Chapter - 12
Suddenly, she heard someone behind her and before she could turn, she
heard the door knob click. She realized that whoever it was, was walking
very slowly and creepily in her direction. She knew it was very dark,
and the person couldn't see her, and concluded that he was guessing her
position because of her movements. She stopped moving, and stood very
still, covering her mouth with her hands, so as to silent her breath.
But the person kept on walking, and right in her direction. Panic arose
in her, and she was about to turn away, when she felt a force on her
shoulders, that pushed her back. She stumbled because of the sudden
attack, but the person's hands on her shoulders steadied her, as the
wall to which she had crashed, backed her body. He let out a low angry
growl, and something in her heaved a sigh of relief as she calmed down.
It was Maan holding on to her, but the gravity of the situation made her
"Maan...", she started to speak, but he silenced her by
putting a hand on her mouth. In doing this, he pushed her more into the
wall, his one hand on her mouth, and the other on the wall, his hard
body pressed hers, as she was unable to move at all. Her breathing got
rapid and heavy, colliding his hand on her mouth, when he gestured her
to be quiet. He suddenly raised his eyes to look into her wide ones, and
despite the pitch black of the room, Geet was lost in the blue of his
eyes. He looked at her with an intensity that seared through her soul.
It bit her on the insides, as she looked into his orbs, clueless of what
was going on in his mind, because she couldn't see his expressions in
the dark. Bringing his face dangerously close to hers, so that his lips
almost touched tha hand he'd placed on her mouth, he finally.
Geet Malhotra! Tum samajhti kya ho apne aap ko? You really think men
find you irresistible and hot, huh? And why is that, because you have
that certain ability that shall appeal them, right? You say all this,
and want me to believe it? Do you have any idea ki tum kitni bakwaas kar
Maan felt a kick on his knee, and his grip on her
loosened as he experienced the sudden pain. In the flash of a second,
Geet pushed and turned him such that he backed the wall now, and she
held the collar of his shirt that was open from the top till midway. She
used all her force to keep him there, and Maan had to give it to her,
for so much power.
"Mr Maan Khurana", she emphasized on every
word, as if spitting venom, the poison of words that he saw in her eyes,
"Tum khudko kya samajhte ho? Jo chahe karoge, jo mann kiya bologe? Meri
life mein itna interest lene ki zarurat nahi hai tumhe! Hum sirf do
professionals saath kaam kar rahe hain, that's it, nothing more. Main
kya kar sakti hoon, aur kya nahi, is se tumhara koi matlab nahi hai, as
long as i am being true towards your case. Aur rahi baat mere sach ya
jhooth bolne ki, tumhe kyun farak padta hai, when i clearly don't feel
the need to explain it to you ki main bakwaas nahi kar rahi thi. What
men find in me, and what not..."
Maan lost the last ounce of
control that he carried as he pushed her against the wall, pinning her
hands with his. He looked at her with his eyes that burned with rage.
Geet glared at him with equal anger, but it was her attempt to cover up
the fear that had crept in, after seeing him look so ferocious. He was
very angry about something, and she was unable to decipher the reason
"Really? Tum sach hie bol rahi ho, then you won't mind
giving me the proof, will you? You won't have a problem, agar main khud
tumhare skills ko test karna chahu, haina Geet?", her eyes widened at
this, as Maan's lips curved a little. He brought his face close to hers,
as she struggled in his hold. She turned her face to other side,
instead of directly looking at him, while he closed the distance between
them. From the corner of her eye, she saw his face approach hers, and
she tightly shut her eyes.
