A perfect and an imperfect (Episode 12)
Dev shouted, “because i love you dammit… i can’t see you with someone else…”both manu and karthik were shocked hearing his confession. Manu did not utter a word she could not come out of the shock. Karthik asked, “when did you start loving her? And why did not you tell anyone including me?” Dev said, “how can i? You both became so close.. i thought if i confess my love, i might loose my friendship..”
Karthik calmed him and said, “actually i am happy for you… go and speak to her…”
Dev went and sat beside Manu. He holded her hands. She looked at him. Dev said, “manu… I am sorry.. i know this is not the way of proposing you.. but trust me.. i will give you all the happiness in the world..” he wiped her tears and said, “i have fallen in love with you the moment i saw you in your first day.. i love you…” Manu just removed her hands from his hands and started leaving. Karthik said dev, “don’t worry… i will help you…” dev hugged him and said, “sorry Karthik… actually i thought there was something else b/w you both… I am so sorry…” Karthik holded his collar and asked, “what? How can you think like that? She is like my tanvi..” but he calmed and said, “ok leave.. anyways i will speak with lambu…” dev hugged and thanked him. Karthik left. He saw Manu crying. He tapped her and asked, “do you like dev?” To which Manu said that, “no Karthik.. I don’t have any such ideas.. how can i love someone?” Karthik said, “look lambu.. Dev is away from his parents.. he is living with his cousins.. so if you marry him, i am sure you will get a very good family.. but don’t just consider this fact.. if you like him, you can choose him and i am sure you won’t regret of choosing him..” manu said, “listen bittu… i have to share something with you..” karthik asked what.
Manu: have you heard about the little singer Ms.Yadav?
Karthik: yeah.. she is a great singer but she is mysterious.. unknown to the world.. she just sings songs and upload it in the internet.. even i am a big fan of hers.. but why do you ask about her?
Manu: i am Ms.Manisha Yadav..
Karthik was taken aback and asked, “are you Ms.Yadav? But why are you hiding from people? You have such a talent and someone might misuse your name..” manu said, “let them misuse.. i never mind.. but why i am saying this is because last year when I was doing my 10th standard, i received an appreciation letter from Chennai to my church address.. he praised my singing and we both started to share our likes and dislikes through letters. Slowly i started to develop a feelings towards him. His letters too said that he loved me.. but suddenly he stopped sending me letters.. there were no replies to my letters also..”
Karthik said, “oh there is also a love side in my lambu’s heart.. i respect that.. but you can’t trust these letters.. you can’t share your life with someone like this.. i prefer dev for you.. but i won’t force you.. take your own time.. now lets leave..”
Days pass by.. Karthik, Dev and Ashwin had completed their 12th standard. Rithu was still jealous of Karthik and Manu’s friendship. Dev was in love with Manu and they both started to spend some quality times together. Karthik, Ashwin and Dev had joined in the same college. Though Manu hanged out with her friends, she was still the school topper. And finally Manu, Rithu and Riya completed their schooling. As usual Manu was the topper of the school and was offered to study medicine. All were overwhelmed with this. Karthik’s dad decided to adopt Manu legally and to give her this news as her 18th bday gift.
2 days later Manu, Dev, Karthik, Rithu, Ashwin and Riya were celebrating her success. Manu did not know that it would be the biggest and worst turning point of her life. That day changed her life totally…
