Mukti sighed deeply. “Yes , I am in love with somebody but he doesn’t love me.”she paused and then continued after few seconds.”but I’m fine because he is happy. His happiness is more important to me than getting him. I have understood this and I hope , you would also understand this.”
Shivansh for a moment got lost in her. “How can you be so positive ?” He asked getting little shocked.
She put her hand on his shoulder. “Just , I look at the things in different way. I just want his happiness, It doesn’t matter that whether it is with me or without me. When you will see Nandini’s smiling face then I’m sure , you will understand me properly.”
Shivansh was listening to her patiently and trying to understand her. “I hope so.” He murmured and Mukti gave him a assurance smile.
“Now , you get fresh and I’m preparing lunch for you. I’m sure , you must not have eaten anything since morning.” Shivansh just nodded his head.
“Shivansh, you will be fine. I’m with you..”She paused.” I mean , everybody are with you.”
“I know.” He blinked his eyes telling her in gesture that he is fine. Then he went to get fresh.
“I just hope that Shivansh would start looking at the things like I’m seeing them. It will be good for him.” After saying this , Mukti went to prepare lunch for him.
Nandini was making lunch , standing in the kitchen. She was trying to think positive now and started feeling better also. She was making fried rice and for that she was cutting the vegetables. Manik walked inside and snaked his arms around her from behind. She shivered with his touch. He was nuzzling her hair.
“I love you , my star.” He whispered in her ear and gently kissed her cheek.
“I love you more.” She smiled broadly , putting hand on his face.
“By the way , What are you preparing ?” He asked standing beside her and ate the carrot which she was cutting.
“Make it fast because I’m starving.” He rubbed his tummy like a small kid. She smiled at him.
“Won’t you help me ?” She asked raising her eyebrows.
“No , I will do my important work.”
She looked at him suspiciously. “What important work ?”
“You will come to know.” He smiled wickedly at her , making her confused. She started cutting tomatoes after the carrots for the fried rice.
He again stood behind her and pulled her closer to himself after wrapping his one hand around her waist. Her heart skipped beating for a moment, as his body came in contact with her body. With his free hand , he gently placed her hair on the one side of her shoulder. He started kissing her back and she felt so good. She clutched the knife tightly and squeezed the tomato in response. His touch started making her crazy. She wanted him to kiss every inch of her body. His touch was heaven for her. She was melting like a ice cream with his touch.
He reached to her neck after kissing her back. She arched her back in response. He was nibbling and kissing every inch of her neck. She turned toward him after leaving the knife and tomato. As she turned, he captured her lips. He held her face between his hands and she encircled her arms around his neck. Their chest were pressing against each other. She was tucking his hair. He was kissing her lips softly , pouring his all love in the kiss. She was responding him with the equal flavour. Their body started burning with desires.
He picked her up , holding her waist and placed her on the kitchen’s platform without breaking the kiss. She encircled her legs around his hips and deepened the kiss , pulling him closer to herself. His hands started going inside her top but she pushed him away.
“Manik , I’m still married.” She said in sad tone , looking at him.
“It’s just happened in the moment , I’m sorry.” He apologised , coming close to her.
“I can understand.”
“Are you really fine , Nandini ?” Manik asked concernedly, cupping her face.
“I’m trying to think positive like you said and I’m feeling better. I have you , Manik with me. Every pain and every happiness are smaller in front of this. I’m happy and I love you a lot.” She confessed after touching her face with him.
“My happiness in your happiness, Nandini.” He kissed her forehead and she smiled to fullest.
“Now go and let me prepare the lunch.” She squeaked , pushing him away and jumped down the kitchen counter.
“Do you need any help , my star.” He said coming close to her face.
“No.. , Mr. Malhotra.” She said and pushed him out of the kitchen.
“That’s not fair. You can’t throw me out like this from my own kitchen. I really wanted to help you.”
“Go Manik , I’m hungry.” He made a sad pout and turned to walk. She was smiling broadly seeing his childish behaviour for the first time. She was falling in love with him more.
Shivansh was sitting on the chair in the dining room while Mukti was serving him the lunch. He looked at her and smiled slightly, seeing the way she was taking care for him.
“Thank you , Mukti.” These words automatically came out from his mouth. He thanked her from the core of his heart. She changed his point of view with in a second. He wasn’t feeling sad anymore. He was realising that he had always wished to see Manan happy and when they had finally found their happiness, then what’s the need to being sad.
“Shivansh, I’m your friend. Don’t say thank you , please.” She requested him.
“But , you deserve this , so thank you , Mukti. Thank you.” He again thanked her , grasping her wrist. She froze for a moment when his hands touched her.
“You have changed my life. I don’t know why , I was thinking so negative and wasn’t looking at the positive side. Everything things has two side , positive and negative , and we should always look at the positive side for a better life.” Mukti nodded her head , agreeing with him.
Then she looked at their hand. Shivansh instantly left her hand.
“Now , I shall leave.” She said after serving him the lunch.
“Won’t you join me.” He asked disappointedly because he was enjoying her company.
“I want to give you some alone time Shivansh to set your mind.” She answered him.
“You can go after having lunch with me.” He suggested, she nodded her head in response and sat beside him after pulling out the chair for herself.
“The food is yummy , Mukti. You cook nice , I didn’t even know this.” He praised her and she smiled slightly , looking at him.
“You don’t know anything about me , Shivansh.” She murmured under her breath , staring down at the table.
“Mukti , I’m thinking to meet Nandini and Manik. I want to free Nandini from this relationship by giving divorce to her. Will you come with me ?” He suddenly asked from Mukti.
“Why not ?” She agreed and he smiled.
“Shivansh, are you really fine ? Are you ready to face her?” Mukti asked concernedly, putting her hand on his hand which was kept on the table.
“I don’t know , may be.” He was doubtful. “I’m relieved after listening to whatever you said to me. I can face her , I want to see her happy, I want to see Manik happy with my eyes.” He told her but she could see that he was little lost.
“I’m with you.” She squeezed his hand and blinked her eyes. He smiled slightly at her and for the first time , he looked into her eyes deeply and forget everything. He found his world in her those black eyes.
“Shivansh, where you get lost ?” Mukti asked putting hand on his shoulder. He came on the earth back and shook his head avoiding eye contact with her. He didn’t understand what was that. But whatever it was , he felt like, he found everything.
What do you think , Shivansh is falling in love with Mukti ?
How do you find , Manan romance.
