I Feel Nothing REBOOT Part 15

November 11, 2013

 


“I’m…I’m Beautiful?” Khushi asked weakly.

Arnav stared deep into her dark eyes…”mmmhmm…extremely beautiful…”

“I…you…” Khushi just stuttered around words…

“I love you”…Arnav just said simply

Khushi focused on his eyes…


I love you too…


But couldn’t bring herself to say it…


But Arnav saw it…

His heart leapt in his chest…


LOVE.

……..
 

Later that night, the whole family were together in the lounge talking…

They had all spend a relaxing night together…


Arnav and Khushi had a very hard time concentrating…


They couldn’t take their eyes off each other; and one person in particular hated this with vehemence…


Ofcourse when Anjali had heard about Shyam’s new injury she was worried sick, but was still trusting in her brothers advice…


Akash blindly told her that he had an infected throat…


She made sure Shyam was okay but kept her distance…


Shyam didn’t particularly notice since his attention was on someone else…

 
Khushi was very uncomfortable seeing Shyam constantly gawk at her, and Arnav observed this.

Khushi insisted clearing and Arnav stayed back to help her…


She placed plates on the counter and turned to find Arnav hovering over her…


She tried to escape around him but he backed her back up against the bench…


Her breathing increased…


The family were just in the other room, and anyone could walk in on them…


She looked around furiously, but Arnav was lost in her and he slowly leaned down, sensually placing his open mouth on her neck and started sucking firmly…


Her  breath caught at the pleasure. 


It always did. 


He was hers. 


Her heart was his and he would always keep it safe…


The depth of his love still mesmerized her…


His mouthed moved up her neck, to her jawline, to her mouth…


Hust before his lips touched hers, he moved closer pressing his lower body against her pelvis…


As she gasped in surprise , Arnav slid his tongue into her mouth…


If they were alone he’d already have her half-naked and spread out on the kitchen counter…


Khushi’s soft moans, and the way she pressed herself so intimately against him drove him up the wall.

If only they were alone.
 
He pulled his mouth away from hers…“Khushi, if you keep making those sounds and I’m going to go through the roof…”

“Sounds?”

“Yeah. Moans and little whimpers in the back of your throat. Drives me crazy.”

“I…I do?…”

“…you do…. It seems to come naturally when I kiss you..”


Sliding his  hands once more to her face, he leaned in and pressed his mouth to hers.


Such soft, full lips.

He angled his head and kissed her deeply and she whimpered for what only he could give her.

“There it is again,” he murmured against her lips.

Her breathing sped up as his hands slid over her rib cage.


Her stomach jumped at his touch.


Their eyes met, locked on each other as he continued his exploration of her skin.


Her saree bunched under his hands as he pushed it up toward her breasts, his thumbs lightly scraping her already sensitized skin.
 
“Khushi?” Payal called…

Arnav slowly pulled his mouth off hers just as Payal walked in…

Khushi was totally dazed…

Arnav smiled at how she was responding to him…

“Khushi?”

But Khushi was still staring at Arnav…

“Did I come at a bad time? Were you two discussing something?……KHUSHI!?”


Payal held Khushi’s shoulder shaking her slightly…

“Huh?… Jiji? Woh…i’m sorry….”

“It’s alright Khushi…come, we’re discussing the ‘baby names’ list again…”


Payal pulled Khushi with her to the next room…

But Khushi stared back at Arnav who had a hungry, sensual expression on his face…


He blew her a kiss, and she was out of sight.

………………..

Arnav walked to the poolside quickly…

He spoke to the guards asking if there had been any suspicious activity…


His eyes remained stern as the officers gave their report….


Nothing out of order…


Then why do I feel so unsettled?


As Arnav entered the lounge he saw that one person was absent…

Shyam…

Arnav pulled akash aside and asked where he was…

“Bhai, The guard followed shyam up to his room…don’t worry”

Arnav went up to make sure.


He unlocked the door and stepped into shyam’s room…

Shyam just stood there glaring with fury at Arnav.

“so…jijaji…divorce papers…? Pathetic…”

“saale saab…that’s not all…”

“What do you want to do!? Make her snap!? If you truly care about her at all, just leave her ALONE!”

“I CAN’T do that…I want her. I will get her”

Arnav clenched his teeth…”no. You won’t”

Shyam lifted a mask onto his face…


“what are you doing?”

