I am back with another update.
Nandini's point of view:
Manik and me stayed in each other's arms for a long time.
I feel so blessed to have Manik with me always.
Even when I had given up all hope on us being together, he was still there for me and protecting me .
My thoughts were broken by Manik's words.
Manik - Nandini...
I just Hmmed without breaking the hug.
Manik - Waise to I don't have any problem in staying like this for the rest of my life but right now we need to go down.
I unwillingly broke the hug.
Even I didn't want to leave Manik but he was right we had to go down as Manik's Mom would be waiting for him at the breakfast table.
And I had a Herculean task at hand and that was to prove Nisha wrong and to bring her reality infront of everyone.
I chucked all these thoughts and looked at Manik who forwarded his hand towards me.
I held his hand and got up.
Then both of us went downstairs.
Maaji, Nisha and her mom were waiting for us at the breakfast table.
As we descended the stairs, I could see the anger in Nisha's eyes.
To fuel her anger more, I held Manik's hand.
I was in the mood for some fun so I kissed Manik's cheek.
But made sure that only Nisha saw this as I didn't want Manik to be embarrassed infront of his Mom for the open display of affection towards his wife that is me.
I was myself surprised at my act but on Seeing Nisha's reaction, I felt content.
Manik and me occupied the chairs .
Maaji served Parathas to Manik and me.
I knew that she was forced to serve me to make his son happy.
She always cared for Manik's happiness that's why she had to pretend to be good to me.
But I knew how much Manik's Mom hated me.
While eating the Parathas I realised that Maaji is a great cook. The Parathas were so yummy that I couldn't stop licking my fingers.
Everyone was eating silently when I opened my mouth to praise her culinary skills.
I said - Maaji aapke hathon me to jaadu hai. These Parathas are so yummy. I wish ke roz mujhe aisa delicious khana khane ko milte.
This turned out to be a big mistake as Nisha immediately said -
Kyu nahi Nandini... Tumhe aisa khana roz khane ko milega. But wo kya hai na Maaji to roz hi aisa khana banati hai. Kyun na aaj tum hum sab ke liye kuch banao.
On hearing this I said - Main... Par Mujhe to...
Nisha - Mujhe to kya Nandini... Tum apni saas ke liye itna nahi karsakti. Haan Agar tumhe khana banana nahi aata to wo alag baat hai.
Then it was Maaji's turn who
said - Arey aise kaise khana banana nahi aata. Ab ye bachchi thode hi na hai. Ye shadishuda hai. Khana pakana to aata hi hoga... Kyu Nandini ???
I didn't know what to say.
I just nodded my head and gave a faint smile.
Nisha - Ok fir done. Aajka lunch tum banaogi.
I didn't know what to say so I looked at Manik and he being the ever caring person came to my rescue.
Manik - But Nisha aaj to Nandini ka birthday hai. Aur aaj ke din wo kaam kare aise kaise ho sakta hai. I mean it's her day today. Let her enjoy it. Aur rahi baat cooking ki to don't worry, Nandini kal zarur sabke liye breakfast banayegi.
Manik looked at me and blinked his eyes in assurance.
I knew that Manik was trying to save me but he didn't know that he was pushing me into even more deeper trouble.
I didn't even know the ABCD of cooking and Manik was expecting me to cook breakfast for the entire family.
I could feel Nisha's gaze on me while I ate my breakfast.
After finishing breakfast, Nisha and me went to the kitchen to clean the kitchen.
As soon as I entered the kitchen, Nisha said - Aaj to Manik ne tumhe bacha liya. Kismat achi hai tumhari. But zyada Khush mat ho. Har baar kismat sath nahi deti. Mujhe pata hai ki tumhe khana banana nahi aata Ab kya karogi Nandini. Kal Maaji ko pata chal jayega ki tumhe Kuch nahi aata.
She started her non stop talks and I had to put an end to it. So I said - Don't worry About me Nisha. Tum apni fikar karo. Mere baare me fikr karne ki koi zarurat nahi hai. Aur rahi baat kal ke breakfast ki to wo to mai bana hi loongi aur Maaji ko pasand bhi aayega.
Nisha laughed on hearing this.
She has such an evil laugh.
I felt like scratching her face with my nails but controlled myself as she was carrying an innocent life within her.
How can anyone be so evil.
Nisha was so cunning that neither Manik nor Maaji was able to read through her double masked reality.
And the interesting thing was even her own mother didn't know about Nisha's true colours. Or did she???
Uhhh... It's so complicated.
I need to calm down or else I will have to see a psychiatrist to understand this twisted character of Nisha and her Mom.
And as soon as I thought about Nisha's Mom, there she enters the kitchen.
Done with another update.
Here I have given Nandini's POV.
Hope you guys like it.
