Continuation from Episode 13:
Gauri is watching a unconscious Anika standing outside the cabin.She has tears in her eyes.Gauri says in her mind-
“What all has been happening with you di?I can’t believe you are lying on the hospital bed like that,fighting for your life.I have told lie to Mom that you are fine.Don’t know what she would do after knowing everything.Dad is not saying anything but I can read his eyes.If anyone is most worried and hurt then it’s Dad.He won’t say a single word and this is killing him from inside.Sahil starts crying at the mention of your very name.We are managing somehow but poor Sahil,we can’t even console him properly.With you gone,our smiles have turned into tears di.You are the reason of our smile,happiness.Until you become okay,nothing is going to be normal,ever……”Gauri bursts into tears.Shakti is seen consoling her.Omkara reaches in hurried step where Gauri is.He spots her crying.Suddenly Shakt’s phone rings and he leaves to take the call saying Om to stay with Gauri.Gauri sits in one of the chairs of cabin corridor.Walking slowly,Om goes and sits beside Gauri.Before Om can tell anything she says-
Gauri:My Anika di has done nothing,she caused no harm to anyone still God is punishing her,Why?
Omkara:I know nothing can console you right now still I would say-You need to stop crying.Anika won’t like it if she gets to know that her sister is crying like that.Gauri stops crying and looks at Om-
Gauri:Sorry,I can’t recognize you.Do we know each other?
Omkara:Yes,I am Omkara Singh Oberoi.With me you have talked over phone.Remember?
Gauri:I lied to Mom and Dad to come here.You don’t know what all happened yesterday when Mr.Oberoi,your brother brought di back.Dad….She could not finish.
Omkara:I know what happened.Shivaay told me everything.Gauri starts crying again-
Gauri:I could not stop di.If I could then all these would not have happened.Seeing Gauri like that,Om starts feeling sad.He says-
Omkara:You have to be strong.You can’t fall weak at this moment.We have to maintain patience,for Anika.So plz stop crying.I am requesting you.
Gauri:I am not crying-wiping her tears.
Omkara says bringing a subtle smile in his lips-
“Aansu ko bahot samjhaya
Tanhai me aaya karo,
Mehfil me hamara
Mazak na udaya karo,
Ispar aansu tadapkar bola
Itne logo me aapko tanha paate hai,
Isliye chale aate hai!”
Hearing Omkara’s shayari(couplet),Gauri smiles.
Gauri:Are you also in some pain?Omkara feels nervous.He is hesitating to tell anything.Gauri says-
Gauri:Sorry,I should not have told like that.You recited very well by the way.
Omkara:It’s okay.But thank God that you are not crying.
Shivaay comes and joins them.He inquires about Anika.36 more hours to go.Shivaay enters into the cabin with the roses he has bought.He puts them near Anika’s head on the bed.Nurse is checking the monitors and noting the necessary detail on paper.Om and Gauri are watching him standing outside.Shivaay sits on the bed.He says in his mind-
“I am waiting desperately for you to open eyes.How long will you sleep?I can’t wait any longer.It’s been long since I talked to you,heard your voice.Your silence is becoming unbearable for me don’t know why.Just get up breaking the silence.I want to talk to you,laugh with you.Until you open your eyes,I can’t do all these.Plz hear me once….”Shivaay gets emotional.He comes out of the cabin.
There Shakti comes and tells that he has to leave urgently as a very important business meeting has come up suddenly.He leaves making ShivOm in charge of everything.Also saying that he will return as soon as possible.After Shakti’s departure ShivOm and Gauri start talking among themselves.They look through the cabin wall and watches Anika.Then Shivaay tells Gauri-
Shivaay:I understand your feelings and what you are feeling right now.It’s not the right time to ask still,can you tell me what is the reason behind Mr.Trivedi’s so much anger on Anika?What has happened and how?I want to know everything if you don’t have any problem.Shivaay sounds serious.Gauri looks at him at first then looks down.
Shivaay:Sorry,I don’t want to force you as it is your family matter…
Gauri:No,no.Nothing like that.I am ready to tell everything.Actually,all these started one year ago when di went abroad to pursue her MS,in London.Then……Before she can tell any further stops hearing nurse’s shouting for doctor as Anika is gaining consciousness.Doctor rushes in as well as ShivOm and Gauri.Doctor removes her oxygen mask and starts checking.Anika is opening her eyes very slowly.Everyone looks happy.Doctor says finishing checking-
Doctor:Patient is out of danger,completely.Looking at Shivaay-Your wife got her consciousness back on a short span of time than we normally expected Mr.Oberoi.It’s a very good sign.You can relax now.Your love and prayers have not gone unanswered.We will take care of the rest once we get the report.And most importantly,don’t give her any kind of stress or speak to her anything which will make her restless.It’s not good at all for her condition.Take care.Doctor leaves leaving Shivaay,Omkara,Gauri in utter shock.Anika hears everything lying on the bed.Three of them-ShivOm and Gauri look at each other then Anika!
