PART 18


PART 18

sorry for the late update
was stuck with loads of work here n there

“I want to meet you today itself Arjun!”

She heard him laugh and reply back, “fine then… meet me around 9pm in my office.”

Geet disconnected the call and looked at the time.. it was going to be 5pm. This bas**** actually tried to mess up with her. she’d make sure he tasted dirt.

——————————————————

 

Maan was held up with his meetings but still he managed to give her a call. He was getting a little worried for her now… especially when there were so many rumours in the market. Not that he doubted her ability, but he knew his professional limits. Technically, he was a rival… in fact everyone is a rival in the market, even the closest of your friends but he was tied down by his heart. he so much wanted to help her out… he knew she was too efficient but probably she was facing such a situation for the first time. His mind came up with a very diplomatic reason to calm his heart–he wouldn’t help her until she asked or she had been really in need.

 

Geet checked her phone…and sighed. She was on her way to arjun’s office right now. Sasha drove into the grand premises of his office and guessed it could be maan’s call. Geet stared at her screen for a while and then disconnected the call. She checked the call log.. there were 5 missed calls from nisha that she had avoided taking. As they waited for the lift to reach their desired floor, Geet breathed in sharply and switched off her phone.

“ma’am… are you sure you want to meet him now?”, Sasha stopped, right before they walked out of their lift.

“its now or never Sasha… I have to take the risk…”, Geet spoke coldly, probably getting the premonition already.

They walked slowly and stopped right in front of arjun’s cabin. The entire floor was deserted… it was clear that working hours were over.

“I don’t get a good feeling ma’am.. lets get back..”

Geet knocked the door and heard his reply. She turned back once before getting in, “no matter what happens… don’t you dare poke your bloody nose into it.”

“but ma’am…”

“thats an order Sasha… stay away. I know this jerk really well.”

Sasha was totally surprised to see this side of Geet. she guessed what might just happen… it seemed evident but she couldn’t even defy Geet, knowing she will actually cut her throat if she disobeyed her. she stood outside, holding her breath while Geet went in to face him.

 

Arjun sat on his desk looking into some files when a sly smile crept on hi lips, sensing the movements in the room.

“good evening Geet… please take a seat..”

“just cut the crap and come straight to the point arjun…”

He kept the files down and checked her out. She looked absolutely stunning in those black formal pants, crisp while shirt and those sexy stilettos. Her bosom moved rhythmically indicating the power in her breathing as her nostrils flared in sheer disgust and anger, seeing that lusty look of his. She still hadn’t forgiven him for that night in the Paris bar. He was ditching jazz and she’d make sure jazz knew the truth about this jerk.

“hey why do you get so over worked sweetie… sit down and lets have a peaceful talk..”

She could not believe his sweet talks… she knew his intentions quite well from the very beginning she had met him. but she was here to talk and she just couldn’t take risk. She sat down throwing the files on the table.

“so.. whats going on in your mind?”

He stood up and walked towards the window, looking out to the night sky, “just making sure I reach to the top of the world..”

She rolled her eyes, “and pray why me?”

He smiled… a very mean smile it was as he walked across the room and stood behind her, “you really wanna know?”

 

She sat straight not even moving an inch or even turning back to look at him..she didn’t even falter or even get scared. He leaned over her shoulder, while his hands rested on the arm rest and whispered into her ears, “I wanted…”

She stilled feeling his fingers slide down her cheek and his voice dropped husky, “… to have you…”

She clenched her fists hearing that when he immediately diverted the topic, “… I needed that land badly… and I approached your dad for it too… politely.. but who knew you were so much of a bi***… refusing to sell that resort…”

She just wanted to turn back immediately and give him one tight slap. She stood up in a jerk and turned to execute her plan. But he had perhaps guessed her moves. He held her hands and pushed her against the wall nearby and pressed himself hard against her, pinning her down. She shot him a glare and tried to push him away. She hated his touch… it was filthy, disgusting… in short it was nothing more that sh*t.

 

“let go…”, she warned him, grinding her teeth.

He smirked and pressed her harder on to the wall, pinning her hands, right above her head. His one hand held her while the other slid down and dug into her cheeks, “do you realize what losses I had to bear just because of you?”

She didn’t even avert her gaze from him. her eyes spitted fire and her face showed disgust. She was not scared… she knew she could take on him but what she forgot was her being a woman..as nisha had stated. The more she struggled to set herself free, the more he pressed her down with his entire body resting on her.

“arjun.. Let Go of me…you bas****..”

