Manyata reached the hall where Brijraj was sitting. Manyata pursed her lips in distress and called out to her father, "Papa!". Brijraj looked at Manyata and gauged that something was wrong and asked, "Kya hua, Beta?". Uday just reached there with a smirk on his face. Manyata gathered herself and said, "Mujhe aapse kucch kehna thha". Brijraj nodded his head, tension forming on his face. Uday intervened, "Aarey, itni si baat ko aise kahogi toh Uncle Brij pata nahi kya kya soch lenge". Manyata turned at Uday in surprise, did Uday really know what she was going to say, if yes then why was he so happy about it.Brijraj looked at them confused. Uday narrowed his eyes and threw a mischievious smirk at Manyata as he walked past her towards Brijraj. "Woh kya hai na, Uncle Brij, humne Manyata se poocha thha humare saath humare Best Polo Player k award jeetne k waqt rahein. Lekin, Manyata kehne lagi woh aapke permission k bina kahin nahi jaayengi", said Uday. Manyata was at a loss of words, she was furious at Udayveer's constant plotting. Manyata was glaring daggers at Udayveer. Udayveer looked back for an instant just to enjoy Manyata's expressions and throw his smirk at her which irritated Manyata further. "Hum bas yahi keh rahe thhe ki Uncle Brij thodi naa mana karenge, itni hitchkicchane ki koi zaroorat nahi hai. Hai na Uncle Brij?", asked Uday. "Of course, Beta! Ek pal k liye toh hum darr hi gayye yeh sochke ki Manyata itni pareshaan kyun hain", said Brijraj relieved. Brijraj gestured Manyata to come forward. Manyata pulled on an exhausted smile and walked to stand beside Uday. Brijraj said, "Dekhiye Manyata, aap ki aur Uday ki shaadi hone waali hai, accha hoga ki aap ek dusre ko jaane, ek doosre k life style mein ghulein milein, aur isiliye ek doosre k saath zyaada time spend karein. Humein Uday pe poora bharosa hai, woh humesha aapka dhyaan rakhenge" and blessed both Manyata and Udayveer. Udayveer smiled at Brijraj and looked sideways at Manyata who glared at him in anger. Brijraj excused himself as he got an important phone call to attend.
Manyata turned at Uday with irritation all over her face. "Jhooth kehte kehte tumhari zubaan nahi thakti? Kabhi toh yeh chaalbaazi, khel, chhal, chhodo!", said Manyata shaking her head in disppointment. Udayveer was listening to her with a mischievious smirk on his face and his hand resting on his chin. "You know something, Manyata, tum jab yeh tameezdaar tareekey se ladhti ho, humein bada mazaa aata hai", said Uday going round Manyata. Manyata said, "Sacch! Tum mein itni si bhi sharam nahi hai na!". "Nahi", said Uday with a flirty smile. Manyata flared her nostrils in anger. "Kya hua? Gussa aa raha hai?", asked Uday trying to rile up Manyata. Manyata glared daggers at him. Uday smirked and moved closer to Manyata and urged, "Come on! Ek gaali toh suna do, Miss Tameezdaar". Manyata twisted her face in disgust and walked away from there. Uday said, "Kum se kum Haan-Nahi-Toh toh bol do!". Jai came there and remarked, "Pathetic!". Uday turned towards Jai and asked feigning innocence, "Humse kucch kaha?". Jai rolled her eyes and said, "Actually pathetic nahi, its sad! Yuvraj Udayveer Singh ek ladki k peeche bhaagte hue jo usse ghaas tak nahi daalti". "Apne hone waali biwi k saath kucch time spend karne ki koshish kr rahe hain, tumhe koi problem hai", asked Uday with a smirk knowing that Jai was jealous. Jai said, "Please! Hum jaante hain tumhare drame ko. Jeeji ek khiloney se zyaada kucch nahi hai tumhare liye, jisse tum bohot jaldi bore ho jaoge ". Uday walked around Jai and said, "Kucch log toh humari favourite khilona naa ban paane par dil se afsoos krte hain". Jai said, "Tum bohot hi jaldi realize karoge ki ek khiloney aur jeevan saathi chun ne mein bohot farq hota hai. Jodi humesha baraabar waalon ki hoti hai". Uday said with a smirk, "Woh kya hai naa, Jai! Yuvraj Udayveer Singh ki baraabari koi nahi kr sakta isiliye humein hi compromise krna padega". Jai said, "Come on, Uday! Hum dono ek jaise hi hain, we deserve each other and you just know that, humaari chemistry k saamne sab jal jaate hain, aise faltu k time pass mein apna waqt barbaad mat karo". Uday smirked and added, "Woah! Aur tum humein pathetic keh rahi ho? Seriously Jai, tumhe ab bhi lagta hai hum tumhe chunegein!". Jai said, "Tumhare dark side ko humaare siva koi nahi jaanta aur koi bardassht nahi kr paayega", and left. Uday smirked in response.
