Read Story: SEASON 1 EPISODE 21
“Why are you looking like you just saw a ghost? Are you sick?” Her mother asked with a concerned face.
“I’m okay mom. Geez! I never knew you loved me so much,”she said sarcastically and rolled her eyes, taking a slice of toast and smashed it with her front teeth.
“Why do you look so gloomy sister in law?” Dev asked with a smug smile. “Mom is right. You don’t look so good.”
Sanyukta frowned and stared at him. “Who told you that you can talk to me huh?”
“Sanyukta stop it,”her mother scolded.
“But mom tell him not to talk to me. Tell him that if he cherished his life then he will stay away from me and my sister. He might be your son in-law but I have never accepted him as my own so I won’t hesitate to cut his throat and I won’t go to jail for it,”she sneered picked up a bread knife and swifted it around before gesturing at Dev’s throat.
Her mother snatched the knife from her and shook her head in disappointment. “I don’t know what will become of you silly girl. One day you are going surprise us. You will walk in here and tell us that you are a gangster.”
“Wow mom,you never told me that we are connected in such a way,that you know my every thought,”she sheepishly said battering her eyelashes.
Dev cleared his throat and asked Sanju to pour a cup of tea. “Erm… Sanyukta you must be happy today, isn’t it?”
She frowned at him in question.
“I mean to say your alliance with Arnav Raizaidah will be fixed today. I suggest you fix yourself first. We don’t want them running away just by looking at your ghostly face.”
“Alliance? What are talking about?” Sanjana asked him.
“Your sister’s alliance,”their father said with a proud smile as he sat down at the breakfast table.” I was just in the call with Mr. Raizaidah and he said they will be coming over for lunch and they are bringing the shagun as well.”
Of all the things she could have done,she laughed hysterically almost chocking on her food.
They all stared at her like she had gone bananas.
She coughed and took a deep breath. “Forgive me. I kind of have a funny bone whenever dad says somethings,”she softly giggled and smiled. “That was a lame joke dad.”
“It was not a joke,”he said deadpan.
Her face turned murderous that everyone couldn’t help but flinched a little.
“My marriage alliance? Are you kidding me!”she shouted. “Without my consent!”
“The boy’s family has agreed and according to our culture,the boy’s family has an upper hand in everything,”her father said sternly.
“I will not get married to him. Call Me. Arnav and tell him that no wedding will take place and no alliance will be fixed today. I had told you that if I have to get married then it has to be the man of my choice and not an arranged marriage.”
“Now listen here young lady,you will get married. The Raizaidahs are coming over this afternoon and I expect you to be present. That’s the end of discussion,”her father abruptly stood up from the table and walked away.
“Can’t you ever do anything with no drama?” Dev asked.
“What did you just say?” She threatened urging towards him to punch his face but her sister held her back and shook her head into no.
She hissed and stormed back to her room.
