Temptation

*Sorry Temptation and Temptation Transmuted are closed indefinitely*

Temptation

 

 

The first phase:

 

Our past has a way of defining our present and shaping our future. Good or bad. Β The scars from the past remain embedded in our soul, buried under the layers life adds. Every throb a constant reminder of their existence, of the reality of life.

 

Temptation is the journey of two successful, driven, and equally strong and hard headed individuals, coming face to face in an unforeseen circumstance. Neither is keen on the institution of marriage, but are being coerced into settling down for the sake of their loved ones. Will they be tempted to form an alliance in a mutual agreement that benefits them? Or will they continue with the future they had planned?

 

Can I tempt you to take… bite?

 

 

 

Temptation Transmuted

 

 

The second phase:

 

After almost thirty chapters, we start with the next phase of Temptation. Note: This blog is private, and access will only be granted after you engaged yourself with the first phase of Temptation.

 

As the deeply embedded scars of the past are laid bare to the naked eye, will the grief that they enshrouded transmute into absolution? Can the demons of the past truly be laid to rest? Can love be enough to transmute entrapment into deliverance?

  1. I know you have already put up the teaser but I m going to stay put n not try to take a peek into that cuz then I will make up a storyline in my head and get too involved!! Which I totally am not right now ! 😑 that’s the truth!! Anyhoo, twiddling my thumb until Wednesday!! By the way, first chapter proves ASR doesn’t use his shatir-Harvard brain when it comes to Khushi!! Have you seen a moth NOT attracted to the flames (Akki says to ASR, quit being stubborn n give it up already cuz yeh to meri Bhabhi hai pagle)… See what I did thereπŸ˜‰ goes to show I do have a life outside of ffs that come up as result of Arhi/Arshi/ASR Khushi/IPKKND/IPKKND ASR chokri/IPKKND JIGS/IPKKND ASR expellarmius/IPKKND Meera/IPKKND ANNONYMOUS/ *+Arhi ffs πŸ‘©πŸ½

  8. Hey Dear Writer,

    Not again :'( .

    This time do something which someone can read but can’t copy paste or save. Now I am feeling very very sad…. how dare they? Only because of few people we all are upset and things are not going in a smooth way. Hope things will be fine. We are always with you.

    Stay away from our Arhi stories….. you plagiarism.

  11. Hello Jigs! Was sad to read that your stories were plagiarized πŸ™

    It is shameful that people do that. I just don’t get it. How does one do it and sleep in the night or see themselves in the mirror. Glad that you could take care of it. Your readers are always standing with you and supporting you!

  12. So far on temptation- I love the fact that Khushi is so strong. It takes a special kind of person to go trough a childhood like hers and still be able to achieve success and focus on the positives. What an inspiration!!! I guess in life everything boils down to attitude. Experience does shape you but your attitude will change your life course. In Arnav she has found a friend and of course lover!!! Life always finds the best for youπŸ‘

    1. You haven’t given me the courtesy of engaging with my story, so I fail to see why replying to you should take priority over another. If you knew me, then you would also know that I would never want any reader of mine to “beg”. And I don’t do well with the tone in your comment. Consider this a confirmation that you will not be receiving access to my blog.

      All the best!

      1. Hello that was my pathetic attempt at satire which failed miserably . I did not mean to insult you . So no complaints about you denying access to your blog . That is your prerogative . Wish you the very best in your literary journey . Au revoir.

    1. Feel free to catch up and provide your thoughts on the first phase of the story before requesting access on Temptation Transmuted.

    1. Looking at your comments, it seems you have barely engaged with the story. While I appreciate you reading my stories, unfortunately I won’t be able to give you access to TT as I am allowing access to those who are well engaged with the story through their feedback.

      If you are interested you can read my open work. Though I would suggest you engage yourself should you want to be considered for access when the other blogs are made private.

      All the best!

  28. Hi Jigs,

    I am back here asking for access to Temptation Transmuted…been a reader and commenter since your IF story Revealed….re-reading Stripped again and enjoying it. I have been a regular reader of Temptation as well and have engaged with comments as much possible. Probably not as regular as you would have wanted but pretty engaged. Would really appreciate if you could grant me access. Would love to continue reading Arnav and Khushi’s journey.

    Cheers,
    Sapna ❀️

  29. Hi Jigs…. trust you are well! It’s sad that some us that read and post comments on each chapter to show you our appreciation have been not been invited to read the next chapter on Temptations due to those who have sticky fingers and I’m not speaking for others but for myself though I completely understand your reasons. Like I mentioned before in my comment for chapter 15 of Stripped I look forward to your blogs every week. Kindly grant me access to appreciate more of your amazing writing! Will be waiting for your reply. Have a super awesome day 😊

    1. Thanks, doing well! I can guarantee any reader that has commented on each and every chapter does have access to TT. Including those who have commented more often than not. Admin abilities on my blogs allow me to run those checks to ensure that. After reviewing your history, I am not quite sure you would fall in the category of commenting for each chapter with about a total of 20 comments across Temptation, TT and Stripped.

