Tangles & Ties : Chapter 62: Yearning For You!

Overwhelmed with the response to the last chapter. I don’t have words to thank you. It seems easy to write chapters and updates, but I become uneasy and tongue-tied when people comment on those. I don’t know what to say – ‘So, thank you! Life is beautiful with you girls around me. Stay blessed. Stay happy. Lots of love.’

Wish you the best – All those who are still writing their exams. Do well. Read the updates after exams πŸ™‚

All my best wishes to all those who had their 12th results out. Wishing you for a bright future ahead. Join courses which materialize in jobs you would love to do for your entire life. Be brave. Take bold decisions to achieve your goals. Rise and Shine. Always!!Β

β€œI love you more than you could ever know!”

She didn’t speak for a long moment and held him for support while he stood still, holding her carefully in his arms as if she was a crystal figure to be handled with care.

He left her wrist, held her at her back instead and pulled her closer, not removing eyes from her even for a fraction of a second, cradling her face in his other hand. Her mouth went dry at the sudden and unexpected confession from him… Someone who didn’t even believe in words.

Her eyes were moistened but she neither dropped the tear nor she spoke anything. He lowered his face closer to her and she closed her eyes, overwhelmed and deeply moved. He kissed her eyelid. She could hold no more. A tear rolled down from each of her eyes.

He kissed her cheek, taking that tear in his mouth and whispered, β€œI know it wasn’t up to your expectations. But I couldn’t stop myself when you asked about my idea of love. My idea of love is ‘you’… everything about you is love… and I’m sorry… It was nothing fancy as you must have imagined as per your fairytales. I wish I could…”

β€œSssshhhh!!!” This was one of those times when she shut him up. She opened her eyes and let her fingers rest over his lips, softly but firmly. β€œDon’t spoil it by saying so. It was perfect. β€˜You’ are perfect! It was nothing like what I had ever imagined as per my fairytales…it was beyond that… it was β€˜you’… it was the only way you could have done it, Manik. No pretentions, no show-off, no trying to be someone else… just you!”

Speechless, he squeezed her closer into him, to completely engulf her in his arms and bent his neck to softly brush his lips over hers, leaving a momentary feather-soft peck over them. She closed her eyes again and sighed. The very next moment, she tiptoed to reach higher, keeping her hands near his collar and initiated another kiss, passionate and intense this time, making him seize her mouth in another deeply consuming kiss, shaking her to the core.

He was always left overwhelmed whenever she initiated a kiss. It was another unspoken silent moment of complete acceptance and approval. A moment that said that she wanted him as much as he did.

He was aware that he was not perfect. No human could ever be perfect or even close to it. But every human does have a good face and a bad face. It keeps changing with people and circumstances. Nandini’s love, trust, support, acceptance, patience, and understanding ensured that his irritating, impatient, rude facets stayed subdued and rarely came to surface. His good side refused to go away when she was with him.

He might not be perfect but he wanted to be perfect… for her!

The way she had said that he was the center of her universe and she didn’t need anyone else to make her happy was enough to assure him how highly she considered him, even before her family and friends. It was really huge when a girl begins to keep her partner and their relationship even before her parents’ family. It was β€˜that’ moment, when he knew that he couldn’t stop himself anymore from telling her that he thought the same about her. She was important. Very important to him!

His lips moving in urgency over hers spoke to her everything that he had been thinking about but couldn’t convey to her. Her surrender spoke about her feelings.

He was waiting for the same declaration from her… especially when she was so vocal about all her feelings and everything in general. He wanted to hear in words if she loved him too. Everything about her gestures and behaviour declared that she loved him and he had guessed it a while back. He knew that she loved him. All that she said and spoke about him was love. The way she cared about him was love. And the way she threw silent stealing glances at him, wanted him around her, seeking him, looking out for him, keeping in mind his likes and dislikes was all love. And who could understand it more than someone who had always believed in gestures. He had been reading her gestures.

But such is the human mind. Not satisfied to settle with less!!

He wished to hear it too. From her!Β That she loved him.

Too shaken and overwhelmed, it didn’t even occur to her that there is something like β€˜I-love-you-too’… Not her fault though. He had been kissing her so passionately and deeply after a sudden, unexpected confession that she went along with the flow and let her be immersed in the elixir of affection he had provided her.

