THE WEDDING DRAMA
Radhika looked at herself, she felt uneasy watching that elegant peach lehanga draped around her. What she seriously doing what she was about to do?
âNoâ¦noâ¦.this will only hurt three lives.â Her heart screamed.
ânot if, you keep mum about it.â Her heart countered.
She sighed, drank a entire glass of water in a single gulp. After a little touch up on her make up, she came out of her room. Her brother, Neil was surprised to find her dress up little that.
âis the theme, wedding today?â he teased her, hinting at her heavy partyholic nature.
She sighed. She wasnât in mood for this. Her heart felt heavy but yet she could say it out loud. Not because her brother, her neil wont bother about it. But because, what the point wasâ¦.she was in a one sided relation and she realized it.
Neil waved his hands in front of her eyes, trying to wake her up from the dream she was in with her eyes open.
She sighed, âbhai, its arjunâs wedding today.â
Neil smiled, âso why sighingâ¦its your best friendâs wedding be happyâ¦.by the who is the lucky girl?â
Radhika replied without any emotions, âsamaira, he met her at the med school.â
Neil smiled, turning his attention to the television, âokayâ¦enjoyâ¦.and yeah, donât try coming all by your self. I know, youâll be tipsy. Get somebody to drop, or call me.â
She scowled, she drankâ¦so what? He was speaking as he didnât. if she gets tipsy a couple of drinks earlier that him then how is that her fault.
âshut up.â She snapped, moving out of the house.
Neil turned around to look at her disappearing figure. ânow What happened to this girl?â he wondered.
Radhika sat In her car. She desperately wanted to chicken awayâ¦..but it was her best friendâs wedding. âWhat will he sayâ¦â¦what? I can always make excuses, will tell him, that I wasnât well.â She reasoned.
She instantly cursed herself for such thoughts. This situation was something, she should have thought about before falling head over heels with him.
She drove on as her mind replayed all their memories. Everything and anything that happened over the last 10 yearsâ¦..yes, she knew arjun since last 10 years.
But realized that she fell in love with him only two years ago. She smiled a sad one, remembering how she initially ignored the feeling thinking it to be some sort of a stage or temporary attraction. But then she realized it was love! True love!
But she was lateâ¦the day, when she decided to disclose her feelingâ¦but before she was able toâ¦.she got the shock of her life. Arjun rushed to her all gushing, telling her that he was getting married to the love of her life.
Radhikaâs world crumbled in a single second. She found her love and lost him, all in a matter of two hours. How difficult it had become since, to control her feelings in front of him. She even tried to reduce the time she spend with him. But he never let goâ¦..she felt tears forming in her eyes as she remembered his favourite dialogue, âdidnât grab your handâ¦to leave youâ¦jaana!â
She could blame himâ¦..he wasnât even aware of her love. It was a strictly one sided thing. And watching arjun getting his happiness in sam. She was even more determined to let things remained the way they were.
She, at any point never realized that it was going to be as difficult as it wasâ¦.until the day, he come to her house, to give an invitation to his wedding. Looking at his name, entangled with samairaâs in midst of the hearts, she lost it. She lost all the control she had. The dam she had build to store her emotions broke. She cried and cried that nightâ¦.all alone sobbing into her pillow. She cursed her fate, she didnât even have her best friend to help her sail through her miseries because of he was the reason for her tearsâ¦.her longings.
Radhika stopped the car abruptly. She looked at her face In the rearview mirror. âyou cant break down today, just one more dayâ¦.and youâll forever be free of this unnecessary burden.â She tried to convinced herself. But guess, destiny had different plans.
She sighed and drove reaching the venue. She got down, handing her car keys to the valet. As soon as, she turned around. She was engulfed in a bear hug. She didnât need to look at the personâs face. His scent itself, tingled her senses. She knew this was place she wanted so desperately to be inâ¦..yet she knew she could never have it.
She pushed out of the hug. Arjun had a injured look on his face. She covered up, she dragged him insideâ¦holding his sleeve, âwhat were you doing outsideâ¦.behave man, its your wedding.â
âwaiting for you.â he said.
