Manan: Magic is in you (episode 31)

Hey guys….plzz do comment and also my other ff’s Manan:true love never ends and also SWASAN AND MANAN I LOVE U…

Its Dusk and Abhi and Cabir were near the Forbidden Forest at lake side preparing for Cabir and Navya’s date… All the setup was done with a small platform just enough so that the two of them could dance around when needed… In the centre lay a small table and two chairs… The whole setup was in white colour, Navya’s favourite,the pillars of the platform were decorated with white orchids and roses… The roof had numerous white and transparent balloons stuck to it with white ribbons hanging down and two violins were hanging in the mid air to act as musicians just on a flick of the wand…

Cabir :Ah!! Now it’s perfect… The colour,the stage,the flowers,the clothes everything… Right Abhi??

Cabir says while checking out himself…

Abhi :No bro… The table!!

Cabir looks at the table… It looked empty…

Abhi signs him to wait…
He flicks his wand and a glass pensive appears in his hand… He goes and fills it with the lake water and puts few small water lilies in it… He keeps it on the middle of the table and look Cabir…

Cabir: Wow!! Now absolutely perfect… (Abhi nods)

Abhi:but there’s still time for Navya to come… We have to wait a little more…

Cabir :I have an idea… (Abhi looks at him… He picks up a water lily from the pensive..) let’s find out what all this water lily has seen till now…

Abhi frowns :Really?? How come these types of ideas walks into your brain?? You want to use this power for your prank??

Cabir :Come on bro… We do the pranks together… Just think… This flower may have witnessed something of our use… We can use it to irritate others… It will be fun… Come on yaar… Please na…

Abhi: You are never going to change…!! But I hope this is gonna be fun!!!

Cabir holds the flower properly in his hands and looks at it concentrating on it… He gets visions… It’s blur… Slowly it gets clear… His eyes widens in shock as he watches everything as a film…
Abhi studies his expression and gets worried… Cabir lifts his head and looks at Abhi in shock…

Abhi :What is that I am missing???

Cabir :Manik proposed Nandini!!!!!

Abhi:Oh!! So what?? Old news!!

Cabir looks at him in disbelief… Abhi also realizes that he got a bait to catch MaNan..!!

Cabir and Abhi together :WHAT!!!!

Abhi :What did you just say!!! Here!! How??

Cabir :First answer me!! You knew it from before and hid it from me!!! You knew that Manik and Nandini are in relationship!!

A voice :Oh My God!! You got to know it!!

They both turn and look at Mukti who stands there with her gaping mouth covered with her hands… Beside her Navya was standing all ready for her date looking at Mukti in shock!!
Cabir looks at Navya mesmerized as he mouths her stunning but her mind is somewhere else…

Navya :And no one told me anything!! Not even Nandu!!!

Cabir :So you also knew it!! You both hid it from me!!! I am miffed!!

Navya :Me as well!!!!!

MukBhi :But we got to know it today itself… And we were about to tell you tomorrow coz today it was your date!!

Cabir and Navya normalize their expressions…

Cabir :Alright… Accepted!! But I am not going to forgive those two for hiding it…

Navya :Me neither!! She is my twini and hid it from me!! How come I couldn’t notice their proximity during classes!! I was with them all those times!!

Mukti :They didn’t even told us!! We are their siblings… This time Nandini and Manik are going to have a real tough time !!

Abhi :But Cabir tell us!! What you saw in that flower?? You said Manik proposed Nandini… That means he did it here! I want the details!!!

Navya:First you both tell how you found out??

Mukbhi narrates everything to both of them… They both are amazed listening to it…

After that Cabir tells how Manik proposed Nandini and what all he did from the flower’s point of view upto they sat on his broom and went up…

Abhi :After that???

Cabir :Of course that which every intelligent couples do except for you both who took a whole six months to do that!!!

Mukbhi turn red… Navya glares Cabir and smiles embarrassedly…

Navya :And Nandu told me that the ring was actually the crown!!

Mukti :She said the same to me!!

Abhi :Now I know where they used to be and what they used to do!

Cabir :And why these days he was extra cautious with me… He never let me touch him you know!!

