SS : Recapturing Part 1

December 5, 2012

RECAP from SS : Memories –



Lowering her head, he kissed her forehead gently…”I’m here now Khushi…we’re together again…”

She lifted her eyes to his…”Are we?”

Moving her hair away from her eyes, he nodded…”Our hearts have been together all these years…and now…now they’ve united us once again…I know you want to take things slowly, and I understand that…you only just got your memory back, and I know that you got scared…but Khushi, you KNOW me…I won’t hurt you…I just want to be with you…”

“I want to be with you too…”

Hearing her say those words lifted another gigantic weight from his soul…

He smiled taking a deep breath…”…Stubborn headed woman…”

This time, instead of gasping at his joking insult, she smiled…”I don’t think that’s what you used to called me…I think that’s what I called YOU!”

“Oh, so I’m a stubborn headed WOMAN!?”

Khushi laughed, and Arnav’s nerves shook hearing the beautiful sound…

“I know…I know…I was the stubborn headed man…and you…were my free spirited princess…”

Locked in the memories of the moment, they didn’t hear the knocking at his office door…

Their gazes flashed, snapping mental pictures of every eye lock they had ever shared…

Recapturing what was beginning once again…





~RECAPTURING~






The knock on the door grew insistently louder and feeling furious with whoever was outside, Arnav stepped back and yelled, “What!”
The handle turned, and Khushi’s eyes widened in shock as she watched a tall, suave woman walk in…
Shock was also registering on Arnav’s face, as he saw the last woman he ever dated walk in…
“Arnav…Hi…”
She walked closer trying to kiss his cheek, but he quickly stepped back…
The woman lifted one brow…”You want to play hard to get again ASR?”
Arnav instantly turned to Khushi, who was trying to softly leave the room…
“Khushi. Stop!”
Her steps halted…
“Khushi look at me…”
Her nerves were on fire…
She had never had the chance to be jealous over her best friend, but now, seeing this woman trying to attach to HER man, set a furious green-eyes monster loose inside her.
Khushi still hadn’t turned around…
“Hmmm…ASR you really need to find better staff…ones that will listen to you…”
Simultaniously, Khushi spun around and Arnav’s laser filled eyes darted furiously to the woman in front of him… 
“Don’t you DARE talk to her like that!”
The woman defiantly placed her hands on her hips…”Do you REALLY think you should speak to me that way!? Seeing as it is MY line of clothing you are about to launch?!”
Arnav’s eyes widened…
“What?…” he said, almost in shock…
“Yes…” the woman smirked…”I told you that night you drove me home, that I would be back in your life…after all, you did share a lot of your feelings with me…”
Before Arnav could speak, the woman turned to Khushi.
“I assume you are ASR’s secretary or something? I am Sheetal Kapoor. Go and get all the folios that I had sent over, as we will need them to begin our work.”
“STOP IT! RIGHT NOW!”
Khushi kept her eyes on the floor.
If she looked up she would only see pain and betrayal.
Arnav pushed passed the tall woman and came in front of Khushi, quickly gripping her hands…
“Khushi look at me…” his voice was so gentle that it almost made her look up…
“ASR, since when did you start caring about your employees?” Sheetal said laughing…
Ignoring her once more, he carefully lifted his hand to her cheek…”Khushi…?”
Her lips were trembling, her body was shaking…
She had to get out.
“Pl…Please…please excuse me…” she whispered as she tore her hands from his and bolted from the room…
Arnav swiftly darted after her …
“Khushi! STOP!”
She had just reached the bottom of the stairs when two other employees grabbed her arms to stop her…
The men both smirked, as if they knew their Boss would soon return to his senses…
As Arnav closed in, he saw them constraining her.
He rushed towards her and held her hand, as his voice turned deathly quiet…”GET YOUR HANDS OFF HER, NOW…”
Instantly, the men released their grip…
“Sir, we…we heard you tell her to…to stop…we thought…”
Delicately sliding his arm around Khushi’s waist, he drew her close…
Sheetal now stood halfway down the stairs in complete shock over what she was seeing…
Arnav held Khushi firmly as he announced to his staff…”If anyone lays a hand on Khushi, If anyone speaks ill of her, if anyone upsets her, if anyone rebukes her…they will deal with me personally! Because this woman, right here…IS MINE! Do you all understand!?”
Khushi’s eyes were glued to his, and her mouth open in shock…
Arnav, still scowling, now moved his focus to her eyes…
He was pure power and authority.
A millions thoughts swarmed through her head, but not a sound could come from her mouth…
Arnav could see that she was in shock over Sheetal’s presence, over what she had said, and now, over what HE had just said…
But he wasn’t ready to let there be ANY misunderstanding…
He loved her, and he didn’t care who knew about it.
Gently holding the back of her head, he drew her close and kissed her forehead…
“I love you…” he whispered as he stepped back…
Turning to Aman, Arnav began rattling off details about the new line of fashion…”I know this deal is important, but I will NOT work with her alone. If there is going to be ANY meetings, then I want you, and other editors present…understand?”
Hearing his words, Khushi felt relief flood her senses…”He DOESN’T want to be alone with her…he didn’t appear to like her at all…but why did she say that she drove him home…why did she say that he shared things with her?”
Khushi’s thoughts were soon interrupted when she was questioned by a fellow worker about the edits she had made…
Her head turned to Arnav, who was still in discussion with Aman…
“Khushi did you do 2 or 3 copies? Because 3 are needed…”
“Huh?…oh, I’m sorry…I did make 3 copies, follow me, I will get them…” Khushi tried to detach from her present situation, and attempted to focus on her work…
………………..

