Now back to the storyâ¦â¦
Abhi after a few hours returned home while his parents and Pragya were having their dinner in the dining area. Ram patting Shanti maâs shoulder asked âWho is that entering our house?â Shanthi ma âCanât u see? He is your son!â Ram âBut why is he wearing helmet in house?â Shanthi ma â It seems that he donât want to see us and thatâs why he is doing this!â Abhi was still in the living area and was talking to Robin something. Pragya, What is this instead of talking to us he is talking to Robin! And what is he trying to do by wearing helmet? Aunty and Uncle are just making fun of him instead of calming him down from his anger!
Shanthi ma sensed that Pragya was feeling tensed. Shanti ma âPragya! Just donât get tensed for this and we will talk to him slowly about everything! U know right slow and steady wins the race!â
Abhi walked up the steps and headed to his room as for Robin, he came to the dining area. Robin âAbhi sir said that he is wearing helmet not because he donât want to see anyone here!â Shanti ma âThen why is wearing that?â Robin âAs he donât want anyone here to see him!â Ram âOh so itâs the other way ah?â Both chuckled hearing that and Pragya was still worried. She did smiled with them but her smile was filled with worriesâ¦.The worries of himâ¦..Robin then went to the kitchen to carry on with his work.
Shanti ma âPragya! You are just getting worried too much and just remember that whatever he is doing is out of anger and some frustration. Once he knows everything he would be your everything and I am very sure about that!â Pragya hearing that was emotional and she hugged Shanti ma with the hopes that he would be her everythingâ¦..
Ram interrupted âCan we continue our dinner now?â Shanti ma with a frown said âWhat are you saying when bahu is feeling sad? U are always like thisâ¦.â Pragya then giggled hearing to their argument that further continued. Ram âLook now she is back to normal so now we can stop our argument! And start our dinner!â Shanti ma too giggled at her husbandâs antics to make Pragya cheerfulâ¦..
Pragya, I still havenât asked Aunty for help. Should I ask her help or try myself to tell him everything? Let me try againâ¦Hopefully he listens to me.
In Abhiâs room:
Abhi, What the hell?? Why am I hearing so many laughter sounds? That too so loud! They donât even have the concern for me for what I ask Robin to tell them! And my parents are they also crazy because of Pragya? Damn this helmet let me take off this first! Itâs so irritating too!
Abhi didnât locked his door and after a while someone knocked the door and in anger he just said âItâs not locked! Just come in!â Pragya entered the room and Abhi was just fuming with anger looking at her. Abhi remained silent and looked away from her. Pragya âDonât do like thisâ¦.I mean if u are angry just shout at me or even slap me but donât kill me with your silenceâ¦.Itâs very painfulâ¦..â Abhi turned to look at her and found her eyes welled up in tears. Abhi âStop your drama! I need to sleep now as I am super tired and I donât have the time to listen to your speech!â Pragya âI know u are angry on all of us but did u think why all of us are doing this? I am trying to tell u that I know u and why canât u understand that?â Abhi âYes all of u are doing this to make me married to u! And u know me as u followed me! U donât have to talk as if there is something else for all this drama!â Pragya âNo! I know you from the time u know Tanya!â Abhi was shocked hearing that and he walked closer to Pragya. Abhi âWhat are u blabbering?â Pragya âLike how much she is close to your heartâ¦.That much she is close to my heart from the moment I know herâ¦..â Abhi with a lot of questions running in his mind asked, âWhat are u telling?â Pragya âI am telling the truth! I am going to tell everything now so please listenâ¦..â Abhi looked at her intently and made her sit on the couch and he too sat beside her to listen to the truth of their lives.
Flashback mode beginsâ¦..
A couple of years back when Abhiâs mother was facing some illness he made her to get home rest by arranging for a doctor to regularly check on her. That doctor is Tanya. She was a loving person who cared for Shanti ma more like her own mother rather than like a patient. Abhi really liked her care towards his mother. He used to secretly look at her taking care of his mother from outside the room or he used to talk to Shanti ma in the presence of Tanya just to look at her and admire her secretly. Tanya too realized his secret admiration. She was loving it and she could feel he was genuine in his admirationâ¦.She could feel love in his eyesâ¦.That made her felt that she should talk to him. Shanti ma realized Abhiâs change in attitude whenever Tanya is around and she also decided to talk to Abhi about this.
