They finally reached Angad's house. Angad lived alone with Aryan. Angad's parents lived in Canada. They used to live in New York, but later moved to Canada. Angad came back to New York after the divorce because basketball was more popular in America than Canada.
Kripa walked into the house. It was big as she remembered it. Aryan's pictures were hung everywhere. She knew Angad loved Aryan more than his own life. She remembered when Aryan was born Angad never left his side. In fact, Angad even named Aryan. She remembered all her friends telling her she would never have free time after having a baby. But to tell the truth Angad always looked after Aryan. At night, when Aryan would cry, Angad insisted staying up and feeding him until Aryan went back to sleep. Angad would give him baths, change his clothes, and change his diaper. Every time Kripa insisted on doing it, Angad would tell her he loved doing these things. They would both laugh. Angad never let anything harm Aryan. All their friends would say Angad was more of a mother than father. Those were the days Kripa realized Aryan was the luckiest boy in the world to have a father like Angad.
Aryan-Hey mom, come on I'll show you my room!
Aryan dragged Kripa upstairs to his room. Kripa noticed what a big mess the room had. Clothes and toys were everywhere. As Kripa stepped in the room, she tripped over a basketball and fell.
Kripa yelled- Ouch!
Angad ran into the room.
Both Angad and Aryan started laughing.
Kripa finally managed to sit up.
K-Gosh Aryan, dont you ever clean your room?
Ary-Dad says I don't have to. The maids do it once a week.
K- What?! It gets like this even after someone cleans it every week?!
Angad-Well Kripa he's only 7.
K-True, but its a pigsty in here!
Aryan-Hey mom, if you think this is messy, you should see dads room!
Ang-Shut up Aryan, u got in trouble, so now your dragging me down with you?
Ary- Just wanted you to join in on the fun dad.
K- Okay, will someone help me up now?
Angad helped up Kripa. When he touched her hand, they both felt something. The same current that ran in their bodies seven years ago.
Aryan interupted their thoughts: Dad I'm hungry, can we eat out tonight?
Angad- Yeah sure!
K-Well, I'm tired I think I might pass.
Angad- Come on Kripa, i promise i wont eat you.
K-I'm not scared of you Angad.
A-I know, your not scared of anything...but the truth.
K- I know the truth.
A-So do I.
Aryan- What are you guys talking about?
K- Nothing lets go.
Kripa changed her clothes and wore a black dress. She went downstairs and saw Angad and Aryan waiting for her.
K-Sorry about the wait, lets go.
They all went to a Chinese restaurant.
They ordered their food and were eating it. It was delicious.
K-So, Aryan when did you get an interest in basketball?
Ary- I don't know, I guess it rans in my blood. But I really do like it, its really fun!
K- Good, I'm glad you have fun.
K- Exscuse me I have to use the lady's room.
Kripa got up and left.
Ary- Dad why do girls always have to use the lady's room?
A- Son, they have to check their make-up, to see if they look good or not.
Ary- Who is mom trying to look good for?
A- The most handsome guy here of coarse.
Ary- For you?
A- No, for you!
Ary- How do you know dad?
Angad and Kripa were at a restaurant when she was pregnant.
Kripa- Wow Angad the food is so good!!!
Angad- I know, after all who chose the restaurant?
K-Excuse me Angad, I have to go to the restroom.
A- But u just went before we left from home?
K- Angad, your so stupid, Dont you know every time a girl has to use the restroom she has to go freshen up.
K- To check my makeup, I have to look good don't I?
A- Well for who?
K- See that guy over there.
Angad turned around and there was a mirror from which he could see himself in.
A- Aww, My wife is so sweet.
K- Hey but as soon as I have this kid, Im going to look good for him.
A- And why is that?
K- So he has the prettiest mom in town!
A- Well I dont think he'll have to worry about that, because he already does.
K- Angad your so sweet I love you!
A- I love you too!
---------------------------------End of Flashback--------------------------------------------
A- I just do.
Kripa cell phone started ringing. Angad noticed Kripa wasn't back yet. He was about to pick it up, but then he decided he no longer had the right to. He had a right on nothing of Kripas'. The only thing that kept them together was Aryan, their son. The one thing they had in common was their love for Aryan. After the divorce they had broken all bonds with eachother, but Aryan was one bond they couldn't break even if they wanted to. He was the one bond that would bind them together forever.
I'm too tired to write more. I'll write more later. I hope you guys liked today's part though.
