Swara didnt know if she heard it right, is it really happening she wondered , the fact he agreed to give her divorce surprised her .But why did he change all of a sudden,she didnt know the answer to that yet.
Then her mind stumbled upon the fact on what if it was his plan all the time, force herself to ask for divorce then pretend to give it making himself innocent in the eyes of everyone including her family. But he said condition.What could it be , what sort of game is playing, she had no clue.
She looked directly at him to gauge his reaction but she cant read very well maybe because all she saw was sadness and pain depicted in his face especially his eyes it was filled with sadness as he said those lines ,or maybe he is that good of an actor.After all he fooled her into thinking of him as innocent guy named Kissan.
" Why do you think i will agree to this stupid condition." Swara spoke up as she decided she need to know more about his plan before rejecting it, She couldnt trust him.
" You dont know the condition yet Swara , arent you curious what it is, what is it the one thing that you need to do to be finally free from this marriage and be free of me the person you distrust the most " Sanskar spoke up and Swara saw the business side of the man, She learnt from her family he was one of the prominent business man in Kolkatta and it was evident in the way she found herself wavering.
" Dont worry Swara, i can hire the best lawyer in the world and will get you the divorce you want, No need to listen to him anymore .Let's leave" Sahil spoke up and Swara realized she had totally forgot about his presence beside her. She also didnt like him interfering either.
" Sahil stay out of it. You dont want to mess with me right now. And if you hired the best lawyer then i will make the lawyer back out in an day or hire someone better . You dont know me so dont underestimate me or the extent i will go for my loved ones especially Swara". Sanskar voice raised a little as he answered Sahil.
" It okay Sahil let me hear what he got to say ,So what your condition that will guarantee my freedom " Swara tried to defuse the situation before the got into a fight
" Simple i need 30 minutes , No just 15 minutes of your time.I need to talk to you, and you need to listen to every word i say.And even after that if you want divorce i will sign the paper right then and there ." Sanskar voice was answered with confidence that swara was surprised .
What does he think of himself she wondered , what could possibly change in just 15 minutes. She knew he tried to kill her and she wont trust him .And if that all she need to do to be finally free she will do it right this instant she decided
" Okay..Talk i am listening.." Swara answered curious of what he could possibly say to change her mind.
" Not now. Not when you are angry,tired and restless .So whatever i say to you will not get through to you. I cant waste those precious minutes by talking to you now. Let talk two days from today and you choose the time ,but not now . And i will ask my lawyer to prepare the divorce paper by then ."Sanskar replied back to her
"Okay, Be here by 10 AM then. And bring the divorce papers with you, because you cant change my mind Mr Sanskar Maheshwari. Now Leave my house "Swara spoke up desperately holding on to the need for distance ,she didn't want him to change her mind in those two days .
" No Swara, i will prepare the divorce papers , He might betray you once again ."Sahil once again interfered but Swara found herself trusting him given the fact he was the one who had the best interests of her in his mind .
" Okay " the one word from Swara was spoken and Sanskar barely managed to keep his nervousness from being visible .
Sahil saved Swara and when Sanskar first met him. He was so thankful towards him until he showed his true colors by trying to separate them both .
He wants to scream at Swara not to trust Sahil, but if he showed that then it will increase her trust on Sahil not the other way. It took all his supreme efforts not to lash at him everytime he interferedm But he cant lose his mind and slip up in his anger not when Swara trust is on the line.
"Okay but first my lawyer and i will personally go through the papers before signing them, also I will leave tomorrow morning as it already late "Sanskar spoke up as he didn't want swara to distrust him .And yet wanted to ensure Sahil didn't tamper with the divorce papers
With that he walked inside not waiting for her reply back. Leaving an happy Sahil , confused Swara . Sahil then tried to take swara out to propose as he planned originally but Swara simply refused to go with him today.
With no choice left but still happy about the recent developments in Swara life,Sahil left ,
Swara entered her new home and it looked like everyone was aware of the truth of Kissan being Sanskar . As they all remained too silent as if trying to gauge her reaction first before responding . Then when she told them about Kissan being Sanskar ,her father told her ,he already apologized to them for the deception today ,thus earning their forgiveness .
Her own mom seems like a stranger to her eyes when all she said was for swara to go and freshen up for dinner . She entered her new room and closed the door. Relieved that soon she will be free from this marriage but still she cant be completely happy for some reason. Maybe because her heart realized that her better half was in deep pain due to today events.
A few hours later after an awkward dinner , she got out of her room to get water when she happen to overhear her mom talking with her dadi . Shedding lights in to their silence approach the whole day.
" I dont like it Sharmistha , I know Sanskar asked us not to interfere , But listen to me she will regret it big time when her memory comes back" Her dadi was speaking to her mother .
" I know Maa, Swara will be heartbroken when her memory comes back, knowing she hurt Sanskar , she will never be able to forgive herself. But what can we do maa when she doesn't remember him now." Her mother sounded helpless and worried .
" What with this divorce topic again, i have only two granddaughter and how many more marriage do i need to see in my old age. Remember last time when she came back home separated from him. She didnt eat ,drink nor sleep.She was acting like someone who lost the will to live and that will happen if the divorce happens again and her memory comes back, mark my words " her dadi spoke up confident in her reaction.
" It wont happen maa, i trust Sanskar he will be able to convince her " her mother trust in him made her curious about him as well
"He better be able to make her listen. And i told him today i will speak some sense into Swara but he asked me not too as Swara needs her family to stand by her side. That why i kept quiet " her dadi words made her aware that even her family was on his side
" Okay I will check in on Sanskar and give him food ,other wise he won't eat , he is my son after all and I should go before Shona comes out of her room . " her mom replied to her dadi
Swara quickly hid from her mom view when she walked out of the kitchen. She knew her family was not on her side but to know they are keeping quiet because of him was too much to bear. Without realizing what she is doing,she quickly followed her mom.
