Maan hears Nakul scream, he runs toward the direction where sound was coming from. He stops on the edge of stairs, looked down. A pale unconscious figure was laying, without a movement. His eyes became big and for a lightning moment his mind stopped working along with his heart. For a moment anyone could declare him, dead.
“Geet!!!!!!!” he runs to her, lifted her in his arms, carried to room. “Nakul call doctor!!!!!!” he yells keeping her down on bed. He sat next her, kept her fainted body in his arms, near heart, kissed her head, her face everywhere .. “Geet open your eyes… Geet” his eyes became wet, moist with tears. He shouts “Nakul!!!! where the hell you are..I said call doctor!!!!” He waited for a minute then lifted her. “I will take her hospital!!!!” he self talked like insane.
“Maansir doctor …. ” Nakul appeared with doctor. Maan was not ready to leave her hand. He was there, sitting, holding her hands, was looking Geet then doctor with hope that she will open her eyes or doctor will say anything but both, were quite. “Doctor what happened????” Finally he asked.
Doctor after few minutes turned to him. “Nothing to worry Mr. Khurana everything is alright. She is fine. Bas halki si chot hai paao me. It will be fine soon” he stood up and gave some slip to Maan , of medicines she will be needed.
“But doctor why she is not…. ” Maan was to complete when Geet called him, winched in pain. Maan rushed to her. “geet tum thik ho???” he caressed her head, holding her hand. She nodded. “I’m okay Maan , mai thik hu” Maan heart came on some peace.
It was four at evening. It was the time Geet had to leave for airport. She tried to stand up but fell back on bed. Her legs were paining. “Geet what are you doing” Maan kept medicines on table and rushed to her, supported to rest on bed, comfortably.
“Maan time is arrived. I have to leave” geet ignored him. Again tried to get up.
“Tum kahi nahi jaa rahi.. samjhi tum!!!!” he shouts
“I will.. samjhe aap” She answered back with same irritation
“But you have hurt Geet… ” Helplessness was evident in his voice
“I will complete your Final Decision Maan ” she stared him with the maximum intensity she had.
Both eyed each other. They knew both wanted same thing yet, both were denying. Time passed. Both waited for some response with the other. Finally…
“Thik hai Geet . If you want to go i’ll not stop you anymore. But give me half hour. I’ll be back and dare you to move from here till I come.. ” Maan spoke and left from there. Geet frowned, where he gone??” she was perplexed.
Maan was on call. “ Adi, I need everything to be arranged within 20 min!!!”
“But sir itni jaldi…”
“AdI!!! do what I said.. Just do it !!!!!”
They hung up.
“Geet.. now you will not go alone. I will be with you. After all I’ll be your husband..” he smirked.
“Maan aap kaha gaye thy!!” Geet asked, seeing Maan coming back.
“Nothing Geet. Just had to complete some arrangements for your leaving!!” seeing Maan so relaxed Geer got more confused. “Matlab?” she asked
Maan cupped her face, looked with dense eyes “matlab Geet, you will not go al….. ” before he could complete, Nakul entered. “Geet someone wants to see you. She had come from Orphanage”
“Orphanage se??” Maan was confused when saw, a girl, stood on door. She came near Geet and hugged her, said thanks many times. Geet smiled in reply. Both were looking so happy. Maan could not understand anything, was looking Geet with same dazed state.
“Thank you so much Geet. Now I would complete my papa dream” girl said. Geet smiled with charm. She was looking so happy. Girl came to Maan who was standing some far. “Thank you so much Maan Sir. You gave her permission for this. You both are so nice” She showed her gratitude with real expression. Maan did not understand but he smiled, giving her, his agreement whatever she said. Girl left.
“What was that Geet , who was she” no second he wasted to ask
Geet stood up with the help of Maan. She wanted to be near him. “Maan she was the girl who had got second position in Scholarship Exam. And now, she is going for study, not me”
“what!!!!” Maan was like.. he had forgotten the ability to understand anything. “But Geet ye sab..”
“Maan I know you will be angry on me what I did. But she had more need to go and achieve her dream more then me. I have you Maan but she has no one. Like you supported me, helped me to complete my every dream, this time I too had chance to complete her wish, her dream. And i decided to give this chance to her. Did I do wrong?” She looked him, waited , little scaring”
“But It was your dream too Geet.. ”
“I know and dont worry Our dream will be completed, its my promise” She said excitedly.
“Wo kya hai na Maan.. my hubby will take me abroad with him, wont you!!” She said and runs from there.
“Hubby???” maan did not get her mean and when he got…
“Geet!!!!!” he runs , followed her. “geet dont run your leg!!!!!….. ” He stopped, found her smiling, no actually laughing.. out loud.
“Iska matlab everything was just fake…” Maan whispered, little loud.
“Umm!! not everything. Actually I had fallen but not from high but from three stairs. And it all was well planned Mr. Maan Singh Khurana.. wo kya hai na, I knew you cant stay away from me. And also you will send me away because once I had demanded it from you. So just a little game for you. Because I knew, you cant let me go, Alone, hai na!!!! ”
Maan nodded and smiled. He pulled her, to him. Whispered “you had heard?”
Geet nodded, looked down in shy. “I heard when you were talking to Adi Sir”
“But you made me cry Geet. You know how much I got scared for you” he was serious, tensed.
Geet looked him. “ and I was for you Maan. I could not see you dying every day. I had seen how you was holding you back but wanted to fulfil my wish only, even if, it would kill you. I know once you wanted to marry me, ask me for that but then again you did not keep your wish over mine. My wish, my dream is nothing before you Maan. Its you, who is my most beautiful dream,. If you are with me, nothing else matter in this world. Kuch bhi nahi ”
“Hmm so it mean Nakul and that Doctor, all were doing drama??’’
“Bilkul! Humne achha kiya na ??’’ Geet laughed.. “I love you Maan”
“Love you too Mishty” And he hugged her like never before.
