Recap: Manik and Nandini’s first bike ride, ice cream sharing, growing friendship in the middle of the night.
Manik clicks a picture of Nandini in his phone and just after that his phone rings,
Manik: Hello !
Whoever the other person is on the other side, says something that makes Manik furious and he replies,
Manik: (angrily) Okay ! Wait for me ! I’m reaching in 10 minutes.
Nandini gets tensed on seeing the angry Manik. She had seen that face of him before when the goons had come to harass her. She knew this anger had a really furious fight to end with. She was hell scared but did not dare ask him anything.
Manik disconnected the call, held Nandini’s hand and dragged her to the bike. He started the bike and Nandini quickly climbed up without questioning on anything. Manik drove off at the speed of a bullet. Nandini’s loose hair were flowing with the wind and her face was cold with the cool breeze brushing her face due to the acceleration. This time she did not even dare touch his shoulders as she was scared he might get wrathful.
7 minutes later when Manik stopped the bike, Nandini opened her eyes which she had shut tight fearing the high speed at which they had been travelling. Her eyes wet with tears because of the cool breeze combined with the high speed. She brushed her eyes to wipe out the tears that blocked a clear vision only to find herself outside a police station.
Manik parked the bike and rushed inside followed by Nandini. She was very confused at having landed up in a police station but Manik wasn’t paying any attention to her at that point of time and she therefore could not ask anything. She simply followed him until they reached the police inspector’s desk which was surrounded by 3 other people.
Manik: (talking to one of the 3 people) Where is he ?
The other person pointed at another person standing opposite to them and Manik turned to face him with his face featuring anger !
Manik: (moving towards that man and talking to him) So, I believe you need to take driving lessons ? Because as far as I have seen, your pathetic driving could have killed that little kid today.
Nandini’s eyes widen on hearing that and she gives out an “ohh!!” expression louder than required. Manik instantly got distracted and turned to look at her. On seeing her scared expressions, he indicated the third person standing there to take her outside and wait there with her so that she would not have to experience the scene. The man understood Manik’s indication quickly and asked Nandini to move out with him.
After having confirmation that Nandini had moved out, Manik continued,
Manik: (to the inspector) Just arrest him sir. I am ready to give my statement that the driver was this man.
Culprit: How can he arrest me just like that ? I’m telling you it wasn’t me. You must have misread the car number.
Manik started laughing at that and the inspector, the culprit and the third person who was his lawyer kept looking at him in astonishment.
Inspector: Mr. Malhotra, this is a serious discussion. What is there to laugh ? And besides he is right ! We cannot just arrest him based on your complain as it is possible you must have misread the number.
Manik: (stops laughing and straightens his face) Manik Malhotra is never wrong ! And neither does he say anything without any proof.
He quickly takes out his phone and shows a picture to the inspector. The picture was of the car that he had clicked quickly to keep as a proof before taking the kid to the hospital.
Manik: You can see and identify the road as well. It is the same road where the accident took place and it is his car.
Inspector: Now this would do. Thank you Mr. Malhotra.
The inspector then arrests the culprit and asks Manik to record his statement.
Nandini is feeling restless outside as she wishes to know the whole matter and therefore talks to Manik’s manager who had been standing with her.
Nandini: What is all this going on ? Who is that man ? And what happened to that kid ?
Manager: That man hit a small kid on his bicycle and ran away. The boy was severely injured.
Nandini: Oh my god ! Is he okay now ?
Manager: Yes he was immediately hospitalised and is much better now. Manik sir quickly took him to the hospital. And before that he took a picture of the car that had been running away. Based on that he filed a case.
Nandini: oh ! And he took the boy to the hospital ?
Manager: Not just that, he took care of all the treatment and made the complete payment. And it was good as the boy’s parents weren’t really well off to be able to afford that.
Nandini had tears in her eyes on hearing about what Manik had done for a stranger. She saw Manik coming out of the police station and kept staring at him lovingly thinking about the good deed he had done that day. He did not realize but he had gained a lot of respect for himself in Nandini’s heart.
Manik: (on reaching her) Where are you lost ?
Nandini: You have a beautiful heart Manik.
Precap: Last day for muicana registration. Would Manik and Navya find a third band member ? Would fab 5 be able to help them for that ?
Sorry friends I know today’s part does not match with the precap I had mentioned on the earlier part. But pakka the next part would definitely match the precap.
Hope you all enjoyed today’s part.
Thank you !
