“He wants to meet me, but why?” asked Nisha when Vivan told her that Dr. Rajat had requested them to help his son meet his beloved and clarify certain things.
“I really dont know,” replied Vivan,” what clarity he can give you but if you would like to meet him, then I can have a word with Dr. Rajat about it.”
“I am not sure about it,” said Nisha feeling worried,” we didnt end things on a good note and now…………”
“There is absolutely no need for you to feel scared to face him,” said Diya,” you always tried to be nice to him but some people are just like that.”
“And thats why,” said Vivan looking straight into Diya’s eyes,”its a wise choice to not let them hamper your life in anyway. The love you had for them should not become a cage of thorns for you which keeps you trapped in thoughts of guilt and shame.”
“You seem to understand my pain real quick,” thought Diya,” I feel as if I dont have to bother to put on a mask of strength in front of you. You always recognise the fear in my eyes and the worry in my heart. I dont know how you do this but you never fail in surprising me by your excellent choice of words.”
“I never loved him,” said Nisha,”but yes, I did feel hurt when he disrespected me in every possible way, I felt betrayed when he didnt honor my feelings and I felt scared when he refused to mind his own business.”
“Its okay,” said Diya placing her hand on her shoulder,” Just let it go. Its done and over now.”
“If only,” said Nisha,” I could make him realise what he did to me, would our meeting be of any good. But keeping in mind the way he always treats others I dont think that I should meet him ever again.”
“Is this what you are talking about?” asked Arjun showing her the bracelet with Ahan’s name written on it.
“Where did you get this from?”asked Nisha feeling shocked on seeing it.
“He brought it to the store the other day,” said Arjun,” and asked us to cast some spell on it to attract the woman who wears it. When we told him that its not what we do, he offered us a huge sum of money for it.”
“Is he out of his mind?” said Diya.
“I too thought the same,” said Arjun angrily,” this is evil and insane.”
“I will meet him,” said Nisha taking the bracelet from his hands.
“But why?” Arjun literally yelled at her,” Havent you already had enough? Why even give him another chance? Or maybe these annoying acts of his have been successful in melting your heart!”
“I see,” said Nisha holding back her tears,” that you are concerned about me but this time again you fail to understand me. I want to meet him because………..”
“Because?” said Arjun,” Tell me why you want to meet him.”
“Because,”she said to herself,” If I dont, he will blame you for it and use all his financial strength to shut down your business. Thats the last thing I would ever want. Ahan wasnt pleased to see us together at the hotel and he couldnt even stand me praising you. You dont realise this but your meeting with Dr. Rajat wasnt a coincidence.”
“Because,” said Nisha looking up to face his eyes,” I want to have the final word with him.”
“You are again leaving things unsaid,” spoke Arjun,” there is a lot more to this.”
“No,” said Nisha drinking some water,” Thats all.”
