"Lets take her to Sanjeevani," Abhi tells them, "Armaan my car is parked right here, can you get it quickly? " he digs into his trouser pocket and throws the keys to him. Then lifting Nikki in his arms, he strides towards the car
The moment Armaan reaches them, he hurriedly, but gently, puts Nikki in the rear seat and sits in beside her. Riddhima also, sits besides Armaan and he stomps on the accelator. Abhi tells Riddhima to call Dr. Keerti to Sanjeevani as she is handling Nikki's pregnancy. After Riddhima speaks to Dr. Keerti, she informs him that Dr. Keerti is at Sanjeevani itself as she had gone for her night rounds and got stuck because of an emergency.
Writhing in pain Nikki screams and biting her lips she moves closer to Abhi, burying her head in his chest. Abhi holds on to her tightly, soothingly caressing her back.
"Nikki, just hang on there! We are about to reach," Riddhima tells her.
"The pain is unbearable," Nikki cries painfully.
"Everything will be fine Nikki," Abhi assures her pushing back her hair. "you've got to be brave." He cups her face and looks tenderly at her.
Nikki can see he was putting up a brave front for her sake. She could sense how worried and panic stricken he was from inside. The cramps were getting unbearable every few moments. Nikki's heart was sinking. She wished she was not a doctor. The doctor in her knew that there was something gravely wrong. She looks up at the man who always stood by her and did everything to make things right for her.
"Abhi,'' she whispers, wincing in between the cramps. "Abhi �.no matter what happens to me, you'll save our baby."
NIKKI!' Abhi yells out in irritation. It was more of a denial.
"Please Abhi," Nikki begs. "Please promise me."
Armaan and Riddhima are choking with tears. They could feel the stress and trauma going through Abhi. How difficult it was for him to answer that!
"Nikki, for god's sake please don't think of such things. You'll be fine," Abhi assures her, there was imploring in his eyes.
"Hey, Nikki, baccha, Abhimanyu is right. Don't think of anything negative," Armaan tells her, keeping his voice light and casual. "Everything will be fine if you keep thinking positive. Remember how you tell this to your patients?" Armaan tries to divert her attention.
"Yeah Nikki," Riddhima tells her trying to help Armaan. "Its just a bit of a stress. I am sure you and the baby will be fine soon."
Abhi was grateful to them, but, it didn't seem to work on a desperate Nikki.
"Abhi please promise me you won't let anything happen to the baby," she adamantly keeps pleading till blackness overtakes her and she faints in his arms. All three are startled. Abhi checks her pulse.
"Pulse is fine," he tells them.
Just then they reach the hospital. Dr. Keerti was waiting for them with the staff and stretcher. "I'll park the car and come," Armaan calls after them.
Nikki is taken to the ultra sound room. Riddhima helps Dr. Keerti in checking Nikki's vitals.
"They all seem fine," they tell Abhi.
Abhi is relieved. "Then it seems the stress has been too much for her to handle. That explains her fainting," he concludes. They agree with him.
Dr. Keerti then starts the sonogram. As she moves the transducer over Nikki's stomach, three pair of eyes watch the monitor with bated breath. They realized even though there was slight bleeding in the placenta, the baby was stable and the placental placement was firm. The heartbeats of the baby were normal too. Abhi shuts his eyes and exhales in relief knowing that the baby was fine.
As Dr. Keerti continues to work on the whole abdomen, her eyes suddenly freeze with shock.
"Oh My God ! No," her frantic voice alarm Abhi and Riddhima.
Opening his eyes Abhi finds, Dr. Keerti pointing at the monitor. What they see, send chills down their spine.
"Oh My God," Abhi panics. "Its ballooning!. If it ruptures we'll loose her!" there was hysteria in his voice.
"Dr. Keerti we need to move her to surgery at once, Just move it!."
"Abhimanyu......." Riddhima was about to speak but he doesn't listen
"Nothing should happen to Nikki, You both understand?" he snaps at them. Understandingly, they nod their heads..
He carries Nikki and runs towards the Operating Room, while Dr. Keerti and Riddhima follow him.
"What's happening?" asks Armaan who was just entering and is stunned to see them running across. He follows them into the Operating Room
"She needs surgery," Riddhima yells out as they walk the corridor of the Operating Room.
