Arnav and others ran to her. He picked her in his arms with shakey hands and rushed out of the bathroom, inside the room.
He gently laid her to the bed. He shouted at akash to call ambulance fast. Akash immediately called the
“K..khushi…k…k..khushi . P..please…pplease open your
eyes. What have you done dammit?” Arnav said patting her cheek. Anjali was beside arnav , trying to comfort
“Where is the f**king ambulance dammit?” shouted arnav at akash.
“B..bhai they are ariving.”
“I cant wait now” arnav said picking khushi in his arms.
“I cant loose her. I bloody cant loose her” he ran out of the room, down the stairs and out of the house with
akash and anjali following behind.
Akash opened the backdoor of the SUV and arnav laid khush down on the backseat and anjali climped in the
car and put khushi’s head on her lap.
Arnav immediately drove to the hospital with akash on the passenger seat. Arnav drove the car really fast ,Breaking all the traffic rules in between.
They reached the hospital in ten minutes. Arnav immediately carried khushi in the hospital and shouted
for the doctors. Nurses and doctors rushed towards him and he put her down on the strecher and held her
bleeding hand while walking with the strecher.
He left her hand once they reached the operation theator. As the door of the OT closed, arnav staggered back and slide down the wall onto the floor , staring at
the closed doors. Anjali and akash rushed towards him.
“What have i done to her?” whispered arnav.
Anjali heard this and held his face to make him look at her.
“What do you mean by what have you done to her” she asked shaking him because his eyes were not focusing
on anything. He was not there mentally.
“I cant live without her. I will die without her.” he mumbled to himself.
Now anjali was getting worried. She shaked him roughly.”Chotey look at me . Nothing, i mean it . Nothing will happen to her. Do you hear me? NOTHING will happen to her chotey. ” anjali said loudly to bring him back to
Arnav’s eyes focused on anjali’s face and he embraced her and now was on the verge of crying.”D…d…di please tell me nothing will happen to her. I
will die without her. She cant leave me di.” arnav said to anjali . His body was shaking badly.
“Di she CANT LEAVE ME!” he shouted breaking the hug. Standing up he said “I will not forgive myself if something happened to her. I will kill myself , if she
dosent comes back to me. No she cant leave me. She have to come back to me.” he started mumbling to
Anjali was crying now, watching this state of her baby brother. She was just praying that nothing should happen to khushi or else her brother will die. He will not be able to take this blow.
Akash was leaning on the wall,watching his elder brother breaking down in front of him.
Never in his lifetime he had thought that he would ever see his brother, the great ASR breaking down like this.
It was very scary. He knew he have to be the one to handle everything because the one who had been doing
the job of handling things is now not even able to handle himself.
Akash made a call and informed all the guptas about this.
f**king hell! why?why my life is becoming a joke again why dammit?
why have i not able to see the pain in her eyes when I blurted the truth about the reason of our marriage?
The woman who was going to destroy my di’s life, have i not known , would have also succeeded in it , why her
pain bothers me?
Why the look of hurt in her eyes pains me? She was going to committe suicide because she thought
i loved lavanya ? who is she to committe suicide when
she is already a murderer. She has murdered my soul when shewas indulging herself with shyam . She killed my already shattered soul.
Then why the hell? Why in hell it hurts to see her in pain when she only
gave me my biggest pain.
Arnav rested her head on the steering wheel . His phone rang startling him. He picked up his phone not bothering
to see who it was , still engrossed in his thoughts. He jerks back when he heard his di’s worried voice from the phone which immediately got him worried about her.
“Di! what happened? why are you sounding so tensed?”
“Did khushi said something to di. If yes she will not be spared by me today.”thought arnav.
“Chote, come home immediately. I don’t know what happened between you and khushiji , but now i am getting worried about her. She didnt come out of her
room since you have dropped her back home. She hasnt eaten anything and when i went to your room to check
on her, she didnt even replied to me. Now its night chote. She didnt have even her dinner . Come home
‘What the hell now what is all this drama of her. Today i will give her some piece of mind thought arnav.
“I am coming di. Bye.”
He arrived home in rage and straight climed the straight to her room but the door of his room was locked.
“Khushi open the door this instance or it will not be good for you.”
But the reply never came. He banged on the door but still no reply. Now he started getting worried and every
member of the family came to stand in front of the room, all worried about khushi.
Arnav thought of something and heads towards the pool side area and opened the french door and entered the
room. Family following him.But khushi was not there in the room.
At first all were shocked by not finding khushi in the room. Arnav bangs the bathroom door but it opened
with a jerk. The was not locked and what he saw , sucked the breath out his body, his eyes wide in shock, his heart beat stopped , he felt numb.
There was khushi in bathtub in water full of blood and blood flowing out of her writs. Everybody was first shocked.
Nobody moved a muscle. Anjali recovers from her initial shock and whispered khushi’s name that was enough tobbring arnav in reality . He shouted khushi’s name and
ran to her.
“You want to know why i married you , don’t you?”
“I married you because i know that you are having an AFFAIR with Shyam , my jijaji.”
“I married you to protect my sister from you and that shyam.”
“I know that girls like you don’t have a character.”
“That you don’t have a character”
“That YOU don’t have a CHARACTER”
“DON’T HAVE A CHARACTER”
Khushi slumped on the floor of the bedroom, not able to erase these words out of her mind. These words said by
her husband, kept repeating in her mind.
Khushi stood up from the floor with shaky legs. She is not able think properly. She locked the door of the
bedroom and start walking towards her bathroom and open the water tap to fill the bathtub. She lied down in
the bathtub wearing clothes. Then she picked up the scissors from the first aid box.
My family disowned me.
My husband dosen’t trust me.
He thinks i am characterless.
I don’t have any strength in me now. I want to be with my amma babuji…where there will be no pain , away from this world of pain.
I am sorry arnavji for the pain i caused you. I am sorry Amma, Babji, jiji , i have to leave.
I think you will be able to live peacefully if i will be not with you in this world.
She cuts both of her writs with scissors.
So there will be not a chance of her survival.
Why am i not feeling any pain? This is the indication that I am doing the right thing for myself and for others.
She closed her eyes and thought about all the moments she spent with her amma, babuji , buaji and jiji and…
Her eyes opened the moment she thought about arnav .
She looks in the bathtub which is now red in colour because of her blood.
He likes red. Its his favourite colour. I will die covered in his favourite colour.
Her eyes started closing. The last thing she heard before she lost her conscious was opening of the bathroom door and someone shouting her name.
And she lost consciousness…
