Sumona relaxes her body sitting inside the car ..silently keeps looking outside through the window ..Ali is observing her , he had never seen her like this ..she is always a chatterbox on set ...after quite a time of uninterrupted silence .he asks her slowly .."keya huya tujhe ,mujhse Abhi bhi gussa hai keya ? Sorry sumona, really really sorry ,mujhe bilkul aisa bolna Nai chahiye tha "
Ali stumbles while he guessed something is very wrong watching her pale face in the light of roadside neons ..he parks his car aside with a strong vibration all of a sudden ..
"Sumona you ok? "He blurts while he knew she is definitely not ok..
She doesn't speak ...She bites her tongue, trying to hold the tears that threatened to leave her eyes. And that's when She couldn't hold them back. First, one small crystal bead escapes from her right eye, sliding down her cheek, and rolling off her chin. Then another. And another. Her eyes flood with them, coming like a rainfall. Sniffing every ten seconds, they fall, and fall, and She let them.
Ali gets shocked with this unexpected breakdown ...he jerks her awake with violent shaking .".keya huya tujhe ..sumona ?keya huya ..he panicked kisine kuch kaha ?kapil ? "
She nods head no ..finally looks up , wiping away tears ..stained face ..glistening in the light ,bouncing sadness through the atmosphere ..
"Kuch Nai bhai .., kuch Nai .. , it's all my fault ..kisine kuch Nai kiya ,I am wrong ."
"Keya Bol rahi hai tu ?"Ali asks with a clueless face .
She doesn't answer..."please abhi chale?I am very tired "
Ali understands there is no use forcing her , he agrees "haan chal ",he keeps his hand affectionately on her head covering her ear, " kuch Nai huya .shant ho ja ..hota hai kabhi kabhi aisa ..everything will be alright.."
He could see her sparkling eyes while looking at mirror ..she sighs ,wipes her face with a tissue and sits again like a statue till they reach her home .
Sumona gets down ..she smiles after a long time looking inside ,"thank you bhai for being there always ,a small request ,please kisiko bhi batana maat jo kuch bhi huya aaj"
"Arre mere bacha, bilkul Nai batayunga. , and u can always share with me anything , anytime ..abhi thik feel kar rahi hai?" .Ali replies back with a thumbs up ..
Sumona smiles a little , replies "Haa bhai abhi bilkul thik hu ..bye , good night" and walks to home..
Sumona is getting ready for bed ..while her cellphone's ring pierced the silence ..she could see the name flashing .." Sharmaji" her heart rose to her throat ..she doesn't pick up ...it stops and rings again and again she can't hold back anymore and grasped the phone ..she said "Hello " her voice sounded breathless and strained to herself ..
Her pulse skipped hearing his voice ..like echoes across a canyon that familiar voice reverberated through the line ..Kapil !
"Keya huya tujhe ? What's wrong ! "
..."nothing "...she pretends to sound normal as much as she can . ,,"ghar a gayi hu.myjhe keya hoga "..she tries to get her thoughts together ...
"Acha!"he pauses a minute and " main a jayu tere ghar ? Bahoot yaad a raha hai teri ." .his voice melts her from inside ..
What ! She crumbled into her bed ,clutched her chest to calm the thudding that felt as if it would break her ribs .."naiii" with a faint voice she wheezes ..
He laughs knowing how she could have reacted there ..".Arre mazak kar raha hoon ,keya ho Gaya tujhe ?"
He continues "Sun na ek good news hai ..bahoot hi bada news for our whole team ..but abhi kisiko bhi Nai pata ..I want to share with you first ..Kaal shoot pe "..
Sumona gets conscious "keya news! aise bolne se mujhe neend nai ayega..please bolo.."
"Nai Nai Abhi Nai ..samne batana hai mujhe Abhi so ja..good night anddd."
He takes a pause ...a well known silence spreads across the way
She adds "bye "
He doesn't cut the call ..
"Kuch bolna tha keya "..sumona curses herself for asking this like an idiot
"Haa bolna tha na"
"Keyah!" Her heart beating fast ..
"I love you ! And you know that !"
Sumona felt a wild sensation running through her body making her unable to move ,.
Kapil could feel her warmth from far there ..he makes it more difficult for her..."kuch kuch hota hai jaaneman"..
She felt a lump stuck in her throat with overwhelming emotions burning her all determinations,desires ,decisions ,dilemmas into parts ...she just says with shaking voice "I love you too .abhi so jao" ..
"Then promise kar Kaal set pe aake sabse pehle mujhe milegi "
"Ohh kapil! Abhi Ye keya hai ..ok ok I will .."
"Ok ! ..bye then ,meri sapno me maat aana ab I need to sleep" he laughed loud
"Huh! How cheesy is that " she couldn't stop laughing,bye good night
"Ok bye tomorrow meet me as soon as you reach "
She cuts call ...her all agony ,all pain all anxiety he just swept them away ..that's him ..he can brighten up anything ..any damn gloomy thing !
