thanks for all the lovely replies!
Sindoora got ready in the morning. For twenty minutes she basically stared at the mirror. She looked great even for someone in their fifth decade. She smiled slightly. Divya was mentally ill and neither Divya nor Amar knew of their last janam. She could easily have them killed or drugged since they were right under the same roof. Those two made a grave mistake in coming back here.
"Now I can destroy them again. Tomorrow's sunrise their problems will begin. Just like Sagar and Vidya were forced to run, Amar and Divya will run. This time I'll make sure they don't come back ever," she chuckled to herself.
Then her mind shifted to last night. Had it been real or had it been a nightmare? She shook her head.
" Nahin sub ek bura sapna tha," she assured herself.
She opened the door, when suddenly something fell all over her. She gazed at herself and felt the liquid soaking her clothes. Then it registered to her brain, this looked like blood.
" Nahin!," she screamed.
It echoed in the hallway,
Chachi and Kamna were watching a movie in the hall so no one really heard. However Amar felt the vibration of the echo. He felt more at peace.
" Good it worked!," he mumbled.
Rajeev tapped him on the shoulder.
" Amar kya hua?," he inquired.
He merely shook his head.
" Kuch toh nahin. Now tell me what you called me here to say," Amar said.
" Beta tum aur Divya aaj raat ko Beneras jao gaye," he stated.
" I want to leave this house soon. I respect you and Mauhaji but our real home is in Beneras. Don't worry we'll come visit you. Chintu needs to come here for follow up appointments. No matter the truth, I'll always consider him my younger brother," he stated.
Rajeev nodded in understanding.
Sindoora gave them all grueling looks at the breakfast table. Amar had to refrain from laughing. Really he would rather be in Beneras where he really felt at home.
Divya sat slurping her milk. She batted her eye lashes at Sindoora every now and then. Amar realized Sindoora's bubble would burst any second, so her nudged Divya. She frowned at him.
" Divya we are at the dining table. You should sit quietly and eat. You can play with your dolls later. Maybe Kamna will join you," he stated.
Kamna flashed them a smile.
" Sure Amar Bhaiya, hum sub saath mein khel lenge," she said.
Sindoora rolled her eyes.
Divya smiled and started to behave better for the rest of the meal.
In the evening, the decorations were complete. Amar and Divya's things were packed and in the getaway car.
' The car is ready for you two. I'll tell Mom I have to leave. I don't want to stay here much longer. Kamna will stay until her grandparents leave for their trip next week. I will go back to my place after you two are married and safe," Bharat stated.
" Thanks Bharat. I hope you can find your father soon," Amar stated.
Bharat turned solemn.
" Yes I hope so too. He disappeared from the hospital two weeks back. I want him to stay with me," he stated.
Amar put an assuring hand on his shoulder.
Meanwhile, Mahua and Kamna were helping Divya get ready.
She wore a parrot colored lengha with gold embroidery. Her hair was curled and in a half up and half down look. Her jewelry glimmered with the glow on her face.
Mahua placed a black dot on her face to ward off evil eyes.
" If I am lucky to have another child, I want him or her to have a cute smile like yours, Divya," Kamna stated.
Divya blushed slightly. How she longed to give her a hug. However now things had to be kept discrete.
Sindoora walked into the room as usual without permission.
" How much more time Mahua, all the guests are waiting," she stated.
" She is ready," Mahua said as Kamna turned Divya around.
Sindoora stood there shocked. Divya looked so normal. Had she been tricking the whole family all this time? She decided she would send a waiter with drinks to Divya at the party. Then the truth would come out.
Divya merely smiled back at Sindoora.
"You are not going to win this time Sindoora Pratap Singh," she thought to herself.
