Cursing them under his breath and rolling his sleeves more Manik reached down by stairs only to see Nandini hugging his Parents tightly..
"Manik!" Neyonika exclaimed on seeing him and rushed to hug him tightly..
"Hey Mom! What a surprise?!" He said with a fake smile and before Neyonika could reply Ronit jumped on Manik for a hug...
"Haaahahaaa! Manik meray laal! Kitna bara ho gya hai tu!" He spoke in an emotional dramatic tone almost crushing Manik in the hug and Manik made a bad face. While the ladies went awe..
"Dad?? Koi do month main kitna bara ho skta hai? What is wrong with you?" Manik asked in a cold tone and Ronit broke the hug..
"Oye pagal! Baap ki nazar say dekh tou tjy pata chalay!" Ronit said wiping his fake tears away and Manik made a face as if he tasted something very bitter..
"Anyways leave all this! Nandu tell me! Where are my both monkeys!? Ronit exclaimed clapping his hands and Nandini laughed..
"Seriously Dad? Monkeys?? Wo bachy hain meray koi zoo kay animals Nahi!" Manik spoke angrily folding his arms across his chest and Mr.Malhotra slapped Manik's shoulder...
"Chup kar! Teray bachy! Un pay ziada haq mera hai! Am GRANDPaPa! You are simply Papa! So bara kon hua??" Mr.Malhotra asked Manik raising his eyebrow and stressed on Grand..
Manik gave him a helpless look..
"Dad! Your monkeys are sleeping in our bedroom mazay say!" Nandini told Mr.Malhotra and Manik showed her his eyes not to tell as he didn't want Mr.Malhotra to disturb his babies sleep but it was useless to cry over split milk as in a flash of second Mr.Malhotra was climbing the stairs like a bunny.
"Dad!!! Agr mery bachoon ki nend ap ki wajay say kharab hue na tou I won't spare you this time!" Manik shouted from back and run after Mr.Malhotra.
Nandini and Neyonika were laughing holding to their stomachs.
That's how the father and son were. Mr.Malhotra was very well aware of Manik's over protectiveness towards his babies that's why he loved to tease him..
Specially disturbing Neeyan's sleep was Mr.Malhotra's favorite task and after that everyone has to witness a tom and Jerry show as Manik always used to run after Mr.Malhotra for revenge..
"Come Mom! Tell me about the shopping you did in London!" Nandini said to Neyonika trying to control her laughter and Neyonika too nodded..
They both started talking and suddenly Neyonika remembered something..
"Nandu! Neeyo ny Papa bolna tou seekh liya us ny tumhy ma bulya?" She asked with a hope and Nandini shook her head with a smile..
"Not yet! But I know soon he will surprise his Mama!" She said with head low and Neyonika patted her cheek...
Mr.Malhotra peeked in the room with his tongue protruding out of the corner of his lips and Manik reached behind..
"Dad!" Manik whisper-yelled at him and Mr.Malhotra gave him a glare..
"Chup kar! Bachy uth jyen gay!" Mr.Malhotra scolded Manik and Manik rolled his eyeballs..
Mr.Malhotra carefully stepped in and Manik followed him. Manvi was sleeping on Manik's pillow and was hugging to Nandini's while Neeyan was in his crib. Both were enjoying a very sound sleep. Mr.Malhotra who had entered the room just to tease Manik stood awe on the cuteness of the babies..
"Angels on Earth!" He whispered softly and Manik smiled side hugging to his father..
"Indeed they are!" He whispered back and this broke Mr.Malhotra's trance..
"Rise and Shine kids!!!! GrandPa is back!" Mr.Malhotra shouted unexpectedly and Manik almost fell on the floor.
Manvi's eyes fluttered opened and she looked at her Grandpa sleepily before getting up with a jerk and pouncing on him. Luckily Neeyan was still asleep. Manik immediately run and palmed Neeyan's ears..
"Grandpa!!! Ap kab aye?? I missed you so much!" Manvi too shouted and Mr.Malhotra twirled around with her..
"Grandpa missed you too monkey!" Mr.Malhotra too spoke and kissed her madly..
That was it Neeyan too batted his eyelashes and Manik held his head in extreme sadness..
"Mera chota monkey is also awake!" Mr. Malhotra shouted more and carrying Manvi on his back he picked Neeyan up in his arms. With that he almost run out of room giving Manik a heart attack...
