He smiled in the kiss before kissing her passionately almost taking her breath out.

He looked at the sight feeling disgusted to watch it. But to his frustration that dirty creature had made whole mess of his room spreading his milk all over the room.

His eyes widen in horror thinking that she is already not well.

She huff with his anger and make a baby face looking at her shona .
Itna kyun gussa karte hai ..!!
It was after two days he called her to his study for something very important according to him the way he seems serious at that point.
Geet was nervous thinking that what is that ?? With her nervousness she went to his study room where he was busy with his laptop engross so much that fail to notice her.she pouted seeing that and knock hard on the door making him snap up his head from his work. He was ready to burst on a person who dared to disturb him and knocking hard on a door. But as he looked up only to see his jaan pouting at his way angrily and now was taken a back by his angry glares.
Maan immediately soften seeing her , he stood up from his chair and take steps towards her. She watch him turning soft and smile nervously.
He reached her and pulled her inside holding her both hands, once she was closed enough to him , he whispered sensuously in her ear.
You don’t need to knock or take my permission, YOU ARE MY WIFE !! His few words of authority send chill down her spine .she was happy to heard that from him , her Saheb.
She smile nodding in affirmative silently to his words still didn’t utter any words.
He looked amused taking her in his arms he led her inside closing the door behind them.once they sat comfortable on sofa he asked her holding her chin.
Why are you so silent?
Aap kuch important baat kehna chahte the ?
Oh ha..geet I have something to asked you ? He remember why he had called her and let her slip on the bed while he fetch some papers from his study table.Geet looked at him curiously when he approached her with papers in hands.
Mrs.Singh has already informed him about her studies completion.she had complete her work of making geet ready for what she had asked from MSK.
He can’t thank enough to that old lady who had help his jaan to mold her into a educated person which she is now. He knows now no one had never did it apart from Mrs Singh.
What would you like to do geet ..now for your future ? He asked her seating beside her facing her.
Ji ? Hum kuch samze nahi , saheb ?? Geet looked confused.
He sigh ,thinking how to make her understand. He take her soft palm in his hands and press it starting his conversation.

Geet smile brightly like a child getting appreciate from her Saheb.

Geet was all confused but she just nodded silently not wanted to make his hope crash with her stupidity. She herself don’t know about it but Maan and Mrs Singh was sure of it that’s why he take a decision now.
Mrs.Singh has taught you everything and so did you had studied , don’t you ? He again asked trying to make her understand and she just nodded again reminding of the days of her studies.

But he can’t forget even , because of this past of hers only landed her in khurana mansion and he met her.
Coming out of his thoughts he looked at her , she was lost still not able to get it clearly.
Career ? Par hume kuch bhi nahi chahiye..hum aapki bas patni Banke rahna chahte hai..she spoke up childishly not able to think anything more.
Maan huff in frustration , her denial to everything he asked made him frustrated, he can’t be angry on her also.

He hold her face with his both palm trying to make her understand but it’s all like a big big things to her innocent mind. She can’t able to get his words. from a childhood being in 4 walls didn’t let her to think in this way.

His jaw tighten in anger.he gritted his teeth , his eyes red in fury at her behavior. He left her and closed his tight to control it not to burst on her.

But she heard it along that a chill ran down her spine sensing his anger but what is her fault if she didn’t understand anything. .she is trying. .but..before she could think more he busted on her finally loosing it.
I SAID LEAVE.!! He shouted that she almost jump on her place with a soft muffle.

It’s not for me dammit !! It’s for YOU..ONLY YOU.!! Why don’t you understand?
Saheb..!! She cry out with his harsh tone and hold. It’s almost redden her pinkish skin.
But he was too much furious today.first of all his workload in office taking toll in him..but in mid of this he had thought about her. Her further education but she is not ready Co operate.if she is ready then not for herself but for him.Why.?
And this tears ?? How many times I have to said you geet .don’t spill it..at least not in front of me ..I hate it !! And every time, I will be not there to wipe it off !! He shouted frustrated on her weakness.
He wanted her to be strong that no one can able to hurt her behind his back. Today he is realizing she is nothing without his or dadima’s support.

This is the reality Jaan !! You have to understand! ! You have to be independent that no one can able to raise there finger on you !! He tried again with his voice raising to new level of insanity .
Nahi…bas..kijiye..hume..bas Aap chahiye! ! Please..she hug him tightly making him weak in his resolve .but he had to be rude and strict..he have to for her own benefit..if not then she will not understand. Thinking so he pushed her hard angrily controlling his all other emotions that signifies his love.

