WARNING: [PG Rated]
Many of u might be a little
scandalised by this one.. I simply drafted it coz I wanted to put in a naughty-sweet one to cheer you guys up..
**Inspiration: Personal experience; Dedicated to the two
awesomest men in my life! I've
tortured my best friend for chocolate walnut cake and brownies while back at Uni.. Poor chap used to get it for me in the middle of the night!.. i love
And my fianc, for putting up with my
tantrums when I'm sulking.. muah :-* baby!
Oh and well, the credits for the name also go to both of them; they'd named it years back! Oh and yea, the name is definitely a spoof (PUN INTENDED, you see.. ) Hope you got it!
Prologue: Sikandar has been dealt with;
Arjun is moving on in life..
Riya has finally realised that she loves him and
her feelings are definitely more than mere hero-worship!
Well, for Arjun's feelings; nay! Not
revealing.. Ab sab bata diya toh os kaun padhega?!!
She cleared her throat and reached out for
the glass of water for the third time in 15 minutes. Rathod threw his pen down on the table in frustration and
looked away annoyed.. Chottu and Shree exchanged their usual quizzical glances
and stared at her with an open mouth..
HE had been noticing her since last
evening; she had been acting.. uhm..well weird! ; he shook his head slightly.
Yes, that's the word!
Arjun crossed his arms across his chest and buried his
face in the file; stealing occasional glances at her while trying not to be
She gulped down the entire glass of chilled
water and sighed; Riya looked up to find her team mates staring at her
She bit her lip and silently apologised to Rathod; next she turned
sideways and glared at Shree and Chottu with a 'stop-staring-at-me or you're
dead meat' look and was about to pick up her favourite pink pen to jot down
notes, when she felt his gaze on herself.
Her head shot up and she looked
straight into his eyes; he looked concerned. Her resolve was faltering; she
hadn't intended to be mean to him; it's just that things were beyond her
control! And the very next moment, some insane spirit took over her and she
shot him a 'no-nonsense' look and turned away flaring her nostrils.
ACP Arjun Rawte had been a seasoned officer
serving in the police force for over 8 years now. He could smell a criminal
from a distance and possessed the uncanny ability to look through people.
However, when it came to a certain Miss Mukherjee, his senses ceased to work!
And an apparently vestigial organ in his body, would respond by thudding
He stole another glance at her and found
her fuming; his mind drifted back to their last night's conversation. She was
fine, back then; he wondered what had happened overnight!
They were brought out of their reveries by
a shrill ringtone; Rathore answered his phone and punched the wall, 'Dammit! Ek
toh yeh saara paperwork pending hai.. Tum mein se kissi ne bhi apne records
file nahi kiye hain ab tak, upar se Commissioner sahab ne mujhe abhi milne
Chottu and Shree gulped and looked at
Arjun, silently pleading him to save their skins.
Arjun smirked and blinked his
eyes and stood up to face his Chief, 'Rathod, tum jaao.. Main hoon yahan par..
I'll see to it ki yeh sab apna kaam waqt par khatam kar de..'
Rathod sighed, he was sure Arjun would make
sure that they finish their work in time, but he now had another concern.
Rathod stood up, and placed his palms on the desk, 'Rawte, mujhe yakeen hai, ki
tum inpar watch toh rakhoge, lekin tumhare records ka kya? Pichli teen cases
mein tumne jo goliyaan chalayi hain, unke records kahan hain? Humein upar
jawaab dena padta hai.. Ab sab humari tarah toh tumhari ankahi baatein samajh
nahi sakte na?'
Chottu and Shree looked at each other
amused, while Riya let out a slight chuckle.
Arjun heard her and turned to face
her, faking anger and annoyance on his face expecting to make her nervous as
always. But he was slightly taken aback when he saw her glaring at him with a
murderous expression on her otherwise docile face.
Rathod and Arjun were still discussing the
details of a previous case, when they heard a knock on the door. Riya's
assistant, Shailesh walked in; 'Ma'am, aapke chocolate brownie ki delivery aa
gayi hai.. Aapke cabin mein bhijva doon?'
She shook her head vigourously and snapped
at him, 'Ab jaake aaya hai! Maine tumhe aadhe ghante pehle order karne ko kaha
tha.. Take it back.. Aur haan, order a strawberry and white chocolate
cheesecake for me, now!!'
