His Possessive Lover..
His Possesive Lover.. (By Roja_Arshi) (Thanked: 92 times)
A white Audi came to screech in front of a lavish office building, a girl of her early 20s came down from driver seat, throwing the car key on face of gatekeeper, she roughly said- Park the car!!
Gate keeper nodded his head weakly seeing her tantrum again and again. That girl came and stood in front of receptionist girl- Where the hell is Arnav Singh Raizada??
Receptionist girl looked up from her desktop screen, there was standing Khushi Gupta, once again in carrying her fury personality. Daughter of Sashi Gupta and fiancé of Arnav Singh Raizada. Two famous personalities of city as well as co-owner of this Fortune Enterprise Pvt.Ltd. If for one Khushi Gupta is his soul, for another man she is his life!! Two men never leave any chance to pamper this spoilt princess of their life!!
Even before she could place her demand in front of either of these two men, her demands were fulfilled before.
Receptionist came back to earth hearing a loud smack on her desk, she jerked up. Khushi Gupta once again smacked hard on desk making her shut her eyes fearfully- You are not paid here for staring at persons, Are you?? (Receptionist looked down)
Receptionist- Sorry Ma’am..
Khushi mocked- As if I give a damn to your sorry.. Just tell me where is Arnav??
A gentle voice from behind made both girls turned her head, There was standing Sashi Gupta staring at his daughter!! When will she grow up and learn how to speak?? He sighed hard. Khushi threw one glance towards receptionist girl before crossing that small distance between her and her father!!
Sashi asked- What happened Khushi??
He asked in a soothing voice, because he knew another trait of his beloved daughter, not at any cost she will ever take anyone’s loud voice on her!!
Khushi asked directly not beating around bush- Kahan hai aap ka the most punctual Arnav Singh Raizada?
Sashi could not help but chuckled hearing her, she was sounding like a 5 year old stubborn kid, who is too adamant to know where is her mother!!
She again continued- Do you even know, I have been waiting in that café for more than 45 minutes for him?? And he??
Sashi tried to calm her down- Khushi.. It’s just 45 minutes..
Khushi spoke pushing away his hand that was trying to hold her shoulder- It’s not just 45 minutes…It’s 45 minutes of Khushi Gupta’s life!! Meri life ki.. And I don’t give anyone the chance to waste a minute in MY LIFE!!
Her words made him flinch once again, She is too tough sometime!!
Sashi still tried to calm her down- You first calm down Khushi.. Staffs are watching you.
Khushi- And you think I have come here to entertain your staffs Papa?? Mujhe Arnav se milna hai, NOW!!
Before Sashi Gupta could say anything, a husky voice from behind came, “Is this discussion going on me??”
Sashi Gupta looked at that direction hearing the voice while Khushi stopped but did not turn!! He sighed in relief once again eyeing towards Khushi, Arnav Singh Raizada smilingly nodded his head mouthing him to Relax. Sashi Gupta touched his daughter’s cheek lovingly before leaving because he knew it’s not too long to see her compose as her medicine to relax her angry nerves has arrived!!
While leaving, he patted Arnav shoulder, Arnav- I’ll see her, don’t worry!!
Sashi nodded his head, he has that immense trust on him!! And that trust on Arnav, made him agree to this proposal when one evening Khushi came to him and said,
“Papa, I like Arnav, we both like each other and want to get married!!”
She placed her words on this topic in front of him, on which most of the girls hesitate to speak so openly with their father specially!! He looked at her surprisingly once but she was staring at him, waiting to hear his response.
Sashi asked though he knew he had not had a single reason to say NO- What if I say No??
Her reply was more firm- Then you will lose the chance to see your daughter as bride!! I heard it’s every father’s special dream..
Arnav covered the distance between him and her taking his long strides. Standing behind her, he tried to touch her forearm to make her turn, but she shoved his arm off from her body maintaining that straight face.
Arnav- If you will not hear me , how will you come to know what made me late Khushi??
He asked her trying to put some sense in her stubborn mind, Khushi replied- I don’t want to know, I just know one thing I waited for you there for….
He ended- For 45 MINUTES!! (he stressed on each words)
She turned on her heel, looked into his caramel like eyes those always carry warmth in them. He was staring at her, his eyes were reflecting each feeling he has in his heart for this girl who was standing in front of him!! The love of his life, whom he wants to treasure till his last breath!!
But their brief eyelock broke as they heard ring on hi mobile. Arnav took his phone out from his pocket to see the caller but before that the phone was snatched from his grip.
Khushi answered the call reading the name on display screen quickly that was showing, “Mrs.Raizada..”
Khushi- Good Afternoon Mrs.Raizada..
Mrs.Nupur Singh Raizada flinched hearing the voice whom she never wishes to hear.
Nupur- What are you doing with his phone??
Arnav tried to stop Khushi knowing another heated conversation would follow soon between these two women- Khushi, phone wapas karo!!
She held his hand away from him- Let me talk..to my future mother in law.
Nupur grit her teeth hearing her words- Don’t fly high Miss.Gupta. We both are not definitely sharing such kind of relation ever..
Khushi laughed- Sorry to say, but I think Arnav forgot to give you our engagement card. But not to worry, I’m specially inviting you.
Nupur- Khushi, stop your nonsense and give this phone back to Arnav..
Khushi- I waited for him for 45 minutes, now its your turn to wait 90 minutes.
She did not wait to hear more, thrusting his phone in his pocket, she dragged him- Your next 90 minutes are mine.
Her voice was dominant, possessive, obsessive!!
And this is the story of Arnav Singh Raizada and his possessive lover!!
Hello guys, how are you all?? This is new story, do read and tell me how is it? Both positive and negative replies are accepted warmly. Am waiting.
His Possessive Lover.. (By Roja_Arshi) (Thanked: 81 times)
She did not leave his hand till the parking lot even for a mere second, the thing she wants is her!! When they reached near her car, Arnav said- Now leave my hand, I’m not running away.
She turned to face- I’m not holding this hand to leave it.
Arnav smiled hearing her, taking one step closer he whispered- Do you know how scary you are sounding right now??
She raised her brow- Really?? (moving one inch closer to him) Dar lag raha hai aap ko??
Arnav replied- Nehi, Jab se pyar hua hai, aag se khelne ki adat ho chuki hai.
She tried her best not to be affected hearing his words, looking away from his face. Now it was his turn to play with her, Arnav- But why am I feeling right now that you are scared??
Khushi- Excuse me.. Khushi Gupta and scaring!! Two parallel side of train. These two things can never come together!!
Pushing her a little against her car, he asked- Then Why Khushi Gupta is stealing her eyes??
She acted like bravery and looked into his eyes, but could not hold that control on his body, mind, emotions for long, What magic does he have in his eyes that makes her feel weak?? His eyes were doing wonder on her sensory senses.
Arnav tucked her hair strands behind her ear and said softly- Something urgent came up suddenly Khushi, that’s why I could not reach there in time!!
