The next day Dadima announced that the pooja will be held in there ancestral temple just after sunset ..The whole family started the preparations for the engagement Mrinalini wasn't really enthusiastic about the engagement preparations , but she got orders from Dadima …Radhika had a gloomy face but she still participated in the arrangements …She was decorating the hall with beautiful flower garlands ..Birju was ordering the house holds to clean up the house ..Each time Radhika thought about his engagement she had tears in her eyes but kept herself strong ..Everyone tried to be happy but inside there heart they felt sadness , they all wanted Radhika to get married to Dev ….Dadima and Vaishali were making the phone calls ..vivek went out with his dad to the office for few hours , they had to meet some important people ..Dev made sure everything was going good , he saw Radhika cleaning up the temple area ..she tied her hair up like a pony tail with her duppata tied to the side ..glancing at the lord with sadness ….He smiles lightly not seeing the gloominess in her eyes ...Dev and Radhika bumped into each other few times and shared a light smile… .Each time she would face him her heart would turn weak so she tried to keep herself away as much as possible …
It was almost time to go to the temple everyone was getting ready to go to the temple ..Radhika was walking by the hallway and bumped into Mrinalini ..She was holding a beautiful rich green and red lengha with a beautiful duppata with lovely embroidery ..Radhika eyes beamed up seeing such beautiful work ..
R: wow!! Its so beautiful ..saying touching the lengha
Mrinalini smiled joyfully
M: You like it ???
R: What kind of question is that ..I love everything you design ..Its really beautiful Didi
Mrinalni holds Radhika wrist and pulls her in her room ..locking the door
R: What happened??
M: I showed this to Vishaka ..but she said she already had something to wear ..saying annoyed ..I took so much time to find something for her ..…Mrinlani was about so say something mean when she saw Radhika getting worried she smiled covering her anger towards Vishaka …..Radhika?? If you like it you can have it ..adding happily ..
R: Nahi nahi ..What will Dadima say ?? Asking nervously
M: dont worry Radhika they wont say Anything ..You said you liked it right?? So you could have it ..
Giving it to Radhika ..
M: radhika ….I think you said that its beautiful just to make me happy ..I'm sure you don't like it ..holding her head low sadly ..
R: Nahi aisa kuch nahi hai ..I really do think its beautiful …but if I wear this lengha ..the pundit will think I'm the girl who will get Married to Dev …trying to make Mrinalini understand
M: SO?? Its ok ..Its even better ! Adding happily
Radhika was shocked hearing this …
R: Yeh aap kehri hain Didi ??
M: Oh Comeon Radhika ..You know I don't want Vishaka to be me Devrani ..If you take her place I wont mind at all ..Adding excitedly..
Hearing this Radhika smiled shyly.. She wished the same but sadly it was impossible..
R: Didi ..Agar Vishaka ..
M: Radhika don't worry ..Main hoon na ! kuch koi nahi kahega …
Radhika took the lengha and saw it properly ..It was indeed very beautiful , Mrinalni saw Radhika smiling happily ..She really loved it !
M: Radhika ..I think the blouse it might be a little big for you ..Ill just go and make it your size ..
R: It looks fine to me…
M: I don't think so ..Your measurements aren't the same as Vishaka ..adding with a giggle
Radhika shakes her head seeing Mrinalini making fun of Vishaka
M: give me 5 minutes ill alter it …
Radhika nodded with a cute smile ..
After a while everyone were getting ready to go to the temple ..
