Manik immediately rushed out of his cabin to go home when he bumped into Cabir.
Cabir- Oye kaha jaa raha hai itni jaldi me.
Manik - wo mai ghar jaraha tha.
Cabir - Ghar ... is waqt...
Cabir looked at his watch .
Manik - Haan yaar wo Bachche zid kar rahe the .
Cabir- Haan wo to theek hai but Manik we have a meeting in 20 min. And you know how important it is for our company's expansion in foreign market. You can't leave like this.Meeting hone ke baad chale Jana. Kuch hi der ki baat hai.
Manik - Cabir yaar tu to banta hai Aarav-Khushi kitne ziddi hai. Agar mai abhi nai gaya to wo log saara ghar sar pe utha lenge. And Nandini also won't be able to handle them.
Cabir in a teasing mode- Ohhh... to ye baat hai. Bechari Nandini kaise handle karpayegi bachcho ko wo bhi akele.
He said this in full dramatic manner.
Manik rolled his eyes and said-Yaar Cabir not again... please stop this nonsense.
Cabir - Nonsense. Ab meri baatein nonsense lag rahi hai tujhe. Dekhli teri dosti .
Saying this he faked tears.
Manik - Saale drama company. Navya ke sath rehte rehte tu bhi usi ki tarah hogaya hai. Ek number ka dramebaaz.
Cabir - Ab sangat ka asar to hoga hi.
Manik - Acha chal bye. Mai ghar jaata hu.
Cabir - Itna impatient kyu horaha hai tu. Sirf bachcho ke liye yaa...
Manik - Cabirrr... not again.
Saying this he left.
Cabir shouted from behind - Manik but the meeting...
Manik - Tu dekhke . I know you can handle it.
Cabir to himself - Dosti ke liye kya kya karna padhta hai. Chal Beta Cabir ready hoja meeting ke liye.
Saying this he went to his cabin to prepare for the meeting.
Meanwhile at Manik's house-
The kids were playing with Nandini running all over the house.
As soon as they saw Manik, Aarav-Khushi ran to him and hopped in his arms.
Manik - Kya hua my babies. Aap log ro kyu rahe the.
Khushi - Dadoo icecream khana hai apke haathon se.
Aarav - Mujhe bhi.
Manik - Ok Chalo baitho yahan pe.Mai khilata hu.
The kids sat on the couch and Nandini brought icecream for them in a bowl.
Manik washe his hands and sat down with Khushi and Aarav on his lap and started feeding the icecream with a spoon and time to time Aarav-Khushi kept cleaning their faces that had icecream spots with Manik shirt.
Manik smiled seeing this habit of theirs. Eventhough it was an expensive shirt but it didn't matter to him as nothing was important to him more than his kids.
Nandini smiled seeing their bond and how much Manik loves Aarav-Khushi.
After the kids were done with their icecream they ran out to play.
Nandini took the empty bowl to the kitchen to wash it.
Manik hesitatingly went to the kitchen and said-Nandini.
Nandini turned back to see Manik standing at the kitchen door.
Nandini - Ji. Kuch chahiye tha apko.
Manik - Thanks.
Nandini - Thanks for what.
Manik - For being there for my kids in my absence. And sorry again for being rude to you. I shouldn't have shouted on you.
Nandini - Apko thanks bolne ki zarurat nahi hai. Aarav-Khushi mere bhi Kuch lagte hai. Aur rahi baat sorry ki to uski bhi koi zarurat nahi hai. Mai aage se dhyan rakhungi ki apko meri wajah se koi problem na ho.
Saying this she was going out of the kitchen when Manik held her hand by her wrist and said-
Manik - Nandini you are getting it all wrong. Mujhe tumse koi problem nahi hai. Trust me. It's just that...
Nandini looked at Manik's hand with which he had held her wrist and then at Manik.
Manik realized what he has done and immediately left her hand and said - Sorry.
Nandini - Mai bachcho ko dekh kar aati hu.
Saying this she went away from there.
Manik ran his hand in his hair and said to himself - Manik kya kar raha hai ye tu. Now what will she think about me?
Nandini went to the kids who were busy in their playing.
She sat on the bench and looked at her hand where Manik had held her .
She felt something different when Manik touched her but she couldn't understand what that feeling was.
Meanwhile the kids came running to her and said- Mummaaa...
Nandini came out of her thoughts and said- Kya hua Aaru Khush.
Aarav-Khushi - Chalo na let's play.
Nandini chucked her thoughts and went to play with the kids.
Done with another update.
