Amongst everything, i kind of lost all connections with my sister. I was so busy in my life, that i forgot how her life was going on...i forgot that she was my younger sister and she needed my support....i forgot everything. I became selfish.
Today, when i came to know how much i have missed on in her life, i have only tears left in this dark night. I lost my battle. I couldn't become a good sister. But now i will try. Try and become someone whom she loves. I want to be her best friend. Forever.
I want to mend our bond which is unbreakable but is wounded. I want my sister back. I would now make sure that she is fine.
With this, i wrapped up a chocolate or dairy milk to be very precise, and kept it in her cupboard.
Tomorrow was a new beginning. Now i would make sure that i take time out for my sister. I would play UNO with her tomorrow and also talk with her.
Tomorrow our unbreakable bond would work together.
Well I knew that one day would come, when Gunjan would come to know about the truth. But I didn't ever know that this day would come. How could Nupur hide such a big truth from me? Says the person who tortured her so much!
But was it my mistake? No, but it wasn't her fault either. Her fault? Her sin! She made me cry like anything. She completely broke me down. She made me do things, which I would have never done in my life. She made me a monster.
It's irony that, me, the person who could never see a single tear in her eyes, want to give her a lifetime of tears. Are you serious? Yes! Then why are you waiting for her in the ward? Why are you praying to God for her welfare? It's because-umm…I want to be the one giving her pain.
I tried to reason out with myself. But I couldn't deny the fact that it was equally paining me. No matter how much I pretended that I hate her, I can't deny the fact that there is still a part of my heart which secretly loves her. I can't believe why. Because you can never be the person you are pretending to be.
Yeah, true. But she made me do this. I can't say that I do enjoy seeing her hurt, but when I get closer to her, even if it's for tormenting her, I feel good. Try saying, blessed. Yeah, I feel that. Anyways, why the hell is the doctor taking so long? She is so tiny, they could have inspected her easily.
"Why did you have to do this Mayank?" Gunjan asked me. I stared at her incredulously. What have I done? Oh, yeah, tormented her sister. I maintained a calm face and said, "You don't know anything Gunjan. If you knew everything, you would have been on my side. Nupur was the one to betray me."
She smirked. Did she really smirk? Gunjan had never smirked once in her entire life! Was there something she knew and I didn't? She smiled and said, "No, not me. It's you who don't know the truth Mayank. I wish you had asked her yourself. She never betrayed you. Even after you did so many horrible things with her, she still loves you." I couldn't believe her.
I said, "She never loved me. She just played with my emotions! Even if she loved me, she never had the right to do the things she did, without my knowledge. I hate her Gunjan, I just hate her." She smirked again. What the hell was happening? She said, "Oh! You hate her, do you? Then why are you waiting for her like anything? Anyways, maybe before jumping to conclusions, you should have asked her everything. She was broken when she told me the truth. And I thought that you were right, and that's why I agreed to pretend that I am your fiance."
Ohk, I wasn't shocked. It was our plan to teach her a lesson. I just pretended to be her soon-to-be-brother-in-law. I did that to make her understand everything and break her pride. Gunjan smiled at me and said, "Mayank, you are my best friend and my first love, but you have to understand that she is my sister. Between the two of you, I would choose my sister. I have been so ignorant towards her feelings. I never showed her that I loved her. I pretended to be the witch who had snatched the most important person in her life. But you know that I love her. As much as I still love you, I am trying to move on from you. I guess it was wrong on my part to love you."
Ohk, that was shocking! She loved me? How could she? Seeing me perplexed and shocked face, she continued, "Yes, Mr. Mayank Sharma. I am in love with you. Even though you never noticed me in that way and secretly were attracted to my sister, I loved you. I never confessed because I could see you secretly loving my sister. I know that she was egoistic and proud, but I could see her loving you too. She was trying not to fall for you, but she eventually did. And you, what the hell is wrong with you? You even married her for God sake! Just because of a little misunderstanding, you chose to leave her! Why?"
I knew all those answers. I was afraid to give them out. I could trust no one. She smiled at my face and asked me a simple question, "Just tell me one truth, do you still love her?" How could I lie to her? Damn-it, I love her! I knew that I couldn't lie to my best friend. I loved Gunjan too much to lie to her. But obviously, my love for Gunjan was brotherly. The only girl whom I loved was Nupur.
I nodded and said, "Yes Gunjan, I still love her. I never stopped." At this moment, her face broke into a smile while her eyes were full of tears. I knew why. Her heart was broken, yet she carried a bold outlook for my sake. I opened my arms for her. She hugged me and sobbed on my chest.
She smiled and said, "I am very happy that you love my sister. I should be happy, but I don't know why, but it still pains. I am sorry Mayank. I shouldn't have had fallen for you. Trust me; truth is far crueler than you think. I want to tell you the truth, but I think that you deserve to know it on your own. Please take care of her Mayank. I love my baby doll."
I smiled at her, but before I could say anything, a nurse came out of her ward. Nurse said, "Mr. Mayank Sharma, you should really take care of your wife. Especially in this condition, she needs proper rest. There is not thing to worry for. She just fainted due to some emotional turmoil or physical exhaustion. But they both are fine now."
Both? What does that mean? I gathered my courage and asked, "Umm, what do you mean by 'both'?" She looked shocked. She asked me, "Don't tell me that you don't know that your wife is three months pregnant!"
And she went inside. While I felt that the floor beneath my legs had slipped away. She was pregnant? Nupur was pregnant! With my child! I was going to be a father! I felt my heartbeats going crazy. When I glanced at Gunjan, I could see shock evident in her eyes. Then I came to know about a realization. Can I forgive her now, when she is bearing my child in her womb? Does she deserve it?
