Nandini selfthought -
Sorry Buaji hum aapko pura sach nahi bata sakte.
Ye sach hum apne dil me hi rakhkar chale jayenge yaha se bahut dur. Aap sab se dur. Manik se dur.
Saying this she smiled inwardly on her fate.
Nandini and Shanti were sitting silently in the hospital room when Manik entered.
Shanti - Manik...Tum kaha chale gaye the. Itni der hogayi. Kya baat hai Beta...
Manik - Bua Maine bataya tha na ke mujhe Kuch kaam tha .
Shanti - Aisa kya kaam tha Beta Jo tum Hume yahan akele chodke chale gaye.
Itni raat ko kya kaam ho sakta hai?
Manik -Bas tha Kuch important kaam.
Saying this he looked at Nandini.
Nandini in turn avoided eye contact with Manik.
Manik then looked at Shanti and said- Sorry Bua... I shouldn't have left you guys alone here. Dobara aisa nahi hoga.
Saying this he held his ears.
Arey mai to bas aise hi bolrahi thi.
Tu maafi kyu maang rahe ho.
Waise tumhara kaam hua ya nahi?
Manik - Haan Bua almost ho hi gaya samjhiye.
Shanti - Acha theek hai. Tum yahan Par baitho mai abhi aati hoon.
Nandini didn't want Shanti to leave her alone with Manik.
Nandini - But Buaji aap kahan jarahi ho? Yahi rahiye na...
Shanti - Nandini Beta mai Kahin nahi jarahi hoon bas washroom jakar aati hoon.
Saying this Shanti went away.
Manik stood there just looking at Nandini.
There was an awkward silence in the room.
Finally Manik broke the silence...
Manik - Nandini...
Nandini looked at him for a second and then lowered her head.
Manik - Nandini. I can understand how you might be feeling right now...
Manik... Hame us baare me baat nahi karni hai.
Aap baar baar kyu yaad dila rahe ho. Hume nahi sonchna us baare me.
Jo bhi hua please bhool jayiye.
I know that you must be regretting it. Hum jante hai ke aap Aaliya ko pasand karte hai.
Jo bhi hua wo nahi hona chahiye tha. But please just forget it.
Kuch hi din me hamari shaadi hone wali hai to hum hamesha ke liye aap logon se dur chale jayenge.
Then you can start your life afresh with Aliya and I don't want you to keep feeling guilty about it all the time.
Nandini's heart hurt while saying this.
She was just not able to tolerate even the thought of Manik being with someone else.
But she had to do it as Nyonika didn't like her even a single bit.
Manik was surprised to hear all this from Nandini.
Manik to Nandini - Are you happy with the marriage?
Nandini -Yes. I am very happy.
Manik knew that Nandini was lying but he kept quiet.
He first wanted to talk to Nyonika about calling off the wedding.
By the time, Shanti also came .
Shanti - Kya hua tum dono itne chup chap kyu baithe ho?
Manik - Kuch nahi Bua bas aise hi.
Shanti - Acha theek hai. Waise Manik tumhari friend kya naam hai uska... Aliya... Kaisi hai wo?
Kuch baat aage badi tum dono ki...
Manik - Bua ... Wo actually...
Shanti - Haan Haan samajgayi. Tu abhi nahi batana chahta na.
Theek hai . Mai force nahi karoongi.
Jab tera Mann kare bata dena.
Waise raat bahut hogayi hai.
Nandini tum sojao Beta. Abhi Doctor se meri baat Hui hai.
Doctor ne kaha ki tumhe Subah hote hi discharge kardenge.
Manik stole a glance of Nandini.
Shanti - Manik tu bhi thoda rest karle.
Manik - No Bua aap yahan couch pe sojaiye. I am comfortable on this chair.
Shanti agreed and fell asleep within few minutes.
Manik sat on the chair and rested his head to the wall.
Nandini looked at Manik.
Manik's eyes were closed.
Nandini kept on looking at Manik for a long time.
Her eyes were filled with tears and tears started rolling down her cheeks.
Nandini selfthought -
I love you Manik.
I love you so much.
I can't stay away from you.
