''Raji...'' she couldn't say further as Maan claimed her lips one more time just to ensure she doesn't utter that b******'s name one more time.
Chapter-25 The inescapable
''This...what is this?'' Geet made a face as she glanced at the liquid contents of the bowl.
''Don't know about you but normal human beings like us call it 'soup'.'' Maan replied casually looking out of the window as he knew the angry glares and tantrums which will follow after his statement.
''You...you...urrrgghh I hate...'' she stopped instantly as she saw her last word made Maan snap his head at her direction.Geet's heart skipped a beat as she saw Maan uncrossing his arms and slowly advancing towards her with a killer intensity in his eyes which made her gulp.
''Have it'' he stated in a dangerous whisper sitting in front of her on their bed.
''Sorry...you know I didn't mean...'' before she could complete her sentence,Maan grabbed the back of her head and pulled her face forward and looked into her eyes with the same intensity ''chup...bilkul chup.''
Geet's eyes welled up not because of the pain he inflicted upon her with his actions but because of the very thought that she has disobeyed him once again.She kind of knew that there was something,something which kept bothering him,a part of his life-probably a painful part which was still hidden from her but she has preferred to dismiss that thought always...it was only at times like this when she wished she knew him fully so that she would be able to soothe that painful part of his life...but alas she couldn't.
As soon as he saw her eyes welling up,he left her instantly and looked away.He closed his eyes and clutched the bed sheet tightly in self-disgust.
As he got up to leave,geet held his wrist.Maan looked at her and fell his heart sink with even more self-hatred as he looked at her innocent,pleading eyes.She held one of her ear's with her free hand asking for forgiveness.
''Geet please have the soup before it turns cold'' Maan stated gravely clenching his fist at the same time.
''Wont you feed me'' she asked innocently in a low voice.
Maan sighed looking away, ''no'' he stated coldly and went out of the room.
Geet saw his retreating back as a lone tear finally escaped her eyes.''Sorry'' she whispered still looking at the door and closed her eyes letting the tears flow freely.

''Is she all right?" Vasundhara asked in an authoritative,no-nonsense tone trying to shield her concern.
''Of...of course ma'am she's absolutely all right...Maan sir is also with her.'' Meera replied nervously.
Vasundhara clenched her jaws ''have you spoken to her?''
Meera crossed her fingers ''yes ma'am why not...I talked to her just...just two days ago'' she prayed hard so that Vasu buys her lie.
''Hmm...fine then...thank you for your co-operation Meera and also for being there with my bahu all the while.''
''It's...it's all right ma'am...she's my friend right...Its not a big deal anyways.''
''Hmm...ok I think I shall hang up now...good night meera'' saying this Vasu cut the call and sighed in relief.
Meera cut the call and looked at the phone ''you think I'm a fool?''
''Care for the Khurana bahu my foot...all are concerned about the unborn foetus'' saying this she twisted her lip and threw the phone on the couch.

Once again he have proved what's the only thing he is good at.
Once again he have given her pain...once again!
Once again he has let the monster inside him take over his humane side.
After all the promises he has made to himself...he has again done what he never wanted.Maan fell on his knees cried out loud after an exhausting,self-destructive tai-chi session he uses to punish himself.
His breath came out in rasps and eyes grew red in anger and pain.
''I'm sorry Geet'' he manged to say through ragged breathing.
That's when he heard his cell ringing somewhere.

''What am I supposed to do if he is asking for more ransom? Leave my wife here all alone and then come there all the way from London and shut his mouth?''
''But he's threatening to spill the beans to the police...and you don't have to leave bhabhi alone,bring her along.''
''Oh please Dev keep your stupid suggestion with yourself...the Docs out here have strictly forbidden her from travelling anywhere thanks to what she has done to herself so forget.''
''Then what are supposed to do bro?''
After a long pause,Maan repled in a grave voice ''kill himm.''
''But bro what if the police...''
''I don't count him as a man who is scared of the police...and the one who talks about police is the one who fears them...do you really want to be counted as one of them?''
''Good...stop fidgeting over this matter as the policemen are nothing but a bunch of jokers hired by the Government to eat on it's money...and anyways no police force or intelligence bureau of the world dares to question Maan Singh Khurana and nor a bloody low-life dares to cross his limits with me...he has to pay the price for turning away from his promise and threaten me.''
''Fine bro...it shall be done.''
''Better do it as quickly as possible...I'm sick and tired of this Rajinder Sahini coming up every now and since the last few days...just finish this matter once and for all.''
''Yes bro...good night.''
Just as he pressed the red button on his cell,he heard something break into pieces followed by a gasp.
His heart skipped several beats as he prepared himself for the inevitable,the inescapable...he turned slowly looking at the floor which now had the broken glass pieces and spilled orange juice and then looked up slowly to see the trembling form of Geet standing at the foot of the door,fear written all over her face.
Precap-''What do you want?'' she asked in an almost-choking voice.
He leaned onto her and whispered dangerously ''you.''