She wanted to know what he is going to say to her mom to make her think of him as her son. She took position near the window from where she can hear their conversation still remain hidden from their view.
" Maa what are you doing here, Please come inside. Swara wont like it if she saw you here maa. She already hates me a lot and right now she needs you to be her support " Sanskar voice greeted her mother .
" I know Sanskar, Dont worry she is still in her room. I will leave before she notices i am not there. I brought you food .Do eat something before you sleep . It not good to sleep on an empty stomach.."swara heard her mother speaking to him .
" I am not hungry maa, leave it i will eat later "he answered back which only made her mother stubborn and insist she wont leave until she saw him eat ,which made him comply .
" Sanskar, did you inform your family.They will be worried"her mother voice rang again after a few minutes of silence
"Dont worry maa.I just got off the phone from my mom. She wanted me to go back their right now but i finally somehow convinced her ,I will come tomorrow "Sanskar replied back .
" Are you leaving because swara said something ?" Swara froze when her mom asked the question and waited for him to blame her .
" Nothing like that maa. " he denied her mom charges . And then she heard her mom bidding him good bye ,swara almost returned back home when she heard her mom speak again .
" Swara will change her mind right?." Swara was surprised when her mother voice was bit unsure .
" She will maa , Trust me and you please dont worry " Sanskar replied back .
" I do trust you beta " her mom spoke up and left her dida house and swara managed to stay hidden till she was out of sight before coming out of her hiding place .
No one seem to have noticed her sneaking out or back inside the house and Swara was more confused after hearing their conversation.
Everyone made it seem like she cant live without him.Why cant she ,Swara bose lived this long without Sanskar Maheswari ,so what could have changed in this one year that everyone is claiming she wont survive without him ,she wondered .
She wanted to prove them all wrong , She will live happily even after the divorce which would make them aware her world doesn't revolve around him .
What if your memory comes back and unlike what you believe , Your husband and family was proved right and you were proved wrong.What will you do.Breaking a relationship is easy but building it back is hard ,her mind choose that moment to create flicker of uncertainty .
And at that moment Swara wanted to remember everything,not just him pointing a gun at her , she realized she cant make an hasty decision and regret it later.She wished and hoped she remembers.
But still her memory refused to return.She heard her door open and immediately closed her eyes to feign sleep. She dont want to hear her mom questioning her decision once again,and maybe she knew deep inside if she listened to her mom.
Her resolve to divorce him will weaken and she cant let that happen. She trusted Kissan and he betrayed her trust, and now she wont trust him again.No matter what anyone says .
Sharmistha Gadodia thought her daughter was sleeping,so she gently placed the glass of milk she brought for her on the desk,covered her with the blankets and turned around to leave. But the voice of her daughter halted her
" Why do you trust him more than me maa" Swara barely whispered but her mom stopped in her tracks
Sharmistha turned around and saw her precious daughter still confused as ever. Looking hopefully at her for more answers. Sharmistha knew now is the time, if she cant talk her daughter out of it.Then all might be lost soon .
" No Shona , I dont trust Sanskar more than you. But i know Sanskar while you dont even remember him."Sharmistha answered back but her daughter had inherited her stubbornness that she refused to believe her .
" Why dont you believe when i say he tried to kill me" Swara asked her mom ,wondering how could her mom fail to believe her .Dadi ,her dad and even Ragini her new found sister disbelief she understood but her mom that hurt .
" Because Shona, As i said i know Sanskar and he would rather die than seeing you get hurt and how will he try to kill you .Also you dont know the whole incident." Sharmistha tried explaining but she already knew her daughter wasn't willing to listen
" Leave it maa..No one is going to believe me ,not even my own mom. I wish dida was here , why did she have to go to US to be with her sister when I needed her , and why didn't she even come home when I went missing ,does she no longer care " Swara voice broke into a sob as she missed her dida who would have taken her side in an heartbeat.
" Because your dida didn't know about your incident ,I wanted to tell her but Sanskar was the one who refused to believe you were dead and kept us from worrying her .
Why don't I give you her number and you can talk with her later but Shona even your dida trusts Sanskar with you ,other wise she won't have left her house in his name . You do remember how she always promised to leave the house under your name but in the end she left it in his name before leaving to US because she knew your happiness belongs with him " Sharmistha told her daughter and tried to leave her room ,hoping may be her mother may get through . But she couldn't leave without speaking her mind either
" Can i say something and you promise to listen to me once "Sharmistha asked as she sat beside her daughter . At her daughter nod she finally spoke from her heart hoping her daughter would listen to her this time
" Your angry because i trust Sanskar ,but no one in this world has trusted him more than you Shona. You trusted him over your Sister, you trusted him when his whole family didnt even believe him . There was a time when you father didnt trust me and we got separated briefly .At the time I understood the importance of trust in an married life.
So all i am asking is you to trust him one more time.I know him disguising himself as kissan broke your trust but just try to
trust him one more time in spite of your misgivings .
Dont go with a decision set on mind when you meet him ,but try to listen to him with an open mind and i am sure you will change your mind. But i am your mother Shona, so even if you didnt change your mind , i will still be on your side." Sharmistha spoke up and left
And it made Swara more confused than she was before. The realization even her dida trusted him acts as the first seed of unrest in her mind as she wondered if she was wrong .
The fact he agreed to leave dida house without a fight even when it was on his name ,just like leaving his house for her made wonder why he always listens to her unreasonable demands . And that night she stayed awake for a long time lost in her thoughts before finally falling asleep.
