Brilliant and superb update, shame on Lisa she could not reach ASR. Awww love the fact that NK and Akash dedicated the dance to Arnav and khushi, the song was beautiful and so was the dance. Loved khushi teasing and trying to seduce Arnav, she had decided if he is a lion then she is a lioness. Poor Arnav could not take her sweet torture and started shivering and bless khushi thought he had a fever. Please continue soon and thanks for the PM xx

Finding Khushi

Part 19 

Section 3


Lisa grit her teeth at the sight of ASR & Chamkili leaving the dance floor to thunderous applause. A lady in a golden sari was hugging them both, and Akash Singh Raizada and the clown with him were congratulating the pair. The behenji in green and pink sari was wiping away her tears of joy!


She watched ASR lead the girl to a secluded corner of the room, and walked up to them. After all, she had to greet the lovebirds and congratulate them!

"Arnavji! I think Pamji and Simji will have a heart attack if you smile at me like this.", Khushi whispered.

"Like what?", he murmured, his smiling eyes devouring her, his full attention on Khushi.

"ASR!", Lisa purred.

Arnav turned around, frowning at the disturbance.

Lisa launched herself into his arms, kissing him on his cheek.



Arnav blinked in shock, and pulled away at the earliest. He looked at the model with disconcerted eyes.

"Err...", He struggled to drag his mind from Khushi to the issue at hand. "Er... Lisa? How are you?"

Lisa breathed in deep. "Missing you, ASR. You and your perfume! Both are unforgettable."


Arnav stole a glance at Khushi. She had taken a step back, and her face looked terrified, visions of Lisa's wild cat fury and animal-like screech at the sight of her ruined fur coat flashing through her mind.

 She was too upset to take in the model's words. Arnav breathed a sigh of relief. He quickly took Khushi's hand, and pressed it. Khushi gulped.

"It has been a long time, ASR. We should really catch up! What do you say to dinner tonight?", Lisa crooned.

"I am otherwise occupied, Lisa. Sorry.", Arnav said casually. "Excuse us.", He turned to lead Khushi away from there at the earliest.

"Who is this? She looks familiar...", Lisa's voice trailed off.

Arnav & Khushi were trapped. Introductions were in order.

"Khushi Kumari Gupta.", Arnav said. "We are getting married in 5 months." His words were a warning to Lisa, a warning she chose to ignore.

"Chamkili? The girl who ran errands in your office? The one who demolished my fur coat?", Lisa pretended surprise and shock. "You are going to MARRY... HER?"

"Yes." He was short with her.

"Well, well, wonders will never cease...", Lisa murmured, looking Khushi up and down. "ASR going slumming...", she smirked.

"Lisa, mind your words." His voice send a chill down Khushi and Lisa's spines. 

Pam & Sim, who were watching the confrontation, swallowed nervously. La had left India, and was of no further use to them. That was why they had used Lisa who was made of temper and arrogance, and all things nasty.

"I will, I will.", Lisa smiled with her lips. "After all, we are old friends. And I should wish you well, shouldn't I?"

"I won't trouble you by expecting it of you. Enjoy the party.", ASR drawled. He led Khushi away to more congenial company.



"Lisaji is very angry with me, Arnavji! Because she thinks I damaged her fur coat.", Khushi whispered to Arnav as they walked away.

"She has no need to be. I know you didn't destroy her coat. Pam & Sim did. It is on the CCTV footage.", Arnav said, curling her hand more firmly around his arm. "And Lisa received a cheque from AR Designs covering the cost of her coat."

"YOU paid her?", Khushi whispered in shock.

"Hhmm...", said Arnav.





Later that night, Anjali, Payal, & Khushi went to the Ladies' to brush their hair to perfection, check on their make-up, and to sit down on the plush chairs for a moment to rest their feet. They were giggling, having had a lovely time that evening so far, dancing and spending time with Arnav, Akash, & NK.

Arnav turned to speak to a guest, and Lisa slipped into the Ladies' after the trio. 


Pam & Sim looked at each other in anticipation. Something was bound to happen. Lisa the witch, as she was known among the models, could be depended on to do harm and hurt feelings if and when she could.




Lisa looked around. There! Chamkili was standing in a corner, taking to the upstart Payal Singh Raizada and ASR's sister. 

As she watched, Payal turned away to answer a call on her phone. And ASR's sister walked away, limping towards one of the rooms attached to the Ladies' where guests could check their clothing.

Khushi was about to find a chair, when she heard a hiss, "Chamkili!"

She turned around, startled.

Lisa, the proverbial snake was standing behind her.

Khushi gulped.

"So you have made good, haven't you? Came to Delhi without a stitch on your back and now you are making money on your back? Very good! Very smart! Very... very enterprising of you.", Lisa smiled, her eyes glittering with hatred and jealousy.

