Next day, Akshara visited the hospital to see Advaita. Snehith came to the hospital. Akshara felt happy seeing him coming for Advaita again. Advaita didn't understand why did he come again for her after yelling at her the last night. She didn't expect him to visit her after knowing her past.
"Doctor, if you don't mind, I want to talk with her," Snehith said to Akshara.
Akshara went out. Advaita hesitated to speak. She was scared remembering his harsh voice in the previous day. Snehith looked into her eyes. He cupped her face and kissed her lips.
"I don't know how to express my love in any other way better than this," Snehith said kissing her forehead.
Advaita was weeping. She doesn't expect this from Snehith. She never knew that Snehith's love is this pure and sincere.
How can he love me this much? What do I do to deserve this love? She asked herself.
He embraced her in a hug filled with his love.
"This is to clarify you that no matter what happened or happens, I will be with you throughout your life. If you trust me, marry me. I promise you that I will bring back all your lost happiness. I ACCEPT YOU AS YOU ARE," Snehith said.
"No, I am not right for you. please try to understand," Advaita said.
Snehith sat beside her and cupped her face.
"Only you are right for me because I love you and only you had a place in my heart.
For the first time, I saw you when you were singing a song on the stage. I loved your voice. After that, I saw you selling handicrafts made by you to collect the funds for orphans. I loved your idea of not simply asking donations but using your talent to raise funds. Next, I saw you fighting with a man who wanted to send his mom to an old age home and convincing him. I liked your love towards mom, and I thought you are suitable for my family. I am sure you will give love to everyone in my family.
I didn't propose you at that time because I didn't settle in my career at that point. So, I decided to settle in a profession as soon as possible for you. Whenever I lost my focus on the work, I used to think that I am working for my love and it inspired me to succeed faster. So, you have a part in my success too. After succeeding in my start up, I told my parents about my love and approached your parents. It's true that can't forget u," Snehith explained his love for her.
Advaita was still in confusion and guilt.
"I...I don't trust you. Go away from me, please," She said to hurt him and send him away.
He smiled at her.
"Why are you smiling?" Advaita asked looking at him.
Snehith didn't answer and went to Akshara. He told his decision. He asked hospital authorities to discharge her. He came to her and lifted her in his arms.
"What are you doing? Where are you taking me?" She asked.
"To our home," he said smiling.
"Why? I won't come."
"To create the trust on me," he said winking.
"Now you just close your mouth, or else I will be doing it. But already my hands are not free holding you. So, I may follow my style of shutting your mouth," Snehith said and came near to her lips.
Advaita looked around, and there were many people there.
"No, I will not talk," she said to avoid kiss in public.
Snehith smiled and took her to his home. He dropped her on the bed carefully.
"This is your room. I will be locking it from outside because I didn't want you to leave again. I arranged your clothes in the wardrobe. Get fresh up. I will bring your lunch," Snehith said and went off.
He came after some time and knocked her door.
"Come in," Advaita said.
Both had their lunch. Advaita felt happy seeing Snehith's love and care for her.
"Shall I ask you one thing?" Advaita asked.
"Do you want to marry me with sympathy or love?" Advaita asked.
"For revenge," Snehith replied.
Advaita was shocked.
"Yes, you left me and canceled our engagement. I lost my reputation. So, I want to take revenge on you. I will marry you and then will torture you every second," he said seriously.
Advaita gulped with fear.
"Are you serious?" She asked.
"No, If I am in serious stage, I will be in ICU not at my home," Snehith said hiding his smile seeing her fear.
"Can't you speak seriously for some time?" Advaita asked in irritation.
Snehith changed his expressions and gave serious looks.
"Is it enough?" He asked.
"Snehith, please be serious," Advaita said.
"Advaita, if I have sympathy for you, I would help you to recover and will be a good friend to you forever. But I love you. So, I want to marry you. Moreover, I don't think you are in a position to be sympathised. You are already brave and leading life independently. Why do I show sympathy on you? Do you think that I will marry you for mere sympathy?" Snehith asked her.
"Are you not angry at me for leaving the house before our engagement?"
"No, because love is not wrong. However, you must be careful in choosing the right person. Don't be fooled by sweet words. Try to observe the depth of their words and actions.
The most important thing is never to leave your family who raised you up from the day you born for the one whom you know just for few years. First, try to convince your parents. The decision you take in one-second effects rest of your life. So, you should be very careful. If you are sure about the person whom you love is right, and you knew everything about him, then you can take a risk. I hope my words didn't hurt you," Snehith said.
"Will your parents accept me?"
"They are against our marriage. Before coming to you, I told my parents everything. But they didn't agree. But it's okay. They will understand later. I will convince them slowly," he replied.
"You told me that we have to value the words of our parents. Then now how can you marry me without their consent?"
"I know I am wrong. But I can't miss you again."
