"What if they arrive suddenly and ..."
Arnav quickly leaned over from the driver's seat and commanded her stare, "Trust me, I am not going to allow anyone to mess this up...They will see you when you are ready..."
Khushi smiled and blinked slowly...
Her small inflection drew him in to kiss her, his lips brushing hers smoothly...
When he pulled back to look in her eyes, he cleared his throat, "We better leave, or I'm going to take you back to my apartment and dishevel you...
The blush that covered her cheeks made him pause and seriously consider it, but Khushi quickly fastened her seat belt and forced her gaze straight ahead...
"Let us go and see our daughter...my beautiful wife...who is blushing as red as a strawberry..."
Her hands flew to her cheeks as he chuckled and pulled out of the carpark...
In no time at all, they had arrived back at Khushi's home...
She unfastened the buckle with her shaky hands and hurried to exit...
Arnav felt worried and caught up with her just as she reached for the door handle...
"Whoa there," he tried to calm her, his hands smoothing up and down her arms, "What's the rush...you know, if this is too fast for you, and you want to back out, Khushi, I get it, I understand..."
"No...No...that's...No I WANT you to be with me...I feel safer, and calmer with you..."
Leaning his forehead against hers, he whispered, "Then tell me what is bothering you..."
"I am worried that, that they could be close by, waiting to pounce on me or something..."
Arnav grinned, "Well, since you feel safe with me, I can assure you, that if that were to happen, I would be the most covert, and attentive bodyguard in the history of the world..."
And he leaned in...
Khushi expected a kiss, but instead heard the front door open...
"Libbi!!!!! You're mum and dad are home!"
With a heart bubbling over with happiness, she watched in joy as Libbi bolted towards them...
"Mummy!!!!!!" she squeeled, running into Khushi...
And as their energetic hug ended, she turned to Arnav...
He was looking at her with an overwhelming surge of fatherly love...
Libbi looked up and then looked back down, and when she looked back up, a scowl covered her face...
Arnav crossed his arms, "And what is THAT look for young lady?"
"You are very tall. HOW can I reach you!?"
Khushi covered her mouth to stifle her laughter...
Arnav squatted down before her, "I will always reach YOU...and if I need to..." he hauled her into his embrace, and lifted her into his arms..."I can always pick you up...you're not as heavy as your mummy..."
Libbi giggled as Khushi playfully smacked his arm...
"Maybe she should lay off the jalebi?"
Libbi laughed out loud, and Khushi could care less that they were making playful fun of her...
Her family was coming together once more, and for that, she laughed with happiness...
"So you're telling me, that Libbi normally sleeps in your bed with you?"
Khushi's apologetic eyes reached his…"Y...yes...I...well...since she was a baby...and we haven't really been able to afford…"
Arnav pressed his fingers to her lips to quiet her, "Shhhh! Are you seriously trying to give an excuse for something that I find BRILLIANT!?"
Her eyes lit up…"You don't mind?"
Libbi slowly walked into the room wearing pink pony pajamas…
Arnav instantly lifted her into his arms and spun her around, "Look at the cutest thing in the world!?"
Libbi was smiling, "Really? Even thought I’m almost 10?"
Arnav cringed, "You think AGE stops someone from being cute? You…" he threw her down on the bed, playfully tickling her…"you my gorgeous girl, will ALWAYS be the cutest thing in the whole wide world…"
Khushi quickly stopped her laughter and put on her authoritative voice…"Ok, Ok, enough now...don't rile her up, she won't get to sleep…she's never been a good sleeper…"
"Oh really?" Arnav said with a smirk in his tone, "Well, come on girls…"
He dragged back the blankets and rolled to the middle of the bed, tapping the empty spaces beside him…
"Are you sure you want to be in the middle of a lot of kicking?"
Arnav rolled his eyes…"Will you both listen to me!"
Libbi didn't wait a second before crawling over to the space beside the window and snuggling close…
"Is this okay?"
