Chapter 8

  • Snehith was in a dilemma after listening to Advaita's words regarding Jashwesh. Though he couldn't believe her words, he still doesn't want to take any risk with Advaita. Snehith decided to inquiry about Jashwesh.
  • "Advaita, I will bring dinner for us. You just relax and stay in our room," Snehith said.
  • Snehith left the room. Suddenly the power was gone, and Advaita felt an unknown fear in her heart, making her call Snehith louder. Her heartbeat increased, and she clenched her fist, suspecting something wrong. Advaita called Snehith.
  • "Snehith, please come fast. I hate darkness."
  • "Don't worry, sweetheart. I will be there within five minutes," Snehith said and disconnected the call.
  • Advaita went to lock the door, and suddenly she felt someone touching her.
  • "Snehith, Thank God you came. I am sacred of this darkness," Advaita said.
  • The person turned her back and hugged her from behind. He moved his fingers over her bareback. Advaita pushed him with all the force realizing that it's not her husband.
  • "Who are you?" Advaita shouted with fear.
  • She switched on the torch on her mobile, but couldn't find anyone there. She took the knife. Someone touched her shoulder. Advaita attacked the person with the knife making his hand bleed.
  • "Snehith? I....am...sorry," Advaita said with tears.
  • Snehith screamed in pain.
  • "It's ok. Bring the first aid box."
  • Advaita tied the bandage to Snehith's hand with tears in her eyes. She didn't understand whether it's her illusion about Jashwesh and someone entering their room or true. Hurting Snehith increased her worry.
  • Snehith hugged her from the side, seeing her worried and frightened.
  • "What happened to you? I feel something is wrong."
  • Advaita told Snehith what had happened before a few minutes.
  • "When I returned to the room, the door was locked. I opened it with the spare key. How could someone enter into our room when it's locked?"
  • "But I didn't lock the room. I went to lock the door and someone..."
  • "As you are unwell, I locked the room before leaving."
  • "Snehith, you are not believing my words. But it's true that someone came to our room."
  • "Ok, please relax. I won't leave you alone even for a second from now. So that no one can harm you. Tomorrow we will leave to our home. You will be free from these fears."
  • Snehith fed Advaita and gave her the medicine. She hugged him tightly and held his hands.
  • "Don't worry. Sleep now. I am here," Snehith said, patting on Advaita's shoulder and caressing her hairs.
  • Sleep is away from Snehith as his thoughts revolved around Advaita's words about Jashwesh.
  • "Don't worry, Advaita. No one can harm you. I will protect you."
  • Snehith kissed her on the forehead. The next day both came to their home. He got shocked by seeing his parents there. Snehith introduced his parents to Advaita, and the couple took their blessings.
  • "Advaita, ask the cook to make juice for mom and dad."
  • "Why? Don't your wife know even to prepare a juice?" Geetha, Snehith's mom, said sarcastically, seeing Advaita.
  • "Come on, mom. Advaita is unwell," Snehith said.
  • "No one shows sympathy on those who spoil their life with their wrong decisions, ignoring parent's advice."
  • Advaita was in tears understanding the aversion and hatred for her in the words of her mother-in-law. Snehith tried to stop his mom.
  • "Anyways, Advaita bring us two glasses of juice. I don't think you will be tired just for making juice," Geetha said.
  • "Sure, mom. I will bring."
  • "I prefer aunty over mom. Because I never want a daughter like you," Geetha said, remembering Advaita her past. Advaita nodded and went to the kitchen.
  • "Mom, why are you hurting Advaita like that?"
  • "Don't you know the reason? With God's grace, you are alive today. But what if something had happened to you that day?" Geetha said, and Snehith signaled her to stop as Advaita came there. Advaita served juice to them.
  • "Snehith, Shall I prepare lunch?"
  • "Advaita, mom and dad are leaving now. For us, you can ask maid to prepare. Now you get fresh up and take a rest. I will come after sending them.
  • "Are they not going to stay with us? I thought they came to stay with us," Advaita said and left to their room.
  • "Mom, I know I am hurting you. I know the reason behind your anger with Advaita. But no one is perfect in this world. We are humans and commit some or the other mistake in our lifetime. So please forgive her. She is already in pain. We shouldn't increase it. I am sorry for marrying her without you acceptance. May be I am not a good son," Snehith said.