"Why?" Armaan asks, but gets no answer as the three enter the Operating Room and the door is shut.
Inside the Operating Room, Dr. Keerti, Riddhima and the supporting staff are hurriedly preparing Nikki for the surgery.
Abhi looks at Nikki. She looked so angelic with her eyes closed, tears well up his eyes. "Only if she knew, the pain and turmoil that he was going through right now!" he thinks. But, he preferred it this way. He rather have himself going through any pain instead of it ever touching her." Lovingly, he runs his hand over her head. Then, taking the cap from the nurse covers her head. Seeing Nikki's abdomen now bared for surgery, he swallows a painful lump.
"Dr. Keerti, my precious lives are in your hands," gripped with emotion, his voice breaks. Dr. Keerti and Riddhima are filled with pain, knowing how hard he was trying to keep himself composed. His whole demeanour was of steel, his jaw was stiff, it was only his eyes and voice that kept betraying his inner anguish.
"I'll give it all I can Abhimanyu. Please hang in there!" Dr. Keerti tells him.
"I trust you completely," Abhi tells her firmly.
After a thought the doctor in Dr. Keerti overtaking her, she tells him, "Dr. Modi, one request. Please don't come in till the surgery is done. I'll come and tell you the status as soon as I can. Please," she urges, "you know its very important,"
Abhi understandingly nods his head. Darting one heart-piercing glance at Nikki, he walks out of the room. A moist-eyed Riddhima also follows him out.
As they walk into the outer area of the O.T., they meet a whole crowd of worried faces. Armaan, Atul, Anjali, Muskaan, Rohit, Sonam, Sid, Simran, Kavita and Jas.
"What happened ? Is Nikki alright ?" Armaan asks them with concern.
"The bleeding?" a worried Kavita asks.
Finding it difficult to utter a word, Abhi shuts his eyes. Placing his hand on the wall nearby, he turns his face sideways, away from them and stares darkly into empty space.
"The bleeding is because there is slight bleeding in the placenta. It's the organ where the baby gets all its nutrients from the mother," she explains for the benefit of the non-doctors. "but the baby is absolutely fine and the placental placement is also firm, So no worries there."
"then why surgery?" Anjali asks.
"We detected abdominal aortic aneurysm," Riddhima tells them with a heavy heart.
"WHAAT?" all doctors gasp with shock.
"We had to operate immediately or else if it ruptures............. " she is unable to continue.
"What does it mean?" a confused Kavita asks them.
"Aneurysm is ballooning of the organ and is fatal if it ruptures. Nikki's was almost on the verge of rupturing. That is why immediate surgery was needed. We just hope Dr. Keerti manages to stop it in time."
"Oh my God," Sonam gasps. "I pray Nikki is okay. And the baby? Will it be fine?" Sonam asks
An uncomfortable Riddhima fidgets with her dupatta . She darts a glance at Abhi. The firm clenching of his jaw and swallowing of painful lumps in his throat indicate how heartwrenching the whole thing was for him.
"Its a very risky surgery," Armaan tells them. "The blood supply to the uterus will be stopped for a short time which means its a very big risk to the baby. The baby can can........." . He chokes and looks away, unable to continue.
"Yeah its too early in the pregnancy to even to have the birth of the baby. If the baby is removed then its sure going to be stillborn. It won't survive," Anjali explains.
The family members gasps with horror. Everyone present had fear and apprehension on their faces.
"I think all of you wait in the waiting lounge. We can't crowd this place." Abhi tells them with a heavy heart. "I'll keep you informed when it is done."
They nod their heads and wearily leave the place.
Armaan, Riddhima and Sid stay back with Abhi.
After few moments overcome with agitation, Abhi paces the place like a restless wild cat. A nurse comes to him with a tray of gauge and medicines, asking him to let her treat the cut on his forearm.
Irritatedly, he brushes it off saying "Just forget it!"
Armaan and Riddhima look at each other. After communicating through their eyes, Riddhima nods her head and takes the tray from the nurse.
Going near Abhi, she tells him softly "Abhimanyu, right now, you need as much as strength you can gather. You also have to keep yourself fit and fine. We don't want any further complications right now, do we?" Abhi looks at her unable to answer. "What answer will we have for Nikki if anything happens to you. The gash looks pretty deep and you've lost a lot of blood already. Please let me treat it."
