Krishna rushed into the room. “Mother! Help me.”
Rama looked at her distraught sister. Something unusual was up.
“What is it, Daughter?”
“It’s Rohit. He says we’re leaving.”
“Don’t be ridiculous.”
“He says he’s tired of listening to Father. He’s going home and he says I must go with him. Mother, I don’t want to go to his family. What can I do?” Krishna broke into tears.
“Stop crying,” Laxmibai ordered. “We need to figure out what’s happening. Where’s Rohit now?”
Krishna took a deep breath. “He left to hire a cart.”
“Where’d he get the money? What’s he been doing?”
“I don’t know.” Krishna wrung her hands.
Rama could hardly breathe for excitement. She hoped Rohit was in trouble. “Mama, Rohit went somewhere after the recitations. He was supposed to be with Father, but he wasn’t.”
