PART 11...


He stop for a while n cont. 'I never believe before anyone could fall in love in first sight till its happens with me...

Yes Riddhima... Im head over heels in love with u... From the first time I saw u...
That rainy night...
Riddhima, i want to be my first n last love...
First n last girlfriend...
First n last partner... For the rest of my life...
Will u be my life partner forever...???'


Leaving her hand, Armaan go down on his knee...
Taking ring from his pocket, he forward it to Riddhima...
Tears roll down from her eyes... She was in cloud9 to know Armaan Mallik was in love with her...
But next second, her past came hunting her... Flash back came in front of her eyes like it happen yesterday...


Riddhima open her mouth to answer him but, no words came out... Tears were forming making her surrounding fades in front of her eyes...


Riddhima closed her eyes to let the tears roll down on to her cheeks and after staying like that for seconds, she open her eyes to see still Armaan sitting on his knee...

'Riddhima...' Armaan called her name when she didnt answer him from few seconds...

He sense somehow Riddhima remember about her past... He wants to tell her, he knows about her fear but thinking it wouldnt be right to let her know he knows about her past when she dont like anyone to know about it will make everything goes worst...


'Armaan... Main...'

Riddhima try to say something but her sobs increase not letting her say anything more...

Armaan get up and move closed to her... He holds her by shoulder but she just move away from him...
'Riddhima...'

'Armaan... Please drop me back to home...' It was only Riddhima could say... Her voice choked and didnt let her speak...

'Lekin huva kya Riddhima... Did I say anything wrong...'

Armaan came to in front of her...

'Armaan... This is not the right time... Please...' Riddhima move to go but was pull back and crush to Armaan hard well built chest... Her hands were on his chest while Armaan pull her by one arm and put his other hand around her waist pulling her closed to him...

'U didnt answer me Riddhima... If u need time, I can give u... But atleast say something...' Armaan look at her eyes with love and care in his...

Riddhima meet her eyes with his... Before she loose her control, she move her gaze away...


'Armaan... Im sorry but I cant...'

Armaan hold loose... He wasnt expecting this... At least he expect she would ask for time but, everything goes other way...

'Why...' Armaan ask still looking her face...

'Armaan... Im sorry but I wouldnt be able to trust any guy when it come to this serious relation...' Riddhima said not looking at his eyes...

'Mere aankhon main dekhe bolo Riddhima... Why u cant trust me... Its not about anyone else... Its about us... I love u more then my life...

Im willing to give u time if u need... Aur kya chahiyeh... Mujhe itna pata hai tumhare life main aisa koi nehi hai tum pyar karte ho... I mean not urfamily, as a life partner... lover...'

'Armaan... Please... Bohot raat hogayi... And I think this is not the right time...'

Riddhima try to move...
''Isse accha time nehi milenge Riddhima... U dont love me...' Armaan asked making her look at his eyes...

Riddhima got mum for a while... She knows how much her heart wants to say yes to him... But her mind wasnt letting her decide this...

She need sometimes but she knows if Armaan did the same, next time she wouldnt be able to handle her heart.. It will be broken badly that no one could ever fixed it...

Before it wasnt love... After meeting Armaan, Riddhima felt how true love happens...

'Riddhima... Wht making u stop letting out ur feelings... I know even u love me... I have seen in ur eyes... Riddhima please answer me... At least think about it...'

Riddhima came back to her sense when she heard Armaan talking to her...

Before Riddhima could say anything Armaan mobile ring... Riddhima move towards the car as Armaan also move with her answering his call...


Ending call not asking more question, both sit in the car and drive off...
While Armaan was looking at time every two second... Riddhima was lost in her thought... War was going between her mind and heart...


RIDDHIMA'S POV...

Wht is wrong with me... Armaan Mallik propose me and I down him down... Just becox of that idiot so called fiance cheated on me...


Armaan isn't like that... Papa knows his family so well... Aur maine suna hai Armaan Mallik never give attention to any girl in his entry life... Then why me... and that two from 2yrs...

Yeah ok I admit I met him two yrs before on that rainy night and he took me to his house with him... I leave early morning but, was he really loves me from that time...

Heart: Of course he loves u... Dont u know he never give attention to any other girl... Why only u Ridzy...

Mind: But how this is possible... I mean ur so called fiance just cheated u knowing from 3yrs and in relation with 2yrs...

Heart: Human can make mistake...

Mind: Not human... U make her feel it was love...

Heart: So wht, if he was a nice guy she surely will be happy today...

Mind: So sorry he turn villein in the love story...

Heart: Common... We r over with it... And Shut up and lets her decide wht she feel for Armaan...

Yeah Right... Wht I feel for him...

Heart: Do u feel everything perfect when he is around...

Yes!!! I do...

Heart: Do u feel secure when he holds u in his arms...

Yes!!! I do...

Heart: Do u feel butterflies in ur stomach when he come closed to u... Do u feel ur heart beat, mean me going out of control... Do u feel blood run down ur spine sending current down in ur body when he come closed to u...

Yes!!! I do... But,

Mind: This couldnt happen... It feels the same way when that so called...

No... No its doesnt feel like before...
All these happens only when Armaan come closed... Why so...

Heart: Becox u r also in love with him...

Yeah I know that but,

Heart: Dont let the fear took over... He is the one Ridzy... No one can ever love u more then he do...
See... He was able to give u time... Did u saw his eyes when u said no... How sad and hurt he was... How much pain... pain of loosing was killing him in inside himself...

Mind: Anyone can show it...

Heart: Wrong... Only true lover can... So Ridzy... Its up to u now...
Dont let mind took over ur heart...
Think about it... Dont make this chance go out from ur hand...

RIDDHIMA'S POV END...

 ..............................................................................................................................
Riddhima came out from her thought when Armaan call her name... He wasnt looking at her just said they reach and Riddhima got out from the car... Riddhima closed the door and thought Armaan will wait till her go inside, but he zoomed off the next second Riddhima closed the door...
'Yeh Armaan koh kya huva...' Riddhima thought...

Thinking she will met him at office next day, Riddhima got inside and went straight to her room...
Changing to her night cloths, Riddhima hit the bed...
As she had a busy week, the second she hit the bed, she drown into deep slumber to meet her love in his dream... The person she just turn down a few hrs ago...


ARMAAN POV...

I was thinking to make her speak her heart out... But to my bad luck, i got a call...
Answering it, I came to know Dad just slip his leg and fall from the stairs... My heart started to beat uncontrollable...

Saying I will reach as soon as I can I sit and drove off to drop Riddhima off to home before I meet my father...

I keep looking at the time as my focus was on the road... But I just look every minute to Riddhima who was quite from the time I got the call...
Like others time, this time she didnt asked who called...
She was lost in her own world...

Letting her think, I reach her house... Wait to let her go out but she didnt know they had reach...
'Riddhima... Ghar aagaye...' I told just looking at her confused face...
It seems war was going on between her mind and heart...

Not saying anything she just got out from the car...
As I was in hurry, not waiting for her to go inside, I just drove off...

END OF ARMAAN'S POV...
 ......................................................................................................................................................
'Mom... Mom...'


Armaan shouted on top of his voice entering home... Nikki came running out from their Parents room...
'Bhai... Chilla kyu raha hai...' Nikki said...


'Dad kaha hai...' Armaan asked moving toward the room...


'Room main... Aur Doc ne check karli... Nothing happen... He is fine...' Nikki said moving after him...

Armaan move to his parents room and saw his father laying down closed his eyes...
Ananya wasnt anywhere to be seen... He move closed to him and sit next to him taking his hand on his... Keep looking at his body to see if anything serious happen just saw a small bandage around his forehead...
'Dad abhi so gaya... Doc ne injection de di for pain killer...' Nikki said...

Not asking anything, kissing his forehead Armaan leave from there... Asking Nikki to come out...
'Mom kaha hai...' Coming out, it was the first Question...

'Woh kuch kaam ke liye bahar gayi... Abhi aata hi hoga...' Nikki said...

'How can she leave dad like this...' Armaan anger rose high...

'Bhai, maine mom koh bheja.. Uski friend ki ek operation hai aaj... Aur mom toh pehle se hi waha jaane wali ti...

 Lekin when this happen woh toh jaane se mana kya but maine use bhejdi... Aur main hoon na dad ki saat... Mom ne kaha woh ek hr main waapas aajaengi... So she will be here any moment...'

'hmmm... Okkk.. Main kamre main jaa raha hoon... Please mera black coffee waha bhejo... Mujhe tohda headache hai...' Armaan said moving...


'Bhai... Congratulation... Show was successful...' Nikki said...

Armaan smile but Nikki saw it was the usual one becox she didnt his cute dimple...

Thought to ask but thinking he must be tired and also he was having headache... 'Bhai aap kamre main jao... Main kissi koh kehke waha coffee bhejdungi...'


'Thanks' Armaan went to his room...


NEXT DAY...


Riddhima went to office hoping to talk with Armaan...
But to her surprise he didnt come today... Neither Billy Uncle came...
After working hrs,she went to home...


At Night...

Padma and Shashank were waiting for Riddhima to join them... They said they will be going our after dinner... Riddhima agreed becox she havent get time from the last month to spend time with both of them...

After dinner three of them leave... Shashank turn the car toward the Mallik mansion...