She walked back to her seat and fished out
a chocolate bar from her pocket; the four men stared at her with open mouths!
Shree and Chottu looked at Arjun with their eyes popped out; while Rathore's
gaze alternated between Riya and Arjun and finally ended on Arjun; he poked his
arm with a finger and whispered, 'What's wrong?'
Arjun looked baffled; and got irritated
when everyone expected him to answer for her absurd behaviour. He shot Rathod
an annoyed look, only to be silenced by his order, 'Find out what it is! This
is an office, for crying out loud. I want all the work done, by the time I get
Arjun spat out a 'Yes Sir' at him and
walked to her; the other two followed Rathod out of the conference room,
leaving the duo to settle scores.
Arjun grabbed a chair and plopped down on
it, opposite her; he saw her struggling with the wrapper. He grabbed it, tore
it open and held it out for her; she snatched it swiftly, turned away and
Arjun was slowly losing his patience with
her now; he placed his palms on both arms of her chair, blocking her and looked
up at her, 'What's wrong?'
Riya looked up at him with narrowed eyes,
with a slight frown on her face.
Arjun felt his heart skip a beat, No! Don't
let her do that to you! You're at work! And supposed to be her boss!
He balled his fist and stood up, spinning the chair behind him. He was losing
it; how was he supposed to reprimand her for her carelessness, when she looked
absolutely delectable with that slight pout.
But then again, today just wasn't his day;
Riya stood up and grabbed her stuff from the table. He spun around upon hearing
her walk away; he called out to her.
She halted in her tracks and turned back,
'I want to be left alone. I'll be in my cabin.. The file will be on your desk
within 2 hours, SIR!'
She walked away swaying her hips and Arjun
stood dumbstruck at her callousness.. He shook his head, Something was
terribly wrong with her!
He looked around the room and realised that
he had just been snubbed by his junior; he picked up his pistol, stuffed it
into the back of his denims and walked away, not before kicking the door shut!
Few hrs later,
Arjun had been compiling reports when he
heard frantic knocks on his cabin door; he looked up worried and before he
could utter a plain 'Come-in', Shree sprinted towards him and stood before him
Arjun knitted his eyebrows in confusion and
offered him a glass of water.
Shree sipped on it and burst out, 'Sir! You won't
believe; aaj main lunch mein Riya ka favourite Tilapia Jhol laya tha, lekin
usne touch bhi nahi kiya..
Arjun looked up worried, Riya refused to
He looked up at Shree concerned who seemed
to have understood his chain of thoughts and nodded.
Arjun stood up and placed the file back,
'toh usne lunch..'
Shree gulped 'kiya na, woh apne gate pe jo
golgappewala hai na, uske paas se do plate golgappe mangaakar!'
Arjun dropped the file on the floor and
stared at Shree with an open mouth, clearly fumbling for words.
seemed to understand his dilemma yet again and nodded, 'Extra khatti chutney ke
Arjun was baffled by now! She hated unhygienic roadside food.. Every
time she visited a restaurant, she would look around, inspect the waiter's
hands, insist that they wear gloves and serve her.. and the same Riya Mukherjee
was gobbling roadside golgappe?'
He sighed and motioned Shree to leave
assuring him silently that he would deal with it..
He packed his back and prepared to leave;
he glanced at the photoframe perched on top of his desk; 'Riyaaa... This
woman was going to be the end of Arjun Rawte!'
He sprinted up the stairs towards the
research department and an array of thoughts flashed in his mind; He was sure
she was tensed, he needed to help her.
But how was that even possible, she had
pushing him away since morning and had even scowled at him for no reason!
He finally made up his mind and pushed the
door open; the sight that greeted him made him chuckle slightly.
He saw her perched on top of her desk, munching
on cheese-crackers; she looked adorable. He stepped closer to her and saw her
Riya wasn't sure what he was upto, when he
rested his hands on either side of hers, trapping her.
She raised an eyebrow
and looked up at him quizzically waiting for an answer; but the unexpected
Arjun had leaned over her and before she knew it, he had planted a
moist kiss on her cheek.
Riya dropped the bag of cheese-crackers on the floor
and her palm went up to touch her cheek; she was stunned out of her wits!