Shanti ma âAbhi! Come and sit beside meâ¦â Abhi âWhy ma? Do u want anything?â Shanti ma âHaan! I want a bahu for this house!â Abhi blushed hearing that and Shanti ma â No need to be so shy Abhi! I know u like Dr. Tanya and I also like her! But why are u not talking to her?â Abhi â Ma! You know I like her?â Shanti ma âHaan itâs so obvious when u are making excuses to talk to me when she is around and then always looking at her as if u are lost in her!â Abhi âMa I will talk to her but I felt like I should know more about her as in all her likes and dislikesâ¦.and then I would propose her one day by impressing her with what she likes!â Shanti ma â Wow! I didnât know that my son has so much of thoughts for proposal itself!â Abhi again blushed badly and hugged Shanti ma for her supportive words for his first loveâ¦â¦â
As days passed, Abhi gradually talked to Tanya. Tanya too liked talking to him. But she felt all his talks were only with How are you and how was the dayâ¦..She was getting impatient at Abhiâs pace of talking to herâ¦..
Then one day:
Tanya âAbhi! I need to talk to u!â Abhi âRegarding Ma?â Tanya âNot really itâs about usâ¦.â Abhi with a smirk âAbout us?â Tanya âYes! Itâs getting late and I have to talk about thisâ¦.Tonight 7 pm? At my house?â Abhi âAt your house? Are u sure?â Tanya âThen where else do u want to meet?â Abhi âI message u the place and we shall meet there! Is it ok? Donât worry it wonât be that dark!â Tanya was surprised hearing that âHow does it matter if itâs dark or not?â Abhi âI thought u donât like darkness!â Tanya gave a puzzled looked making Abhi smiled broadlyâ¦.Abhi âSee u later!â Tanya nodded her head in response and he walked passed herâ¦..
Tanya, How did he know that I donât like darknessâ¦.Thatâs something that I never expected. He smiled too much today as if he is planning something strange. His smile is very suspicious todayâ¦..But I have to talk to him about us.
Tanya reached the place that he had mentioned to meet her. Abhi was also there. Tanya â Itâs a nice place thoughâ¦.with bright lights and lots of flowers decorated around the entranceâ¦.Do u thought that I am asking u for a date or what?â Abhi with a smile said âNot reallyâ¦.but I thought u liked bright lights and flowersâ¦..so ya thatâs why I made this preparationsâ¦.â Tanya with a puzzled look, Why does he always have thoughts about my likes and dislikesâ¦.Abhi âSo u are here right?â Tanya âHuh?â Abhi âCome back here! You said u want to talk something about us!â Tanya âI am here only and ya what I want to tell isâ¦.I think u like me?â Abhi âYes of course who would not like a great doctor like u who cares her patients like her own family members!â Tanya âNot in that senseâ¦I meanâ¦.â Abhi with a smirk âThen in what sense u want to know that how I like u?â Tanya, why is he making it difficult for me? Why canât he say that he just like me!
Abhi âTanya! Can I tell u something else? I like u and I also have thoughts about u at all timesâ¦..â Tanya âThoughts about me at all times?â Abhi moved closer to her and held her hands making her slightly nervous. Abhi âWhenever I have thoughts of you, then I will ask my heartâ¦. are u the one giving me this thoughts or is it my mind? Then my heart replies I am only giving you the feeling to remind you the thoughts again and again but your mind is already fully filled with those thoughtsâ. Tanya was speechless and she didnât know how to respond to itâ¦..
Abhi âRespond Tanya! You shouldnât be shocked at this moment!â Tanya âIâ¦.it means u like me!â Abhi âYes thatâs why my mind is always filled with your thoughts!â She hugged him hearing that as it was this moment that she was waiting all the while from the moment she met Abhi.
Thatâs how Abhi and Tanya like each other and loved each other. Their love was full of craziness with teasing each other and always caring for each other more like friends. Very soon Abhiâs parents knew about this and they were in the plans of arranging their marriage as soon as possible. And thatâs when the tragedy happenedâ¦â¦.
