MMZ- Married by Fate- Chapter 24

Hello friends …hope you all are doing good …I have been late in posting updates and I am sorry for that….life is too busy… I won’t be posting DPO or MMZ till 27 th July…as I will out of station …sorry to keep you waiting will post as soon as I am back…below is the next one…do let me know how was it

Chapter 24

Arjun and his gang accept Radhika were busy in packing….they were leaving for Delhi… Mala had packed lot of food with them, specially for Sam…who had alredy asked Mala to prepare a list of snacks which she can take with her to Mumbai…Radhika knocked the guest room and Neil answered he looked at Radhika and smiled….Neil called Teji and dragged him out so that Radhika-Arjun can have few moments…Arjun sat on the bed and watched her walking to him…Radhika stopped at a distance Arjun saw some confusion and hesitation in her body language…he extended his hand and pulled her forward..He locked her body in his arms and looked up to her face….which was still bent down… Arjun smiled ; ‘’If are going to look only towards the floor then I might have to lie down on the floor…’’

Radhika smiled and looked at Arjun; ‘’Sir … I know everyone is very happy with our decision to give this relationship a chance…but if you want to think again…please do it…I won’t coplain’’

Arjun took a deep breath and stood up towering her….he did not release her body from his arms…Arjun looked up at the door and spoke; ‘’Neil…please see no one enters the room’’ Radhika looked up shocked

Neil answered chuckling; ‘’Thanks for offering me the job of door keeper along with copywriter’’

Radhika; ‘’What is Neil doing outside’’

Arjun; ‘’Guarding the door…so that I can answer you …’’ Arjun held her by arms and slowly pushed her to the wall…he leaned to her ear level and whispered; ‘’If some else would have asked me to give a second thought about my relationship…I would have throttled that person…but what to do…its you…and my condition is hopeless when it comes to you…my anger leaves my body …I feel as if I am floating in air…’’

Radhika looked at his face smiled and then laughed; Arjun Sir …floating in air…too funny’’

Arjun watched her giggling happily…lowered himself and kissed her cheek warmly; ‘’take care of yourself….and come soon…its me who needs to improve not you…but please don’t think about your decision again…I need you …I want you…I love you’’

Arjun kissed her forehead…and moved back…Radhika smiled and walked to the door but before leaving she spoke again… ‘’Sir I know you don’t want to think again but please do…who knows something better might be waiting for you’’

Arju gave up; ‘’Come back to Mumbai…we will discuss in detail…now run before I grab you’’ Radhika was startled she quickly ran out of his sight…

Neil came inside the room and found Arjun sitting and in a deep thought …he sat next to him…observed him and then spoke; ‘’Mr Devdas…you got Paro…there is no trouble of Chandramukhi…then why do you look so flushed up’’

Arjun; ‘’She keeps on doubting my decision…she thinks getting back together is a mistake…she believes she is not upto my expectations…don’t know how to make her believe’’

Neil smiled got up and Leaned against the wall… ; ‘’Who should be blamed for her in-security and low confidence… think Arjun you will have the answers…she is not the Radhika who came to Mumbai 6 months back…that one was positive full of life…and always ready to spread smiles…but this Radhika is scared timid…and not sure about herself…Arjun do you think Anuj cloud have misbehaved with old Radhika…I don’t think so…Arjun she kept on going hurting herself to save Sam…and even you from Nandini….but in this process..her self esteem and confidence was crushed by her own people… she is a strong girl..she is still standing …some one else in her place…would have left everything and eloped to a place where no one cloud find her’’

Arjun Knew…even he was to be blamed for this changed Radhika…he looked at Neil; ‘’What should I do to bring her back’’

Neil; ‘’Make her feel special…tell her why is she perfect for you…prove it to her that she is the most beautiful girl for you…now don’t ask me how should you do it ..because procedures differs on case to case basis’’
Arjun smiled; ‘’thanks love guru…and where is Teji?’’

Neil; ‘’Wagging his tail behind Nia…he said I can’t understand what pain of separation is…’’

Arjun and Neil looked at each other and burst out laughing….Ankush informed them of cab’s arrival and moved out of greet everyone before leaving for the exit…Sam hugged Mala and Riddhima and at the end she gave Radhika a longing hug; ‘’ Come soon Chashni…will be waiting for you’’ Radhika nodded positive…

Teji was still ogling at Nia with a sad face…neil elbowed him…’’We got so much love and respect now don’t wash it out …if anyone know what’s running in your head… your receive good punches’’

Teji; ‘’Am I not suitable for her..’’

