“Destined To Be” ~ Part 1-35

“Geet! Geet get up u lazy head. It’s been 10 am nd u r still sleeping” her Badi Maa said continuously wid her futile attempt of waking her up

 

“Just 5 more mins. Badi Maa. After dat I’ll pakka get up” She said while taking her out from blanket showing her 5 fingers symbolizing minutes, her whole body still covered in blanket.

 

Badi Maa: Since last 1 hr m listening Ur 5 mins. C’mon its enough nw. get up fast.

Geet: Badi Maa dis one is d last tym. Pls 5 more mins.

Badi Maa: not a minute more Geet c’mon Get up nw.

 

“Arey Maa let her sleep Na, y r u making futile attempt of waking her up” Said Sameera, Geet’s cousin nd her Badi Maa’s daughter.

 

“Sameera u’ll not defend her dis tym. U nd Ur Father has literally spoiled her a lot. Dis tym I’ll not listen to any one of u” she said wid a complaint in her voice.

 

“Ok Maa as u say. Main to sirf isliye bol rahi thi because Geet has been awake till 6 in d morning due to her project” Sameera said making a baby face

 

Badi Maa: Project? Which Project?

Sameera: Wo the same project which she got during her vacations. Whole night she had worked on it nd has slept at 6 in d morning.

 

“Den y didn’t u told me before dis. I was waking her up unnecessarily” She said with a worried voice.

 

Badi Maa: Geet, Beta tu aaram se soja ok. I’ll make sure dat no one will disturb u not even Ur Bade Papa.

 

“Nahi Maa u r right we should wake her up nw. Afterall its 10 of morning nd Gud girls should be wake up by nw.” Sameera said in a dramatic way.

 

“Kya kar rahi ho Di? Badi Maa ko mana ke hi manogi kya?” Geet said under her breath

 

“Pagal ho kya? She’s been awake till 6 nd u r asking me to wake her up? Let her sleep for sum more tym. Rest is also necessary for Gud health” Badi Maa said getting concerned for Geet.

 

“Maa abhi aap ye bol rahe ho den u’ll say dat I nd Dad has spoiled her” She said in a complaining voice

 

“I’ll not say anything like dis. My Bachha has been awake whole night. Nw let her sleep for sum more tym nd u come wid me in d kitchen I need ur help over dere” Badi Maa said in a Authoritive voice.

 

“Ok Maa as u say” Sameera nodded innocently slightly smiling on d success of her plan.

 

“Have a Gud sleep my sweetest daughter. Today I’ll make all Ur Fav. Dishes for Lunch” Badi Maa said while Kissing Geet over d blanket nd moves out from d room.

 

As soon as she stepped out from d room Geet removes d blanket nd gives a hi-five to Sameera who was standing near by. Geet parents have died in an accident wen she was 2 years old nd since den she was living wid d family of her father’s elder Brother who had never treated her less den her own daughter. Geet was d apple of everyone’s eye including her Badi Maa who although be strict wid her at times but Geet didn’t mind dat because she knows dat she loves her from d core. Geet didn’t remembered her parents clearly but for one thing she was sure dat dey too cant give her dis much Love nd happiness wat her Bade Papa, Badi Maa nd Sameera Di is giving to her nd she never felt dat dey r not her parents infact she always considers herself as d part of dis family.

 

“Geet one day u’ll definitely make me stuck into a big mess” Sameera said while hitting her head playfully.

 

Sameera was not only her elder sister but her best friend for whom Geet can do anything nd go to any extent.

 

“Oho C’mon Di! Tum to aise keh rahi ho jaise maine tumse kaha tha mere liye jhooth bolne ko. Waise it’s a very bad thing ha Flight Lt. Sameera Handa aur Jhooth wo bhi apni Maa se, Chi! Chi! Babaji kya zamana aa gaya hai” Geet said in a full dramatic way to which Sameera holds her ears tight.

 

Geet: Ouch Di! It hurts pls leave.

Sameera: Acha nw it hurts hhmmm. Agar maine Maa ko bata diya hota ki madam Geet Raat bhar project nahi bana rahi thi balki Ranbir Kapoor ki movies dekh rahi thi to meri jagah ye Kaan Maa ne pakda hota nd here u r teasing me

Geet: Acha Di Sorry Last tym. Pls forgive me. Pls Pls Pls

 

Geet said literally pleading her nd Sameera instantly melts.

 

“Pagal, waise I dnt understand wat interesting u find in dat Ranbir Kapoor dat u drool over him so much” Sameera said rolling her eyes

 

“Di ye poocho usme kya interesting nahi hai. His body, his looks, his style, his killer smile, his persona, uski wo killer looks. Haye! I just cant take my mind away from him. The way he performed dat Khuda jaane wala step nd wo Anjana Anjani me he looks so deadly. o gosh! I was dead den nd dere only” Geet said wid a dreamy look.

 

“Geet tu sach much pagal hai. U r drooling over him like he’s Ur Dream Man” Sameera said while rolling her eyes

 

“Di! Tum to ho the Great Flight Lt. Sameera Handa so tumhara Dream Man to Macho Man types ka hoga na. U knw Rough nd Tough types. But I m different mujhe to Ranbir Kapoor jaisa Chocolaty Boy chahiye who is as romantic as him. Wo Angry Young Man types nahi jo har baat pe bas gussa karna jaanta ho” Geet said wid a pouting face.

 

Sameera: Geet tu totally Pagal aur Filmy hai, tujhe pata hai ye baat

Geet: I knw but jaisi bhi hoon I’ll always be ur lovable sister like dis only for whom u can say lie to even Badi Maa also

 

She said while hugging her tight.

 

Sameera: Fine enough nw. dnt get emotional dis much. Ek din main apni saari help ka hisaab vasool kar loongi.

Geet: Promise Di! Mana karu to Definitely 2 thappad laga dena.

Sameera: Pagal! Chal enough of ur Bak-Bak. Nw go nd Sleep or Maa will cum to know about our lie.

 

Sameera was about to go outside wen Geet stops him

 

Geet: Di!

Sameera: Ab kya hua Geet?

Geet: Mujhe mera Dream Man milega na?

 

Sameera could do nothing but smile at her little sister innocence

 

Sameera: Zarur Milega nd agar nahi Mila den I’ll find him for u. I promise.

 

“O Di! I Love you so much” Geet said wid a smile on her face nd once again gone to sleep dreaming of his prince charming

 

**************************************************************

 

Whole house was filled wid guests nd lots of rush was dere. It seems some preparations is going on over dere for some ceremony. Whole house was decorated beautifully wid Flowers nd curtains. Though it was kept as a simple ceremony nd very few close relatives were only invited but yet dere was lots of hassle going on.

 

There she was sitting in her Room in front of Mirror in Bridal Attire nd was looking d most beautiful bride of d world but by the forlorn look on her face anyone can easily tell dat she’s getting scared for unknown reason. But she hides dat worry behind her smile just for d sake of her family. Dis is not wat she dreamt of yet dis is d best dat she can do at dis moment for d person she loves the most nd she’s happy to fulfill her last wish rather den her own dream. She looked at the photograph in d dresser nd a lone tear escaped from her eye remembering d old tymes.

 

“Geet” she heard her Bade Papa calling from behind nd she instantly wiped dat tear away nd look behind only to find her Bade Papa nd Badi Maa standing behind. She instantly go nd hugged her Bade Papa nd cried silently in his embrace.

 

“Geet beta, I m sorry. I m sorry for all dis. I knw u never ever thought of dis marriage. Ur dreams nd Ur expectations are sumthing else but yet u are doing dis” he said while rubbing her back gently consoling her.

 

Geet instantly came out from his embrace nd her heart cried seeing d guilt on d face of the person who was her ideal.

 

“Geet abhi bhi der nahi hui hai beta. We can never go against Ur wish. If u r not ready for dis marriage den we can just call it off. Nothing is more important den u for us” her Badi Maa added wid d tears in her eyes.

 

Geet: Badi Maa, Bade Papa ye aap log kaisi baat kar rahe ho. Y r u both feeling guilty for no reason. I m happy trust me I m very much happy. I was crying because I m going to miss u all, dats it.

Bade Papa: Geet u r still not dat big dat u can lie to me. Just answer my one question was dis the Dream dat u had seen for Ur Marriage, for Ur Life partner?

Geet: I knw Bade Papa dis is not wat I dreamt of. But Sapne to sapne hi hote hai Na. so wat if dis is not at I dreamt of but it is Sameera Di’s Last wish nd her wish is more important for me rather den my own Dreams.

Badi Maa: But Geet�

Geet: Badi Maa, dnt worry for anything I m happy dat m going to fulfill my Di’s Last wish. Nd dere r so many marriages in which Love happens after marriage may be same thing is written in my Destiny too.

Badi Maa: Do u really Think dat he’ll Love you? Do u think dat he’ll give u dat place in his heart which he had given to Sameera?

Geet: I don’t know nd I don’t want to think about it also all I knw is dat I m going to fulfill d last wish of dat person whom we all loved a lot including him also.

Bade Papa: is dis Ur Last Decision beta?

 

Geet slowly nodded her head in yes nd Badi Maa just hugged her tight

 

“If Mohinder nd Rano would be alive today den they would be so proud of u” her Bade Papa said while patting her head.

 

Bade Papa: I guess nw we should take Geet Downstairs. Its tym for d Marriage nw nd everyone is waiting for her.

Bade Maa: hhmmm. Geet beta we are waiting for u outside. Come fast hhmmm

 

Geet nodded nd Badi Maa left d room.

“I miss u Di” Geet said while kissing Sameera’s picture nd left d Room before giving it one last glance.

 

**************************************************

 

Dere in d downstairs he was waiting in d Mandap for her to arrive. Not because dis was d moment dat he has waited for so long but he just wanted to finish off wid all dese ceremonies so dat he dnt have to pretend anymore dat he’ happy wid dis marriage but d fact is dat he’s not at all happy. He was just doing it for d sake of d person whom he Loved d Most, her deceased wife Sameera.

 

He was well known as Maan Singh Khurana who had never made compromises in his lyf nd nw here he’s going to make d biggest compromise of his lyf. Going to marry to d girl who is his Wife’s Younger sister nd for whom he feel nothing other den respect dat he should have in dere relationship.

 

He knows dat just like other girls she must have many expectations from dis Marriage, from him but to her luck he can’t fulfill anyone of dem because his heart, his soul, his lyf belonged to only person for whose happiness he’s going to do compromise for the first tym in his lyf. But isn’t she knows dat before ofcourse she knows it but same like him she’s also doing it for d person whom she loves d most. Ironically, dey both are sailing on d same boat but only God knows dat whether dere Destinations are same or not.

 

Just den he saw her descending d stairs cuming towards him. She’s indeed looking the most beautiful Bride in d World but for him she is just a responsibility nd dis Relationship is just a compromise.

 

As soon as she arrived d Wedding ceremonies have been started. Both Maan nd Geet were taking part in it quietly without giving a glance to each other. wen d tym of Kanyadaan came Geet’s Bade Papa keeps her hand in Maan’s hand nd he just holds it reluctantly nd dis is wen Geet turned to look at him who was looking straight.

 

He’s d Dream of every girl nd any girl would be blessed to have a person like him in her lyf but unfortunately she’s not dat girl as she can never gain that place in his heart dat her Di was having. She sighed as dis thought came into her mind but did she expected anything of dis sort wen she agreed to dis proposal.

 

Finally d rituals came to an end nd Maan ties d Mangalsutra around her neck nd puts Sindoor on her forehead marking her as his wife but just for d outer world. In dere dey both knows dat dis relation is just for name sake.

 

As d Marriage rituals ended, the Bidaai session has started nd Geet cried a lot hugging her Badi Maa who just blessed her for her Lovely Future silently praying to God dat her daughter gets all d Love nd Happiness from dis Marriage dat she deserves from dis Marriage.

 

Bade Papa Makes Geet sit in Maan’s car accompanied by his Sister Annie nd Younger Brother Vicky nd finally she goes with d person with whom she’s “Destinied To Be”. Her Bade Papa nd Badi Maa watched her going until she gets disappeared from their sight

 

*****************************************************

 

Geet gets a warm welcome in KM as d Badi Bahu of Khurana’s. Geet was not unknown to dis place. She has came here many tymes before but dat was being d Sister of Sameera nd today she’s getting welcomed as a daughter-in-law of Khurana’s. She wonders dat if she’ll be ever able to fulfill d duties nd responsibilities dat was of her sister.

 

 

Maan was not at all interested in dis after Marriage rituals but due to insisted by his Dadimaa he half-heartedly takes part in it nd as soon as it finishes he moves straight to his study making excuse of some important work but Geet knows dat it was just a way of distancing himself from her.

 

After sometym Annie nd her friends takes Geet to Maan’s room which was fully decorated wid flowers. Geet gasped seeing d Room nd Annie teased her thinking dat she’s feeling shy but least she knows dat it was something else. Dey make her sit on d Bed nd let her over dere waiting for Maan.

 

Geet just sat dere thinking hw her lyf changed in just a matter of few days. Till yesterday she was happily dreaming of her Prince charming nd today she got married to d person who is not less den a prince charming but he does not belong to her. The Person who was her beloved Jiju till yesterday is nw her husband. God knows wat expectations he must be having from her nd will she ever be able to meet up to his expectations. Dere relationship has changed all of a sudden nd it’s not easy to accept dat change all of a sudden but she’ll try her best to keep dis Marriage working even if it is a compromised one.

 

She sighed nd looked around d Room only to find Maan nd Sameera’s pics all over the Room confessing d unbreakable Bond between dem. She wonders whether she’ll be ever able to get that place in his heart. But Wait! Wat is she thinking? She’s expecting sumthing unexpected. She knows very well dat she’ll never get her Di’s place neither in his heart nor in his lyf so it’s better if she dnt expect anything from him. May be dis is wat her Destiny has written for her. She rests her head at d bedpost lost in her thoughts nd didn’t realized wen she dozed off waiting for him.

 

****************************************************

 

Maan came to his Room late at night knowing dat she must have slept by now. he dnt want to face her due to sudden change in dere Relationship derefore he kept himself busy in d study for late nd wen he thought dat she must have slept by now he decided to came to his room. He opens d door of his Room hoping dat he dnt have to face her but to his Surprise he did found her sleeping but it was just due to waiting for him.

 

“Is she really waiting for me? But she knows dat I can’t fulfill any of her expectations” he thought nd goes towards d Cupboard to take out blanket nd pillow.

 

Geet sleep gets disturbed wen she heard sum sound nd wen she opens her eyes she saw Maan taking out blanket nd Pillow from d cupboard. She instantly gets up from d bed wen she saw him wondering where he’s going. Maan takes out his blanket nd pillow nd turned only to find Geet staring at him confusingly

 

“Is he going sumwhere? But where nd was it because of me? No I can’t let him sacrifice anymore due to dis relationship. But hw should I stop him? But I have to stop him. But wat should I call him; Jiju no he’s not my Jiju anymore den Maan but will it look good. Hey Babaji! Ab main kya karoon?” she thought while still staring at him.

 

“Do u want to say sumthing” Maan’s asked seeing her staring at him confusingly. His voice broke her trance nd she instantly spoke

 

“Aap kahin ja rahe hai?” she asked innocently to him thinking dat dis is d best way to address him. Maan felt awkward due to sudden change in her addressing. She always use to address him “Jiju” or “Di Ka Ghulam” or “Angry Young Man” nd nw she is not addressing him from any of dese but as “Aap”. He instantly shrugged off his thoughts nd looked at her

 

Maan: ya, I was going to guest room to sleep.

Geet: but y r u going over dere? I mean its Ur Room only u can sleep over here too.

Maan: Dekho Geet, we both know dis very well dat dis Marriage is just a compromise dat we had done just for Sameera’s sake (he closed his eyes for a while thinking of Sameera) for d outer world we may present ourselves as a happily Married Couple but we both know wat d reality is so I dnt want any of us to feel awkward. Derefore its better if I sleep in d guest room nd den I’ll return to my Room early in d morning.

 

He said it all in a breath whatever came in his mind nd den looks at her only to find her looking at him in a amused way.

 

Geet: But Wat if anyone comes to know dat u were sleeping at Guest Room, dey wont feel happy if dey cum to know about it by any chance. (She said nd stopped for a while to see his reaction) I guess u must sleep over here only.

Maan: But Geet�..

Geet: dnt worry I’ll sleep at d Sofa nd u can sleep on d bed

 

She said nd goes towards d Bed to take her pillow nd blanket. Before Maan could register anything he saw her moving towards couch

 

“Geet, Ek min.” he instantly said nd Geet stop right in her tracks nd turned to look at him.

 

“U don’t have to sleep on d couch. U can sleep on bed nd I’ll sleep over dere” he said hesitantly

“No, its ok. I’ll be comfortable on d couch. U dnt have to sacrifice Ur cozy bed for me” she said wid a smile nd Maan don’t know wat should he say to her further.

 

“Geet, I knw u must be having many expectations from me nd dis marriage but I just wanted to say dat I��..” he can’t say further as Geet intervenes

 

“U don’t have to say or explain anything to me. I haven’t expected anything from u or dis Marriage. I’ll never take Sameera Di’s place in Ur heart or Ur lyf because I knw dat I can’t. U dnt have to worry from my side” she said maintaining a calm face without a tinge of pain

 

Geet: We both will stay in d same room under same roof but as two strangers just like d two persons stay in one compartment of train.

 

Maan dnt know wat should he say to her now. he had always known her as a bubbly nd lively girl who just remains in d dreams of her Prince Charming oblivious of anything else in d world nd here she’s talking so maturely like she understands wat was dere in his heart. He felt guilty as he can’t give dat right to her by any chance which was hers nd she has to live her whole lyf wid d burden of dis Relationship.

 

Geet: Aap kafi thak gaye honge. U go nd sleep nd I’ll also change nd sleep. Gud night.

 

She said nd moves towards d washroom taking her night suit to change leaving Maan behind lost in his own thoughts.

After a while wen Geet came back from Washroom she saw dat Maan has already changed in his vest nd Tracks nd was off to bed facing his back to her. She noticed dat he didn’t covered himself wid Blanket nd was sleeping without it.

 

“May be he’s too tired nd has slept without covering himself. Wat if he catches cold?” She thought getting worried thinking dat he has slept but least she knows dat he was not sleeping at all. Hw can anyone sleep so peacefully after having such a change in his lyf.

 

“Can I cover him? But wat if he dnt like it? I mean if he thinks dat m caring for him Inspite of him telling dat we dnt have to pretend dis relationship in dis room. But he’s sleeping so basically he wont be able to know anything” she thought nd after fighting a lot wid her inner self she decided to move ahead.

 

Maan felt her cuming near him nd got confused as y is she cuming over here

 

“Does she need anything? May be, Afterall dis place is new to her. I just lay without thinking dat might be she needs sumthing. Wat if she need sumthing nd feeling awkward to ask me? I think I should ask her” he thought nd was about to turn to her side wen he felt sumthing over him. He instantly closed his eyes so dat she won’t be able to knw dat he’s awake nd felt dat she’s covering him from blanket

 

He held his breath as her fingers brushed slightly on his bare shoulders while putting blanket on him. At d same tym Geet too felt a strange sensation in her veins as her skin came in contact of his bare skin but she immediately shrug off dat thought

 

“Good Night” she whispered ever so softly not wanting him to listen nd goes towards couch.

 

Maan slightly raised his head wen he felt her nd saw her setting her bed on d couch nd den laying on it.

 

“Good night” he whispered nd den went to sleep.

 

************************************************

 

It was past midnight wen Maan turned to other side nd unknowingly he placed his arm on d object beside him or rather say a person. Unknowingly he tightens his grip around it but soon reality struck him nd he jerked his eyes open only to find Geet sleeping beside him. He instantly gets up in a sitting position nd frowned thinking wat is she doing here.

 

Geet too get ups instantly due to sudden movement as she was not in deep sleep nd wen Maan placed his Arm on her she was awake den only but she didn’t moved his arm because she thought dat he was in deep sleep but wen she felt him getting up so she too instantly gets up.

 

“wo� Sorry I was not knowing dat u r sleeping beside me.” Maan said while looking other side

 

“No Pls u dnt say Sorry. It was not ur mistake” said Geet while looking down nd Maan looked at her questioningly.

 

Geet: wo Actually I was sleeping at couch only but suddenly I started feeling cold over dere. I covered myself wid d blanket tightly but it didn’t helped. I increased d temp. also to reduce coldness But den I saw dat u were getting uncomfortable in sleep so I again slow down d Temp nd thought of sleeping at d other side of bed. Believe me I was sleeping at far corner only but don’t know hw landed up in sleeping close to u.

 

She said last sentence slowly almost telling to herself but Maan understand her dilemma. He cursed himself for being careless wen he knows dat she’s sensitive towards Cold. Sameera once told him about dis nd it just slipped off from his mind.

 

“And Sameera expected dat I’ll take care of her for whole of my lyf” He thought feeling guilty nd looked at her

 

Maan: it’s ok. It’s not Ur fault. I forgot dat u r sensitive towards cold. U sleep on d bed only as d affect of AC is low over here nd I’ll sleep on d couch.

Geet: But�..

Maan: Geet, no more arguments nw. u’ll sleep on d couch only.

 

By saying dis he gets up from d Bed nd moves towards d Couch. Before Geet can stop him she saw him adjusting d AC temp nd den lying down at couch. She sighed nd once again looked at him before going to sleep.

 

*****************************************************

 

It’s been 1/2 an hour since Geet is shifted on Bed but still she was unable to sleep. She was continuously tossing nd turning on bed but Sleep was far away from her eyes. Finally she gets up nd looked at Maan nd realizes dat he’s sleeping. She sighed nd rests her head at d bed post. She still couldn’t believe dat her lyf has changed all of a sudden. It seems like it was just yesterday wen Sameera has introduced Maan to all of dem nd told everyone dat dey both r in Love nd today she is at d place where her sis is supposed to be.

 

She still remembers d day wen Sameera has brought Maan home for d very first tym.

 

**********~~~~~~~~~~~~Flashback~~~~~~~~~~~~~**********

 

 

Sameera has not told anything to Geet yet as she wants to give her a surprise. Wen Geet came back from college she saw someone sitting on d couch talking to her Bade papa facing his back to her. She frowned thinking who it can be.

 

 

“Badi Maa ne to nahi bataya tha dat Today any guest r arriving, den who it is?” she thought standing near d Door wen her Bade Papa saw her lost in her own thoughts.

 

“Arey Geet tum aa gayi. I was waiting for u only” her Bade Papa said bringing her out from her thoughts. She smiled brightly nd quickly runs towards her Bade Papa nd gives him a tight hug.

 

Bade Papa: So hw was my Bacha’s day today?

 

“Very Good, no Excellent. U knw wat happen today? Yash has played prank on Prof Mishra. He makes a prank call nd said dat he’s going to expose him in front of his wife for having an illicit affair wid his colleague nd Mishra Sir’s face was worth watching. It seems like someone has caught him Red handed. U knw hw much hard it was for us to control our laugh. Nd after dat���” nd she keeps on blabbering forgetting dat dere’s someone else is also present in d room who was looking at her like she was an alien.

 

“Hw can anyone talk so much dat too without taking a breath” he thought shaking his head in disbelief.

 

Just den Geet’s Badi Maa came in d living room along wid Sameera nd saw Geet sitting beside her Bade Papa hugging him sideways nd was busy as usual in telling her whole day’s activities forgetting dat dere’s a world around her

 

“Dis Girl nd her childhood habit; both can never change” Badi Maa muttered under her breath which didn’t go unheard by Sameera

 

“Geet tu to aaj gayi” Sameera thought feeling worried for Geet. But before she could do sumthing she saw her mother goes towards d couch where everyone was sitting

 

“Geet” she called her in a stern voice diverting Geet’s attention towards herself

 

“Badi Maa” she said cheerfully nd hugged her tight making her melt instantly but she maintained her straight composure

 

Badi Maa: Geet, wen will u learn dat u r no more a kid to behave like dis.

 

“Sorry Badi Maa” she said making a baby face trying to melt her angry Badi Maa but guess dis tym it’s not working

 

Badi Maa: Geet, stop dis old trick of urs. It won’t work dis tym

Geet: But Badi Maa�.

 

“Acha u both can do ur Pacify session later also, but first let Geet introduce to d special guest who’s here” her Bade Papa intervened in between stopping d scolding nd pacify session between mother nd Daughter. Geet turned to look at him nd he winks at her slowly making sure his wife don’t notice it.

 

Bade Papa: Geet cum here beta. Let me introduce to d special guest dis evening.

 

Geet instantly goes towards him nd sat beside him hugging him sideways.

 

Bade Papa: Maan, Dis my Geet; Sameera’s younger sister nd Geet beta dis Maan; Sameera’s��

 

“Bade Papa u haven’t told me dat we had hired new security system for Di.” She said in between without letting him complete his sentence. Maan has almost spilled out d coffee dat he was having wen he listened to wat Geet has said while Sameera slapped her forehead in disbelief.

 

Bade Papa: Geet beta��.

Geet (intervenes): Ek Min. Bade Papa. Let me handle dis. (den to Maan) Listen Mr. Maan my Di is an officer in Indian air force so I need best security system to guard her. aap to jante hi honge dat hw much danger is dere in an Air Force Officer’s lyf so I dnt want any kind of loopholes in ur system like d one the previous one had. Got it!

 

“Geet ye tu kya bol rahi hai” Sameera said while holding her arm to stop her saying further but who can stop Geet especially den wen it comes to her family

 

“Di, I said Na let me handle dis. so Mr. Maan I think u understand well wat I wanted to say. Nd ya one more thing I don’t want any bodyguard for me. U knw I m very much capable of guarding myself but ya I want best Bodyguards for my Di as her safety matters to me most. Waise, u r also not bad. Y don’t u become my Di’s bodyguard. I mean it would be Gud if u urself look into dis matter.” She said innocently while examining Maan from top to Bottom.

 

Maan: But I�.

 

“Don’t worry we’ll pay u suitable amount of salary which would be suitable acc to urcapability” she said while trying to clear all his doubts

 

Maan was just looking at her dumbfounded not knowing wat should he say to dis girl. Here he has came introduce himself as Sameera’s love interest nd she’s giving him d job of Sameera’s Bodyguard. He chuckled inwardly at her thoughts.

 

“No wonder Sameera always remain worried for her. She’s indeed an antique piece” he thought while trying his best to not to laugh.

 

 

“Geet enough. Do u have any idea about wat u r talking” Her Badi Maa said in a stern voice before she makes any more blunders.

 

Geet: ya Badi Maa. Nd don’t worry dis tym nothing will go wrong. Right Bade Papa.

Bade Papa: Geet beta atleast listen to me first once; hhmmm.

 

She nodded slowly nd looked at her Bade Papa to continue

 

“Beta I was saying sat he’s Maan; Sameera’s Love interest wid whom she wanted to marry nd not her bodyguard ok” he said while laughing slightly on d last word.

 

It took Geet few mins to register wat she had just listened. Did she heard it correct? He was Sameera’s Love interest? But hw cum She has not told anything to her yet? She looked at Sameera who was looking down; blushing nd worried at d same tym. Blushing due to introduce Maan as her Love interest nd worried due to Geet reaction nw as she knows dat Geet will feel hurt becoz she haven’t shared dis thing wid her.

 

“Di’s Love interest; Di wanted to marry him. Dat means Di Loves him” she said while still not believing d fact.

 

Badi Maa: Ya beta. Sameera nd Maan wants to marry each other so she thought of introducing him to all of us. Nd for ur Information Maan doesn’t have any security agency infact he’s a big name in d business world. Isiliye kehti hoon ki films chod ke News dekha kar.

 

But Geet was not registering any word of her. Her mind was just on d thought dat her Di was in Love nd she didn’t find it important to share dis wid her. She looks at Maan who was looking at her smiling trying to know her reaction. She can’t take dis anymore. She instantly gets up from d couch making everyone tensed.

 

“Itni badi baat nd none of u find it important to tell me” she said rather in a hurted voice making Sameera feeling guilty.

 

“Geet it’s not like dat beta. We too come to know about it in d morning only” her Badi Maa said in order to calm her

 

“Morning Badi Maa; nd its evening nw still none of u told me about Di’s alliance yet. Nw dnt tell dat u guys didn’t get tym to tell me. Fact is dat u all didn’t find me important enough to let me knw” she said while trying her best to hold back her tears

 

Bade Papa: Geet, its nothing like dat Beta. U r important to us

Geet: Let it be Bade Papa, if it was like dat den u all must have told me about all dis. but wat should I say to u all wen my Di doesn’t find it necessary enough to tell me anything.

 

She said nd looked at Sameera wid teary eyes nd storms towards her room leaving everyone behind dumfounded. Maan was mute spectator of all dis. he wanted to stop Geet wen she was going but he dnt want to interfere in dere family matter.

 

Sameera gives Maan I-Told-U-Before look to which he assured her by blinking his eyes.

 

******~~~~~~~Back to Present~~~~~~~~******

 

Maan opened his eyes instantly as he remembered his first meeting wid Geet. Unknowingly a smile crept on his face remembering her innocence. He still can’t believe dat Geet had actually called him a bodyguard. Maan Singh Khurana, a big name in business World in front of whom people fear to even stand; he has been offered d job of bodyguard. Only Geet can do dis wonder. He had always listened stories of her from Sameera but dat day he himself had witnessed dat day d extent of her innocence.

 

He turned to loom towards her nd found her in a sitting position resting her head on d bed post wid her eyes closed. He thought dat may be she’s unable to sleep due to change in place but den he noticed a slight smile on her face nd realizes dat may be she too remembering dat moment.

 

He turned his head back nd closed his eyes again trying to sleep. But sleep was far away from his eyes. He still can’t forget d day wen he met Geet for d very first tym. At dat tym he haven’t thought even in his wildest dream dat one day circumstances would force him to marry her. Dere’s a lot of transformation in Geet since dat day. D girl who never think twice before speaking anything had now taken such a big decision of her lyf without thinking about herself once. But wen did she think of anything else wen sumthing is concerned wid Sameera. Dat day also he was hell mad at her but sumwhere in her heart she was not at all angry on Sameera. It was just dat she felt hurted wen Sameera hides such a big thing from her.

 

He still remembers hw much tym it took dem to pacify her.

 

**********~~~~~~~~~~~~Flashback~~~~~~~~~~~~~**********

 

Geet was sitting on her bed sulking. She never felt dis much hurted before like she felt today. She always felt herself as a part of dis family. She had never seen her parents nd she didn’t even missed dem also as for her, her family is her Bade Papa, her Badi Maa nd her Sameera Di for whom she can even die also without thinking twice. Nd Sameera she was her lyf nd dey both shared each nd everything wid each other since childhood nd today she has taken such a big decision of her lyf nd haven’t found it necessary to tell her even once.

 

A lone tear escaped from her eyes realizing dat her own sister has hide dis fact from her. Sameera slowly entered in her room only to find her crying silently. She felt bad seeing her baby sister crying like dis but she knows dat she wont be angry wid her for long. She goes nd sits near Geet. Geet saw her sitting beside her nd she quickly turned her face to other side not wanting to look at her.

 

Sameera: Geet, Sweetie listen to me

 

But she didn’t turned nd keeps on looking other way

 

Sameera: I m sorry sweetheart.. See m holding my ears nw

 

She said while literally holding her ears. Geet looked at her from d corner of her eyes nd she started getting melt seeing her like dat.

 

“No Geet, remember u r angry wid Di” she reminds herself in her mind

 

Sameera: Geet m so sorry mishti. Trust me I wanted to tell u but��.

 

“But u didn’t find it important. Everyone in d home knows about U nd Ur love nd it was only me who was left out. Oh! Y would u tell me. Afterall who I m? I m just Ur cousin sister who stays wid u all because her parents are no more nd she is living wid u all considering all of u as her own family. If dere’s ur Real sister on my place den u wouldn’t have hide dis fact from her”  Geet said wid tears in her eyes unknowingly hurting Sameera.

 

“Mishty, I said I am sorry. I know I hurted u by not telling u anything but pls don’t say like dis. u r more den a Sister to me. I Love you more den anything sweetie” Sameera said while chocking in tears. Geet felt bad seeing her Di in tears dat too because of her. No matter hw much angry she was on her but still she cant see her in tears. But at dat tym she don’t knw hw will she make her feel better wen she herself was feeling so low.

 

Sameera looked at Maan who was standing near d door helplessly. Maan gestures her to calm down nd he came inside d room nd gestures Sameera to move aside while he sits next to Geet. Geet looked him from d corner of her eyes but decided to ignore him

 

“Hi Geet! I m Maan” he said wid a charming smile on his face.

 

“I knw it already” Geet said while looking other side.

 

Maan: o ya! Uncle has already introduced us. Ummm Chocolate?

 

He said while extending chocolate towards her.

 

“I m not a kid dat u r pampering me like dis” Geet said in anger finally looking towards him. Maan noticed d amount of anger in her big hazel eyes but along wid dat dere was pain nd sadness too. He wonders hw can anyone’s eyes be so expressive dat it shows each nd ever emotion dat was dere in her heart

 

Maan: ya ofcourse u r not a kid but Sameera told me dat u like chocolates so I brought it specially for u. Please

 

He said while extending chocolate once again. Geet reluctantly takes it but still didn’t talked to him. Maan shakes his head nd smiles on her childishness

 

Maan: Geet, I knw u r angry nd hona bhi chahiye. If I was dere in ur place den may be I would react like dat too. But Geet, for once just once try to know d fact y Sameera didn’t told u anything wid whom she shares her smallest secret.

 

He said wid such an influence dat Geet forced to listen to him. Maan patted himself mentally on his small victory

 

Maan: Geet, I knw d warmth of d relation between u nd Sameera nd trust me as soon as she accepted my proposal den u r d first person whom Sameera wanted to tell about dis but it was me who stopped her from telling all dis.

Geet: You? But why?

Maan: Because I wanted to let u all knw about all dis wen after I talked to my family personally regarding dis. I feared dat if Uncle Nd Aunty came to know about all dis nd by chance my family didn’t approve for dis relationship den it may create tension between two families. Derefore I asked her not to tell even to u as I thought may be u can tell all dis to dem.

 

He said last sentence slowly nd Geet looked up at him angrily. Wat does he think dat she can’t keep any secret to herself, she thought. Maan easily understand wat was going in her mind, thanx to her expressive eyes

 

Maan: No I didn’t mean to offend u. it was just I was not sure of Ur reaction.

 

He said quickly before Geet starts another round of her sulking. After he sees dat Geet is getting calm he continued further

 

“Geet, Sameera was not at all ready for hiding dis fact from u but it was me who pester her so much dat she has to hide dis fact. Geet, Ur Sister loves u a lot. Jitney bhi tym wo mere saath hoti hai her most of d tym spend in talking about you only. Infact she has put on d condition also in front of me dat she’ll be agree to dis marriage only den wen u’ll approve me otherwise she wont. No matter wat elders decide but for her Ur decision is most important.” He said while smiling, expecting Geet to understand d fact. Geet looked at Sameera who was standing aside wid a sad face nd she assured her dat Maan was right. Geet felt guilty for hurting her sister so much though unknowingly but she hurted her so much. She quickly rushes towards her nd hugs her tight

 

“I m so sorry Di. I hurted u so much. God knows wat came over me nd I said dose words to u. but trust me I didn’t mean it. it was just I was angry nd said all dis” she said while sobbing in her embrace

 

“Its ok Sweetie I knw my Mishty can never hurt me intentionally. Chal nw forget everything else nd smile nw.” Sameera said while wiping away her tears.

 

Maan was standing aside looking at d loving bond between two sisters. He wonders hw will be they able to stay away from each other after marriage. Well, dats d matter dat can be considered later on first he needs to make d atmosphere little light.

 

Maan: Agar tum dono ka ye re-union khatam ho gaya ho den pls don’t forget dat I m also present in d room.

 

He said nd both d sisters came out from dere emotional trip nd looked at Maan.

 

“So Geet, nw if u think dat I m a good choice for ur sister den pls approve me for her.” Maan said rather in a pleading way making Geet nd Sameera smile widely.

 

Geet comes near nd scanned him from top to Bottom while taking rounds around him.

 

“Hhmmm Dekhne me to thik-thak ho” she said while Maan knotted his brows at her statement. Here girls drool over him nd she just find him ok-ok types. Geet quickly sensed wat was going in his mind so she quickly correct herself

 

“I mean good, u look good. Badi Maa said dat u had a big name in business world too so basically dere’s nothing in u due to which I can reject u. But I had few question of mine after which only I’ll decide dat r u right match for my or not” she said confidently as if she was an interviewer nd Maan is a candidate for job. Maan smiled inwardly seeing her confidence nd decided to do whatever she wants

 

“Sure Ma’am ask whatever u want. Maan Singh Khurana is always ready to answer any questions” he said wid a Pride which didn’t go unnoticed by Geet

 

“Attitude huh, lets see. So my first question is do u Smoke”

 

“No”

 

“Gud. Do u drink?”

 

“Sometimes, I mean wen I m in a party nd all” he said confidently

 

“U have to quit Drinking. Becoz both me nd Di hate drinkers nd smokers so if u wanted to marry Di den u have to quit Drinking” she said while raising her head high.

 

“Ok Ma’am as u say.” Maan said while amusing dat just a girl is ordering sumthing to Maan Singh Khurana who himself give orders to others.

 

“Hhmmm. Was dere any other girl in Ur lyf apart from my Di ever”

 

“Nop, never, neither dere will be in future”

 

“Gud. Nd my final question infact it’s not a question it’s a kind of commitment”

 

“Nd wats dat” Maan asked thinking as if nw wat else left

 

“U have to promise me dat u’ll always take care of my Di. U’ll always fulfill her each nd every wish nd ya will never ever yell at him. No matter whosever mistake it will be but u’ll always bend in front of my Di. U’ll never let him cry. Can u promise me dis” She said all of a sudden getting emotional

 

“I Promise u Geet, dat I’ll always take care of ur Di nd will never ever yell at her. u dnt have to worry for her until she’s wid me. Dis is my Promise. Maan Singh Khurana’s Promise.” He said d last line proudly

 

Geet: hhmmm den Mr. Maan Singh Khurana I Geet Handa approves u as a suitable match for my Di. U r d one wid whom my Di is “Destinied to be”

 

As soon as she completed her sentence, Sameera comes nd hug Geet expressing her happiness

 

Sameera: Oh Geet I Love you so much. Thank u so much sweetie. I can’t tell u hw much happy I m to see dat u approved Maan.

Geet: Anything for u Di. I knw dat he’ll always keep u happy. Right Jiju!

Maan: ofcourse Sali sahiba! I’ll always keep her happy.

 

He said nd dey formed a group hug celebrating d joy nd happiness dat had made dere place in dere lives.

 

Outside d room Sameera’s parents were witnessing d whole scene wid tears of happiness in her eyes seeing dere children so happy nd praying to god dat dis happiness remains forever in dere lives nd nothing can go wrong wid dem. but leats dey know dat d storm is yet to cum in dere lives which r going to change dere lives forever.

“Di tell me Na hw ur Love story has started” Geet said while keeping her head on Sameera’s lap while Sam was just caressing her hairs

 

Sameera: Me nd Maan has first met in Vidyut’s party. U know Vidyut right?

 

“The one who looks like Ranbir Kapoor.” Geet said excitedly while Sameera just rolled over her eyes seeing her die hard affection for Ranbir Kapoor

 

“Ya the one who looks like Ranbir Kapoor. Waise I forget to tell u, he has been asking about u a lot nw-a-days. Wats up? Is something cooking between u two” Sameera asked suspiciously

 

Geet: Oh! c’mon Di. It’s nothing like dat ok. I mean he’s gud but abhi he’s just a friend of mine, so dnt get any wrong ideas ok. Acha nw dnt change the topic nd tell me further

Sameera: ok. So I nd Maan has first met at Vidyut’s party. Vidyut introduced Maan to me as his childhood friend nd I dnt knw hw we instantly clicked nd had become good friends. Den thru Skype, Facebook nd calls we started cuming closer. He use to come to base wenever I was in duty to meet me nd didn’t realize dat wen we fall in Love. Nd finally he proposed me nd I said yes. Bas dats it!

Geet: Wow not bad ha. But Di u always use to say dat u’ll do arrange marriage den hw come u land up in being Love nd all

Sameera: Stupid, its not all planned ok. Love just happens nd it won’t ask Ur permission. U urself won’t realize wen u’ll fall in Love nd den all Ur ideologies nd logics will go in vain. Just wait until u fall in Love wid someone den u’ll realize it.

 

“Whatever! But for one thing m sure that m going to do Love Marriage only nd dat too wid d one who’ll look like Ranbir Kapoor” Geet said while getting up from her lap.

 

“Hhmmm! So it’s like dat, ok so in dat case I must talk to Vidyut right.” Sameera said wid the intention of having some fun

 

Geet: Vidyut? Wo kyun?

“Arey u only said na dat u wanted to marry someone like Ranbir Kapoor nd dis also u had admitted dat Vidyut looks like Ranbir Kapoor so in dat case both of urs match will be perfect. Wat say?” Sameera said while winking

 

“Di u r so mean” she said nd picked up a pillow from her side nd throws on her. Sameera too dis d same nd both Sisters had pillow fight.

 

*******~~~~~~~Back to Present~~~~~~*******

 

Geet opens her eyes as soon as dis memory crossed her mind. Automatically a smile crept up on her face. Those were d happiest moments of her life where everything was going fine. Dere was so much happiness around dem. After dat introduction part Maan nd Geet had really become very comfortable wid each other. Geet always use to make fun of his bad temper nd calls him “Angry Young Man” while Maan always teases her by saying “Aadhi Gharwali” nd Sameera just back of by saying dat its d matter between u both y should I interfere.

 

She looked at Maan nd found him still sleeping but least she knows dat Maan haven’t slept a wink by now. She again rests her head on d bed post nd thinks about those past moments. Everything was going fine. Maan’s family has whole-heartedly accepted Sameera ns soon she got married to him too. But dat doesn’t made nay difference between d relation of Sameera nd Geet infact nw dere binds becomes more stronger. Maan’s family too likes Geet a lot. Infact Annie nd Vicky had become her good friends so dere was no restriction for her cuming nd going in KM.

 

Everything was going in d way dey wanted to be until that dreadful day which changed everyone’s Life forever. Almost 6 months have been passed since Sameera nd Maan are married nd Sameera has to go to base all of a sudden. Though she was at 1 month leave at dat tym but due to emergency she had to go to report.

 

**********~~~~~~~~Flashback~~~~~~~~~**********

 

Geet was not having a gud feeling dat day. She felt like sumthing very worse going to happen but Sameera assured her dat everything is fine nd she’ll be back soon. Even Maan was reluctant to let her go like dis but Sameera somehow convinced him too nd den she left for base but for never to come back.

 

She still remember dat dreadful day wen dey receive call from base reporting about Sameera’s plane crash nd her accident nd told dat her cond. Is very critical. As soon as dey got the news dey all rushed towards the hospital told by them. All d way Geet was silently praying to God dat nothing happen to Sameera. But it seems God is not in mood to listen to her that day.

 

As soon as dey reached to hospital Geet saw dat Maan nd his family was already present over dere. Geet quickly runs towards Maan nd hugged him tight but he was just standing over dere lifeless nd didn’t reciprocated d hug. Just den Doctor came out nd called Dadimaa inside as Sameera wanted to say something to her.

 

Maan: Doctor, is Sameera all right?

Doctor: can’t say anything right nw Mr. Khurana. Her condition is still critical

 

Saying dis he excused himself nd Dadimaa goes inside the ICU to meet Sameera. Everyone was eagerly waiting for her to come out to know for what Sameera has called her inside. Every passing minute seems to be an eternity to dem. after sometym she comes outside. Her face clearly expressing dat dere’s something wrong. She seems to be very much worried.

 

Maan: Dadimaa, wat happen? Wat had Sameera said to u?

 

“She wanted to meet Geet ‘alone’.” She said while trying her best to hold back her tears leaving everyone confused.

 

Without asking any questions she ran inside d ICU while Dadimaa just prayed silently to god to give her d courage to bear d situation dat she’s going to face nw.

 

*********************************************

 

As soon as Geet reached inside the ICU she saw Sameera lyieng over dere surrounded by so many pipes nd wires. Her heart cried seeing her Di in dis condition but she hold back dere tears nd goes towards her. As soon as Sameera notices her she gestures her to come near her. Geet sat near Sameera nd hold her hand.

 

“Di! Hw all dis happened? U said dat everything is fine den hw come ur plane got crashed” She said while sobbing

 

Sameera: few things r not in our hands Geet, just like my Lyf. It’s slipping away from my hand.

Geet: Di Pls dnt say like dat. u had a long lyf, trust me.

Sameera: No Geet I dnt have. This pain is getting unbearable to me nw.

 

Geet didn’t said anything nd shakes her head in denial while still crying

 

“Geet, if today I’ll ask sumthing from u den will u give me dat?” She said almost in a pleading way

 

“Yes Di I’ll give u whatever you want but pls dnt go away from us” Geet said while holding her hands

 

“Geet, Pls Marry Maan after my death” Sameera finally said after taking a deep breath giving Geet the biggest shock of her lyf.

 

Geet couldn’t believe dat whether wat she was listening is correct or not. Did Sam just ask her to marry Maan? Seeing Geet perplexed expressions Sameera spoke further

 

“Geet I knw I m asking a very big thing from u. I knw that sumwhere I am getting selfish too. U had never dreamt of marrying Maan. Ur dreams are different wen it comes to marriage nd I m asking u to sacrifice all dat but pls Agree to it Geet. Pls”

 

Geet: No Di, dis is not right. He loves only you. I can’t marry him.

 

Sameera: I knw Geet hw much he Loves me nd I also know dat u dnt Love me less den him nd dis also I knw dat after my death u both will be broken completely. Tu to apne aap ko sambhal legi but Maan will never be able to overcome from dis. he’ll be shattered. Nd dis I can’t bear. Geet only u can fill dat void in his lyf that’ll be created after me. Only u can take him out from dis situation. I had seen hw much u both are comfortable wid each other nd I m sure dat u both will be each other’s support. Pls Geet dnt refuse. u both r d only ones whom I Love d most in dis world nd My soul wont be in peace if I’ll see anyone of u in pain after my death. Fill his lyf nd heart wid so much Love dat he never feel my absence in his lyf nd I knw dat u can do it.

Geet: Di I�.

 

“Pls Geet Pls Promise me dat u’ll never leave Maan alone. Promise me dat u’ll always be wid him as his shadow. Promise me Geet dat u’ll fill dat void in his lyf dat will create after me. Pls Promise me Geet. Pls fulfill my last wish” Sameera said while breathing heavily. Geet can’t see her sister in dis state so without any second thought she holds her hand nd accepted her desire

 

“I Promise u di dat I’ll fulfill Ur last wish. I’ll marry him nd will never leave him alone. I promise” Geet said wid tears in her eyes.

 

Just den Sameera’s eyes fell on Maan who was standing behind at d corner. His facial expression clearly says dat he had listened to their conversation. He nodded in denial gesturing “Don’t Do dis” to reply of which she gestured him to cum to her.

 

As soon as he reaches to her Sameera takes his hand in hers nd keeps it on Geet’s hand. Her heart finally got peace knowing dat the two persons whom she loved d most will never be alone now without her. A smile of contentment crept on her face as she finally closes her eyes to drift into a peaceful death

 

*****************************************************

 

Badi Maa: No Arnav, I can’t agree to it

Bade Papa: Madhu try to understand it was our daughter’s last wish

Madhu: Geet is my daughter too Arnav. I may not be her real mother but I haven’t made any difference between her nd Sam. I knw I m strict wid her at tymes but dat doesn’t mean dat I dnt Love her. No, I’ll not let Geet bear dis Lifetime punishment

Arnav: and you think Geet will agree to it. She had promised Sameera nd nw no one can make her back out from dat promise.

Madhu: I dnt know about all dat but I’ll not let her do dis. Arnav, Geet is my daughter. She had seen so many dreams for her marriage nd I wont let her ruin dat

 

“I had made my decision Badi Maa” Geet said while standing on d door making Arnav nd Madhu to look at her

 

“I won’t back out from my promise. It was Sameera Di’s Last wish nd I’ll fulfill it” she said wid determination in her voice

 

Madhu: Geet, ye tu kya bol rahi hai? No I wont let u do dis.

Geet: Pls Badi Maa for Sameera Di. Pls agree to it

Madhu: but Ur happiness

Geet: m happy Badi Maa nd trust me I can never be dis much happy. U call KM nd tell dem dat I m ready for dis marriage.

 

She said nd goes out from dere to Sameera’s room nd sat on d floor wid her photo nd drifted to sleep.

 

************************************************************

 

1 month later Geet got married to Maan. she knows dat she had sacrificed her every dream, her every expectations for dis marriage but still she was happy as for d first tym Sameera had asked sumthing from her nd she was able to give her dat. No matter wat her dreams was all dat matter is dat she’s doing dis for dat girl who had welcomed her with open arms wen she has stepped into dis house holding d finger of her Bade Papa’s hand. Who had never let her feel alone wen god has taken away her parents from her to leave at d mercy of dis cruel world.

 

May be she’ll get no happiness from dis marriage but she’ll try her best to give Maan all d happiness of dis world as she promised Sameera.

 

*******~~~~~~~Back to Present~~~~~~*******

 

The night of memories had passed as d morning rays hit d sky. Geet didn’t realize wen she drifted off to sleep thinking about her past memories. When Maan got up he found dat Geet is still in sitting position nd in deep slumber. Her head is rolling from one side to another. Maan notices her uncomfortableness so he goes near her

 

He was about to wake her up but he stops his hand in d mid thinking dat she must be tired. But he can’t see her uncomfortable too. He was not sure whether wat he was going to do nw he had to do dat or not but he cant see her like dat too. So after thinking a lot he bend down nd pulls her down wards making sure dat her sleep don’t get disturbed. He cradled her head in his other hand to make sure dat she didn’t get sprain due to sudden pull. After laying down her comfortably he tucked her up wid a blanket.

 

He turned to leave wen he felt a sudden jerk on his hand. He turns towards her nd see dat she was sleeping peacefully by keeping his hand as a pillow. He smiles seeing her like dat nd slowly bent down on his knees on d floor nd watched her for sometym. He noticed d hair strands coming on her face disturbing her sleep. Maan very gently removes dat from her face nd tucked dem behind her ear. He watched her innocent face for some more tym nd den gently removes his hand beneath her nd goes to gym for his regular exercise.

 

*********************************************************

 

After a while Geet too woke up. her head was still heavy due to lack of sleep. She somehow managed to open her eyes nd looked around her surroundings nd den it struck her dat she’s not at her home. She’s at KM nw nd have to spend whole of her lyf here only.

 

Den she noticed her posture nd realized dat she haven’t slept like dat nd she was sure of it. den hw come she’s sleeping so comfortably nw nd den she realizes dat Maan had made her sleep like dat. she smiled a bit seeing his care nd den moves towards washroom as it was her first day at KM nd she dnt want to be late.

 

**************************************************

 

Wen Maan came into the room he found it all empty nd den he heard d sound of shower nd guessed dat she was taking bath so he decided to go thru some files as he had missed lots of work due to dis Marriage nd all.

 

While going thru files he keeps d file aside nd attends d call. He talked for a while nd after sometym he cuts d call. While he was returning back to his files he bumped into Geet who was just coming out from d shower.

 

Geet gets disbalanced due to sudden collision but before she could touch d ground she felt a pair of strong arms around her waist preventing her from falling. She turns her head to look at d person only to find being saved by Maan. dere was an eye lock session between dem for a while wen Maan suddenly realizes dere position nd slowly raises her up on her feet.

 

Maan: tum theek to ho na?

Geet: ya. Sorry I didn’t saw u.

Maan: it’s ok. It happens. BTW tum itni jaldi kaise uth gayi. I mean u had slept late at nite

 

“Wo its my first day so�” den it struck her “but hw do u knw dat I slept late at nite?”

 

“Wo� Actually” Maan fumbled wid his words not sure wat to say

 

Geet: its ok I understand. Afterall we both r sailing on d same boat. u can understand ur Pain wid me

 

Geet said while smiling weakly making Maan once again surprised wid her maturity. He still can’t believe dat she’s d same girl who always comes to conclusion without understanding anything nd nw talking so maturely. She’s indeed an antique piece

 

“App kuch soch rahe ho” Geet’s voice brings him back from his reverie.

 

Maan: ha� nothing� wo I think I should go nd take shower.

 

He said to which Geet simply nodded. He was about to go inside washroom wen Geet calls him

 

“Ji suniye” Maan frowns a bit at her sudden addressing nd den turned to look at her

 

“Wo I wanted to ask wat will u take in breakfast” she asked innocently while fidgeting wid her duppatta. Maan looks at her for a while nd den spoke

 

Maan: Geet y u r getting worried for dat. Nakul hai na he’ll handle everything

Geet: nahi its ok u tell me I’ll prepare it

Maan: Geet y u r hell bent in preparing breakfast for me

Geet: wo� I saw in movies wives use to do like dis so I thought��

 

Maan chuckled a bit seeing her filmy fever. He couldn’t help himself from not smiling on her innocence. Dis girl indeed had many colors in her. Everytym he sees different sides of her

 

“Geet, U dnt have to do anything like dat. tum waise hi raho jaise tum pehle thi. U dnt have to change urself for anything ok. I dnt want u to lose Ur innocence” He said nd moves inside d washroom before she could say further

 

Geet just stood dere quietly watching his retreating figure nd den smiled seeing his care nd concern for her. he may not fall in Love wid her ever but for one thing she was sure dat he’ll take care of her for d rest of his lyf.

Though Maan has asked her not to bother for anything but Geet still can’t stop herself from not doing anything for him. But she don’t know wat should she do for him.

 

“Inho ne to keh diya dat I dnt have to bother for anything but it’s my duty as a wife to take care of his daily needs. Movies me bhi to yahi hota hai. But wat should I do for him. Babaji Pls. aap hi kuch help karo” she said while looking upwards. Suddenly an idea struck in her mind. [he had said dat i dnt have to bother for all dis but its my duty as a wife to take care of his daily needs. dats the way dey show in d movie. But wat should i do for him. Babaji pls help me]

 

She goes towards Maan’s cupboard nd opens it. She started looking through his clothes though not sure hw would Maan react to this act of her. After searching for whole 15 mins. She finally takes out a blue shirt. She dnt knw y but she felt dat dis color will look gud on him. She smiled at d thought nd den takes out his waist coat nd trousers. She searches for d tie dat would compliment wid his suit nd den places it all on d bed nicely. She looked for his wallet; handkerchief nd watch from d drawer nd places it near his clothes.

 

After placing everything she took a deep breath nd gave a scrutinize gaze to everything making sure dat she haven’t forget everything. She had seen her Badi Maa often doing dis for her Bade Papa nd wen she has asked d reason behind dis den her Badi Maa told her dat its d duty of every wife to take care of daily needs of her husband nd moreover like dis Love between the two increases too. Geet sighed at the thought ‘Love’. Dis was something dat can never happen between dem nd the irony is dat she knows dis fact before committing for dis marriage but for one thing she’ll make sure dat she’ll never back out from the duties dat she had to perform as a wife.

 

She knows dis is not wat she dreamt of but den its not necessary dat Life always gives us wat we dreamt of so its better to accept the events dat happen in ur lyf who knows dat something really good has been stored in it. She smiled slyly at her own thought nd den goes out from d room to giving a last look to his things.

 

After a while Maan came out from shower nd moves straight away towards his cupboard to take out his clothes wen his gaze fells on bed where his clothes nd other belongings are placed nicely. He frowned nd den realizes who could have done dat. none other den Geet. no matter hw many tymes he tells her for not bothering for such things but wen she is adamants to do something den no one can stop her so its better if he left the thing the way it is.

 

He looked at the clothes nd smiled seeing her choice of clothes. Its not that he don’t wear Blue color but only sometimes but he don’t have heart to reject her choice nd try any other shirt. Already a big injustice has been done wid her by binding her in dis Loveless Marriage, according to him. Now least he can do is to let her do those things which can make her happy. He looked at clothes once again nd smiled remembering Sameera. Sameera too use to arrange his clothes like dis only. No wonder Geet is replica of Sameera to an extent yet he can’t give her dat place to her which he had for Sameera nd dis fact was making him feel more guilty.

 

But at the end of the day he can’t do anything in front of dere fate. If fate has bind dem together den d same fate will help dem to accept this reality for the lyftym. And as for now all he can do is to try to reduce dis awkwardness between dem. he took a deep breath nd started getting ready for his office.

 

********************************************************

 

Here downstairs Geet went straight away to the kitchen to prepare breakfast for everyone. She knows dat Maan had asked her from not doing all dis yet she cant stop herself from doing something for him nd his family which is nw hers too. Thinking dis she entered in the kitchen only to be greeted by Nakul who was preparing for everyone’s breakfast.

 

“Good morning Nakul.” She greeted him wid a smile on her face nd den takes a utensil nd started pouring water in it

 

“Wat r u doing Ma’am” Nakul Asked wen he saw Geet boiling water on gas.

 

Geet: I m making Coffee for him

 

“Him? For whom?” Nakul asked confused not able to understand which “him” she was referring to

 

“For him Nakul” Geet tried to make him understand dat she was making coffee for Maan without taking his name but Nakul was not able to understand

 

“R u making Coffee for Vicky baba?” he asked in order to clear his doubt

 

“Nw hw do I make him understand” she thought nd den turned to Nakul “Nakul I m making coffee for him” she tried once again to make him understand but Nakul got even more confused nw

 

“Nakul she’s making coffee for Maan” Dadimaa said while entering in kitchen along wid Annie nd Nayantara, wife of Maan’s younger brother Dev

 

“Good Morning Dadimaa” Geet said while touching her feet taking blessings from her.

 

“Good Morning Beta. God Bless you. U got up so early today?” Dadimaa Asked while patting her head

 

Geet: Wo I wanted to make breakfast for everyone nd coffee for him

Dadimaa: hhmmm so u r making coffee for Maan. But beta he likes�..

 

“Black Coffee wid one cube of sugar” Geet intervened in between surprising Savitri Devi

 

“Arey Waah aap ko to pehle se pata hai Maan ki choice” Savitri Devi said wid a smile [wow dats gud! u already knew Maan’s choice]

 

“Ya obviously Afterall Geet is Ghar me koi nayi thodi na hai dat she have any problem in knowing Maan Veerji’s choice. Initially she use to come as Sameera’s sister nd now she’s here as Maan Veerji’s wife in place of Sameera” Nayantara said bitterly before Geet could answer making her teary. [ya obviously afterall Geet is not new to this home dat she have any problem in knowing Maan Veerji’s choice. Initially she use to come as Sameera’s sister nd now she’s here as Maan Veerji’s wife in place of Sameera”]

 

Nayantara always had unknown hatredness towards Geet. She never likes Geet or Sameera’s presence in KM. yet she behaved quiet nice wid Sameera as she usually goes to base for her duties nd hardly spends tym wid dem but Geet always use to come at KM even at Sameera’s absence nd Nayantara hate d Love Whole Family showers on Geet including her husband Dev. She always envied Geet nd nw wen Geet is here as Badi Bahu of Khurana’s den she just cant digest dis fact.

 

“Nayantara” Savitri Devi said in a stern voice to make her shut her mouth.

 

“Dnt forget dat Geet is now Badi Bahu of dis house nd u should address her as Bhabhi now nd not as Geet” she said giving Nayantara a piece of mind while Nayantara just fumed in anger nd storms out in anger nd Savitri Devi just sighed at the behaviour of her younger Daughter-in-Law.

 

“Geet dnt feel bad for NT’s words. She just speaks before thinking anything” Savitri Devi said while trying to comfort Geet.

 

“Its ok Dadimaa I didn’t feel bad” Geet replied wid a smile on her face

 

“You are really nice beta. Acha if you want any help regarding d everyone’s choice of breakfast then ask to Nakul. He’ll help u.” she said wid a smile to which Geet just nodded nd Savitri Devi left leaving Annie nd Geet alone.

 

Geet started preparing coffee for Maan but her mind just wanders on NT’s word nd she felt teary remembering Sameera. It was true dat she was not new to KM yet NT’s words hurt her a lot. She doesn’t want anyone to feel dat she’s here to take Sameera’s place because she knows dat she can’t. Annie watched d change of expressions on her face nd instantly understands the turmoil goes inside her heart.

 

“Oho Geet! Tum ab bhi NT Bhabhi ki baat ko leke upset ho. Dadimaa ne kaha na dat she just speaks before thinking. Itna mat socho” Annie said while trying to cheer her up. [oho Geet u r still upset due to NT Bhabhi. Dadimaa had said na dat she just speaks before thinking. dnt think too much]

 

“No Annie its not like dat. I m not at all upset” Geet said wid a smile trying to hide her tears

 

“C’mon Geet dnt hide from me atleast. We were gud friends before ur marriage wid Maan Bhai (she paused for a while nd den continued) Geet I knw dat dere’s a sudden change in every relationship dat u had wid all of us especially of urs nd Bhai’s but just leave everything on tym nd everything will be fine. Trust me. You just be like wat you were before” She said while holding Geet’s hand in hers

 

“OMG Annie since wen u had started talking so mature” Geet asked trying to light up d atmosphere

 

“Wo Shahrukh ki movie me ye dialogue suna tha. Yaha fit ho raha tha to bol diya” she said nd winked at her nd dey both started laughing. After a while Annie suppressed her laugh nd continued [wo i heard dis dialogue in Shahrukh’s movie. it was suiting d situation so i said dat]

 

“ok jokes apart but make one thing clear in ur mind dat m not going to call u Bhabhi nd all ha becoz u were my friend nd will always be.” Annie said while pouting

 

Geet: Dnt worry u dnt have to call me Bhabhi. I am much more comfortable wid u taking my name.

Annie: Dats gud Acha Geet now u should go nd give bro his coffee first or else he’ll get hell angry on poor Nakul.

 

Geet nodded nd pours d coffee in a mug nd headed towards Maan’s room to give him his coffee.

 

*********************************************************

 

Wen Geet reached to their room she saw Maan getting ready for office. Though technically it was their first day after marriage nd he was supposed to go wid her to her home for Pagphere nd here he’s getting ready for his office but Geet don’t want to bother him for anything. She even don’t know whether she had any kind of right in dere relationship or not so it’s better if she gives him his space nd not interfere in his private lyf. Thinking dis she silently went inside their room nd placed the Coffee mug on d nearby table. Maan had his back towards her nd she thought dat she’ll quickly leave after placing the mug but d tinkling sound of her anklets grabbed his attention nd he turned to look at her.

 

“Wo ur Coffee” Geet said as soon as she saw him turning towards her nd dats wen she realized dat he was wearing the same shirt dat she had selected for him.

 

She don’t know y but she felt an unknown happiness in her heart to see him wearing her choice of shirt. She thought dat may be he’ll not like it if she places his clothes nd all but seeing him wearing her choice of clothes cleared all her doubts. She was lost in her thoughts wen she saw the top 3 buttons of his shirt was open revealing a part of his well toned chest. Geet kept looking at his muscular Body for a while. His muscles which were bulging from his Shirt, his well toned V-shaped chest dat was revealing from his shirt, the stubble on his face everything was giving him a macho look. She immediately looked away wen she realized dat she was gaping at him nd dat too in front of him.

 

Maan was watching the change in her facial expressions from the she entered inside room. She saw her getting startled wen he had turned to look at her nd den dat slight smile on her face wen she saw him wearing her choice of clothes. He was happy to see her smile nd thanked God umpteenth tym for not letting him change his mind nd wearing d shirt she has selected for him atleast like this way she smiled nd least he can do is to give her enough happiness in dis relationship which was in his hands nd den he saw her gaping at him which was not new to him. He knows his effect on Girls but wat he didn’t know dat Geet can too get affected by him who had always teased him for his macho look nd den he saw her getting embarrassed nd he understands dat she realized dat she was gaping at him nd not wanting to embarrass her further he decided to break dis silence.

 

“Wo Actually the button of my Shirt has broken nd I was trying to fix it up” he clarified as if trying to clear y the top 3 buttons of his shirt was open.

 

“Should I help u?” Geet asked innocently nd Maan just couldn’t refused her so he nodded his head in approval.

 

Geet goes near him nd takes needle nd thread from him nd started to sew his button while trying her best to not to look at his bare chest again. She whacked herself mentally for gaping so openly at him especially den wen she knows dat he might not like it. She shrugged off all her thoughts from her mind nd continued to sew the button. Maan looked at her while she was sewing the button. She was looking so innocent while sewing it. She is performing every duty of her part without expecting anything from him. God knows from where she get dis much understanding. He had never thought wen he met her first that dere will be a tym wen he can see her dis side also which is so mature nd understanding. He had always seen her chirpy nd bubbly side nd nw he wonders wat more he had to see about her.

 

“U know hw to sew Button?” he asked trying to reduce the awkward silence between dem

 

“Badi Maa se sikhaya tha. She said dat every girl needs to know dese basic things” [Badi Maa had taught me] Geet replied calmly while sewing the button.

 

Another round of silence prevailed between dem nd Maan dnt know what should he say further. It was strange initially dey dnt need any reason to initiate the conversation nd nw dey don’t know about what dey should converse. While sewing The button NT’s words came in Geet’s mind nd unknown to herself her eyes started to began teary but she tried her best to hold back her tears which didn’t go unnoticed by Maan. He saw trying to hold back her tears but didn’t know the reason behind it. He wanted to ask her d reason of her sadness but before he could ask something he saw her leaning towards him nd his words got struck in his throat

 

Geet had done wid sewing the button nd she leaned down to cut the threat from her teeth. Maan felt her warm breath on his chest nd it took every fiber of his body to gain control on himself. Dere was a sudden urge in him to hold her close in his arms nd keeps her safe from all dose things which brings tears in her eyes. It was weird dat he was feeling something like dis for a girl who was just his deceased wife’s sister till yesterday nd now his wife. He don’t want to feel all dis for her neither he wanted to give her any false hope but wat should he do feelings dat was all of a sudden aroused in him out of nowhere.

 

Unknown to the havoc created in Maan’s heart nd body Geet cuts away the thread nd keeps the needle nd remaining thread aside nd looked at him only to find him lost somewhere. She thought may be he’s remembering Sameera so she decided not to break his chain of thoughts nd turns to leave wen Maan holds her wrist stopping her from leaving. Geet’s breath got hitched in her throat wen he stopped her from going. She didn’t understand why did he stopped her from going nd before she could understand anything she found him turning her towards him by holding her shoulders.

 

Geet had her head dipped down in order to hide her tears nd Maan slowly lifted her chin up so that she can meet up his eyes. Maan saw the tears in her eyes which she was trying to hold back nd nw understand clearly dat something is really bothering her.

 

“Wat happen?” he asked her in a soft voice trying to know the turmoil of her heart

 

“Nothing the button has been fixed so I m going back” she said in a low voice not wanting him to know wats going in her heart.

 

“I m not asking about that. I m asking y u are sad? Y dere are tears in ur eyes?” he asked while boaring his eyes into hers

 

“Nahi aisa kuch bhi nahi hai. I m not at all sad” [no its nothing like dat] She said while putting a fake smile on her face but Maan was just not ready to let it go

 

“Geet Do you know something? U dnt know how to lie den y are you trying to do that. Nd moreover no matter hw hard u try to say lie but ur eyes says everything dats dere in ur heart nd here dey are speaking more den required”  he said while wiping away the tears that has been formed at the corner of her eye. Geet just looked at him in awe thinking hw well he understands her though without any strong feeling between dem yet he understands what’s going in her heart.

 

“Geet, Ghar ki yaad aa rahi hai” [Geet, r u missing ur home?] he asked bringing her back from her reverie

 

“Nahi�. wo�” she fumbled wid her words nd Maan clearly understands her hesitation. He smiles inwardly seeing her like dat. she never hesitated before saying something nd nw. *sigh*

 

“Geet I knw d circumstances in which we got married, its not easy for any of us to accept dis change so soon nd especially for u whose dreams were totally different. U must be missing Ur Home nd especially Ur Di (he paused for a while nd den continued) I knw I can’t fill dat void in Ur lyf, none of us can nd the relationship we are sharing nw I knw its hard for u to be frank wid me like before. I knw our marriage is a compromise but Geet none of us can’t deny dis fact dat we were very much friendly before dis so wid dat relationship u an still tell me anytime anywhere whatever is bothering you. As a friend I’ll be always dere for you. I knw from nw on people will see u as taking Sameera’s place in our lives nd may be this can hurt you but we both know wats the truth is nd y we are in dis relationship so never pay any attention to any of dem who compare u wid Sameera. You understand wat I m saying” He asked while wiping away d tears dat has been welled up in her eyes nd Geet just nodded innocently.

 

“So nw dnt cry nd never hide ur turmoil from me. Geet I can’t see u in tears ever” he said wid concern surprised from his own choice of words. Yes he cares for her no doubt but he had never expressed it in dis way

 

“I mean no one in dis house can see u in tears. u are important or everyone so never consider urself Different from any other member of dis house moreover I had promised Sameera dat I’ll always take care of you so��” he said while trying to cover up wat he said earlier nd left his sentence midway to make her understand in her own way wat he wants to say.

 

Geet just keep looking at him wid awe. How easily he had made her feel better. Ya its true dat dere relationship is not like others. Dere Marriage is a compromise but he said dat he’ll always be there for her as a friend nd dat was enough for her. she had never expected anything from him for dis marriage yet he’s trying his best to keep her happy nd comfortable in their relationship nd dats really a big thing for her.

 

“I Promise dat I’ll never hide my worries from you” Geet said after a long silence wid a smile on her face.

 

[Aakriti jumping out of nowhere “Oye Wat about Coffee?Shocked Haven’t it get cold by nowErmm ]

 

“Good I always want dis smile on ur face. Dis is the least we can do in our relationship right?”

 

“Right” she said wid a smile nd turned to leave nd Maan also started to get ready. Just den Geet’s gaze falls on d table where his coffee was placed nd dats wen she realized dat he didn’t had his coffee till nw nd she knows hw much particular he’s about everything

 

“Suniye” she said softly nd Maan just instantly stopped buttoning his shirt listening to her addressing. Its strange dat dis is d third tym from last nite she’s addressing him like dat yet he feels something different Everytym. Shrugging off all his thoughts he instantly turned to look at her

 

“Wo� Aapki Coffee thandi ho gayi hai, main doosri lekar aati hoon” she said understanding his questioning gaze while lifting his coffee mug from the table [Wo.. ur coffee gets cold nw… i’ll bring the another one]

 

[Me thinking “Badi Jaldi yaad aa gaya”]

 

“No need Geet, I m coming downstairs for breakfast in a while so will have my coffee over dere only, hhmmm” he said while stopping her from going

 

“But you are always punctual in everything nd because of me ur schedule has been disturbed” she said while feeling guilty

 

“Geet its not ur fault. Nd if we see den because of me Ur schedule too gets disturbed, I mean u were going downstairs after placing my coffee but u had to stay over here for my button so u see its balanced” he said wid a smile while Geet just looks at him in surprise. As far as she knows him he had never made compromise wid his schedule so was he doing dis because of her. She was about to say something wen she heard Dadimaa calling her from downstairs

 

“Geet u go nw. I’ll join u in the breakfast after a while” he said nd turned to get ready for office while Geet too turned to leave giving a last glance to him.

 

*************************************************************

 

At the breakfast table every member of KM including NT too but she had been specially advised by Dadimaa to not to speak anything non sense so she was just sitting over dere wid an annoyed face. Since it was first day of Geet at KM after marriage so she had especially made everyone’s fav. Dish for breakfast. Though Dadimaa had stopped her a lot yet she prepared the breakfast wid the help of Annie who tells her about everyone’s choice. After a while wen Maan came den everyone had started having Breakfast. Savitri Devi had purposely haven’t told anyone that Geet had made the breakfast as she wanted to know everyone’s reaction.

 

Everyone liked the food prepared by her especially Maan who had found different taste in the food today. He don’t know y today his Pasta tastes different wen Nakul makes the same thing everyday. Before he could say something Vicky spoke in between.

 

“Bhai Waah kya breakfast hai aaj. Ek to mere Fav. Kande Pohe nd Uspar se itna tasty. Yaar Nakul aaj to tere haathon ko kiss karne ka mann kar raha hai” Vicky said while relishing the food while everyone laughed at the table nd Maan just shakes his head in disbelief. [Wow! wat a breakfast. first of all it’s my fav. Kande Pohe nd on top of dat so tasty. yaar nakul i just want to kiss ur hands today]

 

“Vicky its good that u like the food but credit goes to someone else nd not Nakul” Dadimaa said while eyeing Geet

 

“Wat? Ye Nakul ne nahi banaya hai? Dnt tell me Dadimaa ki is Bandariya ne aaj breakfast banaya hai.” He said while whacking Annie who was sitting next to him. [Wat nakul had not made dis breakfast? dnt tell me dat dis bandariya had made it]

 

“Oye Bandar! Behave ur self or else��” she couldn’t complete herself as Dadimaa interrupted

 

“Vicky! Annie stop it you two. Nd Vicky for ur kind information today’s Breakfast has been prepared by Geet.” Dadimaa said before dey could start their third World War.

 

Maan almost chocked wid his Pasta wen he heard dat Geet had prepared dis. datsy it tastes different today. But wat he didn’t understand dat hw come by now he didn’t know that Geet can cook too nd dat too so good. Before he could say something Vicky again spoke in between

 

“Wat? Geet Bhabhi has prepared all dis. OMG! I did not know dat she can cook so well. Bhabhi where are Ur hands I really want to kiss dem nw” Vicky said while looking at Geet.

 

Maan who was smiling till nw listening to Geet’s praise gives an angry glare to Him nd he just gulped his saliva in fear seeing his deadly glare while NT just shakes her head annoyingly seeing so much drama over simple breakfast. her jealousy for Geet had doubled nw hearing so much appreciation for her

 

“Oh I m sorry I forgot dat I can’t do that nw. but Bro. can do it right. Bro. why don’t u kiss Bhabhi’s hands. I m sure u too had loved the pasta prepared by her” he said nd Maan choked wid his food while Geet had almost spilled the water dat she was pouring in d glass listening to him.

 

Dey looked each other’s flushed faces not sure hw to react to dis situation. They have to present demselves as a happy couple to rest of the family but dis is something dey can’t do nd cherry on top Vicky is continuously pestering dem for dat. No matter its just a simple kiss nd dat too on hands but Maan knows dat Geet won’t feel comfortable wid it nor did he. He looked at her nd was thinking of any way to escape wen his cell phone rang nd he sighed in relief nd thanked Adi mentally for his timing. He excused himself nd takes the call nd Geet sighed in relief

 

It took Maan sometym to finish the call nd wen he came back d kiss slips from Vicky’s mind nd dey had dere rest of breakfast peacefully. Maan silently appreciated through his eyes Geet for the breakfast to which she accepted by giving a smile which didn’t go unnoticed by Savitri Devi nd she smiled inwardly praying dat soon dey accept each other fully nd without any compromise.

 

After Breakfast Maan gets up from table nd started heading towards outside. Everyone thought dat he’s leaving for office wen he had to take Geet for her Pagphere. Dey wanted to stop him but none had courage to talk to him. Amidst of all dis Geet was sitting relaxed because she knows she don’t have right to expect anything like dat from him. Savitri Devi was about to stop him wen he himself stopped in his tracks nd turned to look at dem

 

“Geet get ready fast. We have to go to your house for Ur Pagphere. I am waiting for u at hall.” He said nd headed towards hall leaving everyone behind bewildered nd Geet had almost choked wid her juice.

 

It took Geet sometym to register wat he had just said. Dis he just asked her to get ready nd he’s taking her to her home wen he was supposed to go to office, she thought. Nd as the realization hits her dat he was actually getting ready for taking her to her home automatically a smile adorned on her lips seeing his concern towards her. Once again he had made her believe dat he’ll care for her for whole of the lyftym as he promised.

Everyone was still sitting over dere wid shock written over dere. No one could still able to believe what Maan has just said. He was leaving all his work just to take Geet to her home for Pagphere. For first few seconds even Geet was not able to fathom that whether she was dreaming or Maan really had asked her to get ready.

 

“Koi Please mujhe pinch karo. Did Bro just ask Geet to get ready nd he’s taking her for Pagphere” Dev spoke breaking the Long-Term silence. [Somebody Please Pinch me. Did Bro just ask Geet to get ready nd he’s taking her for Pagphere?]

 

“My Pleasure” Vicky said who was sitting in between Annie nd Dev while pinching him hard on his arm making him wince

 

“Ouch!!! Not so hard Vicky” he replied while rubbing his arm while NT just rolled over her eyes seeing dem making a fuss out of simple thing.

 

“Even I can’t believe this. Maan Bhai had never missed his office for anything, but today…” Annie spoke while still in shock making Geet thoughtful.

 

“Is he compromising his work because of me” She thought wen she listened to Annie

 

“Acha stop all of you now. Maan had never missed his office that doesn’t mean that he can’t miss it today. Nd if you all have forgot then let me remind you all that Maan had asked Geet to get ready fast so Geet bte you go nd Get ready nd don’t pay any heed to their nonsense nd Annie you go wid Geet nd help her ok.” Dadimaa said in between seeing Geet thoughtful knowing very well what’s going in her mind right now

 

“Ji Dadimaa” Geet said nd gets up from the table nd headed towards her room along wid Annie who was continuously chirping about which Dress will Geet wear today and all.

 

*****************************************************************

 

After whole 25 mins. Geet came downstairs along wid Annie after getting ready where Maan nd everyone was waiting for her. As soon as everyone noticed her descending downstairs dey couldn’t help demselves from not admiring her including Maan. For a moment Maan was not able to remove his gaze from her. She’s looking extremely pretty in that Blue Sari that Annie had selected for her enhancing her milky white skin nd the innocence on her face was just adding charm to her beauty. It didn’t seem that she had done any make-up yet she was looking beautiful in her natural beauty. In all total she was looking breath-taking rather nd had certainly taken Maan’s breath away for a moment.

 

Geet noticed Maan’s gaze on her nd automatically a blush crept on her cheeks nd she lowered her gaze feeling shy seeing him looking at her like that. She don’t know why but she had summersault in her stomach wen she saw Maan drinking her beauty wid his eyes. She knows dis is wrong she doesn’t have to feel in this way yet she can’t stop herself from not blushing seeing her husband looking intently at her. She again lifts up her gaze only to find him still looking at her unblinkingly.

 

“OMG! This is really unbelievable” Vicky said out loud bringing Maan nd Geet back from their reverie nd Maan immediately looked other way realizing what he was doing.

 

“What so unbelievable Vicky that you had to spoke out so loud” Annie chided him for ruining the perfect moment between Maan nd Geet which dey both thought that she didn’t noticed but least dey know that she had noticed it the tym only wen she saw Geet blushing.

 

“Arey didn’t you guys noticed. Geet Bhabhi aur bro ke clothes ekdum matching me hai. See Blue-Blue” Vicky said while looking at both of dem. and dis is wen Geet realize that he was actually right. [Arey didn’t you guys noticed. Geet Bhabhi nd bro’s clothes are in mathing. See Blue-Blue]

 

She didn’t realize dis fact that she herself had chosen Blue Shirt for Maan wen Annie asked her for wearing Blue Saree nd dey both had wore the matching color clothes until Vicky spoke. She looked at Maan who was looking other way to hide his embarrassment for gaping at Geet so openly nd Geet thought may be he didn’t feel it comfortable nd must be thinking that she had done dis purposely but least she knows that the reason was something different.

 

“So what Vicky. Ab wo dono couples hai to is tarah se to ek doosre ko compliment karenge hi na. It’s the sign of a happy couple” Dev said as a matter of fact [So what Vicky. Now since dey both are couple den dey’ll compliment each other like dis only. It’s the sign of a happy couple]

 

“But Dev Bhai even u nd NT Bhabhi are also couple nd dat too a happy one but I haven’t seen u both complementing each other like dis ever, infact I hardly see u getting agreed on d same thing, so do u want to say that u both are not happy wid each other:” Vicky replied non-chantily to which NT was just fumed in anger nd Dev gave him an angry glare indicating him to keep his mouth shut.

 

“Stop it you all now. Geet I am waiting for you at car. Nd Dev since I m not going to office today so u pls take care of the meetings that had been lined up today.” Maan spoke in between before dey all analyze him nd Geet as a couple further.

 

“Sure Bro you don’t have to worry for anything” Dev assured him to which Maan just nodded nd headed outside to his car.

 

Savitri Devi just shakes her head on her workaholic grandson who just cant be in peace even on his day-off nd den turned to Geet who was looking at Maan’s retreating figure thinking that he sacrificed his work because of her

 

“Geet beta, dnt worry he’s like that only wen it comes to work nd u knw that. But make sure till the tym you both were at Ur home he don’t even mention about his work ok.” Savitri Devi said while patting her cheeks to which Geet just smiled lightly nd touched her feet for her blessings.

 

“God Bless you. Now go fast he’s waiting for you” she said nd Geet headed outside where Maan was waiting for her.

 

************************************************************

 

Here in the car Maan was sitting in his car with his eyes closed leaning back his head at the seat thinking of the moment which had just passed.

 

Maan’s Monologue:

 

Wat was I doing? I was gaping at her that too so openly. No doubt she was looking beautiful no cut that breath-taking but that doesn’t mean that I will look so intently at her. Nd I didn’t remove my gaze Inspite of her watching me looking at her so intently also. Wat she must be thinking right now. On one hand I keep on saying to her that I can’t fulfill her any expectations that she had from this marriage as I m so much in Love wid her sister nd on the other hand I myself is giving her false hopes. Even in the morning I just wanted to hug her wen I saw those tears in her eyes. it wont be a first tym wen I would have hugged her I mean I had hugged her many tymes before den also wen she feels sad for anything but that was just a friendly hug but now everything changed. Nd wen Vicky said that he wants to kiss her hands den y did I gave him an angry glare. Was I jealous of him at that moment but y would I wen I know the warmth of their relationship from the very first day wen dey become friends. He use to give all dese stupid comments before too but I never gave him an angry glare infact I too use to join wid him but today I didn’t feel good wen Vicky said that he wants to kiss her hands. Y?

 

With the change in our relationship everything between us has also changed. Oh! How badly I wished that everything turned out to be like before where dere was no awkwardness between me nd Geet nd we talk each other freely, tease each other freely nd even flirt wid each other freely but that cant be done. I can’t run away from the reality and the reality is that Geet is my wife today nd wid this reality everything changed between us. But still that doesn’t mean that I would have done what I did few mins. Back. I only Love Sameera nd wat I did few mins back was wrong nd I think Geet too was not comfortable wid it. I’ll apologize to her wen she’ll come.

 

(Maan’s Monologue ends)

 

Maan slowly opened his eyes after lot of questioning nd answering to himself nd looked outside the window only to find Geet coming towards the car. He immediately straightens himself nd opens the door of the car for her. She slowly sits inside nd he started driving the car.

 

*******************************************************

 

15 mins had been passed but none spoke to each other. Geet looked at Maan who was silently driving looking ahead at the road. She sighed nd den looked outside the window

 

Geet’s Monologue:

 

Why is he not talking to me? Is he angry on me? May be. May be he’s thinking that I purposely matched the colors of our clothes to get remarks from everyone that we are a happy couple nd may be he’s not comfortable wid dis PDA. But Babaji u knw Na I didn’t did dis purposely. I mean its true that I agreed to it wen Annie asked me to wear this color but I completely forgot that even he’s wearing blue color shirt. Tu bhi na Geet ekdum budhu hai [Geet u r really stupid], u should have remember wat color is he wearing especially wen u urself had chosen dat color for her. nw see he’s not talking to you.

 

I knw he hates PDA but what should I do; I didn’t did this purposely but yet it didn’t change my mistake. He has been so caring towards me. He even missed his office also for me, had compromised wid his work nd I m just making things difficult. Those days were gone wen we are so free to each other nd today’s reality is that we both are married nd dis marriage is based on compromise. He still loves Sameera Di nd I can’t make things difficult not even by mistake. I should apologize to him. Yes I’ll apologize to him nd will try to make him understand that I didn’t did dis purposely.

 

(Geet’s Monologue ends)

 

“I am sorry” Geet said all of a sudden nd Maan instantly stopped his car listening to her apology.

 

“Y is she saying Sorry to me wen I m supposed to say sorry to her” Maan who was thinking how to apologize till now thought to himself wen he heard Geet saying sorry out of blue.

 

“Wat?” He said while looking at Geet who was looking at him wid baby face

 

“I am sorry” she repeated again

 

“But Geet why are you saying Sorry” he asked her confusingly

 

“Wo… for the matching of the colors of our clothes. I don’t know how it slipped from my mind that u too is wearing same color shirt wen Annie asked me to wear blue Saree. Trust me I didn’t did dis purposely. Actually I as getting ready in so much hurry that it slipped from my mind nd I landed up wearing same color of Saree of which u were wearing Shirt Inspite of myself selecting that color for you in the morning. I am so sorry for all those remarks that Vicky had given because of my stupidity. I know hw much u hate PDA yet it all happens because of me. I m…” she keeps on blabbering only to be interrupted by Maan

 

“Chup Bilkul Chup” he said placing his finger on her lips stopping her from saying further.

 

Though he really liked it wen she was blabbering as after a long tym he was watching her talk so much but yet he needs to stop her because she was apologizing for no mistake of hers. It was he who needs to be apologizing. Geet felt a shiver down her spine wen she felt the touch of Maan’s finger on her lips nd her heart did the flip-flop wid that touch but she immediately controlled herself thinking that it is wrong.

 

“Geet you don’t have to be sorry for anything. It was not your mistake. Nd I really didn’t felt bad for Vicky’s comments because I knw that it’s his habit to speak without thinking twice so u don’t have to feel guilty for anything hhmmm.” He said in a calm voice still having his finger on her lips unknown of the havoc he was creating in Geet with his simple touch.

 

Geet battled her eye lashes seeing him still placing his finger on her lips not sure how to ask him to remove it. Maan as if understanding wat is she thinking immediately removed his finger nd looked other way.

 

“So you are not angry on me” she asked innocently nd Maan again looked at her

 

“No I m not angry on you” Maan said wid a small smile

 

“Den why were u not saying anything till now?” She asked still having doubt that he might be angry on her

 

“Wo actually I was thinking something” Maan said not sure how to tell her that he was thinking how to apologize of what he did few mins. Back

 

“I know what you are thinking?”

 

“You know?” Maan asked while knotting his brows in confusion as how did she know what is going in his mind

 

“Ya. I know what you are thinking. You must be thinking about your work only Na. there must be so much important work over dere nd here u had taken a day-off. I know you had compromised with it because of me but u shouldn’t have done this I mean I would have gone alone too.” She said innocently nd Maan just shakes his head at her innocence.

 

“Geet, first of all I haven’t compromised any work. I mean ya dere is work at office but it can be handle by Dev too so u see I haven’t compromised my work for anything nd as far as coming with you is concerned den Geet its my duty as a husband to take you to ur home for Pagphere just like as a wife it was ur duty to take care of my daily needs. When as a wife you haven’t backed out from Ur duty den how can u expect me to back out. Geet its true that the foundation of our relationship is just a compromise yet dere are few duties from which none of us can back out nd dis one is from one of dem” He said while removing her every doubt

 

Geet: Are you sure it won’t cost your work

Maan: ya I m 100% sure that it won’t cost my work. Now if all Ur doubts are cleared den can we go now? Maa nd Papa must be waiting for us.

 

Geet nodded her head innocently in approval nd Maan just gave a small smile in return. Geet felt million butterflies running in her stomach seeing him smile.

 

“He really looks good wen he smiles” she thought nd den immediately shrug off that thought realizing what is she thinking.

 

Maan raises her eyebrow gesturing “What happen” seeing her facial expression to which Geet just nodded in No. Maan shrug off his shoulders nd de started driving the car.

 

*****************************************************

 

After whole 30 mins of drive Maan nd Geet both finally reached Geet’s home. Dey were about to get down from the car when Maan’s cell phone rang. It was from Adi. He gestured Geet to wait a minute while he takes the call

 

Maan: ya Adi wat happen?

Adi: g-g-good Morning Sir

 

“Adi had u called me to wish me good morning” Maan asked irritatingly frustrated from his useless stammering wenever he talks to him.

 

Adi: y-y-yes Sir, I mean n-n-no Sir. Sorry s-sir.

 

“Adi!!!! Stop stammering first of all nd come to the point” Maan barked at him while Geet just suppressed her giggle

 

Adi: Sorry Sir. Wo I just wanted to tell you that u have to come to office urgently

Maan: Adi I told you in the morning only that I m taking a day-off today den y are you calling me to office.

Adi: s-s-sorry Sir but its an emergency. Our London Clients are coming today to sign the deal nd for that u need to be here moreover they need to discuss about the project too.

Maan: Adi ask them to come tomorrow as I can’t come to office today or Dev will be there at office ask him to handle the meeting.

Adi: Sorry Maan Sir but you need to be here. They are going back tonight itself nd dey especially wanted to meet you so Dev Sir can’t handle this meeting.

 

“But Adi I…” he stopped in between wen Geet gestured him to give phone to her. Maan don’t understand y is she asking for his phone but he didn’t want to refuse her either so he just gave his phone to her.

 

“Hello Adi! It’s me Geet. You don’t have to worry for anything. He’s coming for the meeting.” She said without caring what would be Maan’s reaction after dis

 

“Thanks Geet. Thank you so much. But pls make sure that Maan sir reached by 11 as the clients are coming at 11.30 nd before that we need to discuss few points.” Adi said nd Geet assures him that he’ll be there at tym nd cuts the call. As soon as she turned to give phone to Maan she found him looking at her questioningly.

 

“Wo Adi has said that you need to reach office by 11. The clients are coming at 11.30 so I think you should go now.” she said while avoiding his questioning gaze

 

“Geet why did u do dis?” he asked without paying heed to what she has just said to him

 

“What had I done?”

 

“Geet why did u said to Adi that I am coming to office today. Geet u know once I’ll reach the office den I wont be able to be free soon nd right now its important for me to go wid u to your home yet u said to Adi that I m cuming to office.” He asked confusingly

 

“Because I know that those clients must be important for you as if dey were not den Adi wouldn’t have called you wen he knows that you had taken a day-off nd if you ignore that because of me den I wont feel good. Already u had compromised wid ur work because of me now I don’t want you to compromise anymore that too wen the clients are so important to you so its good if you go to office nd after wen all ur work is finished you can come back over here” she said wid a smile while Maan just cant believe the amount of understanding she had.

 

“But Geet Maa nd Papa…” He tries to protest only to be interrupted by Geet again

 

“You don’t worry about Bade papa nd Badi Maa. I’ll handle dem nd moreover they too would suggest you the same thing that I had said to you so u stop worrying about everything nd go to office or else you’ll be late.” She intervened in between before he could protest further.

 

“Ok as you say. I’ll cum in the evening to pick you up ok.” He said knowing that he can’t win from her to which she just nodded nd turned to get down from the car wen Maan hold her wrist stopping her to go.

 

Geet gets startled wid his sudden action nd turned to look at him. Her heart missed million beats wen she found him leaning closer to her. As a reflex action she started leaning backwards until her back hit the door of car. She looked back nd den at him only to realize that she has been trapped between door nd him nd he’s looking at her intently; same look that she had observed in the morning. She tried to read his eyes to know what’s going in his mind but failed to read dem

 

Geet was about to ask him something wen she saw him slowly raising his hand towards her face nd her breathing gets heavied by anticipating his next move. She closed her eyes wen she felt Maan’s fingers grazing her face slowly moving towards her forehead. She don’t know what it is but she felt an unknown sensation in her wid his touch nd wats more confusing is that she’s really liking dis. she felt his fingers caressing her forehead for some moment nd den slowly withdrawing away. Geet immediately opened her eyes wen she felt the warmth of Maan’s finger missing. She snapped open her eyes nd looked at Maan who had backed out by now. She looked at him questioningly in order to find her answer

 

“Wo ur Bindi was not placed properly so I just fixed it.” Maan answered while looking other way answering her questioning gaze

 

It was true that he had raised his hand to fix her bindi only but wen his fingers grazed on her smooth skin den for a moment he had forgotten everything nd started caressing her face. It was a heaven for Maan to feel her soft skin even for a moment. He don’t know why but he felt like caressing for some more tym to feel her soft milky white skin. Den his gaze falls on Geet who had her eyes closed nd face flushed nd dis is wen he realizes what he was doing. He was again loosing his senses like morning nd dis may make Geet uncomfortable again. So he immediately fixed her Bindi nd moved his hand back nd looked other side to get control on himself before he can do anything stupid.

 

Geet touched her forehead nd den slightly smiled realizing that he notices every minute details of her which even she failed to realize. On the other hand Maan was confused with his own behaviour as he himself didn’t believed that he was looking at her so closely that he noticed such a small thing on her face. What’s wrong wid him

 

“Thank You” she said in a soft voice breaking the trail of Maan’s thoughts. He took a deep breath to get a control on himself nd den looked at her

 

“Its ok Geet you don’t have to say Thank you for such a small thing.” He said wid a smile nd Geet too smile wid him

 

“Geet, I think u should go now or else we both will get Late.” He said nd Geet realizes that he was right. She immediately opens the door of the car nd gets down

 

“Geet, I’ll come in the evening to pick you up nd we’ll go to Mansion together. Hhmmm”

 

She nodded in yes nd bid him bye before turning towards her home. Maan watches her until she was disappeared from his eyes nd den drove off to Office.

 

*********************************************************

 

Geet took a deep breath before pressing the bell to compose herself. She knows that Arnav nd Madhu will have lots of question wen they will not see Maan wid her. she pray to god silently to give her strength to answer all of dere questions without getting dem worried for her nd Maan’s relationship because she knows that wen they will not see him wid her den they’ll only think that she had spoiled her own life by agreeing to this alliance nd dis is something she don’t want so she just prepares herself for every question of them. She knows that they had full right to expect Maan wid her but how can she ask Maan to be here wid her wen he had such an important work at office. Already he had sacrificed a lot for dis marriage so the least she can do is to not to effect her Lie wid her presence. Thinking this she again takes a deep breath nd presses the bell.

 

As soon as she presses the bell Madhu opens the door instantly as if she was waiting for her to press bell only.

 

“Geet, Beta tu aa gayi. I had been waiting for you from so long” Madhu said nd hugged her tight indicating how much she had missed this daughter of hers [Geet, finally u sre here dear]

 

“I missed you a lot Bachha” Madhu said wid tears in her eyes while still hugging her

 

“I missed u too Badi Maa” Geet replied while wiping her tears nd pulling back from the hug.

 

“By the Way I had missed you because at KM dere was no one to scold me wen I get up late but why did u missed me huh? Finally ur biggest trouble had gone from the house” Geet said mischievously trying to light the atmosphere

 

“Chup Pagal! Since wen the children had started becoming trouble for their parents. Nd tu to meri sabse pyari beti hai y shouldn’t I missed u den? U knw I missed you a lot wen I had gone to wake you up at your room but you were not there to say “Badi Maa 5 more mins.” Madhu replied while getting emotional [Chup Pagal! Since wen the children had started becoming trouble for their parents. Nd u were my sweetest daughter, y shouldn’t I missed u den? U knw I missed you a lot wen I had gone to wake you up at your room but you were not there to say “Badi Maa 5 more mins”]

 

“Arey Madhu did u planned Geet to make Geet stand at the door only or u’ll ask her to come inside too.” Both Geet nd Madhu turned to look at the direction only to find Arnav approaching towards dem.

