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 Mayank holding on to her, but the gravity of the situation made
"Mayank...", 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, Nupur 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.
Nupur 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
Mayank felt a kick on his knee, and his grip on
her loosened as he experienced the sudden pain. In the flash of a
second, Nupur 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 Mayank had to give
it to her, for so much power.
"Mr Mayank Sharma", 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..."
Mayank 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. Nupur 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 for it.
"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
Nupur?", her eyes widened at this, as Mayank'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.
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, Nupur 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 Mayank was shirked to reality by the loud
beeping of his cell phone. Nupur'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 Nupur 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 Nupur's hand, he
sped out of the room, as the numb Nupur followed him down the stairs,
through the whole building. Mayank dashed in his cabin to pick his coat,
and still clutching Nupur'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. Mayank rushed towards his car,
and settling Nupur in the passenger seat, he sat behind the driving
wheel and took off. He looked at Nupur 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 Mayank 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
Mayank, 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 Mayank 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, Nupur 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 Mayank 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 Mayank withdraw
from her, and attend to his cell. Nupur 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 Mayank was pulling her in some direction. All of
what she could understand, was the fact that she had almost kissed
Mayank, 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 Mayank was no less than an enemy for her. Bringing
herself back to the reality, Nupur gazed around to find herself in a
car, and Mayank was driving. Realization struck her.
ja rahe hain?", she asked suddenly, and saw Mayank 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 Nupur argue, as she crossed her arms, and looked out of the window.
After a few minutes of contemplation, he finally mustered the courage
"Nupur, wo jo office mein hua..."
"I don't wanna
talk about it", her shrill voice cut off even before he could form a
sentence. Mayank 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?", Nupur'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. Nupur, who'd been looking at him in the face until
now, lowered her eyes. Mayank mentally patted himself for cornering
"I'll 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
Sharma, 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 Nupur 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. Nupur
was so lost in her thoughts, that she didn't realize the car pull over.
hum pohunch gaye", Mayank 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 Mayank 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. Nupur shook her head, and shouted at her highest voice,
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 Mayank
was quick to spot it. Finally Leo broke out of the hug.
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. Nupur's face hung in guilt.
Sach bataoon to main kaam mein itna ulajh gayi thi, ki mujhe yaad hie
nahi raha tha. Wo to Mayank mujhe yahaan...", she turned to look at
Mayank, and suddenly stopped talking, as realization struck her. Mayank
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 Mayank 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 Nupur.
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?", Nupur told him, getting up.
"Uhm, apun sochne batata
hai?", he asked, to which Nupur nodded, as they started walking towards
the car. Mayank settled Leo first of all in the back seat. Nupur opened
hers of the passenger seat, when Mayank 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. Nupur 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 Mayank 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 Mayank's immediate reply, as he looked at a little hesitant Nupur.
Seeing the challenge in Mayank'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?", Nupur gave Mayank 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 Nupur turned to him immediately.
Leo, ye tumne school mein seekha, kitne cute lagte ho bolte huye", Leo
blushed at the compliment, and Nupur planted a small kiss on his face.
Mayank took Leo's hand.
"Hey! I am Mayank Sharma, tumhari Gunjan
ka bada bhai, aur tumhari Noor ka...", he glanced towards Nupur, who
looked at him with a hint of fear as to what would he reply, "Noor ka
client, is waqt wo mere liye ek case pe kaam kar rahi hai", Nupur sighed
"Waise Leo, main bhi bolte huye cute lagta hoon na",
Mayank asked, as an afterthought. Nupur's expressions horrified as she
realized what he meant.
"Haan, baat to sahi hai", saying this,
Leo moved forward and kissing Mayank on his cheek, sat back again.
Mayank was speechless, while Nupur stiffled her laughter.
meri 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, Noor apun ke saath
saath tujhe bhi rakhi baandh ke, kiss kar degi", Leo mused.
nai Leo, i am fine", Mayank vigorously shook his head. Nupur saw Mayank
make hilarious expressions, and turned her face away to laugh her heart
out. After that, Mayank drove the car in silence, as the three left the
vicinity, unaware of a pair of eyes that observed them.
the drive, Mayank didn't speak anything, which wasn't missed by Nupur.
