The Restauraunt - FFChapter 1
Beep. Beep. Beep.
Handa looked at her watch which was beeping continuously. It was
4:00pm. The time where she had to get ready and go to work.
looked around herself. She lived in a small, but cosy flat which she
payed the rent for. She didn't really care it wasn't her own house. At
least she was living under something.
Geet is stressed about 24/7. She doesn't get enough salary to pay the
rent and if she does, there is none money left for herself.
went up to her wardrobe and took out her uniform. She quickly went into
the small washroom and changed out of her t-shirt and skinny jeans to
the navy uniform.
Geet folded her hands and read a small prayer and hoped her day will go smoothly. Although she knew, it always didn't.
Geet was so poor, she had to skip breakfast and lunch. She had JUST enough money for dinner and a taxi to, and back.
Geet quickly tied her hair in a messy ponytail and exited her flat.
Geet couldn't find a taxi. So she jumped into a random car. She really
wanted to get to work early. She can't bare to listen to any more of the
lectures that come from her boss.
She looked at her side and
looked at him. He was smart. He was wearing a neat suit, and polished
shoes. He was also wearing sunglasses and he had a stubble. He also had
in his hands, a laptop.
Maan Singh Khurana.
Maan took off his glasses, and looked at the young lady in front of him.
looked tired. She had dark under eyes. Her face was pale, and she
looked sad. But she looked pretty, and innocent all the same.
Maan suddenly felt sorry for this young lady, but he immediately returned from his trance.
Maan: "Excuse me? But you can't just jump into some stranger's car" he said angrily
"I'm really sorry but I honestly have to get to work! I couldn't find a
taxi and I don't want to hear more lecture's from my boss. Please be
kind and drop me to my work!" she said
Maan didn't seem convinced.
Geet folded her hands and looked at him in a pleading way
Maan: "Fine. Driver, take us to..." he looked at Geet so she could announce the destination
Geet: "Ciao Roma, please" she said with relief
Maan: "Ciao Roma, huh?" he said, impressed
Geet: "Yeah" she said and looked down at her fingers
Maan knew that Geet was in some sort of trouble. So he asked.
Maan: "Is everything alright? You look... Tired?" he said, cursing himself for asking her a question.
Maan: "Why do I care?" he thought to himself
Geet: "So where do you work?" she asked, ignoring the question
Maan clearly understood she didn't want to talk about it.
Maan: "Khurana Constructions. I own it" he said proudly
Geet: "Wow!" she said impressed
The car suddenly came to a halt.
Driver: "Sir, here is your destination" he said
Geet took out her purse and looked at the money left. It was only a few pennies.
Geet: "I don't have any --"
Maan: "It's okay. I don't charge" he said and smiled. Then looked away, realizing what he had just done. He SMILED?!
smiled and thanked her Baabaji for introducing her knight in a shining
armor. She exited the car and ran into the restauraunt.
Maan looked at the running woman. He looked at her going in the restauraunt and smiled in satisfaction.
Driver: "Sir, where to now?" he asked
Maan: "Khurana Constructions" he said in his usual stern voice, and got back to his work on the laptop.
Geet on the other hand was being lectured about how her attendance was bad.
Geet: "I'm very sorry! It's just that --"
"NO EXCUSES! Now get to work young lady, before I change my mind and
fire you!" he then stomped off leaving a teary Geet behind.
Geet: "Why does this always have to happen to me?!" she cursed her luck and started her work... A few hours later ...
Geet was now cleaning the tables.
Geet: "I'm so exhausted" she said and sighed
She heard some footsteps and looked at the man who walked inside.
"It's that man! I'm going to make him the best food he has ever tasted
today!" she said and threw the cloth away and got out her notepad.
Geet went up to the table where Maan was sitting who was looking at some files.
Geet: "He must be a workaholic" she thought to herself and coughed for attention.
Maan put the file on the table and looked up to the lady who coughed for attention. He naturally smiled, then looked away.
Maan: "It's her... Wait, why do I smile when I see her?" he wondered to himself and looked back at Geet.
Geet: "Can I take your order, sir?" she said sweetly
Maan looked at the menu for a few seconds.
Maan: "Um... Number 41, chicken lasagne, and champagne for drink please" he announced
Geet noted down his order, while she did so, Maan looked at her. His stern expression slowly turned soft. He was mesmerized.
Geet: "Anything else, sir?" she asked
Maan was still mesmerized.
Geet: "Hello, sir?" she waved her hands in front of his face
Maan broke out of his trance and looked away.
Maan: "No" he huffed
Geet walked away.
"Ajeeb kisam ka admee hai. First he's nice, then he's arrogant. Waise, I
like guys who like Italian food" she thought to herself and then cursed
herself for thinking such stupid things.
Maan: "Beauty and brains" he thought to himself then started reading the file again.
After 10 minutes, Geet arrived again with his order.
Geet: "Enjoy!" she said and turned around.
Geet, who was heading off to a couple to ask for their order, stopped in her trance.
Everything was blurry, she couldn't see anymore. Her knees couldn't take it anymore...
was about to take a bite of the lasagne, stopped. He looked up, then
looked at his left side. His eyes widened. He ran for it, and grabbed
her just in time.
Precap: Doctor: "She hasn't been eating properly, which has caused her this sudden fainting" Maan looked at the Doctor worriedly.I hope you liked it.
