I guessed it right
I second you nanbi
I hope our bosses are not at IL
We were in Ramya’s room all decked up. Make up artist was giving finishing touches to Ramya , who looked radiant. Priya knocked and entered the room, she was absolutely classy.
‘Nice Lehenga..goes well with your colour…’ Priya said. She handed over a jewel box to Ramya. ‘These are for you to wear for the ceremony tomorrow..’ Ramya had a shocked expression opening the box.
‘Priya, this is..It must be atleast…’ I glimpsed at the box,it was filled with ornaments made of gold , I could see glittering diamonds too. ‘You needn’t have…’
Mukund who appeared ceremony ready entered the room. He smiled at Ramya and said ‘You look so..beautiful..’ Something passed between them for a second.
‘Ahem..’Srikanth entered the room. ‘Everyone is waiting for you to start the rituals..’ Sriknath told them.
‘Hey what’s this?’ Ramya asked Srikanth and that’s when Mukund’s glance fell on the box..’Gift from their family..’ Ramya said softly.
‘This is such a lavish gift..’ Mukund started saying something to Priya.
‘Not at all when she asked Jai to take place of her father..’Priya replied.
Mukund’s folks swarmed the room to take bride and groom for ceremony.
‘Please keep this in your room.I’ll take it later..’ Ramya thrusted the box to me. I went to our room to realize Srikanth has followed me.
‘You look so pretty Harini…’ Srikanth said locking the door, pulling me into a hug.
‘I will miss you…’
‘and I got this for you..’ he gave me a beautiful bracelet.
‘This is so pretty..’I said admiring it. He helped me wearing the bracelet, held my hands and whispered ‘Love you…’
When we visited the ceremony area it was on full swing and no one noticed our absense. We joined the Evolution gang and I could see Nandhini was chatting up with Sagar somewhere away.Chairman and President who appeared to have come back from a walk joined us.
‘ORK is looking very cross…’ Venkat said.ORK , Vidhyuth and Virat were in deep conversation somewhere away.
‘I could see why..’ Sameer pointed to Nandhini and Sagar.
‘Sriram, Can you whisk your boss on pretext of something?’ Venkat commanded. Sriram looked at them and immediately got to action.
Sagar stepped away looking for someone while Nandhini and Sriram got into an argument.
‘They fight always like married couples..’ Rajib remarked.
‘Mm..Have you thought about it Jai? They would make a good pair..’Mukund commented.
‘Sriram is seeing someone…’ Srikanth said quickly.
‘Hey look at ORK now…’ Sameer pointed. ORK appeared embrassed with scene between Nandhini and Sriram. Priya and mum who were near by swung into action , made nandhini sit with them. Sriram came back to join us.
‘Your sister thinks whole world is watching her. Accusing me of following her and purposely stopped her conversation with Sagar. Seems Sherlock Holmes didn’t come out of his room yet, she believes I said something..ridiculous..’ he was fuming.
‘That’s true…you were watching her a lot yesterday. I noticed it.’Venkat remarked casually. Chairman and others burst out laughing.
‘No sir…’ Sriram sat next to President Venkat.
ORK came towards us by then. ‘ORK…I was just telling Jai that he should consider Nandhini for Sriram. They look good together, fight a lot..what else one need..’Venkat patted Sriram’s shoulders.
‘and have a team on stand by for fight resolution…’ ORK laughed loudly.
I left the group to check on Nandhini. As Priya stepped away for something, ORK sat near us. He said in a low voice
‘Nandhini , what business you have with Sagar? Also what’s with you and Sriram?’ he chided.
‘He was just praising her for how she handled the event..’ mum replied.
‘Nandhini..you have to be careful with him, he is known for playing around with women..Considering prospective alliance is also here..Bythe way that boy and his family are very much interested in proceeding further..what do you say?’ ORK asked.
‘I need time..I told him that..’Nandhini replied
‘Right..less than a day..stay away from Sagar and Sriram..’ ORK left.
It was a nice wedding despite Nandhini cribbing about Sriram and ORK staring daggers whenever he finds me and Srikanth together. There was a break in the ceremony for dinner at which I was sitting next to Srikanth. Sameer came and sat next to us.
‘Just finished a call with Ajitha and ORK.ORK wants to retain you at any cost…’ Sameer said.
‘Why? Can he do so?’ I asked.
‘Who knows how ORK thinks? As a COO he can do anything…’ Sameer replied.
‘I thought he would be jumping with joy to get rid of me..’ Srikanth said.
At distance I could see Ramya entering the dining area with her friend.
