Well, all I would like to say is keep reading!! The story will unfold in the coming parts.. And all your doubts will get cleared soon..
Hope you guys like it..
Lekin ek baat yaad rakhna, agar unhe itni si kharonch bhi
aayi, toh hum tumhe zinda dafna denge, aur yeh, Khushi Kumari Gupta Singh
Raizada ka vaada hai!!"
She had fallen prey to his dirty scheming years back. Only
then it had been her husband, this time it was her son!!
To say that the family was shocked would be an
understatement. The Raizadas had now known Khushi for the past 4 years. And
they had never known that she possessed this facet to her personality too..
Except one man! He knew Khushi better, (or so he thought). He had seen her
angry, infuriated and had even faced her wrath a few times. Only back then, it
had been directed at him.. But yet, today was different.. She was burning. Her
voice held so much hatred and chagrin.
He was again brought out of his contemplation by his
sister's voice as she called out to Khushi. Only it was stern this time.
"Khushiji.. Bass.. bohot bol chuki aap.. Aap inse aise kaise baat kar sakti
hai? Aur kya hum jaan sakte hain ki aap kis baat ka ilzaam laga rahi hai humare
pati par?" Anjali was furious now.
Shyam smirked and walked across the living room to join his
wife.. Not soo soon Khushiji.. The game has just begun.
"Haan Khushiji, bataiye.. aap kiske baare mein baat kar rahi
She looked up at Arnav, whose eyes held the same questioning
gaze but his face was deprived of any emotion. She then looked at her sister,
who gave her a reassuring nod and Akash who placed a hand on his wife to show
his support for for both the sisters.
Now was the moment of truth for Khushi.. The truth of her life
that had been hidden from the Raizadas for years..
"Humara bta.. woh lapata hain..Aur unhe iss gire hue insaan
ne agva karvaya hai.."
HUMARA BETA!! The rest of her sentence was unheard by the
entire family except Shyam, Payal and Akash..
Beta?? She didn't dare to look up at Arnav. She knew the man
well.. Arnav Singh Raizada commanded authority with every single twitch of his
muscle. She knew she couldn't face him. She wasn't prepared for it yet.
Anjali was the first one to speak. "Aapka beta?? Khushiji??
Lekin??" She was unable to frame a single sentence. Her eyes kept oscillating
between Khushi and her Chotte??
Shyam knew.. This was the chance.. He knew their weaknesses
and he had learnt to capitalize on them well.. Strike while the iron is
"Kya?? Kya kaha aapne Khushiji?? Aapka beta?? Lekin jahaan
tak humein pata hai, aapki aur saale-sahab ki shaadi toh ek contract thi.. Phir
yeh bachha saale-sahab ka toh ho nahi sakta.. Arre.. ek minute.. Kahin aapne
doosri shaadi toh nahi karli?", There you go woman.. You had the audacity to
come and challenge me in my own game..Deal with this first. He smirked and
looked at Khushi..
Khushi looked up at the Raizadas. So, they knew.. They
knew about the contract marriage. Her Jiji had told her.. Arnav had revealed
the truth to the family in a fit of fury.
She turned around to face Shyam. How she wished to remove
that smirk from his ugly face! One glare at him and she knew that it was all a
ploy.. A ploy to make her take the bait. She had to stay calm.. She started
counting 100 backwards.. That always helped..
Shyam knew she was stubborn.. And he loved it when she
played hard to get.. He decided to attack once again..
"Arre Khushiji, kya hua? Aise kyun ghoor rahi hain aap
humain? Bhai, hum kuch galat toh keh nahi rahe hain, Kyun Naniji?? Ya phir
kahin aisa toh nahi ki aapko apne hi bachhe ke baap ka naam hi pata nahi hai!!
Agar aisa hai toh bata diji'"
And he could never complete the sentence.. Khushi had turned
around and slapped him hard across his face..
"Chup.. Ekdum chupp!! Aainda kabhi humare bte ya unke pita
ka naam apni gandi zubaan par laane ki galti mat karna.."