His fingers dug deeper into her cheeks, while his lips hovered over hers, “I like those swear words from your mouth…if you look so tempting just like this.. I wonder how you are in bed…”

She felt like puking on his face. Though she had faced situations where men tried to press her down, she had managed to show them their right place. But today she was in such a situation where she suddenly felt so helpless. She moved her head away to create a gap between their lips. She was somewhere reminded of maan today… and then there was this disgust for arjun. There was a sudden intense feeling of just getting touched by maan… she didn’t know why it was.. why she felt but yes she accepted that she liked it with him and there was no way she’d allow that arjun to even touch her. those feelings were so unknown to her yet those feelings seemed to give her courage to fight.

“you really don’t know who are you messing with Arjun…”

 

He pulled her face closer to him…he wasn’t even letting her move her legs. His eyes fell on those curves that were rising and falling with her breath and again looked back into her eyes, “I am dealing with one sexy bi*** who really knows how to get her benefits from people around you.. ain’t I right sweetie?”

She shot him a deathly glare that seemed to do nothing to make him falter. Her eyes widened when she felt his lips getting closer to hers. There was this intense feeling again… her heart beat faster and faster and she tried to push him away. She hated every bit of this suffocating place. She felt him too close to her and that’s when she heard him speak, “so how many nights with maan han???”

 

Before she could even formulate his words, she felt his lips on hers… shocking her with his disgusting act. She definitely hated it… she tried to move her head aside…but he pressed his lips harder on hers, biting them savagely. She sealed her lips tighter in order to stop whatever was happening… she wriggled harder and he bit her harder, trying to get an entry.

She felt so helpless for that one nano second when she was reminded of maan… she stilled herself completely, making herself numb so that he could just let her go. But arjun was far from even the thought of letting her go. He had laid his eyes on her from day one. It was she who had started the game that day… so he should enjoy it as well. he was getting irritated with her constant denial which made him squeeze her cheeks, almost to the extent of bleeding them. but her resistance was something that had started frustrating him now.

 

For Geet, maan was the only one who ran subconsciously in her mind. his kisses were always so…so…umm she tried to think of something appropriate…his kiss was something that she liked (totally not realizing they were out of sheer love)… and she was one person who wouldn’t like to mess up what she liked. Her kiss was definitely not made for arjun..she noted mentally.. not for anyone else too but maan. She gathered all her courage, all the strength she had and pushed him off her.

He was a little taken aback with that powerful push, yet he was a lion who had tasted blood.

 

“you are absolutely sexy honey,…”,he smirked, trying to get back on her.

She didn’t even stop herself…nor did she think of the consequence now. She just went ahead and rewarded him with one tight slap that actually stunned him. he felt that painful sting on his cheek and looked at her. she was fuming like a volcano. Her eyes were deep red… almost the color of blood and her wide eyes spitting fire like a dragon. He caressed his cheek, feeling humiliated with that slap.

“you dared to slap me…”

Before he could proceed further, she cut him in between, “yes..thats the reward for messing with Geet Handa…”

She wiped her lips with her hands and then looked at the same hand which had slapped him. she looked around and saw a flimsy wine glass kept on the table. She smirked and grabbed it in the same hand, “I dared to touch a filthy sh*t like you right… so I must get punished for it too..why should you be an exception?”

Her smile was deadly…he could feel that aura and the next moment he heard the cracking of glass right in her hands, making her palm bleed violently. But Geet looked straight into his eyes…she didn’t even flinch a bit… she probably didn’t even feel the pain.

“you are going to  pay for it…”

“to hell with it… “, she screamed and raised her bleeding hand to him, “this will definitely remind me of your not-so-innocent acts you tried to pull on me… and I will remember this Arjun… “

 

She took her files in one hand and walked out, angrily, leaving him thirsty for an eye for eye. She saw Sasha waiting for her anxiously. She sealed her expressions quite well.. she was really really mad now.

“ma’am…how…”

Before she could even continue, Geet shoved all the files in her hands and walked straight towards the lift. It was then Sasha noticed drops of blood on the floor and then traced it towards that bleeding hand of hers. She was shocked beyond imagination… she knew arjun must have tried something cheap on her but that cut on her hand seemed really deep and painful. But there was no expression on Geet’s face. She ran after her, “ma’am… stop.. you need first aid right now…”

 

She tried to reach her but it was a little late perhaps. The lift doors closed right on her face. She was too scared for Geet. It felt as if she never understood Geet at all.. and sometimes it felt she had started to understand this complicated bundle. She pushed the button a few times… she had to be with Geet. she looked here and there and then ran down the stairs. She ran out to the lobby, trying to find Geet and saw her going out of the premises. She followed her and saw her getting into a taxi. She called out louder, “ma’am…stop.. I will get the car…”

And to her utter surprise, she just heard a faint reply, “go home Sasha and don’t bother me till you get back to office tomorrow.”

