Chapter 46 – The Girls Gang! (By Swatideep) (Thanked: 144 times)

Sorry all for the delay! Things Have been so busy at work that I couldn't get time at all... 

But I am back with next chapter and I will make sure to give you updates in max 3 or 4 

days! Working on Next Chapter now.... 

Chapter 46 – The Girls Gang!

“Diya, what are you doing here?” Khushi asked her as soon as she saw Diya walking into AR…

“I came here because Di said you are coming here… I wanted to talk to you urgently…” Diya replied looking pale and lost… Just then they saw La coming over from somewhere angry and bumped into Diya…

“Oops sorry… You are Diya right? We have met in Khushi’s marriage…” La side hugged Diya and then hugged Khushi…

“Yeah we have met… Nice to see you again…” Diya replied politely…

“Khushi I badly need to talk to you… Like right now…” La held Khushi’s hand and started walking towards a conference room…

“Diya, please join us… La, hope it’s nothing super personal…” Khushi pulled Diya as well with her…

“It’s a girl’s thing… Join us Diya… Please…” La could care less at this moment…

“I don’t understand these men… Taking us for granted is the only think they know the best…” La vented out as soon as three ladies got in…

Khushi gestured Diya to be quiet and let La spill out, what she is so mad about…

“You know what I got into the trial ramp area and saw NK allowing models to flirt with him openly… Elina was clinging him so close and it was as if he was enjoying all the attention while taking her pics… I feel like pulling that Elina’s hair and punching NK in his face…” La blurted out angrily… 

“Didn’t I feel exact same thing few minutes back?” Khushi’s heart talked to itself…

“I wish I could I punch Ankit and knock some sense in him too…” Diya also opened up…

“Now what happened between you too?” La asked curious…

“That’s the point… nothing happened… I know I was at fault and I came here to pacify him… And have been doing the same for last three weeks… But he doesn’t budge… He is on his own ego trip and mad at me still… I don’t know what more I can do now? I said sorry like a million times, hugged him, kissed, begged him and now I am also losing my patience…  Already being away from my mom for last three weeks is causing me enough stress… I am not sure I can stay here any longer… She needs me yaar… Why can’t he understand such a simple thing?” Diya poured her heart out…

“Maybe it was never this simple… I thought I will somehow pacify him in a week and get his help to find out a rental house and Dr. at least to get my mom here in a month… And then start looking for a job… It’s not easy for me too yaar… To leave the house and country where I grew up and especially medical system that takes care of my mom irrespective of job… Here I don’t know if she will get the best treatment if I don’t get job quickly enough… Why can’t he see through things? Maybe he really has moved on but just because we both needed a proper closure, we are hanging onto the last strand… I just don’t know any more…” Diya was stuck between her love and her responsibilities…

“Oh god, I must say Ankit is equally idiot as NK… No, NK is more… Never wants to commit and admit it…” La was sarcastic…

“Oh” Khushi herself was lost…

“And your idiot husband is no less Khushi…” La was mad at ASR for entertaining that Sheetal Kapoor, so called his old flame…

“Khushi, it’s all your fault… You allowed him to take you for granted since the beginning of your marriage… See he hugged that witch three times, so much love for ex’ girlfriend and no hugs for his own wife… You always allow him to rule you…” La complained…

“Arnav is angry because he wants Khushi to be with him, ours is the opposite case… Khushi, who goes away from husband after sweet honeymoon trip? Like really?” Diya understood Arnav’s plea…

“Yeah, he completely ignored me… So what if he angry, he shouldn’t have ignored me in front of his whole staff… My mom was sick…” Khushi whispered to herself… She expected him to be angry but still it hurt when he ignored her and acted busy…

“Is that Sheetal his girlfriend? I mean was his girlfriend in the past?” Khushi asked not able to believe…

“Yeah I guess. Who will go and ask ASR and as if he is going answer? But Sheetal always bragged about it in front of everyone including models… Calling herself ASR’s girl… They go way back… They studied together at Harvard where they were friends, dated for some time and then she worked for him for two years five years ago…” La replied instantly…

“Seriously? Are you sure?” Khushi was shocked… Arnav is entertaining his ex’, not that he really did but he ignored me…

“Was it because he just wanted to show his anger on her? Or he just liked to meet Sheetal after so many years?” Khushi was clueless…

“Is she married?” Khushi asked immediately…

“No, but I heard she has a 4+ years old son it seems… Never heard of marriage or divorce” La informed Khushi…

“Wow” That is all she could say…

Then Khushi remembered what happened few minutes back…

Khushi walked in and she saw Arnav was busy in a meeting in his cabin… She had got his favorite breakfast along with his coffee…

After done with his meeting, he got up and saw her down… He felt she was there waiting for him… His secretory called him informing about Khushi but then he had another back to back meeting… Khushi made sure to send his breakfast…

He showed no interest in eating in between or have the coffee but waited for his wife to show up… Khushi stepped into his office… She knew he was busy but decided to take her chance…

“Hi Arnav, good morning” She wished him…

“Hi, how come you are here?” He asked her straight not expecting her in his office…

“Thought to get you breakfast and your favorite coffee before heading back home… Are you still mad at me?” Khushi politely replied…

“I did have my breakfast before starting from home and coffee specially made by HP…” He was sarcastic and ignored her question… Of course he is still mad…

“Yeah, I heard that from Di… Can we have quick breakfast now if you cannot postpone your meeting?” Khushi was aware he screamed at HP and hardly ate any breakfast… Khushi opened the box and held the spoon in front of him…

“Khushi, I am busy right now… But I will eat later…” Arnav knew next meeting is important…

“Oh, never mind… I will see you in the evening… Will get ready to attend the party you talked about yesterday…” Khushi showed some excitement… Khushi wanted to hug him and say goodbye but as she moved closer to him, he picked up a file and immersed himself into it…

“Ok” He just replied while reviewing the file… Khushi turned to go and right then someone opened the door hard and she quickly stepped back…

“Hey Arnie, so good to see you after such a long time…” Someone came running straight into Arnav’s arms… He just held her not to stumble back and fall… He was taken aback and so was Khushi…

“Hi Sheetal, how are you?” Arnav stepped back a little and asked her embarrassed… He looked at Khushi but then she had a poker face…

“Arnie, I moved back to India for good two days ago… Was badly jet lagged… Then first thing I did is to come and see you… Isn’t it great? Oh I missed you much and AR…” Sheetal showed all her excitement to see him…

“Oh, good to see you too…” He replied curtly…

“And look at you… You haven’t aged a bit in last 5 years… You look the same old alpha male, extremely gorgeous… So good to see you Arnie…” Sheetal watch him top to bottom and she was never shy with him…

“Oh Arnie, I have so much to talk to you about and tell you… Let’s catch up maybe at lunch today or in the party by Singhania tonight… Whole town will be there anyways…” Sheetal completely ignored Khushi’s presence in the room and continued hogging him…

“Thanks Sheetal… I have a meeting right now which I cannot skip… Maybe later… And yes, meet my wife Khushi here…” He stepped away from her and towards Khushi…

“Oh hi Khushi, I am Sheetal… Arnav’s old friend… We go long way…” Sheetal calmed down a bit yet smirked looking at Khushi…

“Hello Sheetal…” That’s all she could say… She didn’t like Sheetal at all hovering like that over her husband and totally refusing to acknowledge her presence in the room…

“Arnav, I will see you later in the evening…” Khushi did not know what else to say to him when he was super busy plus angry at her… So she just stepped out but not without hearing what Sheetal said…

“Arnie, I will meet everyone else downstairs while you finish your meeting and then maybe let’s head out for lunch… See you later…” She side hugged him again and walked out behind Khushi… Khushi could see Arnav was already focused on the file and didn’t reply at all…

That’s when she met Diya and La down stairs…

“Khushi where are you lost? I have a solid plan…” La was totally excited and slapped Khushi on her shoulder… Khushi found herself back from her thoughts…

“So what’s the plan?” Diya asked. She was ready to do anything in next two days or head back home…

“We will rock the party tonight… We all are going to Singhania party tonight right? So…” La continued…

“What can we do there? I remember Ankit mentioning about it but he never asked me to join him… How mean?” Diya sulked…

“So what? You can go with me… I and NK have separate invites… Khushi has to come with ASR anyways…” La confirmed entry for Diya…

“But then what can we do?” Khushi asked her…

“Ok, let me explain… We three will hang out together or maybe we come up with plans to make them jealous individually… But the key is we all have to look our best meaning hot and ****y… So the dress code is skimpy…” La spit is out slowly…

“What? No way, you are unbelievable La” Khushi instantly protested…

“Okay maybe let me make this work for us… I will wear short dress knowing NK loves my long legs and hates it when others ogle at them… Diya, maybe a sleeveless deep neck long party dress for you with chunky ear rings and high heels to kill him… And Khushi, you can wear a georgette sari preferably red and new bikini style contrast designer blouse… How does it sound girls? Killer looks and mingle together… What do you think? Say something…” La threw her ideas…

“Deep neck, I can handle that but I would prefer full length dress…” Diya gave in…

“What is bikini blouse? I am not wearing it if it’s too revealing” Khushi asked curious…

“Shut up Khushi… Let’s pick up stuff from our store now… And then let’s grab some lunch…” La took them to the AR store…

“Khushi here you go… Blood red color sari with gold and black border to match with black and gold backless bikini blouse…” La handed them to Khushi along with accessories…

“Diya you are going for this pea**** blue dress… Ankit loves blue on you, right?” La handed her dress, shoes, earrings and a matching clutch…

“And this is for you La…” Diya picked up a gorgeous rust and maroon combo short dress and accessories while Khushi gave her the black trendy shoes…

“We will get ready at 6 in RM and start together with NK and ASR or preferably Di and Jiju…” La finally said happy about their choices…

Then they moved out for lunch and she could see Arnav still busy with his meeting…

Was Sheetal his girlfriend? Will he go out with her for lunch and do some catch up with their old times, Khushi was completely jealous… He doesn’t even have time to look at me and why should I worry about his catchups with ex’, her heart chided her…

Khushi remembered her past visit to his office was also a flop… Maybe coming to his office to meet him is never a good idea… He always ignores me… Laad Governor, I am not stepping in here to meet him ever, she promised herself…

Chapter 47 – The Sheetal Kapoor! (By Swatideep) (Thanked: 148 times)

Guys come on, there won't be any seperation... 


