After all the drama , nandini was sitting quietly in her room , kuhu came all ecited n ask her to recite a story from her book ...
Nandini starts reading it , kuhu puts her head slowly on her lap
"Once upon a time, in a faraway land,
A young Prince lived in a shining castle.
Although he had everything his heart desired,
The Prince was spoiled, selfish, and unkind.
But then, one winter's night,
An old beggar woman came to the castle
And offered him a single Rose
In return for shelter from the bitter cold.
Repulsed by her haggard appearance,
The Prince sneered at the gift,
And turned the old woman away.
But she warned him not to be deceived by appearances,
For Beauty is found within.
And when he dismissed her again,
The old woman's ugliness melted away
To reveal a beautiful Enchantress.
The Prince tried to apologize, but it was too late,
For she had seen that there was no love in his heart.
And as punishment,
She transformed him into a hideous beast,
And placed a powerful spell on the castle,
And all who lived there.
Ashamed of his monstrous form,
The beast concealed himself inside his castle,
With a magic mirror as his only window to the outside world.
The Rose she had offered,
Was truly an enchanted rose,
Which would bloom for many years.
If he could learn to love another,
And earn her love in return
By the time the last petal fell,
Then the spell would be broken.
If not, he would be doomed to remain a beast
For all time.
As the years passed,
He fell into despair, and lost all hope,
For who could ever learn to love...a Beast?"
Story finished, nandini looked at kuhu , she was sleeping on her lap , she makes her comfortable n remembers the lines of the story
To herself: Its seems so true sum times , he's really a beast n will never change .
She puts the book n leave the room n goes to talk with robi , as she entered , she saw him sleeping silently ,but there was a sense of tension n pain was there on his face which he never show to any1 if he's awake , she return back ...
Nandini after finishing the daily wrk n sending kuhu to school came to robi's room n entered without knocking...
Robi: dnt u hv sum manners

Robi is back home ...He was doing sum work in his office n heard sumthing , he immidiately ran towards terrace , he saw mauli sitting n the jhula n smiling towards him ...
he feels relaxed looking at her , as he moves towards her ..he heard a voice ...
" Come sit ", he looks at the voice n it was not mauli it was nandini , sitting on the jhula
he looked at her strangely ...
N: aa naaa
robi moves towards her n sits beside her
N: its nice na
N: the cold breezeee(she opens her arms to feel the wind)
loks at robi , thr was pain in his eyes..
N: kuch kehna hai , to keh sakte ho ...
N:These are all the things I have been called since the moment I came into this world.
I have never known happiness or love. Never known what it was like to be part of a family.
Never had friends... Or even, just anyone who could look at me and smile.
My life has been one, full of pain and suffering.
All I have ever wanted from anyone, was love and affection. Though no one has ever been willing to bestow such necessities upon me, not even my own mother.
I have memories from early childhood, of my mother,
And now, I find myself asking similar questions.
'What did I ever do, to deserve such a fate?'
R: nandiniii(he was touched that such a fun loving girl can think like this)
Nandini turn to him: no m f9 , she smiled
Nandini looks at him
R: I still love her, but she cant be a part of my life, she was n will always be my life ...
"Be near me when my light is low,
When the blood creeps, and the nerves prick
And tingle; and the heart is sick,
And all the wheels of Being slow.
Be near me when the sensuous frame
Is rack'd with pangs that conquer trust;
And Time, a maniac scattering dust,
And Life, a Fury slinging flame.
Be near me when my faith is dry,
And men the flies of latter spring,
That lay their eggs, and sting and sing
And weave their petty cells and die.
Be near me when I fade away,
To point the term of human strife,
And on the low dark verge of life
The twilight of eternal day."
Nandini moves towards him n puts her hand to her shoulder : Your frnd will always be there for u , whenever u want to share your pain , ur happiness ..
he looked at her
N: but not anger, i dnt like angry boyz
she smiled , he wipes his tears n walk away
turns : goodnite , so jao
he walk away ...
Nandini to herself "He doesn't apologize.
He says it, but you know he doesn't really mean it, "
she open her arms n closed her eyes : ohhh Robi...I love u
Robi return to his room , looked at mauli's pic " I love u mauli"
Night passes n new day started , it was a beautiful day for nandini , she was very excited but ut was a usuall day for robi , he got ready n leaving for office...