Radhika tied up the red blouse that was exposing half of her back and a little region of her tummy , she wore the beautiful flowing lengha , she pinned the duppata on her shoulder securely covering her chest side to her tummy and tucking the edge of the duppatta in the back of her leghna making it look like a saree ..She made a nice braid wearing matching choriyaans with her payal , she didn't want to wear any extra jewellery especially when she wasn't the bride to be ..Radhika wanted to keep herself simple but her natural beauty made her look stunning with the beautiful colours she was wearing but there was something missing on her face ..she wasn't smiling if she smiled her beauty would be more attractive ..She had a gloomy face ..She took a deep sign trying to bring a smile on her face but her heart wasn't allowing her ..She wasn't ready to go downstairs she didn't know how will she hold her tears in the pooja ??.. She wiped her tears and got up walking downstairs . Dadima , Vaishali , mr.Purohit, Vivek and Birju were all ready ....They saw RAdhika coming down , she was looking very beautiful ..Dadima and Vaishali share a delightful smile they went to Radhika to praise her ..Unknowingly Radhika cheeks turned pink hearing them complementing her ..
Mr.Purohit blessed her he was feeling so sad that she wasn't the one that dev was going to marry .He was doing this for his sons happiness ..But he wished dearly that Radhika could become the Choti bahu of this house ..Radhika smiled lightly seeing Mr.Purohit caressing her head giving her his blessings ..
Vaishali took Radhika nazar off by putting surma from her eyes and putting it behind Radhika ear ..
She felt so touched by this , she remembered when Devki used to do this to her .
Vasihlai: Kahin tumhe nazaar nahi lag jaye ..adding sweetly ..
Everyone smiled along ..Mrinalini came down looking very nice in her designed Sari
she smiled happily seeing Radhika she felt proud of her work , Radhika made it looked amazing
M: Radhika the lengha looks so beautiful on you ..she said fixing Radhika dupptta ..
R: Aap bhi bohut achi lagri hain …she commented sweetly
M: who toh hai ! she said proudly yet teasing
Everyone were getting amused…
Dadima: Dev aur vishaka kahan reh gaya ??? Radhika beta go and get Dev ..
Dadima realise her eyes weren't beaming as did before and made her little worried
D: Kya hua Radhika?? Asking worriedly
R: kuch Nahi Dadima main theek hoon (Nothing dadima Im fine ) …she said assuring and went upstairs
Dadima was a little doubtful but believed her words ..
Radhika knocked on Dev door suddenly she felt a firm hand sound her wrist pulling her inside the room ..Radhika didn't even have time to breath , she felt herself stuck on the wall ..Her eyes went wild seeing Dev so close to her again wearing his white tee with black shorts ..She swallows uneasily with her breathing becoming uneven .
D: Radhika you have to help me!! He said nervously
Radhika didn't know what to say feeling her grip still on her wrist stuck on the wall ..She looks in his worried eyes puzzled ..
R: Ky..kya …hua ??
D: Radhika ..I burned my sherwani….Please do something …
Radhika eyes widened up shocked ..
She looked on her arms that was stuck to the wall , Dev saw this and released her not moving away ..Radhika tried controlling her heart beats smelling his cologne
R: .umm,..Wh..why didn't tell me ..to iron it for you ?? Trying to act normal as possible but her voice still felt stiff …
HE takes few steps back tensely
D: I know ..But you weren't upstairs …And then ..I tried doing it myself ..and it got burned ..
He showed her his sherwani …
Radhika was shaking his head seeing him being so irresponsible but she was to it ..
R: Look ..I don't know what to do ..Its burned pretty badly …keeping her gaze on the sherwani
D: Radhika ..Please help me ..…asking desperately ..
She looks at him with much effort controlling her throbbing heart beats
R: wait here and don't get out until I don't come back.. Understand?? .Dev nodded his head like a little boy
Few minutes later Radhika came back with another Sherwani for him ..
D: Radhika you're the best!!! But where did you get this from ???
R: actually it was a gift for you .Me and Didi went out to get it for you few …But since its an emergency Ill give to you now ..adding sweetly ..
Dev felt so touched by this ..He wanted to hug her tightly not knowing how to thank her enough ..She was always there for his rescue
D: Radhika ..I..
