Chapter 9 - Sheetal pays her due!

Sheetal and Aarav came down next morning with their stuff packed and ready to go… Sheetal gestured Aarav when they sat for breakfast…

“Mom, I don’t want to move from here… I love everyone here so much…” Aarav started crying…

“Oh my god, we too love you so much…” Anjali always carried her emotions on her sleeves. And everyone have been attached to Aarav especially Anjali.

“But Aarav, your mother’s decision is right. You cannot live your whole life in other people’s house right? You have to move out. So sooner the better… And you can always come and visit us…” Khushi politely informed him…

Sheetal had the fake DNA report handy as last resort in case all the drama does not work…

“But I want to stay here with my family… ASR is like my father” Aarav directly called ASR his father… Arnav was coming down the stairs when he heard that and was shocked to death even though he had expected it… Before he could reply, he heard Khushi taking charge and replying him.

“Aarav, just because you act and behave like ASR, it does not make him your father… You do understand that right? Arnavji is not your father” Khushi made it clear in no nonsense tone.

“No ASR is my father. Mom has told me the truth… You don’t involve in our family matters…” Aarav was arrogant.

“Watch your tone Aarav. You are standing in our house… It doesn’t matter what lies your mom says… Arnavji is not your father. There is not such proof” Khushi warned Aarav in no nonsense tone… She was so done with both mother and son duo… She was cursing the day she felt pity and decided to entertain them at RM!

“But a DNA report would prove it, isn’t it Khushi?” Sheetal made a direct accusation with pulling out DNA report from her handbag.

“Oh Sheetal, grow up… You get DNA reports manipulated for few hundreds these days… Do you think we will buy your accusation?” Khushi has seen this coming and she is also equally prepared to take Sheetal head on and show her door today itself…

“What more proof you want? Aarav is exactly like ASR… In everything he does, even family members have said it so many times that Aarav is exactly like ASR in the childhood… And let me remind you Aarav is also diabetic just like ASR…” Sheetal used family members comparing Aarav to Arnav to her own advantage…

“They might have compared but tell me anyone in my family looks like a fool to not realize Aarav must be trained to act like Arnavji… It is common sense lady… Simple fact is Aarav is behaving like ASR and not like Arnavji when he was a young kid… Arnavji used to be happy go lucky kid just like any other normal child until the age of 14 when his parents passed away. Losing his mom took a tool on his health and behavior… The stress and lifestyle made him diabetic… So not a genetic diabetes you see and there is not much chance to pass to his kids when they will be born in future… And Aarav acts like ASR because he must be trained. And unfortunately you did not provide attention to details nor with his training or Arnavji’s diabetes…” Khushi smirked after her reply to Sheetal…

Naniji, Mamiji and Anjali Di were aghast with where the discussion was going. Sheetal accusing their Chote to be father of Aarav, Khushi bluntly denying the accusation on her husband and pointing fingers back at Sheetal. They truly regretted being totally insensitive towards Khushi and calling Aarav like Arnav all these days in front of Khushi… And Khushi is so right, Aarav behaved like ASR not like Arnav in childhood, how did they miss such a huge hint?

“By the way Sheetal, Aarav has not inherited a single behavior trait from you. So does it mean he is not your son? Did you adopt him or something?” Khushi’s smirk is growing bigger and Sheetal started fumbling…

Khushi had long back concluded Aarav is not Sheetal’s son! She did not need any DNA test to prove it… Simple observations about the duo did it for her… Sheetal did not much about Aarav, from his food habits to his homework to his likes and dislikes… Everything was superficial… And if she is his real mother that too single parent, they would know each other like A to Z or like a shadow… But it is nowhere close… Sheetal fumbled so many times with basic questions on Aarav, it was hard to ignore for Khushi…

And Sheetal’s current reaction concreted Khushi’s doubt…

“No… Anjali Di, I am telling you all the truth… Aarav is ASR’s son from the affair we had during college days…” Sheetal looked at Raizada ladies trying to gain some support and sympathy…

It was like an earthquake for Raizada clan… They already guessed what Sheetal was trying but hearing it directly is still not easy…

“Sheetal, I don’t know what you are trying to prove here… But you are nowhere close to what you pretend… You are fake and liar… And irrespective of it, I trust Khushi and Chote completely…” Anjali stood by Khushi…

“Hello hi bye bye, I also support Khushi bitiya… You lie a lot… I have observed you enough. You don’t even know basic cooking and you lied about taking care of Aarav” Mamiji also shunned Sheetal…

“Khushi bitiya, I never approved of Sheetal in this house because somewhere I never liked her… I never trusted her and I was right… Bitiya, we all are with you… I don’t want this woman in my house anymore” Naniji ordered Sheetal to be thrown out.

“Nice try Sheetal, but won’t work on us…” With that Khushi gave her a tight slap and Sheetal fell down…

“Sheetal, I would like to see Aarav’s birth certificate and let’s do a fresh DNA test from three different third clinics for all three of you… And plus a background check on you, your so called son to validate your stories… Sounds like a plan? Let’s involve police as well private detectives” Khushi went and grabbed home phone to call police and detectives.

