A Drive to Nariman

"You are completely stupid and not worthy of anything." She disconnects the call, getting angry on Suraj, for not being able to arrange time for tomorrow's, first day first show of 'The Lunch box'.

It's her habit, She disconnects the call, but she means that, he should call her again. He does it.
Her Phone rings up with one of their favorite song as ringing tone, "Baatein Kuch Ankaahe Si, Kuch Ann Suni Se Honelagi".  She picks up, but remains silent. He knows that, she is waiting to hear from him, more of all, she is waiting for an affirmative answer. He speaks, "Aakriti, I actually can't avoid tomorrow's meeting, It's very important for me, So Let's postpone the movie plan, I promise to take you to Nariman Point tomorrow evening"
She remains silent..
He asks "Kuch to Bolo...."

she speaks, "I am not free tomorrow evening...". She disconnects the call.

He feels, Her eagerness to meet him is justified. Movie was just an excuse, but what she all needed was him. She wants to hold him, and be with him. But due to his recent busy time in office, he had not met her since last two weeks.
Despite her denial, he knows she wants him to call back, but he doesn't, because he has a better plan for mid-night.
He drives his new car to her place at Navjeevan society, Chembur from Agarwadi, Mankhurd, 5 mins ride.
The new car is a surprise for her.
He parked his car at the nearby place, and calls her.  She picks up the call and said, "Don't call me again, I am angry on you...".
He tries to say something, but she disconnects it. She can do it, because he made her wait for 10 minutes.
He texts her, "Lets go to Nariman Point now, I am waiting outside your society". He patiently waits for the message to be delivered, and waiting for her reply. 5 Minutes passed, but he did not get any reply...
He calls her again, but what he sees, makes him stunned.
Aakriti is coming out of the gate, and he waives his hand to greet her. She is happy to see him and even he is.
He opens the door, and she enters the car. He notices that, she felt something fresh inside the car, something different.
"You know Aakriti, its full-moon night today......"
"I myself told you earlier...." replies Aakriti.

He knows, she is happy to meet him, after such a long time. Silence prevails, and he needs to break the ice.
He starts the car and switches on the AC. He slowly increases the level of fragrance in Ambi Pur installed in AC Vent of his car. The aroma, that mixed with air inside the car worked. The air became so fresh.

She smiles, and He knows that Ambi Pur worked.

She asks, "When did you buy it?"
What? My new car?
"No Stupid, I had seen your car two days back itself. I am talking about this Ambi pur. I like this fragrance of Vanilla...."
"Yeah, I know that....."

"I bought it yesterday morning, but installed it a while back. And, I can see, its working quite well now..."
"Yeah Sweetheart, I am drowned in the love at First sight with this Ambi Pur, like you had for me....."

She laughs. Then, he plays their favorite song:

Baatein Kuch Ankaahe Si
Kuch Ann Suni Se Honelagi
Kabu Dil Pe Raha Na
Hasti Humari Khone Lagi
Woooh Woooh Wooo Woo Wooh
Shaayad Yehi Hai Pyaar, Shaayad Yehi Hai Pyaar.
Keh De Mujhse Dil Mein Kya Hai
Aisa Bhi Kya Guroor
Tujhko Bhi To Ho Raha Hai
Thoda Asar Zaroor
Ho Yeh Khaamoshi Jeene Na De
Koi To Baat Ho........... 

The Ambi Pur has not only eliminated the inside odour, but also motivated to open the window for fresh air.  Throughout the ride, she enjoyed the beauty of Mumbai in the Road  through Sion Flyover, Dadar and Parel flyover and JJ flyover.
And they reached Nariman Point, the place where they wanted to be together, during midnight, since very long time.
On reaching, he parks his car, while, he can see her, dancing with happiness.
He joins her, and holds her hand. It starts raining slowly, but this rain will not stop them today. They want to be together and they are. She is singing her favorite song. She is moving her steps here and there, sometime running and sometime just on still and yet he is holding one of her hands. She is smiling, she is happy and she is expressing those moments on loud voice like a crazy girl while he is simply looking at her, glaring at her eyes and holding her fingers. She is enjoying the artificial light around Nariman Point of Queen's necklace, while, He captures the moment in Camera, to save it for future.
He knows, he has given her another special moment and she knows he is happy to see her like that. Happiness and Specialty, they both existed within them, for each other, because of each other. And this is something called as Love, the love they had rarely witnessed and the one they wanted to experience as their soul-mates ever since they, knew each other.

