Chapter 19: Almost
Geet felt warmth
enveloping her and a serene calmness settled her as she felt the softness
below. It certainly didn't feel like the car seat cushion on which she fell
asleep on and whatever it was, it was really nice to make her smile while she
still had her eyes closed. She sighed contently as she snuggled closer only to
feel a prickle on her forehead. She scrunched her eyebrows and her eyes still
closed, wondering the source of the object causing discomfort. She slowly
opened her eyes, allowing it to adjust to the bright sunlight and the rushing
of wind to sight of someone's Adam's apple. She immediately jerked her eyes
open fully and tried to distance herself steadying her arms against his chest
but was surprised that she couldn't move one bit because she was securely held
by his hands.
Maan felt her stir in
the crook of his neck but continued to drive as he thought it was one of her
routine dreams in which she shifted. But soon he felt her jerk away her head
and push herself away from him only to have her spring right back into the
crook of his neck due to his tight grip on her waist. Before she could bring
down the sky with her screaming, he pulled the jeep off the road and loosened
his grip before looking at her. She quickly broke free of his grip and settled
properly in her seat. He didn't want any more misunderstandings so decided to
"You were about to
fall as you didn't buckle up, toh isiliye I had pulled you to my side," he said
trying to clear the air of tension.
"Hmm," she tried to
keep her furiously beating heart in place and looked away. "Hum kahaan hai?"
"Bas we are an hour
away from our hotel, we shall stay there tonight and resume our journey again
tomorrow," he said looking straight at the road.
"Where are Anushka and
Arjun?" she asked.
"They got a head start
so they'll reach within a few minutes, Anu called me," he said.
Geet nodded and
continued to gaze at the passing countryside while Maan concentrated on the
road. It wasn't long before he said they would reach soon but to their luck the
traffic ahead came to complete stop. Maan looked around to see a heavy traffic
jam due to a major lorry accident and enquired that to see how long before it
was cleared only to find it would take a few hours before the ambulance reached
and police arrive to clear the jam. Hearing about the delay both of them groaned
at their ill luck.
"Hey babaji!" Geet
sighed in discontent looking skyward. Maan glanced to see what she was looking
at only to find nothing.
"Geet, vahaan koi nahi
hai, tumahara bak bak band karo, vaise bhi we are stuck here, I don't want to
drive to the hotel with a headache," he said annoyed.
Geet's eyes widened at
his accusation while her mouth formed a wider O, the size of a mini basketball,
"Haww, main bak bak karti hoon, agar do shabd bolna bak bak hai toh asal mein
bak bak kya hota hai huh?" she questioned furiously pointing at him. "Aur haan
aap toh bolte hi nahi so obviously when I am only person talking you feel I am
talkative, agar aap ek ghante mein ek lavz bol gaye toh it's an achievement,"
she remarked sarcastically.
"Great, it's just what
I needed!" Maan groaned. "Ab tum kya kar rahe ho madam?" he said shaking his
"I am trying to defend
mister, you are unnecessarily accusing me of things that I am really not," she
said scrunching her eyebrows and jutting her head forward. "Mujhe koi shauq
nahi bak bak karne ki and that too with you Mr. Khurana. You know I have so m—"
"Chup. Bilkul chup,"
Maan ordered shutting her lips with his finger.
Geet for a moment was
taken by the sudden contact of his fingers on her lips, involuntarily sending a
shiver down her spine. His eyes spoke volumes as she stared intently at them,
while he drowned in her hazel pool. Time seemed to freeze around them hoping to
capture this moment and cherish it forever. Her lips quivered under his touch
as she saw his gaze soften a little while he slowly inched forward. He was an
inch away from hers when he heard her whisper.
"Toh iska matlab I win
Mr. Khurana?" she said with her eyes still closed while his hot breath falling
on her making her nerves all jittery.
"Ha good one Mrs.
Khurana. But not so fast," he said eyeing her luscious lips hungrily.
"Then why can't you
take your eyes off my lips?" she asked. He averted his gaze to see of she
caught him staring but she still had eyes closed.
"Vvoh," he stuttered
jerking back a little. "Tumhe kaise pata ki main," he paused unable to voice
"Because that's how I
always imagi—" she stopped abruptly before straightening and looking away from
him. She tried to look around to see any sign of traffic clearance but there
Maan tried to look
into her eyes to get her to finish her sentence but she was stubborn and never
looked at him. Argh! She was that close to confessing, he thought. Frustrated
at the blotched attempt he hit the steering wheel before looking away angrily.
The traffic finally
seemed to clear up after three very long hours and by the time they reached
their hotel it was way past midnight. Since they were held up in the traffic
they didn't get a chance to eat dinner and by the time they reached the city
all restaurants were closed. Cranky being held up and without food they made
their way to the hotel reception in order to check in to their rooms only to
find one room booked under the name Mr. & Mrs. Khurana.
groaned. She was not going to stay under the same roof as Maan but the hotel
had left her with no other option. All rooms were booked and she had to manage
living in the same room as him for one night. She thought the day couldn't get
any worse but now she looked forward to spending the night with Mr. Dhak Dhak.
"Wait a minute!" her brain screamed. "Did I just address him Dhak Dhak?" she
questioned herself. "I mean he is something. Voh dhole shole, that toned abs.
He probably had a six-pack. Hmm," she let out a disgruntled sigh making Maan
look quizzically at her. She smiled cheekily before putting up a serious face.
"Geet sometimes you
need to let loose, stop trying to control yourself too much" he whispered
startling her with his closeness.
"Oh puleez," she said
gaining composure. "Aap please mujhe advice dena chod deejiye," she scoffed.
"As you wish my lady.
Ab hum chalein?" he said holding her waist.
"Kahan?" she asked
suite or kahaan," he joked earning gasp from her as she stood rooted to the
"Kkya ha ha
honeymoon?" she stammered becoming red, blushing at the thought of honeymoon.
"God Geet sirf joke
tha. Agar tum sirf itni si baat se sharmane lagi ho toh socho agar sach mein
hum," he left the unsaid words hanging in midair while pulling her towards the
elevator while she found it hard to control her gushing thoughts.
Walking into the room,
they found it pretty spacious with a huge king-sized bed and a couch in the
corner of the room. Geet sighed in relief seeing the comfortable couch and
placed her bag in the closet before running to change into her pajamas and
taking the extra quilt and pillow to the couch.
Maan silently watched her change and go to the
couch without a word. He definitely knew the reason behind her quietness. She
seemed clearly uncomfortable sharing the room; not because she didn't like
sharing it with him but only due to the fact that she was aroused with his
closeness. The discomfort didn't seem to disgust her but only confuse her
feelings for him. If he could just properly channel them, in no time she would
fall in love with him. With these positive thoughts he went to change into his
track pants and by the time he came back she had deeply fallen asleep. He
deftly picked her up as though she weighed nothing and carefully placed her on
the bed and tucked her in before kissing her forehead and heading for the
couch. He took one last look at her beautiful and serene face illuminated by the
silver rays of moonlight before sleep evaded him with a huge smile on his face.