Teji’s question startled Neil… he didn’t knew Teji was going serious …Neil smiled; ‘’Give some time…if she misses you… great otherwise we will think of something else’’ Teji smiled finally…

Nia went to Arjun who was talking to Dilip; ‘’Jiju… I have my internship in Mumbai with a pharmacy firm..can you please help me find a good place to stay..’’ Teji was about to jump and suggest his place but Neil grabbed him

Arjun patted her cheek; ‘’Let me know when are you reaching Mumbai…’’ The gang left for Delhi…before getting into the cab….Arjun turned and looked at Radhika…she turned pink…when Nia and Riddhima coughed on Arjun’s move…she gave Arjun a shy smile…before he finally drove off..Nia gave radhika an envelope…Radhika gave her a questioning look….Nia smiled; ‘’Jiju gave …’’ Radhika was about to open the envelope when Nia whispered in her ear ; ‘’he asked to check privately’’

Radhika locked her room and opened the envelope….it had a letter and her anklet which she had lost..and later found in the box in the Arjun’s cupboard…she opened the letter….and a smile covered her lips

My Panoti…

I am returning you this anklet because I don’t need it any more… I kept it as a remembrance since you were not with me…but this anklet was incomplete without the other one ….even I am incomplete without you… I know you are just wearing a single one….wear this one and complete them…Radhika I know it wont be easy to complete our story …I made mistakes…and I am ready to repent…but need you…please trust me once…and I will prove myself to you….

Oh I forgot …. Before you reach Mumbai…you need to perfect yourself in using a word A-R-J-U-N(radhika blinked in confusion)…. Stop blinking….yes that’s my name ….its not ‘Arjun Sir’ ….want to hear Arjun out from your lips…and keep your phone with you as I will call you every hour…

Arjun

Radhika giggled after reading Arjun’s letter…his letter was kiddish…looks like he wrote a letter for the first time….but a sudden thought took her smile away…a man like him would never need to write a letter to a girl…any girl would come running to his arms…who knows may be he is doing all this because they were married …marriage…it’s a big word… and he might have pitied her state…her family…may be this was just a part of repentance…she huffed took off the other anklet off and locked them both in her cupboard.

Arjun was inside the car with others moving towards Delhi Airport…he kept looking out of the window…enjoying the scenic view with a smile on his lips….his mind was only on Radhika…he was in his own world…Arjun took a deep sigh and turned his eyes towards his gang…Sam was watching him with a smirk…Teji confused…and Neil who had been munching on a sandwich was about to eat his fingers staring at Arjun… Arjun asked; ‘’What’’

Sam; ‘’Same pinch What??’’

Neil started singing; ‘’Pehla pehla pyaar hai….pehli pehli baar hai’’ Arjun…glared at him but his guard was already down….and Teji took the advantage of the situation reciting Jab tak hai Jaan SRK lines wining the most deadly glare of Arjun Mehra….

Once they boarded the flight Arjun just kept staring at the screen saver which had Radhika’s picture…he had clicked the picture during Pari’s function ….his mind was made up.. he had to do something to make her rejoin bird song…it was necessary to keep her infront of his eyes to make her believe on his feelings…moreover Arjun knew he was too possessive about her…she was a kind of girl that every guy desired…she was honest, giving and someone who go overboard for the ones she loved…and he wanted all this for himself…. He had fear of losing her again..he didn’t wanted her too change her decision regarding their relationship…

After getting out of Airport…they greeted each other and left for their respective places…Sam and Neil went together…Sam happily looped her arm around Neil’s and rested her head on his shoulder while heading to her place…Neil smiled at her and softly spoke; ‘’Sammy we should talk ‘’

Sam; ‘’About what’’

Neil; ‘’About us….our life’’

Sam; ‘’What is there to talk we are commited, we love each other and are going to spend our life together…’’

Neil; ‘’Sammy…falling in love is easy…staying in love is difficult’’

Sam detached herself from Neil…frowned and asked; ‘’What do you mean???’’

