KASH OS : AFTER THE BABY'S ASLEEP



Shilpa brought a sleeping angel in the living room, where karan was watching tv and made her lie on the adjacent couch stuffing pillows all around her little baby before making herself comfortable on the other couch with her not-so-little baby…

"I was anyways coming upstairs…" karan said lazily changing the channels as he saw shilpa adjusting angel and then coming up to him…

"mujhe bhi tv dekhna hai…" she half leaned herself on him and put her arm around his waist from the front hugging him…

He caressed her arm, his eyes still glued to the tv..

"what are you watching?" she mumbled…



"kuch hai hi nhi acha dekhne ko…" he decreased the volume and turned to her… "how was your day?" he asked fondling with her hair…

"that's my dialog you stole!" she chuckled..

He smiled and kissed her cheek… "yeah? But you had fun today?"

"hmm…kind of…and I got a jacket and a bandana for you.." she tried taking the remote from his hand to change the channel but he refused to give it.. "arre..tumhe jo dekhna hai you tell me na..i'll change..don't fuss with the remote.." she pouted and slid to the corner of the couch, away from him…."dominating freak"..she mumbled under her breath before she felt his head in her lap…he switched off the tv.. "acha door toh mat jaa.." he dig his face in her tummy as her hand involuntarily went to his hair..

"you good now?" she asked him with a little softness in her voice.. "good about what?" he looked up at her and asked.. "about angel not loving you thing?"

"haan haan voh to I am all fine now.. vaise shona…its difficult you know.."

"What's difficult?"

"Handling this mota sa bacha at home…" he nuzzled into her stomach, as he did that…

"don't you call her that again…meri beti ko nazar mat lagao!" she lightly smacked his head… "but I had kinda fun, you know.." he said taking her hand in his…

"ahan? Oh that reminds me! You were late dropping her at the day care centre na?" she asked in her typical homemaker cum mommy avatar..

"don't remind me of that…that's where she left my hand and ran away…can you believe it shona? She didn't even wave me a good bye… I mean you never forget that! Tum hamesha kitne ache se bye bolkar jaati ho…in how much ever hurry you are.." he complained with that puppy look in his eyes...

"its not even been a month since we taught her about hellos and good byes…what were you expecting? 'Bye baby,take care, I'll see you at home'?"

"you hate me!" he rolled his eyes at that…

"of course I do!" she bent down and kissed the corner of his lips making him smile..

"vaise just to let you know, she was the first baby at the centre to be picked up! In fact main jaldi hi pohoch gaya tha….and her teacher was such a flirt!"

She giggled as she caressed his hair aimlessly… "haw! Kyun?"

"she was asking for my number! And she said angel looks just like me…sweet..cute…dimpled…pata nhi kya kya keh rhi thi…acha hua meri beti ko handsome nhi kaha varna sir phod deta main uska!"

Shilpa laughed even more on that… "I know, I know… main roz jaati hoon wahan, and if by chance I am talking to you on the phone at that time, she becomes ultra sweet! I don't know log dekhte kya hain tum me.." she said naughtily..

He glared at her faking anger… "bas tumhe hi kuch nhi dikhta!"

"hmmm! Mujhe jo dikhta hai vo bas mujhe hi dikhta hai! I prefer bas aise hi rhe… if you know what I mean…" she winked at him pecking his nose..

"shilpa grover's naughty shade haan!" he got up a little and rested his head on the side, now hugging her.

"500 shades of grover! I should write a book!" she laughed at her silly joke…

"oh isse yaad aaya…angel ne tumhari book faad di.." he stated simply as he left a soft peck at the top of her chest..

"what? Kaunsi book?" she held him by his hair and brought him face to face…

"vo… pata nhi kya naam tha… chicken soup or something shayad..koi moti si book hi thi… when we came back from the day centre toh I went to keep my wallet and keys, jitne me wapis aaya she had done what she had to.." he softly made her leave his head and settled himself again..

"you'll have to get me a new copy now… and tumhe akele nhi chhodna chahiye tha na usko jana.."

"arre ek minute ke liye andar gaya tha main…meri kya galti hai!"

"bilkul tumpe gayi hai… ek minute bhi akele chhodne ka risk nhi le sakte!" she pretended seriousness…

"that's so not true! Aur vo gayi bhi tumpe hi hai… big eye lashes like you.." he touched and softly played with her eye lashes with his finger…

"eee…. Chhedo nhi.." she removed his finger away..