Arnav scooped his arm beneath her neck and pulled her close, "It's ALMOST perfect…"
And his eyes drifted to Khushi as he extended his other arm…
She bit back a flood of tears as she meekly lay down beside her husband…
As she covered them up, she tried to chatter to relieve her nerves…"You, you know, we didn't have to go to bed so early...this is Libby's bedtime, not yours…"
"But he said he would mummy…"
Khushi smiled as Libbi quickly threw her upper body over a grunting Arnav to kiss her mummy goodnight…
"You couldn't have warned me Libbi…"
She laughed as she cuddled back closer…
"Ok girls, time to sleep...I want nothing more right now than to rest with my family...so...Goodnight, and I love you both so damn much…"
"I love you daddy…"
Arnav kissed the top of her head and turned to Khushi…
"Hey…" he whispered
She turned to look at him, with tears in her eyes…"I love you Arnavji…"
"No crying...I'm here…" and he leaned in, kissing her forehead gently…
And as he pulled them close, he sighed out a long breath…
Never before had his heart felt so completely at peace, so alive, and so content.
Khushi woke up and looked over at Libbi, loving the look of serenity on her daughters face…
"I thought you said she didn't sleep well…"
Her eyes darted up to the deep voice that spoke…"Hi…"
Blushing, she continued, "Well, she usually doesn't sleep well, but…" she peered over again…"But she's practically drooling while cuddling you…"
Arnav flexed his arm and brought Khushi dangerously close, "What can I say, I help my girls...relax…"
As he said 'relax', he wiggled his eyebrows and Khushi instantly felt desire flood her body…
"So what shall we do today?"
Her sex drive interrupted, she frowned, "Aren't we supposed to work?"
"Pfft, Work?! When I have the most gorgeous little girl and a wife who commands my body's every attention?...work?!"
Khushi laughed softly and Libbi began to stir…
She kicked for a few seconds before Arnav's grunt woke her up…
Her eyes opened and she saw who was with her…
"Goodmorning little angel…"
Khushi could see her daughter slightly wary and motioned her to come and have a hug…
Libbi shyly crawled into her mother's arms and Arnav smiled, knowing the situation would still take awhile to get used to…
"Is he really here?"
Khushi blinked slowly at Arnav and hugged Libbi closer, "Yes, he really and truly is…"
And as Libbi's eyes darted back to Arnav, her shy smile soon disappeared as she pounced on him in delight…
"He's having coffee in your room, so we shall give you two some privacy and go do some shopping...we will be back in a few hours…"
Khushi was about to argue, even though her every desire was on fire to be alone with her husband…
"I think that is a great idea...because mummy is trying to convince daddy to work, and that…" she stared at her mummy, "is damn silly."
Smiling at her daughters stance with her hands on her hips, she nodded…"Okay...but…"
Veena pushed Khushi's forcibly into the hallway, "We are going out, and Raj said he wanted to take us to lunch, so he will meet us there...Now go and spend time with your husband...go!"
She gave Libbi a tight hug and kiss, and mouthed the words 'thankyou' to Veena…
And the door shut.
Alone with her husband.
And man oh man…
I want him...now.
Her hips rocked like a boat on gentle waves as she sauntered into their room.
She slid off her slippers and slowly pulled the straps of her nightie down over her shoulders...
In complete awe of her, he unconciously dropped his empty cup and plate onto the carpet...
Khushi smirked as he lowered to one knee and picked them up...
Anything to avert his hungry stare from the luscious buffet of her body and hide the hard-on pressing against his shorts.
Two bare feet connected to perfectly shaped calves appeared in his peripheral view.
Knowing all too well a triangle of delicious goodness hovered only inches from his face if he lifted his head, Arnav trained his gaze to the floor.
“Seriously, Khushi. Don’t you have a robe or something? Veena or Raj could walk by...”
Ah...so he's still unaware that we are alone… this will be fun…
“I thought you were tough and not afraid of anything...” She squatted, placing her mouth next to his ear. “Are you sure you’re really Arnav Singh Raizada...?”
Arnav’s back muscles tightened and his pulse quickened.
Both clear signs his involuntary defense mechanism had kicked into gear.
The unstoppable urge to lie her flat on her back and taste every inch of her was becoming frighteningly strong...
