Sid was standing on the door having tears in his eyes. Mahi had heard everything. She walked toward him. He looked at her like he would start crying loudly next moment only.
“Bhabhi, she is misunderstanding me. I hurt her. She is angry with me. She doesn’t want to talk to me.” He cried looking at her.
“Sid, her anger is justified. You hid such a big thing from her. Give her some time, she will surely understand you, Sid.” Mahi put her hand on his shoulder and squeezed it slightly. She tried her best to calm him down.
“I’m guilty. I should have told her.” He looked down in guilt.
“Sid, please don’t feel guilty. You hid this news for her only. I am telling you, she will understand you. Give her some time.” She held his face and made him look at her.
“I never wanted to hurt her, Bhabhi, but I, I hurt her. I broke my promise. Today she cried because of me.” He cried resting his forehead on her shoulder. Mahi tried to console him by rubbing his back and let him cry for a few minutes.
“I am bad husband, ” he looked at her. His words were clearly showing that he was disappointed with himself for hurting his angel and for bringing tears in her beautiful eyes.
“Stop talking like that Sid. Don’t say this in front of Sana.” She spoke angrily cutting his word.
“Mumma..” Mahi was about to say something but she got stopped listening to Muskan’s voice from behind. He immediately wiped his tears with the back of his palm, seeing Muskan.
“Chachu, aap lo rhai thai na? Musu ne sabh dekh liya. (Chachu, you were crying, right? Musu saw everything.)” She reached toward them and asked from Sid.
“Chachu, batao na aap kyu lo lai thai? Musu ko jana hai kuki aap toh kabhi nhi lote. (Chachu tell me, why were you crying? Musu wants to know because I never saw you crying.)” she asked and shook him holding his hand. Sid was looking at her blankly. At that moment, he wasn’t understanding what he should tell her.
“Musu, Chachu wasn’t crying. Actually, something went in his eyes.” Mahi handled the situation on the right time. Muskan looked at Sid for confirmation and he nodded his head in yes.
“Ab nikal gya kya? ( Now Is it come out ?)” she asked from Sid. He smiled faintly at her and nodded his head in yes putting a hand on her face.
“Mumma chalo mele sath, musu ko aapko apni painting dikhani hai (Mumma come with me, Musu wants to show you her painting.)” She said holding her mother’s hand and started dragging her out of the room.
“Take care, ” Before going with Muskan, Mahi mouthed to him. Sid nodded his head in yes slightly.
Muskan was drawing something sitting on the sofa while Mahi was roaming across room worriedly. She was hell worried for Sid. She had never seen him crying like this before. She was trying to call Jay but he wasn’t picking up the call.
“Jay, why weren’t you picking up my calls? I was calling you from half an hour.” She yelled on the phone when finally he picked up the phone.
“Jaan, I was in a meeting. What happened? Why are you so angry and why were you calling me continuously? Is everything alright?” Jay asked concernedly. Mahi sighed deeply and told him everything.
“Mahi, they are husband and wife now. These small fights are common between husband and wife. See us only, how much we fight but it doesn’t affect our love. In fact, our relationship becomes stronger with every fight. Now don’t think too much about them.” She smiled slightly understanding his words.
“What’s the matter, Mr Shukla? When did you become so sensible? I am highly impressed.” Jay was grinning listening to her words.
“Oh madam, I am sensible from my childhood. It’s not my fault that you didn’t come to know before.” Jay spoke in attitude and Mahi laughed.
“You are very cute, Jay.” She said between her laugh. Jay was smiling listening to her laugh. Her laughs were giving peace to his soul.
“Seriously Jay, I am highly impressed by you today. But still, I want you to talk to Sid for once. You can explain to him better than me.”Jay smiled, listening to her words. He was blessed to have a wife like her who cared for him and his family equally.
“Of course, I will talk to him, you don’t need to say this to me. I will give him a tight slap also for crying like a small baby.” Both laughed at his words.
Sid walked out from the bathroom after splashing water over his face. He was rubbing his face with the white towel. He stopped rubbing his face and pulled down his hand when his eyes fell over Sana who was strolling toward him. He kept the towel on the sofa.
“I am sorry.” Both said in union looking at each other when she reached in front of him.
“Why are you saying sorry?” He asked looking at her confusingly.
“Because I shouted at you without any reason. I shouldn’t have behaved like this with you. You care for me so much. I should have listened to you. I just said.. that you don’t trust me without thinking anything. I should have thought that there would be some reason for keeping that news hidden from me. I am sorry” The guilt was clearly visible in her eyes. Sid was happy because without any explanation, she understood him herself.
“Don’t be a sorry, angel. Your anger was justified because I hid such a big news from you.” He cupped her face and made her look at him.
“But I misunderstood you.” She spoke having guilt in her voice and eyes.
“It’s okay. I can understand. But I am so happy that now you understood me without any explanation.” He spoke happily and she smiled slightly.
“I didn’t want you to come across this news because I didn’t want you to get upset after reading it. I wanted to keep you away from the negativity. I have already seen you in so much pain that now I can’t bear even a single tear in your eyes.” Sana was looking at him having so much love in her eyes, his thumbs were softly caressing her cheeks. “I trust you, Sana. I knew that you would not judge me by reading this news. I hid the news just to keep you away from negativity.”
“I know you trust me, Sid. I really love you and I am so lucky to have you in my life.” She held his hand and kissed his palm closing her eyes.
“I love you more, Angel” he also confessed tucking her hair behind her ear which was falling on her face. She smiled at him.
“But Sid, who leaked this news and why ?” She asked confusingly looking at him. He sighed and told her everything.
“Just to make the song popular, how could he defame you? Sid, he should be punished.” She freaked out.
“People would be saying so bad about you.” She became sad.
“Relax, angel. Everything is under control. I have kept a press conference and after that everything will be fine. People will talk about this for a few days and after that, they will forget. Don’t worry.” he cupped her face and explained her calmly. She nodded her head understanding him.
“Now, I am getting late for the press conference. I have to go. You take care and don’t worry, everything will be fine.” He kissed her forehead and she closed her eyes in response.
“I also want to come with you.” He turned to walk, but she stopped him holding his hand.
“Sana, you can’t come.” He denied, turning his face toward her and she became sad.
“I don’t want you to face those bullshit questions of reporters, angel. Please understand.” He walked toward her and said while caressing her hair.
“Sid, I can face anything with you and for you. Your love has made me strong. So don’t worry. Please,” she requested him, he nodded his head in yes, but he was worried for her and it was written on his face.
“If they say something wrong about you then you see me how I will shut their mouth.” She said, having anger in her eyes. Sid was looking impressed with her. Then they walked out from the room holding each other hands.
Don’t forget to tell, how do find the update. And please do like. Your response matters a lot to me.
