A true story with little bit changes.
They decided to meet far from their respective homes. He agreed because he wanted to test the girl and see if she is worth him or not. She came to see her love at least once. She was not sure of seeing him again and he had no thought of meeting her again.
On seeing her for the first time he still had no thought of deep feelings. She in her first meet decided that he is going to be the one and only for her no matter what?
It took two and a half years for them to convince their respective families to agree for their marriage. It was like a hell broke out in their families. His family was adamant for this relation, reason being they were from two different zones. Totally opposite, like north and south. AT her home it was more difficult to convince as she was the liability of her mother and younger brother. Everyone else in the relation were eager to point out their fingers. She disclosed her decision to marry the boy of her choice or else would stay unmarried.At last her mother agreed to talk to the boy once before saying ok to the relation.
Mother: “You and my daughter are in long distance relation and want to make it permanent, but before that I want to ask you something.”
Boy : ” Go ahead.”
Mother: “You are thinking for present but five years from now when you people will age a little you might find her unattractive or may get bored of her, then what?”
Boy : “No. I made up my mind and there won’t be any such thing. be assured on from my side.”
One fine day, two years after they met, a date was finalized for families to meet.Girl’s mother, brother and two uncles and the girl went to meet the boys family. The boy and the girl had planned out everything. Everything was going good but as they say, one doesn’t get everything so easily;the boy’s family refused. The girl was heart broken.She tried to convince the boy for the last time.
Girl : “ Love, I will see what I can do to re convince my mother and uncles but please do take care of yours.”
Boy : “Don’t Worry about them. Just ask your people to act according to my family’s demand and I will see if they show over smartness this time, I will abduct you and marry against their will.”
It was a long procedure to make the family to agree but determination and adamant nature of the girl melted her mother.
Mother : “Your father left me alone to fight against all the odds of life. If only he was alive matters would have been different.”
With this she cried and stayed quiet for few days but eventually gave in, for the sake of her daughter’s happiness. Daughter was happy and ignorant of her mother’s pain. How hard she must have felt for going against her decision and to face all the criticism and talks of the family and relatives. Meanwhile, the boys parents were adamant to not to give in. But to his rescue his grand parents came in. They convinced everyone and the marriage took place.
Later the mother in law told the girl how much pain and backbiting she had gone through but for the sake of her son she accepted her. First few years went smoothly then as every marriage has, they had some quarrels but made up every time. Girl was the one to say sorry every time and take the brunt of the heated situation. Still, everything was sailing smooth. But the girl saw the boy with another girls and had a doubt.
Girl : ” Are you in other relationship?”
Boy : ” have you gone nuts? Where these thoughts come from?”
Girl : ” Its just that I’ve seen you with others and people we know, are talking about you and them.”
Boy : ” Either you shut your bloody mouth up or get lost.”
These fights grew and their doubts deepened. It was not that she doubted in vein. There was a fire which led to the smoke. The boy hit the girl many times in these quarrels which by now have became fights. Three major occasions when the boy hit her for other girls. One day he threw plate on her face, but realized his mistake and said sorry. All she forgave and thought to start new afresh. Then one day she got a call from an unknown number, where some one told her that her husband was cheating on her. She could not believe herself.
Girl : ” Someone called and threatened me to publicize your name and that you won’t get work. What’s all this? who could it be?”
Boy : ” Don’t take it seriously. In my field I have many competitors.”
Everything was forgotten. Life sailed as smooth as it could. One year later, she again got a call and this time it was not to her but to her father in law. Which by chance she picked up.
Caller : ” Check his bag. Proof.”
Before she could ask anything, the phone hanged.There was no one home that day. She went to her husband’s study and looked for his bag. A thought crept up in her mind that may be the person on the phone is right, because from past one and a half year the boy was not allowing her to touch his phone. Even changed the password also. Her hands trembled and the scene in front of her swing around. She some how managed herself and with her heart thudding in her throat, ready to jump out at the given moment reached for the bag.With hands shivering now like there was something wrong with her, she opened the bag. There was a red envelope addressed to him. Sender had drawn a heart in place of sender’s name. It fell down from her trembling hands. She had no guts to open it. She then looked for some more proofs. Her breathing became uneven and she felt uneasy. There were some more letters addressed to him. The sender mentioned her name as his wife. The depth of love from both sides showed how cheap her feelings were. Her sacrifice for him was forgotten so easily. The gifts exchanged were kept with so much care while the gifts she gave were no where to be seen in house. For everything he had an excuse.
She knew this time also he will make a stupid one. That day they were to go for his parents anniversary party. As he was not home, she called him.
Girl : ” I am not coming with you to the party.”
Boy : ” What has happened? You sound so dull and rude.”
She hung up the phone and went to pack her luggage. He Came home early than expected. He tried to talk but she was quiet. Then he saw his bag lying open in the study and understood what has gone wrong. He tried to talk but she refused.
Girl : ” Now I know why you were saying that you are bored from me. And wanted me to leave.“ Paused.” You should have told me straight away. There was no need for the scene to be created.”
Boy : ” You are making an issue of such a little matter.”
Girl : ” Little issue?! Have you not married her secretly?”
Boy : silent.
Girl : ” I will go back to mother and you can be happy with her.”
Boy : silent.
Girl : ” Why are you silent? say Say something. Tell me its all a joke.”
Boy : ” No.”
Girl : ” Leave her then.”
Boy : ” That is impossible. I can.t leave her nor I can live without you.”
This took a shape of an ugly fight. She was mentally and emotionally more hurt then physically. He was blaming her for what ever had happened. He told her that it was her who pushed him towards other girl by trying to control him. Telling him not to ditch her. And that she want to be his soul mate.
Boy : ” I made a huge mistake in marrying you.”
Girl : ” I’m sorry, marrying me is a huge hassle.”
Boy : ”Can you go somewhere else and be stupid?”
Girl : ” You are just one insult away from starting a war.”
Boy : ” Are you insane?”
Girl : ” I know! Isn’t it great?”
Boy : ” I regret lot of things. This conversation is on the top of the list.”
Girl : ” I trusted you.”
Boy : ” Well then, you can’t blame me, can you? It was your mistake.”
Girl : ” Now that I made it weird, I will make my exit.”
The love between them which bloomed irrespective of the distance between their cities now decayed. The reason he may give any but she knew in her heart that her mom said was right. Exact five years later her dream had crumbled down of which she came to know after three years. SHe reminded him of just one thing he once said during the courtship, that what if she got bored of seeing his face daily? only the difference is that it was him who got bored. Waving him her last good bye was harder then she thought. Tears in eyes which refused to fall down in front of him, lips quivered, voice was choked in throat. She never thought it will end like this.
