Chap 10
Acer meets ASR

Khushi was pacing downing the stair. Infact she was trying to go up to his cabin and take her bag but her guts betrayed her. She was pacing up and down when she eventually bumped into Aman.
"Oops I am so sorry Khushi ji" Aman said holding her hand.
Khushi looked at him and rubbed her foot which was stumped by him.
"Whats wrong?" you look tensed? Aman asked her
I am fine Arnav Ji. Mera matlab hai aman ji.
Aman raised his eyebrows.
"You called ASR Arnav ji?" aman questioned her
"Haan to?" she replied jerking her shoulders.
Aman nodded no "just asking"
Aman was about to go to ASrs room when khushi called him "Aman ji ek minute"
Aman turned back.
Khushi came forward fiddling with her dupatta "Who baat yeh hai ki Acer is stuck"
Khushi gestured with her eyes pointing towards Arnav's chamber "Wahan" (there) inside the cabinet. She pouted.
Aman: Cabinet? Khushi what are you saying? ASR is stuck in a cabinet?
Khushi: He has been locked.
Aman: LOCKED? ASR is locked inside a cabinet?
Khushi: Haan Aman Ji
Aman was about to run to his room when khushi pulled him.
Aman: What?
Khushi: arnav ji ko mat bataiyega please.
Aman was hell confused now.
Hi! Aman Bhaiya
Khushi turned to see a sweet teenager with a equally cute girl in her lap entering AR.
Aman waved her and side hugged. She pulled the baby's cheeks and kissed her saying "you are looking so pretty gul"
Girl: Where is your boss?
Aman: I don't know. He looked at khushi who was staring at them now.
Girl: What do you mean by you don't know?
Aman: Well lets go to his chamber and check.
Khushi smiled at the girl and touched Gul's cheeks.
Gul frowned a little when khushi did that.
Khushi immediately pulled back and stayed rooted where she was.
Arnav called in the reception.
Khushi was standing right there so she picked up.
Khushi: Haan?
She looked here and there.
Khushi: Arnav ji, no one is here.
Khsuhi almost tripped in panick and hoped two three stairs together and was about to reach to his room, when he saw aman coming out taking gul in his lap.
Khushi gulped sensing the other girl would be inside his chamber and'her thoughts flew to the incident that had just happened yesterday. The memories were still raw in her mind.
She gulped few more times, feeling disgusted about the fact that he can be so mean that he can have those things with such a small girl?
Finally after gathering some courage she Knocked.
Khushi entered without looking at him and turned to close the door. She turned and saw the girl sitting on his lap munching chocolates.
Khushi immediately looked down.
Girl: Bhaiya! Is she new?
Khushi immediately looked up.
Arnav who was a little busy typing something on his mobile looked at khushi but without saying anything he continued to type.
The girl waved her hand in the air and introduced herself "Hi! I am Misha and you are?"
Khushi smiled at her throwing an apology look towards arnav who was still busy and did not even notice her looks.
"I am khushi, khushi kumara gupta"
Misha immediately stopped chewing her chocolate making an "O" with her mouth, gulping down the chocolate lump, measuring Khushi top to bottom finally said Hi! And wave before her.
Misha's POV "ok so this is Khushi, I think bhaiya was blabbering her name only yesterday night. Interesting" she licked her rest of the chocolate while throwing an amazed look towards Arnav, who was still very busy to understand his sister's thoughts.
Arnav still looking at his phone said "Where is your note pad?"
Khushi's eyes widened
Misha frowned
"I am asking you Miss Gupta, where the hell is your note pad?" arnav barked.
Misha looked at Khushi and khushi gulped in fear.
Arnav shot a pathetic look towards her "What?"
"What the hell are you trying to do since morning taking out kitten's voice Miss Gupta?
Arnav has now lost it. He slipped his chair back making misha stand and marched towards her and grabbed her shoulders.
"Do you think this is a joke Miss Gupta?"
Khushi immediately nodded no
Khushi closed her eyes practically collapsing in his arms.
Kushi's POV "Khushi tu to aaj gaya"
Arnav turned back and looked at Misha.
Misha pointed towards his cabinet.
Arnav turned to look at khushi who stood rooted there closing her eyes tightly.
Khushi could feel him loosening his grip on her shoulder.
She opened her eyes and saw him fuming in anger.
