She walked along the corridor with the help of a limping stick. The pain across her recovering wound reflected on her distressed face. Waiting for her turn at the OPD she recalled through the series of incidents boggling through her mind. How come Akshay waited home skipping the office party? Why did he suddenly turn into a caring partner? Or was our decision of separation, giving him second thoughts? Was he afraid of the social allegations? Or has he really….? Everything was so weird and uncertain.
The receptionist called out her name to visit the doc. She adjusted the stick and limped towards the consulting area. They exchanged warm smiles and the doctor began checking the condition of her plastered leg along with the recent medical examinations reports. After various interrogations, the doctor suddenly asked her,” You have come all alone, where is your husband?” Reva was puzzled and uncomfortable with the question. With reluctance, she cleared her throat to answer,” Actually…he…mmm” Just then there was a knock on the door which interrupted their conversation. “May I come in doctor” spoke the person at the door. The doctor replied positively and Reva turned back to notice Akshay. But he was about to go for a movie with his friends. What made him change his mind?
Akshay greeted them and enquired about Reva’s well being. The doctor informed them about some complications in Reva’s reports which needs to reconfirmed with further detailed tests. Reva was fumbled by the doctor words. What had the destiny planned in for her? Akshay remained calm and asserted in taking up the tests. He supported Reva wrapping his strong yet warm arms around her waist. She was taken aback by Akshay’s gesture. It recalled of their early dating days. So much has changed since then. Reva leaned against the wall and questioned him,” Why are you here? Why this sudden change in attitude? What do you need from me?” He walked supporting her quietly, comforted her into the car and replied back looking into her eyes,” I believe when things are on the verge on breaking down we repair or work on it rather than just discarding them.”
