Next morning, Geet got up and stretched herself...She was
protesting to open her eyes...but couldn't... She heard a voice- Good Morning...!
It was a familiar voice and our bubbly Geet answered opening her
eyes- Good Morning...Ma!
Maan!... She almost screeched
saying that word...Maan was standing right in front of her and she couldn't
believe her eyes...She rubbed them twice and hit herself four times...still she
could see him... She thought- Eh
le! mujhe to yeh...subah bhi dekhne lage...Main bhi na! Maan laughed softly and then
advanced towards her... She still was not believing it was him... She mumbled- Maan! aap aise hi mere khayalon
mein aatein hai...and kuch bole bina hi chale jaate hain! Not fair... Maan continued smiling and
progressing towards her... She spoke again- Aap
bahut akdu hain...mera phone kyun nahi uthaya kal? Maan remained silent... She was
sure enough that she was dreaming...She continued to move away... Maan...aap jaaiyye! mere khayalon
mein mat aaiyye! She
turned back and tried to leave when Maan caught her by hand...
mein...bahut bolti ho!
Geet's eyes widened- Maan!
She touched every nerve of his body to confirm she wasn't
dreaming... She was scared now... He wasn't... all the time she thought of
excuses she would give if someone caught them red-handed... he kissed her face
all over...At last she snapped him back- Maan!
aap yahaan kya kar rahe ho? kisi ne dekh liya to? Daarji ne dekh liya to? Meri
aur aapki lassi bana denge! Aap yahaan aaye hi kyun? Maan...aap
Maan closed her lips Chup!...bilkul chup! Geet sighed and thought- Eh lo...inka world
famous..."chup bilkul chup" shuru ho gaya! She
replied sarcastically- ho gaya! drama ho gaya! aap jao! She pushed him away...
Maan Singh Khurana itni jaldi kahin nahi jaata! Geet hit her temple in disgust... okay! Geet ka hone waala pati to
jaa sakta hai na? Maan
rejected it outright... She released herself and shouted going... phir khade raho yahin...main to
naashta karne jaa rahin hoon... She waved away...he smiled in return...
Brij was already seated on the table next to Geet's chair... As soon as she entered, Brij made her sit after hugging her with almost tears in his eyes...
Brij- Oye Geet! ab to tu...chali jayegi na!
Geet tried to console herself- Veerji...we promised...no tears!
He quickly wiped them off- hmm...no tears...chalo baitho...maa ne paraanthe banaye hain...
For a moment Geet forgot about Maan- arey waah...paranthe!
Then suddenly her eyes went to her room and she recalled Maan...
Brij- kya dekh rahi hai Geet?
Geet- nahi...kuch nahi veerji...
Brij- kha phir...
She thought that Geet might be hungry...she thought of a plan...
Brij- ho gaya!
Geet- ji...mamma! main soch rahi thi...kal se saare functions shuru ho jayenge and I'll be busy...to main aaj thodi studies karna chahti hoon...I shouldn't go to the College all blank...to main kuch khana le jaa rahi hoon...beech mein khaane ke liye!
Rano- tujhe explanation dene ki zaroorat nahi hai...parathe le jaa!
Geet kissed rano and filled her tray with aloo paratha and chutney...then she thought that Maan wouldn't eat that so she put them back...
Rano- kya hua? leja na!
Geet- nahi mamma...itne saare parathe khaongi to moti ho jaongi...main apne liye cheese omlette bana leti hoon!
She quickly prepared her omlette and rushed back to her room... She bolted the door behind and whispered- Maan!
Maan was sitting on her study table...looking at her...She was holding a tray emitting smell which was mouth-watering...
Maan- bade attitude mein gayii thi?kya hua?
Geet- ab...jo bhi ho! pati ko bhooka to nahi chod sakti na!
Maan smiled and then moved towards her...Her heart started beating hard...Maan quickly put away her tray and she saw that he was sobbing...
Maan was smiling before and now he was weeping... She recalled his face...She hadn't seen him properly...He had been smiling falsely... he was faking it... She cupped his face...He moved away...
All of a sudden, she saw his phone...It was his father's birthday...She remembered it as both the families celebrated it lavishly...She felt guilty...She moved towards him...he had come to meet her to lessen his grief and she couldn't understand it...
She kissed away his tears... He tucked his face in her chest and wept... She tried to console him...
Geet- Maan! would he be happy...seeing you weeping few days before your marriage!
Maan- I can't stand it...
Geet swept her hand through his hair...
half an hour later...
Maan felt better now! She decided to be that Geet again- arey waah Maan! badi changi acting karte ho? mujhe to laga tha ki you were normal...and then you
She thought she was reviving his memories... Mujhe chup ho jaana chahiye! Maan smiled at her innocence! He kissed her...she kissed him back and then said- Chalo...ab naashta kar lo! Maan replied- Mujhe mann nahi hai!... Geet stuffed a big piece in his mouth- Shut Up! samjhe aap!(imitates him) mujhe mann nahi hai!
Maan smiled and swallowed the gulp...She fed him the entire thing after which he smiled finally...
Geet proclaimed- Chalo...shukar babaji ka ki chhote sahab muskuraye to!
Maan hugged her with one hand...
Geet- Main thodi der study kar loon!
Maan- waise mujhe lag raha tha ki tumne bahana banaya tha?
Geet- Oh Hello! main kabhi poora jhoot nahi bolti!
1.5 hours later...
Geet finished with some of her revision and turned back and saw that Maan had dozed off... She had guessed it right...He couldn't have slept the night...She sighed and pulled the blanket over him and then switched on the A.C She continued with her revision while Maan slept for another 2 hours and he finally got up and saw that Geet had gone for lunch leaving a tray full of food with a note...
Eat it...and I want it finished before I come
He smiled and ate the food thinking of her...He murmured- Meri Geet! She came after some time and saw Maan sitting on the bed...smiling at him...She jumped on his lap..and bit his ears... She gasped and so did her!
