INDEX   asr stroked khushi’s cheek distractedly as she lay among the crisp white sheets of the sprawling bed in the hotel room. they were both winded by all that had happened that day. he’d been sitting with her on his lap, holding her, gently nuzzling, letting a sense of calm return for they both needed it badly. without realising, they’d moved and settled into the comfort of the fluffy pillows, the plush mattress and the layers of fine egyptian…
