HIS 'OUT OF THE BOX' REQUESTS
Insane. This was Completely Insane. How can this be true, or is it some kind of a joke, is he here again to make fun of me, God I swear, I'll smash him with my own bare hands in front of his and my parents, but stupid girl!! How can it be a joke, when his parents are there, because as far I know them there are a sweet lot, and I'm damn sure they'll never gonna agree for such an ugly joke, So that means... that He Has Actually Came To Marry Me. I mean look at me, for heaven's sake I'm here in my faded jeans and two days old kurti, and He, he was all set to walk a ramp like a bloody model, in his dark blue suit shirt, denim jeans and a blazer with its sleeves pulled over revealing his strong forearms.
The refreshments tray stumbled from my hands, but I saved it just in time, but unfortunately, the crinkling sound of the cutlery attracted unwanted attention from all the 'people' inside, and suddenly I was the centre of attraction. And because of that, I had to drop the idea of running away from there together with the tray, but now it seemed not cool to run, especially when they have seen all the yummy refreshments I've made. So taking a deep breath, I entered the room, thinking that I'll keep the tray and will rush from there... but...but...but as always, God had planned something else for me!! *sighs*
"Kria!! sit for a while beta, don't you want to talk to us?", Mrs Singhania said.
NO, I DON'T WANT TO. But nevertheless I sat down, fidgeting with the hem of my shirt, not because, suddenly I got anxiety attacks, but because of 'His Famous Stare'. Ah!! Although, I was not directly looking at him, but from the corner of my eyes I could see that from the time I'd entered the room, his eyes were continously stuck on me, he was looking with such desperation, like a thirsty man to a well of cold water, oh! For heaven's sake, we've just met a week ago. He scrunched his eyes tightly, took a deep breath and started the conversation again.
"I know, Uncle it's very weird of me, to come and ask for your daughter's hand, now, when you've just came out of your elder daughter's wedding", he said with a convincing face, "But trust me Uncle, I really want to marry your daughter, and if you have any doubts related to me, my character, my business, you can always ask Swayam, he'll give you every detail!"
"No son, it's not like that, I trust you!! It's just that Kria is too young right now to get married, she doesn't know anything about it", my Pa replied sensibly, Thank God! There are still some sensible people left in this room.
"I know Sir, but I've a suggestion. You see its four years since I'm living in London, so it'll take one more year for me to have a UK citizenship, and some more time so that I can complete all the formalities for Kria's citizenship as...", he gulped down, as if it was something difficult to say, "as My Wife, so it'll buy Kria much time, so that she can learn all the things, but honestly saying I don't want her to learn anything, we'll accept her the way she is", he said
my jaw dropped in shock, is he for real!!, but immediately I recovered myself, and when I glanced around, I saw that I was not the only Ghai, who was shocked, both my parent open - mouthed, was staring Reyaansh as if he had grown two heads, but they eventually recovered from the shock, and soon an admiring feeling took over their face.
"Well I guess then, we'll have to ask Kria about it, after all, it's her life we are talking about!!", Pa replied matter-of-factly.
"Sir, can I request something?", he asked.
"Yeah, ofcourse Boy!! Go ahead".
"Can I talk to Kria... alone", he asked hesitatingly.
"That you have to ask Kria!!", Reyaansh looked expectantly at me.
"Okay... let's go to the terrace", and an expression of unexpected surprise flashed on his face, I really wanted to talk to him, to clear out a few things, to know what was going on in his 'intelligent' brain, so I took him on the terrace, and started to throw all my doubts, all my questions on him.
"Why are you here, as I'm damn sure you're not here to marry me, we hardly know each other, and above all, out of all the people, you hate me the most!! It was so clear from your every action... then why are you here, to make fun of me, if you think, that I'm dying here to marry you, then let me tell you Mr, you are living in a fantasy, because I don't give a damn to it, get that straight!! And... what about your that girlfriend... what was her name??...Yeah Charlie, with whom you were sooo comfortable, not that I was jealous, but yeah!! So what about her!! Or lemme take a guess..."
