Continuation of Manik's P.O.V
I was really surprised with what I saw.
What an idiot I am? I don't even remember that it's my birthday.
Then you can't blame me for that. Cause my mind was already preoccupied with so much stuff since morning. First cabir's weird behaviour then Soha and then the Pune trip.
However I felt really happy that my friends took so much of efforts to plan my surprise birthday party.
I looked at cabir and he smiled sheepishly.
I am sure it was all his plan. I asked him and he wiped the false sweat on his forehead with his thumb and said-
Doston ke liye kya kuch nai karna padtha aur jab dost Manik jaisa ho to double mehnat karna padtha hai.
I punched his stomach lightly and he faked an Ouch!!!.
Such a drama company he is.
Just then Soha came and took me with her to cut the cake.
Everyone gathered around and started singing the birthday song.
I blew the candles and cut the cake and gave the first bite to Soha then Cabir then Mukti and then my remaining friends.
I looked around and saw all familiar faces but my eyes got stuck on one face.
I had seen that person somewhere but couldn't figure out where.
Just then Soha came and dragged me with her for a dance.
I agree that she is my so called girlfriend but still I didn't want to disclose this to the world. May be because I was scared of commitment. Only my close friends knew that Soha was my g.f. Nobody else knew about it. Soha had many times asked me to make our relation public. But I refused.
For the world I was still single and available. Almost every girl in college used to flirt with me and even I flirted back.
That's the reason Soha always sticks to me so that I don't notice other girls.
But then who doesn't enjoy attention.
Of course I do .
Now coming back to present , I was dancing with Soha when I observed the same girl ,whose name I don't remember , sitting all alone and not enjoying
I wondered why she was silent while everyone was enjoying. Didn't she liked my party.
I thought to myself-What the hell Manik , it's your damn party. It is the most happening party in town. If a random girl doesn't enjoy doesn't mean ur party is boring.
Soha brought me back from my thoughts by snapping her fingers.
For the first time I observed Soha's face since coming to this party.
I was so worried since morning as to why she didn't contact me and now when she is with me I m just ignoring her for a random girl.
I observed Soha to be upset about something. So I asked her and she told me that there was some girl in her class who always tries to act smart with her and because of that girl she gets insulted every time.
Soha said that she wants to take revenge from that girl by insulting her in front of whole college.
Seeing Soha's sad face,I assured her that everything will be OK and I will look into that matter.
Hearing this Soha smiled lightly and I hugged her.
Then after a lot of fun and dance everyone started to leave one by one.
Now only a few people were left.
I saw the same girl talking to Mukti.
She looked a bit sad. I thought to ask Mukti what's the matter. As I went to Mukti, Soha came towards us and gave a mean look towards that girl and said-
Soha- Nandini tum aur yaha.
How come you came to our party. Who invited you?
Mukti came to that girls rescue and said that she had invited her.
Soha gave a whatever look to her and walked away.
Mukti introduced me to that girl.
What was her name ?
I forwarded my hand and said hello.
She looked nervous but took my hand and said hello and wished me happy birthday.
I must say she looked cute .
Wait! What did I just say 'cute' .
Stop it Manik I thought to myself.
I thanked her and then Soha called me .
I bid Mukti good bye and drove off in my car with Cabir and Soha.
End of p.o.V
Mukti took Nandini to her house. They slept there and then next morning she dropped Nandini to her hostel.