How could people make money on their back?, Khushi wondered. Maybe Lisaji meant that she had worked very hard. Back-breaking work! Like the kind she did in the godown entering years of cereal sales and purchase details into spreadsheets. Yes! That must have been what Lisaji meant. Khushi smiled uncertainly at her.

"Make the most of your time with ASR.", Lisa said.

Khushi nodded, smiling slightly. She would treasure very moment of their lives together. After all, they would get only 50-60 years together!

"Because it won't last. It will be over in the blink of an eye!", Lisa added, her bitter eyes burning into Khushi's.

Khushi frowned. How could 50-60 years be over in the blink of an eye?

"La found that out to her cost when you caught ASR's eye. I found that out when La caught ASR's roving eye.", Lisa said, her teeth white in the sharp light.

Khushi stared at Lisaji. What was she saying? Had Lisaji drunk too much daru? What had Lavanyaji to do with all this? Roving eye? How could an eye rove? This Lisaji was so funny!

Lisa sighed inwardly. Apparently Lucknow produced idiots. Sly innuendos were wasted on Chamkili. Only hard blows would register in her scatty brain. Lisa looked around. ASR's sister and Payal Raizada would be coming to them any moment. She had no time to waste.

"I was ASR's girl friend before La.", she said bluntly.

Khushi stared at her, her eyes wide open in shock.

Finally! Lisa almost did a victory dance in her relief.

"Who do you think took me to Paris? And bought me the fur coat that you damaged beyond repair?", Lisa asked, smirking.

Khushi could not even swallow. Her mouth felt dry, and she clenched her shaking fingers in the red skirt of her lehenga.

Lisa smiled. It was time to turn the knife.

"We had great fun together.", Lisa claimed. "He is a great kisser, isn't he?" Lisa looked as though lost in pleasant memories of the past. "And an inventive lover."

Khushi stared at her, feeling her face flush and her ears heat up.

 Lisa smiled at Khushi with pity in her eyes. "How long will you hold him, I wonder. Especially with his penchant for fashionable & experienced girls."

Khushi looked at Lisa, unable to move, like a mouse fascinated by the snake that was approaching it to kill it.
Images of Arnavji kissing Lisaji like he kissed her filled her mind. She felt sick. Her stomach churned, and she felt dizzy.

Lisa saw Payal approaching Chamkili. She had to leave now.

"Anyway, my condolences on your coming marriage!", Lisa said. She turned and walked away on her high heels.



Payal came up to Khushi, smiling. "Akashji wants to know how much longer we will be in here."



"You go out, Jiji. I need to use the bathroom.", Khushi whispered. She made her way to a stall, and closed the door after her. Just in time. She threw up in the closet, hanging on to the window ledge with pale fingers. After retching till she had no more energy to retch, she flushed, washed her mouth and face, lowered the seat cover, and then collapsed on the toilet seat, her hands and legs trembling, her chest hurting, her eyes filled with tears.

Lisaji had been Arnavji's girl friend. Like Lavanyaji. But before Lavanyaji's term. And there must have been other women before Lisaji.

She saw herself lying on her bed in Gomti Sadan, with Arnavji leaning over her... his lips slowly coming closer to hers... pressing down on hers... Many other women must have seen the same scene too. From the same angle. Of Arnav Singh Raizada leaning towards them to kiss them. Khushi shut her eyes to push away the pictures from her mind, but... 

And she had trembled in pleasure at the feel of his lips against hers. As many other women must have done before her... Lisaji... Lavanyaji...

Khushi buried her face in her hands, feeling tears slide down her pale cheeks. She was sweating profusely. She wet her hands and wiped her face and neck. The tears continued to fall.

She had known that Lavanyaji had been Arnavji's girl friend, but hadn't known what girl friends and boy friends did together. Now that she had an idea, the very thought of Arnavji with other women was revolting...

But what right did she have to be so upset? 

Lisaji and Lavanyaji had been in his life before she had entered it. A picture of Lavanyaji straightening Arnavji's tie in his office the night she had spent in the carpark in the rain flashed through her mind. She swallowed a big ball of pain and tears lodged in her throat.

She had no right to feel upset, Khushi told herself, drying her eyes, pushing away images of Lavanyaji hugging Arnavji. Before Lavanyaji, it had been Lisaji's turn to hug Arnavji. Oh... that's why she mentioned his perfume... Khushi joined the dots. Tears filled her eyes again.

Lisaji had been angry with her not for the coat, but for stealing Arnavji away from her, as she saw it. Khushi sighed, wiping away the steady stream of tears.

And Arnavji... How could he talk to Lisaji as though she were a stranger after kissing her and... and... doing things that girl friends and boy friends did? How could he say goodbye to Lavanyaji as though she didn't matter?




She would never understand this world. Or pyaar. Or people. Or Arnavji. She was not just Sanki, as Buaji called her. She was Ajeeb. Totally clueless about this world. Totally, totally unfit to live in it. Khushi rubbed her chest. It hurt. 

