[He has to remember🎻]
Indian romance series💝
“No, not this one…” I said as my best friend, Anushka showed me different dresses.
“How about this one? It’ll look good with your flat tummy” she said and licked her lips.
“Find me a nice dress Anushka!” I grouse lying on the bed.
“You’re funny Ranu…
You were pretending not to like the idea of marrying prince Javan infront of your parents and here you are trying to find the perfect dress to wear” she said going through my closet which is like a room itself.
Filled with pretty Indian wears and shoes.
“It’s just that I heard so many things about him. He’s damn hot and dangerously cute. I sure want to look good for him so he likes me..
“Since we’ll be getting married. I want him to be attracted to me” I said and Anushka threw a pillow at me.
I blushed and took the magazine beside me.
“Ranu and Javan sitting on a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g” she sang.
I rolled my eyes.
“Enough singing Anu… I’ve found a dress for sale at the mall. Let’s go” I said climbing off the bed and she came out of my closet.
I took my phone from the bed.
“We’ll go to a resturant first, am hungry” she said and I chuckled..
“You’re always hungry. Look how big your cheeks are” I teased and she pouted
“Walk fast Ranu!” She said as she pulled my arm.
We left the room.
Am Ranu.. The princess of Handae kingdom and he only child of my parents, the king and queen.
Anushka is my best friend.
Earlier today, mom broke the news that the king of Bavana kingdom has chosen me to be the one to marry his son, Javan. The marriage will lead to the two families becoming allies.
I can’t wait to meet Javan.
He’s so famous and popular.
His voice has no difference from the voice of an angel.
I would assume it’s every girl’s dream to be in his arms.
I was quite happy when I learned I would be marrying him.
Anushka and I arrived at the mall and we bought more sari’s and gowns.
Tomorrow evening is going to be a blast…
“Javan, please… Open the door” I heard my mom beg from outside my door.
I didn’t move but just sat on my bed.
“Javan, please. Stop being stubborn” she added.
“Okay dear, let’s strike a deal” she said and I twitched.
“What deal?” I asked quite pissed.
“Open the door first,… Please!” She grouse.
I stood up and walked the door. I opened the door and standing before me was my pretty mom, Queen Freya.
She’s sick though but still strong.
When I was 7, she slipped into coma and woke up when I was 10.
It’s a terrible sickness and I hope it never happens again.
But am not quite happy,
I just learned that I’ll be getting married to some girl in few weeks time.
What the h*ll is that?
Mom asked her maids who were carrying her medicine for her to go and they did.
She turned to me and walked in.
I shut the door.
“Trust me Javan, Ranu is a beautiful girl with an acceptable character. I can’t just bring someone unruly to marry you” she said and I scoffed.
“Screw that! I don’t want to marry some random girl. Mom, do you know what love is?… I want to marry someone I love” I stated.
“Let’s not argue about this much further. The deal is simple, after tomorrow’s dinner and you meet princess Ranu. If you don’t like her, we’ll cancel everything but if you find something to hold on about the girl, we’re good to go. Alright, son? Just come for the dinner” she said and kissed my cheek.
I groaned but nodded.
“Fine” I muttered and she smiled.
“Good night son” she said and left the room.
I walked into my parents chambers and I heard voices.
Mom and dad.
I approached the room and the voice became audible.
“…am too scared to admit it Mona, Sakanda and his men are up to no good. They’re too powerful and evil” I heard dad’s voice say and I could tell he’s damn worried.
Sakanda, the most powerful mafia king.
He’s more like a rebel.
After his dad died, he became ruthless.
What’s going on? Why is dad scared of him.
I entered the room and they stopped talking.
“Ranu…” Mom called.
“I came to tell you, I’ve gotten everything ready for tomorrow’s event” I said and I noticed dad covered a book on his desk.
“That’s good honey, go to bed. I’ll come see you before I go to sleep” mom said.
“Goodnight” I muttered and left.
Mom and dad are being secretive.
Hope it’s not a bad thing.
Anyways, I can’t wait for tomorrow.
I stared at the map of Handae kingdom.
Am going to make sure I kill every soul that dwells in that land…
But of course, except the princess.
That is a promise.
I’ll surely get my revenge!
I sat still on a stool as Anushka applied henna on my palm. She’s very good at drawing and I think she’d be really successful if she begins her career as an artist.
The maids packed my hair for me adding Diamond stones to it.
