Chapter 16. Expect the Unexpected

Jennifer did not expect Cyrus of all people, shocked at his arrival she avoided looking into his eyes. A hundred things ran in her mind.

”Freak!!! What is he doing here!?!” she thought.

Cyrus pulled a chair at the dining table and sat down, constantly looking at Jennifer. A hundred and more things ran in his mind too. While he, Shekhar and Mr. Ahuja were at a conversation and the usual male banter, Roohi looked at all of them and said ” It’s the first time we are having so many people at home for dinner, what say Papa?”

Everyone laughed while Mr. Ahuja looked at Roohi with an odd smile. There was his little girl. He knew his pup brought him closer to whatever he wanted.

“Why don’t you guys play with me and my new pup?’ Roohi said with all the eagerness she could gather looking at Cyrus and Jennifer.

“They must be tired Roohi, they are here after work, don’t trouble them…” Shekhar remarked.

“Ah! Yes! Roohi, I will have to rush home after dinner, I have an important work you see” Jennifer said mentally thanking Shekhar more than her stars, spending time with Cyrus ever again was the last thing on her mind right now.

“IMPORTANT?” Cyrus thought to himself.

Shekhar noticed that Jeniffer did not seem to be the girl he first met at the railway station in Kochi, she was so full of life back then and now there was something that made her uncomfortable here at the dining table “Rather someone?!?” he thought.

Are you Okay?” asked Shekhar giving her a glass of water.

“Yeah I’m Okay…all fine…all fine!” she replied. Cyrus looked at the two all the while, gobbling up the food he remarked” If this is how you cook, your wife must be really lucky Shekhar!”

Jennifer coughed.

“Cyrus is right, you can as well open a restaurant Shekhar, if you need someone to take care of Roohi I am always around for help?” Mr. Ahuja said looking at Roohi with the same old gaze.

Shekhar smiled saying “I am happy as a freelance writer, I can take care of my little angel right now. What more do I need, spending time with my daughter is the most I ask for!”

Cyrus tried his best to talk to Jennifer, every time he did that she would turn to Roohi to divert her attention. Here is one tough girl!” he said looking at Jennifer and Roohi.

“Yes of course, that’s my daughter!” said Shekhar fondly patting Roohi’s head and pulling her pony tail. While Roohi giggled, Jennifer for the first time looked at Cyrus that evening and gave him a killer stare that kind of summed up what she had for him.

Shekhar’s phone rang.

“Where are you?” said Tara from the other end.

“Having dinner at home, few guests today!” said Shekhar and snapped.

Tara kept the phone and thought “Guests? Who? At home?”

Life was really going round the bend for her right now, or was it for everyone?

Chapter 9: An Evening And A Change

Shekhar drove the car to the finest pizza outlet in town. While Roohi sat playing with her doll in the backseat, Jennifer sat beside him. It had been ages since both of them had some company, there were times when he wanted to ask Tara to come along for a long drive or a small family outing which for reasons known never materialized. He was happy with Roohi, and Roohi was happy with him. Now looking at Jennifer sitting right next to him for a moment everything seemed perfect.

With one eye on the road and one on her, he drove through the bustling traffic on the roads of Mumbai. Jennifer looked at him and smiled asking “Yes?”

“Nothing!” said Shekhar despite something running in his mind. He looked at the road ahead and smiled to himself.

Jennifer’s phone beeped.

Jenni, PLEASE listen to me…this is important!”

Jennifer looked at the sender’s name-‘CYRUS’

It poked the joy and peace she was in now. After the heated conversation last night she had almost decided of giving it a closure, this virtual relationship was about to do more harm than good. Instead of tracking down the plagiarist she now felt that she had ended up in a soup herself.

What about that video chat?” Cyrus’s words rang in her ears again.

She ignored the text.

“Are you alright, need any help?” Shekhar said looking at her sigh and the little beads of perspiration on her forehead. “Err…yeah I am…hmm…nothing, it’s just about work” said Jennifer trying to hide her fears from becoming obvious.

“Ah! That’s great! Did you say you just got a job at the media firm we met you a while ago, what is the position, how much are they offering you Jennifer?” asked Shekhar to ease her a little bit.

“Oh yeah…remember I told you when we met the other day, I thought I would be here for a stint of internship…some photographer left the firm…they need one urgently, they think I am a good one to keep!” she said and winked. Shekhar laughed, thinking of Tara.

Her cell phone continued to beep.

As they reached the joint, they took the corner place with the sea view hoping Roohi would have a great time especially after the frightening experience of being ‘lost and found’ few hours ago.

Roohi screamed “Papa let’s order my favourite!”

“Peppy Pizza and Chocolate Ice Cream?” Shekhar said and laughed.

Jennifer smiled looking at the bond between the father and daughter.

While they munched on their pizzas Shekhar asked curiously “So how did you find your new boss?”

“Oh! She warned me about the smoking thing, too cold that was!” said Jennifer.

“Smoking is injurious to health” muttered Roohi listening to the elders speak.

“Your daughter is quite wise for her age” Jennifer said looking at Roohi delightedly.

“It helps me think more during work so I can’t avoid it, since you are saying, I will try to from now on sweetheart” she added pinching Roohi’s cheeks.

Her cell phone started buzzing, fifty odd texts and now a call. She cut.

The bill arrived and Jennifer said “This one is on me, I got a job today!”

“We will meet you more often then, we owe you one, don’t we Roohi?” said Shekhar and thanked her for the treat. Roohi smiled finishing her favourite chocolate ice cream, and the three left. Shekhar offered to drop Jennifer back home. He was happy after a long time. It was after all a great day, he had found his daughter Roohi and a new friend, Jennifer, with whom even a little conversation somehow seemed pleasant and endless. His phone rang.

“Where are you?” said Tara from the other end with a faint concern in her voice.

“On the way back home. Roohi is with me” said Shekhar and snapped.

Tara kept the phone ”Was that a girl?” thinking of the voice she heard in the background.

As Jennifer got down from the car and waved a good bye she looked at her cellphone, the last message read.

“Jennie I have the information, believe me this one time, this is for your good!”

The reality of their lives was about to get wilder than their dreams and imaginations.

Excited to listen the Song ? Here is “The Madras Song”

A young lady lands in Chennai, rather Madras, for the first time. Quite deadbeat she takes a typical yellow top Ambassador cab to the city in the twilight. Next morning sparks off a whirlwind discovery of Madras where she flits between the various sights, sounds, smells and warmth the city has to offer. It’s a joyous trip where she interacts with the people of the city, travelling on a yellow scooter, waving from a cycle rickshaw or dancing on a street. From not knowing anything about the city, she ends up completely in love with it. (source)

I bet this song gonna be viral as i am writing this already 54,857 Views are crossed in just two days.

#Bringbackourgirls: A Cry For Help

Sathya Narayanan:

My 100th post is for the 230 Childrens who were kidnapped in Nigeria #Bringbackourgirls Need to ACT Fast and Bring back those little childrens.

Originally posted on Boomie Bol:

If the children(boy and girl) are out future…Then it is up to us as “responsible”humans and adults to defend, and keep them from any and everything that seeks to hate, destroy, hurt, attack, intimidate, annihilate, and abuse them.

It is our core and essential duty. It is our life long responsibility to protect our children because they are our future… They are our tomorrow.
