She really didn’t want to face him and that was clearly visible on her face..and the pain that reflected!! Her heart contracted thinking about Anisha…will she even want to see her face?
Maan kind of understood that look on her face. He moved forward to reach her..make her understand..to tell her so many things. She just stood up..and moved a step back!!! Maan felt that pinch him..why was she running away? Why? What did he do? Dia and namra looked at both of them shocked..not able to understand what they were doing!!!!
Maan was pained to see her running away from him…he didn’t know why! 1st she tries to distance herself from him…and then suddenly disappear for 5 long years and when they meet again..she is running away from him! Why?
Maan; geet….meri baat suno
[geet…listen to me]
She just wanted to get away from there. She shut her eyes and walked out..literally running away when she heard dia speak, “angel!! Aap jaa rahi ho?”
[angel you are going?]
She stopped….dia and namra were the cutest angels ever on this earth..anisha will never like her staying with her kids! It was better she goes away from there before she comes.
Namra: aap waapis aaogi na?
[you will come back na??]
They had so much hope..so much expectations and so much sweetness…. She couldn’t reply them because she didn’t want to hurt their feelings.
Dia: you will come na angel?
Even Maan looked at her expectantly…even Dadima! She was trapped in a maze..there were so many entries but there was hardly any exit! And with her weak heart..it wouldn’t take her even a second to go back to Maan and Dadima.. and the cuties but she cannot right! They heard a loud thunder..probably it was going to rain. Dia got scared and hugged namra. Geet helplessly looked at the two cuties.. why did she feel that they needed her? why there was a sudden urge to be with them and hold them tight in her cocoon? Why did she feel a pull towards them? She really didn’t want to go..yet she had to go! There was no place for geet in here.
She looked one last time at Maan’s face and couldn’t stop her tears. No matter wherever she goes or where she hides..her stupid heart always has the weakness for Maan!! Stupid! Stupid! Stupid! There was another loud thunder and she just ran out. Dadima sighed and kept looking at her… she had said 5 minutes right..she wont stop her! she knew she was being a bit selfish..but she can never see all her children breaking down like that. she was determined to bring them together before she closes her eyes forever!
Maan ran after. He had found her after so many years..and this time he wont let her go. He couldn’t stop Anisha… it was never in his hands..he was helpless that time..but this time he is not. He will bring her back and they will go back to the good old days that they shared! Geet was someone that he had always wanted beside him in every step of his life..even when Anisha was with him and even now! He was alone..he had tried searching for her so much…but didn’t understand why he couldn’t find her!
It had suddenly started raining heavily in the otherwise bright afternoon. Geet ran out…what was she doing? Everything went blurry in her tear clouded eyes. She cried..suppressing her voice..and that’s when she felt someone hold her hand and haul her into his chest. She knew it was Maan…she closed her eyes and tired to push him away!
Maan: geet..listen to me…
Geet cried, “no..let me go…..“
She struggled hard..wriggling her hands… trying to pull herself out but he held her strong…not letting her move!
Maan: listen to me geet..look at me….
She shook her head violently, “no..please..let me go Maan… jaane do mujhe…“
Abhi to aaye the aur aise chal diye
Dekha bhi nahi aur fir gum ho gaye…
Kya hai jo tumhe mujhse dur le gaya hai
Bata bhi do kyu tumne ye duri banayi hai…
Aaye ho ab to fir na jaane denge
Chahe jitna bhaag lo hum ab tumhe dhund leng
He suppressed his own cry and hugged her tight. She was again trying to go away….and he really can’t afford to lose her! she cried.. struggled to move away hit his chest hard..but he still didn’t let go. He just held her tight..close to him! She fought for long..Rain drenched them completely… and she cried….!! He didn’t even loosen his grip. Finally she just ceased her struggle and hugged him tight..crying her heart out. he just held her…letting her cry! He didn’t know why she was so upset or why was she running away from him… but that didn’t matter any more…what mattered him the most was he finally found her.
