Recap: The magical first kiss between PaNi/ Manan !
Niti was not able to control her blush after that magical moment that had been created between her and Parth earlier that evening. It was definitely not a part of the shot, it was their moment and it had been captured for the show. She was roaming around her house, smiling and blushing like a lunatic.
Just then her phone rang and her heart beats increased expecting it to be Parth’s call. She did not dare to look up at her phone for a while and let it ring like that. After a while, when she could not resist anymore, she took it and picked it up without checking the caller id.
Niti: (shyly) Hello !
Veebha: Hello ! Niti are you alright ?
Niti: (shocked as well as confused) Veebha ? It’s you ?
Veebha: Yeah so what did you think ?
Niti: (disappointed) Nothing. Tell me what happened ?
Veebha: You tell me ! What happened ? I had to leave early today but believe me hadn’t it been an emergency I would have definitely stayed with you for that scene. I know you must have been so nervous ! How many takes did you have to give ? Oh my god I can’t even imagine what you must have had to face !
Niti: Veebha Veebha ! Relax ! I’m okay. It was nothing. Really. And it was over within 1 take.
Veebha: What ? 1 take ? Are you serious ? I can’t believe this ! And how come you’re so calm about it ? Aren’t you nervous or concerned about what just happened ?
Niti: Why would I be concerned about it ?
Veebha: Oh my god Niti, you’ve gone mad ! Seriously !
Niti: Veebha I’m fine. Okay ? So chill !
Although she was excited about the whole situation, as opposed to Veebha’s expectation of her behavior, but she was also a bit disappointed on not receiving a single call from Parth. She being the girl would not have to be the one to call first was what she made herself believe and therefore kept waiting for his call.
Parth wanted to talk to Niti as soon as they were done with the kiss scene, which was actually not a scene for him, and he hoped it wasn’t just a scene for Niti as well. But he was well aware of a girl’s nervousness after such situations and therefore wanted to give Niti her space. That was a reason he did not talk to her instantly on set. They had to come face to face for the other scenes after that as well, but apart from that they did not initiate any conversation. He even didn’t go up to her after pack up as he thought she might feel uncomfortable talking in front of the entire crew. But now that he was home, and could not get his thoughts back from wavering into the direction of the “Kiss”, he wanted to talk to her, or more so, he wanted to see her ! He was so excited about it all, he instantly got ready and left for her place.
He drove as fast as possible and on reaching her building, parked his car in the nearest parking spot instantly and rushed upstairs to her apartment through the stairs. But on finally reaching her apartment, he waited there, breathing heavily because of climbing the stairs, in a dilemma whether to go inside or not. He wanted to see her but was also still confused whether she would be in a situation to face him. He was waiting there thinking over whether to go in or not when the door opened and he looked up to find Niti standing there in a casual blue jeans and a tank top, her hair tied in a high pony tail and her bag in her hand. They kept looking into each other’s eyes for a long time reliving the kiss in their minds. After a long pause, Parth spoke up,
Parth: Umm sorry to disturb you. You seem to be going somewhere so I’ll just leave.
He turned around to leave but Niti held his hand instantly and he turned back to look at her. As their eyes met again, she let go of his hand with a blushed smile on her face and continued,
Niti: You can come in. Actually, I was coming to your place. And now that you’re here, come in.
As soon as he enters and is about to get seated on the couch, he notices the balcony ahead of him and recalls the time when they had had a fight in there and he had left Niti out there alone. He moved to the balcony while Niti went inside her room to leave her purse. She returned to find the couch empty which confused her at first but then she noticed the balcony door open and therefore moved in there to join him.
He was standing there gazing at the stars in the sky, with his hands resting on the railing. She quietly moved closer and joined him there with some distance between them and placed her hands on the railing as well. Everything was calm and soothing out there and he realised her presence beside him through her soft breath that had been increasing because of her nervousness of being with him in such a situation. He slowly lifted his hand off the railing and placed it on her hand beside him which made her body turn cold and start shivering. She did not dare to look at him and therefore moved her gaze down towards their hands and kept staring at them for a while. While she had her gaze on their hands, he could not take his eyes off her serene beauty being reflected in the moonlight. He looked at her long eyelashes that had been flickering every now and then, looking at his hand on hers, her lips being bitten by her teeth in the confusion whether to let go of his hand or let it rest on her. Her lips reminded him again of their kiss and he moved closer to her which again increased her heart beat. On sensing him coming closer, she tried to step backwards but he stopped her by removing his hand from hers and grabbing her waist with that one hand. He pulled her closer and their bodies collided. He had his left hand on the railing and his right hand around her waist grabbing her tight to not let go. She was quite aware of his strength by now and therefore failed in her efforts to let go. She stayed there with her head bent low and her eyes gazing in all directions except towards his face.
He slowly lifted his hand off the railing and placed it on her chin making her raise her head towards him. She resisted at first but he succeeded and she looked up at him, her eyes flickering constantly, her heart beating fast. She instantly knew what was coming her way and even though she wanted it, she was still nervous, trying to resist but unable to do so. He then raised his hand towards her hair and swiftly let her hair lose from the pony tail and they flung open on her shoulders just the way he always liked it.
He moved closer and sealed her dry lips with his, moving his body closer to her. She again grabbed his tee firmly but did give in to the kiss. She moulded her lips on to his and pulled him closer. He was surprised as well as happy by her reaction and continued to caress her lips through his own and her waist with his hands.
He then let go of her lips, not leaving his hold on her waist, resting his forehead on hers. With their eyes closed, both of them kept sensing each other’s breathing and enjoying the moment, grasping it completely.
Precap: Niti’s birthday. What surprises does Parth have in store for her ?
Tomorrow: Manan ff. Has Nandini accepted dhruv’s proposal ? If yes, how would Manik react to it ?