Sheetal was sweating profusely and shivering by now… Arnav was pleasantly surprised how his wife smartly pounced on Sheetal and he didn’t have to do anything…

“No need, I already have the DNA report. It says ASR is his father…” Sheetal tried her luck again…

“Oh, I see. It says the result is positive because you wanted it to be positive, isn’t it?” First time Arnav gets involved in conversation…

“No ASR, believe me its true…” Sheetal tried going close to him with fake tears in her eyes… But little she guessed what she would get next…. Another strong tight slap from ASR too….

“Not a chance lady… I might have had casual affairs but none of them were any physical relationships… Because I really hated my father doing that against my mother… I don’t need to tell you about my past but I will never do that one thing for sure… I have promised my mom while she was dying that I will always be loyal to my love who is my wife… So if I will have any physical relationships and have my own kids, it will be only with my wife Khushi because I love her to death and no one else…” Arnav made it clear and even Khushi was happy to hear his possessiveness for her…

“We never even had any affair… We precisely went for one coffee date, date if you want to call it when you asked me to drop you once from college and we picked up coffee on the way… Otherwise we were never even had same friend circle… Basketball yeah, we played together once a while but that’s about it…” Arnav explained their mere friendship… Even Khushi is shocked how much Sheetal lied them being besties behind his back…

“No ASR trust me, it was the graduation night…” Sheetal faked to remind him…

That’s when Anjali came forward and slapped Sheetal hard twice…

“That day was Ma’s death anniversary that year. There is no way Chote will party that night… You liar, witch… Get out of our house… right now” Anjali angrily pushed Sheetal hard…

Anjali has had enough of cheaters, first her so called husband and now Sheetal… She wouldn’t tolerate them even for a second…

“By the way, the ward boy whom you paid money to change DNA report has been caught along with the video recording showing you paying him bribe and asking him to change the report so do you still want to continue your claim that Aarav is my son when you adopted him 3 months ago?” Arnav smirked at her… All Raizadas including Khushi gasped…

By then police arrived and so did Bank people, her old company’s HR manager and the managing director Mrs. Sharma from Angel orphanage…

Sheetal did not know what came over her but her game was over in few minutes… Her truth was out and with the list of frauds she has committed, she was taken into custody by the police…

“Hello hi bye bye, now go to jail and die…” With that Mamiji also slapped Sheetal hard… How could she miss the golden opportunity?

“Thank you Mr. Raizada, we would like to take Aarav back to Angel Orphanage. And thank you for taking care of his further education and needs” With that Mrs. Sharma took Aarav with her…

“Sheetal, I know you really liked RM and its luxuries… So I arranged for you much bigger house… And that too for a very long term… Have fun” Arnav mocked her in ASR tone…

Sheetal’s chapter was over from their lives hopefully permanently…

But it did leave lots of scars behind…

It questioned Raizada family’s integrity, trust for each other and standing by each other in the time of crisis…

In the end truth prevailed and the storm was over but it did leave some destruction behind especially between Arnav and Khushi to be cleared…

Arnav called his lawyers to make sure Sheetal is punished hardest….

Chapter 10 – Remorse! (By Swatideep) (Thanked: 141 times)

Sorry all for delay on the update.... But I am back to update this story... 

Here goes the next chapter... Loved all your comments and likes on this one... 

Bring it on...


Chapter 10 – Remorse!

Everyone just sat in the living room and took a deep breath to sink in the conspiracy Sheetal planned and how easily they all were fooled except for Khushi…

“Khushi, we are so sorry for getting sucked up into Sheetal’s web of lies and acting so insensitive towards you… But how did you not trust Sheetal or not feel insecure?” Anjali asked Khushi genuinely…

“Di, I did feel insecure and disappointed many times initially… But then when I observed Sheetal closely, I could clearly see there were too many deliberate attempts to miss… Like Sheetal always trying to be with Arnavji, go to office and come back with him, hog his time with an excuse of work, always talk about their college days and old memories… And that kid acting as ASR was icing on the cake… It was too convenient to be true… For god sake, our own kids would not act so similar so it was all fishy for me immediately… Then I was watching Sheetal all the time and could see her asking Aarav to be with Arnavji and be close to him all the time… And then when DNA report came on my name, I was very sure she is the culprit… Because I never thought about doing any DNA test, why would I? I trusted Arnavji totally after he clarified to me… But the report somehow showed up at RM and was ordered by me… I kind of felt no one else but Sheetal can benefit from a DNA report that too a positive DNA report…” Khushi concluded…

Everyone was shocked that so many things were happening in front of their eyes but they missed it completely… In fact ended up ignoring Khushi who is their own to pamper Sheetal and that spoilt brat Aarav…

“Khushi, I applaud you for standing strong with Chote in spite of a positive DNA report by Sheetal showing Aarav as his son” Nani was proud of Khushi…

“Naniji, how can I not? He is my husband… I will always trust him over anyone else and stand by with him no matter what. How can I take **** against my family especially my husband from an outsider? Khushi said as a matter of fact.

It was Arnav’s turn to be immensely proud of her yet devastated that he did exactly opposite. 

“Then why didn’t you share it with any of us? We could have thrown Sheetal out long ago…” Payal asked her angrily…

“I did confide in Arnavji but never mind… It’s all over now… I guess let’s live and learn…” Khushi moved onto kitchen while everyone looking at Arnav with accusing eyes…

Yes, he was her culprit big time… He failed her again and again… She trusted him always… And he always acted snobbish, entertained his ego and anger while hurting her…

A week passed by… Arnav was drowning is the misery he created by not trusting Khushi and ignoring her! He did not know how to apologize or rather does he even deserved her apology?

