Not proof read,  forgive the typos

Arnav was shocked when he read the papers.  When did this happen?  How did he not get to know about this? Arnav was utterly shocked to see his signatures on the papers. It definitely did not look like someone forged it. It was his. How could he be so careless? 
How could he sell his entire property to Shyam?  As far as he remembered,  Shyam had not given him any papers to sign,  and neither had Anjali. Then how did this happen?

Hold on,  2 months back Khushi had come to him with some files saying that Akash had given them to get his signatures. Did she give him this as well? Arnav was hell shocked.

How can my Khushi betray me? No she can't do this,  I am sure that creep must have blackmailed her to do this, and that's why these papers never reached him. Khushi was smart enough to hide these papers from going into wrong hands.

He felt ashamed of himself. He always doubted her,  always accused her of having an affair with Shyam, but despite his bitter words and ill treatment towards her, she saved him. She saved the property from going into wrong hands. She was always there for him, but he was filled with so much hatred for her that he could never see her goodness. And what had he done to her?

He gulped his emotions. He shouldn't have hurt her.

I am sorry Khushi!

He whispered to himself. Arnav's thoughts came to a halt when he heard the knock on the door. Khushi was standing with a glass of milk. She stepped inside and placed the tray on the table.

"HPji was busy so I.. " her words stuck when he pulled her into his embrace.

It took her a few seconds to realize what was happening.

Khushi slowly put her arms around Arnav's back. She didn't understand what was going on and what made him hug her all of a sudden. She was about to shove him, but she didn't feel like pushing him. He seemed quite upset and his silence made her worried.

"Arnavji, what happened? "She asked softly.

"Thank you " he said. Khushi was confused.

How can I tell you what you have done for me? You saved my property from going into the wrong hands. I need to know more about what had happened in the past between Shyam and you.

Arnav broke the hug and Khushi looked at him with a confused expression. He cursed himself for getting weak,  what will he answer her now? Khushi waited for him to speak but when he didn't,  she herself spoke up.

"What happened?  Why are you thanking me?"

"Nothing. Did you finish planning for tomorrow's event? "

"You cannot change the topic. Why are you so upset? What happened? "

He quickly thought of something.

"If not for you,  I would have never realized that I was destroying our lives. You took a right decision for us... for me, for you and Lavanya. I just wanted to thank you for making me realize how important it is to take care of the person whom you love the most and to trust them" He said the last sentence genuinely.

Khushi thought that maybe he was saying about Lavanya,  but he was saying about her. She was not here to listen how much he loves Lavanya and so on.

"I should go" she said,  masking her sadness.

"No you cannot" he said,  holding her hand.

"Excuse me? " she said

"You are excused,  but now when you are already here,  why not chat for some time? " he said,  winking his eyes. A few seconds ago,  he was so serious but now he was back to his flirting mode.