This Khushi is spunk and hiper so she will tackle things even better... 


Enjoy Next Chapter! 



Chapter 47 – The Sheetal Kapoor!

Khushi decided to rush out the door with La and Diya and she bumped into Aman who was stressed out completely…

“What happened Aman?” Khushi asked him casually…

“Mr. Singhania called asking for a favor… He needs Lucknow sweet dishes and asked me for contacts since we served those before in parties at RM and AR… Then Sheetal is asking me to book a table for lunch for her and ASR…” Aman blurted out…

“Aman, I can help you with Lucknow sweets… Call Bakelal Sweets, they are my family friends from Lucknow… My Baoji may not be able to take up such a big order since Amma is sick… But Bakelal sweets are really the expert in authentic Lucknow sweets… Regarding the table booking for lunch, I can’t help there…” Khushi couldn’t hide her anger…

“Khushi I am so sorry… Sheetal is just like that… Such a clingy woman… Why is she even back here? After all that happened, she is so shameless…” Aman blabbered…

“Why? What happened? Do I need to know? Yeah, and why the hell is she hovering all over my Arnav? I already hate her” Khushi whispered but Aman heard her and smiled… Her womanly instinct immediately told her this woman was not good to be around her Arnav…

“Yes Khushi… Right now you can stay calm when I am in action… Knowing her, I planned it anyways to hire a private detective and get a detailed report on her…” Aman assured her… He didn’t want to scare Khushi with the past and how Sheetal left AR Designs…

Khushi was worried as to what must have happened in the past forcing Sheetal to leave? Was Arnav upset when she left him was her immediate next thought…? Suddenly some girl walks in their life from Arnav’s past and brings a storm with her, Khushi didn’t like that thought…

Just then someone pulled her harshly in the nearby conference room… She calmed down knowing it was none other than Arnav…

“So you see me after two days and you don’t feel the need to even hug me?” Arnav was angry at her cold behavior when she came in his office and asked her nailing her to the wall…

“Arnav, you were so busy completely lost in your file that you never bothered to see I was trying to feed you or hug you to say goodbye… And we are in your office… The glass office where everyone can see us…” Khushi was shocked by his demand…

“Yeah right… Everyone can come and hug me, feel so excited to see me… But my wife has to act so shy, cold all the time and talk so formal…” He chided her angrily…

“Come on Arnav, I thought you were busy… And then before I could think of something, that Sheetal barged in… Then she wanted to have lunch with you…” She stepped a little closer…

“Forget her… Why couldn’t you plan on a lunch date or something else to pacify me if you knew I was mad at you?” He didn’t care about others but he wanted his wife’s attention… Is that so difficult for her to understand?

“Oh, I thought… And then La and Diya… And then we went and …” Khushi blabbered realizing it was her fault completely… She was here to meet Arnav but got carried away…

“So sorry Arnav, I mean you were busy and then…” She was trying to think what she can do now to revive the situation…

“You know what Khushi? Go ahead and do all other so called important things in your life… Ok? How does it matter about your husband right?” His temper was raising… He did not want to get angry in office and scold her, but her behavior wasn’t helping… She looked so pretty, seeing her after two days made him feel kiss her senseless and eating her up right there… Only if she could also show the same possessiveness and craving for him…

He was so close to her that he forgot he is still angry… Before she could reply, he took her in a mind blowing kiss… The kiss started slowly, soon became passionate and then punishing her… They parted when they both felt short of breath… He then slowly moved his thumb on her swollen lips…

“Arnav Singh Raizada never begs for attention from any girl to love him… Never forget that ever…” He boasted himself…

“Khushi Kumari Gupta Singh Raizada has never loved anyone else but Arnav Singh Raizada, her husband… And he is not just any man in her life…” Spat came a reply… It was her turn to get angry… He thinks she is any girl in his life, how dare he?

“I missed you too like crazy… You didn’t even pick up the phone last night and…” Without talking further, she also kissed him hard on his lips biting him and punishing him… Arnav was taken aback…

He pecked her again to calm her when her instant reflexes soothed his heart… He fixed her hair and hugged her tight…

“So you think I am any girl in your life?” She asked him pointing finger and looking into his eyes in a no nonsense tone…

“No Khushi… It’s just that I was…” Arnav was apologetic… He knew he has to control his anger and watch his words around her…

“How much ever angry you are, you don’t get away with comparing your wife to any girl… You know what, get lost… Oh yeah, and have fun at your lunch date with Sheetal... I am leaving…” She pushed him hard and walked out the door…

“What just happened?” Arnav was lost and thinking…

“Madam ignored me for two long days, stayed at her parents and I ignored her for 5 minutes and she has guts to walk out on me. Wow, just great. My wild cat…” He stood there craving for his crazy wife…

“Let’s go girls, let’s have some nice lunch together…” Khushi said it in a loud tone making sure Arnav hears her…

“Sheetal why are you even here?” Arnav asked her in no nonsense tone when she barged into his office again now with packed lunch…

He has clearly told her he doesn’t time to go out for lunch… He wanted to avoid her but she was back again annoying him like anything…

“Arnav I just need a job right now… See I have a 4 year old son and need to take care of him… Is it too much to ask from an old friend?” Sheetal answered him calmly… She started her emotional drama and asked him sadly…

“If you want I can keep looking for another job and move out as soon as I get one… But right now I have responsibilities… And really was hopeful that you will give me a job…” Sheetal pleaded again…

“Let me think about it Sheetal… Give me some time…” Arnav really did not want to entertain her when they parted ways on a bitter note last time… And he also doubted if she really deserved to work at AR again… And then if he himself could trust her again…

“Ok, take your time… Let’s have lunch for now… I got your favorite pasta and soup…” She opened the boxes… He had no choice but to have lunch with her…

He had seen Khushi walking out the door with La and Diya… He really needed to talk to his darling wife and set some rules for her anger and mood swings too… She just cannot walk out on him like that… Her crazy behavior keeps him on his toes and always lost in her thoughts…

Not good for business, he smiled to himself…

Arnav walked in at around 6 pm… He had a long day and wished a nice cup of coffee made by Khushi… Then he could take a shower and get ready…

“Khushi, can you get me a cup of coffee please… The Cambodian special please… It works like a charm on my stressful day…” He called out for her… He was happy she is back but still needed to warn her about her antics to run away to her parent’s house… He is still angry…

“Here you go Arnav… You coffee and I fixed you a quick sandwich… We girls are going to be ready in guest room and will meet you downstairs…” Khushi informed him sounding very excited…

Khushi looked like she has just now taken a bath… She takes his breath away with her damp hair look and fresh smell… But he is angry and wouldn’t budge…

“Okay… I will see you downstairs once ready…” He took the coffee and felt rejuvenated…

Can’s she just get ready in front of him while he helps her and troubles her by his naughty gestures? She has to go with her girl gang, his heart whined…

He took a quick shower after snack and was getting ready… Suddenly he saw the packet on the bed and called out for Khushi… He called out her name continuously not sure whether she heard him…

“What now Arnav?” Let me get ready first…” Khushi walked in with sari not yet draped properly and that oh my, so deep and ****y blouse…

“Khushi, what are you wearing tonight? Here are your dresses for today’s party… I wasn’t sure what will you like so I picked up couple of saris as well as western dresses… All have accessories so you can choose anyone of them…” Arnav informed her…

 “Oh Arnav, thank you so much… I wanted to ask you in the morning but you were busy… Then later… Never mind, La helped me out…” Khushi barely could walk in inside and fumbled with her sari coming in her feet… She was about to fall but Arnav held her and she was right into his arms… He felt so good… Her soft skin smelled delicious…

Even Khushi was lost touching his chiseled chest… He was about to wear his shirt lying on the bed and was wearing just trousers… Then both were totally lost hugging each other so close… And to top it all off, just then Khushi’s blouse snapped open…

“Oops Arnav, can you please put the hooks on my blouse?” Khushi felt shy but she had no choice… The blouse was so tight… She hid her face in his chest while he put on the hook…

Arnav held her in his arms and observed her slowly… She was not yet fully ready but she looked so gorgeous, nope scratch that… hot and ****y… Dang, is she going to wear this in the party? Wow, he was already turned on by her closeness and yet angry at her choice…

“Khushi, are you going to wear this sari for the party tonight?” He asked her curious…

“Yes Arnav, isn’t it gorgeous? The designer blouse is exquisite… La and Diya helped me… I will see you soon in like 20 minutes… And thank you so much for these saris and dresses… I will use them some other time” She picked up the bag and put it in her closet and walked out…

“Does she has any idea how hot she is looking? She will kill me tonight… And I will have an extra job at hand to be around her all the time… How am I going to manage those roving eyes and not punch someone?” He didn’t even know how to control his own desires right now…

La and Diya saw the scene from a distance… How Khushi almost fell and Arnav held her… They hi-fied since they purposely sent her like that… The hook was never properly put on, nor her sari… They laughed their hearts out seeing Arnav’s condition…

And La wanted ASR to be prepared mentally to see his wife so hot!

Chapter 48 – The Party! (By Swatideep) (Thanked: 131 times)

Happy Thanks Giving to you all! Gobble! Gobble!


Happy Black Friday! I am going to shop till I drop but promise to give you an update by end of this week.


Here comes the next chapter! Enjoy.... 



Chapter 48 – The Party!

