Sameer was thinking of different ways to convince his family, he knew it very well that his Di hadn't believed even a single excuse he had jus gave, but wat might appear to be a decent one, was still unknown to him……..
On the other side, Suhaan was getting impatient as his Bhai has still not sent him the pics, so he called him up. It was midnight there, but Sameer was unable to sleep
"Suhaan?" looking at the screen, "Has he cum to know of nething?" he thot, "How cud he?" he thot again as he took it
"Wat took u so long?" came a quick query
"Is it a time to call Suhaan?" he asked
"Where are the pics?"
"Wat pics?" he, utterly confused
"Very smart" Sameer had totally forgotten abt those, "U had promised me that u'll send her pics, wat's her name?"
"Oh I totally forgot"
"Now u'll be forgetting me also" he nagged
"Wen's ur flight?"
"I'm at the airport itself" he blankly answered
"Oh gud, then u'll see those pics once u are here"
"U are kidding me right?"
"Why wud I see her pics then? U wud take me to meet her" Suhaan was changing for his Bhai
"Huh?" he asked confused
"U hav to"
"Gud, then me cuming fast"
"Hmm" he seemed to be lost in his thots
"Ok fine, u seem sleepy, GN"
"Yup Gn" n he hung up, "How wud he react wen he'll cum to know of the truth, that I'm not marrying her" he thot
On the breakfast table, her Dad listened to her side of the story, wat actually she had said to Sameer, n wat did he say to that, unlike her mother's version wat he had listened to last night,
"I'm proud of u beta" he uttered, surprising Ashi
"Baba" her voice heavy
"U know wen I told u to do that, I had never expected u to do it actually, but u had made it"
"Yipppee" said an excited Rimi, "See Maa, u were scolding her jus like that"
"How many times do I need to tell u, not to talk in all matters?"
"Maa plz, I'm sorry for wat I had done" Ashi said
"Why are u sorry? U had done the right thing" whispered Rimi to her, n she gave bac a look, n Rimi stopped
"Maa, plz I promise I wud never do nething like this ever again"
"Look Ashi, I'm not angry at u, jus that I'm worried for wat will happen next………"
"Don't worry, she has done hers', now I'll do mine" her Baba assured, "I'll talk to Mr.Malhotra, once he returns"
"Then I'm left with nothing to say" her Maa said, giving way to a smile
"Thanx Maa" said Ashi as she went to hug her, "U are the sweetest"
"No Baba is the sweetest" argued Rimi in a playful tone
"Uff, u r too much Rimi" Ashi, rolling her eyes
"No, I'm three four five much" n Rimi gave her typical naughty smile, biting her lip
Suhaan was finding it difficult to sit back more, stucked in that place anymore, seeing him in a restless position, his Dad said
"I wonder how might u hav dun all those work in office?"
"Why? Do u hav any doubt whether I had done it or not?"
"Then why are u so restless? We hav almost reached"
"Ya, but I hav nothing much to do here" he said
"Why don't u go thru the Marios' reports?" suggested he
"Looks like u havn't noticed it here" showing him his lappy by his side
"Wen did u do it?"
"Wen u were sleeping last night?"
"Hmm, I need to go thru the decision of giving u a break"
"I might need u, simple"
"U won't" he said, "Bhai will never let u feel that, he's jus perfect"
"I know, but that does not mean u r getting a long gap" he warned
"U don't need to tell me that" smiling he said
And after sum hours, their flight landed; n it took them about an hour to reach home, n this time he seemed happier, like he had been able to resurface himself,
"Mom, Dids" he shouted on entering
"Suhaan" said Snigs, "Mom look who's here"
"Dids how are u?" he asked hugging her
"I'm fine, tell me how are u?"
"How do I look?" he asked
"Hmm" she looked him up n down, "A bit slimmer"
"How's that possible in two weeks?" he asked
"Suhaan" his Mom called
"Mom" as he rushed out to her n hugged her
"Promise me u won't do anything like that again?" she asked in a teary voice
"He won't" his Dad answered for him, as her mother turned towards him, "Now ur Suhaan will never be do anything wrong" a sense of pride cud easily be made out from his voice, as he looked at Suhaan for a nod
"I promise, if I hav to, I'll inform u"
"No u are not going anywhere"
"Ohk I'll not" he replied, "Tell me where's Bhai?" their faces faded out a bit with the mention of him, as they knew it very well wat Sameer meant wen he said he's not marry her
"Where else, in the office!" Snigs managed
"I don't believe it, he knew I was cuming, n then too?"
