Akka's crush & Grated coconut
Nandan had to be dropped home too and in the ultra wealthy they didnt send kids alone in the car with the driver how ever reliable the driver was
Manny was nowhere around when they went downstairs... Nandan was extremely affectionate, insisting she swing him in her arms too like she swung Shravu
Shravu animatedly desrcribed the COOLEST GADGETS, THE MOST WONDERFUL TOYS NANDAN had
"Wlll get over it... u get what u get" she said softly but firmly
He was in the driveway already by the time she intervened and separated two fights between the tykes ...
"there is a basement too chithi,they have SO MANY ROOMS I cud play hide and seek all day"
"Oh great!!" "A ultra rich NICE friend, why is the world so screwed up? II wondered
The moment Shravu met R&B
He started quizzing "Slowest mammal?"
"three toed sloth"
Tiniest bird" Shravu made tiny with both fingers
Drawing a BIG GLORIOUS smile from the French speaking dude
"the bee hummingbird"
Shravu flung himself into R&B's arms... he lifted him to 7 feet...
"Hes taller than u chithi.." Shravu gushed
"Arghhh!" "How do u know everything? Shravu sulked at R&B
"Chithi HE KNOWS EVERYTHING" hugging him...
"He is God kanna" she said dryly...
If a smile occured in his face, she did not want to know
Shravu quizzed him all the way to Munirka, or Nandan demanded his attention... she furiously texted Baldev about work
And checked and responded to email...
The boys got off and raced up the stairs to the three bedroom Munirka flat...
They did the stairs together, avoiding racing kids... listening to evening soaps/shows... and FM blaring from radios from the apartments along the way...
Bala opened the door
"Hello Nandan" he beamed
Nandan just ran to Shravu's room
She stood flabbergasted... he wore a navy cargo shorts and a brick and navy check shirt with shoulder straps...
Bala looked confused... "Nandan's Uncle... Samyukta's sister" II INTRODUCED
KADAVULE Gawd!!.. WHY DOES HE NEED TO COME UP? ITS NOT LIKE THE HOUSE IS IN A WAR TORN REGION...
Bala literally dragged the Rakshasan inside
He walked in with the expression he usually has, sombre inscrutable... EXCEPT WHEN HE IS MESSING WITH ME IN BED
HIS EYES DANCE A SALSA ALL OVER ME... "Oh Raman Bhalla?" Bala said... ALL KNOWING
Akka... when I kill this man, I am sorry I will have to KILL YOU TOO
WHY DID U TELL ATHIM EVERYTHING?
My LOVELY SAALI... taller than me Saali.." he gushed hugging her
R&B DID NOT TAKE OFF HIS FOOTWWEAR
"Mr Bhalla u need to take those flip flops off... u can go home if u like... We got here fine... she smiled and hissed
He did PROMPTLY.. walking the mosaic floor...
Bala's Athai (Dad's sister)SAT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LIVING ROOM FLOOR GRATING COCONUT... NO COCONUTS... 6 8 10 OF THEM IN A HUGE NEWS PAPER,
the old fashioned way with the wooden grater anchored under the calf...
Bala and Raman talked about the "show case" that housed things of pride... their wedding pictures etc
"ARE U HERE KANNA... THANKS SO MUCH KANNA"Vandu yelled from the kitchen... I am making paneer pakora di... u came at a great time...
Sun TV blared for Athai...
Vandu came out and stared... WHO IS THIS DI? BALA YAARU KANNA? Who is it Bala Bala cleared his throat and said "Raman Bhalla... Nandan's Uncle" IVANA? VANDU GASPED...
AYYO... I HAVE NO CHOICE AKKA NOW I HAVE TO PUSH U OFF THE 3RD FLOOR BALCONY
HERE, HERE IS A TOWEL WIPE THAT DROOL OFF
II squirmed and stood right in front of her 5'4" sister
ULLA POLAMA... shall we go in?
