They both had their dinner..then manik gave her medicine.. Then both went towards their room to sleep..
Manik’s pov :
Today was indeed a very big day..I came to know that nandini is none other than my fvrt uncle & aunty’s daughter..I never thought that such terrible incidents will happen with her…I thought she is happy wherever she is..I thought we will never met ..but may b it was fate…today I saw pain in her eyes..uncle always used to say about nandini..he used to say nandini is a very naughty girl..she always do mischiefs in her cls & principal always complaints about her..she is girl full of lyf..without seeing her I always used to admire her for her personality..but now no one can say that she is that same nandini.. She doesn’t even give a proper smile..all time she just gives a fake smile..she thinks that I won’t recognise her fake smile..she is wrong..I know that she is faking it..once she loved fireflies..but now she doesn’t blv in them..no nandu..I won’t let u lost in darkness.. I’ll bring shines in your lyf for ur parents..I’ll bring ur fireflies in your lyf again & that’s a promise nandu…
