THE ROAD TO THE WEDDING
CHAPTER 1: A New Challenge
It had been just a few minutes that arnav and khushi had left the hospital but they had started missing each other already. Arnav couldn't stop himself from calling khushi on her phone.
Arnav: hi love,
Khushi blushing slightly tried to have a conversation with him in such a way that people around her didn't know that it was arnav.
Khushi: Pardon me. may I know who is speaking?
Arnav: your elevated heartbeats.
Khushi felt her heartbeats rise. And she blushed again.
Khushi: oh. So its you. Long time since we met. I really miss you.
Arnav: no. I miss you more.
Khushi: no you don't. I miss you more.
Arnav: ok fine. You miss me more. I am arnav singh raizada and people do miss me a lot.
Said arnav with a devilish smile on his face. Khushi felt her jaw drop. She thought to herself," my god this guy still hasn't let go of his ego has he. Typical ASR."
Khushi: oh. Is that so? Well in that case I dare you not to call me until we get married. Howz that?
Arnav: well don't you think your punishing yourself too much. I know I can live without calling you for the next few days but I don't think you will be able to handle it.
Arnav was really playing with her. He had his wicked smile on his face. He wanted to see how much he could push her. Khushi on the other hand was getting very irritated.
Khushi to herself: that big laad governor. What does he think of himself? If he thinks he can live without talking to me then even I don't need to talk to him. Hey devi maiyya. This is going to be a lot tougher than anything i have done but please give me the strength to show this laad governor that I am not that weak.
Khushi then spoke out to arnav.
Khushi: fine its done then. I wont call you nor will you call me until our marriage. Deal?
Khushi felt happy as she had gotten no response. She knew that she had pulled off his bluff. There was no way arnav would agree to this.
Arnav: fine khushi kumara gupta. It's a deal.
Khushi dropped her jaw again. Because of him she was already staying away from him. His stupid idea that she should return to gupta house. Why couldn't her ceremonies and marriage take place while she stayed at the raizada mansion itself as she was already married to him? And now adding fuel to fire arnav was making her to agree to not call each other too.
Khushi had small tears in the corner of her eyes as she knew she would not be able to kill time without talking to him,but she agreed,
Khushi: alright its fine by me. we wont talk till everything is over.
said khushi trying to keep her voice natural even though she felt really sad.
Arnav:ok. Bye beautiful.
And she kept the phone down.
Arnav too kept the phone down. But he wasn't sad at all. He had a smile on his face because he new exactly what he was doing. This was one challenge he could easily win.
Khushi walked into her home with her family members. She was very depressed. Her buaji noticed this and said
Buaji: oh Sanka Devi,I know that you love him a lot but don't feel so sad that you have to stay with us.
And then buaji started laughing.
Khushi: buaji its not like that.
And she blushed and ran into her room and locked herself in. she then went and fell on her bed. And she became lost in arnav's thoughts.
She started to fight with herself.
khushi: i miss him already.
then an idea struck her.
Khushi: why not call him and pretend to be buaji? I can easily imitate her and that laad governor will not even notice.
She marveled at her brilliant plan. How will she lose the bet if arnav doesn't know that he won.
Khushi: ha. if he is asr, then I am his wife. He will not know that it was me.
She looked outside to see that it had gotten dark outside. She went and had dinner with the gupta's and returned knowing that everyone had slept. Now was the time to enforce her plan. She would call arnav pretending to be buaji asking him whether the marriage dates had been finalized. She got very excited and said" now that laad governor will know what happens when he messes with khushi kumara gupta who is quickly going to become mrs. Arnav singh raizada."
She dialed his number and the phone started to ring. But it wasn't just ringing, it was actually ringing in her house, in her room.she went into her room and saw the phone on her bed. a note attached with it.
arnav: see i am leaving my phone here as a mark that i wont call you.
Khushi: aargh!!! That laad governor knew that I know only his mobile number and he has so much ego that he came and kept his phone in my house and went? He is truly a raakshas. He wont call me and now I literally cant call him. Fine if he doesn't want me to disturb him I wont.
Even though she tried to remain positive she was feeling very very sad that arnav would do all this to just win a challenge. She had tears in her eyes as her heart began longing for him. She needed him. She wanted him near her. And then her eyes flooded with tears. She felt alone. she started to weep. after a while she came to her senses and realised that she had to change before she slept.
She then went to her cupboard to take out her clothes to change. all she could think about was arnav. she was feeling sad as she felt that the challenge was more important to arnav than her.She opened the cupboard,
And khushi screamed.
CHAPTER 2: I Didn't loose.
There sitting inside the cupboard was Arnav Singh Raizada who had a smile on his face.
Khushi had gotten so scared that she had screamed. Arnav quickly kissed her cheek and still sitting inside the cupboard closed the cupboard doors as he heard all the gupta's awaken and rush to her room.
Buaji: areh oh sanka devi. What happened? Why are you screaming? Is everything all right?
Khushi had blushed again when he kissed her. She didn't know when she'll get used to her husband. And now she returned to her senses when buaji and garima had concern etched on their faces. She knew she couldn't tell them she saw arnav.
Khushi: nothing buaji I just saw a dirty big cockroach and I got scared.
She put a lot of emphasis on cockroach as she wanted her arnav to hear her.
Garima: you really are a crazy child. You are scared so much of a cockroach and we thought something bad had happened.
Buaji: fine if you are so scared by insects you go and sleep in my room and I'll sleep here.
Khushi panicked and said,
Khushi: areh no no no buaji. I cant let you sleep here. What if you get bitten
And she thought to herself "I cant let the cockroach near anyone else.I need it"
Buaji: what do you mean you need it?
Khushi: no no what I meant was I'll deal with it.
Buaji: no bitiya. I'll handle it. Did you see it in the cupboard? Is that why your clothes are in the ground?
Khushi: no no no no no. buaji you go and sleep and take care of you health.
(cockroach ki chatni bane ya na bane hamari zaroor banegi).
Buaji was completely confused with what khushi was saying and behaving. Well khushi had always been the crazy one. And she returned along with garima to their respective rooms. As soon as they left khushi bolted the door. She could feel her heartbeats increasing again. Arnav slowly opened the cupboard and got out of it. He was looking at khushi who was shyly looking at anything other than arnav. He started walking towards her. The distance between them was reducing until he cornered her.
Arnav: Hi Gorgeous.
Khushi blushed and looked at his shoes, then his tie, then finally looked into those deep eyes. Arnav had cornered her against a wall.
Arnav: don't think that you won just because I am here.
Khushi was confused. Oh god was he talking about that useless challenge again.
Khushi: you lost. You said that you will not talk to me until we are married.
Arnav: but khushi I said that I wont call you. I didn't say anything about seeing you, about hugging you(And he gave her a hug) or about kissing you(and he pecked on her cheeks)
Khushi was now becoming crimson red.
Khushi: you really are a mean business man.
Arnav: no. I am just the best in what I do. I am arnav singh raizada and I can crack any deal in this earth.
Khushi: fine don't show off.
Arnav: but I was very amused at your silly plan of calling me. and what was that you were calling me? laad governor, raakshas and dirty cockroach?
Khushi: yes you are all those things.
Arnav: oh is that so? fine. I had come all this way to see you but since you think so badly of me I don't think you'll want to spend the rest of your time with me. and here I had planned the whole night in my head. Guess that was a waste of time. Fine I shall leave.
But khushi was thinking" oh no. what have I done. I don't want you to leave you laad governor. I wont let you leave. "
Khushi: what do you think of yourself? You cant come and go whenever you please. You came here on your wish but you won't leave here until I say so.
Arnav: All right. Watch me.
Arnav turned to leave. Then all of a sudden khushi caught his collar and pulled him towards her and then kissed him on his lips. Arnav was now shocked. This he had not expected from his cute jalebi gal. Then arnav leant in and gave her the best kiss anyone could ever get. When they broke away from each other they were panting slightly due to the lack of oxygen. They were really exhausted after their moment of passion. Khushi blushed the darkest shade of red and this time arnav too turned slightly red. Both looked at each others eyes and were lost in thought. Then arnav said,
Arnav: you really can make a unrefusable offer. You are really my wife aren't you?
Arnav: come with me
Arnav: it's a surprise.
Khushi: fine wait outside while I change and come.
Khushi saw how arnav had come in. it was through the window. And he was going out by the window.
Arnav: please keep a stool near the window next time. It'll be easier coming in.
Khushi smiled and nodded agreeing to arnav. She couldn't believe that he'd actually do all this just to be with her. Now she understood as to why he agreed her to stay at gupta's. it was because arnav knew that he could easily see her whenever he wanted to.
She wanted to dress for arnav today.as he had done soo much for her, even she wanted to do something for him.
She got dressed in red because arnav loved that colour and let her hair loose.
She then went outside and froze as to what she saw. She felt her jaw drop.
Khushi: You cant be serious. Please tell me that you are joking.
CHAPTER 3: Runaway bride
Khushi was staring at arnav in disbelief. She couldn't believe her eyes. She closed her eyes, rubbed them and again opened them hoping this was all a dream. But no.
There he was. Arnav Singh Raizada sitting atop one of the most beautiful white horses in existance with a mischievous smirk on his face.
Khushi: what the!!!
Arnav smiled looking at the expression on her face. he was happy to see the disbelief spread on her face.
Arnav: well don't just stand there. We have a date and you are wasting time standing so far away from me. come on get on.
Khushi: but I am wearing a saree. How do you expect me to climb up.
Arnav: when will you stop being a damsel in distress? Humph' that's why you need men in this world.
Khushi felt her jaw drop. She scowled at him.
Arnav: come here I'll pull you up.
He took her by her hand and pulled her up and made her sit sideways on the horse.
Khushi: where the hell did you get such a weird idea?
Arnav: you always dreamt that your husband would be a prince who would come on a horse and take you away.
Khushi: but I hadn't told that to you.