IVANA? IS IT HIM? she said LOUDDDLY
and stared at Athai grating coconut
Vandu quickly pounced on Athai and began clearing stuff up much to II's chagrin
WHY BE PRETENTIOUS? HES NOT OBAMA, AVANA VERATTU... CHASE HIM OFF
She whispered... silently behind vandu "Please sit Raman... what would u like to have?" "i am good I just came to drop Shravu off
II walked over to the man "He is dropped and landed... u can go"
AND... HE SAT DOWN... IN THE SOFA
Bala started talking about cricket the dude tried to be interested
Athai "YAARU IVAN?" who is he? LOUDDDLY
II: Athai ivana daan konnuttu na jail po poren (I am going to kill him and go to prison)(hard of hearing Athai strained to understand as Vandu smacked her)
II: I am moving out of town before I pick Shravu up next time
Vandu instructed Athai to wrap up... she forced II to clean the living room
Bala almost bodily pushed the 75 year old to the bedroom
Vandu dragged her inside to the kitchen
IVANA? SHE BEGAN...
II picked up the knife "ONE MORE WORD KA... I will send it thru"
Vandu started rolling on the floor
HE IS SO HANDSOME... OMG... HE IS HOTTT... HE IS YOUR RAKSHASAN? ISHITA... ARE U BLIND? No! said II I AM GETTING THERE BUT NOT YET... WHAT HAPPENED TO UR FACE? KANNA? U can worry about me later ka, GO CHASE HIM OFF.. PLEASE... II begged
Vandu went out... BUT TO GET SODAS FROM THE FRIG...
She poured them out
YOUR ENEMY IS SO HOT I WILL GO GIVE IT TO HIM... I WONT SEND U AMMA FORCED ME TO NOT GET AN ACCOUNTING DEGREE... AMMA FORCED ME TO MARRY BALA... WHAT WAS I THINKING Vaya moodreya? Will u shut up Akka? II pleaded
HE IS TOO HANDSOME Ishita... IS HE MARRIED?
YA, HE HAS TWO KIDS third is on the way...
CHHE.. WHAT A TRAGEDY SHE SAID, looking really bummed for a second II wondered what was wrong with Akka
WENT OUT HANDED THE GUY THE SODA AND ASKED HIM
"when is the baby due?"
"She was born Thursday, Laasya" the deep husky voiced dude said..
"Your niece? Bala asked
R&B nodded, when he could use gestures or nods he usually didnt speak
AYYO... NOW I KNOW ALL THIS ABOUT HIM Rakshasane...
The apartment smelled like incense after the evening diya... the kitchen smelled like curry leaves
"Oh no! I meant YOUR THIRD baby" SAID AKKA AT THAT EXACT SECOND "Oh I am not married yet" he said softly
It was my darling sister's prank then... Vandu gushed... and began to drool again
II banged her head on a kadhai hanger in the kitchen
Vandu came in "Ethana kozhuppu di onakku... what gall"
II: HE IS HORRIBLE AKKA LET HIM GO
NOT TO ME... I WILL BE WILLING TO LEAVE BALA...
AYYO SO HANDSOME
II blsuhed... softly slowly... but blushed nevertheless
Vandu quickly began preppring for paneer pakoras...
AND SERVED IN LESS THAN 20
II contemplated placing some explosive material within the paneer slices
Couldnt find any in Akka's kitchen
Vandu dragged her to the living room...
THEY FOUND THEMSELVES SITTING SIDE BY SIDE
Bala and Vandu across...
The boys screeching and chasing each other
The phone rang and the front door bell rang
Rakshasan ate almost half of what was given to him
GHatothgajan! (A mahabharata character) she cursed..
Vandu watched II not eat ANY of her favorite snack and wondered... she acted as if it stung her lips... she looked flushed and sore...
A thought struck II.. she gleefully whispered "So we should be EVEN AFTER THIS? "I wont go THAT FAR, may be DOWN TEN BUCKS" he said EQUALLY SOFTLY
