Anika goes back to her room. She closed her room and locked her room. Then she jumped in onto the bed and blushed while remembering the kiss.
A: Shiv kissed me? Oh My! Is it true? Did he understand his feelings for me?
She rolled onto the side where he usually sleeps. It’s been days they were sleeping together and the only barrier was their pillow wall which was indeed her idea. She got it from films. Today, it felt like feeling him on this side. It’s something beautiful for her. She remembered those days when she follow him just to see his face.
All those thoughts were broken by the knocks on the door. She went and opened the door. It was her dad. She went and hugged him.
H: How’s my daughter?
A: I am fine, dad.
H: Your mom’s being rude, rt? She will be ok.
A: I am used to it. Anyway, how’s Sahil?
H: He’s fine, with school, classes. He’s doing well.
A: That’s good!
H: I don’t know why your’e reacting as if nothing happened. We forced your marriage without your permission, and your reaction…
A: Dad, it’s ok. Let’s forget about it.(smiles)
They both move to the hall. Ani gave them tea and some snacks. In between, she called Shivaay. But the call was unavailable. She was surfing on social media and chatting on with her friends. Pinky, in between, asked Anika to bring her phone. Anika was about to go when she received a message.
SHIVAAY SINGH OBEROI, THE YOUNGEST SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS TYCOON’S CAR HAS BEEN FOUND CRASHED INTO A TREE. THERE IS NO CHANCE OF SURVIVAL. THE CAR HAS BLAST INTO FLAMES, IN SUCH A WAY THAT NO RESCUE CAN TAKE PLACE.
Anika gets shocked and falls down on her knees.
A: Shivaaaaaay………………………….This can’t happen.
She again tries to call him. But the response is the same.
P: What happened, Ani?
A: Mom, Shiv…(she hands over the phone)
P: This can’t happen, I will switch on the T.V. and check.
They switch on the T.V. and check the news channel. The news channel were on fire with the news. Soon, the whole family including Ani’s parents came to know the so-called truth. Suddenly, she receives a message.
NO BODY HAS BEEN FOUND TILL NOW. CHANCES OF BEING ALIVE FOR HIM IS 0.9% AS THERE IS A FOREST NEARBY WHICH IS ALSO BEEN SURROUNDED BY FEROCIOUS ANIMALS.
Anika couldn’t believe what was happening between her. There were days which she was waiting to receive his love. Even though, she didn’t expect it, she was sure that her love is true and one day she will get it back. But now, when she got it back, his chances of survival is unknown. Her love left…No, that can’t happen, he will come back. Suddenly, one of the silent villain burst her real character. No, it’s not Pinky, it’s her mom.
G: This is all because of her. Pinky, I told you, she is a patch of bad luck. It’s because of her, this is happening. I told you this girl is not good for your family. Your family would have been in good luck, if you got Shivaay marry Tia. She is now happily living with Dushyant. But what about Shivaay, just..
P: Shut up, Gayatri! Your words are going beyond the limit. Throw your bad thoughts on someone else, not on this girl. I got Anika to marry my Shivaay because I know she is the right person for him. I knew she loves him. She is the Lakshmi of this house. Do not raise your finger against her , even if she is your st..(she keeps her mouth shut)
G: This is all because of your culture, the clothes you wear, the way the girls in your house behave, and of course, all because of this girl’s(points at Anika) bad luck. She has been the reason for all this. After her marriage, we are sitting peacefully nowadays.
All this was heard by Anika silently, she was really shocked, and took whatever her mom said as the truth. She ran to her room and threw her dresses to the suitcase. At last, she moved her hand to remove the most precious thing which adorned in her neck which added the beauty to her, their mangalsutra. But something in her, stopped her, so she didn’t remove it. She at last took their wedding photo.
She went downstairs, where all are eager to get the miracle to happen. But there were some tension between them. She took the suitcase and went near the door, which allowed her entry and now the exit path which she took for herself.
P: (cries)Ani, pls don’t leave from here. I already lost my son, I don’t want to lose you too. Prove that you’re the one for Shivaay. Don’t lose over your so-called mom’s words.
A: Pinky Ma, I never lose for anyone, but sometimes she is also correct. I am always unlucky for Shivaay. This is all because of me. I don’t want to leave a mom and a family like this, but for the family’s peace, I have too.
O: Ani, this is ridiculous. How can you be like this?
A: The one who is responsible for her mother’s death, can also be responsible for this. (looks at her dad) Dad, do you think I never knew about Mom’s death? I knew it. I always thought God would give me back my mom. So, the next day, when I saw her(points at Gayatri), I thought I got her back. She was taking care of me like that, but now I understood that a mom’s position can never be replaced by another. I always believed her as my mom. So, never will I ever be patch of bad luck in both the families.
Harshvardhan was silent. The secret, he and Pinky was hiding was out. Anika walked out of the house. None could stop her, because she was determined.
TWO DAYS LATER:
Anika was moving towards the hospital. She had taken an appointment with the psychologist. In between, she felt like someone was following her. She turned, but no one was there. She is now far from Oberoi Mansion and her house. None of them knew her so close, except her psychologist, who was her best friend, Mallika. After the appointment, she went to the pharmacy to buy the pills described to her. She got inside the car and ordered the driver to move to her apartment she was living. She checked the bill. After the bill was kept inside her bag, she looked outside the window. Suddenly, she noticed the way taken was different.
A: Hey! Why are you taking through a different route?
D: (funny accent) This is shortcut, Mam
A: Go along the same route, no need of the shortcuts. How did your sound change?
D: I caught a cold, Mam.
A: This much, fast! Anyway, take this tablets. (She gave the tablets to him.)
(thinks)Why do I feel his touch so familiar, it reminds me of Shivaay..No, it’s not him, this maybe someone else.
When she looks out, she finds the car has gone past her building.
A: Hey! My apartment is here, why did you go that way?
D(turns)Ani, do you think I am not worth for your love. You left the house, but have you ever considered about me? What did I do to you?
A: (shocked)Shiv??? How did you reach here? Stop the car.
S: You have to hear what I have to say, you don’t know the whole situation.
A: Stop the car right now! If you don’t, I will jump out.
S: Ani, pls hear what I have to say
Anika opens the door and jumps out. Shivaay stops the car.
What happened after Anika left?
Don’t you feel this is dramatic??
Will Shivika unite?
