13. Moving Towards Hell

Saqi thought that he should leave the place as her dad wasn’t even ready to talk but then thought it would be really hard for Sadia to deal with it alone and that he should also respect that the aged person standing next is her father, though he didn’t talk to him. Moreover, the thought that their intentions were pure and there was actually nothing of which they should have felt sorry, gave strength to Saqi and he agreed to sit inside the car and they moved towards Sadia’s home. As car’s speedometer crossed about 100 km/hr but still under control, but what wasn’t under control were Sadia’s tears. She just couldn’t stop them. There wasn’t much Saqi could have done as firstly he was now with a much elderly person and moreover he was Sadia’s dad, so Saqi was supposed to talk politely with as much respect as possible. All Saqi could think and do at the moment was to pray to God that everything should be fine. Though her dad didn’t say a word, but his annoyance and rage was getting reflected by the way car was being driven. In the mean while, Saqi got a call from his colleague who asked if he reached safely and when can they start with their official work. Saqi, though not very sure now, told him that he would reach office by early evening and they can start with the work. “Where do you have to go”, asked her dad. So Saqi, thanking God, that at least her dad took the onus to ask something, told him that he has some official work and should reach office by evening. Saqi thought that in a way her dad’s behavior was justifiable because he doesn’t know anything. It wouldn’t have been justified if after getting to know everything, he still reacted the same way. Her dad’s reaction seemed quite obvious and of course he had every right to act that way as he was her father. Convincing himself, this was all Saqi kept thinking apart from praying that at least they all should reach safely wherever they are heading towards, till they somehow reached their residence where her mother and some other relatives were already waiting. Imagine the mind state of Saqi; he was being treated as if cops take some criminal from crime area to some interrogation centre and he doesn’t know anything about that place. He was there for the first time and hardly knew anyone there apart from Sadia. Though he didn’t say a word, but prayed to God to give him strength and to control his words and temper so that they would not take a toll on Sadia later. He didn’t know what would they do inside and so he asked God to make him speak what HE considers would go best for Sadia, which none knew except HIM. Before stepping inside, Saqi told Sadia not to cry and keep faith in God; they haven’t done anything to be felt ashamed of and so they should act normal though he himself wasn’t sure of what wrath waited inside.

I have a bad feeling but I hope I'm wrong... this really doesn't feel right at all but I feel at this moment that I am totally out of context...
Saqi is a sensible and reasonable young man. He seems to be finding a way to understand the situation as much as he can and I trust he will find the best way to deal with whatever the next moments have in store for him... he has taken the best decision by praying and letting HIM lead the way... whatever happens will serve a purpose...
Sadia, I don't know, there's something about Sadia that I can't point out... let's wait and see...

I know Saqi will do his Best to resolve the problem but Im afraid that those people may hurt Saqi as he is alone there and neither no the place nor any person.it'll be better if he'll inform his friend about the situation by calling or messaging him, and should ask him to come down there.

As there are many people waiting at Sadia's home, may be planned something unexpected.

With Hope that ALLAH TALA will protect both from evil intentions and Saqi will take some intelligent step to save Sadia, as well as himself.

hhmm aik father ka jese attitude hona chahiye wese hi Sadia k dad ka bhi hai...
hhmm but still sochne ki baat yeh hai k Sadia ki mother ka behaviour toh aur bhi bura ho ga how she will manage?
anyway i hope kuch acha hi ho ga kyunki muskil waqt k baad kuch acha hi hota hai na...wait for that gud time...