And Devi Maiyya had to keep her alive when she had taken her parents away! If only she could have died with Amma & Babuji! It wouldn't have hurt so much.

"Khushi...", Payal knocked on the door. "There are just 10 minutes to midnight.", she warned. "Arnavji, Akashji, & Nanheji must be waiting for us."

"Khushiji, are you alright?", Anjali's anxious question filtered in through the stall door.

"Ji..ji...", Khushi mumbled thickly. She flushed the closet to make it appear that she had been using the stall. 



"Are you alright, Khushiji?", Anjali asked, putting an arm around Khushi. "You look pale and tired."

"The heat...", Khushi mumbled.

"And you must be hungry.", Payal teased her.

Khushi tried to smile. She nodded her head, and said "And thirsty."




Arnav, Akash, & NK were waiting for the ladies.

"Khushiji! Payal Bhabi! Di! It is time! It is going to be midnight!", NK exclaimed, excited.


 

Arnav pulled Khushi close to him. "Khushi, you look pale. Are you alright?"

Khushi smiled with superhuman effort. Why spoil the night for all? "I am fine." She avoided his sharp eyes trained on her face. "Just tired."

"It will be over soon.", he soothed in a loving tone as though she were a child. "We can go home in a few minutes."

Khushi nodded, looking down at her lehenga, and straightening the hem, all to avoid his all-seeing eyes.
She looked at the lights, the balloons, the bar... The ladies in glittering clothes & the men had all gathered to count to midnight.

"10.", they shouted.

Khushi looked at the time displayed in great prominence, the smile painted on her face.

"9."

Payal hugged her in excitement. Khushi smiled.

"8."

Nanheji was smiling at her. She smiled back.

"7."

Akash Jiju had his arm around Jiji. Khushi smiled.

"6."

Anjali caught her hand and pressed her fingers, delirious with joy because all her brothers were happy and her Nani, Mami, & Mamaji were healthy and fine. And the new year would see Chotey and Khushiji's marriage! 

Khushi smiled.

"5."

"Just 5 seconds more!", squealed Nanheji. Khushi smiled at him.

"4." 

The ladies standing near her were jumping up and down in excitement. Khushi smiled.

"3." 

She could feel Arnavji standing very close to her, the warmth of his body hitting her in waves. She tried to step away, taking care to keep the smile on her face.

"2." 

Arnavji stepped near her, closing the distance she had created. Khushi drew in a deep breath, still smiling.

"1." 

There was perfect silence for a second, and then there was cacophony. Men and women were hugging friends, acquaintances, strangers, and co-workers and shouting 'Happy New Year!' in excitement.

Khushi closed her eyes as she felt Arnavji's face coming closer to hers. His lips touched the pale skin of her chubby cheek. "Happy New Year, Khushi.", he whispered.

Khushi's lips trembled as she smiled and wished him, "Happy New Year, Arnavji."

"This year is going to be phenomenal, Khushi. The best year of our lives.", Arnav whispered, his lips touching the lobe of her ear.

Khushi smiled.

Smita,Smile

Here is the interpretation to Section 3 of Part 19.


Seeing ASR and Chamkili leave the dance floor to a thunderous applause had Lisa steel herself. She witnessed a lady in gold coloured tissue saree hug them both and Akash Singh Raizada along with the half-wit was congratulating the pair. The behenji in green and pink sari was wiping away her tears of joy! She watched ASR lead the girl to a secluded corner of the room and clicked her heels in that direction. Her aim was to congratulate the love birds in her own sweet memorable way! Khushi whispered to her Arnavji that Pam and Sim would be heart broken as well as not be able to withstand it if he kept on smiling at her like he was doing now.Like what? he murmured while his eyes were feasting on her with his attention focused sharply on just Khushi.