Sasha saw her go away… she had never seen Geet like this. She knew Geet was quite revengeful but then her bleeding hand worried her to no ends. She didn’t know if it was a good idea to call home and tell nisha about it. knowing Geet, she knew Geet will fire her if she calls home. She got back home, wondering what might have happened. She knew Geet wouldn’t do stupid things… she was way too much practical and sensible, though she wouldn’t deny that she is insensitive to human feelings most of the time.

—————————————

 

It was post 00:30am when maan was distracted by a call he checked the time and received the call only to find a frantic nisha on the other end.

“Chachi… relax and tell me what happened..”

“maan… is Geet with you? Abhi tak ghar nahin aayi. She usually sends message that she will be late but aaj uska call bhi nahin lag raha.. tere saath hain kya beta?”

[she hasn’t returned home yet. Am not able to reach her… is she with you beta?]

He could very well sense nisha was probably in tears. He checked the time again..this girl really knows how to worry people.

“Chachi… she isn’t with me…in fact I haven’t seen her the whole day. We haven’t even spoken as well…”

He could hear nisha’s sobs by now, “what do I do with this girl? She hasn’t come back home from office yet…”

“relax Chachi.. did you call office?”, he was kind of guessing that she might be stuck in work.

“umm I did… but no one picked up the call… apparently no ones there in the office I guess..”

 

He checked the time again and really wondered where could she go at this time of night. he could very well remember the last time she had been out alone at night…she had been very disturbed that day. And that struck him… was she alright?

“I will look for her.. try to contact anyone from the office who you think stays with her throughout..her PA or someone…”

He disconnected the call and called Geet. she usually doesn’t miss his calls. But strangely her network was unreachable. He called office…but no one picked the call. It was going to strike 1am when he just dashed out of his study, slipping into a lose white shirt . the entire mansion was silent…he sneaked out quietly lest his mom woke up. He drove straight to her office. The roads were deserted…only a few vehicles around on the highway. He stopped in front of her office. It was totally empty as he headed to check on the watchman.

 

“sir..ma’am had already left the office at 8:30pm itself…”

He ran his fingers through his hair… she was definitely disturbed. He called her again but her phone was still unreachable. He felt a certain pang of fear in his heart… where could she go? He knew she was a little messed up… but then disappearing like that..he could have probably made his mind up to ransack the whole city when he saw nisha’s call again. he was getting restless… he just wished she was back home safely.

“Chachi I am looking for her…”

Nisha cut him in between, “meri Sasha se baat hui.. she had last been to arjuns office and after that she went somewhere in a taxi without telling anyone about it…”

[I spoke to Sasha… she had last been to arjun’s office…]

Arjun’s name just made him stiff…with his words playing in his mind. his heart beat faster… Geet was definitely in trouble he just knew it and if anything happened to her, he didn’t know what he’d do to arjun. He clenched his fists, trying to hold on to his sanity till nisha was calmer.

 

“Sasha also said she had been injured…maan am so scared… Geet kahan hogi..kaisi hogi…what do I do… I didn’t even tell anything to her father because of his health conditions…what do I do…”. and she broke down completely.

[where could she be… how would she be…?]

His temper reached a new height hearing all that… arjun was surely trying to play with fire. To hell with friendship… he is one cheap, disgusting bas****.

“Chachi… I will get Geet back…”

He just disconnected the call, boiling in sheer rage. If arjun would have even dared to lay his finger on her, he’d make sure he dies once and for all. He got into his car and drove madly towards arjun’s mansion on the other side of the city. He drove faster, fuming and seething in anger. The roads were clear and he knew he was just 10 minutes away from his house. he took a sharp and turn and then suddenly braked hard, realizing something. His mind was so so so much into Geet… how she was… if she was alright.. and that just struck him. he took a complete u-turn and drove straight towards their farmhouse.

 

“just be safe Geet…”, he kept on chanting all through the way until he stopped in front of the mansion. The house looked so dark from outside… probably she wasn’t there. not a single light flickered in the house. he started panicking by now… what if something happened to her? he shook his head as he felt the corners of his eyes burning. He had told nisha that he will always stand by her… and he couldn’t even save her. he held his breath and went towards the door and surprisingly found it unlocked. Was she there? the house was totally dark…he wondered if any soul was actually inside. but human heart tends to hold on to every little hope possible.. be it false ones. His heart was beating so fast…as he stepped inside. a sudden coldness surrounded him, making his scared like never before. He slowly went across the hall and switched on the lamps. He turned to the other side only to get a shock of his life.

