Hi guys… So sorry for being missing. I was at camp for 2 days. Its a part of the heads-up summer camp for class 2020. Now,questions…as u all wanted twists I am thinking to do a Malhotra reveal track or u might call it as the last track of the story. Do u want me to do the confession before or after the track? Pls answer the question.
Now,back to the story ladies and gentlemen…
2 days after the whole Goa incident. Saanchi is better now and can resume her duties from tomorrow. This time Kabir was generous enough to give her full 3 days of leave. But, Kabir is annoyed with Saanchi since she took hasty steps without asking his opinion. Its morning. From tomorrow saanchi will resume her work. Kabir gets up and sees that saanchi is not there. He gets up and starts to prepare for the day. After taking his shower and wearing clothes he comes out in the dining area and sees his mom and saanchi gossiping.
Kabir: mom, did u get my laptop placed in the its place?
Kusum: oh sorry. I was talking with saanchi and I forgot. I will do it now.
Saanchi: I already kept it.
Kusum: see, my bahu is smart. She is fast in every work.(praises Saanchi)
Kabir: looks like after getting a bahu u are forgetting that u had a son.
Saanchi: ma spent all this years with a boring.. I mean busy person like you. Now, she got to spend time with someone she can have good time with.
Kabir: oh really.. She is my mom and than ur mother-in-law. So, she likes me more. Mom are u in my side or hers.
Kusum: beta, u are my everything but What saanchi said was right too.. U are sort of boring..
Saanchi smirks and does a high five with Kusum. Suddenly Saanchi remembers she had to pacify him. She mentally scolds herself to get into his bad side already in the morning.
Saanchi: no ma.. Kabir is still ur son. So even if we like each other he still has more right on u. (Laughs nervously)
Kabir:(in mind: now she remembered I am still annoyed with her) no need to change sides. Lets have our breakfast.
All of them sit down as Saanchi serves everyone. She especially asks for Kabir’s choices.
Saanchi: Kabir, do u want the pasta? Wait, let me give u.
Kabir: why are u being so caring today? Serving me again and again. And I have hands.
Saanchi: no its my duty so serve you.
Kabir:(whispers) all these tricks aren’t going to work. Just get back to ur normal self.
Kusum: How do u like the breakfast today?
Kabir: Its different I noticed. But the taste’s good. I think I should praise the chef
Kusum: today the chef didn’t prepare it. Saanchi did.
Kabir:(in mind: shit, I praised saanchi by mistake) didn’t know that u have cooking skills…
Saanchi grins. Kabir hugs Kusum and starts to go.
Kusum: Kabir, won’t say anything to her. She is your wife. At least give her a good bye hug.(saanchi chokes on her water) don’t need to be shy in front of me.
Kabir rolls his eyes and hugs Saanchi…
Kabir: ur mission is still incomplete. Just wait to see how I punish u tomorrow. Clean my office maybe.
He leaves leaving saanchi in great thought what to do next..
Saanchi: mom, do u have any work for me? I have finished all the hospital work for tomorrow.
Kusum: no but do u want to take a look at the attic? We could also arrange things a bit.
Saanchi:(in mind: there must some clue in the attic which will help me persuade kabir back) of course.. Lets go, ma.
Both of them go up and starts looking. Saanchi looks at Kabir’s photos. His childhood memories. She sees a very different kabir than she expected. A cheerful, friendly and happy boy. She sees his friends circle photo, fun at field trips and a photo with a sniper gun.
Saanchi: ma, did Kabir take shooting training?
Author’s note: Guys I know the shooting part is a little retarded.. But, I am doing long range sniper training and its woow. Its a part of sports here and it feels really good. Here we are supposed to hit targets from a long range using a gun with rubber bullets.
Kusum: yes he loved sharp shooting.
He used practise it everyday with his dad. But unfortunately, fate stroke my little boy hard. When his dad abandoned us, he grew a hatred to all things related to his father. Even his favourite hobby of shooting. His threw away his awards of targets and sports.
Saanchi: oh.. He looks so happy before his senior year at high school. He is still a charmer at hospital but he looks really comfortable with his friends in the photos unlike now.
Kusum: he was in his mid 12th grade when his father left us. After than he developed a habit of hating everyone. Keeping everyone away, acting tough to cover up his pains. He lost his bubbly and fun loving nature.
Saanchi:(holding a rusted rifle) that’s his gun?
Kusum: yes. After all these years it still works. But this one doesn’t have lead bullets. Its rubber to avoid casualties.
Saanchi: ma, u are really strong to raise him up alone.
Kusum: Saanchi I believe u can bring my happy kabir back.
Saanchi: me.. No. I can’t do that.