Lisa who had come close to them purred, ASR in an apparently content, pleased, seductive drawl. Arnav turned around with a frown to see who was disturbing him. Grabbing the chance, Lisa launched herself into his arms, kissing him on his cheek. (Kissing on his cheek signifies friendship) Arnav was shocked and pulled away in reflex action. He had to blink his eyes just to check whether what he was experiencing was a nightmare or a reality. He observed the model with shuttered eyes. Making an effort to tackle the issue, while his mind refused to move away from Khushi he asked her, recollecting her name, Er.. Lisa, how had she been? Taking a deep breath Lisa in a throaty voice that oozed with insinuation she said that, she had been missing him. Not just him but even his personal fragrance.Both were unforgettable! Arnav had a quick look at Khushi. She had taken a step back and her face was a vision of terror etched. Khushi was recalling, Lisa's wild cat screech in a whining voice at the sight of her ruined fur coat. She was too upset to understand what Lisa meant and insinuated. Arnav breathed a sigh of relief. He quickly took Khushi's hand and gave it a gentle squeeze of reassurance. Khushi gulped. Lisa in her squeaky voice crooned that, it had been a long, long time and they really needed to catch up! She offered a dinner date later that night. Arnav politely refused her offer in a casual manner, saying that he was otherwise occupied and excused himself along with his date Khushi. He turned to lead Khushi away from her but Lisa voiced, who that might be? She was looking very familiar and trailed her voice as though trying to place her. Being a host and a courteous one, Arnav was forced to introduce. He said as a warning that his companion was Khushi Kumari Gupta and they were to be married in five months. But Lisa was thick skinned and chose to flick it off. Pretending to be surprised as well as shocked, she spoke in a shrill twangy voice that it was Chamkili, the errand girl in his office! The one who spoilt her fur coat? And that he was going to marry her? He gave her a curt Yes. Sizing up Khushi, she murmured deliberately in a soto voce loud enough to be heard by the pair, Well, well, wonders will never cease and added with a smirk, ASR mingling with sordid sleazy sort.. and tailed it off. Arnav's, Lisa! mind your words! in a bone chilling sonorous voice that was loud as well as clear in its implications sent a chill down the spine of both Khushi and Lisa. Pam and Sim who were watching the drama from the sidelines that they had instigated, swallowed nervously. La had outdone herself from being of any use for them, even before she had left to London. That was why they had roped in Lisa, who was known for her arrogance, temper, tantrum and all nasty things. Lisa with a smile pasted on her lips told him that she would heed his words after all their friendship goes a way long back and she would wish him well would not she? Knowing her very well Arnav told her that he didn't expect anything to such effect from her and hoped that she would enjoy the party. Saying so, he led Khushi to a more congenial company. While they walked to join others, Khushi whispered to Arnav in a soft voice that, Lisaji was very angry with her as she thinks that Khushi had spoilt her fur coat. Arnav covering his hand over the curled up fingers of hers on his arm told her that there was no need for her to be so. He knew that she hadn't destroyed the coat and the culprits were Sim and Pam. It was recorded on CCTV. Moreover Lisa had received a cheque from AR Designs covering the cost of the coat. Khushi was shocked to hear it and asked him whether he paid her for it? And all she got in answer was a Hhmm...

Later that night, when Anjali, Payal and Khushi went to the restroom to groom themselves, their feet took them towards the plush, inviting chairs for a rest. The three were having a wonderful time so far dancing and spending time with Arnav, Akash and NK. While Arnav turned to speak to a guest, Lisa sneaked stealthily into the rest room. Pam and Sim looked into each other in gleeful anticipation. Something was bound to happen with Lisa the witch, a nickname she had earned from the models,  when in charge and they were ensured of her causing some damage and hurt to the feelings. It was a dejavu as far as Lisa was concerned when somebody crossed swords with her.

Once inside the rest room, Lisa eyes spotted Chamkili standing in a corner talking to the upstart Payal Singh Raizada and ASR's sister. As she watched, Payal moved away to receive a call and ASR's sister limped to one of the dressing rooms. Khushi who was about to take a seat heard a hiss, Chamkili startling her. It was a hiss that was dripping with venom. It was a hiss from a viper that was about to strike with all its venom stored under its fangs. Khushi saw Lisa standing behind her and gulped.

The snake that was hiding behind the mantle of sophistication shed its skin.

Dripping with hatred and jealousy, with glittering eyes she stated that Khushi had made it good in life. Hadn't she? Coming to Delhi without a stitch on her back was now making money on her back? She was very good and extremely smart! It was very ambitious of her and enterprising too, beyond imagination.

Khushi wondered, how could people make money on their back? Maybe Lisaji meant she worked back-breaking hard at her work, like the work she was doing in the godown! Just like entering years of sales and purchase details of the cereals into the spread sheets. That must have been what Lisaji meant and Khushi gave her a cautious smile. Khushi in her innocence failed to perceive the bitchiness in Lisa's words and voice. She who had always seen the goodness in others was inclined to take things words for directly what they would mean. Her mind would not even think that it was a veiled sarcasm.

Lisa told her to make most of her time with ASR. Khushi nodded with an uncertain smile and thought she would definitely treasure every moment of their lives, fifty to sixty years of  togetherness. After all they would be getting only so much! Lisa broke into her thoughts in a scabrous voice saying that make most of it as it won't last long. It would be over in the blink of an eye. She had bitterness in her eyes that was trying to sear Khushi's with its venom. Khushi wondered how could one think of fifty to sixty years to be over in a blink of an eye?

Lisa in her acerbic voice informed La found that out when Khushi had caught ASR's eye. She, Lisa had found that out when La caught ASR's roving eye. She had sharpened her fangs and her white teeth was glowing in the sharp light. Khushi stared at Lisa. She wondered what was this woman saying? Was Lisaji drunk? Had she imbibed the alcohol so much that her faculties were beyond her control? Roving eye! How could an eye rove? Lisaji was surely so funny!

Lisa let out a sigh thinking she was talking to a moron. She thought it looks like Lucknow produced block heads. Sly innuendos and subtlety were wasted on Chamkili. Only hard blows seem to enter and register in this scatter-head. Lisa looked around to check. Knowing that ASR's sister and Payal Singh Raizada could come in any minute she got ready to strike.

