As they were in each other's arms treasuring their special moment, he saw the person at the door. Suddenly, his smile fell and he put her down on the ground. She looked at him confused and he motioned her to see to the door. She turned around to see and the earth below her feet pulled away. They let go of each other's hands and stood there scared. "andar aao," the person firmly stated. Meher stepped forward, "babuji…woh…," she fumbled when he interrupted her, "abhi keh abhi andar aao…tume ek baar baat kehne se samaj mein nahi aati kya?" he said. She turned to look at Harman and he nodded telling her to do as lalit said. He walked up and joined her and they both walked towards lalit. He let them in first and followed them into the living room after closing the back door. "yeh sabh kya hai meher? Raat keh doh bajrahe hai aur tum dono garden mein iss waqt. Kya hai yeh sabh?" lalit asked. "babuji jaisa aap sooch rahe hai waise kuch nahi hai. woh hume neend nahi aarahi thi toh bas aise hi," meher replied scared. "Toh aabh tumne jhoot bhi bolna shuru kardiya hai? kya humne tume yehi sikaya hai?" lalit asked her. Meher didn't know what to say. She didn't want to lie to him but what was going to tell him. Of course she can't tell him the truth because she didn't think this was the right time. The problems between them had just been solved and she didn't want to involve the family so soon. "meher…main jawaab ka intezaar karaha hoon," lalit said. "uncle meher saach hi kehrahi hai. Hum bas baat hi karahe the," haram told him. "tum dono koh kya lagtha keh main itna bewakoof hoon? mujhe abhi keh abhi saach batao!" lalit told them getting angry. Meher just stood there with her head down and Harman stepped forward, "theek hai uncle. Saach yeh hai keh main aur meher ek dusre se pyaar karte hai," Harman said as lalit looked at him shocked. Meher looked up at Harman disbelief. She couldn't believe that he just told her father. Omg! Aabh kya hoga? She thought. Lalit turned to meher, "yeh joh kehraha hai woh saach hai?" lalit asked. "babuji main…woh…aap koh…," meher mumbled scared what to say. "ha ya na?" lalit yelled. She jerked back seeing him angry. "ha," she slowly said as lalit was more shocked. "kya yehi sikaya hai humne tume? Yehi sanskaar hai tumare? Mujhe tumse yeh umeed nahi thi meher," lalit said as tears filled her eyes. "uncle please iss mein meher ki kohi galati nahi hai…aap hume galat mat samjiye," Harman replied. "Bas! Bahut hogaya! Main apni beti se baat karaha hoon. Tum beech mein na bolo toh accha hai," lalit yelled. At that moment, the family members joined them wondering what was wrong. "kya huwa ji? Yeh sabh kya hai?" gayatri asked. "yeh tum apni beti se poocho. Tumari beti koh hum school padne bhejte the lekin yeh toh yeh pyaar vyaar keh chakkar mein padgayi hai aur woh bhi iss ladke se," lalit said as everyone looked at meher shocked.
Heer moved next to meher to console her who stood there with tears. "meher yeh sabh kya bol rahe hai tere babuji?" gayatri said. "ma…hum dono ek dusre se pyaar karte hai lekin babuji sabh kuch galat samaj rahe hai," meher said. "yeh kya kohi umar hai pyaar karne ki? Aur agar tum dono pyaar karte the bhi hai toh raat keh iss waqt milne ki kya zaroorat thi?" lalit yelled in anger. "Uncle please…humari ek baar baat sunlijiye. Meher ki kohi galati nahi hai, maine usse bhulaya tha," Harman said. "tujhe humne apna maan kar ghar mein aane diya, rehne diya aur uskeh badle tum humari ghar ki izaat peh haath dhal rahe ho…sharam aani chahiye tume," lalit said. Prem walked up to him, "babuji aap ek minute shant hojayiye…hum baat karte hai," he said. "Itna sabh hogaya aur aap kehrahe hai shant rahe…Come on PB!" preet said. "preet…yeh bahut nazuk mamila hai…we have to be patient," prem said. "nahi PB? Yeh sabh iski wajase huwa hai? how dare he? Kya tumare ma baap ne tume yehi sikaya hai keh dusre keh ghar mein guskar unne dhoka kaise deh," preet said looking at Harman. "please aap mere parents keh baare mein kuch mat boliye," Harman said. "kyun? Kya karlega tu? Tujhe kya laaga keh tu meri behen keh saath kuch bhi karega," preet yelled as he grabbed harman's collar. As the family looked at them shocked, meher ran up to them, "bhai…aap yeh kya karahe hai…chodiye please," she said. "ha preet chod deh…tu yeh kya karaha hai?" kulraj said. Prem also told him to calm down but preet wasn't ready to listen to anyone. Meher tried to get preet away from Harman but he was too strong for her. In the process, meher got pushed and she fell to the ground hitting her head to the side table. "meher," Harman yelled. As he was about to go see her, "tume uski chinta karne ki kohi zaroorat nahi hai…get out! Nikal jao iss ghar se aur don't you dare ever come back!" preet said stopping him. Looking at her, he felt from there. "meher…tu theek toh haina?" gayatri asked quickly walking up to her. "of course ma, main theek kaise nahi hosakthi hoon? mera parivaar mujhse pyaar nahi karte aur mujh peh vishwaas nahi karta lekin main theek hoon," meher said as she stood up with tears flowing down her cheeks. "meher…tum…," heer