Radhika was climbing stairs as Dev was closing the door behind'... She slowed down for him to join her.
Dev: are you not afraid?
Radhika: for what?
Dev: no'. then with little hesitation' that you are alone now here ..
Radhika: how come , you are there na.. with a normal chirpy smile..
Dev: that's why I asked?.. in a very low mumbling tone.
Dev: nothing.. I was just checking.. if you are not, then it is good..
Suddenly as if remembering something
Radhika: I forgot something, let me get it.. ok' saying that she went to her room quick..
Dev stood there , pausing for a sec and thinking what she may be up to?
Within few minutes , she reappeared in front of him with a packet..
Dev looked at her questionably'
Radhika with a smile went into his room..
Dev: what is that Radhika..
Radhika: it s a secret..
Dev followed her curiously.. she went near the suitcase and opened it..
Radhika: Did you take anything out after my packing?
Dev: why? You doubt?
Dev: tell me what it is?
Radhika opened the main packet and took the agarbathies out..
Dev: Incense '!!
Radhika: um.. remember you told me , you miss there..
Dev with a simple smile: oh.. so when did you buy this?
Radhika: I told daadi to get it and she did it..
Dev: so, its from daadi..
Radhika zipping back the suitcase..: no its from me..
Dev: you said daadi brought it ..
Dev: then this is from daadi..
Radhika with little tinge of sadness: she brought it because I told her to.
Dev coming closer: but you didn't buy it..
Radhika in broken words: vo.. how will I? I usually won't go for anything.. I just tell daadi or birju bhayya'..
Dev: Um' its ok.. so now what you want me to do with this?
Radhika looked at him puzzled
And then with a tinge of unhappiness: you really don't like my gift..
Dev covering his smile: Its nice and thank you..
Radhika just looked t him with her corner eyes .. she took steps to walk away..
Dev held her hand: so now where are you going?
Radhika still in her unhappy tone: mom told me to take rest.. I need to go..
Dev: so the headache is back ..
She didn't say anything..
He brought her arm to the front circling her waist level standing from behind..: Radhika, I said I love it..'
Dev in a soft voice: I think it is 'you.' whom I am going to miss a lot this time.. each second of my lonelitime will remind me of you.. so will you come with me, now..
Radhika without thinking a fraction: oh ya, why not, pack me also along with all these ..
Dev forcing her on her hand and turning her to face him..looking into her eyes he said: Ha, I will take you one day.. but not like packing along with anything else.. but then... looking into her curious eyes he continued, imagining that scene.. you will be decked in a red dress, and a well decorated doli will be waiting for you.. and in front of everyone's eyes, I will take you with me.. and I can't wait for that day..
Radhika's upper eyelids dropped down as she heard of that moment..
Dev: why? Don't like it that way? Or you want me to pack you the way you said.. as his eyes checked on her each reaction.. she felt his eyes over hers checking over hers.. .. to cover herself , she hide her face in his chest.. Dev with a smile wrapped his arms around her back at the neck level.. with a smile of satisfaction..
Dev: why.. trying to hide your shyness from me?
Radhika tried to hid her head more into his chest.. as if not to talk anymore..
Dev smiled again , taking her into him.. his smile slowly faded from his lips and in a normal tone he said with a sift tone: really Radhika.. I will miss you.. every day and night..
Hearing this , unknowingly her arms stretched out, sliding around his chest to the back.. He felt the shiver as her arms circled him, for the first time.. conveying him the anticipated missing feeling that is haunting her too..
Radhika mumbled near his chest: come back quick..
She tightened her arms conveying she wants to believe it and so did he.. and slowly closed his eyes, to take that moment into him..
Listening to his ehartbeats, She in her mind, . you don't know what is going on in my mind.. for you it was just a feeling of three weeks..but for me' her eyes felt wet , and she refused to think anymore.. she felt his hand as it tightened again over her, to make her more comfortable and she took that precious moment to her.. feeling his physique in her arms' time ticked by'
Slowly Dev: Radhika, why don't we make it memorable..?
Radhika loosened her arms around him and looked at his face'
Dev loosening his grip and looking back at her..: you want to give me a hand.. with a spirited face..
Radhika nodded her head with agreement..
Dev: ok then.. all are coming soon, right.. so today's dinner prep is from me, with your help..
Radhika smiled with agreement.. :Ok
Dev: ok, then let's check it out.. what is there..
Both went down to kitchen..
Dev: you make a tea.. by then I will decide on something..
Rahdika with a smile.:. agreed..
Dev: Radhika, I may need something really quick.. do onething.. you cut all this, by then I will get it.. and then with another thought..: no.. let's have tea and we both will go and get it..
