Hello friends…thank you so much for all the support and appreciation so here is the chp 2 let me know how was it…pls pls pls comment if you liked it or not.
People call me by different names…life… destiny…and sometimes I am being cursed for being difficult…but problem is not with me…its with you guys…until unless I grill you don’t seem to understand my worth… So enough of me…let me take you on a joy ride. I always favor the right and brave ….the course of following your heart is not easy…so let’s see where these Manmarziyan will take them.
Dilip and Mala were enjoying their morning tea….when Sam entered the house like a meteor …she was breathing heavily Mala got worried;’’Sam are you ok kid…why are so breathless…is everything ok…?’’
Sam huffed puffed and replied; ‘’where is Radhika…aunty its important…I need to see her now…’’
Dilip; ‘’First you sit and relax for a second…have a glass of water…Mala please get Radhika before Sam gives me a heart attack’’ Mala nodded and went to check on Radhika…Radhika was happily sleeping on her stomach with her head covered and feet out of the blanket…Mala shook Radhika up…but Radhika was someone very difficult to wake up…Mala took little water and sprinkled on Radhika’s face…she stretched…herself a bit…scratched her head and opened her eyes; ‘’Mom …let me sleep…I don’t have classes today…she again covered herself’’
Mala; ‘’God knows what will you do after you get married ….now get up Sam is waiting for you…she all worried don’t know for what reason…but come out…I will try and calm her’’
Mala came out…she saw Sam still tensed chewing her nails… she caressed her hair; ‘’Beta relax…the kumbhakaran has just woken up…she will be out in a minute’’
Radhika came out still in her night dress…Sam got up held her by shoulders and said; ‘’Chashni…exchange programme results are out…and you won’t believe…’’
Radhika was fully alert now…she was waiting for Sam to open her mouth…
Sam made a terrified face; ‘’Chashni you topped the list…you are going to US’’ after breaking the news …he squealed in happiness hugging Radhika….Radhika took a minute to realize it was a good news…both the girls jumped hugging each other…dilip wiped his forehead and ligthly slapped both the girls on the head….Mala was watching the two girls… she cherished their bond…Radhika pulled out of hug…what about your result…Sam lovingly cupped Radhika’s face and replied…’’I qualified too but I am going to Singapore but for 6 months…I don’t want to stay here without you…for other 6 months I will engage myself in RTYHYM ‘’
Radhika smiled ; ‘’Did you give the good news to Uncle and Aunty…they will be proud of you’’
Sam made a bored face; ‘’Dad yes he is happy…but Mrs Khanna…she like the toppers not the one standing at second or third position and I am fourth…so leave it…Above all I am happy that I will be back in 6 months and can have Mala aunty’s food all for myself’’ Sam got up and hugged Mala…she always got the affection from Mala which she dearly missed from her Mom’’
Radhika; ‘’I am not going anywhere…I will speak to the department head and get it changed to Singapore …plus in my absence you will take my place here and my parents will forget me’’
Sam; ‘’Shut up…I know why are you saying this…but you are going…it’s my dream too…please chasni and you always say that distance never mattered between us…Above all there is something called as Skype’’
Radhika looked at Sam…they had been together since 3…they joined Doon school at the age of 7 and for next 10 yrs it was only Samaira and Radhikha for each other…all emotions came in Radhika’s eyes and started pouring…Sam hugged her and turned to Mala..’’Aunty today I want to have pav bhaji with lots of butter…’’ Mala pinched Sam’s cheek and went to the kitchen…. Sam looked at Radhika; ‘’Chashni go freshen up…you smell bad’’ Radhika punched her stomach and went Sam joined Dilip on the dining table.
Neil had got the message from Sam about Radhika qualifying for US university…he was happy…but not surprised he never doubted her capabilities…he knew whatever she did…she would put her mind and soul into it…and this was the quality he respected the most. Neil went to Prerna who was busy reading News Paper; ‘’Mom…Radhika and Sam qualified for exchange programme…Chashini is going to US for a year and Sam to Singapore…isn’t it a great news’’
Prerna nodded; ‘’I knew Radhika will qualify easily…she is smart cum hard worker…its not just the studies…even the dance the way she moves makes people watch her without blinking eyes…Sam is going to Singapore…she has never stayed without Radhika…I don’t know how many she will murder In Singapore’’
Neil smiled but there was little sadness in his eyes…Prerna saw that…she pressed his hand..’’Neil I know you love her and will miss her…but it’s just 6 months she will be back soon…and I think Mala should give us a party now I will call her.’’
