At hospital..

“What happened to Khushi? Is she fine?” Dilshad asked to Arnav worried for their Doll.

“She’s fine Ammi.. Ammi.. Khushi got back to her normal state..” Arnav said giving the big news to his mother with a huge smile on his face.

“What?” Dilshad widened her eyes with a huge smile on her face. Zoya smiled happily, “Really? Where is she? We want to see her..”

“Haan.. take us to her beta..” Nani said smiling, and shocked also as she didn’t thought Khushi would be cured so soon, Dilshad and Zoya were right, this is just a matter of faith. Once you have faith in Allah (God) everything is possible, because he’s the one who makes the impossible possible. 

“She’s with Siddiqui uncle now.. we’ll have to wait..” Arnav said pointing to the room Khushi was.

Asad and Ayan were shocked as hell; they were so embarrassed that they didn’t know what to say.

“Won’t you hug me bhai?” Arnav asked him, he knew Asad wouldn’t take a move if he didn’t. Asad just nodded his head looking away, then walked to him and hugged him.

Ayan gulped, “Woh.. bhai I never thought.. that.. Khushi BHABHI.. would get fine..”

“I know.. you and your stupid thoughts..” Arnav hit his forehead playfully smiling, he was too happy that today he wouldn’t mind anything his family speak.


At the hospital’s room:

Khushi was resting her head on her father’s shoulder, she was much calm now after crying heavily for her mother’s loss.

“Princess..” Aahil called her smiling, “Here drink this water..” he hand over to her a glass of water. Khushi looked at him, then she realized that he’s Aahil.. her best friend from childhood.

“Aahil..” she whispered his name with a smile of realization, he blinked his eyes confirming her guess.

“When did you come here? I can’t believe it you’re here..” Khushi smiled shocked, “Weren’t you in London?”

“I came to visit you but then got to know what happened with you..” Aahil said sadly.

“Ya Allah.. I forgot Arnav beta and his family are waiting to see you Khushi..” Siddiqui said, “You don’t know how much Arnav is happy for your recovery..”

“But I’m not happy Abba..” Khushi looked at him with moist eyes.

“See uncle.. I knew it Khushi wasn’t happy with this marriage..” said Aahil getting angry.

“Kyun?” Siddiqui frowned looking at Khushi.

“Abba you made marry someone without my consent.. and you still ask me why? Which girl would like that? And just think in which state I got married.. when my mentality was like a kid.. this marriage is not acceptable for me..  I just got cured now and I have to accept him as my husband.. someone I don’t know, I don’t feel anything for him Abba..” Khushi said, “Why did you send me to him Abba? Were you tired of me? I became a burden for you, right?”

“No my Princess.. I never thought of you as a burden to me..” Siddiqui shook his head with tears in his eyes.

Arnav knocked the door of the room unable to wait more to see his Doll, he badly wanted to see her face. He confesses, he’s nervous also as he would meet Khushi as a woman now, and not with her childish behavior that he got used to.

Siddiqui wiped his tears and went to open the door, “Arnav beta.. app..”

Siddiqui gulped, he didn’t know what Khushi would say to Arnav, that it might break his heart completely, he knows that Arnav has started to feel something for his daughter.

“Forgive me uncle for my impatience.. It’s just I can’t control myself anymore..” Arnav said embarrassedly, as he peeked to get a glimpse of Khushi.

Khushi looked away, her heart started beating faster. She didn’t know how things would go forward in her life, accepting a man suddenly as her husband.

“Oh.. come in beta.. you don’t have to say sorry.. I should THANK YOU for curing my daughter.. if it wasn’t for you then she would be still behaving like a kid..” Siddiqui said this loudly for Khushi to hear, that the man she doesn’t accept as her husband, did everything at his hand to cure her.

Arnav just smiled and walked in the room, his eyes fixed at his wife. She was strange, her eyes didn’t twinkle when she saw him, her lips didn’t curve into that big smile, her face wasn’t glowing. Her body language clearly indicated him that she was uncomfortable. And that broke his heart into countless pieces.

“We’ll leave..” Siddiqui said to give the couple a private time. But Aahil stayed in his seat, he didn’t want to leave Khushi alone, “I will stay here with Khushi..”

“Who are you?” Arnav raised his eyebrow, just now he noticed a new face in the room.

“Khushi’s friend.. Aahil Raza Ibrahim..” Aahil said with attitude.

“Arnav Ahmed Khan..  Khushi’s HUSBAND..” Arnav replied extending his hand to shake with Aahil’s. 

Khushi looked at Arnav, shocked at his reply. So she was married with Arnav Ahmed Khan, owner of AAK software company, means her father worked for Arnav and that’s the company she always dream to work there.

And the way, he said “Khushi’s husband”, she was shivering by now.


“Let’s go Aahil..” Siddiqui pulled him till the door, he angrily said, “You have to know your limits Aahil.. Arnav beta is Khushi’s husband.. and if he wants to meet her  anytime alone, it’s his right..”

“What husband? Khushi doesn’t even accept this marriage..” Aahil frowned walking through the corridor with Siddiqui.


In the room, Arnav closed the door making Khushi gulp, she clutched her dress nervously, “Dekhiye (see)..”

Arnav turned to her, Khushi shut her mouth immediately.

“What?” he asked walking towards her, “I’m your husband ok and whatever I do you have to accept it without asking me why..” finally he reached to her and sat on the bed.

Khushi  looked at him with tears in her eyes, “See.. I knew it.. that you’re..”

“That I’m that kind of husband who just wants a wife to use her and make her do what he wants to, right?” Arnav cut her.

Khushi nodded her head surprised how did he know what she was thinking.

“Then you must be angry with Siddiqui uncle also for making you marry me without your consent, you must be thinking that he didn’t love you anymore and considered you a burden, that’s why he sent to you to some man whom you don’t even know.. and most important thing, how can you accept this man whom you don’t even know a thing about as your husband? How can you start living as married woman when you just woke up now to the reality? .. Right Miss Khushi?” he asked smirking.

Khushi nodded again confused now, he come he knows everything that is in her mind.

“This is typical thinking of someone who doesn’t use their brain to see the actual truth and just believe in what they see at first time..” Arnav said sarcastically.

Khushi widened her eyes and her mouth formed big “O” shape.

“I think you were more intelligent as kid.. Don’t you think so?” he asked making confused face.

Khushi widened her eyes more, he was making fun of her! Really? In such a situation, his behavior was making her confused.

“See you said you married me without your consent.. But you said Qubool hai three time as far as I remember..” he said.

“I said that for our friendship!” Khushi argued frowning, “I didn’t even know that I was getting married!”

“But you said it.. no one forced you to say “Qubool hai” if you didn’t want, you could have easily said no..” he smirked.

“But..” she was about to say something and Arnav signaled her to keep quiet. She pouted.

“Second thing, if your Abba considered you as a burden he wouldn’t have stayed with you for four years and then get you married recently. He could have abandoned you, left you in an orphanage or in hospital itself with no hope of your cure.. he just got you married, because he was scared that someday something might happen with him and you would be left alone. You didn’t have anyone apart from him, right?” this time Arnav was serious.

Khushi looked at him with teary eyes, she didn’t even thought of that and hurt her father with her words.