"Daad!!! You will fall! Sath main meray bachoon ko bhi gira dain gay!" Manik shouted and once again run after him but Mr.Malhotra didn't stop. Chasing each other like this they all reached the lounge and Mr.Malhotra was laughing his lungs out running around while Kids were going crazy with the excitement. Suddenly his laughs turned into cough..
"Sh!t! Dad!" Manik swore and reached Mr.Malhotra as he had stopped. Manvi quickly jumped off his back and Nandini took Neeyan from his arms. Manik held him and made him sit on the couch..
"Pani laoa!" Manik shouted worriedly rubbing to Mr.Malhotra's back and Manvi volunteered to get the water..
"Dad? Are you okay??" Manik was freaking out and Neyonika held his hands. He had his eyes closed and his head was resting on the back of the couch with breathing heavily..
"Ronit?? Ap theek hain na?" Neyonika spoke and Nandini sat in Mr.Malhotra's feet to remove his shoes..
"Nandu beta! No!" Mr.Malhotra spoke and tried to stop her..
"Dad! Let me help you please!" She said shaking her head and made Neeyan sit beside her on the floor. She removed Mr.Malhotra's shoes and Manvi came with water..
"Papa water?" She said worriedly and handed the glass to Manik..
"Dad! Here! Drink water!" Manik said nearing the glass to Mr.Malhotra's lips. "Kya zarorat the itny bhagny ki?? Ap koi super hero hain? Jab dekho is trha uchalty rehty hain!" Manik scolded Mr.Malhotra and he gave him an angry Manik an angry pout..
"Yar Dant tou ni!" Mr.Malhotra said and this caused everyone to laugh. Manik too started laughing and hugged Mr.Malhotra with that he pecked his forehead too.
"I love you!" He whispered in Mr.Malhotra's ear and Mr.Malhotra smiled..
"Love you too mery shezady!" He whispered back...
It was a lovely moment..
"So my Grandson is turning one yeah!" Mr.Malhotra spoke proudly on dinner table and Manik nodded with a smile staring at Neeyan who was not at all ready to eat mashed Banana mixture. He loved to irritate Nandini in eating anything. Nandini too nodded at Mr.Malhotra while Manvi was busy in telling Neyonika some latest gossip..
"Woow! So we will surely have a grand celebration isn't it?" Mr.Malhotra said biting to a cucumber piece.
"Of course! We will! Almost all preparations are done myny birthday planners say deal kar li hai! They will be here on the day! Sab decorations wagera is their responsibility!" Manik said with a smile..
"Good very good! I wa--!" Before Mr.Malhotra could say more he was interrupted by Nandini's shout..
"Neeyan Manik Malhotra!!! Bohat hua ap ka drama! Am tired!!! Agr ap ny ya mixture khatam nahi kiya tou Ab main ap ko thapar lagaon ge!!" Nandini shouted angrily at Neeyan and this was the second scolding to him by his parents in a single day...
He pouted sadly and started crying loudly. Everyone stared at Mother son fight. Nandini turned her face away in anger and Manik got up from his chair.
"Nandu! What happened yar? It's okay if he don't want to eat!" Manik said softly and picked Neeyan up..
"No it's not okay! He has to eat and he will eat! Or else tum sambhalo isy main ja rahi hoon!" She said angrily and got up. Neeyan saw her leaving and he panicked..
"Pa...papa...paa!!" He called for her and wriggled in Manik's grasp..
"Baby! Papa is here!" Manik tried to calm him down but he didn't stop..
"Pa...papa...papa!" Neeyan cried more extending his hands towards Nandini's direction and this paused Nandini's movements. Other three also got up from their seats..
Nandini slowly turned back and Neeyan looked so desperately at her..
"Papapa...! Papa!!!" He shouted again and applied his full force to free himself from Manik's grip.
"He is trying to say Mama!" Manik heard Neyonika whispering and he look at Neeyan..
He was going crazy..
"Manik! Let him go! Let's see what he will do!" Mr.Malhotra said to Manik. He nodded before bending down and leaving Neeyan on the floor..
As soon as Neeyan's legs touched the floor he hastily crawled towards Nandini..
Nandini's anger flew away in seconds and she knelt on the floor.
"Haan ji aa jaoa! Mama pass! Aa jaoa!" Nandini coaxed him and he was crawling almost crazily. Maybe he was so scared that his Mama will leave him..
