"I cannot believe you can be so utterly..." Mandira was jittery in her anger
She had spoken to him 4 days ago when he was in Ullal and delivered a long breathless hour long sermon of how he should quit chasing Trisha
THIS after he told her clearly he wasnt ready to move on
Now she was in Bangalore, rushed, flew down to see him after Rachit texted his Mom last night and Mandira's SIL texted her causing her to flying.
The girl she didnt care for, the girl whose father had been the cause for her son being shunned, her husband's passing, her son losing his credibility with his father, was back home
Or so Ashvin claimed
She was unable to react for a while, the gravity of the shock was so enormous
Trisha was asleep on her bed, in her room
Sharanbir's driver had come up at 1 PM sharp asking if "Madam wanted to go"
He had told the guy "she didnt want to go"
Nothing more was said
"I dont even get you any more Ashvin. I mean... why go through ALL this if you had to start living with her?" Mandira was in tears
"You need to calm down" he hissed
"Why did you even go bring her back?" Mandira was distraught
"You are over reacting" he whispered
"I was just about to begin clearing everything up with Dadu. He was understanding and helpful. You screwed it all up. He is going to hate you for this"
"did he tell you he told Trisha I had another fall?" he asked calmly
"Stop it Ashvin!! Dont implicate Dadu just because you go off an do a moronic thing"
"I am NOT... she is here. I want it to be that way. I am sorry it doesnt align with your plans. But I have screwed up enough"
"You say that every time and go off and do something like this" Mandira whimpered "Hamari baat kya hui batao mujhe? U said u sent her back. You said you didnt want Prakash Shanbag to suffer anymore. You said this was a foolish plan"
"i said all that, and I also told you I love her"
"You dont even know what love is" Mandira was pompous
"i dont believe it"
"I think you are still drug addled" (she meant the pain killers for the shoulder)
Ashvin's face paled
"i didnt mean it that way beta" she whispered, getting up quickly and following him
"Mom.. please" he was deeply hurt
"You know I didnt mean it"
"Maybe not... but I have a fabulous history with drunkeness and inebriation and... know about overdose, so it was a bad choice of words" he said
"Seeing her everyday of your life will help you forget all that?" "batao mujhe?"