The day of the Polo Awards Ceremony:
Manyata was in her room talking to herself. "Kitni badi deengen haank di uske saamne, ki uski man maani nahi chalegi! Aur neeche usne party mein jaane k liye Papa ko mana liya aur tum mun mein kundli maar k khadi rahi!", Manyata chided herself. Manyata remembered Uday's smirk and told to herself, "Nahi, har baar woh nahi jeet sakta. Mujhe kucch sochna padega". "Think, Think", Manyata urged herself while pacing back and forth her room. Manyata almost collided with the table. Manyata's face brightened as she got an idea.
It was evening and Uday had arrived at palace to take Manyata with him to the Awards party. Uday was standing in the hall when Jai climbed down the stairs wearing a black dress. The dress was very short and sexy, Jai had taken care that she looked absolutely irresistible. Jai walked upto Uday who smirked at her. Jai walked upto him and bent down to adjust her sandals intentionally. Uday smirked knowing what Jai was trying to do. Jai stood up straight and said, "I am so hot", fanning herself. "Kyun, AC kharab hogayi hai kya?", asked Uday mischieviously. "Tumhari pasand k saath saath tumhari sense of humor bhi average ho gayi hai, Uday", retorted Jai. Manyata just came near the stairs wearing a light pink coloured gown looking elegant. Uday's smirk disappeared, he was awestruck by Manyata's look. "Manyata always looks beautiful but today was something special, what was that?", Uday questioned himself. Manyata started slowly walked down the stairs. Uday remarked to himself, "Yes, she was smiling today! A smile suits her the best but wait, she wasn't supposed to!". Manyata had a serene smile on her face while walking down, she missed one stair and fell down badly imbalanced. "Aaa...", Manyata screamed in pain holding her left ankle on which she fell. Uday immediately rushed to Manyata and sat down, worried. Manyata was flinching in pain. "Dekh k chala karo, Manyata", chided Uday caressing Manyata's ankle. Manyata looked at Uday shocked and so did Jai. Jai had known Uday for the longest time and he wouldn't care less about anyone but this was definitely different. Manyata immediately withdrew her ankle as Uday caressed it. Uday looked at her puzzled and Manyata did not look at him intentionally. Vijay rushed downstairs said, "Manyata, humaara accident prone, Bhai! Dhyaan rakhaa karo". Uday held Manyata's hand to help her get up and uttered, "Aao..". Manyata immediately withdrew her hands from Uday's and glared at him. Uday glared back at her. Manyata tried to get up herself but she flinched in pain. Uday caught Manyata's hand forcibly and pulled her up with anger in his eyes. Manyata could sense his anger and avoided looking at him. "Tum theek toh ho na?", asked Vijay. Manyata replied, "Nahi, Vijay Bhai! Mujhe toh khade hone mein bhi muskil ho rahi hai! Main nahi jaa paaungi, aap log mere bina hi chale jaaiye". Uday heard this and glared daggers at Manyata. "Woh toh theek hai, lekin pehle apni fiqr toh karo!", said Vijay. Uday said in a sarcastic tone with anger in his eyes, "Vijay Banna, hum Manyata ko unke kamre taak chhodh dete hain". "Nahi!", almost screamed Manyata. Jai and Vijay looked at Manyata confused. Uday asked in bitter tone, "Kyun?". Manyata replied, "Kyunki main room tak khudh chal k jaa sakti hoon". "Par tum toh keh rahi thhi ki tumse khada bhi nahi hua jaa raha", retorted Uday with cutting sarcasm in his tone. Manyata defended herself, "Matlab, main...". Vijay cut in, "Manyata Bhai, agar humne tumhe utthane ki koshish ki toh kahin hum dono hi naa utth jaayein. Aarey jab Uday jaisa six-pack waala banda humaare paas hai toh hum dono apni haddiyaan tootne ka risk