One after the other, several kisses followed, deepened and culminated in a silent expression of love. Every move, every kiss, every gesture of her conveyed to him how much she loved him, except her words.

Making love was just the next step, a gradual progression and a natural turn at this moment. None of them either stopped or tried to speak anything. It wasn’t needed. Wasn’t expected. Wasn’t even necessary.

Or so she thought…

………………………………………………….

After a long beautiful night, the morning arrived with them waking up in each other’s arms, tangled and tied together, struggling to get up and open their eyes.

She blushed profusely when she turned in bed and found him holding her close to him, his face settled in the crook of her neck, his warm breath brushing at her skin. He gave her a quick peck on her neck.

β€œGood morning!” She smiled.

β€œI love you!” He murmured in a husky deep voice, so sleepy that it appeared sexy by default.

She blushed more and snuggled close to him. He drew her closer, β€œWon’t you say something?”

She bit her lower lip, and replied with a coy blush, β€œWhat do I say? It was so unexpected, so sudden, so honest that I was blown away… the way they write in books? Like, it swept me off my feet… I couldn’t believe it.. especially, coming from you, I was tongue-tied and speechless… even now, I am. I could feel the thrill in every cell of my body… It’s the most amazing moment of my life… I’m still wondering if it is true…”

“Gawwwdddd!!! You can write an essay on everything. You will go on and on… but won’t say the obvious…”

“Means??”

He smiled adoringly, and hopelessly, and with a frustrated sigh. β€œYou are strange, Nandu. So unpredictable yourself!! When you should stay quiet, you ramble non-stop. And when you should be saying something really important, you are speechless??!!! Phewwww!!!! Great!!!!”

She frowned slightly in an attempt to think, tilted her chin cluelessly, appearing cute and innocent to his smitten eyes, though she had just woken up from sleep. Everything about her was adorable – the satisfied, yet tired look on her face, dreamy eyes, messy hair which were so soft and silky that he couldn’t stop from playing with them and straightening them using his fingers.

β€œAm I supposed to say something?? What???” She shrugged.

He lost his smile and rolled his eyes, giving her a pointed look, β€œForget it!”

Immediately, she realized her mistake and could easily guess what he wanted to hear. And it made her giggle, irking him more. She left him and sat straight on the bed, taking her long hair behind and tying them in a loose bun at the nape of her neck. Laughing hard, she said, β€œI’m sorry!! I was so taken aback last night, that I forgot to say it… I didn’t know that it was going to irk you so much…”

Hopeful this time, he sat straight too and with expectant eyes, he asked, β€œSo?? You can say it now?”

β€œAlright! I’ll say it,” She held his hand, looked into his eyes and with a soft whisper, she teased him, β€œβ€˜Thank you so much, Manik. Your words, your gestures, everything last night touched me!!”

With that, he was left dumbfounded. Staring at her with the same sharp look while she giggled like carefree bird chirps around the house, happy and content. On one hand, he wished to stay immersed in that laughter, drown in those eyes… and on the other, she made him roll his eyes, irked and frustrated.

β€œIs this what you say, when someone tells you – I love you???!”

She faked a surprised, genuine, concerned, serious look, β€œNo??? Then… You tell me, what to say??”

β€œNothing!!!” He pressed his lips together and left them with a click sound. Next moment, he got up and left the room to go to the washroom, leaving her giggling again.

It was her day, so they got ready to go to visit the places she had marked in the itinerary. And it was β€˜her’ day in every sense.

It was special. Glorious and gorgeous.

He had confessed his love to her. He had spoken it in words. She could already feel the air bubbling with the effervescence of love all around them.

It was weird but for the first time in her life, she β€˜wanted’ to look pretty, not aware that he found her attractive even in sleepy form and messy hair. She didn’t know that. She just wanted to dress up and be at her best, for him.

He wanted her to notice him, not aware that she already did… all the time!!! He wanted her to realize how charming he was. While she already wondered what made him such a magnet that she was drawn to him at all times!

 

 

They got ready to go out.

He observed her and knew that it was different for her today. She had an unusual, ecstatic jumpy stride to her feet. Her eyes twinkled more than everyday and her smile was amplified to an unseen magnitude. He had never expected that few words from a man could make this difference in a woman.

He had always admired that she was generally a happy soul… but today she was happier than before.

“We’ll go to Rotterdam and Zaanse Schans today!” She spoke, looking into her diary and walking ahead.