“I don’t know what you think you’re doing, but you need to stop...for now...I don't want Veena or Raj to think that I'm some sort of crazy sex maniac...and you are slowly making me one...” His lowered voice sounded exactly as he’d intended, intimidating and full of deadly warning.
“I think you do know what I’m doing and I won’t stop.”
Moving faster, he picked up the cup and cracked plate and turned to quickly place them on the side table...
Oh God, if she hits on my any harder, she'll knock me unconscious...
"Khushi...I want you too much already, please...I will break...and I'll make you fucking SCREAM no matter WHO is in this house..."
Walking closer, she let her bare chest press against his bare back, "...But we’re all alone....” She breathed in to his ear.
He instantly looked up…
Spinning around, his intense eyes found hers..."What..?."
His word was almost a growl...
"And one more thing...I love you...And I trust you. I’d put my life in your hands if I had to. I know you will never let me or Libbi down...It's just you and me here right now...how much more do I have to try to get you to make a move?”
With startling force, he claimed her mouth...
The kiss was deep, his embrace tight...
He opened his mouth and greedily swept his tongue over hers.
Darting and striking, its tip moved within her as though attempting to conquer her from the inside out.
Helpless to do anything but completely submit to her desire for him, she kissed him back, meeting every flick of his tongue with one of her own.
He plundered her mouth, exploring its depths until she was nearly overcome with ecstasy induced delirium
The heat of the kiss, like a wildfire out of control, burned through her all the way to her soul.
Arnav's passion was so profoundly intense that her core spurred a rush of cream, wetting the insides of her already slick thighs.
His hands slid down her back, tracing the curve of her waist as he went. When they finally rested on her hips, he rubbed his palms over the contour of her bottom then squeezed.
As his lips plundered her neck he grunted, “I’ve seen some amazing looking women. But none has ever topped your beauty. Not a single damned one...You...you're...My God, you're the most...you're perfect...”
Though the summer sun had warmed the entire house to an almost uncomfortable temperature, Khushi shivered as Arnav stood back and examined every inch of her body.
From her head down to her French-tipped toes, his hungry gaze took her in.
Too afraid to speak, she stood still and waited for Arnav's next move.
She didn’t have to wait long.
With one motion, he easily lifted her and charged out of their room into the kitchen, placing her bare bottom on the island counter.
Her shrieking gasp didn't go unnoticed as he planted his hands firmly behind her, her legs dangling over the edge of the cold granite top...
Khushi leaned back, allowing him free rein to do as he pleased.
Instead of coming to her, Arnav suddenly turned and opened the door to the freezer.
“Just give me a second,” he said over his shoulder…."I just have to find...There you are.”
A triumphant grin turned up his lips when he pulled out a box of Icecreams.
“I knew they would be in here somewhere.” He set the colorful package on the counter and sifted through its contents until he withdrew a red frozen treat.
While he unwrapped the Popsicle from its wrapper, he glanced at Khushi. “No mango, but Strawberry is my next favorite.”
Disbelief at his sudden disinterest had her head spinning.
Was a kiss really all he was willing to give her? What had happened to all the urgency? All the fire?
“Seriously? You’re going to eat that thing while I’m sitting here naked? You're a supreme IDIOT!”
Something wicked flashed across his face as he waggled the icecream in her direction.
“...prepare yourself. I've had YEARS to think about you...about what I would do to you... Now you’re going to find out exactly what I’ve been thinking about, and things are going to get wild..."
There was little doubt as to what Arnav planned on doing with the strawberry icecream...
That he would even think of something so wanton, so unrestrained was beyond thrilling.
Maybe she hadn’t given him enough credit in the imagination department.
Here she sat naked as the day she was born and he was still in a tshirt and boxers...
Unfair to say the least.
Khushi spoke up, “Hold on Mister, Before you show me the latest in frozen juice weaponry, I think we need to even out the playing field a little bit.”
He tilted the Popsicle forward, making it appear oddly limp in his big hand.
One brow raised comically.... “And how do you suggest we do that?”
The way he phrased the question had her brain moving a hundred miles an hour.
“Put that icecream down, and take off your clothes...”
He straightened his posture... “Well, aren't you a bit pushy...”
