Hey guys! Sorry I haven't updated for so long. It's just been a very hectic day for me lately, and well I finally got time to update. So here I go...
Geet is in the kitchen. She looked around herself and thought of what to make. Her thoughts got broken by loud footsteps.
Maan: "What are you doing here?" he asked
Geet turned around and looked at Maan. Her heart started beating faster, and louder. Geet herself, didn't know what this feeling was but she chose to ignore it.
Geet: "I was bored... So I thought I could maybe make something"
Maan: "Oh... Well what do you want to make then?"
Geet: "I was thinking of making chocolate cake. We could make it together. How about that?"
Maan: "I don't know how to cook" he said and looked away in embarrassment
Geet: "Then how do you... eat?" she asked in confusion
Maan: "I've got servants. They cook for me"
Geet: "Oh, thats okay. I can teach you. I'll tell you what to do, and you can make it"
Maan: "I like that idea. Okay, whats first?" he asked
Geet and Maan washed their hands, and put on an apron.
Geet: "Right... First we need to melt chocolate"
Geet and Maan took turns on doing stuff, and right now it was Geet's turn to mix the chocolate batter.
While Geet was mixing the chocolate batter, Maan looked at the chocolatey bowl hungrily.
Geet noticed this.
Geet: "Why are you looking at the bowl like that?" she asked
Maan: "I... I want to taste the batter" he squeaked out
Geet looked at Maan in disbelief.
Geet: "No Maan. You can lick the bowl afterwards" she said and continued mixing the bowl
Maan gulped and looked away to resist the temptation.
Geet: "I think chocolate is your favourite, right?" she said matter of factly
Maan: "Yeah. It makes me crazy. I eat any chocolate I can find"
Geet: "Then how are you so hot and good looking?" she said
Geet realized what she had just said.
Geet: "Geet! How did that come out? I don't fancy him do I? No Geet, stop thinking such stupid thoughts. He's just a friend. Just a friend" she thought to herself
Maan on the other hand, looked at Geet naughtily and stood very close to her.
Maan: "I never knew you thought I was... hot" he said with a lop-sided grin
Geet gulped. She leaned on the worktop.
Maan: "I never knew you thought I was good looking" he said
Geet was practically sitting on the worktop and she just stared into those dark caramel eyes, and before she knew it, Maan grabbed the bowl of batter.
Geet: "Hey!! That's not fair!" she said and pouted her lips
Maan: "Everything is fair in MY kitchen" he said
Maan was about to dip his finger in the batter but Geet snatched the bowl just in time.
Geet: "HAH! In your face" she said and stuck out her tongue
Maan: "I'm gonna get you Geet!" he said angrily
Geet ran for it, holding the batter. They both ran for 10 minutes, and Geet still had the batter. They both decided to give up.
Geet: "Okay, I have an idea. You can have the batter IF you can make it to the kitchen before I put it in the oven. Deal?"
Maan: "Oh... It's on!" he said and Geet made a ran for it to the kitchen.
Unfortunately, Geet was too fast for him and she put the batter in the oven before he could even get there. Maan reached the kitchen after a few seconds, gasping for breath.
Maan: "How... Can you... Run so... fast?" he said between gasps
Geet: "I bet I can beat you in a marathon" she said and winked
After 7 minutes, Maan sat down still gasping for breath. Geet looked at Maan worriedly
Geet: "You dont have asthma... Do you?" she asked in fear
Maan nodded and made out 'Inhaler' between gasps.
Geet: "Maan, look tell me where your inhaler is" she said, her heart thumping against her ribcage with fear
Maan: "Bedroom... draw..." he said with his hand on his chest
Geet: "I'll go get it Maan just hold on okay?" she said and sprinted out of the kitchen, and then up the stairs.
Geet: "I forgot to ask which draw! Now what? I'll just look inside all of them" she said and started with the desk.
She couldn't find it in the desk draws, so she moved to the wardrobe. She couldn't find it in there either. She finally found it in the bedside draws and ran down the stairs with the inhaler. To the kitchen.
Geet gave Maan the inhaler and Maan puffed it in his mouth. After 10 minutes he calmed down.
