It took long time, actually few years, for Rahul to recover from the consequences for falling in love with Tina, though actual consequences he faced after the break up but I have always believed those happened coz he fallen in love with Tina…that’s the root.
Actually the phase he faced can be called PTSD(Post Traumatic Stress disorder) for the incidents took place, that’s a different story and except me he has not shared those with anyone.
After that phase, one day evening when we were spending time in Arpan’s house, to be specific in Arpan’s rehearsal room and I was sharing a real life love story that ended through a funny incident then suddenly Arpan asked Rahul
…Did you even feel to take revenge on Tina?
I was irritated with such question, why unnecessarily raising this issue??? Long years have passed but to my utter surprise Rahul replied with a smile
…No never, it’s true that I was angry on her, I used to be irritated whenever memories used to haunt but never ever any thought has knocked into mind.
We all remained silent for a while, we both were finding it tough what to reply, I don’t know what Arpan was thinking but I wanted to avoid this discussion, I was trying my level best to sort out something to divert the issue but suddenly Rahul started again
…But yes, one thought knocked into my mind
Arpan asked being highly curious
…you know those days visiting the restaurant with the beloved was not in the trend with so much intensity, especially in our town, so naturally we never visited any restaurant together but one day it happened that I invited Tina in our house for the lunch, that day we prepared some sumptuous foods for her…
Saying this he stopped for a while, Arpan asked
…After few years of break up I felt to meet her and ask for Rs 70
…yes, Rupees 70, I think this will be enough for the foods we prepared for her, I excluded the boiled rice and daal.
I was not surprised with the answer neither I laughed out, Arpan was laughing rolling over the floor and repeatedly saying “Rs 70”, Rahul was also smiling and I was lost in my thoughts…may be this what a loving heart contains, even Rahul also knows it full well that if he asks for the money from Tina then she will also laugh a lot, the outcomes of a loving heart always has the intention to bring smile in the face of his/her beloved.
That was the day for the first time Rahul made any joke on his love story and I felt much relaxed with the thought that he is much well now.
