Geet was in still blabbering something to her sister when her cell rang. She would have ignored it but then thought against it and attended it thinking Maan might need something. Before she could say hello she heard his meek voice “Geet… do you have any tablet for fever?”
“What happened? You are not feeling well?” Geet asked anxiously.
“Geet… I am fine, we were there in the water park in the evening time so may be a bit tired and body ache. I don’t want that to turn into a fever. So if you have a tablet then let me know where it is. I would take it; you need not worry about it.” Maan played with his words as he exactly knew his wife’s reaction. She wouldn’t wait for a minute and would be at his door step. And in next second there was a knock on the door.
“Now who is knocking at the door. Can’t a sick man rest peacefully?” Maan added though he knew who it was.
“I am knocking. Why have you locked it? How was I supposed to come in? What’s taking so long to open one door?” She cribbed as she was unaware of the deliberate delay.
“Geet… it is you… wait for a minute I will open?” Maan made sure she waited anxiously.
As the door opened Geet barged in to check on her hubby dear who stood taking the support of the door and lazily made his way towards the bed after making sure he bolted the door to avoid any disturbance.
“Geet what are you searching in the bags… come here” Maan called her to bed. “Even you played in water park, you must also rest or else you will be in the same state as I am. Come here let me check you…”
“I am not feeling any tiredness. Let me give you medicine, I have it in my kit.” Geet said while Maan thought wickedly “Good that she isn’t tired.”
“Here have this medicine, you will get deep sleep and then all your pain will vanish.” Geet said still not getting his play. But when she touched his hands to handover a glass of water, she jolted with the chillness as Maan had washed his hands in cold water. “You are already cold let me get you another comforter.” Geet said and tried to rush to get it but Maan pulled her before that.
“I want my special comforter…” He demanded that’s when Geet looked into his eyes and understood his plan. But still she felt what if it was just her overworking minds imagination. While she contemplated about what to say or do he switched the places and he was now over her.
Geet was now sure her prem was all fine and it was a plan to call her. He started his assault and now her mind was not in a position to think anything else but to feel the emotions which he awoke. They were both drifting to such a state where mind had no work but to rest. Both had missed each other for a quite a few days and today it was time for unleashing the captive beast in them. The world got restricted to the one other.
Outside Rajani unknown to the things happening between her sister and brother in law was getting worried for Maan and his health and was also ready to barge in to help her little sister. This worry was actually trouble her husband.
“Rajani… Where are you going?” Shekar, her husband asked.
“I will go and give these medicines to Maan. Or else you go and give by that time I will get some soup for him.” Rajani said.
“But…” He was ready to explain it to her over caring wife about Geet not being a little girl anymore. But Rajani had flown from there in next second.
He was about to knock on the door but something in him said against it. The feeble sounds were heard making him realise that he was right and should not interfere. So he quickly made way towards kitchen where he had to make her understand.
“Rajani… there is no need of all these. They have slept off so let not disturb them. They need rest. Geet is big enough to handle these situation and they don’t require our interference.” He said.
Though bit dissatisfied Rajani didn’t oppose him and kept quite to check on them first early in the morning.
At the first sound of the birds chirping Rajani used to be awake everyday but the restlessness for her little baby sister made her sleep only the wee hours of morning. So as a caring husband it was Shekar who was taking care of all the responsibilities of the guests.
Arjun was the incharge for today’s sight seeing plan. So he was making sure that everyone would be ready. He knew his boss wouldn’t join today because Maan had to be with his relatives. But when Geet wasn’t there he thought to enquiry her BIL or sister. But when he was unable to find anyone he tried Geet’s cell but it was unanswered as Geet had left that where she and Rajani were chatting last night. Shekar was the one who noticed Geet’s mobile and kept it safely.
Tired of trying Arjun was ready to leave her and move out for the day as he recalled Shekar’s statement when both sisters had met. “These two sisters would forget the time and keep on chatting. Today night these two would be busy in their own world of gossips.”
To confirm his doubt he saw Shekar & Rajani speaking to one another.
“Rajani… You woke up?”Shekar
“Yes…” Rajani said “Did Geet wake up? Or she was still sleeping.”
“She must be still in her bed.” Shekar said.
Hearing to those words, Arjun and other staff made their way out leaving Maan and Geet for different reasons.
Maaneet came out late in the morning to have their breakfast or say brunch as they had slept late after long night. On enquiry of illness both just said that he was fine but there eyes did had the spark of last night. To avoid being more interrogated, Maan asked for some nearby place to visit.
So all the four planned to visit some nearby place, after leaving the place they thought to go to an ancient temple which was nearby. There was a custom which was followed in that temple wherein women were supposed to cover their head with their paloo while men attire should be dhoti & shawl but when they are in shirt and pant they could enter if they removed their upper garments. (Note: there are temples which follow these customs in south India so don’t be surprised)
None had any problem until Geet realised some young college girls who were there for darshan. They were giggling at themselves; she ignored that initially as girls would usually do that but then when they were often looking at her husband. Her anger was at its peak, being in temple she was supposed to be having peace of mind but here there was unrest in her.
She thought of all the different ways to keep her husband safe from these evil eyes. Finally she thought to stand in between her husband and those girls but who was she kidding. They also shifted place to have an uninterrupted view. Her husband was irresistible with those any attire on and now he would be the end of it.
Geet was supposed to go round the temple but instead she was going round her husband. Which was being noticed by many now? And they were giving weird looks at her.
Rajani who looked at Geet warned her “Geet, look in the front it is not the time to play stand still Aarthi is going to start now.”
Geet made a face but then she followed as told anyways she was glad as Maan made way so that she could stand in front of him and see the Aarthi. Not to forget the glares which she gave to those girls.
All came out and then Rajani started to shout at Geet for what she was doing inside the temple. Unable to accept the reason behind it Geet silently kept listening to her. Where as her BIL Shekar who came behind with Maan after collecting the prasadam couldn’t control more at his SIL state but laugh out. While Rajani looked a bit surprised at her husband but then Maan kinda of guessed that it was something related to the thing which Geet was doing.
“Jiju… you are not telling anything.” Geet warned but he was not ready to leave a very good chance to corner Geet thought which she gave it on her own.
“You never leave a chance to corner anyone then how can I leave this golden chance?” He said while explaining the reason behind Geet’s behaviour.
Geet got embarrassed but then she couldn’t hide what she felt or did at that time was something not in her control. After a bit time everything stabilised and everyone were back in the jolly mood with pulling each others leg for the rest of the day.
