Manan: Magic is in you (episode 5)

Hey guys…thanks a lot for encouraging me… and plz do tell me if u r getting confused and want me to write…the character sketch… enjoy reading….

At Murthy Mansion…

Navni and Dhrubhi are lying on Navni’s bed…

Dhrubhi are thinking about muklya and Navya is thinking about her new world where as Nandu is thinking about the morning incident…

Abhi turns and sees Nandu blankly staring at the ceiling…

Dhruv: Nandu !! (All looks at him) You generally believe in giving tensions… Then who is that you gave you tension…

Nandu: There is no tension bhai… Don’t think much… Your knees are already bent… It will pain more…

Dhruv hits Nandu with a pillow…

Nandu: Ouch!!

Dhruv: Now you are alright… Tell me come on..

Nandu: ohk…fine..I allowed someone to read my mind today…

All: WHAT!!!!!

Nandu: Oh shut your mouths plz… No one’s gonna give you guys that size rasgullas at this time…

Abhi closes her mouth :But you never allow anyone to do that… Dad and Amms has been trying that since long but they were never successful then howcome today???!!!

Nandu: I don’t know… I just felt like conversing with him forever… I didn’t wanted him to stop…. So i didn’t used​the barrier…

Dhruv: You both were communicating through telepathy!!

Nandu nods…

Navya (excited) :How was he like??

Nandu: I don’t know… He was on his broom wearing his helmet…  Even he did not see me… I was covering my fave with scarf… Only our eyes met… And—

Navya: You felt like being connected to him…!!! I know… It happens… He must be a hot chick!!

Nandu: Why are you so excited… Lemme remind you… he was covering his face and talking with me not wid u…

Navya:Of course for you idiot… I am sure you both will definitely meet again… Destiny has something for you both… And I am sure about that…

Nandu:If you say so… Even I want to know how he looks…

(There Manik is smirking looking at Cabir and muklya)

Nandu (suddenly) :bhai… Only few people can read minds right?

Dhrubhi nods…

Nandu: So does anyone know about them… I mean so that its easy to find them…

Abhi: I don’t know about others but the pure bloods are recorded in this case…

Nav: Their blood goes through purifier??

Dhruv: What!!?? No… Look I will tell you… In this world there are 4 types of people… Pure bloods,Half bloods and Muggle borns and squibs…

Nav: Mr.Dhruv Vedant… From the core of my heart I would request you to elaborate the blood thing you just blabbered…

Dhruv: Pure bloods are those witches and wizards who have their family history as magical… They are witches and wizards for at least 3 generations… Muggle borns to you know… Witches and wizards from ordinary parents… Half bloods are those witches and wizards who are born from a A pure blood parent and a muggle born parent…

Nandu:Like us…

Abhi nods :Papa is a pure blood whereas Maa… I mean Maa is muggle born… And Squibs are those who are children of witches and wizards but cannot do magic…

Nandu: Now I understood… Means there is a high chance of that guy being a Pure blood…

Abhi: May be…

Nav: And where is that record kept?? In the ministry??

Dhruv: No… Only one place… Hecate Witchcrafts and Wizarding College… In the main office… Even ministry doesn’t have those records…

Nandu: That’s interesting…

Abhi: Now let me sleep… I have to wake up early tomorrow…

Dhruv: even me as well..and I am staying here tonight…so let me sleep I have to wake up early..

Navni: And meet our bhabhi’s…

Dhrubhi :GOOD NIGHT NAVNI…

Navni (giggling) :Good Night bhai… (After 5 secs)BHAI!!!

Dhrubhi gets startled :What?? You both want to kill us by giving us cardiac arrest??

Nav: Sorry!! Tell na… How you and Alya bhabhi met?

Nandu: and u…how you and Mukti bhabhi met??

Dhrubhi: What!!!??

At Malhotra Mansion…

Manik is practicing summoning charm on the glass while preventing the water to fall down… cabir is just lying on the bed and thinking something…muklya are thinking about Dhrubhi respectively

Manik: Mukti … I am not getting sleep…

Muklya looks on in shock at him :About us we understand that we are in love so we are not getting sleep… But you?? You also fell for someone or what??

