Geet looked at the phone in her hand shock, why did he cut the call? She became upset, pouted her lips thinking what happened to him suddenly that he cut the call, what did she talk about?
Then suddenly it dawn on her, she was talking about karvachauth, did he became upset for that thing, she became sad as well, not knowing what to do, she went to bed, tears rolled down from the corner of her eyes as she lay down to have a restless sleep.
( Geet, age 13 years, maan – 15 years old)
Maan looked at her crying so hilariously, his heart slit with the pain seeing her red wet face.
And Geet rushed into his arms crying her heart out, he hugs her back tightly, engulfing her Shivering self.
What happened, mishty??
She couldn’t speak in between her hard crying, Maan was helpless not able to stop her, he gives sad look to Dadi who gives him same look back.
Bete, stop crying, you can keep the fast! Finally dadi spoke to console the poor child.
And as those words left her mouth, Geet jerk out of Maan’s arms wiping her eyes hurriedly, she beamed like the tube light, giving wide smile to dadi, Sachi!! I can…sob..keep…sob…the fast..dadi??
Yes beta, you can!! Now stop crying, said dadi walking towards them, she wiped her cheeks cupping her face dearly.
What?? What fast?? You can’t keep one, you are too…before he could, Dadi stops him holding his hand he looked at her to see her gesturing towards Geet, his gaze went on Geet, who’s face look as if she was going to cry again,
He quickly change his sentence, I mean Geet can, Dadima, what fast it is about, by the way??
And Geet became excited, she gives him her sweet smile, when dadi said, it’s about karvachauth Maan, and asked her for whom she is gonna keep it?? Dadi completed giving teasing looks to Geet.
First Maan was startled hearing dadi, he was going to get angry thinking of the person but soon enough seeing dadi teasing looks, and then his gaze drags toward his mishty, and OMG, she was blushing like hell..her red face told him the whole story. He curse himself for even doubting her once, he knew she never have any male friend apart from him nor did she talk to anyone, only him.
He felt proud of his Love!!
Maan went out his frustration in the gym, exercising furiously for doubting his love today.
What happened, today, that his love became so shallow to doubt her.
What a sinful act he did, in his jealousy, he doubted her pure love!!
He slashed the huge ice cubes with his bare hands, reminding her beautiful face, she must have became upset, must have cried..his heart turn restless, why did he gave her pain, when already she is suffering.
He wanted to rushed to her just now and engulf her in his strong arms, but he stops himself not wanted bother her more.
He decided to give her visit next day, his heart skip a beat realizing , she will definitely keep the fast for him, yes, only him, no one resides in her heart apart from him, that pure heart of his mishty only belongs to him, the MSK .
He believes his LOVE.
Geet couldn’t stop blushing, as she was keeping everything ready for the karvachauth at evening.she was so happy and excited to do this rental for her Maan.she will adorn herself beautifully for him, she shied, the thought itself was making her so thrill to wear those all ornaments, red chunari like her mother do.
The sweet smile never left her face which makes Maan’s heart skip a beat. He can died hundredths of deaths just to see her smiling happy face.
Geet was damn hungry whole day, her friends offered her some food , their lunch boxes but she couldn’t budge, it was for Maan’s long age, she would do anything for him.
Her friends teased her, adore her love for Maan, girls were jealous knowing about both of them.
Mishty, take this, you can’t remain hungry, I know!
Maan tried offering her , her favorite paratha, Geet gulp hard, her mouth watered, just with the smell of hot paratha then it was just before her eyes, even she can touch one but can’t eat, how horrible that was?? She thought making crying face, her eyes moisten as she gives him accusing looks.
Tum bahot bure ho, maan. (You are so bad) AAP janbuz ke yeh kar rahe ho na, kyonki aap jante hai, muze parathe kitne pasand hai, and I can’t remain hungry for 2 hours.
( You are doing it on purpose, aren’t you? Because you very well know, how much I loved parathas and I can’t remain hungry more than 2 hours)
It was Geet’s habit, she always eat something, specially at every 2 hours gap, for she couldn’t stay hungry for long time me, leaving school hours.
Maan became shock, it was not his intention, he was only wanted to make her eat something, not do this fast for him, their love was enough for both of them why those fake rituals, when our heart is pure, like his mishty’s then there is no need to do those fake things, and he doesn’t wanted her to remain hungry just for his long age, when he didn’t believe in those things.
It was another fact, that he was proud of her love for him, her doing those things for him, he was happy but that doesn’t mean he allowed her, because of her crying he agree with her stubborn things.
