Nakul came Maan room to call him for dinner. Maan nodded. He wanted to avoid Geet question again and so decided to do everything, like she wanted. He went dinning hall and sat. nakul served him. Maan was waiting for Geet to come and serve but she was hesitating. Maan felt disappointed. With no mood he done his dinner and left. Geet came out and saw his plate, which was still full. She knew he dint eat but why he is behaving like this. He was looking pale unlike before. What happened to him? She was worried.
Maan was working in his room when he remembered books. He took out books and went for her room. he thought only would hand over her and leave. He reached her room. Door was half opened. He heard a her talking. He frowned thinking whom she is talking. He glanced and found , She was sitting on floor swing her dress with thread n needle and reAding some book. He found three men sitting there, before her. He fumed thinking who are them . Maan bend his head and found it was nakul, with his driver and Gardner. “what they are doing here ” Maan thought. He noticed and found, Geet was reAding some religious book. She was saying some story and all were listening her like follower. Maan calmed down .
He knocked. All turned and went numb looking Maan there. All stood and gathered in one corner, shaking. Maan glared them and all run from there. Geet was too trying to stood when thread pricked in her finger. She winced.
“Geet !!” Maan run to her and took her finger in her hand, blowing warm air of his mouth. It was so sudden she could not understand and when she knew, her eyes went shut, automatically. She was drawn in his touch. There was no shiver no goosebumps nothing rested, only Maan and his warm breath was surrounded her, with magical beams. Maan was lost in her pain and when he came back from his lost world, could see her face. It was so near to his bare eyes. Thin lines of her face were breathing slightly and her lip were having a stoke of curve. He wanted to capture this sight for his whole life but he knew, when those pearl eyes would open, everything would be vanish. He was fearing but it happened. Geet felt his warmth was lessen down and she opened her eyes. Their eyes met. Both had millions unsaid questions ,. Both knew it was their dream that could not be true yet, both dint want to see daylight again in there life.
After few moment they came back in sense. Both startled and moved back. It was not supposed to be happen. Geet looked down, as she knew, where her real place is. Maan looked books which was laying on ground. Dint know when it fell. He picked those and gave to Geet , who was very nervous with this desirable proximity. He turned to leave when saw many dresses, which was looking old. He knew she had only two pairs of dresses then from where it all came ?? he asked
“ye sab kya hai Geet” still without turning to her
“wo when I had been in Orphanage we got these in Charity. So dAdima gave these me. Some are torn to I am fixing them.” she said slowly
Maan smirked. “Geet you can take things in charity but cant accept my gift.. haina !!”
“ji ?? ” she said confused.
“dont try to be innocent Geet. You very well know what I mean” Maan dint want to argue but he could not help.
“nahi Maanji..sach me mujhe kuch samjh nahi aa raha ” she headed , stood before him. He looked her eyes. It had purity yet he dint agree.. not again same mistake he could do. He left without answering her back, leaving her shocked behind.. “ what he meant.. Maan ji why are you behaving like this.. ” some tear drops came out. It was so painful , bearing his unsaid taunt. She did not sleep but went out, in garden. She was trying to understand his behavior. “ is he not wanting me to live here” she thought.
Maan saw her, from his balcony. He knew she was crying and so was he. It was so unbearable. “ why she dint accept his gift when she did those charity things?? just because I gave her?? did she think I had any wrong intention behind all this ?? ” he felt hurt. She could not think low of him yet she did. But why ?? why Geet ?? … both did not sleep whole night.
Next day was sunday and Maan was in mansion. Nakul knocked his room and informed, a couple had come. Maan ordered to send them back but it was kc client so Maan had to see. He came down and met them. couple had come to invite him, for his daughter wedding which Maan refused. Guest very well knew Maan would not agree yet they tried. Geet and nakul came with tea. Lady saw Geet. She became amazed with Geet beauty. Lady excused and went to Geet, behind.
Geet turned and looked her..
“whats your name ?? ” lady asked ..
“ji Geet ”
“yaha kabse kaam kar rahi ho ”
“ji since a month ”
“ humaare yaha kaam karogi .. yaha se jyada salary dungi ” lady whispered,
“ji ?? ” Geet looked her shocked and frowned. She dint like her talk. She looked to Maan who was talking to man but he could sense, Geet gaze on him. He turned to Geet. She was upset. Maan frowned what happened. She looked down, thinking why m expecting anything from him. Maan read her expression and guessed , she was expecting something from him. He looked lady who was standing there, with fake smile.
“Geet..andar jaao ” Maan ordered Geet. She left. Lady came back and sat. “ Maan ji .. where did you find this girl .. ”
Maan frowned. “ why ?? ” he asked
