There was pin drop silence in the car, Manvi was immersed in her world of thoughts and that irked Virat. She literally has something to talk to everyone except to him, her coldness towards him never mellowed down. He knows that he is partially to be blamed but yet his little heart expected a second chance. The cold evening breeze coaxed her long black tresses to dance to its rhythm which enticed Virat. He was so mesmerized by her that he nearly rammed into the car ahead of him. Manvi's train of thoughts was broken by the sudden jerk in the car.
"Kya hua Virat?" Manvi finally asked when she regained from her shock. "Ahhh, so you're not on moun vrath today! Anyways it's just my style of stirring people from their deep thought" he chuckled in sarcasm. There was no way he was going to admit that he lost his control because of her. Manvi was obviously not amused by his sense of humor and she was definitely hit by his sarcasms. "Has anyone ever told you that you have a very bad sense of humor, a really B-A-D one" she scowled at him emphasizing on the B-A-D to irk him further and turned her face away towards the window. "Come on yaar, I was just kidding. I'm sorry Manvi!" he apologized. The last thing he wanted was argument over dinner. "Manvi... Please... "he pleaded. "Virat, just never do that again on the road" she replied as she slowly turned to face him. Neither did her effort to blink away the tears or glaze in her eye go unnoticed by Virat. He didn't want to probe her further but made a mental note to check with Jeevika on Manvi's phobia the next time he meets her.
"Where are we going tonight?" she finally changed the topic. "There is a new Chinese restaurant opened and the reviews on the vinegar chicken were really good. Anyways I hope Chinese is fine with you?" he asked. "Yeah, Chinese is fine with me." she replied solemnly. "Liar... What a great L-I-A-R! Was he so distant to her that she refuses to even share her basic preference on food" he thought to himself. He knew that she loves Italian, hates Chinese food and was allergic to vinegar. He took a 3 hour crash course to learn about her basic likes and dislikes from his Bhabhi under pretext that he didn't want to disappoint Manvi by failing miserably in some compatibility competition. Jeevika was easily lured by her Devar and she naively told him enough to accomplish his mission. Today, his instinct told him that it will not be an easy mission but he is not going to give up neither.
"Virat, this is not Chinese!" Manvi pointed out when she saw the nice and cozy Italian restaurant instead of the Chinese that she dreaded. "Oh I decided to go Italian instead of Chinese about 10 mins ago" he joked. There was enough of confusion in her mind, and Virat weird behaviors were simply irking her that she regretted on agreeing for dinner. Manvi stood still with her arms cross, she was in no mood for any nonsense and Virat sensed it. "Ok mere ma. I'm sorry "he said as he held his ears in apology with his angelic smile. Her anger melted that very instant but she tried to remain stoic. Virat walked over to her, wrapped his hand around her shoulder and whispered in her ears "You seriously thought I would take you to Chinese? I know you hate Chinese, I know you love Italian and I know you had a bad day at work, so I promise not to torture you any further my lame jokes. Now will you please join me for dinner?" Virat finally saw a genuine smile on her face as she nodded in agreement. "Ab chalo because I'm famished" he declared as he whisked her off to the restaurant. His proximity, the huskiness in his voice and the mixed smell of his perfume and after shave drove her insane. She was thankful he was holding her else she would have wobbled down long ago. Manvi loved the ambiance of the restaurant, the place had beautiful and classy interior; she felt welcomed the moment she stepped in. Manvi gauged that it must be Virat's favourite place because everyone seems to know him by name. The waiter welcomed Manvi with a stalk of red rose and accompanied them to their table; Virat's favourite spot as declared by the waiter.
