Continuation from Episode 6:
Trivedi Villa is shown,shining in its all glory.
Shivaay:Your destination.Welcome home Anika!
Shivaay’s car enter trough the huge gate of Trivedi Villa.It passes two watchmen who salute.Car is moving ahead in between a long row of small bushes with garden both the side.Car stops coming at the main entrance.Shivaay and Anika get down the car.They are looking around.
Shivaay:Finally I am here with you.If I were a guest to your family,you would have welcomed me inside but now I have to do it for myself and for you too.He laughs.Anika is looking confused.
Shivaay:Come Anika,let’s go inside.Shivaay is about to move but Anika stops him by grabbing his hand from behind.Shivaay turns-
Shivaay:What…Without letting him finish,Anika jumps into Shivaay’s arms!He gets awestruck at Anika.Anika has hold him so tightly that Shivaay bends backward because of the force of the hug!He hugs her immediately and asks-
Shivaay:Anika!What happened?Are you feeling unwell?Plz tell something.I am getting worried.Surprising Shivaay more,Anika starts crying.Now he is hell shocked.Freeing himself from Anika’s embrace Shivaay says-
Shivaay:Stop,just stop crying.Wiping her tears-What is it Anika?Cupping her cheeks-Look at me!Anika nods in negative.He makes her look at him by holding her chin.Slowly Anika looks at Shivaay-
Shivaay:Now tell me,what is bothering you,why are you crying?
Anika:I,I don’t know.I am feeling like something is not okay.Feeling like my heart is in so much pain which is getting unbearable for me.A weird kind of pain!I did not want to cry,trust me.But Shivaay I just could not help but crying.Can’t even explain for what I broke down like that.Don’t know what has happened to me.
Shivaay himself was struggling with his own complicated emotions of separating from Anika but seeing Anika’s condition and listening to her words,he becomes more miserable than before.Still handling himself somehow he tells-
Shivaay:I thought you would bid me farewell with a smiling face but no,you are crying.You should be happy that your wait is over and here you are standing,in front of your house.You should celebrate this beautiful fortunate moment…Anika turns her back on Shivaay.
Shivaay:Did I say something wrong?Are you hurt Anika?She turns to Shivaay-
Anika:No,you can’t hurt me which I know for sure.You can only make me smile,can be the reason of my happiness but not the otherwise.Those tear drops are the result of my own faltered emotions.Shivaay tries to say something instead Anika holds his hand and says-
Anika:You don’t worry a bit.I am fine and strong enough to handle everything,fight anything.And that is what you have taught me right?So,I will be a strong girl.She smiles.Shivaay forced a smile too.
Shivaay:You have to promise me that no matter what happens,you won’t cry.Never ever in your life.Pinky Promise?Anika with a crying yet smiling face entangles her pinky with Shivaay’s already forwarded pinky finger and says-
Shivaay:Very good.Shall we go inside now?I can’t wait to meet your family.He seems all excited.While stepping in stairs-
Anika:I wanted to ask you something since long.Can I?
Shivaay:Yes of course.
Anika:Will you miss me?
Shivaay stops instantly.Coming back to Anika who is right behind him,he gives her very subtle yet keen painful look!At that very moment Shivaay wants to tell so much but words are stuck somewhere in his throat.How simple is the sentence to tell that-“Yes,I will miss you Anika”.But in reality,words are lost to utter this simple,easy sentence.Seeing Shivaay silent Anika feels hurt!She tries to look into his eyes but Shivaay looks away.Anika is going to tell something but door gets opened and family members start pouring in.Anika’s Mom,Vasundhara Trivedi,Gauri,Sahil and many more are cheering happily finding Anika.Shivaay drifts away from Anika due to the crowd of family members.They starts questioning Anika one after another.Hugging,kissing forehead,caressing are going on simultaneously.But Anika is feeling suffocated and shrieking inside watching and getting so much rush of love on her.She tries to go to Shivaay but her path towards him is blocked by the family members.Shivaay realizes Anika’s uncomfortable state hence comes to her rescue.Managing the crowd he reaches out to Anika.Shielding her from the attacks of love he says-
Shivaay:Excuse me everyone plz listen to me.Anika is not used to all these so plz I am requsting you all to calm down.Everyone presents there stops.Gauri says-
Gauri:Mom,why di is not saying anything?What happened to her?As Shivaay recognizes Anika’s mother he tells her-
Shivaay:Mrs.Trivedi your daughter is here and she is safe and sound.But plz don’t make her feel stressed up as it’s not good for her.I hope you can understand.
Mrs.Trivedi:Dear,you don’t know how worried we were for our Anika.God is merciful that He sent you to protect my Anika and bring her home.I don’t have words to thank you.She cries.
Shivaay:Plz don’t say like that.It was my responsibility.But can I have some moment with you in private plz?I want to tell you few things.
Mrs.Trivedi:Sure dear.Oh!How mad I am!Forgot that you are our guest still have not asked you to come inside.Come dear,come with me.
Shivaay:If you don’t mind then I want to take away Anika with us.
Mrs.Trivedi:As you say dear.Anika,Shivaay along with everyone enters into the Villa.Shivaay and Anika follow Mrs.Trivedi to a separate room.They sit face to face while Anika sits next to Shivaay,clings to him.Anika’s Mom notices that!