said when meher interrupted her, "please bhabhi…mujhe rokiye mat…bolne dijiye," she told heer. "meher tu yeh kya bolrahi hai? pagal hogayi hai kya?" gayatri said. "Toh mujhe kya bolna ma? Aap hi batayiye? Jis insaan se main pyaar karti ho usse aap sabh aisa treat karahe hai. Ek baar bhi humari baat nahi sunrahe hai kyun? Humne aisa kya guna kardiya hai? pyaar hi toh karte hai ek dusre se?" meher asked them all. "meher…iss umar mein yeh pyaar sabh sahi nahi hota beta…tu abhi bacchi hai," gayatri told her. "main bacchi nahi ho aur mera pyaar saacha hai," meher yelled. "meher…yeh kya tareeka hai ma se baat karne ka?" kulraj said to her sister. "di…main," she stopped seeing Harman return. Harman was back with his bags to leave. Meher ran up to him. "Harman tum yeh kaha jaarahe hoon?" she asked him. "meher aabh mujhe jaana hoga jab sabh shant hojayenge main phir aake baat karonga," he said. "lekin please Harman mat jao…main sabh koh samjadongi," meher said as she held his hand. "meher…jaane deh isse aur ha agar maine tume humare ghar keh aas paas bhi dekha toh main tume zinda nahi chodonga," preet told him. Harman started to leave and meher turned to her family members, "please Harman koh roklijiye. Uski kohi galati nahi hai…saari galati meri hai usne kuch nahi kiya hai," she pleaded but no one listened to her. She was about to run to him but lalit held her hand, stopping her. "babuji please…mujhe chodiye. Harman rukjao Harman…!" she called out to him. He wanted to stop but he didn't want to make things worse. He feared that if he stayed here then the family members might become angrier about the situation and he might not be able to control it. He felt it was best if he left now and came back a few days to explain things. His feet stopped at her call and he turned to look at her once since he didn't know when he will get to see her again. "Harman….please ek baat meri baat sunlo mat jao," she said looking at him. "main abhi jaaraha hoon but main wapaas aaunga meher…zaroor aaunga," Harman said and left from there with tears in his eyes. Lalit let her hand go and she fell to the ground crying. She wiped her tears and stood up, "Aap sabh bahut bure hai…bahut bure. Maine pyaar kiya toh kya galat kiya. Di ne bhi toh pyaar karke shaadi kithi, aur aabh preet bhai aur ash bhabhi bhi lekin maine pyaar kiya toh galat hai. I hate you…I hate you all!," meher yelled. Lalit's hands touched meher's face and slapped her. She fell to the ground and everyone stood there shocked. "bahut choot dehdiya hai tume issliye hi tum itni batameez hogayi ho," he said.
Heer ran up to meher and she cried hugging heer. Prem walked up to his father, "babuji aap yeh…chaliye yaha se…chaliye," he said and took lalit from there. As prem took lalit, gayatri, preet and kiran followed them. Sitting in the room, "yakeen nahi hota keh humari meher aisa karsakthi hai," gayatri said in disbelief that this was all happening in their house. "yeh sabh uss Harman ki wajase huwa hai, humari meher aisi bilkul bhi nahi thi," preet said angrily. "hume kuch karna hoga warna humari ladki haath se nikal sakthi hai," lalit worried. "aap chinta mat kijiye babuji….aabh meher kuch samaj ne keh haalat mein nahi hai lekin main usse kal baat karonga," prem told them. "preet…tum subhe hote hi phone karke Canada kehliye tickets book karlo…hum wapaas jaarahe hai," lalit said and preet nodded. "lekin aisa achanak aap aisa kyun karahe hai?" gayatri asked. "Agar hum yaha rahenge toh meher iss sabh keh baare mein sooch thi rahegi toh mujhe lagtha hai keh Canada wapaas chale jaana hi accha hoga," lalit stated. "lekin babuji agar hum unn dono koh alag karenge toh kahi meher hum se aur gussa na hojaye…hume bahut shanti se sabh karna hoga," kiran told them. "jaanta hoon…lekin phele hume yaha se jaana hoga," lalit said. "shayad aap theek hi kehrahi hai. Paata nahi keh kya horaha hai humare ghar mein. Jab khushiya aati hai tabh dukh bhi saath leyke aati hai," gayatri said sadly. "ma…aap fikar mat kijiye…mat sabh theek kardonga. Bahut raat hogayi hai aap log aaram karlijiye," prem said and him, kiran and preet left the room. Heer, ashlesha, and kulraj took meher to her room and they all sat on the bed consoling her. "meher please rohna bandkar…dekh tu shant hoja….hum kuch na kuch sooch the hai," heer said. Meher threw herself in heer's arms, "mere saath hi yeh sabh kyun horaha hai bhabhi. Itne dino baad meri zindagi mein kushiya aayi thi aur ek hi pal mein chali bhi gayi," she said. "meher please tu roh mat…babuji shant hote hi main unse baat karti hoon," kulraj told her. "woh nahi manengi di aaj babuji ne pheli baar mujh peh haath utaya aur woh bhi kyun…kyun ki main harman se pyaar karti hoon. kya pyaar karna itni baadi galati hai?," she said as she wept. "nahi meher…pyaar galati nahi hai. Ma babuji bas tumari chinta karte hai bas issliye pareshaan hai aur yeh pareshaani gusse keh roop mein bahar aayi hai. Hum sabh kuch theek kardenge bas tume thoda sabar rakna hoga," ashlesha said. Later, the three ladies put meher to sleep and went to their respective rooms to rest.