A giddy flush heated Khushi from the inside out..."Well...I..."
But she soon went quiet as he peeled off his shirt...
He swung the cotton over his head, letting it fly into the living room.
Khushi's eyes were now on his body...
His chest, his abs...
Completely smooth, save the light dusting of dark hairs leading from his navel to what lay hidden beneath his boxer shorts, his bronzed chest was a marvel to behold.
Khushi swayed slightly.
He shook his head and smiled, creating the most adorable crinkles near the corners of his eyes. “That look in your eyes...I want to see that...everyday...for the rest of my life...”
Trying to brush off her drooling expression, she shook her head and pointed to his shorts. “You’ve still got on more clothes than I do..."
Waggling his eyebrows, Arnav slid them down over his muscles thighs...
When they reached the floor, a quiet gasp escaped her mouth.
Between his spread legs dangled his two perfectly round balls and a thick long phallus, the head of which looked as big as a plum and just as nicely colored.
Heat rose to from her neck to her cheeks.
She scrambled for something to say, she couldn't breathe, let alone think clearly.
Excitement coiled deep inside her belly...
Before her stood a warrior...
Heart pounding, Khushi clutched the edges of the counter to keep herself from falling to the floor.
"Is this all real?"
Her words made his penis harden even more and he stepped closer...
Her inner muscles squeezed in anticipation.
She could feel the mounting pressure between her legs and her nipples tighten.
Her entire body thrummed with building desire.
"This is damn real...always will be...do you need something to prove that you're awake...?"
Arnav picked up the melting frozen treat and strode toward her.
Ferocious desire now burned behind his sparkling eyes.
His composure morphed into one of a serious hunter.
He swiftly swooped in on her, lifting the dripping treat to her mouth, brushing the cold tip over her bottom lip.
Khushi licked at the coating of strawberry juice
“You like?” he asked.
Unable to find her tongue, she nodded her reply.
Once again, he glided the frozen icecream over her lips.
This time he leaned in and fused his mouth to hers.
He parted her lips and tasted her fully, feasting on her tongue, her teeth, and the delicate roof of her mouth.
When he’d had enough, he broke the kiss, but not before taking the opportunity to gently nip her bottom lip.
“I love you... Strawberry is a good flavor on you.” He dabbed the treat on both her cheeks then followed up with a lapping kiss. “Tastes good there, too. I wonder what it’s like on your neck.”
Before she had a moment to prepare herself, he rubbed the melting ice on a patch of flesh just between her ear and jaw, then along the side of her neck.
She sucked in a startled breath.
Her back stiffened and goose bumps flared over her skin as cold shock mingled with unrestrained excitement.
Heat replaced cool when his hot tongue traced the wet trail.
He continued further down from her shoulders to her chest...
"Stay still now..."
She watched feeling the heat in her core turn volcanic...
Wrapping his arm around her waist to hold her still, he started to drag the icecold strawberry in around her breasts...
But his eyes remained sternly on hers as he continued to make rings around her swollen breasts....
Each circle became smaller as the ice traveled to her areola, stopping only for a moment before swiping it across her nipple...
Her choked gasp sent his senses reeling...
Her back arched involuntarily when he pressed the cold to her nipple, refusing to remove the ice, letting it awaken her nerves...
Suddenly the icecream was gone...and his mouth latched into her tender peak.
Khushi grip on the counter tightened as he slowly increased the suction.
Exquisite pain radiated from her chest to the apex of her sex, prodding more warm cream to flow to her feminine folds.
When he grazed her nipple with his teeth, she cried out and let her head fall back, completely giving herself over to wonderful sensation.
After thoroughly licking and sucking the one breast, he repeated the slow torture on the second.
The strawberry icecream was melting faster now having been out of the freezer for so long.
Tiny rivulets of red juice streamed down the valley of her abdomen and continued on to the juncture between her legs.
No doubt she’d be sticky as a Jalebi by the time he finished torturing her.
Or would he be so thorough with his licking that he would find every last drop?
I certainly hope so.
“You taste so...rrrrrrrr....” he growled more loudly onto her nipple as he released the suction..."and to think that...only a few days ago..." he squeezed his eyes shut...
