Before you guys start reading the update, I have got a lot to say.
THIS IS THE LAST UPDATE OF DESTINED TO LOVE
Yeah, you read it right.
Last chapter coz the story has reached it's end point and I don't wish to drag it anymore.
The story was about Arnav discovering his love and realising it. And finally he has.
So, I have chosen this point to stop the story as I am going to be busy from this Monday. My college is starting and then I won't have any time to write the updates. So, sadly I am closing this story.
But the happy side of the coin is that SOL will be running and you can continue reading it.
Plus, I'll be posting an EPILOGUE of this story too.
On top of all this, I sincerely want to thanks you all guys who stood by me and read all the updates, showered your love. Words woldn't be suffice for the love I recieved for this story.
Thank you Everyone
P.S. Please for heavan's sake don't call it a short update coz this was the hardest update for me...
Shyam reached for her and was about to slap her when a grip cold like death caught his hand in mid-air.
"Arnav…!" Khushi exclaimed in surprise but Arnav's glaring eyes were staring at Shyam.
"Not even in your dreams dare to think that you can slap MY KHUSHI" Arnav said with clenched teeth and jerked away Shyam's hand.
"You have no right…" Shyam shouted but Arnav cut him in between not caring a bit to hear him.
"And mind it, you are living through this attempt just because you are HER brother. So don't ever dare to hurt MY GIRL." Arnav's tone was dangerously serious.
"Arnav..." Khushi said softly and Arnav turned to her.
"I am so relieved to see you here. I was so..."
"Shhh..." Arnav hushed her.
"Now I am handling this. Relax. You are mine Khushi and no one can change this" Arnav said giving looks to Shyam, Garima and Buaji.
"Handle what? I have had enough of you Arnav…! You have said and done a lot. You have already spoiled the life of Khushi. Both of you are in newspaper. People are going to talk about this, about her character. Now what else you want to say and do?" Shyam was furious beyond reason.
"Shyam, don't you think you are over reacting in this matter? I don't give a damn about what perspective you hold of me but, if you blame Khushi about this or anything, I am not going to stand here and tolerate any bullshit of yours."
"And,' said Arnav turning to Buaji and Garima
"I think we can talk about this. Buaji, Aunty, shouldn't we sit and discuss?" Arnav said politely.
"Sure we can. I'd like to get into the reality of the matter" Garima said and gestured Shyam to sit and hear which Shyam did fumingly.
Everyone took a seat except Khushi who was still standing with tears in her eyes.
"Khushi, please sit. You don't have to feel guilty about this. Come here" Arnav assured her and she too settled on the couch next to Arnav.
"So Arnav Babua, what have you got to say?" Buaji asked impatiently.
"Buaji, I don't have much to say. Everything is very simple. I love Khushi and If she agrees I want her to be Mrs. Raizada." Arnav finished with a small smile on his face and gave a side glance to Khushi.
Khushi was again in tears but Arnav could bet that these were the tears of happiness.
Buaji and Garima showed signs of surprise while Anjali too was shedding the tears of happiness.
Shyam was speechless for the first time and was carrying a blank look on his face.
"You mean you want to marry Khushi? My Sankadevi?" Buaji confirmed with delight and Arnav nodded in approval.
"Yes Buaji. I am in love with your Sankadevi."
"And Shyam." Arnav turned to face him.
"I very well understand your worries regarding Khushi because long back I too had the same worries in my mind. I respect your concerns for Khushi. But I find it surprising that why don't you try to think positively about mine and Khushi's relationship? You too have been in love. Isn't it? You have felt the power of love. And now same is with me. The intensity of Khushi's love, her trust in me has changed me. Her love has changed my beliefs, the course of my thoughts. Now I believe in love. And I can never hurt Khushi. So, please try to trust me. The same way as I trusted you with Di."
Arnav could see that Shyam was affected by his words for the anger on his face had faded.
There was a long pause in the room. Shyam looked at Khushi and then at Arnav.
"If Khushi wants the same, I have no problem" Shyam said in a surrendering tone.
"All I want is Khushi's happiness. And if she finds that in you, I am okay with everything. I think I can trust your love for her. Maybe I was being too much irrational. I am sorry about it."
"That's okay. I too could have behaved better with you" Arnav said.
"Thank you Bro" Khushi hugged Shyam.
"Anything for you" Shyam said while hugging her back.
"So, I think now everything is settled?" Anjali was overwhelmed. Finally the ice between her Chote and Shyam had thawed away.
"Not yet Di. Something is still left"
"What?" Anjali asked curiously.
"Khushi, allow me." Arnav addressed Khushi and she turned to him with questioning eyes.
"To ask you once again, here in the presence of every dear one of you that will you marry me and be my better-half?" Arnav went on his knees and asked Khushi, amazing Khushi and everyone.
Khushi's heart stopped beating for a second when Arnav did that, once again, right before her family. Her heart swelled with pride and happiness.
The fruit of her prolonged wait was here, golden and shining. Her throat was choking with emotions.
Arnav Singh Raizada was asking her to be his wife.
She gave fleeting looks to Shyam, Buaji, Garima and Anjali. To her sweet surprise Shyam had the broadest smile on his face. Buaji, Garima and Anjali too were visibly happy.
"Yes Arnav. I will marry you. Because we are destined to love. Destined to be together." Khushi replied with raging happiness and hugged him tightly.
Arnav returned the hug with same passion.
"Ahem Ahem. Now when I am okay with this impending marriage doesn't means both of you have a right to make a public display of your love"
Shyam said with a smirk and everyone including Arnav Singh Raizada burst into a laughter.
Finally Arnav had learnt how to laugh. How to love.
