He looked at his phone for the 100th time...

no missed calls..

"she is still mad" he murmered under his breath irritated...he looked around his table...five pair of eyes were observing him intently....

mentally he cursed himself for agreeing to come for this event...

"Mr raizada you okay??" the lean guy sitting right next to him asked..

He nodded his head...and the discussion on the table continued...

"god...love stories are so overrated.."the stocky one remarked...

"I love them...but i agree with you vinay most of them are unreal"the dusky girl replied...

"unreal???" he spoke for the first time...everyone around the table looked at him surprised...

"afcourse...they dont actually exist.."the bespectaled girl to his left replied to him in a matter-of-fact tone...

he smiled...."they do" he whispered...

"really honey..??"the dusky one leaned towards him clearly flirting.."and how do you know that??" she asked...

"something that happened with me..."he replied...

"so whatts your story?? dont tell me its really filmy..."vinay chuckled softly...

"i read somewhere you dont believe in love" the one with blue eyes spoke carefully...

"i didnt"he confessed..."but you cant predict life.."

"Now i am curious..."the lean guy spoke studying him intently..."cummon man i am kinda bored listening to the boring speechs here...."he said irritated...

"so where did you meet her??"the dusky one questioned him...

"we met at a wedding.."he said smiling at that memory...

"standard bollywood"the bespectaled one said smiling...

"HER wedding" he spoke carefully...all smiles dissapeared and he saw five shocked faces staring at him...

he gazed at his phone again...still no reply...he sighed...

20 months ago...

He glanced venomously at the shaking guy in front of him...the whole room stood still...

"we in AR believe in giving our 100 percent...if you cant..you are free to go"he said coldly...

"sssssory sir"the guy replied scared

"I dont care if it was your engagement or whatever....i will not tolerate any kind of professional negligence..."he shouted....and the watched the guy squirm....He liked control and enjoyed his power emmensely....He was the master of his universe...

His phone rang breaking the silence...

"Hello"he barked on the phone...

"Why are you always angry chotte??"anjali asked noticing the edge in his voice...

"what is it di?? I am kinda busy here"he said ignoring her question...

"I just called to remind you that we are leaving today for the lucknow wedding"anjali said...

"CRAP" he shouted...this was the last straw..."I dont understand why people make such a big affair of their wedding...on second thoughts it is way above me why people get married..."he wailed glaring at his neglegent employee...

"BECAUSE thats what society is based on....BECAUSE people fall in LOVE.."anjali said frowning...she almost has this debate daily....

"love...just the play of some quesy harmones..."he sneered and motioned everyone to leave the room...

"okay baba...I am not fighting with you on this...youl understand when you fall in love...be on time...bye"anjali kept the phone down silently praying to the almighty...

He stood up...and silently gazed from his window...Delhi's handsome skyline loomed ahead...

"That day is never coming di...never" he whispered...

HONK HONK

he blared the horns yet again....the roads were jam packed...

"gosh...when did lucknow become so overcrowded??"he shouted handling the steering of his BMW...

akash sulked in the passenger seat and reviewed his hair in the mirror....

"today is an auspicious day chotte...panditji toh keh rahe the ke ye din sirf dus sallon main ek baar aata hai"nani replied in a mystic tone...

"why in the world i agree for this??"he mumbled irritated...

"I think you agreed because of piya"anjali said excited...

"piya...kaun piya??? bhai.."akash asked his brother surprised...

"well il tell you aakash...piya was chotte's girlfriend.."anjali laughed...

akash looked at his brother in disbelief..

"the last time i saw her we were 12..."he answered annoyed..."and i was only friends with her because she played tennis well"he added..

"but youl be seeing her today...arent you excited?? she was the only girl i ever saw you with" anjali probed him happily....she was already envisioning the happy ending...

He shook his head lightly..."di and her devious scemes"he murmered under his breath...

At the venue...

nani hugged her best friend,savitri...it was her grandson's wedding...