Arnav was now in a primal mood.
Things hadn’t  been going the way that he thought they would…
Having Khushi back in his life was the most precious treasure…
And he couldn’t let anything disrupt that.
And he knew that Sheetal was here to disrupt as much as she could.
Arnav grimaced as he fiercely began hitting the letters on his keyboard…
His office was resounding with sharp clicks…
Thoughts of the last time he saw her began to torment him…
He felt sick  recalling her words…

*Flashback*
“I know you must have been hurt ASR…you’re very closed off…but can’t you let me help? I don’t want to pressurize you for anything…I just want you to open up to me…”
Arnav gripped the steering wheel tighter as he drove down the dark streets…
“I don’t talk about my personal life. You  were my date for a conference. For appearances. Nothing more.”
Sheetal sighed…”You may SAY that ASR, but you’ve NEVER taken the same woman on a date more than once, this is the second gala you have taken me to…”
“You were standing right next to me when I got the invitation…that is the ONLY reason.”
She began to put on a sulking act…”ASR, I have helped you on two occasions now…can’t you at least share something with me? I can see that something from your past has hurt you…”
Now that he was being questioned about how he was hurt, he felt fury and sadness invade his heart…
“All I can hear is her scream…”
The woman began to smirk, hearing him talk…
“I was driving…and…and she didn’t survi…”
He stopped talking as his foot slammed on the brakes.
Arnav then felt a hand on his shoulder…”ASR…”
“I’m tired of feeling so helpless at that sound! I hear that scream and I become unable to think! Unable to move!”
His heart was thudding in his chest…
He was Arnav Singh Raizada.
Surely he had more power than this.
Shifting closer, the woman whispered close to his cheek…”I can help…I can help take those memories away…”
Arnav slammed his eyes shut…
As he did, the woman moved in and pressed her mouth to his…
The second he felt her lips on his, Arnav pushed her away with disgust, and hurried to wipe any trace of her off his mouth with the back of his hand…
“Don’t be like this ASR! You just opened up to me!”
A dark cloud of guilt swept over him…
Starting the car, Arnav pushed his foot to the floor…
Within minutes, he came to a sharp stop outside the Sheetal’s apartment…
“Out.” he said curtly.
The woman tried to run her hand over his leg, only to have him harshly push her away…
“I said GET the HELL out of my car Sheetal!”
She smoothly stepped out…”I know you’re hurting…but I also know that I can help you…and I’ll be back in your life soon ASR…”
Not bothering to look at her, he released the brake, and drove away…
*End of Flashback*
Standing up in anger, he stormed to the edge of his office and stared out the glass…
His eyes immediately hit their target…
Khushi sat silently, staring into space…
He could see her thinking…
He could see her barely holding onto the pen in her hand…
Feeling as if his heart would explode for her, he quickly called her desktop phone…
“Hello?”
“Khushi can you come up to my office now please…”
“No.”
“What!?”
“I don’t want anyone else thinking that…”
“Khushi Kumari Gupta. In my office. Now.”
Khushi’s eyes darted to the top of the stairs.
She looked from the phone, back to the stairs…
Arnav stood there, his countenance strong as he vocally called for her.
Khushi stood slowly, still holding the phone…
His eyes didn’t stray from hers…
Feeling the entire office’s gaze on her, she began to get annoyed…
Slamming the phone down, she marched directly up to his office.
Slamming his door, she prodded him in the chest…”Who do you think you are!? Are you trying to embarrass me?! Insult me!? What are you doing Arnavji!?”
Arnav drew the blinds across the windows and confronted her…