Without wasting any time she bit her prey saying bluntly that she was ASR's girl friend before La. Khushi became numb with shock. She stared at Lisa wide-eyed. Lisa finally felt a sense of relief and did a mental jig. She asked Khushi, who did she think took her to Paris and bought the fur coat that she had damaged beyond repair? Khushi was so numb that she couldn't even swallow and her mouth went dry making her clench the red  skirt of her lehenga in a bunch with her shaky fingers. Seeing that Khushi was now attuned to her thoughts, Lisa with a sneer decided to turn the knife. Pouring out the venom hidden in the sac she claimed that they had a whale of a time when together. He is a great kisser isn't he? And of course,  very much an inventive lover. She said looking as though she had slipped down the memory lane reliving the sweet time

together. Khushi could just stare at her with her face flushed and her ear heated up. Looking at Khushi with deep pity in her eyes, she poured the last drop of her venom by wondering aloud, how long will she be able to hold ASR with his penchant for fashionable and experienced girls!

Khushi looked at Lisa unable to move, mesmerized like a mouse by the hypnotic eyes of the snake that it was getting ready to kill. Images of Arnavji kissing Lisa like he had kissed her filled her mind. She felt sick and nauseous. She felt her head spin. Lisa seeing the approaching Payal, like a sly fox quickly slinked away. Before leaving she gave a parting shot that Khushi has her condolences on her upcoming marriage!   

Payal came to Khushi with a smile telling her that Akashji wanted to know how much longer will it take the three to emerge from the rest room. Khushi who had her world turned upside down by Lisa whispered to her sister that she needed to use the washroom and asked her jiji to go out and join the others. So saying made her way to the nearby stall and reached just in time as the bile rose. With her fingers gripping the window ledge, she retched. Once feeling better she flushed it and lowered the seat cover plonked herself on it, with trembling legs and hands, hurting chest and eyes pooled with tears.

Her thoughts began to filter in. Lisaji was Arnavji's girlfriend before Lavanyaji and before her there must have been numerous others. Images of herself lying on her bed in Gomti Sadan, with Arnavji leaning over her, his lips pressing on hers came to her. Along with that the thought of many other women too must have seen the same scene with them occurred. Images of others, seeing Arnav Singh Raizada leaning towards them to kiss seared through her. Khushi shut her eyes tightly to erase such images from her mind but it was not easy.  Just with the image of him kissing her made her quiver with pleasure. The pleasure his lips gave her was something she couldn't even dream of otherwise. It occurred to her that if she derived so much pleasure from it, others too must have done before her, Lisaji, Lavanyaji and many other women, faceless to her right now. Overcome with grief, Khushi buried her face in her hands and let the tears flow down her cheeks. She was sweating profusely. Holding her hands under the tap cupping her palm she splashed water on her face and wiped her neck. But the downpour of tears was unstoppable. She had known that Lavanyaji was Arnavji's girlfriend but was not aware what it really meant. Now with a clear cut picture, just the thought of Arnavji with any other woman was revolting.

She wondered, what right did she have to be so upset. Both Lisaji and Lavanyaji had been in his life before she entered it. A picture of Lavanyaji straightening his tie in his office on the night she had spent in the carpark while it rained flashed through her mind. It brought in a huge lump in her throat making it difficult to swallow. She felt as though her heart was squeezed out of its life.

Khushi pep talked herself, saying that she had no right to feel upset. She dried her eyes, pushing away the images of Lavanyaji hugging Arnavji. Before her it was Lisaji's turn. Now she realized why Lisaji had mentioned about his perfume. At last she started to see all the conversation in a different light. Now she was able to understand what all the innuendos meant. Realizing what had gone on, her eyes pooled up. Lisaji had been angry with her not for the coat episode but for stealing Arnavji away from her. That was how she saw it. Khushi sighed wiping the tears that were unrelenting.

It also made her wonder how could Arnavji talk to Lisaji as though she were a stranger after kissing and doing all the things that the boy friend girlfriends did? How could he bid his audieu to Lavanyaji as though she never mattered?

She thought she would never understand the ways of this world. This love, these people or even Arnavji. She was not just sanki as her Buaji called her, but was an outre. She had no inkling about how this world worked. A total oddity. That was her. It hurt her badly. It made her wonder why had her Devi Maiyya kept her alive while She had deemed it fit to take her parents into Her fold. Her heart cried out if only she could have passed away along with her Amma and Babuji then she would have been spared of this hurt.

Just then Payal knocked at the door calling Khushi and proceeded to say that they were just 10 minutes away from the stroke of midnight. The menfolk must be waiting for them. Soon she heard Anjali's voice filled with anxiety filtering through the door asking, Khushiji are you alright? Her Ji came out thickly. Flushing the toilet to make it appear as though she had been using it, she came out. Anjali putting her arm around Khushi asked her why was she looking pale and tired. Was she alright? Khushi in a low voice mumbled the heat, and Payal teased her saying that she must be hungry. Khushi with a strained smile nodded and said and thirsty too.

