(Part: 34) Mine (Manan)

Before Khushi could reach there, someone pulled her by holding her hand and dragged her into the empty room. After locking the door, the person pinned her against the wall.

“Arnav, why did you pull me inside?” Khushi asked in fury.

He clasped her face. “Because I saw, someone was there.”

“Who? It’s our secret place, this is very wrong? “Khushi complained, looking down. Arnav was smiling, playing with her hair.

“I think, we should change our secret place. I love romancing with you at different places.” As he clasped her face, Khushi blushed, moving her eyelashes down. He yanked her to himself and slammed her lips.

Arnav and Khushi, Arshi had been playing hide and seek game in college since two months like Manan. Arnav and Khushi were neighbourhood and they fell in love, but because of the age difference, Khushi’s parents were against of their relationship, but Khushi left her parents for Arnav and now she was living with Arnav happily. She missed her parents, but she couldn’t live without him. He was an orphan. There was no one in his life except Khushi. Khushi was his life. Arshi were madly in love with each other.

“Nandini, are you fine?” Khushi asked Nandini when she came back to the classroom.

“Yes, I am perfectly fine,” Nandini said and suddenly her eyes fell over her lips.

“Why Khushi’s lipstick is removed like me as like someone has kissed her, I should ask.” She wondered, and Khushi was looking at her in confusion, touching her lips.

“Nandu, are you mad? What if Khushi asked me about the kiss, then what I would say to her? I shouldn’t ask.” She was about to ask, but stopped after thinking this and nodded her head cutely, making Khushi more confused.

“Nandini, what happened?” Khushi asked.

“Nothing.” She suddenly shouted and Khushi found something weird.

“Khushi, I love your hair, they are so smooth and shiny.” Nandini tried to change the topic.

“Thank you, Nandu, but is there something which you are hiding from me?” As Khushi asked, Nandini widened her eyes in shock and shook her head. She was looking dam cute, if Manik was here, he would have kissed her.

Before Nandini could answer her, a teacher came and announced the fresher party which was at that night only. Nandini became super excited after listening about the party.

“Wow, Khushi, party, it will be too much fun, right? “Nandini said and Khushi was just smiling.

“Now Khushi, bye. We’ll meet at the party.” Nandini stood up and dashed out of the classroom because she wanted to share her excitement with her Hubby.

“Where is hubby? He asked me to wait for him here after the class, now he is missing.” She murmured sadly, waiting for him at the parking area. She took out her phone from her handbag.

“I’ll surely punish him for making me wait. I was so excited to tell him about the fresher party.” she thought, calling him.

On the other hand, Manik bumped with Arnav and they exchanged angry glares. Arnav walked away.

“Arnav, still you won’t talk to me?” Manik asked after turning toward him, expecting he would turn, but he only stopped for a few seconds after hearing his words, and then walked away. Manik stood there dejectedly. His eyes brimmed with tears. He was on the verge of crying but controlled himself by pursuing his lips.

“Oh shit, Nandini will be waiting for me.” He took out the phone from his pocket which was ringing.

He placed the phone over his ear. “Yes baby, I am coming within two minutes.”

“Come fast, or else I will punish you.” She cutely warned him, a smile spread across his face. Only she had the power to make him smile in any kind of situation.

He hurriedly reached there and found her sitting on the floor, resting her back against the car. Her face was up, she was complaining about him to God. He smiled, seeing his cute baby.

“Hubby, I have waited for you for ten minutes. bhala aise koe itzar karwata hai apni cute and pyaari si wife ko?(Does anybody make his wife wait?)” She asked cutely, wiping off her invisible tears, doing full drama. Manik was just gazing at her.

“See, mosquitoes were biting me.” She showed him her hands where there was no mosquito bite. Manik didn’t see and started kissing her hands. He apologised for making her wait, and now Nandini was smiling blissfully, seeing his care.

As She clasped his face, he looked up at her sadly. She saw the pain in his eyes. “Hubby, I was just kidding, I am okay.”

“Hubby, why are you so saddy saddy? I should be ashamed because my husband is with me and then also he is sad.” Nandini uttered disappointedly.

“Oh baby, I am fine.” He reassured her, holding her hand.

“No, your eyes are telling that you are upset. Now you are telling me or not that why you are sad?” She asked, glaring at him.