He carefully avoided that topic on which they were discussing a few seconds before, because if he knows this girl standing in front of even a little bit, he knows the more she was trying to hard it show on her face that much weak she is when it comes to show her feelings for those persons who are even on top of her priority lists.
She can’t show her emotions through words, but by her gesture that’s too hard to read behind that dominant nature of her!!
There was another reason for him to tell him why he did not reach there on time..Even if she does not ask the reason, he can’t keep anything hidden away from her. That’s what he feels to be there in every relationship..A transparent communication and trust!.
It’s been half an hour, they were sitting in that same café even on same place. She has finished her 3rd coffee. Arnav asked- Are we just sitting like this??
Khushi- My 90 minutes, my wish.
Just then they heard a call from behind, “Khushi!!”
Khushi turned, her eyes fell on two girls of her college. They both came near them, two girls greeted her and Arnav smilingly. Arnav reciprocated back while Khushi remained unaffected.
Girl 1- Why did not you come today Khushi?? Do you know, this is the last date of form fill up of this sem??
Girl2- You might be in trouble..
Arnav looked at Khushi worryingly- You did not go for form fill-up Khushi??
Khushi replied- Today is the last date of form fill-up without fees, I have whole 5 days in my hand for it.
Those girls did not speak further, because they knew if they do, something hurtful will come from her mouth which might hurt their hearts!! After all Khushi Gupta is a rich princess..
After they left, Arnav turned to Khushi- This is wrong Khushi. Everything is not about having money, something is about TIME!! You were angry when I did not reach here in time, and you are doing same??
Khushi asked angrily hearing him, though he was trying all his efforts not to sound rude.
Khushi- Now you will scold me for this not-so-important matter??
Arnav shook his head, held her hand on table- I’m not scolding you, I’m just telling because I care for you!!
She pulled her hand away from his grip- I don’t want to know. If you had really loved me, you would have supported me when those two girls said that. but you did not!!
He again held her hand but this time a little tightly- So, you are measuring how much I love you by this??
Khushi- Then why did not you reply back them??
Arnav- You will not understand that now, when time will come you will not ask this question.
She sighed, some time he sounds really difficult to understand!!
It was night, Arnav was working on his laptop sitting on bed, when the phone rang. He glanced at that, it was displaying “Mrs.Raizada”.
He answered the call- Hello.
Nupur Singh Raizada- Where are you now Arnav??
Arnav- You called me for this??
Nupur- Your dadi wants to know by the way, but thank to Khushi Gupta.. for whom..
Arnav cut her in middle- I’m not hearing anything against her either.
Nupur Singh Raizada fumed hearing the reply from her Step-Son Arnav Singh Raizada!
Arnav- Give the phone to dadi.
Arnav Singh Raizada was staying separately from his family who were staying just 20 minutes away from his flat! Nupur Singh Raizada is his aunt, his late mother’s sister whom his father married after his mother passed away thinking she might fill the place in his and his sister Anjali Jha’s life!! But he was wrong..
Nupur Singh Raizada cares for two things in this world, one is Raizada property and second one is her son Nikhil Singh Raizada.
He has shifted to his new address 3 years back, when he finds staying there will do nothing but give rise unwanted twisted relationship and useless negative emotions!! It’s better to stay away, than giving mental pressure seeing Nupur Singh Raizada in his mother’s place in each passing second!!
But that does not mean he will cut every relation from there, but for him Nupur Singh Raizada can never be more than his father Akhilesh Singh Raizada’s second wife.
After having few minutes conversation with hid dadi he hanged up the call, his eyes travelled that direction where their family pic was hanging with his mother, father,dadi, Di and his!!
Sashi Gupta was in his bedroom, shuffling his cupboard searching for something. A knock on door made him turn, he glanced once at Khushi – Khushi.. come in.
Khushi stepped inside, she silently watched her father. Khushi- Looking for something Papa??
Sashi stopped as something hit his mind, he took out some random file saying- Yeah, this one.
Khushi knew what her father has been hiding from her.
Sashi Gupta sat on recliner trying to read the file when heard something breaking into pieces. He quickly looked up- Khushi!!
There was she standing, looking down at the broken frame of a photo. Sashi Gupta stood up, he came near her, touching her shoulder gently. She looked up at him, like her, her arrogant tear did not fall from her eyes, Khushi- I hate her.. I hate this woman Papa.
Sashi felt lump in his throat hearing his daughter declaring her hatred for her mother, Garima!!
Hey guys, how is it? Thank you so much for liking the first part

His Possessive Lover.. (By Roja_Arshi) (Thanked: 61 times)
“Khushi stop..Khushi stop right there I said..” Sashi Gupta was screaming at his daughter who was leaving the house at this hour in night and that too locking him in his bedroom.
He was helpless, seeing his daughter leaving and he was just standing right there with tied hands. Khushi turned to him standing at door- You broke my trust again Papa..
Sashi- (trying to convince her) Just don’t go Khushi.
Khushi (screaming in equal speech)- Why should I listen to you?? After today onwards, there will not be anyone here to stop you from remembering that woman?? I’m going..
With a loud thud, the door was closed behind her!! Sashi’s each call did not reach fall in her ear. Sashi tried to find his mobile phone to call someone, but he could not find any single communication tool starting from his cordless phone to his cell. He sat on bed with thud just like a imprison parrot in its caze helplessly!!!
Continuous knock on door, made Arnav to open his eyes. He found himself sitting on his recliner while his laptop was laying on his lap. Rubbing his eyes he sat straight when again another knock came, his eyes automatically travelled to digital clock on table beside his bed. It was quite late!! Who might be at this time??
Quickly slipping into his pair of slipper, he rushed down to open the door, there was standing Khushi in all her fuming glory with a luggage in her hand, wearing her night suit!!
Before he could even ask anything, he was pushed back. Pulling her luggage along with her, Khushi came inside and sat on sofa throwing her bag away. Nothing made sense for him after seeing her like this. He quickly spared one look at parking lot from his balcony, there he could not find her car!! How did she reach then??
Locking the door, he rushed towards Khushi taking his long strides. Khushi was gulping down the glass of water like a thirsty bird of years.. She was sweating profusely!! Arnav quickly switched on AC seeing her state.
He got up from there knowing right now it would be useless to ask her anything as she was never going to answer him back anything. Moving away from there, he dialed Sashi uncle’s phone but none picked up!! Now that again made him worried, Will he be fine?? How did he let Khushi leave at night?? All these thoughts were making him worried, he quickly dialed the care taker’s number who answered immediately seeing Arnav’s name.
Arnav- Can you give this phone to Sashi uncle?? He is not answering my calls.. It’s kind of urgent.
Care taker was staying in a quarter little away from the mansion, he quickly reached there, unlocking the door using extra key he called out Sashi’s name!! Sashi who was in room, heard him calling.
Sashi (banging on bedroom door)- Raghab..Raghab, I’m here.. Open this door!!
Caretaker rushed upstairs, opening the door he handed over his phone to Sashi saying- Sirji, Arnav sir is on line.. He was sounding tensed!!