Manik: Nonsense…

Cabir: Thinking about someone..??

Manik :What!! No… I slept in afternoon… (In mind) But was not able to sleep… Her eyes were continuously disturbing me… Those mesmerizing eyes with a pinch of mischief in them… Don’t know how she looks…

(There nandu is smiling and her face is shining brightly…)

Alya: Yaa… Serves right… So what is the plan?? Adventure??

Manik: Naah… Share your love story’s… I want to know how you and he met…

Mukti: At this hour??

Manik: What’s wrong in that??

Cabir: yaa…even I want to know…how this lady bheem fell in love…

Alya: Alright…

At Murthy Mansion…

Abhi: You aren’t serious… Are you??

Navya: Your promise… I am damn serious…

Dhruv excitedly gets up and takes pillow on his lap :ok

(Guys now the story will go in parallely in Both the Mansions… mukbhi and dhulya are narrating their story to Navni and manbir…)

FB Starts…

A week after their session had started… Abhi was popular very soon because of his looks among the students and intelligence among the professors…
Where the boys were jealous of him, the girls used to fall for it…Dhruv was also popular..
Mukti  was already popular as she was the daughter of Professor Malhotra and VP Malhotra …
It was the day for the house division…

Amms comes up on the podium and swings her wand keeping it on her neck… Abhi smiles seeing the different usages of the wand… Right now as a microphone…

Amms: Good afternoon new comers… Welcome to the new session of Hecate… Today you all will be admitted to your individual houses which will decide which house are you going to represent for the interhouse competition…
For your every good work,you will be awarded with the house points and similarly for every offense will lead to loss of points… House points can be given to individual student by any faculty member whether teaching or non teaching… Points will be automatically tallied up there at the points board the moment it is added or subtracted… (She said while pointing up to the ceiling which had 4 huge test tubes each with different coloured liquid-Red, Yellow, Blue,Green… Right now at their lowest level as it’s the beginning of the session) The four liquids are the four house colours… Red For Arete House… Silver Sword is the house symbol… Arete is the Greek Goddess of Bravery… Yellow for Ponos… Golden plough is the house symbol… Ponos is Greek God of Hardwork… Blue for Athena… Silver crown is the house symbol… Athena is Greek Goddess of Wisdom And Green is for Daedalus…   Green Snake is the house symbol…Greek God of cunningness and ambition… Each house is known by it’s particular characteristic… And you will be admitted according to the chracteristic you posses… Now one by one I will be calling the names and Vice-Principal Malhotra’s Wand will decide your House…(She calls out) VP Malhotra… ”

Nyonika comes up to the podium…

Seeing her mother, Mukti stands like a boss in the crowd… Annapurna notices it and frowns…

Nyonika: Good Afternoon dear students… Before starting the house division,I would like to inform you that though you are going to be divided by the different house flags,but you all are always going to stay United under the Magestic Hecate Banner… And to remind few students,I know most of you are related to the trustees and professors of the college but the first relation you hold here with us is of the teachers and students… AM I CLEAR?? (All the students nod… Nyonika glares Mukti… she stands properly… Alya laughs seeing her… she elbows her…)
Good… Now we shall start the purpose we are here for… First one is Harshad Khurana….”

A bad*ss looking guy goes up the stage to Nyonika in full attitude… He is chewing the chewing gum and winks at Nyonika as he reaches stage… Nyonika glares him… He understands that it won’t work and apologizes… She gives a stiff nod… He turns and smiles looking at the crowd…

Nyonika: Remember… Your personality will decide your house… (He nods) Are you ready? (He again nods) ok… Oikos Revilio…

She does the wand action and points the wand at him… He closes his eyes as light comes from the wand…
Dhruvbhi looks on being amazed… they are looking at all this for the first time…

Mukti whispers :I had only heard that it’s fascinating… But it actually is…

Alya: You are right Mukti… This looks amazing…

Harshad opens his eyes and looks for the mark…

Nyonika: Check your arms and biceps…

He nods and hastily folds the sleeves of his shirt… A small but fierce Green Snake is tattooed on his biceps…

Harshad :This looks so cool…!!

