It was night. Geet was walking restlessly in garden what to give Maan as she could not buy card. Now it was night and Maan would not allow her to go out. she was not getting any idea. suddenly she saw some leaves and flowers on ground. ” idea” she run inside. she went kitchen and took some papers scissor, pens and some more things. run to her room and kept everything on floor. she remembered in Orphanage she had learnt making some crafts like paper flowers and ribbon bows. she took scissors and cut white paper in flowers shape. Took shiny cloth piece and cut it like ribbon and made some bows. took a blank white paper and derw some flower frame with red and black markers. then glued paper flowers and bow on it. cut some alphabets from news papers and paste on card along with some hanging ribbons. she decorated card with rice and cinnamon and inside wrote Thank you , beautifully she wrote To Maanji n From Geet. she looked finished card. it was not that lavish and shiny but looking cute. she smiled. tomorrow morning when Maan would be in gym, I would keep it in his room. she thought and slept, dreaming about what Maanji will say in reply….
Geet opened her eyes. she had beautiful dream about Maan smiling and saying thanks to her for card. she jumped from bed and took card. it was time for Maan leaving his room. she hurriedly run upstairs and stopped before his room. she was hesitating opening it. she did courage and peeped inside. Room was empty. she entered and looked for proper place to keep so Maan could see easily. she found place near his laptop. she was going to keep when heard a sound. Maan was coming back…
She started sweating. Maan would not like entering anyone in his room. she could not keep card but stood there numb. she had no time and mind to find a proper place to hide. Maan entered and shocked. he looked her like lion and she shrunk like a furry rabbit with moist big eyes. she kept hand behind not to show him card. Maan watched her then observed her hand. she was hiding something he knew.
” Geet.. what u hiding behind ” he asked.
,” kuch nahi ” she said meekly
Maan stepped before her. she was moving back in fear but he was fast. she stopped knowing there was no escape. he was very close to her, looking her pale face. he held her arm and pull front. she let him do what was doing. She was having something in her stomach like it was noising inside. Her heartbeat became drum and mind was being so hot and spinning. He brought her hand front and saw a paper. he frowned and pull card . Geet found herself free and run, feeling shiver and also embarrassment as she knew, it was very childish gift to make a cheap card for millionnaire. she could not face him.
Maan looked paper. it was an envelop. he took out card and saw. his eyes became shiny and lip made a curve shape. he looked it very lovingly like it was most precious thing in world. he caressed every part of it, making it feel to him. he turned back, thinking she might be peeing from door but she had gone. he kept card in his cupboard and went to washroom.
Geet was in kitchen thinking how Maan would have reacted. she cursed herself for running away from there and now not even could ask him directly. Maan came and sat for food . nakul and Geet served and left. Geet step was very lazy like was troubling to raise it. her attention was to him and Maan knew it. she used to make her every emotion very transparent so any one could understand easily. and for Maan, it was easiest job to do. he was enjoying her restlessness. he did food and left. he stopped on gate and called nakul to bring his file in car. . he felt a heavy gaze on him from behind. He knew Geet was watching him. he smirked and left. half heartily, making weird faces Geet went to table. she was picking up plates when caught a small note. she picked and read ” Geet it was best gift I ever had. thank you. from Maan ” she smiled. her heart was dancing and mind was flying beyond cloud 9. she was very delighted and happy. she run out but Maan had left. she kept note in her room safetly..she run in kitchen and started Maan favorite dishes. she would send Maan tiffin in office, she decided….
Geet was in kitchen when guard informed pinky had come. Geet welcomed her and brought inside her room. As guard knew pinky he let her come inside. Both chatted and pinky gave books. Geet was so much happy as could not describe. She with full heart thanked pinky. Books were not very new as had been already used but for Geet, it was her hidden wish, A Untouched Desire of her. Pinky left soon as had to reach office. Geet kept book lovingly on table, fondled , made plan to cover paper on it in night.
Maan was in cabin when got a call. “hello”
“Maanji” he heard Geet sound. He surprised. “ Geet ??” asked
“ji” Geet said.. ” wo are in office ?? ”
“hmm..why ?? ”
“wo.. wo.. your lunch ” she was hesitating like hell ..
“ Geet .. I dont have lunch ..you know na.. ”
“wo.. maine aapke liye banaya tha ” she said..
Maan felt his heart got light. Something he heard what did not since long, in his desert life no one was there to care for him.. “ hmm . Thik hai Geet.. send it ” he said and cut. Geet was very happy. She fast run and took tiffin out and gave to driver. Maan had it and cherished…
