This is a part that I had written some time back but never got a chance to post...

The aunt through her experience had realized that
maybe the two of them had not spoke openly to each other she decided to
do something about it...she called Anji n avinash independently to
meet n then called them saying tht she couldn't make it once she knew
that they had reached...
Surprised Anji n avinash started to
retreat but then they saw each each other... Surprised ...awkwardness
and a lot more is what they both felt when they met they enquirer about
each others presence n then realized that it was the aunts saazish...
They laughed about it n discussed some of their mischievousness with the
aunt in the childhood... It seemed like they had found a common point
after coffee stating work he decided to head back offering her to drop
her by her house but she mentioned her need to go to college I finish
some work. And excused herself but not before they had exchanged their
From Herron had started the silsila of emails ...,
it was not tht tey were falling in love but they had started sharing
their days details with each other... Just like how it all starts ...
month had passed by Anji and avinash very still talking sometimes via
phone as well... Nikki was 6 months pregnant her stomach very visible
from afar... Abhi looked happy so did she... Finally she was starting
to see her life just as she wanted ... Still not perfect but beautiful
nevertheless ... Armaan n riddhima well their life was as normal as
it could be... She had started her college n would manage the
household too so her n Armaans life had become busy but they would make
sure that they give each other some time once during the day whether it
met meeting at lunch... Or going out for long drives at night even
though they would be tired or just going out on weekends... It was
just like it should be...
Muskaan was in a terrible condition... Her health worsening day by a day but she would always hide it from others ...,.
saw her one day in a bad shape n decided to take her to the hospital
... She resisted riddhima threatened tht if she did not go riddhima
would tell Armaan Muskaan had no choice... Riddhima and Muskaan took an
auto to the hospital
Nikki n Abhi had decided to
to a restaurant... After all it was after such a long time that they
were finally going out... They took an auto to the restaurant
and Abhi holding hands talking about their future when Nikki shed a
tear . Because the future seemed uncertain... He consoled her
mentioning that jut by being with him his condition had improved so
maybe tere could be something that could be done ...
te other hand looked at Muskaan ... She was worried for her ...
What was goin to happen ... Why was she not saying anything ... What
was wrong with her...
Armaan called her on her cell
She talked to him avoiding telling him about the fact that her and Muskaan were travelling to the hospital at the moment
After a while she hung up the phone
There was a lot of traffic on the road
Riddhimas rickshaw was ahead in the traffic while Nikki's was a little behind... The traffic did not seem to ease
Abhi was starting to get irritated by the noise ...
He asked the driver to rake a diff route if he could... But the rickshaw was stuck in the traffic and h
only way out was if they could reach the traffic signal which was a
little ahead of them the driver could thn make a turn...
Riddhimas driver decided to take the turn seeig that there was no other way out...
Both the rickshaw a Nikki's and riddhimas were now out of the traffic The road was quite
called again to riddhima mentioning that he was missing her ... N the
fact was tht she was indeed feeling the same...
Nikki n riddhimas rickshaw were side by side now but each one of them busy in their own world did not see the other ...
was a junction coming ahead n the road was empty... The drivers sped
up each trying to overtake the other... N in between both of them did
not see a large truck approaching them out of the intersection
Wham- wham- whammm
The truck hit Nikki's rickshaw n in turn hit Muskaan n riddhimas rickshaw
driver of the truck saw the rickshaw coming out of the intersection but
by the time he applied the breaks it was too late...
Armaaannn" she screamed as the crash happened
" Bhabhi" Muskaan screamed as the rickshaw tumbled over and pushed the second rickshaw
truck collided with the first rickshaw...and the break finally went
into effect but not before crashing into the rickshaw...
It damaged the rickshaw but what it damaged inside was much worse
Nikki was unconscious bleeding and Abhi he was a little awake n bleeding too ...
Their impact was much stronger than riddhimas
The truck driver ran away seeing the amount of loss he had created
The drivers went unconscious on the spot taking the impact of both the rickshaw a
Armaan had heard her scream
kept on saying riddhima... Ridddhimaaa but could hear no reply back
from her... He panicked started the car and went home to find out
Somebody was passing by the site when thy saw what happened n decided to call the police n the ambulance...
