He saw her retreating form from behind. Despite of calling out her name she did not bother to look back to him. She was hurt; really hurt and Arnav knew it. But what could he do? She was making him cross his limits. Though Arnav Singh Raizada never had any limits but still he wanted to keep Khushi away from him. But the more he tried to stay away the more he started getting attracting to her. And this was driving him crazy. Arnav Singh Raizada has never lost his mind on something. But the day he met her everything started changing in his life. He was sensing that the Arnav whom he had cremated long back under this masked ASR was budding up.
He felt as if he wanted to start enjoying his life around her. Her smile, her crazy talks, her eyes, her talks everything was making him lively, but he knew it was just for sometime. She belonged to someone else. She loves someone else. She loves him so much that just for his life she lost her most precious asset.
Snapping his thoughts he moved back towards the parking lot to get his car.
After leaving he took right towards his house. After driving couple of minutes he saw a truck drove past him in a very rash manner without thinking he suddenly made a U turn and drove towards the road where Khushi was walking.
He heard the truck blowing its horn madly and suddenly he became numb, the thought of Khushi walking on the road crossed his mind.
What if she is walking in the middle of the road?
What if she is lost in her thoughts and couldnot listen to the horn?
What if the truck driver is drunk?
What of the breaks of the truck were not working?
What if the truck hits her?
In no time he switched to his top gear and zoomed the car.
He was blowing horn madly behind the truck, beeping his headlight but the truck driver seemed to have ignored his signals.
"Come on Khushi, I hope you are not on the road damn it" he muttered under his breadth, sweats forming on his forehead and below his nose. His hand moistened. He is grip on the steering strengthened.
He zoomed his car beside the truck to over take and just then he was a shocked Khushi standing in the middle of the road looking at the truck.
His eyes widened "Oh shit" was his last word before he over took the truck and twirled his car infront of the truck to block it from running down on Khushi.
After stopping his car he looked at Khushi, tears forming in his eyes, Khushi looked at him and started running towards his car and then
The truck stopped immediately after it hit the white SUV. Arnav's head got hit in the window. He tried to look at Khushi, but his vision was not cooperating with him. He could her her voice calling him but slowing fainting in the depth of the darkness around him. He saw her for the last time and closed his eyes.
ARNAV JI! ARNAV JI!
Khushi came running towards him and opened the car. He was about to fall as he fainted leaning on the door when Khushi held him in her arms.
She jerked her few times calling his name but there was no response. His forehead was bleeding badly. The blood was oozing out like hell.
"Arnav ji! Please open your eyes. Look I am so sorry. For me today you are in this state. Na meye aapko ignore karti aur nahi aap mere peechey atey. Hey Devi Maiya please don't let this happen. I am already over burdened. For me pulkit is suffering so much and now Arnav ji.
She tear were not stopping. Her body was getting colder thinking about the consequences. Suddenly she jerked him again "nahi Arnav ji aapko uthna hi padega (you have to get up) you just cant be like this. Ab meye kiske paas jaungi madat mangne (to whom shall I go now to take help)? Who will help me Arnav ji?
You have to get up, Arnav Ji! Are you listen? Why are you opening your eyes Arnav ji. She jerked her few more time but there was no sign of his senses.
She helplessly hugged him almost embracing his entire face with hers resting her forehead on his and crying madly in the middle of the road.
Please get up Arnav ji she said in between her sobs.
After few seconds a person came and stood beside her "bitiya" he called her.
Khushi broke the hug and looked at the old man standing beside her.
"Kaka, dekhiye nay eh bol nahi rahe hai. (uncle please look at him, he is not speaking)"
"inhe humme hospital le jani chahiye bitiya (we should take him to the hospital) before its late"
Khushi immediately got alarmed and stood up. She looked at his senseless form and then looked back to the old man again.
"Kaka, please help me to take him to the hospital" she requested.
"Hum inhe truck meye le ja rahe hai" the old man who was the truck driver told her.
"thik hai kaka, aap inhe le jaiye hum inka saaman leke ate hai (you take him with you I am coming soon with his things).
Khushi got inside the car and took his phone and wallet which was keep on the dashboard and stormed out of the car locking the car door behind taking the keys with her she ran towards the truck.
She got up and sat beside Arnav and made him rest his hand on her shoulder.
She was about to dial aman when her phone got switched off due to low battery. She hesitantly took his phone and was about to check Aman's number from the phone book his phone started vibrating.
"misha home calling"
She immediately got tensed. She did not know what will she tell her. But she know she have to tell her no matter what.
"Who is this?" misha asked suspiciously. She was shocked to hear some woman's voice in her bhaiya's phone.
Misha knew about Arnav and other woman's link up but she has never heard him talking about any particular girl with misha. He always kept girls out from his personal life.
"Misha, this is Khushi!"
"Hi! Khushi, where is bhaiya?"
"misha..misha! Arnav ji" and she burst out in tears crying madly over the phone.
"What wrong Khushi? What are you crying? Is everything ok? Where is bhaiya?"
"Misha ji, Arnav ji!"
"Khushi please calm down and tell me whats wrong?"
"Arnav ji ka accident ho gaya hai (he met with and accident)"
Misha dropped the phone on grond and immediately sat on the nearest counter. Gul was howling from past 15 mins (exactly when the accident happened). That's the reason misha called Arnav when she did not find Arnav at his room.
