ok here it is!
Today everyone was in the hospital visting Shalu, she had just given birth to a baby boy.
" What are you going to name him ?," Vidya inquired.
Shalu and Chinu smiled down at their newborn son and then exchanged mutal looks.
" We are going to name him Sameer," they said together.
Vidya and Sagar smiled with delight.
" Good choice in name guys," Sagar quipped.
As Sagar's parents came to give their blessings to the baby, Shalu turned to Vidya.
" Now it's your turn Vidya. When are you giving us all the good news?
Vidya blushed slightly.
She peered over at Sagar. She had a feeling she could be pregnant this time but she wasn't sure.
Shalu snapped her out of her thoughts.
" I hope when you do, it's a girl. My son will protect his little cousin sister at all costs," she promised.
" We'll see when the time comes," Vidya replied as she glanced over at Sagar.
Everyone returned back to the house to rest as they had all stayed up many hours as Shalu had been through a long and tough labour. But had it been worth it as they now had a beautiful baby boy as additon to their family.
Late in the night, Vidya awakened because she was feeling queasy. She decided to make some limo pani and then try sleeping again. She crept slowly out of bed so she wouldn't wake up Sagar.
She heard a strange noise as she walked down the stairs. She asked if anyone was there but no one answered. She shook her head.
" I must be half a sleep," she though to herself.
She made the limo pani and headed back towards the staircase.
This time she saw a shadow so she placed the jug in the corner table and grabbed a vase.
The theif turned slightly and Vidya smashed the vase on his head. he crumbled to the ground.
Hearing the vase shatter, it woke up Sameer, with his crying the whole house awakened. Everyone rushed to the main hall where Vidya was weary on her toes.
" Vidya kya tum theek to ho?." SM asked.
They all looked startled at the guy on the floor. Sagar came downstairs hearing the commotion.
He grabbed Vidya as she fainted.
SD exclaimed," I will call the doctor. Take her upstairs. The police will be here soon!
Later after the theif was arrested. Sagar sat beside Vidya stroking her head as the doctor did the check up. The doctor drew some blood.
" She was really dehyrated. You should tell her to take car of herself. You both are young and I suppose you wanted to have children. You need to take care of each other," the doctor stated.
Sagar nodded firmly.
" Thanks for coming here so late at night. Come I will escort you out," he stated.
After the doctor left, Sagar told the others Vidya was resting, the blood report would be in by the morning.
Vidya regained conciousness sometime later. She frowned why was she in the bed. Hadn't she just knocked out some thief or someone who wasn't supposed to be there?
She looked to the side and Sagar sat up leaning aganist the headboard.
" Are you all right Vidya? Here you should drink this," he handed her a glass of limo pani.
" The one I made must have gotten warm by now," she muttered.
" That's why I made you a fresh batch," he said with a smile.
She drank it and then he took the glass from her and kissed her forehead.
" Now rest, we'll know that you are all right in the morning," he stated.
The next morning, Vidya came out of the bathroom dressed in a cream colored suit.
As she glanced in the mirror, Sagar came in with a tray of food. He set it down beside the bed.
He came over and placed a hand on her stomach.
" So how long did you know and when were you going to tell me?," he inquired.
" I wasn't sure Sagar, I thought it was a possibility but I wanted to get checked out after Shalu gave birth," she stated.
" The doctor confirmed it earlier this morning. We are expecting. You are silly, you are three months along and now we get it confirmed.
Vidya giggled and she turned to embrace him. He rubbed her back comfortingly.
She promised herself next time she would tell him earlier.
Five years and six months later.
Vidya finished her morning prayers and now was searching for everyone to take blessings and prasad.
She found everyone except her little angel.
She bent down to Sameer's level.
" You are here but where is your partner in crime?," she inquired.
" Auntie she's playing with the new doll set, Sagar Uncle brought her," he quipped.
Vidya shook her head.
Sagar spoiled their daughter too much.
" Kritika. come downstairs!," she called out.
Suddenly appeared a little girl with two pigtails.
" Coming Momma," she said sweetly.
As she came down, her father grabbed her into his loving arms.
Vidya came over to them and stroked Kritika's head. The little girl kissed Sagar's cheek, then Sagar leaned her towards Vidya. Kritika planted one on her mother's cheek.
As Sagar's parents entered along with Chinu and Shalu who were visting for breakfast, Vidya realized her family and her life as a whole was soon to be complete. She placed a hand on her stomach. Just one more piece of the puzzle she thought with a smile. One more junior would join them in a few months time.
She would tell Sagar after breakfast.
hope you all liked!
