He didn’t want to close the door on her face that too when he heard his name from her like that but then he forced his attention towards the impending call which was buzzing to be picked up. Family will have to wait for his attention as right now this call was his priority.
Clients were right in front of him and without delay he started giving presentation. It was done by his subordinate Geet which he had reviewed and finalized. Over a period of time she had emerged as a shining star but yes she still tested his patience as always she would be on call and he will have to scream at her only then would listen to him.
Back to presentation, an hour passed by but there was still many details present in it to highlight. As the discussion started everyone was sure that what would be the conclusion. There was not a stone left unturn by Keerthi Designs that the clients could object and the deal had to be finalized in their favour.
Next issue came when the deal was to be signed but who was in the possession of those papers was not known to anyone as everyone was clueless about it.
That could have been postponed but then the clients were already to fly back to their place directly from KC. And one of the condition on which clients were okay with conference call was if the deal is cracked the papers had to be signed and first signatures would be from KC end so that they could carry a copy with them immediately.
Nevertheless when things were to happen they will that too without letting any obstacles to create its effects. Exactly the same way the file was brought out by Geet and she presented the file on which MSK had signed infront of the client and the deal was sealed off.
Once the deal was seized MSK was off the call and all the employees at the office let a sigh so that they can celebrate the deal without any boss banging on their head with work. Boss are meant to make you work till you fall and report them till you live.
Sasha came out of the conference room along with the Geet saying “Geet, you just saved the day for us. Did you watch boss face when you got that file. His face was beaming with happiness.”
“No need to thank me maam. It was even my hard-earned sweat” replied Geet.
“Yes, it was all yours. Now you carry on I will manage the rest.” Sasha said. “First I need to check with boss about the next plan as the impending trip should not be cancelled.
“Okay, just let me know what is decided and if you need me just give me a call.” Geet said.
“Geet, why don’t you join us for the trip. It would be really enjoyable experience. We get this opportunity only once in a year.” Sasha said grinning but Geet looked bit confused so Sasha continued “To rob the boss, he is paying for the trip.”
“Oh…but I will enjoy with my family…” Geet said having a bigger grim plastered on her face.
“This is also similar to family trip. We all are going with family. Ask your prem to come along with you. Even we all want to meet him.” Sasha said.
“Sorry Sasha… but my sister Rajni is coming too. She has holidays so if I miss this time then it will happen only next year. That would be too long.” Geet said.
Both would have continued for long had there not been a call on Geet’s phone and both went off to their respective work.
Here back in Khurana’s house Maan was very excited but then he had many other preparations to complete. His team was waiting for his orders before they all immerse themselves in party he had to add-on to their responsibilities for next stage. In front of his work he even forgot that it had been 3 hours from the time he closed the door on the face of his wife. What she had to face and what were her worries when she was not even heard by her own husband.
Just moments after Maan shut the door; Disha came and took her “Hamsa Babhi, where are you… Help me in selecting the dress for the evening.”
With the talks going on in the room finally it was decided that everyone would visit the temple and then go to mall for shopping. Temple was on the uphill and lot of walking had to be done to reach the shrine as vehicles were not allowed till the shrine. This walk enabled the young ladies that is Disha & Hamsa to get more time spend with each other. Hamsa showed the places around the temple too by the time the elders made it to the bottom of the hill. Kavya Maasi was so tired after this visit that she said the rest of the plan would be postponed to tomorrow. And anyways the evening meet was more important than roaming around the city.
Keerthi Khurana and Disha were having their usual chat in Disha’s room when Maan barged in asking for his wife and Disha replied “Bhai… even I am waiting for her. She said she would be here in a minute but it has been already been 30 mins and we are still waiting for her to start.”
“Okay, she would be around only… Anyways Maa I am very happy today. We got the deal.” Maan said.
“That’s really good news. See with Kavya here you won a new deal.” Keerthi said irking her son.
“No maa it was not because of Maasi but it was because of Geet. She made the designs, Geet only prepared the presentation and today Geet brought the file too on time or else the deal was at the nick to be cancelled too.” Maan said having a delightful smile but that was short-lived as at the exactly same moment Maan noticed Kavya Maasi standing right at the door and her expression clearly showed she had heard every word of his and her anger was clearly visible. But what amazed him was his wife who stood behind maasi and tears were freely flowing from her eyes.
“Maan…” Maasi screamed out of her lungs and anger was “This is not we expected from you. How could you? You are hurting your own wife. Look at her she is so sweet and innocent, how did your heart even allow in betraying this soul.”
“Maasi, what happened, what did I do and why is she crying…” Maan asked looking confused at these two ladies.
“What happened… you are asking me…okay I will tell from the beginning” Maasi started to tell why she is reacting like this. “You must have not known that we had gone to the temple and had planned to go for shopping which you were supposed to take us but then your wife said that Maan is tired, so for a while he would rest so why don’t we go to temple by that time even he will be free and can join us bit later. I was fine with that idea but then our bad luck that I was tired and my legs were hurting even to put a step forward so we had to cancel it but as usual none came to help me. Why? Because I am always harsh at everyone so none will come to my rescue. I know that is price I pay for my rudeness but then here she came to me when I was still struggling to apply the spray. So kind of her that she helped me even after my harsh tone at the table today morning. I thanked her and said you are perfect for our Maan as you have the patience to take his anger. You are lucky as even Maan loves you or else he wouldn’t have come to the table morning and avoid me along with the clashes. But the reaction I got was just heart breaking as she turned silent, sad, gloomy and I even saw a drop of tear in her eyes. When I probed her then she spat out that out Maan is seeing one of his staff. She joined his company quite recently and has achieved much more than anyone else could have. First she ignored it but then when she got to hear the constant talks of them and the praise he would do she was sure of it. I actually didn’t believe her at first and thought to expose her true colors infront of you all but after listening to Maan now I am sure Hamsa is not wrong in thinking what she said.”
“And the way Maan now was giving credit to his staff I am sure he is betraying his lovely wife and look at her. How much she should have concealed it in her. How could she tell this to her own in-laws that their son’s play? She isn’t even able to cry freely.” Kavya continued while she engulfed Hamsa in her arms.
It was not even for a minute when she lost her consciousness and fell lifeless on the ground as Kavya couldn’t handle that much weight but couldn’t stop herself from taunting Maan as everyone gathered around her. “Look, what have you done to her? You have made your wife pregnant at one side and at the other side you love one of your staff.”
“Maasi… Not a word more I would want to hear from you on this. I know how to take care of my wife and also my loved ones.” Maan said in his heavy tone as he picked his wife in his arm and walked out of his mother’s room.
