“You here?” Geet was scared more than shock. She closed the door in a rush. “How did you come inside?” Then she smirked, “Oh Yes! How can I forget that you have a partnership with Uncle? You must have come to take money for your work? But Poor uncle does not know that you have left the work unfinished.” Geet wanted to get out of her heart but stopped.
“Hmm, I thought I should get my money before you kill your uncle,” Maan answered with the same tone.
“Go from here Maan” she was calm now. She was tired. She sat on the bed feeling exhausted.
“Come with me Geet. I have turned off all the cameras. No one will know about you. You can start a new life, completely changed. What you are going to do is simply foolish. I will not let you get into this swamp.” He lifted his hand up to comfort her but she stood up and smiled, “I have already fallen into this swamp Maan. Now I can’t get out of here. And you are also involved in this. Why then you want me to stay away from this hazard.” She questioned.
“Geet because I..” He stopped in mid hearing someone’s footsteps outside. Then a knock on the door, “Geeta, Sir has come back. Get dinner for him” It was guard.
“Go back Maan, I am not coming back with you” Saying she left the room. Maan was in real tension seeing her in this state. He was determined to stop her from doing anything serious.
Geet was serving dinner to her uncle. Earlier it used to be her favourite work but now, extreme hatred was involved. Pratap was not paying any attention to her. He was busy talking over the phone. He was looking tense.
Geet tried to hear or understand what or whom he was talking but couldn’t understand. If it was earlier, Geet would have immediately asked who was coming. But this situation was different. She was standing there silently. Pratap gestured to her to go from there. Geet left the place yet their talks she can hear from the kitchen.
“Yes, yes, of course, you are welcome. Heard a lot about you from the commissioner. They praise you very much. I have also heard that there is no brave and honest officer like you in the police department.” Pratap was talking with a fake tone, Geet knew. She guessed someone very important was visiting him tomorrow.
“Geet was a part of my heart. No one can take her place. But we have to move forward.” Pratap said, showing sorrow in voice. It provoked smirking over Geet’s lips.
“What time will you come tomorrow? at noon? Okay. I will wait for you” Pratap cut the call. He left his unfinished dinner and rushed to his study. He locked the door. Geet was surprised that who made him this much worried? Then she finished her leftover work and now, she had to get the gun inside. “It is the right time” she thought. She had to complete her purpose before weakness got over her mind.
She went to the kitchen. The way she had come inside that day, with the same
Method, she went out. She reached the place where the gun had been hidden, but she was shocked not finding it there. Geet searched everywhere. “It will definitely be Maan” she understood. “Never mind, I will fulfill my purpose, anyhow. ” She knew where Pratap used to keep his gun. She returned back to her room. Although she did not want to sleep, she fell asleep as soon as she went to bed.
Next morning, she had been commanded to start the work early, to clean the house well and to cook quality lunch before noon. Someone special was coming. Pratap himself was busy in his study since morning. He was talking over the phone, preparing the document and files and don’t know what else..
At 12 at noon, guard told over the intercom that the person had arrived. Frightened Pratap came out to welcome the person.
“Welcome, welcome” Pratap greeted him. He was very nervous in the heart but showed fake glee. They came inside. Geet was waiting to see who it was? He was standing behind the curtain so Geet was not able to see him.
“Anyone there? Bring tea?” Pratap called.
Geet was all prepared with the tray. She could see him from behind while walking on. Tall height, strong well-set body, wearing a white shirt with black trouser,
“He is Maan!!” she was shocked from the bottom of her heart.
