FF : Take What's Left Of My Heart Part 28






When khushi began to wake, she saw Arnav fast asleep on the couch beside her…

His hair was tangled and drooping over his forehead…

As she sat up, her body began to ache deliciously…

She smiled softly and wondered how he slept so still when she was so 'kicky'…

Carefully, she took his laptop off the armrest, and placed it on the table…

But before she could close the lid, something caught her eye…

An email that suddenly extinguished every last shred of happiness that she had inside her…



Aman,

Here is the money for her fake passports, ID, etc.
I need to get her out of the way.
Out of the country.
I don't care where.
You take care of details.
I have to go now and pretend I care about this girl.

Account - 10233 483922
Account Name - Arnav Singh Raizada


"Arnavji…?...no..."

Khushi went numb.

Glued to where she stood.

"No...No there must be some mistake...No...no…"

Her heart felt as though it was breaking as much as it was hurting…

Not wanting to believe what she read, she mentally decided to go back to the email and reread, but before she could, a voice stopped her…

"Khushi…?"

Hearing him, she lost her footing and fell backwards…

Arnav hurried towards her and caught her just in time…
 
"Whoa...calm down, it's just me…" the smile in his voice faded when he saw that her eyes were shut tight…"Khushi?"

Her body was rigid as he held her…

Frowning, Arnav assumed that she may still be angry with him…

"Khushi...come on, after last night, you really want to be mad at me still?"

Not knowing how to act, she slowly opened her eyes and decided to play it cool…

"There's my beautiful wife…" he whispered as her eyelids flickered up…

"I...I'm not mad…" she murmured hastily

Arnav smiled…"I didn't think so…"

He leaned in and touched his mouth to hers…

Khushi tried, tried hard to relax, but even she knew that Arnav would be able to sense her discomfort.

And he did.

The minute his lips brushed hers, he paused.

Keeping their mouths close, he gripped her slightly tighter…

She had that "fight or flight" presence radiating from her…

Holding her close, he tried to keep calm…

"Khushi…?" His voice was a low growl…

Her lips trembled…

"Are you alright?"

Arnav felt the shiver that shuddered through her at his question…

Withdrawing another inch, he studied her face…

She was frowning, her brows wrinkled up…

Her lips were pressed together hard…

"Khushi…" panic surged inside him…"Did I hurt you last night? Talk to me!"

She shook her head, but still couldn't respond.

Arnav shook her gently…"What is wrong then!? TALK TO ME! WHAT HAS FRIGHTENED YOU SO MUCH!?"

As her eyes opened, he saw that distrust had worked it's way back into her heart…

"Khushi...I love you...I'm not angry at you...I'm not going to hurt you…can you please tell me what has scared you?"

She stayed quiet, but he saw her eyes flicker to something beside him…

He looked to the right and searched his surroundings…

Finally his eyes rested on the laptop…

Squinting, he tried to focus what was on the screen…

It was then that he saw the email that Rishab had sent.

Late after their live chat, he had sent Arnav all the previous emails that Aman had received, and of all the ones she had to see, Khushi had seen this one.

One that could incriminate him.

"Shit." he grunted…

She began to shake with fear and he hurriedly turned back to her…

"Khushi...listen carefully…"

But she was already trying to get away from him…

Not wanting to spook her more, he let her slip out of his embrace …

His eyes stayed on her as she clamoured back, sat on the floor with her back against the bed, pulling the bed sheet tight around her naked body…

"Khushi, will you-"

"...please...please explain...I...I don't want to believe this…"

Arnav was overjoyed to hear her interrupt him by saying that…

He began to reach back, "Just let…"

Her eyes widened…"What are you doing?!"

"God...Khushi please don't be scared of me...I'm just getting my laptop...okay?"

She nodded and tried not to shiver as he slid across the floor and sat beside her…

Legs stretched out, he rested his laptop on his thighs…

"Look, I want to show you everything here okay?"

She nodded again…

"I didn't get to tell you about the phone call yesterday…and I also had Rishab email me more last night…just give me time to explain…"

Khushi listened.

She didn't say a word.

She didn't WANT to say a word.

All she could do was listen, read and try to understand.

When it came time to explain the email she saw, every word he said began to piece her heart back together…

He went into acute detail to try and prove his innocence, but she didn't need that.

As he spoke, she saw the injustice.

Her mind was overflowing with thoughts…"Nani!? She wouldn't … I know she wouldn't…"

But she also knew, that someone WAS trying, and nearly succeeding, to break them apart.