kyun le? Ab chup chap Uday ki baat maano aur yeh formality wagera chhodo". Manyata looked away. "Cmon Vijay Bhai agar Jeeji keh rahi hain ki woh manage kr lengi toh unpe zor kyun daal rahe hain", said Jai bitterly. Uday went close to Manyata and lifted her in his arms shocking Manyata. Jai was burning with jealousy. Udayveer climbed up the stairs lifting Manyata in her arms. Manyata glarde daggers at him and said, "Main chal sakti hoon". "Humein pata hai, Princess! Bas pata nahi thha ki jeetne k liye tum itna accha naatak kr sakti ho", replied Uday with cutting scarcasm in his tone. "Oh! Pehli baar haar k bura laga kya?", asked Manyata in a teasing tone. They had reached near Manyata's room. Uday smirked and replied, "Seriously aisi haar k liye toh hum zindagi bhar taiyyar hai, jis haar mein tum humaare baahon mein hogi". Manyata gets all riled up and demands, "Chhodo mujhe, main khud chal sakti hoon". Uday smirked and replied, "Jaisa tum kaho", and dropped her on her bed. Manyata hit the bed hard and glared at Uday in response. Uday said, "Kya? Ab please humein dosh mat dena, humne toh bas wahi kiya jo tumne kaha". "Haarne par log aisi harkatein karte hain! Waise bhi tum ginti ulti krte ho. Sahi ginti main tumhe batati hoon- Uday 0, Manyata 1", said Manyata smirking at Uday. Uday's face turned intense, as he rested his hands on the bed and leaned towards Manyata. Manyata was scared and she moved back to avoid him. Uday came very close to Manyata and Manyata found her self trapped between the end of the bed and Uday's arms. Uday said huskily, "Harqatein toh kaafi saari kr sakte hain, Manyata". Manyata looked into Uday's eyes. Uday smirked and said, "Par hum yehi soch rahe hain ki agar haar aisi hai toh jeet kaisi hogi". Manyata looked at Uday confused. Uday smirked and left the room queitly.
Uday reached the party where everyone congratulated him. One of his rivals Prince Amar asked Uday, "Kya baat hai Udayveer? Aap toh Bachelor of the year hain aur aapke special din pe aap akele?". Uday smirked and said, "Woh kya hai naa hum kisika dil todna nahi chahte thhe. Isiliye humne socha akele hi aa jaate hain". Amar hated Uday for his popularity and superior skills, he never missed a chance to pass a rude remark towards him and tried to bring him down in any possible way, but obviously Uday was just too good for that. Amar smirked and said, "Accha baahana hai, Udayveer! Waise, meet my girl, IIeana". Uday smiled mischieviously knowing what Amar was trying to do. A girl wearing heels and dressed in a short dress walked towards Amar. Amar introduced the girl as Ileana and said, "Yehi hai THE Prince Udayveer Singh". "Uday", said Udayveer extending his hand with his charming smile on. "Ileana", said Illeana as she shook hands with Uday. "Pleased to meet you, Beautiful lady", said Uday with his charming voice. Ileana was still holding Uday's hand and looked at him mesmerized by his charms. Ileana said in a flirty tone, "I thought you were a thorough gentleman, Uday! I guess kissing hands has become too old-fashioned, now". Amar was distraught seeing Ileana flirting shamelessly with Uday in front of him. Uday smirked and kissed Ileana's hand. "Tum jaisa hottie, akela? Not fair!", said Ileana. "I don't want to be unfair to all the girls", said Uday with a flirtatcious smirk.Ileana came close to Uday and whispered in his ears, "I can accompany you if you want". Uday smirked back at Amar.Amar felt insulted and tols in anger, "Lets go Ileana". Ileana looked at Amar irritated and said, "Congrats, Prince" to Uday and planted a small congratulatory peck on Uday's cheek. Uday gave a winning smirk towards Amar who walked out from there fuming.
