Hey all!! M back with the next chapter. U may find less of Arhi for 2-3 chapters but it is necessary for the story. Sorry for the errors.
Sonam (started in a sad tone): Bhai u know that i lost my parents when i was 3.
Rohan was not expecting a discussion about the past they wanted to bury deep as it was hurting him to see his baby sister talk about the people she loved n lost.
Rohan: Princess why r u saying this?? R we not ur family?? Is there something wrong??
Sonam (annoyed): Bhai!! Do u wanna know or not?? Don't feel bad. M fine. But we'll have to discus this for the whole story.
Rohan (with a sigh): Alright!! Continue.
Sonam: 4 years ago, uncle told me all about my parents. We were a loving family. My mom, papa, dii n me. A happy family. Dii was mom's favorite n i was closer to papa. We had gone to Manali for a holiday. Ur family joined us over there. My family was going out for site-seeing but as i was sleeping at that time and i loved being with u guys, they left me behind in the custody of ur mom. After 4 hours, there was a call from the police that their car met with an accident and due to fuel leakage, there was a blast. No one survived. Mom, papa n dii were no more.
Sonam had tears in her eyes by now. But still she continued: Their bodies were found in a very bad state. They couldn't b recognized but only two bodies were found at the accident site. They were of mom n papa. Nobody knew anything about dii.
Everybody concluded that may b she was so severely involved in that accident and she being just an 8 year old child, may b there was nothing left of her. Uncle did not believe in that story but as there was no proof of dii being alive, he could not do anything. So he took me in n looked after me like his younger child.
He handled the Mehta Empire as i was a kid n not mature enough to hande it. He gave me the whole authority over business when i turned 16 but as m still a minor, he is intending to handle the business for two more months till i turn 18. He still believes that dii is alive n may b some day we'll b able to find her. N i believe him. In my heart i know that dii is alive n i'll not leave any stone unturned to find her. I love u bhai but also need to find her.
Arjun: That's fine Princess but what it has to do with the Raizadas??
Sonam turns towards Arjun.
Sonam: Bhai i was just going to explain that part. When i saw that interview yesterday, i was so lost that i couldn't help thinking where i have seen those eyes. That innocence, that expression... Bhai i want to know about this Mrs. Khushi Arnav Singh Raizada.
Her eyes speak volumes. N somehow she reminds me of mom. She said in her interview that she lost her parents when she was 8. I need to know whether the feeling m getting that she's my Pari dii is correct or not. I need to know bhai. Please.
Sonam was crying hard by the time she ended. She wanted to b close to her parents. She was carrying on being happy just for the sake of her uncle n her Rohan bhai. But she missed her family badly. This room belonged to Khushi Mehta who was her elder sister. Their parents had given them adjacent rooms right from the beginning with a common door shared by the two rooms as they wanted the sisters to a special bonding sharing everything along with giving them their personal space as well.
Sonam continued: All the gifts bought by mom n papa r still in her cupboard. I have been adding gifts from my side to that pile since forever. When i was young, uncle used to say that Pari dii has gone to stay with a relative n i believed him. But now i know that she's somewhere where we could not reach her all these past years. But not any more bhai. I was not having any hint n that is why i was unable to find her inspite of my attempts. But now m having a gut feeling that Mrs. Raizada is my Pari dii.
You have to find out all about her Arjun bhai. I don't care how u'll do it. I only know that u WILL do it for me.
Arjun (cups her face n wipes her tears): Don't worry Princess. We'll find ur Pari dii. I promise. I'll start work now n get u all her details within a week. N the week ends next Friday. Just b patient.
Arjun went out to start with his work. Rohan came next to Sonam n hugged her tightly.
Rohan: Princess!! I know u r feeling upset right now but i assure u that we'll find her.
He wanted to cheer her up as he could not stand her tears. So finally he decided to share his biggest secret with her which he was hiding from her for one and a half month.
Rohan: I want to tell u something Princess.
Sonam pulled back from the hug to look in his eyes.
Sonam: What r u hiding Bhai??
Rohan: How can u say that m hiding something?? (winking at her)
Sonam laughed at his expression: I know it when u hide something bhai. I can read ur eyes. Remember?? Now speak up.
Rohan with a serious face: I have found ur bhabi.
It took Sonam full two minutes to register the information shared by Rohan with her. She was shoked but very happy.
Sonam: Finally!! Tell me who's she?? How she looks like?? Do i know her?? Is she a friend?? Hae i met her??
Rohan: Breathe Princess. (laughing) U know her very well. She works with u. (teasing her now)
Sonam: What?? Who?? Sonam was getting impatient now.
Sonam: Come on bhai. Tell me na.
Rohan: On one condition. U won't say anything about this to her or dad for now. I'll talk to dad myself when he returns. And well m planning to propose to her next saturday at the success party. I know i have known her for just one and a half month but i know that she's the one for me.
Sonam: Fine bhai. Promise. But who is she??
Sonam: What?? Bhai r u kidding me?? Lavanya?? Lavanya Kashyap?? But u don't know her much. And u know she's a bit weird. Sometimes oh so stubborn and sometimes all the more traditional.
Rohan: Don't u like her Princess??
Sonam: Its not that bhai. The thing is that she is ASR's ex. And she was known for her temper at AR. I don't know how she'll cope up with someone so calm like u. How r u so sure that u love her??
Rohan with a dreamy look: It doesn't take long to realize that. Accepting ur feelings is a greater challenge than realizing the feelings.
Sonam (smiling): Bhai if u r so sure about it then m with u. Go for it. She's a nice person at heart. I know her that much. (smiling)
Rohan (concerned): R u sure u r ok with it Princess??
Sonam: Of course bhai. How can i b not ok with it when u r so happy about it?? Congratulations. God m waiting for saturday. (beaming). Well then should i start calling her bhabi?? (Sonam teased Rohan winking at him)
Rohan with a wink: Sure. But not before saturday.
And they both broke into a hearty laugh. That was a very happy moment for them.
I know there was no Arhi in this chapter. But plzz bear with me. There's a lot coming up. The upcoming chapters will reveal many things.
How Khushi landed with the Guptas??
