I met her when we were studying at the same high school. It is sparkling, luminous and simply irresistible. At a time when I felt alone, lost and defeated in life, she was there to hold me. She helped me to be the man I am today. We are both poles apart. While I’m introverted, she enjoys socializing and meeting people. And so, fortunately, our parents also accepted our relationship.
Soon we got married, but from the second week of our new married life, I was assigned to Silchar. Even though I wanted to stay with her and bask in my only reason for happiness, I showed up for my duty, afraid that I wouldn’t let my dad down. Weeks and months passed and Naina kept calling me to visit her soon. But I didn’t have the chance to visit him. Instead, like in the good old days, I started writing letters. We often made video calls, but I continued to write to him. She would send me back, even if she was bad. However, I loved it.
It had been almost a year and a half since I had met Naina after our marriage. The pain of staying away from her stung me too much. I wanted to go back to her, but alas, I had to be faithful to my duty. After 2 months, I was able to go home for 2 weeks. I was absolutely thrilled! Naina was waiting for me, smiling. I felt so relieved to see her! The first few days were pure bliss. But soon enough, I noticed something was wrong. She seemed a little distant, maybe even sad at times, but I didn’t want to waste our happy time thinking about sad times. So I did everything to make her happy. And then I had to leave.
This time I was on the job for 8 months. Time passed painfully at the borders, and Naina kept my happiness alive. The idea of going back to her was my only motivation. Being an army officer was my duty. However, Naina’s letters have diminished and our video calls have become less frequent. Therefore, I was determined to talk to her when I returned home for the second time. But, this time, I planned a surprise and chose not to tell her I’m coming home. Imagining the happiness on his face excited me a lot.
When I arrived at our house in Aligarh that day, there were clothes lying around. The whole house looked like a mess. I put my bags in a corner and fetched Naina from the bedrooms, a bouquet of flowers in her hand. And then I saw her in bed with another man, lazily lying on top of each other. The bouquet fell from my hand onto the floor and the noise alarmed them both. Naina looked shocked but terribly sad. I returned to the main gate when Naina ran after me, calling my name and shouting, “I’m sorry.
The betrayal hurt me so much that I immediately checked into a hotel, refusing to talk to him. His constant calls annoyed me. But it was the first time I cried. My wife, whom I loved with all my heart, was cheating on me. She later explained that all she felt was loneliness in that big house and she needed someone to hold her. Her loneliness led her to cheat on me. She cried and begged me to forgive her.
I feel like a lot of it is my fault. If I hadn’t been in the army, I could have done a normal job where I could come home to her every day. She wouldn’t have cheated on me if I had been there. And soon my resolve to fight for my country as an army officer began to wane. I wanted to change jobs, but the idea of disappointing my father stopped me. I have no idea where my life will take me, as I haven’t even been able to forgive Naina or myself for the situation we find ourselves in today.