Sashi grabbed the phone- Arnav.. Arnav.. I don’t know where did Khushi leave at this hour?? I was locked, I am not getting what to do?? Where must be Khushi?? how will be she?? I’m scared.. This girl will oneday show me hell, I swear!!
He spoke everything in one breath.
Arnav- Uncle.. First calm down. Khushi is here, in my flat!! She is just more than fine!!
Sashi- She is there!!! Let me reach there, then I’ll talk to her..
Arnav tried to stop Sashi knowing, this will once again make the situation worse!!
Arnav- Uncle, Don’t come right now, I’m here with her!!
By then the caretaker also reached there with a glass of water- sirji, drink some water..
Sashi pushed his hand away- Are you even realizing the situation Raghab?? Khushi is not here and you are asking me to drink water!! Have you lost your mind??( he spit out angrily)
Raghab looked down, Arnav was hearing everything- First drink water Uncle, then we will talk!!
Sashi tried to argue- Arnav.. You..
Arnav- Uncle!!! Khushi ke liye..
Now this was something that for which Sashi Gupta can never deny..His life lies in his only daughter, whom he loves the most. He can’t stop caring for her even if she hurts him!!
After few seconds, Arnav asked- what had happened uncle??
Sashi narrated everything to him, he listened everything patiently!!
Arnav placed a bowl of noodles and a glass of cola in front of Khushi who was sitting on sofa crossing her legs, watching TV.
Khushi- I don’t want to eat.
Arnav shook his head, sat beside her- Tell me onething honestly Khushi, from where do you get so much anger?? Is there any secret between this?? (he asked raising his brows)
Khushi rolled her eyes- Papa told you I have not had anything in my dinner!!
Arnav- Papa!! I meant to say you remember him till now?? I thought your anger must have wiped that name from your mind..
Khushi looked away- I’m angry with him does not mean I will ever forget him!! He is my Papa..(again her voice turned possessive)
Arnav smiled a little, pulling her close holding her hand who was reluctant first but later went close- Do you really think whatever you did is right Khushi??
She tried to argue- But he..
Arnav- Shhh..(pressing her hand gently) Yes or No?? that’s it..
She looked away from his face first, but within a brief of second she lunched herself in his arms burying her face in his neck- No..
Arnav asked wrapping his arm around her waist- Then why do you do this?? Does not uncle love you much?? Do you doubt him??
She questioned- I know he loves me.. and I know this also that he loves that woman Arnav.. He still loves that woman…who..
But Arnav stopped her not letting her to utter any inappropriate word for the person who carries the position of her mother in her life, even if she never admits that!!
Arnav- Promise me Khushi, You will never repeat this again.
She pulled back from his embrace- What if Papa…
Arnav- If you ever do this, then remember that day you will lose me too!! (her eyes got widen) So you have whole night to decide.. who is more dearer to you, your anger or hatred towards your mother or my feelings for you!!
Her eyes were moist, she pushed him away hearing him uttering these words- Fine.. Leave me like everyone..
She got up, grabbed her luggage and was about to leave his house, when heard, “ Where are you thinking you are going at this hour??”
She turned back to him- I can go any where, why do you care?? Even if I get hurt also, you will never care, even if I die also, you will never care!! You are also selfish like..
But he was just hearing her silently. It’s better to burst out anger than suppressing within. When she will feel sort of words to present her anger, she will automatically calm down!!
Arnav- Ho gaya??
Arnav- Yeah I know, that’s my name. You come here and eat something unless you will not get enough energy while searching some shelter for you at this hour of night!! Right??
Her mouth left opened- How could you??
Arnav- Me?? Why??
She sighed hard, turned away her face from him!!
None understands her!! Is she that complex to understand?? All are same, selfish, self-centered!! Even her Arnav also!! Her heart ached thinking this.
Arnav got up, held her hand and dragged her to sofa gently. Making her sit, he raised the fork near her mouth but she looked away.
Arnav- And this shows what I mean to you!!
Arnav- That you can also neglect me like any random person on street whom you meet..
This time she did not argued!! He should be reminded once again regarding his position in her life!!
She herself held his hand and made him feed her.
Even if Arnav tries also, he can’t be upset with this girl god knows why?? Even if she irritates him, does nonsense work, behaves rudely, does listen to him, get angry without any reason!! He feels no feeling for her except immense love!! Just like how much heart loves its beat!!
He pulled the blanket on her- Close your eyes and just sleep, forgetting everything!!
She did not reply back, Arnav was about to get up, but was pulled back as Khushi was still holding his hand- where are you going??
Arnav eyed to recliner- I’ll be there. I’m not going anywhere.. You sleep!! Ok??
He planted a soft kiss on back of her palm, she blinked her eyes!!
He knows, she fights with him, argues with him endlessly, but at the end he also knows this she simply can’t stay without him!! She hardly..hardly declares her feelings for him..But Arnav knows to what extent she loves him behind this mask of her!!
Hey guys, how is it? Thank you to everyone for your supports. That means a lot and

His Possessive Lover.. (By Roja_Arshi) (Thanked: 61 times)
Morning sun light falling through the gap of curtain made her blink her eyes lazily. She opened her eyes lazily, the first thing that her eyes did, scanning the place?? Then only she remembered last night she had come to Arnav’s flat after fighting with her Papa!! She frowned sadly as she remembered the last night conversation with her Papa.. Sighing deeply she tossed on bed, clock was showing 8 am which means Arnav must have woke up earlier, he is a early riser unlike her!!
She and Arnav!! Are not they too different from each other?? She never understand how can Arnav be always calm and composed like this even in worst situation?? Her eyes travelled to his photoframe on table, her fingers caressed his image gently as if her fingers were touching him instead of his picture.
Pushing the blanket away, she got down from bed. Tying her hair loosely in a bun, she was descending the stairs when heard Arnav and HP kaka talking in kitchen!! She went there, HP smiled seeing Khushi- Good morning bitiya..
Khushi gave a half smile, then turned to Arnav who was busy in preparing toasts for them for breakfast. Hp excused himself from there.
Arnav Singh Raizada likes to do all his work himself, Everyone should do their own work, that’s his principle!! He never likes depending on others even if for any small task!! He cooks his food, cleans his room, washes his clothes, and buys his own things!! HP comes in every morning as per the command by Arnav’s dadi, Devyani Singh Raizada. For a grandmother her grand child is always a kid for her no matter how old he grows!!
Khushi opened fridge and took out a cold chilled water bottle, she was about to gulp down the water but heard Arnav- Khushi!! (But his eyes were still on toaster)
Khushi rolled her eyes- What??
She knows why he stopped her.
Arnav looked up at her, eyeing towards the chilled water bottle. Arnav- Drink normal water.
He was about to snatch that away, Khushi moved back- No..
Arnav groaned- Khushi!! Don’t be stubborn in this case. You catch cold next day when ever you drink this water.
Khushi- a little will not be hampered!!
Arnav knew how to trick her very well, he resumed his work- Fine!! Tum meri sunti kahan ho??
