‘’Hmm ya…let’s go’’ Shivaay smiled
‘’Actually you are smiling without a reason. It’s hard to see you so. Not bad Shivaay’’ Om said
‘’Don’t embarrass me Om. ‘’
‘’Okay ..fine..i had to talk to you about something very important . Shall we while driving. Because once we reach home, I am sure our Cry Baby will say ‘’NO OFFICE WORK IN HOME’’ in his usual crying tone’’
‘’Actually the Australian clients with whom we are dealing with have sent a mail across that one of their member will be coming here and will work together. We can expect the member tomorrow. ‘’
‘’yep tomorrow. Why do you have any other plans for tomorrow. I checked your calendar and also asked Khanna about your schedules and Calendar showed no meetings except for some conferences and Khanna also confirmed the same’’
‘’tomorrow is gonna a long day Om. You will not understand’’ Shivaay murmured while driving
‘’Did you say something Shivaay’’
‘’No..at what time is he/she coming?’’
‘’ Somewhere around 13 hrs , probably for lunch and it’s SHE not He’’
Shivaay applied sudden break and looked at Om ..
‘’shivaay are you alright?’’
‘’no..i mean yes..i mean..’’
‘’Shivaay any problem?’’
‘’ No problem..actually it is perfect. Do onething Om, just reply them and ask the member to meet me at Zodiac Hotel for Lunch and I will be reaching there. I will ask Khanna to book a private table for us’’
‘’okk fine..i hope everything is okay’’
‘’everything will be okay now’’
They drove the rest of distance talking random and reached OM, Om and Shivaay left to their respective rooms to get freshened up.
‘’Anika didi…why are you so happy? What’s running in your brain? Whenever you smirk this way, someone is gonna get butchered real bad..i know this about you’’ Sahil spoke looking at Anika, but Anika was in her thoughts and didn’t listen to what Sahil said.
‘’What’s happening here? Sahil anything serious?’’ Gauri asked
‘’Nothing Gauri Didi…but definitely something serious will happen very soon.’’
Gauri looked at Sahil confused while Sahil signalled Gauri to look at Anika.
‘’I don’t think she is listening to us Sahil’’
‘’exactly and when she does that , then understand kisi ki chop hogi (someone is gonna get finished) ‘’
‘’I hope whoever is gonna get chopped be saved by God’’ Gauri spoke and folded her hands looking up spoke ‘’hey Shankar ji save the poor soul from this girl’’
‘’What are you two murmering?’’ Anika asked
‘’Not murmering but Gauri didi is praying to God to save every soul who will’’ Sahil was about to complete when Gauri gestured to stop
‘’Everyone will be saved except him. I will not spare him . what does he think of himself? Huhhh…kal uski tai tai fis nahi kiya na tho mera naam bhi Anika nahi (if I don’t chop his plan tomorrow then I am not Anika) ‘’
‘’Didi…didi…Please relax. Who and what are you talking about’’ Gauri questioned
Anika was about to tell and stopped and thought ‘’If I tell her , then she will definitely tell to Om or Shivaay. No. I can’t take this risk’’
‘’dii…where are you lost’’
‘’no where…don’t you two want to sleep. Come on go ..sleep…tomorrow will be a big day’’
‘’I mean tomorrow Gauri I am not gonna come to office..i have…I have already informed Shivaay.’’
Gauri was about to reply when her mobile ringed
‘’you calling at this time? Everything okay?’’
‘’yeah. Shall we go for lunch tomorrow somewhere outside?’’
‘’I mean only if you are okay with?’’
‘’but you generally have lunch with your siblings. What’s special now?’’
‘’nothing Shivaay is going to meet a client at Zodiac hotel and Prinku you know is out of town for her friends wedding. Anika I got to know has taken a day off. So we both remain, so thought og taking you for lunch’’
‘’okay..i have no problem. ‘’
‘’perfect..we will plan where to go may be during our coffee break tomorrow’’
Anika and Sahil were looking all the way towards Gauri while Gauri was on call
‘’Why did Om call you at this hour?’’ anika questioned frowning her eyebrows
‘’Didi..he called to ask if we can go out for lunch tomorrow?’’
