……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
Sitting inside the black Mercedes benz I wiped the tears away as I looked ahead at him.His large figure sat at the front as his hands now turned white against the steering wheel his jaw clenching and his stormy eyes looking ahead..
Oh ayappa….
How will I survive with this man?
Ftae is quite twisted if you ask me.Just five hours ago, I was going to marry Dhruv Malhotra.Just 5 hours ago I was going to be Mrs.Nandini Dhruv Malhotra and here I’m married to his elder brother Manik.
“Stop crying” came a stern voice as I jumped up slightly shocked from the hardness of the voice “I I’m not”I said sniffing as he looked at me in the mirror glaring at me..
“Dont lie to me little one”he spoke as he took a sharp turn making me clench on to the car seat all the whilst he glared daggers at the road ahead of him
What did the road ever do to him?
I sighed as I looked out of the window,at the sea of trees we are about to pass.
Ayappa why did all this happen?i thought as I rememberd the day my father had announced this arranged marriage

FLASHBACK:
The bright sunlight shone against my face as I squirned groaning,trying to hide from it.I could feel it’s heated gaze on me as I picked the soft fluffy pillow and slammed it against my head smelling the fresh duvet and bedsheets..
“Nandini Nandkishore Murthy wake up”yelled a voice as I sighed ignoring it and falling into a blissful sleep.
Nandu..if u dont wake up I’m going to throw water on you”my mom yelled as I shot up groaning.
God it is a Saturday!!
What’s the rush?
“MUM It’s Saturday…lemme sleep”i yelled falling on the soft pillow as my eyelids got heavy again
Uncle Raj is coming to our house with his family at 1’o clock nd its 12:39″she yelled as I groaned getting up..
“Oh why,Oh why did you have to come today Uncle Raj?”
I thought as I got up groggily and went at the pace of a snail inside the bathroom which is in my room..20 minutes passed as I yawned lazily looking in the mirror infront of me,i stared at the reflection and smiled..
You could sayi am pretty,I have large doe eyes and long bronze reddish nd blackish waist length hair…”Oh well”I muttered as I ran my hand through the steamed up mirror b4 I grabbed the hair brush from the draw nd strtd brushing my hair whilst walking inside the bedroom..Looking around I found my veena which is still on the floor on the veena mat left after I practised at 4:00 A.M
After brushing my hair,I took all the little hair strands struck to it nd threw them in the bin b4 walking towards wardrobe nd picking out my dark blue top nd black jeans ….I had a think for the colour dark blue..
Searching the top of the draw I couldnt find my dazzling earrings..
Not this again…
“Oh come on”
I yelled as I grabbed my white earrings instead of them and rushed downstairs into the large house as I sighed looking around for mom”Amma where r my blue earrings”i yelled walking 2wards the kitchen as I heard her yell there in Tamil making me laugh quietly..
“thangam(Gold) Its either in ur draw or in the front room where I kept injewel’s box…”she spoke as she continued rummaging through the sink cupboard looking for God knows what…
“K bye mom”I yelled running towards the front room just to see Rishab nd Aarav playing COD,whilst yelling ata each other for not “Kicking the zombie”
“Hey u promised you’ll let me play”i yelled huffing as Rishab turned around and mocked a laugh
“Oh please nandu you are eighteen”he spoke as I gave him a humourless laugh
“No really rishu?”I spoke sarcastic as I sat down on the black leather sofas like a boss..Sort of.
“YOU’re younger than me rishu,show me some respect”I said smirking at him as he rolled his eyes”yeah by one year”he spoke as he continued making a racket with his controller
“Shut up u two..Ugh see you made me loose”aarav yelled as he glared at me through those thick black eyelashes
“woh sorry”I muttered as I looked around for my earrings and found it in the draw.
“you know aarav…you r really mody for a sixteen year old”i muttered glaring at the two as I walked off,towards the kitchen passing the main door as it opened and Abhimanyu walked inside all sweaty form his morning jogs…
(INTRODUCTION:
RISHAB MURTHY:nandu’s younger brother(cousin-chacha’s son)-17 year old-too naughty .always tries too tease nandu
AARAV MURTHY:rishab’s brother(nandu’s chacha’s son)-16 year old…Evil twin of rishab(not originally twins)
ABHIMANYU MURTHY:nandu’s overpossessive own brother…his baby doll is nandu..but teases her alot..luv s her a lot..can do anythng for her
)
“Morning Nandani”abhi spoke grinning at me knowing full well I hate it when he calls that…
Nandini Abhimanyu…Nandini”I growled glaring at him as I retreated and walked upstairs huffing..