Mukti :Ok… Now that we know how it happened… I have a plan… But will tell you all later as now it’s your time…

Abhi goes to Mukti ,Holds Navya’s hand and makes her stand beside Cabir and himself goes beside Mukti putting his arm around her…

Abhi :Exactly… Now you be with your girlfriend and I will be with mine… And don’t forget to clear it all before leaving…

Cabir and Navya giggle and nod… Mukbhi go from there…

Cabir forwards his hand,Navya willingly holds it… He takes her to the alter specially set up there for their date…
He makes her sit and flicks his wand… The violins start playing…

Navya :Not bad…

Cabir :More is yet to come…

Navya :I am waiting…

They both smile at each other…

Nandini and Soha follow Mansi and Nyonika to the Forbidden Forest…

Mansi :Now both of you… We are searching here for scarab beetles so that it can be dried, coarsely ground and used for potions… Be careful and attentive while finding them coz they are really witty insects and can hide very well…

Nyonika :The reason why they are used in the Wit Sharpening Potion… The one who collects more number of beetles will get 15 points for their house… So girls,be ready… Now choose with whom you want to go..

Soha and Nandini look at each other…

Soha (in mind) :VP Malhotra is strict… And she doesn’t likes me… And moreover I can’t let this girl to be with her mother… What if Professor Murthy’s motherly emotions awakens seeing her daughter working!! I will have to do all the work! No… I won’t let this happen…

Nandini frowns as she reads what Soha thought…

Nandini :Really… You are so pathetic!! VP Malhotra,I will go with you… Coz Ms. Soha Khurana is again insecure that what if Professor Murthy suddenly transforms as Mom and stops me from completing the detention… Then she has to work alone!!

Both the Professors look at Soha… Soha is beyond shocked hearing Ragini as she was cent percent correct… She was indeed thinking that…

Nyonika :It’s useless to make Ms. Khurana understand anything… Anyways… Come Ms. Murthy,we will go towards the south-east…

Nandini nods… She raises up her wand :Point Me..!!

Her wand acts as compass… Nyonika smiles at her intelligence and raises her wand as well :Lumos Maxima..!!!

They both go in their direction as the tip of her wand throws out a fire acting as torch for them…

Mansi :For once,try to obey me… This is neither your house hostle nor the college campus where you can roam around freely… This is Forbidden Forest and one literally needs to do nothing to get into trouble here… Am I clear??

Soha gulps and nods… She also raises her wand…

Soha :Lumos Maxima..!!

There is light around them… Mansi makes her wand as compass and they both go in East to search…

Cabir and Navya had Lasagna and tiramisu as food…

Navya :I don’t believe this!! How could you arrange Italian at such place??

Cabir :Well,you see sweetheart,I know how much you love Italian… So I had to arrange it for our first date anyhow…

He smiles as he wipes the cheese on the side of her lips…

Navya :Cabir (he looks at her) I have tasted your handmade Italian food… And you know what? Today’s taste was nothing in front of that one which you got specially for me..

Cabir smiles sheepishly as Navya caught him… She looks at him lovingly… She gets up and goes to him… Sits on his lap and wraps her arms around his neck… He hugs her back…

Navya :I love you Cabir…

Cabir :You can’t imagine how desperate I was to hear this from you!! I love you too…

He buries his face in the crook of her neck inhaling her smell…
The violin changes it’s tune… They hold their hands…

Sapna jahan dastak na de
Chaukhat thi woh aankhein meri
Baaton se thi tadaad mein
Khamoshiyan zyaada meri
Jabse pade tere kadam
Chalne lagi duniya meri

Cabir :You know what…a place for a loved one was always empty in my heart… I have a perfect family… Mom, Dad, Mukti and Manik as best brother and sister just one place was empty… And you filled it the moment you entered my life… (Navya’s eyes well up… She looks at him lovingly) Now I feel complete…

Navya wipes her tears and hugs him… He hugs her back…

Mere dil mein jagah Khuda ki khaali thi
Dekha wahan pe aaj tera chehra hai
Main bhatakta huaa sa ek baadal hoon
Jo tere aasmaan pe aake thehra hai

He breaks their hug and makes her stand… He also stands… He flicks his wand and the table and chairs disappear… She looks at him… He forwards his hand and she willingly takes it… He slides his hands to her waist pulling her close to him while her arms are wrapped around his neck… They both merge their foreheads and dance lovingly with each other…

Tu rooh hai toh main kaaya banu
Taa-umr main tera saaya banu
Keh de toh ban jaaun bairaag main
Kehde toh main teri maaya banu
Tu saaz hai, main ragini
Tu raat hai, main chandni