"Come come!" She spoke gesturing him with her hands..
"Papa! Papa!" He was shouting with tears and Nandini smiled. Soon he reached her and she immediately gathered him in hee arms..
"Pa..pa...!" He whined in her neck and she rubbed his back..
"Sorry! Mama is so sorry!" She whispered lovingly kissing his few hairy head and he cried maybe telling her that he was angry..
"Mama sorry hain jaan! Ap bhi tou Mama ko gusa dila dety ho na!" She spoke softly getting up with him and ignoring everyone else both mother-son walked towards their room..
"What was this Papa?" Manvi giggled hugging to Manik's leg and Manik patted her head..
"Mama Son tragic story!" He joked and Manvi laughed loudly..
"I will get ice cream bowls for all then we will join Neeyan and Nandini!" Neyonika said smiling at them and all nodded..
"I must say Neeyan is a hell of cranky child!" Mr.Malhotra said taking a sigh and Manik nodded..
"Actually now a days he is growing teeth! Islye he shows tantrums!" Manik said sitting back on his chair to finish his dinner. Manvi jumped in his lap to eat from Manik's plate and Mr.Malhotra nodded..
"Mama sara din humaray peechy bhagty bhagty thak jati hain na! That's why sometimes her temperament gives up!" Manvi said with a pout and Manik kissed the top of her head..
"It's okay! Wesay what about the invitations? Kis kis ko invite kiya hai Manik?" Mr.Malhotra asked resuming to his food and Manik nodded gulping to his last morsel.
"Not much people Dad! Neeyan is scared of big gatherings! Just family and friends! Aur yeah! Mr.Shaheer Singh Rajput ko bhi invite kiya hai! His Grandson Yuvaan! He is class fellow with Abeer!" Manik told Mr.Malhotra wiping Manvi's lips with his thumbs and she look at Manik in anger that why he invited them but he shook his head at her telling her by eyes that's it's rude..
"Shaheer? Oh my childhood buddy! I remember meeting him on his son's and daughter-in-law's death! What a tragic moment that was! Yuvaan was only four years old at that time!" Mr.Malhotra spoke sadly shaking his head and Manvi's expressions immediately softened..
"He doesn't have parents?" She asked shocked looking at Manik..
"No! He doesn't..!" Manik whispered..
"They died in a car crash almost 5 years ago!" Mr.Malhotra said and Manvi looked down at her lap..
She was lucky to have parents and such a loving family at least...
"Ice cream is here! Let's go and cheer up Nandini's mood!" Neyonika interrupted the conversation as she came with the tray having bowls filled with ice cream..
"Haan haan Chalo! Let's go!" Manik said picking Manvi up and other two followed him..
"Ab ap Mama say gusa tou ni ho na?" Nandini asked Neeyan and she rested her head on her palm lying beside Neeyan. She extended her forefinger in front of him and he immediately held it smiling at her..
"Pa...papa!" He spoke cutely patting her cheek with his tiny palm and she sighed..
"Papa nahi Neeyo! It's Mama!" She whispered lovingly kissing his little nose and he sniffed as it tickled him. Suddenly he sneezed cutely and Nandini quickly rubbed his chest..
"Shh!! It's okay! Ab say Mama won't force you to the things you don't wanna do!" She told him with an innocent smile and he smiled back snuggling to her chest sleepily..
Neeyan was a total different experience for her. He was not a single percent like Manvi. At Neeyan's age Manvi never threw tantrums in eating anything. She used to eat all the things though now she was cranky. But Neeyan...ufff he was something different...
Manik used to say that 'Neeyan aik jin hai jo tumhary aiyappa ny humry liye specially bheja hai'...
Neeyan knew how to convince others. Now see this example Nandini was hell angry on him but he immediately melted her heart by doing cute antics and compelled her to say a sorry. And freed himself from eating mashed banana daily! That's how he was...
"Ice cream surprise!!" Manik's shout caused mother son to jump and held each other tightly..
"Oh God you scared us!" Nandini spoke sitting straight and resting her back with the pillow while Neeyan almost pounced on the ice cream bowls which Neyonika was placing in the middle of the bed..
"Neeyan! This one is mine!" Manvi shrieked when Neeyan tried to pick up the bowl which had more ice cream..
"Aeaeannn!" Neeyan shouted showing her his big doe angry eyes and Manvi pouted..
