She had heard about this Tanu before. Tanu is his childhood friend who is now a model. She even had proposed Abhi. But Abhi clearly stated to her that he have no feelings of love towards her. His feelings towards her is completely based on the friendship they have since childhood.
All this was told by him in an interview. Remembering that she picked up the call.
Tanu “Hello Honey! How are you?”
“HONEY??” She thought furiously.
“He is taking his shower.” She replied trying to control her anger.
Tanu “Oh…Is he going out of town today?”
How does she know that!! He should have informed her for sure.
“Yes…he is going for some ad shoot.” She replied.
Tanu “I think I have an idea of what shoot he is going for even though he never informed me.”
Liar…he would have informed her. Just to make me feel jealous she is saying like this.
Tanu “By the way I am Tanu, Abhi’s friend. Would be his wife if he had not rejected my proposal.”
“Okay…” She responded.
Tanu “Just ok? What’s your name?”
Her mind voice, What’s the point of telling you my name? My husband itself don’t know my name yet!
When she was about to tell her name, Abhi came out of the bathroom.
He was wearing a tshirt and track pants.
Abhi “Why are you holding my phone??”
“Call for you…from Tanu…” She said softly.
“Honey bee!!” He exclaimed making her look with irritation.
He took the phone from her and was talking with Tanu with full of excitement.
What’s with this Honey and Honey bee. It’s irritating. Why can’t they call each other by name. I only know husband and wife call each other HONEY. But here his friend is calling him Honey. The only relief is
He is not calling her as Honey. But I still don’t like him calling her as Honey bee.
Finally he ended the call and looked at her.
Abhi “Tanu is kind of irritating na?”
Hearing that she looked back at Abhi in surprise.
Abhi “She actually called not to talk but to make u jealous.”
“Is it?” She asked.
Abhi “Ya…she still have some feelings for me…”
“She still have some feelings means?” She asked.
Abhi “She loves me but I am not interested in her.”
“But you still talk to her?” She asked curiously.
Abhi “After all she is still my friend whom I know from my childhood. I respect her for that.”
That’s very sweet of him. Even though he finds her irritating, he still talks to her jovially.
She was smiling widely thinking of his good nature.
Abhi “You always like to smile ah?”
She was still smiling. Abhi looks at her strangely.
Abhi, Oh no. Did she became like a smiling statue?
Abhi sprinkles water on her face which makes her stop smiling.
She looks at him furiously. Abhi laughed seeing her face. It looked hilarious to him when she is in anger.
“What was that? Is this the way u treat me?” She asked wiping her face with cloth.
Abhi “I am finding you funny!!”
She was too angry to speak instead was breathing heavily.
Abhi also acted like her which made her anger even worse.
“Stop it!!!” She screamed making Abhi jerked.
Abhi covering her mouth “Silent! What if my Ma hears you? She would think I am torturing you chasmish!”
She calmed herself down but was still angry at him.
Abhi “Chasmish, you gotta control your anger if not you’ll have high BP!”
“Stop calling me Chasmish…” She said
Abhi “Why? Isn’t it a nice name rather than calling u girl?” He asked in a teasing way.
“I am not talking to you. Bye!” She said leaving the room by slamming the door.
Abhi “This much of anger towards a rock star? This is not at all good.”
He was still wondering where was she heading to.
After a few hours,
Abhi had packed his stuff. He was ready to leave but she was not around.
Abhi, Looks like she is still angry on me. Alright, let me call her later.
He bid bye to his mother. His eyes scanned through for her. His Ma said she went out to buy something.
Abhi was about to get into the car when she came back.
Abhi “Hello Chasmish! What did u went to buy?”
She passed him the bag. Abhi “Trip gift ah?” He said trying to open the bag.
“No…it’s what u need. Take a look at in car.” She replied in a monotonous tone.
Abhi “Come on chasmish, why are u very angry? You know I don’t like girls to be angry on me.”
Suddenly she hugged him saying “Your Ma wants me to hug you….she is looking at us.” She said smilingly.
Abhi was taken aback by the sudden hug before he could react further she placed a light kiss on his cheek saying take care.
Abhi with his eyes widened looked back her with shock.
She signalled him through her eyes to get inside the car. He was still standing there like a statue.
She cleared her throat making him back to senses.
Abhi “Err…bye..take care too.” He quickly got inside the car without having any eye contact with her.
“He is looking very cute in confusion.” She thought by waving her hand as a bye to him.
Soon he left while Supriya was looking at all this with amazement.
Supriya “Is he ok with u?”
“Yes auntyji. Didn’t u see he is fine with my hug & kiss to him?” Supriya “Yes but….”
“I am going to meet him later too. Purab is coming to pick me up.” Supriya “Why? Why didn’t u leave with Abhi just now?”
“I could have auntyji…but I want to give him a sweet shock.”
Supriya smiled at her bahu’s actions. She believed very soon she will bring changes in him.
Abhi, What was that? She hugged! She kissed!! Wasn’t she supposed to ignore me in anger?
He was getting flashes of her hug & kiss again which made him feel puzzled.
Abhi, Oh ya…she told na, my Ma was there so she had to act being more affectionate. In a few days after marriage, I am leaving her. Technically it means she have to miss me badly. That’s how this hug & kiss comes out.
He saw the bag beside him. He opened it to see what was in it.
Abhi, It’s a portable charger! How did she know mine is spoiled? She is so smart yaar…I like it.
Upon reaching the hotel, he was too tired to do anything so he crashed onto the bed. By the time he woke up it was time for dinner.
He freshened up himself & left his room to have his dinner.
Abhi, Surely there will be no peace fries here. Feel like eating it now.
Waiter “Sir, what would you like to have?” Abhi ordered a light dish.