Kusum: I have seen him happy, and with a tendency of fun when he is around u. He treats u not only like his wife but his best friend. He loves arguing with u with small matters. I know u can do that.. Will u try?
Saanchi: (holds her hand in reassurance) of course, ma. I will try. But I don’t know if I will succeed. He is already annoyed with me for hurting myself.
Kusum: already proves how much he cares about u.. How sweet!!!
Time skip to Kabir coming home..
He sees Saanchi in the garden with a dart board and his gun. She hits the board and the bullet doesn’t even hit anywhere near the board.
Kabir: Saanchi, what are u doing with this gun? Put it back where u found it or dispose it. This shouldn’t be in my sight.
Saanchi: I found this at the attic and its amazing. Since I was bored I thought to practise target.
Kabir: Practise? Ur shots are like a blind person’s hit. Its didn’t even reach near the board.
Saanchi: U are telling as if u are the world champion?
Kabir: i sort of am a champion.
Saanchi: want to try and show.
Kabir: (snatches the gun) I am already on it.
Kabir focuses as he is doing it after a long time. Saanchi gives a thumbs up to Kusum who watches them smiling from the window. After catching all the distance and calculation a correct proportion. He shoots. Its hits right on the centre. Kabir looks at Saanchi with a boastful look.
Saanchi: will u teach me.. Pls pls pls.
Kabir: No.. (After thinking) actually maybe I should. Since always act as mother India I think u might put a skill instead of fighting with branches.
Saanchi: i didn’t have a weapon that time.
Kabir and stand behind saanchi pressing his chest against her back. Saanchi holds the gun and kabir puts his hand on top of hers. He keeps his chin on saanchi’s shoulders and she feels his touch.
Kabir: now, look at the aim and than through the scope with one eye and put ur fingers on the trigger. Look at the red laser. It should be 0.3 mm up from the real target and 0.5 mm to left. So,that when u shoot the bullet reaches the point and doesn’t shift due to the air pressure. That’s a trick. Pointing the laser exactly at the target will make it shift a little.
Saanchi: how am I supposed to calculate such small measurements?
Kabir: like u calculate when u operate a person..
Both of them shoot and hits the target. Saanchi gets happy and looks at kabir. He smiles at her and he could feel a sudden urge rushing through him to get close to her. He doesn’t let his desires take over and instantly moves away..
Kabir: now, put this gun back and now I never want to see u with it again..
Saanchi gets sad.. And again the avoid session goes on…
Saanchi: how was ur day today?
Kabir: I am busy now. So disturb me later.
Saanchi gets sad and shifts to her side of the bed with a unhappy face. Kabir feels bad.
Timeskip to the morning… Kabir and Saanchi gets ready and leaves together. Saanchi looks at kabir while he drives anticipating a word from him.
Saanchi: why are u avoiding me and ignoring what I say?
Kabir: can’t talk I am driving.
Saanchi pouts and crosses her arms. She desperately thinks of an idea to calm him. She finally hits a plan. She sneaks within Kabir’s office as he was in a meeting. She can feel fooststeps. Kabir comes in and sees Saanchi doing something.
Saanchi instantly takes both of her hands behind as if she is hiding something.
Saanchi: weren’t u at a meeting? Did it end?(nervously)
Kabir:yes, but what’s that behind ur hand?
Saanchi: my hand. There is nothing..
Kabir: don’t lie.. Show it to me.
Saanchi doesn’t show and kabir comes close to her. He wraps her hand around her and tries to snatch whatever she is holding.. Suddenly veer comes inside…
Veer:Dr.Kabir the files.. Woow.(looks with great interest)
He comes inside and sees Kaanchi in an intimate position. He smirks from the door and looks at them.
Kabir: Dr. Veer have some shame, close the door and get out before I decide to give u punishments.
Kabir shouts at veer still trying to get something from saanchi’s hand.
Veer: yes.. Dr.Kabir. sorry I disturbed u during ur private time.. Enjoy ur romantic time.. Hap…(can’t complete as kabir shouts at him)
Kabir: veer get out of here.
Veer quickly closes the door.. And Kabir Finally gets a hold if Saanchi’s hand.
Saanchi: wait, I will show u.(shows her empty palm) there was nothing at all. Since u were avoiding me and I had to something I acted. I know u will get curious and put some attention on and So, I did this.
Kabir:(his anger melts at her puppy eyes) fine. I forgive u only this time. From next, take my help or ask me as before u transform into mother India. It’s my right as a friend.
Precap: why are girls always getting locked. Lets spice up things and get Kabir trapped this time and Saanchi as the saviour. Kabir gets a hint about Malhotra’s plan.
Thats all readers.. Thanks a lot for reading and pls put a comment. Love u all so much.
