Hello this is VHM back with an FF on IB…I will deal with all the three pairs of IB ….please ignore the grammatical and spelling mistakes….
Tej ‘’Shivaay ….. ‘’
Shivaay went upto him and bent to take his blessings……Tej didn’t want to create any hope in Shivaay by blessing him openly…so he blessed him in his heart and silently looked at him…..Shivaay looked raising his head still bending down and he saw Tej not looking at him…he stood up
Shivaay had tears in his eyes……..Tej was melting but pretended to be unaffected…..
Shivaay ‘’Bade papa’’
Tej ‘’Tej…call me Tej Singh Oberoi’’
Shivaay was shocked ‘’Sorry Bade…I mean Sorry Mr.Tej Singh Oberoi……you here?’’
Tej ‘’I thought you left Mumbai…but I am surprised you are still here’’
Shivaay ‘’it’s true I left Mumbai… but you very well know why am I here….. I also know you might have received the Invite from IIRO and would have seen my name in invite…..so probably you might have come here to check if I am the same Shivaay…am I right Mr.Tej Singh Oberoi?’’
Tej ‘’smart as usual…yes I did come to know whether you are the same or not’’
Shivaay ‘’Thank you for the compliment…yes I am the same Shivaay …..but you please relax…I am here only for the work I have taken up…so you can trust me, that my intentions are good and I have not come here to meet you or your family in your home……’’
Tej ‘’good to know …I don’t want any drama in Oberoi mansion once again’’
Shivaay ‘’you wouldn’t have any drama there, because I am not going to step in OM…this is my word to you’’
Tej ‘’great…so when are you leaving from here?’’
Shivaay ‘’next Thursday…and will never come back’’
Tej ‘’awesome…I expect you can keep your word’’
Tej POV : I wish you stay back here but my ideologies are not allowing me…I know even you wouldn’t agree to come if I ask you right now to step in…..i just hope everything get’s fine and you are back…because this time even I want MY SHIVAAY back in Oberoi mansion…for many reasons but importantly I want to pay back my brother Shakthi with this happens in favour of helping me in my difficult times…..secondly I want my Omkara and Jhanvi back in my life…….. thirdly It’s high time , I want to sit back and relax giving all the responsibilities to all my sons, even you……..i had definitely kicked you out…but I have missed you equally……I cannot prove this, but I feel this……now I will do something which… you infact no one would ever expect…’’
He came out of thoughts when Shivaay spoke
Shivaay ‘’I will try my level best’’
Tej ‘’fine I will leave now’’
Shivaay ‘’yeah…’’ he nodded rubbing his forehead
Tej turned to leave , walked few steps and again turned towards Shivaay
Tej ‘’this is unusual of me , but I must compliment you…you indeed are smart and intelligent…you have grown up to this level in a year without any support …good job’’ he said and turned, smiled and left without listening to any response of Shivaay…..
Shivaay thanked him in his heart , smiled and left towards his room……….
Mahi and Sahil took one room and Anika and Shivaay in another room………
Shivaay reached his room and was smiling…Anika noticed this…….
Anika ‘’Shivaay why are you smiling?’’
Shivaay explained what happened at the reception…Anika was shocked…….
Anika ‘’did Tej uncle really compliment you?’’
Shivaay ‘’yes, may be in this one year he might have changed his way of dealing with the persons he don’t like and this may be one of his methods..or it might be genuine too…whatever it is …I am happy he complimented me ’’
Anika ‘’why don’t you give a try to resume your relation Shivaay?’’
Shivaay sadly smiled and said ‘’Anika , I am still illegitimate and I know the ideologies of bade papa…he cannot throw away that in one go ….even I cannot go and say that ‘’everything is fine between us bade papa…you gave compliments to me , so we will reconciliate’’ …this is not possible Anika …please understand.…moreover , mera zameer aise nahi manega Anika…..so for this life we cannot be together again…’’
Anika ‘’but Shivaay’’
Shivaay ‘’Anika …I already said before coming here…don’t expect anything because you will get disappointed…I am reminding you again…let’s forget this…we have come here for some work and we will go back after our work is done…I am happy because all the days we are in Mumbai…. Om, gauri, rudra, Saumya, dadi, Prinku, and badi maa will meet us and we will spend a good time with them…….be satisfied with it……and one more thing please don’t try to do something to bring me and Oberois closer…..it’s absolutely not necessary…and I don’t want you or anyone to fall in trouble amidst all these…..i hope you will listen to me…’’
Anika POV ‘’sorry Shivaay but this time I will make everything fine…….this is my promise to you..i still have guilt that because of me all this happened and now I want to make everything right…hope whatever I am thinking goes well and we will be together…..’’