Arnav: oh come on. Cant I even ask your jiji about all the silly stuff you have dreamt about your marriage? So today I want to fulfill that part of your wish. Lets go toofaan(horse's name)
And the horse started to gallop. Khushi was blushing profusely. she couldn't look at arnav due to the fact that she was blushing so much.
Khushi (thinking): hey devi maiyya, if before marriage I am feeling like this, I wonder what is going to happen after we get married and share the same room.
They were getting a lot of looks from the people walking on the road and some of them were giggling looking at them. After all delhi-ites didn't sleep that early. Khushi couldn't bear all this and hid her head on arnav's chest.
Arnav: oh now I get why you are dressed in red today.
Khushi was feeling embarrassed because she didn't want to let him know that she was dressed in red saree just for him. but then arnav said
Arnav: you are wearing red so that you can hide the fact that you blush too much, my cute and yummy tomato.
And then khushi did turn so red that she literally looked like a tomato. And she smiled knowing that arnav was playing with her. After some time they came to a stop.it was a small on the edge of the city.
Arnav dismounted his horse and helped khushi get down from the horse as well.
Arnav: you can leave toohfaan. I'll call you later.
And the horse left.
Khushi: that's a well trained horse. Where did you get it and where are we arnavji?
Arnav: don't be afraid. This is my land. I raise some horses here along with a huge nursery for taking care of plants. But don't worry. Today nothing will disturb us.
Arnav led her a bit forward she was seriously not dressed for this.
Khushi: you should have told me where we were coming. I would have dressed accordingly.
Arnav: told you and spoilt the chance for you to show off your beauty? Come on if you didn't I will just become bored of you.you have to be beautiful every second of the day to keep Arnav Singh Raizada interested in you.
Khushi felt very irritated. She pulled her hand from arnav's grasp and she turned away from him in anger.
Arnav was smiling now. Man it was so easy to get her angry. And she looked really cute when she did. He went close to her and hugged her from the back. He went close to her ears and said,
Arnav: I wanted you to wear high heels so that when we reach here you would need my help. Its just another excuse to touch you sweety.
And that had done it. Khushi turned the darkest shade of red. Oh she was going to get back at him she thought.
Arnav: and by the way. Did you know that you look soo darn cute when you get angry.
Saying this he kissed her on her cheek. He could feel the blood rushing to her cheeks. Her cheeks could cook food.
Then arnav took her hand and led her to a tent in front of which there was a single recliner placed slong with a small mat on the groung. They first sat down on the mat.
Arnav: since I know that you have a ridiculously large appetite and I know for a fact that you didn't eat dinner properly thinking about me, I have arrange for some food from a dhaba.
Khushi smiled in delight. She really was hungry as she hadn't eaten thinking abiut arnav the whole time during dinner. They ate in silence looking at each other's eyes and were lost in thoughts about each other. After they finished eating, arnav got up and led khushi to the recliner. He sat first and then asked khushi to sit on top of him. She looked shyly away.
Khushi: are you crazy? I cant do that.
And started to walk away but now arnav caught her hand and pulled her to him with all his might. Khushi fell on top of arnav. Arnav then made her a bti more comfortable and said,
Arnav: I told you one day that I would count the stars with you. Today I want to fulfill that as well. Both gazed at the stars and were relishing each other's presence in the silence.
Arnav: our marriage has been fixed after 3 days buaji.
He said with a reference to buaji as she was going to pretend to call him as buaji.
Khushi: alright fine. You win.
Arnav: 3 days and then you'll be my wife and I wont let you out of my eyesight.
Khushi:3 days? So late?
Khushi : I mean so early. O thought I can enjoy a bit more quality alone time at home.
Arnav smiled. He knew what she actually meant.
Arnav: you have your mehendi tomorrow. You'll finally get ASR written on your hands by choice. I really like all my property have my name on it.
Said arnav with a mischievous smile onn his face.
Khushi: stop dreaming. I'll ask her to write k on my hand. I wont write A.
Arnav: you don't have a choice my juicy tomato.
And khushi blushed again.
Arnav: its getting late. I should leave you home and return. If di finds out I am missing she'll raise hell at home.
Khushi: on the horse again?
Arnav: no my car. I had left it here when I came to pick toohfaan.
They took the car and drove to gupta house.
Khushi had to warn arnav several times to keep his eyes on the road as he was staring at khushi the entire time.
When he dropped her off, he held her.
Arnav:before I say goodnight I want you to do me a favour.
Khushi: what is it?
Arnav: don't get scared. All you have to do is eat a sugarfree jalebi. The one I tell you to eat.
Khushi thought to herself that it cant be that simple. There was something funny going on in that head of his.
Khushi: fine. I'll eat it.
Arnav took out a small box in which there was only one jalebi.
Arnav: all you have to do is eat this.
Khushi: fine. Anything else?
Arnav: and you cat use your hands to touch this jalebi. I'll feed it directly to your mouth.
Khushi:oh that's it.
Taking a sigh of relief.
Then arnav took the jalebi and placed half of it inside his mouth.
Arnav: what are you waiting for. eat this jalebi.
Khushi blushed and was feeling so cheated.
Khushi to herself: hey devi maiyya what the hell did I agree to?
She had kissed arnav before. But that was in the moment. This was deliberate. She felt her blood rushing to her cheeks as she closed the distance between herself and arnav. Arnav saw her comin closer and closer. She was so close that he could feel her breath on his face. She came closer and closer until there was no distance between their lips and broke that jalebi. They didn't realize when that jalebi had been swallowed by both of them and this had turned into a deep passionate kiss. Both didn't want to withdraw. They wanted the moment last forever and ever. They were in a tight embrace. Finally what seemed like a millennia they broke apart panting and gasping for air. Khushi and arnav both looked shyly away. Then arnav turned towards khushi,
Arnav: so khushi kumari gupta. Ready to permanently become khushi singh raizada in a few days?
Khushi turned and actually raised her voice and replied,
Khushi: NO I DON'T WANT THAT NAME.
Arnav felt his heart drop 10 miles under the earth.
CHAPTER 4: NAMES & SHOCKS
Arnav looked at her shocked. He didn't know what she meant.
Khushi: oh my cute laad governor, I was just thinking about something. But promise me that you wont laugh.
Arnav: I promise that I wont laugh. Tell me why don't you want to share my name?
Khushi: well I was thinking since we are getting married and I'll have to reapply forms for change of name in my driving license etc, I want to be named as Khushi Arnav Singh Raizada.
Arnav was shocked. He hadn't expected this.
Arnav: but why?
Khushi: because even when you are far away you'll still be with me, in my name, in my soul.
Arnav had little tears in his eyes. He went forward and gave khushi a very tight hug and kissed her on her fore head. He was touched by her love. Even after all that had happened between them, she loved him so much that she wanted her and his name together.
Arnav: I am so sorry khushi. You love me so much and I hurt you for so long. I am so sorry. I swear I'll never hurt you again nor will I let tears come into those beautiful eyes of yours. I----
And he stopped. This was because khushi had leaned in and kissed him to stop him from reliving the past.
Khushi: that's a handy technique for me I guess. Whenever I have to make you listen to me all I have to do is kiss you huh?
Arnav: correction. Kiss me and turn red.
Khushi blushed. Arnav saw his watch and jumped. It was 3 am and if di found out about his absence she would raise hell. He had to return home. But the thought of leaving khushi seemed impossible.
Arnav: fine I have got to go and you also need some sleep.
Khushi: ya you are right.
But neither of them moved an inch.
Arnav: I wont be able to leave until you go in khushi.
Khushi: as though its that easy for me.
After some time khushi finally started to return back to her house. Her eyes fixed at arnav in the car.khushi had to literally fight with herself to close the door and turn her back towards it to stop the idea of running after arnav.
Arnav finally started his car and left to RM.
Both spent the night thinking about each other and all the moments they had that very night.
Next day finally came. Arnav had gotten ready. He had made up his mind to gatecrash khushi's mehendi. But that would be so diificult as everyone now knew what nk had done and would be suspicious.
Arnav: stupid nk. Ruined everything. But I am asr. I can surely think of better way to meet khushi.
The mehendi was going to take place again in the raizada mansion because arnav didn't want his di to travel too much in her condition. The gupta's had reached the raizada mansion and were greeted by Anjali and nani. Khushi was looking to spot arnav but as this was a full ladies event he was banned from the
Anjali: arnav is really fussy. But now he has someone else to fuss over. Am I right khushi?
Khushi blushed and looked away embarrassed. They took her and her family to the main hallway and sat down with their other relatives.
Arnav: she would have already reached here. Oh god this is such a big torture. Not being able to see her even though she is just a few meters from here.
Akash: bhai, thinking of some excuse too go there huh?
Arnav: yes. Oh. I mean no.
Akash smiled and put a hand to arnav's shoulder.
Akash: don't worry bhai. Even on payal's mehendi I felt exactly like this.
NK: don't worry nannav. We'll get you there. What say?
Arnav then got a call.
Anjali received a call from her chotey.
Anjali: the answer is still no chotey. You cant come here.
Aranv: di I know that already. Don't add fuel to fire. By the way that's not why I called. I got a call from inspector alok. Shyam was caught sometime back. Now he needs a written statement from khushi as well. He is sending a few men to take it as I have asked him to send them here to take her statement as I didn't want the mehendi rasam to be disturbed.
Anjali:fine chotey. We'll receive them and ask khushi to give her statement to them.
Arnav: there is one inspector and two constables. Their names are amar, akbar and Anthony.
Anjali: ha this reminds me of that movie we saw with mom na?
Arnav: yes this world is full of crazy people di. All weird stuff happens here. Anyway I have something to discuss with akash so I am keeping the phone down.
Anjali: ok chotey. Enjoy your time not being able to see khushi.
After a while a police jeep came to arnav's house. They had come to take khushi's statement, as they had to keep shyam behind bars for many years.
They went in and met Anjali.
Inspector amar: goodafternoon ma'am. ma'am we are here to take mrs. Raizada's statement. I hope arnav sir has already informed you the details.