“Baby, I am not sad. You’re thinking wrong.” He lied, playing with her fingers.

“This is very very wrong, hubby. You should share your pain with your wife. I think you don’t consider me as your wife.” Nandini jerked his hand away in anger. He was expert in hiding his pain, but hiding his pain from Nandini now, it was utterly impossible.

“Nandini, I am saying I am fine. Why are you asking this, again and again? I’m fine, now do you understand?” He shouted after pulling her closer to himself by grasping her arms. Nandini shivered on her place and her eyes became teary.

“Hubby, I am sorry but don’t shout on me.” She requested in crying tone. Seeing her upset, Manik realized his mistake and instantly left her arms, now the guilt was vividly visible in his eyes. He was looking at Nandini sadly. He looked down in guilt and a lone tear dropped down his cheek. He hastily wiped his tear and looked back at Nandini.

He cupped her face. “I am so sorry, baby. I am so sorry.” He apologised through the core of his heart and Nandini was looking at him sadly.

“Sorry will not be accepted until you don’t tell me what is bothering you so much.” Nandini being a stubborn baby asked the same question again after crossing her arms around her chest.

“Okay, fine I will tell you but at home, first let’s go home.” He requested, holding her hand.

“Paka na, if you do any cheating, then I won’t talk to you for a month. I’ll not share anything with you.” She warned him. Manik smiled after listening to her warning and nodded his head like an innocent kid. Nandini smiled. Then they strolled to the car.

Yaaron Dosti

Badi Hi Haseen Hai

Yeh Na Ho To Kya Phir

Bolo Yeh Zindagi Hai

This song was playing in the car and some movements of the past were coming in front of his eyes. Three friends playing basketball together and singing together. One was Abhi and the other one was Arnav and the last one was Manik himself. They were young.

“Stop it…” he suddenly yelled and applied the brake. Nandini stared at him in shock.

“Manik,” Nandini murmured and Manik rested his head on steering.

“Hubby, what happened?” Nandini asked in a low voice, placing her hand on his shoulder. Manik looked at Nandini helplessly. Nandini was beyond shock after seeing him so helpless for the first time.

“What to do Nandini? Why he came back?” As he asked, she narrowed her brows bemusedly.

“Who?” Nandini asked, having no clue of the person.

“Arnav,” She was still staring at him in confusion.

“Arnav sir! Manik how do you know him?” Nandini asked, becoming curious now.

“He was my best friend.” He was pausing after each word.

“But he didn’t trust me, Nandini. He had no trust in me and not even he had trust in our childhood friendship.” Manik told her, and Nandini was confused about what to say. She was listening to him silently.

“Why he is still affecting me Nandini? I hope that he will trust me one day. Why I just can’t throw him out of My Life?” Manik clutched the steering in fury. Nandini was staring at him helplessly, feeling sorry for him.

“Manik, have you seen the movie Ek villain?” As she asked this question, he stared at her in utter disbelief. At this movement also she was talking about the movie.

“Manik, tell me.” She again asked after not getting any reply from him and after that, he just nodded his head positively.

She clasped his face and reassured him. “So there was a dialogue in that movie and that was Jab tak hum kisi ke humdard nahi bante tab tak hum dard se aur dard humse juda nahi hota (Until someone sympathizes with us, till then we don’t leave pain and neither does pain leave us.) Hubby, share with me, you will feel better.”

She moved closer to his face and both looked deeply into each other eyes, having so much love for each other.

Manik was about to say something, but before that Nandini slammed his lips, making him shocked. Then they both started kissing each other lovingly. Manik took Nandini on his lap and wrapped her legs around his waist. She deepened the kiss, encircling her arms around his neck. Through this kiss, she just wanted to take away his all pain and wanted to give him relief. She didn’t know what the exact thing which was bothering him, but whatever it was, she wanted to take out with this soothing kiss. He was roaming his hands on her back. He slid his hands into her top and gave massage to her twins. She moaned in his mouth, enjoying his touch like always.

Finally, Manik was out of his pain and got lost in the love of Nandini. Nandini was Innocent and childish, but she knew very well that how to take her husband out of the pain. She knew how to make him smile in tears also. As like Nandini was lucky to have him and in the same way Manik was not even less lucky to have a girl like Nandini in his life. They were made for each other.