Love is in the air and the every blow of wind passing through him touches her. The fresh air, she had in drive has changed her mood. She has always been so close to him, understanding his Love. But then many of those times she had, let it go, unexpressed. She is a girl, and she has many other primary things for her life and She knows he has always understood those moments of her life. Yet, she knows his disappointments, he had met, during her personal choices. He waited, waited and waited, hiding his frustrations just to wait for his love, to wait for her confessions and to wait her accept him as she has today. She can feel it and She will always.

The Rain interrupts their romance at Arabian Sea. It is raining heavier now. So He asks her, "Shall we continue our ride?".

Yes, She wants him to avoid rain, but today she is also tempted to stay inside the car. They entered the car and tighten their seat belt; and he keeps moving on Marine Drive.
He asks, "Did you like it?"

She smiles. He returns a smile. In some time, they reach Girgaon Chowpatty, opposite to  Wilson College where they waited for the heavy rain to stop. Meanwhile, Aakriti asks for the camera. There were many pictures, including the few of consecutive shots. Those consecutive shots had almost no differences at all. Same pose, same background, same angles too, but he could term each of them as different pics. Few photos were blur, few were shaken but still they had some or other impressions. She acts as if she is going to delete few of pics and he immediately responds against it. She knows that he doesn't like deleting any of them. Both of them know the others heart and feel their needs, still no one chose to express.

she tilts her head on his shoulder, and he extends his left hand on her shoulder. Both of them keep quite for a moment, while she is busy watching the photos. He has always said her 'you are cute, and she keeps wondering, what is that something, which makes him feel about her, from the depth of his heart'. she is about to ask him something, but he speaks before she could speak.
"You know, your pictures are really beautiful"

"Hmmm... Is it? May be because I am photogenic"

He knows, she wants to hear something else. He replies. "I meant, you look really beautiful. You are the cutest girl, I have ever seen."

She was blessed to hear such words from him, as always. There were many guys who had appreciated her beauty and, also there were many, who had complimented her looks, but nothing ever matters other than his words. She loves hearing them again and again, because, she knows that he speaks truth from his heart.
She knows what those words means for him, and those expression also meant something to him. She decides to take the conversation a little longer.

" What if, someday you find, I've grown old and my beauty is not appealing as today?"

He knows that, behind this question, there is a voice of girl whom he adores more than anything.

He replies, "I'll fill my mind and heart with the memories of your most beautiful reflections and shall look at you with those memories, every time you speak to me..."

She knows, he always loved to listen from her. Her voice, during happiness, during craziness, during success and in the times of pain; each of them was worth listening.

So she asks him, "What if you find my voice not so melodious then?"

Then, I'll play (recorded) the best conversations we ever had, and look at your pictures, to say, you're the blessing for me, my princess"

He knows, what she wants to listen. His every word touches her heart. Yet she continues "I doubt whether, you will be calling me princess even then...."

"Do you doubt, just over those words or you doubt my faithfulness?"

She doesn't. She has known him so closely for last four years, that she can even predict his next step on most of the time. She instead choose not to reply his questions. After all, she is his sweet heart and she can take some of such things for granted. She asks another question, "what if I'm not there to hear these Golden words?"

"you've won the arguments. Let's change the topic..." He voluntarily surrenders. She knows he never wants to hear those words, nor he wants to think about such. Neither she intended to speak such.. But.. But She knows that he will understand her and He does too.
She speaks, " It Seems, that someone is not able to detect the beautiful Vanilla fragrance of Ambi Pur that lasts till 45 days?"?
Smiles return back to him. He holds her, pulling her towards himself and saying, "No, the environment is decorated with beautiful fragrance, but... "
"But? But what....?"
looking at her eyes, he says, "I want to experience this beautiful smell through my lips and my tongue...." She diverts her eyes,  hiding the eye contact, yet looking at him through mirrors. She knew what he desires, still she says, "Ambi pur Mini Velt is not to be cut or leaked, It is not for drinking you know..." Some of her childish talk tempts him to be closer to her, But this beautiful moment is something different today. His lips reach closer to her and She moves herself nearer, Letting each other drink the finest taste of night in the presence of enticing aroma of air freshener of Ambi Pur in the fragrance of vanilla.
They stay with silence to enjoy the Arabian sea and its high produced wave. The depth of dark water reflects some of the stars present in the sky of full-moon night. She is looking at those stars with all the concentration, maybe she is counting them or maybe she is only thinking about counting.
