Geet sat in her study and remembered how Annie and Arjun had fallen to her feet and thanked her after she had told Arjun to take his wife back home and threatened to pull his ears if he didn't take good care of his wife.
They had been so sorry!
She just had to forgive them!!
She couldn't just leave them burning in remorse!
And then dadi had fainted!
Geet was so afraid that she might have a heart attack, hence she had assured her of having forgiven her too.
She couldn't torment the old lady anymore!
And it wasn't completely her fault either!
She had been manipulated and poisoned by NT and her own brother!
But she could still not forgive Maan!
She had trusted him more than anything in this world!
Worshipped him as god!!
He should've believed in her!
No matter what anybody said...
Annie and Arjun had been visiting her frequently since then.
And they had grown really close.
That was when the door creaked open and Geet snapped out of her notalgia.
She looked up to see Maan standing in the doorway.
"I know no one is allowed to disturb you here, but it's already 12 in the night!
You should get some sleep!
It's not good for your health to stay up so late."
"I have work to do!"
You as it is have to go to the office tomorrow, plz sleep, for our child's sake atleast!"
"I have to check these designs before tomorrow's presentation to the client, I'm sorry but I can't sleep for another 3 hours!
"I'll do it"
Geet looked up at him in confusion.
"I'll check the designs.
I too am an architect, I'm sure I can rectify any mistakes that might be there."
"Why would I let you do that?
You own my rival company, plus you too are competing for this project!"
"I'm helping you as your husband, not the owner of KC.
Plus our designs are already ready, and there's no way we are changing them now.
So plz, go and sleep, I'll finish whatever work you have left.
And I'll do it with utmost sincerety", he said crossing his heart.
Geet gazed at him for a couple of minutes and then got up to leave.
"Don't even dare go through any of the drawers, my computer or other files!
All the designs are on the table, that's all you're to be concerned with."
and saying that she left.
Maan sighed in relief and got to work.
This was going to be a long night...
Geet finished the presentation and as the lights came back on, looked at the client for his answer.
The client, Mr. Karan Singhania, was a handsome young man in his late twenties, and owner of a chain of hotels across India.
He was now expanding into Europe, and hence had contacted the top most construction companies in the world.
The five that he had shortlisted were currently present in the conference hall of the Trident hotel where the presentations were being held.
He was impressed by this latest presentation by Ms. Geet Handa, the owner of H&G.
Not only was the ideas she presented great, he was also blown away by her flawless beauty.
Her creamy skin looked so soft, and her hazel eyes shimmered like the light from the Sun.
He was totally in love.
Maan was not happy with the way the client was praising Geet!
And he was specially not happy with the way he kept stealing glances at his wife.
And if this was not enough, there were almost a dozen girls in the room droolong over him(Maan), and passing him signals.
Maan rolled his eyes at their antics.
The problem was that due to their silent wedding no one knew that he was married, and that Geet was his wife.
They all thought that he was still a bachelor.
Hence all the silent flirting.
That was when Geet suddenly clutched her stomach and cried out in pain
Horrified at her sudden outburst Maan jumped off his feet and rushed to her.
GEET WHAT"S WRONG!!
ARE YOU ALRIGHT!!!"
"Dard ho raha hai!"
Rahul too stood rooted at the spot in horror.
Call the ambulane!
We have to rush her to the hospital!!"
And saying this Maan broke almost a score of hearts beating in the conference hall at that moment, and scooped Geet up in his arms, rushing out towards his car...
That was PART 41
Hope you enjoyed
