"I am sorry, Ishu. I can't announce our marriage to the world. As you already know how much I have struggled to reach this position. Please ishu, it's just a matter of time." I spoke gulping down my fear of losing her. As far as I know about her, can she bear anything but this? She looked up to me with a warm smile that unpleasantly twisted my heart. Whenever she smiles like this, I know what is coming my way. I wanted to convince her more before anything bad happens to us. But it's damaged already when I opened up about my decision to hide our relationship.
"I know, Arjun. You deserve this position. You can't sacrifice this dream of yours for anything. I won't like it even if it's for me." She spoke again, smiling that way. I looked away from her face, not able to guess anything that's cooking there in her head. She is the smartest and most stubborn girl I have ever known.
"Just for the release of my first film. Maybe after that, we shall grandly announce our marriage" I know my words didn't give any hope to her. My hard work of 10 years, at last, paid off when I got my first film offer. But the director demanded only one thing and that's I should be single. He is the first person to believe in me to give me this opportunity even though I have no experience or any special background.
"If you are confident in your career, I wish you to succeed more in this path. I won't be a hurdle in your way. I wish to die than to put a brake on your dreams" her words stirred something in my heart and I knew that she has something big in her head and it will ruin everything in our life.
"Let's just part our ways. Trust me I am not angry with you and I want you to succeed more" that's it, my eyes popped out and tears started flowing in my eyes. I can't let her go away from my life like this. But can I sacrifice my first opportunity? He'll no, I have struggled hard and there is no word to explain about my hard life till now.
"That's not the decision we make in this tough life!" I tried to put some brains into her but failed miserably when she smiled like that again. She is just the hardest woman I have ever met in my life. She will never change her decision if she made it with that attitude.
"Please, don't leave me" I begged before her but she took her baggage and looked at me with no regret in her decision. Her Mehandi looked divine even in this night light. After all, it's just two months since we married. But is that all about our relationship? He'll no, it's a long 7 years love. It's not just love. We have something more than love and respect.
"We can work this out together" I begged her again not wanting to let her go at any point. I can't live without her.
"No Arjun. I can't become any reason for interrupting your success. What if anyone spots you with me? It will become the end of your dreams. And don't feel guilty. I will always be there for you" she said, cupping my cheeks. She is damn right about everything. If I become popular, I can never hide my personal life. But that can't justify the decision she made.
She turned and climbed up the train without looking at me. I was crushed there on the floor hiding my face in my palm. Sacrificing her means, sacrificing my happiness. But sacrificing my career means dying right there. The pain in my heart doubled when the train left the place. A loud sob escaped my lips realising the life ahead without my Ishu with me.
I know k has been selfish here. I can't just stay by his side to see him getting away inch by inch. It's good for us both that we part our ways rather than kill our love daily. When he decided to hide me from society, I just couldn't breathe. But I don't want to be his weakness. I have always stayed by his side as a strength. I wish to be the one till the end.
He will never let me go if given a chance. But I can sense our love to get stained the moment he tries to hide it. For me, it's more important than anything in my life.
Anyone who would be listening to our story would call us a mad person. They can never understand what his dream means to him nor what love means to me. Both can exist separately but not together.
I don't know where I am going. But the little happiness I am carrying with me is growing inside me. I badly wanted to shout to Arjun that he was going to become a father. But the moment he hears it would be the end of his dreams. He would never let me go from his life. But I should leave his life for his good. I will surely bring up my child as the best person in this world.
