail of my coffin “ coz I am gng to marry you. With your consent..”abhi’s eyes popped out with this one. He seriously didn’t expected this…
Abhi “ what ? how can this be possible?” tanu “ why not abhi.. it is the only possible way.. u came to see me as ur bride I gave my consent and u too gave ur consent our marriage was fixed and now we are in our marriage mandap. Whats the big deal?” abhi with irritation, “ it is a big deal tanu coz I thought I was marrying pragya so only I gave my consent but I don’t know how ur chapter came in between” tanu “ what the hell abhi how did pragya came in this.. even on the first day itself u know I am ur bride how can u think pragya as ur to-be-wife ?” abhi “ tanu u r not understanding I thought pragya only as my bride so only I said ‘yes’ for marriage. Why she smiled when I said ‘ I am the one’?” tanu “ that is because she also thought like u as the marriage broker said to us but when I explained she understood but u r so dumb abhi cant u see the difference between me and pragya. I am so hot and happening.. we can make a great pair in front of the media and ur reputation will go high but with pragya did u eve think of what will others say that she is hvng an illegitimate son before her marriage and what about ur reputation abhi ?” when she illegitimate abhi got much anger and he raised his hand but lowered down as she was a woman “ tanu I am dng anything as u r a woman and I don’t have th habit of disrespecting woman but keep that in mind don’t u dare speak ill about my pragya or my son reyansh u will face the worst of me mind it”.
Before things could get ugly sarla aunty who was standing there came immediately and said “ abhi beta even though she said wrong she was right pragya is not married and she has a son so u cannot marry her. I have given my promise to tanu that u will marry her so don’t make a scene here after marriage we can discuss it. It is our family matter ok panditji continue the rituals.” Without hearing abhi’s words the rituals again started. Abhi didn’t even know what to do. One side prgya his love of life one side sarla aunty his only support in all these years. He was doing everything the panditji like a robot without any expression. Pandit said tanu and abhi to get up for the pheras. They both stood up to finish this pure ritual. Abhi and tanu took their first round. Tanu’s eyes were beaming with excitement while abhi’s eyes were filled with sorrow and regret.
On the other side,pragya was so sad. Even though she didn’t reciprocated, pragya started loving abhi endlessly seeing his pure love for her and her son reyansh. He seemed to have acquainted a special place in her heart next to reyansh. His selfless nature his grim humors his one liners his fatherly love for rey made a greater impact on her. She didn’t knw why she was feeling so lost on seeing him married to tanu. May be she got to know that if he marries tanu he would not be able to spend time with her and reyansh.
Reyansh who was confused and amused of the confrontation between abhi and tanu and was shocked as he saw his papa is sitting with that tanu aunty whom he hated to an extent because of her cold nature. He asked his mom pragya about this unusual behavior of his papa “mama.. papa why round round karte hain tanu aunty ke saath?”. Pragya who was sailing in her own reverie came out of it and saw reyansh. She thought to clear his confusion as she did not want him to expect abhi to be with him always as he like. Pragya “ ansh now you should not call him papa ok?” rey with anger and irritation “ why.. woh my papa only..”pragya “ ansh u should not ok listen to me please. Abhishek is marrying tanu aunty so u should not call him papa?” rey “ mama if papa marry tanu.. he will not come to me?” pragya nodded her head and said “ yes tanu aunty will stay with abhishek and be wth him” rey’s face fell after hearing this “then papa. Wil not meet me” pragya nodded her head in negative. Reyansh was in the verge of crying “ then where will we go?” pragya “ we will stay in delhi as mama has work her abhishek and tanu aunty will go to Mumbai and will stay there so now be a good boy and be silent ok. After the marriage is over we will go to our home and we will have ice cream ok now smile jaan” rey was not even interested in icecream. He was so sad that his papa will not spend his time with him,play with him,feed him, tell horrible stories to him,and make him sleep on his favourite bed that is on his papa’s chest. He will miss his papa. No he cannot marry this tanu aunty as my papa is onl mine.
Abhi and tanu were now taking their fourth round. When tanu was proceeding to go in front of abhi for the next phere. There came a sound “ nahiiinnnnnnnnnnnn”. Abhi was so happy that someone was there to stop this marriage. All turned to that direction where the sound came. Even though all were stuneed with the interruption in the marriage what they saw was enough to send shockwaves through their nerves.
Yes, it was our REYANSH. He shouted “no” he wriggled out of pragya’a hold and ran towards abhi. Abhi who was shocked with rey’s shoutings was standing emotionless. Reyansh could not run fast coz of wobbly legs which was just started practicing walking. He stumbled in the carpet and fell down. Before all could go abhi ran before all of them. Tanu was shocked enough as abhi did not even notice that their ghatbhandan was hanging down as abhi ran towards reyansh.
