Swasan FF: Would You Love Me The Same?
Well, as I told before I’ve changed the name from “I Love You” to Would You Love Me The Same? as I found out that there’s another fan fiction by this name. By the way, sorry for any mistakes in the previous chapter.
In case if someone missed out on the previous chapter, here is the link below:
Swara wakes up and finds the room beautifully decorated with her pictures, pictures with Ragini and, everyone else. But, she was searching for another picture. She looked upon all the frames but, she didn’t find the one she was searching for. Suddenly her eyes fell on the side table, which had the picture she was looking for. The picture was of Swara with Sanskaar where Sanskaar had held her from waist and she had a rose in her hand. She took the picture in her hand and looked at it. She was too happy. She placed it back and was about to get up when she saw a gift placed next to her with a note on it. She took the gift and read the note:
“Good Morning Ms. Naina,
So, Ms. Naina I’m pretty sure you must’ve understood everything. Yes, it was all a prank planned by all of us to surprise you. And, don’t even think that anybody marks proxy for me. I’m a good student, I attend my classes everyday. Now, you must have got to know what’s the gift. But, don’t open it. You’re supposed to wear it in the evening for the party. And, don’t panic about the accessories and all, it’s all there. Your second surprise for the day is over. I know you must be thinking what do I mean by “second”. So, if you want to know about that, get ready quickly and come down. And, please wear something nice as I know your taste is too bad. Just kidding, okay? Don’t fight with me today also. Okay, now get up and go to the couch.
She went upto the couch and found an orange salwaar. She picked it up and found another note. It said:
“Ms. Naina, please wear this. I will be more than pleased to see you wearing this.”
Hmm.. Nice. So, Mr. Sanki has done all this. Ofcourse who else will do. I’ll go, get ready quickly. What does he mean by second surprise? Has he planned out more surprises? I want to know. I’ll quickly change and go down. You need to look good and impress him. What impress! Bakwaas mat kar.(Don’t talk rubbish.)
After about half an hour she came down and looked around for Sanskaar. She said, “Where is Mr. Sanskaar Maheshwari now? But, why didn’t di give coffee today? Actually it’s good she didn’t. Otherwise she’ll again put salt and give. I’ll go and make it for myself.”
She entered the kitchen and was shocked. She saw Sanskaar wearing an apron and a chef hat and cooking. Swara came close to him and asked, “What is going on?” Sanskaar turned to Swara and shouted, “Suhu babes, Maa, Bhaiya, Bhabhi!”. “Why are you shouting in my ears?”, asked Swara. He again shouted, “Suhu babes, Maa, Bhaiya, Bhabhi!” “Uff Sanskaar!”, exclaimed Swara. Everybody came running and together asked, “What happened?” “You all are asking me what happened! I should ask and you all should answer. What is Shona doing in the kitchen on her birthday? And, secondly what are you people doing? I told you people she shouldn’t know about it.” “What shouldn’t I know?”, asked Swara. “Take her out”, said Sanskaar. Everybody dragged her out of the kitchen and went to the hall.
(Nothing happened in the hall)
Sanskaar came to the dining table after freshening up and called everybody. Everyone came and stood beside the table. Swara saw the table and asked, “What’s all this? Who prepared so much? That too all my favourites! Di? I love you di!” “I didn’t do anything. Yeh sab toh mere devar ne kiya hai”, (All this is done by my brother in law) replied Ragini. “Oh. Wait, what? Sanskaar did all this? How did you know all my favourites? You always told me you didn’t know to cook then how come? (Unaware of Sanskaar coming towards her) When did you wake…” Sanskaar put his hand on her mouth and said, “Saans le lo. Kitna bologi? Mujhe bhi bolne ka mauka do.” (Take a breath. How much will you speak? Give me a chance to speak.) He removed his hand and said, “You know I’m Sanskaar Maheshwari. So, I know everything. And, you’re my wife, I must know. So, Mrs. Swara Maheshwari your third surprise. I hope you like it.” Everyone settled down and were having their food. “It’s so tasty Sanskaar”, said Swara. Sanskaar smiled. Everyone finished their breakfast and went to their rooms.
Swara and Sanskaar came inside. As Swara was about to go Sanskaar held her wrist and said, “You look really beautiful today. I hope I wasn’t married. I would’ve given my heart straight away.” Swara smiled, turned around and said, “Oh! You’re married but, you look so young.” Sanskaar started moving towards Swara and said, “Acha?” (Is it?) Swara started moving back, she started stammering and said, “SSSanskaar wh..what ar..are you..you.. try..try..trying to..to..d..d..do?” She was stuck by the wall and gulped in. Sanskaar came close to her and pulled her towards himself. Swara looked straight into his eyes and rested her hands on Sanskaar’s chest. He lifted his hand up and adjusted the photo frame on the wall. He pulled back and asked, “Why are you so tensed? You’re sweating so much. What happened?” “N..n..nothing. I thought..”, “You thought?”, interrupted Sanskaar. “Nothing. I’ll be back”, replied Swara and she walked out.
