Carmel says an emotional goodbye to Kush and the Square
SHE’S LEAVING THE TRAGIC PAST BEHIND…
It’s an emotional week for the Kazemis this week, as Carmel says a tearful goodbye to son Kush and Albert Square. She’s decided to start a new life in Dubai, where she can be close to son Darius and try to move on after Shakil’s horrific murder. However, her other son Kush, although understanding of her reasons and supportive of her decision, is still bereft at saying farewell to his mum. But before she goes, Carmel has some unfinished business to take care of.
“Ever since Shaki died, Carmel has been on a mission to stop knife crime, so no other parent has to go through this unbearable loss,” our Walford insider reminds us. “It’s been very tough, especially given the resistance she’s faced, yet the hardest part of it was trying to get Keegan back on an even keel. And following his behaviour on Halloween night, that task has been harder than she thought.”
With the events of the week before still fresh in her mind, Carmel busies herself by handing out some of Shakil’s possessions to those who loved him. He was such a huge part of their lives, and Carmel wants the people who mattered to her son to have something to remember him by. The effect his death has had on the community, particularly all of Shakil’s teenage friends, has been profound. Carmel doesn’t have much to console herself with, but knowing his life made a difference is something. All she can hope is that Keegan learns this lesson about himself.
“She’s all set to head off, yet it’s vital to her that she and Keegan have some closure,” reveals our spy. “Not only was Keegan her son’s best friend, but obviously he was involved in the incident that led to Shakil’s death. She hates the thought that this trauma could plague his life forever.”
