Kishore Gupta was in awe of the man standing in front of him. To say he was stunned to meet ASR was an understatement. Once he came out of his trance he started worrying wondering if ASR had found out anything about their plan or involvement but was assured as soon as he saw him extending his arm for a hand shake. Kishore shook his hands throughly before speaking in a high voice “Mr raizada, it is such an honor to meet you, your company is a legend in our industry. Please tell me what i can do for you.” Arnav smirked before answering “What? You are not angry with me for accusing your brother and his daughter? I thought your entire family will be fuming at me”
Kishore was flustered by his question, but sheena spoke up before her father bungled anything up “Mr Raizada, such a pleasure to meet you in person” she purred “I have heard soo much about you. I am Sheena gupta by the way, his daughter” Sheena said extending her arm with her palm upturned. Arnav brushed a kiss on her hands “Charmed” he said in the most sexy way he could.
Now it was time for Sheena to get all flustered. The slight brush of his lips on her hand gave her butterflies in her stomach. She was never affected by anyone like this before. He was the perfect specimen of male gorgeousness and his money and power made him extra attractive. Sheena gave him a seductive glance as she slowly ran her tongue over her lips. She saw something odd pass in his eyes but he quickly smiled at her and turned towards her father “Well Mr Gupta? Maybe you'd like to finish your questioning first, then we can talk. I'll be waiting for you in my car outside” Saying this he turned on his heels and walked away leaving Kishore and Sheena staring at him, one with awe the other with lust.
Mr Shetty unlocked the door to the gupta's waiting room and stepped inside. He looked at the three figures hunched up against the central table. He turned towards mr Gupta and said in an authoritative voice “Mr Gupta, i regret to inform you that the court proceedings have been postponed till tomorrow. Unfortunately we cannot get through to Ms Seth, and without her we cannot present your case. Even though Mr Raizada was insisting on giving his statement for both charges, we cannot take his word for the first one since the main accuser was Ms Seth. The good news is that if your lawyer gets your bail done then you can go home today, but you will be under house arrest.
Shashi gupta was furious, he had never felt such rage for anyone “I cannot believe that Sonofab***h! If he ever comes in front of me i'll shoot him right between the eyes” Khushi leapt forward to calm her father, she was tired and weary trying to keep up pretenses, she just hoped that arnav was handling the next part of the plan. “Papa, please calm down. Just be positive ok.” Shashi gupta looked at his only daughter “Positive! What are you made of Khushi! Don't you see the kind of web this guy has woven around us! Thank God for my brother, if we are to be free of this it will be only because of him”
Mr Shetty came forward, Oh boy he thought this was going to be a toughie, but it had to be done. He looked at Khushi uneasily and she understood right away what he wanted to say. She hesitated but nodded her head in a yes. Mr Shetty went forward and kept his hands on mr gupta's shoulder “I have some bad new regarding your brother and his daughter Sheena.” Shahi got up instantly “What! Is everything ok? Are they ok? Did anything happen to them”
Mr Shetty felt pity for the poor man in front of him and anger for his pitiful brother. He took a deep breath and said in a heavy voice “Mr Kishore gupta and his daughter Sheena denied everything. In their statement they said that Khushi was always the project leader and she was the one to change the quotes, not them. Mr Kishore also said that he had suspected foul play and was quite sure about the bribing incident of VBR group, he further added that he believes that you may have helped Khushi with the new quotes by getting them off Ms Seth since you wanted Khushi to succeed by hook or crook in her first large project. I am sorry Mr Gupta but their statement further pushes you and Ms gupta towards conviction.”
Khushi looked at her fathers shocked face she felt he was dying a little with every syllable that Mr Shetty spoke. She held on to her fathers left side as her mother supported his right. She could feel her father trembling beneath his heavy suit. She held his face sideways and hugged him hard as the word spoken by Mr Shetty made sharp dents all over her father heart. She felt tears sliding on his face and dripping on to her hands. No words could be spoken to lessen the deep hurt and disbelief she saw in her father eyes “This cannot happen...no this is not right....i'm sure they are being threatened or something...no...no...NO! Kishore will never do this to me....NEVER!” Garima came forward and hugged her husband tightly as Khushi let go of him. He sobbed his heart out in his wife's arms. Both her parents looked dejected and scarred after hearing this news. Khushi closed her eyes and let her tears flow freely. At last the truth was out. And it hurt.