'Dad... Hum is raaste se kyu jaa rahe ho... ' Riddhima asked when she saw him taking the turn...

'Kyunki we r going to meet Billy...' Shashank said...

'Kyu...???' Riddhima asked...

'Dont tell me u dont know Billy fall from stairs last night Riddhima...' Padma said...

'Wht... When???' Riddhima was shocked to hear this..

'Last night... After the fashion show... It was around 1am...' Shashank said...

'Aapko kab pata chala...' Riddhima asked thinking it was when she was with Armaan...

Why didnt he tell her anything... Maybe he felt bad he didnt think to tell me...

'Aaj afternoon main Anjali ka call aaya...' Shashank said...

'Di koh kaise pata chala...' Riddhima asked...

'Dont forget Riddhima... Mallik's r like Atul's own Parent... Toh use pata hoga toh obviously Anjali koh bhi pata chaljaenge na...' Padma reply him...

'Issiliye aaj Billy Uncle ne office nehi aaya... Aur Armaan...'
Riddhima thought to her self...

Thinking she would question and scold at Armaan for not telling her this a smile came to her lips thinking about him...

They reach and came out from the car.. Not waiting for Shashank and Padma, Riddhima run inside...
She went straight to their room but before entering stop seeing Nikki coming with a tray...

'May I...' Riddhima ask standing infront of her...

'Ridzy ... tum...'

'Haan main... Suna uncle koh chot laga.. Issiliye Ma aur Papa ki saat aayi hoon... Yeh Uncle ke liye na... Can I serve him...' Riddhima asked...

Nikki didnt feel like to say no when she asked so cutely... Giving her tray she went to welcome Shashank and Padma... Ananya was in the kitchen as Nikki call from her top voice to Ananya that Shashank and Padma came...

Holding the tray, Riddhima knocked the door to hear Billy give permission... Making a straight face, Riddhima move inside to see Billy reading a file...

'Sir... Aapka dinner... ' Riddhima said...

When that voice reach to his ears, Billy look from the file and smile came to his face...

'Riddhima beti... Tum...' Placing the tray on the side table, she move closed to him and give a side hug...
Sitting next to him, she look at his forehead to see the bandage...

'Yeh kaise huva Uncle... Aur Armaan ne kal raat mujhe nehi bataya... Kaha hai woh...' Riddhima asked...
'Bas chotasa chot hai Riddhima...

Woh aapko kaise batate... Mere baare main suna hai toh bhag ke aagaye...' Billy said caring Riddhima's hair...

'Phir bhi aaj subah toh inform karna chahiyeh ti na... Aap na sahi... Aur koh toh inform karna chahiyeh ta... Lekin woh toh call ya ek msg bhi nehi bheja... Aur office bhi nehi aaya...' Riddhima said...


'Haan woh kaise kissi koh kuch bata paenge... Usko ek emergency meeting ke liye subah london jaana pada... Woh ek weeki baad aayenge...'

Hearing Armaan left, and that too without informing her, Riddhima felt said about this... Her face color fades thinking Armaan is doing this just she said she cant give a chance...

'Kyu Armaan... Ek baar bhi batana jaruri nehi samjha jaane se pehle...'




PART 12...


Hearing Armaan left, and that too without informing her, Riddhima felt sad about this... Her face color fades thinking Armaan is doing this just she said she cant give a chance...

'Kyu Armaan... Ek baar bhi batana jaruri nehi samjha jaane se pehle...'
Riddhima came back from her thought when the door open... She turn around to see Padma and Shashank standing with Ananya and Nikki...

Riddhima move and took blessing of Ananya while Padma and Shashank move to bed to meet Billy...
Riddhima... Mujhe tumse kuch baat karni hai...' Nikki said when others got busy with talking...

Bolo Nikki... Kya baat hai...' Riddhima said still some where in her mind Armaan was disturbing...

Yaha nehi Riddhima... Meri saat aao...' Nikki said standing to leave...

Aunty... Uncle... Main Riddhima koh meri room main lejati hoon... Mujhe use kuch dikhana hai...' Padma and Shashank aprove by saying yes from their head...

Chalo Riddhima...' Holding Riddhima hand, Nikki took her and went out from the room...

Not knowing about wht Nikki wants to talk with her, Riddhima went with her...
Nikki took her to Armaan room... Riddhima was shocked to see why she took her there...

Nikki yeh toh Armaan ki...' She was cut by her...

Haan Riddhima... Yeh Armaan bhai ki room hai...' Nikki said opening and letting her inside to the room...

Riddhima look around for sometimes and then sit on the couch... Nikki keep looking her every moment...
Nikki... Tumhe mujhse baat karni ti.. Kya baat hai...' Riddhima asked...


Riddhima... Do you love Armaan bhai...'

Nikki's sudden question give a big shock to Riddhima... She look at Nikki who was looking at her...

Yeh tum...' Riddhima didn't know wht to say...

Dekho Riddhima... If u don't love him, then also it is ok... But if u love him why don't u guys be together... I will be really glad u to have u as my bhabhi... Aur rahi baat bhai ka... U will be the most luckiest girl... He never fall for any girl before like he fall for u...


Tum soch rahi hongi na mujhe kaise pata...
Pata hai Riddhima... Maine 2yrs pehle bhai koh aise kissi ke baare main itna khoyeh huva dekha... Jabse who tumhe dekha, bohot badlav aagaya hai...

Bure nehi... Acche badlav...
Bhai kabhi kissi koh nehi bataenge woh tumse kitna pyar karte hai... Lekin maine dekha hai... Pehle mujhe bhi yakeen nehi huva...
Bhai Aur pyaar... Jiske liye apna kaam ke alawa kuch aur nehi dekhte aaj uske liye tum itna special hogaya...'


Riddhima was lost wht Armaan tell her before he propose her previous night...
Riddhima somehow I feel u even love him... Then wht is the problem...' Nikki ask sitting next to her and taking her hand...

She even knows something dreadful happen in Riddhima past.. But didn't know wht is the reason, why Riddhima is scared to be in a relation from past two years...


Nikki... Armaan is a nice guy but...'

But wht Riddhima... Why don't u give a chance to Bhai...' Nikki said making her look at her...

Leaving Nikki hand, Riddhima stand and move to the window...


Nikki... Chance de sakta hoon lekin...'
Lekin kya Riddhima... Aise koansi baat hai ki tum dar rahi ho ki kissi ki saat rishta jodne se... Riddhima... Bolo... Aise kya baat hai...' Nikki asked...



Nikki... Main nehi bata sakti... Kyunki main us baat koh yaad karna nahi chahti... Aur haan mujhe rishte se dar lagta hai... Kyunki main ek baar dokha ka chuka hoon... Dusri baar aisa huva toh main phirse apne aap ko sambhal nehi paungi...' Riddhima said folding her hand on her chest...


Dekho Riddhima... Main nehi jaanti aisa kya huva hai tum yeh rishte jodne se dar rahi hai...
Lekin main tujhe yakeen dila sakti hoon bhai aisa nehi hai...
Jab bhai kissi se pyaar karte hai, uske liye bhai kuch bhi kar sakte hai...
Mujhe hi dekhlo...
Bhai mujhse itna pyar karte hai meri aankho main ek aansu bhi nehi aane dete... Main galati kare toh mom aur dad ki daant se woh hamesha mujhe bachate hai...
Yeh sach hai hum dono fight karti hoon... Lekin utna pyaar bhi hai hum dono ki beech...
Riddhima...
Tumhe yakeen nehi hai toh main tujhe kuch aur dikhati hoon... Chalo meri saat...' Nikki took her and open a door which was attach to the room...



Darkness was around the room...
Yeh room main bhai kissi koh nehi aane dete... Kal raat jab maine bhai koh bhulane aayi tab maine dekha yeh darwaza khula chod di bhai... Bhai koh kahi pe nehi dekha toh socha main yaha dekhu... Maine kabhi bhai koh kissi ladki ke liye rote huve nehi dekha... Kal raat maine sab kuch sunliya... Lekin bhai koh nehi pata maine suna ya dekha... Kyunki maine bhai koh pata nehi chalne di...'
Nikki move to the right and on the light...

Riddhima was shocked to see the room wall... Three walls were fill with her picture...
Some from Atul and Anjali wedding...
Some from Atul and Anjali receiption...
Some while she was working in the office...
It was really shocking...
Bhai kabhi kissi koh yaha aane nehi dete... Woh khud yeh room saaf karte hai...
Pehli baar kal raat maine dekha...
Riddhima, Kya abhi bhi tumhe lagta hai woh tujhse saccha pyar nehi karte...' Nikki said moving closed to her and putting her hand on Riddhima shoulder who was lost in her thought...


RIDDHIMA'S POV...

