Uh-oh! Lord Arnav is lost for words for the time being. I can only imagine his reaction upon hearing that our dear Khushi is bathing. His facial expressions ... a sight to see He was already having a hard time trying to control those desires that were rising within him time to time ... but after hearing she was bathing, woah ... well it was a case of "if you cannot beat them, join them." Though they both weren't actually bathing together in close proximity, I can't help but feel that for the First Lord ... this somewhat seems like something intimate in a sense. He isn't one to show his feelings and emotions to others, well ... apart from anger ... but here he is bathing at the same time as Khushi, in the same waters as Khushi ... all the while knowing that she is there too.
It was pretty decent of him if I do say so myself that he moved away from the curtain and bathed well away from her. His reason for doing so maybe to get away from those desires, perhaps to tame a little bit of the beast within him ... for her sake or his ...
Khushi seems to be concerned not too much about him bathing, but him catching a cold. Its funny how she accepts that he did infact bathe away from her and not near her. Trusting. Kinda sweet Bless her.
Its ironic how the First Lord doesn't want to touch the blanket belonging to Khushi, yet he allows his hair to be dried by it ... and not only that ... but also the person doing the drying is non other than the person who he so apparently dislikes. The way he says,
"I suppose I can let my hair be dried by that blanket ..."
makes it look as though he is doing her a favour of drying his hair. Jeeez man! You aren't doing her a favour, she is doing you one. Pffft!
How convenient ... hmmm ... Arnav isn't one to bow, nor kneel infront of anyone let alone Khushi ... He hoists up the girl who he apparently dislikes ever so much, touching her, feeling her presense be known to him, smell her freshly bathed skin so close to himself ... Then when his hair is dried, instead of dropping her roughly like you'd expect him to once his motive of getting his hair dried would be served, he glidesss her along his body. I mean this is sheer torture for not only himself, but Khushi too. The man has some unique sense of logic, I'll give him that
After the little tennis match between the hermit and the First Lord, well for me ... it was pretty amusing reading it. A little bit of banter ... nothing like it and especially when the usually arrogant, Mr-I-Am-Sooo-Right-Without-A-Doubt actually didn't elongate this match when he could've. He actually saw logic in what the hermit had to say. I find it pretty sweet how after hearing the logic behind what the hermit had to say, Lord Arnav turned to see Khushi ... perhaps to take in her reaction or lack of it ... maybe to consider her even for a few seconds ... or just to make sure that she wouldn't kick up a fuss of staying the night, especially near him.
Who would've thought that the hermits retorts would've irked Lord Arnav more than Khushi's ... I for one am pretty shocked! Having said that, atleast she doesn't irritate him as much as the hermit does. A relief of sorts.
It came down to them having to stay the night in the forest and neither Arnav nor Khushi were looking forward to it. She sort comfort in having him there with her whilst she slept, of all the people ... him. It just goes to show that she somewhat does trust him enough for him to stay in the room with her whilst she slept and he ... well he just admired her didn't he ... he took in her fill with those sharp eyes of his ... looking at the beauty that lay there, having faith that he was there and so she felt protected. This was pretty damn beautiful!
A thought that came to mind whilst reading this was seeing the First Lord as a hunter, warrior, a protector. He was extremely quick in catching up with the creature and froze after seeing it. It seems that the only questions that he was thinking of was the whys and not thw whats, hows, whos etc ... doesn't appear to be shocked by it. At this point, I felt a tug in my heart for him ...
I don't picture the hard faced, arrogant exterior that he portrays ... instead a vulnerable, helpless young man ...
Chapter 116 & 117
Buaji really does seem like a leader in this update. Instead of wailing, she jumps into trying to fix the issue at hand and rightly so. They don't know where she is, with who, etc but as they say, no time like the present. So better to try and find her as soon as possible.
Once Payal and her father reached the Raizada quarters, a lot of things took place. One, I think Khushi's father was shocked to see Lady Anjali and after asking her about her brothers, I'm sure he was glad that he didn't give his daughters hand to General Jha. Wise choice. He went with his feeling, whoch turned out to be correct. Then Payal injuring herself and the ever pleasant Lord Aakash aiding her Oh yes! Time for the two to get that litttle bit more comfortable with one another As for Lady Manorama, well she just thinks that she is quite something ... as well as that Miss Payal is trying to charm her way into her sons life. Quite the contrary. He seems to be the one doing the not too subtle chasing.
Pretty gentlemanly behavious coming from the First Lord by him taking Khushi's hand in his helping her into the cart. Rare to say the least. Though his behaviour in regards with Khushi seems to be rare and he behaves somewhat out of the ordinary when around the beauty. Then him holding her hand tightly, as though he wanted to keep the memory and the imprint of her touch on his very skin, soul and mind. Amazing. A sort of final farewell. The man in question and his reasoning ... ah what can I say about that ... he's one piece in the whole world He's concerned for her, its clear especially after reading his final farewell words to her ... She must be very confused
Woah! I have finally found enough time to comment as I wanted to in regards with the recent updates. I am well thankyou. I hope you are fine too ... I missed your presence on here too. It was only yesterday that I was going to PM you to ask how you were doing, but it looks like you beat me to it! Damn! Anyway, I'd like to say best wishes for the festive season. Have a wonderful time with your family.
