Chennai Egmore – Journey 19

Sorry for coming late again....................

Finally a crack appears on the wall. Jegan and Mona had their first misunderstanding in their life. Every relationship faces this problem but how they come out of it is the question. Les see how they both come out of it.

Jegan was angry and hugely upset. Mona rushed to her hostel and found herself in crying. Couple of days in office both Jegan and Mona didn’t talk each other. Also both didn’t want to see. Jegan expects Mona to come to him and talk, and Mona expects Jegan to come to her. Both were unable to concentrate on the work.

On a hot fri(y)day in office, Ganesh came to Jegan’s desk along with Aruna to calm down Jegan. As it was a lunch time most of the cubes were empty. Jegan was still upset; he didn’t concentrate on the work for 2 days. Ganesh started the conversation, “You must be running out of your mind man!!!.. We thought you and Mona would be perfect couple but u both are disappointing”.

Jegan takes some time before answering, “Neenga solratha partha Did I do all the mistakes?? Look here man, her father insulting me and my family. Also she too was thinking when I asked her to come with me. That is hurting‘.

Aruna, ‘Then what u expect from her. U want her to say Yes??’.

A little silence between them, suddenly it hit Jegan’s mind how this question is meant to Mona.

Aruna, ‘How long u both were loving each other, Maximum 1 year. Then what? You have to wait little long to succeed in love. Jegan you love your family, same way Mona will love hers too. Respect her feeling and go talk to her, she needs you. Atha vittutu ipdilam scene podatha, insult pannitanga athu ithunu.. Avar ponna sight adicha avar apdithaan solluvanga….’

Ganesh, ‘Go man. She didn’t have lunch yet, call her and take her to lunch. I have never seen you like this’.

Jegan, ‘Hmmm. Makes some sense. But you both blaming only me on this’.

Aruna with little smile said, ‘Hey its not like tat. You have all the reasons to get angry at that time. We are humans rite, we all do mistakes. We just pointed out the mistakes from your side. That’s the reason we are friends…’.

Ganesh, ‘Aruna, if u had talk like this to clients. U could have got better ratings Also Jegan oda arivu kanna thiranthuta… ’.

Jegan, ‘Good one Ganesh!!!’. Both of them are smiling, but Aruna looking angrily towards Ganesh. Ganesh said, ‘Jegan save me from her da..’.

Jegan, ‘ha ha… I love u guys. But I can call Mona. But she will be very angry on me na’.

Ganesh, ‘Well you know how to deal with tat..’.

Jegan, ‘Okk.. Let me solve this…’

Jegan called Mona, Mona saw his name and didn’t attend the call. He gives another call this time she cut the call.

Jegan, ‘Damn. She didn’t pick the call’.

Aruna, ‘that’s wat u did. Now its back fired’.

Jegan, ‘I am going to her place and will talk to her’.

Ganesh, ‘Wait I will come with you, I need to meet some one there.’, saying this both left the place.

When walking, Ganesh turned back and saw whether Aruna moved out of the place or not. Once confirmed, he quietly told, ‘Machi Whatever u did was right. But u over cooked it. Intha ponnungale ipdi thaan. Go and convince her. But Gethaa vitratha. Ok?’.

Jegan looked at him, ‘Yea u r rite. But u scared of Aruna va’.

Ganesh, ‘She knows I don’t ve anyone to meet, so she could ve guessed it by now’.

Jegan, ‘Hmmm. Thanq ganesh.’.

Both reached Mona’s floor, Jegan saw Mona sitting in front of PC doing nothing and worried.

Ganesh, ‘Hey I leave now. All the best good luck. Don’t get too many beats’.

Now Jegan walks towards Mona’s desk. Almost everyone in Mona’s team knew she loves Jegan.

Mona’s friend in team saw him as she sit next to her, She told Mona, ‘Hey your Manmadhan varan’.

Mona turned back and looked at him, and immediately turned away. The girl noticed it and told Jegan, ‘Hello sir, Madam romba hot ah irukanga, poi cool pannunga’ and she left.

Jegan sits over the table and facing opposite her and started the conversation. Her red colored eyes and her face clearly shows her sadness.

Jegan, ‘Hey Mona. I am really sorry for whatever happened. I think we need to talk each other. Come let’s have our lunch outside and talk’.

Mona looked at him and didn’t reply any.

Jegan continued and trying to make the conversation soft, ‘yea I know you are very angry and want to beat me to core. So do it whatever u want but not in public. Come with me na’.

