Happy Diwali to all my readers 🕯
“I think you guys forgot to close the door.” Manan were startled listening Cabir’s voice. They stared into each other eyes shockingly. They were not understanding what they should do now. They never wanted this truth to come out like this in front of them. But what they could do in front of god’s wish. It was god’s plan to bring the truth of their relationship in front them like this only.
Manik was fearing to look behind and it was clearly visible in his eyes. Nandini held his hand and blinked her eyes to assure him that everything will be fine. At this moment, she wanted to become his strength, not his weakness.
He sighed deeply before getting up from the bed and revealing Nandini’s face in front of them. Mukti and Cabir’s eyes got widened seeing Nandini on Manik’s bed and that too in his shirt. They were completely shocked. They never thought that Nandini would be cheating Shivansh and that too with Manik who was her husband’s best friend. It was unbelievable for them. They were beyond shocked.
Nandini’s eyes were looking down in a shame, She didn’t have courage to look into their eyes. Her hands which were in the blanket, they were playing with each other nervously. Manik was still standing facing his back to them. He was gathering courage to face their anger and disgusting looks.
They both walked inside.
“What the hell is this , Manik ?” Cabir yelled turning Manik toward himself grabbing his arm. Mukti was looking at Nandini disgustingly while Nandini’s eyes were at Manik and Cabir.
“Cabir , I can explain , listen to me..”Manik spoke after gathering some courage. Cabir was boiling in anger and his eyes were spitting fire.
“What I should listen ? The truth of your betrayal is in front of our eyes. Now What you will explain to us ?” Cabir grabbed his collars and shouted cutting his words. Manik was taken aback.
“I just can’t believe that you were betraying Shivansh for her.” Cabir spoke looking at Nandini disgustingly. As Cabir looked at Nandini, she instantly bowed down her head in shame.
“Didn’t you think about Shivansh even for once? He was there for you every time when you needed him and what you did ? Why Manik ? Why?” He asked looking at Manik for answer.
Cabir was having no clue , how much Manik had suffered by putting his friendship above everything every time. He had always thought about Shivansh but this was the first he was thinking about his love , Nandini because he couldn’t see her in pain.
He was standing closing his eyes and clenching his fist. He was controlling his emotions.
“Because I love Nandini.” Manik opened his eyes and gave the answer of his question that why he had done this. Nandini closed her eyes and few tears rolled from her eyes. It was a emotional moment for her because the love which he was fearing to accept in front of himself, today he accepted that love in front of his friends. It was really a big thing for her.
“And what about Shivansh? Did you forget about him ? When did you become so selfish Manik ? When..?” Cabir asked unbelievably.
“Cabir , You can’t only blame Manik. The fault of this girl , who had been pretending to be a perfect wife since one year and sleeping with his best friend.” Mukti shouted cutting Cabir’s words. She was taking out her all anger on Nandini. Manik got angry listening her words.
Nandini cried shutting her eyes. She wasn’t ready for all this but somewhere she was knowing that she has to go through all this. The whole society will blame their love . This was just the beginning , their love has to pass many more difficulties.
“Mukti please , don’t take her in between all this. You want to shout me , go ahead but please don’t say anything to her.” Mukti and Cabir were shocked seeing his love for Nandini. He was ready to hear anything but he couldn’t hear a single word against Nandini.
Nandini was just crying silently looking down. She wanted to support Manik but she was having no courage. She herself was blaming their love. Their words were affecting her and breaking her heart. She never wanted this to happen.
“Oh my god.. What a magic you have done on our Manik , Nandini ?” Mukti sat down in front of Nandini and asked grabbing her arm. Nandini looked at Mukti with her moist eyes.
“Now why are you crying Nandini ? What you wanted to do , you have done. Now why these fake tears ? I don’t know , why god makes the girls like you who have an eye on every man and who can never be loyal.. “Mukti was pressing her arms tightly in anger. Mukti’s words were increasing Manik’s anger.
“Mukti , it’s enough.” Manik lost his temper and shouted walking toward Mukti. She stared at Manik angrily.
“What’s enough, Manik ? What wrong did she say ?” Cabir roared angrily after turning Manik toward himself.
“Come out of her spell Manik and look at the reality , think about Shivansh. This love will take you nowhere. It will snatch everything from you. There is still time , Manik. Please mend your ways.”
“Leave it , Cabir. He won’t understand us now.” Mukti left Nandini arm and spoke getting up from bed.
“ The day , this girl will leave him for another man, then only he will understand us.” Mukti’s words were piercing Manan’s heart. Nandini pursed her lips and closed her eyes tightly to control her emotions after listening her words.
“Manik , are you blind ? Can’t you see that she cheated her husband for you and in future she can even cheat you for another man. Try to understand Manik , We are your friend and we still want your happiness. She is snatching you from all us.” Cabir tried to explain him for the last time. Manik was staring Cabir angrily.
“Cabir , You don’t know anything so stop blaming her please. She is not that type of girl.” Manik again shouted losing his temper. It was really hurting him to see how his friends were blaming Nandini. They were making his star cry and making her weak. Nandini had just come out of trauma and he had gathered her very difficultly but they were again making her star weak. He couldn’t bear this.
“You were saying right , Mukti. We should leave now. He is not going come to come out of her spell easily. In fact , he doesn’t need us in his life anymore.” Mukti and Cabir left after last time staring at them angrily.
Manik didn’t stop them because he knew , they will not understand him now because they were in a shock. But he would make them understand after telling the truth to Shivansh. Manik looked toward his star who was crying silently looking down. He felt a sharp in his heart seeing her condition. He couldn’t see tears in her eyes anymore. He wanted to see his star shining always.
“Manik , please leave me. We are not meant to be together.” She looked at Manik and said while crying.
