Ava, packing her luggage and heading up to the house of Arash.
She said while she get there: Rasta becomes crazy! I couldn’t stopped her!
Arash said: You couldn’t stop what?!
Ava replied with tears in her eyes: Rasta got engaged!
She didn’t say a word to me after her dad’s sickness that put him in the stage of coma.
And that’s why I didn’t know what she’s planning to do. Yesterday, after you left the hospital, Momy gave me a call and discussed the engagement thing with me! I got home. Talked to Rasta. Threatened her! Begged her! But she said that she would kill herself! She surprised everyone. Even Nakisa.
Arash said: so you have lied to me whole these times?! You said Rasta loves me and all her struggles is because of me!
Ava replied: So many unpleasant things happened: the case of your marriage with Roby. Your Dad’s betrayal. More importantly, The sickness of dad which makes her completely crazy. Rasta is in groudge. With me, with you, even with herself! I never lied to you.
Arash & Ava
Forgive me Arash! I was so lonely and I couldn’t have done anymore! I became the bad one in the sight of my family cause I interrupt you and Roby’s marriage. That’s why I came out of the house.
I didn’t want to come here as well cause I couldn’t look you in the eyse, but I thought that you have the right to know
Arash said: What can I say?! I only wanna know one thing, Although, it doesn’t matter anymore. Rasta is gone. Forever…
(Arash go upstairs and Ava cleaning her tears while smiling sadly)
Rasta is in the bathroom of the hospital and Nakisa suddenly open the door of the bathroom which caused Rasta to be shocked and scared. Nakisa said: Rasta darling! Are you ok?! Rasta replied: it’s nothing important. I just had a nightmare while I sleeping.
Nakisa said: I’m worrying about you. Do you want me to give you a ride to home? I’ll pick you up tommorow to go to the Atelier.
Rasta replied while staring to Nakisa’s hand: No you go. I’ll stay with dad. Why Atelier by the way?!
Nakisa & Rasta
Nakisa replied: can you imagine a marriage without photography?! You forgot?! We have a reservation for tomorrow. Are you really ok?! I just bought some sandwiches, let’s eat.
Ava goes upstairs to Arash’s room and said: I hate myself when I see you in this condition. You have the right to be upset. I shouldn’t struggle so much. I shouldn’t fight with destiny. At least you had a life which makes you feel happy. I don’t know! Maybe my struggles wasn’t enough.
Arash said: this was the same mistake that I had. When you love someone who doesn’t love you, you can’t push them. I fell in love with someone who didn’t loved me, while I already had someone in my life who truly loved me. So this suffer is my punishment for such mistake!
Ava said: punishment for what?!
Arash replied: punishment for ignoring someone who loves me
Ava said: you mean Roby?
Arash replied: before I met Rasta, someone used to love me. At least it appears so, cause I’ve never met her. But she always used to send me gifts and presents. For my birthdays, for valentine and… It wasn’t difficult at all to figure whom she is. I just had to check the cameras in the gallery but I didn’t. After I saw Rasta, I totally forget about her. And now she’s gone forever. I’m pretty sure that I broke her heart.
Atabak & Tooran
Ava took a deep breath and Arash continued: after all these one-sided passions, she was surely expected at least an answer. I could have at least met her for once. Tonight, when I figured that Rasta is gone forever, I reminded of her. And that’s why I’m saying it’s a punishment. Tommorow I’ll be at the gallery. I’ll check all the cameras cause I really have to find her.
Ava said: why do you wanna find her?
Arash replied: I don’t know! Maybe to apologise
Ava said: No true lover put up a curse over her beloved one
Arash replied: I doubt that she loves me anymore. She is now probably full of grudge and furry
Ava replied: no she’s not. She loves you whole these years but she hide herself cause she figured that you have someone else in your life. That’s why she remained silence and hide herself but she always loves you…
Arash said: it was you?! Whole these years?!
Ava shake his head as a yes
Arash said: why you didn’t told me?!
Rasta & Arash
Ava replied’ because I couldn’t. You were in a position that every girl might fall in love with you. I thought time goes by and you’ll recognize me at last. If I saw a shred of your interest, I would definitely let you know about myself and my feelings. Until I met Robby.
I didn’t want to break her heart. Then Rasta came to your life. I had to choose between you and her. And I chosed Rasta.
Arash said: why?! At what price?!
Ava replied: my feelings for you is priceless. It was enough for me to see you happy. I’ve never expected so much from life. And the only reason that I’m telling you now is because I’m sure that there is no one else in your life.
