“ nakul bhaiya you know what happened today in school . Today na we met our teacher. She is so good and you know what we did.. we means I and puja and rajji .. we….. ” Geet was going on n on n on changing cushion cover in hall and nakul was in kitchen. Geet had to almost shout for talk. Both were unaware of, someone standing there, hearing their talk, with most concentration.
Maan was yet to step in when he found a loud girly sound. He was surprised as he never heard Geet voice so loud before. Whenever she faced him, used to became mute but today, what he saw was totally different and was nice too. He saw Geet was busy in her work, speaking loud , so openly, without any hesitation. “ why doesn’t she talk like this in front of me? ” he thought and eagerly wished to take part in her unusual talk. How much time he sepnt standing there, dint know but it was a beautiful time ever, standing and listening her talk, without any full stop or punctuation mark. He shook head and left to his room, passing from there, when Geet saw him.
She went mute at once . It was silent all around when “ Geet.. what happened .. tell na.. what happened after you did friendship with your new teacher ” nakul shouts from inside kitchen, thinking why she stopped suddenly. Geet gulped her saliva, looking Maan, who was stood on middle of stair, in his signature style, smirking and staring her with his teasing eyes. “ Geet!! kya hua ” again nakul asked not knowing, his sis was struggling hard , with her raising heartbeats and tickling sensations within , feeling Maan gaze on her, without any barrier.
Maan started coming down, slowly. He had forgot, how to blink. Geet left cushion and stood, sensing something odd to come. She moved back and he, was coming, with a eye lock with her. His face was showing something not good was wandering inside his mind .. But What !! ” she thought. She went nervous and quivered. She held table for support but Maan had no change. He was as before and both came closer.. closer to each other so any one could misunderstood, there was no one behind Maan. His big height covered her tiny form completely. He forced her to rest her back on wall behind and was stood, before her , like a second wall, tougher then real. She was feeling very uncomfortable and finally “ Maan”” she whispered, in anticipation. Maan blinked his eyes and moved back, What I am doing ” he thought but didn’t regret. He was happy he did, kept first step on his zeal. He walked back n back n back.. till his body, did not disappear in a room behind. He had smile on his blank face, which was not blank anymore. Now it had reflection of her skin, shape of her small feature and a fervour of her livelihood..
Geet was back from school. She was in lil worry. She called pinky “ pinky I had to fill a form.. tomorrow is last date. Please help me ” she said. Pinky said she cant come km so she would have to come kc.
Geet- but how can I come there ??
Pinky- why not Geet.. before also you had been here na. Like that..just come here I would help you to what you need, ok
Geet- umm.. ok.. but I wont come inside. You would have to come in parking area. I would be there only
Pinky- thik hai Geet.. mat aana uper.. now have to go. Byee.. and listen Geet .. come between lunch time okk.. ” she hung up.
Geet thought if she is going why dont she take Maan lunch also along with. So she took lunchbox and left for kc.
After reaching KC she gave box to peon and told to deliver Maan and also pls inform pinky about her arrival. Peon nodded and left. He knocked Maan cabin. “ sir your lunch ”
“hmm.. keep here.”
Peon- sir.. wo where is pinky madam?
Maan- why ?
Peon- sir someone girl is waiting for her in parking
Maan- who is she.. you know her
peon- yes sir.. you maid ge..
“Shut up ..” Maan raised from chair hearing again same word. His blood boiled. Why cant people call her by her name” he thought. Is it necessary to add content word before her.” Peon got scared looking him and started shivering. He did not understand what fault he did as it was normal to call anyone, with their profession. Maan composed himself, as it was no use to shout him. He knew people mentality would not change, until her position be changed in this society. No one would develop their view toward her, till she doesn’t make her own specific identity here. And she , would have to do this. “For this, i would help her ” he was resolute. He came out and went to bring Geet..
