Rainn moved out of the house the next day. She was hurt that Raman no longer wanted her around. She spent the next days to herself in her apartment. Raman withdrew as well from the world. He stared at the canvas, he began drawing but eventually started over again and again. He was no longer in the mood to keep painting.
Aasha and Kumal never understood what happened and Raman refused to talk about it. Kumal was worried. With their final interview only a week away would they get back together in time.
Danny couldn't stop smiling. Half of him was curious as to the sudden change of heart but the other half didn't care.
Danny: I'm glad you changed your mind about us and decided to give this another chance. I missed you Rainny.
She hated when he called her that.
Danny: I am willing to forget these past months if you can. We can start fresh. Do new things together that we've never done. Try new things. I want to be there for you. All those things you said about me the other night I can see that I may not have been the best boyfriend to you. I can admit I was selfish at times and wanted to always do things my way. Rainn didn't respond. She kept moving her food on her plate.
Danny: Rainn, I was serious when I said I missed you. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to get you back. To get back that feeling we once had.
She was silent.
Danny: Rainn?
Rainn finally looked up at him. She looked at him with a warm smile and he began eating his brunch. But once he looked away her smile went as well. She didn't know why she was there. All the words he was saying meant nothing to her. She felt worse than before. She tried to stay busy with her work. Thinking that if she occupied her days at work and nights with Danny that she would forget about Raman. Eventually the hurting would stop. She was a nurse helping to heal patients, but she could not heal herself. Danny: Rainny, Rainny....Helloooo.
Rainn: What?
Danny: I asked if you wanted the salad.
Rainn: No. I'm actually in the mood for Tandoor.
Danny: What? This place doesn't serve that.
Rainn: Then I'm going to leave.
Danny: What? What's with you tonight? We can go somewhere else.
Rainn: But I don't want something else. I want Tandoor. And this is not it.
Danny: I don't get it Rainn. It's just food.
Rainn: It's not just food Danny. It's everything. I have to go.
Kumal: I can't believe you are going to throw everything away. All the time and effort we put in to get you here. And now you're going to throw it away.
Raman: She didn't want to be with me. She wanted to be with her ex.
Kumal: But she was willing to stay long enough to seal the deal.
Raman: I wanted Rainn all or nothing.
Kumal: Now what do we do? The light was at our fingertips. And now you are going back are you happy now?
Raman: I never wanted to lie in the first place. There could have been another way. Maybe there still is.
Kumal: There is no other way. She was it. We tried everything else. We tried to be fair and we got no where. All this for the months. I'm just glad she didn't take the money.
Raman: What?
Aasha: She didn't take the money. She said she didn't feel right taking the money. But I knew the real reason. This was more than just some job or performance. This was real and she felt it.
Kumal: And so do you. This is real Raman. You need to tell her how you feel.
Raman: She made her choice the moment she left and went back to him.
Aasha: No. You made the choice for her. You didn't fight for her. Instead you kicked her out. You pushed her away like you do everyone else.
Raman: No. If she really wanted us then it would have happened. I'm okay if I have to go back. I have come to terms with it. I'm grateful for the time we did have here. For the months I was able to get back with my brother and meet my niece. I have so many stories to tell back home. I am going to go to the agency and face the music.
Raman left the room without finishing his meal.
Kumal: I can't take this. Both of them are so stubborn. I will admit that I was wrong to put this together. To make a deal to marry off my brother just so he can live here. But the way they are together. It fits. It just fits.
Aasha: I know. But if they don't see it then it won't make any use for us.
Kumal: I can't just sit by and watch my brother ruin everything for himself. And I'm not talking about getting some stupid green card. I'm talking about.....I'm talking about his heart.
Aasha: Then what are you going to do?
Kumal: I'm going to need your help.
Aasha: Okay.
Day of the interview....
Aasha: Well.
Kumal: Well I tried everything. I called her, left messages. I can only hope she got them all.
Aasha: She will come.
Kumal: I love how you are so sure about everything. You always see the glass half full.
Aasha: I have faith that our brother will get his happiness in the end. Have you told him?
