Mandira left them alone strangely, after announcing to her son that his Dadu had lunch plans tomorrow
"I cannot go to dinner" Trisha told him sifting through her duffel bag
"Yes you can" he insisted
"I dont go to big places" she said nervously
"We will pick a lil one Trish" he said
She stood up after sifting through two times...
Grabbing a dress... her locks covering her face
"Ashwinn.. you can go and eat. I can make omelette" she said squirming
"Did she say something?"
"No... she said... she said it was dinner time also" she mumbled
"Well then... its settled
"Ashwinnn" she held his wrist as he turned to go
He grabbe dher hand and pulled her towards him
"I know... we have to talk... I am not even sure how this thing happened, we have to live together without figuring stuff out. I dont know if you still want to go back? I dont know if you are OK being here?"
She smiled softly
"This is just about dinner" she smiled
"Phew... so no meaning of life discussions then?" he grinned
"I dont even know the meaning of life" she said seriously, not getting his joke
"I bet you dont... " he muttered groaning at her innocence, bending down and kissing her lips
"What is that?" she asked
"Oh it just means... how many times I get to... ummm.. you know... how do I say this..." he searched for words that would convey his erotic thoughts gently
She listened carefully without any clue
"Umm.. you know... do we cuddle first and fight later... or fight first and cuddle?" he said exhaling, giving up
"Why?" she asked
"I am going to help answer all your "Whys" lets go" he whispered
"Uh... I dont have very fancy clothes"
"Shucks... umm... lets see... he grabbed the dress from her hand, it was a simple chiffon midi dress with daisies all over.
"Ashwinnn" "Give my dress back" she warned
"I love how you scold me" he chuckled the dress high up in the air
He dodged her grab as they chased each other around the room
She panted and heaved trying to get to him, jumping on to the bed, running on it, finally grabbed the dress off his hand (only because he let it go)
He hugged her waist and lifted her off the bed
Slowly letting her slide down
"You trouble me a lot" she said in clear simple English
He threw his head back and laughed
"You thot life with me wud be easy huh?" he grinned, eyes sparkling
"You also trouble your sister?" she asked
"ask her" he urged
"Yes? no?" Maybe?" he asked
"i dont know her" she said
He pulled his phone out and dialed Leela
"Did you tell Mom I cant see Manav?" Leela shrieked
He cringed shutting his eyes... making a funny face, holding the phone away from his ear
Trisha watched in awe, how the siblings interacted
"Why?" he asked softly
"Mom has the most RIDICULOUS rules for me... it could have only been because of you DIRTBAG" she shrieked
"Hey... shhh... lee... do you wnat to talk to Trish... Trisha?" he asked holding the phone in front, hitting the speaker
"Oh yeah, I ll talk.. sure... shoreee why not" she was pissed
"Trisha, Leela... leela trisha.." he said holding Trisha's wrist in a firm grip
"All I can say is I AM SO SO SORRY for you. You have to live with this FUN KILLER... HE IS SELFISH AND HOGGISH AND MEAN AND EGOISTICAL AND NARROW-MINDED DUDE. GOOD LUCK"
Ashvin grinned wide...
Trisha looked shocked
"Lee tone it down a bit will you?"
"Dar laga? Sach keh rahi hoon main" she said defiantly
"Do you want to say something Trisha?" he asked
"Uh... um.. do u live in Delhi?"
"OH YEAH... I could never breathe the same air the... umm... arghhh.. umm.. this man does" she shouted
"Oh boy" Ashvin tried to look sad
"Main aapko keh rahi hoon.. BTW My Mom said you have pretty skin" she said innocently
Trisha blushed... lowering her gaze self consciously as if Leela was staring at her even tho it was a audio only call
"Oh... thanks" she mumbled
"Kya lagati hain aap?" she asked
"Umm... just things I buy from the medical shop near my house in Ullal"
"I HATE MY SKIN... sorry I hate Ashvin more" she said conclusively
Trisha looked up at Ashvin
He let his shoulders slump mock defeatedly
"Just tell him I will be watching him... if he ever tries to be mean to you. Just call me... if he ever tries to push his orthodox sanctimonious bullshit on you. I can protect you" Leela said
"Thanks" Trisha muttered confused
"I didnt say a word to Manav, Lee" Ashvin attempted to defend himself
"Pffftt...I wasnt born yesterday" said the young girl all knowingly, trying to sound innocent, but the almost teen like voice displaying her innocence
