Geet also went after him downstairs, in Maan’s room where she had seen him playing with his gun yesterday. She looked around carefully. Then picked up a gun with trembling hands. She never drove a gun in her life. Yes, she had definitely seen one with Uncle, who he used to keep at home for his protection.
“It’s not your cup of tea” Maan was standing behind with folding arms over his chest.
“Will you teach me?” She aimed the gun toward him.
“What will you do learning it? Killing your uncle?” Slowly Maan came forward and took the gun from her hand. “And what will happen after that? The police will arrest and hang you and the game will be over?”
“No, I will tell everyone what he did to me. How did he cheat on me. I will show his real face to the world” Anger was obvious on her face, turning it red.
“What truth will you tell the world? That you killed him because he murdered you?” Maan laughed. “You are forgetting that Geet is not dead! You are alive. And who will listen to you? Prataap Singh is a big name. Police adulate him. You really think the police will help you go against him?”
“You’re probably right. But I have to take revenge on him. I don’t want to leave him like that” The anger of her eyes turned into tears. ”
“You don’t know Maan, When my parents passed, I was a child. He never let me remember my parents ever. He did not even marry to raise me. Although he could do it. I even asked him why he doesn’t get married but he said that if he has children of his own, his love will be divided. He used to love me so much that…” She came out of her memory lane. “If he wanted my property, they would have asked for it once, I myself would have given it to him. Why did he need to do this to me.” Geet had completely broken down.
“Did he love anyone?”
” Hmm, he loved a girl, He came to India leaving everything behind in London. Even his love. Only for me ” Geet said while wiping her tears. “But He never told me much about her. I only know her name was Lakshmi, nothing else”
“Why did he do this Maan?” her emotions were getting out of control now. “Can’t you help me?” she caught his collar.
“I think you should take some rest. Go to your room. I bring something to eat for you” Maan tried to cool her down.
“I don’t need anything” She shouted. “ Not from anyone. Even you” She ran to her room yelling.
In her room, She fell on the bed and started crying. “No one helps me, even you God!” Her grief then turned into strength “okay, if no one is going to help me, I will help myself. I will take my revenge. I will not leave you uncle” her eyes were burning fire the same as her heart. Whole night she spent with open eyes.
His attention was broken by the sound of the window. It was shaking with the wind. When she had probably slept, she didn’t know. She walked and closed the window. Then she came and opened the door when she found a letter on the ground.
“Geet, I am going to the city for urgent work. It will be late at night to come back. ‘Maan’”
“How can he leave me alone?” Geet was scared at first that she is completely alone in this forest. But then she remembered the promise she has made to herself.
“No Geet, you shouldn’t have to be afraid of anything now. What you are going to do, you can never do it with fear. And why so much trust in Maan? Who is he? Only a criminal ? Who can do anything for money? I should not trust anyone now. Anyway, it’s good Maan is not here. Now I can easily do what I have to do”
She took a deep breath. She prayed to God for her success. She went into Maan’s room and picked up a gun and left the place.
