Arjun kept staring into Radhika’s eyes as she too did. Their hands cradling each other’s faces. Radhika came closer and finally captured his lips. Arjun kissed her back and surrendered himself to her, letting her take control. This kind of shocked her as it was him always who was dominant, being in bed or in office. Ok, you can say everywhere. And she loved it.
“Submissive” she thought as she smirked against his lips.
Radhika’s fingers traced up and down his front. From his chest to his abs. Arjun started to sweat as she kept going lower. He gasped as her fingers almost reached his V-line. She took her hand away as her tongue entered his mouth as she took advantage. She knew Arjun needed her and his surrender showed how much he needed it. Arjun after a while held Radhika’s face tight and pulled her closer. Now she knew he was going to take control and let him.
“Not for long babe” he hissed as he smirked against her lips, making her groan.
After a long hungry and passionate kiss they pulled away as they knew it was going out of hand. The s*xual tension around them was thick They knew how desperate they were for each other. These two months were hell for the both of them. Arjun trailed kisses down her jawline to her neck. He then buried his face at the crook of her neck and stayed there.
“I’ll complete what was left incomplete” he whispered as he trailed his finger down her full swollen blood red lips.
All she could do was bury her head in his chest. That belonged to her. Only her. It was only him that made her blush so much. The only man who could drive her insane with his slightest touches.
“I can’t wait till then” she whispered against his chest as she placed a kiss there.
Arjun pulled away and cupped her face “I promise I’ll do it” he said as he placed a kiss on her forehead.
“Radhika I’m sorry. For everything” he said.
“I forgive you Arjun” she whispered as he looked deep into his eyes.
Arjun pulled Radhika out with him and found Niti, Randhir, Neil and Sam standing a few feet away, discussing something. He went to them and stood in front of Randhir with a victorious smirk. Randhir understood what he meant. He saw Radhika smiling and smiled more.
“I won” Arjun said all proud.
“Oh God!! Finally!! You put down wnse I to these idiots brains. The work that had to be done in a day to months” he folded his hands and fake cried as he looked up the ceiling “and who was Bali ka Bakra? Me!!” he cried again as he pointed to himself.
Everyone understood it. Even Arjun and Radhika. He was playing cupid. It was all done to pull them closer and it worked.
“Sorry Randhir. We misunderstood you” said Sam.
“I really am sorry” said Neil.
“Me too. And thank you” whispered Arjun as he pulled him into a hug.
“Sorry that I screamed at you” whispered Radhika.
“Why you all so senti? It’s k. And Radhu, anything for you” smiled Randhir.
Niti who was having a hard time controlling her laughter, burst out laughing. She knew what he was up to. The whole of the office turned around and saw her laugh. Everyone’s faces had a look of peace, happiness. Arjun had tears. She laughed. After eight long years. Neil smiled as he had tears and Sam too smiled. Radhika smiled seeing Arjun have a guilt free face for the first time. Randhir who could control no more, went to her and pulled her into his tight, love filled embrace. She too hugged him back in the happiness that he had succeeded. She knew he would. His tactics and methods were like that. Always perfect. He was crying. He loved her so much that it pained to leave. But he had to. His time here was over and she belonged to Ankush. Ankush who saw this controlled himself. Randhir wiped his tears before anyone noticed and pulled away.
“Take care” he whispered as he cupped her face “keep smiling. Stay happy” he smiled.
“I’ll miss you. You too take care. Find yourself a girl” said Niti.
“Miss you too. My heart’s not on sale” he gave a sad smile.
“Who is she?” asked Radhika.
“She doesn’t love me. She loves someone else” he said sadly as he looked towards Niti and then Ankush.
“Give yourself and your heart another chance. You deserve the best” said Niti.
“I have no time to think about all that. I need to leave. Two months are done” said Randhir.
“But Randhir…” Niti was cut off by Randhir.
“Please Niti. No. Goodbye you all” he smiled weakly “Arjun I’ll kill you if Radhu cries again” he threatened as he turned to Arjun.
“I’ll never hurt her” said Arjun honestly.
Randhir turned around to leave. He went to Ankush and hugged him.
“Don’t let her. Please take care of her” his voice broke as he whispered.
Ankush was guilty “thank you” he whispered. He knew of his sacrifice now. Randhir too loved her.
Randhir left. Neil pecked Sam’s lips as he was so happy. Everything was in it’s place. Niti rolled her eyes as she was right next to them. The went off like in a jiffy. Arjun and Radhika reached home. Arjun locked the room and pulled Radhika to him. They shared a long kiss and Radhika who was playful bit his lip.
“Ready?” she whispered breathless against his lips.
“Someone’s desperate” teased Arjun as he smiled.
“Shut up. I want to enjoy your love. As your WIFE” she whispered stressing on the word wife.
He knew what she meant. He pulled out the wedding locket out of pocket and held it out to her.
“Why don’t you help me?” she smiled.
Arjun put it on and filled her hairline with vermillion. Radhika’s happiness had no bounds. She hugged him tight and didn’t want to let go. He picked her up and threw her on the bed and looked as if he forgot what he was supposed to do and looked clueless which irked Radhika. He was teasing her.
“What was I supposed to do?” he asked as he rubbed his chin.
“Shut up and get to work” she pouted as she opened her arms wide.
“Love me Arjun” she whispered.
That was more than enough for him. He walked to her and pulled her to his embrace and fulfilled his wife’s demands.