"bahut mubarak ho savitri"nani wished her.....and motioned towards her family who exchanged pleseantries with her...

"anjali bitiya..."a pompous lady lunged towards anjali...

"namaste nita aunty...kaisi hain aap?? aur piya kahan hai??"anjali hugged her lightly...

"woh bitiya you know here four weddings are taking place togeather...there is shortage of venues na...so piya is just on the other side of hotel...it is her best friend khushi's wedding"she replied slowly chewing her paan...."il just call her...arrey she raves about arnav beta so much...she will be so happy to see you both" she dialed her phone...

the noise...the glare was too much for him....he was annoyed at himself for wasting his precious time on such silly endevours...he decided to get out...

He walked stealthly evading anjali's gaze....

the corridors were deserted...the venue drowned in the noise of festivities....

he walked slowly....stupidly thinking about the course his life had taken...

He was happy....he told himself...he liked constancy...he was in best phase of his life....

suddenly the lights went out...he could hear everyone's gasps....he halted near the window waiting for the lights to return...

Then it happened...his life altered its course...

somebody crashed with him suddenly....taking him down....the fragrance of jasmine perforated the air....he tried to get up annoyed....as a shooting pain stabbed through his abdomen...

he got up slowly encircling her in his arms....ready to give her a piece of his mind...

moonlight streamed through the window illuminating her face....

and his world stopped at that moment as he gazed in those twinkling brown eyes...

thousands of violins played their melodious tune....

the moon shined to its full vigour....adorning the surroundings in its eree silver light...

"Is the world suddenly beautiful??"he thought still staring at her...

Time stood still...and so did she in his arms...words failed him as he took in her beauty...she was mesmerizing...

lights came back suddenly breaking their trance....she lowered her eyes and tried to free herself from his grip...

He let her struggle...and studied her carefully...she was dressed totally in red....a delicate red veil draped on her head....every inch of her body was covered in ornaments which sparkled accentuating her charm...one of her gaudy necklace had stuck to his collar bruising his neck....as she struggled...the pain increased...

"wait"he ordered...and steadied her shoulders....carefully never taking his eyes off her...he freed her necklace...and let her go...

she fidgeting uncomfertably....

"tum theek ho??"he said kindness seeping in his voice...she looked up nodding her head...

She gasped suddenly..."you are hurt"she said touching his neck gently...

His heart fluttered at her touch...and his eyes widened...embarrassed she shyly retreated her hand back....

He heard voices approach them...and before he could react....she broke into a sprint and ran into the opposite direction...he was too shocked to move..

He took a deep breath...still not sure if it was all a dream...his heart was pounding vigrously in his chest threating to explode....he needed to sit...he needed to calm down...

he walked slowly...to what seemed like an open kitchen....he quickly took out his meds...emptying the whole packet on his palm...he felt his vision blurr...and he tumbled...he was about to crash with a huge utensil containing hot smoldering tea...but luckily he was caught...

"cant you walk properly...Is crashing into stuff your hobby??" she hissed seating him on a chair..."you know il be in heaps of problem...if sombody sees me here..."she continued talking...handing him a glass of water...

He opened his eyes in disbelief...."its not a dream..."that was the only thought on his mind....he drank the water... then he realized that all his medicines had fallen off...

"oho buaji's coming this way...mujhe jana hoga"she nervously excited the kichen giving him a long affectionate smile...

Her heart was throbbing unrestrained as she reached her room...

"KHUSHI"piya lunged at her worried..."where were you?? you have any idea what have i been through seeing the room empty?? I thought you have ran away...or maybe kidnapped..."piya gave her a stern look...

"oho...piya...i am okay.."she replied...his pale face came in front of her eyes..."what if he needs me??"she thought concerned...

"arrey"piya shook her vigrously..."WHERE WERE YOU??"

Her thoughts flickered to him..."I was with him..."she mumbeled...

