Part 2

maan was very restless… he couldn’t take his mind off Prakash’s words… he felt disgusted when he had imagined Dev and Geet as the romancing male and female in a song on TV… irritated with his thoughts he got up to leave to his room…
Beta kya bath hai??? Question dadi… she had seen maan lost and restless from the time he had arrived home…
nothing dadi… just was thinking abt class for tomorrow… gonna sleep… good night… saying he sprinted up to his room successfully avoiding more questions… but sleep was far from his mind… his eyes wandered towards the window as he wanted to get a glimpse of Geet… and there she came… wearing a white patyala and kurta looking like an angel… she was smiling into the phone…
Must be flirting with Dev… he hated the smile on her face now as he thought she was talking to Dev… Annoyed by this, he pulled the curtains closing the windows… he laid back and tried sleeping….

Days flew and maan’s thoughts abt Geet and Dev also grew…. all gossip that Prakash brought abt them was taken to heart. He couldn’t stop himself from feeling jealous and hatred towards Dev and disgust towards Geet… and the weirdest part was those he dints know why he felt so…
The results were out and Geet had stood first in her school… all her friends had scored good marks and as a treat Dev had taken her and the girls to the ice cream parlor…
Thanku jeju… cooed Pari batting her eye lids
God…. Murmured Pinky rolling her eyes at Pari’s antics
What flavor do you want Dev asked Geet trying to divert Pinky’s attention from an about to be argument…
Wat ever you like jaan… he said with a smirk as he understood what she was trying to do…
He held her hand when she moved forward and said allow me… hum aapke ke kidmath me hai why are you stressing he smiled flirtatiously…
Geet heard whooping sound from her friends that made her smile at Dev’s and the girls antics…. But this was taken as a blush by someone sitting near by….
Adhi had followed the girls to the ice cream shop to get a glance of pinky… and his unfortunate friends had also followed…. Though Maan was talking to Prakash, his concentration was on the girls actually one girl Geet… his anger grew when he saw Dev hold Geet’s hand and was in peak when he saw her blush..
kamina flirt.. Adhi heard maan mumble under his breath… this was new… Adhi saw Maan visibly make an effort to restrain himself from getting up…interesting he thought…
Guys got to go… remembered something… saying maan took off… he was really mad…
This is disgusting… Dev is shameless what happened to Geet… such public display of affection… god this is so gross… yuck… How can she let someone touch her… oh whom am I kidding… may be he had touched her every where… Thinking all this… maan drove off to his house, to his room to ponder and grumble abt this matter…