Neil; ‘’If we want a future together….we should talk about it…I have questions…I expect you too have them…lets discuss them before moving forward’’

Sam couldn’t understand the reason for all this; ‘’Neil is it necessary’’ Neil nodded positive….they decided to discuss next day after office…Neil dropped Sam home…before heading towards his house…

Arjun unlocked the house…and entered his house humming some song…which even he didn’t knew where he picked it up…Arjun took a quick shower and was standing infront of his dresser…he observed himself head to toe…and also his right and left profile…his POV; ‘’everything looks fine…I guess my looks are not a problem for Radhika…even if it is… I will change what ever she wants me to…’’ Arjun smiled looking at his reflection and then laughed at his thought …he was so deeply in love with her that he had started doubting everything about himself…he had a fear what if she rejected him…. Arjun quickly pulled his mobile and dialled Radhika…he dialled 2-3 times…but got no response…anger started entering his nerves…he dialled again and she answered…but by this Arjun had already lost his cool ; ‘’Hell Radhika…I asked you to be close to you cell …but you never listen…where were you…why weren’t you responding…don’t repeat this next time I am warning you’’ Radhika kept mum….Arjun got more frustrated ; ‘’Now why are you quite…say some thing’’

Radhika; ‘’Waiting for you to calm down…there is no point I give you reasons…you won’t believe me…you will need a proof…so its better I let you scream your lungs and stay quite’’

Arjun immediately turned softer…; ‘’Why do you feel I won’t trust you’’

Radhika; ‘’because you never believed what I said in the past…’’

Arjun’s heart pained; ‘’That was different… I love you…and I trust you…will you tell me now the reason..’’

Radhika; ‘’nothing which is important to you…can we talk later…Ma is calling me’’ Arjun agreed and disconnected…he felt a kind of greif in her voice… Arjun thought for a moment and called Nia he knew she will tell him everything….Nia narrated to Arjun how Riddhima had a big fight with her husband…and they were fighting over Pari…and her husband warned her that he would go to court for the custody of Pari if Riddhima refuses to go back…Nia also told her that in anger Riddhima has also taken the decision file for divorce …because of all this Radhika had been blaming herself for her sister’s misery …. Arjun assured Nia that everything will be fine…..gave her a message for Ankush to speak to him and disconnected….

Arjun called his lawyer friend and detailed him on everything….he cursed himself for bringing so much pain in the life of so many people… Arjun retired for night without having his dinner…he knew the road to win Radhika completely was difficult…he has to do something so she gets her confidence back…then he will try winning her heart…

It was morning and Neil was getting ready…whatever he was going to ask Sam would either clear their path…or will pull them apart till they both were ready. Sam on the other hand was worried about losing Neil..she thought her path was clean now… but Neil’s words had scared her but she decided to face whatever it was… whole day in Bird Song went quite for all the 3 of them…they all had their own battles to fight…Arjun had bring the old bubbly Radhika back….Neil wanted some answers…and Sam she feared losing what she thought was forever her’s

Neil and Sam left after greeting Arjun….Neil took Sam to Juhu beach…they walked hand in hand quietly for sometime when Neil initiated the conversation ; ‘’Sam did you ever loved Arjun…’’

Sam was shocked…but decided to answer; ‘’I was attracted towards him…he approached me in a way that no one had ever done before…actually no one dared….Neil I was hurt that time…Mom’s coldness towards me…Mom-Dad’s differences…I was miserable….may be because of this I got attracted to him’’

Neil moved ahead..detaching his hand from Sam; ‘’You means he was thete for you when no one else was’’

Sam; ‘’No Neil…its just that …he made me feel like a girl…those appreciative glances and his intimidating personality…I mean any girl would fall for him…and we make mistakes…..I made it too’’

Neil; ‘’How do you feel when you see Radhika-Arjun together’’

Sam; ‘’Acutally good…because… I feel that my burden got a little less after giving Radhika her happiness…and Neil to be very frank…when Radhika walked away….I realized …she was more important to me than Arjun….I missed her cried for her…I just wanted to turn the time wheel around to get her back in my life…’’

Neil smiled; ‘’Are you sure you love me’’

Sam; ‘’Now you proved I gave you a perfect name IDIOT in bold….you think I would have kissed you just like that…Neil I am not a serial kisser…you aremy first kiss…and the last one’’

Neil; ‘’What can you do for me’’

Sam; ‘’Just ask’’

Neil; ‘’Will you walk away if I want you too…will you give you life for me’’

Sam; ‘’No…I will not walk away…I will walk with you or behind you…and why would I give my life and leave you alive to enjoy….no Neil I will live this life for you…with you….to bring smile on you face with each passing moment’’

Neil smiled wide; ‘’you passed my test…so you have any questions’’

