A tall man stepped inside the mansion where the party was going on. He was well dressed up in white shirt with black blazer and black trouser. His eyes were shining with happiness and the smile was not leaving his face because after two long years he was going to meet his friends. He missed them a lot. The party which was going on , it was his welcome party. The happiness was clearly visible on his face. Happiness of meeting his family. Yes his friends were his family. He is Manik Malhotra. He is handsome and smart , very calm in nature. He is amiable , polite. He cares about others and likes to help them.
He was standing on the doorstep and his eyes were searching his friends in the party. But his eyes stopped on a girl , whose back was visible to him. He felt something in his heart when he saw her. He didn’t understand that what was it.
“Manik..” A man shouted and hugged him tightly bringing him back on the earth. He got shocked for a moment with sudden hug but then realising that the person who had hugged him , he hugged him back , having a content smile on his face.
“How are you Manik ? You know , how much we missed you in these two years. I am so happy.” The man said happily after breaking the hug. Manik was just looking at him having smile on his face. Manik was so happy to see his friend Shivansh Oberoi after long two years. He was still same for Manik.
Shivansh Oberoi’s Manik’s best friend. They used to share everything with each other from small to big. Shivansh was charming and sweet man like Manik. Shivansh and Manik personality were same. There was just a height difference between them. Shivansh was not tall as Manik. They met in school and became best friends. They could do anything for each other. They never got jealous of each other. They used to say ‘jo tera hai voh mera hai aur jo mera hai voh tera..”
Shivansh is the owner of Oberoi’s company. His parents lives in U.S.A. and handling the business there and he is handling the business in India.
Manik also used to handle his business in India. Two years back , his father called up and said that he needed his help there because he was unwell. For two years Manik handled the abroad business.Now his father was completely fine and he again came back to India and he was happy to come back. It was not easy for him to leave his friends behind and shifting from India to America. But he was having no other option. His father needed him.
“I am seeing , Is my Shivansh is still same or get changed after marriage? Because shaddhi ke badh toh sabh badal jate hai.” Manik said looking at him from head to toe. Shivansh was smiling , looking at him.
“So what do you thing , I get changed or not ?” He asked raising his eyebrows and crossing his arms around his chest.
“Change ka toh abhi pata nhi but you have become more handsome.” Manik said holding him from his shoulders.
“Not more than you.” Shivansh said and both chuckled.
“Now come , let’s make you meet my beloved wife.” He said and patted Manik’s back.
“Can’t wait to meet her. I desperately want to know that girl who made my friend crazy in love. Shivansh Oberio who used to hate girls.” Manik said excitedly while Shivansh grinned.
“I am damn serious Manik. Agar tu ushe mujhe phele mila hota na toh tu bhi ushke pyaar mein pagal ho jata. But now she is mine.” Shivansh joked and both laughed. Shivansh was taking him to meet Nandini. Manik didn’t understand why suddenly his heartbeat became fast.
“Nandini..” Shivansh said putting hand on a girl’s shoulder from behind. That girl turned around smiling broadly. She was in red colour saree , looking ravishing. Her big smile and her long black hair was increasing her beauty. Manik heart stopped beating for a moment when his eyes saw her angelic face. He felt like to keep staring her face.
Nandini is beautiful from inside and outside. She is courageous and fearless. She always thinks about other people when she does something. She is understanding women. She is helpful and kind in nature. She’s a little crazy. But in a fun way. She is cheerful and talkative. She has a heart of gold.
“Nandini.. meet my friend Manik Malhotra.” Shivansh introduced Manik to Nandini. Listening his voice , Manik came on the earth back. He wasn’t understanding that what was happening to him.
“And Manik meet my wife Mrs. Nandini Oberoi.” Shivansh said encircling his hand around her neck. Nandini smiled looking at Manik. He smiled back.
“Hello , Manik.” She said in her sweet like sugar voice forwarding her hand in front of Manik. He felt like a electricity ran down his spine when he held her hand to shake. He immediately took away his hand.
“You know Manik. From the day , I came here after marrying Shivansh. Not a single day passed when he didn’t talk about you. I was really excited to meet you and finally we met.” Nandini said happily and Manik just smiled , nodding his head.
“Shivansh where are others ? I want to meet them.” Manik asked from Shivansh and tried hard to ignore Nandini.
“Don’t know , where they are Manik. Few minutes ago they were with me.” Shivansh said while his eyes searched them in the hall.
“There.. they are. Busy talking to each other.” Nandini said pointing his hand toward the bar counter where they both were standing. Shivansh and Manik looked there. Manik smiled broadly seeing them. He started walking toward them.
“I just come sweetheart.” Shivansh left placing the kiss on Nandini’s cheek.
“Manik..” a girl and boy yelled up together seeing Manik who was standing in front them. He was looking at them , smiling broadly. The girl in black midi was Mukti Kapoor and the boy was Cabir Kapoor. Mukti and Cabir are twins but completely opposite to each other. Cabir is crazy , cheerful, hilarious and amusing. He always in good mood and his hobby is to tease others. Mukti is serious type person. Nobody can say that she is Cabir’s twin sister. They met Manik and Shivansh in school. People used to give examples of their friendship. Their bond was strong and unbreakable.
They both hugged Manik together encircling their arms around his neck. Manik hugged them back putting hand on their back. He was so happy to see them after two long years. Shivansh was standing few steps away from them and seeing them , having smile on his face.
“Guyz how are you both ? I missed you both a lot.” Manik exclaimed happily breaking the hug. They both were just smiling looking at him.
