Chapter Thirty Eight

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AS soon as Kesmanee was out of the building, he headed towards the garden, oblivious of the fact that Sharuna was trailing behind

 

 

He knew her to be very smart, so he tried his best not to talk, knowing very much well, she would recognize him from his voice

 

 

He was happy and amazed that she could now see, but was sad and heartbroken that his brother had taken her

 

 

All thanks to the accident that had kept him in the dungeon and caused all these to happen

 

 

Sharuna on her own part had a feeling that Priceley’s best friend might be Kesmanee

 

 

She was determined to find out, and she followed him quietly

 

 

She wasn’t aware Priceley was behind, neither of them was aware

 

 

Kesmanee walked stealthily towards the garden, his hands behind him, he didn’t know Sharuna was following, he didn’t even expect her to

 

 

Then, they were some kids playing along the terrace and suddenly, a girl tripped and fell

 

 

Kesmanee rushed to help her up

 

 

“Be careful kid”, he said

 

 

What!

 

It was his voice, she couldn’t mistake it anywhere

 

 

“What! So it’s you”, Sharuna exclaimed, shouting, startling Kesmanee

 

 

He abruptly turned and was surprised to see her

 

 

He was shocked

 

 

“Oh my God! Yes, it’s you”, she said walking further towards him

 

 

“Sharuna?”, they turned towards the direction of the voice, it was Priceley

 

 

She was shocked

 

 

“What do you think you are doing Runa?”, Priceley demanded furiously

 

 

She became lost for words

 

“I……. I was……”, she stuttered

 

 

“You were just what?”, he was angry

 

 

Kesmanee just watched the both of them in awe

 

 

“Will you get back into the house”, he commanded her

 

 

She could notice the anger in his voice, and it didn’t call for argument

 

 

She turned and ran back into the house

 

 

Priceley watched her leave and then he turned to Kesmanee

 

 

“You okay?”, he asked him

 

 

He nodded

 

“Yeah, I’m fine”

 

 

“Come into the house”, he intoned

 

 

Kesmanee shook his head

 

“I’m fine Priceley. I just wanted to be alone”, and he walked away

 

 

Priceley shrugged and went back into the house

 

 

Sharuna got into her room in a haste and locked the door

 

 

Then she flopped down on the bed, and in few minutes, was already lost in thoughts

 

 

Was that really Kesmanee?

 

Was that?

 

 

Ohh Jesus

 

She had to think

 

 

“Come on, think, think”, she said and hit her head

 

Then it dawned on her

 

KESLEY; the name of the institution

 

 

Dr Sujit had once told her that Mr Bennett had named it after his two sons

 

 

Kes from Kesmanee, and Ley from Priceley Yes, that was it

 

 

But hold on

 

Priceley said he’s his best friend, not brother

 

But Mr Bennett had named the institution after his two sons

 

How come??

 

 

Ohh!

 

She remembered now

 

 

Hadn’t Kesmanee had once told her that he was an orphan and had been adopted by his best friend parents?

 

 

That they had made him what he is today?

 

Yes, he had told her so

 

 

Ohh Jesus

 

Why had she forgotten? Why?

 

 

Now, she has to find out if he was really Kesmanee, yes, she has to before jumping into conclusion and then taking action

 

 

She closed her eyes and instantly, sleep enveloped her

Days has passed, the marriage was just few days away, and still, nothing, nothing has been done

 

 

She had absolutely done nothing

 

 

Kesmanee on his own part, was making matters worst

 

 

He had been avoiding her, not wanting to reveal his identity

 

 

But why?

 

Something is wrong somewhere

 

 

She had called her mother immediately after her research

 

 

Funny

 

Vida had screamed at it, that he was the one

 

 

“Don’t worry daughter, I will speak to Dr Sujit”, she had said

 

 

But since then, nothing had been heard again

 

 

She was standing in front of the dressing mirror lost in thoughts when the door opened, and Priceley sauntered in

 

 

He walked up to her and embraced her from behind

 

 

“Still thinking?”, he kissed her on her hair

 

 

She decided to pretend

 

“No”, she shook her head

 

“I’m not”, she laughed

 

 

“Come here”, he carried her to the bed

 

“You face looks swollen this morning”, he mocked her, laughing

 

 

“Stupid”, she said and threw him a pillow

 

 

He caught it and threw it back at her, she threw it back They were now pillow-fighting

 

 

Then the voice struck her again

 

Yes, she couldn’t mistake it, anywhere, anytime

 

It was Kesmanee’s voice

 

 

It came from outside, downstairs

 

Seems he was talking too loud

 

 

She immediately stopped the pillow fight, and walked to the window, to look at him

 

 

And true to her thoughts, it was him

 

It was Kesmanee

 

 

She smiled as she stared, instantly forgetting that Priceley was in the room with her

 

 

“What’s wrong with you Sharuna?”, he asked

 

 

“I’m sorry I don’t know”, she was still looking out the window

 

 

“And you are still staring”, he angry

 

Then she slowly turned and walked back to the bed

 

 

“Can I ask a question?”, she said

 

 

He sighed

 

“Ask”

 

 

“What’s his name? I mean your best friend”, funny she didn’t even know his name yet

 

 

Priceley became mad at her

 

He was angry

 

 

He stood up

 

“I don’t know”

 

 

“Please”

 

 

“I said I don’t know”, and he walked to the door

 

“You have succeeded in maiming today”, and he walked out.