 

“Bade Papa” she whispered nd immediately ran to hug him tight just like before

 

“So hw was my Bacha’s day today” Arnav asked just like the way he use to ask before

 

“very good no excellent. U know Bade Papa today I had made breakfast for everyone at KM nd everyone liked it so much nd Vicky had even said also that he wanted to kiss my hands nd”’.” Nd she went on saying while Madhu just looked at both of dem conversing like dis. oh! How much she had missed to see this smile on both of their faces after Sameera’s death. Just den she realizes that Geet was here alone

 

“Geet, beta Maan kahan hai?” Madhu asked out of blue interrupting Geet’s nd Arnav’s talk [Geet, beta where is Maan?]

 

Geet turned to look at her sumwhere knowing very well that this question must be coming. But the thing for which she was not sure was that what will be Her Badi Maa’s reaction wen she’ll say that Maan has just dropped her over here nd has gone to office though only she had insisted for it. She needs to explain it to dem by using right sets of words or else they’ll get worried for no reason. Thinking dis she looked at Madhu who was waiting for her answer

 

“Badi Maa wo mere saath nahi aaye hai” [Badi Maa he haven’t came wid me] Geet said nd as expected panic appeared on Madhu’s face as she registered Geet’s word. So does that mean that her fear as right. Her Loving daughter is not happy in dis relationship. She thought nd den again looked at Geet who was standing dere worried looking at her Badi Maa’s reaction.

Geet instantly understands wats going in the mind of her Badi Maa. She was never in favour of this alliance no matter it was Sameera’s wish yet she cant ruin the happiness of her one daughter to fulfill the wish of her another daughter nd today wen she told her that Maan has not come wid her den the reaction of her Badi Maa was obvious but she need to make her understand that wat she’s thinking is wrong before she make an assumption of her own.

 

“Badi Maa meri puri baat to Suniye. Wo mere saath yaha ghar nahi aaye kyunki unke office me ek important meeting thi. He had came here wid me nd we are about to enter wen Adi called him regarding the meeting. He was not at all ready to go but I only insisted him to go as it was important.” Geet said quickly before Madhu can think of anything else. [Badi Maa, first let me complete. He haven’t came wid me to home because he had an important meeting in the office. He had came here wid me nd we are about to enter wen Adi called him regarding the meeting. He was not at all ready to go but I only insisted him to go as it was important.]

 

“Tu sach bol rahi hai Na Geet.” Madhu asked still suspicious of what Geet had just said [You are saying the truth na Geet?]

 

“Ya Badi Maa sachi. Aap Na bekaar me hi tension le rahe ho. Unhone kaha hai ki jaise hi unka kaam khatam ho jayega wo aa jayenge.” Geet said while trying her best to convince her Badi Maa. [Ya Badi Maa honestly. U are getting worried for no reason. He said that as soon as his work will be finished he’ll cum over here]

 

“Arey Madhu ab agar tumhara interrogation khatam ho gaya ho to Geet ko aaram se baithne to do. Bechari kabse khadi hui hai” Arnav said before Madhu can ask any other question. [Arey Madhu! If Ur interrogations are over now den Let Geet relax now. Poor girl standing from so long]

 

“haan to maine kab mana kiya hai. Aap hi kabse bolte ja rahe hain. Geet come beta sit over here. I’ll just bring a juice for you.” Madhu said while taking Geet towards the couch while Arnav just shakes his head seeing his wife’s antics nd goes towards the couch near Geet. [Ya so wen did I refused. U urself are talking from so long. Geet come beta sit over here. I’ll just bring a juice for you]

 

************************************************************

 

Here in the office though Maan was in the meeting with the client but his Mind was just thinking about Geet. He still don’t understand y had he started feeling so different for Geet that her nearness, her antics had started effecting him nw. was it because of the relationship they are sharing now? No, this can’t be the reason; it’s just been a day since dey get married so how can she affect him dis much. But if dis was not the reason den wat reason he would give himself to justify about wat he did in the morning or wat he did in the car.

 

Ok he was just fixing her Bindi but Boy! Was he fooling himself? Fixing her Bindi was the last thing in his mind wen he touched her soft skin. The moment his fingers came in contact with the soft nd smooth skin of her face he forgets everything nd just wanted to caress that silky skin again nd again. Nd he would caress it for some more tym too if his gaze didn’t fall on her closed eyes nd flushed face.

 

Wat has gotten onto him? Ok it’s true that they are husband nd wife now but doesn’t he know that this relationship is just for name sake. No he needs to keep a check on his emotions. He can’t ruin everything by getting flowed wid dese emotions. She’s trying her best to cope up wid dis sudden change of relations so he’ll also make sure that he won’t make anything complicated between dem.

 

“Mr. Khurana. Mr. Khurana are you listening.” His client called him again nd again bringing Maan back from his reverie.

 

Huh… ya Mr. Bajaj sorry can we discuss this again.” Maan said after cuming back to reality nd gets himself engrossed in the meeting to get rid from his weird thoughts.

 

*************************************************************

 

It’s been 3 hours since Geet was in her home. It’s been just a day since Geet had left this house yet for Madhu nd Arnav it was an eternity so there are not leaving any chance to pamper her. After having Lunch Geet quietly stepped inside Sameera’s room nd as she stepped inside a rush of emotions had crept in her heart. Dis was the same room where she had spent so much tym wid her sister. Everything was so right nd perfect nd now everything just went upside down. It all just seems to be a dream now as she thinks of the previous days. She goes near Sameera’s table, picked up her photograph nd hold it close near her heart. She closed her eyes nd didn’t realize wen tears had started falling from her eyes until she felt a hand wiping those tears from her face. She opened her eyes only to find Madhu standing in front of her wiping away her tears. Geet just hugged her tight nd cried while Madhu just keep on patting her back to calm her down. After sometym wen she pulled back from the hug Madhu again wiped away her tears gesturing her to not to cry.

 

“Bas Geet now u’ll not cry. I can’t see u in tears beta.” Madhu said while wiping away her tears

 

“Unhone bhi yahi kaha tha” Geet said wid a smile remembering wat Maan has said to her in the morning wen she was sewing the button of his shirt [he too said the same thing]

 

“Unhone? Kisne Geet” [he? Who Geet?] Madhu asked not understanding to whom is she addressing but den suddenly realizes about whom is she talking “Maan ne” nd Geet just nodded her head in yes

 

“Geet you are happy Na beta?” Madhu asked out of blue nd Geet knew that she was expecting an honest answer

 

“Yes Badi Maa. I m really happy. U knw everyone at KM right? Dey pamper me just like you nd Bade Papa. Nd he also make sure that I won’t compromise for anything. U knw he had missed his office today just to take me here for Pagphere. Wo to he got a call from office so he had to go or else he would also be here wid me.” Geet replied to all of her Badi Maa’s doubt nd she knows that she haven’t said anything wrong.

 

“Nd wat about Love? Do u think that u’ll be able to spend ur whole life wid dis Loveless Marriage just in the hope that may be one day he’ll also Love you. He’ll give you the actual place of urs?”

 

“I don’t know Badi Maa but I knw that I m happy. I know he don’t Love me, I know he can’t give me that place that I deserve but I don’t want to force anything on him. nd trust me Badi Maa he is also trying his best to keep dis relationship working but how can I claim that thing which is not mine.”

 

“But Geet…” Madhu tried to protest only to be interrupted by Geet again.

 

“Badi Maa I m fine trust me. I had full faith on Babaji Badi Maa. May be as the tym passes he’ll fall in Love wid me or will give me that place which I actually deserve. U please don’t worry for anything. Just leave everything on tym” Geet replied interrupting Madhu before she gets more worried.

 

“U really had grown-up Geet. I m so proud of you” Madhu said nd kissed her forehead.

 

“Acha now call Maan. See if he gets free from his meeting or not.” Madhu said in order to change the topic while Geet just nodded her head nd dials Maan’s number.

 

The phone kept on ringing but as Maan was discussing some designs wid his team he kept it on silent mode therefore he didn’t saw Geet calling. Get understands that he must be busy datsy not taking her call but wat should she say to Badi Maa. She looked over her shoulders nd saw her standing behind her waiting for her to speak to Maan. Geet knows that if Maan didn’t take the call then Madhu will get worried for their relation yet again. Therefore she sighed nd took a deep breath before doing wat is she going to do.

 

“Hello!… hw was ur meeting?… Badi Maa is asking wen will you come?… no no u don’t leave ur work in mid… I said Na its ok… U complete Ur work… Ya its completely fine… No Badi Maa won’t mind… u complete ur work ok… Bye see u in the evening” Geet said while pretending to talk to Maan on call so that Madhu wont get suspicious but least she knows that Madhu knows that she’s pretending. She’s a mother Afterall hw can she not catch her daughter’s lie but she don’t want her daughter attempt to go futile so she pretended that she didn’t know anything

 

“wo Badi Maa he still had some important work in the office derefore he’s not able to get free soon. But he said that he’ll definitely be here in the evening” Geet said while trying her best to convince Madhu

 

“Oh it’s ok no problem. Work is also important. Come let’s go to Ur Bade Papa or else he’ll complaint that he didn’t got chance to spend tym wid his daughter” Madhu said nd both Madhu nd Geet went out of Sameera’s room not before Geet giving last glance to her room

 

************************************************************

 

Here in the office Maan gets so much engrossed in his work in order to get rid from thinking about Geet that he completely lost the track of tym. He had came office just to attend one meeting but one after another lots of work come up nd he just gets engrossed in it. He didn’t realize that its past 7 of the evening until his secretary told him that he got a call from his home. It was den he looked at watch nd realize that it was about to hit 8. He immediately asked her to transfer the call only to find Savitri Devi on the other side.

 

“Maan wat are you still doing in the office. Had u forget that u have to go to pick Geet” Savitri Devi chided her workaholic grandson. Since the tym Dev informed her about Maan’s arrival at office to attend a meeting she feared for dis only that once he’ll get engrossed ion work den he’ll forget all his surroundings nd the same thing happened.

 

“No Dadimaa wo actually the work was important so I just lost the track of tym” Maan tried to defend himself but all went in vain

 

“I don’t want to listen anything Maan just wind up all Ur work now nd go to Geet’s home. She must be waiting for you” Dadimaa said nd cuts the call.

 

Maan immediately looked at his cell only to find numerous miss calls from Geet nd Dadimaa’s no. he immediately dials Geet’s no. but it was coming switched off. He den dialed the landline no. of Handa’s nd Madhu picked up the phone

 

Maan: Hello Maa! It’s me Maan

Madhu: Arey Maan. How are you beta?

Maan: I am fine Maa. How are you nd Papa?

Madhu: we both are fine beta. Did Geet reached home safely?

 

Madhu’s questions just confuse Maan. y is she asking him that whether Geet had reached home safely or not. Does that mean that Geet was not there?

 

“Maan, Maan beta are u listening?” Madhu’s voice bring him back from his reverie nd he realizes that he cant just blurt it out that Geet haven’t reached home yet.

 

Maan: ya Maa I m listening. BTW Maa how much tym before did Geet left. I mean it really took her long to come to KM

Madhu: beta she left 3 hrs before only. May be got stuck up in traffic. She called you many tymes but I guess u were in meeting so she told me that she had informed you nd you are reluctant before nd den was okay wid it.

 

As Madhu’s word Registered in Maan’s mind he realizes that Geet had lied in her home about talking to him wen he didn’t picked up his cell. He just said a quick bye to Madhu nd cuts the call.

 

“Wat should I do wid dis Girl? Y she always needs to think about everyone so much that she lands up doing such things. Maa had said that she left 3 hours before den y didn’t she reached home yet? Is she ok? O God! I really need to find her fast.” He thought nd without wasting a minute he rushes out from his office takes his car nd started looking for Geet at every possible places here she can go but she was nowhere

 

He once again called at KM hoping that she must have reached by now but she hadn’t reached dere yet so he just cover it up by saying that he had called to inform that he nd Geet will be late.

 

“Where are you Geet? Pls just be safe wherever you are.” he said to himself nd once again started searching her but failed.

 

After 1 nd a half hour of futile attempt of searching her he decided to go back to KM nd tell everyone about her being missing so that they can do something regarding dis. his mind was continuously thinking about Geet. Wat answer will he give to everyone wen they’ll find that Geet is missing. He had promised that he’ll take care of Geet nd here Geet is missing just because of him. Had he not get so much engrossed in work den he would remember that he had to go to Geet’s home to pick her up. Wat if she’s in any kind of trouble? The thought itself was enough to make him shiver. No he won’t let anything happen to her. He’ll try every possible way but he’ll find her out.

 

He was lost in these thoughts wen he reached near the vicinity of the KM wen he saw a petite figure sitting on the bench near his mansion. He knotted his brows nd as he neared his car a relief washed over his face as he saw Geet sitting over dere at the bench. For the first few mins He couldn’t fathom that whether he was dreaming or Geet was really dere but soon he realizes that Geet was actually dere. He instantly stopped his car nd quickly comes out from the car nd goes near her.

 

“Geet” he called out her name as a mere whisper feeling relieved that she’s all safe nd sound.

 

Geet was sitting at the bench lost in her thoughts wen Maan came near her. She didn’t realize his presence until he called out her name. She instantly turned her head only to find him standing near her wid concern nd worries written over at his face. A smile crept up on her face seeing him. She instantly gets up from the bench nd was about to say something wen his next set of words interrupted her.

 

“What the hell are you doing over here Geet? U left Ur home 4 nd a half hour ago nd still haven’t reached to KM? I was searching u madly everywhere but there was no sign of you. Do you know how much worried I was? I thought that you are in some kind of danger nd here you are doing nothing but just sitting on the bench.” He said angrily but more den anger it was panic nd restlessness that he had gone through in this 1 nd a half hour.

 

“Wo I…” she tried to say something only to be interrupted by Maan

 

“Not a word Geet. Haven’t u thought about me once. Haven’t u thought about it once that wat answer I’ll give to everyone wen they’ll not see me wid u once? Haven’t u thought about it once that what would have do if you were stuck up in some sort of danger? Ur cell phone was also coming switched off.”

 

“My cell phone battery was dead datsy it was coming switched off” Geet managed to say this somehow but seeing Maan’s anger she don’t have courage to say anything further.

 

Maan looked other side in irritation don’t know on whom he’s irritated; on Geet for not letting him know before leaving her home nd rather den going back to KM she was sitting over here on the bench or at himself for not paying any heed to her calls wen she was continuously calling him. He turned to look at Geet only to find her looking down at the road while continuously rubbing her upper arms wid her palms. Maan realizes that she was feeling cold as the weather was quiet chilly.

 

“Geet c’mon lets go inside or else u’ll catch cold” he said rather sternly but Geet didn’t missed the concern in his voice. She nodded slowly nd followed him to his car. Once dey get seated in the car Maan drove back to the KM.

 

*****************************************************

 

After 15 mins. Of ride dey both reached to KM. Geet tried to talk to him, to tell him wat she was doing over dere at bench but seeing him concentrating on driving so much she couldn’t muster courage to say anything to him so she just kept quiet. After parking the car inside the garage both headed inside only to find Dadimaa waiting eagerly for both of dem.

 

“Hhmmm so finally you both are here.” she said as soon as she saw both of dem

 

“Sorry Dadimaa wo we got little late” Maan said hiding what actually happened.

 

“Arey Maan beta its ok infact I m happy that atleast u both spend sometym together. U know I was very much worried wen I called you at that tym in office nd found u still working there. I had specially mentioned it to Geet that I want both of you to come home together wen she called me 4 hours back to inform that u are stuck up in some kind of meeting but now I m happy that u both had taken some tym for just both of you. Maan if any of you would have come alone today na den I would definitely not leave you.” Dadimaa said nd Maan instantly looked at Geet who was standing dere wid a faint smile.

 

“O God! She hasn’t got back to KM till now just because of me. Just because Dadimaa wants to both of us to come together nd she don’t want me to face her wrath. Datsy she was waiting for me over dere at bench nd I said so much to her without giving any chance for her to speak. Damn it! How can u be so impulsive Maan” he thought as the realization dawn upon him which only made him feel guilty.

 

“u both must be tired. Go nd freshen up I’ll ask Nakul to warm up the food.” Dadimaa said bringing both of them out from dere thoughts.

 

“Dadimaa I don’t feel like having anything. Had a late Lunch at Badi Maa’s place so I’ll not eat anything.” Geet said while avoiding any eye contact wid Maan.

 

“Even I don’t feel like having anything so dnt bother Nakul for it.” Maan said not wanting to have Dinner without Geet.

 

“Hhmmm y both of you don’t admit that u both had already had Ur dinner outside” Annie said while joining all 3 of dem in their conversation.

 

“No Annie it’s not like that” Geet tried to defend but Annie was nowhere to listen

 

“C’mon Geet nw don’t be shy. Acha leave all dis come wid me I need to talk to you something. Maan Bhai I hope you won’t mind if I steal your wife for few mins.” Annie said mischievously while looking at Maan.

 

“Ya ofcourse but dnt make her stuck up in your talks for long. She’s must be tired nd she needs rest” Maan said half-heartedly not wanting Annie to take Geet away as he badly wanted to apologize to her.

 

“OMG! So much concern. Don’t worry Maan Bhai I’ll not take Geet’s much tym now if u permit den can I take her to my room”

 

“Ya sure. Dadimaa I m also going to my room to take rest. Good night” Maan said nd headed towards his room giving a last look to Geet who had already turned to go Annie’s room.

 

********************************************************

 

Half an hour has been passed nd Geet still haven’t returned to room. Maan was pacing restlessly in room waiting for her. He badly wanted to apologize to Geet for yelling at her. She had done all this just for him nd he didn’t listen to her once.

 

He still didn’t understand y she always keeps everyone’s happiness ahead in front of hers. She agreed to this marriage for Sameera’s happiness, she didn’t claim any of her rights for his happiness, she let him go to office for clients’ happiness, she managed to portray both of dem as a happy couple for his family’s happiness nd today she quietly listened to all his yelling because of Dadimaa’s happiness. Y she never thinks of herself for just once? He was lost in dese thoughts wen he heard the faint sound of anklets indicating that she’s here.

 

He immediately takes a file from side table nd pretended for studying it wen Geet enters in their room. He tilted his head a bit to look at her nd she gave a faint smile in return nd goes near the cupboard to take her night dress nd before Maan could say anything to her she headed inside the washroom to change. As soon as she stepped inside the washroom Maan throws away the file in frustration for not able to apologize to her.

 

“Damn It Maan! Y it’s so much difficult for you. U just had to say sorry to her nd that too for your own mistake. Don’t worry you had one more chance. Say sorry to her as soon as she stepped out from washroom” he thought mentally whacking himself for his stupidity nd waited for her to come out from washroom.

 

After whole 25 mins. Which seems like an eternity to Maan Geet came out from washroom. Maan was contemplating only how should he say sorry to her wen he saw her going towards the bed nd setting the bed. He took a deep breath nd goes near. Before he could say anything Geet turned nd lost her balance seeing him so close to her all of a sudden.

 

She was about to fall back on bed wen Maan held her by her waist nd pulled her towards himself preventing her from falling. For a moment Maan forgot to breathe having her so close to him. He cant remove his gaze from her beautiful face no matter hw much he wanted to. Some wet strands were sticking to her forehead indicating she just had a shower. Unknowingly he tightened his grip around her waist nd pulled her more close so that his breath was fanning her lips. He slowly raises his hand nd removes that strands from her forehead lingering her fingers at her skin for sometym.

 

Geet was totally lost in him wen he pulled her closer to himself. Though he saved her from falling but wen she felt him so close to her she forget every other thing around her. It seems there’s no one present in world except the two of them. Unwillingly she rest her hand on his shoulder holding him tight. Nd wen he tightened his grip around her she just wanted to melt in those arms as if she belonged dere only. She closed her eyes feeling the warmth of her fingers wen he was caressing her skin. It was an unknown sensation for her. Something that she had never experienced before but it felt good, it felt right.

 

Maan looked at her closed eyes as he grazes his finger along her cheeks. Unknown to himself he was getting pulled towards her like a moth towards flame. Somewhere at the back of his mind he knew that it was not right but this moment seems so perfect to him. He was lost in her angelic face wen realization hits him nd he realizes wat he was doing. He instantly loosens his grip around her waist bringing Geet out from his spell.

 

She opens her eyes only to find him looking other side feeling embarrassed from the situation. She too was flushed with the sudden turn of events nd don’t know how to break dis awkward silence between dem. finally she musters u some courage nd decides to break dis awkward silence between dem.

 

“Thank you” she whispered softly nd Maan turned to look at her.

 

“Thank you for saving me” she said t again nd Maan just couldn’t find words to reply her.

 

“U must be tired. U should go and sleep now.” she said nd turned towards bed wen Maan stopped her.

 

“Geet Ek min.” he said nd Geet turned to look at him.

 

“wo I just need to say Sorry to you for yelling at you outside. Actually wen Maan told me that u had left 3 hours back but still haven’t reached to KM den I just got worried. I thought that u are in some sort of danger nd wen I saw you sitting at bench all safe nd sound then I couldn’t tell you that how much relieved I was. Nd to unable to express my worry nd relief I just yelled at you. I m sorry Geet, I know I had hurted you but it was all intentionally. Pls forgive me.” he said it all in one breathe because he knows that if once he’ll pause den she’ll never let him complete wat he wanted to say as she’ll never let him feel guilty.

 

“It’s ok. You don’t have to say Sorry to me. I knw u were worried datsy u yelled at me. It was my mistake too. I should have informed you about it. I don’t know why it didn’t stuck in my mind that I could have also send msg to you nd wen I realize it my cell phone battery was dead. Datsy I sat at the bench near KM so that wen u come to KM then u can spot me easily nd we can go home together as per Dadimaa’s wish. It was me who should be sorry for making you worried for me not you.” She said nd Maan just looked at her dumbfounded. He didn’t know from which material she’s made from that she never found any fault in others. It was completely his mistake today. First getting so much engrossed in his work that he didn’t paid any heed to her calls nd den yelling at her still she found him nowhere at fault. He was about to say something wen her sneeze caught his attention.

 

“Aanchi” she sneezed out loud nd Maan instantly got worried.

 

“Geet, Geet are you fine.” He asked as he saw her continuously sneezing

 

“Yes I… aanchi…I am… aanchi… fine… Aanchi” she somehow managed to complete her sentence while continuously sneezing. Maan recalled the image of her rubbing her upper arms wid her arms nd realizes that she must have caught cold.

 

“Geet, I think u had caught cold. Come wid me” he said as he takes her towards the bed nd make her lay down.

 

“Suniye… aanchi… I m perfectly… Aanchi… fine.” She tried to protest but he was nowhere to listen.

 

“Chup Bilkul Chup! I m seeing how much you are fine. Now just keep quiet, I’ll be right back.” he said nd fished something from the drawer. After few mins Geet saw him coming wid Balm.

 

“I know u are allergic from allopathic medicines so I brought balm. U’ll feel better after applying It.” he said nd started applying balm on her forehead nd nose

 

Geet just looked at him in awe as he keeps on massaging her forehead nd nose wid balm. He cares for her, no matter hw much their relationship had changed but she knows that he’ll never stop caring for her. She may be not lucky enough to get his Love but she’s lucky enough to get his care atleast nd dis was enough for her for dis lyftym. Her trance of thoughts gets broken wen she felt his hand going downwards towards her throat nd chest. She realizes the gravity of situation nd holds his hand before it touches her throat.

 

“I’ll apply it over dere” she said while holding his hand nd Maan didn’t ignored that slight blush on her cheek nd dis is wen he realizes what he was doing. He was so busy in massaging her soft skin dat he forgets where his hands were heading to.

 

“Ummm… ok but do apply it hhmmm” he said while looking other side nd handling the balm to her while she just nodded.

 

“It’s really late Geet. U should sleep now” he said nd tucked the blanket till her neck nd turned to leave wen her voice stopped him

 

“Thanx” she said softly nd Maan just turned half way nd smiled while looking at her.

 

“Good night Geet. Sleep well.” He said nd headed towards couch nd sets his bed over dere.

 

Geet watched him till he switched off the side lamp nd drifted off to sleep. She smiled as she touched her forehead nd remember his care towards her. She once again looked at him nd den switched off the lamp of her side nd drifted off to sleep too.

 

**************************************************************

 

On the other hand at some another corner of the world a man in his late twenties was sitting while leaning back his head on the chair wid a photo in his hand. He ran his fingers on the pic nd a sweet smile crept up his face as he felt caressing her soft skin wid his fingers.

 

“Geet, I m missing you so much. It’s been almost 2 months since I m away from you. I know you must be missing me too. But don’t worry Geet I’ll be there wid you soon. Just few more days nd den I’ll be there wid you. I know till now u had got the answer of the question that I asked you before leaving nd u must be waiting eagerly for me to tell that answer. Just few more days Geet den I’ll be there to get that answer. The answer that I m dyeing to hear from you. Just few more days. I Love you Geet, I Love you so much.” he said nd kissed her picture ever so softly nd held it close to his heart before leaving from dere.

Days went by nd it’s been 2 months now since Maan nd Geet get married. Both trying dere best to adjust wid this sudden change in dere relationship. Geet continues to take care of Maan’s daily needs nd Maan just let her do whatever she wants in order to keep her happy. Many tymes he felt that Geet had somewhere lost herself in dis marriage. Though she smiles nd talks a lot wid Annie, Vicky nd Dadimaa as before yet he finds that bubliness missing in her which she had before marriage. Guess she had become a bit matured after marriage. But he don’t want this, he don’t want her to lose herself in dis Loveless relationship. Nd what he misses the most is the warmth of their relationship like it was before. He can’t talk to her freely like he use to do before. He had to think twice of his actions as he don’t want to give her unnecessary hopes. There was always an awkward silence wenever they are alone though dey both try their best not to make it obvious to each other yet deep in their hearts dey know that their relationship had changed a lot nd it may not be like before nw.

 

So as a result Maan made himself engrossed in work in order to avoid any kind of confrontation wid Geet. But that doesn’t mean that he don’t pay heed towards Geet. He makes sure that Geet don’t face any kind of problem in adjusting wid dis new lyf or she had any kind of uncomfortableness due to their relationship. Only thing he do is to try to not to come on front of her until it’s necessary. At night wen he use to come to their room Geet already goes to sleep nd in the morning the only tym dey see each other is during breakfast or wen Geet brings coffee for Maan. Even in that tym also they try to behave normally as dey use to do before but it seems so difficult.

 

Geet too understand Maan’s turmoil. She can clearly see that he’s trying to distance himself from her but she didn’t make it obvious to him. She continues to take care of him like she use to do. Even though there comes a tym wen she needs him to talk, to tease so that they can get rid from dis awkwardness but seeing him engrossed so much in work she decided not to disturb him nd gives him his space. She cant deny the fact that she’s feeling an unknown attraction towards Maan but Everytym she shrug it off thinking that she don’t have any right. Maan had nd will only Love Sam nd she can never had dat place in his heart nd somewhere it hurts but again it was decided by destiny so y not leave it to Destiny itself. All she can do is to leave everything on God nd tym.

 

It was one such day wen Geet was standing near her window lost in her deep thoughts. Maan had left early for office today nd she was not even able to see him today. She felt an unknown restlessness in her heart just because she had not seen him today, just because she was not able to talk to him for whatever tym they use to talk nd strangely she don’t had any reason for her restlessness. The way Maan took care of her nd their relationship even though after him avoiding her had started drawing Geet towards him. She knows it was wrong, she can’t feel for him in dis way but deep inside her heart she wanted him to be by her side, she wanted their married lyf as normal as any other couple had.

 

Though he never fails from performing his part of duties yet her heart craves for that Love which he had for her sister but den again she had to control her emotions knowing she cant feel dis way not den wen he had clearly told him not to expect anything from him or dis marriage.  But today wen Maan left without even meeting her before had created an unknown restlessness in her heart. Many tymes she decided to call him nd ask whether he had taken his lunch or if he’s fine or at wat tym will he come home but Everytym she keeps her cell phone away thinking that he may not like it. She made herself understand many tymes since morning that it’s fine, he must have some important meeting due to which he left so early, but her heart was just not letting her in peace. She tried to distract herself many tymes but failed so finally she stands near the window to get some fresh air nd calm her beating heart a bit wen she felt a pair of hands covering her eyes.

 

Geet was surprised wid the sudden action. She ran her hand over the pair of hands covering her eyes to recognize the person nd soon a smile adorned her face as she recognizes the person.

 

“Savera!!!” she said excitedly as she felt her best friend behind her.

 

“Yes the one nd only ur best friend Savera. But dis is not fair Geet u always recognize me.” Savera said in a complaining voice while coming in front.

 

Geet can’t express her happiness that she felt after meeting her best friend after 6 whole months. She immediately hugged her tight as the tears started making its way down her eyes.

 

“I missed you Savy” Geet said while smiling through tears still hugging her

 

“I too missed u a lot Geet.” Savy said while patting her back to calm her down knowing very well that she must be crying right now.

 

After a while they pulled out from hug nd Geet made her sit on the couch nearby. After a moment of silence between dem Savera finally speaks.

 

“Geet how did all dis happen? I mean u nd Maan Jiju�.. Married�. How nd wen? U knw after cuming back to India wen I go to Ur house to meet you den Aunty told me that u nd Maan Jiju are married nd Sameera Di is no more. How all dis happen Geet?” Savera asked anxiously

 

Geet took a deep breath nd told her everything hw Sameera died in a plane crash, hw she asked her to marry Maan before taking her last breath, hw dey both get married nd hw are they spending their lives after marriage. Savera was all shocked to listen all dis nd wat makes her sad is that she was not their wid her best friend wen she needed her the most. She knows hw close Geet nd Sam was nd she also knows the warmth Maan nd Geet share in their relationship before dis fateful incident nd she can easily understand at what stage they both are going through now nd Geet had faced all dis alone in dese 3 months while she was in US for her workshop.

 

“Itna sab kuch ho Gaya nd you didn’t even bothered to tell me. Geet, u are facing all dis alone nd u can’t even call me to inform. Forget about you that stupid Vicky also haven’t told me anything not even den wen he use to talk to me every day. I should have understand it then only wen he didn’t talked to me for 1 month or so nd later gave an excuse that he was out for his training nd his cell phone was lost. I should have known it den only that something is wrong.” Savera said both in anger nd hurt

 

“Savy pls don’t get angry. Vicky wanted to tell you but I had stopped him. U were dere for ur workshop nd I don’t want u to divert ur concentration. It was not gud for ur career Savy. I��.”

 

“To hell wid dis career Geet. I don’t want such kind of career in which I was not wid my best friend wen she needed me the most. U were here handling nd facing everything alone nd I was dere busy wid my workshop. Now I get it y u always avoid my calls nd if u take it den also u don’t talk much to me.” Savy said in anger interrupting Geet.

 

“Savy, leave all dis na. Whatever had to happen has happened pls forget everything. Please” Geet said in a pleading voice nd Savera took a deep breath to control her anger.

 

“Geet tell me one thing, R you happy? See don’t lie to me. the way urs nd Jiju relationship is going on had u even realize wat will be its future?” Savera asked in concern nd Geet sighed listening to the same question that she keeps on asking to herself Everytym.

 

“I don’t know Savy wat will be the future of this relationship. I don’t know whether he’ll ever Love me or not. I don’t know anything Savy; All I know is that Di’s wish matters me the most. All I know is that his happiness matters me the most nd for that I’ll do anything. It didn’t matter to me that he loves me or not all that matters me is that I’ll do everything to keep dis marriage working till my last breath without expecting anything from him.” Geet said as she stands up from the couch nd stands near the window.

 

“But will it be easy Geet? Geet we both know that this is not wat u dreamt of. U had never dreamt of having loveless marriage. Nd now u are saying that u’ll keep dis marriage working even after knowing that he may not Love you ever.” Savy said as she came nd stand near her not believing that she’s the same Geet who use to lost in the dreams of someone like Ranbir Kapoor.

 

“I told you before also Savera that it didn’t matter to me whether he’ll love me or not but I’ll not back out from my duty. I knw it wont be easy but if we both are “Destined to be” then Babaji had definitely had something stored for us” Geet said as she looks at Savy nd Savy was amazed to see the amount of maturity in her.

 

“Nd wat about him? Wat answer will u give to him wen he’ll return back Geet? He must be in dis hope that wen he’ll come back den ur answer will be yes. Don’t u think that u need to give an explanation to him too” Savy asked worriedly

(Those who are confused savera is talking about that person who Loves Geet)

 

“Savy, I knw I owe an explanation to him but now I can’t even think of him. Infact I had never thought of him in that way. Nd wen he’ll return he’ll get his entire answers wen he’ll see me married to someone else. Nd if he won’t understand me den I’ll make him understand dat we were just not meant to be nd now I don’t have any right to think about him. I’ll be loyal to my marriage nd my husband.” Geet said wid an unknown proud addressing Maan as her husband.

 

“I am really proud of you Geet. The way u are handling this sudden change in Ur lyf is truly remarkable nd I am sure that God will definitely reward you wid something best in ur lyf. Nd I’ll always be dere wid you, you know that” Savy said assuringly while hugging feeling proud to be her friend.

 

“Acha now enough of these emotional talks. Now go nd meet Vicky before he comes to me complaining that I had kidnapped you.” Geet said wid a smile while pulling out from the hug.

 

“ya I’ll meet him but first he has to face me for hiding all dis from me” Savy said wid fake anger while Geet just laughed

 

“C’mon Savy don’t be so mean. You know he Loves you a lot nd even you too.”

 

“I know Geet but u knw it’s really fun to tease him. Anyways I’ll just go nd meet him” Savy said as she winks nd den left from dere leaving Geet alone in her thoughts.

 

*********************************************************

 

Later in that evening Maan was working in his office wen he recd. Call from Madhu. He frowned seeing her calling as she never calls him during dis tym but thinking it may be important he picks up the call.

 

“Hello Maan beta”

 

“Hello Maa! How are you? Nd how’s Papa?” he greeted only to find worried Madhu other side

 

“Nothing is fine Maan beta. Arnav had got a heart Attack nd we are at xyz hospital. Doctors are saying that his condition is really serious. Beta you pls come here as soon as possible. I am really not able to understand wat to do?” Madhu said panickly

 

“Maa! Maa pls Relax. Nothing will happen to Papa. I am on my way you just be relax. I’ll bring Geet too along wid me. You pls relax” Maan tried his best to calm her nd den without wasting tym he left for Mansion to inform Geet not before asking his secretary to cancel all his meeting that has been lined up in the meeting

 

Throughout the drive to Mansion Maan was in dilemma as to how to break dis news to Geet. Knowing Geet he knows that she won’t be able to take dis so easily. She loves her family to the core nd dere’s no doubt in it. But he don’t have any other option too he had to tell her.

 

“O God! Hw will I tell dis to Geet. She’ll break down completely. Already she was broken due to Sameera’s death nd if anything happens to Papa den she won’t be able to take it. But anyhow I had to tell dis to her. I can’t hide dis from her. O God! Pls give me enough strength to tell dis news to her.” he thought as he continues to drive towards KM thinking how he will tell dis news to her.

 

********************************************************

 

As soon as he reached KM he saw Dadimaa nd Annie sitting in the hall chatting wid Savera. Wen Annie’s gaze falls on Maan she was shocked to see him so early from office today.

 

“What a pleasant surprise Maan Bhai? How come you are so early from office today? Annie asked teasingly but Maan was in no mood for joke.

 

“Annie where is Geet?” he asked anxiously not finding her over dere

 

“Oho! Someone is desperate ha�.” Annie said while winking only to face Maan’s wrath.

 

“Annie stop Ur nonsense nd tell me where is Geet?” Maan roared in Anger making Annie jump in fear

 

“Maan beta Geet is in kitchen. But wats wrong? Is everything ok?” Dadimaa asked worriedly seeing him dis much angry

 

“Dadimaa I’ll tell you everything later but first let me meet Geet” he said nd rushed towards the Geet leaving everyone behind baffled.

 

******************************************************

 

Here Geet was preparing all the fav dishes of Maan for dinner. She had not seen Maan today since morning. God knows whether he had taken his breakfast also properly or not so she wanted to do something which he would like. She was preparing his fav. Chocolate mousse for him wen Maan entered in the kitchen only to find her engrossed in work. He hold back her tears seeing her so happy. God knows hw will she react wen he’ll tell about Arnav’s health.

 

“Geet!” he said softly in order to gain her attention. Geet instantly turned back listening to him. She felt an unknown happiness in her heart seeing him after whole day.

 

“Aap aa gaye? Aap fresh ho jayiye main abhi aapke liye coffee lekar aati hoon. Pata nahi apne subah breakfast bhi theek se kiya hoga ya nahi nd as sure that u had not even taken Ur Lunch properly. U go nd freshen up nd I’ll bring some snacks for you too along wid Coffee.” Geet was so happy to see him that she failed to notice the forlorn look on Maan’s face. But wid every passing minute Maan was feeling heavy in his heart. he was not able to gather courage to tell her wat he wants seeing her so happy but he had to tell her.

 

“Geet listen to me” Maan said seriously nd Geet stopped in her tracks listening to the seriousness in his voice.

 

“Wat happen? U seems to be worried?” Geet asked finally noticing his expressions. Maan took a deep breath before coming near her nd holding her from her shoulders.

 

“Geet, listen to me carefully wat I am going to say (he paused for a while to see her reaction nd den continued) Geet, Wo�. Papa�.. Papa” he fumbled not sure how to formulate making Geet scared

 

“Wat happen to Bade Papa? Is he okay? You are scaring me? Pls tell me wat happen to him?” Geet asked in panic while shaking Maan’s arm.

 

“Geet, Papa had got heart attack nd his condition is serious. We had to leave immediately for hospital.” Maan said it all in one breath nd Geet just thumped on floor not believing wat she had just heard.

 

“No, dis can’t be true. Maan pls say that you are lyieng. Pls say that my Bade Papa is fine. Pls Maan.” she said as she broke into tears.

 

(Aakriti Jumping out of nowhere “O God! She called him Maan not once but twice nd both didn’t even realize it)

 

“Geet, Geet look at me” Maan said as he cupped her face to make her look at him sitting near her

 

“Papa will be fine, trust me. Nothing will happen to him. Pls don’t loose hope like dis. But abhi we need to go to hospital. Maa needs us over dere hhmmm” Maan said as he hugged sobbing Geet sideways trying to console her wen his own eyes are brimming in tears

 

“Let’s go Geet! We have to reach over dere fast” Maan said as he steadied Geet nd after a while left for hospital not before informing everyone about Arnav’s condition.

 

**********************************************************

 

It’s been 1 hour since both Maan nd Geet are in hospital along wid whole Khurana family excluding NT. Geet didn’t moved away from the ICU since the tym she has came to hospital. She was continuously looking at her Bade Papa fighting for his lyf through the glass circle of the door. Her heart cried seeing him in dis cond. Since the tym she gained her knowledge if understanding things she had always found her Bade Papa by her side.

 

After her parents Death wen everyone was shrugging their shoulders to take her responsibility it was him only who had came forward nd took her wid him nd had given all that Love nd care that any parent would give to their children. Because of his Love only she never felt that she’s an orphan. But today she felt like she’s getting orphan yet again.

 

She was crying while resting her forehead on the door wen she felt a comforting hand on her shoulder. She turned to see only to find Maan over dere. Without any second thoughts she hugged him tight nd burst into tears. Maan was hesitant at first but den understanding her condition he hugged her back while patting her back to calm her down.

 

“Maan Bade Papa�..” she couldn’t say further as she was too much chocked in tears.

 

“Sshhh Geet! Dnt cry. He’ll be fine. U had trust on God Na. nothing will happen to him.” he said while caressing her hairs comforting her but his own eyes are burning wid tears but he needs to be strong for her nd he did as he continues caressing her hairs nd back assuring her that he’s dere wid her.

 

***************************************************************

 

Another 2 hours have been passed nd Arnav is still in ICU. Doctors are trying their best but they are not getting satisfactory result. They had even said that if his health doesn’t show any improvement within 2 hours then it’ll be difficult for them to save him. Dadimaa nd Madhu had left for Geet’s home much to Maan’s insistence as it was not gud for their health. Annie, Vicky, Dev, Savera, Maan nd Geet are still at hospital nd Maan assured Madhu nd Dadimaa dat he’ll handle everything. He was pacing at the corridor wen he saw Geet missing from dere

 

“Where is Geet?” he asked all of a sudden nd dis is wen everyone noticed that Geet is not dere wid dem.

 

“I don’t know Maan Bhai. She was here wid us only but don’t know where she had gone all of a sudden” Annie said while looking here nd there to find Geet.

 

“Are you out of ur Mind Annie? I asked you not to leave her alone. U knw from wat she’s going through yet u didn’t understand.” Maan said in anger nd Annie gets scared seeing him like dat.

 

“Sorry Bhai. I had just gone to take water nd she was here only at that tym. But den I didn’t realize wen she left from here” Annie said meekly

 

“Jiju I guess I had seen her going towards Terrace.” Savera said as she reminds of something.

 

Maan immediately left for terrace in search of Geet giving important instructions to Dev nd asked Dev to inform him immediately if Doctor says anything.

 

***********************************************************

 

As soon as Maan reached at the terrace he looked here nd dere madly in search of Geet but she was no where to be seen. Finally his gaze falls at the corner where he saw Geet sitting at a corner while hugging her knees crying continuously. Maan slowly went towards her nd sat beside her. Geet sensed his presence but she didn’t react for anything.

 

“Geet have something. Savy told me that you didn’t even have your Lunch.” Maan said as he forwarded a plate of snacks towards her.

 

“I don’t feel like eating anything.” Geet said as she pushed the plate aside without looking at him.

 

“Geet dnt be stubborn. See u look so pale. Pls have something” He literally pleaded but Geet didn’t budge at all. Maan sighed nd finally put the plate aside. A silence prevailed over dere for sometym. Both didn’t say anything to each other. No words were needed to console each other. Dey just sat over dere without saying anything den it was Geet first to break the silence first.

 

“U know something Maan, wen I nd Di were small we use to play Hide nd Seek wid Bade Papa. Nd u know wen he hides nd I was not able to find him den I use to sit at the corner nd cry fakely so that he came out from his hidden place nd u knw Bade Papa knows that I am not crying in real yet he came out from his hidden place. Nd wen Di complains that y did he came out from his hidden place wen he knows that m not crying in real den he use to say that he cant see me crying den let be it in unreal.” Geet said as a small smile nd Maan too smiled wid her sharing her childhood memory wid her.

 

“Today I am also sitting at the corner but dis tym I am crying for real but Bade Papa is not cuming. Y he’s no cuming Maan? Is he not able to hear my cry or he don’t care for me?” Geet said as fresh tears welled up in her eyes.

 

“Geet�.” Maan tried to say something seeing her condition only to be interrupted by her.

 

“Y Maan Y? Y does it happens wid me? y the person whom I Love the most leaves me? first Maa nd Papa left me but u know I never felt that I am alone because Bade papa nd Badi Maa are dere wid me. I don’t even remember dem because Di nd everyone had given me so much Love. But Den Di also left me. She had also gone away from my lyf (Maan closed his eyes in pain wen she mentioned about Sameera) nd now Bade Papa is also leaving me. I am Bad Na Maan very Bad datsy everyone just leaves me but Am I dis much bad Maan dat everyone just leaves me? Am I dis much bad that everyone just leaves me alone? Don’t I deserve anyone’s Love? Pls say Na Maan do you also think the same. Pls say na” she said as she broke in tears. Maan can’t take dis anymore. He quickly held her by shoulders nd crushed her in his embrace.

 

“Ssshhh Geet, dnt say like dis. u are not at all bad. Trust me. u deserve all the happiness nd Love of dis world. Everyone Loves you a lot dnt feel u are alone, Pls” Maan said as he hugged her tight not able to bear her blaming herself. Geet continues crying in his embrace nd after sometym Maan gently pulled her out from hug nd wiped away her tears.

 

“Geet, you are the best girl I had ever met. The girl who just knows to smile even in odd situations, the girl who can sacrifice her dreams her wishes for someone else’ happiness, the girl who never thinks twice about herself, the girl who always care nd Love even for the strangers den hw can that girl can be bad. You are not at all bad Geet. it was not in our hands to change wat destiny has already planned. Be it Ur Parents demise or Sameera’s or our marriage. So don’t blame urself for anything. Geet if u’ll break down like dis den who’ll handle Maa. She needs you a lot at this tym nd only u can handle her. Pls stop blaming urself for no reason. For me you are the most Lovable girl wid whom everyone wants to be wid. Trust me” Maan said nd Geet just looks at him without saying anything.

 

How easily he had consoled her. How easily he had made her feel special wid his simple words. Though she knows that he didn’t even realize wat he said in order to console her but Maan’s respect in Geet’s heart gets ten times folder after dis. somewhere at the back of her mind she knows that they are bound wid some unknown thread but right now she don’t want to think in that direction. All she knows that he cares for her a lot nd dis is enough for her for dis lyftym. He was here by her side wen she needed him the most wat else could she ask from him.

 

“Geet pls have something.” Maan said while forwarding a bite towards her breaking the silence bringing Geet back from her thoughts.

 

“No, I don’t want�..” she tried to protest only to be interrupted by him

 

“For ur Bade Papa pls. do u think he’ll be happy to know about Ur condition wen he’ll recover.” He asked nd Geet nodded her head in no.

 

“Den pls have something. Trust me Papa will be fine” he said nd Geet felt an unknown assurance in his words to the result of which she opened her mouth nd Maan slowly feeds her the bite.

 

Geet just took few bites nd den again hugged him in order to get rid from her fear of losing someone close to her heart. Maan understands her turmoil nd hugged her back without any hesitation assuring her that she’s not alone. He’s always be dere wid her wid every step of her lyf. no matter if they are bound in dis loveless marriage but he’ll never leave by her side till eternity.

 

Dey remained dere seated in each other arms for wat seems like eternity. Geet was sobbing silently hiding her face in Maan’s chest while Maan was gently caressing her arms to comfort her. It was the loud shrill of Maan’s phone which brought dem back to reality. Maan answered the call still keeping Geet in his embrace. It was from Dev who called him to inform that Doctor has find improvement in Arnav’s cond. nd is suggesting an immediate by pass surgery. Mann’s happiness knew no bounds wen he heard wat Dev has said. Finally there was a ray of hope. He asked Dev to tell Doctor to make all the necessary arrangements while he’ll be there in no tym. He cuts the call nd turned to look at Geet who was looking at him wid confused expression.

 

“Geet, Dere’s a gud news. Dev had called me to tell that Doctor had find improvement in Papa’s cond. Nd dey immediately needed to do a by-pass surgery” Maan told happily to Geet who seems to be lyf coming back in her

 

“You are saying true na. That means My Bade Papa… My Bade Papa will be fine” she asked still not believing.

 

“Yes Geet Papa will be fine very soon. Now c’mon lets go. We needed to complete some formalities over dere.” he said as he helped Geet to get up nd den dey both headed downstairs.

 

**********************************************************

 

As soon as dey reached downstairs Maan immediately completed all the formalities for the surgery. Geet wanted to inform Madhu about it but Maan stopped her by saying that she was already stressed up nd he’ll tell her once the operation was done. Geet can never denied Maan as she knew that he can never be wrong so she agreed to wat he said.

 

Arnav’s surgery was started nd Geet was pacing restlessly outside the operation theater. Maan saw her nd gently made her sit on the bench while he seated next to her. Tension was clearly visible on her face nd Maan knows that she’s still feeling scared of loosing her Bade Papa. He gently kept his hand on hers nd squeezed it assuring her that everything will be fine. Geet immediately looked at his hand nd den at him who had his eyes fixed on hers. He gently wiped away the tear that has formed at the corner of her eyes.

 

“Geet, Papa will be fine. Doctors are treating him nd dekhna he’ll soon play Hide nd Seek wid you again nd dis tym even I’ll join you guys.” He said nd Geet chuckled a bit seeing his effort to make her feel better

 

“Geet, don’t be scared for anything. Nothing will happen to Papa. U’ll not lose anyone else in your lyf anymore. Trust me.” Maan said assuringly as he gently squeezed her hand yet again.

 

“I trust you Ma… I am sorry wo…” She left her sentence in mid as she realized that she’s been calling him wid his name for a while without realizing wat she was doing.

 

“Geet, u can call me by my name I don’t have any problem in it. I mean gone that eras wen wives can’t call their husband wid dere names.” Maan said as he sensed her uncomfortableness

 

“But how can I…” she tried to say something only to be interrupted by him.

 

“Geet, our relation is much more different den the other couples. We were Gud friends before marriage nd I want to continue the same after marriage too. No matter in whatever circumstances we get married but we were and will always be friends nd I don’t think that friends call each other by ‘Suniye’ nd all. Right?” he asked wid a smile while Geet just nodded

 

“So from today remove dis ‘Suniye’ from between us nd call me Maan. Geet, It’ll be gud if we try to diminish dis awkwardness between us as much as we can, hhmmm” Maan said nd as usual Geet just couldn’t deny him.

 

Geet just kept looking at him in awe. How can anyone be so understanding nd caring. Till now she thinks that only her Bade Papa is like that but today she can proudly say that her husband is same as her Bade Papa. The thought ‘her husband’ had filled her heart wid an unknown proud. Yes she’s lucky to have him as her lyf partner though she knows that their relation can never go beyond wat they are sharing today but atleast she have him beside her nd that’s enough for her. She can never expect anything from him but for one thing she’s sure that he’ll always understand her unsaid words nd will always care for her like dis only. Geet gently rested her head on his shoulder as she felt her strength coming back to her while Maan just hugged her sideways comforting her.

 

Unknown to both of dem someone was watching the beauty of their relationship. It was Savera who was watching all this from a corner nd tears of happiness formed in her eyes as she watched them together like this. She was hell worried till now wen she came to know about Geet’s marriage wid Maan but seeing dem together like dis now she was sure that her best friend is in safe hands nd nothing could be more best for her. She quietly left from dere without disturbing dem silently praying to God that dey remain wid each other like dis only in each nd every phase of their lyf but wid the essence ‘Love’ present between dem.

 

******************************************************

 

Arnav’s Surgery was done successfully nd Doctor informed them that he’s out of Danger now but they need to keep him in hospital for the next 10-15 days. Geet’s happiness knew no bounds after listening to wat Doctor has said nd she immediately hugged Maan expressing her happiness. Maan smiled in relief seeing her so much happy. Last few hours was really hard on everyone nd especially on Geet. The way she had broken down in front of him had really scared him but now seeing her dis much happy had made him happy too nd he silently thanked God for making her happy by keeping Arnav safe.

 

He excused himself from dere by saying that he’s going to inform Dadimaa nd Madhu regarding Arnav’s health nd went in the far corner of the hospital. He take out the wallet from his pocket nd immediately opened it nd looked at the pic of Sameera while smiling through tears.

 

“Sam, Papa is absolutely fine now nd Geet, she is also very much happy. U had seen Na how she had broke down but I’ll not let her break down like dis again. I promised you that I’ll take care of her nd I’ll fulfill that promise always. I’ll try my best to keep her happy always.” He said as he kissed Sameera’s photo nd den closed the wallet back after looking at her pic for sometym nd went back to inform Madhu nd Dadimaa.

 

*********************************************************

 

Next couple of days were really hectic for both Maan nd Geet as most of their tym spend in the hospital only taking care of Arnav. Geet goes to the hospital after making sure that she had done her daily chores nd Maan too joins her in the hospital handling Dev all the responsibilities. Maan had given strict instructions Dev that he’ll only call him to office until dere’s something important. Maan don’t want to leave Geet alone in the hospital. Though he knows that there are other peoples too but he also knows that if Geet will feel any uneasiness then she won’t tell it to anyone. Moreover once she gets engrossed in something den she forget about herself therefore he needed to be there wid her.

 

This follows for 10-15 days until Arnav was in Hospital. Madhu was noticing the unspoken relation between Maan nd Geet but she didn’t say anything to Geet about it. Its gud that they are trying to adjust in their Marriage. The way Maan took care of Geet in the amidst of all dese had developed a hope in Madhu’s heart nd she wished that Geet gets all the rights of her part soon.

 

It was finally a day of Arnav’s discharge. He was much better from before yet Doctor advised him to take complete rest for atleast 1 month. Maan nd Geet both were present in the hospital at the tym of discharge. Maan noticed that Geet was a bit lost since the tym they were in hospital. He tried to talk to her but every now nd den he was stuck up in some work. Finally wen Nurse asked Arnav to change before leaving the hospital Maan found the opportunity nd he took Geet aside to talk.

 

“Geet wat happen u seems to be lost somewhere since morning.” He asked as he noticed forlorn look on her face

 

“Wo nothing… I am fine” Geet said while looking down.

 

“Geet, do you want to go home wid Papa.” He finally asked as he looked at her hesitation nd Geet instantly looked up at him in surprise.

 

“Wat? You think I won’t be able to understand it?” he asked as he notices her surprised look

 

“No I thought that…”

 

“Geet I knw how much you love Papa nd you don’t have to feel hesitate for going wid him. I know only you can take gud care of him because he’ll not listen to anyone but you. Den why are you hesitating in telling me this? Now stop worrying nd stay wid Papa nd Maa for as many days as you want.” He said wid a smile

 

“Are you sure you don’t have any problem. I mean how will you manage…”

 

“Geet, I am not a kid. Don’t worry about me I’ll manage. Papa needs you more so you should go wid him.” Maan said in between nd Geet’s face instantly lights up.

 

“Thank you So much Maan. You don’t know how much happy I am.” Geet said while smiling widely while Maan just smiled

 

“Ok now enough of your Thank you. Go nd see if Papa is ready till den I’ll complete the remaining formalities.” Maan said while Geet just nodded nd rushed to her Bade Papa while Maan just stood dere looking at her retreating figure.

 

******************************************************

 

Maan stayed till late at night at Geet’s place after dropping dem home making sure that they don’t face any problem after he left. He had given strict instructions to Geet to call him immediately if she needs him without any hesitation. Geet just smiled at his concern nd assure him that she’ll definitely call him if dere will be any need. After making sure that everything is fine he left for his mansion but not before having a big speech from Geet to take care of him nd all.

 

Next Morning was not as usual for Maan. Wen he waked up automatically his eyes went on the bed nd he frowned to see it empty. Den it struck him that Geet was not here, she’s at her home. He just shakes his head on his stupidity nd went to gym for his workout. After coming from gym he straightaway went to shower. After a while wen he came out from shower he saw his coffee mug placed on the table. For once he thought that may be Geet had placed it but den he realizes that Geet is not here to do this. He took the cup nd as soon as he takes the first sip he just spit it out.

 

“Yuck! It tastes so bad” he thought as he put the mug away. It’s strange that before his marriage he use to have Coffee prepared by Nakul only but then he didn’t find it this much bad. Probably today Nakul had made some mistake while preparing it or may be he was addicted to the coffee prepared by Geet.

 

He thought as he mentally made a lecture he’ll give to Nakul for such a bad coffee nd move towards Bed to pick up his clothes only to find that there was none. He whacked himself hard on head as he realizes that how his clothes could be there wen Geet was not here to place it for him. O God! He had really got habitual of her taking care of his daily needs. He opens the cupboard to take out some clothes but couldn’t able to select any

 

“Wat the hell is wrong wid you Maan? Can’t you just take out some clothes for yourself? Waise to very proudly u had said that Geet don’t worry I’ll manage everything nd here you are not even to take out Ur own clothes” he thought as he look through the whole cupboard but not able to select clothes for himself.

 

“O God Geet! U had really spoiled my habbit nd now I am missing you so much.” He thought nd den immediately realized wat he thought. Did he just said that he was missing Geet? Well he can’t deny it actually. Without her he was really not able to do anything. He was contemplating on his thoughts wen he heard Annie’s voice outside his room. It seems she’s coming to his room only

 

“Now y is she coming over here? I should hide somewhere before she sees me in dis mess.” He thought nd immediately went to washroom before Annie could see him. Last thing he wants is to Annie seeing him in dis mess nd den later gets the target of her teasing.

 

“Ya Geet I reached your room” he heard Annie saying nd guessed that he was on call wid Geet. But y would Geet will ask Annie to go to their room, he thought as he listened further to their conversation.

 

“No Maan Bhai is not in room. I guess he’s still taking shower… Ya Nakul has placed his coffee on table… Ok I had opened the cupboard now tell me which shirt… Ok I had taken out the black shirt… Ya I got the waistcoat, tie nd trousers too… Geet, I couldn’t able to find Bhai’s Wallet nd Handkerchief… Ok ok I got it… ya I placed everything nicely on Bed… Room’s cond…? Don’t ask it’s totally in mess wid files scattered over here nd dere… Ok baba I’ll ask Nakul to clean up the room… fine I myself will place all his files properly… Yaar Geet you are wid uncle Na den take care of him Maan Bhai can manage over here… Ok baba I agree that god has given all understanding to you now if my job is over den can I go I haven’t even brushed my teeth yet… ya from tomorrow I’ll get up early nd will place everything before Maan Bhai comes from gym… Ok bye nd take care of urself too.” Annie said finally hanging up the call nd den left the room unknown of the presence of the person who has listened everything

 

Maan came out of the washroom as soon as Annie left nd saw his clothes nd other things placed on bed nicely. Though not like the way Geet use to do but very much like that. He smiled seeing her care. She was not here wid him yet she didn’t failed to perform her duties. She knows that he wont be able to manage everything by himself so she appointed Annie for all dis. he chuckled a bit as he imagined Annie’s expression while she was talking on phone wid Geet. He remembered their first day after marriage. How much apprehensive she was towards everything wen she took out his clothes nd how her face has been lightened up wen she saw him wearing her choice of clothes. Since den it was her habbit to place his clothes on bed before he came out from washroom.

 

It’s been 2 nd a half months of their marriage nd he’s already getting habitual of her taking care of his daily needs. What’s wrong wid him? He was never like that. He didn’t even let Sameera do all dis den y dere’s an exception wid Geet. Probably he didn’t stop her in order to keep her happy nd later it becomes his habbit. He thought as he gets dressed for office nd den went downstairs for breakfast giving a last glance to his room.

 

****************************************************************

 

On the other hand Geet’s condition was not less then Maan’s too. We she got up then the first thing she did to see whether Maan is awake or not but den she realizes that she’s at her home. She slapped her forehead on her stupidity nd den left for washroom for shower. After coming out from shower she straightaway went to kitchen to prepare Black coffee for Maan only to realize that he’s not here to have his coffee. Only she knows how hard it was for her to understand her Badi Maa that she had prepared Black coffee for herself wen she saw her wid a coffee mug.

 

She immediately came back to her room in order to save from the further interrogation of her Badi Maa wen she realizes that Maan must be facing difficulty in the selection of his clothes. She first thought of calling him but den she shrug off thinking that he may not like it nd will think that she’s trying to intrude in his lyf unnecessarily so she decided to call Annie nd asking her help. Annie was sleeping peacefully wen Geet called her. the continuous ringing of the cell disturbs her sleep nd she somehow managed to answer the call without looking at the number

 

“Hello!” she said in a groggy voice still half asleep

 

“Annie!” She heard someone addressing her but she was in too much deep sleep to recognize the voice

 

“Sorry I don’t have dates right now. Nd anyways I don’t work wid any Tom, dick nd Harry I can only work wid Hrithik so don’t call me until u had an offer for me to work wid Hrithik.” She said nd was about to hang up the call wen she heard someone yelling at her on other side

 

“Hrithik ki Mausi. Sharafat se uth jayo warna dreams me aakar tumhara murder kar doongi. Now get up fast.” Geet yelled nd Annie instantly gets up from bed wen she heard Geet on other side.

 

[Hrithik ki Mausi. Now get up without any fuss or else I’ll do your murder by coming in your dreams. Now get up fast]

 

“Geet! Its you. Wats wrong y u called me in the early morning.” Annie said as she yawned.

 

“Early? Madam just see the watch first nd den say anything. Nd anyways I need your help”

 

“Wat help?”

 

“Just get up from your cozy bed nd do wat I say to you. NOW!!!!” Geet said in authorative tone nd Annie instantly gets up from the bed nd follows Geet’s every instructions

 

After making sure that Maan’s everything were at place nd he won’t face any problem she finally sighed in relief nd hangs up the call nd goes to the kitchen to help her Badi Maa.

 

********************************************************

 

Here wen Maan reached downstairs he saw everyone was already present on the dining table except one nd that was Geet. He sighed seeing a familiar face missing from the table nd den went to take his seat. Everyone on the table was talking dis nd that. Vicky nd Annie were as usual busy in their bickering while NT was again having some issue wid Dev nd Dadimaa was a mute spectator of all dis. but Maan was not able to concentrate on anything that was going around him. He was thinking what Geet must be doing right now. If she was here that probably she would be serving breakfast to everyone. He thought of even calling to her also but then shrugs it off thinking that she might be busy in taking care of Arnav.

 

“Maan beta why u are not having your breakfast? Is everything fine?” Savitri Devi said as she noticed Maan lost somewhere.

 

“Huh… yes Dadimaa I am fine. Just thinking about something official.” Maan said as he realized that he has been caught

 

“Maan leave all your Official thoughts at your office only. Breakfast tym is family tym so atleast relax over here for sometym.” Savitri Devi scolded her workaholic grandson while Maan just nodded his head like a small kid.

 

“Gud! See I had asked Nakul to prepare your favorite Pasta nd Vegetable Sandwich.” She said as she asked Annie to pass the bowl of Pasta.

 

Maan was about to take the bowl wen he noticed who was giving him the bowl. It was Geet who handles him the pasta bowl wid a smile on her face. Maan couldn’t believe on his eyes as he saw Geet over dere. “Was she really here? May be” he thought as he gaped at her. Geet gestured him wid her eyes to take the bowl nd dats wen he realized that he was gaping so openly at her. He smiled nd took the bowl nd started serving himself.

 

Everyone on the table was looking at Maan as if he had lost his mind. The bowl was still at Savitri Devi’s hand den from wat Maan is serving himself. No no he’s not serving; he was just putting his spoon in air nd den putting it back on plate. As if a bowl was already present over dere.

 

“Dev Bhai, wats wrong wid Maan Bhai? From wat he was serving himself” Vicky nudged Dev as he saw Maan like dis.

 

“I wish I could tell you Vicky but I myself had no Idea. Guess Bro is too much stressed up now a days wid work.” Dev said unbelievingly

 

“But I just wish that he’s not suffering from Schizophrenia. U knw where we actually see the thing which is not in real.” Vicky said only to get an angry glare from Dev.

 

“Maan Bete, are you alright?” Savitri Devi asked worriedly

 

“Yes Dadimaa. Y wat happen?” Maan asked while knotting his brows.

 

“No the bowl is still in my hands then from wat you are serving yourself.” Savitri Devi asked unbelievingly nd dats wen Maan realizes wat he has done. He immediately looked beside him but found no one nd den it dawn upon him that he was hallucinating. He closed his eyes in frustration as he realized he had made fool of himself in front of his own family.

 

“Guess Maan Bhai is really missing Geet. Hai na Bhai?” Annie said in a teasing Voice while winking at Maan.

 

Maan immediately gets up from his chair not wanting to be the target of his Family’s leg-pulling

 

“Maan beta where are you going?” Dadimaa asked as she saw him getting up.

 

“I am going to office”

 

“But breakfast?” Vicky prompts in between

 

“I am done nd anyways I don’t like breakfast today. It’s so tasteless. Nd dis Pasta it’s so bad today.” Maan said irritatingly

 

“But Bro you haven’t even taste it yet” Dev said confusingly

 

“So? I don’t have to taste in order to find out how it tastes. It doesn’t even look gud nd I am sure that it’ll taste pathetic. Even my coffee was not gud today. God knows wats gone wrong wid Nakul today. Dadimaa Warn Nakul to prepare my breakfast nd coffee properly or else just find a new job for himself. I can’t tolerate such things.” He said as he stormed out from dere leaving whole Family behind baffled.

 

“But Pasta was really gud in taste.” Vicky said confusingly as he tasted the pasta yet again

 

Soon a fit of laughter broke on the table as dey realizes the reason of Maan’s such reaction. As usual he had yelled in order to cover his embarrassment. Dadimaa just shakes her head seeing the change of attitude in her Grandson. Probably he had started realizing Geet’s importance in his lyf. She thought as she looked at retreating figure of Maan who was rushing out from dere as fast as he can in order to save from the teasing session of his family.

 

Maan just bangs his fist hard on the roof of car in frustration as soon as he came out. He just can’t believe it that he had made fool of himself in front of his own family. What’s wrong wid him? Y is he behaving like Love-struck teenager? Its not that he’s in love wid Geet den y is he behaving like that. Ok he’s habitual of her taking care of him but that doesn’t mean that he’ll hallucinate her like this. He’s not like this; he was never like this den wat had changed all of a sudden. He was lost in these thoughts en the loud shrill of the ringtone of his cell phone bring him back into reality. He looked at the caller nd found “Geet” Calling. He was not in the mood of taking the call but thinking that it may be something important he answered the call.

 

“Hello!”

 

“Maan, it’s me Geet”

 

“Ya Geet tell me anything important” he said in a non interesting voice

 

“No wo I just wanted to ask that did u had your breakfast properly. Wo Actually…” Before she could complete herself she heard Maan yelling at her

 

“What’s your problem Geet? I told you that I am not a kid I can manage everything myself therefore you don’t have to worry about me as if I am a kid alright. Before getting married to you also I was managing everything myself so I can manage everything in the future too so please instead of worrying about me that whether I had taken my breakfast or not or had got ready for office nd all u take care of Papa. That would be much better” Maan yells at Geet before she could complete herself taking out all his frustration on Geet without thinking twice who was totally unknown of the embarrassment Maan faced.

 

“I am Sorry. I’ll keep this thing in mind.” Geet said in a hurt voice nd Maan closed his eyes realizing that he had shouted at her for no reason but before he could say anything Geet had disconnected the call nd Maan swore that he had listened her sniffing wen she had disconnected the call.

 

Maan banged his fist again at the roof of car realizing wat he had done. He had hurted her for no reason. It was not her fault that he had made fool of himself in front of his family yet he shouted at her for no fault of hers. just now she had started to get normal wid him nd he had made everything worse.

 

“Wat the hell is wrong with you Maan? Y had you shouted at her like dis? She must have felt so hurt. She was taking care of me even after not being here so that I won’t have any problem nd I had just made her cry. This was not right. I shouldn’t have behaved like this wid her. Maan its you who had made this mistake nd now only you’ll fix it.” He thought as he pushed back his hairs thinking wat he had to do next.

 

********************************************************************

 

Here Geet was hurt the way Maan had talked to her. she knows that probably she had gone too far in caring for him wen she knows that she had no right but wat she can do she was habitual of taking care of him in these 2 months nd today also she had called him to make sure that he had his breakfast properly but it seems he don’t like her intruding in his lyf unnecessarily. Nd may be he’s right too, he’s not a kid that he won’t be able to take care of himself. Probably she had made him very much irritated thatsy he had shouted at her like this because he had never raised her voice on her like dis. yes she was hurt, her heart was hurt wen Maan talked to her like this she don’t know why but she didn’t liked it. Only she knows how she was holding back her tears since the tym Maan had yelled at her but she decided that she’ll apologize to him wen his mood will be fine.

 

“Geet, wat happen why are you not having your breakfast Bacchha” Madhu asked worriedly as she saw her playing wid Food lost in some thoughts

 

“Nothing Badi Maa. I am fine” Geet said wid a faint smile but Madhu was not convinced.

 

“No something is wrong. You are not having your breakfast too. Tell me are you feeling fine? Fever to nahi hai Na” Madhu asked as she touches her forehead to check is she fine or not

 

“Badi Maa I am perfectly fine. Trust me. You are worrying unnecessarily” Geet tried her best to convince her Badi Maa but before Madhu can protest further they both heard door bell.

 

“Who could be here at this early morning” Madhu asked as she got up to answer the door.

 

“Badi Maa you have your breakfast I’ll see.” Geet said before Madhu can get up nd went to answer the door.

 

As soon as Geet opened the door she saw the person whom she’s least expecting to be here at this hour. It was Maan who had came to their home instead of going to office. Geet couldn’t fathom that whether she was dreaming or is he really here. Maan didn’t said anything to her nd just kept on looking at her. He knows that he had hurted her a lot and that hurt could be easily seen in her eyes. her eyes are mirror of her heart. They always tells the emotions that were their in her heart. He could see her holding back her tears nd this made him feel more guilty

 

“Aap?” she finally managed to say after so long

 

“Won’t you ask me to come inside?” Maan said in a hoarse voice nd Geet could tell that he was feeling guilty for yelling at her but before Geet could say anything further they both heard Madhu’s voice.

 

“Who’s it Geet?” Madhu asked as she came dere to see who’s at the door wen it took Geet so long to come.

 

“Arey Maan beta what a pleasant surprise. Geet y had u still made him stand on the door let him come inside.” Madhu said as she saw Maan standing over dere. Geet just moved aside letting Maan in still keeping her eyes downcast.

 

“So Maan wat make you come here so early in the morning?” Madhu asked as they take their seats

 

“Why? Now cant I come to my own house like this” Maan asked while looking at Geet who was looking down.

 

“Arey I didn’t meant that but usually this tym u had your office Na.”

 

“Ya Maa but I just wanted to see Papa so I thought of coming here before going to office.”

 

“Well that’s really so sweet of you Maan nd anyways you had came very right tym we are just having breakfast only. Come join us” Madhu said nd Geet instantly looked up at Maan

 

“Wo Badi Maa…” Geet tried to say something but before she could say anything Maan interrupted her

 

“Ofcourse Maa u know I am very much hungry. I haven’t taken my breakfast yet.” Maan said while looking at Geet who was looking at him confusingly.

 

“Den wat are you waiting for? Geet c’mon Serve Maan his breakfast” Madhu said to Geet who was still standing over dere lost

 

“Geet, where are you lost beta I asked you to serve Maan his breakfast” Madhu called Geet yet again wen she saw her lost bringing her back from her thoughts.

 

“Ji Badi Maa.” She said as she came near Maan to serve him his breakfast.

 

Maan looked at Geet as she serve him his breakfast quietly without saying anything. He tried to gain her attention many times but she didn’t looked at him nd went back to sit on her seat after she finishes serving the breakfast.

 

“Now c’mon Geet you also have your breakfast. U know Maan god knows wat has went wrong wid her since morning she didn’t had anything till now” Madhu said nd Maan just stopped in mid way taking his bite. He knows he’s the reason for this condition of hers nd dis just made him more guilty

 

“What is dis Geet? You didn’t had your breakfast till now. You know its very bad thing to skip meals. Now c’mon have your breakfast wait let me serve you.” Maan said as he raises his hand to pick the bowl to serve her while Geet just looked at him unbelievingly.

 

“I’ll do it myself” Geet said wen she realized wat Maan is doing. She took the bowl from Maan nd serve herself nd dey both started having breakfast together. Maan was stealing glances of her by every now nd den only to find her eyes glued on plate

 

“Are Waah Geet! Wen I was asking you to have breakfast then u said that u don’t feel like having nd wen Maan said u immediately agreed. Very good” Madhu remarked while Geet just gave faint smile to her

 

They all had their breakfast wid Maan continuously relishing the food nd stealing glances of Geet. Geet too looked at him by every now nd den but den immediately lowers her gaze wen she found him catching her looking at him. Just den Madhu heard Arnav calling her name nd she immediately excused herself leaving both Maan nd Geet alone. A moment of silence passed nd none spoke to each other. Maan was formulating wid words which he’ll say to Geet to rectify his mistake while Geet was just trying to think how will she apologized to him.

 

“I am Sorry” Dey both said in unison nd den looked at each other.

 

“Wo Main…” Geet tried to say something but Maan silenced her by putting his finger on her lips

 

“Sshhh Geet pls don’t say sorry for no fault of yours. It was me who was at fault. I shouted at you for no mistake of yours. It was just I was irritated on something nd I just took my irritation on you. It was not your mistake trust me. I am Sorry Geet. Nd you know something I am habitual of you taking care of me pls ignore everything that I said to you that tym pls” Maan said in a guilty voice while Geet just looked at him speechless.

 

Did she heard it correct? Did he really said that he’s habitual of her taking care of him? Dis is for the first tym wen he had confessed something like this in their relationship. Is he saying all this so that she won’t feel bad or did he really meant it? She looked at his eyes to search her answers nd all she could see in dem is genuine care for her.

 

Please you don’t say sorry I don’t feel good wen you say sorry like dis. nd anyways u said na that we are friends so dere’s no sorry nd Thank you between friends” She said nd Maan chuckled at her effort to make him feel better but before he could say anything they heard Madhu’s footsteps nd dey instantly parted a bit away from each other.

 

“Arey Maan Geet u both are done wid your breakfast” Madhu said as she makes her way towards dem.

 

“Ya Maa thank you so much for such a tasty breakfast. It really feel so gud” Maan said as he looked at Geet wid the last sentence nd Geet understood wat he was trying to say.

 

“Acha Maa I am taking your leave now. Had to reach office. Give my regards to Papa”

 

“Sure Maan. Geet accompany Maan till door.” Madhu nudged Geet as she saw Maan moving away. Geet just nodded nd follow Maan till door. They both had reached till door wen Maan suddenly stopped nd looked at Geet

 

“Waise Geet from tomorrow Inspite of calling Annie for arranging my clothes nd all if u’ll call me then it would be much better. I’ll feel gud. Take care of urself” Maan said as he smirked nd left leaving Geet behind awestruck.

 

By the tym she could register wat Maan had said he had already left. Geet blushed as she realized wat Maan had asked her to do. He had actually asked her to call him directly for telling him wat clothes he had to wear. That means he really wants her to take care of him nd that means he didn’t mind all dis. her happiness knew no bounds as she found herself falling again nd again for her husband. Yes there’s no denying in that she’s falling for Maan Inspite of knowing that her feelings can never be reciprocated yet she cant stop herself from feeling for him.

 

******************************************************

 

Days passed by nd Geet stayed at her home only taking care of Arnav but she never failed to take care of Maan too in the amidst of it. Only difference is that now she use to call Maan directly Inspite of calling Annie. Maan too feels gud talking to her. The first thing that he heard I the morning is her voice wen she calls him to tell her which clothes he had to wear. Though he still find dis nd dat fault in coffee nd breakfast made by Nakul but by now everyone knows what’s the reason behind the irking of Maan.

 

Geet made sure that he had his Breakfast, Lunch nd Dinner properly as knowing him she knows that once he’ll get engrossed in work he forgets the world around him. Usually Maan takes his dinner at Geet’s place only as he came to meet Arnav. Arnav’s condition is getting better day by day thanx to the extreme care by Geet. Madhu notices the change in their relationship wenever Maan come to their home. She also knows that Arnav was just an excuse for Maan nd the actual reason is that Maan is missing Geet but as usual she was just a mute spectator of all dese as she herself was not sure whether she was thinking right or wrong.

 

And Madhu’s speculation was not wrong as Maan was really missing Geet. Though Geet use to call him time to time to ask about him. Infact many times Geet comes to office too bringing his lunch nd dey had it together much to Maan’s protest yet wen he reaches he found something missing from his room. Her being not there in the room has made it lifeless as if very important essence is missing from the room. His room was never the same like it was wen Geet was here. it seems that his room had gone habitual of her too just like him. Though realization was yet to dawn upon him but for one thing he was sure that he really misses watching Geet sleeping or her arranging his clothes or her bringing his coffee but he can’t do anything. Derefore most of the tym he use to visit Geet’s home on the pretext of seeing Arnav nd dere he was delighted to see Geet’s happy face seeing him.

 

Yes it was not less den a treat for Geet to see him almost every other day. Their most of the dinners, lunches nd sometimes even breakfast is been together. Slowly nd slowly the awkwardness in their relationship was going away as they are getting comfortable in each other’s company nd Geet was happy to see that. But this thing she always keeps in her mind that there is a limit in their relationship which no one can ever pass but for now she was happy the way it is going.

 

**************************************************************

 

Like dis another 20 days have been passed with both missing each other. It was one such day wen Maan reached KM late at night. He had a meeting scheduled up nd by the tym he got free from it was very late therefore he directly went to KM instead of going to Geet’s place first. He thought of calling Geet first as he wasn’t able to see her whole day but then after looking at tym he dropped the idea as it was really very late nd he don’t want to disturb Geet at this hour as she must be really tired.

 

Keeping this thing in mind wen he entered his room he found an unknown contentment over dere as if the thing that has been missing from dere has been back at its place. It was strange to feel something like this but he just can’t ignore the sense of contentment that he was having right now. It seems that its lyf has been back. Strangely he could feel Geet’s presence in the room but he knows that it’s not true as Geet is not here. Thinking this he changed into his trousers nd vest nd went to sleep on couch. Yes it was his habbit now to sleep on couch even if Geet is not here.

 

Next morning as usual he got up at his usual tym nd went to gym for his workout. Wen he came back he found his coffee ready on the table exactly the way Geet places while all the files that has been scattered on the table nd bed has been nicely put in rack. Once again his mind went to Geet as it was she only who arranges things like this but then how can it be possible. Probably Nakul had done all this, he thought as he sipped his coffee nd to his surprise today coffee was perfect just like the way he use to have, just like the way Geet makes.

 

“Geet” he muttered as he once again felt her presence around him but then thinking it to be a part of his imagination he just shrug it off. Guess today he was missing her so much, he thought as he made his way to washroom to take shower leaving all his thoughts beside. But to his dismay he could feel her essence, her aroma in the washroom too. Wat the hell is wrong wid him, he thought as he pushed his hairs back. Y is he having this feeling today that Geet was here. Something had definitely went wrong wid him today, he thought as he takes his shower.

 

After a while wen he came out from washroom he found all his clothes nicely placed on bed just like the way Geet do. But Geet is not here then who had done all this, he thought as he saw the clothes. Probably Annie had done this but hw can it be possible wen he himself told her that she should call him for all these nd she use to do the same too from past 20 days den y not today. He immediately checked his cell thinking that might be she had call him nd he was not able to attend it so she had called Annie but there was no miss call from Geet.

 

He couldn’t ignore the feeling that was again nd again developing in him that Geet is here nd she had done all this but again it was not possible. Probably he was thinking about her too much. May be it was Annie only who had arranged his clothes. He thought of asking the reason to Geet later wen he’ll meet her, he thought as he gets ready for the office nd went downstairs for the breakfast looking back at his room once again.

 

*********************************************************

 

Wen Maan went downstairs he saw everyone was present over dere waiting for him. NT was not there as she had gone to her mother’s place. Vicky nd Annie were whispering something among demselves nd laughed but instantly stopped wen dey both saw him. Even Dadimaa was trying her best to maintain straight face but Maan could see that she was trying her best to suppress her laugh. Maan just shakes his head in disbelief seeing the weird behaviour of his family. God knows wat this today has in it that everything is been so strange.

 

“Good morning everyone” he greeted as he took his seat.

 

“Good Morning Bhai! Waise bhi today the morning will be good only.” Vicky said nd Annie immediately hits at his foot hard wid hers

 

“Wat Do you mean?” Maan asked while knotting his brows

 

“Wo Bhai he means that he had seen the astrology program today nd it has been forecasted that today is a good day for everyone. Right Vicky?” Annie said while giving Vicky a glare while Dev just chuckled.

 

“Ya Bhai she’s right. I had seen it in astrology program only” Vicky immediately said as he realizes wat he said earlier

 

“I don’t believe this that you guys believe in all that crap” Maan said unbelievingly.

 

“Just wait for sometym Bhai u’ll also start believing” Vicky muttered under his breath

 

“Anyways Nakul Bring my breakfast.” He called out nd Annie, Dev, Vicky nd Dadimaa gives each other a meaningful glance.

 

He was reading the newspaper wen he felt someone giving the bowl. He looked at the person nd den back to the newspaper nd den once again back at the person who was giving him the bowl. His eyes went wide as he saw who was giving him the bowl. It was none other den Geet who was standing wid the bowl wid a smile on her face. For few moments he couldn’t fathom whether it was real or he was hallucinating again. He looked at her for few moments nd den again look back at his newspaper smiling while shaking his head. He had definitely gone insane today. He was again hallucinating her but this tym he wont give his family another chance to tease him.

 

“Maan Bete, wat kind of behaviour is dis. Geet was standing here from so long wid the bowl of ur Pasta nd u are not giving a second glance to it” Savitri Devi said in a stern voice as she saw Maan’s behaviour

 

“Geet? She’s really here?” Maan thought as he looked back at Geet once again who was standing over dere wid confused face. All the events since the last night replayed in his mind nd he realized that she’s actually here. Thatsy he was feeling her presence in the room; thatsy everything was arranged just like the way Geet use to do. it was not at all his imagination she was actually dere.

 

“Geet you are really here?” Maan asked out of blue nd Vicky nd Annie burst out laughing

 

“Y Bhai? Are you thinking that you are hallucinating again” Vicky said only to get a glare from Maan while Geet just blushed hearing Vicky. She just serves his breakfast quietly nd den went back to take her seat.

 

“Dadimaa wen did Geet came? I mean I haven’t saw her coming.” Maan asked not getting head nd tail of anything.

 

“Beta Geet came last evening only but you were not at home nd wen you returned it was very late nd everyone has retired to bed. Annie wanted to talk something important to Geet so she has stayed at her room only last night nd in the morning wen she came back you had already left for gym nd rest you yourself can comprehend. Thatsy you both were not able to see each other.” Dadimaa explained him everything nd he realized y he was feeling her presence since last night

 

“Waise Maan Bhai hw was ur Coffee nd Breakfast today? I hope it’s perfect today because wo kya hai na from last few days you were finding dis nd dat fault in the coffee nd the breakfast” Annie teased Maan as he took the bite of his pasta

 

“Annie!!” Maan said in a stern Voice as he saw Annie teasing him in front of Geet

 

“Wat? Did I said anything wrong? Dadimaa you tell did I said anything wrong? Isn’t it Maan Bhai had always finds this or that fault in Nakul’s coffee or breakfast wen Geet was not here” Annie said innocently nd Geet heart just did a summersault hearing that Maan liked her food or coffee. She looked at Maan who was busy having his Pasta not daring to look at her

 

“Ok Annie enough of teasing now. Let him have his breakfast peacefully. Waise Maan Beta even I am curious to know how is the breakfast today?” Dadimaa said nd winked at Annie

 

“Dadimaa!!” Maan said not believing that his own Dadimaa is teasing him. Everyone laughed at table as they continued having their breakfast pulling legs of each other.

 

*******************************************************

 

Another few days passed by nd it’s been almost 5 months now since Maan nd Geet are married. Dere Relationship had definitely showed a progress. Geet was again started getting Comfortable wid Maan nd wid that this fact was also getting stronger in her heart that Maan had taken a special place in her heart. Unwillingly she was falling for him. Though she knows that it’s not right but she was helpless in front of her heart that always do summersault wenever Maan is around her. His simple touch always gives Goosebumps in her body. His simple care was just drawing her towards him like there was a magnetic pull. But yet she didn’t had courage to tell this to Maan because she knows that her feelings can never be reciprocated nd last thing she wants is Maan’s indifference towards her so its better if she keeps her feelings to herself only.

 

It was one fine day wen she noticed that everyone at KM was busy in doing some kind of preparations. It was Sunday so Maan nd Dev were at home too. She saw Maan giving necessary instructions to Nakul to get ready Guest room but before she could ask something to him Dadimaa called her nd she left for kitchen

 

“Dadimaa, y dere is so much hustle nd bustle in home? Is today is something special” Geet asked as she saw Dadimaa in the kitchen giving instructions to servant

 

“Arey Geet Beta thank god you came. I need your help in cooking” Dadimaa said as she noticed Geet in kitchen

 

“I’ll Dadimaa but wats so special today?” Geet asked not understanding anything

 

“Because today someone special is coming.” Dadimaa said while stirring Kheer

 

“Who?”

 

“Someone who is very close to Maan.” Dadimaa replied still not disclosing the name.

 

“Dadimaa stop playing riddles na. Tell me who’s coming” Geet asked while pouting

 

“Ok now if u’ll make such a cute face den how couldn’t I tell you? Wo actually…” Before Dadimaa could say anything they heard Maan’s voice from outside

 

“Guess he’s here. Geet beta can u pls see this kheer. I am going outside nd ya you too come soon” Dadimaa said nd Geet just nodded. She patted her cheek affectionally nd left for outside.

 

*********************************************************

 

“Dadimaa, I missed you all a lot it’s been so long I had seen you all.” He said while touching her feet.

 

“We too missed you a lot Vidyut Beta. But now since you are here I’ll not let you go so soon.” Dadimaa said as she caress his hairs

 

“Don’t worry Dadimaa now I’ll not leave you all so soon. BTW where’s my Khadoos friend Maan.” Vidyut asked as he looked around himself

 

“I am right here Vidyut.” Maan said as he came at hall to see his best friend.

 

“Oh Maan! I missed you so much” He said as he hugged his best friend.

 

“I missed you too Yaar.” Maan said as he pulled back from hug.

 

“I am sorry yaar I was not there wen u needed me the most. This mission was just not letting me to come to you” Vidyut said feeling guilty

 

“Its ok Vidyut I understand. Being an Air Force officer you had lots of responsibilities.” Maan said understanding the reason of his absence

 

“I am really sorry about Sameera. If it was in my hands then I would have never let anything happen to her. But you know what I am happy that you had decided to move on in your lyf. Wen I came to know about your marriage I can’t tell you how happy I was seeing that you are trying to move on nd today I m seeing happiness on your face” Vidyut said while Maan just smiled thinking about Geet who never fails to make him happy. Her small-small gestures always bring lyf back at him.

 

“Now will you keep on smiling like this only or I will get a chance to meet my Bhabhi too.” Vidyut said breaking his trance.

 

“Vidyut she’s right here. See over dere” Dadimaa said gesturing behind Maan nd Maan turned to look at Geet giving velar view to Vidyut.

 

Vidyut was just rooted on the spot as he saw Geet over dere. No dis can’t be true. There’s definitely some misunderstanding, he thought as he saw Geet coming towards dem.

 

“Geet” he muttered as he saw her wid all the signs of marriage.

 

“Yes Beta. Geet is Maan’s wife” Dadimaa said clearing all his doubts nd Vidyut feels like floor slipping beneath his feet.

 

By the tym Geet approached towards dem nd wen she saw Person standing over dere her eyes widens in horror seeing him dere.

 

“Vidyut.” She said absent mindedly not believing that he’s really dere. She knows that one day she had to come face to face wid him but never knows that it would be like this.

 

“Yes Geet Vidyut. My best friend nd your gud friend. Nd Vidyut meet Geet your friend nd my wife.” Maan said as he goes near Geet. Vidyut looked at both of dem nd clenched his fist in order to control himself

 

Geet just looked at Maan nd gave him a faint smile nd den again looked back at Vidyut. She could clearly see that he was seething in anger. She really had no idea in which way will he take all this. She feared for this only. The storm from which she feared from so many months had finally entered in their lives nd she had no idea how she’ll survive herself nd her relation wid Maan nd him in this storm.

 

Vidyut just stood there dumbfounded not able to believe anything that was happening in front of his eyes. Geet, his Geet was married to someone else nd that someone else was none other den his own best friend; this fact was absolutely not digestible for him. He felt his whole world getting crashed in front of his own eyes nd he was not able to do anything. He looked at Maan nd den at Geet who was just standing over dere bewildered as if not expecting him to be there.

 

“What happen Vidyut? You seem to be very much surprised?” Maan voice brought him back from his thoughts nd he looked at Maan.

 

“Surprised? I am shocked Maan. Afterall I didn’t expected that ‘Geet’ will be you wife. Strange both of my friends had decided to give me the shock at the same tym” Vidyut said sarcastically nd Geet understands where exactly he’s hinting to.

 

“Yaar everything happened so fast that couldn’t able to inform you” Maan reasoned himself but Vidyut was just looking at Geet as if demanding his answers through his eyes.

 

“Ya ofcourse I understand Afterall getting married is not an easy task, Right Geet?” Vidyut said sarcastically nd the venom in his voice made Geet to shudder.

 

“Vidyut you must be tired after such a long journey why don’t you get freshen up. I’ll ask Nakul keep your luggage at your room” Maan said before Geet could reply anything to which Vidyut just nodded nd walked past Geet to go towards his room but not before giving her a accusing look nd Geet just dipped her head down not able to bear his accusations.

 

“It seems Vidyut is really very much shocked wid the news of our marriage.” Maan said to Dadimaa unknown of the storm going in Geet’s heart.

 

“He must be shocked Maan Afterall Geet was his gud friend too so it’s obvious of him to react like this.” Dadimaa explained to Maan nd he understand Vidyut’s reaction.

 

But none of dem knows the actual reason of Vidyut’s behaviour, except Geet. She was just stood dere motionless trying to register how her world turned upside down in just few mins. Just as she had started getting happy wid the change in her lyf nd her feelings for Maan dis old chapter of her lyf had opened in such an unexpected way nd she just don’t know how to get rid of this situation without harming anyone’s emotions.

 

“Geet beta can you please go nd see if Vidyut needs anything in the meantime I’ll look after the arrangements of lunch.” Dadimaa’s voice broke the reverie of her thoughts nd she shivered hearing wat Dadimaa had just asked her to do but she can’t deny it also so she just nodded slowly nd headed towards Vidyut’s room to face the storm waiting for her.

 

*********************************************************

 

Vidyut throws the contents placed on the dresser in frustration as the image of Maan wid Geet came in front of his eyes. This is not wat he wished for. He haven’t came back to see this. He was here to make Geet his forever nd all wat he got after coming back is only betrayal by the girl he loves the most. No matter how hard he tried he just can’t forget her beautiful face nd that lovely smile on it wen he saw her first tym in the Base. He didn’t know who she is or y is she here but he really liked her at the first sight nd soon he realizes that it was Love which he felt for her nd since den only he had always dreamt of being them together but today wen he saw all his dreams shattered so badly that too in front of his own eyes den he just cant able to take it.

 

He throws away the books that were lyieng on table as the image of Geet with all signs of marriage came in front of his eyes. He was just not able to bear it at any cost. The girl who he loved her so much, for whom he just counted days so that he can go back to her nd take her in his arms had just got married nd didn’t even feel it necessary to inform him. but what he didn’t understand is that wat had happened all of a sudden that Geet had to get married to Maan especially den wen everyone knows that Maan nd Sameera were madly in Love wid each other nd Maan can never see Geet in that way den wat could be the reason of their sudden marriage. It was not that he was not happy to see Maan moving on in his lyf, he was very much happy to see him moving on but he was moving on in his lyf wid his Geet was the thing that was disturbing him. He was lost in these thoughts wen he heard the knock on his door. He asked the person to come inside only to find Geet standing over dere with her head dipped low.

 

“Oh! Mrs. Khurana oh sorry sorry it should be Mrs. Geet Maan Singh Khurana. Wat makes you to come to my room?” Vidyut said sarcastically as he placed his clothes in the cupboard.

 

“Vidyut I…” she tried to say something only to be interrupted by him.

 

“It’s Captain Vidyut Singh Shekhawat for you Mrs. Geet Maan Singh Khurana” Vidyut spat it out in anger before Geet could say anything

 

“Vidyut pls meri baat to Suniye.” Geet tried once again to speak but all went in vain.

[Vidyut pls listen to me]

 

“Wat do you exactly wanted to say to me Mrs. Geet Khurana that how much happy you are in your married life. That how much u love your husband nd how he satisfy all your needs which probably I won’t be able to do. Dis is wat you wanted to say to me or you are here to apologize to me that you are not able to invite me in Ur marriage nd I am not able to see my world shattering in front of my own eyes.” He said with his voice full of venom making Geet shiver in fear

 

“Vidyut it’s not like that. I can explain everything to you. It was just…” Before Geet could complete herself Vidyut jerked her towards himself while holding her shoulders looking straight into her eyes with his which were spitting fire

 

“Wat exactly will you explain Geet? That how brutally u made a joke of my Love, my feelings by marrying my best friend. Didn’t you know that I Love you. Didn’t you know that I was just waiting day nd night impatiently for your one ‘yes’? Tell me Geet didn’t you know all this? Yet u had just get married to Maan.” he said furiously while increasing his grip on her shoulders.

 

“Oh! Y am I even asking all this to you wen I already know the answer. U married to Maan just because he was richer then me. Just because with him you can live a life of luxury which was impossible with an Air force officer. Just because he had money, power nd everything at his feet thatsy you choose him to marry. U didn’t even care for the relation which your sister nd Maan shared. Inspite of knowing that Maan was is nd will always be madly in Love wid Sameera you married him because basically all you want is just his money. Thatsy you married him right? Answer me Damn it! Thatsy u married him na” Vidyut said while shaking her hard hurting Geet wid his words.

 

“It’s not true. Wat you are thinking is all wrong. I didn’t marry him for his money. It was Di’s last wish. She wanted us to get married after her death. I had done all dis for her last wish. I tried to contact you to tell you about all this but just couldn’t able to reach you.” She managed to say between her tears trying him to explain the reason behind her marriage.

 

“Oh c’mon Geet just stop giving this lame excuses. Don’t try to hide your Greediness by taking your deceased Sister’s name. U didn’t even left Ur sister also for your greediness, the same sister who loved you like anything else. At that tym she wouldn’t have known that one day u’ll use her name like this to hide your own deed” Vidyut said in a disgusting voice while jerking her away. Geet nods her head in negative denying all his accusations

 

“So according to you whatever I am saying is wrong den can u pls care to give me the reason y would Sameera actually wanted you to get married to Maan after her death wen she knows that Maan can never give you the place that he had given her. He can never Love you the way he loved her.” Vidyut asked nd Geet just stood dere speechless not having any answers to his questions

 

“Don’t have any answers right? I knew it already. I can’t believe this Geet that you are the same Geet whom I fell in Love wid the first sight. Who had always put her relationships ahead of everything else. But thanx to you that my misconception about you has been cleared. Now I won’t get betrayed by your fake innocence. And remember one more thing Geet, Maan may not be able to see this ugly side of yours behind your innocence but the day he’ll see that side that day will be your last day in his lyf. Just remember that.” He said nd stormed off towards washroom leaving a stunned Geet behind. She stood dere for sometym trying to progress the words that Vidyut said in her mind nd den somehow turned to leave nd headed towards her room.

 

*******************************************************

 

It’s been 20 minutes since Geet had came to her room from Vidyut room but her mind was still not in peace. She sat on the couch while holding Sameera’s pic trying to absorb the things that happened in past 1 hour. Vidyut’s words were still ringing in her ears paining her even more. How easily he had accused her of using Sameera’s name to hide her greediness, how easily he had accused her that she had married Maan just because of his money wen she knows that its not true nd to tell dis only to him she had gone to his room but he had just blow her off wid his own accusations, the accusations which are totally baseless.

 

**********~~~~~~~~~Flashback~~~~~~~~~**********

 

She still remembers the day wen she had met Vidyut for the very first tym. She had gone to base to meet Sameera to tell her that she had won first prize in inter collegiate competition. Sameera was in some meeting so she was told to wait until she gets free. Since her Bade Papa was a retired Air force officer too most of the people over there knows her well nd that’s wen she first met Vidyut. Due to her outspoken she instantly befriends him. The first thing that came to Geet’s mind after seeing him is ‘Ranbir Kapoor’. His Personality, his way of speaking was exactly like Ranbir Kapoor. Later she came to know from Sameera that he’s really a very gud person from heart too.