Nyonika :This is your house batch now… You belong to Daedalus … You are full of ambition and have good leadership qualities…

Harshad smiles and leaves…

Nyonika: Dhruv Vedant…

Dhruv goes up on the stage…

Nyonika :Oikos Revilio

Dhruv looks at his forearm… A silver crown is tattooed on it…

Dhruv: s*xy!!

Nyonika: Athena… The house of wisdom…

Nyonika: Madhyam Singhania…

A strong,tall and muscular guy goes up to stage… Harshad wishes him luck… He smiles back…

Nyonika: Oikos Revilio

Madhyam checks his biceps and sees a green snake…

Madhyam:Buddies together bro!!

Harshad: Of course!!

Nyonika :Another Leadership quality we have found… Daedalus..

Nyonika: Abhimanyu Murthy …

Amms smiles… Abhi looks at her… Ansh and Mansi signs him all the best… Abhi smiles and goes up on stage and smiles…

Nyonika: Oikos Revilio..

The light falls on him and vanishes after 5 seconds..he checks his arms and biceps.. but finds nothing and looks at Nyonika..she come and turns him around and there is a small silver sword on his neck…

Nyonika:Arete… The house of Bravery…

Amms smiles proudly listening to it… So do Ansh and Mansi…

Nyonika: We have the first Arete Tenant here… (To Abhi) Congrats… Very few but the chosen ones are selected for this house…

Abhi gets happy and thanks her… he goes down the stage…

Nyonika: Varun Talwar…

A boy comes on the stage and smiles…Nyonika swings her wand..

Nyonika:Oikos Revilio…

He checks his hand a green snake is there..

Nyonika :Another Leadership quality we have found… Daedalus

He comes down…

Nyonika: Alya Saxena…

Raj and Siraj signs her all the best… Alya smiles and goes up on stage and smiles nervously…

Dhruv and Varun are awestruck seeing her… Dhruv is not even blinking…
Abhi sees him thus…

Abhi:Relax bro… She is in our batch only… Close your mouth else Mom and Neeta aunty will catch you red handed…

Dhruv composes himself…They both smile…

Varun wishes she is admitted in Daedalus …

Nyonika smiles seeing her nervous…

Nyonika: it’s ok… There is nothing to worry…

Alya nods smiling…

Nyonika:Oikos Revilio…

Alya closes her eyes tightly as the light emerges from the tip of her wand… It diminishes after 5 seconds…

Alya looks at her hands and sees a silver crown…Dhruv gets happy whereas varun is disappointed…

Nyonika:Athena… The house of wisdom…

Alya smiles and goes down…

Nyonika:Mukti Malhotra…

Mukti goes on the stage and this time Abhi is mesmerized seeing here and wishes…that she is in Arete…Dhruv sees Abhi lost…

Dhruv: Seems like someone is going to fall head over heels…

Abhi smiles :Even I think that…

Dhruv :I am talking about you…

Abhi :Even I am…

They both smile…

Nyonika:Today all will know what you hold…

Nyonika: Oikos Revilio…

Mukti closes her eyes tightly as the light emerges from the tip of her wand… It diminishes after 5 seconds…

Mukti looks at her hands but finds nothing… She looks towards Nyonika…
Nyonika goes to her and checks her arms,her forearms and upper palm but finds nothing…
She then turns her around and moves her hairs bringing it to front… All look at the little silver sword tattooed on her neck…

Nyonika:Well… I don’t know how… But it’s Arete the house of Bravery… (To Mukti) I hope that it’s not engraved manually…

Mukti:Mom!!!

