Next day it was time for their discharge and Geet like a good girl sat on her wheel chair while Rano had gone to get their discharge papers ready but our dearest Maan the MSK was simply not agreeing to sit on his wheel chair.
Maan (really furious at the poor nurse, just not letting her do her job): I told you right, I am not going to seat on this thing bas. (nurse tried to protest) Don’t you get a simple NO (he roared and as the poor nurse again tried to argue he glared at her oops the deadly MSK stare and the poor nurse was literally shaking like a leaf and she looked at Geet making a pleading baby face to help her out and save her from the wrath of the MSK.)
Geet (an idea clicked her naughty mind and she smirked now you wait and watch Mr. Khurana what I do): Sister go and call Doctor Mehra (the old doctor who treated Maan) and she will cancel sir’s discharge papers after which he can happily stay here in this hospital (and Maan glared at Geet while her expression was like “My dear would be hubby you called for it” and Maan sighed remembering the doctor’s scolding last night)
Maan (really frustrated but finally giving up, he knew he wouldn’t win this one): Fine (and he thumped down on to the wheel chair and the nurse took a sigh of relief thanking Geet)
Dadi and Annie had appointed the best of medical care for both Maan and Geet.
Dadi (had come out to sit in the living area so that she could welcome her children back): Annie Beta, aap ne neeche wala karma theek karwa diya… so that Maan and Geet stay in it.
(Annie Beta, have you got the room on the ground floor cleaned… so that Maan and Geet stay in it.)
Annie: Ji Dadi…
Maan, Geet and Rano came back home. Annie did their Aarti as per Dadi’s instructions. As they came inside, Maan bend down to take Dadi’s blessing but she stopped him.
Dadi (as tears brimmed her eyes): Beta ho sake toh hume maaf dar dijiye… humne aap ko bahut bura bhala kaha (and she folded her hands as tears rolled down her eyes but Maan held her hands. After Geet gained consciousness, Rano had told Dadi about Maan’s innocence)
(Beta, if possible please forgive me… I cursed and abused you so badly)
Maan (shaking his head as tears threatened to fall from his eyes): Nahi Dadi… aap yeh kya kar rahe ho… isme aap ki koi galti nahi thi woh toh halat hi aise the ki sab galat ho gaya…
(No Dadi… what are you doing… it is not your fault, the circumstances where such that everything went wrong…)
Dadi (her heart wept that how could she curse her child, her Maan): Nahi Beta (but Maan shook his head as if pleading her to not torture him more by asking forgiveness and he wiped her tears. Maan couldn’t control and he hugged his Dadi tight as tears rolled out of his eyes, her warmth was what he had missed the most and Dadi rubbed his back trying desperately to absorb all his sufferings. Geet had tears of guilt in her eyes at what all he had to undergo due to her foolishness)
Annie (trying to lighten the situation, wiping her tears): Acha, ab roha, dhona band bhi karo yaar, mera make up kharab ho raha hai (and all smiled wiping their tears) Chalo Bhaiya, Bhabhi I have got the guest bedroom next to Dadi’s ready for the both of you, so that you guys don’t have to climb up (there were two bedrooms on ground floor, one in which Dadi was staying and the other was the guest room)
(Common on, now no more crying yaar, my make up is getting ruined)
Maan (his heart somewhere still feared what if she was right and he really did lust her): Nahi, mei uppar apne kamare mei hi rahoonga (his words as if pierced Geet’s already guilty heart as she knew why he was refusing to share the room with her and fresh tears rolled down her cheeks)
(No, I will stay in my own room upstairs)
Geet: Maan, aap ko doctor ne bilkul bhi physical exertion karne se mana kiya hai… isliye aap neech rahiye, I will shift to my room (she said with so much pain in her voice that it pierced his soul)
(Maan, doctor has strictly advised against physical exertion… hence you stay downstairs, I will shift to my room)
Annie (tried to interrupt): But Bhabhi, you are also not well na…
Geet (not letting her continue, trying to fake a smile even though her heart was weeping blood): Nahi Annie, don’t worry, I am much better, I…
Maan (but he cut her in, after all how could his heart bear to see his angel in pain): Kissi ko kahi bhi jane ki koi bhi jaroorat nahi hai, I and Geet will both stay in the guest room (saying so he left from there, while a slight smile crept in Geet’s lips as a hope rose in her heart that maybe, just maybe Maan would forgive her sins one day)