 

There she sat in the corner of the couch, numb and so lifeless. It took him some time to realize that she was really there. he probably realized he was breathing now. He ran across the hall and hugged her tightly, kneeling down in front of her.

“where were you Geet? kahan chali gayi thi? Mein kitna darr gaya tha pata hain…”

[where were you Geet? where had you been? I was so scared you know..]

He realized for the first time in the last 45 minutes that he was alive. He hugged her tighter but then she was totally silent…very unlike her. she didn’t even hug him back… nor did he feel any movement from her. worried, he cupped her face and looked at her lovingly. She still sat there totally still.. not even blinking her lashes.

He caressed her cheek lovingly, “just never do this to me again jaan…”

And thats when his eyes fell on some red marks on her shirt…he looked at it carefully, realizing they were blood stains and then back at her expressionless face.

“Geet… what happened?”, frantic, he looked around and was stunned to see that awefully bleeding hand. It felt as if someone had stabbed his heart… for the first time in his life, Maan Singh Khurana was scared…so frantic…so restless. He held her hand gently, trying to analyse the seriousness of her injury, which did seem really bad. He gently turned her palm to check…and more than her, it was he who flinched in pain. He never even realized he had tears in his eyes.

 

“bahut dard ho raha hain?”, he asked painfully.

[is It hurting a lot?]

He looked at her…she still seemed to be lost in something. He took a closer look on her wound..there were still pieces of glass stuck in it… and a deep cut adorned her skin. The blood had probably dried up, post the platelet action. He felt like hugging her so tight and hide her away from the world that has hurt her. he had never felt this emotional ever… but love can make you do wonders. He dared to lift his other hand and pull out a shard from her skin.

He felt her flinch a bit and knew it hard hurt her. he knew it was Arjun who was responsible for all this”to hell with whatever reason behind such a thing. He lifted her up in his arms and carried her  to the bedroom. He just wanted her to feel safe…that was his first priority. And Geet was this upset… he didn’t even need any other reason to kill him. he made her sit on the edge of the bed and ran to get the first aid box. He sat  on his knees in front of her and started cleaning the wound. She did flinch a bit here and there and he kept on asking if it hurt too much. but she still remain quiet and aloof from everything. He bandaged the wound properly and looked up at her. she was, this time, looking at him. there were no emotions on her face but her eyes… he was probably seeing so many things in then for the first time ever. He didn’t know whether they contained questions or accusations or pain or love… but whatever it was it just made him go bonkers.

 

He cupped her face again and softly whispered, “was it Arjun?”

she was still the same…she was probably lost in some other world altogether. It was then he saw her swollen lips, upon checking her face carefully. His thumb rubbed her soft petals, as if trying to guess whatever had happened.

“did he…”, he firmly put forward his question and this time she did move her lashes up to meet his eyes. There was range, there was pain, there was disgust and then was love. she knew how she had been feeling all this while… craving for his touch, loathing that horrible touch… and she didn’t even realize when she lowered that barrier to him. his lips touched her softly at first. She whimpered and held his shirt. He pressed his lips a little harder and she just surrendered wilfully, trying to calm her senses.

Her eyes closed involuntarily, trying to take her mind off those horrible moments she had experienced. A feeling so intense… yet a feeling so unknown for her. she hated that kiss..but here it was so different. She was dying to be touched by maan… her maan… surrender herself to his touch…his kiss. How she wished he could just remove those horrible moments from her life. she had felt so lonely today and wandered to the farm house.

 

He kissed her fiercely, not even caring the fact that her hand had started hurting her, due to that hold. He couldn’t even stand arjun and he just… arrgh he didn’t want to think further. He was mad… angry… god knows for what.. Angry at Arjun for touching his jaan or at himself for not being able to protect her or the very fact that she was in pain.

He leaned forward on her as both fell on the bed with him on top of her, yet he was nowhere near to letting her go. She fought for her breath, almost moaning out his name.

“maan…”, she pushed him a little in order to take in air. But he was probably blinded with that love for her. he pulled her face to him and kissed her harsher again…as if trying to erase even the tiniest existence of his touch. His tongue swiftly darted out to taste her…as he rolled it over her lips. She moaned into his mouth, giving in… letting him know that even she had craved for his touch.. she had craved for him… and that she wanted him to remove every bit of impurity in her. she didn’t even realize when her heart had silently accepted him as hers and only hers.

His fingers laced with hers as he kissed her breathless… probably didn’t even want to let her go when he felt her warm tears touch his cheek. he stopped feeling that soft touch of that warm liquid. He left her lips and looked at her. her eyes were closed but a drop or two of her tears had rolled down. He had never seen this side of Geet… but he couldn’t see her so broken today. Before the tear could slip down on to the mattress, he caught the drop on his finger and looked at it. she slowly opened her eyes, watching him… she didn’t know what she was feeling but being with him was the best thing as of now.. it was the best thing in the whole world where no one knew where she was or no one even bothered what she was or she didn’t even have to put up a pretense.

