Kashish returned from her past and once again saw Scarlett make a fool of herself in front of Rhett after her childish confession to Ashley Wilkes. How could she have let such silliness ruin her whole life? Kashish asked to no one in particular 3rd time as she watched the movie in last two days. Why couldn't Scarlett be happy with Rhett instead of mooning over Ashley who wasn't even as handsome… Why can't I stop mooning over Akshay? Kashish thought stingingly.
When she had come to Illyria, she had one brief phone conversation with Akshay. He had told her he was sorry but it was all mistake. He had found his true love here Jennifer, Jenni, a young beautiful socialite who was the single heiress to her daddy's diamond mining business. The last info had been supplied by Ridhima. According to her informants Akshay was a spendthrift Casanova who didn't like working. He was rooting for Kashish coz she was rich and submissive. But by what he had spread around in his social circle Kashish was also too prim and an ice princess. More over this young heiress was richer and more lose then Kashish.
Kashish listened to it all but refused to believe all of it. Sure Akshay wanted to marry a rich girl, which guy didn't? Her father's wanted her to marry a rich guy… but everything else he didn't believe. Akshay would never spread such ugly rumors; he knew she was too shy, not frosty. He probably left her for the other girl not coz she was more lose but maybe more exciting, more extrovert and daring. Maybe even outrageous. And lastly Akshay wasn't a spendthrift Casanova detesting hard work. He had been working under his uncle in India. She had seen him work hard. Sometimes he would even work overnight, and then Kashish could see the strain of it on his face, his red eyes, his rumpled hair and clothes. He was a hard worker and Kashish refused to believe otherwise.
If only…. If only what you sorry little nobody? The old contemptuous voice teased inside Kashish's mind. Somehow whenever she berated herself it tended to be in Akshay's words and voice.
Shaking her head regretfully Kashish scooped more ice-cream and licked hoping the cold ice-cream could numb her pain and not just her tongue. If wish I could be more like Scarlett. Not foolish like her but courageous like her. Kashish though as she saw Scarlett working hard to restore Tara after the war, scheming, lying, manipulating and even getting married all for Tara. Kashish replied to the taunting voice inside her.
Before Kashish knew her ice-cream was finished and even the movie was coming to an end, but this time surprisingly Kashish wasn't crying, she had cried over and over for last 3 days when she had seen the movie thrice but now she just ran out of tears, maybe even grief. She saw Scarlett trying to hold back Rhett from leaving, trying to save her life from falling apart:
Rhett- I am through with everything here. I want peace… do you know what I am talking about?
Scarlett- no! I only know that I love you.
Rhett- that's your misfortune.
Scarlett- Rhett, Rhett… Rhett, if you go, where shall I go? What shall I do?
Rhett- frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
And Rhett butler walked out laming the door on Scarlett's face. Just like Akshay had slammed the door on Kashish's happiness. Akshay had left to, regardless of what she had felt and she hadn't been even as stupid a Scarlett to drive him to it. Then why are both of us alone in the end?
Tara! Home. I'll go home. And I'll think of some way to get him back. After all…. tomorrow is another day.
Well she's come as far as Illyria Kashish thought. But instead of thinking of ways of getting him back she had been bawling her eyes out. And yes tomorrow indeed is another day. If Scarlett could lose her house, family, children, everything and till have hope to survive… Kashish could definitely take inspiration and stop being a wimp!
Switching off the television Kashish looked around and saw what a mess she had been living in. slowly methodically she cleaned up the room and then the whole apartment for Ridhima, later she took a long relaxing bath wore fresh clothes made dinner, drank milk and went to sleep. She had now to think of ways to get Akshay back. Simple as that. He was man and Jenni was a rich temptation. Kashish loved him enough to forgive him for straying once like this. Soon she'll make him see sense. How, was the question now.
When Ridhima came home that night she was obviously pleased with the change in Kashish and thanked her for cleaning and the dinner. By happiness melted away from her face as Kashish told her of her plan to get Akshay back. Kashish could see that Ridhima didn't approve of Akshay. But thankfully she didn't discourage Kashish either. Together they came up with several plans for Kashish to attract Akshay back, deciding on plan of action they both retired for the night and Kashish went for tearless sleep in months.
Sujal couldn't decide between punching the guy down, shoving him aside or just slipping a 100 dollar bill and making his step aside. It give would give him great pleasure, grim satisfaction or just way to get through respectively. He stood and glared at the pompous concierge standing in his way and swung with indecision.
