Geet was in her own thoughts. She did not notice Maan. Rajni was hiding behind Maan pleading him to help when Geet tried to catch her.
“One minute!” Maan voice filled in the middle stopping Geet from her effort. She came into sense. She wondered who’s this person? Rajni is hidden behind whom? She doesn’t know him. But she seemed to have seen this guy before. The man’s head was wrapped in bandages. There was scar on his face. Geet put emphasis on the brain, to try to identify him.
When all of sudden, she remembered last night. “Oh, maybe it’s the same one who was carrying Rajni” Geet panicked. “Go inside quickly, Rajni” She spoken out loud. She quickly wanted to move away Rajni from that guy. On the other hand, Rajni was feeling safe next to that stranger. Geet did not understand why Rajni, she was not going away. She ordered again, but Rajni was not ready to move out.
Geet was going totally mad. She began to force her, when Maan intervened. Regardless of Geet, he asked Rajni to go inside. “Do not make a scene here. Go to home” He said. Rajni, who was not at all heeding toward Geet, listened to that stranger at his one saying and went inside.
Geet was totally confused. Why was Rajni listened to him, she did not understand anything. Everything was unexpected. She was ashamed of her condition. People were enjoying the spectacle. Bindiya, stood in the back was enjoying the scene. A man beat her, whom she do not even know. From this point, Geet became more furious. She looked him fuming. Who gave him right to show authority over my Rajni.
“”Can we go inside and talk?” Maan asked patiently.
“How can I bring a stranger into home?” She thought.
“”Take him inside Geet, if you say, I can lock door from the outside? See, I have keys” Bindiya said in a voice full of mischief swinging keys in her hand.
“The spectacle is over. You all can go home” Maan said in a heavy voice, specially looking at Bindiya. There was an authority in his expression, that hearing the voice, all left. The crowd is finished.
“I also do not mind standing here and talking Miss Geet Handa, but…”
“How do you know my name?” Geet interrupted in a hurry.
“He is my school teacher Geet! Now don’t hit him again!!” Then, Rajni shouted from looking through window.
