desired surged through her like waves and her head bent down of its own
volition, her lips touching his in the lightest of kisses. When she felt Arnav
kissing her right back, she stepped back in shock. Arnav eyes snapped open to
look at her standing, her body bathed in moonlight, her chest heaving, her quivering
belly exposed through her sheer net saree.
'I ' your lap top was right there'.. I just put it
away'. You can go back to sleep now. I'll just draw the curtains -----'
she was blabbering. Just as she raised her right hand ready to draw the
curtains, she felt Arnav's hand enclose around hers, stopping her. He turned
her around and pushed her back against the french doors. Khushi began to
tremble. She wasn't sure if it was because of the coldness of the glass doors
touching her back or if it was his nearness. Her bangles made a slight clinking
sound as their joined hands slid down slowly.
his hand to her hair and slowly undid the clips she used to pin her hair. He
pushed the unruly lock behind the ear, sliding his fingers down her cheek, her
neck, across her collar bone and came to rest gently on her left shoulder. His
delicate touch scorched her skin like fire and her trembling increased, her
chest heaving. He slowly undid the safety pin, holding her pallu in his hands,
as she stood against the glass in her blouse.
know that there was absolutely no use of the pallu?' he whispered, 'All evening
you looked just like you do right now.'
He put his
hands on her waist, spanning it as if he was trying to measure it, slowly
sliding his hands up around to her back, he undid the jewelled clasp. He slowly
slid his hands up the side of her breasts all the way to her collar bone to
gently peel the blouse off her.
might see us -------' Khushi suddenly realized her bare back was against the
glass doors that opened to the patio. As she made a move to cover herself, he
stopped her, bringing both her hands to her sides.
there is not enough light here, I am having difficult looking at you myself.'
She looked ethereal. His eyes darkened with desire as he looked at
her. Her face was flushed with desire, the milky white skin of her delicate
swan like neck, her gently rounded shoulders, the round mounds of her breasts,
her thin curvy waist, her flat abdomen and her delectable navel just above the
pleats of her saree that was wrapped around her rounded hips.
buttons Khushi -----' he told her softly.
of what she was doing, she fumbled at the buttons of his shirt, slipping them
through their holes. She pushed his shirt back and off his shoulders. He was magnificent. Her gaze drifted
over his broad shoulders and down to the wide muscles of his chest, and lower
still to a flat stomach and lean waist. Dark springy hair grew in a mat over
his chest and tapered gradually to a narrow line that disappeared intriguingly
into the waistband of his jeans.
her hands on his hair roughened chest, moving them slowly so that the hair
abraded her palms. He was so beautiful to her that he took her breath away.
filled with desire so intense that it bordered on anguish. He pulled her
against him so that her breasts touched his hard chest, his hardness pressed
against the softness of her abdomen. Khushi raised her hands automatically and
put them around his neck. As Arnav used his body to push her once again against
the cold glass windows, his mouth searched for and found the sweetness of hers,
Khushi pushed back with all her might to avoid the cold on her bare back, her
hands still clutched around his neck.
slid his hand into her hair to pull her head back, bending down to kiss the
nape of her neck, sucking bits of her skin. His head then moved down, taking one
engorged peak into his mouth, and he slowly began to suck on it. Khushi's hand
clutched at his hair, bringing him closer as she thrust her breast toward his
eager mouth. She felt a molten heat pooling at the lower part of her body as
Arnav continued to suck harder. He then pulled up a chair and sat down in front
of her holding her waist with both his hands. As Khushi arched her back, he
took the other peak in his mouth and began his ministrations. Khushi began to
moan as she dug her finger nails into his strong muscled back, an unknown craving
for fulfilment beginning to take form.
soft kisses down the centre line of her midriff, his tongue leaving a moist
trail until he reached her navel and then he thrust his tongue in and began to
lave at it. When her entire body suffused in the warm sensations that he was
creating, she pulled him up, her hands clutched in his hair. As they stared at
each other for a few seconds, Arnav captured her lips in savage kiss, his
tongue exploring the roof of her mouth, igniting deeply buried fires in her.
dipped his fingers into her saree where the pleats were snugly tucked into her stomach,
pulling out the folds, so that her entire saree lay at a heap around her
ankles. With his lips still joined to
hers, he moved his hand down so that he could cup her femininity through the thin
material of her in-skirt. Though this touch was not new to her, she stiffened
in resistance, closing her thighs together.