When Nikki on the light I was shocked to see the room fill of my photo's everywhere... Some was hagging on the wall while others were kept on the tables and curboard which was kept...
Sach main yeh ho sakta hai kya... Armaan mujhse itna pyaar...' I keep thinking...
Heart: Ho sakta nehi... Huva hai Riddhima... Armaan ne tumhe bata diya who tumse kitna pyaar karte hai... Yakin karo use Riddhima... Woh tumhe bohot khush rakhenge...
Mind: Lekin yeh mat bhulna pehle tumhare saat kya huva... Woh bhi aise tujhe special feel karwaya...
Again war started between her heart and mind...
Heart: Usne woh sab galat iraade par kiya... Aur Armaan uske jaisa kabhi nehi ho sakta... Dekha jae toh Armaan ki mom aur dad bhi Riddhima koh pasand karte hai...
Mind: Toh... Iska yeh matlab nhi hai ki woh Riddhima koh dokha nehi de sakta... De sakta hai...
Heart: Lekin Nikki ne kaha hai use poora yakeen hai Armaan sacche dilse Riddhima se pyaar karte hai...
Aur mujhe lagta hai Riddhima koh Armaan koh sab kuch batana chahiyeh aur yeh rishte koh chance dena chahiyeh...
Mind: Im telling u... Phirse aisa kuch huva toh tu phirse toot jaengi...
Heart: Mujhe yakeen hai is baar aisa kuch nehi hoga... Armaan kabhi tujhe hurt nehi kar sakta...
As the battle was going between Heart and mind Riddhima keep thinking wht to do next not giving any attension to the war which was going inside her...

RIDDHIMA'S POV END...


.............................................

Riddhima came back when she felt Nikki hand on her shoulder and she shake her softly to bring her back to world...
Hah...'
Maine poocha kya abhi bhi tumhe lagta hai ki bhai tumse saccha pyar nehi karte...' Nikki repeat wht she said...
Nehi...' She said still her mind was doing the war...


Riddhima... I think tumhe is baare main sochna chahiyeh... Aur jitna waqt lena chahte hai le lo... Lekin please bhai koh apna lo... Tumhare feelings koh apnalo... Kyunki yehi sach hai tum dono ek dusre ke liye bani ho...'

Nikki left saying this to give sometimes to Riddhima to think about wht she just said and wht she just saw...
Riddhima move closed to the photos and touch it while she was busy thinking about Armaan...

After like 10mins Riddhima went to join others... Rest of the night, she was lost in her thought... She talk less and after spending like an hr, they went back to home...


RIDDHIMA'S ROOM...


Riddhima was standing near the window... She was confused with her emotion... She try not to think about wht Nikki said becox she was feeling scared... So much scared that she was trying to run away from the truth...
Yeh mujhe kya ho raha hai... Main jitna bhagne ki koshish kar rahi hoon utna uski baare main socha rahi hoon... Kya sach main... Nehi nehi... Aise kaise ho sakta hai...
Lekin, mujhe bura kyu laga yeh jaanke Armaan ne jaane se pehle mujhe nehi bataya... Kyu main uske baare main hamesha soch ti rehti hoon...
Kyu jab woh mere paas aate hi toh meri dhankad fast hote hai...
Kyu mujhe accha lagta hai jab who mere saat hote toh...
Kyu mujhe use baat karte huve accha lagta hai...
Kya main bhi use sach main pyar karti hoon...
Kya woh mujhe bhi itna accha lagte laga...
Lekin jo mere saat huva, kya uski baad main Armaan koh apna paungi...
Mujhe di se baat karna chahiyeh... Nehi toh main so nehi paungi... Di koh batake Atul jeeju se poochunga Armaan ke baare main...
Kuch dino se main bhi jaanti hoon Armaan se... Aur mujhe pata hai woh bura insaan nehi hai...
Lekin main meri dil koh kaise samjhaun... Kya karu main... Di se baat karna padega...'




Riddhima moves to search her phone... She saw it was kept on table... Taking her mobile she dails her Di number...


After three rings Anjali answer her call...
Princess... Itni raat... Kya huva... Tum tik toh hona... Mom aur Dad toh tik haina... Kuch bolo Princess...'


Anjali started with her questions when the time she revecived the call...
Di... Di... Di... Meri pyaari Di... Yaha sab tik hai... Maine bas aise aapko phone kya... Mujhe aapse kuch baat karni hai...' Riddhima said sitting near the window on the door sill...


Kya huva Princess... Anything serious...' Anjali ask with a calm voice knowing everyone was fine...



Di... Woh... Mujhe...' She got nervous suddenly how she would ask or talk to her Di about Armaan and Her feelings...
Princess... Why u r hesitating to talk with me...' Anjali asked sensing something Riddhima was hesitating to talk with her...
Her di, who she never hide anything...
Di... Please aap mujhe tease mat karna... Please...' Riddhima said...
Main kyu tease karungi Meri choti behen koh...Kya baat hai Princess...'

Riddhima closed her eyes for a second and thinking she should tell someone about this, if not she wouldn't be able to sleep or do anything for the coming days...
Di woh, Armaan...'
Armaan...???' Anjali asked as it a question...
Leaving a breathem,'Di... Armaan ne mujhe propose kya...' She said atlast..
Wht... Really... OMG.. Congratulation Princess...' Anjali was really happy to hear this...
Di... Meri baat toh suno...' Riddhima said knowing in next second her happiness will turn sorrow when she hear her reply to Armaan...
Princess... Don't tell me, u turn him down...' Anjali said praying from her heart she will say no...
Haan Di... I did turn him down...' Riddhima said...
Wht... Tum paagal hogayi ho kya Princess...
U wouldn't get anyone like him...
Dashing... Hot... Handsome...
Who love his work... His family...


Who is a good friend of urs... Im sure he will be a very good life partner... Not like Si...' Anjali stop before she complete Riddhima so called boyfriend name...

Silent took place between them... Atlast Anjali thought she had to ake her little sister understand...


Dekho Ridzy... U need to move on in ur life... If u don't give chance to anyone... Someone like Armaan we know for him nothing matters much then his family and work... Im sure if he propose u, then he really must be head over heels in love with u princess...

Humne suno aur dekha bhi hai, he never talk to a girl on that way... Nahi ki woh ladki koh use karte hai aur us nazar se dekhte hai...'

Di... Main...' Riddhima didn't know how to tell her she was confused about her feeling...


Ek baat poochu Princess...' Anjali asked...


Hmmm...' Riddhima said knowing it was coming to her again... The same question Nikki asked her...


"Do u love Armaan...' Anjali asked...


Di woh main...'


Dekho Princess... If u love him, then tell him... Tell him everything before u confess ur love... Becox he had all the right to know before he knows u love him...


If u want to start a relation, tell him about ur past...
I know woh nehi poochenge... Aur woh jaana bhi nehi chahenge... Lekin it would be good if he knows everything...
Tumne aisa koi kaam nehi kya that idiot used u like that... Play with urfeelings...
I know Armaan aisa nehi karenge... If he knows everything, he will try to keep u happy... Not only u face all those but only he loves u Princess... From deep from his heart...'


Di... I know Armaan is a nice guy... Aur woh mujhe khush bhi rakhengi... Lekin di... Main confused hoon...
Mujhe dar bhi lagta hai... Kahim usne anjaane main mujhe hurt kya toh...


Di.. Aapko pata haina... Maine yeh doh saal kaise guzara... Aap logo ki wajahse main who sab kuch ki saat aage badi..
Koi kuch bhi kare di... Yeh baat toh hamesha mujhe satati rahengi... Kyunki usne mujhe dokha di issiliye nehi...
Balki isliyeh maine galat aadmi koh choose ki...
Main jaanti hoon Armaan use bohot alag hai... Lekin di... Meri dil koh kaise samjhaun...' Riddhima said while tears twinkling her eyes...



Accha Princess, Yeh batao...
Kya tumhe kuch feel nehi hota jab who tumhare khareeb aate toh...
Kya tumne accha nehi lagta jab tum use dekhte ho...
Kya tum nehi chahte who hamesha tere saamne rahe...
Jab who tumhe kahi jaane se pehle nehi batate toh kya tumhe dukh nehi hoti...
Kya tumhare aankhen use dekhne ke liye bekaraar nehi hote...
Jab who bolta hai toh, tum yeh nehi chahte who aise bolte rahe aur tum uski har baat pyaarse sunti rahe...
Kya tumhare heartbeat fast nehi hote use dekhte ... When he touch u, don't u feel current run down in ur spine...
Yeh sab hoti hai toh, trust me princess... Then u r also madly in love with him...
Kya tumne aisa kuch Armaan ki alawa kissi aur ke liye mehsoos ki... Nehi toh this is love Princess...
Ab sab kuch tumhare upar hai...
Tumhe meri salaki jarurat hai toh main bas yehi kahungi, Princess... He a dimand... Don't loose him becox of ur past...
Don't loose someone who is very treasure...
In this whole world, if u try to find someone perfect then he is the person Princess...
No one can be perfect than him...'




Riddhima keep thinking about wht Anjali just told... Every single things happen with her when she seems Armaan, when he come near her...
She never felt like that before... Not when she was with... Her so called boyfriend...
Anjali wait for Riddhima to reply her... When Riddhima didn't, Anjali got her answer... Becox if anyone keep quite, then it means she/he is in love... Anjali was really happy for her little sister...


Princess...' No respond... Anjali smile to see how much lost Riddhima was...


Princesss...' This time Anjali call a little loudly... Riddhima move her mobile away from her ear when she heart Anjali shouting...


Kya hai Di... Im not deaf...' Riddhima said... Anjali laugh before she reply her... Meri choti si princess koh pyar hogaya... Im so happy Princess... Ab jaldi se use bata doh...' Anjali said...