She rolled her eyes, he knows what works on her. She placed the bottle back, poured some normal water from purifier. After some time something stuck in her mind, but she did not get how to ask Arnav?? What will he say?? But she needs that!! She needs 20,000 for her form fill-up for this semester as she has forgotten her wallet, her credit cards everything at her home in anger. She just packed god knows what in luggage and left wearing her night suit.
Arnav asked filling two plates- You still have not told me how did you reach here last night??
Khushi- By my feet.
Arnav was surprised hearing her, but did not let that show on his face- Good!! Tumahra evening walk ho gaya..
Khushi’s mouth left opened.. She was expecting him to get angry?? To ask how could she just come here from her house like this and that all alone in middle of night?? Why did not she take her car or any cab?? But he preferred not to ask such things but commented she did well!!
Khushi- So you are not affected??
Arnav moved his face- For which??
Khushi- How did I reach here all alone??
Arnav replied- I guess no.. I think you know your safety zone?? Don’t you?? (He added)
She pressed her lips looking away. Arnav pulled her holding her hand towards dining table, making her sit, he took his place.
Arnav-Umm..Eat Khushi.(he spoke seeing her looking at him) Have not you seen me before??
She started her food.
After breakfast, both were ready, one for her college other one for his office. Khushi was sitting beside Arnav who was driving the car. His look was straight unlike her. She was continuously staring at him as they were nearing the college.
She needs money but her ego never lets her do that to ask Arnav!! She is not even going to call her Papa, she is still angry with him!!
Car stopped at college gate, Khushi was about to get down but Arnav stopped her holding her wrist. She looked at him confusingly, Arnav asked while taking out something- Don’t leave before calling me in afternoon.
Khushi- Why?? I’m not a kid.. I can take care..
But was stopped when he placed his few credit cards on her palm. She looked up at him surprisingly!! How did he know??
Arnav- I need to keep an eye on you Miss.Khushi Gupta..
She looked at him angrily- Why?? Am I a criminal??
Arnav- Actually I don’t care what you are doing, But mujhe meri Khushi ke liye koi bhi muskil nehi chahiye.. (Brushing his finger on her nose tip) Let me remind you again, You better take care of her!! Aur use samjha dena, next time not to dare to show her bravery at night specially.
She looked down feeling guilty. Arnav held her by her shoulder- You will never repeat it again Khushi.. If you next time get furious and wants to leave home, then give me a call than giving me and Sashi uncle any heart attack. Ok??
She nodded her head. Arnav smiled- That’s my girl.. And don’t worry, you can throw your anger on me to calm yourself down.
Her lips broke into a little smile!! The only person who can make her smile!!
Arnav’s mobile rang, Khushi’s eyes fell on his phone laying on dashboard. It was showing “Dad”. Arnav sighed hard seeing the id, rejecting the call he threw his phone on dashboard again.
Her eyes travelled on his face, tighten jaw line, that intense look in his eyes!! But she did not know how to support him like he supports her always!! She is too weak when it comes for giving emotional support to someone. But she knows one thing, she can never tolerate anyone who ever try to hurt him!! No matter what relation he/she carries in Arnav’s life.

His Possessive Lover.. (By Roja_Arshi) (Thanked: 79 times)
Arnav was working in his cabin, when Sashi entered. He looked up at Sashi and greeted him happily.
Arnav- Good morning uncle..
Sashi- Arnav, first tell how is Khushi??
Arnav got up from his chair, came to Sashi. Holding his hand, he made him sit one chair and took his place on other one- She is good Uncle, just a little bit low. But that’s not any major issue, don’t you know her??
Sashi sighed- That was my fault, I should have been careful.
Arnav- It’s ok.. She will understand one day.
Sashi nodded his head- I hope so.. You know what, I just can’t take it when she turn her face away from me, that hurts Arnav. Beti hai wo meri..Kab samjhegi, what she means to me??
Arnav held his hand, he also does not know the answer.
Arnav- Give her time, Everything will be fine. (Sashi looked away not knowing when the time will come..) I’ll drop her at home in evening after her classes. Ok??
Sashi replied positively.
Khushi was looking around for her friend Payal Kapoor, when felt a hand on her shoulder. She quickly turned and there her eyes met with Nikhil Singh Raizada, Arnav’s half brother!!
No sooner she saw him, her jaw line tightened- What??(she asked rudely)
Nikhil smirked seeing her getting annoyed- Hello Khushiji..Oops.. I meant Bhabi..
Khushi- Look Nikhil, I really don’t want to hear your nonsense wasting my time here. Just get off from my way.
Nikhil Singh Raizada was also studying in same college where Khushi was pursing her degree, but in separate branch! She was doing her Journalism and Mass communication, Nikhil was studying Finance.
Khushi was about to walk pass, but Nikhil came to her front- Uff..Ye gussa!! You look tempting dear Bhabi.. (he said lingering his eyes on her from top to bottom.)
Before he could pass any further comment, a tight slap came across his cheek. Nikhil was stunned, his cheek was burning. Khushi slapped him and that too in college campus where all were seeing them!!
Nikhil- How dare you Khushi???(He marched towards her angrily..)
Khushi- I can dare Mr.Nikhil Singh Raizada and you know that very well.. (She spoke in same pitch of voice, pointing her finger to him.)
She did not wait longer, Nikhil held his cheek- You will regret Khushi..
The moment Khushi was about to enter her class room, a loud call from behind made her stop, she turned and found Payal running towards her.
Payal- Sorry sorry.. I was stuck in traffic.
Khushi gave her a whatever look and entered in the class, Payal asked pushing her glasses up on her nose- By the way, I heard something about you..
Khushi did not ask what, took her seat.
Payal- You slapped Nikhil?
Khushi turned her face- Yes.. You have any problem??
Payal rolled her eyes- He is by the way Arnav Jiju’s brother, you remember that..
Khushi- I don’t care.. Know what, I hate people like him.
Payal- But does that mean you will slap him?? You guys are not school going kids Khushi, neither these are suiting you.
Khushi- Does that suit him when he spoke that nonsense??
Payal- But there is a way to solve Khushi..
Khushi- For me that was the only way..
Payal shook her head, it’s useless to talk to her. Khushi Gupta is too adamant to ever accept anything in her life. She is her friend since their high school days, in all these years nothing ever change in Khushi’s life, her attitude except the entry of a man named Arnav Singh Raizada. Probably the first and last change in Khushi’s life, that she has accepted without resisting it.
Arnav was talking to their manager Aman Mathur about the new venture they are planning to start in Lucknow this year, his phone rang. He saw and it was from Nupur Singh Raizada. He answered the call inspite of his unwillingness.
Nupur- Arnav, you better talk to Khushi this time seriously, unless I’m talking to her and let me tell you I’m not going to entertain her tantrums like you..
Arnav excused from Aman, moving aside a little, he said- What happened??
Nupur- Did not she tell you what she has done today??
Arnav- If you are just going to play with words, then I am not in a mood to waste my time here.. I have better work to do.
Nupur (screamed fuming)- She slapped Nikhil, Arnav and that too in front of all.