The police came n then did the ambulance... Immediately the ambulance pulled out the stretchers n took the patients
Riddhimas phone fell from her hand as they put her on the stretcher
The police saw the phone and looked at the last dialed . He called the no.
Armaan was driving back to the home when he received the phone call
" hello" the inspector said
" hello riddhima... Where is riddhima... Let me talk to her"
The inspector continued " sir the lady in question has been in an accident"
Armaan panicked ... Just something he was afraid of as she had screamed
" we are taking her to safurdung hospital there are three other casualties and two rickshaw drivers as well. "
" thank u officer I will be there"
He said hung up and drive to the hospital...
How ... N why????!
He hoped that riddhima would be safe...
He called up home to let Ananya know about it...
Ananya asked her about Muskaan aa Muskaan had gone with her...
He worried more
The officer had said three more ... Did that mean Muskaan too...
told her mother to stay home n once he finds out anything he would tell
her..., he did not want ny more casualties with rickshaw a affecting
He reached the hospital
And asked for riddhima
The sister asked who
He said riddhima
sister said there is no one by that name here but she asked if he was
here for the patient from the highway accident n he affirmed
told him that she was being operated on... As she was pregnant n
the accident had been a massive blow on her out of the four...
was shocked ... Just stood there ... His riddhima pregnant
... N she had not even told him ... N before she could tell him
this thing ... He panicked and asked the sister to inform her of the
All the while walking upstairs to the OT room he was frantic.
"Riddhima" he whispered " my baby... Y did this happen?"
The doctor came out ...and saw Armaan " u must be ?" He asked questioning...
" I m Armaan ... Riddhima is my wife the one who is pregnant"
doctor " okay I am very sorry to say this tht she has been severely
hurt in the accident and as a result the body has lost a lot of blood we
are trying to save both the mother n the baby but only a few more hours
could tell how many lives we could save..."
Armaan was devastated... The news of her pregnancy had to come in such a manner...
He nodded the doctor went ahead
He looked into the OT room couldn't see the patient...
He sat down...
He saw Ridddhima being taken on a stretcher to a general ward...
Immediately he got up and asked the sister " sister where are u taking her "
The sister said " we are taking her to the general ward she is stable just needs some rest"
" but the doctor just said that he has to monitor the mother n the baby" he asked
it's not her ... It's the other lady that got into the accident
...,,. She is 6 months pregnant " she looked at him as if asking why
is he asking so many questions n he replied that she was his wife...
So she took him with her to fill out the necessary forms
Panic seemed to evade him as he realized his riddhima was safe but he wondered for the other woman...
N Muskaan wasn't she here too he pondered
asked the sister about te other girl with riddhima m she said tht she
was fine too along with the guy who was with the pregnant lady... She
got the major impact as the truck hit her first...
He felt bad for the lady
Abhi woke up " Nikki Nikki" he screamed the sister cm up to him " where's Nikki where is my wife"
" she is still in the oT " she said " is she okay... How is the baby... I need to see her please sister"
" u need to take rest sir ... The doctors are with ur wife... She will be fine"
was restless did not sit down the sis pages the doctor he saw his
restlessness n have him something to sleep n then went to attend Nikki
She was gaining consciousness that's Wht the doc wanted ... A sharp pain erupted in her belly
" abhiii" she screamed digging her nails into the bed to help her release te pain...
consoling hand came on her forehead " sister" the doctor informed the
sister to give her the epidural ... The pain started easing
She quickly looked down her belly still intact
" m I okay doctor ... Is my baby okay" she asked immediately
the doctor called her name as e heard it from Abhi earlier on " u were
involved in a car crash with three others ,...,., ur husband is fine" he
sai as she was about to ask about Abhi ." So are the other two ...
Ur baby is very weak ... U have lost a lot of blood ... We are
trying our best ... But in case. We are not able to save both of u I
need a consent signed... "
please don't panic this is a normal procedure ... N I would have told
ur husband but u seem to be more stronger of the two mentally..." He
continued " we don't have much time please talk to ur husband I will be
sending him in shortly"
Saying that he consoled her and left to send Abhi in
Nikki was devastated
The unborn child was her only hope of survival ... After Abhi... She could not bear this ... It was too much for her
Abhi came in... Looked at Nikki n her belly
Nikki dear ... " he said " the doctor sent me in saying that e
explained something to u ... U r okay na... The baby it's fine na...
