Scalene Triangle & Twirling
She grabbed her half worn hoodie and stumbled up... horrified
Her behind the ear locks all over her face after that rough housing with Shravu
she tucked them all in and wore her hoodie and zipped it up... went over to the bassinet... the baby was half dozing...
She acted like he didnt exist
She turned and he stood right there between the HUGGEE windows and her...
"Excuse me" she said snd stepped sideways...
If there was a situation of utter humiliation this was it...
Every pore mortified. and on fire... "II" he began "Oh! never mind...
He set the book down on the sofa's end table
A fat 500 page book with gold lettering, paperback
"I dont promise, but Ill get there eventually, u know" she muttered
He looked at her like "Phew! shes talking... all is not lost" I just have to tell myself not to" her voice turning hoarse and she began choking on her words"It might take me 3, or 6 months but I will quit reacting eventually...when u touch?
She stepped back as he approached, leaning on a wall
"I bet its a good story for CMU Alumni Magazine u know" her voice quivered, her lower lip shaking like a leaf "a middle class Iyer CPA loses it at the sight of the MBA from Class of 2008?"
She shut her eyes... two quick hot rivers slid down...
He wondered WHERE those tears were, a second ago she was holding her belly and laughing like she had never laughed before "Maybe u can record my moans?" she said in a brittle voice
He was reaching for her arms
"Nooo!!" she slid sideways disgusted... stumbling on a soft settee... she bent snd pushed it out of the way...
He kicked it to a corner with his foot
He reached again...
"I am going home, please tell Sam" she said wiping her tears..
"And Oh! BTW U should go home and raise a toast... whatever u drink...
I didnt make it to the 30 under 30 U were right after all "it does say a lot about the talent"
Her tears flowed freely, her eyes were huge and accusing... displaying obvious defeat... Happy aa iru da! she muttered in Tamil
"thats enough II" he said gruffly
Something about the way he said that only brought more tears, like
THIS was their way of patching up?...
He reached again... she moved again.. he had had it... he didnt talk... but his body language was impatient...
She wanted to be cajoled and indulged and coddled... she was hurting... not only because of the loss of a title... but because of the hurt he had caused her
"U must laugh at me privately..." she shook her head covering her face...
He reached and removed her hands..
"I said its enough" he dragged her wrists, she wore blue bangles yesterday, she still hand them on, a couple snapped and fell on the carpet
He pulled her towards him she landed with some force
His arms went around her
HE HAD SAID TWO THINGS, TWO FRICKIN THINGS "Thats enough II" and "Its enough"
EVEN WHEN I AM UPSET HE DOESNT TALK... AND I AM A FOOL HOPING HE CARES
She stiffened and pushed... he held her tight... soothing, calming...the agitation the restlessness she felt from Friday slowly leaving her body
He crushed her tight... without saying a word... the citrusy scent... his shirt front soaked "what a fool Ive been" "I said it was enough II" he said looking at her sternly
Like he was scolding a child
She felt pampered and felt like a child...
"You have" ("no idea what u said to me)
"Shhh" "Shhh" he said gathering her gently... wearing her like a blanket on ..
ThIS ALL it took for her to settle down?
The two nights and 2.5 days of turmoil, upheaval she faced... she drove herself to a tizzy... not eating and not sleeping and pacing her cube, and her bedroom
He knew how to put a lid on her tantrum... he just held her and told her "its enough"
He didnt offer a speech or a huge windy explanation...
"You" she began...
He held her face in his hands... "Shhh"
"No" she said.. unable to stop her words... or sobs
"I" she began
He just hugged her again, pressing her face on his chest... her forehead on the green lizard logo
They stood there for 10 minutes... not moving "Is there another competition you are readying for?" he asked softly "Kyon?" she demanded sulking "You seem to be losing a pound a day so I wondered" he said softly
She kicked him... and peeled herself off,, or tried to... he held her waist...
"You are the most uncaring man Ive ever known... the most insensitive uncaring... " she moaned agonized..."Wont take too long I shud be all gone" she sobbed
YOU DONT EVEN CARE WHAT YOU ARE DOING TO ME... YOU JUST DONT... U ONLY MOCK ME
U LAUGH AT ME...
He smiled his half smile... and ofcourse didnt say a thing afterwards, just pulled her toward him...
"Are u including your Dad and bala and Baldev and Tanmay in this sample of men?' he asked "Ofcourse not, YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE..." she muttered He looked at her like she might have just said something... "I meant sample.. size is one" she said sombrely "Got it!" he said in his characteristic "few words" style...
He bent down... and buried his face in her shoulder... inhaling the scent of shikakai and sesame... on that skin
She squirmed... "U poke like pins today" she shrieked
"I shaved... 4 days ago" he muttered lying (he had once told her he did in 4 days)
"THATS A LIE" she squirmed...
He unzipped her hoodie... and found a LOT of bare shoulder neck, collar bone... and ermmm...