Anjali: yes he did.
Anjali looked over at khushi and said,
Anjali: khushiji please give your statement to these police officers.
Khushi: fine. But cant arnavji be here too. He was a witness too.
Anjali: I really have to give you credit khushi. You really want to do anything to meet arnav.
Khushi smiled like a naughty child caught while doing mischief.
Amar: no ma'am we need to take your statement alone. So we know that there is no pressure from anyone on your statement.
Anjali then led them to a room nearby and asked them to do their work there.
Amar: you two, stand guard outside. I'll take her interview. Do you have the necessary papers?
Akbar: yes sir. We have it in the jeep.
Anthony. Wait here sir. I'll go get them.
Amar: ma'am, please sit down. He went and closed the door.
Amar: you people with money think you can do whatever you want. That arnav singh raizada is a moron. Cant you take two minutes of your life and come down to the police station and give your statement. Ordering us to come here like we are a bunch of servants.
Khushi got angry. No one could dare to speak about her arnav like that.
Khushi: you shut up. you have no right to insult my husband. You are here for your work. Do that and begone. You have no right to talk about people you don't know.
Amar: ya right. Whats there to know about a selfish self centered man.
Khushi got up from the chair.
Khushi: even though you are a police officer it is your duty to respect others. Not to disrespect them. She turned to exit from the door. She would give her statement to alok itself. Not to this goon who didn't know to behave.
Suddenly amar caught her hand and pulled her towards him.
Amar: until my job is finished your not going anywhere.
Khushi stared at him in disbelief. This guy was crazy.
Khushi: let me go or I'll shout.
Amar: just answer my one question.
Khushi: let me go.
Amar: why did insulting asr hurt you so much my lovely tomato?
Khushi stopped. She was shocked as she saw amar take his cap and rest of the makeup off. There in front of her was arnav singh raizada.
Arnav: surprise gorgeous.
Khushi's jaw dropped. She couldn't believe her eyes
Khushi: if this is you, who are the other two?
Arnav: akash and nk.
Khushi; you did all this just to see me?
Arnav: obviously. I love you and I know that I wont be able to sleep at night without seeing you in the day.
Khushi blushed again.
Khushi: you really are a raakshas. You trouble me sooo much. I hate you.
Khushi: and I should have known. Amar Akbar Anthony is one of my fav movies.
Arnav smiled. She was right. He loved troubling her. He loved everything about her.
Arnav:so beautiful where is my reward? Why don't you show me your mehendi?
Khushi: no I cant. Its supposed to be a bad omen.
Arnav: oh my god. I am going to kill the guy who made all this omen crap. People believe in all kinds of non sense. Now i____
And he stopped as khushi had kissed him which lasted for a long time as neither would let go. All else didn't matter to them. That kiss was the only thing they cared about.
Finally khushi withdrew.
Khushi: you sure talk too much. cease the second my friend. Don't waste time talking.
Saying so she ran towards the door. Just then akbar and Anthony came in.
Akash: so is your session over?
Khushi was still blushing.
NK: how was the idea khushiji? Worked like a charm didn't it?
Khushi: thanks a lot for helping arnavji. I really wanted to meet him today.
Akash: yes bhabhi, we understand.
And nk winked at khushi. Secret.
Khushi then ran out of the room as she couldn't stop blushing.
Arnav: lets leave before Anjali di comes to know about us.
They had reached the door when
Anjali: stop right there.
All three turned to face her.
Anjali: so I just got off the phone with alok and he says he doesn't even know about you three.
Then she went near amar caught him by the ear and said,
Anjali: why chotey. Thinking that you can outsmart us huh. Wow look at the men of this house. All are so mischievous. Uniting and causing havoc. All of you go to your rooms, change and meet us for lunch.
All three of them replied in unison: yes di.
After a while they had changed and come down.
Arnav went and sat near khushi. She still couldn't look at him feeling embarrassed at their last encounter.
Arnav: oh come on. Grow up you little baby. You cant turn red all the time.
Khushi scowled at him.
They ate lunch looking into each others eyes. They completely ignored the rest of the people eating at the table who were giggling looking at how much in love these two were in.
While leaving the table arnav went close to her ear and whispered.
Arnav: see you tonight tomato.
Khushi: we'll see'
CHAPTER 5: ACCIDENT
It had been over seven hours since the gupta's and khushi had returned home. Khushi was arnav sick. They were supposed to meet at night.but khushi heard i=on the news that there was going to be heavy rainfall that night.
She called arnav and asked him not to come. She knew that he wouldn't care about the weather and still try to come but she made up an excuse that she was really tired and would be sleeping with her parents that day. So it would be better if he doesn't come to which arnav had grudgingly agreed.
Khushi: me and my big mouth. I should have known. Those useless people at the news cant even get one fact right. It isn't raining one bit. Hey devi maiyya, I could have been in arnav's arms had it not been for my stupidity and the stupid news.
Buaji: areh oh sanka devi. In which world are you lost.
Khushi: what buaji? What have I done now?
Buaji: didn't I tell you to close all the windows of the house.it might rain heavily today. So close all windows and come and eat dinner with the rest of us. Its already 10 in the night.
Khushi: I'll close them when it starts raining buaji.
Khushi had left her window open in hope. But she knew that arnav wont be coming.
Buaji: what if it starts in the middle of the night and you will fall asleep.nothing doing. Close the windows and come to the table quickly.
Khushi finally went to close the window and then had joined the guptas for dinner.
Khushi to herself: oh devi maiyya. I should stop thinking about him. Ok from now on I wont think about him.
Buaji: see khushi I made your favourite jalebi. Wont you have some?
Khushi: yes why not. She took some and started to take a bite. Then another. She didn't like the jalebi.
Khushi to herself: this isn't good. I want to have the one that arnavjii bought for me. the one that I tasted of his lips, those soft and yummy lips'ahh KHUSHI KUMARI GUPTA. You just told yourself to not think about him. That useless laad governor. He ruined jalebi for me. MY FAVOURITE SWEET. it's the truth he deserves to be a raakshas. A dirty cockroach with sweet juicy lips, aaah' not again. Stop it stop it stop it.Cant you think of anything else? What about his smell. Oh that smell which I cant let myself forget. BUT ITS STILL GOT TO DO WITH ARNAV.stop thinking about him.
Buaji brought her back to reality.
Buaji:oh sanka devi. You are getting lost in your thoughts again. You go and sleep. Tomorrow is a big day for you.
Khushi looked at the watch. It was close to 11.30 in the night.
Khushi: oh god. Its already 11.30 and I am not even slightly sleepy. Its because of that laad governor. He keeps coming into my thoughts. Oh I'll make sure he pays for this. I am going to take my revenge very soon on him. Devi maiyya ki kasam. I'll make him pay.
She went to her room and changed. After that she went and locked the door and came back to sleep. She switched off the lights. As soon as she did so, her attention was pulled by the shadow on the windows. It was a hooded figure and it looked like it had a hunched back. Then she remembered inspector alok telling her that shyam used to spy on her family for a few months before he came to meet them. She got scared. She spun around to find her phone. She had to call arnav right away. She called him but his phone was busy.the shadow then slowly came closer and closer and finally opened the window. Khushi dropped her phone in fear. But she was determined to beat shyam. She quickly searched and found a stick. She was arnav's wife. She wouldn't go down quietly now could she. She saw the figure enter from the window. Khushi went near him silently so as to surprise him with the attack. The man let some cloth fall on the ground. He had lost the hood. Khushi was now close enough to strike. With all the energy she could muster she swung the stick and hit the man on his head and he fell groaning with displeasure. With all her strength and force she started hitting the man on the ground again and again until
Arnav: khushi are you mad. What the hell do you think your doing? Stop beating me up.
Khushi stopped. In shock she dropped the stick that she was holding.
Khushi: WHAT THE' is it you arnav?
Arnav: who the hell do you think is crazy enough to even come close to this house at this time of the night. When there is a crazy witch with a stick in this house ready to hit anything that moves
Khushi went and fumbled to switch on the lights. Finally she managed to find the switches and switched on the bulb.when she turned she saw arnav was still sitting on the ground and was catching his head.
Khushi ran to him and asked him if he was ok.
Arnav: how the hell can I be ok after all that?
Khushi: I am sorry. I thought you were an intruder.
Arnav: didn't I tell you that I will meet you tonight?
Khushi: but I called you asking you not to come.
Arnav: you sounded sad over the phone so I wanted to know why you were sad.
Khushi looked shoked. She couldn't still believe that she had hit arnav so badly.
Khushi: I am terribly sorry. I didn't mean to hit you. You crazy laad governor you should have told me that you were coming.
Arnav: what have I gotten myself into?
Khushi helped arnav off the floor and looked at his injuries closer.
Khushi: I think I have the perfect medicine.
Arnav: what is it?
Khushi then started kiss ing all the spots on arnavs hands that had gotten red marks from the stick beating. She kissed his hands and then she gave a deep kiss on his head.
Khushi: how does it feel now?
Arnav: now that medicine I like. I think you hit me on my lips too.
Khushi: oh I am not falling for that.
Arnav: oh come on. I can see it in your eyes.
Khushi: what can you see?
Arnav: the hunger for a kiss with me.
Khushi blushed and turned away.
Arnav: oh get used to it khushi arnav singh raizada. I can kiss you whenever I want to.
Khushi: no you cant. I wont let you.
Arnav advanced on khushi, backing her to a wall. He closed the distance between them. He was going to kiss her, khen khushi used her hand and turned arnav's face away while blushing crimson red. Arnav the turned to look at her again. He stopped advancing. Arnav had an angered look on his face. He turned and headed towards the window.
Khushi: where are you going arnavji?
But without a backward glance he picked up his coat and jumped out of the window, sat in his suv and left.
Khushi: humph. What a show off. You don't kiss him once and he acts like an angry lion being refused food. Hey devi maiyya.