Khushi tried to behave normal but she knew he has to learn his lesson on whom to trust and come out of his miseries himself… Most crucial, understand the importance of his better half in his life! So she decided to give him space… After all he has to stop being a snob and respect her and give her the rights!

“Di, its overnight trip and I have never gone alone before…” Khushi was arguing with Di and Payal…

“Khushi, but I want you to go… Anyways some people in this house truly deserve cold treatment from you… You should go, enjoy the change and rejuvenate yourself while some people can sulk and spend whole life thinking about mending their mistakes… But before that they are ready with new mistakes… They never seem to learn from their mistakes…” Anjali was bitter about her Chote’s behavior…

“Yes Khushi, you should go. And you are not alone… All of them are with you. Let him realize your value…” Even Payal encouraged her…

“Yeah, Arnav beta had to act so dumb… He needs punishments for troubling his wife….I am with you Khushi” Even mami joined…

“That’s not my idea of vacation, just to trouble Arnavji… I just wanted to go because of my friends and it’s been a long time with them…” Khushi said.

“Arnavji, we are planning to go to Agra on a two days trip… Sia, Karan, Jia with her boyfriend Yash, Prito with her husband and me. Sia said she will book a house and we will stay there… We are planning to head there tomorrow morning…” Khushi informed Arnav…

So she no longer believes in asking me to go with her… She is just informing me and going… And she didn’t invite me to go with her while her friend’s boyfriend or husband joining? Just great and who to blame… He himself…

“Ok Khushi, have fun…” He had nothing else to say. He just fisted his hands and walked away towards his room…

Khushi found him sitting on the recliner pool side and looking at the sky… She did not know how to break the ice between them… Is it ok to give him space or taking him with her on the trip is better, she did not know… She sighed… Why can’t he behave normal and openly communicate?

“Chote, why are you here?” Anjali was surprised seeing her Chote sitting at the end of her bed and completely lost…

“Di, I don’t deserve her… I will lose her” Arnav hugged Anjali tight and poured his heart out…

Anjali just felt like slapping her brother… First he makes horrible mistakes and then cries over spilled milk! When will he learn to keep things simple and anger out of his life…

“Chote, Khushi is going nowhere… But it’s high time you resolve your differences. If you make mistakes, own them and apologize… Make sure you never hurt her like that…” Anjali warned him stern.

“Di, help me please… Why do I feel she is going away from me?” He asked her pleading…

“If she is going away from you, you go after her… I can only give you hints, you have to do it yourself Chote… It’s high time!” Anjali didn’t want her brother to be weak and dependent on her whole life…

“Ok, I will” He walked back to their room depressed… He could barely sleep whole night…

He woke up to lot of noise at home… He could hear Sia and Jia talking so loudly about something during their last trip and they all were laughing…

It was 8 am. How did he manage to sleep so late? He called Aman to cancel all his calls for the day… With whatever sleep he got, he could at least think something…

Karan drove 10 minutes from RM… Everyone was having fun… Khushi was still lost, was she right in leaving her Arnavji alone for two days? Or should she have invited him to join her? She was confused… He also never showed any interest, her heart chided her…

“Have fun, my foot… Does he not know me at all? And he made excuse to attend call and walked away? Huh, Laad Governor will never change…” Khushi was angry by now…

Another 5 minutes and Karan pulled over…

“What happened Karan? Why did you stop so early? Anything wrong?” Everyone jumped out of the SUV to check if there is flat tire…

Karan went and opened the truck in the back… Arnav came out barely able to breathe…

Khushi was shocked was an understatement… She remembered how she by mistake got into his once while him and Lavanya were going to Nainital…

“Arnavji, what are you doing here?” Khushi was still under shock…

“I had a meeting in Agra so I thought I will also go…” Arnav replied sheepishly…

“This is how you will attend the meeting? By suffocating in trunk of a car? Why didn’t you go in your own car?” Khushi was still surprised and kept on firing questions…

Arnav looked at Karan for some help… Before his wife could go over crazy worrying about him and bombard him with more questions, Arnav gestured Karan to help…

“Come on Khushi, the lover boy wanted to impress his wife! And you are asking him million questions?” Karan winked at Arnav…

Khushi looked at him and blushed profusely realizing Arnav wanted to join them…

“Let’s get going guys, we are already late!” Arnav was back with his ASR tone…

“Did you remember anything Khushi?” Arnav asked sitting next to her in the car…

“What? I don’t” She was still stiff and purposely denied that she remembered their Nainital trip…

It was a beautiful view of Taj Mahal in the background of full moon night… Khushi chose to wear a beautiful white sari with golden work… She looked drop dead gorgeous taking Arnav’s breathe away…

Everyone had their own definition and meaning of Taj Mahal…

“So what’s the meaning of love and this Taj Mahal for ASR?” Prito asked naughtily…

“I don’t know about love or this Taj Mahal either… If any special feelings means for me, just start with Khushi… She is love for me…” Arnav replied honestly…

“Awe, how cute and romantic?” Even one looked at him and but Khushi didn’t buzz…

“What is it for you Khushi?” They asked Khushi…

“I have to come to realization, only love is not sufficient… Just like those 4 pillars of Taj Mahal, we need Care, communication, trust and respect along with love…” Khushi replied politely thinking about it…

“Did he fail in all those departments?” Was an instant thought in Arnav’s mind… Khushi could easily guess the storm in mind…

“Guys let’s wrap up for tonight… We are visiting again tomorrow…” She knew Arnav needed to sleep. She has seen him restless for days and he badly needed her help…

“Arnavji, here is your medicine and water…”Little did he know she has added sleeping pill in his water…

“So how many departments did I fail Khushi? All of them?” Arnav asked her wanting to know the answer… She could feel his shivering and restless cold hands!

