Arhaan woke up in the morning to find Hoor laying half on him. She was covered by the blanket till her shoulders. Arhaan could see the delicate structure of her bones.
Her face was glowing, but tiredness was also clear. Arhaan kissed the top of her head, caressing her hair. "My brave girl." he said.
Arhaan didn't wake her up for university but got out of bed. He covered her properly and went to take a bath. He was radiating with happiness today. After showering, he went to the garden and plucked some roses for his Hoor. He called his PA to tell that he would be late.
When he was done with everything, he went to the room and prepared a bath for Hoor.
"Hoor e Arhaan! Wake up." Arhaan said caressing her hair. She finally seemed to wake up.
Hoor found Arhaan leaning over her when she woke up. She remembered the events of the last night and blushed red. She tried to hide h
Next day, Arhaan and Hoor went to university. Arhaan was taking the lecture. He asked the students, "Are there any questions?""Yes sir! Are you married?" Maryam asked smiling boldly.Arhaan's eyes fleeted to Hoor for a second. "Yes, I am!" he said sternly. He won't have answered such a personal question, but he wanted to tell everyone that he was taken. He didn't want Hoor feeling insecure or sad."I won't mind being his second wife." a whisper was made, but it was loud enough for Arhaan to hear."I definitely would. There is no space in my life for anyone except my wife. And make sure I don't hear such stupid talk again." Arhaan said with a hard look on his face. Many diverted their eyes, scared of his hard look.Hoor was happy about what happened, but she also got scared of his angry look.Arhaan left for office after taking class. When Hoor went home in th
After 4 years,Hoor was smiling, giving instructions to the servants. Life had been good to them. It was Arhaan's birthday and Hoor was planning a surprise for him. Like every other year, Hoor didn't wish him as the clock hit 12 am. She didn't even mention his birthday. Arhaan was frowning again and again, seeing Hoor behave so casually. Otherwise, she made sure to make everything special for him. She won't even let him go to office but this time, she didn't even wish him."Ma'am, please sit down. Sir won't like you standing for so long in this condition." Mary said reminding her of Hoor's 4-month pregnant state. Her small baby bump wasn't visible in loose clothes. "I am fine." Hoor said smiling. When everything was arranged, Hoor went to get ready. She wore a long frock in red colour as Arhaan loved to see her in bright colors. She was smiling the whole time she was getting ready. Her plum cheeks were more plum and redder, all thanks to healthy eating. Hoor asked all the servants t
After a year, Arhaan woke with his baby girl (Asmara) on his right pectoral and Hoor laying half on his left side. Her hand was on their daughters back, on top of which Arhaan had his hand.He smiled and kissed the heads of both. He couldn't have asked for anything more. Soon Hoor woke up. She tried to move away, but Arhaan pulled her closer for a morning kiss.When he let her go, Hoor was breathing heavily and her cheeks were red. "Arhaan!!!" she said in a scolding tone looking at their daughter, who was still sleeping peacefully. Arhaan chuckled softly and touched her cheek. He missed the extra fluffiness of them. Hoor was almost back to her original size after pregnancy. Her cheeks were still fluffy, but Arhaan missed the extra softness she had gotten during pregnancy.Hoor went to the restroom shaking her head. Asmara had also started waking up. Arhaan got up and changed her diaper. Then gave her a milk bottle.He was making weird faces, making his daughter laugh throughout the se
Hoor's pov :It was my wedding day, but I couldn't feel any excitement. This day was like any other day of my life, filled with a distant fear , just today the fear was intensified. I was sitting at a salon ,a beautician muttered "she's so pretty , keep her makeup light ,her beauty shouldn't be hidden by makeup ". I still didn't say anything .My dupatta"head drap " was being set, when my stepmother came to get me ."Pull it on her face also" she said in a stern voice. The dresser placed it in a way that it covered my face till my chin. I was happy about that, atleast now I didn't have to bear people staring at me. I knew many of the beauticians were imagining if I am dumb or deaf, because I haven't uttered a word or told them any of my choices .They did all the work on me by their choice ."Let's go! "my stepmother said and we headed out. I could feel her eyes boring in to me , but I said nothing. I lea
Hoor’s POV :It was time for ruksati .I couldn't feel any sadness taking over . Father placed a hand on my head, stepmother gave me a quick hug , not that I got a chance to return it . I have never been close to them, why would I've been sad about leaving them .The veil hid me from people's eyes, they couldn't see my indifference expression .While sitting in car, I just hoped that Allah will shower his mercy and my life wont go any worse. I didnt think i would be able to handle any more pain .Third person's pov:Arhaan also took his seat and they left for his mansion . His guests had left from there . It was only him and Hoor returning to Randhawa mansion .The watchman opened the gate and the car slid in, Arhaan stopped the car and headed inside without a backward glance . A servant (Mary )came forward and helped Hoor come out . Arhaan had went towards his study
Chapter 3Marry went and took Hoor with her. Hoor sat on the breakfast table, cook came and started placing food on table .She was also mesmerized after seeing Hoor. Pancakes, omelets , boiled eggs and different type of sliced fruits were placed infront of Hoor.She looked at the whole table, but a sigh left her lips and she took a boiled egg and some sliced fruits.she kept her eyes down on her plate . The innocence on her face was making Mary and the cook swoon over her even more.Hoor went to her room after breakfast . She had seen that her books were already placed in the bedroom. She took one and went towards the indoor pool which could be seen clearly through her room. There were chairs and plants placed at the side. She took a seat and settled down.She went down for lunch , after that she decided to take a nap. In the evening , she was sitting in the pool area, whe
Arhaan was getting more and more restless with each passing days, he wanted Hoor to ask for money or for anything which would show her greedy nature like her family . But she didnt even try to talk to him or asked for anything . She seemed content in what she was given. Thinking bad about her was getting difficult for him with each passing day .Its been a week and he had decided to talk to her . Maybe she would give him a reason to hate her , maybe he would stop feeling such protectiveness or attraction towards her .It was Sunday , he decided to do breakfast with Hoor. He liked to do breakfast in his room or in balcony when he was alone . He only sat on the dining table when someone was their to join him. His room was an apartment in itself . There was a sitting area, poolside , dressing room all connected to it .He entered the room with all his walls up , he didnt want to l
Hoor froze on her way out , seeing Arhaan standing in the middle of the room with his arms wrapped below his chest .He looked at her with a raised eyebrow "does it take you 37 minutes to change?” He asked looking at his watch .Hoor flushed and started looking here and there .Arhaan was enjoying teasing her."Come and sleep now "he said and Hoor looked at him wide eyed."Wont....you leave? "She asked looking at him with flushed cheeks. It was a big hit on Arhaan's ego, girls died for his closeness and his own wife wished for him to leave her alone .He swallowed hard to control his anger and moved towards her.Hoor noticed the change in his demeanor, she averted her eyes down.Arhaan wrapped his arms around Hoor's waist and leaned down, so that his face was closer to her. He held her chin and made her look at him. The moment his eyes met her blue pools, he felt his anger melting away ."You know , I'm