Arnav sat in his car holding the steering wheel tightly. He could not believe that he maintained a cordial behavior in front of Kishore gupta and that sheena. He felt sick thinking about the way he kissed her hands. He knew it was necessary but all he could feel was disgust for the pair, even while talking to them he wanted to rip both of them apart, especially Sheena, he kept remembering Khushi's narration of how she had tried to kill her years ago. He wanted to punish them for all the pain they put khushi through. He looked out of his car window and saw both of them heading towards him, he took a deep breath and waited for them.
Kishore and Sheena looked around for ASR's car, they spotted a beautiful Bentley parked right outside the building; as if on cue Arnav rolled down the window and motioned them to come. They both scampered towards his car as he opened the door for Kishore to get in, but instead of Kishore Sheena sided into the passenger seat next to arnav while Kishore sat at the back. They both looked at him expectantly as Arnav locked the car and spoke “So, you both must be wondering what i want to talk to you about right? But before that do tell me what you said to the officials to prove your brother innocence, because trust me whatever you do, i'll make sure he and his daughter pay for their deeds”
Sheena inched closer towards arnav, he smelled divine, his cologne making her go wild. She really had never felt this pull towards anyone before. She lightly touched his shoulders to make him look towards her “ASR, why do you think we supported the father-daughter duo! We already knew that they are responsible for this foul game. Trust me when i say that they are done for! They will get what they deserve, there is no way in hell they will come out of this.”
Arnav felt like slapping her across her face for abusing them so, but he kept his emotions in control and gave her a tight smile “Well Sheena, in that case we should celebrate! I am glad that you and your father are sliding with the honest truth. Now that we are clear on this, let me tell you about my offer”
Kishore leaned in eagerly, arnav looked at both of them before carefully forming his words “Well, as you know i was in talks with your brother about a joint venture regarding our two companies. We wanted to work on boutique style resorts in India, which would be world class and offer the best holistic holiday destination. We had a proposal drawn up on similar lines before this entire fiasco happened.”
Kishore was surprised about this since Shashi had never mentioned it to him, but then his brother had not included him in many core decisions, he looked at arnav and urged him to continue, a strange excitement had started building up inside him “ Now, some of our investors may have got a wind of this and fortunately for my company our stocks shot up two months ago owing to this news. I don't know how it got leaked but it did, but my problem now is that, though our stocks have been consistent, i am afraid that if this news of your brothers betrayal makes the media and it eventually will, not only my but your company stocks will also fall leading to a huge financial loss for both is us”
Kishore nodded in agreement, arnav felt like his story was going the right way, he continued confidently “My proposal is that we go ahead with the joint venture and sign the contract as soon as possible. In fact your board of directors already know about it and as a matter of fact it was supposed to be signed today during their meet. I find it very strange that your brother had to go and do this foolishness when both our companies would have benefitted from this deal” Arnav quickly glanced at both of them and saw them thinking about it, he just hoped that they would fall for it.
Khushi was just finishing her food when their door opened and Mr Shetty walked in with the commissioner. They both stood inside the room and addressed her father “Mr Gupta, your lawyer has successfully managed to get your bail done against all odds, we are letting you go home today. But as Shetty told you earlier, you will be under house arrest. He along with some more people will be posted outside your house. You will be bought directly to court tomorrow.” Khushi felt elated that they could go home. She could not bear to see her father suffer another day in this place. She saw happily as her father got up slowly and faced the two men “It really doesn't matter where i stay now, i feel like my entire life was a lie! My own brother turned against me. I don't even feel the need to live anymore let alone get out of this place” Khushi went and side hugged her father “Papa, please don't say this. I know you are hurting but i told you that we should remain positive. Please papa for me, lets go home” Shashi looked sadly at his daughter and gave her a watery smile, he nodded his head as Khushi walked out with him along with the two men.
Kishore and Sheena looked at each other, they both knew that what ASR was proposing was a once in a lifetime thing! They could just imagine the benefits they would get by this unique venture, nothing could stop them from getting to the top! Kishore turned towards arnav and said very politely but his voice could not hide his excitement “ASR, i think sheena and I should discuss this more. We can postpone the board meeting for tomorrow, plus since Shashi and Khushi are both in for treason to the company, they will be voted out by the board. That would leave me to undertake the responsibility completely. You do understand that we require some time to decide”
Arnav expected this answer from them, he smirked inwardly and answered “Sure Mr Gupta, if you can postpone the board meeting for tomorrow, we can take this decision and sign the contract then. But do remember i cannot delay it further than that, there are many other companies who keep approaching me and i can't risk my stocks plummeting. Hope you understand”
Kishore who was sweating nodded his head and promised arnav that he will call him in the morning to confirm, he thanked him one again and got out of the car, Sheena opened her door but leaned in once again towards arnav “So, didn't you say something about a celebration? We can tonight if your free.” She said seductively with an inviting look in her eyes, arnav leaned in and whispered in her ears “Its tempting, but i'll pass. I am sure you and your father have a lot to discuss. We can always celebrate tomorrow night” Sheena shivered as his breath caressed her cheek as he spoke, she could not wait till tomorrow. She bid him a good bye and got out of the car. As soon as they both left, Arnav called Mr Shetty.
