Author's Notes : Special thanks to my wonderful beta reader welsh_scotsman for her unwavering support, to Jessica for her help with the medical stuff and to all the readers who sent me so wonderful comments. Sorry, that it took me so long to update this fic. Real life has been really hard these days and for a moment, I experienced a writer’s block :(. Anyway, this is the longest chapter I have ever written. Hope it’s worth the wait.
