Continued from last post...
Radhika, now confused and in a state of horror, takes the lady doc in her room. The lady doc is Dr. Bhargavi Peihu, an Assamese lady who is in-charge of the whole doctor's quarter.
Radhika enters her room and to her utter shock finds out that the luggage of Charu is no where in sight. She searched like mad but nothing came out.
R:It...it w-was here...I-I am telling the truth! It was here..."
Bh: "Listen Radhika, no one seen your friend. I mean no one. Not a single person did. I think you're tired. Take some rest. Its 10 pm now. Take rest. Good night."
Bhargavi leaves the room with Radhika sitting on her bed completely shattered and clueless. She has to find out what exactly happened. Where is Charu? Why no one saw her? All those questions roaming her mind. She suddenly remembered that the ward boy saw Charu this evening only in her chamber. She quickly tries to leave the room, but she noticed that the quarter main gate is locked. She knows one more nuisance from her will create a ruckus out here. She decides to wait for the morning.
That night was full of anxiety, agony and frustrating for Radhika. She roamed in her room throughout the night, looking at the clock everytime. The time never passes by. "The night is so long" sighed Radhika.
But she was tired and slept in the midway of the night. She woke up to find out that its already 10 am in the clock. "Gosh, its so late!"
She quickly leaves her room and goes to the hospital. But before she can meet the ward boy, Dr. Seth faces her.
S: "Morning Dr. Sharma. I heard that some problem is going on with you."
R: "Yes sir! Please I need some real help. I need to look for the ward boy.."
S:"Before that, I must conclude, you meet me in my room. Let's see how big your problem is."
S:"Right now...Sharma," the tone was sharp and extremely harsh.
She unwillingly followed Seth in his room. "Now listen Sharma, there has been a huge complaint from the doctor's quarter about your unexplainable behaviour last night. Do you have to say anything?"
R:"Yes, my friend Charulata Sen is missing."
S:"Your friend? Now from where did she come from?", Seth looked confused.
R:"She came from Mumbai to stay with me. She missing for all night long."
S:"Well as per the testimonies I received, there is no record of your friend visiting you."
R:"Do you think I am mad? I'm just doing blah blah??"
S:"Calm down, Sharma. Okay, here's a deal. If I bring each of the staffs and doctors here to prove that there was no friend of yours, will you surrender to the fact that we are right?"
R:'I am right sir."
S:"Very well, Sharma, give me 10-20 mins for calling all the staffs in the conference room."
Radhika leaves the room. Suddenly she thought lets meet Raj. Maybe he can be of some help for her.
She goes to Dhanraj's room.
Dhanraj sitting showing back to Radhika, reading newspaper.
D:"Yes, I know about it. Radhika, I'm sorry."
R:"You believe in me?"
D:"Yes I do. I know Charu was here. Charu was with you. But this hospital is playing dirty games with you."
D:"They did it with Bharti, now they doing it with you. All one reason. Dr. Suhel Seth."
R:"Because, I know the secrets...from you."
D:"Yes quite right. But you don't worry. I am with you. I am standing by you."
Radhika comes close to Dhanraj. She has tears in her eyes. She suddenly embraces Dhanraj. Dhanraj shows equal affection to Radhika.
D:"But make sure you stand by me."