‘’what? You two are also going for lunch? Kal kya lunch day hain kya, sab bahar jaa rahe hain lunch keliye (is tomorrow some lunch day that everyone is going out for lunch ) ‘’
‘’Didi…who else is going?’’
‘’Who else the great Khanji Aankhon wala bhagad billa ..who else?’’
‘’ohh so you know…just now Om said that he is going to meet some..’’ before Gauri could say further
‘’Gauri…I don’t want to listen anything about him. so don’t say..let him go for lunch or to take a punch I don’t care. Waise bhi (anyways) I have very important work tomorrow, so I am gonna sleep now and ya , Sahil tomorrow I will pick you up from school during lunch hours and we will go out for lunch , now don’t ask me any more questions and ya you both also sleep’’ saying that she marched into her room yawning.
‘’Why does dii not listen to anything completely’’ Gauri questioned to herself
‘’Don’t try to find the answer for that Gauri didi…you will never get it..you know na she is ‘’
‘’the great ANNIKA’’ they both said in union and laughed
‘’Sumo open the door…’’ Rudra kept on knocking the door for quite sometime
‘’uff who is there at this time?’’ Sumo was screaming in her half sleep and then stopped in her tracks and spoke to herself ‘’Sumo…did I hear Sumo…that means Duffer Rudra…’’ she took quick steps and opened the door
‘’Hi’’ Rudra smiled
‘’Why have you come?’’
‘’I came to meet Auntyji, do you have any problem?’’
‘’whaat? Have you lost it? My mom doesn’t know you and you want to meet her’’
‘’Ohh hello ask your mom and by the way what’s this way to welcome guests’’
‘’I welcome unwanted guests like this’’
‘’duffer don’t irritate me..just go..i don’t want to talk to you’’
‘’you also listen I came for Aunty ji not you..now move aside’’ he moved her aside and stepped in while Sumo looked on
‘’Aunty ji..i came..where are you? Aunty ji…aunty ji’’
‘’ohho stop shouting…mom is in backyard..and by the way you can’t simply enter my house like this’’
‘’I am not talking to you Sumo ‘’
‘’whaat? Excuse me it was me who said that I will not talk to you. Don’t change the statements okay’’
‘’whatever the meaning is same’’
‘’no..i mean..forget it..i said go…’’
‘’uff…who said I am duffer and you are intelligent…it should be other way round’’
‘’now you stop talking ..and let me meet aunty ji’’
Sumo looked on while Rudra marched towards Sumo’s mother, who was watering plants in the backyard
‘’namasthe Aunty ji. I am Rudra..Sumo I mean Saumya’s friend’’ rudra introduced himself
‘’namasthe beta..you have come..i was waiting for you…come come…we will go inside and sit , you must be tired driving for hours’’
‘’yes aunty ji after you’’ Rudra smiled
Sumo was stunned and shocked looking at both of them
‘’Aree Saumi…get some tea or coffee for Rudra beta’’
‘’No..no Aunty…I don’t take coffee or tea…I drink milk’’
‘’really…that’s a good habit’’
‘’saumi..go get a glass of milk for him..what are you staring at…where have your manners gone? ‘’ she spoke
‘’Maa…please…why are you asking me to give him so much of respect and what does it mean when you said ‘’you were waiting for him’’ ?’’
‘’Ohh …he informed me beforehand that he is gonna come , so I said so…and no more questions let me talk to him about you and your college…meanwhile go heat the milk and get it for him.’’ she ordered
Saumya stomped her feet in anger and marched to kitchen, while Rudra supressed his laugh.
‘’Aunty ji…you know I came here to apologise to Sumo…but then I found she left this small kit in the car , so called you and informed you. ‘’ He spoke handing over the kit to Sumo’s mom
‘’Sumo has said many times about you..i am so happy that you are by her side in the hour of need and regarding apologising, no need to do that…don’t you think fights are integral part of friendship?’’
