How difficult was it to say a sorry, Naira wondered. Two simple words. I'm sorry. 4 syllables. And it had taken her more than a week to get those 2 words out!
Irritated with herself, she put the spoon on the table with a loud clang, startling mishti, "nothing" she muttered under her breath as mishti returned to her dinner.
She could have even said it today, it was the perfect opportunity. Lost in her thoughts she twirled the spoon in her subji idly, as she thought back to that afternoon.

Naira looked up at Rose bhabhi, modelling another wedding gown.
" Well...?" Rose urged, waiting for Naira's reply. Naira bit her lip, honestly she didn't know what to think. Sure, it looked nice. But so did the previous four gowns she had tried on.
"bhabhi..." she trailed off, not sure what to say, but before she could say anything, her cousin answered for her
" wow!! Bhabhi this is so beautiful!"
Mishti came rushing inside, visibly excited, and quickly gave rose a hug. Naira smiled, Mishti was like that. Bundle of energy. Had always been. When she had gotten back home. Singhania mansion, naira corrected herself. When she had gotten back to Singhania mansion, she had noticed mishti was a bit Dull. Not herself, like she had forgotten to be the little girl she was.

But not now, Naira thought, as a smile spread over her face as she saw mishti gushing over the gown, chattering away and laughing.
Now she was the old mishti again. And that was because of -
It seemed as if the air in the room suddenly changed. Naira straightened. She didn't need to turn around to know he was here.
"Kartik" she muttered under her breath, turning around slowly.
This was originally planned as a OS, but not able to post it at the same time, so splitting it into multiple parts. So calling it a SS
plot is taking off from the current story, with naira trying to apologize for what she said.
1. OK my phone is just dying out on me so I gotta stop It here!!
2. Just getting back to writing after long, so writing still rusty but I tried to do my best.
3. This is planned entirely from Naira's pov. If you would like kartik's pov too let me know.
Thank you. Sorry, but I usually do not keep a PM list. I post from my phone (my toddler doesnt let me use the computer without taking away a dozen keys first) so its a little difficult for me to send PM.
If you could just check back to this thread it would be great!!
