Chapter 13: Tu Tu
nervously while Geet stared at the family in front of her and then at Maan.
"How's the surprise Maan veerji?" Arjun asked winking.
"Of course accha hi laga hoga, idiot," Anushka offered whacking his arm. "Kyun
"Huh?" Maan chocked. "Haan," he said bleakly and looked at
Geet standing beside him.
"Of coure idea kiski hai,"
Daadima said proudly. "Anyway people
chalo we shall go and give some privacy for the newly weds," she teased,
filing out of the room before Maan or Geet could react.
"Good luck veerji," Arjun
whispered coming out of the room.
"Bujji don't worry, you remember everything I taught you right?" Anushka followed causing Maan to turn red
Soon Maan and Geet
were pushed into the room and locked, leaving them alone. Maan looked at the
blankly staring Geet to see if he could read what was going through her mind.
He cleared his throat to gain her attention but she continued to stare into
blankness. "Geet," he called tapping
her lightly on her shoulder, startling her. "Voh," he began only to stop looking at her confused eyes. Guilt
enveloped him for he knew she might be upset at the proceedings. He had
promised her independence on the first day yet he had done nothing towards it
and Daadima had taken matter into her own hands and decorated their room for
their official first night as husband and wife. If any one were to be blamed
that would be he for letting his heart unleashed and not take any step towards
her independence. What could he do, his heart refused to let go of the love he
bore for her. He believed somewhere she would see the love he had for her and
not go away from him.
Geet was absolutely
stumped by the fact that Daadima had taken too seriously and arranged for, for
suhaag raat! Her mind screamed at the mere thought of sharing a room with a man
whom she hardly knew anything about and to top it off with random flowers hanging
around the room along with scented candles lit around the room. She felt like
disappearing into darkness before she could look at Maan. She felt bad for
ruining his life and unnecessarily feeding into his ideas of an ideal life with
wife and children. She was sure he had dreams about how his life, his first
night with his wife and here she was not in the least interested at the thought
of spending her life with him. "Babaji!"
she groaned internally at the thought of dilemma she was in.
Maan cleared his
throat to bring Geet out of her reverie and smiled nervously at her. "So," he began unable to get the right
"So?" she asked confused
where the conversation was heading.
"I mean," he began once
gain clearing his throat only to be gestured to stop by her.
Geet knew the night
would end yet Maan would still be stuck with the two words, thus she decided to
take matters into her hands. She walked straight to the bed and pulled away a
pillow and a quilt before walking back towards him.
"Arrey nahi Geet, tum yahan so jao main bahar jaungi," he began seeing her walk with pillow and
"Maine kab kahaan yeh mere liye hai," she said sounding surprised. "Yeh
aapke liye hai," she confirmed.
"Kya?" he asked incredulously.
"What kya?" she asked
flatly. "Of course aap mard ho, you have
to sleep somewhere else."
Maan was taken aback
by her sudden declaration of making him sleep outside. Usually, wouldn't the
lady offer to sleep on the couch and then the man would take pains to convince
her to sleep on the bed while he would offer to sleep on the couch and then
they would have a cute fight over it, finally deciding that the man would sleep
on the couch, he thought. Yet here, Geet had personally shoved the pillow and quilt
for him to get out. "Women!" he
sighed and reluctantly took the pillow and quilt from her and was about to walk
out when a thought crossed his mind.
"Ek minute," he said
looking seriously at her, "main kyun
jaoon? Yeh mera kamra hai, agar tum chaho toh you can go and sleep on bed bed
our in the adjacent guest room."
"Kya?" she asked shocked
at his statement. His intense stare seemed to portray he was pretty serious. "Maan aap mard ho. It's supposed to be this
way. Come on now, jayiye," she urged pushing him a little.
"Hello madam, yeh koi film nahi hai na tum koi heroine ho ki main
tumhare liye bahar jake sojaoon. This is reality sweetheart aur real life main
voh sab nahi hota. Ab jao bahar so jao ya yahaan mere saath so jao. It's your
choice," he said striding back to
Geet stood stumped at
Maan's sudden change in behavior. She thought he would be nice enough to let
her sleep in his room for he knew she was uncomfortable with sharing a room
with him. But here he was pushing her out! Of course she couldn't share a bed
with him, but that didn't mean she would accept defeat to go sleep in the
adjacent room. "Hmph!" she hissed,
stomping her foot in anger. "Nahi, main
kyun jaoon, I shall not," she declared with finality before slumping on the
"Chalo teekhai, tum iss side so jao mai—" he began before she cut him.
"Oye hello Mr. Khurana, yeh pura bed meri hai. Aap jayiye bahar," she said.
"Geet, bacchon jaise behave mat karo. Chalo tai karo ki you want to
stay with me or outside," he said
crossing his arms on his chest.