Maan neared her, and saw her eyes
closed. The fear in her heart reflected on her face. A flash of hurt
crossed his face, as he saw what he was doing to her. But she had forced
him to take this step, which wasn't like him at all. He was not a
person to react so harshly towards anything, but somehow, Geet did
manage to wake up the worst side of him. He paused for a while when
their faces touched, almost. He moved his eyes over her face, and saw
her forehead wet. The water droplets flowed down her face, and passing
through her neckline, went deeper as he immediately averted his gaze
back to her face. He saw another droplet followed by the few others on
her cheek, and when he looked a little above, it hit him that she was
crying. His heart stopped beating, when he imagined her pain, and
immediately, he wiped her tear with his nose, that travelled from below,
to the upper part of her face. As soon as he touched her, he heard her
gasp, and she clenched her fists in response. Only one side of her face
was available to him, as she had turned away. He started nuzzling her
face, first with his nose, then as he rubbed his cheek against hers,
very slowly and sensuously. His hands that held her wrist, moved up to
open her balled fists, and he felt her give in, as he entwined their
fingers. He felt her body relax under his, and exerting a little
pressure on her nose, he managed to turn her face towards himself. It
was as if she'd surrendered herself completely to him, as he felt her
face under his. He felt her hold on his hands tighten, as she squeezed
his fingers. He planted ever so light kisses on her face, and in the
crook of her neck. She shivered at his touch, and that excited him. The
effect that he had on her, gave him an unknown pleasure, and he couldn't
control himself anymore. Moving back his face, he stopped right in
front of her, such that their breaths intermingled. Her cool breath
caused a knot in his stomach, and he lessened the distance between their
lips, slowly and steadily, savouring each moment. He knew she could
feel his actions, his movement, that he was about to claim her lips, and
her silent agreement was all he needed. He gave her enough time, to
push him away, but she did none, and he moved on and on. Barely had
their lips touched, that Maan was shirked to reality by the loud beeping
of his cell phone. Geet's eyes snapped open, as he backed off to see
the reason his cell had struck the hammer, cursing it beneath his
breath. The cell displayed a chain of words, and fell silent. He shut
it, pocketed the little monster, and looked up, only to see Geet look at
him with her eyes glued to him, and a blank expression on her face.
he tried to speak, but her silent gaze slit through him, as he felt
choked out of words. She spoke nothing at all, and the lack of
expression on her face didn't help, as he was unable to fathom what was
she feeling right now. She had the cold walls drawn around her eyes,
such that he was unable to understand anything. Was she hurt, was she
angry, or was it guilt, his mind flooded with questions? But he knew now
was not the time he could wait for an answer. He had an important task
at hand, and for that, he needed to rush up. Grabbing Geet's hand, he
sped out of the room, as the numb Geet followed him down the stairs,
through the whole building. Maan dashed in his cabin to pick his coat,
and still clutching Geet's hand, he flew out of the office. No one
except the receptionist, and the guard noticed them, as it was lunch
time, and they also seemed to ignore it. Maan rushed towards his car,
and settling Geet in the passenger seat, he sat behind the driving wheel
and took off. He looked at Geet a few times, and wanted to say
something, but her state of meditation shut him down.
lost in a world of her own, pondering over what had happened. She'd
entered the dark room, only to be enveloped by the creepiness in the
air. But what had happened there, she was still unable to comprehend.
She was unsure, if the images that ran past her mind, were real, or
illusionary. The way Maan had touched her, had created a pit in her
heart. It thumped and crashed against her ribcage, trying to escape the
torment it was experiencing. The knotted feeling clutched her in its
claws. The way his eyes stared into her own struck a chord in her.