Nothin will happen to the two of u..."
He started crying...
" Nikki please don't cry " he said and hugged her and kissed her to make her feel better...
" the baby ..." She cried...
"What abt the baby Nikki" he said breaking the hug
the doctor told me that we have to sign a consent that in any case
something happens to the baby they would not be responsible"
what " he asked " but why u r fine ... The baby is fine we don't have to
sign anything Nikki... U will be fine ... Let me talk to the doctor"
Aaa Nikki started squealing the pain starting to come back
Abhi I don't have much time they need to operate on me ... But they
are going to ask u to sign the form please think wisely n choose ...
Aaa" she screamed the nurse came in ...
Doctor came in
" sit please sign this consent form we need to take her "
Abhi w as lost
Looking at her
Their only reason they came back together ...
" I can't sign this form"
what" the doctor looked at him " ur wife is in pain... Do u not get
it ... I understand loosing a baby is a big deal but this is a consent
we will try out best but the accident is such that there is no guarantee
... N u will have ur wife back ... Come one please don't waste
anymore time ... The more u delay the more u r endangering her life ...
He signed it reluctantly n they immediaey took Nikki to
the it she screaming in pain looked at Abhi a last time before leaving
the room on the stretcher...
Abhi sat down there
could he explain to the doctor that he did not have time that Nikki
... He had taken so much pain for this baby... Tht the baby was his
world with Nikki...
An hour passed... A few hours passed ... He waited outside the OT...
woke up and realized what had happened ... She asked the nurse about
Muskaan and was told that she was int eh other room n then she asked
about the others who were hurt... The nurse told her that the lady is
in OT the baby is fighting for its life n the husband is safe
He felt very bad for them and wanted to go and meet them when the doctor came in
" Mrs Riddhima right..." The doctor said
Armaan came in at the moment too
The doctor looked at Armaan Armaan looked t riddhima then at te doctor
" yes mr Armaan ... U may meet ur wife but let me complete these formalities"
so mrs riddhima..." She aske her about did she feel pain st any
particular place she nodded a negative et hand was hurt n there was a
scratch on her forehead but other than that she was fine
The doctor thanked her n was about to leave when she asked " how is the other lady doing doctor ..."
" her baby is fighting for its life... Mrs riddhima... But u take care"
She said left
Armaan hugged her tight as soon as she left
Riddhima" he kissed her cheek " with ur scream I was so worried...,"
" Armaan ... I m sorry I took Muskaan out with me n this happened"
"Hey no it's not ur fault... It's the truck drivers fault who hit ur n the other woman's rickshaw
looked at him" did see her... The nurse said the baby is fighting for
its life n the doctor too... It's so bad Armaan " she said n hugged
" growing a baby inside u n then losing it like that... I feel so bad for her"
He touched her hair to calm her down
" I am just glad it's not u ... At first I thought the pregnant lady was u "
no Armaan if I ever was pregnant I would tell u first..." She
said hugging. Him tight ..." I just feel very bad for the woman... "
He kept on caressing her...
" let me check on Muskaan " he said
" let me come with u too"
" no u sit here she is fine I just need to talk to her"
" okay" she said n laid on the bed
He kisse sher forehead n went to the other room ...
As he entered he saw Muskaan talking to someone on the phone n hung up as soon as he came...
" did I interrupt u"
He asked questioning how did she hang up the phone
" no bhai... Is Bhabhi okay" he nodded a yes
" this was so bad ... The other lady ..."
He cut her speech " yes I know ... We are all praying for her n the baby..."
She touched her belly inadvertently
Do u have some pain...
" no bhai just the thought of losing a baby that's growing inside u for so long ... It's painful"
hey don't worry everything will be fine " he said and hugged her...
She hugged him back. N ten he decided to get back to riddhima...
As he went by he saw Abhi
What was Abhi Doing here he questioned
" Abhi" he called out
" Armaan u here"
I want to ask u the smae ques he asked
Abhi almost had tears in his eyes
" Nikki ... "
" what happened to her..."
She is in the OT we got into an accident ... Our baby is fighting ...
hugged him and Abhi let out tears... " seei her like that ... Was
killing me... Already she had taken so much pain to grow the baby n
Armaan made him sit asked the sister for some water and made him drink it...