“We will get there Arnavji, together… One step at a time!” Was her instant reply as if she was expecting him to ask that question…

Before he could ask any more questions, she allowed him to hold her hand, his favorite position while sleeping… Soon he dozed off to a deep slumber…

Lone tear escaped from her eyes, for him and for her!

Chapter 11 – Arnav showing his charm! (By Swatideep) (Thanked: 117 times)

Thank you for the overwhelming love and comments and likes for this story! 

As I had mentioned this story will soon be over since it's a short story! 

Enjoy the next chapter! 

Chapter 11 – Arnav showing his charm!


“What is this place Karan?” Everyone was shocked to see the beautiful two story modern cottage house with equally beautiful rose garden in the front…

Everyone is surprised to be standing in front of a beautiful house early morning at 8.00 am…

Sia herself booked a house online and she was sure she booked the house for 3 days… So what changed for Karan to ask them vacate it? And then how did they get free upgrade to a spectacular house like this? She was confused…

“Sorry Sia, ASR changed the plan… He made me cancel our bookings and move here at their guest house… Yesterday it was still to be cleaned and he needed to get few things done… Now we get the best food and services…” Karan showed his hands up indicating not his fault…

“Not that we are complaining… This is so gorgeous!” Prito jumped…

“Thank you ASR… You are the best!” All the girls screamed and rushed inside…

They were so excited, they dumped luggage at the door and ran to take a tour of the house…

The house was charming from inside with a beautiful hall open concept modern kitchen with island and dining area… One guest bedroom and two bathrooms downstairs, 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms upstairs…

Backyard had a gorgeous pool with a waterfall falling from the spa tub, fireplace with lounge and BBQ area under the gazebo… So many tall trees guarding the privacy and keeping it cool… All in all it matched ASR standard…

They could immediately see three to four servants around. One busy in the kitchen, one helping cleaning and serving where as one already started taking care of their luggage…

“Thanks to ASR, we are in for a royal vacation…” Karan.

“Looks like ASR has already informed the care taker… The house is ready for us and I can smell delicious food” Sachin, Prito’s husband commented…  

All got freshen up and they were served heavy breakfast with variety of cold beverages…

“Wow, Aloo paratha, puri bhaji, rabadi, fresh fruits and ginger tea as well… Khushi, come here and see” Ria shouted and called Khushi…

“What now? I am too hungry” Khushi stood next to the island where dishes were served… It didn’t take her a minute to realize that all her most favorite dishes were being served for breakfast… She knew Arnavji has ordered the menu specifically for her…

Khushi looked at Arnav and he raised his eye brow. She did not give him any reaction and started eating… Everyone thoroughly enjoyed sumptuous dinner and relaxed in the backyard lounge area…

“So what’s the plan for two days Karan and Sia?” Prito asked curiously…

“Maybe we can again go and see Taj Mahal during day time, Agra Fort or Fatehpur Sikri and then head out for some local shopping, what say?” Sia asked everyone…

“Sia don’t worry about it… Everyone have breakfast and get ready… Tour bus with tour guide will come in half an hour…” Arnav warned them all…

“Yeah, that’s super fun…” Everyone dug into the yummy breakfast…

Tour bus with an expert guide took them to Taj Mahal first… Lunch was arranged back side of Taj on the bank of the river… Again all Khushi’s favorite chat items and everyone was in treat for Arnav’s attention to details…

With VIP treatment throughout the day trip they could cover Agra Fort and Fatehpur Sikri and baby Taj as well…  

They came back exhausted around 6 pm in the evening… Yet they could cover all the places they wanted to see and head home for additional fun…

“Let’s get into the pool and spa, it will be fun…” All the girls got into spa while guys sat around fire pit with their beers as well as took laps into the pool…

The cook and helpers arranged for variety of grilled veggies, paneer and non-veg items… Variety of Biryanis and Shahi desserts concluded their dinner…

Karan being model has a great body but ASR stole the show… His sculpted body in a swim short was a delight to watch…

“Khushi, ASR has a body to die for… You are so lucky, he loves you so much!” Sia teased Khushi…

“Yeah Khushi, I am so jealous to see him dote on you…” Prito winked at her…

“God, he looks so hot and ****y… I am sure you guys must be…” Sia left the sentence in the middle and girls did hi-fi…

Khushi turned all red and flushed… Arnav smirked from the distance guessing her friends were up to something… But he could see Khushi flaring up and getting angry…

“My angry and jealous kitten!” Arnav could easily read Khushi’s state and guessed her friends must have commented about him…

Even Arnav has seen her first time in shorts and her long, toned legs were so tempting for him! He was equally possessive and would want to hide her in his arms… She was only for his eyes and his eyes are only on her throughout the day…

Khushi rushed towards bathroom through the dim lights in the master bedroom… The master bedroom was not open during the day so no one including her has seen the room…

Immediately she came out of the bathroom and tried to switch on the light to find her clothes and towel before she takes the shower…

Shock was an understatement… Master bedroom was out of this world with a lovely antique sixteenth century furniture… Just above the huge bed, a canvas was hung on the wall with a collage of their pictures together…

Another side wall adorned beautiful pictures from their marriage and every ceremony during their second time marriage!

