“Is Muskan sleeping, Mom ?” As Neyonika opened the door , Zoya asked about Muskan , entering in the room and her eyes were searching her in the room. She walked inside and found Raj sleeping on the bed and Muskan was no where in the room.
“Where is Muskan , Mom?” Zoya asked turning toward Neyonika who was looking at her confusingly.
“I don’t know.” Neyonika answered , making Zoya hell worried and shocked. She was feeling like something wrong had happened with her daughter. She could feel it.
“Mom , Adi left Muskan here.. one hour ago. She.. she wanted to spend time with you and dad. Then where she is ?” Zoya asked worriedly while her heart was beating rapidly. She was just praying for her daughter’s safety constantly.
“But Zoya , Adi didn’t come here.” As Neyonika said this , she ran out of the room to ask this from Adi. Her heart was becoming heavy, thinking about her daughter. Neyonika called her but she didn’t stop.
“Where is Muskan , Adi ? Where you left her ?” Zoya walked inside the room while shouting. Adi who was sitting on the bed , got up , looking at Zoya shockingly.
“Where is Muskan.. ? She is not with mom and dad.” She asked angrily , holding the collars of his shirt. Adi got horrified, seeing Zoya’s condition.
“I.. I left her with Mom and..” he stopped in the middle when he realised something. Zoya was looking at him without blinking her eyes and waiting for his reply.
“I left her outside of the room because my phone had started ringing. But Zoya she walked inside the room , waving her hand in front of my eyes. Then.. where…” Adi was not understanding what to say at that moment. Words weren’t coming out of his mouth. He was regretting for his mistake.
“Where she went Adi ? I am not understanding anything?” She said in crying tone and her hands moved downward, leaving his shirt collars. Tears brimmed her eyes.
“It’s my fault. What I did ? I should have left her with mom and dad inside the room. Where she will be ?” Adi said , holding his head with his both hands. He was feeling like to kill himself for being so careless.
“Adi , it’s not the right time to regret. We have to find our daughter. She needs us ,Adi.. ” She
spoke , cubbing his face and few tears rolled down from her eyes. He was looking down , having guilt in his eyes. She herself wasn’t in a state to say or to do something but still she tried to give strength to her husband.
“You are right Zoya. We need to find our princess. First we need to check her in others room. I just really hope that she is fine or else I will never able to forgive myself.” He said and few tears dropped down from his eyes too. Zoya controlled her cries , pressing her lips together and more tears rolled down from her eyes.
Then they went to check Muskan in everybody’s room. He went to check right side rooms and she went to check left side rooms. Adi met with Raj and Neyonika in corridors and told them about Muskan. They were shocked and they started finding Muskan with him. Raj immediately called up the manger of the hotel and asked him do a announcement for the Muskan. On the other hand Zoya checked Manik’s room but nobody was there because Manik was in Nandini’s room. Nobody knew that Nandini was also missing from the hotel.
“Muskan..” Zoya walked inside Nandini’s room , shouting for her daughter. She was breathing heavily and sweating also. Manik who was constantly trying call Nandini , he looked at Zoya confusingly.
“Manik.. did you see Muskan ?” Zoya walked toward him asked about Muskan. She was breathing heavily and tears were constantly falling down from her eyes. Manik was shocked , seeing her condition.
“Bhabhi.. relax. First sit here and calm down.” Manik said , holding Zoya’s shoulder and tried to make her sit down on bed but she shouted , jerking his hands away from her.”My daughter is missing, Manik and you are asking me to calm down. She is only four years old. I am having no clue that where she.. she is.” Her voice choked up when she said last line.
“Bhabhi.. Nandini is also missing. Her phone is coming switched off.” Manik said again holding her shoulders. Zoya looked toward Manik shockingly , knowing that Nandini was also missing.
“May be Muskan is with Nandini. Don’t worry bhabhi , she will be fine.” Manik said and Zoya felt little relief, listening Manik’s word.