She sat in front of the dresser thinking about the events of that night. "paata nahi yeh sabh kya hogaya. Soocha tha keh agar meher aur Harman ek hojayenge toh dono khush rahenge lekin aabh toh sabh problem hogaya," she thought to herself. "bhagwan-ji please sabh theek kardijiye…humari ghar ki khushi wapaas lauta dehjiye," she prayed folding her hands. At that moment, he walked in and seeing him, she turned around, "ma babuji kaise hai?" she asked. "kaise hosakthe hai. itne saalon mein jis beti keh upar unchi awaaz se bhi baat nahi ki uske upar aaj haath utadiya," he said and she felt guilty. She should have told everyone about Harman and meher when she found out about them but would that have made things better? Or worse? She didn't know but she felt guilty that she didn't even tell him. "hume kuch karke sabh theek karna padega," heer said. "meher kaisi hai?" he asked. "bahut rohrahi thi. Baadi mushkil se sohlaya hai," she replied. "babuji ne kal hi Canada wapaas jaane ka faisla kiya hai," he told her. "kya?" she asked shocked. "Ha…preet subhe hote hi tickets book karlega," prem said. "kash yeh sabh nahi hota," she said sadly. "shayad aisa nahi hota agar tum mujhe phele hi saach baata dehti," he said and she looked at him shocked. "prem main woh tume…," she said when he interrupted her, "kyun heer? Agar tum sabh jaanti thi toh baataya kyun nahi? Kyun heer?" he asked. "main tume sabh baata chathi thi prem lekin meher ne mujhse vaada liya tha keh main kisiko kuch nahi baataungi," heer replied. "tumne usse kiya huwa vaada toh nibha diya lekin joh vaada mujhse kiya tha woh?" he asked and she walked up to him to explain. "tume paata hai heer jab si meher choti thi toh har problem mein woh mere paas aati thi aur main uski saari problems solve karde tha. Lekin aaj uske zindagi mein itna sabh hogaya aur usne mujhe kuch bhi nahi baataya aur tum heer. Humne toh ek dusre se vaada kiya tha na keh hum ek dusre se kuch nahi chupa yenge toh aaj kya hogaya heer. Itni baadi baat tumne mujhse chupayi," he said as tears filled his eyes. Meher was the baby of the family and was pampered by everyone in the house, but she was pampered the most by prem. Anytime she got in trouble, she came to prem and he was her savior. But, today, he didn't know anything that was happening in her life. "prem…please aisa nahi hai. aaj bhi meher tumari hi behen hai aur woh tumse nahi toh kisse kahegi," heer said. "aisa hai toh mujhe aabh paata kyun chal raha hai iss sabh keh baare mein. Mujhe nahi paata tha keh humara rishta itna badal gaya hai keh meri behen aabh mujhse apni dil ki baataye bhi nahi kehsakthi hai," prem said. "prem please I am sorry. Mujhe nahi paata tha keh aisa sabh hojayega…main bas meher koh khush dekh na chathi thi," she said. "Tumne mujhe bahut hurt kiya hai heer...meher se bhi zyaada. woh meri behen hai heer…mujhe pura haq tha sabh kuch jaane ka," he said as his voice rose in anger. "prem please aisa mat kaho…mere liye iss duniya mein tum se badkar kuch nahi hai," heer said as she held his hand. "kash yeh saach hota" he said as he took his hand out of her grip and walked out of the room as she stood there with tears rolling down her cheeks.
