Love life Part 1 & Introduction
Radhi knew it was unfair to Raakesh to leave the story mid-way. His head must be spinning thinking about what could be the actual reason. After all the crying, she felt too weak & tired to tell the story further. So, she went in her room and brought her diary. She gave it to Raakesh and asked him to read.
Raakesh took it but asked, ‘’Are you sure you want me to read it? It is your personal diary.’’
Radhi gave a weak smile and said, ‘’Don’t worry Raakesh. I was ready to tell you all about it but I don’t have the strength to do it now’’
‘’When you finish reading, tell me’’
Radhi hugged the cushion and sat on the sofa.
Raakesh held the book carefully and started reading. There were many pages that were almost falling off.
The intial pages had the same but little more descriptive info that Radhi gave. Soon, he reached the page where Radhi stopped - Nikhil became Radhi’s room and the 1st week had gone by.
He glanced at Radhi. She fell asleep in the sofa.
He continued reading Radhi’s diary -
Dear Diary, sorry couldn’t write earlier. You know now Nikhil is always with me. We are having a great time together. He is so loving and nice to me. I told Nik that I want to share my happiness with Mom and Dad but he reminded me that he is not yet settled career-wise and that will be a big drawback. Yes, it is true. So, I let it rest.
It is already Thursday. Overall, the 2nd week with Nik was okay but I have to frank with you. There have been a few hiccups. Like, you know the everyday questioning he does in the morning. The same 4 questions every day!! –
1. At what time are you leaving today?
2. How long will you stay?
3. What will you do?
4. When will you return?
I mean it’s the same job, same place and same timings every day. If at all there is any change, I will tell before or whenever I know it. So, yesterday when he asked those questions again. I gave the above answer and asked why he wanted me to answer every day! He mumbled an ‘okay, I won’t ask you again’ answer. I said bye and left.
Evening I reached home, he was not there. He usually comes later than me. So, I did some laundry and spoke with Mom & Dad. I made dinner. Still he didn’t come. I called him 3 times and he didn’t answer my call or call back. Finally, at 9.30 pm he came. He was serious, he didn’t speak to me. He ate his dinner and it continued like this till now. I had to ask him so many times what went wrong before he even looks at me.
Finally, he said that I hurt him with my words yesterday morning. He told me that I shouldn’t have said that to him as he was asking only out of concern. He said that I do not care about his feelings!! What did I do? I said to him ‘okay, please forgive me….I didn’t know that you are this sensitive’.
Then, he counted on his finger and said that this is my second mistake in our relationship. He kind of warned me that if I go on hurting him and making mistakes like these, he would have to re-think about this relationship with me! I am so worried. What should I do?
After the forgiving scenes, he is back to his normal self again. We just had dinner.
Another one that is troubling me is my preparation for that exam I missed. I am trying to study after I reach home but with Nik around, I am just unable to concentrate. He is talking to me all the time. In addition, he will say that I am not spending enough time with him. It has been only a week but things went from being great to okay already!
Nik went with his friends to the pub and I am home alone. He hasn’t introduced me to his friends yet. I asked him to and he said now is not the time. But they know about me, about us! Anyway, I don’t want to think too much.
I tried to go to the library today and study but Nik came there too and he was making fun of some pictures he saw in a book and showed me. We laughed over it. The same thing continued for the rest of the time. So, nothing accomplished- I came home.
I wonder what Nik is doing with his studies. I asked him and he told me that it’s okay. I mean our whole life depends on it – studies first, then visa, job, marriage and the future! He seems to take it very lightly.
Today, he was saying that if possible, he’ll finish his studies otherwise; he can fake the degree and also get a fake previous job experience letter and a fake reference. I thought he was joking at first. But, he wasn’t. He told me he has friends whose friends of friends did do it! I am shocked beyond words. It’s illegal, right? What if they are caught?
I asked him why can’t he study and get a real degree, job and then an experience letter and reference. He said that he is not very interested in studying. He came here to have fun!
I don’t know what to do with him. How to put some sense into his head?