She could see his pain, but before she could adhere to it, he flattened his tongue on the skin between her breasts and licked his way further down...
He’d taken such time and care with his foreplay that her sex pulsed with aching need.
When he reached her mound, she was wet and ready for his undivided attention.
Each beat of her thundering heart sent forward a throb of want, creaming her core in keen expectancy.
Shifting his hold of the frozen ice, Arnav moved it closer to her privates...
"Oh...Arnavji...no...no it...OH MY GOD!"
He swirled the tip over and under the hood of her clit.
The muscles in her legs tensed and her fingernails bit into the underside of the counter as a mighty tremor surged deep within.
Before she could catch her breath, he pressed the icecream hard onto her clit..
At once the frosty treat chilled her nub...
No longer able to catch her breath, Khushi panted, screeched, and keened...
She tried to let go of the bench and bring her hands to spur him on, but she wasn't strong enough to make a single move...
Seeing her practically out of control, he lifted the ice and pressed his open mouth onto her sex...
Lazy twists of his lithe tongue soothed the inflicted pebble while inciting movement from her hips to better feel every minute stroke.
As he increased the suction on her clitoris...
Her body was shuddering, shaking in earnest...
The ecstasy he purged from her body was mind numbing...
When she thought she couldn’t last a moment longer, his mouth subtly moved to a lower target.
After spreading the sensitive folds of her pussy with his fingers, he swiped the ice up and down her length, delivering a chilly thrill that curled her toes.
Then he placed his mouth on her and licked all around before plunging it far into her channel as the ice now rested back on her clit...
“Ahhhhhhh!” Khushi called on a ragged breath.
He looked up, his eyes shining with true love...
He placed the remains of the strawberry Popsicle in his mouth and slowly withdrew it.
Her face was flustered red, "please..."
His lips twisted into a smile as he moved the icecream back down...
With unimaginable gentleness, he inserted the long melting icecream into her core.
Her mouth opened wider for each centimeter it sank in...
The walls of her vagina tightened around the cold treat, making her squirm, unable to breathe...
“And now ...” Arnav bent over her clit and latched on, sucking and tugging, while slowly pushing and pulling the melting ice in and out of her.
The combined effect had bright sparks of light dancing in front of her face as though the kitchen had magically morphed into a sparkly kingdom of pleasure.
Khushi's grip failed and she fell back against the flat surface of the countertop..."m...m...more...more...please..."
Her plea was almost silent, but he heard her...
And more was what she got.
For several blissful minutes, she enjoyed his skillful manipulation of her body.
He clearly was in no hurry.
Time was not an issue.
Only her pleasure, which he lavished on her like a queen.
Far too soon, however, the rising need to come overpowered her ability to hold her release at bay.
"Don't come yet..."
Her anger flared, and her voice was rasped as she screamed ..."NO!!!!!!!!!"
He pushed the icecream in as far as he could and flexed the muscles in his arm that was still lodged beneath her lower back...
With her back arched, it was impossible NOT to climax...
He KNEW she couldn't stop herself...but he also knew, she was trying...
Arnav started to force out her orgasm...
And yet she still tried...
"I...I can't...Arnavji...Oh...OH...OH I CAN'T...IT'S COMING!"
And it happened...
Her orgasm crested, taking her over the edge of restraint and into mindless sensation.
Every nerve ending tingled and every muscle contracted while wave after wave of electrified pulses flowed from her rapture.
Her body slowly leaked out her juices mixed with icecream...
Withdrawing the remaining sliver of ice from her core, he hauled her shaking body off the counter as though she weighed nothing...
"SHhhhhhhhhhhhh.....Khushi shhh....You did exactly what I wanted...and guess what...No matter how hard you try to stop it, I now know that I will ALWAYS be able to make you climax..."
Her forehead scrunched up..."Wh...what! You mean...you..."
“QUIET...Now wrap your legs around my waist.”
He grabbed hold of her hips to keep her anchored securely.
Then, using immeasurable care, he eased Khushi's trembling sex onto his hard phallus, impaling her soaked channel.
He could still feel her throbbing...
Her breath caught as he continued to sink deeper, filling her completely.
