Ranveer paused. ''Let's go through the window. Agar humne abhi knock kiya, and un dono mein se koi bhi zinda hua, toh humaara murder toh pakka hai!''
They stood outside the window which joined the guest room to their room, and looked inside. They couldn't make out anything, all they could see was a shadowy figure of someone lying on the bed.
''Yuvi, aap pehle jaaiye!''
''No, Ranveer, tum pehle jaao!''
''Banna, main keh raha hoon..aap pehle jaaiye. Agar vo Ashi hui .. nahi nahi, vo mera murder kar degi, Yuvi, aap jaaiye.''
''Aur agar vo Tia hui, vo mujhpe apne naye naye make up and perfume try karegi .. Ranveer, dude, tum jao!''
''Fine, wait, toss karte hain''
''Okay.'' Yuvi shrugged and took a coin out. He threw it in the air.
''Heads.'' Ranveer called out.
It was heads.
Ranveer grinned. ''Aap andar jaayenge and dekhkar aayenge ki vo Tia hai ya Ashi ... ''
Yuvi climbed in the window and landed on his feet as silently as he could, and looked at the figure lying on the bed. It was dark and he couldn't see her face. He slowly moved forward, one step at a time, until he was right at the edge of the bed.
She was facing the opposite way, and he slightly tilted her head to his side.
And there she was - looking more beautiful than he'd ever seen before.
The moonlight falling on her face enhanced her sharp features, her lips were parted slightly, her eyes were closed, and her face was glowing. Even in her sleep, she looked happy, she looked beautiful.
He pulled her hands in his, and she unknowingly gripped them tighter.
He shook his head, and sighed. ''You can't even stay still in your sleep, can you?''
''Tum ek complete wacko ho, tum paagal ho, tumhaare ideas crazy hain, and agar koi tumse dushmani mod le na, toh usse tumhaare bhaggu bhi nahi bacha sakte.'' He snorted and pushed a strand of hair behind her ear. ''Tum ek wonderful human being ho, ek strong, independent, kisi se na darne wali ladki .. jo sabko unki sahi jagah dikha sakti hai, and tumhaari issi strength ke vajah se, tumhaare issi paagalpan ki vajah se, I'm in love with you.'' He bent down and kissed her on her lips gently.
He broke the kiss off, and looked at her. ''Ashi .. ''
She blinked. ''Yuvi ...'' She jumped. ''Psycho, tum yahaan kya kar rahe ho? Raat ke 3 baj rahe hain, forgod's sake!''
''Tumse mile bina raha nahi gaya, sweetheart.'' He kissed her palm, and she rolled her eyes.
''Whatever. Ab jaao tum, isse pehle mama tumhein dekh lein .. ''
''Unhein pata hai main yahaan hoon .. '' Yuvi answered.
''What? Mama ko pata hai? And unhonein tumhein aane diye?'' She got out of the bed. ''Ofcourse, aajkal toh vo bahut lovey dovey mood mein hai, thanks to Mr. Ahuja. How can I forget?''
''Well, sweetie, lovey dovey mood mein toh main bhi hoon!'' Yuvi grinned mischievously as he put his arms around her waist, pulling her closer.
''But main lovey dovey mood mein bilkul nahi hoon!'' Ashi snapped.
''Kyon nahi?'' Yuvi pouted as he pressed her between him and the wall, his arms cornering her from her either side.
''Tia Ahuja! I can't believe ki main aur vo timbet sisters banne wale hain..I mean, me and vo timbo? Sisters! Main toh phir bhi maan jaaungi, but Tia kabhi nahi maanegi, and you know that-''
Yuvi pressed his lips against hers. She was so taken aback that her eyes were left open, but her arms found their way to his neck, pulling him closer. Yuvi smiled and broke off the kiss. ''You were saying ki tum ache mood mein nahi ho, well then, let's talk to your to-be sister and her boyfriend..vo bhi yahin kahin hai, romancing somewhere!''
''What? Ranveer bhi yahaan hain!?''
Yuvi shrugged. ''Duh uh.'' He imitated her voice, and she hit him with a pillow. ''Let's go find them!''
''Ranveer, Tia ki life mein sab kuch itna acha ho raha hai .. sometimes, it feels like it's too good to be true!''
Tia was lying on Ranveer's lap as he nestled himself against the wall on the roof. ''Ache logon ke saath hamesha acha hota hai, Tia.''
