Manan: Magic is in you (episode 19)

Hey guy…

Its dark and MaNan are in their respective rooms… Engrossed in thoughts… While their siblings and friends are busy teasing them… Navya, Mukti and Alya about the kiss and the fall and Abhi, Dhruv and Cabir about the fall coz they have already teased him a lot regarding the kiss…

Boy’s side

The three see him not responding and lost in his thought…

Dhruv (in a low whispering tone):He isn’t reacting!!

Cabir: I know that is irritating me… How can Manik not be hyper!!

Abhi: Man! He is changed!! And may be I know the reason!

Cabir: Nah… That’s not possible… He is Manik Malhotra… He cannot be affected by a girl!!

Dhruv: Dude!! Because of a girl, he broke into his mom’s cabin stealthily and copied the forms… He took such a big risk!!

Cabir: Bet?? If he falls for your sister I mean Nandini, then anything I say??

Abhi: Hey I was about to bet on that… Means we are expecting the same!!

Dhruv:Even me…

They three look at Manik who is busy in his own world…

Manik’s POV….

What was that!! That perfume, that feeling, that wish…. What was happening to me…. She said she was in the room when I entered there… I smelt sandalwood there… The same sandalwood which I smelt that day in Hogsmede Alley and at Wandatorium… Means she was there in the alley that day… Why she wanted to see the forms?? What was she searching for?? Are they same?? The girl I am looking for and Nandini..?? She attracts me so much and we are so similar yet so different… And that kiss!! I was trying to pull her all over me… Why?? I didn’t rejected her from kissing me instead I reciprocated!! Why she reminds me of that girl whom I am searching?? Are they one single person… ??And if it’s so then ( he gulps at the horror thought of his being stuck with Nandini all his life according to his promise made to Cabir and Mukti!!) But this cannot necessarily be true… It can it???

End of Manik’s POV…

Abh,Dhruv and Cabir call him out…

Abhi:Manik, what were you thinking so intensely…

Manik thinks to make up something which seems real: Abhi… I was thinking about the forms… It was there on Mom’s table… Navya saw it but she didn’t tell us anything… No scolding nothing?? How is that possible??

Cabir: We don’t even know how Mom got those forms… If I get those books,then I can tell how she got that… But now it’s impossible… It’s in Mom’s cabin and maybe it’s removed from there…

Dhruv: Yeah… It was made invisible coz she knew you guys were going there… I am wondering who caught Nandini’s copy of forms…

Manik: I don’t know… I don’t want to think about Nandini for sometime… I am going on terrace…

He gets up and goes from there…

Abhi turns to Cabir: Something happened to him??

Cabir shrugs his shoulder indicating don’t know…

Girl’s side…

Mukti, Alya and Navya are busy having their teasing session on… But now not on Nandini as she didn’t reacted to of their teasings…Mukti and Navya started teasing Alya…

Mukti: Alya , I heard that you and Dhruv didn’t kissed till now and it’s been six months…!!

Navya: yaaa..Mukti you know Dhruv bhai is very naive…soooo he might be trying to keep up his good boy image….

Alya turns around popping out her tongue childishly…

Alya: You know what… I tried once but Dhruv is so tubelight he thought that when I am coming close to him,I am asking him to guess my new perfume!

Mukti and Navya laughs out loud…

Mukti: He must have been pretending that… May be because of nervousness… You know boys act silly when they are nervous… Does he behave so always??

Alya shakes her head… Mukti shrugged her shoulder indicating ‘See I told you’… Alya realizes and smiles embarrassedly…

Navya: Dhruv bhai really gets nervous sometimes…I know him since childhood…

There Nandini is in her own world…

Nandini’s POV…

Whenever Manik comes close to me why does my heart beat starts increasing at a running horse speed? Why am I so affected by him? And wait… I just now called him with his proper name!! Unbelievable… This guy definitely does some planchette… Else how can me,Nandini Murthy change her way… That day in VP Malhotra’s cabin also,when I was invisible,he came close to me unknowingly and I was tempted… That day when he kissed me suddenly,I unintentionally reciprocated and then I kissed him back and he was like pulling me into him and I was also acting accordingly… Why did I kissed him as a revenge? I could have slapped him,kicked him or the worst cursed him but no..!! I kissed him!! Was it unintentional?? Today also when he held me in his arms,I felt good… I don’t know why but I did… Now I am even half hoping that my mind reader is Manik!! Aiyyappa!! What’s happening to me… As the day passes by,I get to know our similarities and feel more connected to him… Why?? Plz help me… You are my best buddy na… Plz… I need to distract my mind… Plz do something Aiyyappa!!

End of Nandini’s POV…

Her thoughts are broken by the thundering… She runs to window and looks at the sky happily!!

Nandini: Navu!! It’s about to rain!!! I am going on terrace… Meet you after the rains…

She runs from there to the terrace…

Alya: She gets attacks like this on regular intervals??

Navya nods… They three laugh out loud…

Mukti: Hey!! Come with me… It’s about to rain…!! I want to spend this first shower with Abhi…!!

Alya:And I with Dhruv…

Navya: But why should I go then?