Despite the fear that he created in her, a part of her, a very tiny one,
accepted the dominance that he exerted on her. He was controlling her,
and she was unable to regret that fact. The feeling of someone ruling
her, was new to her, and surprisingly she seemed to like it. Perhaps had
it been someone else, she would have countered him, but this was Maan,
and she just couldn't go against him, mentally, or physically. Her body
responded to his touch on its own accord. As soon as his face touched
hers, she felt like a missile released. With eons of feelings playing
inside her, her body burning with desire, she let Maan take over her, as
she enjoyed the pleasure of pain. He set her body to the fire of
passion, as he nuzzled her. She relished his gentle caress on her face,
and when it all became too much for her to handle, when it became
difficult for her to stand on her knees that had become wobbly, she held
on to him for her dear life, as she let her body rest on his. Each kiss
that he planted on her, left a mark, on her soul. And when he couldn't
control anymore, Geet felt his intention before he'd formed it. She knew
what he was about to do, and was waiting just for her approval. But she
didn't know how she could do that, she didn't want to open her eyes,
lest he disappeared, lest she woke up only to realize that the whole of
it was mere beautiful dream. She didn't want to face the reality, if it
could be so harsh. After a few seconds of waiting, she felt Maan come
closer to her, as she felt his breath increase on her face. She realized
he'd understood her silence. He was also heaving badly, similar to her,
maybe it was a part of the situation they were in. She felt his every
move, every inch he came closer to her, the record of every nano second.
Finally, his lips touched hers, and she felt the lightning in her body
strike all chords at once. His lips had brushed hers ever so lightly,
and in that fraction of a second, she'd felt 1000 watt electricity pass
through her. But her moment was restricted to that second only, as
immediately, a shrill beeping smashed them back to reality. She opened
her eyes, only to see Maan withdraw from her, and attend to his cell.
Geet looked at him in apprehension, whether he would get back to her,
but the forlorn look in his eyes, told her all. She pulled the walls
back, letting them fall on her eyes, before he could look at her and
comprehend any of her emotions. But in doing this, she actually felt the
walls grow around her, as she underwent the pain without letting him
know any of it. She recalled everything that had happened, lost in her
own world, as she didn't realize the fact that Maan was pulling her in
some direction. All of what she could understand, was the fact that she
had almost kissed Maan, and it was something that shouldn't have
happened. She would have to put it all behind her, and move on, very
soon. She couldn't fall for the enemy, and Maan was no less than an
enemy for her. Bringing herself back to the reality, Geet gazed around
to find herself in a car, and Maan was driving. Realization struck her.
kahan ja rahe hain?", she asked suddenly, and saw Maan look at her as
an immediate reaction. He studied her face, that showed nothing but she
question she'd just voiced.
"Hum kahin kaam se ja rahe hain...",
she was about to speak, but he cut her off, "Nahi! Poochhne ka koi
fayeda nahi hai, i won't spill any beans until we reach the place", he
gave her his naughty grin, but seeing her lack of reaction, he
continued, "Bas hamare wahan pohunchne ki wait karlo, i promise you
won't regret it", he said in a calmer tone. Something in his eyes didn't
let Geet argue, as she crossed her arms, and looked out of the window.
After a few minutes of contemplation, he finally mustered the courage to
"Geet, wo jo office mein hua..."
"I don't wanna
talk about it", her shrill voice cut off even before he could form a
sentence. Maan observed that she hadn't even bothered to look at him
while she replied, while the cold edge to her tone wasn't missed by him
either. But he desperately needed answers to his question.
mere ek sawaal ka jawaab de do, i promise not to disturb you again",
when she didn't say anything, he continued, "Back there, why didn't you
protest to anything?", Geet's face flung in his direction immediately,
as her eyes searched his face to check if she'd heard right.
heard me right! I know i did start... er... whatever happened, but
you... you also were a part of it, why didn't you protest against me,
why didn't you scream or shout, least of all, you could've said
something", he asked. Geet, who'd been looking at him in the face until
now, lowered her eyes. Maan mentally patted himself for cornering her.
answer you, but before that you tell me, why did all of it happen?",
she raised her eyes again to look at him, as she continued in that soft
icy cold voice of hers, "Aaj aisa kya ho gaya Khurana, jo hamare beech
itna sab ho gaya. We had kept our distance, right? To phir ye sudden
happening kaise?", her eyes bore into him, as he guiltily turned his
face away from her. He couldn't tell her the reason, that what had led
to all of it, could he? He realized Geet had started looking out of the
window, thinking to herself. To save him from any other grief, they
reached the place where he'd intended to. Geet was so lost in her
thoughts, that she didn't realize the car pull over.
