Continuing on my series of If the ... today it's "If I were the CVs themselves ... how I would have taken this track forward"... I saw a lot of negativity and despair over the current track... although the end is unknown... so here goes... please treat me with kindness.. this is my first OS!

The price of loyalty

She was scared... she had to make a decision now... he was too powerful... He could hurt her and her family...and her village... she had to do this... She had to go to him... of course there was no other option... she hoped he would treat her with care and respect... after all... While he threatened her she had sensed a deep attraction...

 

Mala walked out of her house in Chandangarh into the night leaving her husband and a young child.

 

For the sake of her village and family..

She was scared... Of course she had to be... He was powerful ... and he could destroy her and all that was dear to her... of course he had his weaknesses... But she could not bank on that ... She had waited too long ... Too long for this moment ... She had to do it now...

 

The marriage was the right time... It hadn't been the right time so far... There were too many unknowns ... too much danger... The village , her family... and those crocodiles ( yes she knew of them ...)... Now was the time...

This was the turning point ... she had to move and take a stand and she had to do this. After years...of being quiet... she had to take a stand...

Mala stepped out of her house into the darkness... she was going to meet her son ... and his bride on his wedding day, atleast see them... after all these years. The phone call had set off a hundred thoughts in her head and she had decided that the time had come to meet her child and husband and tell them the truth. Would they understand?

 She pulled her ghungat more firmly over her head... She was dressed like one of the villagers... And she didn't want anyone to see her. Leave alone the Thakur... she had pleaded a headache... and asked not to be disturbed for half a day... She hoped that her husband wouldn't come by.

Paro was getting ready to be a bride ... Yet again... And she didn't want this... But what would she do? That jallad wanted to take out her family and her village... the only alternative seemed to be marriage... She hated him for what he had done to her... but there seemed to be no other alternative...

Of course under the jallad facade , there was a heart... That beat for his father and the mother who had run away...but... she didn't want this marriage.

Mala stepped into the haveli..,.she called her brother in law , he was waiting to escort her in... 

"Please cover your face bhabhi "he said and she pulled her ghunghat firmly over her head... 

He took her into the haveli at the door to Rudra's room... and went in search of Rudra... 

She looked around , the memories overwhelming her... Being a bride here...having Rudra , Rudra playing in the house ,  her nephews and nieces...

Rudra was getting dressed when chachaji walked in 

"Someone is here to see you " he said..."I do not want to see anyone" Rudra said... he did not want this marriage... he liked Paro ... no stuff that... he really liked her... but she was not yielding... he loved his job more... maybe he should go talk to her once more?

Mala waited...she heard a voice... Oh god that was Mohini...  she hadn't changed over the years... She had got worse... Mohini was asking if Rudra was ready... Oops... She should move away from here before she came...

Mala moved... Bumped into Sumer... her ghungat slipped

Sumer said "Can't you watch where you are going ?. 

Mohini turned and caught a glimpse of the woman...her mind started working furiously... 

"Mala" ... She said... But  Mala had already fled... up the stairs and out of sight... To the only place she could hide... a room full of women in ghoonghat...The bride's room...Mala went in... she couldn't see the bride... But she decided to hide there...

Mohini came in to talk to Paro... She was all spice... just then the door opened... The women scattered...Mohini said , Rudra is here ... to see his bride... "Let's leave the couple for one last time.. although its bad luck for the couple to see each other before the wedding "she said ... leaving with one last dart at Rudra!

Everyone left the room... except Mala who cowered in the shadows... Her Rudra... After so many years... he had grown into a handsome young man. He was dressed in wedding finery.. her eyes clouded over...

Paro sat looking at her reflection... a bride once again in a span of 10 days... The memories of the last time she was made a bride came back ,mami sa , Thakurayin sa,Rukmini ,she wished they were here... She wished she was dead , she wished she was anywhere but here... Sobs racked her slim frame... she was lost. 

Rudra approached her... he saw her tears... for a moment his countenance softened... but then his eyes hardened again... his job was on the line because of this slip of a girl... 

"Parvati... this is your last chance... sign the papers... and you will be free" he said...ll you need to do is indict Thakur sa and his people...  "You will be free of this house and marriage"...

"No... I will not do anything to endanger my village...Thakur sa and his wife are like parents to me...and I will NOT endanger my family - my mamisa and the village... You will kill them all... I am dead already... you killed my husband and you ruined me... this marriage cannot do more to me." said Paro 

"Then we are going ahead with this marriage ,I will make you pay for it "he said!

Rudra left the room  in frustration and banged the door..

Mala was shocked.. Rudra's bride is Paro ... She is alive  and Rudra wants some evidence against the Thakur her husband. This cannot be ...She saw herself ... 14 years back... Marriage or family and village...

She had no one to turn to then... but Paro had her... She stepped out of the shadows and called "Paro"!