“How could Nandini take Muskan with her without informing anybody ?” Zoya said disbelievingly while Manik went to bring water for her from table which was kept in the room.
When he was about to pick up the transparent jug from the table , his eyes fell on the white folded paper which was kept underneath the jug. He picked up that note and unfolded it , looking at it suspiciously. Something was written on it with blank pen. He started reading it and he became blank. The paper slipped down from his hands and he was looking straight. Zoya was looking at Manik confusingly. She picked up the note and bursted into tears, reading the note. The note slipped down from her hand and She started crying, covering her mouth with her both one hands.
Flashback (one hour ago)
Nandini woke up , having a beautiful smile on her face. Her face was glowing with happiness. She never thought that one day she would be so happy again after that incident. She was thankful to Manik. He was changing her for good. He was bringing her happiness back. She smiled , looking at her hands on which both of their picture was drawn with henna.
“We look so perfect together in Mehendi also.” She spoke , joining her both hands together. Then she blushed and covered her face with her both hands.
” I need to get rid of this fast.” She said frustratedly , getting up from the bed , struggling with her heavy lengha. Her phone beeped up which was kept on the side table of bed. She picked up the phone from the table ,having smile on her face because she was expecting Manik’s message. But next moment she frowned, seeing the sender id. She was about to throw the phone one bed when she received the call from that person also. She picked up the phone , gritting her teeth.
“How dare you call me again Aman ? Do you want to be get killed by my in laws?” Nandini shouted on Aman. From other side she heard the evil laugh of him which rose her anger more.
“Baby.. nobody can harm me because their apple of eyes , Muskan is with me. I kidnapped her. Just check the message which I sent you.” Aman said and laughed loudly. The floor slipped down underneath her feet, listening his words. She became numb. She immediately opened the message and tears started falling down from her eyes automatically , seeing Muskan’s photo. Her hands and legs were tied with the chair. Her mouth was also tied up with a white cloth to suppress her screams and her eyes were filled with tears.
“Why.. why you kidnapped her ? Wha.. what do you want ?” She stammered and asked after a few seconds. Her heart beat became fast. Muskan was in danger because of her. She started feeling guilty.
“You.. I want you baby. Don’t you know how much I love you ? I told you that I would never let you marry anybody else. I was planning to do this from so many days. What you thought.. that I got scared from your in laws.” He chuckled evilly , saying this. Nandini was blank , she wasn’t understanding what she should do. Tears were continuously falling down from her eyes.
“Aman I will do whatever you will ask me do. But please leave Muskan. Don’t involve her in this. I beg you please leave her.” She cried badly, saying this. Muskan’s condition was coming in front of her eyes again and again. She was getting weak , thinking about her.
“Baby.. I just want to see you , warming up my bed.”she became horrified when Aman said those disgusting words. She wanted shout on him but because of Muskan she was quiet.
“Don’t worry first we will get marry today and then only we will spend our first night. After that we will move to some other place and I will leave Muskan. Don’t delay. I am sending you the address and come fast there. If you want to keep Muskan safe then don’t dare to tell anybody about this.”Aman warned her and cut the call. Nandini was just crying , holding the phone tightly because she was having no other option except going to him. She slumped on the floor, crying in extreme pain. She was cursing her fate. Every time when she tried to move on her in life , god always made her remember that she doesn’t deserve happiness.
“I have to save Muskan. She.. she is in danger because of me. I will do anything for her.” She got up , saying this and wiped off her tears with her both hands. She tried to be strong. The pain and suffering made her strong.
“I just only want one promise from you that you will never hide anything from me. Bat chayai kitni bhi badhi ho yah choti ho , you will come to me and share with me.” She was just about to stepped out from the room but took her steps backward when Manik’s words echoed in her ear.