“Khushi is so naïve… ASR is gone for tonight… All set…” La was proud of her plans… Diya just laughed…

La purposely asked the assistant to put Khushi’s long hair in a bun on one side to show off her blouse… She herself wore hair up and same for Diya… The makeup was very light yet top notch and lipstick to stand out…

“My goodness Diya, Ankit is gone today… You look smashing hot…” Khushi teased Diya…

“I really hope that idiot is not moved on and totally floored by me tonight… You both look super-hot too…” Diya was hopeful…

“La, NK is a goner too… You had to have the ****y side slit dress…” Khushi winked…

“Yeah, let him see who looks better… Those anorexic models or gorgeous me…” La looked at herself in the mirror one last time…

Arnav walked down and forgot to breathe looking at Khushi… She looked ethereal just like she looked during marriage and honeymoon…

“You look gorgeous Khushi…” Arnav walked towards her forgetting his anger…

“You look great too…” Khushi complimented him back…

“Jiju I am coming with you, I might drink…” NK came running and stopped looking at La…

“Oh wow, what’s special? You look so hot…” He quickly avoided saying ****y…

“Nothing, just usual…” La shrugged it off…

“Diya my little sis, you too look amazing” Shyam told her…

They all walked out and Arnav and Khushi went in one car knowing he might meet lot of his business colleague and would be late…

“So Arnav, how was your meeting?” Khushi asked him casually.

“It got more and more hectic today, got too crazy… Maybe because of the upcoming shows and two new contracts…” He replied keeping eyes on the road…

“And how was your lunch date with Sheetal?” She couldn’t help but ask…

“What date? I just told you I was so busy… I never had a minute to step out…” Arnav replied immediately remembering how crazy busy he was…

Khushi just nodded and smiled… She felt happy inside…

“But then Sheetal got lunch ordered in office and I couldn’t avoid… Alfredo chicken pasta and broccoli soup” Arnav replied casually…

“Your favorites… She seems to be a close friend to know your food choices…” Khushi commented…

“Yeah, we go long way. She was my classmate at Harvard… Then we kind of dated for a short while… Again she worked for me for few years before she quit 5 years ago…” Arnav told Khushi the details…

“You guys dated? Wow…” Khushi didn’t expect him to tell the truth so blunt and up front… Also she didn’t expect them to be great friends after break up…

“Yeah, we did go on couple of dates during college and quickly realized we were more of friends’ category than anything else and we stayed friends…” Arnav explained…

Khushi had no clue what is friends’ category versus dating criteria…

“But looks like she still likes you and more… So you guys didn’t date each other while you were working together five years ago?” Khushi asked surprised…

“Not really Khushi, we only dated in college eight years ago… And I was super busy and totally boring when I was building my empire 5 years ago… I was absolutely focused on work, nothing else… Sheetal is just like that, always hyper… Maybe she saw me after 5 years and hence excited… Nothing more…” Arnav shrugged it off…

But Khushi found it amusing how Arnav doesn’t see her aggression, her efforts to get his attention, her doting on him etc. Within a day Khushi could see it all…

“Don’t think too much Khushi… She is just a friend and nothing more… I just told you because I don’t want you to hear things from others and misunderstand me… She means nothing… You know how much I love you right?” He pecked her as soon as they reached the destination…

Khushi felt relaxed instantly after his gesture, yet restless inside… Something about Sheetal was nagging and bothered her…

They all walked in together and the place was full of elite Delhi business clan… Arnav walked in with Khushi and introduced her to few of his peers…

“We must say ASR, your wife is an exquisite beauty with talent… You both look absolutely gorgeous together…” He heard often enough that night… He was proudly holding her by now… He was raged at times with ogling eyes of few bachelors at the bar…

Just then Ankit walked in… He walked in towards Anjali Di and Jiju after saying hello to all his friends… He was pleasantly surprised to see Diya looking so gorgeous…

La soon joined them and pulled Diya as well as Khushi with her when Arnav got busy with Mr. Mittal… Khushi was bored anyways with their constant business talks…

“Khushi, stick to the plan… Diya you too…” La warned them…

“Hey Ankit, introduce us to these beauties!” Big time flirt Karan Malhotra and gang walked towards Ankit…

“Hey, this is Diya my friend from London… This is Lavanya, works as Head Designer at AR Designs and this Khushi who recently became Master Chef so I am sure you all know her…” Ankit introduced them one by one…

“Yeah, we know Khushi Kumari Gupta Singh Raizada very well… You cook out of this world… So bad you got married way too early…” Karan joked… Khushi just smiled.

“Miss. Lavanya, you are the head designed at AR… Are you wearing your own creation tonight… You look gorgeous…” Rohan commented…

NK who was standing close by heard the comment and immediately rushed to La…

“Hi La, busy? Or can I steal you for a quick snack?” NK held her possessively…

“Hi, we are just chatting… Maybe later…” Diya rolled her eyes seeing NK still holding La possessively and joined the group…

“Diya, you too look amazing. What brings you to India, friends or family?” Rehan, Ankit’s best buddy started conversing with Diya…

“She always looks gorgeous… She came to meet me” It was Ankit’s turn to show his possessiveness for his girl… Khushi hid her smile…

“I told you it always works…” La whispered to Khushi…

“What works?” Khushi was curious…

“Jealousy…” La smiled…

“Here I am jealous like crazy with my husband standing with his so called “doesn’t mean anything” ex’ girlfriend clinging to him all the time… I don’t know if this will ever work for me. She is driving me nuts… Maybe I should go back to him and tolerate those business talks…” Khushi was raged…

“Wait and watch Khushi… Someone here is an old rival of ASR and will sure catch his attention… ASR needs to learn to keep a distance with that witch…” La knew few old acquaintances in ASR’s life which could work…

“Yeah Karan, Khushi cooks out of this world…” La decided to help Khushi… It’s high time ASR stop putting up with that clingy witch…

“So Mrs. Khushi Kumari Gupta Singh Raizada, it was love marriage for ASR and arrange marriage for you… That’s quite an interesting story I must say…” Karan bugged Khushi…

“Yeah I guess” Khushi casually replied…

“Wow, so your family got his proposal and you said yes… It must be very interesting knowing ASR is so popular and big name…” Everyone was curious…

“But I never knew him much before marriage… His grandmother invited us at Raizada Mansion and we realized it was his proposal after seeing him there…” Khushi blurted out the truth being so naïve…

“So interesting… All the women all over the planet are after ASR. ASR is the name to recon with so much talent, looks, acute business sense and the list goes on… And you are talking as if you married because your parents said so…”Rehan asked her…

“Believe it or not, I did” Khushi was brutally honest…

Arnav could see Karan was keenly talking Khushi while everyone else was listening and they were enjoying and he was instantly jealous… Karan was his rival from college when they both were popular back then and one of the girl he was dating left him and started dating Karan… Eventually even Karan and that girl broke up in two weeks too but the rivalry stayed…

“Hi there, seems to be some interesting conversation going on…” Arnav joined them all… He possessively held Khushi and snaked his hand around her waist…

“Yeah ASR, we were talking about your love marriage and her arranged marriage…” Karan enlightened him… Karan is happy go lucky guy who never realized ASR was still holding onto the old silly college day’s rivalry…

“What’s about their marriage?” Sheetal joined asking curiously… How can she stay back after Arnav left her to join his wife…?

“Nothing, it was love at first sight for ASR while Khushi here did not know ASR much before marriage…” Karan just mentioned…

“What’s so funny about it? It’s not as if we all know the whole world…” Khushi defended herself…

“But all the girls know ASR… The great Arnav Singh Raizada… The alpha male with so much talent, youngest and hottest business tycoon…” Sheetal immediately boasted about Arnav…

“Chill guys, how does it matter? Great news is they are happily married…” Ankit intervened looking at Khushi’s lost face…

“Yeah, and we love each other now…” Arnav said looking at Khushi and she nodded smiling…

“But I mean it’s amazing… What a love story? Prince charming of this world finds his love in a simple girl who doesn’t know anything about him…” Rehan liked their story…

“It’s normal in arranged marriages, no big deal” Khushi again defended.

“No big deal, you mean to say you would have married anyone your parents got for you…” Karan asked curious…

“Obviously, my parents would choose the best for me, so yes…” Khushi replied… She has no clue where this conversation is going…

“You mean to if your parents have said no, you would have said no to ASR? No to the great ASR?” Spat came the next question by Sheetal… It was a very obvious question to expect and even Arnav was curious to know her answer…

“You are not realizing simple thing here… I didn’t know Arnav back then at all but I knew only my parents so if they would have said no, it’s a NO from me too… If they said no, I would never meet Arnav to know him well…” Khushi made it simple…

Shock was an understatement for Arnav and everyone else… Sheetal smirked right there…

“So much for falling in love with a unique girl, ASR... She would have rejected you if her parents did… So you have to be really thankful to her parents I guess… For whatever reason, they chose you…” Sheetal laughed sarcastically…

Just then someone tapped on Arnav’s shoulder and pulled him to talk with his business colleagues…

Arnav had to leave the conversation but it sure left a bitter feeling in his heart…

“Arnav wait…” Khushi tried to stop him but he was gone without looking back even once…

“Whatever it may sound to you guys, but I will follow the same path of arranged marriage without a flinch knowing it will make my parents and his Naniji so happy… And then Devi Mayya wrote Arnav, a real man in my destiny who honors, loves, respects and cares for me… When the first time I met him, I never knew he would be this important to me… Today he is the love of my life, means world to me… You all look at him as the ASR, business tycoon, hot and what not… But my Arnav is even better, I can’t share anything about him though, because I am so possessive… All I can say is the world is not always perfect, we are still discovering each other out but our time together always seems perfect… I love him like crazy and he too is equally crazy for me. That’s all that matters… Our love is way above our personal status or  tall achievements he has…” Khushi replied cheekily and they all smiled looking at the glow on her face…

“Really amazing Khushi, You both deserve each other and suit each other… ASR’s handsome and arrogant attitude versus your simplicity and innocent natural beauty…” Ankit said in one go without hesitation… He has always liked Khushi from the day one he met her and he was glad to help out Jiju and Di to bring ASR and her together…

By then Arnav was at the bar with his colleague but somehow Khushi’s reply lingered in his mind…

Sheetal did hear Khushi expressing her immense love for Arnav after he left… But then she also knew Arnav didn’t hear it… Then how can she not use this opportunity, after all she is here with a mission!

