Revenge

The last repeat story

“Ravi, what you are doing is not right. You have been running around with Vinita when you are already engaged to Sarala.It is not fair once you have committed to marry someone else. Even though you are not yet married to Sarala, it is plain cheating. You must move away from Vinita for the good of both” said his friend Ram.

Ravi laughed and replied “Oh don’t be such a prude. My marriage is slated only three months hence. How does it matter to Sarala what I do till then. Vinita and I like each other. How does it bother you?’

“Didn’t you tell me that you had assured Vinita that you will marry her? She is trusting you and giving herself to you in the hope of both getting married. I would not approve of this” said Ram

Ravi with an impish smile said “Forget it. It is all common in love and if she is foolish she will have to pay the price.”

“Sarala, you have been dating Mohan for almost three years and had gone very intimate with him going out with him now and then to holiday spots. How can you ditch him and settle for Ravi? Is it not a clear betrayal?” asked her friend.”

”Tell me what am I do when this Mohan is virtually a pauper and lives on his meagre monthly salary. He keeps counting money even when he takes me out to cheap joints. No doubt he keeps me happy. But I cannot imagine a life of want when all I need is luxury and a foolish husband who will shower money on me and allow me to do what pleases me most. Ravi is garishly rich with huge business interests and property. I will nevertheless be intimate with Mohan as hitherto though I may not marry him” replied Sarala

“You are not only an untrue lover but also a likely cheater.Fie on you” said her friend.

“Vinita” called her roommate Sharanya.”I hear you are getting married to Ravi and that both of you are already going steady and intimate. Is it true?’

“Yeah, he is madly in love with me and has promised to marry me within three or four months. You know I need someone in the circumstances I am placed.”

Sharanya asked her “Did you not tell him that you tested positive for HIV? How can you spoil a young man’s life? What you are doing is totally unethical and dishonest.”

“He never asked me. Why should I volunteer information that would take him away from me?” said Vinita

In life God has His own mysterious ways to punish the wicked. None can cheat Him. People think they are clever only to be overtaken by revenge from unexpected quarters.

  3. for the first time i am reading in your stories a very disturbing topic. I always come here expecting 'feel good' short stories, I was caught unawares this time. I think this will be an eye-opener for today's generation.

  14. Yes having multiple partners and relationships are stressful and dangerous..! I think that HIV/AIDS was probably sent by God to teach us this lesson. Good story!

  15. Namaste......
    Our life is our responsibility. Though it would be ideal for the ones we entrust our hearts to, to reveal the truth and protect us it does not negate us of our responsibility. There are many who do just as this woman did, the truth is no one will come up to you and say, 'i am hiv positive' the reality is in this day and age one has to treat everyone as if they are HIV positive and take the neccessary precautions. Condoms, sperimicide, visiting clinics together and having the test done with signed consent to see each others results in the presents of the doctor because one is not guaranteed that the person would reveal the truth. A sad sentiment for sure but that is the reality. In the US men have been jailed for delibrated infecting more than a dozen women, his attitude was, if am going i am taking as many with me as i possibly can. This has now become a dangerous game many play. Its a different time and one has to be cognisent of the realities of engaging in unprotected sex. Hence, your life, your responsibility and you do not turn that over to another in hopes that they would have your best interest at heart.

    good piece.
    stay blessed.
