Episode 7 – Part 3
Viplav : I will get freshened up and come back.
Kanak : Ok!
Viplav reaches the bedroom door. It was that same one, the one he used to share with his Dhaani, on their first days of marriage life. The same decorations and lights he made for her queen beautifying the architecture, and bringing that essence of his love for her.
He gets in closing the door behind him and falls on Dhaani and Dhanush laughing and playing while changing his dirty dresses, Dhaani sit on the bed and the baby boy standing in front of his mother. A broad smile on his lips, he leans slightly on the wall, arms crossed, and admires the adorable scene.
Dhaani : (the dress finally worn) Hmm! Now where is mumma’s (indicating her cheek, her index on it) kissie? Baby didn’t give a kiss to mumma since morning.
Dhanush doesn’t even hesitate for a second and sticks his soft lips on his mumma’s cheek. Viplav, who was in full admiration, stands straight and goes to them.
Viplav : And Papa also!
Dhaani doesn’t get enough time to have a look at her mad husband that he suddenly drops off his own lips mark on that same cheek of hers while Dhaani, surprised, widely opens her eyes. He finally gets off her leaving a freezed woman who slowly turns her head to look at him.
Viplav : Done! (broadly smiles)
Her poor face get reddish as he was staring at her with his smile that could kill any girl in the world.
Dhaani : (whispers) Viplav!
She eyes him the little boy standing next to them while Viplav laughs discretely.
Viplav : (teasing tone) So what if he is here?
Dhanush : If you both need privacy, then please do not hesitate on telling me. I would go.
And he runs away from there, leaving his cute lovebirds, as he knew his papa so well and that he might not finish for now. Once back on her senses, Dhaani gets ready to stand up to follow his steps, when she gets stopped by his hand grip. She turns to look at her smiling hubby.
Dhaani : Mister! I think we have to go down. Dhanush & Daadi will be waiting for us.
But, contrary to her thoughts, he expressed seriousness on his face, standing up. He holds her hand tightly, his eyes facing the floor.
Viplav : (looks again at Dhaani) Are you… ok ?
Dhaani : Haan. Why are you asking me this?
Viplav : I don’t know why, but today I feel you quite upset and lost in thoughts. What happened ?
The sound of coins being shaken in a silver plate rings her memories while she was staring at him.
Again on their drive back home, waiting for the traffic signals to be green, Viplav was on full conversation with Dhanush, while the mother was looking at her two men with a smile. Suddenly she turns her head and falls on the outside view. Her eyes suddenly get widened, and opening softly her mouth, she lets some sudden tears falling down, witnessing a little girl child on the roads begging to people bigger than her for some money or food. Dhaani gets flooded into emotions before this scene. Her heart just wanted to run to that child and give her a hug. Suddenly she sees an elder woman, with that same allure coming close to the child holding a small baby in her arms, sitting next to the girl.
Girl : Mah, I am hungry.
The poor mother gets out a small bun in her hand and gives to the craving child, satisfying her own hunger seeing her kid smiling, still looking at the scene, feels upset and again looks straight. Viplav, who was still conversing noticed her saddened expression.
Viplav : Dhaani! What happened?
Dhaani looks at her caring husband with a fake smile.
Dhaani : Nothing. I am fine.
Viplav : (smiles) Ok.
End of flashback
A tear rolls down on her cheek which tenses the caring husband. He puts his hand on her shoulder and asks for an explanation.
Viplav : Dhaani! Why are you crying ?
Dhaani : (gets awake and wipes her tear) Nothing. (searching for a reasonable excuse) I… I was just missing Maai.
Viplav : (laughs) Mad girl! When you have (covers her shoulders with his arms) such a (gets his head closer to hers at each word) caring, loving, handsome husband and the most adorable and cutest son next to you, you are crying thinking about khakhi.
Dhaani : (smiles) Leave that. I just…
Viplav : (cups her face, with a loving tone) Hey! Dont be sad na. Otherwise I will start crying also.
Dhaani : (back on her senses, giggling) Actually, I am not mad, but you. Still a child inside.
Viplav : Haan! (looks at her lovingly) But this child knows to do (forces the tone) loads of things.
Dhaani : (laughs shyly) I know!
Viplav : And … (reassuring tone) don’t worry, we will meet khakhi very soon, after the functions.
Dhaani nods her head convincing him she was ok.
The family members were joined together for breakfast. Dhanush sit on a chair in between his parents, was fed quietly by his mother while Viplav was looking at him with a smile, having his own breakfast.
Viplav : (talks to the little boy) Is it yummy ?
Dhanush : (looks at his papa) A lot.
Viplav : Then congratulate your mumma, because she has made it.
