“Manik , please leave me. We are not meant to be together.” She looked at Manik and said while crying. Manik’s heart broke down listening her words but he controlled his emotions. He walked toward her and sat down in front of her. She was crying looking down.
“ Look at me baby.” He pulled her chin upward by putting his index finger under his chin. She looked at him having pain her eyes.
“Really do you want me to leave you?” He asked after wiping her tears with his hands. She shook her head and he sighed relief closing her eyes.
“I just don’t want to snatch you from your friends. They would hate you because of me.” She sniffed and spoke looking at him. She shut her eyes dejectedly and fresh tears rolled down on her cheeks.
“You are not snatching me from anybody , star. They are shocked and whatever they said , they said in anger. They will understand me, Nandini. I will make them understand , don’t worry.” He cupped her face and with his thumbs , he was wiping her tears. He was consoling his star in best way. He himself was in pain but still he was standing strong for his star.
“No Manik , nobody will understand our love. Everybody will blame us.” She cried more removing away his hands from her face.
“There is still time. You should leave me..” Manik shushed her putting finger on her lips and glared at her.
“No , I will never leave you. I am ready to fight from this whole world for us and for our love.”he said in serious tone while cupping her face looking in her eyes.
“Nandini , why aren’t you seeing the positive side that we are together now? Everything has positive side and negative side but we should always look at the positive side to live happily. Don’t think negative , everybody will understand us.” Manik took her hand in his hands and tried to make her understand.
“If they won’t understand, then..?” She asked making him think for few seconds.
“I am sure , they will understand me , Nandini. They are my friends , they know me.” Manik took deep breath and then said.
“Didn’t you see their reaction? I am scared , Manik.” She cried looking at him.
“Nandini.. they were shocked and angry to see us together. Once they will calm down, I will explain them and they will understand me , trust me.” He assured her holding her face with his both hands.
“You know , this is just a phrase which will pass. In this phrase, only our love can keep us strong. Please never ask me to leave you. I am nothing without you, you are my everything. You are in my each and every breath. I am completely incomplete without you , Nandini. I just can’t live without you. You have completed me.” He rested his forehead on her and told her what she was for him. Nandini closed eyes and felt little better.
“I really love you ,Manik. Even I am also nothing without you. I can too fight from this world for us but I just don’t want that your friends to hate you because of me. But you are right , I should think positive.” She said after resting her head on his chest. Manik wrapped his hands around her and caressed her hair.
“I don’t know , when I became so weak and negative person.” She spoke after coming out of his arms after a minute only.
“You have gone through a lot. Any person will think negative if he will be at your place. Just wait for this phrase to be get passed and trust our love. Don’t think negative , think about our beautiful future. Trust me Nandini , I will make everything fine.” He kissed her forehead and she closed her eyes in response to feel touch of his lips.
“In all this , you are becoming my strength. I am sorry for always bothering you with my negative talks. I know , somewhere I am making you weak..” he frowned listening her words and cut her words in the middle.
“Who told you this ? Nandini , you are my strength in this time. I am ready to fight from the whole world for you. You don’t have any idea that how much your love has made me strong. I never want to lose you. I really love you a lot.” He took her in his arms and kissed her hair. She smiled slightly and felt so good to be in the arms of her love. She forgot everything after coming into his arms. It gave her peace to her soul and mind.
“I just can’t believe, Manik is doing this behind Shivansh’s back. At that moment also , he was only thinking about Nandini. I just can’t understand that why he is not thinking about Shivansh.” Cabir sat down on the sofa holding his head. He was really shocked , angry and also worried for Shivansh.
“Cabir, we know Manik. He is our best friend. You know , he has always think about Shivansh before himself. I think something is still hidden from us. We should talk to Manik.” Mukti said walking toward Cabir and he frowned seeing Mukti because after all this , she was still supporting Manik.
“Are you crazy , Mukti ? After all this , you are still supporting him. He has betrayed Shivansh. I just can’t believe you.” Cabir shook his head in disbelief and went to his room after getting up from sofa.
“Cabir , I don’t know , why I am still feeling like something is missing which we need to know and for that I have to talk to Manik.” Mukti thought and think to talk to Manik. She knew Manik , he could never hurt Shivansh intentionally.
At night , Nandini was lying in the arms of Manik. He was talking about his childhood, he was trying to distract her mind because she was depressed.
“You know , I was so golu molu (fat) in my childhood. Everybody used to pull my cheeks.”
“I know , I saw your photos. You were so damn cute. Even I want to pull your cheeks after going into the past.” She laughed and Manik was so relieved seeing her laughing.
“You can pull it now.” He said putting her hands on his cheeks. She pulled his cheeks, holding them with her index finger and thumb. He grinned.
“ I love you so much , always keep smiling like this.” Manik said suddenly kissing her nose. she stared at him and stopped laughing.
“I will always shine for you Manik because I know you will never let my shine go away from me. I know , whenever I will fall weak , you will help me in standing up and make me strong.” She said having full confidence on Manik. He just kissed her forehead in response and held her tightly in his arms. She snuggled in his arms having peaceful smile on her face.
“Manik , if Cabir and Mukti tell Shivansh about us then ? I want to tell him myself.” She asked suddenly looking at him after coming out of his arms.
“They won’t , don’t worry. Shivansh is coming after two days. We will tell him together.”Manik said putting his hand on her face. She was still looking at him worriedly. He blinked his eyes.
“Don’t worry , He will understand us. By the way he already knew that I am in love with the girl who is married and he has always said to me to accept my love. I know ,it will hurt him a lot , may be he will shout on me but at the end , he will understand me. I have full trust on our friendship.” He was really having full trust on Shivansh that he would understand but this time the matter was about his wife whom he loved so much.
