next day morning:
when kunal woke up it was too late..he looked beside him.the bed was empty.he looked around... could not find siddhi.'till siddhi comes let me sleep...'he decided and started sleeping again.
after some time siddhi came out of wash room wiping her wet hair.he opened one eye and looked at siddhi.
she was wearing a leaf green colour printed silk sari with short sleevematching blouse. with her short wet hair(her hair grew little bit long ...now it is just below her shoulder)...red sindoor on her maang and KuShi chain around her neck she was looking adorable.her face was glowing with happiness...kunal loved her new get up with sindoor on her maang.she was looking sweet and cute.
siddhi casually came and sat beside him on the bed.till yesterday the feeling towards each other was different...today after their exotic night they became complete husband and wife by respecting one another's feelings and desires.
siddhi:'aur kitna sowo gay ? utto...it is going to be 10 am...'she tried to wake up thinking that he is sleeping.
kunal:' good morning...'he turned towards her and tried to pulled her in to his arms.without making fuss as a good wife she remained in his arm for few second gazing him lovingly.' he is my husband, he belongs to me and vice verse...i am going to make my own family and spend rest of my life with him...'her thought made her feel proud.
kunal:'issa kya dek rahi ho?...'he moved a strand of wet hair from her face behind her ear and tried to kiss her.
siddhi:'tch! kya kar rahe ho?...tumai din raat ka farg nahi hai?...get ready maa is going to come...' she tried to get rid of his hold.
kunal:' maa!...'as soon as she said maa he left her and jumped out of his bed.
she was brooding about kunal. 'i can't believe this ...how come it is possible?...40% share holder of malik industry!!!... i should make use of him...'she was constantly thinking about kunal.finally she came to delhi and tried all the ways to reach kunal.she went to malik house but was not allowed in by the security guards.she went to malik industries but could not enter with out ID card.she went to kunal's apartment ...found locked because all were out for shopping.still she did not give up.
in kunal's apartment.
kunal and raveena were on the dinning table eating their dinner. siddhi was serving them.veena is busy in kitchen heating food in the micro oven.
raveena:'bhabhi...will you please teach me how to make chicken briyani?...'
kunal: what is wrong with you?.....'
raveena :' bhaiya cool...see... such a cute bhabhi ko tum jaise kadhoose vegetarian se shaadi karna pada... kya pata?..muje future mai ...koi non vegetarian se shaadi karna pada tho?...'
kunal:'raveena ...concentrate on your studies...'
raveena :'wahi tho kar rahi hun...'
raveena:'concentrating on my life studies, home science...'
kunal:'ewww...' he made a weird face while he was trying some sweets and talking with raveena.
raveena:'bhaiya...'she called him in low tone and looked at siddhi . kunal understood that it was siddhi 's preparation.
kunal:'wow...yummmy...i just love it...'immediately he changed his face expression too. siddhi:...she felt bad about his comment and moved away from there.kunal stretched his hand and try to hold her...but able to hold only her pallu.he left the dinning table and walked behind her along with the pallu. kunal:'sorry...sorry...sorry..'he said in a begging tone while walking behind her and wiping his hand in her pallu. raveena: ...the way kunal following siddhi with her pallu made her laugh.
siddhi and kunal started going to office just to do very important and urgent work.they went late to office and came early from office.one evening SiNal took raveena for shopping and siddhi told her to buy what ever she likes.raveena grabbed all garbage which she was thinking to buy for a long time...
it was very nice to see siddhi calling veena maa and moving very well with veena and raveena.from veena she learned more about kunal...his likes and dislikes and many more.
that day evening kunal and siddhi came home from office by 3pm and found veena and raveena were out for shopping.
as soon as they entered ...
kunal:'i am so tired ...make a cup of coffee for me...'he winked at siddhi .
siddhi:'...just now you had tea in the office isn't it ?'they were standing in the living room/hall
kunal:' come on siddhi...that tea is different from this coffee ...tumare hathonka coffee peene ka maza hi alag hai...'suddenly he bend down and hold her near her knee and lifted her up.
siddhi:'..o..m..g!..leave me i am going to fall ...'she circled his neck with both her hands and screamed.
kunal:...he started walking towards kitchen.
siddhi:'kunal ...hamari shaadi ho chuki hai...you are still like a lover boy...chodo muje......'she tried to get down.he let her slide down a bit and griped her again when her face came close to his face.he winked at her with a wide smile and tried to lean his face more close to hers.she pushed him back ,got down from his hold and ran away from there to refresh herself.
after a week stay veena and raveena were to leave delhi.a day before, raj and dadima visited siddhi in kunal's apartment.they had dinner with them..after the dinner in the hall kunal was sitting beside raj ,veena was sitting in other sofa with dadima.siddhi and raveena were arranging the kitchen.
raj:'kunal if you don't mind i have a request ...'
raj:'kunal...now siddhi is married ,she has to stay with you...'
kunal: raj:' kal...raveena aur veenaji...ooty chale jaenge...then you two will be alone...' kunal:...he understood what is he trying to convey
raj:'... you know i don't have anyone other than siddhi in my life.i am a heart patient too.if you don't mind i wish tum dono malik house mai rahain...' he said looking at veena.
raj:' just for few months...any way when raveena completes her graduation aap and raveena will move to delhi...until then...' he said to veena.
veena:...she looked at kunal.
raj:'...if you want i can transfer malik house to veena's name..so that you may feel that you are staying in your own house...'
kunal:...with a smile he little bit moved closed to him and hold his hand with love and respect.
kunal:'...from the day one i met you ,you treated me as your son with love and care. i saw my father in you.you believed me and had faith in me to the extent that you gave your only daughter to me.aap fikr maat kijiye...' raj:'thanks kunal......'
after raj and dadima went siddhi came to veena.
siddhi:'yeh aap rakiyeh...'she gave two small keys to her.
veena:'yeh kay hai?...'
siddhi:'yeh SBI bank locker keys hai.i have kept all the jewels which you gave it to me as shagun..yeh jewel mere taraf se raveena kay leyeh...'
veena:'why????...tum mai wo jewels achche nahi lage?..'she worried.
siddhi:'maa...issa kuch nahi hai...they are all very cute. i love them...but i know these jewels should go to raveena... waise bhi i don't wear heavy jewelry..'she convinced her and gave the key.
