Thanks Aarti. I am feeling much better now.
This chapter is a good continuation from the last one. It was nice that you took the time to dwell into Nidhi's reactions to Dr. P's harassment and Ashu has vowed to look into this matter in the professional setting. Good, that sleazeball deserves everything that comes his way. Once again, Ashu and Rohan had a brief but good convo, both men understood, respected and trusted each other after the incident. But what exactly did Rohan do to take care pf the dirty baggage?
I am glad that you liked the chap. Ashutosh will deal with Dr P. in this next chap. Very effectively.
But Dr. P will have had a chance to set some tongues wagging.
As for what Rohan did with the Jerk, that too is there in the next chap. It should be amusing.
Once again, all the elders advice was bang on, they wanted to remove Ashni from that surrounding for their own good and also to stop to stop tongues from wagging.
But the entire scene at home, Ashu's confronting his thoughts, his decision making process while remaining aloof from Nidhi, finally succumbing to the inevitable and the beautiful confession of love was all so well-done. Really, the scare earlier, Nidhi's dependence on him for emotional and psychological support, culminating in her display of trust by asking him to stay with her, after all this how could Ashu hold himself back??
I figured that the Elders should have some say. And yes, they gave good advice, as normally our elders do. I really liked that also, I am so glad that you noticed.
You also noticed that there was a purpose to the fight, and Dr. P. Thanx for that two.
these two things were meant to be the catalyst that made Ashutosh own up to his feelings. Ashutosh knows that Nidhi is old fashioned. And that she trusts him. There is nothing better than those two barriers to put a damper on things. So, he is waiting till she is ready.
So, now the secret of the wedding is out. And even Ashu saw that deep, hidden yearning in Nidhi's eyes, understood her desire and has proposed a formal wedding, going on his knees nevertheless. So far, so good.
Thanx. glad that you liked that.
One more thing, Ashu wants to talk to Nidhi about her wardrobe...seriously!!?
Wonder if this is good or bad, bad if he displays a very possessive streak, will it be too hard for Nidhi to handle? Or will she pull him up and give a piece of her mind just like she did with the money issue? OR good, if he indulges her and make her but nice clothes?? OR is this a non-issue??
Thats not a big deal. But the conversation is going to be an interesting one, that is why I have mentioned this in both these last chapters. But over all, it is not going to affect the story as such.
But wonder if they can pre-emt the gossip at KGH.
I am sure with stuff like inquiry Dr. P is going to indulge in some mud-slinging. So, how are Ashni going to face this? And will he also unearth Ashu;s past and will Ashu once more have to face questions on his character regarding the false rape charges? Nidhi knows but how will she handle this, inspite of giving Ashu her assurance?
They will not be able to pre-emt, but will try to do damage control. And Dr. P is going to have his day, before Ashutosh gets to put a wrench in his plans.
Ashu's past will come up in a nasty way. Courtesy of Dr. Purab. But Nidhi will be by his side.
She will do the right thing. Her actions might surprise you.
Anu, wonder if you are going to bring these two issues up, will this be a major hurdle in their life which they have to get past at some point. Eager for more...
Unlike KPji I will be tying up all the loose ends, before I end this FF. But I still have a while to go before I do that