She smiled seeing his frustration.. he want to do it, but don't want to leave her either..
They had tea.. all through the sips, his eyes were looking for more stuff to find..
Radhika smiled again'
They went out and came back quickly.. and within seconds got back into action..
Suchi and Lechu came back '
Suchi: lechu, ask dev to come down..
Lechu; ha mom..
Lechu went up and called out for suchi, saying Radhika and dev not there in room..
Suchi: what? Where is he then.. both came early'i know Radhika was feeling some headache..
She heard sound from the kitchen.. with a confusion she went to check and found Dev slicing the onin and his were eyes watering.. Radhika near by peeling the skin off from the garlic..
Suchi in a confused tone: what is going on here?
Dev and Radhika looked at suchi.. and then with a smile: giving you a break..
Suchi putting her end of pallu , throwing back onto her shoulder ': what?
Dev: babuji, daadi and all coming, and I know you will get busy here.. so I thought to give you a break,, you go relax.. I am in-charge for dinner today..
Suchi: oh really.. looking at Radhika.. then what Radhika is doing here? I thought she has a headache
Dev: oops.. I need an assistant..
Suchi: oh really.. but her headache..
Radhika: ith a high volatge smile: I am fine mom.. it went away..
Suchi: nice to know that..
Lechu: Can I join too..
Dev: yes, of course.. then looking at suchi; go relax and get ready to welcome the guest.. the kids are in action for you today..
Suchi: Ok.. but for now I need a tea..
Dev: no problem.. Radhika..
Radhika with a smile: ji..
Suchi just smiled and went away' while having tea Suchi said: dev, I brought agarbatti for you.
Dev: ji !!!!!With a surprise look..
Radhika too looked at Suchi in sursprise..
Suchi: remember one time when you called me, you said that' ...so I totally forgot about it.. glad that I remembered.. it's the same I use here..
Dev looked at Radhika as Radhika still looking at Suchi'
Dev; thanks mOm..
Suchi; ha, and now don't tell me that you are not going to take it with you. And then looking at Radhika..: Rahdika I kept that in his room, just pack it in too. I don't want to touch it, as he gave you the responsibility.. with a teasing smile.
Later towards night Mohan, Daadi all came.. Mohan was surprised to see Dev in full action, that also in kitchen.. little talk went on.. kids served food for the elders..then they sat down with happy face and exchanging jokes and later all gathered in the main hall. Time was passing by.. Dev was comfortably sitting near Suchi as her fingers were massaging his head.. enjoying it completely.. somewhere his mind was feeling bitterness, leaving everyone like this.. Radhika's eyes were cornering him every now and then, and saw the shade changing on his face'
Surender asked about packing', and he said it all finished..
Surender; then I think its good to go to bed now. You might be feeling tired too.. looking at Mohan..
Mohan: no I got used to travel like this', but may be mom..
Daadi: I am tired, but I don't mind sitting for some more time..
They continued with their talk little more time..
later they all retired to their room.. Radhika was laying in her bed under daadi's arms wrapped around her at her shoulder level'... her eyes were open.. thinking of him.. he never missed coming to her once she came here, and tonight '... he won't come.. daadi is with me.. what he might be thinking now.. he was looking sad.. he is going to miss all of us.. she turned to lay on her back, looking at the ceiling she again thought of him...' time was ticking by..and then finally.. she looked at daadi who already dosed off..
Daadi didn't say anything..
Radhika with a slight shake: daadi..
She reluctantly opened her eyes..:um..
Radhika: can I go and check on him?
Daadi tightened her forehead: why?
Radhika: he was looking sad at that time.. and I think ..
Daadi: he might have slept..
Radhika: please daadi, can I just go and check once.. if he is sleeping then I won't disturb him.. also mom brought him something and I didn't pack it..
Dadi with a smile: ok .. but come back quick ok..
Radhika with an ear to ear smile: thanks daadi ... then gave her a kiss over her cheek and ran to his room..
She went near and said in her soft voice: "whose face are you trying to see there?Is it mine.. then I am here, next to you.." with a smile on her face..
Dev jerked and turned to see his Radhika standing just near him.. his eyes gone wide and unbelievable, he said: Radhika.. you here!!!!!!' and then looking at the door suspiciously. 'daadi"
Dev held her shoulder to make sure she is actually near him.. she smiled again.. " I am here only.., need to believe.."
He smiled again and then suddenly went near the bed lamp and turned it on..
" there, now I can see you nicely.." with an ear to ear smile..
Dev: ok , tell me what made you to come at this time..
Radhika with a thinking: oh.. actually I forgot to pack mom's gift..
