Geet got up, got fresh and rushed to kitchen. She had to prepare breakfast ad today, was special for her. She wanted to make all his favorite when Nakul told, Maan had already left. She became upset. Then Nakul handed her a envelop. She looked him confused . Nakul smiled, she understood and smiled back, shying. She took and read.
“ Geet don’t go school by auto. Take my car ” was written on it. She started thinking, hesitated when Nakul said, driver was waiting for her and asking. She had no option, she agreed.
She met Meera again in campus. Both sat for talk, as Geet was still confused about Meera being here. Meera narrated her story. “ After leaving Orphanage, I was taken to Allahabad. My family was so nice. They loved me like their own daughter. There I met Arjun and we started loving each other. He is very nice Geet. When his parent got to know about me they did not agree for this alliance but Arjun, he made them understand, handle them very calmly. And finally we got married, before two months. After marriage we came here, Delhi. As Arjun is partner in this NGO it was easy for me working here. ”
“ You are teacher here ?” Geet questioned
“hmm, kind of. Actually Geet I work here and also help Arjun, in his office works. And yesterday, Maan had come here to ask about you, then..”
“About me ? ” Geet was shocked
“Yes Geet. Maan wanted to know how your studies going and how you performing. Perhaps you would not be knowing but this school program is running because of him only. He arranged entire things. Yesterday he was talking with Arjun when I came there and listened your name. I guessed you might be same Geet and I asked detail about you. Seemed Maan also knew about me and he recognized me easily and then, we met you”
Geet was stunned. Maan did everything? But why ? For me ? No, no.. it was because he is very nice person and may be wanting to do something for all poor girls.. but ” her chain of thought broke when bell rung and they rushed to respective jobs.
Geet entered with overwhelm and lost in Maan thought. Their yesterday moments and this New info , what he did, was roaming in her mind when she heard same giggles of same group of girls. Seeing Geet blushing face they started teasing her, but not in good manner. It was Geet who was not understanding their dual meaning words.
“Geet why are you looking more beautiful today ? Any good news hmm . Any secret ? ” one said and winked to others.
“Omg ! Look Geet your dress. Its beautiful and seems very expensive too . Where did you steal from ? Who gave and why ? ” other said
Geet was blushing more thinking they are teasing her in “ friendly” way. Their gossip ended when teacher entered.
After class off, Geet was with group when driver, run to her and handed a phone saying, Maan sir is on line. Geet shocked and took. She talked. “ Geet are you free now ” Maan said. Geet nodded, looking around, found all were staring her only.
“Geet , hello are you there, geet ! ”
“Ji, i’m here ” meekly she answered
“Good, now listen. I have sent driver and you have to come office. Don’t go KM . I have something urgent to tell you”
“But , I .. how,, I mean ”
“ Geet ! My hand is paining. Come fast ” and he cut without listening her excuses. Geet made face , hearing chuckles around and left with driver.
They reached KC. She had thought Maan would come to take her but guard informed her that Maan is in meeting and told her to come own-self. She feared. Alone, in his office, tolerating entire staffs blazing gaze, but she had to. She headed to lift and remembered how Maan had operated, she did same. She reached on floor. She prayed Babaji name and with trembling leg, stepped to direction, where she had to reach. Her heart was beating fast. She was twisting corner of her Dupatta and was walking , looking down but found no one there around. She was confused when Pinky came and hugged her.
“Geet !! you here. Wow, come ” she took Geet with her as it was break-time there. She took her pantry and talked, forgot to be in Maan cabin, as he ordered her to be there only.
After half hour, Maan entered in his cabin, happy. He was anxious to see her, meet her and he pushed door in racing speed and then, shocked. It was empty. He had told guard to give him miss call when she would enter inside and he got that special call, when was in meeting. He was satisfied she reached safely then why she is not here, in cabin he wandered. He searched her around everywhere, in all cabins but she was no where. He panicked. She dint know anyone here then where could go. He called KM and asked Nakul. He called guard and asked and everywhere, he got denial. He was hell worried and was going toward lift when heard Her giggle. He turned and saw Geet, was there, fine and safe. He pressed his eyes to calm his sinking heart, and then a rage appeared in his red tired eyes.
“ Geet !! ” he shouted. She jumped with loud sound and stopped, in her way, along with entire staffs, around. Maan hasted to her and held her arm tight, giving her wince in sudden pain but she dint show.
“Where were you ?” Maan had strictness in voice. He was very loud. All stood there, saw them widen eyes and was shocked.
“ Dint you hear Geet ? I said Where were you ?” his eyes were burning her in fear
“ I, I was .. ”
“She was with me Maan Sir ” Pinky said, meekly, shaking with scare.
“ Did I ask you Pinky ? Don’t dare to come between us. And You all , what are you all watching haan. Am I doing any road show here. Go back to your works ” Maan shouted and all run from there, holding their little weak heart, saving from heart attack. Maan dragged Geet with him and locked cabin door behind.