Our ride to the next kingdom was ready.
“Am done Ranu. Do you like it?” Anushka asked.
I stared at my hands and smiled.
“You did a great job Anu” I replied.
“That’s good, now pay me” she said bringing out her palm.
“I have to pay?”
I asked not believing this crazy friend of mine.
“I want to buy some fresh fruits there at Bavana kingdom. They sell the best mangoes” she said putting her stuff away.
“Must you always think of food?”.
“Food is life” she beamed.
No wonder she’s so plump and chubby.
I rolled my eyes and stood up.
There were so many jewelries and rare gems on me.
It sparkles and glitters.
“Wow…Ranu, you look so pretty. The prince will be a fool not to like you” she said and winked at me.
I just smiled wyly
Am so nervous.
I was in my room fixing my clothe.
Of course I’ll say ‘no’.
No matter how good looking a girl is, I can’t possibly like her in a day.
Mom and dad will see they’re wrong after today’s event.
I can’t get married.
Am not ready.
The door burst open and I wonder who it was.
Nobody dare enter my room like that,
“Where’s that cute chicken of mine?” Lakshmi asked walking into the room.
She climbed on my bed and folded her legs together like a Chinese monk.
Lakshmi, my best friend since childhood.
“Hey Javan. Ready to see princess Ranu?” She asked in a teasing manner.
“Isn’t it too early to be sticking your nose into my private business?” I asked coldly and she chuckled.
“You’re still angry, aren’t you?…” She asked enthusiastically.
“Why shouldn’t I be???!!
I hate being controlled or forced into something. I don’t know this girl and I really don’t want to. No matter what, am deading this marriage!!!” I yelled furiously.
“Javan…” She called as I stormed out of the room.
I was about to get to the mom’s room when I felt Lakshmi hold my wrist stopping me.
“You have to be humble Javan. Think of your mom’s health.
For the first time in her life, she’s asking you for a Favour. Do it for her Bro” she said calmly and I exhaled sharply.
That’s why she’s my best friend.
She just knows how to talk to me.
I turned from mom’s door and turned to face her.
“Escort me to the dinning” I said non chalantly.
She smiled and held me by arm as we left.
Oh lord shiva.
Save me from this…
We had arrived at Bavana kingdom.
Ranu and I were in our ride.
We were passing the market place.
All those fruits were tempting.
I have to buy them now or I will faint.
“Ranu,Actually, I’ll meet you all at the palace later. I need to quickly buy some cherries” I said taking my phone from where it was.
I told you we are in this together” she said looking quite nervous.
“Ranu…pity my tummy” I grouse.
“You’re unbelievable Anu, just go” she jibed.
“Driver, stop here!” I yelled.
He stopped the car and I alit waving at Ranu as they drove off.
I’m sure as hell happy now.
I walked back to where I saw the fruits.
I was on the look out for the trader when I bumped into someone.
Am so plump so I lost balance almost falling but he held me by my waist pulling me back on my feet.
He held me on my waist?!!
I landed a hot slap on his dazzling cheeks.
He held it in shock.
“What? Why would you hit me after I saved your a-s from hitting the floor?” He asked abacked.
“You pervert! You intentionally walked into me and held my waist. You still have the guts to speak?!” I rapsed.
He rolled his eyes.
“I don’t blame you, you desperate fat cow?” He muttered.
My eyes widened.
Someone’s gonna die today.
I slapped him again and grabbed him by his collar.
People gathered to separate us while I pounced on him mercilessly.
We arrived at Bavana kingdom’s palace and I couldn’t be more ‘awkward’.
Am so not ready for this.
And Anushka had left me.
The royal family welcomed us warmly and we were taken to an exquisite dinning hall.
There was so much delectables and scrumptious looking meal aligned on the fancy table.
Mom and dad took their seats close to king Charan and queen Freya.
I sat on my seat.
Where’s the prince?
“Ranu, as our custom have it.
The maid will take you to the garden where you’ll be alone with Javan. You both have enough time for yourselves. To signify you both are okay with the marriage, you must return to this table with him by your side” Queen Freya stated with her calm voice.
Oh lord shiva,
What a task!
How do I do this?
Alone with Javan in a garden.
The maid approached us and signaled me to follow her.
Mom gave me an assuring look so I stood up my feet feeling wobbly…
What if he doesn’t even look at me?
