Here is the update...kyaramalhotra enjoy
"Hey aryaman! Where have you been these days?? Haven't seen
you for a while" i spotted aryaman and stopped him, while walking towards the
canteen , with nandini. He is cabir's girlfriend navya's cousin. A typical
playboy. And a plan hit my mind! Yess!
"oh i had gone to visit my parents. Mom is not keeping well
these days" he said and studied nandini from tip to toe. Nandini's hold on my
"buddy, stop ogling , she is my girlfriend" i warned him in
a serious tone.
He did a hands up, chuckling "relax bro...i got you...but i
can definitely know her name, right?" he asked cheekily
"nandini.." i said taking her in a side hug. She smiled in
"oh beautiful name for a beautiful girl" he said flirtily. The devil inside him keeps surfacing. but
i know he will never do anything to upset me.
Nandini looked at me before replying "thank you" probably
she understood that i was ok with aryaman.
"come join us, others are in the canteen" i offered him
"i have got to see the princi...so i will join you after a
while" he replied
"cool, then see you" i replied and waved a bye before
walking ahead with nandini
Once we were a little away, nandini turned to me "manik kya
jarurt thi bolne ki k i am your girlfriend?" she asked
"toh kya chhorr deta tumhe uska next target banne k lye?" i
asked annoyed. I seriously don't get this keeping secret' thing!!
"oh insecure!" she crooned
I rolled my eyes!
"guys, since today i messed up everyone's plan, why don't we
all spend the entire day together , tomorrow. You can bring your partners. We
will watch movie, do shopping, have lunch and dinner together. It would be fun.
What say???" i spoke enthusiastically.
Rest of them were deliberating when aryaman spoke up "but i
don't have a girlfriend right now!" he looked at nandini when he said that. I
held nandini's palm tightly under the table.
"no problem, aryaman, veebha hai na...she will give you
company and for your information ,she is single too!" i said and winked at him.
He hadn't noticed veebha till then but as i pointed out to him , he eyed her
and then smiled flirtily. Well about veebha, i didn't care to read her
"so done??" i asked
"i am in" all of them said. Finally i had put my plan in
We were in the parking. My friends had just left. Only me,
nandini, veebha and aryaman were left.
"aryaman can you plzz drop veebha home?? Actually nandini
has some work and we have to go in the opposite direction" i said, aryaman
nodded and nandini looked at me confused but thankfully she didn't contradict
"but i can accompany you"
veebha jumped in.
"no veebha, it will take time. You are already so tired..go
home and relax" i said a little rudely. She frowned.
"come let's go beautiful" aryaman said and veebha gave him a fake smile before walking away
I heaved a sigh.
"god! Tumhre sath time spend karne k lye kitne papar belne
parte hain!" i said exasperated
"toh fir search someone else for you...you know you are
free" she said teasingly
"strange! This prospect never crossed my mind after that
night" i said thoughtfully , amazed at my own change in behaviour
"so since i have let this cross your mind, now..you can
think about it" she said seriously . i think my words hurt her.
"i am not getting any reason to break up with you" i said
smiling because i felt i needed to assure her.
"there are many reasons.." she suggested
"but i don't see any" i stated
"probably you are overlooking them" she continued
"if that's the case ,then i would still choose to overlook
them" i said taking her hands in mine and entwining our fingers. She smiled. We
were by now inside my car and i started driving.
"by the way, where are we going?" she asked
"where i wanted to take you today..." i replied keeping the
"i don't think you are going to disclose the place to me.."
she said like a question more than a statement.
"you know me so well" i stated chuckling
I took her to a place which i had discovered and no one knew
about it. I had taken no one there. It was a secret place. It was a cliff top
below which river passed. It is a
perfect place to see sunset. As we reached on top nandini squealed in
"wow!! This is lovely manik!" she said
"i knew you would like it" i answered
She turned around to face me "thank you!" she said smiling. There
was a bench too. I cleaned it with a spare cloth that i had brought and we sat
there, close to each other looking at the horizon. I put my arms around her and
she snuggled into me.