Di... Itni jaldi... Mujhe abhi tohda time chahiyeh... Waise bhi who yaha nehi hai...' Riddhima said standing from window sill and moving inside...


Oohh... Issiliye itna miss kar rahi hai...' Anjali tease her...


Dii...' Riddhima said while red color took over her cheeks... OMG... R u blushing Princess...' Anjali asked...
Nehi di... Im not... And haan... Main use itni aasaani se haan nhi bolungi... Main bhi dekhu, Armaan mujhse kitna pyar karte hai... Aur woh sach main mujhse pyar karte hai toh itni aasaani se haar nehi maanengi right...' Riddhima said sitting on the bed...


Wrong Princess...
Yehi Armaan aur baaki sabka difference hai...
Armaan koh haasil karna accha nehi lagta.. I mean he wouldn't run after anyone or anything becox he wants it...
He respect everyone decision...
Use kuch pasand aaye toh woh uski price koh nehi khubsurati koh dekhte hai... Wht meaning it says...
Use koi pasand aaye toh woh uski feelings koh dekhte hai... khubsurati koh nehi... Kyunki feeling uske liye mai ne rakhte hai... Khubsurati nehi...
Woh sochte hai, usko koi pasand aaye toh iska yeh matlab nehi hai saamne wale koh bhi who pasand aaye...
Waise toh har ladki ka samna hota hai Armaan ki life partner bane... Lekin u r very lucky Princess... Armaan ne... Hazaron ladki se tumhe chuna...


Lekin woh kabhi nehi chahengi tumhare haan ki bina woh yeh rishta aage lejae... Usko tumhari saat ki jarurat hai...


Tum kissi ke liye is rishte koh nibane ki baare main sochengi toh use bohot bura lagega... Lekin tum khud use ek chance dena chahte hai toh... ya tum is rishte koh dil se kabool kiya toh use bohot khushi milenge...'


Di... Aap yeh sab kaise jaante hai Armaan ke baare main...' Riddhima asked...


Princess... Don't forget teri jeeju Armaan koh uska bhai maante hai...' Anjali said laughing to her innocent sister...


Oh haan.. Lekin Di main kya karu...' Riddhima said hiding her face in her free hand as she was holding her mobile in her another hand...


Karna kya hai Princess... Iske baare main socho... Phir bhi u don't feel right, mom se baat karo... Im sure who samjhaengi tujhe...'


Di... Ma koh kaise... Waise bhi who khush hoga... U remember na ma and papa didn't say no to me... No to my happiness...' Riddhima said...


Jaanta hoon Princess... Aur yeh bhi jaanta hoon ab mom aur dad, Billy uncle aur Ananya Aunty ki bohot acche dost bhi bangaye... Woh bohot khush hongi tum Armaan koh accept karenge... Aur main bhi princess...


Lekin tum soch samajhke Armaan koh answer dena ok...'


Tik hai Di... Mujhe kuch aur time chahiyeh...' Riddhima said laying on the bed...


Take everytime u needed Princess... But I really think u need to give it a try.. He is a nice guy... Not nice... Perfect... Bohot raat hogayi, ab tum sojao... Goodnight...'


Goodnight Di... Enjoy with Jeeju...' Riddhima said laughing...


Badmaash...' Anjali said before cutting the call...

Riddhima lay looking at the ceiling... So many question were zooming around her mind... She didn't know wht to do...

Her heart was giving every signal that she was in love with Armaan Mallik... But her mind keep reminding her about her past...
I think mujhe Armaan koh ek chance dena chahiyeh... Dekhte hai... Lekin pehle main bhi dekhu jo Di ne kaha who sach hai ya nehi...
Kyunki sach main Armaan mujhe majboor nehi karenge toh iska yeh matlab hai ki who jabardasti se yeh rishta jodna nehi chahte.. Meri haan bohot important hai uske liye... Meri khushi ki saat saat... Deciding wht she would do to test Armaan, Riddhima closed her eyes to meet her dream guy in her sweet dreams...

 .................................................................................
One week past and Armaan hasn't come back yet... Riddhima didn't get any call from him... She ask her secetry about it and she also don't have any idea... In the past one week, Riddhima miss him very much... Her confusion was clear now...
Every time she think about her, blush took place in her cheeks...

After two whole weeks Armaan came back... They got the deal and Armaan was very happy... First thing he did was arrange a meeting to let everyone knows about them getting the deal and they got 5months to complete it...
The one who would be the busiest was Riddhima... She had to design new clothes and if they aprove, they will go with it...

After meeting everyone go back to their work... The day went like that, Riddhima didn't get a chance to talk with Armaan... And whenever she try he walk out or always be busy with his phone...
Days past like this... Riddhima sense Armaan was somehow ignoring her... Armaan didn't talk him normally like he used to talk before... Only if anything related to work, then only he talks with her...

Riddhima believe whtever Anjali said it was true... Armaan is very different from others... But why didn't he try one more time... Maybe its not his way to make anything his... Not atleast by forcing... Riddhima was really happy after all she fall for someone who matter others feeling... Not that one happiness... Thinking about all this Riddhima thought now it was time her to confess... How she feel for him... Wht she wants...


ARMAAN POV...

After two whole weeks I saw her... I feel so happy.. But when I remember she didn't want to give a chance to my love, I feel really sad...
Wht was my fault... I know she face so horrible in her past...
Why don't she trust me im not a person like other..
Its ok... If she think she couldn't give me a chance... It's fine... I wouldn't force her... But how Am I to control my self when I had to face her everyday... Specially when we r to work with each other...
I hope I could be able to control my emotions...
When I saw her today, Again I fall in love with her... How am I going to make my heart understand we can't be together...
If she looks so beautiful every passing day, how Am I going to control my feelings...
Its been more then a month now... I havent talk to her like before... I try to stay away from her... Im scared wht if I cross my limit... No... I wouldn't let happen... Not without her permission...
Why I feel she wants to be friends like before... She really think we can be... I really want to talk her like before... but... I don't know why... My heart is not listening to me...
The few times I talk to her in working hrs, I just keep staring her most of the time...
I wish, I wish to take her in my arms... Feel her.. Care her pinkish lips...
but, its my bad luck I wouldn't be able... Not ever again...
It was better when I didn't let her know about my feeling...
Atleast I could have talk to her like friends...
Now I couldn't do anything... But still I wish she would give me a chance... Then I wouldn't let any sorrow come near her... I wouldn't let anyone hurt her... Give pain to her...
I will protect her always... Like I do for My mom, dad, Nikki and my friends...
Promise Riddhima, if u r mine or not... My love for u will be always the same... It will increase... Becox u r the only one I want to marry... No one else could take the place in my heart... becox its already urs...
I love u Riddhima... I love u a lot...

END OF ARMAAN POV...

 .................................................................................................
Both were thinking and missing each other... Riddhima was planning to confess where as Armaan didn't had a clue his wish would come true soon... 



PART 13...


Days past and Riddhima try to talk with Armaan...
Armaan keep busy him in work and didn't let Riddhima get a chance to talk with him alone...
Riddhima accept wht she didn't wasn't right and she should have given him a chance atleast... Now it was getting difficult for her to spend the day not talking to him like before...

On the other side, Armaan was trying his best to keep himself away from Riddhima... He knows she doesn't deserve this behavior from his side... But he doesn't want to let her take his mind and heart when she really wasn't to be his...
Before Armaan confess his feeling, he knows she is her good friend... Actually his best friend and best partner anyone could get...
But knowing she didn't think him more than her friend, he wants to controll his feeling for her... Thinking it was just one side love... One side feeling...
Armaan was working late at night... He thought like always everyone left... He didn't know Riddhima who was in her cabin was waiting to get a chance to talk with him...
Armaan look at the time and saw it was already 1 at night... Swtich off his lap, he rests his head on his chair...
Aaj ek baar bhi Riddhima koh nehi dekha...' He thought while his eyes were closed...
Why my heart is not listening to me...
Why my love for her keep growing and growing... Knowing that she is not willing to give a chance to me, to our relation more than friendship...
Why Riddhima... Why u r taking over my heart and mind...
Not only that...
U didn't let me sleep even now...
Coming in my dreams...
Smiling, showing the love and care...
Why Riddhima...
Why I couldn't control my mind and heart... Why...'
Armaan move closed to the table putting his hand on the table and holding his head in his palm... Tusnami was going inside his mind and heart... Thinking about Riddhima everytime he gets...
Knock knocks...' Someone was on the door... Armaan thought it would be the guard so he said Come in' not looking at the door...
Armaan...'
Armaan look at the one who was standing there... He wasn't expecting her to be here this late...
Tum yaha.. Ghar nehi gayi...'


Armaan... Mujhe tumse baat karni hai...' She said... She moves inside and standing in front of him...


Riddhima... Abhi bohot der hogayi... Chalo main tumhe ghar tak chod deti hoon...' Armaan said collecting his belonging...

Armaan... Please... Mujhe tumse baat karni hai...' Riddhima said...

Riddhima... We can talk... But let's leave now... We can talk on the way back to home...' Saying this Armaan move out from his cabin...


Riddhima was wondering why he was ignoring her... Doesn't he feel how badly she needs to talk to him... She was happy he would be droping her home.. Atleast she wouldn't get some time to spend and talk with him...