 

“jaan…I won’t spare him…”

She didn’t let him complete. She just rose a bit and hugged him tightly. He sighed and held her firmly for a while. she felt much better… she loved the warmth of his body. She didn’t even straighten herself from his embrace when he carried her in his arms. She tucked herself closer to him till he made her sand on the cold marble floor.

She looked at him cutely… well something out of the world again, not wanting to let go of him. he smiled and placed a peck on her cheek, “go and freshen up…”

He walked back, closing the door. He sighed and sat on the bed, trying to calm himself. She was safe and she was with him and she is disturbed. Theres no way he was going to leave her life that. he heard nisha’s call and decided to let her know.

“umm..yes I found her Chachi..she is with me. I will get her back tomorrow morning…”

He sighed and went to get his dress from the cupboard when his eyes stuck at the washroom door, slowly gliding open. There she stood, clad in his loose shirt and trousers that almost drowned her in them. she looked tired and worn out… but she looked absolutely and cutely beautiful in that dress…which made him laugh and high…simultaneously.

PART 17

PART 17

Geet was pretty sure that shed definitely come up with some or the other plan but she didnt realize what she expected to be a cake walk, would turn into one of the biggest complications she had ever experienced. With the country battling recession and rupees dipping lower, it was getting tough to invest in market. Companies and withdrawing from investing in liquid funds and going international with dollar soaring sky high was a tough challenge. If she wanted to save the resort, she had to find a way to get the cash flowing in… and none of the investors seemed to be interested in risking themselves in something that yielded nothing.

—————————————————–

 

It was almost the end of a week and she was getting more and more entangled in the web with no way out. Whatever way she tried, seemed to have blocked her way someway or the other. The protests and disappointment were getting stronger while their counterpart left no stone unturned to squeeze them into the crisis. Geet could realize the extent to which Arjun had knowledge about their working around the globe. He had chosen time and scenario perfectly. Investors had started withdrawing their partnership from the handas owing to the crisis getting bigger each day… while the gossip spread around that Geet handa was incapable of handling crisis efficiently and that she should step Down from The post of the director. seven days were probably the turning point in everyones lives. Geet started to come back home late at night… Arjuns company was not leaving a single chance to grab those broken pieces from Geet… Market had other rivals too.

It was probably around 2 In the afternoon when maan called. She had been too held up to even breathe. She was getting into a lot of pressure from every direction…and she didnt even have time to think on anything else. Yes, she missed him at times but she just didnt get time. But his call was a breather. She kept her files away for the first time in those seven days and took the call.

hey hotshot…

Sasha was right beside… Geet had hardly taken any calls for the past few days and here she was taking initiative.. umm that was curious and hothot??

kahan ho tum? Are you alright?

[where are you?]

am stuck maan… keeping too busy!

Maan? Sasha wondered who maan was..for Geet usually stayed away from guys. But then something struck her… maan as in Maan Singh Khurana? She had met him during the conference and she was pretty sure there were together. even she had got the news of them being together in Goa!

will be right in your office in 10 minutes…

am busy maan..

9 minutes...

I dont think...

8 minutes…

She sighed, fine… am here in my cabin.

 

She disconnected the call and fell back on her chair. She was tried… she has to speak to arjun. If he was playing games then he has to know what he has gotten himself into. She closed her eyes and took a deep breath in. Shed no ways let that resort slip away… they had a lot of memories in them.

“hey hey…wake up sleepy head… dont slack off during office hours babe…”

She heard his voice getting closer and closer. Was it already 10 minutes? She opened her eyes to see him right in front of her. Sasha had excused herself to her cabin which was right beside Geets. Her eyes widened in surprised when she saw him there.

He leaned over Geet, who was seated on her chair, put his arms on the arm rest and pressed a longing kiss on her lips. His eyes fell on the specs she had worn and pulled them out, “tum ek hi week mein chashmish ban gayi? I loved the improvement sweety…,” and he pressed another sweet peck on her lips before sitting on the table.

[you became a chashmish just in one week?]

Sasha blinked a couple of times seeing them so close. Embarrassed, she just closed the blinds and sat there, trying to get a grip on herself, “he really is a charmer!!!”

 

“no… I just wear it occasionally…give it back maan…”

He held the glasses higher while she stood up, trying to get a hold of them.

goodness sweetheart… you have become so thin!!! Whats wrong with my tiger these days?