Abhi who could not see reyansh’s tears ran to him without thinking about others. He took rey in his arms and checked his legs and hands.
Abhi “ jaan you did not get hurt right? Is it paining?” reyansh nodded in negative. His eyes were glistening with tears. He hugged abhi tightly around his neck and buried his head in his shoulders. Abhi was confused with his behavior. Whenever reynsh was sad or scared he does like this. He asked his son “ what is wrong jaan? Why r u crying?”. Rey “ papa… please.. leave me.. don’t” abhi was confused “ why baba I wont leave u” rey was crying hard burying his head further “ papa mama said.. after marriage.. aap wont come” abhi “ no rey I will be with u forever now don’t cry I cant see u crying” even abhi now had tears in his eyes. Rey “ papa app please.. shaadi.. don’t do” abhi was stunned. He was his son only. No one can ever understand him like rey does. He now decided I wont let the place of rey’s father to anyone. Its only his. Reyansh will grow with him idolizing him, playing with him, fighting with him for the last paratha, pranking him with his sister, oh iss sister kahan se aayega,, no doubt my and pragya’s daughter. Reyansh is only my son. With his determination he turned to the pandit.
Abhi “ panditji dinner time hogaya so please u call ur family and ur wife to know whether they had dinner meanwhile I will finish this drama” pandit “ but beta ji stopping the muhurat is not good sign” abhi with attitude “ oh come on panditji we r in 21st century muhurat comes only when our wife wishes. Who is my wife itself is a doubt now so how come muhurat can go it can go u first go do ur work I will finish my work”
All were stunned enough so they cant open their mouth.
Abhi directly went to pragya still with reyansh in his arms. He was rocking rey continuously. He asked “ pragya can u please give ur precious ten minutes for me and our son?”. She didn’t know why whether the way he said ‘our son’ or the hope he had seen his eyes or the crying face of both father and son she went with without a word. They both came outside the hll and stood in a lawn. Abhi was pampering rey to stop him crying. Pragya had a small smile seeing that “ how I wish time stops here?”
Abhi started to speak after making rey comfortable in his arms” pragya you did see what rey asked what do u think about it?” pragya with hesitation “ abhishek rey is still a kid he is just thinking ou as his father when time goes he will move on so don’t take serious of his words” abhi got angry “ so do u mean to that my son has never felt me as his father” the way he said ‘ my son’ pragya’s mouth was closed. Pragya “ abhi aisa nahi hai he is still a kid it is ur life sarla aunty thinks ur life is with tanu. So u have to marry her” abhi “ yes u r right sarla aunty thinks like that but what about me I am no thinking like that. To me tanu is not my correct pair. To me u r my better half and u will be” pragya with shock applied on her face “ what?” abi with more confidence “ yes pragya I love u only you” pragya shouted “ abhishek stop it just stop it.” Abhi “ why? Why should I stop? Tell the crrect reason”
Pragya “ abhishek it is not easy” abhi “ no pragya it is simple than the Pythagoras theorem I love u I want to marry you I want to be rey’s first hero. I want to be our daughter’s first love. I want to be a good father”pragya “ what our daughter?”. Abhi with all smiles “ yaa u don’t want a daughter. Rey definitely want a sibling hey na rey?” he asked to the sleeping rey. Pragya “ abhishek this is not right forget rey’s words go and get married atleast tanu and sarla aunty will be happy” abhi “ but I wont be happy pragya my happiness lies in u “ pragya with defeated face” abhishek please understand rey is not ur child as tanu said he is illegitimate..” before she could finished abhi shouted at the top of his voice “ pragya”
Pragya was startled with his shouting “ abhishek” abhi “ enough pragya said enough reyansh is not illegitimate I don’t know who is his biological father but I do know that now I am reyash’s father and I will be. He is my son reyansh abhishek mehra understand? Pragya I love u please don’t complicate these things just say ur consent that’s enough please for reyansh’s sake?”
Pragya listened to him with tears.she didn’t expected this outburst from abhi. Her heart swelled withhappiness there is someone now who will takecare of ansh just like she did. Buut the truth did haunt her. Pragya with shaking voice “ abhi rey is not my son” abhi was shocked beyond his wits “ what?”. His hands automatically went around rey to hold him tight as he feared the upcoming truth will separate them
They were standing silently staring at each other without knowing what to do with this new unexpected truth
After some time,
Abhi came inside the marriage hall with a determined face. All were seated in their chairs waiting for abhi and pragya to return. Abhi had his sehra on. As soon as he entered he announced gaining everyone’s attention “ I am gng to marry.. TANU”. All were shocked abhi continued” tanu sit on the mandap lets continue the marriage panditji ayiye”