"its so peaceful" she commented
"yeah..just you and me...no veebha , no mom dad, no
servants..to hide ourselves from" i replied and she giggled. I smiled at my own
"how did you come to know about this place??" she asked
"once our car had broken down when me and my friends were
returning from a trip, so we were searching for water, i was alone and followed
the sound of the girgling of water of the river and reached here. I liked the
place instantly. I came back to my friends, but didn't tell anyone as i wanted
this place to be known only to me. i had thought i will bring someone whom i
feel like to show this place. So i brought you" i informed her.
She didn't say anything , probably she was thinking
"manik.." she said slowly
"hmmm" i said . my lips touched the top of her head.
She didn't reply. I got curious, so i asked her again "kya
hua nandini bolo"
She broke the hug and was looking down. I felt she is
I held her palm. Yes it was clammy, means she is nervous.
"nandini batao...kya hua? You want to say something?" i
urged her to speak. She looked up. Direct into my eyes.
"manik.." she said
"i have been waiting to tell you this from a long time. Probably
waiting for the right moment. Somehow i have got the feeling that this is the
right moment and right place." She paused and i just watched her innocent face
as wind blew fiercely messing up her hair. She is so beautiful. So so
beautiful. She kept putting her hair aside and they kept blowing on her face. Finally
she rolled them into a bun and started speaking again "I LOVE YOU MANIK. I have
loved you from a long time...but i wanted to be sure of my own feelings first...i
have started imagining, you and me for forever...with our kids..a happy , sweet
family...which i never had...i want to experience, how it feels to have a
family..someone on whom you have full right..whom you can call yours..." she
was speaking and she stood up and i had mixed feelings. I was happy that she
loves me. i felt scared that she is thinking of having a family with me. i felt
sad when i realised she craves for a family. SHE LOVES ME. she must be
expecting me to reciprocate her feelings. Should i just say that yes i love u??
No no no...i can't lie to her...Do i love her? How to know that? Yeah i will
ask cabir...but now ...what to do? I was thinking all this when i heard her say
"manik you don't need to worry. Don't think that since i
have confessed you need to too! These 3 words mean a lot to me...say only when
you truly feel it...and even if you don't feel it..tell me without any
hesitation. I will understand...but just don't force yourself to feel it"
Probably she read my worried expression and said these words
to comfort me. i could see, she was sad. I too got up and stood facing her.
I poured my heart out today to him and felt light. I know he
is not ready. But i am also sure that he loves me. his actions speak a lot. He just
has to realise it. I can wait. I have to wait.
since i had decided i
won't expect anything, and just live in the present moment, so i will do what
my heart says and it says that i want to experience the emotions related to a
kiss. I want to know how it feels. He must be a pro at it. He definitely will
be an expert kisser, but how do i initiate the kiss. Hell ! i don't even know
how to kiss, how to move my lips? How will i breathe during the kiss? oh god
this is so difficult!! Shit! Is my mouth
fresh? I hope am not having foul breath.
Suddenly i notice that manik is observing me with a smile. Of
course he will because i must be making weird faces and pouts. Suddenly my hair
fell open and started blowing on my face. I got busy managing them, but then i
noticed manik coming close to me. he cupped my cheeks keeping the hairs at bay.
"you are beautiful" he complimented and i got lost in his
"manik...kiss me" i whispered. He looked at me amazed. "and
for my benefit i will tell you, i don't know how to kiss" i said frowning. He smiled
his charming smile "let me teach you then.." he said huskily and placed his
lips on mine. A shot of current ran through me and i shivered. My hands that
were on my sides till now, automatically, moved to clutch his t-shirt on his
waist. He moved back his lips a little to speak "nandini part your lips a
little, sweetheart" he said politely and i obeyed. As soon as , i did that, he
started sucking my lower full lips as if it were a candy. Since he was sucking
my lips, i used my brains to understand that i should do the same with his lips
and i took his upper lips to task. I felt he smiled in between the kiss means i
was doing good. Suddenly he nibbled my lips and i gasped in pain. He took the
opportunity and entered inside my mouth. He started sucking my tongue and i
followed his example.
