Again late!!! I had an eye flu…it is still blur on my effected eye………such a dirty disease……seriously…… actually it is kind of viral nd unhealthy season…lol….take care u all…….gv me ur reviews……!!
Everybody leave from farmhouse after having some snacks and some chit chat…….
Radhika and neil straight went to radhika’s home to meet her parents…she really miss them a lot….dilip and mala welcome their children with full heart. After some time, Dilip and neil become busy with the cricket match on tv and mala drag radhika with her to the kitchen……
Mala “chotti…how are you?”
Radhika “m all fine maa…”
Mala “o yess…I should ask this question to neil only…he is the one who tolerates you”
Radhika with wide eyes.. “maa…….dnt underestimate him….he is equally annoying”
Mala “I knw both of you from your birth ……”
Radhika made a pout face “that’s not fair mom……”
At that moment neil entered in the kitchen to have some pop corn and listened their talk …. “finally…..i have got someone to support…maa….let me tell u one thing today…she is soo annoying..if I sense about tht before marriage I was sure to give a second thought about that.”
Radhika place both her hands on hips and turn towards neil with the same pouted face.. “now u also?”
Neil “o…why??? When mom support you instead of me, that time u also ask me to chill na…its my turn now”
Radhika forcefully hit her high heels on neil’s shoes and he jumped with the sudden unexpected pain while walking out to the livng room…..
Mala shouted “chotti….what is this?”
Radhika “huhhh…ask ur child neil na…he is much understanding thn me”
Mala worriedly asked neil “beta…she is stupid…m so sorry for her behavior”
Neil “arrey ma…she is my wife now…u just dnt worry…I knw how to handle her….relax”
Mala feel bad for neil…..they have dinner in pin drop silence..only the sound of plates and spoons filld the room in between”
Radhika’s face is red till now…she is angry on her mother and husband BOTH…..how can they think like this about her……
Neil and radhika left for their house after having dinner and taking blessings from parents…
After coming home neil tried to say something but radhika totally ignoring her… her heart is paining….she hardly control over her tears till now……she shut the door tight on his face and reached for the bed and cry her heart out…that means he is not happy with this marriage…and here I am…stupid…foolish dream tht he loves me as a man loves a woman (ok…I agree tht I copy this line…but I love this)….she cover her mouth with the back of her palm sio that neil doesn’t listen her sobs……
Neil knock the door for about 10 minutes and finally radhika opened the door
Neil “what the hell was that?”
Radhika “sorry I was a bit emotional after meeting mom and dad…..”
Neil understands tht she is lying but doesn’t want to ask anything ryt now as she is in no mood to talk or anything……
In the morning….
Neil wake up with the sound of his alarm clock…he turn it off without opening his eyes and again cover himself in the soft blanket when he realized last night incident…he open his eyes quickly just to see radhika there on her side but he find the bed empty….she is not here…..where does she go this early….moreover she is not a morning person..so it is like a strange thing for neil…
He comes out of his room…rubbing his eyes and yawning…. “kiddo….” No response…again “radhika??”
Prerna “god morning neil….”
Neil smile a little and move towards her mom…”where is radhika mom?”
Prerna “ohh….she said she got a call for urgent meeting from her office…so she left early”
Neil’s body stiffed with this news….he knew very well tht she doesn’t have any meeting….there must be some other thing disturbing her” he lost in his own thought but not realized for a single time tht he said something yesterday which hurts her so badly….
Prerna notice tension lines in his forehead “everything ok na neil?”
Neil “o..ya mom….u dnt worry…please cook something yummy for breakfast..i will be back after getting ready”
Prerna “ok…I will also pack something for radhika as she also left without having anything “
Neil think for a moment and said “mom….pack our breakfast..i will also have mine with her in office…”
Prerna “ohhhoooo…..” in a teasing way …… neil gv her a sly smile and left for his room….
There must be something wrong…whe is she behaving like this….i knew radhika very much…there must be something bothering her very badly…….it is for the first time tht I doesn’t listen her voice after waking up…even before wedding…she use to call him early morning to decide about the day….and here…now…neil is all busy in thinking about one and only radhika when he finally entered elevator and liftman pressed the button to 15th floor….radhika’s office……..
Neil reached outside her cabin and about to knock when his phone ring…”arjun” name flashes on the screen, neil slide his thumb towards green icon and place the phone on his ear…. “yes arjun”
Arjun “good morning sir….”
Neil “ahhh…..its too odd tht u call me sir seriously……”
Arjun laugh a little “sir..actually the software company with which we want to joint venture…their CEO want to meet you…..”
Neil is little bit shocked as he is not expecting such a quick response from their side “o wow…..thts great news….i will be there in 5 minutes and then we will discuss in detail “
Arjun “ok sir”
Neil outside the cabin of radhika finally open the door and see her sleeping on the four seated large leather sofa……she cuddle herself with the soft cushions placed there…..mouth little open….and moreover she is snoring……OMG…now neil barely control on himself and laugh placing his palm on his mouth….he take out his phone and open the camera option to capture her video…but when he come near he noticed dry tears on her face…eyes are puffed…..it is looking like she is hell tired…what the hell..doesn’t she sleep last night???? He speak to himself….shut his phone and come out of her cabin letting her sleep for a while….”I will come after an hour..till then maybe she get up…I have so many questions to ask her now” he murmured to himself
As he entered his cabin, he find arjun already their ready with his laptop and some files opened…arjun is really very hard working and homest with his work…..
