Next morning , Nandini got ready for meeting Manik’s family. She was looking beautiful in blue full length dress. She just applied lipstick and eyeliner. Her face was glowing naturally , she was not nervous, in fact she was excited to meet his family.
“If i will marry Manik , my dream of having a huge family will be get fulfilled. Mom , dad , brothers, sister , wow , i am super exited to meet them. Thank god Manik is different from other rich people , because of him only , i will able to call his family, my family” she was talking to herself and it was clearly visible, she was going crazy to meet his family.
There was knock on the door of her room. She walked toward the door and she made confused face when she found a unknown girl standing in front of her eyes.
“Hi , I am Mukti , Manik’s sister”she said forwarding her hand in front of Nandini .
“Hi , Mukti” Nandini directly hugged Mukti making her shocked because she was not expecting hug from her.
“I came here to take you downstairs” Mukti said after breaking the hug .
“then let’s go”Nandini said and then both came downstairs.
Nandini smiled wholeheartedly seeing the whole family. They were sitting in hall and talking with her father. She looked at everyone and then smiled broadly when she saw her would be husband sitting at corner of sofa, sipping the water from glass. Cabir looked at Nandini who was coming towards them and with his elbow , he called Manik , He looked at Cabir and in gesture Cabir asked him to look at Nandini. And when he looked at her , he got lost in her beauty, she gave him smile and he also smiled back. Manik started staring her like a fool forgetting everybody, he went in another world where he could see only her.
“Here comes Nandini Kapoor” Mukti said and everybody looked at Nandini who was standing there having a small smile on her face. She greeted everyone by saying hello. Everyone started introducing themselves to Nandini and she was passing her beautiful smile to everybody.
“I am Mushkan (Muskan), sabse choti aul (aur) chachi aap bhut plety (pretty) lag lahai (rahai) ho”she said in kiddish language which made everyone laugh there and stole Nandini heart with her words in first meet.
“Thank you Muskan and you are also looking very pretty” Nandini replied looking at her having smile on her face.
“Thanku Chachi” Muskan thanked her cutely which made Nandini smiled more broadly.
“Nandini beta , come sit here with me”Neyonika made Nandini sit between herself and Zoya . She was just smiling. Neyonika started asking about her hobbies and Nandini was replying her politely. When Manik was just busy in admiring her , Mukti and Cabir were silently laughing looking at their brother.
“Bhai please come back on the earth varna humhri hone wali babhi ko apki hi najar lag jaegi” Cabir said in low voice to Manik. Listening this , he came back on the earth and started looking here and there embarrassingly as he was been caught while staring Nandini like an idiot. Mukti and Cabir gave a high five to each other.
“Mumma Mule chachi ki godh mein bethna hai(i want sit in Chachi’s lap)” when Zoya and Neyonika were busy in talking with Nandini. Muskan said who was sitting in her mumma’s lap. Like always her words caught everybody attention.
“Come beta” Zoya was about to deny but before this Nandini asked Muskan to come in her lap opening her arms looking at her lovingly. Muskan immediately jumped in Nandini’s arms. Nandini’s hugged her lovingly.
” aap bhut pyaali (pyaari) ho ( you are very sweet)”Nandini said in her language and then kissed her forehead. While everybody were smiling looking at them. Manik again got lost in her.
Nandini’s acts were clearly showing that what type of person she was. Neyonika was super happy after meeting Nandini because she was wishing to get daughter in law like Nandini and finally she got also. After that again Neyonika and Zoya got busy in talking with her. Raj and Ram were busy in their talks , Manik was busy in admiring his angel and His siblings were busy in making fun of him. Poor Manik was dying to talk with her but he was having no choice rather than sitting there quietly because it was not Manan meet. It was Nandini meet with his family. He also wanted that Nandini should know about his family properly because for him his family was most important.
Nandini looked toward Manik and he gave her big smile but with in few second only. Neyonika called her. Nandini with her answers , she was impressing Neyonika and Zoya. They both were happy for Manik. Neyonika was proud of his husband choice. Nandini was a girl whose heart was pure like crystal, she used to think about other before herself. She had always put his father above her and there was no doubt after marriage she would always put Manik and his family after her. She knew the importance of family because from childhood she had craved for family like hell and always wished to have a big family.