Bird Song was a happy company since then. Every single person would talk of Randhir’s motive and laugh out loud. Ankush was excited as Ahana’s birthday was coming. But was scared at the same time. He knew they wouldn’t celebrate. Saral. The air was still thick. The tension. Where was he hiding?
“Bhai can’t we ask them shift to Mumbai ASAP. We can celebrate little Ahana’s birthday too” Radhika suggested.
“You think that’s gonna work?” asked Ankush as he cocked up his eyebrow.
“It’s for safety” she started off.
“Radhu I’m watching over. It’ll be fine” he said.
“Ok” she said as she left his cabin.
But none of them had positive vibes. They were scared for their families. Niti knew to what extent Saral could go. She was scared for Radhika more than the family. They just carried on with their works. Niti kept in touch with Vaibhav, asking him about Saral. Bit no positive response. The team as losing hope. They started to break apart. Dissolve. The security system started to leave. They thought Saral would never come back. Niti begged them to stay and some of them did just for her. But that strength wasn’t enough to tackle Saral. A maniac like him. The Mishras and Joshis were so upset that they couldn’t celebrate their princess’s first birthday. They wanted it to be special. But Riddhima had suggested to celebrate it after the tension was clear.
“Ankush please ask them to shift” said a concerned Niti.
“Why are you so concerned?” he asked.
“Cause I know to what extent Saral can go” she replied.
“They’ll never listen” he sighed.
“Oh, so you’ll let them be?” she screamed.
“Then never ever regret if something happens. Never ever!!” she screamed as she pointed her finger at him and left in a huff.
Ankush sat back as he closed his eyes. She was right. Time was passing. He didn’t want to regret. Everyone’s heads were going in circles thinking of it. Though they put up a smile, that didn’t mean they had no fear or tension.
There were nee candidates that had to be picked. Each of them needed two in their team. So, ten in total for the five of them. Preparations were on. Full swing. Applications flooding. There were 25 applications that were handpicked and called for the interview.
The 25 of them assembled in the waiting room after a week’s notice. Some nervous, some confident, so.e being overconfident and some who were normal. Niti and Sam who were passing by, saw them through the window and left. Niti saw one of them and smiled. The 25 of them had to face the five of them. From there, 10 will be filtered. Boy, that was going to be fun.
Arjun was busy. Just then a girl in her late twenties entered. She was in a formal suit and took her seat when Arjun gestured her to.
“So you’re Ms….” Arjun trailed off.
“I’m Sathya. Sathya Mohan” she answered.
The interview went quiet well. She answered almost all the questions that were asked by Arjun. He was impressed with the confidence she had. All the while Sathya kept blushing. Who wouldn’t? Sitting in front of her was the handsome Arjun Mehra. Arjun felt awkward, but brushed it off. But now, she had to face the other four. Especially Niti. The most twisted person. Deadly one you can say. Radhika was nice. Neil was a bit tricky. Sam was ok. It always depended on her mood.
Niti entered Arjun’s cabin without knocking and went to him with a file that had to be verified immediately. She put it in front of him and asked him to do so. Sathya as shocked to see Niti in Bird Song.
“Niti?” she whispered.
“Sathya ka?” she asked back as she turned around.
(Akka means elder sister in Tamil. The same in Kannada and Telugu too.)
Arjun who was looking through the file, looked up at the both of them and went back to the file.
“Inga enna pandringa?” Niti asked.
(What are you doing here?)
“Job. Obviously. I resigned. Inga annaku vela kedacha naala Mumbaiku shift pannom. Ennakum vela tevai. So.…” she replied.
(Job. Obviously. I resigned. My elder brother got job here, so we shifted to Mumbai. I too need a job. So….)
“Ok ok. How many are you done with?” Niti asked.
“I’m the first one” answered Arjun as he kept going through the file.
“So still the four of us left huh?” Niti smirked.
“Yes” clipped Arjun.
“All the best ka” wished Niti.
“How do you both know each other?” asked Arjun.
“We both were neighbours in Chennai. I worked for the rival company” Sathya answered.
“How are thata and paati?” asked an emotional Niti.
“They’re fine” smiled Sathya.
“Who’re the other four?” asked a now confused Sathya.
“Obviously the great Niti who is standing in front of you. Deadly one. Then my wife Radhika. And then my friends Neil and his wife Samaira” answered Arjun.
Sathya was now scared at the description Arjun had given about Niti. She looked up at her and gulped. Niti understood it by the look on her face.
“Ka he’s stupid. I’m not that bad and you know me” Niti pouted.
“Yes da. I know” she smiled a little.
“Here’s the file” said Arjun as he gave it to Niti.
“Best of luck ka. Finish up and come soon” said Niti as she smiled a little.
“Thank you” she smiled. She was happy to see Niti smile. It gave her more confidence.
Niti left. Arjun asked her to leave as her interview was over and asked her to go to the other four wishing her luck. He carried on with the others.
Some of them were scared of Sam more than Niti. Her mood swings. People who went into Sam’s cabin would come out running. This made the others waiting get scared. Niti and Neil had to calm her down. The interview went on for two days. Sathya managed to impress Niti well. The others were happy with her too. Ten of them chosen. It had to decided who’d take whom. Or the newbies can choose.
In a dark place, there were faint humming noises heard. There was a person on bed humming and shaking his legs. At last his eyes shot open and he smirked. It was nine other than Saral.
