She broke the hug after a few minutes.
“Umm… I think you should leave. I’ll call you later, Manik.” She spoke with no emotion in her voice after turning around, facing her back to me.
What the fuck?
I came in front of her.
“No offence, baby. But honestly, are you fucking crazy?” I asked her, pinching the bridge of my nose in frustration.
She was driving me crazy.
A few minutes back she was a crying mess and now she’s behaving as nothing happened at all.
“Yes, I am,” She yelled, taking me by surprise and wiped the tears that escaped down her cheeks.
“What is going on? Talk to me,” I asked in a soft voice, moving close to her and she shook her head.
“I don’t know, Manik. I’m fucking lost.” She again broke down in front of me and I pulled her closer to my chest, hugging her tightly.
Why she’s behaving like this?
“I’m sorry for yelling at you like that. Fuck!” She took few steps back from me and let out a huge sigh, placing her hands on her hips.
“Umm… So is that a yes? You want me to leave?” I asked in an unsure voice as I have no fucking idea what to do. I don’t want to leave. I’m certain that something is bothering her, so how could I leave her like that?
“No,” She mumbled silently, staring into my eyes. After taking a deep breath, she continued, “I heard your and Cabir’s conversation today,” She whispered while I stood there gazing at her in complete confusion.
“I know you’re are hiding something from me, Manik.” She blurted out, taking me off guard.
“What?” I rushed to her in utter shock and she told me everything about what happened on the call while I nodded my head in disbelief.
Seriously? For this, she cried so much?
Dumbass Cabir, surely I’m gonna kill him!
“I trust you, Manik.” She whispered after cupping my face in her palm and my eyes softened on her innocence.
“Yeah, that’s why you cried?” I asked raising my eyebrows at her.
“I just don’t trust my destiny.” She mumbled, not meeting her gaze to me. She was guilty for crying and doubting me.
Sometimes, she looks so innocent that I can’t even get angry at her. I know for her it’s so difficult to trust someone, but she trusts me. At least she doesn’t hide her tears from me. And I’m glad to know this. My baby.
“Let’s go,” I said taking her hand in my hand.
“Where?” She asked, confused.
“You trust me, right?” I asked and she nodded immediately, wiping her tears.
I picked her into my arms in a bridal style, gazing into her hazel eyes.
Making her sit in the backseat I asked the driver to take us where I prepared her surprise.
Nandini has been looking at me the entire time, and trust me she is looking so innocent, just like a child. I can vividly see how much efforts she has taken to stop herself to not think any shit.
If someone else was at her place, she would have thought even worse. But she, she trusted me. She confronted me. She didn’t let the misunderstanding ruin our relation. And this is the purest thing about us.
Finally, she’s taking efforts for me.
I held her waist suddenly making her jump and then pulled her on my lap.
“Manik.” She eyed the driver.
“I don’t care,” I uttered giving a quick peck on her nose, making her smile. She snuggled more in my chest. I know she needs this. I know she needs my warmth right now.
Soon, we reached. I again carried her in my arms. Trust me, I just need an excuse to carry her here and there. I just love the way, she wraps her arms around my neck, the way she looks at me, her eyes, which held pure innocence. It really feels like magic.
I walked for another fifteen minutes making Nandini even more curious.
“Where are we going, Manik?” She asked, curious now.
“We are going to see that thing, which I was hiding from you. Don’t you wanna see it?” I asked smiling at her innocent face, while she nodded her head, taking a deep breath.
I asked. “Are you ready?” I just smiled, putting her on the ground.
“Look,” I pointed at the sky and she turned hearing a sound.
“Look,” He said and pointed at the sky. I looked in that direction from where I heard some sound and what I saw is enough to hitch my breath.
“I love you, Baby girl.” Yeah, that what I saw written in the Sparkles of the fireworks.
So he was planning this for me? This is the thing he was hiding from me? Oh god!
Is it a dream?
“Nandini” His voice drew my attention to him but I didn’t turn towards him. My heart is beating so fast. I just can’t put in words what I’m feeling right now. He came close to me and wrapped his arms around my waist pulling me into him from behind, more close to his heart. I can clearly hear his soothing heartbeat, which sends shivers down my spine.
This feeling is so soothing!
“I really don’t know how to give those big-big speeches, I really suck in giving speeches, Nandini.” He said pouting making me chuckled at his cute antics.
“Nandini,” He whispered turning me towards him, he cupped my face in his palm and continued, “All I want to say is, you’re my precious possession. I just can’t imagine my life without you, You’re the queen who rules Manik Malhotras’s heart. A billionaire who never fell in love is now whipped. Yes, but only for you, my love.” He whispered, gazing deep into my eyes, the sparkle in his eyes, whenever he looks at me sends a shiver down my spine, making me go all weak on my knees. His breath is caressing my lips and all I could name think was magic.
“I love you, Nandini. I love you so so so much.” My heartbeat accelerated as he said those words and my love for him grew stronger because he completely captured my soul.
“You are like a dream that I don’t want to wake up from,” I whispered, staring into his eyes. “I love you too, Manik Malhotra, always and forever, you’re my home Manik, you’re are my heaven.” As soon as I uttered those words after clasping his face in my palm, he sealed our love by fusing his lips on mine. Tears rolled down my eyes feeling him this close. I never thought fairy tales could be real until he came.
My Manik, My home, My heaven!
