Raghu is a handsome, mature, caring, and a very genuine guy who loves his parents to the moon and back and have always respected their choices. Radhika is a beautiful girl with that innocence and purity in her soul which amplifies her beauty in the true sense.
Raghu’s parents had chosen a girl for him and he was going to meet her for the very first time. They drove to Radhika’s house and her parents greeted them. They all settled down and were chatting, while Raghu’s eyes were waiting for her and his mind was preoccupied with her thoughts as his parents had already talked about her before so much that he couldn’t wait to meet a beautiful soul and felt as if was being pulled by an invisible thread.
And finally, his wait was over when her mom called her to come down. Her first glance fastened his heart beat and he couldn’t stop staring that magical gleam her eyes were beaming. Raghu’s mother asked her to sit next to her and they continued their chat session. He was trying to have another glance at her when Radhika’s mother caught him, his face turned beet red and he took his eyes off in shyness.
Radhika’s parents told her to show their house to Raghu so that they could get the chance to have some chit-chat alone. She was showing him the house when he interrupted her and said: “You are beautiful”. She didn’t know what to say so she just continued walking and they reached her room. It was beautiful, covered with those marvelous paintings, handcrafts all around and some memories captured in photographs.
He again tried to initiate the conversation as he had that urge to know her and said: “Tell me something about yourself, your hobbies, schooling, favorite places, and etcetera”. Radhika was a bundle of nerves, he too had butterflies in his stomach but he controlled his emotions and tried to comfort her. He began telling about his hobbies and other stuff, she also opened herself up as their talks continued. Then, suddenly she became quite as if something had haunted her from inside which blocked her spine. He asked her what happened, say something and she stated: “I am not a virgin”. She thought he would be horrified by her statement but was astonished by his reply “Was this the reason behind these tears in your eyes?” while wiping the tears. She told her about her ex- boyfriend and how much she loved him, but he cheated on her for the sake of money. He told her not to cry anymore and they went down to their parents.
Raghu’s mother asked him did he liked her and was ready for the marriage or not. Beads of cold sweat were dripping down through Radhika’s forehead as she had a fear of hearing a “No” from his mouth. Raghu nodded to his mom, she was relaxed and then it was a moment of celebration for all of them. Their marriage was fixed and the date was set.
Finally, they were married, and it was their first night. Radhika was happy but her soul was not ready to make love with someone else. She was sitting in his room where all these thoughts were revolving in her mind when she heard Raghu’s cousins and friends were teasing him about the night outside the room. He opened the door, entered the room and shut the door behind. She heard his footsteps coming closer, she felt numb for that moment, could hear her heart throbbing loudly and he came closer and closer fastening her heart beat. He took his pillow and blanket, told her he would sleep on the sofa while she could rest on the bed. That night nothing happened between them but she cried for the whole night regretting her past and telling her feelings to her best friend, her personal diary.
The next morning, he woke up and was ready for his work when he noticed her swollen red eyes. He tried not to disturb her sleep, was gazing at her and then left for his office. She woke up and didn’t find him in the room. She got ready, went to the kitchen and packed lunch for him. Things didn’t change for one month but he was trying his level best to comfort her. And she was making an attempt to fulfill that void her ex- boyfriend had made in her heart.
One night he found his wife jotting something in her diary, asked her to have a look at it but she refused him. He tried to soothe her and she told her about the passion towards writing which was lost just because of her past. He was amazed as he also had the urge to write sometimes but he failed because of his work. He asked her to continue writing for him and she agreed. They came closer owing to their same passion but he never forced her to make love, even they haven’t kissed.
Today, after two months her first article is published in the newspaper. He is so thrilled by the news and seeing him extremely happy, a tear of happiness cum sorrow roll down her cheek. Seeing his love for her, she hugs him so tightly like she never wants him to leave her. They share a passionate kiss, they walk down to their room and he let her lie on the bed. But suddenly he resists and asks her out, she says yes with her gesture by grabbing him more closely, kissing him more passionately. And finally, two souls unite.