The three men, Arnav, Akash and NK were waiting for the ladies to come out. Seeing them NK greeted them enthusiastically saying Khushiji! Payal Bhabi! Di! It is time! It is going to be midnight! He was all excited. Arnav came close to her and asked Khushi was she alright? She looked pale. Khushi with supreme effort brought out a smile, thinking why to spoil the night for the rest just because she had come across the bitter truth. Avoiding his penetrating eyes that were focused on her face, she said that she was just tired. He soothed her in a loving voice that, it would be over soon and they could go home in a few minutes. Hearing her reason he spoke as though he was cajoling a child. Khushi with her eyes glued down on her lehenga and by fiddling with the hem avoided looking at his eyes that would glean her thoughts clearly.

She looked around her. She took in the glimmering lights, the colourful balloons, the bar. The ladies in glittering clothes and the men all had gathered to count down to midnight and herald the New Year.

The count began with 10 being shouted. Khushi focused her eyes on the center clock that displayed the time, with a firm smile pasted on her face.

At 9 Payal hugged her with excitement and Khushi smiled at her.

At 8 she found a beaming Nanheji with his eyes on her making her smile.

At 7 she saw Akash Jiju wrapping his arm around Jiji making Khushi smile.

At 6 Anjali delirious with joy pressed Khushi's  fingers clasped in her hands. Anjali was filled with joy because all her brothers were happy and her Nani, Mami, and Mamaji were healthy and fine. And the New Year would see her Chotey and Khushiji's marriage! Her action made Khushi smile.

When the hand showed 5 Nanheji squealed that it was just 5 more seconds to go making Khushi smile at his excitement.

4 saw the ladies standing nearby jump with joy and excitement.

With 3 she sensed Arnavji standing quite close to her. The warmth exuded by his body enveloped her and she stepped a bit away always keeping a smile plastered on her face.

2 brought Arnav close as he closed the gap making Khushi hitch her breath, but she had her smile in place.

With 1 came the absolute silence only to be broken with the cheering Happy New Year! She could see hordes of people gathered hugging and wishing.

Khushi closed her eyes as she felt Arnavji's face nearing hers and placing his lips on her cheek and wishing her a Happy New Year Khushi in a whisper.

Khushi with a tremulous smile on her lips and wished him back, Happy New Year Arnavji. He told her that, this year was going to be prodigious and unparalleled in their lives. The very best one, he whispered against her ears with his lips planting a kiss on it. It meant that she was special and very special to him. What he felt is rendered beautifully in a song titled Special to me by Bobby Caldwell. If you get a chance do listen to it.

SPECIAL TO ME

"You are so special to me

  Loving you was surely meant to be

  And when I'm feeling blue

  You hold me close

  You've always been so

  Special to me

 

  When I think about my life

  Before I met you

  I'd wake up to this loneliness

  And long for someone new

  You have been the reason

  For me to carry on

  I can't imagine life at all

  If your love was gone

 

  When we're together

  There's nothing we can't do

  There can be no other

  I would compare to you

  You have been the reason

  For me to carry on

  I can't imagine life at all

  If your love was gone

  There could never be

  Another love for me

  ' Cause you made my

  dreams come true

  Love until the end

  We'll be lovers, best of friends

  Stay with me

  Eternally"

                                 ~ Bobby Caldwell

Khushi listening to her Arnavji's words smiled.


This update, (I am going to surprise you!) according to me, is a VERISIMILITUDE. May be I am going to be proved wrong. But I feel there are certain things that don't add up to the general perception.

First let me explain what verisimilitude is.

It is the quality of appearing to be true or real. 

It is something that has the appearance of being true or real. But may not be so in reality.

In the beginning we see Lisa making her way to Arnav and Khushi. Under the guise of congratulating them she is shooting barbs at Khushi. First she hugs and kisses Arnav on his cheeks, then she offers dinner with after dinner dessert as an extra thrown in in the form of innuendo.  When he doesn't take the bait she throws innuendo that, there is something more than friendship or employer-employee relationship. Her aim is to break the couple. What she does, is seen through by Arnav and he warns her. She even resorts to naming Khushi and say that ASR going slumming. But just the words Lisa, mind your words shuts her up. His tone and words send a chill through her spine.

But why is the question?

On the surface it looks like Arnav had an affair with her and they had a break-up. If it was a breakup it would have been a mutually agreed one.

Why am I saying so? It is because if it was not so, wouldn't she have thrown a tantrum while Lavanya was his girlfriend? Why not then but why now?

 Its because she thinks Khushi is a soft target and Lavanya would have given tit for tat.

