It had been raining incessantly for hours. It was seven in the evening and it was already dark as if the sun never rose and the clouds never gave way for the silver lining to appear across the sky. Within this darkness, there were quite a number of faces the stood under the shade, waiting, dull and gloomy, not only for the rains to end but also for the inevitable to be passed. Never had there been more harmony between nature and humans, given the years of feud that both had witnesses. This perfect homogeneity was disturbed as the bell rang. Number of people dispersed in every direction, ignoring the weather. The judgement has been passed!
Jonathan came running out of the court and had an umbrella in his hand. But it seemed useless since he was more concerned with running than taking refuge under umbrella. Within seconds ,he was completely drenched, and his facial expressions had an appearance of disambiguity and discomfort, not only external but due to some internal disharmony. He ran for eight blocks and entered a four storey building. There was no light in the street except a street lamp which was continuously flickering unsteadily and the lights that shone through the windows of that building.
The door was opened with a thud and Jonathan was gasping for air due to continuous running. “Carl was convicted due to lack of evidence!” And as he uttered these words, a wave of shock travelled across the room. The most awaited judgement was passed and seemingly disappointed many awaiters. As he looked around the room, Jonathan can only see disappointed faces except one and within second he knew why. Veronica was a junior lawyer at their firm and she had decided to move from that city following certain difficulties during past few months. As Johnathan approached, she picked up the box which contained all her belongings. There was a blank expression that she had when she saw him.
"Hey, I was waiting for you", she coped immediately. She handed him her last case that was still pending and was currently in a deadlock which was nowhere to be sought out in near future.
"This was my last case here. Just meet Jessica once."
In her case the landlord refused to allow her to live in the house because she failed show the legal documents related to the house following death of her husband. Her case was that their house was still in their duration of contract and landlord cannot ask her to leave the house.
Veronica looked up at him and again gave a blank expression. Somehow they intimidated him every time.
"I had my luggage picked up from the apartment by my driver. He would be waiting for me at the station", she said as she moved towards the door with her box.
" Wait! I got an umbrella. Let me drop you there"
They moved out of the building and on their way no one uttered a single word.
The station wore a grim look. Veronica turned to him and looked at him as they both were standing under his umbrella. They both wanted to say something but she turned and no words were uttered.
For a minute or two, he stood there under his umbrella and then he lowered it for it made no difference.
Due to lack of evidence and absence of legal instrument another case failed. But here the results were not obvious. For an entity to be legalised you must have what it is made of or what it pertains to. If you fail to show up even a shred of what comprises it, it cannot be accepted not even by you, let alone the world.
Generally, I have found people not following up with the title so here is a walkthrough. Nowadays, any quantity that is declared void is generally because of that fact there it failed to show up proof for its existence. In the title, fake love is "fake" because it failed to show up proof for its existence not to the concerned people but the by-standers who failed to notice their "not-so" obvious relationship. Maybe it made no difference to the concerned parties but if a case is filed then it would surely fail because it lacked the components required by the world. There are two cases that are mentioned in the above piece. " Lack of evidence" which relates to its proof to the outside world and "Absence of legal component" means if the concerned parties are asked to present its case then for ones even they would fail to explain what that relation consists.