“And about us, then you will have to wait and see what kind of husband I am before coming to your own conclusions.. all I can say is that I’m aware that you married me when your mentality was like a kid, to wake up now and started treating me as your beloved husband is impossible and I didn’t even expect it from you..” he stood up and looked at her intensely, “All I wanted was for you to call me once and hug me tightly, feel happy that I was alive and I didn’t leave you.. not in the way of your husband, but as your best friend.. because relationships are made  with heart, and independently that you are normal now and back then you were a kid, your heart is the same, it feels the same thing.. and you considered me to be your best friend, but now I see in your eyes you look at me as if I’m a stranger to you..”

Arnav walked fast as he could to leave this room, he wiped the tear in the corner of his eyes.

Khushi looked at his disappearing figure with mixed feelings, he got her startled when he came back suddenly and moved near her, he bend down to reach her level.

“Just to remind you.. I won’t let you break our bond.. try as many ways you want to!” he said in warning tone and left from there.

 Khushi gulped seeing the intensity of his eyes and determination in his voice. 

While Arnav rested his head on the wall and let the tears he was controlling till then escape from his eyes. 

Thank you so much for the comments and thank you's.

Chapter 12 (By Cookie99) (Thanked: 69 times)

The family came in to meet Khushi, Dilshad was first one who sat beside Khushi and cup her face, she smiled at Khushi, “You don’t know how much happy I’m that you’re cured now.. I prayed a lot for this day..”

“Thank you.. Ammi.. Can I still call you like this?” Khushi asked smiling.

“Of course Khushi.. what changed between us after all? I was your Ammi and will always be now..” Dilshad smiled.

Arnav and Khushi looked at each other, because things changed for them now.

“Khushi bhabhi.. You’re so changed, your voice isn’t like baby anymore.. I just can’t believe it..” Haya widened her eyes shocked.

“Haan yaar.. I’m so shocked… you’re normal like us now..” Ayan also looked at her with wide eyes.

“Was I an alien back then?” Khushi smirked staring at both, “And you troubled me a lot Ayan, it’s my time now!”

Ayan gulped and looked down embarrassed, while everyone giggled at him.

“Do you remember me?” Zoya asked smiling chirpily.

“Yes how can I forget you? We’re going to be best friends because you’re just like me!” Khushi smiled.

“Zoya bhabhi doesn’t break anyone’s heart..” Arnav muttered and Khushi heard him, she looked at him frowning.

“Arnav beta ask the doctor when our Doll can be discharged..” Nani said, caressing Khushi’s hair.

“Today itself Nani.. I already asked him..” Arnav said, “And I have completed all the formalities also.. now she only has to get up from this bed and we’ll get going!”

Haya and Ayan giggled at the way Arnav spoke and Khushi glared at him.

“What? How can she get up like this? She’s still weak you know that she fainted and all that she had to go through..” Dilshad widened her eyes.

“I’m just joking Ammi.. relax!” Arnav said, as other laughed at Dilshad’s over worriedness for Khushi.

“But Khushi now only remember everything of her past and got cured, I guess it’s better she goes with us to her father’s home.. Just to give her time to adapt to all the changes in her life..” Aahil said.

“She will only adapt to the changes of her life when she faces the changes in her life..” Arnav replied, then shift his gaze to Khushi, “But it depends on her, whether she wants to go with Siddiqui uncle or with us..”

Khushi looked at Aahil, his face clearly telling her to go with them, then she looked at Arnav with his smirk that makes him more handsome than what he is, and his expression was like, “Try to run if you want, but you won’t be able to run away from me!”

At last she looked at her father, her father must have thought well before sending her to Arnav, it’s that she doesn’t feel prepared to accept this relationship, she’s scared she will not be able to feel something for her husband, and this is what not she dream for herself. But denying or run away from Arnav means disobeying the decision of the person she most loved in this world, her Abba. She couldn’t break his heart, especially now that he has health issues and is always worried for her future.

“I will go with Arnav..” she said. Siddiqui’s lips immediately curved into a smile and Aahil looked away frustrated.

Asad took the family to his car, while Arnav lifted Khushi in his arms, she widened his eyes and he smirked, in fear to fall she had to wrap her arms around his neck looking away.

“What??? I didn’t force you to come with me.. You only took this decision!” Arnav said trying to hide the smile on his face.

“Your eyes did.. you think I’m fool.. and I can’t understand what you’re doing!” Khushi frowned.

“My eyes! I didn’t know they speak too..” Arnav said innocently. Khushi glared at him.

“But yours surely speak.. this look you’re giving me now.. I think I’m going to sleep with Ammi today, who knows you will murder me with your eyes only..” he chuckled.

“This is what expected from you.. Real man don’t get scared of one glare!” she said rolling her eyes.

Arnav placed her in the car in sitting position at the front seat, he came very close to Khushi, it was just little distance between them that both could feel each other’s breaths.

“Should I show you what what I can do?” he asked in a husky voice.

Khushi’s heart beat increased, she started sweating when it wasn’t even hot. She clutched her dress nervously, and lowered her gaze unable to look into those dangerous eyes.

“Tum…” she gulped.

“Main?” he asked smirking.

“Tum..” she stammered, she felt butterflies on her stomach now.

“Haan main..” he indicated her to continue teasing her with his husky voice.

Khushi didn’t reply, as she completely forgot about what she wanted to say and neither her voice was helping her to ask him to stop doing this.

When she thought he was going too much close and this would result in a kiss, she closed her eyes tightly.

After some seconds, she felt the door being closed and opened her eyes quickly only to see Arnav walking to his driver seat.

She frowned, then looked at herself and realized that he just put the seat belt on her and she was like a fool thinking he would kiss her.

Arnav closed the door of the car at his side, and turned to her smirking, “What happened?”

Khushi glared at him and looked away.

“This is what a real man should do right, protect his wife.. that’s why I just put seat belt on you to protect you from having an accident..” he said smiling mischievously.

“But what happened with you?? Why are you sweating so much? It’s not even hot here in car.. do you want me to switch on AC for you?” he asked.

Before Khushi could reply to him, she sneezed.

“Ohho.. you caught cold without having ice cream?” Arnav shook his head, “Here.. take it.. wear it..”

He handled his sweatshirt to her, Khushi nodded sideways.

“I understand that when I was close to you, you didn’t need any sweatshirt to warm you.. but now I’m not close to you, so you need this..” he said teasingly.

“I don’t want..” she curtly replied glaring at him for flirting openly with her.

“You see I really care about you Khushi.. if you don’t wear it, I will stop the car to repeat the same scene you don’t want to.. so you think, my sweatshirt or me itself?”

Khushi pouted, she took his sweatshirt and wore angrily, then looked at him with “Happy?” look.

Arnav smiled and pinched her cheek, “So sweet my kid obeys my every word!”

“I’m not kid!” she replied irritated.

“Okay.. You’re my wife!” he said driving with a smirk on his face.

“I’m not..” she stopped on her words, realizing that she’s indeed his wife.

“You did right by not completing this sentence..” he said glancing once at her. Khushi just looked away, and stare at the window side.

