Chapter 24 : Estranged Family
Ranveer: What are you saying Adi?
Shivaay: Adi..thats what my parents named me Aditya Sharma. But everyone think that I was killed in the struggle as they found my clothes with fire traces. All protection went to Ridhimaa as my parents were taken away by that Nagesh. I was found out by someone else who put me in an orphanage. Later I joined the school of magic under the name given by the orphanage…Shivaay. Maya ji took the best care of me. But I had my love failed as Bani chose Veer over me. I left in anger. When I left from there I found out more about the mission of everyone in the plight that I was not selected for it by Maya ji. In that search I found out about my Birth secret. That I was none other than Aditya Sharma.
Ranveer: But how did you?
Shivaay: I visited the ancestral home of Sharmas while on search. Its sealed on pure magic and only the heir of the property or the conjurer of magic could find it. This was what I heard from Gaurav ji once. I was able to enter easily and then I found certain things there and went to find the guy who put me in the orphanage. Everything confirmed my discovery that Im Aditya Sharma. Then I found out about Nagesh capturing my parents and his follower having them that time. I wanted to get help from everyone and returned to the school on the day of wedding of Bani and Veer. I got upset but…then…
Ranveer: Then what happened?
Shivaay’s phone rings
Voice: Good job Shivaay. Haden was not able to do anything as Vansh and Ridhimaa weren’t here when he came
Shivaay: Thats good sir. You could have stopped them yourself right why did you want me to…
Voice: Well I did not tell you that right..on intoxication her magical tracings fall off so Haden cannot reach her anywhere now
Shivaay: Thats awesome sir. Sir Ranveer is here and I told him everything
Voice: Ishitha Khundra’s son right..you saved him..
Shivaay: Haan yes
Voice: You need his help in protecting your sister and helping in the victory. Tell him everything except me
The call disconnects
Ranveer: Who is it Adi?
Shivaay: You will know that soon
Ranveer: Fine. Then tell what happened next
Shivaay: Then I learnt about the curse of the parselmouth and the prophecy after I left from there
Shivaay: Its a long story for some other day. After knowing the prophecy for Vansh and Ridhimaa I also learnt that Haden knows about that and has planned to kill them. That moment I realised that joining back with her is not as important as saving her. I used my love failure to create Faith in the mind of Haden that I want to hurt them all as I was not selected in the place of Veer. Now Im doing my duty of saving my sister and my friends. Ranveer I learnt about you and Aryan and your protective lineage. Now promise me not to tell anyone about my truth
Ranveer hugs him
Ranveer: I wont tell Adi . Infact I want to help you in this
Shivaay: If someone ask about me address me as Adi so that no one will doubt
Ranveer: Sure. Now what are you doing?
Shivaay: Vansh is with Ridhimaa so I need not worry I need to finish an important work. Im leaving for that. What about you?
Ranveer: You know about her na..
Shivaay: Haan I know what about her now?
Ranveer: Im going to her grave. Bye
Ranveer and Shivaay leave from there. The scene freezes
A drenched Vansh and Ridhimaa get inside with Vansh carrying her. He locks the door and lets her down
Ridhimaa: Im sweating switch the ac on
Vansh: Ridhimaa you are not sweating dear..you are wet get inside and get changed
Vansh pushes her into the restroom and closes the door from outside after giving her clothes to change. He slowly walks towards her desk where he finds a diary. He slowly takes it in his hand
But before he could open it the restroom door opens and Ridhimaa walks out
Vansh turns to see her standing with her clothes changed and her hair let put loose and wet
Vansh: Ridhimaa why didn’t you dry your hair?
She blinks and he realises that she is drunk as he sees her dress buttoned unevenly. He places the diary on the desk and walks to her. He carefully makes her dress proper and dries her hair. She suddenly stops him and hugs him
Vansh: Ridhimaa…let me dry them for you..please cooperate
She snatches the towel and throws it away
Ridhimaa: Nahi..I dont like it
She pushes him away and walks out to the living room. Vansh follows her
Vansh: Acha okay..now come and sleep. Its late
Ridhimaa: If I sleep you will leave me. I wont sleep
Vansh: Why will I leave you? I wont leave. Please come and sleep
She enters the kitchen and takes a knife in her hand and points at him
Vansh: Ridhimaa..what are you doing?
Ridhimaa: If you try to leave Ill use this knife on you
Vansh is dumbstruck by her act
Vansh: I promised not to leave na sweetheart then why do you need this?
Ridhimaa: You wont keep your promises thats why
He struggles and finally gets the knife from her
Ridhimaa: Give it to me
Vansh: No.. you are going to bed right now
She starts to cry
Ridhimaa: You dont love me you are scolding me..so bad Vansh…leave from here
Vansh has no other way to stop her cries so he turns to leave. She hugs him from behind
Ridhimaa: See you don’t love me thats why you are leaving..I said na you are breaking your promises
Vansh is confused whether to laugh at her cuteness or cry at her behaviour .
Ridhimaa: You wont bother even if I die. You will..
Unable to take this anymore Vansh turns around and closes her mouth with his hands
Vansh: What nonsense are you talking. Enough is enough
He drags her to the bedroom and makes her lie down
Ridhimaa: You too come
Vansh: My clothes are wet. They will spoil the bed. You sleep sweetheart
He covers her with the blanket and walks to the desk. He picks the diary and sits in a chair near her as he slowly flips the pages
Ridhimaa in diary: Hey Diary Im feeling so lonely and as a result I ate all the chocolates I stocked for the month. My teddy bear has also become very old so that I had to throw it out. I have to buy a new one soon.
Few pages later
Hey Diary Today I confessed my love to Vansh. I don’t know how and why but I really love him. He is the only one whom I can call mine. I just wish fate doesn’t snatch him from me like it snatched Dadi , Maa and Papa. My heart beats faster whenever I think of him. When he is with me I feel safe and secured.
Suddenly Vansh gets to reality as he hears some sound. He places the diary on the desk and walks to Ridhimaa who is murmuring in her sleep. He bends closer to hear her
Ridhimaa: Vansh…you were so cute when you got jealous. I loved you like that. Dont leave me Vansh..I wont bear that …if you leave me Ill…ill die..thats for sure
Vansh is surprised to hear that Ridhimaa is talking of him even in her sleep. He realises that she loves him much deeper that what she has expressed to him
He sees tears dripping from her eyes and wipes it. He slowly kisses her and
Vansh: I promise to never leave you sweetheart. Its a promise on me. I love you
Ridhimaa: I love you too Vansh
He smiles at her cute reply and sits the admiring her. The scene freezes
Shivaay reaches the tunnel with food parcels. He walks in to find the couple sitting silently
Shivaay: Maa …Papa…I have brought food for you
He takes the food and gives it to them
Lady: Harish……Im scared
The man: Dont worry Avantika they won’t kill us…they haven’t done till now
Avantika: Then why are we here?
Shivaay’s eyes drip with tears as he sees his parents’ eyes with fear for him. He bends down to them
Shivaay: Mom …Dad…..dont be afraid of me…Im your son…
Shivaa in mind: Oh god..help me to restore their memories…please…
Shivaay breaks down crying. The scene freezes
