Arnav : Prove it .
Arnav said with pain . Manik immediately bought a dupatta with which they where playing . Arnav held the cloth with only one hand . I know I'm not talented enough , so I used my two hands .
I seriously didn't want to play all this . But I'm left with no other choice .
Aisha : One hand ?
Arnav : One hand is enough .
Manik : One , two , three and start !
Arnav simply stood in his place . I was pulling the cloth as hard as I could but there was no difference in his position . He stood still . Suddenly he pulled the cloth at once and I ...
I ended up in his arms . My head was on his chest and I clutched his arms tightly . I looked into his eyes raising my eyes a bit .
I couldn't read him .
Arnav : Stop over estimating yourself Khushi .
He gently pushed me back . I kept looking at him and he ignored me . He directly made his way out of the living room .
I was bit depressed . But what else can I expect ?
Jiju , jiji and Aisha left Delhi . We gave them a nice send off .
I'm in my home now packing everything for me to leave Delhi .
Khushi : Aap dono Bhi apna saaman pack kijiye . [ You both too pack your stuff ]
Bua ji : Naya Sheher, Naye log . [ New place and new people ] . Don't know how will we adjust there .
Khushi : Devi Mayya sab kuch samhaalegi . Aap chinta mat kijiye . [ Devi Mayya will take care of everything . You don't worry . ]
Amma : Khushi , you have to prove yourself . You have to show everyone who is against you that this is the right decision of your life . God bless you .
I hugged Amma .
And there was a knock on the door .
Khushi : I will check .
I wore my dupatta and entered the hall . I opened the door and saw Anjali bhabhi with her lovely smile on her face . I smiled back .
She entered the house and I offered her some water .
Anjali : I came here to help you in the packing . How can you three manage so much ? So even Sheetal accompanied me . Here she is .
bhabhi pointed out at Sheetal who entered the house just now .
We entered my room and started to pack my clothes first .
Sheetal : Seriously Khushi ? You are going to wear churidars there ? Are you mad ?
Khushi : Haan what else can I wear .
Anjali : I think Sheetal is right . You are going to be an actor . You have to change your dressing style .
Sheetal : That doesn't mean you have to wear short frocks now . Long skirts and frocks , kurtis will do .
Anjali : And you need a lot of cosmetics too . We need to shop . Why shouldn't we go just now ?
Khushi : Now ?
Anjali : Okay wait . I think tomorrow is a good for buying new things . So we will go tomorrow . What do you say Aunty ?
Amma : Okay beta . But I think it will cost a lot .
Anjali : Don't worry Aunty , there are many stores in Delhi who gives us discount after all I'm sister if the ASR .
We all laughed . We had lunch together and made a list of what all we need to buy . We rechecked it thrice or more to see we didn't skip out anything .
I took my money and Anjali bhabhi picked me up . But she got Arnav along with her .
Anjali : Chottey drop us in the mall and then you go to your office .
I saw him nodding .
Anjali : And don't forget to send the driver there .
He nodded again . Then he dropped,us in the richest mall in Delhi . I always heard of this place but never thought of buying something here . I don't know what I will shop over here . And I don't even know how much I'm going to waste my money over here .
Bhabhi took me to various shops . She made me buy a few skirts , kurtis , long printed frocks , t shirts , pyjamas an much more .
She paid all the bills . I asked her not to . How can I make others buy for me ? I know she got a huge discount on the bills because she is from ASR's family , in fact his own sister .
Then she took me to the accessory sections and bought a huge collection of accessories .
We had our lunch in the food court . No doubt that I was having fun but I was only thinking of Arnav he was very normal in the morning . That means he is fine now .
Bhabhi was talking to Manik and Shyam bhai . And my phone ringed . I didn't check who the caller was assuming that it could be my mother . But I was wrong .
Khushi : Hello .
Arnav : Where is di ?
He asked . I didn't know what to say . I was just dumbstruck . Bhabhi took the phone from me and spoke with her brother .
I don't know what he spoke but di seemed to be more happier than before . Don't know why she is so happy . I asked her the reason .
Anjali : You will get to know soon .
She said .
Then we carried on to the makeup section . I first time realised that people spend more than 1000 on a simple foundation !
Anjali bhabhi bought me makeup products of the leading companies - MAC , Lakm , Loreal and much more . And all of them are not less then 1000 except a few lip blams and lipsticks .
