She thought a lot and asked him. "If I sing will you stop crying?"
His heart lightens up listening to his friend who’s giving all the happiness he lost till now. He smiled widely showing his broken teeth.
"Your voice is sweet. I like music, so I will play the music. Will you sing for me?"
He desperately waited for her yes. She felt happy seeing his smile and blinked in assurance.
"So join in my music class. We can have lots of fun," he wrote.
She felt happy to spend more time with him. "I will ask Mom, Dad, to join me in your music class,"
She was not fond of music. Her parents once joined her in music class but she cried to hell and left it. Now to make her Cutie Pie happy, she pestered, cried and made her house upside down. Finally, her parents accepted after all her drama.
On the first place, Mehra couple understood the reason but played the stubborn game to annoy their little Princess. So, after lots of drama, they finally accepted and joined her in Mahish’s music class.
Both the parents are happy seeing their kid’s happiness, even they became good friends. Like this, their friendship grew stronger every single day. Nanmaya won't spare anyone who bullies Mahish. He was scared to fight back but she been his backbone and made him strong to fight back in any situation.
She started liking the music because of his passion and dreamt all his dreams as hers. He may not sing but can make her learn it. He learned to whistle and prepared a few sounds accordingly, to express his emotions easily. She loved the idea and praised him to the peaks.
He started showing his vulnerable side to her not even to his parents but shared with her. She shows all her craziness only to him because no one in the world can bear her antics.
Once they both are playing and suddenly Nanmaya pouted without any particular reason.
"Now what happened?" He wrote.
"Our names are tough to spell," she exclaimed sadly playing with her dress.
He thought for a while, looking at her. She saw him and gestured what. He gestured her to wait. Suddenly an idea popped into his head.
He wrote, "MaNan," tore the paper and gave it to her.
She saw the name, thought deeply, finally understood the meaning of that name and hugged him tightly.
"You are so intelligent. You combined our names and made as MaNan. Wow, you are amazing," she blabbered squeezing him.
He pushed her and took a breath of relief. She giggled and caressed the name on the paper. Their parents saw this and felt happy. Already Raj and Rohan thought to start a business and this made their opinion strong. After a few months, they started a software company and worked hard. Even Sushma and Aliya became close friends.
Mehra couple can’t have another kid because of Sushma second time miscarriage, so she got operated according to doctor suggestion. Aurora couple doesn’t want to have another kid as they want to give all the love to Mahish. So Aurora couple pamper Nanmaya as their own and vice-versa.
Time flew along with their bond and growth in business too.
Nanmaya was thirteen years old and Mahish was fourteen. One day she sat sadly waiting for her Cutie Pie. Both Aurora and Mehra couple tried their best to know the reason but there is of no use.
So, they impatiently waited for her friend who went to his new obsession saxophone class. Finally, he arrived and observed the silent environment which is unfamiliar in the presence of Nanmaya. Their parents signed him to handle her. He came and sat to her left side.
He whistled, ‘What happened?’ tune relaxing on the sofa.
He didn't get the answer but heard her sniff. He turned her towards him and found her tears. He cupped her face wiping the tears with his thumb. She is not looking into his eyes, so he raised her chin with his thumb. Finally, she saw him with painful eyes.
He left her, "Now tell me what happened?" Signed looking into her teary eyes.
Their parents trust them. So, they always support being in a silent mode. They will enter only when the situation was not in control but mostly MaNan solve the issues efficiently.
"Class ten, Rakesh asked me to tie rakhi to you," she said, sniffing.
He felt funny as the devil was crying for a silly reason, so he laughed. She glared pinching his palm. He tried to control but miserably failed. She turned to the other side with an angry pout. He laughed his heart out and finally, controlled.
"Do you want to tie rakhi to me?" He signed.
"No..." She screamed sobbing loudly.
He smiled, "So, the issue is closed," signed relaxing on the sofa.
"But he threatened me to do it," she said wiping her left cheek with her knuckle.
"Your wish is most important rather than anyone's threatening," he signed with his mesmerizing smile.
He wiped her tears and signed to smile.
"If he asks me?" She asked innocently.
"Tell him to meet me or before that, I may handle the situation. Who knows?" He signed with a wink.
She smiled, wiping her tears and hugged him tightly. He pushed her, taking a breath of relief narrowing his eyes.
"You are the best," she said pinching his cheeks hard. He jerked her hands and rubbed his cheeks.
“Rakhi is a precious thing. It should be tied with a strong bond and emotion but not because someone forced you. We are friends, so we should tie the friendship band but not rakhi,” he signed with a smile.
She felt happy for his words as till now she got scared to tie rakhi to him for an unknown reason.
"Sometimes I get doubt. Are you the same girl who fights for her dumb friend?" He signed mischievously.
"I told you not to repeat that word. I'M YOUR VOICE, always. Please stop thinking like that," she said angrily with tears.
He started keeping cute faces closing his left eye, pulled his right ear, chanting sorry. She smiled hugging him.
"Sometimes, even I get doubt. Are you the same boy who can't fight for him but now breaking anyone’s bones for his Doll?" Aliya said with a naughty smirk.
He turned towards his mother and smiled. "No, I’m not that scared rat anymore. My best friend made me strong enough to handle the situation," he signed and side hugged Nanmaya.
She felt bliss and kept looking at him which was observed by Raj.
"Now let's go and eat ice-cream," he signed and pulled her with him.
After they left, "Rohan, I want to say something," Raj initiated in a serious tone.
"You want my permission but not Sushma? What a day came in my life?" Rohan said naughtily.
Aliya hit his shoulder while Sushma narrowed her eyes at him.
"Guys, come on be serious," Raj said looking at all.
Everyone became attentive. "First listen to me completely and tell your decision," Raj said looking at Aurora couple. They assured with a nod.
Raj started with a serious face. "Rohan, I want you guys to shift to the new mansion along with us. Give me the half amount of the cost and share the home. I always have this thought but didn’t share with you guys. Now our kid’s helped me with their bonding. Till now we felt Mahi as our kid and Nanmu as yours. But after seeing what happened now, I want to give my Princess to Mahi.” Aurora couple got surprised.
“We all know that they can take care of each other and by living in the same place can make them happy and closer too. So, Please think and take a decision." Raj concluded and gazed his wife who gave an assurance smile.
"But he is mu..." Sushma cut off Aliya.
"Aliya, please tell any useful reason,” Sushma said with an angry glare, looking at Aurora couple.
They smiled happily with tears. "Sure, as you say," Rohan said happily.
All smiled and hugged each other sharing congratulations.
“Let's surprise kids on the day of housewarming,” Rohan said with a wink
"Yes and already their music room was ready with soundproof. I’m sure, this will make my son-in-law happy," Raj said rubbing his palm in excitement.
Everyone smiled at each other with the new relationship they want to make in the future.
"But will they love each other?" Sushma got worried.
"Future will decide," Rohan said with an assurance smile.
