Saanchi woke up sunkissed . She did not find Kabir and got up . She quickly freshened up wearing a black saree to go to hospital. She went downstairs and say Kabir munching sandwiches. She gently sat down next to him .

Saanchi : Why didn’t you wake me up ?

Kabir : Because you need to take rest in this condition .

Saanchi : Kabir ! You should have woken me up, I would have made the breakfast . Why did you trouble Maa ?

Kabir : No , you should rest completely . No work from today …

Saanchi : Kabir is saying this … but what will I do when Mr.Khadoos asks me to work in the hospital ?

Kabir : Haven’t I told you that you are on leave from today ?

Saanchi : Leave ? No Kabir ! I want to go the hospital for duty . You know what ? I will get bored . In hospital I will be busy and time will pass eventually .

Kabir :But Saanchi ! I can’t take risk regarding your health . The work will give more strain and stress .

Saanchi : I don’t know anything about it  . I will go to the hospital and that’s final .

Kabir : Ok ! But take care ..

Saanchi : Kabir ! Why don’t we keep a puja as well as a party for SDCH staff? They will also get the news of my pregnancy .. What say ?

Kabir :Sure ! We will conduct the pooja on Sunday.By the way Have you told Maa about your pregnancy ?

Saanchi : Oh no ! I simply forgot to tell Maa .

Kabir : I was saying the same Maa ! But she didn’t listen … Don’t worry I will take care of her .

Kusum: Close the door when you go ,because I am going to tell everyone.

Kusum leaves . Kabir and Saanchi look at each other’s faces and laugh .

Saanchi : Shall we go now ?

Kabir : I think you didn’t have breakfast.

Saanchi : Ok ! I am going to eat that sandwich .

Kabir : No Saanchi! That’s oily .You take this Broccoli salad and Soy yoghurt.

Saanchi quickly ate making a awful face and they left for hospital .At the hospital Kabir continued his duty while Saanchi came across all the interns and staff. She invited them to the party . All asked the reason but they said it to be a surprise . Saanchi was in general ward checking her patients when she gets a message from kabir asking her to report him right now . She went to his cabin .

Kabir : Dr.Saanchi ! This is a serious and important surgery ,read the case . You will assist me in this surgery .

Saanchi : Ok sir !

She left the place. She sat in the cafetaria during the break and started reading the case file . She was busy in reading when Isha and Pragya sat accompanying her .

Pragya : Saanchi ! You know what happened today , because of that nonsense veer, I lost my favourite key chain

Isha : You know what ? Because of Dr. Adarsh, I was not able to go to the sale .

Saanchi : Isha ! Pragya ! I am really frustrated  . Please can we talk about this later , and I have to read this file also .

Pragya and Isha looked at each other’s faces because itbwas the first time when Saanchi didn’t want to listen to their talks .

Isha : Ok !

Saanchi : Pragya ! I’m feeling hungry and I feel like eating something sour and spicy .

Pragya : Sour ?

Isha : Spicy ?

Saanchi : Yes !

Both of them were shocked again as Saanchi didn’t like sour and spicy food . But this was the first time she felt like eating spicy food .They leave and after some time they come with chat . Saanchi grabs the plate and drools over the food . She finishes it and asks for other two plates which were also munched by her.

Then it was time for the operation . Both Saanchi and Kabir are in the operation threatre . They successfully did the operation.  Both came out of the threatre.

Kabir :Good Job Saanchi !

Saanchi :Thanks Dr. Kabir

Kabir :It’s break time .

Saanchi :I have to change , I’m going.

Just when Saanchi goes ,Isha and Pragya came running to kabir.

Isha : Jiju you know what ?

Pragya : Yes yaar ! Saanchi is unwell .

Kabir : What happened to her ?She was just right here

Isha narrates the whole story to Kabir . He understands that it may be her cravings and moodswings afterall she was pregnant .
He just gave a glare to them and went away . He was smiling all the way going to her . He went to her in her cabin (Saanchi is a senior doctor now ) with bananas and soy milk .

Kabir : May I come in Mam ?

Saanchi : Yes sure ! (She was busy in some files and didn’t notice  it was Kabir, she thought it would be some intern )

Saanchi looked up and gave a confused look when she had a large grin on her face.

Saanchi : Kabir !

Kabir : Saanchi ! Have these bananas and milk , and I came here to say that today Sonal ; my school friend is coming to our house . So, we have to leave early .
