After dipping my toes into the OS field with "Homecoming"  and being hugely busy with my Fan Fiction "Perfection" nearing a second innings in terms of action, of course, my brain decided to be a sadist to me and came up with this.  This is a concept that WOULD NOT STOP BUGGING ME. I decided to give in, and so, here it is!


The story is set in the future-11 months ahead. The contract marriage is almost over, with Arnav and Khushi still in the throes of the misunderstanding.  Shyam has had enough, so he tells all the Raizadas, Anjali included, that he loves Khushi, and claims that he and Khushi have been having an affair. Khushi tries to defend herself, but she is not believed, and Arnav throws Khushi out. Khushi returns to the Guptas, and she finally tells her family everything, why she married ASR, how she was tortured and rejected as his wife.

The Guptas are furious because Khushi is innocent, and has been treated cruelly. They cannot forgive Arnav, and decide that Khushi needs to move on. Before leaving for Lukhnow they reveal Shyam's true nature to the Raizadas and leave Delhi. Shyam is jailed. Arnav is devastated at having lost Khushi, but she is gone, and will not contact him. Five months have passed since Khushi and Arnav have seen or spoken to each other.

And now:


January 5, 2013--Page 3-Gossip Column, Publisher/ The Delhi Sun

"The great Delhi Business tycoon Arnav Singh Raizada is off the market again, girls! But this time, after his much speculated, mysterious break up with the enigmatic Khushi  Gupta (no picture available), The fabulous fashion guru ASR has already landed the biggest bitch...err..witch..err..fish  in the Delhi Social Scene! That's right, ladies and gents-our very own Lisa Kampadia, the well known Ramp and Calendar model is said to be the attractive ASR's latest arm candy!  

Well placed sources in ASR/Lisa's camp say that not only is the smoldering sexy sahib smitten with the lanky legs of Ms Lisa, he is longing to larry.. err...I mean marry the lass!  And we hear the marriage is scheduled as early as this month!! So when will Ms Kampadia become Mrs Raizada? Stay tuned to "Page 3" for the latest and greatest on this love story !"


The newspaper fell from Arnav's hand and landed with a smooth "swoosh" onto his desk. Arnav collapsed down onto his chair, feeling oddly breathless, as if someone had suddenly hit him with something heavy in his chest. Sitting at his desk, he stared into space for a few minutes, his mind a whirl of panic, confusion and anger. Picking up the insane article plastered in the gossip section "Page 3" of the renowned Delhi Sun newspaper, he read about his supposed marriage to that stick insect Lisa Kambadia again. He raised his eyes, after the third reading, still not believing that anyone would have the guts to print such outrageous lies about his private life.

His hands trembled in pure rage as he barked to Pam on the intercom to connect him to the Delhi Sun's Editor in Chief. He would drink that bas***d's blood, and have his lawyers tear the paper apart! By this time next week, he would OWN that damn paper, he'd bankrupt them, sue them for libel, for printing this crap! The call was placed, the Delhi Sun had been apparently anticipating an extreme reaction from Arnav Singh Raizada. Arnav conferenced in his own high powered legal team, and picked up the phone-he was about to kill somebody...

Aakash, coming into his brother's office, cautiously, 30 minutes later, saw ASR sitting with his head in his hands. Aakash had gotten a call from their company lawyers, and had spoken to those formal, stiff men who were terrified to pass the information they had on to their furious boss. "Bhai'" Akash murmured to ASR, wincing inwardly when those angry red eyes glared at him.. "Mr. Mehta and the other lawyers confirm the Delhi Sun's claims-they have a real source, someone highly placed, there is no question of libel or asking them to print a withdrawal. Someone trustworthy has confirmed the news, and they are standing behind their story. It could be someone from Lisa's end, but whoever it is will be legally protected by the paper's privacy policy. We can't touch them, Bhai."

 Arnav's voice, which had raged all morning after reading the news item in the paper, now sounded soft, almost despairing "..Aakash, she will see this, it is all over the news, all over the papers, on TV, every channel-its everywhere...She can't miss it. Oh God! Oh my God! Aakash, what will SHE THINK?"


Note: for those of you who are unaware of this, "Page 3" is a famous scandal sheet, that is published in a lot of the top Indian newspapers. The reporting is on the parties, events, relationships etc of business titans, socialites, actors, politicians-the who's who of India, basically. The writer is usually anonymous, while the content heavily relies on gossip and innuendos . While the articles are salacious, the funny, tongue in cheek "masala" style reports on popular society figures, movie stars, etc. makes Page 3 hugely popular.

Fantastic concept and start, Navin !!
The title of this SS is definitely a grab, but what follows in the prologue is even better Wink
So Arnav and Khushi have already been together, and it didnt end off on a good note? Or the media is just unaware of it all?...and who is this Lisa who wants to marry Arnav?...and the "She" being referring by Arnav...is it Khushi? Im intriguied, indeed !! Im guessing the source of the article is either someone from Lisa end or maybe, even Khushi? The article was interestingly written lol!
I await to read further, do update soon :)