“Sorry Khushi.. I know you don’t accept me as your husband.. but marriages are gift of God.. one shouldn’t break it easily.. and without trying I’m also not going to give up.. So be ready Mrs.Khan because I’m not letting you go anywhere!” he thought staring at her lost in thought.




At home..

“I can walk by myself..” Khushi said as Arnav was taking her in his arms to their room. They were in corridor and no one was seeing.

“Oh really!” he smirked.

“Stop smirking!” she gritted her teeth.

“Kyun?” he frowned.

“Why are you like this? You didn’t behave with me like this ealier..” Khushi frowned.

“Because that time I was handling a mature kid, now I’m handling an immature woman!” he replied.

“Urghhh.. put me down now..” she almost shouted, her irritation with Arnav was touching another level.

“See how immature you’re.. You’re still weak to walk by yourself.. if I let you down, you might feel dizziness.. ok..” he said.

“I won’t.. Just put me down..” she said stubbornly.

Arnav sighed and let her to walk alone. He crossed his arms and signaled her to go, “Go to your room now..”

As soon as her feet touch the floor, she felt her body weak and was unable to balance herself. Arnav quickly got hold of her, and lifted her again.

Khushi looked down embarrassedly.

“Should I put you down again or you realized what Arnav said makes sense?” he asked.

Khushi pouted, “You don’t need to shout at me like this..”

“Didn’t you shout at me?” he asked.

“No, I was just irritated..” she said and looked away. Arnav shook his head and opened their room’s door, he made her lay on the bed and pulled the blanket to cover her.

“Are you hungry? Do you want to eat something?” he asked softly this time.

Both shared an eye lock as a soft breeze coming from poolside hit their faces gently.

“Jalebi..” Khushi said while nodding her head slowly.

Chapter 13 (By Cookie99) (Thanked: 64 times)

“Jalebi.. This late at night you want to eat jalebi Khushi?” Arnav asked with a “are you serious?” look.

“Kyun? Isn’t jalebi food to eat?” Khushi pouted.

“I will bring soup for you, it’s better..” he said and went to kitchen, while Khushi fumed in anger, “What is this? He will order me now.. Now he will tell me what I should do or not, what I should eat or not..”

“Let’s see how you order me Mr.Khan!” Khushi smirked and quickly lay on bed and acted like she felt asleep.

Arnav returned and saw her sleeping, first he thought she really slept but seeing worried lines forming on her forehead, he shook his head, “Mrs.Khan.. stop your acting and sit to drink your soup!”

“Kyaa? I’m sleeping.. I’m not even hearing what you said..” Khushi replied loudly, then bit her tongue forgetting that she shouldn’t speak loudly in front of him because he would know she isn’t sleeping.

“Immature woman!” Arnav rolled his eyes, “You don’t even know how to act properly.. How can a sleeping person reply to other?”

Khushi opened her eyes and glared at him, “Stop calling me immature woman!”

“I can call you Doll.. but you don’t want that!” he said and sat beside her.

“Yes.. I ..” Arnav cut her by bringing the spoon near her lips and Khushi unwillingly had to drink the soup.

“Oh, you want me to call you Doll?” he smirked.

“NO.. you didn’t let me complete what I wanted to say..” Khushi looked at him angrily, “And don’t think you will order me.. I know very well what I should do or not..”

Arnav didn’t speak anything, he just made her drink soup making Khushi look at him with wide eyes.

“Now drink water..” he said pointing to the glass. Khushi pouted and took the glass. Arnav smirked, “Wah.. what an immature woman you’re.. You’re doing the opposite of what you told me.. You’re letting me order you, then you will blame me only!”

Khushi widened her eyes more realizing he said truth only, she looked at his side but he was gone with the tray to keep it back at the kitchen.



Next morning

Khushi walked out of the room after praying, she went downstairs to help Dilshad to prepare breakfast.

“Ammi.. As salam alaikum!” she smiled entering in the kitchen. Dilshad smiled and greeted her back, “You woke up so soon.. you should have rested my dear..”

“I’ve rested enough.. besides I couldn’t miss my prayers early in morning, after so many days I had to thank Allah for curing me completely and giving me an Ammi like you!” she smiled. 

“Thank Allah for giving you a husband like Arnav who didn’t let your side when no one else believed you could be cured..” Zoya said smiling.

Khushi faked a smile, that’s true it’s only because of Arnav, she’s cured today. But is she ready to accept him as her husband?

“Woh..can I help to make something?” she asked.

“Do one thing Khushi today you make coffee Arnav.. because I always make it for him, but now you’re fine and you’re his wife.. I’m sure he will like to have coffee made by you!” Zoya smiled.

“Good idea naughty girl!” Nani pinched Zoya’s cheek, who giggled blushing.

“If I make coffee for that laad governor.. he will start thinking he can make me do whatever he wants too.. but I can’t deny to Zoya like that also.. urghhh.. I will have to make coffee for him!” Khushi thought.



Arnav, Asad and Ayan reached home after praying in mosque. Arnav sat on sofa in living room waiting for girls to finish preparing breakfast, he took newspaper to read while Asad went to his room talking on phone and Ayan went to prepare for college.

“Did you came?” Khushi faked a smile holding a tray with his coffee and some snacks. Arnav raised his one eyebrow finding strange her sweet behavior with him.

When he saw Nani coming behind her, he understood why she was treating him like that.

“Did you miss me?” he continued with the act smiling and taking coffee from the tray, “Shukriya..”

“I was just asking!” she said gritting her teeth, then faked a smile to Nani who just sat with Arnav.

“Can’t you see with your own eyes that I came back?” he retorted.

Nani giggled, “Arnav beta you won’t give up till she says she missed you.. try to understand beta, girls are shy to admit it..”

Arnav smiled, “But is there anything wrong to admit that you missed your husband?”

“Nahin .. there’s no wrong in it, in fact it only makes love grow between them..” Nani smiled, “’These little little gestures matters a lot in a marriage!”

Khushi widened her eyes and left from there. Arnav and Nani giggled at her going.

“Guess she got shyer!” Nani whispered to Arnav, who just nodded his head smirking.



At AAK..

“Siddiqui uncle.. As salam alaikum.. How are you?” Arnav smiled seeing his father in law entering on his cabin.

He stood up and helped Siddiqui to seat on a chair, then went back to his seat, “Walaikum As Salam beta.. I’m very fine and happy also today.. Khushi.. you know..”

“Yes.. I know..” Arnav smiled understanding how much happiness Khushi’s recovery means to him.

“If you don’t mind beta.. I wanted to meet her..” Siddiqui said smiling awkwardly, he knows this is a place to work and Arnav is his employer, it seemed like he is crossing his limits by asking this but his father’s heart had no patience to meet his daughter, he wanted to see her and hug her, chat with her and so on, and he couldn’t just wait till evening to go to her house and disturb her new family for that.

“Uncle app bhi na... Khushi is your daughter and you have more rights on her than me.. You can meet her whenever you want to.. wait I will just call her to get ready and come here..” Arnav said.

Siddiqui smiled emotionally at him, he really is thankful to Allah for sending such a great man in his daughter’s life. He just prays Khushi open her eyes and accept Arnav, otherwise she would lose if not the perfect, the best husband for her.

“Khushi be ready.. I’m sending the driver to pick you up!” he said after she picked up the phone.

