the next day:
gauri was serving breakfast along with anika though the entire family told gauri not to work, gauri is stubborn and decided to work.
ranveer: arre gauri Bhabhi, how did you know that I liked Channa dal paratha ?
gauri: bass aisi.
ranveer: om bro, your wife has some magic power.
om: yes she does. when we first met, she knew that I liked kheer and I haven’t even told her that.
gauri: because I saw you eating kheer at a stall once.
om: oh! now I know.
as ranveer took a bite of the paratha, his eyes teared up.
ranveer in mind: it tastes like didi’s food. strange! only didi can make my favourite food delicious. how did gauri Bhabhi even knew my favourite food and make it taste like didi’s paratha?
gauri: what happened gudd….ranveer?
ranveer: kuch nahi. just really nice.
prinku: and when I make him his favourtie food, he complains like ‘Priyanka! I don’t like this!’
all laugh. just then gauri dropped the plate clutching her stomach.
ranveer: what happened didi?
all became more shocked listening to ranvver call gauri ‘didi’. gauri’s eyes teared up.
gauri: bass bacha kicked really hard.
shivay: probably trying to tell her that ‘mummy, no more work. rest now’
anika: relax gauri, me, prinku and somu will pick up this. you sit.
gauri nods and sits next to om.
om: by the way ranveer, why did you call gauri ‘didi’?
ranveer: to be honest I don’t know why. it’s just when I was little, whenever my older sister was in pain, I would be really worried and when gauri Bhabhi screamed, I got scared and called her didi.
gauri: you can call me ‘didi’. I remember my little brother would be the first one worried for me when I was in pain. you have all rights to call me didi.
sweety (shivika’s daughter): anyway let’s leave all that. so me and binkle came up with an idea to go on a train ride.
binkle (rikara’s daughter): and celebrate Raksha bandan in Hyderabad.
sweety: and dad already paid for it. me and binkle did all the packing!
binkle: so we leave at 1!
dadi: wow bhoot accha idea.
aastha: yes it will be so much fun.
prinku: and celebrating Raksha bandan there is perfect.
ranveer and gauri were shocked hearing this.
but why were they shocked??
later that day:
gauri: I am not going.
om: and why is that?
gauri: because it involves a train and I don’t want to go to Hyderabad.
om: that’s not a good explanation. stop behaving like a two year old.
gauri: but I don’t want to go. OUCH! (she clutched her stomach) see even this child agrees with me!
om: hahaha very funny. it is disagreeing with you hence it kicked you.
gauri: please don’t make me go.
om: then we won’t see race 3.
gauri: fine i’ll go.
om: good chiraya.
he pinches her nose and kisses her baby bump.
ranveer coughing: prinku, I can’t go on the trip (cough cough) I am having such a bad cold.
prinku: just a minute ago, you were fine.
ranveer: but still, temperate check karo.
prinku keeps her hand on his forehead and says: ranveer, go to acting school and they will teach you proper acting!
prinku: no buts or ifs. you are going on that trip.
ranveer: prinku, I don’t like trains and I know that gauri didi won’t be going. so someone has to stay here to help look after her and her baby.
prinku: mera om bhaiya knows how to handle tera gauri didi. mark my words she will be coming.
ranveer: accha fine na but I don’t want to.
prinku: then you can clean shubh’s diaper for the next year!
ranveer: fine. I’ll go. it’s always my pain, your gain!
prinku: and that’s the way it will be forever patiji.
as ranveer and gauri entered the train, they felt weird. just then they heard the scream once again….