Miss. Khushi. Kumari. Gupta. Pray to god that I don't find a kitten inside that cabinet where you have kept your bag ok? Otherwise you have had it..he said angrily and turned towards the cabinet and matched past her.
Khushi clutched her dupatta and looked at his retreating back.
He opened his cabinet and found a cute little kitten looking at him and meowing at him lovingly.
Misha: Awe!
He barked at the Kitten "GET OUT". I said get out right now.
The kitten was about to jump in fear when Khushi shouted "Arnav Ji, she Acer will get hurt"
Before the kitten could jump, Arnav caught hold of her.
He could fell her shivering in his arms due to fear. Just like khushi was shivering hugging him tight that night.
Arnav closed his eyes "Why did you bring here in the office? Damn it?"
Khushi gather some courage and spoke "because I couldnot keep her at home all alone.
Arnav Ji I cant. What if she escapes and get run down by a car?
But it matters to me Arnav ji. I have adopted her, I cannot leave her like that. She pleaded.
He was silent for sometime looking at her, holding the delicate form in his palm. He looked at the kitty and closed his eyes. He thought about something then replied.
Fine, keep her with the gaurds in the office during your office hours. Don't you dare bring her inside the office.
The gaurds will take care of her.
And this is the last time I am sparing you for doing such crazy things in the office. I don't want any nonsense further. Do you understand that? He said in an authoritive voice.
Khushi came forward and picked Acer. Arnav immediately turned his back not to show his emotions to Khushi which he was going through.
Khushi came and stood infront of him and said "thanks Arnav ji, thanks for understanding"
GET OUT NOW. He barked.

Chap 9
Acer in AR

The girl stood near the window, recapitulating the turn of event that took place in her life. She crossed her hands against her chest holding her OM locket looking up in the sky.
Few minutes' back she got a call from the hospital that Pulkit's state is detoriating and the Indian hospital's will not be able to look after him. But after few minutes she got a call from Aman stating that pulkit will be soon transferred to US for his check up. Fisrt she was shocked to listen to that. Why will Arnav Singh Raizada do so much for her? She is just an employee to him. Why is he going out of the way for her?
Her thought process was broken by a cry of a kitten. She looked here and there to find out where that little one is. She ran out of her house.
"where are you kitty?"
She looked inside the trash bin, she bent down to check under some taxi's parked there.
"Meaow…kitty where are you?"
She bent down to check below her scooty and found a really puffy cute kitty shivering due to fear.
She stretched her arms to pick her up but she moved back.
Khushi bent further to check her.
The kitty could see khushi's eyes now.
Khushi could see kitty's eyes glowing in darkess. A little simple escaped her lips and she spoke.
"Hey buddy, come out. I wont harm you. Look I will not touch you until you are comfortable"
Just then images of Arnav forcing on her came across her mind.
"He did not force me" she clutched her night kurti. "Stop thinking like that Khushi"
She remembered how he stopped when he came to know that she was a virgin. "Uff that pain", unbearable.
She remembered how he picked her up and placed her inside the tub and touched her private parts to stop the blood. His eyes.
His eyes said something to her that time. But what? She wondered. Why was he so restless at that time? Why was he so mad at me when he got to know that I am not a virgin? And why do a person care so much whether the girl is a virgin of not when he himself doenst have a problem having S*X with them without any commitment? Why is he so complicated? Why his action and his eyes talk differently?
Why am I thinking about his eyes? Wait why am I thinking about him at all? Why will I not think about him? After what he has done for me irrespective of why he did that at the first place but he did. He took pulkit's responsibility and now he is sending him to US for his further treatement. No matter what I do everything will be less infront of what he is doing. I will be indebted to him for the rest of my life. He is saving my love, my pulkit.
She closed her eyes and flashes of his accident still quite young in her mind. Pulkit did to save her life. She did to save his life. But Arnav Singh Riazada? What has he got to do with all these?
Khushi once again heard the kitten. This time she took her out holding her lightly so that she doesn't end up hurting her. Just like the way Arnav cared for her by giving her the meds. He was rough no doubt but he did care for her and today in the morning when she misunderstood him, he actually saved her from getting hurt.
Khushi smiled thinking about him and placed the tiny kitten on her palm then pecked her head lightly while the kitty brushed herself against khushi's soft cheeks and closed her eyes feeling the warmth in her hug.
Khushi happily took the kitten inside her house and placed her on the table.
