SS : The Development Part 1

May 17, 2013

ONE HOUR TO GO TILL THE WEDDING…



Shyam moved slowly into the room…
Now was the time…finally…
He was going to take Khushi away…
He heard motion and smiled as he spoke…”Oh Khushiji… just when you thought all would go smoothly…Look who walks in…”
Shyam was about to laugh with pride at his triumph…
But at his eyes caught sight of who he was speaking to, his face turned white with shock…
“What are YOU doing here?! What the hell is going on!?”
Shyam looked around the room as the woman before him hurled questions at his face…
“What am I doing here?” Shyam growled…”You’re supposed to be with Arnav!”
Sheetal stormed forwards and slapped Shyam hard on the face…”YOU did this didn’t you!? You sabotaged my attempt at being with ASR! After I did so much for you to successfully take that bitch!? After I put that powder…”
Grabbing Sheetals arms, Shyam shoved her aside and snarled…”I don’t have time for YOU! Obviously YOU misheard me when I told you where Arnav would be! Khushiji is supposed to be in here, ready for me to take her!”
Sheetal shook her head…”No…there was a last minute change…about 10 minutes ago, ASR changed the location of the bridal room to HIS office…YOU should have known that!”
Another hush flowed over the room…
“Ten minutes ago?”

Shyam recalled being in an empty work room with a laptop logged into AR Designs homescreen…and NOTHING had been changed the entire time…
Nodding Sheetal began to bite her nails…”Yes…10 minutes, what does that matter? Lets just go and get this over with…”
“Shutup!”  Shyam yelled as he quickly ran to the door…
Locked.
“Shit!” he screamed as he turned swiftly…”He knows!”
Sheetal turned pale…”Who? Not…not ASR…”
The over head speakers in the office suddenly began to emit static…
Then Arnav’s loud voice boomed throughout the room…
“Shyam Manohar Jha and Sheetal Kapoor…Everything you both have said has been heard by the local police, and you are both under arrest.”
Arnav turned off the speaker, and smiled at his friend…”They’re all yours…”
“Thankyou…now we just need to track down the man Shyam was working with…and they shall both remain in jail until they receive their sentence…”
Arnav grabbed his car keys from the desk in front of him…”Now, if you’ll excuse me…I have to go and get married…”
………..
Khushi paced around her room…
Her hair was done, curled to perfection with waves of brown silk cascading over her shoulders…
“Khushiji, come and we’ll help you do your make up!”
Payal rushed over to Khushi and grabbed her hand…”Come on! We’ll go to Anjaliji’s room and make you even more gorgeous than you already are!”
Despite her jumping nerves, Khushi smiled and felt a jolt of excitement shoot through her…
Anjali and Payal showed palettes of eye shadows, and endless colors of lipsticks…
Khushi began rubbing her temples…”Ugh, so many decisions…why don’t you pick for me, I’m too nervous to choose…”
Standing up, she vaguely heard Payal choose one and Anjali choose another…
“Where is Arnavji? How could he be in meetings on our wedding day?”
Anjali paused…”uh…he…he’s…”
Khushi’s phone began to ring, interrupting a relieved Anjali.
“Hello?”
“How’s my bride?”
Khushi smiled, feeling more at ease hearing his voice…”I miss you…”
“I miss you too…30 minutes to go now…”
Suddenly feeling dizzy, Khushi scrambled to sit down on the bed…”Oh God…”
“Hey hey! You said you’d TRY not to worry!”
Payal could see her sister getting nervous…”Khushi, makeup time!!!”
“See, Payal is ready to try and make you over…although it won’t do any good…You’re already the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen…”
Feeling her cheeks go bright red, Khushi grinned …”I love you…I’ll see you soon…”
“Yes you will see me soon…look up…”
Khushi looked up and saw Arnav’s shadow behind the frosted glass of the door…