Even though he was still midspeech, a loud sob escaped her throat as she threw herself into his arms…

His computer tumbled off his lap as he gathered her into his arms, holding her close to his heart like a frightened child…

Relief, hurt, and pain thrummed through her heavy limbs…

She tried to get closer and closer to him, even though he tried to soothe her, his hands smoothing over her body…

"Shhhh...Khushi…"

"I...I…" her voice was muffled against his chest…

He caught her under the chin with his thumb and finger, lifting her face until she looked into his eyes…

"I love you…" he whispered, and then pressed a kiss to her forehead…

She saw his love shining from his eyes…

Her heart twisted…

All defenses crumbled…

"I...I didn't...didn't want to b...believe it…"

His dark eyes softened even more…"I love you…" 

"I'm sorry...I'm so stupid…"

"You are NOT stupid, Khushi!" his voice was stern as he carefully thumbed a lock of her hair away from her cheek…

She bit her bottom lip as Arnav gathered her closer, his fingers trailed down her neck and over her shoulders…

"Look, how about I get some food brought up, and we can just have a relaxing morning in bed...together…"

Khushi still looked apprehensive when her eyes met his…

"And you can ask me all the questions you like, we can even call Rishab and he can explain things too…"

He tried to calm his own breathing as he could see her thinking…

Finally she nodded, "O...Okay…"

He smiled and kissed her forehead…"Great, l'll phone up for some breakfast…"

Khushi remained seated as Arnav stood up…

She saw him reach out his hand, and even though her heart was thudding, she held onto him as he pulled her up against his chest…

Arnav was furious.

He released her hand gently as she wandered into the bathroom to shower…

When the door shut, he grabbed his phone…

As soon as Rishab answered, he was yelling…"Why the HELL did she have to read THAT email!?"

"what…? WHAT!? Please don't tell me that Khushi saw…"

"YES! And she was already completely wild from last night!"

Rishab sighed, "Arnav, I am sorry… do you want me to come over, explain things to her?"

Arnav rested his head in his hand…"Yeah...I told her that we could call you, but...I'd prefer she hear it from you…maybe if you come around in a few hours?"

"Sure. Anything to help."

The call ended.

Picking up the hotel phone, he phoned out for a delivery of everything on the breakfast menu.

When he hung up, he heard the shower turn off…

More than anything, he wanted to go in and join her, help her dry off, help her dress…

Or just completely distract her…

But her emotions were delicate once more…

"Bloody hell…" he growled…"Nani, I swear if YOU have caused all this…"

Khushi opened the door, and Arnav's eyes instantly were drawn to her...

Her hair was damp, her face flushed…

His lips broke into a smile when he saw what she was wearing.

A pair of oversized hotel embroidered pajamas…

"What's so funny!?" she demanded...

Arnav walked forwards and shook his head…"nothing...you look so damn cute…"

Khushi was moving backwards, but felt her stomach flip as he got closer…

Just as he was about to touch her, they both heard 4 loud knocks on the door.

"That would be room service…"

Khushi grinned…"Saved by the 'knocks'"

Arnav laughed as he gave her a heated look and walked away to answer the door…

When he opened it, he came face to face with three tall, muscled men.

His instincts kicked in and he tried to slam the door, but it was roughly kicked in…

He turned to Khushi…"GET IN THE BATHROOM!!!!! LOCK THE DOOR!!!!!"

Khushi rushed towards the bathroom, but she was instantly trapped by another tall man.

The other two men were now attacking Arnav.

He was being hit even though he constantly tried to get closer to Khushi…

Her eyes darted from the man in front of her, to her husband…

Arnav yelled out…"Leave her the fuck alone! I swear I will…"

The two men that were apprehending Arnav knocked him to the ground, then pulled him to his feet, holding him back, far away from any chance of reaching her…

He was struggling like mad, trying to break free…"Don't you DARE touch her!!!"

Khushi quickly tried to side step the brute, but he ended up slamming his palm over her throat and pushing her up against the wall…

His hand closed down hard over her windpipe and she started to wheeze…

Arnav's eyes widened as his body was gripped with utter terror ….

He began to fight like a madman…

But the two men were imprisoning him, and he could do nothing but watch his wife be strangled…

She was blinking furiously, her feet kicking and pushing against the wall, but to no avail…

Khushi saw the disgusting man lean in, "What's wrong? You aren't enjoying this?!"

Her insides were churning, making her feel sick and light headed…

She was getting redder, as blood was trying to rush through her throat…

"LET HER GO!!!!!!!!!!!" Arnav screamed…"I'M BEGGING YOU! YOU CAN DO WHAT YOU LIKE TO ME! JUST LET HER GO!!!!!"

One man who was holding Arnav started to speak…"Have fun watching your wife suffer...I can tell you that she will...first, she will buck and kick, like she's doing now...then she will start to change color...oh wait, she's doing that now too...then she'll choke and strangle...her neck will begin to burn, her lungs will feel like they will explode, her eyes will sting, and then…"

Arnav's heart was striking inside him…

"NO!" he roared…

Khushi's eyes were losing focus as she tried to fight her way free…

"And isn't it sad…"

Arnav could listen to no more!

He was roaring over and over that they release her, but all the men did was laugh…

Khushi's shoulders burned with pain as she started to lose her strength…

Arnav was going mad, his body was producing more adrenalin than he had ever felt…

"LET HER GO!!!!!!!!" he snarled once again…

The man holding onto Khushi's neck looked back at Arnav…"I will…in five seconds..."