She saw him clutch his cheek and admist gasps and shrieks,
walked over to her sister. "Jiji-Jijaji, humein yahaan se ab chalna chahiye..
Hum aapko khabar karte rahenge.." Payal couldn't hold back anymore.. She
engulfed Khushi in a hug, while Akash patted her head.. 'Apna khayal rakhna
Khushi parted from her sister when she heard Mami's taunt,
"ee dekho.. seeta ur geeta ka milan..phati saree and khoon-bhari taang..huh!!"
She walked through the shocked family members and made her
way out of the house as fast as her legs could carry her. She hired an
autorikshaw to Buaji's house.
Her parents were waiting for her at the doorstep. Obviously
Payal had called and informed them.. Garima ran forward and hugged her
daughter, while Buaji payed off the auto-driver. They took Khushi inside and
made her sit on the sofa.
Khushi was crying over her mother's shoulder. She had held
back her tears ever since the dreaded phonecall.
The stars dimmed. Khushi was standing in the verandah and
praying to her parents high in the heavens to keep her son safe. She prayed to
her Devi Maiya for the nth time in the day to protect him. She was just
about to turn and walk back into the house, when she heard the familiar
screeching sound of a SUV coming to a halt.
Arnav Singh Raizada was a man possessed; he was fury
personified. He strided towards Khushi, grabbed her right arm and dragged her
into the passenger seat.. Ignoring her cries and her family member's protests,
he drove off at a dangerously breathtaking speed. Khushi shut her eyes as she was
still terrified of high speeding vehicles. Her parents' accident still haunted
her. And for the first time, Arnav ignored her tears and fear. They reached an
isolated spot and he had stopped the car. He yanked Khushi out without caring
to see that she had hurt herself and blood was oozing out of her left wrist.
"Kyun aai ho tum waapas? Ab aur kya reh gaya hai? Kyun akela
nahi chod deti humein??"
Khushi was stunned.. She stared at him with teary eyes..
These were the last things she had expected him to say. She
had expected him to be mad at her, manhandle her, demand answers from her, ask her
about her whereabouts for the past 3 years, ask her about her son.. But here he
was instead asking her to leave them alone..
Leave him alone? Hadn't she done the same 3 years back
when she had stepped onto the train out of this place?
She turned around, not to let him see the tears that were
betraying her resolve. He sprinted forward and spun her around. He grabbed her
arms forcefully, "Tumse kitni baar kaha hai, jab main baat kara raha hoon toh
mooh mat fera karo.." She winced in pain and tried to wriggle out of his arms..
He looked into her eyes.
"Uss din jab mujhe hospital mein hosh aaya, toh sabse pehle
mujhe tumhara khayal aaya.. Socha, ki kyun yeh ladki jisne mujhe barbad karne
ke koshish ki, jisne meri di ko unki zindagi ka itna bada dhokha diya, woh
ladki aakhir mujhe bachaane wahaan kyun aayi thi? Kyun usne apni zindagi ko
mere liye daav par lagaya?? Main sochta raha.. hospital se bahar aakar tumhe
Lekin itne mein tumhare aashiq ne aakar meri saari
galatfamiyaan door kardi!! Usne mujhe bataya ki woh saara plan tum dono ne
milke banaya tha.. Bolo Khushi, tumne un papers par mere signatures liye the ya
nahi? Tum dono mujhe apne raaste se hatana chahtey the, right? Iss liye tumne
mujhe kidnap karvaya. Mujhe yaad nahi hai ki main wahaan se kaise bachke nikla,
lekin lagta hai meri Di ki duaein aur unka pyaar mere saath tha..
Gharwalon ne tumhe dhoondhne ki bohot koshish ki.. Lekin
main, main khamosh raha.. Kyunki main nahi chahta tha ki tum phir kabhi mere
Lekin tumne mujhe phir sahi saabit kiya.. Tum wapas aayi..
Aur manna padega Khushi.. kaafi convincing drama kiya aaj tumne.. Ghar par sab
ussi ke baare mein baat kar rahein hai..
