Night was creeping in and geet had
still locked herself in her room. Geet wipes away her tears and stands up.
Geet: I have to go talk to maan. I am not going to let him
break away his relationship with Sasha because of me. Even though Sasha put false
allegations on me she only said that because she cares for maan. But I won't allow myself to be the
reason for their relationship to break apart. Sasha has more of a right on him than me. They have been childhood friends, while
I don't even know if maan and I are even friends anymore.
As geet heads over toward the door
her foot bangs on the nightstand knocking her purse down causing Rahul's
necklace to fall out.
Geet picks up the necklace and brings
it up to her face. Vicky's words
echoed in the back of her mind, "but geet I don't think it's a coincidence that it landed up to
maan. I told him that night that I
felt like this necklace was like a lucky charm for him. I think fate is playing something
"We will see if fate is still playing something here today" geet says,
as she holds on tight to the necklace.
She heads out the door and starts to
look for maan and finally spots him.
Her legs start to feel numb and stay rooted at its place once geet sees
maan shirtless and performing an intense tai chi work out. She hides herself behind one of the
pillars, and even though her brain tells her to escape from the situation while
she can, she can't seem to resist the temptation to admire maan and his
Her breathing and heart rate starts
to increase as her eyes explored maan's entire Greek god like body.Maan was in his own world and was
taking out and releasing his frustration in the form of tai chi.
Not only did the images of Sasha
insulting geet keep playing back in his head, but his moments with geet from
the time they met did as well. The night in the forest, their encounter in the
fitting room at the mall, their dance, their first kiss, him reading the
journal entries, becoming friends at the hospital, and their kiss and fight from
last night all played back in his mind.
Geet was totally lost in a trance
that she starts to move around the curtains and pillars trying to admire maan
from every angle she could causing the sound of her payaals to break through
the silence looming in the air.
Maan hears the sound and looks to the
side and says, " kaun hai?"
Geet gets frightened that she may get
caught for her act and tries to run away, but in the process she slips on one
of the curtains, causing geet to lose grip of the necklace, which slides across
the floor, but geet was able to maintain her balance and hide from maan.
Maan concentrates back to his tai
chi. Geet looks and sees that maan didn't notice anything. She closes her eyes and takes a sigh of
relief. She decides to take one
last glance at maan before she leaves to end the restlessness in her
heart. As she turns her head maan
She starts to look here and there,
but didn't find him. She started
to doubt herself, "was I imagining maan...was I imagining him shirtless?
Her throat started to feel dry and she
felt like she had butterflies in her stomach and chills running down her body. She rests her head against a pillar and
places her hand against her heart.
Her heart was beating like a humming bird held in the hand frantic to
escape. Her grip on her dupatta
gets tighter as these sensation continued to course through her. She closes her
eyes and murmers, " Hai babaji mujhe kya hora hai...yeh kaisa ehsaas hai...yeh me
kya soch rahi ho?"
She didn't want to feel this
way. She didn't know how to stop
herself from feeling this way. All
she ends up doing is hurting both maan and herself. But she didn't know how to
forget what love did to her the first time. How can she trust it again? The love that she had for maan
had dug its own place in her heart, but right next to her fear of love. A tear escapes from her closed eyes, tired
of being in such a crossroad. She wanted her old life back'she wanted her old
self back the carefree cheerful and paagli type of girl who never had a reason
to cry. All she seemed to do now
was cry. She felt alone just like
maan said she would feel if she pushed him away. He was always there to wipe her tears, always there to
comfort her and give her a meaning to live life again, but she felt like she
had no other choice and that this was something she just had to get used to.
Just then something touched her against her cheek. Her eyes slowly open as if scared to see, which pair of eyes
she may lose herself too.
Just like she feared her eyes met
with the most warm and intoxicating eyes.
She quickly closed her eyes again knowing her mind was playing tricks
with her again. After couple
seconds of reassuring herself that it was just her allusion she opens her
eyes. As she looks there was no
Geet to herself "That's it geet..."you
seriously need to see a doc'."without being able to finish her sentence she
gets pulled by the arm and before she could let out a scream maan covers her mouth
with his hand. Their eyes meet and get locked.
Maan breaks the silence by asking, "geet
tum yaha kyu ayee ho?
For second she even forgot the reason
why she came here. All she could process was maan's proximity and closeness
against her body. Everything else
seemed a blur.
