Episode 17: Suchi received a message and told chidu, “Looks like Raju anna (Her assistant) is waiting down and I am leaving now. Catch you later.” Chid vilas : “Hey, thanks for the blood donation. It was an emergency and this would be really helpful to the family da” Suchi : “mention Not Chidu”, she smiled with her trade mark smile. Though it was usual for Chid vilas, any guy will flatter for that gorgeous smiling face. After Suchi left, Chid vilas sat on his table exploring his phone. He went to google photos and checked few old pics . It contained the old pictures of Suchi and Chid vilas with their families. Suchi was cute showing her teeth in all pictures. She was showing horns at his back for most the pictures they have taken. Most of her pics were in modern dresses with tight stretchable jeans, short tops showing her slim figure. He kept looking at her beauty and just kept his hand on the photos admiring her beauty. It did not have any lust rather a care and an affection for a child hood friend. Since they have been planned to get married soon, he just started to like her and was making his mind to accept the marriage. They both understood each other well as good friends but of opposite character. Chid Vilas was a quiet, calm and composed guy devoted to his profession. He was soft at his heart and always had a helping tendency towards needy people. Suchi was equally good in terms of helping others, but was of opposite in her character to Vilas. Her presence will be known wherever she is, all time naughty chatter box, takes and decides things on her own. She always wants to be a free bird with no boundaries to herself. She did not like anyone controlling her. She was adamant at times in deciding on what she needed in her life and one such thing was her profession. She respects the person she like , she will at least try to listen to them at times. She always believed in the present which helped her to come out soon of her father’s death that created a trauma for her mother. She always looked forward for new adventures in her life. She too helps people in needy with regard to people who needs assistance for legal help and also helps people for their cases without any fees for them. Chid vilas called Suchi and she did not pick the call. He thought to himself that she should have by this time reached court and have put her mobile on silent. Hence, he left her a message to call back and looked at the clock. It was time and he started for his usual rounds to see his patients. He went to the ICU to see Chakravarthy sleeping peacefully. He checked with the Nurses and advised for his movement to normal ward for a day post which he can get discharged. He left to visit the normal ward patients and further packed to leave the hospital. He received a call from Suchi on the noon. Suchi : “Hey, you had messaged me to call me,… Anything urgent, we met in the morning only na” Chid Vilas: “Nope . Just like that called you. Will you join me for a walk in the morning tomorrow? I will come and pick you from home at 6 da” Suchi : “Doctor Sir, you do your regular workouts and walking is usual for you. But at 6 AM, it’s too much… no no… Its is 10 much for me.” Chid Vilas : “Hey Suchi, come on, I have never called you earlier. Just felt like spending some time with you ma.. Please…..” Suchi : “Aiyoo…. I can’t commit to you, still I will try? Post lunch, I have 3 more cases in the noon .I am sorry chidu. Please don’t force me “, and she hung the call. Though it was usual for him and he knew about suchi’s character very well. Chid vilas was not sure as why he wanted to spend time with her. He was making himself ready for marriage as his mother was also nagging him for his marriage with Suchi. He thought to himself as he has spent so many years with Suchi and they know each other well. As a friend, nothing can stop them being sharing their care and affection towards each other. But as a life partner, both of them though they like each other, they were not convinced with in themselves to get married. It was a common thought between them. In fact, they both have the similar thought that Good friends can become life partners, but whether this will work out for between them or not, they were unsure within themselves. Chandrika shifted her father to an individual sophisticated deluxe suite room with all facilities and Sivakami was freed by giving a room for herself. Charu looked at the room and said, “Vow, this looks like a house akka.” Chandrika : “yes, this is a Suite room and facilities are good here dear” Sivakami : “Room should be very costly it seems.” Chandrika : “Chitti, It’s all his earnings and he deserves the best treatment to be provided.” Sivakami turned her face and was irritated to see her son Chiranjeevi exploring mobile again which peaked her anger. She pulled the mobile from him and yelled at him , “Again and Again this mobile. Don’t you care for your father? Why did I bring you here? Do you exactly know about his health condition or not now. Look at her, being a girl child, how she is taking care of her father?” As it was a suite room in the hospital, it had a small visitor room in the front followed by Patient room with all facilities. Chandrika was