"Dinner ?? Yash, do you think that Aarti will be able to stand with people around her, beta ?? " Gayathri asked him when Yash suggested the plan of having dinner tonight with Shobha, Dubey ji and also Paridhi.
"People ?? Maa.. come on ! It's her own family... Shobha maa and Dubey ji are her parents.. They have full priority towards their daughter.. And on top of that, Aarti herself requested me if she could meet Dubey ji in this short time as she missed him so much ! I think this dinner is a good idea.. Paridhi will be able to spend some time with her sister too ! Errmm.. not only her sister but also Prat.. (Yash bite her tongue)"
"Kaun??" Gayathri asked. Yash shook his head. Gayathri stared at Yash and said, "Acha tikke.. I think your father will agree too.. Waisey, after marriage, it's good to have such gathering... We can even discuss about Aarti's health and also your full marriage with Aarti !" Gayathri smiled and left.
Pratik who was listening to Yash and Gayathri conversation, sneaked in the kitchen once Gayathri left. He hugged Yash from the back tightly and kissed him on the cheek.
"Eeyu ! Pratik... You have grown up ! Yuckzzz.. ! What's the point of kissing me now, hun ? Tum jaante ho.. Tumhein Colgate
ki bohot zarurat hai... Your mouth smell sucks man !" Yash laughed.
"Bhaiyya.. !! Please... Errm ! Thanks a lot haan.. for inviting Shobha ma and Dubey ji to our house for dinner... And.. and.."
"And.. and.. what and ??" Yash asked him, giggling again.
"And Paridhi too ! Muah.. bhaiyya ! Will be cooking special dinner tonight ! Yahoo ! " Pratik replied with so much excitement. He wanted to go to his room to change his cloth.
Yash called him and said, "Pratik.. I was just joking !"
"Whattt ??? " Pratik shouted. He thought Yash was joking about Paridhi coming tonight.
"Hahaha ! I mean about the Colgate and the Smell ! Not about Paridhi " Yash laughed and left the kitchen. Pratik warned him that he will get back whatever he had done today to him.
"Maaa..." Yash stopped Gayathri when he saw her heading towards his room. "Where are you going maa ?" Yash further questioned her.
"Arey.. Aarti ki paas jaa rahi hoon.. She has to be informed na?" Gayathri answered him.
"No.. no ! Please.. You need not tell anything to Aarti and also the kids..
Everything will be a surprise for them especially Aarti ! And no further questions.. Okay maa ?" he cupped his mother's face with his hand.
"Yash... You know what I see ?? Besides for the kids, I realized your deep love for Aarti, beta ! After Arpita, Aarti seems to be everything for you.. Kaise ?? Itna jaldi pyaar..?? " Gayathri asked him.
"Maa... Woh sab Jadoo hai ! Aarti Ki Jadoo hai joh mein unko Ladoo bangayi hoon.. !
" Yash answer made Gayathri giggle. But she understood... she comprehended that there is something special about Aarti that had made Yash fell in love with her in a very short time.. Sweet she thought ! Gayathri was again stopped by Yash when she paced towards their room.
"Beta.. Your bauji wanted Aarti to wear Saree today ! And learn to tie it... Your buaji had made a complain to your bauji about this.. Don't worry lotz.. I will make sure Aarti is not forced and she'll wear saree only after she agrees." Gayathri explained and leave.
"Maa... (Gayathri turned to face him).. Toh Aarti will learn how to tie saree, I mean now kya ?" Yash asked to which Gayathri nodded as answer.
"Ooh.. Then should I j.. (his phone rang) Uffo... This phone call bhi na.. (He said softly) You go first and teach her properly !" Yash said to Gayathri. Gayathri shook her head once she realized what was Yash thinking about.
Aarti who had just took a shower was spotted in a simple orange churidhar by Gayathri. Gayathri smiled and hold her by the shoulder.
"Aarti... If I ask you to do something.. will you do it for me ? " Gayathri asked.
"Haan maa.. anything for you !" she replied and hugged Gayathri.
"Can you wear this saree tonight?" Gayathri showed her the saree.
Her eyes were opening bigger and bigger... She touched the saree.. It's a maroon chiffon saree with a very delicate border and a black blouse. If she is embellished with only a pretty piece of jewellery, Gayathri said she'll look breathtaking and vivacious lady tonight. Aarti blinked her eyes and blushed.
"Maa.. Lekin itna khubsoorat saree.. For what??" she took the saree properly with her both hands.