When they stepped out after locking the cottage door, he held her elbow and stopped her.

β€œHmm?” She turned around, grinning.

One word at a time, deep and compelling, he asked, β€œSo you won’t say it???”

She shrugged innocently, walked back to him. Leaning by his side, snaking her palm on his chest, she whispered a languorous, soft, β€œAm I supposed to say something?”

He used his eyes yet again, with a look piercing into her eyes, spearing through her soul and clicked his lips, β€œNo!! And now, even if you want to say it, I won’t listen!”

His anger was one to die for! He became such a kid whenever his basic traits come to fore. She pressed her lips knowingly. It had been difficult to hide her grin. She felt bad for a moment for irritating him so much, but then he had been teasing her ever since they got married. He also told her that she was silly and stupid to think and talk about romance, read romantic books and lived in a fairytale. So, he had earned this tease for himself. On top of everything, he was a blast when he was angry and irritated and she loved to see this intense look when it was for not a serious issue! It was for her! He was clearly waiting for her to confess her love to him. She hated to irritate him but she was going to continue for now.

He knew that she was doing it purposefully. He also knew that she had been the most vocal, most straight-forward girl he had ever met. But since he had teased her for being romantic and living in a fairytale, since he had left her alone, since he did everything he wanted to do and made her irked by his teases, he had to pay back by having to wait…

Wait for her to tell him… If and whether she will tell him that she loves him too…

Maybe she didn’t!!! Did she love him? Like, really love him?? Or did he misread her kindness and sweetness for love and was expecting more?

What if she didn’t love him?And all her adoration was only because they were married and living together??

Of course, she doesn’t… why would someone love me…

It should not be necessary for her to love me back, the way I do…

Wait and apprehension brings about insecurity even in the most secure relationships. When he was young, he used to pester his mom Latika for attention and accused her for loving his sister Gaurvi more. Though it was a baseless accusation, he knew that, but a craving heart just needs a little assurance that he is loved and valued, no matter how strongly he already knows it…

And it was happening again, after so many years. It had never happened before with anyone else.

He found it difficult to deal with the deep gnawing desire, a crazy yearning, a troublesome craving to hear…Β  that she loved him too!

  2. Wow so so beautiful moments Nandini plz manik ko bata do manik ko aisa Dekh ke Lagta hai ki wo negative na sochne lage so beautiful morning for Nandini I can’t express my feelings.

  3. Love in the air.. and gosh.. this insecurities.. it kills like hell… I wish this lovely moments won’t turn into messy one…

  4. I always loved the way you describe each and every scene. Again a lovely chapter. She was still basking in the effects of his verbal confessio that she forgot to reciprocate back. It changed the bond bet them. He noticed the lovely change in her, a happier nandu.Β 

    Poor boy he was so badly waiting for her confession, though he very well knows that she too loves him back.

    And thus time she was teasing him, even he knows that, still not ready to say those three words. He was upset and left asking more from her. Actually he so much craving for her attention and she was not fulfilling his this wish. Hope she will make it perfect and special during their sight seeing and not stretch it for long.Β

  5. Like Nandini even I am toung tied…..
    What should I say about this update πŸ’‘
    It’s amazingly awesome πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

    The conclusion is u are an amazing writter 😘

  6. She is such a tease! This is similar to what we saw in KYY’s Nandini. One thing Manik wants from her is her to say “I Love You” and she is a tease!

    Loved the desperate Manik here…how impatient he is getting, ha ha ha…But I believe that when she expresses herself, he would be left speachless! I am very confident on my writer

    hey btw, do you read? if so, what kind of books you read? I would love to know that…I love reading books…i used to read a lot when I was in undergrad and grad…but since past decade, it became a luxury with kids and job…started it again last year… I am open for suggestions and recommendations

    1. Hi,
      Yes, I read a lot… but I don’t read a lot of romance or love stories. I used to read them as a teenager, not anymore :))

      I read mystery, literary fiction and any good book recommended to me. Let me know your recent reads and we can talk about it :))

  7. Gestures speak volumes they say, but its true our hearts do a double take when the love is expressed in words too. Beautiful update Manita. God bless.

  8. he deserves every bit of this payback. It’s a good lesson for him to realize that words do matter and it’s important to tell the truly special people in your life how you feel about them (as often as possible πŸ™‚ ) Because you never know, there might come a time when you won’t be able to say it to them and you wish you had told them.