 

So like this their friendship started. Though they didn’t met much wid each other but always remain in touch through Skype nd Facebook. She didn’t had even slightest idea by then that Vidyut had any feelings for her until the day he confessed it to her. it was same fateful dat wen Sameera had left for her mission for never to come back. she has gone to meet Sameera at base before she leaves nd there only Vidyut had confessed his Love to him wen Sameera was busy in talking to Maan privately.

 

“Geet, I need to tell you something important.” He said as soon as Sameera went out of their sight

 

“Yup Vidyut say it.” Geet said not knowing for the next shock of her lyf.

 

“Geet I don’t know how you will react to this but its really very important or me to tell you this. I was trying to tell you this from so long but Everytym I feared for your reaction but wen today I am leaving for this mission in which even I don’t know whether I’ll come back or not I realized that I cant keep it to myself anymore”

 

“y are you talking in so much riddles Vidyut. Pls say whatever you want to say.” She said waiting for him to say wat he wants but wat he said next had shocked her till core.

 

“Geet, I Love You.” He said nd Geet felt like ground slipping beneath her feet hearing wat he said.

 

Ya Geet I really love you a Lot since the day I saw you but was not able to say it to you. I won’t be able to say it to you even today also if this mission won’t come in way” Vidyut said while looking into her eyes trying to know her answer but Geet was too shocked to react at that moment.

 

“Vidyut this… I mean… I don’t know… I mean I haven’t thought about this” Geet managed to say somehow while still in the state of shock.

 

“See don’t get me wrong but I had always liked you as a friend. I had never looked at you in that way” Geet said as she noticed the frown face of Vidyut.

 

“It’s ok Geet. Take your tym. I am not in hurry for your answer. U’ll get ample of tym to think about it wen I was away for my mission nd I am sure wen I’ll come back your answer will be ‘yes’ only nd I can wait forever for that ‘yes’.” That was the last words he had said before leaving from dere to meet the officials nd den later left for his mission leaving a dazed Geet behind.

 

******~~~~~~~~~Back to Present~~~~~~~~~~******

 

And after that day it was today wen she had saw him but everything has changed till den. She knows he was right at his place. Anyone would have react like this seeing the love of his lyf getting married to someone like this. After he left for his mission she had thought a lot about it. had spend so many sleepless nights to think about the answer but no matter how much she tried her heart was just not ready to say yes to him. He had everything in him that she had dreamt for her prince charming yet she couldn’t bring it in her to Love him. Y? The reason was herself unknown to her. nd den the news of Sameera’s plane crash came nd den everything changed nd her lyf was no exception nd here she was married to Maan which according to Vidyut she had done for the sake of money.

 

But now if she give it a thought she had never felt the way wen Vidyut was around her like the way she feels wen Maan is around her. Vidyut’s touch never gave her goosebumps like Maan’s touch did. Vidyut care for her or not didn’t matter like the way it matters in the case of Maan. She had never shared her fear to loose someone close to her heart to Vidyut like she had shared wid Maan that way. Her body never reacted the way wid Vidyut’s closeness or words like it did wid Maan’s. Inspite of having every quality that she wants in her prince charming in Vidyut she was never able to bring up to Love him nd Maan who is totally opposite to the prince charming she had dreamt of she can’t stop herself from falling for him. Her heartbeat never raised wen she was Vidyut like it did wod Maan. No doubt she use to like Vidyut but as a friend she had never loved him but Maan she loves him.

 

“WAT????? I love him. I Love Maan” she thought as she snapped open her eyes nd looked at Sameera’s pic which was dere in her hand.

 

Wat the hell did she just thought? Yes its true that she’s getting drawn towards him but how’s that possible that she loves him. This thing was not suppose to happen in their relationship especially den wen she knows that her feelings can never be reciprocated den how can she fall in Love wid him. She thought as she looked at Sameera’s pic once again to seek her answers

 

“Stupid, it’s not at all planned ok. Love just happens nd it won’t ask Ur permission. U urself won’t realize wen u’ll fall in Love nd den all ur ideologies nd logics will go in vain.” Sameera’s word rang in her mind that she told her wen she asked how come she’s doing Love marriage wid Maan wen she always wanted Arranged marriage as if giving her all answers

 

“Di was right. It just happened. It didn’t ask my permission, it didn’t care for the qualities I wanted for my Prince charming. Inspite of being Maan poles apart from the Prince charming I dreamt of I fall in Love wid him. All my ideologies nd Logics went in vain. But is it right? Can I feel for him in dis way inspite of knowing that he’ll never love me? Should I tell Maan about wat I feel for him but wat if he didn’t liked it? Should I tell him about Vidyut but wat if he didn’t trust me enough to understand anything? Babaji pls show me some way. Tell me wat should I do now.” She thought as she closed her eyes nd leaned back on couch holding Sameera’s pic in her hand. The reason for her tension due to Vidyut had long back forgotten from her mind wen she realized her feelings for Maan. All wats dere in her mind now is how Maan will react wen she’ll tell him about her new found feelings.

 

She was lost in these thoughts wen she felt a tap on her shoulders. She instantly opened her eyes wen she recognized the touch. She don’t have to turn back to see who it was. Even wid her close eyes she cam say that it was none other den Maan. and she was right also as wen she turned back she found Maan standing over dere wid concern written all over his face

 

“Maan” she whispered while smiling as she found him standing in front of her

 

“Yes Geet it’s me only. But what happened to you?” Maan asked in concern nd Geet realized that she’s not dreaming. He’s actually here

 

“Geet are you feeling fine? If you are not feeling well then we can go to some doctor.” Maan said as he took a seat beside her nd touches her forehead to ensure that she’s not having temperature nd as usual Geet felt thousand butterflies running in her stomach wid his simple touch.

 

“I am fine.” She managed to say somehow due to his proximity which had started affecting her more now.

 

“But you are not looking fine Geet. Is everything ok? Are you tensed on something? He asked as he noticed her tear stricken face nd red swollen eyes indicating that she was crying nd dats wen Geet realize that she was crying till now.

 

“No it’s not like that. I am perfectly fine.” Geet said while looking away knowing that she won’t be able to lie to him while looking into his eyes not now especially.

 

She was trying to think of some reason only wen she felt Maan turning her towards him while holding her shoulders nd den cupping her face. She was thrilled wid dis sudden act of his nd den she felt him wiping away her tears which still lingered at the corner of her eyes. She looked seep into his eyes only to find immense care nd concern for her. She was searching for Love too but probably wat she was searching is not possible in this birth atleast.

 

“Did anyone told you that you are a horrible liar?” Maan’s voice brought her back from her thoughts nd she looked at him in confusion.

 

“U know something your eyes are the mirror of your heart. Dey always say when you are lyieng nd wen you are not. Nd now they are saying loud nd clear that you are lyieng to me” Maan said as he showed the drop of her tear on his fingertip.

 

“Wat happen Geet? Is something bothering you? I told you before also that u don’t have to hesitate for telling me anything that’s dere in your heart. Tell me what’s bothering you” he asked as he made her look into his eyes nd Geet found it difficult to hide him about Vidyut.

 

“i dont know wat happened to me? y it happens to me? all i know is that i Love you Maan” she thought in her mind fearing to voice out her feelings

 

“Are you missing Sameera?’ Maan said before Geet could say anything nd dats wen Geet realizes that he had noticed the pic in her hands.

 

“Ya wo actually…” Geet fumbled wid her words nd Maan understands her uneasiness.

 

“Geet I can understand your condition as we both are sailing on same boat. I know no one can fill the void of Sameera in both of ours lives but I just wanted to say that inspite of crying in her memory we should smile remembering her. Sameera can never bear seeing us in tears. it would hurt her thatsy she asked us to marry each other so that we both can handle each other wenever we both can broke down. Sameera may not be here wid us but she’s always present in our hearts. And Geet remember one thing always that no matter wat I am always here for you. Wenever you feel that something is bothering you then you are free to discuss that thing wid me instead of fearing how will I react to that. You understand wat I am saying?” Maan said wid his voice laced wid concern nd care unaware of the fact that how deeply his words are affecting Geet in her heart. She felt herself falling more in Love wid him. It gives her courage to tell him everything about Vidyut nd get rid from this burden

 

“Maan I want to say something to you.” She said after a long tym gathering enough courage to say wat she was going to say now.

 

“Do you need permission for that Geet? Just say it.” Maan said wid a smile on his face giving her courage to speak further

 

“Maan wo Vid…” She was about to say something wen they both were interrupted by some voice at the door.

 

“Geet” Savera said before Geet could say anything further. Both Maan nd Geet looked at the door only to find Savera standing over dere wid confused expression.

 

“Savy? Wat a pleasant surprise?” Maan said as he gets up from the couch

 

“Hi Jiju! Hi Geet!” Savy greeted as she came inside.

 

“Hi Savy! How’s u doing?”

 

“Fine Jiju! Hws u?”

 

“I am fine too. Ok I guess you both wanted to catch up wid lots of things so I should give some privacy to you both. Geet, I am going downstairs u also come soon for Lunch nd ya don’t stress urself much for anything, hhmmm.” Maan said nd Geet nodded her head in understanding nd Maan left from dere leaving Geet nd Savera alone.

 

“Geet, Wat I am listening Vidyut is back?” Savera asked as soon as Maan went out of sight to which Geet just nodded her head in yes.

 

“O God! Wen Vicky told me about his arrival I didn’t believed him for once but seeing Ur pale face I am sure that Ur confrontation wid him was not fine. Tell me did anything happen? Did he said something to you?” Savera asked nd Geet hugged her tight nd cried bitterly while narrating her whole conversation of hers wid Vidyut.

 

“Savy u know Na that I didn’t marry Maan for his money. U know Na that it was Di’s last wish. u know na that I was never able to Love Vidyut back even knowing that he had all the qualities of my prince charming. Tell me Na Savy u believe me Na.” Geet said as she shook Savera shocking her wid her break down.

 

“Geet, Geet Relax I believe you. I know you are not wrong. Just relax.” Savy said while calming her down

 

“Geet, don’t pay heed to whatever he said. its not that u had ever loved him so dont care for watever he said to you nd Hw dare he say something cheap like that to you? At one side he claims that he loves you nd on the other hand he puts such cheap allegations on you. Disgusting.” Savera said while making a disgusting face.

 

“I Love him Savy” Geet blurted out of blue shocking Savera

 

“Wat? Don’t tell me that u love Vid’.” She couldn’t complete herself wen Geet interrupted.

 

“No I don’t love Vidyut I Love Maan. I had fallen in Love wid Maan” she said before Savy could complete herself giving her another shock.

 

“Geet, are you saying true” Savera asked not believing her ears to which Geet just nodded.

 

“Wen?”

 

“I don’t know all I know that I Love him nd now I am going to tell him everything about Vidyut.” Geet said determinedly nd turned to move outside wen Savy stopped him while holding her arms

 

“Are you Mad Geet? You are going to tell Jiju about Vidyut. Do you had any idea wat will be the outcome of this?” Savy said s she stopped her from going.

 

“I don’t care for the outcome Savy but I can’t hide this from him. Savy I Love him nd the first essence of Love is trust nd I cant break his trust while hiding this fact from him.” Geet said as she again turned to leave only to be stopped by Savy

 

“Geet, Listen to me I understand whatever you are saying but think wat will happen after this? Jiju nd Vidyut are best friends nd dis truth of yours can affect their friendship also. May be to defend himself or in order to get back his Love he can say or do something which can create misunderstanding between you too. We’ll do one thing; we’ll talk to Vidyut about this.” Savy said as she tried to make Geet understand her point

 

“Savy he’s not even ready to listen to me nd accusing me for the things that I can never think of committing. Y would he listen to me?” Geet said helplessly

 

“Geet, I understand your point but just think in this way that may be after seeing you all married after so long he was just not able to control his anger nd betrayal got in Love because he expected a yes from you nd wen u got married to someone else then he was not able to take it so easily. We’ll talk to him once again wen he was in a calm mind nd may be den he’ll understand. But Geet for now don’t spoil everything by telling dis to Maan Jiju.” Savy said as she made Geet sat on the couch nd kneeled down in front of her.

 

“Will it be right Savy?” Geet asked in doubt.

 

“It would be right for now Geet. You Love Maan Jiju right?” Savy said nd Geet nodded her head in positive.

 

“Den just be quiet for now nd wait till the things get back to normal nd den you tell everything to Jiju. About Vidyut also nd about your feelings for him too” Savy said nd Geet immediately shakes her head.

 

“no Savy I cant tell Maan that I Love him.” Geet said immediately making Savy frown

 

“But y Geet? He had right to know how u feel for him.”

 

“I know Savy but u also know that he had is nd will only love Di. He can never reciprocate my feelings. I don’t fear for his rejection, I fear for his indifference; I fear for the distance that would be there between us wen he’ll come to know about my feelings. No I cant afford it. I am happy the way our relationship is going atleast like this way he’s near me. like this way he talks to me, listens to me, cares for me I don’t want to lose all dis Savy. Please I’ll never tell him that I Love him.” Geet said nd Savy understands her fear.

 

“Geet, I wont force you for anything but all I want to say is give one chance to your life. Don’t keep your feelings in your heart due to fear of losing Jiju. Who knows that Jiju respects your feeling nd can think of moving on in a lyf wid you” Savy try to make him understand but Geet was stick to her point.

 

“Fine just take sometym nd den decide ok. Chalo abhi lets go downstairs everyone must be waiting for us. Nd ya I don’t have to remind you that I am always dere for you.” Savera said making Geet smile widely nd she left downstairs wid her to join everyone for Lunch especially her Maan. She blushed at the thought ‘Her Maan’ which didn’t go unnoticed by Savy but she said nothing as finally her best friend is getting her happiness back in her lyf. She prayed to god for her happiness to be permanent nd made her way downstairs for Lunch.

 

When Geet nd Savera reached downstairs they saw that everyone was already present over dere. Savy noticed that only two seats are left. One is between Vicky nd Maan nd the other one is right beside Vidyut. Though Vicky has gestured Savy to sit beside him but seeing the gravity of situation she immediately sat beside Vidyut so that Geet can sit beside Maan. She knows that Vicky must be disappointed due to this but she’ll handle him later on. Right now she needs to keep Geet away from Vidyut as much as she can because she knows that Vidyut will leave no chance to taunt her or to hurt her. So without wasting a minute she just sat beside Vidyut signaling Geet to sit beside Maan.

 

Geet felt like thousand butterflies running in her stomach wen she sat beside Maan. Though it was not the first tym that she was going to sit beside him but now after realizing her feelings for him she really feels nervous around him just like a Love sick teenager. She really don’t want to sit beside Maan right now as she knows that she’ll definitely do something stupid but seeing no choice wid her she had to sit beside him. She just prayed to her Babaji that Maan won’t listen to the raising heartbeats of her heart which was thudding so loudly being him so near to her

 

“Geet, why are you not eating anything? Are you feeling fine?” Maan asked as he noticed Geet lost somewhere playing wid her food.

 

“Huh… Nothing I am fine.” Geet said as Maan’s voice broke the trail of her thoughts.

 

“No Geet, you are not looking fine. Do you have temperature?” Maan asked while keeping his hand on her forehead nd cheek to make sure that she’s not having temperature unknown of the sensation he was creating in Geet’s body with his simple touch.

 

“Maan I am fine. Don’t worry.” She said softly as she felt shiver down her spine due to his touch.

 

“Are you sure?” Maan asked still not convinced.

 

“Yes m sure. Don’t worry.” Geet said while smiling sweetly nd Maan sighed in relief nd resumed having his Lunch.

 

Everyone on the table were happy seeing Maan caring so much for Geet especially Dadimaa nd Savy. Though Savy was worried few minutes before wen Geet decided not to tell Maan about her feelings for him but seeing the care nd concern of Maan towards Geet she felt relieved as she was sure now that somewhere Maan too feels something for her but realization was yet to drawn upon him nd she was sure that soon he too will realize his feelings for Geet.

 

But there was one person who did not like all this nd that was Vidyut. He did really not like the way Maan was taking care of Geet which according to him was his right wen Maan touched Geet’s forehead nd cheeks to check the temperature he felt like blood boiling in his veins. All he wanted to that tym is to scream nd shout that only he had the right to touch Geet but was helpless nd den he was sure he saw Geet blushing wen she told Maan that she was fine. She never reacted in this way wen he touched her infact she never let him touch him ever nd if he touches her also though friendly by any chance den she immediately backed away feeling uncomfortable but wid Maan the way she reacted was like she was liking his touch nd dis was unbearable to him yet he was trying his best to control himself.

 

“Geet, Please Pass me the bowl of Rice.” Maan’s voice broke the trail of his thoughts nd he looked at Geet who was again lost somewhere.

 

“Geet, Geet are you listening?” Maan asked yet again while shrugging her shoulder bringing Geet back from her reverie.

 

“Ya I am listening. Sorry wo I was just thinking something.” She said nd quickly passed him the bowl of curry in order to hide her embarrassment while everyone looked at her in shock.

 

“Geet, wat is this?” Maan asked as he looked at the bowl of curry in his hand.

 

“Curry. You asked for it right?” Geet asked confusingly nd Savera slapped her forehead in disbelief.

 

“She’s definitely going to make a fool of herself if she behaves like dis with Jiju around.” She thought knowing how nave her best friend is wen it comes to hide her feelings.

 

“Geet, I had asked for rice not curry.” Maan said as he realizes that Geet had not paid attention on wat he had said.

 

“Oh I am so sorry here it is.” Geet said as she quickly takes the bowl of curry from his hand nd handling him the bowl of rice. But while handling him the bowl she accidently hits the glass of water in hurry to hide her embarrassment spilling water on Maan’s jeans.

 

“OMG! I am so sorry. I’ll just clean this up.” she said as she brushes her hand over his jeans to wipe away the water while everyone on the table muffles away her laughter.

 

“Geet, Geet its fine. Don’t worry.” Maan said while holding her hand as it brushes slightly over his manhood along wid thighs she was not aware of wat feelings she was arousing in him wid her innocent touch.

 

“But Wo…” Geet tried to protest only to be interrupted by him again.

 

“Geet, I said na its fine. Don’t worry for that. I’ll just go nd change. But I think you are really not feeling fine. I think you should take some rest. Come, I’ll take you to the room.” Maan said while getting up from chair.

 

“No I am fine. Trust me”

 

“Geet no more arguments now because I am not going to listen it. Nakul, bring mine nd Geet’s lunch in the room itself. Dadimaa is it okay with you.” Maan said paying no heed to Geet’s arguments.

 

“Ofcourse not Maan Bete. Geet, Maan is right. You should take some rest. Maan you take her to the room. I’ll ask Nakul to bring both of urs lunch over dere only.” Dadimaa said nd Geet sighed knowing that now she has to do wat Maan has said. Having no other option she quietly went away wid Maan to their room leaving everyone behind smile on their faces.

 

“Aww! They both look so adorable together.” Annie said as she made a dreamy look.

 

“Ya I know. See how much Maan Bhai was taking care of Geet Bhabhi. They were just perfect for each other.” Vicky said non chalantly unknown of the amount of Rage he was increasing in Vidyut. Already the sight of Maan nd Geet together was unbearable to him nd now he had to listen all these remarks also for them. It was getting difficult for him to sit over dere peacefully as everyone was just praising their togetherness nd care for each other.

 

“Arey Vidyut Bhai where are you going?” Annie asked as she saw Vidyut getting up from his seat.

 

“wo I am done wid my Lunch so I am going to my room feeling a bit tired.” Vidyut said but Savera knows y is he leaving all of a sudden. He is not able to bear seeing Maan nd Geet together nd anyways its good only if he realizes by himself that he had no place in Geet’s heart nd quietly went away from her lyf, she thought as she continued having her lunch seeing Vidyut’s retreating figure.

 

*****************************************************************

 

Later that night Geet got up from bed feeling bored due to resting for whole day. Whole day Maan had not let her stepped out from the room since the tym they both came in their room. After making sure she had her lunch he had securely tucked her in the spread nd haven’t left her side until she slept. Nd then wen she woke up in the evening she saw him sitting on the couch engrossed in his laptop. She very quietly got up from the bed nd tip toed towards the door making sure that he didn’t notice her but boy was she wrong. She had hardly reached towards the door wen she heard his voice

 

“Don’t even dare to step outside the door nd go back to Bed.” His voice made her stop dead in her tracks. She immediately turned to face him only to find him still looking at the laptop

 

“How do you know that I was going outside?” Geet asked standing over dere perplexed.

 

“That’s not important Geet. Now stop questioning nd go back to Bed.” He said in authoratively

 

“But I am fine now nd moreover I am feeling bored too. Pls let me go I promise I won’t do any work. I’ll just chat with Annie.” Geet said while making a baby face thinking that Maan would melt but she didn’t know that her husband had soln. of every excuses made by her.

 

“Annie is not at home. She nd Savera had gone out for shopping wid Vicky. NT had gone to meet one of her friend. Dev is at office nd Dadimaa has gone to attend some cultural function nd Vidyut is resting in his room so basically there is no one at home wid whom you can chat. So now stop arguing nd go back to bed nd take rest” Maan said while still not raising her head up

 

“But…” she couldn’t complete herself as she saw Maan’s warning gaze enough for her to shut her mouth. She pouted nd goes back to bed mentally cursing herself for her stupidity during Lunch due to which she was awarded with this useless rest.

 

**********************************************

 

“But I am getting bored now” she said out loud as she got up from the bed after thinking wat happened since noon till now.

 

“Geet, tu bhi na ekdum stupid hai. Kya zarurat thi dining table pe Maan ke saamne itni stupidity karne ki. Ab bekaar me hi itna rest karna pad raha hai. But what can I do whenever he’s around my heart is not in my control. But den also u should control Ur feelings around him or else he’ll come to know. From now onwards control Ur erratic heartbeats in front of him atleast. But where is Maan? He is not here in the room. Wen I had gone back to sleep den he was over here only. May be he has gone outside for some meeting. I’ll do one thing, I’ll just go to study nd read some books nd den come back to room before Maan can come. Haina Haan.” She thought nd den slowly stepped out of room to go towards study.

 

[Geet, you are a big stupid. What’s the need to do such stupidity on the table in front of Maan? Now I have to take rest unnecessarily. But what can I do whenever he’s around my heart is not in my control. But den also u should control Ur feelings around him or else he’ll come to know. From now onwards control Ur erratic heartbeats in front of him atleast. But where is Maan? He is not here in the room. Wen I had gone back to sleep den he was over here only.  May be he has gone outside for some meeting. I’ll do one thing, I’ll just go to study nd read some books nd den come back to room before Maan can come. Haina Haan.]

 

***********************************************************

 

On the other hand Maan was in his study working on his laptop for the presentation next day but his mind was all lost in Geet. He didn’t understand wats wrong wid Geet since morning. She was so upset wen he talked to her at their room nd den her clumsiness at the dining table. As far as he knows Geet she was not the girl who could do such clumsiness. Ya its true that she often speaks without thinking nd in turn it becomes just another stupidity of hers, he smiled as this thought cross his mind as he remembered their first meeting. But the way she was behaving today was really a matter of his concern.

 

Maan’s Monologue:

I finally closed my laptop as i was unable to concentrate on the presentation. It’s strange that Maan Singh Khurana who never gets distracted is now getting distracted just wid the thought of his wife. I thought of the change that our relationship had seen in dese 5 months. There was so much awkwardness between us wen we both got married though we were gud friends before this marriage but due to this sudden change in our relationship this awkwardness had made its place between us but den slowly nd gradually our relation did changed nd now they we are very much comfortable wid each other

 

Geet’s innocence, her care, her down to earth nature is bringing lyf back to me which seems to be lost somewhere after Sameera’s death. But now a days there is something else also that I am feeling towards Geet apart from respect that I had for our relationship. Geet’s every acts affect my lyf. Wenever she smiles due to me I feel like my lyf is worth. I can’t see her in pain or in tears be it for whatsoever reason. When Papa was admitted in hospital fighting between his life and death only I know how hard it was for me to be strong for Geet who had just broke down. Her tears were piercing my heart; why, I don’t know that.

 

I had become so much habitual of her that it seems to be impossible now to move a step ahead without her. Wen she was away for almost whole month it seems that my lyf has stopped somewhere. Though she always made sure that I don’t face any problem yet her presence seems to be important for me. May be thatsy I use to go to meet Geet at her home on the pretext of meeting Papa. What’s wrong wid me? I was not like this especially in our relationship where I know that all this can just give her false hopes yet I can’t stop myself from doing all dis.

 

Today wen I saw her in tears wid Sameera’s pic I just wanted to engulf her in my arms nd take away all her pains. I know what I am thinking was all wrong yet it seems all perfect. I can’t see her in any trouble thatsy I had made sure that Geet took proper rest inspite of all her protest nd I didn’t moved also until I was sure that she had fallen in deep sleep. I know whether I wanted to accept it or not but its true that something is really changing in my heart towards Geet. No matter how much I try to deny it but I can’t ignore the attraction that I am feeling for Geet. But I had to stop myself because I know that all Geet can feel for me is just respect nd nothing else. I just can’t make things difficult for her due to this unknown feeling but then y its being difficult for me to stop myself.

 

I know it’s wrong. I can’t feel for her in that way especially den wen I know where all dis can lead to. Then why my heart is not in my control. Why her tears give me dis much pain? Why her one smile makes my day? Why I always wanted to be her side wen she’s in any kind of trouble? Is it just an attraction that I am feeling due to our relationship or something else which I am not able to realize yet?

 

(Maan’s Monologue ends)

 

Maan’s trail of thoughts has been broken wen he heard some sound from outside the study. He instantly recognizes it as a sound of Geet’s anklet nd very well know that it’s Geet only. He smiles knowing that she must be feeling bored as he had not let her stepped out from the room once nd now wen she got a chance den she wont let it go.

 

“She just can’t just remain at one place for long” Maan thought as he remembered how she was trying to make him believe that she’s all fine nd can go out of the room. Only he knows how hard it was for him to suppress his smile that has been formed wen she had pouted nd den complaining to her Babaji. He shakes his head in disbelief nd opened his laptop back to work on the presentation.

 

***********************************************************

 

“I guess Maan was saying true. There’s really no one at home. Chalo koi baat nahi. I’ll just spend some tym in study nd den will come back to my room.” She thought as she made her way towards the study. As soon as she entered the study she saw Maan already present inside the study. She slaps her forehead at her bad luck because she knows that once Maan would see her in the study he’ll again send her back to room to take rest. Least she knows that Maan had sensed her presence long back.

 

“Had u planned to stand on the door only or u wanted to come inside also.” Maan said breaking Geet’s thoughts. She turned her head towards him only to find him engrossed in laptop

 

“How do you know that I am standing over here?” Geet asked surprisingly while entering inside.

 

“That’s not important Geet. Anyways tell me wat brings you here? Do you need something?” Maan asked as he puts his laptop aside nd looked at her.

 

“Ya, I am feeling bored now. I mean I am taking rest since noon nd I can’t take that anymore. Nd please you don’t ask me again to go back to room nd take rest because if I’ll stay in that room for one more minute then I’ll definitely go mad.” Geet said it all in one breath while slumping on the couch beside him making baby face nd Maan couldn’t help to chuckle seeing her antics.

 

“Fine I won’t ask you to go back to room nd take rest. But tell me wat had you planned to do in study.” Maan said as he took back his laptop nd again started working on his presentation.

 

“I can do anything like I can read some books or I can write something or can just sit over here nd watch you working nd even better I can help you in preparing your presentation.” She said nd Maan stopped in his actions nd looked at her confused.

 

“U’ll help me in preparing this presentation?” Maan asked while still not believing

 

“Ya ofcourse. Don’t you know I am very gud at PPT’s? My group secured first rank in MBA at the tym of presentation because of me.” Geet said while raising her invisible collar.

 

“Ok I believe you but seriously its perfectly fine Geet. I’ll manage it.” Maan said as he again shifted his gaze back towards Laptop.

 

“Maan please let me help you Na. u can work on other things in the mean tym I made the slides. Please.” Geet pleaded making a puppy face nd Maan just couldn’t say anything

 

“But Geet how will you able to made the PPT. u knew nothing about this project.” Maan asked trying last tym.

 

“I know about this project Maan. It’s the project for xyz Hospital at the outskirts of Delhi which is being constructed for the people staying near by with all the facilities so that they don’t have to go far in the case of emergency. The total worth of this project is about 25 crores nd if it has been successful den KC will see the profit of around 15 crores. Right?” Geet said nd Maan stared at her with his mouth open

 

“How do you know about the details of this project? I mean I didn’t discussed it wid you.” Maan asked unbelievingly

 

“Wo last nite I was arranging your files den only I came across this one nd den I overhears you talking to Adi regarding this project so I came to know about it.” Geet said while smiling sheepishly.

 

“Acha. So my Wife has now started spying on me.” Maan said teasingly nd Geet looked at him surprised. This is for the first tym he had called her his wife so openly. Maan too realizes wat did he just said.

 

“Anyways now u are so adamant to work on this presentation den here it is.” He said while handling her laptop

 

“Nd ya if you need any help then””

 

“Then I’ll ask you don’t worry” Geet said in between before Maan could complete himself

 

“Hhmmm” he could just said this only seeing her so much excited. He looked at her as she had started working on the Presentation nd den left to other corner to work on the blue prints.

 

*******************************************************

 

It’s been 2 hours since they both were in study working on the presentation nd dey both ere so engrossed in their respective works that the lost the track of tym. It seems that they both were enjoying wid their work. Geet finally keeps the laptop aside as she was done wid more den 50 % of the presentation so she decided to take some break. She stretches her arm to relax her muscles nd raises her head to look at Maan only to find him sleeping on the chair wid his head resting on the table.

 

“Probably he must be very much tired thatsy slept while working.” She thought as she looked at Maan’s sleeping form.

Music…

 

Then as if trance she slowly started to move towards him without removing her gaze from him. With every step she was taking towards him her heartbeats were raising like she had just done a marathon. Finally she stands near him nd looked at him closely.

 

Saathiya..
Saathiya..

Pagle se dil ne
Yeh kya kiya

 

Chun liya..
Chun liya..
Tujhko devane ne
Chun liya

 

Dil toh uda uda re
Aasman mein badalon ke sang
Yeh toh machal machal ke
Ga raha hai sun nayi si dhun

 

She noticed each nd every feature of his face which she was not able to do before. The frown on his forehead while he was sleeping, his thick blank Hairs, his stubble that always gives him a strong nd Macho look nd den finally her gaze falls on his perfect M shaped lips. She so much wanted to feel those Lips against hers, to be loved by him. The very thought has aroused her so much nd she mentally whacked herself for having such an erotic thoughts.

 

This is probably for the first tym wen she was looking at him so closely. He was looking so innocent nd calm in the sleep oblivious to all the worries around him. Her hands itched to caress his face but she controlled her urge somehow. Finally not able to control herself anymore she slowly raises her hand nd caressed his jaw line feeling his stubble under her palm.

 

She gently ruffled his hairs as if taking away his entire worries wen she felt Maan holding her hand nd keeping it underneath his face. She gasped at his sudden action. For once she thought that he has been awake but then she felt relaxed wen she saw him sleeping wid a smile on his face.

 

“Maan! Maan, get up.” she called out to him softly while trying to release her hand but Maan was nowhere to wake up instead he hold her hand more tightly preventing her from freeing her hand.

 

Geet sighed as she saw his childishness in his sleep nd den again tried to free her hand from his grip but more she tries to free her hand more tightly his grip gets. Finally she frees her hand away with a sudden jerk causing Maan to wake up from his deep slumber nd den everything went automatically.

 

Badmash dil toh thag hai bada (Badmash dil toh thag hai bada)
Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda (Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda)
Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada.. (Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada..)

Badmash dil toh thag hai bada (Badmash dil toh thag hai bada)
Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda (Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda)
Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada.. (Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada..)

 

Next Geet found herself landing on his lap with his hands wrapping around her waist protectively to prevent her from falling as a reflex. Geet hids her face in his chest in fear while clutching his shoulders tightly in result of which Maan made his grip around her waist more tight gluing her body against his. Geet could hear his raising heartbeats die to their sudden proximity as she places his head near his heart. She slowly draws back her head to look at him only to find him looking intently at her. Dey both kept on looking deep in each other’s eyes as if trying to read each other hearts. Both didn’t know how long they were lost in each other’s eyes as if the tym has been stopped for both of dem.

 

Maan stretched his hand out nd removed the lock hat was caressing his cheek nd tucked it behind her ear gently brushing his fingers over her cheek in the process feeling her soft skin. Geet closed her eyes nd clutched the collar of his shirt tight in her fist as she felt his touch. All this were just arousing new desires in dem to which they both were unknown. There was no sound in the room except the sound of their thudding heart nd erratic breaths. Maan looked at her closed eyes nd quivering Lips which was not less den an open invitation to him snapping the last straw of his self control. He had bend down his head also to feel those petals against his wen he heard the growling sound of Geet’s stomach bringing both of dem in reality.

 

(Pls. pause the song over here)

 

Both of them realizes what they were doing and in what compromising position they were in. Maan gently releases his grip around her waist. She immediately gets down from his lap nd straightens herself. Maan too quickly gets up from his chair nd straightens himself. Both looked other side feeling embarrassed. It was not less then a bliss for Geet to be touched by Maan like this but she knows that probably Maan won’t find it good. He can blame himself for loosing his control like this but least she knows that deep in Maan’s heart he felt that nothing could be more perfect den this but just like Geet he too felt that she may not find it right. Probably they both have forgotten the emotions they aw in each other’s eyes few moments back in their awkwardness.

 

“Wo I…” Both turned to say at the same tym to remove the awkwardness between them nd den stopped.

 

“Wo I am feeling hungry.” Geet said wen she saw Maan not saying anything nd looking other side nd Maan closes his eyes as he realizes his mistake. yes it was his mistake only that he had asked Nakul not to disturb Geet for anything while he took care of both of theirs Dinner nd later got so much engrossed in work that he had forgotten everything around him.

 

“Hhmmm lets go nd prepare something in the kitchen.” Maan said as he moved outside the study wid Geet silently thanking God for letting him stop in his actions or he won’t be able to face her if he had gone a step ahead in his actions.

 

Geet too went with him without saying anything as she was not in the state of saying anything after such proximity of them. It’s good that they both have distracted demselves on the pretext of making dinner atleast like this they both nd especially Maan wont think about it nd wont feel guilty for his actions because she was not at all guilty for whatever transpired between them as it was from one of those perfect moment that she had dreamt from the moment she realized her feelings for him.

 

Maan ran a frustrating hand through his hairs as he recalled the moment that had just been passed. Frustrated at his own self he took out the chilled bottle of water nd gulped it all in one go to calm all the erotic thoughts that were wandering in his mind. He still can’t believe it that he had lost his control like this. Last he remembers is that he was working on the blueprints nd den didn’t realize wen did he fell asleep. Nd den later in his sleep he felt someone caressing his face. He doesn’t know why but that touch was soothing him as if all his worries, all his pain were going far away from his lyf. even in his deep sleep he found that touch so familiar nd he just don’t want the warmth of that touch to go away from him nd probably thatsy he had held her hand so tightly.

 

But den he felt the warmth of her hand going away from him nd he held it more tightly prevent her from going nd den as if everything went automatically nd next he was awake from his sleep as he felt her freeing her hand nd in the next moment she was in his lap while his hands automatically went around her waist to hold her tight nd after that he don’t know what happened as he was just in some other world. The moment he looked in her eyes he forgets every other thing nd all he could see was is her nd her face, so beautiful nd so close to him. Nd in that trance he was going to do the thing which he was not supposed to do.

 

He was confused; confused at his own actions, confused at the way his body react wenever she’s around him, confused the way his heart went out of his control wenever she’s close to him, confused at the feelings that were arousing in him nd getting strong by every passing day. He can’t feel this way, its not right nd he knows that yet he can’t control himself around her. But he needs to keep a check on his feelings specially den wen he knows what’s the base of this relationship. It was not based on Love but on compromise which has been made for someone’s happiness nd that someone was the most important person in both of theirs lives. Den y cant he remember this fact wen he was with her? Y does his heart always gets drawn towards her? No he can’t do this to Geet. He can’t give her any false hopes due to this unknown attraction. It’ll just break her heart nd hopes nd he can’t afford it. He needs to nd he will control himself wen she’s around him.

 

He was lost in his thoughts wen he heard the tinkling sound of anklets behind him indicating that Geet is here. He quickly composed himself nd took a deep breath before turning towards Geet who was standing over dere fidgeting with the end of her duppatta. Maan knows that she must be feeling awkward or guilty for wat all has been transpired between them so he thought to lighten the atmosphere. But least he knows that she was not at all feeling guilty for the little moment of Love transpired between them she was feeling nervous because she was nit sure what he must be thinking for all this.

 

“This Nakul is really behaves stupid at times. I asked him not to disturb you for dinner as you are resting nd see here he had not even prepared the dinner for us. Stupid Fellow” Maan said nd Geet giggled out loud seeing him cursing Nakul. For few minutes he was just lost in her musical laughter but soon he shrugged off all his thoughts nd was happy that she was back to her original self.

 

“Maan, you leave it. I’ll prepare something for both of us.” Geet said as he control her laughter nd moved towards the kitchen counter.

 

“Geet wait!!!!! You are not going to make dinner alone. I’ll also help you.” Maan said as he came to stand next to her

 

“Maan, it’s perfectly fine. I’ll manage u go nd take some rest. U had presentation lined up tomorrow.”

 

“Geet, you are in this situation because of me. I mean I should be more specific to Nakul regarding the dinner so now don’t even think that you are going to prepare this dinner alone. And anyways if you can help me in my presentation then I can also help you in the kitchen ok. So now no more argument on this because I am not going to buy any.” Maan said in a final tone nd Geet sighed knowing that he’s not going to listen to her.

 

“Fine as you wish. So wat are we going to prepare for Dinner.” Geet said while crossing her arms across her chest.

 

“Anything but we have to prepare it fast as I am starving nd I am sure you too.”

 

“Ummm how about Paneer Manchurian nd Fried rice.” Geet said after thinking for a while nd Maan looked at her in surprise as it was his favourite dishes while Geet hardly likes Chinese.

 

“Are you sure. I mean I thought u don’t like Chinese” Maan said as he clearly remembered Sameera telling him that Geet is not fond of Chinese.

 

“Ya but dere’s always a first tym for everything so why not giving it a try this tym. Who knows probably I’ll start liking it too.” Geet said as she shrugged her shoulders.

 

“Are you sure Geet? I mean I’ll be fine with any other dish too.” Maan asked one final tym.

 

“I am 100% sure nd anyways if we keep on discussing on it like dis only Na den we both have to sleep without having dinner.” Geet said nd giggled at her own sentence

 

“Fine, I’ll cut the vegetables then.” Maan said while taking out the vegetables

 

“And I’ll prepare the batter for Manchurian.” She said nd dey both started doing their respective tasks.

Geet was feeling on the top of the world doing something for Maan. yes its true that she didn’t like Chinese infact she didn’t even remember wen was the last tym wen she had Chinese but for Maan she’s ready to have Chinese too because after Italian food if he likes something then its Chinese. So today she wanted to eat Maan’s favourite. Her own choice, her own taste didn’t seem to be matter to her anymore as if her lyf just revolves around Maan only from now on. She was happily preparing the Manchurian for Maan having thousand of feelings in her heart. She was feeling excited because she was going to prepare Maan’s fav, she was feeling nervous as she was not sure whether Maan is going to like it or not, she was feeling happy as this is probably for the first tym she nd Maan will have their dinner nd the very thought was giving goosebumps in her body nd she had started blushing. Lost in her own dream world she was happily preparing Manchurian smiling to herself wen she heard Maan’s loud gasp from behind.

 

“Aaahhh!!!!!” she heard Maan’s loud gasp nd as she turned around the sight that she saw had pierced her heart. Maan’s hand was bleeding while he was trying control the bleeding.

 

Maan was cutting vegetables for the fried Rice wen his gaze falls on Geet who was preparing Manchurian with a smile on her face. He don’t know wat makes her happy this much especially den wen the dish she was going to prepare is not at all her favourite. Yet she seems to be as happy as a kid who’s going to get his Favourite Chocolate. But whatever the reason behind her dis smile he was happy to see that smile that adorned her face. It just adds more sparks in her beauty. His heart feel contented to see her smile otherwise few mins back he thought that probably she wont be comfortable around him after wat had transpired between them but it seems that just like him she also thought it to let go nd decided to carry on their relationship the way they were carrying till now. He looked at her while cutting the vegetables nd found her still smiling. The locks of her hairs were continuously disturbing her while she was continuously pushing it back while twisting her lips nd Maan was just lost in these antics of hers. She is not less then a kid yet sometimes she handles everything so maturely. No matter how much he tried but he could never understand wat exactly she is. Lost in her he didn’t realize wen his came in place of the carrot nd he cuts that only to get hurt badly nd drawing Geet’s attention towards him.

 

“Maan!!” Geet gasped out loud nd quickly went near him leaving everything behind.

 

“Maan wat happen? How did you get hurt?” Geet asked as she checked his wound which was bleeding nd before Maan could say or do anything she puts his bleeding finger in her mouth sucking the blood.

 

Badmash dil toh thag hai bada (Badmash dil toh thag hai bada)
Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda (Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda)
Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada.. (Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada..)

Badmash dil toh thag hai bada (Badmash dil toh thag hai bada)
Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda (Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda)
Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada.. (Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada..)

 

Maan just looked at her dumbfounded not knowing what to do or how to react. He was too shocked with Geet’s sudden act to say or do anything. She had no idea what Havoc she was creating in Maan’s body with this act of hers. She was just arousing those desires in him which according to him is sinful in their relationship yet somewhere deep in his heart he was liking it but the reality of their relationship was stopping him to feel anything like this. Oblivious to the havoc she was creating in Maan’s body Geet was busy sucking his finger as of sucking her pain through it. Finally wen she felt that his finger was no more bleeding she puts out his finger from her mouth nd looked at Maan who was looking at her confused nd shocked nd dats wen it hits her what she just did nd her cheeks just went Deep red as the realization of her actions hits her.

 

She immediately let go his finger nd looked other side to escape from his gaze. Maan too came in his senses wen he felt her leaving his finger. He looked at Geet who was looking away from him. Both didn’t know what to say to each other or wat to do now to lighten the atmosphere. In that trance Maan puts his wounded finger on the counter only to hissed in pain again.

 

“Ouch!!” his gasp made Geet to look at him nd within no tym she’s near him leaving all the awkwardness that she was feeling.

 

“Maan Ur wound needs dressing or else it’ll get worse.” She said as she checked his wound nd went to bring the first aid box.

 

Badmash dil toh thag hai bada (Badmash dil toh thag hai bada)
Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda (Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda)
Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada.. (Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada..)

Badmash dil toh thag hai bada (Badmash dil toh thag hai bada)
Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda (Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda)
Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada.. (Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada..)

 

And in no tym she was back with the first Aid Box. She immediately took Maan towards the sink nd washed the mark of blood nd then slowly puts the tincture on his wound. Though wound was not much deep yet Everytym Maan hissed in pain due to the burning sensation of tincture Geet felt like thousand needles piercing her heart nd her eyes automatically wells up. She slowly blowed at the wound to reduce the burning sensation of tincture nd den puts the bandage on it.

 

All the while Maan was just looking at her without saying a word. He was liking the way she was caring for him. But he didn’t understand the reason of her tears while dressing up his wound. Was she crying because he was in pain, he doesn’t know but he doesn’t like seeing tears in her eyes whether it was for him also. All the while she didn’t looked up at him yet he could see her pained face as if it was she who got hurt. Finally wen she finished with the bandage she raises her head to look up at him nd Maan saw her eyes which was so full of care nd pain just for him, just because he got hurt. But in the amidst of all dis he failed to see the immense Love that was there in her eyes along with care nd pain or probably he don’t want to see it right now.

 

(Pls Pause the song over here)

 

“Where were you lost Maan? I told you that I’ll do everything but you didn’t listen to me now see you got hurt.” Geet’s voice broke his trance nd he looked at her with a smile so that she could feel better.

 

“Geet, I am fine nd dis was just a small cut. Nothing to worry.” Maan assured her while smiling.

 

“Small cut? It was bleeding. Wo to I sucked it or else…” she stopped in mid as she realized wat she had done just now nd once again she looked away blushing profusely.

 

“It’s ok. It happens. U did wat u felt right at that situation. Don’t feel guilty about it.” Maan said as if understanding what she was thinking nd Geet looked at him in surprise. She still didn’t understand how she always reads what’s going in her heart.

 

“Waise Geet don’t you think that you had put something on Gas burner to prepare.” Maan said in order to divert her mind nd Geet instantly remembers that she had forget to turn off the gas in the hurry to come near the gas.

 

“Manchurian!!!! Maan the Manchurian must have been in ashes by now.” Geet said as she quickly rushes towards Gas only to find it off. She looked at Maan who was standing beside her smirking.

 

“Don’t worry I had turned off the gas while you had gone to take the first aid box. Since Manchurian is all ready by now den lets prepare Fried Rice fast because if I’ll stay hungry for few more minutes den I’ll definitely Die” As soon as Maan complete his words he found Geet’s palm covering his mouth. The look in her eyes clearly said that she was hell scared with his statement.

 

“Maan pls never ever say like this. U don’t know how much scared did I get.” Geet said as she felt pain in her heart with just the mere thought of it.

 

“Geet, I was just saying like that only.” Maan said slowly while still looking into her eyes which still had fear in them. Same fear that he had seen wen Bade Papa was in hospital.

 

“Pls Maan u’ll not say it even in joke also. Pls.” Geet said literally pleading nd Maan just held her in his embrace to comfort her.

 

“I promise Geet. I’ll never say something like this.” He said while rubbing her back nd Geet just held her more tight. She can’t even think of her lyf without him now. Yes it’s true that she would probably never be able to confess her feelings to him but atleast he will always be dere in front of his eyes all safe nd sound nd her heart is contented with this only. She would probably die before anything happens to him if it costs his safety. So was her Love for him is. After a while Maan pulled her out from his embrace nd wiped away the tear that had just escaped from her eyes.

 

“Come Geet. Let’s prepare the dinner” Maan said as he patted her cheeks in order to divert her mind nd dey both started preparing the rest of the dinner.

 

****************************************************************

 

Dey had their dinner with Geet continuously speaking nd Maan just listening to her while stealing glances of her by every now nd den. Geet felt like she was in cloud nine when Maan liked the dinner. Her heart was just danced in joy to see that Maan likes wat she had prepared for him. Strangely she too was liking Chinese now which she never liked. Probably she was with Maan thatsy she’s finding everything perfect nd Good. God! She’s totally lost in Maan’s Love. Many tymes their hands touched while taking the bowl or water nd Everytym they both felt some current coursing in their veins but the irony is that Geet knows the reason while Maan has yet to realize it.

 

After having a good nd peaceful Dinner Maan took the plate to binned it in Sink. Geet too got up from her chair to help Maan wen her foot got stuck in the table nd got twisted making her fall.

 

“Aahhh Maan!!!!” her scream draws Maan’s attention nd he just stopped dead in his tracks.

 

“Geet” he muttered as he sensed danger nd immediately rushed towards her leaving the plates somewhere at the counter.

 

“Geet, Geet what Happen to you? How did you fallen down” Maan said as he saw her on the floor holding her leg.

 

“Wo I was getting up from the chair nd my leg’. Aahhh’.. My leg got struck at the table nd I fell down. Aahhh’.. Maan it’s really paining a lot.” Geet said while wincing in pain in between

 

“Geet don’t worry it’ll be fine. Here let me see” Maan said as he extended his hand towards her ankle to check any sign of injuries.

 

“No Pls. it’ll pain more.” Geet said while immediately holding his hand.

 

“Geet, it’ll not pain. Ok first let me help you to get up.” Maan said nd gently tried to get her up from the floor but more she tried more she got tripped due to lack of balance. Somehow Maan managed to make her sit on the chair.

 

“Maan pls don’t touch it. It’ll pain more.” Geet said while stopping Maan yet again as he extended his hand to ouch her ankle.

 

“Geet, I think you got a sprain. Let me check it.” Maan said while removing her grip from his hand

 

“But…” she tried to protest only to be interrupted by him.

 

“Geet, do you trust me.” Maan said in between nd Geet nodded in yes.

 

“Den let me check it. Trust me it won’t hurt.” Maan said in between nd the moment he said this Geet forget everything nd just looked at him.

 

(Kindly resume)

 

Music…

 

O…Achhi lage
Dil ko mere
Har teri baat re

Saaya tera
Ban ke chalun
Itna hai khwab re…

Kaandhe pe sar
Rakh ke tere
Kat jaye raat re

Beetenge din
Thame tere
Hathon mein hath re

 

Yeh kya hua mujhe
Mera yeh dil
Phisal phisal gaya

Yeh kya hua mujhe
Mera jahaan
Badal badal gaya

 

Maan kneeled down in front of her on the floor nd kept her foot on his thigh gently massaging it. She winces a bit in between due to pain but more den pain she was feeling pleasure due to Maan’s gentle caress. Maan gently rubbed his thumb from her angle to her toe to reduce the sensation of pain but only he knows how much hard tym he was facing in controlling himself while caressing her soft skin. She had no idea wat happens to him wenever her came in contact with her silky skin but right now he his priority is her injury nd he just cant let himself distracted in the flow of his emotions. So he just kept her mind in control in order to prevent himself from distracting. Geet closed het eyes as she was feeling Goosebumps in her body. Maan’s gentle touch was sending shiver down her spine nd she was feeling like drifted in some other world where only she nd Maan is present. She was lost in the sensation Maan is creating in her wen he twisted her foot a bit hard so that the vein that had got displaced come to its place.

 

“Ouch!!!!” Geet gasped out loud nd clutched his shoulders tight as he twisted her leg nd in no tym Maan came to his level supporting her by her shoulders.

 

“Geet, are you feeling fine now.” Maan asked while gently rubbing her arms to sooth her pain. Geet slowly opened her eyes only to see Maan’s Dark ones nd then she forgets all her pain nd just keeps looking at his eyes which were oozing so much concern nd care just for her. her eyes did a flip flop as this thought came to her mind nd she gripped his shoulder more tight in order to calm her erratic heartbeats.

 

Badmash dil toh thag hai bada (Badmash dil toh thag hai bada)
Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda (Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda)
Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada.. (Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada..)

Badmash dil toh thag hai bada (Badmash dil toh thag hai bada)
Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda (Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda)
Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada.. (Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada..)

 

“Geet, is it still paining?” Maan asked softly as he felt her grip getting tight on his shoulders to which she just nodded in no nd keeps on looking at him.

 

“Geet, come let me take you to room.” Maan said while getting up fro the floor nd extending his hand towards her.

 

Geet held his hand for support nd tried to get up but then she again got tripped due to her sprain. But before she could fall Maan held her by her waist nd makes her stand on her feet. Geet looked into his eyes making an innocent face nd Maan just felt like eating her up right den nd dere.  But den he immediately shrugged off all the erotic thoughts that were crossing in his mind due to their proximity nd held her more tightly to prevent her from getting tripped.

 

Music…

 

O … neendein nahin
Chaina nahin
Badalun mein karvate..
Taare ginu ya main ginu
Chadar ke salwate..

 

Yaadon mein tu
Khwab mein tu
Teri hi chahatein

Jaaun jidhar
Dhoonda karun
Teri hi aahate

 

Yeh jo hai dil mera
Yeh dil suno na
Keh raha yahin

Wo bhi kya zindagi
Hai zindagi ki
Jis mein tu nahi

 

She tried to walk again but again got disbalanced. Maan sighed nd without thinking twice he scooped her up in his arms gaining a gasp from Geet. She was not ready for this sudden action of Maan nd by the tym she realized she saw Maan taking her to their room. Her heart was beating faster as she realized their proximity nd she was sure that Maan would definitely heard it. Unconsciously her hand gets encircled around his neck for support. She just couldn’t take his eyes off from the face of her handsome husband nd was feeling a current coursing down her spine with his strong hand around her holding so securely. This is probably for the first tym he had held her like this nd she felt like this moment to stop here only where she can be in his arms forever.

 

Maan’s condition was not less too. He was trying his best to look ahead but just couldn’t take his eyes off from her angelic face no matter how hard he tried. It seems her bewitching eyes had captivated him hard preventing him to think anything rational. He don’t know what’s happening to him? Few hours back he had decided to keep check on his emotions nd now he was again getting lost in her innocence, he was again felt himself getting pulled towards like a moth gets attracted towards fire. But it seems so right nd perfect at this moment having her in his arms. Not once did he removed his intense gaze from hers nd continued walking upstairs to their room.

 

Lost in each other eyes they didn’t realize wen did they reached to their room. Maan gently laid her on bed nd went to take the balm from the side drawer. But oblivious to all this Geet was only looking at him with all the love on her eyes that she had for him. She didn’t realize wen Maan came back nd had started applying ointment on her swelled foot.

 

Badmash dil toh thag hai bada (Badmash dil toh thag hai bada)
Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda (Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda)
Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada.. (Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada..)

 

Saathiya..
Saathiya..
Pagle se dil ne
Yeh kya kiya

 

Chun liya..
Chun liya..
Tujhko deewane ne
Chun liya

 

Dil toh uda uda re
Aasman mein badalon ke sang
Yeh toh machal machal ke
Ga raha hai sun nahi si dhun

 

Badmash dil toh thag hai bada (Badmash dil toh thag hai bada)
Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda (Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda)
Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada.. (Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada..)

Badmash dil toh thag hai bada (Badmash dil toh thag hai bada)
Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda (Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda)
Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada.. (Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada..)

 

 

Maan looked at her by every now nd den while applying the ointment only to find her looking at him. Just then she saw him keeping the ointment other side nd slowly moving away towards her. Her breath got hitched in her throat wen she saw his face mere inches away from her. She wanted to say something but it seems that she had lost all the words had got struck in her throat. Maan cradled her face from one side nd slightly turns towards him so that she can look in his eyes. Geet looked in his eyes only to find raw passion nd desire oozing from it. She closed her eyes submitting herself to the person she is madly in love with. Maan looked at her closed eyes nd quivering lips nd he just couldn’t ignore the invitation. He finally closed the gap between them nd sealed his lips with hers. He gently sucked, nibbled, bites on her lips kissing her passionately. Geet too kissed him back with equal fervor giving herself to him. Maan bites her lower lip to gain entry in her mouth getting a throaty moan from her.

 

“Maan” she moaned in his mouth as his tongue gained entry in her mouth exploring each nd every corner of her mouth.

 

“Geet, wat happen? Is it paining?” Maan’s voice made Geet to open her eyes nd she looked at him only to find him sitting in front of her where he was before.

 

Does that mean that she was dreaming? Maan nd she was not that close in real, she thought as she looked at Maan who was looking at her confused. Her eyes went wide as she realized that it was just a part of her imagination where she nd Maan were this close. Her cheeks automatically turned in the shape of deep red as she realized how erotic her dream was. She was just not able to meet Maan’s gaze as she knows that he’ll definitely read it in her eyes from wat she’s going through. She just wanted earth to be open nd consume her before Maan could understand how erotic her thoughts have became nd wat all she was dreaming. The mere thought of her dream has made her all wet nd she just felt like hiding her face somewhere.

 

“Geet, I am asking you something? Is it still paining?” Maan said while shrugging her shoulders breaking the trail of her thoughts

 

“No, its fine. It’s perfectly fine.” Geet said still not daring to look into his eyes

 

“Are you sure Geet?” Maan said cradling her face from one side nd Geet’s heart skipped countless beats as the image of her dream came into her mind.

 

“Ya I am perfectly fine.” She somehow managed to say smiling nervously.

 

“Ok den just sleep. It’s really late.” Maan said as he gently laid her down nd tucked her up in the spread

 

“But wo Presentation” Geet said as she reminds of the task she left incomplete

 

“Don’t worry about that I’ll complete the rest of it. You just sleep nd ya if you feel any kind of pain den don’t hesitate to call me. I’ll apply ointment on your foot.” Maan said nd Geet immediately nodes her head in no

 

“NO!!!!! It’s fine.” She said out loud confusing Maan.

 

“I mean I am fine. It’s not paining much now nd I am sure it’ll be fine by morning.” Geet said as she knows how erotic her thoughts become wen Maan is around her.

 

“Fine as you wish. But so call me if you need anything. Good night.” Maan said as he tucked her securely in the blanket nd goes out of the room switching off the lights.

 

Badmash dil toh thag hai bada (Badmash dil toh thag hai bada)
Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda (Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda)
Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada.. (Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada..)

Badmash dil toh thag hai bada (Badmash dil toh thag hai bada)
Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda (Badmash dil yeh tujh se juda)
Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada.. (Badmash dil meri sune na zid pe ada..)

 

 

Geet looked at his retreating figure nd immediately hid her face in her palms feeling shy of her own thoughts. She has totally lost in his husband’s love nd as a result she had started day dreaming of him like this. She smiled widely as she recalled her dream nd gets inside the blanket putting it over her head holding her heart which was still beating so fast even after Maan had gone away from room nd slept with a smile on her face dreaming of the person with whom she had fell irrecoverably in Love with.

 

The shattering sound of Mirror glass echoed in the whole room as it became the victim of someone’s Rage nd Jealousy. Vidyut was standing over dere looking at his broken Image on every piece of the broken glass just like his heart that broke Everytym like this only wenever he sees Maan nd Geet together. Just like it did wen he saw both of them together few moments back.

 

He had gone to Kitchen to drink some water wen he noticed the lights of the Dining Area are on. He frowned thinking who could be awake at this tym of night nd decided to check on it wen he saw Maan nd Geet over dere lost in each other eyes. Gee was holding his shoulders tight while Maan was gently rubbing her arms. He couldn’t listen what they were talking about but nearness in their relationship is clearly evident to him.

 

His Grip on the nearby Door tightened wen he saw Maan scooping Geet in his arms as dey made their way towards their room lost in each other eyes. They were so lost in each other that both were oblivious of the presence of someone else also over dere. It was as if the world around them doesn’t seems to be exist for both if them. By each step Maan took Geet to their room Vidyut feel like someone is draining his life from his body.

 

Even a blind person could see how much they both are in Love with each other den here he was watching it from his own eyes which just shattered his heart into million pieces. He can’t see Maan at the place where he was supposed to be. It was his dream to be with Geet like this nd seeing Maan at his place was something that he can’t tolerate. But oblivious to him Maan nd Geet were lost in their own sweet world. He didn’t failed to notice that sweet smile of contentment that was playing on Geet’s lips which just burned his heart more.

 

The sound of shutting the door made him look towards their room nd he don’t have to comprehend what all could be happening behind that close door. The mere thought made him die thousand deaths nd he banged his fist hard on the nearby Wall in frustration hurting himself. But this pain was nothing in compared to the pain that he was feeling right now seeing the Love of his life in someone else arm that too so much in Love. Frustrated he left for his room not able to bear the sight in front of him.

 

“Why Geet Why? Why you did this to me?” He roared out loud as he recalled wat he saw few moments back.

 

“How can you Love someone so deeply Geet wen you know that I was in Love with you. I asked you to wait for me but it seems that you haven’t even gave a thought also on what I said to you that day before leaving. Does really Money matters to you this much that you got ready to marry the person who was your sister’s love? And Maan how could he fall in Love with you wen he was so deeply in Love with Sameera den how can he Love you? How can you both Love each other so much? No you can’t Love him Geet, you just cant. You can’t Love him Geet, because I Love you. You are mine only mine. My Love, my possession, my obsession nd I wont let anyone snatch you away from me. Not even Maan.” he said as he vowed to get back what is his unknown of the fact that it’s not in his hand to change the destiny nd destiny had already written Maan’s nd Geet’s name in each other lives.

 

*************************************************************

 

Next morning Geet woke up with a sweet smile on his face. After so many days she had slept so peacefully dreaming about her husband. She don’t want to get up from her sleep where she was dreaming of her Maan. She blushed hard as she recalled the dream that she saw of Maan. She so much loves this new find feeling of hers towards her husband. Though she knows that her feelings may only be one sided knowing how deeply Maan Loved nd still loves Sameera but who said that she can’t love him after knowing this fact. She had never expected anything in their relationship so how can she expect something now. she was just happy in Loving him like this only nd anyways she had heard this fact that Love happens without any expectations nd where there is any expectation there cant be any Love. So she also won’t expect anything from him but will only keep loving him like this only from far, she thought nd prayed to her Babaji to give her strength so that she won’t weaken n her resolve to keep him happy always.

 

Thinking this she turned to get down from Bed wen she saw Maan getting ready for office. Probably he didn’t notice that she had waked up from her sleep yet but Geet’s eye widens in shock as she realizes how late she had slept today.

 

“Hey Babaji! From where did I got dis much sleep today that I got u late. Maan is already to go for his office nd I haven’t prepared his coffee yet. Forget about preparing coffee I haven’t even got ready yet nd here Maan is all ready to go to office. Babaji! Why you had to made me dream so much of Maan that I completely forgot that there’s a real world too in which I had to take care of his Daily needs. I’ll definitely see you later but first I need to prepare coffee for Maan.” Geet cribbed to her Babaji as if it was his mistake that she had dreamt of Maan this much nd immediately gets down from bed only to get collided with Maan who was coming to take his watch from the bed side table.

 

Maan immediately held her tight from her waist before she could fell back on bed d pulled her towards him crashing her petite body to his hard chest. Geet opened her eyes wen she didn’t get a fall only to meet his dark ones nd always just lost in them. Maan forget to breathe wen he saw her so close to him looking at him with her innocent eyes. His gaze falls on the crumbled sheets on the bed behind nd he felt all the desires arousing in him once again. He immediately averts his gaze nd looked at her committing the biggest mistake of his lyf as her look has just add more fuel in the fire. Her hairs were all messed up due to sleep, eyes were still droopy with sleep nd night dress was upright giving, her that seductress look nd Maan felt himself aroused just by thinking of it. She literally had no idea how he was feeling right now seeing her like this. He felt the desires nd passion burning in his veins crying out loud to just eat her up alive but then he immediately whacked himself for having such an erotic thought. But what can he also do, wenever he look in those hazels eyes he forgets each nd every rational thing nd all he could see is her.

 

Geet’s condition was not less. Already she was having such a hard tym to control her feelings for him wen he’s around nd now having him so close to her was just making it more hard. She so much wanted to confess each nd everything that’s there in her heart for him wen she looked into his chocolaty brown eyes which were getting dark with desires making her shudder. She couldn’t fathom for few minutes that whether she’s dreaming it again or Maan is really this much close to him looking at her with his desiring eyes. She looks down blushing hard not able to bear his intense gaze on her which were burning each nd every fiber of her body in desires.

 

Their eye lock session remains for what seems like eternity wen loud shrill of ringtone of Maan’s cell brought them back in reality nd dey immediately pulled away from each other looking other side. Maan took the call nd discussed few things for the presentation while Geet just stood over dere dazed looking at him. She came back into her senses wen she saw Maan heading outside the room nd she immediately realized how late she got today.

 

“Why didn’t you woke me up” Maan stopped in his track wen he heard Geet’s voice. Smirking he turned to look at Geet who was standing over dere with worried face

 

“Haan tell me y didn’t you woke me up? You know how late slept today. You are all ready for your office nd I haven’t prepared your coffee yet. Wat Dadimaa will think of me wen she won’t find me on dining table early. Don’t know how come I slept for so long today but you have to wake me up Na if I haven’t waked up by myself but you didn’t nd wo to I accidently got up or else you would have gone to office without even telling me.” She said more than blabbering to herself while Maan just stood over dere smiling listening to her blabbering

 

“Done? Or is dere anything left to say?” Maan voice stopped her blabbering nd she looked at him ho was looking at her with his arms crossed across his chest.

 

“First of all it’s not that late like you were thinking. Its just 8 of the morning right now. I got up bit early as I had to leave for office early today. I haven’t woke you up because you were sleeping so peacefully nd moreover you got hurt also last night so I thought to let you rest for sometym nd Dadimaa wont say anything because she already knows that you got hurt last night. Nd as far as my coffee is concerned then you still had 30 minutes with you. I am going to study to check the last minute details so ring my coffee over dere only.” Maan said nd Geet looked at him blank trying to register each nd every word of his. He haven’t waked up because he saw her sleeping peacefully. That means he cares for her ofcourse he did nd she knows that yet her heart danced in joy Everytym he did like this.

 

“Suniye” Geet called out to him wen she saw him going out once again making Maan stopped in his track once again.

 

“Ji Kahiye” Maan said imitating her giving her a lop sided smile which she didn’t noticed.

 

“wo you had wore wrong tie. I mean it doesn’t match with your shirt.” Geet said nd moved towards the cupboard to get another tie. After fishing for few seconds she came out with another tie nd gave it to him.

 

Maan was totally bowled seeing her care towards him. Though it was not new to him as she always took care of his daily needs like this but he never thought that she’ll notice every small thing of his like this also. He didn’t realize that he had chosen wrong tie until she told him. How much dependent he got on her, he thought as he looked at her who had now removed his previous tie nd now making him wear the one she took out for him. He just kept looking at her as she continues her process of making him wear the tie. Not once did he remove his gaze from her. She had no idea how special he feels wen she cares of him like this.

 

“It’s done.” Geet’s voice broke his thoughts nd he realized from how long he was gaping at her. He took a deep breath to compose himself before Geet could understand what’s going in his heart.

 

“Thanks. Ummm I am going to study.” Maan said nd immediately left from there before he could do something stupid leaving Geet behind smiling

 

**************************************************************

 

Maan left for office early that day. Though Geet had given him his coffee before he left but he didn’t had his breakfast as he had to leave office early. Geet tried hard to make him have his breakfast but he refused saying that he’ll have it in office as he was getting late. Saying this he left giving Geet one more reason to worry. She was pacing restlessly in Annie’s room where Vicky nd Annie were already present. She tried many tymes to talk to him but Everytym his cell phone came switched off indicating that he’s still in meeting.

 

“Relax Bhabhi! Aap to aise pareshaan ho rahi hai jaise ki Bhai koi 4 saal ke bacche ho aur aaj unka school me first day ho.” Vicky said nd chuckled at him own sentence only to get a glare from Geet.

 

[Relax Bhabhi! you were getting worried as if Bhai was a 4 year Kid who had first day in his school today]

 

“Vicky Tum apne Bhaiya ko jante nahi ho kya? Ek baar wo kaam me lag jate hai to baki sab cheez bhool jate hai. Yaad hai na last month he had suffered from high BP due to neglecting his health due to work.” Geet said as she reminds of the problems Maan faced last month nd Vicky immediately nodded like an obedient child.

 

[Vicky don’t you know your brother? Once he gets engrossed in work he forgets every other thing around him. You remember Na last month he had suffered from high BP due to neglecting his health due to work]

 

“Aaj to breakfast bhi karke nahi Gaye hai. Pata nahi Lunch bhi tym pe karenge ya nahi. Kahin Kaam me itna bhi Na kho jaye ki Lunch bhi Na kare.” Geet said in a worried voice as she tried to reach Maan once again.

 

[Today he hasn’t done his breakfast also. Don’t know whether he’ll have his lunch on tym or not. I am afraid that he won’t get this much engrossed in his work that he skip his lunch also]

 

“To Geet aaj Tum Bhai ka lunch leke office chali jao Na.” Annie said as she got up from the couch nd stand near Geet.

 

[So Geet today you take Bhai’s Lunch in the office Na]

 

“Me? But agar unhe acha nahi laga aur wo naraaz ho gaye to?” Geet asked doubtfully

 

[Me? but wat if he don’t like it nd he gets angry]

 

“O god Bhabhi y you are thinking this much? Remember you are Mrs. Geet Maan Singh Khurana you can’t get scared from him. And have you ever heard any wife getting scared from his husband. Its only husband who use to get scared from his wife. Bhai me to kya khud Yamraj me bhi itna dam nahi hai ki wo apni wife ko kuch kahe” Vicky said non chalantly only to be get whacked by both Geet nd Annie on either side of his arms.

 

[O god Bhabhi y you are thinking this much? Remember you are Mrs. Geet Maan Singh Khurana you can’t get scared from him. And have you ever heard any wife getting scared from his husband. Its only husband who use to get scared from his wife. Forget about Bhai not even the great life taker Yamraj has courage to say anything to his wife.]

 

“Shut Up Vicky! You can never speak anything sensible. You are comparing Maan bhai with Yamraaj. how stupid” Annie said nd Vicky made a grumpy face

 

“yeh Lo! Sahi baat ki to koi kadar hi nahi reh gayi hai.” Vicky said as he rubbed his arm where both Geet nd Annie had whacked.

 

[Very Good! Nobody cares for the true words]

 

“Geet Ignore him nd you don’t worry for anything. This is not the first tym you are going to take Bhai’s Lunch in the office, right? Den why are you getting this much nervous? You just take Bhai’s Lunch in the office without any second thoughts. Trust me he’ll feel happy. Tum Dekhna wen Bhai will see you in office with his Lunch na den��.” She couldn’t complete herself as Vicky interrupted in between

 

“Den Bhai will sing this song as soon he’ll see you�. what was that song�.. Ya “Tujh mein Rab Dikhta hai, Yara main kya karoon”.” Vicky sings out aloud nd Geet blushed hard as she literally imagined Maan singing for her.

 

“Shut up Vicky. We are here to boost up Geet’s confidence not to make her more nervous.”

 

“To main pakka jayoon Na” Geet asked uncertainly

 

[So, you both sure na that I should go]

 

“YES!!!!!!!” Both Vicky nd Annie said in unison while giving her a stern look.

 

“Haan to theek hai Na ja rahi hoon. Aise looks kyun de raho ho. Bye will see you in the evening.” Geet said nd rushed outside towards kitchen before they could start with their round of teasing

 

[Ya f9 na I am going. Y u both are giving me this looks? Bye will see you in the evening.]

 

“Bhabhi do tell me the details of urs nd Bro’s moments after coming back so that I can also use that on Savy” Vicky said from behind nd both Annie nd he laughed but Geet ignored it nd literally rushed towards Kitchen blushing hard

 

She was so lost in holding these happiness nd her Love for Maan in her hands that she failed to notice someone standing near the door witnessing the whole scene nd getting more nd more envious by the things are turning out to be. It was Vidyut who was going to Dadimaa’s room wen he heard Geet’s voice from Annie’s room nd he stopped wen she mentioned Maan’s name nd listened to the whole conversation. He didn’t failed to notice the blush on Geet’s cheeks wen Vicky was teasing her neither did he failed to notice the happiness nd excitement in her as she made her way towards Kitchen nd all this was making him just more nd more frustrated nd suffocated. He clenched his fist tight in order to control the anger that was coursing through his veins nd left from there without conversing to Dadimaa.

 

************************************************************

 

Geet reached office with Maan’s lunch no cut that with both of hers nd Maan’s Lunch. She had already told Dadimaa that she’ll be having Lunch with Maan today nd Dadimaa was more then happy seeing the progress in their relationship. She asked Pinky about Maan nd came to know that he’s still in the meeting so she decided to wait for him in his cabin only. She said a quick bye to Pinky nd headed towards Maan’s cabin greeting everyone whom she met in her way.

 

As she reached Maan’s cabin she placed the lunch on the nearby table nd went towards his desk where Files nd papers were all scattered. Knowing Maan she knows that he always wants everything to be perfect nd in its place but wenever he was in hurry of something then there’s always dis mess. She sighed nd started her work of cleaning his table nd placing everything nicely. It took her whole 15 mins to clean up all the mess nd placing everything neatly.

 

She smiled widely as she saw everything perfect nd in order nd goes towards the chair where Maan use to sit. She could still feel his aroma nd presence in that chair making her drown in the desires coursing in her. Unknowingly she ran her hand on the arms of chair imagining it to be Maan’s strong muscular arms who gad always holded her protectively in them. She continues to run her hand on the chair nd as she runs it further on the seat she felt like caressing Maan’s taut chest nd Abs. how badly she wished that it would be him in the place of chair where she was running her hand nd the mere thought had made her heart flatter nd she felt herself getting wet. She blushed hard as she realized how erotic her thoughts have become now-a-days for her husband. But what can she do wen she had such a handsome nd sexy husband. She hits her head playfully as this thought crosses her mind. God! She had felt irrecoverably in Love with him probably thatsy she was feeling this much nervous today wen she was coming to office.

 

“Geet.” She heard Maan’s voice that brings her back in the real world. She turned to look behind only to find standing near there looking at her surprised nd that’s wen she realized from how long she was lost in his thoughts.

 

“Did he saw wat I was doing?” she thought as she tried to read Maan’s expressions praying that he didn’t noticed what all she was thinking.

 

“Maan, wen did you came?” She asked as she composed herself

 

“Just now Geet. But what are you doing over here?” Maan asked as he made his way towards her

 

“Wo Main�.. Main Haan I was here to give you your Lunch. Wo you haven’t taken your breakfast also na so I thought of bringing Lunch for you.” Geet said mentally patting herself for coming up with the best idea.

 

“Oh! Thanks Geet but you shouldn’t have to take this much trouble I mean you could have send it with Nakul too. Y did you bother, u got sprain last night so you should have take rest at home.” Maan said nd Geet pouted as she saw no change in Maan’s behaviour. Not that expected him to sing for her like what Vicky had said but she had atleast expected few sweet words from him. But boy was she wrong? Sweet words nd him, how can she forget that he’s always an angry Young Man with whom she had fallen irrecoverably in love with.

 

“Geet, what happen? What are you thinking?” Maan’s voice broke her cribbing session to her Babaji nd she saw Maan sitting at his chair nd working on Laptop, same chair which she was caressing few minutes back imagining it to be Maan. Her cheeks went in darkest shade of red as she thought wat she was doing.

 

“Geet I am asking you something? Where are you lost?” Maan said yet again as he got no reply from her breaking Geet’s thoughts

 

“Main wo� nothing” Geet said while smiling sheepishly nd Maan looked at her while squinting his eyes.

 

“Haan wo why you are not having your Lunch?” Geet asked as she came out with a best idea to give a break to her romantic thoughts.

 

“Geet, I’ll have it afterwards. Abhi I need to do some work. Ah! BTW I forgot to tell you the presentation that you had made was good. I am impressed. The meeting went successful because of ur presentation” Maan said expecting her to be excited like always listening to her praise but what she did next had surprised him.

 

“What do you mean by that u’ll have afterwards? No, u’ll have it right now because I know that once you’ll get engrossed in work den you’ll forget every other thing.” Geet said completely ignoring what Maan had said latter for her appreciation. Well, it was nothing unusual she never thinks about herself once wen it comes to Maan.

 

Maan just looked at her amazed as if she was an alien. God! He had just appreciated her work nd inspite of getting happy or excited she was scolding him for ignoring his Lunch. This girl is really beyond his understanding. How can any one be so selfless? Y cant she think of herself just once, he thought as he looked at her

 

“Maan, I am talking to you. Keep all your work right now nd have Lunch first.” Geet said in a stern voice nd Maan looked at her with a raised eyebrow.

 

“Geet, I said I’ll have it afterwards. Don’t worry I’ll not forget about it.” Maan said as he shifted his attention towards Laptop wen Geet came to his side nd shuts down his laptop.

 

“Wat the Hell�..” Maan couldn’t complete himself as Geet intervened.

 

“Quiet! Don’t say a word more because I am not going to buy it. Keep all your work aside nd have lunch first. You remember last month you suffered from hypertension due to ignoring your health nd I don’t want history to repeat again. So, now be a good boy nd come to the table fast. I am arranging the lunch till then.” Geet said in a stern voice as she leaned towards him while pointing her finger towards him nd Maan looked at her with his eyes wide open.

 

Was she’s his same timid nd shy wife who use to feel so awkward to ask anything to him? No way, she’s the same Sherni whom he met for the first tym at Sameera’s house. After so many months he was seeing this side of hers nd he really felt good somewhere in his heart seeing this side of hers once again. But what happen all of a sudden that she had transformed yet again that too over night. y does she care so much for him especially den wen she knows that he camt goive her any happiness that she deserves yet she always did her best to make sure that he’s happy nd all good. Well its better if he should leave this thought aside for now nd goes towards the table before this sherni could eat her up alive, he smiled at his own thought nd made his way towards the table where Geet was arranging the lunch.

 

On the other hand Geet herself was surprised at her own behaviour. After her marriage she had never behaved with Maan like this. Though she had always taken care of him but she had never shown her this attitude to him like she did now. From where did she get this much courage? Probably the feeling that she had for him in her heart had bring out this side of her. It was as if she wanted to let him know that she possess him nd she had full right to make him listen to her. She had never compromised with his health initially also nd like this way or other she had always made him agree to her but today she was so much stern towards him just like what Vicky had said that she’s Mrs. Geet Maan Singh Khurana nd she can’t get scared from his anger nd he can’t deny her too. She was his wife Afterall nd she had full right to make him agree on things which is good for him like she did now no matter if he considers her to be his wife or not which she knows that he does. His care said it all to her. He may not fall in Love with her like she did but he had nd always care for her

 

“So what’s there in Lunch?” Maan’s voice broke her thoughts nd she wiped the tear that had formed at the corner of her eyes due to happiness.

 

“Palak Paneer, Chapati nd Rice along with your favourite Russian Salad.” Geet said as she serves the food nd sat beside him

 

“Wow! My favourite. Waise Geet I didn’t understand one thing last night also you had made my favourite dish nd today also. wats the matter ha?” Maan said nd winked at her chuckling nd Geet’s heart missed several beats

 

“I wish I could ever tell you why all your things matter to me the most.” Geet thought as she saw him taking first bite but she frowned wen he stopped in mid.

 

“Where’s your plate Geet?” Maan asked as he saw here just sitting without plate.

 

“Wo� I already had my lunch back home.” Geet lied don’t know why. Probably she just wanted to relish the moment Maan having lunch without any disturbance.

 

“How many tymes do I need to tell you that you are a horrible liar? Nd moreover I know that you never ate until you make sure that I had taken my food so stop lyieng to me now.” Maan said nd fed the first bite to her. Geet was surprised with his sudden act. Though it as not the first tym he had fed her like this, he had done the same thing before too but she can’t ignore the sensation she felt now wen he fed her.

 

“Now that’s like a good girl. Now c’mon have your lunch now. Afterall I too want a company” he said nd chuckled

 

“Maan, can I have in your plate only.” Geet said out of blue surprising Maan

 

“I mean I forgot to bring extra plate. If you don’t mind” Geet lied nd Maan could see the uncomfortableness in her back.

 

“Ofcourse not Geet. Here have it.” Maan said as he forwarded her his plate nd Geet took a first bite but instead it having herself she fed Maan returning the favour. Maan felt so blessed with her this cute gesture.

 

Both have their Lunch in silence while stealing glances of each other. Geet can never be this much happy like she’s wen Maan is around her. Probably he didn’t realize what his mere presence does to her. How special she felt with his these small gestures. Since the moment she had realized her feelings for him, she had submitted each nd every fiber of herself to him only. Her own choice, own likes even her own life doesn’t matter to her anymore all what matters to her is just Maan nd only Maan; her husband, her first nd only love, her everything. Though she didn’t know that whether that day will ever come or not wen probably Maan could also reciprocate her feelings but she knows that her Love for him will never be less at any circumstances. She is his nd will always be his only nd nothing in this world can change this reality.

 

Their lunch was a quiet affair with Maan nd Geet stealing glances of each other. Actually it was Maan who was relishing the food while Geet was just taking one or two bites in between as she was busy admiring her handsome husband who is yet oblivious from her feelings. Her trance was broken wen she saw Maan getting up from the couch nd that’s wen she realize that Maan had already finished with his food. She immediately looked down at her plate to prevent from being by him for staring at him like this. Maan went to washroom to wash his hands nd Geet let go the breath that she was holding till now.

 

She hits her head playfully for behaving like a Love struck teenager wenever he’s around her but wat can she do wen this is her first tym. I mean she didn’t have the experience how to behave wen you are in Love. Till now she had seen or heard about Love in the movies only but now she realize how different nd beautiful the feeling Love is wen it happens in real. It was much more divine nd blissful then what she saw in movies. Her Love for Maan is pure nd selfless nd it’ll remain like this for whole of her lyf, she thought as she puts back the Tiffin nd other stuffs back in the bag.

 

While keeping the Tiffin in the bag she accidentally hits her finger in her eye which had started causing burning sensation in her eye as her finger still had remainants of the masala of the curry.

 

“Aah!” She gasped out as her eyes started to begin watery nd she find it difficult to even open them properly.

 

But before she could rub those tears she felt someone fingers on her cheeks wiping them. She doesn’t have to open her eyes to know who it is as she can recognize his touch even with her closed eyes. It was none other den Maan nd the mere realization that he’s yet again by her side wen she needed him had brought the sweet smile on her face

 

“Geet what happen? Y your eyes are getting watery?” Maan’s voice brought her back from her thoughts nd she realized that she had got in hurt in her eyes

 

“Wo I accidently hit my finger in my eye nd due to remainants of curry in it its burning now.” Geet said as she raised her hand to rub her eye but Maan stopped her hand in mid

 

“Wat are you doing? While rubbing like this your eyes will itch more. Come with me” Maan said as he holds her hand nd slowly guided her towards the washroom

 

“Maan it’s really burning very much. Nothing will happen to my eyes Na. See my eyes are very precious to me. You know Bade papa says that they are the best feature of my face nd if anything happens to them Na den I cant be proud on myself anymore.” Geet ranted all along the way towards the washroom while Maan just rolled his eyes seeing her making issue of such a small thing. But one thing that he can’t deny is that her eyes are indeed the best feature of her face

 

“Be quiet Geet. It’s not that big that you are making issue of. It’ll be fine once u’ll wash your eyes. Nd anyways who asked you put Ur finger in your eyes. Are you trying to feed your eyes too?” Maan said sarcastically while Geet just twisted her lips.

 

In the mean while both reached in washroom nd the first thing that Maan did was to wash her fingers properly. Once done with her finger Maan gently sprinkle water on her eyes to reduce the burning sensation in dem. Geet tried to open her eyes but due to burning sensation she was not able to open it properly. Maan washed her eyes properly with water nd den led her outside the washroom gently. Once they were outside the washroom Maan noticed that Geet was still having problem in opening her eyes as she was continuously blinking her eye lashes.

 

“Geet is it still burning.” Maan asked in concern to which Geet just nodded innocently.

 

Maan gently removed her hand that she had put on her eyes nd Geet just stiffened wen she felt him so close to her. She felt his warm breath on her face nd unknowingly her hand crept up all the way along his chest nd she clutched shoulder tight for support. She could feel her knees getting weak nd turning to jelly as she felt his face just mere inches away from hers even from her closed nd as a result her grip on her shoulders tightened in order to not to fall. Maan looked at her closed eyes for a while nd den leaned more close to her face nd started blowing air on her eyes gently. By every passing second Geet was feeling more nd more weak. His mere presence was enough to make her go insane nd here he was so close to her nd his warm breath all over her face just arousing desires in her. Just an inch more nd she could feel his lips against hers. She was melting like a candle by every passing minute nd she felt like she’ll faint any moment in his arms.

 

Maan’s condition was not less. He was trying his best to focus on her eyes only but seeing her angelic face so close to her with her eyes closed was making it difficult for him by every passing minute. He don’t know what’s happening with him but now-a-days wenever Geet is around him all his rational nd logical thoughts flew out of the window nd he just felt like devouring her right den nd dere. But next moment realization hits her nd he felt guilty on his sinful thoughts. But no matter how hard he tried he could never stop these thoughts arousing in his mind. Probably it was because he knows that he’s married to her nd its all natural to have these thoughts for his wife but whatever the reason is he needs to control himself. But no matter how many tymes he reminds this thing to himself but wenever she was dis much close to him he forgets each nd every thing just like now. Yet he was trying his best to not to kiss those rosy lips which were just mere inches apart from his. He felt her grip on his shoulders tight almost digging her nails on his skin over cloth nd it was just adding to his misery. He was getting all sort of wild thoughts for her with this touch of hers. Only he knows how he was controlling himself till now nd probably she don’t have any idea of his condition. He blowed air on her face for a while nd den gently pulled back not trusting himself anymore

 

“Geet, is it still burning?” She heard Maan’s husky voice laced with concern nd she slowly opened her eyes only to meet his dark ones.

 

Her voice got struck in his throat wen he saw his eyes full of desires just like she saw in the morning nd her heart skipped million beats just by looking at them. Maan didn’t realize wen his hand encircled her waist nd pulled her close to himself while still looking at her deep hazel eyes. Geet clutched his shoulder more tight in order to control her own desires. Maan noticed her wet locks due to washing her face kissing her cheeks nd unknowingly he raised his hand nd gently pushed those wet curls behind her ears caressing her soft skin with the back of his fingers in the process.

 

Geet just closed her eyes drowning in the blissful world of her husband. This is not the first tym that he had touched her but Everytym he touched her she felt the same current coursing throughout her body just like now wen she felt Maan caressing he sensitive spot behind her ear with his fingers. Suddenly she started feeling shortage of air due to the masculine scent of Maan that hits her nostrils nd her lips parted on her own for the intake of some oxygen unknown of the impact of this act of hers on Maan. Maan tightened his grip around her waist to control his desires of not devouring those petals then nd there.

 

But before he could do anything further both heard the click of opening of the door bringing both of them out from their blissful world. Dey instantly pulled back from each other nd straightens themselves. Geet just looked other side feeling shy. She could still feel her cheeks burning nd she swore that Maan will notice the red color on her cheeks. Taking a deep breath she turned around nd looked at the direction where Maan was looking only to find Vidyut standing over dere with a disgusted face. Probably he had seen both of them together while entering in the room. She saw Maan heading towards him nd she quietly followed him without meeting her gaze with Vidyut. But least she knows that Vidyut had witnessed much more then she thought of to be.

 

Vidyut had came to office to meet Maan to know what the actual relationship between Maan nd Geet is wen he stopped dead in his tracks near his cabin. He goes near the blinds nd saw Maan nd Geet together. Geet was clutching Maan’s shoulder tight while Maan’s face was leaned towards her. From where he was seeing it seems that Maan was kissing Geet nd the mere sight made him feel disgusted. He still can’t believe that Maan could move on in his life so easily wen he claimed to be in Love with Sameera so madly. He was lost in his thoughts wen he saw Maan tightening his grip around Geet’s waist nd pulling her towards him. his grip n the blinds get tightened wen he saw Maan plying with her curls while they were lost in each other’s eyes nd this was enough to break the last straw of control he had nd he just barged in his cabin without even knocking breaking their blissful moment.

 

“Hey Vidyut! Wat a pleasant surprise? How come you are in my office today?” Maan’s voice broke Vidyut’s thoughts nd he averts his gaze from Geet towards Maan.

 

“Nothing just thought of paying a visit to my friend but I think I disturb you guys.” Vidyut said sarcastically while eyeing at Geet nd she just hides herself behind Maan.

 

“Hey it’s nothing like that. Wo actually something had got into Geet’s eyes so I was just helping her.” Maan reasoned himself unknown of the rage in Vidyut’s heart

 

“Ya ofcourse.” Vidyut said with a fake smile not believing on a word said by Maan.

 

“Ummm Maan you carry on I am leaving.” Geet said not able to bear Vidyut’s venom filled gaze on her

 

“Wait Geet! I am going to KM only. I’ll drop you.” Vidyut offered making Geet shuddered because right now she knows that it’s not safe to be with Vidyut alone.

 

“Ummm� no I am not going to KM actually. I am thinking to meet Bade Papa nd Badi Maa today as it’s been long since I met them so I’ll go to meet them first.” Geet came out with a best excise she can at this point of tym

 

“Ok so no problem I’ll drop you over dere nd den will leave to KM” Vidyut said yet again not in mood of giving up.

 

“It’s ok Vidyut. I’ll drop Geet over dere. You don’t have to go out of route for that. Moreover I too haven’t met Maa nd Papa from long so I’ll meet them also” Maan said before Geet could say anything nd Geet silently thanked him for saving her from this situation. Vidyut had no other option but to let go as Maan seems to be adamant to drop Geet at her home. He just clenched his fist nd smiled weakly at both of them.

 

“Ok den since you are insisting this much. In that case I guess I should take your leave now as you guys also have to go. I’ll see you both in KM.’ Vidyut said with a fake smile nd leaves from dere bit not before giving a look to Geet to which she just looked other side.

 

“Chale Geet.” Maan’s voice made her look towards him nd she realized what lie she had said just now in order to save from going with Vidyut.

 

“Maan you don’t have to bother for it, I mean I’ll go with Driver.” Geet said knowing how precious Maan’s tym to him is.

 

“Don’t be silly Geet. I said I’ll come with you. I seriously want to meet Maa nd Papa. Nd anyways I am not busy much now so I can accompany you.” Maan said with a smile while Geet looked at him with her mouth opened. This is for the first tym she was hearing from him that he’s not busy much but her heart danced in joy wen he said that he’ll accompany her to her house so without protesting much she just followed him outside the cabin.

 

**********************************************************

 

Maan found Geet unusually quiet towards their journey to her home. It was as if something was bothering her. Nd it was not wrong as Geet was really tensed due to Vidyut. Though wenever she was with Maan she just forgets every other thing including Vidyut but she can’t ignore the fact that Vidyut is not the thing t be ignored. The way he looked at her with his raged eyes nd speak to her with her venom filled voice scares her. She really had to do something before the ashes of his hatred nd misconception burn the small blissful world of her with her Maan. But in the amidst of all this most important is that she haven’t told anything to Maan yet. Though Savy had asked her not to tell anything to Maan now but she knows that hiding this fact from him can make the situation worse.

 

But she don’t even know how Maan will react wen she’ll tell him about Vidyut. Will he believe her or like Vidyut he too feels that she’s lyieng. She immediately whacked herself mentally as this thought crossed her mind. How can she even think that Maan won’t believe her? In these 5 months she knows him this well. But Vidyut is his best friend den will he believe her then Vidyut. As Savy said Vidyut can try to manipulate the situation den can Maan will believe her den also. She was fighting between her heart and mind which were telling her two different opinions. Her heart was urging him to tell Maan everything while her mind was stopping her from doing so. The sudden break in the car break her trail of thoughts nd she turned her head to look at Maan who was looking at her with a frown on his face.

 

“Maan, why did you stop the car? Have we reached?” Geet asked still not looking around her

 

“No Geet, we haven’t reached yet. I stopped car because I wanted to ask you something.” Maan said while looking at her sincerely while Geet just looked at him trying to comprehend what he wanted to ask.

 

“Geet, I know in what circumstances we got married but that doesn’t change the fact that we can share with each other the thing bothering us. Nd I had told you this thing many tymes that you can share with me whatever is bothering you. Haven’t I?” Maan said slowly to which Geet just nodded in yes.

 

“Den what is bothering you so much Geet that you are not able to tell me. I am noticing you from so long you are lost somewhere. Wat happen? Did someone said something to you?” Maan said nd Geet felt her eyes getting watery seeing him understanding her unspoken words. She took a deep breath before saying to anything to Maan

 

“Maan, actually there’s a problem. Wo actually dere’s a friend of mine who had got married recently. It was an arranged marriage nd both of them had got married for someone else’ happiness nd trying their best to cope up with their marriage. Nd as the tym passes she starting falling in Love with her husband but she was afraid to tell him as she knows that her husband can’t love her because he was in Love with someone else but yet my friend loves him unconditionally. But hell broke on her wen someone entered in their lives. He was her husband’s best friend nd had proposed to my friend before her marriage. He didn’t know about her marriage till the tym he saw her wither husband. My friend had never felt anything apart from friendship for that man but still he feels that she had betrayed him. She tries to make him understand the fact that she haven’t loved him nd in wat circumstances she got married but he was nowhere to listen to her. Now my friend is afraid as wat will happen if he’ll tell everything to her husband. She’s insanely in Love with her husband nd she don’t want to lose him. But she was afraid that will her husband believe her over his best friend. So she asked me to tell her wat she should do now so I was just thinking that only.” Geet told Maan whatever bothering her on the pretext of her friend nd Maan just listened to her thoughtfully

 

“Geet, the problem is really critical. Because at the one hand where her husband didn’t know anything about your friends feelings at the same tym he didn’t know about wat happened in her lyf too. Nd as you said that your friend don’t know about her husbands feelings so in that case your friend’s hesitation is quiet obvious. But Geet trust is the base of every relationship. U said your friends really Loves her husband very much so in that case I would suggest that she should just trust her husband nd tell him everything. See I know that it wont be easy but if she’ll tell him everything calmly nd without hiding any fact then he’ll definitely understand her. Nd den they both can talk to his friend together nd try to clear his misunderstanding nd like this his friend can also understand that probably it’s better if he should stay out of their lives. In the mean while try to clear the misunderstanding of his friend also but above all she should trust her husband nd tell her everything before truth comes in front of him in a drastic manner.” Maan explained each nd every fact to Geet while Geet just looked at him without blinking her eyes.

 

How easily he had cleared all her fears nd restlessness nd filled her heart with new courage. Now she was determined that she’ll tell Maan each nd every thing without caring how will he react because she loves him truly nd trust him with all her heart therefore she knows that wen she’ll tell him everything he’ll understand her nd will be by her side like always. But right now its not right tym to tell him everything. She needs to prepare herself before telling him everything so that she could tell him everything without any fear or hesitation.

 

“By the way who is this friend of yours who is stuck up in such a critical problem?” Maan’s voice broke her thoughts nd she immediately looked down hiding her feelings for him.

 

“Wo�. You don’t know him. She’s my friend from college. We don’t talk much but few days before she met me accidently so she told me about her problem.” Geet lied while looking down because she knows that he’ll easily catch her lie if she said while looking at him.

 

“Ok. Don’t worry everything will be fine. Just tell your friend to do wat I said nd den all problems will be solved ok. So now just leave all the worries nd just smile. You didn’t look good with that worried face of yours.” Maan said nd Geet smiled widely listening to his remark

 

“That’s like a good girl. Always smile like this only Geet. It just adds charm in your beauty.” Maan said in a trance nd Geet heart did a summersault listening to his open confession. This is probably for the first tym he had complimented her nd automatically her cheeks turned red. Maan too realizes what he said just now nd he just looked other side feeling awkward.

 

“Ummm I guess we should go now or else will get late.” Maan said after a while in order to remove the awkwardness to which Geet just nodded slowly nd dey both drove towards her home.

 

**************************************************************

 

Days went by nd so did weeks. It’s been a month now since Vidyut had came to KM. his behaviour towards Geet didn’t changed as he still feels that Geet betrayed him Though he had overheard Dadimaa talking to Dev regarding Maan nd Geet’s marriage where he came to know that Geet was saying true yet the closeness he saw in Maan nd Geet’s relationship was something which was unacceptable by him.

 

Geet tried her best to talk to Maan in this 1 month but Maan was really held up with his new project nd Geet didn’t got chance to talk to him. therefore she decided that she’ll tell everything Maan once he’ll be free from this project. It was getting difficult now for her to hide everything from Maan but she decided to wait for some more tym as she didn’t wanted to disturb Maan in such an important project. By every passing day her feelings for Maan getting more nd more strong nd the irony is that she can’t even tell him. She seldom use to talk to Sameera’s pic telling her what’s in her heart nd how she’s feeling just like she use to do wen Sameera was alive. She had always heard that one-sided Love pains a lot but today she’s experiencing it but strangely she likes this pain rather then bearing Maan’s distance.