Arnav exhaled deeply, the more he is trying to keep Khushi away from these mess, she herself is getting in all these more.
Nupur- Did she forget who is Nikhil??(her voice was spitting fire)
Nupur loved her son a little extra, her love even does not see any flaws.. For her whatever she and her son does is always right no matter what the actual situation is!!
Arnav- I will talk to her, you better stay away from her..
Nupur- Talk?? What are you going to talk to her?? She is not a kid, stop treating her like this.
He was also falling sort of words, on other hand he does not know what was the actually situation, even what Khushi did was not appropriate either!!
Arnav- I said, I will talk to her Mrs.Raizada, but by any chance your son is behind this, then let me tell you that time you will not intervene between me and Nikhil .
He hanged up the call, running his fingers through his hair.
Khushi bid bye to Payal formally, crossing the road she came to Arnav who was standing near his car.
She was about to open the door to get in, Arnav held her hand.
Arnav pulled her towards him but very gently taking into consideration they were standing in a public place, Arnav- Kya hua hai aaj?? (he asked, waiting to hear her side story.)
Khushi- So, your brother complained to his mother and she to you?? Great!!
Khushi looked away, crossing her hands across her chest- He said I look tempting.. and I slapped him.
Arnav- Is that all??
Khushi- You can check CCTV footage if you wish..there are many in college campus.
Arnav smiled hearing her- I’ll talk to Nikhil, but you will not repeat it again.
Khushi- Until he stays in his limit..(she said in matter of fact.)
Arnav nodded his head. They both got in the car, Arnav started the car, after some minutes, car stopped in front of Khushi’s home.
Arnav asked while taking out her luggage from behind- Don’t do anything stupid, talk to Uncle..patiently..( he added with a lower voice though he knew very well Khushi and patience are two opposite end.)
Khushi- I can’t promise..
Arnav- But you will try..
Arnav stood near car, Khushi gave him a side hug and started to walk towards the gate, but stopped in middle. Arnav looked at her confusingly, Khushi left her luggage and turned around. Arnav raised his brow questioningly. She came to him, taking her baby steps.
Khushi- Do I trouble you more??
His lips automatically stretched a little. Her voice was opposite to her nature, with a coating of hope and anxiety.
Arnav- Why suddenly this question??
He asked wanting to know what made her ask this unusual question that she has never asked before.
Khushi composed herself, may be she asked a bit more!! She thought to herself.
Khushi- Nothing.. it’s just..
Khushi stared at him for a second, before asking- And..
Khushi looked down at their feet, her shoes were touching his. Khushi looked back at him- And..there will be..
Arnav-(repeated) there will be…??
She gulped down, not knowing how to present her doubt in front of him..
Khushi (with lower voice)- No break up???
Arnav could not help but smile- Never.. Anything else??
She again went back to her original form- Nothing.. You go, I’m going too.. I’m sleepy..
She dragged herself quickly towards the house. Arnav shook his head murmuring- Pagal..

His Possessive Lover.. (By Roja_Arshi) (Thanked: 78 times)
The moment Khushi stepped inside the house, her eyes fell on her father who was sitting on sofa, leaning back on headrest. She came near, there were lines on his forehead and his look was worn out. Sashi opened his eyes hearing her shoes sound, Khushi was standing few feet away from me, looking everywhere else him!! He sighed, she will never initiate a talk first even if she needs it.
Sashi (to maid)- Serve our dinner.
He did not speak anything neither she said anything. Even if she wants also, something within her never lets her to bend her head easily even after feeling guilty!! Whether that was her ego or anything, she certainly has no idea. She thinks, if there is any thing not-so-well between her and any other individual and if the first one to start solving the issue is her, that means the other person comes first on row and her dominating nature can never bear this fact!!
Sashi though thought to talk, but some where he was confused on his own outburst, what if he loses his control on his emotion and again Khushi ends up doing anything stupid, that thought almost made him disturbed. He thought to talk later, because he can’t maintain this silent with her for too long.
After dinner affair, Khushi went back to her room. She was feeling a little tired so decided to get back bed early.
Sashi who was hardly able to control his emotion seeing his daughter after almost 24 hours, finally gave a break to his self-debate and opened Khushi’s bed room door slowly. His daughter was sleeping on bed, with her one novel and some stuffs scattered on other side of bed. He came, cleaned the mess arranging things in order, sat beside Khushi on bed.
He did miss her badly, his fatherly feeling came over other feeling, he bent down kissing her forehead as gently as possible. He just seated there god knows how long, only staring at his daughter lovely face. She looks so opposite to her nature when she sleeps, all calm, relax, innocent..(he could not help but chuckled.)
Sitting beside his pregnant wife, Sashi Gupta smiling wrapped his arm around her shoulder- What do you think, will we have a baby girl or boy??
Garima leaned on his shoulder- I wish it will be a baby girl, a little fairy!! So beautiful, innocent, cute but still carrying her charm.
Sashi Gupta smiled as he could visualize those sweet moments- Hmm..
Garima again spoke- You know, I’ll make her ready for her school every day, I’ll make her hair, prepare her chocolate drink, I’ll take her to park each day so that my baby can play with her friends.
Sashi- We will hold her finger when she will take her first step, we will feed her together and never ever let anyone hurt our daughter..
Garima nodded her head- And one day like all stories a prince will come riding a white horse and will take our princess with him to his world..
Her eyes were sparkling with joy and happiness even just the thought of all these moments. If only thoughts can give this much happiness, what the reality will bring!!! How will they both treasure that precious moments together???
End of flashback.
Sashi Gupta’s eyelashes felt heavy, he realized there were tears there in place of that happiness. Still he was trying to forget everything, each past seeing his daughter!!
He caressed her hand softly not wanting her to wake up soon but little did he know that she was already up!! Sashi was about to leave, but was stopped in middle being held from behind. He turned around, Khushi was laying on bed holding his hand in her- Are you going Papa??
Sashi felt sort of words to express his feelings, he sat on bed- You were not sleeping??
Khushi sat on bed- I was sleeping but thanks to your so emotional touch.. I had to get up.
Sashi smiled, Khushi- At this hour of night, the combination of tears and smile!! Frankly speaking Papa, your daughter is too low to understand those. These all go bounce over my head..
Sashi lovingly touched her face.
Sashi- That’s I know.. that’s why God has chosen such a son-in-law for me who can understand my angry daughter’s part of sentiments too..
Khushi- God!! Papa, not any more feeling, emotion and sentiment related topic.. Call Arnav, he can give you the best ever company..Spare me.. Now, you just go, have sleep!! If you can’t be healthy enough, then I don’t think there will be any importance of these valuable emotions,feeling or sentiment..
She said, all these words feel so heavy for her to understand. Why an individual has to trap himself with these?? Is this so important in life. Can’t life only depend on something that we can term a NEED?? Just like her each day needs Arnav to pass.
It was early in morning, Arnav’s sleep broke not because of alarm but phone ring!! He instantly answered not even seeing the caller name!! Is it Khushi?? Is everything fine with her or again Khushi pushed herself in any kind of trouble.
