Dewdrops-Chapter 19

Arnav left the hospital after 2 hours. This was the first time in his life he was not talking business to a business magnet like him. Instead he listened; he listened to the old man’s real life story.  He hadn’t asked to know nor he was curious about the great GK. But Mr. Nair had let him Arnav in to his personal life. Arnav was sure he would never be able to voice out about his life Mr. Nair did. However, while leaving he promised GK that he will be back to visit him again and the old man just smiled at him warmly. Arnav was deep in thought while exiting the hospital, his mobile beeped alerting a message. It was from Lavanaya asking him whether he was free, she need to talk to him, personally!

Meanwhile at Raizada Palace, Pavan stood at the big doorway enjoying the scene unfolding in front of him. His Dadi and mami were competing each other to see who is best in dancing while his mischievous darling sister was egging them into competing and bringing out the best from the competitors. While Jeeju, Mama and Akash was laughing out seeing Mami’s desperation to win over her Saas. And his Di and the mischief master brother was siting and enjoying the scene as he was. Pavan’s eyes flitted over NK’s injuries; his heart gave a squeeze of pain. When Arnav had informed him about the accident, he got worried. Even though Arnav had assured him everything was fine, it didn't stop his worrying. He couldn't stay back; he took the next flight as soon as he could.

Akash was twirling Khushi when she noted a figure at the door smiling at everyone inside. First she thought her eyes were playing tricks but the image remained there and she screamed out loudly in happiness “Bhaiya!” and ran to him. Pavan saw Khushi running into him like typhoon coming. He waited for her to crash into his arms. He had missed his baby.

 All were surprised to see Pavan and the greetings started. Pavan took his Dadi’s, Mama’s and Mami’s blessings first then went to NK, he hugged him closely, smiling and said “You look better than I expected”. Nk replied “Yes Bhai, I am feeling better, I told you there was no need to be worried, but since you came, I can claim that …” NK looked at Khushi and continued in a teasing manner “that my Bhai loves me more”. Khushi was about to retort for it when Pavan pleaded to his siblings “oh! Now you two don't start! I just landed only, give me some time to relax, then I will start to hear your tantrums” while others laughed.

Arnav and Lavanaya had a long discussion about their future and after their talk both agreed to put their fake engagement on hold. Arnav understood her reasoning and in between the talk she had questioned him “ASR, is it only for Di’s happiness you are getting engaged or is there any thing else”. 

He hadn’t answered her since he too needed some time to gather his thoughts. After talking to GK, he was confused. Arnav had been confident before that he could manage his feelings but recently his treacherous heart seems to giving away his resolve. He cant let go of her but then will he be able to keep her happy? 

Author's Note: Hey dears, it's a short update. When I saw your comments and requests, eagerly waiting for updates, I couldn't help it. I know I haven’t done justice here by keeping so many conversations incomplete. Those conversations will be updated in upcoming chapters as flashbacks. This chapter is dedicated to Bhakti and Jasmine Shabir whose sweet requests made me write this update in spite of my busy schedule. And specially to Daljeet for reasons you know!

    Arnav having conversation or rather listening to someone's private life with interest is new and promising to visit back.. I m already loving mr nair..

    Thank god lavanya being the sensible one asked for holding off the engagement that would give Arnav some space and he would be able to think clear..

  15. loved hte update.

    esp pavan's entry.nvr thot the man at the door wud be n the pic was so cute.loved it.

    loved his concern for his siblings."Pavan’s eyes flitted over NK’s injuries; his heart gave a squeeze of pain."wat a lovely big brother.he is certainly qualified to be called big brother.he seems a bro,father n mother at the same time.i mean his concern n restlessness wen he heard nk injured n how he came down to meet them putting aside everything revealed his mother side to them.
    how he checked him n behaved with kushi as his baby revealed his father side.
    n how he said 'give me a break to relax n then i'll listen to ur tantrums' showed the bro side in him.
    in tht one scene u wer able to pull out pavan's char to the maximum.loved him dear.he is one of the best creation by u like sunny.

    man i miss sunny too much.bring him back soon.

    loved nk teasing kushi saying his bro loves him more.tht was so cute.i expected a pillow on his face next moment instead of

    wat was nair's talk with arnav?wat did la discuss all of a sudden wen she had agreed to everything already?so many qtns unanswered.i hope u get them answered soon as u said in the author's note.

    one doubt.will sunny be able to pull his plans well wen pavan is around????im a bit skeptical n scared there.

    n hey thanks for dedicating this chap for me too.n nxt chap my char is coming up.than ku so i wish u give my pic itself instead of *****,u,joking.but pavan is mine fights.u can do watever u want with nk n sunny.wen pavan is there i bother the least abt them.*giggle*


    1. U r unbelievable! :-) being my sister is your advantage :-) at least u know who is the entry coming up in the next updates..don't spoil the surprise I plan :-) ha ha..sunny will b back soon, I get many request, i never knew my creation of him b such a huge hit!

  16. I think the imagination that's poured out has been given a wonderful shape, texture and fragrance to make it very very appealing, evoking responses from so many readers..! You have gone deep into the characters and their thought process to give us all a real time experience of the saga. and you have also managed to keep the interest of the readers alive, eagerly waiting for the next epidoses. great work.

  17. i just hope that Arnav would now realize Sunny's place in Khushi's life n wont get jealous n ragey ..

    hope his talks wid Mr. Nair helps him a lil ..
    great work

    Ecstacy IF