She eyed him quizzically wondering if he was actually worried or being sarcastic. She stood in front of him, crossing her arms across her chest, tum hi guess karlo…

[you guess it…]

He jumped down the table and kept the glasses properly on the desk. He wrapped his arms round her waist and pulled her closer, what is it Geet? you seem too tensed…

 

She looked up to him, hearing that seriousness in his tone. She wanted to tell him everything… and let him help her like he did while in Paris or every time else.. she knew his capabilities and she knew he will be able to help her out but then she stopped. It was her responsibility to make everything right and make her company trust her potential, she took a deep breath in, just too much work… so how come you are here suddenly?

umm.. you know you can talk to me about it tiger… I have come to take you out for lunch...

lunch?? How can I go…

shhh…, he kept his finger on her lips, silencing her, suddenly reminding her of that passionate night in his farmhouse. Seeing after so many days suddenly made her crave for his touch with so much force… she didnt know why it was happening but she loved it.

just shut your lovely mouth for once and come with me…

 

The office was surprised to see MSK in their premises and barge right into the directors cabin… they were shocked beyond limits to see them walking out together, with his hands holding her close round her waist. But both could just give a damn. The aura that surrounded them was too strong.. anyone would feel intimidated. They got into his car and drove to their destination. He stopped in front of one of his favourite 7 star hotels and walked her in. He had reserved the table in the exclusive lounge at the corner most side. It was a dimly lit room, giving the feel of a royal palace with its interior intricately designed. Geet was a little surprised seeing everyone smile at her. maan led to his preferred table and pulled out the chair for her. she loved the whole decor… actually everything. They sat there talking here and there when he called the waiter and whispered something to him. he smiled and walked away. Geet looked at him curiously.

what?, he asked, catching her gaze.

can you please explain.. ye sab chal kya raha hain?

[whats all these going on?]

relax Geet… youll get to know it in a few seconds..

 

She looked around to see people busy in their business… there was one table where a few ladies sat, talking and having their food… and suddenly everyones attention went towards the entrance. Geet looked at them curiously and them at maan who had a wide smile on his face.

turn back sweets…

She turned back only to see a three-tier chocolate cake standing right in front of her, with beautiful decorations of vanilla crme and one beautifully designed candle on the top. He leaned closer and pecked her cheek, happy birthday Geet…

It was then she realized it was her birthday… she had completely forgotten about it due to work. Her eyes widened in surprise while a smile crept on her lips. She could never forget their dinner date in Paris two years back… gosh it was already two years to it. she recalled nisha calling her to eat sweet before leaving for office but she had been too tensed to notice anything. She just turned 24 today. She felt so pampered… he remembered it.

 

you..remember my birthday?

how could I when I had stolen your first kiss that day in Paris…, he replied shamelessly.

She just loved that sweet surprise. She cut the cake without wasting a single moment and fed the first piece to herself. He wasnt even surprised… but he felt happy seeing that satisfaction on her face. The waiter served them cake slices on their plates.

serve the rest to everyone present in this hall…

right away sir…

he took some cream on his finger and smeared it right on the tip of her nose.

hey… what was that for?

my birthday gift Geet…, and laughed.

 

The waiter served cake to everyone present there. he served the cake to the group of ladies present there while they just couldnt stop sighing seeing the love. nisha was awed by it too. She was here with one of her friends and she was touched by the gesture.

can you tell me where they are sitting.. we must wish them too...

yes maam.. its the lady’s birthday sitting over there…, he pointed towards the corner table. Nisha looked towards the direction pointed and was surprised to see Geet with maan… she could very well remember his face. They were talking while the waiter poured champagne for them. she felt actually nice knowing very well that it might be maans plan. Though Geet never spoke anything about it, she could see slight changes in Geet.. she smiled and excused herself. She walked towards them slowly.. observing them… actually him!!!

Geet was enjoying her cake when she heard someone wish her, happy birthday beta…

thank… and she stopped seeing nisha in front of her, Chachi aap yahan?

Nisha smiled, yep… am glad that you are celebrating your birthday beta…

She turned to maan who was just a mute spectator of the event. She extended her hand to him, hey… you must be maan right? am Nisha… Geets Chachi..

 

Maan smiled as he shook hands with her.. he was awed by her grace. She, in no way, looked like Geets Chachi.. she rather looked like her sister. He offered her to sit while Geet excused herself to clean her cheeks that maan had smeared with cream. A few minutes went in silence, maan not knowing what to speak right at this moment whem nisha broke the silence, so, how do you manage my parkati?