"run" was the only thing that came to
her mind. Maan holds onto her dupatta forcing her to stop in her
tracks. There was nowhere to escape not today. Geet gasps and holds on tightly on her duppata so it didn't fall off.
"All I asked you was why are you hear
and you run. If I had asked the question why were you secretly checking me out
than what would you have done? Faint?" maan asks her as his fingers sensuously
caress her shoulder as he places her dupatta in place.
Geet's cheeks started to turn pink
from embarrassment or was it blush?
" Your leaving without even telling
me why you finally decide to see and talk to me? All I asked you was why are you here, but instead of
answering me your running away.
What am I supposed to think? Why are you doing this to me geet."
It hurt geet hearing maan voice out the pain she was giving him. She manages to control herself and find the words to speak."I came...I came here to
talk to you about what happened this morning", geet manages to say stuttering a
Maan: Kyun? When I came to talk to
you geet you didn't even give me a response. You are finally going to let me in
and tell me what is going on? What you are hiding from me?
Geet: I am not hiding anything and I
made that clear last night. I just
came to tell you that I appreciate you standing up for me against the accusations
of Sasha, but'
maan cuts her off.
Maan: listen to me geet. No matter
how much we may fight, I won't tolerate someone insulting you, especially in my
Geet: I appreciate what you are doing
for me, but I want you to apologize to her maan.
Geet: If you are not willing to do it
than I will.
Maan holds on to geet's shoulders and
tries to make her understand.
Maan: Geet what is wrong with you?
Why would you go apologize to her if you have done nothing wrong?
Geet pushes maan's hands off her and
turns her face away from him not being able to meet his eyes.
Geet: Because of me you are not going
to work and canceling meetings! Because of me you're enduring all the pain that
I am giving to you. And now because of me you are going to break your
relationship with your childhood friend.
How do you expect me to live with myself knowing that I am separating
you from any sort of happiness!
Maan: geet listen to me. Do you know in these past 4 years I had
forgotten what happiness tasted like or how to laugh until I met you and you
are saying that you are the reason I don't have any happiness!
We share a strong bond geet and if I
don't go to work for a couple of days because of that bond we share than how
will it always remain strong.
Geet no matter how much you try to
block me out, your eyes tell me a different story, a hidden truth and even pain. And I will wait for that day when you
will trust me enough to tell me yourself.
I will always be there for you and always stand up for you even if you
don't want me to geet. The bond we
share has grown too deep to be able to break now even if you want it too. It is
way too late for'
Maan doesn't even finish his
sentence, realizing what he just said. " The bond we share has grown too deep
to be able to break now even if you want it too"'.how could he say that when he
is supposed to stay away from her, when he is supposed to loosen the bond they
share. He leaves thinking he said too much and tries to distance himself from
her before he opens his mouth even more and ends up telling her about his
feelings for her as well.
Those last words were a direct hit to
geet. " The bond we share has grown to deep to be able to break now even if you
want it to geet".
Geet falls on her knees as maan's
words began to sink into her.
Heart: I told you geet, even maan
agrees with me now. Your
relationship, your bond has become too deep for any of you to run away from it
now. It is a matter of time that
you will lose the little self-control you have left and those days are numbered
Every aspect of maan invites you to
him and makes your own heart feel good and beat faster'it makes me feel all
jittery and I don't want to lose that feeling geet'I don't. After a long time I am seeing you laugh
and happy because of maan. Why fight it geet? Why?
After all the accusations you made against him he is still
willing to stand by your side. Kyun? Because he is in love with you too. If you still think that maan could ever
break your heart, than you have become blind!
Geet wanted to burst. Wanted to
scream everything out.
You want to know what I am hiding? What pain is eating me? I am in love with
you but I am scared! I will lose my mind if you leave me and tear me apart just
like dev did.
"Maan'.you have always been there as
my savior in time of need and even today you have admitted to being my savior
even if I don't want you too.
Everything you do makes my heart go crazy. If you are near my heart beats faster. If you are far away than my heart feels
empty and restless just to see you.
I don't know when you came to my heart and made your own place. Now the only question remains, what do
I do now? What do I dooo",
she helplessly cries out.
I tried to just be friends, but that
is too dangerous now. I can't control myself around you. Maan I have to stay
away from you. Staying in the same
roof as you is not helping. But I
know you won't let me leave this house at least until my hand gets better. She starts to move her fingers and they
were not hurting. It is just a
matter of a day or two than I will have to leave. That is the only solution left!