Riddhima came out to see Armaan waiting near his car... When he saw her coming, he sit in the driver seat and wait for her to come and sit...


Riddhima sit and he drove off...
One the way back for 10mins Armaan didn't say anything... Neither Riddhima knows how to start the conversation... Awkward moments were going between them not knowing wht to say to each other...


Armaan...' Riddhima call him breaking the silent between them...


Hmmm...' Armaan who was looking infront to the road...


Tum mujhe ignore kyu kar rahe ho...' Riddhima asked looking at him...

Nehi toh...' Armaan said...

Phir jab bhi main baat karne ki koshish karti hoon toh tum kaam beech main laakhe baat koh kyu daalte ho...' Riddhima asked...


Before answering her, Armaan took a little time...
Riddhima... Kyunki aajkal bohot kaam hai...' Armaan said...


Armaan... I know kaam hai lekin pehle bhi tum time nikalke mujhse baat karte hai... Mere saat lunch karte hai lekin ab...' Riddhima look at her hand as tears come to her eyes..


If u r thinking Im change after I confess u Riddhima, then aisa kuch nehi hai... Dad is not coming to office and mujhe sab kuch handle karna hai... U knows it right...' Armaan said looking at her and saw her looking at her hand...

Armaan saw how much sad she was but he couldn't help...
He is afraid if he be friends with her, he may cross his limit by getting emotion...
He don't want anything to happen between them without her permission...


Armaan... We r still friend na...' Riddhima asked...


Armaan didn't know wht to say... Becox he never thinks she was just a friend... She is more than a friend for him from the very first time... How could he just be friends with her...


Ofcourse Riddhima... We r friends...' Armaan said...


Rest of the drive, they didn't talk to each other...
Riddhima keep looking at him and whenever he turn to look at him, she turn her face other side...
And same goes with Armaan... He keeps looking at her every second he get and knows she was looking at him too...


ATUL MANSION...

Anjali was thinking about Riddhima and Armaan... She knows Riddhima wouldn't tell about her feelings to anyone... She is still afraid of her past...
Atul wasn't back and Anjali was waiting forhim...Recollecting last night conversation with Riddhima she keep smiling knowing her princess will get a happy life with Armaan if she is willing to give a chance to Armaan...


Anjali... Kis baat pe smile kar rahi ho...' Anjali look to see Atul coming and placing the bag on the coffee table he sit next to her...


Bas aise hi Ridzy ki baare main...' Anjali said...


Ridzy ki...'


Haan... Pata hai Atul...' Saying this Anjali told him her conversation about hers and Riddhima...

Atul was really happy for Armaan and specially Riddhima...


Mujhe pata hai Armaan use pasand karta hai bohot pehlese... Aur humhare Ridzy... Woh bhi...
Aur mujhe yeh bhi pata hai Ridzy itni aasaani se apni feelings koh kissi ki saamne nehi kahengi...
Anjali...
Hum dono ne tumhare Dad aur Mom ki saat dekha Ridzy kaise tuta ta us waqt...
Hum sabne use kaise sambhala yeh humse accha koi aur nehi jaante...
Lekin Armaan bilkul us ladke se alag hai...' Atul said...


Mujhe pata hai Atul...
Bas ab Riddhima ki decision ke liye rukhna chahiyeh humhe... Kyunki uski khushi humhari khushi hai...' Anjali said...


I hope woh Armaan koh ek chance de...' Atul said...


Main bhi... Chalo tum fresh hoke aao... Main khaana lagati hoon..' Anjali said moving to the kitchen when Atul move to get a cool shower after a long busy day...


After a week it was Valentine day...
Anjali call up to the girls including Nikki too to come and have a girl's night in Atul Mansion...
Atul went out of station and wouldn't be back before Valentine day...
It was Saturday night and Anjali was expecting everyone to be there by 8pm so they could enjoy dinner and do some gossip...
Anjali finished making dinner and was arranging dishes on table when the bell rings...
She open the door to see Muskaan and Sapna smiling and when she open they hugs her making her loose her balance...

Girls... Sambhalke... Mujhe girane ka iraada hai kya...' Anjali said balancing and responding their hug...


Anjy... So happy to see u after so many days...' Muskaan said...


Kash main bhi aise keh sakti...' Sapna said moving inside...


Ya.. U girl's r so lucky at least tum dono toh ek dusre se din main mil sakte hai...' Muskaan said leaving Anjali to closed the door...


Ridzy kaha hai... Tum logo ke saat nehi aaye...' Anjali asked...
Muskaan and Sapna through their bags on the floor near by the sofa and sit...
Madam koh tohdi der hojaenge...' Muskaan said closing her eyes resting her back... Aaah... Tired day...'
Girls... Mujhe tum dono koh Ridzy ki bare main kuch batana hai...' Anjali said sitting next to them...
Both sit proper hearing this and seems like they were fresh to hear news about Riddhima...
Wow... Ridzy ki bare main... Kya kiya...' Muskaan asked getting excited...
Actually not Ridzy only... It's about Ridzy and Armaan...' Anjali said...
Atul and Anjali talk about making Riddhima confess about her feeling to Armaan...
And also Atul asked to get the hell of Sapna and Muskaan... So Anjali thought it would be better if she invite them and talk face to face...
Ridzy and Armaan...' Sapna asked questions writing all over her face... Sapna and Muskaan exchange looks and wait for Anjali to continuous...
Actually like a week before, Ridzy tell me about it... I wasn't get time to tell u girls about this...' Anjali start...
its ok Anjy... Yeh toh batao kya bataya Ridzy ne...' Muskaan said...
Woh...' Anjali couldn't tell more when the door bell rings...
Shit... Bad timing... Maybe its Ridzy... Main baad main bataungi...' Saying this Anjali went to open the door and it was Nikki only...
Hi Bhabhi...' Nikki said hugging Anjali...
Hey Niks... On time... Aao...' Anjali welcome her and both move inside ...
Hi girls...' Nikki says when she saw Muskaan and Sapna sitting in the hall...
Hey Nikki...' Sapna said...
Hi Nikki... Aaaja...' Muskaan said giving space to her to sit on the sofa...
Ridzy nehi aayi...' Nikki asked looking around...
Anjali came with juice as they wouldn't be having dinner without Riddhima...
Haan who tohdi der main aajaengi...' Sapna said...
So kya baate hai ho rahi hai...' Nikki asked taking a glass of juice which Anjali offer her...
Kuch khaas nehi bas aise hi...' Sapna said as she saw Anjali asking from eyes not to say as Armaan was her brother... Nikki saw this and Anjali turn her back to her and offer juice to Muskaan...
Ummm... Seems like u girls didn't want to talk infront of me about it...' Nikki said...
Arey aisa kuch nehi hai Nikki... hum toh bas Ridzy aur Armaan ki...' Muskaan stop...
Anjali and Sapna glare at her for telling it to Nikki...
Oh... Bhai Aur Ridzy ki bare main... Waise mujhe sab pata hai... Don't worry... U can trust me I wouldn't say anything...' Nikki said sipping her juice...
Kya pata hai tumhe Niks...' Anjali asked...
Yehi ki bhai loves Ridzy and Ridzy too have feelings for him but something is making her stop confessing her love to him...' Nikki said...
Wht...' Sapna and Muskaan shouted and Nikki got scared of suddenly shout...
Kya tum dono koh nehi pata...' Nikki said looking at them both...
Haan... Anjy yehi batane wali ti lekin use pehle tumne bell ring ki toh...' Sapna said...
Sach main Armaan loves Ridzy... And wht about Ridzy...' Muskaan asked still not believing her ears...
Nikki look at Anjali who asked to tell them wht happen...
Nikki told them when Armaan first saw her, from the first sight it was love to him...
How he try to find her past 2yrs, waiting for that girl to come back to his life...
How he confess and Ridzy reject him...
How broken he was and about the room he kept his every happy memory which is related to Riddhima...
She talk to Riddhima and feels even she loves him but something was stopping her from accepting and confessing even she loves Armaan...
Sapna and Muskaan keep exchanging and looking at Nikki and Anjali...
This whole time no one say anything while Nikki tell them everything she knows...
Ridzy still didn't get over with it...' Muskaan said thinking about past...
It wouldn't be easy u know but...' Sapna said...
Girls... I really don't know wht happen in Riddhima past... But im sure it's related to relations...
I think Ridzy koh past accept karke aage badna chahiyeh... I mean every man r not same... Especially bhai...
Use toh kaam ke aage kuch dikhai nehi dete... Lekin jabse Ridzy koh dekha, it seems he got a new life...' Nikki said...
Others didn't say anything...
I know u r right Nikki... I told her the same when she shares all that wht happen between her and Armaan with me...' Anjali said...
Muskaan and Sapna look at her asking wht she told her... Anjali tell them about their conversation and she had make her realized she also got feelings for him...
Also tell them that she asked to give one chance to him and she agreed that she will think about it...
I hope Ridzy make a good decision about this... We all know Armaan wouldn't be much nicer then anyone... And Ridzy wouldn't get someone like Armaan...' Sapna said...
I have thought about something girls...
As Valentine day is next week, why don't we just make her agree to confess on that day... Special day for special occasion...' Anjali said..
Gr8 idea...' Muskaan said...
Lekin how r we gonna bring the topic...' Sapna asked...
Point... And don't forget she didn't tell us anything about her and Armaan...