(No one needs to go anywhere, I and Geet will both stay in the guest room)
Dadi: Geet beta, aap bhi ja kar aaram kar lijiye before the physiotherapy session (and Geet nodded her head and since the doctor had advised her to walk around the house, she limped behind Maan)
(Geet beta, you also go and rest before the physiotherapy session)
But to her horror she saw Maan placing his pillow on the small couch in the guest room and her heart as if sank but she somehow controlled her tears, she knew she had to be strong to win her Maan back…
Geet (holding his hand): Maan this is way too small for you, you won’t be able to even rest properly (she pleaded)
Maan (jerking her hand away, as he showed his back to her making it pretty clear as to how annoyed he was): You don’t need to worry, I can easily fit on this couch (Geet felt really hurt Maan had never ever been so rude with her but she knew she deserved every bit of his anger and maybe much more)
Geet (tried to protest again): But how will you fit, it is smaller than you na (she argued)
Maan (really furious, arey Maan bhaiya kahan ka gussa kahan par nikalte ko, actually he was really very hurt for what she had done): Rukho (Wait), I will show you (he said in anger and he lied down on the couch but obviously it was way too small for him. But after all he was the MSK how could he lay down his weapons so easily and he twisted and turned trying really hard to adjust but no luck so he finally folded his legs somehow squeezing himself into the couch but alas his feet were still hanging out and Geet was like “Kya yaar haad hoti hai” (“This is the limit”) and she poked his shoulder as his back was facing her while his face was almost into the couch in his attempt to fit himself on it)
Geet (poking him again and Maan mumbled “Kya hai” (“What’s the matter”) peeping at her): Woh kya hai (she said showing him his feet and poor Maan was rendered completely speechless)
(What are those?)
Maan (but after all he is the MSK how can he accept defeat so soon na, especially when he is angry, turning his face away): Woh… woh… haan… woh mere pair hai and I like to keep them hanging while sleeping (and Geet was like “Grhhh, I will kill him“)
(that… that… yes… they are my legs and I like to keep them hanging while sleeping)
Geet (somehow controlling her frustration): Maan please zidd mat kariye na (Maan please don’t be so adamant)(but no effect on the adamant Maan) mei janti hoon aap yeh sab kyun kar rahe ho (I know why you are doing like this) but please don’t torture yourself like this. You aren’t well and this way how can you take complete bed rest. I know your whole body is already sore and is hurting more lying in this uncomfortable position (she tried to talk sense in him really worried about his health while Maan was once again blown away at his angel’s love and care but he maintained a stern look) I know why you don’t want to sleep on the bed (She said with so much pain in her voice that it pierced his soul) don’t worry, you sleep on the bed and I will manage on the couch.
Maan (his heart immediately screamed in unbearable pain as tears brimmed his eyes how could he let his angel suffer even a wee bit): Nahiii (controlling himself) It’s ok I will sleep on the bed and you too sleep there only (a small smile crept her lips as she smiled amidst tears that at least her Maan won’t have to face any more discomfort)
But as Maan went to the bed he placed the great wall of pillows in between the two sides and Geet’s heart almost died, she maybe for the first time realized the dept to which her hatred filled words had scared his noble heart and she just couldn’t control her tears anymore as she wept silently seeing him lie down on the bed facing his back to her side. She too quietly laid on her side turning to face his back as silent tears rolled down her eyes.
Her heart was just not able to bear how she had so mercilessly stabbed his loving heart, pouring acid on his selfless love. She felt as if her heart would explode in guilt and she slowly crept near him removing the pillow wall one by one and finally just not able to control her bleeding heart, she hugged him from behind. He wanted to jerk her hands away as her hatred filled words ringed in his ears but he just couldn’t as he felt her wetting his shirt from behind. How could he ever bear his angel’s tears and let it be as she literally stuck to him from head to toe, her hands wrapping around his hands as she almost crushed him as she tightly hugged him from the back, tears of guilt and pain flowing endless from her hazels.