Khushi opened the closet and was shocked to see so many Indian and western dresses and saris…

Arnav just walked in behind her still in swim shorts and stood close behind her…

“Like what you see?” He asked her with a smirk… He could see from her face that she loved their room and his surprise for sure…

“Laad Governor, what was the need to swim in the shorts and show off your body?” Khushi showed her anger instantly…

“Khushi, I was talking about the room!” He couldn’t hide his laugh…

“Shut up!” She turned and was ready to get in the bathroom… She hated that she was caught… Err, what was she thinking?

“Khushi, are you jealous?” Arnav nailed her to the wall and smirked as usual…

“No way…” How she wished to wipe that smirk from his face… Why she couldn’t focus on what he was asking…

“There is nothing to be jealous baby when I am all yours… And did you like my surprises, I have been trying hard to woo my darling wife, you see…” His ASR tone was back… He pulled her in a hug and pecked her… He really didn’t want to tease her anymore…

They have been away from each other for a while and the desire was mounting in… She is still angry but her body gave in to his efforts and love… Soon he drove her in a passionate kiss slowly moving themselves inside bathroom…

The night showed Khushi his passion for her, only her….

Next during the shopping and return journey, Arnav was full on display of how much he loves his wife! Hand holding, gentle pecks on her cheeks while choosing things for her, sharing her ice cream or feeding her, he did it all in front of her friends and Khushi was left blushing whole day…

Anjali and family could see Arnav walking in holding her hand possessively and smiled feeling relief!

Chapter 12 - Being there for her! (By Swatideep) (Thanked: 132 times)

Hello All, 


Thank you for loving this story so much and all your precious comments... Maybe couple of chapers and this story will be done... 


So enjoy... Don't forget your likes and comments! 




Chapter 12 - Being there for her!

While driving to office next day, Arnav saw huge hoardings with Khushi, a baby and Karan advertising the baby products as a family… Oh my, Khushi looked so gorgeous, Arnav remembered she did the ad few weeks ago… As soon as he went to office, he watched all her new ads on you tube. Needless to say he fell in love with her all over again!

She is mesmerizing as a mother of an infant baby! She looked amazing in every form, after waking up from a sleepless night, in saris, in jeans or dresses and the baby responding to her so well… She is indeed the right choice!

But he hated to see her with Karan… Karan acting as her husband in the ads… Though they looked great together, he was jealous as hell… He could not see his Khushi with anyone else!

And here he had the guts to sit in their own house and spend time with so called ex’ and her son in front of his wife ignoring her!

This guilt will take its own course to go away completely… He knew but he was on a right track to rebuild their relationship…

This time whole family is a bit relieved especially Akash and his Di… But they made sure he earns Khushi’s apology and love on his own without any help from them… Arnav was tired of ignorance and cold shoulder from the family so seeing them warm up to him was relief for him too…

Everyone saw Arnav started doing things Khushi loves, spending time with her and especially mimicking all her antics and they could see Khushi’s heart slowly melting… Maybe soon they will completely get over with!

“Khushiji, I am sure it will be ok with Chote… And adverti****t shooting does not take long. I really enjoy your shootings so I will always accompany you… Come on, you should take it up…” Anjali insisted Khushi when she got to know about Khushi being offered a new assignment…

“And it is again with Karan who is your great friend so it will be easy… In fact Karan called me to tell the great news and is keen that you accept the new assignment…” Payal added.

“Khushi beta, you look so good on screen… I would be happy but it is your choice…” Naniji also gave her approval.

“Hello hi, bye bye… now I will have to see your face in between my favorite serials… But I am bery bery happy… I can tell my friends in kitty party that you are my daughter-in-law!” Everyone looked at Mami…

“I don’t know… Let me think and talk to Arnavji also… First let me attend grand ceremony for the baby product launch tomorrow… The company is very excited with their initial product success and buzz around it… You all are coming, right? Tomorrow evening in South-X mall at 6.00 pm sharp” Khushi asked and everyone nodded a big yes… They all wanted to be part of her success!

