Nandini was sitting in front of mirror , getting ready for engagement. She was looking beautiful in red gown. Her long black hair were opened , curled from downward. Her outfit was simple and elegant like her. It was suiting her. But one thing was missing which was her smile. She was lost in deep thoughts. The words which Manik said in the temple , those words were ringing in her mind. Her fear of getting betrayed again was not leaving her. But she was happy about one thing that she was marrying in a loving family.
“If he want this only then I will make everything clear to him before engagement. I will tell everything clearly to him that what I feel about him. We are going to be husband wife and there should no secret remain between us. If he chose me then he have to accept me the way I am. He needs to understand that I am trying every second to move on. But it is difficult. I just don’t want that anybody should get hurt because of me. He is not understanding that by saying I love you. I don’t want to give him false hope for our future. If he wants then I will share everything with him.” She finally took the decision to share everything with him.
Nandini came on the earth back when Navya walked inside the room.
“”My bestie, you are looking so gorgeous.” She said , wrapping her hands around her neck from behind.
“Manik will surely go crazy after seeing you.” She said , coming in front of her. Nandini gave her just small smile in response.
“Oh Nandini. Why are you so tensed ? Today is your engagement with the rockstar Manik Malhotra. You should be happy. Thousand of girls are burning in jealously because you are marrying to their dream man.” She said dramatically.
“Including me..” she added and Nandini chuckled.
“Like seriously Nandini. I wanted to marry him but he chose you.” Navya said in sad tone. She was doing this drama of getting hurt just to cheer up Nandini’s mood.
“Navya , Only a idiot will marry you and if he will not crazy then you will make him crazy after marriage.” Nandini said to tease her. Navya glared him , putting hands on her waist.
“I think someone wants to be get beaten up by me at her engagement.” Navya said in fake anger tone and Nandini laughed.
On the other side , Manik also got ready in black coat suit with white shirt. He was looking killer. He was not at all upset in fact he was happy and excited. He was getting excited to see his angel. He couldn’t wait to hear those three magical words again from her mouth . Even he couldn’t wait to exchange the rings with her. He planned everything for tonight. He wanted to make this night special and memorable for his angel.
“I hope everything goes well today.” He thought , last time glancing himself in the mirror.
Zoya and Muskan wore same colour gown. Their gown was backless. They both were looking so pretty. Muskan was looking so cute. She twirling around Zoya happily. Adi was thinking that to whom he should admire. He was confused that who was looking more beautiful. Muskan asked her father to take their pictures . Adi clicked their few pictures and also he took few selfies also , picking Muskan in his arms. Muskan was super happy.
“Musu abhi aya sabko apni dless dikha kal ( I am coming after showing my dress to everyone.)” Muskan left the room saying this. Adi and Zoya were smiling seeing their princess happy.
“Muskan is really looking so pretty today. Haina Adi ?” Zoya asked , walking toward Adi. He pulled her toward himself, grasping her waist.
“And her mother is looking super hot today. I am feeling like to eat her lips , mess her hair , tear up her dress and caged her in this room under me.” He said , brushing her lower lip with his thumb. Zoya blushed , looking down.
“You are making me crazy jaan. It is really hard to control myself.” He said , pulling his chin upward with his thumb. She smiled cutely , looking at him.
“Waiting will make the things more excited Mr. Malhotra. Sabar ka fal meetha hota hai. (The fruit of patience is sweet)” Zoya said , putting her hand on his face. They were looking at each other , having so much love in their eyes.
Muskan walked inside Manik’s room to show her dress to her chachu.
“Chachu , Mein kesa lag laha hoon ?(how I am looking ?)” She asked excitedly walking toward Manik. Then She twirled cutely to show her dress. Manik was looking at her , having smile on his face. He sat on his knees in front of her.
“You are looking so beautiful and adorable that I am feeling like to eat you.” Manik said cubbing her face and hugged her tightly.
“Chachu , Mela hailstyle khalab ho jaega. (My hairstyle will be get spoiled)” She said cutely and tried to push Manik away with her tiny hands. Manik laughed , breaking the hug. Muskan was looking at him with angry pout.
“You are so cute.” Manik said , pulling her cheeks and she made cute faces. Then she ran from there , saying that she wanted to show her dress to others. Manik got up from floor , having smile on his face.
“In few minutes, your Rockstar Manik Malhotra will be reached here with his family and he will be get engaged, breaking million of hearts.” Outside the venue of engagement , the news reporter were standing and giving the live updates to the viewers about their rockstar engagement. The venue was fully secured. Media were standing outside of the front gate. News reporters were saying absolutely right that Millions of heart are going to be broken down with Manik’s marriage. There were thousands of girls who dreamed of marrying him but Manik chose only a one girl from all thousands of girls and that girl was Nandini.
Finally Malhotra family arrived there , the security guard sided the Media. The car went inside and got stopped in front of entrance. Hotel valet opened the car door and Manik stepped outside from the car in full attitude , opening the last two button of his coat. His mother came and caressed her hair lovingly. Manik smiled in response , looking at her. Neyonika was really happy because finally her beloved son got a perfect life partner. Manik then looked toward his father who was smiling , looking at him. His eyes were filled with love. Manik just hugged his father. He hugged him back. Everybody were happy with this engagement.
As they all walked inside , photographers started clicking their pictures. Muskan was in his father’s arms and she was giving the best poses for the photos. Zoya and Adi were smiling, looking at her. Adi kissed her cheeks and she glared at her daddy , making a angry pout.
“Daddy , today no mole kissy Vissy vana mela make up khalab ho jaega..(Daddy , today no kiss and all or else my make will get spoil.)” she said strictly , showing her index finger like she was his grandmother. Adi nodded his head innocently. Zoya laughed putting hand on her mouth , seeing this. Zoya applied only little cream on her face and she was calling it as make up.
