"lekin arnav ji yeh film toh aaj hi aa rahe hain...toh phir aapko yeh..." she asked. " Arnav Singh Raizada hoon...apne biwi keliye ithna bhi nahi kar sakta hain kya?" he smiled. unable to control her happiness she hugged him tightly.

"ha...ek tumare liye...aur ek mere liye." he said. "aap????? aap film dekhne chalenge???"she asked in wonder.

khushi wlks toward her room smiling...still lost in her thoughts...when she hears sum1 callin her. she turns to see t ws anjali. "di, aap ne hume bulaya?" she asked puzzled. " ji khushi ji...hume aap se kuch baath karni thi..." she said. "ji di...kahiye? aap ko kuch chaiyye kya?" khushi inquired. " nahi bas hume bohot zaroori baath baath karni hain...aaiye" she directed khushi toward her room. khushi followed.
naaniji was lukin for laxmi when she saw khushi followin anjali to her room. "anjali bitya khushi bitya ke saath?"
in anjali's room
"kahiye di kya baath hain...?" khushi inquired. "khushi ji main aap se kuch maangu toh aap woh mujhe dedengi?" anjali asked with tear filled eyes. "ji di...kahiyena" khushi said. "aap bas mujhe apna chote wapas deejiye...humare shyam ji bhi humare saath nahi hain...toh bas hume humari chote wasap kijiye..."anjali said thru her tears. khushi was shocked. and hurt. bt then she luked at her sister-in-law. "di...hum aapse wada karte hain ke aap ka chote aapko wapas kardoongi...wad karte hain di..."she said holdin anjali by her shoulders. anjali lukd a her. "aap bas ab araam kariye..." she forced di to lay down on her bed.
naaniji was listening from outside the room. she cld feel tears runnin down her face. she wiped them as khushi cam out of the room. "khushi bitiya..." she addressed khushi. "naani ji..." she luked at naani's face and realized tht she hd heard her convo with di. "naaniji di so gayi..." she said tryin to rassure her tht anjali is ok. "lekin bitiya aap..." naani ji began. "naaniji hum teekh hain..." she cut in with a smile n hurriedly wlkd to her room.
in the evening
arnav came home feeling happy. he wlkd towards his room. as he entered he saw a huge bag on the bed to which khushi ws puttin her clothes in. arnav was confused. "khushi, hume film dekne keliye ithna kapde nahi chaiyye...hum film hall film dekhne keliye jaa rahe hain...wah ghar banane keliye nahi..." he teased his wife. khushi lukd at him. "nahi arnav ji...hum film dekhne nahi ja sakte hain...hume buaji ki ghar jaana hain. " khushi replied. "film nahi dekhni...kyun? khushi ghar me sab teekh hain na?" he asked worriedly. " ha ghar pe sab teekh hain...par hume jaana hain..." she insisted."lekin kyun?" arnav asked his anger rising. "kisi ne kuch kaha kya?" he asked. "nahi...kisine kuch bhi nahi kaha...bas hume buaji, amma aur babuji ki bohot yaad aathi hain.." she said."toh film dekhne baath chalo na" he said. "nahi hume film dekhne ki koi maan nahi hain" khushi lukd away. "toh teekh hain...main bhi chaloonga...tumare saath..." he wlkd to the cupboard n strtd pullin his shirts out. "nahi aap ko aane ki koi zaroorath nahi hain...hum akele jaayenge...kal subha hum nikalthe hain." with tht khushi left the room. "yeh khushi ko kya hogaya...?" he thought to himslf.
when he came out of the bathroom after a wash khushi ws fast aslp. he wantd to wake her up n askd wats wrong bt she lukd so peacful tht he ddnt hv the heart to do so.
as arnav wlkd downstaires lost in thought. naaniji was siitin in the couch. "chote...aap teekh ho?" she asked. he luked at naani and went n sat beside her. he rested his head on her lap. naani was startled by his action. her chote never dd such thngs." chote kya baath hain? sab teekh toh ho na?" she asked worriedly. "naani...khushi kal jaa rahi hain...buaji ki ghar...aur woh nahi chahathi hain ke main uske saath chaloon...naani kuch teekh nahi hain...mujhe patha nahi kw kyun khushi aise kar rahi hain...naani main uske bina rehe hnahi sakta..." he said in tears. right now he ddnt feel lyk the businessman ASR bt he flt lyk his naani's chote. "kyun jaa rahi hain woh? jab main pooch thi hoon toh koi jawab nahi dey rahi hain...kyun woh yeh san kar rahi hain?" he asked. naani's hand tht was strokin his head stppd. noticing this arnav lifted his head and askd" naani...aap ko patha hain woh kyun jaa rahi hain? naani bathaiye na naani...pla naani" naani lukd at him wit tear filled eyes n said "woh anjali bitiya ki khatir jaa rahi hain..." "di ke kahtir...?" arnav asked puzzled. " ji chote..." said naani n tld him wat she overheard. aftr she finished her stry arnav got up angrily. and strtd wlkin toward the stairs. "chote chote...kaha jaa rahe aap?" naaniji asked worriedly. arnav went towards his room without a word.
