Messed up built in partitions

I bought this Samsung laptop with a built in Windows 8.

It only had one usable partition on the disk, i.e. C: drive

But I wanted a separate partition for my data, while having OS on C: drive

So I installed a partition manager, (EaseUS Partition Master, as far as I remember)

I created a separate partition D:

I wasn't satisfied with the allocated size of the new drive, so I tried to extend it, but then I realized I was having few partitions (without any drive letters) in between drive C and D; and extension could only be made to an adjacent partition!

Out of frustration I deleted one of those partitions in between.

I guess it was a recovery partition, having size of few GBs.

Now I want to know where do I stand and how much am I messed up!

And how safe is it to delete the remaining of those partitions?

I have attached current screenshots.

LEAVE EVERYTHING THE WAY IT IS.

If you change anything, your laptop will not boot into Windows and you are SOL without a Windows installer.

Thankfully, you deleted the recovery partition, which has a recovery image if you have problems later. Do not change anything else, because what you have left is essential for the computer to boot.