"Hmm... Woh suspense hai ! Lekin a small clue... Yash will always be by your side.." Gayathri giggled.
"Date ??" she raised her eyebrows.
"Boldiya.. suspense ! Come on.. " Gayathri took her to the bathroom.
Gayathri came out of the bathroom after a few minutes as Aarti had started to wear her blouse. She called Gayathri once again for a help. Gayathri closed all the windows of the room and guided Aarti towards the make-up table. She began to wrap saree around Aarti's waist and tuck it in once gently. She explained to her first about all the steps but she stopped when Suraj ji was calling her. Gayathri requested Aarti to wait for a while and told her to practice the steps she mentioned to her while she's away.
Aarti tried to tuck the saree but it keep on causing her troubles. She is still in her blouse and the saree is only being wrapped around her waist once. "Oh Sh*t !" she almost cried and gave up. She lied on the bed along and covered her front body with the remaining long saree. She placed her left wrist on her forehead and closed her eyes.
Yash came in and thought the 'saree learning session' has over because usually when women wear saree, they doesn't left the door unlocked.
So he guessed that they are done and he eagerly wanted to see Aarti after he is informed by Vidhi babhi that Aarti will be in his favourite saree. He went in and unfortunately, his eyes were fixed on his shirt as he began to unbutton his shirt. As he was taking off his shirt, a strong wind blew causing him to rotate himself and that's when he saw Aarti lying almost half-naked on the bed. The strong wind had made Aarti's waist to be exposed and Yash realized that Aarti had a very beautiful like hourglass body owned by a professional dancer ! Wow..
But why is she like this ?? Hmm.. Yash settled himself on the bed and gazed at Aarti lovingly. He smiled thinking of her stupidity but he loved this innocence Aarti. He decided to play with Aarti, a Hot Play
! He lie alongside of Aarti and began to caress her hairs, stroke her hairs which is covering her face. He kissed her forehead and heard a slight moaning sound from Aarti's mouth. She was smiling but still didn't realize his presence. He felt like bursting into laughter whenever he is reminded of their 'never happened hot scenes'. He turned her head gently towards her right and pecked at her left cheek and her ear. Again, he heard Aarti's soft moans as she started to move, feeling the chill and butterflies flying in her stomach.
He whispered, "Aarti... Aarti !! Your dangerous man is here... Wake up ! If not you'll be full naked" Yash almost laughed when Aarti turned her head towards him. She gave him a dead shock expression ! She slammed her forehead.. I slept ... In this condition ! Uffo... She tried to wake up but as usual, she's late !
Both her hands are joined with his hands and she was being glued on the bed, buried under his weight. Their gazes met and locked, sweeping her out of reality. God, he is too sexy, hot and yeah, dangerous ! Her cheeks turned pinky when she found out Yash's eyes were roaming from her head to her toe. Soon, she could feel her body getting warmer as his hard chest was pressing her breast. They were getting closer and closer. Yash runs his fingers and caress her waist, bringing a tickling sensation for Aarti. His soft M-shaped lips tried to reach her rosy lips and when his lips were inches away from Aarti, Aarti appeared less comfortable than the moment before, but she didn't move away from him. She sighed and Yash peck her slowly on the lips. He didn't go beyond or fast.. Just a short single kiss on her lips ! He stared deeply in her deep brown eyes and hissed, "I miss you, Mrs. Yash Scindia !"
Yash rise from the bed and told Aarti he will ask Gayathri to help her with the saree. She stopped him and fixed her eyes on the floor. Yash understood what she wanted. He wore his shirt and then, he draws her closer to him and took her entire sari in his hands.
He tuck it into the skirt from a little beyond Aarti's navel, starting from her right side of her waist. He continue wrapping it around her waist and after a few rounds of tucking, he asked Aarti to hold the saree an arm's length away from her waist. While holding it away, he helped her in tucking in the other end into her skirt to forms a loose loop. Aarti heart skipped a beat when he was tucking the saree as his hands were in contact with her waist. She began to shiver and didn't dare to utter a single word to Yash.
She concentrated on every steps taught by Yash to her on how to wear saree. He wind the loose loop cloth and pleat it. He ends it with 5-6 pleats and tuck in the pleats and pin them together. He drape the remaining fabric around her from left to right, and at last over her shoulder. He secured the end portion on her shoulder with a silver heart shaped brooch on her sleeveless blouse. Yash always ensure he had make a perfect choice for Aarti.. A Backless blouse ! But the one bothering him much is her wounds and bruises... They are still there on her back ! But that doesn't make Aarti imperfect... He turned her to face him. He declared to her that she's the most beautiful and sexiest thing he has ever laid eyes on.