 

On the other hand things were getting difficult for Maan too. With each passing day he was getting more nd more attracted towards Geet. He tried his best to distance himself from her but failed. He tried his best to control his own emotions for her but he failed. It was getting difficult for him to stay far from Geet wen she was so close to him. Day by day his desires for her overtook his mind nd all his rational thoughts nd in that vain he often do something which he feels is not right in their relationship as he still feels that he cant feel something like this for Geet like he once felt for Sameera. Torn between his desires nd his rational thoughts he decided to distance himself from Geet but one look at her bewitching eyes nd he forgets every other thing because last thing he wants to see in those eyes was sadness nd she knew though she’s out spoken yet she won’t tell anything that was bothering her except him so he decided to keep his emotions in check around her in which he gets failed although yet he was trying his best as he don’t want to bound Geet in any kind of relationship but least he knows that Geet had already submitted her heart nd soul to him nd was eagerly waiting for the day wen he’ll accept her nd make her his in every sense.

 

It was one such day wen Geet had again gone to Maan’s office with his lunch. That day also Maan left early for office so Geet had gone to his office with their Lunch again. Wen she reached office she found Maan is in his meeting again so she decided to wait in his cabin. She had just entered his cabin nd was admiring his chair like before only wen he heard the knock at the door. She politely asked the person to come in only to find a man in his late twenties in business attire entering inside the cabin.

 

As soon as that Man entered in cabin he stopped dead in his track seeing such an angelic beauty clad in blue suit in front of him. Automatically his pupils dilated in desires as he was all lost in her beauty. She had wore no revealing clothes yet she was looking ravishing nd sexy. He couldn’t say anything since his eyes fell on her nd all he could just do is to stare at her from top to bottom. His hands itched to feel that soft milky white skin of hers.

 

Geet felt uncomfortable with the gaze of this stranger. She had never seen this man before but thinking him to be one of Maan’s clients she can’t be rude to him too. Though she didn’t like the way he was looking at her as lust was clearly evident in his eyes but she can’t do anything right now except praying to god to send Maan soon.

 

“Ummm how can I help you?” Geet asked after a while trying to lighten the atmosphere.

 

“Ummm actually I came to meet Mr. Khurana” he replied still not averting his gaze from her.

 

“Wo�. he’s in meeting you can wait over here for a while.” Geet said as she tried to move outside the cabin.

 

“Hey that’s no problem. You can give me company until Mr. Khurana shows up.” He said as he advanced towards her with a nasty smile nd Geet just shivered in fear as she read his intentions. But before he could say or do something Geet saw Maan entering inside the cabin nd within no tym she just rushed towards him.

 

“Maan” She whispered in fear while clutching his arm tight as she took a sigh of relief seeing him in front of her. Maan was not ready for this sudden act of hers. First of all he was not expecting Geet in the office nd secondly he didn’t understand y she was trembling this much.

 

“Geet wat happen? Are you fine?” Maan asked while placing his hand over hers to which Geet just looked at the direction where that Man was standing nd Maan just followed her gaze only to find his most loyal nd most cunning Business rival Vikram Agnihotri standing over dere.

 

Vikram was the most loyal competitor of Maan as he had his eye on everything that Maan had. He was also a big businessman as Maan but the only difference is that he can use illegal ways also in order to get wat he wants nd dis was something unacceptable to Maan. therefore he never likes his presence near him but it seems that Vikram loves to irritate Maan with his presence nd he always visits Maan wenever KC gets any new project in order to take it under his company. It took no tym for Maan to understand that he must have done something which had terrified Geet this much.

 

“Oh Mr. Vikram! It’s a pleasant surprise to see you.” Maan said as he slowly advanced towards her still holding Geet’s hand which was clutching tightly his arm

 

“Wat to do Mr. Khurana? It’s my habit you know to congratulate you on every achievement on yours. Afterall I am such a loyal competitor of yours.” Vikram said smirking nd Maan clenched his fist tight to not kill him right den nd dere.

 

“Anyways I was just wondering where were you wen I haven’t saw you nd I guess I had scared your secretary very much in that vain.” He said while eyeing towards Geet to which she just pressed herself more close to him.

 

“She’s Geet Maan Singh Khurana, my wife not my Secretary.” Maan said proudly nd he swore that he saw the smile on Vikram’s face wiping off

 

“Oh! Nice to meet you, Mrs. Khurana.” Vikram said after a while extending his hand towards her. Geet was reluctant at first but then gently shakes her hand with his. But her eyes widens in shock wen he squeezed her hand tight in his. She immediately pulled away her hand from his grip nd looked other side.

 

Maan too look at the exchange of the gestures nd he felt his blood boiling seeing Vikram’s lusty eyes on his wife. Suddenly he felt a feeling of possessiveness in him seeing someone else eyeing his wife. It took all his self control to not to kill Vikram den nd dere. To say that he was jealous was an understatement as he was feeling something more then that. Nd his rage increased ten times wen he saw Geet’s terrified face but before he could do something Geet had pulled away her hand from his grip.

 

“Well Mr. Vikram we would like to take your leave now. We have to go somewhere urgently.” Maan said while holding Geet possessively while putting his arm around her shoulders

 

“Well, as you wish. See you at the reception party of Mr. Raichand tonight. I hope you are coming.” Vikram said though not wanting to leave

 

“Ya ofcourse but only if you allow us to leave.” Maan said sarcastically giving a lop sided smile.

 

“Ya sure. See you in the party too Mrs. Khurana.” Vikram said but Geet easily sensed the hidden meaning behind those words but she knows that she don’t have to fear until her Maan is with her.

 

“Geet are you fine. Just ignore that fellow. He can’t do anything until I am with you.” Maan asked as soon as Vikram left from there

 

“I am fine Maan. Don’t worry.” Geet assured him while giving him her all tym sweet smile

 

“Geet do you really wanted to go in the party tonight I mean that Vikram will also be present in the party” Maan asked as he still haven’t forgotten the look at Geet’s face.

 

“Maan I said na that I am fine. And if we won’t go in the party den Dev, Vicky nd Annie won’t go too for the party. Even Dadimaa is not here nd Raichands are our old Family friends. They won’t like if no one from our family will go for the party.” Geet tried to explain him but Maan was still apprehensive.

 

“But Geet…..”

 

“Maan, I don’t have to fear for anything until you are with me. Now please don’t say anything else.” Geet interrupted in between nd Maan sighed giving up but he had made a mental note that he won’t allow Vikram to be near Geet around 10 cm of her vicinity. Geet had trusted him this much nd he’ll do everything to live upto her trustThinking this he just smiled at her warmly to which she just smiled back nd dey both headed towards home to get ready for the party tonight.

 

“You are going to wear this for the party?” Savy asked as she gave a look to Geet’s suit.

 

“Ya wats wrong with the suit.” Geet said looking at her simple yet elegant suit

 

“Wrong? Pls tell me what’s right in this? For god sake Geet you are not Geet Handa anymore, you are Geet Maan Singh Khurana now nd to cry out loud this is for the first tym after your marriage that you nd Jiju are making public appearance so atleast dressed according to that.” Savy chided her nave friend nd Geet’s cheeks turned into darkest shade of red as she realized wat Savy was saying is true nd the mere realization has made her heart danced in joy. The thought that today the whole world will recognize her as Maan’s wife was enough for her to feel butterflies running in her stomach. Savera rolled her eyes seeing her best friend hopelessly in Love that by the mere name of her husband she started blushing

 

“Geet, for heaven sake come out from your dream world nd lets select what you are going to wear today.” Savera loud voice broke Geet’s thoughts nd she twisted her lips seeing Savera breaking her thoughts regarding her Maan to which Savy just rolled her eyes nd started searching something best for her.

 

After an hour of searching both agreed on a net Turquoise Saree with light work of embroidery. The Saree was with simple work yet it looked elegant nd Geet instantly agreed on it knowing that how Maan like simple nd elegant things. Nd anyways she herself doesn’t believe in artificiality so she decided to be simple. She just applied a layer of Kohl in her eyes nd Lip gloss on the name of Make up. Her own natural beauty was enough to make her look out of world. She puts Diamond danglers on her ears on the name of jewellary. And finally she puts Mangalsutra round her neck nd Sindoor on her forehead which just added more charm in her beauty. Afterall her Sindoor nd Mangalsutra are the symbol of her relationship with Maan. It indicates that she belonged to her Maan nd only Maan, therefore it had to make her look more beautiful. No other jewellary in this world could make her look this beautiful as her Mangalsutra nd Sindoor did no matter how much expensive they can be.

 

She looked herself in the mirror only to find the most beautiful woman in this world looking back at her. She smiled after giving a scrutinizing gaze to herself making sure that she had dressed well nd Maan would like it wen he’ll see her. She blushed hard wen she thought how Maan would react wen he’ll see her like this. She still haven’t forgotten the day after her marriage wen Maan was looking at her unblinkingly en she was dressed in a blue Saree for going to her house. How her heart did a summersault wen she felt Maan’s intense gaze on her. At that tym she was too nave to understand her own feelings but now she knows y Everytym she felt different wenever Maan was near him nd the mere realization made her heart skips its beats million tymes. The mere mention of Maan’s name was enough to make her heart flutter. Nd here she’s going to make a public appearance with Maan for the first tym after their marriage. From today whole world will recognize her as Maan’s possession nd the mere thought was giving her goosebumps in her body.

 

She didn’t realize for how long she stood in front of mirror staring at her reflection until her cell phone beeped breaking her trance. She looked at the caller only to find “Vicky” Calling.

 

“Hey Bhabhi! All ready to go with Bhai.” Geet heard Vicky’s voice from the other side as soon as she answered the call making her blush.

 

“I am ready Vicky. Are you guys ready?” Geet answered after a while calming her racing heart.

 

“Ready? We are already on our way Bhabhi.” Vicky said as a matter of fact nd Geet gasped in shock.

 

“You guys are on ur way? But how will I come then. You all should inform me before leaving.” Geet said in panic not giving any chance to Vicky to speak.

 

“Bhabhi Relax! How can you think that we’ll leave you alone? I just wanted to say that me, Savera, Annie, Dev Bhai nd NT Bhabhi are on our way. You are going to come with Maan Bhai ‘alone’.” Vicky explained giving stress on the word ‘alone’ nd Geet instantly blushed hard as she realize wat Vicky had just said.

 

“Wat Bhabhi? I thought that you’ll thank me for giving a quality tym to you Love Birds but instead of praising me you misunderstood me. It hurts.” Vicky said mischievously in a faking hurt voice while Geet just rolled over her eyes.

 

“Shut up Vicky! Just wait until I meet you den see what I’ll do.” Geet said sternly while Vicky just chuckled

 

“We’ll see that Bhabhi. Till then enjoy Ur tym with Bhai ‘alone’. There will be no one to disturb you guys. Bye See you in the party.” Vicky said nd cuts the call before Geet could say anything else.

 

Geet just stood over dere motionless for a while trying to register Vicky’s words. Did he just said that she nd Maan are going together ‘alone’. O God! Already she was feeling nervous to go in front of Maan like this nd on top of it she has to go with Maan ‘alone’. She don’t have to guess whose master mind it could be behind all this. It could be none other then her best friend Savera who must be now dancing in victory making her stuck up in this situation. Geet closed her eyes nd took deep breaths in order to calm her racing heart explaining herself countless tymes that this is not the first tym she nd Maan are going somewhere alone. They had gone alone many tymes before therefore there’s nothing to worry about it yet her traitor heart was beating like it just did a marathon. She kept her hand on her heart to calm down its erratic heartbeats but nothing is working.

 

Finally she managed to compose herself a bit wen she realized that Maan must be waiting for her downstairs nd she was standing over here in front of the mirror for god knows how long. She mentally whacked herself for her foolishness nd immediately headed outside her room taking her purse nd mobile calming down her racing heart.

 

***********************************************************

 

Here Maan was waiting for Geet near his car from past 30 mins but it seems that his wife was taking her own sweet tym to get ready. It’s strange because knowing Geet he knows that she never took this much tym to get ready. Is she ok, he thought as worry start to cloud over his heart. He still haven’t forgotten the office incident in the noon. How much scared she was due to that leech Vikram. Probably she must be worried or scared due to that. He must go nd check to see if she’s fine. Thinking this he just turned to go inside the house wen the sight he saw in front of her made him rooted at its place. He saw Geet stepped out of the house adjusting her Saree nd den every other thing didn’t seem to matter any more.

 

Maan just stood over dere mesmerized looking at the epitome of beauty in front of him clad in a Turquoise Saree coming towards him. “Beautiful” was the first word that came from his mouth which was more as a whisper. All the while her eyes were just fixed on the ground as if it was the most fanaticizing thing in the world. she had done minimal make up nd had just wore her Mangalsutra nd diamond Danglers in her ears on the name of Jewellary yet she looks breath taking nd she had definitely taken his breath away with her simple yet scintillating beauty. But wat caught his attention was the pinch of Sindoor on her forehead marking her as his possession. He didn’t realize wen Geet came near him nd stood in front of him with her eyes casted down. World around Maan doesn’t seems to exist anymore as his gaze was just fixed on the beauty in front of him.

 

To say that he was numb at that moment would be an understatement as he was totally spellbound with the beauty in front of him. Geet lifted her eyes for a while nd Maan saw her eyes covered with just a layer of kohl highlighting her already Deep hazels. Maan’s gaze moved to her quivering lips from her eyes which were decorated only with Pink Lip gloss making her rosy lips even more beautiful. Apart from these two she didn’t applied anything as a makeup yet she was looking out of this world with her simple nd natural beauty. To say that she was looking Beautiful would be an understatement as she was looking divine in her simple yet breathtaking attire. Today definitely the whole world is going to get jealous of him as the most beautiful thing in this world belongs to him.

 

Geet had just casted her eyes down since the tym she had stepped out from the house. She didn’t have it in her to look at Maan as she could feel his intense gaze on her which was burning each nd every fiber of her body. Her heart was urging her to raise her eyes nd look at the person in front of him but she was too conscious to look at him due to his burning gaze which seems to see through her soul. Finally she gave up in front of her heart nd looked up only to find her husband clad in black tuxedo looking handsome nd hot more den he use to. He was not looking less then a Greek God with his clothes sticking perfectly to his perfectly carved body. She had this sudden urge to touch him, feel him nd she could have done this also if she didn’t noticed Maan’s gaze which has now travelled down her lips from her eyes nd her cheeks turned into a darkest shade of Red realizing where he was looking at. She didn’t need any words from him to know how she’s looking. His looks said it all to her. It told her that she’s looking beautiful may be more then that.

 

Dey keep on looking at each other for what seems like eternity wen Loud shrill of Maan’s phone broke their staring session. Maan immediately looked other side nd took out his cell only to find “Annie” calling.

 

“Ya Annie!”

 

“Bhai where are you both. We all had already reached to the party. Did you guys left from there also or not?” Maan heard Annie’s voice with the noise behind her he understood that Party had already started.

 

“Ya Annie we are on our way only. Will be there soon.” Maan said nd cuts the call before Annie could say anything else

 

“Wo I think we should leave now. Everyone had already reached over dere nd waiting for us.” Maan said looking everywhere but her to which Geet just nodded slightly nd move towards the car door. Maan took a deep breath to calm his bated breath due to his stunning wife before getting inside the car nd drove off towards his destination.

 

****************************************************

 

After a drive of whole 45 mins they finally reached the venue. Hole drive towards the venue was silent with Maan nd Geet stealing glances of each other tym to tym but then immediately looked other way wen they found other one caught them staring. No matter how hard they tried but they couldn’t able to take their eyes off each other. Geet was continuously fidgeting with the edge of her Saree pallu in nervousness while Maan was finding it hard to concentrate on road than on Geet. Everytym her bangles tinkled Maan felt like someone had played the sweet cords of the melody. Many tymes he found her pushing back the strands of her silky hair behind her ears nd his hands itched to do that for her nd feel that soft skin of her cheeks nd ear but somehow he control his urge to do that nd as a result his grip on the steering wheel gets tightened in order to control the desires coursing in his body. The faint nd mesmerizing scent of her body filled the whole car was just igniting the flames of Desire in him nd he just tightened his jaws to get a grip on his emotions so that he won’t do something stupid.

 

Geet’s condition was not less. She never found this much difficult to sit beside him like she was feeling now. An unknown sensation was coursed through her veins wenever she found him staring at her nd she immediately looked other side in order to hide her blush which crept Everytym he looked at her with his intense gaze. His masculine scent hits her nostrils making her thoughts go wilder nd wilder for her own husband. She immediately remembered of the Advertisement of that famous Men’s Deo which just drives every girl crazy nd currently her condition was not less then those desperate bimbos in the advertisement as she wanted to hug Maan tight nd feel each nd every part of his body breathing his strong Masculine scent in the process. She immediately whacked herself mentally for thinking so erotic for her husband. Literally her thoughts had become very much shameless now-a-days for him. But what can she also do wen the Greek God is sitting just beside him nd all she could do is just to stare at him. In process to calm herself, she sometimes fidgets with the edge of her Saree pallu nd sometimes push her strand back to calm all the wild desires coursing in her body.

 

Their world of desires for each other broke wen Maan stopped the car with a sudden jerk as they reached the venue. They both looked at each other nd gave a faint smile to each other nd then immediately looked other side so that none of them could know what was going in other’s mind. Geet took a deep breath nd turned to get down the car. The moment Geet turned to get down the Car Maan’s Throat went dry looking at the sight which was not less then a treat to his eyes. Geet was wearing a sleeveless blouse which was almost backless from back nd just a small strip of cloth was holding it from back revealing the milky white skin of her back as she had moved her hairs to one side of shoulders giving a clear view of her back.

 

Maan gulped down his saliva as he felt a sudden urge in him to touch nd feel that velvety soft skin of hers. His wife had definitely planned for his death today with her innocent yet sexy look nd the worse part is that she herself is unaware of the desires she was arousing in his body with this look of hers. Maan cursed his shameless libido umpteenth tym as he felt himself getting all hard just by looking at her. He was afraid that today he’ll definitely do something stupid if he won’t keep his emotions in check. Wasn’t what was happening till now was enough that now he have to fight with himself more to keep his hands off her, he thought as he kept gaping at her direction even after she got down from car. His trance was broken wen Geet knocked at the window pain bringing him back in the real world nd this is wen he realized that he was drooling over his own wife. He pushed back his hairs nd gets down from the car giving car keys to valet to park it.

 

Every eye in the party turned to look at them as they made their grand entry inside the party hall stealing the limelight. Vicky, Savera, Annie nd Dev turned to look at the door only to find the most beautiful couple standing on the door. They admired them as they looked perfect with each other while the other women in the party were feeling jealous of Geet for her simple yet scintillating beauty while the men were getting envy of Maan for possessing such a beautiful angel which is a dream of every guy.

 

At that moment only Maan realized that every eye in the party was on them while men were drooling over his wife. He didn’t like the way they were looking at her nd a sudden sense of possessiveness took over him. And as a result Maan wrapped his arm possessively around Geet’s waist nd pulled her closer to tell the whole world that she belongs to him nd no one had right to drool over her let alone take her away from him. Geet gasped with this sudden action of Maan. She turned to look at Maan only to find him looking ahead. The look on his face said it all to Geet what was going in his mind. She was surprised to look at his possessiveness for her but she cant deny that she was feeling good being in his arms, therefore she didn’t protest nd let him hold her as they made their way inside amongst the crowd towards the couple of the evening Mr. nd Mrs. Abhay Raichand.

 

“Its good to see you in our reception party Mr. Khurana.” Abhay said while shaking his head with Maan’s while Geet just passed a smile to them.

 

“Hey I am Mr. Khurana for whole of the world but just Maan for you. Hope you haven’t forget that Abhay.” Maan said while chuckling a bit making Abhay smile widely too.

 

“Ofcourse I haven’t forgotten but since you are hell bent in stealing the lime light so even I thought to play along. Anyways meet my wife Mrs. Pia Raichand.” Abhay said while introducing Maan to his wife to which Maan just passed a warm smile.

 

“Ofcourse I know her. Your college crush right. Anyways meet my wife Mrs. Geet Maan Singh Khurana” Maan said as he proudly introduced Abhay to Geet which didn’t went unnoticed by her. She felt like being in top of the world wen Maan proudly nd affectionately introduced her as his wife.

 

“Nice to meet you Geet.” Abhay’s voice broke her trance nd she just smiled at them.

 

“Same here. Congratulations to both of you. You both are just perfect with each other.” Geet complimented the couple in front of her

 

 

“Ya, but not more then you nd Maan.” Pia complimented back only to earn a blush from Geet.

 

Maan nd Geet congratulated to both of them once again nd den left them for other guest too. All the while Maan’s hand was protectively around Geet’s waist giving goosebumps to her body but she didn’t protest neither did she want him to remove his grip as it was giving her a sense of protectiveness. But they had to pulled apart though reluctantly as they were soon joined by Vicky nd others who were just complimenting both of them together. Maan just excused himself wen Vicky, Annie nd Savera literally pounced on them asking why they got late, where they were stuck up etc etc. leaving Geet alone to handle the situation which she did tactfully making everyone believe that they got stuck up in traffic nd everyone got convinced also except Savera who was smirking mischievously at her.

 

“So, how was the ride? Hope you didn’t got a hard tym with Jiju around” Savera spoke mischievously wen she was sure that Vicky nd Annie were not noticing them only to earn a glare from Geet.

 

“You Devil. You had planned all this Na. You knew it very well that I was suppose to go with you nd Vicky while Annie was suppose to go with Maan but you changed everything nd didn’t even let me know. Do you had any idea how hard it was for me to sit beside him wen he was looking so hot nd handsome nd nd��..” Geet trailed off as she was trying to find a perfect word to describe her husband’s features

 

“And Sexy” Savy completed her unfinished sentence hiding her smile from her

 

“Ya Sexy. He was looking smoking hot nd I was��.” Geet stopped in mid as she realized what all she was blabbering about her husband nd looked at Savera who was getting hard tym to control her laugh.

 

“O My My! Someone was really checking out her husband. Do you mind giving me more details about Jiju?” Savera said teasingly nd winked to which Geet just pouted nd looked other side but soon started laughing only to be joined by Savera later.

 

Maan though was busy in talking with his other business associates but his eyes never left Geet. He found her talking with Savera nd den laughing at something with her. He didn’t know wat they were talking about that’s so funny but he was happy to see her smiling nd laughing from her heart. The way her facial expressions changes tym to tym from pouting to cribbing to twisting her lips to smiling nd laughing just made Maan more nd more attracted towards her. She was truly an angle who could make anyone fall for her innocence, he thought as he looked at her before getting beckoned by one of his client breaking his trance.

 

********************************************************

 

Throughout the party Maan was busy with his clients nd other business associates while Geet was busy in having good tym with Vicky, Annie nd Savy. But they didn’t stop to steal glance of each other tym to tym. They just passed a warm smile to each other wenever their eyes met nd den immediately looked other side feeling shy. God knows wat got into both of them today they just cant keep their eyes off from each other. it seems that someone had drugged them with each other’s essence that they didn’t seem to notice any other thing but each other.

 

While Maan was talking to one of his client a waiter came to them to serve some hard drinks. Maan instantly looked at Geet as he reminds of something who was already looking at him trying to comprehend what he’ll do.

 

“Do you drink?”

 

“Sometimes, I mean wen I m in a party nd all”

 

“You have to quit Drinking. Becoz both me nd Di hate drinkers nd smokers”

 

Maan smiled as he remembered their conversation wen they met for the first tym nd dis is wen he understood why Geet was looking at him. He chuckled inwardly seeing her perplexed face nd politely refused to the waiter for the drinks even after insisting by his clients. Waiter just shrugged his shoulders nd left from there nd Maan got busy with his clients but not before passing a knowing smile to Geet nd she instantly looked other side blushing hard. Her heart danced in joy wen Maan refused for the drink which indicates that he still remembers wat she had said to him wen they met for the first tym. But what made her happier was that he didn’t have hard drink because she doesn’t like it; because she told him that she hates Drinkers nd smokers. She felt so touched nd special with this gesture of his that she can’t express. She felt falling for this man more nd more who just made her feel special with every gesture of his. She just kept on looking at him lovingly as he continued talking with his clients nd den goes towards the direction where Annie, Vicky nd Savera were standing.

 

********************************************************

 

The party was at full swing as everyone is busy enjoying themselves complimenting the couple of the evening. Geet was standing in a corner alone waiting for Annie to come back who had gone outside to take the call. Vicky nd Savera had gone in pretext of getting drinks but Geet knew that they must be needing some quality tym with each other so she asked them to go ahead nd enjoy with each other. Nd now here she’s standing all alone in a corner waiting for Annie. She tries to spot Maan nd go ear him as she was feeling awkward to stand alone here at the corner. She was searching for Maan only wen she heard a familiar voice from behind making her numb.

 

“Good evening Mrs. Khurana. Hope you are having a nice tym.” Geet turned to look at the direction of voice only to find Vikram standing over dere with a nasty voice plastered on his face.

 

“Mrs. Khurana I really wanted to apologize for my behaviour in the office today. It was just I don’t know how to express himself.” Vikram said while taking a step towards her eyeing her lustfully from top to bottom while Geet was just feeling sicken with his gaze.

 

“It’s ok. I understand. Excuse me I need to go to Maan.” Geet said as she tried to move away from there only to be blocked by Vikram.

 

“Relax Mrs. Khurana! Wats so hurry? I was trying to gain your attention since you guys had entered in the party but it seems that you didn’t notice anyone than your husband. Please spare some of your tym with me also or I would think that you didn’t forgive me. How about a dance together? It would be my pleasure to have a dance with this lovely lady.” Vikram said as he took one more step towards Geet extending his hand towards her to which Geet just took a step back. She was just thinking of some excuse to get away from this disgusting man but nothing was coming in her mind.

 

“I am here for that Mr. Vikram. You don’t have to bother for it.” Geet heard a familiar voice from behind nd she doesn’t have to turn to look who it was as she recognized him very well. It was one other den Maan.

 

Maan saw Geet standing alone searching for him while he was busy in talking with someone. He thought of spending sometym with her nd excused himself to go to her but stopped dead in his track wen he saw Vikram approaching towards her. His hands turned into fists wen he saw him blocking Geet’s way while Geet was trying her best to get away from him. Nd den he saw him extending his hand towards Geet nd dis was enough for Maan to loose the last strand of control he had nd he instantly rushed towards her side to save her from this disgusting man.

 

“Oh Mr. Khurana! Good to see you here. I was just asking to Mrs. Khurana to have a dance with me.” Vikram said with a fake smile cursing the timing of Maan wen he was so close to his target.

 

“Sorry Mr. Vikram but I need to take my wife away for Dance. As you could see that it’s a couple dance. So if you don’t mind pls excuse us.” Maan said as he encircled his arm around Geet’s waist protectively to which Vikram just nodded nd Maan left from there with Geet towards the dance floor before Vikram could say anything else.

 

(P.S. Pls play this song in the background)

Music�..

 

Maan left Geet’s waist as they reached near the dance floor nd looked at Geet to know that if she was ready for this or not as he didn’t asked for her consent before taking her away from there. At that moment all he was thinking is to take her away from there but now wen they reach there he was not sure whether Geet wanted this or not. He was lost in these thoughts wen he felt Geet holding her hand. He turned his head to look at her only to find him smiling which was enough for Maan to take a step ahead. He holds her hand in his gingerly nd lead her towards the dance floor nd now they were standing in the middle of the floor lost in each other’s eyes.

 

Kehte hain khuda ne

iss jahan mein sabhi ke liye
Kisi na kisi ko hai

banaya har kisi ke liye
Tera milna hai uss

rab ka ishaara maanu
Mujhko banaya tere

jaise hi kisi ke liye

Kehte hain khuda ne

iss jahan mein sabhi ke liye
Kisi na kisi ko hai

banaya har kisi ke liye
Tera milna hai uss

rab ka ishaara maano
Mujhko banaya tere

jaise hi kisi ke liye

 

As they reached at the dance floor whole world around them seems to be lost somewhere as they were lost in looking each other’s eyes. Geet gently rests her hand on Maan’s shoulders while Maan encircles his one hand around Geet’s waist bringing her closer nd with his other hand he entangled his fingers with hers nd together they start swaying with the music.

 

The moment Geet looked into his eyes she forgets every other thing nd wat all that matters to her at that moment is that Maan was holding her close to him. At that moment she felt like all her prayers getting answered as she found the person who is her soul mate in every sense. The person for whom her heart had waited since the day she had started dreaming of her prince charming. It was like she was made just for him like he was made for her. She instantly remembered of the famous line that she heard in one of her famous movie that “Someone Somewhere is made for you” nd it seems so true in her case.

 

Kuch toh hai tujhse raabta
Kuch toh hai tujhse raabta
Kaise hum jaane hume kya pata
Kuch toh hai tujhse raabta

Tu humsafar hai, phir kya fikar hai
Jeene ki wajah hi yahi marna issi ke liye

Kehte hain khuda ne iss j

ahan mein sabhi ke liye
Kisi na kisi ko hai

banaya har kisi ke liye

 

Geet don’t know what steps she was performing as it was Maan who was taking the lead while she was just following it. She was totally drugged in his Love nd everything else except him seems to be blurred now. It was as if her eyes meant to just see him nd nothing else.

 

Maan gently twirled her around nd now her back was touching his hard chest. Geet closed her eyes feeling him so close to her. it was as if she found her solace in his arms. He was her soul mate, her humsafar who was there with her wenever she needs him. Who was there to save her from all the evil things in this world. Nd for whom she won’t even hesitate to die if it costs in giving him all the happiness of this world. For she was not alone anymore as her heart nd soul had already connected to his.

 

Music� (Sa ni pa di na sa.)

 

Geet’s one hand was in Maan’s strong hand while other one was encircling around his neck as they performed each nd every step beautifully. Every other couple on the dance floor stopped to look at the most enchanting couple in the dance floor but it seems that they didn’t seem to notice the world around them for they were too lost in each other.

 

Vicky, Savera, Annie nd Dev were looking at them with the sweet smile on their faces as they were busy in swaying their bodies according the music while NT just rolled her eyes seeing their PDA. She felt like she’ll get diabetes if she keeps on looking everything so sugary around her. But there was someone who was not liking the proximity between Maan nd Geet. It was Vikram who was looking at both of them with a dangerous expression in his eyes as he was sipping his drink. But oblivious of all this Maan nd Geet was lost in their own paradise.

 

Meharbaani jaate jaate mujh pe kar gaya
Guzarta sa lamha ek daaman bhar gaya

Tere nazara mila, roshan sitaara mila
Takdeer ki kashtiyon ko, kinara mila

 

Maan was totally lost in the feel of the dance by now. if all that was happening with him since evening was not enough then this song had completed everything. It was as if each nd every lyrics was expressing the emotions he was feeling currently. He twirled Geet towards himself nd end her down like a flower. Geet felt her warm breath on her throat nd she felt like current flowing down her spine.

 

It was as if Maan was in trance which he was as no matter how hard he tries but he just couldn’t stop looking at her beautiful nd angelic face which was so close to his wen he brought her back.

 

Sadiyon se tarse hai jaisi zindagi ke liye
Teri sauhbat mein duaayein hain ussi ke liye
Tere milna hai uss rab ka ishaara
Maano mujhko banaya tere hi jaise kisi ke liye

 

Geet was feeling like at the top of the world right now having Maan so close to herself. It was as she was thirsty till now nd Maan had quenched her thirst with just his presence. She felt like screaming nd shouting telling whole world what she felt for this man. How her life has became beautiful after him coming into her lyf. it was definitely a sign of God that her heart had recognized the person who is made for her.

 

Kehte hain khuda ne iss jahan mein sabhi ke liye
Kisi na kisi ko hai banaya har kisi ke liye
Tere milna hai uss rab ka ishaara
Maanu mujhko banaya tere hi jaise kisi ke liye

Kuch toh hai tujhse raabta
Kuch toh hai tujhse raabta
Kaise hum jaane hume kya pata
Kuch toh hai tujhse raabta

Tu humsafar hai, phir kya fikar hai
Jeene ki wajah hi yahi hai marna issi ke liye

Kehte hain khuda ne iss jahan mein sabhi ke liye
Kisi Na kisi ko hai banaya har kisi ke liye�

 

 

Maan as very close to Geet, so close that she could feel his breath on her face as they were swaying nd twirling with each step but all this was giving an unknown satisfaction to both of them especially Geet who was lost in the feel of her husband. It was one of those moments that she had dreamt of nd she just wanted to capture more nd more of it for these are only things which will give her strength for whole of her lyf waiting for him to reciprocate her feelings.

 

Maan puts all her weight on his waist nd twirls her around while Geet unknowingly leans her head back on his shoulder. She felt his hot breath on her neck while he was dropping her down nd she loved the feel of it as it was just arousing her more nd more. For other it could just be a dance step but for them it was something more then that especially for Geet who was now totally lost in her husband’s love that she can’t even think of her lyf without him now.

 

But did she really have to worry for anything now wen she knew that no matter wat Maan will always be by her side be it him saving her from that leech Vikram or comforting her at Bade Papa’s illness or advising her wen she was tensed due to Vidyut. He was her soul mate in every sense just like she was his nd will always be no matter wat comes for they are “Destined To Be” nd no other thing in this world could change this beautiful reality that they are made for each other not for today, not for tomorrow but till eternity where she’ll love him like this selflessly nd he’ll care for her like this endlessly.

 

Music�..

 

As the music was diminishing the distance between their bodies also started decreasing ok if there was any nd they just kept on looking at each other’s eyes as if trying to read each other’s soul. Maan’s hands were still on Geet’s waist while Geet had rested her hands on his shoulders. They both didn’t even realize that music has been stopped long back for they both were too lost in each other. Geet was already lost in Maan but now even Maan seems to be lost in her deep hazels. This is probably for the first tym he saw some emotions in her eyes other den respect. Same emotions from which he himself was fighting every day nd night. Somewhere at the back of his mind he had accepted also that what he saw in Geet’s eyes was nothing but pure Love. The way she was looking at him all lost while her lips are curved in a sweet smile had said it all which was there in her heart. Yet he don’t want to accept the fact because he thinks that it’ll be injustice to both Geet nd Sameera because according to him no one could take Sameera’s place neither in his lyf nor in his heart. But even after all his rational thoughts nd Logics also he just can’t stop himself from not looking into her eyes nd getting drown in them. As if for that moment nothing matters to him not even his own mind which was stopping him to listen what his heart was saying.

 

On the other hand Geet was still in daze due the moment transpired between them. She can’t ignore the sense of contentment that she felt wen Maan was holding her, touching her, looking at her throughout the whole dance. For the first tym in these months Geet had find flicker of emotions in his eyes nd that emotion which she was dare to name as was Love. Her heart danced in joy as he saw his eyes reflecting the emotion which was there in her heart. She just wanted that moment to get freeze while she remains close to him like this. This was indeed the best night for her as tonight her hope that someday Maan too will reciprocate her feelings gets more strong because she had witnessed the admiration in her eyes, the possessiveness in him, the sense of protectiveness in him nd most importantly the way he was holding her throughout the dance so lovingly nd passionately, since evening. She was sure that somewhere Maan too had started feeling something for her yet she was scared to believe that because she wont able to bear if this turn out to be just a fragment of her imagination. Still she don’t know why she was having this feeling that tonight something big is going to happen, something that with the instinct of it only her heart was beating so loudly in her chest, something on which she was not able to put her finger on.

 

 

The huge round of applause broke their trance nd dey slowly part away from each other realizing that music had stopped long back; they both looked other side trying to calm their raising heartbeats due to their proximity. Geet was blushing hard wen she realized that how lost she was in Maan’s eyes while Maan was just feeling awkward to face Geet as he himself didn’t realized from how long he was lost in her. he still had no idea what spell does her eyes do to her that he always lost himself in those depths nd den every other thing in this world doesn’t seems to exist. Both looked at each other from the corner of their eyes nd den immediately looked other side smiling. Soon Savera, Vicky, Dev nd Annie joined them to compliment them on their sizzling performance.

 

“Wow Geet, Bhai you both had just rocked the dance floor. Isn’t it Vicky?” Annie said chirpily only to made Geet blush hard.

 

“Ofcourse they both are just perfect with each other. I mean no one could match their performance nd at last everyone had just left the dance floor.” Vicky complimented nd that’s wen Maan nd Geet noticed that all this while they both were alone in the dance floor nd both haven’t realized it yet.

 

“Geet, Jiju you both look awesome with each other nd the way you both had performed this dance I was just not able to put my eyes off from both of you.” Savera said to which Maan nd Geet looked at each other with Admiration in their eyes nd den again turned their attention back towards them.

 

“For that even I wanted to compliment them.” All of them heard a voice from behind nd shifted their gaze only to find Vikram standing behind with a nasty smile. Maan’s blood boils just by the sight of his but he kept quiet for the sake of Geet.

 

“I must say Mr. Khurana. You both had literally burned the dance floor.” Vikram said nd Geet moves closer to Maan as she felt his gaze on her.

 

“Thank you so much Mr. Vikram. Glad that you felt so.” Maan said non interestingly making it clear that he was not at all interested in talking to him but it seems that Vikram is hell bent on talking to them.

 

“It’s my pleasure Mr. Khurana. Nd Mrs. Khurana even you were so graceful during dance. Trust me I didn’t knew that you could dance so well.” Vikram said while eyeing Geet from top to bottom as he extends his hand towards Geet to which she just press herself more close to Maan.

 

“Thank you once again Mr. Vikram nd I guess you had complimented us enough for this evening. Nd if you have not forgotten then the couple of the evening is Mr. Nd Mrs. Raichand nd not me nd my wife. So I think they deserve more compliments from you then us. So if you don’t mind can you please excuse us?” Maan said while shaking his hand with Vikram as he noticed Geet’s uncomfortableness nd Vikram who was expecting Geet to shake hand with him was totally feeling humiliated. He thought that in this process atleast he could touch Geet for once but once again Maan had crushed all his hopes.

 

“Ya ofcourse. Carry on. I’ll catch you both later.” Vikram said while gritting his teeth with a fake smile nd left from there feeling dejected

 

“He’s so weird.” Annie said as soon as Vikram left

 

“Let it be Annie. We are not going to meet him again. Anyways Bro Dadimaa has called an hour back nd she said that she’s going to stay one more week at London as her friend is still not well.” Dev revealed the information to which Maan just nodded.

 

“By the way Jiju if you don’t mind then can I steal my friend from you for sometym please?” Savera said mischievously only to get a glare from Geet.

 

“Ya ofcourse all yours.” Maan said as he moves away form the dance floor leaving Geet for Savera but not before looking warmly at her to which Geet just looked downwards feeling shy.

 

But her trance was broken wen Savy jerk her shoulders nd winked mischievously only get whacked by Geet. Geet looked at Maan as he gets himself busy with his business associates nd den made her way towards the drinks bar along with Annie to get some drink for herself.

 

******************************************************

 

Rest of the function went well nd slowly slowly every guest started dispersing from the party. Khurana’s too decided to leave as it was quiet late. Dev nd Nayantara along with Annie had already left for KM nd Vicky nd Savy had gone outside to spend sometym alone. Geet too was searching for Maan so that they can leave home but he was nowhere to be seen infact she couldn’t able to see him from past 20 mins. She thought of checking outside thinking that he might have got a call from someone nd due to network problem he had gone outside to attend the call. Thinking this she made her ay outside the hall wen she bumped into a waiter who was coming towards her only.

 

“Oh! I am sorry. I haven’t saw you.” Geet muttered a quick apology to the waiter nd turns to go outside only to be stopped by him.

 

“Excuse me are you Mrs. Geet Khurana.” Waiter asked nd Geet looked at him confused.

 

“Yes. Why?” Geet asked with a frown.

 

“wo this letter is for you.” Waiter gave him the letter nd before Geet could ask him who had given this letter to him, he had already gone. Geet just stood there perplexed for a while nd then opened the letter

 

“I wanted to tell you something. Meet me at room no. 301” she read the content of the letter nd her heart did a flip flop after reading it.

 

She re-read it again nd it took her no tym to register that who must have send this letter to her. A sweet smile crept up on her face as she realized that Maan had sent this letter to her. He wanted to meet her alone. So that’s the reason he was not here in the party from past 20 mins because he was arranging all this. Her heart started beating fast as she tries to comprehend wat he wanted to say to her. So does that mean what she saw in his eyes during dance was not the fragment of her imagination, she thought as she slowly moves towards her destination with a sweet smile on her face.

 

Probably Maan wanted to give their marriage a chance, probably he too feels for her something nd he wanted to talk about it only thatsy he had arranged this room for them. O god! Her heart seems to come out from her rib cage due to this sudden excitement. She was already started having that jittery feeling throughout her veins. Wat will she say to him, how will she say to him what she feels for him. Lost in these thoughts she didn’t realize wen she reached towards the reception area. Once after reaching there she asked the direction for the desired room no. nd quickly headed towards the destination where her life is waiting for her.

 

She didn’t realize wen she took the elevator nd wen she reached at her desired floor nd wen she started heading towards the room. It seems that her legs had the mind of their own as they automatically carrying her towards her desired location. As she was coming close to room her heart started to beat even more nd she felt like she’ll faint any moment for she was so much ecstatic for what coming next which can be a turning point for their relationship. Her hands shivered wen she placed her hand on the door knob for opening the door. After much difficulty she calmed her racing heartbeats nd steps inside the dimly lighted room. She looked around herself only to find whole room decorated beautifully nd she was awed seeing the efforts Maan had put to make the moment special. But her eyes searched only for the person who was the sole reason for her existence.

 

“Maan�. Maan where are you?” She called out him as she looked around herself to find him but he was nowhere to be seen. Just den she heard the sound of locking the door nd she blushed, smiled nd restless all at the same tym expecting Maan to be here.

 

“Waiting for someone Mrs. Khurana?” Geet heard a familiar voice from behind nd the smile of her face started diminishing nd her eyes widens in shock as she recognize the owner of the voice yet she was scared to turn back.

 

She silently prayed to her Babaji that let it be just the part of her imagination only nd wen she turn around her Maan would be there. But it seems that her Babaji was not in the mood to listen to her plea today as her fears came true wen she turned around to look at the owner of the voice. The room was brightly lit now wen she saw at the person standing in front of her which was none other den Vikram who was looking at her lustfully with a nasty smile on his face.

 

*********************************************************

 

Here wen Maan came back to party hall the first thing he did is to search for Geet but she was nowhere to be seen. He got a urgent call from one of his important call from London so he left outside to take the call nd got engrossed in discussing the details of the project nd after half an hour or so wen he came back den Geet was nowhere to be seen. He clearly remembers that wen he left the hall den Geet was here only. He frowned as knowing Geet he knows that she never goes anywhere without telling him. He searched at each nd every nook nd corner of the hall but she was nowhere. He thought may be she’s with Vicky or Savera as they were also not in the party. He was about to call Vicky to ask him where are they wen he saw him nd Savera coming towards the entrance door where he was standing.

 

“Vicky where were you guys? Nd where is Geet?” Maan asked as soon as Vicky came near him making both Vicky nd Savera confused.

 

“Bhai, Geet Bhabhi was in the party only. me nd Savera had gone to see off NT Bhabhi nd Dev Bhai nd she said that she’ll wait for you in the hall only. Is she not inside?” Vicky said nd Maan got tensed as he could sense something dreadful.

 

“No then may be she’s in the washroom. I’ll just call her nd check. Why don’t you guys leave for home? Its pretty late nd Savy’s parents must be waiting for her.” Maan said while trying his best to sound normal but he just can’t as his heart was having this feeling that something is not right.

 

Savera didn’t got much convinced as she could easily see the tension on Maan’s face nd moreover Geet’s sudden disappearance had made her tensed too. But seeing Maan so adamant for them to leave she had no other option left with her therefore she quietly left with Vicky making a mental note that she’ll call Geet as soon as she’ll reach home.

 

As soon as Vicky nd Savera left Maan instantly tries Geet number but it was not reachable. Fear started to cloud over his heart as he tried her cell yet again nd still the same response. He even checked at the washroom also but she was not there too. Even Vikram was not present in the party which was not the thing to be ignored. Now he was 100% sure that Geet is in some sort of Danger nd the mere thought made him die thousand death. He asked several people including waiters that if they had seen her but just got disappointment from everywhere.

 

“Where are you Geet? Just be safe wherever you are.” Maan prayed silently as he came towards the corridor once again only to be get bumped by the same waiter who had given Geet that note.

 

******************************************************

 

“What are you doing over here? Where is Maan?” Geet tried to sound as normal as possible but her voice had already started shaking in the fear of wat coming next

 

“Maan? Are you kidding me Mrs. Khurana? What he’ll do over here wen I am here for you?” Vikram said as he started coming towards her dangerously while Geet just took a step back.

 

“Stop right there. Don’t come near me. ” Geet said while moving backwards terrified with his lustful gaze

 

“Oh don’t act Mrs. Khurana as if you don’t want this. You too wanted it equally as I want it thatsy you were here after reading my note.” Vikram said while smirking nd that’s wen it dawned on Geet that the note which she thought that Maan had send her was actually send by him. Her heartbeats raised in fear as she realized in what trouble she got stuck up in.

 

“Don’t be so tensed Mrs. Khurana. I won’t trouble you much. Afterall you are my guest nd it’s my duty to take care of my guest.” Vikram said breaking Geet’s trance as he came nd stand close to Geet.

 

“You know something you are really an epitome of beauty. Since the tym I saw you I just cant resist myself from thinking about you. I really feel jealous of Maan now.” Vikram said huskily as he extends his hand to stroke Geet’s cheeks to which she just jerked his hand away.

 

“Don’t you dare touch me with your filthy hands. Or else Maan will kill you.” Geet said as she felt disgusted in his presence to which Vikram laughed maniacally

 

“Maan! You are really nave Geet. You think he had this much tym to enquire about you? I doubt on it. He must be busy with some of his clients. Your husband won’t come; he’s always busy in his work. I’m sure he doesn’t even spend time with you. So why don’t I spend some time with you Mrs. Khurana” oh her name looks so disgusting from his filthy mouth. But she was sure that whatever he was saying is wrong as she had full trust on her Maan. She knows that he’ll definitely come to her rescue. She struggled to get away from her but Vikram pressed himself more close to her instead.

 

“MAAN!!!!” Geet called out his name hoping he would come nd save her from this monster to which Vikram just laughed maniaclly.

 

“Scream as much as you want Geet but no one will hear you as no one can find his here.” he said laughing maniaclly nd Geet’s eyes welled up listening to his revealation.

 

“You are so beautiful. I have been dying to touch your beautiful skin the whole day.” Vikram said as he caressed her cheeks. Geet couldn’t take this anymore. His mere touch was making her skin crawl. Tears welled up in her eyes as she struggled to get away from his grip. She was thinking about Maan, she wanted him to be here to save her from this monster. She tried to scream Maan’s name again but Vikram covered her mouth with his palm stopping her from screaming.

 

“Don’t you dare to call his name again. I wanted to hear my name from your mouth wen I am with you, wen i touch you, wen i Love you” Vikram said as he leaned dangerously close to her face squeezing her cheeks nd Geet’s eyes widens in fear anticipating his next move.

 

*********************************************************

 

Maan was searching madly for Geet outside the hall area. Since the tym he had bumped into that waiter nd information he got from him that he saw Geet going outside near the reception area wen he gave some note to her, his heart was restless. Till now if he had a tinge of doubt then it was all confirmed that Geet is in some big danger. Fear gripped in his heart as he sensed of something dreadful. He searched outside the hotel to find some trace of her but find none. He felt that his heart will stop beating if he won’t see Geet within few minutes. He pushed back his hair in frustration as she found no sign of Geet yet. He was angry, frustrated, irritated on himself to leave her alone at the first place wen that Vikram was hell bent to get a chance around her. he don’t know what to do where to find her except of praying that wherever she was she was just safe.

 

Here Geet pushed Vikram with all her might before he could lean to kiss her nd he stumbles backwards not expecting this sudden action of hers. Geet taking the opportunity tries to run away from there wen Vikram held her wrist hard stopping her from going.  She tries to free her hand from him but he made his grip tight on her hands. Just den Geet’s noticed that she was standing near the window nd that’s wen her gaze falls on Maan who was standing down facing his back towards her. a ray of hope started building in her yet again as she saw her savior in front of her eyes

 

“MA�..” Geet tried to scream Maan’s name but Vikram was quick enough to cover her mouth preventing her from screaming nd pulled her aside from the window. In that vain Geet’s hand hits the vase near the window hard nd it came crashing down all the way from the window where Maan was standing.

 

Maan heard Geet trying to call his name nd before he could understand something he saw a vase falls down beside him crashing into pieces. His sharp senses instantly sensed that there is something fishy nd he snapped his head upwards to look at the direction from where the vase has fallen but till den then Vikram had already dragged Geet aside yet Maan had seen a part of Geet’s Saree wen he was dragging her aside nd it took him no tym to register that it was Geet only. In no tym he rushes inside the hotel towards the room where Geet nd Vikram were after enquiring about the directions from the reception.

 

***********************************************************

 

“Don’t try to scream Geet as no one will help you. Just submit yourself willingly or else I won’t mind forcing you.” Vikram said as he pushed Geet away making her fall in the ground. Geet started crawling back as she found him taking steps towards her.

 

Vikram leaned on her yet again but Geet again pushes him nd tries to run away from there wen he holds her leg making her fall on the ground nd hovers over her in no tym. Yet Geet didn’t stopped struggling as he can’t let this monster impure her. Only Maan had right to touch her nd she’ll fight till her last breath if anyone else tries to touch her. She was successful in pushing him away nd runs towards the door wen she felt a tug on her Saree pallu nd she turned only to find Vikram holding it tight.

 

“Please Leave me. Don’t do this.” Geet begged as she tries to free her Pallu away from his hands but Vikram pulled her pallu harshly making it rip into half nd throws away the tore part.

 

Geet’s hands automatically covered her chest as she tries to hide away her modesty from him. Tears were rolling down her cheeks as she tried yet again to run away from him towards the door but Vikram pulled her nd throws her on the bed nd in no tym he was hovering over her yet again. Geet struggled nd screamed for help but its of no use as he had covered her mouth to prevent her from screaming as he looked at her beautiful body hungrily. Geet closed her eyes thinking that this is the end, now she can’t escape from him. Tears welled up in her eyes as she thought of her Babaji, her family, her friends nd at last her Maan. She knows that after this she won’t be able to see anyone because after that she won’t be alive yet there is a hope in her heart that Maan will definitely come.

 

“Please Babaji save me. Give me death before this monster touches me. Please do some miracle nd send my Maan. please dont let me be impure with his hands. Maan please come nd save me from him.” Geet silently prays as tears welled up in her eyes seeing him leaning close to her neck but before his lips could touch her skin she felt him getting away from her with a jerk. She instantly opened her eyes only to find her savior, her god, her Love Maan standing over dere enraged at the scene in front of him

 

Maan came running towards the floor where Geet is nd instantly spotted the room nd as he neared the room he could hear Geet’s screaming. He felt that someone had kill him wen he heard Geet screaming nd struggling to get away from him.

 

“Geet, Geet open the door.” he knocks hard but Geet couldn’t hear him as she was busy in saving herself. Having no other option he pushed the door hard nd it jerked open in two-three pushes nd he instantly runs inside nd the scene he saw in front of him had made his blood boiled. He saw Vikram hovering over Geet nd was trying to kiss her while Geet was trying hard to get away from him. He also noticed the piece of Geet’s pallu lyieng on the floor nd in no tym he pushed him away from her.

 

“Geet, are you fine?” Maan asked panting heavily as he saw Geet’s tear stricken face.

 

“Maan” Get whispered nd she hugged him tight petrified with the situation. Maan instantly hugged her back as he sensed her crying bitterly in his arms.

 

“Sshhh Geet its fine. Nothing had happened. I am here now. I’ll not let anything happen to you.” Maan said as he rubs her back in order to calm her down. He gently pulled out from hug nd wipes away the tears from her beautiful eyes nd instantly removes his coat nd wraps around her petite saving her sanity nd den he looked at Vikram angrily who was trying to get up from the ground.

 

Maan didn’t gave him chance to get up nd quickly punched him hard on his face causing him to bleed. How dare he lay his lusty eyes on Geet? He’ll kill him today nd wont even regret for it. He held his thru his collar nd jerks him towards upward nd punches him hard on his stomach. He won’t hesitate in killing him today for laying his eyes on Geet. Vikram will regret the moment he lay his eyes on Geet as today he’ll rip apart his each nd every limb away from his body then only he’ll be in peace. He keeps on hitting him, punching him hard making him lifeless. Geet was still sitting on bed looking at both of them in horror. She had never seen Maan this much angry but here it seems that he’ll kill him but she was too numb to react for anything.

 

“How Dare You? How dare you to even see her, let alone touch her?” Maan said as he keeps on punching nd kicking Vikram hard.

 

“You are beating me? Why don’t you ask your own wife what she’s doing over here with me in this hotel room?” Vikram said between his heavy breathing only to get a punch from Maan yet again.

 

“Don’t you dare to point my Wife’s character from your filthy mouth. I had full trust on her. I know that its you who had tricked her.” Maan said as he punched him hard nd he falls on ground.

 

Maan crushed his hand under his feet from which he had touched Geet nd Vikram yelled in pain. He tried to get up nd beat Maan but Maan was too strong for him nd moreover he was unstoppable today. He keeps on kicking nd punching him hard till he falls unconscious on the ground. Maan pulled him up nd punched him hard on his face. He clutched his collar nd hits her head on the nearby wall making him bleed. It seems that today he’ll stop after killing him only Geet was feeling dizzy seeing so much blood nd violence in front of her. She wanted to stop Maan but didn’t know how to stop him. As Geet’s tear stricken face came in front of Maan’s eyes he punched him even more hard.

 

“Maan!!!!” Geet screamed in horror wen she saw Maan picking up a vase to smash it on Vikram’s head. Maan instantly left Vikram who was half dead by now nd rushes towards Geet only to find her scared nd terrified. Nd its den he realized that he went too violent.

 

“Calm down Geet. Everything is fine.” He said as he rubs her shoulders to calm her down nd gently helped her to get up from bed.

 

“You have to pay for this heavily Mr. Vikram. I will not leave you so easily.” Maan thought as he looked at Vikram’s lifeless body before taking Geet away from there.

 

***************************************************

 

After whole 45 mins of drive they both reached at KM. everyone was far asleep till the tym dey reached KM. the weather was changing as it seems that it’ll rain tonight. Maan had informed Savera that Geet is fine nd is sleeping due to fatigue. Whole drive towards home was silent nd Geet didn’t said anything as she was still terrified with the incidence taken place few mins back. Maan looked at her from the corner of her eyes nd he felt like someone has squeezed his heart out seeing her in that condition but he couldn’t even form some sensible words to make her feel better. He don’t even want to think what could have been happened if he haven’t reached over dere on tym. The mere thought had made him shivered in fear den Geet had faced it all. If it was in his hands then he wouldn’t have left that Vikram alive but for the sake of Geet he left him over dere half dead but now he was unable to see Geet in that numb state.

 

They reached KM nd Maan parked the car. Geet was too numb to understand anything nd she came in her senses wen Maan had shrugged her shoulders telling that they had reached home. She slowly get down from the car holding Maan’s coat around her tightly nd goes inside the KM. Maan looked at her terrified form for a while nd den follows her holding her hand as they made their way towards their room.

 

“I can’t believe this that that Vikram could stoop so low. I’ll not let him rest in peace.” Maan said once they reached their room while removed his shirt nd vest frustratingly as he was still feeling raged towards that Vikram. He looked at Geet who was standing numb near the couch looking downwards. It didn’t have in him to see her in that state therefore he slowly goes towards her nd stands behind her.

 

“Geet, don’t think about that. Everything is fine now. Nothing has happened” Maan said softly while keeping his hand on Geet’s shoulder. Geet felt alive as soon as she felt Maan’s touch nd she instantly turned nd hugged Maan tight as much as possible much to his surprise.

 

“Aap please kabhi mujhe akela mat chodiyega. Mujhe bahut darr lagta hai.” Geet said as she sobbed pressing herself more close to him.

 

[Please don’t leave me alone ever. I feel scared]

 

Mana was not at all ready for this sudden act of Geet therefore he stood over dere shocked nd numb for a while but when he felt Geet’s tears on his chest, he draped his arms around her protectively ensuring her that she’s fine nd safe in his arms. Geet closed her eyes as soon as she felt Maan’s arms around her for she knows that nothing in this world could harm her as long as she was in his arms. They remained in each other’s arms like that for a while wen Geet gently rubbed her cheeks on his bare chest feeling him close to her. Maan’s arms around her tightened wen he felt this sudden act of Geet’s. He felt himself drowning in the world of ecstasy feeling her so close to him. Geet’s sobs has subsided by now nd her hands started caressing his bare back slowly nd gently feeling him close to her. By now Maan was totally lost in the moment nd as a result his own hands goes inside the coat she was wearing nd started caressing the bare skin of her waist slowly nd sensuously making its way up on her bare back feeling her soft skin while he dipped his face in her hairs inhaling her sweet aroma. The sweet fragrance of her body, the aroma of her silky hairs was driving him crazy as he nuzzled in her neck with his neck making her go insane with his touch. He don’t know what he was doing is right or wrong or probably he knows. As if he was in some kind of spell at that moment. It seems that at that moment he had left all his logical nd rational thoughts behind nd just wanted to feel her in his arms. He felt himself attracting towards her as if she was a flame nd he’s a moth who just wanted to burn in her flame.

 

Maan’s masculine scent hits Geet’s nostrils making her daze nd den as if in trance she slowly placed a soft kiss on his chest near his heart nd Maan gently pulled her out from hug to look at her. Soft breeze was blowing outside making the strands of her hairs coming on her face. He gently extends his hand nd remove those tresses from her face which was blocking his view. Geet closed her eyes as she felt his soft touch on her skin making her feel intoxicated. He cupped her face in his hands nd placed his lips on her forehead kissing her softly over dere. Geet’s breathing got heavied as she felt his lips on her skin for the first tym. Maan noticed her moist eyes nd kissed them one by one sucking the tears from the corner of her eyes. This was something that he can’t bear even in his wildest dreams nd he still don’t know y her tears always pricked her heart. Den he moved towards her cheek nd gives a trail of kisses over dere as if memorizing her face. Both were totally lost in the moment nd had no idea of right or wrong by now. Maan slowly pulled his face away nd looked at her angelic face nd closed eyes. He had this sudden urge in him to look into her eyes at that moment. Nd as if reading his thoughts Geet opened her eyes nd Maan felt himself drowning in her bewitching eyes which were now dazed with passion.

 

He removed his coat from her body while still looking in her eyes nd Geet felt a gush of cold wind touches her body as soon as that cloth left her body. Maan throws away the coat somewhere at the floor nd traces his finger sensuously from her forehead to her cheeks to her jaw line nd then at her neck slowly making its way towards her cleavage feeling her soft skin under his finger which was tormenting him since evening. Geet’s breathing got ragged wen she felt Maan’s finger at the valley of her breast. She gasped out loud nd Maan instantly cupped her face looking intently deep into her eyes caressing her soft cheeks with his thumb. His thumb gently caressed her rosy lips pressing them nd Geet parted her lips as she felt short of breathe with the sweet torture of her husband. By every passing minute Maan was drowning more nd more in her nd it seems that he’ll lost himself in her tonight if he someone haven’t stopped him. But did he care for that at this moment? it seems that at this moment he just wanted to listen to his heart which was craving to feel her in every possible way than his mind which always stops him by giving its logical thoughts. Both dont know what they were doing, why dey were doing. it was as if the today’s incident had taken toll on them nd dey were just trying to sooth each other like this.

 

Geet felt herself lost in different world by now where her Maan was touching her, loving her something that she had always seen in her dreams but everything is now happening in real. She still can’t believe that it was not her dream but a reality. She raises her hand nd slowly placed it on his cheek caressing them slowly making herself believe that it was not her dream nd Maan was really dere with her. Maan closed his eyes as a groan of pleasure escaped from his throat feeling her soft touch on his hard stubble. He slowly holds her hand bringing it close to his lips nd kissed her palm softly nd gently giving trail of kisses all the way up her hand from her wrist to her arm to her shoulders nd then at neck. Geet tilted her head aside giving him more room.

 

Maan gently laid her on the couch beside them nd slowly hovers over her all the while looking into her eyes. Geet looked into his eyes only to find his pupils dilated in desire nd she felt each nd every fiber of her body getting burned under his gaze. It was as if he was undressing her with his eyes. She closed her eyes breathing heavily not able to look into the intensity of those eyes. Maan saw her closed eyes nd leans over her stopping just an inch away from her face. Geet felt his hot breath fanning her face nd her throat went dry as he gently blows air on her face as if soothing the fire that was burning inside her craving for his touch. Nd as if reading her thoughts Maan started placing open mouthed kisses all over her face sucking nd biting her soft cheeks making her moan his name. She writhed under him as he was sending her in the world of unknown pleasure. Maan just brushed his lips with hers nd Geet felt like someone had quenched her thirst that she was feeling all this while nd she felt a current running throughout her body.

 

Maan made his way towards her jaw line kissing ns sucking her soft skin. It was as if he couldn’t get enough of her. He bites her earlobe making her gasp in pleasure nd den kissed the sensitive spot behind her ear licking it with his tongue. He followed the path from behind her ear to her neck sucking, kissing nd licking in between relishing the taste of her soft skin. He pushed the sleeves of her blouse down her shoulders as he kissed over dere nd then biting nd sucking leaving his mark. Maan felt her chest heaving up nd down as it was pressed against his nd he could easily feel her buds getting hardened poking to his chest from the cloth which was just arousing him more nd more unleashing the animal in him. Geet felt his arousal poking her lower abdomen as he was busy relishing the taste of her body making her go insane nd crave for more of it.

 

“Maan” Geet moaned out his name loud as he bits her neck harshly nd den licks over there soothing the pain. Her moans were just provoking him more nd more unleashing the beast in him who just wanted to devour her ruthlessly.

 

Geet tilted her head aside to give him more space as Maan continues with his assault moving from her neck to her throat leaving his marks. He pulled apart for a while only to see her ragged breathing nd closed eyes. His gaze wanders over her body nd very gently he removed the pallu of her Saree from her upper body leaving it only in her blouse for his hungry eyes. He dipped his face in her cleavage kissing nd sucking over dere. Geet encircled her arms around his neck pressing him more close to her. Maan keeps on biting, sucking nd kissing the soft skin of her cleavage making her way towards her collarbone nd den down to her breast while Geet was just pressing him closer to her if possible. He trailed the path of her valley with his tongue licking it making it wet with his saliva. Geet arched her back towards him giving him more access while he was busy in relishing the taste of her body. Maan’s hands were busy caressing the soft skin of her waist while his legs were raising the Saree up her legs slowly caressing nd feeling the skin of her smooth nd slim legs with his. Geet tucked in her tummy as Maan made his way downwards kissing nd licking the smooth skin of her belly. He rolled over his tongue around the sensitive skin of her belly button making her arch nd moan his name in pleasure. He kissed her belly button before coming upwards towards her breast yet again. Geet digs her nails tight on his shoulders nd back leaving her mark over dere as he bites over the swell of her breast visible from her blouse.

 

“Ohhh Maan” Geet moaned out his name wen she felt him squeezing her curves above the cloth while his mouth was busy in feasting the another one as he bites nd pinches her buds above the thin material of the blouse. By now Maan’s all weight was totally over Geet as he was hovering over her Geet felt his hardness pressing on her core from above the cloth. It was as if they were making Love from above the cloth. Get was totally breathless by now as he was pleasuring her in multiple ways.

 

Maan came over to her face once again nd looked at her angelic face which was totally dazed nd flushed by now due to their little act of passion. Her chest was heaving up nd down due to her ragged breathing while her lips were quivering craving for his. He keeps on looking at those petals intently which were tormenting him from so long nd den at her face as if trying to seek her permission before worshiping those petals of hers. Geet gently opened her dazed eyes only to meet his dark ones which were oozing passion, desire just for her. Just a look in his eyes nd Geet knows what he anted because she herself wanted that. She slowly closed her eyes giving him permission nd it was all Maan needed.

 

He leaned over her face nd Geet his hot breath over her lips as his face was just mere inches away from hers. Maan closed his eyes nd moved ahead to feel her nd finally the moment wen his lips touched hers nd before anyone of them could understand anything Maan had started kissing her. The moment their lips met they both feel complete nd contented. It was as if nothing could be more perfect then this for both of them. Maan felt like he got back his lyf which was lost somewhere while Geet was totally in heaven feeling her husband so close to herself loving her in reality nd not in one of her dreams. Maan was gently kissing her rose petals as if afraid to crush dem. he dnt want to be harsh on her so he keep on kissing her softly nd gently. He took her lower lip between his lips nd sucked it slowly. The Rage of Hormones in dere body increased due to dis nd adreline rushed in dere bodies as he kissed her softly nd gently.

 

He don’t want to stop nd neither did she as somewhere back of her mind both of them knows that nothing could be more perfect then this at this moment. A lone tear of happiness escaped from Geet’s eyes as today she felt her husband’s love just for her that too in real nd not in one of her fantasies. It was as if here at this moment their heart had recognized each other nd had accepted each other with all the Love they had for each other. It was just not the meeting of their Lips or bodies but the meeting of two souls who just wanted to drown in the world of ecstasy, Love nd Passion together forever.

 

The Kiss that had started as a gentle one becomes a passionate pone as Maan increases the fervour of the Kiss. As Geet’s vulnerable condition nd her tear stricken face came in front of him his kiss becomes a demanding one. It was as if he wanted to sooth all those pains, all those fears that she had faced in those few mins of her struggle with Vikram. With his one hand he held her face tight keeping it fixed at its place while his other hand was busy caressing the smooth skin of her belly nd waist. He was loving the feeling of feeling her soft nd warm skin under his cold palm while his velvety mouth was moving over hers pouring out the feelings of his heart. He sucked, nibbled her lower lips relishing its taste.

 

Geet tried hard to match up with his passion but it was too much for her yet she tried her best to pleasure him in the way he was pleasuring her. The passion running thru his veins has infuriated Geet’s senses too as without her own knowledge she started responding to his kiss, kissing him back with equal fervour. Her hands have the will of their own as they encircled around his neck pulling him closer to deepen the kiss. At that moment nothing else matters to her nd all she could think is that she was in the arms of the person whom she loves with all her soul, who is the sole reason of her existence nd with whom she wanted to spend whole of her lyf with. It was raining heavily outside as if blessing these two lovers.

 

“Maan” Geet moaned into his mouth as Maan bit her lower lip while his tongue gained entry in her mouth exploring each nd every corner of her mouth drinking her sweet nectar. It was as if he was relishing the sweetest thing in this world.

 

“Geet” Maan groaned in pleasure as Geet clutched his back piercing her nails over dere while her other hand makes way to his hairs clutching dem over dere. Their tongues have the story of their own as they dancing, twirling nd twisting in each other’s mouth tasting each nd every corner of each other’s mouth. Both were lost, lost in the moment. They were kissing each other like dere is no tomorrow.

 

The kiss has expressed each nd every emotions running in their hearts right now. Her selfless Love, his unrealized feelings, her wait for him, his dilemma regarding his own feelings, her longingness to feel his Love just for her, his uncontrollable desires for her, everything was evident in that kiss. Geet couldn’t ask for anything more then this. This was the most beautiful moment of her life nd she’ll always cherish this for whole of her life. Tonight she just wanted so submit each nd every fiber of her body nd soul to the person she Loves nd worships the most. It seems that today the line of right or wrong which was drawn between them had vanished nd all that matters was their Love for each other where one had its realization nd other yet had to realize.

 

Maan pulled out from kiss wen they both were breathless nd dipped his face in her neck panting heavily. Geet’s breathings were ragged too due to the moment transpired between them nd as a result she hugged him tight hiding her face in the crook of his neck trying to calm her heartbeats. As her bare skin touched his bare chest Maan felt a sudden rush of desires coursing in his veins craving to feel her more nd more. And as a result his hands moved to her waistline caressing over dere with his fingers. Geet tucked in her tummy wen she felt him tugging his fingers at the edge of her Saree plates in order to remove them.

 

Maan was about to release the plates of her Saree from her skirt wen he heard a loud voice of thunder outside causing the window pane open loudly. This broke Maan’s trance nd realization hits him hard making him realize what he was doing. He was kissing her, devouring her without even knowing that whether she wants it also or not. And as soon as the realization hits him he instantly gets off from her pushing his hairs back in frustration.

 

Maan looked at Geet who was still lyieng on the couch with her eyes closed nd her chest was heaving up nd down due to her ragged breathings. Her pallu was dangling aside leaving her upper body only in blouse while her lips were swollen nd her upper body was full of his marks due to his assault on it. He immediately looked other side not able to look at her.

 

“Maan” Geet called out softly wen she felt the warmth of his body missing causing Maan to look at her.

 

Geet opens her eyes slowly to look at him only to see him feeling guilty. The eyes which were reflecting his desires, his Love, his passion for her few mins back were now reflecting his guilt nd regret of what he has done. She looked at him confusingly as if trying to figure what had gone wrong all of a sudden that he was so regretful of his acts. Haven’t he saw the Love in her eyes for him that he was feeling guilty of what he had done, she thought as she looked at Maan who was now picking up the coat from the floor nd has tucked it on her upper body securely hiding her modesty

 

“I am Sorry Geet. I am really sorry.” He said before heading outside the room nd before Geet could say anything or do anything to stop him he had already gone out of the room.

 

“Did he really regret of what happened between us?” Geet thought as she clutched his coat tight to herself which still had his fragrance in it while her eyes started getting watery.

 

****************************************************

 

Maan goes to his gym to take out all the frustration nd anger he was having on himself. With each nd every punches nd kicks his close moments with Geet was coming in front of his eyes. And as a result his punches nd kicks gets more aggressive by every passing minute. He vigorously throws kicks nd punches in the air while doing his intense tai-chi to calm down his restless mind.

 

Maan’s Monologue:

 

What the hell is wrong with me? What I had done? How could I do this? How could I lose my control over myself? How could I let my desires overtook me? The desires which I was trying to control from so long how I could let those desires blind my senses. But at that moment everything seems to be so perfect den y it seems to be wrong at this moment. No, what I am even thinking? It was wrong since the tym it all has started. Geet was scared, terrified with what had happened with her thatsy she hugged me but what went wrong with me, Why did I behaved like a bloody Pervert? We were on the verge of making Love if those Thunder sounds haven’t brought me back in my senses. What Geet must be thinking of me? But she too responded to my touch, she didn’t protest at all, why? May be she was emotionally wrecked at that tym or she had submitted herself to me as his wifely duties but what had gone wrong with me.

 

Geet, she must be thinking so low of me. She must be thinking that I am lusting over here; she must be thinking that I am trying to show my rights on her but it is not true. She had done everything, sacrificed her each nd every dream to keep this marriage working without any expectations nd I�� I just ruined everything. Whatever happened between us was not right. How will I face her now? How will I meet her eyes now? I had saved her from that leech Vikram den how I myself could do any such thing like that. I know that we are husband nd wife nd it’s my duty to do all the mechanics of marriage but not like this. How could I relate to Geet physically wen I had only Loved Sameera. It’ll be wrong with her. But then a part of me believes that whatever happened between us was right nd nothing could be more perfect then this but another part of mine is denying this fact. Why?

 

After so many efforts our relationship had gone in such a comfort zone den how could I ruin everything? Torn between my desires nd this unknown attraction I had done all this. I had let that beast overtook me who wanted to devour her in every possible way. It was wrong; whatever happened between us was wrong. How could I betray Sameera’s Love wen I was so madly in love with her nd still in Love with her? How could I betray Geet’s trust that she had on me since the tym of our marriage? But am I really in Love with Sameera now because if I am den I could have never done that what I had done few mins back. So does that mean that Geet had taken Sameera’s place in my heart? NO!!! NEVER!!!! Wat I am thinking? How can I even think of it? Whatever happened between us was just the result of that physical attraction that I was feeling towards Geet nd nothing else. I can’t Love Geet nd I know she too can’t Love me. She just respects me nd may be thatsy she had submitted herself to me tonight but now I wont let this happen again. The emotions in my heart that gone out of control today I won’t let those emotions to overtook me again. I won’t let my desires blind my sense of wrong nd right again. I won’t let that trust to be broken which Geet had on me. I had to do something nd that too soon.

 

(Maan’s Monologue ends)

 

Maan keeps on punching nd kicking in air for god knows how long. All the muscles of his body were aching yet the pain that he was feeling in his heart right now was much more then the pain he was feeling in his body. Finally his legs gave up nd he loses his balance nd fell on floor nd a loud howl escaped from his throat reflecting his inner turmoil that he was facing right now. He was torn between his heart nd mind now, which were leading him to two different directions. Where his heart was feeling contented after feeling so close to him nd making him feel that the thing that he feel for Geet is much more then just an attraction, his mind was continuously denying this fact making him remind that she’s his deceased wife’s sister nd he cant feel for her in this way. But least he knows that with this inner turmoil of his he was not only hurting himself but also that person who loves him beyond the limits of sanity nd whom he too loves yet he don’t want to accept.

 

*************************************************************

 

Here Geet was still sitting at the place where Maan had left her still clutching his coat tight. Her eyes were just stick to the door as she waited for him to come back so that she could tell him that she don’t regret for whatever transpired between them but he was nowhere to be seen.

 

Geet’s Monologue:

Did he regret for whatever between us? But why did he regret? I swear I saw Love in his eyes for me wen he was kissing me, touching me den what happen all of a sudden that he regret for that? Did he thought that I regret for what happened between us but how could he think that? This was the most blissful moment of my life den how could I regret this He says that my eyes are the mirror of my heart nd he can easily read them den y didn’t he saw my Love for him in my eyes. Nd that guilt which I saw in his eyes I just can’t able to bear it. I know he must be thinking that he had done wrong with me but y is he thinking anything like that

 

Or it is like he saw Sameera Di in me thatsy he Loved me nd touched me in that way? This mere thought is pricking my heart. I know its wrong wen I knew how madly Di nd Maan were in love but why my traitor heart is not accepting this fact. May be I shouldn’t have hugged him at that moment. He was just trying to console me nd I didn’t realize wen I started to tempt him. Afterall he too is a man nd he must have some desires. So what if I had seen a flicker of emotions in his eyes during the dance or at the tym wen I hugged him or wen he’s kissing me, his feelings are still not strong as mine nd he must be needing sometym to realize it. Afterall it’s difficult to forget your first love nd give its place to someone else. Nd I in the daze of my fear nd Love had tempted him den its so natural for him to touch me in this way.  Y it didn’t struck in my pea-size brain before may be den he shouldn’t be guilty like the way he’s now. I need to tell him that I didn’t regret for whatever happened between us. Afterall he’s my husband nd he had full right on my body nd soul but more then that he’s the person I Love the most nd I had submitted the each nd every fiber of my body nd soul to him.

 

Maan, y don’t you understand that you haven’t done anything wrong? Whatever happened was happened with my consent nd I don’t regret for it. I Love you so much Maan nd only you had right to touch me nd Love me in this way. I Love you Maan nd I’ll always do but right now I had to make you realize that you haven’t done anything wrong that you have to feel guilty for it. I know right now you must be blaming yourself only because you must be thinking that I am not ready for all this but it is not true Maan. I know you can never Love me but I won’t let you drown in the pool of your guilt too. I’ll do whatever I can to take out from this guilt nd I’ll succeed in it.

 

(Geet’s Monologue ends)

 

She keeps on waiting nd waiting for him but he didn’t come inside the room. She was feeling totally exhausted with all the events that happened since evening yet she didn’t blink her eyes once nd keeps on looking at the door waiting for him. She knows that once she’ll tell him that she don’t regret for whatever happened between them den he’ll be free from this guilt. Nd to see him all happy nd without any guilt she could wait for whole of her life for him nd she’ll. Her eyes were giving up as it was closing again nd again due to fatigue yet she tried hard to keep them open because she can’t miss the chance to talk to Maan. But finally she dozed off waiting for him nd didn’t realize wen she went into deep slumber waiting for him still sitting on the couch.

 

*************************************************************

 

Maan came into the room late at night thinking that she must have been slept by now but to his surprise he saw her sleeping on the couch while waiting for him. He felt a lump on his throat as he saw her position. Ofcourse she must be waiting for him afterall he owe an explanation to her for his act. But what will he tell her that he came close to her because he was not able to keep control in his desires for her. What will he tell her that now-a-days he was feeling an unknown attraction towards her due to which he did all this? No he can’t break her heart. its true that she don’t love him but she respects him nd wen he’ll tell her this then probably he’ll lose that respect too nd he don’t want this. He don’t know y but he can’t see Geet hurted due to him. He needs sometym before talking to Geet. Thinking this he looked at Geet who was sleeping on couch in half-sitting position holding his coat tight. The marks which were now visible on the skin exposed from his coat are now turning into Love bytes nd as he looked at them he feared for Geet’s reaction next morning.

 

He slowly went towards her making sure that he don’t disturb her sleep nd gently scooped her in his arms. As he looked at her angelic face he felt himself loosing it again but then he immediately whacked himself mentally shrugging off all the thoughts nd slowly headed towards their bed nd gently laid her down while tucking her securely in the blanket. He had just turned to leave wen he felt a tug in his hand nd he was afraid that if she’s awake? If yes then how will he face her? He slowly turned to look at her nd found her still sleeping while holding his hand in hers. He smiled nd bend down at her level to look at her.

 

It was true that he was feeling guilty for his act but that guilt was more for her because he thinks that he was ruining her lyf, her trust by letting his desires overtook like this nd he can’t do that even in his wildest dreams. She respects him as her sister’s husband nd is comfortable with him as a friend nd he cant let her do the things against her will just because he was her husband nd he was physically attracted towards her. He keeps on looking at her for a while nd den gently disentangled his hand from hers Nd was turned to leave only wen he had this sudden urge in him to look at her once again. Giving up in front of his heart he turned nd look at her. Nd before he could understand anything he found himself giving a soft peck on her forehead wishing her good night

 

“Please try to forgive me Geet for whatever I done with you in the daze of my desires.” He whispered looking at her sleeping form nd den turned to go nd sleep in the study after taking a long hour of shower to calm his erotic thoughts because he definitely can’t sleep in the couch today as it only let him remind his close moments with Geet.

 

Outside it was still raining but this tym it seems that it was crying on the fate on these two lovers who loves each other insanely but the difference is that one had realized this feeling long back while other is still in the dilemma.

 

********************************************************

 

Next morning when Geet woke up she found herself on the bed with the blanket tucking securely around her along with Maan’s coat. It took her sometym to register the events of last nite nd as those images flashed in front of her eyes, her eyes instantly searched for Maan who was nowhere to be seen in the room. She looked at the couch which was totally undone indicating that no one has slept over dere. Just then she realized that last nite she slept on couch waiting for him nd today morning she found herself on Bed. And she don’t have to guess who brought her here in the bed. It can only be Maan who cares for her this much nd only he can bring her in the bed like this. the mere thought that she was in Maan’s arms wen he carried her to the bed had started giving goosebumps in her body but right now it was not a tym to think about all this as right now her priority is to talk to Maan as soon as possible so that she could tell him that he haven’t done anything wrong.

 

But the question is that where is Maan? if she’s here in the bed den definitely Maan had came back last nite den where’s he’s now nd y he didn’t slept in their room last nite nd where had he slept? There were so many questions running in her mind nd she knows that only one person can answer all these questions nd that one person is only Maan whom her eyes are searching restlessly. She immediately get down from bed nd adjusted her clumsy Saree before heading outside in search of Maan. just then as if to answer all her questions Maan entered in the room in his vest nd track pants after his workout session only to collide with Geet who was heading outside. As soon as Geet saw him her heart was at peace nd as a result she instantly hugged him tight expressing her restlessness of not seeing him in the morning

 

“Aap kahan chale Gaye the? Aapko pata hai main kitna darr gayi thi” Geet said in a choked voice while still hugging him tight as if he’ll vanish in thin air if she’ll leave him.

 

[Where had you gone? You know how much I got scared]

 

Maan just stood dere numb not knowing how to react nd what to say. Why is she behaving like this? Isn’t she mad on him for whatever he did last nite, he thought as he looked at her hugging him so tight. Probably she thinks of one of her duty to succumb in the demands of his body thatsy she’s not mad at him. But he didn’t think like this way. For him their relationship is far beyond physical. Yes for a moment he got dazed in his desires but now he’s in his senses nd he can’t let the same thing happen again.

 

Yet his heart is aching to crush her in his arms nd go away somewhere where this line of right nd wrong doesn’t even exist but then his mind again overtook his heart making him realize what he was thinking. For the first tym he hesitate to hug her back as he knows that he had no control on himself wenever she’s this much close to him. He’s scared to call this feeling as Love as he thinks that it’ll be unfair to both Sameera nd Geet but its not in him to call it as just a physical attraction or Lust also as it’ll be an insult to all that Geet had done till now. Torn between his feelings nd ideologies he just stood over dere motionless without any reaction

 

Geet pulled out from hug wen she didn’t felt the warmth of her embrace around her which was always dere wenever she needed it but today that warmth is missing. She looked into his eyes nd saw the same guilt nd regret which she saw last nite. Nd she knows that this guilt was more for her den it is for him because he thinks that he did wrong with her as he’s still unaware of her feelings but she need to tell him that he don’t have to regret for anything. She keeps on looking in his eyes trying to find those emotions that she witnessed last nite but all she saw in them was guilt nd regret for his acts. No, she wont let him travel in this guilt trip wen he was nowhere at fault. Determining this she was about to say something wen Maan’s voice interrupted her in between.

 

“Geet, I am sorry.” Maan said nd Geet frowned listening to his apology.

 

“Geet, I am sorry for whatever happened last nite. It won’t be happen like this. I mean I shouldn’t have lost my control lyk this but I failed to get a grip on my control nd ended up��. ended up being that close to you.” Maan somehow able to complete his sentence while looking away from her as he knows that one look in her eyes nd he’ll lose himself once again.

 

“Maan Aap�.” Geet tried to say something only to be interrupted by him again.

 

“Please Geet let me speak. I know you wont see me in fault because you respect me a lot nd can never see me feeling guilty. You will always ready to fulfill your wifely duties be it fulfilling my desires or any other thing but that doesn’t mean that I take advantage of it. Ur consent matter a lot to me nd I in the daze of that moment didn’t even care for that. Though unknowingly but I had taken advantage of your respect towards me. Knowingly or unknowingly I had ruined that trust which you had on me with this act of mine nd I’ll never be able to forgive myself for that but please try to forgive me for whatever I did.” Maan said nd each word of his is pricking Geet’s heart. Not because she was feeling hurt with his words but because he was feeling guilty because he thinks that she doesn’t want this.

 

“Maan you are thinking all wrong. It’s not like that.” Geet tried to explain him but he was so adamant in his own logics.

 

“No Geet I know I am at fault nd I also know that you can never find any fault in me but Geet truth is this only that whatever happened last nite shouldn’t have happened nd I need sometym to be back at normal nd den face you as right now I am not even able to face myself. Please give sometym to me Geet to make everything like it was before. Please.” Maan literally pleaded to her nd all Geet could is to nod her head as she herself think that whatever he’s saying may be right. She should give him sometym. May be after that he’ll be free from this guilt nd den she’ll tell him that she didn’t regret for whatever happened.

 

************************************************************

 

But things didn’t turn out the way Geet thought. She thought after some days Maan will be normal nd their relationship will be back to normal like before but it didn’t happened like that. Infact since that day Maan had started keeping distance with her once again just like he use to do in the initial days of their marriage. Nd all Geet could do is to wait for him just like she use to do before. But Maan makes sure that he hardly comes face to face with her as wenever he looked at her their making out session came in front of his eyes nd he started feeling guilty for his act. So in order to avoid it he started going to office early sometimes without having breakfast nd den comes late at night wen everyone in the house sleep even Geet. but wenever Mana entered in his room he always finds Geet sleeping on the couch waiting for him nd den he carried her to the bed nd tucked her securely in the blanket nd next morning before Geet could wake up he goes to his workout session or to take shower so wen Geet comes with his coffee she never finds him in the room.

 

Geet knows that Maan is purposely distancing himself from her as co-incidence can happen once or twice or even thrice but it can’t happen Everytym. She’s not a fool that she’s not understanding his excuse of work load or important meeting at office but she just wanted him to give sometym so that he could understand it by himself that she still had the same place nd respect for him which she had before but seeing Maan punishing himself for no fault of his was unbearable to her. Wenever she goes to his office taking his Lunch his secretary use to tell her that Maan is out for some Lunch meeting nd will return late so sighing she just came back home leaving his Lunch over dere only because she knows that he’s at the office only nd purposely not coming in front of her nd its true because as soon as Geet left from his cabin Maan came out from the adjacent cabin nd started having the lunch that Geet had brought for him for he don’t like any other thing then the food made by her. But unknown to him Geet always caught him relishing the lunch made by her through the blinds. Tears welled up in her eyes wen she saw him struggling with himself for no reason. But for his own sake she decided to keep quiet nd see to which extent he can avoid her.

 

But amidst of all these also Maan never failed to take care of Geet. His guilt due to his act was another thing but his responsibility for her is his utmost priority. But the only difference is that he never shows this in front of her but he always makes sure that she doesn’t face any kind of problems. Unknown to Geet he had appointed bodyguards for her who follows her at a safe distance wenever she goes somewhere out of the house. Vikram’s incidence is still fresh in his mind nd he don’t want Geet to stuck up in another problem.

 

Nd as for Vikram Maan had done all the arrangements to make his lyf living hell. Till now Maan had never poke his nose in his business no matter how illegal it was because till now he had never crossed his path in such a dirty way. But what he tried to do with Geet that day had evoked the Beast in him nd since that day he had started planning for Vikram’s downfall. He gathered all the details of his illegal business nd the crimes that he had committed nd after gathering all necessary evidences against him he presented them in front of law along with some other charges such as forgery, coercion etc nd within blink of eyes all Vikram’s business came into crash nd now the condition is that he don’t even have the money to appoint a lawyer for him for Maan had made such charges that all his black money was now under STF officers nd the little money he had it all gone into paying the loans nd debts nd as if its not enough Maan had send Vikram jail on the charge of raping a 18 year old girl nd murdering one of his business rival making sure that he spent rest of his lyf in jail only nd will never come out from it.

 

 

But inspite of all this also he still didn’t have courage to face Geet nd he keeps on distancing himself from her. This went for whole 3 weeks nd now it was taking toll on Geet. Everything has a limit nd Maan was testing her patience now. y don’t he understand that she cant blame him in her wildest dreams. This is what she feared since the day she realized her feelings for him. She knows that he’ll distance himself from her wen he come to know about it nd it finally happened but the reason is different. He was distancing himself because he thinks that he tried to force himself on her which is not true. She had submitted herself willingly to him for her body, her soul belongs to him only but now his indifferent behaviour was hurting her. She knows he cares for her nd even in this state also he never fails to care for her like he use to before but only difference is that now he avoid coming in front of her. Its whole 3 weeks nd they haven’t talked properly to each other forget about talking they hardly able to see each other. But now not anymore. She needs to tell him what she feels for him. Probably Savy was right she should have tell this to him then only but nevertheless its better late then never. Probably its high tym now wen she should tell him hat she feels for him probably den he’ll realize that he don’t have to feel guilty for anything, she thought nd determined to tell Maan each nd every thing that she feels for him wen he’ll come back from office today no matter what’s the consequence of it.

 

 

That evening she was waiting eagerly for him to come in the living room. Though she was conversing with Dadimaa but all her mind was towards the door waiting for his arrival but he didn’t come. Just wen she was about to call him nd ask wen he’ll come she saw Dev coming inside. Her heart flutters with the thought that now Maan will also come any moment because she came to know from Adi that today there was not much work in the office. She was so excited to tell him about her feelings that she didn’t even concentrate on what Dadimaa was saying but soon her excitement turned into disappointment wen Maan didn’t came inside even after whole 15 mins.

 

“Dev, where is Maan?” Geet asked anxiously as her eyes restlessly searched for Maan.

 

“Geet, Bro haven’t told you that he’s going to London?” Dev asked with a frown confusing Geet.

 

“London?” she asked yet again in order to confirm that she had heard it right.

 

“Ya Geet wo there was some problem in the London project from some days so today Bro had decided to go to London nd check himself. So he left for London this afternoon after lunch from office only. But I thought that he must have informed you, hasn’t he?” Dev asked but Geet was not able to concentrate on whatever he was saying further for her mind is wandering only at the thing that Maan had left for London nd haven’t even met her before.

 

“Wo chale gaye. Mujhse ek baar mile bhi nahi, bataya tak nahi aur chale Gaye. Kyun?” she muttered as she made her way towards her room motionless leaving confused Dev nd worried Dadimaa behind.

 

It’s been 3 hours since Dev came back from office nd broke the news of Maan’s departure for London. Geet didn’t come out from the room since the tym she had stepped in. Dadimaa was worried with these sudden turn of events as till now she was witnessing the change in Maan nd Geet’s relationship nd she was sure their comfort will turn into Love but with this sudden act of Maan’s, her worry for their relation had again started clouding her heart. She had gone to her room also to call her for dinner but she just refused by saying that she was not feeling to eat anything. Dadimaa had tried several tymes but seeing her stubbornness she sighed nd left from there leaving her alone. She wanted to talk to Geet nd ask if something went wrong between them in her absence but seeing her state she choose to not to ask her now.

 

Here Geet was still trying to register what Dev has said. She still can’t believe that Maan had left for London for indefinite period nd didn’t even tell her. It was not that he had gone out of India for the first tym after their marriage. He had gone for his tour several tymes but Everytym he use to inform her 3 days before his departure nd she happily arranges each nd every thing that he would need for his tour. He even called her also from the airport before boarding his flight. But this is the first tym he had gone without meeting her nd even worse he didn’t even told her. To say that she was hurt with Maan’s behaviour would be an understatement as she was feeling heart broken with this behaviour of Maan.

 

How could Maan do this to her? Ok agreed, that he was feeling guilt nd was trying to be back to normal by distancing himself from her. But wasn’t all that enough that he was doing from past 3 weeks that today he had taken this step. And what does he think that like this he’ll make everything normal between them. Hell No!!! He may not understand that like this he’s making things more difficult between them, she thought as she sat on the couch holding Maan’s pic. Till now she had given him his space because she thought that may be he’ll come out from his guilt trip on his own but today Maan’s this action has shattered all he hopes.

 

She thought that today she’ll tell each nd every feeling to Maan which was there in her heart nd after that everything will be fine but everything went upside down with this act of Maan’s nd now here she is sitting lonely in their room holding his pic with tears continuously flowing from her eyes. She felt like everything was slipping away from her hand, her life is slipping away from her nd she was just watching it helplessly not able to do anything. Never in her lyf she had felt this much suffocated before like she was feeling now. Never in her lyf she had felt this much alone before like she was feeling now. Nd the person who’s always there to take her out from her miseries is only the reason of her current state nd the worse part is that he didn’t even realize it till now. all she want at that moment is to yell at Maan, to give him some piece of Mind so that he could understand that he was feeling guilty unnecessarily but all she could do at that moment is to sit over here alone nd cry on the sudden turn of events.

 

“Aap Na bahut bure ho. Suna aapne bahut bure ho aap. Is tarah mujhe chod ke chale Gaye. Kyun? Kyun aap achanak is tarah se chale gaye? Ek baar mujhse mile bhi nahi, mujhe bataya tak nahi aur chale gaye. Ek baar Mujhse baat to ki hoti, mujhe batane ka mauka to diya hota ki I Love you nd I don’t regret what happened between us that night. But no you straight away jump into the conclusions by yourself nd now punishing not only urself but also me. Please don’t do this to urself nd to me. Please jaldi se waapas aa jaiye Maan. I miss you, I miss you a lot. Aapki Geet aapke bina ekdum akeli ho gayi hai. Waapas aa jaiye Maan, Waapas aa jaiye.” Geet said while clutching Maan’s photo tight to her heart sobbing uncontrollably wetting his face on the photo with her tears.

 

[You are really very bad. Did you listen, you are very bad. You had gone by leaving me like this. Why? Why you left like this all of a sudden? You didn’t even met me once neither did you told me nd left. Atleast u should have talk to me once, gave me a chance to tell you that I Love you nd I don’t regret what happened between us that night. But no you straight away jump into the conclusions by yourself nd now punishing not only urself but also me. Please don’t do this to urself nd to me. Please come soon Maan. I miss you, I miss you a lot. Your Geet had become all alone without you. Please come soon Maan, come soon.]

 

 

Here inside the flight Maan jerked open his eyes as he felt sudden restlessness in his heart. He looked at his watch nd realize that he was about to reach to London nd he was sure that by now Dev had told everyone back at home about his sudden departure to London. He sighed nd leaned back on his seat nd closed his eyes yet again. As he closed his eyes the only thing he saw is Geet’s smiling face in front of his eyes nd he jerked them open yet again. He knows that Geet must be shocked with this sudden action of his nd for the first tym in his lyf Maan Singh Khurana is not sure that whether by leaving like this all of a sudden is right or wrong. He very well knows that this problem in London project was just an excuse to go away from her but at that moment he just wanted to go away from all this for sometym so that he could get sometym to ponder over his thoughts nd feelings for Geet. Nd by staying near her it was impossible for him to do so.

 

Though they hardly came face to face in this 3 weeks but wenever they came all the events of that night started playing in front of his eyes making him more guilty. No matter how much he had avoided her but he did see her sleeping on couch while waiting for him wen he returned late at night. He saw her bringing lunch for him in the office nd den leaving it over dere for him before leaving from office disappointed. He saw her preparing breakfast nd coffee for him everyday excitedly like she use to do before nd he hardly use to have it. Nd all this had started taking toll on him. He knows that he was hurting Geet with this behaviour of his but for the first tym he himself was helpless as he himself was burning in a fire den how can he sooth her. But no matter how much he was burning from inside yet he cant see her getting hurted due to him therefore to avoid hurting her anymore he decided to be alone for sometym so that he could get a grip on himself.

 

He could feel the restlessness in his heart again nd again nd he don’t have to guess why he was feeling so. He knows that the only person who must be missing him right now is none other then Geet due to which he was feeling this sudden restlessness. he could feel her sadness nd pain right now though by being 100 miles away from her nd the worse part is that he cant do anything to sooth that pain because he himself was lost in his own miseries. Never in his lyf he felt this much helpless before like he was feeling now. But he cant do anything rather then wishing that Geet could understand him nd his reason for taking this step. He was going away from her not because he wanted to stay away from her but because he could control himself nd this uncontrollable emotions so that everything get back to normal in their relationship

 

“I am sorry Geet for leaving you like this. I know that I had hurted you yet again But I am doing all this for our own good, for the good of our relationship. Even I am not happy by leaving like this but I had to Geet. Because if I had to make everything normal between us den I need to stay away from you for sometym. Please try to understand me Geet nd don’t miss me much. I cant betray you Geet by giving you any false hopes for our relationship due to my uncontrollable desires wen I know that I cant give you that place in my heart which I gave to Sameera so its better if I stay away from you for few days so that I can control my desires for you because our relationship is far beyond by just being physical nd I cant insult it like this I’ll come back wen I feel controlled enough to be near you so that I wont repeat the same thing that I did that night to broke your trust on me.” Maan murmured as he closed his eyes yet again wen he heard the announcement that flight is about to land to London.