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. Nupur giggled, but from next to her, she heard the
high laughter of Mayank. 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.
Nupur rolled her eyes,
but smiled. After this, started a series of stories about Mayank's
school, where he was the innocent victim stuck between a pile of girls.
Leo imported every word of his with deliberate attention, while Nupur
couldn't stop but roll her eyes.
Finally, they reached the venue,
and while Nupur looked for a table to settle down, Leo asked her
choice, and ran off to Mayank, who'd already gone to get their order.
When they returned after a few minutes, Mayank saw Nupur 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 Nupur, and Mayank chose to sit right opposite her.
Leo told her about what all they had brought and who liked what.
Ye le tera khana, tujhe to mirchi wala khana pasand hai na? Apun bi,
tere jaisa hai, same to same. Lekin ye Mayank 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. Nupur lifted her gaze to
look at Mayank, 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.
woh ladka jo abhi yahaan par baitha tha, woh kaun tha?", Leo asked, and
Mayank immediately looked at her apprehensively, which didn't go
unnoticed by Nupur. From the corner of her eyes, she saw his reaction,
as she answered.
"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
Mayank make weird faces as if thinking something to himself.
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 Mayank 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. Nupur laughed silently at the
streak of protectiveness she saw in both the men. She understood Leo's
brotherly love, but Mayank, 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, Mayank spluttered his food and started coughing badly. Nupur
immediately got up, and handing him a glass of water, she rubbed his
back. Mayank calmed down, but seeing the worried expression on her face,
he smiled inwardly.
"Noor, wo gay hai, is se kya hota hai?", Leo
was not going to let her go. Nupur felt awkward, while Mayank
sniggered, looking at how she would come out of this.
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 Mayank
who was still smirking at her. Leo was in his own world of making
"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 Mayank 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 Mayank bhi gay hai,
haina Noor!", Leo looked at Nupur with his eyes twinkling.
Nupur's chance to splutter her food, while Mayank looked horrified at
the two of them. Nupur burst out laughing, and too young to understand
anything, Leo copied her. When Nupur's eyes started watering, she
somehow calmed down, and say Mayank glaring at her. He pointed with eyes
to Leo, and she nodded, still recovering from her laughter fit.
Leo... baat darasal ye hai... ki Mayank na... Mayank... actually ye
Mayank hai na...", she couldn't control her laugh, and Mayank gave her
one of his dirtiest glare.
"Leo! Tumhari ye Noor 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?", Mayank
looked at Nupur 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?", Mayank asked Leo, who immediately jumped at this.
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. Nupur 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 Noor! Sara din apne dimaag ko itna istamaal karti hai tu, ki ab
bechara kuch zada hie garam ho gaya lagta hai", Mayank giggled, as Nupur
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?", Nupur nodded,
as they waited for more food. Mayank went and brought more food, but
unfortunately for Nupur, she had a feeling she would puke just at the
sight of more food. She cursed Leo, for choosing a competition where
Mayank could easily win, as guys always had a big appetite. No matter
how much they eat, they're always hungry. And looking at Mayank 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, Nupur easily managed to keep
up with Mayank. 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 Nupur looking at him, he winked at her, giving a
cheesy grin. She looked up to see Mayank, 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 Mayank also stopped eating right away. Nupur was declared
the winner, and Mayank went to pay away the cheque, closely followed by
"Sharma! Bill main bhi share karungi", to which, Mayank 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, Nupur decided to drop Leo home, and go back to ME, to
continue with her work. They did so, and as soon as Mayank reached his
office, he got busy with the files. Rishi and Nupur sat in front of him
working, as their laughter on Rishi's silly jokes rang in his ears
constantly. Finally Nupur 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. Mayank 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