I know tumhe kya laga Swara. Romance. Hmm. But, tumhare ijazat ke bina kuch bhi nahi karunga main. (I know what you thought. Romance. Hmm. But I won’t do anything without your permission.) I promise. I remember what you said yesterday. Romantic husband. Hmm.. Haha!
The hall was beautifully decorated with lights all over. There were balloons placed all over on the ground and light instrumental music filled the environment along with the noise of people talking around. Sanskaar was wearing a black suit with white shirt and a bow tie. Laksh was wearing a blue suit with white shirt but a normal tie. Ragini was wearing a blue saree with white embroidery work. (Basically, the couples wore clothes in coordination) Suhasini came to Sanskaar and asked, “Where is Swara?” “Kyun uska naam le rahe ho? Rehne do na. Jab tak nahi hai tab tak hi thik hai”, (Why are you taking her name? Leave it na. Till the time she’s not there till then only everything will be fine) Sanskaar sarcastically replied. “Ouch!”, exclaimed Sanskaar. Annapurna held his right ear tight and said, “You dare not speak a word against my daughter.” “Okay baba fine. See, there she comes.”, said Sanskaar. “Where, where?”, Suhasini and Annapurna excitedly asked. “Arey baba darwaaza band kiya hai. Patience rakho.”, (Oh god she has just closed the door. Have some patience.) said Sanskaar. He quickly signalled Laksh and Ragini. The lights were switched off and the spotlight was projected on the staircase. The staircase was covered with carpet and Swara slowly came into everybody’s vision. She was wearing the same black salwaar they had brought the day before with hanging silver earrings, light make-up and silver heels. (This is what Sanskaar meant by “match everything accordingly” the previous day on the call; the accessories) She was looking too beautiful. She climbed down the stairs while Sanskaar kept staring at her with his jaws dropped. Laksh came, closed his mouth and said, “Go and take her hand.” Sanskaar passed a genuine smile to him and walked towards the stairs. Swara came down the stairs and stood there. Sanskaar came to her, forwarded his hand and said, “Come.” Swara nodded her head saying yes and gave her hand. The lights were slowly switched on. Everyone came and greeted Swara. While she was busy thanking everyone Sanskaar took the mike and announced, “Good evening to all. I guess you all might be knowing that we are here to celebrate my wife’s first birthday after our marriage.” He took a breath and continued, “As I had promised you Shona, this will be your most special birthday so, here you go with your fourth surprise.” Swara asked with her eyes “And, what is that?” “Have a look at the entrance and you’ll know”, Sanskaar replied with eyes signalling towards the entrance. She looked towards the entrance and couldn’t control her excitement and happiness. She ran towards the entrance and hugged her parents. “Happy birthday beta!”, both of them greeted her. “Thanks a lot Maa and Papa. You don’t know how happy I am. It’s the best surprise today”, Swara said. “Credit goes to Sanskaar”, replied Sharmishtha. Swara lovingly looked at Sanskaar and said, “Thank you so much Sanskaar. It is really my best birthday.” “It’s not over yet”, said Sanskaar. “But, maa Kriti didn’t come?”, asked Swara. “Nahi beta, she told she has some work”, replied Sharmishtha. “Oh”, said a disappointed Swara. Sanskaar switched on the mike again and said, “Now, since everyone is here we’ll proceed towards the cake cutting ceremony.”
The waiters came with the cake and put it on the table placed in the centre of the hall. It was a chocolate flavoured cake. Swara was about to cut the cake but, stopped. She looked at Sanskaar and said, “You know I’ve never celebrated my birthday without Kritika (younger sister). This is for the first time.” “Sanskaar jiju ke rehte itni fikar kis baat ki!” (Why to worry when Sanskaar jiju is there!) Swara turned back to the voice and exclaimed, “Kritiii!!!!”. Swara and Ragini ran to her and hugged her tightly. After about 5 minutes, they broke the hug and went to cut the cake. Everyone clapped as she blew the candles and cut the cake. She took the piece and fed Sanskaar first. He was sitting on the top-most cloud. He came back to senses and took the piece from Swara. He too fed her the cake but, from the side from which he had bit. Slowly she fed everyone else.
“Now that the cake cutting ceremony is over we, I mean me and Ragini, would like to present a dance”, announced Laksh.
They romantically danced on the song “Tujhpe Fida” (From Heroine). After that Kritika came upon the stage and gave her performance on “Ek hazaaron mein meri behna hai” (From ). As her dance came to an end Ragini announced, “Now, I would like to call my beloved sister and my brother in law to present a performance in front of us.” “What? I don’t know to dance Sanskaar”, Swara said looking at Sanskaar with a hope that he might reject the request. But, to her surprise he said, “Ofcourse we will Bhabhi! How can a birthday party be complete without the birthday girl’s dance!” Swara was about to speak when Sanskaar looked at her and said, “You trust me right?” She nodded her head in a yes. “Fine then. Just maintain the eye contact. Everything else I’ll manage”, added Sanskaar.