She walked out of the bathroom to see him sitting on the bed, lost in thoughts. She walked up to him, "don't worry preet…sabh kuch theek hojayega," she said placing a hand on his shoulder. "kaise ash? Sabh itne pareshaan hai. sabh uss Harman ki wajase huwa hai…woh nahi hota toh yeh sabh nahi hota," he said getting angry. "preet please…shant hojao. Meher bhi tu usse pyaar karti hai," she said. "aisa kuch nahi hai ash. Yeh sabh uss Harman ka kiya dhara hai…meher aisi nahi hai," preet said. "nahi preet…dil keh feelings par kisika bas nahi hota. Agar meher koh itna baroosa nahi hota toh woh itni raat koh Harman se milne nahi jaati aur uskehliye sabh ghar walo se ladthi nahi," ash explained. "nahi ash aisa nahi hosaktha…yeh theek nahi hai. meher abhi bahut choti hai," preet said. "shayad tume aisa lagtha hai keh meher abhi bacchi hai lekin joh feelings uske dil mein hai woh toh saach haina," ash said. "nahi…main yeh sabh khabhi nahi hone dunga. Harman ki family sahi nahi hai….tum jaanti hona keh uske parents alag ho chuke hai aur woh apni aunty keh ghar mein rehta hai," he said. "preet…duniya mein sabh tumare jitne lucky nahi hote. Iss mein Harman ki kya galati hai keh uske parents ek dusre keh saath nahi reha paye aur alag hogaye," she said. "shayad uski galati nahi hai lekin wahi sanskaar hi toh usse mile honge na aur kya woh rishton ki hemiyat samaj payega? Future mein kya woh meher aur uske rishte koh responsibly nibha payega" he wondered. "tum aisa kyun sooch rahe ho? Just because uske parents unke rishte koh samaal nahi payi doesn't mean keh woh bhi aisa hi karega," she told him. "ok ash lets say keh woh aisa nahi karega lekin iski kohi guarantee toh nahi haina," preet said. "yeh tum kehrahe ho preet. Ek baat poocho? Tum mujhe leyne India aaye the na kya tumare paas kohi guarantee thi keh main tumare saath zaroor aungi…nahi na? lekin phir bhi tum aaye…issi koh pyaar kehte haina preet. Pyaar mein kohi guarantee nahi hoti…sharat nahi hoti…bas ehsaas hota hai," she said as he looked at her. He knew what she was saying was true but meher was his little, baby sister. Though, they have always been more like friends, she was still his siter. "main jaanti ho keh tumare liye yeh sabh samaj na mushkil hai lekin meher keh baare mein soocho…uski haalat roh roh keh bahut buri hai," she continued. "paata nahi kya sahi hai aur kya galat lekin main meri behen koh aisa nahi dekhsaktha…usse khush karne kehliye kuch toh zaroor karna padega," he said. "agar tum meher koh khush karna chathe ho toh tume Harman koh wapaas laana hoga," ash told him. He didn't know what to say. Was it better for meher to be with Harman? Will she be happy? Or was it better the way it was now? "yeh itna easy nahi hai…tumne dekha ne babuji kitne naraaz hai," preet said. "hum unne kissi taara se convince karlenge," ash said. "tum itni sure kaise ho?" he asked. Joining her hands with his, "kyun ki mujhe pura yakeen hai keh agar hum dono ek saath kaam kare toh kuch bhi mushkil nahi hai," she said as a slight smile crept up on his lips. "plan kya hai?" he asked. "plan toh kuch nahi hai lekin kuch sooch lenge…don't worry," she said with a smile. "theek hai…I am with you!" he said. "ek aur baat kaho?" she said. "ha kaho," he said. "tumne joh Harman se uski family keh baare mein kaha woh theek nahi hai preet. Uski family jaisi bhi ho uskehliye important hogi na aur tumne usse hi," ash said. "woh gussa tha toh bol diya," he said. "jaanti ho…tume gussa aagaya toh tum kuch nahi sooch the ho," she said. "ok, I am sorry…aur next time Harman se milonga toh usse sorry bhi kehdunga," he said and she smiled. "Main tumse kuch poocho," preet asked. "kya?" she said. "tum achanak itni samaj daar kaise hogayi?" he asked. "hey…what do you mean?" she said. "nahi kal tak toh tum aisi nahi thi," he said. "kal tak main iss ghar ki bahu nahi thi aur waise bhi preet mujhe aur kuch baaton keh baare mein paata ho ya nahi…pyaar keh baare mein toh zaroor paata hai," she said as they both remembered the moments that they spent together before marriage, alone hiding from the eyes of everyone.
