Ek Duje Ke Liye – Shivika FF by lijince (Part IV)

Hi Ishqbaazians…am back with the 4th episode of EDKL Shivika FF…thank you for all the good comments on the previous episode….I am sorry that I am posting the episodes a little late….but believe me, I really want to post them once in 2 days…but due to my work and household chores not able to focus in my writing and hence the delay….please bear with me!! Ok so no more bhak-bhak….here goes the episode…
Oberoi Mansion…

Evening….
So much of movement in Oberoi house….some guests have come….
(Friends….I belong to Kerala in South India….a place where there are very less prewedding ceremonies….From watching Hindi serials I understand that there are some rituals that are essential in any Hindu wedding – Haldi, Mehendi and Sangeet – but here already the Sangeet part is over…..my friends please tell me if Haldi and Mehendi can be held after Sangeet….These ceremonies were not shown in the serial also….I really don’t understand how rich families like Oberois can neglect such ceremonies….but I imagine that atleast guests will be there…like close friends and relatives…..after all it’s a wedding house yaar!!)
Dadi, Tej-Janvi, Shakthi-Pinky, Prinku-Sumo are all well dressed and busy with the guests…..OmRu are also busy with their friends….taking selfies and scrutinizing the beautiful girls among the guests!!

Shivaye is in his room in a video call with some client….even though Pinky and OmRu told him a couple of times to come down and attend the guests Shivaye was least bothered and decided to stay in his room as much as possible….
“OK Mr. Murthy…..mail me the presentation at the earliest possible….I want this merger to happen soon after my wedding…..so you have less time left….see you soon!”
Shivaye ends the video call and walks in the room…he reaches the space facing the poolside….he stops walking and looks into the water….so many of his special moments with Anika flashes in his mind….he smiled at those memories…..

Shivaye’s inner voice: Shivaye Singh Oberoi….you are in great trouble now…. the strong Shivaye Singh Oberoi is no longer able to hide his feelings for Anika…..you can’t see Anika’s pain….but you don’t leave any chance to hurt her feelings…..you have insulted her not just once or twice…..several times….but Anika…..she keeps coming back to you….solving your problems….saving your family in dangers….saving the family name and reputation…..saving you from going to jail….and now even after knowing all these feelings for one another, she is in your house taking care of the wedding arrangements….she neither complained to you nor stepped away from her responsibility….and you ignored her feelings….you didn’t even care for what she told about Tia…..instead you wanted to believe Tia’s words…..why Shivaye why? Because Tia is a deal for you….and you don’t want to lose it at any cost…..you don’t care what is Tia’s truth…you can’t lose Tia because you can’t lose the deal…..how selfish you are Shivaye…..

Shivaye closes his eyes and takes a deep breath….
But deep inside a tiny weak voice tells him that Shivaye wanted to see Anika….he wanted to tell her that that day when he asked Anika if she will marry Daksh, he didn’t do it out of his will but due to Daksh’s compulsion…he didn’t want Anika to think that Shivaye wants to get rid of Anika and that’s why he was helping Daksh….he wanted to tell Anika that he didn’t like Daksh’s closeness to Anika…..he didn’t want Anika to say ‘Yes’ to Daksh’s proposal…..and how relieved and happy he was when Daksh told him she said ‘No’ to his proposal…..he wanted to think that Anika will not have any other man in her life other than Shivaye….but he knew that he is not being fair with Anika….Anika Anika Anika…..what is happening with you Shivaye??
Suddenly, he had a strange feeling…..he sensed Anika’s presence…..he turned around to see Anika turning back from the door…..he felt like his heart beats were faster….Anika….he called while hurrying towards the door….
Anika stopped…..”Oh s***t….what have I done?? Now he will ask me why I came and I have no reason….how can I tell him that I just wanted to know if he is ok….he looked tensed from morning….”
“Yes Anika….what happened?” Shivaye asked

