VIDA rushed through the orders that has just been booked

 

 

She wasn’t supposed to be at the boutique that morning, she was supposed to go see Sharuna as promised

 

She had to forfeit going to see her for the moment, so she could carry out the orders before the buyers arrive

 

 

It was Saturday morning, and she was hired to provide gowns for the bridal train for the wedding that Saturday morning

 

 

It was an urgent order, hence the rush

 

 

Soon, she was done

 

She packed the clothes neatly into a bag and kept it on the counter

 

 

“Hey Henrietta”, she called

 

 

“Yes Vida”

 

 

“I’ve arranged the order, so once they come, give it to them. They’ve paid for it”

 

 

 

“Okay”

 

 

“I will be going to see my daughter now. Take care of the shop”

 

 

“As always, bye”

 

 

“Yeah”, and she left the shop, walked down to the road and boarded a cab,

 

straight to Mr Bennett’s

Vida got to the mansion and walked straight to the building

 

 

That wasn’t her first time there, so she was kinda familiar with the house and the people living there

 

 

She rang the doorbell and a maid answered it

 

 

She entered and walked through the sitting room, taking the stairs to Sharuna’s room

 

 

It looked like no one was at home, the house was quiet

 

 

She walked to her room and knocked on the door

 

 

“Come in”, her voice motioned

 

 

The door opened and Vida entered

 

 

Sharuna was sitting on the bed, going through a magazine

 

 

“Hey Mom”, she screamed in joy and stood up to embrace her mother

 

“Dora? My dora”, she smiled and they both embraced

 

 

“Welcome mummy. What do you care for?”, she asked

 

 

Vida laughed

 

“Am I a stranger?”, she asked

 

 

“But you are a visitor?”

 

 

“Neither am I”, she sat on the bed

 

 

“If you say so then”, she shrugged and sat down beside her “So mom, what’s the way forward? Any progress?”, she asked

 

 

Vida shook her head

 

“I’ve tried my best daughter, to make them see reasons with me. But Dr Sujit had said we shouldn’t let Priceley know of it”

 

 

Sharuna frowned

 

“Why?”

 

 

“He said when it all happened, it was in the past, that Priceley wasn’t there. Moreover, that might cause trouble between them and they’re best friends”

 

 

“And then make a mistake that would maim us for the rest of our lives?”

 

 

Vida shook her head

 

“I tried telling them”

 

 

“That’s rubbish. Absolutely rubbish, if they don’t do something then I will. I will take action”, she suddenly became angry and stood up, heading towards the door

 

 

“Take it easy dora. Where are you off to?”, she asked

 

 

“Don’t bother mom. But just know that if they refuse to do something, then I will”, and she stormed out of the room

 

 

She was still angry. What do they mean by that?

 

Are they the ones to tell her what to do?

 

 

Damn it. She must do something if they don’t

 

 

She angrily walked down the stairs and went outside

 

 

Then she started walking towards the garden, she stopped when she saw what she was looking for

 

 

It was Kesmanee

 

He was standing by the terrace

 

 

She walked up to him and fell on him instantly, crying

 

 

He was surprised and he held onto her

 

 

“It’s you I want……. I want you”, she cried

 

 

Kesmanee was stabbed in the heart, he sobbed quietly

 

 

“I’m sorry Sharuna, but it seemed we weren’t meant for each other. I’m sorry”

 

 

She cried the more, as she buried her head on his chest

 

“I love you Kesmanee, please let’s fight this we can”

 

 

He sighed

 

“Look Runa, when it all happened Priceley wasn’t there. It’s our past and we shouldn’t bring him into it okay? I love you too but…….it just seems not to be working”

 

 

She cried the more

 

“Let’s fight harder, we can”

 

 

He was speechless and lost for words

 

 

Suddenly Priceley came along and saw them both in an embrace

 

 

He became angry and he fumed

 

 

He walked towards them and drag Sharuna from his hold

 

 

“I can’t take this anymore…… I can’t. What’s going on?”, he demanded

 

furiously

 

 

“Kesmanee? This is my fiancee, and we gonna be wedded by tomorrow. So what’s all this?”, he shouted

 

 

“Calm down Priceley, I’m not eating her up. She’s still yours”, he said

 

 

Sharuna looked at him and tears ran down her face

 

 

Priceley looked at him in fury, and then walked away, taking Sharuna along with him

 

 

 

She turned back intermittently to look at him, she was heartbroken

The D-Day for the marriage finally arrived

 

 

It was carried out in a hall at the Bennett’s mansion

 

 

Soon people began arriving, friends, family, business associates and the rest of them

 

 

The hall was really filled with people

 

 

Soon, the marriage kicked off, in a typical Indian culture

 

 

All the marriage rites were carried out successfully

 

 

Then it was time for the bride to give a drink to the groom

 

 

She was scared all along

 

 

She received the glass cup of the drink with shaky hands and walked towards Priceley

 

One eye on Kesmanee, the other on Priceley

 

 

She was visibly shaken

 

 

She got to Priceley and knelt down in front of him

 

 

Ohh God help her

 

She couldn’t do this, she just couldn’t

 

 

Suddenly, the glass cup slipped from her hands and shattered on the tiled floor

 

The drink spilled

 

 

She stood up in a haste and ran to Kesmanee, held him in an embrace and cried

 

 

Anger filled Priceley and he suddenly became violent

 

 

He slipped out a revolver from ‘God knows where’ and pointed it towards them

 

 

He sprung into action without thinking

 

 

Before anyone could stop him, he released a bullet

 

 

The bullet missed Sharuna and landed on Kesmanee’s right arm

 

 

“Priceley yyyyyyyyyy”, he shouted and went down

 

 

And soon, pandemonium filled the hall.