ok,' he whispered softly against her lips, as the fingers of one hand deftly
undid the clasp of her in-skirt, so that it slid down her hips smoothly. He
then thrust one knee between her legs, sliding his hand into her panties to
touch her molten silken core. His touch was delicate but a jolt of sensation
went right through her. As his fingers began to move in tantalizing circles,
Khushi realized what her unknown craving was for and she couldn't help the
strangled moan that escaped her lips. The pleasure built and built until every
nerve ending tingled from the top of her head to the tips of her toes. He began
to stroke faster and faster until he felt her stiffen and then shudder, her
arms holding him in a death grip, her legs buckling.
immediately, swept her up in his arms, walked the few paces to the bed and lay
her down on it with infinite gentleness. He quickly removed the remainder of
his clothes, and then hers while raining kisses on her face.
He then moved
over her, opening her legs gently so that he could push into her, losing
himself in her moist, warm sweetness capturing her lips again in a searing
out an inarticulate sound of pleasure, surprised at the lack of pain this time
around. He moved slowly rocking at first, and then the tempo increased
gradually but steadily.
broke on a little cry, and was engulfed in a pleasure so intense that it seemed
her body might shatter like fragile glass.
the faculty of speech. Her arms hugged him tighter, her thighs locked around
him as he had guided her. His groans mingled with her soft, pleading sighs.
I LOVE you.
For a moment
he was poised at the outer boundary of his being, and then, unable to holdback
any longer he plunged through and fell of the edge of the world.
on his jeans and began to pace the bedroom. What
was he doing? Why couldn't he control himself where Khushi was concerned?
What was it about her that made him break his self- imposed rules? And then, she had said those three little
words! There were so many unanswered questions between them that they had
to clear. He suddenly stepped on an object lying on the floor and bent down to
pick it up. It was Khushi's cell phone, flashing an unread message.
in the bathroom, thinking about what had transpired between Arnav and her. Back
in Nainital* she had justified that it would be only for one night. Then how could
she have forgotten that and given in to her desires? She was shamingly aware
that she had not only initiated the love making but had also blurted out the truth I love you''Had he heard her? She
quickly made up her mind. She would go back and tell him about Shyam. There
would be no more secrets.
stepped out of the bathroom, the room suddenly seemed darker and chillier. She
almost didn't see Arnav standing absolutely still by the french doors, his back
toward her, looking out into the night sky. There was not a single star in the
sky tonight and the moon was partially hidden behind a cloud.
were you planning to tell me?' he asked her in a softly menacing voice.
the innocent act,' he bit out angrily, turning around to face her, 'When were
you going to tell me about your affair with Shyam?'
a chill going up her spine. 'What are you talking about?'
try to deny it!' he spat out, throwing her phone on the bed. 'Your boyfriend
sent you a message!'
message? I really don't know what you are talking about Arnavji!' repeated
Khushi in bewilderment.
phone and read the bloody message!' he thundered.
picked up the phone and saw the message, her heart beating fast, her hands
trembling as she began to read.
The time for us to be together has come
after a long time. In know you been waiting for this day just as I. You and I
have made a lot of sacrifices. I had to pretend to love Rani Sahiba just as you
had to pretend to love Arnav. But everything will be worth it as it is for love
' our love. I have to go away now but I will see you in Delhi very soon.
stood like a statue in shock, Arnav strode up to her, held her by the soft
flesh of her upper arms, pulling her closer , 'What were you planning to do
Khushi? Elope with your jeejaji?'
'How can you
think like that?' she whispered shrugging his hands off, 'After what just happened?'
pretending to look so horrified,' he rasped, 'What just happened generally
happens between a man and a woman. It's no big deal!'
'But not for
me! I'. I 'you were the only one ------'
'Oh I know that!
I knew that first night in Nainital that I was your first and have been the
only one to touch you since. So, what am I supposed to do? Thank you for your "sacrifice"?'
Arnav spat out, his face twisted in anger.
Hey Devi Maiyya! Khushi closed her eyes,
tears streaming down her face.
'Oh no! I am
not the one who said that. Your boyfriend says here, in this message.'
'All that is
false!' she declared vehemently.
the ones that you sent him?' he asked her quietly.
miss you'. Where are you?... I am waiting for you.
'I didn't send
them,' she explained, 'Shyamji told me he wanted to borrow my phone to send
messages to Di.' She never used her phone to send messages.
them to himself? And you didn't bother to check? How many more lies are you going
to say Khushi?
no more as you have already made up your mind to believe his lies!'
innocent act! It's not just the stupid sms I believe! That day when we were '..
stuck in the bathroom, he knocked on the door looking for you. Why had he come
to our bedroom at that time of the morning? Then the other day at the
restaurant, I saw him trying to talk to you just before you ran away. You have
been hiding the truth from me Khushi!'