Neil knew he wouldn’t see Sam for 6 months…that thought was too scary for him…he had to look at her once in 24hrs otherwise he would be disturb all day…he wanted to be close to her…sitting in Bird Song office he was still pondering when office boy gave him a file…send by Samrat…they had deal with 2 Singapore based companies and they wanted BS to shoot ad for them…a blissful smile appeared on Neil’s face. Samrat had done this purposely he knew Neil loved Sam and he liked him too…and this project will give him a good chance to be with her …and Sam might say yes for Neil.
Samrat and Dilip had loved each other’s children…as their own…when Radhika was born it was Piyali and Samrat who were with Mala…as Dilip was on an official tour Samrat was the first one to lift Radhika up in his arms…and he cared for her happiness dearly…he knew about Jai’s fondness …and he himself wanted Radhika to be a part of his family but with her own will
Jai was restless… he wouldn’t be able to see Radhika for a year…he had a fear that she might find someone better than him…he couldn’t imagine to lose her…Jai was in a deep thought when Piyali walked in she gently touched his shoulder; ‘’Jai what are you worried about…’’
Mom; ‘’I don’t want to lose Radhika…1 year is a big time…anything can happen in this one year…we can get engage and then she can leave…Can you please…’’
Piyali frowned and cut Jai off in the middle; ‘’Jai she is just 20… she has all the rights to dream…and remember one thing she is your Dad’s best friend’s daughter…that family had been standing with us in all our good and bad times…and I will not do anything to spoil this relationship…neither will you…’’
She rubbed her forehead in frustration and warned; ‘’I feel your Dad is right… I have spoiled you…Mala had kept a small get together …behave yourself’’ Jai nodded and after Piyali left he banged his phone on the floor in frustration.
New York City
Arjun stretched his body out of the 5000$ orthopedic bed…he quickly gulped the warm water kept on the side table and walked to the balcony… wearing his track pants…with bare torso …he gave one look to the neighborhood or to be exact to check how many chicks from neighboring apartments were waiting …to have just one glance at him…this adoration gave him a sense of achievement…a feeling of being the best…which he cherished dearly..Arjun had joined as an intern with a US’s top real estate giant THE GOLDEN GATE…his impressive personality and his shrewd brain and already made him famous among his peers…8 months of his MBA was left…his father had asked him to come back after that …but Arjun had decided he will make the choice this time and not Mr. Arnav Mehra…it was Mr. Arnav Mehra’s choice to send him away but now it will be his choice to go back or not to go back. Arjun went for a quick jog and got ready for work…he was working half day as he had classes to attend as well…As he entered the grand building…the beautiful blonde receptionist fluttered her eyelashes at him…he gave her a flirtatious smile…and walked in…Arjun had successfully sold 20 elite flats for his company earning them huge profit…they wanted to make him permanent …but Arjun Mehra had a bad habit…he would make people want him …and once he becomes their need…then he would make them wait and would get his way with them. Arjun got a call… his supervisor Susan Janet had called him to her cabin…a smirk came to his face. Susan was a in early 30s …a beautiful and successful women…she was in complete awe of Arjun…she would openly flirt with him without caring the decade of age difference between them and Arjun too went along as he hardly cared…Arjun walked into her cabin…and found her seductively sitting on the table…he understood…she was indeed waiting for him…she gestured Arjun to sit…she leaned to come close to his face…and her well manicured finger took a leisure walk on Arjun’s marble cut face…he showed no reaction…
Susan spoke softly; ‘’You are a remarkable young man…I have never worked with someone so good…I have proposition…make me happy and I will take you to the TOP’’ Arjun raised an eyebrow on the word TOP…
Arjun got up without breaking his eye lock with Susan locked her to the table came to her eye level and replied; ‘’I love being on the top…whatever the situation is…but I would love to get on the TOP on my strength rather getting it as a favour from a fox like you’’ Arjun expression changed his face was hard now he turned to leave
Susan fumed; ‘’I can finish your career…in GOLDEN GATE’’
Arjun; ‘’Go try for yourself….you don’t know how deep I stand here’’ he left without a glance he knew they needed him…he was not just an intern he was The ‘Arjun Mehra’… business was in his blood..and now he will work on his conditions.