Manyata was in her chilling in her bed room. Manyata was sitting on her bed watching the song, "Second Hand Jawaani", from the movie Cocktail. Manyata grooved while sitting. Unnati entered the room and was surprised to see Manyata grooving. Unnati called out, "Manyata?". "Haan", turned Manyata towards the voice grooving to the song. Unnati looked at Manyata confused. "Unnati?", Manyata was shocked, she immediately switched off the television and asked, "Tum yahaan kya kar rahi ho?". Unnati replied, "Woh Dada ne humse kaha ki tumhare pair pe chot lag gayi aur tum bohot dard mein ho isiliye nahi aa paayi. Humein tumhaari fiqr thhi isiliye humne socha ki hum tumse mil aaye aur phir Dada ko join kr lenge". Manyata felt as if she had been punched in her guts. Here, is a girl who left her Brother's award ceremony just to check on her and it was all a lie. Manyata had never felt so miserable in her life, she hated herself for this situation. Manyata's face was completely guilt-ridden and quiet. Unnati coudn't gauge what changed Manyata's expressions immediately and asked, "Kya hua? Bohot dard ho raha hai kya?" and sat on the edge of Manyata's bed. "Tumhe aane ki kya zaroorat thhi, Unnati? Yeh toh chhoti si chot hai, par aaj toh tumhare Bhai ka itna bada din hai", said Manyata not looking at Unnati. Unnati shook her head and made Manyata look at her and said, "Humaare liye humaare Dada bohot important hain lekin humari Bhabhi aur humari dost Manyata, utni hi important hai". Manyata's eyes were filled up in tears. "Kya hua Manyata? Tum ro kyun rahi ho?", asked Unnati concerned. Manyata looked away and closed her eyes and said, "Main inn sab ke layak nahi hoon, Unnati". "Kya?", asked Unnati confused. Manyata took a deep breath and said, "Mera pair theek hai, Unnati", still not looking at Unnati. "Hum kucch samjhe nahi, Manyata", said Unnati totally puzzled. Manyata mustered up courage and spoke, "Maine jhooth mut ka nataak kiya thha taaki mujhe Uday k saath jaana naa pade aur...". "taaki Dada, Jai ko apne saath le jaayein", completed Unnati shocked. Manyata looked at Unnati and said apologetically,"I am sorry, Unnati. Mujhe pata nahi thha ki meri jhooth ki wajah se...". Unnati stuck out her hand gesturing Manyata to stop. Tears threatened to come out of Manyata's eyes. Unnati held her head to control her emotions and said, "You know what Manyata, I feel like a complete Idiot!". "I am sorry", said Manyata, in a broken voice. "Sorry? Manyata, humein tumhaari itni chinta hui ki hum apne Dada ki awards ceremony chhodh ke bhaage bhaage chale aaye, aur tumne yeh sab sirf isiliye kiya kyunki tum Jai ko khush dekhna chahti thhi? Itna bada naatak kr sakti ho tum, Manyata", said Unnati feeling betrayed. Manyata looked down guilty. "You know what, Manyata? I am sorry. Galati humaari hi hai, ki humne tumhaari chintaa ki", said Unnati and left the room in anger. Manyata jumped out of her bed, and she felt a pang of pain, she had slightly injured her ankle while she feigned falling down. "Unnati", said Manyata and followed Unnati.