It was quite late by the time, Khushi and her mother ate dinner. Her father had just slept after soothing and calming him down. Her uncle and Sheena had very obviously not come home instead opting to spend their night in their pent house at Malabar hill. He aunt had left for a weekend trip with her friends, but may be that was her way of coping with everything. The servants cleared the table as Khushi bid her mother a good-night. She quickly went sprinting to her room desperate to see if arnav had called her, she wondered why he had not called till now. She was afraid to call or text him in case he was still with her uncle and sheena.
The hot shower was doing wonders to her tired aching body. She felt wonderful as the water cascaded down her body relaxing her, she remembered her encounter with arnav in the day and went hot all over. Just the thought of him made her desire for him come to the forefront. She quickly got out of the shower and slipped into a short baby pink satin nightie. It fitted her like second skin. She just wished arnav was with her. She stepped out of her bathroom and headed straight to her phone checking if arnav had called. As she was keeping it back, the phone rang. Her disappointed face lit up as she saw arnav's number flashing on her screen. She picked it up and screamed into it “Now you get the time to call me! I can't believe you. I'm extremely angry arnav, you know how worried i was all day!” She got startled as she heard a voice say seductively in her ears “Well how come you don't look angry then”
Arnav was waiting for Khushi to come out of her shower since the past 15 minutes, how much time do these women take to shower he wondered. He chuckled thinking of how he came to her room, he checked with Mr Shetty if he could go in disguise as one of the ACB officials outside Khushi's house. It took a long time to convince him but eventually he came around. Arnav disguised himself by wearing a turban and beard. He waited till Khushi and her mother retired to their rooms, only then did her quietly walk in and slip into Khushi's room. How he found her room was another story! He wanted to surprise her when she came out of the shower, so he carefully removed the turban and beard was sitting quietly by the side table. But the hell he knew that the mesmerizing beauty who walked out would leave him stunned and surprised. He went instantly hard looking at her delectable body encased in the barely there silky night wear, her hair all damp was curling around her face while the sweet smell of jasmine filled the room as she walked in. He saw her sad face as she looked in her phone to check if he had called, he quickly took his phone out and dialed her number.
Khushi jumped as she heard arnav's voice in her ears, she spun around and came face to face with his smoldering eyes. In her shock she nearly fell but arnav's strong arms held her by her waist. Arnav took her phone from her hand and smiled at her stricken face “Surprised? I thought we'll continue where we left off” Khushi came out of her shocked state and pushed him away from her, how dare he think that she'll be fine when he did not call her all day “Where the hell were you?! Do you know how worried i was...i thought something happened to you. God only knows what my uncle and Sheena are capable of”
Arnav saw her concerned face and felt guilty “Sorry babe, i wanted to surprise you so i didn't call you earlier. If i knew that you would be so upset i swear i would have called you earlier.” Saying this he walked towards her but stopped when Khushi held her palm up “Wait! Arnav tell me what happened. I've been worried all day, How did it go with my uncle? Is our plan working”
Arnav went and sat on her bed “Ok, if you insist then listen, yes they fell for it khushi” He saw her face split into a 1000watt smile. What he wound't give to see her smile like that “They are considering the offer and have postponed the board meeting for tomorrow morning. I'm sure i'll get their call first thing in the morning”
Khushi ran to arnav and fell on him on the bed. She took his face in her hands and kissed him passionately, she was so very happy to hear this. She suddenly felt relaxed and stress free. She pulled back from her kissing to look lovingly at arnav, she was soo lucky to have him in her life she thought. Arnav was stunned to say the least “Whoa! If i knew this would have been your reaction, i would have told you the news as soon as i entered” He pulled her against him and started nuzzling her neck.
Khushi sighed against arnav's face on her neck, she craved his touch and feel like she craved air to breath. He kept on nibbling at her neck as his hands started gently sliding her thin straps down “So what did you think of Sheena? I mean lots of men are attracted to her” Arnav was so lost in her that he did not think before answering “oh yeah, she has those assets that men fall for, but if they knew how she is inside, they'll never go for her. Plus i'm still gagging from that kiss”
Khushi's eyes widened and a rage built in her as she heard arnav speak. She pushed at him and stood up from her bed. Arnav was slightly confused by her sudden change of mood, he was wondering what went wrong “You kissed her! How can you? After all that i've told you. You found her that attractive that you kissed her in your first meeting! Don't even dare tell me how you gagged!”