“I can’t put Muskan’s life at risk by telling Manik about this. What I should to do ?” She thought, putting hand on her forehead and shutting her eyes tightly. Then a idea came in her mind. She immediately took a pen and small diary from her hand bag and started writing a message for Manik , sitting on sofa which was kept in her room.
“Manik I am sorry. I am leaving without informing you. Muskan’s life is in danger because of me. Aman kidnapped Muskan because he wanted me. Aman is crazy , he can do anything with Muskan. He wanted to marry me and I will do anything to save Muskan. I just want you to tell you this because I want you to save Muskan because he can do anything with her. Please save her Manik or else I will never able to forgive myself.” She wrote the note, having tears in her eyes and at the end she wrote the address where Aman had called her. She wanted to tell him a lot of things but she was not having time. She had to save Muskan. The guilt was killing her. She was feeling like she is a bad luck for everybody’s life.
“Adi please do something. Muskan’s life is danger. Our daughter life is in danger. What we will do if something happened to her. Adi.. our princess..” Zoya was crying badly, resting her head on Adi’s chest. While Adi was in a state of shock after reading the note. He was blaming himself for being such a careless father because he had left her daughter alone. He was blank and not understanding what he should do. His heart was breaking inside , thinking about the condition of his little princess. He failed as a father , he couldn’t able to protect his princess.
Everybody were in a state of shock. Nobody had thought that the happy days would be changed into bad days like this. It was like a nightmare for Malhotra’s family. The life of two member of their family was in danger. Neyonika was crying , sitting on bed. Sanaya and Navya were trying to console her. Raj was contacting to Police of that state. Nandini’s father was devastated , knowing all this.
“I am going. I have to save Muskan and Nandini. I won’t let anything happen to them at any cost. Uncle your daughter is my responsibility, I won’t let anything wrong happen to her. I won’t..” Manik said having determination in his eyes , looking at Ram and everybody looked at him.
“You are right Manik. We will save both of them. I have to save my daughter at any cost.” Adi said , looking at Manik and fresh tears role down from his eyes , thinking about the condition of her daughter. Adiya looked at each other , having extreme pain in their eyes. Adiya’s heart was getting heavy, thinking about their daughter condition.
“I will also come with you. I can’t sit here. I want to save my daughter.” Zoya cried in agony after saying this , looking at Adi. He took her in his arms.
“Adi our princess.. please save her.” Zoya screamed in pain in Adi’s arms. Adi was also crying , hugging her tightly.
Somebody was overhearing their talks, standing outside of the room. He called somebody and told everything about what was happening there.
On the other hand Nandini got ready , wearing red bridal lengha. She was sitting on bed in a room and tears were falling down from her eyes continuously. She never thought that things would be get changed like this. She would be forced to marry Aman. Almighty was not showing any mercy on the her. Whenever she tried to be happy and move on in her life. She only got pain. She got tired of fighting, she got tired of bearing pain. But Almighty was not getting tired of giving the pain to poor soul.
Aman walked inside the room angrily. Nandini screamed in pain when he made her stood up , holding her hair tightly. Clenching her jaw from his other hand , he yelled ” You came here after writing a note and gave them address of here.
Don’t you want to see Muskan alive ?”He dug his nails in her jaw and yanked her hair , making her scream in pain again.
“Did you get scared ?” She asked , having a small smile on her face. Her heart felt little better , seeing him in a fear of getting catch. Next moment Aman raised his hand and it landed on Nandini’s cheek. She fell down on the floor and her forehead got hit with the table. Blood started oozing out from her wound.
“I am not scared baby. I am angry because you are not listening to me.” He sat down beside her and said , pulling her hair.
“Let him come here. Because he won’t be able to stop me from marrying you because Muskan is not here. It will be more fun to marry you in front of that Manik Malhotra. When I will make you mine in front in front of his eyes.. that will be more amazing.” He said , having smirk on his face while Nandini was giving disgusting looks. Inside her heart , she knew that Manik would make everything fine.
