“Bindiya ?” Rajni ran toward her. “How did you get in? Geet had locked the door from outside?” She was amazed. However, Bindiya said the key was lying close the window outside and she found it. Rajni then started crying and complaining about Geet. How she imprisoned her at home.
“I am aware of all Rajni. But you do not get upset. I am here with you” Bindiya consoled. But Rajni’s condition had deteriorated,
“No Bindiya, I do not want to be with her, not at all. You see, I will run again and will never come back” She said, crying. Her tears were not stopped.
“Don’t say that”, Bindiya round her hand on her head, She said after thinking a while. “Well dear, if you wish, you can stay with me, as long as you wish but stop crying baby, No way I can see your tears” She comforted Rajni and wiped her eyes. Rajni was impressed hearing her offer.
“Really I can stay with you” She asked in a voice full of hope.
“Sure baby, why not. After all you’re my little sister”, Bindiya added. She deliberately promoted her solacement. “You’ve every right on me and my home dear” “But…” She stopped in the middle. Rajni looked her confused. “But I’m afraid about Geet. Will she let you come with me?”
“I don’t care about her” Rajani said angrily. “I’m not a child, who always listen to her. If she does always of her mind, so I will too. She did not let me go to school today, locked at home. So now I will do what I feel fine. I will come with you” She said frankly. Bindiya nodded. “Come on,” She bid and took Rajni to her home. Rajni packed her few belongings before leaving. Even once, she did not think what she is doing. Just left with Bindiya.
Geet left earlier today from the office, but rather today she not even stepped into office. She was sorry that she was tough to Rajni. She wanted to explain to her lovingly. So she came back home. But “Rajni? Why is she going to Bindiya’s house?” Geet saw Rajni with Bindiya. She couldn’t understand what Rajni was doing there? Why she was with that lady and how did she come out of the house?” Unless she finds some sense, the door had been bolted. Geet ran. “Rajni!” She rapped on door loudly. But there was no sound from inside. But Geet kept beating on the door. Then she looked inside the window, Rajni was sitting there but she was silent without giving any answer back.
“Come out Rajni,” Geet ordered. But Rajni did not listen. “Rajni Please, come out. Come home child,” Geet had requested, still Rajni had no effect. People were gathered outside. All were watching the spectacle. Geet was embarrassed. “Do not make a scene Rajni, come out. Bindiya .. Open the door or else…” She pounded hard on door.
“Or else what Geet !!” Bindiya replied tightly. She opened the door.
“Or else I’ll call the police”
“Do not threaten me, Geet. I did not force her to come with me” Bindiya was now stood in front of the Geet. “Your sister came of her own volition. And if she wants to go, then take her. She is anyway, of no use to me” Bindiya said mischievously.
Though Geet did not like her way of talk, but she did not answer also. She just went inside and requested Rajni to come home. But when found Rajni still adamant she just held her hand and started dragging her out. Rajni hollered but Geet did not listen.
“I do not have to go Geet, leave my hand. People are watching us!” Rajni wriggled in hold.
“This spectacle you have created yourself. Come home now”
Rajni was trying hard to get away. She pushed Geet so hard to be free and finding first opportunity, she run and crashed into a man.
“Maan Sir, please save me!” She hid behind him.
