Continuation From the last Episode;
????️ Ashwini Pov ????️
“I know I can always trust you Ashwini.” My darling said and he smiled at me.
Oh my gosh! His smile….
I just love his smile, I promise myself I will always make him smile. I would do anything within my power to make him keep smiling. It suits him. His smile brings out his handsome face, his smile makes me forget myself sometimes. His smile leaves me speechless and makes me do things without thinking. His smile is having a lot of effect on me.
I don’t think he knows how much I love him and I am so happy that he reciprocate back my love.
“Let me quickly go and shower so that I can be heading to Bombay Nagpade Port.” I told him. That’s the only port in Bombay and I know that’s where Kaane intended to offload his goods.
“Okay Ashwini, I will be waiting for you in the compound.” He said and left me room.
My relationship with him started five years ago. He was my first in everything and ever since he told me he loves me, I haven’t regretted giving up my scholarship for Taru.
And speaking of my soon to be sister-in-law, I heard she will be coming back to India soon but didn’t know the actual date.
I quickly took my shower, brushed my teeth and changed into something nice, a pair of black tight jeans that hugged my ass, a white top and a red jacket. I comb my hair and tie it in a ponytail. I looked at myself in my mirror and smiled at the beautiful girl I was seeing there.
Even though I didn’t apply makeup, I was still pretty.
I left my room and descended the stairs and went to the kitchen to see my mother, she was preparing something.
“Good morning mum.” I greeted her and went to hug her.
“I don’t like this life you choose to live Ashwini.” She said as she returned my hug then released her hold on me.
“Mum, it’s my life and I will do whatsoever I want with it.” I told her, shifting back to look at her face.
“This is not the kind of life I had planned for you Ashwini. What if one day you realize you are doing the wrong thing, sacrificing for the wrong person. Giving Taru your scholarship is not my business even though I am pained, but throwing away your education just because of a boy, that I won’t accept. A boy who doesn’t like or love you, he is just using you. When will you realize that he is wrong for you?”
“I love that boy mum and nothing gonna change about that. I want to stick with him till the end of life. I am very intelligent, smart and strong, so I don’t need school. All I need is Arjun love and guess what mum? He loves me too.” I told my mother.
She came closer to me and touched my cheeks gently, “You keep calling him ‘My Darling’ and what does he call you in return? Don’t be a fool for long Ashwini. I hope you get to see the truth one day, to see the real picture I am seeing. And when that day comes, you can come to me and cry out your heart, and don’t worry, my shoulder will be empty.” She said and I huffed out in annoyance.
“I get it, you hate him but bare this in your mind, he is soon going to be your son in law.” I told her and she removed her hands from my cheeks.
Why is she not in support of my relationship with Arjun?
Why does she feel my darling is using me? He is and can never use me.
I love him with all my heart and he loves me with all his heart, isn’t that enough for my mother?
Why is she hell bent on destroying my beautiful relationship with him? Why?
“I will be coming back soon mom.” I said and turned to leave the kitchen but her next words stopped me in my tracks.
“Going to do another dangerous job for him, right? You would move the earth for him, Ashwini, but my question is. Can Arjun do the same for you?” She asked me and went back to her cooking.
I left the kitchen in anger.
Why can’t she just be happy for me, for my happiness just this once?
Coming out of the house, I saw Arjun and seeing him took my breath away. Just like me, he has taken his bath and freshen up.
“You are finally here, come on, let’s go.” Arjun told me which prompted me to start walking towards his direction. “So what is the plan?” He asked me once I reached his side.
“You go and see Kaane and I will be heading to the port.” I replied to him.
He nodded his head and turn to enter his car.
“Won’t you kiss me my darling?” I asked him and he came to halt. He faces me and closes the distance between us and before I could count one to three. His lips were on mine and I went to heaven and came back. It was brief but it was worth it.
He entered his car and ignited it and his car roared into life.
I, on the other hand, went for my bike. Bobby had gifted me the bike when I had turned 19. It was a gift for my hard work and I loved it.
By the time i started my bike, the gate keeper had opened the gate down and I drove out of the compound, heading towards Bombay Nagpade Port.
It’s time for serious business.
I arrived at the port and switched off my bike engine when I saw Kaane men, who seemed to be waiting for their cargo to arrive.
“Hey boys!” I yelled out bringing all their attention to me. “Call the ship and ask them not to come here.” I told them causally, resting on my bike.
One of them walked to me, I guess their leader or something related to that.
“I would suggest you leave here before we put that pretty mouth of yours to good use.”
I smirked, “What’s your name?” I asked him.
He was taken aback by my question. “I am K, any problem pretty?” He asked.
“After you wake up, learn how to keep your mouth shut K.”
“Wha—” He didn’t get to complete his statement when I slapped him, hard.
He fell down to the ground, unconscious.
“Now, who is doing the calling?” I asked the rest of the men who were staring at me in shock. Sometimes my actions make my job easier. “Listen all of you, I am an odd lady, if I don’t get the fruit I will hack down the tree. And if I don’t get the tree, I pull out the roots.” I told them grinning evilly.