Geet stop dead shock not able to understand his words.
Aap yeh kya bol..rahe ho..Aap toh humse pyar karte ho na..?She asked innocently.
Ha..it’s my mistake to love you!! Saying so he rushed from there not able to bear more her sad face which reflecting her innocence, her inner turmoil her pain and confusion.
Geet , she felt her knees goes weak.her legs wobble not able to bare the pain she slide down on the floor and broke into loud sons. Shona who was all the while sleeping peacefully but hearing his loud voice he hide behind and when he heard her cries he ran towards her licking her wet cheeks trying to console her but she seeing his care for her started to cry more cuddling into him.
Dadima looked at her dear child with so much worries written on her face. Geet was crying continuously non stop not listening to her or telling her the reason behind her cries. Softy has finally let go of her and had went to sleep but she was no where to stop too hurt with her saheb’s words .he thought it’s a mistake to love her and even married her. She broke into more painful sobs making that old ladies heart pained.
Dadima, he ..he…he …don’t love …me . Nor he… did ..wanted to ..married me . She sobbed hard telling her pain out to her only dadima .who didn’t understand at first but later got it all but was shock hearing her.
Beta.kya hua hai ? Dadima asked lovingly whipping her tears .geet flung herself in her arms and well out again to her dismay as she told her everything that what had happened.
After an hour dadima was thinking of what geet had told her. She was amazed at what had happened between them.it was not bound to happen when her grandson had to take another easy ways to make her understand and take the situation in right way but it went on wrong way.she sigh thinking of geet’s non stop crying.
She made her way towards his gym knew well of her dear grandson where he must be now. As she assume he was giving himself pain letting out his frustration on ownself.
As he was about to broke another ice cube she barge inside stopping from doing do but he did broke that with high scream.
MAAN.. Aap kabhi nahi sudhrenge. She said out taking his hand in her own to see blood dripping from his injuries.
If you want to change anyone then change her.your lovable child ! His voice was harsh but coated with concern .
And you take the wrong way , son ! Dadima aid his hand bandaging it.
I did the right thing , she is not going to understand. He stubbornly reply with his high head.
That what I am saying , she will not understand or understanding because she is not capable or too innocent to do so . right now .she added assuring him , she will .
Seeing him silent she continue.
Maan , have you thought, it’s all easy for her they way we think or faced everything. His browse arched in confusion.
Have you not seen her sufferings day and night even at her own home. His expressions change into realisation to anger .
Leave that aside. Have you not thought about her life being there in just four walls named home. She illiterate on that never came out from that four walls of her unless and untill her mother found it necessary. Then coming into khurana mansion it was also not less than her own home.
Maan his fist tighten which was noticed by dadima who unclasp it slightly not letting him to hurt it again.
No..don’t repeat the same mistake, son.
Don’t forget the first thing that all her 20 years she was caged in that four walls , where she didn’t get education to know more about the outer world.she wasn’t aware of the word career . If you have given her education now .so don’t think you have achieved that desirable thing.
He looked at her confused asking explanation to which she gave him.
Son , you forgot she get the education here inside mansion not in some school or college to get to the root. It’s all different maan ,you have to understand .the things we learn in outer world , school or college that can not be learn in specific 4 walls. She was alone here just with her teacher .are you understanding , son what I am saying ?
Maan nodded getting to know the things. As the realisation dawn on him , he asked her.
Dadima, now what should we have to do ?
If she is not understanding then make her understand in her own way , son. Let her decide her future , what she wants, what she desire .don’t force her .dadima said thinking about all this.
But how dadima .she is not ready to do herself. She is not ready to think about her ownself. Her future.her desires.it’s only about me , all that matters to her is only me . He poke his index finger on his chest getting hyper telling dadima his problem.
Then let her , son .she said simply.
What ? What are you saying? He was shock.
Let her maan . Let her live her life like she wished , she wanted , she desire you , let her live for you .why are you forcing her ? It’s her life she have all the rights to live it like the way she wanted. She had rights to take her own decision for her life .when time will come she herself will understand. All things will happen at the right time. dadima spoke calmly.
Dadima. You are talking like some myth and that future things now. He scoff .I don’t believe on all this things..I will do something myself. He said determine with his mind clear now that what he had to do ?
Dadima sighed biding him goodnight she left to her room leaving him to think on her words.