Geet hugged him back..like never before. All these years…how much she had craved for him… Maan…Maan…. Maan…. that was it! She just gave up..she couldn’t hold back and held him tight! She was seeing him after so long..he was fine..he was so happy,….that just soothed her heart and that he still remembered her!!! they stood there..getting wet in the rain..god knows for how long but finally geet moved back..wiping her tears and turend to leave. He held her hand!
Maan; tum aaogi na..
[you will come na..]
She bit her lips..she can never ever deny him. It was never in her to deny him what he expected from her! she just nodded softly and walked ahead!!!
Geet lay on her bed…it was 1am and she isn’t able to sleep a wink. Every time she closed her eyes..dia and namra flashed in front of them! They way they looked at her…they spoke to her…and that moment when namra was trying to comb dia’s hair..why did it feel that something was wrong? Even Maan… he held on to her like he needed her more than anything else!!! Why was she feeling so restless1 where was Anisha when she went in there? But she had to admit she was eagerly waiting fpr the morning so that she could go and meet them! And Maan..the way he asked her to come… she had to go!!!!
Geet left without having breakfast. Prem was to leave to pune and geet didn’t even speak to him. Rather..she didn’t speak to any one since last night. She was lost in her own world….she hadn’t even had her dinner and she was hurriedly getting ready to go somewhere none knew of!!!
Roops held her hand, “geet..kahan jaa rahi hain?‘
[geet..where are you going?]
Geet just gave a look that shocked Roops..she was completely in a trance..like she doesn’t know is going around her.. her mind was somewhere else!!! She was hurriedly packing some things…and running here and there.
Roops asked again, “geet..at least have breakfast..”
Geet just answered absentmindedly, “nahi..mujhe late ho raha hain..they must be waiting for me…. “
[I am getting late.. they must be waiting for me…]
Prem: am going today geet… tu kahan jaa rahi hain.??
[am going today geet… where are you going?]
Geet ran out holding her car keys, “I am late..i have to go..”
And she was gone!!! The one thing that was in her mind that they must be waiting for her!!! well..this was the geet… that lived and dies for Maan!!! Roops and Prem didn’t understand anything. Aryan was out for a few days.. and geet behaving weird!!!
Geet ran up the stairs because the lift was full!!! She was completely breathless by the time she reached his suit. She was about to ring the bell when she heard a loud cry from the other side of the door. She panicked…was it dia..or namra??? She literally gate crashed and ran inside and help crying namra in her arms and gave a deathly glare to Maan!!!!
Maan was surprised to see geet there..and the way she glared at him… he gulped hard!!!! He was trying to feed vegetables to namra…and when she didn’t he scolded her and she started crying. Geet kissed namra and looked at Maan holding spoon in his hand looking at them incredulously.
Geet: aarrghhh Maan…
Maan: kya? She was not eating vegetables…
And before even he could say a word further she shouted back, “tho iska matlab you will start doing atyachaar on them han? Bolo..mera muh kya dekh rahe ho? Aisa koi karta hain kya? You actually made her cry you monster….“
[so does that mean you will start torturing her then han? Tell… you are you looking at my face like that? you actually made her cry you moster]
Dia was hiding under the table because she knew if she was caught Maan will make her eat all of those veggies too. Namra was caught..she had to pay! She heard geet and slowly peeped out and giggled seeing geet shout at Maan!!! Maan noticed dia and turned to her, “so..you were hiding here han..badmash!“
Dia giggled and ran and hid behind geet.
Maan: dia…come out….
Dia stuck to geet while geet some how managed to pacify a crying namra. Maan rolled his eyes and went around geet and pulled dia out holding her hands.
Dia made a pout, “nahi khana papa..plleeejj..”
[wont eat papa..pllleeejjj]
Maan lifted her up with his one hand and held the bowl in the other, “kaise nahi khaogi mein dekhta hoon…. Eating vegetables is good for health.”
[I’ll see to it how you wont eat… eating vegetables is good for health]
He carried her to the couch and made her sit there. Geet managed to calm namra down and held the glass of milk for her. she wondered where was Anisha and why was Maan doing everything all alone. That was really not giving her a good feel..like there was something she doesn’t know. Namra was still sobbing.