But Mona didn’t reply again and she was looking at the read mails again and again by clicking the left mouse button very loudly.

Jegan caught her hand and with sorrow looking face, ‘Hey come on yaar’.

Mona feel little comfortable that Jegan come down this far. But she refused him again saying, ‘We have a meeting now. We meet after some time’.

Jegan clearly knows she is lying because of anger.

Mona’s friend who listening to this conversation said, ‘Hey Mona we don’t have any meeting. Moreover it’s Friday’.

Mona looked at her in anger. Jegan, ‘Thanks mam. But neenga innum pogama ellam ketukittu thaan irukingala’.

She replied, ‘ha ha. But I helped u na’. Jegan, ‘Athu seri’.

Jegan looked Mona and his eyes expressed, ‘Shall we go’.

Mona nodded her head and both started leaving.

Both went to a near by restaurant where only few people are there and Jegan ordered few items for both. They sat opposite to each other.

Jegan take a sip of water and started, ‘Hey I love you. You look beautiful today. But u didn’t put any make up na’.

Mona thought he would say something but he started it as if nothing happened. Her anger level increased and looked at him with even more anger. It is sharp as a diamond; she can cut any with her looks right now. But deep inside her heart she thinks these things makes Jegan a special and different from others.

Jegan takes time and continued, ‘I know I am idiot. Even I didn’t like the start of this. Let me come straight to why are we here. First of all I am very very sorry, I lost my cool on that day and hurt u so much and hurting myself too. I am unable to concentrate anything and I was thinking abt u and our future only.’

Mona listening to him and thinking herself, ‘then why the hell you didn’t attend the calls’.

Jegan, ‘I didn’t pick up ur calls. I was in some kind of mood. Once u didn’t reply to my question na. I feel like I come to the end of the world. I went totally mad. But later only I thought from ur side and felt how badly I hurt u. please forgive me. I need u and you are more than oxygen for me in my life’.

Mona loved him so much and she was very much happy that the way Jegan loves her.

Mona said, ‘First I am sorry for my father comments. But why u left me on that day and avoided me these many days. Now my fathers don’t like me and don’t accept me as his daughter. You are the only one I Had and why did u show your back to me. You felt like u come to end of the world but I felt like the world ended’.

Mona tried hard to avoid the tears but she failed by few drops.

Jegan caught hold her hand tightly. That time a guy came and served soups for them. So they went silent for those seconds. During those seconds, Jegan mind knows he has no answer to Mona’s questions.

Once tat guy left, Mona continued, ‘I am really scared to go to my native and talk to my parents. Even I told my mom yesterday that I love you so much and pleaded her to convince father. But you avoided me. Tell me what shall I do. If U want to marry me now na? Marry me’

Mona gave Jegan some blows in her words.

Jegan stands up and come next to Mona and put his arms around Mona and continued, ‘Hey I m really sorry for all this. I take all the blames. As soon as ur father scolded me I got anger and it entered my head. It just overshadows everything in my mind and that made me to walk away from you. It all happened in seconds. I was little selfish on that day. Now I promise you even an air can’t separate us. Ok’.

Jegan continued, ‘About marriage. Unna ipovey kuttitu poganumnu aasaiya thaan iruku.. But let us wait for certain period of time. I will come with you some day and talk to him and I will ask my parents to talk to him. Hope he will agree for our marriage. Till then lets put a coma for our life. Ok?’

Mona, ‘Ok. But certain period of time means?’.

Jegan, ‘Yea wait for some 6 months. And I feel ur father will get convinced before that’.

Mona, ‘If he didn’t agreed before 6 months, on 7th month u will marry some one ah’.

Jegan, ‘Hey cha cha. Unna vitta ennaku vera yaarum kidaikathu. But everything has a limit na. So I said like tat. Only after ur parents confirmation, I will tie knots ok’.

Mona, ‘Hope my parents agree. But we wait for some more time na’.

Jegan, ‘Ok Madam. Vitta contracts ethavathu ketpa pola’.

Mona pleased and was happy. She asked, ‘U told Oxygen and Air in between. Wat s tat?’.

Jegan, ‘Apdilam sonnena. May be this is called Chemistry I guess.. ;) ‘

Mona, ‘Ooohhh’.

This time, server comes with the main course but Mona and Jegan not even finished the soups itself. Their stomach may be empty but their heart is full of love.

Journey continues……