" have faith Abhi... Everything will work out ..."he decided to stay with Abhi as he needed help the most the moment
The light on the OT ended the doctor came out ... Abhi n Armaan both for up
N looked expectantly at the doctor
mr Abhi" he said putting a hand on his shoulder " we tried our
best... But we could not save ur baby... Nikki is unconscious at
the moment but she will be fine"
" doctor I she finds out about the baby ... Do u think she would be fine?"
mr Abhi ... U have to be strong ... We tried our wry best..." He
looked at Armaan to make him understand Armaan nodded...
Abhi stood there
brought Nikki out n took her to a general ward... Abhi was afraid to
face her ... Armaan didn't know what to do ... He told him that if
he wants he could come with him. It's at tht point that Abhi said no
that this was his n her loss n her will have to address it n saying that
he walked towards Nikki's ward
Armaan was shocked for a moment
... Nikki was the other patient who was in the accident with Abhi...
His entire clan in one accident... How was he going to say this to
riddhima ... She was already worried about Nikki n now... He started
walking n didn't realize when he entered her room...
He looked up at her breaking his thoughts
" yes riddhima ... Umm Muskaan is fine..."
Riddhima looked at him questioning " how is the other woman..."
He couldn't answer ...
" riddhima " he called her out m cm up to her and held her hand " it was Nikki ... She was the one in the OT ..."
" how is she now... How is the baby..."
" Ridddhima ... Nikki lost her baby..."
She looked at him shocked ... He hugged her but she was still in shock ... " I have to see her ..."
" riddhima Abhi has gone to her ... He needs to tell her first ..."
" Armaan it's my sister ,... I need to be there..."
She said and left him there running towards Nikki Armaan had mentioned the room no to her
Armaan walked behind her
Abhi had entered the room
Nikki was touching her belly ...
He shed a tear
" Nikki ... Love"
He said as he entered
SHe gestured towards him asking for a hug
He came n hugged her tight
" not so tight the baby ..."
He couldn't stop it ...
" Nikki " he said breaking the hug
"" Nikki listen to me ... We lost our baby"
" what are u talking about Abhi look the baby is here" she said pointing towards her stomach...
" Nikki ... U have to grasp this ... We lost the baby"
" stop it Abhi ... Y r u doing this "
" I know this is hard for U for me for the both of us... But we lost our little angel ... She couldn't take the accident..."
And then the accident registered in we mind
" no no this can't be Abhi there must be some mistake "
" look my stomach ... It's still intact"
" Nikki" he said and showed her the belly the cut marks to show that the baby was taken out...
She looked at tht and at him ... Registering what had happened ...
He hugged her and she cried ... Cried relentlessly...
Riddhima came in
" Nikki jeeju"
They broke the hug still crying
" riddhima tum yahan..."
" Didi I just heard... " she came n hugged her " we are all with u don't worry ... Things will be fine"
" nothing will be riddhima ... Nothing will be..."
Abhi looked at her " Armaan must have informed u na"
She nodded a yes n Abhi enquired about her wrist ...
" I was the second person who got injured in the crash ... Me n Muskaan ... But none of our losses can be as big as urs "
Nikki looke d at her ...
" you ... You are the cause of all this"
Riddhima looked at her
Abhi too and asked her to calm down as he knew she was traumatized
Armaan was almost coming in the room when he heard the conversation he stopped
" no let me speak ..."
" tum hi ho meri har har ki wajah"
" Di aap yeh kyun..."
" riddhima ... U took away everything from me... Everything "
Riddhima ran up to her n tried to hug her she shrugged her off
" stay away from me ... I lost my baby because of u ,... I m losing Abhi now ,... Too..."
She looked at Abhi
Nikki interrupted her... " don't u looke at him ... Next u will take him away like u did Armaan"
That was a blow to her ...
" she took. Armaan away...?"
Was Nikki repenting it
Armaan heard it n came in
Nikki ... I know you have been through so much ... But riddhima
was hurt too ... But in front of u she is not showing the hurt...
Please don't hurt urself by doing all this"
" I am sorry riddhima ... Nikki has been theough so much in life ... That ..."
