1

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.

one day:

beach:

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?

mishti: no.

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.

just then…

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.

gauri: ok.

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.

gauri: ok.

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.

gauri: ouch!

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?

gauri: ok.

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.

om: what?

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.