It was almost night now . And we were waiting for the car to come . It came but with Arnav . So this was the reason why bhabhi was happy , I thought .
Bhabhi came along with me inside the house . Arnav helped us in getting my stuff inside .
Amma : Why did you waste so much of money Anjali . Khushi didn't even spend a penny other than for the food .
Anjali : Aunty why are you both fighting with me for this ? Don't worry I will make Khushi pay a big penalty for all this .
We all smiled but my mother wasn't satisfied .
Today I went to my friends . I mean we met in the caf .
Mahira : I think he loves you more than you know . More than we know . We all saw how he hanged out with that Swathi in school .
Usha : absolutely . I was so surprised when I got to know he loves her .
Khushi : As if I was not . But am I doing the right thing leaving him here .
Mahira : You have to get some space for yourself and Arnav won't let you get that when you are here .
Usha : Exactly . But Khushi this is what you want from your life right ? You want to be self-made . So go ahead .
Khushi : Mumbai ... It's scaring me .
Mahira : Why can't we three stay there in Mumbai in the same house . Even we both have to be there for our work !
Usha : That's an amazing idea .
Khushi : But my family is coming along with me .
Mahira : We all can stay together .
Khushi : Yeah but it depends where my studio is .
Then later we discussed about their lives and spoke some nonsense . I actually had a great time with them .
The whole day was amazing .
Anjali bhabhi now took me to the biggest salon of Delhi - Page3 .
The rest of the day , I spent on my day by pampering my skin , mood and body .
This is the second last day in Delhi . And Mummy and bua ji took me to the temple .
I am wearing orangish honey coloured georgette saree with white strips on it .
I was climbing the stairs and realised that Arnav was there . We both saw each other at the same time .
I became numb . Looking at him . His condition was similar to mine . We kept looking at each other blank .
Amma : Khushi come fast .
I nodded . I clutched the pleats of my saree and the thali in my hand as tight as I could . I'm nervous facing him . He was calm for the past few days doesn't mean he remains the same . He can turn into a beast in no time .
We entered the mandir and saw the Raizada family there . Everyone smiled at me . Aunty too .
Khushi : Namastey .
I said folding my hands . They smiled .
Bhabhi said we all came for a Pooja . But Amma didn't inform me about this . May be she thought I will not come if I knew Arnav also came here .
As I thought about Arnav, he appeared in front of me .
Anjali : Arrey ! I forgot the offerings in the car itself !
Khushi : I'll go get it .
I am already waiting for a chance to escape and I got one . I instantly went to the exit though I heard bhai saying that the offerings are there from far .
I came to the other staircase , someone caught my arm and turned me 180 degrees .
I saw Arnav so close with my big eyes . A cold chill ran across my spine . I was looking at him nervously while he was calm or I rather say expressionless .
He is clutching my arms as if he has no plans to leave me and his eyes fixed on me .
Arnav : Bhaag jaane se kuch Nahi milta .
He said straight in his ASR mode . I looked into his eyes . And he was in his pure ASR mode . I looked at his well toned muscles covered by his three piece suit . I was clutching his coat .
We kept looking at each other as if we had no other work . I couldn't figure out his expressions nor I was able to leave his eyes .
But my mind won over my heart . I looked at my hands which were holding his coat shamelessly .
I left him immediately . I looked at the other side . He saw me and shifted his gaze to the other side .
We remained like this for a minute or two . I slowly turned to the other side but he didn't . Neither I looked at him nor I left that place immediately ..
I made up my mind and ran back into the temple .
I collided with Bhabhi who had a horrified look on her face as if she's caught doing something wrong
Khushi : What happened Bhabhi ?
She immediately hid her phone .
Anjali : Nothing Khush was searching for you . Just a few more minutes prayer is going to start .
I nodded and we both joined our families .
After five to ten minutes we started our pooja
Aunty and Uncle started the Pooja followed by Shyam bhai and Anjali Bhabhi . Bhabhi handed the thali to me . All the while Arnav stood behind me making me least concentrated and more scared .
I prayed to God and asked him to make everything fine . But I was uncomfortable feeling Arnav behind me . The air if full of restlessness .
Bhabhi gestured Arnav to take the plate from me . He came forward . We both looked at each other with our big eyes . I quickly forwarded the thali and he caught the plate and his fingers touched mine . I looked at him with my big eyes and he too did the same . I quickly withdrew my hand .
He took the thali and prayed God , not with devotion for sure .
