FF : BREAKOUT Part 20




Before Khushi was entirely into the room, both men flew toward her.

She felt them hit her body with enough jarring force that the wind left her lungs and she gasped into the night air.

And then she was falling.

Arnav lunged for the window, forgetting Shyam as he watched in horror as Khushi spiraled downward.

He grabbed for her hand, but she slipped from his grasp.

“No!” He clutched the window ledge as he watched her slam into a wide partition below and then bounce onto the hard pavement, where she lay motionless.

Arnav stared, completely numb for a brief moment, but then he felt like his heart had exploded.

Nausea washed over him.

Was she . . . was she dead? Had he lost her?



………………………..



1 hour earlier…

Why?

He stood outside, staring at the stars... 

But amongst the beauty, the question once again bombarded his brain.

Why?

"Why would someone  want to treat her this way!?"

His fist turned pale as he tightened his fingers…

"Bhai?"

Akash had only spoken quietly, but his one word made Arnav jump…

"Akash…" he sighed…"You gave me a start…"

"Sorry...I just...I want to talk to you…"

"Yeah…?"

"I want to know if YOU are alright…?"

"No. I'm not. No way NEAR alright."

"Is he still…"

"Yes…" Arnav's voice was sharp…"Yes he is...and I just CAN'T understand WHY someone would hurt her like this! Or why they would WANT to…!"

Akash firmly planted his hands on Arnav's shoulders…"Bhai...If you need me...or need anything...please ask. I am here for you…"

Arnav tried to smiled, but his heart was in a rage…"Thanks Akash...I have to end this...I have to...I can't keep living with the fear of losing her…"

"How are you going to do that?"

His eyes went black with hatred…"I'm going to find him...I'm going to end him…"


……………...


Khushi had woken up and redressed…

Only to walk to her bedroom door and overhear what her husband said…

"I'm going to find him...I'm going to end him…"

Panic began to encompass her heart…

"No...No…"

Taking a deep breath, she tried to think clearly…

"I said that I wouldn't  put myself in danger...So I won't...but I can't let Arnavji do that either…"

Pacing around, she came up with a plan…



……………………..



"I know what he said...I heard him clearly…"

"Mrs. Raizada, you have been under threat for a long time now. Are you sure?"

Groaning, her hand flew to her forehead…"Listen to me! I know what I heard! I'm just asking that you follow him...make sure he is safe...make sure he doesn't do anything that could get him hurt or imprisoned…"

Khushi waited.

"We will see what we can do…"

"No! That's not good enough! My husband, the man who pays YOU to have ME protected, is in danger! I know it!"

"I will discuss this with my superior…"

Kicking the table in front of her, she huffed…"It might be too late then!"

"That's the best I can offer for now."

Letting out a scream full of angst, she hung up…

"No...I will not let Arnavji get hurt…"



………………………



Arnav heard Khushi walking around in their room as he walked closer…

"I swear, if he calls again…"

That second, his phone began to vibrate…

He remained silent as he accepted the call…

"Mr. Raizada?"

For the first time, Arnav felt disappointed that it WASN'T Shyam…

"I got your update from the security downstairs...thankyou for…"

"No…" the officer interrupted…"It's not about that, we received a call from your--"

Before the man could continue, Arnav heard 'call waiting' begin to beep…

"Wait. Please hold the line, I'm getting another call…"

Arnav put the police on hold and answered…"Hello?"

"ahhh...this time I get a hello Salle Saab?"

"Good. I wanted to talk to you…"

Shyam snickered…"really? I didn't know you'd be so pleased with me calling two times in one day…"

"I want to have it out… with you… now…"

"...really?"

Shyam sounded smug, which only angered Arnav further…

"Yes. I've had it with you and your sickening stupidity!!!"

Shyam chuckled…"This will be good...Once I'm done with YOU...I can finally have my fill of her...and this time...you won't be around to stop me…"

Just as Arnav was about to explode, Khushi walked out of their room…

She blushed slightly as she motioned that she was going to check on the babies…

His heart fumed and broke at the same time…

Once she was out of sight, Arnav growled…"Where...Where do you want to meet?"

Shyam rattled off an address…

"Fine…" Arnav said, and ended the call.

He completely forgot about the police that were on hold on the other line…

Rushing to his room ,he squeezed his eyes shut…"Damn bastard!" 

