When Sana was changing her clothes in the bathroom, her phone rang up which was kept on table. Sid picked it up. It was her father’s call.
“Hello Uncle.” He greeted him politely, putting the phone on his ear.
“Now I know, Sana is with you. So now I am tension free.” Ram said confidently, having full trust on Sid. He smiled knowing that at least her father trusts him.
“Where is she ? Can I talk to her ?” He asked him to give the phone to Sana. He thought for a moment and then answered.
“Uncle, she slept.” He lied because he didn’t want that Ram should come to know that Sana was drunk. He never used to lie, but he lied for her. He even felt guilty after lying.
“I know that you are lying.” He was scratching his forehead and he paused suddenly after listening to Ram’s words.
“I know that Sana is drunk.” Ram said making him confused. He was thinking that how did he know.
“Because she drank from my bottle.” Ram told her and he opened his mouth in O shape.
“This didn’t happen for the first. She drinks sometimes when she gets very upset and sad. I just want to say, take care of her.” Ram asked him to take care of her. Then they ended the conversation with in a minute. Sid knew that she drank today because he was ignoring him.
“One day, you will not need alcohol to lessen your pain because I will be there with you to lessen your pain.” Sid murmured to himself after cutting the phone, having determination in his eyes. He had full confidence on his love. He was sure that one day, she would trust him and she wouldn’t need alcohol to share her pain with him.
“Mumma, Daddy.” Muskan opened her eyes. She called her parents to see if they slept or not. She was not feeling sleepy, she wanted to play. She carefully removed her mother hand which was kept on her waist. Then she kept her mother’s hand on her father’s waist. She giggled covering her mouth with her hand. She climbed down from the bed and tiptoed quietly out of the room
“Musu..” she closed her eyes disappointedly and slapped her forehead cutely when her father called her from behind.
“Please daddy..” she mouthed looking at her father with pleading eyes. She nodded her head, pointing her tiny finger at her mumma, asking him in gesture to not tell her mumma. Jay blinked his eyes, asking her to go and also said that he would handle her mumma. Muskan smiled happily showing her all teeth to her daddy. She left after giving flying kiss to her daddy. Jay took Mahi in his arms.
Sana came out of the bathroom after changing her clothes. The clothes were loose to her. She was making cute faces, looking at the long sleeves of shirt when she was walking out of the bathroom. As Sid’s eyes fell on her, automatically a bright smile spread across his face. He started admiring his cute angel. She looked to him and made a cute pout.
“I am looking jhali palli in your clothes.” She uttered cutely, looking at him after reaching to him. Sid chuckled on her word ‘Jhali palli’.
“You are looking super cute, Angel.” He complimented, pulling her cheeks and she made cute faces. Suddenly she smiled broadly making him confused.
“You know when you call me angel. Mujhe bhut acha lagta. I feel happy and special.” She told him and closed her eyes, hugging herself. Sid was just admiring her cuteness. Drunk Sana was sharing everything to him and he was happy about this. At least he was getting to know what she felt for him.
“You have to hide Sana.” As the door knocked, Sid asked her to hide. She denied by nodding her head. He looked at her pleadingly. She melted after looking into his innocent eyes which were pleading her to hide. She pouted and went to hide behind the curtains. He took a deep breath and then went to open the door.
“Chachu musu aagya, aapke sath kheli kheli kalne.” Muskan said and rushed into as Sid opened the door. For the first time Sid didn’t want to play with her. He knew that if Muskan comes to know about Sana, She would spread this news in whole house like she had spread the news about the kiss.
“Musu, Chachu is not well. He will not able to play with you today.” Sid said coming in front of her because she was going in the direction where Sana was hidden. Muskan made a sad pout looking at him. Sid felt guilty to lie again.
“Thike toh fil mein chala jata hoon.” She uttered disappointedly. Sid felt more guilty after seeing her sad, but he was forced. Muskan turned around and strolled to the door.
“I will play with you, Musu.” Sana said coming out from behind the curtains because she couldn’t able to see Muskan’s sadness. Sid closed his eyes disappointedly. Muskan happily turned around.
“Chachi aap yaha. Musu ko toh kisne bataya bi ni aap yaha ho. Ku nhi batya ?” She asked walking to Sid. He was rubbing his forehead not understanding what he should do now. He was just wondering that when Muskan tells everyone about Sana then he would have to face lots of questions.
“Now we will play.” Muskan shrieked joyfully, clapping her hands walking towards Sana.
On the other side Mahi woke up after few minutes only. She got worried when she found Muskan missing. She tried to come out from Jay’s arms but he was not leaving her.
“Jay, Muskan is not here ?” She freaked out and tried to come out of his arms.
“Jaan, don’t worry. She is in Sid’s room. She will come herself. After such a long time, I am sleeping in your arms. Let me sleep and you also sleep.”Jay said in sleepy tone, hugging her more tightly. Mahi was not at all surprised to hear this.
