Manik took me to his car and carefully made me sit with him in the back seat as he ordered the driver totake me to Murthy Mansion.
The whole ride to my home was quite and we were just holding each others hands tightly as we are gonna disappear if we leave each others hands. I could feel his pain and now I am regretting my decision and I soon much wanted to comfort me and apologize to him for all the suffering that he got through in all this years. Just then driver informed us that we reached Murthy Mansion.
End of Nandani’s pov.
Driver informed us that we reached Nandani’s house so I gestured her to move inside while i told the driver to go back to mall to receive FAB4 and even warned him that no one should knowwhere me and Nandani are and even that that we are even together.
Listening to my warning the driver nodded his head and move from their as fast as he could while I laughed watching his reaction.
I went inside Nandani’s room where she was seating and looked the door.
I knew she wanted to talk so I just went and seat beside her.I softly held her hand and she immediately hugged me tightly and was crying softly,I just caressed her hairs as I knew she have to take this all out.
After half and hour I felt her relaxing against me.
Are you ok?
I asked her.
I am Ok Manik….Thank you.
She said looking deeply in my eyes.
Thank you for what?
I asked her.
For being their for me always.
She replied still looking in my eyes.I felt like someone have stab my heart after hearing her.
I wasn’t there for you everytime Nandani.I didn’t even know about your condition after I left.
I whispered in her ears.I felt her getting stiff again against me.
What are you talking about?
This time she looked away, she wasn’t able to look at my eyes.I made her look at me and I could see the freshly made tears filling in her eyes so I just softly wiped them and place a small peckin her forehead
Aunty was telling mom about you as they thought I was asleep but I was awake and i know how much you suffered because of me.
A lone tears ascaped from my eyes and she immediately wipped itoff and nodded no.
I am really sorry Nandani I made you suffer I am really sorry.
I said looking at her eyes and i could see her eyes looking at me with full of respect and love….
LOVE?From where does that come from?
Well I love her….yes I do love her since the time I understood what is love but what about her?
I can’t tell her about my feelings,maybe just because of my stupid confesion,I can’t afford loosing her friendship.
End of Manik’s pov.
Manik and Nandani were still in their thoughts.Manik was thinking about his love for Nandani while nandani was also realizing her feelings for manik.She knew this feeling is not only friendship but more than that.
Manik can we just forget our past and start afresh?
Nandani said as she came out of her thoughts and hearing her speak Manik too came out ofhis thoughts.
But what about the pain you had suffer just because of me?
Manik said and pain was audible in his voice even if he tried not to show his pain.
Manik the past is only going to hurt us but our future will be something that we will make it,so it’s better if we forget our past and focuse on our future,What’s say? Nandani exclaimed and asked him as she know the past is hurting manik and it was important make him forget all that other wise he may land up hurting himself for hurting her.
How can you say that easily Nandani?
Manik said painfully.
Because I know you also suffered in this years!Just because you don’t let anyone see your pain you think I won’t know this!Manik I am your bestfriend!I know you inside out,maybe you can fool others but not me because this eyes of yours na never lie or hide something from me even if your heart and and mind do so! Nandani said smilling and pulling his cheeks while saying the last line.
Ok you win I loose!Soo Miss Nandani Murthy will you do the honor of becoming my bestfriend again?
Manik said while taking his hand out for hand shake.
It will be a pleasure to be your bestfriend Mr.Manik Malhotra!
Nandani said while shaking her hands with manik and soon they hugged eachother for a long time.
