Superb update'though I felt that MICHI morning after talk was a bit myopic, I will get to that later. And I just love your New Year Resolution and most of us what have loved that far more than the update I think
Sally continues to be the confounding best. She simply loves to hate Prachi. She rattles Prachi to see her at her worst, can't stop herself from winding her and unsettling her and on the same level is concerned about her also. If her blow hot, blow cold attitude is confusing Prachi it is affecting Sally also. If Prachi needs to talk about Sally to someone, the need for Sally to talk and unload all her baggage seems much larger here. I now have my doubts that Shweta is going to be the one person who will be lending ears to both these girls. I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to this aspect of the story. I just cannot wait for that to happen. OMG I have started sounding like a broken record. Its time I zip it up'
The night of shocks and bewilderment seems to be having no end for Milind. If he was left wondering as to why Prachi drank, her anger at the assumption that he is leaving again left him completely surprised. Milind is an intelligent man and he was on the right track when he judged that someone or something gave Prachi the idea that he is going away again soon. Later her sexy and uninhibited avatar left him flabbergasted and wondering rightfully what happened to his shy little kitten. Unaware that the very word was responsible for the start of his Prachi acting out so unlike her through out the night. And with it began a long list of whys for Milind. Why she drank; Who or what gave her the idea that he is going away again; Why the desperate need for Prachi to assert her claim on him; What made her think that he doesn't want her anymore; What happened while he was gone that her mind and emotions are in such a turmoil? If Milind was completely confounded by Prachi by her actions and words, Shweta was also not behind in her shock to see her dear daughter-in-law in the inebriated state. But she contained it as she was well aware that it was neither the right time nor the right place to question Milind about Prachi or the happenings.
The update had the best interaction ever between Prachi and Milind. Whether it was the car scene or the later on interaction in the bedroom it was brilliant. The way you described MICHI's reactions was just outstanding. The part where Prachi staked her claim on Milind for me was the highlight, it was written superbly.
And now the morning after conversation'.Prachi reacted to the T, she was everything that was expected of her'.disappointed, disgusted, ashamed and floundering. Though Milind was the perfect pillar of strength and was able to calm her but the focus of the whole conversation was just on her drinking and her acting unlike her. He not even raised any of the other questions that were plaguing him through out the night. And frankly this is where I found the conversation to be single-tracked. Good but missing a lot. May be I am jumping the gun here and the conversation is all set to continue in the next update, but as for now this is what felt'.
Eagerly in wait of the next update and all ready to eat my words'.