  9. His confession was so pure, not grand but beautiful.
    Hope Nandini stops teasing him soon and confess too. Its not easy for girls to confess their feelings also.

  10. Beautiful update wow nandu you are tease yar very bad but it’s oky manik do also this things so its oky I love this update so much

  11. I m speechless u r fabulous writers readr are never imager88u r mind blowing dear ND also waiting nandu reply

  12. Short of words to praise your way of penning down the emotion and everything so perfectly that it seems real. Simply amazing @Manita di

  13. Masha allah such a beauty this chapter is…..I am spell bound awe and speech less…..How can someone acceptance of love n proposal can be so cute…That confession had all my hearts….Beautiful mesmerizing writing….I never want their honeymoon to end ….Their romance is such a pure bliss….I can relate many instances of the feelings between manik n nandini written by you is as beautiful like wordings by umera ahmed ji and richa mam..Hats off to your writing…These little things of writing make you very special and how we can relate to your writing…So so beautiful…I want this book to be made as a movie sometime…It would be a classic cult love story….Hats off to your writing….I don’t have words to describe the way I feel about…But never stop giving us this till eternity…We love you loads….Bravo bravo bravo….Cliff hangers are as amazing like the story itself which pins us with more hopes desires expectations…Awesome fantabolous n flabbergasted di….I am in the tt la la land…Can’t get enough of it…

  14. That reply to “Good morning” –” I love you❀️” take my heart . Why stories are so magical ! ? 😭 They ‘re not real .πŸ’”

    P.S: Your writing is magical .❀️Though My words are not enough :))

  15. your so amazing…..such a talented writer you are…thank you for writing such beautiful stories….

  16. Never stop writing…!!! Day by day the more I read the more I crave for your writings!! Your gifted with some beautiful treasure of words… it’s so original!!❀️

  17. Aww they have my whole heart. i’m sure Nandu’s confession will make it up to him. But manik in this update is extra cute like a baby who needs assurance which he’ll for sure get❀️

  18. Poor soul. If she thought that there is no perfect time for confession than why she is teasing him. He is getting insecure now trouble for nandini only.

      1. yes !! would love to see a jealous, posessive manik — especially
        since he was so sure he was immune to these types of feelings in the beginning when they laid down their “conditions”

  19. β€οΈπŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ˜˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜β€οΈπŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜˜πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ˜β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ

  20. I guess she will give him the fairytale confession. Special place, special time, special arrangements everything which he does not expect and that’s what nandu exctly is. And people need to understand considering ur partner as centre of ur universe is personal thing. U cant expect someone to do it coz u r married. In arrange marriage, they expect a girl keep her in laws and her husband before her family and friends. They juz dont wanna give time and space for them to make a bond and grow into the relationship. That expections dampen the scope of beautiful bond which can be formed over the time. There will be bitterness in the relations. I loved how our hero understand all these things and he understood his importance in her life.

    1. yes, its unfair to expect all this from the girl’s side. What about the husband ? Shouldn’t the wife come before everyone else for him as well ?
      That is a true marriage, when the husband AND wife put each other first above all others.

  21. Another beautiful update.. I could visually image nandinis tear and manik taking that tear in his month. Her words actually produced goosebumps specially that perfect, no pretension, no show off part. Nandini teasing and manik’s eagerness for her confession is amazing. Hope she will confess it soon.
    I hope you are able to read my comments as from the last two update when I am clicking post it takes to another page and when I comeback from that page and again click post, it says” duplicate copy and you have posted before”.

    1. I am able to read all your comments on all the updates that you have written on, Anusha.
      It’s such a huge compliment when people try to comment even when facing difficulties… sorry for the inconvenience and heartfelt thanks!!!
      Lots of love to you

      1. It’s a great pleasure to read your updates. In fact I must say that it is my Stress buster. When I am too much sad, the thing I do is definitely reading your ffs specially spice and spark and now a days tangles and ties. It’s not enough to thank you for writing it and now double thank you for continuing in this blog. So it is not at all inconvenient to comment even if it fails because each update literally makes me spell bound, so please don’t say sorry. Hope your stories reach great heights in this blog. Is there any ranking in this site like wattpad? If yes,what we have to do for ranking purpose.
        Love you too di…..