  • "Snehith, don't say that. You are a very good son. We always love you. Your mom concern is about you. If Advaita loves you, keeps you happy and takes care of you, your mom will forget everything.
  • But still you are the one who is caring for her but we didn't see her taking care of you. We don't know how long it takes to make her normal and make her understand her responsibility as a wife. We hope she will be a good life partner to you. We will leave now," Harsha, Snehith's father said.
  • Advaita heard their words.
  • "May be they are right. Only Snehith is taking care of me and loving me every second. But I am not able to give him any happiness. I should come out of this trauma soon at least for him. Only then I can discharge my responsibilities as a wife perfectly. I love him but I should express it in my acts. I should stop worrying about the past," Advaita said to herself.
  • Snehith took shower and saw Advaita pressing his clothes. He came near to her and she turned to give his clothes. Advaita lowered her gaze seeing as Snehith shirtless. Snehith enjoyed her blushing and hugged her from the behind. He shook his head and the water drops fell on Advaita making her shiver. He intermingled his fingers with Advaita's creating unknown sensation i  her. Then slowly he moved his hands over her and kissed her cheeks. Advaita held his hands tightly. Snehith felt happy as she didn't react wildly. He turned her towards him. She gave his clothes and he got ready. Snehith left to the office as there is some meeting.
  • Advaita saw her palm where her nails pierced and started to bleed. She remembered her past when Snehith came closer to her. But to control her anger and not to hurt him, she clutched tightly and her nails pierced into her hands n started bleeding. She Wiped her tears and applied medicine to it.
  • In the evening, Snehith came back home. Snehith noticed Advaita having food with difficulty. He saw her palm which was has deep cut.
  • "What happened to your hands?"
  • "It's nothing, just a small injury," Advaita said hidding her pain from him.
  • Snehith didn't speak anything and helped her to have food. Advaita laid on the bed and Snehith started working on his laptop.
  • "It's late. Sleep now."
  • "No, Advaita. It's very important. Today before 12 am I must send the quotation. I will sleep after completing it," Snehith said.
  • Snehith typed something and deleted it. He did it several times and Advaita observed it.
  • "What happened to you?"
  • "Actually I am not sure that we will get this offer. I think it's better to drop. Because I don't like to get rejected and face the failure," Snehith said.
  • "So you like to face the failure by yourself and reject your quotation, right?" Advaita said
  • "What do you mean?"
  • "Snehith, if you participate you will have a chance to win. If you quit, there's no way to succeed. Trying is not failing. It's learning. But withdrawing trials is the real failure. I know my husband never fails. Either he will win or learn, both ways he rocks," Advaita said, holding his hands.
  • Snehith smiled and kissed her.
  • "Thank you. It's true that your husband will never fail. Actually I am waiting for this tender from a longtime and want to win it at any cost. So, I am in tension."
  • Snehith sent the mail and slept. Advaita remembered his words about the tender and opened his laptop. She sent a new quotation cancelling his quotation. In the morning, Snehith woke up and saw Advaita keeping everything ready for him. Her sweet gestures of love made Snehith realise her trials to get out of the past.
  • "What are you doing, sweetheart?"
  • "Everything is ready. Go and get fresh up. What do you prefer, Tea or coffee?" Advaita asked.
  • "I prefer green tea."
  • "What about the breakfast?"
  • "Are you going to prepare it?"
  • "Yes, of course," Advaita said.
  • Snehith held her hands and kissed on the palm.
  • "Let the injury cure first. Anyways I don't want these beautiful hands to get tired. You just bring tea and order maid to prepare the breakfast. Tell her to prepare anything that you want to eat," Snehith said.
  • Snehith got ready and Advaita gave green tea to him. She went to the kitchen to arrange table for the breakfast.
  • "Advaita," Snehith shouted her name and Advaita felt something wrong due to his angry tone. Advaita got scared and immediately went to him.
  • "Who told you to cancel my quotation and send a new one? Did I ask you?" Snehith said.
  • "Snehith, I will explain you the reason."
  • "Stop it, Advaita. I told you how important this deal is to me. But you ruined everything. If they rejects our company, what would you do?"
  • "Snehith, your quotation is very less. Even if we get the order, we can't provide them product within that amount. Either we have to bear the loss of the remaining amount or leave the tender. I quoted which is less possible amount without loss to the company."
