Recap : Nyonika makes Manik accept her challenge by bringing Nandini as his partner/date in the Malhotraâs Annual Event
The same evening at the club
(Manik) âHi, Nandu. Busy?â
(Nandini irritated and thinking) Manik came and sat down. What did he want?
(Nandini)âNot really. Just reviewing.â
(Manik) âDid Mr. Roy invite you to the party held by our company Tomorrow?â
(Nandiniâs POV) About the partyâ¦. I donât feel like going. Too much of effortâ¦.
(Nandini) âYes. But, I donât think that I would be going. I donât have my dresses with me now. They are with my aunt.â
(Nandiniâs POV) I hope he will drop it with this.
(Manik) âWhat? You are not coming because you donât have a dress. Buy one. This is the first meet you will be attending held by our company.â
(Nandiniâs POV) True, but I just donât feel like it. This will be my first break after a long time.
(Nandini then told) âNope. I donât want to waste money with petty things. All my money is invested in properties now. I donât have cash till next week. Besides, I rarely get dresses which suit me. Most of my dresses are tailor-made.â
(Manik just spilled the beans out) âPlease, be my date Tomorrow. I will get you the dress and accessories. I donât have a date. If not, I donât have to go.â
(Nandini) âThen, donât go. Or hire a roadside female escort.â
(As soon as she said that, Rishabh continued) âGo on, Didi. Have some fun.â
Rishabh suddenly popped up from behind.
(Nandiniâs POV) When did he get here? Have fun? This is my long awaited break.
(Nandini )âRishabh! (shouting at him and then turning back to Manik). Ask someone else, Manik. How did you go to other parties of your company?â
(Manik) âI was my motherâs date.â
Rishabh hugged me from behind. âPlease, Didi. Go ahead. Enjoy your night Tomorrow.â
(Nandini) âRishabh, you just want to go stay over at Peterâs home to have fun, now that exams are over and no more group studies. That is why you are asking me to go, isnât it?â
(Rishabh) âI promise, Didi. This will be last stay over. Please? After that as you say, all the stay-overs will be at our home. Please?â
(Nandini) âSigh. Fine. Go to your sleep over. But remember what you just said.â
(Rishabh) âThank you. I love you, Didi. You are the best didi in the world and Good night.â Rishabh kissed Nandini on her cheeks and went up.
(Manik) âSo, it means yes to me, too?â
(Nandini) âManik! You are still here! Just because I said ok to Rishabh, doesnât mean its ok to you. Also, Rishabh didnât ask for you. He did it for himself.â
(Nandiniâs POV) I should really stop working in the lobby. Whenever I work or talk on phone, Manik always pops up in the middle, its really irritating.
(Manik) âI am also begging you like Rishabh.â
(Nandiniâs POV) He looked at me with puppy eyes. Not possible. This wouldnât sway me.
(Manik)âPlease, Nandu. How can I, the host, not attend? Pleaseâ¦..â
(Nandini) âFind a hired female escort, for goodness sake!â
(Manik) âPlease, Nandu. It wonât look good.â
(Nandiniâs POV) What he says is true but do I have to ruin my break for him?
(Nandini spoke) âDress and accessories free; no price limit on dress I choose. If you can agree to that, then, I donât mind.â
(Nandini chuckled in her mind) He will surely not accept to this. He leaned back.
(Manik) âSigh. You are more expensive than a hired female escort.â The Impudence!
(Nandini)âFine then. I will stay at home, thank you. It is not like I NEED to attend it. I donât think I will be reproached for not going to the party.â
(Manik feeling guilty) âSorry Nandu, very sorry, I didnât mean it in a rude manner. I meant you are worth it. I need more practice in controlling my thoughts and words. I really didnât mean any offence. I accept your deal. Donât worry. You wonât dent my pocket. Letâs go shopping Tomorrow.â
(Nandiniâs POV) Why did he have to agree? I was so sure that he wouldnât accept it. Now, I need to go with him.
(Nandini again spoke) âShopping Tomorrow and go there at what time? Letâs do this. We will start at four. Choose the dress and finish everything and go directly.â
(Manik) âFine with me. So this means, I need to get a new suit.â
(Nandini) âI guess so (giggle). Good night, Manik.â
(Nandiniâs POV) He sat there and looked deep in thought. Maybe, he really didnât have a choice, except to ask me out.
(Manikâs POV) Yes, finally Nandu has accepted to be my date.
Background Song : Jeene Laga Hoon Pehle Se Zyada
Pehle Se Zyada Tum Pe Marne Laga Hoon…
Main Mera Dil Aur Tum Ho Yahaan…
Fir Kyun Ho Palkein Jhukaye Waha…
Tum Saahasee Pehle Dekha Nahin…
Tum Isse Pehle The Jane Kahaan…
Jeene Laga Hoon Pehle Se Zyada.
Pehle Se Zyada Tum Pe Marne Laga…
Thinking about her and he just dozed off
Precap : Will Nandini look pretty? Will Manik win bet against his mom?
