“Romeo wake up…wake up..wake up…” she alarmed him.
“Soney do na jaanu..Pls 5 minutes” he said like a baby.
She came back after 5 minutes “Abhi please wake up” she pleased almost.
“Umm…Good morning jaanu” he said with an yawn by widening his broad chest.
“Good morning Romeo” she said by ruffling his hair.
“What’s the time” he asked with another yawn.
“It’s already 5 AM” she said by placing a kiss on top of his head.
He stared at her with utmost disbelief “What it’s just 5AM..Have you gone mad jaanu” he leaned back again.
She stopped him “No.. just go and take bath I turned on the heater go hurry up.. hurry up..we wanna do Pooja na” she said which she looks extremely cute.
“Oh my cutie pie..I’m going” he can’t speak any word before her cuteness.
“Make it soon” she said and he nodded.
She was making the stuffs for pooja.
“Jaanu..Jaanu…Jaanu..” he alarmed as he came out of restroom.
She slowly paced to the room as she know why he was shouting.
“Come sit down.. don’t scream” she said by making him to sit on bed.
“Uhhh..it’s so chill jaanu..why you are torturing me like this” he asked by peeping from the towel as she was toweling his hair.
“Shut up..” she said smiled at him and dried his hair.
“Okay chalo come come lets do Pooja and then I ll leave for my work and wish me the luck” she said as he got up and followed her.

After doing Pooja she gives him the prasad it’s prasad for her and it’s just a sweet for him he opens his mouth and got the sweet she feeded and smiled “Now ur pooja over” he asked with raised brows.
“Haa..Haa..now and let’s have breakfast” she said by keeping the pooja plate besides.
“Hmm.. yeah well I have to make a call to Dadi and I ll back” he said.

He held her hands and “Wait jaan..Today you have to speak with Dadi how many times I had tried sometimes you ll be unavailable sometimes Dadi so today I have to get both of you together” he said and dialled dadi’s number.
She smiled “Okay baba” and stood by crossing her arms to her chest.Abhi smiled and pulled her towards him wrapped his arms around her.
“Hello budiyaa” he said excitedly as the call connected while Pragya was seeing at his excitement when he talks to his Dadi he became 5 year old kid.
“Abhi..beta how are you” asked Dadi excitedly.
“I’m fine Dadi.. How are you” he asked in return while Pragya guessed what Dadi ll think if she talks to her.
“I’m fine when are you going to come here..See you finished your studies come home soon I wanna see you get married soon” she said happily and ordered him after hearing this his face lil bit sad that was noticed by Pragya she raised her brows in ‘what’ manner he nodded as nothing..
“Dadi..see today I’m gonna do my live concert wish me luck budiyaa and Pragya also gonna join her job today wish us” he said excitedly.Pragya smiles at him.
“Pragya?Kon Pragya” asked Dadi which hurt Abhi he doesn’t know how to say when Pragya was besides him and looking at him with excitement and smile.
Abhi tried to cover up and said “Uffo..Budiyaa”
“Abhi..I Wish you the best for you and you ll rock the day my wishes are always with you and that girl I even don’t know stop talking about such random girls” she said.
Abhi was hurt as well he can’t explain his Dadi so he maintained “Thank you Dadi I will tell her” he said and ended the call and thinks ‘This Dadi bhi na don’t know why she is still in 60’s drama queen’ he thinks and turned towards Pragya seeing him with a big question mark.
“Kya hua Abhi..what she said” asked Pragya.
“Nothing jaan..She wished us luck and she was getting to health check up in hospital so she hanged up the call” he lied her.
“Oh…” she said disappointed.
Abhi noticed this and wraps his arms around her waist and asked “What happened to my baby doll seems to be sad suddenly” he asked her softly.
“I thought today I ll speak with her but see destiny is always in opposite side” she pouted sadly.
He tightened his grip “Oh…hello..You know your destiny is always in your side that’s why you got such a hot happening charming hubby”

“Abhi come on it’s time to go to stage” said Brad while it was time for his concert.
“5 more minutes” said Abhi.
“Come on yaar it’s getting late” said Brad and left the green room.
‘Where she had gone I said her to be here before time but she didn’t came yet’ muttered Abhi as Pragya didn’t arrive.
Brad comes again and said “Abhi come else sponsors ll feel the worst come on”
Abhi nodded and got his guitar in his hand and got in to the stage.There was huge crowd evern Britishers also there and his first rows occupied by his fellas and they were screaming madly and chanting at his name he stood silent then he got her glimpse she was running near the stage his face immediately glowed and smiled at her.
She reciprocated the same smile and shows thumbs up and it was noticed by their fellas and they screamed “Awwwwwwwwww” Pragya saw them and passed a smile and Abhi too smiled and strummed his guitar to flow his divine voice.Pragya closed her eyes for a second and prayed the almighty and looked back to the stage.
Abhi with a smile sings eyeing Pragya……