Navya looks at him,her arms still acting as his garland… She looks into his eyes which reflects immense love for her… It makes her overwhelmed…

Navya :I know it’s strange but I was five when I lost my Achachhan I mean my dadu… he was very close to me of all three of us…cause I was the first girl child and Nandu was 3 mins smaller than me… accha was trying to save Nandu and the witch and wizard gave him the torture curse…I was their he again tried to save me and got death curse…again my nanny who tried to attack me…she was also killed…I always loose the ones whom I love… I am the one who is curs—

Mere dil mein jagah Khuda ki khali thi
Dekha wahan pe aaj tera chehra hai
Main bhatakta huaa sa ek baadal hoon
Jo tere aasmaan pe aake thehra hai

Navya is unable to complete her words… Cabir seals her lips with his… She became really emotional while recalling her childhood… She needed support and Cabir gave her that… She also reciprocates to his kiss… Their soft kiss turns into a passionate one and they only part when they felt the need to breath…

Cabir  cups her face :You are made for me… You are my girl!! And my girl can never be cursed… Don’t you dare say that again… I promise you… No matter whatever happens… I will never leave you and will always stand by your side in every situation… Not just as your supporter but also your protector… I will always come back to you…

Navya nods and hugs him :I will never let you go away from me like Acchan and Nanna!! I will pull you back to myself if you dare to go away..!!

He hugs her back chuckling at her possessiveness…

Hum pe sitaaron ka ehsaan ho
Poora, adhoora har armaan ho
Ek dusre se jo baandhe humein
Baahon mein nanhi si ik jaan ho
Aabaad ho chota sa ghar
Lag na sake kisi ke nazar

Navya and Cabir continue dancing while talking…

Navya :Cabir… I really want to know what happened with my Acchan… Why they wanted to take away Nandu and me?? What we did that Nanna had to loose her life..??

Cabir : (Navya  puts her head on his chest… He tightens his grip around her) The moment I saw you,I felt my heart skipping a beat… This two months which I spent with you,I thought them to be the best days of my life coz I fell for you during that time… But I was wrong (she suddenly looks up at him… He cups her face lovingly) I was wrong because every moment spent with you is the best… They cannot be compared with one another… They are priceless… You are priceless… My priceless possession…!!

Navya :Me too Cabir!! I also fell in love with you at that time… Though I didn’t wanted to for I feared that I will loose you also which I never wanted… But you,your charm,your selfless nature… They made me yours forever with my heart and soul!!

They both smile…

Mere dil mein jagah Khuda ki khaali thi
Dekha wahan pe aaj tera chehra hai
Main bhatakta huaa sa ek badal hoon
Jo tere aasmaan pe aake thehra hai

He swirls her around holding her one arm and again pulls her to him… She dashes onto his chest… He merges his forehead with hers…

Cabir :After we will solve your mystery,I will talk to Mom… Though she knows about us but formally… We will live together and forever… Such that no one can separate us… And even if anyone will try,I know,we will fail them together…

Navya smiles as she nods… They both stop dancing… Cabir looks at her… She blushes under his gaze… He lifts her face by his chin… She tip toes as he leans in towards her lips… They both kiss passionately making a stamp and giving formal acceptance to the promise they just made to each other… They stand there after they part for breath embracing each other while the violins continue to produce a melodious music…

********************

Here Nyonika and Nandini are searching for the beetles… They are walking on toes so that they do not alert the beetles… Suddenly Nandini feels someone holding her waist…
She turns but sees Nyonika almost two feets away from her…
Nandini prepares her fist to hit the invisible person when she hears a whisper…

“Calm down my baby doll!! It’s me!! All were busy with their girlfriends and I am so habitual to you from past one month that I couldn’t stay away from you…”

Nandini widens her eyes… She looks at Nyonika tensedly then at the direction of the voice…

Nandini (whispering) :Manik!!! What are you doing here??? What if you are caught! What if we are caught!! And what was the need of coming to Forest alone!!! This is Forbidden Forest!! It’s troublesome!!

Manik :By God I will kiss you again to shut you then you only think what will Mom think seeing you in that position coz I won’t be visible!!! I just now told you why I am here..!! BTW,why you chose Mom!! You should have sent Soha with her… You know your Mom isn’t partial!!