Abhi âI will miss u Tanya! I donât want to go but u are just insisting me to go for the business trip!â Tanya âYou are business man and not only my lover! Did u get that?â Abhi with a pout âYes I know but I just like noâ¦.love to be your lover!â Tanya hugged him and said âAbhi! You are still like a kid! And wait I have brought for you somethingâ¦.â Tanya opened her handbag and passed a gift box to him. Abhi âWhatâs in this?â Tanya âOpen it when u reach thereâ¦just a small gift and hope u like it!â Abhi âOf course I would love it!â Tanya âEven if u donât like it then u have to tell me! Donât just keep on say u love anything that I give for my sake!â Abhi âI love u and whatever u give me will only make me love it!â Tanya âOh god! Ok enough of this and get going nowâ¦..â
Abhi went to London for his business trip and once he reached there, he got the shock of his life when he heard that Tanya had passed away from a car accident. He was shattered to the coreâ¦.He rushed back to India but before that all her final rituals were done and that made him even more shattered.
Abhi, I shouldnât left India in the first placeâ¦.If not she would not have faced that accident just right after my departureâ¦.Why Tanya u left me like this without even giving the chance to fulfill your likesâ¦.Your likes to be part of my family and meâ¦..Your likes to be a mother to our child! Why? Whatâs the hurry for u to leave me like this? U never even told me about your family properly in all these days that u were with me! Why? Now how would I even know who was your family when u are not around?
He was crying until his eyes were dried of emotions and feelingsâ¦.With that years passed and he slowly made himself distanced from emotions and most importantly loveâ¦â¦He didnât want his parents to worry about him so he asked them to leave India for few years and asked his dad to take care of the business there. After Tanya left, he didnât want to leave India anymoreâ¦â¦
Abhi knew Tanya had a family which had a lot of complicationsâ¦.and she never talked about them. She always wanted to be part of Abhiâs happy family. And Abhi was determined to give that wish of hers and made her filled with happiness but unfortunately fate didnât help him.
Pragya was actually Tanyaâs step sister and thatâs how they are related. As Pragya was a heart patient, Tanyaâs heart was transplanted to Pragya to make her aliveâ¦.
Abhi was motionless hearing that Pragya was Tanyaâs sisterâ¦.Pragya âI know itâs hard to believe but I am telling the truthâ¦.even Aunty and Uncle know about thisâ¦.â Abhi looked at Pragya and asked âYou are carrying her heart?â Pragya nodded her head in response while cryingâ¦.Abhi âThank u for making her heart alive in you!â Pragya âI should always thank her for giving me a life like thisâ¦â Abhi âI am sorry for misunderstanding you but still I canât and wonât be able to love uâ¦.I am really sorry about that!â Abhi wiped his tears and Pragya was looking lost in a heartbreak from his wordsâ¦.Pragya âBut why? She even told me during her last days that it would be better if I was part of your lifeâ¦.What I feel for u is actually not meâ¦.itâs her heart that is beating for your loveâ¦.â Abhi âI know and I can understand everything nowâ¦.but stillâ¦.â Pragya âWhat is bothering u?â Abhi âLeave me alone for a while Pragyaâ¦.Pleaseâ¦.â Pragya âwhy?â Abhi emotionally looking into her eyes pleaded âPlease Pragyaâ¦Leave me aloneâ¦â Pragya couldnât stand the pain in his eyes and words and left from the roomâ¦.
Pragya, What is bothering him to accept me? I even told him that it was also Tanyaâs wish of him to be part of my life but still he is like thisâ¦.Why is this so?
Abhi, I know that it will hurt u knowing that I am still not accepting u after knowing the truth but nobody can understand my painâ¦..The pain only I know and the others canât understandâ¦â¦Pragya! U are carrying not her heartâ¦.you are actually carrying her heart that belongs to meâ¦..Belongs only to meâ¦.My sense of belonging to her is now only defined by the heart u are carryingâ¦..
So why is he still not accepting Pragya? Is there anything else that he is hiding from Pragya? Is it related to Tanya or something else? Letâs see that in the upcoming updates!
Pragya âWhat are u doing?â Abhi âI also donât know..I am trying to see what I am doing! U can help me if u want but no touching!â Pragya, huh? How to help him in this without touching him? I feel likeâ¦.ok now I donât know what to do with him!!!
I am uploading this on Saturday evening as I have a lot of work and assignments to do on Sunday! So hope it comes tonight or tomorrow morningâ¦Hope this update had clarified some of your doubts……