While Anika was in thoughts…Shivaay sat on the bed and opened his laptop and was reading the invite ………he stood up from bed in surprise
Anika ‘’what happened ? why are you so shocked?’’
Shivaay showed her the invite…Anika looked at him……
Shivaay ‘’yes , he is the same’’
Shivaay remembered how he insulted them and the after incidents……
Anika ‘’I think it’s time you apologise to them…and you should…….’’
Shivaay ‘’no..i can’t do this’’
Anika ‘’what’s wrong…you very well understand now , what was their situation then….with your one apology many things can change……I hope Prinku’s life will be back on track too’’
Shivaay ‘’this is too early to think’’
Anika ‘’but ‘’
Shivaay ‘’but…I will apologise to Mr.Chabbra for my behaviour then……and listen I will not aplogise t for Prinku , I will apologiseonly because I want to clear off the remaining guilt residing in me‘’
Anika smiled and hugged him..he reciprocated
Shivaay got immersed in work and Anika was busy with something else when Anika’s mobile rang…..
Anika went out of room in pretext of not disturbing Shivaay and entered Mahi’s room……
She locked the door and put the mobile on Speaker, Sahil was sleeping ……..
Anika ‘’hello Om’’
Om ‘’bhabhi, we all are starting towards Ohri’s , come soon we will meet there’’
Anika ‘’Saumya and Gauri?’’
Om ‘’I will be picking them on my way and we will come’’
Anika ‘’fine , I and Mahi will reach there’’
Om ‘’okay..see you in sometime’’
They ended the call………..
Anika turned towards Mahi and he said ‘’I am coming with you Anika, don’t worry…I know you will do everything to give me and Shivaay our happiness back’’
Anika smiled and lifted Sahil ……..she took him to Shivaay
Anika ‘’Shivaay , Sahil is asleep and I promised GaMya to meet them and go for shopping…so I am leaving Sahil with you here…if he wakes up then take him to his friend’s house…I hope you don’t mind’’
Shivaay ‘’fine …you go and enjoy, I will have fun with Sahil after he wakes up…he is my champ ‘’
Anika ‘’great, I am taking Mahi , he wants to meet OmRu, till OmRu comes he will be with us’’
Shivaay ‘’poor Mahi, now he has to lift Shopping bags of yours till OmRu arrive’’
Anika ‘’ha ha very funny’’
Shivaay ‘’ok bye…now go and don’t disturb me’’ he smiled
Anika felt him cute and immediately locked her lips with Shivaay’s and with that sudden action Shivaay lost control on himself…he reciprocated……..after they parted for Oxygen………….
Shivaay held her shoulders , looking into her eyes spoke ‘’what was this surprise for?’’
Anika ‘’nothing …you were so cute while saying bye and smiling , so’’
Shivaay ‘’I will see you tonight….’’ He winked
Anika ‘’shut up Shivaay’’ she shied and bid him good bye
Shivaay wiped his lips and smiled within himself and immersed himself in his work….
All of them met and GauRu asked at a time eagerly
GauRu ‘’what’s the plan Bhabhi/didi?’’
Anika ‘’I have to bring Kamini ji out from underground..that’s very important’’
Om ‘’but how?
Anika ‘’we need Mahi to appear in media…in every possible media…’’
Om smiled understanding why Anika said so
Om ‘’Bhabhi is saying right….i understand why she is saying so’’
Rudra ‘’tho hame bhi samjhaoo’’
Om ‘’we know Kamini ji is behind money not behind any relation….if Mahi appears in media as business man , she will definitely come out to meet him and claim her rights as his mother…so bringing him in media is like giving food to a rat/mouse before trapping’’
Anika ‘’right…..this time I don’t want to waste my time in searching her instead I want herself to come out…but question is how will be bring Mahi infront of media’’
Rudra ‘’but that will anyways happen on next Monday, so why to put additional effort’’
Gauri ‘’we cannot waste time till next Monday because they have time only till next Thursday and if this plan fails then we have to think of other plan too and for all this we need time’’
Everyone were thinking
Sumo ‘’I have a plan’’
Everyone looked at her to speak
Sumo ‘’you have come for IIRO event and Mahi bhayya is very much part of IIRO because of S.A.M.S , as he is the financial head , so if we can plan an interview with Mahi bhayya then he will be in media’’
Rudra ‘’awesome idea…this is perfect, no one will get doubt too’’
Om ‘’but how will we convince Shivaay about this interview?’’