Mukti: we cannot leave you here to get bored… You be with Cabir for sometimes… I swear I won’t take long…

Both pull her hand and runs with her… Navya has no other way than to agree…

There Manik is sitting on the terrace… He looks at the thundering… And it starts raining…

Manik: Arrrgghh!! What’s with the day!!!

He runs and goes beneath the shed on one corner of the terrace… He ruffles his fingers through his hair to sprinkle off the water… Just then he hears some steps and searches his wand which he realizes he left in his room… He curses himself then goes in dark so that the person can’t see him…

Nandini comes running there there on the terrace and goes to the railing… She lifts her face up and lets the rain drops fall on her… She smiles broadly feeling the cool sensation… Manik looks at her… He can’t help staring her constantly… He was literally drooling over her cute and innocent looks…

Nandini thinks something and takes out her wand and phone… She points the wand at her phone…

Nandini: Impervius…!!

Her phone becomes waterproof… Manik is stunned by her use of technology and magic… He smiles and mentally appreciates her… Nandini listens some voice from ground and looks down from the railing… She sees MukBhi in one corner drenching in rain holding hands… DhruLya looking into each other’s eye probably lost….And Cabir and Navya standing beside each other awkwardly in a shed watching the two couples… And some other students with their boyfriend/girlfriend enjoying the First Shower…

She starts singing….

Ta Ta Na Na Ta Na Na Ta Ta Na Na Ta Nan A

Yeh Pehli Baarish Ki Boondien

Kuch Kehna Chahti Hai Tumse

Sun Zara Hmm….

Jo Keh Nai Pai Mai Khudse

Yeh Do Dilon Ki Hai Baatein Sun Zara Hmmm…

Bheeg Jau Teri Main In Bahom Main Aise

Jaise Lipte Hue Do Dil Yahan Bheeg Jau Teri Main

In Bahon Main Aise Jaise Lipte Hue Do Dil Yahan

Mil Rahe Hai Jaise Aasm Aur Baaarish

Ho Rahi Puri Dil Ki Khwahhishein

Keh Bhi De Jo Hai Chipa Tere Dil Main

Waqtkar Rha Ab Meethi Sazishein

Khone Lage Jaise Din Ke Ujaale

Waise Hi Mai Gum Ho Gyi

Yeh Behki Behki Hawayein

Kuch Kehna Chahti Hai Tumse Sun Zara Hmmm…

Yeh Gunjte Hue Badal Jo Keh Rhe Hai Ye Mujhse Sun Zara Hmmm..

Pehli Bearish Ta Nan A Ta Ta Na Na

Pehli Baarish Ta Nan A Ta Ta Na Na Pehli Baarish

Manik was lost in her voice…he come out of his trance when she stops singing…

Nandini: It seems that Nandini has to do some social service… All I need is a speaker… But… Oh yaa I remember!! (She again points the wand at her phone) Sonorus..!!

This time she doesn’t removes the wand but keeps it by the side of the railing… And then looks down… Manik looks at her keenly… He thinks what she is upto… Suddenly music starts playing very loudly… All the couples, MukBhi ,DhruLya and CaVya  look up… Nandini gives them thumbs up and enjoys herself… Now Manik understands what she was doing… Now he has to admit that she is intelligent… A beauty with brains indeed!!

The song starts playing…

Cham cham cham

Zulfon se bandh liya dil
Seene pe se uddne laga anchal
Mujhse naina mila ke
Mausam hone lage pagal
Sabse hoke befikar
Naachu main aaj

Cham cham cham
Cham cham cham

Cham cham cham
Cham cham

Main naachu aaj
Cham cham cham

Cham cham cham

Cham cham cham
Cham cham

Rain drop bouncing
My heart is announcing

You got to take me away
Let’s start jumpin’ my

Nandini dances alone on the terrace doing the steps and flying her long silky hairs… She imitates holding a microphone and singing… She then imitates palying a guitar… Manik just looks hiding at her open mouthed… He could not help noticing that she wears no makeup at all… Her skin all smooth and milky white… She has a million dollar smile… He longed to go and join her in her dance… But he can’t… He is afraid that he may ruin her moment which she thinks she is enjoying just by herself…he just enjoys watching her dancing from the dark… Mukbhi and Dhrulya are also enjoying with other couples…

My heart goes pumpin’
I love you in every way
Dhadkanon pe boondein jo giri
To naachu aaj
Cham cham cham
Cham cham cham

Cham cham cham
Cham cham

Main naachu aaj
Cham cham cham

Cham cham cham
Cham cham cham

Cham cham
Main naachu aaj

Mukti and Abhi are drenching and dancing in one corner… She turns back when he makes his two fingers walk on her hand all the way up to her neck and tickles her… She gasps and holds his hand to stop him from doing so… She steps ahead to go but Abhi pulls her towards him and she lands on his chest… He lifts her chin up and they look into each other’s eyes… They both smile and nuzzle their noses…

Geeli hawayein jhoomti hain

Tan ko mere choomti hain
Chhod ke yeh sharam varam

Jhoome yeh jiya
Koyi bhi kahe kuchh bhi yahan

He turns her around and moves her hairs aside and brings it on the front from one side… He keeps his head on her shoulder on the other side and backhugs her… He kisses on her cheek… She blushes and smile…