That night, no one really slept in the juneja house. Lalit and gayatri were worried about their daughter and her future. Kiran and kulraj felt stuck in between meher's feelings and lalit's anger. Preet and ash were trying to think of an idea to solve the whole situation. And prem and heer were separated. Prem was on the terrace hurt that his own sister didn't tell him such a big thing that was happening in her life. But, he was hurt more that heer also hid this from him. "kyun heer? Kyun tumne mujhse yeh sabh chupaya. Kya apne prem peh itna baroosa bhi nahi tha tume?," he thought as he stood looking at the moon with tears in his eyes. She sat in the kids' room with her daughter playing in her arms but her thoughts were somewhere else. "meri baat ek baar sunto leyte prem…main jaanti ho keh maine tume hurt kiya hai par maine yeh sabh jaan bhujkar nahi kiya. Mujhe laaga keh shayad meher aur Harman yeh sabh apne aap solja lenge par main galat thi," she thought sadly. As she sat there thinking how to talk to prem and how to solve the whole issue, she didn't know when sleep hit her. Hours passed and he returned to their room. His eyes searched for her but she was nowhere in sight. He walked into the next room to see her asleep with chahat in her arms. He walked up to her and slowly took chahat in his arms. Putting their daughter to sleep in her crib, he turned to see her snuggle close to the couch feeling the cold night against her skin. He went to their bed and came back with a blanket. Covering her with it, he left to sleep for the remaining of the night which had only a few hours left of it. The sun was on the horizon and she opened her eyes as the sun rays touched her skin. She realized that she was still in the kids' room. She checked on prateek and chahat and they were still asleep. She walked into the next room to see her husband, still asleep. Without disturbing him, she freshened up and went downstairs. She didn't see anyone in the living room or kitchen. She walked out to the back garden and took a seat in one of the chairs. "kya maine sahi kiya? kya sabh koh meher keh baare mein baata dena chahe tha? Kuch samaj mein nahi aaraha hai. Prem toh meri baat bhi nahi sunraha hai…kya karo main," she sat there thinking. Time passed and she came out of her thoughts hearing gayatri call for her. She went back in the living room, "heer…tum itni subha garden mein kya karahi ho? tum theek toh hona beta?" gayatri asked. "jee ma woh neend nahi aarahi thi aur bahar mausam accha haina issliye main bahar chali gayi thi," heer replied. "theek hai chalo nashta laaga dehte hai," gayatri said. "ma…aap theek toh haina?" heer asked concerned. "khabhi soocha nahi tha the aisa bhi ek din dekhna padega. Aaj tak hume khabhi meher se unchi awaaz mein baat bhi nahi ki aur aaj yenune uss peh haath utadiya. Saari raat yehi sooch the sooch the bheet gayi," gayatri said sadly. "aap chinta mat kijiye…sabh bahut jald theek hojayega," heer said and they both went inside.
The family sat at the breakfast table as heer and ashlesha served them. "meher darwaza nahi khol rahi hai…usne neeche aane se maana kardiya," kulra j said reaching the table. "jab usse bhook lagegi woh neeche aake kalegi…tum bait jao," lalit told kulraj. Kulraj looked at gayatri and she motioned her to sit. "preet…tumne tickets book karliye?" lalit asked. "jee babuji…tickets book kardiye. Flight aaj raat ki hai…hume aaj hi nikal na padega," preet said. "uss mein kohi problem nahi hai…hum aaj hi chale jayenge. Kulraj apni behen koh yeh baat baatana dehna," lalit said and kulraj nodded. As she walked up to him to serve him, "mujhe nahi chahiye," he said. "prem…tujhe nastha kyun nahi chahiye? Heer paroso," gayatri said. "nahi ma mujhe bhook nahi hai…mujhe nahi chahiye," prem said as he left from there before she could say anything. "yeh prem bhi na…jab bhi bahut pareshaan hota hai tab yeh khaana theek se nahi khata," gayatri worried. "ma…main jaake dekhti hoon," heer said. "tu nashta leyja beta," gayatri said. "jee ma," heer said. Minutes later, she walked into the room to see him sitting on the bed working with a file. "tum mujhse naraaz ho par please prem khaana khalo," she said. "mujhe bhook nahi hai…ley jao isse," he said as he stood up from the bed to leave. "mujhe tumse kuch baat karni hai," she told him. "heer please mujhe tumse kohi baat nahi karni…mujhe akela chodo," he said as he started to leave. "mujhse baat nahi karni lekin ek baar meri baat sun toh sakthe hona," she said. Listening to her, his feet stopped. Seeing that, she started to speak, "prem…main jaanti hoon keh maine meher ki saachayi chupa kar tume bahut hurt kiya hai lekin maine yeh issliye nahi kiya kyun ki mujhe tum peh baroosa nahi hai. main iss duniya mein tumse zyaada kisi peh vishwaas nahi karti…khud par bhi nahi. Mujhe sirf dar tha keh tum uski feelings koh samaj nahi paoge aur dekho aaj wahi horaha hai," she told him. "kya matlab?" he asked confused. "mujhe dar tha keh ghar wale uski feelings koh samaj payenge ya nahi aur kal raat wahi huwa. kisine bhi meher ki baat nahi suni. Main jaanti hoon prem keh kal joh halaat the uss mein sooch na bahut mushkil hai lekin ek baar uski baat sunle the," heer said as he looked at her. "itna asaan nahi hai," he said. "jaanti hoon. tume paata hai prem jab mujhe ashlesha aur preet keh baare mein paata chala toh mujhe kitni chinta huwi thi though main preet koh acchi taara se jaanti thi. Kahi na kahi dar tha keh kya ash khush rahegi lekin jab maine uski ankho mein woh khushi dekhi aur woh ehsaas dekha toh mujhe yakeen hogaya keh preet keh siva kohi aur ash koh khush nahi raksaktha. Tum ek baar meher aur Harman se baat karo aur unki baat sunlo shayad tume ehsaas hoga keh tumari apni behen keh dil mein kya hai," heer told him and he listened. Before he could reply, they both heard a knock on the door. They turned to see gayatri, "aree ma aayiye na," heer said. "shayad main galat waqt peh aagayi…lagtha hai keh tum dono kuch zaroori baat karahi the," gayatri said. "nahi ma aisa kuch nahi…aayiye na," prem said. "ha ma prem theek kehraha hai. Aap koh kuch chahiye tha?" heer asked. "woh beta main bas yeh kehne aayi thi keh tum dono aur ashlesha preet jaake balraj bhai saab se milo aur unne baata dehna keh aaj raat hum sabh wapaas jaraha hai," gayatri said. "jee ma," heer said. "aur beta agar woh pooche keh kyun toh tum….," gayatri hesistated. "ma…main samaalongi…aap chinta mat kijiye," heer said as gayatri said. "tum log jaake jaldi wapaas ajao phir packing karke nikal na bhi toh hai," gayatri said and both prem and heer agreed.