R: Aap jaldi tayar hoja ye ..Thank you baad main kehna ..adding hurriedly
Dev smiles boyishly
D: Radhika ..wait for me outside ..and don't leave ..understand ? Saying ordering
Radhika smiles nodding her head and waits outside ..Few minutes later she knocks and Dev tells her to come in ..Radhika froze seeing his nice bleu Sherwani with beautiful beaded work on his collar side .He looked dashing making her heart paste unevenly .He was combing his wet hair back as soon as he saw Radhika from the mirror reflection he turned around seeing her gazing at him and smiles sweetly ..Radhika walks towards him with her payals making sweet sounds ..Dev was feeling a little uneasy in his heart ..He didn't know why but something felt strange for him and watched Radhika walk towards him , he looks down feeling a little confused .He looks up and saw her sweet smile making his heart at peace …He never figured out why her smile always cheered his heart ….Radhika saw something in his eyes ..
R: Kya hua ? Asking concernedly
Dev takes a deep breath ..
D: Radhika ..Pata nahi .. ..Im feeling little nervous about this ..glancing at Radhika
Radhika swallows the lump in her throat and smiles
R: …Your engagement is tomorrow ..today its just a pooja …She saw Dev silence looking very nervous …..You know something ..You should always listen to your heart …That's the key to the right path and if you don't listen to your heart ..You might end up in a mess …gazing deeply in his eyes ..
HE takes a deep breath gazing in her eyes ..
D: I don know Radhika ..More the time is coming close... more I feel weird ..He said looking down uneasily
Radhika saw this and didn't like seeing him like this ..Why was he feeling this way .? She wonderer ..
R: Suniye ….If you came to this point for sure somewhere you found it right ..and that's what you and vishaka wanted..Maybe for a long time and your getting close to it ....….saying this Radhika felt a dagger in her heart but managed to smile ..Y
Dev looks up seeing her give her a assuring smile ..He takes an uneasy sigh
D: Thanks Radhika ..I feel much better talking to you ..adding with a sweet smile ..Pata nahi agar tum yahn nahi hoti ..Toh mera kya hota ?? ..I mean each time Im in trouble you come to my rescue ..Trailing of with a boyish chuckle ( I don't know what would happen to me if you weren't here ?)
Radhika looked at him fondly …What would happen if she wasn't their would it have made a difference in his heart ?? She wonderer ..Suddenly Dev said something that she didn't catch ..
D: Radhika ?? Yeh stoll kaisa lagra hai ??
R: jee ??
D: Yeh sttol ?? Should I put it on or leave it ? Asking her advice
Radhika thought he looked better without it ..She came closer removing it around his neck , Dev kept his gaze on her , suddenly her choriyaan got stuck to a bead on his collar , Her gaze became a little tensed she glanced up seeing Dev looking down at her chooriyan stuck on his collar ..This mad them come closer to each other , Radhika could feel her heart pounding unevenly ..Radhika looked up at Dev again and saw his charming eyes gazing deeply into hers ..She flickered her lashes looking away trying to remove her choriyaan away ..Somehow Dev was enjoying her closeness like this , he didn't know why his heart was beating so fast with her being so close just like the other day ..He felt her body pressing on to his to get her bangle released ..He saw her beautiful long lashes flickering frustratingly , he smiled seeing this and looked down at her bangle taking over releasing it very easily ..Radhika glances up at Dev who gaze her a sweet smile , she looks away feeling her heart pasting extremely fast and her breathing getting uneven She takes a silent sigh swiftly turning around to walk away ..Dev gaze saw her beautiful lengha it suited her so perfectly ..He saw her fair soft exposed skin on her back but looked away not wanting her to notice him admiring her , didn't want her to feel uncomfortable ..But something caught his gaze he saw that there was a pin that was opened on her blouse ..He quickly stopped her feeling worried for her ..
D: Radhika …Wait ..walking towards her
He stood behind her , feeling him so close again made her heart skip a beat ..she had her gaze wondering on the floor nervously after what just happened ..She slowly felt his finger on her back , feeling this she closed her eyes controlling her uneven breathing .. Her finger were intertwining with each other absorbing a unknown feeling in her body ..Dev pined it securely so it wont open again ..She sensed his finger moving away unknowingly brushing them slightly on her upper back , she opened her eyes feeling confused with what just happened ? She looks over her shoulder seeing Dev still standing behind her ..
