PART 3 : Truly Madly Deeply


heena said.."arman i had asked for food for you......."
"im not hungry.."
"i didnt ask...im telling you...you have to eat or else..."
"i told you im not hungry..."
"i told you too...if you dont  eat  properly it will create more problem..youre a doctor yourself...why are you doing this?she was serious now.youre test show nutrient defieciency..if you dont have enough food then prepare yourself for a series of injections...i dont mind..your choice."she was angry now.
thought of injection didnt appear welcome to arman.he had a lot of accidents.the scary part was not getting injured,for him it was that sharp pointed thing.even after being a doctor , what more to say,even the thought of injections scared him.he decided taking food was better...
"toh kaha hain?"
"what?"she asked angrily.
"hmm ....... khana..

"sister stella will bring it "
she couldnt help but laugh at his answer.what a kid he was!!she never thought the khadoos she knew as the doctor arman mallik was scared of injections.now she got a reason to tease him.but not now..she can use it later.now his health was important.leg pulling can wait.she had asked sister stella to bring food for arman.
her pager beeped.."emergency...but arman dont think that you can escape without having food.....if i get to know that you have skipped any meals..then mujse bura aur koi nahi hoga..."
"i wont..".when she turned to go...he added to himself..".let you know...."
"tum ne kuch kaha ?"
"nahi toh...."
she left.after sometime sister came with his food.he had lost his appetite.he somehow finished half of it and kept the bowl aside.he wasnt fond of hospital food.well no one truly is.he decided to sleep because heena had snatched his files and laptop away after he had handled the necessary details to ridhima.he tried to get it back but since he was weak he failed.now rest karne ke alawa aur koi raasta nahi tha uske paas

      ***************************************************
ridhima was working hard for the conference.two days seemed like running much faster than usual.evening before they were to go for the conference,dr.keerti's baby fell ill.her baby needed her.she didnt knew  what to do.hearing about this arman said that he will go.he was talking to her in phone trying to convince her to let him go.
"arman apka tabiyat karab hain...mein yeh allow nahi kar sakta...."
"plz dr.keerti..youre baby needs you..i can handle..trust me...dont worry.im fine.
after a lot of persuation she allowed him.
"dr.keerti.....can i ask you a favour?"
"what is it?"
"hmmmmm.........its...i dont want dr.ridhima to come with me............i can handle it alone...it will create more problems....plz dr.keerti........and i dont think dr.sidhant .....'
before he could complete she replied.."we have to be professional  dr.arman.keep youre personal issues away ...........three of you should work together in the same hospital.      you may have to work together...."
"dr.keerti..aap jante hein na pichle baar lonavala jaane ke baad kya hua tha.....phir bhi......i dont want anymore problems in their marriage due to me..i dont want her to......"
"you still care for her ..dont you....."he was silent..."i dont have have any one else to care for...."it was a whisper..dr.keerti could feel his pain.
"but arman im not letting you go alone.she will assist you............aur baat dr.sidhant ki..he should have to trust his wife..in relationship thats important.if dr.ridhima has any problem i'll deal with it...you take care of yourself..and arman?
"yes maam"
"thanks"
"dont say thanks maam.its my duty...."
"phir bhi..."
"kuch nahi....ab mein rakhti hun..."
after talking with keerti went to meet heena.she refused to disacharge him at first.but somehow he convinced her and left for his home.he got a cab since he was weak .
                       sid was furious.he didnt want arman and ridhima to go together.ridhima got angry at sid's behavior.she said"you think im going on a field trip with him?sid we have our responsibility.its our duty.i didnt choose to go with him...it is not planned.he was suppose to go with dr.keerti..but then he got sick.......so i was called..but now dr.keerti's baby is ill...so she cant go...thats why now we have to go together...............you should have understood that.no...... but you wont....tum sirf apne baare mein sochta hun na.....and most imporatantly you dont trust me ...........do you think that i would go and have fun with my exboyfriend as you put it......you think that im that desperate?agar hum doosre ka saath nahi diya toh how will our relationship will work sid?i dont think that you have  a problem with arman..youre problem is me..you dont trust me...she was tired of explaining things to him..sid said."its not that....
i trust you......but i dont trust him....he will try to get you back......i know what he is trying to do.....beemar hone ka fayda bhi udayega..........he wants you back.....he still loves you....."
"enough sid....enough...............arman doesnt even talk to me....woh nahi chahte ki mein uska saath chaloon.......he doesnt love me.......not any more.........and woh itna nahi gir sakta........he respected my decision when i choose you sid........plz respect him for that...i know you cant be friends...but plz dont make  a big deal out of this.......
finally sid allowed her half heartedly.she went to her room.the truth was that she had heard arman taliking to keerti on the phone..hearing this she immediately left from there.she hadnt heard what arman said later.dr.keerti had called her after sometime to tell her about the conference.
                                    ******************************
arman and ridhima left for delhi by the evening flight.arman closed his eyes after the take off and went into a deep sleep.ridhima busied herself in  her laptop.after sometime she noticed that arman was shivering.so she asked for a blanket and covered him properly.when she covered him,her hand brushed against his cheeks and ridhima immediately held her hand back coz his touch felt exactly like it used to be.it send shivers down her spine.she still felt goose bumps.arman never knew what he was doing unknowingly to ridhima.he was in deep sleep.ridhima couldnt take her eyes off his face.he was still looking cute even after being sick.he was pale and considerably thin.but his face screamed aloud of its handsome features.how she missed his dimples???she thought sadly about his cute antics to gain her attraction...their first encounter at the basketball court...........their cute fights........she smiled remembering how he yelled"mummy bachao aunty dara rahi hai"....he was such a prankster......she fought an urge to hold his face in her palms and tell him that she loved him....how she cant stay without him........she slightly extended her hand towards him..but stopped in mid air when she saw her wedding ring.......that brought her to reality.she was no more his basket......she was ridhima modi........ridhima sidhant modi.....and it hurt.............
