Angad was about to go to sleep when he heard a scream coming from Aryan's room. He ran toward the room as fast as he could.
Kripa also heard a scream, she knew it was Aryan, she ran toward the room, not knowing what happened to him.
They both went into the room. Kripa switched on the light and saw Aryan hiding under his covers.
K- What happened honey?
A- R u okay, why'd u scream?
Aryan- I'm glad u guys are here. I had a nightmare.
A- Aryan, dont worry, nightmares don't come true.
Aryan- I know, but I'm still kind of scared.
K- Aryan, what was your nightmare?
Aryan- It was of you two. You two died and I was left alone. You two will never leave me will you?
A- Never! We're not going to let u go so easily. Even if God told me to leave you I wouldnt. I love you Aryan.
Kripa and Angad both hugged a scared Aryan.
Aryan- Thanks, I think I'll be okay now.
K- R u sure?
A- If u want, u could sleep with me tonight.
Aryan- Naaa, I'm a big boy now.
K- If you need anything, you know where to find me right?
Aryan- Yeah mom, i love you.
K- I love you too. And just remember one thing: Your going to have dreams and your going to have nightmares, but you have to conquer your nightmares because of your dreams.
Aryan nodded at his mom. Angad tucked Aryan into bed again.
A- Good night
K-Don't let the bed bugs bite
Aryan gave his parents a reassuring smile that he would be fine. Though he knew from the inside he wouldn't. If it was one thing he could wish for from God, it would be to have his parents back together. In fact, thats what he asked from Santa Claus every year, but it never happened, but he would always ask again the next year. He would pray before he went to bed for his parents to be together, he knew they loved each other, then what was stopping them? Perhaps, that would be the one thing that would lack in his life forever.
Angad and Kripa both walked out of the room. They both went to their own rooms. Kripa tried sleeping but failed. She then tiptoed to the kitchen, made herself a cup of coffee and went to the living room. She sat silently on the coach drinking her coffee and flipping through a magazine. She didnt turn on the living room light, instead she turned on a nearby lamp.
Kripa heard the front door open and she heard footsteps coming in. She wondered who it was. She was scared but managed to tip top up, it was dark in the house. She saw a man coming in. Kripa was behind him and tip toed up to him......and................jumped on him!
Kripa was now sitting on top of the man and the man on the ground. His face was facing the ground too.
Kripa started to scream: ROBBER, ROBBER!!! Angad, Aryan come quick!!!!!!
The man tried to talk but Kripa put her hand over his mouth.
K- Angad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Aryan!!!!!!!!! Someone come quick!!!!
She heard footsteps coming down the steps and was glad Angad or Aryan were coming down.
Aryan flipped the light switch on.
K- Thank God your here, go get your dad Aryan.
By now Aryan could see the man's face, it was no other than Angad, Kripa didnt even look down so wasn't able to see him.
Aryan- But mom....
Kripa cut in- Aryan do as your told! Go get Angad or call the police!
Aryan- But mom Dads....
Kripa cut in again- Aryan, son, go get your dad!
The man tried to say something but Kripa tightend her grip around his mouth. She was sitting on his back.
Kripa- This man thought he could break in huh? Well after this he'll never break into another house again because he'll be in jail!
Aryan- Mom just listen to me once, dad is
Kripa- Dad is sleeping, can you go get him, fast Aryan I dont think I can sit on him any longer!
Aryan fastly- Mom, dads underneath you!!!
Kripa looked confused. Then she took her hand off the man's mouth and turned his face and saw it was no other than Angad.
K- OMG!!! I'm so sorry! I thought you were an intruder or something.
A- do you think u could get off of me, my backs killing me.
K- Oh yeah.
Kripa quicky got off of Angad and helped him up.
Aryan- Dang mom, u should of joined the police force!
K- Aryan u could have told me sooner I was sitting on Angad
Ary- I tried to mom, but u were too busy saying how your going to send the robber off to jail.
K- Yeah, yeah, I know.
K- Angad r u okay?
By now the three were sitting on the coach.
A- Yeah I'm alright now.
K- But what were u doing going around like a thief in your own house?
A- I wasn't, I couldnt sleep so I thought I would listen to some music, I went to go get a cd from my car, when I was coming back......the rest is history.
K- Well I'm sure we learned a valuable lesson from all this
Angad and Aryan- & What is that?
K- Umm...........well.........uhhh.........I dont know!
A- What were u doing up this late?
K- I couldnt sleep either.
Aryan- Hey I have an idea, lets watch a movie.
K- Not a bad idea
A- Cool, but what movie should we watch?
K- Lets see whats on. Do u have Indian Channels?
A- Uhhh...yeah I think so.
K- Cool! Kripa flipped through the channels and saw that Humko Deewane Kar Gaye was on.
Ary- Mom is this a love story?
Ary- I don't want to watch a love story
A- It won't be that bad, Akshay Kumars in it.
Ary- It's not that, I just dont want to watch a love story
K- Why not?
Ary- Because it's all a bloody lie!
K- Aryan, keep your tone down.
Ary- Why mom? U know as much as I do its all a lie. Love is a lie, marriage is a lie, and these stupid love stories are a lie!
Kripa looked over at Angad for some help, but Angad didnt say anything.
K- Aryan, honey, thats not true. Love isn't a lie. It's the best thing that'll ever happen to you.
Ary- Liar, if love is true and the best thing that'll ever happen to a person, then why do you guys have an Incomplete Love Story? Why are you two not living together, why are you two divorced?
Angad finally spoke up- Just go to your room
Ary- See, you guys cant even answer my questions.
With that, Aryan went upstairs to his room.
K- **** it Angad, you cant just send him to his room every time he's asking us questions!
A- What was I supposed to tell him, we had a divorce because his mother had an affair with another man!
Kripa looked angrily at Angad
K- You still think I had an affair? I thought 7 years would be enough for you to get it through your head that me and Prithvi are only friends, but boy was I wrong!
A- Whatever! You cant cover up your lies anymore. And look, today because of you Aryan's going through all this!
K- What? This would have never happened if you had even a little bit of trust in me! Aryan's going through this because of you!
A- Trust? Plz Kripa let's not use words which you dont know the definition to.
K- I know what trust means! I trusted you, I trusted that you would trust me! But how could I be so stupid! U trusted Mishty more than your own wife!
A- I trusted her more than you because of your own actions! If you hadn't........
A- Anyways, forget all this, what happened, happened, its history now.
K- You dont get it do you, our history is ruining Aryan's present!
A- I know......
K- Thanks.....thanks for not poisoning Aryan's mind against me all these years.
A- No problem, I know how important it is to have a mother in kid's life.
K- Thats not what u said....
K- Thats not what u said that night.......our anniversary night you said....you said Aryan doesnt need a mother in his life........it really hurt Angad.
A- I'm sorry, I guess I didnt realize what I was saying.
A- You know what I heard one time?
A- It was something like this " Divorce begins with too many unspoken words and things at the end of the day."
A- It was the complete opposite with us, I mean ours began with too many spoken words.
K- Actually ours ended with too many spoken words.
K- We should go to sleep now.
A- Not a bad idea.
It took me a long time to write up, so I hope you liked it! I'll continue soon!