he nearly kicked down the door of his room. angrily he luked around. he wnt toward the bed n grabbed a sleepin khushi's hand n jerked her awake. khushi woke up startled. he pullled her towrds the poolside n turned her toward him roughly. "tum ne aise soch bhi kaise liya ki tum hare jaane se sab teekh hoga?" he questioned her angrily. khushi luked at him puzzled. "naani ne mujhe sab kuch batha diya...how dare u? tumari himmat kaisi hui mujhe chod kar jaane ki bareme soch ne ki?" he asked pained. " hume aap ki sawal ka jawab dene keliye koi zaroorath nahi" she said lukin away with equal anger. arnav calmed himslf down. "khushi tumare jaane se kuch teekh nahi hogi...shyam achcha insaan nahi banega" he said. " hume patha hain. lekin humare jaane se kum se kum di ko apne bhai toh milengi" khushi said. " aapka pura dhayan di par hona hain...aur agar main yaha rahoon toh yeh ho nahi sakta." she said. "khushi...tum...tum nahi jaa sakte...i won't let u" arnav said. "aap hume roke ya na...hum jaarahi hoon. issime sab ki khushi hain" she said stubbornly. "khushi zidh math karo...main tume jaane nahi doonga...tumne ek baar bhi mere bare socha hain kya? tum jaao gi toh main khushi kaise rahoonga?" he asked pleadinly. "agar aapki di dukhi hain toh aap bhi dukhe honge.aur agar main yaha rahoongi toh aap ki di kabhi khushi nahi hongi."with th hushi left arnav standing by the pool...hurt and confused.

in the morning
arnav woke up to find khushi missing from their bed. he got up and chcked the bathroom. it was empty, it was 6.30am in the morning. "khushi ithni jaldi mujhe bina bathaye nahi jaa sakti" he thot 2 himslf n ran outside. he chckd the poolside. no sing of khushi. he chckd naani's room. he chckd di's room. bt no sign of khushi. he ran downstairs. he lukd everywhere bt he ddnt find khushi. he met naani mear the kitchen. "naani...woh khushi..." he askd dreading her answer. "woh chote...khushi bitiya subha subha buaji ki ghar gayi..." she said placin a hand on his shoulder. "dammit!" he said n strtd dialing her phone. aftr 5 rings she picked up." khushi kumari gupta singh raizada how dare u leave? tum kaha hoon???? buaji ki ghar. wait there...main aa raha hoon." he said angrily to the phone. "aap ko di ke saath hona hain. aap yaha math aaiye...di ko aap ki zaroorath hain." she said calmly. "khushi aur mujhe tumhari zaroorath hain...khushi wapas ghar aao...warna main kuhd aa kar tumhe utah kar le aaongi." he threatened. "aap aise kuch nahi karnge...aap ko humari kasam" khushi said. "khushi...pls dnt do this..." arnav pleaded. "achcha hum rakthe hain arnav ji...baad main baath karengi" the line went dead. arnav closed his eyes to control himslf. "chote? aap ithni subha uth gaye..." arnav turned arnd to see anjali holdin a thal in her hand. " acha hua...tum mere saath mandir jaane aaoge?" she asked. arnav nodded.
at buaji's house
"arre sanka devi...akele kyun aai? damad ji ko bhi saath lekar aai toh achcha hota" buaji said. "woh bhi aana chahate the par unko kuch zaroori kam aagaya..." khushi lied. she was determined to keep all this a secret from her family.
arnav enters the room n removes his coat. he luked around for his towel bt couldnt find t. "khushi mera towel kaha hain???" it was only when he finished the sentence he remmbrd khushi ws not there. "yeh lo chote tumhari towel." he turned to see anjali holdin out her towel. he ws sure tht anjali heard his callin khushi bt ws tryin to ignore t. " tum fresh ho ke aajao. main tumhare liye kheer banai" she smiled n lft. "kheer" he muttered and remmbrd the tym khushi made him kheer. he went to the cupboard to pick out sum clothes. as he opened it he remmbrd khushi hiding in the cupboard. he shook his head n wlkd toward the bathroom. as his hand reached the door knob he rembbrd thm fightin to use the bathroom. he smiled at the memories. bt the smile disprd as he remmbrd she ws nt around. yes, arnav was missing his wife badly

the same night
arnav ate without paying much attention. his mind was on khushi. as di smiled at him, he forced himslf 2 smile bck. all he cld rmmbr ws his khushi. "di aapko araam ki zaroorath hain" he said to a chatty anjali. "lekin chote...tum bohot dino ki baad mere paas aai ho..."she said.when arnav heard those words t flt a knife went thru his heart. how can his di treat khushi lyk this? he wondered. bt nw was not the tym to question. "di aap ko jo baath karni hain aap kal karo...ab aap pls araam karo" he forced his di to her bed n tucked her in. "chote, aaj bohot dino ki baad hum khush hain...humare chote jo wapas aai apne di ke paas... aap bhi khush ho na chote?" anjali asked holding his hand. he feared he might say the wrong thng so he jst nodded. arnav ws glad his di ws hppy bt the idea of being away from khushi made his heart burn in pain.
