An untold love story

 For a moment my world seemed to topple. How could she do this to me?
"Rhea you were engaged before you came here?" I asked hoping for a negative answer.
"Yes.." She withdrew herself from my arms and looked downwards. She couldn't face me.
"Then why did you come here? To play with my emotions?" I shouted at her and she winced.
"Angad.. I didn't mean to. My engagement was fixed when I didn't even know what love was. I came here and fell madly in love with you. I can't imagine spending my life with anyone else."
"Why did you come here?" I was angry. I felt deceived. 
"To spend some time in the place I grew up before I leave this country. I lived here till I entered my teenage. My parents then shifted to the city. This town is close to me."
"Rhea just go back to your house. I don't want to talk to you." I didn't know what was happening with me. How can this happen to me? I walked back into my room where I stayed all day.
She had been confused. Here she was ready to leave behind everything for Angad and there he was not even willing to talk to her. She had faith in her love for him but did he want her? She was naive to the ways of world and to the handling of men. She worried about how she would live if Angad didn't want to marry her..

I lay on my bed thinking back of the past.. Love was painful, I had experienced and yet I dared to make the same mistake. 
"Baba, are you well?" Anthony uncle looked concerned.
"I m okay" I answered knowing that he would not be satisfied with the answer.
"You love her right?"
"I do not.."
"You have to forget the past baba"
"I have.. But the present is no different. She would leave me."
"IF she is ready to leave everything for you, what is stopping you from accepting her?"
"She is young, she will miss her comfort.. "
"Give her a chance..She's been standing all day waiting for you."
I looked outside. She was pacing in her compound.. Maybe I had to give her a chance.. Her determination and faith evaporated my anxiousness..
What past? What was it that Rhea didn't know till date? All these years while Rhea thought only she had hid her engagement, Angad was holding a bigger secret? She had to know what it was.. Was she fooled and made to feel guilty all her life? Was it really her fault for what happened?
