Shivaay pulled Anika’s cheek and said “Thank you Anika for helping me.” “Welcome but don’t pull my cheeks, like this ! I feel like a baby.” Anika complained, thou she used to try this on Saahil as she considered him as his baby brother. “You are” Shivaay spoke, “my baby” his inner voice said. “I am feeling hungry now, will you not bring anything to eat for your boyfriend !” He further asked her teasingly. She smiled and went ahead to bring his espresso and some lip smacking sandwiches.
He was looking through the window wondering about his life. All was going well until she entered his life. Not that she made him uncomfortable, he gets very well along with her, no. It’s just that it became a little sophisticated. He made her pretend to be his girlfriend, but why did she agree ? They both have met just a few days ago and on his insistence she agreed !! He was still wondering when she kept the tray on the neatly furnished table.
All the co- workers were nowhere to be seen. She was going when he called her “Anika”. She turned to see him indicating to the other vacant chair that was begging to be occupied. She said ” Mr Oberoi, I am also very hungry. I have skipped my breakfast today, as I was again late. So I am gonna eat with my friends. They will be waiting for me. Till then some other person will be here to take charge. So I cannot sit here. I am really hungry.” She completed the last line being little embarrassed. Shivaay wanted her to sit with him so he thought of some thing. “Anika usually who takes the charge when you have gone for lunch ?” He inquired. “My boss.” She replied occasionally. “And where is he now ?” He asked naughtiness hidden in his eyes. He knew he will win this argument. “Ohh ! He has gone with his wife again to spend some quality time.” She replied sweetly, “thou he is a grumpy man, he does everything that a girl wishes and obeys his wife.” He said “Dont you think he will be angry if something goes wrong. I know he has some personal enmity with you.” He chuckled. She glared. “So I think you should sit here with me. This way you can eat and keep an eye also.” He finished. He prayed that his trick works. Anika was numb for some nanoseconds and then said “What an idea Sirji !” “Shivaay” he corrected. “You should call me Shivaay as now you are my girlfriend.” “Just pretending” she said. “Whatever !” He replied. She brought her eatables. Together they chatted with their mouths full. They were contented in their hearts.
He then drove to his office.
“Rudra bhaiya” Priyanka called his brother. “Maa is calling you.” She said breaking the threshold. He covered something with his hands in order to hide it. “Okay Prinku, I am coming in a minute You go.” He said. “Hmm” she said walking back wondering what he was doing.
“Yaay…” Rudra screamed. “Thank god its completed.” He headed towards his room. Sorry, ex room. Saumya was sitting there completing her assignments. She looked sad. Large books were kept in her study table making her look more studious. He stood beside her and tapped on her shoulder whispering Saumya. She looked around to see him. She continued doing her work ignoring him. He said “Listen to me once. You misunderstood me. I was just showing bhaiya to practice it in his life.” “Rudra, I don’t want to listen…..” She stopped as he handed her a card. She thought “Oh my God, rudra made it himself, I can’t believe.” The front page was there with a boy saying sorry with his hands on his ears and a girl with a cute yet strict face. The card was coloured nicely using not perfect but nice shades.Inside there was written :
Saumya, please yaar I am sorry. I know that you have misunderstood. I was just trying to help bhaiya. I did not do it deliberately. Believe me, please. I don’t want to lose you. A friend like you is really precious. You are the one who I look when I am stuck in my studies and you are the only one except my brothers who I can look upon and rely more than myself. I am sorry.
“See I have made you thin too.” He was going to point out, when she hugged him tightly. He caressed her hair. “Even I didn’t wanted to lose you Rudra, I was just scared. I am sorry, I overreacted.” She said sobbing. She was touched by his gesture. She knew he didn’t give give his time to study, still he made this precious card for her. “Its okay” he parted. “Let’s go, everyone is calling us.”
“Di, I am feeling very nervous. I don’t know if this is the right time. I…..I am very confused.” Priyanka spoke nervously. “Believe in yourself Prinku. Prinku Pehlwan is the strongest.” Tia spoke encouragingly. “Yess Prinku Pehlwal is the strongest” priyanka spoke continuously as she descended the stairs. “I….I want to say something.” She said to her whole family standing in front of her. Tia held her hand tightly. “I am in love with Ranveer. I want to marry him. Few days ago he proposed me. He is a very nice guy, believe me.” She completed in one breath. She looked at Shivaay Om and Rudra and said, “Bhaiya please.” “Okay. Anything for you Prinku. Your wish granted.” Shivaay spoke. Everyone smiled listening this.
Prinku was utterly in a state of shock. She never thought that they will agree so easily. And her brothers, also agreed, this was not less than a dream. She pinched herself numerous time still not believing. She was gonna pinch her the 8th time when Om stopped her. “Aare Prinku, don’t do like this. It will become red then it will not look good in marriage, na.” Om spoke to her disbelief. “No, she will still look the most beautiful.” Rudra joined. And then everybody started talking about her marriage from lehngas to bangles. Everything ! “1 minute !! I am not understanding anything. Will anyone please care to explain. Please.” Prinku requested. “Okay, I will explain.” dadi spoke.
“Actually the day Ranveer proposed you, you told Tia about the matter. And when you went to college, Tia came to us and explained us everything. We were not ready to accept but she made us.” Dadi spoke. “That’s why no one came to college, rudra, saumya and not even Ranveer.” Prinku got the answer today. “You don’t know Prinku, mujhe kitne papad belne pade for making them agree. Then we all went to Ranveer’s home and everything was finalised. And not that your brothers easily accepted….” she said eyeing them”….they took many tests of Ranveer and asked various weird and stupid questions.” Tia completed.” “And why we would have not done that, she is our one and only sister.” Shivaay hugged Priyanka. Priyanka’s eyes welled up seeing the love and affection of her family. She went towards Tia and hugged her tightly, very tightly and spoke “Thank you so much Di. Thank you.” She patted her back. “Now no rona-dhona (crying).” Rudra spoke frustrated. He was done with the crying now also and earlier also. He couldn’t see his dear ones crying.
“How do you want your wedding Prinku ?” om asked. “Destination wedding” prinku replied shyly. “Yaaay” rudra roared. “We will then go to Goa” Pinky exclaimed happily. “Bhaiya anika did will also be there na, she will be also gonna become our family.”rudra asked. How can he miss his partner in crime. ” Yeah ! And sahil too.” Shivaay spoke. “Gauri…” Om tried to speak. “Of course Om” Jahnvi said.
“Goa, we are coming.”
