Saddened and disappointed Rupali straightaway went home. She couldn’t hold her tears. She and her mother had been through enough in their lives and now this shocker. She called her mom saying she won’t be joining her at Jaimin’s house, her mother found it sort of absurd but she thought Rupali and Jaimin were together so Rupali vanished and was ok with it.
Rupali calmed herself down and then began her thought process as to what should be the next step. But more than anything, even after what she saw, she was still worried about Jaimin and wanted to help him in the best possible way. She couldn’t understand why, in these advanced times, Jaimin was hiding what he was hiding. She felt that inner pain for him and after deep thinking, finally, she decided to make a plan and tackle the situation in a way that nobody’s feelings get hurt, but before that, she needs to know everything from Jaimin about the entire matter. As such the day had been already a mess, so she thought of using the time left in the day. She picked her phone and called Jaimin. He was still in the cafe and was surprised to see Rupali calling him. He thought people at home might be asking about him so she might have called him. Twice or thrice he didn’t pick the call but Rupali adamantly kept calling back to back and at last he received a call. Rupali bluntly told him that she knows he was in the cafe “WITH SOMEONE” and it would be better if both of them met her. Jaimin couldn’t believe this but the one with him agreed and asked Rupali to join them in the cafe. Rupali agreed and left for the cafe.
Rupali reached the cafe and met Jaimin and the other someone. She asked Jaimin to introduce that someone to her. Jaimin was spellbound by Rupali’s behaviour. She was a girl and still was so clear with her thoughts and actions, totally opposite to Jaimin. Jaimin introduced “HETAL” to Rupali. The hellos were exchanged and Rupali ordered a fresh round of coffee for everybody. She seemed so bold and independent and carefree. Rupali asked Hetal to start the storytelling. Hetal held Jaimin’s hand and started speaking.
Hetal is a surgeon by profession. Her family background is similar to that of Rupali’s. Hetal’s mother was a single parent after her father died while serving the Indian Army. Her mother didn’t let Hetal join Army, so she studied medicine and became a surgeon. Even in the cafe she was dressed in her hospital attire as Jaimin had called her in a rush rush moment. Listening to this, Rupali immediately hugged her and said she understands every feeling of her. Rupali reluctantly looked at Jaimin who was constantly staring Hetal and was feeling proud of her.
Jaimin had a mishap during his engineering field work and had to be rushed to the nearby hospital a couple of years back. He had to undergo shoulder surgery. The surgeon was Hetal. Since that day on, both of them never looked back and have grown into their relationship leaps and bound. They were immensely in love and it was literal from the way they looked at each other.
If everything was so perfect then why the wait, why were they in a sort of hiding, why was there that reluctance to announce their bonding? With so many questions, Rupali just kept listening to Hetal when Jaimin took over and resumed the next part of the story.
