Yrs Passed by, Geet went on improving in her studies. All teachers recognized her as Brilliant student of school and teachers expectations from her increased.
She was recomended to participate in all the educational competitions and whatever fees was needed for those competitions Maan would bear them happily.
She actually was not needing Maan’s tution but his guidline as mentor was working as added advantage in her education. Principal has stopped their tution session as it was no more needed but still Maan visited her once in a week as Mentor.
But it would so happen that sometimes Maan would just love to loose himself in her talks, he loved pampering her and Geet would just forget who she is with him. She would just put her complains, her fear, her worries, her anger on him and he would take them all in. But along with this, Geet’s respect for him just went on increasing.
And unknown to Geet’s conscience she had started admiring her Chote Thakur in other ways too but she would never accept. It was a sin she knew by now, that way of looking at chote Thakur, that way for heart beat rate at his mere touch sometimes was all sin for her. And she would then 100 times pray to her Babaji to undo those sins from her.
But it was not all in her control, just like an unknown bond had pulled him towards her, she was also being pulled into that bond… woo anjana sa Bandhan, kheechta chala jaa raha tha use.
Sometimes when Maan would keep talking to her, she could just not remove her eyes from him,admiring him, this was all beyond her will. She was growing up to be a young girl and her falling for her Chote Thakur was inevitable.
While in Studies:
The way Geet has improved with Maan, all teachers and principal just respected their relation.
4yrs passed, geet has just topped her 10th pre-board and was extensively preparing for her board while in 4 yrs Maan’s “Geetanjali” was one of the most leading company of the country. And due to its positive growth and expansions its share rate were just raising everyday compared to others. But Maan made sure to keep himself away from Media. He did not want Geet to know he was becoming on of the India’s most leading induatrialist. She would become conscious.
Maan since then has been staying in KM with family but he preferred to keep his business separate.
“We will definitely merge dad but on correct time.” Is all he would say. Offcourse his dad and family wanted to merge Geetanjali with Khurana group, two top companies merging in one, no one could beat them.
In all these yrs how many documents Maan got signed from Geet, she had no idea. He would ask her to do anything and she would blindly sign it not even trying to know what he was getting signed. For Geet, it was her Chote Thakur’s order or wish, she would abide.
For her, his words and wish were always above her. Even education, now she was fairing so well and loving the studies and books but when she had started she did only for Maan. Even today, she tried to get her best result coz that would bring such prideful smile on her Chote Thakur’s face.
She in her own way has dedicated her life o him… his ambitions for her were her ambitions.
When on one side Maan, 25yrs old, successful businessman, knew what he wanted in his business, he also was sure what his heart wanted, he was sure of his feelings for Geet, Geet was growing, she was 17+ now almost going to be 18 and he had seen her grow up in one of the most beautiful young girl…
She was elder in her class but seeing her background and how well she has picked up, nobody could look down at her.
Now, whenever Maan would admire her, he would admire her with many different feelings.
Maan would casually bring her closer, hug her or pat her as Guardien or mentor but sometimes when his hand would get up to feel her with different urge, he would control himself by tightening his fist. No, he will never take advantage of her respect towards him, only after he confess his feelings to her, only when he explains her what was MANZIL of their relation or only when she will accept this relation too, he would touch her that way. Maan wanted Geet to first complete her 10th and by then she will be 18 too.
He was waiting for her to turn 18, no one can then force her to their will. She can take her own decision and when legally no one can touch her without her will, Maan was ready to openly fight with society with any odds. He knew he had too, he knew his society around and her society too.
One big reason for Maan to keep hiding their friendship was her being minor.
But now Geet was also in age where she understood something. Everyday and night she would feel guilty and ashamed of the new feeling. This was complete sin for her. All she knew was, Chote Thakur used to come close to her as friend or as concern for her but even those touches of him would make her blood rush up and down with sensation. How can she even think of feeling that way for Chote Thakur. She never wanted to do this Sin but her heart and her body mostly reacted against her strong will and unwantedly she was commiting this sin every day. For her, Maan held very very high place where she can only look up and see him.