‘There is another ceremony starting in next two hours…’ I said to Srikanth and Sameer.
‘We are going to party in Rajib’s room…Thanks to ORK and your mum who offered to take care of twins….’
‘What party..I thought you will be spending some time with me..’ I whispered to Srikanth as Sameer left to fill his plate.
‘You are ready again…’ he teased. ‘Sorry ,we already planned…’Srikanth said.
At the ceremony followed I kept dozing off. I wonder how Ramya will have energy for tomorrow.Vithuran was sleeping in my lap.Atlast it got over.
‘I get only four hours to sleep..’Ramya said as we retired in her room.
Four hours of sleep has refreshed her and the next morning I could see her face was glowing. She was wearing the jewels gifted by chairman commenting how much he is going to gift for our marriage. For a minute, I was visualizing how our marriage is going to be. Srikanth entered the moment to escort Ramya to the ceremony. Srikanth looked very dashing in his traditional wear.
‘Someone couldn’t take eyes from you..’ Ramya commented.
‘That’s what everyone is saying to Mukund. I captured few snaps of how Mukund is looking at you…’ Srikanth tried showing his picture.
‘You have taken a right decision and marrying a good man. Vithuran would be happy growing up with you both and this is what Dev would have wanted also…’ Srikanth said as Ramya leaned on his shoulders.
‘Truth…’ Srikanth said wiping her tears.
‘Suddenly Dev’s thought…’ Ramya said amidst sobs.
‘I know he will be happy for you…’ Srikanth said wiping her tears.
‘Ramya..’ Mukund entered the room in his groom attire.’What’s wrong?’ he asked as Srikanth moved. Mukund and Ramya were embraced in a hug. I could see Ramya’s breath becoming normal.
‘You are teaching these young people lot of things.. ..’ I could see Chairman and President entering the room.
‘Ahem…as if they don’t know anything..yesterday I witnessed..’Venkat started to say something.
‘Sir, please..’ Srikanth pleaded.
‘Ok, you are spared. Mukund they want you for the ceremony. You go ahead, we will come along with Ramya…’ President said.
‘See you there..’ Mukund quickly left.
‘Harini, I need a touch up…’ Ramya shouted and I sprung into action.
‘You look beautiful..dear girl…’chairman took her arms and lead the way to dias.
Srikanth’s eyes were wet when Mukund and Ramya were united in ceremony. ‘I’m proud of you, Srikanth.’ Chairman’s voice rang behind us.
After the photo shoots, grand lunch all of us had to leave the resort. Ramya was in smiles as the new bride. We were waiting to take leave of Mukund who busy sending off the guests.
‘Thanks ORK…Harini, let it be your wedding soon…’ he said.
‘Wait let’s go together. I’m driving back Priya’s car…’ came a text from Srikanth.Chairman’s family came into view immediately.
When Vivaan was chatting something to Mukund, I told ORK I’m coming back with Srikanth. He waited couple of minutes till chairman’s family took leave of the newly wed couple.
‘Srikanth, I’m expecting you in my cabin at 10.30am tomorrow.’ ORK said sternly.’Drive safe…’
‘He spoiled my mood..’Srikanth said getting into thecar. Despite the spoiled mood that was the best few hours with him. I could see Srikanth is both happy and relieved.
I got up tired but dressed up in formals for meeting with ORK.
‘Looking smart’ Priya commented.
‘Dressed up to impress your father in law?’ Sriram inquired.
Priya laughed. ‘Kaveri says he is kind of okay with you…’
‘That’s encouraging…wedding bells soon?…’ dad asked.
‘Oh…don’t schedule it during contest time..I couldn’t even practice last few days in that pool…is breakfast rady?I’m starving…’ Vivaan asked.
‘People would start thinking we don’t feed you at all…’ dad commented. Vivaan didn’t mind and became engrossed in eating.
I reached office well in time and was on time at ORK’s cabin. ORK ‘s cabin is now in the same floor as dad’s.
ORK was on call when I entered, gestured me to sit down.As soon as he finished the call an attendant came to ask whether we need anything to drink.
‘My usual..Strong coffee without sugar for him…’ ORK said.
I wanted to deny and ask for tea instead, but I don’t want to start with argument.
‘You must have guessed why I called you today…’ ORK said rolling up his sleeves and gave his long speech.
‘Are you..I mean why would I?’ I asked completely irritated by his demands.
‘Srikanth..If you want your career and personal life to run smooth , do as I say…’he ordered.
‘I can’t believe you..you told Harini that you are okay with me and then doing a back door job…’ I shouted.
