( Sayaam sits at the dining table. He looks at Krishna, who is serving food to everyone. )
Suhani: Sayaam what do you want to eat? There are so many dishes today as the all the women of the house have cooked.
Krishna: Aunty, i will serve him dont worry.
Sayaam: I will only eat what Krishna makes, ok.
Sharad: Whatever his wife makes for him would have been made with love, right?
( Sayaam looks at Krishna who avoids eye contact with him. )
Yuvaan: Baby also makes great food though.
( Sayaam laughs quietly. )
Sayaam: Wow Krishna this is really good. Yuvaan if you can praise your wife so much, so can I. Krishna you also eat.
Krishna: Im not hungry.
Suhani: Krishna, sit with us at least. Eat a little bit of something.
( Krishna sits next to Sayaam as it is the only free seat. Sayaam serves her some food. Everyone smiles at them. )
( Krishna and Sayaam exchange glances briefly. )
( All continue to eat. Krishna chokes on something that Baby has cooked. )
Sayaam: Krishna, are you ok? What happened?
( Sayaam gives her water. He helps her drink it. Everyone focuses on Krishna, while Baby removes the dish from the table. )
Krishna: Im fine. I dont feel well. Im going to my room.
( Krishna leaves. )
( Sayaam comes to their room shortly after and sees Krishna lying on the floor, unconscious. He shouts her name. )
Sayaam: Krishna! Krishna wake up!
( Suhani comes to the room. )
Suhani: What happened!? Krishna! Wake up Krishna! Wait ill call the doctor.
( All are gathered in Krishna and Sayaam’s room. They all watch as Krishna is still asleep. )
Doctor: She has been affected by some kind of poison. Dont worry its a mild case. She will be all right in a while.
Sayaam: Thank you doctor.
( The doctor leaves. )
Suhani: Krishna, wake up please.
( Suhani tries to wake her up. She holds Krishna’s hand. )
( Sayaam moves her hand. All look at him. )
Sayaam: Look, I dont know who did this to Krishna, but i intend to find out. Until Krishna wakes up, only i will be near her. I dont trust any of you at the moment.
Bhavna: Sayaam you cant do that. Thats my niece. You have no right to keep us away from her.
Sayaam: Im Krishna’s husband. Until she wakes up, i have all right to do whatever i want. Now go from here.
Suhani: But Sayaam…
Sayaam: I said go.
( Slowly all leave. )
( Its night and Krishna is still unconscious. Sayaam sits beside her and looks ahead, not at her face. He holds her hand. He talks, still without looking at her. )
Sayaam: Krishna, I know the doctor said you will wake soon. But if you leave me, i dont know what i will do. Krishna you are the only important person i have in my life right now.
( Krishna wakes up but doesnt say anything. She listens to Sayaam speak. )
Sayaam: I know I forced you to marry me. But the truth is i do care about you. To me, you are my everything. I love you Krishna.
( He kisses her hand. )
Sayaam: I love you Krishna.
( Krishna smiles. )
( Sayaam looks at her and she pretends to be asleep. )
( Krishna then opens her eyes. She smiles at Sayaam. )
( Sayaam helps her sit up. )
Sayaam: Are you ok?
Krishna: Yes. What happened to me?
Sayaam: You were poisoned by someone. Dont worry, whoever did it, I wont leave them.
( Sayaam clenches his fist. Krishna sees this and unclenches it. She holds his hand and leans on his shoulder. )
( Sayaam looks at her and they have an eyelock. )