Uday was having a drink when Jai caressed Uday's shoulder. Uday turned towards Jai and said, "Why am I not surprised!". Jai smirked and said, "Duniya ko bewakuf bana sakte par humein nahi. Bechaare log unhe toh pata bhi nahi ki Yuvraj Udayveer Singh ki date ne usse ditch kr diya hai". Uday corrected Jai, "Ditch nahi Retired hurt". Jai rolled her eyes and said, "Oh please, Uday! Humein pata hai, Jeeji just hates you. Unhone jaan bujh k wahaan naatak kiya thha. Isiliye humne kaha thha Jeeji k picche bhaagne se koi faayeda nahi hoga. Reth(sand) ko jitni zor se thaam ne koshish karoge, woh utni hi jaldi mutthi se phisalti jaayegi". "Impossible ko possible krne mein hi mazaa hai Jai", said Uday taking a sip from his drink. Jai said, "Tumhaare iss khel mein dekho, tum kitne akele pad gayye ho Uday! Jeeji chhodo aaj k din toh tumhare saath tumhaari pyaari behen Unnati bhi nahi hai". Uday ignored Jai and took a sip from his drink. Jai said, "Hum tumhaara saath humesha denge Uday. Lekin tumhe humaari qadr maloom honi chahiye. Isiliye hum tumhaare saath stage pe sirf tabhi jaayenge jab tum humse request karoge". Uday ignored her and Jai walked off from there. The winner of the Best Polo Player of the year was announced! Everyone clapped and cheered for Uday. Uday put on his most charming smile as he felt that he was truly alone in his achievement. Uday glanced at Jai who gave a winning smile to Uday. Uday felt a hand over his left shoulder. Uday turned to see a smiling and proud Unnati standing left of him. "Chhoti!", said Uday not able to hide his happiness. "Proud of you, Dada! Hum yeh kaise miss kr sakte thhe", said Unnati. Uday smiled at her. Unnati said, "Zara udhar dekhiye, aapko kaun wish krna chahta hai". Uday turned to his right side to see Manyata standing there looking down trying to avoid eye contact with him. Uday was stunned."Why in the earth would she come here? She won, right? She went to the extent of feigning her falldown to win, she was happy, right? Then, why?", were questions which clouded Uday's mind. Manyata looked at Uday and said, "Congrats". Uday was taken aback, and he managed to say, "Thank You". "Chalein, Dada?", asked Unnati. Uday snapped out of his confusion and smiled at Unnati, he held Manyata's hand. Manyata looked at him shocked whereas Uday smiled at her reply. Unnati walked beside Uday and Uday and Manyata walked hand in hand. Everyone was shocked to see Manyata joining Uday. Most of his rivals were jealous of Uday getting such a beautiful girl as her date. The girls grudgingly admitted that Manyata and Uday looked like a Royal couple made in heaven. Manyata was lost in her thoughts, she actually saw Uday giving out a genuine smile rather than a winning smirk, it would have been like winning a game for him but he looked so genuinely glad that she came. Uday glanced at Manyata and noticed that she was limping a bit. Uday was shocked. "She was actually hurt and still she came? What kind of a person is Manyata? Why is she doing this out of her own will?". Manyata was a bit apprenhensions about climbing up the stairs of the stage due to her slightly hurt ankle, Uday's hand automatically moved to hold Manyata from behind and the other hand held Manyata's hand to lend her support. Manyata looked at Uday shocked. "How did he know that she needed help? Did he mark that she was limping? But then, why did he care? He should be gloating on his win but why not?", asked Manyata to herself. Uday helped Manyata climb up the stairs and the audience went , "Aww...", making Manyata embarrassed. Uday received the prize with a smile. Everyone clapped. The media requested Manyata to come closer to Uday so that they could click a picture. Manyata acted like she couldn't hear them and looked away. Uday looked at Manyata. Uday wrapped his hand around Manyata's waist and pulled her towards him. Manyata looked at him shocked and the media clicked away their pictures. Manyata removed Uday's hand from her waist and walked away hiding her limp from the stage. The media dubbed this act as Manyata being shy. Uday looked at Manyata with a smirk.