hum pohunch gaye", Maan brought her out of her thoughts, as she looked
at him confusion all over her face. Just then, her eyes fell behind him,
and through the window of the car, she saw lots of kids coming out of
the school, correction, Leo's school. She immediately glanced at her
watch, and realized that Leo's school had just ended for the day. She
immediately rushed out of the car, and went to stand next to the gate,
gazing crazily at all the kids to find Leo. She waited for long, as Maan
mirrored her act. After a while, when most of the kids had gone, those
who were left came out in small numbers. Amongst them, her eyes fell on
the slinky silhouette of Leo, who had his head downcast, and was taking
short slow strides, as if it were a pain to walk. Geet shook her head,
and shouted at her highest voice,
That seemed to
catch not only Leo's, but the attention of many others as well. Leo
looked up, and spotted her, as he ran and flung his arms around her
sitting on her knees, with that bright smile on his face. A tear escaped
her eye, as she wiped it to avoid being noticed, but Maan was quick to
spot it. Finally Leo broke out of the hug.
"Geetu, apun ko laga
tha tu nahi aayegi. Tu kya, kisi ko bhi yaad nahi hoga, ki apun ki
chhutti ho gayi hai", he told her. Geet's face hung in guilt.
Sach bataoon to main kaam mein itna ulajh gayi thi, ki mujhe yaad hie
nahi raha tha. Wo to Maan mujhe yahaan...", she turned to look at Maan,
and suddenly stopped talking, as realization struck her. Maan had
brought her here, when she hadn't even remembered anything about picking
up Leo from school. He not only brought her, but he'd even made an
effort to get to know about Leo, and that touched her. She looked at him
with her eyes full of gratitude, but there clouded a confusion as well.
Why did he make an effort for Leo? Her list was just increasing day by
day. Why did Maan care about her personal life? Why was he so bent on
avoiding her gaze today morning while driving? And the biggest one
amongst them, why did he make an advance towards her today? What was it
that she saw in his eyes, but is unable to fathom anything?
had read her gratitude, along with the confusion in her eyes. He didn't
know why was that, but he knew her confusion was related to him, and he
was in no mood to answer her. So, acting smartly, he diverted his gaze
"So Leo, i'm sure tumhe bhookh lagi hogi. Chalo chalke kahin lunch karte hai", he bent a little.
"Par ghar pe khaana bana hoga?", Leo asked, looking with unsure eyes towards Geet.
baat nahi, main Bi ko call kar deti hu. Waise bhi aaj tumhara school ka
pehla din tha, it calls for a celebration you know. Batao kahan
chalega?", Geet told him, getting up.
"Uhm, apun sochne batata
hai?", he asked, to which Geet nodded, as they started walking towards
the car. Maan settled Leo first of all in the back seat. Geet opened
hers of the passenger seat, when Maan who was also at that side,
blocked her with his hand.
"Maine tumse ek sawaal kiya tha, uska jawaab to de do", he said in a low voice. Geet felt his gaze scrutinize her.
"Maine bhi ek sawaal ka jawaab maana hai, pehle mujhe apna answer chahiye", she replied with her fiery tone.
Tum log lad kyun rahe ho, apun ke pass ek solution hai", they both were
momentarily shocked and Maan immediately moved away, when they heard
Leo who had his face hanging out of the window.
"Dekho, tum dono mein competition hoga, jo haaro, useh doosre ke sawaal ka answer dena hoga. Theek hai?", he asked.
came Maan's immediate reply, as he looked at a little hesitant Geet.
Seeing the challenge in Maan's eyes, she also murmured a soft 'ok', as
they both settled.
"Theek hai fir, hum log lunch karne payenge Mc Donald's", Leo gave his smile.