"him??? you went to meet nishant??? oho shaadi se pehle romance..."piya teased her playfully...

Nishants name came like a blow to her......it felt like a tight slap...

what was she thinking?? what was she doing??

piya looked at her saddened expression..."khushi...you are scaring me now..did nishant say anything..??"piya asked concerned...

"nahi..."she answered touching her arms...she could still feel his warmth on her skin...

"toh...kya hua??"piya's anxiety was increasing every second seeing her lost..

she looked up to see piya's worried face..."arrey baba...i had to ask somthing urgent from devi maiya...and i remembered that there was a small temple near reception...sooo.."she stopped suddenly...

"so you thought...you can run hither and thither..."payal said arriving..."tum bhi na khushi...you could have told me...if sombody had seen you then"she added...

"but nobody did jiji..."she said...

"except him.."her subconscious sneered...

"tum theek ho??"

his words rang in her mind...and she felt something quiver inside her...even now she was debating inside...she had half a mind to run back and check on him...he seemed ill...

payal exchanged a quick worried look with piya...they both made her sit down..

"you relax...and we will take you out in about 30 minutes..."payal said adjusting her veil...

she took a long deep breath...

All her life she had waited for her wedding day....even as a little girl she forced payal to be the groom...whereas she was always the bride...always...

And all her life she had waited to fall in love....she envisioned a perfect fairytale for herself with a happily ever after...a life to share with someone she felt loved more than the world...

So when nishant proposed...she had fully intended to turn him down...what was a marriage without love..??A sky without stars maybe...but her mother and buaji wont budge...Nishant was a good hearted man..and earned quite well....and before she knew she was engaged...and she thought maybe she would be like those countless indian women who found love after nuptials...she made peace with herself....she was happy...her eyes were twinkling with dreams of future...

And now when she was on threash hold of being Mrs Nishant mehra...she had found him....she didnt knew who he was...nor did she care...the connection between them was somthing she had never experienced in her life...but she was helpless...helpless to fate...

tears flew out of her eyes slowly...

"ohh khushi...dont cry...i am gonna miss you so much..."payal hugged her tightly...

"bitiya...challo.."amma said coming inside..."oho bitiya...bas karo rona.."amma wiped her tears...helping her stand up...

As she saw her mother....the debate ended inside her..."I am getting married today"she thought smiling...and shook her head to free herself from all the baggage...her mother led her out slowly...

A new beginning awaited her...

He opened his eyes slowly....he was still seated on the chair....he had no idea how much time had passed...he got up carefully....he needed his meds badly...they werent on the ground either...

"di must be worried..."he thought walking slowly to what seemed like a wedding hall...but it felt different...The hall was a lot bigger...

He scanned the crowd for a familiar face..."maybe i am in the wrong place..."

It was a lot colder here...people were huddled togeather...he saw a shivering groom sipping tea in the mandap...

"poor guy"he mumbled and decided to call aakash...

"dulhan aa gayi"somebody murmered....

His eyes shot up....

and a shiver numbed him...

It was HER...

she was the BRIDE...

He continued staring at her like a maniac oblivious to the world...suddenly she looked at him...her eyes widened and two tears trickled out of them...

"she feels it too..." his heart

cried....for the second time in his life he felt helpless....his world was blackening now...crumbling and falling...

His hand clenched with fury at himself...he doesnt even know her..."nor I want too..."he murmured still gazing at her...he loathed this irrelevant weakness in him...he took a last look of her tear stained face...

He turned back and walked out with everything he had....

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

present day...

He coughed a bit....the dusky one had tears in her eyes...

"then???"she asked begging him to go on...

He smirked..."well thats it...you just wanted to hear a real love story...so i gave u one...i never said there was a happy ending"he said...

The bespectaled girl looked at him in disbelief..."ohh...thats not done"she wailed...

"ohh...theres more...i am sure"the blue eyed one announced..."I can prove it"

"really...how??"he asked amused...

