Paste front. Meera went to the airport and called up her dad.
“Dad, he gifted me a diamond ring and said he loves me. I want to marry him dad. I truly love him.” She was so full of love. The joy echoed all over her voice.
“Ok princess. Come back home soon. We are waiting for you.”
“Where is Santhosh?” Meera asked.
“He has gone out. He said he wants to talk to you about something important when you are back home.” Prabhu said.
“Ok dad. I’m so happy. Tell the news to mom. Ask San to pick me up from the airport. Bye dad” she cut the line.
Few hours passed. Prabhu switched on the television and relaxed.
“Nadhiya.... Nadhiya...come here.” He shouted along with a tint of cry.
“NADHIYA. COME HERE” he yelled as he increased the TV volume.
“Why are you shouting like this ji?” Nadhiya came out of the kitchen.
“See this Nadhiya” he broke into tears. Loud cry.
“What is happening ji? Why this?” she cried along.
“ Call Santhosh. Call Santhosh immediately.” He shouted and reached the phone.
Nadhiya dialled Santhosh’s number. “Hey San, did you check the tv?”
“No aunty. ...” he heard her cry. “Any problem aunty?”
“Dont worry uncle. I will go to the airport and check what’s going on. I will also check how Meera is.”
“Call Ashruth and ask him to go to the airport.” Prabhu ended the call and added volume to the TV.
Santhosh called up Ashruth.
“Hey Ashruth. Did you know Meera’s flight...”
“Yes man. Meera is with me. Nothing to worry but her face and arms are burnt.” He said with a cry tone.
“What? I will come there in the next flight. I will bring uncle and aunt as well.”
“No. Wait. There is more. Uncle already had a mild attack that day. He is not supposed to know this. Tell him she is alright till I confirm her status. You don’t have to come. I will take care. She is admitted in my hospital only.” Ashruth made the point very clear.
“Alright. But please keep updating me. I will tell uncle something to convince him.” Santhosh cried and hung up.
Santhosh rushed back home with a big cry. He lay in Nadhiya’s lap for few minutes. He convinced the couple who were in deep grief. After few hours his phone rang and it was Ashruth. He slowly slid away from the room.
“Santhosh, are you away from uncle and aunt?” Ashruth enquired.
“Yes. Tell me. How is Meera? What are you going to do with the burns? Will she have it forever? “
“Don’t worry. I’m doing a plastic surgery for her. But there is a bigger problem.” Ashruth said.
“What is that?” Santhosh who was already crying enough, made it little more louder. PRabhu and Nadhiya rushed to him.
“What happened to Meera? Is she alright?” Nadhiya asked.
“Nothing aunty. It’s Ashruth and he says she is fine. Go in. I will come and explain.” He pushed them in and locked the door.
“what is the problem Ashruth?” Santhosh asked.
“Something hard has hit her skull and....” Ashruth stammered.
“And what? Tell me please” Santhosh cried.
“She doesn’t remember any bit of the past now. We call it amnesia.” Ashruth finally told it with l lthe courage he had.
“What? Why on earth is this happening to my Meera? Why so many horrors for me in the same day?” Santhosh cried.
“What other problem? Any problem there?” Ashruth got worried.
“No. Nothing. What do I do now?” Santhosh worried.
“Tell uncle and aunt that I am giving her treatment here and they need not come here. If she sees them, it might confuse her completely. She doesn’t remember any bit of past now. I will bring her there in 10- 20 days.” Ashruth said in a single breath.
“Ok Ashruth. Take care.” Santhosh hung the call and told the same to Prabhu. Prabhu called up Ashruth and only then he was convinced. But knowing that their daughter has become an amnesia patient they were thrown into deep shit. They kept crying all the time.