Another tear escapes from the fact
that she will lose someone like maan in her life. But that is the path she is willing to take and suffer with.
Vicky decided to have dinner with
maan and geet today. It would
bring some happiness into his life and make him forget about his pain.
As he was walking through the door he
saw it cracked and with blood stains.
Vicky to himself: oh my god what
He walks toward the kitchen and
almost dropped the dinner from his hands.
He was in shock with the condition
and mess of the kitchen. There was
flour and chocolate batter everywhere.
On the walls and kitchen counter tops.
The pizza was there but uncooked.
Vicky: what the hell happened here
last night? This place looks like a war zone.
Speaking of which, where are the two
Vicky heads over to geet's room but
sees no one there.
He then decides to check maan's
room. As he was going maan comes
out of the room himself after taking a shower, unfortunately hearing nothing of
Vicky: hey bhai!
Maan: hi Vicky. what brings you here?
Vicky: why am I invading your privacy
Maan: shut up Vicky. At least give it a rest today.
Vicky: sorry bhai I was just trying
to lighten the mood.
Maan: we have bigger problems in our
Just then his stomach growls.
Vicky: Is one of them that you are
Maan: Now that you have mentioned it.
Geet and I haven't eaten since
Vicky: Really? Than why is the
kitchen a mess?
Maan starts to stutter, trying to
find a good excuse.
Maan: Geet tried to make dinner last
night after nakul spilled the food, but it didn't work since she only had one
arm. And when I came to help the
place was already a mess.
Vicky: interesting story. So why didn't you eat? I mean the pizza
is still left uncooked?
Maan: uhhh.we..we both got too sleepy
and decided just to go to sleep.
maan couldn't think of any other
Vicky to himself: what a weird story,
but whatever I know maan is trying to hide something especially when he
Vicky: okay nice story. so where's geet?
Maan: uhh I think she is downstairs.
Vicky: okay let's go get her so we
can all eat lunch because I have brought our favorite, pasta.
Maan and Vicky head downstairs, but
can't seem to find Geet.
They decide to split up and find
her. As maan is looking for he
slips on something and falls on the ground. Thankfully he did not get hurt. He looks over to see what made him fall and he sees geet's
necklace or more like her brother's necklace. He brings up closer to his face and just watches twist in
Maan :Why does this necklace keep on
coming and leaving me?
Just than maan hears a voice. He start's to move toward it. It was as if someone was singing or
even humming. He follows the sound and ends up coming to the terrace. Geet was
silently sitting on a swinging chair with a guitar in her hands. She was composing a song occasionally
taking breaks and writing in a journal.
Her song was echoing her pain.
shikwa hain zindagi se tumse gila nahi
i have complaints with my
life but none with u
main khud se hi khafa hu tumse khafa nahi
i'm upset with myself but not with u
umm umm ummm ummm ummm ummm...
(she plays some guitar chords now).
Maan didn't know why, but he felt that this song
was about him and geet. He was angry and his hands were unconditionally turning
into fists. He knew it all along
Geet was hiding something, but till when will he wait for her to open up to
him. It was obvious from these
words that geet didn't mean any of the accusation she made against him. He was
tired of this hide and seek game.
Till when? He can't stand
seeing geet in this condition, which infuriated maan, the most.
All of a sudden maan feels a hand on his
shoulder. He looks back and sees
it was Vicky. But by looking back
Vicky couldn't believe the anger and hurt he saw in his eyes.
Vicky: bro'.bro relax please. It is going to be
Maan: How is it going to be okay Vicky when she is
keeping all her pain inside her? I
can't see her like this. I just can't.
Vicky looks over to geet and she was working still working on some guitar chords.
Vicky: Bro please go from here. I will see what I can do. You just go somewhere and eat and calm
Maan takes out his frustration by punching a hole
in the wall and then storms off.
Vicky: bhai can't you find a way to relax and take
out your frustration without hurting yourself
Maan pretends he didn't hear that and just leaves.
VIcky and geet confrontation.
VIcky:I promise that
you will lose this battle and your love for maan will overpower you and then
you will finish this song when you are finished from being in denial. In fact let's make a bet.
I bet you
that in less than 3 days you will realize you can't fight with your love for
maan anymore because I doubt that you will be able to hold yourself back. If I
win than you will owe me and whenever that day comes you will have to repay me.