Suddenly her eyes find a message alert on phone screen ,a sms from preeti...she didn't get a chance to check it with so many things happening around...she reads it fast ..
"Sumo baby tried to reach you but you were unavailable .i need to talk to you very urgent and very confidential !..Kaal sabse pehle mujhse milna set pe ..i am so excited !love you ..x0xo ..Teri preeto "
Sumona felt totally blank after reading this ..one of her best pal on set ..She had never met such a hard working ,loving and caring girl in life ..she has done a lot for her ,Kapil and show ..without her their show is nothing .whatever stardom and shine of success they are enjoying all thanks to her creativity ..She always feels so much gratitude that she got a friend like preeti...
Her body was not able to take anymore stress .diving down into ocean of thoughts she gives up ..
Morning time in cnwk set ...everybody getting ready for shoot ..sonam and fawad khan coming for khubsurat promotion ..neeti is too happy and can't stop her excitement ..she is almost moving around like a jumping bunny ..
Sumona comes out from her vanity van...she is wearing a beautiful pink designer saree with golden knotted blouse ...she got ready early today ..her heart is banging like a hammer since morning ..she is feeling so restless ...she moves forward to set but suddenly preeti comes and hugs her tight.
Sumona also hugs her back tight ..."keya hai madam itna excited ? "
"Abhi batati hoon...padh edhar Nai .."
"Ohh itna secret keya hai"
"Chup..kuch surprise hai .. thode der me main teri van me aake batati hoon ..tu udhar hi ruk..mujhe thoda ek Kaam hai abhi aayi .."
"Haa ok..no probs ..main hoon.."
She starts walking to her van ...on her way back she stops... infront of Kapil' s van ..she remembers yesterday night convos..how she promised him to meet ..she stands there struggling with her emotions.
Suddenly from nowhere some fans surrounded her for taking pictures and autographs..this is very common on set but today she is in no mood to mingle with fans ..her heart skipping in anxiety thinking what can be these two surprises ...
She stands at his van door ..without caring about fans ,without realizing media could be there ,without seeing outside..without analyzing consequences..she just knocks ..Kapil !
Fans keep asking for one autograph..one picture ..they are so sweet ..she feels so shameful she is not able to entertain them ..one Bengali girl seemed desperately pushing others for a picture..
Sumona was about to agree but the thought of taking a picture infront of kapil's van immediately stopped her approach ...
Suddenly door opens and she gets dragged inside ...ahhh...She sighed softly, her hands resting on his shoulders ... Heat radiated off his body, drenching her even though they were separated by mere inches. Awareness flowed through her, awareness of herself, awareness of him. There was desire, an emotion she had come to associate with him, and she could feel it throbbing deep within her stomach. At first he had been her friend, and she had denied the attraction she held for him, the love that gripped her. He is so irresistible and that had always intimidated her. So beautiful. What would he see in her? She loved him but she was a realist, knowing that he saw her as someone to trust and confide in. Never anything more. It hurts,but it was a pain that she kept silent.
But she had been unprepared against the smoldering heat of his gaze whenever he looked at her ...those eyes intense and dark. She was helpless against the casual touches where heat sparked and flamed, her skin burning from the brush of his fingertips. She was aware, always so aware, her body traitorous as it succumbed to the heat of his eyes and fingers again and again.
He wanted her.The thought was always so explosive, so unbelievable.He kept looking her ,her beautiful eyes .she is looking ravishingly beautiful in that golden blouse and pink saree ..her hairs..hands ..neck ..her smell ,her smile make him wild and crazy ..
Heat that captivated her, the intense want radiating from them as he looked at her. He held her waist captive as he raised his other hand, cupping her jaw, his thumb brushing across her lower lip. For a moment, she thought he is going to kiss her, and in the back of her mind, she knew she wouldn't stop him, couldn't stop him. Her breathing slowed, unable to look away from those eyes, and she felt him tense near her. He wanted to kiss her, he was going to kiss her, and she felt her eyelids growing heavy.
His sudden grin surprised her, wholly masculine and too enticing for her fast beating heart to handle. She looked away ,turns her face ..absently trying to tug her waist from his grasp. He tightened his hold, his other hand slipping into the thick dark brown waves of her hair that tumbled down her back in casual disarray.
"Good Morning to you baby," he said, his deep voice laced with distinct amusement.
"Good morning to you too " she replies " Dekho Maine promise ki thi Kaal bas isiliye a gayi Subah" she murmurs
"Jhoot ! Tum mujhe dekhe bina reh hi nai pate ho, man kyu Nai lete" she is so caught in his eyes ..
She knows he is speaking every bit of truth but she tries to divert his mind ."bahaar kitne log khare hai ,pata Nai Wo keya soch rahe hai ..Acha keya hai good news abhi to batao..please I can't wait more " ..she tries hard to move her hands ..
She flushed as he snuggled closer to her, his movements pressing her body against his. There was heat, intense and comforting,and she could smell him, intoxicating and sensual.