Leo, Mc D's pe fast food milega, proper lunch nahi hoga na, aur mujhe
bohut bhookh lagi hai, subah se kuch nahi khaya?", Geet gave Maan a
quick glance, and avoided his when he looked at her. He knew she was
referring to him, because he'd ordered Rishi to make sure she has
something after regular intervals. He lips curved at her concern.
baat nai Leo, hum Mc Donalds mein khayenge. Bohut din ho gayye wahaan
khaye, waise bhi i love Mc D's. I am sure meri bhookh wahin jaake shaant
hogi", he grinned at her, who turned her face in embarrassment.
apun theek se nahi mila tujhse. Hi! I am Leo, Leo Malhotra", Leo put
forward his hand, and Geet turned to him immediately.
ye tumne school mein seekha, kitne cute lagte ho bolte huye", Leo
blushed at the compliment, and Geet planted a small kiss on his face.
Maan took Leo's hand.
"Hey! I am Maan Khurana, tumhari Anvesha ka
bada bhai, aur tumhari Geetu ka...", he glanced towards Geet, who
looked at him with a hint of fear as to what would he reply, "Geetu ka
client, is waqt wo mere liye ek case pe kaam kar rahi hai", Geet sighed
"Waise Leo, main bhi bolte huye cute lagta hoon na",
Maan asked, as an afterthought. Geet's expressions horrified as she
realized what he meant.
"Haan, baat to sahi hai", saying this,
Leo moved forward and kissing Maan on his cheek, sat back again. Maan
was speechless, while Geet stiffled her laughter.
behen hai, mujhe hie kiss karegi na, tumhe to nai kar sakti. To uski
jagah apun ne tujhe kiss kar dia. Waise agar phir bhi tujhe kuch aur
chahiye, to is bar raksha bandhan pe aa jana, Geetu apun ke saath saath
tujhe bhi rakhi baandh ke, kiss kar degi", Leo mused.
Leo, i am fine", Maan vigorously shook his head. Geet saw Maan make
hilarious expressions, and turned her face away to laugh her heart out.
After that, Maan drove the car in silence, as the three left the
vicinity, unaware of a pair of eyes that observed them.
the drive, Maan didn't speak anything, which wasn't missed by Geet. She
was talking to Leo about his first day in school., who replied to every
question very enthusiastically. Then, she played her card, and asked
Leo if he'd made any friends. When Leo didn't reply, she looked back,
only to find him blush furiously. She raised her eyebrows, and he
reluctantly told her about Toasty, who was the only person, who had
become his friend. Geet giggled, but from next to her, she heard the
high laughter of Maan. He looked at Leo through the mirror, at her and
the road simultaneously.
"Areh Leo! Sharmane ki koi baat nahi
hai, tu to dude hai dude, bilkul meri tarah. Jaanta hai mere school ke
first day pe, jab main play school mein tha, to wahaan ki ladkiyaan
mujhpe itni fida ho gayi, ki chhutti time unke parents mujhe apna phone
number likha ke gayye they", he glowed.
Geet rolled her eyes, but
smiled. After this, started a series of stories about Maan's school,
where he was the innocent victim stuck between a pile of girls. Leo
imported every word of his with deliberate attention, while Geet
couldn't stop but roll her eyes.
Finally, they reached the venue,
and while Geet looked for a table to settle down, Leo asked her choice,
and ran off to Maan, who'd already gone to get their order. When they
returned after a few minutes, Maan saw Geet happily talking away with a
guy who was sitting with her. His fists curled on their own, and his
teeth gritted, when he saw how the guy was touching her hand every now
and then. As the two of them approached the table, they placed the food,
and sat down. It was a rectangular table, where Leo took the seat next
to Geet, and Maan chose to sit right opposite her. Leo told her about
what all they had brought and who liked what.