Geet (faint whisper, almost hiccuping due to the tears): Mei janti hoon Maan ki maine aap ka bahut dil dukhaya hai par mera yakeen kijiye mera aisa bilkul bhi irrada nahi tha, mujhe toh laga tha ki aap mujse nafrat karenge mera khat par kar aur yeh deekh kar ki aap ki almari se char lakh rupiye gayab hai (Maan was shocked “Kya“) Haan maine toh socha tha ki aap ko lagega ki mei dhokebaaz aur matlabi hoon jiski neeyat sirf aapke paise par thi aur bas aap ka (she almost chocked as she continued) istemal karna chahati thi apni zarrorato ke liye (tears brimmed his eyes) aur aap mujse nafrat karenge aur mujhe bhool jaiyenge, mei aap aur Maa par boj nahi bana chahati thi (she continued sobbing as tears rolled non-stop from her eyes while Maan was totally shocked) mei jaanti thi ki aap Maa ka poora dhyan rakhoge kyunki aap rishto ka maan karna jaante hai aur mei galtiyo ki saaza unhe kabhi nahi denge par mujhe yeh andaza bhi nahi tha ki aap apne aap ko kasoorwar batayenge aur mujhe dhoondenge (she crushed more into him sobbing bitterly) Please Maan mujhe app jo bhi saaza dena chahe mujhe manzoor hogi but please istarah mujhe se muh na moriye, please Maan mei yeh saha nahi paoongi.
(I know that I have mercilessly hurt your heart but please believe me it wasn’t intentional, I had thought that you will hate me after reading my letter and after finding four lakh rupees missing from your cupboard (Maan was shocked “What”) Yeah, I had thought that you will think that I was a betrayer and selfish person who was only after your money and wanted to (she almost chocked as she continued) use you for my needs (tears brimmed his eyes) and you will hate me and you will forget me, I didn’t want to be a burden on you and Maa (she continued sobbing as tears rolled non-stop from her eyes while Maan was totally shocked) I knew that you will take complete care of Maa because you really know how to respect relationships and you will not give the punishment of my mistakes to Maa but I hadn’t thought even in my worst nightmares that you will declare yourself as the culprit and you will find me (she crushed more into him sobbing bitterly) Please Maan whatever punishment you bestow on me will be accepted by me but please don’t turn your face from me like this, please Maan I won’t be able to bear it.)
Maan (as tears threatened to fall): Mujhe tumse koi baat nahi karni (a tear rolled down his eyes) tum bahut buri ho, tum mujhe meri pari se juda karna chahati thi, (another tear rolled down his eyes) mujhe tumse koi baat nahi karni… (his heart wept and just not able to control himself he turned around and hugged his love almost crushing her in a bear hug just not wanting to let go
but then suddenly her words echoed in his ears that he lusted her and his grip loosen, Geet was taken aback) Kya tumhe sach mei mere chone se aisa laga ki woh mera pyaar nahi meri (he closed his eyes in extreme pain not even able to voice it but he somehow continued) hawas thi (and Geet was stunned, her heart wept blood OMG till what extent had she ruined his soul that he was still doubtful of his unconditional, selfless and divine love and she put her hand on his mouth vehemently denying it as tears rolled down her eyes)
(I don’t want to talk with you (a tear rolled down his eyes) you are very bad, you wanted to separate me from my angel, (another tear rolled down his eyes) I don’t want to talk with you… (his heart wept and just not able to control himself he turned around and hugged his love almost crushing her in a bear hug just not wanting to let go but then suddenly her words echoed in his ears that he lusted her and his grip loosen, Geet was taken aback) When I touched you did you really feel that it wasn’t my love but my (he closed his eyes in extreme pain not even able to voice it but he somehow continued) lust (and Geet was stunned, her heart wept blood OMG till what extent had she ruined his soul that he was still doubtful of his unconditional, selfless and divine love and she put her hand on his mouth vehemently denying it as tears rolled down her eyes))
Geet (as she almost chocked in pain): Nahi Maan aap ke pyaar se paak aur pavitra toh kuch ho hi nahi sakta. (she paused before continuing) Maine itna bara faisala toh kar liya tha aap se door jane ka par mei bahut swarthi ho gayi thi. (she sobbed as tears rolled down non-stop from her eyes) Mei jane se pehele aap ke pyaar ko ek bar mahasoos karna chahati thi jisse mei apni baki ki zindagi us ek pal mei bita doon. Mujhe toh laga tha ki mera khat par kar aap ko lagega ki mera pyaar paak nahi hai par (and she howled uncontrollably while Maan simply crushed her in a bear hug not letting her continue, shayad ab uski aatma ko suhoon mil jaye ki uske pyaar mei koi kami nahi thi)
(No Maan there is nothing in this world that can be more true and pure than you love. (she paused before continuing) I had taken such a big decision to stay away from you but I became really selfish. (she sobbed as tears rolled down non-stop from her eyes) Before leaving I wanted to feel your love once so that I could live my entire life in that one moment. I had thought that after reading my letter you will think that my love wasn’t pure but (and she howled uncontrollably while Maan simply crushed her in a bear hug not letting her continue, maybe now his soul would find the solace that they was nothing missing in his love))
