Shashi stood with his wife and
children at the door'. Mano placed kalash with rice for Kavitha to
kick it and
enter'.she is entering her sasuraal for the first time'.
Aanchal performed the Aarti as
soon as Kavitha kicked the rice pot'.tears brimmed her eyes threatening to fall
at any moment'.Shashi felt proud'
"Bhai'bhabhi ke saath andar aiyiye" Aanchal
said while putting tika on their foreheads' she also did Aarti for Khushi,
Kruti, and kriti and welcomed them in'
Mayank arrived out of nowhere and
"Welcome home Shashi'." He said'.
"ab hi time mila apko aane ka'"pouted
Mano at her husband'
"Come in all of you let me
introduce all'"he said ignoring his wife's words'
Kavitha bent down to touch
Devyani's feet as soon as she entered inside'.
"arre bitiya'khush raho'."she
blessed placing her hand on Kavitha's head'
Everyone is seated in the sitting
room'The servant served them all orange juice'Mayank stood up'
"This is my long lost younger
brother Shashi'" he said addressing the family'
"'.and this is his wife kavitha'
this is Khushi'the eldest Daughter of Shashi and also this Gupta Parivaar'.
These two here are the twins Kruti and kriti'"
Now' "Children this is Devyani
gupta'our Mom and your Dadi'this is Mano my wife and your tai'she is Aanchal
bua'.our sweet sister'the two boys over there'"he said addressing Manvith and
Manish' "are your brothers manvith and Manish'and that grown one is Akash or
aki'son of Aanchal'the little girl is our pari'.Anjali'daughter of Aanchal'.
Arnie will be joining us tomorrow'" he finished'
Kriti and kruti whispered to
themselves eyeing Anjali'
"Look that girl is wearing Jeans
and t-shirt'look at us'"kriti gritted her teeth'
"This paa na'I'm not going to
spare him'kruti spoke'"
"Hey manish looks like our
sissies are very narrow minded and may be from some village'they are even
dressed like that'hope they learn from pari'"giggled manvith'
The girls clearly heard his
comment and were fuming' Even Anjali heard'she liked this twins as soon as she
saw'they were of the same age'she so wanted to become friends with them'she
said "bhai do you know even I'm from a village and so are you but I love
traditional dresses bhaiyya'it is me who have to learn from them'haina
nani'"she asked Devyani'
Anjali is far more matured than a
teen ager'ofcourse she is a teenager and also behaves like that as well but one
thing she can't stand is humiliating others'she never allows anyone to
humiliate others infront of her'
"arrey meri granddaughters kisi
bhi dress me pyare lagte hai'I love them all equally'and I'm sure shashi ne hi
yeh pyari ladkiyon ko lecture de kar aisa traditional dress pehen ne ko bola
hoga'haina chotey'??" she looked at him with question as well as sure of
Kavitha and khushi were
shocked'the twins opened their mouths wide open'they liked this old lady
"daadi how can you guess so
correctly'"kruti asked and bit her tongue for the slip of her tongue'she
thought she is going to receive a good blasting at night from their mother'
"kya karun bitiya'yeh ladka tho
mera beta hai aur mai usse nahi jaanti kya'???"
Khushi and kavitha suppressed
their giggle' shashi looked at them sheepishly'. "woh kya haina maa'.woh'"he
"devarji you shouldn't be too
strict with my daughters'" Mano said in mock anger'.
"bhai aap tho badle hi nahi'very
conservative haan'?"Aanchal teased him'
"arrey mere bechare bhai ko chod
do na'" Mayank said for his part'
"daadi, bua aur tai'you know what
papa did with us'"kriti inhaled and kruti continued' "he was the ring
master'.and treated as though we were some animals in circus and trained us'."
"don't do this bitiya'"
"Don't laugh loudly'.the roof
will fall on your head'"
"Don't wear this'don't wear that'
kavi surely these two are going to put me in shame"
The twins enacted their father'.
Shashi was embarrassed so was kavitha'khushi was shocked beyond words' "hey
devi maiyya'"she muttered' her sisters never behaved like this infront of
others'these type of silly things are only for the eyes of khushi , their maa,
Everyone laughed their hearts
out'leaving kavitha, shashi and khushi too embarrassed to react'
"Hey you people are very jovial'I
love you both a lot" Anji ran and hugged them both'startling them' "Can we be
friends'?" she asked them'they immediately agreed' "yeah'she screamed out of
excitement'.and you both will be staying with me'we three will share the
room'ok'?" she asked' they agreed' "'and you can wear my stuffs too'I don't
mind at all'if you want we can go shopping tomorrow'" anji planned'
"Whoa pari breathe'."manvith
rolled his eyes' "girls'" he muttered'
"shashi let them enjoy' don't be
strict'now you go with your bhaiyya and chit chat'we ladies have a lot of work
to do" Devyani shooed them away'
"'and you boys will you take the
girls for a tour over the house'.and mind no taunting'?"
