Clean Lizard & Joint Account
She was reaching for the rod in the curved hook, she lifted one end, and lifted the other one gingerly... he reached and effortlessly lowered it She looked at him like "I dont need YOUR help"
That one lil gesture SOMEHOW showing him how she felt
Who knows if it was his apology Who knows if she rejected it...
He pried her hand off the other end and let it fall to the floor, there were two other curtains on the floor... and not to mention a few extra rings
She stepped on one, and stepped on his foot, leaned and stepped back... their hands joined... left and her right... She lifted her foot off... quickly his toes clean and well groomed.. she looked at the pink toe nail color... "mine dont look too bad" I SHOULD HAVE BEEN WEARING A POKY TOE RING" she thought "thats enough II" he said gruffly... He bent to what SHE THOUGHT was pick her up, but he just let his arms slide around her and just hugged... A soft... feathery... warm... I will never destroy your peace hug... I will never torment u hug
"No" she shook her head overcome with grief/joy/satisfaction at his compassion? She did not know...
He pushed her against the wall, and just held her, his stubbly chin on her bare shoulder...when he opened his mouth on her shoulder, she quivered..
and then stiffened holding herself...
The phone continued to play loudly...
Vaseegara from Minnale
"IF ONE PIECE OF CLOTHING COMES OF, YOU ARE DEAD" she whispered.. gasping
He slowly pulled the red south Indian towel off her head...
"thats one!" he said... on her face..
"I" she began.. leaning forward accidentally transferring the vermillion from forehead (from her morning prayer) to the lizard... on the Lacoste
If she was gasping and if he heard it he didnt show it...their hands still held...
She felt the lizard and then her forehead, for smudge
He bent down, lifted her tee, by inserting FOUR GODDAMN FINGERS UNDER IT, UNDER HER BRA... PULLED HER WITH IT AND RUBBED THE LIZARD CLEAN SERIOUSLY? she stared as her jaw dropped... "It doesnt even show" she hissed at the lizard
He lifted her hand and brought her index finger out and rubbed the lizard clean...
"You are insane" she whispered... Rakshasane... she cursed breathlessly, struggling to free her tee from his grip They struggled by the window, standing on the folds of the curtains... a sea of gold and red... old and new...
He bent to pick her up in a swift move and just took her to her bed
"Dont u dare" she screamed...
"Ayyyo" she scrambled kicking him... he held her down... her head off the bed, hanging... straining her neck.. her hair swaying over the curtains...she held his shirt "Please" No!
He was bent over her BUT NOT HOLDING HER..
PIDI DA.. HOLD ME she yelled NOW? he asked
She shoved with her lower body, he LAUGHED AND DRAGGED HER WITH HER ON TOP...
Thats when the phone rang... she panicked and reached for it by his leg...
He pinned her down.. and slid over her
She begged "Its Akka... PLEASE DA" "Ayyo" she begged He bent down
It continued to ring...
Ouch she yelped... shoving him off her sore lower body, panting and turning away, face down, as he slid over her...
her lounge pants almost over her knees his legs all over hers...
She put her hand over his mouth and turned
"PLEEEZ DA I BEG U" she trembled
"Ummm hello" her body shaking
He tried to pry her hand off... his hair all over his forehead the rest of her sindoor all over his nose and upper cheek
"Ishita what happened kanna?" He put his hand under her tee
She muted the phone... PLEASE? I am begging u" she pleaded
"I swear I begging u" SOMEHOW TRYING TO QUIETEN HIM
Hit mute again to speak
"Ennachu?" Akka enquired "NOT A THING KA" she said laying down on her back, her heart vibrating like a ping pong ball inside a tin can
holding his wrist over his watch TIGHTTT ready to yell
She placed a hand on her forehead as he lay on her and nuzzled her neck
"Oh nothing" "I was asleep" she gasped... covering his mouth fully
"He lifted his head and gave her one of his signature looks and said "THAT WOULD BE LYING"
Muting the phone, almost when he began speaking
DREADING AKKA FOUND OUT
ADA PAAVI! U ROTTEN STINKER... I AM SAVING U.. RAKSHASANE BAAKI TIME PESAVE PESAADE... IPPO PESU LOUDAAA Be mute at all other times but u choose to talk NOW? U are the absolute worst...
"I will TALK IN TAMIZH KA" she shrieked
At a nip on the collar bone
She hit mute again "U can add another 2 or 5 grand to what I owe u, BUT PLEASE DA BE QUIET"
She spoke to him like she spoke to Shravu... when him and her promised to return to bed at mid night but she would play ANOTHER MOVIE on her laptop...
they would huddle under her blanket.. he would laugh LOUDDLY watching the Wimpy Kid movie
One hand was holding the phone the other trying to fight his hands his face his mouth, his legs, she hit speaker...
"Ishita, I need a favor kanna"
"Please sollu ka enna favor venum?" ALL IN TAMIL what do u need?
"Can u check the mail basket if Appa got a ICICI letter for me and him? "Its a joint Account ille, FD mature aayirkum The FD matured"
AYYYOOO HOW CAN I GO CHECK NOW?
AYYO RAKSHASANE... SHE SHOOK HER HEAD ANSWERING AKKA IN MIME Can I check after the nap ka?
He continued to be "busy" on her
She barely hit the mute gain.. YOU ARE SO DEAD WHEN I AM DONE TALKING WITH AKKA, SO DEAD..."
Sh turned, shoving him off her, the mail basket was in her room on top of a chest of drawers between two windows..
she got most paper mail so Appa thought it was good idea to keep it there
She felt his jaw on her back below her neck... she arched her body and pushed
Falling on him backwards
Her panting was making Akka suspicious
"Ishita.. ARE U SO SICK?"
"You only have your period di" "Why are u acting like you are dying?"
II turned red, and R&B paused... gently letting her go, she hit speaker to disable it
AYYO AKKA, DO U WANT TO SEND IT TO AMBALA TIMES? AYYO... SHIT... AYYO.. She was red like a curtain she just hung
She shoved her hair off her face, and searched the bin, flushed, swollen and hot...she didnt look at him...
because II had died of embarrassment and gone to heaven
And in heaven you dont feel embarrassed
"Ummm there is two ka" she said calmly.. "Ishita? Is everything OK kanna?"
R&B LAY IN HER BED, HEAD PROPPED UP BY ALL HER PILLOWS TEXTING FURIOUSLY,
THE SPACE HEATER ON THE OTHER BEDSIDE TABLE WAS ON TOO, one leg folded up, the other down flat...
"Hmm" she said
THIS BED WILL FOREVER BEAR THE SYMBOLS OF YOUR FORM
Rakshasaney, THE ONLY PLACE THAT WAS FREE OF U.. IS NOW YOURS
"Go back to sleep kanna sorry da"
She hung up and set it in the basket
And stood there staring at him
HE LOOKED AT HER LIKE ARE U NOT COMING BACK? ETHANA KOZHUPPU DA ONAKKU MY HOUSE MY BED MY PILLOWS MY HEATER...
