Next day Snehith woke up and thought to get out of bed. But he saw Advaita sleeping holding his shirt tightly n hugging him which shows her fear. He didn't get up as it disturbs her sleep and caressed her hair.
"I can't see you in this condition. I want to see peace and happiness in your face. I will do it anyway."
Advaita woke up from her slumber and looked at him.
"Good morning, darling," Snehith said, pulling her closer to him.
"Good morning," Advaita said.
"Did you sleep well?"
"Yes, better than before."
While getting up, Advaita's nuptial chain stuck with his shirt button. Snehith tried to separate them and suddenly his hand touched Advaita's cheek. Advaita thought to get up but her lips touched his cheek. Snehith pulled Advaita towards him and brushed her lips with his forefinger. Advaita shivered with his proximity as it remembered her bitter past. Advaita escaped from him and Snehith went for his shower understanding her fear.
Sweetheart, go and get fresh up. Let's hav breakfast and go out. You have a surprise," Snehith said.
Advaita came to him and held his hand.
"I am sorry. I will try soon to forget my past and behave normally with you. I know I am your wife and shouldn't stay away from you. But..."
Snehith smiled hearing her words.
"Why do you think that you are behaving abnormally? There is no rule that wife should move close with husband from the very first day of their marriage. Every one needs time to get comfortable and accept husband. We have lifetime for it and I am in no hurry. Stop worrying and get ready," Snehith said.
Advaita went for a shower. She came out to get ready and saw a packet on the bed. She opened it and saw a beautiful lemon yellow colored dress in it. She wore it and Snehith came to her with the breakfast.
"I brought something for you. I do not know whether you will like it or not," Advaita said.
"Anything from you to me is very precious for me."
Advaita presented a ring to him with his photo in it.
"Ring is really nice but I would like it more if it has your picture," Snehith said.
Advaita smiled and pressed a small button which is on the side of the ring. Her picture displayed on it and then, their wedding photo.
"Wow! It's wonderful. Tell me how did you buy it?"
"I have some money with me," Advaita said, without looking at him.
"How did you get that money?"
Advaita stayed silent and Snehith noticed her hands without bangles.
"Did you sell your bangles for this?"
"What's the necessity to present it to me by selling your bangles now?"
"I want to present you something as soon as we got married as my memory. So I bought it for you when I went to the orphanage to bring my sari which you have gifted me for the engagement.
"I love you," Snehith said, kissing on her forehead.
"I love you too," Advaita said.
Both had their breakfast and he took her for the site seeing. Advaita enjoyed the beautiful greenery and peaceful location. Her heart started singing after a long time with happiness. She caught his hand and walked through the green farm. After sometime, Snehith closed her eyes and took her a far little before opening her eyes.
"Here is your surprise," Snehith said.
"Brother," Advaita said.
Advaita's brother stood there. Advaita hugged her brother as they haven't met each other after the nightmare of her life.
"How are you, chinni? I am so sorry for not helping you at that time. After that I searched a lot for you. I couldn't find you. I miss you a lot."
"It's ok, bhaiya. I too miss you."
"Snehith contacted me recently and told that you are getting married to him. I am so happy for that. He is a very gud person and I am sure you will be happy with Snehith."
"Yes. He loves me a lot. How are grand ma, grand pa, maa, dad, sister in law and our younger brother?"
He stayes silent.
"Is everything ok, bhaiya?"
"Grand ma expired with heart attack after knowing what happened to you. Grand pa also expired as soon as grand ma expired. Mom and dad totally lost their happyness. Mom remembers you a lot but dad is still angry at you."
Knowing that her grand parents expired because of her, Advaita was broken and cried falling on her knees. Snehith consoled her. After that both took her to the hotel room. Snehith asked Advaita's brother to leave as she needs to rest. Advaita woke up after sometime.
"Are you okay?" Snehith asked Advaita.
"I thought that you will be happy seeing your brother but..."
"I am hpy to see him but..."
"I can understand your pain. You can't change the past by worrying and cursing yourself. Forget it. But change your future. Bring back the lost happiness into the lives of your family.
"But how? They won't even accept me as their daughter."
"Do anything that makes your parents proud of you. World sees the success of a person but not their past or hardwork they have gone through. So kindle the fire in your heart and cherish your dreams. Your family will accept you if you make them happy and proud to say that Advaita is their daughter. If you think, you can do it," Snehith said, trying to change the perspective of Advaita towards the life.
"But what can I do?"
"Look Advaita, everyone borns with a purpose. Whatever happens in our life, happens for a reason which drives us towards our purpose. Think till you find your purpose. And remember I am with you," Snehith said holding Advaita's hands assuring her that whatever it is, her husband never leaves her.
Advaita went into deep thoughts regarding her purpose of life. Now her thoughts are rounding towards not only to reach to the heart of their parents but also to do something for innocent girls who are falling into trap and becoming prey for idoits. She decided something and hugged Snehith with a smile.
In the evening, they met her brother and Advaita had a fantastic time with him. After his departure, Snehith and Advaita went to shopping.
"Snehith, I want that," Advaita said in a low voice.
"What is that?"
Snehith looked around and didn't understand what Advaita is asking. Advaita pointed her finger towards something that brought instant smile on Snehith's face.
"Are you asking for a pink cotton candy?"
"Yes, I love it."
"Are you a kid?" Snehith said, teasing Advaita.
However, it is her childishness that made him fall for her. Maturity is necessary in life but at times and in few relationships, childishness preserves the sweetness of the bonding.
"Yes, I am a kid for you. Now please go and buy it for me."
"Sure but on one condition," Snehith said, coming closer to her.
"After going to room, you have to give me my favourity cotton candy," Snehith whispered in her ears with a naughty smile.
"I will buy it myself."
"Then I will give you my favourite cotton candy after going to our room."
"Snehith, please stop it," Advaita said blushing hard to his words.
"Ok. I will get it for you. You can wait here."
Snehith gave the cotton candy to Advaita and while having it, suddenly Advaita shocked seeing someone.
"Advaita, are you ok?"
Advaita fainted and Snehith took her to the hotel room. After sometime, she came into conscious.
"What happened to you? Why are you so frightened?"
"I saw Jashwesh."
"What? You said he is dead."
"Yes, but today I saw him," Advaita said, sweating badly.
"Don't worry. It might be an illusion."
"No. It's not an illusion. I saw Jashwesh."
"Ok, don't worry let's find it out. Now please stop worrying. I can't see you in this condition," Snehith said hugging Advaita.
Why is my past interfering with my life again. I want to make Snehith happy. He loves me so much. I shouldn't make him worried for me.I must control my emotions.
Advaita made herself relaxed seeing Snehith worried for her.
