Part 5: The Savior

PART v THE SAVIOR
Recap: Kushi comes into the Sheesh Mahal. She takes Arnav to be he personal servant and friend. She and Arnav goes to the same school. One day Arnav comes to know what Suresh is doing and faces him abt this, he gets beten up and blackmailed. Kushi spots Suresh and Arnav together in that room…..
Ab age…..
Kushi was really angry… she was waiting for Arnav to come and here he was playing with some one else… but what she dint understand was why both of them weren’t wearing clothes….
Are you guys playing..? She asked in a serious tone….
Yes dear we are… answered Suresh who came out of his initial shock of seeing the door open…. He was happy to get another one to play with…
But why aren’t you wearing any clothes?
This is a new game…. Do you want to play? He asked coming closer to her…
Hmmm but I don’t know how to…..
I’ll teach you… I taught Guddu here too….. Come in dear one… he called sweetly…. And Kushi came in… her eyes lingered on Arnav who was frozen in his place….. Suresh lifted her up and made her sit on the table….
So what is your name dear…. He asked softly…
They call me Pari….. What is your name?
I am Suresh… Guddu here calls me sir…. You can….
I’ll call you Suresh itself… she said as she looked intentionally into his eyes… Kushi dint like his man. Arnav was her friend and was to play only with her not with anyone….
Hmmm ok dear…
Its Pari ok….. She said rudely….
Oh ok Pari… I’ll teach you the game…..
No… Now I don’t want to learn…I want to take Guddu with me… he told me he would teach me cricket…
Oh…. But this game is much fun…. He said coming closer to her…..and rubbing her legs as he slowly moved up…
Ok… but what are you doing? I feel uneasy…. She said directly… Suresh was shocked…. No prey of his had talked like this… but this girl was different… he dint like the way she looked at him, without fear… yes her eyes were not shy or scared…. They looked boldly into his…this annoyed him….
This is the game Pari… you’ll feel good later… he said as he lifted her frock as his hands were on her thighs and hood rubbing on her leg…
I don’t like it…. She pronounced each letter for this man… she dint like it….
You’ll like it… he said getting impatient…. Just let me do it…
No I won’t… and stop it… she said trying to get down from the table…
All this while Arnav stood there and unwillingly stared at the duo’s activities…. He was surprised with Kushi’s reactions. He was somewhere proud of her for rejecting him…. But being scared and hurt he couldn’t react to help her… he stood as a mute spectator to all this….
Suresh placed both of his hands on either side of her on the table… he bought his mouth closer to her ears….. Shut up girl he sneered… I’ll not wait to get your acceptance if you keep on saying no…. he said and kissed her ear…
Kushi felt disgusted… she remembered her teacher teaching them abt this. She remembered how her teacher told them to scream when some adult touches them and makes them feel uneasy… she did the same thing…. She screamed… and unfortunate for Suresh as his ears were just near her mouth…. The high pitched sound blurred out Suresh for few mins making him take his hands from the table and close his ears… he stepped back and Kushi drew her legs and kicked him with her force. Suresh already in a state of daze fell back hitting his back on the floor… Kushi jumped off the table and took her bat and flung it aimlessly but to her luck her bat hit his arousing making him yell in pain. He held his paining tool and turned sideway trying to easy it out. Kushi again flung the bat and this time it hit his ear earning another yell… she held the bat in one hand and ran towards Arnav. She held Arnav’s hand in another hand and pulled him outside the room… in her urgency she forgot to see that he was naked. She pulled him and ran towards her room. Luckily no one was there in that part of the Mahal to spot them. She took him to her room and pushed him in. She closed the door and sat down on the bed huffing… this was exciting she decided… then she saw the shocked Arnav…. Her brain got one more idea… she pushed him into the wash room and made him stand under the shower… she turned the shower and came out. She ran out of the room locking it from outside… she ran to Arnav’s house through the corridor avoiding the room which she had locked from outside while escaping… she went into the house and opened the cupboard to get his clothes…. She took out 2 sets and left the house to her room.