Arjun smirked and decided to take advantage
of the deviation; he quickly dumped her cell phone into her bag and was
prepared to whisk her away.
She felt a tug at her arm and saw him
standing next to her, with their bags flung over his shoulder; she couldn't
help but smile at the thought of the tough cop, ACP Arjun Rawte carrying a
Burberry Leather Clutch.
He saw her open her mouth to protest and
silenced it with a soft gaze, very well aware that she wouldn't refuse him.
Riya sighed in defeat and followed him out
of the office; his anger she could deal with; it was these little things that
he did, that rendered her helpless!
She stood at the exit of the parking lot
waiting for him; she usually followed him inside, but decided to skip it today.
Arjun marched away and was back with the car in a few minutes.
He was about to
open the door for her; when she unlocked it herself and seated herself. He
shook his head and resumed driving.
The journey was quite boring; since Riya
suddenly seemed interested in observing roadside shops and pedestrians walking
on the footpath, much to his annoyance.
Finally, not being able to bear her silence
anymore, he hit the brakes and the car came to a screeching halt. She glanced
at him and turned away; Arjun had had enough!
He held her arm and yanked her
roughly towards himself, she lost her balance and landed on his chest, the
every next instant. Hooking his index finger under her chin, he tilted her face
slightly to meet his and whispered, 'Baat kya hai Riya?'
He saw her eyelashes flutter and before he
could fathom that lost expression in her eyes, her eyes had brimmed with tears.
Arjun gently pressed her arm and lifted his other hand to cup her face. She wriggled
and finally managed to free herself from his grip and leaned on the closed
window. He felt a stinging pain in a far corner of his chest, when she had
yanked her hand away from his.
Arjun frowned and clutched the gear clearly
annoyed; he drove through the empty lanes like a maniac, venting his
frustration out on the poor accelerator.
He was about to pull into the gates; when
he heard her sob. He hit the brakes on instinct and the car halted with a jerk.
He shook his head and turned to face her once more; managing a composed voice
finally, he spoke, 'Riya! For God's sake, batao baat kya hai?'
She sniffed and looked up at him through
teary eyes, 'Mujhe lychee khaani hai..'
That was the moment, Arjun wanted to jump
in front of a speeding train; he glared at her with a half-amused
Finding his voice back, he spoke again, 'Lychees,
iss mausam mein?'
She nodded her head and threw her hair
He blinked his eyes and sighed, 'Riya,
lekin iss mausam mein lychees kahan milengi?'
She frowned and turned away from him as if
expecting his response.
He had just unbuckled his seat-belt was
about to step down to speak to her, when he saw her push the door open and step
She grabbed her bag from the dashboard and
walked away furiously. He sprinted behind her and grabbed her arm, 'Riyaaa...
Ab kya hua?'
She spun on her heel and freed herself from
his grip yet again; fighting back her tears she managed to mumble, 'You don't
love me, do you?'
Arjun was left flabbergasted as she almost
ran in through the gates rubbing her forearm.
He walked back to the car defeated and saw
his reflection in the mirror; without a second thought, he kicked the tyre so
hard that he was sure he was going to have a sore foot in a while.
somehow it didn't hurt him; he turned back to look at her apartment, this is
why; her tears hurt him more!
He slumped down on the seat and rested his
head on the steering wheel; the entire day's events flashed in front of his
eyes, and then it struck him..
He jerked back and hit his head on the wheel,
a little too hard, 'Aaoww'. He glanced at the empty seat next to him and
Oh oh! All this craving, outbursts,
anxiety, mood swings?? ACP Arjun Rawte, Samjhe
ya.. Aha.. Samajh gaya!
He quickly shifted gears and headed back
Riya unlocked the main door and dragged
herself into the apartment; she flung the bag somewhere on the floor and
slumped on the couch. What had she done? Why had she vented out at him?
She gasped and clutched her head, Gosh!
She was an emotional wreck!'
She heard the doorbell ring and ran to open
it; Arjun walked past her and went straight into the bedroom.
She followed him
and had just parted her lips to speak, when she saw him pick up a towel and
walk into the washroom.
She sighed and grabbed her clothes from the
closet and walked to the other washroom.
She walked out, feeling refreshed and saw
him sprawled on the couch with the TV remote ; he seemed to be engrossed in
watching some political tug-of-war.