D: umm…Your pin was opened ..saying little nervously ..
Radhika managed to smile lightly trying to act normal ..
R: umm..Thanks ..she said slowly turning around ..Uhh….everyone is probably waiting for you downstairs ..she said about to walk away ..
D: wait ..Im coming with you ..
Radhika had her gaze on the floor thinking about what just happened and walked along with Dev
D: Umm..Radhika you look very nice ..he admitted
Hearing this Radhika smiled shyly , she felt good getting this complement from him ..she glanced up with her rosy cheeks ..
R: Thanks …Aap bhi ….trailing of softly
Dev grinned boyishly
D: thanks ! Well its your present for sure it will look nice ..Right?? Adding with a charming smile …
Radhika and dev were walking down the stairs.. The whole family smiled seeing the perfect couple walking downstairs , but the next second they realised that RAdhika wasn't the girl that dev chose…
Dadima: Mera pota kitna handsome lagra hai na?? cupping Dev cheeks
Dev gives out a charming smile…
Vaishali : Lets see how he will look tomorrow at his engagement ..adding teasingly…
Mrinalni: Hey what happned to the sharwani I prepared for you???
Dev looks at RAdhika who was getting nervous..
R: umm …didi …I thought that this one would look nicer for today pooja ….He could were yours tomorrow ….she said glancing once at Dev who felt a huge relief..
M: hmm ..Your right …saying agreeing…
Dev gives Radhika and thankful smile but wonderer what excuse he's going to give Mrinalini tomorrow??
Vishaka came down looking also very nice in a nice pink lengha they all had few chit chats ..Vaishali asked Birju to get the few arrangements they made for the pooja to put it in the car .
They all made there way to the mandir , Dev was in the driver seat and Vishaka was sitting beside him ..Radhika sat in the back with dadima …Dev eyes came to the mirror and saw Radhika smiling sweetly at Dadima talks ..He found that she was looking very beautiful ..
They finally reached the temple , they saw the sun setting down …
Mr:Puorhit : Looks like were on time ..saying happily
Radhika was walking along with dadima up the temple stairs helping her climb the stairs along with Dev . …She loved coming to this temple .it reminded her a lot of her Fathers and Ranjiv chacha mandir …They all saw Susheel along with Arjun and Deepika who took the elders blessings…
Dadima: Susheel beta ..Were so glad that you could make it …
Susheel : Arree …Yeh kya Maaji ..why wouldn't we come for this pooja ??..We found a really good excuse to meet the future choti bahu ..saying joyfully…
The family smile on even vishaka
Mr.Purohit : susheel ..yeh hai vishaka …giving Susheel her intoduction ..
Vishaka looks at dev who signalled her to take his blessings and she did ..
Susheel: Khush raho ….he said giving her blessing
Vishaka greeted Arjun and Deepika sweetly …while Radhika took Susheel blessings ..
Susheel: kaisi ho Radhika beta??
Radhika: jee ..main theek hoon..app sunaye??
Susheel: I couldn't feel more happy …
Mr.Purohit saw the pandit approaching them joyfully..
Pandit: Namaste Raj Purohit ji …folding his hands respectfully..
Mr.Purohit: Namaste pandit ji ..Kaise hain aap??
Pandit: bohut ache …bohut khushi hori hai aap sab ko yahan dhekar…
Dadima: ..Pandit ji ..were very grateful to you ..In such short notice you arranged everything ..Thank you so much ..
Pandit: Aree Shanti Devi ji …yeh sab karke hume bohut khushi hoti hai ..saying humbly
Mr.Purohit: Panditji ….I was thinking that we should start …
Pandit: Avashiya …..