"Snehith, please don't hurt your parents. Forget me. You will surely get a perfect girl with the golden heart into your life. Leave me, please. I am not suitable to you."
Snehith kept his finger on her lips.
"No one can replace you in my heart. Love is not to stay with a person when everything is right, but to stay with your beloved when everything went wrong. I will be with you though, the whole world is against you," Snehith said kissing her forehead.
"But.." Advaita tried to speak, but he stopped her.
"I want to be with you to care for you, to understand you, love you, wipe your tears, make you smile and most importantly to make you see urself as one who deserves happiness and love," Snehith's words soothed Advaita's heart making her realize his true love for her.
"But I made a very big mistake in my life," Advaita said.
"I will correct all your mistakes," Snehith said.
"I can't control my emotions and behavior. I will become weird and harsh," Advaita said.
"I will bear your anger and weird behavior. I will make you free from the burden of your past."
"I am not a normal person. I am facing psychological problems after that incident. I will lose my mental balance suddenly."
"My love heals you!" Snehith assured her.
"I don't love you," Advaita said which is true to some extent.
" I love you. One day you will love me for sure."
Advaita observed his hand with bondage. She took it into her hands and guessed what happened. Tears rolled down her eyes.
"Why are you crying seeing my injury if you didn't love me?" Snehith asked.
He wiped her tears.
"I am crying because I am the reason behind this injury."
"Chill, my love. It's a minimal injury."
"Yesterday you were very angry with me. Why did you come to me again today? You told me that you didn't want to see my face again," Advaita asked in a choked tone.
"In anger, I told you those words. To be frank, I can't live without my love. I am sorry for talking like that with you," Snehith said holding her hands and kissing them.
"It's okay. Don't be sorry. I can understand you," Advaita said.
Tomorrow, we are getting married."
"What?" Advaita asked.
"Yes, I decided, and you must agree. No argument on this," he said in a dominating voice.
"No, Please don't be hurry. Think once again."
"I am thinking about you all these days. It's more than enough to make a decision. However, I didn't take this decision in a hurry. I made this decision long back. Though situations changed, my decision didn't change," Snehith said firmly.
Snehith was about to go but stopped as Advaita held his hand. He looked at her.
"I want to talk to you. Please, sit," Advaita said.
"Okay! Tell me fast. I had a meeting. I need to go."
"Okay! I will talk to you later. You please, carry on," she said.
Sometimes saying sorry is also very tough. I can't bear his pure love and forgiveness. How can I apologize him? Advaita thought.
You no need to apologize me. I just want your love. I can't bear you feeling sad and apologizing me because your tears kill me, Snehith thought seeing tears in her eyes.
Snehith went for a meeting and returned home. He came to her room directly, but he found the door open. He remembered that he forgot to lock it while going. He was shocked as Advaita is nowhere in the room.
Oh God! Again this girl left me. How can I explain to her how much I love her, and she meant to me? Why is she considering her bloody past as everything? Where should I search for her now? I hope at least she won't harm herself again, Snehith was worried about her.
His phone rang, and he received the call.
"Hello!" Snehith replied.
"Hello! please come to our terrace," Advaita said
"Advaita! I am coming," Snehith disconnected the call and went to the terrace.
He was relaxed seeing her on the terrace. He hugged her.
"Why did you come out of your room. Didn't I tell you to stay there in the room? Why did you scare me like this? I will kill you if you leave me once again," he scolded her with love.
"Snehith, look at me once," Advaita said blushing.
He saw her and remembered something seeing her sari.
"The same sari which you sent for me to wear for our engagement. When I escaped from home, it was mixed with my luggage. Today I went to the Home and brought my luggage.
"You are looking beautiful in this sari," Snehith said.
He looked around and found terrace decorated with flowers and lights. He turned towards Advaita and saw her kneeling down before him holding both her hands in an apologizing manner.
"Advaita, what is this? Get up first," he said
"I am sorry. Sorry for everything I did. I know it hurt you a lot. But I am very sorry," Advaita said crying.
Snehith made her stand up and hugged her.
"I don't like all this. Advaita, don't think I am doing a favor to you. Nothing like that. I love you n I just want to share my life with you. That's it. I want to marry you. Please don't be sorry to me. What I want to hear from you is I love you not sorry. Are you ready for the marriage, or am I forcing you?" Snehith asked her.
"I am ready for the marriage," Advaita said.
Suddenly, it started raining.
"Come, let's go inside," Snehith said holding her hand.
"I love rain. It is my best friend. Whenever I am happy or sad God showers rain on me to make me feel better," Advaita said playing in the rain.
"You are crazy. You will get sick. Come, let's go," Snehith said.
Advaita started enjoying rain without listening to him. She began dancing, and suddenly she heard the sound of a thunderstorm. She hugged him. Snehith smiled and responded to her hug.