Arnav (over phone)- Hello..Khushi?? Khushi, tum thik ho?? Where are you?? Are you at home or.. Don’t even think of any stupid again Khushi..
He said everything in one breath.
“Uff.. Take a breath my lover boy..”, a sweet voice rang in his ear.
He quickly realized the tone- Di??
He quickly checked the caller-id. It was Anjali Di’s call. He sat up on bed.
Anjali- Han Chotey, to your bad luck its me not Khushi.(she teased) So sad Chotey..
Arnav- You called at this morning to tease me Di?? (he asked faking anger..)
Anjali-Aww.. Tum sarma rahe ho Chotey??
Arnav rolled his eyes, getting down from bed- I’m not a girl to blush Di. These all suit you.. Have you seen your face on mirror after meeting Jiju??(he teased his sister back)
He shared a healthy, cute yet strong relation with his sister since childhood. Apart from his lady of interest, if there is anyone in this world whom he loves next then that’s his Di Mrs.Anjali Jha.. Wife of famous lawer Shyam Manohar Jha. They both were college sweet hearts, then became life partners.
Both husband and wife were head over fallen in love for each other, never leaves any chance to be with each other.
Anjali- Shut up Chotey.. now don’t use that on me. (she fights back with her brother.)
Anjali- Acha batao, what are you doing now??
Arnav replied while opening the main door- Now I’m opening the main door, (bending to take milk packet), taking milk packet and newspaper.. and again walking back to kitchen.
Anjali giggled- Wao.. You are too good in explanation now Chotey..
Arnav laughed- Yeah.. Practice makes a man perfect..
Anjali-Ohh..With whom are you practicing Chotey??
Arnav (keeping sauce pan on gas burner)- With whom except the one??
Anjali smiled hearing the reply, she knows his brother is just smitten by a girl named Khushi Gupta, fallen deeply in love. And she is happy for her though some time her mind thinks again seeing khushi in front of her eyes. But in next moment the thought of Arnav, makes her forget everything.
Anjali- Ok, guess where I’m??
Anjali-Guess na Chotey..
Arnav- On your second vacation in Bali with Jiju??(he again teased)
Anjali’s jaw dropped-Choteyyyy!!! Jyada ho gaya..
Arnav laughed-Ok, tell me where are you??
Anjali- At Raizada Mansion. We reached just two hours back.
She was staying in states with her husband.
Arnav was so happy hearing her- You did not tell me earlier Di??
Anjali- That’s called surprise.. You reach here ASAP.
It was evening, like almost every day Arnav was waiting for Khushi near her college gate. Khushi came to him, Arnav-Hii.. How was the day??
She replied plainly- Good!! Why do you always ask same question Arnav??
Arnav opened door for her- Because I just want to hear This Good from your mouth.
Khushi smiled sarcastically- Why?? Does it sound different??(looking at him who was tying seat belt)
Arnav asked avoiding that question, because he knows neither he can make her understand this, nor she can understand herself. It’s better to save both time as well as energy.
Arnav- Today, Di and Jiju have reached.
Khushi- You met them??
Arnav- Yeah.. They were asking for you.. Di will be happy to meet you.
Khushi was about to deny, but the look on his face did not let her deny that. There was something on his behavior that made her stop.
Khushi- When are you meeting them again??
Arnav-Tomorrow over lunch.
Khushi- Will you pick me from college or I’ll come by my own??
Her words brought some relaxation in his disturbed hear. When he asked her, he was not quite sure to hear any positive reply. Khushi is not that social like him, her friend circle is also too small in comparison to him. He has also never put any question.. Everyone should be given when it comes to choose friends in life.
Arnav-Intezar karna.. I’ll reach in time.
He was a bit more composed today, something unusual must have happened!! Thought Khushi seeing him again and again tapping his finger on steering wheel. He does this when he is too disturbed. She can’t even ask why?? Can she??
He has gone to RM.. That means he must have meet his father, Mrs.Raizada and Nikhil there. As far as she knows, he does not take Mrs.Raizada and Nikhil that seriously, he does not like disturbing himself for any of these two. Then does this mean he is disturbed cause of his father??
Khushi-Arnav, drop me at next traffic. I have some work.
Arnav- Fine, I’ll wait.
Khushi- No, I’ll meet you tomorrow.
Before Arnav could ask more, she was gone.
“I want to meet Akhilesh Singh Raizada.. Where is he??”, asked Khushi at Akhilesh’s office.
Akhilesh Singh Raizada is a renowned politician who has won election on 3 consecutive times and this time he is ready to fight for CM election.
Hey guys, how is it? Thank you to everyone for your supports. That means a lot, and
@Angel23, Londoner, Dazzling02, Karthika, asu, Tarrun17, Noordina, Arshi, reena, Smitamedi218, Lily30, Merlin, Seju20, Lazydoll..
Thank you so much for your comments.

His Possessive Lover.. (By Roja_Arshi) (Thanked: 64 times)
Khushi barged in to the cabin shocking Akhilesh Singh Raizada as well as the other person who was also present there. The girl who was trying to stop Khushi, looked at Avinash with apology written on her face. Avinash blinked his eyes indicating her to leave, then concentrated back on Khushi.
Akhilesh- Sit Khushi. (he spoke gently reminding himself what relation he shares with this girl standing in front of him.)
Khushi- I have not come here to sit at this hour Mr.Raizada!!( Akhilesh raised his brow high hearing her addressing him as Mr.Raizada.)
Akhilesh- But I don’t think, if you sit and talk to me about whatever you..
She cut him in middle- Its not whatever Mr.Raizada.. Its about Arnav!! (she said strongly looking directly in his eyes.)
The person who was present there with Akhilesh stared at Khushi confusingly with a bit curiosity too. Who is this girl, he thought himself. He could not help but had to admit inwardly the audacity of this girl while talking to Akhilesh Singh Raizada.. and the thing surprised him most was Akhilesh Singh Raizada’s sober behavior.
She must be some one important, unless as far as he knew Akhilesh Singh Raizada never takes anyone’s high pitch voice in front of him!!
Akhilesh asked- What about Arnav??
Khushi was about to say, but stopped as her eyes fell on a stranger’s face. Khushi- You sure you want to discuss our personal life issues with the present of another person. (she asked crossing her both arms across her chest.)
Akhilesh turned to the man- He is my best friend Khushi, Manohar Nigam. A very much close family friend. ( he added.)
Khushi shuddered her shoulder, she has no interest to hear how close friend he is of Akhilesh’s. She should concentrate back on that topic for which she has here, not some random person’s identity.
Khushi- What did you say Arnav today?? Each time you meet him, the very next instance he becomes too upset!! ( she asked Avinash gritting her teeth. )
Being gently is something she has never learned to behave, and here the topic is not any normal but relating to that person whom she considers as very much her own. His dull face acts like a booster to awaken her that coldblooded personality very easily. She just can’t take it at all.. Even if that sounds weird, she still prefer him advising her, teaching her what’s good what’s bad, trying to control her, teach her the importance of anything that she does not want to hear particularly at that moment…but that time very much easy to deal than his dull and deadly mood!!