"Geetu! Ye le tera
khana, tujhe to mirchi wala khana pasand hai na? Apun bi, tere jaisa
hai, same to same. Lekin ye Maan hai na, sabse feeka wala khana laya
hai, kehta ye mirchi nahi khata. Bolo, mirchi ke bina khane mein koi
swaad hota hai...", Leo rambled off. Geet lifted her gaze to look at
Maan, who had silently begun to peel the wrappers off his food and
eating it. She kept looking at him, but for some reason, he'd decided to
focus on eating. She wondered why was he behaving so weirdly, and was
brought out of her thoughts when Leo pulled her arm.
ladka jo abhi yahaan par baitha tha, woh kaun tha?", Leo asked, and Maan
immediately looked at her apprehensively, which didn't go unnoticed by
Geet. From the corner of her eyes, she saw his reaction, as she
"Wo mera ek purana client tha, Raman. Ek murder ka case
tha, and is bechare pe bhi shak tha. Par end mein ye begunah nikla, to
bas mujhse mila to yuhi baat karne laga", she replied. She saw Maan make
weird faces as if thinking something to himself.
"Geetu! Tu na
bohut bholi hai, wo aadmi apun ko shakal se hie theek nahi lag raha tha.
Tujhe uski neeyat mein ghotala nahi dikha kya?", Leo raised his voice a
bit, and Maan involuntarily let out the words, "Aur nahi to kya?", but
embarrassedly looked down at his food again when the two pair of eyes
looked at him in surprise. Geet laughed silently at the streak of
protectiveness she saw in both the men. She understood Leo's brotherly
love, but Maan, he left her confused.
"Areh Leo, tu bhi na, kuch
bhi sochta hai. Wo ladka Raman, us se mujhe koi khatra nahi hai, kyunki
wo na... uhmm actually wo gay hai", while Leo looked at her confused,
Maan spluttered his food and started coughing badly. Geet immediately
got up, and handing him a glass of water, she rubbed his back. Maan
calmed down, but seeing the worried expression on her face, he smiled
"Geetu, wo gay hai, is se kya hota hai?", Leo was not
going to let her go. Geet felt awkward, while Maan sniggered, looking at
how she would come out of this.
"Ah, dekho Leo! Wo jo ladka hai
na, ya koi bhi aur ladka, wo gay hai, isliye ladkiyon...haan ladkiyon ko
unse koi khatra nai hota... kyunki wo gay hai... aur wo gay isliye hai,
kyunki... kyunki ladkiyon ko us se koi khatra nahi hai. Haan, yehi baat
hai, yeh dono reason ek doosre se jude huye hain, samjhe?", she heaved a
sigh of relief, and glared at Maan who was still smirking at her. Leo
was in his own world of making calculations.
"Yaani ki, gay
ladkon se ladkiyon ko koi khatra nahi hota, aur kyunki unse koi khatra
nahi hai, isliye wo gay hain. Matlab wo log achhe hote hain. Agar dekha
jaye, to Maan achha bhi hai, aur us se tujhe koi khatra bhi nai hai", he
was speaking softly, but screamed out suddenly, "HAAN! Iska matlab ye
hua ki Maan bhi gay hai, haina Geetu!", Leo looked at Geet with his eyes
It was Geet's chance to splutter her food, while Maan
looked horrified at the two of them. Geet burst out laughing, and too
young to understand anything, Leo copied her. When Geet's eyes started
watering, she somehow calmed down, and say Maan glaring at her. He
pointed with eyes to Leo, and she nodded, still recovering from her
"Wo Leo... baat darasal ye hai... ki Maan na...
Maan... actually ye Maan hai na...", she couldn't control her laugh, and
Maan gave her one of his dirtiest glare.