After all the new comers are admitted to their respective houses, Amms once again adresses them…

Amms:Students… So the house division is done and hence from now on you will be living in your house hostels… Your prefects will guide you to your hostels and you need to listen to them and abide by the rules and regulations of your respective houses… Just remember any indiscipline on your part will make your house loose points… The point tally will start from tomorrow’s sunrise… Do as much fun as you want coz you have just one night… You may disperse now…

Abhi is sad that he and Dhruv are in different house… Dhruv is sad as he won’t be able to have the fun of seeing the Mukbhi drama in Arete house hostle… They sadly bid bye to each other for the night and follow their prefects…

Same is with Muklya…

At the Arete common room…

Mukti was roaming here and there looking at the moving paintings and their funny antiques… She laughed listening to their funny conversations while Abhi was following her all the while like a puppy…

Mukti suddenly turns and gets surprised seeing him just behind her…

Mukti:You want to say something?

Abhi :Do you read minds?

Mukti:huh?? No… Why?

Abhi :Then how do you know?

Mukti :May be because that’s why you are following me from that time…

Abhi(he smiles sheepishly and rubs his nape) :Ok… I am sorry for behaving like a creep…

Mukti smiles :It’s ok…

Mukti :I am Mukti Malhotra …”
She forwards her hand…

Abhi :I know… I heard it when VP Malhotra called you out and was scolding you…

Mukti feels embarrassed…:I am glad you remembered it… And don’t worry about Mom… I love to irritate her… She is very cute… Just like you…

Abhi blushes… Mukti realizes what she said just now and apologizes…

Abhi :You are her daughter? You hardly show off…

Mukti:What will I do showing off… I know that it’s of no use… She treats me as other students only when we are inside Hecate … BTW you are a muggle right…

Abhi :Nope… Till now believed that I was one… I am a half blood…

Mukti :Great… Mom side or Dad side…??

Abhi:Mom is a muggle born…

Mukti :Your father is a pure blood? We must be knowing him then… What’s his name?

Abhi:Ansh Murthy …

Mukti :You mean to say Professor Murthy!! The Charms Professor!!

Abhi nods…

Mukti :That means you are Grand Daughter of Principal Vanshika Murthy!!”

Abhi :Isn’t she my father’s mother??

Mukti :Oh… Yaa… Sorry… You have higher approach than me here…

Abhi: No… I don’t want to show off my surname…even u don’t rgt????

Mukti:yaa…because I want to make my name shine… I don’t want people to think that I am here on the basis of nepotism but I want them to see me proving my merit and worth… I deserve to be a Hecatian…

Abhi :Your superb self confidence just now gave me another reason to like you apart from your cute looks and lovely voice….

Mukti realizes what he spoke and again blushes :You like me?

All the paintings and portaits at once stop talking and start listening to Mukbhi convo… Mukti blushes feeling their gaze on her… Abhi feels awkward…

Abhi :Yes… (He then realizes what he said and hastily says) no…

Mukti: No…??

Abhi:No… Yes… I mean… Ok fine… Can we be friends??

Mukti: Are you going to be satisfied with that relationship?

Abhi :Well of course not… I will implement the the later part soon to go to the next phase…

Mukti:From when?

Abhi:May be tomorrow…

Mukti:Aren’t you going very fast…

Abhi :I love adventures… And it is one of a kind…

Mukti:May I know how you are going to take next step?

Abhi :By asking you for a movie tomorrow at nine… You know like ordinary muggles…

Mukti :Well not a bad idea… But what if I say no..?

Abhi:Well my 6th Sense says you won’t… And even if you say so to prove me wrong… I know how to turn that into yes…

Mukti: We will see… Good night Abhi…

She turns to go… Abhi calls her out…

Abhi: Mukti… My answer??

Mukti: Well… Let’s see what surprise tomorrow holds for you…

Abhi :The thing we already know are not called as surprises…

Mukti: You are too confident Mr. Abhimanyu…

Abhi: May be because I trust you Ms. Mukti…

Mukti smiles broadly :Good Night abhi…

Abhi rubs his nape smiling: Good Night Mukti… Will be waiting for your answer tomorrow…

She disperses to her room and smiles broadly…

Abhi sees her going till she vanishes from his sight… He smiles rubbing his nape and thinks Dhruv needs to know this development…

He also runs back to his room..