If there was really something between them, would Arnav let her continue with his photo shoots? No never. Even if he had a relationship going on, he would have made it clear no clinging on when broken, before he entered into it. Then why was she hell bent on making their life a hell? It's because Arnav Singh Raizada had seen through her,that she wanted him not for what he was as a human being, but as an ATM. He would have been her passport to fame and fortune. If ever he had an affair with her he would have compensated. It could be the fur coat as a goodbye gift. But I am sure it was not so. Do you know why? If it was a personal gift why would he compensate from his office account at a later date when it was spoiled? Why would he even use his personal account? If it had come out of his personal or office account would he have left Pam and Sim without retribution for their misdeeds? Well, according to me he would have taken her out as his date for parties and with a kiss thrown here and there she had grown feelings for him. But those feelings were all related to the power of his credit card. Why I am stating this I will tell you later. So knowing her tantrum capability Arnav warns her. She shuts her mouth because she knows one false move her career will spiral down to oblivion. She would be a non entity in her circle. She has done all these within reasonable limit in front of him. That is why I said her allegations and talk have the quality of appearing to be true or real. Its just a plausibility that she has utilized to its fullest.

"In a fight, your doubt is a target of enemy's attack"

                                     ~ Toba Beta,                                                                 Betelgeuse Incident 

Her real target is not Arnav but Khushi the chink in his armor. This we come across in the next portion.

Seeing Khushi enter the rest room she stealthily enters while Arnav is occupied elsewhere. There she corners Khushi alone and initiates her into the world of the rich and noveau. She targets her with her bitchiness, first subtly with innuendoes, seeing that it was not understood, resorts later to on the rocks, a straight shot.

Before she does that when she starts talking to Khushi, her words So you have made good, haven't you? Came to Delhi without a stitch on your back and now you are making money on your back? Very good! Very smart! Very... very enterprising of you were ominous! Now I'll explain the power of his credit card. If Lisa was involved with ASR, then would he not have given her adequate compensation while breaking up. If he had done it why would she bitch now? She is doing so because she never received any as there was no other relation other than friendship / employee. But her aspirations to be Mrs. ASR was what that had made him keep a distance. And now she knows that it would never have been hers even though it was much coveted. She had seen how ASR had been taking care of Khushi and his love for Khushi was pouring out of him unmindful of the fact that he was in front of his acquaintances and his employees, be it part-time or permanent ones. She is jealous and that too big time, the green eyed monster had taken root in her and Pam and Sim had fanned the embers into a roaring fire to  sate their selfishness. That's why she gets herself into the eye of the storm that would eventually cause self-destruction. Lisa feeding Khushi with her reality was in all probability a self-goal. That's why I said it was verisimilitude. For her breaking Khushi was something that has the appearance of being true or real.

"A boomerang returns back to the person who             throws it. But first, while moving in a circle, it hits     its target. So does gossip and lies"

                                         ~ Vera Nazarian,                                            The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Now we come to the final section where Khushi after being exposed to the so called reality goes into analyzing mode. For her images of Arnav with her, comes into her mind and derives much pleasure just by the thought. She then remembers, when she could derive pleasure from it and wants more such moments why wouldn't others too. What she remembers now was the picture that Lisa has painted for her. Lisa has even pointed out Lavanya too now sails in the same boat. But is it really so? Does Lavanya feel bitter about it? No way. There is no comparison between Lavanya and Lisa. Lavanya though was a girl friend who held similar position as Lisa, (if Lisa was ever so) it was a very different equation. Lavanya knew though she had loved ASR, he had never reciprocated because he never felt so. Though he fought a lot against it, he was always Khushi's Arnavji. That was an irrevocable fact. Even he couldn't change it! That's why when he as Arnav, apologizes for playing with her feelings Lavanya laughed as she had got over her infatuation. One thing she knew was, only Khushi had the power to make him Arnav from ASR.

"The best mirror is an old friend"

                                     ~  George Herbert

Lavanya to her credit had seen first which way the wind was blowing and accepted it. She was not after his money. They were together as genuine friends and drifted into Girl friend-Boyfriend mode for lack of any other interest. It began as a mutual convenience and remained so on the part of ASR.

"A friend is one that knows you as you are,                   understands where you have been, accepts what         you have become, and still, gently allows you to         grow"

                                     ~ William Shakespeare

Even now, Khushi is forgetting certain facts in her sorrow.

