Arshi FF : Without You

without you: chapter 22

and i, infinitesimal being, drunk with the great starry void, likeness, image of mystery, felt myself a pure part of the abyss, i wheeled with the stars, my heart broke loose on a wind. ~~~ pablo neruda, poetry ~~~ she stood by the dark still pool. no breeze in the air tonight, ripples didn’t chase each other across the surface.   yet a storm rose in her, tossing her sense of peace, lashing into her; and in its violent whirling…

Hamesha ~ A heartbeat away : Chapter 4

INDEX Chapter 4 Khushi Kumari Gupta blinked as she placed a tiny golden stone bindi between her lovely arched eyebrows. She looked at her reflection in the mirror.

A pair of intricately designed kundan earrings dangled from her ears. She was ready to meet Arnav Singh Raizada. The doorbell rang and…

One starry night

How exactly had he ended up here? At midnight, in Lakshmi Nagar of all the places. It had all started when Aakash had come back, over enthusiastic, after his chat with her.. Khushi..

not cut out for love: chapter 3

INDEX   “what am i going to do,” thought khushi, as she distractedly played with the shiny stars made of plastic hanging above her bed… “i’ve never been on a plane before.” hawai jahaaz, the word went through her mind, flying at a bizarre angle, then zoomed off through the window, a screeching sound in its trail. khushi closed her eyes tight, “hey devi maiyya, yeh maine kya kar diya…” what have i gone and done now, she muttered. buaji…

not cut out for love: chapter 22

INDEX   “it’s so big, isn’t it?” khushi was staring at the water, her eyes fixed on the horizon, a stillness gathered over the ocean and the afternoon light suddenly lost some of its brightness. khushi was too engrossed in her contemplation of the vast stretch of waves and ripples and endlessness before her to notice. “what is?” asr asked casually from the hammock where he lay while khushi sat on the sand near him. “the samundar, arnav ji… there’s…

INDEX Chapter 3   “Ha..Lakshmiji aur us laad governor ki… sab unki galati hai. Everything is their fault. Na toh Lakshmiji aap beech mein aati na toh hum takrate aur na toh.. What does he think of himself?“   Khushi Kumari Gupta put down Lakshmiji, who had been busy with leaves and Khushi’s hair, and sat down on the stairway.

INDEX faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason to believe. ~~~ voltaire~~~ “khushiii!” she woke up with a start and sat up in bed. arnav ji! no he wasn’t there. he was not next to her in their bed. he was in hospital, in a cold hard room with needles all over him and a pipe in his mouth, she heaved with pain as reality rushed in, rending the night. her eyes closed as if…

INDEX   “damn!” he cursed under his breath. his teeth clenched for an instant. fire glinted in his irises, his lips tightened. then he narrowed his eyes and looked at the laptop screen, willing the figures to mean something. this was important. he needed to get this done today itself, they had to take a look at costs for blooms in agung, akash would be waiting for his go ahead and revisions. lavanya had to get some figures and trends……

not cut out for love: chapter 15

INDEX   he walked into shantivan looking grim and aloof. his lips were pursed tight and he walked ahead completely unaware of om prakash who had opened the door for him and greeted him with a smile, taking his brief case and laptop from him. he didn’t even see the whole family sitting in the drawing room, he saw nothing, he didn’t want to see anything now, he needed to be by himself… to not feel what he was feeling.…
