Geet kept on staring at him completely lost in his mesmerizing eyes which were the mirror of his soul which reflected his true, pure and unconditional love for her and she simply wished to submerge in his majestic eyes forever while Maan smiled his ever so charming smile as he too wanted to simply lose himself in his Mishti.
They remained like that till eternity wishing for time to stop at the moment so that they could remain lost in their dreamy paradise for life but alas they sweet eye-lock was broken as Maan’s phone beeped. Geet blushed deep red realizing how shamelessly she was drooling over her Jaan while Maan just loved his blushing Mishti and he kissed her cute nose. Hayee Geet blushed all the more and even her nose turned all pink, hehe , while Maan chuckled seeing his effect on her.
When suddenly her harsh words echoed in her ears ad her expressions changed from eternal happiness to agony depicting the immense pain her rude words had caused her Maan.
Maan (worried about her health as he witnessed the change in expression): What happened Geet? Is it hurting a lot? (Tears brimmed her eyes at his undying love and care. It was as if he lived just for her and her happiness. She shook her head amidst tears and Maan heaved a sigh of relief) Then what happened Jaan?
Geet (almost teary): I really hurt you na (and a tear escaped her eyes)
Her tear pricked Maan’s heart as tears brimmed his eyes as if living his Jaan pain and he vehemently shook his head that his angel could never ever hurt him and he kissed her tears away.
Maan (kissing her eyes as if pleasing her to not shed his precious jewels): Nahi Jaan, you can never hurt me. Please don’t cry, you know I just can’t bear to see you in pain (he gently took her hand and placed it over his heart) it aches inside to see your tears Jaan (And she was truly overwhelmed at his divine love and care and somehow controlled her tears)
Maan (gently lowered her down, tugging her in the comforter, it was as if his heart could feel her discomfort even before she felt it as if she truly resided in her heart): You must be hurting na, you have been sitting for so long Jaan (And Geet almost choked with emotions, how he just knew every single emotion she was feeling. His out of this world love made her absolutely speechless) You take rest Mishti, I will just be back.
Maan was about to leave when Geet held his hand. He raised an eyebrow as if asking “Kya hua, Jaan” (“What happened, Jaan”). She tugged at his hand as her eyes pleaded him to stay and he immediately sat down next to her gently caressing her forehead.
Maan: Kya baat hai, Jaan. (What is the matter, Jaan)
Geet: Maan I am feeling really guilty ki aap meri wajah se apne kaam ko, apni ibadat ho nazar andaaz kar rahe ho. Mujhe yeh bilkul bhi acha nahi lagta.
(Maan I am feeling really guilty that due to me you are not paying attention to your work, your worship. I am not liking it at all.)
Maan (Hayee… he just kept falling more and more in love with his Jaan, how much she loved and cared for him, softly caressing her cheeks): Aisa kuch bhi nahi hai Jaan, you don’t worry I will manage it all.
(It is nothing like that Jaan, you don’t worry I will manage it all.)
Geet (cutely pouting in anger): Haan, jaise apne subah kiya tha by denying the deal… (oops poor Maan, his Jaan knew how to shut him up) Boliye (ab bechara kya bolega apni Sherni ke aage)
(Yeah, just like you handled in the morning by denying the deal… (oops poor Maan, his Jaan knew how to shut him up) Tell me (What the poor guy would say in front of his tigress))
Maan: Nahi… woh… nahi…
Geet: Kya nahi… nahi… (softening) Maan do gante ki hi toh baat hai aap jaiye aur meeting and deal sign karke aaiye, ghar pe sab hai na… please Maan mere liye, apni Geet ke liye, maan jaiye na Maan…
(What no… no… (softening) Maan it is just a matter of two hours, go and finish the meeting and sign the deal, everyone is there at home na… please Maan for me, for your Geet, please agree na Maan…)
Hayee… she requested so sweetly how could he not give in to her wish, he who would have laid his life at her single demand without even thinking once.
Maan: Acha theek hai (Ok fine) (Geet beamed and Maan smiled to see her Jaan happy) But promise you will not do any mischief and will take care of yourself and not exert. (And she nodded like an obedient kid). You rest now Jaan and I will inform Adi to keep the meeting post lunch and I will leave after feeding you, theek hai (Ok) (and she smiled at him)
At lunch time, Maan lovingly fed his Jaan and gently carried her down so that she wouldn’t get bored in his absence. As he settled her on the living room lounge.
Dadi: Chalo Geet beta, I will put your favorite movie and we both will watch it till Maan comes back from office (and Geet beamed all excited like a small kid while Maan shook his head at her cute antics as he left for office)
Annie had extra classes in college and she called to inform home that she would be late so Dadi and Geet started watching the movie alone when suddenly there was a scene in the movie when the heroine so lovingly cooked for the hero and poor Geet became sad as she too longed to make something for her Maan.
Dadi (seeing her sad and gloomy eyes, wanting to returns the spark back in them): Chalo, we will make Maan’s favorite chocolate mousse today.
Geet (beamed as her eyes sparkled in pure happiness): Sachi
Dadi: Muchi (Dadi said pulling Geet’s cheeks) I will ask Nakul to take out all the stuff. (and Geet nodded super excited)
After some time…
Nakul: Dadima, sab taiyari ho gayi hai, aap aajaiye. (Dadima, I have done all the preparations, please come)
Geet (making a puppy sad face): Mujhe bhi banana hai… (I also want to make)
Dadi: Nahi Geet Beta, abhi aap puri tarah theek nahi hue ho na (Geet made a sad baby face with big puppy dog eyes and Dadi shook her head at her cute antics) Acha theek hai, we will place your reclining chair in the kitchen and you can monitor from there, theek hai (and finally Geet smiled)
(No Geet Beta, you have not even completely recovered (Geet made a sad baby face with big puppy dog eyes and Dadi shook her head at her cute antics) Ok fine, we will place your reclining chair in the kitchen and you can monitor from there, ok (and finally Geet smiled))
So the stage was set. Dadi started preparing the mousse as Geet keenly watched and even helped her if any job could be done while sitting. They were truly enjoying themselves when the door bell rang.
