“School Teacher?”..!” Geet looked confused toward Maan. Her heart was still beating fast. There still a lot of questions were unanswered. Then Maan’s serious voice attracted her thinking.
“Look Geet, I came here only to know that how’s Rajni now? Last night..”
“Yes Last Night!”.. Her mind paused at this particular word. She also wanted to know first. What happened last night? How he met Rajni? Why he was holding her? Her mind was screaming and her eyes, were in wait.
“Geet, cant you see, he is hurt. Cant you sit and talk inside?” Rajni shouted. Her keen voice caught attention of both. Maan looked at Geet but she was sturdy.
“What happened last night? I want to know ? “Geet asked directly.
“Didn’t Rajni tell you anything?”
Geet bowed her eyes in shame. How could She tell that Rajni had run away from home. Her helplessness was visible in her posture. She only shook her head no. Still, she looked at Maan, hundreds question by filling in her eyes. Maan looked carefully at her face. As if trying to read something.
Stableness of both of two, Rajni did not like. She interrupted. “Yesterday, I had fallen on the road Geet, and I had leg injury. Then sir was helping me when you hit him” She came out shouting, gaining attention of both.
“Leg injury?” Geet was startled. Why she did not know about it? She should have known. It was her responsibility, to take care of Rajni. Nothing matters more than her little sister. Not even she herself.
Her heart groaned in anguish. “Rajni, show me your hurt child!” She asked in a hurry. She started checking her legs when Rajni jolted annoyingly, showing her extreme anger.
“Stop it Geet! I don’t need of your this stupid care. Yesterday you were angry, and today, this fake love. I don’t need it”
Geet tried to woo her with her loving words but Rajni was not listening at all.
“However, I regret the fact that you insult me in front of Maan Sir, Geet. What will he think about me?” Rajni started crying. Suddenly, Geet realized, what mistake she made? She hurt the person who helped Rajni and also, her school teacher? She should apologize to him. Thinking, she turned to Maan. But he was gone…