Arnav now realized what he had said “C'mon Khushi, its not like that. I did not kiss her, not on her face or anything. She darted her upturned hand towards me, what was i supposed to do! I had to kiss her on her hand” Arnav felt his heart twist as he saw angry tears threatening khushi's eyes. He got up and went towards her.
Khushi knew she was over-reacting but the thought of arnav with Sheena made her sick to her stomach. She felt this possessiveness towards arnav and her insecurities came to the forefront when she thought of Sheena trying her charms on him. She shivered as arnav came and held her tenderly against him.
“Khushi, i understand what you are thinking, but i'm not some boy in ninth grade. I love you Khushi with all my heart and if sheena were the last person on earth i would not touch her. I hate her for what she has done to you. You may still want to redeem her since you are related to her, but i will always hate her since i have no connection to her. Don't ever think that sheena or for that matter anyone could every come between us. I love you and that is final”
Khushi felt her body lean completely against arnav as his words soothed her paining heart. She knew he loved her just like she loved him, passionately, wildly, completely. She tightened her embrace and felt goosebumps on her arms as arnav trailed his hands over them. She tilted her head back to look into his eyes, she saw all the love and devotion he felt for her shine through his molten chocolate eyes, she moaned as she felt his mouth descend slowly towards hers.
Arnav poured his entire love into their kiss, he knew that she needed assurance after all she had been through, he seductively pulled her lower lip in his mouth and sucked on it till she moaned his name, his tongue tangled with her hot sweet one as he deepened the kiss further. He once again slowly slid her straps off her , to leave her neck and shoulders bare for him. He shifted his hot demanding mouth to her neck and and slowly licked his way up to her ears, he whispered in a slow sexy voice “You are mine Khushi as i am yours. I can't stay away from you for even a second my love”
Khushi felt herself melting against the assault his mouth created on her senses, she wound her arms around his neck and splayed her hands in his thick hair, she pulled him tightly to her as her body arched to meet his. She felt his hard arousal against her quivering stomach and felt that restless ache start between her legs.Arnav quickly picked her up in his arms as she rested her head against his chest. He carried her to the bed and laid her down gently on it.
Khushi unbuttoned his shirt as fast as her trembling hands could, she wanted to feel his skin against hers, she moaned as arnav deftly unzipped her nighty and pulled it completely off her. She only had her lacy pink panties on. He helped her take off his shirt as he covered her body with his own, kissing her fiercely, hungrily, his tongue mating with hers and his weight pining her down to the mattress.
She wanted him closer. She opened her legs and wrapped them around his waist. She felt the length of his erection press against her centre. She wriggled beneath him making arnav groan deeply in his throat, he impatiently clamped his mouth on one of her breasts. she cried out arching her back as his tongue circled one nipple while he caressed the other with his deft fingers, stroking them until she was desperate and wet.
He kissed her between her breasts and lower, finally circling his tongue over her belly button, dipping it in and out, khushi moaned with the immense pleasure she was feeling, she wanted him now, she could not wait any further. She quickly pulled his belt and undid his pants, arnav could feel her urgency and knew that he too could not wait any longer to be buried in her. She took off all his clothing and then slowly divested her of the last scrap of lace adorning her gorgeous body.
He looked at her tenderly and kissed her palm as she opened her legs for him, she felt his hard arousal teasing her center as he hovered right at her entrance, she held his face with one hand and leaned in to kiss him as he quickly thrust into her tight hot sheath, She held onto him tightly as he slid in and out, she felt shock every time he found her center. When the pressure started to build she moved beneath him, restless and agitated, arnav's jaw tightened as his thrusts became harder, faster.
Khushi screamed in pleasure as her body spasmed and then fluttered around him, he called out her name and thrust once more before bringing his mouth down on hers as he pulsed inside her. They both held each other tightly as their shudders subsided. Khushi's body was still humming as arnav eased out of her. He pulled her close and she rested her head against his chest. She felt such joy being with him that it was overwhelming her. His arms around her tightened as she whispered against his chest “Stay with me tonight, please don't go” Arnav pulled the covers over them and kissed her lightly on her forehead “I'll never leave you sweetheart. Sleep now, we have a very important day tomorrow” with that they both slept blissfully against the sound of each others heartbeats.