Reluctantly he nods his acceptance and sits down as Riddhima begins to treat his wound. Seeing the exposed flesh, Riddhima calls out "Sutures," to the nurse. While they were working on his arm, the physical pain did not bother Abhi at all, as much as, he was bothered with fear and anxiety for the two lives who were his heart and soul.
When Riddhima finishes bandaging his arm, he thanks her. Then consumed with anguish and restlessness, he stands up and goes to the door of the operating room.
"God, please let her be okay," he sends up a silent prayer, running his fingers through his hair. He never ever felt so frightened, so helpless, so incapacitated like this before. "Please let both of them be okay," he pleads.
He recollects how exuberant Nikki was talking about the baby a few hours ago.
"I've decided we will have atleast two kids. Two is definitely needed. They will give each other company and I will give all my attention to you!" her enthusiasm rings in his ears and her pleas, "Abhi �.no matter what happens to me, you'll save our baby."
"God! How am I going to face her if anything happens to the baby," he thinks, choking back on the tears. "In the first place, what if anything happens to her? The very thought is so killing!" He sits down and buries his face in his hand.
An assuring hand on his shoulder makes him look up. He sees Armaan looking down at him. Riddhima and Sid are also standing near Armaan, looking consoling down at him
"Everything will be fine!" Armaan assures him.
"Bhai please don't lose hope," Sid sits down beside him. "Nikki Bhabhi will be fine and also the baby."
"I just hope she is okay!" his voice was heavy. Though there were tears glistening in his eyes, his grit managed to keep them suppressed behind. "She has to make it ! She can't let me down!" There was determination in his eyes. However, few seconds later, the same determination once again, helplessly, changes to worry and fear.
Armaan looks at Abhi and tears begin to to cloud his eyes. Here was a man whose guts he always hated. He always wanted to break it. When Abhimanyu Modi was faced with any danger to himself, he looked at it unflinchingly and fearlessly. Yet, today, when faced with the danger of losing the love of his life, his eyes were clouded with immense fear and anxiety. Today his own love has managed to break his spirits.
Armaan could feel his heart ripping apart. This is not what he wished for him. This is not what he wished for his best friend whose own life and the life of her baby, is at risk.
Abruptly, he pulls his hand away from Abhi's shoulder and dropping it on his sides clenches his fists tightly. Abhi looks at him. He can see Armaan's expression change from sadness to anger. There was slight trembling in him because of the ire. With one swift move, he turns and walks towards the door.
"Armaan Stop!" standing up, Abhi calls out firmly to him, but, Armaan ignores him and walks out of the room. Riddhima looks confused at them.
"Riddhima, stop him. He is angry and he is going after Akaash," Abhi tells her.
"B.......But how do you know?"
"Just go and stop him Riddhima," Abhi urges. Riddhima and Sid rush after Armaan
A pall of gloom set in the whole hospital. All the staff were deeply saddened knowing the lives of their bubbly, full of life Dr. Nikita and her baby, were in grave danger. They emphatised with their strict, but, polite and caring boss Dr. Abhimanyu Modi, knowing how much he loved her.
In the waiting room, the mood was equally somber. Kavita, Sonam and Simran had crestfallen faces thinking of the lovely couple and their baby. It was only recently they got close to them and have grown to love them. They were hoping and praying that Nikki and the baby are saved.
Outside the waiting room, Rohit, Atul, Anjali and Muskaan were talking about Abhi, Nikki and her pregnancy. They were exchanging their memories about the first time they came to know about Nikki being pregnant from Abhi and surprised her by decorating her room with tiny teddy bears. They remember how Abhi allowed them to do what they wanted with his room, as long as it made Nikki happy. That was his firm instruction. The normally fire-spewing Abhimanyu Modi, even sat patiently and watched them as they got into a teddy bear fight, making their room look as if it was ravaged by a tornado.
A soft anguished cry erupts from Muskaan who is unable to hide her tears. She recollects how worried Abhi was for Nikki, the night she was attacked at the basketball court. She also remembers how amused she was hearing them fight so fiercely, wishing she could record it and show them that their fight was totally filled with love and concern for the other.
How embarrassed she and they were, when she unwittingly, walked in on them as they were kissing passionately! A pained smile spurts on her face and burying her hand in her face, she cries bitterly, mumbling "they deserve to be happy," A tearful Anjali hugs and comforts her.