Cabir intentionally pushed Manik and the drink which he was holding , it fell down on his cloth. Everybody looked at him. “Sorry”he apologised after getting up after putting the glass on table and through the corner of his eyes he glared at Cabir but he didn’t know that soon he was going to thank his brother.
“Koe nhi beta (it’s okay)” Ram said to Manik while Manik was looking at his cloth which became dirty.
“Nandini beta , take him to the washroom” Ram said to Nandini and she nodded her head. Zoya took Muskan from her lap and Nandini got up looking at Manik while Manik mind was busy thanking his brother.
“Come , i will show you the way” Nandini said walking toward her room and Manik also left following her not before mouthing thank you to Cabir and he winked.
” You are great Cabir”Mukti said proudly putting hand on his shoulder in low voice. “I am great but still Manik is your favourite brother” Cabir said making sad pout dramatically which made Mukti laughed. “You are my cutest brother” Mukti said pulling his cheeks.
Manan walked inside Nandini’s room. His eyes started admiring her room. The room was well maintained and beautifully designed which was showing that her taste was good. He wanted to do some changes in his room for her as after marriage he wanted that his room should be mixed up of their choices. That’s why he was seeing each and everything properly.
“So beautiful” automatically these words came out from his mouth when his eyes fell on the big picture of her. Her smile on her face was making her picture more beautiful. Nandini smiled looking at him when he was busy in staring at her picture.
“Thank you” listening her words , he came to the earth. He looked at her and found her smiling looking at him and he again got lost in her beautiful smile. Her beauty was doing a magic on him.
“Don’t you want to go washroom”she asked and he came back to earth again listening her words.
“Washroom, why ?”he asked forgetting the real purpose for which they came in her room. She looked at him confusingly.
” your cloth became dirty , don’t you want to clean?” Nandini asked confusingly while Manik closed his eyes embarrassingly because he was behaving like an idiot in front of her.
“What are you doing , Manik. What she will think about you”thinking this he opened his eyes and found her standing there confusingly.
“Where is the washroom”he asked and she pointed her hand toward the washroom. He walked toward the washroom.
“Listen voh tap ko open karne mein problem ati hai so , let me open it”she said walking inside the washroom behind him when he was just about to open the tap. Listening her words he turned toward her and nodding his head stood on the side. Looking at him she walked toward the tap. She started trying to turn on the tap and he was staring at her as again he got lost in her. The tap broke down and like a fountain water started falling down and made both of them wet. Nandini was trying to stop the water and Manik like an idea still he was lost in her. The water was making him more and more wet and he went in the another world.
She took the step and walk toward the door but her leg got slipped because of the water. She closed her eyes in a fear of falling down but she felt two strong arms protected her before she could fall down. She held his shirt tightly and her eyes were still closed. Manik was just looking at her , for the first he was seeing her from so close. Holding her in his arms was like he got his heaven. He could stare at her like this till infinity. Nandini slowly opened her eyes and this time she also got lost looking into his eyes. She was feeling like she got her home in his arms , his touch was making her feel good. Both of their heart were beating fast , the water still falling on them and they went to another world. This feeling was new for both of them , they never felt so good in anybody arms before.
“Manik” After coming back to her senses , she called him and listening her voice, he also came back to earth. He made her stood properly while she was trying to avoid eyes contact with him.
“I am sorry because of this , you got wet” she apologised while playing with her hands and her eyes were looking at her hands. Manik felt like something was worrying her. He was noticing her each and every move.
“You don’t need to say sorry and don’t worry about this , i know how to fix this”he spoke and waited for her to look at him. Finally her eyelashes moved upward and she gave him small smile looking at him. He smiled to fullest after seeing her smile. Her smile was precious and beautiful for him.
“Can i get a piece of cloth” he asked and she nodding her head went outside and bring a cloth. She gave him the cloth and he started tying the cloth to stop the water from falling. Now it was Nandini’s turn to stare Manik. For the first time, she was admiring him. She found him perfect from everywhere. His lips , his nose his jawline , everything was perfectly shaped. Anybody can forget everything , looking into his black eyes. His one look was enough to take your breath. Nandini was getting impressed with his looks and behaviour but her heart was still not ready to trust him because of one incident. The incident which changed her and her life.