''Haan, but all this sisters thing is irritating me! Ashi will never like me as a sister..Tia ko bhi vo kuch khaas pasand nahi, but Tia doesn't hate her, but she hates Tia.''
''Nahi, Tia, ye sach nahi hai .. Ashi doesn't hate you. Hum sab ko pata hai ki Ashi cares for you, and don't worry, she will accept you as her sister.''
''You really think, camel?''
''I know it, Tia.'' He kissed her on the cheek. ''I know it.''
''Toh dono lovebirds yahaan baithe hain.. '' Ashi's voice echoed from the door, and Tia and Ranveer jumped.
''Ashi, tum , vo, tum kab aayi?'' Tia looked away, trying to hide her embarassment.
''Kya hua? Nahi aana chahiye tha?'' Ashi snorted. ''Tia, tumhaare face ka colour mere baalon ke colour se bilkul match kar raha hai .. looking away doesn't hide it.''
''Nahi, Ashi, aisi koi baat nahi hai--'' Ranveer started, Yuvi cut him off.
''Relax, dude. Tum dono ko jo karna hai karo .. we don't mind, do we, Ashi? Hum toh yahaan kuch aur baat karne aaye the.''
''Kaun si baat?'' Tia asked.
''It's about both of us being sisters!'' Ashi shrugged.
Tia looked at Ranveer. ''I told you..I told you she won't like it, she won't accept me.''
''I won't accept you, timbo? Duh uh, ofcourse I'll accept you, mujhe tumse kya problems ho sakti hain? Okay, you're a timbo, tum bahut make up lagaati ho, bahut dresses pehenti ho, but other than that, you're Tia. And main toh ye soch rahi thi .. ki tum mujhe accept karoge ya nahi ? I mean, I'm a punk, and you're a .. ''
''Tia ko tumhaare punk hone se koi problem nahi hai, Ashi.''
''Really?'' Ashi raised an eyebrow.
''Okay, well, thodi bahut problem hai..but.. it's fine. Apne pappa ki khushi ke liye Tia kuch bhi karegi!''
Ashi and Tia hug, while Ranveer and Yuvi smile.
''Oh look.'' Tia broke the hug. ''Shooting star!''
''Duh uh, bas issi ki kami thi.'' Ashi rolled her eyes. ''A shooting star!''
''Ye tum jaise punk ki bas ki baat nahi hai .'' Tia snapped. ''Ye ek shooting star hai, ispe jo bhi wish karo, mil jaata hai!''
''Really?'' Ashi crossed her arms against her chest. ''Okay, let's try! Ranveer, wish for something!''
He looked at Tia, and then looked at the star and closed his eyes. ''I wish ki hum jaise hai, jahaan hai, hamesha waise hi rahein .. khush, happy, together. Ye band, ye dosti, ye sab kabhi na toothe.. and hum hamesha Tia ke saath rahein!'' He kissed her hand, and she blushed.
''Tia bhi yahi chahti hai ki vo hamesha camel ke saath rahe.. jab vo subah uthe, toh sabse pehle vo Ranveer ka chehra dekhe, and jab vo soye, toh bhi sone se pehle vo Ranveer ka chehra dekhe..''
''Llalala, ab meri baari!'' Ashi interrupted. ''Ashi ye chahti hai .. Oh, wait, main Ashi kyon bol rahi hoon? Meri wish hai ki kal sun explode ho jaaye, and world forever darkness mein aa jaaye!'' She paused when she recieved glares from Tia and Ranveer. ''Fine, fine, meri wish hai .. ki Remix forever rock kare, and main is psycho ko poori life irritate kar sakun, isse tang kar sakun, and isse ye sochne pe majboor kar doon ki kash ye mujhse kabhi mila hi nahi hota!'' Ashi grinned.
Yuvi rolled his eyes. ''And meri ye wish hai ...ki main jahaan bhi rahun, meri wacko mere saath rahe.. and uski mujhe poori life irritate karne ki wish poori ho jaaye.. coz even I can't imagine anyone else jo mujhe is wacko ki tarah poori life ke liye tadpa sakta hai .. '' He finished, and Ashi pulled him in a kiss.
''Wish granted, psycho! Poori life with me.. and tum mujhse bach nahi sakte..''
''Tumse bachna bhi kaun chahta hai, wacko?'' Yuvi murmured before he kissed her again, and the fireworks went up at a distance.
Phew, the story's FINALLY finished. It was great writing this story! :D