"Oye! Ap choty ho that doesn't mean kay ap ko sab say bara wala bowl melay ga!!" Manvi complaint holding the bowl in her death grip while Neeyan did the same..
"Dedooo!" Neeyan groaned pulling the bowl towards himself and the elders were super happy that finally Neeyan spoke another word. Nandini remembered that Neeyan also learnt aa jaoa and clapping so started telling Manik, Mr.Malhotra and Neyonika about it while the kids lame war kept on..
"Neeyooo!" Manvi shouted angrily and Neeyan whined..
"Dedooo naaa!" He cried not leaving the bowl..
"Neeyan Manvi! Ya kon sa tareekaa hai??" Manik scolded both of them. But both were stubborn enough to give up until Manik and Nandini poured one one scoop of ice cream from their bowls to Manvi and Neeyan's...
"Ab khush?" Manik asked angrily glaring at his both stubborn heads and both giggled. Manvi was eating with the spoon but Neeyan...no comments about him as he was eating with anything but spoon...
"Tum theek ho?" Manik asked lowly as Nandini slid under the covers after putting Neeyan to sleep..
"Hmm! Am okay!" She said with a small smile and rested her head on Manik's chest..
"Lag tou Nahi rahi!" He said softly touching his nose and she shook her head. There was a silence between them as Nandini's forefinger nail lightly scratched Manik's chin and she touched his lips..
"You know you can share!" Manik told her lovingly and she got up a little just to peck his forehead. She entwined her hand with his and he kept staring at her. With other hand she caressed his hair and both smiled at each other..
"I love you!" She whispered lovinly and Manik chuckled..
"Wow! What a confession! Mjy tou pata he nahi tha!" He joked and this time she didn't laugh..
"Am feeling blessed!" She whispered again and Manik kissed her knuckle..
"Me too! And I love you more!" He spoke staring in her eyes and she snuggled in his chest..
Again a peaceful silence and suddenly the eyes filled with sadness and agony roamed in Manik's head..
"Nandu?" He called her and she just hummed playing with his fingers..
"Aj bht ajb baat hue!" He started and Nandini raised her head to look at him. "Mr.Rajput's grandson! Yuvaan! Us ki eyes! They had something when he saw me and Cabir consoling Manvi and Abeer!" Manik told her shaking his head and Nandini frowned..
"They had what Manik?" She asked with a concern and Manik bite his lower lip.
"The samething which I used to had when I was of his age! Deprivation! Sadness! Complaints! He is lonely!" Manik told Nandini sadly and she kissed his heart.
"You know Manvi and Yuvaan! They are so like us!" Manik started again and this time Nandini giggled..
"Yeah right! You broke my appa ka pen and he torn the handkerchief!" She spoke laughingly and Manik too smiled..
"I will talk to him once he will be here at the party! You know! Cabir called me tell that Abeer punched Yuvaan for Manvi! This reminds me when Dhruv punched me for you! They both are best buddies just like us!" Manik told her more and they both were hell surprised on the similarities..
"It's wow!" Nandini giggled and Manik too laughed..
"Acha suno na!" He said pulling her closer naughtily and she hummed playfully. "That kiss in the evening!" He spoke innocently rolling a strand of her hair on his finger. "Is still incomplete! Main soch ra--!" Before he could complete his words Nandini herself fused her lips with his and his eyes widened for a second before he too closed his eyes to respond with equal favor..
"I want you so bad baby!" He whimpered in between the kiss and she tugged his collars to pull him over her..
"Then have me! What's stopping you?" She asked breathlessly as he broke the kiss. He smiled and pointed towards Neeyan..
"He needs you more then me! I will make you tired and you won't be able to take care of him good! So let's delay our moment for a little time!" Manik said lovingly and Nandini couldn't resist but to kiss him again this time coming over him..
"You are the best!" She spoke resting her forehead over his and he sighed in content..
"And you are the bestest!" He whispered back and she pecked his forehead once again before snuggling back in him..
"Wesay don't you dare to think that am not counting the times am controlling myself!" He spoke in a serious tone and she look at him with wide eyes. "Bohat jald am gonna do all the hisaab kitaab! Sara hisaab pora karoon ga! I will make love to you so hard that your each cell will scream my name!" He spoke in a tit for tat tone and this time Nandini blushed like a rose hiding her face in his neck..
"And I won't stop you!" She told him her consent and he smiled..