"Misha! Misha! Are you there? Hello? Misha!"
After about 50 seconds misha picked up the phone and spoke "Khushi, where are you?"
"I am taking him to the city hospital. We are on our way, I think we will reach in 5 mins" Khushi said between her sobs.
"Ok stay there I am coming".
"Misha1 please do me a favor please inform aman ji about this".
Khushi reached the city hospital and rushed inside the emergency ward. The ward boys rushed towards the truck with a wheel chair. They took him out from the truck and made his sit on the wheel chair and immediately took him the hospital.
They laid him in the stretcher and Khushi held his arms tears flowing down her cheeks. They rushed his towards the emergency ward and made him lie on the bed to check his wounds and other normal check ups like pulse rate, BP, if there is any fracture etc etc.
Khushi stood beside him holding his hand looking helplessly towards the busy surroundings.
The on duty doctor asked "Madam when did you husband met with this accident?"
Khushi just froze for sometime and looked blankly towards the doctor.
"Madam I am asking you"
"ya your husband. When did this accident happen?"
The doctor came near her and held he shoulder "I know it is tough for you to answer at this moment but we need to report this to the senior doctor who will take charge after this. Don't worry maam your husband will be absolutely fine. Nothing major happened to him. His BP is a little low and his pulse rate is on the little higher side but the rest of the things are fine. We just need to wait for him to gain his conscious because unless he is conscious we cannot declare him to be fine. Ok? So when did this happen?
"About 25 mins back" she replied still lost in the thought of thinking him as her husband.
Just when she had completed giving them details about the accident Misha rushed inside the emergency ward and came near Khushi and saw arnav's unconscious from. His beloved brother's lifeless form made her out burst.
Khushi placed her hand on her should and gave a smile of assurance. Misha immediately held khushi's hand and looked at her first she was a little surprised to see her but then she pulled her in a hug and sobbed badly. Khushi caressed her hair to sooth her anxiety.
"Tell me Khushi that bhaiya is going to be fine. I have no one in my life other than bhaiya. Tell me he is not going to leave me alone in this world just like my mom and dad. Tell me Khushi, please tell me".
"Nothing is going to happen to him Misha ji, Devi maiya is going to make everything al right". That's when she heard a baby's cry.
Misha broke the hug and looked towards the door "oh god, I don't know how can I make gul stop crying? She is crying since 45 mins now and I am sure she is going to fall ill if she continues like this.
Their she was, her face totally red, her eyes puffy and red, she saliva dripping down her mouth and only one name in her mouth "paaah!"
Khushi just couldnot control her feet after looking at bewailed Gul. She ran to her and stood in front of her. Gul stretched her hands to come to Khushi still sobbing hard pouting her tiny rosy lips. Khushi immediately took her in her arms and patted her back.
Gul was still crying badly when Khushi took her to Arnav and made her face him. Khushi took her tiny hand and made her touch Arnav's hand. Gul immediately wanted to go to Arnav so she started struggling in khushi's arms.
Khushi placed her on Arnav's chest resting her head on his chest and holding her firmly so that she doensot fall while resting on him.
After few minutes of sobbing gul stopped crying feeling her father's warmth. But her tears socked Arnav's t-shirt.
Gul tossed her head towards Khushi who was sitting beside Arnav but on the floor holding gul.
"Baby papa ko miss kar raha tha?"
Gul made a puppy face as if she understood what Khushi said.
"papa naughty hai?"
gul immediately pouted and was about cry hearing her father's name.
"na na mera bachha, nahi rotey hai.
Gul stretched her arms asking Khushi to take her in her arms. Khushi immediately picked her up in her arms.
Misha witnessed each and everything about gul and Khushi. How gul was responding to Khushi, how Khushi made her stop crying. How she spoke to gul and how gul wanted to be in khushi's arms.
Misha came and touched khushi's shoulders "Khushi take her out, she will be fine. I am here with bhaiya, if the doctors give any report I will let you know".
Khushi nodded in approval and was about to go out of the room when she saw another female standing near the door.
Her face looked familier. She has seen her before. Isnt she the lady I met today in the morning?
The lady came near her and handed over gul's bottle to Khushi and smiled at her. "Hi! Khushi ji I am stella, Gul's nanny. Do you remember me? We met today in the morning."
Khushi did not know why but she was happy to know that stella is gul's nanny.
Khushi returned a smile back to her.
Gul was almost in the verge of sleeping, her eyes falling droppy, she rested her head on khushi's breast and sucked down her cereal from the bottle.
"Mrs. Raizada! Mrs. Raizada!"
Khushi was feeding gul when she heard someone was calling Mrs. Raizada.
"Ma'am I am talking to you" a nurse came and patted khushi's back.
Khushi's eyes widened hearing the nurse addressing her has Mrs. Raixzada. She felt a little weird. Why everyone was held bend on thinking her as Arnav's wife? What made them feel like that, she thought?
I am not ..(she was cut off by a male voice)
"Hi! where is ASR?" she heard a male voice enquiring about Arnav.
P.S Chalo ASR has saved khushi as per what you all wanted. but non of you wanted me to save Arnav
Khushi in RM