"No, its 3" he said
"U were clean shaven on Friday, this is not three days" she held his face and rubbed her hand over it"
Stopping suddenly as they both realized they had just discovered something totally insignificant yet too intimate...
a thing only a wife would know... or a GF would
II did now... like they were in a relationship... yet not
"This is not 4" she complained
"I lied" he nuzzled, I shaved on Sat it was a two day seminar, so its technically 2 and 3/4th"
"I KNEW IT" she shrieked..
"II" he begged "I am not shaving right now"
"U LIVE HERE SO WHY NOT?" she ranted
YOU ARE HERE WHEN YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE
"But I dont like the water here" he chuckled
She smacked him...
They flirted with their hands and feet, he yanked her hoodie off ...
"What are you doing? the nanny is right next door. The baby is right here" she hissed
His hands crept up under her tee, and just stroked her hook
She bit her lower lip fighting the moan... stiffening... he still toyed with it... she let out a frustrated sob
WHO WAS SHE KIDDING? WILL WORK ON IT? EVENTUALLY IN 3 OR 6 MONTHS?
THIS AROUSAL WILL STAY WITH YOU THE ENTIRE LIFETIME AND THE NEXT... THIS MAN IS TOXIC
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO YOURSELF DI?
U ARE COMPLETE DEGENERATE
He leaned her on the wall and released her lower lip from imprisonment...by grabbing it with his, realizing she was still fighting
She quickly turned her face sideways not thanking him for the release
"I thought we just took care of that?" (angry, "I let u sulk and cry and hugged you and yet you are back being mad?" tone, )
SHE WAS GETTING HIM NOW... AYYO, THE 4 OR 5 WORDS HE WAS SAYING SHE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HE MEANT...
"You wanted me to stop, why should I I am going to work on not reacting to you" still hurting
"OK... II" He was losing his patience and they were going to fight again...
He just released her hook...
She shrieked and shoved him, with one giant kick to his shin..
The fought by a longish couch, as he bent her over it...
she took him with her... as she wiggled out of reach... until they landed on the couch, her face down first knocking the wind outta her
"Why did u tell Sam u would only baby sit if I wasnt around?" he demanded... hair all over his eyes
He waited for her to do finger kangi she didnt
"I didnt want to see u" "I dont" she corrected
He moved gently on her, spontaneously she relaxed letting her legs accomodate him
"Ayyyo" escaped her lips
"Damn! right Ayyo" he was maddd
He reached for her face...
"You must tell me if you have a Ph D or two tucked away someplace because I" ("cant seem to stop the arousal")she groaned stopping... fighting her arousal...
"You JUST love playing dirty dont you" he hissed
He kissed her smothering the words...
A longgg hard... "You cannot shut up I will have to make you" kiss
His tongue was seeking, feeling every tooth? every mm of skin inside... hungry, tired and aching for him for 3 days,
that seeking only made her dizzy, she held the back of his neck to stop the stroking
"No da please" she begged
He wouldnt relent until she gave him what he wanted...
She lay fully clothed trembling like a leaf, under him felt like he had run her through a blender... her face flushed, her heart racing and completely speechless
His lips were on the insides of her almost bare arms... skin softer than the already soft oil bathed skin
She was red and bruised, and he had only barely begun...
"Have I scratched u more today?" he murmured on her skin, stroking her chin and neck.. "If THATS an apology? then it wont do" she said hoarsely.. He smiled... she knew it was...one
The baby moaned... he grunted...
"How mean!! Paavam da adu, ethana chamathu (poor kid, so well behaved)" she ranted in Tamil
He hugged her and did a "Mmm" like she was telling him a Tamil story and wanted her to continue...
"Ayyyo let me go... its not a story" she squirmed...
His navy lacoste and the white vest rolled into tubes under his arm pit... ofcourse not receving one help in getting off the couch...
... she held the baby faraway on another couch... he sat by her with his book and began reading.. she showed him the
lil fountains on the head secured with those lil yellow bow pins..."I made her hair today"
He drew a line from the baby's nose tip to each tuft of gathered hair
and back to nose... "Its a scalene triangle" he muttered (no angles are equal, no sides are equal) with half smile.. "Would you like to make a equilateral one on a squirming baby?" she asked angry pushing his head from her shoulder...
He smiled his half smile...and dug into her shoulder
"Your Uncle R is a devil, if ever he troubles you come talk to me" she promised the lil angel She coooed, as if she understood "See!! She agrees da... she knows you already"
He was reading... twirling a lock around with his index finger
"I am going to teach you to do that with yours" II whispered
She twirled a lock on the lil head... the baby stared at her mesmerized...kicking her legs into II's belly
He watched her teach his niece...
The kicking kicked up her dress, she felt the baby's soft as butter belly
"Kai tha, I mean apna haath do" she took his "twirling" hand and gently placed the index finger on the baby's belly
"Did u see how soft she is?" II gushed, he took his hand back to flip a page
His head pressed down on her shoulder...
"You need to hang more with me and less with him, you will not learn how to talk if u hang with him, and that would be terrible"
II muttered his hand crept over her chest curves to indicate he heard that... she shoved it back...
"Read? Yes, but wont talk, tall? yes... but who wants to be tall AND quiet? not us ha? kiddo"