Radhika went near the suitcase and found the packet over it, she opened it and showed to him..
Dev: now tell me what will I do with so many of this.. first you and now Mom.. I think I better not to tell much of this missing things..
Radhika with a smile: why?
Dev: confusion..as dad said, now which one I will choose.. mom's or your's
Radhika : both..
Radhika took her gift and mixed both and shuffled nicely' "see now, tell me which one mom brought and which one me..?
Dev: I can make it out from the smell..
Radhika: that's ok.. but still I touched both, so which ever you pick, has my touch over it.. also the other one daadi brought.. not me.. so.. it doesn't make any difference.. saying that she packed it back and closed the box..
She stood from there ..: whatever you take from these two boxes, will remind you of me.. because I packed it..
Dev looking at her lovingly: really.
Radhika: um.. except one..
Radhika went near his backpack and slide her hand in that side pocket.. her eyes tightened at the corner and her forehead tightened.. her hand quickly moved to the other pocket and then searched again, she moved the backpack near to her and peeked on both and then looked at him with a grumpy face..
Dev still looked at her with that lovely smile: what?
Radhika: where is it?
Dev: what? With a very innocent voice.
Radhika opened the main flap and started checking in it..
Dev came near and wrapped his arms around her waist from the back..
Radhika shook her body to make him to release her and with frustrated face, she again checked in each pocket.. Dev tightened his grip, not to leave her, thouroughly enjoying her frustration he moved his lips near to her ears and asked: so that thief was me, and you know that..
Radhika paused for a second as his voice mumbled near her ear.. her heart skipped few beats.. she didn' t say anything..
Dev with that teasy smile on his corner lips: why .. this silence now?..
Radhika didn't say anything.. she stood still in his hold..
Dev: tell me, why you kept silent at that time..
Rahdika doesn't have any words to tell him at this time. She don't know what to tell him.,
Dev: you know what? Its nice to know that little game you played with me.. making me believe that you were sleeping.. that make me to love you more..
Radhika was feeling tickly as his each breath was falling near her ear..
Rahdika: chodiyena.. in a very soft pleading voice..
Dev: Don't you want to know where it is..
She cornered her eyes on him..
He turned her in his arms and looking into her curious eyes he lifted his right hand up and the payal just hanged down from one end.. he said softly: it was with me.. I was missing you.. he loosely held his left hand around her..
Radhika with a smile took that form him and then looked at it lovingly'
Dev just looked at her smiley face..
She walked away from near him and went near the window'... and looking in to the darkness she said: tomorrow when you will be flying through that dark soft bundles, I will be watching you from here'
Dev came near: and I will be looking at you closing my eyes tight....'and then try to reach you' saying that he wrapped his arms around her..
The silence engulfed them.. she leaned back onto him.. and closed her eyes'. Time went by'.... it was around 5 AM.. as if they heard the clock tick.. loud, Radhika opened her eyes as if from a deep sleep'.... a nice dream'
Radhika: I need to go..
Radhika moved her body to the front as dev slowly released his arms around her.., facing him she said: go to bed' its too late..
Dev: what about you.. college?
Radhika: no , I am not going today.. I want to be around.. her words trailed off' and then with broken words she said: take rest' saying that she walked away..
Dev smiled looking at her disappearing figure..touching his cheek where her lips left the softness for him to feel..
With a smile he went to bed, the payal made it happy sound as he slipped into his sweet dream..
Surender: Is he still sleeping?!!
Suchi: that's what I am also thinking..
Lechu: I can check on bro.. one second.. saying that she flew from there..
Lechu felt little naughty , she went near his ears and loudly: bowwwwww
Dev startled in his sleep and opened his eyes and sat on his back within fraction of seconds'
Lechu covered her mouth to control her laugh..
Dev comprehending back to reality in a sleepy tone: lechu.. what was that?
Lechu: Bro.. it is 9Am.. what happened to you today' ....sleeping like a baby..
Dev looked at the clock.. ; Oh My' 9!!!!
Lechu: um, 9.. and all are waiting for you for breakfast..
Dev: just 2 minutes Lechu, I will be down..
Saying that he ran into the wash room..
Lechu smiled and went down.. soon he joined everyone at the dining table..
Dev sat with an excuse: sorry '
Surender: its ok beta.. at least you had a good sleep..
Dev tried to smile'... unknowingly his eyes searched around and didn't find Radhika..
Dev looking at the table seeing the juice: mom, no tea..
Suchi who was serving in daadi's plate: oh.. will make one quick..
Dev getting up from the chair: no mom, its fine.. will get one..
And he went to kitchen.. saw his Radhika near the burner, totally unaware of him coming behind.. he scanned around behind him one more time to locate everyone in place.. he quickly went behind and grabbed her from behind' "Good morning sweetheart.."
