Naira’s Driving skills !!
She happily tucked in while he watched her all through it.
“What ?!!” She asked carelessly while pushing a spoonful of food in her mouth.
He straightened suddenly and smiled coolly. She blinked bemused at his sudden change in mood. Her mind cautioned and she grew very alert.
“What ?!!” She asked again suspiciously, with the spoon half way to her mouth.
He looked deep in her eyes and then slid his gaze all over her face.
“Why did you want to come along with me to my office ?!!” He asked.
Her cheeks flushed profusely. He leaned closer to her face on the table and caught her spoon held hand. She blinked as his minty breath fell over her lips when he took the bite of the chicken. Her heart beat raced as his thumb finger slid over her wrist vein slowly.
He spooned the rice and curry and again leaned closer to her lips before his lips closed over the spoon. He leaned back and used the paper napkin to dab his mouth. His eyebrows raised quizzically at her silence.
“I asked you something.” He said bemusedly.
“I just did.” She replied.
“Do you have any other answer than ‘I just did’ and ‘I just don’t’ ?!!” He asked her wryly.
He leaned in and she saw that he took her spoon held hand and polished off the food. Her appetite left altogether while he moved closer to her face. His breath warmed her skin.
His thumb finger suddenly swiped at the corner of her lips and she stared wide into his eyes.
“If you want to spend time with me, you just have to say it.” He whispered softly.
“Why would I say that ?!!” She snapped looking anywhere else but at him.
She looked back at him after setting her face right . He nodded his head.
“Alright. Don’t expect anything from me then.” He said drawing back over his chair.
“What do you mean ?!!” She asked worrying a little.
He did not look at her but polished off the cake she had ordered. She scowled. She remained hungry here and he deliberately ate her dinner.
She got off the chair and moved around him and made a sullen walk to the door. She made way and treaded outside in blistering anger. He got around beside her near the parking lot.
“Keys.” He said plainly, while sliding his hand towards her.
She gave him a side glare and pushed her chin in the air.
“I don’t have them.” She replied flatly.
“Stop being a kid.” He said exasperated with her finally.
“Don’t you understand that I don’t have them.” She shot back loudly.
His jaw set and he looked around consciously.
“Don’t be silly.” He snapped.
”Give me the keys.” He said warningly walking towards her.
She moved back and brightened up suddenly.
“Can I drive the car ?!!” She asked energetically and looked at the shiny red Audi.
She loved his car. It was so happening and cool. He stared at her.
“No.” He bit out.
Her shoulders shrugged and the smile on her face wiped away. He always said no to her. Always a no. Why did she tag along with him. ?!!
“Fine.” She replied in a small voice, and turned around.
She sounded like a deflated balloon
“Alright.” He complied sighing.
She turned around instantly.
“Really ?!!” She asked with wide eyes.
He looked at her gravely.
“Only if you drive it good.” He warned her sharply.
“Of course.” She said instead smilingly.
He stared at her suspiciously and apprehensively.
“I’m going to regret this bad.” He muttered under his breath.
She ignored that and walked happily to the car.
Naira stared at the steering wheel so excitedly. He sat beside her shaking his head in regret already. She could laugh looking at the expression of his face but she bit her lower lip and tamed it. She had already taken advantage of his sudden softness towards her. It was fun to watch him struggle like that.
She took in a deep breath and started the car and as it purred on the road Naira just felt it course through her veins.
“Oh, my god. It’s drives so smooth !!!” She cried out while taking a turn of the steering wheel.
Her hands flexed on it feeling empowered already. He shook his head and grinned at her gleeful excitement.
“Careful.” He warned her softly.
She smiled wide while looking front but a mischievous streak entered into her mind while looking at him sit all stiff and pensively.
Slowly and slowly she increased the speed and watched him tense up instantly.
“Slow down.” He said warningly again, but this time getting really alert.
She ignored him and enjoyed the ride while the road disappeared fast under the wheels.
“I said slow down.” He gritted again.
“Oh, my god, but it rides so awesome !!!” She shouted back happily.
Just as she thought to pump it up a police car got behind theirs. Naira’s eyes widened.
“Stop the car.” He snapped at her sharply.
Both of her eyebrows raised up at that.
“Why ?!! We could just drive off fast.” She said shrugging her shoulders and sounding very light.
“Have you had a criminal record before ?!!” He asked her in disbelief.
She giggled now happily.
“Stop the car, Naira !!” He thundered.
She stopped the car immediately. He closed his eyes when she did that. The car behind theirs stopped too and the police officer got out of it. Naira gulped worried. Now she really messed up everything.
The officer walked towards the window and she panicked. The officer beat at the glass window and Naira panicked for real now. Her mind went frantic. She slid down the glass window hastily and looked up at the face of a forty something year old man.
“License.” The policeman barked curtly.
Naira jumped at his voice. Now she really was going to jail. She did not carry the driving license with her. It was in her car but not in this one. She looked across at her husband for help but he just ignored her and stared front.
Karthik was taking revenge on her now. She worked up her mind and an idea struck brightening her mood. She looked at the officer and started fake crying.
“I’m so sorry, officer, I don’t have the license. My husband here made me drive the car when I told him not to make me break the laws.” She cried hard.
“What ?!!” Karthik asked with raised surprised voice suddenly.
The officer looked at her crying face and then at his face and moved back from the car.
“Sir, can you come out.” The policeman ordered suddenly.
Naira smiled inside and looked across at Karthik winking. Karthik just stared hard at her murderously.
“I’m going to kill you for this.” Karthik muttered darkly at her and slid out of the car.
Naira got out too to watch the fun.
“License.” The officer said again to him.
Then he took the officer beside and talked for a long time. Seeming and trying to convince him a lot. She blinked when her husband moved back while the officer moved to his car.
Ten minutes later they stood beside each other watching a truck tow his Audi. She watched with wide eyes as the car was dragged over the road while the officer saw through the proceedings of it.
She gulped hard. Karthik was so going to kill her. She never thought that the officer would do this. She thought that with a fine and a warning he would leave but not take away his car.
She dreaded to look at Karthik. He stood beside her frozen to the ground with his hands folded over his chest and his coat hung over his right hand. He was looking at his car being dragged over the road. She felt really bad. She did not mean that to happen.
“I’m so sorry. I did not know that he would tow your car like that.” She said wincingly, before she moved back a safe distance from his side.
“You are sorry ?!!” Karthik asked dangerously low.
She flinched back and nodded her head. He turned around and faced her and came towards her slowly. Naira moved back a few steps before she turned around screeching. His face was very scary when angry.
“Oh, my god !! He is going to kill me !!” She shouted and took a run for an escape.
“Hey !! Come back here you little devil!” He shouted after her.
Karthik looked around furtively and consciously. He got stares and curses flung at him for making a girl run and cry.
“She is my wife.” He said smiling sheepishly.
She made him too furious. Irritated. Annoyed. Out of control and desperate with anger. This was worse than being with a five year old kid. He looked around to see a few women giving him a dirty look.
Now people will think that he was a psycho and a domestic abuser.
