The next morning Nandini woke up and searched for Manik in the room but he wasn't there.
Then she freshened up and got ready for college.
She went down and saw that Manik was in serious discussion over something with Nyonika and Swara.
He didn't notice Nandini .
Nandini thought that maybe he was fedup of her and he was just ignoring her.
So she quietly went out of the house and asked the driver to drop her to college.
In the meantime, at Manik's house-
Manik after talking to Nyonika and Swara about Nandini's birthday surprise, he went to his room to check if Nandini was awake or not.
Nyonika and Swara looked at each other.
Pata nahi ye Nandini ka bhoot kab utrega mere bete ke sar se.
Ab wo us ladki ka birthday surprise plan kar raha hai.
Aur uparse hume bhi is plan me shamil kar raha hai.
Maaf karna Samdhanji magar mujhse to ye dikhawa nahi hoga.
Jab bhi mai us ladki ko dekhti hoon to mera khoon khaul uthta hai.
Mann karta hai ki abhi isi waqt is ghar se chali jau.
Phir sochti hoon ki agar mai yahan se chali gayi to meri Nisha to bilkul hi akeli padjayegi.
Nyonika- Kaisi baatein kar rahi ho aap.
Mai samajh sakti hoon ki aap par kya beet rahi hai magar kya aapko mujhpe bharosa nahi hai.
Mai hamesha Nisha ke sath rahungi.
Aur rahi baat aapke yahaan rehne ki to ye ghar bhi to aapka hi hai.
Jab tak chahe reh sakti ho aap.
Swara smiled weakly and said- Aap bahut hi achi ho. Meri beti bahut hi kismat wali hai jise aap jaisi saas mili.
Sirf aapki Beti nahi hai wo.
Meri bhi Beti hai.
Par wo hai kaha.
Swara- Room me hi hogi.
Both of them went to Nisha's room.
In Manik's room-
Manik went to his room and found it empty.
Manik- Ye Nandini kaha chali gayi itni subah subah.
Manik took out his phone and dialled Nandini's number but she didn't pick up.
Manik dialled 5 times but there was no response.
Then he went to check out of the house and found that Nandini's car was missing.
So he dialled the driver's number and he picked up the call in 2 rings.
Manik- Nandini kaha hai? Is she ok?
Driver- Sir wo college me hai. Class attend kar rahi hai.
Manik- What??? College? Tumne mujhe bataya kyu nahi ?
Driver- Sir mujhe laga apko pata hoga.
Baby ji ne mujhse college chalne ke liye kaha to mai le aaya.
Manik- Acha theek hai but wo phone kyu nahi utha rahi hai. Is everything ok.
Driver- Pata nahi sir. Mai to class ke bahar hi hoon aur wo andar hai.
Manik- Ok . Jaise hi class khatam hoti hai Nandini ko bolo mujhe call karne ke liye.
Driver- Ji sir.
With this Manik disconnected the call.
Manik self thought-
Nandini mujhe bina bataye hi college chali gayi.
Itna kya urgent tha college attend karna ki mere liye wait tak nahi kia?
Pehle to kabhi aisa nahi kia usne .
Anyways , its good that she is paying attention to her studies.
Manik then went to get ready to attend an important meeting at the Murthy Industries.
At Nandini's college-
Nandini attended the class and came out.
The driver told her about Manik call.
Driver- Babyji Manik sir ka phone aaya tha. Unhone call back karne ko kaha hai.
Nandini- Theek hai. Mai kar lungi.
Saying this she went to canteen to have some snacks as she didn't eat anything since morning.
Nandini looked at her mobile and saw missed calls from Manik.
Though she wanted to call him but decided against it as she was not in a mood to talk to anybody including Manik.
On the other hand , Manik was looking at his phone from time to time to see if Nandini had called him or not.
Manik managed to finish the meeting in few minutes and went to his cabin .
Manik dialled Nandini's number and this time Nandini picked up the call.
Manik- Thank God ... Tumne phone uthaya to sahi.
What is all this Nandini?
Is everything ok?
Tum bina bataye college kyu chali gayi.
Pata hai mai kitna worried tha?
Nandini cut him in between and said-
Manik relax... Aaj bahut important lecture tha isiliye mai jaldi chali gayi.
Aur aap busy the isiliye maine apko disturb karna zaruri nahi samjha.
Manik- What? Mai busy tha? Kab????
Manik thought for sometime and remembered that he was discussing with Nyonika about Nandini's birthday surprise.
Manik- Nandini wo toh mai...
He stopped midway.
Nandini- Its ok . Apko explanation dene ki koi zarurat nahi hai. Hum samajh sakte hai.
Manik just hmmed as he didn't want Nandini to know about the birthday surprise.
Manik- Yes you are right. I was busy .
Manik said this and smiled.
Nandini- Meri class ka time horaha hai. Mai baad me baat karti hoon.
Saying this she disconnected the call.
Manik- Hello Nandini... Hello...
Phone kaat dia...
Lagta hai naraz hogayi.
Koi baat nahi jab usey surprise ke baare me pata chalega to sari narazgi dur hojayegi.
Saying this he continued with the office work.
Done with another update.
Hope you guys like it.