Anjy u know becox she told and Nikki knows becox Armaan is her bhai and she had talk to Ridzy about it...' Muskaan said...

Anjali and Nikki look at each other... Then an idea click in Nikki mind...
Girls... We r girls right... So wht we often do when we get together... GOSSIP...
We will talk about lovers... Tonight topic...
I know Anjy is married but still hum teeno aur Ridzy haina...' She said winking at them...
Everyone agrees it would be a good way...
Sapna check the time and it was 9 already... Riddhima wasn't there yet...
Yeh Ridzy kaha reh gayi...' Sapna said...
Main phone karke poochti hoon...' Anjali said...
Anjali was to dial her number but before she could bell ring and she was glad at last she reach and soon everyone was having dinner...
They attack the foods like teenagers... Talking and teasing each other they finished dinner...
After dinner they went to room and change for their night dress... Everyone sit on the bed... Anjali was sitting resting her back on the bed board while Riddhima was laying down resting her head on her lap... Anjali keep caring her hair...
Muskaan was laying resting her hand on Riddhima stomach while Sapna was laying on her on the bed on her stomach with her legs up and moving it...
Nikki was sitting next to her...
It so nice at last we got time to get together and have some fun...' Ridzy said...
Hum toh kabhi bhi kar sakte hai... Lekin kya karu... Koi bohot busy rehte hai...' Muskaan said...
Haan... Aur suna hai phirse ek deal mila hai...' Sapna said...
Arey, maine kabhi mana kya kiya aise milne ke liye...' Riddhima asked knowing they were talking about her...
Nehi.. Lekin humhe pata hai tum nehi aapaengi... Kyu Sapna...' Muskaan said...
Haan.. Aajkal Armaan ki aas paas jo ghumte hai hum dono kit oh yaad bhi nehi aati..' Sapna said making a sad face...
Riddhima wasn't expecting anything comment like this... They her two friends shamelessly took Armaan name... That too infront of Nikki...
Nikki smiles looking at Riddhima who look at her and Riddhima gave her a nervous smile...
Kya tum dono...
Accha yeh sab chodo...
Di... Valentine day is coming... Any special thing for Atul jeeju...' Riddhima said changing the topic not knowing she was actually starting the real topic for the night...
Oye... Tujhe kabse yeh Valentine day pe itni interests hone lagi...' Muskaan asked before Anjali could answer Riddhima...
Kahin tujhe koi mila toh nehi Valentine celebrate karne ke liye...' Sapna asked sitting on the bed showing a surprise expression which was an act of course...
Kya hai yaar tum dono... Main kuch bhi poochte toh mujhe waapas sawal kyu karte ho..
maine toh bas aise poocha...
Di ki shaadi ki baad pehli Valentine day hai aur woh har koi lover celebrate karte hai... Aur di toh jabse Atul jeeju mila hai tabse celebrate karte hai if u two forget...' Riddhima reply them...
Haan toh poochne main aur tujhe humko batane main kya jaata hai...'Muskaan said...
Aur tu itna gussa kyu ho rahi ho.. Humne toh bas poocha...
Aur u knows wht Ridzy...
Jab koi aise gussa hoti hai toh iska matlab kuch aur hota hai...' Sapna said winking at her...
Main gussa nehi hoon...
Waise bhi tum dono bhi is baar Valentine day main busy hogana...' Riddhima said...
She knows Muskaan was secretly dating with Rahul and Sapna was with Amit... This make them both shut...
Haan toh Anjy batao... Kya special karne wali ho Jeeju ke liye...'Muskaan asked not letting Riddhima to say anything further...
Dekho... Dono kaise Sharma rahi hai... Amit aur Rahul toh tum dono ki aise laal laal cheeks dekhte toh fida huva hai...' Riddhima said teasing Muskaan and Sapna...
They look at her as saying if she doesn't keep shut, they will kill her... Riddhima laugh seeing their face and enjoying it...
Kya Ridzy... Chup raho...' Anjali said...
Arey Di... Maine kiya kya... In dono koh kitne bola mujhe aise sawal poochne ke liye...
Aur tum dono koh pata haina mujhe tum dono se judi har news pata hai... I have a secret agent who gives me every single information about u two...' Riddhima said controlling her laugh...
Ridzy tu chup rahi nehi toh mujhe bhi teri ek secret pata hai...' Muskaan warn her...
Anjali and Nikki got alert hearing this... Even Riddhima stop laughing...
Muskaan laugh at her typical laugh.
Giving hi5 to Sapna, Dekho Ridzy ki face...'
Muski ki bacchi...' Riddhima was about to get up and hit her Anjali pull her back...
Ok time out... No fighting ok...
Ab yeh toh pata chala Muskaan aur Sapna have boyfriend... Wht about u Nikki...' Anjali asked...
Nikki looks at Anjali as she wasn't expecting she will be the next target... Anjali wink at her letting her know it was to carry with the plan..
Aisa koi mila nehi hai mujhe abhi tak... Waise bhi bhai mujhe akele kahin jaane nehi deti toh I only goes collage...' Nikki reply as a shy smile plays on her lip...
Koi toh hoga... I mean crush...' Muskaan said...
Promise karo tum log kissi koh nehi batengi... Not boy's becox u knows they will tell bhai...' Nikki said...
Means hai... I promise I wouldn't tell anyone...' Sapna said...
Others promise too...
Woh Dad ki friend ki beta hai... Mujhe uska real name nehi pata... Nickname is Abhi...' Nikki said while red shade took on her cheeks...
Cool...' Muskaan and Sapna said together...
Toh yeh toh pata chala sabko Valentine mili hai...' Ridzy said...
Aur tumhe Ridzy...' Muskaan asked...
Please Muski... U knows na... I don't...' Riddhima stop when she saw Anjali and Nikki staring at her...
Ridzy.. U knows u can't lie to me and Muskaan...' Sapna said...
Riddhima look at Anjali who blink her eyes saying tell them... They have been her best friend from years... Riddhima knows they deserve it...
Riddhima sit on the bed facing to Muskaan and Sapna...
Actually Muski... Sapna... I know I should have told u both these that time only but I was confused...
Actually na...' Riddhima said...
Why u r hesitating Ridzy... U knows u can tell us anything... We r ur friends... and we want u to be happy Ridzy...' Sapna said...
Actually... Someone ... Propose me...' Riddhima said...
Wht...' Muskaan stand on the bed and Sapna just hit her forehead thinking how over react Muskaan do... They decided they wouldn't let Riddhima knows Anjali and Nikki already tell them about Riddhima and Armaan...
Oye tu beitjana Muski...
Haan woh ek week pehle propose kya ta...' Riddhima said pulling her hand and make her sit...
Koan hai woh paagal... Jo tujhe propose kya...' Muskaan said...
Dekho Muski... Woh paagal nehi hai... Aur kyu... Koi mujhe propose nehi kar sakti kya...' Riddhima said...
Muski... Please chup raho...
Ridzy bolo koan hai woh...
Aur tumne kya kaha...' Sapna said...
Common Sapna, Ridzy toh obviously No bolengi... Kyu Ridzy...' Muskaan said...
Sapna glare at her and turn to Riddhima asking her to answer her...
Haan Muski... U r right... Maine use na bola...' Riddhima said as sadness took place in her face...
Koan hai woh...' Sapna asked...
Riddhima look at Nikki and Anjali... They nod their head asking her to tell further...
Armaan...' Riddhima said closing her eyes waiting to hear their reaction... But when she didn't hear either of reply, she opens her eyes to see both looking at her shocked...
Riddhima look at Anjali asking for help to bring them back from shock...
Anjali shake Muskaan by her shoulder and Riddhima tap Sapna shoulder...
Armaan... Ridzy... Tumne Armaan koh no bola...' Muskaan said when she came out from the shocked...
Ridzy... R u still not able to move on ur life... I mean I know it will be difficult u to believe... But atleast uski feelings ka toh socha hota...
We all know how much workaholic Armaan is...
In front of his work he didn't see anything else...' Sapna said...
Sapna..Maine kaha na main confused ti...' Riddhima said...
Ti ka kiya matlab hai Ridzy... Abhi clear hogaya ki tum Armaan ke bare main kya sochte ho...' Muskaan asked...
Riddhima nod her head not meeting her eyes with anyone...
Matlab...' Anjali and Nikki asked...
Matlab maine socha main Armaan koh ek chance du... Yeh rishte koh ek chance du...' Riddhima said...
Next second Nikki, Anjali, Muskaan and Sapna hugs her making her choked...
Girlsss... Leave me... Nehi toh main Armaan koh meri feelings batane se pehle upar poach jaungi...' Riddhima said...
Hearing this everyone leaves her and hugs each other leaving Riddhima to catch her breath and controlling her breath...
Anjali came and hug her little princess... Tears shining in everyone eyes... Riddhima saw this...
OMG... Nikki jaldi jaakhe ek bucket le aao... Yaha tsunami aane wali hai... .dekho dekho yeh teeno rone wali hai...' Riddhima said and next second she reserve a smash from Muskaan...
Ouch Muski...' Riddhima said caring her arms...
Aise baat karengi toh aisa hi hoga...
But Ridzy... We r really happy for u...' Muskaan said hugging her...
Ab yeh bhi batao tum kab batane wali ho Armaan koh...' Sapna asked...
Haan... Bhai toh bohot khush hoga...' Nikki said...
Any special thing u r doing Ridzy...' Anjali asked...
Haan di... Main sab kuch socha... Lekin uske liye tum logo koh meri help karna hoga...' Riddhima said...
Yeh bhi koi kehne wali baat hai... Ofcourse we will be glad to help u Ridzy...' Sapna said...