“one of the final parts of my plan…” and Shyam threw a tear gas bomb on the floor…

Arnav started to cough and choke, and then with a huge smack, Shyam hit Arnav to the ground…

Just before Arnav lost consciousness, he tried to yell out for help…


 


……………….

Khushi kept looking towards the stairs, searching for Arnav…

“Khushi?”

“oh…I’m fine jiji…I just…I don’t know where…”

“Help!!!”

Khushi’s eyes jumped up and saw Shyam standing at the top of the stairs yelling…
 
Everything that happened from that moment went in slow motion…

She bolted up the stairs and saw Arnav unconscious on the floor.

She fell to his side…


“Arnavji! Arnavji!!”


He didn’t move.


The paramedics arrived and she watched in terror as they tried to wake him too, but he still didn’t move.


Oh my God, I’ve lost it all.

She couldn’t go closer…

She couldn’t let his pain be the last thing she saw…

I HAVE TO GET OUT OF HERE!!!!


She turned on her heel, and ran to the door, only to have guards stop her from leaving…


Unable to think clearly, she threw a vase at a window and climed out…


Her hands shook, her body numb…


As soon as she was clear of the house, she ran.

The Night wind was burning her eyes.

But she kept running.


Her heart was breaking at the thought of Arnav no longer being with her…


And she ran faster…


 


 
Finally spent, she collapsed on the side of the road…

…………

 
Shyam gave a smile of victory when he saw Khushi slip away from the room…

The paramedics were making progress with Arnav, and so he crept out, in search of his prey…

………….


Arnav’s head was pounding…

He heard voices chattering incoherently…

“how did this happen? Are his sugar levels too low?”

“no he has tear gas in his system…do you know how this happened maam?”

“tear gas?!”

Arnav opened his eyes…


He started coughing slightly as his raspy voice interrupted…”yes Di, it was tear gas. Jijaji threw one on the ground and then hit me to stun me……” 


Arnav looked around the room…”Where…” he rubbed his eyes…”WHERE IS KHUSHI!?” he yelled furiously

“She’s just here Bhai…” but when Akash turned, she was missing…

“I’m sure she’s just gone to your room, I’ll check… ” Payal said calmly

Anjali began to cry, “What do you mean Chote!? Shyam attacked you!? What’s going on!?”


“Di, Shyam is a filthy, two timing liar. He has been lying to you for years now. He hurt Khushi, he hurt me, and he’s hurting you…He loves Khushi and he is trying to get her by any means…”

Anjali stood there stunned.


She knew something had been wrong, but not this!?


How could someone she loved so much be so evil!


Arnav anxiously stood up, shaky on his legs, and held Anjali …

“Di, i’m so sorry…” he said fidgeting around, needing to know where Khushi was…


“I can’t believe this!” Nani said in shock…


Arnav was now losing all patience…”WHERE IS KHUSHI!? Akash!? PAYAL!? WHERE IS SHE!”

Payal came running in crying…”I can’t find her! I don’t know where she’s gone! But there is a shattered window just above the stairway…” she said with terror…

“WHERE IS SHYAM?” arnav hissed.

“…he left the house about 15 minutes ago sir,” said one of the security guards…

Arnav felt his strength returning…”You LET him fucking leave!? WHAT!!?! “

“Sir you told us that he could leave. But we stopped Mrs. Raizada from leaving…she went to her room.”

“but she’s not there now!” Payal’s eyes were filled with alarm, and Arnav’s heart was racing…

“We will check the grounds sir.”

“NO.” Arnav said standing straight…”You will check the streets. She is trying to run. But I won’t let her get far.”

………..

As Khushi woke, she felt a stinging sensation in her head…

She had collapsed onto the hard road and grazed her head,  the shooting pains now knifing through her…


She saw a figure approaching her…getting clearer…clearer…
 
SHYAM.

Screaming in horror, she grimaced in pain as she pushed herself up with her bleeding hand…
 
“I told you I would take you away from him…” he grinned at her …
 
Khushi sprung up, and bolted down the street…”No! NO!!!! Help!!!!! Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

………….

Arnav sprinted to his car…

“where would she go sir?” Asked the police officers.

“she would just run. She wouldn’t think. She’d just go…” Arnav said furiously…”just spread out. And FIND HER…and…if you find Shyam, TAKE HIM TO JAIL.”

“Ofcourse sir.”

Arnav slammed his foot on the gas, and took off down the street….

………….
 