'If it is
the truth you want to know then listen!'
him how he had entered their lives as a man posing as an unmarried guy , how he
had convinced poor Buaji to allow him to stay as a PG. How he had created a situation
where she was forced to get engaged to him. She also told him that she had
broken off her engagement the moment she had found about his treachery.
'If all you
are saying is true, why didn't you tell everyone right way?' Arnav's question
put Khushi in a quandary as she remember how her mother had begged her not
destroy Payal's chances at a happy life with Akash. But she couldn't tell him that could she?
Di!' she exclaimed, 'I didn't want to destroy her marriage.'
'You didn't tell
the truth because you wanted to continue your affair with him!' his accusations
have at least told me Khushi!' came
his anguished whisper.
When just a day before that you had told me that I meant nothing to you and I
did not exist for you? With what right would I have come up to you and told
you?' Khushi remembered the day clearly when after seeing Lavanya in a dress
like hers he had yelled first at Lavanya and then later at her when she had
gone up to speak to him.
say anything to cover you lies now, but I have another surprise for you. On the
night of Payal and Akash's wedding I saw you in each other's arms!'
looked at him, her eyes growing big in shock. 'He forced me!'
his tone was laced with sarcasm, 'Then, why did you tell him to leave my sister?'
remember the exact conversation she had with Shyam that night. She remembered
she was extremely agitated and might have said some things in context. But how
was she going to convince a person who had already made up his mind about her?
As she silently stood in shocked silence she heard the chilling words that came
out of his mouth.
Khushi Kumari Gupta was the reason I married you that night!'
Maiyya! Finally, the words penetrated through the haze she was in and she
asked him her whole body quivering with rage, 'Why didn't you ask me the same night?'
have told me the truth?' he countered.
'Why not? I
would have! In fact I was going to tell you all about him that night. But you
just wouldn't listen to me. You were in such a hurry to marry me by force!'
'Yes! I did
force you to marry me because I was ready to do anything to save my Di's marriage.
Even marry a characterless girl like you!'
like he had slapped her. 'If that's what you think about me, then there would
be no point in explaining myself any more. I will not stay with you another
instant. I am leaving!'
'Oh just cut
it out! You know very well that you are married to a rich man who can keep you
in style and luxury.' He said adding insult to the injury.
that there would be no point in explaining to him anymore.
married I told you this marriage will be for 6 months. It still stands.
Otherwise you know that I still hold Akash and Payal's divorce papers.'
leaving for US tonight. I don't know when I will be back. Once the baby comes,
and I make sure both Di and baby are safe I want you to get of my life that
very instant. Not a minute before that. Do you understand?'
his bags and walked out of the room unlocking the door, then closing it behind
him with a bang, without even a backward glance at her.
down on the edge of the bed. She stared ahead of her into the mirror of the
dressing table at the stranger who confronted her there, with her bruised
bewildered eyes and trembling mouth.
Hey Devi Maiyya. I'ts over! All
Hey guys I know many of you were expecting clearing
of MU. But it's going to take a little more time. I hope you like it. I feel
motivated to write more when I hear from you so do comment and feel free to
give me your feedback.
at the beginning of the update khushi's world was just so perfect and beautiful but by the end everything has crashed down into nothing...even after everything that has happened between them from their honemoon to now, arnav still doesn't trust khushi...he just thinks her as a toy, whenever he feels he extends his marriage from 6 mnths to forever and vice versa...khushi clearly needs a break...contract or no contract she should leave him!!!
Edited by s2612 - 8 years ago
lovely as always...im glad that though the misunderstanding has not cleared. arnav didnt ruin it by just his prejudice. there was just as much hurt and disbelief because of what the circumstances point toward as there was stubbornness and the ever ready need to protect and self preserve. continue soon!...
So there is only one person in this relationship and that is the mighty raizada so whenever he feels like it the relatioship is permanent and vice versa...how could he forget that khushi saved his life and not his precious Di,she was the one who held his hand till the help came knowing fully well that she was risking her own for that good for nothing husband of hers,if she would have been in love with shyam then it would have been good riddance for her.
As far as khushi is concerned she should for the love of god stop hiding things and start thinking abt her own life as well,nobody is worth more than her own self respect.
