Keeping the window open and folding her arms across her chest, Megha watched the mother nature pouring her blessings in form of heavy rainfall. As the raindrops caressed the soft skin of her face, she smiled delightfully, stretched her arms outside and closed her eyes to feel the wonderful weather.
Just at the moment, Mohan came out of the washroom while wiping the water on his face with the towel that was hanging on his shoulder. He beamed dreamily to see Megha looking ever so graceful and angelic with the droplets of the rain on her face. Slowly and steadily, he walked towards her. "you look even more beautiful with those raindrops on your face." he sensuously whispered near her ears.
Megha opened her eyes, her smile widened in bliss and her cheeks turned red. She steadily turned around and looked in his eyes. Her heart beats fluttered to see his passionate gaze stuck on her.
"I want to confess something." Mohan said to her in the most loving tone, while holding her arms sweetly and gently. Megha silently stared in her eyes devotedly and waited for him to speak further.
"i.. i didn't even realize when you started mattering a lot to me.. more than anyone and anything else! i just cannot tolerate to see you sad and think of different ways to make you smile.. i.. i want to tell you that.. i.. i love you!" Mohan said to her softly, gazing in her eyes and paused to let her break her silence.
Megha grinned broader as she felt herself the most blessed woman on earth at the moment. She instantly pulled him in a tight embrace. "i love you too, Mohan! i love you a lot!" she exclaimed in overwhelming joy with all the affection in the world. Mohan hugged her immediately and the hug became tighter as each second passed by.
The rainfall stopped, but by then, since they were standing near the window, they were drenched completely.
They broke their hug after a few minutes. Before they could say anything further, they broke in a giggle just after they sneezed together. "i think we should go and get changed before we get ill with fever together!" Mohan suggested while laughing. Megha nodded smilingly and headed towards the cupboard, and at the same time, Mohan went to the washroom.
Mohan came out of the washroom, while smiling as he was floating in his own world of thoughts and dreams. "Mohan, help me in t..tying this d..dori please!" Megha asked in an adoring voice and brought him out of his trance.
Mohan walked to her with a content expression on his face. As he approached near her and placed his fingers on her back, she shivered slightly and closed her eyes. He tied the dori, while adorning her with his tender-filled gaze. "done!" he said after finishing the task and rushed to his bed.
Megha opened her eyes and stood stunned for a while, disappointed to see Mohan already sleeping on the bed. She had so many plans for the night, but Mohan chopped all of it. "boring!" she called him in her mind with an innocent anger.
Mohan sneakily opened an eye and looking at Megha's angry expressions, he had a hard time to suppress his laughter.
Megha laid on the bed beside him but facing the other side. "sleep, Megha! not everything happens the way you would want! after all, you're the wife and he's your husband, so obey him!" she told herself mockingly and closed her eyes after turning off the light.
Mohan turned towards Megha and chuckled seeing her facing towards the direction of the wall. Without giving a second thought, he snuggled up to her, slid his arms around her waist and pulled her closer.
Megha was startled. She opened her eyes and froze for a moment in disbelief. She could not understand her darling husband, she thought and smiled as she felt the heaven to be in the arms of her husband, the man who became the world to her, whom she began to love.
"stop smiling and sleep!" Mohan said with a teasing smile and urged Megha to come a little closer by tightening his grip around her waist.
Megha understood and she moved back smilingly. "i'm sure now you can sleep well too!" she mischievously smiled as she said that.
Mohan nuzzled his face in her long, silky hairs. "for sure i can sleep perfectly in this way! in fact, i shall have the best sleep ever tonight!" he teased in a sleepy tone.
Megha sighed in pleasure, closed her eyes, placed her hand over his and entwined their fingers. "i'm going to have the best sleep ever as well!" she whispered in a drowsy voice and fell asleep.
"Megha! Give me the towel." Mohan yelled from inside the bathroom, keeping the door slightly open and his hand stretched out.
Megha walked up to him and handed him the towel and taking the complete advantage of this moment, Mohan grabbed her arms. "want to come inside?" he naughtily asked.
"yeah sure!" Megha happily affirmed with a mischievous look and stepped ahead to go inside.
Mohan hurriedly closed the door to prevent her from entering. "are you actually serious, Megha? I mean, really?" he questioned in astonishment from inside the bathroom.
Megha started laughing. "you yourself w..wanted me to c..come inside!" she innocently reminded him, standing outside.
"i was just teasing you idiot!"
"but i was damn serious, Mohan!" Megha said in a high-pitched voice while faking seriousness and laughed her heart out.
Mohan came out of the washroom in a black vest and a white towel and looked at her in annoyance. "stop laughing at me like that!" he authoritatively said.
Megha pressed her palm on her lips yet she could not suppress her giggle, and finally Mohan broke in a chuckle as well, seeing her in that way. He grabbed her wrist and pulled her towards him. "i can make a joke of myself a million times to see you smiling and laughing like this!" he affectionately said in a soft tone.
Megha was awed to hear him, but before she could say anything to him, her phone rang. "leave me! phone is ringing!" she casually said.
Mohan freed her with a joyful smile on his face, and she received the call. "hello!" Her expressions changed from happy to worry, which made Mohan confused. "what happened?" he came to her and asked her.
Megha looked at him with a depressed expression. "maa is ill with fever! dad is out of town for sometime and chutki needs me! i need to go there asap!"
Mohan's face fell instantly to know about his mother-in-law and also as Megha would be staying away from him for a couple of days in another city. He frowned more to realize that neither he could drop her to her place since he had few important meetings the entire day nor he could stay with her since he was busy with an important project.
"i'm sorry! i can't go! i have an important meeting that i can't postpone!" Mohan said in guilt and sadness but quickly held back his feelings as he did not want to make Megha upset more. "i'll get your ticket to mumbai flight immediately! go there and take care of maa!" he half-heartedly said and hugged her at the same time. "i'll miss you!" he added, in a gloomy voice.
Preview of Ch 11:
Megha takes care of her mother, while Mohan stays busy in his project, but both are missing each other. Later, they talk on phone the entire night.
So who did not expect the confession? Hope you all enjoyed! For now, the focus would be on their relationship and later it would be again on Megha's work life and Mohan helping her out. Flood in with your comments please!
