“Dad, you should know me by now. You should know whenever I make up my mind to get something, I always get it. I want Ashwini, I want her as my wife, as the next Queen of India. Nothing you say here, will change my mind about her.” Prince Khan said.
“And I am your father Khan, I won’t mislead you, that girl is a bag of trouble son.”
“And still yet, you made the bag of trouble to protect me.” Prince khan said and heaved out a deep sign before holding his father’s hands. “Please father, just do this for me. I have never asked you anything since the past twelve years and today I am asking you to find a way for me and the girl to meet. Beneath all that trouble bag, as you’d put it, is a beautiful girl who your son loves. Press some buttons and make it work. I shall be in my room resting, I’m tired.” He added and proceeded to open his room door and entered his room.
King Sanjay left his son room for his own, Khan is his only son and he will do anything for him.
He needs to come up with something for Ashwini to come here.
“Mum are you alright?” Ashwini asked as she squats before her Mehek.
Mehek tried to calm her heart down as she focused on her surroundings.
Aishwarya has met with her former betrothed.
“Did any of them recognize you?” Mehek asked.
“Recognize me? No, our smooth disguise was a top notch and I made someone dressed up like the prince.” Ashwini answered, still concerned about her mother.
“I am not talking about that Ashwini, I am talking about the king and the son.”
“Of course they would recognize me. Bobby introduced me as his daughter and he would have sent my picture to his son to let him know the identity of his escort.” Ashwini told her. “Are you alright mum?”
Mehek nodded her head and gestured to Ashwini to help her up to her feet which she did in no time.
“Ashwini, promise me that you will never come across King Sanjay and his son, please.”
“Mum, I promise.” Ashwini promised, she doesn’t even want to think about the old King and his stupid son. “And that reminds me mum, you said I belong to a Royal family, is King Sanjay my father is that why you don’t want me to associate with him?” She asked.
“No, King Sanjay is not your father, your father is someone bigger than him, someone who controls King Sanjay.”
“Wow, he must be someone powerful then.”
“He was Ashwini until he was killed by some assassin’s on his way to his meeting place.”
“My father is dead? Is that why you ran away with me to hide me from his enemies?” Ashwini asked and when Mehek made no move to answer, she continued. “Tell me the names of the assassin’s or the people who he went to meet.”
“Ashwini just let it go. I don’t know who they are but I guess with time you will get to remember everything that happened to you, and that is why I need to see this Rohit.”
“You are hiding something deep from me mum, but I guess it’s for my own good. I will try to make Rohit see you. In fact, I will be going to his house right now.” Ashwini told her mother and rushed to her wardrobe, opened it and brought out a long blue flowering gown and put on her matching blue stiletto heels, she quickly apply light makeup on her face and brushed her hair. She had been putting her hair on a ponytail but today, she decided to let it down. She turns to face Mehek who hasn’t left the room.
“How do I look mum?” Ashwini asked, twirling around.
“You look beautiful my dear.” Mehek replied with a smile.
Ashwini smiled at that compliment.
“But you need one more thing. Wait here I am coming back.” Mehek told her and quickly rushed out of Ashwini room and returned two minutes later with a fancy blue purse in her hands which she gave to Ashwini who collected it.
“That’s for your phone and take some money with you In case you are hungry.” Mehek told her, satisfied with Ashwini’s appearance. “Now you are good to go, my blue lady.”
Ashwini laughed at that and grabbed her phone she was charging.
“You can use my car instead of your bike to visit him.” Mehek told her. Hardly does she use the car, Toyota XB Scion, Bobby had brought her. “My car keys are in the purse.” She added quickly.
“Okay mum, thanks. Wish me luck, I don’t want my hotshot to send me out of his house once he sees me.” Ashwini said with a smile.
“He won’t, you look beautiful.” Mehek said and winked at her. “Hurry up and start going.”
“Love you.” Ashwini said kissing Mehek cheeks and left her room.
She met Arjun downstairs and pretended not to see him. She was almost at the front door when she felt his hands around her waist.
“Where are you going Ashwini love?” He asked softly.
“Take your dirty hands off me right now Arjun.” Ashwini said, trying to wriggle herself out of Arjun’s tight hold on her waist.
“No, not until you tell me where you are going.”
“I’m going to see my boyfriend, now can you let me go, I don’t want to hurt you Arjun.”
“You now have a boyfriend so soon?” Arjun demanded turning Ashwini to face him. He was staring at her in shock. “You have gotten over me so soon? I thought you are going to give me time to sort myself out, I still want you Ashwini. I know you are doing this to make me jealous and you’ve succeeded, okay, I am sorry, please forgive me and accept me back.”
“It’s too late for that, Arjun. You chose your path and made me see the reality of life and for that, I am really grateful. Now take your hands off me, I won’t say it again.”
“I said I am sorry Ashwini, I know I fuck up a lot and I know how my words hurt you. I did not mean any of that and-”
“Save your strength Arjun because there will and can never be us again.” Ashwini interrupted him. “You have Janvi.”
“I don’t want her, I want you and you are mine Ashwini, we belong to each other.” Arjun said and leaned forward to kiss her when a thunderous slap landed on his left cheek sending him flying across the living room on the floor. He stared at Ashwini in shock, with unbelievable eyes. He touched the cheek she slapped.
“Listen and listen carefully Arjun.” Ashwini said in anger. “We are done and dusted. Don’t ever touch me again.”
Arjun slowly stood up from the floor and smiled at Ashwini, ignoring the blood that coated his lips. His smile was cold and his eyes were so cold and hard that it sent shivers down Ashwini’s spine. He approached her.
Ashwini has never seen Arjun like that before, her anger was gone and for the first time, she was a little bit scared.
“I will kill him.” Arjun said slowly with an evil gleam in his eyes. “I will kill that new boyfriend of yours. You are mine and no one will take that away from me.”