Manyata made her way through the crowd. The crowds were making remarks like, "She's so lucky yaar!", "C'mon Uday ka naya khilona hai", "Jo bhi kaho Uday ki choice ki daat deni chahiye". Manyata's anger crossed her limits, she sped up towards the pool side and tried to calm herself. Manyata chided herself, "Kya zaroorat thhi, yahaan aane ki? Bana liya apna mazaak? Ab khush ho?". "Sirf sawaal pucchogi yaa jawaab bhi dogi", Manyata heard the familiar voice. Manyata looked away knowing that Uday had come there to rub salt to her wounded pride. "Hum usually logon ko do second mein pehechaan lete hain, Manyata. Lekin tum toh humaare palle hi nahi padd rahi", said Uday. Manyata looked at Uday shocked as she expected him to be gloating on his win. Uday said, "I mean, hum samajh hi nahi paa rahe. Tumne apna pair sahi mein injured kr liya yahaan nahi aane k liye aur phir yahaan khud ba khud aa gayi aur yahaan tak ki humein badhaiyaan bhi di!". Manyata replied, "Wajah tum kabhi nahi samajh paoge, Udayveer! Phir bhi sunlo". Uday looked at Manyata interested. Manyata said, "Yahaan main sirf isiliye aayi hoon kyunki tumse jitne k liye maine anjaane mein Unnati ko hurt kiya, woh sab kucch chhodh kr mujhse milne aayi aur mein wahaan apne jeet k mazze le rahi thhi. Main itni badi guilt k saath nahi jee sakti". Uday laughed. Manyata was surprised as his behavior. Uday controlled his laugh and said, "You are too much, Manyata! I mean tum sacch mein, kisi daily soap ki heroine ko takkar de sakti ho. Tyaag aur Prayaschit ki Devi Manyata!". Uday shook his head laughing sarcastically trying to laugh off his own stupid assumptions that Manyata actually came for him, he felt like an idiot for thinking like that, and laughed sarcastically at himself for being so pathetic. Manyata asked, "Agar main Tyaag ki Devi hoon toh tumhe Tyaag ka devta ban ne ka shauk kyun chadha hai?" Uday's laughter came to a halt. He looked away from Manyata. Manyata faced Uday and asked, "Tum toh asaani se Unnati se keh sakte thhe sacch kya hai par tumne usse jhooth kyun kaha ki mere pair pe sacch mein chot lagi hai? Kyun apne khaas din pe usse tumhe chhodh kr mere paas jaane diya? Jab ki tum jaante thhe ki maine naatak kiya thha". Uday didn't reply to her. Manyata shook her head and said, "Apni behen ka dil tum jaisa matlabi aadmi nahi tod sakta toh main kaise tod sakti hoon!". Uday looked away from Manyata. Jai reached there to see Manyata and Udayveer together. Jai couldn't comprehend what had been happening, she needed answers from Manyata. Jai marched towards Manyata but was interrupted by someone else who wanted to chat with her. Manyata said to Uday, "Main tumhaare palle nahi padd rahi? Tumhe samajhna toh na mumkin hai, kabhi kabhi toh aise behave krte ho ki kisiki feelings yaa phir kisi k baare mein koi fiqr hi nahi hai tumhe par humaari pariwaar ki izzat bacchate ho, mujhe chot de kr patti bhi khudh hi bandhte ho, kehte ho ki tum Yuvrani se shaadi krna chahte ho par jab main Jai ko Yuvrani banati hoon, tum mera haath maangte ho? Kaisa khel hai yeh? Kya kar kya rahe ho tum?". Jai's mobile rang and she was holding it in the same hand as she was holding her drink, in hurry of receiving the call, she accidentally spilled the drink on herself. "OMG!", exclaimed Jai and moved back some steps trying to clean the mess, she banged with Manyata who fell into the pool. "Manyata!", exclaimed Uday in shock. Manyata gained her balance and stood inside the pool trying to cover herself with her hands as her dress had become a bit transparent after being soaked in water. Uday was about to go into the pool when Manyata screamed, "Wahin raho, yaahaan aane ki koshish bhi mat krna tum". Uday rolled his eyes in anger and said, "Apna yeh attitude kisi aur ko dikhaana". "Shut up, Uday! I am SERIOUS! Durr raho", screamed Manyata. Many people had arrived there hearing noises. Manyata was red in embarassment, how will she ever come out with so many people crowding up there. Manyata dipped more into water so that only her face was visible. Some people started laughing at Manyata. Manyata felt miserable. Uday stepped into the pool and walked towards her. Manyata tried to cover herself with her hands frantically. Uday took off his blazer and wrapped it around Manyata. Manyata was at a loss of words at Uday's act. Uday hugged Manyata sideways and pulled her up to stand. Manyata uttered, "Maine kaha thha, duur...". Uday cut in and said, "Jo jhagda krna hai, kahin aur krna yahaan sab khade hain tumhaara tamasha dekhne k liye". Manyata was tongue-tied. Manyata let herself to be pulled away. Uday helped Manyata to get out of the pool. Uday hugged Manyata sideways to cover her view from everyone else and walked her to his hotel room. Manyata walked into the room looking down. Uday stayed outside and said, "Hum Chhoti se kehte hain woh change k liye kucch bhijwaade. Uday closed the door and left. Manyata just couldn't believe what she experienced just now! She never ever felt so protected and cared for. She could feel the concern and protectiveness when Uday was hugging her. Manyata slowly touched Uday's blazer on her.
