The Peacock and the kisses !!
In the evening when Naira walked into her room, she froze suddenly in her tracks. Her eyes stayed glued to the bed. There was a packet of something. She frowned at it for quite a while. She hesitated but she pulled the cover of it. She found the note first.
“ We are going out tonight, Wear this for tonight’s dinner – K”
She looked down at the long dark blue off shoulder dress. She gasped at the richness of the color and the softness of the fabric. It was figure hugging and beautiful. There was thought behind every thing that her husband sent her. It was as if he put all his feelings in every gift that he bought for her.
The question that circled in her mind – Was this a date ?!!
She was unsure of it. His schedule had been too busy to make out time from it and take her out for dinner on a date. She knew it was impossible. But then it didn’t matter what it was, what mattered that he would be there with her for the whole night. They would get to spend time together and she was happy with this thought itself. Didn’t matter if it was a date or a party by one of his associates.
She looked at the clock and walked towards the bathroom finally to get ready. After a really long bath she changed into the gown. She arranged her hair over her head into a loose flower bun. A sigh escaped her lips looking at the dress that fit perfectly to her body.
She applied a little make up. Specially focusing over her eyes because the dress needed some drama and the smoky shade of the mascara matched well with the color of the dress.
A pair of platinum earrings and she was done with the things. She put one and while doing it her eyes rounded in alert at the door as it moved opened abruptly. She saw in the mirror that he was walking into the room. She was struck dumb suddenly when her eyes moved over his attire in the glass mirror.
As Karthik entered into the room, he noticed that the door was not locked. He had intended to knock on it but a slight push had led it to open. He was surprised that she never locked the door. This act of hers showed how much she trusted him. How much sure she was that no matter what but he wont hurt her or misuse the trust that she put in him.
He was all dressed up looking all sharp in a blue suit. His hair was all gelled back. Naira drew up her shoulders. So she was right indeed. Seems like it was some big business dinner. Well no date for her tonight.
He walked a little front and he froze suddenly when his eyes fell over her back. She stared entranced at him. She tried to turn around but her eyes drew down to his hands. There was this deep maroon velvet jewellery box caught firmly by his long tanned fingers. She looked up into his face in the mirror and suddenly her eyes went weariness in his gaze. Like he was too tired.
The silence remained mutual. He came forward and she kept looking at him coming towards her in slow saunter of steps. He stood behind her and caught her gaze finally over the mirror. She maintained his eyes on hers quite placidly. His eyes moved over her back and she stiffened and remained unmoved. Was something stuck there ?!!
He bend down and kept the box on the table beside the mirror all the while holding her gaze. He pulled himself up and suddenly moved closer to her. Naira moved a step front . He moved a step closer again and she was locked to the mirror with face front. He was looking down again and she stiffened instantly as his fingers moved over her bare back. Her eyes widened when touched the zipper of the dress. Crap. She forgot to zip it from the back.
A low inaudible breath escaped her lips as his warm fingers touched her spine from below. Goosebumps rose up her flesh but he wasn’t looking at her. His dark head was bent and his eyes were sharply focused over the business at hand. Which he seem to deal with a lot of attention. He suddenly bent down and kissed her at the end of her back.
He pulled up the zipper by an inch and then again kissed her there. This act of kissing her, zipping the chain by an inch then again kissing then zipping continued till he reached the end point of the zipper. All the while he kissed her and zipped the chain she held on to the dressing table’s end tightly. Her hormones were going all crazy when both his hands or his lips touched her spine.
He zipped up the dress and buttoned it at the top. Her face burned while his fingers lingered on her lower back. She kept looking down and waited quite a while for him to move back. Since his heat and strength penetrated her mind and body and irked her more. She jumped as something cold circled around her neck and her eyes flew towards the mirror. Her gaze clashed with the glittering sharp shine of the clean cut diamonds.
Her wide eyes moved up fast and they met his eyes. She looked down at the delicate blue diamonds that formed the beautiful dancing peacock pendant. The peacock that dangled from her neck was just too beautiful. Looking at it she felt that he wanted to convey something to her.
“Its Beautiful. Thank you.” She said smiling down at the peacock pendant.
“It’s you when you dance.” He said softly looking down into her eyes.
And as if on cue naira blushed deep red. Karthik touched her shoulders and turned her around to face him. He held her by her waist and pulled her closer to his body. She was still looking down. He held her chin between his forefingers and moved her face up to look into his eyes. As soon as their eyes meet, Karthik felt as if something rushed into his blood veins.
He closed the distance between them and kissed her on her lips. He had kissed her many times before, but he wanted to make this kiss a special. He wanted to pour all his heart into this kiss. He wanted to show her how much she meant to him. How much he loved her.
Yes, He would propose her tonight after the dinner. He would tell her that his world has now started revolving around her. That she meant a lot to him. And that he would never imagine a moment without her.
He moved back still with his eyes on her.
“Ten minutes.” He muttered, and walked away.
Naira turned around and steadied her breath. She felt loved suddenly. It was as if he wanted to convey something to her through the kiss. But she couldn’t decipher what !!
She set her hair right and did her make up. She walked out of the mansion and towards the car. He was leaned back over the front looking at the sky. She wondered, what was wrong with him ?!! He never was so lost or affected. Something was going on in his mind and she needed to know what was it exactly ?!!
She walked around the car . He straightened and opened the door for her to sit in. She observed that this was the first time ever that he had done something so much like a true gentleman. She sat in and he closed the door.
He sat in next to her and held her hand in his. He entwined their fingers and rubbed her wrist with his thumb. She felt butterflies in her stomach and it confirmed that this night was going to be one hell of a night that both of them would never forget.
