pulled Manyatha back into her room, "Jiji! I was saying something! Why
did you leave!" Jai whined. "No Jai, it's that I wanted to see what was
going on downstairs" Manyatha explained. Jai rolled her eyes, "Lovers
intellect, I understand". Manyatha went red, "No! Not at all!!" she
protested. "We can argue about your undying love for Uday after, but I
want to continue my story!" Jai giggled. Manyatha threw a pillow at her,
"Just tell me what happened! Why are Ma and Papa angry at you?!". Jai
shrugged, "I didn't have a ride from the store, and there was this sweet
lady there, I don't know why but she looked familiar, she dropped me
off and I insisted her to come and meet Ma and Papa, even though she
didn't want to, Papa saw her he got angry and left, and Ma...she told me
to go to my room, and I don't what happened afterwards" Jai was
confused. Manyatha found this suspicious as well, "So what are you going
to do?" asked Manyatha. Jai thought for a few minutes, "I'm going to
get one of my guards to do a check up on her, get all the info on her"
Jai explained. Manyatha grinned, "Accha Hai!". "Kya?" asked Jai.
"Studying abroad actually helped you!" Manyatha giggled. Jai stuck out
her bottom lip, "JIJI!" she threw a pillow at Manyatha. Manyatha ducked
down and stayed like that, she began to shake, the gunfire memories
still floating in her brain. "Jiji?" Jai shook her. Manyatha hugged Jai,
she closed her eyes, and calmed herself down. "What happened?" Jai
asked her. "N-nothing" Manyatha shook her head. "Jai before you leave,
could you leave the light on?" she said quietly. Jai nodded,
"Okay...Goodnight Jiji". "Night Jai" came the reply.
looked down at the keys, then back up at Rajveer. Uday grabbed his
collar, "What the hell did you do?" he said through gritted teeth.
Rajveer smirked, instead I giving a straight answer he said, "You know a
real Prince keeps his weaknesses under lock and key, so the enemies
don't find out, but you've got your weaknesses walking around in the
open" he said thoughtfully. Uday was getting angrier, "Mutlab?".
"Mutlab, Manyatha and Unnati, I almost got one, but decided to settle
for the second, I did to your sister what you did to mine" Rajveer
hissed. Uday couldn't control his anger, HE was the reason for Manyathas
pain and fear, and now HE was behind Unnati too! Uday raised his fist,
and planted a good solid punch on his nose. He sent Rajveer reeling
backwards, Uday raised his leg and kicked him in the stomach. Uday
grabbed the almost unconscious Rajveer, he was going for the last blow
when he remembered he had to get Unnati. Uday shoved Rajveer to the side
and ran back the way he'd come from. He ran to the room Rajveer ha
said, he shoved the key into the lock and threw open the door. "Choti!"
he shouted. No answer. Uday ran around the penthouse suite, he dared to
check in the only bedroom. He pushed open the door, she lay on the
crumpled sheets. Uday sighed with relief, she was fully clothed, 'Thank
God' he thought. When he got closer, Uday noticed she was barley
breathing. "Choti?" Uday sat beside her, she was lying on her stomach.
She seemed unconscious, Uday inches closer, he spotted a white paper in
her fist. He took it out and read it, it was a letter from Rajveer, it
was probably the most heart wrenching thing he'd ever read. It pointed
out everything he hated about her, he was making fun of her, he said
everything, all of
the truth. The last sentence was
probably the worst, 'You were just a pawn, I used you, you got out, I
decided I don't need you anymore. -No regrets, Rajveer'. Uday ripped up
the note, his anger knew no bounds. He was about to storm after Rajveer,
"Dada" he heard the quietest squeak from Unnati. The anger vanished,
replaced by worry, "Choti" he moved back to her. He brushed some hair
out of her face, her cheeks were stained with tears. Uday shook her, she
didn't respond. Uday picked her up, it would be best if he took her
back to their penthouse suite. He got there an laid her down, Girirajs
phone came, "Udayveer? Where we're you?" he asked. Uday looked down at
Unnati, if Giriraj found out, who know what punishment he would give
her. "Sorry I didn't hear" Uday muttered. Giriraj went on about some
work, Uday got annoyed, "Goodnight Dad, we'll talk about this later" he
disconnected. Uday had a maid come and clean up Unnati and change her.