Meanwhile, Unnati had taken Jai to another room so that she could change. Unnati instructed the maid to give particular dresses to Manyata and Jai Nandini. The maid mixed it up and gave Manyata the dress intended for Jai and vice-versa. Manyata opened the bag and saw a short dress. Manyata took out the dress and gulped seeing the short length. "Yeh kya hai", Manyata said to herself! It had been two hours and Manyata was still in the room. The party had almost wound up. Uday asked Unnati, "Manyata ghar chali gayyi kya?". "Pata nahi, Dada! Humne toh usse dekha hi nahi. Shayad ghar hi chali gayyi", said Unnati. Uday looked at bit disappointment he scolded himself himself for hoping that would have atleast met him before she left. Uday felt wierd that he had such hopes, did the drinks do the trick? "Dada? Kya hua?", asked Unnati. Uday snapped out of his thoughts and said, "Kucch nahi. Tum ghar chali jao hum thoda kaam npta kr aate hain". "Saath chalte hain naa, Dada. I will wait for you", said Unnati. "Accha theek hai", said Uday. Uday went to his suite to grab his blazer. Uday entered and was stunned by what he saw. Manyata was sitting on the bed with her face on her hands. Manyata was wearing a black short dress. Manyata walked towards the mirror trying to pull the dress little up and then pulled it down as it would increase the size from both upwards and downwards. Uday was completely turned on seeing Manyata like this. She would turn him on even if she was dressed in the worst of clothes but this was like a fantasy coming true. Uday slowly walked upto Manyata. Manyata noticed Uday in the mirror and her heartbeats increased as she saw the look in Uday's eyes and he was coming closer. Manyata looked down as she was blushing and looking at Uday in reflection was making it difficult to control her heartbeat. Uday placed his hand on Manyata's left shoulder. Manyata closed her eyes. Uday couldn't stop himself from moving his fingers softly from her left shoulder to her right shoulder through her neck. Manyata shivered as his fingers moved. Uday stroked Manyata's cheek from his fingers. Manyata breathed heavily. Uday's touch was soft as if he was apprehensive that a little force would hurt Manyata, that is what Manyata felt. Manyata had never felt anything like this before. Uday placed his other hand on Manyata's right shoulder. Uday trailed his fingers down Manyata's arms to her fingers. Manyata just melted, she just had no say on her emotions, neither did Uday. Uday had never felt like this before. Manyata's skin was blemishless and her smell was intoxicating. But there was definitely something beyond that made him feel heavenly. It was the feel of Manyata, the innocent and pure hearted, blemishless Manyata in his arms. Uday couldn't control himself as he lowered his face and his moved his lips along Manyata's neck. Manyata was breathing heavily, she didn't want Uday to stop. Uday stopped at joint of the neck and shoulder and planted a small kiss there. Manyata opened her eyes as the ecstasy was too overwhelming. Manyata looked at the mirror and then realization hit her hard. Manyata immediately pushed Uday back. Uday was shocked at the sudden rebuke. Manyata turned at Uday with anger and hatred filled in her eyes and screamed, "How dare you? Mujhe chhune ki himmat kaise hui tumhe?". "Manyata...", said Uday trying to calm Manyata down. "Kis haq se tumne chhuan mujhe? Koi nahi lagte tum mere? Got it?", said Manyata pointing her fingers at Uday. Uday was hurt and asked, "Koi nahi?". "Koi nahi! Kabhi nahi socha thha ki tum itna neeche gir sakte ho, ki kisi ladki k saath zabardasti...", Manyata couldn't complete as Uday cut in appalled her Manyata's accusations, "Zabardasti????". "Haan! Ab niklo yaahaan se, tumhaari shakal bhi nahi dekhna chahti main", said Manyata . She grabbed Uday's arm and pushed him out of the room and closed the door. Uday was angered beyond limit, how could Manyata accuse him of something as serious as that, how could she even say that when she also knew that she had been willing to let him touch her! That was it! "Bad Move, Princess! Bad, Bad Move", said Uday with anger burning in his eyes.
