Unending love (part 2)

The year went by smoothly enough. It was exam time... as usual Veena and Vivek were busy preparing for their exams and as usual they used to chat everyday in their dreams and motivate each other to bring in the best in them. It was the time when everyone was busy doing the final revisions and gearing up for the preliminary examinations. Vivek was ready too. he was going through the last chapter in Biology when suddenly one his room-mates came in and told him that he had a call from his home. He immediately went and picked the phone... it was his dad, something was seriously wrong. He forgot about his exams, he forgot about his dream, he forgot about everything, he just rushed home. The journey was terrible for him, all the wrong ideas kept creeping in. He just wished they were not true.
Vivek reached home. not finding peace he straight went to his mom. As soon as his mom saw him she burst into tears. Vivek was now really very confused. Within minutes his father took him to the hospital. He was now deeply praying. there inside the I.C.U was his sister, his sister was lying lifeless, her face was pale and she was not conscious. Vivek went inside. He sat besides her and she opened her eyes slowly, saw him, smiled faintly and then She slept again.
Vivek went nowhere, he slept besides her that day. The next morning Veena woke up and saw Vivek sleeping besides her. she woke him up and like the sun brings life to earth, the arrival of Vivek had brought her back to life. She talked her heart out to him, she had cancer.
They chatted for what seemed like seconds but the whole day passed by and she told him everything, everything why she didn't give her exams, why she sent her to a hostel away from her, away from her illness. they both cried but Vivek understood, he understood the pain, her dream and her passion. He knew how much she wanted him to be a doctor. He had to give exams, the exams were due in two weeks. Veena knew how important the exams for to both of them and she knew she might not survive, but her brother was there, there to give her the hope she needed, he went back the next day.
they talked to each other every night, the doctors were surprised how she was fighting the deadly disease which was killing her from the inside, it was no more than a miracle, but she was holding on, for her brother, so that he gives his exams, so that he fulfills their dreams, their parents dreams. Every night Vivek told her to hold on, only a few days were left for his exams to finish, then he would be back, back with her and nothing would ever go wrong. She was brave and dtermined to hold on, she knew it was not far away, she endured pain day and night but she didn't let go.
the next day, after his exam he came back to his hostel, he got a phone from one of Veena's friends. it was short, she said" Are you her brother? the brother she loves so much? then why are you giving her so much pain? why are you making her suffer so much? each day is like death for her, please don' do this."
That night before he slept, he knew what to do, he slept early, he told his sister,
My dear sister, i never thought about your pain, i was so selfish, i thought only about myself, i am sorry. i promise you i will become a doctor, believe me i will not let us down. now please sleep peacefully.
Next morning he recieved a call from his father, his sister died, but she had a content smile on her face.