“Khushi, I said what I HAD to…I don’t WANT to hide the fact that I am in love with you…”
Crossing her arms, she sneered…”Oh…so is THAT what you ‘shared’ with your lady friend?”
He took a sudden step forwards…”THIS is why I called you here…I will NOT have you believing such things!”
“I don’t know WHAT I believe!”
They were interrupted by Arnav’s phone alarm.
“Look, It’s time to go home. We can talk there…come…”
He made a move to take her hand but she shied away…
“No. I don’t want to go anywhere with you…”
“Khushi,” he slowly prowled forwards…”You’re coming with me…it’s late…and you have no say in this…
Not wanting to be in the spotlight again, Khushi frowned as she gave a reluctant nod…
…………….
Neither spoke.
And her silence was pure torture.
He knew she had questions about Sheetal.
He KNEW that her emotions were still vulnerable, and more than anything, he wanted to protect her from any more hurt.
They arrived back home and walked inside in silence.
“Chote? Khushiji? What perfect timing, dinner is almost ready…”
Khushi gave a slight smile to Anjali and quickly excused herself…
“Khushi…I need to talk to…”
“Chote?…She just got home, give her some time to freshen up…”
Arnav’s eyes went from Anjali, to a retreating Khushi, and back to Anjali…
Shaking his head, he said…”No Di, I need to talk to her now, before she convinces herself of something….”
“What?” Anjali muttered in confusion as Arnav marched away.
………………
Khushi hurried out to the poolside…
The night air cooled her cheeks…
But the uneasiness would not quell inside of her…
After pacing back and forth numerous times, she finally spun around and  ran into a brick wall.
A warm flesh and blood brick wall.
Khushi quickly stepped back, ready to speak, but Arnav spoke first…
“Please let me explain…” his voice was gruff…”I did date…I took dates to events I was hosting or organizing…but Khushi…” his hands lifted to hold her upper arms gently…”I never loved any of them. I never FELT anything for any of them…In fact I felt guilty for even…”
“I know Arnavji…It’s okay…” she said softly…
Arnav narrowed his eyes and studied her…
She wasn’t looking at him.
She was keeping her gaze carefully hidden…
Khushi couldn’t let him see her eyes…
Because she knew what he’d see…
“Calm down Khushi…calm down…” she repeated over and over in her mind…”Stop imagining him pressing his lips to the spot where your pulse is beating erratically…”
Arnav cautiously lifted her chin with his fingers, but still her eyes looked away…
“Khushi?…Please look at me…Please…Are you alright?”
She bit her tongue as her thoughts began to scream…”Alright? …Am I alright? NO! I want you to ravage me like you said you could do…I want that woman far far away from you…I want every woman far away from you!”
Arnav stepped closer, their torsos nearly touching…”Why won’t you look at me?”
“Because then you’ll see…” she said softly
“See what?” his fingers under her chin were forcing her gaze to his…
His focus moved to her lips, then back up to her eyes…
“See this…” her voice whispered, as her eyes locked with his…
She didn’t have to put a name to it…
Because the love that they shared was too powerful to name…
With a thundering heart, Arnav curled his hand around the back of her neck, and brought their mouths together…only allowing a whisper soft brush of his lips on hers…
But each successive near-kiss silently urged her lips to part…
When Khushi made a distressed sound, Arnav consumed her mouth in a kiss that robbed her of reason…
A kiss packed with passion as his tongue invaded her lips, licking into her mouth…
Cranking her desire to fever pitch, he proved he was completely hers, and fully able to ravage her…
Stepping forward, he bent her back over his arm, situating her head to deepen the kiss.
The tips of his fingers stroked her jawline in the perfect mix of rough and tender…