 

********************************************************

 

Days went by nd so did weeks nd it’s been 2 weeks now since Maan had left for London. But each nd everyday was not less then a punishment for both Geet nd Maan nd especially Geet who everyday woke up with the hope that may be today Maan will come or atleast call her but by every night he hopes just shattered nd she ends up being alone. In front of other family members she tries her best to smile so that they wont get suspicious of her inner turmoil especially Dadimaa who always use to worry for hers nd Maan’s relationship but inside she was dyeing with each nd every second. She gets to know about Maan tym to tym from Dev nd Dadimaa wenever he use to call them from London but not once did he called her to talk to her nd this is what hurted her even more but she didn’t said anything nd pretended in front of Dadimaa nd others that she nd Maan use to talk every night but Dadimaa can see through her lie. Many tymes she tried to talk regarding this to Maan but Everytym Maan avoided this topic nd cuts the call increasing her worry even more.

 

Geet had thought many tymes to call Maan on her own but Everytym she use to stop himself by just half dialing his number nd if sometym she called him also then it was Maan’s secretary who picks up the call telling her that he’s in meeting nd dejected she just cuts the call. It was getting unbearable for her to bear this distance between them. At times she just feel like to run away in his arms nd hide over dere for forever so that he could never keep her apart from himself but she knows that this wont be possible until Maan would make a move which seems to be impossible for now.

 

By passing of each nd every day she was started withdrawing in her own shell. Most of the tym she use to stay at her room only sometimes complaining to Sameera’s pic about Maan nd sometimes to Maan’s pic itself. She hardly eats or goes out with Annie nd Savera nd wenever they ask her den she just says that she don’t feel like having anything or going somewhere nd made some excuses Everyone in the house was missing her chirpy self but everyone was clueless at this behaviour of hers as they knew that this is not the first tym Maan had left for his tour like this that Geet is behaving like this but only Dadimaa knows that something had definitely went wrong between them due to which all this is happening but wenever she tries to talk about this to Geet then she just shrugs off by saying that everything is fine between them nd she was just missing Maan nd nothing else.

 

Every member in the house was trying there best to cheer her up but least they knows that the only person who can brought her normal back again is Maan who is far away right now. Dev had even brought Geet office also along with him on the pretext of helping him over dere in the absence of Maan so that she could divert her mind for sometym but he didn’t knew that he was bringing back the gush of memories in her mind like this as wenever she goes to his cabin all the flashes of her nd Maan having lunch together nd then that close moment that they shared that day in his cabin started playing in front of her eyes. His chair on which she use to drool for hours imagining Maan to be there was just add to her miseries which makes her miss him even more nd she just comes back to home the very next moment.

 

It was one fine day wen Geet was in her room at night trying to catch some sleep wen she heard landline of her room ringing. She immediately got up nd looked at watch which was showing 1 am of night. She frowned thinking who must be calling her at this tym of night. She choose to ignore the call but the thinking it to be of someone important she decided to attend it.

 

“Hello!” she said in a low voice as soon as she picked up the call only to find no response from other side. She frowned nd looked at the receiver to check if it’s working or not.

 

“Hello! Who’s it?” she said yet again but again there was no response from other side but this tym she heard someone’s breathings

 

“Who’s it?” Geet asked yet again desperately because somewhere her heart has sensed who’s on the other side but again there was no response from other side except the sounds of breathings

 

“Aap waapas kab aayenge? Please jaldi se waapas aa jayiye.” Geet said while trying her best to muffle the sob that was desperately wanted to escape from her throat.

 

[When are you coming back? Please come back soon.]

 

Yes she recognized who is on the other side. She doesn’t need to hear the sound to recognize the person from the other side as she can recognize him from his breath. It was Maan, her Maan who had finally called her. She wanted to ask so many questions, to say so many things to him but at that moment she just managed to say those 2 lines nd den went quiet just listening to his calm breathings. Both didn’t spoke for few moments just listening to each other’s khamoshiyaan nd next moment Geet felt the line getting disconnected from the other side.

 

“Hello! Hello Maan! Hello!” Geet said again nd again while checking that phone is not out of order but then it hits her that Maan had cut the call from other side.

 

She put the receiver back with heavy heart nd came back to couch nd laid down holding Maan’s pic. Maan had called her, her Maan had called her was the only thing which was running in her mind. At one side where her heart danced in joy realizing that Maan had finally called her then on the other hand it pained wen it realizes that Maan didn’t even said a word to her wen he called her after so long. She so much wanted to hear his voice but he didn’t say a word to her nd just kept down the phone. But still today her heart was at peace because today Maan had called her, it means he reminds of her nd it means that he too is missing her like she’s missing him thatsy he called her nd though for few mins she was able to talk to him. She clutched Maan’s photo tight nd went into deep slumber thinking of her Maan.

 

 

Here in London Maan too was not able to concentrate on anything since the tym he came here. Days went busy in solving the problem of London project but his nights were sleepless as he continuously thinks of Geet. He thought that by coming far away from her he’ll able to control his emotions but situation gets more worse instead nd he started missing her like anything. he missed the coffee prepared by her, he missed the breakfasts, the lunches, the dinners made by her, he missed her bossing over him wen he neglects his health in the amidst of work, he missed her way of arranging his clothes every morning, he missed her pranks that she use to play along with Vicky on Annie, he missed her cribbing to her Babaji, He missed her smile, he missed her childish antics, he missed her innocent yet meaningful talks, he missed her care, he missed her melodious voice, he missed her musical laughter, he missed HER!!!!! Yes he missed her nd no matter how much he tried to deny or run away from this fact but he can’t. Nd that day he was just not able to control himself anymore nd had called her.

 

It had been two weeks since he was here nd he haven’t heard her voice. He knows she had called him often but Everytym he asked his secretary to tell her that he’s busy in meeting. But that day he desperately wanted to talk to her. He tried hard to control his heart but that day his heart went out of control nd at last he gave up in front of his heart. he just wanted to hear his voice because right now he was not in the state of any kind of confrontation therefore he called at landline of his room nd waited impatiently for the call to be answered nd wen finally she picked up the phone Maan had forget every other thing nd all he could hear is her sweet voice which he missed terribly in these 2 weeks. Wen she asked who’s on the other side den he desperately wanted to tell that it was him but he controlled himself nd just closed his eyes listening to her voice which was soothing his aching heart but he jerked his eyes open wen she asked him wen he’s coming back. He was surprised to know that she recognized that it was him wen he haven’t even said a word. Den how she had recognized him.

 

He wanted to talk so many things to her, to tell her so many things, to tell her to take care of herself in his absence, to tell her that he was missing her terribly, to tell her that this distance was for their own good but at that moment his lips just got sealed nd all he could do is to listen to her Khamoshi like she was listening his nd wen he felt that he wont be able to control himself then he just disconnected the call. He could feel her muffling her sobs on the other side nd he just can’t able to bear it yet he’s the reason of it. Frustrated on himself he goes near the window of his room nd stand looking outside.

 

The cool breeze was soothing his body but the ache in his heart is still the same. He looked at the city outside illuminating with lights but there’s all darkness around him nd he was afraid that this darkness wont consume him nd most importantly consume Geet nd their relationship. By now he was sure that what he feels for Geet is not just a physical attraction because if it was then it would have faded by now staying far away from her but it didn’t infact now he yearns more for just her one look. These feelings are different. These are something pure, something divine, something which he feared to call as “LOVE”. How can it be Love? Love just happens once, it can’t happen twice nd he had fallen in Love with Sameera once den how can he fall in Love with Geet now. Wasn’t it be unfair to both Geet nd Sameera, he thought as he closed his eyes wishing someone to give the answers of the questions running in his mind.

 

“Sameera, why had you left me to face all this alone like this? You wanted me to marry Geet nd I did for your happiness because I Love you den what are these feelings which I am going through now. Y I am feeling so differently for Geet which I can feel just for you? Why I am feeling so restless for not seeing her, for not hearing her voice from so long? It’s not right I know but then y do I feel that nothing could be more perfect then this? I don’t know what I should do Sameera. I am stuck up in the middle of the river Sameera please take me out from it before I drown in it nd take Geet along with me too. Please tell me what I should do now.” Maan murmured while closing his eyes confessing his inner turmoil to the person whom both he nd Geet loved the most

 

“Maan!” he heard a familiar voice behind him nd he snapped open his eyes nd turn around only to find Sameera standing over dere with a smiling face.

 

“Sameera” he murmured not believing his eyes. How could she be here? Is she real or was it his dream

 

“You were missing me na so I am here.” Sameera said as she came near him while flashing her best smile nd Maan smiled seeing her smiling.

 

“Sameera, you are really here. I can’t believe it” Maan said as he cupped her face to ensure that it was not his dream.

 

“You need me nd I wont be there how can it be possible Maan. But I am disappointed with you right now. You don’t love me anymore right?” Sameera said turning away from him pouting.

 

“No Sameera it’s not true. I Love you, I really Love you. Infact I can’t give your place to someone else. I know you must be upset the way I am feeling for Geet now-a-days but trust me Sameera that it’s all unintentional. It was not in my control but I promise that I’ll control myself soon. I’ll get a grip on my desires for Geet. I’ll hold myself from flowing in this flow of emotions. No one can take your place Sameera, trust me.” Maan said as he desperately tried to make her believe his love for her while turning her towards him.

 

“That is the problem Maan; you are holding yourself from moving on. Thatsy I said that you don’t love me anymore.” Sameera said in a serious tone while looking deep into his eyes

 

“Sameera I do not understand what you are trying to say.” Maan asked rather confused not able to understand head nd tail of anything.

 

“Maan I am no more in your life nd I’ll never return still you are holding me within you nd along with holding yourself. You know y I asked Geet to marry you because I don’t want you to stuck up in your life. I want you to move on in your life Maan. I want you to have each nd every happiness of your life which you deserve. I don’t want you to die each nd every second by mourning on my death. That won’t make any difference Maan rather it’ll just hurt me more. nd dere’s no other person perfect then Geet with whom you can move on in ur lyf” Sameera said as she placed her hand on his cheek trying to make him understand the reality of his life.

 

“No Sameera I can’t�..” Maan tried to protest wen Sameera interrupted.

 

“Maan I was your past nd Geet is your present nd your future too nd you can’t ruin your present nd future by being stuck up in your past. Listen to your heart Maan. Try to realize the depth of your feelings for Geet. Nothing is wrong in it Maan infact nothing could be more perfect then this. You are not doing any sin by feeling like this for Geet. She deserves Ur Love, she needs your Love nd more then her you deserve her, you need her Love. Accept your feelings Maan. They are not sinful infact nothing could be more pure nd divine then this. you are not doing any injustice to me or Geet by feeling for her like this but ya if you keep on running from these feelings nd hold yourself from moving on then you are doing injustice; not only to me but to Geet too who had no fault in this. You Love her Maan, you really Love her nd there’s nothing wrong in it. Please don’t run away from your feelings nd give pain to both yourself nd Geet. Accept it before its too late. And Maan “Love can happen Twice” nd dere should be no regret to accept it.” Sameera said as she smiled with her last sentence wiping away the lone tear escaped from Maan’s eyes

 

“Sameera��” Maan tried to say something but couldn’t as he was too much choked from inside.

 

“You may run away from whole world Maan, you can run away from Geet or me too but Maan Geet stays here (she said pointing towards his heart), in your heart nd you can’t run away from yourself. You can’t run away from the reality that you Love Geet. You really Love her, it can be seen in your eyes otherwise you won’t be thinking about her all the tym since you came here, you wouldn’t have called her just to hear her voice. you are not in peace even for a second since you came here. this is what we called Love right? Then y there’s hesitation to accept it. Move on in your lyf with Geet Maan. Listen to your heart. Give a chance to yourself to Love again, to dream again, to be happy again. This is what your heart wants nd dis is wat you want too just not able to accept it for now.” Sameera said nd paused for a while to look at his reaction.

 

“Free me Maan! We were not “Destined To Be”. It’s you and Geet who is “Destined To Be” nd will always be not in this birth but every birth. Sometimes even God can commit mistakes nd in our case he did commit this mistake by making us falling in Love with each other wen we were never meant to be but then he corrected his mistake too with me taking away from this world nd bringing Geet to your Life that too by me. May be Babaji too wanted this thatsy all this has happened with us nd now it’s you nd Geet who are together. Nd now I need to go Maan, I need to go. I need to find the person with whom I am “Destined To Be”. But I can’t go until you’ll free me. Please free me Maan so that I could go to the world where I can find my soul mate with whom I am “Destined To Be”. Please free me.” Sameera said while tears escaping her eyes nd Maan nodded his head in no like a child.

 

“Nd what about me Sameera. You asked me to free you because you need to find your soul mate. My heart wants to be with Geet because it can’t stay away from her. You wanted me to be with her because you wanted me to see me happy nd move on in my lyf. But in amidst of these where should I go? I know somewhere in my heart that Geet had became an integral part of my life but next moment I remind of you nd I feel like I am wrong. I can’t feel for her in this way. Even now wen you had cleared each nd every turmoil of my heart I am still not sure whether I’ll be able to move on or not. Y cant you just come back Sameera? Y cant you be just with me?” Maan said nd Sameera rolled over her eyes seeing the adamnance of this man who is still ignoring his heart in front of his mind. She knows that he’s head over heels in love with her sister yet he’s scared to accept it.

 

“I’ll always be with you Maan nd I am still with you. You’ll find me everywhere you’ll see. In Dadimaa, Dev, Annie, Vicky, Maa, Papa, Nayantara, Savera nd even Nakul too, in everyone you’ll find me Maan. You are not alone. Don’t let yourself feel alone.” Sameera said with an assuring smile trying to make him understand what he really wants

 

“But I need you Sameera. I need you as a whole; I need you as a person.” Maan said as he cupped her face showing his helplessness.

 

Sameera said nothing but just gave him a knowing smile confusing Maan nd next moment he saw Geet standing in front of him instead of Sameera looking at him smiling with all the love in her eyes while he was cupping her face looking at her confused. Where is Sameera? And how come Geet is here at this moment, he thought as he looked at Geet who was bringing her face close to his. She tip toed nd gave a soft peck on his cheek nd then returned back to her previous position looking at him lovingly.

 

“I’ll always be there with you. I’ll never leave your side no matter what because I Love you. I Love you Maan.” She whispered looking deep into his eyes with a smile of contentment on her face

 

Maan jerked open his eyes nd looked around himself only to find him all alone still standing near the window. There’s no Sameera, no Geet nothing. It was only him who was present in this room nd no one else was present over her neither Sameera nor Geet. his eyes searched everywhere to get a trace of anyone of them but it was all futile. he pushed back his hairs unbelievingly not able to understand anything.

 

So does that mean that he was imagining all this? they were not here; he thought as he sat on the couch nd closed his eyes leaning back. If all this were the part of his imagination, then why it all felt so real? he was not able to understand anything that was happening with him. Did Sameera really came to give the answer of all his questions or was it that it was his confrontation with his own heart, with his own inner self whose voice he was suppressing from so long. But wen did anyone is able to suppress their heart’s voice. the more you try to suppress the more it’ll call out to you. he recalled the confrontation he had with Sameera few moments back nd tries to understand her each nd every word.

 

Everything was moving like a film in front of his eyes as he reminds of Sameera’s words. Can it be possible that really he nd Sameera were not meant to be with each other thatsy all this has happened in their lives. Nd his heart, y it craves for Geet if wat he felt for her is just a physical attraction. He ponders on Sameera’s words along with his own logics nd ideologies nd more he though of it more he gets confused. Nd then at that moment he recalled the how Sameera’s face transformed into Geet’s wen he said that he need her as a person nd how Geet had confessed that she’ll never leave his side because she loves him nd he jerked his eyes stood upright trying to get the depth of Sameera’s nd Geet’s words.

 

“What was that Sameera wanted to tell me like this? That Geet had already taken her place in my lyf nd heart unknown to myself.” He thought as he looked at Sameera’s pic in his wallet trying to put two nd two together to understand what’s actually is happening in his lyf which he was not able to figure out.

 

It’s been 2 weeks since Maan had called Geet nd since the day he called her a new hope starts arising in Geet’s heart. Hope, that he’ll come back soon; Hope that everything will be normal between them soon. And since that day her wait for him has started with a new zeal. It was as if his one phone call has given strength to her dyeing hope. Though he didn’t spoke a word to her that day yet she could read his quietness nd can understand what he was going through over dere nd why did he called her. She knows he too was missing her just like the way she is missing him nd datsy he had called her.

 

She was counting each nd every day for him to return impatiently. She can’t even express how much she has missed him. She missed his killer smile, she missed those alluring eyes of his which seems to burn her body in desire, she missed the warmth of his embrace which was always dere wenever she needs him, she miss his smell around her, she miss those secret good night pecks on his forehead that she use to give him wen he was fast asleep without his knowledge, she miss making coffee for him, she miss arranging clothes for him every morning, she miss their conversation on this thing or other, she missed their comforting words with which he soothes all her restlessness, she missed HIM!!!!! yes she miss him like anything nd desperately waiting for him to come back so that she could tell him what her life is without him nd how much essential is he for her. He was as essential for her as her breath. Nd without him she can’t live even for a minute.

 

Though her behaviour was still the same yet there is an unknown satisfaction in her heart, that even being miles away Maan remembered her nd this satisfaction was enough to bring back the glow on her face to some extent. Yet his distance has made her aloof from everyone. Since the day Maan had called her she waited each nd every day for his call but Maan haven’t called her after that day yet she waited nd waited. She too wanted to test to which extent he’s going to keep her away from him nd extent of her wait for him. People say that Love makes a person crazy nd it’s true in Geet’s case. Yes she’s crazily in love with her husband nd will love him till her last breath.

 

Her each day begins with her wait for him nd her each night ended with clutching his shirt close to her while sleeping on couch to get his feel nd warmth around her. Yes she didn’t sleep on the bed since the tym Maan had gone to London, she just couldn’t. Therefore her every night ended by sleeping on couch holding his shirt close to her so that she could feel him close to her nd her aching heart can get little relief. Dadimaa though was happy to see that glow getting back on her face yet she was worried due to her aloofness nd the distance between Maan nd Geet. She knows that something had definitely went wrong between them nd she wanted to talk to Maan or Geet regarding this but seeing Geet’s current situation she just cant ask anything to her while Maan always avoided this topic. Sighing she too just waits for Maan to return.

 

Vidyut was once again back from base after his ground duties nd seeing Maan’s absence nd Geet’s aloofness he sensed something fishy nd his sharp mind instantly understands that something is definitely wrong between Maan nd Geet. Nd as he enquired about it Dadimaa nd others though indirectly he was confirmed that all is not well between them. Taking this as opportunity he tried many tymes to talk to her or to grab her attention so that he could brainwash her nd get back what was his; his Geet. but no matter how much he tries he had to face failure each nd Everytym as Geet was so much lost in Maan’s love nd her wait for him dat she never pays attention to what he was saying nd even worse sometimes she just say that she was feeling tired so she cant talk now wenever he comes to talk to her. In other words, she had completely avoided Vidyut’s presence around her. It was as if he didn’t exist for her which was true anyways As if she had forgotten whole world including him in the Love of Maan. For only Maan’s name is engraved in her heart nd Vidyut was like a close chapter for her now. She never had feelings for before too but it was as if now she had forgotten him as a friend too. Vidyut though was enraged with this behavior of hers but tried to maintain his cool so that he could make things falls back into right place.

 

“Enough is enough Geet. You are coming with us today nd its final” Annie said in a final tone

 

“Don’t even open your mouth to give any excuse because we are not going to buy it.” Savera said wen she saw Geet opening her mouth to give another excuse of hers nd Geet instantly shuts up her mouth twisting her lips.

 

Both Annie nd Savera are trying there best to bring Geet back to herself since the tym Maan had left but Geet was too much adamant to be aloof so today they decided to take her out from this aloofness by hook or by crook. So here they are trying to take her with them for shopping from past 1 hour nd wen they saw that she’s still not ready to give up they decided to try another way to take her out with them. So here they are literally threatening her to take her with them

 

“Please guys! Y don’t you understand. I don’t feel…”

 

“Like going anywhere, isn’t it?” Savera said completing her incomplete sentence arching her brows nd Geet nodded her head in yes innocently

 

“Geet, we are listening to same line from past 1 month so now either change this line or just come with us because we are definitely not going to buy this excuse of yours.” Annie said sternly. These two devils are hell bent today to take her out, she thought as she looked other side.

 

“What’s wrong with you Geet? Since the tym Maan Bhai has gone to London you had become so lifeless. I mean this is not the first tym Bhai had gone somewhere but this is for the first tym you are behaving like this. Did anything went wrong between you nd Bhai?” Annie asked concerned nd Geet looked at Savera who was equally as clueless as Annie as Geet haven’t told about that night to her too.

 

“Nothing like that Annie everything is fine between me nd Maan. Trust me.” Geet said with a faint smile because last thing she wants is to family know about the truth of their relation.

 

“Then what’s the problem that you had become so aloof to everyone since the tym Jiju had gone to London.” Savera groaned in irritation not able to find out the hidden pain in her friends life making both Geet nd Annie jumped due to her sudden outburst.

 

“It’s nothing like that Savera. Ok you both want me to go to shopping with you? fine I’ll go with both of you. Happy now?” Geet said finally sighing in defeat nd both Savera nd Annie cheered in happiness.

 

“Great, ye Hui Na baat. O God Geet you don’t know how much happy I am. You know I had already planned what nd where we are going to buy. Nd Geet we’ll buy something to renovate your room too. I mean just look at this room. It looks so dull. Ye Maan Bhai bhi Na, his room is exactly like him, boring. But don’t worry we’ll change whole of its picture. Like this painting we’ll remove it from here nd will place something else. nd see there’s not a single pic of you nd Maan Bhai together, we’ll put both of urs wedding pic here in the centre of the wall nd dis Sameera Bhabhi’s nd Bhai pic we’ll remove nd will place…” Annie was ranting in excitement wen Geet interrupted in between.

 

“No Annie we won’t change anything in this room.” Geet said interrupting her in mid nd Annie looked at her confused

 

“Annie Maan doesn’t like any changes especially in his room nd I don’t want to do anything what he don’t like. He had many memories with each nd every belonging of this room nd I just can’t keep those memories away from him. When Maan will come back den I want this room to be exactly the way he likes so that he won’t feel stranger in his own room. Each nd every thing of this room will remain at its own place nd will not go anywhere. This room will remain in the way it is because like Maan I too love it in this way only. Therefore we are not going to renovate it all” Geet said with a sweet smile lost somewhere in her own words as her mind nd heart again got captured by only one name nd that is “Maan”.

 

Savera nd Annie just looked at her unblinkingly not believing that she’s really a human. Here she loves her husband beyond the limits of sanity nd he’s still living with the memories of his past nd inspite of being jealous or pained she’s here supporting him in that. How anyone can love someone so crazily that she didn’t have any expectations from him, they thought as they looked at Geet lost in the thoughts of Maan.

 

“Fine Geet, no one will change anything in this room. But abhi you need to change” Savera said breaking Geet’s trance nd Geet looked at her confused.

 

“Arey for going out. Are you planning to go shopping with us in these clothes? Now c’mon go nd change fast. We are getting late.” Savera said literally pushing Geet towards the washroom along with her closed without giving her any chance to protest further.

 

**************************************************

 

Nayantara was pacing to nd fro in her room fuming badly. She really doesn’t understand that what magic did Geet had spelled on everyone that no one sees anything beyond her. Just like Annie nd Savera who were hell bent in taking her out for shopping much to her protest. Nayantara was passing by Geet’s room wen she overheard their conversation nd saw how they are successful in finally taking Geet out. Not once did they ask Nayantara. Forget about asking they didn’t even thought of taking her out. Does she need to tell everyone that she too exists in the same house only, in case they forgot it? But it seems that no one even care to think about her. its been an hour since Geet had gone out but Nayantara mood was still the same

 

“Enough is enough. Now I can’t tolerate it anymore. What is it in this Geet that I don’t have? No one sees anything beyond her. Dadimaa, Vicky, Annie nd even my own husband Dev everyone seems to be so crazy for her. I thought that after Sameera I’ll be the one who’ll get utmost attention in this house but Hume kya pata tha that after Sameera’s death this Geet will roam all around in this house like her shadow. Nd the worst part is that everyone loves her beyond any limit. Geet is happy so every member celebrates her happiness, she is sad then everyone mourns in this house. But y should I complaint about others wen my own husband never cares about me but that Geet. he seems to be so fond of her then his own wife. Nd even Maan Veerji seems to be so close to her. Ok agree now he’s not here but he’ll come back sooner or later nd what I am seeing nd feeling between both of them now-a-days it seems that they both are very much close to each other. It’s not a good sign wat if Maan Veerji names all the property under Geet’s name. No, I can’t let this happen. I had to do something before everything slips from my hand. By hook or by crook I’ll get my own position in this house.” Nayantara said determinedly as her evil mind started working on the plan to get rid from this trouble named Geet. She was thinking only of some plan wen she heard her cellphone ringing. She frowned when she looked at the name of caller. It shows “Maan Veerji”. It was strange Maan never calls her then why is he calling her now.

 

“Hello Nayantara!” she heard Maan’s voice from the other side as soon as she picked up the phone.

 

“Ji Veerji. How are you? You called me? Anything important”

 

“I am fine Nayantara. Ya I just called to inform that I am returning back tonight so ask Dev to get ready with all the files of Khanna’s project as we have a presentation tomorrow itself. Infact I am calling from airport only. I tried calling Dev’s cell but its coming not reachable so do inform him without forgetting anything.” Maan said in a stern voice to which Nayantara just said “Ok” meekly nd cuts the call.

 

“Great now I am left for this only. To be an informer nd inform everyone about each other.” Nayantara said throwing away her cellphone in frustration. Just then Geet’s word buzzed in her mind that she said regarding renovation of room nd an evil smirk crept on her face finally getting a perfect plan.

 

“So Maan Veerji doesn’t like changes but what if the changes are done by his own wife. Come soon Veerji. A big surprise is waiting for you.” she said smirking nd headed outside the room to execute her plan

 

*********************************************************

 

Dadimaa was sitting in her room lost in some deep thoughts. The way Maan nd Geet’s relationship is going is really worrying her a lot. It’s been a month nd neither Geet’s behaviour changed nor there any news for Maan’s arrival. But she don’t even know what’s the problem between them as both of them are too stubborn to say anything. But she can’t sit over here also like this. She need to do something before everything gets worse. Dev came inside her room to talk about something only to find her lost in some thoughts

 

“What happen Dadimaa? You seem tensed.” Dev asked breaking Savitri Devi’s thoughts nd she took a deep breath.

 

“Yes Dev I am tensed. I am tensed about the way Maan nd Geet’s relationship going. There’s something amiss. Geet never behaved like this before neither did Maan was so much ignorant towards her like this.” Dadimaa said sighing heavily

 

“You are right Dadimaa. It’s so strange for both of them behaving like this. you know Dadimaa I thought by taking Geet to the office I’ll divert her mind for sometym but nothing worked.”

 

Tell me one thing Dev, did anything has happened between them in my absence.” Dadimaa asked nd Dev went thoughtful.

 

“No Dadimaa everything was fine between them. Infact in the reception party of Raichand’s, you should have seen them Dadimaa; they were so lost in each other. Anyone could tell seeing them that they both are crazily in Love. Don’t know what had happened between them.” Dev said shrugging his shoulders making Dadimaa thoughtful.

 

“Hum batate hai Dadimaa.” both heard Nayantara’s voice from behind intruding their conversation.

 

“Sorry to interrupt Dadimaa but I can’t hold myself back seeing both of you in worry.” Nayantara said as she stepped inside with faking concern.

 

“It’s ok Nayantara. You wanted to say something?” Dadimaa said coming straight to the point as its indigestible for her to see Nayantara so concerned.

 

“Dadimaa, I overheard your conversation with Dev nd infact I am also worrying about that only.” Nayantara said nd Dev arched his brows in confusion. NT nd getting worried that too for Geet, this is something unusual.

 

“I know Dev what you are thinking? I know that may be all of you think that I don’t like Geet but it’s not true. She’s like my sister only nd I too feel concern for her it’s just that I m not able to express it.” NT said as soon as she noticed Dev’s expressions

 

“Anyways Dadimaa I am here to give a solution of your problem. Dadimaa we all know in what circumstances Veerji nd Geet got married nd we also know that how deeply Veerji was in Love with Sameera Bhabhi. Though we all are noticing closeness between Veerji nd Geet now-a-days but still Veerji is living with the memories of Sameera Bhabhi. Infact he didn’t even removed any of Bhabhi’s pic from his room nd this to you all must have also seen that there’s not a single pic of Veerji nd Geet in the room.”

 

“What do you want to say Nayantara? Say clearly” Dev said not understanding where she is hinting at.

 

“Dev what if we renovate Veerji’s room. I mean removing all those old belongings nd decorating it with new one. I mean it’s very important to free Veerji from his old memories then only he can move ahead in his life.” Nayantara said looking expectantly at Dadimaa who went thoughtful listening to her.

 

“What rubbish are you talking NT? Bro will never like it nd this can worse the situation.” Dev protested not having the good feeling about her idea.

 

“Trust me Dev nothing is wrong in it. you only think that how can their relationship will move ahead if Veerji will stuck up in his old memories. This is the best for them.”

 

“NT is right. We should do this.” Dadimaa said before Dev could protest

 

“I understand your worry Dev but NT is also not wrong. Maan need to get rid of those old memories then only he can move ahead. I don’t think NT is wrong anywhere.” She said nd NT smirked seeing the success of first step her plan

 

“Thank you Dadimaa. I had planned each nd every thing. Maan Veerji has called me few mins back nd he told that he’s coming back tonight nd even Geet is not here so y not complete everything today itself. It’ll be a good surprise for both Veerji nd Geet.” NT said excitedly

 

“But NT how will everything happen so soon.”

 

“You don’t worry for that Dadimaa. I’ll handle everything. Just give me your consent.” She said looking at her expectantly nd as soon as Dadimaa gave her approval she excitedly went out from room to do all the preparations

 

****************************************************

 

It was 9 of the night wen Maan finally came back home from airport. Geet is still not came back as Savera nd Annie didn’t let her. Even she was with Savera nd Annie but she was hardly paying any concentration on it. Not even she paid attention in the movie that they had seen much to Annie’s insistence. There was an unknown restlessness in her heart all the while. It was as if something is going to happen today. Like her wait is going to over. She kept her hand on her heart which was thudding so loudly just by thinking of Maan’s name. Strangely she could sense his fragrance in the air today. Her heart was fluttering like it knows that he’s here now nd very soon she’ll be in his arms. Many tymes she looked around herself to see if he’s somewhere around her but was disappointed to find no one over dere. God knows why is she feeling like this today. Is it any sign given by God or her wait is now taking toll on her, she thought as she absent mindedly listen to Savera’s nd Annie’s talk not knowing about the sudden twist of her fate yet again.

 

As Maan entered the mansion he found it unusually quiet. No one is there in the living room not even Geet nd a sudden thought of not seeing Geet after whole 1 month had filled his heart with restlessness. This whole month was so tough for him. First he had to stay away from Geet then his restlessness nd den his confrontation with Sameera or his own self everything was too much for him. Even after spending next two whole weeks contemplating on Sameera’s words he was still not able to accept the fact that he Loves Geet. he tried many ways to make his restless heart calm but nothing worked so finally he decided to come back home nd now wen he’s here he just wants to see her one glimpse but she was no where to see.

 

“Probably she’s in room nd everyone else slept early.” He thought as he sighed heavily nd headed towards his room after asking Nakul to bring coffee for him not knowing the surprise waiting for him.

 

*********************************************

 

Maan stopped in his tracks seeing the sight in front of him as soon as he stepped inside the room. Whole picture of room was changed. It doesn’t seem to be his room anymore. For once he even thought that probably he had came in some wrong room but he was sure that it’s his room only. His fist nd jaw clenched tight in anger as he looked around whole room. The walls which use to adorn with his nd Sameera’s pic are now adorning with his nd Geet’s pic, all the small nd big items of decoration he bought with Sameera are replaced with the new ones nd what caught his attention is the wedding pic of his nd Geet in the middle of the wall where his nd Sameera’s wedding pic was use to be before. A sudden rush of Anger course in his veins as he found all these changes in the room. It was just not the items but his memories with Sameera which now must be lyieng somewhere in the corner of the store room like an old trash.

 

“Nakul! Nakul!” Maan called out loud in anger nd in no tym Nakul was there

 

“Who did all this? I am asking you something answer me Damn it!” Maan groaned in anger seeing him dipping his head.

 

“Arey Veerji you are back.” he heard NT’s voice as she stepped inside before Nakul can say anything. She gestures Nakul to go away from there as soon as she came inside nd Nakul literally ran away from there.

 

“NT who did all this? Who had removed mine nd Sameera’s pic from this room?” Maan bombarded her with his questions nd NT smirked mentally as this is wat she’s expecting.

 

“Veerji… Woh… hum…”

 

“Answer me NT!!!! Who did this?” He groaned yet again in anger seeing her fumbling with words.

 

“Woh Veerji… I don’t know” NT said looking other side making Maan suspicious.

 

“Look at me nd den answer NT. I know you know about it. Tell me Damn it!!!” he roared in anger making NT jump in fear

 

“I am saying true Veerji. I don’t know about it but ya I heard Geet nd Annie talking about the renovation of this room.” She blurted out faking innocence nd Maan’s expressions immediately turned from anger into shock as soon as she mentioned Geet’s name.

 

“Geet” he mumbled absent mindedly not believing that Geet could do this.

 

“Yes Veerji. Woh I was passing from here then I heard them conversing about the renovation of this room. Nd they are not even at home also. They had gone out for shopping. May be Geet only did this.” NT said keeping a keen observation on Maan’s expressions which was the way she has expected.

 

“Waise Veerji it’s your personal matter but I seriously feel that Geet shouldn’t have done this. I mean they are not just pics it’s your memories with Sameera Bhabhi nd by removing it like this it’s an insult to them. I agree that she’s Ur wife now so it must be difficult for her to accept your Love for someone else but she must understand you. By removing all this like this just because she wants her place in your lyf nd heart is really not acceptable. I didn’t expect something like this from Geet atleast.” NT said in order to add more fuel in the fire nd Maan just clenched his fist in anger

 

“Leave me alone NT.” He said coldly nd NT find it the best opportunity to leave so she left from there but not before giving a fake sympathetic look to him.

 

Maan ponders over NT’s words as soon she left from there. His heart was not ready to believe that Geet could do something like this especially then wen he himself had witnessed her relationship with Sameera but what he’s seeing now, he cant ignore that too. Once again he was torn between his heart nd mind. He was again fighting a battle between his heart nd mind which were going in two different directions. His heart is not believing on a single word that NT has said but his mind was clouded with suspicions after witnessing the sight in front of him. He groaned out loud in frustration not able to choose any path that could let him in peace. Wasn’t all the turmoil that he was facing since past 1 month was enough that now this has happened to add to his miseries.

 

“Why had you done this Geet? I am still not able to believe that you had done something like this. But how should I ignore all this that I am seeing. You have to answer me Geet. You have to.” Maan muttered helplessly as he found himself fighting a battle between his heart nd mind yet again.

 

**************************************************

 

Its been more then half an hour since Maan came back wen Geet had returned with Annie all tired nd exhausted only to be greeted by Dadimaa in the living room who was looking at her with a mischievous smile. Both Annie nd Geet looked at each other nd den back at her but she didn’t stopped grinning nd looked at Geet mischievously.

 

“What happen Dadimaa? You are looking very happy today?” Geet said as she sat in the couch besides her removing her sandals.

 

“Ya I am very happy today?” She said nd Geet looked at her suspiciously.

 

“Why Dadimaa did something big happened today?” Annie said stretching her muscles.

 

“Ya something big has happened but not for us but for Geet.”

 

“For me? What is it Dadimaa?” Geet asked curiously to which Dadimaa gave her a knowing smile. Geet keeps on looking at her confusingly but soon her eyes widens in surprise as realization hits her hard where Dadimaa is hinting at nd a wide smile crept on her face

 

“Dadimaa’ you mean… You mean Maan… Maan is back” Geet asked between the sudden rush of excitement not believing her ears

 

“Yes Beta, your Maan is back. He’s in his room. I didn’t meet him yet because I wanted you to be the first one to meet him. Go nd meet him” Dadimaa said nd as son as she gets the confirmation she literally ran away towards their room forgetting everything behind. Annie tried calling her but she was in no state to listen anything.

 

“Let her go Annie. She had waited for long for Maan to come back. Now she won’t listen to anyone. After whole 1 month I am seeing that glow back on Geet’s face nd it’s just because of Maan.” Dadimaa said smiling amidst her tears as she looked at Geet retreating figure

 

**************************************************

 

Anything or anyone doesn’t seem to stop Geet at this moment as she ran bare feet towards their room hurting her leg with the nearby table in the process. But she care less for that. The mere news of Maan’s homecoming had given wings to her nd she feels like a free bird flying in air freely. Maan is back, her Maan is back is the only thing running in her mind at that moment. God knows how many tymes in this 1 month she had dreamt of this moment nd it seems that finally her wait is going to be over.

 

She stopped right at the door of the room as she saw him standing in the room facing his back towards her. Oh! She was so happy to see him standing over dere in flesh nd bones, whole month, whole 1 month she had waited just for his one glimpse nd today seeing him in front of her doesn’t seem to be less then a dream to her. She smiled amidst her tears seeing her soul finally coming back to her nd next moment she rushed nd hugged him tight from behind out of sheer happiness seeking his warmth which she terribly missed in this 1 month, unknown to the storm going on in Maan’s heart which is going to shatter all her hope yet again.

 

Maan was standing in the middle of room still lost in his thoughts. Anger, helplessness, rage, frustration, pain; all these emotions he was feeling right now with the sudden turn of events. Sameera’s words rang back in his mind as he looked at his nd Geet’s picture all over the room in place of his nd Sameera’s, along with NT’s words making him even more frustrated on himself. Why it is so hard for him to accept everything the way it is, why it is so difficult for him to accept that Geet had taken Sameera’s place in his heart nd life. the way Sameera’s face transformed in to Geet’s that day was still fresh in his mind making him more nd more restlessness nd now this renovation of the room has just added more fuel to his miseries. He was still trying to contemplate between right nd wrong when he finds a soft frame crushing on his back hard nd a pair of arms hugging him tight from his waist. He don’t have to guess who it is as he could sense her with her aroma. It’s none other then Geet who was hugging him like her life was depended on him.

 

“Aap waapas aa Gaye. I can’t tell you how much happy I am. Maine Aapko bahut miss kiya Maan. Please, Dobara kabhi mujhe aise chod ke mat jayiyega.” Geet almost whispered expressing her longingness without him unknown of the turmoil going in her husband’s heart

 

[You are back. I can’t tell you how much happy I am. I really missed you a lot Maan. Please don’t leave me alone nd go like this again.]

 

Maan closed his eyes as soon as Geet’s words reached in his ears. But he was too much burning in his own miseries to feel the longingness in her voice. Everything that was happening with him since past 2 months nd what he was saw now was taking a toll on him blocking all his senses to differentiate between right nd wrong. And as a result he removed Geet’s hands nd harshly pulled her in front so that he could face her. Geet who was till now lost in the warmth of his embrace looked at him shocked when she found his eyes spitting fire. She looked at his one eye to another trying to find the reason of his fury but nothing seems to hit her at that moment.

 

 

“Why had you done this Geet? Answer me.” She heard his voice laced in anger nd knotted her brows in confusion not understanding what he’s talking about

 
“Don’t act like you don’t know anything Geet. I seriously haven’t expected this from you.” Maan said rather painfully seeing Geet all confused.

 

“Maan” she muttered absent mindedly not understanding anything.

 

“Why you removed mine nd Sameera’s pic Geet? Why you had changed each nd every thing in this room that has connected me with her? WHY???” he roared out loud in anger nd Geet looked around herself only to find the whole picture of the room changed. She was too lost till now in happiness of him coming back to notice the changes in their room. But she had no idea who did this

 

“You knew Geet, you knew it very well what these memories meant to me yet you did this. WHY???” Maan’s loud voice broke her trance as he pulled her closer while grabbing her arms harshly nd she looked at him scared.

 

 

“Maan I…” she tried to protest only to be interrupted by Maan.

 

“Not a word Geet. What do you want to prove ha… that you had taken Sameera’s place? I told you that no one can take Sameera’s place in my heart. Absolutely No One!!!! Yet you tried this.” He spoke in sheer agony holding her arms tight almost digging his nails in her flesh while Geet hissed in pain.

 

 

“Maan I haven’t…” she tried to protest yet again hissing in pain only to be interrupted by him again.

 

“You can’t take Sameera’s place Geet. Did you hear that Geet, you can’t take her place neither in my heart nor in my life.” he spoke harshly which was actually his own helplessness over his heart speaking out while making his grip more strong such that his nails were digging on her soft flesh hurting her even more.

 

“Maan you are hurting me.” Geet moaned in pain as tears started clouding her eyes seeing his mistrust on her.

 

All the happiness nd excitement that she was feeling few mins back was now replaced with pain nd tears seeing him behaving like this nd especially then when she was not even at fault. Maan gripped her heart more strongly expressing his helplessness. The pain he was feeling right now due to the turmoil of his own heart, he wanted to Geet to feel the same. Geet closed her eyes nd tears started flowing down from her eyes as the pain gets unbearable to her. It was not just a physical pain, this tym her heart was screaming in pain seeing the result of all her Love, all her wait, all her sacrifices being this. Maan’s expressions soften wen he saw tears flowing from Geet’s eyes making him realize what he is doing nd he instantly loosen his grip on her arms moving a step behind, Geet opened her tear filled eyes nd looked at him in pain while Maan looked other side not able to bear tears in those hazels but he too was hurted then how can he sooth her.

 

 

“You hurted me Geet. You really hurted me a lot.” Maan said before leaving the room leaving Geet alone in the pool of her pain.

 

She thumped on the floor crying bitterly due to the sudden turn of events. What has she done that he was punishing her like this? Was loving someone selflessly is such a big mistake that she gets this punishment? He didn’t even listen to her nd gave her his verdict. When did she try to take Sameera’s place? Inspite of being in Love with him crazily, she never expected anything from him nor did she ask for any of her right. Ok agreed that she wanted to confess her Love for him but that too because she wanted to take him out from his guilt trip. All she did is to love him selflessly nd all what she got in return is an accusation that she’s trying to take Sameera’s place that too by the person she loves the most. She can’t even think of taking her Di’s place no matter how much she craves for his Love. Her heart was bleeding as it was not only hurt this tym, it was completely broken. All her wait all this while seems to be futile due to his just one accusation.

 

“Geet” he heard someone beckoning from behind nd she instantly recognized whose voice it was. It’s none other then Vidyut. Geet instantly got up from floor nd wiped away her tears still facing her back towards him.

 

“Geet I heard nd saw whatever happened between you nd Maan.” he said wishing her to turn back to look at him. This is the golden chance for him nd he just can’t let it go.

 

“Geet, I told you before also that Maan doesn’t love you. He can never love you as he still loves Sameera. He can only give you pain like he gave just now. You still had tym Geet leave all this. You don’t deserve to get this much pain nd humiliation.” He said hoping that his words could hit the weak nerve of her nd she would consider about leaving Maan but what she said next had shocked him to the core.

 

“It’s the matter between a husband nd a wife nd I don’t want any outsider interfering in our matter so kindly stay away from it. And as for now leave me alone if you can.” Geet said coldly without any emotions still facing her back towards him while Vidyut looked at her shocked. Even after getting humiliated by Maan this much she is still not ready to listen anything against him. He keeps on looking at her unbelievingly for a while nd then left the room leaving her alone in her own miseries.

 

**************************************************

 

“Rukiye Maan” Maan heard Dadimaa’s voice beckoning him from behind as he angrily marched towards his gym making him stop dead in his tracks.

 

“What do you think you did just now with Geet?” she asked as she came nd stood in front of him along with Annie. It was clearly evident from both of their facial expressions that they heard nd saw what happened between him nd Geet.

 

“Dadimaa I don’t want to talk about this.” Maan said as he moved ahead to go to his gym only to be stopped by Dadimaa again.

 

“You can’t run away Everytym Maan. You have to listen to me.” Dadimaa’s commanding voice made him stop yet again but he didn’t turned to face her.

 

“How could you talk to Geet like this Maan? Do I need to remind you that she’s your wife? How can you accuse her like that” Dadimaa said angrily nd the last thread of Maan’s patience broke nd he turned towards her angrily.

 

“Then what do you expect from me Dadimaa? I too didn’t felt happy for accusing her like this but I was not wrong Dadimaa. What she did was truly unbearable to me. You don’t know Dadimaa what she did.” Maan said with his voice mixed with Anger nd pain

 

“Nd you think that you know everything, isn’t it? Then sorry to break the bubble Mr. Maan Singh Khurana but I know everything. I know the reason behind ur anger nd let me tell you that Geet is not at fault. She hasn’t renovated the room.” Dadimaa revealed making Maan shocked to its wits with her revelation.

 

“What are you saying Dadimaa?” he asked not believing his ears.

 

“Yes Maan you heard me right. Geet didn’t renovate the room. It was our decision to renovate it nd Geet was totally unaware about all this nd probably dis is what she too wanted to say but you didn’t heard her in front of your own anger.” Dadimaa said but Maan was hardly concentrating on anything. His mind was just wandering on one thing that Geet was innocent nd he accused her for no fault of her.

 

“O god! What had I done? Geet was innocent nd I accused her like this.” he thought as he closed his eyes in regret not knowing whether he’ll be able to fix the damage now or not unknown of the further revelation by Dadimaa which are going to make him regret even more nd this tym a big one.

 

“You are not able to believe it right? But Maan whether you believe it or not but this is the truth. Geet haven’t renovated the room infact she was not even knowing about it nd if she would have been slightest idea also den she wouldn’t have let us so that.” Dadimaa said further breaking Maan’s trance.

 

“Yes Maan Bhai it’s true. You know wen I said to Geet that we’ll renovate your room then Geet had refused straight away nd you know what she said; she said that you don’t like changes nd especially in your room nd she won’t do any thing which you don’t like. She also said that you had many memories with each nd every belongings of this room nd she just can’t keep you away from those memories nd she wanted the room to be the same only so that when you come back den you don’t feel stranger in your own room.” Annie revealed nd Maan closed his eyes in regret nd guilt. What had he done? Here she was not ready to remove even a single item of his room because he had many memories with them nd he accused her for taking away Sameera’s memory from him.

 

“Now still you had any doubts in your mind Maan or should I present any other proof in front of you? Because basically you believe on what you see right?” Dadimaa said with a tinge of sarcasm in her voice nd Maan dipped his head down in regret.

 

“Dev was right in thinking that you won’t be like this change but it was me who was adamant about it because I thought that you need to move on from your past nd accept the change in your life. I don’t think that I had to remind you Maan that you are married to Geet for almost 8 moths for now nd still you are stuck up in your past. I don’t deny that you Love Sameera deeply nd she was worth your love but you have to accept it Maan that Sameera is dead now. She’s not going to come back. Sameera was your past nd Geet is your present nd you have to live in your present for your better future. Nd that’s the reason we decided to remove Sameera’s memories from your room so that you can realize this fact nd give place to new memories in your heart but I didn’t know that my this thought will turn dreadful for Geet.” She said nd Maan just stood over dere listening to each nd every word of his Dadimaa which seems to be so familiar to him.

 

“Do you have even slightest idea Maan what went through Geet when you had left for London all of a sudden? She was like a lifeless body whose soul has left her. She went aloof from everyone, hardly comes out from her room. She neither laughs nor did she plays any kind of pranks along with Vicky nd Annie nor did talk much to anyone. it was as if her lyf was confided in that room only. The glow on her face, the spark in her eyes seems to be lost somewhere. Dev had even taken her office also with him but that too didn’t help to bring her normal self back. It was today Savera nd Annie had taken her out forcefully or else she had denied today also going anywhere. Geet had never told me Maan but I know that you had never ever called her in this 1 month to know how is she though she use to say that you talk to her every night before sleeping but I am not fool to not to see through her lie but I didn’t said anything because I don’t want her attempt to present you as a doting husband in front of the family futile. Nd today after whole 1 month I saw her being normal self, I saw the glow of her face, the spark in her eyes back. I saw that smile back on her face which was lost somewhere since the tym you had gone nd you know how it happened? It happened just by the mere news of you coming back. She just heard that you are back nd she ran away to her room to meet you to see you after whole 1 month. It was as if she had found something precious. Nd what you did, you just shattered all her happiness, all her excitement, all her hopes, you had shattered her Maan in just a matter of few seconds with your harsh words which were based just on your own assumptions.” Dadimaa said angrily making Maan even more guilty of his actions.

 

“I don’t know Maan what happened between you nd Geet that you had distanced yourself from her like this nd I wont even ask to you also as it’s the matter between a husband nd a wife nd I am no one to interfere in that but Maan I’ll interfere in what you did today because Geet is as important to me as you nd others members of the family. Nd what you did today with her is truly unacceptable nd I am really hurt nd disappointed from you. I had never expected this from you Maan, never ever. If you can’t keep her happy, if you can’t love her, if you can’t give her the place that she actually deserve then don’t do it Maan but atleast don’t hurt her like this. This is the least I can expect from you Maan.” Dadimaa said last line rather painfully before leaving from there followed by Annie who just gave maan a painful look leaving him alone in the pool of his own regrets.

 

Maan thumped on the floor on his knees as he registered each nd every word of Dadimaa making him feel more nd more guilty of his actions. He closed his eyes nd Geet’s teary face nd her painful eyes came in front of his eyes wen he was accusing her for no fault of hers. As Dadimaa’s nd Annie’s words rang in his mind along with his own words that he said to her the pain nd regret in his heart increased 10 folds. A lone tear escaped his eyes as he realized how much pain he had given her not only just physically but emotionally too just because of his one wrong assumption. How can he even think of Geet doing something like that? Had he been unaware of the bond between her and Sameera that he had said all that to her? The girl who had sacrificed her every dreams, her every wishes to fulfill just one wish of her elder sister cant even think of doing something like that nd he inspite of knowing this fact also said all those things to her which he was not suppose to just because his own turmoil was taking toll on him, just because he was so much frustrated on himself that he was ignoring what his heart was saying to him.

 

“What had I done? In my own turmoil I had hurted her. She was so happy to see me nd I just ruined it in seconds. Dadimaa said that she was like a lifeless soul in this 1 month nd that too because of me. In my own turmoil I didn’t thought that what would be going through her with my sudden departure. Nd today wen she was so excited to see me I shattered her with my baseless accusations. She was trying to say something nd I cut her Everytym. I accused her of the thing that she can’t even think of doing in her wildest dreams. She was crying, she was pained, she was hurt nd its all because of me. Why? Why I had become so insensitive at that moment that I couldn’t differentiate between right nd wrong? How will I face her now? How will I fix everything that I had ruined with my own hands? But I’ll do that. I’ll ask forgiveness from Geet nd for that I’ll bend on my knees also if I have to.” Maan thought with a determination nd get up from the floor nd headed towards his room to ask forgiveness from the angel who had just gave him happiness nd he just gave her nothing except pain

 

*******************************************************

 

Geet was lyieng on the bed sobbing badly clutching Sameera’s pic close to her heart. Maan’s harsh words were ringing continuously in her mind hurting her even more. It’s been 1 hour since there confrontation but the pain in her heart is still the same. The wound that Maan had given her is not going to heal soon nd she was not sure that whether it will heal also or not. Each nd every word of Maan was like venom which was now spreading all over her heart suffocating her even more. How could he even think of her like that? He said that he can read her eyes then why he didn’t read that she’s innocent. The skin of her arms where Maan had gripped tight was wounded due to his nail marks was burning with pain but she didn’t even care to put ointment on it. Since the tym Maan had left the room she was crying like this only in pain though she was not sure yet that which pain is more; the pain which she was having due to his nail marks on her soft skin or the pain that she was feeling in her heart currently.

 

“Di�.. Di you believe your Mishty Na�.. You know Na that I can never do anything like that�.. Then Di why Maan is not believing me�.. Why is he thinking that I had removed all those items from our room which connected him to you��? I swear di I haven’t done it�� you please say to Maan na that I haven’t done this�� he’ll believe you�. please Di tell him that I haven’t done this�.. Please” she complained to Sameera’s pic like a kid between her sobs not able to bear this much pain unknown of the fact that someone is listen to her talks nd her each nd every word was like a knife stabbing in his heart making him more nd more guilty.

 

Maan had just came back into his room to apologize to Geet wen he heard her sobbing nd he stopped dead in his tracks on the door not sure whether he’s strong enough to go inside nd face her or not. Nd that’s wen he heard her complaining to Sameera nd he didn’t missed the immense pain in her each nd every word that she uttered making him realize the intensity of his actions. He just stood over dere nd a lone tear escaped his eyes as he saw her in pain nd even worse being himself is the reason of her pain.

 

 

How will he face her now at this condition of hers when she’s so much broken nd that too due to him. But he had to do this, he had to go to her nd apologize. Already in his guilt trip he had done lots of damages but not anymore now. He was feeling guilty that’s a different thing but in his guilt, in his regret he wont hurt Geet anymore now. Therefore he somehow gathered some courage nd stepped inside with heavy heart heading towards their bed with slow steps as if trying to gather some courage before facing her.

 

Geet sensed his presence in the room as soon as he stepped inside. She don’t have to turn back nd see to know it as she could recognize him from his fragrance, from his breath but currently she’s not in state to confront him again. What if he would again accuse her of anything else; she won’t be able to bear any more harsh words of his. She already had enough for this evening. Therefore she quickly wiped away her tears nd closed her eyes tight pretending to be sleeping. She felt some weight on the bed nd she held her breath while closing her eyes tight so that she won’t get weak. Maan couldn’t see her face as she was facing her back to him but he knows that she’s not sleeping nd was trying her best to pretend to sleep. Nd as he looked over her shoulder his heart shattered into pieces seeing her clutching Sameera’s pic tight to her heart while the pillow underneath her was wet with her tears. He keeps on looking at her while she was trying her best to muffle the sob that was desperate to escape from her throat. He saw her struggling hard to not cry in front of him as she gulped the lump that had formed in her throat in order to control her sob.

 

 

Unable to sit nd saw her like that Maan get up from the bed nd went to washroom taking his clothes along to change. Geet opened her eyes as soon as she heard the door of Washroom being shut nd the tears that she was holding till now finally made its way down her eyes as she started crying once again nd didn’t realize wen she dozed off crying. Maan’s heart was not at peace as he took shower to give some relief to his aching heart which was crying in pain seeing her in tears nd the worst part is that those tears are due to him. It was him only who had said her once that he can’t see her in tears nd today she was crying due to him only. It was not the first tym that he had shouted at her for no fault of hers he had shouted at her before too but Everytym she had forgiven him with a smile on her face nd let go of everything but this tym Damage is big nd he knows that because this tym he had hurt her more then ever, this tym he had shattered her by accusing her of something which she cant even commit even in her wildest dreams. How badly he wished that he could turn back the tym nd stop himself from uttering those harsh words but the fact is that he can’t do that inspite of regretting of his actions. God knows will he able to ask apology from her also or not but he’ll not let his guilt took over him once again. This tym he’ll not run away from her nd will do everything to fix the damage that he had done.

 

 

Determining this he closed the shower nd came outside after changing into his tracks nd vests. Wen he came outside he saw that Geet had finally drifted into deep slumber nd den as if in a trance his feet automatically lead him near him. He bent down on his knees on the floor so that he could face her. He keeps on looking intently at her as he noticed her eyes still wet with tears nd the dried marks of tears in her face. Her face looks so pale yet she was looking so innocent while sleeping nd he had hurted her so much. Maan gently extended his hand nd very slowly removed the hair strands that was coming on her face nd tucked them behind her ears caressing her soft skin in the process. He gently wiped away the tear marks from her cheek with his thumb nd that’s wen he noticed that she’s still clutching Sameera’s pic tight in her hands. He tries to removes it but she clutched it even more tight so Maan let it be like that only knowing very well that she wont let it go even in her sleep also nd here he had accused her of removing Sameera’s memories from their room

 

“I am sorry Geet. I am really very sorry. In my own turmoil, in my own frustration, in my own helplessness I had hurted you this much. You had changed yourself so much because of me, had left all those dreams behind that you use to see for you marriage nd Love life to fulfill Sameera’s last wish, had done everything to keep this marriage working nd in return I did nothing but to just give you pain, to accuse you of something which you can never do. Pls try to forgive me Geet if you can because I am definitely not able to forgive myself. I promise Geet that I’ll fix everything. I promise that I’ll bring back that smile back on your face. I promise. Please forgive me Geet.” Maan almost whispered while gently caressing her forehead as of taking all her pains that he gave her nd gently kissed her forehead before getting up from there nd laying down on couch. He keeps on looking at her sleeping form nd didn’t realize wen did he slept waiting for next day to come.

 

***************************************************

 

As the morning rays hit the sky Maan slowly opened his eyes as the sunrays coming through the window falls on his eyes forcing him to open them. He slowly got up while rubbing his eyes in order to get rid from his sleep nd stretched his arms wen the events of last night flashed in front of his eyes nd he instantly looked at the direction of bed only to find it empty nd panic took over him as he didn’t saw Geet in the room. Did she left him due to what he did last night, he thought as his eyes restlessly searched for her but then he heard the sound of shower from washroom nd he sighed in relief realizing that she was taking shower nd had not left him. But then he frowned thinking that how come she got up so early today. But then he thought that probably he had got up late today as he had spent better part of night in regretting on his deeds nd it was early dawn wen he finally slept probably thatsy he got up late today. But as his gaze falls on watch he realized that he got up on his usual tym den how come Geet is so early today.

 

He was contemplating on his thoughts only wen his gaze falls on the belongings of his rooms nd he just stood over dere rooted nd shocked as he wanders his gaze all around the room. The walls of the room were once again adorned with his nd Sameera’s pic including their wedding pic too while there’s not a single pic of Geet like before. All those old items which were removed from the room were once again placed at its original place in short his room was became like what it was before. There’s not a single trace of the renovation done by Dadimaa nd he don’t have to guess who did this nd as realization hits him he closed his eyes in regret realizing that its Geet who had done these changes. She had made everything like before, had removed each nd every pic of hers nd other things replacing it with Sameera’s nd his pic nd the old things. A lump formed in his throat as he realized that this is the reason Geet had got up early today. She had taken each nd every word of his in her heart nd why wouldn’t she. The way he had spat those words on her last day it was obvious for her to do such thing, he thought as he waited eagerly for her to come out from the washroom so that he could apologize to her.

 

Nd den as if god felt mercy on his condition, his wait finally ended as he saw Geet coming out from washroom door looking downwards while wiping her wet hairs. She didn’t saw Maan standing nd as a result she collided with his hard frame causing to lose her balance but before she can touch the ground she felt someone holding her from waist nd she closed her eyes recognizing the touch. It’s the only touch that she can recognize even with her close eyes as it is the touch of the person whom she loves beyond the limit of sanity. It’s the touch of her Maan. Maan pulled her towards himself making her stand on her feet while still holding her close by her waist. He saw at her closed eyes nd as always he was lost in her angelic face. Those wet hairs of hers were making her look so alluring. At that moment everything else seems to be slipped somewhere at the back of his mind; his guilt, his regret, his dilemma everything nd all what he could see nd feel is she, her aroma nd her being so close to him.

 

Geet slowly opened her eyes only to meet his dark ones which were looking intently at her nd like always she was lost in those dark obes which seems to see through her soul with them. Maan looked at her one eye to another only to find it red nd puffy due to crying whole night but what made his heart squeezed in pain is the amount of pain in them. The eyes which always had spark in them were now laced with pain nd hurt. Her eyes were mirror of her heart nd it was showing loud nd clear that how much his heart is hurt with his harsh words. He just wanted to hug her tight at that very moment to take away that pain. That painful look in her eyes has made him die thousand deaths but he was hesitant to take a step towards her not because of his dilemma but because of his regret. What if she wont like it as he knows that she had not forgiven him nd he don’t even know that will she forgive him also or not. Geet was in some kind of spell as he looked into his eyes which were speaking volumes confessing what he was feeling right now, his unspoken love for her.

 

“Love”? no it can’t be. She’s again thinking too much, she’s again seeing that thing which can’t be possible in this birth; she’s again expecting something unexpected, she thought nd her eyes welled up as this thought crossed her mind. As the events of last night came in her mind she immediately realized what she was doing nd she tried to free herself from his embrace while looking other side. This movement of hers was enough to break Maan’s trance nd he reluctantly free her from his arms. Geet immediately rushed towards the dresser avoiding any kind of confrontation with him nd Maan was pained to see her indifference but he deserves it, isn’t he, he thought as he looked at her wiping her hairs while looking down.

 

“Geet” he called out her name huskily nd Geet making her halt in her actions nd she looked at him through the mirror only to find her standing behind her at a distance.

 

“Geet I wanted to say something to you” he said after gathering much courage nd Geet fidgeted with her towel anticipating what else was left to say after last night. She was in no state to take his harsh words further.

 

“Geet, Woh I��”

 

“I know what you want to say.” Geet said while turning around interrupting him in between while Maan looked at her in confusion.

 

“Don’t worry it wont happen again. Though I still don’t know how it all happened but from next tym I’ll make sure that I should know about such changes. I promise it won’t happen again.” Geet said nd Maan felt more regret for his words but even in his regret also he didn’t missed tinge of hurt in her voice.

 

“Geet it’s not like that. Actually�..”

 

“I know that I can’t take Di’s place neither in your life nor in your heart. ya for some moment I forget the truth of our relationship, I forgot that our relationship is based on compromise, I forgot that I am a responsibility for you but now I wont do this again. I told you before also nd again saying that I’ll never take Di’s place neither in Ur heart nor in your lyf because I know I just cant no matter what. You don’t have to worry for anything from my side. From next tym you won’t be disappointed from me for anything.” Geet said nd Maan didn’t missed the tears in her eyes which were threatening to fall down anytime but before he could say anything to her she went out calling out for Nakul leaving him behind alone nd dumbfounded.

 

Maan just stood over dere speechless for some moment processing Geet’s words in his mind. Her each nd every word was like a slap to him making him regret again nd again for what he did. How would he tell her that she’s thinking all wrong, that their relationship has gone far beyond compromise; that she’s just not a responsibility for him, that she has become much more then a responsibility for him. How would he tell her that he had said those words in the fit of his own helplessness, in his own turmoil nd now he’s regretting each nd every word said by him. She didn’t let him say anything because she thought that he’ll again accuse her of something nd this shows the intensity of pain he had given her that now she’s again back to the place from where they started their relationship. But he won’t let this happen. He won’t let her drawn in her shell. He know that he had to work hard nd he’ll do everything which can bring that smile back on her face. Thinking this he immediately rushed outside to talk to her wen he found her conversing with Nakul instructing him about something. Maan had just opened his mouth only to call out to her wen she went from dere heading towards Kitchen nd maan just stood over dere looking at her retreating figure sighing at his fate.

 

*******************************************************

 

It’s been almost an hour since Geet had spoken to Maan in the morning and since then Maan haven’t saw her for once. He straightaway went to his gym after he last saw Geet talking to Nakul to take out all his helplessness nd frustration by doing intense Tai-chi. His own words were running in his mind with each nd ever kick nd punches he throws in air nd as a result his moves gets more nd more vigorous. He just can’t able to ignore Geet’s voice laced with pain, her teary eyes, that pale nd forlorn look on her face nd all these just because of him. Why? Why he didn’t thought once with a calm mind before saying all that to her. A sudden feeling of losing her gripped his heart making him restless nd scared at the same tym.  No he have to do something to bring back her normal self or else he’ll lose her for forever nd this is the last thing he wants. He don’t want to think why he’s scared to lose her because at this moment he just wanted her back to be her normal self nd their relationship like it was before.

 

After spending a good tym at his gym taking out all his frustration Maan came back to his room to take shower hoping to see Geet to be there but he was disappointed to see that she was not there. For once he thought of calling her in the pretext of something but then he shrugged off his thought thinking that she may be busy in the kitchen preparing coffee for him nd he’ll apologize to her wen she’ll come with his coffee. Keeping this thing in mind he went towards the washroom to take shower wishing what he’s thinking is true nd everything went according to what he had thought.

 

But things sometimes don’t go as per we planned nd dis is proved in the case of Maan as wen he came out from washroom he saw Nakul placing his coffee on the table but his clothes were nicely arranged on the bed. He frowned as he saw Nakul doing the task that Geet use to do but why is he doing this nd most importantly where is Geet? Why she’s not here? Was she so angry on him that now she don’t want to see him also, he thought as he saw Nakul going outside after placing his coffee.

 

“Nakul Wait.” He beckoned him before he gets out the room nd Nakul instantly turned towards him waiting for his order.

 

“Nakul why you had brought Coffee today? Where is Geet madam?” he asked sternly yet desperately waiting for him to answer

 

“Wo Sir Geet madam had some work in Annie Baby’s room so she has gone there asking me to get you your coffee.” Nakul revealed nd Maan sighing knowing why Geet did it. Going to Annie’s room is just an excuse. In real she was avoiding him in fear that he’ll again say something to her.

 

“You want anything else sir.” Nakul’s voice break his trance nd he was about to deny him wen his gaze falls on his shirt kept on the bed nd instantly an idea came into his mind

 

“ummm Nakul go nd tell your Geet madam that I am calling her nd its urgent so she come soon nd ya tell her that I want her only so she can avoid her other important task for a while.” Maan said authoratively nd Nakul nodded his head before leaving the room

 

As soon as Nakul left Maan immediately picked up his shirt nd looked at it for sometym. His mind went back to first day after their marriage wen the button of his shirt broke nd Geet had stitched it. At that tym she was so close to him nd it was den only he was able to make her feel better wen she was feeling low. Nd it seems today also only this could help him. if he wanted to apologize to Geet then its necessary for Geet to stay with him for atleast few minutes nd hear him out after that whatever punishment she’ll gave to him, he’s ready to bear that but before that he had to seek apology for his actions. Thinking this he broke 2-3 buttons of his shirt himself making sure that it didn’t looked intentionally patting himself mentally for his intelligence.

 

He had just finished completing his task wen Geet had entered inside the room. She was feeling hesitant to face him but since Nakul has said that its something urgent nd he needs her only so she quietly went towards their room having no choice with her. As soon as she entered inside the room she saw Maan wearing his half done Shirt nd looking at the buttons on his other hand. She frowns wen she noticed the buttons of his shirt broken as wen she had taken out his shirt it was all right then how come the button got broken nd that too not one but 3 but then she thought that probably she’s thinking too much. Maan saw her standing fro the corner of his eyes nd he closed his eyes nd took a deep breath before starting his drama.

 

“O god this button it had to broken now only. What would I wear now?” he said as he picked up the needle nd thread from the dresser pretending that he didn’t saw Geet.

 

“Hell here I am getting late for office nd this button is just screwing me up. I don’t even know how to sew the button.” Maan said as he struggled to sew the button looking at Geet from the corner of his eyes who was looking at her perplexed. He took a deep breath before turning towards her because he knows that now he’s going to do the toughest job

 

“Oh Geet thank god you came. Ummm Can you please fix this button I am getting late for office. There’s a important presentation lined up today.” He said pretending that he had just noticed her breaking Geet’s trance

 

Geet looked at him nd den at his half done shirt nd den buttons in his hand not sure what to do. Finally after taking a deep breath he moves near him nd Maan smiled slightly seeing the success of his idea. He knew that no matter how much she’s upset on him but she’ll never fail to take care of him. He was lost in his thoughts wen Geet came nd stood near him. She was about to take the thread nd the needle from his hand to sew the button wen his words from last nite ringed back in her ears

 

“What do you want to prove ha… that you had taken Sameera’s place? I told you that no one can take Sameera’s place in my heart. Absolutely No One!!!! Yet you tried this.”

 

“You can’t take Sameera’s place Geet. Did you hear that Geet, you can’t take her place neither in my heart nor in my life.”

 

Nd as these words rang in her mind she draws her hands back nd instantly turned back facing her back to him. Maan saw the change of expressions on her face nd den saw her drawing her hands back nd he instantly closed his eyes realizing why she did that. It’s nothing but the impact of his own words due to which she’s feeling hesitant to do anything for him. He took a deep breath before opening his eyes.nd has raised his hand only turn her around so that she can face him wen she found her stepping away nd moving towards the cupboard. He looks at her confused wen he saw her fishing something in the cupboard nd den he saw her taking out another shirt for him after checking that its all fine. Nd once she was sure that the shirt that she had taken out is all right she come nd extended it towards him.

 

“You are getting late for office nd it’ll take tym to sew 3 buttons so you wear this for now nd I’ll sew the buttons later.” She said extending the shirt towards him waiting for him to hold it while he just looked at her speechless nd confused.

 

“Maan you are getting late.” She said yet again wen she found him lost somewhere breaking his trance nd he absent mindedly took the shirt nd she turned to leave outside.

 

“Geet can’t we talk for few moments also. Is my presence suffocating you this much?” Maan said rather remorsefully nd Geet closed her eyes not able to bear his remorseful voice.

 

“Geet I just wanted to say that I am��”

 

“Breakfast is ready Maan. Get ready nd come to downstairs soon or else you’ll be late for office.” Geet said coldly after taking a deep breath interrupting him in between nd moved out from the room leaving him behind lost nd dumbfounded in the pool of his own regrets.

 

Maan just keeps on looking at her retreating figure then at the shirt in his hand which she had handed him over. He took a deep sigh nd sat on bed holding his head between his hands. It was not easy nd he know that. He had really hurt her a big tym this tym nd she wont be able to be normal with him soon. This tym he had accused her of something which was not less then a crime for her therefore her behaviour with him is obvious.  No amount of remorse can change the damage that he had done already neither it could bring back that tym when he had uttered those words. But inspite of knowing this also he was just not able to see at her cold self. The way she had shunned herself around him was something unbearable to him. Since the tym they got married it is for the first tym Geet had behaved like this with him but he can’t deny that this is also the first tym when he had hurted her like this.

 

He pushed back his hairs as he felt helpless nd frustrated on himself. He thought that this button excuse will work nd if not anything then atleast Geet will hear him out but what Geet did was something he didn’t expected. All this while living with Geet he understands her this well that what hurts her nd what hurts her not. He knows that she’s really a very sensitive girl. Small-small things use to make her cry or laugh. Therefore he knows that his one baseless accusation had not only hurted her but gave a big scar in her heart. if only he could stop himself at that tym from uttering those words, if only he could think just once before saying those hurtful words to her then this would have never happened but fact is that damage is done nd he cant do anything rather then fixing it.

 

He touched his shirt where the button is broken nd smiled slyly as he remembered how Geet had fix it on the first day after their marriage nd since that day he got so much dependent on her that when she was away for almost one month due to Arnav’s illness, He cant able to manage a single thing himself. She has become his habbit, his need or probably more then that. Her smile, her chattering, those sparking eyes, her musical voice, her innocence had become his need, his reason to live nd today each nd every thing is missing from her nd its all due to him. He can’t see her like this; he can’t see her drawing in her own shell. It pricks his heart seeing her like this around him. He felt suffocated as if someone is snatching away his breath from him. He could see everything slipping away from his hands nd he can’t do anything but just seeing it helplessly.

 

“No Geet, I wont let you draw in your shell. I won’t let you distant from me like this. I know I did a big mistake nd I’ll bear any punishment for it but not your silence Geet. Give me any punishment but don’t distance yourself from me like this. I can’t bear it. I promise Geet that I’ll do everything to fix this damage. I promise that I’ll bring you back to yourself once again. There will be no guilt, no turmoil between us Geet. I don’t know that whether I had fallen in Love with you or not nd I don’t want to even think at that direction because I had already hurted you due this dilemma of mine but I wont hurt you more now due to this dilemma of my heart. I’ll go to any extent Geet to bring that smile back on your face, to bring that spark back on your face nd I promise that I’ll bring back our relationship back to normal for you just for you.” He said determiningly deciding that he’ll do everything that he can do to stop Geet being indifferent nd stood up to get ready for his office taking the shirt that Geet gave him.

 

************************************************

 

Geet came running down to the deserted corner of the corridor hiding away her tears which were threatening to fall down in front of Maan. She leaned her back to one of the wall of the corridor nd sobbed bitterly. Only she knows how hard it was for her to control herself to not break down in front of him. And when he said those remorseful words she wished that Death could consume her then and there before she had to hear his voice laced with remorse. Yes she’s hurted, yes she’s heart broken yet he can’t see him in guilt no matter if it was his fault only.

 

Only she knows that how difficult it was for her to behave so cold around him. She herself was not happy the way she was behaving with him but she’s helpless in front of her heart. She knows that since their Marriage Maan is dependent for each nd every thing on her nd today when she avoided sewing his buttons back on his shirt she knows that probably he would have feel hurt due to this. But what can she do she was too much broken to do everything like before. It was not that she’s angry on him or something of that sort. No she’s not angry on him, she can never be angry on him for anything. Even if he kills her also then also she would die happily without even asking what was her fault. But it was that dry pain in her heart which was holding her back from doing anything for him. No matter how hard she tried but she couldn’t forget the words he had said to her last nite. She was totally broken nd scarred due to his harsh words nd it’s not easy for her to be like before.

 

As those harsh words of his from last night came back to her mind she felt herself like a Despo who was trying to embed herself in his life forcefully while he don’t want her in his life. Nd even if she would have continued to stitch on to his button also then she was sure that she would be surely break down in front of him as she was never able to hide her emotions from him for he could see through her soul, atleast this is what she thinks to be. But after last night she don’t know that how far her assumptions are correct. Probably he was hurt or probably she had made him feel more guilty or probably he can be mad on her also for ignoring him like this but she can’t help it. Her heart is broken nd she don’t want it to be shattered more into pieces.

 

“I am sorry Maan. Probably I am hurting you with my behaviour but Maan I am just saving my heart which had immense Love for you. I am just saving that Love which I had for you so that it won’t turn numb due to those harsh words of yours that are spreading like venom in my heart. Yes I am distancing myself from you because I am in no state to bear any more accusations of yours. Because if you said anything else which is more hurtful then this then I wont be able to bear it Maan. I’ll die before I listen to anymore accusations of yours. I hope that you’ll forgive me nd try to understand me just like always.” She said between her sobs trying to seek some relief for her aching heart which was in immense pain since last night with that one accusation of Maan that had teared her apart.

 

*********************************************************

 

Maan came downstairs after a while for breakfast only to find whole family at the dining table for breakfast waiting for him but his eyes were only searching for Geet. He just wanted to see her, to talk to her, to be with her always nd that’s wen he saw her coming out from kitchen with a bowl of Pasta in her hands nd his heart danced in joy as he realized that she had prepared Pasta for him. Inspite of happening so much between them she didn’t fail to cook for him because she knows that he’s habitual of the food cook by her. he smiled as he remembered how he use to make fuss nd find fault in each nd every dish made by Nakul when Geet had gone to her parent’s home nd when Geet came to know about it then she had always keep this thing in mind that his breakfast, lunches nd dinners were made by her only. Just like today when she had made pasta for him inspite of being angry on him.

 

He slowly descended the stairs keeping his eyes fixed on Geet who was helping Nakul in arranging the table smiling occasionally on Vicky or Annie’s silly jokes. But even from a distance also he could found her smile not reaching her eyes nd he knows that she was smiling just for the sake of their family. Geet felt each nd every fiber of her Body burning as she felt his piercing gaze on her. She don’t have to raise her head nd look to confirm it as she knows that only one person is capable enough to make her feel this way nd with his look only she can find each nd every cell of her body burning in desire. She clutched her duppatta tight to not to get weak as Maan took calculative steps towards her without removing his gaze for once. And as she raises her head to look at him she found him looking back at her deeply nd intently. Once again she saw the reflection of those feelings in his eyes which were there in her heart for him nd she found herself losing in those dark orbs of his which seems to penetrate through her body to reach her soul.

 

Maan looked at her hazels only to find it red nd puffy as if she had just cried nd he knows that he’s not wrong. She did have cried nd he knows the reason too. Like him she was also not happy to behave so cold with him nd probably thatsy she had shed those tears somewhere at the corner as she had thought that she had hurted him. Yes he was hurted not because of the cold shoulder she’s giving to him because he knows that he deserves it but because she’s crying for him as she’s feeling that he’s hurted due to her. At that moment he just wanted to take her away from here to somewhere where there is just him nd her nd where he could keep her in his arms forever telling her that he can never be hurted because of her, that an angel like her can only fill his life with happiness but not once she can hurt him, that he was a big tym jerk at that tym when he had said that she had hurted him when in real it was him who had hurted her that too a big tym. They keep on looking at each other’s eyes talking, complaining, apologizing, confessing their feeling through their eyes oblivious of the world around them. Maan had just extended his hand only to cradle her face to tell her that he’s really sorry for what he did when he felt a sudden push by Vicky who is running away while Annie was chasing him from behind, breaking his trance.

 

Maan looked around himself only to find him still standing near the stairs while Geet was sitting on the chair looking at him perplexed. He looked at his raised hand in the air nd then back at Geet nd immediately brings it down looking other side. That means he was again imagining things, he thought as he looked at Geet who had immediately lowered down her gaze but in that millisecond also wen their eyes met Maan realize that he was not wrong either in thinking that Geet had cried for him. Probably thatsy she had immediately lowered her gaze because she knows that he could easily read her eyes. God knows why he couldn’t read it at that tym. If he did then they wouldn’t be at the place where they are now, he thought looking ahead at Geet who was just looking at her plate as if it’s the most fantasizing thing in this world.

 

“Maan what are doing over there? Don’t you want to have your breakfast?” Dadimaa’s voice broke his trance nd he immediately made his way towards his chair after composing himself. Dadimaa though was angry on him for his behaviour but she didn’t failed to see the true feeling of remorse in his eyes when he was looking at Geet nd she just prayed that Maan fixes everything before everything falls apart.

 

As Maan took his seat Geet immediately got up from her chair to serve everyone. Maan keeps on looking at her as she was serving him his pasta. Not once did she raise his head to look at him while he badly wanted her to look at him. He so much wanted to drown in those hazels of her telling her that he’ll not hurt her further, that he’ll make everything normal between them but he cant do anything at that tym instead of just looking at her as she served him nd took her seat back playing with her food.

 

“Wow! Today’s breakfast is really nice. Isn’t it?” Maan said smiling after composing himself making everyone surprised.

 

“But Bhai you haven’t tasted it yet.” Vicky asked confused not understanding his own brother’s behaviour.

 

“Ya but I can still say that food is awesome. It smells so nice so I am sure it will be tasty too.” He said while eyeing at Geet to get any kind of response from her if not anything then any expression which could tell him that she feel appreciated but got nothing except her blank face.

 

“Hhmmm it really tastes so nice.” He said as he relished the first spoon of Pasta while everyone on table looked at him like he’s an alien. But oblivious to all this Maan’s eyes was just fixed on Geet who was looking downwards at her plate

 

“It is so tasty that I just wanted to kiss the hands of the person who had prepared it.” Maan said affectionally looking at Geet adoringly to expect a slight blush atleast as he clearly remembered how Geet had blushed when Vicky had asked him to kiss her hands because she had made awesome food the day after their marriage. Today also he was expecting the same blush but nothing of such happened infact Vicky who was looking at him unblinkingly till now broke into laughter soon joined by giggling sound of others making Maan to avert his gaze from Geet nd look at him.

 

“For what you are laughing Vicky? I haven’t crackled a joke over here.” Maan said in a stern voice rather confusingly as he found the behaviour of younger brother weird.

 

“I am sorry Maan Bhai. I don’t want to laugh but I just couldn’t stop myself.” Vicky said between the fit of laughter while trying his best to control his laugh but it was really not in his hand to control his laugh. Even Dadimaa was trying to suppress the laugh which was desperate to escape from her throat by just smirking but Geet’s expression still didn’t changed as she just sit over there quietly looking at her family members.

 

“Vicky!!!” Maan said in a stern voice that make Vicky instantly shuts his mouth not wanting to bear the wrath of his elder brother

 

“Sorry Bhai. But actually the thing is that I don’t have any problem if you kiss the person who had prepared today’s breakfast. I mean section 377 is legalized now in India nd everyone has their own choice but I was just thinking that Nakul wont have any problem in this I mean his consent is equally important na. Don’t know whether he’s ready for it or not.” Vicky said as a matter of fact confusing Maan even further while others just rolled their eyes seeing his logic.

 

“And how Nakul is exactly related to whole conversation?” He asked confusingly yet sternly not getting head nd tale of anything.

 

“Wo kya hai Na Bhai that today whole breakfast is prepared by Nakul only including your Pasta. Nd since it was so nice as you put it that you wanted to kiss the hands of the person who cooked it so I was just wondering whether Nakul wants it or not. Should I just ask him?” Vicky said though non chalantly but it had shattered all Maan’s hopes. He just looked at Geet who was still looking at her plate.

 

It was difficult for him to believe that Geet had not prepared breakfast for him. It may not be a big deal for others but for him it’s really a very big thing especially at this stage where they are now. had he really hurted her this much that now she’s not doing the chores that she usually use to do for him, he thought as he replayed everything since morning nd realized that Geet had not done a single task by herself that she use to do for him since their marriage except for arranging their clothes. His morning coffee was brought by Nakul; she had given him new shirt instead of stitching his buttons nd now this whole breakfast was not prepared by her but Nakul including his own pasta. He looked at Geet painfully as he felt his remorse eating him from within. If till now he had any doubt then it was all confirmed that he had not only hurted Geet but also shattered her completely otherwise no matter what come Geet could never stop herself from doing all those things for him that she use to do since their marriage.

 

“I know that I can’t take Di’s place neither in your life nor in your heart. Ya for some moment I forget the truth of our relationship, I forgot that our relationship is based on compromise; I forgot that I am a responsibility for you but now I won’t do this again”

 

Her words from morning replayed back in his mind nd he just shivered as he realized that Geet is drawing in her shell because she thinks that she’s a responsibility for him nd their relationship is compromise. Because she thinks that she’s trying to embed in his lyf forcefully nd he just closed his eyes in regret as realization dawn upon him. His words had more impact on her heart then what he imagined. How would he tell her that whatever she’s thinking is all wrong, that she’s not trying to involve in his life forcefully, that he wants her in his lyf to care for him, to do all the small nd big tasks for him, to take away all his frustration nd irritation on her while she sooths them away with a smile on her face like always. How would he tell her that she had full right to take care of him, to boss over him wenever he ignore his health in amidst of work, to make him smile with her innocent talks, to do all those small nd big things for him that she use to do till now. How would he tell her that he’s regretting each nd every second the tym when he had hurted her with her words. He knows that he had committed a big mistake but he really don’t know how he’s going to rectify it. For the first tym Maan Singh Khurana is clueless to what to do to rectify his mistake. Sighing he just got up from his chair nd started heading outside. He didn’t even paid attention that he had once again became the subject of laugh in front of his family nd now they’ll tease him to no ends for he was too lost in his own pool of regrets.

 

“Maan where are you going?” Dadimaa said as she noticed him going outside making everyone to look at him giving a pause to their laughing session.

 

“I am going to office Dadimaa” Maan said without turning as he was not in state to face anyone

 

“But Bro your breakfast.” Dev asked promptly as he could clearly see that Maan had not even taken a second spoon of his Pasta.

 

“I don’t feel like having Dev moreover I am getting late for Presentation so I need to go to office early. You also finish your breakfast soon nd come to office.” Maan said before making his way outside towards his car leaving everyone behind baffled.

 

Geet looked at his retreating form as he made his way outside. She felt bad as he left his breakfast nd went to office. Though it won’t be the first tym wen he’s going to office like this without having breakfast but this is for the first tym when he’s leaving his breakfast because Nakul had prepared it. Though he haven’t voiced it out but she could hear his unsaid words nd she had clearly seen his disappointment when Vicky said that Nakul had prepared Pasta for him. she knows it very well that he likes the food prepared by her but after last night she don’t even know that whether she had this much right to do anything for him or not. What if he accuses her of trying to intrude in his life unnecessarily? Don’t know why but since the incident of last night she’s feeling so insecure nd negative. She haven’t felt like this even then when she don’t have any feelings for him or during those initial days of their marriage but his words from last night had made her so insecure nd negative about everything. She knows that in order to save her heart being crushed more she’s probably hurting him with her cold self but she’s helpless in front of his heart which now feared for each nd every thing.

 

Vidyut saw the change of expressions on both Maan’s nd Geet’s face since the tym Maan had came to the breakfast table and to say that he was not feeling relieved with the way their relationship is going on would be an utter lie as he was more then happy. This is what he wished for nd now it seems that everything is going automatically according to his wish. Though Geet had defended Maan in front of him last nite but he didn’t missed Geet’s indifference around Maan since morning indicating that their relationship had definitely got a strain after last night incidence. He could clearly see that last night incidence had somewhere created a crack in their relationship nd now he just need to work to turn that crack into a gap nd then everything will fall in the right place nd Geet will be his forever. But what he failed to see the love in both Maan’s nd Geet’s eyes for each other which may now seem misted due to circumstances but had definitely not vanished for it was too strong to fade with this small incidence.

 

***************************************************

 

Maan paced in his cabin restlessly unable to concentrate on any work. Geet’s indifference was just not letting him rest in peace. He was not even able to concentrate on presentation also nd at last he left the presentation in mid asking Dev to handle the rest of the presentation. Everyone at the conference hall was surprised with Maan’s behaviour as he never left his presentation in mid but Maan was too lost in his own thoughts to pay attention what others are thinking for his mind was just wandering over Geet’s behaviour. He knows that with his behaviour of last night he had created a sense of insecurity in her heart which was not there before not even during the initial days of their marriage. He had really hurted her a lot nd for that whatever punishment he get from her would be less but yet he didn’t want Geet to be so cold around him.

 

He wanted her to shout, to yell, to be angry on him asking why he did that nd if not anything then atleast tell him that he had really hurted her nd thatsy she don’t want to talk to him. But nothing of this sort is happening instead Geet is giving cold shoulder to him. She’s not even taking out her anger, her hurt also on him for which she had full right nd is been bottling up everything inside her only which is unbearable to him. He just can’t see her so lifeless. He had clearly seen it during the breakfast that she was not at all in her cheerful mood like always nd if she smiles also then her smile didn’t reached her eyes. he so much wanted to talk to her nd take her away all her insecurities nd fear but don’t know how to do it nd on top of that Geet is not even giving him any chance to say or do anything.

 

This is for the first tym he’s been stuck up in such kind of situation. He had never faced any situation like this with Sameera. Infact Sameera had never been angry on him for which he had to think like this to pacify her but on the second thoughts he had never hurted Sameera like he had hurted Geet also due to which Sameera had to be cold around him. But now the damage is done nd he had to do something fast before everything goes worse but the question is how? It’s funny that even after being in Love before he don’t know how to manofy his partner. “Love” the word again made his heart do summersault as he reminded of Geet but then he just shrugged it off for now as currently he wanted his whole attention in thinking of the way to pacify Geet nd apologize to her for his rude behavior. He was never good in for giving flowers or teddies or any kind of those Lovey-dovey stuffs. It was all Dev’s nd Vicky’s department who spend bucks like water for buying gift for NT nd Savera but when it comes to him then he just don’t believe in all this nd anyways with Sameera he had never faced any situation of such kind. But things is different with Geet nd therefore he too had to approach different way but again the question is how nd what? He was lost in his thought only when a loud knock on his cabin door break his trance nd he immediately sat on his chair in order to compose himself because last thing he wants is anyone witnessing the storm going in his heart.

 

“Come in” he said after a while composing himself only to find Nakul entering inside

 

“What’s it Nakul?” Maan asked as he noticed Nakul standing in front of him with a bag in his hand.

 

“Sir your lunch” Nakul replied as he placed Lunch bag on the table across the room while Maan looked at him confusingly. When did he had asked for Lunch that Nakul had brought, he thought as he looked at the Tiffin nd then at Nakul.

 

“Nakul I haven’t called home for lunch neither did I ask for it then why on earth had you brought it?” Maan asked in a stern voice making Nakul scared.

 

“Wo Sir� Dadimaa had sent this. She said that you didn’t had anything in morning also nd it’s not good for your health so she had send this lunch nd asked me to tell you that you had to have this lunch only nd not something from canteen or outside.” Nakul said wit his head dipped down nd Maan knotted his brows in confusion.

 

It’s strange before this Dadimaa had never done anything of such sort neither did he get such instructions from her because she knows that he hardly eats from canteen. Nd if he needs to have his Lunch also in office then he himself would call up home to ask her to send his lunch in office. It’s only Geet who use to bring his lunch in office wenever he skips his breakfast nd then gives a good lecture to tell him the difference between home-made food nd the food made in restaurants nd all. Nd as this thought crossed his mind his eyes widens as realization dawn upon him. He immediately gets up from his chair nd quickly dashed outside his cabin nd restlessly looked around in search of Geet. His heart was continuously saying that Geet is somewhere near, he could feel her presence, her aroma but his mind just denies it saying that it’s just the fragment of his imagination. Maan’s eyes for restlessly searching for just one glimpse of Geet so that it could give some relief to his restless heart but he was disappointed to find her no where. He had even checked the corridors also but she was not anywhere. Dejected he came back to his cabin with heavy heart as he realized that it was just his thought nd nothing else only to find Nakul looking at him confusingly.

 

“Nakul are you sure that Dadimaa only had sent this lunch.” Maan asked looking at him sternly with his piercing gaze while Nakul just gulped his saliva

 

“Yes sir. She only had asked me to bring your lunch. I am saying true.” Nakul replied in trembled voice nd Maan just sighed deeply thinking that probably he’s saying true nd it was him who is just thinking too much.

 

“Sir Lunch” Nakul’s voice broke his trance nd he just asked him to leave after telling him that he’ll have it later on. Nakul really scares of Maan’s wrath therefore he didn’t protest much nd just leaves from there but not before telling him once again what Dadimaa had told him.

 

As soon as Nakul goes over there Maan took a deep sigh as this Lunch fiasco has brought back so many memories of his nd Geet that has been created here in this cabin only. a small smile crept on his face as he remembered how Geet had bossed over him that day when he said that he’ll have the food later. She was truly looking Mrs. Geet Maan Singh Khurana that day who was showing who is having upper hand nd then later that close moment of theirs near the washroom door where they were so lost in each other’s eyes unknown to both of them. He had even lost the number of counts of their memorable moments that has been created in his cabin during lunch with Geet but today everything is changed nd all he’s having with him is loneliness nd emptiness, he thought as he closed his eyes nd sighed before looking at the lunch send by Dadimaa.

 

Maan was in no mood to have lunch not until he found any way to bring Geet back to herself but just for Dadimaa’s sake he decided to just have few bites. He had already spoiled his relationship with Geet due to his stubbornness nd his insensitivity nd now he don’t want to disappoint his Dadimaa with his rude behaviour. Therefore half heartedly he opens the lid of the Tiffin only to be greeted by a familiar aroma. He frowned nd quickly see through the food only to find Palak Paneer, Chapati nd rice along with Russian Salad in it, all his favourite

 

“Geet” he muttered as he took the first bite nd a smile crept on his face realizing that who had prepared it.

 

His heart danced in joy as he realize that she had not only prepared his lunch but also send it through Nakul. Nd now as he replayed everything then he realizes that why Nakul was talking to him with his head dipped low nd why did he felt her presence at the office that tym nd then those instructions that Nakul said that Dadimaa had given, it was actually given by Geet . His heart mocked at his brain as if saying that he could never fail to feel the presence of the person who is so close to him. Yes, sub consciously he had accepted Geet as the closest person near his heart without even realizing it. A sense of contentment washed over his heart as he realized that no matter how much Geet is angry on him or giving cold shoulder to him yet she won’t stop herself from caring for him. And as the realization hits him he started having his lunch from all his heart relishing each nd every bite of it not because he was feeling hungry but because it has been prepared by Geet unknown of the fact that someone is watching him from outside with a sweet smile on her face nd tears in her eyes.

 

It was Geet who was watching Maan through the blinds who was busy in relishing the lunch made by his wife. Since the tym Maan had left for office without having breakfast Geet’s heart was not at peace. No matter how much hurt she was due to him yet she can’t see him neglecting his health like this. She knows it very well that Maan won’t have his lunch in the office too not just because he would be too busy in his work to think of lunch but also because he would be feeling hurt due to her indifference. But even after knowing all this also she was not sure whether she should prepare lunch for him or not. A part of her wanted to shrug off all her thoughts nd just do everything for him like she use to do before but another part of her was so much clouded with insecurities nd fear for what if he don’t like it or think that she’s intruding his space, was not letting her do what she wants. In her dilemma to choose between right nd right she found herself tearing apart. But then finally she decided to do what she thinks is right.

 

She prepared each nd every favourite dish of Maan nd packed it in a Tiffin nd asked Nakul to take it in office but not to tell him that she had send it. she further told that no matter how much Maan asks him who had send this, he wont change his answer; also no matter how much Maan denies to have lunch or say that he’ll have something from outside, he wont budge at all nd tell him that Dadimaa had strictly asked Maan to have this lunch only. Nd once Nakul left from home Geet too leave for office behind him just to see Maan having his lunch. No mater how much she is hurted due to him but she’s still helpless in front of her heart who sometimes wants to run away from him nd sometimes just wanted to look at him forever. When Maan came outside in search of her then she quickly hide herself on the near by pillar nd her heart pierced seeing him searching for her so restlessly nd she cant go near him nd enjoy their togetherness just like they use to do before wenever she use to bring Lunch for him. But last night incidence had changed everything nd she found herself so close yet so far from him. so now here she’s is watching her husband through blinds relishing the food made by her like she use to watch him before nd her heart feel contended seeing the sense of recognition in his eyes. She would be a big tym fool if she’ll think that Maan won’t recognize that the food is prepared by her because she knows that the taste of her food was embedded not only in his tongue but in his heart but still she didn’t feel regretted for her decision of preparing food for him because when it comes to him nd his health then she had never paid any heed on anything neither on her wounded heart nor on her shattered soul. She keeps on looking at him until he finishes his lunch nd headed for washroom to wash his hands.

 

“I Love you Maan nd I’ll always Love you no matter what.” She whispered wiping away that lone tear that just escaped her eye nd left from there towards home before Maan could spot her here in his office.

 

Didn’t stay at Disco till late night. Checked

 

Didn’t bunked the classes. Checked.

 

Didn’t smoked or got Drunk. Checked

 

Didn’t messed up with some rowdy guy. Checked

 

Didn’t played prank on the professors. Checked

 

“Then Why the hell did Maan Bhai had called me so urgently in his office to talk something serious?” Vicky thought out aloud as he checked each nd every possibility for Maan calling him office so urgently making Maan nd other clients to look at him amused.

 

Vicky looked at the clients nd then at the angry glare of his brother nd he instantly realized that he voiced out his thoughts aloud. He smiled nervously at them muttering a quick apology nd his face behind a business magazine pretending to be reading it with great concentration but it was really so. Since Past 20 mins he has been looking at the same page but hardly read its contents for his mind was busy in contemplating each nd every possibilities of Maan calling him so urgently. He had never called him like this to discuss anything that too in office. And If he wanted to talk something also to him then he would have talk to him alone at home in his study but today calling him here in the office was something strange nd Vicky didn’t missed the seriousness in his voice also when he had called him. he was sure that this tym it’s something big.

 

“Did he wanted to scold me for making his fun in the breakfast table in the morning?” Vicky thought as he gulped down his saliva expecting something worse from his brother.