Geet get ready… I’ll take you to college today saying Brij left a dumbstruck Geet in her room….
Oouucchh.. she yelled as she pinched herself to see if she was dreaming… what happened to veerji today she murmured rubbing the area she pinched herself… she took her bag as she walked out of her room into her brother’s car…
Brij dint want Geet’s senior’s ragging her… though he knew Dev was there… but still… something in his heart had pushed him to do this… he silently took Geet to her college and escorted her to her class… all the seniors now knew tat Geet was Brij Handa sister and they had to stay away from her…. He left her in her class with a satisfied heart…
Geet was still in pleasant shock… it was after 2 months from the incident her brother had not even had a minor conversation with her and today all of a sudden taking her to college???? This was beyond her…. A tap on the shoulder brought her back.. Turning she saw Prachi standing there with a smirk…
What are you dreaming subha subah??? She asked with a teasing smile…
Prachiiiii… Geet yelled… this was surprise… she never expected her friend to be here…..
Calm down… I too study in your class… and guess what… Pinky is on her way here… we three will be mates again….. She said cheerfully….
Geet was in cloud nine… this was the best day of her life… grinning she told Prachi what had happened today morning… she clucked as she looked at the stunned face of her friend…..
The bell had rung and the three friends had gathered in the canteen… wah! Kya samosa hai yaar… said Pinky helping herself to another one…
Stop it yaar bhookad… came a voice…
Pari!!!! Yelled Prachi…. What are you doing here???
I’m in commerce sec yaar… I got admission here… couldn’t inform as I had gone to my village… came back 2 days before… so thought of giving surprise to you… she said grinning….
All the friends were happy… they missed Meera… she had gone back to Chennai to her parents place… time passed by for Geet and her friends…
It was almost 6 months…. Maan’s thought and feelings have gotten worse abt Geet… he had made up his mind to disgust her existence… this had helped him.. He had studied harder…
.Maan… chall na… we have to go to the auditorium… chall.. Saying Adhi pulled Maan with him…
What’s the hurry Maan asked as he had to run to follow Adhi who seemed to be in a hurry to reach the auditorium?
Pinky…. Adhi said breathlessly
What….?? What happened to her… moreover she is not in this college dude… you have lost it… I’m not coming anywhere… saying Maan stopped
Dude… Pinky, Prachi and Geet are here… he said… as by now Adhi knew Maan had some feeling for Geet…
For what… he asked suspiciously
For oratory competition… bhul gaye kya….??? Said Adhi
Oh… so they are here….. Good… you go take Prakash with you…. Saying maan left a confused Adhi behind…
Interesting….. Murmured Adhi before he ran to see his love… (One side)
Maan was adamant… he dint want to see her…. He knew he will not be able to control himself if he saw her now…. Thinking he moved out of the library after spending an hour there…. When he saw Prachi and Pinky coming out of a class room… unable to stop himself he slowly moved towards the room… he froze at the sight before him….Dev’s hand was on Geet’s waist and was supporting her while her hand was around his neck… in a fluid movement he saw Dev pick her up effortlessly and place her on the desk… Maan burned inside… he felt that his nerves would burst… how sick of them… how disgusting of Geet… how desperate of them… in college… cant they get a room…. He felt nauseating… he ran from that place before he saw more… his eyes welled up… he felt hot all over… the pain in his heart was unbearable… he ran from the college to his home.. It was almost 8 kms… but still he ran… he ran till he reached his house…his room… he fell on his bed crying… he couldn’t stop his tears… his heart was pounding… his legs were killing him… but the pain in his chest…in his heart was beyond all this… that moment he felt that his whole life was meaningless… he wanted to kill himself… he closed his eyes… when he felt a warm hand on his forehead… he opened to see a worried dadi staring at him…
beta.. aap teek ho?? She asked with full concern…
Wo wo… he stammered and hugged her… he cried holding his dadi… he felt his dadi tighten her grip on him… he cried till sleep took over him…
Savitri Devi Kurrana… the old and wise lady of the house.. She had seen riches and poverty all together… she had seen men change faces in seconds…. She had lived a life what people say a complete one… her wise eyes had not missed the look her grandson gave to a certain balcony every morning… she had not missed the hurt and dejected look on his face few years ago on a certain engagement function… she had her doubts but today it was clear… her grand son Maan was in love with Geet Handa… and today he had realized that she was to marry someone else…. She saw how he had run towards his room and had followed… the pain… the sorrow of losing someone was much known by her… she dint want this.. she had wanted good things for maan and Vicky… but alas… all are bound by fate… she held her broken grandson till he fell asleep… she knew starting from today things will be different… very different….
Geet limped as Dev held her as they moved towards their car, to home… things dint go as planned… after the competition they had planned to watch a movie… Geet papaji had given a yes after Dev had persuaded him… but she had hurt her toe while coming out of the class… she had managed the competition but dev had refused the movie trip… it needed doc attention… it had swell up in size… the doc had plastered it up… given her pain killer and had advised her less walking… she had a hair line fracture on her toe… her mom supported her and thanked Dev… Dev had again picked her up to take her to her room… they were lucky as the men were not at home….he moved up and placed Geet on the bed… he moved towards the balcony and closed the door and curtains… asking her to sleep, had bid her bye and left…
Prakash held Maan’s shoulders and giggled as his mind conjure up after images from the scene they had witnesses just now from Maan’s room window…Maan was broken fully and Prakash’s imaginary discussion was burning the remaining pieces… he was now very sure that Dev and Geet shared everything between them… but he still dint know why this hurt him so much… after Prakash left.. He lay down on his bed… he had decided few things… he would force himself to forget Geet…he was gonna change rooms with Vicky… he had responsibilities and he was gonna fulfill them to the dot… Geet can f**k anyone she wants and he wouldn’t bother… determined he slipped into sleep…

Precap: dev off to US for MBA.. leap …marriage
