I am back with another update of this story.
After they finished the breakfast, Manik went to his room and Nandini followed him.
Nandini on reaching the room, closed the door behind and hugged Manik tightly.
Manik was surprised at first but then he hugged her back.
Manik - Nandini... Achanak se ye Meherbani kis liye???
Nandini playfully hit Manik and said- What Meherbani??? Meherbani to apne ki hai mujhpe. Thank you so much Manik...
Manik - Thank you?? For what???
Nandini - Don't pretend as if you didn't do anything? Wo note aap hi ne rakha tha na kitchen me?
Manik was confused.
Manik - What note? Kis note ki baat kar rahi ho tum?
Nandini took out a note from her pocket and showed it to Manik.
Nandini - Mai is note ki baat kar rahi hoon.
Manik took the note from Nandini's hand and looked at it.
It had step by step instructions on how to make Parathas.
Manik - Nandini ye note Maine nahi rakha kitchen me.
Nandini - Jhoot. Agar aapne nahi rakha to fir aur kaun rakh sakta hai?
Manik - I don't know. Wahi mai sochu ki tumne itne ache Parathe kaise bana liye without help and they were exactly the way I like.
Nandini got lost in her thoughts and said- Fir kisne rakha hoga ye note.
Manik - Jisne bhi rakha ho. But finally Maa ko pasand to aaye Parathe. Aur mujhe bhi bahut pasand aaye...
Nandini - But Manik???
Manik held Nandini's hand and said- Look Nandini. Don't think too much. I think tumhe apne studies pe concentrate karna chahiye. Tumhe college nahi jaana hai kya aaj?
Nandini - Oh Haan mai to bhool hi gayi thi. Mai abhi aayi.
Saying this Nandini was about to go when something struck her mind.
Nandini turned to Manik and said- Ek minute... Aap mujhe bhagane ki koshish kar rahe ho?? Haina???
Manik - What??? No. I mean... Aisa kabhi hosakta hai ki mai Tumhe bhagane ki koshish karoon? Never.
Manik pulled Nandini to him and said - Agar mera bas chale to mai Tumhe khud se ek second ke liye bhi alag hone nahi doonga. But kya karoon majboori hai. Kaam bhi to important hai na.
Nandini - To fir mat jaane Dona mujhe. Ek din Agar mai college nahi jaungi aur aap office nahi jaoge to kaunsa bada toofan aajayega?
Manik - Aur hum yahan baith ke kya karenge???
Nandini - Let's go out somewhere. Just you and me.
Manik traced Nandini's face with his index finger and pulled her more close and said- Ok done. But abhi tum college jao. Mai ek important meeting attend karke aata hoon. Then we can spend time together... Alone... Just the both of us. What say???
Nandini made a bad face and said- Ok fine jarahi hoon. Aap bhi na... Apni baat kaise bhi karke manwa lete ho.
Nandini picked up her college bag and mobile and left after saying "Bye" to Manik.
Manik sighed and kept his hands on his waist.
Manik - Nandini ko ye note kisne Di hogi. Handwritten note hota to mujhe pata chal hi jaata but it's a printed one. How do I find it?
Manik was lost in his thoughts when he got a call from the office.
Chucking all the thoughts, he got ready and went to the office.
After attending the meeting, Manik looked at the time and it was 12 pm. Manik told hisP.A to cancel the rest of the meetings for the day as they were not important.
Manik took the car keys and went to the car.
He sat in it and drove to Nandini's college.
As Manik's car left the office, a person wearing a cap came out of the hiding and smiled.
"Mr. Manik Malhotra. Tumhe kya Lagta tha ki mai darke bhag gaya. But you are wrong. I am back. Back with a bang. Aur mere wapas aane ka dhamaka tumhe abhi Kuch hi der me dekhne ko milega.
He said this and laughed wickedly.
Person - Ye baat hamari innocent si sweet si Nandu ko bhi to pata chalni chahiye.
Saying this the person dialled Nandini's number.
Nandini who was waiting for Manik in her college got a call from an unknown number.
Nandini picked up the call.
Person - Hello Madam... Aap Mrs.Malhotra bol rahi ho na?
Nandini - Ji... Aap kaun???
Person- Madam apke husband Mr. Manik Malhotra ka accident hogaya.
This was it for Nandini.
The phone dropped from her hand and she rushed to the car.
Nandini's driver/bodyguard who was beside Nandini picked up the mobile and rushed behind Nandini.
Driver- Nandini baby kya hua hai?
Nandini - Manik... Manik ka accident hogaya hai . Jaldi chaliye...
Driver- Aap please relax. Mai pata karta hoon.
Saying this he started the car and simultaneously dialled Manik's number.
Nandini was hell worried. Tears were flowing down her cheeks.
The driver stopped the car infront of a garage and said- Nandini baby... Manik sir theek hai. Unhe Kuch nahi hua. Unki car kharab hogayi thi. Wo andar garage me hai.
Nandini without replying to the driver got down the car and rushed inside the garage.
She looked here and there and spotted Manik infront of his car.
Nandini ran upto Manik and hugged him tightly .