She pointed her finger towards her and said "you better stay here, I will be back soon. She quickly took a cardboard box and placed her inside it so that she doesn't fall off from the table.
After few minutes she came back with some warm water and a towel. She picked the kitty and placed her on her lap.
"So kitty, where is your mother?" she said brushing her vigorously with the warm wet towel to clean her fur.
"Oh my baby" khushi pouted.
She placed the kitten on the table once again and looked at her. Khushi giggled.
"Hey buddy you are looking so lanky"
She dried her with her dupatta.
The kitten brushed off the excess water wiggling her full form and khushi was all Awe stuck.
She pointed her index fnger and the kitten placed her soft paws on her finger to play with her.
She quickly picked her up and kissed her while kitty stretched herself.
Khushi gave her some milk and biscuits dipped in it.
After placing her new found friend in the cardboard box and took her to her room.
Good night Acer
Meow!! She called before cubbling herself inside the box.
Khushi stepped inside the office again before time.
She looked inside her bag and scolded her. "you are not supposed to make noise Acer. Otherwise Arnav ji will through you out from here.
She patted her lovinly and walked straight to her bosses chamber.
She knocked the door. But there was no reply.
She opened the latch and popped her head inside to check.
She saw him resting his head on the back rest of his chair.
"Arnavji" she whispered.
Arnav opened his eyes and saw her popping her head.
Khushi bit her lips nervously "should I get your coffee Arnav Ji?
Khushi looked at arnav nervously.
What are you doing? He said in a calm voice gulping his anger.
What the hell is this?
Khushi nodded no frequently.
Khushi immediately slammed the door hard enough to break his ear drum.
WHAT THE? Whats wrong with her?
Khushi to herself: Hey DM raksha karna yeh Acer mujhe phasayega lag raha hai.
She placed Acer on the table and got her some milk from the coffee machine. She licked happily.
Khushi made his coffee and looked back to see Acer who wa happily taking a nap now on the table after finishing her milk.
She took her and placed her inside her bag and took the coffee and marched towards Arnav's room.
Knock! Knock!
"Come in"
Khushi came in and placed the coffee mug on his table and looked at him smiling.
Arnav took a sip and sighed.
"coffee is nice"
Khushi smiled more.
"Why are you smiling?", "Don't you have work?"
immediately her smile faded. "ji woh"
the less Arnav knew that she was in her mission talking to him. Yesterday night before going off to sleep she made up her mind that she will talk to arnav ji regarding pulkit's treatement in US.
And the less he knew that he was in his mission avoiding her.
"Par arnav ji?"
Arnav looked at her angrily. "GET OUT I SAID"
"Not before you tell me my seat. I don't have a seat arnav ji, where will I keep my things? I cannot more around like a vagabond. You should have shown my seat yesterday.
Arnav couldnot believe his ears now. Did she say something in front of him? Did she say it that long? How can she talk in front of the mighty ASR?
He saw her standing folding her arms against her chest waiting for him to respond.
"Whose office is this?" he said gritting his teeth.
"Haan?" khushi was dumbstuck
Khushi bit her lips and replied "yours"
Then you are telling me what I should do? You are telling me that I should have SHOWN you, your seat?
Khushi looked down.
Arnav got up from his chair and advanced towards her while she turned towards him.
He was standing right in front of her.
She was sandwitched between him and his table now.
She leaned back and he leaned on her.
"Fine Miss Gupta, if that's what you want. Arrange yourself a table and a chair right inside my chamber. You are going to sit here right in front of my eyes. Do you get it?
Khushi's eyes widened and her lips were perfect "O" shaped.
Arnav put his finger on her chin and closed her mouth.
Do it when I am not here. I will be leaving for an important meeting after an hour. Arrange your table before I am back. I don't want any nonsense after that.
He couldnot resist but to place a sweet peck on her cheeks before he slid the bag from her shoulder and took it with him.
Khushi held her hand up in the air and gulped.
Arnav opened cabinet and placed the bag inside and locked the door.
Khushi stood there helplessly.
How can she even say that she brought her kitten in the office? She dared not. Otherwise Arnav would have surely thrown her out of his office.
"You can take your back whenever you need it, as you cannot roam with the bag in the whole office. Here is the key. Keep it with you". Now get me another cup of coffee and meet Aman. He will brief you on your today's to-do list.