He was sitting outside watching the kids play in the garden as he saw the car pull up. A smile crept up on his lips seeing his daughters get off the car. "aree tum log itni subha yaha," he said. "Namastey baba," they all greeded balraj as preet and ash bent down to take his aashirwaad. "jeete raho," he said smilingly. "Chalo andar baite hai. tum dono koh subhe subhe apne baba ki yaad kaise aagayi?" balraj asked. "Hume aapse kuch kehna tha," ash said as they all looked at each other not knowing how balraj will react. "tum log baito main nashte ka intezaam karke aata hoon," balraj said. "Aree nahi baba…uski kohi zaroorat nahi hai. Hum sabh ne kuch hi dher phele nashta kiya tha…aap humare saath baitiye na," prem said. "Lekin beta…tum log koh ghar aaye ho toh," balraj said. "Baba hum toh apne haina toh aap itne formal kyun horahe ho," preet said as balraj smiled. "accha bolo kya baat karni hai tum logo ko?" balraj asked. "baba woh hum yeh kehne aaye the keh….hum…," heer mumbled not knowing how to break the news. "aree heer tu itni pareshaan kyun horahi hai…baata na," balraj said as heer looked at ash. "baba…hume aaj hi wapaas jaana hai," ash said as balraj looked at her shocked. "aaj hi? Kyun? Tum logo ne toh kaha tha na keh tum sabh kuch din yahi rahoge?" balraj said. "ha baba lekin aabh achanak wapaas jaana padraha," ash replied. "aisa kya hoga beta keh apne baba koh chodkar itni jaldi jarahe ho?" balraj said sadly as heer went up to him. "nahi baba…please aap dukhi mat hoyiye. Woh actually na prem and preet koh kuch business mein urgent kaam aagaya hai aur ma nahi chathi keh preet aur ashlesha alag rahe…abhi abhi toh unki shaadi huwi haina issliye hum sabh wapaas jarahe hai," heer lied. She had never lied to balraj about anything but now she was the bahu of the juneja family and whatever happened in that house stayed in that house. It was her responsibility as the eldest bahu to keep and protect the honor of that family and that she will do until her last breath. "maine soocha keh tum dono yaha rahoge toh thode din mujhe bhi akela nahi rehna padega lekin kohi baat nahi…tum dono jaha bhi ho khush raho toh mere liye yehi kaafi hai," balraj said as tears filled his eyes. "baba please aap akele kaha hai…aap koh jabhi kohi bhi zaroorat ho toh aap hume aisa bhula sakthe hai," ash said snapping her fingers which made balraj smile. "kash aisa hota…lekin aabh tum dono sirf meri betiya thodi na kisiki ghar ki bahu bhi toh hona," he said. "aap apne betiyo ko nahi lekin apne beto koh toh phone karsakthe haina?" prem said as balraj looked at him. "ha baba PB theek kehrahe hai kya hum aapke beta nahi?" preet asked. "nahi beta…aisa nahi hai," balraj said. "aisa nahi hai toh aap vaada kijiye keh aap hume phone karenge jab bhi aapko zaroorat hogi," prem said. "theek hai main zaroor phone karonga," balraj said as everyone smiled. Later, balraj insisted that they stay for lunch but heer denied saying that they couldn't. But, prem agreed for balraj's happiness and they all ate lunch together. Before leaving, heer and ash hugged balraj and said their goodbyes. "apna khayal rakiye baba," heer said coming out of the hug. "tum bhi…apna aur ghar mein sabh ka khayal rakna, main lalit bhai saab se bhi baat karonga," balraj said. "jee baba," heer said and they all left. On the way back, both ash and heer were silent with tears in her eyes. Heer consoled ash as she knew how it felt to leave everyone behind so suddenly and go so far away.
