The next week, everyone were busy preparing for so many of the ceremonies. The whole house was buzzing with activity and joy. Sharad and Bhavna were in charge of the decorations, and Yuvraaj and Suhani were constantly bustling around, either checking up on Krishna and Yuvaan, or making sure all arrangements for the functions were perfect. Sayyam contributed wherever he could, whether it was hanging up something that was too high for everybody else, or carrying trays of flowers.
Yuvani, needless to say, was in charge of Krishna’s makeup and dresses, and was the only family member, other than Sayyam, who was unoccupied most of the time, except for scolding Krishna when she messed up her makeup. Sayyam and Yuvani were almost always together, Sayyam constantly making sarcasm-laced jokes, and she, occasionally trying to explain what the difference was between different makeup products, or new fashion trends, while he shook his head in playful frustration.
Once in a while though, Sayyam would catch her glaring at him, like she knew something he didn’t. There were a lot of unanswered questions in his mind, but Sayyam always shook off the feeling; he’d tried to apologize once or twice, finding her alone wherever he could, but she’d always look away. It was obvious she wanted nothing to do with him, and Sayyam decided that it was for the best. After all, avoiding her would get rid of the feelings.
Krishna hated him; she hated him for making her feel things she wasn’t supposed to feel; she hated him for being so complicated and emotionless; she hated how rude he could be. But most of all, she hated him for what he had said that day. She didn’t feel guilty now either for everything she’d said to him that night- she wasn’t allowed to feel guilty. He deserved it. She’d found him looking at her expectantly a couple times, it was as if he had something to say. But it didn’t matter, she was always the first one to forgive. And it always end up hurting her the most.
She didn’t dwell on those thoughts though; she was getting married next week, to Yuvaan. She smiled, thinking about the time they had spent together the previous evening on the terrace. Suhani and Yuvraaj had wanted them both to spend some more time together before they were married. Yuvaan had gifted her a silver necklace, with an emerald pendant.
She looked at the necklace now, holding the pendant between her fingers. This felt typical, she smiled happily to herself. Today was the mehndi, and tomorrow would be the engagement. This was nice, the normality of it all. She remembered the moments spent with Sayyam. Every second with him was like a roller coaster of emotions, too fast and too unpredictable…but there was one question stuck in her mind that bothered her. ‘Did she prefer it that way?’
Yuvaan appeared suddenly, disrupting Krishna’s train of thought, “Krishna! I came to ask you something,”
“Yeah?” Krishna replied, smiling slightly.
“Can I have the necklace back?” he furrowed his eyes, looking like he was in a hurry.
“But Yuvaan…” Krishna frowned.
“Just give it to me, okay?” Yuvaan gripped her arm tightly, his gaze darting everywhere.
“Y- yes, of- of course, sorry Yuv- Yuvaan.” She averted her gaze, staring at the floor in front of her. Yuvaan held her chin, tilting her head back so their eyes met.
“I just need it for a while, all right?”
“Okay Yuvaan,” she said submissively.
“Okay, Krishna…anyway…I have to go somewhere, I’ll see you later.”
“Oh, no mister”, Yuvani walked up to them laughing, “boys can’t come during the mehndi function…you’ll just have to meet your fiancé tomorrow.”
Yuvaan raised an eyebrow, looking uninterested, while Krishna looked away, not knowing how to respond.
“Okay, okay Yuvani,” he smirked, as if he hadn’t just been scolding Krishna, and walked away hurriedly.
“Come Krishna” Yuvani held Krishna’s arm, and Krishna took a sharp intake of breath, as she flinched away, rubbing the sore skin tenderly.
“What happened?” Yuvani questioned worriedly.
“I… uh…I- I fell!” Krishna managed to say, and Yuvani raised an eyebrow, clearly not believing her.
“Forget it, I’m ok,” she smiled, tugging at Yuvani, “Come, they all must be waiting.”
Those in favor of Yuvaan, please raise your hands…Yeah, that’s what I thought 😉
I know, this was a pretty short and stupid chapter…there’ll be more drama in the next chapter, I promise! Also, about Kriyam scenes, they are on their way. Like I said, there’s gonna be a lot going on between them, but I will be including some fun plot arcs once the fights cool down. Don’t expect me to cool down Kriyam though! They’re gonna be on fire 😉
The next chapter will be coming out on Monday, thanks for reading!
Until next time,