“ASR, I must say you have a very interesting love story… Is it still one sided? Gosh, the great ASR falls in love with a girl who… Let’s just not say anything further…” Sheetal laughed and mocked him without any hesitation… It was like putting salt on his big ego…

He just remembered how Khushi left him alone and stayed at her parents for two days as soon as they returned from their honeymoon… Her Amma was okay but then she had to stay… He is so passionate and possessive about her but she is always shy so he doesn’t know the depth of her love yet…

He knows she loves him but then she would have married anyone, anyone else than him? The thought really hurt him a lot… Even though that’s how arranged marriages work, he felt she would have had a better answer for them…

He took another drink… Then another one… Sat at the bar lost and Sheetal giving him company and clinging to him as usual… Khushi didn’t know what to do and was getting all worked up… La felt bad for her and didn’t know how to rectify the situation any more…

Chapter 49 – Possessive ASR! (By Swatideep) (Thanked: 136 times)

Aha, so Chapter 47 did create lots of curiousity again in the story! 


So many intersting comments, thank you so much... I am not giving any previews to keep you all


intrigued... Just enjoy reading! 



Chapter 49 – Possessive ASR!

La still did some quick thinking, whispered things to Khushi and sent her to fetch ASR…

“Arnav, let’s go…” Khushi said with a poker face not wanting to show any feelings right there…

“Khushi, why did you say…?” Arnav was about to say something when Khushi closed the distance between them…

“Ssssh Arnav, not now… Can we talk later? Let’s eat something and then I want to dance with you…” Khushi put her finger on his lips to stop him from talking, pulled him closer and took him with her… She didn’t want to discuss anything in front of Sheetal…

Khushi brought a plate with food for both of them… She looked at Arnav and seeing he is still lost, fed him the first bite… He showed no interest in eating himself and she ended up feeding him in the middle of lots of teasing… It was a view for people to see inside of ASR’s love life and cameras clicking… Khushi could see Sheetal fuming and decided to enjoy with Arnav keeping Sheetal at bay… It was their night as a couple together, everyone else didn’t matter and she would keep it that way…

“Really? Does it happen in arrange marriages? I mean dance…” Arnav was still sarcastic… Khushi was shocked and did not know why he was agitated with her…

She made him finish desert and walked with him hand in hand… Everyone was on the dance floor by then… Ankit and Diya, La and NK too were dancing… Arnav and Khushi joined the slow couple dance…

When they turned and changed partners, Khushi moved on to dance with Karan and Arnav got someone else as his partner… He didn’t even care to look at his partner…

“Would she have married to Karan also? Of course she would have if her parents selected him” His mind confirmed and he hated to see his Khushi in Karan’s arms… Then he remembered Khushi talking to some tall and handsome guy in the food area… The guy looked like a model and side hugged Khushi… She reciprocated very well and chatted as if old friends…

Suddenly he felt like whole world is against his love and Khushi could have married anyone… The thought itself made him feel so angry…

Next partner change and Arnav grabbed Khushi back to himself… Khushi didn’t know what happened but was happy to see Arnav…

“Do you like to dance Khushi?” Arnav asked her huskily…

“Yes of course, it is so much fun… I am thoroughly enjoying dancing with you… I know you like slow dance too…” Khushi expressed and he smiled back…

“All eyes are on you tonight Khushi… You look so hot and dance so elegantly…” He moved even closer… He himself moved so suave, acted all possessive and danced so intimately… Slowly all other couples moved out giving them space…

“Thanks Arnav… But you are saying this? You are the “most wanted” guy everywhere you step in… What do they call you? Oh yeah, alpha male, hottest tycoon, most desirable” Khushi smiled in appreciation but mostly in jealousy over Sheetal’s comment…

“Oh, so my wife doesn’t think I am all that?” Arnav asked her curiously slowing down their dance steps along with the music but not understanding what she is angry about it…

“Of course, I know who you are and what you do… You are my husband Arnav and I know you well… And I don’t need to hear about you from her for sure…” Khushi’s tone screamed jealousy when she admitted that and Arnav was sure surprised… They needed to talk…

All clapped for them once the song was over… La smiled and gave Khushi a thumbs up… Sheetal had no chance to get any closer to Arnav and she just couldn’t help but fume… Arnav looked totally possessed by his wife…

“ASR, one dance with me please?” Sheetal barged in still trying her luck… By then someone else also tapped on Khushi’s shoulder… But Arnav was in no mood to let go Khushi even for a second…

“Excuse me Sheetal, but we only dance with each other…” Arnav lied through his teeth… Khushi whispered smiling, asking him what he is even talking about…

“Just five minutes back...” Sheetal tried to say something… Everyone had seen them changing partners few minutes ago…

“Just from now on, that’s the new rule for us as a couple… Why don’t you guys dance together?” With that Arnav completely ignored Sheetal, pulled Khushi to him, moved to another corner and started dancing with her again… They were lost in their own world…

Ankit was also completely floored by Diya and did not want to leave her alone and so was NK with La…

It was already way past mid night by then and they all decided to head back… This was girls’ last chance to make Ankit realize Diya’s plea… So La took the step…

“Hey Khushi, why don’t we continue at home with girl’s pajama party tonight now that Diya is going back soon?” La dropped the bomb…

“What the hell? When and why are you going back?” Ankit pulled Diya and asked her angrily in no nonsense tone…

“Ma was asking me when I will be back… It’s already three weeks and things didn’t work out as I had expected… So I have to go back…” Diya replied with a pale face…

Before Ankit could talk further, La pulled Diya in the car… NK also wanted to spend time with La but she ignored him completely… Khushi said yes to girl’s night out as she was also angry at Arnav for sitting at the bar with that Sheetal…

Arnav was already raged with Khushi and needed to talk to her… He did some quick thinking while driving back home…

“La, have you and NK broken up?” He asked her with a serious face as soon as they entered the house…

“What? No way, what made you think so?” La asked restless…

“I saw NK going towards the guest house… He usually goes there when he has special dates or if he is too upset… But then you are here… So?” ASR was back in action…

“Oh is it? I am going to see him now…” La made an excuse and left towards guest room…

“La is coming to you… Take charge you idiot…” Arnav messaged NK… One down, one more to go… Phew, he thought…

“Ankit, you call me idiot… But you are the biggest one… Diya is booking a return flight for tomorrow… You have only tonight… Come from back side to RM and meet her on the terrace…” Ankit got the message from ASR and started driving towards RM…

“Diya, Ankit wanted to see you at the terrace… This way to go… Maybe it’s worth meeting him one last time before you go back” Arnav suggested her and she walked towards the terrace…

Di and Jiju wished good night and left… Arnav and Khushi also left to their room…

“So Mrs. Khushi Kumari Gupta Singh Raizada, you will marry anyone right? What the hell you were saying to that Karan Malhotra?” Arnav nailed her to the wall and asked her angrily…

“You are drunk Arnav and who the hell is this Karan Malhotra?” She asked equally agitated…

“I am sure not drunk Khushi… Couple of pegs, I can easily handle… Karan is the guy who was asking you about yours so called arranged marriage…” Arnav was still angry…

“Oh, him… I just told the truth… And why are you so angry?” Khushi questioned him… She should be the one angry… As if ignoring her in his office was not enough, he entertained that clingy witch whole evening…

“Why am I angry? You have been ignoring me since we came back from our honeymoon… And you come back and talk as if…” Arnav complained…

“As if you didn’t ignore me right? My Amma was sick and I had to go… But what is your excuse to entertain your dear ex’ in front of your wife?” She was equally raged…

“I didn’t… She just happen to come back and see me today at work…” He had a small smile realizing Khushi is totally jealous and mad…

“Oh yeah, she was clinging to you… She arranged lunch date and whole evening she was glued to you like a pest… You did allow that… So much for “She means nothing” ex, I know that…” She was sarcastic…

“By any chance are you jealous of Sheetal?” Arnav asked her curious and smirked…

“Why would I be? I am your wife Arnav… Of course I am fine with you having friends, it’s just that I always have to answer you…” She smirked back… She knew how to get him too… She was jealous as hell, but dare she would admit it, that too on his face and give him the pleasure to tease her…

“Oh I see… So you don’t want to answer me now? The hot Khushi Kumari Gupta Singh Raizada doesn’t… Oh wait, what’s with the hot look? Let me guess it, you wanted all my attention only on you tonight so the extra effort, right?” Arnav was reading her thoroughly and he was right on dot…

“Not really, it’s just that La and Diya put it together for me and I went ahead with the look… Are you complaining because I looked gorgeous and invaded your thoughts or kept you hooked to me…? I thought we were going out as a couple so I should dress well and make you happy but looks like you are mad about it… Or are you upset that I looked hotter than your clingy ex’?” She smirked back…

“Forget her or others Khushi… I don’t give a damn… I am too busy a man to waste even my few seconds on some clingy people around me… I am a very popular person and people try to be around me for their own benefits, but I don’t need to give attention to others or look at anyone else the way I look at you… And my eyes are always set only on you… Is it so difficult for you to understand such a simple thing?” Arnav was sarcastic…

“Come on Khushi, you girls were on a mission I could clearly see… I am neither blind nor a fool like those two… Answer me one thing honestly, bumping into me and whatever happened after it also was part of it?” He looked sharp into her eyes and it was unnerving her… She stepped back and he kept coming forward as usual…

“What are you even talking about Arnav?” Khushi replied flabbergasted clarifying his doubt that it was La and Diya’s trick… His Khushi is still so naïve…

“So you think you could have married anyone?” He was back to the same question again… It still pricked his heart and he wanted an answer…

“Stop it please Arnav, we didn’t even know it was your proposal until we were at RM… So if my parents didn’t come here for some reason, we would have never met… And you are talking as if you really were in love with me and wanted to marry me desperately? You tried so hard not to let the marriage happen… And after…” Khushi countered him back but didn’t want to dig old graves…

“Oh, so then you could have married someone else happily right?” He asked again… His mind was stuck.

