Made for each other?

They had been together for two whole years, whether at the workplace or at home. They were totally inseparable. Jai and Arshi were made for each other, but still could not gather courage to tie the knot, even though they were living together. Jai had gone through a tough time when his first marriage collapsed and he had vowed not to get into the tangles of marriage again. Arshi knew this well and was okay with it. But her clock was ticking. Even though they had successful careers, the thought of a child lingered in Arshi’s mind. She wanted to feel complete, and it was motherhood alone that could give her that feeling.

One day, while having lunch together, Arshi did try to raise the question of ‘marriage for the sake of society’, only to be snubbed by Jai. “Have we ever thought of society?” and “Do you have time for marriage mumbo jumbo?” Arshi had no option but to remain quiet after that.

When Anand joined the office as a manager, he won many hearts right away due to his witty nature. Incidentally, he had to sit next to Arshi and soon after, her life was in for a change. Anand made Arshi laugh and slowly he made his way into Arshi’s heart, only to learn later that she was already taken. But he understood that something was wrong.

Jai and Arshi had lunch together and did not allow any third person as a rule. But one day when Arshi asked Jai if Anand can have lunch with them, he couldn’t say no.  “I have to talk to Arshi. I have to put things right.” But Arshi had already made her choice.
