OS : Shadows







Speeding home, he slammed on the breaks, and quickly strode inside...

As Arnav approached his room, he heard the sound of quiet sobs...

He entered to see his wife...

Packing a bag...

Looking to the ground...

Eyes flowing with tears...

The sorrowful sound of her cries drew him forward like a magnet...

"Khushi..."

Just hearing him speak her name brought more tears...

He clenched his teeth..."No...No please...Khushi..."

She slowly stood up, gripping the handle of her packed bag till her knuckles turned white...

With nerves aflame, and heart beginning to spike, he spoke carefully, "Khushi...Khushi I'm sorry...I should NOT have said those hurtful things to you...I...I was..."

"Please look after Di...and yourself..." she interrupted with a whisper...

Ice cold fear began to spread through his body...

"Khushi...khushi please..."

Finally she looked up...their gazes met as realization split through him...

"I'm leaving..." she began to walk towards the doors...

Unable to bear the pain, Arnav grabbed her hand and hauled her back, throwing her bag out of their way...

She blinked in shock as more tears streamed down her face...

Before she could even breathe, he took her mouth in a brutal kiss.

His mouth was hungry, lacking the tenderness he had thought would be there when he imagined their first caress.

Instead, he forced her lips apart and thrust his tongue inside, plundering her like a starving man.

Shuffling his feet, he pressed her against the bedroom doors and bent his knees, grinding his hips to hers.

A whimper filled his mouth.

One that spoke of hunger, of need, of unbridled control released.

Khushi tried to resist but felt too weak.

Knees beginning to shake, Arnav held her fiercely to keep her from falling.

Falling...

Her mind woke up and startled her...

Planting both hands on his chest, she pushed him forcefully away...

"Khushi...I'm sorry!"

"NO!"

Arnav began to panic...his heart beating wildly..."Khushi...I'm sorry, forgive me PLEASE!"

She turned to look at him with burning eyes..."Sorry?! You are only sorry until the NEXT time you want to misjudge me! NO! No I cannot be put through that again! NO!"

"I didn't mean what I said...I..."

Eyes that were drowning in pain looked up at him..."That's just the problem...you DID mean it..."

Picking up her bag she hastily made her way out of the room...

Arnav walked beside her as she began to walk decidedly out of his life...

"Khushi...I know you are innocent in this! I know you were the victim too! I shouldn't have said what I said! Please listen Khushi...you can't leave me..."

Standing tall now...she mentally denied she was in love with him.

Her silence was now her biggest statement...

Reaching the bottom of the stairs Arnav gripped her arm and threw her up against the wall...

He had to play the only card he had left...

"You, are my wife! You are NOT allowed to leave! We are MARRIED!"

"Married! MARRIED?! This isn't a marriage! This is a contract! And at the end of 6 months, You will no longer be my husband, and I will never again be your wife..."

As she tried to move away, he yanked her back and pressed his body against hers, leaving her immobile...

"Khushi Kumari Gupta, I will do everything in my power to make you Mrs. Arnav Singh Raizada...forever..."

The spark that once flickered in her eyes was now gone...

She mentally screamed at herself '"NO! This torture finally has to be put to rest!"

Arnav was no longer in control...

He could see he was losing her for real this time...

The only woman he would ever truly love...

"Arnavji, whatever time 'we' had, is now over!"

Arnav stayed still as a statue...

His heart no longer beating with life...

It was beaten.

As he felt Khushi move away again, he became desperate...

Holding her firmly, his mouth latched fiercely onto hers...

Khushi fought.

She pushed.

She twisted, writhed and physically demanded escape...

But Arnav's grip was unyelding...

His power and strength was now dominating her with full force...

White-hot desire slammed unmercifully into his body.

His breath caught, tearing their lips apart.

Their eyes finally met.

Passion, hot and alive, smoldered between them.

And yet the hurt he had mercilessly bestowed on her was ripping her heart into shreds...

He could see her bleeding expression...

Heart pounding like a drum against his chest, he slipped his hands lower to brace her hips.

Light as a feather, he raised her to hold her tightly against his hard body.

He closed his eyes.

Damn It!!!

She felt so right, so perfect in his arms.

The urge to berate himself was warring with the need to possess her...

He lifted his lids and took her mouth in another scorching kiss.

Using his body to shield her, he braced her against the wall and traced his fingers up her rib cage...

He felt her gasp into his mouth as his hands covered her breasts..

His lips pressed more brutally hers at the same time he wedged her nipple between a thumb and forefinger and squeezed.

Devouring her mouth, he swallowed her cry and increased the pressure of his fingers.

All thoughts of where they were or the pain that surrounded them were gone.

He released her hips but not her lips and she slid down his body.
When her feet touched ground, he glanced up to see her eyelids fall midway, her eyes reflecting his own desire.

Their mouths fused, teeth clashing.

Desperate to get closer, he once again pressed her firmly against the wall.

As he covered her body like a second skin, she released a cry that touched his heart.

And then a door upstairs burst open, swinging back so hard it struck the wall with a bang.

She jerked her mouth away...

Her eyes were wide as she tried to back into the shadows incase it was Anjali who had emerged from her room...

Arnav saw his Di standing in the light above him...

Arnav saw his wife standing in the shadows before him...

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