She kept dialing his number again and again. This was probably the millionth time that she was dialing his number but the operator kept saying that his phone was out of reach. "yeh Harman phone kyun nahi utha raha hai…woh theek toh hoga na. mujhe usse baata na padega keh hum sabh aaj raat koh jarahe hai lekin main usse mile bina nahi jaungi…chaye kuch bhi hojaye," she said to herself. The couples returned to home to see gayatri pacing through the living room. "accha huwa tum log aagaye…samaj mein nahi aaraha hai keh kya karo?" gayatri said worried. "ma…kya huwa? aap itni pareshaan kyun hai?" prem asked. "meher ne subhe se kuch nahi khaya hai aur woh darwaza bhi nahi khol rahi hai. maine usse baat karne ki khosish ki lekin woh kehrahi hai keh woh kuch suna nahi chathi. Aur tumare babuji ne bhi mujhe usse uski halat peh chodo lekin kaise chodo…agar woh kuch khayegi nahi toh uski tabeyat karaab hojayegi," gayatri worried. "ma…aap shant hojayeyi…main jaake dekhti hoon," heer said and left from there. As she sat on the floor hoping he would pick up her phone or at least call her to tell her he is okay. "khabhi nahi soocha tha keh yeh sabh mere saath hoga…aisa kya galat kardiya maine…kya pyaar karna itni baadi galati hai keh mere khud keh ghar wale mere saath yeh sabh karahe hai? kyun horaha hai yeh sabh mere saath? Tum kaha ho Harman? Please wapaas aajao…please," she thought as tears rolled down her cheeks. Just then, she heard a knock at the door. "mujhe kisise baat nahi karni…please jayiye," she yelled. "meher…main hoon…please darwaza kholo…mujhe tumse baat karni hai," heer said. "bhabhi…please mujhe akela chodijiye…mujhe kohi baat nahi karni," meher said. "meher please ek baar darwaza khol doh…yaha sabh bahut pareshaan hai…please," heer pleaded. Meher wiped her tears and went to open the door. Heer walked in with the tray of food and placed it on the table. "khahiye bhabhi kya bolna chathi hai aap?" meher asked. "woh sabh hum baad mein baat karenge lekin tu phele khale," heer said. "nahi bhabhi…mujhe bhook nahi hai," meher replied. "meher please aise zid mat kar thoda sa khale warna teri tabeyat karaab hojayegi aur ma bhi tuhje lekar bahut pareshaan hai," heer said worried. "meri fikar kisiko nahi hai bhabhi, hoti toh aisa nahi karte mere saath," meher said. "aisa nahi hai meher iss ghar mein sabh tujhse bahut pyaar karte hai aur chinta bhi," heer said. "nahi bhabhi…yeh sabh jhoot hai. jab Harman ne uski feelings confess ki toh main bahut khush hogayi thi soocha tha keh sabh koh apni khushi bataongi lekin aisa kuch nahi huwa. kisine mujhe kuch kehna ka bhi mauka nahi diya bas suna diya mujhe aur Harman koh," meher said getting angry. "lekin meher…tum…," heer said when meher interrupted, "please bhabhi…aapne meri bahut help ki hai lekin mujhse aabh iss baare mein kuch nahi sunna hai. main yaha se nahi jaungi aur yeh mera aakiri faisla hai," she said. "agar main kaho toh bhi nahi?" someone said as they both turned to prem at the door.
"Bhai aap?" meher asked. "kya main andar aake tujhe baat karsaktha hoon?" he asked. "ha bhai…aap ko mere room mein aane kehliye khabhi ijazat leyne ki zaroorat nahi hai," she told him and he walked in. "kahiye bhai?" she asked. "kahonga…lekin phele tujhe mere liye kuch karna padega," prem said. "kya bhai?" meher said. "aao mere saath," he said as he took her and made her sit on the couch with him. Taking the food tray from him and placing it on the table, "yeh khaana khana hoga," prem said. "lekin bhai mujhe bhook nahi hai," meher told him. "dekh meher…kohi bhi problem ka solution yeh nahi hai keh tu khaana chode. Aur waise bhi tu toh hum sabh se naraaz haina toh gussa khaane peh kyun nikaal rahi hai," prem said as heer looked at him. "Bhai kya aap koh bhi lagtha hai keh maine kohi galati ki hai Harman se pyaar karke?" meher asked. "agar main saach kaho toh mujhe khud paata nahi hai meher lekin main tujhe mauka dehna chatha hoon apni baat aage rakne ka par tujhe phele khaana hoga. Yeh le," prem said as he offered his sister a bite of roti and sabzi. Meher agreed as she ate the bite and prem and heer sighed a breath of relief. After meher finished eating, "yeh huwi na meri acchi behen wali baat. Aabh baata tu kya kehna chathi hai…main sunne kehliye tyaar ho," prem said. "bhaiya Harman ki kohi galati nahi hai. Main hi usse phele pyaar karne lagi aur jab maine usse apne pyaar ka izhaar kiya toh usne maana kardiya. Kyun ki uske mom dad ka divorce usse puri taara thodiya tha…usne rishton se apna vishwaas khodiya tha. Maine usse baat karna chodiya aur issliye hi main india chali aayi taaki mujhe kuch waqt miljaye yeh sabh baato se door lekin Harman yaha bhi aagaya," meher said as prem listened. "jab bhi Harman ne mujhse baat karne ki khosish ki maine usse ignore kardiya lekin phir bhabhi ne mujhe samajaya keh mujhe Harman koh ek mauka dehna chahiye. Phir reception mein Harman se mujhse vaada liya keh main usse raat koh milongi aur tabhi hume babuji ne dekh liya," meher completed. "kya tu mujhe yeh sabh phele nahi baata sakthi thi. Kya tujhe apne bhai peh baroosa nahi tha?" prem asked. "nahi bhai…aisa nahi hai. main nahi chathi thi keh iss sabh keh