Its not fair how come I have no sisters?
I thought as I pushed my bedroom door open and tied my hair in a neat bun b4 putting my scarf (to go out)on and applying Eyeliner when suddenly I groaned knowing uncle Raj family is coming and their sons will be here,whom I dont know very much..
“Nandu come down your father and uncle Raj are here”Amma yelled as I groaned looking around for some wipes to wipe my face but they decided to play some hide nd seek wth me..
“Now nandu”my mum spoke sternly,as I sighed and ran downstairs just to be met with a petite small woman with large green eyes staring at me with a not so happy expression”sorry amma”I said kissing her on the cheek as she chuckled”Go meet Aunt Nyonika”she said as I nodded smiling at seeing aunt Nyo who is uncle raj’s wife..
“Oh my nandu,u’ve gone so big”is the first thing I heard as I walked imside the middle room smiling at aunt nyo”namaste aunt nyo nd thanks for the compliment”I said giving her a dazzling smile as she grinned tapping the seat next to her…
Its safe to say when the clock struck 5’0 clock,that i was shattered but continued washing dishes whilst aunty nyo nd mom talked about all their days back in India,while Uncle Raj,aarav,rishu nd abhi alongside with uncle raj’s son Dhruv talked about the upcoming Fifa worldcup..
How I know this well let’s just say they talk so loud that I can hear them from the kitchen…
Putting the biscuits in the plate I picked the tray up and walked towards the middle room where mum nd aunt are whisphering whilst grinning but stopped abruptly when they saw me..
Strange…..
i thought as I placed the tray on the table and served the tea for the two as they drank it slowly and continued with their conversation..
Mum and aunt Nyo are so engrossed in theier conversations that they didnt hear uncle raj calling from the other room..
Uncle Raj called again from the other room saying aunt nyo should get ready becoz they r leaving and within a minute aunt is ready and said their gudbye’s nd hugged each other repeatedly like no tomorrow..
Hearing the door close after a gud 10 minutes of hugging nd kissing,I ran a hand through my hair tiredly.”ugh finally”i groaned as I started walking up the stairs when suddenly my dad called my name making me stop in my tracks nd look at him..
“yeah appa…?”I asked as he smiled kindly at me..”nandu come we need to talk..”he said as I nodded and walked 2wards the front room where very serious looking abhimanyu and apologetically looking rishu nd aarav
Okay thay are finally going to admit thay ate all my oreos and chocalate bunnies nd my terry chocolate?Okay…May b not I thought as I stared at their faces..
“Nandu my beautiful daughter wat Im about to say I want u to fully listen nd concentrate okay?”Appa said as I nodded md lukd at him”last year our company stocks were coming down nd we made a loan from back which helped our company but the bank strtd demanding their money early..Within such a short time we couldnt afford to pay it all back and that’s when uncle raj came nd gave us a hand”Appa spoke as I looked at him feeling a very uncomfortable feeling at the pit of my stomach…
“I didnt know how to repay my good nd old frnd but as we spoke he asked me of sumthng I was baffled at”he spoke lukng at em b4 continuing”he wished that u nd dhruv would 1 day get married”he finally spoke as I gasped looking at mum who is looking down wth tears..
A long silence fell btween us as evry1 in the room stiffened staring at me,waiting for my reaction”Appa no pls I dont…”I started as he cut me off mid sentence…
“Please nandu,I know it’s a lot to ask but Dhruv is a gud boy”he said as Abhimanyu scoffed looking at dad
Dhruv Malhotra the world’s most proudest and crude person not to mention number one player..”Nandu pls….baby for our honour…how will we show our faces to them..to society?”he asked as I shook my head not knowing how my dad could say this..
“I er…I need time to think”I spoke standing up and rushing up the stairs ignoring my brother’s calls
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
2 weeks later I was in a room wearing my brown lehenga as aunt nyo sobbed holding my mum as they read a letter dhruv wrote..
Yes I agreed to marry Dhruv not bcoz I wanted to but bcoz i couldnt say no to my parents nd here I am as Uncle Raj read the letter fuming with anger..
Its usually cliche that the girl runs away but I guess it is a guy this tym…
“Nandkishore…wat will we do..The ppl r waiting outside ..how will we show our faces?”uncle raj spoke as Appa shook his heaad in defeat..Rishab and aarav came rushing in as they looked at Appa b4 whispering sumthing in his ear hurriedly..When suddenly both of the men turned around nd looked at each other b4 looking at me..
“Manik”
They both spoke loudly as I nearly had a heart failure and that is how my life is twisted within 2 weeks time..