"Main bacchon jaise behave kar rahi hoon ya aap?" she questioned looking peeved. "Arre yeh bhi koi karta hai kya?" she
asked almost to herself.
"Haan main karta hoon, problem hai toh jao yahaan se," he said dumping his quilt and walking to
his closet to find his night clothes.
"Jayenge toh aap," she
"Ha! In your dreams," he
mocked with a lop-sided smile. He was rummaging through his closet when he felt
something soft hit his head. He turned to see Geet had thrown his pillow and
quilt. "Geet!" he screamed stomping
to stand beside her, his tall form towering her.
For a second Geet
stood intimidated by his tall figure but quickly regained her posture. "Stop shouting," she said shutting her
"Toh chali jao na, you won't hear me shouting," he finished angrily.
"Mr. Maan Singh Khurana," she
said snapping her finger and pointing her index finger at him. "Aap sharafat se jayiye, varna," she
"Varna kya? Daadima ko bulaogi?" he smirked. "Bulao, main bhi
deekhoonga," he challenged.
"Ugh!" she responded
miffed at his stubborn denial. "Main
nahi jaanewali," she announced once again plopping on the center of the bed
and spreading her arms and legs.
"Geet!" he shouted seeing
her occupy his whole bed. He walked to bed to see a serene smile on her face as
she lay on the bed with her arms and legs spread out and with her eyes closed.
A small smile spread across his lips seeing her satisfied look, his mind
absorbing her serene beauty. He stood lost in her innocent expression, adoring
"Maan please do you mind covering me with that quilt," she spoke, her eyes closed, breaking his
trance. He shook himself off his daydream and soon was irked by the fact that had
just ordered him to help her put her to bed. He caught her arm and jerked her
Geet was shocked by
Maan's sudden action and looked startled as he pulled her off the bed before
turning her around so that he stood with his back to the bed. He let go of her
hand before falling on the bed himself. "You,"
she began to curse and caught his arm with both her hands and pulled him with
all her might, jerking him off the bed. His eyes flew open, shocked that she
had just pulled him off. He decided she would not go unless he tried something
extreme. An idea popped in his mind and he stepped back a few steps, smirking
at his own idea.
"Chalo, teekhai, soch lo Geet," he prompted.
Geet sat on the bed,
her hand stretched to support her upper body while she carelessly replied, "haan maine soch li."
Maan pulled open a
button off his sherwani and smiled smugly at her, waiting for her response. He
saw her become alert and he continued to pop open the next button, smirking
"Yeh, yeh aap kya kar rahe ho?" she asked nervously.
"Jo mujhe pehle se karna tha," he offered, winking and pulling off another button, revealing his
"Just stop right there,"
she managed to blurt getting off the bed.
"Oh my little innocent sweetheart, let me tell you, Maan Singh Khurana
doesn't leave a job unfinished,"
he said taking a small step forward.
"Maan please," she said,
unconsciously taking a step back.
Maan inched forward,
closing in the distance between Geet and him, smirking all the way down. She
involuntarily stepped back at his each step forward. He knew she wouldn't last
long, for she was too reserved type. He opened the last button of his sherwani
and removed it before throwing it across the room in one swift motion. She
inhaled sharply before averting her gaze away from his Grecian body and closing
her eyes with her palm.
"Maan!" she screamed, her
voice muffled because of her palms.
Maan closed the
distance, cornering Geet to a nearby wall. He placed his hands on either side
of her, encaging her. She still had her eyes closed but her body stiffened
sensing his nearness. He stared at her angelic form, forgetting his surrounding
environment. He slowly pulled her hand, hiding her beautiful face, wanting to
absorb her form. He saw her eyes closed and bent near her ears, "Geet," he called huskily, making her
shiver in response. She slowly opened her eyes to see a pair of deep chestnut
brown eyes staring intently at her. She was lost in those deep pools of
chocolate reflecting warmth and affection to the person drowning in them.
Moments seemed to
freeze for the both of them as they stood facing each other. Maan was swimming
in the depths of her beautiful pair of hazelnut irises. The golden specks in
her eyes glowed beautifully due to the reflection of the candle in the room
enhancing her already captivating eyes. A slight breeze in the nearby window
brought a curly tendril from her tresses, obstructing the view of her flawless
face. He lifted his long fingers to softly tuck the lock of behind her ear. His
brief touch sent a tremor through her body causing her to close her eyes. He
bent forward to kiss her forehead and looked back to see her reaction. Seeing
her eyes still closed he proceeded to kiss her eyes. Her breath hitched at the
contact of his lips to her skin while her chest rose and fell rapidly. She
tried hard to keep herself from melting in his kiss yet his lingering lips made
her want to feel them against hers. He controlled his urge to take her lips and
stepped back to see her reaction to his touch.