        1. No there is no ranking system here and I don’t even believe in ranks and numbers. If I’m loved and accepted by even few, I’m happy πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–

  22. Nandini and her teasings are making him restless!!! Aww!! Poor man😜!!! But I am sure her confession is also going to be unexpected by him!!! Waiting for her side of confession so that Mr. Malhotra can be assured that she loves him too!!! Sometimes assurance is much needed in a relationship!!! Loved the update!!!

  27. Everytime I think I can’t love you more, you prove me wrong, everytime I think I can’t appreciate you more, you prove me wrong, everytime I think this is the best one, you prove me wrong by delivering another best piece.
    This update was love personified, it was intense, matured, beautiful, fun, divine…words wouldn’t suffice, I believe.
    Love truly is worship, and you made me feel and live the magnitude of this line I’m the last two updates. Everything about the chapter is beautiful that it fills my heart with warmth and makes me wanna fall in love someday.
    You’re a magician for you create magic with your words.

    1. Nandini is such a tease . Feel bad for Manik. I wonder if Nandini will go all out and confess.

  28. Eagerly waiting for Nandini’s confession. How patient Manik become impatient, your writing is awesome, I love this chapter ❀️

  29. Interesting update

  31. So there is no inline comment that’s why commenting here in between reading when Manik is complaining nandu that she won’t say the” obvious” thing and will speak everything else. And you know what I am reading this in my office canteen where 50 to 60 people are sitting and stupid me having this stupid smile and blush on my face and I even can’t stop it. What to do πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ aaj maine apna pagal banana hai….what people will think? That I have gone mad? Oh god!πŸ˜‚
    Your writing will make me crazy one day seriously Dr. πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚πŸ˜
    Very bad idea of reading this in office but kya karu control hi nahi hua πŸ€¦πŸ˜‚

  32. Thank you so much for beautiful update…..enjoyed it a lot…..lots of love😍😍

  33. Aww Manik my baby☹☹❀😭. It was so cute . What I love most about them is all the things they do looks so casual , easy and normal. But when you understand the details and their pov ,that’s where the magic begins!

  34. Indeed she also love him… No matter what differences they have, they love each other like moon and back…. Till eternity… 😍😍

  35. Amazing amazing amazing amazing amazing amazing out of the world!!!!!
    Thank u thank u so much di for this early update!!! Honestly I was waiting since last night, then I thought likhne me b to time lagega na.. then I slept. Today morning just saw the mail notification and u can’t imagine how overwhelmed and ecstatic I was!!!!
    Thank you! Now I can prepare well in peace for my exams. Although I’m still waiting for Nandini’s confession, yet I know she’s just teasing him for now and will definitely find a perfect moment to tell him wat she feels and that would b an out of the world moment for manik!!!
    I know it will b! Coz u r the writer! Honestly, can’t thank you enough for this update. “My idea of love is u!” U know it’s this kind of guy who has never felt the same before for anybody else, who knows his exact feelings and that is why u can cherish him for a lifetime and trust him blindly.. coz he won’t ever leave u. Just love manik to the core. I want someone exactly like him. This exact version of manik, caring , loving, teasing, sarcastic yet so charming that u can’t ever get out of his spell.

    1. Every man has a good and bad face. It’s quite upto a woman to decide which face she wants to have. πŸ’–πŸ˜Š

      Study well for exams. All the best πŸ‘

      1. Thank you!
        Btw, is it right.. I mean like when manik says that Nandini brings out the good in him, and all the bad is just subdued. He automatically behaves and wants to behave good with her…does it really happen? Like in kyy too, in the beginning when manik doesn’t even know Nandini properly… then also when he saves her from the cliff, he says I want to save u. Harshad says he wants to be her hero. Manik later at the time of their first kiss too says, I want to be just manik. I want to be always good . U bring out the good in me. So,, does it actually happen that a girl brings out the good in a boy? Even a bad boy? How does it even happen ..

        1. It’s not about a bad boy or a negative personality only in a male… but with every human being-
          I’ve always believed, seen and practice in my life that it’s upto us whether we want to put up with bad behaviour or not. The other person, if he/she is rude, mean, selfish, arrogant … we should put our foot down and shouldn’t allow anyone to disrespect us.. or anyone else…
          Now, the other person has a choice… he can either mend his ways or continue. Some people don’t change. At that time, you need to leave him and move on…if you can’t do that and if he is family, tell him this behaviour is unacceptable.
          You can’t change people. But you can definitely change the way they behave with you. Otherwise they are not worth it.