Rahdika with a tinge of shyness..: woke up. Finally..
Dev: um.. why didn't you wake me up early?
Radhika didn't say anything.. just smiled ..
They heard suchi's voice coming in: Dev, I can make it..
Dev moved to the side quick.. Radhika again smiled, dev glanced at her teasing smile..
Dev: Its Ok mom..
Radhika: tea is ready mom..
Suchi: so you knew.. with a teasy smile..
Radhika: no vo.. I heard lechu going to wake him up..
Suchi: um..um' now both of you come, let 's have breakfast together..
Radhika poured the tea into a cup and with smile she gave that to him..
He took it from her with a thanks..
They had their breakfast.. time was passing quick at Delhi house and soon it was time for him leave.. everybody showed a happy smile around, and loud talks '... Dev went to get ready.. his heart was feeling the ache somewhere deep.. he was thinking of the time he came in.. thought there is so much time to spend with everyone.. so much time to know about everything.. but alas! I wish if I could stop this time for me.. forever' .. he combed his hair',..he was in his own thoughts that he forgot the people around for some time.. and looked into the mirror one more time. He went down with the suitcase.. and brought both down.. Surender: see he was refusing to carry even one, now end up with two..
Daadi: Birju has packed the pickles well, so it will stay good , don't worry..
Surender: pickle too..
Dev: um.. nodding head..
They loaded the boxes into the car.. lechu was kept on telling him something after other'
Suddenly as if remembering something..: dad, my backpack.. will be right back..
He dropped the bag down onto the bed and slowly walked near to her. His eyes fixed on hers, his heart felt heavy.. his right hand forced the open flap of the door near ,on her side to close completely.. she didn't move her eyes.. her lips were shivering . she felt the air moving up and down in through her throat to her chest'
Dev with a very soft voice: I .. I was looking for you every where, and you'
Dev went near bed and took the bag in his hand and throw that on his back, and in a hurry he was about to walk away....'his hand touched on that closed flap but then unknowingly his eyes fell on her again...'
Dev with a pathetic tone: how could you Radhika?
Radhika mumbled in his embrace : come back soon..
Dev releasing her : um'. Along with nodding his head'.
They heard Lechu's call. Radhika looked at him.. " I am not coming down.. I can't '..
Dev just picked the bag from the floor, open the door flap.. pausing one more minute at that place, he walked down quickly..
Radhika heard Lechu's feeble sound of questioning'... she moved away from the wall.. she looked down from near the door flap.. and yes, the space was looking empty'/.... her heart hesitated to accept the fact that he left.. she ran quick. down stairs and then near the main door. She saw the car moving down towards the main gate.. Dev's heavy heart spotted her, in that passenger rear mirror.. he didn't turn back, but he tried to smile at Lechu's silly comment at that time...'
Daadi came back and found Radhika standing near the door, looking at the empty path.. she touched her shoulder to bring her back into reality'.... Radhika just walked along with her..
Dev reached at the airport.. check-in went fine. Suchi tried to control her tears. Surrender made jokes saying that those tears are for the next six months.. Lechu also tried to cheer everyone up..

So happy to send him away ,right.. me too.. so that we can bring them back together forever…
Lexmis.. the guava part.. oh dear, for me too.. guava is the most fav fruit of mine. Always no 1 on the list.. me too missing it soo much.. especially the white one with the tiniest seeds in it.. its so yummy… and the plucking from tree , checking everyday to see the color change, then grabbing before my friends or my brother.. oh my.. so you did had a guava field.. oh my..that's awesome.. we have three of them in our backyard(back in India, here it is full of SNOW..)
Regarding Rahdika's behavior.. her reluctance to accept Dev at the beginning and the thought, as radha mentioned: there is something hidden !.. nothing is there to hide, at present she is behaving what she is really feeling.. but yes, you are right.. there is something that I left behind, that complexity will come out with later updates only dear.. you are talking about my mad world.. and I am not in it yet..
Arre yarr.. you all talking about Rahdika's gift for him.. what about our agarbathi!!!!! Isn't that was a cute gift from her… he he he … and if there is anything else.. it is her shy smile, her eye cornering, her tries to stand visible to him.. her conscious action to please him.. her talks.. forgetting the world around her for him… that is her true gift for him.. showing him her real state of mind… he he he how is that.. what you think..
As radhika5 said some of us may not comment-but are there reading the FF.. yes I totally get it now. I understood that from that message I got.. so yes dear.. I am here, as long as you all are with me.. and yes someone was teary eyed.. but now fine.. thanks for the cheering up buddies..
