Geet put her head on his chest and said I wanted to spend some quality time with you...
Maan - geet Jaan... You only get Sunday early morning to spend quality time.
Geet - that serial actors are way better than you. They all look happy to spend the morning together.
Maan simply turns back on his stomach to sleep. Geet got irritated and to get his attention she put all her weight on his back.
"Maan says something Na..." She said with a cute pout but can't see it as has his eyes close.
"What should I say? You have already answered your question" he said without making any efforts to open his eyes.
"explain," she said and went ahead to bite his ear lobe.
Maan - geet baby don't you think you are becoming too bold.
Geet - lo I am bold just because I bite your ear lobe and you have problem with that then what about you? When you bite me all over. I have never a complaint.
Maan - sweetheart I am not complaining.
Geet - ya that's why you are opening your eyes.
Maan - god geet you only Sunday morning for romance...
Geet - maan you either open your eyes or you are never going to get any kisses henceforth.
She said in dead serious voice straightening up and maan having no other option open his eyes and turn.
Maan - now can get kisses.
Geet - no you have ruined my mood.
Maan - sweetheart don't do this...
Geet - stop sweet talk with me. Television actors are so good. I wish I had married one of them.
Maan - geet baby, your television actors are actors. They pretend to like every damn thing so stop taking romance lessons from them. I am hell sure they hate this early morning romance as much as I do. And stop talking about marrying someone else, you are bound to me forever and now, as you successfully have my attention let's start with your way of romance. At least, I will get to see what you have learned from your T.V. serials.
Maan - OK start!
Geet - what?...amm... You should start... I will follow...
Maan shot her angry glance.
Geet - OK...OK..Close your eyes first
Maan - why should I close my eyes?
Geet - because you have no choice...You either close your eyes to enjoy the romance or go back to sleep and never come close to me...
Maan simply closed his close without any further inquiries.
Geet - are you sleeping?
Maan - agg... Stop frustrating me geet.
He twisted to get her on back. "Seriously geet, this is how to start a romance?... You can easily ruin all the mode... You know what first go on and learn and then come to me... Now do not wake me up... I can't have a proper sleep... I have to work in an office, I have to work at home to complete the project... In the end, I just want good night sleep and I can't have thanks to you"
He threw up all his frustration on his wife without knowing the consequences of the impact of his words on the poor soul, who has removed her layers of shyness to be with her husband...
Uncontrollable layers of tears started to flow from her eyes. Before she could control it some dropped on the back of maan. It took him a few minutes to realise that the wetness he was feeling on his back was the tears of his beloved. He urgently turned on his side and grab her in bear hug. She pushed him first and then hugged, cried her eyes out at frustration of rejection she has felt.
He hugged her tightly and repeated said sorry to her. Cursed himself inwardly for deteriorating her efforts. It took lots of soothing words to calm her. Finally, she stopped crying and willing to put her head on his chest.
Geet - I am not going to anything which I am not comfortable with... If you going me to make the first move then wait forever... Because it's my right to remain in my comfort zone whether you like it or not...
Before he could speak she stopped him by placing her finger on his lips.
Geet - I know you slept late last night... So, sorry for disturbing you... I agree that I was careless... Now please go to sleep...
Maan - geet I...
Geet - Maan, we are husband and wife and I want to live like that... Now please sleep. We will talk later nothing happens...
She closed her eyes and sleep took over but maan was no able to sleep. He felt of losing control over his anger. Suddenly it seems like he forced her to be mature. A ray of hope that she had disappeared. He make up his mind to do everything to keep thing good in their relationship. This push and pull had a devastating effect on their marriage. He had already thought that he is the one who is more mature between them but her response illuminated his mind.
All they need was let go. He was trying to control things. It was the flow they needed and she understood that better than him. They may have one more hurdle on the road but he was sure they are ready to push it away together.
They spend the needed time with family without compromising with their time together. Once again, they found themselves in each other's arms. She leaned on him. They remain silent. Periodically he would kiss her forever and massages her arm in a soothing manner. No words were needed, they understood the guilt ride they were taking together.
Before leaving the room to prepare dinner she turned and request her husband to finish his work before dinner. He assured her went on with his task.
Keeping the promise. They finished their respective works and headed on the journey of togetherness. It started with slow kisses. They let their actions speak. One can feel the vibe of love. They were together in it. No gimmick and no show-off.
P.S. When I start write this chapter I have made up my mind that I will give a mature update (hot).. but when I start the actual process don't know how I end up writing this. I through to include details but it didn't seem right... sorry for that as I know many readers were expecting the detailed mature content.