baare mein ghar mein kisiko bhi paata chale aur sabh pareshaan ho woh toh bhabhi ne mujhe prom ki raat dekhliye tha. Aur jab unone mujhe poocha toh main apne aapko samal nahi paayi thi aur unne sabh baata diya lekin maine unse vaada bhi leyliya keh woh yeh baat kisiko nahi baatayengi. Bhabhi itni acchi hai keh unone apna vaada puri taara se raka…thank you bhabhi," meher said as prem looked at heer. "bhaiya please meri help kijiye. Main subhe se Harman ka phone try karahi hoon lekin laghi nahi raha hai…mujhe bahut dar lagraha hai bhai…please aap usse doond keh laayi na please," meher pleaded as prem saw the worry in her eyes for Harman. "meher tu chinta mat kar woh theek hoga. May be he wants to take a break…shayad woh kuch dino kehliye kahi door jaake iss sabh keh baare mein soochna chatha ho," prem said. "lekin bhai yeh jaana bina keh Harman theek hai aur kaha hai main yaha se nahi jaungi…aap babuji se baat karahi na…main nahi jaungi," meher said adamantly. "Meher aisa mat kar. Dekh agar tu nahi jayegi toh babuji aur naraaz hojayenge. Tu humare saath wapaas chal hum waha jaake kuch na kuch sooch leyenge," prem said. "ha meher…Harman theek hoga lekin agar tu wapaas nahi chalegi toh ma babuji koh aur takleef hogi," heer explained. Meher felt her heart torn in pieces. One side she wanted to stay and find out where Harman went and if he was ok or not. But, on the other side, she didn't want to hurt her parents. She could have yelled at them last night because she was angry, but she didn't mean any of it. How could she? They were the world to her but couldn't she add a small part to that world, called Harman. "theek hai, main chalongi," meher said as prem and heer smiled.
The rest of the day passed with the family packing stuff and getting ready to leave. Every time he tried to talk to her, someone interrupted them telling prem to do something for this or that. It was about time to leave when he caught her alone in the kitchen making milk for the kids. As she was pouring milk into the feeding bottles, she felt him come in. "kuch chahiye tha?" she asked. "woh actually mujhe…," he said but they were interrupted with prateek crying. "prem mujhe jaana hai…prateek…," she said and he nodded and she left from there. As everyone was getting ready to leave, she sneaked out the back door and found kishan kaka who takes care of the house when they are away. Seeing her at the door, "aree meher betiya…aap sabh toh jarahe haina?" he asked. "jee kaka lekin usse phele mujhe aapse ek madad chahiye…please?" meher said. "ha betiya bolo," he said. "kaka…woh kya haina mera dost Harman haina usse kissi kaam se bahar jaana paada toh agar woh wapaas aaya toh usse yeh chitti dehdenge please," she said as she gave him the letter. "ha zaroor beta," kishan said. "thanks kaka aur ha kisiko yeh baat mat kahiye," meher said as she quickly left from there and returned home before anyone noticed she was gone. On the way to the airport, his eyes kept looking at her through the rearview mirror. He could see the glint from her eyes missing as she sat there with prateek in her arms. It made him feel terrible that he was the reason she was like that. "gusse mein paata nahi maine kya kya kehdiya. Ha usse batana chahiye tha lekin woh toh sirf meher ka vaada nibha rahi thi. Main jaanta hoon keh meher meri behen hai aur mujhe jaane ka haq tha lekin yeh baat seede se bhi kehsaktha tha na, chilane ki kya zaroorat thi" he thought to himself looking at her. Soon, they reached the airport and got on the plane. She put the kids to sleep and sat on her seat with her eyes closed. No matter how many times she traveled in the plane, it didn't make things any better. She was still as scared as the first time she sat in one. As the plane started to move, he turned to see her next to him. A smile crept up on his lips seeing her. He kept his hand on her right wrist which was on the arm rest. Unknowingly, she pressed her left hand on top of his and held it tight. After the plane took off and it settled a bit, she opened her eyes to see him. They sat together hand in hand as the aura of love surrounded them. "I am sorry," he said. "prem…tum," she said when he interrupted her, "nahi heer mujhe bolne doh. Main tum peh chilaya nahi chatha tha lekin tum jaanti hona keh gusse mein khabhi main kuch zyaada bol jatha hoon," he told her. "prem…tume explain nahi ki kohi zaroorat nahi hai. mujhe bura nahi laaga," she said. "I am sorry," he said again. "tum please sorry mat kaho. Maine kaha haina keh tum sorry bolte huwe bilkul bhi acche nahi lagthe," she said as they both smiled. "tum bahut acchi ho heer…I am very lucky keh tum meri jeevan saathi hoon," prem said as he pulled her into hug. "prem kya karahe ho hum plane mein hai," she reminded him and they broke apart as they felt their cheeks turn tomato red.
First of all, I am very sorry that you all had to wait so
long but this time I wasn't being lazy, I really couldn't think. I have been so
confused on where to take the story and this is what I came up with. I don't think
it's a great part but since I was getting PMs to update…here it is. Hope you
guys like it. Cant wait to see your comments