“Whom I should blame naughty father or naughty daughter ? She is the carbon copy of you.” Mahi taunted him and Jay smiled taking it as a compliment. Then they slept, curdling each other.
Sid was sitting on the sofa and enjoying the movie of two kids. Muskan and Sana were running in whole room. They were jumping on the bed, sofa, table and running everywhere in the room. He was forced to sit silently. His heart was happy to see Sana happy and enjoying with Muskan. He wanted her to be carefree like this always. He wanted to take away her all pain and wanted to give her all the happiness of world. He never thought that one day, a girl’s happiness would become first priority of his life.
“Musu toh bhut thak gya.” Muskan huffed, sitting beside Sid. She was breathing heavily and sweating also. Sid wiped the beads of sweat from her forehead.
“Me too..” Sana slumped down on the other side of him. Same condition was her. Now Sid wiped her sweat. Sana smiled looking at him and pulled his cheeks. Sid smiled in response.
“Ab musu toh nini ae hai. Mumma pass chol aao mule.” She rubbed her eyes cutely with her tiny hands. Sid smiled and pecked her cheek. Then he stood up and picked up Muskan in his arms. She hid her face in his chest. Sana was lost in her thoughts.
“I also want kiss.” She said suddenly getting up. Like Sid kissed Muskan’s cheek, Sana also wanted him to kiss her too. Sid looked at her widening his eyes shockingly.
“Later Shehnaaz. Muskan is feeling sleepy.” Sid thought for a second and replied. He gave an excuse. She nodded her head innocently.
“Stay here only. I am coming with in a minute .” He said and left the room with Muskan.
Sid came back with in few minutes, but Sana was nowhere in the room. He became worried for her. He checked the bathroom and then went in balcony. He sighed when he saw her sitting on the poolside, putting her legs in the water. He strolled to her and sat beside her. He also put his legs inside the water. Both passed each other smile. Sid kissed her cheek and she got shocked with his sudden kiss. She opened her mouth and widened her eyes, staring straight.
“Why are you shocked ? You have only asked me to kiss you before.” Sid said after seeing her reaction. He turned her face to himself by holding her face. She became red like a tomato with his one kiss. Her eye were looking down. He was smiling, looking at her. He pulled her face upward, holding her chin. They looked into each other eyes.
“You look super cute when you blush.” He complimented her pointing his index finger to her red cheek . She smiled in response and again her eyelashes moved down.
“You too look cute when you blush. I have seen many times.” As She said, Sid lips curved into a broad smile. He was happy to know that she observes him.
“Sid could I ask something ?” They were talking and suddenly she asked in serious tone looking at him. Sid nodded his head positively.
“How long it takes to forget the betrayal of the person whom you loved a lot ?” As she asked in broken voice, he became silent. He was having no answer of her question. His blank eyes were looking into her eyes which were filled with pain.
“Because it has been so many years, but still I can’t forget. I want to move on by erasing his memories from my life, but it is not happening. He and his memories haunt me like a bad dream and it’s hurt a lot.” She bursted into tears.
“It feels like there is hole in my heart and it is becoming bigger. I want to forget him and his betrayal. I want to move on. Please help me..” she cried resting her head on his chest. Few tears fell down from his eyes. His strong heart was also breaking, seeing her broken angel. He wanted to take away her all pain. She was crying and he was sitting there like a statue. His mind was not working after listening to her sorrowful cry.
“I am crazy. Why I am asking this to you ? Let’s talk about something else.” After sometime she said wiping her tears, looking at him. He was just sadly looking at her.
“Don’t be sad because of me. I want to spread happiness not pain. Life is precious, so enjoy.” She said and splashed the water on him and laughed loudly. Sid was still silent. He didn’t react. Still her cry were ringing in his mind. He wanted to see her happy in real.
Then they talked for sometime and she fell asleep resting her head on his shoulder. Sid tucked her hair behind her ear and kissed her forehead. She smiled in sleep also when his lips touched her skin. Then he took her inside the room after picking her up in his arms. He laid her down on the bed and tugged her in the blanket. He sat on the floor beside her and rested his face on her pillow and started admiring his sleeping angel. He was finding so much peace to see her sleeping . He could stare her for hours. His hands automatically started caressing her soft cheek. He pecked her cheek and she smiled again in response with his kiss. He smiled too when he noticed her smile. He took her photo in his phone. Then he fell asleep on the floor only while gazing at her lovingly.
Sana woke up early in the morning and she was feeling like her head would blast because of the pain. She sat up on the bed, holding her head with her both hands. Then she got shocked when her eyes fell on Sid who was sleeping in sitting position, putting her head on bed. She got more shocked when she looked at the surroundings and her clothes. Her mind started going in the wrong direction. She started taking everything in a wrong way.
“No, this can’t be happened.” She said to herself, clutching the bed sheet tightly. She was thinking that Sid had taken the advantage of her drunk state.
So how do find the update?
