Nanhi wiped off her tears on hearing the knock on her door. Megha walked in and saw the letter opened. She smiled but on seeing a teary eyed Nanhi, she got concerned.
"Nanhi, What is it, beta?"
"I am just thinking how it will be to meet him after so many years"
Megha showed a joy of satisfaction and was happy that Nanhi was considering of going there.
"I am not forcing you to do anything, Nanhi. I and Mohan will be very happy if you decide to go there. But we totally understand if you don't want to."
"I know it must be difficult initially but in the three months that you are going to stay there, you will get comfortable."
"Rimjhim'" she hesitated.
"She is such a sweet little girl and you sure will like her"
Nanhi thought to herself 'No mummy! She is not the problem but I am. I don't know how I am going to deal with my own feelings whenever I see her and Mohan bonding'
"Nanhi, Inform your office about the change of plan in your stay"
"No mummy! I will stay with Spiderman.." Nanhi was surprised to see how easy the name fell through her. She wondered 'Was it this easy all this while and it's just that I didn't recognize it?' She hated to accept the fact that she hasn't moved on yet. She continued.
"I will stay with Spiderman for two or three days before moving into my company accommodation."
Megha was disappointed but did not want to say anything more. She just hoped that everything falls in place soon.
"Ok beta. Come I will help you packing"
"No mummy, I will take care"
Megha walked out of the room to see Addu sitting on the sofa watching TV. She was shocked and wondered when he arrived. She hoped that he hadn't heard any of their conversation.
"Addu, when did you come? Are you not keeping well? I thought you will be late after the party at your friend's place"
"No mummy, I got headache and couldn't stand the loud music, so I came off"
"Oh dear! Wait, I will get you some hot tea. In minutes your headache will be gone"
Addu gave a puzzled look at Megha who by then had vanished into the kitchen. A few minutes later when Megha sat next to Addu giving him the tea, Addu accidentally stomped her leg.
"It's ok beta. Nothing happened."
Addu was quiet for a while then asked "Mummy, Did I hurt you?"
"Not at all!" Megha responded in haste and when she looked at him, she wasn't sure what he was asking this for. She just smoothed his hair with her hands and smiled at him. He gave back a guilty smile and looked like he tried to hide something in his eyes.
Megha said casually "Nanhi will be leaving for Bhopal tomorrow"
"Will you feel lonely after she is gone, Mummy?"
Megha was stunned to hear this. "Why Addu? You are here with me. Moreover, Nanhi is gone only for few months and she will be back soon. Even if we miss her, she sure can make a weekend trip home."
"But will she, mummy?"
Megha was confused and not sure what Addu was trying to say or ask.
"Looks like you are very confused, beta. What is it?"
Addu did not say anything. He forced himself to smile at her and just laid his head on her lap. Megha couldn't figure anything from his act. She knew that this wasn't Addu's reaction whenever he heard them talking about Mohan. So she was sure that he hadn't known about their conversation but she was worried about what was going on in his mind now.
Megha couldn't help remembering Addu's reactions, whenever she tried to talk about Mohan. The otherwise obedient and well behaved Addu either went into his own den or threw upon tantrums on every silly matter. She understood that Addu wasn't there yet and he needed more time. It was only with perseverance that she could reach anywhere close to what she wanted for her family. From then it had never been a turn back for her, giving all the support Addu wanted from her to make him feel secured. She tried everything of her capacity, leaving no stones unturned, to make him her priority in every simple way. And her only hope was to have Addu come out of the shell on his own to accept Mohan in his own way.
She just brushed through his hairs and let him be on her lap, without disturbing him. Just then Nanhi walked into the living room.
"Mummy, I am done with my packing. Should I inform Spi'" She just held back her words on seeing Addu.
"Is Addu not keeping well, Mummy?"
"No, I am not! I'm just trying to steal mummy's lap for myself before you claim it!" Addu winked at her playfully trying to get back in form. Nanhi came in to occupy the other side of Megha's lap and said teasingly "I am fine in sharing it with you!"
She has FB.
After one year of separation, Mohan visited his family hoping to stay with them forever. He decided to make his visit a surprise and makes his entry late into the night. He opened the house with the keys with him and without making any noise entered his room. He was so mesmerized and captivated in awe watching a peacefully sleeping Megha. He could see a smile on her lips and it appeared to him that she was in her own dreams. He said to himself "I wish I am there filling your dreams, Megha! Because I want that sweet smile meant only for me!"
He kept his bag aside and slowly slipped onto the bed next to her. Turning towards her he rested his head on his arms so that he got to see her very close. He admired her adoringly and wanted to pull her towards him. But he couldn't force himself to intrude her dream, which he thought was about them.
He slowly removed the hair falling on her face with his other hand and traced his fingers on the side of her face. She just twisted her lips at the corners as if disturbed by breeze. Mohan bent closer to her and blew air on her eyes. She opened her eyes to see Mohan's face hazily and closed them back ignoring the fact. He smiled and moved further close to kiss her eyes gently. The touch of those soft lips shivered her senses, to make her eyes wide open.
"Mohan!" When she was about to sit up, Mohan fell on her to hug her back into position and responded "Megha".
Mohan asked "What was it?"
"I know you were dreaming and I was there in it. Tell me, Megha!"
Megha pushed him away and turned to face him.
"So Mr. Bhatnagar thinks that I dream only about him?"
"It's only this Mr.Bhatnagar who can bring that attractive smile on Mrs. Bhatnagar"
"Don't be over-confident, Mr. Bhatnagar. I feel sorry for you"
She held his nose tenderly and shook his head left to right.
"It is not always about you, Mister"
Mohan pretended to be angry and turned his back to her. Megha smiled at his action and continued
"There is a prince in my dream who doesn't know to tie his shoe laces, doesn't know how to talk to kids/elders and is always playful. He is very lovely in his heart and I have lost my heart to him. Now I'm trying to find him to get him locked in my hands"
As she went on about her Prince, Mohan spread a huge grin on his lips, enjoying her description. She quietly rubbed his back of the shoulder and slowly moved her hands to his front as if to pacify him. When she was least expecting, Mohan pulled her hands to him, to place soft kisses on them. Then he locked himself into her arms "See, You locked me into you forever! I can never be lost again"
She hugged him closer to her and kissed his shoulders. "I love you, Mohan"
His eyes brightened up with her endearment. He turned to her and kissed her cheeks "I love you, Megha"
They just relished their bliss of togetherness in each other's' arms. Little did they know that that would be their last night together and there was a long separation awaiting them later.
When Mohan had finally shared his opinion of an indefinite separation the next day, Megha was shaken to death. Though she could only second his opinion in every way, she dreaded to accept it. While Mohan himself was shattered and was upset, Megha walked to him. She took his hands into hers and looked him into his eyes. She could only see the pain that he was trying to hide there.
"I want you to take with you someone from here"
Mohan gave a confused look at her puzzle.
Mohan was astonished at the vision of her suggestion but got into senses immediately. He just pressed her hands with soft intensity.
"Megha, I am fine; and I will be fine"
"Mummyyy'" Nanhi and Addu have been calling Megha in chorus. It looked like they both were trying to grab her attention in their own ways, and Megha gave them the much needed smile and laughter watching them.
