Mukti and Cabir, they were coming for the dinner. Shehnaaz wore a beautiful black dress. She was sitting on the chair which was kept in front of the mirror. Sidharth was combing her hair carefully while she was gazing at him through the mirror, having a smile on her face.
“Beautiful.” He complimented her. He leaned down and kissed her head. He was gazing at her through the mirror and his hands were kept on her shoulders.
“I love you.” She stood up and said after turning toward him.
“I love you more, my star.” He cupped her face and kissed her forehead. She closed her eyes in response.
“I want to kiss your lips so badly. My lips are craving to taste them.” He whispered, brushing her lower with his thumb.
“My soul is desperately waiting for the day when you will make me yours.” She whispered, gazing into his eyes deeply. Her eyes were screaming how much she loved him.
“That day gonna come soon when my star will be mine only. When there will be only my right on you. When there will be no fear of separation when there will be no barrier between us and when we will become together forever and ever.” He whispered, touching his face with her. Both got lost in each other.
“Will that day ever come?” She asked, having fear in her voice and eyes.
“Of course, Star. Everybody will accept our love because our love isn’t wrong. Look, Mukti and Cabir, they are also with us now. Believe me, everything will be fine.” He assured her, blinking his eyes. She nodded her head in yes.
Mukti and Shehnaaz, they were in the bedroom and Cabir and Sidharth, they were downstairs.
“I am sorry that I misjudged you yesterday. I was shocked by seeing you and Sidharth together. I thought you love Shivansh and you are happy with him.” Mukti apologised from Shehnaaz, holding her hand. She was feeling guilty for misjudging her.
“It’s Okay, Mukti. If somebody else was at your place, he would have reacted in the same way only. Don’t feel guilty.”
“I want to say thank you for being there with me and Sidharth. I won’t lie that I didn’t think that you both will support us. I thought that you both would be against us. But I am so glad that you both are with us. Thank you so much.” Shehnaaz hugged her and there was a smile of relief on her face. Mukti hugged her back.
“Shehnaaz, I understand you because I know, falling in love is not in our hand. It is god’s wish. It is impossible to run away from love. It is very difficult to forget the person whom you love. Love can happen to anybody and anywhere. We can’t stop our heart from beating for that person. We have no control over our hearts.” Mukti said after breaking the hug. Shehnaaz was shocked to see that how she knew so much about love.
“Mukti, Can I ask you something?”Shehnaaz asked from Mukti.
“Yeah sure.” Mukti nodded her head in approval.
“Do you also love somebody?”Mukti was shocked by her question. She was staring at Shehnaaz shockingly.
“Yes, I also love somebody.” She took a deep breath and answered her. She paused and continued after a few seconds. “But my situation is different than you.”
“How ?” Shehnaaz asked instantly.
“The person whom I love, he loves somebody else. After knowing this also, I can’t stop my heart from loving him.” Mukti’s eyes brimmed with tear and she bit her lower lip to control herself from crying. Shehnaaz felt bad for her.
“I can understand. But I am sure, you will surely get the person who will love you. And never forget, I am there for you always. You can share with me anything.” Shehnaaz placed her hand on her shoulder and squeezed it slightly to assure her that she is with her. Mukti gave her a faint smile.
“Shehnaaz, please don’t tell Sidharth about our this conversation. He is already going through a lot and I don’t want to make him more upset. I have shared this with you only.” Mukti requested Shehnaaz to don’t tell her secret to Sidharth.
“Don’t worry, I won’t tell this to Sidharth.” Shehnaaz blinked her eyes, assuring her that she won’t tell.
“I think, we shall go downstairs now for the dinner,” Shehnaaz said and Mukti nodded her head. Then they walked out of the room.
Mukti and Shehnaaz come downstairs and saw Sidharth and Cabir standing at the bar counter and they were holding the glass of scotch in their hands. Their eyes fell on them.
“We were waiting for you both only, let’s have dinner because I am starving,” Cabir said after putting the glass of scotch on the counter.
“Today, Shehnaaz has cooked the food,” Sidharth told them excitedly, strolling to Mukti and Shehnaaz. Shehnaaz smiled, listening to his words.
“What? Really? Now my hunger has increased more.” All chuckled listening to Cabir’s words. Then they all wandered to the dining table.
Shehnaaz stepped out of the bathroom, wearing Sidharth’s T-shirt. She felt comfortable in his clothes only. Until he can’t touch her body, this was the best way to keep him close to her. Sidharth was waiting for her, lying on the bed. As she lay down beside him and he took her in his warm arms.
“Sidharth, tomorrow is a big day for us. I am nervous. I am going to hurt Shivansh. He was living in a hope that one day, I would confess love to him. He loves me so much, Sidharth. I never wanted to hurt him.” She hugged Sidharth tightly and she was on the verge of crying. Sidharth hugged her tighter, closing his eyes.
“Shehnaaz…” He was about to say something but stopped as he heard the ringtone of her phone.
She broke the hug and picked up the phone which was kept on the side table of the bed. She closed her eyes dejectedly after seeing the caller id. Sidharth also looked at the phone screen and saw that Shivansh’s name was flashing on it.
“Pick it up, Shehnaaz,” Sidharth placed his hand on her shoulder.
“I can’t..” she denied nodding her head in no sadly.
Sidharth snatched the phone from her hand and picked it up. Shehnaaz tried to stop him but he didn’t stop.
“Do you even remember that you have a husband, Shehnaaz? No calls, no messages.” Sidharth put the phone on speaker and they both heard Shivanh’s voice from another side.
Sidharth gestured Shehnaaz to speak. She took a deep breath before speaking.
“I am sorry, Shivansh. I was sleeping in the morning because I’m not feeling well.” She finally answered him and looked at Sidharth sadly. Sidharth blinked his eyes and squeezed her shoulder slightly.
“Which means, you were at home whole day?” He asked.
“Yes..” she answered him.
“Shehnaaz, I am missing you so much. We will go on a long trip. Now I want to spend time with my wife. I love you so much.” Shehnaaz closed her eyes and few tears trickled down her cheeks mechanically. Sidharth was also feeling sad. He was again feeling guilty for snatching his happiness, his wife from him whom he loved so much.
“Shivansh, we will talk tomorrow. I am not feeling well. And I have to share something very important with you.” She composed herself and said with difficulty while wiping her tears.
“Take care, Shehnaaz. Good night.”
“Good night, Shivansh.” She cut the call and cried miserably, covering her mouth with her hand. It was getting very difficult for Sidharth to control his emotions.
“I don’t want to hurt him, Sidharth. I don’t..” she cried resting her head on his chest. Sidharth stroke her back, having tears in his eyes. They had no other option rather than hurting him. They were scared and guilty.
Don’t forget to tell me how do you find the update.