Arnav slammed his body from side to side, roughly pushing the men off balance…

The violence he felt tearing through his body wasn't nearly as frightening as the raging need to save Khushi…

A loud bang suddenly rang out and Police began swarming into the room…

The last thing that Khushi heard was Arnav's primal roar and then her vision went black…

Arnav was finally free as the police rushed in...

Instantly, he lunged towards the man who held Khushi and didn't stop moving until his fist slammed into the man's face…

Savagely wrenching him away from his wife, he staggered to catch her as she fell to the ground…

Not caring about what went on behind him, he dropped to her side…

His hands roamed over her lifeless body…

Panic surged as he could not locate her pulse…

"Oh my God…" he breathed…"No...No was I too late?!"
 
Grabbing her shoulders, he shook her...

"NO!!!! DAMN IT KHUSHI BREATHE!!!!!!!!!!!"

Dragging her onto his lap, he patted her tear-stained cheek…"KHUSHI!!!!!! BREATHE!!!!!!!!"

Grief welled up so hard and fast inside him that he wanted to vomit…"Khushi…" he could hardly speak…"Khushi...I'm sorry...I'm so sorry...please…. Please my sweetheart...breathe...I'm telling you to BREATHE damn it!!!!!!!!"










PRECAP - 



Arnav stepped off the plane.

He could smell the sea salt in the air...


And although the breeze was warm, although the sun was hot, his skin still felt chilled...

He was still in denial...

He was still in shock...

  8. Okay so what happened here...,?!?!?!?!

    Khushi gets up to see Arnav , her sexy husband, sleeping on the couch, in his own sexy way. Hair totally messed up *nindy daydreams moving fingers thru that mop**sigh*.

    Khushi gets up from the bed to remove laptop. But What The !!! Whats the message on the screen ?!?!? Mr. Bond wants to get Rid of Her !!!! Mr. Bond how can you this ? I thought you were till the earth's core in love with Khushi ? What the hell is happening ? How could a message like this be sent to Aman ?!?! ' fake passport, fake id etc , money, will pretend ' ! NO...NO..NO...this cant be the truth ! Is it !!!!??!

    However sexy Mr. Bond may be , in such a situation even his charms wont work and didnt work, which he realized when he got up and kissed Khushi. Mr. Bond felt as though he was kissing a wall. Kissing a Wall ! and only then did he realize, that something was wrong, something had happened, something was amiss here. Mr. Bond looked at khushi's face, well what other kind of Expression would he see on Khushi's face !?? Withdrawal Symptoms ! Heart break !

    Realization struck *thank god* Khushi had read the message on his laptop screen ! Damn...Damn...Damn..how will Mr. Bond explain himself. How will he explain to Khushi that all what is happening and the situation they both are in is all because of one person...NANI !!!

    After slowly explaining the whole thing to Khushi, Mr. Bond enters the bathroom and blasts Rishabh !! Whats Rishabh's fault here now !? Ok.. So Mr. Bond just got hyper and nearly blasted him telling him that Khushi had read the message and he had to come to also explain to her the hard reality. Why on earth did Mr. Bond order everything on the menu to room service and that too , from the Bathroom ! Didnt get any better place or what ? Awwww...my Mr. Bond is restless, hyper *pats his back calming him down*

    *Devilish naughty Grin* He sees a cute looking Khushi in the hotel's oversized pajama. Seeing this obviously Mr. Bond starts his usual prowl with a sexy smirk towards her. (wish it was me in that pajama with Arnav walking towards me) *sigh* ......

    Door knocks. Oh yah the Room service guy must be . Mr. Bond shocked on opening the door ! 3 muscled huge men !!! What, Khushi run into the bathroom ! But only to be stopped by one of the men and the other two struggling to hold on to Mr. Bond !

    What is it with these guys ! Who are they ? From where have they come out of the blue !!!??!! WHY being the biggest question ?! I could really feel the desparation, anger and fear in Mr. Bond's voice when he was struggling to free himself, so that he could somehow stop the third man from Strangling His Khushi to death !

    Thank-god for the cops who reached in time to arrest the men. Well i guess this happened because there were cameras near Mr. Bond's room for security sake ! Rishabh also reached at the same time. Only KHUSHI, Only KHUSHI was Mr. Bond's concern, he thought she was dead after seeing her limp body near the wall. All he could feel was Fear.. Khushi get up..breathe Khushi..breathe..get up.. Khushi breathe Damn it ! I am sorry.. I am here... , Is all he could say and think at the very time.

    Feel really sorry for Mr. Bond and Khushi. *sad sigh*. why do they have to go through a similar drill every now and then ! But happy about one thing.. Khushi still loved my Mr. Bond and believed in him!

    Late commenting this, but was very funny! Khushi wondered how come Mr. Bond could sleep so still after an eventful night and she felt 'KICKY'....god that was hilarious...KICKY...ROTFL !!!!!

    Sarah...did Nani or Shyam come to know where Khushi and Mr. Bond were staying ? Another thing.. Did they have anything to do with the goons whom Arnav had scared off with the gun ! This thought came because the guy holding Khushi said " your wife " and didnt take her name ?! *nindy's thinking cap on*
