The Prank !!
Naira walked in a small restaurant which was close to the boutique she had shopped at.
It wasn’t much grand but cozy and warm. It was very homely and she loved the ambience and the small cute corner tables.
Karthik glanced down at her and frowned.
“I’ll just come. You go sit.” He muttered in a low voice, got out his ringing phone from his right pocket, and walked out of the door.
Naira’s eyebrows strained looking at his disappearing back. She sighed and dragged her feet to the corner and slid down on the chair.
A woman came around towards her. She was wearing the restro’s uniform. The woman, a little older, smiled down at naira endearingly.
“What can I get you, dear ?!!” The woman asked her gently.
Naira’s eyes watered at the endearment. She thought of her mother. How was she at home ?!! What kind of trouble she was in now ?!! Naira felt really uneasy suddenly.
“I’m waiting for my husband. He went outside for a minute.” Naira explained.
The woman smiled happy knowing,now that she was a married woman. She looked out of the window.
“Oh, is that your husband ?!! He looks like such a handsome boy.” The woman cooed.
Naira looked out of the glass window and saw him there standing and talking over the phone. Ugh !! He was always the charmer, wasn’t he ?!! The old lady was a fan of his as well.
Naira sighed sadly.
“Yeah, he is.” She said in a low tone.
Something in Naira’s tone got the old woman’s attention. She frowned in a worry.
“You sound sad, my dear. Doesn’t he treat you well ?!!” She asked with a concern of an elder person.
Naira opened her mouth hastily to clarify her doubt but closed it shut when an immediate thought occurred in her mind.
Oh, yeah, why not dent his reputation a little. That way no pretty waitresses would look at him. There were already some gathering near another window literally fanning themselves, looking at him and giggling among themselves.
Time to let out the crocodile tears. She thought.
She started out a little sob and screwed up her features and convulsed her face in a deep pain.
“Actually he doesn’t.” Naira said hacking fake sobs.
The girls all looked back at her curiously.
The old lady moved towards her and put her hand on Naira’s shoulder in support.
“Oh, dear.” The lady mumbled feeling sorry for her.
“Yes and he beats me up everyday !!” Naira cried hard now, with tears streaming down her face.
All the waitresses surrounded her now. One of them offered a tissue from the box in sympathy.
“Thank you.” She said in gratitude and smiled at them.She wiped the burning tears .
“How bad he is. You should complaint to the police.” One of the girl muttered in support of her.
“How can I go against him ?!! He is my husband. My love.” She cried again with more tears flowing down her face.
Husband, my love, my foot !!
“See the cut on her forehead. I think he hit her there. Poor girl.” One of them whispered to the other.
All the girls had their left hands over their hearts and were almost in tears looking at her. The door of the restaurant burst open.
Naira wiped her tears.
“Can you guys move away, he would think that I was telling on him.” She hastily warned them.
The girls got the indication and moved away. He came around and sat across at her.
“Too many damn mosquitoes here. What a vile place this is !!” Karthik muttered.
Naira looked over his shoulder. A lean fair girl put on a smile, twirled her hair and tried to walk towards their table. The waitress angled very close to Naira, and stood to take the order. She was looking at Karthik in complete fear and disgust.
Karthik started to say something, but the waitress cut him short.
“Your order, mam ?!!” She asked.
Naira smiled in complete and utter happiness. Finally, no girl would look at him without disgust now.
Karthik’s forehead furrowed looking at the girl. He looked really confused and surprised that for the first time, somebody wasn’t taking his order first.
It was Naira’s turn. She ignored him completely, she was too much hungry now to think of anything. She clasped her hands happily.
“Two double chicken cheese burgers, with extra mayo and jalepenos. French fries. One raspberry milkshake and a Greek salad.” She smiled and concluded the order.
The girl noted it down.
Karthik started to speak to the waitress again, but the girl escaped from their table. Naira snorted in a laugh again looking down at the menu. Karthik looked back at her and Naira rearranged her face into a serious one.
“Why didn’t she take my order ?!!” He asked her frowning in confusion.
Naira put on an innocent look.
“How would I know ?!!” She said too in bewilderment.
He leaned back on the chair and stared at her in deep suspicion. The order came immediately and Naira sat upright looking at the cheese burger and the milk shake.
The old woman from earlier gave a wide smile down to Naira, when placing down the salad. “You must be ashamed of yourself.” She scolded fiercely in Karthik’s bemused face and walked away in anger.
“What did you say to her ?!!” He asked finally, after glaring at her for more than a second.
“Nothing.” Naira mumbled.
Precap : Some light hearted romance. Karthik getting possesive for Naira !!
So I wrote about how Naira got all jealous and possesive for him in this Chapter. The next one will have Karthik feeing the same for her. Also some romance and blushing coming up in next Chapter.
Thanks for all your wishes. I am better now but can’t walk due to pain. Rest for two more days and then I would be completely fine.
