CHAPTER 6- RUSH HOUR
“shit…”, geet pushed maan back to the corner and knew she has to distract them. She looked here and there and pulled her frills up, revealing the thigh pads she wore with her pistol tugged within. She took out two and threw one at him, “use…when needed…”
He caught it but glared at her, “geet…you are not going… get back…”
But she was already gone! He closed his eyes..this girl was too damn stubborn! For the first time he felt bad that his security came at the cost of her life! He looked at his hand with which he had held her arm sometime back, and found it smeared with blood! He gasped…she was bleeding… so the first bullet had pierced her arm. There was no way he was going to let her out in the danger..she didn’t even have any guards on! And there was definitely no way he was willing to wait till Rajit evacuated the party and came to his rescue.
Geet was swift and she was clever. She hid herself behind the pillars and checked on their position. For now..she could see only three people.. there could be more. She had to be careful. She just waited to buy some time till rajit and team reached them evacuating the guests from the party..and for that she needed to deceive them. She reloaded her pistol and peeped out a bit to check on maan. He wasn’t visible though for she had come a bit far from him and looked around.
Maan looked at the gun he had in his hand… she was out there all alone and he was unsure whether going out to help her would be a good idea at all. he wanted to help for she was more in danger than he was in… yet he didn’t want to be a liability for her either. He trusted her skills but still he was worried of her safety. He heard footsteps and quickly pulled himself back into the dark.
And opportunity comes faster for the patient. She heard footsteps and it was time to lure them. she quickly took a step out and stood right in front of the masked man, aiming right on his chest. Before he could react, she shot him and the sound of the fire did the trick.
Maan peeped out to see what happened for the distant sound of the bullet had made his heart skip. The first person came to his mind was geet. This was a frustrating moment… he could neither do anything to risk his life for which geet was fighting and he couldn’t even open fire…he had no idea what they could do. But he was surprised to see the man run towards the direction of the sound. That means, it had to be geet, shooting. He reloaded the pistol and quickly followed the man, trying to be as inconspicuous as possible.
Geet quickly made a dash towards the lawn so that she could buy time for maan as well as the others and she knew she’d be followed. She heard one of them shout, “there..follow them..”
Damn those heels! She had to act fast. These were the attackers that were after maan’s life. She looked for a cover for now they had started firing at her. She swiftly dodged the aim and hid behind a tree and tried to shoot. There were a few more…just like she had expected and with the high security here…there must be someone who had let them in because no one here came unscrutinized. She was luckily with maan and he had been spared of the procedure along with her and dev.
She knew she was being surrounded. She shot another one and hid again. She tried to reload her pistol but it wouldn’t. She quickly checked the magazine… F*ck! Out of bullets! She didn’t have spare bullets for the other gun was with maan. They were closing up and she had to get out of this. She looked around and made a dash towards the darker side where lesser lights illuminated. She threw her heels on the way that made it difficult for her to run and rushed faster. A few of them followed while the someone fired at her. Fortunately, she had slipped and fallen down to escape the shot.
“ouchhh…”, she felt her ankle hurt and she looked back. They were close. Shit! She has to do something.
“come on Rajit… make it fast…”, she called out mentally.
She somehow managed to stand up and suddenly felt a hand drag her down behind a bush. She was startled…attacker!!! she curled her fingers into a fist and thrust a punch right on her attacker’s face making him wince in pain!!
“arrghhh you crazy moron…”, he dropped his gun and held on to his nose.
Her jaws dropped down to the ground and she gasped, “Maan??? Ohh dear… “
She quickly pulled him closer to her by his shoulder and checked on his nose and whispered, “am so sorry…i thought it was an attacker…”
She quickly scanned their surrounding and sighed..maan had pulled her amidst some bushes where they were not visible.she knew they were searching for them.
“oww…it hurts you pig…do you have to hit me all the time??”, his nose still hurt.
She cupped his face and checked on his nose,“i said am sorry… it was just a reflex…and what the hell are you doing here? For god’s sake, they are after you…”
He caressed his nose and glared at her, “when i tell you not to run away.. why the f*ck do you run?”
“its my job Khurana..and how dare you call me a pig?”, she snorted.
“bloody hell..you broke my nose..yes pig because you are pigheaded geet”, he fumed.
“and you deserved it for venturing out alone… you fool..”
“yeah right… and you were intelligent enough to run out of your own.. look at your pathetic condition…”, he retorted back sarcastically.
“i am trained for this okay…”
“yeah i can see that..had i not pulled you out of the way, you would have been dead by now.”
“I didn’t ask you to pull me out…”
She stopped and got alert when the nearing footsteps and glared at maan, almost ready to murder, “great..they found us…aur chillao…”
He gritted his teeth, “as if you were kept in silent mode…pig..”
She reached closer and pressed her hand over his mouth, “shh…they have found us i guess..”, she quickly looked around and grabbed the gun that he had been carrying, “..and when i say run… RUN and don’t just follow me like a dog…”
He wanted to retort but she didn’t let him for she pressed her hand tighter on his mouth. He sighed..her hands were so soft! He wondered how come such tender hands could handle guns! Oh wait! He had been knocked out by those hands twice already… who the hell was he complimenting!
She pulled away her hand from his mouth, aiming to shoot when he just registered, “but geet..your ankle..”
She had fired already. Damn this woman… does she even listen to anyone…like ever?
“Maan RUN…”, she pushed him out of the bushes and herself ran towards the men, ready to shoot them.
He got up and watched her run into the attackers all by herself. He shook his head, “damn you woman…there’s something called brain…”
She hid behind a tree, firing when her eyes caught him, running towards her. F*ck! Kill him…someone please kill him!
“Maan…go away…”, she screamed.
He threw away his coat and dashed towards her…and he was fast. She was aiming at someone when he pushed her away. She couldn’t believe this! This man was crazy… stupid enough to embrace death by all means! She glared at him but he had no time. He held her hands and ran. she had no choice by now but to run. Her ankle hurt..it was sprained she guessed.
The attackers followed them towards the party hall and geet did turn back to fire at them but thankfully Rajit and others were already present in the hall to back them up. His security were up on their toes and the attackers knew they were outnumbered. It was clever to retreat for now. Rajit and rest followed them while geet glared at maan, “what the hell is your problem? Why don’t you quietly do what you have been asked to? Do you know what could have happened when you jumped in between dragging me out??“
She waited for him to react but he just dusted himself and walked out, dragging her.
“hey… whats wrong with you? Can’t you hear? Mr Khurana…where are you dragging me…”
He pushed her into the car with force which made her angrier. What the hell does he think of himself? He closed her side of the door and sat beside her.
“what the hell was that Khurana.? Answer me damn it…”
“Shut Up!!!”, he barked, with his voice gone rude, “chup chap baithi raho..am not answerable to you whatsoever!”
“what the hell…”
He glare at her, “Just Shut up! And keep your mouth shut till we get home..”
His tone was so serious…he seemed angry. She had never seen him serious at all in these days she had been with him and now…he was behaving so rudely! She looked away from him fuming… this man was nuts! She was here to help him out..and instead of being grateful, he was being rude! To hell with this foolish man!
next: fight continues
