TPR2 Chap 11- Its on the cards!
Sunday looms large..and Sundae is needed to wind down and relax, chew the cud and reflect on the busy week ;)) Our story moves forward and our new colourful character makes an impressive appearance. Do read slowly and enjoyyyyy!! And don’t forget to comment, I love to read what you liked and what you didnt…I promise to answer all ;))
“Maan, what are you talking about?” Geet frowned, surely he didnt know about Saxena? He was staring into her face, his eyes were boring into hers looking for answers.
“Saxena is a sleazebag, everyone knows that!”
He debated whether to tell her about the picture he received, but the mood she was in he knew she would take it the wrong way and decide he was spying on her, he decided to change tack, after all it was her safety that was concerning him….and jealousy a voice piped up in his mind, but he beat it back..no it was her safety only that concerned him.
“Geet what I am saying….” his eyes warmed , a crooked smile lit one corner of his lips. “..is I love you and I really don’t want anyone taking advantage of you.”
Sinful warm chocolate eyes warmed her face. Her hands that she had been holding so stiffly in anger at her sides lifted and slipped around his neck. Her face lit with a smile that could have charmed the birds out of the trees.
“Maan, I am quite capable of dealing with men like Saxena, you don’t need to worry.” Reaching up on tip toe she kissed that crooked lilt of his lips. Her eyes closed as she felt his breath hitch. A slight shift and she started pressing small kisses over his stubble and jaw.
“Mishty mine you smell so good…” his hands clamped around her and he picked her up, “but I think you will taste much better.” his tone was deep, Carrying her over to the bed he tumbled her on to it his mouth closing over hers as the ever present fires between them flared to life.
“But…..dinner….I need to go….”
“Shhhhhhhh…I need you so much!” His hands were so busy already divesting her of the too many clothes she was wearing.
His mouth trailed over her lush contours, he pulled open her shirt with a tug, the buttons popped open a few of them coming off all together and popping off in to the corner of the room.
“That was my favourite shirt…” A moan broke from her as he captured a a rosy centre covered in lace.
“I’ll get you a dozen more…” he lifted her with one hand and pulled the offending garment off in a fluid movement with the other, his mouth not even stopping for a moment from its exploration.
“Maan!” But she was already in overdrive herself, in this dark stormy mood he was devistating, all she could think abut is she wanted more, pulling at his clothes she helped him shed them. They writhed on the bed, neither of them giving an inch.
“Mishty, I burn for you!”
“You talk to much Maan!”
A sexy grin lit his face at that, usually she was moaning at him because he didn’t talk enough.
She sought out his mouth and then there was no more talking as they lost themselves in each other. It was a fast and furious merging that left them tumbling into ecstasy sooner than they intended. She clung to him absorbing his climax and felt his every shudder in her soul.
“That was just incredible …” Her voice came out a breathless whisper, and she gave a compulsive shiver as her body sang out as aftershocks of pleasure reverberated through her.
“You drive me insane!” His mouth rained soft sweet kisses all over her face, Turning on to his back he took her with him as his breathing steadied. “Mishty mine why is that I can never get enough of you? I just have to come near you and I am like dry kindling ready to fire?”
Her passion sated eyes smiled warmly down at him. “Its the same for me…I am sure you have cast a magic spell on me…with your dark eyes…nahi tou itna khaadoos admi ko kaisa itna pyaar karu?”
“Really?” He growled in mock anger nipping at her chin.
Giggling down at him she smiled and traced a tender long finger down his jaw. Thinking back to how this started, “Maan….you don’t have worry about anybody. I am, and always will be yours and yours only.”
“Is there any doubt?” he growled pulling her into him, so she couldn’t wriggle away. “I would kill anyone who tried to take you away from me!”
“Really?” Giggling at his dramatic comment straddling him, laughing as he pulled her head down to steal a kiss.
“Yes Really!” His warm eyes became serious.
“Look you’re making my heart thud,” she moaned against his mouth as she heard loud thumping.
He started at at her for a moment and then frowned, “That’s not me that’s the door.” His eyes closed in frustration as he was just about to tell her why he didn’t want her to carry on with the Saxena project, she was just in the right mood, she would have heard him out without going off on a tangent.
“DIDIIIIIIIIIIIIII!” Chotu was thumping the door, “WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN THERE!! I need to talk to you!”
“She could be in the bathroom Chotu!” Babli advised, “we should come back later.”
“NO! I need to talk to her now!” Chotu moaned.
Maan lay back on the bed completely defeated as his Mishty tried to wriggle off him with haste. He would tell her later he thought as he heard the kids arguing volubly outside the door. Geet and him were never going to have a decent conversation now when her mind was occupied with other things.
Dropping a quick kiss on his scowling mouth Geet escaped from his arms and climbed off the bed. Shouting as she grabbed her clothes and ran into the bathroom to have a record breaking shower.
“Chotu! I am getting dressed I will come down in a minute you just go down.”
His hands behind his head, Maan lay back and took a moment to reflect that he should have told her much faster, at this rate they would never a decent conversation. Either they lost their tempers and walked out on each other or they just had to touch and they both went off on a different trajectory altogether.
A grumbling Chotu could be heard complaining…”Why do girls take so long to do anything?”
“And boys don’t?” Babli countered, “boys take forever to say anything that’s so important!”
Maan had to agree with her on that point.
“Huh?” Chotu looked at his sister, “what do you mean by that? I never take too long to say anything!” Clearly affronted at her accusation.
“No. not you Chotu, you have a motormouth for sure!”
“DIDI!” Chotu flashed a scowl at her.