Afterwards, Uday came and sat down beside her, "Please, Choti, wake up"
he murmured. The next morning Uday woke up to Unnati sobbing, "What
happens Choti?" Uday asked. "Dada, he cheated me!" she cried. "Cho-",
"No Dada! Don't try to console me! I should've listened to you! Please
forgive me!" she hugged him. Uday stroked her hair, "Na Choti it's okay,
but what happened last night?". Pain flashed in Unnatis eyes, she
pulled back from Uday. "He
left me Dada!" Unnati sobbed. Uday felt terrible, "No Choti don't cry!"
he soothed her. Unnati covered her face, "Please Dada leave, just go"
she whispered. Uday stood up and moved towards the door, Rajveer would
pay for this, he glared at the door. As soon as he got out, he calls his
secretary, "I want you to find the whereabouts of that scoundrel
Rajveer!" he barked the orders into the phone. Tej replied a few minutes
later, "Yuvraj Sa he's at the airport, he's boarding his flight!". Uday
grabbed his car keys, "How long will It take?" asked Uday. "Depends
where are you?" Tej muttered. "Hotel! Hurry!" Uday twisted the doorknob.
"Too late Yuvraj Sa, you're not going to make it, he boarded" Tej
sounded sad on the other line. Uday slammed the open door shut, "Thanks
anyways Tej" he disconnected and threw his phone at the floor. He sat
down, and held his head in his hands, he couldn't help but feel that
somewhere in all of this, it was his fault. Ever since his mom died, and
his father began treating him like a stranger, Uday didn't know any
other feeling except Superiority, superiority above others. When he met
Manyatha she brought a whole flood of new emotions, Uday was still new
to them. That's why feeling sad after 16 years was taking its toll on
him. He needed to share his inner turmoil about Unnati with someone,
there was no one he could share it with, except...
was early morning, the tiny rays of sunlight shone down on Manyatha.
She turned away from the sun, would she be able to sleep again? No. The
loud shouting and crashing noises outside her door wouldnt let her. She
rubbed the sleep out of her eyes and rolled off the bed. She went to her
washroom and brushed and combed her long hair. She kept on her Red
nightie, she didn't think it was necessary to change if the engagement
was in the evening. Manyatha slipped on a pair of slippers and scooted
outside, she looked over the stairs, DS was busy talking with Komal, and
Brijraj was explaining something to the security team. She yawned, and
continued down the stairs. No one had noticed her yet. She passed Jais
room, she was on her laptop, skypeing someone, maybe Vijay? Manyatha
continued down the hall, until she got to a small door. Manyatha pushed
the door open and entered the tranquil Private Garden, away from the
hustle and bustle. She found herself a nice swinging bench and sat down.
She pulled her knees close to her and closed her eyes. To others it
would look like she is soaking the sun or napping, well they were wrong.
She was trying get her composure, the incident from yesterday was still
fresh in her mind. Her swing seemed to dip more then normal, even
without opening her eyes she knew who it was, "Subah, Subah aagaya Humey
pareshan karna liya?" Manyatha murmured. "Ankhey toh kolo!" Udays voice
didn't have the usual flirty tone, he sounded depressed. Manyatha
opened her eyes, "Kya hua Uday?" she asked. Uday, who was wearing a half
sleeve white shirt, and his usual jeans, replied "Nothing happened to
me, it happened to Choti" Uday sighed. Manyatha looked concerned, "What
happens to Unnati?". Uday recalled the events from last night. "Us
Rajveer be toh Hud! Kartee! I'll have my guards after him! I won't let
him live!" Manyatha stopped swinging and gripped the chains of the
swing. Uday gave her a small smile, "I felt like that too, but, I don't
even know what happened! And I think Unnati is more important right now,
you should've seen her this morning, hollow eyes with dark circles,
pale skin, she wouldn't eat! I almost had to force feed her! She's like a
living, breathing zombie Manyatha! She won't be able to come to the
engagement" Uday shook his head. Manyatha for the first time, saw Udays
'Little Helpless Boy' side. She put a reassuring hand on his shoulder,
"Dekh Uday, Unnati was my bet friend after you left, then Jai, doesn't
matter she was in with the huge lie everyone told me, even though we've
grown distant over the last few years, I want her at my engagement, I
want my best friend there, to stand beside me!" Manyathas voice was
soft, "If she doesn't come after you tell her to, I'll talk to her".
Uday smiled at her, he surprised her with a hug, "Thanks Princess,
talking to you made me feel much better". Manyatha was surprised, but
she didn't mind, she hesitantly but her arms around him. Uday was the
first one to break the hug, "If we hadn't been talking, that would've
been fine too" Uday winked. The old flirt was back, she rolled her eyes,
"You'll never change will you?". Uday chuckled, "See you in the evening
princess, and don't forget to check under your bed" he stood up.
