Nupur held Mayank closer to herself holding him and not letting him go... Mayank had a thosand questions to ask her but for now, he needed to calm her down, and make her realize he will never let her go... He would never hurt her, and he would never do what Gunjan had done...
''Sshhh.'' He whispered into Nupur's ear...
Gunjan was confused, shocked, suprised, hurt, happy... and just tangled... Samrat was staring at her waiting for her to say something. Mayank took Nupur away 2 hours back, and Samrat waited, and waited for answers...
but Gunjan wasn't ready yet...''Wait...''
Kanan kept pacing up and down, it was 7pm and Mayank still wasn't home and neither did he pick up any of her calls. Normally if he was ever late he'd call but today it was 7 and not one call since then. Now she started to worry...
''Kaha ho tum Mayank?'' She sent out a silent prayer to her Bagwan-ji, to keep Mayank safe.
***''Mayank!'' Nupur jumped out of his arms.
''Nupur, kya hua?'' He asked confused. One second ago, they we're holding eachother in silence, and now...
''Mayank, it's nearly 8?! and your not home yet, and neither am I?! Shit I'm done for today!''
Mayank looked at Nupur and burst into fits of laughter. Nupur glared at him, ''What's so funny?''
''You, Nupur who else? Pehle tum ro rahe ti, phir you scream saying your late.'' She pinched him and giggled.
''Your so cute.'' She pinched Mayank's cheeks as he frowned.
''Wow, your mood has changed.''
''Because of you.'' She smiled. Mayank smiled and kissed her forehead. Their heartbeats increased as they looked into eachother eyes, and their eyes conveying what they felt.
''Mayank I-'' Mayank stopped her with his finger.
''Ssshh Nupur, don't worry I understand.'' He smiled, but she had so much to tell him and didn't know how to.
''Let's drop you home!'' They held hands and walked towards his car.
''Kanan! Tum abhi mujse batao, Mayank kaha hai
!'' Rudra screamed while Kanan's eyes filled with tears.
''Rudra, mein sach bol rahe ho, mujhe nahi
''Bas bhahi, bas
.'' Mayank walked into the house, shocked by what was going on.
''Mr.Rudra Sharma, how dare you
?'' Rudra glared at Mayank.
''Bhabhi knew nothing, she had no idea where I was. Besides, why do YOU need to know where I am? Since when do you care? I declared you as dead, the day you betrayed Bhabhi
''BAS! Bhahi, ab aur nahi! This man doesn't deserve you or your love. And dad, Mrs. Sharma your just standing here watching all this
?'' He spat. He felt digusted to call them his family.''Bhabhi is in pain, and you are all watching?'
''Oh wait, you must not know the truth of Bhaiya, because Bhahi forbade me from telling anyone. But I can't take it anymore
.'' Kanan begged.
''No bhabhi, this man is... chi! I can't even say it.
''Mayank, kya baat hai, batao, mujhe
.'' Mrs. Sharma spoke up for the first time.
''Mrs.Sharma, your son, Rudra Sharma, has been unfaithful to Bhahi
Everyone stood shocked. Rudra was seething with anger. Kanan looked down ashamed of her husband's filthy deed. Mr.Sharma held himself together as the realization hit him. His son had done exactly what he had done. Tears began flowing from his eyes. Mrs.Sharma felt her world breaking down. Mayank just felt digusted by his family.
.'' Everyone turned towards Mr.Sharma.
''Dad, aap kya bol rahe ho
?'' Mayank looked confused was he apologizing about not knowing about Kanan Bhabhi? Mrs.Sharma looked away knowing what he was going to say, knowing how it would affect Mayank.
''Mayank, mujhe maaf kardo
''Dad, what? I don't understand a word your saying
''Rudra did exactly what I did to your real mother. Which is the real reason she left us
.'' Mayank's world came crashing down. Suddenly everything he believed in, became lies
. His mother wasn't dead, she left him, because his father had betrayed her. But what did he do? He was only an innocent child why did she leave him?