But now seeing her again going back to square, he got another mission to pacify her now.
You don’t like me to do this things for you,? Ha Maan??
She asked cutely crying with her childish voice.
Aww..Maan was just looking at her, he couldn’t stop admiring her pure love for him.
He softly pulled her on his lap, they were seating below one of the tree in the rose farm.
It’s not like that mishty!! He wiped her tears giving her soft smile, I just don’t want to see you hungry, because of me, little Geet put her small palm on his lips nodding her head in no.
Maan was awe with her every gesture, he kiss her palm removing it, holding her small hand in his own , he continued, mishty, I don’t believe in those stuffs,
But I do believe, muze aapke liye karna hai!!
Geet cutely broke through his conversation making Maan chuckle.
You have every right to do anything for me, mishty , he softly speak , taking control on each words , to not to hurt her like before , Geet was listening silently looking at him.
But not this, I can’t see you troubled, mishty because of me!! He tried to make her understand.
But I am not..she hurriedly replied
Mishty, can you able to see me in any trouble,..
Nahi..yeh AAP kaisi baate kar rahe hai?? Geet became restless,
So try to understand me, mishty, I can’t see you in any pain because of me, you will remain hungry , which you gave not habitual just because of me, for me, I don’t like it, it gives me pain, mishty, he tried cupping her face, Geet got his POV, and she pouted .
and you are so small to do this things, he continued.
Believe me, Maan, I can managed for one day, plz let me do it, just for a day, I will never ask you anything. Geet tried to convinced him like a mature girl, Maan left a sigh, he was turning frustrated now with her stubbornness,
Believe me, I wanted to do it by my own will, I am happy to do it for you, I have faith on those rituals.
Listening to her Maan looked at her, if she have faith then how can he come between her and her faith. He loved her and respect her, so he do respects her faith.
He half heartily agree, if she herself is happy then he will not snatch that happiness not those rights from her, which gives her happiness.
Seeing him agree, she beam like never before, Sachi?!!
He gives her smile, and she hugs him tightly in happiness, Maan engulf her happily smiling whole heartily to see her happy.
Maan got ready to go to Geet’s house for he knew she must be waiting for him, he was damn sure, his heart was beating with excitement and unbounded happiness.
On the other hand, Geet was not feeling good to keep the fast for Sameer, though their engagement happened but her heart was never at peace, Sasha did tried to keep her entertained with her weird rattling about anything and everything,
Geet tried to call him, but his phone comes unreachable, she turn angry and throw the phone on the bed, doesn’t know the reason behind her keeping fast today, why did she even care for him , if he doesn’t? thinking so, she rushed to opened the fast, but as she take the glass of water in her hands, the door bell rang stopping her.
It was sasha who forcefully takes Geet to the parlor to do her make over, Geet was perplex, hadn’t done those things before, for she didn’t find the need before, even in her engagement , she was simple, had done simple make up.
but today, things were different as if, she felt special, while doing those things, he came into her mind, Maan!! small smile adores her lips, feeling excited and happy, so peaceful just with the thought of doing everything to look better, for him, for his eyes only.
She knew he will come to her, not anything.. but just to see her once, she wanted to look special for him, blush spread across her face, she feels butterflies running down on her tummy, seeing her own mirage in the mirror, she was looking so different and more beautiful, but .. she pouted.. with her change look, she liked her old own, she thought regretfully, but only he have to love this new look of hers.
Sasha was going to meet her other friends, they were gonna hang out, Geet cutely complained to her but she was really in hurry. she had given her new sexy blouse to wear along with the sari, Geet refused first, for she didn’t wear this type of stuff before, but then sasha was also stubborn, Geet, you just going to be at home, waiting for someone… and she winks , referring to Maan, for she was disliking this Sameer guy, who never shown up and trying to trouble her sweet and innocent friend taking advantage of her innocence.
Geet was in denial, her heart sank hearing her, she remember about Sameer, she gulp the knot in her throat, trying to control herself.
I m not use of it, sasha.. have never wear it before.. Geet tried to refused again, but sasha just pushed her inside, just wear this now and show to me, you don’t want , your friend to be late because of your tantrums, do you, Geet? she cleverly traps her in her words and Geet with a pouted face, went inside.
Geet was feeling so shy, seeing her own bare arms and shoulders, she saw her reflection in the mirror and blushed more, she quickly went to cupboard and started to find something to wrap on her bare shoulders, she fetch through her old stuff and something caught her eyesight.
