karan woke up the next morning to see naina sleeping on the floor beside him. karan felt horrible that because of him, she had to sleep like that.
karan: naina, wake up.
naina: karan, are you okay? do you need the cream?
karan: naina i’m fine. you slept on the floor, are you okay?
naina had a headache because she didn’t get proper sleep but lied instead.
naina: i’m okay karan.
meghna came in.
meghna: karan, are you okay?
karan: yes, bhabhi. i wasn’t too well last night but naina took care of me.
meghna: well, she’s your wife. naina, are you okay? you don’t look so good.
naina: yeah, i’m okay di.
nirmala then came in to remind them that they were getting late for work.
nirmala: meghna, naina, you’re getting late for work. naina, you’re not even ready yet?
naina: ma, i’m not going to work.
meghna: why not?
naina: karan could have pain from the medicine any time, di. besides, i can work from home as well.
karan: naina, you should go to work. i’ll be fine, don’t worry.
nirmala: karan is right, naina. i’m here and if anything happens i’ll take care of him.
naina: okay ma.
naina explained karan’s medicines to nirmala and went to shower and get ready for the office.

naina: ma if there’s anything you need, please call me. karan, you too.
nirmala: naina, i will take care of everything. now go.
naina went to work and couldn’t concentrate all day. rohit realised this and it became more obvious when naina almost signed a deal that would not make profit but instead lose a lot of money for the company. naina’s never made any mistake in the business and there had to be something seriously wrong that she almost made such a big mistake. it was karan. naina was worried for him. she didn’t know what was going on and if he was okay or not. when naina went home, all of them, except karan, was eating dinner. naina joined in.
nk: how was work?
later in her room, karan noticed something was wrong.
karan: naina, are you okay? is everything alright?
naina: yes, everything is okay.
karan: naina, sit down.
naina: karan, i don’t have time for this.
karan: naina, sit.
naina sat down.
karan: now, tell me what’s wrong.
naina: i almost signed a deal that wasn’t supposed to be done that would’ve costed the company millions. i’ve never made a mistake but i almost did today, karan.
karan: what happened?
naina: i couldn’t concentrate.
karan: why not?
naina: because i was worried for you. all day i kept thinking that the medicines might affect you or you might need something. it was killing me.
karan: naina, i was okay.
naina: i know karan but i couldn’t stop worrying. i can’t go to work knowing that you might be in pain or you need your cream or something else is wrong. i can go a few hours when needed to work but i don’t think i can go everyday for the next three months. i’ll just make me feel better if i’m here and i know how you are.
karan: but naina,
naina: karan, please don’t stop me. please let me be here.
karan: if it makes you happy then okay. but, if you ever want to go back or whenever you need to, you will. work comes first naina, not me.
naina wondered what a statement that was. naina could never put work before karan, forget karan, naina could never put anything before karan. the next morning at breakfast, naina told everyone what she decided.
naina: i’ve decided not to go to work until karan gets better. i’ll take care of everything from home and if needed, then i’ll go to the office.
nirmala: you’re worried about karan, aren’t you?
nk: whatever makes you happy, naina.
later on, rohit came and discussed a few projects with naina in the hall when she heard her name.
rohit: so, that’s basically what we need before we can go ahead.
naina: okay, i need the shipping quotes as well.
naina ran to the room to see karan in pain.
karan: naina, it hurts a lot. please help.
naina: karan, take off your shirt.
naina put the cream on karan while he winced in pain. rohit saw all of this from afar and left. rohit couldn’t see any of this happening, he was heartbroken because for the first time ever, he saw his life slipping away – naina.
