Chapter 7

  • 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'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.
