Maan pokes his head out the car'Are
you guys coming or do I have to send a personal invitation for you guys".
Daadi: we are coming'.
Daadi just looks up to the sky and
thanks babaji from the bottom of her heart and wishes that her family always
stays happy and that an evil eye doesn't get cast on them.
Maan steps out of the car and asks
Nakul if his bedroom and geet's bedroom is ready.
Nakul: yes sir everything is set and
Maan thanks him and then goes to help
geet to get out of the car.
Maan: Let me show you to your room
As they were walking to her room this
place looked so different from the first time geet came in here.
Geet: Maan whose house is this?I thought you lived in the Khurana
Mansion, but this place doesn't look like the Khurana Mansion.
Maan: This is the out house geet and
this whole place is yours. This
way you can be comfortable and have the whole place to yourself.
And look we have reached your room.
Everything a woman wanted was there. There was not one thing maan left out
so she could feel at home.She even opened her closet and she
saw salwar kamizes and saris in there.
Geet: Maan you even bought me new
Maan: If you don't like them I could
ask Nakul to bring your clothes from your apartment.
Geet: that is not what I meant.
Maan: Yes geet I even bought you
clothes. It is not a big deal. I
am your friend and friends help each other out the last time I checked.
Geet runs and hugs him.
" Thank you" she whispers.
Maan: Geet I learned something knew
Geet: and what's that?
Maan: That if I act nice and care for
you I will always get a hug in return.
Maybe I should do this more often'(he says laughing).
Geet laughs as well and gives him a
Maan: geet you rest and relax the
food will be ready soon. (He says still chuckling).
After taking a tour of the house,
geet rested and took a nap in her bedroom.
Maan had changed and decided to get
some things done before dinner. He
goes to inform geet about this, but when he arrives at her room he sees that
she was sound asleep.
He just looked at her peaceful face
and decided not to disturb her. He then heads over to Khurana
Constructions. Every employee started to get
scared. The boss finally had come
back after two days.
Maan comes in and tells adi to call
everybody in for a staff meeting now.
Adi: gggeee sssiirr.
Pinky: oh God. Boss is back after two
days and he has called a staff meeting.
Only God can save us now.
Romeo: where is geet? She is really
good at handling maan sir.
Sasha: Just shut up Romeo. MK doesn't need any one, especially
that village girl to handle maan.
I am even glad she is gone.
Tasha: Silly girl.
Adi: this is not the time to be
talking about geet, but to go to the meeting and seeing what mmmaaan ssirr has
Pinky: Adi is right let's go.
Everyone goes to the conference room
and takes a seat. Maan was sitting
in his chair and his back was turned to everyone. Everyone was just looking at each
other, whispering, and wondering what maan was going to say and why isn't he
Maan than turns his chair and then
faces everyone.It didn't even take a second and
everyone was quiet. Maan than starts to talk.
Maan: As you all know I haven't been
here for two days due to personal reasons. And as it turns out it doesn't look
like I am coming back any time soon.
Maybe in a few days or it could be a week or more.
So during this time I don't want you
guys to be slacking from your jobs.
And in case you guys need me for an important reason than call me on my
"MK if you don't mind me asking, is
everything okay that you will not be here?" Sasha interrupts.
Maan just looks at her and then says,
" I still have some personal work to take care of at home".
Then Romeo gathers up the courage to
ask, " maan sir, do you know why geet has not come either?"
Maan: She is on sick leave for now
and whenever she feels better she will be coming back to work.
Maan: anymore questions?
All employees just looked at each
other but no one had another question or more like dared to ask another
Maan: Okay than go back to your jobs.
Everyone got up and was leaving. Maan then remembered something.
Maan: Adi wait up.
Adi: yyyeess sir.
Maan: Any important files that I need
to look at bring them to me now and if I have time I will look at them at home.
Adi: Okay sir.
Geet finally woke up. She notices that it was night now and
the whole house was dark and silent, sending a creepy chill down her spine.
Geet was scared of the dark. She leaves her room trying to find
Geet: maan? Maan are you there?
All of a sudden geet stops as she
feels something tug on her dupatta.
She gathers up the courage and slowly looks behind herself. She sees almost a ghost like figure and
then all she could think of was running for her life.
Geet: "Bhooot" geet screams
and runs down the stairs.
Maan just walks in through the doors
when geet slams right into him.
Geet was about to let out another
scream, but then maan covers her mouth and corners her to the wall.
Geet was shaking now out of fright
now all she could see was someone's gazing eyes looking at her intensely. Maan
slowly lowers his hand and along the way caresses her lips. Their
breaths start to mingle and both of them just stand against each other in the dark and looming
night. Geet's heart was picking up
pace, which was once racing out of fright now racing from maan's touch and
sensations that his breath sent down her spine, even making her toes curl. She could sense herself losing herself
as she starts to inch closer to maan's lips. Her eyes start to get moist, as she couldn't resist herself
even though she was trying so hard too.