Few people in the temple were leaving they saw Mr.Purohit and greeted him respectfully ..One of them was Mr.Mehra a family doctor for the Purohit who was invited to the engagement the next day ..
Mr.Mehra: Wow ! All the family is here ??
Mr.Purohit: We had to do an important pooja before my sons engagement ..saying respectfully
Mr.Mehra smiles and saw Radhika standing near Dadima …
Mr.Mehra : Purohit ji ..Aapki hone wali Choti bahu toh bohut pyari hai ..saying sincerely yet humbly
Mr.Purohit was shocked to hear this the whole family shared a worried look ..
Dev and Radhika heard this and were shocked and both glance at each other ..
Mr Purohit: Nahi nahi ..Mehra saab ..She's ..not the girl that Dev is going to Marry …he said forcefully he wished that it could have been true, the whole family looked down little upsettingly ..
Mr.Mehra : then who is she ??
Mr.Purohit and Dadima shared a little worried expression but Mr.Purohit took a deep firm breath
Mr.: Shes like a daughter to me …He said smiling at Radhika who smiled back with few tears in her eyes ..
Dadima holds Radhika shoulders and smiles …
Dadima: yeh ..Ek pandit ki beti thi ….Lekin aab yeh hamari ghar ki beti hai.. adding tenderly ..
Radhika looks at Dadima with her moist eyes …
Mr.Mehra smiles understanding ..If Shanti Devi ( dadima )said that she's like a daughter then he
shouldn't question further …The Purohit just smiled along , Dadima didn't lie she was like a daughter for Vaishali and Mr.Purohit ..Dev looked at Radhika and smiled seeing her being very touched by Dadima words.. Radhika folded her hands politely greeting him with sweet smile Mr.Mehra was very delighted to meet Radhika …Dadima made Mr.mehra also meet vishaka who smiled sweetly ..
Mr.mehra : Bohut pyari beti hai ..he said warmly…Acha Purohit ji ..hum chalthe hain ..He folded his hands and walked away …
The pandit made Vishaka and Dev sit down near the fire …He started chanting the holy prayers while Vishaka and Dev folded there hands together with there eyes closed ..The rest of the family were sitting on the floor watching the pooja, …after few minutes the pandit spoke up ..
Pandit: dev beta …you have to tie this sacred thread around your to be wife wrists , this mean that you both will always be there for each other its like a promise you both will make to each other by this red thread …And vishaka beti you have to do the same …
Hearing this Vishaka was feeling very uneasy …Dev looked around but didn't see Radhika
D: Dadima ? Radhika kahan hai ??
The whole family was looking around …
Birju: Ill go and get her …She went out she felt the smoke of the fire hurting her eyes …he said
Birju went out the temple but didn't see her , he went near the river and saw her standing there with her back towards him. Radhika couldn't see this ..It really pained her ..She probably wouldn't be able to hold in her tears in front of everyone ..Birju walked toward her feeling concerned ..
Birju: Radhika ji ..sab aapka intezaar karein hain ( Radhika everyone is waiting for you )
Hearing birju voice radika quickly wiped her tears , Birju stood in front of her and saw her holding her face low sadly..
B: Radhika ji??
Radhika slowly looks up
R: Jee bhaiya ..main ari hoon ( Yes ..im coming ..) her voice sounded very low
Birju didn't miss her teary eyes , he knew exactly the reason behind her tears and didn't question her ..
B: jee ..he said walking away ..
Radhika closed her eyes letting her last tears roll down …
Meanwhile in the temple…
Pandit: Dev beta ..mauhaurat jahra hai ..saying little worriedly..
Dev: Nahi pandit I want Radhiak to come …
Everyone was waiting ..Birju put on a joyful smile
B: Radhika ji ari hain …Aap shru kijiye ..bas athi hogi …( Radhika is coming ….GO ahead and start ..she's coming ) he said convincingly ..
Dadima: Dev….tie the tread ….