They were about relish on their dinner when Manvi heard an unfamiliar voice,"Virat, is that you?" Manvi saw a spark in Virat's eye when he saw the person who greeted him. He immediately got up to and hugged her. "Maya, What a wonderful surprise! When did you arrive in India?" he asked her. The moment she heard the name Maya, Manvi felt like she was hit by lightning. That very name brought Manvi tumbling down to earth, brought her back to reality and her senses. She slowly turned to see the person whom she has heard countlessly being talked about in Vandhera mansion behind her back. There stood a tall, slender figure with a body that every girl would die for. There was no room for imperfection in her. Her hazel brown eyes were shining in joy; her skin was glowing in the dim light as if she was some Greek goddess. Suddenly Virat's words on their wedding day replayed in her mind, "Don't even bother trying, you can never come close to Maya let alone replacing her in my life!" Today she realized the meaning behind those words; suddenly she felt tears welling up in her. "Relax Manvi, relax..." she told herself as she slowly recomposed herself. Manvi struggled to fake a smile on her lips as Virat introduced Maya to her. The more she looked at Maya, the more she broke within her and she didn't know why. The moment Manvi heard the next line, she was completely shattered. "I wanted to celebrate the Milan show success along with my homecoming but was surprised to be told that my favourite spot in the restaurant was taken. So I decided to pop by to see who has stolen my lucky spot and look what I have found!" Nothing else registered in her mind after that, she went totally blank with the fake smile still plastered on her face.
Virat noticed Manvi toying with her food; she hardly ate mouthful. "Kya hua Manvi, you don't like your food?" he asked her while he tried to study her expression. "Kuch nahi, food is great par mujhe bhook nahi. If you can excuse me, I need to use the washroom" she replied and without looking at him she grabbed her bag and left. He was startled when he saw a teardrop escaping from the corner of her eyes as she left. Manvi rushed to the washroom and was glad that it was empty. She finally allowed the tears that welled up in her to pour out; it just kept flowing as if there was no end to her tears. Manvi muffled her mouth to block her sobs but she didn't do anything to stop her tears. She needed to get it out from her, so she didn't fight against it today. Manvi didn't understand why she was crying, she didn't know why she was affected by Maya's presence today. It was a known fact that Virat loved Maya, Maya was his life and their marriage was nothing but a compromise for his brother's happiness. He made it very clear on their wedding night that no one can replace Maya in his life and that was when she decided that she would walk out of his life when Jeevika is finally settled in her sasural. She needed to ensure that her action should not jeopardize her Di's life in anyway. She took a vow that after her Di's first baby, she would file for a divorce from Virat and she stood firm with her decision till today. His family would understand that their decision were wrong; Manvi was never a match for him in any ways. He would be free to spend the rest of his life with Maya. "Am I swaying away from my decision? Why is Virat affecting me? Why is Maya's presence affecting me? Why am I comparing myself against Maya? Why does it hurt to know that Virat brought me to Maya's favourite place" the questions were flooding her mind and she had no answers for it and many more that kept on deluging her mind.
Manvi took a deep breath; she wiped off traces of tears from her face. She shelved off all the unanswered questions aside, she was back on track. Manvi Choudry was back in control of herself, Manvi Vandhera was temporary and she will ensure it stays that way. The chillness of the water touched her face; it numbed her emotions and brought her back to reality. She tied her hair back, applied fresh coat of powder and replaced her lip color with her usual nude shade. Virat was taken aback when he saw Manvi as she returned to her seat, he almost didn't recognize her. "Manvi, tum theek hai? You look so pale? Shall we go to the doctor" he asked in concern. "I'm ok, just that I don't feel so good. Thooda rest and this aspirin would be do the magic." she replied as she popped the aspirin into her mouth. "Manvi, you have not eaten anything and now you are taking aspirins. This is not done, we are seeing the doctor" he commanded. "There is no need to get so hyped up at this, I'm used to this and I know what I'm doing Virat." she shut him off immediately. Moments ago, he felt that the beautiful butterfly was finally emerging from its cocoon into his life but now he felt as if it retracted back to its cocoon and away from him. Anger replaced his concern as Virat signaled for the bill, Manvi noticed that even his food was untouched. "You have not finished your food Virat? " she asked him. "Mujhe bhook nahi" came an instant and cold response. She knows he was angry at her but little did she know that he was more hurt than angry. The journey back seemed forever, both were silent throughout the journey. Manvi pretended to be asleep to avoid any conversation while Virat was trying to analyze what transpired the sudden change in Manvi. He replayed each moment in his mind till Maya. "Damn it, it was Maya..." Finally the reason for her sudden change became apparent to him and the jigsaw pieces started to fall in place.