“I’m not at home!” she replied.

“Where are you then?” he frowned, not that he doesn’t want her to go out, but he is worried for her safety.

“I’m buying some clothes for me and where I will not tell you! And I will not go with your driver anywhere ok.. stop ordering me every now and then!” she said angrily and cut the call.

Arnav rolled his eyes, Siddiqui looked at him worriedly, “Kya hua beta? Did she do something wrong?”

“Uncle I understand that you’re worried for Khushi’s behavior with me.. Don’t worry uncle, Khushi is my wife and I won’t give up of her.. she may trouble me how much she wants too and it’s her right too, after all I’m her man only..” Arnav smiled.

Siddiqui smiled sadly, “I’m sorry beta.. first I handed Khushi to you when she behaved like kid, you had to suffer with your family and this society talks and now that she got fine, you’re suffering because of her only..”

“I’m not Uncle.. trust me.. And I completely understand what is cooking in her mind.. she’s just scared to accept this relationship.. and we should understand her part too, it’s not easy to wake up and find out you’re married to someone whom you don’t even know!” Arnav said.

Siddiqui nodded, “You’re very nice.. very few people would have done what you did!”

Arnav smiled while Siddiqui left his cabin sad with Khushi’s behavior.

As Siddiqui left, Arnav grabbed his phone and called Aman, “Aman I’ve got an important work for you.. In one hour, I need you to find where my wife is!”

“What? Did she got kidnapped?” Aman asked shocked.

“NO!” Arnav shouted, “She’s playing hide and seek with me..”

“Then you should only find her na Sir.. then only you will win this game!” Aman smiled sheepishly.

“Aman.. you have one hour.. and you just wasted 2 minutes by talking nonsense with me!” Arnav said staring at his watch, “If I don’t see my wife in front of me in my cabin in one hour, I’m sending you back to New York!”

Aman gasped, “Okay.. okay.. Any clue sir? I mean where should I start..”

“You should start by using your brain!” Arnav rolled his eyes while Aman pouted, “She went to buy clothes, so probably you will have to search in some shop or shopping near my house..”

“Ok sir..” Aman nodded and set to work.



Exactly one hour later..

Arnav sighed seeing no sign of Khushi, he was about to get up from his chair when he saw Khushi coming in with Aman walking behind her. Khushi was muttering something in anger while Aman was looking down, perhaps he heard a lot of taunts by Khushi on the way.

“Good job Aman.. I’m impressed!” Arnav smirked, “You can go now..”

Aman left smiling proudly on himself, but then pouted realizing that till now he hasn’t done any job in office, he just does works related to Khushi only.


“What do you think of yourself?” Khushi asked angrily, “Just because you have so much money, you think you can make people dance to your tunes! Means that now I don’t have my privacy also, I can’t do things I wish to, I can’t go wherever I want to.. hain na? Everything should happen according to what you want.. This is why you married me, you just wanted to boss around me.. I didn’t even finish my shopping also.. and that man came to take me as I have done a crime and I’m being taken to jail.. everyone was looking at me wondering what I have done..”

“If you listened to me, then I wouldn’t have to ask Aman to find you..” he said with serious face.

“I listened you and did you hear what I said? I said I don’t want to go with your driver anywhere..” she almost shouted.

Siddiqui came in after knocking the door and interrupting Arshi’s conversation.

“Khushi..” he smiled. Khushi turned to him and smiled brightly, “Abba..” she ran to hug him tightly. 

“Shukriya Arnav beta.. you managed to bring her here for me..” Siddiqui smiled with teary eyes, means his words mean to Arnav.

“It’s okay uncle.. I will let you both alone here now and I will go and attend a meeting..” Arnav said leaving the cabin.

Khushi looked at him going shocked, she made him listen too much when he just called her to meet her father. Her eyes turned moist and she felt guilty for shouting at him for no fault of his.

“Abba.. you called me here?” she asked.

Siddiqui nodded, “Haan.. I wanted to see you that’s why I ask permission for Arnav beta, but you know what he said.. he said I’m your father and I have more rights on you than him.. he said I can call you whenever I want to..”

Khushi felt guiltier now, she looked down sobbing.

“What happened Khushi?” Siddiqui asked worriedly.

“Abba I shouted at him..” she said crying like a baby, “I made such a big mistake! I shouldn’t have shouted at him, he just called me.. to meet you.. and I .. Ya Allah.. what did I do?”

“You should say sorry to him..” Siddiqui said wiping her tears.





At evening..

Arnav was driving back home with Khushi, she stayed whole day in office with Siddiqui and went to have lunch at Siddiqui’s house also.

Siddiqui also invited him to have lunch with them, but he denied since he had back to back meetings and wouldn’t have reached in time.

Khushi was staring at him while he was driving, she wanted to say sorry but had no courage to. He stopped the car, and she looked at him confused. 

She looked outside the window and saw he stopped at shopping, she looked at him, “Why are we here?”

“To finish your shopping..” he said getting down the car. She looked at him astonished, he opened the car’s door for her making her feel like a Princess.

Soon, they went in a ladies shop and Arnav asked her to take what she wants to. Seeing her hesitant to take something while the sales girl was convincing her to buy something.

Arnav walked near them, “I will help you.. thank you!”

The sales girl went to attend other clients, while Arnav start choosing dresses for Khushi taking as example of what she wore today. He could guess she like simple dresses and scarfs.

“Do you like this one?” he said showing to her. Khushi looked at it, it was a pink and white combination dress, she nodded her head.

Like this, he went on choosing every dress for her.

“First time I’m seeing a husband who has patience to choose clothes for his wife!” the sales girl smiled at them, “You’re very lucky woman!”

Khushi smiled a little at her, then looked at Arnav who had no reaction on his face. Seems like he was still angry with her.

They paid for the clothes and Arnav held the bags for Khushi. She insisted she would carry her own bags, but just one look from him and she kept quiet.

“I’m hungry!” she announced looking at him pouting.

“You’re always hungry!” he added sighing. Khushi widened her eyes and her mouth in big “O” shape.

“There’s a restaurant there.. You go there while I will keep these bags in car..” he said pointing to the restaurant in shopping itself.

Khushi nodded and went there.




She reached and sat on a table for four people, she looked around and started reading the menu. That’s when she got an idea, she quickly took a piece of paper and pen from her purse and wrote on it “I’m Sorry!” then she kept in inside the menu book and waited for Arnav to come.

“Khushi!” Aahil smiled and sat on the chair, “What are you doing here?”

“Aahil..” Khushi smiled, “I came here to eat obviously!”

Aahil chuckled, “But alone? I mean.. didn’t your husband came with you?”

“He’s with me!” Khushi said.

Aahil nodded, “So that means you accept him now as your husband!?.. Khushi if you don’t accept this relationship, you can divorce him also.. no one is going to force you to stay with him..”

“Please Aahil..” Khushi frowned, “He’s not forcing me also.. I’m not going to divorce him.. Abba choose Arnav for me, and my Abba would never choose wrong for me.. and this wedding happened by Allah’s will, who am I to break it?”

Arnav reached and hear Khushi’s last lines, it quickly changed his mood. A soft smile appeared on his lips hearing this from her.

“As salam alaikum..” Arnav greeted Aahil and sat beside Khushi.

