He wanted her to prove.
“You don’t believe me?”, she asked with tears in her eyes.
“The society does not believe you.”, he too had his eyes moistened and his voice quivering.
“Your trust is the only thing that matters to me.”, she looked at his face.
He lowered his gaze, “I am nobody without this society.”
The bed of fire was ready and so was she.
She looked at him for the last time.
“You and your society do not deserve me!”, she wiped her tears and dissolved into thin air… Sita was gone forever, leaving behind her rage, in which Ram burns to this very day.