"I know!" He spoke kissing her hair..
"Good night Mani!"
"Good night sweetheart!"
These were their last whispers before dozing off...
One Day Later...
Finally Neeyan's birthday early morning...
It was around 6 am of the morning when Nandini came out of the bathroom after having a warm nerve relaxing shower.
It was a big day for his little love and she needed to be ready for it..
Manik was as usual sleeping on his stomach and he had no concern of his surrounding at that time. Neeyan too was still sleeping. Nandini knew that he must wake up in few minutes because it was his daily routine to get a feed at early morning..
She dried her hair and brushed them carefully. Then she let them fall on her back. She was wearing a simple jeans with a warm shirt. She was ready for the day and turned to see her little baby wide awake sucking to his own thumb. He was staring at her and was waiting for her to give him attention..
"Good Morning Mama ki jaan! Happy First Birthday! Ap ko meri umar bhi lag jye! Mama loves you so much!" Nandini spoke lovingly as she picked him up in her arms and was first to wish her son..
"Papa!" He exclaimed and Nandini giggled as once again he called her with wrong name..
"Neeyan! Main Mama!" She said pointing towards herself. "Aur wo Papa!" She told him pointing toward Manik and Neeyan batted his eyelashes in confusion. "Nahi smj aya?" Nandini asked playfully and he pouted before rubbing his face with hers. It was his way to tell that he was hungry. "Mery bety ko bhook lagi hai?? Hmm?" She asked patting his back and sat back on the bed to feed him..
After filling his tummy Neeyan once again dozed off and Nandini sighed in relief. She patted him for few minutes before lying him near Manik. Then she surrounded the father son with loads of pillows around and herself got up to eat something as her stomach was now roaring.
She came out of the room closing the door carefully behind her and walked to Manvi's room.
She entered her room and saw her sleeping peacefully..
She walked closer to her and caressed her hair.
"Mama! Papa! I want that...teddy!" Manvi murmured in sleep hugging to her stuffy tightly and Nandini held back a laugh.
"Mama! Papa will get you one!" She whispered in her ear and a smile broke on Manvi's lips. Nandini pecked her princes's forehead and then walked out not to forget to check Smurfy once who was once again almost falling out of his basket..
She reached the lounge to her in laws having their morning coffee along with snacks. Thankfully they had Nandini's cup too..
"Morning Mom and Dad!" Nandini exclaimed immediately stuffing a donut in her mouth and both laughed at her..
"Someone is hungry!" Neyonika spoke as she sat beside her sipping to her coffee and Mr.Malhotra smiled reading to his newspaper..
"Oh yes! Your grandson exhausts me!" She complaint playfully and Neyonika laughed...
"Hai kahan wo? Aj aya nahi tumhry sath neechy! We were waiting for him!" Neyonika asked softly and Nandini shoke her head..
"Bus feed lainy k liye jaga tha! He is asleep again! Manik k sath so raha hai!" She told them..
"So what are the plans for today!?" Mr.Malhotra asked folding his newspaper back and starting the conversation..
Manik was a heavy sleeper that every body knows but the thing nobody knew was Neeyan Malhotra had his own ways. He was awake from last 10 minutes and was staring at his Papa's cute face.
He patted to his cheeks but he didn't wake up. He was a kumbhkaran..
Neeyan sat up and crawled more closer to Manik. Soon he reached Manik's ear and he pulled it again..
Manik just groaned but didn't wake up.
"Papa!" Neeyan mumbled but it didn't make any difference. Neeyan pouted and accidentally a drool dripped of his lips. It directly hit Manik's earhole and entered it..
This immediately pulled Manik out of his deep slumber and he got up with a jerk.
He stared at his surrounding sleepily and rubbed to his ear frantically. Neeyan sat there quietly kinda amused from his father's reaction and happy on his achievement..
For few seconds Manik batted his eyelids and then look at his side to see his little devil sitting with an evil smile while another drool escaped his pouty lips. Manik sighed on understanding what must have happened and fell on the his pillow chuckling to himself..
Neeyan didn't waste a single second to climb his Papa's tummy and straddling him..
"Good Morning champ! You scared Papa!" Manik spoke still laughing and picked up few tissue papers from his bedside table to wipe Neeyan's mouth..
"Oh yeah! Happy Birthday darling! May you have many more!" Manik remembered and wished his son kissing his forehead..