“Walaikum As Salam..” Aahil forced a smile.

“Did you already order what you want to eat?” he asked to Khushi.

Khushi nodded sideways, “You order it..”

“How will I know what you want to eat?” he asked her.

“Just order it.. I will eat anything you order..” she said excited for him to open the menu and see her sorry note.

“Are you sure?” he smirked, otherwise she would say he orders her everytime.

Khushi realized what he meant, “Yes.. I’m sureeeeeee.. Now order it.. I’m famished!”

Arnav chuckled at her reaction, he opened the menu book and noticed the piece of paper in it. He read “I’m sorry” and understood why she forced him to order the food for them. He acted like he didn’t read what was written and took the paper to throw it at dustbin.

“What are you doing?” Khushi shouted shocked.

“I guess someone forgot this paper here.. so I’m just throwing it away.. It’s just piece of paper Khushi, not money..” he said trying to hide his smile.

“Right.. it’s just a piece of paper.. but it must have something written on it na..” she said.

“Yeah.. but it’s not ours, we shouldn’t read other things na..” he said.

“Newspaper is also not written by you, but you read it every day!” she gritted her teeth. Arnav was having hard time in controlling his laugh.

“Newspaper is for everyone.. this paper is not for me!” he shrugged.

Khushi wanted to shout that it’s for him only but seeing Aahil staring at them, she kept quiet and looked away sadly.

Arnav smiled, “Aahil what do you eat? Should I order something for you?”

“No thanks, I already had my dinner here only.. I was going back when I saw my Princess here..” Aahil said.

“Sorry.. She’s MY princess now.. not yours Aahil!” Arnav said possessively.

“Oh really.. ask to Khushi and you will get your answer..” Aahil said challenging Arnav.

Arnav looked at Khushi, she looked at both, “I’m not anyone’s Princess anymore.. I’m just someone’s Doll!”

Arnav’s lips broke into a huge and surprised smile. While Aahil left hurt with Khushi’s statement.

“What.. don’t fly too high.. I wasn’t even talking about you.. I was talking about Ammi.. I’m her Doll..” Khushi pouted.

Arnav gave her a “Oh really?” look.

Thank you for comments and thank you's. 

Note: Khushi remembers her moments with Arnav, but she believes that what she did was because she behaved like kid, not that she has feelings for him.

Khushi cleared her throat while they were eating, Arnav looked at her with questioning look.

“So…” she started but didn’t complete it.

“Let it be.. I know you don’t know how to say this word!” he said and continued eating.

Khushi frowned, “Of course I know it..”

“You don’t know..” he said stubbornly, “You only say “Solly” instead of “Sorry”..” he said. 

Khushi looked at him confused for a while, then realized she used to say “Solly” when she behaved like kid, she giggled staring at him.

“How do you know I want to say sorry?” she asked.

“I read your “Sorry” note!” he said showing the piece of paper that was still with him, and he didn’t threw it on dust bin.

Khushi smiled shyly. Arnav just stare and admire her, she looked so beautiful smiling like that.

“Ma Sha Allah (Whatever God has willed)..” the words flew from his mouth.



At home..

“Bhai where were you both? I need your help for my project.. and I was waiting for you for so long!” Haya pouted.

“We were shopping, then Khushi was hungry so we ate in a restaurant itself..” Arnav said patting Haya’s head softly.

“Oh okay.. If it’s for Khushi bhabhi, then I will not get angry with you..” Haya smiled.

“I’m Sorry Haya.. I didn’t knew you would need Arnav.. if I knew it I wouldn’t ask him to eat at restaurant..” Khushi said holding her ear.

“No, it’s okay bhabhi.. I’m not angry with you at all..” Haya hugged her sideways.

“Bhai.. you reached.. please help me na with my project.. I’m not getting the ABC of it.. please bhai.. please..” Ayan said pulling Arnav to his room.

Haya came near them and pulled Arnav to her side, looking angrily at Ayan, “I asked Bhai first for help.. not you..”

“What? Haya you almost completed your project.. I haven’t started yet..” Ayan cried.

“No.. I asked Bhai first, so he will help me first then he will help you!” Haya frowned.

Both started pulling Arnav to their sides. Arnav just rolled his eyes, “Okay.. stop both of you!”

“I will help both of you at the same time.. is that okay now?” he asked.

“Okay.. then let’s go to my room!” Ayan smiled.

“No, my room!” Haya pouted.

“No, my room.. my room is bigger than yours.. and bhai will be comfortable in boy’s room only..” Ayan said.

“What rubbish? Khushi bhabhi is also in bhai’s room.. Isn’t he comfortable in his own room then?” Haya argued.

Arnav and Khushi chuckled at their fights.

“Ayan.. Haya stop fighting.. let’s go to my room and we will complete both of your projects there only..” Arnav said.

“But Khushi bhabhi .. Doesn’t she want to rest? We will disturb her..” Haya said in caring tone.

“Oh no.. I’m not even tired!” Khushi shook her head smiling, “And I can also help you guys in your project..”

“Really? Do you know this?” Ayan asked chuckling.

“Let me show you how intelligent I’m!” Khushi said in challenging tone, and Arnav smirked.




Arshi’s room:

The four sat in Arshi’s bed and set to work, Khushi was helping Ayan who was impressed with her intelligence. While Arnav was helping Haya, who had almost completed her work, she only had some doubts.

When Arnav and Haya completed their work, they waited for Khushi and Ayan to finish.

Arnav was admiring Khushi all time explaining like teacher to Ayan. Haya was giggling at the way Khushi was dealing with Ayan, she explained with patience to him and also scolded him like teachers do.

But Ayan liked it, he found Khushi better teacher than his Bhai. Khushi had a sweet way to explain, she knew exactly what his doubts are without saying it. She could make difficult things sound so easy.

When they finish, Ayan jumped in happiness, “Wow.. I’m going to get the best marks.. I’m sure!”

Khushi smiled at him, while Arnav and Haya signaled him to thank Khushi.

“Oh.. thank you…bha..bhabhi!” Ayan said embarrassedly.

Arnav was kind of shocked that he called Khushi as “Bhabhi”, while Haya couldn’t believe in her ears.

Khushi looked at him amused, but she didn’t want to make him feel awkward, “You’re welcome Ayan.. Whenever you need my help, I’m here only..”

Ayan smiled softly.




Arshi’s room:

After freshen up, Arnav walked out of the bathroom, he looked at Khushi already sleeping. He walked near her, and placed a soft kiss on her forehead.

Khushi quickly opened her eyes, “Who gave you permission to kiss me?”

“You’re my wife!” he said huskily.

Khushi gulped, “Toh???”

“So what? I’ve rights on you.. So I can kiss you, I can hug you, I can do anything I want with you!” he smirked teasing her.

“No!” she nodded sideways, “You can’t force me okay..”

“I’m not in mood to fight with you..” he said and made her close her eyes. He prayed for her and blow air on her forehead softly, then went to sleep.

Khushi opened her eyes again and looked at him lovingly, this small gesture of his to pray for her while going to sleep just touched her heart.





Next day..

“Sana.. What a pleasant surprise..” Dilshad smiled as she welcomed Sana in their house.