Geet's eyes flung open
at the sudden contact of cold air brush through her skin. She looked at Maan
with a thousand questions reflecting in her eyes. "Voh," she tried to say but only a bout of air escaped her lips. He
cocked his eyebrows in question, trying to understand what she was about to
say. She cleared her throat and began, "Voh
mujhe jaana hai," she managed to whisper in spite of her erratically
beating heart. And before he could respond she ducked below his arm and escaped
from his clutches. She clutched her heart to bring her speeding heart under
control before rushing to the bed to pick up a pillow and quilt for herself.
"Nahi, tum yaheen ruko, main jaavunga," he announced and went to take the pillow from her. Somewhere in the
corner of his heart he felt a painful tug as she avoided his gaze and looked
out of the window but he soon let go and walked out of the room, making sure
nobody was in the hallway to stop and question him.
Geet stood for a few
moments trying to register the things that happened a few minutes ago. His soft
swipe of his finger on her skin sent a thousand sparks through her and she
tightly clutched her lehnga preventing her from trying to feel his well-toned
arms. And then when she felt his lips on her cold skin, her heart screamed to
feel his kiss everywhere on her. She didn't understand the unknown feeling of
wanting that crept through her when he began to kiss her. Her lips itched to
feel his and she would have almost given into it if not for his pause. She bit
her lips and looked away feeling guilty as those sensual thoughts ran across
her mind. She gathered enough strength to walk back to the bathroom and changed
into her comfortable nightwear before mechanically climbing into the bed. She
curled into a ball and tightly closed her eyes wanting sleep to engulf her. She
tossed on the bed hoping to fall asleep but sleep seemed to have evaded her.
Time seemed to pass
slowly and she felt the cold air from the air conditioner, make the room much
colder than normal. She shivered a bit before trying to curl into a fetal
position. Nothing seemed to generate enough heat to help her sleep so she got
up to see if she could adjust the settings. But luck was not on her side; she couldn't
find the remote. The room seemed to become colder by the second. She got off
the bed, frustrated by the proceedings. She pulled the quilt over her head and
covered herself from head to toe, only her face in sight. She tiptoed out of
the room to see where he had headed off to sleep. She reached to the nearby
room and peeped into to see him sleep on the bed with his back facing her. Her
curiosity pulled her into the room further and she found the room nice and
warm. A thought crossed her mind but she quickly shook it off not wanting to
risk her own behavior. Yet the thought of spending the night in the cold room
allowed her to reconsider her initial thought. She looked around the room to
see if there was any other piece of furniture she could use to sleep.
Unfortunately the guestroom was adorned with only a single bed with a table in
the corner of the room. She cursed her luck and walked to see the bed large
enough to accommodate the both of them. Her mind rationalized to go back to the
room in spite of the biting cold yet her heart convinced her to stay in the
warmth of this room. She promised herself to wake-up before him while slowly
sitting on the bed not wanting to disturb him.
Just as Maan was about
to fall asleep he heard the door slightly creek open. His body tensed at the
thought that someone might find him in the guestroom and question his presence.
He kept a stiff position hoping the person would soon go away but the person
seemed to move about in the room. He opened his eyes slightly to catch a
glimpse of the veiled figure. To his surprise it was Geet covered in her
comforter looking as though she was in deep thought. He instinctively closed
his eyes when he felt her eyes on him, to give her the expression he was in
deep slumber. Few seconds later he felt the bed give in and felt her crawl up
to his opposite side before settling comfortably, making sure she didn't make
any noise. He wondered what made her come to sleep in this room for she had
insisted to sleep separately. Whatever the reason was could wait until morning
for he didn't want to miss the chance of sleeping close to her. Thus he pretended
to be in deep slumber to keep her from running back to her room.
Before the end of next minute a soft and rhythmic breathing
from the other end of the bed showed that Geet had indeed instantly fallen
asleep. Maan slowly opened his eyes, making sure she had indeed fallen asleep.
A slow smile crept on his lips as he saw her flawless form just a mere few
inches away from him. Although he would do anything to have her in his arms, he
was satisfied with the fact that she was within a hand span distance away from
him. He was observing her without a blink of an eye for what seemed like
eternity when he suddenly felt her move. He quickly closed his eyes but found
her restlessly moving closer, mumbling something in her sleep while removing
her comforter away from her. Next second he found her reach for him and
snuggled closer to his cocooning warmth. He was startled at her sudden move but
his insides burst forth in happiness feeling her snuggling warmly against his
hard form. Having her close to his heart he hugged her closer to him and
covered her properly in his quilt. A satisfied smile played on both their lips
while he slowly drifted off to sleep while she continued her blissful slumber.
