Mukti sighed deeply. “Yes, I am in love with somebody but he doesn’t love me,” she paused and then continued after few seconds, “but I’m fine because he is happy. His happiness is more important to me than getting him. I have understood this and I hope, you would also understand this.”
Shivansh for a moment got lost in her. “How can you be so positive ?” He asked getting a bit shocked.
She put her hand on his shoulder. “Just, I look at the things differently. I just want his happiness, It doesn’t matter whether it is with me or without me. When you will see Shehnaaz’s smiling face then I’m sure, you will understand me properly.”
Shivansh was listening to her patiently and trying to understand her. “I hope so.” He murmured and Mukti gave him an assurance smile.
“Now, you get fresh and I’m preparing lunch for you. I’m sure, you must not have eaten anything since morning.” She assumed, and he just nodded his head.
“Shivansh, you will be fine. I’m with you,” she paused. “I mean, everybody is with you.”
“I know.” He blinked his eyes, telling her in a gesture that he is fine. Then he went to get fresh.
“I just hope that Shivansh will start looking at the things like I’m seeing them. It will be good for him.” After saying this, Mukti went to prepare lunch for him.
Shehnaaz was making lunch, standing in the kitchen. She was trying to think positive now and started feeling better also. She was making fried rice and for that, she was cutting the vegetables. Sidharth walked inside and snaked his arms around her from behind. She shivered with his touch. He was nuzzling her hair.
“I love you, my star.” He whispered in her ear and gently kissed her cheek.
“I love you more.” She smiled broadly, putting a hand on his face.
“By the way, What are you preparing ?” He asked, standing beside her and ate the carrot which she was cutting.
“Make it fast because I’m starving.” He rubbed his tummy like a small kid. She smiled at him.
“Won’t you help me ?” She asked, raising her eyebrows.
“No, I will do my important work.” He shook his head
She looked at him suspiciously. “What important work ?”
“You will come to know.” He smiled wickedly at her, making her confused. She started cutting tomatoes after the carrots for the fried rice.
He again stood behind her and pulled her closer to himself after wrapping his one hand around her waist. Her heart skipped beating for a moment as his body came in contact with her body. With his free hand, he gently placed her hair over one side of her shoulder. He was kissing all over her back and she felt so good. She clutched the knife tightly and squeezed the tomato in response. His touch was making her crazy. She wanted him to kiss every inch of her body like this. His touch was heaven for her. She was melting like an ice cream with his touch.
He reached to her neck after trailing up kisses her back. She arched her back in response. He was nibbling and kissing every inch of her neck. She turned toward him after leaving the knife and tomato. As she turned, he captured her lips. He held her face between his hands and she encircled her arms around his neck. Their chest was pressing against each other. She was tucking his hair. He was kissing her lips softly, pouring his all love in the kiss. She was responding to him with the equal flavour. Their body were burning with desires.
He picked her up, holding her waist and placed her on the kitchen’s platform without breaking the kiss. She encircled her legs around his hips and deepened the kiss, pulling him closer to herself. His hands started going inside her top but she pushed him away.
“Sidharth, I’m still married.” She uttered in a sad tone, looking at him.
“It’s just happened in the heat of moment, I’m sorry.” He apologised, coming close to her.
“I can understand.” She blinked her eyes.
“Are you really fine, Shehnaaz ?” Sidharth asked concernedly, cupping her face.
“I’m trying to think positive as you said and I’m feeling better. I have you, Sidharth with me. Every pain and happiness are smaller in front of this. I’m happy and I love you a lot.” She confessed after touching her face with him.
“My happiness is your happiness, Shehnaaz.” He kissed her forehead and she smiled to fullest.
“Now go and let me prepare the lunch.” She said, pushing him away and jumped down the kitchen counter.
“Do you need any help, my star?” He said, coming close to her face.
“No, Mr Shukla.” She pushed him out of the kitchen.
“That’s not fair. You can’t throw me out like this from my own kitchen. I wanted to help you.” He pouted sadly like a small baby.
“Go Sidharth, I’m hungry.” She turned to walk. She was smiling broadly seeing his childish behaviour for the first time. She was falling in love with him more.
Shivansh was sitting on the chair in the dining room while Mukti was serving him the lunch. He looked at her and smiled slightly, seeing the way she was taking care of him.
“Thank you, Mukti.” These words automatically escaped out of his mouth. He thanked her from the core of his heart. She changed his point of view within a second. He wasn’t feeling sad anymore. He was realising that he had always wished to see Sidnaaz happy and when they had finally found their happiness, then what’s the need to being sad.
“Shivansh, I’m your friend. Don’t say thank you, please.” She requested him.
“But, you deserve this, so thank you, Mukti. Thank you.” He again thanked her, grasping her wrist. She froze for a moment as his hands touched her.
“You have changed my life. I don’t know why I was thinking so negative and wasn’t looking at the positive side. Everything has two sides, positive and negative, and we should always look at the positive side for a better life.” Mukti nodded her head, agreeing with him.
As she looked at their hands, Shivansh instantly left her hand.
“Now, I shall leave.” She said after serving him the lunch.
“Won’t you join me?” He asked disappointedly because he was enjoying her company.
“I want to give you some alone time Shivansh to set your mind.” She answered him.
“You can go after having lunch with me.” He suggested, she nodded her head in response and sat beside him after pulling out the chair for herself.
“The food is yummy, Mukti. You cook nice, I didn’t even know this.” He praised her and she smiled slightly, looking at him.
“You don’t know anything about me, Shivansh.” She murmured under her breath, staring down at the table.
“Mukti, I’m thinking to meet Shehnaaz and Sidharth. I want to free Shehnaaz from this relationship by giving divorce to her. Will you come with me ?” He suddenly asked from Mukti.
“Why not ?” She agreed and he smiled.
“Shivansh, are you really fine? Are you ready to face her?” Mukti asked concernedly, putting her hand on his hand which was kept on the table.
“I don’t know, maybe.” He was doubtful. “I’m relieved after listening to whatever you said to me. I can face her, I want to see her happy, I want to see Sidharth happy with my eyes.” He told her, but she could see that he was a little lost.
“I’m with you.” She squeezed his hand and blinked her eyes. He smiled slightly at her and for the first time, he looked into her eyes deeply and forget everything. He found his world in her those black eyes.
“Shivansh, where did you get lost ?” Mukti asked, putting a hand on his shoulder. He came on the earth back and shook his head, avoiding eye contact with her. He didn’t understand what was that. But whatever it was, he felt like, he found everything.
What do you think, Shivansh is falling in love with Mukti?
How do you find Sidnaaz romance?