Geet: "Are you crazy?! You knew you had asthma and still, you ran all that way. You could have told me that you had asthma! What if something happened to you? You could have died, anything could have happened. You didn't know what went through me when I saw you gasping for air like that!" she said pacing backwards and forwards
Maan: "But nothing happend right?" he said pretending not to be scared, even though he was.
Geet: "Yes. Nothing happend. It was just an asthma attack and nothing happend. You were just gasping for air casually. Right?"
Maan: "Geet, your over-reacting" he said in a low voice
Geet: "Over-reacting? I'm over-rea --"
Geet couldn't complete her sentence because she heard the 'ting' from the oven. Indicating the cake was ready.
Geet took the cake out fo the oven. The cake was a success. Geet decided to make it into a 'Black Forrest' cake so she took out the ingrediants for the fresh cream icing and started mixing, without talking to Maan.
Maan was very upset. He knew Geet was just scared about it all. But he didn't want to break his friendship with her. So he decided to say sorry.
Maan: "Sorry" he said in a low voice and looked away.
Geet didn't say anything.
Maan: "Does this mean we aren't friends anymore?" he said trying to swallow the huge lump in his throat
Geet had finished icing the cake. She was now decorating the sides of the cake, putting on the twig like, chocolate sticks around.
Maan: "Look I said sorry"
Geet looked at the finished cake and smiled. Then presented it in front of Maan.
Maan: "I'm sorry I shouldn't have --"
Maan couldn't complete his sentence. He looked at the cake in front of him. It was the most beautiful cake he had ever seen. And in the centre it said 'Thank You'
Maan: "Thank you?" he said in confusion
Geet: "Well, it's the least I can do for everything you have done for me" she said and smiled
Maan: "Are we still friends then?"
Geet: "Yeah. I'm sorry I shouldn't have shouted at you like that" she said and put the cake down on the table in front of Maan.
Maan: "I'm sorry too" he said and hugged Geet tightly
Geet: "I don't think I can eat all this cake by myself Maan" she said and broke the hug
Maan and Geet grabbed a spoon and started eating. Enjoying the lucious texture of chocolate.
After a while, Geet announced that it was time for her to go home. Maan insisted on dropping her off.
Maan: "But it's really late, and you wont find a taxi anywhere" he said
Geet: "Fine" she said
Maan grabbed his keys and dropped Geet off to her flat.
Geet: "Thanks Maan. It was a nice day today" she said
Maan: "Sure. Any time"
Geet got out of the car and headed off towards the door which lead to her flat. Maan made sure she reached inside safely, then drove away.
Geet put the key inside the keyhole, but she stopped in her trance. She heard a voice.
Man: "Not so fast!" the man said huskily
Geet turned around to see the man she payed the rent to.
Man: "Your not going in that flat. Unless you pay the rent, right now" he snapped
Geet: "Look, i'll pay the rent tomorrow. I haven't got my salary yet!"
Man: "I don't care. I want the 500. You have many debts to pay as well"
Geet: "Please I --"
Geet was forced not to complete her sentence since she heard a familiar voice.
Maan handed over a 500 cheque to the man.
Maan: "How many debts does she need to pay?"
Man: "2500" he said looking at the fresh cheque in his hands.
Maan handed over a 2500 cheque. Then another 7000 cheque.
Maan: "Don't trouble her about rent ever again now"
The man looked at the cheque in his hands and then ran off with a huge grin on his face.
Geet looked at the chequebook in Maan's hand in shock.
Geet: "You... That was... Oh my god!" she said still in shock
Maan: "It's okay. That's what friends are for right? You left your purse in the car" he said and handed over the purse
Geet: "Maan, I can't just --"
Maan: "If you say anything about money then I swear I will break our friendship right there and then" he hissed
Maan: "Good night Geet" he said and left.
Geet watched Maan leave the building. Then looked at her purse. It felt heavy. She opened her purse and saw a whole load of cash inside it. She looked at it in shock. She also saw a note attached to the money. It said:
Geet smiled, and entered her flat.
Precap: Maan kisses Geet on the cheek