Abhi’s concert song performance is similar to this.
He finished with a huge bow and she was clapping hard and was extremely happy by seeing crowd’s response.He waved his hands towards crowd all were cheering him and he waved kisses and said “Thank you all” and left the stage by leaving the crowd overwhelming.
Pragya was happy by seeing crowd’s huge response suddenly some one taps her shoulder she turned and looks at the man in confusion.
“You are Pragya ryt” asked the man.
“Yes,you” she asked confused
“Hey..I’m Brad I think you know me Abhi’s organizer” he said forwarding his hand.
“Oh..Hi..I’m sorry I never met you ryt” she briefed.
“Yeah..It’s okay btw Abhi asked you to come to his green room” he said.
“Yeah..come let’s go” she said and both walked towards the green room.
“Here you wait Pragya he ll come in seconds” said Brad and left the place.
“Okay thank you” said Pragya with a smile.
She was waiting for him Suddenly she heard door’s sound and she turned towards the door.
“Hey…Hey..Jaanu..Wohaaaa” he shouted and ran towards her and hugged her tight.
“Hey Rockstar you made it” she said by hugging him tight.
“We made it jaanu” he corrected her and broke the hug and looked her with full of happiness.
“Yeah…I’m so happy for you now bend urself lil” she ordered.
“Falling head to toe for you baby” he said poetically and bends his head.
She smiled and placed a deep kiss in his forehead “Muaaaaaaahhhh”
“Whoaaa Jaanu much of energy” he said.
“Idiot..You know how crowd enjoyed your performance” she said proudly.
“Hmm..yeah I noticed and what about you…You liked it na” he asked even though he knows the answer.
“I love it the words it touched my soul” she said with a proud grin.
“You love the song alone???..what about me” he asked with a pout.
“.I hate you” she said with a smile.
“I love you too jaan” he said and placed kiss on her forehead.
She smiled and slapped his chest.
“Ouch..” he whined in pain and removed his dog tags and wrist bands.
“Jaan..keep all this these are irritating I’m feeling hot even in cold lo pakdo” he said and handover his things to her.
“Wait..Wait drop all this in bag” she said and opened her bag.
Brad comes there and said “Abhi..come man our sponsors wanna meet you”
“Oh ya wait..” he said Brad and “Jaan here you manage” he said and dropped his things nearby table and ran out with Brad.
“Hey idiot…Abhi..” she shouted at him for dropping all the things she collected the things and stuffed in her bag.
While she was doing this his phone rang she took his mobile and looked at the caller ID it was his Dadi her lips made a small smile and decided to attend the call.
Dadi : Hello…Abhi.
Pragya : Dadi..It’s me Pragya.
Dadi : Pragya?? *She puzzled*
Pragya : Haan Dadi how are you?
Dadi : Haa..Good but why you are attending the call where is Abhi.
Pragya : He had gone to meet the sponsor Dadi.He is not here.
Dadi : Then it’s fine actually I thought to talk with you alone.
Pragya : Ofcourse Dadi even I wanna talk with you.
Dadi : I donno what you wanna talk with me but I wanna say that there is a wedding alliance for Abhi and I decided it ll be perfect for him and his future.
Pragya : *gone numb didn’t utter any word gasped in shock*
Dadi : I donno why he is always behind you but I didn’t like it.I don’t want a bahu who has no cultural values who stay with a man without any wedding relationship.But I really don’t care about it I only care about my son.The wedding alliance is from CEO of big music company they really want Abhi to get married to his daughter.He ll be big support for
Abhi and his career more than that even they live in London they are highly cultural and has more traditional values.So that’s better for Abhi and our family.
Pragya : But Dadi… *her words are stammering and eyes were filled completely she gone pale in a moment by hearing all this*
Dadi : Do you really care for him or you are looking for your betterment by being with Abhi.
Pragya : Enough Dadi.. I care for him *she shouted in a rage of anger & disappointment*
Dadi : If you really care for him then you have to accept for this.Its better for his future I’m his Dadi and I know what’s good for him.And I know he won’t refuse what I’m saying.If he says no then you ll be the only reason.If you really want him to be happy all through his life then go away from him.I have seen world better than you guys so I know which will work and which won’t work.So I’m saying with this alliance Abhi ll be happy if you really wanna Abhi too happy then think and decide yourself.
By saying this she ended the call.Pragya startled and don’t know what to do.Her mind was not stable she wanna cry out loud but she doesn’t wanna break down in road.She saw Brad coming towards her she immediately handovered Abhi’s mobile to Brad and she left the place immediately.Her mind was tossing around the words of Dadi.She doesn’t know how to manage herself with heavy thoughts and running eyes she reached home she immediately get into a room and closed herself.