Maine to kabhi suna kahan
Dil ne mere jo bhi kaha

Maine woh kiya

Haan is pal ko main aaj jee lun
Jo bhi hoga dekha jayega kal
Mujhse naina mila ke
Mausam hone lage pagal haye

Nandini’s hairs comes on her face as she takes a sharp turn… She removes it slowly all the while smiling and continues dancing… She spreads her arms and rotates like a cute little princess… Manik closes his fist tight and gulps hard… He is having hard time controlling his emotions…

Sabse hoke befikar

Naachu main aaj                                              Cham cham cham                                            Cham cham cham

Cham cham cham
Cham cham
Main naachu aaj
Cham cham cham
Cham cham cham
Cham cham cham

Cham cham

Cabir and Navya are standing awkwardly beside each other under a shed… Cabir goes two steps back and leans on a support folding his arms across his chest and looking at Navya lovingly… Navya when sees Cabir is not beside her,then she spreads her one arm out of the shed to let the rain drops fall over it… She smiles as she the rain touches her skin… Cabir admires her lovingly… He then goes to her and taps her shoulder… She quickly takes her hand back and looks at him… He forwards her hand and signs her asking her for a dance in rain… She badly wanted that so couldn’t deny and that too Cabir… She keeps her hand on his and they both go together to enjoy the first shower and dance… He rotates her holding her one hand and then pulls her towards him… They have a small eyelock….
Barishon ki taal pe yeh

Khanak mere dhadkanon ki
Keh rahi hai jee le tu zara
Baar baar sath mere
Saare ab thirakne lage
Dole zameen naache aasman
Main toh hawa hun hath na aaoon
Marzi se apni udti hi jaaun
Ho khud ki karu main kya tareefen
Raat ne churaya mera kajal
Mujhse naina mila ke
Mausam hone lage pagal
Sabse hoke befikar
Naachu main aaj
Cham cham cham
Cham cham cham
Cham cham cham
Cham cham
Main naachu aaj
Cham cham cham
Cham cham cham
Cham cham cham
Cham cham
Sab naachein aaj
Cham cham cham.

Cabir moves aside the hairs on Navya’s face which came a result of sudden pull… This breaks her trance of eyelock and she blushes… She rushes back to the shed… Cabir ruffles his fingers through his hairs and smiles and blushes… He follows her…
Mukbhi are lost in each other while dancing… His arms around her waist and her arms around his neck… They move slowly to the beat…and so does Dhrulya…
Nandini stands on her toe spreading her arms and feeling rain all over her body… While Manik stands there lost in her…
The song stops but Nandini stands like that only… Manik smiles seeing her… Suddenly he notices a green jet of light coming towards her from the other side… He gets shocked… Now he cannot be hidden here and see the worst happening with Nandini in front of his eyes… He rushes towards her calling her out…

Manik: Nandini!! Be careful…!!

Nandini looks at him shocked and stunned… He comes over her and they stumble and fall… As they fall,the green jet of light passes above them and hit the wall.. They get shocked seeing the fire there but it extinguishes as it’s raining… Nandini is all over Manik and he beneath her… They both look at each other… First time face to face and eye to eye…
Manik tries to read her mind but when he looks into her eyes,he can just see his image… How he is looking right now from Nandini’s view… Same with Nandini… They can’t read each other’s mind because they aren’t thinking anything about anybody… They are just lost in each other… Because they can read minds,so looking into each other’s eyes showed them what was going on in their mind… They both were just looking at each other forgetting the world… Manik notices Nandini’s locks falling over her face… He didn’t wanted to miss this chance now… He moves aside her locks while touching her face… Nandini closes her eyes as he touches her… He looks at her face and is not able to control his emotions… He moves his face closer to her but just then they hear some noise from the direction of the attack which brings them back to the real world… They stand up hurriedly and look in the direction… Manik picks up Nandini’s wand and runs in that direction hoping to catch the person whole Nandini stands back there trying to normalize her deep breathings…. Manik comes back and finds her breathing heavily while closing her eyes… He couldn’t help noticing how each and every rain drops slide down her long slender arms… He then jerks his thoughts and walks to her… He taps on her shoulder… She turns looking down…

Manik: Are you ok???

She nods :Did you found someone there??

Manik replies in no but then notices the shiver in her voice due to cold… He holds her hand… She looks at him surprised… He walks to the shed… She also follows him without arguing… He gives her wand to her and looks other side else he will loose his control totally seeing more of that drenched angel standing right beside him…

He ruffles his fingers through his hairs to sprinkle off the water and shakes his head… This time Manik looks at him… She notices him completely drenched and she had to admit that he was looking steamingly hot with those water droplets all over his revealing biceps… She wanted to hug him tight right now as he was really warm and the weather was really cool… But she has to control her emotions… To stop the devil overpowering her mind,she looked everywhere but Manik…

Her trance is broken when they hear three more shout….ABHI…ALYA…CABIRRR…

They rush down towards the garden…on confirming that all are fine…they decide to go to their respective rooms change and meet at Arete common room…