Shyam caught up to Khushi…

It was late at night and the roads were quite deserted… 


“NO!” her eyes were dripping with tears…”NO! GET OFF ME!!!”


He pulled her off the street into the nearby trees…

 
She hissed in disgust as his hands came around her…

He held her roughly and pulled her hair hard to expose her neck, and in a frenzy he bit and sucked monstrously…


A sick and agonizing sob came out of her as she lost all feeling again…..


“no no no….stop! Stop!!!” she kept repeating…


Her mind flashed to arnav making love to her… his soft touch…


She needed him….


She had said awhile ago that she didn’t even know if God listened to her, but now…”God! Help! Arnavji!!!!!!!!!!”

…………….
 

Arnav had driven for awhile and was now outside his car screaming out for her, scanning the street for any trace….

Then he heard her voice…”God! Help! Arnavji!!!!!!!!!!!!”


He darted around, trying to find which direction her cry came from…


“KHUSHI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” 


“Arnavjiiiiii!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”


And he ran in the direction of her scream…

…………….
 

The second Shyam heard Arnav’s name come out of her lips he became furious…

He lifted his knife from his pocket and held it to her neck….


“don’t you ever say his name when I’m kissing you!” he pushed the blade harder against her skin…


“His is the only name I will EVER say!”


Khushi screamed again using all her strength……”Arnavji!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”


Shyam kept the knife at her throat, and bunched his other hand brutally into her chest…


She continued to whisper Arnav’s name, and every time Shyam bit her harder…

 
Arnav heard her scream again….

His legs wouldn’t move fast enough…


He was getting closer…


He knew Shyam had her…


His anger rose furiously….. 


Running, Listening…his heart begging God that she would be alright…….
 
And then he stopped dead in his tracks when he heard her shriek in pain…

His eyes turned ferral as he spun around and saw Shyam…Holding Khushi…Kissing her…Molesting her…And holding a knife to her.
 
He became primal.

He was prowling towards them…hate, rage and fury were in his eyes…

“LET. HER.GO….NOW!” Arnav’s voice was haunting.

Khushi looked up and saw him…


HE’S ALIVE!


“A…Arn…Arnavji…….”‘ 


His eyes hit hers…

“Khushi, keep yours eyes on me…I am here…” his eyes went back to shyam, “I SAID, LET HER GO.”
 
Shyam spoke emotionlessly…”ok…I think i will…for now…I’ve had my taste of her…now you can have what’s left…until I return for more…” and holding the knife in place, Shyam released his arm holding Khushi and let  her fall, the blade cutting her further…

And Shyam disappeared into the darkness…


Khushi screamed in pain as she felt blood oozing down her neck…


She braced herself as she prepared for a hard fall…
 
But it never came…

Her heart stilled…


She was terrified to know who was holding her…


But as she looked up, she saw Arnav.


She completely shattered in his arms…

Arnav’s voice being drowned out by her cries…


Bile rose in his throat when he saw her neck…


His eyes widened in fear…


She was bleeding…a lot…


all rational thought evaporated, he was in a panic for her…


Lifting her quickly, he carried her to the car and laid her down carefully on the back seat…


She moaned in deep pain even though he was being so delicate…


He pulled off his shirt and used it to put pressure on her bleeding as his other hand fumbled hurriedly to get his phone out of his pocket …


He called for an ambulance all the while holding pressure on her wound.


He felt her  struggling  to keep her breathing  steady…

His voice picked up and he demanded that they come faster…


Finally hanging up, he brought his face close to hers, only to see her try to turn away but she could only whimper in pain…


“Arnavji…..”  her voice was gurgling…
 
“shhhhh sweetheart, help is coming….” he looked up…

DAMN IT! WHERE THE HELL ARE THEY!


His shirt was getting saturated with blood…


“Khushi just keep listening to my voice…I’m here…”

Khushi saw him trying so hard to keep calm and her heart was hurting for him…

If only …our…our love story was…was… a happy one…


She was unaware that she had whispered her thoughts out loud…

“Khushi…look at me…” but she kept her eyes away…”Khushi, you are my wife…you have my heart… Real love began with you…with Khushi…with happiness! Our love story IS happiness!! Because it has YOU! “

Arnav heard the sirens approaching…

“…the ambulance is here…”


Her breathing hitched…”D…don’t leave…me…pl…please…don’t…leave me…”


Arnav moved closer…”I will stay with you…I won’t leave your side…”

Khushi had tears streaming down her face…


Arnav lifted her carefully as the paramedics opened the back door to the ambulance.