She crouched on the carpet next to him; and
as if repulsed by her, Arjun swiftly got up and left the room.
Riya's mouth fell open at his indifference
and she slumped on the floor, resting her back against the couch and shut her
She felt him snake his arm around her waist
and slowly opened her moist eyelids; there he sat holding out a big bowl of her
favorite lychee ice-cream.
Her eyes lit up instantly and darted off to meet
his; he had a grin plastered on his handsome face.
He dipped the spoon in the bowl and held it
out for her; however she crossed her arms and turned away. He shook his head, You've
pissed her off again!
She saw him shrug his shoulders and the
spoon disappeared between his lips. She saw him lick the spoon clean and stared
at him with a raised brow. She watched his Adam's apple move as he swallowed
and felt a tingle in the pit of her stomach.
Arjun glanced at her from the corner of his
eyes and smirked inwardly, the plan seemed to be working!
He dipped the
spoon back into the bowl and offered it to her; before she could reach for it,
he pulled his hand back and hurriedly ate it up.
He pulled out the spoon slowly
from between his lips and sighed aloud, 'Now that's what you'd call ice-cream;
Creamy, sweet and topped with fresh pieces of lychee.'
He turned to face her,
'I get it now, why you seem to like it soo much!'
He felt Riya;s fingers curl around his and
snatch the bowl away from him; he smirked inwardly; so finally you've given
Alas, he was soon disappointed when he saw her lean to her side
and place the bowl on the coffee table next to the couch. He blinked his eyes
confused and met hers; her gaze was heavy and intense with pleasure that he
felt his heart skip a beat!
She snatched the spoon away from him; he
heard the metal hit the floor somewhere and widened his eyes in amusement.
swept her damp her to one side and leaned over him; Arjun responded by leaning
back, plopping himself on his elbow. He saw her smirk as she slowly attempted
to reduce the distance between them; Riya held his shoulder for support and let
go of her balance.
They had both tumbled on the carpet, with Riya on top of
Arjun; he smirked and tried to get up.
However she had other plans; she rested her
elbows on his chest and brought her face to his level; she breathed a kiss
against his jaw and felt him resist a shiver.
She cupped his face and made him look at
her; what he saw blew him away! She leaned further and rested her cheeks
against his, snuggling into him.
Arjun gave up; pretence wasn't helping! He
wrapped his arms around her waist and swiftly rolled on the carpet, bringing
his torso on top of hers.
He lifted her arms and put them around his neck; he
heard her chuckle. He lifted his eyes to look at her, her kohl-lined eyes were
glistening with pleasure; without wasting a fraction of a second anymore, Arjun
dipped his head and landed his lips on hers!
She gripped his neck tighter, pulling him
closer into herself, even as he practically devoured her. She sank into the
kiss, letting go of his neck only to entwine her fingers in his hair.
her respond and deepened the kiss; taking her to a whole new realm of passion.
When they finally came up for air, he slightly brushed her hair from her
flushed face and smiled, 'So, did you like the ice-cream, tonight?'
Riya pretended to frown and wriggled in his
arms; taken aback by the sudden change in her, he let go of her.
She walked to
the other end of the room swiftly and leaned against the bedroom door; she
lifted her eyes to meet his and raised her eyebrow, 'Not really!'
That was his
undoing! He reached her in a few steps and backed her against the doorframe;
however Riya was swifter this time.
She clutched his collar and pulled him in
for another session of ice-cream tasting.
They parted unwillingly, when Arjun's phone
vibrated in his trouser pocket. He glanced at the screen and clenched his eyes
shut, 'Bolo Rathod!'
Rathod banged the file on the desk and
barked into the phone, 'I knew it! Mujhe tumpe bharosa hi nahi karna chahiye
tha.. Sabki reports ready hai, sivay tumhari..'
Riya felt his jaw stiffen; she leaned
forward and grazed her cheek against his.
Arjun fumbled with the phone and
finally sighed, 'Rathod, can we have the firing tomorrow? I'm slightly occupied
at the moment!' and he threw the phone on the couch, leaving Rathod fuming with
Riya chuckled at his lack of control and
dragged him on the bed; before she knew it, he was lying on top of her, gazing
'So, shall we finish eating ice-cream, Mrs.
She winked at him and pulled him closer, 'My pleasure, Mr. Rawte!'
