Thank you a lot for all the readers who took the time to like and comment it means a lot to me.
"Garima, do you think it would be better if we accept Mittal's proposal for Payal?"
"What are you saying? A new proposal?" shock was an understatement for her when she heard her husband suggesting of marriage arrangements for their elder daughter.
"They are good people, they are our clients since long and most importantly they are aware of the recent happenings and are okay with it, what more can we ask for?" he tried sounding hopeful, hopeful of a better future.
"Shashi? is it you who is saying this? The poor girl just had heartbreak a few days back and you are eagerly trying to hook her up?" she couldn't comprehend what suddenly went wrong with her husband. He never took the decision on their daughter's part, it was always telling them the pros and cons of the action and letting them decide, even in Abhishek's case they said they like him, they had no qualms about her marrying him but only after Payal said yes did they gave their acceptance to the Sinha's.
"Garima, think it from my side, the more the marriage is delayed the more rumors will be spread about our daughter, no one would think that it is Payal who rejected Abhishek because of his money mindedness."
"Yes, I know, as we are living in a society there are some things which we do inevitably keeping in view the society's acceptance of it, but Shashi it is the matter of her life, can we rush this? Our daughter will be the one who would suffer the most in all this, let us give her some time to get over this, I will speak to her if you think it is getting too prolonged, but for now, let us not discuss this with Payal."
"As you say" there is nothing wrong in what his wife has suggested but he didn't want his wrongdoings to affect his children, he is changed man now but will karma let it go? It will get back to him, he had his first experience when Payal's wedding broke, he couldn't tolerate if this continues. Wish he was a little more rational back then.
"By the way, I heard from Jiji that kids are facing trouble in traveling by bus daily, so I'm sending them the scooter."
"Jiji, come fast it is getting late"
"Let's go," Payal said hopping on the pillion seat.
Both the sisters were pretty much happy when their father sent the scooter without much discussion, they doubted if they had to do some sort of pleading so as to make him acceptable to the fact that they would ride the bike on the busy streets of Delhi which is a quiet contrast to the less traffic and peaceful roads of Lucknow.
"Jiji, I seriously need a break, today of all at least, my head seems like it has its own rhythm and thudding according to it."
"Khushi, you are saying it now? Why didn't you mention it before? Let me ride us back home, I will drop you and go, you can speak to the HR directly over the phone for an off today."
"It's ok, Jiji, even if I speak I..." Khushi tried to reassure her sister with a smile of her hence she turned her head slightly backward and at the same moment, a car came to a sudden halt beside them slightly avoiding an accident which might take place as Khushi was not concentrating on the road ahead.
"Aaahhh" with a loud crash both the sisters fell on to the ground with the bike half lying on them. The passer's by stopped to help these two get up and Khushi was the first one to get up and when she confirmed that nothing major has happened to them she leaped forward to teach the driver a lesson on how to drive.
"Are you sleeping while driving or what?" she turned to give whosoever a long lecture but her voice wouldn't support further seeing Mr. Arnav Singh Raizada in full form giving her a murderous glare standing in front of them.
Arnav just wanted himself to never come out from his heaven, his work, he had important video conferences to attend which were preponed at the last moment and the files regarding them are safe in his office desk, he didn't like to be unprepared for anything hence he wanted to rush to office way before the scheduled time but then his Nani wanted to have a talk with him at the same moment, he said they would once he reaches home in the evening but no she wanted to have it then and there and dragged his sister too into the conversation, he was running short of time hence decided to get over with it rather then wasting the time in discussing about the postponement of it.
If Nani thought having Anjali would help her in any way to make her grandson accept her wishes then she was pretty wrong, the moment she uttered the word marriage he broke the nearest vase into pieces and left the room kicking the door after him.
He just wanted to be in office to cool his nerves, it was then he saw the scooter coming in opposite direction and that too the lady who was driving it was not looking ahead, he turned his vehicle to the other side to lessen the impact and avoid a major accident due to the speed both were coming towards each other.
"What the...You? I think I don't have to be surprised to know this fact that it is you, you are the only one in this whole world who would ride a bike without looking ahead, if you are trying for some adventure or trying to get into some world records why don't you practice it at some other time when the crowd is less on the roads, you are planning to kill someone or what?"
"See it is not my fault that you are driving while sleeping, why don't you prefer some other place to rest rather than this?"
"You are the one who has come to this side, I helped you by turning my vehicle the other side, now when I think about it, I should have let it hit your so-called bike, then you would have felt better, instead of saying a thank you, you are blaming my driving skills?"
"thank you? For what? For making us fall down, and what driving skills are you boasting about yourself? You don't even know how to drive a car"
" Ms.Gupta you are crossing your limits," Arnav said taking a step forward.
"Mr.Arnav Singh Raizada, only because I work for you doesn't mean you are right here too." Khushi too didn't mind giving him a retort after all he has shown her hell.
"Work? Half of the time it is your sister who is helping you out and the other half I see you correcting the mistakes of your previous work."
"See, you are the one who is going overboard on loading me with lots of work."
"Then what do you think the office is for? You need to work to earn. You are taking the salary for it, isn't it? You are not doing me a favor by working there."
"Actually when I think about it, you should in all sense thank me because I'm doing even your part of work without taking any additional salary for it."
"How dare you say that Khushi Gupta, first you have a habit of spoiling my day and have the audacity to speak against me?"
"You haven't seen my dare yet Mr. Arnav Singh Raizada"
By the time Payal got up and checked herself to see if she is injured, Khushi was fighting head-on with their boss. She tried to drag her back but Khushi would not hear any of it, she wasn't even responding to her calls. Their fight took a different route and both of them were taking a step towards each other in the process of trying to intimidate the other with their words and body language. She looked around, the on-lookers were looking enthusiastically to see what else would these two do now, some were even capturing the fight in their mobiles, while some were gossiping among themselves.
"KHUSHI" She had no other choice other than to shout and pull her sister back from the heated eye lock she is having with their boss.
"Jiji? Why are pulling me? He is the one who.."
"Enough, not even a single word, you will sit behind while I drive"
"Good to see that at least your sister is using her brains, unlike you" with that Arnav left without waiting to listen to Khushi's answer.
Precap- Arnav tears Khushi's dupatta