Khushi then slept but she was woken up by her cell phone ringing. It was 6 in the morning. She saw that it was Anjali who was calling. She picked up,
Anjali sounded close to tears and was sounding very worried.
Anjali: khushi ji come to the raizada mansion at once.
Khushi: why anjaliji? What happened?
Anjali: arnav got hit on his head badly yesterday and now he has lost consciousness. We have already called a doctor. But I am getting very worried. Please come here as soon as possible.
Khushi was shocked. It felt as though no blood was flowing in her body. She had turned white in fear. She didn't realize that she had hit arnav so badly. She got ready and left for the raizada mansion.
When she reached she went to arna's room to see that Anjali, akash and nk were standing at the gateway to arnav's room. They all looked white with fear. Khushi went and asked
Khushi: anjaliji how is he now?
Anjali: khushi, arnav is fine now. He is out in the garden by the pool side. But there is soe bad news.
Anjali now had tears in her eyes.she had started to cry as she couldn't hold back her tears.
Anjali: please don't panic to what I am about to tell you.
Khushi: please don't scare me anjaliji. Tell me what happened to him. Don't hide anything from me.
Anjali: he has lost his memory for a year. He doesn't remember anything that happened in that one year. He doesn't know about akash's marriage and he has forgotten all about you.
Khushi couldn't move. She was shocked. She fell on the floor and started crying. Tears flooded her eyes. No she could not accept this. There was no way she arnav would forget about her. She ran into his room. She saw him watering his plants.
She ran towards him caught him by his collar and started shaking him,
Khushi: look into my eyes and tell me that you don't remember me. Tell me that you don't remember our time together. TELL ME DAMN IT.
Arnav was shocked.
He took her hands from his collar and threw her back slightly.
Arnav: who the hell are you and what the hell are you doing in my room. Get out. I don't know who you are lady.
CHAPTER 6: Di's revenge
Khushi was shocked. She started crying openly and loudly and fell on the floor. She had lost the love of her life. She couldn't take it.
arnav: are you ok miss?
khushi started crying loudly now. as though a bully had taken her chocolates in school.
Arnav dropped the water sprinkler and went near khushi and picked her up.
Arnav: di come here.
Anjali, akash and nk walked in. they were silently smiling for some reason.
Arnav: di its not funny anymore. she'll kill us all soon.
Khushi looked up at him.
Arnav then hugged khushi with all his might. And started to laugh.
Arnav:oh my lovely tomato, have you forgotten that its april 1st today?
Khushi stopped crying. She looked at arnav in disbelief. Was he relating to april fools day?
Arnav just kissed her on her forhead.
Khushi took her hands back and just started punching arnav. Every inch she could reach.
Khushi: how dare you joke like this. You know how scared I was. I thought I lost you. Take this and this and that and this.
She was still punching him and he was smirking.
Arnav: ow khushi stop.its hurting.
Khushi: no I wont mr.raizada. you deserve to be hit. How can you put me through this much pain?(still punching)
Arnav took her into his arms to try and calm her down.
Arnav: it was just a prank khushi. It was all di's idea.
Khushi: Anjali di? Why?
Anjali: oh come on khushi. I wasn't going to let you get off that easy after hitting chotey that badly. I wanted my revenge too you know.
Arnav: and the only reason I agreed to be a part of it was because you slapped me last night,tomato.
Anjali,akash and nk left to give some privacy for the love birds.
Khushi: oh I hate you sooo much. you trouble me soo much. I hate you I hate you I hate you. I
Arnav leaned in and shut her up by giving her a small kiss on her cheeks.
Arnav: finally khushi kumara gupta shut up. All thanks to me. and you look so cute when you say I hate you. did you know?
Khushi blushed again.
Arnav: you have won a gold mine of a husband you know. Humph. You are really lucky to have me.
Khushi pulled arnav by his collar and gave him a kiss on his lips, but this kiss was like no other.their tounges twirled with each other, fought with each other and explored each other. It was a blissful oblivion, like heaven on earth. They finally broke apart exhausted.
Arnav: correction. I think I am the lucky one to get you, my love.
Khushi giggled as she spotted some of her lipstick on his lips. She used her finger to wipe them away.
Arnav: strawberry huh? Yum'
Now khushi couldn't stop turning dark red. She hadn't expected arnav to state her lipstick flavor outright. She turned shyly away from arnav embarrassed.
Arnav went and hugged her from the back.
Arnav: don't worry tomato. I cant forget something that is a part of my soul. I really love you dear.
And there both stood for about 15 mins. Finally khushi declared that she had to return home before her family got up and started searching for her. Arnav decided to drop her home.
It was evening. Her haldi had taken place while arnav sat and watched her from her window without anyone's notice. He hadn't left after dropping her off. how could he?
After the ceremony was complete, she went to her room and locked the door and arnav climed into her room.
Khushi: I see you haven't left.
Arnav: I had to laugh at you in all this haldi right, how could I leave?
And he smirked. Khushi got irritated from him.
Khushi: go from here. I am still mad at you.
Arnav: mad at me. you should be so grateful that I am surprised that you aren't kissing my feet.
Khushi's jaw dropped.
Khushi: grateful? Ha. what a joke? After troubling me so much you expect me to kisss your feet eh?
Arnav: and what about the fact that I take so much pains to meet you every night. And what do you do? Wait like a chiken as girls really cant match as to what we boys can do.
Khushi: ha. As if you don't come here for your own need. You are talking as though you come here to make some donation and don't take anything in return. You laad governor.
Arnav: as though you don't enjoy "giving" tomato?
Khushi's cheeks flushed. He was right. She enjoyed his visits and other stuff he used to do especially for her.
Arnav: see. I told you. We boys are way better. All girls do is receive.
Khushi scowled at him.
Arnav: anyway I've recharged my khushi need, so I'd better get home as my haldi will also start sometime in the afternoon.
Khushi leaned forward to kiss arnav but arnav just dodged and kissed her cheeks instead.
Arnav: humph since you think we boys want only kiss I proved you wrong. I wont kiss you till our marriage.
He turned and left. Khushi swore badly.
Khushi: you wait mr.arnav singh raizada. I will definitely get back at you. Revenge will be sweet.
CHAPTER 7:Khushi Joy Singh
It had been just minutes since arnav had left khushi to return home. But khushi was deep in thougth. She had to go to arnav's house. How dare he say that only boys can do all this stuff? And how dare he say that he wont kiss her till their marriage? Why is he the one who always decides. That useless laad governor. What does he think of himself? That male chauvinistic pig.
Khushi: I'll definitely go there. I'll show him what we women can do. But I definitely cant go there as myself because if I get caught buaji and ma will skin me alive. I'll have to disguise myself. But how?
She kept thinking as the ideas she got were either impossible or too damn ridiculous. Then an idea hit her. Why not dress up like a sardarji and go. That way she can hide her long hair and she can pretend to be one of arnav's clients who has to talk to arnav regarding some business deal. Because she cant dress like a girl as people will get suspicious if a girl wants to meet arnav alone. So she cant dress like a girl. She'll have to dress up like a sardar. There was no other go.
Khush: hey devi maiyya, my idea is brilliant but I don't know how to make a sardar type turban. How do I do that?
Then it struck her.
Khushi: areh why not take happyji's help?
She went to the garage and met happyji, and she told him to help her get dressed as a sardar and told him why.
Happyji: oh worry not puttar. My wife is a make up artist. She helps children in fancy dress competition and is a very good beautician as well. We'll definitely help you. Don't worry. When she is done , even you wont be able to recognize yourself.
Saying this he led khushi to his wife and narrated her khushi's need. She was glad to help khushi. She first tied khushi's hair in a perfect knot. Then put a turban on her. Then came the false mustache and beard. then she gave khushi a body suit. Which will help her look fat and man like. She then gave her a shirt, coat and trousers and a tie to appear formal. Now she took khushi and made her stand infront of a mirror. Khushi's jaw dropped. If she hadn't known that it was her in the reflection she would have refused to believe it. The coat did a very good job of covering her mehendi. And now to cover her hands completely, she gave khushi a pair of human gloves. So that noone's eye can fall on her mehendi and her long nails are also hidden from everyone else. This was the perfect makeup. She was confident that none will recognize her. It was virtually impossible. She now called a taxi service to get dropped at raizada mansion. She thanked happyji and her wife for all their help and told that she'll return their costume as soon as she returned.
Happyji: don't worry about that puttar. Best of luck.
Khushi: thanks happyji. I have one last favour to ask of you.
Happyji: sure behen. Anything for you.
At the raizada mansion the haldi ceremony was going on great according to and her chotey who was highly irritated and making faces was getting coated with haldi.
Arnav: di is all this necessary? This is getting to my nerves.
Anjali: yes its necessary. After haldi you'll look very fair and handsome. Khushiji will die looking at you.
Arnav looked away embarrassed as all the ladies there started giggling. He was thinking about khushi when he was interrupted by a phone call. It was an unknown number.
Stranger: hello, is this mr. arnav singh raizada?
Arnav: yes who is this?
Stranger: I am joy singh. The new CEO of singhania industries. Mr singhania has asked me to meet you regarding the last proposal you sent them immediately.
Arnav: fine. Come to my house. We'll discuss everything here. And I hope you know me well. I don't like my time go waste. Be to the point and don't waste my time with other formalities.
He kept the phone down. Aah. Come on. Cant he live in peace. But he knew that he loved work.atleast it kept him distracted from the horrible torture that his di was doing to him. Hindu marriage. Huge torture.
Arnav: cant people just get married then and there. Who made up all this fuss about haldi,engagement and all other nonsense rasams. Just to delay me from khushi's presence. And to top it all khushi had time to dream about all this.
Arnav knew khushi was crazy.
Arnav: So cant help it I guess.
Khushi: thanks for talking to him happyji. I wont forget this.
She had asked happyji to talk to arnav because whenever she talked to arnav she used to loose control and blabber non sense to him. And now she got a clear shot that arnav didn't suspect anything.
