The next day
“Good morning.” Shivaay muttered as he wiped his eyes as he looked at Anika who was already busy in the kitchen.
“Good morning.” Anika ever so hesitantly replied trying to hide her uncomfortableness. He wasn’t one for big personal greetings.
“You know I was thinking.” He started as he surveyed her movements like a hawk eyeing his prey.
“You can pretend to be shy and innocent, so I have something to look forward to every time we are together.” He said
“What are you talking about Billu ji” Anika bit back.
Shivaay just shook his head.
“You are such liar, Anika you’re a naughty girl pretending to be all shy and innocent and you know it.” He said.
“I do not know what you are talking about.” Anika defend again as she walked pass Shivaay to take down some bowls.
Before she knew it her body smashed up against his body as he trapped her firmly between a cupboard and himself that Anika could barely move.
“I can prove it.” He whispers in her ear, his hot breath sent shivers down her spine.
“Do you remember?” He murmured, looking past her to her reflection in the mirror.
“Kissing me?” He asks waggling his eyebrows.
“Yes, of course, I remember.” She said as a slight blush creeping over her face.
“You will always be mine” His voice is delicate, almost a whisper.
Anika had to admit, she liked being in his arms.
She bit her lip, as his hand slowly travels down her waist.
Anika was ready for his plan.
Then he smashes his lips against hers and she didn’t seem surprised at all, but almost expecting it from him.
She kissed him back and hungrily bite his bottom lip something that caught Shivaay off guard and pulling him closer to deepen the kiss.
Then she just stopped and walked away without saying anything.
To say something would most probably give away her master plan, she didn’t want to give away her plan.
She was in total control over Shivaay or so she thought.
Anika let his hand travel down her top and Shivaay just smirked at her.
Her hands slow advance up his neck.
“What, the hell” Shivaay thought to himself unsure of what to make with this bold Anika, this was so unlike her.
Her fingers lightly caressed his neck and without thinking, she delicately inserted her finger in the open part of his shirt, gently touching his skin.
Shivaay’s skin was on fire against her fingertips.
Anika seem to have hit a nerve with Shivaay when she moved her finger under the fabric.
Shivaay felt his whole body ignite like a fire and he hands gently draw circles on her sides of to her waist.
A strange kind of warmth came over him.
Shivaay was finding it hard to resist her advances but he still had his wits about him.
His heart beat at a rate that he wasn’t use to and his blood rushed in his ears.
“This girl is going to kill me” He thought as he ran his hand through his hair.
She might be young and innocent looking, but she did know just how to turn him on even if she didn’t know it herself.
Shivaay pulled them towards each other again and kissed her again this time with more passion.
Anika was lost in desire of the ferocity of the kiss that she hardly noticed what her body was doing.
Shivaay suddenly glided his fingers down fabric of her top, this seem to have ruffled Anika’s thoughts and she fumbled a bit when he wanted to open it.
She had this crazy effect on him, her nonchalant take on life and the fact that her inexperience always drove him mad.
Things were getting hot in the kitchen and it wasn’t the food.
The doorbell ringed.
Anika swiftly moved from his wanting arms and walked towards the door and before she opened the door she gestured Shivaay to hide.
“Anika di” a chirpy Sahil greeted as he entered.
“Morning Sahil”, a flushed Anika replied.
“Go get ready”, she instructed her little brother who quickly walked over to his room.
Anika leisurely walked back to the kitchen as if nothing happened, almost forgetting she had send Shivaay to hide.
“Anika” he said almost in a faint whisper.
“Can I come out?” Shivaay’s voice came from behind the sofa.
“What.” she said as she took a few steps back, looking down at a hunched down confused-looking Shivaay.
He quickly pulled her down before she could protest.
“Anika di, did you see my…..” Sahil said as he entered the room stopping mid-sentence looking around.
“I wonder where she could have gone, she was here a moment ago” he asked himself.
“Shivaay, leave my hand” Anika told Shivaay with her eyes.
“What am I supposed to do here?” Shivaay asked.
“Just wait here Sahil, will be going to school in a minute” she replied.
“What is wrong with her is she going to pretend that 5 minutes ago didn’t happen?
Walking away Anika thought to herself, “He didn’t say anything, I wonder if my plan worked?”
“Sahil”, Anika yelled, “come the bus is here.”
“Where were you? The one minute you were here and the next, you were gone” Sahil questioned a now nervous Anika.
“You have that look, the same look you used to have when you worked for Billu ji” he stated.
“What” Anika exclaimed.
When she heard this, Anika started to blush and hardly knew what to say.
“Sahil, stop talking nonsense and get your bag” Anika stammered trying to make it off as just his imagination but she knew that the old Anika was back.
The girl who gave her heart away, has now found it again.