All the while he was anchoring my face with his palms. Soon i
got breathless and he pulled back panting equally "you are a fast learner, i
must say" he said wiggling his eyebrow and i turned red feeling shy and nervous
thinking about my participation in the kiss. He left my face and took me in a
hug, warm hug. "relax...you were good. I enjoyed it. Your mouth tastes
heavenly..trust me" he whispered and i hugged him more tightly. He also tightened
his grip on me. i realised that sun had already set while we were kissing.
NO ONE'S POV
MaNan returned home and slept peacefully. Next day all the
couples went for a day out. Manik informed aryaman about what he wanted and
aryaman shocked him by saying that he and veebha had already ended up kissing
while he had dropped her home. Manik warned aryaman to be considerate as veebha
is manik's acquaintance. Aryaman assured him that he won't do anything without
veebha's consent. All was sorted.
Manik enjoyed the time with nandini and his friends. Veebha was
kept busy by aryaman. So she didn't disturb manan much. Everyone shopped for
their dresses for the farewell party. Nandini bought the dress selected by
manik. Manik didn't let her pay for anything saying she should consider it as a
gift from his side. nandini agreed reluctantly. Manik tried talking to cabir
but it was difficult in presence of his friends. So he let the topic rest for a
They came back and slept off. next day, all the girls headed
to parlour to get ready for the party. Aryaman had asked veebha to accompany
him to the party, saving manik. Veebha had an inkling that probably manik
wouldn't take her, so she chose the 2nd best option of going with
aryaman as the entry required couples, that is-boy - girl, boy-boy or
Soon the girls were ready and when they came out , they
found their partners waiting for them with their respective cars.
in and drove off. but manik's gaze was fixed on nandini. Nandini was getting
self conscious, due to the constant stare of manik. Manik somehow controlled
himself till they reached the venue. But as soon as they were out of the car,
manik held nandini's hand and stopped her. Rest of the couples didn't notice
manan and went inside. Manik pulled nandini and sandwiched her between car and
"manik kya kar rahe ho?" nandini asked shyly looking here
"tumhe dekh raha hun" manik replied
"q?" she asked cutely
"because you are looking beautiful, gorgeous" he replied
still fixing his eyes on her
"toh dekh liya...toh ab chalo na..." she said blushing hard
"naah" he spoke naughtily and finally she looked up confused
"par q?" she asked innocently
"teacher hu main...tumhe sikhaya hai kuch...test lena toh
banta h..." he said seductively
"par ek hi bar sikhaya ...maine practice ni ki...uske
baad..main fail ho jaungi" she replied understanding his inuendos
Manik smirked "ok test cancel...abhi practice karwata
hun...jab tak perfection na ajae" he said and bent down taking whole of her
lips in his mouth. He kissed her with so much force that she stumbled back and
rested against the car. his hands cupped her face and she held on to his
blazer. He was kissing her fiercely, totally dominating her and she just gave
in. This was different from her first kiss , giving a new experience to her.
MaNan were lost in each other , that they didn't notice veebha who after
watching them kiss was burning in rage. She would have shouted then and there,
but knowing manik, she controlled herself, deciding to show nandini her rightful
place in the party. She walked off from
Manik left her lips only when he found that she is
breathless. They both took a moment to relax themselves. Manik noticed that her
lipstick has smudged.
"nandini tumhri lipstick smudge ho gyi h" he said putting
his finger on his own lips .
She opened her bag and took out the essentials and perfected
her make up. All this while manik stood quietly watching her.
When she was finally done, they walked in to the party
together, hand in hand.