managing the bed for chakravarthy and she slowly explained him his condition. She held his hands and cupped her palm with chakravarthy palm. She gave him a very positive hope and confirmed him that his condition is a temporary. Chakravarthy could not resist controlling his tears which made Sivakami also broke down. She cursed herself in her mind for being rude with him. Though she hated him for his care shown towards Chandrika and always fought with him, she wanted him to be healthy and want him to be for her family alone. But when she saw Chandrika, she cursed herself to have brought his son Chiranjeevi like this. Nandita came to see Chandrika and Chakravarthy along with his father and Mother. Sivakami was introduced to them for which she did not give a good response which Chandrika already expected. Nandita’s Father : “Sir, how are you doing now? Poor Chandrika, she suffered a lot, but a brave girl. She was not sure of what to do until she got a clear picture of your health condition.” Chakravarthy was proud of his daughter and held her hand as she was sitting next to him in the bed with a smile Nandita’s father continued, “Don’t worry, you will be alright soon. Sorry, I could not come earlier due to some important cases.” Chakravarthy: “It’s Ok. Actually, I have to thank you to allow Nandita to stay with chandrika during this hardship time for my daughter.” N Father: “It’s ok. No need to mention and I am happy for my daughter and for the importance that she gave to her friendship.” Nandita :”That’s Ok Uncle. I have time and I can’t just leave my friend in this state and with no people around her. I can’t forgive myself if I could not able to avoid my travel.” Chandrika just hugged Nandita and said “Hey, thanks a lot for being with me. It was the biggest moral support for me.” Chakravarthy was sitting in an elongated position with his bed stretched upwards trying to give some few movements with a smiley ball for his left hand that show his confidence to become normal soon. Nandita father just turned around and told him, “I Have arranged for a new person.” And chakravarthy face changed and he raised his eye brows towards Sivakami. Sivakami noticed it and she was arranging things casually as if she did not notice anything. Nandita’s Father understood and continued, “Actually, We are also leaving with Nandita to US in next 10 days and we might take a couple of months to return back. If you need any help, I can arrange for some person for you to help you by all means.” Chakravarthy was convinced with his words and said, “Any time, I will call you any help. Thanks again for everything.” They spoke few common things and started and Nandita also started with their parents while Doctor came for his usual rounds which was none other than Chid Vilas. Chid Vilas : “So, Mr.Chakravarthy, how are you doing now?” Chakravarthy: “yes, am good doctor. I am continuing all the exercises and want to come back to normal soon.” Chid Vilas : “That’s the spirit and you look confidence too now. Am sure, with this attitude, you will be back to normal soon sir.” Chid Vilas looked at Chandrika, “So, it’s good to see him like this”, while chakravarthy intruded and said, “it’s all because of her only”, which did show his affection towards her. Chid vilas looked at her and he got a docile feel. He felt a complete difference in her by all means in her outlook, hair style and she was simply beautiful with a homely face. He stared at her for a moment and moved his eyes aside understood the situation. Chid Vilas : “Sir, she is a calm girl, but was very smart. Being alone, she actually followed up on all your medical treatment, it’s progress, finances and her care and follow up made you brought to this state. You will be alright soon.” Chakravarthy was feeling proud again for his daughter and sighed him thanks while a tear drop fell from his eyes. He gave the next set of instructions until he stays in hospital for next one week. Nandita also left along with her parents while Chandrika took a leave along with him to send her off. Chandrika : “All your packing is already over right. Do you have anything left for your shopping?” Nandita : “Yeah, as I had planned already, Not much pending da. Only, few foodies which I packed had to be re packed. But I have some shopping to be done with Charu. I am picking her tomorrow for a sight seeing and shopping. Ask her to be ready tomorrow in the morning when I come and pick her up.” Chandrika : “Come on! When did you plan this?” Nandita :” It’s already planned. Poor girl, I will show her the city walk of life.” Chandrika : “ Fine, she also got a chance now. “ Nandita: “Hmm… I also saw a spark in Doctor face when she saw you. You noticed that”, she teased her. Chandrika : “Come on Nandu, he is the doctor treating my father and don’t talk rubbish.”, she stopped her with a harsh face. Nandita :”Ok, Madam. Sorry”, she mimed by closing her mouth and you saw that girl who came to hospital for blood donation and she also seems to be linked with doctor.” Chandrika diverted the topic , “ Hmm.. It’s none of our business da and let’s look at our priorities now.” Nandita smiled and waved bye and joined their parents who were waiting in the corridor for her.