Geet: na beta…good girls don’t cry na..chalo be brave.
Namra gave a weak smile and sipped milk in installments.
On the couch..maan was having tough time to feed dia.
Maan: dia…finish your food…
Dia shook her head, playing with the cushion, “naaah…“
Maan just put the bowl aside and started tickling her. dia rolled on the couch laughing. Maan was having super fun!
[you wont eat?]
Dia (laughing): na….
Maan tickled harder, “ab bhi nahi?‘
[not even now?]
Dia just kept on laughing….her giggle filled the air..geet’s attention was diverted towards little dia. She was so awed by those two cuties..and Maan’s smile..she felt she could just look at him forever and ever and ever…..realization stuck her….. he was married and he was the father of two kids..and what was she doing there? She pushed aside the thought for the time being and concentrated on her work. Namra was better now. Maan managed to feed dia and went to chage as he was to leave for office. Dia ran and hugged geet!
Dia: you came angel…
Geet nodded smiling. Namra smiled and placed a kiss on geet’s cheek!
Namra: chalo angel… we will play…
Both of them pulled geet to their room. She just followed them. Dadima stood by the door watching all the events. Somewhere her wish was coming true! She recalled the day she had put forward Maan and geet’s rishta in front of Jasmeet…she had done it without asking Maan because she knew geet was just the best for Maan… and the glow on geet’s face…the happiness in jasmeet’s eyes.. and in a flash everything changed!!! Maan had put forward his will to marry Anisha… and geet..she had smilingly supported him throughout! How much will she do for him? Dadima knew this was one of the reasons for geet leaving them and going away. But if possible..she will like to see Maan and geet happy together…they will be happy together..they are happy together,..she can guarantee that!!!!
Geet was playing with the kids when her phone vibrated with aryan’s name flashing on it. She didn’t even think twice and disconnected the call. She got few more calls from her office and she declined all of them and finally switched off her cell. More than that..the thing that was bugging her was Anisha’s absence. It was evening and she had to leave. She got so close to the girls in one day itself that she didn’t want to go..but she didn’t know how right she was!! She decided to leave when she collided with Maan..getting into the suit.
Geet was lost in deep thought… there was no sign of Anisha anywhere around. She was not sure whether to ask about their mother to the kids..but then thought otherwise. It was evening she there was no Anisha… she was with the kids all the time so she couldn’t even ask Dadima about it. But she was really curious…she was going away lost in her thoughts when she collided with Maan!
He looked tired…and that rich corporate look of his..ohh god.. she couldn’t believe she still felt like drooling on him! But she had an important question to ask too. He smiled at her and she popped the question, “Maan..where is Anisha di?‘
That was sit! His heart contracted!!! Where is Anisha? He went numb…Anisha.. millions of memories flashed in his mind….he hadn’t spoken about her for god knows how long!!! Tears threatened his eyes… and his smiled just vanished! Geet just watched his expressions change into a painful one! she couldn’t understand where did she go wrong? Why was he sad? Is something wrong? She raised her hand to reach him.
He pushed away her hand and walked into the bedroom..Shutting the door with a bang! Geet just watched him… unable to understand what just happened! She turned around to see Dadima standing near her!! geet gave her a questioning look and Dadima pulled her made her sit on the couch.
Geet: Dadima..anisha di kahan hain? meine unhe kabse nahi dekha…
[Dadima where is Anisha di? I haven’t seen her for so long]
Dadima: I have seen that restlessness in you geet..since the time you have come here!! You really want to know where is Anisha?
Geet: yes Dadima..why the kids alone? Why Maan is alone? Di kahan hain Dadima?
Dadima held her hands, “if I tell you where is Anisha.. will you come back to us geet?‘
Geet didn’t know what to answer. She was here because Maan wanted her to be..but after this…she didn’t even have the tiniest idea what to do..but she really did want to know where was Anisha! and maan’s reaction to her question was something very shocking to her
Geet: Dadima.. please bataiye Anisha di kahan hain….
Dadma took a deep breath in and spoke bluntly, “she was killed in an accident a year and a half back geet….“
next: maan..did you think about our proposal?