Dev gulps uneasily he wanted Radhika to be there …
The pandit kept looking outside the mauhurat was going…
Dev: Dadima …I want Radhika to be here too …
The family shake there head seeing how stubborn dev is …..
The muhaurat was already over and looked at Mr.Purohit ..
Pandit: purhotihji..mauhurat toh chalegaya …
The whole family looked on worriedly.. but somehow Dev and Vishaka felt relief …
Radhika came in and saw the family looking worried …
Dev: Panditji ..I don't think it makes a big difference …saying waveringly
Dadima: Pandit ji kya yeh theek rahega???? asking worriedly
Pandit: they can still tie the thread but the meaning of this thread will be futile ..he said warningly
Vaishali and Mr.Purohit shared a worried look ….Radhika looked at Kanhas Idol who was smiling , she frowns confusedly ..She felt a cold wind pass by making the mandir bell swinging lightly ..The family were to busy feeling tensed not noticing this except for Radhika ..
Mr.Purohit: pandit ji ..ek aur Mauhurat nahi ho saktha ???
Pundit: Purohit ji …the next mauhurat that I found was in 2 weeks ..but you preferred it today ..
Mr.Purohit : Theek hai ..we will come back in 2 weeks…and postpone the date of the engagement ..
Dev and Vishaka felt some kind of relief , he closed his eyes for a brief second taking a deep sigh ..Even vishaka , she started feeling uneasy when the pundit told them the meaning of this thread …The pundit simply told them to take blessings from Kanha and they will proceed the pooja in 2 weeks..
After a while Dev and vishaka folded there hands in front of kanha
Dadima looked at Radhika who was talking to Deepika ..she didn't know why but Radhika smile seemed fake it wasn't her real smile ..She knew Radhika real smile was much more beautiful then this ..She saw Mr.Purohit talking to Susheel ..She went to him and told him about this even Mr.Purohit thought the same …They both wonderer what was causing Radhika too act like this ..They noticed that she wasn't herself for the pass days ..
The family started talking amongst each other ..Dev went to Arjun …
D: Arjun?? Did you find anything about Karan??
Arjun: no Dev ..I tried contacting everyone that knows him but it looks like he disappeared ..I couldn't believe what he did to Radhika ..I never imagined that he would do this ..saying disappointingly..
D: I remember telling you about Karan after your wedding ..But I guess you weren't ready to believe that your friend was not what you expected …
Arjun was feeling guilty for that..
Arjun: im sorry Dev ..I should of listened to you …But I guess what's done is done ..I have karans old Address but I went to check and the door was locked..
Dev takes an uneasy sigh…
Dev: don't know what I will do if I get my hands on him …clutching his jaws together ..
There talk was disturbed by Deepika ..
Deepika: Arjun ji ..babuji bholare hain..Hume chalna cheye …saying sweetly..
Arjun smile ..
Arjun .: Coming ….ok Dev ..will talk to soon ..at your engagement ..saying happily
Devs smile slowly disappeared , for few minutes he forgot the purpose of coming to this temple..
The purohits thanked the pundit and made there way back home
R: Madhav Kaka ..Yeh zara Dadima ko dedi jiye ..She gave him a glass of water ..
Madhav : jee Radhika betiya …
Radhika smiles and goes towards the temple area ..She folded her hands in front of kanha asking him to give her courage for tomorrow engagement … ..She closes the curtains and goes towards the hall closing the lights ..Everyone left everyone went to there perspective rooms , Dev changed into his white kurta pyjama and went to see Vishaka in her room ..
D: Hey Vishaka ..
V: Dev I don't wan to talk now im feeling very tired ..after the pooja
Dev smiles understandingly
D: Ok Good night ..
V: Dev wait ..Can you close the window ..
Dev smiles and tries closing it ..He was pushing the window down put his hand got caught and the window closed on his hand ..He moaned in pain and quickly slid out his hand…He cursed the window silently ..His hand was bleeding ..