''She thought you we're not her child.'
' Mayank looked at his dad. Shocked, digusted, betrayed...
Mayank laid in his bed.. confused, betrayed, he needed to talk to someone... Nupur. As soon as her name came to his mind, an automatic smile came to his face. He got up and climbed out his window and walked towards Nupur's house. ''Which one is her window?''
' Confused he looked between the 2 windows and tried to figure out which one was hers.
''Simple. That's her window.'
' He smiled to himself. How did he know her so well? Climbing up to her window, was the toughest job. The thorns on the plants repeately kept pinching him.
' He groaned. Nupur looked up from her book. Something wasn't right. She felt as if she was hearing someone. Someone familiar. Mayank... am I hallucinating? Why the hell would I hear Mayank? Her thoughts we're disturbed when she saw Mayank on her balcony knocking on the glass door. ''Holy shit!''
Nupur ran and locked her bedroom door. Finally she turned to her balcony door to unlock it. ''Mayank, you scared the hell out of me!''
Nupur said looking at him. But when she looked at his eyes. It was then she realized. Mayank looked lost, confused, and hurt. Was he crying? ''Mayank... what's wrong?''
Nupur gulped. She didn't like seeing him like this. For some reason it hurt her. It was killing her inside. She held his hand, and led him to sit down. After a while of silence, she heard Mayank sobbing. Nupur was shocked, and she just simply hugged him as he hugged her back.
Gunjan gulped. Samrat had been sitting next to her for hours. They sat in silence. No one was ready to speak. No one knew what to say. It was... weird. Even though they barerly new eachother, Mayank had told him to stay by her side, and he knew himself, it was the right thing to do. No matter what Gunjan done, it wasn't right to leave her alone. To be honest, he was getting bored to sitting in silence, he wasn't the quiet types, and he certainly didn't do silences.
''Gunjan, speak. Your testing my patience.''
Samrat was getting annoyed, he'd been sitting here for hours, when he could be doing something better.
''Speak god dammit!''
He shouted. ''I'm so so sorry.. I am so so sorry... I-i d-don't... I-i.
..'' Gunjan trembled shaking. Samrat realized he must of scared her. ''Gunjan, Wo... I didn't mean to shout. But can you please explain? Did you really do that to her?'' ''I did... I'm horrible. I'm a monster. I'm a horrible person, friend... daughter... s-sister.''
Samrat felt awkward but she patted her back anyways. ''Samrat, she'll never forgive me. She hates me. I-i'm so so... so stupid.''
Samrat gulped, he hated emotional converstations. The only one he had ever gotten was with Mayank when he tried to convince Mayank that his step mother wasn't a bad person... ''Gunjan, look I don't know what to say okay? I feel bad for you, and your state, but I feel even more sorry for Nupur, she had no one, and you.. you tried to take everyone away... what I'm trying to say is... let bygones be bygones, just move on... I mean, Nupur is hurt, and you will have to apologize and make up for it, even if she doesn't forgive you... you just have keep trying okay?''
O-K, he officaly felt awkward, this situation was awkward, he despised these conversations... but anything for Mayank. For his brother. His friend. Mayank always said that Samrat was his only reason why he stayed here, and he could do anything for Mayank. ''Thanks, Samrat, your a really good friend, Mayank is very lucky.'
' Gunjan spoke between her sobs as she tried to calm down. ''Look, Gunjan it's extremely late, I'll drop you home, you can talk to Nupur tomorrow in college, alright?'
' Gunjan simply nodded.
After Mayank told Nupur the story, He felt relieved.. like a huge burden has been removed... he simply just stared at Nupur, waiting for her to say something... anything... but she was staring at the ceiling in silence... ''Nupur.. say something... your killing me here!''
Mayank joked to lighten the mood.
Nupur turned and looked at him into his piercing blue eyes. She could see the pain that was biting through them tearing him apart, but she could also she something else... something different, and it.. scared her. Not in the way she should be scared but... in way that made her heart skip a beat.