 

He cursed his big mouth umpteenth tym for going too far in his teasing that he had actually called him “Gay” though not directly neither did he meant to say that. But may be it made Maan angry nd he wanted to lash out his anger on him now, he thought as he wiped away the sweat beads that formed on his forehead imagining the Devil Brother avatar of his elder brother. Strangely he could visualize himself burning in the fire of hell pleading him to leave while Maan was standing near him with the horns of Devil on his head laughing nd punishing him more nd more.

 

“Nahi!!!!!” He cried out loud as he got up from the couch feeling terrified of his own thought.

 

“Vicky! Vicky!!!” Maan’s voice broke his trance as he was continuously shrugging his shoulders nd Vicky instantly looked up to see him only to find that clients has already gone nd now he was alone with Maan in his cabin

 

“Bhai, Bhai I am really Sorry please forgive me.” he said out of blue feeling scared as his day dream flash in front of his eyes nd Maan knotted his brows in confusion seeing the weirs behaviour of his younger brother.

 

“Bhai, Please I swear I won’t make fun of you ever. I promise that I’ll think twice before speaking now but please forgive me.” Vicky literally pleaded making Maan more confused at his behaviour

 

“Vicky…” Maan tried to say something but Vicky was too busy in his own ranting to pat attention what Maan is saying

 

“And Bhai you nd Gay? Ofcourse not, I was a big tym fool to say anything without thinking. You know I am all tym stupid nd idiot, just speak without thinking.” Vicky said smiling nervously more to convince himself rather then Maan nd Maan just rolled over his eyes seeing his hyper brother who was getting scared for no reason. ofcourse he was not angry for what happened in breakfast table infact it was the last thing in his mind right now.

 

“Vicky Listen to me first” Maan who was on the verge of losing his patience tried to say yet again but all in vain

 

“Bhai if you want na then you can stop my Pocket money or you can make me starve for 2 whole days or anything. I won’t complaint but Bhai Please Forgive me. You see if I’ll burn into ashes then what will happen to Savera. You know how much she loves me. She’ll get widow even before marriage nd you know she don’t even like white colour. Please Bhai I am sorry. I am…”

 

“Enough!!!!!! Just Shut up your mouth or else I’ll definitely do whatever you had seen in your day-dream.” Maan roared out loud in anger halting Vicky’s ranting in between nd He instantly shuts his mouth seeing the red blood shot eyes of his brother.

 

“Better. Now listen to me without any interruption got it.” Maan said sternly nd Vicky nodded his head like an obedient client.

 

“First of all I haven’t call you over here to lash out my anger on you for whatever happened in the morning at the breakfast table so don’t be scared for anything nd secondly I had called you over here because I need to talk to you about something else. So now if all your nonsense talks are over then can we talk for what I had called you here for?” Maan said in a stern tone nd Vicky looked at him unblinkingly while nodding his head gulping his Saliva nd Maan just smirked seeing the effect of his anger on his younger brother.

 

**************************************************

 

“What? Out of all the discussions you wanted to discuss how I pacify Savera when she’s angry on me?” Vicky asked unbelievingly as he looked at Maan as if he was an alien.

 

“Ya. Why? Is there any problem in that?” Maan asked as he looked at Vicky while narrowing his brows.

 

“Ya I mean no I mean I don’t know. Bhai what’s wrong with you? You had never asked anything of this sort to me before?” Vicky asked as he looked at Maan puzzled to which Maan just looked other side knowing very well that Vicky is not wrong either. His reaction is obvious

 

“Wait! Wait! Wait! I guess I know why you are asking this. Geet Bhabhi is angry on you right?” Vicky said as realization hits him nd Maan just looked everywhere but him being caught by him.

 

“Yes this is only the reason. Now I understand why you were saying all those cheesy lines at the breakfast table. It was all to manofy Geet Bhabhi Na.” Vicky asked as he looked at Maan suspiciously to which Maan just nodded in yes.

 

“O God Bhai you should have asked me directly for the help Na. I mean you don’t need to beat around the bush to know how to manofy these girls. I mean Love Guru is sitting in front of you nd you are talking in riddles” Vicky said non chalantly as he leaned back on chair comfortably while Maan just shaked his head in disbelief.

 

“Now if your boasting about yourself is over then can we discuss for what we are here?” Maan said irritatingly nd Vicky instantly stopped grinning knowing very well about the temper of his elder brother.

 

“Ya ofcourse. See Bhai when Savy use to angry on me then it’s so easy to manofy her I mean I just sends her some gifts nd flowers nd chocolates nd Bang she melts instantly.” Vicky said as a matter of fact making Maan thoughtful.

 

Flowers nd he? It was not his cup of tea. He had never done anything of that sort what Vicky is saying. Not even with Sameera. Ya he use to express his Love to her but not like a typical Lover. But then things are different with Geet so he needs to approach different way. He knows that she had always fantasized her partner like a typical filmy hero. So does that mean he too had to behave like that only, he thought as he tried to prepare himself mentally for doing the things that he had never ever done.

 

“But it’s the case when me nd Savera had just a small fight. You see that normal Girl friend Boy friend types. But things get complicated When she’s hell angry on me nd was adamant to not even see my face then forget about talking to me.” Vicky’s voice broke his trance nd Maan frowned as he registers Vicky’s words nd realized that currently his condition is also the same as Vicky mentioned. Geet is avoiding even looking at him then forget about talking.

 

“Then what do you do in that case?” Maan asked as he looked at Vicky curiously.

 

“Well there are many things that I use to do when such type of situation arises but let’s not talk about it for now. Let’s think what we can do in your situation.” Vicky said as he went in deep thoughts nd Maan just looked at him in disbelief.

 

“Got it! Bhai, Bhabhi is not even talking to you right? So first we had to do something that she atleast take out her anger on you in any way.” Vicky said excitedly nd Maan looked at him confused.

 

“How about if you irritate her. I mean do something which she don’t like about you nd can make her irritated. See to take out her irritation she’ll definitely talk to you as she has to take out her anger in anyway nd when she was busy in taking out her anger then just hold her hand in yours look deep into her eyes nd say what all is there in your heart nd Bang! She’ll definitely melt.” Vicky said casually nd Maan looked at him as of he had grown two heads.

 

“Irritate her nd then say to her what I wanted to say? What rubbish Vicky? This will make her more angry.” Maan said with a frustrated sigh nd Vicky just rolled over his eyes.

 

“Bhai! Why you always so pessimistic. Trust me it’ll work. I am telling you from my personal experience. You only think that Geet Bhabhi is bottling up her anger inside her nd once she’ll take out her frustration on you then along with that her anger also will come out nd then you know what you have to do.” Vicky said as he winked at Maan giving him a meaningful look to which Maan just looked other side. No doubt what Vicky is saying is convincing but again things are different in his nd Geet’s relationship. But then what’s the harm in approaching the way Vicky is suggesting, he thought as he tried to register Vicky’s words.

 

“What are you thinking Bhai? Don’t think this much. Arey Vicky, the Love guru is giving you an advice so just follow it blindly.” Vicky said while raising his collar grinning widely nd Maan just shaked his head

 

“You think it’ll work?” Maan asked as he was still uncertain about what Vicky is saying.

 

“Ofcourse it’ll. Nd why are you worrying I am there with you Na.”

 

“But how will I irritate her? I mean she never gets irritated on anything of mine.” Maan asked confusingly.

 

“C’mon Bhai that’s not possible. I mean I know you are perfect nd have nothing in you which can irritate others but Bhai no matter how much perfect we guys are these girls always find this or that fault in us nd then crib like anything. Ab look at me only. See how much perfect I am yet Savera always find this nd that fault in me.” Vicky said sighing sadly nd Maan just arched his brows.

 

“Ya I know.” Maan said sarcastically which Vicky couldn’t understand

 

“See even you know that. Anyways like me there must be something in you also which Bhabhi don’t like. Just think any of your habbit that Bhabhi don’t like.” Vicky asked making Maan thoughtful.

 

“Your dressing sense?”

 

“No. infact she herself choose my clothes” Maan said ignoring the mischievous smirk on Vicky’s face

 

“Ok any cuisine which is your fav nd Bhabhi doesn’t like.”

 

“No. infact she use to try my favorite cuisine nd it instantly becomes her favorite” Maan aid as his mind drifted back to the tym when Geet had ate Chinese with him though She hated Chinese at that tym nd haven’t even touched it till then. But with him she really enjoyed eating it.

 

“You Anger?” Vicky asked yet again as he sighed heavily

 

“Usi ki wajah se to sab Kuch hua hai.” Maan murmured under his breath as he realized that the whole issue is due to his anger only.

 

[It’s all because of that only]

 

“What?” Vicky’s voice broke his trance nd he found him looking at him confused to which Maan just nodded in no yet again

 

“Bhai! You are answering everything in no then how the hell is you are going to irritate Bhabhi. Think deeply there must be something.” Vicky said nd Mana went thoughtful nd then his eyes instantly widens as he remembered that which thing of his irritates Geet the most.

 

“Got it!!!!” Maan’s voice filled with enthusiasm broke Vicky’s trance who was in some deep thoughts by now nd he looked at him confused.

 

Really? What it is?” he asked nd Maan told him which thing of his Geet doesn’t like nd irritates her most nd Vicky grinned widely.

 

“BINGO!!! It’ll definitely work nd if its not then I had other plans too. So let’s start our ‘mission manofying Bhabhi’.” Vicky beamed in happiness to which Maan just smiled. He had to pacify Geet anyhow nd for that he is ready to do the things also that he never done before, he thought as he thought of the plan that he had to execute now.

 

***************************************************

 

Later that day Maan reached home late at night but this tym not purposefully. He badly wanted to reach home early today but the meetings lined up one after another was just not letting him rest in peace. Only he knows how he was waiting for these meetings to end fast so that he could go to home early nd talk to Geet but nothing of that sort happened nd finally he got free at 9.30 of night after his dinner meeting. He knows that Geet is in also in the same condition as he’s in but the fear nd insecurities lurking in her heart due to him was making her draw in her own shell. But now Maan was determined that he’ll not leave any stone unturned to remove that fear from her heart especially after he witnessed her care for him when she had sent him lunch even after what all happened between them.

 

It was as if her small gesture has added new zeal to his determination strengthening it. That’s the reason he had called Vicky out of every people because he knows that only he can help in this matter for Dev never runs after NT continuously to pacify her nd Annie nd Dadimaa was still angry from him for what he did to Geet. Therefore only Vicky is left who can help him nd after his conversation with Vicky he was sure that Geet will definitely be normal soon. He realized that Vicky was right Geet had to take out all her anger in any form be it her frustration only nd once she’ll take out all her bottled up emotions then he’ll apologize to her nd tell her how empty he’s feeling with her cold behaviour towards him, he thought as he made his way towards his room feeling all tired nd exhausted.

 

Since it was late so everyone was retired to their room but he knows that Geet must be still waiting for him nd have been dozed off in the couch itself. But he was proved wrong when he stepped inside the room nd saw that Geet was in the deep slumber on the bed. Maan felt a lump in his throat seeing all his expectations crashing down like this bit he also knows that he deserves this. why would she wait for him when he himself had accused her for taking Sameera’s place with her acts, he thought as he took a deep sigh realizing how big Damage he had caused to their Relationship. He went near her nd keeps on looking at her angelic face which was looking so pale nd once again he saw dry tear marks on her face stating that she had slept while crying.

 

“Why is she wasting her precious pearls for the worthless person like me?” He thought as he looked at Geet painfully for a while nd then went to Washroom to take shower to calm down his restless heart.

 

After a while when he came out from washroom he saw Geet sleeping cuddled up like a baby while the comforter was lyieng away somewhere on the bed. Automatically a smile crept up on Maan’s face as he saw Geet’s sleeping form. She’s really not less then a child, she always was like this. so innocent nd so naive like a child away from any hypocracy. It was just due to this marriage she had transformed herself so much so that she could match up with him yet the innocence was always there in her heart. But his harsh words has just teared her apart nd Maan just closed his eyes in pain as this thought crossed his mind. He took a deep breath before opening his eyes nd moved towards her direction with slow steps.

 

It was then when he was putting comforter on her he noticed the bruised marks on his arm nd it instantly alarmed him. Maan felt a pang in his heart as realization finally dawn upon him that these marks are due to his harsh hold on her soft flesh. He remember how harshly he had griped Geet’s arms digging his nails on her soft flesh nd how she had pleaded to him telling him that he was hurting her but at that he was too blind in his own turmoil. A lone tear escaped from his eyes as he realized the intensity of his actions. Now he understands why Geet was wearing full sleeves suit since morning when she was not much comfortable wearing such clothes. It was just because no one in the family notice how brutally he had behaved with her.

 

“Why you care so much for me Geet? Why you always think about me so much? I had hurted you so much yet all you think is about my happiness, my good image in front of family. I am truly not worth for an angel like you Geet. But I promise that I’ll fix everything just to bring that smile back on your face.” Maan whispered softly as he kneeled down in front of her so that he could see her face while caressing her forehead gently all the while looking at her face.

 

This is not for the first tym when she had saved his image in front of the family. She had done it before also when he forgot to pick her up from her home at the tym of her Pagphere nd when once he was not able to take her to her friend’s wedding because he was stuck up in some meeting nd she just made excuse to Dadimaa that she was not feeling well thatsy she asked him to attend the meeting nd during the tym when he had left for London she made Dadimaa believe that she talked to him every night when the reality was just opposite. He had even lost the number of counts when she had lied for him so that he won’t face the questioning nd accusing gaze of his family. He still can’t understand how anyone can be so selfless that she never sees anything beyond her loved ones. But that’s the way his naive nd innocent wife is. She had never ever thought about herself nd had just given happiness nd love to every relationship.

 

He took a deep sigh before opening the drawer of the side table nd took out an ointment when he heard her moaning in pain stating that her wounds are hurting her. He ran a soothing hand on her arms as if trying to take away her pain before lyieng her down on her back nd sitting beside her on the bed. He gently applied ointment on both of her arms when she flinched in pain though she was still in deep sleep yet she could feel the burning sensation of ointment. Maan looked at her pained face nd it pained him more seeing her in pain that too due to him. And then as if in trance he did something which he never thought he’ll do ever.

 

He bent down nd gently pressed his lips on her bruised arm taking away the pain given by him. He raises his head nd looked at her face only to find its expressions getting calm as if his mere touch was soothing her nd it gave courage to Maan to continue further nd he just closed his eyes showering trail of kisses on her arm taking away her pain. He continued the same procedure on her other arm also keeping all his desires in check so that he won’t end up in hurting her again. Maan was really having hard tym in controlling himself as he felt her soft velvety skin beneath his lips but at that tym his resolution was way too strong to make him divert from it. He had vowed to bring their relationship back to normal nd then only he could think of his dilemma between his heart nd mind, he thought as he looked at her beautiful face affectionally.

 

Even in her deep sleep also Geet could recognize his loving touch nd as a result her breathing got heavied nd she started stirring in sleep nd this broke Maan’s trance nd he realized that Geet was getting up from her sleep nd may be she’ll feel uncomfortable seeing him so close to her nd right now he don’t want this as already he had destroyed the confirm zone in their relationship due to his accusations nd now he don’t want to push her more far. Therefore he immediately tucked her securely in comforter nd got up from bed to go towards couch when he felt a tug in his hand stopping him to go.

 

“Maan” he heard her hoarse whisper nd he just stood rooted at his place as he realized that she is awake now.

 

With a thudding heart he turned back to look at her only to find her still sleeping while grasping his hand tight in hers. He sighed in relief as he found her still sleeping because currently he don’t want any confrontation between them not because he was guilty to face her but because he don’t want to exert her for anything knowing very well how much exhausted she must be due to the turn of events. Yes he did want to talk to her; he did want her to hear him out but not at the cost of her health. She needs proper mental rest as he was sure that she must have passed her each nd every second by reminiscing his words that he said last night nd must have shed countless tears. infact to think this is what she must be doing from past 2 months due to his indifference nd he didn’t realize the intensity of his actions then until now. He wished he could realize it earlier then probably they wouldn’t be here where they are now. Sometimes in life a big jerk is necessary to bring you out from the world of your own assumptions nd in Maan’s case he got that jerk after the incident of last night nd if that was not enough then Geet’s indifference towards him had completed all the loopholes.

 

“Maan… Maan I haven’t removed Di’s pics. I swear of Babaji, I haven’t removed those pics from our room. Please believe me.” he heard her whimpering in sleep as he tries to disentangled their hands gently nd his heart went out for her as he saw that even in her sub conscious state also she had no complaints from him rather she was trying to prove her innocence to him when she knows it very well that it was him who is at fault.

 

“I know Geet, I know. I know that you haven’t done anything wrong, you never can. If anyone was wrong then it was me, I had done wrong with you. You are not at fault Geet, you can never. I believe you. I am sorry Geet, I am so sorry. Please forgive me.” Maan said which came out as a mere whisper for his voice was too choked with emotions while gently caressing her forehead soothing away her agony.

 

And then as if Maan’s caring yet loving touch did some magic on her as she stopped whimpering nd went into deep slumber once again while holding his hand tight in hers seeking his soothing warmth. It didn’t had it in Maan to disentangle their hands after this especially then when he could clearly see that how badly she needs his warmth even in her sub-conscious state. He knows this very well that only warmth of his care only will help her overcome from the pain he had given her nd will bring out from the shell in which she’s drowning herself. Therefore he just keeps on caressing her forehead nd hairs gently making her drown in the blissful world of dreams while holding her hand firmly in his.

 

Even after falling into deep slumber, Geet’s hold on Maan’s hand was firm nd she just keep his hand beneath her cheek like a kid as she turned in her sleep towards him as if she feared that he’ll leave her once again if she’ll leave his hand. Maan just smiled seeing her antics. Sameera was right; she’s really a kid from heart, he thought as he looked at Geet’s sleeping form while smiling affectionally. He sighed heavily when he realize that there is no chance Geet is going to leave his hand tonight neither did he wanted her to leave because like her he too needs her warmth. Therefore he just sat beside her comfortably resting his head on the bed post while holding her hand firmly in his.

 

Sleep was far away from his eyes even after having such a tiring day for he was busy looking at the features of Geet’s beautiful face which is looking so innocent nd calm in while sleeping, away from all the evil nd hypocracy of this world. What was he even thinking before accusing her of taking Sameera’s place, he thought as he sighed heavily. But then his brows knotted as something hits his brain. He remembered his conversation with Dadimaa last night where she had mentioned that Dev was continuously denying for the renovation of their room while it was Dadimaa who was adamant then why did NT said that it was Geet. Knowing Nayantara he knows that not a single conversation in this house can be escaped from her sharp ears nd here the whole renovation has taken place nd she said that she don’t now anything.

 

Dadimaa or Dev must have told her about it nd even if they didn’t then she’s capable enough to go to the roots of everything then how come she didn’t know anything about it, he thought nd his eyes widens as he realized that Nayantara may have manipulated the whole situation. She had said it to save herself when she had noticed his temper. He won’t be surprised if he would come to know that it could be Nayantara only who must have given this Idea to Dadimaa. His sharp senses instantly grasped the whole thing that must have been happened nd as the realization hits him he just closed his eyes in regret for not able to see it before.

 

How could he fail to see it before, how could he fail in thinking that NT must be trying to manipulate the whole situation when he knows it very well that how much Geet’s presence in this house irks her. He can’t blame NT completely because he himself was at fault for believing her over Geet nd he’ll regret this thing for whole of his lyf. but right now he don’t have time to be in guilt trip because right now the most important matter in his hand is to bring Geet out from her insecurities nd their relationship back to normal along with dealing with Nayantara knocking some sense in her brain so that she wont ever interfere in their lives.

 

“You had really suffered a lot because of my actions Geet which was just based on the misconceptions which I got by coming in influence of Nayantara’s words. I know that I don’t have right but I still seek your forgiveness. Please try to forgive me nd I promise that I wont let NT or anyone else harm you nd our relationship in any form. You are really an angel Geet nd I am truly sorry for hurting an angel like you. Please forgive a big tym jerk like me.” Maan whispered as he gently bend down to kiss her forehead before drifting into sleep waiting for the new day to arrive which will mark the new beginning in their lives.

 

It’s such a nice feeling to be close to the person you love the most in this world. A strange sense of contentment nd security comes in your heart for you know that no matter what but you’ll always be safe nd secure from all the evil things of this world if that person will be by your side forever. Geet too felt the same sense of contentment nd security when she opened her dizzy eyes as the rays of sunlight penetrating through the curtains falls on her eyes forcing her to come out from her dreamland. And as she opened her eyes she felt an unknown calm nd peace in her heart today which she was missing from past 2 months. A sweet smile crept on her face after the gap of 2 whole months as she welcome the new day of her life.

 

But then her eyes turned wide when she saw someone’s legs clad in tracks on which she was keeping her head comfortably while hugging the waist of the person tight like a teddy bear keeping his hand beneath her cheek nd by the fragrance itself she recognized whom does it belongs to. She don’t have to look up to know because his fragrance, his essence is embedded in her each nd every breath nd only one person could give her such calmness nd contentment with just by his mere presence nd as she raises her head to look up at him all her thoughts gets confirmed when she found him sleeping so peacefully resting his head on the bed post while holding her hand tight in his. For few moments she couldn’t fathom that was she dreaming or Maan is really here beside her holding her hand. But then the fast pace of her heartbeats nd the calmness of her heart made her believe that he’s really here nd it was not one of her dreams.

No wonder she was feeling her heart being calm nd contented today as it knew that for the one for whom it beats was beside him for whole of the night holding her close to him, she thought as she gently got up making sure not to disturb his sleep nd adore at the handsome face of her husband lovingly. He looked so calm nd innocent in his sleep. This is not the first tym when she’s watching him sleeping like this. She had lost the number of count of how many nights she had stayed awake just to see him sleeping so peacefully like him but Everytym she sees him like this her heart did the same summersault like it did for the first tym. He was there, He was there for her, so close to her for whole of the night without caring about his comfort was the only thought that was running in her mind at that moment as she keeps on looking at his face lost with a sweet smile on her face.

 

She don’t know what is he doing near her neither did she knows why is he holding her hand tightly in his nor did she knows why he slept like this in such an uncomfortable position beside her for whole of a night. All she knows that she’s loving this feeling of having him beside her like this. His just this small act was unknowingly soothing her wounded heart taking away all its fears nd insecurities. Her hands itched to caress his face feeling his skin under her palms nd finally not able to control herself anymore she slowly raises her hand nd caressed his face starting form his broad forehead to his jaw line nd cheeks feeling his stubble under her palm while looking at him lovingly. She just wished that moment to stop right then nd there where she could see him for whole of her life like this only.

 

 

She don’t know how many seconds, minutes or may be hours have been passed but she just keeps on caressing his face softly nd lovingly for it was giving an unknown satisfaction to her heart that he’s here with her so close nd so contented. Only god knows how much she missed this moment in these 2 months for which she use to awake till late at night until he drifted into deep sleep nd today after whole 2 months she was again having a chance to show her love in his sub-conscious state because she couldn’t show it to him when he was awake but atleast she could feel him, love him when he’s sleeping, she thought as she gently raises her head to give a soft peck on his forehead.

 

“What do you want to prove ha… that you had taken Sameera’s place? I told you that no one can take Sameera’s place in my heart. Absolutely No One!!!! Yet you tried this.”

 

“You can’t take Sameera’s place Geet. Did you hear that Geet, you can’t take her place neither in my heart nor in my life.”

 

Once again his words rang in her mind halting her in her actions nd her eyes started watering as the realization hits her. No she don’t have any right on him not even in his sub conscious state. She’s nothing to him but a responsibility. She had no other place in his lyf or in his heart. Why the hell did she forget this fact Everytym, she thought as she felt a lump on her throat in order to muffle the sob which was so desperate to escape from her throat. She just wiped away the tears that started flowing from her beautiful hazels from the back of her palm of her free hand nd tries to free her other hand from Maan’s grip making sure not to disturb his sleep. But more she tried to free her hand more tightened his grip gets on her hand. Geet saw him stirring in his sleep indicating that she’s disturbing his sleep with her efforts. She don’t want to disturb him but she cant be near him too because she knows that if she’ll stays near him for one more second then she’ll definitely wont be able to control herself nd break down. Therefore she just pulled out her hand from his grip with a jerk waking up Maan from his deep slumber

 

Maan was in deep nd peaceful sleep after god knows how long by just having Geet beside him. His heart was feeling so calm nd finally in peace without any kind of restlessness in it with the fact that he was with Geet whole night holding her so close. It was then in his sleep when he felt someone caressing his face gently nd lovingly nd he very well know whose soft nd gentle touch was it for he don’t have to open his eyes to know the person. Therefore he just laid over there with his eyes closed feeling her soft touch. His muscles was aching badly due to sleeping in the same position for whole of the night but he didn’t dare to open his eyes because he knows that if he’ll open them now then Geet will once again draw herself back on her shell therefore he just stayed still letting her do whatever she want.

 

Though it was difficult for him to stay still as Geet’s soft nd innocent touch was arousing him to no ends nd he just wanted to crush her close to himself nd feel her in every possible way. Just like he felt that night when they returned home after the party. Nd as the night after the party came into his mind he instantly got a grip on himself nd his uncontrollable desires with much difficulty as Geet’s touch was not helping him in any way. Therefore he just clenched his fist tight of his free hand to control himself nd don’t do anything which can worse the current situation when he felt her warm breath near his face nd he just clenched his fist more tight almost digging his nails on the flesh of his palm. Gosh! This girl don’t have any idea what she is doing to him, he thought as he clenched his jaw to suppress the groan that wanted so desperately to escape from his throat when he felt her drawing away from him.

 

Maan got confused with her sudden drawing away. He didn’t understand what happen all of a sudden? Did she noticed him awake, he thought when he felt her freeing her hand from his grip nd as a reflex he tightened his grip on her hand not wanting to let her go as he knows that moment she’ll leave him he’ll again feel the same emptiness in him that he was feeling since the tym she had distanced herself from him. But then it seems that she was adamant to free from hand so he just pretended to stir in sleep so that she could stop her movements thinking that she’s disturbing him but then when she’s finally able to free her hand with a jerk Maan too opens his eyes nd looked at her only to find her eyes misty.

 

It didn’t take him much tym to register what could have happened all of a sudden as he could clearly read her pain in her eyes. It was again the impact of his own words which was again making her drawing in her shell. No mater how much he wanted her to forget all that that he said to her that night but he knows that it wont be easy for her to forget everything so easily no matter how much he wished her to do so. He just keeps on looking deep into her eyes trying to let her know what he’s feeling right now nd she don’t have to draw herself away from him

 

“I… I am sorry… I didn’t… I don’t know how…” he heard her fumbling with her words nd before he could say or do anything he found her turning her face away nd getting down from bed.

 

“Geet” Geet heard his hoarse whisper as he hold her wrist to stop her from going nd she just closed her eyes in order to calm herself. No matter how much wounded she is due to him yet his one touch is enough to melt her.

 

“Geet, Please just listen to me once.” Maan said rather pleadingly nd Geet swallowed the lump that just formed in her throat.

 

“Please let me go Maan. I am getting late nd you’ll also get late for office.” Geet said still facing her back towards him but Maan just tightened his grip instead letting her know his intention of not leaving her like this loud nd clear.

 

“Please Maan.” Geet said rather in a choked voice finally facing him nd Maan instantly loosen his grip on her hand as he saw tears welling up in her eyes. As soon as Geet felt his grip loosen on her hand she instantly got down from the bed nd rushed towards the washroom door shutting the door behind her leaving Maan on the bed alone looking at her retreating figure regretfully.

 

“No Geet, you can’t run away from me Everytym. I won’t let you runaway from me anymore now. I can’t see you getting isolated like this Geet nd I promise that I’ll fix everything before it’ll get worse.” Maan muttered as he looked at the closed door of the washroom vowing that he’ll do each nd every thing no mater how much difficult it is for him to do if it costs to bring her nd their relationship back to normal.

 

***********************************************************

 

Maan looked at the condition of room in front of him nd smirked feeling satisfied with his efforts. Since the tym he came out from the washroom after taking shower, he was busy in this only. Today anyhow he wanted Geet to talk to him then be it in the form of taking out her frustration only. And anyways she had full right to do this just like he use to do. After the morning incident he was sure that like him Geet too is craving to talk to him, to behave with him normally just like they use to do before but she was holding herself back due to his behaviour nd words that night but not anymore. Now he won’t let her to hold back herself because it kills him seeing her like that. He likes it when she’s in her bubbly nd chirpy self; so childish yet so mature at times. He decided to walk on Vicky’s guidelines for a change nd now here he is standing in mid of the messed up room.

 

The whole picture of the room has been changed within matter of few minutes. Papers were out of the file lyieng scattering at the floor while the neat nd clean bed sheet was brutally crumbled nd laid carelessly half on bed nd half on floor. Folders were lyieng at the corner of the floor discarded while the things inside the drawers were adorning the bed nd center table. In short the whole room looks like; it has just been hit by tornado. Everything is perfect, just like the way he thought nd he was sure that it’ll definitely raise Geet’s temper to no extent as the only thing that Geet don’t like in him nd despise the most is his habbit of messing up the place in course of finding something. Then be it his cupboard or his cabin or their room. He still remembers how she use to crib irritatingly or get mad on him whenever he messed up their room.

 

He smirked as he knows it very well that after seeing the condition of the room Geet will definitely not be able to hold herself back. No matter how much angry she’s from him or distancing herself from him but this is the thing for which she wont hold herself back nd will definitely lash out her anger on it nd then before she could remind of his words he said that night he’ll say to her what he wanted to say. He smiled as his mind drifted back to the tym when Geet was hell angry on him due to this reason only.

 

**********~~~~~~~~Flashback~~~~~~~~**********

 

It was the tym when Geet had realized her feelings for Maan nd their marriage has completed 5 nd a half months. It was a usual morning for everyone but it seems that Maan was an exception as he was busy in searching some file which is needed for today’s presentation unknown of the fact that he was messing up the whole room nd soon going to be the victim of her wife’s anger. Whole room was looking horrible with files nd papers scattering here nd there along with the bed sheet nd other items of the dresser but it seems that Maan cares least for it as he was busy in searching his file amidst of the messed up room nd this is how Geet had seen him when she had came with his coffee in the room nd her jaws dropped open as she found the messed up condition of their room which she use to keep tidy with so many efforts.

 

 

“Maan” she whined out with sheer irritation gaining his attention nd that’s when Maan noticed her presence in the room.

 

“Arey Geet, Thank god you came. I am not able to find my design file of Chopra’s. I had kept it somewhere here only but not able to find it now. Today is presentation nd here my file is missing. Do you have any…” Maan who was ranting till now ignorant of the fact how angry is his wife right stopped in mid when he met the angry glare of Geet who was looking at him angrily keeping her hands on her waist making him realize what blunder he had done nd he just smiled nervously at her.

 

 

“Mr. Maan Singh Khurana how many times do I need to tell you not to mess up my room in course of finding any important file of yours?” Geet said with gritted teeth as she advanced towards him dangerously making Maan taking few steps back.

 

“Do you know that it takes me whole 2 hours to clean this room nd make it tidy again which you had messed up within a matter of 2 minutes” She continued looking into his eyes angrily nd Maan just gulped down his saliva seeing the sherni side of his wife.

 

“Geet Woh…” he tried to say something but then instantly eaten up his words seeing the angry glare of Geet.

 

“You know this is the only thing that irritates me nd I hate in you most. You go to the office after creating a mess over here nd then it was me who was left to clear all this but it seems you care less about it.” Geet said dangerously as she finally cornered Maan to a wall.

 

Be it would be some other day then they would definitely land up in losing themselves in each other’s eyes in such a position but today the situation is different as today Geet is hell angry nd fortunately or unfortunately Maan is her victim. Maan knows one thing very clearly that Geet seldom gets angry but when she use to get angry then no one absolutely no one can say a word in front of her anger then be that person is he himself from whose anger whole world use to fear.

 

“Your file that you have been searching for is in study. You yourself had kept it over there last night after going through its details. Therefore stop making more mess in already messed up room nd take you file from the study nd dare you messing up the study like our room nd I want you in the breakfast table in next 20 mins. Got it.” Geet said pointing her finger towards him nd Maan looked at her then at her pointed finger nd then back in her eyes which was spitting anger yet Maan could see innocence nd care for him in them but seeing Geet’s angry glare he just nodded his head like an obedient child nd Geet just smirked nd turned to Leave

 

“Geet Woh I am…” Maan tried to say something as Geet turned half way to look at him

 

“No it’s ok, nothing.” He instantly said while smiling sheepishly seeing her angry nd irritated glare nd made a dash out from the room before he become her prey leaving a smiling nd laughing Geet on her husband plight behind.

 

*******~~~~~~~~~~Back to Present~~~~~~~~~*******

 

Maan came out from his thoughts when he heard the faint sound of anklets indicating the someone is coming towards their room nd he don’t have to guess who the person is as he very well know that it can only be Geet. The faint nd mesmerizing sound of her anklets had always given him indication of her arrival before she could actually show up. Nd anyways the way he had planned everything he was sure that it could be Geet only afterall he had made sure that he could scare poor Nakul too much with his anger that at the end he would approach Geet only for help. So now here she’s coming towards their room where her husband is waiting for her with a surprise.

 

Maan instantly turned his back towards the door as soon as he felt Geet near the door pretending to search some file but continuously looking at her from the corner of his eyes. Geet’s eyes widens in shock as soon as she enters inside the room seeing the messed up condition of the whole room which was not looking less then a 4 year old kid’s room with all the papers nd other things lyieng here nd there on the floor. And she was sure that once again her darling husband is responsible for this worse condition of their room nd as expected she fumed in anger as she scanned the condition of whole room nd looked at Maan angrily who was facing his back towards her pretending to find his file but least she knows that he was smirking seeing the victory of his plan.

 

“Where the hell did I kept that file” Maan said as he throws back the cushion that he had picked up from the couch nd it straight away landed on Geet’s face increasing her temper even more while Maan was finding it hard to control his laugh as he saw Geet’s expression from the corner of his eyes. Just 10 more seconds nd she’ll definitely burst out.

 

“Arey Geet Thank god you came. Had you seen a blue color file I am not able to find it. I had kept it somewhere over here only last night nd…” and he deliberately stops knowing very well that he had rubbed enough of her sherni side nd now within no tym she’ll show that to him.

 

And as expected Geet looked angrily at him nd started advancing towards him dangerously making Maan to take step back. He was waiting impatiently for her to say anything as he looked deep into her hazels but she didn’t said anything rather then just looking at him angrily nd finally she cornered him to the nearby wall looking deep into his eyes nd Maan smirked mentally as he found the same anger nd irritation in them that he had always seen during such kind of situations nd now he knows very well that within no tym she’ll be back to her sherni avatar.

 

“10…9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…1” He did the countdown mentally seeing the angry glare of his wife waiting for her to open her mouth nd lash out her anger on him.

 

“Maan Aapne Phir se…” As expected Geet had just opened her mouth to say something to him when she reminded of what happen that night making her realize that she had no right to do this.

 

No she can’t do this. She had no right to boss on him as he’ll again think that she’s trying to involve in his life forcefully. Nd as the realization hits her she immediately lowered her gaze hiding away the tears that started firming in her eyes nd took a deep breath to calm herself nd not to show her vulnerable side to him. Maan who was observing her expressions till now felt a pang in his heart seeing her expressions change from anger to the realization to once again blank. But before he could do or say anything he found Geet moving away from him to the nearby table nd after fishing out for some tym she took out the desired file she came back to Maan who was still standing against the wall watching her amused.

 

“Your file. I found it at the side table this morning so kept it at this table thinking it to be important.” Geet said as she extended the file towards Maan who was watching her unblinkingly.

 

“Maan, File.” Geet said yet again in order to gain his attention nd Maan just took at the file absent mindedly all the while looking into her eyes which she was hiding by lowering her lashes.

 

“Geet” Maan called out to her as he holds her wrist stopping her from going when he found her turning to leave.

 

Geet just closed her eyes in order to calm her erratic heartbeats when she found Maan closing the distance between them. He don’t have any idea what his mere presence do to her nd here he was standing so close to her that his warm breath was fanning her neck making her body burn with desires, she thought as she clenched her fist tight in order to calm herself when she found Maan turning her towards him. Maan gently turned her towards him holding her shoulders nd raises her face through her chin so that she could face him.

 

Maan looked in her hazels from one to another only to find her holding back her tears nd his resolution to take out from this pain gets stronger. Geet looked into his deep-honeyed eyes trying to know what was going through his mind when she saw him doing something that she had never ever dreamt off. She saw him holding his ears with both of his hands while looking at her with a slight smile nd Geet didn’t missed the genuineness  in his eyes with this gesture of his but what she couldn’t understand that why is he saying sorry.

 

“Geet I am Sorry. Woh actually…” Maan said as he holds his ears looking into her eyes trying to let her know that he’s genuinely sorry when Geet interrupted him.

 

“Maan its ok you don’t have to be sorry for this. I don’t mind” Geet said interrupting him in between nd a smile adorned on Maan’s face when he saw her forgiving him so easily but her next set of words crashed all his hopes.

 

“I mean I know that you are searching your important file nd didn’t paid heed that the whole room is getting messed up. Its ok you don’t worry I’ll ask Nakul to clear all this. Infact I myself will help Nakul in it. You don’t worry.” Geet said with a slight smile in order to conceal her pain nd Maan just clenched his fist tight as he felt the similar pain in his heart seeing her indifference yet again.

 

“Come for breakfast soon Maan or else you’ll be late for office.” Geet said while smiling slyly before leaving the room nd Maan just stood over there dumbfounded holding the file in his hands looking at her retreating figure.

 

He throws away the file in frustration seeing the failure of his plan. How many expectations nd hopes he had built that no matter what but Geet will definitely be back to herself when she’ll see the messed up condition of their room but then how can he forget that it’s Geet who is always unexpected. In other circumstances she should have shown her anger to him nd taken out all her frustration but this tym she’s really hurted very much no not hurted he had shattered her heart then how can he think of her being normal so easily, he thought as he sighed in defeat as he sat on the couch holding his head between his hands.

 

Why is she not understanding that it kills him seeing her behaving so indifferently with him? It kills him to see her suffocating herself like this that she can’t be herself in front of him. No he wont let her di that. He had already done enough damage to her nd their relationship but now he won’t let Geet to repeat the same. He can go to any extent to bring her back so what of this plan fails that doesn’t means that he’ll get weak from his resolution. His resolution to fix all the damages done by him is way too strong to get weak with such failures infact it will only strengthen his determination. Determining this he gets up from the couch nd headed outside the room towards the study to execute his second plan.

 

Outside the room Vicky was witnessing each nd every interaction that happened between Maan nd Geet nd he sighed heavily seeing the failure of his idea. He cant believe it that his; Vicky the great Love Guru’s idea didn’t worked when the scenario that he had seen had made him 100% sure that their plan will definitely work but then seeing Geet’s reaction towards everything has crashed not only Maan’s hopes but also his expectations too. He saw Maan coming out from the room therefore he instantly hid behind the pillar not wanting to face the wrath of his elder brother on the failure of the plan which was actually his idea.

 

“Poor Maan Bhai, God knows what else he has to do to manofy Geet Bhabhi. Please God give my brother enough strength so that he could face my sherni Bhabhi.” Vicky said dramatically while looking upwards nd then took out a small diary nd pen from his jacket

 

Mission:

 

Manofy Geet Bhabhi

 

Plan A: irritate Geet Bhabhi by messing up the whole room.

Status: Failed

Conclusion: it’s not always easy to manofy your angered wife as she can behave unexpectedly at times.

 

Score:

 

Maan Bhai: 0

Geet Bhabhi: 1

 

With this entry he closed his diary sighing heavily at the fate of his elder brother whose condition has become just like any other husbands of the world in the love of his wife.

 

*****************************************************

 

Maan was going towards the study when he stopped dead in the tracks outside Nayantara’s room nd all the things that happened between Geet nd him due to her manipulation flash in front of his eyes making his temper rise to new level. He had to handle NT too along with bringing Geet to normal so that she won’t interfere again in their lives; he thought nd knocked the door of NT’s room.

 

Nayantara was combing her hairs after coming out from shower when she heard the knock at the door nd as she turned to look at the person after asking him to come in her eyes widens in horror seeing Maan standing in front of her while crossing his arms across his chest. The colour of her face drained out as she saw intimidating eyes of Maan. She was dreading for this moment since last day when she had noticed the change in Maan’s behaviour towards Geet at the breakfast table thatsy she was deliberately not coming in front of him for she was sure that it wont took long for Maan’s sharp senses to know what actually must have been happened nd by seeing Maan’s expressions she was sure that he had grasped each nd every thing.

 

“Veer… Veerji” She muttered with great difficulty seeing the deadly look on Maan’s face.

 

“What happen Nayantara? It seems you are not happy seeing me over here?” Maan said in a casual yet cold tone as he made his way inside her room nd NT just gulped her saliva.

 

“No, its nothing like that. Woh this is the first tym you came to my room so I was just surprised.” NT said as she smiled nervously nd Maan just smirked.

 

“Everything has a first tym NT. There’s nothing to be get surprise in it. Just like the renovation happen in my room” Maan said emphasizing at the last line nd NT just looked other side getting caught off guard. Wasn’t Dev was enough last night for lecturing her a big tym of her renovation plan that now Maan too had to do the same, she thought as she looked nervously at Maan.

 

“What are you saying Veerji? I don’t get you.” NT said nervously trying her best to keep her voice normal.

 

“Don’t you know NT what I am saying? Ok then let me elaborate myself. Day before yesterday a renovation took place in my room without my knowledge where all the old things along with Sameera’s pictures were replaced with the new things nd Geet’s picture nd you know what’s the funny part is that everybody in the mansion even the servants knows about it except four persons. Geet, Annie, Savera nd ‘You’. Geet, Annie nd Savera was out for shopping so they were obvious about it so who else is left? ‘You’.” Maan said emphasizing on the last word looking straight at NT’s eyes who was now looking everywhere but him.

 

“Woh Veerji…” NT tried to reason herself with some sentence only to be interrupted by Maan.

 

“I am not finished yet NT. so where was I? Ya, it was only you who don’t know anything about renovation even after being at KM for whole day, even after being with Dadimaa nd Dev during whole conversation, even after giving this whole idea of renovation to Dadimaa.” Maan revealed nd NT felt like the ground beneath her feet slipping away with his revelation. How he knew that it was she, she thought as she looked at Maan horrified.

 

Well this was Maan who never waste tym before going to the depth of everything nd here the thing is related to his nd Geet’s relationship then how can he be lousy in that. He had confronted Dev while returning back from Gym this morning only where he came to know that the whole idea was of NT nd it was she who had convinced Dadimaa much to his protest. Maan though don’t have any doubt before also but now after talking to Dev he was confirmed about the fact so now he is here to confront NT for his deeds.

 

“Veerji I…” she tried to say again something only to be cut by Maan yet again.

 

“You had done enough of your talking that night NT. Now it’s my turn. I don’t say anything then it doesn’t mean that I don’t know what’s happening in front of my eyes. I know how much Geet’s presence irks you in this house nd how you always finds chance to make her fall in everyone’s eyes just like you planned to make her fall in my eyes. Isn’t it? Nd don’t you dare to deny it NT as I am not a fool. I know each nd everything but it was just I don’t want yours nd Dev’s relationship to be spoiled I was quiet till now. But don’t consider my quietness as my weakness NT as if I can remain quiet for yours nd Dev’s relation then I can break that quietness also for the welfare of mine nd Geet’s relationship. Therefore from now on I don’t want you anywhere near Geet nd if by any chance mark my words NT by any chance you are again planning to plot something against Geet which can worse our relationship then remember NT I wont give you any warning before taking any action like I am giving you now. next tym you wont get chance of even being warned. Rest you are intelligent enough to know what I mean. Got it” Maan said rather in a threatening voice looking at NT dangerously to which she just nodded her head meekly nd Maan just turned to leave smirking.

 

“One more thing NT. I guess it’s been long since you had visited your parents. They must be missing you. Isn’t it?” Maan said as he stopped near the door facing his back towards her before leaving the room leaving a fumed NT behind gritting her teeth to understand the meaning of his words.

 

“I’ll get back to this Maan Singh Khurana. Sooner or later I’ll get back to this.” NT muttered with gritted teeth as she saw Maan’s retreating figure going towards study

 

Geet looked at the door of the study nth tym since morning only to find it still closed. Her forehead crinkled in worry as she saw the close door again nd again. Well, the reason of her worry is not the close door of the study but the person behind that close door who is working maniacally since morning leaving his breakfast nd now lunch behind. God knows what kind of important work he is doing that he doesn’t have tym for even breakfast, she thought as she mentally groaned on Maan’s carelessness. Why don’t he understand that his slight carelessness is a big reason for her worry for her but it seems that he least care about her worry nd enjoying doing his work without caring that someone is dyeing over here in his worry, she thought as she once again looked at the study door only to find it in the same position.

 

Since morning she had tried numerous ways to make Maan eat something. If not anything then atleast some fruits. Vicky, Annie, Dev nd even Nakul she had send everyone inside the study with this item or other but Everytym all she got is disappointment as Maan had refused to even look at the food then forget about eating it nd scared the hell out of the person instead who had gone there with the tray of his food. Just like when she had again sent Nakul inside with lunch which have all his favorites nd especially made by her but it again met by same treatment nd poor Nakul had literally ran for his lyf out from study along with food after hearing Maan’s loud nd roaring voice. if Dadimaa would be here then she don’t have to worry this much as she knows that Maan can refuse anyone but not to her nd she can anyhow made him eat something but to her luck she had gone for some cultural function nd will return after lunch.

 

By every passing minute Geet is now getting irritated with his behaviour as he’s really behaving like a 3 year old kid who use to make people run behind him for having a glass of milk. She really don’t understand what does he really want by doing all this as he himself had mentioned that he had an important presentation lined up today in the office nd now instead of going to office he had locked himself inside the study asking everyone not to disturb him. But how can she not worry as her lyf resides in him. She’s well aware of the health issues he use to face whenever he ignores his health amidst of work nd here he didn’t even had a single grain since morning then how can she be calm nd composed after seeing him like this.

 

There was a tiny miny thought at somewhere at the back of her mind that he’s doing it purposefully. May be he wanted her to talk to him nd treat him like before but the at the next moment she just shrugged it off as she still remembers how Maan had accused her of taking Sameera’s place in his lyf therefore there’s no chance he’ll do all this purposefully, she thought as she sighed dejectedly at her fate. Many tymes she thought of going inside nd shut all his work until he had something but Everytym she stops herself as she reminds of his words. But then again her love for him is too strong to feel the wound given by him which was not letting her rest in peace. She was in a turmoil yet again when she had to again choose any one option from the given two options nd the irony is that once again both the options are right at their place.

 

If she chooses option 1 i.e. not interfering in his life anymore for she had no right then she’ll save her heart from being crushed anymore but then it’ll cost his health, his well being which she cant bear. And what’s the use of saving that heart which will be in more pain seeing him in problem. And if she chooses option 2 i.e. go to him nd forcefully shut all his work just like she use to do before then it’ll make her heart calm as it’ll be sure then he’s all safe nd fine but the fear of being the victim of his harsh words nd actions once again was stopping her to so everything before. Once again she felt like she’s on crossroads where she has to choose any one direction where either her heart will be crushed more or either it’ll be in peace knowing that the person for whom it beats is all safe nd fine. She thought for a while nd then took a deep breath as she finally made a decision nd made her way towards kitchen with a determination.

 

***************************************************

 

“Great going Bhai. I guess this plan of yours will definitely work.” Vicky exclaimed in happiness as he saw Geet going towards the kitchen from behind the pillar nd Maan smirked as he heard the information given by Vicky through Bluetooth.

 

 

After the failure of Plan 1 Maan was more agitated to bring Geet in talking terms to him. Though he was sure of his oops Vicky’s Morning plan also but Geet getting control on her anger had crushed all his hopes. But nevertheless he had many other ways too to manofy his roothi wife. And the way he had opted now had 100% surety of its success as he knows that no matter what Geet will never let her insecurities nd fear to come in front of his health. He still remembers how Geet use to boss over him whenever he ignore his meals in amidst of work nd even last day also inspite of being so hurt she had made sure that he wont skip his meal nd had sent lunch through Nakul with an excuse of Dadimaa sending this lunch for him.

 

He chuckled as he remembered the lame excuse of his wife. What had she thought that he won’t recognize the aroma nd taste of the food made by her? No! A big No! How can he not recognize the essence of her food when it etched all over his heart, when he had craved for it all the time during his stay in London? But that’s his wife Geet who thinks that no one can catch her lie but she don’t know that she’s a horrible liar nd too naive nd innocent when it comes to hide anything. And especially if she do something for him then it was just impossible to hide it from him.

 

So now her this care nd concern for him only is going to make his plan successful. No, he was not using her or her innocence or taking advantage of it, he never can. It was just he was taking the help of her care nd concern t bring her back to normal like before. Therefore he purposefully skipped his breakfast nd now lunch nd locked himself in the study on the pretext of doing some important work after asking Dev to handle today’s presentation. He knows it very well that when Geet wont find him on the breakfast table then she’ll definitely be get worried for him nd do whatever she can in order to make sure that he had his meal.

 

But he’s also Maan who knows each nd every trick of his wife therefore he had really scared the hell out of everyone even Annie too who seems to be in mood to patch up with him but the matter in Maan’s hand was much more important then anything. He too wanted to see to which extent Geet could avoid him nd what all weapons she can use because he knows that at the end she herself will come to him. he don’t need to take the help of Vicky’s plan this tym as he knows her too well to plan something on his own accord. But Vicky was with him in this plan as he was informing him each nd every move of Geet via Bluetooth just like he informed him just now about Geet heading towards Kitchen making Maan realize that success is just a step away now.

 

“Really Bhai you know Bhabhi too well. Now I understand why you were so sure of this plan of yours.” Vicky’s voice broke the trail of his thoughts nd he comes back in the present realizing that Vicky is on call.

 

“Are you sure she has headed towards Kitchen only.” Maan confirmed yet again as he sat on the chair nd opened his laptop.

 

“Yes Bhai nd the way she had left towards kitchen it seems that today she’ll be in peace after getting your mouth stuffed with food.” Vicky laughed at his own statement making Maan chuckle too.

 

“Just few more minutes Geet nd then everything will be normal between us like before.” Maan thought as he cuts the call after asking Vicky to give him all the updates about Geet.

 

Outside the study Vicky was grinning happily as he was sure now that everything will be normal again between his Bhai nd Bhabhi nd he is happy that he’s playing a part in the mission of bringing these two peoples close to his heart together. Savera would be so proud of him; he thought as he sighed happily nd once again took out his diary to update it with current status.

 

Plan B: Make your wife’s care nd concern for you as your weapon when stuck up in such kind of situations.

Status: Work-in-Progress (95% successful)

Conclusion: Sometimes unknowingly it’s your own wife who helps you in giving ideas to bring things normal between both of you.

 

Score:

 

Maan Bhai: 1

Geet Bhabhi: 1

 

*****************************************************

 

“Pata nahi what he’s upto today that he’s behaving like this? First he made the mess in whole room for finding that so called important file of his nd now locked up himself in the study leaving all his work nd skipping his meals. He’s not even having his food if someone takes it to him in the study also. God knows how much tym of his will it consume ns what kind of important work is he doing that he’s starving like this. Sometimes he seems to be like an enigma to me. No matter how hard I try to know him it seems that I don’t know him at all. But whatever I wont let him play with his health like this. What does he think of himself that he can do whatever he wants by scaring others? No Way!!!! I’ll also see how will he not have anything now. Arey, har waqt inki manmaani thodi Na chalegi. What would be the worse that he’ll yell at me, shout at me, will say bitter words to me Na? I’ll listen to them but I won’t let him do what he wants. Hai Na Babaji! Haan.” She cribbed as she arranged Maan’s plate in the kitchen but it was more to convince her heart who fears to go before Maan nd do something for him but at the same tym it can’t see him plying with his health like this too.

 

“Someone seems to be really busy.” Geet heard a familiar voice from behind making her halt in her actions for a while but then she again resumed her work ignoring the person.

 

“Ignoring me won’t change the fact Geet from which you are trying to run away.” He said as he walked nd stood beside her.

 

“Listen Vidyut I am really in no mood of listening any kind of sarcasm from you. So please let me do my work peacefully.” Geet said as she puts the food in the tray nd turned to go towards the door walking past him.

 

“Why don’t you accept Geet that you are run away not only from me but from the reality too?” Vidyut’s words made her halt in her steps nd she turned to look at him only to find him smirking

 

“Aap Kehna kya chahte ho?” she asked as she looked at him confusingly.

 

“Yahi ki inspite of knowing everything you are acting like a blind. Maan had said you so many things that night, had humiliated you so much yet you are worrying for his well being leaving all your self-respect behind. What do you think Geet that by taking food for him nd showing your care for him like this will evoke love in his heart for you? You are wrong Geet.” Vidyut said as he took calculative steps towards her nd stand right in front of her while Geet just looked other side preventing herself from his piercing gaze.

 

“Yes you are wrong Geet. Geet I know Maan since childhood therefore I know that once he’ll be committed to anything then he’ll be committed to it till his last breath. Be it any person or anything nd then nothing or anyone can budge that commitment. Thatsy I am saying that no matter what you do, how much you do for him but he won’t give you any place in his heart because Maan still loves Sameera nd he’ll always be no matter that she’s not alive anymore now. All you’ll get from him is his humiliation nd hatred just like that night nd that I can’t see. Whether you believe it or not but its true that Maan will never love you nd the only person who will love you for whole of the life is me nd only me. Maan will never understand you nd your emotions for he was too lost in the memories of Sameera to acknowledge your feelings nd the only person who will understand you nd ur feelings nd will keep you happy for whole of the lyf is me nd only me.” Vidyut said in a soft tone knowing very well that he’s hitting a right point nd Geet snapped up her head in shock to look at him after seeing his audacity. He’s professing his love to the girl who’s now wife of his best friend. Is this his friendship, she thought as she looked at him disgustingly.

 

“Yes Geet only I can love you for whole of the life. Only I can keep you happy forever nd this fact you also know very well. If Maan wouldn’t have came in between then probably today we both would be with each other nd would be happy in our world. But don’t worry Geet, its still not that late. Just leave everything nd come with me. I’ll tell truth to everyone nd trust me no one will say anything to you. You don’t deserve this humiliation, this hatredness Geet. You only deserve love nd happiness nd only I can give you not that Maan. Only I can fulfill those dreams those fantasies of yours that you had seen nd that should be present in a normal married couple. Geet only I can give you all those pleasures that you deserves in your married lyf. Only I can…”

 

“Enough!! Not a word more now.” Geet’s loud voice laced in anger interrupted Vidyut in between nd he looked at her only to find her looking at him angrily.

 

“Captain Vidyut Singh Shekhawat, in case you had forgotten then let me remind you that I am not a teenager or a bachelorette that you are confessing your love to me. I am a married woman nd your best friend’s wife to whom you are professing your love shamelessly. It would be better if you try to be in your limits.” Geet said with her eyes spitting fire. If looks can kill then Vidyut definitely would have been turned into ashes by now. Today she is not worried of his reaction, today she is not scared of his anger, today she is not guilty of hurting him because today he had crossed all his limits by saying her to leave Maan nd go with him.

 

“I don’t believe this Geet. That man had humiliated you so much, had said so harsh words to you, Arey he don’t even trust you enough yet you are defending that man” Vidyut said as he looked at her in disbelief.

 

“Maan. His name is Maan nd he’s my husband therefore take his name with a respect in front of me nd wo mere saath jaisa bhi behave kare still he’s the best person. And as far as his behaviour towards me is concerned then he’s my husband therefore he had full right on me nd he can behave the way he wants just like I had this right on him. He must have behaved badly with me that night but I know my husband too well therefore I know that whatever happen that night was not completely his mistake. And anyways I don’t have to learn from you to how to be with my husband nd how to be not. And as far as that incident is concerned then I had said it before also nd again saying that whatever happened between us was a matter between a husband nd a wife nd I don’t want any kind of interference from an outsider especially you who don’t have even this much shame that he’s trying to spoil the married life of his best friend. I am married to Maan in front of the whole world nd the oaths that we had taken are not just for the name sake. I believe them nd firmly follow them. to cry out loud we are husband nd wife not only for the world but for each other too nd with that relation only I had given this right to Maan to behave with me the way he want, just like he had given me the right to care for him, to boss over him nd do whatever I want for his well-being. Nd you are asking me to leave Maan nd go with you because you think that I am not happy. Does only physical pleasure is everything to make your marriage work? Aren’t emotions, true care, the feeling of togetherness is enough to make your marriage work? huh answer me? but you know what you cant because for the people like you only physical love matters. they domnt care about feelings or emotions of other persons. Today you had crossed all your limits Vidyut with your shameless confession to me who is your best friend’s wife nd that best friend trust you like anything.” Geet said all in a trance looking straight into his eyes while Vidyut look at her speechless.

 

“You know what till now I use to feel guilty that though unknowingly I had hurted you but today I thank Babaji that my heart never evoked any feelings for you nd inspite of you Maan is there in my lyf because the person the person who is shamelessly professing his love to his best friend’s wife nd asking her to back out from her marriage can never hold any respect for any relationship nd therefore he can never be a good partner. This is the last tym I am telling you stay away from me nd my married lyf as you really had no place in it.” Geet said before leaving from the kitchen along with the food tray leaving Vidyut behind looking at her retreating figure unbelievingly.

 

“You are saying all this due to that blindfold which this marriage had tied around your eyes but I’ll also see Geet till how long this belief of yours will be intact as I know Maan will never give you Sameera’s place nd sooner or later you had to come to me only nd that’s my promise. You are mine nd no one can keep you apart from me Geet. No one” Vidyut muttered as he looked at Geet’s retreating form before leaving the kitchen.

 

******************************************************

 

Unknown of the confrontation happened between Geet nd Vidyut, Maan was waiting for Geet impatiently in the study. Vicky had already informed him that he had seen Geet coming out from kitchen along with a food tray nd Maan was sure that it is only for him. But then what is taking her so long, he thought as he looked at the door impatiently nd then shifted his gaze towards the laptop. His stomach was grumbling badly due to hunger as he didn’t had anything since morning but he didn’t cared as he knows that all this problem is nothing in front of the reward which he’ll get in form of Geet’s forgiveness.

 

Therefore he just sat in front of the laptop working ignoring the pleading of his hungry stomach convincing him that soon Geet will come with food nd all his complaints will be solved. He was trying to concentrate on the on the laptop only when he heard the click sound of opening of knob of the door nd he smirked knowing very well who is there thanks to the tinkling sound of her anklets that had always informed him  about her arrival. He immediately shifted his concentration towards laptop pretending to be work seriously as he saw Geet coming inside from the corner of his eyes unknown of the storm going in her heart.

 

Geet though has been strong enough in front of Vidyut to take a stand for Maan nd their marriage but she couldn’t deny the fact that his each nd every word were like adding fuel to the fire of insecurities nd fear lurking in her heart yet she cant see Vidyut crossing his limits nd bad mouthing bout Maan. True, she was hurted due to Maan’s behaviour off late but it is also true that at the same tym she loves him insanely. Therefore she can’t see anyone saying anything about Maan or their marriage.

 

Yes she knows that Maan can never love her, she can never get Sameera’s place in his lyf nd heart yet she cant even think of a single second without him nd here Vidyut had an audacity to ask her to leave Maan nd move ahead with him as Maan wont be ever able to love her nd fulfill her desires. How cheap anyone’s mentality could be, she thought as she slowly made her way upstairs towards study. She had never ever thought that a person like Vidyut could think so low. How can even think of her leaving Maan for this reason? Maan’s name was written not only in her heart but on her soul, on her each breath nd she’s only his not only in this lyftym but in every lyftym no matter if he loves her back or not then how can Vidyut ask her to leave Maan.

 

A part of her though feeling bad for talking to Vidyut like this as there was a tym when he was her god friend but then the way he had shamelessly profess his love to her today had wash away that tiny miny guilt nd she didn’t regret her words a bit. Till now she was quiet because she thought that though unknowingly Vidyut had got hurt due to her but what he did today was enough for her to come out from the guilt of hurting him. this is not the first tym that Vidyut had tried to convince her to leave Maan but this is for the first tym he had crossed all his limits therefore she’s happy to lose a friend like him then to bear him saying something awful for Maan nd their marriage.

 

She did the right thing nd she don’t regret for her behaviour, she thought nd sighed heavily. She really wish now that Vidyut knows his place nd he wont interfere in their lyf anymore, she thought as she took a deep breath when she realized that she had reached her destination .Vidyut’s words were still ringing in her mind but she decided to shrug it off as she don’t want Maan to witness the storm going in her heart especially then when she don’t know how Maan is going to react when he’ll see him there in the study. With the thudding heart she opened the door of the study nd entered inside only to find Maan engrossed in his laptop totally ignoring her presence.

 

She stood there for sometym looking at him working on laptop nd unknowingly she felt her heart calm just by looking at him. His mere sight is enough to make all her restlessness nd problems vanish in thin air. At that very moment she realized that no matter how much hurt she’s due to him or how much indifferent she’s with him yet she can’t live without him even for a minute then forget about whole lyf. The way Vidyut had confessed his love to her today had given birth to a new fear in her heart nd that fear is of losing Maan. She just wanted to run in his arms at that moment where she can hide herself from all those people who tries her to separate from him for she knows that she’ll be always safe over there nd no one can separate her from him. But then the reality of the situation stops her from doing so nd she just stood over there looking at Maan convincing herself that Maan is there with her nd no one will separate her from him.

 

“Why is she not saying or doing anything?” Maan thought as he looked at Geet from the corner of his eyes when he found her standing still at her place nd in order to gain her attention he hits the pen stand on his left die on the pretext of taking pen still pretending to be oblivious of her presence

 

The faint noise made by Maan break Geet’s trance nd she realized for what she was here. She looked at Maan only to find him still working totally oblivious of her presence. She opened her mouth to call him but then shut it up not knowing how he will react to her presence but then she had to call him anyhow therefore she coughed hard in order to gain his attention but Maan completely ignored her nd continues working nd Geet pouted annoyingly seeing him so engrossed in work that he’s not realizing her presence also but least she knows that Maan was really having a gala tym as this is what he wants nd he just smirked seeing Geet pouting from the corner of his eyes.

 

 

She taps her foot impatiently to gain his attention but it didn’t budge Maan as he just sat over there relaxed. At last she coughed little hard then before to gain his attention nd Maan knew that this is the tym as it won’t be safe if he would push her further.

 

“Nakul I told you before also I don’t need any food. Stop disturbing me again nd again nd go from here.” Maan said in a stern voice without shifting his gaze from the laptop nd Geet’s jaws dropped open listening to him. From which angle did she looks like Nakul, she thought as she looked at herself from top to bottom while Maan is finding it hard to control his laugh.

 

 

 

“Maan! Maan!!” she finally called out loud in irritation this tym nd Maan just close his eyes for a while listening to her usual self after god knows how long.

 

“Arey Geet, when did you came? I didn’t realize. Anyways is there’s something important to say?” Maan asked innocently as he turned to look at Geet

 

“Have something Maan. You didn’t had anything since morning.” Geet said sternly nd coldly trying her best not to show her concern but Maan could see her hidden care behind those stern words of hers.

 

“Ummm Geet I had lots of work to do so I can’t have anything until I finish my work. You don’t worry I’ll have it later.” Maan said as he once again turned his head towards the laptop only to irritate her further.

 

“Maan it’ll hardly take any tym. You can do your work later also.” she said rather pleadingly but Maan had his own plans

 

“Ummm No Geet I don’t have even tym to breathe then forget about food. I’ll have it afterwards you don’t worry.” Maan said still looking in his laptop nd Geet just fumed in anger. Why the hell he’s not understanding that his health is more important than work, she thought as she looked at him angrily. Maan knows that he’s hitting the right point nd all his thoughts are confirmed when he saw Geet marching towards him angrily nd next moment he found his laptop being shut hard nd there stood his sherni looking at him angrily exactly the way he wants

 

 

“What the hell…”

 

“Chup! Bilkul Chup!” isn’t it use to be his line, Maan thought as he looked at Geet who was talking to him in a commanding voice nd looking at him sternly as she pointed her finger towards him nd Maan just gulped his saliva seeing her so angry. Guess he had pushed her too far then necessary but he was actually liking it as he really missed her bossing over him like this all this while.

 

Geet draws her finger back still giving him a stern look nd eyed him to have food. Maan looked at her nd then at the food nd just turned his face sideways while crossing his arms across his chest not wanting to have food until he finishes his work. Geet gets irritated nd pouted as she saw his childish behavior. He’s now really behaving like a 3 year old kid who gives a tough tym to everyone to feed him something, she thought as she saw Maan’s tantrums not less then a kid. Therefore she turns his face towards herself nd feed him forcefully the morsel that she had just broken. Everything happened so sudden that Maan couldn’t understand first nd by the tym he could register what’s happening Geet was already feeding him.

 

This was not the part of his plan but he was loving the way things are going on its own accord, he thought as he continues feasting the morsels from Geet. At that moment Geet seems to forget everything that had happened between them for her mind just concentrating on feeding him. nd anyways she had never ever thought about anything else when it comes to Maan just like now when she had forget all the rude behaviour nd harsh words of Maan in front of his health. Maan just keeps on looking at her in awe as she feeds him food as if he was a child nd she’s his mother. He didn’t stopped her neither did he said anything but just continues eating while looking at her lovingly.

 

She’s truly an angel who never thinks about herself in front of him or anyone. Even if someone could kill her then also she’ll think good only for that person. What was he even thinking before hurting her like this, he thought as he looked at his wife adoringly. Unknown to the thoughts going in her husband’s mind Geet was busy feeding him. she had enough of his tantrums since morning. What does he think he can do whatever he wants nd no one would be able to stop him? Well then he’s all wrong as she’s still alive nd till now she’s with him he had to listen to her. Only she knows how much restless she was till now seeing him starving like this nd now she’s feeling calm nd contented by feeding him like this but what made her more happy is that Maan didn’t said anything harsh to her. At that moment she forget what Vidyut had said to her few mins back in the kitchen, she forget how Maan had behaved with her that night, she forget everything nd all she could remember is Maan nd only his well being. His health matters to her the most nd in front of that nothing else is important. Not even her shattered heart, not even her wounded soul. She loves him beyond the limit of sanity then how can she see him so careless towards himself. Even if after that Maan accuses her again also or say anything harsh then she won’t feel bad as then she’ll be knowing that he’s fine.

 

She thanked her Babaji umpteenth tym that he let her choose the right option but at the same tym this thought was also in the back of her mind that this is all temporary nd she still don’t have any right on him but till long his health nd well-being is concerned everything else seems to be oblivious for Geet even her own hurt. She was lost in her thoughts while feeding him when she felt a tug in her wrist nd as she looked up she saw Maan holding her hand nd looking at her adoringly with a soft smile playing on his lips. Geet looked at him questioningly yet innocently while battling her lashes to which Maan just forwarded the morsel in her mouth to feed her all the while looking into her eyes.

 

“I know if I haven’t had anything since morning then even you also didn’t had anything since morning.” Maan said hoarsely nd Geet just fell more nd more for this gesture of his

 

He cares for her, he really cares for her that means he still understands her unsaid words nd emotions like always, her heart squealed in happiness as Maan continues feeding her all the while looking at her unblinkingly but then the events of that night played back in her mind replacing all the happiness with pain nd she realized that whatever was happening is not right. She was here to make Maan eat something not for all this. Yes she forcefully fed him but she really don’t want Maan to think that she’s trying to force herself on him neither did she want any kind of favour from Maan to make her feel better just because he was feeling that she’s hurted due to him. This relationship was a compromise for him nd now she don’t want him to make anymore compromises for her sake. Be it any other day before that night then she would be screaming nd jumping in happiness with his this sweet gesture but everything is different today as today she knows her place in his lyf. Therefore she immediately backed away a bit halting Maan in between who was looking at her confusingly.

 

“Woh you have the rest of food by yourself. I had some important work to do.” Geet said as he looked other way nd turned to leave when she felt a tug on her wrist yet again nd she closed here eyes realizing that Maan had once again catch her lie.

 

Nd she was right as Maan had observed the change of expressions on her face nd knows very well what should be going in her mind but before he could do something Geet backed away. No he can’t let her go like this especially now when he was so close to his success. Anyhow he had to make Geet speak to him to take out her anger on him or anything but he wanted to bring Geet back to her normal self nd for that he can go to any extent.

 

“Why are you behaving so indifferent with me Geet from past 2 days?” She heard his voice laced with remorse as he turned her through shoulders nd raises her chin so that she could face him but Geet was tongue-tied. Be it any other day then she would have cribbed him how hurt she is but after that night she knows that she don’t have any such right.

 

“Geet whatever happened that night I am really…” Maan tried to apologize for that night but before he could say anything in between Geet interrupted him in between

 

“Dadimaa would be at home any moment Maan. I had to prepare tea for her. Aap please pehle poora khana khatam kar lena nd uske baad apna kaam karna or else you’ll fell ill, Please it’s a request.” Geet said gently removing his hand from her shoulder nd left from study as soon as she can leaving Maan behind puzzled.

 

Even in her indifference Maan didn’t missed how much she cares for him nd for a moment she is ready to shrug off her fear nd insecurities nd this is what he wants when he thought of this plan nd it was successful also until Geet remembered of that night nd as soon as she replayed that night she was again to her cold self nd like always his plan backfired. Oh! How badly he wish to remove that night from there lives forever but it can’t be possible right. All he can do is to bring her back to normal as like this only he can rectify his mistake. He knows that he had work really hard as the wound he had given to her is not going to heal soon but at the same tym he was happy also when he remembered her words that she said before leaving the study. How she has requested him to finish his food completely before going to work or else he’ll get ill. At one moment she runs away from him due to her insecurities but at the same tym she cares for him too. From past 2 days she was avoiding even being near him or even looking at him nd today she fed him from her own hands nd its not a thing to be ignored. So let’s just say that today he had just made a crack on the glass nd he still had to work hard to break that glass completely nd Bring that old Geet back, he thought as he goes back to the table smiling widely to finish his food as requested by her which he cant ignore not now atleast.

 

Now was that a success or a failure, was the thought running in Vicky’s mind as he saw all the happenings between his Bhai nd Bhabhi. He saw Geet bossing over Maan nd forcefully making him eat just like they had expected nd then Maan feeding Geet nd with the look on her face Vicky was sure that she’s melting nd why not after all Maan was feeding him so tenderly nd lovingly but then she backed out nd was again back to her normal self nd when Maan tried to say something then she again made an excuse nd left from there on the pretext of making tea for Dadimaa but not before requesting him to finish all his food. Nd now Maan is smiling even after seeing that this plan of theirs oops Maan’s also failed. So what exactly should he consider about the status of this plan? Is it a success because as expected Geet herself came with food nd didn’t budge until Maan had it which shows how much Maan matters to him for which she was ready to leave her insecurities nd fears for a while or is it a failure because once again Maan was not able to apologize as Geet didn’t let him complete his sentence nd left from study but still Maan is smiling may be because Geet had requested him to finish the food before going back to work. Well it’s really complicated at tymes to understand something which shows two different things at the same tym, Vicky thought as he scratched his head confusingly before taking out his diary once again to make a new entry after cancelling the previous one while sighing heavily

 

Plan B: Make your wife’s care nd concern for you as your weapon when stuck up in such kind of situations.

Status: Complicated

Conclusion: Sometimes it’s difficult for you to understand the language between a husband nd wife as they speak to each other in their own languages which is alien to others. So its better you should leave it to them for a tym being nd don’t make yourself crazy to know what actually happened

 

Score:

 

Maan Bhai: 1 or may be 0 or may be 2 don’t know exactly

Geet Bhabhi: 2 (I guess still not sure)

 

“Main Joru ka Ghulam, Arey Ban ke rahunga” Vicky sing out loud on the plight of his elder brother as he made his way towards the study still not knowing whether to console his brother for the failure of the plan or to congratulate him for the success of plan to some extent.

 

“Bhai why are you getting so much tense? Have patience we’ll definitely be successful atleast once” Vicky said in order to calm down his hyper brother who was pacing like a hungry lion in Vicky’s room giving an intimidating look to him as he tries to calm him making Vicky to gulp his saliva.

 

“Patience? From past 6 days Geet is not talking to me forget about talking she’s not even looking at me infact she’s sleeping in Annie’s room at night from past 3 days on the pretext of helping her in her project nd you are asking me to have patience right? Wow!” Maan said sarcastically as he throws his hand in air while Vicky just stood over there listening to the scolding of his elder brother like a school kid who use to listen scoldings of his teacher

 

“That day to you were boasting so much that “Bhai don’t worry Vicky the Love-Guru is here. Geet Bhabhi won’t be able to remain angry for long. Nd blah blah blah” Now what happen Mr. Love Guru? Are all your ideas are out dated that they are not showing their effects or is it Geet who is made up of from some different minerals that your ideas are not showing their effect” Maan said sarcastically as he shakes his head in disbelief.

 

“Bhai you are saying as if your plans had showed their effect on Bhabhi.” Vicky said meekly only to get an angry glare from Maan making Vicky to shut his mouth instantly

 

“Ya I agree that even my plans too didn’t show any effect on her but atleast she had gave some reaction to it. just like that day in the study she forcefully made me eat the whole food though she didn’t said anything nd even that day when I had decorated whole room with flowers nd teddies though it was all filmy nd I hate such stuffs but whatever it was atleast it brought smile on Geet’s face which was not there from so long or 2 days back when I was continuously sending chocolates nd candies to her through parcel along with the sorry card through parcel which was again very filmy but I know that Geet like such stuffs even that day I saw her smiling throughout though I know that at tymes she did get irritated when Savera nd Annie were teasing her but still I could see that blush nd smile on her face which clearly indicates that she likes it all. Nd wat about your ideas they all just went in vain without showing any effect except getting another entry in your diary ” Maan said as he reminisce the happenings of past few days while Vicky just looked at him mum.

 

“But Bhai what’s the use at the end result was same only Na nd i.e. Geet Bhabhi still didn’t talk to you or letting you to apologize.” Vicky said slowly feeling sad at the plight of his elder younger while Maan sighed heavily as he sat on the couch beside him. It’s true that from past few days Maan had approached all those ways which he don’t even dreamt of approaching.

 

He can’t believe it that he the great Maan Singh Khurana has taken help of those filmy stuffs but to pacify Geet he can go to any extent especially when mistake is his only. He knows Geet likes all those typical Lovey Dovey stuffs that were shown in typical Bollywood movies nd he had done almost all of that, be it sending flowers or teddies or chocolates, or decorating whole room along with sorry cards nd what not except he didn’t sang any song for her. C’mon it would be too much for him. He had lost even the number of counts what all he had done which was out of his way to bring her back to normal but nothing worked. Ya they showed their effect on her a bit like Geet smiled whole heartedly or had even blushed too due to the teasing but it seems that, that night is etched in Geet’s mind permanently as whenever he thinks that he was close to his success that night out of nowhere flashed back in his mind nd then everything went back to square one nd at the end what all he could get is failure.

 

He had even pretended himself to be sick too so that Geet could take care of him nd he could get sometym to talk to her but to his luck even that didn’t worked nd he had to sleep whole day in order to take rest as his wife had literally threaten him to do so though not quiet verbally but her eyes were enough to express her words nd cherry on top this tym she had Dadimaa also with her who had forcefully made him rest whole day nd thus his this chance of talking to Geet also failed. God knows how many more days nd how many more ways will it take to rectify his deed nd make everything normal like before, he thought as he sighed heavily holding his head between his hands

 

“Relax Bhai everything will be fine soon.” He heard Vicky’s voice which was laced in pure concern as he puts his hand on his shoulder to comfort him.

 

“I had really bothered you a lot isn’t it nd if that was not enough then you had to bear my scoldings too.” Maan said as he looked at Vicky smiling sweetly at the concerned behaviour of his brother.

 

“C’mon Bhai you know its nothing like that. infact I am happy that like this I am able to spend sometym with my brother who is always busy in his work nd in the amidst of that if I am able to help you even a tiny bit that I think all my logics nd ideas on Love are worth.” Vicky said with a cheeky smile nd Maan just shakes his head.

 

“I just wish I could make everything back to normal soon.” Maan said as he sighed deeply

 

“You’ll Bhai just have patience. Everything will be fine soon.” Vicky said as he pats Maan’s shoulder in a comforting way

 

“Bachna Ae Haseeno�.Lo Mein Aa Gaya” Both heard the loud shrill of Message tone of Vicky’s cellphone before Maan could say anything nd Vicky looked at Maan smiling sheepishly as he saw Maan watching him in disbelief. He just muttered a quick excuse me before checking the message nd Maan just leaned his head back on the couch closing his eyes but next moment he instantly opens his eyes as something dawn upon him.

 

“O No Bhai! Why I didn’t think of it before?” He heard Vicky exclaiming in surprise. Guess that same realization upon him too.

 

“Yes why I didn’t think of it before.” Maan said as he ran his hand through his hair in disbelief.

 

“How could I miss this important fact?” Vicky said once again as he got up from the couch in surprise

 

“Ya that’s what I am wondering how could I miss such an important fact.” Maan said standing whacking himself mentally for his foolishness.

 

“How can you be so dumb Vicky?”

 

“How can I be so dumb?” Maan said groaning in frustration

 

“Yes Bhai can you imagine that xyz company had launched their new Play station nd I am still having its older model.”

 

“Ya right Vicky woh play station���.” Wait! What Did he just said? Maan thought as he registered what Vicky had just said

 

“Play Station? Till now you were talking about Play Station?” Maan asked in disbelief guessing he may have heard wrong.

 

“Yes Bhai Play station. Can you believe it me the Great Vikrant Singh Khurana a.k.a Vicky who always keeps track of latest gadgets nd play stations didn’t knew that the new model is already in market. Shame on me!!! Thank god Kunal texted me or else I would still be unaware about it.” Vicky said as he shakes his head in disbelief unknown of the anger building up in his brother

 

“Shut Up Vicky!!! Here we are not able to find any solution to bring Geet back to normal nd here you are worrying for that god damn Play Station. I just can’t believe it that at this age when soon you are going to handle responsibilities of KC; you are worrying about latest model of play Station.” Maan roared in anger nd Vicky instantly shuts up his mouth knowing very well that it’s dangerous to say a word more now.

 

“But Bhai aren’t you talking about it too?” He asked nervously fearing for the outburst of his brother

 

“Damn it! I was not talking about that silly Play Station. I was talking about Ranbir Kapoor.” Maan said as he slumped back on couch nd Vicky frowned in confusion.

 

“Ranbir Kapoor? I agree that my play station was nowhere related to the current situation but then how come Ranbir Kapoor is related to it?” Vicky asked confusingly as he sat beside Maan.

 

“Yes he’s related in every way. Don’t you remember that Ranbir Kapoor is Geet’s favourite infact she’s die-hard fan of Ranbir Kapoor. There’s endless list of the craziest acts that Geet had done for Ranbir Kapoor. You wont believe it she had watched Ranbir Kapoor’s movie whole night nd next day was her exam. If I would sit nd tell about her acts then even a day would be less. I don’t understand what so special in that creepy actor that Geet is so crazy for him” Maan said as he remind each nd every incident that Sameera has told him nd that he himself witnessed but Vicky didn’t missed the tinge of jealousy in Maan’s voice when he was narrating everything to him.

 

“So you are planning to bring Ranbir Kapoor to manofy Bhabhi? Waise its not a bad idea actually since Bhabhi is so much fond of Ranbir Kapoor then I am sure she’ll definitely forgive you after listening to him but Bhai I am afraid that what if seeing Ranbir Kapoor Bhabhi forgot each nd every thing or just gets lost in his charms nd good looks may be she can forget even YOU.” Vicky rubbed Maan’s jealous side more as he made the world’s most innocent face while smirking from inside nd Maan was just burning in anger listening to what Vicky is saying.

 

“Just Shut up Vicky. Try to speak something sensible for a change all right. I am not planning anything of such sort ok. If I could I won’t even see his face. Creepy Casanova. Nd anyways if Geet would see him also Na then also she wont di anything of that sort what you are saying. Ya she likes him but it won’t be like she’ll forget ME in front of him so don’t fly so high.” Maan said annoyingly while Vicky was finding it hard to stop his laughter

 

“Ok ok I take my words back. Anyways tell me what had you thought then if not bringing Ranbir Kapoor.” Vicky said quickly changing the topic

 

“Ranbir Kapoor can’t come but we can go to him right? Vicky is there any movie of Ranbir Kapoor released recently?” Maan said being thoughtful.

 

“Ya woh “Rockstar” has released 5 days back.”

 

“Great so I’ll take Geet with me to watch Rockstar nd I know Geet wont be able to refuse as its Ranbir Kapoor movie nd there I’ll apologize to her nd she wont be able to run away also.” Maan said as he smiled widely on his perfect plan.

 

“Wow Bhai you are great. I’ll just arrange the tickets. By the way how many of us are there; me, Annie, Savy, Dev Bhai��..”

 

“Wait! Wait! Wait! Don’t tell me that you are planning to make whole family accompany us?” Maan interrupted in between as he looked at Vicky in disbelief.

 

“Bhai! Won’t you take us with you? Afterall we too wanted to spend sometym with you. I know you are married now nd only Bhabhi had right on your tym but what about us? Aren’t we your siblings? Can’t we go to movie with our elder brother? Have we become strangers to you? I’ve been helping you in your mission nd you are denying me to accompany you. It really hurted Bhai.” Vicky said as he wiped away hos fake or should i say invisible tears from the corner of his eyes making a sad face faking hurt while Maan just rolled over his eyes on his “Nautanki”

 

“Fine you all will go with us now stop your mellow drama. Waise its gud also if you all will come with us. Geet won’t get suspicious about my Plan. Now arrange the tickets fast nd let me know when you do that.” Maan said as he gets up from the couch nd turned to leave.

 

“Don’t worry Bhai. I’ll arrange everything nd especially will arrange corner seat for you both after all you will be needing it. You know what I mean?” Vicky said as he winked at Maan who just looked away feeling embarrassed nd left the room before Vicky could tease him more.

 

“Bhai Pyar to aap karte ho Bhabhi se bas you are not accepting it to yourself. No worries Vicky the Love Guru is here then why to fear. Lets this mission gets complete first then I’ll head to my second “Secret Mission” i.e. to make you accept your feelings for Bhabhi. Wow! Savera would be so proud of me.” Vicky muttered as he patted his back before going to do arrangements for Tickets.

 

***************************************************

 

“Movie nd you? Dev Bhai can you please pinch me. I mean did I heard right? Did Maan Bhai just ask all of us for a movie?” Annie said unbelievingly as she looked at Maan as if he had grown two heads while Maan just rolled over his eyes

 

“Bro you seriously asking us for movie. I mean ‘movie’ nd that too you. You never liked to see these movie nd all” Dev asked in equal disbelief not understanding whether he was dreaming or is it reality. Maan nd movies were like two opposite ends which can never meet no matter what nd here he’s not only going to movie but also asking everyone to accompany.

 

“I don’t understand why you all are making fuss of such a simple thing. I mean ya its true that I don’t watch movies bit that doesn’t mean that I don’t like them. Its been long when we all had gone somewhere together so I thought why not movie nd then later we all will have dinner outside nd ya not to forget shopping for you girls is also there.” Maan said as a matter of fact as he shrugged his shoulders but Annie, Dev nd Savera were still not able to believe what they were hearing nd Vicky was just sitting over there coolly playing game on his mobile while Savitri Devi just smiled while shaking her head seeing the interaction between her grandchildren

 

“Bhai I am not going with you because I know what kind of movie you are going to watch. Either it would be some kind of documentary or any English action movie. Sorry I am not interested.” Annie said non interestingly as she turned to leave

 

“And what if I say that it’s a Bollywood Masala movie nd the actor is none other then “Ranbir Kapoor”. Then?” she heard Maan’s voice nd instantly turned back nd looked at him in disbelief only to find him smirking while raising his brows.

 

“RANBIR KAPOOR!!!!!!” all the guys closed their ears as they heard Annie nd Savera squealing loud in happiness nd excitement

 

“Bhai why didn’t you tell me before that you are taking us to see “Rockstar”. Arey I was planning from so many days to se it. O Bhai! You are the best. Wait! Let me call Geet also. She’ll jump in happiness when she’ll listen that we are going to see Ranbir Kapoor’s movie.” Annie said excitedly jumping like a kid as she called out for Geet while Maan just stood there smiling at the excitement of his little sister nd he was dyeing to see the same excitement on Geet’s face too as he looked towards the direction from where Geet is coming.

 

“What happen Annie? Why are you calling me like a maniac? Is everything ok?” Geet asked as she came into living room looking at Annie worriedly.

 

“Ya Geet everything is all right. You just go nd get ready fast. We don’t have much tym.” Annie said literally pushing Geet towards her room.

 

“But where are we going? Nd that too all of a sudden?” Geet asked confusingly as she looked at everyone.

 

“Geet tu na questions bahut poochti hai. Anyways to inform you we all are going for a movie nd guess what whose movie. RANBIR KAPOOR’s” Annie said with her eyes making wide nd Geet just opened her mouth in happiness.

 

“Ranbir Kapoor? You mean “Rockstar.” You are saying true na. Dekh I don’t like jokes in such matters.” Geet asked excitedly while smiling widely nd Maan just closed his eyes in contentment seeing her smile nd happy after so long.

 

“Yes Geet Maan Bhai is taking us to see Rockstar. Can you believe it? Maan Bhai nd movie? Nd you know after that we’ll go for shopping nd will have dinner too outside. Oh! It would be so much fun.” Annie keep on blabbering but smile on Geet’s face started diminishing as soon as she heard that Maan is taking everyone for movie.

 

She had seen change in Maan’s behaviour in past few days nd she really doesn’t understand why is he doing so. She knows it very well that Maan is not fond of movies nd especially these Bollywood movies then why is he doing so? She could see that he was trying to apologize to her for his behaviour but she really don’t want him to do that as she knows that he was not wrong. it was she who has forget her place in his lyf nd that’s the reason she has distanced herself from him but then him approaching her in all these ways which he don’t even like it was again bothering her. She don’t him to apologize like this neither did she want to be near him. He himself want this distance, isn’t it? Thatsy he had left for London like that nd even before that also whole month he had been indifferent with her then why is he doing all this when now she herself is keeping her distance with him, she thought as she looked at Maan who was looking at her expectantly nd she instantly lowered her gaze. It’s not in her to break his expectations but she cant go also with him because she knows that he’ll again try to apologize to him nd she cant see him like that. She had forget her place not her therefore he don’t need to apologize for it right, she thought as she tries to think of someway to escape from this situation.

 

“Geet, What are you thinking? Go get ready fast or else we’ll miss the show.” Annie’s voice broke the trail of her thoughts nd she looked at her

 

“Ummm Annie I completely forgot I had to go to meet Badi Maa nd Bade Papa today. Infact I was going to get ready for that only when you called me. Sorry I can’t come with you all.” Geet said as she looked at Annie hiding herself from Maan for she knew that he’ll easily catch her lie but least she knows that Maan had already caught it.

 

“C’mon Geet don’t talk rubbish. Its Ranbir Kapoor’s movie nd you are not going to watch it? Yaar you can go tomorrow also to meet uncle nd Aunty. Today you are coming with us nd that’s final. Now go nd get ready.” Savera said as she tries to push Geet towards her room

 

“Savera is right Geet Bete. You can go tomorrow to meet Arnav nd Madhu. Go to movie today Afterall it’s your favourite actor’s movie. You can’t miss it right.” Dadimaa said in order to convince her nd Maan thanked her silently through his eyes for the help to which she just smiled faintly.

 

“Dadimaa I could have gone tomorrow also for but Bade Papa had specially called me today morning nd ask me to meet him as he was missing me badly. It’s been long since I had met him nd Badi Maa so I said that I am coming today. If I would have known about this plan earlier then I shouldn’t have told them that I’ll come today. Now they must be waiting for me nd if I’ll not go then they may feel bad. I’ll watch this movie some other tym may be on DVD. Please Dadimaa.” Geet said rather pleadingly shutting everyone’s mouth as all knew what her Badi Maa nd Bade Papa mean for her therefore no one had any say after that including Dadimaa.

 

But maan knows that’s its just another excuse for not going with him as he talked to Madhu this morning only where he comes to know that Arnav had gone out of town for 2 days therefore there’s no chance that he can call Geet today morning to meet him when he himself was not here in the town. But he can’t blurt that even too becoz he don’t want anyone to know that Geet is lyieng nd trying to avoid him when she herself is trying her best to show there relationship normal in front of everyone. Maan looked at Geet painfully who just looked other side knowing very well that he had once again caught her lie but she can’t help it as she’s helpless in front of her heart

 

“Fine now when you had said this then I won’t stop you but you had to promise that you’ll go to shopping with me next week.” Annie said as she sighed in defeat nd Geet just nodded her head in affirmatively assuring that she’ll definitely go for shopping with her next week before heading towards her room but not before looking at Maan apologetically.

 

Plan K: Always keep track of your Wife’s Favourite Actor

Status: Failed (As usual)

Conclusion: Sometimes even Ranbir Kapoor cant help you.

 

Score:

 

Maan Bhai: Prefer not to say

Geet Bhabhi: As usual much more then Maan Bhai

 

Vicky closed his diary after writing the current status while sighing deeply looking at his Elder brother symphatatically not knowing when he’ll be finally able to manofy his wife

“Geet Bacchha tell me what happened? Why are you so lost today?” Madhu asked while gently caressing her hairs as Geet placed her head on her lap while Geet just stayed quiet feeling the soothing caress of her Badi Maa

 

Its been an hour since Geet had come to her house nd since the tym she has came Madhu is noticing that lost look on her face nd she instantly understood that there’s something which is bothering Geet. First of all her sudden visit like this then her lost face then her talking just minimal nd now laying in her lap like this. She may have not given her birth but she could recognize each nd every emotion of her daughter therefore she knew that Geet is sad nd hurt over something as whenever she’s sad or hurt or in some kind of turmoil she use to place her head like this only in her lap. Nd today if she had came like this all of a sudden nd laying in her lap like this then there must be something really big which she’s not able to express, she thought as she continuously caresses her hairs lovingly.

 

“Geet, Beta did something happened between you nd Maan?” Madhu spoke after a while nd Geet tilted her head upwards looking at her confusingly.

 

“Maan had called me half an hour back when you are in washroom. He wanted to know that whether you had reached home safely or not. Don’t know why he was sounding very low. Through him only I came to know that everyone had gone to see Rockstar. Nd my daughter came to meet me leaving Ranbir Kapoor’s movie indicates that all is not fine. Tell me Bacchha is there any problem between you both.” Madhu said caressing her face affectionally while Geet just moved her face back hiding her tears from her. she don’t know how is she going to tell her Badi Maa what all she’s facing from past months but she has to tell her right because she knows that Madhu wont drop the subject so easily.

 

“You know Badi Maa sometimes I feel that Sameera Di wouldn’t have gone anywhere. I wish that in that accident in place of Di it would be me then everyone’s lyf would be perfect. There wouldn’t be any kind of disturbance in anyone’s lyf. Neither your nd Bade Papa nor Maan’s. Waise Bhi my Maa nd Papa are with God then I would have also joined them but atleast Di’s lyf would have been saved nd no one had to bear the sadness of losing her. Everyone needed her You, Bade Papa, Maan, people at KM everyone while I was an orphan therefore no one would mourn for me for long.” Geet said all while crying silently while Madhu looked at her daughter shocked.

 

“Geet, What rubbish are you talking?” Madhu shrieked in horror as she make Geet moving away from her lap only to find her crying.

 

“Why you are saying like this Beta? Nd how can you say that your death wont cause any kind of sadness to us? You are as important for us as Sameera. We haven’t saw any difference between you nd Sameera then how can you think that if in that accident it was you in place of Sameera then our lyf would be perfect. Geet I may have not given you birth but my God knows that you are always my younger daughter then how can you even utter these words? Tell me beta did anyone had said anything to you. Before this you haven’t said anything of this sort. Tell me did Maan have said anything to you?” Madhu asked as she wiped Geet’s tears hugging her tightly

 

“Nahi Badi Maa he haven’t said anything to me.” Geet said between her sobs but Madhu knew that there’s something really big.

 

“Tell me everything Beta if you consider me your mother.” Madhu said authoratively nd Geet couldn’t hold back anymore nd she told her each nd every thing that she’s facing from past 2 months except the Vidyut’s part as she don’t want her to worry more.

 

“I am tired Badi Maa. I am tired from everything. I am tired from my heart who only beats for that person who can never be mine. I am tired of these emotions. I know I got agreed to this alliance even after knowing that I can never take Sameera Di’s place in his lyf but Badi Maa I failed in front of my heart nd didn’t even realize when I had fallen for him but Badi Maa still I haven’t expected anything from him but what all is happening from past 2 months nd especially that night when Maan had accused me is really getting unbearable for me now. Though from past few days I am seeing change in his behaviour, I could see that he’s trying to make everything normal between us. What does he think that I didn’t understand that he had faked his illness or had purposefully locked himself in the study or had made the mess in our room? I know everything but Badi Maa I am just not able to forget that night which only reminds me that I had no place in his lyf. it hurts me to see that he was effecting himself nd his health in order to seek my forgiveness but I am not able to forget anything Badi Maa, my heart fears to do anything for him lyk before. You only tell me Badi Maa what should I do? Is it my mistake that I love someone who can never love me back? Is it my mistake that things have been changed so drastically that everyone’s lyf has turned upside down? I really Love him a lot Badi Maa nd I don’t want him to do anymore compromise for this marriage but it really pains Badi Maa to see that the person I love is trying to distance himself from me, that he don’t have even this much trust on me that he had accused me for such thing.” Geet said as she cried bitterly in her mother’s arms nd Madhu just patted her back calming her down. She feared for this only from the start of this alliance thatsy she was not in favor of this marriage but when she saw changes in Maan nd Geet’s relationship she thought that may be her fears were baseless but today after listening to Geet’s turmoil she could understand what he daughter is going through form past months while she was unaware of all of it.

 

“Geet, look at me nd don’t cry” Madhu said as she pulled her out from hug wiping away her tears.

 

“Geet you know all this from start don’t you yet you got agreed for this alliance. I am not saying that it’s your mistake but you have to keep your patience beta. Yours nd Maan’s Marriage is not normal like other couples, it was different therefore such complications are bound to be happen Na. Ok let me tell you today a story; story of your mother. You know your Maa’s nd Papa’s marriage was also arranged unlike mine nd your Bade Papa’s. Mohinder was in love with someone else but she’s the daughter of Daarji’s rival therefore Daarji didn’t got ready for that alliance. Your father had tried very hard to convince him but all in vain nd in the end that girl committed suicide nd that incident had really affected Mohinder a lot. After few months Daarji had forcefully made him married to your other by faking his heart attack but Mohinder was never ready to move on with Rano nd he had cleared this thing to her in the first night itself. Rano was shattered to know this nd any girl would be whose husband tell her on the first night that he cant move on with her because he’s in love with someone else who is no more in the world. But you know what your mother didn’t accepted defeat. She keeps on loving him nd doing all her duties patiently without any expectations. Many tymes Mohinder use to yell at her or accused her baselessly nd I had seen Rano crying silently alone at some corner of the house for she was too hurt with his behaviour yet your mother never lose her patience nd keeps on loving him selflessly without expecting anything in return nd at last after whole one year of their Marriage Mohinder had finally reciprocated her love. Rano’s selfless love had broken all those walls that he had created around his heart. actually he had started falling for her long back but he was not able to accept this fact that he can love someone else apart from that girl therefore he use to behave like that but at the end he finally defeated in front of her Love nd had accepted that he’s irrecoverably in love with Rano nd the symbol of their Love is sitting here right in front of me.” Badi Maa said as she affectionally patted Geet’s cheek while she just looks at her unblinkingly.

