"I am going to kill him!" I said entering his company.
It is very small, and I know that maybe because this is just a branch of his original company, which is in Mumbai. I heard Kavya and Dad following me.
"Rajeev! Don't do this." Kavya said, holding my hand.
"Don't stop me, Kavya! How could he do this to us?" I asked her reaching the receptionist.
"We will deal with this by having a normal talk with him and control your anger." Dad said looking at me.
I reluctantly nodded and followed behind them towards that person's cabin. Dad knocked on it and entered it after we three took long deep breaths.
When we went inside we saw three chairs in front of his table with three cups on the table. And he is looking at us with a cold glare.
Looks like he already knows we are going to be here. Of course, he would as we received the notice just now right. And we would definitely rush here, which will be carried out by anyone in our place.
"What are you waiting for? Have your seat and some tea." He arrogantly told us.
I fisted my hands but sat down along with them. He just sat there in front of us and gazed at us like he is testing how we will break in front of me.
"How could you do this to my company?" Dad asked in a strong voice.
"Did you forget my last words when I was leaving?" he asked back coldly.
"But we thought you told them in hurt and not actually meant them." Kavya replied in a whisper.
"You know me Kavya. I never tell something if I don't mean it from the start. Well, it looks like you forgot our days." He said shaking his head.
"You Rascal!" I shouted fisting my hands.
"Don't forget you are talking to literally your boss." He said glaring at me pointing out that he has 60% of the shares belonging to our company.
"How did you buy the shares from our relatives?" Dad asked him confused.
"Who doesn't want extra money right?" He asked raising an eyebrow.
"Why did you send notice to dissolve the company? You are the major shareholder now we know we are just working under you literally. So what else do you need?" I asked him confused.
"How were you chosen for Kavya?" He asked, which is completely out of the question.
"Arranged marriage!" I replied calmly.
"How did he find you?" He asked me.
"I need not answer your question." I replied, rolling my eyes.
"Just tell me!" he insisted.
"I was already working as a managing director at that time." I said looking at him.
"What about your parents?" he asked curiously.
Immediately something tugged me. I cannot forget them, and I still miss them along with my little sister.
"They are dead!" I replied, closing my eyes.
"I am really sorry about them, but lucky you." he said with normal expression.
"What?" I shouted at him.
"If they were present and this man sitting beside you would have never accepted you to his daughter pointing out some negative points in them." He replied glaring at Dad.
"What your Dad did is not a small thing." Dad said looking at him.
Within a second his look changed completely cold, which is nothing but a little scary. Rajeev! He is younger than you so don't get scared like that.
"Did anyone else knows about my threat other than you three along with your mother?" he asked Kavya.
"No one!" she replied.
"Good! Now let's discuss what I am going to do about your ex-company." He said getting up.
We three closed our eyes, waiting for his real torture, which we just got to know that we still didn't come across that.
"I will sell the shares little by little, which will be bought by my people only of course. But I will sell them at a very low price like really low. Because of which the face value of them falls along with the real value and the value of your company will reduce, which will reduce the profits eventually. Then I will sell the company and do you know what will happen?" He asked when we tried to adopt what he is actually saying.
"By that time, that time I won't be the majority shareholder as I will spread them very little among everyone. When I dissolve the company at that time, then the creditors and all the other debts along with bank loans need to be paid. Most of which is actually done by major shareholders. By that time, the major shareholders will be none other than Mr&Mrs Shukla and... Navya." He said and then it struck us. He is trying to destroy us.
We remember we three have each 10% shares belonged to us. Mom and Dad have 5% each. However, we have some other way, and we will be able to pay somehow. We all have savings, which can be utilized for sure.
Looks like we three are thinking the same, so we didn't show him any weakness. He looks surprised seeing this.
"Impressive! So this doesn't affect that much then well I always have a Plan-B." He said smirking.
"Everything will happen in the same until the dissolving thing except one thing, and that is I will not dissolve it. Before spreading them, I will take the important files of the company with me, which is my right, and I can do that. Then in one day, the shares will be spread all over and then there will be fraud happening with the use of those files. Doing fraud is a very bad thing ok. Because if we do that, then all the shareholders and stakeholders fall on the owners. Then those owners are sent to jail you see. Who will be the owners at that time?" He asked with an evil glint in his eyes and stood in front of us.
"Mr&Mrs Gupta and Mr&Mrs Shukla." When he said that we started thinking how will we come out of this.
I have some lawyer friends, so I am confident we can get the bail. I looked at Kavya and saw her placing her hand on her stomach. I closed my eyes in pain because all this will affect our baby about which no one knows.
"And then... Navya." Hearing her name we all shouted "No!" at a time.
Then we saw the victory glint in his eyes. This is what he wanted and what is better than our precious one. She is just like my little sister who is no more in this world.
"Suhas! If you are doing this for revenge, then just hear me out. I tried to let you know that I am going to get married, and I called you many times. I even tried telling that to your mother, but she just glared at me and moved away from me whenever I went near her." Kavya said pleadingly.
"That's because your dad here kept a condition that I should not meet or talk to you. And my Mom what else will she feel when she knows that because of one girl, I left her all alone." He shouted at her.
"Do you want anything else instead of all this?" Dad asked after a few minutes.
"I want... Navya." He replied looking at us.
"How dare you?" We all shouted.
"I mean to say I want to marry her." he said, stopping us raising his hand.
"And make her life hell? No way!" I said, shaking my head.
"Why would her life become hell just because she will get married to me? Are you still playing my Dad did this and that to me?" He asked, raising an eyebrow and folding his hands.
"I don't care what your dad did. But we know that you want to marry her just as revenge on us, which will hurt her." I replied fisting my hands.
"You may even be wrong in that conclusion." He said after a few minutes.
"How?" We three asked him at a time.
"I may be wanting this just to rub it in his face that he finally made me his family which he didn't want two years back. It is a possible scenario." He replied looking at Dad.
That is quite possible! I started thinking and then I heard the most unexpected thing from Dad's mouth.
"Is contract marriage ok for you?" Dad asked him making both Kavya and me shout at him "Dad!"
"That is totally out of the question. I want to be married to her forever." This reply is also unexpected from Suhas.
"Anyway, you guys have time until tomorrow morning. Think about it." Saying that he opened the door.
"But that's really little time." Dad shouted at him.
"So? I am not offering some vacation planning here for you to Rome around on your holidays. This is about your lives, and mostly Navya's so this is all I can give." He said.
We didn't know what to be done, we three left the cabin dropping our heads. This is not how we actually expected. We thought he was going to dissolve it, so I immediately made some calls to get work from outside to lead our lives and rub it on his face when he tells us which will be a triumph over him.
But those things are out of the question now. He planned so much, and we didn't even feel it.
"Dad! Why did you ask for a contract marriage?" Kavya asked Dad when we got inside my car.
"I just thought of that in one year she could be out of his clutches, and then we would have found some other best person for her." Dad replied sighing, and we both shook our heads.
We reached the house and explained everything to Mom because of which she broke down.
"What should we do now?" I asked, looking at them.
