rikara were on holiday in Thailand with their four kids. really rikara wanted time for each other but four kids….they were better off not getting their hopes up.
om: when will we get time to ourselves?
gauri: when you stop pampering mishti too much!
om: hey I don’t pamper her okay? don’t think I am viren and charan.
mishti: daddy, I want an ice cream shake.
om: ok misty, daddy will get you one.
mishti: and karan bauya is trying to wreck my hair.
om: karan, leave your sister’s hair alone.
karan: I wasn’t even doing anything.
om: so sorted your karan bhai, will get your shake, anything else?
om: ok, now you go.
mishti goes back to her brothers. om looks at gauri and realized what she meant.
gauri: I don’t remember when you actually said no to our six year old daughter. even when she was in my womb.
om: how can I say no to that cute face?
gauri: just like how you say no to me all the time. no this no that. it’s like you love mishti out of all of us.
om: don’t say anything about my daughter ok. besides I only have one favourite and you have three favourites meaning I don’t have to share attention, you do.
gauri: accha fine.
om: arre gauri, your feet are still swollen?
gauri: yes omkaraji, they are still swollen. I have tried everything. but from the last two months, they have been like this. this is the third month.
om: do one thing, get them checked by a doctor. maybe they’ll help.
mishti: meri ice cream shake?
om: getting it princess!
gauri: oh and by the way whilst you are getting your princess something, mind getting me some caramel brownies and vanilla ice cream?
om: only if you don’t vomit.
om goes to get his two ladies their stuff. mishti goes to gauri and hugs her tight.
gauri: what happened mishti?
mishti: those three monsters are making me in the middle to play catch and I too small.
gauri: aww meri princess. accha you can stay with mama.
mishti: yay! by the way you have gained weight.
gauri looks down at her stomach and groans.
gauri: you know mishti, mama is feeling very poorly these days.
mishti: I know.
gauri clutched her stomach in pain.
mishti: what happened?
gauri in mind: must be period cramps. (Talking to mishti) nothing mishti, just mama is in little pain. you know when mama gets her food, then she will be happy.
mishti: we share?
om came back and said: arre misty, I was about to call you. now what did your brothers do?
mishti: make me piggy in middle. I too short.
om: that’s mean. fine stay with us.
he gives his princesses their food.
mishti: daddy, mummy get pain in stomach.
gauri: no omkaraji that isn’t true. mishti is making it up.
om: oh hello gauri! I know my princess very well. she never lies.
he whispers in gauri’s ear: is it what I think it is?
gauri knew what he meant and whispered back: i’ll check.