 

“The journey from Mohinder’s hate to Love is not easy for Rano. May tymes she had broke down just like you. Many tymes she had thought to go away from his lyf for his own good but she cant nd you know why because she loves your father insanely nd therefore she patiently does each nd every thing without even expecting anything from him nd at the end it was her selfless love that had won nd not Mohinder’s ideologies. Geet, I had seen your mother’s reflection in you that day when you said to me that you don’t expect anything from Maan nd just wanted to do all those things that a wife suppose to do without any expectations. Therefore I was sure that one day you’ll definitely win Maan’s heart with your selfless love like Rano nd you know what you are succeeded in it also to great extent. I had seen love for you in Maan’s eyes. I cant misjudge any person Geet therefore I can say it with 100% surety that Maan loves you probably thatsy all that happened between you that night after the party but it was just he was not ready to accept it nd so he’s behaved so indifferently with you. But Geet you only said Na that he’s truly repenting for what he did then you have to give him a chance beta. he had gone out of his way in order to seek your forgiveness so now its your turn to consider about it.

 

I know it’s not easy for you after what he said to you but beta problems comes in every married couple’s lyf nd mine nd your Bade Papa’s too. But in your case the problem is bit complex because your marriage is not usual like others but you can’t accept defeat like this. You knew all this from start nd you had selflessly loved him nd performed all your duties as a wife. You have been strong all this while then why are you breaking down now. Win him with your Love beta nd I am sure that day is not far when Maan will himself confess that he loves you. I know at tymes it’ll get unbearable to you, I know lyk any other girls you too had some expectations, some dreams for your marriage but Geet when you had been patient all this while then just have little patience more nd trust me you’ll definitely get all the fruit of your selfless nd unconditional love. God tests those peoples only whom he knows is capable to qualify in his test nd here he’s testing your love nd you have to qualify in it. Just give him a chance nd do everything that you are doing till now patiently nd selflessly. If your mother can do this then even you can do this. Always remember Geet that when a girl loves someone truly then her love is her biggest strength therefore don’t make your love as your weakness. Try to know that why he behaved with you like this that night. It was not that he had behaved with you badly like this before then what happened that night that he didn’t even listen to you nd had accused you like this. You have to bring out Maan from the pool of his logics nd ideologies with your love nd trust me on this Geet that Maan needs just a chance nd only you can bring him out from Sameera’s memories nd make him move on with you. He loves you, it can be seen in his eyes Geet nd only you can make him realize his love for you.” Madhu completed looking expectantly at Geet who was lost in some thoughts. It’s true her nd her mother story is every much similar then can it be possible that what Madhu is saying is true. Can it be possible that Maan really loves her nd just not able to accept it? Everything seems to be so confusing to her nd she really needs to give a good thought to all this.

 

“I need sometym to think Badi Maa.” Geet said after a while with a deep sigh nd Madhu just gave an understanding nod.

 

“Take you tym beta. I am not asking you take any decision in haste nd always remember whatever decision you’ll take your family will always be with you.” Madhu said as she caresses her head lovingly nd Geet just hugged her Badi Maa like a small kid who needs his mother when he’s confused over something.

 

********************************************************

 

It was almost 8 pm when Geet had came back at KM only to find it all silent nd dark, guess no one had returned yet. It was then she remembers that everyone had planned for dinner outside nd so Dadimaa had also gone to join them. Means she’s all alone right now. To see its better that she’s alone as she really needs sometym to ponder over Badi Maa’s words, she thought as she took a deep sigh before heading towards her room. She was feeling much lighter after sharing her feelings with her Badi Maa that she had kept within herself from so many days but now as Badi Maa said she really needs to think over her words. She knows that Badi Maa is saying right, she had to be patient just like she was till now but will it be easy, she thought as she stepped inside her room only to find it all dark. Nd as she switched on the lights the sight that awaited her has really surprised her.

 

She saw whole room decorated with flowers but what caught her attention is the table at centre which was adorned by Gol Gappes along with different flavors of water nd chutneys. And as Geet saw her favourite Dish in front of her a wide smile crept on her face nd she forgot each nd every thing nd had literally ran towards the table nd started relishing mouth watering Gol Gappas. She don’t know who had brought it over here nd who had arranged it like this for her but she was really enjoying relishing it as it was her biggest weakness. At that moment she forgets everything that was bothering her from so many days nd was just feasting on her favourite dish. She was so lost in its taste that she didn’t even realize that someone is observing her each nd every move nd antics from behind with a contended smile on his face.

 

Maan was watching Geet while leaning on the door. Since the tym Geet had refused to see accompany them to the movie Maan was not at all in peace. He knows that he’s at fault nd he had really tried very hard in these 6 days to manofy her but everything went in vain even the thought of taking her to Ranbir Kapoor’s movie also didn’t worked nd so he was feeling totally helpless nd frustrated. His determination to bring Geet back to normal was slowly breaking yet he tried not to lose his patience but he was not sure till how long he was able to keep it intact. Though he was ion movie hall along with his siblings but he was not at all able to concentrate on what’s going on the screen nd hence he left the movie in mid asking Dev nd Vicky to take care of the girls while he had some important work to do nd came out from the place.

 

He ran a frustrated hand on his hairs as he found his each nd every idea getting flopped like this when he saw a Gol Gappa stall in front of him nd his lips curved into big smile as he finally got it what he had to do to make his wife happy nd smile. Therefore he came home early nd did each nd every arrangement by himself as he was determined to seek her forgiveness today itself nd he was sure that today anyhow Geet had to listen to him as today no one is at KM with whose excuse Geet could go away from him nd therefore he will make her listen to him nd tell her why he behaved like this with her nd he was sure that Geet will definitely understand if he’ll tell her the reason for his behaviour. There’s no shame in expressing his turmoil to his own wife, he thought as he checked each nd every arrangement last tym before going out from the room after switching off the light

 

So now here he is watching each nd every antic of his wife with a smile on his face. Her reaction was exactly the way he had expected nd he was really feeling contented seeing her si happy after so many days. He just shakes his head wen he saw her closing her eyes as she felt sour taste of water. The way her lips were moving nd pouting nd the way she was making sounds as she relished the Gol Gappas was really making hard for Maan to stand still nd look at her as he was once again found himself burning in some unknown desires for her but he makes sure that he just keeps his desires on check or else he wont be able to do what he wanted to. Therefore he just stood over there watching her while controlling himself hard.

 

It was after sometym when Geet felt her every fiber of body burning due to someone’s piercing gaze nd it finally dawned in Geet that who had done all this arrangements. She may have been unaware about all this but still she knows that it can be only Maan who can do all this. Because at the end of the day she can’t deny this fact that no matter what but he really cares for her a lot nd therefore only he can do all this to bring smile back on her face nd as the realization dawn upon her she instantly turned back to look at the door only to find Maan standing over there leaning against it looking at her smiling conforming all her thoughts.

 

As soon as Maan saw her turning nd looking towards him he instantly held his ears mouthing Sorry all the while looking at her expectantly. Geet don’t know what she should do now after seeing his gesture. In these 6 days he had not left a single chance to make her feel special nd she just wanted to run in his arms nd hides herself in them forever yet she couldn’t able to forget his words. She could see true remorse in his eyes yet she was unable to say to him that she had forgotten each nd every thing so he also forget all this. Nd Badi Maa’s words were just adding more fuel to her miseries. She was so confused with her own feelings, with her own turmoil nd now what Badi Maa had suggested. She can’t see him like this neither did she want to fail all his attempts but she can’t bring it in her to forget everything he had said. At one tym she wanted to run in his arms nd at the same tym his words stops her from doing so nd she was just not able to understand which way should she choose to get rid from all this restlessness nd turmoil. She really needs a good amount of tym to think where their relationship is leading, she thought as she looked back at Maan who was still holding his ears waiting for her to react. Unable to say anything she just left for washroom from there leaving Maan behind confused, hurt nd dumbfounded at her reaction.

BANG!!!!!!!!

 

The breaking sound of Wooden Planks echoed in the whole Gym as it became the victim of someone’s helplessness nd frustration. Maan was standing there with his bleeding hand looking at the broken pieces of wooden Plank just like all his hopes nd expectations that broke Everytym like this only. It’s been an hour since he was in Gym practicing his Vigorous Tai-chi but nothing was calming down his restless heart. He was vigorously throwing Punches nd kicks in the air since the tym he had stepped into gym but with every move Geet’s hurt face came in front of his eyes making him realize the intensity of his words that hurts her. All the muscles of his body were aching yet the pain that he was feeling in his heart right now was much more then the pain he was feeling in his body. his hand got injured nd was bleeding due to continuous breaking of Ice Slabs nd wooden planks but it was as if he was not feeling any pain for the pain he was feeling seeing Geet’s indifference was way too much to feel any other pain.

 

Geet’s indifference was now getting unbearable to him. To cry out loud it’s gonna be whole week but Geet didn’t talked to him forget about talking she’s completely avoiding him. No matter what he does, to which extent he goes but nothing seems to affect her. It was at this moment he realizes what Geet must have gone through when he was behaving so indifferent with her, when he had distanced himself from her, when he had gone to London for whole month without even informing her. She too must have felt same what he is feeling right now.  He’s not able to take her indifference for just one week nd here he had been indifferent with him for whole 2 months. She too must have been feeling miserable yet she didn’t complaint once.

 

He’s not unaware of the fact that she had waited for him every night to come home early so that she could talk to him nd how purposely he came late at night only to find her sleeping on couch while waiting for him. Even during his visit to London she use to wait for his one phone call but he like always turned down all her expectations. Then why he’s feeling bad if Geet is also doing the same with him. Didn’t he deserve it? Ofcourse he did nd Geet had full right also to do this to him. But he just wanted her to talk to him once. He just wanted to tell her that what led him to behave like this with her that night nd after that whatever punishment she’ll give he’s ready to take. But Geet was not giving him that chance also. just like now how excited she was after seeing Gol Gappas but when she saw him her face once again become gloomy nd she once again left from there leaving him behind hurt nd shattered. He had done everything that he can in order to bring her back to normal but nothing seems to work nd he really had no clue now what else should he do to make everything normal, he thought as he keeps on punching, kicking nd breaking the planks until his legs gave up nd he fell on the floor nd a loud howl escaped from his throat reflecting his agony that he was facing right now. Finally after what seems like an eternity he was able to pull up his tired body dragged his legs outside the gym towards his room hoping Geet wouldn’t be there to witness his worn out condition

 

*********************************************************

 

“Maan” he heard a familiar voice from behind nd as he turned to look, he found Vidyut standing over there looking at him confusingly. He instantly turned his back towards him not wanting any kind of encounter with him after him seeing his this state but guess it was too late

 

“What happen to you? Nd how did you got injured?” Vidyut asked as he came nd stand beside him looking at his bleeding hand.

 

“Nothing just got hurt while exercising. Nothing to worry, its usual” Maan replied coldly clearly indicating that he don’t want any kind of conversation right now.

 

“Look Maan, I know you since childhood therefore don’t even think of saying lie to me. I know you get hurt like this when you vigorously take out your anger or frustration on those wooden planks.” Vidyut said sternly nd Maan just looked other side feeling caught.

 

“I know Maan what you have been going through from past few days. I mean the way Geet is behaving is really very much hurting. But you hurting yourself for that is not at all acceptable. Maan I am your friend therefore I am concerned for you nd therefore I am saying you that don’t run after her like this.” Vidyut said as a matter of fact nd Maan snapped up his head looking at him questioningly.

 

“I mean to say that let her be the way she wants for sometym. After all how long you’ll run after her like this. You may be not understanding that she’s just taking you for granted because she knows that no matter what but you’ll come behind her. Here you are hurting yourself like this nd there does she even care? I don’t think so because if she cares then she should have given you a chance to speak but no she didn’t. Look Maan Geet is my friend too no doubt but you are my best friend therefore I am more concerned about you. Please for god sake stop hurting yourself like this nd just leave her in her own condition for sometym. I mean you too had your self-respect. She’ll come after you when she’ll realize your worth but if you keep on running behind her like this then she’ll definitely never understand your worth. You understand what I am saying.” Vidyut said putting a comforting hand on his shoulder showing his concern or should I say Fake concern for him to which Maan just smiled slyly nd removed his hand from her shoulder.

 

“Thank you Vidyut for being so concerned for me but Vidyut I think you are not able to understand Geet till now. The thing which you are considering her attitude is actually her hurt whose source is none other than me. It was me who didn’t trust her, who didn’t let her say what she wanted to say so it’ll be only who’ll bear the aftermath of it. She had full right to behave with me like this not only because I had hurted her but because she’s my wife nd as a wife she had full right to behave with me the way she want. I know from past few days I am disturbed due to her indifference but even in her indifference she didn’t failed to care for me. You know she may not show but her care, her concern oozes out in every act of hers no matter how hard she tries to be indifferent with me yet she never fails to make sure that I am all fine nd not playing with my health. Therefore your saying this that she don’t even care what I am going through is not at all correct. She’s very much hurt thatsy she’s behaving like this but I know that soon everything will be normal.” Maan said patting his shoulder while smiling faintly while Vidyut looked at him speechless.

 

“Look Vidyut I know as a friend you are concern for me nd its actually a good thing nd I am really thankful to you for that but yaar there are few matters which are between husband nd wife only so better let them only sort out this. Whatever issues me nd Geet are having we’ll sort it out sooner or later. You don’t get worry for it unnecessarily. I’ll definitely seek your help if I feel that I am not able to sort it out alone but till then let me handle all this alone nd you just relax ok.” Maan said smiling though genuinely but unknowingly like Geet he too had shown Vidyut his actual place to which Vidyut just nodded in affirmation nd Maan left from there to his room leaving Vidyut behind gritting his teeth on the failure of his yet another move.

 

He thought that he’ll take advantage of Maan’s vulnerable condition in creating distance between Maan nd Geet as he knows it very well that Maan’s ego is his everything nd therefore he had purposely rubbed that side but what Maan has said had really made him speechless. He really don’t understand that what kind of relationship are they having which is not normal like other married couples yet they cant hear a word against each other. No matter how hard he tries o separate them but Everytym he just gets is failure. Probably he had forget one thing that he’s not bigger then God nd god had already decided the fate of Maan nd Geet which is to be with each other. But it seems that Vidyut is not able to understand this universal fact till now hence he still didn’t accepted his defeat yet

 

“No matter how much I try to separate them yet they always come close to each other. Both are hurted due to each other yet they cant hear a word against each other. But I had also not accepted my defeat yet. No matter if my this move fails too but Maan sooner or later I’ll take Geet away from you nd she’ll be mine only mine.” Vidyut muttered under his breath as he looked at Maan’s retreating figure until he disappeared from his eyes nd left from there

 

*********************************************************

 

Geet was folding clothes in her room but her mind was somewhere else. Again nd again the flash of Maan’s hurt face was coming in front of her eyes making her feeling guilty for her behaviour. She can’t deny the fact that in these past 6 days maan had done everything that he can do even the things that he may not even dream to do be it sending flowers or chocolates to her or arranging Gol Gappas for her yet she is not able to bring it in her to forget everything. But isn’t she’s dragging the matter too much now, she thought as she sat on the bed absent mindedly. She remembered what her Badi Maa has said regarding her mother nd hers nd Maan’s relationship. Her mother too had faced almost the same thing but still she hasn’t lost her patience then why is she shunning herself around him. She could see true remorse in Maan’s eyes nd may be she had forgiven him also for that night but his words were still haunting her.

 

She’s trying really hard to forget everything especially after her conversation with Madhu she knows that she needs to keep her patience. She knew it from start that the journey of their marriage will not be smooth like other couples yet she agreed to it even when she has been given a chance by everyone including Maan to back out from this marriage still she agreed. Probably at that moment she didn’t knew that she’ll fell irrecoverably in love with him nd his words were hurt her like this. But whatever she really needs to sort it out soon. She can’t see Maan like this. She can’t see his hopes nd expectations being crushed like this Everytym. She needs to talk to him nd tell him that she needs sometym to forget what happened between them that night nd she is sure that he’ll understand nd will give her some space. If nothing then atleast he won’t be get hurted more due to her cold behaviour, she thought with a deep sigh nd get up from the bed to go towards cupboard when she saw Maan entering in the room but the sight she saw is enough to take her life away.

 

She saw his worn out condition nd tired form but what caught her attention was his injured hand which was bleeding nd she knows that reason behind this. he had once again practiced his intense tai-chi nd hurted himself in the process, she thought as she looked at Maan painfully who seems to be lost in some other world nd her heart went out for him realizing that she’s responsible for this condition of his. And as the realization dawn upon her she rushed to her lyf immediately leaving all her thoughts, fears nd insecurities behind

 

“Maan” she shrieked in horror as soon as she reached near him breaking Maan’s reverie nd it was then he realized Geet’s presence near him.

 

“Yeh… How did this happen?” she asked as she took his injured hand in hers examining the wound but Maan immediately freed his hand away looking other side. Last thing he wants is to Geet witness his condition as he really don’t want her to hurt more due to him.

 

“Nothing. I am fine.” He said though normally but Geet could sense his pain.

 

“Nothing huh? Your hand is bleeding nd you are saying nothing.” She asked as she looked at him with her teary eyes.

 

“Come with me.” she said as sternly as she could, dragging him with her but he stood over there unmoved.

 

“Didn’t you hear what I said? Come with me NOW!!!!” she said authoratively looking at him angrily dragging him nd this tym Maan just quietly followed her like an obedient kid

 

“Sit here till I come nd dare you move away from here.” Geet said as she made him sit on the bed before leaving to get the first aid Kit from the cupboard leaving Maan behind looking at her retreating figure

 

In no tym she was back once again with first aid box nd took his hand in hers after taking out cotton from the box. Her eyes welled up seeing his blood as she slowly wipes it away from his palm with cotton. All the while Maan was just looking at her adoringly seeing her cleaning his wound with utmost care. She was so gentle as if his hand is a feather nd she would hurt it if she won’t be gentle. He could see her eyes welling up in tears nd he knew the reason behind this also. His wound had always pained her more nd that he first witnessed at the tym when they were making their dinner that night in the kitchen where he had accidently cut his finger nd she had taken care of him in the same way. Though this tym he didn’t did this purposefully but he was happy to inure himself as it was helping in breaking that shell that Geet had built around herself. Therefore he just sat keeps on looking at her smiling as she gently take care of his wound. Nd he actually liked the way she was caring for him. All the while she didn’t looked up at him yet he could see her pained face as if it was she who got hurt. Maan hissed in pain as Geet puts tincture in his wound making her to shiver in pain

 

“Sorry, Bahut Dard ho raha hai.” she asked innocently as she looked up at him with her teary hazels to which Maan just nodded in no while smiling slightly nd she once again resumed her work.

 

Geet gently blowed air on his wound as she puts tincture on it so that he wont feel the burning session of it but least she knows that Maan was not feeling anything at all for all his senses was busy admiring her nd her care for him. He didn’t miss the restlessness in her eyes which he knew was for him, just for him. He noticed the drop of tear that fell from her eye when she bandaged his wound nd he slowly cradled her face wiping away that lone tear softly with his thumb. Geet looked at him with her teary hazels nd he just nodded in no gesturing “don’t cry” with a soft smile playing on his lips nd Geet immediately looked away after bandaging his wound as she realized her proximity with him.

 

“Geet Pls stay.” Maan rather pleaded as he holds her hand stopping her form going nd Geet was emotionally too weak to resist especially after listening to his pleading therefore she just stood over there still.

 

“Why Geet? Why you care for me so much if you are angry from me? I had hurted you a lot Na then you should have hated me then why are you crying for me on my small wound? Why you didn’t left me on my own condition?” Maan asked as he came close to her from behind while turning her from her shoulders so that she could face him while Geet just dipped her head low.

 

How would she tell him that his smallest wound affects her because she loves him insanely? How would she tell him that she was never angry on him it was her fears nd insecurities which was not letting her forget everything. How would she say to him that she can never hate him even if he takes away her lyf also yet she could never see him in any kind of bad condition? She wanted to say all this to him but could say nothing rather then standing over there quiet wishing that he could understand her unsaid words like always but least she knows that her quietness is just increasing Maan’s restlessness

 

“Please Geet for god sake say something. I had hurted you a lot na then complain me, yell at me, shout at me, hit me, take out your anger your hurt on me, give me any punishment Geet but please don’t remain indifferent like this with me. Please I know I did a big mistake while accusing you, I know I was a jerk when I said those mean words to you which had hurted you like this nd Geet you are free to give me any punishment for that but please don’t distance yourself from me like this. I am not able to bear it Geet I am not. Please speak to me once; Take out what all is there in your heart once. I promise I won’t say anything to you but please don’t remain aloof like this with me. Your cold self is getting unbearable to me Geet please don’t do this to me nd especially to yourself. This is not you Geet, please don’t be like this. Please speak to me once just once. Please.” Maan literally pleaded as he cupped her face in his hands nd tears started to flow from Geet’s eyes as she looked at his pleading eyes which was urging her to speak but words were not forming in her throat to tell him what she was feeling right now. She can’t see him like this yet she was unable to comfort him as she still don’t know whether she had this right on him or not.

 

“It’s getting late Maan nd you must be tired. You need to take rest.” Geet said after a while as she removed his hand from her face with a deep sigh before turning to leave leaving Maan bewildered.

 

But this tym Maan was not in mood to let go like this. He had enough of her running away from him like this from past 6 days but today she had to speak to him anyhow. She had to let out her bottled up emotions in front of him. today she had to take out her hurt on him because it was now unbearable for him to see her dyeing every second, to see her fighting with herself every second, to see the clouds of fear nd insecurities getting darker in her heart by every passing minute. Today either there will be this side or that, he thought as he holds her wrist halting her steps that was heading towards the door nd next moment Geet found herself pinned against the wall near the door with Maan’s body plastering on hers hence blocking her between the wall nd his hard body.

 

It was all so sudden that Geet didn’t realized for few minutes what was happening nd when she did she felt a chill ran down her spine as she realized their proximity nd if that was not enough then she saw Maan’s intense gaze boring into hers making her heart beat several beats. Its true that they had been close to each other before too but this type of proximity between them was new to her, never in their married life of 7 nd a half months Maan had been with her like this nd hence her heart was beating faster than usual as she realized that now there is no escape. Yet she didn’t accept defeat so easily as she tried to free herself but Maan just pressed himself more closer to her if possible blocking her sandwiching her between his hard body nd wall. Geet tried to push him away with her hands but Maan just held her hands tight nd pinned them in the wall stopping her struggle all the while looking at her hazels deep with his intimidating gaze.

 

“Please leave me Maan.” Geet said rather pleadingly with a weak attempt to get herself free.

 

“Not before you speak to me.” Maan said in a intimidate voice which was enough for Geet to shiver making her realize that he wont leave her until she’ll speak to him.

 

“I don’t want to say anything.” Geet retorted back knowing very well that she made a wrong move as she felt Maan’s grip tightened on her wrists.

 

“Enough of your denial Geet. Enough of your running away. But not now, today you have to speak to me. Tell me why you are so cold around me? Tell me why you are not cribbing to me like before? Tell me why there is so much distance between us? Tell me why there’s not everything normal between us like before? I know you too want to be everything like before then why are you running away from me like this? Why are you fighting with yourself like this? Tell me Geet. Answer me?” Maan asked as he bored his piercing gaze into hers feeling helpless with the turn of events forcing her to let out all that which she had bottled up inside her from past 2 months.

 

“Why you are asking me all this? Why don’t you ask yourself? You know everything Na, had answer of every question? Then why there’s need to ask me about anything? Why are you not getting your answers from you yourself only like you use to do Everytym?” Geet said in a hurt voice with a tinge of sarcasm in it nd Maan looked from her one eye to another in disbelief unknowingly loosening his grip on her wrists.

 

“Geet” This is what he was able to utter as he looked at her confused nd next moment Geet pushed him away from her making him stumble few steps back.

 

“Haan Tell me. You know everything Na even before a person tells you anything then why are you asking me? Had you asked me that day before when I was waiting for you outside KM that Geet why are you waiting over here like this instead of shouting at me for making you restless in my search? Had you asked me ever before taking out your frustration on me? Or had you asked me that night when you accused me for removing Di’s belonging nd her pictures from our room? Had you asked me before accusing me for taking Sameera Di’s place in your lyf nd heart? Boliye. Jawab dijiye mujhe.” The sudden change in her voice surprises Maan. There was no more pleading or shivering in it infact it was now full of Pain nd anger. He looked at her in surprise trying to figure out wat is she trying to say

 

“Batayiye Hai koi Jawab aapke paas? Today my distance, my indifference is getting unbearable to you when it has been just 6 days. Had you ever thought that how I must have felt when I had bear your distance, your indifference for whole 60 days when I don’t even know that what is my actual mistake. Had you ever thought how did I able to stop myself from breaking down in front of our family? No you haven’t thought once, you just did what you feel is right without realizing how will it affect me. Have you asked my opinion that day when we had’.. When we had came close to each other that night after the party? No you haven’t asked me but straightaway made your own assumption that you had committed a sin nd therefore you decided to punish ‘YOURSELF’ nd ‘ME’ by distancing yourself from me. Had you asked me that day when you had decided to go to London for an indefinite period so that you don’t have to bear my torturing presence even for few minutes? No you didn’t instead just left for London without even telling me once before going. Had you listened to me that day when I was trying to say that I didn’t removed Sameera Di’s pic from our room that I didn’t renovated our room? No, instead you accused me for taking Di’s place in your lyf. Then why all of a sudden is it necessary for you to ask me or listen to me or tell you my opinion on why I had distanced myself from you? Did you told me why you had distanced yourself from me or why had you accused me for the thing which you also know that I can’t commit even in my widest dream? No na, then why are you expecting me to tell you why I am distancing myself from you?” Tears started flowing from her eyes. The pain, the agony that she has been bottling up inside her from so long has finally burst out nd all Maan could do is to close his eyes in pain realizing what damage he had done to her without even thinking twice. He himself could feel the corner of his burning but he can’t do anything to sooth the fire of remorse inside him

 

“You know I was very happy that day when Dadimaa told me that you came back nd is in our room. I feel like I got my lyf back which was missing somewhere from past 2 months. I wanted to tell you so many things, I wanted to complain you for your sudden departure, I wanted to crib you for not calling me even once from London, I wanted to tell you that every second I missed you a lot, I wanted to warn you to not to leave me alone like this again. But you had not given me any chance to say anything but straightaway accused me for the renovation of the room. You know Na Maan that what Di nd her memories means to me yet you haven’t thought once before accusing me. Kyun Maan? Kya itna hi bharosa tha Aapko mujh pe? Ya phir Aapko kabhi muhpe trust tha hi nahi” Geet rather stated amidst her tears as she looked at Maan nd Maan instantly shaked his head in no gesturing she’s wrong, that he trusts her.

 

“You know after that night 2 months before I so much wanted to talk to you, to tell you not to feel guilty for anything as you didn’t did anything wrong, that you had full right on me nd each cell of my existence but you were too lost in your own assumptions that you didn’t even bother to listen to me. Here, on this couch only I use to sleep while waiting for you till late night nd I know that you purposefully come after I sleep nd when you are sure that I am fast asleep you carry me to the bed nd next morning you again leave before I use to awake. What have you thought that I didn’t knew that your secretary was just use to make excuse that you are not in office nd has gone for lunch meeting when I use to come with lunch for you or you thought that I believed your secretary then when I use to call you in London nd she use to say that you are busy in meeting. I was not a fool Maan, I could clearly see that you are avoiding me but you know why I didn’t said anything to you because I want to give you your space so that you can come out from your guilt which was actually baseless. I thought that when you’ll come back then I’ll tell you that for me this marriage means as same as it means to other married couples but you crushed all my hopes that day when you said that I wanted to take Di’s place in your lyf nd heart.” Geet said as she looked at him painfully nd Maan just stood over there numb. He didn’t have even single word to say to her or to comfort her instead listening to her accusations quietly.

 

“You know how much I craved to listen your voice just for once, how much I craved for that soothing touch or words of yours which use to make my restlessness vanish somewhere in the thin air when you were there in London but you never called me nd when you did you didn’t talked to me. Why Maan didn’t you remember me a bit. I know our marriage was a compromise to you nd I am nothing more then a responsibility for you but the care, the support I got from you in all these months had made me realize that this marriage means more then just a compromise to you nd I was happy that if not like normal husband nd wife then as a good friend we’ll always be together but I guess you didn’t even consider me even that also or else you could have told me the reason behind your aloofness around me. it was you only na Maan who had once said to me that I don’t need to bother if anyone compare me to Sameera Di or if anyone say to me that I had taken her place in your lyf because you trust me nd knows that it’s nothing like that then why did you yourself accused me for that. I had trusted you enough to know that whenever anyone will question our marriage or our relationship then you’ll be by my side telling that person that our relationship is far beyond compromise but then why you yourself has made me realize that our relationship was nothing but a compromise due to Sameera Di’s wish that now if anyone question our relationship then I don’t even know how to defend it yet I try my best to not to be weak just for the sake of our relationship because at the end of the day I cant see anyone saying anything to you. Then why you didn’t be strong enough to save whatever little relationship we are having from the conspiracy of those peoples who wanted to break our relationship? Boliye Na Maan kyun? You know today I don’t even know that whether I had this much right also to say all this things to you or not, that out ‘compromising relationship’ gives me this much right also or not to say anything or do anything for you. But you know everything na then Tell me Maan that am I having this right or is it I am crossing my limit because it’s not my right to say all this to you?” Geet said as she shaked his arm nd Maan shaked his head in denial telling her that she has all right to do or say anything as he tries to cup her face but Geet just pushed his hand away distancing herself from him.

 

“I know that I can’t take Di’s place in your lyf nor in your heart still you accused me for that but you only tell me that did I ever try to do that? Which act of mine had made you felt that I am trying to take Di’s place in your lyf? Did I ever ask you for my rights? Did I ever expect anything from you? No I haven’t nd you know why because I know how difficult it would be for you to move on nd I wanted to be your companion in your journey of life not your burden. But that day… That day you made me realize that I was only a burden for you all the while nd can never be your companion because if I could then atleast you could have given thought just once or had listen to me just once before accusing me for such thing or before distancing yourself from me like this. But no you didn’t even listen to me nd given your verdict that I am a culprit in your eyes; a biggest sinner. I had not asked you for anything Maan neither did I expected anything from you but ya I did wait for you in those 2 months so that I could bring our relationship back to normal, so that I could make you realize that whatever happen between us that night was not a sin nd I didn’t regret that moment between us, I never can because each second that I spend with you is the blissful second of my lyf nd that moment was the most blissful moment of my lyf, but thank you for telling me that I didn’t have the right to wait for you also. I had forget the reality of our relationship in the amidst of your care nd affection but thank you for reminding me the reality of our relationship now I wont forget what I actually mean to you.” Geet said breaking into sobs as she was about to thump on the floor on her knees when Maan instantly came nd hold her in her place nd raised his hand to wipe away her tears but Geet just pushed him away once again.

 

“It was my mistake. It was all my mistake since the start that I had forgotten my place, that I had thought that I could keep our marriage working without any expectations from you, that I would be able to take you out from your guilt of coming close to me. I was wrong in thinking that in all these months I had made not much but atleast some place in your heart, that you trust me enough to be my side whenever I need you but I didn’t knew Maan that you don’t even trust me enough to know that I cant do any think in my wildest dream that could hurt you or your feelings. Why Maan why can’t you trust me enough to know that I can never hurt you? Why can’t you think me worth enough to share your thoughts, your turmoil with me? Why can’t you think our marriage apart from being a compromise? Tell me Maan what difference the things I said to you now will bring in our ‘compromise relationship’? Will it bring remove that night from our lyf where you had accused me without even listening to me? Will it remove those 2 months of our lyf where I had craved for your just one look? Will it remove that restlessness, that craving, that aloofness which I had gone through when you had avoided me nd distanced yourself from me?

 

You are asking me to punish you Na, to shout at you, yell at you, crib to you, complain to you or anything to take out my hurt on you but before that please tell me that do I have this right also or not? Do I have right to boss over you when you ignore your health amidst your work? Do I have this right to hug you nd hide myself in your arms when I am restless on something? Do I have this right to do anything for you or to take you out from the world of your own logics nd assumptions? Tell me because I really don’t know what rights I have in our relationship. Nd since when I don’t know all this so its better if I stay away from you, if I distance myself from you just the way you did because I really cant bear any more accusations, any more harsh words from you. Yes I am insecure, yes I am scared because I don’t know what I can nd what I can’t do in our relationship. Tell me Maan what is the future of our relationship? Tell me what place I actually had in your lyf nd heart? Who I am actually to you; a companion or a burden of responsibility? Can you tell me this?

 

Why Maan Why had you been so caring to me all those months, why had you made me believe that no matter what but you’ll always be by my side, that I had to forget my place like this? Why Maan why had you accused me like that? Why had you distanced yourself from me like that? Why had you punished yourself nd me like that? Why you didn’t trust me Maan? you had said na that you can read my eyes, that my eyes are mirror of my soul then why you didn’t read my innocence in them Maan? Why you didn’t read that I had never regretted that moment between us, I never can instead I wanted to make you realize the same thing that you had not done anything wrong? Why you made everything so difficult for me Maan that now neither I can go near you nor I can stay far away from you? Why you made me nd my heart this much helpless Maan? Why? Why? Why?” She said nd broke down completely in tears making Maan burn in the fire of his deeds.

 

He can’t take this anymore. He can’t see her in this broken state especially when he knows dat it’s just because of him. He wiped away dat smile from her face which always took away his heart nd as the realization hits him he quickly held her by her shoulders nd hides her in his embrace. Geet hits her small fists on his chest continuously in order to free herself but Maan just held her tight in his embrace closing his eyes which was continuously dropping tears seeing her suffering due to him. In true sense it was today he realize the impact of his actions on her innocent heart which is now full of fears nd insecurities. It was not just his one accusation that had made her distance herself from him, it was all those small-small stupid acts of his which was correct according to him which were making her insecure nd his accusation was just the final blow to those insecurities that had made her aloof around him like this.

 

Geet’s strength finally drained out nd she stopped hitting him or her attempt of freeing herself nd just submitted herself in his arms crying bitterly because at the end his arms are her only solace. She don’t know what will happen after this or how Maan will react to her words. She didn’t even know what all she had said in her trance. All she knows that today she pour out all those questions which her heart was asking from past 2 months since he had been indifferent with her. She knows that probably today she had crossed her limits but it seems that everything went on their own accord nd she said all those things which she may not ever able to say to him. Maan felt her crying bitterly in his arms nd he just rubs her back to calm her down but at the same tym he knows that it won’t be easy. This is for the first tym she has said all this to him nd he knows that she’s right nd he deserves this. why it would be always him to question her or accuse her, she too had equal right to do question him nd today she had just showed her right nd nothing else nd he can never feel bad for that because he knows that she’s not wrong either.

 

“I am sorry Geet. I am so sorry. I know I have hurted you a lot nd I can do nothing to undo that but please try to forgive me” This is all Maan was able to whisper in her hairs as he hugged her close to him taking away all the pain given by him while Geet was hardly registering what he was saying.

 

He wanted to tell her so many things, he wanted her to know what he was feeling at that tym when he had uttered those words but at that tym he could do nothing rather than just hugging her close to his heart kissing her hairs softly in hope that she could understand that how much he’s burning from inside seeing this state of hers due to him. Yes he won’t deny the fact that somewhere he had taken her as for granted nd may be because of that only he had been so insensitive towards her but not anymore. now he wont commit the same mistake that he had committed once.

 

After what seems like an eternity Maan felt Geet’s crying subsiding guess all her energy has drained out but she was still sobbing in his arms. He gently pulled her out from hug still holding her close to him nd wiped away those tears from her eyes which was way too precious for him while Geet just looked at him lost with her teary hazels. Maan softly kissed her forehead nd next moment scooped her in his arms before heading away to their bed. All the while Geet was just looking at him lost not knowing what’s going in his mind. Whether he’s angry on her for saying all this to him or he’s hurt due to her words, she thought as she looked at Maan who was looking ahead as he took his steps towards their bed.

 

Maan’s condition was not less as he was not in the state to meet her eyes not now atleast. He wanted to tell her many things but seeing her condition he decided not to say anything now as she needs to be mentally relaxed before understanding his view nd right now she’s too much emotionally wrecked to understand anything. Therefore he just looked ahead without meeting his gaze with hers for he knows that for once he couldn’t read her eyes but she can always understand what he’s going through by seeing through his eyes nd right now he don’t want her to know how much he’s regretting nd feeling guilty for his stupid actions because knowing her he knew it very well that she’ll blame herself for making him feel guilty nd this is the last thing he wants. She had suffered enough due to him but not anymore. Therefore he keeps on looking ahead as he move towards heir bed nd gently places her down on bed before taking his seat beside her.

 

Maan don’t want to leave her alone at this moment as he knows that his slight distance will only increase her insecurities nd he don’t want that especially after listening to her turmoil therefore he just sat beside her resting his back on the bed post while still keeping her in his arms. Geet was emotionally too weak to resist or protest nd somewhere she’s scared also to lose his warmth. Then as if in trance she gently wrapped her arms around his waist hugging him tight nd laid her head on his chest as if she feared for her this dream to be broken if she’ll stay an inch away from him. Maan held her one hand with his as if assuring her his presence nd with other he gently caresses her head nd hairs to make her sleep nd soon she’s drifted into deep sleep under the soothing caress of the person who is her lyf. Maan felt her heavy breathings on his chest making him realize that she has finally drifted into deep sleep but still he didn’t placed her back on bed. For some reasons he just don’t want her to keep her away from him. He was fool all the while by distancing himself from her but now not anymore, now he won’t be able to stay away from her anymore. It was her distancing herself from him that made him realize how much empty he’s without her nd as the realization dawn upon him he realizes that this is the only tym when he gives all the answers of those questions that she had asked him today nd he’ll give it to her nd he was sure that she’ll understand him, he thought as he looked at her angelic face which was looking more beautiful while sleeping nd gently kissed her on top of her head before drifting into deep sleep.

 

************************************************************

 

Next morning when Geet woke up she found herself on the bed with the blanket tucking securely around her. It took her sometym to register the events of last nite nd as those images flashed in front of her eyes, her eyes instantly searched for Maan who was nowhere to be seen in the room. She clearly remembered what all she has said to Maan last night nd how he had carried her in his arms nd also that whole night she has slept in his arms only as she could feel her heart calm nd in peace then where is he now. Did he felt hurt of her words nd thatsy he’s not here when she had woken up? May be he’s angry on her or may be he’s feeling guilty to face her after listening to her accusations, she thought as she cursed herself for saying all that to him. Fear gripped her heart as she felt that he had once again left her alone to distance himself from him nd a lone tear escaped her eyes as she felt empty once again when her gaze falls paper on the side table which was calling out her attention. She instantly get down from bed to see what’s in it only to find it as a letter from Maan which he had written to her. Thousand butterflies started to run in her stomach as she opens the letter with her thudding heart to read its contents.

 

Geet,

 

I know when you’ll get up then first thing you’ll search is me nd when you’ll not find me around you then thousand thoughts will cross your mind nd you’ll again think that I am distancing myself from you once again nd I cant blame you also for that as you are not wring in your place. But Geet this tym the reason for my sudden departure is not because I want to avoid you; it is just that out Noida Construction site is facing some problems nd I had to go over there urgently as no one else can handle the matter. I wanted to tell you all this in person but seeing you sleeping so peacefully after god knows how long I don’t have courage to wake you up nd therefore I am leaving this letter for you so that you should know about the reason of my sudden departure.

 

Geet there’s something else also that I wanted to say to you nd not from today but from so many days but couldn’t nd last nite after seeing your breakdown I just cant able to say that but Geet now I don’t think that I’ll be able to keep this thing to myself anymore as this guilt of hurting you is eating me from within. Geet whatever is happening between us from past 2 months nd the way I behaved with you all that while has really hurted you a lot nd I know that just my mere sorry wont undo the blunders that I had done but still I am saying Sorry for all those restlessness, all that pain, all that agony from which you had gone through due to me nd my indifference nd if that was not enough then i had accused you for something which even I know that you cant commit in your wildest dream yet I did that nd I can never forgive myself for that.

 

But trust me Geet I haven’t done all that intentionally. I won’t lie Geet but from past few months infact since the early months of our marriage I am feeling an unknown attraction towards you. Something is binding me from you nd I feel like attracting towards you in the same way as moth is attracted towards flame. I am having those unknown desires towards you which I believed is sinful in our relationship but I had always kept them in check so that I wont hurt you in my uncontrollable desires. But that night after that moment transpired between us I feel like that I am cheating on both you nd Sameera. On you because I thought that I am coming close to you just because of physical attraction I am having towards you nd you are also surrendering yourself to me because you think that you are my wife nd it’s your duty to quench my desires. Nd on Sameera because I had claim to love her deeply nd promised her that I’ll never give her place to anyone else then how can I be get physically close to someone else, how can I feel all those things that I had felt once for Sameera for someone else nd that someone else is none other then her own sister who is married to me because of her Di’s last wish nd like me she too is trying to cope up with this change in our relationship. Nd that is the reason Geet I was feeling guilty for myself but more for hurting your feelings nd your trust which you had on me since the first night of our marriage nd thatsy I was not able to meet your gaze so I decided to stay away from you for a while so that I can keep my desires in check nd my this physical attraction for you also gets fade with the passing tym nd then we can again get back to our normal relationship.

 

But that didn’t happened Geet instead I started craving for you more. Your voice, your musical laughter, your innocent antics, your care, your bossing on me everything that you do for me had not let me rest in peace even for a second nd more I try to get over from it the more I feel like getting pulled towards you. I had left for London not because your presence was torturing me nd Even I was not happy to leave like this but I had to Geet. Because I thought that if I had to make everything normal between us den I need to stay away from you for sometym. I don’t want to betray you by giving you any false hopes for our relationship due to my uncontrollable desires when I had this belief that I can never give Sameera’s place to you. So I decided this distance between us but I didn’t knew that this same distance will be more torturing to me only nd I’ll crave to hear your voice just once.

 

That day when I had called you then only my heart knows how much helpless it was feeling to choose between this distance nd the craving to hear you once nd finally I had given up in front of my heart thinking that you wont recognize me if I’ll call you on landline but you proved me wrong when you recognize me even when I didn’t said anything. Trust me Geet I wanted to say so many things to you but just couldn’t instead of listening to your Khamoshi which was crying out loud that how much you are missing me. Sach poocho to at that moment only I realize that the thing that I am feeling for you is something far beyond just physical attraction nd I feared to say that I am falling for you as my mind nd heart were going in two different directions. Where my mind was accepting the fact that I had started falling for you, my mind was instantly denying it making me realize that I am betraying both you nd Sameera which is wrong.

 

This attraction, this turmoil was really taking toll on me nd making me insane Geet nd when I returned back nd saw the renovation of our room then the last strand of my same mind also blowed off nd I ended up in hurting you. At that moment I was too much burning in my own miseries to give everything a thought with my calm mind. I know I did a great mistake by accusing you like that without hearing you once but at that moment nothing was making sense to me. My turmoil, my frustration nd everything that I was going through since past 2 months nd what I saw that day had taken toll on me blocking all my senses to differentiate between right nd wrong. I had fund myself fighting a battle between my heart nd Mind yet again nd in daze I had chosen my mind over my heart which was always true in saying that Geet can never do such thing but I didn’t listen to it nd ended up in hurting you.

 

I know that the reasons I had gave you now are nowhere to be said as the justification of my behaviour towards you not after listening to what you had gone through but still I felt the need to tell you what I was feeling at that moment when I had hurted you. I know I did many mistakes not only by accusing but by being ignorant to your condition also, by somewhere taking you for granted, by not listening to your side once nd there are lots more mistakes of which the realization dawn upon me last nite only when I listened to you. I know that I can do nothing to undo my mistakes but Geet just give me one chance to rectify them. Just give me one chance to remove those fears nd insecurities which are instilled in your heart due to me.

 

Geet I know that our marriage was a compromise but Geet now I want to confess that our relationship had gone far beyond just a ‘compromise’. I wanted to confess that you are not a burden on me, you never were, you can only be my companion who I know will be there in my every good nd bad tym. I wanted to tell you that you had every right on me, you had right to care for me, to do all things for me, to boss over me, to be mad on me. I know my behaviour had hurted you a lot but Geet trust me I am regretting each nd every second for it. Our relationship is not a compromise Geet neither you are any kind of responsibility on me. I am sorry for making you feel like this. your smile, your tears, your innocent acts even your touches affects me Geet nd I wont deny the fact that you are becoming an integral part of my lyf nd even a second without you makes me feel empty. Please forgive me Geet for whatever I did nd give me chance to prove myself as a worthy husband just once.

 

Geet I won’t say that I am ready to move on with you because it’s really difficult for me to do so at present nd this you also know nd no one can understand me better than you but Geet I’ll try nd all I need is some tym nd some trust from you. Please Geet just give me sometym to accept everything, just give me sometym to accept that what my heart was saying to me is true, just give me some tym to accept that I am ready to move on so that I won’t hurt you once again. Please just forgive me for once. There’s no hurry or any kind of pressure on you. if by reading this letter you feel that you can give me that one chance, that sometym nd most precious your forgiveness then only forgive me or else I am ready to take nay punishment from you. But Geet I just want to say that don’t punish yourself by fighting with yourself like this, by staying aloof like this. Don’t do this to yourself because of my deeds because at the end you are way too precious for me nd I can’t see you in this state. you are an angel Geet nd you dont deserve to punish yourself due to my insensitivity… Please never do that. Geet i want to move forward in this relationship with you. i want you to be my side forever bas just need some tym to accept my feelings completely

 

If you think that you can forgive me then just give me one call or else I am ready to take any punishment you give except your indifference because I know that even you are not happy by distancing yourself from me. I’ll wait for your call to know what you had decide nd Geet do what your heart says. You are free to take any decision. Will wait for you

 

Maan.

 

Maan looked at his watch then back at his cellphone which was still lyieng lifelessly on the table ahead him. It’s been almost 2 hours since he is here stuck up in this construction site which was facing some disputes among manger nd labour regarding wages nd quality of materials being used nd Maan is trying his best to resolve the matter soon so that he can go back to his home nd most importantly to Geet to know what punishment she has decided for him or whether she had forgiven him also or not. But it seems that the matter is not going to resolve so soon nd he still had to stay over here for few more hours. He cursed his bad luck umpteenth tym for making him stuck up in this situation when he should be at home at this moment confessing his turmoil to his wife face to face nd not through letter.

 

He was in deep nd peaceful sleep when his cellphone has buzzed in the wee hours of morning thus disturbing his peaceful sleep nd his forehead crinkled in worry as he looked at the screen he found “Adi” flashing on it. He knows that Adi never disturbs him at this hour until nd unless there is something important nd therefore he gently disentangled himself from Geet who was cuddling up to him in sleep nd goes to another corner of room to talk to him. And as he came to know about the situation he just asked Adi to do all the arrangements of their departure before cutting the call nd going to washroom to get ready.

 

He was taking his watch from side table after getting all dressed up when his gaze falls on sleeping form of Geet who still looks so pale after her emotional breakdown. He sighed at his fate that always plays with him like this only. When he wanted to stay away from her then it always gives him this reason or that to bring him near her nd today when he don’t want to go anywhere leaving here then this problem had arise. If it was unavoidable then he wouldn’t have left like this but he was helpless right now nd could do nothing to avoid this problem. Therefore he just took a pen nd paper from the table nd wrote all that was there in his heart along with the reason of his sudden departure nd kept it under the note pad making sure that it grabs Geet’s attention as soon as she woke up.

 

 

“I’ll be back soon Geet for you just for you. Afterall I yet had to take my punishment from you. Wait for me” Maan said as he gently caressed her forehead before placing a soft kiss over there nd left from there but not before giving a last look to her promising silently that he’ll be back soon.

 

So now here he is waiting for this mess to clear up son so that he could go back to his wife who must be waiting eagerly for him. But damn this matter doesn’t seem to resolve so soon, he thought frustratingly as he once again looked at his cellphone hoping to be “Geet” name flashed on the screen but to his disappointment it was still lifeless like before.

 

“Geet ko mera letter Mila to hoga Na. Ofcourse she must have got Afterall I had put it just beside her. But then why she didn’t call me yet? Woh theek to hogi Na? Kahin use Kuch…   No Maan, don’t think like that. Geet must be fine; she has to be fine. But then why she didn’t call me yet? Is she very much upset from me? But still she would have called me becoz she knows that I am waiting for her call so desperately. Should I call her? But what if she didn’t like that, I mean she needs some tym to decide afterall its about her future. Don’t worry Maan she must have stuck up in something nd as soon as she would be free from it she’ll call you nd moreover she must be needing sometym to decide so just relax nd wait for sometym.” He thought as he sighed heavily don’t know whom is he consoling himself or his heart

 

“S-s-sir. You okay.” Maan heard Adi’s stammering voice that bring him out from his reverie nd he just gave a curt nod acknowledging his presence over there before resuming the conversation with the engineers.

 

*************************************************************

 

Geet came out from the washroom wiping her hairs when her gaze falls on the letter lyieng on the table calling out for her attention making her remember that Maan must be waiting for her call. She instantly ran towards the table nd grabbed her cellphone nd quickly punched Maan’s number but once again she was welcomed by the computerized message stating that due to low network call cannot be connected. She tried yet again nd once again same message welcomed her. Irritatingly she throwed her cell away somewhere on the bed nd thumped on it holding her head between her hands. She desperately wanted to talk to Maan right now nd here this network was becoming another hurdle in their relationship, she thought as she once again picked up the cellphone to call him but once again all she got is disappointment

 

Since the tym she had got Maan’s letter where he had poured out his heart her heart was not at peace. She desperately wanted to see him or even just hear him once. She was all in tears when she finished reading Maan’s letter nd a drop of tear rolled down from her cheek nd fell on his name when she realized what all Maan has gone through in these two months. What turmoil he had faced while differentiating between his attraction nd love. Nd may be thatsy everything has gone out of hand like this when he had seen the renovation on the room; she thought as she clutched the letter close to her heart feeling his agony. she instantly remind of what her Badi Maa has said regarding her mother nd father relationship nd how her father was not ready to accept that he had started loving his mother. Probably Maan too was in same dilemma when he had said those hurtful words to her, she thought as she cursed herself umpteenth tym for not understanding his condition all this while.

 

 

Geet re-read the last part of the letter where he had left it on her to decide whatever she wants nd whatever punishment she wants to give him nd her heart went out for him when she realized that even after not being completely in mistake he was asking her to punish him but not at the cost of her happiness, her normal self. He can’t bear her indifference because he can’t see her fighting like this with herself. At that moment only she has decided what she has to do. She didn’t even gave to second thought to her decision because she knows that what she has decided is not at all wrong.

 

She decided to give Maan a chance, to give him the tym to accept his feelings to himself. No matter how many days, how many weeks, how many months or how many years he wants but she’ll give him that tym nd will wait for him till eternity just like she use to do till now. Yes for sometym she got budged from her decision nd therefore has started expecting his Love for her. She had forget that she had decided to love him selflessly nd unconditionally without expecting anything in return nd may be thatsy she had though unknowingly had hurted him but not now. As Badi Maa said she had to keep her patience like her mother nd if her Love is true then soon Maan will accept this not only to himself but to her also that he loves her irrecoverably, she thought as she instantly wiped away her tears nd searched for her cellphone to call him nd tell that she don’t have any punishment to give him bas just he come back soon so that she could hide herself in his arms like before nd tell him that she’s ready to wait for him till her last breath.

 

But as she punched his number on the cellphone she found a computerized message from other side stating that his cell is out of network coverage area. She tried again nd again in the hope that may be the message on the other side would change nd instead of this computerized voice she could hear the voice of the person who is her lyf but it’s still the same as it was before. Sighing heavily she just puts her cellphone aside nd left for washroom to take shower in the hope that when she’ll come out she’ll be able to talk to him

 

So now here she’s once again trying his cellphone but this tym instead of out of network coverage area it states that due to busy network call cannot be connected. She was getting restless by every passing minute nd this non-connection of call was just adding more fuel to her miseries. She don’t know why but she’s having this uncanny feeling that something bad is going to happen, that somewhere something is not right. She kept her hand on her thudding heart nd shrugged off all the bad thoughts that were clouding her heart but her restlessness was nowhere to be subsided. Last tym she had this type of feeling when she got the news of Sameera’s mission nd then her accident. After that incident she’s having the same feeling now that indicates that something is going to happen.

 

“Maan” she whispered her name as she kept her hand on her heart closing her eyes nd shrugging off all the bad thoughts that are covering her heart nd mind regarding him.

 

She has to talk to him anyhow. Nothing bad is going to happen to him. She won’t let anything happen to him; she thought as she once again grabbed her cellphone nd punched his number with her shivering hands praying to god that she would be able to listen to his voice nd it seems that God has finally listen to her as this tym she heard the ringing sound of his cellphone from the other side making her sigh in relief as she waited impatiently for him to take the call.

 

Maan was in meeting with the engineers when he felt the vibration on his cellphone nd his eyes instantly lighten up when he saw the same name flashing on the screen of which he has been waiting for so long. His heart danced in joy when he saw Geet’s name flashing on the screen but at the same tym this anticipation was also there that what she must have decided. Will she forgive him nd give him a chance or just punish him by leaving him or any other thing, he thought as he excused himself for a while leaving Adi to handle the meeting nd goes to the far corner to take the call. With a thudding heart he had pressed the “Answer” button only to be greeted by the same melodious voice which he has been dyeing to listen from so long.

 

“Maan. Where are you? You are fine Na? When will you come back? Everything is fine over there Na?” he heard tirade of questions from the other side as soon as he picked up the call nd he couldn’t help with the chuckle that escaped listening to the series of questions of his naive nd innocent voice

 

“Geet, I am fine nd now after hearing your voice I am absolutely fine. Just relax.” He said in order to calm down his hyper wife nd Geet just sighed in relief listening to him all safe nd sound. Few moments passed by but none spoke to each other as Geet was trying to formulate correct sets of words to convey her feelings while Maan was waiting impatiently for her to speak.

 

“Geet, tum theek ho Na.” Maan said after a while breaking the ice between them making Geet realize that Maan is on call.

 

“I am fine Maan. I wanted to say something to you.” Geet said after taking a deep breath nd Maan just held his breath waiting for her to continue.

 

“Maan… Woh I read your letter…woh I wanted to say that I…”

 

“Hello… Hello Geet… you there?” Geet heard Maan’s voice interrupting her in between nd her senses instantly shots up as she felt that uncanny feeling gripping her heart yet again.

 

“Hello Maan… Maan can you hear me?” She asked as she went near the window in panic.

 

“Ya Geet… network over here is low… What were you saying…” Geet heard Maan’s voice coming in gaps thus increasing her anxiety.

 

“Maan… I want to say that I am ready to wait for you forever… I am ready to give you whatever tym you wanted… Hello Maan… Maan you listening to me” she said when she felt no response from other side.

 

“Geet I am not getting your voice clearly… Wait let me go to some other side.” Maan said as he located a secluded corner of the building hoping to get some network.

 

It was the area where some electric work was going on along with welding nd since all the workers were at strike as the structure of building of that side was weak no worker was there at that tym. Maan was so desperate to talk to Geet that he forgot this fact nd moved towards that side in order to get proper network. Adi tries to stop him as he saw her going over there but Maan was too lost in listening to what Geet was saying that he didn’t paid attention to what Adi is saying nd just signaled him to handle the meeting while he’ll be back soon unknown of the danger awaiting for him

 

“Ya Geet now say. Here the network is quiet good.” Maan said as soon as he reached to that corner. Geet who was holding her breath till now sighed in relief when she heard him again all safe nd sound nd hence shrugged off all the bad thoughts thinking it to be fragment of her imagination but least she knows that her sixth sense was continuously indicating about the danger which Maan was going to face

 

“Maan woh I wanted to say that I…” Her words left unsaid as she heard a loud sound from other side of something crashing down. The wires spread over there caught some fire thus resulting into short circuit nd since the structure of the building was weak it couldn’t bear this nd resulted into falling down.

 

 

“Maan’.. Maan you fine Na’.. What kind of sound was that?  Please say that you are fine.” Geet said gluing the cellphone tight to her ears nd next moment she heard a sound of something blasting along with Maan’s scream.

 

“MAAN!!!!!!” she screamed out loud nd her hand accidently hits the box of Sindoor kept on the table while turning making it spill on the floor nd she thumped on the floor numb nd horrified with this inauspicious sign nd the turn of events with phone still clutching to her ear her. She could listen rushing sound of peoples talking but she could hardly make out what are they speaking but one thing for which her heart is sure that Maan has became the victim of some big danger.

 

“MAAN!!!!!!” she screamed out his name yet again as tears started to fall from her eyes as she felt her lyf slipping away from her hands nd all she could do is to just sit over there numb while the person who is sole reason of her existence was lyieng over in pool of blood

Geet looked through the glass circle of the door of ICU nd her heart cried as she seeing the person who is sole reason of her existence surrounded by wires nd pipes fighting between life nd death with doctor rushing here nd there treating him, checking the machines, injecting him saline. Everytym any nurse or doctor came out from the ICU she looked at them expectantly but Everytym her expectation just broke when they disappears back inside the ICU with a worried face. Maan’s operation was done but still his condition was very critical. She heard doctor saying that he got injured badly on his head causing to heavy blood loss along with Deep wounds on rest of the body nd fracture on his Left arm nd few other places but she was standing over there all numb looking at him through the glass door with her teary eyes

 

 

Whole Khurana nd Handa Family was present over there nd they cried seeing the condition of these two souls especially Dadimaa nd Madhu who were crying their eyes out seeing the condition of their children. Madhu goes near Geet nd kept a hand on her shoulder to get any response from her but it seems that world around Geet has stilled as her eyes were just fixed on the door looking at the person who is fighting for his lyf inside. Annie hugged her while crying seeing her state but Geet didn’t respond at all. She is in the same condition since the tym she had heard the sound of blast from other side.

 

It was her loud scream that draws Dev’s attention as he was passing by her room nd he immediately rushed inside her room only to find her sitting on her knees on floor with phone in her hand all numb nd silent with tears flowing from her eyes. He immediately called Dadimaa nd others nd all were shocked to see this state of hers. Dadimaa shrugged her shoulders to gain her attention but she was not responding at all. It was then Dev noticed that she was on some call nd he immediately took her cell only to find that she’s talking to Maan. Without wasting any minute he had dialed Adi’s number sensing something dreadful nd his fears come true when Adi confirmed about the accident taken place on the site nd informed them to reach the xyz hospital soon as they are admitting Maan over there.

 

aa main kamlee naam dhadava

aa main kamlee naam dhadava

par ik koi ratan lagaava

tu meri jaan hai tu mera armaan hai…

tu meri jaan hai tu mera armaan hai…

ni main shagun manaava

ni main deva duwava…

 

And since then Geet didn’t said a word but she was listening to each nd every word that people were saying around her. She heard the comforting words of her Badi Maa, she heard doctors telling about how deep Maan’s injuries are nd how critical his condition is, she heard Vicky nd Savera assuring her that Maan will be fine but she didn’t responded because her mind was just stuck at the condition of the person behind that glass door. It was Madhu who had jerked her hard to bring her back in the present making Geet to look at her confusingly.

 

“Badi Maa, Dadimaa please don’t cry. Nothing will happen to Maan. Doctors to Kuch bhi kehte hai. I am saying Na nothing will happen to Maan. Vicky, Dev you both say them Na that Maan will be fine. He has to be fine. Hai Na.” Geet blabbers amidst her tears nd everyone just felt a lump on their throat seeing her trying to be strong when she very well knows that from inside she too is breaking

 

“Ya Bhabhi Maan Bhai will be fine. You please sit over here.” Vicky said as he tries to make Geet sit on the nearby bench but she refused to move away from there nd just keeps on looking inside the ICU. Savera gestured him to not to force Geet so he just moved aside leaving her alone over there to look at Maan.

 

Vidyut saw Geet’s condition nd he felt the corner of his eyes burning seeing her in that state. His hatred towards Maan nd Geet’s relationship was different but his Love for Geet is different nd it was really unbearable for him to see her in this state. He wanted to comfort her, to save her from breaking down, to engulf her in his arms where she could cry her heart out but he could do nothing of that rather than just looking at her helplessly. He was equally worried for Maan’s condition too but more worried for Geet’s this state. Therefore shrugging away all the thoughts of right nd wrong, he just went near her nd kept a comforting hand on her shoulder to assure her that everything will be fine. Geet felt the skin of her body crawling when she felt a touch other then Maan’s she immediately looked at the person only to find Vidyut standing over there with an assuring eyes nd worried face. She looked at her for a while as if trying to read what’s there in his mind nd then just removed his hand aside slowly nd goes to stand near Dadimaa leaving Vidyut behind hurt nd disappointed.

Duniya ko bhool jaaoo main tere pyaar mein

Duniya ko bhool jaaoo main tere pyaar mein

 

Tu nahi toh aag lage is sansaar mein

 

It was more than 3 hours nd doctors were still treating him nd by every passing minute Geet’s condition was worsening in fear. She clutched her Mangalsutra tight in her hand nd closed her eyes to keep away all the bad thoughts that were clouding her heart nd mind praying to her Babaji to grant her Maan’s lyf. Unknown to herself tears were continuously flowing from her eyes seeing the sudden turn of events. She remembered the moments that she had spent with him, the most blissful moments of her lyf nd now everything seems to be misty nd blurred in the fog of this bitter reality. Why god is being so unfair to her. If she has done any mistake then he should have punished her, why is he punishing Maan like that, she thought as she tries to muffle her sob. If anything would have happen to him today then she won’t be able to live. But then she immediately shrugged off the thought of anything happening to him. How can she even think of something like this? She won’t let anything happen to him until she’s alive. Every trouble has to cross her first before reaching to her. She won’t hesitate in even shedding the last drop of her blood if it costs his lyf. Yes she’ll save him no matter what. He had to be fine for her, she won’t let anything happen to him, she thought determiningly as she looked at the door of ICU only to find doctor coming outside with a worried face.

 

Tenu dil da haal sunaava

aa main kamlee naam dadaava

par ik koi ratan lagaava

 

 

“Doctor how is Maan? He’s fine Na? Is he ok now? Can I see him” she asked as soon as Doctor came outside

 

“Mrs. Khurana Relax first of all. We are trying our best but his condition is really very critical. Though his operation was done nd we had stopped internal bleeding too but his condition is still very serious. His Pulse rate is getting low every minute even his BP is fluctuating. And the worst part is that he’s sinking by every now nd then. We are trying our level best to save him but I am afraid to say that we are not getting the response we are expecting. His body is not responding to our treatments. If his body didn’t respond to our treatment within 24 hrs den condition can be more dangerous for him. You all just pray to God that he respond as now only a miracle can save him.” Doctor revealed nd colors of everyone faces washed away as they listened the dreadful condition of Maan. Geet felt the floor beneath her slipping away nd she thumped on the nearby bench listening to what doctor has said. She felt like she’ll die den nd dere only. Why god is not taking her lyf before making her witnessing this condition of Maan, she thought as she looked at the door painfully

 

“Doctor there must be some way. Call the best specialists but please save Bro. don’t care about the money. I want best treatment for my brother.” Dev said in panic not able to believe what Doctor is saying

 

“Mr. Khurana I had already informed the best surgeon nd he’s on his way but you also try to understand that Mr. Khurana’s body needs to respond to our treatment. Don’t worry keep praying for him. God will never unheard the prayers of his loved ones.” Doctor said as he puts a comforting hand on his shoulder

 

tu meri jaan hai tu mera armaan hai

tu meri jaan hai tu mera armaan hai

 

“Can we see him Doctor? Please just once. We’ll see him from far only.” Vicky rather pleaded nd doctor couldn’t ignore his plight therefore he gave them his approval but one person at a tym nd before anyone could know anything they saw Geet rushing inside the ICU as if nothing else matter to her. None of them stopped her as they all know that how important it is for Geet to see him nd now only she nd her prayers could save Maan from death. Vidyut saw her rushing inside the ICU like a maniac nd he just looked other side hiding away his tears seeing her immense love for someone else.

 

************************************************************

 

Music…

 

 

Geet slowly entered inside d ICU looking at Maan’s lifeless body. Fresh tears welled up in her eyes as she had his close view. His whole body was injected with so many wires nd tubes while his hand was injected with so many needles nd her heart pained to see him like that. She could hear the beep sounds of machines that were attached to his body nd her heart sank in fear when she the machines not showing desired effect. She slowly went near him nd sat beside his bed on the stool nd holds his hand in hers while biting her lips to muffle the sob that was desperate to escape her throat seeing his condition. She gently kissed the back of his palm as a drop of tear fell on his hand indicating her pain.

 

rabba mere pyaar ko nazar lag jaaye na

rabba mere pyaar ko nazar lag jaaye na

 

mangiya duwava lakha dukh ud sataave na

 

“Bahut Maza aa raha hai Na Aapko mujhe is tarah se pareshaan kar ke, mujhe yun Rota hua Dekh ke. You are taking revenge on me right because I had bothered you a lot in last 7 days with my indifference so you decide to bother me with this condition of yours. You know Na that even a single scratch on your body flinch me thatsy you are lyieng over here not responding to any of the treatments. But get this thing clear in your head Mr. Maan Singh Khurana that Geet Maan Singh Khurana will not let happen anything to you. you only said na that I had all the rights on you then make this thing clear that I had right on your lyf too nd you alone can’t decide to go away from me like this did you get that?” Geet said amidst her tears as she looked at her lifeless form.

 

Tenu dil da haal sunaava

Ni main lakh lakh sukhr manaava

aa main kamlee naam dhadava

par ik koi ratan lagaava
tu meri jaan hai tu mera armaan hai

tu meri jaan hai tu mera armaan hai

 

“You have to be fine Maan. You had to come back for me because I yet had to give you my punishment. What had you thought that I’ll give such a simple punishment? No you are wrong, you won’t get such a simple punishment of you going away from me. You wanted to know your punishment right? Then your punishment is that you had to be get all right nd come back to me. You had to bear my non sense talks, my idiotic antics, my blabbering, my bossing on you for whole of your lyf. Shaadi ki hai aapne Mujhse, you had promised me to be with me for whole of my lyf, itni aasani se Aapko apni lyf se nahi jaane doongi. You had to bear my presence for whole of your lyf because this life of yours is mine nd you don’t have any right to harm my life did you get that.” Geet said as she looked at Maan determiningly while cupping his face between her hands indicating the extent of her love for him.

“I’ll not let happen anything to you Maan. I’ll bring you back from that god even if I had to fight with him, I’ll fight. Even if it costs my last breath but I won’t let anything happen to you. Your Geet is incomplete without you Maan nd you just can’t leave her alone like this. Babaji has taken away many people from me but now I won’t let him take away you from me. You nd Babaji wanted to test my Love for you right, wanted to see that to which extent I can go in your love then I’ll prove my Love for you not only to you but to that God also. I’ll make him bend on my demands today nd he had to grant me your lyf. Aap Sirf Mere ho, sirf mere nd I won’t let anyone to snatch you away from me not even Babaji. No one has this right to take away your lyf. Aapko Theek hona hoga Maan because I yet had to tell you my feelings. We had to fight on so many things; we had to see Vicky nd Annie’s weddings nd Dadimaa we had to take care of her also. Nd then you also asked me for sometym Na so that you can accept your feelings for me then how can you leave in the mid like this. you cant run away from me like this, i wont let you run away from me like this. No Maan, you had to fight just like I’ll fight from God for your lyf. You can’t leave me alone over here like this. I won’t be able to live without you. I promise till my body is having last drop of  blood in it, till I am having last breath I won’t let anything happen to you nd for that if I had to fight from my Babaji also then also I won’t hesitate. I won’t let you go away from my lyf so easily Aur ye Geet Maan Singh Khurana ka vaada hai aapse.” Geet said as she got up nd wiped away her tears knowing very well that what she has to do now nd kissed on Maan’s forehead before leaving the ICU with a strong determination to bring back his lyf from that God but not before giving him a last look as if telling him that she won’t let anything happen to him.

 

***********************************************************

 

Everyone gathered around her as soon as she came out from the ICU asking her numerous questions about Maan’s condition nd all but she replied to none nd just looked at the direction of the exit. It was then Madhu nd Dadimaa saw some strange emotion in her eyes making them halt in her questions. There was a strange determination in them, a kind of madness that they knew could only be there when a married woman decide on something on the cost of her lyf. Madhu knew the extent of Geet’s love for Maan but right now even she had shivered seeing the intensity of her eyes. But before she or other could say or ask something from her she made her way across the corridor towards the exit leaving everyone behind baffled nd confused. Vidyut too noticed same what Madhu had noticed nd he was sure that she’s upto something which can be dreadful for her nd therefore he turns to run behind her to stop her when he was halted by Vicky.

 

“Vicky Why had you stopped me? Can’t you see Geet is going somewhere” Vidyut chided him as he tries to free his hand.

 

“Vidyut Bhai, Geet Bhabhi won’t listen anyone right now. Nd don’t worry I am going behind her. You stay at the hospital only as Dev Bhai won’t be able to handle everything alone nd he must be needing you. Please you had to be here to support Dadimaa nd others. Don’t worry I’ll be with her all the tym nd I promise that I’ll come back after taking Bhabhi along with me only.” Vicky tries to make him understand the situation nd Vidyut just looked other side in frustration feeling helpless. Vicky looked at him for a while nd then left to the direction where Geet has left not knowing what exactly was running in her mind.

 

“Bhabhi, Bhabhi please listen to me once.” Vicky pleaded as he tries to match his pace with Geet who was walking ahead immune to her surroundings. Since the tym they came out from hospital Vicky is continuously pleading Geet to stop who was walking to an unknown direction forgetting the world around her.

 

“Bhabhi Please, you’ll get hurt by walking bare foot like this. Atleast sit in the car nd I promise we’ll go wherever you say. But please don’t do this to yourself.” Vicky pleaded yet again as he saw Geet walking bare foot on the dusty road hurting her foot in the process from the rocks nd pebbles but no pain seems to stop her.

 

“Bhabhi for god sake listen to me once. If not for me then for Maan Bhai Please.” Vicky rather shouted in helplessness seeing no effect on Geet. Geet stopped for a while hearing Maan’s name nd looked at Vicky nd just when Vicky thought that she’ll agree to what he’s saying she again resumed walking leaving Vicky behind baffled.

Preet ki lat mohe aaisi laagi
Ho gayi main matwaali
Bal bal jaaun apane piya ko
He main jaaun vaari vaari

 

For Geet nothing else matters than Maan, not even her own self. The pebbles nd small rocks were pricking the soft skin of her feet bust she didn’t felt that pain as the pain she’s feeling right now in her heart after seeing Maan in that condition was far more than the pain she was feeling in her wounded legs. With the determination in her eyes nd every move she just keeps on moving towards her destination ignoring to what Vicky is saying, ignoring the fact that her feet is wounded badly due to walking bare foot on the dusty road, ignoring the fact that she didn’t even had a single drop of water since morning. It seems that today she had decided to break all the boundaries which differentiate sane person from being insane, yes she has gone insane in the love of her Maan, she has became his Deewani with each nd every fiber of her body. it seems like today she can go to any extent to show that God the extent of her love so that he couldn’t even dare to think of harming a single fiber her Maan’s body. It’s just not only madness of a lover but also of a wife who can go to any extent to get back her husband’s lyf.

 

Mohe sudh budh naa rahi tan mann ki
Yeh toh jaane duniya saari
Bebas aur laachar phiru main
Haari main dil haari

Haari main dil haari

 

Today she has decided either to bring back Maan’s lyf from the god or to give away her lyf along with his but in no way she’s going to let him leave her to live without him over here. Her sole existence is due to him nd if he won’t be with her then there’s no reason for her to live. She would happily accept death than to live without him as she then knew that If not in this world then in some other world they will be together. And today if it costs her lyf also then also she won’t hesitate in draining the single drop of her blood if it costs his well-being, she thought as she walked towards the home of God to seek the lyf of her husband with Vicky following behind her helplessly.

 

One hour passed by nd she was still walking endlessly without paying any heed to Vicky’s pleadings, without caring about her bleeding feet. Her face is becoming pale by every passing nd she could see the darkness in front of her eyes also by every now nd then but nothing seems to be stop her at this moment. Vicky had finally given up in front of her determination as he realized that she won’t listen to anyone when it comes to Maan. He don’t know whether he should be happy at this moment seeing that his brother had got such a selfless nd unconditional lover or he should be sad that the same love is making her immune to everything even her own self. Sighing he just follows her where she is going because he had to make sure that she should reach safely to his brother for whom she’s going to now fight with God.

 

Tere naam se jee loon
Tere naam se marr jaaun

 

Tere naam se jee loon
Tere naam se marr jaaun

 

 

Teri jaan ke sadke mein kuchh aaisa kar jaaun
Tune kya kar dala marr gayi main mitt gayi main
Ho ri ha ri ho gayi main
Teri deewani deewani

Teri deewani deewani

Geet saw a Dargah on her way nd on her own accord her feet carried her towards that direction knowing very well that she won’t return empty hand from the door of God. Vicky just quietly followed her as now he was also sure that only his Bhabhi can bring back the life of his brother. Geet could hear the voices of singers as she walk past then as they sung that phrase depicting the condition of her heart making her heart do summersault. With thudding heart nd shaking legs she went inside where everyone was worshipping after covering her head with her duppatta nd send in front of almighty for praying. Vicky too sat beside her quietly to pray for his brother’s safety.

 

Tune kya kar dala marr gayi main mitt gayi main
Ho ri ha ri ho gayi main
Teri deewani Deewani

Teri deewani deewani

 

“I know my belief in you is not wrong. I know that you are really present on this earth. I know that you are just not a mere image. But today you had to prove me your existence, today you had to prove that my belief on you is right, today you had to prove your power to me. I know I was wrong in distancing myself from Maan without even listening to what he was trying to say. Though unknowingly, I had committed a mistake by punishing him like this when he himself was burning in his miseries. So it should be me only Na who had to be punished by you, then why are you punishing my Maan like this. It was you only who had brought Maan in my lyf nd now you only want to take him away from me. No, I won’t let you do that. You can’t take him away from me. People says that no one returns empty hand from your door nd today you had to prove that what all they were saying is right. Yes I am challenging you today. I challenge you to prove yourself in front of me. If you really possess powers then save my husband or else I’ll believe that whatever everyone say about your existence is all wrong. Today, it’s not only the test of my love for Maan but it’s also the test of your existence nd power on this earth. Today either you have to grant me my husband’s lyf or else I’ll also give away my lyf in your door step nd I mean it. Now its upto you what you want; you want to grant my wish nd prove your existence on this earth or you want to see the ending of two lives at the same tym in front of your own eyes.” Geet said as she started at the almighty in front of her but there was not a single drop of tear in her eyes but a strange determination nd intimidating look which could scare even God then forget about human being. Vicky looked at the woman beside him nd then back at the almighty as if pleading him to grant her wish because he won’t be able to see his two favourite persons in this condition.

 

Tune kya kar dala marr gayi main mitt gayi main
Ho ri ha ri ho gayi main
Teri deewani Deewani

Teri deewani deewani

 

 

Geet sat in front of almighty for a while praying to him or to be better say threatening him to grant her, her Maan’s lyf nd then stood up nd walks upto the corner after taking round around the Dargah where people were tying threads in order to ask a wish from God. Geet too tied a thread nd asked only to grant her Maan’s lyf nd take her lyf instead as she had no regret in giving away her lyf if it costs to save Maan’s life nd promised that she won’t ask anything else apart from this not even the place that she want in Maan’s heart. She has just turned to leave after tying the thread when her gaze falls at the place which was a bit crowded nd as she craned her head to look closely she found people walking to nd fro on the path of burning coal. Out of curiosity she moved near them limping only to be collided with a Fakeer Baba in her way.

 

Music…

 

“Maaf kijiyega Baba. Maine Aapko Dekha nahi. She apologized politely as she looked at the old man in front of her who was looking at her strangely.

 

[I am sorry Baba. I haven’t noticed you]

 

“Tu hi hai woh. Tujhse hi hoga ye.” Baba’s words made her confused as she looked at him confusingly

 

[you are the one. You are the only one who can do this]

 

“Bahut pyar karti hai na tu usse. Khuda tak se ladne aa gayi uske liye” he spoke further nd Geet’s eyes widens in shock as she looked at him in surprise.

 

[You really love him a lot, isn’t it? so much that you had come here to fight with God for him.]

 

“Kya Soch rahi hai Beti ki mujhe kaise pata hai. These eyes can never be wrong in recognizing true Love nd you Love is oozing from each nd every cell of your body. Tu hi hai woh, tu hi hai jo use bacha sakti hai. Tera Pyaar hi ab bachayega use. Ab ye tujh pe hai ki tu kis had tak ja sakti hai uske liye.” Baba said giving new zeal to Geet’s hope.

 

[What are you thinking that how I came to know about this? These eyes can never be wrong in recognizing true Love nd you Love is oozing from each nd every cell of your body. You are the one, you are the only one who can save him. Now only your Love can save him. Now its upto you that you can go to which extent to save him.]

 

Ishq junoon jab hadh se badh jaaye

Ishq junoon jab hadh se badh jaaye

Haste haste aashiq suli chadh jaaye

 

“Kisi bhi had tak Baba. I can give away even my life for him. Nothing in this world could stop my love for him.”

 

[Till any extent Baba. I can give away even my life for him. Nothing in this world could stop my love for him.]

 

“To jaa Paar kar dein Aaj saari hadein. Deewani hai na tu uski to saabit kar de Aaj apni Deewangi. Chal jaa in Angaro par aur dikha de ki tere Pyar ke Aage ye Jalte Angare kuch bhi nahi hai. Dikha de us Khuda ko apne Pyaar ki taakat. Jhuka de use aaj apne Pyaar ke aage. Bata de use ki usme to kya Duniya ki koi bhi taakat tere pyar ko Tujhse juda nahi kar sakti. Aaj ye tere Pyaa ki Agni Pariksha hai aur tujhe isme khara utarna hoga. Yaad rakh Beti ki Sona Aag me tap kar hi khalis hota hai, Aaj tere Pyaar ko bhi is Aag me tap kar khud ko khara saabit karna hoga. Baana hoga tujhe missal un sab pyar karne walon ke liye jo ek doosre ke liye hazaar kasmein khaate hai aur unhe nibhane ke liye kisi bhi had tak ja sakte hai. Bol De sakti hai tu uske liye ye Pariksha, kar sakti hai tu uske liye khud ko Fanna? Hain tere pyar me itni himmat, itna junoon ki uske liye kuch bhi kar guzregi.” Baba interrogated her intimidately when he could himself see her Deewangi for her love in her eyes yet he wanted her to be an example for all those lovers who can go to any extent for their loved ones.

 

[Then go nd cross all the extents today. You are crazy for him right, then go nd prove your Deewangi for him today. Walk over on these burning coals nd show the world that these burning coals are nothing in front of your Love. Show that God the power of your Love. Make him bent down in front of your Love. Show him that nothing in this world could separate you from your Love then forget about he himself. Today it’s an Agnipariksha for your Love nd you have to succeed in it. Remember Beti that Gold gets pure after getting burnt into the fire nd today your Love has also burn in this fire to prove himself stronger than any other power. You had to become a living example for all those lovers who use to take so many oaths for each other nd can go to nay extent for it. So tell me, are you ready to give this exam for your Lover, can you destroy yourself in his Love? Did your Love had this much courage, this much obsession then you can do anything or everything for him?]

 

Ishq ka jaadu sara chadha kara bole

Ishq ka jaadu sara chadha kara bole

Khoob laga lo pehre raste rab khole

 

“Main karoongi Baba. Unki Zindagi ke liye main Kuch bhi kar sakti hoon. Fir chahe mujhe uske liye apni Zindagi hi kyun Na deni pade par unke liye main Aakhri Saans tak ladoongi. Par main mere pyar ko haarne nahi doongi. Main saabit kar doongi ke unke liye mera Pyaar mera junnon hai, meri sabse badi Taakat. Main karungi yeh aur tab tak karti rahoongi jab tak ki main unki Zindagi na bacha lu.” Geet said with a new determination in her eyes nd Baba just smiled seeing her true Love before blessing her to be successful in her task nd Geet just moved towards the path of burning coal.

 

[I’ll do it Baba. I can do anything for his lyf. No matter if I had to give away my lyf also for it. But I’ll fight till my last breath for him but I won’t let my Love to get defeated. I’ll Prove it that my Love for him is my obsession nd my biggest strength. I’ll do this nd keeps on doing this until I’ll save his lyf.]

 

“Bhabhi, Bhabhi Wait!!! Where are you going?” Vicky who just came to the spot after a tying the thread for his brother’s safety tries to stop Geet when he found her going towards the path of Burning coal.

 

“Mat rok Aaj use Beta. Koi nahi rok payega Aaj is Deewani ko. You don’t worry about her; her Love is her biggest strength aur uske sir par upar wale ka haath hai. Woh apne bande ko niraash nahi karega. Tu dekhna woh apni is pariksha me zaroor safal hogi. Duniya dekhegi aaj uski Deewangi” Baba said as he walked away chanting Allah’s name leaving Vicky behind to witness the scene in front of him.

 

[Don’t stop him today Beta. no one will be able to stop this Deewani today. You don’t worry about her; her Love is her biggest strength nd she had the hand of God on her head nd he’ll not disappoint his beloved ones. You see she’ll definitely gets succeeded in her test. Whole world will see her Deewangi today.]

 

“Tu hi hai woh. Tujhse hi hoga ye. Tera Pyar hi ab bachayega use.”

 

“Hain tere pyar me itni himmat, itna junoon ki uske liye Kuch bhi kar guzregi.”

 

Yahi ishq di marzi hain
Yahi rab di marzi hain
Yahi ishq di marzi hain
Yahi rab di marzi hain
Tere bin jeena kaisa
Haan Khudgarzi hai
Tune kya kar dala marr gayi main mitt gayi main
Ho ri ha ha ri ho gayi main

Teri deewani Deewani

Teri deewani Deewani

Teri deewani Deewani

Teri deewani Deewani

 

Geet looked at the long burning path in front of her as the Baba’s words rang in her ears making her determination even stronger nd next moment she kept her injured foot on the Burning coal chanting “Om tryambakam yajamahe sugandhim pushti-vardhanam urva rukamiva bandhanan Mrityormukshiya mamritat”; the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra while keeping the another foot also on the burning coal nd started walking on it. The heat emitting from the coal started burning the soft skin of her feet nd Vicky just closed his eyes as he witnessed the scene in front of him but what amazed him more was that there was not a single flinch from Geet as if she was walking on the bed of roses nd not on burning coal. He just keeps on looking at her in horror as she walked on the path of burning coal casually as if it was a cake walk for her.

 

[For those who don’t know About Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra.. The Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra means “great death-conquering mantra”.

 

This great mantra dedicated to Rudra or lord Shiva as Mrityunjaya is found in the Rig Veda. It is called the Maha Mrityunjaya mantra, the Great Death-Conquering mantra. It is a mantra that has many names and forms. It is called the Rudra mantra, referring to the furious aspect of Shiva; the Tryambakam mantra, alluding to Shiva’s three eyes; and it is sometimes known as the Mrita-Sanjivini mantra because it is a component of the “life-restoring” practice given to the primordial sage Shukra after he had completed an exhausting period of austerity. The Maha Mrityunjaya mantra is hailed by the sages as the heart of the Veda.

 

Mrityunjaya Mantra is recited as a remedy to forgo untimely death. The English Translation of this Mantra is:

 

“Three-eyed one, I meditate on you, who increase fragrance and nourishment. From powerful disease, bondage and death free us into immortality.”

For Geet, her own life is nothing in front of Maan. She could feel the skin of her already injured feet getting peeled off due to excessive burn but it didn’t budge her from doing what she’s doing right now. If anyone else would be at her place then he or she may have been fainted by now out of fatigue due to the excessive torture on his or her body but Geet felt nothing. The only thing that was running in her mind was that she has to save Maan at any cost. She had to prove her Love for him nd make it win nd for that she won’t even hesitate in giving up her own lyf if it costs in saving his lyf because there’s basically no lyf without him nd it will be nothing but a punishment, a curse to live without him which she won’t let happen in this birth atleast

 

Here in Hospital, there’s sudden rise nd fall in Maan’s body as he took a deep breath all of a sudden nd all the doctors nd attendants rushed to check him. They were shocked to see the instant rise in his heartbeat as if it could sense the craziness of the person who loves him beyond the limit of sanity making his body nd will power to fight with his fate for that one person for whom he’s her whole world. Doctors started rushing in nd out of ICU instructing the ward boys nd nurses for this nd that instrument as they saw the fluctuating condition of Maan giving them a tiny miny hope of his survival.

 

*******************************************************

 

The whole place was bright nd white as he walked through the dense fog to an unknown path when he saw a blurred image of a lady in white Saree walking ahead at a distance. His pace gets quickened on his own accord as found that image familiar nd started following her when that lady stops sensing someone behind her nd turned to look back, Maan was shock beyond his wits when he saw the face of the lady making his eyes widens in shock nd surprise.

 

“Sameera” he muttered in shock as he started to move towards her while smiling amidst his tears who was standing at the edge of a cliff.

 

“Stop Maan. Don’t come here. It’s not your Destiny Maan; it’s not your destination, this is not your world. Your destiny, destination nd your world is someone else.” Sameera said as she pointed behind him nd Maan furrowed his brows in confusion as he looked back at the direction she was pointing.

 

“Geet” he muttered in astonishment as he found her standing in a red Saree in a worn out state on the other edge of the cliff looking at him with her teary eyes.

 

“Maan, Don’t go away from me please. I won’t be able to live without you.” She whimpered as she looked at Maan going far away from her

 

“Geet, I am not going anywhere Geet. I am not going to leave you alone ever. Trust me I’ll never leave you alone. Sameera I need to go, I need to go to Geet. She needs me nd more than her, I need her.” Maan said as he instantly moved towards her to embrace her in his arms letting her know that he’s not going anywhere leaving her alone when he stopped in mid nd looked back at Sameera who was standing over there smiling.

 

“Go Maan, Go Back. Don’t hold yourself back. I set you free from every bonds, from every thread today. All the Best nd always be happy with Geet.” Sameera said with a smile as she moved back nd Maan keeps on looking at her retreating figure until it disappears in the fog. He turned back smiling towards Geet nd horror washed over his face when he found her fainting nd was ready to fall off the cliff.

 

“GEET!!!!!!!” He yelled as he tries to run towards her to save her from falling off the cliff while struggling to make his way through the dense fog to reach to her before he could lose her too for forever.

 

******************************************************

 

Oh ho oh hoohhh…..

 

“Doctor his heartbeats are getting hyper. His breathings are not normal.” One of the nurse panicked as she monitor his heart rate nd found him breathing heavily.

 

“Nurse, Get the electric shocker quick nd ya keep xyz injection also ready. I think he’s trying to make through it.” Doctor instructed as he immediately started treating Maan who was still struggling to breathe.

 

“Here’s it Doctor.” Nurse said as she gave the equipment to the doctor.

 

“Ok. 1, 2, 3… Start” Doctor instructed nd one of his attendants gave the shocker near his heart making his body rise up nd fall on the bed nd Doctor looked at the monitor for some improvement nd once again continued the same procedure hoping for a miracle to be happen soon.

 

“Om tryambakam yajamahe sugandhim pushti-vardhanam urva rukamiva bandhanan Mrityormukshiya mamritat” Geet keeps on chanting the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra as she continued to walk on the path of burning coal without a tinge of pain on her face.

 

He main rang rangeeli Deewani

He main rang rangeeli Deewani

Ke main albeli main mastani

 

Everyone present over there was looking at her as if she’s an alien. The most shocked one was Vicky who was now having tears in his eyes seeing the heights of her craziness for his brother. His brother was indeed a lucky one to get such a love nd wife in his life who can go to any extent for him without caring about of her own lyf nd he was sure that if comes a tym then even Maan won’t hesitate to do something for her like this. Vicky feels like to bow down in front of this Love which is so pure nd unconditional. No doubt he nd Savera loves each other but for one thing he was sure that even they can’t do something of this sort for each other. This is something which could only be witnessed in Maan nd Geet’s relationship only nd he was indeed a lucky one who was witnessing this pure form of selfless Love, Vicky thought as he looked at Geet with his teary eyes.

 

Gaaun bajaaun sabko rijhaaun
He main dila zaram se begaani
Ke main deewani main deewani

 

Unknown to the thoughts storming in Vicky’s mind nd heart Geet continued to walk on the burning coal while continuously chanting Mantra. It was Do or die situation for her now nd she was sure that today God has to bend down in front of her love. Strangely, she was feeling an unknown calmness in her heart as if it was telling her that everything is going to be fine yet she keeps on walking until she’ll make sure of his safety. Her feet were badly burnt, her body has become limp nd tired due to exhaustion for giving it enormous torture, she could see darkness in front of her by every now nd then, her condition was worsening due to walking continuously on the burning coal from more than 30 mins now, yet she keeps on walking as if she had determined to stop only after taking her last breath. At this moment her Love for Maan is her biggest strength nd in no case she’s going to be weak until she gets successful in her task. And then the moment came when finally her craziness, her love had shown its results nd God had to bow down in front of her pure nd selfless love.

 

 

After what seems like an eternity Doctor came out of ICU nd whole Khurana clan including Badi Maa nd Vidyut gathered around him to enquire about Maan’s health.

 

“Doctor how is Bro? He’s fine Na. What’s his current status?” Dev asked as soon as Doctor came out from the ICU to which Doctor just out a hand on his shoulder while smiling.

 

“Congratulation Mr. Khurana! You brother is out of Danger now.” Everyone sighed in relief as soon as Doctor’s words reached their ear drums.

 

“It was really a miracle. I mean we had lost all our hopes that he’ll be able to make through it seeing his condition but it seems that someone’s prayers have really shown its effects sue to which Mr. Khurana had really tried very hard to make through it.” Doctor said nd everyone smiled faintly knowing about whom is he talking.

 

“Can we meet him Doctor?” Annie asked in desperation to see his brother

 

“Abhi we need to keep him under observation for a hour nd then we’ll shift him to the ward nd then you all can meet him. Now excuse me, I need to go.” Doctor said as he smiled nd once again left for ICU.

 

“I’ll go nd inform Vicky.” Savera said as she moved towards a corner to make a call to Vicky.

 

*********************************************************

 

Tere naam se jee loon tere naam se marr jaaun
Tere jaan ke sadle mein kuchh aaisa kar jaaun
Tune kya kar dala marr gayi main mitt gayi main

Ho ri ha ri ho gayi main

Teri deewani deewani
Teri deewani Deewani

Vicky was over the moon when he received the call from Savera informing him about Maan’s health nd he instantly looked at Geet who was still walking on the burning coal. He immediately cuts the call after asking her to take care of everyone while he’ll be back soon nd rushed towards Geet nd before she could once again puts her foot on the coal Vicky stops her by holding her wrist making Geet to look at him confusingly.

 

“Bhabhi, you won Bhabhi. You Love won. Maan Bhai is out of danger now. He’ll not leave us. He’ll not go anywhere far from us. Aap Jeet gayi Bhabhi. Hara diya Aapke Pyar ne us upar wale ke faisle ko. Your Love has defeated Bhai’s death.” Vicky squealed in happiness while holding her shoulders while Geet just looks at him blankly trying to fathom that whether it’s a reality or is she dreaming. Did whatever Vicky has said just now was happened in real, she thought as she tries to register his words.

 

[Bhabhi, you won Bhabhi. You Love won. Maan Bhai is out of danger now. He’ll not leave us. He’ll not go anywhere far from us. You won Bhabhi. Your Love had defeated the judgment of that God. Your Love has defeated Bhai’s death.]

 

“Maine kaha tha Na Beti. Tujhse hi hoga Ye. Tera Pyar hi bachaega use. Ye tere Pyar ki jeet hai beta. Allah tum dono ki Jodi aur Pyar salamat rakhe. Yahi is Fakeer ki Dil se dua hai. Take this Taveez, ye hamesha uski har buri nazar se Rakhsha karega.” Baba said as he came to them nd went away chanting Allah’s name after giving her Taweez nd blessing her for her lovely future.

 

[I had told you Na Beti that you are the only one. Only your Love can save him. This is the victory of your Love. May Allah keeps both of your Love nd match safe. This is the only blessing of this Fakeer from all his heart. Take this Taveez; this will always safeguard him from all the evil eyes]

 

(Music)

 

Teri deewani deewani
Teri deewani Deewani

 

(Music)

 

Teri deewani deewani
Teri deewani Deewani

Teri deewani deewani

Geet registered Vicky’s nd Baba’s words nd then looked at the Taveez in her hands making her realize that it was all real nd not her dream. Her Maan is safe from all dangers now. He’ll not go anywhere leaving her alone now. She looked upwards thanking God umpteenth tym for saving the lyf of her Maan. Tears which she had sealed till now had finally made their way out due to the happiness while her lips curved into a smile of satisfaction holding the Taveez tight in her hands. She had no words now to express what she’s feeling right now.  The feeling of satisfaction nd contentment she’s feeling was a feeling beyond words for her. She puts her shivering hand on her heart which was now beating calmly nd took a deep breath in order to make herself believe that everything has become fine now, her Maan is fine now. she cried nd smiled all at the same tym not able to express what she’s feeling right now while holding Vicky’s hands tight with her other hand nd next moment she saw Darkness in front of her eyes feeling dizzy nd before anyone could understand anything she fainted due to excessive exhaustion.

 

“Bhabhi! Bhabhi! Open your eyes” Vicky patted her cheeks as he holds Geet before she could touch the ground nd then scooped her limp nd lifeless Body in his arms making his way towards the hospital when he didn’t found her responding for long.

 

From Geet to Maan:

Meri qismat me tum hi the
Muqaddar tum hi ho mera
Mere maqdoor bhi tum ho
Mohabbat hai jazba e lafaani
Mohabbat tu hi haii janam
Tujhe dil bhool bhi jaaye
Yeh dhadkan kaise bhooleghi
Ke harr ek saas me mere tumhara naam basta haii
Ke har ahsaas me mere tera ahsaas basta haii
Mohabbat dusri hu me
Teri chahat toh lekin hu..
Mohabvlbat marr bhi jaaye toh
Kabhi chahat nhi marti
Tumharey saath rehna
Dukho me saath dena haii
Khushi me tere lab ki muskurahat dil me rakhna haii
Meri qismat me tum hi they
Muqaddar tum hi they mere
Mohabbat ki jo manzil hai woh manzil tum hi ho janam

(Love you Ange Eza for this Lovely poem Hug)

The white paint of the walls, pale white curtains nd the beeping sound of machines were the first thing that Geet had noticed when she had opened her eyes after 2 whole days of unconsciousness. She blinked her couple of tymes to adjust with the surroundings as she tried to sit on the hospital Bed. She looked around herself realizing that it was certainly not her room. it took her mind sometym to register all the happenings nd as the images of Maan’s Lifeless Body nd all the events happened after that flash in her mind, her eyes instantly searched for Maan restlessly through whole room only to realize that he’s not here with her.