“Yes. So tight. You feel so good,” he murmured into her ear.
Slowly at first, then faster, he thrust into her, robbing her breath with each powerful push.
His skin grew slippery as a light sheen of perspiration glossed his back.
His shaft suddenly hit her gspot and her hands flew up around his neck, holding on tight...
Grunting from his efforts, Arnav plunged further, harder...harder...
Her cries made his heart swell with desire...
He swayed a little, then pushed Khushi’s back against the refrigerator while still pumping with vigorous strokes.
She met his every movement with her own, pounding her lower body against the solid strength of his frame.
Her heart hammered in her chest as the room around them became more than a blur.
Close to reaching her second climax, Khushi tried squeezing her core tightly to coax him into coming.
But Arnav roared and tilted her hips, letting out a loud roar as he rammed his length onto her most vulnerable spot...
As she succumbed to the ultimate peak, Arnav joined her with a shuddering yell and a final, mind-blowing thrust.
For several moments, they stayed in that position while they waited to catch their breaths.
The cold metal refrigerator door helped cool her heated body.
If only there was something she could lean against to ease her racing mind.
She leaned her forehead into his broad shoulder and took in his soothing masculine scent.
To her amazement, his grip on her tightened..."So...how long will everyone be out? Long enough for a second act?"
Surprised, Khushi pushed back until she could see his handsome face.
"Are...are you kidding? You...you want to...I mean...AGAIN?”
He frowned after glancing at the kitchen clock as though giving the matter serious consideration. “I’d say at least five more times... I’ve had years to perfect moves in my head...I want to try them out...I want your body under my complete control...”
An intoxicating feeling, like drinking warmed brandy on a brisk night oozed from her bones to her pores.
"I...we...we have three hours...till they arrive home..."
A wicked chuckle rose from his lips as he marched their still joined bodies towards the bathroom..."Time for a hot shower...and I'm not talking about the temperature of the water..."

Arnav rolled his eyes as his phone buzzed…
"Is…is it them? Are they looking for me?"
Her tone was apprehensive and he knew she still felt flighty…
"I told you…I'm in charge…and I won't have anyone, ANYONE, force their way into our life…"
He squeezed Khushi's hand as he leant over to the coffee table to reach his mobile…
But as his eyes zoned in on the screen, his expression lit up…
"Ah, let me rephrase, anyone but this one…"
Khushi looked down at the caller ID and began grinning…
Arnav gave Khushi a quick kiss on her forehead and answered the call…
"Arnav Singh Raizada, at your service…"
He was instantly gifted with a musical little laugh, as well as a proud and truly erotic expression from his wife…
Pulling Khushi closer, he hit speakerphone, "You're on speakerphone now, so mummy and I can hear you…how is my little girl?"
Libbi slowly said, "well…I did something bad…"
Arnav exchanged glances with Khushi as she said, "Baby, what happened?"
Libbi paused and then tried to explain…"Well…Uncle Raj and I were listening into to Veenaji talk to my new aunties…"
Arnav felt Khushi stiffen slightly and intervened…"Hold on one second sweetie," and he leaned in close to Khushi…"I meant what I said…NO ONE pushed into our life…except our baby…"
Even though he could see that her eyes were still wary, she nodded and snuggled up close against him…
Keeping one arm around his wife, Arnav asked, "What happened baby girl, don't be scared to tell us…"
She audibly sighed and finally spilled the beans, "I had a moment of complete insanity…"
Khushi's expression was firm, but Arnav, he instantly burst into laughter…
Hitting his chest, Khushi glared at him, "STOP THAT! Your daughter is trying to confess to something! You can't just LAUGH at it!"
He tried to control himself even as Khushi tried to stop the grin that threatened to appear on her own lips….
"I'm sorry Libbi, the way you talk is just the cutest and sweetest thing I've ever heard…"
"You mean you're not angry with me!?"
"well," he coughed…"I don't know yet, you haven't actually said what you did…"
Libbi stuttered, "w…well…I…"
"Come on baby, don't be afraid…"
As soon as Khushi said that, Libbi's voice changed.