He smiled hearing that naughty question, I tell you aunty… she is a tigress, hard to tame…

Nisha laughed and kind of liked his nature, call me Chachi beta… dont be so formal…

They talked here and there when nisha popped in a question, do you like her maan? Please be honest…

 

Maan looked at her worried face… he had realized nisha was a very warm person who loved Geet dearly. He held her hands and spoke gently, I love her Chachi…I love her a lot…

Nisha was surprised but then she sighed in relief.. at least someone loved Geet even after knowing her nature, you know her nature right… she wont even think twice before giving into her own will… she will be very cold at times… and rude but trust me… meri beti dil ki buri nahin hain…bas uska pyaar jatane ka tareeka alag hain

[my daughter is not bad at heart…but she has a different way of expressing it…]

Maan understood her unsaid words, Chachi…please dont worry… I will never leave her alone… I will do anything to keep her safe…trust me..

That was the confirmation that nisha had always wanted. She smiled and blessed maan. Geet just returned wiping her face. Nisha winked at Geet and whispered into her ears before leaving, youve got to tell me everything tonight…

 

Geet didnt even understand… tell her what? She ignored it and got back to her world. She probably had a very relaxing time with her hotshot…but something was amiss. She thought for a while… but then something was really amiss. They walked back to their car and she looked at him carefully. He pretended not to notice and drove her back to her office. This was really something that was bugging her. she was to get back into that suffocating place once again and maan was definitely not getting what she was trying to hint at. They entered the lift and pressed the button for the 15th floor.

 

Geet stood beside him, waiting for the door to close. One the doors closed, she felt him tug her hard on her arms and smack his lips right on hers. She smiled, immediately pulling him closer, kissing him back fiercely. Her tongue darted out to enter him while he just let her lead. His hands slid back to her back, cupping her bottom…she couldnt resist but moan a bit and instinctively wrap her one leg around his waist. He pushed her on to the wall and kissed her hard and long. The hidden passion was too volatile… a fire that didnt even take seconds to ignite… a drug that didnt even take time to show its effect.

umhh…, she writhed in discomfort when he left her all of a sudden, leaving her longing for more. She slowly opened her eyes to see him smirking at her condition. She twisted her lips and brought him close to her again, clutching him by his collar, trying to reach for his lips. He moved his head back and smiled, I’d love to kiss you again sweetheart but I dont want people to see us like this when the lift stops at the next floor…

 

He pecked her lips again and straightened himself. She corrected her dress and her smudged lipstick. The doors opened and she walked out to her cabin. She went a few steps ahead and found him missing. She turned back only to see him stand in the lift and smile at her.

maan…, she tried to call while the doors closed on her, making him invisible. She sighed… but she felt something… a weird feeling brewing up in her. what was that? something very restless… she slowly walked towards her cabin, still not able to get the images of the doors closing on his smiling face, out of her mind. she was distracted by Sasha, calling her to check on some stuffs.

She checked on the stock market… and so many things here and there but nothing seemed to give her relief. She was slowly realizing how deeply had arjun studied everything before making such a move. She fell back on her chair.. she didnt even seem to know why arjun was hell bent on troubling her. this was just getting tougher each day. The resort was in a mess… and other stuffs going haywire. She finally decided to go home after Sasha insisted. She sighed and looked out of the window as Sasha drove her back towards the mansion. She asked her to stop in front of a cafe so that she could grab something to drink. They both entered the place while Geet got a coke for herself. She gave her card for the payment.

 

The cashier swiped it and returned it back to her, sorry maam… this card is temporarily blocked..

She sighed realizing all her cards had been blocked. She just hated whatever was going on. Sasha was right beside her.

its okay maam.. Ill pay.., she took out some money.

That was a hit on her ego. She was definitely not going to let that happen and make her indebted to Sasha.

no stop… I will do it..

She fished her bag and found some cash. She paid with it and got herself a cigar with some more money. They walked out with the cigar between her lips. Sasha was quiet knowing Geet was in a very foul mood when she insisted on driving. Sasha kept quiet at the moment and let her do as she wished and sat on the passengers seat. Geet took to the steering with one hand while the other rested on the open window pane, with the burning cigar between her fingers. She didnt even bother putting on her seat belt and drove madly towards the handa mansion.

Sahsa didnt bother asking her or telling her anything. She just let her do whatever she wanted. Geet puffed in her cigar in between… lost amidst so many thoughts and sped faster.

 

Maan sat in his office, looking into some documents when he heard a knock at his door.  He looked up to see Arjun walking in with a smile. He actually hated that smile…but then he just kept his calm.

hey maan… yaar tu kahan rehta hain aaj kal..aur Goa se waapis kyun chala aaya achanak?

[hey maan… where had you been all these days and why did you come back from goa so suddenly?]

Maan ignored him taking his liberty to just barge in and sit without his permission. He kept the file away and looked at him coldly, I got some urgent work… so I had to leave on a short notice.