“Ohh god, Now Chote Thakur is big enough for marriage… so many allience must be coming for him. Babaji, please help chote Thakur to select one soon. Phir sab theek ho jayega. Mujhe aisa paap wale khayal se bachalo babaji…”
And similar to Geet’s prey, Maan’s mother, Dadima and all ladies were praeying to get a wonderfull Daughter in Law. She would be the eldest bahu of next generation, she has to special in all ways and thus the search was on… but even very beautiful and royals girls were being rejected coz of some or the other thing. Maan had some hint of such things going on but he was also happy of their high expectations as that will let him bargain time till he confess his feelings to his Geetu.
It was last day of Geet’s 10th board exam. Maan was waiting outside, leaving his important meeting. She is completeing a milestone in her life of which none would have imagined. So he was going to make her celebrate it. A smile formed on his face, she never accept anything like party and all, even when he was waiting with all his hard earned money for her to spend. So Maan has to make her do it his way.
Maan being a business Tycoon, owned numbers of luxurious and sports car, he was fond of them. But to keep his profile low in front of her, he always came to her on his bike, which was classy in its own way but still bike would keep her nerves calm.
Geet directly came running out while Maan was on his bike behind the tree. He was observing her restlessness to find him. This was common act of him these days. He knew she will never express her feelings towards him, he knew she thought too high of him so this was his way of finding how she felt towards him.
Geet’s heart felt a pinch by not finding him but soon she chided herself
“Geet bas ker, jitna kerte hain tere liye, tu jyada he chatee hai.. Job hai unka, family hai.. sab chorker yahan aana muskil nahi hai kya?? “
But her heart was getting dipped down “waise bhi, today, Maa is here in mansion and I have to go there. Some important people are coming and I need to help in household.”
However , great in education Geet was, however hard Maan was trying to change her life… Geet’s status was imprint on her heart. She knew very well where she actually belongs and where she has to go ultimately.
Geet was lost in her thought, trying to strengthen her mind when someone tapped on her shoulder. She looked up to see her most favorite face. “Chote Thakur app aayen hain” and she hugged him tight, Maan controlled his beating heart beats.
“And what made you think I will not come”
“Nahi woo ghar per” Maan was confused “Ghar per, what“
“who log aa rahe hain na, aapke liye” “Geet will you be clear” “ok, leave it. How was your exams… accha he hoga, brilliant you” he said with pride
“Chalo, today you deserve a party for this milestone” Geet looked at him shocked “Abhi? “
“haan, come sit on bike” “Nahi, wooh Chto Thakur,All servants are called on work today in Mansion, Maa is also coming and I have been called for help too“
Maan was shocked, he knew nothing “What? Aur haan, tum abb koi kaam nahi karoogee, kahin bhi, Samjhi“
“Chote Thakur, Ghar ka kaam hai, isme kya… will somebody from outside come? And I want to see her, she is very beautifull I have heard“
“Will you talk clearly” “AApke liye koi rajkumari dhudhee hain sabne“
Maan was soo irritated and shocked… most with the news she was giving him. He knew family had kept it hidden from him.
“Chup Chap bike pe baithoo, hum bahar jaa rahe hain celebrate kerne.. and no more words“
Geet was all confused. She could not say no to him, his words were most important for her but then what was happening she wanted it to happen so badly, it would get her rid of her own sinful thoughts.
She started steping on the bike, slowly saying “Maa ko bohut daant lagegi main nahi gayee tou“
He stopped and kept looking at her. She was thinking of her mother who threw her in Child labour, about mother who slapped her but then he knew her mother saved her from her father’s wrath, she was a mother after all.
“Aur unhe bhi dekhna hai mujhe” Geet said in ever so low voice when Maan just kept looking at her
Maan got so irritated at her stupid talk “So you seem very excited for my marriage… Chalo aaj tumhara shauk pura ker hee doon main” By then he got call from his mother asking him to come home immediately. They were hiding but he now knew the truth going on there.
Maan was so irritated taking her his home for work… she will have to work with all servants, he hated that but who will explain this girl. And on top of it, it was due to her he had to go and meet the girl, his family has finalized. He would have made excuse but he needed to give the taste of sour medicine to Geet or else she won’t understand.
Maan was still trying to calm his anger by thinking of her 18th B’day in just 2 days and how he will celebrate it. She had never let him celebrate it, she felt she don’t deserve those things but this time he was not listening. While he was lost in her world, Geet came up with most weird question
“Chote Thakur” “hmm” “Have you seen her pic“
There was no limit to Maan’s irritation. He turned to her in attitude
“I have not seen yet but today she is coming, so I will see her very well. Don’t worry tum khud dekhogee“