"U know na Suhaan, he's been busier after Dad left"
"Ya Dids, but……. ohk no probs, I'll go to meet him right there"
"No he might be busy right now, call him now, can meet him once he's back"
"No way, I'm going now" he said rushing out
"Wat's wrong Snigdha?" her Dad asked
"Dad after u left, Sameer went to meet Aayesha n…….
"I wud give Bhai a surprise today" he thot while entering the office,
"Gud morning Sir" sumone greeted him,
"Morning" he replied, "Hey where's Bhai?" he asked
"Sameer Sir is in a meeting at the moment" he said
"Hmmmm, meeting, no probs, I'll wait" as he entered Sam's cabin, "Lemme call Manish till then" as he did
"Guess where am I?"
"No, I'm not, I'm really back" he assured
"That's the best thing to happen, wen?"
"Today itself, n far more better thing is that Dad has given me a break from work" he said happily
"Wow, such gud news" he replied, "So we can see u back in action now right?"
"I think so too"
"Where are u now?"
"Jus now u said that Uncle has given u a break, n then………"
"No no, I'm here to meet Bhai. Do u know he's getting engaged?"
"No I didn't knew that'
"That's why I came so hurriedly"
"Ohk, so meet up at lunch?"
"Yup done, I'll call on Rahul too"
"That's ok" n later on Suhaan called on Rahul, who was equally delighted to hav him bac, n asked to meet him
"I had never expected this to happen" Mr.Malhotra said
"Ya u know that day he suddenly told that Aayesha is not at all like him" his wife said
"But he never said anything like this before?"
"That is wat I'm thinking, infact he seemed happier after it was fixed"
"Sumthing has surely happened, or he had not said like that" he said
"I know but wat?"
"That only Sameer can tell, I'll talk to him"
"Ok, how was Suhaan when u met him?"
"Ah he was fine, but………."
"Wat we had heard about him was right?" n he nodded her
"I found him sleeping on the office table"
"Oh, but he's looking very joyous n seems like u two had………"
"We had a great time together, probably for the first time he had spoken out his heart to me, it felt as if I was knowing him all over again"
"U don't know I'm so happy hearing all this, but I jus fear how will he react wen he gets to know that Sameer's……." her face saddened a bit at this
"He's changed, will understand wat his Bhai might be going thru, I know"
"Hmm, lets hope for the best, I'm worried for Sameer"
"So I'm, but one thing I'm sure of, there's sumthing serious or Sameer wud not hav said anything like this" she nodded to this
After the meeting got over, wen Sameer entered the cabin,
"Hello" said Suhaan, making a heavy voice, was sitting with the chair turned
"Who's that?" he asked surprised, as he crossed the distance, found Suhaan, "Suhaan?"
"Of course! Who else can do such a thing Mr.Sameer Malhotra" he smiled
"Its so nice to see u back" he said hugging him
"But I'm not happy with u………" said with a mock anger
"Why? Wat hav I done?"
"U know it's the first time, u were not there to receive me at the airport?"
"Ya, I know" he smiled, "But u see I was busy…….."
"Ok fine, u were, but u'll hav to pay for it"
"Ok ready, say wat it is?"
"U wud take me to Bhabhi today" Sameer knew he was trapped
"That's not possible" he declared outright
"Ok fine, then I'll be returning soon n stay there as long as want to. I came back only for u, n now u are not even listening to me"
"Suhaan, that's not possible" he repeated again
"B'coz………." he waited impatiently, "B'coz I'm not……."
"Wat u are not?" his level of curiosity raised
"I mean she's not here"
"She's not here? Then where?"
