Chapter 17 : Romance in Nainital (Part B)
In RM Mansion :
Shyam was very much disturbed that khushi had to leave with arnav to nainital. The thought of her being alone with him made shyam lose his temper. But what could he do. Instead he made the most nasty decision of his life. He showed all his frustration on anjali.Anjali was casually talking to shyam regarding arnav and khushi. Shyam was pissed off and he started shouting at anjali. Due to his anger he blunted out that khushi is not suitable for arnav and he cannot see khushi with arnav. Saying anjali was shocked hearing his confession about khushi would be an understatement, unknowingly shyam himself had sown the seed of doubt in her mind. To cope up the mess he just said sorry and he shouted because of work tension and stormed out of RM.
At Nainital :
Arnav woke up by the constant ringing of his phone alarm. He opened his eyes slowly and saw that there was something soft next to him. Infact somone rather than something. He turned his head to his left side to find khushi resting her head on his chest. Her hand clutched on his shirt.He slowly he released her hand from his shirt and then placed her head on the soft pillow and got up and went to have shower. By the time he came out khushi had woken up and was waiting for him to come out. She had ordered the breakfast and tea and black coffee for arnav.He came out and saw khushi.
Arnav : Good morning khushi.
Khushi : good morning arnav. Actually is it possible to buy some warm clothes since its getting cold.
Arnav : Sure.. First get ready then we can finish the meeting and then we can go for shopping. In the meantime you can use my jurkin.
Khushi : Thanks Arnav. U have your breakfast in the meantime i will get ready.
Arnav : Ok..
Saying this he moves to the bathroom. After sometime he comes out and sees khushi confused thinking in front of the closet. He just tells her that the meeting is formal and she can wear anything she is fine with.
Khushi takes a pink anarkali dress and moves into the bathroom. Arnav checks the required documents needed for the meeting. In the meantime, lavanya calls arnav.
Lavanya : Hello ASR.. Good Morning.
Arnav: good mrng Lavanya. Did you reach mumbai. Make sure you finalise the things.
La: Ok ASR you need not worry. i am just worried how khushi will manage there.
Arnav: U no need to worry abt it since i am here with her. Anyways i will call u later. bye.

She cuts the call and starts fuming thinking what arnav spoke.Khushi comes out and sees arnav stil in the room.
Khushi : Arnav, i am sorry are we getting late. Come lets have breakfast and leave for the meeting.
Arnav: Relax khushi, there is still time. Come first lets have breakfast.
Khushi & Arnav have their breakfast,khushi is all the tiime nervous. arnav sees this and tells her not to worry much, since he is also with her and not to worry.
They reach the conference room booked in the hotel. Khushi slowly starts her practise to give the presentation.Arnav sees this and smiles thinking how innocent and how tensed she is.Meanwhile Mr.Mittal arrives the hotel and he is guided to the hotel conference room.

They greet each other and then move out of the conference room. On the way to their suite.
Khushi : OMG Aranv.. I am really shocked that i could give such a presentation. I mean in college i have given presentations but no like this. I was scared where you might loose the deal cuz of my carelessness.

But no response from khushi. Arnav gets doubt, He touches her forehead & is shocked to see that she is having fever. He then realises that she doesnot have any warm clothes. He calls the reception asking for doctor.
The doctor arrives after half an hour and examines her.
Doctor : She has fever due to cold climate. Keep her warm and give her these medicines. Dont worry Mr. Raizada she will be fine by tomorrow.
Aranv :Thank you doctor.
He gives the prescription to the room boy and askes him to get the tablets.He calls delhi and informs the same to naani.

Shyam is fully tensed and frustrated.Aranv moves to bathroom and gets a bowl of cold water and dips a cloth and places it on her forehead.He sends mail to aman and shuts his laptop. He repeats keeping the cloth on her forehead. nad check the temperature. After sometime khushi starts stirring in sleep calling her amma & baabuji name.
Arnav: Khushi, Khushi.. Once when you are fine we can speak to them. Can you hear me khushi.
Khushi still keeps calling her parents name. Arnav tries to keep her warm by rubbing her hand. Slowly she sleeps.Later he orders the dinner to their room. He wakes up khushi.
Aranv :Khushi wake up. Have your dinner and then you need to have your medicine also.
Khushi tries to get up from the bed but then falls. Arnav holds her and makes her to sit.
Khushi : Arnav i want to go to bathroom.
Arnav helps her till the bathroom door.
Aranv :Khushi dont close the door. I will wait here. If you need me then i will come in.
In the meantime the dinner arrives. Aranv opens the door and asks the room boy to keep the dinner in the living room. He then goes to check khushi, Arnav sees the door still open.He waits on the bed. Even after 15 mins khushi doesnt come out. He slowly knocks the door, but no response.
Arnav :Khushi. Khushi are you ok.. Can i come inside.
He enters the bathroom and gets shocked seeing khushi lying on the floor unconcious. He lifts her to the bed and covers her with the quilt and starts rubbing her hands calling her name.After sometime she slowly opens her eyes.
Khushi : Aranv... I am not able to...
Arnav : Shhh.. Relax khushi. Wait i will get you the soup. HAve it and then have your medicines and then you take complete rest.
Khushi : Waht about your work.. I am sorry arnav.

Arnav gets the dinner to room and slowly feeds khushi. She finishes her soup, then little sandwitches. He gives her the medicine. After sometime she sleeps. Aranv covers her fully with the quilt and has his dinner.
He again starts keeping cold cloth on her forehead and then after sometime feels that temperature reducing. So sleeps next to her.
