The Runaway Groom 4

After a while, Jaimin came downstairs and joined the group. The chitchat continued. Rupali was constantly trying to steal a site of Jaimin, but Jaimin never noticed her and was busy with the ongoing group conversation. Lunch happened and it was time to bid farewell. Rupali had some gut feeling and she decided to investigate this in her own unique way. Numbers were exchanged and Rupali and Jaimin promised to be in touch.

Days passed and Rupali never got a chance to have a word with Jaimin, let alone meeting was a far off thing. Every time she called him, he used to return her call saying he was either busy or out somewhere. After many such tries, there came a day when Rupali felt it was enough. She was so frustrated by Jaimin’s behaviour that she almost decided to tell her mom to cancel the marriage proposal. It was now time for her to tighten up her laces and take up the Jaimin case.

In Indian rituals, the day of writing invitation cards is considered very auspicious. The first invite is placed in temple meaning the Gods and Goddesses are invited to mark their presence and bless the newly wedded couple. The religion head was approached and he gave the auspicious date for the same; both families decided to sit together and prepare the invites. It was mutually decided that this event will be organised at Jaimin’s place.

Rupali and her mother arrived early morning. A small puja was performed and then began the penning of invites. A few close relatives of both families had gathered for this occasion. After some time, Jaimin declared that he’ll have to leave due to some work emergency. Rupali smelled this somewhat fishy. As soon as Jaimin left, Rupali immediately stood up, finding out people in the room staring at her. To end the suspicion, she hurriedly said that her friend had an emergency and she’ll have to run to her. There was a teasing smile and the whole room murmured and whispered that both of them want some alone time so all this emergency. In no time, Rupali started following Jaimin’s car on her scooter.

Jaimin parked his car near a garden and went into a nearby cafe. Rupali also did the same. As soon as she stepped inside the cafe, she couldn’t believe what she saw and heard. This was a big-time shock for her, she left the place with a heavy heart and teary eyes. Her fingers went numb and her senses out of order. She almost collapsed before she could find a bench to sit on and gather herself.

What she might have seen and heard? What was so shocking that left her numb? The Runaway Groom 5 follows soon…

Rise and shine.

“Rise and Shine” is my life long-standing "Mantra" that I follow. I am a travel enthusiast. Travelling gives me energy and rejuvinates me, while writing relieves my stress and creates positive vibes within. I believe in making every little contribution towards making this world a better place for the coming generations to live in and breathe free. We should all understand and accept the fact that we are blessed with this existence as humans and utilize this bliss to help the unprivileged by making maximum humanitarian efforts. Gratitude is a bliss. Never miss a chance to express your gratitude especially towards the amazing God gift called "Nature". Have courage and be kind to others. Respect and discipline should be your master armours to fight the evil of overconfidence and arrogance. Chase your dreams, stand for and by yourself, spread love and kindness, act smart, don't let others ruin you in anyway and above all make all necessary efforts to rise and shine bright. Self-respect and self-confidence along with kindness and generosity should be the values by which people should reognize and remember you. Rise and Shine.
