More three hours left
Arjun filled the form and now sitting in front of the room. He is feeling guilty to talk with his father like that. But the guilt of not being able to take care of his little sister’s happiness, not to be with her when she was in a vicious situation to make this big step, is far big and not letting him breath for a minute.
Another scream came out from the room, making Arjun close his eyes in pain. The screams are coming inside of Geet’s throat, even when she is unconscious.
Tears welled up from Arjun’s close eye lids. His gudia is like his own daughter, who is the biggest part of his life. That small girl, who never even saw the shadow of pain and hurt, is now on the room, screaming in pain. And he can’t even do anything apart from sitting here and wait for the doctor.
He wiped the tears and hides his face on his palm and sighed heavily. He has had enough. Now Geet herself will decide what she wants. And he will not let his father to step into her path. Not this time.
Yes he is guilty for talking with his father this way. He shouldn’t do it. And he will seek the forgiveness for his words, but he also had to show his father the reality, the reality that his father did not understand in his possessiveness of saving his daughter from the pain he once felt years ago.
Meanwhile in the small mandir in hospital:
Mohindar is praying for his daughter’s wellbeing when he feels someone’s hand on his shoulder. Turning around he saw Ria sitting near him.
Ria: please don’t feel bad on Arjun’s words papa. He’s just worried for Geet
Mohindar: I know beta. I do understand his feelings. And may be somewhere I deserved all those words
Ria: Papa, can I say you something?
Ria: I know you were just trying to protect our Geet, but maybe we should not be so hard on her. We could take information from others about Maan. Like how he is with people, how’s his personal life, did anyone heard any mishap about him related with girls. You know?
Mohindar: I did a big sin Ria, and I know today Geet is here only because of me
Ria: but papa, she was happy today. She was actually thinking forward to have a talk with you. When I was leaving she was actually talking positively. I never thought she would take any drastic step like this. I would not leave her today. It’s also my fault.
Mohindar: no you are not in any fault. It’s all because of me. I told her that I was wrong by accepting your mother’s decision when she told me to choose Geet over her. Or else I would never lose my your mother in law over a daughter like her
Ria looked shockly at him
Mohindar: I lost my daughter. The girl who always used to tell me that no can harm her because she’s her papa’s princess, is now on the OT harmed by her own father
Mohindar chocked and let his tears fall down from his eyes. Only he knew how he’s feeling. His only daughter is fighting for his life and he is the reason of all these is killing him within
Ria can’t able to talk for some minutes. She keeps thinking how Arjun will react after hearing that. Because this is the only reason for which Geet took this big step. Geet’s that latter can make her understand in how much pain she was while writing that. But it’s already done. She should not let this issue stress any more
What you said is already said. You will not tell anyone what you said to Geet – Ria said softly
Ria: I know you never meant it, you can never mean this. Because we all know how much important she is for all of us. So let’s pray that she will be fine and forget whatever happened in these days.
Something is not meant to come out. Let them hide for the betterment of every relations – she thought to herself
Near the OT:
Arjun hear the sound of someone approaching.
Arjun: now what do you want? Don’t you think you actually ruined much enough? Now let my sister live in peace.
Pinky: bhaia please let him meet Geet for one time, please?
Arjun look up hearing Pinky’s voice. He thought it’s his father. But whom he sees make him guiltier.
Maan is standing there folding his hand together in front of him. And Pinky is standing behind Maan.
Maan: just for once, please let me go inside. I just want to stay with her for once bhaia, please.
Maan pleads while his face is showing the pain he is bearing within him
Arjun sighed. How can he stop Maan not to meet with Geet. He doesn’t have that strength.
Arjun: she’s still in OT. Doctors are washing her stomach to take out those medicines.
Maan looked at the OT door while Pinky squeezes his hand in assurance of Geet’s safety.
Arjun: and sorry Maan. Those words were not meant for you. I thought it was papa.
Maan only nods and go to the OT door, trying hard to show one glance if his jaan. Arjun can see the restlessness and turmoil running inside him
Two hours left:
As soon as the OT door opens, Arjun rushed there. Maan is already standing there, on that same position from last 3 hours.
Doctor: she is out of danger now. We washed her stomach and did some tests which are showing that nothing is there in her blood. Just make sure when she will be in her sense, don’t let her talk that much. It will be painful for her because of the sour throat. She will be moved on a cabin now. So you all can meet with her. But only one in once as many voices will wake her. Let her sleep
Arjun: thanks a lot doctor.
Doctor: you welcome. And yes can you come with me? You need to complete some formalities regarding the cabin and operation
Arjun: sure doctor
Arjun looks at Maan and said
Arjun: you go and stay with her. I’m going with the doctor
Maan look at him totally shocked
I trust you – Arjun smile a little at him and go with the doctor
Soon Geet is shifted in a two bed cabin. Ria came and help the sister to change her dress and to make her sleep in a comfortable position. And now only Maan is sitting beside her, holding her hand, waiting for his jaan to open her eyes and to let him take his breath out as because from last seven hours he is living like a dead soul.
At around mid-4am,
Geet opened her eyes, but stopped again for the light that was not letting her open her eyes. She heard some whispering something, then someone holding her hand, someone caressing her hair.
She somehow opened her eyes to see the doctor coming inside along with a sister. She looked around and whom she saw made her focus on that particular person only.
Doctor checked her and told her that she can stay this night and can leave the next day and instructed her to take complete bed rest and liquid foods.
All the time Geet was keep looking at Maan. It’s like everything around her turned completely blur
Arjun left with the doctor to talk, while Ria thought to give them some time alone and left with Pinky.
Maan came near her bed while Geet keep looking at him; she was not even blinking what if he would disappear.
Maan quietly sat on a chair in front of her.
Geet: naraz ho?
Maan: don’t talk with me
Geet: this much angry?
Maan: how could you do this? You never even thought once about me? Never even thought how will I live with a thought that my life left me
Geet: I’m sorry, how would I saw you going away from me. Its better
Maan: wait till you are ok. I will take you in a terrace and jump down. Then you will understand what I felt in all these hours
Maan: now stop smiling
Geet tried to say something and coughed. At the same time chocked in throat pain
Maan: sshhh. Don’t talk. No need to talk. You rest now.
Geet: no, you will go away then
Maan: I have to go jaan
Geet: but stay tills the morning, please
Maan: I will be here, just right after you. Now sleep jaan
Geet: promise you will not go away when I will sleep
Maan: I promise I will be here and you will find me here when you will open your eyes after your sleep
Geet clenched his one hand and tucked it inside of her face and closed her eyes. Maan pecked her forehead and soon she went into deep slumber.
Pinky: Geet now get up, we need to hurry up. Only half hour left to start his first performance.