She kept moving back, hit the bed and fell back… Her sari pallu was on her face showing off her mid reef, her beautiful flat tummy…

He pressed himself on her and forced her to look into his eyes…  They were so close to each other that their illogical banter was long forgotten…

He kissed her like crazy… Rather harsh and punishing her again for staying away from him for last two days… It was his way of showing her how much he missed her…

“So you think anyone can kiss you like this and you will allow?” He asked her with equal rage is his eyes…

“Why are you still stuck to the arranged marriage discussions? It was just a casual conversation. What matters is we are together now and love each other…” Khushi tried to calm him down… She wasn’t sure what really bothered him so much… She didn’t realize Arnav never heard her professing the love for him in front of everyone…

“Oh really?” He kissed her hard again and there was no stopping… He was crazy possessive of her… He kissed her so passionately, almost bit her on her shoulder and gave her a hickey… He then kissed her softly to soothe her once she winced in pain…

“You will allow someone else to do this to you? To kiss you, to love you… You are only mine, Khushi… You better get it into your head…” His drinks and Sheetal’s mocking words pushed him to ask her again though he did not want to hear her response… What if it breaks his heart…?

“How dare you Arnav? How can you even think like that? Never Arnav… Never… It’s always gonna be you, only you… And just us…” She kissed him back softly…

“Are you sure Khushi? It’s always going to be just me? Just us?” He asked her again with pleading eyes…

“Of course Arnav, there is no doubt… I love you like crazy and only you… You know that right? And yes, I was jealous and mad today when that witch Sheetal was clinging to you… You are all mine too just like I am all yours…” She didn’t know what has come over him but she knew he needed her assuring words… She pulled him close and kissed him all over his face… But then he was aggressive and she let him take over… He showed his possessive side making love to her the whole night…

Not that she complained, she missed him too… He dozed off long ago… But his behavior shocked her… Arnav’s insecurity came as a big surprise to her… The great Arnav Singh Raizada who can rule the business world is so unsure when it came to love was a hard thing to digest…

Still she wasn’t sure what triggered him to feel so insecure about her and act so stubborn… He almost scared her… Was it anything she did or said some external factors? Maybe she never needed to say everything about their arranged or love marriage, instead just about how they fell in love… As is, they are public figure or definitely he is, so she will be careful going forward about what she says in public! Especially if her Arnav is so sensitive….

And that also reminded her of mocking smile on Sheetal’s face when she had fetched Arnav for dinner…

She knew she really needed to solve this mystery for them… For now, looking at him sleeping peacefully and satiated made her smile and she dozed off in no time…

Chapter 50 – Sheetal at RM! (By Swatideep) (Thanked: 132 times)

Hello All, 

I realize even Sheetal story might add to same jealousy track which we already saw in this story! 

So I do not want to prolong this beautiful story! So you see few more chapters to end this story!

But Hang in There! I sure have another fun story in mind! 

Someone suggested me here - What if Arnav and Khushi knew each other from childhood! 

Enjoy Next Chapter! No more hints on this story or Upcoming one!

Chapter 50 – Sheetal at RM!

“Good morning Arnav” Khushi came with his coffee… It was Saturday so she didn’t wake him up early…

“Good morning sweetheart…” He pecked her…

“You dirty… Go and brush your teeth…” She pushed him in the bathroom to freshen up… She was slowly sipping tea… It was breakfast time but all were late so she decided to have tea in her room with Arnav…

“Khushi you should write a book on “How to spoil romantic moments… by Khushi Kumari Gupta” How does it sound?” Arnav teased her…

“Singh Raizada… Wow my first ever book! How nice?” She replied dreamily…

“Thanks for the coffee… I do have bad headache…” Arnav was holding his head…

“Yeah after drinking so much, you should have a headache… Who asked you to drink if you can’t digest?” She showed no sympathy…

“But your coffee always does the trick Khushi… I so needed it…” He sat next to her kissing her cheek... She could see he was in much better mood today… She wanted to talk to him but just then they heard noises down stairs…

“It’s time for breakfast I guess…” They both went downstairs for breakfast…

“My goodness Khushi, you cook delicious… I badly need to learn from you especially since Ankit is such a huge fan of your cooking…” Diya commented as soon as she put the first paratha bite in her mouth… Ankit gave her “I told you so” look…

“Don’t bother Diya, it’s not going to work… You will always get “Still Khushi is the best cook” answer just like NK says… I totally envy her…” NK always told La when she asked him how she cooked any dish… She is used to it knowing how extra ordinary cook Khushi is…

There was a lavish breakfast on the dining table… Variety of sandwiches, variety of parathas and Shyam’s favorite Bengali sweets…

“Khushi my dear, you can ignore Arnav while your bro is here… I just love your cooking…” Shyam also praised her openly… He always considered Khushi just as Diya, Khushi was even younger in age…

“Jijaji, don’t spoil my wife… And plus there is no guaranty she will cook when she gets angry…” He smirked at Khushi…

“Don’t worry, the anger is exclusively for you… Today you are just lucky because everyone is here” She teased him back…

“Or is it because of the last night?” He whispered when she served him… She blushed so hard…

“Di, tell me how is the Bengali sweets? I ordered special Lucknow sweets today for Nani. My friend would be here any minute…” Khushi looked at Naniji who looked so pale and tired... Khushi felt guilty…

Just then the doorbell rang and HP opened the door…

“Hi Arnie, we are here as we discussed yesterday…” The whole family saw Sheetal and her son standing in the living room with luggage bags…

“What? Why are you here?” Arnav asked confused as to why Sheetal would be here with her bags as if she came to stay in RM…

“Arnie we discussed it last night… When I shared my problem that I have to vacate the hotel room today, you offered me to come over to RM… So here I am. Thank you so much… Aarav was bored of staying in the small room… I owe you big time…” Sheetal as usual came forward and hugged Arnav…

Arnav didn’t know what to say… He didn’t remember calling her to stay at RM but he did recall her talking to him about vacating the hotel room and Aarav… The family was shocked… Nani and Anjali had heard about Sheetal in the past but never thought she would land in their house like this…

La and Anjali looked at each other and gave a disgusted look to both Sheetal and Arnav…

“Sheetal, where is your husband? When is he arriving? How long you will stay here?” Naniji never liked Sheetal and asked her without even inviting her…

“Woh Naniji, I am not married… But I am looking for an apartment and will shift as soon as I get one… Also I have asked Arnav for a job at AR so will start working with him soon…” Sheetal replied sheepishly…

“You are not married but you have a kid?” Naniji could not help but show her disgust openly…

“Chote, you better know what you are doing… Khushi, what do you say?” Naniji did not like that Arnav didn’t discuss the matter with Khushi… Arnav looked down and then looked at Khushi remembering how she did not like Sheetal and now she has landed in their house…

“Naniji, if Arnav has invited her, it is okay I guess… We came back late last night and Arnav got up late so I am sure he wanted to inform me…” Khushi covered up and Arnav was surprised… She hated to see Sheetal in her house yet she did not want to disrespect her husband in front of whole family…

“HP, get the outhouse cleaned… Sheetal can stay there…” Khushi ordered OP to clean up the outhouse. 

“Ok Khushi Didi, it will take me few hours… Maybe by 4 pm it will be ready…” HP called his brother OP to start cleaning…

“Sheetal, our outhouse has separate entrance, parking and proper kitchen for you to cook plus will give you privacy… We already have family here visiting us and we will need our privacy too. Hope you understand. You must have had your breakfast but let me know if you both want to eat anything…” Khushi smiled at Sheetal knowing outhouse is like half a mile away from RM with separate entry…

“No, no we ate and came… We are ok to stay in outhouse but we will definitely come to see you ASR… Aarav here is big fan of yours…” Sheetal was completely embarrassed yet made sure to gain back entry into Raizada Mansion…

Khushi sat next to Arnav to finish her breakfast… But she never bothered to look at him even once… Arnav realized it hasn’t gone well with Khushi… Their last night banter was still fresh in his mind…

Khushi went to kitchen to get extra coffee and immediately called Aman to see if any employee quarter is available at any cost… She gave Aman half an hour to find out urgently and text her back… She turned to see Sheetal standing behind her…

“Do you need anything?” Khushi asked her…

“It doesn’t look like you are happy to entertain your husband’s bestie…” Sheetal commented.

“Maybe so true… Because he didn’t say you are his bestie… Usually I take time to know and like people. I am too busy taking care of family… And you know how demanding and possessive Arnav can be… We recently got married second time because Arnav wanted to enjoy the rituals whole heartedly again so still in honeymoon phase you see and not ready for any other forced responsibilities I guess…” Khushi took the hint from Sheetal that she might have heard her conversation with Aman but she could care less… This woman has guts to ignore her in front of her husband and cling to her husband purposely, then she has right to show her true feelings…

“Aarav here needs milk… And yes, I am here for some unfinished business and some rights for my son…” Sheetal dropped the bomb indicating she is here for Aarav and tried to put the worm of distrust in Khushi’s mind…

Khushi was shocked and disgusted with Sheetal by now… The lady is so shameless not ready to get out in spite of telling her on her face and then hinting as if Aarav belong here… Do I look that stupid or naïve or is she just overconfident about her game plan? Khushi could immediately guess Sheetal is here with a strong motive…

“Oh my god, feel so sorry for you Sheetal… So let me guess you don’t know the father of your son? Arnav told me about you going around with many… Never mind, that’s your personal life… Arnav and I are very clear about our responsibilities and glad to have saved ourselves for our love, for each other… But don’t worry Arnav and I will help you out… But are you sure he is your kid?” Khushi was her spontaneous best… Sheetal gasped at Khushi’s audacity and smirk…

“How dare you?” Sheetal was really mad seeing Khushi is way smarter than she thought… So her assumption of Khushi being so naïve and will get manipulated easily was out the window…

“Excuse me? Did you say something Sheetal?” Khushi asked her as if she did not hear her…

“Nothing, get me milk for Jr. A” Sheetal pushed back leading to open war…

“Lady, have some manners… Request politely, this is not your house…” Khushi gave her the cup of milk and walked out of the kitchen… Sheetal couldn’t handle hot cup and dumped on the countertop…

La and Anjali were happy with how Khushi handled the whole situation for now… But they both glared at Arnav… Shyam also raised his eye brow at Arnav as to what is happening? NK and Ankit just nodded their heads clearly telling him what a fool he is… Arnav was totally guilty at his own stupid behavior…

But why can’t I remember inviting Sheetal at home to stay, I would never do that in my right mind… He kept on thinking… He knew Khushi will not like it all, no wife will like it… Calling his ex’ to stay in his house, like really? What was he even thinking? Arnav knew it’s so not him…

Just then again the bell rang and this time Khushi opened the door… She walked in with the same tall and handsome guy he saw her with last night in the food area… He side hugged Khushi and handed her few boxes… Arnav thought he was some model but then what is he doing here?