At the same moment maan switches the
lights on. Geet comes back to reality and jumps back shocked with her
behavior. She stares at maan
trying to figure out what his reaction is toward all this, but couldn't figure
Tears start to spill out from her
eyes with all the emotions raging through her. Geet ashamed tries to run away, but before she could maan
grabs a hold of her hand. Geet
stops in her tracks instantly and cringes with his touch. She tries to free her hand, but maan
was not letting go any time soon.
She manages to mutter "maan please".
Maan what just totally baffled with
what just happened. Why was she
running in the dark?why was geet crying?
Maan finally just tugs on geet's hand
and she comes back slamming into his chest.
Geet didn't know how to meet his
eyes. She didn't know how to
explain her behavior to maan when she couldn't even explain it to herself. Fresh tears started to spill out as the
idea that she might of just destroyed her new friendship with maan with her
behavior. She didn't want to lose
instantly hugs maan. Maan hugs her
back and strokes her hair a bit as concern started to form in his eyes.
Geet: maan don't ever leave me.
Please don't ever leave me. I 'I', she starts to stutter.
Maan: Geet it's okay'.I am here. Why would I leave you? I would never do
such a thing to you.
Geet: It was so dark and I was trying
to look for you, but I couldn't find you.
Maan: Why didn't you turn on the
Geet: I was afraid of the dark to
even think. All I was thinking was to find you.
Maan: Geet I am sorry. I should of left the lights on.
Geet than breaks out of the hug as she
remembers that her dupatta was not on her and starts to feel uncomfortable.
Maan senses this and then looks the
Maan: ummm I think you might have
dropped your dupatta as you were running.
I will wait here as you go get it.
Geet: I am not going back up there.
Maan: Why not?
Geet: because there is a ghost.
Geet: something caught and tugged on
my dupatta and when I looked behind myself it looked like a ghost.
Maan: Geet I lived in here for 4
years by myself and I don't think I saw a ghost here. He says laughing.
Geet: I don't care I know what I saw.
Maan: Okay then let's go and check it
Geet: I said it already I am not
going back up there.
Maan: Geet stop acting like a
child. Here hold my hand if it
makes you feel any better.
Geet quickly replies "Nahiii" with a
little emphasis making the situation awkward.
Geet quickly retorts, "meri matlab
hai nahii I am not a little kid to hold on to your hand".
Maan doesn't listen and just grabs on
to her hand and pulls her upstairs.
Geet at first fights back. "choro
mujhe'meine kahata choro mujhe'MAAN!"
Maan irritated pins her against the
wall and says, "Chup bilkun chup" as he silences her with his finger and stares
at her with his intense eyes.
Maan: Geet look into my eyes. Geet'
Geet slowly raises her eyes and
Maan: Now tell me geet are you still
scared? The fright that was once making you shake is it still there?
Geet looks back at herself and
notices her fright was gone. She
starts to ask herself, " why am I not scared? why has my heart calmed down.
maan: Geet your silence speaks a lot. Let this show you how I will always be
here to take all your pain and fears away. I forcedly held on to your hand to
show you that there is nothing to fear when I am beside you'when I am here. I
will always be here closer than your own shadow and protect you.
Geet felt like maan had read her mind
and answered her question. Maan
was right and geet just noticed how every time maan touches her, her heart
starts to calm down. His warmth is
all she needs for her heart to feel protected and safe.
Maan lets her go now and asks her "
now that you have calmed down do you want to go check out the so-called "bhoot"
that you saw?" he says grinning a little.
"Wipe that grin off your face it is
not funny. If you are just going
to make fun of me than I don't need your help" she says as she walks away.
Maan: Geet rucko'Geet wait I am
coming with you.
She still continues to walk away not
listening. But then all of a
sudden she freezes in her place.
Maan catches up and gets confused
looking at geet's expression. He looks over to what she was looking at and bursts
Maan: Geet is this the so called
"bhoot"'this? It's a plant. Your
dupatta had gotten caught on a plant.
Geet started to turn pink from
embarrassment. She quickly goes
and tries to unhook the dupatta, but just couldn't.
Maan goes and carefully unhooks the
dupatta from the plant and places it neatly on geet's neck and shoulders.
All of a sudden geet's stomach
Maan: uhhh geet you might be hungry
so let's go eat.
Geet: After the extra running I just
did who wouldn't be, she says smiling.
Maan: okay I am going to go wash up
and meet you in the kitchen in a few minutes.
"You sure you are okay if I leave you
alone for a few minutes" he chuckles.
Geet: that is not funny.
Maan: yes it is'wait until I tell
Geet: oh no you are not telling him.
If you do I won't here the end of it.
Maan: My point exactly
"Maaan" geet says in a
