Sorry for the delay.
But I was a bit upset with the poor response for this work of mine.
But then still some of you asked me to continue with it.
So here I am just for them.
Love you guys for supporting me and my work.
Enough of this now coming back to the chapter-13
Here it goes...
Next morning Nandini got up with the constant ringing of her phone.
Without checking the phone she picked up the phone and in sleepy voice said- Hello...
Caller- Oh God tum abhi tak so rahi ho. I can't believe this.
Nandini saw the name of the caller and immediately got up.
Nandini - Manik tumne itni subah subah kyu call kiya.
Manik - Subah... Madam time dekho ... it's 9a.m.
Nandini saw the time and said to herself- Oh shit.. mai itni der tak kaise soti rahi. Alarm kyu nai Baja mere phone ka.
Manik - Hello... Nandini... Hello...
Fir se so gayi kya.
Nandini - Nai . Sorry. Mai bas Adhe ghante me pahunchti hu college.
Manik - Hellooo... tumhe bhulne ki bimari hai kya.
Nandini got confused and said- Huhhh... what ?
Manik - what what? Kal raat hi to Maine kaha tha ki mai Tumhe pick karne aaunga. Adhe ghante se yahan hostel ke samne tumhara wait kar raha hu... jaldi aao yaar.
Nandini got up the bed and went to the window.
Manik waved his hand at her and said- Ab jaldi ready hokar neeche aajao. Agar 15 min me nahi aayi to mai khud hi upar aajaunga tumhe lene.
Nandini - No no. Upar mat aana. Mai aati hu...
Saying this she kept the phone and rushed to the bathroom to get ready.
She got ready in exactly 15 min and rushed down after taking her bag and mobile.
Manik was waiting for her in the car.
As soon as he saw her , a smile crept on his lips seeing how pretty she was looking. Then he remembered his bet and straightened himself.
Nandini came to him and said- I am sooo sorry Manik. Pata nai mai late kaise uthi .
Manik - It's Ok Nandini. Relax. Ab jaldi karo warna late hojayenge college ke liye.
Nandini nodded and sat in the car and they drove away.
Nandini self thought- Manik tum kitne ache ho. You are taking so much efforts to help me in learning dance. I have heard that tum subah 10 baje se Pehle nahi uththe. But aaj tum mere liye jaldi uth gaye. I should thank you for this.
Manik snapped her out of her thoughts and asked- Kaha khogayi. Kahin mere bare me to nahi soch rahi ho na.
Nandini was surprised that how Manik knew that she was thinking about him.
Nandini - Tumhe kaise pata ki mai tumhare baare me soch rahi hu...
Then she realised what she said and bit her tongue.
Manik raised an eyebrow and smirked seeing her .
Nandini - Nai. Mera Matlab... Mai tumhare baare me nahi soch rahi thi.
Manik - It's Ok Nandini. Chupane ki koshish mat karo. I can see that in your eyes that you are thinking about me. Par tum soch kya rahi thi. Batao.
Nandini blushed hard hearing this and turned her face towards the other side.
She thought to herself - Nandini tu stupid, idiot aur ek number ki pagal hai . Kuch bolne se Pehle soch nahi sakti kya . Aage se dhyan rakhna.
They reached college and Nandini said- Bye Manik. Class ke baad milte hai.
She was about to go to the class when Manik held her hand .
Nandini - Kya hua.
Manik - What class?
Nandini - Arey mera lecture hai . It's very important.
Manik - Relax . Maine professor se baat karni hai. He has permitted us to skip the lecture. He will give the notes of today's lecture to you. Don't worry.
Nandini - Ok. To ab. Practice karein.
Manik - No.
Nandini - No. But why?
Manik - Nandini you are really impossible.
He said this shaking his head.
Nandini - But Maine kya kiya. Hua kya hai.
Manik - Chalo mere sath. Pata chal jayega.
Saying this he took her to the canteen all the way holding her hand.
Manik made her sit and ordered for veg sandwich.
Nandini smiled seeing his concern for her.
The waiter kept the sandwich in front of her and went away.
Nandini was still lost in Manik and didn't see the sandwich.
Manik took his sandwich and started eating it .
He looked at Nandini and realized that she hadn't taken a single bite of the sandwich.
He shook her by her shoulder and asked- Kya hua Nandini. Tumhe sandwich pasand nahi aaya kya. Kuch aur mangau tumhare liye.
Saying this he was about to call the waiter when Nandini stopped him.
Nandini - Arey nahi mujhe yahi pasand hai . Mai to bas aise hi kuch soch rahi thi.
Manik with a naughty smirk said- pata hai. Mere baare me hi soch rahi hogi.
Saying this he brought his face close to her.
Nandini pushed him away lightly and said- You are really very self obsessive. Apne aap ko zyada importance mat do. Mai kyu sonchungi tumhare baare me.
Manik - Tum mano ya na mano soch to tum mere baare me hi rahi thi. The thing is ke kya soch rahi thi.
She took her sandwich and started to eat to avoid answering his question.
Manik - Pata to mai lagake rahunga Nandini.
Manik - Dekh Lena...
After finishing they went to the practice room to start their dance practice.
Done with another update.
Hope you guys like it.
