Tighten your seat belts,
cuz Part 8's on the way!!!!!!!!!!Part 8:
Meera also decided to go back to US with Geet and Rahul. The contract with the company that she had been working for as an ineterior designer had been terminated, and since she had no family either, she thought it best to go back to US with her friend. There was no point in staying in India.
She had become really good friends with Geet and was not ready to part from her, and since Geet was pregnant, she knew she'd need a woman's help.
Since Meera was still in touch with Yash, they contacted him to seek help regarding Geet's visa for US. Meera had a Green card, and Rahul had a student's visa, Geet was the only one with the problem. But this too was soon sorted as Meera and Yash's green cards quickened Geet's passport and visa procedures, and within a month they found themselves at the IGI (Indira Gandhi International) Airport, waiting for their flight.
They bought a house in Boston. Since that was where Rahul's college was and where Yash too lived. Geet, Rahul and Meera were all living in the same house, next door to Yash's. It made life easy. Not that Yash and his nephew and niece were easy to handle, but still, it was good to have friends closeby. It was actually very strange, that how several lonely people could come together and make a family for themselves. That's what they were, a family. They would everyday eat at Geet, Meera and Rahul's, cuz that's where the girls lived (you know how girls can cook better, well in this case atleast). They would hang out at each other's houses, sometimes at Yash's and sometimes at their's.
Both the houses were almost connected, and the very high frequency of visits made it seem like it was the same house!
Both the kids had grown very fond of their uncle's new friends, and would leave no opportunity to play their formidable pranks on Rahul and Yash, while Geet and Meera would laugh.
Yash would not stop flirting with Meera, and this became a daily routine for them.
Geet got into MIT for Bachelors in Architecture, and since she had already lost a year, she was working at double the normal pace regarding her studies. She was doing two years worth of studying in one year, while also working at a very reputed construction firm in Boston that had been established 50 years ago, its founder who was still alive, and whose children were running it now. Geet had a very low post there cuz she had no qualification, but she did not mind it. She was doing it merely for the experience. She chose this line cuz she had had a lot of exposure to it while working with Maan and had really liked what it was all about.
Meera mean while was working in the same company as a designer and was side by side pursuing an M.Tech in Civil Engeneering from MIT. She had also managed to get admission there.
Yash too worked at the same place in the Managing department while pusuing his MBA from MIT too. Rahul was the only one not working. He wanted to complete his studies in peace and was in his 3rd year of Mechanical Engeneering.
So, as an overview of their small so called "Family", they lived at the same house, worked at the same office, and went to the same college.
Geet's pregnancy was progressing at an alarming rate, and before they knew it, another member, a very tiny one at that, was added to their family as Geet gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. 'Roshni', they named her.
Everybody was very very happy at the arrival of this new cute litlle child. Geet initially took a month off from work and college, but eventually, everybody else took turns looking after little Roshni. Geet however stayed home as much as she could. The arrival for her daughter had wiped all the remnants of her grievances from her heart. She finally felt at peace. Her large eyes and her small cute little hands and feet were all she needed to be happy. And it wasn't just her. Everybody was very happy. They had all become more responsible and efficient. They all finished their work as quickly as possible so that they could come home and play with their little niece. Geet had not a moment to herself now, cuz everybody would hang around her room only. But she was very grateful to them for all the love they showered upon her daughter.
Life for now was going very well!!
So that was it!!
Hope you enjoyed!!
And yes, stay tuned for more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