He walked over to Naniji and touched her feet asking her blessings…

“Hope you feel better soon… And I can get more Lucknow special sweets for the gorgeous lady… Khushi is so right… You are more beautiful than her…” Bakelal joked with Nani…

“Good to see you again Beta… Are you really praising me or practicing for Natasha?” Nani teased him…

“What? No Naniji… Khushi ki Bacchi, you are such a broad cast system… Can’t hide anything!” He was embarrassed and showed his hand in a hitting position to Khushi… Arnav could see red all over the place… Nani also knows him so well, Arnav was surprised…

“Hey BK, so you are back at last haan… Nice to see you again and I don’t mind trying the sweets…” La jumped and grab the box pleading Nani and tried the sweet…

“Wow, delicious…” She moaned and NK was clueless what’s going on…

“Diya, you can try too… You don’t get this in London, opening a shop there is in my plans for sure…” BK held the box in front of Diya and slowly in front of everyone…

“I can’t decide who makes better sweets you or Khushi?” Anjali was not sure…

“Di, it has to be BK, the great…” Khushi accepted her clean defeat raising her hands…

“BK, but my modeling offer is still open for you. You sure fit the bill…” La had offered him a modeling job when she met him yesterday… There was no doubt he was super good looking with that 6.2” height…

“Thanks La, I will keep that in mind… It won’t hurt to earn some quick money while establishing my business…” He thanked La…

“I will get going, I have a meeting today Khushi… And this is for you, First one is from Boston when I was in Harvard and the other one I picked up from London on my way back… It’s a surprise gift for you… You will love them… See you soon” And he left… Khushi walked him to the door…

Khushi closed the door and heard her phone buzz… It was a text from Aman saying there was an apartment available… She couldn’t believe her luck… Now she will teach this Sheetal a lesson…

“Are you sure Aman? Can you please reconfirm?” Khushi called Aman…

“Yes Khushi, I am going to collect the keys from watchman, will come personally and hand over to you…” Aman lived in a bigger apartment in the same complex… So it was easy for him to help out…

“I owe you big time Aman… Come over for lunch…” Khushi was more than happy to get rid of Sheetal…

She went back in the kitchen cleaning up all the stuff… By then all of them had finished eating…

“Khushi Bitiya, I wanted to try the sweet but you took it to kitchen I think…” Nani wanted to eat Lucknow sweet… She had been feeling weakness since couple of weeks…

“Naniji, I know… I purposely kept the box in the kitchen… You and I are walking together to kitchen to get the sweet… No excuses Nani, trust me you will be fine… I am here to take care of you and yoga starts from tomorrow…” Khushi held Nani’s hand and they both walked together to the kitchen…

“Khushi, you don’t want to waste your time on me… I am getting old and tired these days…” Naniji was losing her interest these days and would feel low due to weakness…

“See you are acting like a depressed person Nani and it’s so not you… It’s all NK’s fault… We haven’t watched a single Salman Khan movie in last few days… You are missing out on your favorite star’s attention… Nothing else…” Khushi teased Nani…

“I called massage lady for your everyday massage in the evening… And you must take medicines and protein shake” By then Khushi and Nani reached kitchen… Khushi made her sit and fed her the sweet…

Everyone saw how much Khushi loved Nani…

“Only Khushi can make her do things… Even I give up at times but Khushi never forgets Nani’s routine and medicines…” Anjali wiped her tears… She was happy that Khushi is always here with Nani…

Khushi was least interested in coming back to living room knowing Sheetal is there… Let him handle his friend, she was angry… She gave HP menu for lunch asking him to do pre-prep and she left to her room…

She sat next to the pool and opened gifts by BK… First one was famous book on Chicago and Boston style pizza recipes… It was surprisingly a beautiful metal book with cute pictures embossed… Second one was fruits picks in a metal sculpture in the shape of London Bridge… She always liked London Bridge since childhood…

“BK, loved both gifts… Thank you so much” She called him immediately…

“You are always welcome Khushi… Do you want to talk?” BK has seen Khushi’s crest fallen face at the dining table and a low, lost voice now… He always used to be there when she needed a shoulder…

“How do you know? But it’s ok… I will handle it…” Khushi replied…

“That’s like a good girl… Khushi, you will be fine… Bye for now, I am getting into the meeting. But I am always here for you… If you need me…” BK assured her…

Khushi sat there next to the pool side feeling relaxed and a bit better…

Chapter 51 – Aman Saves the Day! (By Swatideep) (Thanked: 118 times)

Guys here comes the Next Chapter! I am trying to give you regular updates 


Enjoy! 



Chapter 51 – Aman Saves the Day!

“Saale Saheb, what is all this? What are you trying to achieve by calling Sheetal to stay here? Don’t upset Khushi by any of your actions… She is my sister too and you will be answerable to me… Wife and family are any day more important than some old fling…” Shyam didn’t hesitate to warn Arnav directly without beating around the bush…

“Chote, how can you be so stupid?” Anjali was not behind either…

“Stop it Di and Jiju… Trust me, I really didn’t invite Sheetal here… Why would I ever? You know how hard I try to stay away from her? I didn’t promise her a job either… I really love Khushi and I would never do anything to jeopardize our relation…” Arnav explained…

“Oh really? But you never opened your mouth when Sheetal said you invited her… Very smart Arnav, great going” NK was also angry…

“Looks like you wanted her to stay here so you couldn’t open your mouth… Why don’t you go and explain that to your wife? She will easily understand after your behavior at the party yesterday… Entertaining that clingy ****…” Even La were equally sarcastic…

“What the? Shut up NK ad La…” Arnav angrily walked upstairs looking for Khushi…

Arnav found Khushi sitting next to the pool with gift wraps around her…

“Lovely gifts Khushi? Is that your neighbor Bakelal?” He asked her…

“Oh my god Arnav, I didn’t introduce you both to each other… How can I even forget? I was so busy and lost I guess… Yes, he is Bakelal, my childhood friend and neighbor… He is finally back after completing his education in USA… He also got his business degree from Harvard recently…” Khushi told him…

“I see, nice… Introduce us next time…” Arnav saw her mood was elated after talking about her friend…

“Why are you so lost?” Arnav wanted to start conversation about Sheetal fiasco but did not know how…

“Nothing, I am just fine… In fact better after opening these wonderful gifts…” Arnav hated it that he made her upset but her friend made her feel better… Khushi made sure not to start Sheetal topic… 

“Khushi, I just wanted to talk to you regarding Sheetal and her kid…” He made her look at him…

“I am listening” Khushi looked into his eyes…

“Khushi I never invited her to come and stay with us. I mean why would I do that? And I haven’t even offered her a job either… Sure she complained about her problems to stay in hotel but still I never…” He was watching her reaction and hopeful she wouldn’t burst out at him…

But he saw Khushi was totally calm… Is it a good or a bad sign, he was worried…

“Arnav, since you didn’t clarify this in front of her and everyone back there, we all felt you indeed invited her and I did not want to disrespect your decision… You kept quiet out there so I felt she is still very important to you and so we will adjust somehow… And it’s a matter of few days hopefully…” Khushi hid her feelings for now and replied in a serious tone… She just wished she could blast her dumb husband… But throwing Sheetal out was her highest priority…

“But Khushi, I really didn’t. And she is not important to me at all… She isn’t even a close friend…” Arnav pleaded her to listen…

“Isn’t it too late to discuss this? She is already here with her luggage and we had no choice but to offer her to stay… OP is cleaning the outhouse as we speak… What do you want to do now? You tell me…” Khushi was not sure what he expects from her now…

Khushi was amazed instead of talking to her, he should talk to Sheetal and send her to some hotel or make arrangements in employee quarter… What does he really want? Is he confused, she didn’t know…

Does he still have a soft corner for Sheetal and wanted to help out knowing she is a single mom? Does he still like her or just likes working with her? Maybe they both are those typical Harvard geeks who work endless hours… She was not sure what to conclude… All she knew was how much ever she dislikes the thought and feels insecure or irritated that the other woman who was in her husband’s life before her is going to stay in her own house and she cannot do absolutely anything about it… She felt insane realizing he might have done some of the things he did to her last night… He was so crazily possessive about her but was he the same before with anyone else or that Sheetal? The thought itself made her shiver… Does he even realize what he is making her go through by having Sheetal in their house?