Aarti was confused on how to react. She bowed her eyes and refused to share an eyelock with Yash. Yash lifted her chin and Aarti closed her eyes. "Shh Yash ! I know I'm not beautiful... Once everyone has their eyes on my back, they will run away !" she said softly, laughed when she whispered the last sentence to him. She almost cried and began to walk away from Yash. Yash gripped her wrist and gently pull her to him. He kissed her tears and cuddled her in his arms. He whispered in her ears that he had a small gift for her. He took out a box of earrings from his pocket and handed it to her. She opened it and confessed to Yash that it's beautiful.
She frowned when she took it out from it's place. She found out that the silver dangling earrings had a ' Y ' locket. She rolled her eyes and smile to him later on. She found Yash is too sweet like a Ladoo.
"Aarti... (Gayathri barged into the room) Hailaa... (Gayathri's eyes enlarged, her palms on her cheeks with her mouth open while in a frozen state looking at Aarti ) Looking at Gayathri, Yash crossed his arms and placed his left hand on his mouth, giggling. Aarti placed the box of earrings on the make-up table and gave Gayathri a tight hug.
While hugging her, Yash signaled to her not to forget to put on the earrings later on. He winked to her and left the room. Yash went to Pratik's room to get ready for the dinner. After all, it's a surprise for Aarti and the kids and he didn't want them to know about the surprise dinner. Yash was extemely hot and dashing in a maroon collared t-shirt with black jeans. He unbuttoned the first three buttons on his shirt just to make him sexier than Aarti.. If possible ! Pratik laughed and said that Yash going to lose with his babhi... Aarti babhi will always remained the best for him ! Yash tickled him and told him "And so Paridhi.. right ?? Shut up, Chote !".
Yash went to Dubey's residence to take them to Scindia House.
"Aarti... I couldn't believe me eyes ! I told you na.. You will look so beautiful and sensous in this saree.. !" Gayathri told her to which Aarti responded with a blush.
"Maa.. since I'm ready now.. can you please tell me what's going on ? I mean what is the plan tonight? Why am I in such saree ?? Don't tell me I'm going for a candle light dinner with your laadla Yash !" Aarti asked, doing her pouty face.
"Kyun ?? If you are going for dinner date with my Yash, won't you agree for it ? Is my beta too bad.. ??? I thought he's a very romantic guy !" Gayathri replied.
"Maa... Haila ! You never know haan... Your son is freaking romantic and dangerous guy I have ever seen! Aisa kaise ho sakta hai.. every time he need a kiss ! Besharam.." Aarti finally complained to Gayathri about Yash's behaviour all this time.
"Oho... That's normal, Aarti ! He's your husband.. If he never kiss you, then who'll he kiss ?" she said, leaving Aarti alone in the room. She wants to get a diamond necklace for Aarti.
Aarti twisted her body and face the mirror. And oh wow ! For the first time, she felt her appearance tonight was better than before. He picked the earrings Yash gave her and wear it. While fixing it on her ears, Gayathri came in and placed a simple diamond necklace around her neck. Aarti was completely looking like a Barbie Doll ! Gayathri put a tikka
behind Aarti's ear to avoid any evil eyes on her.
"Arey maa.. Ansh, Payal aur Palak.." Gayathri cuts her words and told her not to worry about them as Vidhi will be there with the children. "Lekin maa... Tell me na where am I going ??" Aarti asked.
"Where are we going, taiji ??" Ansh asked Vidhi. PayPal looked at Vidhi as they were expecting answers too from Vidhi.
"Hmm.. a surprise ! Even I didn't know about it much ! Your papa asked me to get you ready by 7... And look at three of you.. So cute !" Vidhi hugged them slightly.
"Ansh !! Payal.. Palak !! See who has come to our house !" Yash stood near the kids' room.
"Oh my god.. Badi mummy and badi papa !" Ansh shouted in excitement and ran to Shobha and Dubey ji. Shobha and Dubey ji hugged him tightly and he hugged them with equal favour too. He missed his grandpa and grandma very much ! Palak and Payal too hugged them. Vidhi did a 'Namaste' towards both of them and took their blessings.
