I’m fine.. brother this way you will get yourself sick!… sit with us outside Zafar, I don’t feel like coming outside, I just wish that for once Aiman should come home so that I could wring her neck with my own hands! i can understand your pain but there isn’t any benefit of thinking about her, brother… we have tried to find her everywhere, but couldn’t find a clue! but why? did the earth eat her or the sky, where did she go?… she is staying in peace and we are taking every breath with problem.. Zafar, before this news spreads out in the community, do something! there is only one solution now, file an FIR… No! No.. no Zafar, no..

Not the FIR it will be really humiliating, you know the police officers, they ask weird questions I’ve a friend, SP Naeem … I will tell him to search on his own behalf, don’t worry the investigation will be under-cover Aiman, Aiman what have you done, you have left me nowhere have patience brother, have patience everything will be good phone ringing hello! sister-in-law… I’ve asked you about money and you have started to misbehave, I’ve been calling you since morning why weren’t you picking the phone? sister-in-law, I was working & wasn’t in my room, that’s why… alright enough!, I just called to say that I need the money, take the money from Zafar and give it to me, I need money sister-in-law, I’m not giving you any money, neither am I asking Zafar… look! madam… from where you get the money is not my problem, I just need the money only, that’s it!… otherwise you know what I will do to you, you know it….

Think about it, the decision is in your hands I will tell brother Javed again, I will tell him that you are disturbing me again what? you will tell Javed, what will you tell him?…what will he do to me? the most he could do is throw me out of the house, then let him! but then I will disgrace you so much that you will be divorced, as well as you won’t be able to live in your house peacefully… remember this! sister-in-law, for God’s sake! have some mercy on me… get me my money! what shall I do? No, my niece ran away by marrying the guy she loves hmm… I don’t want to file an FIR…. it’s the matter of a girl hmm… I don’t want the world to know about it yes mom who is this boy? he is my nephew… mom, I’m with uncle at the police station that girl was his sister?..

I will talk to him don’t know what will happen are you still angry with me? forgive me, thinking it as my first mistake! and the way you left me crying, that was not a mistake… before marriage, if you saw me crying you would been really worried and now after marriage but I tried, but you didn’t open the door anyways seeing you crying gave me took my breath away, that’s why i went outside because if I saw you cry more I would have died please Ali… don’t talk about death… then what should I talk about? you should just stay quite I will stay quite but the mouse in my stomach who have created so much noise would come out now… I didn’t make anything for dinner I know, that’s why for you I, myself, brought the food come on!, let’s eat together come on!, let’s go Parveen, we have heard that Aiman ran away from home? and she has also got married… No! who said this to you? if this isn’t the case then call Aiman, where is she? look Shazia, swear to me you would not tell any one outside about this otherwise our respect will turn into dust… and you are also a mother of a daughter… and daughters respect is always same.. for God’s sake…. don’t tell to anyone outside… don’t worry Parveen…

God keep safe from evil eye, congratulations… go take her inside, go and rest I am bringing sweets, have some thanks to God! Parveen you yourself announced that our daughter ran away, and now in the morning people will come and instead of being sorry they will make fun of us! how would I have known that Naghma would come, there is a time to go to people’s house, she just comes anytime, disrespectful woman! she came and went, but now, how will you close people’s mouth? you closed my mouth even, by pretending to faint…. I only wanted to do the best… and to keep her mouth shut, I’ve given her quite the food but I know, she is a decisive woman she won’t close her mouth don’t know, what will happen now? the more I thank God, the less it is we have been waiting for this god news since such a long time, when the doctor told be I am about to become a father, I couldn’t believe it truly, Javed the happiness of becoming a mother is this big, now I realized it now, you need to take care of yourself OK whatever you need or want to eat just tell me and I’ll bring it okay, by the way… you care about the new one so much!

I have started to hate daughters you are right brother…. our blind trust has led us to this point… but the same mistake won’t happen again I am thinking about going to Karachi… what? what about me? you can stay here… no way, I will go with you try to understand, till when will we just sit and eat? Arif did a favor that he let us stay here, and do you know he gave me 10 thousand as loan, that is also finish why did you borrow money from brother Arif?

Then what was I suppose to do, you did everything so unexpectedly wait, I’m coming keep this, sell this and clear your loan how can I take your jewelry? this is your mother’s memory mom had kept these for my marriage only, just sell it and clear your loan! Salma, do you have any idea? about what? you don’t know anything? why are you beating about the bush? say it clearly what is it? this means, that they have kept you in the dark till now… they can’t marry now…. what do you mean? Aiman ran away from home… what rubbish are you saying, are you in your senses? I have listened to this with my own ears Salma! what is she saying? Shazia, I think there is a misunderstanding… it isn’t like this God promise, the land left my feet when I came to know that Aiman ran away.. then I thought about you and came right away to tell you about this talk to them! okay let me call them! there is no need to call, we have to go to their house… this isn’t an ordinary matter just don’t take my name, you know Parveen she won’t leave me now look! how cleanly they kept lying to us… No! I can’t come at the moment, do one thing send me the notes forget it, all of my preparations are done and I will top this time as well… you just want me to fail anyhow right? okay enough!
