Recap : A flashback is seen while Viplav and Dhanai was on a drive in his jeep, Viplav looking at a sad and thoughtful Dhaani : Dhaani was discharged and both finally come out of the hospital. He gives her to have hopes on her and to face the world when she keeps wiping her tears thinking about it. He then makes her attend her mother’s funeral, from far. Seeing the rituals’ process, Dhaani gets sentimental and prosperns in front of her mother’s laid body to let her feelings come out of her.
At the end, he promises to himself that he will take care of her happiness, as her “supporting pillar”.
Both reach a residing area when he slowly stops the vehicle and looks at Dhaani. The latter suddenly looks at the surroundings with a confused face and realizes she can recognize the place. She looks at Viplav.
Dhaani : Mr.Viplav, (looks at the outside) this is…
Viplav : Yes you are right. This is your friend Priya’s house !
Dhaani turns her head back towards Viplav and was waiting for some explanation.
Viplav : (teasing) I felt that you have been (indicating the meaning of “a bit” with his fingers) quite unfair with her, running away from the hospital yesterday and leaving her alone. (laughs)
Seeing him laughing, she shows an upset face expression and lowers her eyes. Viplav gets back to a serious mode and sighs deeply.
Viplav : Emmm.. (holds the steering wheel with his both hands) Finally, (looks straight) you’re back. Back home. (sighs and marks a pause) Your friend is waiting for you. I have told her everything.
Dhaani looks down.
Viplav : She wanted to meet you at that second but I told her I would bring you straightly here.
She wipes her tears.
Viplav : And now, I hope, you can finally get to live your life forgetting all those bad vibes. Your mother’s blessings are always with you, and they will always save you from everything.
Dhaani turns her head towards him surprised of his words and looks at him. She then faces her shoes again and decides to get out of his jeep when she gets stopped being pulled back. She turns back and notices her veil being stuck around the gear and not letting her go. She goes to take it off but Viplav gets faster in that. Slowly his hand brought to the piece of cloth, Dhaani takes off hers in reverse looking at him. He finally frees her and gives her the veil.
Viplav : Now it’s ok.
Dhaani holds that part of the veil in her hand and slowly turns her head towards Viplav.
Dhaani : Thanks.
She then gets down of his vehicle and walks to the entrance slowly. At each of her steps forwarding her to the house, he was feeling the gap increasing. That was like strange but hurting. He was fearing for her a lot. She was not alone, but still he knew he had to keep an eye on her security. She was quite important to his eyes now. Well… that’s what his heart, and fast heartbeats seeing her make him feel.
Dhaani was walking with a heavy heart. She was ashamed to face her own best friend. After all, she cowardly left her alone in the hospital, and she didn’t attend her own mother’s funeral. How was she going to ask for forgiveness ? Was she enough deserving ?
She finally steps in front of the door and, taking a deep breath, eyes closed, slowly forwards her arm towards the doorbell. The distance reducing, her face kept sweating her fear. Will the world accept her? What excuses should she give to Priya and all those who attended her mother’s last rituals ? Won’t they blame her for leaving her own mother dying like an orphan when the daughter was still alive ? She finally reaches the bell and rings her presence to the world. She then looks back and sees the jeep there. She suddenly falls on that gaze waiting to be reassured she was indeed under safe arms. Suddenly the door gets opened and lets Priya appear behind, who look at that figure confused.
Priya : Yes! Who is this?
Hearing that familiar voice, Dhaani, all by sudden, turns her head to look at her, those eyes filled with pain. Seeing her lost friend finally in front of her, Priya widely opens her eyes and mouth, and lets some tears fall down on the floor.
Priya : Dhaani!
She doesn’t hesitate to hug her dost tightly and tries to make her pain evaporate in the consoling embrace.
Priya : (sneers) Where were you gone yesterday ? Leaving me alone like this.
Dhaani was not even having courage to hug her back and closing her eyes, lets her tears cover her red cheeks.
Finally reassured of seeing Dhaani accompanied, Viplav shows a smile looking at them, and decides to go from there. He starts his jeep and, changing his gear, presses on the accelerator and drives.
The sound of the vehicle moving wakes up Dhaani and she suddenly gets off her friend’s grip to look behind her. He was indeed going away from there forever. She follows the vehicle with her eyes and was feeling desperate, as she didn’t get one opportunity to thank him for all what he did, starting from saving her life, to bringing her back to her apnon, and not leaving her alone like an orphan. Priya looks at her and then at the vehicle that was going and remembered about talking to Viplav.
Priya : (looks at the vehicle) Oh no! I completely forgot it. (looks at Dhaani) See! Meeting you after all these tensions, (looks at the jeep) I forgot about Viplavji (Dhaani is shown hearing her words and looking on the side) who saved you (Priya is shown looking at her) and brought you safe at home.
Dhaani looks at Viplav going so far from there, leaving her. He was indeed unknown to her but, 20 hours were enough to made her know about him and how gentle he was with her, and can be. And these hours passed along with him, though sad, made her get a new friend, someone she could really trust on. Not like that Krishna. (Dhaani closes her eyes) Oh no! Why his talk ?
Priya : Acha let’s go inside.
She holds her friend by her shoulders and takes her into the shelter.
Viplav, driving for more than 15 minutes, finally reaches home and stops his jeep in front of his house, in that spacious area maintaining a large distance between the main gate and their “Ayodya Nivas”. Yes that’s how it was called. Ayodya Nivas !
Once the engine of his jeep gets turned off, he goes to get down when something stops him moving. He suddenly looks on his left and notices something brightening on the black background under the passenger seat. He bends down to look at it and takes it in his hands. A small white color pearl!
Viplav : What is th…
Suddenly some pictures flash in his mind. Some pictures revealing the owner of it being Dhaani. Slowly, the flashback camera gets down to her ankles and exposes her anklets of pearl. Flashes turned off, Viplav is seen closing his eyes and sighing. He then opens them again to look at that pearl. He slowly gets close and holds it in between his index and thumb. He stares at it, a silent smile on his lips.
… : Viplav baba!
That old voice woke him up and he quickly puts that pearl in his jeans pocket. He then turns back and faces his dear grandfather.
Viplav : Dadaji! (hugs his grandfather)
Dadaji : (patting Viplav’s back) Betha, where were you for so long ? Your daadi and me were really worried.
Viplav gets off from his daadaji and looks at him.
Viplav : Daadaji actually…
Daadi : Leave him na ji. Poor boy! Let him freshen up first. (forwards her arm) Come betha!
He goes towards his Daadi and hugs her.
Viplav : I missed you Daadi.
Daadi : And we missed our grandson much more. (gets off his grip) Alright, go and freshen up, will warm up your dinner.
Viplav : Ok.
Precap – Viplav is at the temple, praying eyes closed, hands folded, when a smooth breeze disturbs him caressing his hair, and he opens his eyes. He looks at his Daadi who was still hands folded and praying. He gives a check around him. Suddenly he hears a sobbing voice.
Thanks for reading. Keep commenting and telling your views.
Ok basically I was really hesitating if I should post or not. It’s not that I mind having less comments, but I seriously feel the stories are getting boring and I feel not getting a good and honest response. But I will never force anyone to read my work, I just don’t like doing that. So you read or not, you guys are still my ViDha fandom people.
Thanks for reading once again.
With lots of love!