Arnav stood under the shower. He cried as water washed out his tears…. He was scared… now that his mistress had angered Suresh sir… what would he do to his father….. He wondered as more tears flooded his eyes….. This girl was nothing but trouble… he had everything under control…. He though she had to come and spoil everything… why was god so unfair with him… he cried more into the shower when he heard the door open….
Come out Guddu…. Dint you take bath in the morning? Asked an impatient Kushi
Arnav silently took the towel from the rack and walked outside the washroom and that is when he found a pair of his clothes…. He wore it thanking this pesky girl for the first time… Kushi handed him a glass of haldi doodh…. Arnav looked at her confused…
Nani used to say it helped in healing wounds…. Saying she pressed the glass in his hand….. Arnav had no option but to gulp down its contents… Kushi took out a first aid box and plastered a band aid on his forehead. Arnav took the emptied glass and got up…
Where are you going? Lie down….. Saying she sat down on the chair crossing her hands on her chest and glaring at him… Arnav gulped down and did as he was told…. After 20 min the door was knocked and the family doctor arrived….. She smiled at Kushi
Pari… kya hua? You called me to come in urgently… she asked sweetly… she knew Kushi from the time she was a baby… she liked this girl as she was more like Saroj her dear late friend….
Aunty… this is my friend Guddu… he is hurt… Pls check him she said pointing at the boy on the bed….
Hmmm… she sang and went closer to Arnav… she removed the band aid and checked his wounds… how did this happen she asked cleaning it… she knew this was caused by hitting at something… she also saw marks on the boy’s cheek…..
Wo… aunty started Kushi and ended by telling the doctor her encounter with Suresh and what and all happened…. Pushpa (the doctor) was shocked she caressed Arnav’s head softly… beta from how many days is this going on?
Arnav was silent….. At this moment he hated Kushi…. Why was she doing all this… she was putting her papa in trouble also…. He thought
Pls tell me beta… this is important… no one will hurt you the doctor assured him but Arnav was silent…. He dint want to trust an unknown lady…. The doctor signed in defeat….
Ok Pari… I’ll come later saying she left the room directly asking for Shashi…..
Why dint you tell the doctor anything asked Kushi as she was irritated…
I won’t tell anything…. Answered Arnav
Why not…. She could help don’t you know this….
She cannot…. He said adamantly
She can….
No
Yes
No
Yes the argument would have continued if not for the arrival of Shashi…..
Shashi was shocked listing to Pushpa…. He summoned Amar and both of them entered Kushi’s room…
Amar hugged Arnav and cried out… beta how are you… did he hurt you too much….
I’m ok Bauji… Pls don’t cry… comforted Arnav as he glared at Kushi for worrying his father….
No beta… it’s my mistake… if I had known before…. Oh god what have I done he cried even more….
Amar… don’t do this…. Arnav is ok we need to deal with Suresh now…. I have called the cops…. Shashi said trying to comfort the crying father…
Malik if choti malkin had not gone there then what would have happened? He visibly shuddered at the thought…
Amar Pls you are scaring the boy now…
Amar turned towards Kushi and knelt down coming to her height… he held her hands and cried into them…. Choti malkin thank you…. So very much… you have helped this poor Mali’s son… how will I ever be able to repay you…. Kushi dint understand what was going on….
Kaka… why are you crying… see Guddu is ok… and Bauji will handle everything… he will punish that evil man too…. don’t cry… she said wiping Amar’s eyes…..Shashi looked at his daughter proudly… he was truly proud of his daughter… and was very happy and relieved that Arnav was safe… now he had to deal with Suresh permanently…. What he dint know was what a criminal Suresh was and how this country dealt with such cases….
Note: I hope you guys are ok with how Kushi dealt with Suresh… from the next part I’ll tell you how adults deal this in our country… Pls don’t be disappointed….
Arnav dislikes Kushi for her being rude nothing else… this will change…
Arnav is scared… and is hurt emotionally. He is putting a brave face in front of his father as he doesn’t want his father to be worried…. Soon things will settle down…..
