I am back with another chapter of this book .
In the guestroom -
Nandini and her mom were talking as Nandini kept her head on her mother's lap.
Nandini - Maa aapko kya Lagta hai... Jo Papaji ne Kia wo theek Kia???
Pati nahi Beta... Tu ek baar Manik se baat karke dekh.
Pata nahi wo kya soch raha hoga.
Tujhe Manik se zyada share diya hai Uske Dad ne.
Kahi usey koi problem Hui to???
Par jahan tak Maine Manik ko samjha hai wo to Khush hi hoga.
Usey to koi problem nahi honi chahiye.
Par teri saas... Wo to bilkul bhi Khush nahi hogi is faisle se.
Pehle hi wo tujhse nafrat karti hai aur upar se ye property me share wali baat.
Pata nahi kaise react karegi wo???
Nandini got up and looked at Swati.
Maa mujhe Kuch nahi chahiye. Na paisa... Na property... Bas mai sab ko Khush dekhna chahti hoon...Mai aisa kya karu jisse sabki naraazgi dur hojaye???
Nandu Beta agar tujhe sabke dil me jagah banani hai to beshak bana.
But us chakkar me apne aatma sammaan ke sath compromise mat kar.
Warna koi tujhe seriously nahi lega.
Apne aap ke liye khade hona seekh.
Main jaanti hoon ki Maine tujhe hamesha sikhaya hai ki doosro ki Khushi ke liye khud ki Khushi ki Bali chadhade.
But Ab aur nahi .
You have to fight for yourself Beta.
Aur rahi baat property ki toh Agar tujhe property nahi chahiye to Saari property Manik ke naam pe karde.
But ye baat bhool kar bhi kisiko mat batana.
Warna tere sasurji ko bura lagega ki tune unka maan nahi rakha.
Nandini - Ji Maa. Shayad aap sach keh rahi ho... Mai aise hi karoongi.
Their conversation was disturbed by a knock on the door.
Nandini went and opened the door to see Shanti.
Nandini - Buaji aap... is waqt???
Shanti - Haan Beta... Kuch baat karni thi...
Nandini - Aaiye na andar...
Shanti came inside and sat on a chair while Nandini sat beside Swati on the bed.
Swati - Shanti Ji aap Kuch kehna chahti thi???
Shanti - Haan darasal baat Ye hai ki aap to jaanti ho ki Nandini ke pagphere ki rasam karni hai.
Swati - Haan wo to hai.
Shanti - Aur mai kal Subah hi Haridwar jarahi hoon. Isiliye mai to nahi rahungi us waqt. To socha aap dono se mil loon jaane se Pehle.
Nandini - Buaji aap achanak se kyu jarahi ho???
Shanti - Achanak Kahan Beta. Mai to kai din se soch rahi thi. Ab jaake mauka Mila hai.
Aur Waise bhi Ab to mujhe tumhari bhi fikar nahi hogi Kyunki Manik hoga na tumhara khayal rakhne ko.
Saying this she hugged Nandini .
Shanti - Mujhe poora vishwas hai ki wo tumhara achche se dhyan rakhega.
Nandini - Buaji aap wapas kab aaogi???
Shanti - Kuch keh nahi sakti Beta. Shayad ek mahine baad aapau...
Nandini - Theek hai Buaji... Aap befikar hoke jaiye. Yahan ki chinta mat kijiye.
Shanti - Nandini Ek baat kahu...
Nandini - Haa kahiye na...
Shanti - Beta kabhi bhi Kuch aisa kadam mat uthana jisse tumhe baad me pachtana pade.
Then Shanti turned to Swati and said- Chalti hoon Behenji. Nandini ka dhyan rakhna...
Saying this Shanti went away from their.
Nandini - Maa Buaji kis baare me bol rahi thi...
Swati too didn't have any clue as to what Shanti meant.
Nandini - Acha Maa hum ghar kab jarahe hai???
Swati - Kal dopahar me train hai Beta.
Nandini - Itni jaldi???
Swati - Haan kyu???
Nandini - Nahi Kuch nahi... Aap sojaiye...
Swati - Good Night Beta..
Nandini - Good Night Maa.
With this Nandini switched off the lights and went to her room.
She found Manik in deep sleep so she didn't wake him up to talk about the property thing.
She changed her clothes and sat on the couch.
Nandini kept admiring Manik and said- Manik aap humse jawab jaanna chahte ho na... To hamara jawab hai ki
I love you too.
Nandini selfthought -
Yes I have always loved you and will always love you till my last breath and even after that.
Jab aapne humse kaha ki you love me to aap nahi jante Hume kitni Khushi Hui...
But Manik I am scared... Scared of the world...
What if someone comes between us. Chahe wo koi insaan ho ya fir paisa???
Agar aisa hua to hum jee nahi payenge . Humto usi waqt mar jayenge.
Manik please promise me that you will always stand by me in any situation.
Agar aap hamare sath rahoge to hume aur Kuch nahi chahiye...
Apka pyaar hi hamare liye kaafi hai.
Thinking of all this, Nandini fell asleep on the couch itself.
The night passed by and it gave way to a new and fresh morning...
Manik got up and his eyes fell on Nandini who was sleeping on the couch in an uncomfortable position.
He went upto Nandini and lifted her carefully without disturbing her sleep and placed her on the bed slowly.
Manik smiled and pecked Nandini's forehead and went to the washroom.
He got ready and came out to see Nandini still sleeping.
Manik didn't want to disturb her sleep so he went out of the room where he found Shanti.
Manik - Bua aap kahi jarahi ho???
Shanti - Haan mai Haridwar jarahi hoon... Acha hua tum jaldi uthgaye. Warna mujhe to laga tha ki tumse mile bina hi Jana padega.
Manik - Par Bua aise achanak???
Shanti smiled at Manik's question.
Manik - Aap muskura kyu rahi ho???
Shanti - Kyuki tune bhi wahi sawal Kia Jo Nandini ne kiya tha.
Tum dono ki soch kaafi milti hai... Aisa Pehle to nahi tha... Shayad Shadi ke after effects hai...
Manik blushed and said - Buaaa... Kuch bhi...Aisa kuch nahi hai...
Shanti - Oye hoye... Tu to sharma raha hai... Kya baat hai Manik???
Manik - Koi baat nahi hai. But aap bataiye kabtak wapas aajaoge???
Shanti - Shayad ek mahine baad...
Manik - But Bua... Itne din... I'll miss you...
Shanti - Chal jhoote... Tu aur mujhe miss karega. Tu to Ab Nandini me hi khoya rahega.
Manik smiled on hearing this.
Shanti - Zyada Khush mat ho. Nandini bhi Kuch din ke liye apni Maa ke ghar jarahi hai...
Manik- What???But why??? I mean ke...
Shanti - Pagphere ki rasam ke liye.
Manik - Waise kab jarahi hai wo???
Shanti - Shayad aaj dopahar me ... Acha mai chalti hoon warna der hojayegi.
Manik lost in thoughts - Jaldi aana Bua...
And he touched her feet .
Shanti - Koshish karungi... Bye Beta...
Manik - Bye Bua...
With this Shanti left with a female servant of their house as it was Raj's instructions coz he didn't want Shanti to face any problems in Haridwar.
After Shanti left, Manik rushed to his room to talk to Nandini...