Kumal: No. I didn't want to get his hopes up.
Mr. Krill: So Mr. Raman Patel. As you know we are meeting here today to verify the marriage between you and Rain Bowmen whom you recently married a few months ago. As with all marriages that happen to our neighbor from other countries we want to make sure this marriage is legit and not in anyway a rouse to become a citizen.
Raman: I understand.
Mr. Krill: But where is Mrs. Patel.
Raman: Rain?
Mr. Krill: Well yes. We cannot conduct this interview without her.
Mr. Krill: She is coming isn't she.
Raman: Well that is why I wanted to come. I don't believe my wife will be here.
Mr. Krill: Is there something wrong. We can always reschedule if we need to. But we cannot have the meeting without the both of you here together.
Raman: I don't think she will be able to reschedule.
Mr. Krill: come again?
Raman: It's just that...we had a fight and..
Mr. Krill: Mr. Patel. In order for us to legitimize this marriage we must speak with the both of you. If we cannot then I am afraid we would have to deny your citizenship and you will have to leave the country immediately.
Raman: I understand. The truth is...
Rainn: Sorry I'm late.
Mr. Krill: Rainn Bowmen
Rainn: Rainn Patel. Sorry I'm late. I was not feeling too well but here I am.
Raman: Rainn!
Raman jumped from his seat and walked her outside the office.
Aasha: Do you think she got there in time?
Kumal: Well no one is leaving out. So it's safe to assume yes.
Aasha: So what did you tell her.
Kumal: What she needed to know. That she loves him and he loves her. That they are meant to be together and this is not just a marriage out of convenience.
Kumal: And that we would be lost without her as part of our family.
Aasha: You can be so romantic at times.
Kumal: I get it from my wife.
Raman: What are you doing here?
Rainn: Because I want to be here.
Raman: Did Aasha call you?
Rainn: Kumal. But he only told me what I already knew. I made a promise to you.
Raman: I know, I know. That you would help my family.
Rainn: No. For better or for worse. You are my husband remember.
Raman: And what about Danny.
Rainn: There is no me and Danny. I thought about it that night I left the house to talk to him. But I knew I was no longer in love with him. I don't really think I ever was. But with you it was different. It is different. You make it so easy to love you.
Raman: You love me?
Rainn: Yes.
They walked back into the room.
Mr. Krill: Okay. Now are we ready?
Rainn: Yes. Yes we are ready.
Mr. Krill: Now then, the easy questions first. I want to just verify some things that were in your earlier statements. When did you meet?
Rainn: A little less than a year ago. I worked at a gallery that his sister sold his artwork. She was the matchmaker that introduced us.
Mr. Krill: And you hit it off?
Rainn: Not exactly. It took some time but we were friends before we decided to marry.
Raman: It was a quick engagement. We don't waste time in my culture.
Mr. Krill: I see. Well you have to understand that this seems to convenient that all this happened in less than a year. Not enough time to really get to know someone.
Rainn: I know Raman well. From his likes, dislikes, things to make him laugh and get upset.
Mr. Krill: Well then. Let's begin the questions. I will have one of you wait outside before we proceed
It took hours but once everything was done they were allowed to leave.
Mr. Krill: We will be in touch.
Raman followed her out to the hallway away from everyone else. Once alone he stopped her.
Raman: I just wanted to say thank you. For coming back.
Rainn: I meant everything I said. It wasn't for show.
Raman: I'm sorry for what I said. I was wrong. I should not have pushed you away.
Rainn: It's okay. I'm just happy I was able to get here.
Raman grabbed his wife in a warm embrace.
Raman: I missed you.
Rainn: I missed you too.
Raman: Don't leave.
Rainn: On one condition..
Rainn: Marry me again.
Raman: I will.
Raman and Rainn were announced as husband and wife on their one year anniversary from their first wedding. This time she didn't hesitate to be kissed by him. A year later they welcomed their first daughter Rainna Bow Patel.
Rainn: What do you think.
Raman: I think she is going to need at least 3 more sisters.