Manik was busy talking to someone when Nandini stepped inside the party hall. Without seeing her , he felt her presence like always. She used to increase his heartbeat with her presence. He stopped talking to the person and got paused for a moment. Then he turned his face toward the door and there he saw her , his angel. He got froze on his place , seeing his beautiful angel. The others people who were presented in the party hall got vanished , only he could see her. He was captivated by her beauty. She was hypnotising with her ravishing looks.
Nandini eyes fell on him and she immediately looked away because the way he was staring her , she felt little shy. Neyonika and Raj came and welcomed them. Nandini greeted them politely. She again looked toward him and found him still looking at her in same way. Her heart started beating rapidly when he started approaching toward her. Manik reached there and greeted Ram. Navya started admiring his rockstar. Nandini looked toward him , moving her eyelashes upward. He also looked toward her. They passed each other a small smile.
“May I have the pleasure to dance with you ?” He bent down toward her little, forwarding his hand toward her and asked like a complete gentleman from her. He just wanted a moment to talk to her that’s why he asked for a dance from her. He played a smart move here by asking in front of everyone so that she couldn’t able to deny him.
Nandini looked toward his father and he blinked his eyes. Nandini looked toward Manik and put her hand on his hand. Then she shyly looked downward. Manik loved the way how are her eyelashes moved downward. She felt good when he held her hand. He was taking her to dance floor, holding her hand. She was just looking at him. She was in love with this person. Everyone could see that except her.
They stood in front of each other on the stage. Few couples were already dancing there. One of Manik’s romantic song was playing. Manik entwined his hands with her. Her fingers perfectly fitted in his hands like their hands were also made for each other like them. Manik pulled her close to himself. Nandini was just looking into his eyes. Her heartbeat was increasing with each passing second. He smiled looking at her and then holding her other hand , put it on his shoulder. From his free hand , he grasped her waist. They started moving to and fro with the flow , looking deeply into each other eyes.
“Red suits you the most. Do you have any Idea what you are doing to me , today ? You are killing me with your looks. You are looking more beautiful than my imagination. Just out of the world.” He went close to her ear and said. He didn’t leave any chance to praise his beautiful angel and also not leave any chance to tell her that she is the most beautiful creature of the god for him. Completing his words , he twirled her , holding her hand. Then he pulled her toward himself, holding her arms from behind. Her back collided with his front , she closed her eyes in response , resting her head on him. He nuzzled his face in her hair. He loved the fragrance of her hair a lot. Their legs were moving to and fro with the flow of song. They got lost in each other , forgetting that many people eyes were on them.
“I will wait for you on terrace. Come fast. Don’t make me wait , angel.” He said and left her arms. Nandini who got completely lost in him , came on the earth back when he left her eyes hand and said those words. She opened her eyes. She turned around and saw him going upstairs. He turned his face toward her. He winked , having smile on his face. Then he went upstairs. Nandini was standing there confusingly and thinking that why he was calling her upstairs.
Nandini reached on terrace and she was amazed to see the beautiful decoration of the terrace. Manik was standing , leaning on railing , wrapping his hands around his chest and grinning. His winsome grin stole her heart at that moment. She wanted to tell him loudly that his smile was cutest. But no word was coming out of her mouth at that moment. She was dumbstruck , firstly seeing the decoration and then his adorable smile.
He was walking toward her slowly and her heart start beating rapidly. He reached toward her. He was silently smiling , looking at her. She was confused that why he was quiet.
“I am waiting Nandini..” He finally spoke breaking the silence after few minutes but made her more confused with his words.
“I am already here and now for whom you are waiting ?” She instantly asked from him. He smirked , making her more confused.
” For those three magical words.” He said straight away. He was very excited to hear those words from her mouth. Nandini closed her eyes disappointedly. She was disappointed from herself that why she couldn’t able to confess her love if she really loved him.
“Manik I will confess.”She said in serious tone , opening her eyes.
“But before that I want to say something to you. So can I ?” She asked and he nodded his head in response. She took a deep breath and then continued.
“You already know that I need time. You are even ready for it and I am glad. We met only few days back and I fall in love with you unknowingly. Before meeting you , I used to thing that I will never able to love someone again. But I proved wrong. I fall in love again. And today after realising this , I am thinking positive that may be I can trust you also one day. A relationship stands on the basis of trust. Before moving further , I just want to trust you. I just mean to say that my love for you is not true because I still don’t trust you. My mind is not in my control. May be with time , it will. May be with time , your love will overcome my fear. Just I want to say that please don’t expect anything from me for now. But I am promise you one thing that I will never hide anything from you. What I feel and I will tell you.” She shared with him everything whatever was going in her mind. Indirectly she also accepted that she loved him. Manik was happy about this because at least she started thinking positive.
“So you still want me to confess love ?” She asked and he immediately nodded his head negatively. Because now he wanted her to confess her love when she would start trusting him. When she would start loving him truly.
“This is more than enough for me , Angel for now. Your positive attitude made me really happy. I already told you that I don’t want you to trust me now , I just only want that you should try to move on.” He said , putting his hand on her face. His happiness was clearly visible in his eyes. Nandini closed her eyes in response when his hand touched her cheek. Seeing her reaction, a naughty idea came in his mind.
“Thank you for giving this amazing engagement gift.” He said , removing his hand from her face. When he removed his hand , she opened her eyes , coming on the earth back.
“In return, Now It’s my turn to give you some reward. So are you ready ?” He asked , raising his eyebrows. She was looking at him confusingly. Next moment, he pulled her close to himself , holding her arms. Her heart stopped beating for a moment when his hands touched her skin. The smirk on his face was making her feel like something naughty was going in his mind. She was having no idea which type of reward he was talking about.