Akhilesh stood up- I am his father Khushi.. At least you try to find any logic why should I hurt my own son??( he asked hopefully..) In fact if you are pointing towards my presence during his visit to RM, then let me clarify I was not even there.. Because I too know my presence irks him just like his sad mood irks you!! (He explained gently.)
Khushi thought for a moment, which she does only then when it comes to HIM actually!!
Khushi- Then it must be your wife or son.. Why don’t you try to make them understand?? He is leaving aloof, is not it enough for them?? He visited just for some hours there and this result came out.. I can very well imagine how he must be feeling while he was staying there..
Akhilesh sighed hard!! May be Khushi is right, his busyness in his political career actually aloof him from his personal life. His personal life became squeezed while his political life boosted up!!
The vibration on her phone, made her flinch and she saw the name which was showing Arnav. she looked back at Akhilesh- Make your wife and son understand it very well, Arnav might just forget everything but I’m not like him.. I take time to forget and forgive..and specially if that matter is related to him!!
She strode out of the cabin, answering the call- Yeah Arnav…
Akhilesh sighed hard, sitting on his chair pressing his forehead. Manohar asked- Who is she Akhilesh?? I have hardly seen you trying to act so calm and composed when the other one is in trying to act just opposite??
Akhilesh looked up- Khushi.. Khushi Gupta.. Have you heard Sashi Gupta’s name??
Manohar- Yeah.. Arnav’s business parter??
Akhilesh- Yeah..His daughter. Arnav and she both like each other.
Manohar asked surprisingly- Are you kidding me?? They both like each other.. They both are just opposite in their behavior!!
Akhilesh could not help but smiled a little- Have you heard opposites attract??
Next morning, Khushi was messaging Payal while checking her clothes. After classes she has to go for lunch with Anjali, and her husband Shyam. She picked one semi formal wears from her closet and disappeared in restroom.
Taking a bite of cheese sandwich, she dialed Arnav’s number. After almost 4-5 rings her call was answered.
Arnav- Khushi..( he replied sleepily over phone)
She asked- What happened Arnav??
Arnav (over phone, trying to talk normally.)- What happened..nothing!!
Khushi- Ohh..Really?? Then why are you sounding so worn out??
Arnav laughed- I never knew you would be that much conscious of my voice too..
Khushi wiped her lips, getting up from chair and replied while coming out of the house.
Khushi- I am coming there..
His eyes got widen- Now?? Let’s meet over lunch Khushi..I hope you remember that, don’t you.
Khushi- Do I look like a fool to you Arnav??
Arnav could not help but exhaled deeply. He was having a mild fever with headache since last night after having a not so pleasant conversation at RM. He had had some medicine too but that did not work and he knew very well, he is not going to get spared after Khushi reaches there. So it’s better at least to take nap till she starts her tantrum on him in a different way of caring!!
Khushi got down from her car, walked till elevator and pressed the floor no. elevator started. Khushi came out of elevator, crossed the distance between his flat door and elevator. There her eyes fell on milk packets and morning newspaper laying on floor. Arnav never skips this, it did not take longer for her to assume something definitely no-so-well with him!! But she just can’t understand why he never speaks his need openly??
Arnav peeped his face out from blanket hearing door bell!! She surely drove fast today, unless how come she could reach so early?? He is not going to spare her today.. he made his mind, got down from bed, putting his slippers, he walked out of his bedroom.
“Why did you drive so fast today Khushi??”
“Why did not you tell you are not well Arnav??”
Both spoke at a moment, as the door was opened!!
The guy who was passing by, stopped hearing their high pitch voice. Khushi and Arnav glared at each other for a moment before Arnav’s eyes fell on that guy who was still staring at them in a weird way!!
“What??”, Arnav asked him.
Khushi, who was unaware of her surrounding, turned to see whom Arnav was asking. The guy shook his head left from there. Before Khushi could understand anything, she was dragged inside. Her hands clutched his arms to stable her feet due to sudden pull!!
“What the hell Arnav??”
Is not she looking a bit more attractive in her semi formal attire?? He asked himself, roaming his eyes on her body from top to bottom. There is not a little bit of make up on her face except her strawberry gloss on her lips. Her long eyelashes, reddish cheeks, flawless skin never needs the artificial make over to look more attractive. She can kill him without any artificial make up!! He admitted.
Her eyes were looking at him confusingly and following his eyeballs each movement. What is he looking at so keenly?? She looked down at her own self, touched her cheeks, that did nothing but made Arnav to feel more vulnerable seeing her touching her face..
“Is there anything wrong with my face??”
His lips curled hearing her!! She has practically no idea what he was thinking right now!! He lovingly pulled her in his arms, hugging her tightly still softly burying his face in her hair. He loves her hair’s fruity fragrance!! He has even once thought to ask which brand of shampoo she uses..but knowing that would be a bizarre one he stopped himself. On other hand, when he can do all these once she comes to stay with him permanently..after marriage though..why to ask her then??
She heard him chuckle was about to ask what’s so funny but stopped as the temperature from his body got transferred to her body. She checked him placing her palm on his nape area- You have fever Arnav??
In next moment he was pushed away from her but very gently!!
Arnav pressed his lips, has not he decide earlier to stay away from her closeness?? Why he has to forget everything under her soft touch??
He tried to calm Khushi down who was looking at him angrily- Khushi.. It’s just a mild fever.. I took medicine last night..
Khushi- Last night?? You have been having fever since then??
He cursed himself again.
Khushi- Why did not you tell me Arnav?? ( she mumbled while dialing doctor’s number.)
“Give him medicines twice a day after a light meal.” , said doctor.
Khushi nodded her head, Arnav and doctor got up from sofa. Doctor left, Arnav snatched the prescription she was looking at, said- I’ll bring the medicines.
Khushi rolled her eyes- You seriously think you are going Arnav?? ( her voice was controlling one.)
Arnav crossed his arms across his chest- Then I suppose I’m not allowed to cook either, and as far as I know I’m not allowed to eat outside’s heavy breakfast one.. You don’t know how to cook Khushi.. Then what are you going to feed me then??
She looked at his face which was faking seriousness. But is not he right too??
Arnav sighed- I think I have to make it a habit as in future who knows how many times I have to do this??(he faked a sad and seriousness mixture on his face.)
Hey guys, how is it?? Do read and tell me your views. Both positive and negative replies are accepted warmly. Am waiting.
His Possessive lover. (By Roja_Arshi) (Thanked: 60 times)
“There is nothing that I can’t do..”, said a determined Khushi challenging herself as well as Arnav.
Arnav smirked, this is the strong woman whom he loves like anything in this world. He loves her sporty spirit, confident eyes. She knows it very well what she wants, what she needs and has the will to bring her dreams true.
Khushi browsed on her tab to find out some easy to cook healthy diet. After searching around five minutes, she made her mind to prepare oatmeal. Turning to Arnav, she spoke- Mind it Raizada, no matter what, I’ll never keep you hungry.
