Prerna is really angry and rushes to Rishabh's office. She forgets her keys in the car and runs up to Rishabh's cabin. Rishabh is talking on two phones simulataneously and viewing a flow-chart on his laptop. Rishabh seems extremely worked up and frowns at whatever he is listening to on the phone.
Prerna does not enter the cabin but sees all this from outside. She grabs Rishabh's secretary and asks her why Rishabh is so over worked. The secretary is unable to give her a great excuse and Prerna reminds her that she has been employed so that she can assist her boss in his work and reduce his workload. The secretary apologises. Prerna tells the secretary to postpone all meetings that she can for two days. The secretary agrees and leaves.
Prerna is looking angrily at Rishabh. Rishabh slowly finishes both his calls and types something on the laptop. After a while, he is totally exhausted and just crashes on the chair. He calls for a coffee but Prerna enters and tells him that he will not have coffee as he has so much of acidity and needs to have some sleep. Rishabh tells Prerna not to disturb him as he is in the process of finalising a very crucial deal for the company. Prerna argues with Rishabh that he does not have time for anything else in his lif.e Rishabh gets angry and tells her that he knows his priorities well and she does not need to mess around with him.
"I am messing around with u?!" Prerna gasps in disbeleif and storms out of the office. Rishabh is frustrated by her behaviour and thinks that Prerna will lose all her cool when he reaches home.
Rishabh finishes his work and goes home to find Prerna buried in her work.He asks Prerna for some dinner but Prerna tells him to fix it for himself. Rishabh finds out that Birju is on a two-day holiday and damns himself. He looks into the fridge and sees the day before's Paneer Kofta which Prerna had so lovingly made for him. He feels sorry.
Rishabh puts the paneer in the oven and goes to Prerna. She is busy with many files and is going through them.She has her specs on.Rishabh goes to her from behind and holds her around her tummy with both his hands. Rishabh puts his chin on her shoulder and tells her softly-"I am very sorry Prerna, please forgive me"
Prerna is least interested in his apoligies and tells him abruptly that it is alright-
Rishabh-"But I really AM sorry na Prerna!"
Prerna- "Fine! I told you it's OK!!"
Rishabh-"So gimme a hug then!"
Prerna-"Dont disturb me please..I have better things to do..I am busy right now..and this is IMPORTANT work.."
Rishabh is a sad by what Prerna says and goes away from her and gloomily eats his paneer as he watches Prerna go through the files again and again. Prerna can feel Rishabh's gaze on her and starts shifting un-easily.."Just a little time more.." she tells herself.
Prerna finishes with the files and fixes herself some food. Rishabh again hugs her from behind but that very moment Prerna busies herself with a business call and goes to another room. Rishabh is now majorly angry and struts here and there impatiently..
Prerna comes out of the room and Rishabh grabs her hand very tightly-
"Leave me!" Prerna tells him..
Rishabh takes the phone from her and talks to her angrily-"Whose phone was this..who were you talking to at THIS hour of the night?!"
Prerna-"That is absolutely none of your business Rishabh..let go of me.."
Rishabh totally loses his cool and pulls Prerna to him and grabs her tightt with both his hands.
"Not my business?!!!!" roars Rishabh and Prerna really gets scared. Rishabh totally loses his cool-
Rishabh-"Is it NOT my business to know who my wife talks to at 1am!? What the HELL are you talking about!!"
Prerna cannot take it anymore and tells Rishabh that THIS is exactly how she feels when he does the same things but she cannot do what he is doing to her right now. Rishabh feels guilty and leaves her hand. Prerna has tears in her eyes and explains to Rishabh just how she feels and when SHE can manage to take time out for him then why cant he?!
Rishabh takes Prerna in his arms and wipes the tears with the back of his hands. Rishabh puts his fingers beneath her chin and tilt her face up. Rishabh looks at her and tells her that he is sorry. Rishabh moves ahead and locks lips with Prerna. Prerna gets both of her hands around Rishabh and they are lost in a world of their own. Rishabh moves his hands up Prerna's back and unties her hair. Prerna kisses him even harder.Rishabh holds her face and snogs all the way. he digs both his hands into her hair and starts straightening her hair slowly. Prerna is no condition to talk..she holds Rishabh tighter..
Rishabh turns around and slams Prerna on to the wall. He pushes her onto himself and kisses her jaw, going on to the neck and then to her shoulders..Prerna pulls Rishabh away from herself and looks into his eyes with full passion..
To be contd..
She holds him tight and then tells him angrily-"Sorry wont do!". Rishabh is startled by what she says and asks her what she meanes. Prerna tells him that she has postponed his appointments and meetings for the next 2 days and he will be there with her all the time for the next two days, and she will not hear any excuses this time.
