It had been three weeks since we confessed our feelings for each other and my uncle, aunt and brother were happy for our relationship but they feared that I would get married and I would have to stay in that haunted house. I don’t blame them as they had their reasons but I did not believe in such things and so had no worries.
I and Raghav started going out for lunch, watching movies in malls, spending time on the beach and I started visiting his house more often. His caretaker as usual was not happy with me coming there so often but in Raghav’s presence, he used to behave himself.
After few days, I got the invitation of a birthday party. It was my colleague Sonia’s birthday and we all friends from the office had been invited for her birthday party. Raghav did not want to attend the party but I forced him to accompany me as everyone in the office knew that we were dating each other.
I dressed up in a black lace gown as black was Raghav’s favorite color. I reached the party venue with Raghav and everyone got into the party mood. We started dancing as well and Raghav felt uncomfortable as he was not used to this, but with me he used to forget himself and he only loved spending time with me. However, I noticed that Sonia’s mother was not happy with Raghav coming for the party as she did not offer him the cake and also tried to avoid serving him any food stuffs. I noticed Sonia trying to make her mother understand and I wanted to confront her but that day was not appropriate to ask her anything.
The next day, I walked up to Sonia and asked her about her mother’s behavior and she told me to come over to her house. I was confused as what the matter was that she could not tell me in the office.
I went to her house and her mother offered me breakfast. She looked worried and I asked her the reason to which she said “I will tell you everything but you first have breakfast.”