He liked what she said. That words were simple to hear but reminded him again and again he is that special in her life, though she can never say in words. Typical Khushi Gupta!! He shook his head.
Khushi asked roaming her eyes around the racks full of stuffs in kitchen- Do you have oats Arnav??
Ohh!! She has decided to prepare oats for him. An easy yet healthy diet. He was impressed.
“In second shelf of left side cabinet.”, he answered leaning on door way.
Khushi nodded, took out oats from packet, opened fridge and brought some milk.
“Where is salt??”, she asked.
Arnav-In the shelf behind you..(he replied.)
“Wow..You remember everything!! I’m impressed.”, said Khushi , for whom these tasks of remembering what is kept and where is none less than any tough one.
Arnav could not stand there longer to watch her first cooking as he got an important call from office. He left to answer that.
Khushi poured milk in pot, but she does not know how to turn on the gas stove. She screamed- Arnav.. Come here..
Arnav came there hearing her scream- What?? Are you done with oats so quickly??(he asked teasingly.)
Khushi rolled her eyes- I don’t know how to turn the gas stove on.
Arnav could not help but laughed hearing her, he asked the other person over phone to call back after a while, and reached near Khushi. She was looking at him, pressing her lips in a cute way.
Arnav- You don’t know how to turn on the gas, and what were you declaring a while back?? (he raised his brows high, while completing her left task.)
Khushi frowned- I just asked you to do this because I don’t know how to do.. Now leave, I know how to cook..(she said angrily seeing him teasing her.)
Arnav asked this time, coming an inch closer- You sure you want me to leave??
Khushi did not reply, kept the milk pot on gas but again she remembered something- Stop..(Arnav was about to leave.., he stopped abruptly.) Tell me how will I know milk starts to boil??
This time, he could not stop his laughter. Pulling her by her forearms, he planted a lovely kiss on her head- You never need to do anything for me Khushi.. I don’t need this, I just want your presence with me and that’s enough for me to get well soon. (he patted her back smoothly.)
Coming out from hug, he turned to gas and started preparing oats himself. Khushi looked at him, is not he perfect in everything?? And she..!! Does she suit him?? She looked down, all of sudden she feels lack of everything in her life.. She turned to leave, when Arnav held her wrist.
Raising the spoon near her lips, Arnav said- You know, I’m too bad when it comes to tasting the food!! You tell me, is it good??( he asked indicating her towards spoon.)
It was a white lie.. Khushi knew that very well but she preferred to stay silent. She nodded her head tasting it, Arnav smiled and poured in two bowls. They came to dining table. Both took their seat in front of each other, started having oats.
Khushi asked but looking down at her bowl- We are not perfect for each other, right Arnav??
Arnav replied calmly as he had already guessed something must be running in her mind seeing her all of silent suddenly.
Arnav- Who is perfect Khushi???
Khushi- You are everything that any girl wants in her life partner!! Are not you perfect??(She asked him feeling insecure on other hand what if he agrees and say yes, they are not perfect for each other. He deserves someone better..at least than her!! Can she take it?? NO!! But can she let him go from her life??)
Arnav held her hand on table that was playing with spoon- I don’t know what perfection are you talking about, but I know this that when two imperfect things or persons comes together, it forms a new definition of perfection. (he held her hand gently.) And above all these.. Main thing I like that when ever I find myself with you, it gives me happiness and that’s so special, too precious.. So what if you think we not perfect for each other, but we both know we both are precious for each other, is not it??
She inhaled deeply!! How does he always manage to do this?? Solving her each tensions, giving her relieve in return. He is just like the soothing power of ice for her burning heart. She will never let him go from her life..Not at any cost, Khushi promised herself.
Arnav hugged Anjali and Shyam. Anjali was super happy meeting her brother once again. Coming out from hug, Khushi turned to Khushi who was standing beside Arnav.
Anjali- Hi Khushi. How have you been??
Khushi- I’m good.. What about you??
Anjali nodded her head. Khushi felt a bit of uncomfortable the way Anjali kept watching her for a while, she looked away. She is not fond of this time brunch or any social program. These all feel like headache for her. But right now, she can’t deny this.. at least for Arnav’s sake.
Arnav could feel the uneasiness between two women, she held Khushi’s hand in his and gripped their fingers. Khushi looked up, but his face was straight looking at Shyam who was telling him something. She sighed. Arnav spoke- So should we order then??
Shyam- Yeah.. Actually for this lunch meeting, Anjali has practically kept me hungry giving me very less breakfast in morning.
Anjali’s jaw dropped- Liar.. (she turned to Arnav.) Look at him and tell me honestly Chotey, is not he gaining weight?? (Arnav laughed, Shyam glared Anjali for this.)
Anjali resumed- Even I was thinking to add only soups in his diet plan.
Shyam- Don’t be this much cruel Anjali.. Yaar, who tortures her husband like you do?? Let me remind you, you have got a husband one in million, but look at you.. You have no respect for this..(he made face.)
Arnav admired his sister and her happily married life. He is so happy seeing her sister’s happiness. He turned to Khushi who was staring at Anjali and Shyam , being lost in her world. Arnav slightly ran his thumb on her fingers still gripping her wrist. Khushi got conscious, turned to face Arnav.
Arnav gave her a smile, she smiled a little.
Before lunch could be served, Shyam spoke sensing the seriousness between Anjali and Khushi- Excuse me guys, I will be back.
He got up, Anjali- Where are you going??
Shyam- Washroom. (Anjali narrowed her eyes) (Turning to Arnav, Shyam said) Arnav, can you come with me if you don’t mind??
Anjali- Why??Why he will go when you are the one who will use washroom??
Shyam rolled his eyes- Kuch baatein hai Rani sahiba(he calls him this to tease her, as Anjali gets irritate hearing this) Jo aap nehi samjhenge..
Anjali- Shyam.. You..
Arnav intervened- Guys stop.. At least see the place before starting.
Shyam almost dragged Arnav.
Now Anjali and Khushi were left alone. Khushi has no idea how to erase this awkwardness between her and Anjali. Anjali being the elder, thought to start the conversation.
Anjali- So..How is your study going on??
Anjali- Last year, right??(Khushi nodded.) Any future plan??
Khushi- Want to do master degree in abroad.
Anjali, was sipping water, stopped hearing her reply- Does Arnav know?? I mean.. Is not it too far??(she asked confusingly.)
Khushi shuddered her shoulder- But what’s there for him to know Anjali??
Anjali did not like when she referred her as Anjali!! That added only more discomfort in their conversation.
Anjali- I’m not saying whether he has any problem or not but long distance relationship is not that easy to work on.. It will not be that easy.
Khushi- You think there is problem.. What’s then??
Anjali sighed- It’s not a problem Khushi, you are taking my words in wrong direction.
Khushi stopped him- One second, I am sure you have not expected me to spend my whole life with in the boundaries of 4 walls. And I don’t think, my dream will hamper my relation with Arnav.
Anjali stared at Khushi having no words to reply.
By then Arnav and Shyam also returned. Food was served, all started having lunch.
