WHAT I CAN DO IN MY LIFE
Although, the mother of Rhea knew well that her daughter had two hearts by birth, she kept quiet for quite long years, due to unknown fear for this rarest of rare case. When the mother came to know about Rhea has fallen in love with Darwin, the mother of Rhea explained about this phenomenal to Darwin, who however, took this issue very lightly and agreed to marry Rhea, know well the pros and cons which may arise in future to Rhea.
Darwin has been in fond love affection with Rhea since marriage. The problem of Rhea having two hearts did not disturb Darwin and some-how Darwin doesn’t want Rhea to donate one of her heart, as a charity act. On one day Rhea told her mother and Darwin that she wanted to donate her one of her heart to an NGO to save a life of another. Rhea said that this is an exemplary act of mine and it is my firm decision to donate my heart. ‘Are you sure, Rhea?’ asks my mother.
‘Of course I’m Survival of the fittest mother. I’m not going against Darwin. Also I don’t want unnecessary scars on my body having two hearts which is against the human nature’ and against scientific anatomy.
The problem came to Rhea when she has gone for a medical test to know about her confined pregnancy. When all the scanning tests were performed at the hospital, the doctors were stunned to know about Rhea having two hearts and her pregnancy. Doctors opined that Rhea may confront some problems during her delivery time due to her two hearts, which is one of the rarest of rare cases in the history of medical science.
Rhea said to her hubby Darwin and to her mother that it’s a known fact that we are all born to die. And frankly, Rhea said, I don’t understand why it has to be made into such a big deal. If it were not for my mother I would have said that to the bunch of people outside my house, some of them with young kids, shouting slogans, waving placards, literally wanting me to cut one of my beating hearts out. “Save A Life. Donate!” they shouted. Rhea again said that having two hearts is a rarest of rare cases and I would like to donate one working right-side heart to the needy, to save another human life, even if it is risk to my life. The whole of nation knew of my having two hearts and though, I am medically and physically fit now, I would like to donate one of my heart, Rhea said to her mother and hubby Darwin.
It’s so rare – literally one in all humankind – those doctors didn’t even name the anomaly (as they call it, I will call it awesomeness).

All human beings should have, as per nature science, two lungs, two kidney’s, two eyes, two arms, two legs, two intestines Etc., and one cannot have two hearts, which Rhea and Doctors opined. Therefore, Rhea was very firm to donate her one right side heart to the needy person, though whatever the repercussions she confronts at a later stage.