V: Dev are you ok??? She asked concernedly…Seeing the blood she looked away …..Sorry Dev but I cant stand seeing blood …Here take this …giving him tissues …
Dev glanced at Vishaka and left the room taking the tissue ..
Radhika was still wearing her lengha walk in the hallway holding a basket filled with some drapes ..She bumped into dev and dropped her basket and quickly gets down to picks them up ..Dev started helping her with his left hand ..She glanced at his other hand that was bleeding her eyes widened up and saw Dev acting normal about it ..She quickly holds his hand looking at the blood .Dev looks at Radhika seeing her concerned gaze ..
R: Yeh kaise hua??
He just kept looking at her she had few tears forming in her eyes ..Like she couldn't see him in pain ? She held his wrist possessively bringing him in her room fast .. She opened the light in her bathroom and opened the tab putting water on his wound carefully not wanting to hurt him ..Dev just looked on seeing her painful expression seeing his cut on his palm . She makes him sit down on her bed .Dev was so touched seeing her act so fast seeing him hurt ..It wasn't the first time he saw such concern in her but he had to admit that he loved her care towards him ..He saw how she was so different from Vishaka ….Radhika took out the medication and sat on the floor holding his hand delicately ..She started applying the medication with care on his wound ..A smile appeared on his lips gazing fondly at Radhika ..Her long eye lashes were flickering worriedly , her lips were blowing on his cut while applying the medication so it wont sting him ..His heart started beating for her a feeling that was hidden deep inside him was starting to come out .. up seeing Dev gaze into her teary eyes ..He didn't understand why she gets tears in her eyes when he gets hurt ??
Radhika slowly looks away even though she didn't want to but she had to get a hold of herself ..He was going to be someone else's ..
D: thanks Radhika.. ..Saying appreciatively
R: Aapko yeh chot kaisi lagi?? Tying the bandage ..( how did you get hurt ?)
Dev came out his thought and tried answering her question ..
D: I was in Vishaka room ..And I closed the window but my hand got stuck …
Radhika stands up
R: But did vishaka see this?? Asking little curiously
D: Haan ..but she doesn't like seeing blood and gave me a tissue
Radhika looks down knowing that Vishaka hated seeing blood , she remembered the other day when she got a cut how she was over reacting …but if he gets hurt next time Will Vishaka take care of him the way she does ? …Her thought got disturbed by his voice
D: Radhika ? Can I ask you something ??
She looks up and smiles
D: ummm….why do you feel so concern for me …it looks like you cant see me in pain ??? He asked looking fondly at her
Hearing this question Radhika heart skipped a beat and looked at him stunned …She couldn't admit her real feelings towards him …She swallows the lump her throat and managed to give him an answer …
R: You considerer me as you friend …And its my job too be there for you..Muhje dosti ka farz nibana hai …she said warmly
Dev smiles tenderly hearing this …
D:…You take such good care of me ..but me ..I ..don't even …
R: Nahi ..Aap mere bohut acha khayal rakthe hain …Don't ever think that you never took care of me..Becuuse of you ..Im alive …Im safe with your family …she said trailing of tenderly.. Don't you ever say that you were never there for me …hmmm….she said sweetly gazing in his eyes and forwarded her hand for there hand shake ….Dev smiles cutely and does the hand shake ..
There hand shake was disturbed by a soft cold breeze coming in from the calming night ..Radhika smiles walking towards the window dev followed and put his body against the other side of the window ..They were both looking at the bright moon surrounded by shimmering stars ..Dev looked at Radhika who was gazing up at the stars with a cute smile on her face …
Few minutes later Radhika spoke up …
R: Umm. .Suniye ??
Dev comes out his trance
R: Kaafi dheer hochu ki hai ..She said glancing once outside ..You should go and rest ..she said warmly ..
Dev smiles and nods
D: Tum bhi ..And thanks for being such good friend ..adding warmly
Radhika smiles watching him walk away ..He closes the door and takes an uneasy sigh walking to his room Radhika stood near the window playing with her pendant around her neck looking outside pensively ….
