Manik and Nandini walked inside the press conference hall holding each other hand. Reporters were sitting on chairs and for manan , two chairs were kept on stage. A table was kept in front of their chairs, on which two mikes were kept. They went on the stage and settled down. Manik looked at Nandini worriedly, she blinked her eyes. They passed each other small smile then looked toward the reporters who were sitting holding pen and paper.
“So , what do you want to say about all this Manik Malhotra? Do you really have an affair with..” one of the reporter asked the question.
“No , it was a publicity stunt done by the producer of my upcoming album. He had done all this without my permission.” Manik said cutting the words of reporter and everybody write his answer on their paper.
“Mrs. Malhotra, what do you think about all this ?” Another reporter asked from Nandini. Manik held her hand which was kept on her lap and squeezed it lightly. She took a deep breath before saying something.
“I have full trust on my husband. It was producer’s mistake. He did this to make the song popular without Manik’s permission.” She gave the answer confidently. Manik was looking at her proudly.
“But he can even lie to you , how can you trust him so much ? After all he is a popular singer.” Nandini was sitting calmly , she didn’t lose her temper because she came here making herself ready for these type of questions before only.
“But I know he is loyal to me. He only loves me. He is popular and I am proud of him. I am not at all insecure because I trust him. I know many girls loves him and it doesn’t matter to me because I know , he only loves me.” Manik was looking at her having smile on his face. The girl who was not ready trust to him few months back and today she trusted him blindly. His happiness was having no bound. He finally won Nandini’s trust with his love.
Both smiled at each other and their hands were entwined with each other under the table. They were the strength of each other.
“I can’t beg from all the people to trust me. If they want to trust me , they can and if they want to trust that fake news , they can. It doesn’t matter to me. My wife”he looked at Nandini and she was smiling at him. Then he looked back toward the camera.
“my family trusts me , that’s enough for me.” All the reporters started clapping on Manik’s words. Manan looked at each other having smile on their face.
“Now I hope that you guys have got answers to all the questions.” Manik stood up from chair after saying this. Nandini also stood up after him. They started leaving.
“He married to middle class for handling this type of situations only. Why won’t she support her husband ? After all she is getting money from her husband. She is just a gold digger and she is keeping her mouth shut for the money.” Manan overheard the conversation of two people when they were walking out of the hall. Manik started boiling in anger after listening his words because he was talking so cheap about his angel and even he called her gold digger.
“How dare you..” Manik roared holding the collar of that person.
“Nobody has right to talk about my wife like this. She didn’t married to me for my money , she married to me because she loves me. You have no right to judge her by her status. It doesn’t matter, she is from middle class and having less money ? She is rich from her heart and loves me , only these things matter to me. Do you get that?” Manik was shouting on him angrily and now that person was looking down in shame.
“Answer me , do you get that ?” He asked again and this time more loudly when that person didn’t respond. He nodded his head looking at him. He got scared seeing Manik’s anger.
“Now apologise to my wife”Manik took him in front of Nandini holding his collar.
“Manik.. leave it. It’s okay…” she spoke putting hand on Manik’s shoulder and gently pressed it.
“No , it’s not okay Nandini. He has to apologise from you.” He spoke cutting her words. Then he looked toward that person angrily. His eyes were spitting fire.
“I am sorry , Mrs. Nandini Malhotra.” He apologised joining his both hands in front of Nandini. She just nodded her head.
“Shall we go now ?” She asked from Manik and he nodded his head at her after leaving his collar. He walked out of the hall holding her hand last time glaring at that person.
They were going back home from the car. The driver was driving the car and they were sitting at the car back seat. Manik was still sitting angrily and Nandini was trying to calm him down. She was sitting holding his biceps.
“It’s okay Manik. It doesn’t matter to me what people think about me.” She spoke rubbing his biceps to calm him down.
“Does he know you ?” He asked looking at her and she shook her head in response.
“Then how can he call you gold digger ? Nobody has right to judge you. I can’t tolerate this. I can’t listen any word against you , angel.” He spoke cubbing her face and it was clearly visible in his eyes that how much he loved her.
“Okay leave all this. I want to tell you something.” She said excitedly.
“What ?” He asked raising his eyebrows.
“I want to tell you that I love you so much.” She grinned after saying this making him smile broadly.
“I love you more angel.” He said and stroked her hair with his both hands lovingly.