  •     Arnav is not ASR any more. He has undergone drastic changes.
  •     It is she who was responsible for his changed attitude and behavior and not any of his so called ex-girlfriends.
  •     If Lisa was his love as she claims to be then why was she giving a chaste  kiss on his cheeks and not on his lips.
  •     A kiss on the cheek indicate friendship and a kiss on lips indicate I love you. So in front of ASR she doesn't have the guts to proclaim as she was and always has been nothing more than a friend to him.
  •     If as Lisa tells her how long she would be able to keep him with her, he could have taken advantage of her and made love to her when they were at Gomti Sadan and then thrown her away to dogs. But it did not take place not because of her but it was because of him. He reined in his passion while she pouted at his self-control.
  •     He is now very much a family oriented man while earlier he had a playboy image.
  •     If he wanted her to be like the others fashionable & experienced, why would he bring her as his date to the party where any and numerous females with skimpy clothes would have been delighted to do him favours just with a sign from his little finger. 
  •     But it is not so. It is Khushi who is making him dance to her little finger. He is so much in love that he is ready to announce to the world that she Khushi Kumari Gupta is the Empress of his Heart and he would do anything to keep it so! He does announce to his world with her by his side as well as the romantic number that had the stage sizzling with their chemistry. This is from a person who used to scorn at love. 
  •     He has done things for Khushi that he would never have done for anyone else, even his beloved Di. Change in him, overcoming his bitter past, going to Lucknow and burying his hatred and even saying that he may enter his home, Sheesh Mahal one day with his family in toto.

Confrontation with Lisa was a learning curve for Khushi that all people are neither white nor black, but are always in the shades of grey. Whether that shade tends towards black or white make their character.

When Arnav confronts her later, it will be a test of her trust. Whether she trusts venomous Lisa or her Arnavji. It will be an acid test for Arnav to see whether his genuine attempts at gaining her trust does pay dividends or not.

It is Khushi's nature not to hurt people. It is both her strength as well as her weakness. Its because of this she plasters a smile on her face though her heart was weeping bitterly. It had made her feel that she should have joined her biological parents while they had met with the accident. But this is a momentary aberration. She is a person who will bounce back. A lioness always defends her territory as well as cubs.

So will Khushi.

In all likelihood it will be she who gives the deathly blow to Lisa much to the amazement of the rest. I would love to see a strong Khushi who not only defends her love, shows her trust but also warns others of the consequences if they dare to cross the line of decency. She knows all her life she'll have face such upstarts. That's why I want this to be the proof why she, not the rest are fit to be Mrs. Arnav Singh Raizada.

"It may have happened, it may not have                   happened but it could have happened."

                                 ~ Mark Twain

In all probability this might just become my theory.

"I know that two and two make four - and should       be glad to prove it too if I could - though I must         say if by any sort of process I could convert 2 and 2   into five it would give me much greater pleasure"

                                  ~George Gordon Byron

 That's why I called this VERISIMILITUDE.

 

That's it from me. Hope you enjoy it.

Yayyy!!! First to comment on this update though I'm 2nd after it! LOL

~~~~~

Loved the update Smita... But I swear I hate Lisa to bits! Angry 

Arnav answering back to her was phenomenal but Lisa and Khushi's Washroom scene... Ouch

Highlight: 

She could feel Arnavji standing very close to her, the warmth of his body hitting her in waves. She tried to step away, taking care to keep the smile on her face.

"2." 

Arnavji stepped near her, closing the distance she had created. Khushi drew in a deep breath, still smiling.

"1." 

There was perfect silence for a second, and then there was cacophony. Men and women were hugging friends, acquaintances, strangers, and co-workers and shouting 'Happy New Year!' in excitement.

Khushi closed her eyes as she felt Arnavji's face coming closer to hers. His lips touched the pale skin of her chubby cheek. "Happy New Year, Khushi.", he whispered.

Khushi's lips trembled as she smiled and wished him, "Happy New Year, Arnavji."

"This year is going to be phenomenal, Khushi. The best year of our lives.", Arnav whispered, his lips touching the lobe of her ear.

Khushi smiled.

~~~~~~~~

The para above ^^^.. It was ADORABLE! ASR pyaar se wishing Happy New Year!!! Embarrassed I hope the misunderstandings and the havoc in Khushi's mind created by that bitch Lisa is cleared soon! Ouch

"Arnavji! I think Pamji and Simji will have a heart attack if you smile at me like this.", Khushi whispered.

"Like what?", he murmured, his smiling eyes devouring her, his full attention on Khushi.

The Devil at his Best...pretending innocent...aaahhh jaise kuch nahi samajta...

And this LISA...The Witch... Angry
"Khushi Kumari Gupta.", Arnav said. "We are getting married in 5 months." His words were a warning to Lisa, a warning she chose to ignore. 
And she will pay for this... 

"Lisaji is very angry with me, Arnavji! Because she thinks I damaged her fur coat.", Khushi whispered to Arnav as they walked away.

Our Khushi is tooo Innocent at times... 

Khushi nodded, smiling slightly. She would treasure very moment of their lives together. After all, they would get only 50-60 years together!

ATLEAST ITS A YES..IN HER MIND...ARNAV KO BATA DO KHUSHI..!! 
BUT WAIT...
Poor Khushi...that whole scene of  Khushi crying made me cry too...

ASR ko pata chalne do...this Lisa will be gone...nd Arnav Singh Raizada willl be so so angry...nd the wholw tmasha will me watched my the world...not just the CCTV camera... 

And then Me along with my Mokey frnds will do this...