‘’Gauri didi also said the same’’
‘’Gauri…is she your sister’’
‘’No..she is not my own sister , but she is like my sister, she works in our office’’
‘’Saumi always referred you as Rudra or duff..i mean, i don’t know your full name…she said you are very rich , but very sweet and she is doing her project in your company….so tell me about you beta’’
‘’Ohh I am Rudra Singh Obe…’’ before he could complete Sumo entered with Milk and coffee
‘’Here…take your glass of milk, drink and leave’’ sumo spoke
‘’Saumi is this the way to speak? He will be staying with us here for tonight. It is a long drive from here to Mumbai and I don’t want him to get tired ‘’
‘’no if’s and but’s saumi’’
‘’No aunty ji ..actually I will leave…the reason why I came here is almost done’’
‘’beta …will you not listen to me…stay back..it’s okay sometimes to spend time with elders too’’ she smiled
Rudra looked at Sumo, while Sumo was somewhere happy but put up an angry face.
———————-Next Day , Lunch Hours
Anika went to Sahil’s school and picked him up. They both reached Hotel Zodiac .
‘’Didi this big hotel, are you sure we are having lunch here?’’ sahil exclaimed
‘’No..we will wash utensils here , that’s why I brought you…chup chap chal andar (get in silently) ‘’ Anika replied
Sahil TAM ‘’Uff…this didi na..i tell you is the lord’s most weird invention’’
Anika was enquiring about any table being booked for Shivaay singh Oberoi. The staff denied to divulge any details, so she excused herself , made Sahil sit in the lobby and in pretext of seeing the restaurant got into the hotel…she searched and finally found Shivaay at a table.
Anika TAM ‘’Now see what I am gonna do’’
Anika called the staff and said whether the table next to Shivaay is free, they said it was reserved , but the guests will be arriving after an hour, so for then it was free, she bribed the waiter and ensured she sits next to shivaay’s table and ensured she will leave within an hour.
Shivaay was waiting for the lady (the member of Australian company whom he was dealing with) , the lady entered the hotel and the staff couldn’t take off their eyes from her…stylish, in an indo western outfit , slim and off course beautiful…. Anika missed seeing her as she walked towards Lobby to get Sahil with her.
She directly reached Shivaay’s table and
Shivaay stood up with Surprise
‘’You..you were the one who were going to meet me for lunch’’
‘’yes…why are you surprised?’’
‘’Surprise my foot…had I known that you were a part of their company I would have taken every effort to black list that company’’
‘’ohh relaaax Shivaay’’
‘’Mr.Oberoi…better call me that’’
‘’Okk..fine…Mr.Oberoi…shall we discuss about the deal now, reason why I am here’’
‘’no..i prefer to leave and I will back off from the deal too’’
‘’ohh please Mr.Oberoi…doesn’t that seem so unprofessional. Come on…you can’t back off..you signed an MoU and agreed to the conditions’’
Shivaay was about to say something when he saw Anika coming with Sahil.
‘’Look…I will talk to you later, for now you can leave’’ he said
‘’Fine Mr.Oberoi…I will leave but’’
‘’anything later..i want you to leave now..right now’’ he almost screamed
The lady got up in anger and left while Shivaay took a sigh of relief seeing her go….Anika saw her leaving and was surprised …while Shivaay walked towards Anika and ignoring her walked past by…Anika was even more surprised….she turned towards him and saw him bringing a girl and that too smiling…this made Anika more jealous…he again ignored Anika and took the girl to a seat.
Sahil ‘’didi…shall we go, I am feeling hungry’’
Anika ‘’haan..yeah..come ‘’
They went to the chair which was quite close to where Shivaay was seated. She deliberately pulled the chair so that it makes crackling noise to grab the attention of Shivaay and the girl.
‘’Anika, Sahil..you both here? What a pleasant surprise’’ shivaay said
‘’Surprise my foot..now actual shock will start’’ Anika murmured
‘’haan…did you say something?’’ shivaay asked
‘’no..i mean yes…Shivaay, I suppose you should not have sent her because I was coming…I think you must continue with your date’’ Anika spoke making Shivaay startled to core….
