"abhay? What are you doing here?" I asked shocked.
He scratched his left ear and smiled shy, he hadnt changed a bit. Still these eyes, that makes me drown in it and this breathtaking smile that made my knees weak.
"Well, I was in the near and wanted to go for a walk and suddenly I was here and saw you standing here..." he watched me up and down which made me feel uncomfortable.
"You look great, its good to see you." he said serious and a bit sad.
I still wasnt able to think normal and only stared at him, but then I came back to reality.
"Th...thank you, you too." I looked unsure around as if I would something that could help me in this situation.
"How are you? You look tired." he asked now concerned. That made me even more unsure.
"Fine, thank you. Im fine." I told more to me than to him.
"And what about you?"
"Im also fine, thank you... I..." My mobile rang.
"Sorry, I have to get this." I said and turned around to answer the call.
"miss piya? Here is Kathy from the hospital." said the nurse who cared for Rohan.
"What has happened, Kathy? Is something with Rohan???" I asked in panic.
"One moment, the doc wants to talk to you." she only said and handed the receiver over.
"Yes. Please doctor, what has happened?" I was so desperate.
"Nothing bad, miss piya. Calm down, please." he comforted me.
"I only called to tell you that we found somebody with the fitting marrow for your son. Could you please come so we I can tell you more about it?" he asked. Tears of joy welled up in my eyes.
"Sure, Ill be right there." I felt like a tonn of stones fell from my heart.
When I turned around again, I looked into abhays confused face.
"Are you ok?" I nodded.
"Yes, Im going to be ok, soon. Listen I have to go. It was nice to meet you again, bye." With that I ran away to get as fast as I could to the hospital.
"Ah, there you are, the doc is already waiting for you." said Kathy as I arrived at the hospital. I went into the office where the doc waited for me with a big smile on his face.
"Well miss piya. Its true, we found somebody and he already told us that hell be happy to help your son." said the doctor Smith grinning.
I was so happy that I hugged him of joy.
"Thank you, doc. I cant tell you how..." but he cut me off.
"Oh, not so fast, first we have to make our little fighter healthy again, then you can thank me." he giggled.
"Ok, the man said thats hes in town at the moment and I arranged a meeting for you tomorrow at 10 if thats ok." I beamed at him.
"Of course thats ok."
"Great, then I see you tomorrow."
I went to Rohans room, where Emily stood there with tears in her eyes.
"Im so happy. Now everythings going to be ok." she hugged me tight.
"Yes, everythings gonna be ok...finally." I whispered.
"Mum, that is so cool, Ill be able to play football with uncle jeh again!" called Rohan happy.
"Yes, honey. Uncle jeh is already looking forward to it." I answered smiling, sat on his bed and stroke his head.
"Do you stay with me tonight?" he asked hopeful.
"Of course, Rohan. I only have to fetch some things from home, than Ill be back, ok?" he nodded brave.
"Go, Ill stay with him till you are back." said Emily.
"Thank you, Emily."
I drove home and ran into the livingroom.
"misha, jeh...You wont believe it, they found..." I froze as I saw abhay sitting on the couch, having a coffe with misha and jeh.
"abhay, you...you are here?" I asked suprised.
"Yes, jeh has invited me over." he answered. I shot jeh a look and he mouthed a Sorry
"What were you about to say?" asked misha now.
"Well...um...can I talk to you both for a moment in the kitchen. Sorry abhay." I said and pulled misha with me.
"What is he doing here?" I asked mad.
"Im sorry, I thought you would stay at the hospital tonight..." excused jeh, I saw that he was really sorry for bringing me into this situation.
"No jeh. Im sorry. abhay is your friend and you havent seen him in years because of me. Im really sorry." A tear ran down my cheek. jeh watched me for a while, then he hugged me.
"Its ok, piya."
"Im so sorry for my behaviour." I cried.
"Sh, its ok." comforted misha me.
"But piya, what happened?" she asked now a bit concerned.
"Oh yes. You wont believe it. Today when I met abhay in the park..."
"You met abhay in the park?!?!?!?!?!?!?!" The asked in unison.
"Yes, at our tree, you remember? Doesnt matter. Well, Doctor Smith called me to tell me, that they found somebody with the fitting marrow for Rohan!"
I called excited.
"Really?! Oh my god, thats so great!" they called and hugged me.
"Yes, Ill meet him tomorrow at 10 and I wanted to ask you to come. Please."
"Of course we come. Im so happy for you, piya." misha had tears in her eyes.
"Thank you. You are really the best friends in the world. Ok, I just fetch some things and go back to the hospital." With that I ran upstares and packed some stuff.
"Ok, Im off! See you tomorrow!" I called and left.
This night I lay awake on the guestbed in Rohans room. As much as I wanted to sleep, I just couldnt, so many things went throught my mind and I was still concerned because of Rohan. Sure, they had found a matching person, but it could still be that his body wouldnt accept the other marrow.
And about abhay... yes abhay. What should I do? Why was he here? Why now? And why was my heart beating so fast everytime I think of him.
Should I tell him about Rohan?
It was very hard for me to manage the loss of the love of my life. For weeks I just hid in my room, crying all the time and letting nobody near me. Uncle and Aunty tried their best to help me, but it didnt work. I stopped eating and just wanted to die.
"piya, may I come in?" Aunty stood in the door.