Arjun “o..sorry sir..i didn’t noticed u”
Neil “arjun…I knew u work so hard but sometimes relax ur mind”
Arjun “actually sir..it is an important deal for us”
Neil “ I knew but still…..and moreover m goind to tell you something important…”
Arjun waited with curiousity to knw what will his boss want him to do next…”if we crack this deal..i want you to handle all this project…yourself”
Arjun shockingly “but sir…how can i..i have no experience”
Neil “plzz….u r the one who handled this all project till now…it was ur idea….and m so happy for you really”
Arjun “but I have very less experience sir”
Neil frustrated now “first of all stop calling me neil…u make me 75 year old man by using this “sir…sir…sir” it’s only neil from now”
Arjun dnt believe “but how can i?”
Neil “coz I an asking u”
Neil “arjun…will u plz stop this now…lets discuss about the project….”
After going through the documents several times and making sure they are on right path…a Skype call is connected with the CEO Mr. Harry Charles of, California based company Giga Software Solutions… neil asked arjun to handle the meeting on his behalf…arjun denied but neil assure him tht he will be here with him and no need to be worried….
As meeting over neil is highly impressed with arjun…he is so much sharp….deal is almost done…just neil have to go there to meet and sign the documents to start their journey of JV officially….he also asked arjun to accompany him and they have to leave in the evening flight…
With all this meeting and wrapping up with other work as he have to stay there for almost 10 days, neil is hell tired and totally forget about radhika…..!!
Neil “arjun…its almost done here…just take all important documents carefully….and after that u may leave….to pack your stuff….”
Arjun “ok sir…I mean neil”
After pressing the button to the ground floor in elevator he remembered radhika’s face in the morning and he frustratedly bang his hand on the door of the lift……”how could he forget her”
He ask the lift man to stop the lift on her floor and come out quickly as soon as it stopped!!
Neil entered her cabin but doesn’t find her there so he asked her PA who told her that radhika left the office half an hour ago with sam….he left from there but keep calling on her mobile…he have a flight in next two hours and here radhika is not picking his call….he tried sam’s number also but same problem..she is also not responding to him….
He reached his home, pack his bag and continuously trying to reach radhika…..he finally called mala whether she know anything
Mala “arrey beta..how can she so irresponsible….actually sam told me tht they planned for a movie..so maybe they are in the theater keeping their phone on silent mode!”
Neil “ok…mom….thank you so much…I was so worried about her”
Neil wants to meet her before leaving for airport but she is not picking his phone and it’s time for him to reach airport….so with half heart he board his flight with arjun!!
Radhika reached home at 8:30, she informed prerna after coming out of the hall when he notice 45 missed calls and all from neil…she is worried..but when prerna tell her that neil left for California for 10 days and he want to meet her before leaving..it hurt radhika….why didn’t she checked her phone for a single moment..she was so busy in discussing her life issues with sam tht she lost the chance to meet him…now how can she live with this burden…
She sits with prerna for a while and then entered her room for the night…..neil’s flight will definitely take 12-14 hours so there is no chance tht she will be able to speak with him before morning……she comes to the balcony of her room and think about her talk with sam
Radhika called sam and asked her to meet in a coffee shop… sam agreed but she is nearby to radhika’s office so she cm here directly and thenm both of them left for the coffee…mean while sam is little disturbed too, radhika understand with her lost mind and decided not to push her own tension on sam .
While having coffe sam asked her the reason
Sam “radhika…what is the problem?”
Radhika “nothing sam..just getting bored in office”
Sam “ufff…stop this..i knw u r not the one who got bored with her own work….spit out quickly what is the problem”
Radhika made a pout face and her eyes turn to be wet again….she started crying like a three year old kid….sam is super shocked…”hey…radhika its okk…tell me what happened..dnt cry baby…” while cupping her face and wiping her tears with palm…..
Radhika told her everything that happened at her house on which sam banged her head “r u out of ur mind….he was just kidding….”
Radhika “no…he was so serious….he doesn’t like me…nd me stupid….foolish started feeling something more then a friend for him”
Sam laugh at this “finally…u realized that you have some soecial feelings for him”
Radhika stare her with a confused lookj “what do u mean?”
Sam “ahh…everybody except you realized it long time ago…tht u love him”
Radhika “ok…dnt joke around ….i dnt love him”
Sam “really…..thn y r u crying???”
Radhika gv her a deadly stare and hit on her bicep….
Sam “aww…this is for what….?”
Radhika show her tongue in response… “ok…now u tell me..where were u lost?”
Sam raised an eyebrow towards her “m here with you…(and before radhika speak anything sam ) nd I have two movie tickets…lets go without any of your drama”
Radhika “sam…m ur elder sister…show some respect”
Sam “then what….i dnt believe in numbers…”
Both reached to PVR cinemas and turn their cell phones on silent mode……
Radhika was nt able to control “sam….tell me who is the lucky one you love?”
Sam “not now….but I will tell u soon”
Radhika “y so much suspense?”
Sam “coz it is one sided love radhika…m not confirmed whether he also love me or not”
Radhika “hey…m sure he also loves u….u r so sweet sam…no one can resist from loving u…..”
Both burst out in a loud laugh to got some curses from other audiences….
