naina held mitali's hand and they immediately got involved in their never ending convos and went into the kitchen.
" they are like this only... you know soul sisters... " maan smiled and told maan.
while manvi was talking to maan, he couldnt help concentrate on whats is was saying. maan was occupied with his thoughts at that moment, he was feeling a little uncomfortable and wanted to escape from there.
" maan... maan tell aunty that i dont cook that bad... " saying this naina came and sat beside manvi and wrapped her arm around manvi's.
" yeah thats only maan can tell us... " said manvi.
" she cooks good enough not to put my house on fire... " maan commented.
" what...??? i hate you maan... " yelled naina.
" my mannu and nainu are together... im soo happy... " mitali sighed with happiness.
maan was listening to random things and incidences and memories all the ladies were talking about.
" ohh god i have to pick kasu... "
manvi suddenly realised on seeing the time and almost panicked.
" mannu rela- "
mitali was cut in by manvi " dont call me mannu mom... "
" lets go and pick my cupcake then... " naina suggested.
" if you dont mind, i can go and pick kasak... just tell me the name and address of the school... " maan interrupted in between.
" yeah thats great... maan can go and till then we can catch up... " naina squealed with happiness.
" and meanwhile im gone, you better catch up nain... i have some piece of work... we have to go... " maan sterly told naina.
" no ways... you can go... i can come back home or anyone will drop me... " naina said and gave maan i-m-done-with-the-convo look.
" i will text you maan... " manvi said as maan got up.
maan was driving towards kasak's school and smiled thinking of kasak and her cuteness. he has met her few times only but it is not wrong to say that he is fond of kasak, just like his wife is. he wondered what will junior naina be like... but on seconds thought, he realised kasak and naina were almost alike... kasak is really something and very close to what junior naina will be like. maan liked this thought very much and smiled widely.
" so i want to tell you... " manvi again started and naina interrupted her.
" what mannu...??? dont create suspense yaar... " naina sighed.
" you are not letting me complete nain... " manvi complained.
" okk... i will not say anything now... you say... "
" impregnant... " manvi said in one breath.
" what...??? "
" i... am... pregnant... " manvi said stressing on every word and taking gap between words.
" OMG... sachiii mannuuu... mannu mammmaaa... "
naina jumped with happiness and hugged manvi and kissed her cheeks.
" nain... i cant breathe... "
" oops... sorry... "
naina broke the hug and giggled on realising how tightly she was hugging manvi.'
" how far are you...???? and by the way congratzzz to be mumma... " naina said happily..
" it almost 11 weeks now... " manvi replied with a pure joy reflected on her face.
" 11 weeks and i get to know it now... not done... " naina made a face and crossed her arms against her chest.
" sorry na nainu... how could i have told you after what happened... ." manvi explained.
" i understand... whatever happened... ' naina felt uncomfortable
" things changed naina... things got worse... out of our hands... ' manvi sighed and her eyes were filled with tears.
naina looked at manvi and her eyes also became teary but naina controlled herself. while manvi seemed the stronger one, she wasnt actually... she is really sensative and naina... naina tried to look strong at times... she hated showing her weaknesses to anyone and just cried... just cried in front of mohit and now maan... infact maan doesnt let a single ter make its way to her eyes.
manvi told naina everything that happened after she left. mohit's breakdown, manvi being desperate to have a kid, her going through a treatment, the revealation of maya being accidently hit by manvi's car, virat doubting and accusing her, her taking a decision of growing up her baby alone, virat apologising, things getting back to what they were. manvi intentionally skipped telling naina what rishabh did and what he tried to to with her and virat, she doesnt want anything wrong between naina and rishabh. manvi knows what rishabh means to naina and he doing such things, will hurt naina first and then affecting anyone around.
" say something nain... " manvi shook naina a little.
" aa.. i... hmm.. " naina struggled with words.
" nain... "
" i should have been with you mannu... you wanted a friend and i was not there... "
naina hugged manvi and cried her heart out. manvi wiped her tears first and then soothed naina and breaking the hug, wiped naina's tears.