"well you know her part of story aswell...so i am sure you did meet her again..and it wasnt short this time..."she replied...

"bullseye"he sighed...

"but she was getting married..."the lean guy asked confused...

"ohhh...did she have an extra marital affair with you???"the dusky one wiped her tears...

He laughed...and ordered the waiter for another round of drinks...

2 months after the wedding...

He woke up sweating profusely....he looked around shaken...His familiar drab room gave him a faint reassurance....

He was haunted by the same dream for the past 60 days...not nightmare...DREAM...

It was always dark....and she was always on the periphery...out of reach...the more he tried to reach her...the farther she moved away...

post that fateful day...his life had completely changed....his work was his only solace now....he litrally worked till he dropped....he avoided civilization...he barely spoke a word to anyone untill necessary....he was slowly going in his coccoun...

but still she silently found her way into his thoughts....her face flashed before his eyes at odd moments...

what puzzled him most was the profound effect of her....he had just met her once for crying out loud....he didnt even know her name....but the impact of that one moment was like etched on his heart....but not only that the heart breaking darknesss he felt when he saw her as sombody else's was like a nightmare...even now some remnants of that darkness remained in him...

"AHHHHH"he sighed...he was thinking of her again...sombody ruffled his hair lightly....he looked up to see his di gazing at him lovingly...

His wall clock showed 5 am....it was usualy the time he left for office...he had overslept today...

he quickly got up and went to the washroom....he didnt think he was fit for his di's inquisition at the moment...

"di...please dont worry..."aakash said lightly....

"how can you even say that?? he doesnt sleep...he doesnt eat...he doesnt talk...he wont even tell me whatts the problem..."anjali cried...aakash held her steady clearly worried..."last he was like that when mum and dad died..."she added..

"di...bhai has always been a man of few words...and also AR is going international di...i think its only work stress..."aakash replied confidently...

"no aakash...i know hes in pain"anjali wailed...

"di...okay maybe we can contact a good psycologist...that can help"aakash said..

"He doesnt need a doctor...he needs someone to fill his emptiness...he needs a wife.."anjali said...

aakash looked at her in disbelief..."but di you know his stance about marriage...."he said...

"tsk...tsk..his stance would melt when the right girl catches his eye.."she replied...."PIYA"she shouted excited...

"why didnt I think of this before...i can afcourse put these two together and let the magic happen..."she said excited...

"I dont know if it would work" aakash said suspiciously...

"I would...pukka.."anjali replied with conviction and closed her eyes for a silent prayer...

He dragged himself back to his house...to his surprise anjali opened the door bursting with joy....

He smiled and was walking to his room...when she called.."chotte...guess who's coming..??"she said beaming at him...

"err jijaji.."he spoke lightly...

"nahi....PIYA"she said expecting some emotion on his face...

he didnt dissapoint her...

the mention of piya evoked the memory of the wedding...and that well evoked a myriad of emotion...tenderness...heartbreak...pain...anger...hurt...all...

He took a deep breath..."why??"he asked in a matter of fact tone....

"arrey chotte she had to come to delhi for some work....i offered that she could stay here..."she said smiling...

"whatever...i guess il then go to my room...."he walked briskly....mentally he decided to avoid this new addition to his house....

anjali rubbed her hands in anticipation...god has been merciful...even a glimmer of emotion on her brother's face excited her...."kal kab hogi..??"she shouted...

Next day...

he double checked the time before entering the house...it was 2 am...he decided to leave at around 6 am in the morning....he wanted no brush with piya....

he entered his room quitely...and changed into comfy sweats....the room felt stuffy...he decided that a quick stroll on the terrace wont hurt....

he climbed the stairs slowly....feeling the cool breeze on his skin...as he reached the last stair somebody bumped into him....surprised he reflexively held the railing for support...and stedied himself...and the occupant in his arms....he looked up and he felt a jolt....

it was HER...the one he had been dreaming about...the one who wouldnt leave him alone...her eyes were tightly shut with fear...

