“I promised you that I will never leave you and I will fulfil my that promise. I will never let you go.” He said in intense tone looking deeply into her sorrowful eyes. He could fight from the whole world for her but he would never let her go at any cost.
“Manik , why aren’t you understanding that we will never able to live happily together by hurting Shivansh.” She said the truth and Manik closed his eyes dejectedly. Nandini was saying right that they would not able to live happily by hurting Shivansh but then too he couldn’t leave her because he loved her. He was already regretting for leaving her alone. He would never do the same mistake of leaving her again. He would always love her and protect her from this cruel world.
Nandini’s heart wanted to live with him forever but then too she was fighting with him to let her go because last night, she got scared after seeing Manik’s condition. She didn’t want Shivansh to hate Manik because of her. Manik would break down if Shivansh would hate him. She couldn’t see him in pain.
“Will we able to live happily without each other?” He asked making her quiet. She looked down silently because the answer was no.
“In fact we will not able to live without each other even a single day.” He gave the answer of his question himself. She was just looking down on floor dejectedly because whatever he was saying, he was saying right. They would not able to live without each other but still she wanted to leave her because he didn’t want him to get separated from shivansh.
“Manik , please let me go.” She cried and begged from Manik to let her go. Manik felt hurt seeing her in pain.
“Never.. , I will never let you go.” Manik hugged Nandini so tightly wrapping his arms around her like he wanted to store her in his arms forever. He wanted to cage her soul in his arms.
“You are my shining star and I won’t let my star ever go away from me.” He cried hugging her tighter. He was pulling her more and more close to himself.
She also started crying in his arms with him forgetting everything burying her face in his chest. But the moment she realised that she had to go , she tried to come out of his arms but he hugged her tighter. “Don’t make this more difficult for me , please.” She decided to leave Manik putting stone on her heart and now he was making the things more difficult for her.
“Manik , I am going to break Shivansh’s heart. He will need you after that. But if we will both break his heart by telling him that you love me then he will be left alone. For Shivansh , please let me go.” She implored him to let her go while constantly trying to come out from his arms.
As Manik leave her , she ran toward the door to leave. Manik felt like his heart skipped beating for a moment seeing her leaving in front of his eyes. He ran behind her and stopped her by hugging her tightly from behind. His one hand was wrapped around her waist and other was wrapped around her chest. His stubble was touching her cheek.
“We will handle him together , Nandini. He deserves to know the whole truth. Please ,don’t go. I need you. You are my everything. On my every breath, your name is written. My heart is beating for you , if you will leave me , it will stop beating. I am completely incomplete without you. My soul is craving to make you mine. I need you , my star. We will fight from all the problems together. I can do anything for you but I can’t leave you , never.” He whispered in her ear while crying.
“Please don’t go, please.” He cried hugging her tightly from behind. Nandini started melting in his arms. She couldn’t fight with him more. She realised that she was thinking wrong that he needed Shivansh more than her. He needed her the most in his life and he proved this today by not letting her go. She tried to convince him a lot to let her go but he didn’t let her go.
“I’m sorry , Manik. I will never leave you. I love you.” She apologised putting one hand on his stubble and put her other hand on his hand which was wrapped around her waist.
He turned her toward himself and started kissing every inch of her face cubbing her face. After every kiss , he was whispering I love you. Nandini was crying seeing that how much he loved her. She was feeling like he was kissing her soul with every kiss. He kissed eyelids and took away her all pain.
“Please, never ask me again to leave you.” He requested stroking her face looking deeply into her eyes.
“Never” She nodded her head negatively and hugged him burying her face in his chest and wrapping her arms around him. He hugged her back tightly and kissed her head. Finally their fight ended and in the end , their love won. With every passing day , their love was becoming stronger.
Manan were going to pickup Shivansh from the airport. They were sitting at the backseat of car. They decided to tell the truth to Shivansh after reaching home , they had to behave normal at the airport which was going to be very difficult. They couldn’t hide the truth from him anymore. Both were tensed thinking that how would they tell him the truth and how would he react after that.