Khushi waited for his response… Even he was lost thinking about it…

“I will talk to her in office… Will ask her to figure out her staying arrangements as soon as possible…” Arnav assured her…

“So she will be here this weekend I guess. Then let OP continue cleaning guest house… I have some work in the kitchen… Jiju wanted his favorite veggie dishes for lunch… Hope your friend will manage the food cooked by me…” Khushi got up and left… She didn’t want to be with him when she is still mad at him… She could easily blast him for expecting to entertain Sheetal over the weekend… But felt little relieved at least he would talk to her on Monday and did not show any interest in Sheetal staying with them…

Arnav could clearly see how mad Khushi is and followed her downstairs to talk to Sheetal… After they have been through so much, he did not want to cause her any more pain… Khushi had her own worry, now that Arnav told her he will talk to Sheetal, she did not want Aman to suddenly enter and talk about the accommodation… She desperately wanted to talk to Aman and salvage the situation else Arnav will feel she does not trust him… Her womanly instinct versus Arnav’s trust, she couldn’t let go both…

“Hi ASR, Hi Khushi” Aman entered RM before Khushi could text him… She was really worried now…

“Hey, what brings you here Aman?” Arnav asked him…

“I think ASR is forgetting things… Khushi, especially after marriage… Good change I must say…” Aman teased ASR… He could afford to do it in front of family…

“I just came to hand over Suraj project file. We have meeting with them first thing Monday and you wanted to review the project remember?” Aman replied before Khushi could say anything… Khushi let go her breath feeling relaxed…

“Aman, why don’t you join us for lunch and talk about your work later guys…” Anjali invited Aman to join for lunch…

“Oh yeah sure, who will miss yummy food made by Khushi?” Aman walked in…

Everyone was still there, La and NK, Diya and Ankit were also back… Di, Jiju and Naniji also were there… It kept HP, OP and their wives on toes since morning… And Khushi herself was busy too catering to everyone’s needs and wanting to serve them variety of dishes…

“So what’s the menu Khushi?” Aman asked…

“Awadhi Paneer, Dum Aloo Kashmiri, Spinach Undhio, and Veggie layer Biryani, salad and raita and mixed parathas…” Khushi announced the menu…

“Wow, I am glad to drop in today…” HP expanded the dining table to accommodate everyone…

And then Aman saw Sheetal and her son Aarav walking into the dining area…

“Hi Sheetal, how come you are here? I didn’t know you were here too…” Aman acted curious even though he could clearly guess, but he was curious to know Sheetal’s version. He always hated Sheetal for her lies, cheapo and clingy behavior…

“Oh, Aarav here got bored to stay in a small room at the hotel… And plus it was difficult to get Nanny there while I go out looking for a job or an apartment. So ASR suggested…” Sheetal was again going to throw the same lie to all…

“Sheetal, it very weird that I remember you telling me all this but somehow do not remember inviting you here… I mean no offense, but we already have family at home… You know how important Di, Jiju are for me so I have never invited any friends during the time Di visits us…” Arnav shunned her…

Everyone was shocked… Di and La smirked at each other thinking at last common sense prevailed in Arnav…

“Oh ASR, maybe you don’t remember. We talked while you were drinking… Never mind, now that I am here I will prefer to stay until I get an apartment…” Sheetal had no shame at all…

The whole family looked at her with disgust…

“Oh Sheetal, consider your problem solved right now…” Aman stood in front of her smirking…

“Why? I mean how?” Sheetal was worried now…

“You know I am in charge of employee quarters management right? The manager Rohit is on vacation and so security called me to hand over one bedroom apartment keys that got vacant today… So you can take that… It’s a nice one bedroom apartment and you will easily get Nanny for your son, cook and cleaners there by just asking neighbors… Plus Aarav will have other kids and play areas in the society to play… You will be all set” Aman explained…

“Oh” Sheetal’s face was crestfallen…

“Fantastic Aman, Sheetal has not yet moved into outhouse since OP was still cleaning so she can go with you directly there… Take her with you and hand her the keys…” Arnav told Aman…

“Sheetal, anyways I was about to talk to you… I really do not remember inviting you here in the first place especially when my family is visiting us and knowing Nani’s culture practices, I don’t think you will fit in here. Nani is already sick and I don’t want to stress her. Plus I and Khushi are newly married couple, wanting to spend time together so entertaining friends is not the list for maybe for another twenty years… Hope you understand…” Arnav smiled sheepishly and clarified Sheetal in no nonsense tone.

The clear communication from Arnav definitely elated family’s mood and Khushi was pleasantly surprised too…

Sheetal has no choice but to keep quiet… And here I thought I had a full proof plan, her heart chided her… Let me get the job under ASR first and then I will occupy him at work, she promised herself…

Lunch was a delicious affair with everyone praising Khushi for her cooking skills…

“But ASR, you like Italian, seafood and meat mostly…” Sheetal commented… Everyone somehow expected her not to appreciate Khushi’s cooking but purposely divert his attention…

La fisted her both hands and wanted to reply but NK stopped her letting Arnav to handle it…

“Sheetal are you crazy? We never eat non-veg inside RM… That’s Nani’s rule… And Khushi herself is a vegetarian… But she cooks amazing chicken and fish dishes… I am yet to figure out how she can cook meat to perfection without even touching it… East or west, my wife is the best… Plus she does cook meat often in the outhouse… And I must admit I love Indian food these days and the blends of coffee that she makes exclusively for me… In fact I was forced to read and understand more of coffee blends just to keep up with her and recognize the flavors…” Arnav smiled looking at Khushi and showed off how proud he is of his wife… Khushi smiled back…

“Sheetal, go look at our kitchen, it’s the state of art kitchen with latest hi-tech gadgets… We exclusively built her dream kitchen together knowing how naturally talented Chef she is… My Khushi is a 7 star level Chef and recently won India’s Master Chef... Are you even aware of what’s latest in the news?” Arnav really never shied away from showing how big fan he is of his wife…

“I agree with ASR… Khushi here can make you fall in love with all types of food and not just one type of cuisine… Her attention to details and acute sense of spices is out of this world…” Ankit also added…

“No one can argue when it comes to cooking, Khushi is the boss…” Di, La and Diya smiled and hugged Khushi…

Sheetal quickly realized the whole house is big fan of Khushi and danced to her tune… She just smiled…

“By the way Khushi, what did you say to Karan about your marriage…? He seemed totally fascinated” Aman teased Khushi and looked at ASR… Of course being his school time friend, Aman sure knows their silly rivalry.

NK and Ankit hi-fied and smiled at Khushi showing thumbs up… Of course they were there to watch live discussions last night... Arnav became angry again and fisted his hands to control his anger…

“The joke of the century is the biggest Casanova of this planet Karan is now thinking about marriage… All thanks to your gorgeous wife… Seems like you guys are carrying on your silly rivalry forever… At least from his side… ASR, believe it or not, he still follows you to the T…” Aman laughed out loud…

No one else could clearly understand what is going on… But they could see Arnav really angry…

“ASR, don’t worry… Jokes apart, Karan really admired Khushi for the immense love she has for you… And he just said it forced him think about having a real life partner…” Aman smiled at ASR’s reaction…

“Yeah Khushi, yesterday you made me let go of our differences… Diya and I talked overnight… I have invited her mom to come next week and we will discuss about our marriage and take things further” Ankit announced…

“Shut up Ankit, you guys cannot get engaged before me and La…” NK looked at La mischievously and asked her if she is ready…

“What the?” Came Arnav’s usual dialogue…

“I mean yeah its obvious right? La and I have been dating for a while now… So if she is ready, I want to get engaged as soon as possible and marry her” NK smiled…

“For that you have to propose and ask me first? And not declare like this?” La hit him on his shoulder…

“I am asking now in front of the whole family… I am no longer afraid of commitment nor can anyone else ever makes me feel crazy in love like you… La, will you marry me? I am no ASR to propose you with tons of words but I will be committed to you for life… You will get bored of me but I will never… I really love you… So will you marry me?” NK asked her going down to his knees…

“Yes NK, I love you too” La hugged him tight…

Everyone congratulated both the couples… Naniji blessed them all…

Chapter 52 – Sheetal Out the Door! (By Swatideep) (Thanked: 100 times)

Here Comes the Next Chapter! 


Enjoy! 



Chapter 52 – Sheetal Out the Door!

“But what did you say Khushi? Even fool NK has become serious… I hate to admit but I was worried for my La darling…” Naniji teased La but was curious… Nani was hesitant about Lavanya initially but knowing her cultural values, she took liking her just like Khushi…

“Nothing Nani, we were just discussing about our marriage. How Arnav said it was love marriage for him and arranged marriage for me… I just told them the honest truth” Khushi was blushing and little shy…

“Yeah, you said you would have married anyone your parents chose for you and then…” Sheetal intervened…

“Oh come on Sheetal, you clearly heard what I said to conclude the discussion. Arnav had to leave but you were standing right next to me… Why are you manipulating things?” Khushi knew right there that Sheetal triggered Arnav’s possessive behavior last night… The way he kept ordering drinks and Sheetal kept smirking, Khushi could reconfirm her intuition about Sheetal and connect the dots finally…

She will slowly know the detailed background… But right now she wanted to show Sheetal her place… Definitely she belongs neither in RM, nor in their personal lives!