Her taxi had come to take her.
She sat in it and left to raizada mansion.
Arnav: akash, there is a mister joy singh on his way here to meet me. its something related to work. I guess they want to talk about the quotations. But this house is full of people. Where do I meet him?
Akash: what bhai. Even today you want to work? You could have skipped it today atleast.
Arnav: akash you don't understand. I need a distraction from all this madness di is causing. And if work is that source, so be it. I would have gone to meet khushi but di hardly lets me out of her sight. There is always some rasam or the other.
Akash: fine bhai. I understand. You don't worry. When he comes, I'll receive him and take him to the poolside benches. There you can easily discuss your proposal without being disturbed.
Arnav: thanks akash.
Anjali: what are you guys discussing huh? Don't think you can escape arnav. You still have to meet the mamiji who has come all the way from Kanpur. Come with me.
And she dragged arnav off with her. Arnav dropped and shaked his head. Relatives. There was never an end to them.
Khushi had reached raizada mansion. It was somewhere around 8 pm .She could see a lot of hustle and bustle there. Then she saw akash coming towards her.
Akash: are you mr.joy singh?
Khushi made a hoarse man like voice and replied.
Khushi: yes sir. And you must be akash singh raizada if I am not mistaken.
Akash: yes. I am. So you are here to meet bhai, I mean asr?
Khushi: yes. I had a proposal to discuss with him. I am from singhania industries.
Akash: please follow me. I'll take you to the place where he'll meet you. But let me warn you that whatever you discuss be to the point. Its his haldi ceremony today and he was quite busy and is tired now . he has gone to take bath after the haldi ceremony and will be with you in a short while. Please be seated here.
Akash said pointing to the chair and table by the pool side.he opened arnav's laptop and loaded the presentation. Just then arnav walked in.
Arnav: thanks for helping akash. You can leave us. Many people want to meet you along with payal. Don't worry I wont take long.
And akash excused himself and left.
Khushi's heart started beating faster. But today she had to control herself. She had to get back at arnav.
Arnav came forward and offered his hand for a shake. Khushi accepted and there was a hand shake. But when she touched arnav it sent butterflies flying in her stomach.arnav closed his laptop saying that they wont be needing that and kept it aside.
Arnav: I hope mr singhania explained everything to you.
Khushi: I am sorry I don't get you.
Arnav: oh come on stop your acting. Everyone knows how this business is run.
Khushi: sorry but I don't follow.
Arnav: ok what I tell you, shouldn't leave this room. Understood? Otherwise I'll make your life a living hell.
Arnav: everyone knows me to be a great business man. That I am. But no one knows what I really am.
Khushi: what is that?
Arnav: oh jeez. Singhania is a fool. He should have explained everything to you. Now I am wasting my time.
Khushi: please be clear mr arnav.
Arnav: this wedding is just a cover up. I am gay.
Khushi stood up in shock.
Arnav: yes I am gay. And all people in my business send men to me for my pleasure and I approve their deals. That is how this system works. And today singhania has sent you. I have always wanted to know how a sardar would be like.
Arnav advanced. And khushi was enveloped in fear. She started to walk backwards until she hit a wall and arnav pinned her against the wall. Tears were coming out of her eyes.
Arnav: oh don't cry. You'll be paid for all your troubles and be well taken care off.
Arnav took off his coat and then took off khushi's coat. Khushi was petrified to move. She had got one of the biggest shocks of her life. Arnav then unbuttoned her first button, then the second button and then kissed her on the cheek over the beard,
Arnav: oh my lovely tomato. How easy are you to fool? did you like Arnav singh raizada's dostana?
Arnav: I can spot you even if I am blindfolded. You are a part of my soul and when you near me, I can feel you.The moment I came into the room I knew it was you khushi kumara gupta. I just wanted to play around with you as you had taken so much pains to surprise me.
arnav threw his head back and laughed.
Khushi: you fooled me again. Oh I wont leave you mr. raizada.
She ran behind arnav to hit him and punch him but arnav was quite fast. She couldn't catch him. She already had lots of extra clothing on her, which made it difficult for her to move easily.
Khushi: I am very mad at you. I take so much pains to meet you and you always do something to mess it up I am leaving.
She turned to leave but arnav stopped her. He picked her up and took her to his room. He placed her against a wall. He took off her turban and undid the knot on her hair and let them fall down. He removed her mustache and then the beard. He was gazing into her eyes and she was in turn doing the same. He took in her scent as she took in his. Their breathing got heavier.
And khushi like a flash leaned forward and kissed arnav on his lips.
Arnav didn't retreat. Why would he. He was having the time of his life with the love of his life. When they broke apart,
Khushi: I win.
Arnav: how so?
Khushi: you told me that you wont kiss me until marriage and gave e a big useless lecture on how boys are great and stuff. I proved you wrong.
Arnav smirked mischievously and replied,
Arnav: you are wrong again khushi kumara gupta.I said I wont kiss you and I stand by what I said. I didn't kiss you, you kissed me. and all that talk for how boys are great is also true. I didn't even need to move a muscle and you came running here just to kiss me. you kissed me, I didn't loose my side of the deal and you proved that we guys are way better than you. We can make girls run behind us if we want them to.And I being ASR, I am the best. you should know by now. Whatever I say and do, there is always a reason behind it khushi kumari gupta.
Khushi felt her jaw drop. This guy had too much ego. She was very irritated with him today.
she pushed him back.
Khushi:fine I am going home. I wont bother that ego of yours.
She put on her makeup and rest of her clothes.Arnav smiled as he saw her get irritated so much. oh he loved toublig her. khushi turned to leave.
But Arnav came behind her and hugged her.
Arnav: I am sorry tomato but I was just playing with you. I promise I'll make it up to you tonight. Please don't remain mad at me. It was just for fun.
Khushi: fine. We'll talk about this at night.
And khushi left for her home. She felt happy because she'll meet her arnav again tonight. And she'll definitely make him pay then. She got into arnav's car and asked the driver to drop her home as per arnav's instructions.
Akash: so how did the deal go bhai?
Arnav: oh come on akash, don't tell me that you didn't notice.
Akash: notice what bhai?
Arnav: that it wasn't joy singh, it was khushi in disguise.
Akash: WHAT?really bhai? I told you she is slightly crazy. What kinds of stuff does she do to meet someone.
Arnav: oh right. You shouldn't do what she did. You should get stuck to a chair for an hour at someone's house to meet the one you love. Right?
Akash was embarrassed.
Akash: fine bhai. I know you'll take khushi's side in everything from now on.
Arnav smiled as he thought: that is true.
Arnav didn't know how to pass the 2 hours so that everyone in the raizada mansion would have fallen asleep and he would be free to go to khushi's house.
Khushi was now waiting patiently for arnav. She was counting each and every second. She wasn't able to kill time. All she could think about was arnav, arnav and more arnav.
CHAPTER 8: My Will Of Fire
She was waiting for him. It was already 10pm and he didn't show. Buaji suddenly came in and asked khushi to follow her. khushi was slightly stunned. But she quietly followed her outside to her room. It had begun to rain outside. The storm that was supposed to bring havoc yesterday was completing its task today. Khushi felt slightly sad that arnav will not come here in this kind of weather.
Buaji: areh oh sanka devi. Come back to reality. Stop dreaming so much when we are talking to you.
Khushi: what is it buaji? What did I do now.
Buaji: forget it. I and garima have something more important to discuss.
Khushi: what is it?
Buaji:nothing sanka devi. Just wanted to talk to you for sometime. Are you happy with everything that is going on.
Khushi: no. I am not
Buaji: why? Is there something we left out?
Khushi: its not that. I want you and ma to stop living in the past. What happened has happened. I have forgotten about it. So should you. Please stop feeling guilty.
Buaji: how can I bitiya? I curse myself every second of everyday for calling you an orphan. And you kept quietly sacrificing for us again and again. How will I forgive myself?
Khushi: areh buaji. Stop fussing about the past. Who cares about it. I am so happy that all misunderstandings have been cleared and I am going to marry arnavji. I am the happiest person right now. So don't sulk like this otherwise I'll get sad looking at you both sulk.
Buaji, garima and khushi spent some time together laughing talking together.khushi didn't even realize the time go by. It was still raining heavily outside. Buaji then noticed the time and then led khushi back to her room to sleep. She lay down to sleep and buaji left. She was now deep in arnav's thoughts when she heard a sound. someone was knocking. Khushi looked at her window in shock. Was it arnav outside? And her window was locked?
She hurriedly got up and wet to her window. Yes. Her windows were locked with latches. No one would have been able to open from the outside. She opened the latches to find a completely drenched arnav standing under the heavy rain. He was drenched from head to foot. She helped him get in through the window. He was soaked in water and was very cold. He would be shivering khushi thought.
Khushi: are you alright.
Arnav: ya just get me a towel. I need to dry myself.it is very cold.
Khushi ran to get the towel. She came back and said,
Khushi: how long were you outside?
Arnav: for the last 30 to 40 minutes. Why?
Khushi:are you crazy?what if something happens to you? You might get ill or something worse.
Arnav: I have to do one thing everyday till the day I die.
Arnav: see my tomato at 12 o clock in the night.
Khushi: huh? Why?
Arnav: nk said this about new years day but just to be on the safe side I feel better if I know that I can do all in my power to be with you all my life and every life.
Khushi was touched. Yes for the past few days arnav alwasys made sure he was with khushi at 12 in the night. She just went forward and hugged him as tight as she could for being this thoughtful. She just wanted to melt in his arms. But he was still wet and had started sneezing.
Khushi: wait here I'll go and get something for you to change into. Otherwise if you keep sitting like this you'll definitely catch a cold.
Arnav nodded agreeing to her. She soon came back with a trousers and more towels as the first one was too wet to do any good.