"kya chhedo nhi…teri beti ne poora din pata hai kitna chheda hai mujhe! Ek to vo pink dress bhi nhi pehna…it was so cute pata hai…she wanted to wear a blue one.. fir we finally settled on the white.." he told her settling his head back in her lap…

"karan…" she quietly whispered in his ear… "she's wearing a yellow one!" she giggled at his pout…

"vo shaam ko change ki thi… custard gira liya tha saara apne upar…aur mere upar bhi! And pata hai main story bhi bhool gaya tha vo roger fish waali…"

"skunk…roger skunk.." she corrected him…

"haan main bhool hi gaya tha end tak pochochte pohochte.. fir maine shaadi kara di vo skunk ki and they lived happily ever after…"

She smiled… "tum bhi bache hi ho na bilkul?" she observed the charming features of his face kissing his temple and forehead…

"hmmm…tum maa ho na…  oh! And pata hai I took her for ice cream also.. centre se waapis aate hue…"
"hmmm?aur kya kya kiya?" she listened to her baby caressing his cheek…

"aur din me maine khud omelete banaya tha…angel ne nhi khaya vaise…usko pasand nhi aaya…maine hi khaya khaali… I don't think she likes my cooking, you know.."

"but she loves you!" she kissed his lips…

"and she even made me play with her dolls..varna khana hi nhi kha rhi thi…fir we dressed that dona and brownie for for that blonde head's party…"

"blonde head is mini…vo height me sabse chhoti hai na.." shilpa explained with a smile…

"tumhe sab kuch yaad rehta hai? Inka naam and all?" his eyebrows raised in amazement..

"arre…maine hi naam suggest kiye hai na sab dolls ke…I even got her a new doll today…"

"apne liye kuch liya?" karan asked as he turned around and laid on his stomach now..

"what is happening?" shilpa asked not understanding why he turned around suddenly..

He patted his own back " arre its huring yaar…dabao na please.." he kissed her stomach..

As she started massaging his back, karan abruptly remembered something.. "arre mummi ka bhi phone aaya tha… shayad sheetal ne bataya hoga that you guys are going for shopping… unhe laga angel is also going with you… and then, when she got to her bechara daamaad is at home being a house husband toh she asked us to come over…"

"you went mummi ke ghar?"

"arre nhi…maine aise hi formality kar di..'nhi nhi…its all fine, I am taking care…'etcetera etcetra.."

"toh mujhe kyun bata rhe ho fir?"

"arre! Wife ho tum meri! Its your right to know.."

"acha theek hai..arre suno…" she clutched his hair and ade hi turn around before continuing… "tumne off ke liye baat ki?"

"what off?"

"kaam se karan…did you ask for some days off? Tumne kaha tha we'll take angel to Disneyland this time.. she's so excited about it jana.."

"arre haan that… I didn't talk…par isme poochna kya hai…bata dunga bas I won't come for a month or whatever.."

"tum king samajhte ho na apne aap ko bilkul?" she made him sit as she got off the sofa..

"arre where are you going?" he pouted combing his hair with his hand…

"upar…chalo na lets sleep…I am so tired…" she almost yawned.. he too got up… while karan held angel in his arms, shilpa took all her small pillows and quilts as they made their way upstairs to the bedroom…



"vaise…since you boss me all the time, you're the queen…" he commented as both of them adjusted their sleeping baby in the middle of the bed..

"so not true.. you're the one bossing my life for the last seven years.." she dimmed off the light and stood in front of the wardrobe looking at which night wear to wear…

"kya kar rghi ho tum? Ye shorts pehene nhi hai? Isme sona nhi tha to change kyun kiya tha dinner se pehle?"

"arre pehle I had thought I'd wear this par then I remembered kal raat ko kitni thand lag rhi thi mujhe.. I need some pajamas or something…"

He came and hugged her from behind as he kissed her neck… "kuch mat pehen.. I'll keep you warm with my body heat…"

She smacked his head.. "itni si bhi sharm nhi aati na? pevert!"

She took out a pink night t shirt and black pajamas to change from her regular sky blue t shirt and white shorts..

"dekha! Tum apne pati ko pervert keh rhi ho.. you're obviously the dominating one…queen!" his eyes fell into the mirror and he had a closer look.. "shona dekhiyo ye kya lag gaya mere muh pe.. " he rubbed his cheek as shilpa came to hi and saw.. "arre meri lipstick lag gyi hogi na.." she cleaned his cheek with her thumb.. "sindoor hai… I am not wearing a lipstick.." she murmured..

"zaalim kahin ki! Peetne ke nishan lagte hain!" he teased her..

"yeah right! Main hi toh domestic vioulence kar rhi hoon tum par! ….Open this clasp.."

he opened the clasp of her bodice and kissed her neck… "aur kya! I am planning to go to saavdhaan India or something.."

"ha! Merse number le lena!!" she hit him with the elbow  as she proceeded back to her wardrobe to get dressed completely..

"vaise shilllppaa.." karan called out as lazily as he could fro where he was standing..
"karan angel so rhi hai… can you be a little quiet?" she reprimanded now coming to the dressing table and arranging all the perfumes and hair gels that karan had messed up there…

"acha sorry.." he lowered his volume now and continued.. "I am putting the A.C on 16 degrees… you can snuggle into me if you feel cold!" he tightly kissed her cheek before jumping onto the bed and lieing down before shilps could retort back…

She pretended to be angry, then couldn't help but smile. So she went over, switched off all the lights and snuggled next to him…





Writing error, now corrected:

she didn't snuggle next to him. She snuggled INTO him..