Rohit suddenly sees a red-faced Armaan storming towards him.
"Where is he? I want to kill him," he growls vindictively.
"Armaan, what happened?" Rohit asks him in surprise
"Armaan calm down yaar," Atul tells him, holding him around his shoulder.
"Tell me where he is ?" he roars fiercely at Rohit.
At that moment Riddhima and Sid reach there and realize Abhi was right. The rest of the family members also come out of the waiting room.
"Armaan stop, what are you trying to do?" Riddhima tells him.
"I want to kill that guy," Armaan tells her angrily.
Putting a hand on Armaan's shoulder Rohit tells him, "Don't worry Armaan, I'll see Akash pays badly for this. I'll see to it he doesn't get away easily. You calm down." Rohit pats him on the back.
A heartbroken Armaan slumps down onto a bench nearby.
"Look at them," he chokes, his eyes brimming with tears "one is inside fighting life and death and the other is dying outside, hoping and praying, his precious lives are alive."
Everyone present were choking with tears too. Riddhima puts her arms around his neck.
"Armaan I know how you are feeling," She tells him, swallowing a lump in her throat. " We are all feeling the same. But, please calm down. Right now, Abhi needs us and we must not create any more problems for him."
Wrapping his arms tightly around her waist, his cheek pressing against her stomach, Armaan cries bitterly. "I won't be able to bear it, if anything happens to them." .
Watching them, a heartbroken Simran walks away from the waiting room. Sid follows her and tells her to stop. She doesn't listen and finding the exit to the fire escape, she opens it and goes out. Burying her face in her hands she cries bitterly. Sid reaches there and asks why she was crying and she tells him it was all her fault that her Di has landed in this situation.
Putting a consoling arm around her, Sid mollifies her, telling her not to blame herself as she didn't mean any harm to them. She only wanted to see them happy. But, Simran was inconsolable. She continues to sob in his arms and he lets her cry her guilt away. When she is much calmer he takes her back to the waiting room.
Few moments later , after Armaan has calmed down, he, Riddhima, Sid and Rohit go back to the OT.
Just then Dr. Keerti pops her head out.
"Abhimanyu she is absolutely fine, we managed to save her just in time,"
"Thank God" Everyone mutter in relief.
"Can I see her?" Abhi asks.
"We are on the completion process, and will bring her to the recovery room soon. Knowing how worried you are, I just had to come and tell you the news."
"Thanks Dr. Keerti," Abhi tells her gratefully.
"Dr. Keerti, how is the baby doing?" Riddhima asks, the very question, Abhi was dreading to ask.
"Well as of now we can hear the fetal heartbeats and the good news is that the blood was stopped completely for couple of minutes only, so there is a fighting chance for its survival. But........," she pauses looking helplessly at Abhi. "You do know we cannot confirm anything about it as yet."
"I understand Dr. Keerti" Abhi nods his head, with a heavy heart. "You go ahead."
As she goes back, shutting the door behind her, Abhi closes his eyes. His senses had gone numb. He did not know what exactly should he be feeling or what he was really feeling. He didn't know whether he should be joyous for his Nikki being saved or grieve for their baby who may still not make it into the world.
Armaan and Riddhima were going through the same feelings. When they should be happy their friend is safe and out of danger, their hearts were heavily burdened thinking about the baby.
Rohit and Sid go to inform the others about Nikki's condition.
Not wanting to think anything anymore, Abhi goes to the scrubbing area and splashes water on his face and hands. After cleaning and sanitizing himself thoroughly he dons the scrubs, ready to see Nikki. He then sees she was being brought out on a stretcher. He, along with Armaan, Riddhima gather around her. His heart is filled with tenderness watching her so calm and peaceful, unaware of what is happening around her.
"We have still strapped the Fetal Monitor to her" Dr. Keerti tells him. "it will be easy to keep track of the baby's progress. Nikki will gain consciousness soon, the anesthesia should wear off quickly, but, I must warn you, she seems completely exhausted."
Abhi nods his head and follows Nikki into the recovery room.
After the nurses and ward boys leave, Abhi sits beside an unconscious Nikki and stares at her. The tears that had been pent up for so long, begin to flow down.
"Nikki," he whispers, taking her hand in his. "Thank God you are safe or else I don't know what would I have done. I am completely dead without you" Tenderly and lovingly, he caresses her face and plants a kiss on her forehead.