Arjun smirked as he played with the paper weight, urgent kaam tha ya Geet ke bagair dil nahi laga?

[was it that urgent or you missed Geet?]

its nothing as such Arjun…, maan tried to change the topic, so how come you are here?

come on dude… dont change the topic… everyone saw both of you together…must say, your choices are great… she is too hot…

He felt like punching this moron right away. He banged his hand on the table, if you really dont have anything sensible to talk about, please leave…

thats interesting…why do I feel that you are in love with her dude?

I have got some work arjun.. I dont wanna talk about stupid things…just leave

He tried to maintain his composure just for old times sake… or else he wouldnt even think twice before killing him.

hey hey chill..am leaving. But dont make her your weakness buddy… you might have to pay heavily…

He walked away leaving a fuming maan. He wanted to beat the hell out of this guy. He wondered how a jerk like him could even become his friend? He had seem that smirk on arjuns face…after Geet, he had probably never touched a single woman.  No one had ever made him feel differently… and that was achieved by Geet. he just knew from that very moment that she was the one. He could just kill anyone to have her safe and sound, with arjun NOT being any exception.

 

Geet walked in to the dark hall, still playing with that cigar. It was around 11:30 at night and mansion was just too silent. She blew out the smoke arrogantly when nisha pulled it away and threw it, what is this Geet? you’re smoking?

Nisha was waiting for Geet when she had seen her with that cigar. She was shocked to see her like that.

Chachi… for gods sake can you just leave me alone?, she bit out coldly and walked into her room. Nisha followed and stopped her, holding her hand, no… I wont leave you alone. Do you realize what you are getting yourself into? Aur… aur ye kya haal bana rakha hain apna?

[and what have you done to yourself?]

Geet was in no mood to listen to anything. She ignored her words and went to get her change of clothes. Nisha pulled her in a jerk to face her, Geet… listen.. I know you are stressed out and under a lot of pressure… but beta… can you just for once step out of this mess… you can hand over the resort to arjun for a while and later deal it back…kya zarurat hain itni raat bahar rehne ki… aur itna stress lene ki? Why cant you just take a simple route for once?

[why do you need to stay out so late at night… and taking so much stress? ]

I am not selling it Chachi.. and I will come out of this mess.. dont worry..

 

But nisha was nowhere near letting her go. She held her hands firmly, how can I not care when I hear so many things being spoken about you? So many accusations and you are just keeping quiet like this? Geet… I will tell you honestly today…the world which you are in is very very dirty. I know you are strong… but we are women beta… there are so many limitations on us… and those people will never think even once before shattering you into pieces…

Chachi… I wont break… and I will not let them go away easily…

That spark in her eyes were dangerous… nisha didnt know how to make her understand. She wanted Geet to have a normal life like any other girl of her age… and not get into such stuffs but Geet had been entangled so badly in the mess.

 

Geet…I want you to live a normal life beta...

this is my life Chachi… please dont stop me..

She didnt even wait for nisha to say something else. She went into her washroom and shut the door with a bang, letting nisha know her verdict. Ana was just outside Geets room when she heard the argument. She went in and saw a tearful nisha.

maa… please dont stop di. Let her do what she wants… she will come out of this...

Nisha  wiped her tears, I know even you want to join Geet…mind you Ana dare not think on those lines. I dont want my daughters to suffer..

but ma…

 

Nisha walked away, not wanting to have another argument with Ana. She so much wanted Geet to step down from this mess… at least for a while. things were getting complicated and Geet was not even ready to negotiate.

The next day was not welcoming for Geet either. She was not even ready to talk to her dad, thanks to her sky high ego and her will to prove herself. She was getting too irritated…for the first time, failing to do something. Mohinder kept a tab on her but he didnt want to get in unless Geet realized where she lacked. He knew the scenario was getting worse…but his health wasnt permitting him to even move out of the bed. He just wished everything became normal and Geet was out of this mess real real soon. his failure to save his daughter from being the victim was making a mockery of his fatherhood.

 

Geet threw away the file…unable to take it any longer. She had to meet that arjun to clear things up and try to find a solution to save her company. She dialled his number and he picked it up in just one ring.

hey Geet… how have you been?, he sounded sarcastic. Geet took in a deep breath and tried to gulp down her anger, I want to meet you…today!

I am busy baby… I have got meetings lined up..you have to wait.., he tried to play with her.

I want to meet you today itself Arjun!

She heard him laugh and reply back, fine then… meet me around 9pm in my office.

Geet disconnected the call and looked at the time.. it was going to be 5pm. This bas**** actually tried to mess up with her. shed make sure he tasted dirt.
