Nyonika was facing to and fro in her room in an angry mode.
Soha entered the room and found Nyonika in a bad mood.
Soha- Kya hua Aunty aap Pareshan lag rahi ho. Sab theek hai na.
Nyonika - Kuch theek nahi hai.
Soha- Bataiye to sahi hua kya.
Tum sahi thi Nandini ke baare me.
Mujhe hi samajhne me galti hogayi.
Mai Kuch der ke liye lenient hogayi thi.
Mujhe laga ke mai usse baat karungi to wo better feel karegi after whatever happened to her in Amritsar.
But no I was wrong. Wo kabhi badal nahi sakti.
Soha - Maine to Pehle hi kaha tha aapse. But bataiye to sahi is baar usne kya kiya.
Saying this she smiled inwardly.
Nyonika - Pata nahi usne Manik Par kya jadu kar diya hai. Tumhe pata hai Manik ne apna first assignment letter sabse Pehle Nandini ko dikhaya jabki usey wo letter sabse Pehle mujhe dikhana chahiye tha.
Soha- Aunty aap tension kyu le rahi ho. Sab theek hojayega.
Nyonika - Kya khaak theek hoga.
Soha- Aunty relax. Aap yahan baithiye.
Nyonika sat on her bed.
Soha gave a glass of water to Nyonika.
Soha- Ye lijiye Aunty Pani pee lijiye. Aur aap Nandini ki fikar mat kijiye.
Mai help karungi aapki Nandini ko sahi raaste pe lane ke liye.
Nyonika - Matlab???
Soha- Matlab I will teach her a lesson for acting all innocent. I will handle her in my way. Bas aap mere sath rehna.
Nyonika was still angry on Nandini so without thinking about the consequences, she agreed to Soha.
Soha self thought- Ab dekhti hu Nandini tum kaise bachogi mujhse. Mai Tumhe sabak bhi sikha dungi aur blame bhi mujhpe nahi aayega. Because Nyonika Aunty will take my side if anything goes wrong.
Soha smirked evilly and left the room.
Meanwhile in Nandini's room -
Nandini - Congratulations Manik. Finally aapka dream pura hone jaraha hai. All the best for your assignment.
Manik - Haan wo to hai. But aise sukha sukha congrats nahi chalega.
Nandini - To phir????
Manik - Wo toh kal pata chalega. It's a surprise.
Nandini - Ek baat kahu aapse. Bura to nahi manoge ...
Manik - Bolo na.
Nandini - Ye letter aapko sabse Pehle Mummyji ko dikhana chahiye tha. Unhe Acha Lagta.
Manik - Ohhh Goddd... How can I forget? Mai abhi Jake dikhta hu Mom ko. Thanks for reminding.
Saying this Manik hugged Nandini.
Nandini was shocked with the sudden hug.
She felt a strange emotion overpower her.
She felt good to be in Manik's arms.
Nandini in a trance raised her hand to hug him back .
But Manik broke the hug till then and said- Mai Mom ko dikhata hu letter.
Saying this he went away.
Nandini closed the door and went to the cupboard. She took out Manik's shirt and wore it.
Nandini went and stood infront of the mirror and looked at herself.
Nandini to herself -
God why is it happening to me?
His single touch evokes hundreds of desires in me.
I know that all this is wrong but mai kya karu I can't help it.
Please God aap hi batao mai kya karu???
She lied down on the bed and smelled Manik's shirt.
Nandini recollected all the incidents of that night.
She caressed her lips with her thumb where Manik had kissed her.
Nandini closed her eyes and softly said- MANIK...
Tears rolled down her cheeks.
Nandini wiped her tears and thought- Chahe Jo bhi hojaye I have to stay away from him.
Saying this she kept Manik's shirt back in the cupboard and went to sleep.
In Nyonika's room-
Manik knocked the door and went in.
Nyonika and Raj were sitting on the bed.
Raj was busy in his laptop and Nyonika was reading a book.
Raj - Manik Beta tum itni raat ko yaha. Kuch kehna tha kya?
Manik - Yes Mom wo actually Kuch dikhana tha.
Manik - Mom, Dad I have got my first assignment of photography. Aur mujhe parso se kaam start karna hai.
Raj- That's a great news. Congratulations Beta. May you succeed in all your goals.
Manik - Thanks Dad.
Manik looked at Nyonika who was pretending to be engrossed in her book. But she was very happy for her son.
Manik - Kya hua Mom aap Khush nahi ho?
Nyonika - Khush to hu. But ye Khushi aur dugni hojati Agar tum ye news sabse Pehle mujhse aur Raj se share karte naki Kisi aur se.
Manik - Ohhh... To meri Mom isliye naraaz hai. Mom you are really too cute. Bilkul bachcho ki tarah behave karti ho. Pehle batau ya baad me baat to wahi hai na.
Nyonika turned her face to the other side.
Manik - Awww... Itna gussa. Ok I am sorry.
Saying this Manik held his ears.
Manik- Mom please maaf kardo. Next time aisi galti nahi hogi.
Nyonika melted seeing Manik's cute antics.
Nyonika- Ok fine.
Manik smiled .
Nyonika- Ab hasna band kar aur dikha letter mujhe.
Manik gave the letter to Nyonika.
While Nyonika was reading the letter, Manik said-
Mom Dad ek important baat karni thi aap dono se.
Manik- Dad woh Nandini... You know she has a keen interest in fashion designing. So mai soch raha tha ki Agar hum uske dreams pursue karne me help karenge to she can go places with her talent.
Nyonika - Koi zarurat nahi hai Kuch bhi karne ki. And how can you be sure that she is good at it.
Manik - Mai Uske bachpan ke friend se Mila tha. Usne mujhe sab bataya. Agar aap ko phir bhi proof chahiye to give me some time. I will show you her designs.
Raj - That's so thoughtful of you Beta. Agar Jo tum keh rahe ho wo sach hai to we should definitely support her.
Manik - Thanks Dad you are the best.
Nyonika kept quiet as she didn't want to disappoint Raj and Manik with her rejection.
Manik - Ok then aap log sojaiye . Good Night.
Nyonika and Raj in unison - Good Night Beta.
With this Manik went to his room and slept thinking of how to get designs from Nandini.
Done with another chapter.