Abhi using his phone was waiting for his dinner to arrive. It arrived & he ate heartily. In a while, the waiter came with another plate closed with the cover.
Abhi “I only ordered all this.” Waiter with a smile “This is complimentary sir…”
He placed it on the table by clearing the plates that Abhi had already completed his food.
Waiter uncover the new dish. Seeing it, Abhi’s eyes popped out in surprise.
Abhi exclaimed in a high voice “Peace fries!!!” People around him looked finding him amusing when he stood up & hugged the waiter.
Waiter was taken aback of his sudden gesture.
Abhi “Oh man! You made my day!” He sat down happily eating it. He was very full after his dinner but looking at his favourite peace fries, it never stopped him from attacking it.
Meanwhile, waiter moved from there smiling away.
Abhi burped loudly out of satisfaction of eating his favourite food.
Abhi, This is so good. I had such an wonderful meal.
Waiter “Sir..” Abhi “Yes my son…” He said in a matured tone.
Waiter looked puzzled at him. Abhi “I was just kidding. I am so happy that I feel I am like a father!”
Waiter chuckled hearing it. In response, Abhi frowned at him.
Abhi “It’s not funny.” Waiter “Sorry sir…”
Abhi “Hey can I see the chef who cooks the complimentary dish.”
Waiter “Sir…it’s not possible…” Abhi “Why??” Waiter panicked. He was sweating profusely in nervousness.
Abhi “Chill man! Why you get tensed like this?” Waiter “I need to go sir…” Abhi “Bill?” Waiter “You can get it at the counter.”
Abhi smiled looking at the waiter almost running away in fear.
Abhi was heading towards the lift. He heard a familiar voice.
Abhi, Not again!!!
Tanu screeched “Honey!!”
Abhi turning back said “Yes Honey Bee.” What he didn’t expect was her sudden bone crushing hug.
Abhi “Woah! What kind of hug is this??” He asked breaking from the hug.
Tanu “What to do Honey? You never invited for your marriage. Do u know how bad I felt?”
Abhi “I know yaar…but you know it was a marriage done in a complete traditional way. If you were there u would have find it boring too.” Tanu “Does that mean you find your wedding boring?”
Abhi “Can say so…” Tanu “How about your marriage life then?”
Abhi was about to say when he saw her moving quickly out of the entrance with tears.
Abhi “I talk to you later Tanu.” Saying that he rushed towards the entrance.
Abhi yelled “Oye girl!!!” She never turned behind. She was walking as fast as she could.
Abhi, I am calling her & she is going as if she can’t hear me. It’s ok! I am not following her!
He stopped walking to see how far she goes ahead.
To his surprise, she also stopped walking. She was standing there wiping her tears with the back of her hands.
Abhi “Hey girl! What are you thinking of yourself? Do you think a rockstar like me can follow you madly this way?”
She was still not turning back to see him which irritated Abhi.
Abhi came in front of her & saw her eyes being red with heavy crying.
Abhi “Why are you crying until like this?” He asked tenderly.
She looked at him trying to compose herself.
Abhi “Wait! Did anyone here teased u? Come let’s go, I will ask why he or she did like that!!” He said firmly holding her hand.
She shook his head in denial. She even tried to get away from his grip.
Abhi screamed “Then why the hell are you crying!!!”
“You love Tanu right? Then why the hell did u marry me???” She asked back in anger.
Abhi “For this you are crying. Haan I love Tanu as a friend. Is that wrong?”
“Just as a friend?” She asked.
“Ya…” He sighed.
“Oh then ok!” She was back to normal with a wide smile.
Abhi “What is this? So all the while you were doing a drama?” He asked in shock as she smiling at him in a teasing way.
“I just need to be sure of your relation with her. So I had to…” She said looking down.
Abhi “You are not as demure as I thought of.”
She frowned hearing it.
“No wife will be demure when it comes to make his husband as hers.” She thought looking at him.
Abhi “I can read your eyes saying that you are telling something against my words.”
She closed her eyes immediately.
“How can he read my eyes!!!” She thought in shock.
Abhi chuckled seeing her reactions.
Abhi “But how did u end up here?”
She don’t know what to tell now as this was not part of her plan. She wanted to see him from a distance. But now….
Abhi snapped his finger to bring her back from her thoughts.
“Wo…regarding some work…” She stammered unable to finish her sentence.
Abhi “What work?” He asked firmly.
She looked at him with full of nervousness when he had to answer a call from his mobile phone.
Abhi answering the phone gestured her to follow him.
Oh god! Please make him not to ask that question again!
She was praying hard while following him to his room.
Abhi saw his room in a mess. He remembered it was not like this before he left.
She looking at it look back at him in shock.
“Did anyone entered your room?” She asked nervously.
“I don’t know but I think so…” He replied.
“Call the police! Call hotel manager!!!” She started to scream hysterically which made Abhi stared at her.
Realizing that she had overreacted, she remained silent.
Abhi “You are really very funny. At one moment you are very high & then low automatically. I wonder what kind of operating system you have…”
She looked around the room. She fumed in anger to find ladies innerwear on the couch.
Abhi looked at her direction & was shell shocked to see that.
He suddenly went out of the room. She also followed him.
Abhi “Err…it’s actually my room is beside this. I didn’t realize while coming in as I was on phone.”
She sighed in relief hearing him.
Abhi “But I don’t understand why the person of this room never lock the room. Silly girl, what if her belongings are lost?”
“Maybe she forgot to lock it up.” She answered.
Abhi “Let’s go to my room before she comes.” He said by pulling her with him.
She liked being pulled into his love. She was smiling as he closed the door.
Abhi “Again? You have started your smiling session?”
She nodded her head which made him feel she is cute.
Abhi “Now tell me why are you here?”
She was keep on looking around unable to answer him.