  • "For me, getting this tender is important. If we get this, we will get offers from many other companies. So, I don't care about the loss for this one tender. I have experience in this field for years. I know what to do. How can u say that I am wrong that easily? Are you going to teach me how to run my company and decide the deals?" Snehith said, seriously.
  • Advaita understood that Snehith's ego was hurt with her deed. Ego can kill any relationship and that do no good to anyone. She tried to explain him.
  • "Your quotation is not realistic. That company can understand that. If they don't trust us, they won't accept our quotation. So I changed the quotation. I am sorry but I am confident that we will get it," Advaita said.
  • Snehith glared at her and started to office.
  • "Snehith, have your breakfast and go."
  • "I am not hungry. You don't quit having your meals for me. Have it and take tablets. If possible I will come for lunch. I am telling you seriously, don't interfere in my office works anymore. Bye."
  • Snehith left to the office and Advaita felt disturbed with his words. Snehith was upset thinking about Advaita for shouting at her. He called her but she didn't receive the call as she slept because of the tiredness caused by crying a lot. Snehith got tensed and called to the landline. The maid wake her up and told that Snehith asked her to call. Advaita called Snehith.
  • "Advaita, are you ok? Why didn't u receive my calls? Are you angry with me?"
  • "No. I was sleeping," Advaita answered in a low tone as she was upset for making Snehith angry.
  • "Did you have break fast?"
  • "I am not hungry."
  • "I am sorry for hurting you. But I don't like anyone interfering in my office works," Snehith said in a calm tone.
  • "I am not anyone. I am your wife."
  • "I agree. I am sorry once again. Please have something."
  • "What about you?"
  • "I will have food in the canteen. Now you also quit your angry hunger strike and have food. I will come for lunch if I have time. If not please don't mind and have lunch on time."
  • "Ok."
  • "Give me a smile, Advaita," Snehith said.
  • Advaita didn't speak.
  • "Advaita, If you are dull, I can't focus on my work. So please smile."
  • "I love you, Snehith."
  • "I love you more, sweetheart."
  • Snehith kissed her on the phone making her to blush.
  • "Blushing?" Snehith asked imagining his beautiful wife's smile and blush.
  • "Smiling," Advaita said.
  • "Blushing plus smiling. Give me mine and then I will start my work."
  • Advaita smiled and kissed him on phone.
  • "Now go and have food. Bye, take care."
  • "Bye."
  • Snehith waited for a long time but he didn't get any information about that tender. He was disappointed but decided to tell Advaita that they got tender as not to disappoint her. He got a call from the company whom Advaita sent quotation in the evening.
  • "Hello, Snehith here."
  • "Hello, sir. Our company approved the quotation sent by your company. Actually we are informing you lately because we saw your earlier quotation which is unrealistic and then disapproved it as no one can provide the products within that amount. But you took a clever step by requoting. Congratulations, sir," the manager of that company said.
  • "Thank you."
  • Snehith looked at Advaita's photo, smiling proudly.
  • "You are so intelligent, Advaita. You proved me wrong. But I am happy because it's you who won over me. Because of you I have succeeded today. I love you."
  • Snehith returned home and saw Advaita reading a book. He went slowly to her and sat beside her. Advaita looked at him and smiled.
  • "Good evening. Get fresh up. I will bring something for you to eat."
  • Advaita got up from the bed but Snehith pulled her onto his lap. He hugged her tightly from behind and kissed her cheeks.
  • "What are you doing?"
  • "Saying both thanks and sorry in my style."
  • Advaita felt difference in her because she didn't feel nervous or uneasy or anger with his touch. Infact she felt happy with his love and naughtiness.
  • "You have apologized me already and why do you want to thank me?"
  • "We got the tender."
  • "Wow! Are you saying this to make me happy or is it true?? Please promise me," Advaita said.
  • "Promise, Advaita. We got the tender. I love you so much. You made me successful."
  • Advaita turned towards him and hugged him. After sometime he got fresh up.
  • "Advaita, Can you work for our company? I trust that if you are me, I will win everything."
  • "But if I become aggressive again, it's not good."
  • "I know how to handle the situation if anything happens like that because now you are my wife. I can understand you better than before. So no worries. If  you like to work, you an join our company."
  • "Okay, boss," Advaita said, happily.