Khushi: I have one of your shirts in the other room. I'll go get it. When she returned arnav was shirtless, and was in khushi's babuji's old formal pants and was using a towel to dry his hair off. Khushi was shocked seeing the state he was in. she blushed and turned away from him immediately. Arnav was amazed to see the innocence of his wife. He smirked looking at her get so worked up. He turned her towards him. Khushi immediately closed her eyes.
Arnav: I am the one without clothes and you are feeling shy?
Khushi was still keeping her eyes tight shut. She could feel the heat coming from arnav's body. The moist air that was surrounding him. Her breathing got deeper and deeper.
Arnav: you are my wife. If you are feeling shy now what will happen after marriage when we will share the same room? Come on stop acting like a child and open your eyes.
Khushi slowly opened her eyes. She was looking into his eyes. She refused to lower her gaze. Arnav took her hand and placed it over his heart. Khushi shivered at the time of contact. It sent some vibrations throughout her body. Man was this guy ripped. Arnav looked like some sort of a model with his muscles and a six-pack to boot.
Arnav: have you stared enough?
She went dark red.
Arnav: you know if I turned off the lights right now I bet you'll glow in the dark.
Khushi blushed even more.
Arnav: good thing for me. At night it will be easier to find you and get naughty.
And that did it. She blushed so much that arnav had to give her a little hug.
But that didn't make khushi feel any better. It made her feel worse. The feel of his body against her's. She was having some desires evoked within her that she had never felt before. She needed him. Right now right there. She then gave him a kiss that would make all their other kisses they shared look like a joke. The passion she put into that one kiss conveyed to arnav how much she liked him. And arnav responded in kind. It was starting to get real hot until arnav stopped the kiss.
Arnav: save something for marriage night.
And winked at her. Khushi giggled. Due to the kiss arnav had lipstick all over his mouth. She took her hand to wipe it off when arnav stopped her.
Arnav: leave it be. I'll take care of it.
Then he folded his lips and sucked the lipstick off them.
Arnav: strawberry has become my favorite fruit thanks to khushi kumari gupta.
Khushi: I really cant wait for later today. I am going to get married.
Arnav: no you aren't. Marriage is tomorrow, not today
Khushi was confused.
Arnav: but you said 3 days?
Arnav: it was past midnight then khushi. So I told you the exact time left. It was actually 4 days.
Khushi: nooo. What will I do tomorrow.
Arnav: don't worry sweety, its just a day. And di wanted to keep a day for the rest of the family to relax before the marriage.
Khushi: di. No. Why is it that I get tortured so much?
Arnav smirked. She was as impatient as he was about them being far apart from each other. He gave her a small kiss on her cheeks.
Arnav: you are too cute at times.
Khushi: promise me that you'll come and meet me during the day.
Arnav looked a bit worried.
Arnav: sorry khushi I wont be able to do that. I have a very important meeting tomorrow.
Khushi felt something strange about arnav when he said this.
Khushi: so your work has already started to come in front of your wife huh?
Arnav looked away and said,
Arnav: it's not like that khushi. You will always be the first one in my list of priorities. In fact you have all of the first 10 places. But I really need to meet some people tomorrow.
Khushi: its ok. Don't get so tensed. I'll be fine. I'll just miss you like hell. That's all.
Arnav: fine to make up for that I'll sleep next to you all night. Howz that khushi kumari gupta?
Khushi blushed. But she wanted arnav to stay badly and hence asked him to.
Arnav finally put his shirt back on. He then picked khushi up and placed her on the bed. He switched off the lights and went and cuddled next to his to be wife. She hugged him tightly as though she life without him would be meaningless. She lay over his chest. Listening to his heartbeat.
Khushi: I love you so much.
Arnav: I love you too, my tomato.
Saying that he took his hand and pinched her cheeks. And saw how colour rushed to the place where he had touched her. She was having goosebumps all over her body. He was breathing over her head. Sending a shiver through her body. Arnav was glad to know that he had this effect on her. He kissed her forehead.
Khushi slept after a few minutes but arnav was wide awake. He looked at that innocent face in the night. Khushi looked like a small child when she was asleep. He watched her sleep. Without moving one bit. He wanted to be there for her. Always. He will never leave her again. Never hurt her again.
Arnav(whispering): I am so sorry khushi. I promise never to hurt you again. I will always be there for all your needs and will even gladly give my life if that pleases you. You are the one thing that I cannot lose and I love you so much that being away from you will kill me. You are the fire that gives my life brightness. If you are not there my life is just empty darkness and I will be alone without you. Alone in the dark with no place to go and no sense of survival. You complete me. Without you I am nothing and will never be anything. I swear to always be by your side holding your hand. You are my will of fire and I swear to you that I will never let it diminish.
Arnav: You are my wife, you are my Will Of Fire.
Khushi had tears in her eyes. Arnav hadn't noticed that she was awake as soon as he had started speaking. She started to weep. She felt so lucky to have such a caring man by her side. She opened her eyes and looked at arnav. Arnav was slightly shocked. He hadn't expected khushi to be awake. He also had tears in his eyes. She was looking down at him with overwhelming affection and love.
Arnav: khushi I didn't know you were awake. I---
Khushi put a hand over his mouth to silent him.
Khushi: shhh' don't say anything more.
She kissed his forehead and then claimed his lips as a wife would. It lasted for a long time. Their tears were mixing, their breath, their life all were mixing to form one being. They belonged together and no one will ever be able to break them apart. Their bond was strong and arnav's words had transformed their love. It had taken their love to a higher level. A sense of trust, of life that can never be described in simple words. No, this love couldn't be described. No one could answer the question'Iss pyaar ko kya naam doon?
Khushi: always remember one thing. Never ever talk about giving your life ever again. It isn't yours to give. It is mine. It belongs to me now.
Arnav: always my dear. Always.
Then arnav came forward to kiss her.
Khushi: but you said you wont kiss me till our marriage. Want to loose?
Arnav: I am prepared to loose to you everyday if it means I can show my love for you.
Khushi couldn't wait for arnav to close the distance. She did it herself. They were lost in each other until they finally fell asleep.
Buaji was angry. Khushi had locked her door and was still not awake. Breakfast was getting cold. She decided to serve khushi her breakfast in bed. But the door was locked. She started knocking the door loudly and was shouting,
Buaji: areh oh sanka devi. Get up. Its become so late and you are still asleep.
Khushi awoke with a start. She was still in arnav's arms. He was fast asleep. She bent and kissed him on his cheek.
Khushi: get up hottie. Buaji is knocking? Do you want to get caught?
Arnav opened his eyes. He pulled khushi in for a hug.
Buaji: oh sanka devi. Open the door or I'll break it open.
This brought khushi back to her senses. Now she started to panic.
Khushi: get up get up. otherwise we'll be caught. Buaji will kill both of us if she spots us like this.
Arnav: I really don't care tomato.
Khushi pulled him up.
Khushi: you laad governor get up and hide. You dare come in front of buaji.
Saying so she made arnav go and hide into her cupboard. Arnav was just smirking.
She then went to open the door and let buaji in. buaji came in with an irritated face. She came in and hit khushi on her head slightly.
Khushi: owww buaji. What happened?
Buaji: its nearing lunch time and you haven't even had your breakfast. Here I brought your food. You eat these pooris and when you're done, keep all of this back in the kitchen.
Saying so she left.
Arnav came out of the cupboard.
Khushi: come have something before you leave.
Arnav: missing me already huh. Doing all in your power to delay me?
Khushi: keep quiet and eat.
Saying so she fed him and he fed her in silence. They were relishing each other's presence. Both dreading the fact that they were going to be away from each other after a few minutes.
Khushi: you better leave. Someone may spot your car.
Arnav: I know sweety. I am telling my legs to move away from you but they are protesting. They aren't listening at all. What am I supposed to do?
Khushi went forward and kissed his cheeks,
Khushi: is that enough for their protest
Arnav smiled naughtily and said,
Arnav: for now'
He then went to the window climbed out and left in his car. Khushi had already started to miss him. Her heart was heavy. She felt sad. She had to distract herself for the next 12 hours until arnav came to her house.
Khushi: 12 hours? Damn it.
After sometime khushi got a call from an unknown number. She picked up. It was a girl's voice on the other side,
Stranger: is this khushi kumari gupta?
Khushi: yes. May I know who is calling?
Stranger: no you may not. I am calling to warn you about something.
Stranger: stay away from arnav singh raizada. I will not allow you to snatch him away from me. do you understand. I shall do everything in my power to make sure that you don't take him away from us you witch. We know all about you. Your evil magic will not work on arnav. He is coming to meet us today and we will make sure that he doesn't fall into your trap you evil woman. I have a lot of people who will persuade him today. You will begone from his life.
Saying so the stranger cut the call.
Khushi was shocked. What the hell was going on?
CHAPTER 9: The Mystery
Khushi was standing there. Too shocked to react. She couldn't digest the fact that someone had called her to threaten her that they'll take arnav away from her. By the style of speaking she felt that she was talking to a very small girl. But what she heard could not justify her sense of reasoning. She had to find out as to what was going on. She would call Arnav and find out who he was meeting today. She looked for his number in her call list and dialed. But no one picked up. Khushi was starting to feel really scared.
Khushi: if he wont pick up, I'll go to raizada mansion and meet him and ask him face to face.
Making an excuse to go to the parlor to her bua, khushi left the house. She got into an auto and left towards raizada mansion.
She entered the house. Her heartbeats were increasing. She felt fear. She didn't know why she was giving so much importance just to a phone call from an unknown number. But her instincts were telling her that something is not right about all of this. She went to arnav's room but he wasn't there. She went to the kitchen and asked OP,
Khushi: om prakashji where is arnavji? Have you seen him?
OP: Yes deedee. He has just left for some important meeting. He was slightly different today. As though he was nervous or scared about his meeting. I have never seen arnav bhaiya like that in my life.