He then looks at her abdomen and thinks of the life inside whose heartbeats he can see on the monitor, but, he does not know how long it will continue beating.
Nervously, he puts his hand over her stomach. He recollects the first time he put his hand at this place when he came to know of the existence of this beautiful creation. He reminisces all the beautiful times, he talked to the baby, seeking solace from it, when he was down, especially when he was upset with Nikki and feeling so soothed and calm. The moments, the times, when a movement from the baby got them so passionately and intimately close. The nights he spent holding Nikki around the abdomen and feeling a sense of pride of having them both in his arms.
"You brought us together baby, you kept us connected right through," he whispers, his voice choking in between "We love you so much. Please hang in there for us. We can't do without you. I won't be able to face your mother if anything happens to you. You've always been there for me before. I desperately need you now. Please don't let me down. Please hang in there for us, Please. We love you!" There was prickling in his throat. He couldn't speak anymore.
Looking at the tears flowing down his cheeks like an never ending stream, Armaan, Riddhima and Dr. Keerti who were peeping through the glassed window of the door were in tears too.
"Abhi," Nikk stirs
"Nikki," Abhi whispers looking into her face. "Nikki how are you feeling?"
"Abhi......I am fine......." Nikki tells him groggily trying to open her eyes..... "but I am feeling so sleepy, I just can't seem to open my eyes."
"Its okay Nikki, you sleep, don't worry,"
Nikki is quiet for few seconds as if she dozed off. She wakes up again and with semi-opened eyes asks him, "Abhi, our baby......is our baby okay?" There was earnestness and panic in her voice.
"Nikki the baby is absolutely fine. You don't worry Sweetheart. Just r elax and sleep" he tells her caressing her forehead.
Dr. Keerti enters with Armaan and Riddhima.
"Nikki are you feeling okay?"
"hmmm........ but I am feeling very sleepy."
As she falls back to sleep, Dr. Keerti checks her vitals again. "Everything seems fine with her, We can now shift her into the room," she tells Abhi.
"Fine, lets shift her then." Abhi tells her.
As the nurse and ward boys enter and proceed with their duties, Abhi walks out with the other three.
"Nikki shouldn't know of the surgery and baby," he tells them "I don't want her to worry over it. It will only increase her stress levels and hamper the baby's chances, even more."
They nod their heads in agreement.
When Nikki is shifted to the room, everyone gather outside. Abhi allows them in small numbers to see Nikki. He is surprised to see Simran hiding behind a pillar a little distance away. He looks enquiringly at Sid.
"She blames herself for all that has happened and is not able to face you," Sid explains, there was sadness in his eyes.
Abhi walks towards the pillar and tenderly puts his hand on Simran's head.
"I am sorry Jeeju, I am really very sorry. Its all because of me this has happened." The tears are flowing down her cheeks.
"Hey, Hey" Abhi soothes tenderly, pulling her into his arms. "Sometimes things are beyond our control. What has to happen, will happen anyways, so don't blame yourself. It isn't your fault at all."
An emotionally choked Simran sobs into his chest while Abhi consolingly pats her head.
After few moments, Abhi tells everyone to leave.
"Its almost 3 am. Nikki is fine and she'll be sleeping right through. I am here. Besides, you guys are leaving today," he says looking from Rohit to Armaan and then to Riddhima.
"Only a stranger like you can talk like that," Armaan tells him irritatedly. "What makes you think we can go, leaving you guys like this?" he admonishes him.
"Yeah, you think we can really enjoy ourselves when our heart is so heavy?" Rohit asks him.
Abhi is touched. He is unable to speak. "But....." he manages feebly.
"But......nothing Abhi, we are staying here for another few days, till Nikki gets better," Riddhima tells him putting a tender hand on his arm.
"Yeah, Jeeju," Sonam tells him. "Don't cut us out,"
His heart stirred emotionally by their words, Abhi extends his arms on either side and hugs both of them.
"You are a great bunch of guys," he tells them, darting a feeble smile at Armaan and Rohit.
"Now that Nikki is fine, why don't you go home, freshen up and rest for a while?" Armaan tells him. "We'll stay here ."
"No, I won't be able to be at peace. I have a change in the office, I'll freshen up here, All of you, please go, I'll let you know if I need anything."
