For few days, same routine Maan & Geet had. Geet was, busy in study and Maan in office and both, busy with their companionship, together. Geet had fully learned to ignore all gossips around her and so, now people had stopped teasing, taunting seeing no effect on her. Maan dropping her school was also as usual and Naina, was not in sight. Some said she had left and some told she had gone to her some relatives, some even told she was sick enough to die. So it had no clue where she vanished. Sara was attending class but used to be away from Geet.
Narendra now used to visit office in daily basic with one or another reason, but never got any chance to meet Geet. As like he cared for, he was there to grab all information about Maan and her relation. He could see there was something more than boss and employee bond between them. He could see the exposed protection and obsession for her in Maan eyes. Let leave Maan body alone, his shadow was too enough for protect Geet, hiding her in his peer darkness as nobody could see her visible in day light. He got to know from other staffs that Geet was Maan maid and used to live in Mansion itself, with him alone. That was enough for him, to give a devil beast laugh.
Since three days, Maan had been noticing same Veeraj guy and his friends, roaming around school. First day Maan ignored but second day then third..it was not getting over his nerves now. He decided teach them good lesson. Maan dialled a number and talked. In return, got the desired reply he wanted and made him smirk delightfully. He drove off somewhere.
As usual Geet was waiting in his cabin, doing some typing work for office when phone rang. She looked here there to find anyone would come to pick it. With wait for few rings she picked it up “hello’’
It was Maan. He said her to go back Mansion early as he was not going to back office for today. His voice was heavy like was doing some tight work outs. She tried to ask why he was panting but he ignored excusing randomly. She nodded and put phone down. At evening she noticed Maan returned back late and seemed tired out, though was trying to be fresh and normal.
Next day she heard some gossips about Veeraj and his friends were missing for several hours and finally been found, half dead in some far desert. She frowned, thinking, connecting every thin wire of her memory from yesterday till now. She was sure there was something had been done by Maan, and so she got angry.
“Maan what was all that’’ She barked in his cabin. He jumped hearing her loud voice.
“Wat what Maan, don’t be innocent like you don’t know anything. I know everything what you have done with those boys’’
Maan got reason of her anger. He stood up, came near her, tried to make her calm and understand but it was no use. She was so hyper. He tried hard and finally lost his temper too
“What the hell your problem is Geet. If I do anything for you, why you can’t accept it normally. Is this necessary to create scene on every small thing whatever I do for you ha’’
“Maan its not small thing okay! you got kidnapped those guys and then don’t know how badly you mistreated them that they are in hospital fighting for their life , do you understand what you did, what crime you did Maan’’
“Yes I did and will do whenever anyone would try to give their nasty eyes on you Geet. And I did what they deserved. If this, is crime in your eyes then okay, I did and I have no regret for this’’
Geet calmed down, hearing him. She knew he could do even worse what had been done and all because of her and for her only. She respected him more for what he did but still, could not accept his way of handling for these boys. It was such violence which she could never had accepted. She tried to made him calm , understand but he was very furious to understand a word, against what he did. He was not getting why always she try to protect her opposers. First that Naina and now theses boys. He got irritated and left leaving her perplexed entirely. Geet cried, left alone there, feeling guilt what she did or said to Maan. She didn’t mean it, she just wanted to keep him away from all these issues knowing his temper very well. She didn’t want to get any harm reach to him. She could not see him in pain but knowingly or unknowingly, she gave him, what he didn’t deserve.
“What she think of herself. Can’t she once.. just once support me what I do for her’’ Maan was cursing, sitting in Conference room. he wanted to be alone for some time. He was lost in thoughts when felt a pat, on shoulder. He turned. “Uncle?’’ asked frowning.
“What happened Maan’’ Narendra asked, showing concern
“Nothing’’ Maan firmly avoided, he didn’t like him being here, near him.
“Maan beta I know you don’t like me. But I’m your uncle son’, your father’s best friend. How can see you worried, sitting alone here. Tell me what happened?’’ Narendra showed concern which irritated Maan further. He stood up and rushed out from office in irritation, without informing Geet.
Geet was waiting for Maan, restless, walking back and fro in his cabin. She did think he is still in office, without saying her or leaving her he could not have left, she assumed. She came out , searched him, asked , inquired about him but found no answer his whereabouts. Some told Maan sir had been seen last in conference room, she relaxed, nodded and returned back in cabin. She was feeling something not good, something she should not have felt. Like, something is not going to happen, something which should not have come in her life. Not being sure what to do, she called Maan. He didn’t pick. Geet assume he must be in meeting so didn’t call further.
Maan was driving, saw office number was flashing in his mobile screen. He knew, it was Geet but his lost sense didn’t let him pick call. He thought, next time he would pick. “After all she should know, I’m hell angry on her’’ He blabbered. He waited, waited and waited for next call but, it never happened. It made him more furious. He was thinking to call her back before but now, NO Way!!!’’ he drove off in anger mode.
Geet looked time. It was to dark any time ahead and so, she decided to go back Mansion. “Don’t know when Maan will be free from meeting’’ she thought. She packed her bag, came out and headed to lift, when someone called from back. She stopped on way. It was same guy who had told about Maan being in meeting. “Geet Maan sir had said you to wait till he gets free from meeting’’ He said. Geet nodded hearing Maan name and come back at same place where she had spent her half day.