          In kyy, Nandu never accepted Manik’s bad behaviour when he misbehaved or disrespect when he left her for Dhruv. Everytime, he got a punch. I don’t know if you’ve read my story Spark and Spice… in that, Nandini never takes orders from anyone and she makes it very clear… and Manik eventually learns that…
          In Tangles & Ties, he did tell her to mind her own business but at that very moment she told him how it was unacceptable! Period.

          Complete acceptance doesn’t mean accepting trash treatment… People learn to behave eventually knowing you will not tolerate misbehaviour.

          At the same time, if a girl is the good versions of herself, they don’t want to leave too. So they make subtle changes, knowing it was wrong.
          That is how they want to become the best.

          I believe that every human being wants to be the best, if he/she is valued and loved.

          1. Talking about kyy… that was one difference between Fab5 and Nandini.
            Fab5 used to fan his bad qualities, his anger, his arrogance as he was a shield for them. But Nandini didn’t glorify his anger or bad manners. She ensured that either he behaved well with her or else she was not interested.

            1. Yeah that’s true…
              I actually haven’t read any of ur other stories, I plan to start them after my exams. Till then bohat Sare updates b ho jayenge unme isliye. I read tangles and ties too at one go,, at wattpad. I love reading stories at once . Coming to the issue, yes I do agree, Nandini didn’t accept manik’s bad behaviour . That’s y she was different and manik respected her too for that . Actually yes, fab5 didn’t stop him from behaving bad, but Nandini told him it was unacceptable. In ur story too I liked when in the flight Nandini totally made it clear that she won’t accept demeaning behaviour. She doesn’t take nonsense, be it from anybody. I like u for putting up such kind of a female character. I don’t like when females in stories are all surrendering and weak… I like when they r fierce and fiesty. Nandini here is also fiesty, that’s y she gives tease for a tease and manik gets “fire for fire”.. when he clearly thought of her as ice. Loved that scene too.
              Anyway yes, I feel u r right, if a person is loved and valued for who he is as a human, he would definitely want to behave good too.

          2. this is exactly what I love about all your Nandini’s — they don’t put up with nonsense from anyone no matter how much she loves them. Also, it reminds me of a beautiful quote — don’t remember who said it. “Be careful what you tolerate from others, you are teaching people how to treat you”

  36. Oh my… The feeling of loving someone and waiting for them to acknowledge back… You’ve portrayed it so well.. The insecure feeling the anxiousness… Wow…another superb chaper6

    1. Realizing love for someone and getting it confirmed from the other side is definitely the most beautiful phase of love… I feel…

  39. Waiting for nandu’s confession ❀ and if am not wrong one more thing is pending!!! At the end of Making love right, she was asked by manik what she think abt him in detail she ignored that question! Now it’s time for her to answer that question along with confession ❀ the way she is testing his patience can we expect something unique and spl confession from nandu side,let’s see🀞

      1. Yes, yes and I am expecting and I remember one more thing as well. Poetryyy !!! Am giving spoilers hahahaha. Cant wait for nandu’s confession, his confession was unexpected and came as a shock for nandu but manik’s totally different. all the day he was thinking and craving for those three word confession, how she is gonna express and how will he feel. OMG OMG. Will an emotionally available person will get emotional ?? I cant express my eagerness to read.. Damn di what have you done to us……

  40. Oh! How will I wait for next update 🀦🀦🀦🀦 Me and Manik are on same boat right now.. Manik is desperately waiting for Nandani’s confession and Me for next update.. And We both know that we have to wait 😜

  41. I am in nandu’s side!! Come on nandu you are doing goodπŸ˜› all of sudden looks like chirpy, teasing old nandu is backπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ though I feel bad for manik bechara asking time and again , all he got is thank u poor boyyyπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ now how it feels, yesterday she was asking whether she irritate u and u were teasing her giving those indirect compliments and mocking her choice of loving fairytale stories now it’s ur time to yearn for this. Though I love to see grumpy, angry and cute wala manik but after reading at the end about being insecure, I changed my mind πŸ™Š nandu enough now plzzz tell those words

    1. Exactly, yesterday he didn’t even tell her if she was irritating him. Always he irritates and teases her and mocks at her choice of books and films…
      He deserves this little tease πŸ˜€

