They were in Mansion. Maan was in his room and She was walking back and fro in hall , thinking should tell Maan. She was in quandary when, Mansion phone rang. It was Pinky.
“Geet will you come for my birthday. I have kept a small arrangement for my friends only’’
“Pinky I’m sorry but I really can’t’’
“Please na Geet, look its very small party. I promise will not take much time. Please come na. I’ll come to pick you also’’
“But Pinky how can I? I mean MaanJi , he will not allow me, really’’
“Then you ask na . I’m sure he will let you come’’
What happened Geet’’ Maan asked who was coming down. “Um! Pinky wants me to come for her birthday party’’ Geet said hesitating knowing Maan will not allow going anywhere alone but she was surprised when he agreed. “take my car’’ Maan spoke.
“No Pinky is coming to pick me’’
Hm’’ He nodded. In evening Geet left with Pinky.
It was getting pretty dark and Geet was not home yet. Maan started worrying. He called Pinky and got to know Geet had already left few hours back, in taxi. Maan got irritated. He called Orphanage but there also, he found no clue about her. He cursed her and then himself. He got worried thinking she was weak. What if something.. , ‘’No.. don’t think like this Maan. She will be fine’’ he tried to make his heart understand. He had no way, what to do, where to go. He shouted on Nakul, shouted on Pinky, shouted on him own but these all, didn’t help him in any way. He dashed in car, slammed shoes on brake, was shifting gears on highest, turning steering wheel on both side, to turn car along with, expecting on some turn, on any road he could find her. It was dark , it was cold, it was risk being outside, alone. He thought to find her friends number and mind clicked, on Meera. He called her. Told her about Geet missing. Meera shocked, in no time her mind went toward those boys and she told him, everything.
His car stopped with a long screech. It shook a little with sudden stop. Maan felt his mind was to blast. He clinched his teeth. His jaw line was palpitating. Fist on steering wheel, became tighter n tightest. He called Arjun and got to know Naina number. He called his detective and ordered them to find out who were those boys. He got veeraj whereabouts. He speeded his car, took u-turn and raced to kill that Veeraj thing.
He took his phone from dashboard and dialled Mansion, thinking if, he could hear Geet voice and yes! He listened. Geet voice entered in his ear and he stopped, wherever he was. Not thinking what if his car would had been on busy road. He, just stooped because he heard, his Geet voice. But very next moment, he raced toward Mansion. He was hell angry. Don’t know on whom but he was and this, was apparent in his face and specially, in his dark red blood eyes.
“Geettt!!!!!!’’ He screamed from very moment he entered, inside Mansion. He saw her, descending, running with shaking steps. She was shivering with his visible anger. She looked down, came near him and stood, fiddling corner of Dupatta.
“Where was you?’’ He had no mercy in his voice
“Why didn’t you tell me?’’
“I-I didn’t r-remember your number s-so..’’
“Why didn’t you tell about Veeraj?’’
Geet looked him shocked. She could not guess his mean first but then, her mind flashed and she got to know, he knew everything. Her eyes became moist and big. She looked him shocked yet pity was waving there. “Maan..’’ she tried but he stopped her, turned back. He could not see her wet eyes yet, was not ready to forgive her. She didn’t trust me, dint tell me’’ was claiming his mind fully.
“Maan ‘’ she faced him, tried to see his eyes, which was shut off. She cupped his face tried to make him calm but it was not leaving any mark on his already wounded heart. “Maan I was to tell you, please listen me’’ She pleaded
“But you didn’t ‘’
“Maan I was scared for you. I was fearing this all may affect your reputation and I can’t let it happen in any way. They are very bad Maan ‘’
She was crying which was enough to melt his anger. How could he anger on her when he knew, he could not even for a minute. He understood, she was still living under insecurities and he had to remove it, then they can be one in real manner.
He removed her hand from his face and started to go. “I will not leave them’’ he roared. “They will be killed Geet. How dared they raised their filthy voice on you!!! I will tear their eyes from their bodies which they dared to keep on you !!!! How dare they !!! I ‘ll kill them… ‘’
“Maan please you are not going anywhere’’ Geet terrified looking him like this. She tried to drag him which was next to impossible. He had become harder than rock. He was not ready to stop , he pick out cell and started to dial some number when Geet snatched it, knowing he was going to order his securities. Her dream flashed before her eyes and she, was not ready to let it become true and so She hugged him. Hugged him tight to stop him going out otherwise no one knew what would be consequences. “Maan you are not going anywhere !! “ she shouted hugging him. “ I won’t let you go anywhere now .. no no..no Maan you can’t’’ She cried, yelled , begged and finally jointed her hand pleading “ Don’t go please.. ‘’
“All right, I will not ’’
She looked hopefully. But she knew, something was coming, next.
“But, I have one condition’’ She knew it..knew it yet she nodded. “what?’’
“Geet if you want me not to fight with them for you, then now you, will have to fight with them, for me’’
“I didn’t get ‘’ she forgot to blink and stared him, like statue
“It mean Geet, that if I cannot do anything against them, so now you are going to answer them back ’’