“I came here to spend this wonderful Sunday with you aunty..” Sana smiled, “And I’ve brought your favorite halwa for you..”

“Thank you dear..” Dilshad smiled taking the box in her hand, “But we’re going out today.. do you want to join us?”

“Only if don’t mind aunty..” said Sana.

“Of course not.. You’re like family now for us!” Dilshad smiled and patted her cheek lovingly.

“Ammi.. should I take some soft drinks also?” Khushi came in the living room. Khushi looked at Sana, “As Salam Alaikum Sana!”

“Walaikum As Salam Khushi.. it’s so great to see you normal again..” Sana faked a smile. Khushi also smiled.

“Haan.. Ayan and Haya might want to drink it on the way..” said Dilshad, “Let’s go.. I will help you my Doll..”

Dilshad took Khushi with her back to kitchen, leaving Sana alone. Sana clutched her fist, “How dare she take Aunty from me? Khushi you’re messing with the wrong person.. now that I love Arnav, no one will take him away from me.. not even you!”

“Ammi.. Ammiiii..” Arnav shouted from his room, “Where’s my blue shirt?”

Sana smirked hearing his voice, she quickly went upstairs to help him.



At kitchen..

“See! Now he has his wife but still asking me where his blue shirt is!?” Dilshad rolled her eyes.

Khushi giggled, “It’s in his wardrobe only right?”

“Right? But he never finds his clothes.. Always asking for his Ammi! In this matter, my Arnav is still that childish boy..” Dilshad giggled.

Khushi smiled, “I will just go and help him!”

Dilshad nodded and Khushi walked out of the kitchen heading towards Arnav’s room.



Arshi’s room:

While Arnav was busy talking on the phone with Aman, he sensed that someone got in his room. He thought it’s Dilshad who came to give him his shirt. Little did he know that it was Sana.

She took his blue shirt smiling like crazy and kissed it softly, then walked near him and handle his shirt from behind.

Arnav took it, while hanging up the call and turned to her smiling, “Shukriya..” he couldn’t complete his sentence when he saw Sana shyly smiling at him as he was shirtless!

Khushi stood at the door frame staring numbly at both.

Arnav walked to his bed and wore a random shirt, then walked to Sana gritting his teeth, “Who told you to come in my room without knocking the door? Don’t you have manners?”

“You wanted help Arnav so.. I just.. Helped you.. Aunty is busy in kitchen..” Sana said innocently.

“So what?.. My wife is there to help me.. You should keep in your mind that I’m married man now and you can’t just enter in my room like that..” Arnav frowned.

“Your wife! She doesn’t even know where your things are kept Arnav..” Sana said mockingly.

“And it seems you know more than me!” Khushi entered in room crossing her arms and smiled.

“I know everything about Arnav.. actually before you married him, I was supposed to marry him.. but he left me for you!..” Sana smiled and said this intentionally to hurt Khushi.

Arnav frowned, he wanted to say to her to stop talking like this in front of Khushi. But Sana walked near Khushi and started telling Arnav’s history to her. She said everything, from his childhood till now, his likes and dislikes, about his college life and professional career. His relation with his family.

Even he was surprised at the amount of information she had of him.

Khushi heard everything patiently, when Sana finished. Khushi just smiled, and said, “Staring at Arnav’s expression right now, it seems everything you said is truth only..”

“Of course it is..” Sana smirked.

“But you forgot one thing..” Khushi said.

“What?” Sana frowned.

“That.. Arnav loves his wife a lot!” she smiled cutely and looked at Arnav, “Hain na?”

Arnav nodded his head smiling, he must say he’s impressed with her! She just made Sana shut her mouth without fighting, just one sentence was enough!

Sana looked away embarrassed.

“And since Arnav’s favorite color is red.. he should wear red shirt today na!” Khushi said with her cute smile irritating Sana.

She went to wardrobe and picked a red shirt for Arnav, then handled to him, “Aapke liye..(for you)..”

Arnav dropped the blue shirt and took the red one smiling.

“If could excuse us please.. woh kya haina ki.. only I have right to see Arnav Ahmed Khan shirtless.. no one else!” Khushi said.

Sana left from there totally embarrassed and frustrated that her plan flopped badly. Here she wanted to make Khushi feel jealous by handling shirt to Arnav, and she’s the one who got jealous.

Arnav closed the door and locked it.

“Why are you locking it? I need to go and help Ammi..” Khushi said.

“I closed the door because only you can see me shirtless.. and I locked it.. so that no one disturbs us!” he winked at her.

“Aww.. I didn’t mean it..” she looked at him with wide eyes.

“Oh really.. then ok.. I will wear the blue shirt then.. at least she mean to help me!” Arnav said and went to pick up the blue shirt.

Khushi glared at him, “You will wear red shirt only.. you keep ordering me every now and then.. now you will obey me..”

“Why?” he shrugged, “Today I will wear this blue shirt only.. Ammi and Sana love to see me in this shirt only!”

“And what I like doesn’t matter to you right?” she asked as her eyes brimmed with tears, she started feeling like she came in between him and Sana.

Arnav dropped the shirt, and went to her panicked. He didn’t know she was going to cry because of his joke.

He hugged her whispering sweet nothings to her, “Shh.. Doll.. I was just joking baba.. I will wear your shirt only.. ok?.. Stop crying.. don’t you remember I said that you look ugly while crying? Like this I will really leave and marry someone else..”

Khushi beat his chest crying more. Arnav smiled, he cupped her face, “Will you stop crying or I will kiss you??”

He moved his face near hers, Khushi pushed him away and ran towards the door, she unlocked it quickly and went running away from there, with her cheeks turned red like tomato.

Arnav smirked and took the red shirt on his hand, “My love isn’t one side only.. I know you also feel something for me Khushi!”



In car..

Arnav was driving, while Khushi was happily munching her jalebis. Sana, Haya and Ayan were at backseat.

Sana was playing Candy crush with Ayan, but she was not able to make him win. Ayan pouted, “Offo.. you don’t know how to play it..”

“Ayan!” Arnav looked at him through the mirror signaling him to not to speak like that with elders.

“I want to win this level bhai..” Ayan whined.

“Let me try one more time..” Sana said trying to impress Ayan.

“Give me.. I will win for you!” said Khushi extending her hand to take his phone.

Ayan was confused for a while, whom would he give  his phone. To Khushi or Sana?

He smiled sheepishly at Sana, then handled his phone to Khushi, “Yeh lo Bhabhi.. Win for me!”

“Do you know how to play?” Arnav asked teasing her.

“If I win.. you will treat us with vanilla ice cream filled with chocolate ok?” Khushi challenged him.

“Okay!” he nodded and Khushi, Haya and Ayan cheered.

Khushi started the game and in one minute she passed the level for Ayan. Ayan jumped on his seat excitedly, “Wow..bhabhi you’re amazing!”

Khushi smirked at Arnav. Arnav smiled and gave her an “I’m impressed” look.

Sana rolled her eyes angrily, then she got a plan in her mind. She smirked happily.





At a restaurant..

Haya and Ayan were choosing what breakfast they want. Arnav helped Nani to sit on her chair, then asked Dilshad and Zoya what they want to eat.

Khushi was quietly sat admiring her husband’s caring nature towards his family. Sana was doing same as Khushi.

