OS : FROZEN . . . Part 5

March 9, 2012

Arnav burst into the RM…
Everyone was in the lounge and they immediately stood up…
“Chote, what happened? Where is Khushiji?”
“SHUT UP! EVERYONE JUST SHUT UP!”
They were all in shock at his attitude…Nani started to speak…
“Chote…what is…”
“I SAID…SHUT. UP!” His eyes weren’t his own…they held raging fire…his body was shaking with caged anger…
“WHERE. IS. SHYAM.”
They all looked at each other, and before they could answer Arnav yelled again…
 
“I SAID, WHERE IS HE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Anjali was in tears, “Chote, he gave Khushiji a lift to her house…you know that…you went to pick her up…and Shyam, he hasn’t returned home yet…what is this all about? Where is Khushiji?”
Arnav was trying to hold it together…
He shut his eyes…his thoughts going a mile a minute…
“How do i tell them…what do i say…”
His mind was in pieces…he wanted to collapse on the floor and cry his heart out for his wife…but his eyes shot open…
“NO…he will pay…” and he turned his heel and stormed out, completely ignoring the cries and questions of his family…
He got in his car and drove to the river…where he found Khushi…he braked fast and jumped out of the car rushing down to the river’s edge…
He wanted to die, but more than that, he was out for blood…
His phone started to ring…
He picked up without saying a word…
“Arnav…you’ll never find me…but I take it you found her…”
“you…I am going to MAKE YOU PAY FOR THIS! How could you do this to her!!!!! If you loved her like you claimed WHY!!! She was innocent! She died thinking I hated her! And this is ALL YOUR FAULT! Mark my words…YOU WILL REGRET THIS NIGHT!”
Shyam just laughed as Arnav hung up…
As soon as he disconnected, his phone rang again…
Arnav saw that it was the hospital…and overcome with sorrow, he threw his phone into the river…
“HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN!!!!!!!!!!!” he fell to his knees….”she was perfect…she was mine…AND NOW THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE LAST THING SHE SAID WAS THAT I WOULDN’T COME FOR HER!”
His screams were echoing across the river…
His bitter cries pierced the night sky…
He knew the hospital was only calling for him to finalize everything…but his heart couldn’t take it…his heart was refusing to believe that she was gone…images of her lifeless body flashed in his mind…he clutched his chest furiously…
“She has my heart! I can’t live if she doesn’t live!….I need to see her…she can’t be dead…” hearing that word come out of his mouth in association with Khushi made him keel over in pain…
“NO, I WON’T LET THIS END THIS WAY! I CAN’T!”
Feeling delirious with pain he dashed to his car and sped back to the hospital…
…………………
The heart monitor started beeping. . .
The doctors immediately attached a ventilator to Khushi and started checking her…
Her pulse was faint…but it was there…
“Go find him! Call him back NOW!” yelled one Doctor…
The security guards bolted after Arnav but he had already disappeared…
“I’m sorry Doctor, we can’t find him…”
“Then call him! Search for him! His wife is not dead!”
“yes sir! We’ll keep calling…”
The Doctors checked Khushi’s blood pressure…it was still   low but her heartbeat was getting more regulated…She couldn’t suck air into her lungs by herself yet so they made sure the ventilator stayed on…and kept her under constant observation…
“Have you reached Mr. Raizada?!”
…………………..
Arnav felt like his flesh was being torn off his body…he’d never known such pain…his mind was agonizing over Khushi’s death, but his heart was demanding that she was still alive…He pulled up to the front of the hospital…he looked towards the door…flashbacks of Khushi being wheeled in, the heart monitor stopping, her pulse flickering against his lips, and the feel of her limp body…he let out a sharp cry…
He almost drove off when he felt it, Dhak Dhak Dhak Dhak…
He shook his head…”No…this is NOT the end…”
He darted into the hospital…
He ran straight room where he had left Khushi…only to find her gone…
He was aching for her and started yelling, “someone tell me where my wife is RIGHT NOW!”
The Doctor saw him and rushed to his side…”Mr. Raizada, we’ve been trying to contact…”
“Where is she!”
“can you please listen…”
“I SAID WHERE IS SHE!!!!!”
“Mr. Raizada…”
“YOU WANT ME TO TEAR YOU APART! TAKE ME TO MY WIFE!!!!”
The doctor, seeing that he wasn’t going to get through to him, ushered him around the corner to one of the intensive care rooms…
Arnav’s breathing was unstable…he kept looking round trying to find where they’d taken her…
The doctor took him to a room and quickly pushed him in so that Arnav would be jolted into realization…
Arnav was angrily shoved into a dark room…he almost turned back to swing at the Doctor but froze when he heard soft beeping sounds from nearby…he was terrified to look…The doctor understanding the extreme pain he was in, held Arnav’s arm and turned him around…
His world stood still.
Time stopped.
“Khushi…” he breathed…with tears raining down his face he lunged forward to the bed touching her, holding her hand…kissing her skin
“oh my God, oh my God…you’re alive…oh God…i thought…i thought…”
“We’ve been trying to reach you…the second you told her you were in love with her , her pulse started, but you had already made a run for it…we tried to call you…”
Arnav broke down and let it all out…his fear, his anger, his remorse…The Doctor put a hand on Arnav’s shoulder and tried to console him…he knew the husband, or family went through just as much as his patients…
“what…how…” Arnav needed answers…
“We don’t know how…but what we do know is that she’s stable, but not out of danger yet…her heartbeat is regular, but she can’t breathe on her own yet…the hypothermia has constricted her throat, and crushed her lungs making it hard for her to draw breath…”
Arnav couldn’t bare to hear this…
“we will know more when she wakes up…”
His heart started to beat furiously…
“WHEN she wakes up? Not IF?”
“No, she will wake up…but we don’t know when…hypothermia can make the heart appear redundant, but once the body temperature has regulated it needs time to restart…we now just need to wait…”
“I’m not leaving.”
“we weren’t going to ask you to sir…”
And the doctor excused himself leaving Arnav alone with Khushi…