Shivaay TAM ‘’Ye hamesha galat jagah galat kyun bolthi hain, maine kya socha aur yaha kya ho raha hain..isske saath date, kaha fas gaya (why does she say wrong things at wrong place..what did I plan , what’s happening…date with this lady, where am I struck)’’
Lady ‘’Shivaay…I think we must continue with the date’’ she turned to Anika and said ‘’will you excuse us Anika’’
Anika ‘’yeah sure’’
Having no option Shivaay moved with the lady and sat at the same place where they sat earlier…Anika took the table next to them at some distance.
‘’you are looking gorgeous I must say’’ Shivaay said
The lady was about to reply when Anika loudly said ‘’Gorgeous my foot, my chameli looks far better ’’
The lady, Sahil and Shivaay were looking confused at Anika
Lady ‘’come on Shivaay…tell me , what you wanted to share, what happened and when did it start’’
Anika ‘’ohho Sahil… what a stupid question…you came for free lunch so eat the lunch when it will be served and then you can leave’’
The confusing looks continued
Lady ‘’don’t concentrate there…you speak’’
Shivaay was about to say something when Anika loudly said
Anika ‘’shut up, if you say even a word, I will beat you with my chamki’’
The lady and Shivaay looked at Anika and Anika looked at Sahil and spoke ‘’I am saying you..got it’’
Lady again turned towards shivaay and spoke
‘’Don’t you think as if she is replying to our conversations’’
Anika ‘’why…why are you talking about me. Is it necessary to bring my topic. I am like this. do you have any problem’’
The lady looked at her and Anika tuned towards Sahil and said ‘’what is the need to talk about me with your friends Sahil, I am like this, do you have any problem?’’
The Lady spoke ‘’what’s actually happening? I mean’’
Shivaay looked at her
Anika ‘’Ahaaa haa…see how greedily you are looking as if Taj Mahal is before you’’
Shivaay gave a glare
‘’I think she is acting as if she is talking to that little boy , but I am sure she is ‘’
Anika turned towards Sahil and said ‘’look who is talking about acting ….Jyada natak mat kar aur overacting to bilkul nahi’’ (Don’t do drama and overacting not at all)
Anika looked at him and then quickly turned her face giving weird expressions covering her face with the menu card while Sahil was scratching his hair.
‘’it’s better I order the lunch , now’’ Shivaay picked up the menu for which she nodded.
‘’Kitne bhukkad ho tum..bas muft ka khana mila bhaag ke aa jaate hain… (How hungry animal you are…if food is for free then they come running) ‘’
The lady was getting pissed off and Shivaay was trying to control the situation. He wanted to make Anika jealous but he somewhere got idea that Anika didn’t come to listen to their conversation but to stop the conversation. He being in his thoughts was looking at the menu
Anika turned towards Sahil and said ‘’I was saying you…now order, don’t stare’’ she forcefully thumped the menu card in Sahil’s hand
Coming out of his thoughts, he passed on the menu to the lady sitting before him and gestured her to order
‘’Tujhe kuch pata bhi hain ki kya khana hain…mein order karti hoon.. (Do you even know what to eat. Let me order’’ she snatched the menu card from Sahil
Pissed off sahil said ‘’Anika didi..why did you exactly get me here. I was better at school’’
With his statements shivaay smiled which didn’t go unnoticed by Anika and she was quick enough
‘’jyada haso mat ‘’(Don’t laugh much) , then she turned towards Sahil and murmered ‘’tu thodi der sab dekhtha jaa (for sometime just see whatever is happening’’ to which Sahil hit his forehead
‘’Shivaay, I would like to have ‘’ before she could say anything, Anika called the waiter loudly ‘’Oyee.Waiter bhayya…please come here….will you take my order’’
‘’jii maidam’’ the waiter spoke
‘’Two plate Vada, one plate Masala dosa, one plate noodles, one tomato mozzarella pizza, and ‘’
‘’maidam jii…itna sab aap dono keliye’’ (Madam all these for you?’’) he spoke astonished
‘’Haan…for me..do you have any problem?’’
‘’no…I will get it..anything else?’’
‘’yes..Aloo Poori please’’ Sahil added
Everyone who were seated in the restaurant were laughing silently except Shivaay , Anika and the lady……