Riddhima tell them about her plan and they agree to help with her...
Like this they keep talking whole night... Teasing, fighting and gossiping...

Next week end like as if they just blink and open their eyes...
As boys didn't remember about the Valentine day coming as they were busy in their respective work...
Anjali and other girls make the list and invite everyone...
They decide to give party in Atul Mansion...
Everyone invite their friends and their partner...

Anjali and Riddhima did every decoration...

Five girls handle everything without any boys help...
They decide to invite then one day before Valentine day...


DAY BEFORE VALENTINE DAY...

Anjali call Riddhima who was in office...
Anjali call to remind her to invite Armaan...
Anjali has been calling for everyone past one hr...
Di... Bas main use ghar jaane se pehle bata dungi...Mujhe abhi bohot kaam hai...' Riddhima said as er design was lying in front of her on the table... She holds her mobile in left hand and in right hand she was holding pencil...
She was scratching the design as she wasn't happy the way it was... So she was making some changes...
Ridzy...
Its lunch time already yaar...
Aur kitna kaam karte ho...' Anjali said...

Tik hai... Abhi main rakhti hoon... See u...' Anjali cut the call and Riddhima went back to her work...
She didn't know a pair of blue eyes was watching every moment of her...


ARMAAN POV...

Valentine Day was coming...
First time in my life I wish I could be with a girl in Valentine day...
Not only any random girl...
With Riddhima only...
I secretly keep looking at her while she works everyday...
As we got a new deal and we had to complete it before the time, Riddhima was putting all the effect she could...
She has been working for hrs in days and I came to know she has been skipping her meals...
I wish I could go and pull her out from her cabin and take her to canteen or out for lunch like we used to have before...
Yeh kya ho raha hai mujhe...
Kyu mere dil manta nehi hai...
Jo nehi ho sakta uske baare main sochte kyu hai yeh...
Riddhima main kehdiya...
Saaf lafzo main ki woh mujhe chance nehi de sakte...
Phir kyu mujhe uska haan ka inthizaar hai...
Kyu mujhe uski aankho main apne liye pyar dekha...
Kyu mere dhandkane badte hai jab main use dekhta hoon...
Kyu mera dil bechain hote hai use dekhne ke liye...
Mere aankh taras jaate hai uski ek jhalak dekhne ke liye...
Kya sach main Riddhima mere liye kuch mehsus nehi karti...
Ya woh yeh sab ek dar ki wajahse abhi tak chupa rahi hai...
Kyu Riddhima...
Kyu khud ki saat saat mujhe bhi tadpa rahi ho...
Kyu apni aapko jhut bol rahi ho...
Kyu mujhse sach chupa rahhi ho...
Kyu Riddhima...
Kya huva hai ki tum kissi bhi insaan ko itna trust nehi karte...'
All these question keeps roaming around my mind day and night...
Smile come to my face when I see her in front of my eyes...
My heart and eyes always want to see her In front of my eyes...
I look at her, who was sitting near her desk...
She was stretching and making faces as it didn't go the way she wants...
Kitni khubsurat lagti hai...
Koi itna khubsurat kaise ho sakta hai...
Uski aankhe...
Mann karta hai use kho jaun...'
Unknowingly I started to admire her...
Uski nose... Jo hamesha twist karte hai jab woh confused ho jati hai toh...
Uski cheeks...
Which always shows a pinkish shade...
Last but not the least... Her rosy lips...
Sometimes smile took place while sometimes she pouts...
She always looks beautiful...'
I saw her putting her pencil in her mouth and looking at the design thinking something...
Then again she started to stretch and soon she was done...
I was waiting for my company model to come as I had to talk with her...
As nothing was important to do around that little time I move closed to the glass window so I could catch Riddhima sight...


END OF ARMAAN POV...
 ..........................................................................................................................

There was a knock on the door and Armaan give permission to come without looking at who it was...
His eyes were busy looking at Riddhima and admiring her...
He turn when he heard a girl says Hi...'
Armaan turn around to see the most important model in his company... Tani...
Like usual, she was wearing short dress letting her long legs bare...
She came and hugs him which Armaan return... He always feels uncomfortable to be around her as she always tries to hit him...
Sit... Mujhe tumse next fashions show ki baare main baat karna hai...' Armaan show her the chair and sit in his chair...
Armaan tell her everything about the show...
They were busy discussing when there was another knock...
Armaan look up and saw Riddhima standing... She was staring something which was on her hand and Armaan said coming...
Riddhima came and was little surprise to see Tani there... Riddhima forgot why she came there as soon as she saw Tani...
Hi Riddhima...' Tani said giving her a smile...
Hi Tani...' Then she faces to Armaan...
Sir yeh aapke liye Mr. and Mrs. Joshi ne bheja...' Riddhima said giving him a card...
Kya hai yeh...' before Armaan could take it, Tani snatch it from Riddhima...
Riddhima glare at her with disgusting writing all over her face...
Armaan look at her expression and was enjoying the color it was coming and going...
Armaan feels Riddhima was jealous to see Tani in his cabin...
He knows Riddhima don't like her much just bare her for the sake of their company...
Looking at Armaan who was lost in his thought looking at Tani direction, Riddhima feels her anger go over her height...
Not saying anything she left the room...
Wow... Valentine party in JOSHI MANSION...
Lekin Kissine mujhe invite nehi kiya...' Tani said giving Armaan back his card...
That's sad...
And I wouldn't be going either...' Armaan said... Not even bother to look at the card...
Why not... And for ur information Armaan, there is another note for u...'
I will check later...
Can we continuo with wht I was telling u about the show...' Armaan asked knowing her mind was on the party now...
Tani nod and them continue talking...


RIDDHIMA POV...

I enter thinking that I would get a chance to Armaan...
But to my disappointment someone else was already there...
Tani, one of the important and special models in our company...
She said hi when she saw me...
From the very first day I didn't like her... I just bare her for the sake of Mallik company...
If not I would have thrown her out showing her the right place for her...
She always try to flirt with MY ARMAAN...
MY ARMAAN...
From when he becomes ur Armaan...
Very first day my eye laid on him...
Yes... From that time, feelings started to built in my heart for him...
Unknowingly, its keep growing day by day...'
Yes!!!
Today I came to know it was Armaan who she has been waiting from very long...
Only he was the perfect man for her...
I look at Armaan and forward the card but before he could take it, Tani snatch it from her...
She glare at her while anger were in my eyes...
I look at Armaan who was lost in Tani and my anger goes above my height...
Without saying anything or looking at Tani, giving her a disgusting look, I just leave the place...
I came to my cabin and sit on my chair...
Samjhte kya hai khud koh yah Tani ki bacchi...
Boss saamne beita huva ta aur uski saamne hi meri haath se...
Aur yeh Armaan koh kya hogaya hai...
Use aise dekh raha ta ki aur koi waha ti yeh bhi nehi pata use...
Idiot... Moron... Kamina...'

RIDDHIMA POV END...
 .........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Riddhima went back to her work giving words to Armaan and Tani...
She just hates that girl Tani and it seems like Armaan was really enjoying her company...

It was around 6 when Riddhima finished her work for the day...
Today she ends early as she had to leave to meet Anjali and others...
She came out and thought to check on Armaan as she had to take permission as she needs a leave the next day...
Riddhima saw Armaan working busily and she knocks...
without looking Armaan asked to come in and Riddhima open the door...
Riddhima feels winds blow around her making her hair fly...
Thinking she might feel like that, she moves inside...
Armaan mujhe tumse baat karni hai...' Riddhima said when Armaan didn't look up to see who came...
Kya baat hai Riddhima...' Armaan asked checking some file in his lap...
Woh mujhe kal chutti chahiyeh...' Riddhima said...
Armaan look at her...
Chutti... Kyu...'
Kyunki mujhe kuch kaam hai...' Riddhima said...
Kya kaam hai... Valentine day ki party ki tayyari karni hai...' Armaan ask resume his work...
haan who bhi aur mujhe kal subah Mom koh leke hospital bhi jaana hai...' Riddhima said...
Armaan look at her again...
He didn't know Padma was sick...
Kya huva Aunty koh...' Armaan asked worries writing all over his face...
Don't worry... Just for monthly check up... Woh sirf meri saat chalti hai toh...' Riddhima said...
Ok...' Armaan said...
Thanks...' Riddhima turn around to leave but wait...
She looks at Armaan who was still busy with his lap...
Ek baat poochu...' Riddhima asked...
Armaan look at her and nod his head...
Tum kal party pe aayenge na...' Riddhima asked praying that he would say yes...
Don't know yet... Mujhe jaruri kaam ke liye raat koh nikalna hai... So will try to make it before the party end...' Armaan said...
Riddhima face fall hearing his reply...
She knows a party wouldn't be important for him more than his work...
Ok... I wish u could make it... Will be happy if u could be there...' Riddhima leave after saying this...
Armaan was surprise to hear this...
Was Riddhima really wants Armaan to be in the Party...
Or just she said becox their other friends will be their too...
Wht she means by she will be happy...
She really wants me to...'
Armaan was lost thinking wht Riddhima mean by that simple sentence...


