(one year later)
"Hey" Rk Hugged a very pregnant Madhu from behind & kissed on her cheek. She placed her hands over his hands on her protruding belly & rested her head on his chest.
"How are u, Darling?" he asked her smilingly & kissed the back of her ears.
"I'm fine" she smiled slightly.
"Is ur feet aching stillness?" he asked her worried.
"Still it's aching mildly" she replied honestly.
"Then why are u standing near the balcony. U could rest on bed right?" he asked in a chiding tone.
"I was looking at the park. I missed going there. Will u take me there today, please" she asked turning to look at him.
"No darling. See u have foot pain, how will u walk? More over kids will be playing, too much of crowd, infection will spread, it's not good for ur health, please try to understand dear" he said lovingly making her heart swell for him in love.
"Atleast late night will u take me when there is no crowd??" she tried to convince him.
"At night the weather will be too cold, darling"
"Please, Rishu" she pleaded him cutely. He leaned his forehead on hers & whispered "i couldn't say 'no' to u ever if u plead me like a baby. OKAY!!" Madhu quickly pecked on his lips in reward for granting her permissin.
"But on one condition" he said.
"U will rest now & after dinner we will go to park, okay?" he asked. She nodded with a wide smile making him go crazy for her. Then he carried her in his arms back to their bedroom & gently placed her on the middle of the bed & he sat at the edge & started massaging her feet.
"Rishu, what are u doing? No please!!" she tried to free her legs from his hand.
"It's okay, Biwi, relax" he said & started pressing.
"Hmm.." he hummed still working on massing her feet.
"Come close to me" she said stretching her hands out for a hug.
"What darling? U sound low. Is everything alrite??" he asked worried seeing her hugging him tight as if her life depend on it.
"I'm scared" she whispered not breaking the hug.
"I told u not to worry"
"Still the position of the baby is not changed. I'm worried"
"Everything will be fine, love" he promised her.
"If anything goes wrong u would choose our baby, okay"
"Nothing will go wrong"
"I wish so but still I want u to promise me that u will choose the baby. I love our baby so much so please" she asked him to promise her. He remained silent. Now worry is evident in his eyes. He can't make choice between his wife & child.
"I promise" he promised her & she smiled in relief. He made his mind that he will choose his baby, the new life deserves to live but he will die with his wife if anything goes wrong because he loves her more & he can't live without her.
"Careful" Rk helped Madhu to sit on the swing. As he promised he had brought madhu to the park after dinner. He wrapped a shawl around her & she rolled her eyes at him for being tad over protective.
"You are so silent?" Rk asked seeing madhu deep in thought. "Are you still worried? Say "ALL IZZZ WELL" he said like Aamir khan in 3 idiots movie to cheer her up. She reluctantly smiled at him.
"What's wrong darling? Don't take too much of stress, it's not good for ur health & the baby's too" he caressed her head.
"Rishu, what if our baby is also born like me, visually challenged?" she asked in sheer fear. She can't imagine the life she lived once for her baby.
"U said it right, visually challenged, if our baby is born so, then let him or her face the challenge like you faced in ur life Madhu. We will teach them to be bold & brave & fearless. we will make him or her strong to fight the world. We are not going to love any less or any more if our baby has any disabilities, Madhu" he said caressing her cheek with his thumb. She looked at him with heart full of love.
"I love u, Madhu" he kissed her soft lips softly.
"I love u too, Rishu" she kissed him back.
"Ouch" she broke the kiss & inhaled sharply.
"Seems baby want to say 'I love u' to Daddy, so kicked mommy hard asking her to tell it on her behalf, okay... I love u, Daddy. U r the best" Madhu said smilingly caressing her belly with one hand & Rk cheek with other.
"I love u too, my sweet darling." he placed a kiss on Madhu's stomach & he received a kick on his face back making both Rk & Madhu laugh in joy.
"Madhu, its getting late, shall we go home?" Rk asked her.
"Some more time, Rishu, please"
"Don't please me, Madhu, then I'll never win" Rk pouts.
"Madhu, we should go now, its getting cold here. See u r feeling restless. Come" Rk stood up & held his hand for Madhu.
"What's the time?" She asked.
"12 am" he said seeing from his wrist watch.
"Happy Birthday Trishna" she said turning towards the empty swing where Trishna used to sit. Madhu & Trishna used to celebrate their birthday's in the park sneaking out from their house at mid night.
Rk smiled feeling proud of Madhu & Trishna's friendship.
"Come" Rk asked for madhu's hand & helped her to stand up.
"She placed a Rose on Trishna's swing & walked with Rk.
(same day morning)
"Rishu..." Madhu faintly called Rk after recovering to her conscious state. Madhu got her labor pain at mid night & she was rushed to hospital & due to the wrong positioning of the baby, Doctors had to go for a C-Section.
"Madhu" Rk smiled at her & leaned down & kissed on her forhead.
"Baby" she whispered.
"here" he took his baby from the crib & gently showed to madhu.
"He or She?" Madhu asked excitedly.
"Trishna" Rk smiled brightly. They have decided if it was a baby girl then they will name her Trishna.
"Awe...My Trishna darling, my little sweetheart" Madhu gently grabbed the baby from Rk's hands & cooed Trishna holding her close to her bosom & wept at the same time in joy.
"So all the love & kisses for Trishna huh?" Rk asked faking anger.
"Awe...My poor husband, I love u. give me a kiss" Rk grinned & kissed madhu tenderly on her lips & then he placed a kiss on his baby girl's forehead.
"Happy Birthday little Trishna" both Rk & Madhu wished her feeling happy that their Trishna was back & both kissed on either sides of the baby's cheeks.
"Trishna has ur eyes, Rishu" Madhu said happily.
"No, She has ur eyes, Madhu" Rk corrected her.
"Okay. Trishna has Trishna's eyes"
"Yes!! A very beautiful AANKHEN"
