Chapter 34 - New bonding .
Draupadi smiled as she entered her friend's house , she could hear laughter and shouts from the living room itself . She climbed the stairs up to Hidimba's room.
As she entered the room she saw the whole room filled with different items and goods .
Seeing this brought a smile to the beautiful face as what's this prepared for clicked on Draupadi's mind.
As she entered the room she saw her bestie Chitra decorating a curd matki with flowers .
"OMG u started preparing for the wedding already ! And what's this huh u even made the saipatha . "Complained Draupadi keeping her hands in her waist in a childish voice .
"Do not worry Drau we have left plenty of important work for you "Chita replied smiling .
"Thank u . " Draupadi smiled as she sat down .
"Starting with this ..." Chita said as she passed Draupadi a tray in which two fishes were placed .
"What's this ?" Draupadi asked confused not even taking the tray.
"You need to decorate this fish . "Hidimba replied . "Just like this one " she continued and showed two fishes which were decorated as such . They were placed inside a cloth made of velvet decorated with jari shaped like a fish .
"Yuk ! U both know how much I hate fish . I do not even eat it ! And you are telling me to touch it and decorated it .
"Draupadi said making a horrified face.
"Please I will do anything else but not decorating this fish please please "she begged . Both Chitra and Hidimba looked at each other and burst into a laugh.
"We were just kidding Drau"Chitra 's answer brought a relief to Draupadi .
"Your work is shopping for Jeeja ji " Chitra said looking at Hidimba and blinked her eyes and Draupadi laughed joined by Chitra whereas Hidimba went red.
"Jeeji ki pehle , jeeji k baad, mere jeeja ji "both Chitra and Draupadi sang making Hidimba blush .
"Okay shopping is good for me . "Draupadi said after sometime and looked onto the list .
Her eyes widened looking at the long list . 'Shopping for men ain't fun 'she thought as she saw the list full of items to be bought which was all boring .
Everyone laughed on Pandav's dinning table as Bheem cracked a joke again .
"Looks like Bheem Bhai is really excited! "Everyone laughed at Nakul's comment and Bheem eyed him angrily .
"Arjun , Nakul and Sahadev come home early on Friday " Kunti said after the laughter died .
"Why Mom ? " asked Arjun as he drank water .
"We have to go to your soon to be Bhabhi's house for the supari ceremony "replied Kunti smiling.
"Supari ceremony ! What's that ? "Nakul asked looking confused . He looked at Arjun who shrugged his shoulders and looked at his mother for the answer but to their surprise an unexpected voice replied .
"It is the ceremony in which the boy's mother goes to the bride's house with gifts accepting the girl as a bride. " Sahadev replied and made everyone in the table surprised . The one who never opened his mouth was today talking !
"Shame on you Arjun and Nakul . U don not know anything about wedding ceremonies. Look Sahadev knows more than you two " Bheem said teasing them.
"Bheem bhai ,Why is it necessary for us to know about wedding ceremonies when you are the one marrying " retorted back Arjun . " and about Sahadev ,guess he is already ready for marriage " he continued under his breath which has only heard by Nakul . Both of them laughed inside their hearts and hi five each other under the table .
"By marriage , Ma what do u think about your fourth bahu ? " Nakul said smiling naughtily .
The word fourth bahu grabbed everyone's attention especially Arjun .
"What about my fourth bahu Nakul ?" Asked Kunti curiously .
" I mean to say nowadays you do not bring new relations for Arjun Bhai na " Nakul started his play making everyone surprised .
"And why Should she bring relations for me " Arjun asked pointing his eyes before Kunti could answer .
"No no I just mean that if mother wants her bahu then she should start roaming around malls instead of contacting bride searcher . " Nakul reply confused everyone but alarmed Arjun .
And then came near Arjun and said in a soft voice " I just met one today "
Arjun silently kicked Nakul under table and slowly whispered in his ears "oh Ho so you are the sarif ghar ka ladka . Don speak too much otherwise your night dress and bikini will come out "
Nakul face reddened as he heard that .
"Sorry Bhai ! " and saying this he silently gobbled down his dinner making Arjun smirk .
"I just can not believe this ! They all think that I ...I know girls more than anyone else in the house . Seriously as if I have been doing PHD in the subject 'Girls'" complained Arjun .
Draupadi laughed at his statement .
"What happened my baby why are u so angry ? " she asked pulling his cheeks .
She was standing with him , bunking the school out in the park near their school as she leaned to his bike supporting her back .
"Among all the works ...I got the most difficult one ! Shopping ! That too for Bhabhi cause my mother believes I know girls more than any of my brother. " Arjun continued his complaining as Draupadi moved her hands in his hair messing them .
"Shopping that's so fun ! "Drau said excitedly . "Don worry baby I will solve the problem , jus give me the list "
Arjun like a good boy obeyed her .
"Okay don worry I will do the shopping! " said Draupadi as she finished looking into the list .
"So what should I do ? " asked Arjun innocently .
"Umm u ...u can carry the shopping bags " Draupadi joked and started laughing while Arjun looked at her narrowing his eyes . "What ? Can't u carry shopping bags ? " she asked smiling . "What is the use of these muscles "she hit in his arms as she said that .
Arjun smiled mischievously and pulled her towards himself . "Really ? I can even carry you " he said in a sexy tone as he tickled her . She laughed out as he came near her and bit her ears and whispered huskily "I think carrying you is more interesting than shopping bags "
She bit her lips as she replied "Of course u can . But I would not risk so first carry my shopping bags then I will think"
"Oh really "he replied laughing as he swept her from her feet . "Now what do have to say miss ?"
"Umm . Good I guess " she wrapped her arms around his neck and she hung to his body .
"So ...are u ready for shopping ?" Arjun looked at her face which was glowing with joy .
"Yup. But I m warning you , this may be a new and unpleasant experience for you "Draupadi 's sentence confused Arjun .
"Why ? " but the reply did not come instead a blink was the only answer.
ArDi's first outing ...get ready for it ;)
