Mukti was sitting at the backseat of car while driver was putting the luggage in the dicky. She was leaving for the airport.
“Shivansh..” She was shocked to find Shivansh in front of her car. He strode toward the door and opened it.
“You’re not going anywhere.” He grasped her wrist and took her out of the car. Mukti was staring at bemusedly.
“Shivansh, what happened to you suddenly?” She asked, staring at him.
“I fell in love.” She gasped, listening to him and felt a sharp pain in his heart. The person whom she loved, he again fell in love with somebody else.
She looked down to control her tears. She plastered a smile and raised her eyelashes to look at him. “ I’m happy for you. Who is the lucky girl ?” She asked, fighting back with her tears.
“She is so beautiful and kindhearted girl. The most amazing girl.” He started praising the girl and it was getting difficult for her to control her emotions.
“I’m getting late. I have to go.” She turned around to open the door of car. But Shivansh stopped her by holding her hand. In a swift motion, he pulled her toward himself. Her back collided with his front.
Mukti’s heartbeat became fast because of their proximity. She closed her eyes and took a deep breath, resting her head on his chest. She got lost in his touch forgetting everything, forgetting about the whole world.
“I love you, Mukti.” As he whispered in her ear, Mukti opened her eyes in shock.
She pulled away and turned toward him. She stared at him incredulously.
He clasped her face and moved closer to her. “I really love you.” Mukti was beyond shocked. She felt like she was dreaming with open eyes.
After kissing her forehead, he knelt down in front of her. “I wanna spend rest of my life with you. Will you marry me ?”He held her hand and asked, his eyes were filled with love. Mukti was just staring at him incredulously. She was thunderstruck with his sudden confession and marriage proposal.
“I’m waiting for the answer, Mukti.” He said because she wasn’t responding. “My knees are hurting. Will you answer me, Mukti ?”
Next moment, she burst into tears. Shivansh instantly stood up, seeing her in tears.
“I know that I hurt you a lot in past. I was a fool that I could never see your love. And you never confessed for my happiness. I realised that I also love you. You know, what I feel for you is different, I never felt like this for Nandini. The distance between us made me realise that what you are for me. Without you, one day was like thousand years for me. I passed every moment counting as if I was bearing a punishment. I really want to spend rest of my life with you, Mukti. I want to marry you. I promise you that I will never let you cry after this. Till my last breath, I will support you. All life long, my love for you will never fade.”
He was telling his true feelings to her and wiping her tears which were constantly rolling down on her cheeks. Her heart was crying with the happiness. She didn’t expect this to happen, it was like she was seeing a dream.
She started crying hiding her face in his chest and clutching his jacket. “I really love you Shivansh. I really wanted to tell you this from so long time. I’m feeling like I’m dreaming. If it is really a dream, then I don’t want to wake up, I just want to live in this dream forever. I love you so much. I love you..”
Shivansh wrapped his arms around her and he was caressing her hair. He could understand her pain. She had endured a lot pain in past because of her one sided love.
He let her cry and let her take out her all pain for few minutes and then he broke the hug. “Stop crying, please.” He implored, clasping her face.
He moved closer to her face and sucked her tears. “Like this, I will take away all your pain.”
Mukti was gazing at him. “I just can’t believe.” She murmured and he smiled.
“Don’t worry, I’ll make you believe.” He placed a kiss on her cheek. Her lips curled into beautiful smile.
He clasped her hand. “Now tell me, do you want to spend rest of my life with you?” He asked, looking at her.
She smiled broadly but next second, her smile faded away and corners of lips drawn down.
Shivansh’s eyebrows caressed. “What happened?” He asked concernedly.
“I want to tell you something. I..” he shushed her, putting finger on her lips.
“I know everything. You just be relax.” He kissed her forehead.
“I know that I’m going to become daddy soon.” He whispered, gazing at her lovingly.
“How, do you know ?” Her eyes bug out.
He smiled and knelt down, ignoring her question. “First let me talk to my baby.” He said, looking upward at her.
He held her waist and staring at her belly fondly. “Hello my baby, daddy is here. I just want to tell you that your daddy loves you and your mumma a lot.” He placed a kiss on her belly over the fabric of her top.
Mukti smiled blissfully and few fresh tears rolled down her cheeks. She was really feeling like she was seeing a beautiful dream. She was extremely happy and her heart was dancing joyfully inside her.
After that he stood up and cupped her face. “I really wanna kiss you, Can I ?” He asked, staring at her lips sensuously and then he again looked at her.
She was getting turned on with his seductive looks. “I have been waiting for this day since so long. In fact, I never knew that my this wish will come true one day.” She put her hands on his face and caressed his dark stubble with his fingers. He closed his eyes, her touch was making him crazy.
She herself moved closer to his lips. He opened his eyes as he felt her hot breath on his lips. Both smiled at each other. Then their lips touched, making them shiver on their places. They started kissing each other slowly and softly, pouring all the love. Her hands went in his hair. He pulled her closer to himself, holding her waist and deepened the kiss. Their bodies were on fire. They were kissing each other souls through the kiss.
After a few minutes, they pulled apart, staring at each other intensely.
“I really love you, Mukti. You have completed me with your love. I’m really so lucky to have you.” He whispered and kissed her forehead.
Mukti smiled delightfully. “I’m so happy and I love you a lot.” She hugged him happily and he hugged her back tightly, having a blissful smile on his face.
On the other hand, Manan were lying naked in each other arms after completing each other. It was feeling of contentment for both of them. They endured a lot of pain to be together forever. They were staring at each other contently, having a blissful smile on their faces.
“I love you a lot and I’ll always love you. If there is a life after this, I’ll love you there too. You’re the only reason, I’m alive. You completed me. You have given me a new life. You showed me the right path always. You introduced me to a new world where there is nothing to be worried about until you’re with me. You fought for our love always. When I called our love a sin, you were always there to tell me that love can never be a sin, it is a pure emotion. I don’t care what other people think about us, the only thing matters to me is you. You’re a gem of person and I’m really lucky to have you. My love for you will never die. I love you so much, Manik. I love you..”she started kissing all over his face after confessing her feeling.
Manik’s eyes were closed and he was just enjoying the touch of her lips on his skin.
“I love you my star and I just want you too keep shining like this always. I just want to tell you that nobody can separate us because we’re connected to each other through heart. Our bodies can be separated but our hearts, never. Separation can’t even separate us, that’s what our love is. You know what we are, we’re inseparable souls. Things will change with the time and we both will grow together because that’s what life is but one think will never change and it has never changed, that is I’ll always keep falling in love with you. We’ll make each and every day of our life beautiful and special with our love. You’ll be forever my favourite shining star.”
He was playing with her hand and she was just smiling on his words. These words were giving peace to her soul. The fear of losing him was also fading after his confession because nothing could separate, not even death.
“I love you..” both confessed their love to each other for the last and slept peacefully in each other arms, having a blissful smile on their faces.
After one year, Nandini was writing last few lines of her book ‘Love Or Sin’, sitting on her desk. It took her one year to complete this book. This book was more close to her heart because this is the story of her life.
She wrote “True love can never be a sin because love is a pure emotion and it can happen anytime and anywhere. So never regret after falling in love because it is God’s blessing.”
So the journey of Manan ends here. Hope you like it.