"nani I'm there na'why do you
worry'come khushi di'" anji called her she liked this sweet & always
"bhaiyya come first let us go to
"currently I'm staying in this
room'we three will be staying here from today'and mannu and manish bhaiyya's
room is the next one' the one on the right to our room is Aki bhaiyya's'" she
took them to the room which is next to manvith and manish'.
"this is arnie bhaiyya's room' he
never allows anyone into this room' khushi di you can take the room next to
his'actually there are 6 rooms which surround the pool designed in a circle and
each of our room has a way to enter the pool and the garden adjoining it'."
Akash spoke with khushi and they bonded
immediately'he tried to find out about her'he liked her innocent smile and calm
nature'he helped her carry the luggage to her room' the twins were in their
room arranging two more beds in the room and decorating the room according to
their wish'they were astonished to find they 3 have same kind of interests'.
Manvith and Manish were left alone'Anji
purposely did that to make them realize their mistake'she knew they longed for
sisters'.let them come on their own she thought'. khushi arranged her room and
went to help the 3 teens but the trio seemed busy with their own stuff
laughing, and giggling'she didn't want to disturb them'maybe atlast her sisters
found someone very friendly of their own age'.Khushi then went in search of
kavitha'. As she was
passing by their dadi's room she heard Aanchal talking'
"amma, khushi is so nice she
would make a nice bahu' I wish her to get married to my arnie'"she said
"haan bitiya, they both will make
a cute pair' will chotey agree'? Khushi is very calm and I instantly liked
her'what do you say kavi bitiya"
"I guessed that you will make her
your bahu' you asked her to call you mom'na di, I guessed it at that time'but
will shashi agree'and what about you kavi..,?" Mano intervened finding her lost
in her own world'
"I have already seen happiness in
shashi and bhabhi's eyes as soon as I asked khushi to call me mom'hain na
bhabhi'.?I think you understood my intention'"
"will khushi agree'.? We both are
happy jiji, but it is upto khushi we never forced her on anything'but at the
same time I am so happy if she becomes your bahu di'." Kavi replied'
Khushi didn't hear the rest of
the conversation'she was too shocked'she walked back to her room with many
She opened the French door and
entered the garden'she stood mesmerized by the beauty'.around the pool were
various plants all bloomed and gently swaying at the breeze'.
Some tables and
chairs were placed at some spots'there was a pathway leading to the pool which
glistened in the afternoon sun' she sat at the edge of the pool dangling her
legs in it and watching the ripples'her heart cried silently'everyone are planning
to get her married' how can she marry someone she didn't even see' "Hey devi
maiyya!!! why did you do this to me'why did you make me fall in love with a guy
who doesn't love me' why did you fail to make me forget him'it has been 2 years
still I feel for him the same way'.what should I do'.???" She thought as a lone
tear made its way out and flowed down her cheeks'.
Her thoughts drifted back to the
day when she first saw him'.
"I am very nervous lav'."
"Don't worry khuhsi' I've seen
your designs'.they are mind blowing'soon you will be the apple in the eyes our
professors'and it is after all a 7 month diploma in fashion designing'don't get
worried'come on smile'" lav comforted her'they became very close though in
thought, behavior and character they are poles apart'being dorm mates brought
"Look at that guy khushi'looks
like a nerd'the rounded spectales he is wearing is reminding me of my harry
potter'looks like he gonna take a broom and fly away on the first day
khushi looked at him and
laughed'though they crossed that fellow she turned back to look at him once
more and have a good laugh'she hit a rock solid chest'she turned her gaze to
the man in her front'.she lost her speech looking into the chocolaty brown eyes
staring back at her with the same intensity'. She felt herself drowning in
"Are you okay khush'.? Hey can't
you see where you are going'?" lav barked at the man'
But both were in a trance that
they forgot the rest of the world'
Why do I feel this way khushi
thought as lavanya pulled her out of the man's grip'he had caught her waist to
prevent her from falling'.she missed his touch as soon as he removed his hands
still looking ardently at her'. He stirred some unknown emotions in her'.
Lav practically dragged her out
of his embrace and pulled her along to the class'she kept looking back at
him'even he seemed dazed and didn't stop staring at her' he had not spoken a
word'his friend who was by his side muttered an apology to lav when she barked
Some more of flash back'.only
khushi's pov'. Naughty teens'.
thats it friends...let me know how you find it...