Reluctantly everybody nod their heads and leave.
Suddenly Abhi remembers something and calls out to Armaan, Riddhima and Sid, asking them to stay for few minutes. After the others have left, Abhi tells them.
"Guys, will you please go to our place and pull it all down?" To suppress his pain, he averts looking at them.
Knowing what he was referring to Armaan and Riddhima feel their hearts being pierced from within.
"But.....but...." Riddhima stutters.
"Do it either before you go home or first thing tomorrow morning." Abhi interrupts her. "Please" he coaxes in a low tone.
With a heavy heart they nod their heads.
Dr. Keerti comes to him.
"Abhimanyu, everything seems fine at the moment. Even the fetal heartbeats seem strong. So we will have to keep a close watch for atleast 24 hours for any deviation, till we can safely say the baby is fine,"
"Thanks a lot Dr. Keerti, You've given me a new life today. I am here, I'll keep a watch you go home."
"Please don't say thanks," Dr. Keerti tells him. "You know how close I am to Nikki and this baby, especially, since I have been handling Nikki's pregnancy. I am sure the baby will be fine," she assures him. Abhi nods his head.
"Looks like a fighter to me like the parents! " she tells him further. Her words manages to bring a slight smile on Abhi's face.
"You've been wonderful, Dr. Keerti," tears glistening in his eyes, he puts an arm around her and squeezes her arm.
At the Modi's residence, Riddhima, Armaan and Sid have tears in their eyes as they see how beautifully Abhi and Nikki's room was decorated. It was adorned with sweet smelling candles, flowers arranged in baskets and vases on the floor, all along the outline of the room. Over the bed from the ceiling was suspended white transparent curtains bunched on the top and flowing down till they were pinned up against the four posts of the bed, giving the room a sheer warm and romantic look. On the headboard was Abhi's special gift for Nikki, covered behind a transparent white curtain. When the curtains were drawn, fixed firmly right across the headboard was a framed picture of the two of them at Rohit's wedding, the very picture, Nikki had planned to gift Abhi. It was beautifully highlighted with a fluroscent tube giving a radiant glow to the picture.
With heavy hearts the three of them go about putting off the candles, pulling down the curtains and undoing the other adornments. Riddhima recollects how detailed Abhi was when he explained to her, where the candles and flowers should be placed, their colours and kinds.
She stares at the picture on the headboard. Her eyes were brimming with tears. Armaan puts a hand on her shoulder. "Thankfully, the picture is firmly nailed to the headboard. I just don't have the heart to pull it down." She tells him, putting her head on his chest.
Armaan puts his hand on her head and consolingly pats it.
"Don't worry Riddhima," He tells her. "They'll have this special moment again. These are little hurdles that come up in between which only reminds us how important the ones closest in our hearts, are to us. You can see how strong their love has grown. Just wait and watch, everything will be fine with them soon. They'll have lots and lots of happiness from here on." he assures her with moist eyes.
Sitting down on the chair besides Nikki's bed, Abhimanyu Modi keeps a hawk-like watch over his wife and the monitor displaying the heartbeats of his baby. His insides were now much calmer, even though, the fear for the baby has not been wiped out completely. Yet, something in his heart kept nagging him, telling him that he would have both of them in his arms soon. He prays that it happens soon. He just can't wait anymore. His right hand on Nikki's stomach and taking her hand in his left hand, he kisses it tenderly.
"Come back to me my Babies," he whispers. "I need you both so much as much I need my next breath. Please, please come back soon!"
PRECAP TO PART 37
On his way to the kitchen, Sid was passing the living room when he saw Abhi, clad only in a bathrobe lying, on the couch.
He begins to laugh heartily.
Abhi glares "What the hell are you laughing for you Idiot!"
"Bhai you sleeping outside? and that too in a bathrobe?"
"Whats with you?" an annoyed Abhi roars at him. "I am not sleeping in the nude na?"
Sid continued chuckling loudly looking every bit like a clucking hen. It irritated Abhi more and more.
"Will you shut up you idiot or should I give you a good thrashing?"
"Bhai, you got thrown out of your room?"
Abhi looks daggers at him.
"The fact is you scare and rule over everyone but she rules over you! Right? Right?" he instigates.
A scowling Abhi gets up from the couch ready to chase him, but, Sid manages to quickly run into his room