Suddenly, Arjunâs mom came rushing towards them. She gave a arm hug to radhika and pecked her forehead. For her, radhika was like the daughter she never had.
âradhuâ¦you only tell this man that its his wedding. You know what he didâ¦..he looked around and then stopped all the mantras going on. Marching outside, he said, he wouldnât get married until you came. Stupid boyâ¦.only you can handle his behaveâ¦â saying so she slapped his cheek lightly.
Radhika grabbed his sleeve again, and marched him to the central stage, ânow that I am here, lets get you married.â She said. Her heart breaking into millions of pieces as she said all those words. Her heart cursing her.
She stood like a mute vistor, at the corner. She didnât say a word, or looked at anyone in particular. She didnât even respond arjunâs gaze. All her energy was getting used up in holding back her tears.
Then the blushing bride came and radhika noticed arjunâs loving glance at herâ¦.his hand extended to help her up. She took take it no longer. She quietly slipped out. She ran to behind the building and let all those tears flow out.
After a while, she felt strong arms banding her waist and a gentle nuzzling on her shoulder. She instantly tried to turn around but the grip was unshakably strong. She struggled.
And all her world stopped at the word, she froze. Arjun.
âstop struggling.â His words brought her back to earth.
She gentle twisted around in his arms to face him. She tried to push him away, before she looses herself at there proximity.
âwhat are you doingâ¦..and why the hell do you keep running around. What is so hard to understand that it is your wedding and only thing expected out of youâre here is you stand straight?â she said in one go.
âso strong naa radziieeâ¦..â he said as he smelled her hair, his cheek rubbing on to hers, making her blush crimson.
âso even today, you wont open your mouthâ¦you realize naa that, once I go through with this wedding, it wont even matter if you confess or you donât. youâll lose me forever.â
Radhika eyes widened, âyou knew all along?â
Arjun smiled at her, âI aint your namesake best friend. I realized even before you did.â
Radhika started hitting his chest, âthen why did you get married?â
âcorrection, was aboutâ¦.but I am not yet.â He said huskily as he tried to catch hold of her wrists.
âthen why all this?â she asked.
âoh my god woman, you ask a lot of questionsâ¦okayâ¦okay, this was all to make you confess.â
She stomped on his foot hard, âidiotâ¦you could have simply came and told me that you loved me, and problem solved.â
âtskâ¦tskâ¦.correction, I never said that I loved youâ¦.all I said was that I knew you loved me.â He said, all seriously on the exteriors but he was laughing looking at her expressions on the inside.
Arjun felt a couple of tears fall on his sherwani. Radhika pulled away from his grip. She turned around and started walking. Arjun instantly went alert, he wanted to tease her but he ended up hurting her.
She was instantly pulled back and her head hit his strong chest. Her nails dig into his arm, but he didnât flinched.
âRadhikaâ¦.radhikaâ¦.i am sorryâ¦.i was just teasing youâ¦I love you, more than my lifeâ¦.infact I loved you even before you realized your love for me.â
âand what about samaira?â she asked with her eyes closed, leaning on him, caged in his arms.
Arjun took a second to respond, âummm, yeahâ¦.she is hot, no?â
He instantly got a hot stinging slap on his face.
Radhika pointed her finger at him, âdonât you dare, think about any other girl Mr. Mehra. I wont leave youâ¦.either you are mine or nobody elseâs..â
âsays the girl who was forcing me to sit in my marriage with sam.â He mocked, he grabbed her waist and roughly pulled her towards him. âand yeah babyâ¦donât you hit me againâ¦.because you know, if I do, my style is kind of different. Iâll show youâ¦.â saying so, he winked at her and pulled her even more close, like if that was possible. His thumb rubbed her lower lip and he almost leaned in.
Radhika pushed him hard, blushing crimson, âyou are shamelessâ¦..but still you didnât answer my question.â
âsamaira is your would be sister in law.â
âwhat?â she jaw hit the floor.
âyeah, she is neilâs girlfriend and he proposed a week ago.â
âand knew about this wedding drama?â she gasped.
âwell, he planned it actually.â He winking at her, before capturing her lips in a sudden surprising action.