Sam; ‘’Yes….are you going to get me an icecream because I am tired answering your questions…’’ Neil pulled Sam to him…pecked her forehead…and took her to the nearest ice-cream parlor…

Radhika was sitting in her room with her diary in her hand….she wanted to write to divert her mind but nothing came to her mind….she threw it in the corner and stood near the window… Radhika was still thinking when she got a call from Arjun; ‘’Why are you still awake’’

Radhika; ‘’How can you say I was awake and not been woken by your call’’

Arjun; ‘’you believe or not but I can understand your silence…so wifey what’s up’’

Radhika’s heart skipped a beat…she replied; ‘’Trying to write something but not able to’’

Arjun smiled; ‘’Ok …them come to the window and look at the moon…’’ Radhika did as he said and then Arjun spoke… ‘’its beautiful right… now listen ….the moon the sky… is wondering why… what shines so bright ….in arms of night…bewildered it looked at stars…scracted its bald head for hours…then defeated it searched … found something that glowed in dark…it wondered on its power and the answer was Arjun’s star…’’

Radhika giggled ; ‘’Not bad Sir you can write nursery rhymes ….who‘s that star’’

Arjun; ‘’you ‘’ R.adhika turned quite and blushed…she bit her lower lip….Arjun spoke again; ‘’don’t bite your lip…it does something to me…’’

Radhika blinked ‘’how do you know….’?’’

Arjun smiled; ‘’because I understand your silence…Good night Radhika’’ Radhika disconnected leaned against the wall and took a deep breath…leaned against the wall closed her eyes and smiled…Arjun was still looking at the moon he whispered… ‘’you look so dull infront of my Radhika…

Pre cap; Radhika in Mumbai

    Oh gauri…. It was beautiful so beautiful…. I waited for a Long time to read it. Trust me it was worth d wait. But I found it a bit short. Was it short compared to ur normal ff size… Trust me it doesn’t make a difference to d beauty of it… But just felt tat it was slightly small. I loved Arjuns besottedness. Poor arjun can’t handle rads insecurity. Arjuns nursery rhyme was cute. The way he understood her silences were beautiful??. Poignantly sweet. Nesams heart to heart talk was fantastic…. I loved SAMs answer… I really wished ardhika tooooo would start their convo.. But ardhikas romance tooooo was really sweet…. Rads shyness coupled with arjuns boldness is a treat to watch. Now for some questions …
    1) when rads come to Mumbai who will pick her from airport? Will arjun know b aware tat she is coming to Mumbai ?
    2) who will convince her to join birdsong?
    3) will she b able to forget all d bad memories or when she will come to bs wil she recollect thoz?
    4) will she trust arjun if not will he b hurt by her mistrust?
    5) will arjun feel bad tat she isn’t staying with him?
    6) will Sam help her in gaining back her confidence?
    7) Though rads love him she is pushing him towards someonelse, more pretty and sophisticated. It literally looks like she is waiting for d axe to fall or in other words Wat he feels for her is pity and tat he will soon lose interest in her and go on for a trendier and prettier gal. When is tat equation going to change?
    8) when r v going to c jealous rads ?
    9) when will she become d old confident self?
    10) with regards to rids , I thot atleast her hubby might b supportive. I really wish to c her happy tooo.
    By d way gauri am sad to know u wil b away till 27 th. I know u need ur brk. Still I will miss u and ur updates. Thanks for d brilliant ffs. You r a fantastic writer. Hope u enjoy ur vacation .may you stay blessedly happy always… Take care.

    • Gauri

      Thanks for your beautiful words RG 🙂 now since I am in a hurry I will answer quickly 🙂 both Neil and ARjun will go to pick up Rads 🙂 convincing her will take some time 🙂 no forgetting everything will not be easy ….she will have flashes which will time and again bring tears to her eyes 🙂 she will trust him then doubt him and then trust him again …he is going to work hard 🙂 no arjun will be supportive in her staying at Neil’s place 🙂 yes Sam will help her 🙂 it will take her time…till she believs he loves her and is not pitying her…. 🙂 jealous Rads yup still to come 🙂 some more time for the old one 🙂 her hubby will change 🙂 loadsof love stay blessed 🙂

    Well about Ardhika..they came from heaven and whatever they do it will bless to watch them. I am so eager to meet them in Mumbai and how arjun goona release from her inferior thought…wery very excited about that…Nesam is always cute.. and sam she spoke her heart out…and those words are really true….