SiNal did not go to office. by 5pm they took veena and raveena to airport to send off .by the time they reached malik house it was around 8pm.even though kunal stayed in malik house for a week he never entered in to siddhi's bed room thinking that it is ill manners to do so.
kunal step in to her bed room for the first time following siddhi. he looked around it was a huge master bedroom beautifully furnished with dark brown oak wood.a double bed with duvet and cushions ,side tables and a dressing table.the furniture synchronized with wall painting , brown curtains and carpets ...few beautiful natural scenarios were fixed on the walls ...side tables were decorated with flower vase and table lamp...
look at the bed room! siddhi:' if you don't like it we can furnish it according to your taste ...in a modern way...' she said looking at his confused face. kunal:' ...' he stood smiling keeping his hands in his jeans pockets. siddhi:'kya hua?...' she asked looking at his wide smile. kunal:'tumai pata bi hai?...' he hugged her from back around her shoulder, resting his chin on her head. siddhi:' kya?...' she asked holding his arms on her chest. kunal:'these furniture maine mangwaya tha ...UK se...' he said playing with her fingers. siddhi:'what!... really! that is why! i was wondering about oak tree furniture...' kunal:' jab muje nahi pata tha i am furnishing my own bed room...' siddhi: tum bahut badmash ho...' kunal:'...ture say...' he kissed on her head. siddhi:'come...i have to introduce you to some one...' she took him to dressing table holding his wrist. kunal:' introduce me! kis se? yahan tho koi nahi hai...' he looked around. siddhi:' ek minute...'she bend down , pulled out the bottom most drawer of the dressing table and took out a photo frame. kunal:' kun hai...?'before she could show curies kunal peeped in and look at the picture. look at the person in the picture! siddhi:'mamma...tumare damaad se milo...' she spoke to the picture wiping off the dust from her face. kunal: siddhi:' my life partner...soul mate...' she was emotionally saying to the photo as if she is talking to her mother in person.her eyes brimmed with tears. kunal: siddhi:'mamma...aap kush hai na?...' she made the photo frame to stand on the table and wiped her tears.
kunal took a fresh flower from the flower vase and place it in front of the photo as a sign of respect and seeking her blessing too.
siddhi:'mamma...hamai aashirwad kiji ye...' kunal:'siddhi...' he took both her hands in hers and turned her towards him. siddhi:
kunal: i know no one can take the place of a mother...'
kunal:' mai poori kohish karunga ek achcha pati banne ka...tumai kush rakne ka...' siddhi:'thanks......she leaned on her chest.
kunal:' waise tumari mamma bahut sunder hai ...tumare tarha...' he brought her in to his brief hug from her emotional mood.
next day in the office:
when his phone rang kunal was busy with his lap top.
kunal:'hello...'he took the receiver and attended while looking in to the lap top.
she:'hi ...how are you ...? i miss you so much...' she drooled over the phone
kunal:'may i know who is on the line?...'he got irritated with the voice .
she:'chopu...omg!...don't you recognize me?...how come?..i am ritcha...'
kunal:'ritcha...!..?he became wild and shocked as soon as he heard that name chopu. ritcha is the only one who calls him chopu , short form of chopda.
she:'tumara pehela payaar...your first love...ritcha thakral...'
kunal: his face became pale. she:'helo...helo...' the receiver slipped down from his hand.
kunal's body temperature suddenly gone down.he became chill and numb.he took water from the glass and drank the whole water in one stoke. after that he could not concentrate in his work. he felt weak as if he was sick.
he went home... straight away went to siddhi 's room and fall on the bed...don't even care to remove his shoes or change his dress.
after some time siddhi came to him.
siddhi:'chalo...dinner ready hai...'
kunal:'please ...i don't want to have any thing...'she already noticed that he is very much depressed and upset.she thought may be because he is missing his family.
she sat near him on the bed.
siddhi:'i know you are missing your family...thodi din ki hi baat hai..after raveena 's exams they will be back to delhi.mean time we can also visit them na...' she took his hand in her hand and hold it with support and passion.
kunal:'issa kuch nahi hai...i am not feeling well..i have slight head ache...'
siddhi:'head ache!...you should have told me...just a minute..'she was back with vicks in her hand.
siddhi:'mai laga de ti hun...'she gently applied on his fore head...he looked at her with lot of pain and gilt in his eyes.'omg!...she is so innocent...how i am going to tell her about my past which already started chasing me...isse leyeh tho mai siddhi se dur rahana chahata tha...'he hold her hand with which she was applying vicks on his forehead. kunal:'bas...ab tum sojao...' he tried to smile at her.
siddhi:'you did not remove your shoes...let me help you..'...she was about to remove it...kunal immediately got up and hold her hand.he don't like her to touch his feet.
kunal:'nahi...siddhi ...please...' he got up from the bed removed his shoes and sacks , changed in to his night wear and came back to the bed. siddhi was lying on the bed and preparing herself to sleep.he helped her to cover herself kissed on her forehead and lied beside her. siddhi started sleeping peacefully but kunal could not.
