CHAPTER - 41
Nandini left with Cabir to Murthy Mansion.
Cabir dropped Nandini and left from outside as he had some urgent work in office.
Nandini entered her house and shouted in excitement -
Amma, Pia Di kaha ho aap log. See I am home...
There was no response.
Nandini looked for Padma in her room but didn't find her.
Then she checked Pia's room and found it empty too.
All her excitement flew away and her face fell as she didn't find anyone at home to welcome her.
Dejected with it, Nandini went to her room.
She had so much to share with her Amma and Pia.
All the rituals and games that happened last night and lot of other stuff but none of the two were there at home to listen to her.
Nandini opened her room door and switched on the lights.
She went and sat on her bed.
Nandini to herself -
Pata nahi kaha gaye sab log.
Kitna Kuch share karna tha mujhe in dono se.
But they... they don't care...
Kabse Pia Di message kar rahi thi ke jaldi aao jaldi aao.
Ab jab main aagayi hu to sab gayab.
Agar un dono ko meri koi fikar nahi hai to mujhe bhi nahi hai.
Mai bhi nahi baat karungi unse.
Aane to do unhe.
Saying this she made a grumpy face and sat on her bed with crossed legs and folded her arms across her chest.
All this was observed by Padma and Pia who were hiding in Nandini's room to surprise her.
Seeing Nandini's sad face, Padma couldn't hold herself any longer.
Despite Pia's request to wait for some more time, Padma came out of the hiding and said - NANDU...
Nandini looked up and saw Padma smiling at her.
She got up immediately and hugged her tightly.
Pia also came out of the hiding and said -
Kya Amma aap bhi na. Pura fun khatam kar diya.
Thodi der aur ruk jaate.
See. Just look at her face. Kaise Muh fulake baithi thi.
Saying this she laughed heartily.
Padma - Pia chup kar. Dekha nahi meri bachchi kitni sad hogayi thi.
Padma cupped Nandini's face and said-
Nandu kabhi Aida hosakta hai ke mai tujhe chodke kahi bahar jaau jabki tu apne sasural se pehli baar hamare ghar pe aarahi ho. Kabhi nahi Beta.
Mere liye tum dono ki Khushi se badhkar aur Kuch nahi hai.
Tum dono meri zindagi ho.
Nandini had tears in her eyes.
Nandini - Amma please mujhe kabhi Akela mat chod dena.
Hamesha mera sath dena Chahe Kuch bhi hojaye.
Padma - Mai hamesha tere sath hu Beta. Kabhi tujhe Akela nahi chodungi. Promise.
Pia- Offo... Aap logo ka melodrama fir se start hogaya.
Ab bas bhi karo aap dono. Aise Khushi ke mauke pe no tears.
All three of them hugged each other.
Nandini wiped her tears and said-
Pia Di aap to Kuch bolo hi mat.
Mai aapse baat nahi kar rahi.
Mai aapse naraaz hu.
Saying this Nandini faked anger and turned towards the other side.
Pia- Koi baat nahi mat karo mujhse baat.
But you know what mujhe ache se pata hai ki meri choti si behen ko kaise manana hai.
Saying this Pia started tickling Nandini.
Nandini - Ha ha ha... Pia Di. Ha ha ha ... Stop it... ha ha ha.
Pia- Pehle bolo ke mujhe maaf Kia.
Nandini - Ha ha ha... maaf kardiya. Ab bas karo.
Pia stopped tickling her.
Padma - Bilkul bhi nahi sudhrogi tum dono.
Shaadi hogayi hai tum Dono ki but akal nahi aayi.
Pata nahi bachpan kab jayega Tum dono ka aur kab badi hogi.
Nandini and Pia in unison - Kabhi nahi...
And both of them saw each other and laughed together.
Padma slapped her forehead and said-
Bilkul Pagal ho tum dono.
Ab jaldi se change karke neeche aajao.
Mai khana lagati hu.
Nandini- Amma aap kyu karengi ye sab. Ab hum dono hai na.
Pia- Haan Amma aap baithke bas order dijiye . Hum sab kar lenge.
Padma- Beta tum dono abhi abhi apne sasural se aayi ho. Mai tum logo se kaam thode hi na karwaungi.