"I repeat sir, please leave. We don't want any bad publicity." Punch, definitely punch. Sujal though and then said as calmly as he could manage.
"Since you know who I am. Wouldn't it be reasonable you let me pass easily I say my piece to her and get out without a scene. I swear no violence. I just want to show her these papers." Sujal flashed some contract papers hoping to bluff.
"Well if it just civil conversation, I can agree. But you see we had explicit orders not to let you pass through." Let's just shove him aside.
"I understand orders are orders.. But can't you pretend you never saw me..I slipped through when you wee somewhere else?"
"An excellent idea sir. We just don't want losing any patrons you see." Oh he saw very well, Sujal sighed and pull out 2 hundred dollar bills and handed them over discreetly. The concierge smiled conspiringly and slipped away.
Now for the tough part. Sujal took a deep breath and mentally repeated his piece. He couldn't afford to make mistakes. Once had be enough to ruin what little faith his father had in him. Twice had been enough to develop intense animosity between them and Sujal leaving his house. If he made the third one.. God knows what would happen.. Probably his father would lose the election.
Sujal son of the man running for the mayor had made the first mistake by going out with Jennifer Abot and sleeping with her when she had pretended to be an easy woman, who just wanted to fool around. There had been big splash about their affair and Sujal hadn't known who her daddy was. Next mistake was when he had tried to break up coz of all the unwanted publicity and the sudden rumors of marriage between them. Instead of accepting it, she had clung to him and had spread rumors that she was pregnant by him. Sujal had been too shocked to reply to the accusation, but she hadn't been. After painting him the villain, she had went ahead broken up with him in public and told everyone that she didn't need a scumbag like him to take care of her. She was her own woman and she would bear it on her own, now she was the heroine.
Now Sujal walked over to the very private table where she was sitting with her new prey giving an Oscar worthy performance. Sujal skidded to a top near their table and waited till she looked at him, eyes round with shock.
"Sujal! What're you doing here! My god you are stalking me now! Oh god. Do you want me to get restraining orders? It's over Sujal. Why don't you understand?!!" she gushed with perfect expressions of horror and pity.
"Save the theatrics Jen.. No one's about and he won't be after tomorrow." Sujal pointed toward the other guy, "Although you don't deserve it, but I thought I'll make a deal with you.. I have certain receipts and video tapes of you in a Vegas suite when you were supposed to be in love with me. I also have report of your recent visit to the doctor.. You were never pregnant.. Now the medical report will be in tomorrow's newspaper. But if you don't want other info leaking over net then you better retract every wrong thing you said me and apologize or suffer as I have. And oh, no one will ever know that I have leaked the info.. So don't think you can say I am having a revenge." Sujal concluded smugly and watched as Jennifer gasped like a fish opening and closing her mouth for air and scathing words, while her dinner partner just looked too shocked to even give any other reaction.
Sujal saw panic lurking in Jennifer's eyes as she began hatching a new scheme, "I don't know what you are talking about. There are no Vegas tapes ok? And I won't apologize for something I didn't do. You can release what you want, no one's gonna believe a scoundrel like you."
Sujal calmly took out a copy of her medical report and one single photograph of the video and handed it to her. Jennifer grew rapidly white as she saw the papers. It was then her dinner companion stood up to Sujal, "Look man, just leave the lady alone ok. She left you period. Get over it. So you weren't good enough that she had to go somewhere else. Not her fault. Don't make this worse." He finished with a smirk and Sujal felt a wild desire to rip that smirk off.
"Look schoolboy, don't talk between adults ok? You don't even know what Jenni here is. And as far as my performance is concerned.. Did she tell you where she was yesterday afternoon?"Sujal laughed mirthlessly at the reddening face.
"Just leave Sujal. I don't want to have anything to do with u. You can drag me through mud but it won't make you pristine clean again. Do whatever you want. Just don't show me your pig face again." Jennifer said with an affected sigh and handed over the papers.
"Yeah. Listen to her. You besotted fool." The dinner companion added.
Sujal shrugged, he saw defeat in Jennifer's eyes and knew this was her last attempt at dignity. What to do? Sujal wasn't vindictive by nature but something about the whiny voice of her dinner companion just didn't sit well with him.
" 'yeah, listen to her' " Sujal mimicked with a slight more whine, "I am not the besotted fool you sputtering, pukey idiot. Enjoy her as long as she wants. Ciao." Sujal waved to Jennifer deliberately ignoring the man and left grinning easily for the first time in months.
