Leela woke up to shock and surprise at the sight of Sharanbir
She didnt want to make it known to Ashvin but the way Dadu was being with Ashvin was bothering her
Her mother was oblivious or pretended to be she didnt know which
"How are you?" he asked
She stretched her arms and twisted her neck back and forth
"I think I pulled a neck muscle" she groaned
Mandira nudged her to go chat with Sharanbir
"Jao beta, go talk to him
Trisha was trying to be of help, her usual role in any kitchen, scopping out dahi in a serving bowl, scooping out butter, melting it to room temperature
Getting pickles out of the frig
"Do u know how to make stuffed roti?" Dadu asked her
She shook her head
"Only round thing I make is dosa and eggs.. even that doesnt come round" she smiled sheepishly
Leela giggled hysterically
"OMG She is so honest"
"Tumhari tarah hai, kaam na karne ke pachaas bahane" Mandira scolded
Trisha didnt get that
Leela translated it for her much to Mandira's horror
"I tried many times, but I burn my fingers... so my Aanu said not to cook" she said earnestly
"If u live alone kaise khaogey aap?" Mandira asked proprietorially
"I can make eggs and rice and a ... umm two or three Konkani things" she said sadly
"thats not good no"
"i dont even know that Mum" Leela pointed
Mandira wasnt in the mood to diss her daughter in front of her FIL
"she is a PhD student Mandira beta.. she is studying" Dadu reminded
"So much studying" Mandira shook her head
She had hoped for a flaky superficial dimwit for a wife... or close... not someone that studied so much as to forget the surrounding
Trisha arranged the table
"Ashvin ko bulao beta" he told Leela
"I DONTTT want to see him in a towel... thats an image I can never unsee" she shut her eyes dramatically with her hand tried to sip her coffee and spilled over herself
Mandira was not happy
"I can go papaji... she is very playful"
"No I will send Trisha" he said smoothly
Trisha was trying to escape the kitchen that very second
"You are going Ms Shanbag, its only 20 extra steps for u" he did the math
"Good luck... u might have to burn your eyeballs" Leela mumbled
She nodded as she heard her chest thud making her way to Ashvin's room
she walked inside confidently
He was out in the balcony gulping down his now cold chai distastefully
He was surprised to see her show up near him like that
"U want to go bring the cat?" he grinned
"I only talk about cat?" she asked smiling
"seems like it" he grinned, scooting just enough so she could sit, and still rub against him
"I am not so slim" she pointed
"Thats all u get Trish" he warned
She sat tentatively
He yanked her towards his chest, letting his laptop slide off to his thigh
"I cant even see you" she said facing the direction he was
"Fiiine" he said moving to the deck chair by him
"What?" he asked
"Nothing... Dadu wants you to come out" she said
His smile vanished
"U are his messenger?" he demanded
"It was going to be Leela... she said she did not want to see u in a towel"
He chuckled, his expression softening
"Her PC crashed, she screamed last time, I walked over to see" he told her why Leela was so afraid
"Leela is funny" she smiled
"Shes my sister... so its fine" (if she does not want to see me in a towel)
"come no?" she demanded
"Is that invite from u or him"
"Him only" she smiled mischievously
"Doesnt he have enough entertainment?" he asked dryly
"Leela is there" Trisha was amused
"And my Mom.. she will say the most ridiculous things so he can have a change of heart" he said somberly
"So u wont eat?"
"Boy... are you insistent"
she laughed sheepishly
"did u make the food?"
"NOOO... umm.. only set the table"
"U shud cook for him" Ashvin said devilishly
"that is mean" she laughed softly her body shaking
He moved over to her deck chair pinning her down
"U have the softest skin... and I havent even seen 90% of you yet" he groaned in agony
The sun sparkled silver bright, white wispy clouds floated like torn silk ribbons... the downed shades on the awning only allowing her the view at the edges
"Maybe my hands only... maybe I am not soft" she gasped... trembling as he attempted to feel the inside of her arm..
"Ashwinnn" she ordered
He bend down and saw a sliver of buttery lusciousness crack open between the nightshirt and her loungepants.
She lay panting, as he bent down with a tantalizing growl, burying his face in the narrow band of flesh, rubbing his raspy chin on her belly button..
opening his mouth on her belly button... she arched groaning audibly.. begging him... trying to say his name her breath coming out in soft gasps
He heard many "Ahs"... , shivers of pleasure danced through her veins, when he lifted his head she moaned half in protest half in encouragement...
she reached out and felt his raspy chin... he let his cheek and chin rub all over her palm...
"Hate it?" he asked softly
"Its OK" she said weakly. He bend down to kiss her nose..
