Themes, Offers &"Biwi"
He didnt know what to say, he clearly couldnt stand being with Mr Iyer for more than a minute, anything more than that he had to...
Amma Appa can even take Monday off, since Tuesday is out big Deepavali" II whispered
"Umm... I guess"
"RUKOGEY?" she asked stunned
He held her from her back, firmly, in a steely grip, bending down on her shoulder
"I guess" he said aloud but thought "U dont leave me with much choice do you?"
"I am sooo excited, I used to peek into Akka's room to catch her making out with Athim" II whispered giggling uncontrollably,
"I wanted to be the one that gave Athim his coffee,
the extra pillow, show him where the sugar dabba is when he wanted more sugar, showed him how the hot and cold geyser taps were switched in my bathroom.
Akka would come out of the room flustered and disheveled I would tease her did u fall off the bed?"
II sighed walking down memory lane
"Appa and athim talked about cricket and BJP and Jayalalitha" II giggled
He listened... "You need to come up with a list of topics u can talk with Appa" "I will tell you all I know about Jayalalitha, and DMK" she said nodding confidently
"Appa is very caring... he cant sit still, he will try to make you somehow more comfy" she gushed
Knowing Mr Iyer's feelings for him, he doubted if he would even open the front door for him
Diwali was a blast, quite literally at MM
It made it to Page 3 many years along with the Aunrangazeb Rd and Prithiviraj Rd parties
He kicked up "some" noise, by buying and lighting the noisiest, bordering on illegal fireworks
He once lit one too close to Ranjan's car, blowing his windows off
He was grounded for a week
Ranjan imported cases of expensive wines and German beer just for Diwali
Sam and Ma clocked a good 20-30 miles trying to find that kundan or white gold set on Dhanteras
Ma would employ an array of chefs to make the tastiest snacks hed ever seen every year would be a new theme
Either based on emotions and family or seasons or art. The desserts would mirror the theme, the house would be decorated similarly
One time he recalled the house was enveloped in sitar and tabla shaped chinese paper lantern lights
Tabla shaped cream filled coconur macaroons
Depending on a the theme, an artist of repute was invited to perform, silk and chiffon rustled with words like Euros and Yen
"Do u want to go to poker tonight" he asked, shaking himself
She smacked his arm wrapped around her belly
"I just told Tan... ekdum boring hai poker. Main kuch jeet ti nahi, tum cheating karte ho," she said dismissively
He shook behind her softly
"Lasya is all over you. No thanks!! I dont want to fight with the mistress"
"I could shave, she hates that" he whispered
"Oh yaaa...pleaseee shave for HER" II was furiousss
Tan returned soaked "Oye hoye... ghar bulaakar nehlakar bhejta hai sala" he cursed
II extricated herself from R&B's grip and began making chai for herself and Tan and Dad
She gave him R&B's tee and a towel...
Tan asked her about KMPG buying another small SW company
"looks like they are serious about making money on this thing" he commented
II chuckled, "I am so sick of SW right now, I dont want to think abt it"
"U could manage the back office for a major US telecom provider I signing on next year" he offered
"Can I work from home?" II winked
"Sorry... no" Tan winked
"I want to be with the baby" II said
Tan looked on thoughtfully "Are u serious?" he asked
"No she is not"R&B said with unconcealed envy
"Why?" asked Tan
"I asked her if she wants to join Argent" R&B muttered growling, unable to hide the subtle jealousy
"Aaahhh! To yeh baat hai, pati ka offer nahi liya Jeeje ka le liya?" Tan laughed
R&B looked at II
"Dont let him arm twist you... come to the dark side" Tan coaxed
"Two offers ummm... who can offer more?" II winked
"Dekh bhai... sex to tujhe de nahi sakta... the master is sitting right here... , baaqi tere saamne hai... I will employ an Iyer cook in the cafeteria?"
II blushed seriously...
"Let me think?" she left it at that
The kids went to Shanti Niketan, she took a nap after feeding periappa some chocolate burriti
She slept from 5 to 10 PM
He was gone to poker when she woke
She thought of going to Akka's then thought they must all be asleep
Worked for a couple hours, sent a bunch of annoying pings to her husband
Talked to whichever friend was online, sent more annoying pings
And went to bed, and was woken up by dude at 9 AM ish, she woke threw up, brushed and went back to bed
He was fully dressed and smelled like Sam's
They hugged each other
"Yaad aa gaya ghar" she gently kneaded his stiff back and neck
"Aur biwi" he said, she laughed into his tee, hearing his chaste Hindi
Her soft fingers massaged his neck.. she gave him many finger kangis as he gently dozed in her arms
"Not ONE text back Rakshasaney" she cursed, he gently caressed her belly, Nivi danced
"I was winning" was his blunt answer
"Kitna jeete?" she asked
"Rs.79,816, after tipping the dancer, I should have Rs.50,000"
"DANCER? DANCER? Dancer kaun?" II was wide awake
"Not sure" he said sleep drugged
THEY HAVE "ONE O THOSE?"
I MEAN WHERE BELLY DANCERS OR STRIPPERS SHOW UP TO ENTERTAIN?
"Was she sexy?" she asked
"she was hot... not sure abt sexy though" he said with a twitch of lips
Sadly since his face was buried in her bosom she couldnt see
She felt like someone dipped her ina boiling pot of hot sauce
"Raatri poora avaloda aadittu, karthala enn nyabagam vanduda onakku
Rakshasaney!!" she cursed pulling away
(U dance with her all night and and think of me in the morning)