Nakul: Dadima, Panditji aaye hai. (Dadima, Panditji has come)
Dadi: Arey haan, hum toh bhool hi gaye the, I had called him for taking out yours and Maan’s marriage date (Hayee… Geet blushed tomato red). Hum abhi aate hai beta and Nakul you stir the mousse and do as Geet says.
(Oh, I almost forgot, I had called him for taking out yours and Maan’s marriage date (Hayee… Geet blushed tomato red). I will just be back beta and Nakul you stir the mousse and do as Geet says.)
Dadi went to talk with Panditji as Nakul took over the cooking under Geet’s supervision but he just wasn’t able to manage the double boiler which was being used to melt the chocolate for the mousse.
Nakul (panicking): Didiji, kya karoon yeh chocolate jal jaiyegi…
(Didiji, what should I do, this chocolate will burn…)
Geet too got tensed and not knowing what better to do she somehow managed to get up and took over the cooking from Nakul. Her wound hurt a little but soon she was lost in making the mousse. The chocolate had just melted when Maan returned home.
Maan (on seeing Dadi with Panditji): Dadi, Geet kahan hai? (Dadi, where is Geet?)
Dadi: She is supervising Nakul, beta.
Maan: Ok, dadi.
And Maan went towards the kitchen to surprise his Jaan but as he approached the kitchen he was shocked to see his injured Mishti cooking. She toh didn’t even realize that she was holding her wound making it pretty obvious to Maan that she must be hurting and was still making chocolate mousse for him.
Maan (just losing his temper to see her in pain and exerting in such a condition and he roared): Geeettt….
Poor Geet he scared the living daylights out of her and she almost lost her balance hearing him scream while Maan panicked in fear that she might get hurt and rushed forward to hold her.
He somehow calmed himself so as not to scream at her in such a condition but he was really very very angry on her. He silently scooped her in his arms and carried her to his room but didn’t even once look at her.
He softly placed her on the bed and rushed to get the first aid kit. He gently raised her kurta so as to access the wound and very carefully removed the bandage. He heaved a sigh of relief to see that it hadn’t worsened and he gently cleansed it as tears brimmed his eyes at the amount of pain his Jaan must be undergoing, his heart ached to see her in pain and he very gently bandaged her wound.
But he was still extremely angry at her for not taking care of his Jaan when Geet coughed a little as her throat when completely dry, tears brimming her tears, since her Maan wasn’t even looking at her, she knew she had really angered him. Maan immediately made her drink water but still no eye contact. He was really mad at her but didn’t want to shout at her so he tucked her in the comforter and was about to leave when Geet held his hand. But he didn’t turn around today, like he always did, she tugged at his hand but still no response. Tears rolled down Geet’s eyes just not able to bear his silence.
Geet: Please Maan aap mujhe datiye, mujh par chilaiye but aise chup mat rahiye, aap ki chupi mujse bardarst nahi hoti.
(Please Maan you scold me, you shout at me but please don’t remain silent like this, I can’t bear your silence.)
Maan (his emotional turmoil blurted out in form of anger as he turned around to finally face her): Mai kaun hota hu gussa karne wala, mera haq hi kahan hai (Geet shook her head as tears rolled down her cheeks, though Maan simply couldn’t bear her tears but he was really hurt, his heart was aching deep inside to see her in pain as tears brimmed his eyes)
(Who I am to be angry, what right do I have?)
Geet (in immense pain): Please aisa mat kahiye na, aap ka toh pura haq hai… (she said with so much pain in her voice that how could her Maan bear it)
(Please don’t say like that, you have all the rights)
Maan (sitting next to her, wiping her tears): Phir bolo tumne meri Jaan ko, meri Mishti ko aise kyun tarpaya, use itna dard kyun diya, batao mujhe (raising his voice and shaking her shoulders as a tear rolled down his eyes) jawab do (Geet simply choked with emotions, he loved her so much that he was fighting with her for her, how could he love her so much, his love really had no limits, no depths, no boundaries) kuch bolti kyun nahi ho tum, jawab do mujhe
(Then tell me how could you give so much pain, so much agony to my Jaan, my Mishti, tell me (raising his voice and shaking her shoulders as a tear rolled down his eyes) answer me (Geet simply choked with emotions, he loved her so much that he was fighting with her for her, how could he love her so much, his love really had no limits, no depths, no boundaries) Why don’t you say something answer me dam it)
Geet (holding her ears making sad baby face with puppy dog eyes): Apni Geet ko maaf kar dijiye na please. I promise I will take proper rest, please Jaan
(Please forgive your Geet. I promise I will take proper rest, please Jaan)
Hayee how could her Maan not melt at his love, his Mishti and he immediately held her hands shaking his head.
Maan: But promise you will not exert and take complete rest now (and Geet nodded her head) My good Mishti (he said caressing her forehead and Geet smiled)
Maan was about to leave when he noticed that though she was smiling but the sparkle was missing in her eyes as if she was longing for something. Maan got confused when he saw her eying his lips and sighing in longing and he understood what his Mishti wanted.
Maan (chuckling slightly) So my would be wifey wants kissy wissy (hayee… Geet blushed, he really could read her like a book. Maan showered her face with kisses before he kissed his Mishti gently on her lips) Chalo now you rest (he continued winking at her) We will continue after that (he said eying her lips and she blushed)
Precap: Maaneet’s cute sweet maybe naughty moments