Kaash hum sath reh sakte hamesha ke liye.
But i can't see you with other girl. Mai nahi seh paaungi.
Isiliye Maine yahan se bahut dur jaane ka faisla liya hai.
I just hope sab theek se hojaye aur fir kisiko bina bataye mai yahan se chali jaungi.
But I have to be careful that Soha doesn't come to know of all this.
Thank God Mujhe sahi time pe pata chalgaya warna Soha pata nahi kya karti unke sath...
(Author Note- Confused!!!!!!
Let's go into the flashback -
Nandini was as usual returning from her institute.
Nandini was trying to avoid Manik as he would somehow figure out that she was not happy and would come to know her marriage thing.
And he would definitely ask her about her future husband.
When Nandini was about to enter their house, a lady in her early thirties stopped her.
Nandini stopped on hearing her.
Nandini - Aap mujhse baat kar rahi ho?
Lady- Ji... Aap hi Nandini Madam ho na...
Nandini - Ji... Aap kaun?
Lady- Mai wahi badnaseeb aurat hoon jiske pati se apki shadi hone wali hai.
Please aisa anarth mat kijiye.
Nandini - Kya... But ap dono ka toh divorce ho gaya tha na.
Lady- Nahi. Hamara talak nahi hua.Wo to mujhse bahut pyaar karte hai.
Nandini Wo Soha Madam ne dhamki Di hai ki Agar ye aapse shadi nahi karenge to ...
Nandini got shocked hearing this.
Nandini - Toh...
Lady- Toh wo hamare bete ko maar degi.
Mera chota sa Beta unke paas hai. Agar mere pati ne ye shadi nahi ki toh... to mera bachcha...
Saying this the lady broke down in tears.
Nandini- Dekhiye aap please roiye mat. Aap hamare sath chaliye.
Saying this Nandini took her to a nearby park.
Both of them sat on a bench and then Nandini asked - Aapne ye baat Pehle kyu nahi bataya hame. Itne dino se aap khamosh kyu ho?
Maine bahut koshish ki Par kabhi mauka nahi Mila.
Magar aaj kisi bhi tarah mai Soha Madam ki nazron se bachkar aapse milne aayi hoon.
Aap please Kuch kijiye.
Ye shadi Kisi bhi tarah rok dijiye. Hum aapke pao padte hai.
Nandini - Arey nahi... Kaisi baatein kar rahi ho aap.
Sab kuch jaanne ke baad hum kaise karsakte hai ye shadi.
Aap bilkul bhi fikar mat kijiye mai Mummyji se baat karungi.
Lady got frightened after hearing this.
Lady- Nahi aap Badi Madam ko Kuch mat bataiye.
Warna mera bachcha mujhe kabhi nahi milega.
Soha Madam nahi chodengi usey.
Nandini -Acha theek hai hum kisise Kuch nahi batayenge.
Hum khud hi Kuch karte hai.
Aap bilkul bhi fikar mat kijiye. Sab theek ho jayega.
Nandini thought for sometime and discussed a plan with the lady.
Nandini - Agar sab kuch theek raha to aapko apka bachcha bhi miljayega aur apka pati bhi.
The lady thanked Nandini and went away.
Nandini spent some time alone in the park and then came back to her house.
End of flashback.)
Nandini was thinking about all this when Manik opened his eyes.
Seeing this Nandini immediately closed her eyes and pretended to sleep.
Manik looked at Nandini and thought about how Nandini was trying to be so strong when in reality she was suffering so much.
Manik self thought-
I know Nandini that you love me.
Tum ye sab isiliye bol rahi ho taki mai guilty feel na karu.
But I am feeling more guilty now after hearing all this from you.
How can you be so selfless.
Tumhe khudki Khushi se badhkar dusro ki Khushi ki parwah hai.
I can't be selfish now.
I know that I like Aliya but I guess it's just attraction nothing else but with you I feel different.
I don't know what I feel for you is love or no but it's a special feeling.
And I will make sure that you no longer suffer.
Your happiness is my responsibility from now on.
I will try my level best to fill your life with happiness and love.
Saying this Manik rested his head to the wall and fell asleep.