“I never wanted to break his heart , Manik.” Nandini looked at Manik and uttered breaking the silence.
“I don’t know why he loves me so much ?”Manik remained silent because he was having no answer of her this question.
“Why this happened ?” She asked looking at him with sorrowful eyes. She was on the verge of crying.
“He should know that you don’t love him. It would be difficult but he will move on one day. He deserves the girl who will love him unconditionally. You weren’t in his destiny. You are going to break his heart for his better future.” He said cubbing her face. He himself was broken but still he was trying to console her , this called love. Nandini was just crying silently looking at him.
“Everything will be fine , don’t worry.” He assured her taking her in his protective arms. She cried silently in his arms clutching his shirt. He shut his eyes and few tears rolled down from his eyes.
They were waiting for Shivansh at the Airport. “Everything will be fine.” Manik whispered and blinked his eyes looking at Nandini. She gave him small smile in response.
As they saw Shivansh , their heartbeat increased. He was walking toward them having a bright smile on his face. The smile which they were going to snatch from him. Shivansh’s P.A. was coming behind him with the luggage. He waved his hand at them and they both forced themself to smile back at him.
“How are you , Bro ?” He hugged Manik first. Manik hugged him back closing his eyes thinking that this was going to be their last hug. He was stopping himself from not crying at that moment but couldn’t. His heart became heavy and few tears fell down from his eyes. He wiped them immediately with the back of his palm before breaking the hug. He again plastered a smile on his face.
Nandini was standing silently looking down. So many things were going in her mind. She was physically presented there but mentally she was not there.
“I missed you so much , jaan.” Shivansh hugged her tightly wrapping his arms around her neck and he brought her back on the earth with this hug. She looked at Manik whose eyes were looking down on floor. She couldn’t able to hug him back. She just kept looking at Manik like a lifeless soul.
He broke the hug and looking at the condition of Nandini , he felt like something was wrong. She was looking so weak and her eyes were filled with pain. He understood that she was trying to hide pain behind her fake smile. He became hell worried for her.
“You have become so weak with in one week. Are you fine , Nandini?” He asked concernedly cupping her face.
“I’m fine , Shivansh.” She instantly answered and tried to smile broadly to convince him that she was fine. But he was not convinced, He thought to talk to her at home. He smiled back and gently kissed her forehead.
“Let’s go home.” Manik said and Shivansh nodded his head positively. Then they all walked out from the Airport.
Manik was sitting at the front seat with the driver and at the backseat, Shivansh was sitting with Nandini entwining his hand with her. He was telling her that how much he missed her. Nandini wasn’t listening to him , her mind was only thinking that how he would react after knowing the truth. Manik was looking at her through the front mirror.
“Nandini…” he shook her holding her shoulder and brought her back on the earth.
“Where are you lost , Nandini ? What happened?” He asked worriedly putting his one hand on her face.
“Nothing.” Nandini shook her head negatively.
“Don’t lie. I know , there is something. Tell me , what is bothering you ?” He asked cupping her face. She kept staring him silently , she wasn’t understanding that how to tell him the truth.
“Say something, please.” He begged her to say something but she remained silent. She was making him hell worried with her this behaviour.
“Look , what I brought for you.” He took out the pendant from the pocket of his blazer and showed to her. It was half heart pendant on which Shivansh was written.
“I brought this for us. I love you so much Nandini.” He confessed showing the pendant which he was wearing around his neck , on which Nandini’s name was printed. He wanted to change her mood by this but it made her more emotional.
“I don’t deserve this.” Nandini couldn’t able to control herself and bursted into tears seeing his love for her. She was feeling guilty for never loving the person who loved her so much. Shivansh was numb seeing her crying like this. Manik was also crying silently sitting at the front seat. He was not understanding that why destiny had written so many complications in their live.