Anika ‘’leave that to me’’
Gauri ‘’Om we must make sure every news channel and paper publishes it’’
Om ‘’yes , I will take care of it…..don’t worry’’
Anika ‘’Mahi get prepared to give interview, if we succeed we have every chance to achieve what we are trying to’’
Mahi ‘’I will Anika, don’t worry, in the past one year , Shivaay has given me so much confidence and experience that now I can speak what I have learnt through my experience’’
They smiled and everyone placed their hands on one another’s……..
Anika ‘’I have something else to share with you’’
Anika explained about Tej meeting Shivaay in the morning……..Everyone were shocked to hear that and were forming their own opinions about Tej, but the most affected was Omkara……..
Anika ‘’Om why are you sad? Infact you must be happy because Tej uncle gave compliments to Shivaay knowing he is not related anymore to him’’
Om ‘’That’s the reason Anika…I know he apologised but he complimenting Shivaay knowing Shivaay is none to him is something I cannot digest……….i hope he doesn’t do anything that will make me go against him forever’’
Gauri ‘’Om nothing of that sort will happen…we must be thinking positive ‘’
Anika ‘’I think we must leave now…Om and Rudra you will take care of Press conference and media, Gauri and Sumo , you both will ensure that everything goes smooth as we planned and no one should be aware of this except we ….Mahi you will prepare for the interview and I will convince Shivaay ‘’
Everyone agreed and left towards their respective places, only to meet for dinner with Shivaay the same night……..
—————-HOTEL ZODIAC , Mumbai
Anika came back and greeted Shivaay
Shivaay ‘’Anika , Sahil ne zid kiya ki woh apne dost ke yaha rahega …….but I said that OmRu will pick him while coming here for dinner…don’t worry I messaged Om to pick Sahil ……’’
Shivaay ‘’why are you nervous…do you want to say something?’’
Shivaay held her and made her sit…..
Shivaay ‘’from when have you started to think before speaking….. that too with me?’’
Anika ‘’whatever I might be saying can make you annoyed so…’’
Shivaay ‘’no more puzzles …just speak out ‘’
Anika ‘’Shivaay I feel that we are not giving Mahi his due credit’’
Shivaay ‘’what? What do you mean?’’
Anika ‘’Shivaay, Mahi has been helping us from past one year and has bought the restaurant business to this heights along with you…..but’’
Anika ‘’but you or I have been always the face of S.A.M.S and rest of our businesses and he stayed back in background which according to me is not correct’’
Shivaay was thinking………
Anika ‘’so I want Mahi to face the world …with confidence…he must also come to fore and let everyone know that along with you , he too is part of this success …’’
Shivaay was still in thoughts
Anika ‘’shivaay are you listening..’’
Anika ‘’Shivaay are you annoyed ? I am sorry but I didn’t mean that you are doing wrong with him , I just thought he should also be known to outer world ……….everyone must even applaud him, he is your brother and this is your duty too’’
Anika was looking at Shivaay innocently……..
Shivaay looked at her and smiled
Shivaay ‘’you are right Anika …why didn’t I think about this ? Mahi should also be the face, he should be known , his efforts must be known , I will see to that he gets the credit for our and his success’’
Anika ‘’thank you so much Shivaay…I thought you would feel bad if I say so’’
Shivaay pulled her closer and looking into her eyes said
Shivaay ‘’thank you Anika…I am so lucky to get a wife like you…because you explain me things in a way that even if I wish I cannot find any fault…thank you for reminding me my duty towards Mahi’’
Anika smiled looking into his eyes and was about to say something when Shivaay brushed her lips…..
Anika ‘’Shivaay what are you doing’’
Shivaay ‘’the same thing which you did few hours before’’
Anika ‘’Shivaay not now..you said tonight….’’
Shivaay didn’t allow her to speak anything more and pulled her on to bed….he got over her and acquired dominance over her…she was responding rhythmically.…they both entered into another world for sometime and finally satisfied their needs….after the beautiful war they laid back cuddling each other under the duvet and finding peace in each other’s solace……
Finally after sometime they got up to get ready………..
Shivaay entered the washroom when Anika messaged Om that She convinced Shivaay to bring Mahi into limelight……..
Om replied that he will make next move …
Anika and Shivaay got ready and were about to meet OmRu and GaMya when they heard Knock on the door………
Shivaay ‘’Think of Devil and Devil arrive’’
Rudra ‘’Not fair Shivaay bhayya…I am not Devil’’
Anika ‘’haawww Shivaay, how can you call my devar Devil….’’