With his mind made up, he grabbed his keys and stormed out of the house.



………..


What Arnav didn't see, was his wife, sneak past him and head downstairs…

She grinned slightly as she climbed into the boot of his car…

"Haven't done this in awhile…" she thought to herself…

Turning the GPS on in her phone, she texted the chief of police…

Arnavji is driving to meet Shyam. I just know it. Please track my location via my phone.

Khushi waited.

But she didn't have to wait long.

A mere second after she had sent the text, she heard Arnav give the guard outside a muffled command and then jump in and start the car…

Driving.

Khushi thought back to the moment just before she left the house…

"Di...Jiji...please take care of the babies, Arnavji and I are going out for awhile...please?"

Anjali and Payal glanced at each other…
 
"Ofcourse we will Khushi...are you okay? Where are you going?"

Khushi gave a nervous smile…"We're...we're going to  go for a drive…"

Texting the police once again, she prayed fervently that they would reply.

"Do I have to pay them too!?" she muttered…

Before she could complain any more, the car stopped.

Once she heard him walking away, she climbed over the back seats and used her own key to unlock the door…

"Damn it…" she looked from left to right…"Where did he go?"



……….



Pitch black.

Arnav kept alert as he ascended the stairs of the dark building.

It smelled of strong alcohol, dirt and sweat.

He didn't want to think of what would happen if Khushi knew he was there…

Just as he was about to pound on the door, it swung open…

Shyam.

Patience...gone.

Sense...gone.

Arnav lunged at Shyam, firmly latching his hands around his throat…

The action caught Shyam off guard as he tried to scream out for help…

Arnav fought.

He let his anger release the beast inside him.

His fists began to sting as he kept up the attack, but as he drew back to strike once more, his arm was pulled brutally from behind…

Arnav felt his whole body get thrown back as something hard lashed against his face…

Dazed, Arnav saw that two men had entered the room…

One holding him at bay, and the other helping Shyam get up off the floor…

"Well…" Shyam snaped as he spat out blood…"And I thought you'd be happy to see me…"

Arnav snarled…

Lifting his shirt, Shyam pulled out a gun.

"And this...is where I...end...YOU!"

"NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

……..


Khushi wandered back and forth…

It was so dark…

She could barely see in front of her…

Holding on tight to a side rail, she slowly climbed the stairs in front of her…

"I don't even know if I'm going the right way…" she thought…

She was just about to turn around when she heard a loud crash accompanied with bangs and grunts…

Her heart began to thud…

So hard that it hurt…

Lifting her phone, she began to dial for emergency…

That's when she heard something else, making her freeze in terror.

She heard loud running footsteps…

"There are more people here…"

Her mind was in overdrive…

She heard emergency pick up…."Help me... Help... I am Khushi Kumari Gupta Singh Raizada, and…"

"And this...is where I...end...YOU!"

Hearing that sentence, stopped hers.

Dropping the phone, she bolted up the stairs screaming… "NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"



…………………




Both men recognized the sound of her scream.

Arnav's eyes flooded with horror, while Shyam's glared with amusement...

Khushi burst into the room and instantly locked eyes with her husband…

She began to run to Arnav.

Before she was entirely into the room, both of Shyam's men flew toward her.

She felt them hit her body with enough jarring force that the wind left her lungs and she gasped into the night air.

And then she was falling.

Arnav lunged for the window, forgetting Shyam as he watched in horror as Khushi spiraled downward.

He grabbed for her hand, but she slipped from his grasp.

“No!” He clutched the window ledge as he watched her slam into a wide partition below and then bounce onto the hard pavement, where she lay motionless.

Arnav stared, completely numb for a brief moment, but then he felt like his heart had exploded.

Nausea washed over him.

Was she . . . was she dead? Had he lost her?



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



"NO! NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Arnav screamed as he spun around, only to be blocked once again…

"Well…" Shyam smirked…"she dropped in...and now, she dropped out…"

"I WILL FUCKING KILL YOU!" Arnav hissed, turning into an animal

Sirens began to ring out.

Flashing lights were beginning to illuminate their surroundings.

"The police!" screamed one of Shyam's men, as they began to disperse…

Not give one more thought to Shyam, Arnav barrelled from the room...