‘She is stubborn with her choice and Srikanth, I know what you were doing at Mukund’s wedding…’ ORK looked at me calmly. ‘Hope you will stop being a kid running to your dad or blaming about me to Harini…’ he gave a dry smile.
I got up and came out without responding to him.This is a new low for his standards as well.
‘Coffee, we are in cafeteria already…’ Sameer called my mobile as soon as I got out of ORK’s room.I found Sameer and Rajib engrossed in some discussion.
‘What did your father in law say?’ Rajib questioned.
‘Anything wrong?He doesn’t want you to move out of company?’ Sameer asked.
‘He is a …’I told them what he told.
‘That’s so ORK..only reason he didn’t slap you is you are chairman’s son..He is finding a different way to separate you and Harini.’ Sameer said echoing my thoughts.
‘What are you going to do now? Obey him?…’Rajib asked.
‘No way..can you help me? ‘This is what I’m planning to do…’ I explained them.
‘Srika..will Harini agree?’ Rajib appeared very doubtful.
‘She will..’I said more firmly.
‘We are on board…’ Sameer said looking at Rajib. ‘I know a person who can help you on this. Shall I put you in touch with…’
‘Yes please..I’ll speak to Harini first and then…’
‘Srika..don’t do this at spur of moment. Think of it from all sides..’Rajib warned.
‘This is what you did when I had problem Rajib. Trust me ORK is vindicative and Srikanth doesn’t have time in hand.He has to leave in two days…’ Sameer supported me.
‘Don’t worry..I’m sure of what I want…’ I told Rajib.
‘He will be fine Rajib..’Sameer told Rajib ‘ Don’t waste time..speak to Harini and then call me…’ Sameer pushed me.
I called Harini and as it was lunch time we agreed to go out.
‘What did he want to talk about?’ Harini asked as soon as she got into the car.
I told her I couldn’t talk about that. But when I told about my plan she readily agreed.
‘I trust you Srikanth and madly in love with you…’ she said holding my hand. I did all other arrangements.
Next day I left the house before others got up and went to temple.Harini met me there.
‘It was here, I met you first,my first day at Evolution..’ Harini said. She looked breathtaking in her saree and strands of jasmine.
‘Are you okay, tell me if you have even a hint of doubt,,,’ I asked her.
‘I’m just thinking about what ORK would have told you to take such decision…’ she said and froze.
I saw Venkat in traditional attire, entering the temple. But instead of coming towards us, he sat leaning on the near by pillar.
‘Sir..’ I went near him not sure of what to talk.
‘Jai wanted to see you getting married. He will land in another 20 mins, so I thought I will help capturing the video.’ He said. My head remained bowed.
‘Sir I didn’t have much of options..’
‘Right…You go ahead, I’ll just capture the video just in case your dad runs late’ Venkat said.
‘Srikanth…’ Rajib who just came to the temple called me was stunned seeing President there.
‘Ignore me..I’m just a spectator here…’ President said calmly. ‘Hi Sameer..’ President greeted Sameer .’Carry on Srikanth, this must be done is auspicious time. Don’t think I have come to stop the wedding.’
Morning was still young and there were not much of crowd in temple except us.
‘See I’m earlier than you guys…’Venkat said. I turned to see Sriram and Priya entering the temple. How come all of them knew.
‘I think priest for searching for you..Srikanth. You require a bit of touch up Harini..shall I help in draping the saree better..’ Priya asked Harini who couldn’t respond.
‘Have you arranged for breakfast somewhere? Didn’t even have coffee..’ Sriram asked sitting next to Venkat.
‘You barge in to a marriage and demand coffee..’Venkat chuckled.
‘You are..none of you are concerned is it?’ I asked.
‘Why should we? Don’t we know you and Harini, your father feels bad for missing it …Probably we will stream it live for him…’ Priya said casually.
‘Jai should have contacted me immediately for charted plane than waiting for usual flight.But if not for it, I wouldn’t have even known about it.’
I took a deep breath and looked at Harini who looked puzzled as well.
‘Come out Srikanth..’ Rajib whispered in my ears.
I stepped out along with Harini. ‘Srikanth, talk with your father once. I know ORK has challenged you..but somehow it has reached your father’s ears.. ‘
‘I wonder how did it reach..’ I said loudly.
‘That’s Mukund again…’ Sriram smiled and was on his way to go out when he got the call.
‘That’s good dad. No not yet..guess you can make it…’Sriram was speaking.
‘Sriram ask your father to wait at home. Srikanth, it’s time you tell us what ORK said.We are getting married someday but today is not the day…’ Harini said firmly.
Why is ORK behaving odd out of sudden?