Manyatha stood up too, "Aacha hua! You're leaving" Manyatha grinned.
Uday didn't leave right away, he moved closer to Manyatha. She got
nervous, "Uh aren't you going to leave?". Uday put his hands on her
waist and pulled her closer, "Not yet". He tucked a lock of her hair
behind her ear, and leaned in, Manyatha closed her eyes as his rough
lips touched down on her soft cheeks, he didn't move back all the way,
he still had his lips brushing up against her cheek, sending chills down
her back, "That's my thank you kiss to you" he smiled. And then
suddenly he was gone, Manyatha opened her eyes, was that all her
evening came but no matter what Uday did, Unnati didn't get out of bed.
She refused to go to the engagement. Uday was ready, he was leaving, he
looked back at Unnati one last time, "Bye Choti!" he shouted. No
answer. The venue was a large hall right across from his hotel, he
decided to arrive in style, and by style he meant huge limousine.
Manyatha had already arrived but they'd taken her away to a separate
room to do a touch up. Giriraj was cranky, "Where's Unnati!?" he asked.
Uday covered for her, "She wasn't feeling well". Giriraj grumbled
something and went to the bar. Uday stood in the middle of the room in
his awesome blue sherwani attending guests. A few minutes later Jai
appeared at the top of the stairs in a pale blue net sari. "Ladies and
Gentlemen! I present to you Yuvrani Manyatha!" the spot light travelled
past Jai. She was loony absolutley terribly stunning. She was wearing a
blue and red lehengha, golden earnings in her ears, a large gold set on
her neck. She looked like an angel, she even walked like one. Manyatha
seemed to glide down the stairs to where Uday stood at the bottom. He
held out her hand, she took it and shone everyone a fake smile, "Unnati
Kahan hai?" she whispered through her teeth. Uday helped her up to the
podium, and replied, "She didn't listen!". Jai brought their rings, "Ek
mint!" Manyatha stopped everyone, "I have a request Dadi Sahib" Manyatha
turned to her grandmother, "If I could get Unnati, please?!" Manyatha
asked. DS looked surprised, "Okay but quickly!".
helped Manyatha practically run across the street, they entered the
penthouse. Without saying a word Manyatha went towards Unnatis room. She
closed the door and told him to wait outside. Uday leaned up against
the door and listened, he heard Manyathas soft voice and Unnatis sobbing
voice. He began to think that how different Manyatha was from
past girlfriends, they'd always hated Unnati and thought of her as
annoying and extra baggage, but Manyatha treated her like a sister. They
were there for ten minutes, until Manyatha came out of the room with a
smile, she was followed by Unnati who was wearing a pink anarkali style
suit. Unnati gave him a tired smile and followed Manyatha. Back at the
engagement everyone greeted Unnati, everyone settled down, Uday and
Manyatha were back on the podium. She was genuinely smiling and Uday was
grinning wide, he took the ring for her, a simple platinum ring with a
peacock colored gem in the middle, Manyatha took Udays ring, a clear
diamond one. He put out his hand, Manyathas was so close to put the ring
on his hand when, "APKE BHAI KAY BEGAR SAGAI KAR RIYA HAI!" came a
shout from the entrance. Everyone's Heads swiveled towards the door.
"VIJAY BHAI!" Manytha squealed. He stood at the entrance with open arms.
Manyatha stepped down from the podium and ran to him, "When did you
come!?". "As you can see right now!" he laughed. Manyatha was extremely
happy, "Bua Sa?". "Mum and Dad had work!" Vikay explained. Uday nodded
to him, "Vijay Banna" he smiled. Vijay have a darling wave, "Hi hi
again all the guests greeted Vijay, when finally the ring exchange
started up again. The diamond ring was touching the tip of his finger,
"RUKH JAO!" a gravelly feminine voice called out.
So how was it? Don't worry Unnati will get better! Guess who'll help
her? You guessed it right! Good job! Don't forget to comment and hit the
like button! Believ it or not thats 7 pages on M Word.
Bisleri Bhai is out B)
She smirked at him, "Nothing you can do, there's too many guests". He
volleyed with a killer smile, "Doesn't matter" he pulled her closer.
"I'm Yuvraj UdayVeer Singh, I can do what I want" he said with
confidence. "Udayveer!" A voice interrupted from behind.
