36. GOINGS ON IV
Rajashree chatted away pleasantly over dinner. Shotgun found it hard to believe that it was the same surly woman who had used her cutting tongue on his some hours ago. Now she looked radiant and fresh, as she talked away with his mother, smiling and laughing.
After dinner, she cleared up the table, and put away the food.
Shotgun did not oppose her, as he did not want to instigate her temper. So he just helped her out. No conversation took place, and there was silence except for the chink of the utensils being put away. Rajashree wiped her hands on a towel as she settled down on the cane chair in the terrace. Shotgun came later, with two mugs of steaming cocoa.
"Coffee mili nahi, isiliye cocoa banaya."
She did not reply, merely took small sips. "Accha hain." She finally said.
He beamed at her compliment. He looked at her, pensive. She was looking up at the sky broodingly. Her long hair was held back by a single clip. She was wearing a white kurti with tights. The memories of the last month passed through in his mind.
Harsh words had been common in them, and they flew around the room easily. Cutting remarks, haphazard questions, and ambiguous answers were the current rage. They behaved civilly with each other only during a case. Shotgun knew their nonsense would not be tolerated by Aaryan and Deepka. And try as he might, he could not find the reason for the hurt and parody that had sprung up from the day he had seen her with Pankaj.
Rajashree looked up at the moon broodingly. She blamed herself for the strained relations between herself and Shotgun. Her hurtful remarks were due to her quicksilver tongue and nothing else.
She looked at him, and was taken aback to see that he had been looking at her. He quickly averted his gaze. She looked at his form, washed in moonlight, and a strange ache rose in her. It was a mixture of pain and pleasure, and she felt it surge through her body.
When she had clamed down enough to speak, she said softly, "Subroto…"
He had been looking out to the sea, but when she uttered his name, he looked back at her. She rose, unable to concentrate, suddenly conscious of his eyes watching her every move. She walked to the railing and kept her hands on it.
A strangled sob escaped her, as she said in a loud, firm voice, but at the same time meek and tentative, "I'm….sorry…."
Whatever he had expected, it was not this…He got up, and quickly went to her side, and whisered, "No…maafi toh mujhe maangni chahiye, I have been absolutely hor-"
He broke off, as she encircled him with her arms and rested her head on his shoulder, allowing a tear to escape from her eyes. He stood on the spot, shocked. She extracted herself a moment later. Straightening her hair, she looked up at the moon, and said in the cheery voice, whose dishonest tremor only she could detect, "Maine toh poori Mumbai main flood situation paida kar di. Anyway…sorry?"
His eyes were hidden from the shadows by the moonlight, and she found herself looking at his face. It was safe as long as she could not see those eyes. Those wonderful, piercing eyes she was mad about.
A smile came to his lips as he saw a tear clinging to her eyelashes. He wiped it off, surprise by his own courage.
She gave a smile, before returning to the chair, to retrieve her mug of cocoa….
