The Emcee announced that dance floor will start now and get ready. Shaurya came to Mehak and ask for her hand as a gesture for dance. As the music starts both danced follow the rhythm gracefully. Both their eyes locked on each other. Shaurya’s hand grips on her waist harder Mehak with the head turned slightly downwards and facing away while looking upwards and holding a tight lipped smile she looked more innocent, juvenile, playful and secretive. The shy smile makes Shaurya’s heart beat fast. Shaurya lean closer to her and say near her ears you are like angel today my very own angel. Mehak cups his face and say thank you Shaurya for all the surprises, he replied there is still some more surprises so save the thank you for later. She looked at him with a bright smile. The music over and all clapped. Later one of the investor called for Shaurya and they made a toss for the upcoming year. Mehak look at him attentively.

Every single day my love for you grow more and more. I am drowned in your love. We got married, we went thru so many ups and downs. But you thought me how to handle every situations calmly. When I am worried you took away my sorrows, when I was sick you been my medicine, you were the reason for my smile. You were the reason for me to being alive. You are my center of universe. No matter who were there for me I know my Mehak will be there for me. I just want to start this New Year in a special way. Mehak stands in dazed hearing each words from Shaurya. He started counting 10 and give a kiss on below her right neck, then 9 to her left neck, 8 at her right ear lobe, 7 at her left ear lobe. 6 at her right cheek, 5 at her left cheek, 4 at her chin, 3 at her forehead, 2 at her nose and 1 he said Happy New Year jaan and captured her lips with a passionate kiss. Fireworks brightened the entire skyline. Screaming of people with New Year wishes all around the town. Mehak reciprocate to his kiss and he felt her arms snaking behind his nape and her fingers now buried in his hair. Both break off from the kiss as they need to breath. Mehak kissed on his forehead and said I love you Shaurya and hid her face on his chest and he wraps his around her. He nuzzled at the softness of her neck. They commence the New Year in a sweet romantic gestures. He keep her in his warmness and both admired the fireworks took selfie. Mehak thanked Shaurya for being her husband, her friend and everything in her life.

He lock the balcony door and lead her to the TV room where there is array of sweet desserts like churros, cakes, pastries and hot chocolate fondue on the table. Mehak’s eye open in temptations. Shaurya dipped a large strawberry into the chocolate fondue and offered to Mehak. Later both sat together and fed each other the sweet delicacy with love and made more love till dawn.
Next morning Mehak wakes up and she opens the curtain of the room, bright sunrays hits the bed and Shaurya cover himself with the blanket. Mehak goes to him and enters the blanket, and lie near to him wishing him with kisses Happy New Year patidev. He open his eyes faintly and roll her over to his side and caresses her with his stubbles which makes her giggles out. She struggles and ask Shaurya to let her go but he said I won’t today we will be on the bed whole day like this. Then he ask her for a kiss, Mehak eyes twinkled and query him back yesterday night you had lots of kiss still not enough is it? Shaurya said I will never say is enough I need more and more. He just captured her lips again and make her loss herself in him again.
After all the cute romantic sessions, both freshen up and was at the dressing table. Shaurya came behind her. She showed him the neck and shoulder what he did to her last night. She need to cover with concealer and shawl so no one can see. He smiled and replied her my body also got scratch marks because there was wild cat on my bed which did all these to me. Mehak’s eye open in bewilderment. She gently hit on his arms and both went to the restaurant at the hotel for breakfast. They enjoyed their breakfast session and walked around the hotel sprawling lawn hand in hand enjoying the fresh air. In between the cute fights which they always have. Then they left to Khanna mansion.