He put her down softly, and the paramedics started their procedures…checking her vitals,  examining her wound…


Arnav’s eyes held Khushi’s for the entire drive to the hospital…


Everything swept by in a blur…


Once they arrived, Khushi was wheeled in on a stretcher and taken to the emergency room…


Her grip on his hand disappeared and Arnav shrieked in horror…”Khushi!? KHUSHI!”


The head doctor approached …”Mr. Raizada?”

“Yes! Please help her, don’t let ANYTHING happen to her do you hear me!?”

The paramedic behind him spoke up…”Mr. Raizada, she unconcious from the pain, she is alive!”


The doctor in charge tried to reassure him…”I will just examine her, please just try and be patient…”

“I’m staying.”

“It might be best if you just…”

“I AM STAYING.” He growled looking at Khushi laying there passed out from pain…

“Ofcourse.”
 
The doctor started to check Khushi’s neck, as a nurse checked her blood pressure…

“She has lost quite a bit of blood, which is why she has fainted…and I will have to give her stitches and bandage her securely…she will have to stay in hospital until she wakes, then we’ll assess her to see when she can return home.”
 
“I will be staying here with her. But I have to call my family to let them know she is safe…”

“ofcourse Mr. Raizada, you can make the call outside…”

“I’m not leaving her side….do you understand me? So if you don’t want me to use my phone here, I won’t, but I will need someone else to call for me…because I am NOT moving.”

The doctor was annoyed, but called out to a nurse…”…please get Mr. Raizada’s details and call his family for him……”


The nurse looked at Arnav and said, “you must love her very much…”

Arnav fell back on a chair near Khushi’s bed…


He was exhausted…”the word love will never be strong enough to say how I feel about her…”


Khushi’s hand was back in his and he gave it a small squeeze, then looked up at the doctor…”tell me she’ll be alright…my heart is going bezerk seeing her here like this…”


“Mr. Raizada. Her bleeding has stopped. There are no signs of any infection. She is breathing quite calmly. She will be fine…she will probably need a lot of help to overcome any signs of trauma though…”
 
“Excuse me? May we please speak with Arnav Singh Raizada.”

One of the police guards had arrived.


Arnav sat up straight and asked him to come in…


For the next half and hour, Arnav retold everything in detail of how Shyam had held Khushi with a knife at her throat and that Shyam had just disappeared…


Arnav was informed that the Police were out searching for him and that they would continue to keep guards at his house and at Khushi’s room at the hospital…
 
When the police finally left, he let out his tears.

Arnav looked at his wife…

He was suffocating with worry…

He had been holding her hand this whole time and now lifted his other hand to her face, gently kissing her on her lips…
 
Soon Payal and Akash had arrived and rushed to Khushi’s side, hurling questions at Arnav, but his mind was numb, all his thoughts in disorder…except for one. Khushi. 

Arnav sat back down beside Khushi’s bed…his eyes fixed on her…
 
Akash and Payal had given up trying to get through to him and went to talk to the doctor who informed them of her condition…
 
Arnav fell asleep and his hand slid off the bed away from Khushi…

He awoke with a start and jumped towards her.


She still looked pale, and he cursed himself for falling asleep…


He picked up her hand and kissed it, his tears dropping on her hand as he kissed and kissed her…


He kissed up her arm, kissed her cheeks, her hair, her forehead…


“Khushi…wake up jaan…please just let me see your eyes…I’m dying here…I need your eyes to shine light into mine…I need you Khushi…I don’t deserve it, I know I don’t …but my heart won’t stop loving you…and i need you, so i can keep living…”
 
Khushi heard Arnav’s voice…

My Arnavji…


But still,  she kept her eyes closed…
 
She felt his tears on her hand…

She felt him kissing her hand…
 
She heard him call her name…
 
Khushi was afraid to open her eyes, wondering if everything was a bad dream…

She remembered Shyam holding her…


She remembered  Arnav lying motionless, and the pain that spread in her heart…


She was just about to sink back into dreams when she heard…


“I’m dying here…I need your eyes to shine light into mine…I need you Khushi…I don’t deserve it, I know I don’t …but my heart won’t stop loving you…and i need you, so i can keep living…i need your love Khushi…”…


Overcome with emotion, her eyes flew open…