Abhi..." She called him " y r u confronting her ... I m ur wife
dammit... Riddhima first u took Armaan away from me ... Then u took
my child n now u want Abhi too ... He is leaving me in a few days "
she blurted out ... " does that make u happy..."
" Di" riddhima cried " I hv never n never will ..."
I lost my baby riddhima ... Do u even know what that means ...
Losing someone whom u wished to bring upon this earth... I have
struggled with do much tht baby was my redemption ..." She cried " u
took it away" Abhi consoled her
Abhi said " it was not her fault Nikki ... It was the drivers"
Nikki broke the hug
it was riddhimas fault ... Ever since she has been in my life I hv had
trouble ... She has been the cause if every misery of mine... I
will never forgive u Ridhima ... Never " she said and cried on abhis
Riddhima just. Stood there
Armaan came in and took riddhima with him...
He took riddhima and Muskaan with him after they were discharged back home...
Riddhima couldn't understand y did this happen today ... Did Nikki mean everything seriously ...
She called up padma to inform her about Nikki's condition
And hung up the phone ...
Armaan held her hand in between his driving but what Nikki had said nothin to surpass that...
In all this confusion Muskaan was the only one who was relieved ...
wanted to meet Nikki but. Her harsh words n Armaan had also prevented
her from going ... Why was everyone doing this ... Was it her fault
One day when Armaan went to work on the presence of going to the market she went to see Nikki
Nikki opened the door and seeing her decided to turn off the door when she held it..
" Di aisi kya berukhi ki apko main bilkul las and nahi"
" what do u want " she said angrily
" I want to talk to u ... Just talk .."
She let the door open n went in riddhima closed the door behind her...
Nikki ignored her completely
Riddhima felt hurt
" Di what have I done that aap mujhse itni berukhi se baat kar rahe ho.."
She did not answer
" Di" she started crying
" riddhima go home... Yahan Armaan nahin hain tujhe sambhalne ke liye"
She stopped crying and looked at her
" mujhe apni Di vapid chahiye"
" woh Di usi din mar gayi thi jab tune Armaan se shaadi kar li thi..."
Se was shocked to hear that
don't act so shocked riddhima... Tujhe pata tha ki main Armaan ko
aur Armaan. Mujhe pasand karta tha... Phir Bhi tune shaadi ki...
And whn I was moving ahead with Abhi u killed my baby"
" Di I did not kill ..."
u killed my baby riddhima... U killed it... U took Armaan away from
me otherwise I would not have been in such a situation I would not have
been with Abhi I would not have lost my baby ... I would have been
where u are... U took my place riddhima u will never be happy..."
Riddhima was beyond hurt hearig all this
" did u love Armaan...?"
riddhima I should be asking u that ... Did u ever love Armaan after u
get married ... Did u ever make love to him... No the sign of love
making is a baby... I don't see that with u"
Riddhima just took all the pain that her Di was giving her...
" u snatched what was destined to be mine... N that's y u r getting this riddhima..."
" now Abhi is goig to leave me too ... Who am I going to live for... U killed me riddhima u killed my existence my child"
She fell down n cried
Riddhima ran to her but Nikki gestured her to not touch her
Riddhima was so hurt that staying there another moment meant getting more insulted and hurting herself more...
" Di if u want Armaan if u still love him ...I ..."
" shut up riddhima ... Just freakin shut up..."
Her Di had never spoken to her like that never... Until now
" please Di I can't see u like this ... I want to help u .."
Riddhima said still trying to understand her Di
Nikki with a sarcastic smile on her face said " u want to help me huh riddhima... U really want to help me..."
" yes Di " she added
" give me my baby back..."
" can u"
Riddhima didn't know what to say
" how can u ... U killed it"
" Di please" riddhima said closing her ears
" it's hurting me all these accusations of urs what do u want me to do to help"
u want to help me na ... Give me abhis baby... He is leaving he
doesn't have much time ... My womb is not strong yet to carry the
baby... U be the womb to carry the baby... Do that n I will forgive
" can u do tht"
" yes Di" riddhima said wiping her tears without thinking much " if tht is Wht mks u happy I will do it"
Saying tht she left the apt crying her way out into the rickshaw going back home
she realized the implication of what she actually said... She raised
both her hands near her mouth in astonishment ...
What was Armaan going to say...