"Leo! Tumhari ye Geetu
hai na, iseh mujhse bohut khatra hai, bohut zada. Agar yakeen nahi aata,
to poochho is se, aaj jo kuch hua, kya uske baad ye mere saath safe
hai?", Maan looked at Geet intently, who had stopped laughing, and was
burning under his strong gaze. Colour had started creeping on her neck
and ears, as she recalled the event he was mentioning, thankfully he
broke his gaze and turned to Leo.
"To conclusion ye hai ki main
gay nahi hoon, samjha? Aur hamara khana khatam ho gaya, ab bata to de ki
woh competition kya hai?", Maan asked Leo, who immediately jumped at
"Areh haan! Main to bhool hie gaya tha. Dekho, ab hum khana
kha chuke hain na, ab competition yeh hai ki tum dono ke saamne aur
khana aayega. Jo sabse pehle useh khatam karega, wo hoga winner", he
told. Geet who had managed to compose herself by now, spoke up.
"Lekin Leo, khane ka competition tha to pehle batana tha na. Humne itna kuch kha liya, ki ab pet mein jagah hie nai hai"
pyaari Geetu! Sara din apne dimaag ko itna istamaal karti hai tu, ki ab
bechara kuch zada hie garam ho gaya lagta hai", Maan giggled, as Geet
glared at him, "Tum dono ka pet bhara hai, tabhi to is competition ka
fayeda hoga na. Agar pehle competition kara dia hota, to tum dono
bhukkado ki tarah sab kuch saaf kar gaye hote, samjhi?", Geet nodded, as
they waited for more food. Maan went and brought more food, but
unfortunately for Geet, she had a feeling she would puke just at the
sight of more food. She cursed Leo, for choosing a competition where
Maan could easily win, as guys always had a big appetite. No matter how
much they eat, they're always hungry. And looking at Maan and his
muscular body, she feared he could finish this snack in a few seconds,
and then would come the moment she was dreading. How could she tell him
why she'd readily given into that kiss?
The competition began,
where both of them were supposed to finish off two burgers and three
packets of French fries. To her surprise, Geet easily managed to keep up
with Maan. She thought maybe he was deliberately eating slow, but his
constant focus on his food told otherwise. She went back to eating her
food, but she saw that in one of the packets of the French fries, the
quantity had reduced to half. She was shocked as she hadn't touched
French fries as yet, but thinking that the packet had less quantity than
others, thanking her stars, she bit into her burger. But after a while,
the other two packets of French fries were also half empty. She paused
for a second, and saw Leo pick up a handful of fries in his hand and
gulp them. When he saw Geet looking at him, he winked at her, giving a
cheesy grin. She looked up to see Maan, something in his eyes told her
that he knew about Leo's plan. Her doubts confirmed when he looked at
Leo, and gave a small smile. She just shook her head, and went back to
her food. Finally, she managed to finish it all, along with Leo
obviously, and Maan also stopped eating right away. Geet was declared
the winner, and Maan went to pay away the cheque, closely followed by
"Khurana! Bill main bhi share karungi", to which, Maan refused blatantly, and again and again. Finally she had to give in.
"Theek hai, but i can't keep a favour", she asked.
worry Malhotra, main apne paise wasool karna jaanta hoon. You owe me
one, right? So, place aur time main decide karuga, and you shall pay for
the dinner, ok?", he grinned at her.
"Dinner?", she asked, but
looking at his determined face, she gave in to avoid any arguments.
After that, Geet decided to drop Leo home, and go back to ME, to
continue with her work. They did so, and as soon as Maan reached his
office, he got busy with the files. Rishi and Geet sat in front of him
working, as their laughter on Rishi's silly jokes rang in his ears
constantly. Finally Geet let Rishi go, when she realized it was a little
past his work time. Ignoring his requests to help her, she shooed him
off, and sat working silently. Maan saw her work in peace, and finally
manages to put some attention into the files, like he'd been pretending
since so long. He finished work sooner than he'd expected, realizing
that proper attention was all that the files had required. He stretched
his arms, and felt a sudden pull in his shoulders, rubbing them to ease