      I appreciate all of my readers from silent to those who are engaged, and denying access to a limited group of readers is not something I enjoy doing. With that being said, I will keep your name for consideration when I invite additional readers the next time I send them out.

  32. Hi Jigs.

    I had been reading Temptation Transmuted. I commented till Chapter 10 on it:-)

    I thought to comment all at the end because I wanted to complete the story before you close the blog and also the story was getting interesting.

    As expected Khushi wanted to stay away from Arnav to spare him the pain and burden. Though Arnav was upset I didnt expect him to throw Khushi’s past in her face and compare her to her father. Khushi must have shattered and felt to alienated. She probably realized there is no one for her again and no home too. Still she came back and asked to stay a few days till she went to New York.
    Arnav also is insecure of losing Khushi because of his past hence he blurted stuff he wouldn’t normally.
    At least he said Sorry and tried to make the best arrangements for Khushi and decided to be friends. They both at least made that attempt towards each other instead of holding on to the bitterness because you dont give up on a person based on few words said when one is upset, when there is stronger deeper bond and they have been with each other through the lows and been each others strength.

    Khushi’s arrival in NY was so different and her annoyance at the cook calling Arnav by his name was amusing to me. My girl seemed jealous.
    Though she was hurt recalling how Arnav was to carry her in her arms when they went to live there. What could have been and how things turned out. Arnav still wanted her safety which we later realized how he was at risk which would put Khushi at risk too.

    Khushi’s every need was so well taken care of by him. Arnav is the meanwhile was trying to keep things under control living out of suitcase.

    Khushi’s research and working on new treatments helped her with the 1st patient who turned out to be her half brother. Khushi inherently is warm soft hearted girl who invited a patient to her house without knowing it would upset Arnav so much. Not to mention him being possessive and concerned about her safety.
    I loved how Arnav made the few days he was in NY special so much that Khushi herself went to the loft with her baggage. The heart wants what it wants. The distance helped them realize that they can’t live without each other . Though Khushi understands its she who brought the distance but Arnav accepted that he too needed a break because they needed a break.

    The way Khushi handled the matter of Bunny’s treatment maturely without letting the past bother her was admirable. However I was kind of wondering why she gave the couple the time of the day. The way the man held her wrist was enough for Khushi to press charges against him. It could’ve hurt her enough to affect the surgery. She could’ve got a restraining order for both these idiots.
    Anyway thankfully the surgery went fine and she went home to Mumbai to her Arnav. What was surprising is Khushi managed to keep her arrival a secret from Arnav. Finally they both met and come together forever because they knew there is no way they can’t live without each other.
    I like their love confession finally it was long overdue.

    Finally as per their original plan they made it to NY together and Arnav fulfilled the ritual to carry her in his arms while entering their NY home.
    Their journey and supporting each others careers is amazing. They developed a new bond with Bunny.
    Khushi overcame her apprehension about being a good mother. The way she had to announce her pregnancy was amusing because Arnav wouldnt wait for it. Boy he wouldnt believe it.

    Khushi’s mood wings were kind of hilarious specially about the nose pimple but when it came to labour pain she handled it calmly. I loved the name given by Nani and she has discussed this name with Arnav. She still feels she isn’t able to be a good mother when she couldn’t burp the kiddo which Arnav did so easily.

    I loved their journey coming back to Shantivan living together while Khushi got awarded for her achievements in her field. Khushi earned so much love and big family not to mention the achievements in her field that could make anyone proud. She came out stronger despite the past and proved nothing is impossible if you move ahead positively ignoring the negativity around. Though Khushi at every point had a chance of breaking down losing her way when she lost her mother or her Nani but she managed to focus on her studies and her work to divert her mind and she found love and family along the way. She got a loving brother and her very own little family with her husband and kids.

    Arnav has been the best life partner for Khushi. Standing by her and supporting her in achieving her dreams and being there protecting her every step of the way. The way he punched that man in Udaipur and in NY showed how no one gets away hurting his Khushi. As much as Khushi disapproved of it Arnav was right in punching the day lights of that man for the things he said about Khushi even after she treated his son and gave him a new life. That man and his wife were low lives who needed to be away from Khushi and his family.
    Though Khushi’s pain was evident Arnav too yearned for love and family. He finally found love in Khushi. When we look back it seemed like Love at 1st sight. They both are made for each other. He has been the best husband and a doting father to Krish by giving indulging him in his little pranks while Khushi tries to teach him to be obedient. They both have had difficult childhoods and they both want to shower Krish with love and care.

    The journey of temptation has been amazing and I have felt all the emotions with this story the joy the happiness and the tears. Its been a beautiful story ending with Arshi having an addition to their little family. Wish we got more of Arshi moments and their moments with their babies. I can’t have enough of them. I wanted to know if they cut down on some work to spend more time with each other and their kids.

    Jigs Thank you for this beautiful story of Arshi. Hoping you would write another one on Arnav & Khushi soon…
