PART 39 :
Geet ran behind him, Rano saw this and was glad that her decision to call khurana’s to Delhi was proving fruitful! The day was so chirpy, Geet jollying around with Maan.. It was evening when Dev suggested that Geet start her coaching clases for entrance, a 2 year course if she could enroll she would be able to stay focused, Geet had always listened to Dev, though he was a freak his decisions were like worth trying out , he would even as a kid never played with them much but would be engrossed in his books. After speaking with Rano, the kids went over to enroll Geet,mohinder accompanied them and he basic formalities were done, on their way back, Geet got the set of books that was prescribed in the institutions,.Dev fell in love with those books, he felt he was under previledged as staying in HP they couldn’t asses to this side if education, he had studied from what was available at his disposal and had topped the entrance, had he access to these he would have done better but no complaints atleast he was going to start IIT he was happy….
A week passed by and Geet was relaxing, she though didn’t bring up the issue, nor did he but there was a deep level of understanding with each other like before, his epilepsy attacks had almost come down these days, he was enjoying the holidays to maximum, and Geet’s classes had begun, it would be 3 hour class daily, he would go every morning with her to drop her and then go to park and play with the local boys and then when her classes are over would pick her at 10 and they would go back home, one side Geet kept on studying , working hard to fulfill her ambitions to become a doctor and other side Maan would not leave a single chance to jump around with the local guys and play non stop, full day he would go visit them and play, at nights Geet used to sit and study for the daily tests, it was these times that Dev would sit with her so that she doesn’t doze off, she would pull Maan also, he would keep staring at her and then sleep off over the couch looking at her.
It was the Physics test next day ,she had been studying whole day, even Anni stayed away that day, engrossed in movies and Surfing outside, Finally after Dinner Geet pulled Dev to her study room and started solving all the derivations, poor Dev had hard time explaining it all to her, Maan was going restless he hadn’t seen her the entire day, finally he went over to the room tosee her diped n books, Dev gave a save me look , Maan whispered him to go sleep it was half past midnight, she didn’t even tatke her head up to look , he kept staring at her waiting her to respond n finally at 1 she looked up and made baby faces searching for Dev since she was struck up in some equation, Maan just pulled her books and kept it aside and went close to her, she gave him a deathly stare, he chuckled at her , and pulled her to his emrace, enough Geet I know you have studied enough… now go lseep, he said it tilting his face over her ears, she was blushing tight, with great difficulty she pushe him, Look Maan she tried thinking to speak something and then burted out suddenly.. I wanna eat ice cream !! He opened his mouth wide, she faked tears, am hungry I want Ice cream now that’s it… Give me…. He was like mentally banging his head, and after some more tantrums he got up, Geet ok wait for few min, ll be back!!
And I sit here staring at all the Ice they’ve presented me
And I frail,
I flounder around wondering what all this means.
Why have you brought me this?
What have I done, that no one else has, to deserve any of this?
Why do you look at me like I am bliss?
The incarnate of some emotion in your eyes…
And why are you
Have your pupils dilated or have mine expanded?
There is distance here
And I am not the top of your pedestal.
I must shatter something.
I must combust a little,
And spill some ice cream all over the room.
I throw a few handfuls of marble and chocolate batter at the ceiling
I twirl a little in a fury, getting my skirt stuck on everything
And spread some of this icing on the silverware, the refrigerator, your faces.
I have to cover them a little.
Because I am not so great.
And this? Theseice creams?
I don’t know why you brought them to me.
So I have to throw them,
In a fireball-girl-twirl -ing
I have never been able to sit still well with this much attention.
So I stamp out the next Sanctuary,
And go back to my normal self,
PRECAP : Confessionss!!!
