Mehul is a handsome, decent, and nice young man settled in New Delhi who is the son of a leading diamond merchant. He is forced to marry the daughter of his father's friend as they were betrothed to each other since they were kids. Who gets betrothed in this century? He marries her with a promise to himself that she would regret that she married him. Megha is very beautiful, smart, witty, talented, and feisty interior designer. The concept of being engaged to someone she knows nothing of doesn't particularly appeal to her either. They start their marriage by hating each other and gradually fall in love. Let's enjoy their journey with them.

Chapter 1

Mehul's POV

" Mehul, your dad called up. He wants to talk to you immediately. " Mom told me as soon as I came back after walking my friend Rahul and his wife Priya out.

Rahul was going to London for 2-3 weeks so he came to meet me. They are so cute and made for each other. I am really happy for Rahul, he has always liked her.

" Ok mom, I will call him right away, but can you tell me, it is regarding what? "

" How do I know beta, why don't you call and ask him? " Mom said.

I called up my father, he picked up the phone on the 4th ring.

" Hello, dad !! Did you call me? Mom said you called up and you wanted to talk to me immediately. What is the matter? Dad, is everything alright? Are you fine? "

" I am fine son, I want you and your mom to come here immediately. Take the next flight and come to Surat it is very urgent son come fast."

" Ok dad, we will be on the next flight, but you are scaring me. Is everything alright? Why don't you tell me? Is everything alright dad? "

" Trust me, Son, everything is fine I just need you and your mom here. Please come fast. I will tell you everything once you are here. Okay now go and pack and before that just book your tickets. "

" Ok dad," I said but I was sure something was not right. What was it?

" Mom, dad is calling us there as soon as possible. So please pack, we have to be on the next flight. I am a bit worried... What is the problem? Why is dad calling us so urgently?"

" I have no idea Mehul now please go and let me pack for both of us. " I went to my room upstairs to get ready.

Though I tried not to think about it, I was still wondering why he was behaving in a mysterious way. Dad went to Surat all of a sudden about 3 days back. What was going on?

Why was he not telling me anything? I was missing Mudit bhai. He is just 2 years older than me but I am very close to him. He is my elder brother, friend, mentor, and partner in crime.

He handles our dad very well. Much better than I can. He has this natural ability to make people confess. I wish he was here right now. He would have solved the mystery in no time. But he is on a world tour with his wife Sneha.

They got married last month. She is a wonderful girl. They make just a perfect couple... Cool, funny, witty...

Missing you Bhai. We reached Surat and drove to our ancestral Haveli ( mansion). Our family has been dealing in diamonds for many decades now. My father Mr. Vipul Damodar Shah is the most famous diamond merchant in the country.

Most of the time he and his mom are spending in Surat and Mudit and I work from New Delhi. We have our own jewellery houses all over India. I joined my family business only last year after finishing my MBA.

Bhai is managing the overseas orders and I am managing the store chains with him.

Gopal Kaka is waiting for us anxiously. He is the caretaker of our ancestral haveli in Surat." How are you Gopal Kaka?" I hugged him and he hugged me back.

He smiled brightly and said, " I have been waiting for you Beta Ji. " then he asked a manservant to take our luggage to our rooms. He went inside to order the Maharaj Ji ( traditional chef or cook) to serve food for us and went to inform dad that we have reached.

Everything looked normal so what was the urgency? Let's forget that and enjoy food... I really enjoyed the Undhiyu - poori, khandvi, raita, and shrikhand.

Dad came home after a few hours. I went running towards him and asked, "What is the matter dad? You seem to be very tense. Are you alright? Is anything wrong with the business? Dad, please tell me."

He smiled and told us to relax and get ready as we had to go to his best friend Suresh uncle's place.

What ????? Here I was anxious that something was wrong somewhere and my dad wanted us to go to some dinner at his friend's house. Seriously?

Chapter 2

Mehul's POV

" Dad, you wanted us to come as soon as possible to go and have dinner at Suresh uncle's place. Are you serious? I was so tense that something was wrong. Did we come all the way from Delhi to Surat to attend a dinner? Is it some kind of a joke dad.? "

" Relax son, trust me nothing is wrong, go and get ready. We are getting late. We will talk once we get back. "

I was irritated but got ready as I didn't want to argue with him. We all reached the uncle's haveli. It was as lavish as ours... standing there in all its glory.

Suresh Uncle, I mean, Mr. Suresh Mansukh Kothari is a very traditional man. His values are quite deep-rooted. He is one of the biggest exporters of Indian ethnic handicrafts. I was always fascinated with the beautiful artworks that increased the glory of their Haveli ( mansion).