“I missed you too Manik.” she said , having happy tears in her eyes.
“So much..” she added , wiping her tears. Manik just took her in a hug.
“You know , in two years she has filled so many buckets with her tears. I am glad you came back or else her plan was to bring flood with her tears in Mumbai.” Cabir said playfully. Mukti glared him while Shivansh and Manik laughed.
“Shut up.. Cabir.” She yelled pointing her index finger toward him. Shivansh stood resting his elbow on Manik’s shoulder. Both passed the smile , looking at each other.
“Guyz.. stop fighting. I came back after two years and you guyz are fighting.” Manik shouted when Cabir had just opened his mouth to speak something. He closed his mouth , listening Manik’s words.
“So Manik tell us what you did there in two years ?” Mukti asked excitedly and they all looked toward him for answer.
“Work and work. I didn’t get time to do anything except work. Even I couldn’t able to come up to attend his wedding. I am sorry yaar..” Manik apologised from Shivansh.
“I can understand Manik. Don’t feel sorry. Now you came back. We are happy.” Shivansh said putting hand on Manik’s shoulder.
“I want to listen your love story in detail.” Manik winked and said. Shivansh chuckled.
“We are here to narrate his story. His story is short , simple and beautiful. Nandini is his parents friend’s daughter. Their parents arranged their meet and they met one year ago and he fell in love with her at first sight. Nandini took time but gradually she also fell in love with our Shivansh.” Cabir started telling the story. Shivansh was blushing listening his story. Manik was listening his story excitedly.
“I admired them a lot. Nandini is such a sweetheart Manik. She is very nice. She thinks about others before herself.” Mukti said while Shivansh eyes started finding love of his life in the crowd.
“I am so happy for you Bro. Finally you got what you deserved.” Manik said happily looking toward Shivansh. He smiled back in response.
“By the way Manik What’s your plan of getting marry ?” Shivansh asked raising his eyebrows.
“When I will find the girl of my choice , I will get marry.” Manik answered him with the smile. Then only he heard the sweet voice of Nandini.
“Guyz I am sorry but I have to take your friend away from you all for few minutes.” Nandini said coming there. Manik again couldn’t take his eyes off her.
“Specially sorry to you Manik.” She apologised looking at Manik.
“It’s okay.” Manik said blinking his eyes. She smiled in response. Manik felt like his heart stopped beating for a moment when she smiled looking at him.
“Nandini you don’t need say sorry. Shivansh is all yours. Ab voh humhra kha rha.. , Tumse shaddhi karne ke badh , voh paraaya hogya hai..” Cabir said dramatically. Cabir words brought Manik back on the earth. He stopped staring Nandini and looked toward Cabir.
“Thank you Cabir and stop being so dramatic every time.” Nandini said and again Manik eyes moved toward her beautiful face automatically. He was not getting that Why and What was happening to him. Then Nandini took Shivansh with her , holding his arm.
Cabir and Mukti were talking with Manik and he was busy staring Nandini who was making Shivansh meet somebody. He didn’t know but his heart was attracting toward Nandini unknowingly. He never felt like this for any others girl before.
“What is happening to me ? He is Shivansh’s wife. This is wrong.” Manik thought looking toward Mukti and Cabir.
“I need to leave.” He said suddenly looking at them. Mukti and Cabir gave him confused looks.
“Why ? What happened suddenly ?” Mukti asked confusingly while Manik was finding a reason because he needed to calm himself down. The girl was forbidden to him because she was his friends wife. He needed to stop the thing which was happening to him.
“I.. I have a urgent meeting.” He said and controlled himself from not looking at Nandini. Mukti and Cabir were giving him angry glares.
“What ? Just cancel the meeting right now. It is your welcome party Manik. This is wrong. We are meeting you after two years. Still you are thinking about work.” Mukti started complaining like a kid. Cabir was nodding his head , agreeing to her words.
“I won’t let you go anywhere.” She said holding his arms tightly. Manik looked toward Mukti, having guilt in his eyes then he looked toward Cabir for help.
“I am with Mukti today.” Cabir said putting his hand on Mukti’s shoulder. They passed the small smile to each other. For the first time Cabir was agreeing with Mukti’s words
“Okay fine. I am cancelling the meeting. ” He dropped the plan of leaving the party seeing their sad faces. They both hugged him tightly after jumping on him. Manik smiled hugging them back. Then his eyes fell on Shivansh and Nandini who were approaching toward them.
“I need to go washroom guyz. Can I ?” Manik asked from them and they both nodded their head in approval. Manik left from there before Nandini and Shivansh could reach there.
“Where he went ?” Shivansh asked from Mukti and Cabir , staring Manik who was going upstairs. Cabir told him that he went to washroom. Nandini was standing there silently , staring Manik.
Manik walked inside the washroom of a empty room. He started splashing water on his face continuously. Nandini face was not going away from his mind. He was going crazy. Before Nandini, no other girl had ever attracted him like this. He was shocked that what was happening to him. He was already feeling guilty because he was attracting toward his best friend’s wife.
“I need to control myself. This is wrong. I am not understanding why the hell she is attracting me so much that I even losing control on myself. But I have to control myself. I need to face her and accept her as my friend’s wife. Running is not the option. I need to face them , her..” He said to himself staring his reflection in the mirror. He was not aware that it was just the starting because his heart had already started to fall in love with the girl who was forbidden to him. Now nobody could stop his heart , not even he himself because running from love is impossible.
