Two years had been passed to that incident. When pari had left, none tried to find her even not shahram. He wanted to find her but her letter which he was having, was not allowing his feelings and emotions to get her back.
It was evening; everyone was sitting in living area to have coffee. Shahram used to live calm and rejuvenated after that incident otherwise he was very jolly man. Samia was gossiping about her NGO and etc when they heard a knock on the door. Uzaam went to open and he was winced to see that umair was standing there with a lady beside him. Uzaam pointed him to come in.
All were shocked to see him and stood from their respective seats
Shahram: how dared you to enter in my house? You bastard! (He rushed towards him and held his collar yelling at him)
Uzaam asked him to leave his collar and moved him back to hear his suo motto
Samia: uzaam, shahram is right! Get out Umair! We don’t want to see your face; why have you come here? Are you planning again to humiliate us? (She was yelling at him but she was also feared that he might reveal the truth. Though Umair was her brother but she was not used to remain in his touch because of family)
Umair: you just shut up samia! You have used me to ruin an innocent life and now you are ruining me and my married life!
Samia: what the hell are you talking about? (She was shocked; her fear was thrilling her body)
Umair: shahram I have come to tell you the truth (He rushed towards shahram who was gazing him in anger)
Shahrm: truth? What truth? (He calmed himself when he asked him to hear the truth)
Umair: shahram, pari was innocent; she had not married me. Neither I had asked her nor did she! She loved you only man!
Shahram: oh really! After two and half years, you have come to tell me that she used to love me damn it
Umair: yes shahram she didn’t betray you. It was samia who played with her life
Shahram: if she was not married to you, what was mystery of those papers; her nikkah and what…what about her signatures? (He was shocked to hear him and he was stammering that what was Umair trying to prove)
Samia: no shahram he is telling a lie now! He is trying to trap us (when she found herself insecure, she rushed towards shahram and aksed him not to believe)
Umair: no it was she, who trapped you all and ruined an innocent soul forever! And pari was right, she had come to my boutique one day before her marriage with sanaya and Sara because samia had asked her to try her dress at my boutique and it was sanaya who asked her to have snaps with me. And finally the nikkah papers….those papers were fake and her signatures were taken by trapping her and it was Sara who fooled her to sign on those papers (he pointed towards Sara who was standing in a corner already feeling guilt and sorrow for her sister) Umair went to her
Umair: Sara it’s time to speak up and stand for your sister’s respect! Please speak and tell them the actual dilemma
Sara: yes he is right, pari didn’t sign on nikkah’s documents but I had asked her that those were shares’ documents which I and uzaam were supposed to gift her on her wedding day and that’s why she signed them but she didn’t know that I was taking her signature on nikkah papers!
Shahram: but why did you not tell me that before damn it? (he was shocked to hear that and yelled at Sara)
Sara: because I had been blind in lust of money and so.called respect (she started crying). I ruined my sister and my Allah will never forgive me
Samia: no they all are telling lie; I had not asked them to do….why would I do?
Umair: because you wanted shahram to marry with sanaya rather than pari. And now your that fake is ruining me and my wife also that’s why it’s now your turn to suffer. (He said in anger and moved outside without uttering anything more)
Shahram was standing there as his body had been frozen. Rehman came beside him to hug him but he waved his hand off. His tears started rolling from his eyes on his cheeks
SHAHRAM PLEASE LISTEN TO ME JUST FOR ONCE; PLEASE GIVE ME AT LEAST ONE CHANCE TO EXPLAIN MYSELF PLEASE(Two souls met, little time spent);
I AM NOT MARRIED TO HIM, PLEASE FOR GOD’S SAKE BELIEVE ME (Hearts were meant, cruel is the moment);
I LOVED YOU ONLY TINTIN; I WILL LOVE YOU TILL LAST BREATH OF MY LIFE (Love unfulfilled…..)
YOU ARE NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU ARE NOT TENURE OF MY LOVE (Time had flown, separate roads were taken),
DIVORCE HER (Lives of their own, they never met again);
SHAHRAM PLEASE TRUST ME, I AM YOUR ROSHINI ……… (Still love unfulfilled…!)
Shahram was remembering her each and every word in his heart, taking steps backward. Rehman tried a lot to stop him but he didn’t. He went to his room.
Raid turned to samia and slapped her
Raid: I must have slapped you before at least today we would have not been suffering a lot.
She was dump folded when he slapped her. She bowed before him to ask his pardon but before she could speak, raid rushed from there. She remembered the words of pari:
TRUTH CAN NEVER BE HIDDEN; IT HAS TO BE REVEALED ONE DAY AND I WILL WAIT FOR THAT DAY!
She closed her eyes tightly, she was crying madly in a guilt to ruin her and that day there was left nothing neither for her nor for her daughter for the sake of whom, she did that all.
After that shahram and his all family members tried their level best to find her but they could not.
It was midnight when Shahram was in his room, holding that letter in his hand,
Look! How your destiny could be ruined and lurched at once!
Look! How your home can be distracted as piece of mud!
Each path seems to be engrossed by hate
None leads to transgress to love
Where you are and…….where I AM!
Look! How an autumn can bring you to distraction with no end! Look………
ROSHINIIIIIIIII (he yelled, crushing that letter in his grip)
Please come back please come to punish me but please come back……..he swallowed his sob but darkness didn’t let him swallow his emptiness and loneliness!