What he saw as he sped down the stairs brought a flood of unwanted emotion and pain rushing at him.

Khushi lay on the hard cement in a crumpled heap.

He rushed to her side and fell to his knees before her, sliding his hands over her body to ascertain if she had broken any bones.

When he didn’t feel any obvious fractures, he gathered her up, visions of Khushi’s cold body haunting  him as he pulled her against his chest.

“Please...Khushi...” he murmured into the soft, sweet scent of her tangled hair. ..“Please.”

“Arnav...ji...” she groaned as her fingers came up to clutch the lapel of his jacket…

He grabbed her hand and kissed it as he held her closer…

Her voice went weak as she continued to mumble his name as well as nonsensical ramblings, but Arnav didn’t care.

She was alive.

"Mr. Raizada!"

Arnav looked up at the chief of police…

"What…?"

Arnav glared fiercely into the man's eyes…"Shyam is here. With others. I'm taking my wife away from here."

"Sir we can call for…"

"Get the FUCK out of my way!" he screamed as carefully lifted her up in his arms and hurried towards his car…

Police were spreading out around the area as he rushed towards his car…

He heard footsteps behind them and ducked around the corner into a darkened alleyway.

"Arna-"

"Shhhh…." he held her tightly as he whispered against her cheek…"Shhhhh sweetheart…."

He had to get her to safety…

He had to get her home…

He had to call a doctor…

As Arnav heard her labored breathing, he hoped that anyone who had been behind them had now gone…

Quietly peering out, he strode to his car and reclined the front seat to lay her down…

"Ok, Khushi...we're in the car...our car...we're safe...just lay still…"

As he moved his arm out from underneath her, she moaned in pain…

His head was throbbing…"Shhhh...It's alright...you'll be alright…"

Speedily rushing to the driver seat, he started the car and drove as fast as he could, trying to keep the journey smooth…

He pushed his handsfree into his ear and called Anjali …

Keeping one hand resting on Khushi's stomach, he quickly demanded his sister to make sure that a doctor be present as soon as they arrived home…

Ending the call, he spoke as calmly as he could…"It's alright...You'll be fine...I promise…we're almost home…"

He glanced at her and saw her eyes closed…"Khushi!"

Her eyes sprung open as she answered him with a groan…

"Khushi, just stay awake for me...please...please...don't focus on the pain...just listen to me...we're nearly home...a few minutes…"

She had hardly said anything…

Only mumbling a few things…

Praying her injuries weren’t severe, Arnav pulled into their driveway…

Escorts of security instantly met with them…

The car filled with light from the front of the house…

"Arnav...ji...” she murmured and it seemed her voice was clearer now... “Arnavji?...”

Opening her door he stroked her hair aside and felt the wet stickiness of blood coat his fingers.

Pushing his horror down deep, he smiled and hoped she couldn’t see his terror…

“We're home...” he soothed. “I’m here. You’re fine. You’ll be fine. Di has called a doctor...”

“Arnavji...I...I'm...in...pain...”  it was clear that each and every word was a struggle for her to form.

Lifting her as though she were about to break, he looked into her chocolate eyes, made even darker by pain and the force of the blow to her head.

“I'm taking you inside…"  he tried to remain calm as swarms of security walked beside them…

"Oh my God! Khushiji!"

Hearing Anjali's cry, Khushi tried to hold her head up, but the overwhelming nausea and dizziness that wracked her made it difficult to do anything but lie in Arnav’s strong embrace.

She hardly remembered her fall.

One moment she was watching in horror as Arnav  was about to be shot...

The next she’d been in Arnav's arms, the world spinning around her.

"Ar...Arnavji...Are you hurt? He . . . fought you.”

Forming words was so hard.

“Khushi, please, calm yourself. I’m uninjured, unlike you.” Arnav brushed her temple and she winced as a flash of brilliant pain cut through her body.

“But—”

He shook his head, his lips thinned into a firm line.

“We shall talk about it once you’ve seen the doctor.”

Khushi heard Anjali and Payal begin to question Arnav…

She tried earnestly to listen, only to have the shrill sounds ring in her ears…

Khushi groaned.

"I'm taking her to our room...bring the doctor up…"

Arnav carried her up to their room as if she weighed nothing and placed her gently onto their bed…

She had no energy left…