Lekin sach.. sach kya hai, yeh main jaanta hoon.. Tum jaisi
ladki kissi bhi had tak gir sakti hai.. Paise khatam ho gaye honge, kyun? Ya
toh Shyam ne tumhe paise dene band kar diye honge ya phir yeh bhi tum dono ka
koi naya plan hoga.. Tum achhi tarah se jaanti ho, ki uss ghar ke log aaj bhi
tumse pyaar karte hain.. Tumne socha hoga ki Shantivan jaakar natak karke,
jhoothe aansoon giraane ke baad, hum tumhe paise de hi dete..
Well, paison se yaad aaya.. Kya kaha tha tumne? Tumhara
beta?? Aur woh kya tha.. Shyam ko itne gusse se chaanta marna?? Amazing, I must
say.. Taaki kisi ko shaq na ho ki woh baccha tumhara aur tumhare aashiq ka
hai.. Iss hadd tak gir gayi tum, ki tumne ek shaadi-shuda mard ke saath..
cheee!! Mujhe toh kehte hue bhi ghinn aati hai..
Ek tarah se tum jeet hi gayi ho.. yeh lo.. Cheque, 5 crore
hain.. Maine sign kar diya hai.. Ab isse lo, apni nautanki band karo aur yahaan
se dafaa ho jao.. Main nahi chahta ki tumhari wajah se meri Di ko koi bhi
pareshaani ho.. Haan, aur agar kam pad gaye, toh aur maang lena.. Main apni Di
ki khushi ke liye kuch bhi kar sakta hoon..
Waise, Khushi, tumne ab tak yeh mangalsutra, sindoor kyun
pehen rakhein hai? Aur yeh kangan??" He held her hands and pulled the bangles
out from her wrist, leaving her bruised.. "Meri maa ke kangan hain yeh.. Inpar
tum jaisi giri hui ladki ka koi haq nahi hai.. Haan toh , tum aaj tak apne naam
ke saath mera naam jodti ho? Kyun? Arnav Singh Raizada ki patni honey ke faayde
uthana chahti ho? Maan na padega Khushi tumhe, ek se pyaar aur ek ke naam se
Aur tumhara bachha?? Taras aata hai mujhe usspar.. Usse kya
pata ki uski Maa ne kya kya gul khilakar usse paida kiya hai.. Chee.. Maa toh
chodo, tum toh ek aurat bhi kehlane ke layak nahi ho.."
He pushed her down onto the ground, put the bangles in his
pocket and drove off..
Her eyes were shut. She opened her lips to say something,
but couldn't find her voice. It was as if her vocal cords were paralysed..
Woh humare baare mein itna bura sochte hain.. Hume laga
tha, ki aise achanak unke saamne aane par, woh gussa honge, humse jawaab
mangenge.. Lekin itni nafrat!! Itni kadvaahat.. itna jeher ghul gaya hai unke
zehen mein humare liye..
She tried opening her lips and to her surprise, this time,
she screamed.. Her screams echoed through the valley. She screamed and screamed
until she ran out of breath..
Kash Arnavji, Kash ki hum bhi aapse nafrat kar paate!!!
The very next moment, her phone rang.. It was Akash. Akash
and Payal had reached the Gupta's house and were shocked to hear that Arnav had
dragged Khushi away.. They were frantically searching for her on the streets of
She answered the phone and gave Akash directions to this
particular place. She sat there thinking about what had just transpired between
both of them.
Her son?? He
was missing.. She had to find him. He was her life, Devi Maiya's angel who had
been sent to her. She couldn't let anything happen to him. He was her most
precious treasure. She had to keep him safe. But there was nobody to help her.
Her parents were helpless. She knew Akash and Payal couldn't
help as much as they tried and wanted to. Arnav would never help her even if he
It was then that it struck her. There was someone.. In fact,
two people, who could help her. Her best friends, who had supported her
unconditionally. Two people, she could trust with her life.
And she dialed their phone numbers.
Two phones rang in different parts of the world and both
hopped onto the next flight to Delhi; to Khushi's aid.
