The way he was approaching me, I felt he’s going to snatch me from the crowd like a predator grasped his favourite prey out of others. But to my shock, Shivaay hugged Vikram tightly with warm smile advising him to take care of me.
To which Vikram assure this devil like a real husband walking towards parking that yes, he’s will keep me like flowers unaware of the reality that this devil who always become my father, got to know about everything that I facade infront of him and now he’s……..
We were just approaching parking when Shivaay stopped us infront of Oberoi Mansion. I looked up at OM where I spend my most of childhood, crying and laughing with one who in yesterday was my sun but in today and in upcoming tomorrows, he’ll just be Eclipse
“What is cooking in his mind now?”
I questioned my ownself when Shivaay with his devil smirk gave me some clue that I was unable to figure out that, what he’s planning next to ruin me?
When I heard police siren not just me but the police siren got audible to all of us not just siren got eared to us, but the voice of police officer echoed in the red sky.
“Mr Gaurav and Vikram Aditay Thapar you both are under arrest “
This socket got under estimated for all of us when officer told standing infront of Gaurav uncle. Dad, bade papa and Omru ran towards officer to know what led them to utter out except Rascal, who was looking up at all the drama with straight face.
Gaurav” What rubbish you are talking, officer? What we’ve done?”
PO” You well know what you have done, Mr Thapar. Please cooperate and come with us. Constable go and get Mr Vikram too”
Vikram ” Excuse me Officer what the hell is happening what we have done?”
Vikram asked pushing constable aside who came to arrest him
Anika with tears glance Shivaay who turned his face to other side.
PO” Please Thapar’s cooperate otherwise…….
Gaurav” Otherwise what you’ll do huh, what? Don’t you know who I’m?”
Officers” I got it who are you, Mr Thapar. Constable handcuff their wrist”
Tej” Officer you can’t do that with them and what they have done?”
PO” They very well know what they have done Mr Oberoi. Now you all corporate with us otherwise I’ve to arrest you too”
Yash” Excuse me Officer mind your language. First tell us on what note you have came to arrest my son in law and his father?”
PO” I’m sorry Mr Raizada but I think you are unaware about dirty deeds of your daughter husband and father”
Shivaay” Officer look don’t cross your limits you don’t know about whom you are talking about. I can make you sweep our house if you try to stain their image”
Shivaay spoke sternly caressing officer shoulder
O” Their image is already stain Mr SSO and I don’t believe Mr Raizada how can a person like you can give your daughter hand to people like them who are just……
Yash” Officer enough stop who the hell you are to make me think that Yash Singh Raizada took wrong decision for his daughter. Now spell the beans otherwise you’ll regret for point fingers on Thapar“
Officer glance Gaurav and told all that Thapar’s are involved in money laundering and human trafficking too. None was ready to believe as both Oberoi‘s and Raichand know Thapar’s from years. Still they didn‘t believed them but then officer commanded his constable to get the laptop. He connected pen drive with laptop and with in few minutes, a clip got played in which Gaurav is having conversation with Chinese over girls smuggling.
Anika with tears glances her mother who took in her side hug consoling her. Anika cleaned her tears harshly glaring Shivaay who was acting innocent and sweet with Vikram.
Anika” Mom leave me”
Anika said removing Ankita hands
Anika” Mom I’ve fine. Badi maa, Gauri, Bhavya please take dadi and mom from here I’m coming”
Anika told walking to Vikram
Yash” Anu you go beta. I’ll handle them. Ankita take Anu inside “
Anika” Dad I’m fine and let me handle them.”
Anika” You just shut your mouth Mr Oberoi. It’s my hus….
Before Anika could complete Shivaay one glare that’s more sharp than any knife or trigger zipped Anika mouth
Shivaay” Aunty ji handle her and officers you can’t take them with you.“
Shivaay said sternly glaring Anika
Bhavya” Look have you witness yourself today that Bhavya sixth sense was also right about this Gaurav uncle. He’s not what he looks but nor Gauri di believed me nor you Om bhaiya”
Bhavya whispered in Gauri and Om ear
Gauri” Shhh….. say quiet Bhavya it’s not time for all this”
Om” Excatly Bhavya and we can’t believe what we witness.”
Bhavya” Sorry bhaiya”
ACB officers ” sorry Mr Oberoi we have to take them and these are money laudering proof you can have check on them and let us do our jobs“
Shivaay checked the papers and gets socket he forward papers to Yash who showed his hand to them gesturing as it’s not need. Yash walked to Vikram and asked for explanation who told innocently that it’s someone sabotage against them.
Yash don’t want to believe on anyone but knowing that if he let Thapar’s got arrested it will not only harm his business as Gaurv is legal adviser in his business but his daughter dignity will be ruined too. He can bear the lose in business but he can’t tolerate to lose twinkle in Anika’s eyes and whatever happened with Anika day back shudder Yash as he knows that his daughter who’s acting strong from outside, how broken she’s from inside. Though he don’t want his daughter to be with them but he’s well aware about Gaurv disgust nature too, as today if he didn‘t supported him, then he’ll play with them keeping gun on Anika’s shoulder.
Yash for once glance Anika and spoke,
Yash” Shivaay call Home Minister and infrom him about this. I want their bail in fifteen minutes”
Yash told extending his phone to Shivaay who smiled inwardly dialing HM number
PO” Mr Raizada…..
Yash” It’s matter of my daughter officer now you listen to me. I’m not denying these proofs but look I can’t accept these footage too, it can be moped too.”
Shivaay” Officers Home Minister call for you”
Officer nodded taking phone from Shivaay, having conversation with HM for few minutes both ACB officers and police officer gave lease to Thapar but they commanded both that they can’t move out of country nor even Mumbai till charges imposed on them don’t get clear.
In between this ACB told Gaurav that their properties and all assets are taken by them now Thapdar were left with no penny that shocked them to core and rest too expect one who had victorious smile on his Greek face.
Vikram” You son of pigs I’ll numb you”
Yash” Vikram control yourself let them do their jobs. Officers you do your work but they will come to police station after sometime, my daughter just got married”
Officers” Fine Mr Raichand bring them tomorrow. We’ll take your leave now. “
Soon they left Gaurav held his head in tension that where he’ll go now and what he’ll do as he is left with no penny. Yash and Tej console him saying that they are with him. Shivaay giving warm gesture to Vikram excused himself.
Gaurav” Where I’ll live….my imagine….my reputation everything is ruin. It’s just because of this bad omen “
Gaurav shouted points at Anika
Yash” Gaurav don’t call my daughter bad. Thanks her that in her love I stopped officers otherwise they would have dragged you and let me clear you if you proofed to be culprit then I’ll break all ties with you. Get that in your disgusting brain”
Vikram” Uncle… uncle please cool down I’m sorry from dad side. You know him, he never thinks before speaking and dad you should be thankful to uncle that on his saying we are standing free. Come with me I need to talk you please excuse us for while and Anika you don’t worry nothing will happen to me”

She was lost in cursing her fate when Shivaay brought her out from that zone whispering
Shivaay” Welcome home my sunshine”
He whispered in her ear