Asad was still busy in his phone not even caring what his wife wants to eat.

“Woh.. Ammi I called Siddiqui uncle, Aahil and Aman to join us.. Is there any problem?” Arnav asked.

“No.. in fact it’s good that they join us.. when family is together, there’s nothing else that matters..” Dilshad kissed her son’s cheek smiling.

Arnav also smiled.

“By the way.. you were asking for blue shirt na? What happened?” Dilshad asked, “Changed idea?”

“Your Doll choose this for me!” he said smirking. Khushi looked down blushing and Dilshad looked at Khushi smiling.

“Looks like Khushi will change Arnav completely.. hain na? Ammi you will not control your son anymore.. Today he didn’t wear your favorite shirt but Khushi’s..” Sana said smiling.

“I don’t mind.. you look more handsome today with this red shirt..” Dilshad pulled Arnav’s cheek smiling.

Zoya didn’t like what Sana said, she could feel it that Sana didn’t had good intentions but Dilshad didn’t understand what she meant.

“Yeah.. I also felt same thing.. Bhai looks different today.. more handsome!” Haya giggled, “Bhabhi you have good choices..”

“I need to use the washroom…” Khushi said blushing, she quickly escaped from there while others laughed at her.




While returning, a man with evil smile came near her, “Baby can you give your phone number?”

Khushi glared at him, and started walking ignoring his evil laugh. The man came near her and was about to pull her back, when Arnav reached and held his arm stopping him from touching Khushi.

“Should I give you ambulance phone number? You will need it very soon!” Arnav said gritting his teeth.

Seeing the pressure Arnav’s hand had, he could see he would receive lots of punches from him. He quickly looked at Arnav with puppy face, “Sorry bhai.. I will not tease her anymore.. please leave me..”

Arnav let him go, and he went running away from there.

Khushi jumped on his arms and hugged him tightly with tears in her eyes.

"Don't I deserve a sweet reward for saving you?" Arnav asked naughtily. 

"Should I give you sweet's shop phone number? I guess you need it!" she said and went back to their table running carelessly. 

On her way she fell due to wet floor, "Ahhhh.." she cried caressing her back and tried to get up. 

Arnav picked her in his arms, "Shall I give you kindergarten's phone number? I guess you need to be admitted there!"


Everyone in the restaurant looked at them in awe.

Arnav came back to their table with Khushi still on his arms. They could hear everyone clearing their throats in order to tease them.

Arnav quickly made Khushi sit to escape from their teasings.

“Arnav I ordered chicken toast for you.. it’s your favorite right?” Sana said smiling.

“You love chicken toast?” Khushi widened her eyes little shocked, Arnav nodded his head confused with her expression, “I also love chicken toast.. I can’t believe it..” she clapped her hands excitedly like a kid.

Arnav smiled at her cuteness, “If that’s the matter, then you take my order.. and I will order another one for me..”

Sana gritted her teeth and looked away, “What’s happening with me? Why all my plans to get close to Arnav are failing? First I went to give his shirt, but he wore Khushi’s choice.. then  I called that man to tease Khushi, but Arnav saved her.. and now.. urghh.. this is not possible, I always get what I want.. and Arnav will be mine!”

“I had already ordered chicken toast for me.. you don’t need to give me yours.. shukriya!” she smiled.

“There’s no “Yours” or “Mine” in marriage... What is mine is yours and vice versa..” he replied.

The waiter came and served for them. Arnav took her plate, “So your chicken toast is mine..” then he handled to her, his plate, “And my chicken toast is yours!”

“But both are chicken toasts.. what difference does it make if it’s mine or yours?” Khushi asked.

“That’s what I’m saying.. we are husband and wife.. what difference does it make if it’s mine or yours?” he smirked.

“Now I get it why you’re AAK!” she replied impressed with his way of thinking!

“Now I get it why you’re immature woman!” he teased her smiling. Khushi pouted, “Aww.. this is not fair!”

Arnav was about to reply her, but then he saw Siddiqui coming with Aahil beside him. He smiled and stood up immediately to greet them.

Khushi looked at him confused, she was facing her back to Siddiqui, so she couldn’t see them. She followed Arnav with her gaze, and then she saw her father.

She smiled softly, “Abba you were right… Arnav is a unique man! And maybe you were studying him for four years when you started working in his company, that’s why you got me married to him.. after checking him completely.. hain na?”

She giggled at her thought.


After having breakfast together, they all went to Arnav’s farm house which is far from the city.

Khushi widened her eyes seeing his farm house, “Wow.. it’s so beautiful this place..”

“Let me tell you a secret..” Dilshad said and took Khushi walking with her towards the door, “This is Arnav’s especial and favorite place.. this house was designed by his likes only.. so whenever he feels like being alone for sometime, when he’s upset with something or when he needs concentration to do his works, he comes here..”

“Oh..” Khushi smiled.

“Khushi come.. I want to show you something..” Arnav held her hand and took her to his garden.

Khushi smiled amused, “It’s so beautiful..”

Suddenly a parrot came flying and rested on Arnav’s shoulder, “As Salam Alaikum!!!!!!!!” he spoke making Khushi shocked.

“He can speak!” Khushi exclaimed.

“Yes.. he’s a talking parrot..” he looked at his parrot, “So tell her your name!”

“Prince!” the parrot spoke and went flying to a tree.

Khushi giggled, “Wow.. I didn’t know you like nature.. I didn’t expect a business man to have this soft corner for the nature side!”

“You don’t know me yet!” he smirked.

“By the way, if Prince is there.. then where is his Princess!?” Khushi asked looking around.

“Princess is shy!” he smiled and looked up to a tree pointing with his finger, “Can you see her there?”

“Aww.. she’s so beautiful..” Khushi smiled admiring the shy parrot hiding in a tree.

“Just like you.. Ma sha Allah!” he whispered softly but Khushi heard it, she looked down blushing.

“I’ve got three little baby cats..” he exclaimed as his cats came towards them. Khushi took one and hugged him tightly, “He’s so cute baby..”

The other two looked at her sadly, they also needed love from her. Khushi giggled and kneel down, she kept playing with them for a while. When they were happy and all snuggling to her, she looked at him smiling, “I think they like me more than you!”

“That’s no problem.. even I like you more!” he smirked talking as if he didn’t said anything especial. Khushi widened her eyes, “Aren’t you ashamed? You’re always flirting with me!”

“Who? Me?” he acted innocently.

“Yes you.. and don’t forget I didn’t accept you as my husband yet.. so you don’t have that right!” she said without realizing that these words will hurt him.

Arnav’s facial expression changed, he looked at her seriously and walked away from there.

Khushi looked at him going, she hit her forehead, “Offo.. I should think before I say something..”




Back at his farm house, Arnav went to sit with Zoya and Dilshad. His face was changed, but since childhood itself, he had a good habit of controlling his anger. He knew he just couldn’t burst out his anger to others when they’re not at fault. So he can cover up his feelings and make others happy, when he’s himself not.

But two person already know him so well that he couldn’t act in front of them even if he want to, his mother and then his bhabhi, Zoya.

“What happened?” asked his mother.

“If I lie you will get to know it, but right now I don’t feel like saying anything Ammi..” he said and she nodded understanding his side.

