Sreesha Pov:

"Sir ?" the word slipped involuntarily.

Everyone stilled in their places including Tej.

"I never thought I would see you again sir. You don't know me but I know you." I said beaming at sir. There are a Whirlpool of emotions passed in his eyes but one of them was..... fear?

"Y-You k-know m-me ?" Sir stuttered, I frowned. Why is he stuttering like he has seen a ghost?

But I didn't use more makeup to look like one!

"How do you know him di ?" Tej asked in a puzzled tone.

"Yeah, he was the reason to complete my education Tej. He was the sponsor that I told you about" I said excitedly. He was confused and then sent a look of accusation to dad. Why is he glaring at dad like that?

"It is supposed to be a secret" sir mumbled.

"It was. But I was always curious to know the person who was paying for my studies, so, I literally begged the peon for information about you but all he said was it's confidential. So I kinda umm paid him to know about your meeting with the principal, I got to know your meeting area and followed my Principal to the parking lot where you're waiting for him. He met you there and you gave him the cheque. But I didn't get to know your name or anything. You have a very great heart to help all the poor students in our college" I said admiring his nature.

No one uttered a word, not even Niya and then I realized my babble. Tej looked almost.... disappointed? Who does that to a guest? No wonder Mrs.Sharma said I don't fit into these rich people. Now I failed as a daughter-in-law too. My father and mother were always right.

I'm just a failure.

I don't fit into any role in life.

I failed as a daughter for not listening to my parents. I failed as a wife for not taking care of my husband's needs. I failed as a daughter-in-law today for babbling in front of a guest nonetheless Karthik's uncle and Tej's Boss. He is a guest and should be treated with respect.

And here I was standing in front of him while talking my heart out.

Mom should've trained me in these kinds of things. She must be embarrassed with my behavior. All are looking at me like I was some alien. Tears started forming in my eyes. I shouldn't allow anyone to see them.

"I-I'm sorry sir, " I said and rushed into the kitchen.

He must be thinking I'm some mental case. Karthik must be humiliated by my lack of manners. He must be regretting marrying me.

'Who told you to open your big mouth dumbo!' Yeah, now this good for nothing brain also scolding me. It's her work to make me understand the situation but here it is, accusing me of its fault.

"Sree" Karthik called me in a very soft voice.

Is he not mad at me?

"Sweetheart, why are you crying? Look at me" he said cupping my face with his hands. A sob escaped from my lips. He sighed and hugged me tightly.

"Tell me why did you run away like that? What is bothering you?" He asked planting a kiss on my head resting his chin there.

"I-I'm so-sorry K-Karthik. I didn't mean to hu-humiliate you.

always me who used to wipe his tears but we have a mom to do that now.

After dinner, sir came near me with a warm smile. I don't know why but I felt secure when he's around me like I felt when I was near Tej.

"Can I talk to you alone?" sir said smiling warmly. I nodded and took him to the garden.

"I'm really sorry for my behavior sir, " I said looking at my feet feeling ashamed.

"I think I didn't introduce myself properly I'm Jayanth Thakur, Karthik's Uncle that means you can call me uncle too. You're like a daughter to me dear. Trust me I didn't feel offended I was just shocked that you talked to me. I've been asking Karthik to introduce me to you, the only girl who has the power to make Karthik smile other than his parents and friends. Now I understand why this family and Tej loves you so much" He said smiling.

"I can call you uncle?" I mumbled.

"Yes, " he said smiling.

"Thank you so much for helping me uncle, " I said, an unknown emotion passed through his eyes which he covered quickly.

"My pleasure dear, " he said leading me back to the dining room. After dinner Niya left to attend a call. When sir-umm uncle and Tej were ready to leave, he called me near him. When I reach him he held my hand and placed a gift box on my palm.

"I didn't get a chance to attend your marriage dear, think it is my gift for your wedding." I glanced at mom not knowing whether to accept it or not, she nodded positively. "Open it and see if you like it" he added nervously.

I opened it eagerly. Don't judge me, I'm fond of gifts okay?

I gasped when I look at the gift. It is a diamond necklace. Tej frowned again and his eyes went wide for a second like he just realized something.

A diamond necklace? Who will the hell gift diamonds to a no one? Mom is not even his own sister. Then why?

"Do you like it dear?" He asked nervously. I nodded not trusting my voice.

"Good. It belongs to you" he mumbled only for me to listen. He left after bidding goodbye along with Tej.