I was continously pacing to and fro on the terrace, saying whatever was coming in my mind, as I was so much irritated about something, I don't know why, and he, he was sitting there in a relaxed mode, enjoying his coffee, all his anxiety and nervousness, which I witnessed in front of my parents, had vanished in thin air, but after sometime, he interrupted me.
"Woah! Woah! Girl, stop before you come up with another of your wild guesses!!", he finally stood up, and came in front of me.
"Oh Hello Mr!! My guesses are not wild, in fact they are always very sensible and sophisticated! ", I replied with a raised chin.
"Sensible and sophisticated! Really!! So, what do you have to say about your guess of me being a thief, because somewhere you also knew, someone so handsome and dashing like me, can never be a thief!!", he said smugly.
"The Great Mr Reyaansh Singhania, the most conceited and self absorbing, let me tell you that you are...",
"Charlie is already engaged...", he interrupted me.
I opened my mouth, but nothing came out of it. My voice had just died somewhere in my throat. How can that be true, I mean they were so cozy and into each other as if the whole world didn't exist for them.
I was so lost in my thoughts that I didn't even realise, that he had cupped my shoulders, and had dragged me to the bench, and was now on his knees in front of me.
Who is this man? It feels like I don't know him at all!!
He took a deep breath, and started.
"Charlie was engaged, month ago to one of our common friend, and her long time boyfriend, we both... are like best buddies, we know each other from school, she is a complete tomboy, and was always like a best friend to me, not an inch more than that!!", he said all this in a clarifying way to me, but why was he justifying himself in front?? Oh yeah! He'd come to marry me!!
"Now, you don't have reason to say No I guess", he said.
"Nor do I have any reason to say yes!!", I counter backed him.
"If it helps, you don't have to change yourself, or to learn any house chores, because I lo... Umm!! I like you just the way you are!!", he assured expectantly.
Now that was something, because my whole life, I just hated one thing, Ghar Ke Kaam, if saying yes to him would free me from this, I would be glad to accept it, after all, a known enemy is far better than a stranger!! But right now I don't want to get married.
"Don't you think it's too early, to get married. I mean you Should have planned out!!", I questioned him.
"Don't you worry about it, this I'll handle, you just tell me is that a yes from you??", he asked.
"We'll see, don't you think we should go down, our parents must be waiting for us", I wanted to keep my answer a mystery for him, my little revenge from him.
"O...okay!!", now he was a bit worried. Good for him.
We went downstairs, and sat down.
"So Kria, what do you think??", Pa asked me. Everybody was staring at me, like anytime I'll blast, but Reyaansh, he was looking so hesitatingly, as if he expected me to say No!! But you know, I like to surprise people!!
"Umm... yes", I replied shyly (although, I wasn't feeling at all shy, but you see krna parta hai!!)
And a relief spread on their faces, now the confident Reyaansh was back. Oh!! I hate him soo much.
"So sir, now I wanted to make a request, Sir, since I told you before, that it'll take at least 2 years for me to complete all the formalities for Kria's citizenship, so I suggest we can marry in one week, and in fifteen days, I'll have to go back, so in that time, if you don't mind, can you allow Kria to complete her graduation, till the time she'll finish, I'll be back to India. What do you say??", if my jaw was not attached to my skull, it would have definitely touched the floor.
I mean, how can he know that this thing is what I wanted, my whole life. He was surprising me Alot!! I guess, all this while, I was creating false prejudices about him in my mind, I was too hasty, in judging him, might be he's not such a bad person, I guess, I still have, many sides of him, to discover, but right now, all I can feel for him was awe and lots'n'lots of respect.
"If you want it, I don't think we should have any problem, so that means, it's a Yes from our side", Pa replied joyfully, and the 'moun meetha karana' thingy started. But today, I can say, I learnt a very important lesson.
"NEVER JUDGE A BOOK, BY IT'S COVER"
