After Manik was done pummeling Pandit and 'Feb4' and the Police arrived ... and the Pandit-roopi pile of Cretin was taken away, Manik was able to finally turn his attention to Nandini. And his ... cautious , hesitant approach ... gingerly asking Nandini if Pandit had done anything to her. All that ... I understand. Given the situation. It was something expected. And Nandini all in Zombie mode. And Manik just wrapping her in his arms, and tiny her, just disappearing somewhere in his arms, hiding in their refuge. That too. Expected all that.^^^ Rafz, that scene, gosh, I am at loss of adjectives today. His priorities were all set. He saw Nandini and he reached out to her, to untie her and the moment Pandit tried to take him away he got reminded of why she was there in the first place. And boy, he was filled with murderous rage and wouldn't stop at anything. And one look, ONE LOOK at Nandini and Pandit was long forgotten and only she mattered. Her safety, her well being mattered.
But what broke my heart into a million pieces and yet, in a way made me SO very happy was the way Nandini reciprocated by feebly reaching out and holding onto Manik.
^^^Same Rafz, same. My heart broke into fragments seeing Nandini taking refuge in his arms. She was still dead inside, still numb inside but his were the arms that provided her the much needed wall between her and the world. And her hold on him, HER HOLD on him was so light, so weak, just like her light.
Given what she has gone through, one would very well expect her to disintegrate, and just ... want to fade away. To go into an absolute pitch black fugue and hide from the world and the horrific reality of the events that just transpired. But, like I said the other day, its amazing how these two kids find their anchor in each other, even in their worst moments. Had Manik not been there's Nandini probably would have receded into a shell that would incarcerate her forever in a darkness so detached from reality and hope that the pocketful of sunshine that we know Nandini to be, would forever be lost. But despite everything, BECAUSE Manik was there, she managed to not lose her grasp on reality. Because she trusts him to make it all ok, eventually. Because she knows when nightfall descends and she loses her way in the pitch black of it all, stuck in a maze of smokes and mirrors that only mock her helplessness , Manik would somehow still manage to get her out. The TRUST issues that had Manik troubled for SO long ? If only Manik was in his right mind today, he would have seen that is HOW much Nandini trusted him. Trust him enough to hope to be able to come of this, holding onto his hand. As much as Nandini's resilience comes out of her inner strength as a person who has weathered many a storms at such tender age and still managed to hold it all together, it also comes from her immense trust in Manik and their ability to survive any ordeal, together, come hell or highwater.The whole para is just but that line in Bold and Italic took the cake Rafz. Why so amazing you
I can go on and on gushing but gotta get my priorities set right now
