Till Death Do Us Part
There was a big fight on; Chandini just couldn’t forgive Raj for his mistake. There was a heated argument on between both of them; that is what she felt, actually it was Chandini screaming and pouring her heart out while Raj was just standing and listening.
The tension escalated, she thought “if he is not ready to understand me and listen to me then why should I stay?” She was quickly thinking about packing her bags and leaving home. Another part of her was wondering where she would go, she was a house wife, never had been the ambitious kind. She definitely didn’t want to go home to her old parents and trouble them.
What would she tell the kids? Should she take the kids with her? Her heart was as troubled as her brain. She kept trying to reason things out and think logically but everything was over the top and emotional. She decided to try it out once more with Raj. She cried and sat and spoke to him but he wouldn’t agree with her.
She was not just annoyed or angry anymore. She was totally pissed. She made up her mind, no more listening to this man and living a life where there is no love. She went into her room. Pulled out a stool and climbed up, opened the loft and got down the biggest box that she could find. There was non stop walking from one end of the room to the other, she kept looking to see if Raj knew what she was doing. He walked in and saw her with the box. He then left the room and sat down quietly.
Chandini was red with anger now, how could he behave like this? Anyway she opened her wardrobe and started packing things randomly. She kept muttering and sobbing as she was packing. She kept looking to see Raj and that if he had moved. Her heart was wishing that he would come and stop her. All she wanted was for him to say that he didn’t want her to leave. Slowly but steadily the box was getting full. She couldn’t stuff anymore things inside. She closed the zip and gave one last quick look at Raj. He was not there in the drawing room. She looked here and there but couldn’t spot him.
There was no turning back now. She picked up her bag and began the long walk to the door. She opened the door and found Raj standing there. He had a sharp knife in his hand. He moved close to her and put the knife in her hands. He then said “If you walk out of my home, I will surely die. Just kill me and then leave because I just cannot live without you.”
Chandini dropped her bag and the knife and hugged him. There were tears rolling down her eyes. She was more than happy; she was too overjoyed to even speak. The fight was all forgotten but what was left was a beautiful memory, which they cherish till date. Fellow Athenas today Chandini and Raj have shared their most romantic and memorable moment with you all.