"I don't know"
"I don't believe this, she mus hav told u"
"Hav u contacted ur frnds that u are here?" he tried to turn the matter
"Ya, I'm seeing them at lunch" glancing at the watch, "Oh shit, it's already 1, I shud run"
"U better do that"
"But u be ready, b'coz wen I cum back I'll not be leaving u" he warned naughtily
"Ok ok u go now" he replied, "I wud hav to tell u all today once u reach home tonight, I can't lie any more" he thot waving at him
Ashi was getting bored at home, as she was strictly instructed by her mother not to take part in the carnival, b'coz of which her classes were suspended for a while.
"Maa" entering the room, though she knew that her mother has forgiven her, there was sumthing that was stopping her to talk freely, "I want to ask u sumthing"
"Hmmm, I'm listening, say it" she replied, without looking at her, busy in arranging sum things
"U had asked me not to take part in the carnival, so I stepped out, but now, as everything is fine, can I………….."
"U mean u want to take part now?" she nodded sadly
"Actually I have been getting bored like this, no college n nothing else to do…….."
"As u wish, but isn't it too late for that?"
"No Maa, I'll manage, I hav talked to Nisha, she'll do it all"
"Oh that means u had done it all, n are here jus for my permission?" she asked sternly
"No I didn't mean that……….."
"Ohk ok go now, but always remember…….."
"No late nights, promise" she completed her, "Luv u Maa"
"Luv u too" she replied smiling
As they met again, it didn't seem as if they had not met for days, their friendship even looked stronger with distance,
"So Mr.Suhaan Malhotra is back after winning the world?" teased Rahul
"Did I ever loose it?" he shrugged
"No he means the way u went; we were really tensed for u" explained Manish
"My god u all are speaking as such I had gone really to do anything to myself" he said, "As u had made it" looking at Manish
"But that did help!" he stated
"hmmm, it did" he agreed
"So tell us how was ur the night life this time?" Rahul asked
"Night life?" asked Suhaan, "Ah it was fun as usual"
"Like going thru reports n deals, no one wud hav ever enjoyed it like this I hav" he said smirking
"My god, this is unbelievable" stated Rahul, "I can't believe that sumone cud change so radically"
"Not everyone, but Suhaan, isn't it?" finished Manish
"Yep, n now I hav gained back Dad's assurance n I feel on top" he declared loudly
"Hey that's gud"
"I know" said Suhaan, soon their lunch came n they had a nice time together, they went to sum places. Rahul had left them as he had sum work to do, so the two of them met few others in time,
"Hey Suhaan we hav been planning for a outing next month" said Ishaan (a frnd), "I'm sure u wud not like to miss it"
"Outing? Where?" asked Manish
"Let's see, we havn't zeroed in on anything, but its gonna be fun for sure"
"U can count on me then" said Suhaan
"Me too, but where?" asked Manish
"Relax yaar, we'll fix up everything once we meet in the pub tonight"
"I won't be there tonight" declared Suhaan
"U won't be there? But why?" asked one
"My Bhai is getting engaged; n I need to be with him dude"
"Ohk fine, we wud discuss it n let u know, u can suggest sumthing too"
"I'll but later" saying he stood up
"Are u leaving now only?" asked Manish
"Ya, its almost evening, Bhai mus be back by now, I hav to talk to him"
"Bye guys" as he excused himself
As he was driving back, he felt tired, not hav been rested since he had landed, n he had not even slept well the last night. Driving down a by-lane, he went slow, closed his eyes for a sec, as they were paining much, n in that lil time, didn't notice, wen sumone had cum in front of his car, n he pushed the brake at once…………
The girl in front let out a scream n his car was hit by another one at the back, as he had stopped it all of a sudden,
"Can't u see properly?" asked the man in the other car, cuming to him
"I can, but I think u can't see that there's sumone in front" he stated cuming out too, n he was seen by that girl
"No, this can't be true" she thot, "I'm going mad, why does he not get the hell out of my mind?" she asked herself, but she was sure, he was in real, she cud hear him talk. As she tried to get up, being a bit hurt with the sudden fall, but she did, as she didn't want to face him
"Oh is he alright?" asked the man
"It's a girl I think. Let's see" as they went to her but…….she had already been walking though limping, "Excuse me" he said n she began walking faster, "Hello" he ran to her, she can sense it, "Are u okay ma'am?" n she froze right there, biting her lip
That was too much for one update
Hope it was gud enuf
