CHAPTER 27: FEAR(OF THE UNKNOWN)
SCENE 1: Vansh refuses to attend his father’s death anniversary…
Vansh: Riddhima, please don’t start again..*he was about to walk away*
Riddhima: Vansh, please don’t walk away, if you walk away every time, then how will we solve the problems, if we sit and talk then i can get your point of view and you can get mine!
Vansh: *sits* Fine then, let’s talk!
Riddhima: Why don’t you want to attend his puja?
Vansh: Like i told, he cheated on my mother and married another woman and not to forget he has a son who happens to be kabir! Do i need it to be more elaborate?
Riddhima: Ok fine, he cheated on your mother, but he loved you equally! He made you what you are now! He shaped you into this individual! Atleast he deserves this, your heart deserves a perfect goodbye from him! Just attend this one time, and give him a proper send off and try forgiving him! and now i will not force, you can join if you want, i have work so i will leave..
SCENE 2: Riddhima is talking with Dadi..
Riddhima: Dadi, i have arranged everything, don’t worry!
Dadi: Good, then i will call Chanchal and Rudra for the puja..
Vansh: No dadi, this time me and riddhima will do the puja..
Both riddhima and Dadi are shocked..
Dadi: But Vansh are you okay with it? And why so suddenly?
Vansh: Someone told me, we have to Forgive our loved ones, so just following that..
Dadi: Then fine, come and sit…
They do the puja and Riddhima is in her room, when her phone rings..
Kabir: Hey, riddhima this is kabir…
Riddhima: yeah, tell me kabir…
Kabir: Are you free today?
Riddhima: Yes, why is everything alright?
Kabir: I needed someone’s help actually, if you are not free, then i will call someone else..
Riddhima: can you stop with the formality? And tell me what did you want?
Kabir: I am in Apollo hospital..
Riddhima: Hospital? Is everything alright? Are you ok?
Kabir: I am fine, it’s my mom riddhima, *she hears him crying*
Riddhima: Kabir, calm down, everything will be fine, i am on my way, don’t worry..
She cuts the call, and vansh comes to the room…
Vansh: What happened? Why are you so tensed?
Riddhima’s pov: He will get angry again, if i say that Kabir called…
Riddhima: My friend’s mother is in hospital, she needs me, so can i go?!
Vansh: Riddhima, never ask my permission, go and call me when you want me to pick you up, so that we can go to the orphanage, shall i drop you now?
Riddhima: No! I mean you must have work right, i will manage don’t worry, i will call you to pick me up!
Vansh: *calls rudra* Any improvement? Why the hell is he not recovering! Shift him to the hospital for a few days…yeah right now! I will be there in 2 hours! Don’t delay anymore, get the tests done, and tell me then! *cuts the call*
Vansh’s pov: Why do i feel restless, as if something is going to happen!
Dadi: Vansh? What happened? You look tensed…
Vansh: Nothing, i was just feeling restless, as if something bad is going to happen…
Dadi: Don’t worry, i feel like everything is falling into place in your life, i guess riddhima was the best thing that happened in your life, since she has come everything is happening good…
Vansh’s pov: I don’t know about that dadi, she is pretending to be something she is not! She is hiding something, and am already working on finding it out..
Vansh: I guess dadi, anyway i have work i will leave..

Nurse: Sorry sir, he is busy in a operation..
Vansh: Fine, what about Dr. Varsha?
Nurse: She just went to join him sir…but sir you can meet the patient, they told me that you will come to meet the patient..
Riddima’s pov: So Vansh didn’t come here for me, he has come here to meet a patient? Wait! Even Varsha, mentioned to me about a patient! But who has he come to meet?
She follows him, but someone stops her..
A guard: Sorry mam, you can’t go inside, this area is strictly restricted!
A guard: Sorry mam, this is a private area, no one is allowed!
Riddhima leaves and sees varsha…