"ahh...a new dream for a change.."he thought as he felt a familiar ache seeing her face...but strangely he could feel her satin skin under his arms...her flowery earthy smell was in the air....it stupidly felt real..."but thats impossible"he thought...

something was wrong...gravely wrong...

slowly...she opened her eyes....as her gaze met his...all the blood drained out of her face...she gasped...

and before he could do anything...her shriek pierced the air....

"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA"she shouted...

He let her go surprised...but she didnt stop shouting...

"Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa"she shrieked...

maybe now was a good time for him to wake up...

he heard footsteps approach them from stairs....and he was pushed aside first by aakash followed by nani and anjali...

"kya hua?? you okay??"di hugged her lightly comforting her...

nani went by her side.."aap theek hai na piya??"nani asked...

"PIYA???"he gasped loudly...the confusion was increasing manifold every second...

sorry for the short update...@ramya you know me...my diary wont open...that is why i am writing from my sister's account...come on who else wud be insane enough to have a bambi poster??

she just couldnt believe her eyes...he was standing in front of her in flesh...

after all these days of mortification...reflexively she rubbed her eyes...he was still there...

what was he doing here??why??

mentally she kicked herself for agreeing for all this...

"piyaji...you okay??why did you shout..??"anjali asked her reassuring...

"woh anjaliji...hume laga chor hai.."she managed to mouth...his gaze burned her...

"ohhh.."anjali chuckled..."yeh aapke bachpan ke dost hain..arnav.."anjali said lightly...

"KYA??"she shouted...of all people in the world...he had to be arnav..."god i am in one tight coop"she thought...

anjali gave her a concerned look..."kya hua aap...??"

but her gaze was fixed at him...she was scared...part of her was bursting with joy at the sight of him...but the other part was frightened...frightened for piya...

"it had been days...maybe he didnt remember me...why would he??"her mind buzzed...

"do you really want him to forget you..??"her heart said lightly....

"yeh piya hai??"he asked in disbelief...

he knew...he knew...

"ahh"she wailed tightly grasping anjali's arm...."I think i am feeling dizzy..."she tried...

"ohno...piyaji...should i call a doctor.."anjali asked worried...

"nahi...ahh...i think it will pass...il just go to sleep..."she said looking at him...

before anybody could respond...she rushed from there...

she bolted her door...and sat on the bed taking deep breaths...

she took her phone and dialed...

"hello...piya.."she said...

"hello...ahhh..."piya yawned..."god its 3 am khushi..."

"i told you this wont work...i told you lying takes you nowhere..."she started...

"wait...what happened?? did everybody find out..??"piya asked worried...

"No...but they will"she said gently..."we should have never done it...i hate lying you know that..."

"khushi...calm down baba.."piya tried..."but we had no choice na...i had to come to mumbai...it was a once in a lifetime offer...but my mother wont understand...she wanted me married to this dude..."

"arnav..."she said lightly...

"ya this arnav...because apparently he is super rich....but i have a life of my own..i have a carrier..."piya continued annoyed...

"but I.."her voice broke...

"oho...khushi dont cry...the plan is perfect...nobody has seen me there...and we look so alike...nobody would know...quit worrying...even faizal here worries..."piya bit her lip...

"faizal..?? faizal is there with you??.."she asked surprised...

"afcourse...do you think he would have let me come alone..."piya replied...

she sighed.."when will you tell your mum about mumbai?? about faizal??...i cant impersonate you long...i need to return....amma thinks i am doing some kind of job here..."she asked...

"i dont know khushi...but let it be as it is....you also needed out of lucknow....i swear if another person would have accused you being a misfortune...i would have burned him.."piya seethed in anger...

"god...piya...i am okay...aur tumhe kya lagta hai khushi kumari gupta itni kamzor hai..??"she chuckled...

