With Anu around Sarah felt a lot more comfortable and she was amazed as to how could one be so bubbly and jovial. She always had that picture perfect smile seeing which even Sarah couldn't stop herself from smiling. The best part about Anu which Sarah liked was she never left Sarah feel lonely, she always gave her company. On days when there were classes Anu would always be by Sarah, during evenings and holidays Anu would message or call up Sarah now and then to make sure that she was ok. Inspite of being two extremes they got together like a house on fire.

Sarah finally joined the college in which she did her Bachelors for her Masters. And very soon her classes started and Sarah hardly knew anyone even after a week of start of classes. She preferred to stick to her own self in class and avoided every other possible chances where she could interact with people. It took Sarah almost a month to find a friend. Her friend was named Anu. Now Anu and Sarah they were like fire and ice. Speaking of Anu, she was a cheerful and bubbly girl an extrovert by nature and had the ability to put a smile on people's face. And if there was one person's company she enjoyed the most in class it would be Anu's. Anu after realizing what Sarah was going through decided to make Sarah's life better and made a promise to herself to get back the smile and innocence that Sarah had lost along with the death of Tom.

Days quickly turned into months and months into an year. After spending almost an year at her grandparent's place Sarah finally returned back home. In that one year she learned to accept things and was able to recover from the trauma that she had after Tom's death. She was finally able to come out of memories that she had with Tom. Sarah missed Rohith and her grandparents as she returned back home. But things had changed back home, her friends Catherine, Ann and Katie were now working and hence Sarah couldn't meet them often. Tom's parents had moved back to their native and Sarah's sister had finally finished her schooling and was about to start with her Bachelor's course by the time Sarah returned back. Now that Sarah was back home she thought it would be better if she continued her studies and applied for her Masters in the same college that she did her Bachelors thinking that she would at-least know some people around.

It was while Sarah spend time at her grandparents home did she meet Rohith, her second cousin. They haden't spoke much earlier. Now Rohith was staying near Sarah's grandparent's home and would visit them often. After a few days Sarah slowly started talking to Rohith. Talking about Rohith he was a cool guy and believed that whatever happens happens for a reason. Sarah was able to relate to him and slowly started talking things out to Rohith. She felt relieved by doing so. In return Rohith filled her mind with positive thoughts and encouraged her in doing things. And literally he did everything possible to keep her mind free from memories of Tom. With Rohith by her side she felt comfortable and was amazed at the thought level and perception of life that Rohith had eventhough he was younger than her.

During this period the only ones who were there by Sarah's side were her parents, friends and Tom's parents. Deep inside Tom's parents felt sad for her and they always considered her as their daughter and was sure that she would sometime soon become part of their family by being Tom's bride. They felt for her for what she had to undergo at such a tender age. On the other side Sarah was being haunted by the memories that she had with Tom. Days passed and still Sarah was stuck with her memories with Tom. Seeing what Sarah was going through Tom's parents suggested that it would be better if Sarah was moved to some-place calm and serene, so it was suggested that she go to her grandparent's house and pretty soon Sarah moved to her grandparent's home. But Sarah had other plans in mind, she wanted to continue with higher education from the very next academic year, she thought by keeping herself busy with studies she can forget about the past. But her parents and Tom's parents felt it would be better if she took an year's break and concentrate on other things which would make her happy and relaxed. Both Sarah's and Tom's parents believed that concentrating on other things would make Sarah overcome the memories that haunted her..

What laid ahead of Sarah's life was a fairy tale filled with trauma and tears. Now that Sarah had enough of what life had to offer for her she began to look into teaching as something which provided her comfort apart from the company of her friends and family. Now there was a guy in Sarah's class by name Tom. Sarah and Tom had hardly spoke to each other. What attracted people to Tom was the warm smile that he had always. Now Tom does have a crucial role in this story so it is important to know a bit about him. He was an average looking guy with hazel eyes and is a silent person who did not like spending much of a time with friends and did not prefer going out to parties. And he hardly had any friends in class and did most of his studies by himself. Now there was this chapter in Accounts which Tom was finding hard to understand and needed someone's help so that he could grasp it. But now that he hardly had any friends he did not know whom to ask and he did not want to go to the lecturer. And very soon Tom got to know that Sarah would teach people and he approached Sarah to ask if she could teach him that chapter. Sarah gladly accepted to teach Tom and he was happy by the way Sarah taught him and cleared his doubts. So from then anytime Tom had doubts in studies he approached Sarah and she would help him out each time gladly. And very soon their learning and teaching paved way to a strong bond of friendship between them. Soon Tom became part of Sarah's group along with Catherine, Ann and Katie. Deep inside Sarah's friends did not like Tom much but they were ok with him being part of the group as it made Sarah happy and they did not want Sarah to be depressed again. Slowly Tom began to fill up the space and scars that the other guy left in Sarah's heart. And very soon Sarah and Tom started having feelings towards each other and both of them decided to get committed but only with the permission of their parents. Both their parents were fine with it but only Sarah's friends had a problem with this relationship because they thought if at all there would ever be a breakup Sarah wouldn't be able to bear it. They were termed as an unusual couple by others including their classmates and batch-mates because they hardly went out together and they would spend most of their time talking to each other or studying within the campus. Days passed quickly and very soon they were graduated from their Undergraduate course. Now Destiny had something else for Sarah in stock. Few days after the graduation Tom met with an accident and he died on the spot. This left Sarah devastated and took a turmoil on her life. She did not find any reason to live in this world where her beloved Tom did not exist anymore....