“But I know you said this because you want to change the topic. Am I right ?” He asked raising his eyebrows. She closed her eyes and bit her tongue because he caught her. He chuckled and she smiled at him opening her eyes.
“You were sitting sad. I just wanted to change your mood because I can’t see you sad.” She told him everything like a innocent kid and he smiled at her.
“I really love you , angel and I am blessed to have you in my life. I have no fear until you are with you.” He whispered while shielding her in his strong arms from the whole world. She snuggled in his arms having smile on her face. She kissed his heart and enjoyed her favourite music which was his heartbeat.
Manan reached home and found Raj and Neyonika were waiting for them in the hall. They got up from Sofa seeing Manan.
“We are so impressed Nandini. You answered the questions of reporter so confidently. You always make me feel proud of my choice.” Raj praised Nandini while patting her hair. Neyonika stroke her face while smiling at her.
“Thank you dad.” She thanked him sweetly.
“Now you both go and take some rest. Then get ready for the reception.” Neyonika said and they walked from there nodding their head.
“I am so happy for Manik that he got the girl like Nandini. She will always keep my son happy.” Neyonika said to Raj having smile on her face.
“I understood at first sight only that this girl has made for my son.” Raj said looking at Manan when they were going upstairs. They both saw them until Manan walked inside their room.
“Mumma aap mujhe jaldi se tyaar kaldo. Aaj musu sabse phele tyaar hogi.(Mumma make me ready fast , today musu will get ready before anybody.)” Muskan said walking toward Zoya holding her doll in her hand. Zoya was sitting on the sofa and she was busy in her phone.
“Okay then let’s select your dress.” Zoya said excitedly getting up from sofa. She picked up Muskan in her arms and walked toward toward the dressing room.
Muskan was sitting on the stool in front of huge mirror wearing beautiful red frock. Zoya was combing her hair carefully and lovingly while she was playing with her doll which was in her hand.
“Mumma , daddy kab aenge ? Mujhe unhai apni dless dikhani hai. ( Mumma , When will daddy come ? I want to show him my dress.)”she stood up on the stool and asked looking at Zoya.
“Daddy is on the way. He will be reach here any moment.” Zoya said while putting the red colour pins on hair.
“Mumma mein kaisa lag rha ho ? ( Mumma , how I am looking?)” She asked excitedly from her mother and rolled hair on her tiny finger in attitude. She was looking super cute.
“You are looking so pretty my doll.” Zoya cupped her face and gently kissed her forehead.
“Nandini tell me , what are you going to wear at the reception party ?” He asked encircling his arms around her waist from behind when she was combing her hair standing in front of mirror.
“It’s a surprise Manik. When I will get ready then you will see yourself.” She said after turning toward him and he made a sad pout.
“Stop being so cute baby or else I will eat you.” Nandini warned him pulling his cheeks and chuckled.
“Then who is stopping you angel from eating me. I am all yours, go ahead and eat me.” He pulled her closer to himself grabbing her waist and whispered near to her lips. Their proximity started making her breath heavy and heartbeat fast. His hands were squeezing her waist.
“Manik , I.. I have to get ready. We are getting late.” She tried to push him away but he held her more tightly.
“But before that I want you to eat me angel.” He pulled her more closer to himself. Now their chest were pressing with each other and she could feel his hard membrane on her stomach over the fabric.
“Ahaa.. Manik. I think something went in my eye.” Nandini suddenly started yelling in pain covering her one eye with her hand.
Manik started laughing loudly after leaving her. Nandini looked at him confusingly still her hand was covering her one eye.
“You are really a bad actor, angel.” He spoke while laughing. She made a sad pout because he caught her lie.
“How do you catch my lie every time, Manik ?” She asked in sad tone.
“Because you can’t lie to me , Mrs. Malhotra.” He said rubbing his nose with her. She smiled at him cutely and he kissed her nose.
“Now take your clothes and leave the room. I have to get ready.” She spoke giving his clothes which were kept on bed.
“Are you throwing me out of my own room?”
“Yes , because now this is my room too.” She spoke holding her waist.
“Manik please.. I have to get ready. Please go..” she requested pushing him away when he again started coming close to her lips.
“Okay fine , I am leaving. But give a call as soon as you get ready.” She nodded her head on his words.
“I am excited to see my angel in that dress which is surprise for me. That’s why I am going without getting my kiss.” He kissed her cheeks and walked out. She was laughing on his words while closing the door.