"Aarti kahan hai ?? " Shobha asked Yash. Yash asked her to be patient as their daughter will take some time for her grand appearance. All of them moved to the living room and chatted with Suraj Pratap and also other family members. Ansh stared at Shobha and is determined to ask about Aarti's health to his badi mummy.
Everyone was attracted to the other side of the house when they heard jingling and tinkling sounds of Aarti's anklets. Like Gayathri, Shobha too couldn't believe her eyes and utter any words gazing at her daughter's breathtaking beauty. Yash could just utter a 'Uff' from his mouth and others couldn't take their eyes off from the figure that is walking towards them. Everyone stands and Shobha was the first one to invite her daughter with a warm hug. Aarti hugged her parents tightly and literally had tears on her eyes.
She saw Yash was gazing at her most of the time. When her eyes met him, he winked to her and gestured a 'Thank You' to her for wearing the earrings. He even gave her a flying kiss causing Aarti to giggle silently. Pratik joined them after spending some times in the kitchen and was surprised to see Paridhi was missing. He never met Pari for too long time and missing her so much. Yash informed him that Paridhi is not in the town for almost two weeks and will be back tomorrow. So, Paridhi will come and visit Aarti tomorrow. Although Pratik was quite disappointed, he still smile as he couldn't wait to meet Pari tomorrow.
They have their dinner together and all of them keep joking and have some fun in the dining room. Buaji, as usual, felt so irritated and disgusted of this gathering. She quickly went off to her room to pray. Suraj ji too left for some works.
"Aarti.. how does you feel now? Is everything fine ?" Shobha asked.
"Maa... I'm fine ! But sometimes I'm uncomfortable and felt itchy at my back... Maa... I have a doubt ! Can you please help me in clearing my doubt ?" Aarti stared at Shobha. Shobha nodded.
"Maa.. Is there something wrong with my health ??" Aarti finally asked. Shobha felt like her heart going to burst in any time. How did Aarti sensed that there is something wrong with her ? Must she mentioned to her on what had actually
happened to her? What will be her reaction on this ? Millions of questions popped in her mind and her heartbeats were getting more rapid.
"Maa... !!! Maa... (Aarti hold Shobha's shoulder) Bolo na.. (Tears start streaming down her face) Is there anything wrong with me ?? Am I having any disease or am in danger ?? Why whenever people explained to me about something, I will forget it in some time..?? It's weird you know.." Aarti told her.
"Nahin beta.. nothing is wrong with you ! Everything is fine !" Shobha confessed, looking at the ceiling.
"Maa.. no ! I heard.. I heard Yash himself told buaji that I'm not well... Why am I not well ?? I'm fine.. It's just the matter of my back pain.. aur kuch bhi nahi ! And another thing, the kids..! " Aarti stop uttering when Shobha placed her hand on Aarti's mouth.
"Bas Aarti ! I don't wanna hear anything from you.. No more asking ! Now you listen to me beta, there's nothing wrong with you ! I know the kids might be behaving weirdly to you like they have known you for years, but they are small kids who easily mingle with people around them ! You are their mother.. and a mother means everything for her children ! What you have to do is just keep bonding with them.. You'll forgot all your pain , beta ! Trust me.. nothing is wrong with you !" Shobha explained to her and finally, pulled her for a hug and broke down in Aarti's embrace silently.
"Maa... Really ?? Nothing is wrong with me??" Aarti asked her. Shobha reassured her back by nodding and smiling. They hugged again but in deep, Aarti felt like her heart is telling her something else. What is it trying to tell me ??
Aarti went to her bedroom to get some rest as Shobha ma urge her to do so. Before they left, even Dubey bauji spend some time with her daughter and asked her to take enough rest everyday and eat her medicines in right proportion. Yash who was sitting beside Aarti assures bauji and Shobha ma that they shouldn't worry much about their daughter. Her pain will heal very soon. Shobha and Dubey ji left Aarti in her room and Aarti took their blessings and hugged them again. Yash escorted both of them to the door. Ansh came and hugged Shobha from back. Yash has to attend another call so he excused himself for a few minutes.
Shobha quickly pulled Ansh for a hug and hold her tears. There were moments of Aarti and Ansh playing in her mind which touched her hearts and caused her tears which were struggling to escaped from her eyes, finally streamed down her face.
Yash came right on the time and was shocked to see the picture in front of his eyes. Three of Aarti's loved ones were breaking down silently with many unanswered questions reflecting in their eyes.
