"Mom, dad can you please tell me too what is happening?" Said Nandini coming out from his dad's embrace. She felt odd to say dad but on the same time she was so much happy that her happiness had no boundaries.
Padma and Shashank looked at each other and they knew it was time to tell her everything.
Shashank took a sigh and started the story "Beta the think I am going to tell you today, I myself got to know it last week..." he paused " Me and Padma were married for three years, we lived in Mumbai with my younger brother and...
Shashank entered in the room and saw her wife, Padma and their one years baby, he kissed on Padma's cheek then on their baby's forehead "kaisi meri biwi aur meri choti si Abha?"
"We both are fine, how are you?" asked Padma
"I am really tired today as I had lots of work in the office" said Shashank placing his briefcase in his desk.
Padma stood up and put Abha in the crib then went to her husband and took his coat. "Go and take a shower, I will set the dinner" said Padma
"You to come" said Shashank naughtily
"Shashank..." said Padma becoming red, then she pushed him in the bathroom and rushed toward the dining room.
That was how their life was going happily until the day Padma heard something she wasn't supposed to hear.
After putting Abha to sleep, she went in the kitchen for putting her feeder to wash, while going there she heard, Veer, the younger brother of her husband speaking on the phone "ya, I want 50 crore in my account now" said Veer "JUST SHUT UP, do as I say" said an angry Veer "I said just do it,you are saying like you have never stole money for me before from the company, you will be paid twice than before... Yeah don't worry you'll got the money once you have done the work.. bye"
Padma was shocked to hear that Veer was stealing money from the company account. She can't believe it.
After saying bye, Veer turned and found a shocked Padma at the door, he started panting "Bhabhi???" he didn't knew what to say
"Why had you done this Veer?" asked Padma once she was able to digest the news.
"Come on Bhabhi, I just lost the money in Casino, but please don't tell bro" said Veer after ghatering some confidence.
"Veer, I will tell your bro, he deserve to know everything"
Veer started sweating badly, he didn't knew what to do " What do I do now?" he said to himself.
with that Padma made her way toward the kitchen she puts the feeder while thinking 'how am I going to tell Shashank this? he won't be able to believe it"
After few minutes, she went to her room, once she reached toward the crib Abha was missing "where had gone Abha?, I just put her there" she was surprised to not found her there. Right then her mobile rang.
"Hello, my dear Bhabhi, now if you want your princess Abha alive just leave the house now or I'll kill her" threatened Veer
"Veer where are you? Where is Abha?" asked Padma while crying
"Oh you wanna hear her voice" said Veer in an evilly tone
He pinched Abha which caused her to cry. Padma closed her eyes with tears coming out, she didn't knew what to do.
"Now be a smart woman and leave the house and I promise Bhabhi I will never play Casino but you have to understand that Bhai isn't meant to know that and one more think I will send you every month Abha and shashank's pictures and will tell you about there whereabouts, I won't hurt them, that's my promise, now leave before Bhai come at home and don't you dare tell him anything about me"
Padma cried "OK I will leave but please don't hurt Abha"
"I promise I won't hurt"
"can I see her before leaving?"
"You wanna see her then I think you will see her dead body, So you wanna see her?"
Padma become pale on the thought of her daughter dead. Veer knew by the silence that it meant not.
"That's what I thought, Once you arrived at your new house, do message me your address, I'll send you money every month and Bhabhi I am not that bad you see I just don't want bro to know about it"
"Veer please leave Abha, I promise I won't say a word to Shashank" said Padma through her sobs
"Now Padma Bhabhi don't make me an evil so just obey as I said. Even I too don't want to kill Abha but I won't think once before killing her, now you have two hours to leave" Veer cut the phone with a laugh
Padma cried badly, she will have to leave to make her daughter safe. She went in her room helplessly and packed her bag.
Before leaving she took and pad and a pen then started writing.
I'll have to leave although I don't want to but I have to. I just want you to take care of Abha and give her all the happiness that we dreamed to give her. I want you to be happy.
And if we have in our destiny we would me and that day maybe I will be able to tell you why I left.
Do forgive me for leaving you but I am helpless. Now Abha, this house and everything else is your responsibility.
Do take care of yourself, I will always love you.
Your wife Padma.
And after that Padma left for Delhi, once she had a house she messaged her address to Veer, not to receive money but to receive Abha and Shashank's pictures every month.
After two weeks she started feeling sick and started throwing up, she consulted the doctor and got to know she was pregnant that was the most memorable day of her life. She touched her stomach and thought 'Shashank even if you are away from me I have a part of you in me' she smiled through her tears 'I so wished that we had been together'
On the other side, Shashank was really depressed, he tried to search her everywhere but wasn't able to find her. He knew he had to be happy for their daughter sake. He started leaving his life again, he so missed her. Before going to sleep he looked at his wife's picture and poured his heart out.
Once Shashank and Padma finished telling the story, he found himself in tears as well as Padma and Nandini. He was still holding both women in his arms. "Dad It means I have a big sister?" asked Nandini through her tears looking at her dad.
"Yeah" answered Shashank
"When am I going to meet her?" asked Nandini
"soon, she is busy now in exams even though she wanted to come but her exams were important so I told her to stay in Mumbai but I promised her that I'll make her meet to you, her family soon." said Shashank
"Dad, Abha wants to be a doctor?" asked Nandini, she wanted to know everything about Abha.