“You’re…you’re here?!”
“Come to the door…I won’t open it…just come to the door…”
Khushi dropped her phone …
She put her hand up against the glass and saw Arnav press his against her shadow…”Now stop worrying Khushi…Everything will be fine…”
“Ok ok!” Anjali called out…”This is all very romantic, but we have 25 minutes now! So Chote, Get lost!”
Khushi began to laugh and took a deep breath…
“Ok Di, Just look after her…give her a drink of water…do her make up…I’ll be downstairs…ready to marry my best friend…”
“CHOTE!” Anjali called out feeling frustrated…
“OK OK!!!! Sheesh!” he grinned as he walked away…
Payal called out to one of the servants asking them to bring some water up for Khushi…
Anjali applied a soft brown eye shadow to Khushi’s lids…”Okay open your eyes…”
Khushi was almost in a dreamlike state…
Payal held her shoulder and shook her softly…”Khushi?”
There was a soft knock on the door…
Anjali answered the door and took the tray of water…
“Payalji wait! Before you apply her lipstick, let her have a drink…”
Reaching out, Khushi took the glass of water and raised it to her lips and drank it down…
“Better?”
She nodded at her sister…
“Alright then, 10 minutes to go! Get that color on her lips and we can get this show on the road!”
“Road?!” Khushi screeched, her voice filling with anxiety…
Anjali rolled her eyes…”It’s a figure of speech, Calm down! It just means we can get things started!”
Closing her eyes on a sigh, Khushi felt a soft lull sweep over her…

Lifting the soft white wedding gown, Anjali and Payal helped Khushi step into it, lifting the lace and tulle over her arms, making sure the beading wouldn’t catch on anything…
She caught sight of herself in the mirror…”Wow…”
Payal smiled at Anjali proudly…”We are GOOD!”
As she laughed, she felt a yawn coming on…
“There is no time to feel tired now Khushi, 5 minutes to go!”
Anjali kissed Payal on the cheek and gave Khushi a careful hug as to not wrinkle her dress…”Khushiji, you look beautiful…I will be downstairs now, and I truly can’t wait to watch you marry my brother…”
“I love you…”
“Di.” Anjali smiled.
“I love you Di…” Khushi fought back tears as the three women hugged…
…………….
Arnav saw Anjali coming down the stairs and rushed towards her…”She’s okay right?”
“Ugh…Chote, enough! She’s fine, beautiful, gorgeous!”

Arnav kept fidgeting…

“Chote, she’s beautiful…and she’s all yours…now YOU have to try to calm down…”
Wrapping his arms around his sister, Arnav pulled her into a hug…”I love you Di…”

As brother and sister stood tall, a soft drift of music began playing…
Payal came into view first…
Anjali smiled at her friend, and Arnav gave a quick nod of approval, and his eyes instantly wandered again to search behind her…
Payal rolled her eyes and shook her head…
And as if floating on a cloud, Khushi appeared…
His breath caught in his chest at how resplendent she looked…
Anjali giggled as she heard her brother unconsciously mutter…”Whoa…”
……………….
It all happened so smoothly…
Khushi walked from the room…
Payal led the way…
And then, She was walking down the staircase, towards her future husband…
The moment she had always dreamed of…
Khushi finally locked eyes with Arnav…
Her own pulse raced at his strong, handsome exterior…
For a moment, she thought she was crying, as her gaze on him began to blur, but soon, she felt her knees begin to shake, and her sight fade…


…………….


Their eyes locked together …

“…you came back to me…” Arnav murmured…

Closer and closer…

She began to blink slowly…
And somewhere, somehow…he lost her…
Her eyes began to fog over, closing longer between blinks…
And he bolted from where he stood, reaching her just in time to catch her as she collapsed down the last two stairs, and into his arms…





PRECAP –  

Screams…
The dimply lit room was fogged up…
Vision became blurred as the cracked atmosphere echoed with harsh breaths…
Khushi’s mind went black as she felt her whole body shatter…
Never, ever would she be the same again…

    Oops, sorry I got caught up with some work.And now coming to the update.Mind blowing Sarah, Arnav caught both Shyam and Shhetal.And I think Khushi didn't faint due to her nervousness about the wedding, it has to do something with the powder that Sheetal was talking about.Poor Khushi, why did she have to go through this o her wedding day.I feel for both Arnav and Khsuhi.Can't wait to know what happens next.And just wanted to tell you, please don't stop writing.If anyone is not there for you, I will be there with you till the last day of your writing.Take care and update soon :)Wonderblake (IF)