"Papapa!! Aa daooo!" Neeyan exclaimed and Manik giggled getting up with Neeyan.
"Chalo aj Papa ap ko bath dain gay!" Manik said in a flaunting tone.
Neeyan immediately clapped his hands dancing in Manik's arms. The thing with which Manik was accidentally not aware of was Neeyan was not at all friendly during taking a bath.
Manik picked up a fresh Pajamas and shirt of Neeyan from his drawer. Then he walked in the bathroom and closed the hole of washbasin. Then he filled it with warm water and stripped Neeyan's clothes. Neeyan who was happy till now and was playing with his father immediately sensed the 'danger' when Manik made him sit in the washbasin..
"Hey baby enjoying the warm water??" Manik spoke lovingly and poured some water over Neeyan's head with his hand but the stunt Neeyan did was not at all expected as he hugged Manik tightly crying loudly. He was full wet and this caused Manik's shirt also get soaked..
"Neeyan! What happened?? Let's take bath baby!" Manik spoke worriedly in a try to free himself from Neeyan but he didn't left Manik..
By the end of the bathing session it was difficult to tell that who bathed whom?
Manik was fully wet because Neeyan had jumped and cried like a bunny during the whole scene.
Manik sighed in relief when he buttoned Neeyan's Pajama's.
"Phew! Finally you are ready! Hufff! Is mosam main bhi papa ko paseena aa gya Neeyan! You naughty little devil!" Manik spoke tickling Neeyan and he laughed kicking his legs..
"Chalo let's go to your Mama then I will come back and have a shower myself!" Manik said picking Neeyan up and remained careful that his wet shirt don't touch his son's neatly dressed clothes...
He reached the lounge to see his wife and parents laughing on some lame joke..
"Good Morning!" Manik spoke loudly taking everyone's attention and all turned to him just to laugh more on his condition..
"Manik! Tum ny Neeyan ko bath kiun diya? I was coming!" Nandini asked laughingly taking Neeyan from Manik's arms and he rubbed the back of his neck sheepishly..
"Well! It was a good experience you know!" He told her shrugging his shoukders and she awed before pecking his cheek..
"Neeyo! Very bad! Papa ko geela kar diya apnny! Hmm!" Nandini scolded Neeyan touching to his nose..
"Hey no! It's okay! We had fun! Right buddy?" Manik spoke winking at Neeyan and he immediately laughed..
"Okay okay leave everything! Happy Birthday Neeyan!" Mr.Malhotra spoke excitedly and snatched Neeyan from Nandini twirling crazily around with him once again giving Manik a tiny heart attack..
"Happy Birthday Meri Jaan!" Neyonika too spoke hugging and kissing Neeyan madly. At the same time Manvi came running..
"Aram say!" Manik scolded her but she didn't care and picked Neeyan up in her tiny arms..
"Happy Birthday To you! You were born in the zoo! With monkeys and donkeys and elephants like you!" Manvi wished him in her way and all laughed..
Neeyan too giggled pulling to Manvi's pigtails and hugged her cutely. Manik immediately picked up Nandini's cellphone from the coffee table and clicked the moment..
"Di...di...didi!" Neeyan spoke in Manvi's ear and everyone stopped..
Manvi parted away from him and stared at Neeyan's face..
"Di...!" Neeyan again exclaimed and Manvi was almost fainted with happiness. Nandini knelt beside her and she took her both kids in a back hug..
"Mama! Mama! Neeyo ny Didi bola! Oh God! Hyeee! Am so happy! Didi loves you chotay bhai! Thank you!!" Manvi was shouting kissing Neeyan crazily and Nandini laughed with her in happy tears..
While Manik, Mr.Malhotra and Neyonika silently prayed that soon Neeyan say Mama...
They truely wished the samething at sometime...
"Mama loves you both!" Nandini whispered lovingly and Manvi hugged her sandwiching Neeyan in between...
Manik was about to say something when suddenly...
"Happy Birthday Neeyaaan!" They all heard shouts behind their backs and all turned to see Cabir, Navya, Abeer, Mukti, Alya and Dhruv standing with bunches of balloons in their hands moreover all of them had funny masks on their faces..
Manvi and Nandini parted away while Neeyan sat on the floor. All of them run towards him and he stared at them with wide eyes. Nandini was still on Neeyan's back, kneeling..