Anika: Wo…mein…I…downstairs everybody is asking for you….Dadi, Aunty and all….the guests are leaving…..so I came to…..
Shivay: Hmmm….shall I drop you home? It’s late and it looks like it will rain….
Anika: No…not needed….I will manage….
Shivay: Oh…ok….I should have guessed that….
Anika: What?
Shivaye: That you are going with Daksh…
Anika gives a sharp look at Shivay….”What is your problem Shivay? If I going alone then you have a problem….if I am going with Daksh then also you have a problem….what is it? I can’t understand if you are having a problem with me or with Daksh…And remember, you asked me first to marry Daksh….now when I am trying to work out with this relationship, you should be happy….isn’t it?
Shivay: No…that’s not the thing….how will I explain it to you?
Anika: Okay….now I understand…it’s the same reason right? You don’t want your friend to marry a middle-class girl without surname, blood, lineage etc. Shivaye, I am not the one who started all this…you knew my feelings…atleast I thought so….but you have to hurt me every time…probably that makes you happy….
Tears start to roll down her eyes….without looking at Shivay she goes….
Shivaye wanted to stop her but he was lost somewhere….trying to take in what Anika said….”you have to hurt me every time…probably that makes you happy…” Shivaye felt his heart ache….
Anika was walking on the road thinking about Shivay’s behavior and convos in the last 2-3 days….why is Shivay making it difficult for me? I don’t want to interfere in his life….but I don’t want him to marry a girl like Tia….instead he thinks that I am obsessed with him and creating stories so that I can stay close to him….he thinks I can stoop to such level…..this cannot be the man I love….how did I fall for him??
Anika could not control her tears…just then her phone rang….it was Mallika…
Anika wiped her tears and answered the phone: Hi Mallika….I couldn’t call you….sorry….I will be reaching home soon…tell me what’s the matter?
Mallika: Nothing serious dear….it’s just that yesterday I told you to think about Daksh and move on in life…..well, now I feel maybe you should take your time…..you hardly know Daksh….and then Sahil also has to accept him na?? So, don’t make any decisions now….ok Anika?

Anika: Okay…..actually I have not yet thought about Daksh’s proposal….I don’t think I am prepared for marriage right now….I have to look after Sahil’s education and all….so I don’t know if I am ready for a marriage….
Anika was crossing the road and she didn’t realize a van coming towards her in high speed….before she could move somebody lifted her and put her on the footpath…her phone falls down and she turns to see her savior…Shivay was standing beside her still holding her tightly around her waist….
O Jaana….

Shivay: Can’t you see Anika….how can you be so careless while crossing the road….what were you thinking??
Anika stood still trying to figure out what happened….
Shivay: What….you are okay Anika? He held her shoulders….
Anika nods her head and steps back to free herself from his strong hands…he holds her hand, picks up the phone and gives a sharp look….”Come I will drop you….” He drags her to his car without waiting for her reaction….Anika follows him….
Shivaye keeps Anika’s phone in his pocket and starts the car….
On reaching Anika’s house Shivaye hurriedly steps out of the car and runs to open the door for Anika…but Anika had already stepped out….
Careful…Shivaye says…
Anika gives a soft look and says…”I am fine Shivay….you don’t have to worry…I can manage!”
Shivaye steps back and closes the door….
Anika: I think you should leave…Good night!
Shivay: Ya…I will leave….Good night!
He moves towards the other side. “Shivaye….” Anika calls him….he stops and turns back to see Anika….Anika was looking at him…”Thank you”……Shivaye contains his smile….they share an eyelock….
Shivaye: You are sure na that you are fine Anika??

Anika nods her head…Shivaye gets in the car and goes….Anika leaves…
At Oberoi Mansion, Shivaye asks one of his staff to come to his room…..he takes Anika’s phone and gives it to his staff…”Rohit, I need all information on all incoming calls to this phone in the past week…try to get me as much information as possible from all the unknown numbers…and you have got 24 hours! No excuses…got it?”
“Yes Sir….” the staff leaves his room
Shivaye thinks for a while and then leaves his room.

Next morning….Oberoi Mansion…
Anika is busy making sure that all the lightings are proper, and other flower arrangements are finished….Dadi, Pinky, Janvi, Prinku and Sumo are discussing about what all to be done for the Haldi function that will be held next day….each one expresses their opinion on the rituals to be done….OmRu also join them….Rudra asks about the importance of Haldi for bridegroom…Dadi explains him about the function….Shivaye is standing upstairs and watching all this happening in the hall…..once in a while he will secretly eyeing Anika…..Anika is seen giving some instructions to the servants to check the lighting at the main door and around the house….Prinku comes to Anika…
Prinku: Anika….where is your phone? Forgot at home?

