At a certain distance...Rajiv took out something from his pocket.
Ram hid himself behind the tree...Rajiv took out what seemed like a
photograph...I promise you princess, things would be alright soon. Don't
worry...Love you loads...and he kissed the photo...
Ram he looked at his watch...1: 00 am it read...Ram
gave half a chuckle to himself...he did not need any answers
anymore...All his answers were standing right there in front of his
Making sure that Rajiv had not seen him Ram quietly slipped out and headed towards his room
Anu...thanks so much for the encouragement ...This is a bit crappy...sorry for spoiling your special FF...
Ram reached his room. He saw Aditya sitting on the porch waiting for
him..Ram sighed..he did not need this now. Not even with Aditya...
As he came close Aditya stood up...
Aditya: So how was the night? Enjoyed eh?
Ram: Its late Adi...will talk about it tomorrow..Ram walked past Aditya..
Aditya: Talk..does Major Ram Kapoor ever talk?
Ram stopped and turned back. What is there to talk about? The
night...yaaa it was a fantastic night, i enjoyed...but more than me i am
sure Rajiv and Priya must have enjoyed...
Aditya: You are still not seeing it, are you?
Ram: What is there to see Aditya?
Aditya: Ram, that girl is in love with you, for god's sake just once, just once open your eyes and see it..
Ram: In love with me? Ya, in love with me and having Rajiv for company at midnight? Is that what love is?
Aditya: How do you know?
Ram: I just saw Rajiv coming out of her room...and whats more is that he
has her photograph, and he kissed that photo in front of me and said he
loves her...if this is not clear enough than what is?
Aditya: I ll tell you what is clear Ram...The only one thing that is
clear is that you are a MCP...a bloody male chauvinist pig, that's what
you are...Rajiv came out of her room at midnight, thats a
scandal...right...afcourse her character is at question...and what about
you Ram, what were you doing near her room at night?
Ram was stunned by Aditya's outburst: I just wanted to ask some questions..
Aditya: Questions...you have questions...and what is Priya supposed to
do? You dance with her, you bloody kiss her and doubt her character?
What character you have Ram?
Ram: Aditya, it happened in the heat of the moment...i was...wait a minute she told you that?
Aditya: Heat of the moment? You call that heat of the moment...so what
is wrong if she spends some time with Rajiv or even kisses him...it can
happen in a heat of moment for her too..and what has gone into your head
Ram, why would any girl tell a complete stranger such an intimate
detail of her life?
Ram grabbed Aditya by his collar...She kissed him?
Aditya: This is what i am telling you Ram, look at you if she has indeed
kissed Rajiv you are unable to bear it and you claim you are not in
love? I truly pity Priya now, coz if she loves you than its the biggest
mistake of her life...
Ram left Aditya : Ram, i have been telling this to you for a long time,
stop taking things at face value...not everything that shines is gold
and sometimes gold may never shine at all...This habit of not speaking
up and keeping all to yourself is the route to self destruction Ram..
Aditya continued: You should have seen her after you left her at the
party Ram, her eyes were searching only for you, neither has she eaten
properly. Why would any woman let you come so close to her, let you kiss
her Ram unless you mean something to her...You are a fool to not
recognize her feelings and your feelings as well...Not all are so lucky
to get love Ram, some people search for it all their lives while for
some it just touches them once and creates a void for the rest of their
lives...ask someone who has loved and lost...Aditya had tears in his
eyes as he said that...
Ram: Adi, whats wrong Adi, look at me? Tell me what is wrong? Who loved whom and who lost?
Ram turned to look at the source of the voice...
Rajiv walked upto Aditya and put an arm on his shoulders...Nisha Sharma is the girl ...
Ram: Nisha Sharma...who Nisha Sharma...?
Rajiv put a hand into his pocket and fished out a photograph...Nisha
Sharma, the girl whom we both loved and whom we both lost...he said
looking at Aditya...
Ram: What's all this Adi, what is he saying?
Rajiv: I ll tell you Ram... While you were posted here, me and Aditya
were posted at Shimla...There was this college very near to our camp
where Nisha studied. She was beautiful and in course of time, we both
got to know her better...It was pure luck that me and Nisha fell in
love...and got married...I knew Aditya loved her too but he blessed us
with all his heart...
Ram: Then how did you lose Nisha? What happened...?
Rajiv: I was posted in Chandrapur the naxalite area. I had helped
capture a number of naxalites and also thwarted many of their attempts
of bombing and harming the public. The naxalites had issued a death
threat for me. I was unperturbed but Nisha was very much worried...Soon
we learnt that we were going to become parents... It was that day when
Nisha had gone for her routine medical check up, was supposed to go with
her but at the last minute a meeting came up and Nisha went alone...
and thats when the car she was in, blew up. I lost her and the baby as
Ram softened a little bit: Rajiv, how do you know Priya then?
Rajiv: Priya is Nisha's sister and my sister in law...
Ram was stunned to hear that...He sat down unable to comprehend
anything...It all seemed to happen at once...He looked at Aditya, Adi
had never told him about this...but endured it all alone...Somewhere Ram
knew he was responsible for it...If Adi had ever mentioned Rajiv, he
wouldn't have spoken to him...
Rajiv: I dont mean to interfere Ram, but there is nothing between me and
Priya...I have only loved one girl all my life and thats Nisha...I know
for a fact that our relationship is twisted...and i never expected you
to accept me as a brother...i know it cant happen but i have always
thought of you as a friend...thats it...Our parents may have made
mistakes but there is no reason for me to hate you...right now the only
truth that remains is that Priya loves you...Her eyes say a lot of
things Ram..try and see rather than just looking...
Rajiv turned to go...he went down the steps and looked at Ram
again...Priya doesn't know anything about us..atleast i have never told
her anything...and you dont need to be good to me just because i am
related to Priya...anyways i am here only for a short period of
time...but don't hurt her for no fault of hers...she simply loves
you...and Rajiv walked off from there...