"Afraid!? I'm NOT afraid! I proved it by doing what I did!"
Khushi was about to reply but Arnav slammed his mouth to hers.
Pulling away quickly, he whispered, "Please, oh please let me handle this one?"
His eyebrows arched and she blinked slowly as she nodded…
"Alright my little monkey, no more stalling, what did you do…?"
And he remained quiet until Libbi had finished…
"I was listening to the conversation with Raj, when my new Aunties told Veenaji that they wouldn't leave until you returned home. Veenaji was trying so hard to be patient, and she even said she understood why they felt the way they did…but…they wanted to face mummy and you, and I didn't want mummy getting angry and I didn't want daddy to leave…I got worried that things would fall apart, and I…I raced into the kitchen…and…"
Khushi and Arnav could no longer contain their uproarious laughter as she explained what she did…
Their stomachs were hurting and tears were rolling down their cheeks when they finally calmed…
"Oh my GOD! That is the funniest thing I've heard in a long time!" Arnav forced out between laughs, "You are SO much like your mummy!"
Libbi's toned perked up, "So you're not mad!?"
Khushi spoke up, "Oh I'm furious with you, but that being said, I love you so much baby, and I understand why you…why you did…"
Khushi burst into a fit of giggles once more…
Arnav let her laugh and joyed in seeing his wife so free in his presence…
He bit back a chuckle and said, "Did you really run to the fridge, take out a squeeze bottle of chocolate sauce, and threaten them to leave?"
His face was almost tortured as he stopped himself from laughing, "Did you really manage to get them to run from the house?"
Arnav's voice was now starting to crack as a smile broke out across his face…"Did you really squirt chocolate sauce all over them?"
She paused, and then sighed, "Yes daddy."
Libbi heard them both laughing uncontrollably and had to hold the phone away from her ear…
It was then that Veena walked into the room, "Well? What have they said?"
Libbi held up the phone and Veena heard them giggling like children…
Hands on her hips, she shook her head…"Like mother and father, like daughter…"
Taking the phone, Veena tried to get their attention…"Hello!!! Khushi!??!???!"
"Listen to me, I know this is funny, but you weren't here! Your sisters were COVERED with chocolate icecream sauce!!!"
Khushi couldn't stop, the laughter went on and on…
"Please…please understand, I know that it may seem rude or…"
"RUDE!?" Veena shouted, "It was HYSTERICAL! I've never seen two pushy people be put in their place by a 9 year old!"
Arnav's cheeks were sore from smiling so much…"Were they alright? Di and Payal?"
"Ofcourse they were, it was just icecream topping…"
"COLD Ice cream topping…" Libbi chimed in from the background…
"Look at the mess!" Payal shreiked…
Anjali was scowling, "That child is IMPOSSIBLE! Why is a neighbouring child even there!"
Payal paused, and when they locked eyes, a smile crept over their faces…
"You looked so funny," she made a face and pretended to act out how Anjali looked, "AH! Get that chocolate away from me! Oh no it hit me! Help!"
Anjali smirked, "Oh yeah? You were no better! You practically used me as a body sheild! That's why I have more sauce on MY dress than you do!"
Pulling into their hotel, they parked the car and tried to stealthily sneak past the questioning stares and up to their room…
Once safely inside they both looked from the bathroom, then back to each other…
"Well," Anjali said matter-of-factly, "since I am WAY more chocolatey than you are, I should shower first…"
Payal surveyed Anjali's sari, that was in fact completely covered…"That's fair…and I'm sorry for hiding behind you…"
There was a moment of silence, and then they began laughing…
"I've never had that happen before! That kid has quite an aim!"
Payal nodded, "What a feisty little girl, she really wanted to protect Arnavji and Khushi…"
Anjali frowned, "Why do you think that is?"
"I guess because she likes them…but why would she have met them?"
