I know we are all still trying to absorb the news of MB leaving the show. this update is morose i know but kind of reflected my mood.
Hope you like it.
He knew the moment he was long for yet running away from was going to happen, he would have to face her, this time there would be no Dr Rangnath, no patient nothing to divert. She got up from the bed and made a move to go her hand was already on the door knob when she heard...
"Nidhi" he repeated softly. " How are you?"
For a moment she thought she had mistaken, that voice, that tone, it was not the doctor talking but the man she had fallen in love with. She turned around and looked at him, for the first time since her return she saw the Ashutosh who had swayed her away.
" I am okay" came the rather terse reply, she knew she should not read too much into that, if she did it would rekindle her hopes and that would lead only to despair, she knew him he was a man who would stick to his words, if she did read more into his question she would run the risk of getting hurt once more.
She moved to open
the door when he continued, " Thank you" " Thank you for staying at Kotnis" she
was stunned... looking at him she realised that indeed she had been right not
to read too much, looking at him now she could not see any sign of emotion it
was Dr Ashutosh the Senior Doctor of KGH and not her Ashutosh.
" I have been taught well sir, back in my internship days I was taught to always complete a the job once I had started it", with these words she dashed out of the room.
Ashutosh for a moment did not know how to react, what he had wanted to say and how it all came out. Her final words hit him hard and he knew nidhi had meant them to be. Could he blame her, he was the one at fault, in attempting to protect her back then he lost the only one who could make him complete and in a way destroyed her as well. He had been right, he was not meant to be loved or to love someone. " I will have to make sure our paths don't cross this time, I have hurt her enough" he said in a determined way, not knowing that at times what we want may not be what God has decided for us.
Nidhi for her part had gone to the common room in an attempt to regain her composure. Seeing him alone had opened up all those souvenirs she had tried to conceal. Unknowingly she too decided on the same thing, to keep away from him.
Both firm on their respective resolutions managed to complete their duties without crossing each other's path again. The next day Nidhi was off duty and went home.
Lots of things had changed in these two years, one being the fact that she had moved away from home.
After the showdown after the return of Mandira
Di and the revelation of hers and Ashutosh's relationship, Nidhi had preferred
to move out and to add to her woes back then baba had not objected. With the
time things had calmed down and to a great extent things had calmed down but
she never returned home preferring to visit them when she wanted. She knew that
her decision had hurt baba but he respected her wish. Their relationship had
returned to a certain degree of normalcy but Dr Ashutosh and whatever had
happened back then was never mentioned between father- daughter.
Back home, she went
straight to her room and opened a drawer, she took out a box that had remained
hidden since then. Seeing him, having what she thought to have been a glimpse
of that man revived the memories that she had hoped to keep hiding. Trembling
she opened the box and got out a chain with a small heart shaped pendent with
it, she opened the pendent and looked at the picture inside, it had been taken
on their first Valentine day, at the time when she thought anything would be
possible so long they were together. Even now it hurt when she reflected on his
lack of faith in their relationship yet she could never blame him, she knew he
had done what he thought was right, maybe back then something was missing her
love for him, but now she knew and was sure of it there was no one who could
replace him, to uphold his wish she would do her best not to cross his path.
Looking at the
necklace made her walk down memory lane, how that day he had surprised her, the
same man who was dead against the idea of celebrating V day had weaved his magic
on her. More than the gift it was something that he had said back then that
made more sense now. When he had gifted her chain she had been on seventh
heaven, and she had bemoaned the fact she did not have anything for him. He had
been right when he had said that more than the gifts the moments that they had
spent together held more value than any gift that she could have given him.
Now when she reviewed her life she had to agree that he had been right, for her all those moments that they had spent together had become her lifeline during these years apart. Today when he had called her it opened a floodgate of emotions that she had been trying to keep buried deep. Why would he still care now when back then he had wanted off?
Both Nidhi and
Ashutosh were facing a maelstrom of emotion not knowing what name to give or
how to react to their feelings. The next day Nidhi was on call, to a great
extent she had managed to control her wild emotions, but once in KGH it became
clear to her that fate had decided against her as she discovered she was on
duty with Dr Ashutosh. Wondering how he would take that news she made her way
to the OT.