Nandini (her mouth forming an o shape) :How do you know it!!?? You were with me since beginning and I couldn’t find you!! And BTW, you don’t know my Mom! In order to teach me discipline, she will make me search beetles as well as ginger route for the Wit Sharpening Potion!! The other one being special punishment from her side coz she is my Mom!!

Manik suppresses his chuckle :BTW,I am impressed my baby doll,you are really improving in potions… After all most of the time you be with me…

Nandini :I will hit you Manik!!

Manik :You can’t as you can’t see me!!

He kisses her cheek and moves aside on time as Nandini moves her fist swiftly to hit him but misses Manik …

Nyonika :Nandini?? What happened?? Why are you moving your fist as of hitting someone??

Nandini :Nothing VP Malhotra,it’s just some honey bee howering around me (Manik looks at her narrowing his eyes… Nandini feels it and smirks)… You know na,I am not less than a flower… So I was just moving away that insect…

Manik feels his jaw getting dropped… She just called him an insect!! This girl!! She really hit him hard without really touching him…

Nyonika smiles :You are a unique piece!! If I would have another daughter after Mukti,I would want her to be like you (Nandini smiles,so does Manik…) But on the other side, I pity that guy who will fall for you, he is really going to have tough time handling you and your different personality shades….

Nandini giggles while Manik vigorously nods while pouting and wiping his invisible tears… He again whispers in Nandini’s ears…

Manik :My innocent mother doesn’t know that the one she is pitying, he is her own younger son..!! Oh Mom!! I wish she doesn’t gets a shock learning this…

Nandini (chuckling soflty) :Ssshhh..!!! Let me do my work…. And plz be by my side and let me also know while you are doing that….

Manik comes closer to her and holds her waist protectively with his hand… She smiles and they walk ahead searching for beetles…

*************
*************

Cabir and Navya are still embracing each other… Two silhouetted shadows with their faces covered, looks at them from far from behind a tree…

Sujata :Ram, look… Our child..!! Our child has grown up in these 17 years!! I was dying to get a look of our child,but the circumstances!! I will just go,get a hug and come back!!

Ramprasad (stopping Sujata) :Sujata no… Stop!! Look there!!! Our child is not alone and moreover already embracing someone..!! I know it’s tough but you have to control your motherly emotions..!! Did you forgot?? We are dead in our child’s eye and for the world as well… We have waited a lot… We have faced a lot!! After lots of struggle,we are near our mission!! Today,we climbed one more step and entered Hecate!! Again!! After 17 years!! It was an exile for us!! Now it will end we will seek justice!! For us… For Jaan Di… For our child… Just a little more patience Sujata and after that,we will be United with our child and then no one will be able to separate us..!!

Sujata nods but she stumbles being emotional and steps on some dried fallen branches… It makes a sound…
Cabir and Navya at once part and looks in the direction…
Ram and Sujata hide in the nick of time but escaping Navya’s special eyes is impossible…

Navya :Cabir!!! There’s someone!! Someone is hiding… I think we should go there…

Cabir nods and they both run in the direction… It’s dark as it’s evening but Navya sees two shadows running away with full speed and then apparating at some distance…

Cabir :We missed them!! Damn it!!

Navya :Who were they?? Were they looking at us?? Coz I saw them hiding the moment I saw them!! Cabir,lets go to the tree,we might find something!!

Cabir nods and they both go there… Cabir finds a parchment paper there…
He picks it up… Navya looks at it…

Navya :Cabir!! Use your power!! See what it saw a few times back…

Cabir :Good idea… Wait!!

Cabir looks at the paper and concentrates… He gets his visions…

Navya :What happened??

Cabir :I couldn’t see the faces,but there were three people… Their faces were covered with hoods and masks… Only eyes were visible!! And they were studying it very carefully… As if finding something!!

Navya :Cabir,do you remember,the attack on Nandu at the alley was also done by a silhouetted hooded person!! I am afraid that what if they have entered here!! It means Nandu is in danger!!! We need to tell this to our friends!!!!

Cabir :I know Navya!! You are right… But before that,we have to know what’s in this paper!! What if it’s important and acts as a clue??

Navya takes the paper and opens it… It’s blank… She looks at Cabir…
Cabir takes out his wand and points at it…

Cabir :Revelio…!!!

And the contents of the paper start revealing itself!!! Navya and Cabir looks on shocked at the paper and then at each other…

Cabir and Navya together, looking at each other in shock :THE MAP OF HECATE!!!
