“Catch… catch…” Manan instantly pulled away as they heard Muskan’s voice.
As they moved their eyes down at Muskan. they sighed with relief because she was still sleeping, she had said in sleep.
“Thank God, now we don’t have to answer her,” Nandini uttered after placing his hand on her heart. They both smiled at each other.
“Now I think we should sleep.” As Manik said, she nodded her head.
They wished Aryan Good night before falling asleep, gazing at each other. Manik slept hugging Aru and Nandini slept, placing her hand over Muskan. Manan woke up one by one in the middle of the night to check Aryan’s lower and change it if it was wet and change the sheet on which he was sleeping. It was their first night as the parents and they were taking proper care of him. Aryan was really lucky to have such parents.
It was a new morning for Manan because their lifeline Aryan was with them. Nandini woke up from deep slumber and a precious smile flashed on her face as he saw Manik playing with Aru. He was sitting in front of him, looking super adorable. He was balancing himself to sit because he was learning to sit.
Manik was placing his hands in front of his face, and he was saying ‘Pi-ka-boo’ after removing his hands, Aryan was laughing loudly and cutely, showing his toothless smile. This is one of her precious mornings. She had always wished for this. Now her family was complete. Now she wanted nothing from God. Now she wanted to cherish them.
“Aru…” they both shouted as Aru fell on the bed with a thud on the soft mattress.
Manik instantly scooped into his arm and rocked him after cradling to his chest before he could cry. He passed a beatific smile to his father, Manik smiled back and placed a soft kiss on his forehead. Nandini was just gazing at them fondly after sitting up on the bed.
“Good morning, Mumma Angel.” He wished her as he swayed his eyes from Aru to her.
“Good morning, Papa Manik.” She replied cheerfully and sat beside them.
“Good morning, Aru.” She leaned down and placed a kiss on his cheek.
“And who will kiss me?” Manik asked, raising his brows.
She smiled at him before giving him a quick kiss on his lips. As she moved back, he grasped her hair and kissed her lips passionately after pulling her closer to himself. From the other hand, he was holding Aru who was busy playing with the chain which was hanging around his neck and his eyes were at them.
“Your lips are so delicious, Angel, I just love them.” He whispered huskily, stroking her lower lip with his thumb as they broke the kiss.
She smiled at him before moving her eyes down at Aru who was staring at them with open mouth and with his innocent eyes.
“Manik, look at his expression. Aww… he is so cute.” She squealed cheerfully. Manik found both of them cute and smiled widely at them.
“Oh shit, he peed on me.” Manik squeezed his eyes shut and pursed his lips. Aru giggled naughtily like he knew what he did.
She smiled at Manik’s expression. “Aru, I think your daddy is competing with you in cuteness.”
“No, never, no comparison. Our Aru is super cute.” He placed a kiss on his cheek.
“Now, give him to me, I’m changing his lower. You go and get fresh.” Manik nodded and gave Aru to Nandini. She removed his lower after placing him gently on his front over her lap.
“Daddy is just coming, Aru.” He tapped his cheek and climbed down the bed.
“By the way when did you wake up and Muskan leave?” She asked when Manik gave a new lower of Aru to her from the basket.
“A few minutes ago only.” He told her and strolled to the bathroom.
“Now Aru will play with Mumma.” She made him sit on her lap and caressed her nose with his tiny nose.
“Ae…ae…” he cooed adorably in response.
“You know your voice is so sweet. Mumma loves it, Mumma loves everything about you.” She kissed all over his face and he was gurgling delightfully.
When Manik came back from the bathroom after getting fresh, he found Nandini playing with Aryan, standing in front of the mirror. She was holding Aryan in her one hand. Aryan was laughing cheerfully and adorably when Nandini was moving him closer to the mirror. “Bo…” she was shouting just to entertain him. His laugh was so soothing to her heart. Her eyes were shimmering with happiness. Manik was so glad and thankful to God for bringing back happiness in his Angel’s life.
He strolled to her. They glanced at each other through the mirror and passed a beatific smile. He grasped her waist from behind, and as he yanked her to himself, electricity passed down her spine.
“I love you so much, Angel.” He whispered in her ear before planting a kiss on her cheek. She shivered as his lips touched her skin. His mare touch was enough to drive her crazy and burn her whole body with the desires.
“I,” Before Nandini could respond him, Aru cried out.
“Aww… are you jealous, Aru? Mumma loves you more.” Nandini kissed his forehead.
Manik left her waist and pouted in anger dramatically at her through the mirror. “So you love him more than me?” He crossed his arms around his chest.
She turned toward him and chuckled. “I know you’re not jealous, so stop acting, Mr Malhotra.”
He snaked his arm around her waist and yanked her to himself. “You know me so well, Mrs Malhotra.”
“I know you more than you know yourself.” As she answered him, he made O shape mouth. Poor Aryan became a sandwich between his Mumma and daddy.
“I love you so much for filling my life with immense happiness. You healed me, Mr Perfect. Now I’m a strong woman, nothing can break me. It just happened because of you.” She thanked him from the core of her heart, her happiness was vividly visible in her eyes.
As he shook his head, she narrowed her brows bemusedly. “No, it happened because you fought with your past, trusted me and gave a second chance to your life and love. You were born strong, Angel, I just became a medium.” She was just looking at him in utter disbelief.
“How do you always give the credit of your goodness to me?” She asked incredulously.
“Because you deserve the credit for being so strong and fighting back with your inner fear, fear of trusting me after Arjun. It’s a big thing.” She shook her head again in disbelief.
“You’re a gem, Manik, truly. I’m glad to have you in my life. I love you so much.” She confessed wholeheartedly, gazing at him deeply.
“I,” now before Manik could confess, Aryan cried out again.
Manan smiled at him. “We love you, Aru.” As they both kissed his cheeks together, an adorable smile flashed on his innocent face.