This had done it. Now khushi panicked. She started to run towards the car park to catch arnav if she could. But she was too late. She saw him get into his car, start it and take off. She ran behind the car but it was of no use. She quickly got into anjaliji's car and asked the driver to follow arnav. They followed him for a long time. She had no idea as to where arnav was driving. He drove deep into the heart of delhi. He then finally stopped his car and got out. And khushi's car also stopped behind his, but not in his view. He took about 15 to 20 roses and lilies from a nearby flower shop. Then another car came and stopped near his. And aman got down. He had some gifts in his hands.Khushi was getting more and more confused.
Khushi: what is going on here? I don't understand this.
She followed him silently as she wanted to see who was threatening her. She had to know. She can always ask questions later. Arnav and aman went into what looked like a big house and had a huge garden in front of it. She followed them into the house and hid behind some boxes and canisters. Due to the fact that she had to hide she couldn't see whose house this belonged to. Arnav and aman went inside. After about 10-15 minutes, she got a message. It was from arnav.
It read: I don't want you in my life khushi. I am leaving you forever.
Khushi felt the ground under her disappear. She felt as though she had started to fall. A fall without any place that she could stop. She was falling, falling, falling. Tears flooded her eyes and she felt as though a knife went through her heart and pierced it out of her chest.
Then she received another sms. It was from the unknown number.
It read: see I told you that we'd convince him.
Khushi fell on the ground. Some memories came back to her aid.
Arnav's memories of last night
Arnav: you are my wife. You are my will of fire.
She felt her heart beat again.
Some life returning to her. No she refused to accept this. This cannot be her arnav. This isn't her arnav. The one who she had last night couldn't possibly break her heart again. She had full faith in the love of her life. She would trust arnav with her life. She replied to the message,
Khushi: I don't care what you say. We are both in love with each other and I have full faith in arnav and in me that we wont let anything come between us.
She felt courage seeping in her. Her god was giving her strength. She then went into the house wanting to face reality. She hid behind a wall and saw arnav surrounded by children of all ages. They were all catching their ears as if asking forgiveness and arnav was equally shocked as khushi to see this.
She went close enough to eavesdrop as she wanted to hear what they were telling arnav.
Arnav: what happened? Why are you all catching your ears. Did you guys do some mischief again?
One of the childern, a girl of no more than 11 years put her hand up and said, we have done something bad.
Arnav: tell me priya? What mischief were you guys up to? Huh?
With a small smile on his face. He knew this group of kids always loved pulling pranks and were up to no good. Always doing something that would land them into trouble.
Priya: you told us that you'll bring your wife to meet us afterwards. But we really wanted to meet her to know if she is good for you
Ananya: ya arnav bhaiya. We gave her a threatening call so that she will follow you here and we'll finally meet her.
And they recounted their story of how they took their teacher's phones to give khushi a call and their whole story and how they had taken arnav's phone asking it to play games while they actually sent messages to khushi.
Arnav listened patiently and after it all started to laugh.
Arnav: you guys are really something else huh? Oh my god how will I ever explain it to khushi. She and her devi maiyya will skin me alive tonight.
Arnav: anyway why did you guys do it?
Adarsh: anrnav bhaiya you have done so much for us so we wanted to make sure that you spend your life with a fairy princess.
Arnav put his hand on the small boy's head and said,
Arnav: she is a princess to me adarsh. Not a fairy princess but a glowing tomato princess.
And arnav smirked.
Priya: does she have any powers?
Arnav: Many. She has the power to control my heart beats. When she comes near me they suddenly increase. And the most important power of all, she glows in the dark.
The children exclaimed,
Priya: how is that possible?
Arnav: whenever I touch her, she turns so red that no other light is required in the room.
Khushi had started to blush while listening to all this. She couldn't believe arnav was actually saying all this to children.
Priya: oh then she sounds perfect. We all made a card to give to her we were quite sure that she would come. But she didn't. now how do we give it?
Khushi: why not just hand it to me?
Khushi had come out of her hiding place and was now in front of the kids.
Children shouted in unison: khushi deedee
And they surrounded her. Khushi already had tears in her eyes. She was for some reason feeling very happy at the moment. Then one of the kids went and brought her the card that they had made. it consisted of a huge castle and 15 knights were drawn on it.
Dear khushi deedee,
We the knights and princesses of raizada anathaashram wish you and arnav bhaiya a happy married life. He is a very good and caring bhaiya who has taken care of all of us for a long time now. So if you break his heart we shall wage war on the gupta castle. You really don't want to mess with15 knights who drink complan everyday. We are taller stronger and sharper. Ok. Apart from that please make sure that you love him very much because he has loved us so much that he shouldn't be spent of love. He should always be a millionaire in love land. We are really looking forward to get to know you deedee and the rest of the raizada family in the future. Pleas have 10000000000000000000000000s of kids. And do visit us whenever you can.
And then there was a sign of 15 children along with their palm prints.
Reading the letter touched Khushi. She bent down and kissed each kid on his or her cheek and got a huge group hug. Finally when they broke up she went towards arnav who was happily looking at the child inside her play with the kids. When she finally reached him.
Arnav: sorry khushi. I should have told you about this sooner but,
His sentence was cut short when khushi placed a finger on his lips,
And she hugged him.
Khushi: why didn't you tell me about this sooner?
Arnav: I don't know. I founded this nursery after we got married. And I used to come here to lighten the hate that had consumed me and distract myself from the fact that the person I had fallen in love with loved someone else. You know. I am sorry again khushi.
Khushi: enough of your sorry. I never want to hear about that word from your mouth regarding that subject anymore. We should make use of the present moment to create a better future. So no more sulking got it?
And she kissed him on his cheek.
All children started shouting: look look, she is really glow in the dark tomato deedee.
Khushi looked away slightly embarrassed.
Khushi:you laad governor, how can you tell them all this?
Arnav: so what tomato. It is the truth isn't it?
Khushi and arnav bid the kids goodbye promising them that they'll visit them soon.
Arnav took khushi's letter and read it. He was smiling after reading it.
Arnav: you'll have to start putting a habit of calling me arnav when we are alone.
Khushi: why arnavji? Isn't arnavji better?
Arnav just smiled and pointed at the letter and said,
Arnav: if we have to get these many kids, wont it be a lot quicker to say arnav? Don't you think adding that ji will make the process slower?
Khushi looked confused. Arnav was smiling looking at the innocence of his wife. When it actually hit her as to what he had meant she blushed so much that someone could mistake her for,
Khushi: no please. Tomato is way better.
And arnav and khushi burst out laughing. He dropped her home and said,
Arnav: meet you tonight khushi. We'll have dinner together.
Khushi: yeah. Sure. I'll definitely wait.
Arnav: bye tomato princess.
Khushi: bye cockroach.
Saying so she ran into her house leaving arnav slightly irritated.
Arnav: oh you'll pay khushi kumara gupta. You're gonna pay.
CHAPTER 10: Caught???
Arnav had dropped khushi at her home and was returning to the raizada mansion. He had already started to miss khushi.
Arnav: how the hell am I going to work after marriage? Knowing she is at home. Unbelieveable.
He had to surprise her tonight. It was the last night before their marriage. He had to do something for his lovely tomato something that she won't expect even in her wildest dreams. Then it struck him. Yes his plan will be just perfect.
khushi was done making dinner for the gupta's. she had a huge argument with buaji,
buaji: areh sanka devi, why don't you have something to eat? Its your marriage tomorrow and if you don't have strength you'll faint.
Khushi knew she couldn't eat then as she had plans with her arnav. She couldn't eat with buaji.
Khushi: I have some problems in my stomach buaji. I'll eat when I feel hungry. You guys carry on and eat.
Buaji stopped pestering khushi after a while as she knew that this sanka devi was crazy. She would not listen.
Khushi then finished her household chores as quickly as possible and made sure that buaji and garima and her babuji were fast asleep before returning to her room happily and locking the door behind her. She checked for the time and knew that she had some time till arnav got there. She went and had a bath to freshen herself up.She changed into an orange saree and let her hair down. She put on arnav's gifted bangles and put on some other jewellery that would make her look like a bride. She was going to make him super jealous of her. A wicked smile was on her face. Oh yes she was ready to make his heart leap out of his chest when he sees her.
There was a knock on her door. Khushi was smiling and she went and opened it.
Payal: getting ready for someone are we?
Khushi was shocked to see payal at her home.
Arnav was at his home. His di was already pestering him about something or the other. Di was always Di. She would never change could she.
Anjali: areh chotey stop doing your work. I have already informed aman that he is not to answer any of your calls or set up any tele conferene or internet conference for the next few days. And I have also told him that if he does then I'll go and protest outside AR head office.
Arnav: kya di? That was one time pass I had. I could kill my time through work and now you have taken that too away from me.
Anjali: oh I know it is difficult for you to pass time without khushi nearby but this time you'll have to manage. By the way akash has gone to drop payal at her house. I thought it would be better if payal spends tonight with khushi.
Arnav cursed. How the hell was he supposed to meet khushi now? His di always came up with the worst ideas in existence.
Akash had begrudgingly accepted to drop payal home. He was so damn unhappy to do so. he and payal couldn't spend time together at all because of the marriage celebrations and other functions. Payal was completely engrossed in all the preperations as she wanted to stay on the good side of mamiji (her MIL).
khushi: jiji what the hell are you doing here?
Payal: wow. I thought you'll be very happy to see me and here I find you so sad at my arrival?hmm so whats the reason?
Khushi: areh jiji I had to meet that laad governor today for dinner. And now you have come and spoiled everything.
Payal: ha ha ha.(sarcastic laugh) and as though I coming here doesn't ruin my time with akash. So you had plans to meet today huh?
Khushi: areh jiji you don't know half the stuff. I have been meetig him everynight for the last three days.
Payal: besharam. cant wait for your marriage tomorrow?
Khushi: as though you guys waited jiji?
Payal:you are really crazy. Shut up. Anyway I sacrificed my time with akash to be with you. So stop complaining.
Khushi: well forget it. Its useless to argue now. The whole night is ruined. Fine let me change. Then we'll chat a little and then sleep.