" you want to spoil your make up nain... " manvi remined naina.
" no... im fine... "
manvi giggled and naina with a smile composed herself wiping her tears and fixing her hair.
" i can see you are happy nain... and you being there with me at that time would have created problems between you and maan... ' manvi said to naina.
" problems...??? "
" mohit bhaiya still isnt over you... he still thinks he loves you... " manvi said with uncertainity and confusion in her voice. she dint know whether she was right or not in bringing up this topic.
" i know... "
naina replied and got up from the bed.
" you know means... nain look at me... " manvi asked naina.
" he is pestering me mannu... calls, messages, emails, and what not... " naina said and she was clearly pissed off.
" what are you going to do...??? " manvi asked out of curiousity..
" IGNORE... " naina replied while looking at her image in the mirror.
" what do you mean ignore huh...??? "
" he wants to meet me... but no ways i will go and see him... he has gone insane mannu... trust me... " naina said.
" insane... excuse me..."
" i think he needs a doctor... koi kisi se itna pyaar nahi karta mannu... he needs to go and get a life... "
" thats rude naina... " manvi told naina.
" he wants to spoil my life and im way too happy with maan mannu... i dont want to go back in time when i know he still has the power to affect me... "
naina turned around and faced manvi.
" naina... are you sure you dont love him, the way he loves you... " manvi asked unsure of what to understand.
" i just dont want him mannu... thats it... "
" here i come... "
naina and manvi turned around to look at the door. they smiled on seeing kasak standing with a smile on her face and soon maan and virat followed her.
" virat you here...??? " manvi asked on seeing virat.
:" maan met me at kasak's school... i went to pick her up... ' replied virat.
" ohhh i never knew you were going else i would have never troubled maan... " manvi sighed.
" you didnt trouble me manvi... trust me... " maan told manvi.
in the meanwhile kasak ran to naina and hugged her. naina and kasak were smiling at ecah other and when naina ruffled kasak's hair and kissed her cheek; kasak repeated her action. virat was the first one to look at this scene and he smiled. manvi and maan soon followed virat's gaze and they also couldnt help but smile.
" naina maiya main dikhayi nahi diya kya...??? " virat asked naina.
looking at naina, virat realised that she was trying to avoid the situations getting weird and awkward, so he himself started the conversation.
" nahi aisa nahi hai... hiii... ' naina hesitantly replied.
" lets start things a fresh... im sorry naina... ' virat said while moving towards naina.
kasak looked at virat and on seeing him taking steps towards naina, stopped him.
" nain meri hai dad... "
kasak said as soon as she climbed on the bed and stood with her hands on her hips.
" nahi nain maan ki hai... aur meri bhi... " virat replied to kasak and showed her his tongue.
kasak didnt seem to like this, so she ran to where manvi and maan were standing.
" nain aapki hai...??? " kasak asked maan and maan bent down on his knees.
" you mind sweetie... " maan sweetly asked kasak.
" nainu meri hai... " kasak pouted.
" okk done... rakho nainu ko... "
" thank you maan uncle... ' kasak smiled widely and hugged maan.
manvi went towards naina and virat.
" im sorry... " naina sniffed her nose.
" its okk... pagal ladki... " virat replied and opened his arms for naina.
but before naina could hug virat, manvi cleared her throat.
" main yahin hoon... door raho... " manvi said gritting her teeth.
" door hi toh hoon... " naina reasoned.
" good... "
virat giggled and said " chalo tum dono hug kar lo... much better... "
" good idea... " manvi exclaimed.
manvi and naina hugged each other and manvi mouthed a " thank you " to virat and he mouthed her " i love you ".
" food is ready bacha party... " mitali said standing on the doorstep and taking the sight of the scene in front of her eyes.
" what food nani...??? " kasak asked.
" your favourite honeybun... come... "
mitali took kasak with her while the four of them followed them.
they all had their lunch and enjoyed their time with each other and while leaving naina gave the gifts she brought for everyone and they all seemed to like it except kasak, who wanted more chocolates that maan gifted her last time.
