OS : Damn That Laptop!






"Khushi calm down...It's just another 24 hours...then I'll come back, please try to..."

"NO!" Khushi's bangles chinked on her wrists as her hands moved to emphasizeher agitation... "You KNOW how I feel about London!"

Arnav tried to hold back, but he couldn't stifle his grin...

Since the eradication of that terrible misunderstanding, their relationship had blossomed on many levels...

The Smiling became laughter...

The Disagreements became Fights...

But more importantly, the Love became Unquenchable...

Arnav didn't want to travel to London for this meeting...


But it was imperative that he was present...

Khushi had even demanded that Akash and Aman accompany him...

"Khushi..." he tried to keep the levity hidden from his tone..."I have called you EVERY hour since leaving you...I think my London office is convinced that I've gone insane..."

Khushi laughed..."I'm sorry...I'm sorry Arnavji...it's just that...all this...brings back memories that..."

"I understand Khushi...I feel the same...but I still have to stay an extra 24 hours..."

Khushi stood up and began to pace around the room...

"Laad Govenor! If you were here I would..." she let out a scream..."and if the webcam on this laptop weren't the only way I could SEE you right now, I would throw it completely out the window!!!"

"Khushi, relax, Please sit down and talk to me..."

She started to bite her nails and Arnav wished he could reach through the screen and move her hair aside to gaze at her luscious lips...

Khushi finally sat down...

Hands in her lap...

A defeated look on her face...

"No no Jaan please don't look like that...Akash and Aman are here, PLUS you can SEE that I've arrived safely..."

"But I can't touch you..." she murmured quietly...

"Yes, THAT is my biggest complaint right now..."

Khushi looked up..."Even through this screen I can feel your eyes caress me..."

Arnav straightened in his chair and shifted...

"God Khushi, my next meeting starts in a few minutes...Don't get me all hot under the collar now!"

She grinned at the sound of his agitated voice...

A blinking red light started to flash on the laptop's keyboard...

He saw the confusion in her eyes..."What's wrong? Khushi?"

"I...I don't know...There's a red light flashing...I don't know what that means..."

Arnav laughed out loud..."Khushi quickly plug the computer in...the battery is low and it will shut down if you don-"

His voice was cut off and the screen went black...

"Arnavji?! Are you there!?"

She jumped up and started pushing the power button...

Then what he had said hit her..."the battery is low..."

Khushi slammed the laptop shut and growled..."Damn That Laptop!"

Almost instantaneously, Khushi's mobile phone rang...

"Khushi?"

"I HATE YOUR LAPTOP!"

Arnav was now laughing uncontrolably...

"That's NOT funny! How am I going to talk to you if the BLOODY thing isn't working!"

"Khushi, RELAX! You're starting to sound like me!"

Taking a deep breath, she regained some composure...

"I miss you Arnavji...I just wish I could turn around and see you standing there..."

There was a pause...

"Arnavji?"

"Khushi...Turn Around..."



Khushi stood perfectly still...

Keeping her mobile close to her ear, she nervously whispered..."What?"

Arnav smiled..."I said, turn around sweetheart..."

Her grip on the phone tightened..."Why...has the computer turned on?"

There was another pause...

Suddenly, she felt hot breath on her neck..."Something is definitely turned on..."

The phone slowly slid out of her hand and she spun around...

A wide grin spread across his face as he gazed down at her...

"Hi..." his voice was smooth as his arms wrapped around her waist...

Emotion struck her full force.

She hurled herself into his arms, sunk all ten fingers into the midnight depth of his hair and urged his mouth down on hers.

Her tongue thrust between his lips savoring his unique taste.

They kissed each other hungrily, Arnav's hands gliding down her back, pulling her hips into his as their tongues battled in an intimate game, until, breathless, she pulled away.   

He groaned. "If that's the way I'm greeted every time I come home from London,  I may travel there more often."

Pulling her closer, he lowered his lips to hers again...

"Oh no you don't!!!" She tried unsuccessfully to push him off of her.

Khushi's eyes began to flash with fury..."You were here!? the WHOLE time!? teasing me!? You KNEW how worried I was! You KNEW that I didn't know how to work that...that stupid THING!" her eyes motioned towards the laptop...

Supressing the urge to laugh, he genuinly did realize her concern for him...

"Khushi, forgive me...but I just couldn't resist...I get the urge to 'tease' from you..." he winked down at her...

Mentally she forgave him instantly, but her lips twitched in annoyance as she said, "I don't know if I'm ready to forgive you for this..."

"You're ready..." He grinned as he nuzzled her neck.

Khushi felt her tummy flip, "Arnavji...you're not being fair. You can make my body turn flips for you, but that doesn't mean my brain wants to follow."

She attempted to pull away again...but he only held her tighter...

"I'll take your body," he said. "You can keep that crazy brain of yours..." He dipped her over his arm and let his open mouth hover over hers...

She made the whimper sound and he found her lips, kissing her so she couldn't protest.

With him now near her again, she forgot about her fears...

She only knew being with him fulfilled her in a way she'd never experienced before, and she would take each moment he gave her as a precious gift...

As Arnav slowed the kiss down to a sensual simmer, he straightened up and slowly moved their joined bodies back towards the couch...

They sat together, the very way the once woke up together after the family had thrown the "pretend bali" honeymoon...

Khushi interlaced her fingers with his and smiled admiring the size and strength of his hand in hers.   

He brought her hand up and opened her palm to place a tender kiss.

His gaze wandered over her face as if searching for something. 

She caught a familiar, wicked gleam in charcoal eyes that made her suddenly wary.   

"Why are you looking at me like that?" Khushi asked nervously...

He touched her hair, lightly brushing his fingertips over the shining strands.

Her hair seemed to be alive.

It caught at his fingers, clung to them, wound around them as if trying to hold on forever.

"I am captivated by your hair. . . ."

His hand drifted down and cupped the back of her neck.

Pulling her close, he pressed his lips briefly against her cheek.

"Your flushed pink cheeks are so soft. . . ." 

He brushed her lips lightly with his. 



"But your mouth...your constantly talking, off pitch singing, tantalizingly delicious mouth...may just be my favorite thing about you..."

His lips pressed against hers again, harder this time.

"They're full and sensual and so perfect for me, so damn perfect..."

He captured her lips for one last, fierce kiss, then he released her.

Khushi was still clinging to him after the kiss ended...

"Wow..." she breathed..."So...shall we...recharge..."

"You better believe it..." he growled...

Scooping her up in his arms, he walked towards the bed...

"Arnavji...I mean, recharge the laptop..."