"Please leave me." I said weak.
"Dont you think its time to get over him and go on with your life?" she asked soft.
"I know, aunty. But I cant, I just cant." I whispered, fighting the tears again.
"I can imagine how hard it is for you, but we are all really concerned about you, especially misha. She feels guilty for being in love with jeh while you are so..." I looked shocked at aunty and sat up on my bed.
"Is she mad? Why should she be guilty. Im so happy for her!" I called.
"Well, perhaps you should show her that and talk to her." said aunty in thoughts.
I got up and stormed into mishas room. She and jeh sat on the couch, cuddled together.
"Why the hell do you think you should feel guilty for being in love with jeh?" I called so loud that they jumped.
"piya, I just thought, as you and..." she stuttered, but I cut her off.
"It doesnt matter if abhay and me are together or not. You are happy and thats all that matters, ok. jeh is such a great guy and Im so happy that you found each other. So stop thinking like that, ok?"
The nodded and looked with big eyes at me.
"piya, I just want to tell you that Im really sorry for you and I quitt my friendship with abhay." said jeh now. I was shocked.
"jeh, NO! abhay is your best friend. You cant quitt your friendship because of me!" I called, but he shook his head.
"Its ok, piya. Its not because of you, I would never accept a behaviour like that. No matter if its my best friend and the girl is my girlfriends sister."
The tears welled up in my eyes again and I hugged jeh.
"Thank you, jeh." I said simply.
"Youre welcome. And hey, youll be my sister in law, so I have to be nice." he joked and for the first time in weeks I could smile again. But suddenly I felt strange, my stomach was making flipsides and the room was spinning.
"piya? piya!" I heard misha call, then all went black.
"piya? Can you hear me?" Aunty called me. When I opened my eyes I felt like a truck had knocked me down.
"W...what happened?" I asked weak.
"You lost conscious. jeh catched you in the last second. And you are now in the hospital." explained Aunty, right then the door opened and the doctor came in.
"Ah, I see you are awake, Ms. piya. My name is Dr Linger." he extended his hand.
"Doctor, what is with piya?" asked aunty concerned.
"Well shes too thin, thats why she lost conscious, but there is something else." he explained.
"But I want to talk with piya alone, please." He said, giving me a look I couldnt point.
"Ok, Doctor. If you say so." She left the room.
"Ms. piya, you know what Im about to tell you?" he asked, but I shook my head.
"No, doctor, what is it?" I asked nervous.
"You are pregnant." he simply said.
"What, but...no...oh my god..." I whispered, the tears welled up in my eyes again.
"What shall I do, doctor?" I asked desperate.
"I dont know, Ms. piya. But if you want to have an abortion, than you should decide fast." I looked shocked at him.
"How can you even think of that? I would never do that." I said mad, which made him smile.
"I thought that you would react like that and thats good. I just have to do this to see how the women think about abortion... Ok, think about everything, try to calm down and try to get some sleep, Ill tell your aunt, that you need to rest and she shall come back tomorrow." I nodded.
"Thank you doc."
I was shocked, but too tired to think about that now, so I fell asleep immediately.
When I woke up the next time, misha sat at my bed.
"Hey, how are you?" she asked as she saw that I had woken up.
"Like a truck had knocked me down." I joked.
"Thats not funny, I was scared to death." I looked at misha and saw that she had been crying.
"Im sorry, misha." I said serious.
"Its ok, just dont do that ever again, ok?" I nodded.
misha, I will need your help in the future..." She looked concerned at me.
"I...Im pregnant." I whispered, she held her hand on her mouth and looked at me with big eyes.
"Oh my god, piya What will you do?" she asked.
"Ill keep it, what else. Sure, it was stupid from me, but thats no excuse to kill a unborn child." I said and looked at her.
"Will you help me?"
"Sure, Ill help you. You are my sister." We hugged.
"Im really proud of my daughters." came uncles voice from the door, we looked suprised at him and aunty, who stood next to him.
"What?" I asked confused.
"Yes, we are proud of both of you. Of you piya because you decided to keep the baby even if its going to be tough and of you misha because you promised to help your sister without hesitation." he explained.
Uncle came nearer and hugged each of us.
"Im so sorry, Uncle." I cried.
"Sh...dont be. Well get it."
The whole night I couldnt sleep and so I decided to get up really early and go for a walk in the park.
It felt good to be outside and to breath fresh air.
When I came back, Rohan sat in his bed and enjoyed his breakfast.
"Good morning Mum. Today is the big day." he called excited.
"Yes, honey. I know."
Right in time, misha and jeh arrived. They looked pretty nervous.
"Is he already here?" asked misha, but I shook my head.
"No, the doc will fetch us if..." right then there was a knock at the door and Kathy came in.
"miss piya, would you come please?" she asked smiling.
"Rohan, well be back in a few minutes, ok?" he nodded.
misha, jeh and me walked to Dr. Smiths office and knocked.
"Come in." he called, I sighed and opened the door.
"Ah, miss piya.. Great you are here and I see you have brought your friends, wonderful. This is the man who can help Rohan." he said and showed at an older man. I froze.
"Mr. raichand." was all I could say.
"Yes piya, its me." he answered.
misha and jeh looked confused at us.
"Um...thats my sister misha and her husband jeh. And thats Mr. raichand abhays father."