Anika remembers searching for the phone at home in the morning…she even scolded Sahil for playing with her phone….but now she remembered that yesterday night Mallika was the last person to call her….soon after the call that car came to hit and then Shivaye was there….probably the phone is at that spot or maybe in Shivaye’s car….
“Anika what are you thinking?? Mallika has tried calling you several times…as she couldn’t reach you she called me….she’s on hold Anika….take it….” Prinku gives her the phone….
Anika takes the phone from Prinku….
“Where have you been Anika?? I have been calling many times….yesterday night the call got cut in the middle…and then you didn’t call me…I tried but it was switched off….Is everything fine?”

Anika sees Shivaye….”Hmmm….will tell you when we meet….I am fine….nothing to worry….are you coming today?”
Mallika: Prinku told me tomorrow is haldi ceremony….and she asked me to join for the dance practice….Sid is not here….and I am feeling bored…..I think I will come!
Anika: Yes….you should come….I have arranged a choreographer….and he will be coming now….(Anika remembers something and presses her forehead…) Actually I have to make a call to him to remind him to come today!! So you will be coming na?? It will be fun….See you soon….bye….
She ends the call and checks her diary for some phone no….she dials the number….’tera dyan kidhar hain….tera hero idhar hain….’ She hears the callertune….”Pick the phone hero”…..Anika murmurs….

After few seconds, the call is answered….Anika doesn’t wait to say or hear Hello….”Where are you?? I told you to be here by 1oa.m. not 10 p.m…..are you coming or not?? What you are in Oberoi Mansion?? (Anika moves towards the door) See, don’t think that you can say anything and escape from me….I think you don’t know much about me…..I will come searching for you no matter wherever you are…”
“Madamji….Aap mujhe wahan dhoond rahein hain aur Main aapka yahan intezaar kar raha hoon….” A manly voice fills in the room…..everybody in the hall looks towards the main door…..
Shivaye was about to make a call when he heard the voice….he also looks towards the door…..a tall man is standing in front of the Buddha-like statue…facing towards the statue with folded hands…..

Anika reaches near the door…”Hey…hello….stop your dialoguebaazi and come inside….or should I do aarti for you?” she steps on some wire and slips….the tall man leaps forward and gets hold of Anika….Anika lies with closed eyes…..
Everyone in the hall are watching all this….Shivaye’s eyes are on the tall man….eyeing him from hair to toe…..the tall man carries Anika in his hands and enters the house….everyone and Shivaye looks at him!! Anika opens her eyes and finds that she is being carried by ‘somebody’…..she also looks at him!!

Precap: All ladies and OmRu are dancing with the new hero…..the new boy asks Anika to join them….the song “Khaike paan banaras wala……” plays….Anika walks away from the dance and collides with Shivaye…..

    So friends….how was it?? Hope you enjoyed this episode….as I told you earlier I am taking it slow…so it can be quite boring…..And any guesses on the ‘new boy’….well, some of you had suggested Rahat from Qubool Hai and Siddharth from Jamai Raja…my friends suggested me names of Mantu from Tere Shehar Main and Kunal Karan Kapoor from Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha….but I have selected none of them….

    I didn’t want Rahat because he is equally handsome as Shivaye….then, for Sidharth from JR…somehow I can’t imagine Ravi and Surbhi together….Mantu will be too innocent for a choreographer and Kunal Karan Kapoor also didn’t fit with Anika in my imagination…
    So this new boy is not so handsome but still has pretty cool looks and bindass attitude like our Anika….he was there in Begusurai in &tv….let me see how many of you will guess him right?? 😀 😀 😀

    And friends, as usual, please please please give in your comments – positive and negative….I really need them….please feel free to tell me if the storyline needs improvement and sorry for the typo errors and grammatical mistakes!

    Hoping that you enjoyed the episode….thank you very much for reading!! Love you all….will be back asap! Tc…

      No dear….definitely not Ahem Sharma….as I have told in the comments section this new guy is not as handsome as Shivaye….but is super cool and with bindass attitude…..Ahem Sharma is very handsome like Shivaye…I don’t want to put Anika in confusion… 😀 😀 😀