Arnjun left from the office for his classes after that he had to go for Bike race challenge…he loved Adventure sports…and since it was a Friday today he will speak to the two most beloved people of his life Nandu and Neil.
Nandini and Arnav were having food together…Arnav looked at his niece…she took care of him like a dedicated daughter…Nandini was an intelligent female…but very down to earth…she stood like a rock beside Arnav and Arjun after his wife died she became Arjun’s mother and took care of him. Nandini’s father was Arnav’s elder brother…he had died when Nanini was 10 Arnav was not married that time he legally adopted her and after he married Arnav along with his wife loved Nandini as their own …when Arjun was born their family was complete. Nandini fell in love with Samrat…and got engage but he refused to marry two day before the ceremony as he was in love with Piyali since his teen years…Nandini could never forget him but she never complained she refused to marry anyone else…she gave up her carrier and stayed mostly in the library…or would help Arnav’s wife at home…Arnav tried his level best to settle her down but she did not agree…
Arnav; ‘’Nandu beta…I want you to join Bird Song’’
Nandini was shocked she looked at him all surprised; ‘’Chachu…you know I can’t…’’
Arnav; ‘’Because Samrat is working there…Nandu I invested in Bird Song because you asked me to save his company…I own 40% of Bird Song…along with Samrat and Prerna…I am the major share holder and after me you will be the same…I want you to think about it and I need a reply in positive’’
Nandini gave Arnav an impossible look…and thought ‘like father…like son’’
Nandini’s phone buzzed she looked at the screen ,smiled and answered the call; ‘’Hi my darling how are you?’’
Arjun smiled warmly on the other side; ‘’Now very good after hearing your voice…how are you Nandu…why don’t you come down here to my place…we will spend some good time together’’
Nandini; ‘’Arjun…this is your place not the one where you are staying right now…and Chachu’s health is not good…I cannot leave him…and you should also speak to him…your behaviour towards him is not justified’’
Arjun took a deep breath…he never answered her back, he quickly changed the topic and had a soothing conversation with his loving sister
Neil was driving back after having some good time with Sam he was very happy…he cherished the time he had spend some good time…he dialed Arjun’s no. and he quickly answered
Arjun; ‘’Hey bro…so finally you got some free time to speak to me’’
Neil; ‘’Don’t act…I call you every week…how are you? And how are your adventures going on…whats the score of the week.’’
Arjun laughed; ‘’had 3 break offs …and started with 4 new girls…what about you…still hanging on the child hood crush…Neil you can do much better than that…why are you running after a girl who doesn’t value your love…come to me…there are many who would fall for you in a sec.’’
Neil; ‘’You will understand when you will fall for someone’’
Arjun; ‘’That will never happen’’
Neil; ‘’Bro…never say never…who knows you might come across someone who steals your heart and drives you crazy’’
Arjun; ‘’Neil…Neil …please stop…can we talk of our bro-mance other than stupid romance of yours’’
Neil laughed…he thought of telling Arjun about Radhika but then stopped …he knew Arjun hated everything related to Samarat and Radhika was his daughter’s best friend…who knows Arjun might vent his anger out on Radhika…moreover Radhika was not interested in meeting him…she hated him for causing pain to Neil…Neil thought if these two mad people ever met it would be world war III and reason would be …my stupid one sided love. Neil ended his call with Arjun wishing him luck.
Arjun …ahh!!! I wish I had been a girl… but sadly I am LIFE – destiny…it’s my job to pay you back for your deeds. Soon Arjun Mehra will meet someone who will become his need… his desire…his passion and his madness…he was not even aware about the tornado waiting to hit him… she will question him, challenge him…trouble him drive him to the verge of madness…she will not be easy but hell difficult… his day will start with her … end with her and he will willingly cross oceans to be with her.