aftr di fell aslp, arnav slowly wlkd bck to his room n got into bed. he lukd at the empty side of the bed where normally khushi would b fast aslp by this tym. he cldnt bear not having her around. he hdnt seen her for the entire day n he felt incmplt. he needed to see her. he needed his dose of khushi. arnav pushed off the cover n got out f bed, determined.
in gupta house
khushi lukd at the clock...it was almst midnight. she hdnt seen arnav since she sneaked out early in the morning. she missed him. bt his n di's happiness was far more important than how she flt. she picked up her phone to call him but changed her mind. "kya kare devi maiyya...hume unki bohot yaad aathi hain"she tld DM.
thn suddenly there ws a knock on the window. her heart skipped a beat. was t a thief? she wondered. she slwly wlkd towrds the window n hid behind the curtains. there was another knock. she slowly peeped outside while still hiding in the curtains to find arnav lukin at her with a smile. "AAP?" she shouted. arnav motioned her to keep quiet. she covered her mouth n hurriedly opened the window. "aap yaha kya kar rahe hain? aur iss waqt? " she asked as arnav climbed in thru the window. "tumhari yaad aane lagi. toh main ne socha ki main tume milne aao" he replied." aap ko di ke saath hona chaiyye."she said lukin away. "di so gayi...usko sone keliye meri zaroorath nahi hain...jaise ki mujhe sone keliye tumhari zaroorath hain" he smiled mischvsly. khushi lukd at him wide eyed. "toh aap ko kirkhise aana tha kya?" she asked. "main ne socha ki window se aao gi toh thoda romantic hoga...kyun?" he started wlkin towards her. "toh tumne mujhe miss kiya?" he askd. "hum? nahi toh..."she answered goin bckwrds. "toh tum apne devi maiyya ko kya bol rahi thi?"he askd smilin. "aap...aap wapas jaaiye...aapko di ke saath rehena hain" she used the only excuse tht came to her mind. "di ke paas naani hain, maami hain, akash hain, payal hain n NK bhi hain...par agar tum chahati hoon toh main chalta hoon..."he said with a sad face. arnav turned to leave. he almst climbd the window when khushi stpd him. "arnav ji" arnav gv a victorious smile. she came to him. "arnav ji...aap..."she said."ha main kya khushi?" he asked expctantly. "aap jaa rahe toh kum se lkum darwase se jaao" she said with a triumphant smile. here he came in the middle of the night to see khushi n she was makin fun of his. he grabbed her hand n bent her hand behind her n pulled her towrds him. "tume hasi aarahi rahi hain?" he askd her thru gritted teeth. "arnav ji...chodiye hume..." she squirmed. "nahi chodunga... phele mujhe chod kar chali aayi...ab mere mazak uda rahi hoon...no khushi kumari gupta singh raizada...badla toh main lekar rahoon ga" he said releasing her hand bt grabing he by the waist. he pushed her towards the wall. she found her self sandwiched between the wall n arnav's heaving chest. she struggled to get out bt she was pressed harded towards the wall by arnav. he bent down n kissed her nck deeply breathin her in. he moved his lips down her collar bone. khushi shivered. she stppd fightin. as he kissed her shoulders she gave in and gripped a handful of his shirt at the shoulders with both her hands. she flt arnav smile on her skin pleased with her reaction. he pulled away. "main ne badla le liya...ab main chalta hoon..." he wlkd 2wrds the door. khushi ws lft shocked. she lukd at him n saw tht he ws really abt to leave.
arnav ws about to open the door when khushi put her hand on the door sppin him. he smiled. he tried opening the other half of the door. khushi put her other hand n blckd him. he turned around. before he could take in khushi's exprssion she trppd him n a tight hug. he hugged her bck with pleasure swelling him. "aap ne kaise soch liya ki hume aapki yaad nahi aayege?" khushi askd pouting aftr she pulled away from the hug. her hands were still around his nck n his hands were on her hips. "sorry...".he apolgzd khushi buried her face in his chest takin him in. "khushi its 12.30. i thnk hume sojana chaiyye..."he said. she lukd up..."aap jaarahe ho?" she asked. "khushi maine kab jaane baath ki? i said we shld get sum sleep." he smiled n liftes her in his arms. "aap yaha soyenge?"she askd pointin at her bed. "haa kyun?" he askd while placin her on the bed. "par aapko ghar jaana nahi?" she inquired wtchin him layin beside her. "kal subha jaaonga" he said. "waise bhi tumhare bina mujhe neend nahi aathi" arnav lukd at his wife to see a tear roll down her cheek. "khushi tum ro kyun rahi hoon?" he askd worried. "she smiled as he wiped off her tear. "aap humse ithna pyar kyun karte hain?" she askd with innocent eyes. "bas karta hoon..."arnav whispered his answer. he put his arm around her so tht her bck ws in contact with his chest. he kissed her nck once more. "aur hamesha karta rahoon ga..." he whispered in her ear as the fell asleep drowned in love and warmth.
