Nandini phone rang and she pickup the call.
"Nandu I am here where are you?" She had called him to Dhruv's house his parents were abroad for a business meeting.
"Just a minute babe I will be right there" she said hurrying outside.
Manik turned as he heard heels clicking he smiled as he saw her walk towards him. As always she looked gorgeous.
She kissed his cheek "hey love" he said she smiled at him "come on I want to show you something" she said dragging him inside.
"Close your eyes" she said
"What are you doing Nandini" Manik asked her suspiciously.
"Oh stop it it's not like I am going to show you a dead body"
"With you.......you never know" Nandini glared at him he simply grinned at her.
"Ok close your eyes." He sighed but did as he was told. She checked her watch it was 12 o clock. She opened the door to the backyard. She held Manik's hand and helped him walk.
"ok open your eyes" Nandini said excitedly smiling.
"What......oh my god!"
Nandini wrapped her arms around Manik's waist "Happy Birthday Manik Malhotra" she whispered to him kissing him at the corner of his mouth.
"Happy Birthday dude" Dhruv said
"Happy Birthday Manik" Aliya exclaimed happily.
Nandini looked up to see Manik's face as he hadn't said a word her smile dropped when she saw him crying.
"Why....what.....why are you crying Manik! Didn't you like the surprise I thought........" Manik hushed her by kissing her on the lips. Dhruv and Aliya hurried inside the house to get the food.
Manik pulled away Nandini wiped his tears.
"Why did you cry Manik?"
"I....I have never celebrated my birthday Nandini. The only person who wishes me on my birthday is my mom because she is the only one who knows I exist
No one cares that I exist" Manik said quietly.
"I promise Manik from this birthday onwards no matter who is there or not I will always wish you on your birthday. Because I am the most thankful that you exist." he gave her a bright smile hugging her.
"Are you guys done we still have to cut the cake" Aliya said peeking from the door.
"Yes we're are done bring the cake" Nandini said.
They cut the cake and then settled down to open the presents.
"Nandini so many gifts!"
"They are not mine these are from Dhruv and Aliya" Nandini shrugging her shoulders.
"Let me bring mine" Nandini said and got up going inside the house. Manik got busy opening his friends presents. He was excited to see what Nandini had got him.
"This is my present." he looked up to see Nandini holding a guitar. He blinked once twice staring at her in shock.
"How did you know I play guitar?"
"Remember we went to the mall I saw you looking at this guitar and the music instrument Store so I got it for you" she handed him the guitar. He ran his hands over them happiness surging through his body. He loved singing and playing guitar but his father hated it and said that it was a waste of time so he had stopped playing guitar 6 years ago.
"Follow your dreams Manik. Do what you want to do not what other's expect you to do" Nandini told Manik caressing his face. He gazed at her it was like she always understood what was going on in his mind.
"The movie has started guys" Dhruv said.
Nandini cuddled against Manik's chest he wrapped his arms around her kissing her forehead. He loved this life he didn't want to go back to his life ever again. He loved his life with Nandini in it.