"ahhh...i am sleepy...but tell me why did you call..."piya asked yawning...

she thought about it for a moment...piya already had so many things on her plate...why bother her with more burden...

"kuch nahi...just wanted to talk to you..acha...gud night"she said sweetly...

"bye..take care.."piya said keeping the phone...

she had no idea...how to proceed from here....due to some divine miracle..she had found him again...she had literally fallen in his arms...but why now??

it was clear that both piya's mom and anjaliji wanted the same thing...alliance...

This thought pained her severly...she didnt knew why....

for the first time in her life...she wished she was piya...

sorry for the confusion...i hope its clear now...

He woke up yawning...squinting his eyes at the sunshine coming through his windows...It felt different...It felt great...It seemed that the rays had also driven the darkness from his heart alongside his room...

he got up refreshed...the wall clock showed 8 am...his mind buzzed...he was superlate...he went up to the windows on pretext of closing in the curtains....he looked outside in the direction of his lawn...

sombody was busy watering the lawn...generously sprinkling water in every direction...she was dancing in the process....

his lips twisted in a smile...

and then last night came back to him...that wasnt a dream...and she was piya?? "thats impossible..."he thought...he rushed out of his room...hundreds of questions were burning inside him and he wanted an answer now...

he stood amused less then ten spaces from her...but she was in her own world....she was crooning a song...

"Naye-naye naina mere dhoonde hain

Dar-badar kyun tujhe"

she dances a jig...

"Naye-naye manzar yeh takte hain

Iss kadar kyun mujhe"

"Zara-zara phoolon pe jhadne laga dil

mera

Zara-zara kaanton se lagne laga dil

mera"

she points the pipe faucet towards the sky....making the water fall like rain drops...

"Main pareshaan pareshan pareshaan

pare...."she stopped suddenly as she notices him...embarrased she throws the pipe away....

he stares at her still...he notices that there is no mangalsutra around her neck nor the parting of her hair is marked with vermillion....he takes deep breath washing the torment that had tortured him for 60 dark days....

she tried to look anywhere but at him...annoyed he took a step towards her...

sensing his next move...she tried to rush off...but he was too quick for her...he firmly gripped her hand and pulled her towards him....they stood mere inches apart gazing at each other...

sunlight made the tiny droplets on her face glow....and he noticed how her kurta hugged her petite figure...almost transcluscent...he shook his head to clear his mind...

he gulped..."you are not going anywhere untill you answer me.."he said coolly...she struggled against him...tried her best to free herself...

"i told you i wont let you go till you answer me..."he said gripping her tightly....enough to make anyone wince...instead she gazed back with fury...."poochiye..."she said with a brazen look...

"good...lets start with a simple one...who are you??"he said in an icy tone...

"piya sharma..."she answered without blinking...

"now we both know you are lying..piya wasnt getting married that day...so cut the crap...and tell me the truth...and last i saw you were being led to the mandap...."he interrogated..."what happened...dont tell me the groom ran away.."he added the last bit smirking....

tears pooled her eyes...and he cursed himself for being cruel...he let her go instantly...

"ahem ahem..." anjali cleared her throat....

they both jumped...and looked sideways...

"chotte...you havent left for office...??"anjali asked teasing...

"ahh..di...late meeting..gotta go..."he hurried from there before she could respond...he was still confused...why was she lying?? why being an imposter??

and the most important one...

what happened that night??was she married??

aakash was getting ready for office...

"AAKASH"anjali squeeled in delight...

"kya hua di?? itni khush??"he asked surprised...

"socho aakash...ek ladka..ek ladki...dono bheege hue...haathon main hath...aankhon main aankhein..."anjali whispered...

"di...were you watching a film...??"he asked surprised...

"live film...in our lawn..chotte aur piyaji.."anjali chuckled...

"really??"aaksh shouted in disbelief...

she nodded...finally love had touched her brother's life....finally...
