Hiya back with another chapter for my Twistinians.
Internal monologues are as bold as Sai.
Without any further ado…
20th December 2020,
18 days ago Tai shocked us while fainting near the staircase after saying Sanskar dada’s name.
Sanskar dada had run towards her, hugged her limp body and said that he is never going to leave her ever again to the disliking of some family members especially Kaku and Pathrelakha Bhabhi.
“Dada aap or Devi Tai(You and sister Devi, brother)?” Sai asked and Sanskar dada nodded.
“Haan main aur Devyani ek dusre se pyaar karte hain(Yes, me and Devyani love each other).” He replied back, shocking most of us to the core.
“I can hear a but coming,” Sai said again and he nodded.
“A big one.” He told her.
After a pause Shekhar dada asked, “Main bataoon ya tum karne wala ho(Should I tell them or are you)?”
“Off course I will as I’m the main protagonist of the story!”
“Abe yaar mujhko Pathrelakha bana diya tune(Oh man, you made me Pathrelakha).”
“What?” Bhabhi asked and they shook their heads.
“Dadi watches a serial named Ghum hai kisikey pyaar meiin in short GHKKPM and it’s the story of Sai and Virat,”
“A serial to do with our names? But what’s up with the Pathrelakha name?” I asked while being surprised.
“Pathrelakha urf Pakhi aur Virat ek dusre ko pasand karne laage the par dho dinoon mein kaise pyaar hota hai ki Pakhi Virat ki Bhabhi hote hue bi uske piche baag thi hain?Yeh baat mujhe samajh nahi aati(Parthrelekha aka Pakhi and Virat started liking each other but how do you love someone in only two days, that Pakhi being Virat’s sister-in-law still is running after him? That’s what I don’t get).” Shekhar dada explained Pakhi in a whole paragraph. My Bhabhi seemed to be quite interested in that fictional character.
“Dada can we please focus on your love story and not some stupid fictional character with obsession issues.” My wife says and I smile at the way she says it. Pakhi Wahaini rolls her eyes at her and I want to slap her one.
“Yeah so Devyani and I were spending a lot of time together and after 6 months of friendship I realised that I was falling in love with her but…” Sanskar dada didn’t finish his sentence as Tai woke after a few minutes of unconsciousness.
“Stay away from me,” she shouted at him and he was too shocked to react.
“Virat Sir aap kya soch rahe ho(What are you thinking, Virat Sir)?” Sai asks me, looking at me with concern.
“About Tai and Sanskar dada.” I answer back and she nods.
“I have been too.”
“What should we do?” I ask her.
“Let them resolve their misunderstandings and maybe there’s a chance for them to get back together.” My wife says and I nod agreeing with her.
“So what are you doing today?” I ask her and she just shrugs.
“Let’s go out for a while.” I suggest and she says okay. I let her get ready in the bathroom while I get ready in the bedroom.
After five minutes I’m finished and waiting for my wife to come out. I sit down on the bed and involve myself with my phone.
I don’t notice her coming out but when I see my breath hitches. She looks mesmerising in the sky blue saree.
It’s now my second favourite colour after yellow and both colours suit her a lot. My heart and mind agree with one another.
I’m just looking at her like I’m in a trance.
She snaps her fingers and I come back to the normal world. I walk a bit further to be close to her, then I take her hand and pull her towards. As her body hits into mine like a piece to a perfect puzzle. Her eyes shut but still she is pouting.
I laugh little and do something that is the least expected, I kiss her nose and cheeks, making her turn completely red.
My gaze is on her pouty lips but as soon as she opens her eyes, she pushes me away and goes towards the dressing table to complete her look for today. She wears her mangalsutra and fills her hairline with vermillion.
And I cannot stop myself from saying, “you look beautiful.”
“Thank you,” she shyly says, walks towards me, kisses my cheek and runs off whereas I just fall on the bed in happiness with a smile grazing on my lips.
My excitement takes over me as I have planned something special for her, I want to confess my feelings to her…yes, I like her but I’m not sure if I love her yet I cannot imagine my life without her.
She is totally different from the girls I have met before because she carries her heart on her sleeve. She is not heartless like Pakhi Bhabhi or Kaku.
I get up from my bed and run downstairs, where I see that my wife is with my mother and they are talking about something. Must be about the plan for tonight. I’m nervous about it as I don’t want to mess it up.
I walk towards them and ask Sai, “are you ready to leave?”
She nods and Kaku angrily asks while pointing at Sai as if she’s the culprit, “where are you going with that girl?”
“Out and we’ll be back in the evening.” I say, take Sai’s hand in mine and drag her outside before anyone can say anything else.
I sense someone’s eyes on us and I know who it is, our lovely sister-in-law Pathrelekha, not.
We then walk to my motorcycle, I hand her a helmet, I take the other one, we both wear it. At first I sit on the bike and then she does.
“Hold on tightly,” I tell her, she then is about to hold the sides of the motorcycle when I say, “it’s better if you hold my shoulders or wrap your arms around my waist.”
She embraces me, I start the engine and we drive off. I feel freer away from that cage that does not let us have a good time where taunts, hatred and pain are prioritised than love, togetherness and being an actual family.
“Virat Sir are you alright?” Sai asks as if knowing what I’m thinking.
“I’m okay,” I say and continue, “but for now don’t call me Virat Sir just Virat.”
“Okay Virat!” She says and the way she pronounces my name with respect which is different from when Patrelekha Bhabhi calls me by my name.
Five minutes later, I park my motorcycle and then we walk towards the lake side.
Soon we reach my favourite place by the lake which is hidden a bit as trees are all around us and a bench is there too.
We sit down and she says with a beautiful smile on her face, “it is so beautiful and peaceful here.”
“Yes, it is. I come here when I need some peace and quiet as well as I love looking at the lake while thinking about what I have done right or wrong.” I reply back looking at her instead of the lake. She turns to look at me too, smiles and lays her head on my shoulder.
We just sit there and look towards the water in silence. When I try to adjust myself, I realise that she is asleep. I then kiss her forehead as she snuggles more into me. My lips are formed to a smile while looking back to the lake.
Not even 5 minutes later she stirs awake.
“Did you sleep well?” I ask her.
“I had the best sleep ever.” She replies back with a grin.
“That’s great. Do you want to eat something?”
“Yes, I’m up for something small,” I look at her and she then says the reason why, “I’m not that hungry because after tonight a lot of things could change.”
“Hmm, but maybe it won’t.” I say in a hopeful way.
“I hope so, but now let’s get something to eat.”
So we get up from the bench, walk back to our ride. We drive for about two minutes and then go to a small café to have some cheese and onion
pastries as we both like the same flavour.
We find a table in the far corner, we sit down.
This is the perfect place to talk to her without being disturbed. My mind tells me and my heart happily.
“I want to tell you something,” we both say at the same time.
“You can tell me first.” She says.
“No, lady’s first.” I say but one glare of hers quietens me as she can be scary.
“Okay, I’ll go first,” I say after a small pregnant pause.
“So I wanted to tell you,” she looks at me, “that I like you a lot Sai, I don’t know how or when it happened but I want to make our marriage work.”
She smiles at me but says nothing.
“It’s okay if you don’t feel the same way as me.” I encouragingly say.
“It’s nothing like that. I want to show you how I feel about you but not today.” She gives me a naughty look, I blush as well as I’m surprised.
After that we start digging into our pastries and talk about anything and everything that comes into our minds.
As I look at the watch, we both know, it’s time…