"Happy Birthday little boy!!!!" All of them shouted again and Neeyan noticed each of the masked face. Soon his lower lip trembled and he let out a loud aeaeaeannn before turning to Nandini and climbing her lap...
"Alay alay! Ka hua Neeyan! See everyone is here to wish you!" She cooed him cradling him close to her chest and all the friends stood worried.
"Guys! Kis ny bola tha kay ya masks daal kar aoa? Don't you guys know Neeyan is sacred of masks and these kinda faces! Usy clowns say bhi dar lagta hai!" Manik told them shaking his head and all of them jerked the masks off..
"Oh sh!t?? Sachi?" Dhruv was the first to freak out..
"But we remember wishing Abeer the same way!" Mukti said rubbing her head..
"Yeah! He wasn't scared of them!" Alya said innocently...
"Aray haan! Abeer tou nahi dara tha!" Cabir said sadly...
"Oho! Har bachy ki habits different hoti hain na!" Navya reasoned and Manik nodded..
"So what we gonna do now? Neeyan tou kaafi naraz ho gya!" Abeer said worriedly and the next moment everyone was kneeling in front of Nandini and Neeyan holding to their ears..
"Sorry Neeyan! We never knew!" They all said in unison and Neeyan look at Nandini to ask what to do.
She winked at him and he turned back with a grumpy face scaring everyone before smiling to fullest...
"Hey you little devil chipmunk!" Abeer was the first to pick Neeyan up and everyone followed him..
After everyone greeted Neeyan Cabir turned to Manik..
"Manik! Teri tbyt theek hai na?" He asked in a serious tone..
"Haan kiun kya hua?" Manik asked in a confused tone..
"Ni bus aisy he! Tu ny kapray daal kar bath lena kab shuru kiya?" He asked in a concern filled tone and Manik gave him a glare..
"Apny bhateejy say kiun ni pochta!? Sara geela kar diya mjy during bath!" Manik told him with a pout and Cabir got the chance to pull Manik's leg to the fullest..
The whole day everyone treated Neeyan more like a prince and he enjoyed it to the core. It was evening now. All the kids were taking a nap and elders were busy in getting ready. The hall decorations were almost done when Manik sneaked in the kitchen finding Nandini working alone. He hugged her from back to which she gasped audibly loud..
"Manik!! You scared me!!" She shrieked angrily and Manik chuckled resting his chin on her shoulder..
"Sorry love! But kya karoon I was missing you na! Sbha say aik kisse bhi ni diya ap ny mjy! So I was craving for it!" Manik spoke like a baby and Nandini turned in his arms. She encircled her arms around Manik's neck and mouthed an O..
"Ohh so baby ko kisse chye?" She asked cutely and Manik nodded like a baby pouting..
Nandini smiled and cupped Manik's one cheek before leaning up to kiss him soundly on his lips..
They kissed sweetly without any haste and...
"Hum nay kuch nahi dekha!" They were forced to break apart just to see all friends and parents standing with hands on eyes..
Nandini's eyes widened and she immediately turned in a rose..
"What the hell yar?? Banda romance bhi ni kar skta kya??" Manik yelled loudly and everyone chuckled..
"Romance room me krty hain Manik beta! Kitchen me ni!" Mr.Malhotra said winking at Neyonika and her eyes widened..
"Ap tou rehny he dain! Mery romance say sab say ziada problem hai ap ko!" Manik roared angrily and Mr.Malhotra laughed holding his stomach..
"Toba Manik! Kuch! Zara si sharam kar lay!!! 2 bachoon ka baap ho gya hai phr bhi? Chii!" Mukti said touching her ears and Manik glared at her..
"Ya romance kay beech bachy kahan say aa gye?" He asked angrily crossing his arms over his chest..
"Aray Manik! Kesi batain kar raha hai! Romance he say tou bachy aye hain! Hai na Nandini? Can you please explain??" Cabir said in an evil tone and Nandini was almost 'sharam say pani pani'...
"Guys please stop na!" She whined cutely hiding behind Manik and all hide their smiles..
"Aray! Ask your husband to stop!" Mr.Malhotra teased more and Neyonika came forward..
"Acha bus! We came to get you Nandini! Let's go and get ready! Guests aaty hoon gay!" Neyonika said to Nandini. Manik immediately turned to her and whispered few words before leaving the kitchen. The words were.
"I have a surprise for you after the party! Just you and me without even the hurdle of clothes!"