Nandini- But Amma.
Padma- Nandu... Beta please mujhe karne de.
Nandini- Ok Amma. Jaisa aap theek samjhe. But only this one time. Uske baad hum aapki ek bhi nahi sunenge.
Padma- Ok. Ab jaldi se fresh hokar neeche aajao.
Saying this Padma went out of Nandini's room .
As soon as Padma left, Pia said - Nandu Nandu mujhe tumse bahut sari baatein share karni hai.
You know I am sooo sooo happy.
Nandini felt happy seeing Pia's excitement.
Nandini - Aisa kya hogaya Di Jo aap itni Khush ho.
Pia- Arey Pagal ye puch ki kya nahi hua.
Nandini - Ab bataogi bhi ya nahi.
Pia- Haan . Wo...
Before she could continue, Padma called them from downstairs.
Padma - Pia , Nandu... kaha reh gaye tum dono. Jaldi aao neeche. Baatein baad me kar Lena. Khana thanda horaha hai.
Both Pia and Nandini bit their tongues and said - Haan Amma bas 5 minute me aaye.
Both of them quickly freshened up and went to have food.
Padma saw both her daughter and felt happy seeing their happy faces.
Padma - Chalo jaldi se baitho aur khana khalo.
All three of them sat and had their lunch.
Padma - Pia , Nandu tum dono waha Khush ho na. Koi problem to nahi hai na.
Pia- Amma mai bahut khush hu. Mujhe koi problem nahi hai. In fact Arjun ki family mera bahut dhyan rakhti hai.
Padma - Chalo Acha hai... Aur Nandini tu???
Nandini - Haan Amma mai bhi bahut khush hu. Waha pe sab bahut ache hai. Raj Uncle, Nyonika Aunty aur...
Padma cut her in between.
Padma - Nandu Beta Ab tu unlogo ko Aunty Uncle nat bula. Wo tere saas sasur hai Beta.
Nandini - Ji Amma.
Pia thought to tease Nandini a bit.
Pia- Nandu tu kuch bata rahi thi. Aur ...
Nandini - Aur kya???
Pia- Aur kaun kaun Acha hai?
Nandini - Aur Aarav-Khushi...
Nandini - Aur kya?
Pia- Tu kisiko bhool to nahi rahi?
Nandini - Kise?
Pia sighed and said- Apne pyare patidev ko.
Nandini blushed hearing this.
Nandini - Di aap bhi na.
Pia- Mai bhi kya??? Bol na.
Nandini - Haan Manik bhi bahut ache hai... Ab Khush...
Pia- Oye hoye... Manik and all huh...
Nandini - Di ap bhi na... Dekho na Amma...
Padma - Kyu tang kar rahi hai Pia tu Nandu ko.
Nandini showed her tongue to Pia.
Pia whispered in Nandini's ear- Ab to Amma ne bacha liya. Raat ko kaun bachayega tumhe mujhse.
Nandini gulped her saliva.
The three of them finished eating and Padma took them to the temple to seek blessings of God and prayed for the happy and successful married life of her daughters.
Then they came home. The rest of the day was busy for Pia and Nandini as the guests and relatives came to visit them and bless the newly married brides.
The guests left at night.
Padma asked Pia and Nandini to go and sleep as they needed rest.
Pia and Nandini retired to their rooms after wishing good night to Padma.
Meanwhile at Malhotra Mansion -
Manik came home after a busy day at office.
The whole day Manik was lost in Nandini's thoughts.
He was thinking about the rashes that he saw on Nandini's neck.
He was so worried for her.
Manik wanted to call Nandini and asked how her neck injury was but stopped himself.
He committed a lot of mistakes in his files as his concentration was somewhere else.
Cabir observed this and asked - Manik sab theek hai na. You look worried.
Manik - Haan sab theek hai.
Manik said this avoiding Cabir's gaze.
Cabir didn't probe further.
Manik reached home at night and went to his room.
He changed his clothes and took his phone to dial Nandini's number.
Then he looked at the Time and decided not to disturb her at this hour.
He kept the phone aside and slept after deciding to call her in the morning.
Done with another update.
Hope you guys like it.
