Naren was a bit eager to meet Sathish after a long time. In fact, he could still remember the state Sathish was in, when he had to leave. He even worried a lot about Sathish then and tried his best to stay with him. But he had no choice as his family needed him to work and it was his first job that was in a town hundreds of miles away. He called Sathish's number as soon as he reached there, but there was no response. There were not much friends either. Hoping for good, he tried to concentrate on work then. He knew how much Sathish loved Nalini. Nalini was rich and Sathish was bright. He felt that it would never work out and warned Sathish every single day. But love being of that kind which forces one to try going beyond anything, made him to ignore what Naren said. The end for that love episode happened and happened too quickly. Nalini was no longer meeting him and Sathish's attempts to reach her went in vain. She was simply not found and Naren was warned that Sathish should not pursue looking out for her. He said that to Sathish, but Sathish understood only after being subjected to something unpleasant. Soon the news of Nalini's marriage reached them. Needless to say, Sathish looked shattered. Naren pitied him and just out of fear, stayed with him as much as possible in those days before he had to leave. Now thats all over, he returned after almost a year. He found Sathish after a couple of days, in an orphanage, being the cheery old self. Sathish had volunteered to serve them and the children there had a liking for him. "How could you be like this? I thought you would never recover!", said a relieved Naren. "Didn't you understand it yet? Sooner you will!", said Sathish, smiling.