 

“Maan” She whispered as the realization of what all had happened hits her nd she instantly got restless nd tries to get up from the bed but die to the Drip in her hand she was unable to do so. At this moment she hates any kind of hurdle between her nd Maan which were stopping her from going to him, from getting just a glimpse of him. She rather harshly tried to remove that needle from her hand in order to get free from all the hurdles nd this is how Savera had seen her when she came into her ward after talking to the Doctor Nd the sight that she saw has shocked her till the core.

 

“Geet, Geet what are you doing? You’ll hurt yourself” Savera said rather in panic as she immediately rushed to her to stop her struggle.

 

“Leave me Savy. I need to go to Maan. I need to see him immediately.” Geet said while shoving away Savera’s hand nd tried to get free from the needle pricked in her hand.

 

“Geet, Jiju is absolutely fine. He’s resting in his ward. Hum baad me unke paas challenge. Abhi you need to take rest. You are not well Geet; Doctor had told that you had become very weak. You know you were unconscious from past 2 days.” Savera rather pleaded as she tried to make her understand her condition but all her words feel into deaf ears as Geet was adamant in removing that needle strip.

 

“Nahi Mujhe Abhi unke paas Jana hai. Mujhe unse Baat karni hai, unhe dekhna hai.” Geet said as she finally removed the Needle strip from her hand nd flinched in pain as she removed it with a jerk but soon that pain got replaced by her restlessness to see Maan nd she get down from her Bed to go out of her ward ignoring to what Savera is continuously saying

 

[No i need to go to him right now. i want to talk to him, to see him]

 

“Geet, your feet were badly wounded. Please you seriously need to take rest. Please listen to me for god sake.” Savera rather shouted in helplessness as she holds Geet’s arm before she made her way out of the ward.

 

“No pain in this world could stop me from seeing Maan right now. I need to go to him immediately or else I won’t be able to sit in peace.” Geet said as she removed Savera’s grip from her arm nd headed outside  limping nd Savera had finally had to gave up knowing very well that she won’t listen to anyone when it’ll come to Maan nd will only be in peace when she’ll see Maan by herself, she thought as she looked at retreating figure of Geet disbelievingly.

 

*******************************************************

 

Geet moved towards Maan’s ward limping after she asked about way to his ward from one of the compounder ignoring the weird look that he had gave to her while telling her the room no.. Each step towards his ward seems to be like an eternity for her as she makes her way towards his room as fast as she can. It was as if she’ll die if she won’t be able to see him immediately. She didn’t cared of the pain of her feet which were yet to be healed properly, she didn’t cared for the sharp pain she’s having in her left hand due to removing the needle strip harshly, she didn’t even cared for the weakness that her body is having even after being on glucose from past 2 days, all she cares at that moment is that she need to see him immediately to make sure that he’s fine nd no danger is clouding over him, that he has not gone anywhere leaving her alone, that he’s going to be with her forever. Nd nothing in this world could budge her from doing so nd hence she keeps on walking towards his room ignoring each nd everything while taking a support of nearby wall.

 

“Geet” Vidyut who was sitting outside Maan’s ward muttered in disbelief as he saw her limping form coming towards Maan’s ward with great difficulty nd it pricked his heart to see her pained face yet she is walking immunely towards the ward nd he immediately got up from his bench to give her support.

 

“Geet, why are you walking like this? You are not well. Come I’ll take you back to your ward.” Vidyut said in concern as he get a hold of her shoulders to take her back to her ward

 

“Leave me. I need to go to Maan.” Geet said as she jerked away his hand from her shoulders that were making her skin crawl with their touch.

 

“Geet, meet him afterwards. He’s absolutely fine but you are not fine. Wounds of your feet are still not healed properly nd you can’t exert them much. Please let me take you back to you ward.” Vidyut rather pleaded in order to make her understand as he once again tried to hold her shoulders to make her stop from moving further

 

“Leave me I said. Don’t touch me. I need to go to Maan.” Geet rather shouted irritatingly as she shoved away Vidyut’s hand with a jerk nd moved ahead as fast as she can leaving Vidyut behind baffled.

Khwab ne chhodi na meri kalayi

 

Geet slowly entered inside the ICU limping looking at Maan’s sleeping form nd her lips curved in a small smile seeing him all safe nd sound nd sleeping peacefully. She don’t have any fear to lose him now as it was replaced by the feeling of being contended seeing the love of her lyf all safe in front of her eyes. A lone tear of happiness escaped from her eyes as she slowly made her way towards him making sure not to disturb his sleep. All the machines nd needles injected to him were replaced by one needle strip of saline while Bandages were still over there in his body. If it would be in her hand then she would remove even that single needle too which must be paining him but inspite of that also she was happy seeing him sleeping so peacefully in front of her eyes.

 

She felt like that she was still living in any kind of dream as seeing the person safe nd sound in front of her eyes whom she was on the verge of losing all safe nd fine is not less than a dream. But if it is a dream then she would prefer to close her eyes for forever to live in this dream where he would be in front of her eyes like this only all safe nd secure for rest of her lyf. The nightmare in which she was living till now since the tym of his accident seems to be vanished somewhere in the bright morning of reality of him being all safe nd in front of her eyes.

 

Even after knowing that he’s now not going anywhere away from her, even after knowing that God had finally bent down in front of her Love nd now will not even dare to think of taking her away from him, she’s still scared her this dream of him being in front of her eyes to be broken. With thudding heart she walked nd sat near him all the while looking at his sleeping form without blinking her lashes as if she’s afraid that he’ll vanish somewhere in thin air if she’ll blink her eyes.

 

Kab se meri saans ruki thi
Mujhe saans aayi
Mujhe saans aayi
Mujhe saans aayi

 

Her hand shivered as she extend it to touch his hand nd she let go the breath that she has been holding till now when the skin of his hand came in contact of hers making her realize that it was not her dream nd he was really in front of her eyes all safe nd fine nd as the realization dawn upon her, tears instantly made their ways out of her eyes as she kissed the back of his hand again nd again nd then all over his face madly making herself assure of his presence near him. She didn’t wiped away the tears that were flowing continuously from her eyes for she knows that these are the tears of relief nd after this she’s not going to shed them anymore, she thought as she ran her hand all over his face feeling his warm skin under her palm nd next moment she hugged him tight while crying bitterly.

 

Saans me teri saans mili toh

Mujhe saans aayi
Mujhe saans aayi

Mujhe saans aayi

 

Only she knows from what all she had went through in all those hours when she was on the verge of losing him forever. In true sense, the fear of losing him forever only had gave her this much strength to bring back his lyf from her Babaji. But now she can’t be strong anymore as now she just needs the warmth of his arms around her that had always held her protectively nd securely giving her the sense of safety. She had been strong enough all the while but now she can’t be as the feeling of What if she had lost him for forever was too strong to make her feel strong anymore. Nd hence she just keeps on hugging him tight making sure not to put pressure on his injuries as she cried silently while keeping her head on his chest above her heart listening to his calm heartbeats nd even breathing which were soothing her aching heart making her to believe that he’s near nd so close to her nd is not going anywhere away from her nd hence she just laid over there listening to the harmony of her heartbeats for while smiling amidst her tears.

Vidyut who was witnessing the whole scene from outside looked to other side wiping away the tears that had flown from his eyes without his own knowledge seeing the immense love in the eyes for a person who was his lyf but the love in her eyes is not for him but for someone else. He knows that no matter how much he denies or refuse to accept it but it’s true that Geet is head over heels in Love with Maan nd even Maan loves her or else he won’t be running behind her forgetting all about his ego when Geet was not talking to him. It could be clearly seen in both of their eyes nd Geet’s Love; it has been witnessed by everyone now after her crazy act of saving Maan’s lyf. Yet somewhere in his heart he had a deep pang that why he was not the person whom she can love beyond any limits of sanity, he thought as he clenched his fist tight to control the aching feeling of his heart unknown of the pair of eyes witnessing this state of his.

 

“Dekha Aapne, how much Geet loves Maan Jiju ?” Vidyut heard a familiar voice beside him nd as he looked at the source of voice he found Savera standing beside him looking at same scene that he has been witnessing till now.

 

“It was Geet’s Love only that Jiju was able to make through it nd is all fine now. Even doctors have realized this fact that it’s all due to the power of their love that even after such a dreadful Accident Jiju has survived or else we are on the verge of losing him.” Savera said while still fixing her gaze in front nd Vidyut just tore away his gaze from her nd looked other side not able to digest the fact.

 

“Ab tak to aap Samajh hi Gaye hoge Na Vidyut that you are having no place in Geet’s lyf. The only person who is the owner of Geet’s heart nd lyf is Maan Jiju nd will always be nd for him she can go to any extent without even caring about herself nd this even you had witnessed, isn’t it? Nd as far as Maan Jiju is concerned then he may not able to show it but he too loves her a lot may be not able to realize yet but it can be seen in his eyes.” Savera said as she diverts away her gaze from Maan nd Geet towards him who was standing speechless looking other side.

 

“Tell me while keeping your hand on your heart Do you think that Geet will ever do anything of this sort if you will be at Jiju’s place. Ask your heart Vidyut nd then answer me that do you think that Geet could walk for you on the path of burning coal to save your lyf like she did for Jiju if you would be fighting for your lyf at any point of tym. Do you still feel that you had any chance around Geet even after witnessing the heights of her Love for Jiju?” Savera interrogated as she took a keen observation on each nd every expression of Vidyut as he stood there mum while listening to her words.

 

“You got the answer, isn’t it? Nd we both know that what the answer is. Answer is that Geet will never do this for you because she had never ever loved you. The only relation she had with you is only friendship nd she respects you due to that relationship only. Maan Jiju was, is nd will always be her first nd only love nd by just you not accepting this fact won’t change this reality. no matter in what circumstances they got married but the truth is that Geet nd Jiju loves each other nd there is no place of any third person in their Lives. Go away from their Life Vidyut as you really had no place in it. Don’t force Geet to hate you to an extent where she won’t even feel the feeling of respect also for you that she had for you when you both were friend. Stop all your dirty games nd approaches nd Go far away from her nd her lyf as this is the only thing which is good for all.” Savera said while looking straight at him meaning each nd every word nd Vidyut just go away from there after listening to her without saying a word nd Savera was sure that her words did had some desired effect on her nd very soon this trouble named Vidyut will be away from the Lyf of her best friend nd Jiju, she thought as she looked inside the ward at Maan nd Geet nd then moved towards Doctor’s cabin smiling.

From Maan P.O.V:

Kuch chaand bhi tha adhura saa yun
Kuchh phiki si thi maand si roshni bhi thi
Kuchh hum bhi khushi ke saathi naa they
Kuch gham se hume aashnaai bhi thi
Kuch tum bhi boht hi door sse they
Aur kuch hum bhi majboor se they
Kuch tum ne kabhi na iqraar kiyaa
Kuch hum ko bhi parwaah naa thi
Kuchh tum me wafa ka jazba tha
Kuchh hum ko wafa manzoor nhi
Kuch tum ko chahna chaha magar
Kuchh maazi ki deewar si thi
Kuch tum jo kabhi paas aatey toh
Yeh doori shayad mit jaati
Kuchh tum jo kabhi paas aajatey to doori shayad mit jaati
Kuch hum bhi they majboor bohut
kuch tum ne kabhi izhaar na kiya

(Love you again Ange Eza for this Lovely poem Hug)

Maan gently opened his eyes after blinking it for couple of tym when he felt some weight on his chest nd the fabric of his cloth getting wet with someone’s tears nd he don’t have to look down nd see who that someone is as he could feel her by her fragrance nd moreover he knows it very well that there is only one person who could cry for him nd could go to any extent for his well being nd that person is right near him hugging him tight, he thought nd smiled at his innocent wife who seems to be have no limits meant for her when it comes to him. Ofcourse he’s well aware of her crazy act that she did two days in order to get back his lyf from God.

 

The first person of whom he had asked after gaining consciousness is Geet only nd by seeing their Blank nd worried faces nd especially Geet not being present anywhere near him when he knows that she would be the first person who will be so desperate to see him, made him realize that something is fishy. Nd finally after lots of pestering nd threatening Vicky had blurted out how she had walked bare foot to the Dargah nd how she walked on the burning coal in order to save him from his untimely death nd from what all trauma she was going through at that tym nd finally when she listened the news of his safety she sighed in relief nd then collapsed nd now admitted in the same hospital only.

 

As Maan registered each nd every word of Vicky in his mind he feel like someone is piercing his heart with thousand needles seeing the condition of the person who had crossed all the limits of sanity for him just for him. Now he realizes the meaning of that dream which had gave him strength to fight back his death as if he wouldn’t be able to do so then even Geet would have also given up her lyf for him just like he saw in his dream where she was ready to fall off the cliff nd the thought itself was enough to make him shiver till death nd his eyes instantly wanted to see his wife for whom he meant everything nd for whom she can go to any extent. Even doctors nd his own family members can’t stop him from seeing Geet when they found him struggling with the needles pierced in his hand in order to get free of the hurdle which was stopping him from seeing his wife, his Geet nd finally Doctors had to gave up in front of his stubbornness nd he had been taken to Geet’s ward on the wheelchair on the condition that he won’t spend more than 5 minutes as his body needs complete rest after such a fatal accident nd a bit exertion is not safe for him.

 

As he entered Geet’s ward his heart cried seeing Geet on a saline nd Doctor telling that her body is over exhausted nd the bristles nd wounds on her feet will take ample of tym to heal as they are too deep nd hence she has been keeping on sedatives so that she would have complete rest. Unknown to his own knowledge his eyes welled up seeing her in this state that too due to him who had till now knowingly nd unknowingly had gave her pain only. He gently caressed her forehead nd hand in which the Needle strip was pierced as if soothing her pain nd then softly kissed the back of her palm telling her how much lucky he’s to have her in his lyf nd now he’ll never ever let her down nd will cherish her for forever his lyf.

 

“Please get well soon Geet. For me just for me. I am still waiting for your punishment.” Maan said as he gently kissed her forehead before leaving her ward but not before looking at her for the last tym before leaving for his ward

 

So now here he is lyieng on the bed of his ward watching his wife adoringly who still seems to be unaware of him being awake nd watching her as she was till hugging him tight nd was crying silently. He gently wrapped his free hand around her petite body in order to hug her back making her startle with his sudden action when she felt him patting her back slowly to make her feel better nd she instantly looked at him with her teary hazels only to find him wide awake nd looking at her adoringly. Maan cradles her face from one side nd slowly wiped away the tears which were flowing continuously from her hazels while nodding his head in no looking straight nd deep in her eyes. No words seem to be needed between them as they were talking in their own language without any words. He keeps on wiping her tears with his thumb smiling as she keeps on flowing them from her eyes.

 

“Aap Theek ho Maan. You got back your consciousness. Nothing has happened to you. You are not going anywhere leaving me alone.” Geet said rather more to convince herself of him being all safe as she touched his face nd shoulders with her hands getting anxious nd Maan could see how much his wounds are paining her as it could be clearly evident on her face just like always.

 

“Geet, I am fine. I am not going anywhere leaving you alone nd will never go. Never ever.” Maan said huskily in order to calm down anxious Geet as he made her to look at him by cradling her face from one side.

 

“Did someone told you that you look like a cartoon when you cry like this.” Maan said after a while in order to lighten the atmosphere when he saw her crying continuously nd Geet pouted like a kid seeing him making fun of her.

 

“Chup! Bilkul Chup! You won’t say a word now. You had scared the hell out of me. Do you know from what all I had gone through when doctors said that you can’t… (She paused in mid not having enough courage to continue further). You know how much scared I was? I thought that I’ll lose you for forever. The thought that I’ll lose you forever has made me die thousand deaths. Aisa koi karta hai kya? Maza aata hai Na Aapko mujhe pareshaan kar ke tabhi to you were not responding to the treatments. Who told you to go at that side of the building which you also know is dangerous. See how many injuries you had got? It must be paining so much Na. You haven’t thought about me once? What if something would have happened to you then how would I have been able to live without you? Who would have held me in his arms whenever I would be feeling low or restless on something? Who would have assured me of my safety from this evil by staying by my side again nd again? To Whom I would have crib or complaint or take care of? Forget about me you know how much everyone got scared because of you. No, how would you know? You were to lyieng over here comfortably, why would you care if anyone is crying her eyes for you, if anyone is dyeing each nd every second by seeing you in this condition. Jayiye nahi Baat karoongi main Aapse. Bahut bure ho aap.” She complained cutely while wiping away her tears from the back of her palms unknown to the fact that she had almost confessed her feelings to him while Maan keeps on looking at her smiling without uttering a word listening to her complaining like a kid nd this is how Geet saw him making her more irritated seeing him smiling on her plight

 

“Why are you now smiling ha? Why are you smiling? Did I crack a joke over here?” Geet asked as she looked at him angrily nd Maan instantly stopped smiling while nodding his head for a no like a child making the most innocent face of the world.

 

“I am Sorry.” He said meekly making an innocent face after a while only to get a glare from Geet.

 

“Sorry? What Sorry ha? You think you can do mistakes nd then will say sorry nd I’ll get melt in that nd don’t make that innocent face in front of me as it won’t help. I know you don’t care for me. You don’t care if I die or…” She couldn’t continue further as Maan places his finger on her supple lips making her quiet nd she looked at him with wide eyes.

 

“Ssshhh! Chup Bilkul Chup! Never ever say that line again. I’ll not let anything happen to you ever even if I had to fight back my own death just like I did now. I really care for you a lot or else I won’t be able to fight back my death to come back to you. May be two days back I wouldn’t have able to say this that how much I care for you but now when I was on the verge of leaving this world forever then I realize that I can’t leave this world so easily as something is binding me towards it nd that something or rather to say someone is you Geet. It’s just because of you I was not able to leave this world. I realize what you meant to me when I saw you falling off the cliff. The fear of seeing you embracing the death due to me only gave me immense strength to fight back my death to save you nd tell you that how much I need you. Nd you think I don’t care for you?” Maan said as he looked deep into her eyes nd Geet just looked at him lost. She didn’t understand that what Maan meant by when he said that he saw her falling off the cliff but she could easily see the fear in his eyes of losing her, same fear which was there in her eyes too when he was fighting for his lyf.

 

“I know nothing would have happened to me until my wife is there for me to fight even from her Babaji to save my lyf without even caring about her own self, without caring about the fact that she’s pushing herself off the edge to death by every passing second. When I had such a caring nd loving wife then how could have anything happened to me. Mujhe to waapas aana hi tha Na Geet infact when did I had gone far away from you? You didn’t let me to go far away from you Geet.” Maan said softly as he slowly tucked back her curls behind her ears with his free hand while Geet was still looking at him dazed with all the love in her eyes who was looking at her back with a soft smile playing on his M- Shaped Lips.

 

Their moment of bliss broken after what seems like an eternity with the voice of Doctor who had came for check up of Maan but seeing them so lost in each other he just looked other side feeling embarrassed for intruding in their private moment nd coughed hard in order to gain their attention breaking their reverie. Both Maan nd Geet looked other side feeling embarrassed for getting caught like this nd Doctor just shaked his head as he did his check up of both Maan nd Geet nd asked them to take rest in their respective wards. But Geet was not ready to leave Maan alone at any cost hence she was being stubborn for staying at his room only even after Doctor warning her that it’s not good for her health as her wounds are yet to be healed. But Geet was not ready to buy anything as now she can’t stay away from him even for a second nd for that she won’t even care for herself. Finally it was Maan who had managed to make her understand somehow to go back to her room nd take rest with a promise that she can come to him daily for sometym to meet him but only if she promises to take good care of herself nd will get fine soon. Geet pouted listening to his condition but then finally agreed seeing no choice in front of her nd leaves back for her ward with the help of a nurse leaving Maan behind smiling at her retreating figure.

 

******************************************************

 

Next 2 weeks were like a hell for all the nurses nd Doctors of the hospital as both Maan nd Geet had made their lives difficult with their stubbornness nd especially Geet who seeks to Maan’s room by every now nd then to stay near him nd take care of him by herself much to everyone’s protest. No doubt that they were happy to see the spark in their relation but still they don’t want it on the cost of their health. Nd hence everyone was having a hard tym in keeping them away from each other so that both can take proper rest. Finally after 2 whole weeks Doctor declared that Geet’s wound are much better nd hence they can discharge her but at the same tym they had advised her to not to walk much as they are still need to have proper care for atleast whole 1 week to get them cured completely.

 

Even Maan has been got discharge much to his insistence as now he was started having feeling of nausea by staying around the atmosphere of Hospital for 2 whole weeks nd hence he badly needed to go home. Therefore Doctors had to discharge him too after making all the necessary arrangements in his home as his injuries are still Deep nd will take another 3 weeks or so to healed completely along with a nurse to take care of him which Geet refused straightaway as she herself was capable to take care of her husband ignoring to the protests of everyone even of her Bade Papa also nd hence everyone had to gave up in front of her stubbornness nd take both of them back home after completing all the necessary formalities of the discharge.

 

So now here they both are in their home, in their own room feeling so fresh nd happy but what make both of them happy more was the feeling that they both are together nd hence no one can stop them from meeting each other on the pretext of taking rest like they did in the hospital nd the mere feeling was making their hearts dancing in joy but both hid their excitement not only in front of each other but also in front of their family too. Maan use to steal her glance by every now nd then as she talks to Vicky, Annie nd Savera nd couldn’t help himself from staring at his beautiful wife who was so lost in talking to his siblings that she’s oblivious of him watching him so intently as she smiled, laugh nd blushed on their statements. He was so loving this new feeling in him for his wife. The chains that he had drawn in front of his heart seems to be vanishing away now making him realize that how slowly nd gradually she is entering in his heart breaking every barrier.

 

He loves to see her smile, he loves to see her innocent self, he loves to see her cribbing like a kid, he loves to see her Blush nd most importantly, he loves the feeling of her being near to him nd staying by his side forever. He haven’t told it to her but it is true that it is just due to her he’s alive now. he had seen the face of his parents, he had seen the face of his family members, he had seen the face of Sameera when he was approaching towards his death nd was on the verge of leaving this world forever but then Geet’s face came in front of his eyes nd he just couldn’t take that last step towards his death even if he want to even after knowing that he’s just a step away from entering the world where Sameera is but he can’t, he couldn’t not after looking into her eyes which was looking at him longingly nd hence he had to come back for her just for her. Is this is what people call ‘Love’? Is he really got ready now accept this feeling without any turmoil or doubt, he thought as he looked at Geet who was laughing nd smiling nd unknowingly his free hand stretched to push away her curls that were kissing her soft cheeks thus teasing his senses.

 

Geet sensed his burning gaze on her after a while nd then the brushing of his long fingers on her cheeks as he pushed back her curls beneath her ear nd her smile faded as she turned her head to look at him only to find him looking intently at her smiling. Nd as she looked into his eyes she found the reflection of her feelings in them crystal clear without any mist of doubt or guilt in it. She was not sure that whether what she saw in his eyes was right or once again a fragment of her imagination but her Heart fluttered nd she felt thousand butterflies running in the pit of her stomach as she found herself drowning in the intensity of those eyes which seems to penetrate through her heart. Vicky, Annie nd Savera looked to nd fro at both of them nd just shaked over their heads seeing them so lost in each other yet again nd literally had to yell out loud to bring them back in the real world making them realize that they are not the only one present in the room nd Both Maan nd Geet looked other way blushing for being caught like that giving a chance of teasing to these 3 devils. Nd it was indeed correct as these 3 devils started their leg-pulling session ignoring to the angry glare or threat Maan is giving nd Geet felt like mother earth to swallow her right then nd there but unfortunately that’s not the option nd therefore she just sat over there on the bed listening to all the teasing of the 3 devils Blushing all the while looking at Maan from the corner of her eyes who too was looking back at her from the corner of his eyes ignoring all the remarks of his siblings.

 

*****************************************************

 

It was 9 of night when everyone finally decided to retired to bed after making sure that both Maan nd Geet have their dinner nd medicines. Since Geet was allergic to allopathic medicines hence she had been taken extra care for medication. Annie though wanted to stay in their room for nite just in case they need her as both are still not recovered properly but due to Geet’s insistence she too left for her room. Geet knows how much everyone had been worried for them in these 2 weeks nd hence now she don’t want anyone to bother for them anymore nd take rest. Nd as far as Maan is concerned then she’s enough to take care of him like always as the only person he’ll listen to after Dadimaa nd to whom he won’t be stubborn is her only, she thought nd smiled on his own thought realizing how knowingly nd unknowingly she always showed his right on him nd now after reading Maan’s letter even that mist of insecurity was also not there in her heart nd she could see nd do everything clearly nd without any hesitation like she use to do before.

 

Maan was all ready to hit the bed after having his medicines when he saw Geet coming out from washroom after changing into her night dress nd he just gave a warm smile to her which she returned back while smiling faintly nd moved towards the cupboard to take out extra pair of Blanket nd Pillow much to Maan’s surprise nd he just keeps on looking at her confusingly as she arranges them properly on the couch leaving him to get confused on her sudden change of behaviour.

 

“Geet, What are you doing? I mean why are you arranging Blanket nd pillow on the couch?” He asked as he looked at her confusingly while Geet just looked other side feeling hesitant.

 

“Woh I am thinking to sleep on the couch today. Since you had got hurt nd you’ll not be able to sleep comfortably over here in this condition so I decided that you sleep on the bed only nd I’ll sleep here on the couch.” Geet replied while biting her lips in uncertainty of his behaviour nd Maan looked at her surprised. How much can she always think of him so much, he thought as he looked at her disbelievingly.

 

“Geet, you don’t need to sleep on the couch. I mean even you are not well nd moreover the effect of AC is high over there nd if you had forgotten then let me remind you that you are sensitive towards cold nd hence you won’t be able to sleep properly over there.” Maan said as a matter of fact to which Geet just smiled slightly seeing him caring for her just like before. Seems like everything is falling back to normal in their relationship, she thought as she looked at him innocently.

 

“No that won’t be a problem. I mean I had taken extra Blanket with me so it’ll be fine.” Geet said while looking down knowing very well that it’s all a lie as she is hell sensitive towards cold

 

“Geet, had you planned that you won’t listen to me without arguing for once? No Na. Then just listen to what I am saying nd don’t sleep on the couch. Nd if anyone will sleep over there then it’s me not you.” He said as he tried to get up from the bed while Geet looked at him shocked

 

“Maan, what are you doing? Pagal ho gaye ho kya aap? Doctor had told you complete bed rest nd here you are all ready to move on the couch.” Geet said as she rushed towards him stopping him from coming out from the blanket.

 

“Geet I am much better now nd don’t worry I can manage on couch. It won’t bother me much. You sleep over here on the bed nd I’ll sleep on the couch like always.” Maan said as he once again tried to get up only to be stopped by Geet yet again.

 

“You can’t even walk to washroom properly, your hand is fractured, there is plaster on most of the parts of your Body nd you are planning to sleep on couch. No way I am going to let you do that. I am going to sleep on couch nd that’s final. No argument on that.” Geet said as she points her finger towards nd Maan was so delighted to see his sherni Geet back. Oops! Did he just mention ‘his Geet’, he thought as he smiled inwardly on his own thought.

 

“Geet, same goes for you too. Even your feet are not healed totally yet so don’t argue unnecessarily. It’s finally decided that I’ll sleep on the couch nd you will sleep on the bed.”

 

“Maan, that’s what I am saying that there’s no need to argue unnecessarily. I’ll sleep on the couch nd you’ll sleep on the bed.”

 

“Geet, I said I’ll sleep on the couch nd that’s final.”

 

“Maan even I am also saying that I’ll sleep on the couch nd you’ll sleep on the bed nd it’s total final now.”

 

“Acha Theek hai to fir hum dono hi…” Maan left his sentence in mid realizing what he was going to say when he saw Geet’s flushed face nd her looking other way feeling hesitant

 

[Ok fine then we’ll both…]

 

“I mean we both can share the bed. I mean since we both are not well so it won’t be good for any of us to sleep on the couch. Nd anyways the Bed is big enough to be shared by us. We both can sleep over here comfortably without any difficulty. So…” Maan said hesitantly looking everywhere but her nd Geet rubbed her palms feeling nervous. Just his presence around her is enough to make her lose her senses how will she able to sleep beside him comfortably for whole night; she thought as she bit her lower lip in anticipation making Maan to face a hard tym in controlling his desire of feeling those petals against his nd he just looked other side in order to get control on himself for now atleast.

 

“But Maan woh…” Geet tried to protest only to be interrupted by Maan.

 

“Geet now no more argument on this. It’s decided now. Now come nd get some sleep as you still needs to take rest for atleast whole 1 week.” Maan interrupted her in between before she could start her another round of protesting to which Geet just nodded her head innocently nd hesitantly moved to the other side of the bed. Maan puts the wall of cushions between them so as to not to make her feel uncomfortable near him before eyeing Geet to lay down on bed which she did like an obedient child while still trying to control her erratic heartbeats which was beating so fast just by the thought of sleeping beside him whole night.

 

“Good night Geet. Sweet dreams.” Maan said as he tucked her inside the blanket with a soft smile playing on his lips.

 

“Good night Maan. Sweet dreams.” Geet said as she sat up before helping Maan to lay comfortably on the bed making sure not to hurt his injuries nd tucking him inside the blanket securely.

 

“Geet, you had done enough sacrifices for me but now I won’t let you do anymore sacrifices then be it sleeping on the couch also for me. Now when I am trying to move on in my lyf with you then I don’t want to repeat all those mistakes that I did earlier. Now there will be no sacrifices from your side for me as now it’s my turn to do everything to keep you happy nd I’ll Geet. I Promise that I’ll do everything which I can nd even which I can’t to keep you happy nd won’t do any kind of injustice with you. I just want to see you happy Geet nd for that I’ll try my best to accept my feelings completely nd give you all the rights you deserve.” Maan thought as he looked at her angelic face nd beautiful hazels with a soft smile playing on his lips who was looking back at him with all the love in her eyes while smiling sweetly.

 

“Maan, now I’ll only do the thing which will give you happiness. For sometym I got blind in the mist of my fears nd insecurities nd hence started having lots of expectations from you. But now after reading your letter I realize that how much you had suffered in your turmoil. Nd after the tym when I was on the verge of losing you forever I realize that how empty my lyf would be without your mere presence. You will be in front of my eyes, will stay with me for whole of my lyf; this is only enough for me. I can wait till eternity for you to accept me nd make me as yours completely with all your heart nd Love. Now I won’t keep any expectations from you nd just keeps on loving you unconditionally like I was doing till now without expecting anything in return just like Maa use to do for Papa. I only want to see you happy Maan nd I can wait for whole of my lyf for you to love me back nd even after that. Nothing is more important for me than your happiness Maan nd for that I can go to nay extent nd can even destroy myself.” Geet thought as he keeps on looking at Maan lovingly who too was looking back at her feeling contented to have her close to him as they both drifted into the world of peaceful slumber while looking at each other waiting for the new day to arrive with new beginnings in their lives

It was past midnight when Geet felt a hand snaking around her waist nd her eyes jerked open as she recognize the warmth nd touch of the person to whom that hand belongs nd she just tucked in her tummy when she felt him pulling her closer to him such that her back was touching his taut chest. Geet clutched the sheets tight in her fist while closing her eyes when she felt his warm breath burning the soft skin of her neck as he nuzzled in her neck tracing it with his nose nd her lips parted on her own accord as she suddenly felt short of breath due to the sweet torture of her husband as he caressed her belly sensuously above her kurti while his nose was sensuously making patterns  on the soft skin of her neck nd before she could understand anything she found him turning her on her back so that she could face him nd as she looked in his dark eyes she forget her entire being nd all she could remember or feel is him nd his touch as he caressed her face sensuously with his long fingers.

 

“Maan” Geet whispered rather moaned as she felt a shiver throughout her body seeing the intensity of his dark orbs nd his sensual caress were not helping either as he pushed back the hair strands from her face while blowing his warm breath all over her face burning her in the flames of desire.

 

“Ssshhh!! Don’t say anything Geet. Just feel this moment between us.” Maan huskily whispered as he placed his finger on her lips feeling the softness of those petals under his finger.

 

Maan looked at the epitome of beauty nd innocence lyieng beside him nd her closed eyes nd quivering lips told that how much affected she is with his single touch. He slowly hovers over her making sure not to put pressure on his fractured hand nd gently placed a kiss on her forehead expressing his unsaid love for her before placing kisses on her each eye which are the mirror of her soul before moving down nd brushing his lips on her soft petals. Geet’s hands travelled from his biceps to his shoulders nd finally encircling around his neck making sure not to hurt his injured hand nd other wounds as he placed the trail of kisses along her jaw line proceeding towards the sensitive spot behind her ear kissing nd sucking it before he comes down to feast the milky white of her neck.

 

“Maan” Geet moaned out his name loud as he bites the soft skin of her throat nd she just arched her head back giving him more access while her fingers threaded in his hairs pulling him closer if possible.

 

Her moans were only unleashing the beast in him as he harshly bites nd sucks the skin of her throat nd collarbone making her to moan out loud uncontrollably due to pleasure. Maan could feel her chest heaving up nd down against him nd he could easily feel her buds getting hardened poking to his chest from the cloth which was just arousing him more nd more unleashing the animal in him as he continues to mark the area of her cleavage nd collarbone with his love. He loves the way her body is reacting to his touch but what surprised him most was the way his body is reacting to her soft touches as he could feel himself getting hardened nd he was sure that Geet must have felt it too. But inspite of feeling guilty or regret he was loving this feeling of her being so close to him.

 

Not even for a fraction of second he had this thought in his mind that he’s doing something wrong infact after seeing her reacting to his touch nd the way she’s melting with his each nd every move makes him realize that nothing could be more perfect than this. it seems that this tym both his heart nd mind has agreed to the same fact nd it is that she’s the one meant for him like he’s the one who is meant for her. Today not only his heart but his mind has also accepted the fact that the feeling he feels for Geet is not lust neither it’s just a physical attraction. It is something strong, something pure, Something called ‘Love’

 

“Ohhh Geet!” Maan groaned in utter pleasure as he felt her caressing the skin of his abs nd chest beneath his vest nd as a result he bites the swell of her curve hard making her to moan out his name loud.

 

Maan came over her face only to find her eyes closed nd lips parted in anticipation, waiting for his to meet. He keeps on looking at her angelic face nd then those full luscious lips longingly as if seeking her permission before quenching both his ns hers thirst. Geet gently opened her eyes when she felt his warm breath on her lips from quiet a long tym only to find him looking longingly at her lips then her eyes nd she understood what he wanted nd she just closed her eyes extending her face towards him giving him the needed permission submitting herself to the person whom she belongs. And next moment Maan just slammed his lips on hers relishing each nd every inch of her soft petals while Geet responded back with the equal fervour as she clutched his hairs tight in her tiny fist while holding his face from other hand as she sucked nd nibbled his lips passionately.

 

This kiss was different than the one they did that night as there was no more turmoil, no more confusion from either side nd what all was present is the their mutual love nd surrender to each other. It was passionate yet loving. Maan sucked, nibbled nd bite on her lower lip while his tongue traces the outline of her lips before his teeth tugging at her lower lip hard making her gasp giving his tongue the needed entry to relish the sweet nectar of her mouth while his hand was busy caressing the smooth skin of her belly underneath her kurti making her arch her back more nd more with his touch nd thus deepening the kiss. Their tongues fought, danced nd twist on their own accord as their lips moves smoothly over each other relishing the feel of each other.

 

They broke apart after what seems like eternity to take breath nd Maan just dipped his face in the crook of her neck panting heavily seeking the solace of his warmth nd love. His hand on its own accord moved beneath her towards the zipper of her kurti nd Geet took a sharp intake of breath when she found him removing his kurti from her shoulders after opening the zipper nd her head fell back ward on the anticipation of what coming next while breathing heavily as his lips once again began to feast the soft skin that he had just exposed while removing the Kurti away from her body completely to explore her hidden possession which was just meant to be explore by him, just by him. Geet just hugged Maan tight hiding herself from him in him only when she felt his raw touch on her curves over the flimsy material of her inner as he caressed, squeezed nd kneaded her curves in his large palms over her inner.

 

“Make me yours Maan, completely. For forever” Geet whispered in his ears as his hand opens the hook to remove that thin barrier between them nd relish the angelic beauty of his wife, his Geet while placing a deep kiss on her breast right above her heart expressing both his desire nd love for her before removing that thin barrier completely.

 

Maan jerked open his eyes panting heavily nd looked around himself only to find him still lyieng on his back on his side while Geet was sleeping beside him peacefully. His pupils moved to nd fro restlessly as he breathed heavily while recollecting his dream nd he just gulped down his saliva as he felt himself all aroused. He turned his head sideways only to see Geet sleeping in the same position that he saw in his dream i.e. facing his back to her nd he just let put a deep sigh as he realized that it was all his dream just his dream.

 

But on a second thought why had he dreamt of Geet like this. He had never ever seen any dream regarding her like this not even then when that moment was transpired between them that night. Then what happen all of a sudden that he’s dreaming like this. Was it because today Geet was sleeping beside him but that won’t be the reason as he had slept like this before also that too holding her in his arms but he haven’t saw such erotic dream like what he saw now. Geet’s aroma hits his nostrils as he took a sharp intake of breath making him go all hard once again nd he just closed his eyes tight in order to get a grip over his overflowing desires.

 

But strangely he didn’t felt regretted for having such an erotic dream or thought. He waited for that feeling of guilt to hit him for having such dream for Geet just like it did that night but that didn’t come instead he felt more contended nd peaceful than he feels any other day. It was then he realize that even in his dream also he haven’t felt any feeling of lust or physical attraction towards her nd what he felt was something strong, something pure just like her hear. But still is it right to have such erotic thoughts for her when he had not accepted his feelings to himself completely, he thought as he closed his eyes while taking a deep breath when the images of his dream has once again started to haunt him thus making him all aroused nd he felt a dire need of water to quench his parched throat along with calming down his thudding heart nd overflowing desires. Therefore he just tries to get up from the bed to get the water from the side table making sure not to disturb Geet’s sleep but it was really difficult for him to get up easily as his wounds nd especially his fractured hand was making him moan in pain again nd again.

 

Geet stirred in her sleep when she heard Maan moaning in pain nd she was not in that deep sleep anyways that she couldn’t sense his pain. His pain was something that could even wake her up from her death bed then here she was just in a light sleep. She blinked her eyes couple of tymes only to realize that he was indeed moaning in pain nd as the realization hits her she instantly gets up in the sitting position while switching on the lights to look up at him only to find him trying to get up on his own.

 

“Maan! What Happen? You need something?” Geet asked as she immediately rushed to his side to help him in getting up.

 

“Geet, I am fine. I just need some water.” Maan said as he once again tries to get up on his only to hiss in pain yet again.

 

“So why didn’t you wake me up Maan? I was sleeping beside you only, you should have asked me. Wait! Let me help you.” Geet said as she held Maan’s shoulders to help him while cursing herself for not sensing his difficulty before.

 

Maan’s face brushed on Geet’s curves while his lips while his lips gently brushed on the exposed part of her cleavage in the course of Geet helping him to get up nd he felt an electrifying sensation running throughout his body nd he just close his eyes feeling her so close to him nd her sensuous fragrance hitting his nostrils thus teasing his senses nd once again all the images of his dreams started to flash in front of his eyes seeing her angelic face so close to him nd he just clenched his jaw nd fist tight to control his desires. Will she react to his touches in the same way if he do that in real like she did in his dream, will the skin of her body feel as soft as it felt wen he had touched her for the first tym, when he had touched her in his dream, will their lips move as passionately against each other as they did in his dream, he thought as he inhales her mesmerizing aroma of her body.

 

Be it any another day then he would have felt guilty for having such erotic thoughts but today everything feels so perfect, so right. May be because today he realized that the feeling between them is something strong nd pure nd not just lust or physical attraction. What he was not able to do is to give a name to this feeling which was pulling him more nd more towards her. The air around him was thick with her proximity thus preventing him to think anything rational nd sane or may be he don’t want to think as all he could think of is her nd their proximity as he had accepted it long back that whatever it is between them is not wrong nd everything is just perfect.

 

Unknown to the storm going in Maan’s heart Geet was busy helping him to get up. Be it would some other day then she too must have felt the same shivering in her body that Maan had felt when his face nd lips had brushed her body but at this moment her whole concentration was in to help Maan nd hence she couldn’t realize what just has happened between them nd how hard it is getting for her husband to control himself nd his overflowing desires for her. She gently helped Maan to get up in sitting position nd placed pillow behind him to give him support nd once again Maan inhales the same sensuous aroma of hers which was now driving him crazy as he dipped his face in the crook of her neck nd the soft nd warm skin of her neck tempted him to taste it but before he could do anything he found Geet drawing her face back after setting the pillows behind him nd sat in front of him before helping him to have some water thus bringing him out from the world of his desires.

 

Maan’s eyes was just fixed on her face which was so restless nd concerned seeing his state as he took the sips of water nd he just couldn’t help himself from feeling the luckiest person of this world who had someone beside him for whom he’s so important nd special, so much that she will be ready to embrace even death also if it costs his well being. He could easily guess what’s running in her mind by seeing at her facial expression nd most importantly her expressive hazels thus he could easily guess that she’s worried nd on the verge of crying seeing him in pain but was just holding back her tears for his sake. The frown on her forehead nd that almost inaudible flinch seeing him hissing even for a nanosecond had said it all to him that how much he matters to her.

 

He still can’t believe his luck which is giving him back all those happiness once again that he had lost once infact he’s getting more than what he lost in the form of Geet, his heart reminded him as he looked at Geet intently who was now keeping the glass back at the table. May be this is the perfect tym, may be this is the perfect moment where he could think of weaving new dreams for his future with her, where he could think of living once again, Where he could demolish those boundaries around his heart completely which were already broken, where he could give himself nd their relationship a chance. May be this is the perfect tym when he can finally listen to his heart which was screaming out loud that he too can fall in love once again or maybe he had already fallen in love nd was just still a bit hesitant to accept this feeling as love, Maan thought as he looked at Geet who was looking back at him with a sweet smile.

 

“Feeling better now.” Geet asked softly as she looked at him concerned nd Maan just nodded his head in affirmation while smiling slightly knowing that he’s feeling far than better.

 

“Why you didn’t wake me up Maan when you are feeling so much uncomfortable. You know Na how deep your injuries are nd doctors has strictly said that you shouldn’t exert your body much. What if you got hurt? You Na never listen to anyone in front of yourself. I am telling you��.” She couldn’t continue further as Maan kept his finger on her lips thus halting her ranting.

 

“Chup! Bilkul Chup! I am absolutely fine. Nothing has happened to me. So now you also stop panicking. Hhmmm” Maan said in his baritone voice as he placed his finger on her lips silencing her nd Geet just nodded innocently feeling a shiver down her spine with the feel of his finger on her supple lips as he gulped the lump that has just formed in her throat to hide her nervousness from him. Maan removed his finger from her lips after a while caressing the softness of her petals in the process nd each nd every cell of his body burned in desire to feel that softness against his.

 

“Maan, you are sweating.” Geet whispered in a worry as she saw sweat beads on Maan’s forehead nd this is when Maan realized that he was sweating too after having such an erotic dream.

 

“Maan, Why are you sweating this much? AC to is on full yet you are sweating. Aapki Tabiyat to theek hai Na? I’ll just call to Doctor, No first I’ll call Vicky or Dev, Haan.” Geet ranted as she kept his palm on Maan’s forehead to check if he’s having temperature while Maan just rolled over his eyes seeing her getting so much hyper. Now how would he going to make his naive wife understand that why he was sweating this much. How is he going to make her understand that he’s sweating not because he’s not fine but because of his erotic dream for her, he thought as he saw Geet getting up from bed to go towards the door nd Maan instantly holds her wrist to stop her from going while Geet just looked at him confused.

 

“Geet, I am absolutely fine. There’s no need to make everyone worry for me. So just take a deep breath nd calm down.” Maan said as he pulled her slightly towards him making her to sit back on bed.

 

“But��.” She tried to say something but one glare of Maan nd she instantly shuts up her mouth while pouting cutely making Maan to chuckle cutely at this cute antic of his wife.

 

“Geet I wanted to say something.” Maan said softly after a while as he gently holds her hand in his nd Geet’s breath got hitched in her throat as she looked at his hold on her hand nd then back in his eyes which were showing some different emotions than what she use to see before, something which seems to be the reflection of her own feelings but she don’t know whether she’s right in thinking this or wrong nd she could only nod her head in affirmation asking him to continue further when she was having goosebumps all over her body due to Maan softly caressing the skin of the back of her palm with his thumb.

 

“Geet, it’s the thing that I wanted to say from so many days but with the turn of events we were not able to see each other properly then forget about talking. Geet, I just wanted to say that�� (He closed his eyes for a while nd took a deep breath before continuing) that I am sorry Geet for whatever happened between us till now ns especially in those 2 months.” Maan said genuinely as he looked deep into her eyes nd Geet just looked at him in shock nd surprise.

 

“Maan ye Aap��”

 

“No Geet let me speak today. I know you can’t see me in guilt nd I also know that you had forgiven me also after reading my letter but still there are lots of things which I wanted to say face to face nd I won’t be in peace until I lighten my heart. Please let me say my heart today.” Maan interrupted in between as he looked at her pleadingly nd Geet just nodded her head indicating him to continue further.

 

“Geet, we both know in what circumstances we got married nd this also we both know that we tried our best to keep this marriage working especially you; but somewhere something has failed nd this failure was from my side Geet. I had failed not once, not twice but many times. I failed to understand the reason of you sitting outside KM waiting for me than to shout at you for not going inside or inform me, I fail to understand what you were feeling when that moment transpired between us than to distance myself from you, I failed to see your innocence in your eyes when you were trying to say that you didn’t do those renovations than to blame you for it, And Geet I failed to notice all those big nd small acts of mine which were though correct according to me but they were pushing you in the pit of insecureness by every passing moment. And I know that no matter how many tymes I apologize for it but it won’t change the fact that though unknowingly I had always disappointed you.

 

You had given your 100 % in our marriage but I failed to do that. But I haven’t done all this intentionally. I was just trying to save you from getting hurt due to me as I don’t want to give you any kind of false hopes due to my behaviour but I didn’t realize that I had ended up in hurting you even more. And I wouldn’t have even realized it also if you haven’t spoken your heart that day. In true sense, it was then I realize the intensity of my actions nd I am truly Sorry for that Geet. I am sorry for hurting an Angel like you nd may be the state in which I am today was the punishment I got from god for hurting you. But I want your punishment Geet. I want you to punish me in whatever way you want after that only I’ll get some peace but Geet please don’t be aloof around me like you were in those 6 days as a punishment for me because I won’t be able to bear it Geet.

 

You know Geet in those 6 days when you were not talking to me, was being aloof around me, I realize that how empty my lyf is with your indifference. It was then I realize that your laughter, your smile, your cute antics, you innocent yet mature talks, everything about you had became my necessity, YOU had became my necessity.  Yes Geet, its true, I don’t know when at which moment but you had became an integral part of my lyf nd I was afraid to call this feeling as Love as I had always believed that Love can happen only once nd I had done that Love with Sameera then how can I Love you. But Everytym my heart denied my ideologies while my mind reminds me of the promise that I made to you when we met for the first tym that there won’t be any other girl in my lyf nd heart apart from Sameera nd I felt more nd more stuck up in this fight between my heart nd mind where I was losing from both the sides nd in this turmoil only I ended up in hurting you nd I can never be able to forgive myself. Never ever.

 

But still I am asking your forgiveness nd I am ready to bear any punishment as I am your main culprit Geet. No matter in whatsoever circumstances we got married but today’s reality is that our marriage is not a compromise neither you are any kind of responsibility or burden for me. Our marriage nd our relationship has gone far beyond compromise nd this I realized when you had distanced yourself from me. Geet I am tired now. I am tired from running away from myself; I am tired by Everytym denying these feelings that I am having for you. I wanted to move on with you, to give our relationship a chance, to give myself a chance but here at this point of tym I am unable to do so though I am trying hard but still I need sometym. I know that I may not be a perfect husband but I promise Geet that I’ll try my best to be a good husband. And trust me Geet, I am trying hard; I am trying my best to accept my feelings completely, I am trying my best to give these feelings a name, I am trying my best to move on with you.

 

Geet all I want from you is some tym nd some trust. Can you give me that Geet? Can we forget all those things that happened between us in past months nd start a fresh? Can you trust me enough once again to prove myself as a worthy husband to you? Can you forgive me for all my stupid acts that had hurted you? Can you give me one chance to fix all those things that were spoiled by me? Can you be my companion in this journey of mine like you always were? Can you?” Maan pour out his heart all the while looking deep into her eyes meaning each nd every word he uttered while Geet just looked at him speechless.

 

This is for the first tym he had opened his heart in front of her. Though he had done it before too but it was through letter nd now he was saying everything face to face where she could easily observe his each nd every expression right from his remorse to his helplessness to his wish to move on with her to his pleading for that one chance, for her just little support; that genuineness in his eyes, when he had said those words everything has touched Geet deep in her heart nd her love for him increased 10 folds after seeing him confessing his inner turmoil to her. This is what she always wished in their relationship since the tym she realized her feelings for him, to be his companion in each nd every step of his lyf no matter how thorny the path is nd today when he’s asking her to be his companion then how can she refuse to it. No, she can never ever refuse to him for anything even if he asks for her lyf then here he’s asking only some trust, some tym from her then how can she not give him that. She looked at his hold on her hands then back at him only to find him looking back at her expectantly nd at that very moment she knows what she has to do.

 

“Maan” she softly whispered as she called out his name breaking his trance who was looking at her unblinkingly.

 

“Maan, you don’t have to feel guilty for anything. I mean ya I know I was hurt in those past months with your behaviour but then after reading Ur letter I realize that it was not completely your fault. The stage in which you were; fighting between your heart nd mind every moment, it was obvious for you to react in this way. I won’t lie Maan but yes I was badly hurted by your words that night when you had accused me nd that’s the reason I had distanced myself from you because I was afraid for anymore heartbreaks from you. But that day when I read your letter I realized that how much turmoil you were facing. If I was in pain over here then even you were not happy. You were burning in your own miseries nd my behaviour in those 6 days had just added fuel to the fire but still you were trying to bring me back to normal while all I was doing is to turn down all your attempts in the daze of my fears, my insecurities.

 

It was then after reading your letter I realize that how tough it is getting for you to accept this change in our relationship, to move on in your lyf after losing your first Love. I had decided then only Maan that I’ll give you whatever amount of tym you wanted even if it is for whole of my lyftym but I will never force you for anything nd will wait for you to accept our relationship with all your heart. This is what I had decided since the tym we got married but I don’t know how I got distracted by my way nd ended up in hurting you in the course of saving myself from getting hurt more. But now at this moment if I give everything a thought then I realize that it was neither your mistake nor mine. The circumstances in which we got married nd the change in our relationship followed after that had brought us here where we are today.

 

But now from this moment I want to forget everything that happened between us in past nd start afresh. There’s no use to mull over what happened in past so please you also don’t feel guilty of whatever happened between us. Maan I don’t know what is stored in future; I don’t know that tomorrow’s sun will bring what change in our relationship all I know is that I want to live my present with you. I want to live in the moments which I spend with you in present rather than thinking about our future. We had wasted enough tym in hurting each other nd then regretting over it but now I want our relationship to start as afresh. Let’s be friends just like we were before our marriage. “No complaints no demands.” Remember even Ranbir has said it” Geet said as she winked at the last line making Maan to chuckle realizing that she’s saying the dialogue of his favourite Ranbir Kapoor’s movie to lighten the emotional air between them.

 

“So let’s just start it all over again. Hi I am Geet Handa oops Khurana. I am Geet Maan Singh Khurana, Mujhse Dosti Karoge” Geet said as she forwarded her hand towards him offering him her friendship nd Maan just keeps on looking at her for a moment before holding her forwarded hand in his while giving her a warm smile accepting her friendship.

 

Is she the same girl who has a big nd uncanny mouth when he had met her for the first tym? Is she the same girl who was sulking big tym because her sister had not told her about her love interest? Is she the same girl who had always shown her attitude to him, who was childish in her every act, Maan thought as he looked at her smiling face while still holding her hand. No she’s not that Geet whom he had met for the first tym. She’s the girl who had sacrificed her dreams for just one wish of her sister, she’s the girl who had transformed herself from the childish girl to a mature woman, she’s the girl for whom his well being matters the most than of hers, she’s the girl who had forgiven him so easily without giving any punishment, who has eased the emotional situation between them with her cute proposal. It was then he realized that she had transformed herself so much that now he feels that had he ever known her? How maturely nd easily he had freed him from his guilt. He didn’t missed the pride on her face when she had introduced herself as Geet Maan Singh Khurana, it was as if her whole world resides in him only. The only thing that still remained unchanged in her is her innocence nd her expressive hazels nd this is what makes her different from every other girl nd he’s proud of the fact that this innocent, cute, mature nd childish woman belongs to him for whole of his lyftym nd he’ll make sure that he’ll never ever hurt her in future, he thought as he looked at her unblinkingly while grasping her hand firmly in his unaware of the fact that how his simple touch is sending shivers in Geet’s body yet she’s trying her best to not to show him the crimson red color of her cheeks due to his intense gaze.

 

“Maan, my hand” Geet softly whispered after sometym when it becomes difficult for her to control herself from not hugging him tight breaking Maan’s reverie nd he instantly lefts her hand looking other side giving both of them ample of tym to compose herself

 

“Waise don’t think that I won’t give you your punishment. You still owe your punishment from me.” Geet said as sternly as she could while trying her best to control her laugh seeing Maan’s perplexed face but it was soon replaced by a smirk as he realized her naughtiness in order to lighten the atmosphere

 

“Hhmmm so in that case what would be my punishment your highness?” Maan said as he looked at her smirking nd for a moment Geet forgot to breath seeing his killer smirk.

 

“That I’ll tell you but not now. I’ll tell you when the tym will come nd you have to accept that.” Geet said as she pointed her finger on him almost warning him making him chuckle out loud.

 

“Sure Ma’am. Your wish my command” Maan said as he bowed his head in front of her before both of them burst out in the fit of laughter.

 

“Ok I think we had done enough of talking for tonight. Let’s get back to sleep or else tomorrow Doctor will strangle me for not taking care of yours.” Geet said as she tries to subside her laughter realizing that its really very late nd Maan needs proper rest before getting up from bed to help him in laying down.

 

“Geet.” she heard his hoarse voice nd felt a tug on her wrist before she could get up from bed nd as she looked at him her heart stirred seeing the intensity of his eyes.

 

“Can I hug you?” Maan whispered hoarsely nd for some reasons Geet felt her entire being numb seeing the intensity of emotions in his eyes nd his baritone voice didn’t helped either. All she could do is to smile faintly while nodding her head in acceptance nd next moment she was cocooned in his embrace as he wrapped his free arm firmly yet protectively around her petite form.

 

“Thanks for being there in my lyf Geet.” Maan whispered in her ear as he held her close to him while closing his eyes relishing the feeling of having her in his arms so close to his heart.

 

“I’ll be always there with you Maan. For forever. No matter what.” She replied softly as she rested her head close to his heart while closing her eyes seeking the solace of his embrace submitting her entire being to him not only for this lyftym but for every lyftym.

 

 

He sat in his room on the chair while rotating the paper weight on the table lost in some deep thoughts. When the whole world is sleeping peacefully then he, Captain Vidyut Singh Shekhawat is all awake pondering over his own thoughts for his sleep was long evaded due to the war he has been facing between his heart nd mind. Where his mind was not ready to accept his defeat so easily by losing his only love to someone else; his heart was constantly reminding him that, that someone else’ is none other than his own best friend nd the girl whom he claims to Love doesn’t loves him back nd is happy in her married lyf thus he stands no chance in her lyf now. Savera’s words rand in his mind that she said to him in hospital making him realize that he never had any chance around her.

 

He was not blind to notice the extent of Geet’s love for Maan such that she was ready to destroy her own self neither he failed to notice Maan’s eyes which use to look at Geet ever so lovingly nor did he overlooked the restlessness that they both had to see each other in the hospital. Then was it really he who was trying to act blind by closing his eyes all this while to prevent himself from facing the reality. Even a dumb person could say that how irrecoverably they both are in love with each other then why is it getting difficult for him to accept the reality, he thought as he looked at Geet’s photo in his hand. His ego was not letting him to lose so easily. Captain Vidyut Sing Shekhawat has always got what he wanted then how can he lose his only love but then his heat reminded him that he’s still a human nd hence he can’t behave like a beast to snatch the happiness of his only love that though not lies in him but in someone else’ nd he can’t make her love him forcefully.

 

His grip on paper weight gets tighten as he gulped down the lump form in his throat in order to stop those unshed tears that were burning his eyes from falling down as all the moments of Maan nd Geet’s togetherness reeled in front of his eyes making his heart aching with utmost agony nd finally the paper weight in his hand meet its destiny as it crashed into the mirror shattering into million pieces just like his heart depicting its pain. His heart was not in peace neither did his mind nd he don’t know what should he do to get that peace. But he really need to do something before this fire of hatred nd jealousy inside him burns him making him leave with nothing but the ashes of his own self.

 

******************************************************************

 

As the morning rays hits the sky Maan opened his eyes after blinking it couple of tymes to adjust with the sunrays peeping from the curtain forcing his eyes to open nd welcome the new day in his lyf. His eyes turned to look at Geet only to witness the most beautiful sight of her sleeping beside him while holding his hand close to her gently yet firmly nd he himself was laying too close to her such that his head was almost touching hers.

 

 

Her gentle yet firm hold on his hand gave him a sense of contentment that he never felt before. The boundary of cushions that lay between them seems to do nothing from coming them close nd here he thought that it’ll help him to keep some distance between them until he accepts his feeling completely, Maan thought nd softly chuckled at his own thought as his eyes takes in each nd every feature of her beautiful face drinking her beauty from his eyes.

His mind went back to their conversation last nite followed by their hug making him realize that how needed it was for him to open up to her confessing all his inner turmoil but what made him happy was the way she understood his each nd every turmoil nd forgiven him for all his mistakes. Can he ever be so lucky to have someone like her in his lyf, he thought as he remembered their hug where she promised him to be with him always for forever. Though it was not their first hug for they had hugged each other numerous tymes before but still the goosebumps that he was feeling right now in all over his body, he had not felt it before thus making him realize that he’s falling hard for his innocent wife, he thought as he gently blows away the loose strand from her face that were disturbing her sleep nd blocking his view respectively.

 

“Maan” Geet softly whispered his name in her sleep with a sweet smile as she felt his hot breathe on her face making Maan to smile widely seeing her recognizing him even in her deep sleep as he just keeps on looking at her unblinkingly.

 

Geet blink her eyes couple of tymes before opening them only to see her most cherished dream, her Maan in front of her eyes looking at her ever so lovingly with that soft smile tugging on his M-shaped lips. Her morning can never be more perfect than this where the very first thing that she could see is the face of her lyf, her Maan in front of her eyes looking at her with all the love. God knows how many tymes she had dreamt of this moment nd now when it had became a reality then she’s not able to differentiate between her dream nd reality. She chuckled softly as she shaked her head on her stupidity of once again thinking her dream turning into reality. Unknown to herself her hand moved towards Maan’s face as she cradled his face caressing his cheeks with her fingers feeling his stubble under her fingertips trying to live her dream while looking at him lost with the soft smile playing on her lips.

 

Maan closed his eyes nd a soft groan escaped his lips as he felt her innocent yet sensuous touch on his skin while her fingers brushing his lips thus evoking new desires in him, desire to love her endlessly. At that moment all he wants is to crush her in his embrace forever feeling her in every way possible. May be he would have done it also if his one hand would not be in sling while other in Geet’s grip. Thus all he could do at that moment was to tilt his head a little brushing his lips to her fingertips before placing a soft yet deep kiss on her palm expressing his desires for her. Not for once did he felt regretted or guilty for his gesture like he use to feel before. It was like there was a kind of veil between them till now which has been removed last night nd now he could see everything clear nd perfect.

 

Geet who was till now was lost in living her dream unknown of her effect on her husband jolted back into reality when she felt the feel of Maan’s lips on her palm making her realize that it was not her dream but a beautiful reality where Maan is really lyieng beside her so close while looking at her lovingly. The moment of which she had always dreamt of is actually happening in real nd as the realization dawned upon her, her eyes widens in surprise nd she instantly tries to get up but then she couldn’t as Maan held her hand firmly in his not wanting her to go away from him. He don’t know what’s happening to him or may be he knows but whatever it is he don’t want her to go away. He just wanted her to be in front of his eyes. The feeling that he was feeling right now seems to be so familiar yet so alien nd all he want at that moment is to drown deep in the ocean of these beautiful feelings.

 

Geet’s shocked nd surprised hazels met his dark ones nd she felt her breath getting hitched in her throat as she saw the intensity of his dark orbs. At that very moment she realized that something has changed in him especially after last night when he had hugged her. She looked into his eyes deep only to find the reflection of her feelings in them nd the mere realization made her heart skipped million beats as she tried hard to believe that whatever she is witnessing is reality nd not her dream. The feelings, the Love that she always wanted to see in his eyes were there today, it was just a glimpse or may be fully, she couldn’t decide upon it yet but whatever it is it had gave a new zeal to her hope that soon Maan will reciprocate her Love nd will give their relationship a chance. She remembered their conversation last night where he had confessed his turmoil making her realize that her decision of giving him enough tym to let him open the door of his heart was indeed correct nd very soon Maan will give her, her special place not only in his heart but also in his lyf nd the mere thought was enough to make her smile as she looked at Maan lovingly who was already looking at her with utmost intensity trying to read the language of her eyes.

 

“When did you wake up?” She finally whispered after coming out from the spell of her husband somehow.

 

“When you were lost deep in your dream world” He answered back huskily while still gazing her unblinkingly making her feel shy with his burning gaze.

 

“You should have woke me up.” Geet said as she lowers down her lashes feeling shy to even look into his intense eyes.

 

“Nah�. I couldn’t afford to miss the opportunity to adore ‘my’ Sleeping beauty when she was so blissfully lost in her dream world.” Maan whispered huskily as he takes in every feature of her beautiful face with his eyes making Geet to turn into the darkest shade of red just with the mere mention of word ‘My’ from his lips for her probably for the first tym.

 

“You know something; you really look beautiful with that blush of yours.” Maan said as he looked at her lovingly while his hands itched to caress those blushing cheeks of hers making Geet to shy even more as she looked at him through her hooded lashes surprisingly. This is probably for the first tym he had complimented her openly otherwise Everytym it was only his eyes who use to tell her how beautiful she is in his eyes. Last night did had changed something if not anything then it did had changed her husband for sure, she thought as she smiled shyly feeling his burning gaze over her.

 

“Maan I need to go.” Geet somehow managed to utter amongst the shiver she is feeling due to his proximity nd more due to his affectionate words.

 

“I haven’t stopped you Geet.” Maan said keeping his gaze fixed on hers as she finally raised her lashes up to look at him as his words sinked in her mind only to find herself holding his hand firmly in hers while he had just intertwined their fingers together as if promised to be like this together forever.

 

Her eyes went wide nd a dark blush crept her cheeks as the realization sinked in her mind that they had slept in the same position probably for the whole night that too so close to each other but what made her heart raced was the fact that Maan didn’t showed any kind of reluctance or uncomfortableness instead he seems to be very much no absolutely comfortable with their proximity as if they were meant to be like this only.

 

“Babaji, is he really accepting our relationship.” She thought as she scanned his face trying to find any kind of reluctance that always use to be there but to her surprise she find none instead his eyes had that twinkle in them that she had never witnessed before as they were boring into hers deep.

 

“Geet, as much as I want you to drool over me like this for whole day but don’t you think that you are getting late as I suppose that you had to take shower.” Maan teased as he noticed her hazels lost in him making Geet to come out from her thoughts as she immediately freed her hand with a startle nd get down from the bed before making a dash towards the washroom feeling so embarrassed to caught by him like this for drooling over him so openly.

 

“Geet” she stopped in her tracks listening to his baritone voice as she tilted her head a bit to look at him for she was feeling too shy to look at him directly.

 

“Thanks for making my morning beautiful.” He spoke softly as he looked at her shy form before she runs inside the washroom hiding her blush that was formed due to his words before resting her back to the washroom door in order to calm down her racing heartbeats while closing her eyes smiling widely.

 

“Pagal.” Maan muttered as he looked at the closed washroom door smilingly before closing his eyes in contentment yet again.

“What are you saying Adi? How can this be possible?” Dev spoke in astonishment as he heard to the piece of information given by Adi on call.

 

“I was as surprised as you sir but it’s true. The incident that happened that day in the Noida site was not at all an accident. It was all planned. Someone is trying to harm Maan Sir.” Adi shared the information that he had gathered in all these days making Dev to rub his temple in worry.

 

“Are you sure that there’s no misconception regarding it. I mean why would someone want to harm Bro. I agree that strike thing can be conducted by any of our rivals but then why would they attack on Bro.” Dev spoke as he tried to get the head nd tail of whole situation but more he tries more he gets confused.

 

“That I don’t know Dev Sir, but there’s definitely someone who is trying to harm Maan Sir. You remember that hospital incident where the ventilator Plug got loose due to which the ventilator went off before Maan sir had gained consciousness nd after that those Expiry medicines fiasco where Vicky Sir has noticed that Maan Sir was going to have the expired medicines; all these were not just a mere coincidence or accident, everything was planned but it was Maan Sir’s luck that he had saved Everytym. I heard one of the ward boy talking about it to someone while taking money. I couldn’t see that person as I ran behind the ward boy but he dodged me successfully nd that was the starting of my doubt nd then as I investigate then I found all this has been planned. I had held one of the worker also captive with the help of the Police who was included in strike that day but he just said that he don’t know anything as he just said that he don’t know anything as he just did what he has been told to do so by his leader nd his leader was still missing.” Dev’s eyes went wide in shock as he absorbs each nd every information given by Adi realizing the danger clouding on his brother’s lyf.

 

“Adi, Why didn’t you told me all this before?” Dev spoke in helplessness as he clutched the edge of the chair to control his rage.

 

“Sir, I myself wanted to be sure before I tell this to anyone. Sir I think we should tell about all this to Maan Sir.” Adi suggested after taking a deep sigh making Dev thoughtful for a while.

 

“No Adi, Bro is still recovering nd we can’t stress him more by telling all this. You remember Na what Doctor has said, stress is not good for his health until he recovers completely. And Geet, you know how sensitive she is for Bro. I don’t want her to go through any kind of trauma once again. Abhi Abhi to everything seems to fall back at place between them I don’t want any kind of tension in their lyf. Until nd unless Bro doesn’t recovers we have to look through this matter ourselves. Adi you do one thing, increase the security of KC nd KM nd especially for Bro. whoever the person is he or she will again try to do something like that nd I don’t want to take any chance. Keep an eye on everyone in KC may be we can get any clue from there nd also keep your investigation on for Noida site incident nd search that leader as soon as possible. I want to to know who was behind all this. But make sure ki is baare me Kisi ko Kuch bhi pata nahi chalna chahiye. Rest I’ll talk to you after coming KC.” Dev instructed Adi regarding the security of Maan who ensured him to do his best before cutting the call.

 

“Whoever you are, I’ll find you very soon nd once I’ll find you I swear that day would be your last day on this earth.” Dev muttered in utter rage as he clenched his fist to control the anger coursing through his veins since the tym he came to know about everything unknown of the fact that someone has heard the communication between him nd Adi nd I now sweating like anything. It was NT who had came to call Dev for breakfast but after hearing him talking to Adi her breath seems to be choked in her throat.

 

“Agar Dev ko pata chal Gaya ki Noida site me jo Kuch bhi hua uske peeche hum the to wo Hume Zinda nahi chodenge. Nahi, Hume Kuch Karna padega aur wo bhi Jaldi.” Nayantara thought as she wiped away the sweat beads from her forehead before moving away from there while making call to someone.

 

[If Dev will come to know that it was me who was behind whatever had happened in Noida site then he won’t leave me alive. No, I had to do something that too soon.]

Maan looked at the innocent nd enthralling beauty of his wife through the mirror as she sat before the dresser getting ready after coming out from the shower. His eyes never left her sight as if she was the only thing that was meant to be seen by him as he noticed each nd every moment of his wife while she was getting ready unknown of her effect on her husband. Unknown to her, her each nd every move was making Maan to drown into the world of unknown desires which he never knew was there before. How can anyone be so beautiful yet so innocent, he thought as he looked at her unblinkingly loving her with his eyes.

 

His fingers itched to slide through her wet locks that she has been drying with the towel losing them in the dense forest of her silky hairs while inhaling the aroma of those silky hairs. Her hazels held him captive as she adorned them with the kohl making them to look more prominent nd deep such that it gave him the insight of her heart nd soul which is as pure as God residing in heaven. His gaze travels down from her eyes towards her cheeks that were in the darkest shade of red few minutes back nd were most of the tymes just because of his presence around her making him proud of the fact that he’s the only one who could make her feel this way nd as this thought crossed his mind he felt himself falling for her more nd more as he felt this dire need ran his fingers on that blush of her soft cheeks caressing the soft skin with his lips. Nd finally his gaze descended nd rested on those soft petals of hers as she applies gloss on them making her full luscious lips more prominent nd desirous nd he felt his throat went dry as he felt this sudden desire to feel those soft petals of hers against his relishing sweetness nd softness of those petals quenching their thirst while his tongue to relish the sweet nectar of her mouth.

 

Ik aur badhne lagey jo
Ik dor bandhne lagey jo
Ik shor karne lagey jo
Do dil

Maan closed his eyes sucking in the harsh breath as he remembered how soft those petals have felt against his when he had tasted them for the first tym. The fact that he was the only one who had touched her in this way made him want her more nd more as he recalls the images of his erotic dream last night making him all aroused yet again. Gosh his wife is definitely making him crazier day by day with her innocent beauty which can even make saint insane then he was just a mere human, he thought as he opened his eyes once again after shrugging off all the X-rated thoughts for her only to find her applying Vermillion on her parting after adorning her neck with Mangalsutra making his heart to swell in pride that this priceless possession belongs to him nd no one else. He didn’t miss the glint in her eyes as she applied the sign of their marriage as if they were her most priceless possession of hers making him realize that how much this marriage nd especially he means to her. Nd as the realization dawned upon him he felt this sudden need to fill her in his embrace keeping her in his arms forever. He would have probably done that also if he wouldn’t have hissed in pain due to the sudden jerk on his fractured hand as he tries to get down from bed in daze thus drawing Geet’s attention towards him.

 

“Maan” Geet gasped as she looked at Maan hissing in pain while holding his fractured hand with his free hand.

 

“Maan, what happen? Are you fine? Dard Ho raha hai? Should I call Doctor?” Geet asked as soon as she reached to him helping him to sit properly without realizing how close she is to him such that her wet hairs were caressing his rough cheeks making Maan to close his eyes while inhaling the mesmerizing aroma of her silky hairs.

 

Ik chaal chalne lagey jab
Ik dhaal dhalne lagey jab
Ik thaal chakne lagey jab
Do dil

 

“Nahi� Ab Dard nahi ho raha hai.” Maan’s hoarse whisper made her to look at him nd her words caught in her throat as she once again witnessed the intensity of his dark orbs which were quiet prominent since last night nd she found herself drowning in his deep honeyed eyes like always.

 

[No�. now it’s not paining]

 

Maan looked at her one hazel to another only to find his reflection in them loud nd clear as they were lost in his. His free hand automatically reached towards her wet strands that were forming a curtain beside them tucking them securely behind her ear caressing it with his long fingers gently yet sensuously making Geet to close her eyes as a soft gasp escaped her lips due to his loving touch as her hand rested on his chest right above his heart that was thudding because of having her so close to him. She still can’t believe that everything is happening in real. Everything seems to be a dream, a beautiful Dream which she was living right now. Well if it is really a dream then she wished her eyes to be close forever if it meant to feel this blissful by being close to him as she was afraid of her beautiful dream of being broken if she opens her eyes, she thought as she felt his long fingers now tracing her jaw line while his thumb was caressing her cheek softly yet lovingly making her to smile nd blush all at the same tym.

 

“Beautiful.” Maan whispered as he looked at the red hue formed on her cheek before gazing at her smiling face so beautiful nd so close to him.

 

“Maan Aap��”

 

 

Judne lagey lagey

Do dilon ke jab kinaare
Udne lagey

 

“Ssshhh�.” Maan silenced her while keeping his fingers on her lips as she tried to say something between her uneven breaths due to his proximity.

 

“Open your eyes Geet.” He whispered as he looked at her closed eyes to which she just nodded her head in no feeling shy to gaze in his Deep honeyed eyes.

 

“Please” He pleaded with his baritone voice nd next moment found her opening her lashes slowly making Maan to drown in the depth of her hazels yet again.

 

Ishaqzaade Ishaqzaade Ishaqzaade�.

Ishaqzaade Ishaqzaade Ishaqzaade�.

Ishaqzaadeee  Ishaqzaade
Ishaqzaadeee  Ishaqzaade

 

His finger unknowingly grazed her soft lips before pressing them gently making Geet to part them a bit as she felt the sudden short of breath due to his sweet torcher nd his intense gaze was not helping either as she looked at him with her doe shaped eyes. For Maan everything seems to look so beautiful around him just by having her so near to him. It was as if there was some kind of mist between them till now which slowly nd gradually is removing giving him a clear view of reality, a beautiful reality of having her in his lyf. She came like a ray of light in his lyf that consumed all the darkness in which he was living till now making him to love his lyf yet again. Few months back she was just a responsibility for him but now she’s getting an integral part of his lyf or probably had already became as he can’t think of his lyf without her. Guess he’s falling really hard for her or had already fallen, he still can’t decide upon the fact yet.

 

They kept gazing into each other’s eyes for what seems like an eternity reading each other’s soul through their eyes when a loud knock on door jolted them back into the real world nd Geet instantly parted away from him gently while looking other side feeling shy. Maan looked at her shy form nd shaked his head while smiling before asking the person to come in only to find Nakul coming inside along with a nurse making both Maan nd Geet to furrow their brows in confusion especially Geet who didn’t understand why she was here. Haven’t she told the Doctor that she don’t need any nurse for Maan, she thought as she looked at nurse confusingly.

 

“Wo�.  Dr. Mehra has sent me to take care of Mr. Khurana.” Nurse said as she looked at Maan dreamily which was definitely not liked by Geet who was looking at nurse while narrowing her eyes.

 

“Excuse me�. Excuse me” Geet’s loud voice brought nurse out of her la la land who was till now looking at Maan lost as she looked at Geet only to witness her annoying glare.

 

“I think I had clearly told Dr. Mehta that I don’t need any nurse for Maan. Then why on earth you are here.” Geet’s stern voice scared nurse a bit while Maan was finding it hard to control his laugh seeing the sherni side of his wife.

 

“Wo Ma’am I know what all you had said to Dr. Mehta but I need to be here to take care of Mr. Khurana as he can need me anytime.” Nurse said after gaining a bit confidence only to infuriate Geet more.

 

“Hey what are you doing over here” Vicky who was witnessing everything by peeping from the door heard a voice beside him followed by a tap nd he looked beside him only to find Annie standing over there perplexed.

 

“Ssshhh Chup Bandariya, just look over there.” Vicky chided in a low voice before pointing towards the direction of his interest. Be it any other day then Annie would have strangle him for sure for calling her that but then like Vicky she too was curious to see the scene inside the room.

 

“Maan only need his wife at this moment nd I am sure that you are definitely not that as I clearly remembered that it’s me with whom he got married.” Geet said without realizing what she was saying shocking everyone especially Maan who almost spilled out the water he was having as he looked at Geet unbelievingly shocked at her passiveness.

 

“Ma’am I know you are his wife but there are few things which only nurse can do just like his dressing nd giving him a Sponge Bath.” Nurse said as she looked at Geet smirking before look at Maan dreamily as she could already visualize himself touching his muscular body with her hands in the process giving sponge bath while Maan just looked other side feeling uncomfortable with her gaze. Geet’s jaw dropped open seeing her audacity as she marched towards her angrily before poking her shoulders making her to look her.

 

“Maan don’t need you for do anything of that sort ok nd especially giving him the sponge bath.” Geet said as he pouted angrily while Maan bit his lips hard to control his laughter.

 

“But Ma’am if I’ll not give him then who’ll give him.” Nurse said as she looked at Geet confusingly.

 

“I’ll give him the sponge bath.” Geet spoke without thinking twice but then instantly bit her tongue when she realized what she said but alas it was too late

 

“WHAT???” A combined gasp echoed in the whole room confirmed her doubts that she has said something utterly unbelievable without thinking twice nd now only she has to bear the aftermath of it.

 

“Jhalli, Gadhi, Stupid Yeh Kya bol diya tune?” Geet chided herself as she looked at the shocked faces of nurse nd Maan who were looking at her as if she was an alien unknown of the fact the two more people peeping through the door were also hell shocked at her boldness.

 

Geet looked at Maan nd smiled nervously when found his gaze fixed on her while eaising his brows as if trying to believe that she had really said that. Well she herself was not able to believe that she had actually agreed to give Maan sponge bath then Maan was not an exception. She cursed her big mouth umpteenth tym for uttering those words without thinking twice when she knew it very well that how hard it is for her to restrain herself from not melting in his proximity then how on earth she’ll give him Sponge bath, she thought as automatically a dark red colour crept on her cheeks as she Maan’s bare body with her hands touching it sinfully in the process of giving him sponge bath nd she immediately shaked her head getting off all the erotic thoughts from her mind.

 

She cursed herself umpteenth tym for letting herself trapped in such a situation but what could she do too, she can’t see someone else even seeing him in that way then forget about touching him or any part of his body. It was hers nd only hers right to see him or feel him in all ways possible nd no one else’ nd here this nurse is already dreaming about touching her Maan on the pretext of giving him sponge bath was something totally unbearable for her. Even in the hospital also she haven’t let any nurse near him. It was always ward boys that helped Maan in his basic needs that too in the presence of Dadimaa or her Bade Papa nd if not ward boys then she herself was always there with him to help him with his requirements even when she herself needs rest then how can she let this nurse to do what she’s dreaming. And at that very moment all that tiny miny of hesitation or awkwardness of giving him sponge bath flew out of the window as she was determined to not this nurse let to touch even a hair of Maan’s body then forget he himself.

 

“But Ma’am how will you give him sponge bath. I mean you can’t give that.” Nurse spoke in displeasure as she felt the golden opportunity of touching the Greek God himself slipping out from her hands thus bringing Geet out from her reveries

 

“Why? Why can’t I give him sponge bath? Is there any special technique to give Sponge bath or you are more than interested to give him bath yourself?” Geet asked with her scrutinizing gaze making nurse to feel caught off guard while Maan just shaked his head smiling nd totally enjoying the scene in front specially the possessive side of his wife.

 

“No Ma’am it’s not like that but it’s very necessary to take precautions while giving sponge bath to an injured person. A slight carelessness can worse his wound nd you won’t be able to do that so I was just saying that…”

 

“And who are you to decide that? If you had forgotten then let me remind you that I am Maan’s wife nd I know how to take care of him better than you. So now just take your all equipments nd moved pout from my sight right now.” Geet cut her in between making nurse scared with her anger while Vicky nd Annie were enjoying the whole Act in front of them especially Vicky who was grinning ear to ear.

 

“Hey, ye sab tune kiya? i mean calling this nurse nd all” Annie asked in a hush voice as she noticed Vicky extra excited.

[Hey did you all planned this? i mean calling this nurse nd all”]

 

“Ofcourse it was all my secret plan to bring Maan Bhai nd Bhabhi closer nd guess it’s already working. Nd why not Afterall its Vicky the Love Guru’s nd this to all know that  in this home the only intelligent person after Maan Bhai is only nd only me’ Vikrant Singh Khurana” Vicky said raising his invisible collar only to earn a whack from Annie making him growl in pain. Be it would any other day then he too have answered back in the same way but well today the scene in front was much more interesting than their fights nd hence they forgot their enemity for a while to concentrate on the scene inside the room.

 

“Ummm Geet I think that what nurse is saying is right. I think you should let her give me sponge bath. You see she’ll give me bath with extra care. Nd I know infact I am sure that she’ll make sure not to hurt my wounds” Maan purposefully rubbed the possessive side of Geet while smirking inwardly while Geet’s jaw dropped open listening to his statement nd she marched towards him angrily.

 

“Kya? You don’t know anything so better don’t say anything. Did I ask your advice? No Na, so just don’t utter a word. Samjhe Aap.” Geet warned as she pointed her finger towards him nd Maan couldn’t help himself from chuckling nd admiring this side of hers but he better won’t show it to her or else she would eat him alive.

 

“But Geet…”

 

“Chup Bilkul Chup! I said na that I will do it nd now I don’t want to hear a single word from you ok.” Geet said nd Maan instantly shuts his mouth seeing her angry glare making Geet to smirk at her victory before turning back only to find nurse still standing over there with expectant eyes looking at Maan.

 

“You are still here? Didn’t I told you to leave straightaway? Now leave right now or else I’ll complain to Dr. Mehta about you.” Geet’s words did their effect nd Nurse left from there heartbroken cursing Geet under her breath for breaking her dream.

 

“So what were you saying?” Geet asked as she crossed her arms across her chest looking at Maan with narrowed eyes as soon as nurse left nd Maan gulped down his saliva knowing very well that he’s in for a trouble.

 

“Ummm Geet you are taking me wrong I was just saying that she’s trained for all this nd hence she can do it in a better way bas that’s it.” Maan replied innocently as he looked at Geet with the most innocent face.

 

“Oh Really?” Geet said as she made an amazed face on his reasoning

 

“Haan aur kya? Poor girl she was here to help me nd you had scared her for no reason.” Maan said as he shaked his head unknown of the amount of anger building inside Geet’s body.

 

“Oh! Bahut bura lag raha hai Aapko uske Liye. Maan I am thinking that why don’t I call her back nd why only her I should call the head nurse also over here along with all those desperate burses who were roaming around you in the hospital like a bee. Phir Aap Aaram se unse sponge Bath Lena ok. Wait! I’ll just call all of them nd along with them I’ll call Dadimaa also. Afterall she too has the right to see that how much his favourite grandson is concerned for that poor nurse Hai Na.” Geet said sarcastically as she turned to call Dadimaa thus alarming Maan nd he instantly held her wrist pulling her toward him making her to sit her on the bed

 

“Geet, I was just kidding. No need to call Dadimaa.” Maan said meekly in order to fix the damage that he had done while Geet was tried to free her wrist from his grip

 

“Kyun? Why are you getting scared now? Few minutes back to you were so were concerned for that nurse then let me call her only nd let her only give you bath. Abhi I’ll tell all this to Dadimaa. She would also see ki unka ladla kitna bigad gaya hai” Geet said as she struggled to get free from his grip which was increasing every passing second while he was desperately trying to make her believe that he was only kidding

 

“Leave me or I’ll call Dadimaa. Dadim…”

 

Her words died in her throat as Maan pulled her towards him making her fall on her chest shutting her by keeping his palm on her mouth. It all happened so sudden that Geet couldn’t understood at first place but when she did she couldn’t help herself but getting lost in his chocolate brown eyes that were looking so intently at her. He slowly removed his palm from her mouth lingering his fingertips on her soft lips for more than required in the process making Geet to let out a soft gasp with his touch as she looked at him with her hooded lashes. Maan just wanted to stop her from calling Dadimaa so that he could make her understand that he was only kidding about that nurse part but now having her so close to him made him to lose all his senses nd he couldn’t help himself from admiring this naive beauty close to him. He don’t know what happens to him Everytym whenever she was so close to him. It was as if all his senses gets drugged nd he could see nothing but her nd only her.

 

Geet closed her eyes nd her lips parted in anticipation when she saw his face extending towards her nd his breath falling on her lips. She just clutched his vest tight in her fist in order to control her racing heartbeats that were beating so violently in his proximity. Maan looked at her closed eyes, her parted lips nd her hold on his vest nd smiled seeing his effect on her while his eyes were lost in taking each nd every beautiful feature of her innocent face. Geet was still breathing heavily when she found his hot breath burning the soft skin of her neck while his stubble caressing the skin of her cheeks nd his nose tracing the outer shell of her ear in the process of nuzzling in her hairs making her to squirm a bit feeling ticklish while her hold on his vest gets more firm.

 

“Geet, I was only kidding at that tym. I never wanted that nurse to be anywhere near me at the first place but when I saw your possessiveness then I couldn’t help myself from not teasing you. Sorry if I went overboard but trust me like you I too don’t want that nurse to give me sponge bath. Afterall it’s only my wife’s right to touch me or look at me in that way nd my wife is only you Geet nd not that nurse therefore only you had this right to give me sponge bath.” Geet heard his hoarse whisper as his lips brushed her earlobe while saying that making Geet to smile nd blush all at the same tym with his words nd gesture

 

“Geet, won’t you give me my sponge bath now?” Maan asked huskily as he gently pulled away his face looking at her intently with a smile tugged on his M-shaped lips to which she just nodded shyly nd went to take away Bowl of water nd cloth but not before looking at him with her hooded lashes yet again only to find his gaze fixed on her making her to go all red.

 

“Ouch!” Annie whined as she felt someone smacking her head nd she turned only to find Vicky whacking her making her to pout in anger while rubbing her head.

 

“Now will you watch Bhabhi giving bath to Maan Bhai also? Atleast have some shame nd give them their needed privacy already you had seen more than enough. Ab Chal Yaha se or else if Bhai will come to know that we are peeping in their romantic moments then he’ll eat us alive.” Vicky chided though playfully but for the first tym Annie didn’t get angry on him for she knows that he’s indeed right.

 

“Waise should I tell you something? Kehte hue to Acha nahi lag raha but for the first tym I Truly love you for doing this my loving Bro.” Annie said genuinely expressing her love for his brother for the very first tym shocking Vicky to the core.

 

“Sachi! I too love you my loving Sister. Chal isi baat pe tujhe Ice-cream khilata hoon.” Vicky said as he winked while Annie beamed in excitement before both Bro-sis duo went away from there for their ice-cream treat.

 

[Really. I too love you my loving sister. Chal let go out for Ice-cream from my side.]

Geet entered in the room after a while with a bowl nd cloth in her hand still not able to look at him directly due to the anticipation of what was coming next. She don’t know that how is she going to give him sponge bath for she knows how hard it is for her to control herself around him but all she knows is that only she had this right to do this nd today even Maan had accepted this fact both to himself nd her so now it gave a new zeal to her hope of getting his love all for herself one day.

 

Maan’s gaze was fixed on her since the tym she had entered inside the room only to find her looking at him with her hooded lashes feeling all shy making him to fall for her at this antic of hers. Who’ll say that this is the same Geet who was in her Sherni mood few minutes back scaring the hell out of nurse nd ofcourse him too nd now she’s feeling too shy to even look at him directly. She indeed had many colors in her nd Everytym he witnesses a different color of hers, he thought as he just keeps on looking at her as she came nd sat in front of him still all blushing.

 

Ik aur badhne lagey jo
Ik dor bandhne lagey jo
Ik shor karne lagey jo
Do dil

She hesitantly extended her hand to remove his vest from his body while her fingers shivered when it brushed the exposed skin of her shoulder making Maan to smile with his effect on her. But it was not only her who felt the current down her spine with this slight touch Maan too felt an electrifying sensation throughout his veins with her single touch but he just controlled himself not wanting to make her feel more shy. Geet gently removed away the vest from his body making sure not to hurt his Fractured hand nd his bare upper torso came in view making her to gulp down her saliva seeing his taut chest, broad shoulders nd perfect Abs this closely for the first tym. True she had seen it before too when that moment transpired between them but at that tym she was too dazed to notice anything but today she was all in her senses nd hence she could feel the goosebumps all over her body along with the heat radiating through her cheeks seeing his bare body.

 

Ik chaal chalne lagey jab
Ik dhaal dhalne lagey jab
Ik thaal chakne lagey jab
Do dil

She slowly dipped the sponge in water nd moved it towards his forehead wiping it making sure not to wet his bandage nd Maan just looked at her intently when she moved towards his cheeks gently wiping it with the wet cloth while her fingers were gently caressing his stubble in the process. She didn’t realized how innocently her thumb has brushed his M-shaped lips while wiping away the area under his chin making Maan to groan in pleasure inwardly. It was getting so hard for him to not to lose his senses especially when she was touching him so innocently yet seductively but still he managed to control himself from not crushing her underneath him fulfilling all his desires to love her endlessly without any barrier. He knows his effect on her but it was now he realizes the extent of her effect on him so deep that he could feel each nd every fiber of his body burning in desire nd to his surprise that feeling of guilt or regret didn’t hit him at all like it use to do before.

 

Judne lagey lagey

do dilon ke jab kinaare
Udne lagey

Geet’s condition was not less either as she was trying hard to concentrate the task on her hand nd not to drool on his bare body so openly nd shamelessly still she couldn’t help but adore the handsome features of her husband so closely. It was as if Aphrodite himself was sitting in front of her while she got this privilege to see him nd touch him without any hesitation or awkwardness. Maan closed his eyes nd a soft groan escaped his lips when he felt her coming closer to wipe the area of his upper shoulder such that her breath fanned the area of his chest while her fingers innocently stroked his Adam’s apple in the process of wiping away the area if his throat nd neck. He was so electrified with her soft touches that he could feel himself getting hardened yet he used every fiber of his body to control himself not wanting her to witness his desperate self while she wiped away his arms being extra careful while wiping away his fractured arm.

 

Geet felt his thudding heart under her palm that was beating so violently due to their proximity nd especially due to her innocent touches as she wiped away the area of his taut chest nd she instantly looked up at him only to find his breathing heavy while his pupils dilated in desire as they looked at her intently, something that she had never witnessed before in his eyes. The fact that she was the one who had made him feel this way was enough to give a new to her love as she continue to wipe the area of his chest slowly moving towards his perfect Abs. This is probably for the first tym she was touching him so freely nd the way his body was reacting to her every touch gave enough strength to her to proceed with her each move though that’s a different thing that she was feeling countless butterflies running in the pit of her stomach whenever his bare skin came in contact with her fingers nd she was sure that he too was feeling the same sensation throughout his body for his labored breath, flexed muscles nd his dark eyes gave away the condition of his heart nd body making her proud of the fact that she is the only one to make him feel like this.

 

Ishaqzaade Ishaqzaade Ishaqzaade…

Ishaqzaade Ishaqzaade Ishaqzaade…

Ishaqzaadeee  Ishaqzaade
Ishaqzaadeee  Ishaqzaade

 

 

Somehow she managed to give him sponge bath with her drooling over his features nd him to drinking her beauty intently with his eyes along with drowning in the world of unknown pleasure after which Geet raises her face to look at him only to find him looking already at her all lost while their faces were mere inches away with their breath mingling into each other’s. Just an inch ahead nd they both could feel each other lips against each other’s nd the mere realization was making both their hearts missing million beats. They could have lost in each other’s eyes forever speaking in their own language of Love if Geet wouldn’t have realized that Maan’s upper torso is still bare nd she needs to put some cloth on it to avoid him from getting sick.

 

Her Love for him is one thing but her care for him overpower everything nd anyways it’s a saying that care is an another form of love nd hence she was only expressing his love in the form of care, she thought as she finally managed to tore away her gaze from him all blushing before moving towards the cupboard to take a out a new shirt for him while he just sat over there looking at her every moment smilingly. He saw her coming back to him after taking out a shirt nd made him wear that taking extra care of his fractured hand nd he couldn’t help himself from not admiring nd loving such an epitome of innocence in front of him. Wait! Did he just said love? Yes he did nd he had no regret for it infact his heart seems to be have extra contentment realizing the fact that he had indeed fallen hard for his wife due to her selfless nd unconditional nature.

 

He saw her getting up from bed to keep away the bowl nd water back at its place nd as a reflex action his hand instantly grasped her wrist stopping her from going away. He don’t know why but he don’t want her to go away from him, he just wanted her to be in front of him like this always as if her presence is the solace of his heart nd each moment will be empty for him if she’ll not be there with him. Geet looked at him nd then at his hold on her wrist nd before she could understand anything she found him pulling her towards him slightly such that their faces were mere inches apart while his eyes were lost deep in her hazels with a soft smile tugging on his lips.

 

“Geet, I’ll wait for my next sponge bath session tomorrow nd only you have to give me that. You will right?” Maan huskily whispered such that his warm breath was falling on her soft lips teasing her senses making each cell of her body to burn in desire; desire to be loved by him. No words came out from her mouth seeing the intensity of emotions in his eyes nd hence all she could do is to nod her head in yes shyly while blushing profusely until he reluctantly leaves her wrist nd finding the perfect opportunity she just made dash out from room hiding herself from his piercing gaze but not before peeping from the door before going away only to find him looking intently at her making her to get red in embarrassment as she quickly ran away from there leaving Maan to shake his head on her naivety.

“What is this Maan? You are not yet completely recovered nd you had converted whole room into office.” Geet chided as she saw Maan surrounding with files while his laptop was open nd kept aside.

 

“Nahi Geet, its nothing much just a bit of work.” Maan reasoned as he looked into his laptop keeping the file away only to give rise to Geet’s temper while poor Adi was only the silent spectator of all this.

 

“Ya ofcourse nothing much, just 2 dozens of files nd about 5-6 blueprints nd 10-12 PPTs that’s it, nothing much.” Geet said sarcastically as she looked at him while crossing her arms across her chest.

 

“Geet, you are only over reacting. I mean it’s not that much of work nd I am very much better now. Nd anyways it’s been 2 weeks now since I am doing nothing but resting excluding the 3 weeks in the hospital so now I need to take care of my business also nd if you forget then let me remind you that I owe a construction company nd I had to take care of that also.” Maan retorted as he kept his laptop aside only to add fuel to Geet’s anger.

 

“Ya ofcourse it’s only you Na who use to work. It’s only your weak shoulders that are carrying the responsibility of KC. Dev nd Adi use to go to play cricket nd pool over there Hai Na.” Maan rolled his eyes listening to her sarcasm yet again while Geet looked at him narrowing her brows.

 

“Hehehehehehe” Adi laughed his typical laughter listening to Geet’s sarcasm making both Geet nd Maan to look at him.

 

“ADI!!!” Both yelled at the same tym making Adi to shut his mouth instantly after muttering a quick sorry.

 

“And you stop yelling on Adi nd listen to me. You are not going to work until Doctor confirmed to do so. Got it.” Geet said as she pointed her finger towards him

 

“But Geet…”

 

“Chup Bilkul Chup! Not a word more or I’ll complain to Dadimaa nd then she only will scold you.” Geet interrupted in between as she saw Maan saying something making Maan to look other side gritting his teeth in anger.

 

“And Adi you, you are not going to bring any file or any kind of work in KM until I told you so no matter how much Maan say or threaten you. You don’t need to get scared of his big-big eyes ok nd if you still bring Na then trust me I am worse than Maan in anger.” Geet threaten the poor Adi who just nodded his head in acceptance.

 

“Ofcourse Mrs. Khurana as you say.” Adi said while muffling his laughter before going away from there before he have t