“Don’t say anything.. but eat these popcorn.. otherwise Ayan will finish it off!” Zoya giggled making him smile.

He took some popcorn on his hand, and thanked her for the same.

Khushi appeared and stood with Haya and Ayan. She glanced many times at him, but he just looked away not even bothering with her presence.

Chapter 16 (By Cookie99) (Thanked: 75 times)

At night..

Arnav went to visit his horses in the stable, he walked in and caressed his horse smiling, “Hey.. missed me?”

The horse brought his mouth near Arnav making him feel ticklish, Arnav smiled, “I guess you did!”

“Bhai.. I want to ride the horse!” Ayan cried excitedly.

“Ayan are you out of your mind? This late at night you want to ride the horse..” Arnav turned back to him frowning.

“Oh come on bhai.. if I ride it in morning or night.. kya farak padta hai (what difference does it make?)” Ayan whined.

“Ayan you’re not riding the horse.. my decision is final!” he said with a “I don’t want any more discussion on this” look.

“Alright.. I get it that everything Haya wants, you give it to her.. but when it comes to me, you always say No..” Ayan pouted and looked away angrily.

“Think what you want.. my decision isn’t going to change!” Arnav said sternly and left from there, not before throwing a glare at Ayan for speaking nonsense to get what he wants.

“Wow.. everything of this farm house is so beautiful.. I’m love with this place!” Khushi said chirpily to Zoya as both were walking outside the stable.

“And with its owner also right?” Zoya chuckled teasing her.

“First she has to learn what loves means, then she will get the answer of your question bhabhi..” Arnav said reaching the ladies.

“What do you mean? I don’t know what love is!” Khushi frowned.

“If you knew,  you wouldn’t dare to..” he stopped realizing the presence of the third person, Zoya. Zoya was confused why both were fighting when sometime back everything was fine between them. Was it? Now she also doubted it.

“I will go and see if Asad needs something..” she smiled awkwardly and went from there leaving both to continue their conversation.

Seeing that Zoya left, Arnav glanced at her one last time and then walked to leave. Khushi stood still.

He stopped walking and turned back, “Do you have any intention to sleep here itself?”

“I don’t want to go back..” she crossed her arms pouting and looked away.

Ayan and Haya passed through them, “Bhai we’re going home.. let’s go!”

“You guys go.. I will join you later..” he said gesturing with his palms for them to go back.

“No bhai.. come with us! It’s so dark now.. I’m scared!” Ayan said with scared look.

“Ayan seriously!” Arnav rolled his eyes while Haya giggled and pushed Ayan with her.

Khushi also chuckled at Ayan’s frightened look while Haya was so cool, it should be the opposite!

“Mosquitoes will suck your blood Khushi.. let’s go back now!” he said.

“Why are you caring for me? You were the one ignoring me all day!” she crossed her arms, “Whether they will suck my blood or not? Tumhe kya farak padta hai?” she glared.

“Farak padta hai.. tumhare liye nahin, for these mosquitoes.. they will suck you thinking they’re getting food, what they don’t know is that your blood too sweet for them.. you will end up kill them all with your sweet poison!” he replied sarcastically.

Khushi’s mouth formed big “O” shape, “Aww.. how mean!”

“Now do spare the lives of these mosquites.. let’s go back home!” he said and started walking.

“On one condition!” she bit her lips glancing sideways at him. Arnav stopped walking and rolled his eyes, “What condition?”

“You will talk with me like you talk!” she said.

“Woh meri marzi hai Khushi..” now he turned and look into her eyes, “I didn’t stop talking with you because of I wanted to.. You created this situation for us! Now you have no right to put this condition to me.. it’s up to me whether I want to talk or not with you..”

“But you know that I still don’t consider you as my husband in all senses.. then why are you getting angry with me? Just because I smiled to you, eat your chicken toast, choose red shirt for you doesn’t mean that I accepted you as my husband! You know that it will take time for me to accept this reality and you said you were ready to wait.. now why are you getting angry with me Arnav? Are you getting frustrated? You’re already tired to wait for me na.. You’re already giving up!” she spoke angrily.

“I’m giving up..” he chuckled with unbelievable tone, “Yeah.. you’re right.. I’m tired.. I’m desperate to make you my wife.. that’s why I left a good proposal of marriage with a ‘good girl’ who respects and loves my mother and gets along well with all my family members, knows how to cook, works in same office as mine, is a good friend of mine who knows everything about me, note well Khushi Sana knows my ‘past’ and my ‘present’.. I left her to marry a ‘girl who behaved like a child’ who doesn’t know how to cook, my brothers and Nani hated her, would never look at me as her husband. But still I fought with my family, I fought with society.. I ignored everyone who bad mouthed you, I ignored every relative of mine telling me that this won’t work, you would never get fine.. I ignored everyone mocking me, laughing at me.. I ignored each of them when they used to say that I spoiled my life by getting married to you, I ignored their pity looks at me, I ignored everyone Khushi.. because I had hope in my heart that Allah will make you fine one day.. it was my belief that kept me moving on, ignoring their hurtful words, and never give up on you.. I prayed everyday for you betterment, your name was in my every Namaaz, I may even forgotten about me, Ammi, Nani, Ayan, Haya, Bhai or Bhabhi, but you.. I never missed to make Duaa (pray) for you.

Do you know everyone was worried how will this marriage work? Will I ever be a father? How will you take care of me when you also were not in state to look after yourself? These were question threw at me every moment, every time by every person who got to know that I married you.. a KID!

But as I was so desperate na, I wanted you as my wife badly.. isliye I never touched you without your permission, I just kept taking care of you without expecting anything in return.. I didn’t even had idea when you will get back to normal.. but I was really so desperate to make you my wife,  that I decided to take care of you not even knowing when you will be normal again..

I was that desperate, that despite people’s taunts I went on to start your treatment with a hope that one day you will be fine.. and that day even came.. Alhamdullilah for that!

When I thought my wait was worth for, my Doll was back to her normal state, now we will start our relationship in true sense.. My own Doll proved me wrong! She doesn’t accept me as her husband.. she isn’t ready to start this relationship yet! I’m a stranger to my Doll now.. which means all these months I spent with her, treating her, chatting with her, caring for her, leaving my office works to spend time with her, sleep cuddling with her meant nothing to her.. all of sudden.. I was a stranger!

But it’s okay..  I’M SO DESPERATE that I decided to give her time, I decided I would not let her break this marriage but will give her space and time to accept me as her husband..

I’m trying to know this ‘NEW KHUSHI’, trying to be your friend, trying to make her feel comfortable with her Arnav who is now a stranger to her.. trying to build our relationship ‘again’.. and she.. she easily says it to my face that I don’t have any right on her..  So easily..

It is so easy for you to say this Khushi.. but it broke my heart completely! You know what, you’re selfish.. all you do is think about yourself.. how you married when you were kid, and now you’re normal so it’s difficult for you to accept me.. it’s only about you! What about me? I married a ‘kid’, was it easy for me? Didn’t I have better options? Then why I just choose you!? Why I left Sana, my mother’s choice and married You? Think about it ok.. then say if I’m tired or not, frustrated or not.. giving up on you or not!”