Khushi pressed her body to his, wishing for a solid surface behind her so she could twine herself him…
Almost as if he read her thoughts, he propelled her backwards until her spine connected with the wall.
He gripped her hips and lifted her, his pelvis held her in place as his hands roamed up into her hair, holding her to his kiss…
His attention to her made her giddy and greedy.
Driving her hands into his hair, she twined her fingers around the damp strands…
Arnav knew that nothing could happen between them yet, so he began to slow the kiss from frantic to flirty, interspersing long, hot kisses with sweet, affectionate brushes of his lips…
Dragging his mouth away, his lips skated down her neck…nipping, biting, and sucking…
Khushi moaned when he placed his open mouth over the swell of her breast…
“Arnavji…”
Arnav rested his forehead in the curve of her shoulder, his breathing ragged…”I have to stop Khushi…I’m not going to take this any further until we have one thing straight…”
Lifting his head, he looked at her face…
It had begun to rain…
Soft showers of cool raindrops were splashing onto them…
His eyes drank her in…
Flushed, panting, eyes closed tight…
She was shaking her head…a silent plea for him to continue kissing her…
“Khushi…I love you…”
Arnav released her slowly…
Once her feet were on the ground, Khushi began to realize that she hit reality again…
Digging her fingers into the muscles of his arms, she tried to get closer again…
Arnav kissed her again with a mixture of authority and seduction, and she was lost everything but how right she felt in his arms, how perfect his mouth fit against hers.
Pulling away only slightly, he growled against her mouth…”I love you Khushi…”
She nodded rapidly as she breathed her reply…”Ar…Arnavji, I love you….”
Pulling her harshly against him, she gasped…
“I’ve allowed no other woman ever remotely close to me! And from this second, No other man is allowed close to you…because according to me, WE are still engaged from 4 years ago…”
Khushi froze.
He was right.
They had made promises to each other.
“And you, are mine…Khushi Kumari Gupta…”
Indignantly, her eyes shot up to his…”I know you’re a successful businessman Mr Raizada, but you should also remember that I’ve NEVER let you boss me around!”
Her defiance woke up all his senses…
Never in his life had any other woman stirred every single nerve in his body…
With narrowing eyes, he growled at her…”Well guess what…I am your boss AND your fiancé…”
Khushi reacted, now pushing at his chest…”Let me go! Arnavji, Let me go!”
Clenching his teeth, he thrust his pelvis forwards, holding her to the wall,  closed his hands around her wrists and hoisted them above her head…
“Don’t push me Khushi…You KNOW who I am. I am Arnav Singh Raizada…”
“I know very well who you are!” she snapped, “And quoting your full name may frighten others, but don’t forget who I AM! Khushi Kumari Gupta!”
Locked and entwined in their intimate position, their fierce and unerring gazes burned…
As his eyes delved deep into her soul, she felt sensations begin to ignite inside her…
An unfamiliar pulsing in her loins began getting stronger…
Arnav could see her eyes sparkling with energy…
No other woman would ever have the nerve to stand up to him like Khushi did…
And knowing that her fighting spirit was still alive, send splices of electricity throughout his body…
With his grip still tight on her hands, his line of vision settled on her lips…
Khushi’s lips parted automatically…
“Don’t challenge me Miss Gupta…”
Khushi took a deep breath in…
Her breasts pushed against his shirt she sucked the air in…
Arnav’s grip on her hands loosened momentarily feeling her chest expand…
Taking her chance, Khushi pulled her hands free and shoved him away…
Staggering backwards, Arnav quickly regained his momentum, only to see wisps of her hair disappearing from his room…