  42. Now I can say that Manik and Nandini jaisa koi aur ho hi nahi sakta..What an update.. He don’t speak that much usually but here he had spoken everything.. And Nandu who can speak for hours just got tongue tied here..What a perfect situation.. ❀
    Indeed it is the best confession.. Decorations, dinner date, gifts leke karenge bhi kya.. Honesty is the most important thing required while comfessing and Manik is pro here.. I love his way of confession.. πŸ’•
    Hahaha.. Now it’s Nandu’s turn.. Aakhir suru se usko bhi bohot tease kiya Manik ne.. So ab ye golden opportunity mili he toh why will she miss it.. 😜 but hope wo jyada usko irritate na kare.. Already the negative thoughts are picking from the window of his mind.. So wo pure andar aane se pahle Nandu should confess him..
    And I think she will confess her love to him in hatke way..after all she is the girl who believe in fairy tails soo uske according bhi kuch hona chahiye.. πŸ˜„
    Eagerly waiting for the next one cause I am restless to know now how will Nandu speak those words which Manik wanna hear.. Aur waise bhi bolna toh usko padega nahi to Manik pura ka pura baby banke crib karne lagega.. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

    1. Decorations, dinner dates and gifts have their own place. It’s beautiful if someone does that. It’s special.
      But if someone doesn’t, it doesn’t mean they don’t love you.
      Each to his own!!
      All it matters is that you should be ‘you’… and not imitate someone else!

      1. Exactly… We girls loves this things.. And feelings are also important and yeah I too think the same you should be you.

  43. The actual and organic growth in this relationship makes me awwwww. Now the atmosphere is full of love and we can imagine and experience it along with these beautiful soulsβ€πŸ’“. Thank u di for giving us this manik and nandu❀❀ ( my forever fav characters) Getting ready for ur partner is always spl and wanted to be noticed is way more spl 😍😍

  44. My idea of love is U, everything abt u is LOVE ❀😭😭😭 oh manik what a confession, u literally stole our hearts along with nandu’s heart 😍😍 yet again nandu loved everything which was HIM, which is real and genuine, the same happened when she choose and loved his smell over artificial soups, she is so perfect when accepting someone who is real and being themselves❀ love uu nandu even I confessed after manikπŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

    1. Nandini is what Manik had never had – unconditional acceptance and assurance. Manik is what Nandini never had – unmatched dedication and commitment.

  45. Another beautiful update 😍❀
    Loving the way Manik is so eager and desperate to hear the three magical words from Nandu and she is teasing him by not saying anything. Though one hand I feel its not necessary to say it in words that what a person means to u, sometimes gestures are enough.But on the other hand, I also feel sometimes words need to be spoken, a little assurance could do wonders. So let’s see what Nandu gonna do, but whatever it is..m sure its gonna be magical and worth the wait.

    1. Manik believed the same that gestures are enough and words are not needed. But at one point of time, he couldn’t stop from saying it, even without any planning or preparation.
      Now, he wants to hear the same πŸ™‚

  46. U decided to surprise us by giving back to back updates πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ’ƒ I am so happy yayieeee πŸ’ƒ such a beautiful update ❀ and my questions we’re answered, what made manik to confessβ€πŸ’“ my guess was correct!!!!

  47. Such an oppurtunist she is.. why will she miss the such a chance when he had been merciless in his teasing.. but bande ne I love you bola na.. dont be so cruel..
    Lovely update.. enjoyed it a lot.. thank u!!

  48. Awwwieeee Manik stop being that cute.I know you want to hear those words from a certain particular person only but even if it helps soothe you a tad bit “I LOVE YOU,MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE,MORE THAN THE WORD ITSELF CAN EVER DEFINE” And thoda punishment toh banta hai na because it is not everyday that the guy who had been speaking against fairy tales,love,the concept of romance comes to you and freaking confesses that he loves you and bdw tumne toh sunna hi hoga “sabr ka phal mitha Hota hai” . Don’t worry you are gonna have your sweet fruit,soon.

    1. πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ
      Your comment is like – chance pe dance… Nandini nahi bol rahi, toh main bol deti hu… πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      Cutie you are… πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ€—πŸ€—

  49. Those insecurities creeping in is such a real thing. The wait and silence eats away at the relationship before you know it. Any kind of relationship. Loved how you’ve included it here.
