CHAPTER 20C- MahaUpdate
The following night, Arnav and Khushi got ready for the D-day, for the plan. Both were stressed out but not letting on their face, trying to be force to reckon for each other. They would be each other's pillar, not letting the other fall, hold the other of one crumbled.
"Have fun guys," his mother patted their cheek.
"Don't worry I will take care of them sweetheart," NK winked at her, taking her in side hug.
"Badmash," she smacked his arm.
"Ouch sweetheart," NK said dramatically.
Although the officer told them not to come but they persisted to be around. Since, Arnav was from an influential background.
So, they had told at home they were all going for hangout, for which his parents were happy.
As estimated, they were in the exotic pub by 8:15 PM, music blared in the place, people drinking and boozing, people dancing, being so intimate.
Khushi glared at Arnav, "you used to come here, and dance closely to these women?" She gritted her teeth as they walked to a empty corner after nodding at the police officers on position, in their hide-outs. The trio were in darkness now, no one from the crowd could see them but they could see everything clearly, specially the entrance.
"That is past," he hugged her from behind, calming her, which she did as she realized that she was being jealous. "I love you now, I will love you forever."
She sighed and hugged him back.
"where is Shree?" Arnav quipped.
"No idea," Khushi riposted, with her lip twitched at side, as she flitting her eyes around, looking through the crowd, she didn't attend this kind of parties as she didn't like. Even not for the peer pressure, she always did what she liked.
NK checked his watch and said, "it is about time he reaches here."
"Let me call him," Khushi suggested and fished out her phone dialing his number but it went to voicemail. "He is not picking up guys," her orbs looked wary, there was fear.
Arnav pulled her in a hug, "Shh he will come, don't worry."
She calmed in his arms. "Everything will be fine," she comforted herself along them.
"Yes, tum ho na," Arnav adored her.
She looked at him with a smile but things soon started to heat up, NK was not showing and they saw Ashok entering. Worry gwaking them, the atmosphere so rigid. The trio kept looking at each other and then Ashok, who danced with a woman.
"Where has Shree been stuck?" Khushi was getting hyper now.
At the precise moment, her mobile vibrated, she took a deep breathe seeing Shree's call. "Hello, where are you Shree? He is here," she muttered, displeased.
"Guys, I won't be able to come, in the way, coming here, I got hit by a car," Shree was wincing but found it necessary to inform them. He was in hospital, doctor attended to him and after that he called them right away.
Khushi was concerned for him, "I hope you get fine soon, don't worry we will handle somehow," she assured him. She looked at Arnav and NK, she said, "he won't be able to come, he met with an accident," hope was puffed out.
Arnav dialed to Mr Rao, who picked right away, although not present but he would stay in contact. "Sir, NK met with an accident," Arnav expressed.
"Oh God," Rao was befuddled. "What will we do now? We don't have enough time to explain someone and send," he was distraught.
"Guys, we have to lead it out on ourself, although there is security arranged but they are not prepared," NK said, seriously.
"You are right," Rao seconded.
They all started thinking about some plan, they were irritated, in tension.
"What are we going to do?" Arnav was exasperated.
Their anger boiling as they saw Ashok doing some secret drug dealing with some young aged people.
"I will replace Shree," Nk pointed out.
Arnav was frustrated, he raked his hairs, "Not possible, he had seen you with me before."
Exhaling, "I will go," Khushi said with determination.
"No," Arnav said sternly.
"NK," Khushi signaled NK to leave them alone taking along the phone but keep an eyes on Ashok, he obeyed. Sighing, she looked at Arnav and cupped his face, "Arnav this is important, we have to take benefit of each advantage. And you are here, I know you will intervene. I know you will keep me safe. Please let me do this for us," she said softly.
His throat parched, he was scared. "Khushi, he is dangerous."
"Tumhare saath se, koi daar bada nahi, (with you support, no fear is big). I can win over against the world just by having you beside me. Only you." Her eyes were so intense.
He swallowed and nodded, "I am here," he told her. "Keep you phone nearby and also just signal me if you judge any foul play. Anyways, I will intervene if I see things getting too much."
"Alright," she promised.
NK came back with the phone and gave to Khushi, who explained everything and Rao agreed as reluctantly as Arnav. Khushi's persistence won but he promised to be there as soon as possible. "I should have been there at first place," he complained, "but I am coming now, I will take lead of it. I can't put any of you in danger."
"Ok sir." All agreed and NK gave them some privacy.
Khushi and Arnav looked at each other, heart trepidation. She kissed on his cheek and looked in his eyes intensely, "I love you."
His eyes moistened, she had still not forgiven him and thus this I love you, at this moment heaved his heart, there was dread. "I love you too." He pulled her in a hug. "Be careful."
"I will be." She comforted him.
Horror brewing in his heart. He didn't want to let her go, her eyes fixed on his as she walked back, their hands disentangling, gliding away, and they were parted. His heart felt heavy. Her heart felt galloping with uneasiness. But they were doing for each other. She was doing for his freedom. He was doing for her determination.
Khushi went to washroom, disheveled her hairs and smudged her kohl a little, giving her a druggy look. She adjusted her microphone and the spy camera in her purse.