"Did you not see how Veenaji and Raj love her! It was as though she were Khushi's own daughte-" Anjali's voice trailed off…
Payal went pale…"No…she…Di, I mean, she's about 9 years…old…"
Complete and utter shame took front seat in the room…
"Oh my God…"
"She was scared…"
Payal nodded, "She WAS, when she chased us out, she said…"
"I can't let you ruin this…" Anjali finished Payal's sentence…
She grabbed Payal's hand…"That little girl…"
"She's so much like my sister, I should have seen it! We were so pushy, we were so determined to see them before they were ready…"
Anjali opened her sticky bag and pulled out her phone…
Quickly dialling, she waited for an answer…
"oh Anjali? Um…Please accept my apologies once again, I…"
"We are so sorry."
"What? I don't understand…"
"We were pushing for this meeting to happen, and were not considering the feelings of the people around us…"
Payal took the phone, "Hello, this is Khushi's sister…"
"Are you alright Payal? I know that Anjali caught the brunt of the chocolate…"
Payal laughed, "Yes, Di did get covered…but…I…I must ask…that little girl…is she…is she their daughter…?"
Veena went quiet.
Anjali lifted her brows, mouthing, "Well?!"
"I…I have to go now…I'm sorry I can't answer your question…"
"So what did we agree?"
"No more food fights…" Libbi repeated.
"That's a good girl…" Khushi said smiling in relief.
Arnav interrupted, "Personally, I'm all for mango food fights…"
Khushi's head darted up and she gasped, "SHH!!!!"
"What do you mean daddy?"
"He doesn't mean anything baby, we'll be on our way over soon…"
"Yes," he grew concerned, "why do you suddenly sound so sad?"
"Well, can I ask you something?"
Arnav smiled, "You KNOW you can, anytime, anything at all…"
"Well…will you sleep in the car again?"
"Libbi!" Khushi jolted up, "You can't ask him to do that…"
Arnav scowled at his wife, "She sure can!" he held the phone closer to his lips, "I most certainly will, my princess…"
Khushi tried to move away as she yelled, "You most certainly won't!"
Glaring at Khushi, he leaned over her, intimidating her with his size… "Khushi, I will do ANYTHING to prove to you and our daughter that-"
"You will stay with me…with us…INSIDE the house…"
Arnav actually turned pale with shock…"W…what?"
Khushi's eyes shed soft tears as she replied, "You're my husband…and I want you with me…"
"Yeep! Yay! Yippie! This is great! I'm going to go have a bath, and then I will clean up EVERYTHING! This is so exciting! I'll see you soon! I love you mummy, I love you daddy!"
And Libbi hung up.
Arnav wanted to speak, but could barely summon his words as his eyes were glued to Khushi's…
"Do you mean it?"
Khushi became nervous, "Would, would you prefer, to have us come here? I mean, It will be different, but…I can try and…"
Dropping his mobile, he grabbed her tightly with both hands, "I will go WHEREVER you want me to go…I don't want to take you away from anything Khushi, or anyone…I just want you…I want Libbi…I want us…"
"Then you will stay?"
Khushi's heart was struck with empathy for her broken husband…
His voice was rasping, his expression one of pure and utter submission…
My strong husband…the one who is always in control…and yet, it is my words that he yields to…
Instead of answering her, Arnav leaned in closer, pressing his lips to the corner of her mouth…"I want nothing more than to be with you…I just love you so damn much…"
"I don't want you to feel that I'm…"
Arnav swiftly grabbed her, pulling her body onto his lap, her legs now straddling him as he held her tight…
"You have the power to make me do ANYTHING Khushi…" he fisted her hair, yanking on it to prove his point…"Don't you REALIZE that already? I may be in control in our love making, but don't you KNOW that you hold all control over my heart?!"
She could barely move an inch as she stared head on into his eyes…
"But you said, you said that you wouldn't LET me leave you…How am I in control?"
His eyes softened, "I said that I wouldn't let you…and I meant it…but Khushi…if I were TRULY in control, I'd have the power to walk away… You have stripped me of all and ANY power I may have ever had…and it is YOU who have had the complete control over my heart and soul, since the moment I met you, since the moment I was idiot enough to drive you away from me, and for the entirety of these past nine years, where you have remained constantly in my mind…there is nothing left of me Khushi…you own my heart, my body, my mind…"
His lips soon came crashing down onto hers…
I know, I know, I know...I'M SORRY IT'S SHORT! I will write more very soon!
