Sometimes we take love and relations for granted and Tanvi did the same mistake. She presumed nothing can separate them. Not even distance.
“You have no right to disrespect someone. “ She was harsh. She stood against her love, the love without whom her life was meaningless.
Her love was her brother Niket, her best companion. They had shared a complete life like the best of friends.
Niket, being a brother yet he had forever cared like a life partner. He was someone who completed her existence.
The girl who was fuming in anger, she wasn’t aware someday her love shall leave. All the years she had been selfish as he lived a life which was always about her, everything he did was surrounded by her happiness.
As her brother decided to leave and to begin to live his own life, that relates only him, the girl knew she couldn’t stop him. But she could not even thank him enough for giving a blessed dream-like-life.
Tanvi knew she had to let him go. She could not be anymore selfish to hold on him for own happiness. The happiness she never deserved because he had sacrificed so much throughout his life, only for her smile.
She accepted that it would be no more of him who’ll be sacrificing. This time, she’ll sacrifice. And she sacrificed her love, which was him, by letting him move on. She bid him bye with a smile.
She comforted herself by the thought that it was no separation but distance. She was happy for he and everyone else was happy with his decision.
Lately, She realized her life lost its reason and her only survival was her parents. She was never so close to her parents, like him. Having him by her side she never needed them much. But parents being parent, they had always been supportive in spite of her many faults. She owes them and after him, their happiness was her duty.
After long, today he was standing there in same house. She was supposed to be happy on meeting him. But her happiness was short lived when he reasoned he had come to raise a finger on their parent’s doings. He was under influence or misunderstood, she wanted to find the root cause.
“You have to trust for they care for you.” She said explaining him again over again.
The conversation went cold and it turned to be an argument, a huge one.
“If you can’t you may leave this house. “ She barked.
She was being rude and she knew was wrong to insult him. But she was playing the role of a daughter.
In her past, she had went against anyone to support her brother, even if that ever meant to disobey her parents. She loved him the most. But in her present, situation has changed.
She was alone and left with no option but to be against her own love. She ought to prove the sister wrong and the daughter right.
She had to ensure to support them, for they had forever cared so much for the person she loved the most, that was him, and she could not them down. Also she could not deny, it was them, who was mere reason he had entered her life once and gave her such beautiful memories.
Her words being said, she didn’t mean intentionally to hurt him but she happened to do that. She was ready for the punishment. But she didn’t know his reaction would be much harsh than the punishment.
He stood up to walk, leaving her dumbstruck. Her heart ached. Many thoughts rushed up in her mind raising the turmoil within her. Her parents objected and tried to stop him.
Her eyes met with him and she saw hatred in his eyes. She too hated herself.
She heard her mother devastatingly fell down. She saw her father in tears. They were hurt by his behavior. Every deed they did was in his concern and he was acting like strangers.
“I just wanted to let you know, your actions are destroying my new life” he spoke with no emotions.
She wanted to shout too loud and she even wanted to cry more loudly. The truth was reality had struck and she no more holds on the right on him.
She turned to calm herself.
Her trust on their bonding was broken as he left the house without even a single word. He didn’t care to tell or ask anything.
She heard her father worried. His brother was doing sick and he had left empty stomach. She wanted to run behind and search for him. She couldn’t. Her mother who had done that on her behalf too could not find him. His phone being disconnected and out of her reach. She lost him, she lost her answers she needed from him.
She realized she deserved none. He did right.
She was silly to assume worse can happen but it won’t affect them. They’ll be angry but won’t apart.
She had tended to change the situation by trying to explain him. But it was all in vain. She was no more a part of his new life.
She didn’t knew, he doesn’t need her or her complaint anymore. She didn’t know it was not him but life has affected their bonding. And it was better she change as the changed life demands her to accept the hard. She knew it was going to be tough.
She consoled her parents after getting to know about his whereabouts from someone else.
Her brother had taught her to be strong. She didn’t want to fall weak but she could not stop herself from crying silently in her pillow in the night hours. She cried not because it was hard to accept but because she couldn’t change her feelings. It still says, nothing else matters for she loves him.
