Shenan, created in 1967, was cement company and have 50 million dollars benefit every month.
"No Mani, I don't want to do on cement" she wanted to do something interesting.
Next, BISEAN, created in 1987, it was a company if engineers and had 87 million dollars benefit every months.
"No Nandu, don't look at me like this, I don't want to do on this, let's see something else" said Manik and proceeded searching.
While an Idea came in Nandini's mind and she suggested "Mani, how about we do our project on Desire".
Manik looked at her with a blank expression then hugged her "Nandu no company can be better than this" He moved back.
Manik and Nandini were happy to do on it as It was Manik's dad's company. So they started doing all the research.
After two hours, they heard a halt of a car. They knew Karan was there. Manik and Nandini jumped excitedly and made their way down. They hugged Karan and Karan too hugged them.
"So how was the school, bacho?" Asked Karan passing his bag to a servant.
"Good uncle, Mani and me are the president of our class. Oh yeah In the morning we got a project, so we are doing it on your company" Nandini was saying all this none stop "and once you have eaten, you are gonna help us" asked Nandini cutely.
No one could refuse Nandini, especially when she said so cutely. So there were no way Karan could have refused "Ok, I will surely help you" he kissed on her forehead fatherly.
Being with Karan, Nandini never missed her dad. Karan was always there for her, on every step, as a father, as a friend, as an uncle.
"You are back" Mitisha came out from the kitchen with a smile. "How are you? how was the day?"
"I am fine and the day was great." Replied Karan with a smile. Whenever he looked at her beautiful wife, he forget all his tension. She is his life, without seeing her, his day didn't pass. "How was yours?"
"Good, now go take a shower and come down to eat" said Mitisha, almost in an ordering tone.
"Your wish my command" said Karan with a wide grin and all of them chuckled.
Karan went to his room, he quickly get freshen-up and came down for the dinner. "Hmm, it smells awesome, thanks for making my favorite dish" said Karan even without uncovering the dish.
Manik and Nandini looked at Karan surprised and Manik spoke "Dad, how do you know, it's your favorite dish?"
"Well son, your moms hands cooking has a different smell and I love it." Karan answered dreamily which made Mitisha blush. Karan was now a dad of 18 years old guy but he was still young at heart. He couldn't never stop teasing Mitisha or making her blush. "Don't worry Manik you will know it by yourself in few years" Karan winked at Manik.
Manik lost in his world. He was dreaming about himself and Soha. So lost that he didn't hear Nandini and Karan calling him from the past 5 minutes. Finally Nandini got tired and she shook him hard. Manik came out from the lalaland. "Hmmm...huh..." he fumbled and he was slightly blushing. "What happened?" asked Manik
Nandini said angrily "What happened???? what happened you are asking me Manik, we are calling you for the last five minute but you are lost in an other world, now move you a**, let's go in the room"
Manik nodded his head on what she said as when she called him 'Manik' it's truly bad for him. He stood up and quietly followed her.
Karan chuckled seeing them, they looked so cute and Nandini behaved like Manik's wife when she shouted at him and shew her possessiveness. He so wished that Manik and Nandini fell in love as he heart-fully wants to make Nandini his daughter in law and even Mitisha wanted the same. Karan too stood up and followed them.
The next one week and half passed really quickly. Soha in short spam time become Manik's good friend well not that close than Nandini but yet good friend, now too she only talked to Manik's friend for her own benefit and she hated Nandini. Manik was more and more attracted by Soha, he knew this was not only attraction but more. Was he right?
Shreya, Arjun, Rishi and Neha weren't liking at all Soha getting close to Manik, as she was as fake as her make up and moreover they had seen lots of time, Nandini getting jealous. All of them knew she had some feeling for Manik and Manik too.
Whenever, Nandini saw Manik with Soha, she burnt in jealousy, she didn't like a bit Soha going close to Manik, first because Manik didn't deserve Soha, he deserved better and second because of her heart as it felt a pang of jealousy every time she saw Manik with Soha. She didn't know what was happening with her. She had never felt like that.
Today, they were going to present there project and Nandini and Manik were all ready. They knew, they had done a great work.
All the students were making their way in the next period's room. Manik had already gone in the classroom and Nandini was putting her book in her locker.
Nandini stopped and turned as she heard someone calling her when she saw it was Ishika. Nandini asked politely "Hey Ishika, have some work?"
"Hmm I need your help" hesitated Ishika
"Yeah what's it?" Nandini smiled
"Actually I didn't understand the last period's figure"
"Oh that was easy" saying that Nandini placed her bag on the bench and quickly made her understand. Nandini picked her bad and they made their way in the classroom.
Nandini entered in the classroom and sat next to Manik. She opened her bag and started to search her file. But it was no where to seen. Nandini got tensed.
On the other hand, once Nandini and Ishika had left, Soha came out, holding a file in her hand "So Miss Nandini Murthi wanted to do this project with Manik" she laughed evilly "No one can come between me and what I want and this time what I want is Manik" She tore the project and threw it in the bin then made her way in the classroom.
Nandini was still searching for it. She was on the verge of crying. Soha entered in the room and saw Nandini searching her file, she patted herself mentally. Nandini controlled herself as she wasn't going to cry in front of everybody because of a project; on the other side Ishika and Soha presented their project.
"So now I want group 9: Nandini Murthi and Manik Malhotra to present their project." Announced the professeur.
They made their way in front of the class "For our project, we are going to present you a very famous company names 'desire', this company is owner Is Mr Karan Malhotra..." Manik started talking about the company and It was Nandini's turn with the details of the company.
Soha looked at Nandini and smirked, she knew she had victory.
He waited for her to continue, when he saw toward her, he found her without her project file. He thought 'oh my god, I have checked upon her, she was looking sad and I thought she was tensed for the project, I have to do some...'
He was cut in between "And this company's owner Mr Karan has received lots of award, even last year, he received the best business man. His company do a benefit about more that 100 million dollars per month and moreover, it's increasing with every passing minutes..." Nandini continue saying all she was supposed to say with the help of the project file but now she did it without the project file.
Manik looked at her and was really happy that she handled the matter and that too very well. He showed his million dollar smile. Soha was burning in anger, even tough she had destroyed her project, her plan didn't succeed, she was hating even more Nandini. 'Nandini is gonna pay hard for it'
Once Manik and Nandini finished presenting the project all the room was full with applausement. Manik and Nandini looked at each other with a smile and then hugged each other. Nandini got an electric current in her body. "you were great, amazing, fabulous Nandu" said Manik with a smile
"You too" Said Nandini with a smile too. After getting to her normal self. They broke from the hug and went back to their seat.
All the group presented their project and all of them were really good. "I am going to announce the results. So we will start from the group who presented their project first. Sameer-Aditya 76 out of 100...Sanjana-Ishika 95 out of 100...Ashley and vikram 89 out of 100...and now the best presentation, you all must have guessed, yeah Manik and Nandini with full marks."
All the student started clapping and Soha was burning in anger. Manik and Nandini were so much happy, they weren't able to believe they got full marks. They knew they had done a good work but didn't expect the full marks.
Manik and Nandini looked at each other with disbelief and hugged tightly each other. "Mani we did it" said a very happy Nandini. They broke apart from the hug.
To which Manik replied "Nandu, the credit goes to you, you gave the presentation without any notes. You were too good.".He pulled her cheek to which Nandini pouted, and it made Manik laugh.
Soha wanted just to kill Nandini 'This girl is getting on my nerves, the more my plan will failed the more she will get hurt at the end. I am going to make Nandini's life hell, just a little wait.' She smiled evilly. She was adamant to make Nandini's life hell.
