Snehith immediately went to the hospital and asked the receptionist about Advaita. He rushed to her room. She was sleeping. He slowly went to her, and his eyes were filled with happy tears for finding her. He bent and slowly kissed her forehead which made Advaita woke up. She was shocked seeing him and pushed him away.
"Why did you come again? Why are you torturing me like this? Go away from here," Advaita shouted at him.
"Advaita, please listen to me. I love you," Snehith said.
"I hate you. If you don't go from here, I will kill myself."
She said and took her glass bangle. She broke it and threatened Snehith saying that she will cut her wrist with it. He didn't understand why she is behaving in this way, but for the first time, he saw love for him in her eyes along with hidden pain. He immediately came out to stop her from attempting suicide.
He was disturbed and felt helpless. He didn't understand how to make Advaita understand his pure love. He loves her so much. He can't imagine anyone else as wife in his life except Advaita. His eyes were showing the pain of his heart in the form of tears. He wanted to heal her. He wanted to keep her happy throughout his life. But for all this, he should know her past and the reason behind her broken heart. He sat on a bench in the hospital premises. He remembered Akshara. Yes, only she can help him now in knowing the reason behind his soul mate's heart break. He called Akshara and met her in the clinic.
"Doctor, I want to know about Advaita's past. I want to know why is she going away from me?" Snehith asked Akshara.
"I can't say that to you, Snehith. It is against the principles of my profession," Akshara said.
He was frustrated with her answer. Now he lost his patience. His love, Advaita was in the hospital bed for trying to take away her life. He was unable to convince her through his love, as he didn't know the reason. He threw everything on the table and Akshara was shocked with his insane behavior.
"A doctor's duty is to save the life of a person but now if u don't say the truth to me, indirectly you will b the reason behind my death and Advaita's suicide," Snehith said.
"What? What happened to Advaita?" Akshara asked.
"She attempted suicide. I can't see her in pain. Now if you don't tell the truth I will kill myself," he threatened Akshara to find out the truth.
He took the knife from his pocket and cut his wrist. His hand was bleeding, but he didn't allow Akshara to aid him. Akshara was shocked seeing his love on Advaita and convinced to tell the truth. She did first aid to him.
"Advaita had a very dark past. She faced hell in her life. She is almost dead, but her courage and confidence kept her alive till now. I will tell you the truth, but I didn't know how will you react after listening to it," Akshara said sighing.
Akshara closed her eyes for some time.
She started telling Advaita's past.
"Girls in teenage confuse between infatuation and love. They trust flirts and spoil their life. I am not saying all arranged marriages are successful, but at least they will have family support if anything goes wrong. Okay, let me tell her past,"
A girl was under a blanket in sleeping mode and slowly took the blanket off. It was Advaita. She stretched her hands and opened her eyes. A beautiful smile was on her face. A smile which is pure from her heart and was visible in her eyes. Her room was beautifully decorated with color papers and balloons.
"Mom, I need a coffee," Advaita shouted.
"Happy birthday, baby," her grand mother wished her.
"Happy Birthday, dear," her grand father said.
"Good morning, baby. Happy Birthday" her dad and mom said.
"Wish you many more happy returns of the day, sweety," her brother and sister-in-law said.
Advaita smiled and got up from her bed.
"Thank you, grandma, grand papa, mom, dad, brother and my dear sister in law. I love you, all," Advaita said happily.
She got ready in a half sari and took blessings from the elders. Her brother came in with a newspaper.
"Hey! Listen, everyone, Advaita's results were out. She topped in the university," her brother told her.
"We are proud of you, doll. You always make us proud," her dad said caressing her hairs.
"Thank you, papa."
In the evening a grand party was arranged for Advaita's birthday. She cut the cake and fed her dad and mom.
In the family, everyone treated her with love and affection. Everyone valued her words and trusted her. One day, her father asked everyone to gather in the hall.
"We got a marriage proposal for Advaita. His name is Snehith Kumar Agarwal. He is a young and successful entrepreneur. I chose him for our Advaita because he became successful with his hard work and dedication," her dad said.
"But Dad, we need to inquire about him. Till then don't take any decision Because we must be careful as we are giving our Advaita to him. Rest of the life she should be happy as she is with us," her brother Akshay said.
"Yes, our Advaita should get the same love which we are giving now," her grand father said.
"Advaita, why are you silent? See his photo once and tell us your opinion," her dad asked her.
"No, I... I.." Advaita stammered.
"Are you in love with anyone?" Advaita's father asked her.
"Dad," Advaita was scared to answer.
"It is ok, princess. Tell us what is there in your heart. If the boy is suitable to you and good, I will talk with his parents. We never compel you to marry a person whom you don't like," her dad assured her.
Advaita hugged her dad and told the details about the person.