Where the evening went Maan wasn’t sure, between helping daadima with the dinner, sorting Babli and Chotu’s homework out and sorting general things around the house Geet’s time was completely taken up by everyone else. He didn’t even get a chance to talk to her in bed. By the time he had finished his international call to USA to get more information about Dan, returning to the bedroom he found Geet fast asleep in bed.
What he had learned from one of Major Saab’s contacts was that Dan Emmerson was as crooked as they come. The US authorities were looking into his businesses and in many US States he had court cases filed against him for various complaints, including one where four workers had died as bad cement had been used in the building, apparently the floor they had been working on collapsed under them and they had fallen 4 floors down. He wondered how Dan had managed to get into India? If so many cases were pending against him surely he would have never been allowed to leave the US?
He took a quick shower and slipped into bed beside her, gathering her soft pliant body into his arms, she smiled and murmured his name in her sleep melting into him completely. He gathered her close and arranged her in a comfortable position. For a long time he mulled over the photographs and what they meant until finally slipping into a worried sleep that had him holding her tightly all night.
The morning didn’t bode well either. Nakul was sitting on the bottom step and seemed to be having a tantrum of sorts, daadima was furious with him.
“Nakul I told you to get the cylinder and geyzer changed! Now what are we going to do!”
“But daadima….I was busy with master Chotu and I forgot…..”
“Nakul you are such a duffer! “Daadima laid into him furiously.
Calmly walking down the stairs he pulled out his mobile and rang Adi to come up with repair men to come to the house who could fix whatever problems Nakul had forgotten to get fixed.
“Daadima calm down your blood pressure will rocket, and Nakul stop crying this instant. In one hours time a team of repairmen are arriving, you need to show them exactly what needs fixing, they will fix it. Now Nakul go and get me some black coffee, and where has Geet gone?”
Her hand rubbing a very annoying headache daadima said..”Oh sorry beta, I forgot, Geet went to the school to drop the children they had to go in early for some special assembly.”
Brimming with frustration he nodded, another chance to talk to her lost, muttering to himself he grabbed his breakfast quickly and headed to the office with a plan.
He saw her running in almost slipping and sliding into his office door, her arms were laden with all manner of things. Wincing he got up, worried that one day she really was going to hurt herself. “Geet!” He called her in, but she smiled at him and ran straight past his office and vanish into hers.
He stared after her in shock, why had she ignored him completely? Pulling open his door he stalked after her.
“Geet! I was calling you in to my office!”
Throwing her bag and various files over her desk , “I know Maan but I had to put these down and give that to Pinky before it dripped all over me!”
Maan turned and stared at where she was pointing to and saw Pinky sitting in the corner rapidly demolishing a huge burger which from his angle looked like it had been shot, so much red ketchup was smeared on it. His temper started to rise. He shook his head to clear it and turned back to Geet, whilst he had been gaping at Pinky she had dialled someone and was giving them a huge sounding off. He walked towards her and stood hands on hips mouthing ‘I’m trying to talk to you!’
She waved at him airily, “I told you no not that plan! I sent revised documents to you two days ago! If you built it wrong, its NOT my fault!” She slammed the phone down and turned to him. “I am sorry Maan did you want me for something?”
He opened his mouth and just at that moment Adi ran in looking terrified homing in on Pinky.
“PINKY!” He shouted, Pinky stuffed the last piece in her mouth and sprang up at Adi’s frightened tone, her eyes doing acrobatics as she tried to warn Adi that she wasn’t alone.
“What? What?” He turned to where her eyes were indicating, and saw Maan standing next to Geet. He stared at them and his face contorted as if he was going to burst into tears.
“Adi control yourself! What the hell is wrong with you?” Maan scowled at him, this morning was turning out to be a nightmare.
“Mrs Chaadha is here!” He squeaked out in a terrified manner.
“Who?” Both Maan and Geet questioned in unison.
Suddenly Malti from reception rushed in behind Adi trying to block someone from coming in.
“You cant come in here Maam! You have no appointment with Maan sir!”
“Arey! I have predicted they will see me!”
Maan’s eyebrows almost met in the middle as Malti was pushed out the way and a large Punjabi lady walked into the room. She looked at him and Geet and smiled and sighed..clutching her hands to her bosoms in a dramatic fashion she said…”ahhh the love birds!”
They all stared at her, wearing a large voluminous African dress with huge patterns she looked extremely exotic, her face was caked with makeup but it was her eyes that everyone stared at, outlined by thick khol she looked very much like Cleopatra.
“Maan, Geet! You are adorable! Just as I predicted you would be. Him a hot tycoon and a sex god!” Maan let out a sound of incredulity … “and Geet such perfection!” Geet stared at the new entry wide eyed. “Just as Pinky and Adi said you were…I feel I know you so well!”
“ADI……!” Maan growled advancing towards Adi who was trying to melt into the door.
“Pinky!” Geet stared at her friend wondering what the hell she had said to this woman.
“Arrey dont blame them! The cards told me all!” She approached them, going around Geet’s desk she settled herself down on her chair pulling out a pack of large tarot cards and started turning them over one by one.
“Madam!” Maan growled. The other three were totally fascinated he saw as their wide eyed looks and open mouths clearly indicated. But he didn’t believe in such drivel.
“Oh! A dark shadow from the past looms!”
“Madam! This is my office not some circus!”
“ Shush young man! I am telling you this is very important for you to know!” She turned over another which showed two lovers entwined…”Ahh Lovers, you are strong with each other.”
Hands on hips Maan rolled his eyes, everyone knew that!
Then another, “but wait! Ahh Secrets!” Turning over another she said…”you two need to tell each other something, very important, don’t hold back my children!” her dramatic face paled at something that obviously effected her.
Since when had they become ‘her children.’
She turned over the last one..and screamed really loudly making Adi jump back and grab a hold of Pinky, and Geet paled.
“Death! Somebody is going die…..”
