She woke up that day with a smile as she saw herself in his arms. She was happy that he understood her. But little did she know that he knows everything about her past.
She gets up and goes to have a bath. He slowly wakes up, but he didn’t open his eyes. He is always like that he opens his eyes only after 5-10 minutes. He then hears the sound of the bathroom door opening and then acts as if he is sleep.
She looks at him and thinking he was sleeping, she goes to make coffee. As he heard the sound of the door closing, he gets up and runs into the bathroom.
Meanwhile, she comes with the coffee to see the bed empty. She then keeps the coffee on the table and gets out. He then comes out of the bathroom and checks if she is looking and drinks the coffee and then thinks, “Perfect!”. Then an idea strikes him and he speaks a little bit louder, “Such a tasteless coffee. I am going to throw it through the drain.” and he acts like throwing coffee out.
Annika, who hears it, comes out of her hiding place, smiles and says, “The cup is empty.” She then giggles. He looked at her angrily.
She then pouts and says cutely, “Don’t glare at me angrily, I will d…”.
He cuts off her and says,Don’t even speak of death. You don’t even know what happened to me at that time. I was and am regretting each word I was saying to you till the past two days.That moment when you fainted into my arms, seeing your lips pale, the dark circles on your eyes which I failed to notice due to my stupid anger, the scars which you hid with your long sleeves….It literally scared me.”
He starts crying and continues, “The moment I never wished, came into reality. I didn’t know what was happening. I don’t know what was inside me, is it the fear of losing you or losing myself. Ani, promise me whatsoever happens, don’t leave me and go. I don’t want to lose you. You’re my family. If you’re angry with me or sad because of me, then slap me, hit me, shout at me, do whatever you want, but never try to hurt yourself again. I can’t see you like that anymore. Those 12 hours, seeing you like a silent sick bird, made me hurt here, it was like 12 years. You don’t deserve me, you deserve someone better. Someone, who looks after you better than me, and I am saying the person who gets you is the luckiest man in the world. I literally am not worthy enough to get your love. Don’t think you will hurt me, if you leave me for your happiness. If you’re happy with someone, then that is enough for me.”
He then opens the cupboard, and takes out some papers, “I took these papers thinking that you’re nothing as compared to me. But I was wrong, I am nothing in front of you. Sign these papers, leave me and be happy with someone else. I am sure; I will never regret, instead I will be happy seeing that you’re happy.”
She takes those papers from him and finds out that they were divorce papers. Tears which she was trying to hold on poured out, but then also she controlled and says, “You know you’re Idiot Singh Oberoi. I was thinking of starting a new life with my husband. You know I decided even the name of our kids. You know I thought to name them – Ansh, Shivika, Vansh, Vanshika, Shivansh, Shan, Anshika, Anshi….And you, idiot, is trying to taking my husband and my love away.”
Tears started flowing out of her eyes, like water flying out of tap, but she continues, “If I wanted to leave you, then what should I do with the love I had for you? Answer, Mr. Oberoi! Tell me, if this is what you have to say, why did you love me? If anyone asked the reason why I loved you, I can’t even explain what the reasons are, because it is even deeper. Leaving you is like…..No! Don’t leave me, I really love you. It’s not that I deserve you or you deserve someone better or not, it is whether we love each other or not.”
Shivaay, like a fool, again says, “Ani, please understand what I meant. It’s not because of you, it’s because of me. You are already pained by the wounds of childhood and I am causing wounds to pain for you.”
Annika got angry and caught him by collars, “You know, you don’t have to leave me, stay and heal me with your love.”
Shivaay looks at her and hugs her tightly. She too reciprocates. Then he suddenly leaves and smiles naughtily, saying, “Wait, what were the names you were telling me? Ansh, Shivika, Vansh, Vanshika, Shivansh, Shan, Anshika, Anshi…then….I never knew you were this naughty. How much kids do you need? I will help you.”
He winks and she blushes. He goes to kiss her, but she runs away from the room.