Arnav walked in to hear their conversation and could easily guess Khushi was offered another ad assignment…

Arnav was beyond jealous and over possessive when he heard Karan insisted and in fact recommended Khushi for the new ad… He knows Karan and all her friends so well but then he had heard the buzz around him and Khushi! In one of the recent event’s red carpet when Karan stopped for pictures and press, out of nowhere a press reporter had asked Karan if he and Khushi were dating. Karan laughed it off immediately and had specified she is just a great friend! But Arnav knew how industry deciphers “Just Friends” tag…

“Arnavji, I wanted to talk to you…” Khushi walked in with his coffee and a snack…

“Yeah Khushi, tell me” Arnav sipped his coffee and felt rejuvenated sitting next to Khushi on poolside…

“Arnavji, I have been offered another adverti****t assignment. It will take one week only at the max. Can I do it?” She asked him politely…

“Khushi, it’s your choice. I will always be with you, you know that right?” By the way I watched all your ads, I must say you nailed them all… You looked amazing!” He openly praised her…

“Thank you so much Arnavji…” She hugged him as usual…

“Tomorrow we have the product launch in South-X mall. Company has invited me as the product face and we all are going… Will you be able to come or are you going to be busy?” Khushi asked him politely…

Arnav could read her face easily… She wanted him to be part of her world, success though he had denied her always… He did take her few parties but that’s about it… Things must change, he thought…

“Oh sure Khushi, I have couple of meetings but I will have them rescheduled and will come there directly… Will it work?” He asked her genuinely.

“Will you come? I mean thank you so much Arnavji…” She was really happy and excited and hugged him back again.

The product launch was set in the middle of the mall with a stage and press was present… Stage was set for Khushi, Karan and product company CEO, MDs and other team members…

Initial one hour was spend in product introduction, running all ads, distributing free samples etc. Overall it was great enthusiastic atmosphere… Raizada clan managed to reach on time to have the fun and be there for Khushi…

Khushi’s eyes were searching for Arnav… Though he had messaged her he was on his way and was stuck in traffic but would reach as soon as possible…

The press started questions and answers session with them…

“Hi Khushi, you look gorgeous in red sari…” Press complimented Khushi… By then Arnav just walked in.

“Thank you so much…” Khushi replied with a smile… It was one of Arnav’s creations…

Then the session went on with so many questions on product and how Khushi and Karan became product face etc.

“So looks like you and Karan are very good friends…” One of the reporter asked…

“Yes, we are. In fact he is cousin of my best friends since childhood and so our friendship goes long. We all went to see his shoot and I ended up being part of the shoot…” Khushi replied casually without understanding the inner meaning of just friends…

“So you guys are really just friends or something cooking up… You both look great together…” Arnav tightened his fist to control his anger…

There was an awkward silence for few seconds and Karan thought to answer looking at frozen Khushi. But Khushi gestured him to wait.

Arnav was about to walk away when he heard Khushi addressing the question.

“For me personally, a friend is just a friend… By the way, for those who don’t know me or rather I am new in this field so you might not know me at all… I am already married. I might look great on screen with Karan but that is not real… I look the best, only with my husband because we are a real couple… You really need to see us together…” Khushi replied confidently without any hesitation.

Raizadas including Arnav loved her answer… Arnav suddenly felt relaxed… Khushi sure knew how to make him feel special… And he needed to do it for her too, he made a mental note…

Arnav just decided to stay back, listen and let Khushi enjoy her moment… He quickly went and sat next to his Di without grabbing any attention… He asked his personal security team to disperse but be around his family…

“Wow, how cute?” Reporters added…

Just then the Company CEO saw Arnav. He was shocked and surprised to see ASR sitting in the crowd and he suddenly got worried. How did ASR get invitation for his event and then no one told him and instead of sitting with them on stage, ASR is sitting in the crowd that too without complaining!

The CEO called his assistant looking at ASR and pointing towards him. Even media got aware that ASR is in the crowd… And obviously there was a big chaos… They could see all Raizadas in the crowd and immediately the security team moved in to keep family safe yet enjoy the event…

“ASR, what brings you to this event? How come you are sitting in the crowd and not on the stage inaugurating or addressing the event?” The event manager and CEO felt embarrassed. Before they could get ASR on stage, press already saw ASR in the crowd and started bombarding him with questions…

Khushi saw him then and could not help but smile… Her Laad Governor always garners attention and why not? He is the most handsome and the best, she thought… She had not realized what media circus he usually creates wherever he goes but she was surprised and glad to see him there… Just the thought that he was there for her made her float on clouds…

“When did you come ASR? It’s a pleasant surprise for us… Why don’t you join us on the stage?” The CEO stepped down, welcomed ASR and walked him over to the stage… Arnav went ahead and side hugged Karan and smirked at Khushi… She was all red realizing he heard her answer…

“I did not mean to grab all the attention towards me and that was the sole reason I wanted to enjoy the event sitting with my family… While Khushi and Karan enjoy their event…” He spoke casually…

Still media and even baby product company team were clueless what bring such a busy tycoon to their event without any invitation…

“But ASR…” The CEO was hesitant to admit they did not invite him but then there was no real reason to invite him also… Neither he was investing nor did he have a kid to use their product and moreover he is a super busy man!

Karan and Khushi looked at each other and bursted out laughing… Arnav was awkward but he also joined them laughing…

Karan took the stage and Arnav went back to Karan’s seat next to Khushi and hugged her tight!

“Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce Khushi again… Khushi is face of the product but she has an additional identity also… She is Mrs. Khushi Gupta Kumari Gupta Singh Raizada… Wife of your favorite ASR, The mighty Arnav Singh Raizada…” Suddenly a big gasp and an awkward silence… But then family members got up and clapped for Arnav and Khushi and so did the crowd…

The CEO and MDs felt sweaty with the revelation… Did they treat Khushi well throughout the ad campaign and during events? Did they pay her well? They had too many questions in their mind… After all no one would want to be in bad books with ASR and earn his wrath!