"Dad, his name is Jashwesh. He is my classmate. He had no one, but he is good," she said.
Advaita brother inquired about Snehith and her love Jashwesh.
"Dad, Snehith is a gem. He loves our Advaita from two years, but he didn't propose. He was her senior in college. He settled in his life and now approached us through his parents. I think he is perfect for our Advaita. His family is also sweet. I am sure they will give her the same love which we gave her till now. She will be happy with Snehith. Snehith makes her every moment with him as a memory," Akshay told his father.
"What about Jashwesh?" Advaita's father asked.
"Dad, I am sorry to say. Jashwesh is a jerk. He just pretended as if he is good before our Advaita. His family too left him because of his behavior. He is such a jerk who loved many girls and trapped them. One of the girls went to his room, and when she is changing her dress, he took photos through the secret camera. He forwarded those pictures to his friends. That girl committed suicide. Police arrested him, but as there was no proof, he was released from the jail," Akshay explained about Jashwesh.
They told everything to Advaita, but she didn't trust them as Jashwesh brainwashed her saying that her parents never agree to their marriage as he is poor. Her family tried to convince her but if no use. Finally, her dad decided to do the engagement with Snehith against her wish. Advaita disagreed with them. She kept a letter and went off from home. Her engagement was canceled.
Jashwesh took her to a temple and married her. He took her to his room. She is happy for marrying him. They consummated their marriage. In the morning, she woke up and was shocked to see someone else in bed with her. She immediately got up and tried to remember what happened the last night. She just remembered having milk given by Jashwesh. She was unable to remember anything. She shouted, and Jashwesh came inside.
"Who is he? What's the hell is this?" Advaita yelled at Jashwesh.
"I married you just for money. But you disagreed to go to your family after our marriage. You are not ready to ask for your share in the property. So, I sold you to my friends," Jashwesh said.
Advaita felt as if the Earth under her feet was broken. She tried to escape, but Jashwesh slapped her hard. She fell unconscious. By the time she woke up, she had found another one in bed. Five people raped her and tortured her for one week.
Finally one day she got an empty alcohol bottle. She broke the bottle and injured Jashwesh with the broken glass bottle. She threatened others and escaped from there. She reached an NGO as she is already a volunteer in the NGO from her college days. They helped her n contacted police. Police tried to arrest them, but they didn't find anyone in the room, not even Jashwesh body though she suspects he was dead. They informed to her family.
"For us, already our daughter was dead at the moment she eloped. Now we are not concerned whatever happened to her," her dad said and disconnected the call.
Advaita stayed in the NGO for three months. She was a living dead who lost all her hopes of life. She cried day and night. She was unable to digest the pity looks of the people around her.
She decided to leave the place and people who knew her past. She came to the city and sat in the railway station having no idea where to go and how to live. This world is big, but she was alone in this world. The Mother in the orphanage saw her and brought her to the Home.
Akshara told Snehith about Advaita's past.
"Just her courage kept her alive till now. Now tell me Snehith, are you willing to marry her? Can you stay with her throughout your life? I know you can't because society is like that.
A boy can have many affairs but will be respected by the society. But if a girl got cheated and anything happened like this, society blames her. I am not supporting Advaita's step of going away with Jashwesh. But mistakes happen in life. Just the decision which she took in one second changed her entire life. Can you forgive her and accept her?" Akshara asked Snehith.
Snehith went off from there without answering her. He came to his room and locked it. He destroyed everything in the room. He threw his table and bed. He broke the mirror by punching it. His hand was bleeding. But he again hit the wall with his bleeding hand. He was unable to control himself. Tears were flowing down from his eyes.
Suddenly his phone rang. It's a new number, and he attended the call.
"Snehith, this is Advaita. Akshara told me that she revealed about my past to you. Please, I am sorry. Don't hurt yourself," Advaid said on the phone.
Snehith was fuming with anger and pain. Her words increased his anger
"Shut up, Advaita. Who asked you to call me now? Don't show your fake concern for me. Just shut up. You want me to leave you, right? Yes, now I am leaving you. I never want to see your face again in my love. I hate you."
Snehith disconnected the call. His voice is so rude and harsh. Advaita first time heard his voice that harsh. Her eyes filled with tears. She knows no one will stay with her but still it was hurting to know that Snehith left her.
Snehith was crying. His phone vibrated. He saw his phone, and it was a message from Advaita. He tried to delete it, but he couldn't do that and opened the msg.
"Snehith, I am sorry but please don't hurt yourself. I regret missing you. The days which I spent with you are the most memorable days in my life. After a long time, I smiled again with your words and behavior. Thank you.
I won't show my face to you again. Take care. Forget me and be happy."
Snehith deleted her message and threw his phone away. He cried sitting on the floor leaning backward the door.
