Kunal asked as soon as he found the doctor coming out,
She is stable, Mr.Malhotra. not much injuries, you brought her on right time and save her, doctor revealed making Kunal sighed in relief.
You can meet her, once after she gain her conscious.
Thanking him Kunal turned back only to come face to face with Professor Kumar, Nandini’s Father, who heard everything doctor said.
Kunal was startle at first but he managed himself, when Nandini’s friend Sheila who was accompanying her father introduce both to each other.
Sir, he is the one who saved Nandini.
Professor watch him for while withstood look then said, I know, and thanks young man for saving my daughter, he patted his shoulder making Kunal smile, don’t thank me, but.. Kunal stopped for a while then blurted out, I love your daughter! He looked at his face to see any reaction but there was nothing, it was same serious and straight as before, leaving a deep breath he continued, I really love your daughter, sir, and want to marry her. Sheila excused herself and went leaving both alone to have a peaceful talk on that matter.
You have dare to confessed your love for my daughter infront of me??
Kunal looks bewilder , believe me, I seriously love her, and can’t think of anyone other than Nandini.
And if I denied to give my daughter hand to you??
Kunal wasn’t prepared for this, he just look at professor but again couldn’t get any hint from his face, I will wait..till you agree, but wouldn’t marry anyone other than Nandini, And..
his throat chocked thinking so.. I won’t able to love other than her…so.. saying so he turned to go but prof.s words stopped him,
Wait, Mr.Malhotra, won’t you hear my answer?
Means, Kunal turned around facing him again, with breaking heart of his,
I will answer you proposal, first tell me, do she loves you? Did she yes to you??
Now this was surprising for him, Kunal himself was having no answer to this question of prof. Though his heart said him yes but mind was not ready to take risk.
I … She… Kunal first time ever stumble with words in his life. He have no answer, he looked down when heard him again.
What!?? Kunal looked shocked hearing him.
What did you know?
I know, she must have not agreed,!?
She hadn’t ? How do you know?? Kunal asked bewildered.
Mr.malhotra, she is my daughter, I know her and everything about her. This time small smile was playing on prof.’s lips with that pride raising in his heart for his daughter.
Kunal have no words, he just gaped at him for a while.
If she said yes, then from my side also, it’s yes only, he patted his shoulder before going away from there to meet doctor.
Kunal looked at the way he went away, and smiled finally seeing ray of hope now.
Nandini slowly opened her eyes, once her blurry eye sight was clear, she looked at him, Kunal!! She exclaimed jerking up in seating position, he at once rushed to hold her but stopped in his steps next moment, seeing her father is also present there.
Nandini saw this, then her gaze went towards her baba , she gulp hard realizing what she did, she was highly embarrassed.
Nandini, how are you feeling now!? Prof. Walked near her, taking seat beside her he holds her pale hand.
I am fine, baba, ! Aap pareshan mat hoiye!
After check up and few queries by doctor, he went out leaving three of them alone.
There was awkward silence in the room for a while which was broken by prof.himself.
I want to talk with my daughter alone, would you plz, Mr.malhotra!? He looked at Kunal who unwillingly went out leaving one last glance to Nandini.
Nandini couldn’t meet her Baba’s gaze she look everywhere than him, laying on the hospital bed.

His voice soften only for his dear and precious daughter, she looked at him astonished, her eyes moisten, small smile lingering on her dried lips, getting caught.
Baba.. she get up and hugs him, he took his daughter in his arms, patting her head while Nandini let out her unshed tears, which she was holding from past.

Nandini pulled out, looking at her father with wide eyes, shinning with tears, he shook his head again telling her the truth, and you won’t find anyone better than him, just said yes to him, he is the gem of a person.
She doesn’t have any words to utter against him, she has always obliged him, he is next to God for her, she couldn’t declined his any wishes or words.
