Mr Dubey run to the Kitchen when he found aarti on the floor unconscious with blood on her nose, and Sobha holding her, he was shocked because aarti in her whole years with them never pass out then he said taking his phone " Im gonna call for an Ambulance"
It was night and on the hospitale Sobha was holding aarti hand , this one was sleeping on on the hospitale bad Mr was standing next to her , them he put his hand on her shoulder and said " Dont worry the doctors has done all the test and give her the treatment soon she will wike up, and the doctors will come with the results its probably just fatigue"

Mr dubey " a pic ? "

Aarti hit her forehead and said
"o my god i forgot to call Aman and Sunita and tell them that im

Sobha tel said " aarti stop tlking and stop your Madness for a while you need rest please lie down, you will call them later "
Mr Dubey "by the way i call you work and talk to amen was so

Aarti " they dont have to came im fine, but dad you didn't tell them

Mr Dubey " No dear dont worry "
Aarti" good because i want to tell them myself "
The door open and 2 doctor come in ,
Mr Dubey " Hi is everyting is ok ?"
Sobha " Nothing is wrong with our daughter ? "
The doctors look at each other and one of them said
" I have some news for you could you come with me to my office "
Aarti said " Come on Doc im awak and im 26 years old , just tell us all its a bad news right you guys dont look happy , please tell that becuase you had work so many hour "
One of the Doctore smile head on the bed and stand next to it
and say " Hi miss aarti you are finally awake, Hi im Dr Khanna
Neurosurgeon , how do feel ? "
Aarti " Scary ,you work on brains right ?"
The Doctor said " yes miss aarti and im sorry to said that i have
some bad news for you "
Sobha suddenly stop her toughs when she hear Vidhi calling her
" Mom we are home please lets go , dont worry aarti is gonna be
ok with yash "
Our flashbacks are not always happy we dont call only to see our happy days or tortoring our self with the bad ons ,we just want to analyze the situation, and finally end with to questions like " What if ..? " " Why we dont have those happy time enymore? " and "Why all that had happen to us ?"