Swasan performance on “Bol Do Na Zara” (From Azahar)
The spotlight fell on Sanskaar who forwarded his hand. Swara, who was standing at a distance spinned around and gave her hand. Sanskaar pulled her towards himself and held her tightly by her waist. Swara put her hands around his neck. They moved to the beat of the song. Sanskaar twirled Swara in the air. He then spun her holding her finger with his hand. He again held her tightly by her waist, made her fall and slowly picked her up. They again moved to the beat of the song. He lifted her up and slowly brought her down. They kept moving to the beat maintaining the eye contact. They were lost in each other’s eyes when everyone started clapping. “Behna aur devar ji, gaana toh khatam ho chuka hai. But, please apne “whenever, wherever” ka policy mat follow karne lag jaana”, (My sister and brother in law, the song has ended. But, please don’t start following your “whenever, wherever” policy.) Swara and Sanskaar quickly separated themselves and went down the stage. “Now, I would request all of you to make yourselves comfortable and have your dinner”, announced Laksh.
Ragini was talking to the guests when Laksh called her. She excused herself and came to him. She asked, “What happened?” Laksh pulled her under the staircase, held her by her waist and said, “Everybody is busy romancing except for us.” “I can’t see anybody romancing. Do you see anyone? I can only see people talking and having their dinner”, replied Ragini. “Didn’t you see your sister and my brother romancing and broadcasting it up there on the stage. Actually, you wouldn’t have noticed because you’re way too unromantic”, said Laksh. “I’m not unromantic Mr. Laksh Maheshwari!”, said Ragini. “Fine. Prove it then”, replied Laksh and pulled her closer. “Di, jiju..”, exclaimed Swara and turned around. “I swear I didn’t see anything”, said Swara and ran away. Laksh quickly left Ragini making her blush. Ragini said, “Stay away from me until the party ends.” Laksh made a puppy face. Ragini ignored him and went away. It was 10 when the guests started leaving. The party finally got over at 10:30.
“Aj toh sach mein bada maza aaya”, (Today was really fun)said Suhasini. “Haan didi. By the way, Sharmishtha ji you all can stay over here itself for some days until your house is completely cleaned. Isn’t it?”, asked Annapurna looking at Durga Prasad and Suhasini. “Ya sure”, replied Durga Prasad and Suhasini. “No, no, Annapurna ji. We’ve booked rooms in the hotel. We’ll stay there.” “I’m not listening to anything. You have to stay here”, replied Annapurna. Sharmishtha was about to speak when Suhasini interrupted and said, “Okay then, let’s go and sleep. Anyways, it’s late. Everyone must be tired.” Everyone went to their respective rooms while Annapurna guided Sharmishtha and Shekhar to one guest room and Kritika to another one which were next to each other.
Ragini removed her earrings and was cleaning her face when Laksh came back after changing. Ragini was about to go to sleep when Laksh held her wrist and said, “Itni bhi kya jaldi hai?” (What’s the hurry?) and pulled her towards himself making her back face him and hugged her. “I told you to stay away from me”, replied Ragini while blushing. “That was only till the party. Now, that the party is over, I’ve all the rights to come close to you”, said Laksh. He went closer to her, moved her hair to one side, kissed her neck and said, “You looked the prettiest today.” “Thanx a lot for the compliment but, right now I’m too sleepy. So, we’ll talk tomorrow”, replied Ragini. “Raginiii!! I told right you’re way too unromantic”, complained Laksh. Ragini turned towards Laksh, came close to him and kissed on his cheeks. “And, you’re over-romantic. So, good night. Sweet dreams”, saying this she went to sleep leaving Laksh smiling. He said, “Good night my love. Sweet dreams.” He went to the bed and slept beside her.
I guess I should thank Sanskaar once more. After all he did so much. It was my best birthday Sanskaar. Thanks for making it so special. I’m really lucky to have you in my life. I’m glad maa chose you as my life partner.
Swara came out of her thoughts as Sanskaar entered the room. She ran and hugged him tightly. He wondered what was wrong but hugged her back. He asked, “What happened Shona?” “Thank you Sanskaar. Thank you so much. It was really my best birthday. You made me feel so special. I’m really glad that maa chose you for me”, said Swara. Sanskaar smiled and said, “I’m also lucky to have you in my life.” Swara pulled back and smiled. “Thanks, thanks a lot Sanskaar”, saying this she excitedly kissed Sanskaar on his right cheek leaving Sanskaar shocked. He turned to look at her but she shied and ran away. She took her dress and went to change. Sanskaar smiled and placed his hand on his cheek. He said, “Haaye mar jaava! (God I’ll die) THE FIRST KISS!”