Dhanush : I know that papa. (looks at his mother) I know mumma’s cooking very well. (looks again at Viplav) You don’t worry.
Dhaani giggles while Viplav stares at her angrily.
Daadi : Dhaani betha!
Dhaani turns to look at Daadi after feeding the bite of paratha in her hand to Dhanush.
Sushma : Eat something. You didn’t touch your food.
Viplav looks at Dhaani’s plate and notices it was full.
Viplav : (swallowing) Arey haan Dhaani! Eat something. (brings Dhanush’s place close to him) I will continue with Dhanush.
Dhaani : It’s ok Viplav! I will eat later after feeding Dhanush. And by the way, I am not really hungry.
Sushma : How can’t you be ? You didn’t eat anything since morning.
Kanak : Mahji, leave it!
Dhaani looks at her.
Kanak : If she is not hungry, then let her go.
Viplav : Alright! You keep feeding the child, and I will feed you.
Dhaani widens her eyes and slightly opening her mouth, goes backwards, while the innocent child was smiling big.
Dhaani : No no no ! I am ok. (looks at Daadi) Daadi, please tell him that I am fine. (looks at Viplav) Viplav… I promise. I will eat once Dhanush finishes.
Viplav : (points his plate) Have you seen his plate ? If you will wait, then be ready to wait for hours.
Dhaani : He is a child Viplav, it will take time na. And … I am fine. Not really hungry.
Viplav : At least let me continue feeding him na.
Dhaani : Viplav! First finish your breakfast. (teasing expression) And women in the house always eat after men and children. So I just follow that rule.
Viplav : But I won’t let MY wife follow that ok? Beacuse MY wife, MY rules, MY orders!
Dhaani : (frowns her brows) Oh! Stop giving your manly orders to wife. You are just the typical …
Dhanush : (eyes closed and shouts) AREY! (looks again at his mother) Mumma, if you have finished arguing with papa, then please give me my spoon. I can eat on my own.
Dhaani and Viplav look at each other and, embarrassed of their childish nok-jhoks, calm down and sits properly on their seats.
ViDha : Sorry!
Seeing the cute naughtiness of the young family, Daadi gets a broad smile, while Kanak makes some annoyed expressions.
Viplav : By the way, when is Daadaji coming back ?
Daadi : Don’t worry, he will be back for tomorrow.
Dhanush : Mumma!
Dhaani : Yes betha!
Dhanush : I am done. Can I go outside to play ?
Dhaani : Not now betha! Mumma & Papa haven’t finished, and you can’t go out alone na ? Go upstairs in the bedroom, I have brought your favorite games.
Dhanush : Yaaay! Thank you mumma.
He gets off his chair and runs to the bedroom.
Dhaani : (looking at Dhanush going) Careful betha! (looks at Daadi) By the way Daadi! At what time will Pankaj bhaiyaa & Shalu come here?
Shalini : We are here bhabhi!
Precap – Mystery to be revealed in the next chapter.
Thanks for reading! Keep commenting and telling your views.
Hey lovely IKRS family pellows! How are you all? Hope you are all doing well?
First sorry : sorry for having written a long part. I dont know if people like or not, so sorry. But I can tell you that I love that. Especially when it’s a story that I would be be waiting for ages.
Second sorry : I am actually sorry because I have had this part ready for long but still didn’t post. Why ? Because I am literally being pagal in my mind… No but seriously. I could have posted it earlier but got busy with college.
Anyhow! Finally finished 7 chapters!! My goodness I am feeling so happy. 7 chapters means 21 posts of IKRS – An Imaginary Fan Fiction.
I cant believe it has gone so far. Recently I was reading the story from the beginning and I was like “Did I really write all this?” I was completely stunned! xD
But here we are. And chapter 8 is also on the progress of its second part. And I don’t think I will post only IKRS-AIFF parts. So that I could take time to shape up everything.
And I recently got a new concept thanks to a close friend of mine, a kind of mutifandom story about college life. I won’t post it I think because I dont want to mix other stars with IKRS family members but it was juts to tell you that I am having so many fictions in mind and in pending that once I get inspiration for one, I start writing that story and I concentrate on the other ones only when I am not inspired on a story. I have basically 8 draft pages on my mailbox that I daily use. I am literally pagal…
I don’t even know why I am blabbering this much right and wasting your precious time. Once I hold this keyboard, I just start typing, typing, and typing… Sorry for this loooooong message. It’s not going to change your life so dont read it. You might be thinking “Why is she telling this after we read all?” right now.
Thanks for reading once again. Let’s meet on my next post.
PS : For those I couldnt comment yet, I have read all the stories but just got my computer in hand and being free, I will comment. Pakka!
With lots of love!