She sighed, took few deep breathes and walked in the party, wobbling on her foot. "JERKS! ALL ARE JERKS!" she swore as she sat on the stool by bar, two seats away from Ashok. "A**holes!" she let out colourful words. She looked at the barman, she whispered but loud enough for Ashok to hear, whose gaze was on her slender figure. "You know! I have been buying from those morons here and heard someone is caught from their gang, what was his name?? Raizada??? AMAN??" Her eyes flickered, "HAN Arnav Singh Raizada, his name is Arnav Singh Raizada, I saw in news and my friend told me about him too! The bloody molester and drug dealer. I will never buy from them again. I WILL CHANGE MY SUPPLIER," she said with a flapping of her hand.
Ashok took the opportunity and approached her. "Hey babes," Khushi cringed inwardly but didn't show it much.
"Who the hell are you?" she scoffed. "Don't turn my mood off further," she blasted.
"You relax, I heard your talk. We are the one who deals around this area. I assure you Arnav Singh Raizada has nothing to do with us!" he didn't want to let go his treasure. One person pulling out meant losing much more buyers.
"You liar! I know you are saying nonsense," she blared. "It was on news all over... all over," she stuttered and took a drink, and gulped in a go. "Police.. found drug in his bag. My friend said, he came here every night... he is the one. You liar!" she spat. "I can kill anyone for drugs but not get caught! I will find another supplier," she hiccuped.
"I am not lying. Arnav Singh Raizada isn't involved. I planned all. Neither he raped nor he had those drugs, I planted all. All of it to create a strong case against him, to send him to jail, for money. We are safe, you can buy from us," he assured.
"You are lying to save your a**" she gritted, to probe him.
He guffawed, "you don't believe me, see this," he shew her the video, where Arnav was sleeping, and they planted Raima in the room, tousling everything and Ashok unclothing Arnav and finally he plotted the drug in the wallet. Khushi was aghast. "Now do you believe," he looked up and saw her mysterious smirk. He had suspicion and his eyes went to the figure emerging behind her from darkness. "Arnav!" Ashok gaped.
Looking back at Khushi, Ashok's eyes were widened. "You!"
"I, Khushi," she replied with smug smile.
He recognized her by her name, Arnav took her name so many times after they patched up."I won't leave you," he grunted and pulling her in swift movement, he swirled her around. Breaking the bottle on counter, he picked glass piece against her throat.
Arnav saw the act, and broke in a run to save her but Ashok had her under his hold. His heartbeat stopped. "Ashok leave her." Arnav was traumatized.
The police surrounded him too.
"No, if I am gone, she is gone," he said with a creepy look.
"Arnav!" Khushi called out for Arnav.
Arnav's heart bled to see her in that state, so vulnerable.
"Leave her, I will give you all you want, money, property, everything, please leave her," Arnav pleaded, he was to give all his wealth.
"HAHA and you want me to believe you. You will hold me back as soon as I leave her. I don't care anymore, all I want now, is to break you. I will take her with me, fu*k her and then go to jail," he laughed like an insane man.
"NO, SHUT UP!" Arnav was enraged and tried to walk to him.
"Stay away you bas***d," Ashok warned him as he pressed the piece of glass on her neck.
"Ahh!" she whimpered in terrible pain, the press of the exertion of the glass piece was making it bleed along Khushi and Arnav's tears
"Leave her please, kill me instead, please leave her," Arnav begged, he was frantic.
Rao arrived right then, "Ashok leave her, we will give you an immunity," he promised him.
"NOO!" he yelled. "You are all liars." He looked at Arnav. "Killing you? That will be no fun. I want to ruin, see you destroyed, you are a loser and I will show it to you. You bas**rd,"
Khushi opened her eyes and looked at Arnav, haziness in front of her eyes. She blinked away her tears and saw tears in Arnav's eyes. How could she be weak? No, not anymore.
She caught Arnav's eyes, and she blinked her eyes. "Ashok I am ready to go with you, this hurts, I can't take it," she pleased.
"Oh, babes, you are so easy, I will have fun with you," he giggled and loosened his hold a little, but not freeing her, "but not just yet, you are my pawn, my guarantee to go out of here," he mumbled.
Smirking, Khushi kicked her elbow in stomach while her other harm held his arm on her throat so he could not pierce her throat. Arnav was by her side in a wink. "Khushi," he sighed in relief and took her behind him. Before the police could overtake, Arnav gave two three rough punches to Ashok, who was still disoriented from her kick.
"Mr Raizada stop we will handle it," Rao overtook, they confiscated Ashok's mobile while arresting him.
Arnav was not satisfied but he backed for Khushi, her neck was bleeding, she was hissing as her hand tried to stop the flow.
"Khushi!" He held her hand. "Are you fine?"
"Arnav, first aid till ambulance arrives!" NK came rushing with the first aid, he had been livid at the scene.
"I am fine, it is a small gash, no need for ambulance," she gurgled as Arnav cleaned her and did the bandage, tenderly, carefully.
"Shut up!" Arnav gritted his teeth. "Enough of your ordering for the day. I have heard too much and now you need to listen me." He raked her hairs and pulled her near. "You convinced to let you handle him and see where you are. Now you have to listen to me, got it?"
"Yes boss," she saluted and she was taken to the hospital.
