I came back home, Rohit was having his coffee, he asked me to join him. I was very tired so thought it was a good idea. We were enjoying our coffee and chatting. He asked me, "When will you have to go to your college?"
"I will have to join the college from Monday. I can't miss my practicals. They are very important. My exams are approaching and they will start next month. Then I have to do my internship " I was doing my post-graduation in Clothing and Textile.
"Priya have you told your friends about this marriage?" He asked casually.
"No I haven't and I don't even know how to tell them, they will shout at me that I didn't even call them," I said
"It's ok they will understand.'
"Ha, easier said than done..... it is not that easy Rohit. How would I explain this situation to them? They would think that I am joking..... or hiding things from them." I said taking deep breaths.
"Yes, of course, I think you are right, it is really difficult to make them understand. They will think that you have lost it. Such a bad choice. They will ask you why did you marry that khadoos ( arrogant) man when you could get married to any Jolly natured man, like me?? "
He winked at me. I smiled at his comment and then he said, " I think you should get your eyes checked ."
"But why? My eyes are perfect."
" I know sweetheart your eyes are beautiful. I am talking about your eyesight, please get your eyesight checked. I think you can't see properly." He said while laughing.
" hey!!!! why are you saying that my eyesight is perfect."
"Well, in that case, make an appointment with a psychiatrist because I think you really need treatment for you have chosen to marry my brother. Hahaha." Now he was laughing like a lunatic.
"Oh shut up" I rolled my eyes and said, but he kept on teasing me.
I threw up a cushion at him, but he ducked, then he threw up a cushion at me and it hit me. He said, " See you can't even throw a cushion at me, your eyesight is not perfect please get them checked. "
" It is too much now Rohit I will kill you." I glared at him.
"For that, you have to catch me. Come on, catch me if you can." He challenged me.
I ran after him and all of a sudden the door of the room opened and Rahul entered. He was between Rohit and I. I tried to stop myself but as we were running very fast, I couldn't stop and banged hard into him.
He caught me but due to impact, we both fell on the carpet. I was on top of him. my hand plastered to his hard chest. I was too shocked to react. I should have moved immediately but it seemed as if my body was paralyzed. He was holding me and was looking at me with shock. None of us moved.
Just then mom and aunty entered from the door and saw us in that position. But we were oblivious of the fact.
Rohit coughed and said, "What are two of you doing. Come on, we understand that you got married only yesterday, but pls control your emotions. You have a big comfortable room. please go there, don't corrupt the innocent soul like me." Mom and aunty burst out laughing.
I got very embarrassed, I tried to get off him and I started saying, " No no...it's not what you think... it's not, what it looks like...I am sorry." I just didn't know what to say. I was blushing profusely.
Rahul was glaring fiercely at Rohit and he was laughing like a possessed man.
Aunty said, " it is ok... He is just pulling your leg."
Colour of my face must have been red as a beetroot. I just ran upstairs to our room. All three of them laughed loudly and Rahul went to study throwing cursing words at Rohit.
I just went to the balcony.
Aunty called me for dinner. I went downstairs but could not look at anyone. My head was bent and I ate very quietly. Uncle asked me if I was ok and I just nodded. Then he looked at others. Rahul looked annoyed and Rohit and aunty were amused. It reminded me of the small cosy moment and I blushed like anything. As soon as the dinner was finished, I said good night to everyone and excused myself.
As I was climbing the stairs, I heard Rohit narrating the incident to Uncle. Then there was a roar of laughter.
I changed into my night suit and sat down on the couch with my laptop, as on Monday I had to go to college and had to finish an assignment. Moreover, I didn't want Rahul to sleep on the couch again. I will take the couch instead, as it was a bit small for his size. He is 6 feet two inches tall and had a moderately muscular body. It was not comfortable for him but I could sleep on it easily.