Khushi went and changed into her night attire. She felt extremely sad for not being able to meet arnav and tease him today. She had so many plans for him and all of them had just gone down the drain because her jiji had come to stay.
Akash returned home after dropping payal. He went straight to arnav's room. He didn't know why but he waned to talk to arnav. He didn't even know what he wanted to talk. He just wanted to see him.
We walked in and saw arnav. He was quite tensed.
Akash: bhai why are you so tensed?
Arnav was startled.
Arnav: tensed? Why should I be tensed? Anyway whats up? What are you doing here? Dropped payal already?
Akash: yes bhai. I just dropped her and came back.
Arnav and akash both wanted to meet their wives and knew that the only way It was possible would be if they both went so that both payal and khushi agree. Otherwise it would be very awkward if they went alone.
Arnav: so you on your way to sleep?
Akash:ummm yes bhai. I mean no bhai. I was wondering if you could help me with something tonight.
Arnav: sorry akash I am very busy tonight. I have a conference with some very important clients.
Akash: oh come on bhai. One day for your marriage don't you want to break some rules?
Arnav: what are you talking about.
Akash: I want to go to gupta house. Cant you come too? Lets break some rules bhai.
Arnav: don't worry akash. I have broken the rules everyday. I have gone to khushi's house everynight for the past 3 days. And yes before you ask she is the client I was talking about before.
Akash: I should have known. But bhai were you never nervous going there? I mean when I went there during new year eve, I was scared out of my wits.
Arnav: oh come on akash. Why would I be scared. There is no reason for me to get scared.
Akash: but what if you were caught?
Arnav: what would have happened? At the most the elders would have been slightly angry. But who cares about that man. The thing I go there for is khushi. Nothing else matters to me.
Akash: so any plans? How do we go?
Arnav: by car. How else?
Akash: what if someone cathes us.
Arnav: man akash. Stop being so damn scared about everything. Everything will be fine. It simple and easy.lets just walk out of here. You ready?
Akash: yes bhai. Lets go.
Akash and arnav silently walk towards the front door of their house when a voice stopped them.
Anjali: and where do you think you both are going at this time of the night?
Arnav: for a small conference di with foreign clients.
Anjali: chotey stop fooling around with me. I told you that I had already called aman and have postponed all your business related meetings.
Akash:di we were
Anjali: on your way to meet khushi and payal right?
Anjali came forward and caught both akash's and arnav's years and twisted them a bit.
Arnav: di stop. Yes we were going there.
Anjali: what is happening to the males of this house. First amar akbar Anthony and now this? Breaking every rule in the book?
Arnav: di rules are meant to be broken.
Anjali: oh is that so? ok fine. Lets see how you guys go today. I'll lock you both inside your respective rooms with a key and will hide the keys somewhere till morning.
And that is exactly what she did. She first locked akash and then locked arnav. And took the keys with her to her bedroom.
Arnav called akash,
Arnav: don't fall aseep yet.
Akash: but how will we get out? Di locked our rooms.
Arnav:I wont accept defeat so soon akash. Wait for me by your window. I'll be there soon.
Arnav was so glad he had installed French windows by the pool side. It would be so easy getting out of there. But the only problem was that his room was on the first floor and that his window was atleast 15 feet from the ground. Then another brilliant idea struck him. He used the blanket, window screen cloth bed cover and bedsheet and tied them all together. He tied one end to the base of the pillar in his pool and the other he threw out of the window. It was enough for him to climb down.
Arnav: you should definitely maintain your body for situations like these. Its nice that I have muscles to easily pull this off.
He then climbed down. Arnav soon went around the house to akash's window it was a nice thing that he was on the ground floor otherwise arnav knew that akash would be too scared to do what he did.
Akash was stunned to find arnav at his window even though arnav had told he was going to be there in a couple of minutes. But he was speechless as he thought it to be impossible. He went out the window and asked arnav:
Akash: bhai how did you get out?
Arnav: climbed down the window.
Akash: but that is dangerous bhai.
Arnav: enough. You want to go or not?
Akash: ya but,
Arnav:Come lets go quickly before someone sees us like this and di awakens.
They sat in arnav's suv and arnav drove into the night towards the gupta's house. Nothing would stop him from executing his plan tonight. Absolutely nothing.
CHAPTER 11: The Raizada brothers.
Akash and arnav were driving to the gupta house. He had taken his black suv so that his car wouldn't be seen leaving the raizada mansion. He had informed the guards not to tell anyone of their departure in his stern ASR style warning them if word of this was to get out he will make their life miserable. he knew he was bluffing, but since when had anyone been able to catch his bluff?
Both of them were really excited. There is always something about breaking rules that creates a lot of excitement. And Arnav loved breaking rules, be it business or now his personal life. He wasn't at all feeling bad for not listening to his di. His excuse was that since he was already married to khushi, whats the big deal. No one can separate husband from wife. And this was arnav.
Akash: bhai have you thought the whole thing through?
Arnav: akash relax. Stop panicking. Take deap breaths. Yes I have planned everything. But there is one problem.
Akash: oh my god. Now there is a problem? What is it?
Arnav: didn't I ask you to relax. Shut up and listen to me.
Akash took his finger and placed it over his lips to show that he will remain quiet.
Arnav: I have planned to take khushi out for a surprise. But I wont be able to take you two along.
Akash: ya that's ok bhai. I'll stay with payal at her house itself. We don't want to intrude into your time with khushi bhabhi.
Arnav: oh. Thanks akash for you understanding. You are speaking as though you are doing me a huge favour.
Akash looked away embarrassed.
They had finally arrived at gupta house.
Arnav quietly parked the car behind the house so that it can only be seen from khushi and payal's room.
But there was one thing they weren't prepared for. khushi's room had her window closed and the lights were out. Arnav and aksh slowly and silently went and stood under her window. He tried pulling the window. But as arnav guessed it was locked.
Arnav: khushi kumari gupta, how can you close the window when I told you that I'll be coming.
Akash:bhai you did tell her right.
Arnav: oh come on akash. Do you think I would do something so stupid as to tell her to close her windows at night and sleep.
Akash: but then bhai how else are we supposed to go in without waking up the house?
Arnav: we definitely have to find another way in. oh, khushi, you are so going to pay for this mistake of yours.
Akash: bhai scold her after you meet her lets try to go in.
Arnav: why don't you got through this side and I'll go through the other side. Just find some window or door that is open. Any one would be enough.
Akash: oh god please let one window be open.
And he scurried off in the direction arnav pointed and arnav went on his side. He was starting to feel out of luck but then he found one window open. He went near the window and peeped inside. He wanted to know which room this was. His eyes immediately felt on the one person sleeping in that room. It was buaji.
Arnav: what the, shit we cant go in from here. If she wakes up, we're dead.
He went back to where he had come from. He was waiting for akash. Akash had made him wait a long time. Arnav started wondering if something had happened to him when he heard aksh calling out to him in whispers.
Akash: bhai where are you? I lost my specs. Cant see properly in the dark.
Arnav: Unbelievable man. Akash I am here. What happened where are your glasses.
Akash: don't know bhai. As soon as I found a window open I went close to inspect. But while trying to get in I slipped and fell. Mom heard the noise. She came and locked that window. Sorry bhai.
Arnav: then there is only one hope. We'll have to go through buaji's room.
Akash: bhai are you sure. if she sees us, we're doomed.
Arnav: we don't have a choice man. I didn't climb down my house just to go back empty handed.
Akash: but bhai you'll have to help me. I literally cant see in the dark.
Arnav asked akash to follow him but akash didn't know which way to go. He just started walking and BAM, He hit his head on a wall.
Arnav rushed back to see what had happened to his brother. He found aksh catchin his nose and one hand in his mouth to stop himself from screaming.
Akash: bhai I told you I cant see without specs in the dark.
Arnav: oh akash don't tell me.
Akash: yes bhai.
Arnav hissed and then caught akash's hand and led him to buaji's window.
Akash: bhai we should ask Anjali di to do a hawan or some pooja here.
Arnav asked him looking utterly confused.
Akash: whenever I come here something bad always happens to me and I get injured. Last time buaji hit me and now the house itself is asking me to get lost.
Arnav was trying to stifle out his laughter.
Arnav: you should stop with all this omen nonsense. We'll be fine. Just relax.
Akash: bhai, I lost my glasses, cant see anything right now and got hot by a wall so hard and you are asking me to relax? How can I relax?
Arnav: calm down. Tell me how did you manage to go in last time?
Akash: I lit up crackers in front of their door. They all came out and I sneaked in when no one was looking. Shall we try that again?
Arnav: are you mad. That was a new year. People could expect crackers. We don't have the crackers and not to mention if we light them up, we'll wake up the rest of the neighborhood and people will find my car being parked behind this house too suspicious. And the gupta family knows my car number. No it is too risky. We'll have to go through this window.
Pointing at buaji's room.
Arnav first helped akash get in. then he leapt in through the window. It was completely dark save the light on the streets that was giving a faint glow to the room. Arnav's eyes were now accustomed to the dark as they had been in darkness for quite a while. He could see stuff around him. Akash meanwhile was standing very stiff. As though he thought that if he were to breathe he'll knock something over. Arnav smiled looking at how scare akash actually was. He took akash's hand and was leading him to the door when akash by mistake kicked the side of her bed.
Buaji woke up.
Buaji: hai rey nand Kishore. What was that? Was that an earthquake? No it couldn't have been. Is there someone here?
Arnav looked at akash and whispered
Arnav: Hide. Quick.
Akash didn't know where to go. Arnav pushed him towards the ground and sent him under her bed. He tried to follow but buaji had reached the switchboard and had switched on the lights. She turned around and breathed,
Buaji: arnav bitwa,
buaji said shocked.
buaji:what are you doing here?
Akash hissed: shit.
Arnav stood there shocked not knowing how to react. But then the ASR in his mind came to his rescue as a plan popped into his mind. It was his only hope to escape this situation.It was his last hope. He had to do it.
