SS : The Gunshot (FINALE)


Frightened to move.

Terrified to leave her side.

Arnav stayed with Khushi.

Never taking his eyes off his wife...

Cursing every time he even blinked...

"You are my love...and my life...my one and only...and i will be right here when you wake up..."

He leaned in to kiss her almost every 10 minutes...

The warmth of her lips sent surges of warmth to his heart...

Arnav spoke to her constantly...

His mind kept flashing back to all the hurtful things he'd ever done to her...

Each time one came to mind, he would immediately apologize to her...

He had done so much...so much to hurt her...using her all that time...giving that scumbag unlimited access to lurk around her...

"Well from now things change...Di has the whole family...and you...my love...you have me...and I, Arnav Singh Raizada will never let anything or anyone hurt you again..."

.......

More than 24 hours had passed...

Family had been in and out to see her...

Doctors were still astounded as to how she had survived...

Her wound was improving...her vital organs were healing...

Arnav had fallen asleep a few times and woke up furious with himself...

He leaned in to kiss her lips...his lips lingered on hers...

He was about to pull back when he felt her lips twitch beneath his...

He brushed his mouth against hers again...he could feel her mouth trembling...

He withdrew praying that as soon as he opened his eyes...he would see hers...

He opened his eyes...his heart shook with anticipation as he saw her eyes flickering...

He held held her face, caressing her skin...

And seconds later, Arnav's soul came back to life...

Khushi opened her eyes and the first thing they both saw...was each other...

Arnav's heart detonated with rapture...his eyes burst forth with light...He  caressed her face exceedingly gently...He broke forth in a whisper..."Khushi...I....I...Khushi..."

She looked at Arnav ...her voice raspy and barely audible..."wh...where...where have i been?"

He smiled and held her hand to his lips kissing her desperately..."I...i don't know...but i'm so damn glad you're back..."

..........

1 year later...

Arnav finished early  at the office and went to  the Gupta house to pick up his wife...

He practically sped there...eager to see Khushi...

When he arrived her saw her through the window talking with Babuji...his recovery had progressed so much that he could now hold a conversation...

Khushi saw Arnav through the window...They both smiled at each other for a brief second before Arnav raced into the house ...

She stood up seeing him run...her husband...running to her...she hurried to the doors...

Not wasting a single second they embraced each other...

"My God, i missed you..."

"You saw me this morning Arnavji..."

"That was hours ago..."

He held the back of her head and kissed her softly...

They both spent some time talking with Khushi's family ...

Finally  saying their goodbyes...they walked to the car...

Arnav had  been treating Khushi like a breakable piece of porcelain...He held her hand , he opened her door, he basically lifted her into the car...

Leaning over to buckle her seat belt...he heard her say, "Arnavji???" 

Still looming over her, he looked up into her eyes...his hand rose up to caress her face..."mmmm?"

"You know you don't have to do everything little thing for me...I am quite well...i have recovered from the..."
 
He stopped her with a firm kiss and whispered against her lips..."NO...no...don't say it...please..."

Arnav moved closer and let his open mouth explore hers...no pressure, no urgency...just a leasurely, luxurious kiss full of love and  promise...

...............

They arrived at their home...

As they walked through the doors, an exquisite, wide-eyed toddler bounced towards them...

Khushi raced to her little niece and lifted her up in her arms, swinging her around saying how much she missed her...

"I miss ooo too" She would always reply...

"Khushi!!" Arnav quickly took baby Khushi from his wife..."no lifting! Please!"

"Arnavji...I'm FINE...really..." Khushi looked at her namesake and smiled mischievously..."then again...maybe i shouldn't lift her...she's becoming sooooo heavy after eating all those Jalebi we made earlier!"

Both girls giggled and Arnav felt his heart almost combust with joy...

Anjali walked in, "Chote! Khushiji! you're home! Finally! Khushi and Khushi have been annoying everyone in the house with their constant..."

"no no Amma!! Don't tell him!!" her tiny arms were flailing around as Arnav held her...

"we have to show them don't we!" Khushi said happily...

Both Khushi's ran out to another room and not even 5 minutes later they returned...

They stood in the middle of the room...

Anjali started the music..."Chote...this is their favourite at the moment..."

As the music started...Arnav's eyes filled to the brim with happy tears...

His little niece had her silky black hair done up in a ponytail...a gorgeous headband on her head...

His wife wore the exact same outfit that she wore on the night of Payal and Akash's Sangeet...

He stared at them in awe...smiling through his tears as he watched his niece and his wife dance crazily to "Ek Do Teen"...

Anjali walked over to Arnav and he put his arm around her...

"look Di...Look how happy she is..."

"which one?" Anjali said laughing...

His eyes were glued to his dancing wife...her smiling face...her beautiful wispy hair...her smooth movements...

When the song finished...Khushi and baby Khushi ran up to him...they were completely puffed....."did woo like??"

Arnav lifted his niece Khushi..."Like it? It was beautiful...perfect...i LOVED it..."

"Both times..." he added...wrapping his arm around his wife...

Khushi smiled brightly at her uncle..."I love woo!"

"I love you Khushi..." he said kissing her nose...

As the three of them hugged... leaned in close to his wife..."I love you Khushi..." and his lips touched hers...

  2. That was awesome, read all the parts together, I actually thought Khushi died and am so glad that you kept her alive. That was one hell of a suspense but truly worth it, loved the SS