"But Prerna, it is not as easy as you say..!Business cannot be run like this! I have my priorities over there..so many foreign clients are coming over to finalise the deal in the next few days! I just cant leave everything for you!" He whines..
Prerna is shocked by his words and moves away from him in pure disbeleif-"You are not the man I loved, you are not the man I married and had my kid with..you are not Rishabh! Not Rishabh..Not R..ish..abh!" -saying so, Prerna runs away with tears in her eyes.
Rishabh slams the wall with his wrist and damns himself. He gets a call on his cellphone calling him to office urgently.Rishabh tries to explain but the person tells him that it is extremely urgent. Rishabh gets a small tear in his eye as he hangs up and looks in the direction where Prerna ran off. He wipes the tear away and gloomily picks up his coat and leaves for office.
Prerna is extremely upset as she thinks again and again of the things Rishabh said to her. She is unable to control her tears and just collapses on the bed.She keeps waiting for Rishabh in hope that he shall come and cheer her up but he never comes. Prerna goes out and finds a note on the fridge-'Going to office..will be late.Do not wait for me.Good night!R.' Prerna angrily takes off the note and tears it into peices.
Prerna goes to her cupboard, takes some sleeping pills and retires to bed. The next morning, birju comes with breakfast. Prerna asks him about Rishabh and he tells her that he never returned from office. Prerna is shocked. Prerna calls up in the office and finds out that Rishabh has left office a hour ago as well. Prerna starts to panic when she cannot get through to Rishabh's cellphone.
She gets ready quickly and leaves for his office. Rishabh's car is still parked in the office but he is nowhere to be found.Prerna goes to Rishabh's cabin to find the remains of a whole night spent in arguments and business decisions and discussions. There is no trace of Rishabh. Suddenly, Prerna's eyes fall on the church nearby. Something makes her think that Rishabh may be in the church.
As she walks to the church, prerna remembers how she made Rishabh beleive in God and how he used to show utter disbelief in God earlier. Prerna's steps quicken..
Prerna's thoughts turn out to be right- as soon as she enters the church, she sees a man, all worn out, with a slight stubble, sitting in the confession box..exhasuted and tired. There was no mistaking that it was Rishabh. There was no priest to hear out Rishabh's confession. He was moaning to himself for the last one hour. Although it was a crime, Prerna listened to Rishabh's confessions...
Rishabh-"Oh I love her..I love her too much.But I just cant seem to take out time for her. I never wanted her to say what she said to me yesterday.I always wanted to be the man who she has always loved..and the man who always loved her..tell me what do I do? How do I get that love and affection back in our life..show me the path out..tell me what to do..tell me what to do:(((("
Saying so, Rishabh breaks down and cries inside the confession box. Prerna just stands outside and cries as well. Rishabh hears sounds of crying and sniffing and rushes out of the box, tears still streaming down his eyes..
He looks at Prerna, her eyes swollen with a bad night's sleep..but just longing for him to tell her that he loved her."Prerna.." he whispered to her..Prerna kept her hand on his mouth, shaking her head as if telling him not to utter a single more word...
Prerna held Rishabh by his hand and led him out to the car.She took the driver's seat and took him to their farmhouse. Rishabh looked at her wearily. They went inside and Rishabh collapsed on his favorite couch.Prerna sat behind him and hugged him. Both of them could not control their tears. Prerna kept her head on his shoulders and he pressed her face on hers..the both of them kept feeling for the warmth the other gave. Rishabh turned around and encompassed Prerna in his arms.
"Forgive me Prerna..I have been most unfair.." Rishabh sobbed in her arms. "Dont cry..!! Please..let me speak to you, your tears break me down into peices..dont cry..ddd..on..tt" she wailed..
Both of them hugged each other tighter and just kept crying.
Prerna pushed him on to the couch and lay flat on him. She loosend his tie and threw it off..she opened the first few buttons of his shirt and started massaging his shoulders..Rishabh pulled her closer and just kept on telling her how tired he was..
The both of them did not realise when they fell asleep in one another's arms. When Rishabh awoke, Prerna was still sleeping on his chest..Rishabh,with his softest touch, moved some hair from Prerna's forehead and gave her an angelic kiss.He kept playing with her hair till she woke up. They hugged again and Prerna ruffled his hair lovingly..
"dont you worry" she told him-"I have it all fixed up.." Rishabh could not help but give a weak smile to the woman he revered and loved the most.
From the next day, Prerna gave up her leadership for Bajaj textiles and appointed herself as the CEO of the Bajaj empire, with Rishabh continuing as the President and Founder. Rishabh and Prerna became each other's strength and helped their work and their love life, reach unprecedented heights..
Every day was lovely for the Bajajs, every night was heavenly. Every sunrise was what they looked forward to..and every sunset was what they enjoyed..together, for the rest of their lives:)