“We did not know Khushi is your wife, we are extremely sorry for our lack of knowledge and if she has to face any difficulties during the campaign…” The CEO politely whispered in Arnav’s ears…

“No worries, she wanted to do this… And by the way I did have my legal team check the ad contract and product validity so you are all good… It’s obvious considering my wife is involved” Arnav whispered back…

Khushi heard that and was shocked… Arnav smirked looking at her…

“Laad Governor…” She muttered under her breath but he heard that… She was somewhere glad to know he cares about her choices and her safety…

“Calm down people… It’s just that my darling wife was trying something on her own and I wanted her to enjoy her own success without being over shadowed by mine… And create her own identity… As a vivacious, beautiful and talented young woman that she is…” Arnav was so proud of Khushi and it reflected in his reply… He side hugged her and people gasped…

“Indeed what she said is right! She makes the best pair with you ASR… Can you both please pose for couple of clicks?” Media requested them and they both gladly obliged.

But before media started hounding them with more questions further, he quickly wrapped up, grabbed Khushi’s hand and walked out after bidding goodbye to everyone…

Chapter 13 – Happily Ever After! (By Swatideep) (Thanked: 80 times)

Here comes the Last Chapter... Enjoy and thanks for all the likes and comments! 

I really thrive on those... 

Soon I will come up with another new story.... Please keep supporting Master Chef as well... 


Chapter 13 – Happily Ever After!

“Arnavji, what is this? Where are we going?” Khushi asked him…

“You will know…” He answered and started driving… He had already informed his Di about his plans…

“Oh, farm house…” Khushi realized the route…

“Yes wifee, now that we need to spend more and more quality time together so we will be at the farm house for 2 days… I will work from the farm house tomorrow…” Arnav replied and suddenly Khushi’s face fell when he mentioned they should spend time together… Whose fault was it not to do it before? All his… She decided to give him hard time…

“Your schedule may not work for me Arnavji… I have a test tomorrow and another event to attend on Sunday evening” She replied arrogantly… It was high time he stop bullying her like that and take her for granted as usual…

Arnav was angry at her answer… But he quickly realized, again he was inconsiderate and cannot take her for granted. The immediate resentment surfaced on her beautiful face, indicated grievances of old standing!

“Sorry Khushi, I did not mean it that way… At least can we have dinner tonight at farmhouse and come back early morning? Please?” He requested her politely and she was surprised with sudden change in his behavior…

“It’s ok Khushi, let me call and ask Ramu uncle to stop the preparations and we will go some other time when you are free… I will ask you in advance… ok?” Arnav was upset but he would learn to adjust for his love of life…

“It’s ok Arnavji, let’s go to farm house tonight and come back tomorrow morning… I have a test tomorrow which I don’t want to finish off. The test is in the afternoon so I will have time to revise in the morning…” Khushi also replied politely…

“No problem… let’s go” He was happy, she at least agreed…

The whole farm house was cleaned and decorated with candle lights that Khushi loves… The dinner arrangements were made on the terrace along with canopy under the sky light with bed and the night looked beautiful with full moon…

“What’s special? Are we celebrating something?” Khushi asked him curiously… Everything was just perfect, the decorations and food, all her favorite and plus so romantic…

“Too many things… Your ad success, you going to college and us still being together even after the blunders I do…” Arnav replied apologetically…

“What?” Khushi looked at him not getting his point…

“Yes, we are celebrating our togetherness Khushi… In spite of my horrible mistakes, you are still here with me… Even though I don’t deserve you, you are here with me, it’s a great reason to celebrate… Don’t you think?” He was sarcastic at himself…

“Hum toh sirf aaphi ke hai (I am always yours and only yours)… And I am always there for you, but you are not…” She said angrily…

“What the?” He couldn’t help but say…

“It is true… Hum toh sirf aaphi ke hai (I am always yours and only yours)… But you are not… You always find reasons to ignore me and go away from me… Be it your mistrust, misunderstanding, anger, miseries or self-loathing… Everything leads to only one thing… You walking away from me and ignoring me… Then come back as per your wish and expect me to accept you with open arms without any emotions… How long will this go on Arnavji? Do you always want to learn the hard way by hurting me? It’s beyond tiring by now, you know” Khushi had decided not to give in easily but it was getting exhausting for her…

“I am yours’ too Khushi… I have never loved anyone before you nor will ever love anyone else… It’s going to be only you… Always you… I love you like crazy, you know that… It’s my anger and trust issues that makes me lose logic or see through things clearly… But I will work on it… And remember, it’s you or no one… It’s you in my life or else I would die without you… I will not be able to live without you… Thank you for tolerating me Khushi and not leaving me…” Arnav could not help but cry for his ignorance towards her and what he put her through by sitting for hours with that witch Sheetal and her son and making Khushi insecure and lonely… Khushi had to hear that vile woman claiming him to be father of their son…

What the hell was he thinking? Obviously, he wasn’t!

“Arnavji…” Even Khushi felt her tears flowing freely… They both made mistakes… She too invited Sheetal to stay with them not knowing her well…

“Arnavji, the funny thing is you seem to have trust issues only with me, you trusted Shyam and Sheetal very easily… And you seem to save the honor for every family member and even friends except me and my jiji… I saw your reaction when you saw Di helping Sheetal but you were ok with Sheetal and her son treating us as servants… Have I ever given you any reason not to trust me or is our honor, respect any less than your family members? What will it take for us to be real family members? Or is it still your prejudice that I have to live with?” Khushi smiled through her pain and tears.