“Nothing much Naniji… I said given a chance, I will follow the same path of arranged marriage without a flinch knowing it will make my parents and you so happy… And then Devi Mayya wrote Arnav, a real man in my destiny who honors, loves, respects and cares for me… When the first time I met him, I never knew he would be this important to me… Today he is the love of my life, means the world to me… You all look at him as the ASR, business tycoon hot and what not… But my Arnav is even better, I can’t share anything about him though because I am so possessive… All I can say is the world is not always perfect, we are still discovering each other out but our time together always seems perfect… I love him like crazy and he too is equally crazy for me. That’s all that matters… Our love is way above our personal status or tall achievements he has…” Khushi repeated what she said and everyone clapped for her…

She was so shy and she ran to the kitchen…

Shock was an understatement for Arnav… No wonder all others were inspired by her story overnight…

“I never had doubts about Khushi being the perfect and best choice for my Chote… But Khushi has proved it again and again… Chote what do you have to say about your wife?” Naniji teased her grandson… She was always confident about Khushi to handle her grandson well even though Khushi is just 20 years old…

“What can I say Nani? You are the best Nani in the world and you got me the best girl… I am not sure I am worthy of her but I will try to be… I have no idea how she manages to love me?” Arnav accepted it openly…

“Even we have no idea how she manages to love you duffer… After what you make her go through…” La said and everyone hi-fied… Arnav protested and then laughed it off…

He needed to escape from there and find his wife…

Sheetal also saw ASR head over heels in love with his wife and she has tough task to barge in… And already this Aman is pushing her out the door… She has to re-plan, she knew…

“Sheetal, let’s go” Aman needed to leave for home… Not that he cared for Sheetal, but he wanted to make sure she is out of his friend’s life…

“Aman, focus on the report on her… And a report about her personal affairs and that kid as well… Should be on my table tomorrow or you are fired…” ASR ordered speaking to his employee…       

“I no longer want to work for you… I might as well take up the job offered by Khushi… Arrogant and dumb ASR…” Spat came a reply from Aman…

“Watch your words Aman, I haven’t fired you yet… And why would Khushi offer you a job?” Arnav warned him but curious…

“Keep this behavior at work, here I am your friend unfortunately… I know you can’t fire me anywhere and you will get the report on your table tomorrow. By the way Khushi hasn’t offered me any job but she would… She appreciates how smart and loyal I am unlike you idiot…” Aman winked at him…

“What the?” Before Arnav could say anything further, Aman ran out… Arnav was used to Aman taking revenges outside office… They were buddies from school…

Sheetal reluctantly walked out of RM… Sheetal was pissed off with how ASR never bothered to say bye or even talked to Aarav for that matter…

“Sir, the house needs to be cleaned yet… I told you… So maybe it’s better if you can come back tomorrow…” Security guard informed Aman…

“Aman, if the house was not yet cleaned, I could have stayed back at RM. Why did you get me here? Now drop me back to RM again…” Sheetal was angry…

“Sheetal, you are talking as if Raizada Mansion is your own house… I will book you a hotel nearby for one night. Didn’t you see how reluctant everyone was in RM to have you as guest? ASR simply denied him inviting you over at RM to stay… Are you crazy to go back there? They already have their family visiting… Leave them alone… And have some self-respect, lady…” Aman was shocked at her audacity but told her exactly what she needed to hear and drove her to nearby hotel…

“I called and booked a room for one night in the name of Sheetal Kapoor” Aman asked at the counter and let Sheetal step forward…

Aman vanished from there by saying bye while she was still checking room details… Sheetal was forced to pay for the room rent and was completely pissed off…

“I will teach Aman a lesson tomorrow… Why do I feel it was Khushi who asked Aman to look for an apartment or somehow get me out of RM? She was always texting and looking at her phone… I will not leave her too…” Sheetal promised herself…

After lavish late lunch, everyone took off to their own rooms…

Arnav waited for Khushi to come back in the room… He was remembering what conspired last night because he never heard what Khushi had to say about their marriage… Or rather Sheetal had heard it but she purposely triggered him knowing he never heard Khushi… What a fool he turned out to be?

He was being so possessive and crazy, did he hurt his Khushi? The thought made him shiver…

“What the? Thank god, Sheetal didn’t get chance to stay in RM… And I will make sure not to hire her ever again… Last time also all lies, email chains and frauds pointed to Sheetal… He almost lost a huge contract if he and Aman were not cunning and made last minute changes in the tender to win it… It was a mutual decision then that only ASR and Aman will know the final numbers and loyalty of Aman was never in doubt… That decision shaped AR Designs and took the company to sky heights of success…” Arnav remembered how Sheetal was at the center of cheating and leaking information to rivals and how she had backstabbed him…

“Sheetal resigned back then and made it a big issue to avoid confrontation… But she manipulated things just like she did between me and Khushi… One proof and she is out of our lives for good… And I must see detailed reports on her, what was she up to all these years” Arnav was clear in his thinking…

“Kamala Maasi, this is Naniji’s room, come…” Khushi took Kamala Maasi to meet Nani. Arnav saw Khushi busy with Nani…

“How are you Kamala?” She was Nani’s friend from temple. Much younger lady in her late 50’s but always talked to Nani and is very friendly.

“Nani, she used to do massages for living. So I thought it will help you plus you will get to meet your friend daily… Kamala Maasi here also needs a job” Khushi informed Nani…

Khushi served Nani her protein shake while she was busy talking and she drank it first time without complaining. Routine was set. Every day Kamala Maasi will be there in RM 4-6 pm with Nani. Everyone could see an immediate difference in Nani when she has a friend visiting her…

“Khushi where are you? Need my coffee…” Arnav called out for her…

“I am busy with Nani… Can you please ask HP?” Khushi asked him with pretty much a poker face without giving insights of what she is thinking…

“She is still mad at me…” Arnav thought it would be easy to talk to her pool side…

“Khushi, can we go out for dinner?” Arnav asked her holding her hand and forcing her to sit next to him…

“No Arnav, as is we had heavy lunch… Plus Di and Jiju are here for few more days. So let’s spend time with them…” Khushi replied…

“Ok, as you say. So what have you decided? Should we start on your own restaurants or you want to wait?” Arnav was trying hard to converse with her…

“Arnav I am not yet sure… Maybe I prefer to work at Oberoi for another year while slowly coming up with ideas as to what type of restaurants I want to open up… I have two choices, thanks to you… Plus I have invitation to judge or host the new TV show “Food Champs” which I might take up… I prefer hosting since I love hands on involvement in food preparations… Though I am still thinking about it… And I want to manage my time well and not overdo things…” Khushi was thinking about how hectic her life is going to be once she starts her routine from next week…

“Oh, I see… So my wife wants to be a TV face now that she is so popular…” Arnav teased her…

“Nothing like that… Let’s see. Oberoi will be fun too to cook with all my friends… I plan to join next Thursday… Plus BK offered me partnership if I am interested…” Khushi looked excited…

“So what did you say to him? Did you accept the offer?” Arnav asked curiously…

“Nothing yet… But I want to carve my own niche… We both have different choices. He wants to specialize in sweets and I am keen to have my own signature restaurants… So let us see…” Khushi replied to him…

“Khushi would you mind me asking something?” Arnav asked her to sit with him…

“Why didn’t you say yes to BK, I mean he is highly educated, so good looking…? Even better than me…” Arnav asked her genuinely…

“Can anyone ever look better than you, like seriously Mr. Arnav Singh Raizada? You just like to hear about yourself, isn’t it?” Khushi joked…

“I told you… I always wanted to marry someone my parents choose” Khushi replied.

“Is that the only thing?” Arnav was curious…

“My best friend Prito had love marriage last year and both families were not able to accept the marriage… They both faced so many problems. Prito had hard time adjusting at her in law’s place and came back home after just 2 months… Her sister’s marriage took place a couple of months before and her parents could not afford another daughter’s marriage so quickly… It was very stressful period for them and her father got a heart attack during that time… Things are ok now and Prito and her husband reconciled but Prito’s mom always shared her worries with Amma… Amma and Baoji felt Prito could have taken a wiser decision and involved families early or respect parents’ wishes also… She could have waited for another year and not burden her parents with another marriage expenses…” Khushi told him the history behind her choice…

“Since Amma has heart problem, I never wanted to stress her out or snatch their right to choose my life partner… And I really wanted to work and earn some money before marriage” Khushi concluded…

“And BK was never serious… So don’t worry about him… BK, Natasha and I are besties… Every time Natasha dated someone, he came crying to me, wanted me as his date and he even went on to propose me twice… No doubt, he loves me more as his best friend and neighbor but he was confused I guess… We had a long talk before I said yes to marry you…” Khushi gave him insight…

“Really?” Arnav was surprised how Khushi considered everyone’s feelings before taking decisions…

“Yes, I informed him when my parents decided to call Naniji to inform her about their acceptance to marriage proposal… BK teased me about how I had explained about my first impressions about you… I had told him that Naniji’s grandson is very good looking and stylish…” Khushi remembered how BK was happy for her…

“BK visited temple many times and knew Naniji back then… Naniji also knew BK as my friend… She asked me couple of times whether we were just friends or dating before she came up with your marriage proposal…” Khushi knew Nani would not want to break her relationship just for her grandson…

“And guess what? Natasha went for further studies in Mumbai University… She is doing event management and is your diehard fan… She really knows everything about you…” Khushi laughed remembering how BK explained Natasha’s reaction when she got to know Khushi married the mighty Arnav Singh Raizada…

“Are you kidding me? I am no film star… What BK has to say about it?” Arnav just shrugged it off…

“He begs me not to introduce her to you while she begs me to introduce her…” Khushi smiled.

“Really funny…” Arnav did not know what else to say…

“What is so funny…? You are talking as if you don’t know how strong fan following you have especially young girls and women…” Khushi knew how famous and popular her husband is…

“But looks like I really got really lucky then… Any BK, NK or Ankit could not grab any attention from my wife… In spite of all my shortcomings, you love me…” He looked into her eyes…

“Shut up Arnav, we all have our behavioral traits… You have yours and I have mine… It makes us who we are… And I am equally lucky to have you in my life… After all the mighty Arnav Singh Raizada is my husband and loves me like crazy…” She really knows how lucky she is…

“Are you still angry Khushi?” Arnav pulled her closer and pecked her…

“No Arnav, I am not… I was just a little disappointed” She couldn’t hide her true feelings either…

“I am so sorry Khushi… I never knew Sheetal could take advantage of situation like that” He genuinely apologized.

“It’s ok Arnav, maybe we should be more careful in future… I take the blame about my overly honest talks about our marriage… I guess world does not need to know…” Khushi rested her head on his shoulder thinking hopefully Arnav pushes her out of AR too…

“No Khushi, please don’t blame yourself… I did not hear you out and behaved very judgmental and rash…” Arnav also accepted his mistake… He kept patting her head and kissed her forehead… Khushi wanted to ask Arnav about what Sheetal hinted about that kid…

But just then they heard Sonia crying and being so cranky… Di’s doubt was right… Sonia has fever and she was very uneasy… They decided to take it easy and be at home…

“Di, you don’t worry. I will take care of Nani tonight… I will be with her and you take care of our angel…” Khushi made Anjali relaxed…

“I will call Savita aunty” Arnav announced…

“Yeah, she will be big help…” Khushi immediately agreed. Arnav was surprised Khushi knew her…

Arnav made sure to call Savita aunty, HP’s aunt who is a nurse for additional help.
