15. Conversations Reaching Apex

And with the course of time, conversations just started to reach towards apex. Every one sitting there was so much elder. Saqi thought whatever they did and said, at the end they were Sadia’s parents and he was supposed to respect that. He talked with them with the same politeness and respect as he would have talked with his own parents. He thought as to how and what should he say that would at least make them realize how their behavior towards their daughter has just made her life ominous and at the same time thought the impact his words would make on them. He thought that if they didn’t understand what he would try to make them comprehend, it would just make their feelings harsh towards their daughter. These all things kept revolving around his mind and he decided not to speak a word of it as it would really make it a lot more difficult for Sadia later. She would lose whatever share of love she had from her parents and that would make her survival even more miserable there. Saqi, as a good friend didn’t mind taking it on him as far as it would be productive for Sadia in the long run. He had to speak the truth and so he told them that they both were friends, at least that is what Saqi always considered it to be. It was just a very respectful friendship and he always wanted Sadia to respect that.

To be honest, he himself felt uncomfortable to say all that what Sadia used to tell him about her kin. He thought when her parents couldn’t listen and understand their daughter in so many years, what and how would they understand a person whom they know for just an hour and why would they trust him. There was no reason for them to have trusted Saqi and actually they didn’t as was getting reflected from their part of conversation. But Saqi had faith and knew that at least God knew that he hasn’t done anything wrong for which he actually should feel guilty and this was what gave him strength to move along. So it doesn’t actually matter what her parents think and whether they trust him or not. Even Sadia very well knew that Saqi was right in every word he spoke. She just couldn’t take him as a friend and none can ever blame her for that. So when Saqi told her parents that it’s just a good friendship between them, she just couldn’t take it. She was just tears. But this was what Saqi always used to say her also whenever they spoke on phone and so he felt that it’s best to speak truth at the moment. Though strange, but with course of time, he expected everything would be fine. Saqi felt that if not other things, but it was quite important for all of them to know that they just share a good friendship and there was nothing as such what all of them seemed to have thought. And as expected, instead of being supportive and making her feel comfortable, they all embarrassed and fired her with questions as to why and how did she even dare to think her way.  And amidst all this, all Sadia was left with, were her tears. They just couldn’t comprehend what she would be going through, what would be her state of mind at the moment and how asking her such kind of questions would impact her.

Saqi has said what he has to but unfortunatly in front of a crowd of people... can't possibly imagine Sadia's pain... This was all he could do... But what more will come out of this? I don't think this will be the end of the story with the family somehow!

Saqi is trying his best to make things easier for sadia but her parents wont take her friendship with a boy and if they come to know what actually she feels she will be in trouble...hope 4 the best..

...mayb was wrong before...sorry for tht....
well dnt know...if it ws a 'right time-right place' thing..but saqi hd to do it...
her family wd be more suspicious if he stayed silent abt the relationship...n if, still, he said anythin abt love, there wd be 1000 times more torture for sadia....so this ws definitely his brain work...but unfortunately,it ws sadia who hd to face the worst...hope she will be alrite..god bless...
i wonder..how wd her family deal with her love affair..if they cant even take the frenship betn girls...strange!!!!!

Sadia's Feeling

Apne to pehle hi se begaane the
Ek gair se ummed laga rakhi thi
Waqt k sath ye aas bhi meri toot gayi
hi meri apni kismat phirse phoot gai