And truth is there is nothing funny in what she said… Arnav’s heart shattered with her question… She was so right… He hugged her tight and then kissed her whole face through her tears…

“I have a confession to make… I did not even want to apologize this time… Because I know, somehow you will still have the heart to forgive me… And I may end up doing some or the other blunder knowing you will forgive me… I don’t want to go that route anymore… I will make it up to you Khushi!” Arnav pulled her chair and made her sit still holding her hands in his…

“Even I have a confession to make. I did do the DNA test that too from three different laboratories…” Khushi dropped the bomb…

Arnav was clueless… He decided to hear her out…

“When you decided against using your own common sense and rational thinking and were busy ignoring me, I could see Sheetal has plans to use the manipulated DNA report she got against you and our family. It could have even maligned your image further in society… So I just decided to get the DNA tests done from different labs and keep them handy…” She pulled out three closed envelopes from her hand bag and handed him…

“Why didn’t you open them?” Arnav was surprised. He is so proud that his small town wife is way smarter than his Harvard brain… And she truly loved him and cared immensely to protect him and his family while he was on an ego trip…

“What is the need? I always trusted you so it was not for me. We would have used it just in case we needed it against Sheetal… I knew you would hire private detective so…” Khushi told him the details asking him to open the results. Obviously they were all negative. Even Sheetal was not Aarav’s mom…

The truth was too harsh for him to digest… So he never learned his lesson from Shyam fiasco nor did he learn to trust his own wife…

“Not any more Khushi… I promise you again and again, this will not happen ever again… I will never mistrust you and will never give anyone else priority over you my love… Not even Di or Nani or any other family members. They all have important place in my life but you are my better half and my highest priority… I will never make you feel lonely… I am so sorry once again…” Arnav kissed her deep and took her towards dinner table…  

Arnav fed her dinner between million apologies… He set some strong rules for himself when it comes to any other women at work or his ex’.

It was a long night with lots of rules and promises for each other and Arnav assured her fragile heart again with full of love and passion for whole night…

“Good morning love…” Arnav was awake and he woke up Khushi…

“Arnav, let me sleep…” Khushi was still deep slumber…

“You have the exam baby… Don’t you want to go to college?” Arnav asked her…

“Not really, I rescheduled it online to do it on Tuesday… Now let me sleep…” Khushi hid herself in the blanket realizing she wasn’t wearing anything…

“Oh, in that case let’s enjoy the lovely morning inside… And you know how I get turn on when you call me Arnav every morning pretending to be in sleep… It’s high time you call me Arnav all the time” He picked her wrapped in blanket as it was getting too sunny and took her to their bedroom… And it ended up in another romantic early morning make out session…

“So are we staying back until Sunday?” Arnav asked Khushi…

“Yes, you can directly drop me to the event late Sunday evening… It’s at 6 pm for an hour or so…” Khushi replied…

“Baby, one more thing… When will your exams get over? I have plans for us… I have Europe trip coming in about a month so I was thinking we should take 2 weeks’ vacation and go around Europe…” Arnav informed her…

“What, Europe trip? Wow, it’s so exciting… But I don’t even have a passport…” Khushi suddenly realized…

“Who says my wife does not have passport…? Your passport and visa is all done… Just let me know if you want to go before or after my event… After would be better but let’s see your schedule…” Arnav was ready to adjust and align dates of travel with his wife’s schedule…

“Let’s go after then… I can finish all my courses for this trimester in 3 weeks and finish tests online. Then we both can be relaxed…” Khushi agreed…

“Europe it is… It’s our honeymoon trip. So I would rather have you completely relaxed and ready for loads of love and fun…” He winked at her and smirked…

“Oh” She realized he was taking her for honeymoon at last and she blushed furiously…

“You look so ****y when you blush like that and turn all red… I feel like eating you up…” With that he pulled her in his arms for another love making session!

“And Khushi, you look adorable, hot and ****y mom with small babies… Let’s make some of our own… Oh god, you would be a hell crazy and hot mom…” Arnav teased her more…

“Stop it Arnav, babies not so soon… And look, Laad Governor who hates babies is talking about producing his own…” Khushi was surprised he openly expressed his wish to have a baby…

“Yeah, you are too young… Maybe we can wait. But I do want babies Khushi, with you… Our babies…” He kissed her deep pouring his love for her…

They again got hurdles in their life and again managed to come over it… Khushi is happy he has started expressing his feelings, understand her feelings and consider her equal rights… He is so ready to work towards their marriage and he is the best she could ever get! Well almost the best san his anger!

Phew, and he always thought he was not cut out for marriage… Khushi laughed at her own thoughts…

“Why are you laughing?” Arnav asked her raising his eye brow…

“It’s funny to hear all this from a person who did not believe in love, commitments and marriage…” She admitted genuinely.

“I agree. It was all before you came into my life and I fell in love… Love for you, it is Khushi… It sounds weird but I am looking forward to our married life, our own kids, growing old with you… And with you, it will always be unpredictable and fun… Because you are crazy and I am crazy for you…” He laughed…

“I am crazy for you too” Khushi hugged him and pulled him into a kiss…