Shivaay ‘’ya right I must have said think of devil’S’ and devil’S’ arrive…..right Anika …I forgot about you …my two cute little devils…’’
Anika was about to say when Shivaay said ‘’I am feeling hungry so let’s go for dinner’’…they left towards the restaurant
—————–ZODIAC CONTINENTAL RESTAURANT
Shivaay ‘’so what’s up Om ..how’s business now’’
Om ‘’all good… as you are always there with us’’
Shivaay ‘’I did nothing….you both put all the efforts’’
Om ‘’since we are talking about business I have an idea ‘’
Shivaay ‘’what’’ he spoke while eating
Om looked at Mahi and Mahi nodded to go ahead…….
Om ‘’Shivaay I am planning for a press conference where all the Print, Digital and online media would be present….i want to cover the upcoming IIRO event …from tomorrow guests will start arriving…so I am planning to take the interviews of all the guests in GOBE ..which will make everyone know about GOBE apart from business issues……..publicity and business both…so thought of planning to start with you first…what say?’’
Shivaay ‘’seems interesting…but me in GOBE…. tomorrow …will bade papa…’’
Rudra ‘’Shivaay bhayya…anyways Papa will come face to face with you on Monday ..so what if it’s tomorrow….we will handle papa…you don’t worry…just say yes, that you will give the interview’’
Anika looked at Shivaay and signalled about Mahi, he smiled and nodded
Shivaay ‘’do one thing Om…why don’t you take the interview of Mahi?’’
Mahi ‘’Shivaay …why me…I mean I am not …’’
Shivaay ‘’Mahi …I think you must be known to everybody…today our success is also because of you…so go ahead and give the interview …let everyone know who Mahi is and what he can do…I should have done this much before but I don’t know why I didn’t…sorry for that…but I really want you to appear before media and let them know what you are…also if anything goes wrong don’t worry I am with you and I will handle…’’
Shivaay turned towards Om and said ‘’Om I hope you don’t mind if Mahi gives the interview…trust me he is now an expert in financial dealings’’
Om ‘’perfect…I will be more than happy…thanks Shivaay’’
Anika held Gauri’s hand under the table and smirked seeing Rudra and Om…….they all smiled
Sahil ‘’ohhoo…you guys always talk about business and bore me…I am getting irritated’’
Rudra ‘’mein hoon na ..chal ham Deepika Padukone ke baare mein baat karthe hain aur waha jaake Ice cream bhi khathe hain’’
Sumo ‘’what about your gym diet Rudra ?’’
Rudra ‘’I will not eat for two days…and you eat stuff on my behalf ‘’
Sahil ‘’Rudra bhayya I will prefer to go with Saumya …because I cannot see you starving for two days’’
Sumo and Sahil left……..
Everyone spent the dinner time happily and left to their places……….
OmRu and GaMya stepped in, Gauri and Saumya went to their rooms
OmRu went to Tej who was in his study room
Tej ‘’Om, Rudra you both here at this time …everything okay?’’
Rudra ‘’everything is fine papa…we wanted to talk something important…I hope you have time’’
Tej ‘’off course’’
Om ‘’Mr.Tej I wanted to actually discuss about a plan that I made to raise image of GOBE and promote GOBE , using the upcoming IIRO meet……’’
Tej frowned his eyebrows
Om ‘’Mr.Tej I am planning to hold press conference which will cover the mini interviews of each and every guest who are attending the conference from tomorrow…this will not only keep GOBE in news but also will be a value added addition to the upcoming event in our hotel…if you agree we can inform print , digital and online media’’
Tej ‘’sounds interesting’’
Rudra ‘’if we execute I think it will be more exciting’’
Om glared at Rudra angrily and Rudra bent his head down……..
Tej ‘’fine give me half an hour I will discuss with Gogoi and let you know’’
Om ‘’Mr.Tej ….do this as fast as you can because I have to inform media and the guests too and we are not left with much time for morning’’
Tej spoke to Mr.Gogoi and Mr.Gogoi gave his consent instantly……..Tej also gave his approval to go ahead……
While OmRu were leaving…….
Tej ‘’Om are you planning to take Shivaay’s interview too?’’
Om ‘’I suppose yes …depends he will agree or not…but as we know he is an important and integral part of event I think we should’’
Rudra ‘’but why are you asking so specifically’’
Tej ‘’nothing…you guys go ahead’’
Tej POV ‘’if tomorrow OmRu takes Shivaay’s interview then everyone will come to know about Shivaay and my task would be easy too …thank you Om you are making my work very easy and I want this to happen…one shot two birds’’ he smiled
Tej left to sleep peacefully……….