"Yes she wants to be a doctor" Shashank said with a smile, He was so happy to found his wife and his daughter.
"Shashank how do you get to know I am here?" asked Padma.
"Veer told me, he just suffered from a heart attack and he was taking his last breath at that time he told me everything and after telling me the truth, he was no more" said Shashank crying even more. True, he hated Veer for what he had done to his family but on the same time he was sad because he loved Veer a lot all these years. He just wished Veer had told him about him losing while betting, he would have forgive him but he didn't considerate telling him.
"Can we talk to Abha?" said Padma, she wanted for a long time to talk with Abha, her elder daughter.
"Is this even a question to ask?" said Shashank and he called Abha, they talked with her and all were crying and those were happiness' tears.
After that, Nandini hugged her parents tightly, she was happy to have both of them.
"Just wait I'll come right now" then pecking on her parents cheeks she ran in her room. After so much sadness that was the most happiest moment for both daughter and Mother.
Nandini took her mobile out and dialed Manik's number but Manik wasn't picking up the phone. "Why isn't Manik picking up the phone' she said angrily, she so wants to tell him about her dad "I guess I would have to tell him tomorrow"
She went downstairs and said "mom dad, today I want to sleep with you both, I want to sleep in your lap dad, I so missed you, I so missed you when I saw other kids going home with their parents, I so missed you on my graduations day, I so missed you when I just wanted to be with both of my parents" saying that she hugged her parents making them emotional too.
They can understand how much she missed him but she had Karan who was like a dad to her.
Then they went into Padma room. Shashank sat on the bed and Nandini placed her head in his lap and he caressed her hairs. While Padma looked at them with tears. She placed her head on his shoulder. They slept in this position.
It was almost a family perfect, only Abha as absent but she too will be with them soon.
When Nandini was calling Manik, he was actually talking to Soha on his phone, that's why he didn't pick Nandini's call.
As the sun arise and the rays entered in the room making her awake, she rubbed her eyes and titled her head. She smiled looking at her dad and her mom. She was so happy, it was like a dream.
Nandini didn't want to disturb them so she quietly left the room. Going in her room she got ready and was looking really forward to meet Manik she wanted to tell him about her dad, the happiest news of her life.
She took her bag and made her way downstairs, through the window she looked out waiting for Manik. She picked her phone as heard the bell.
"Hello Manik where are you? I am waiting for you" said Nandini, in one breath
"Nandini, I am sorry I won't be able to make it up on time, as Soha's car's tire got punctured, I am just going to pick her up. Can you go on your own at college today?, I promise It won't happen again" said Manik, he was feeling sad to not pick up Nandini but on the same time he could't leave Soha alone.
"OK, then see you at college, bye" said Nandini in disappointing tone and her eyes moist
She was sad that Manik wouldn't be able to pick her up, she was eagerly waiting to share this news with Manik, 'but it seems nowadays he has some more important priorities than me'. She wiped her tears and went in her parents room. She left a note on bedside table, near the lamp, 'mom dad, I am going to college, see you after the college. Love you.'.
Leaving the note, she came out from the house. She knew her dad is rich and if she told him to drop her at college he would have dropped her happily but she didn't wanted to disturb them as it seemed they were sleeping peacefully after ages.
She sat in the taxi, in no time she reached in the college. This was for the first time she is coming on her own. She felt sad that her Manik has changed. It was not that she wanted to come in a car but she wanted to come with Manik, she wanted to be with Manik that was all she wanted.
"I remember how it used to be,
when nothing else matter but you and me,
music, spending time together, and future dreams...
I miss you, I wish you could see,
although you are here, I miss you and me.
I remember when you said how happy I made you,
I miss those days when you'd call just to say "hi"
I miss those days when you come to and say get up,
I don't want to go out, have fun or to do a things...(Thanks Nidhi)" thought Nandini in the way to college
She made her way in the college and as she was feeling hard to breath thinking of Soha and Manik she went in the garden. She was happy today but sad too, this heartache was becoming unbearable for her. She stood there with tears streaming down, she wiped her tears and told herself again and again that she has to be strong.
Manik stopped the car in front of the gate "Soha you go I'll join after parking the car"
Soha came from the car and made her way to Ishika "where is she?" asked Soha once greeting her.
"In the garden"
Soha nodded and she quickly messaged Manik that she was in the garden. And then she went to Vivek and said "you remember everything, right?" asked Soha
"Yeah you don't worry" said Vivek with a smile
Then Soha and Ishika made their way in the garden, where they saw Nandini.
"You ready?" Soha asked Ishika
"Yeah" replied Ishika
What is in Soha's mind? What is she going to do?
...To be continued.
So here is the chapter 8.
Are you liking the story?
Please leave your comments, do like and pretty please share the link with your friends.
To those who asked me about the story being inspired by KKHH or JTYJN:
This story's concept is slightly inspired by them, because the lead are friends and that's where the similarities stop and thus why I didn't find it important to mention it, this concept is used for too many books, as are: pregnant girlfriend, revenge stories, and so on. If you find too many similarities, do let me know. Yet, My story as you will see is no where like these movies