ON THE NIGHT OF VALENTINE DAY...

It was crowded by the time of 10pm...
Lovers were enjoying the time with their partners...
It was only Riddhima who was sitting in a corner of the room waiting for someone who hasn't shown yet...
Ridzy... Yaha kyu beite ho...
Chalo na... Dance karte hai...' Atul came with Anjali who sit next to Riddhima...
Nehi Atul...
Im really in no mood to...' Riddhima said not looking at either of them...
Aise kaise chalega Ridzy...
U has to dance yaar...' Atul said sitting on the other side of her...
Please jeej...' Riddhima said...
Armaan ka waits kar rahi hona...' Anjali said near her eyes so that Atul couldn't hear her...
Music was so loud and they wouldn't know wht each other speak if they don't say it near their ears...
Riddhima nod and look at the time, it was already 10 30 now...
She was praying in her heart he would come before 12...
Aajaenge... Don't worry...'
Just then Muskaan and Sapna came both all wet...
Tum dono koh kya huva...
Bheeg kaise gayi...' Anjali look at them...
U wouldn't believe it Anji... It's raining outside heavily...' Sapna said drying her cloth...
Tum dono jaakhe kapde dry karlo...' Anjali said and both Sapna and Muskaan left...
Anjali saw Nikki standing near the drinks talking to some guest...
Wait... Main abhi aati hoon...' Saying this Anjali leave Riddhima with Atul...
Anjali came and excuse others and took Nikki away from them...
Teri bhai kaha hai...' Anjali asked...
Abhi tak aaya nehi...' Nikki asked looking at the time...
haan... Issiliyeh toh pooch rahi hoon Niks...' Anjali said...
Main call karti hoon...' Nikki move away from there as music was hell loud...
She came after 3mins and said Armaan was on his way...
Ridzy bohot derse inthizaar kar rahi hai...' Anjali said looking at Riddhima who was laughing to some joke Atul crack...
I just hope them to be together... Happily and forever...' Nikki said looking the direction...
Same here...'
By the time Muskaan and Sapna came back...
They were dancing with their respective partners...
Atul took Riddhima with him and started to dance with her...
Riddhima was push suddenly and she saw Tani...
Yes!!!
Tani was invited as she was a staff of Mallik Enterprise and Anjali had invite every staff...
Sorry Riddhima... Woh main Armaan koh abhi dekha na... Jaldi main ti toh...' She said apologizing and moving away...
As she hears Armaan name, she looks around to spot him talking with Anjali and Nikki...
Smile came to her face and next second it vanished seeing Tani hugging him and holding his arm like he only belongs to her...
Riddhima anger boils and she excuses her and went to get a drink...
It was 11 15 and Riddhima was getting really pissed off seeing Tani getting closed with Armaan every chance she gets...
And seems like Armaan was also enjoying it makes her anger go high each and every time she look at them...
Idea got in her mind and taking a drink, she move to them...
She slips the drink on to Tani dress and she moves to clean...
Why u did it...' Armaan asked...
Wht did I do...' Riddhima ask as if she didn't know wht Armaan was talking about...
U slip the drink on her dress... Why Riddhima...' Armaan ask facing her...
Becox she was getting closed to u...' Riddhima said...
Armaan was happy to know Riddhima was getting jealous to see Tani around him..
He thought to tease her further...
So wht...
Ab jisko aana hai woh aayengi na...' Armaan said...
Wht...
Tum aise kaise kissi bhi ladki koh apne paas aane de sakte hai...' Riddhima asked...
Jisko main chahti hoon mere paas ho, woh nehi chahte toh main kya karu...' Armaan said...
Toh iska yeh matlab nehi haina ki tum koi bhi ladki koh...' Riddhima said that much and stop...
Kyu... Tumhe kyu itna fark pad raha hai...' Armaan said moving closed...
Kuch nhi... Mujhe koi fark nehi padti...' Riddhima said moving back...
Fine than...' Armaan said...
Tani was back and Armaan took her to the dance floor...
Now DJ was playing slow romantic numbers...
Armaan was getting closed to Tani just to see if it effects to Riddhima or not...
and he knows when Riddhima left from their seeing them dancing closed...
Armaan excuse saying he had to make a call and came outside with to see Riddhima standing near the door... When she saw Armaan coming she moves to go out into the rain... But Armaan hold her hand...
Leave my hand Armaan...
Kyu aaye ho yaha... Jaakhe us Tani ki saat chipakte dance karo...' Riddhima said...
Armaan sniff like as he can smell something... Kuch jal raha haina...' he said with a naughty smile on his face...
Riddhima glare at him and said... Main nehi jal rahi hoon...'
Maine kab kaha tum jal rahi ho...Main kaha kuch jal raha hai...' Armaan said...
Riddhima just free her hand from his hold and move out into the rain...
Riddhima... Kaha jaa rahi ho...' Armaan said coming after him...
Main kahin bhi jaun...
Tumhe kya hai Armaan... Jao us Tani ki paas...' Riddhima said as she make way to the garden...
Itna gussa kyu ho rhi ho...' Armaan asked...
Kya fark padta hai main gussa hoon ya nehi... Tumhe jo karna hai karo...
Jiski saat dance karna hai... Karo... Just leave me alone Armaan...' Riddhima said...
Armaan hold her arm and pull her towards him... She bump to his chest with her hand landed on his muscle chest...
Tumhe itna kyu fark pad raha hai ki main Tani ki saat closed dance kiya toh...' Armaan ask holding her by her shoulder...
Kyunki...' Riddhima was to tell him and when she looks at his eyes, she was lost in them...
Kyunki kya Riddhima...
Batao...
Kyun tumhe itna fark pad rahi hai...
Tum toh mujhse pyar bhi nehi karti na...
Aur mujhe ek chance bhi nehi dena chahte hai...
Toh phir aaj kyu fark pad rahi hai tumhe main Tani ki saat itna closed huva..
Kyu Riddhima...'
Armaan ask as the rain was falling down to their clothes washing it and them both...
Armaan look at her face where rain drops where shining and making her look more beautiful than ever...
Riddhima...
Tumne jawab nehi diya...
Kyu tumhe itna fark pad rahi hai...' Armaan asked moving her closed to him...
Kyunki main...' Riddhima started but words weren't ready to come out from her mouth easily...


  
PART 15...



Riddhima...
Tumne jawab nehi diya...
Kyu tumhe itna fark pad rahi hai...' Armaan asked moving her closed to him...
Kyunki main...' Riddhima started but words weren't ready to come out from her mouth easily...
Armaan leave her...
He knows Riddhima wouldn't tell wht was going inside her heart...
Kuch bhi nehi na Riddhima...
Mujhe pata hai...
Sorry if I hurt by holding u like that...' Saying this Armaan turn to leave...
Kyunki main tumse pyar karta hoon Armaan...'
Armaan was surprise to hear this...
He turns and look at Riddhima who was still looking at him...
Haan Armaan...
Main tumse pyar karta hoon...
Aaj se nehi... Balki tabse maine pehli baar tumhe dekha...
2saal ki baad maine apni aapko sambhalna seekha...
Dar lagta ta... Phir se koi meri saat aisa kuch karke chodna de ki main tut jaun...
Dar lagta ta rishte se mujhe...
Agli baar aisa kuch huva toh main zinda rehpaungi ya nehi yeh sochke...
Armaan... Main apni feelings koh ignore karne ki bohot koshish ki...
lekin mujhse nehi ho paya...
Tani koh tumhare paas dekhe mujhe jalan hoti hai...
Kyunki main nehi chahti meri siwai koi bhi tujhe touch kare...
Aise nazar se dekhe...
Kyunki tum sirf meri ho Armaan...
Haan Armaan... Main tumse bohot pyar karta hoon...' Riddhima said...
She just sits down on her knee hiding her face in her hand...
Armaan stood not knowing wht to say...
He didn't know wht to do... His ears were desperate to hear she loves him a lot... Also his heart broke knowing how much pain she was carrying in her heart... How much fear was in her heart...
Riddhima...' Armaan called her who was sitting on the ground hiding her face... She wipe the tears and started...
2 saal pehle...
Siddhant Modi se meri sagai huvi...Mujhe laga main use pyar karti hoon lekin, jabse tuhe dekha mujhe pata chala hai ki woh pyar nehi ta...
Woh hamesha chahta ta ki hum jaldi shaadi kare... Lekin mujhe shaadi se pehle designer bannata... Jo aaj main hoon... Mujhe pehle se hi designing ki bohot shauk hai...
Uska janam din ta... Maine use bataya mujhe urgent kaam aaya toh main uski saat nehi rehpayi...
Maine jaldi apni kaam khatam karke usku ghar chala gaya...
Jo maine waha dekha... Suna... Uski baad main itna tut gayi ek saal laga mujhe yeh sabse baahar aane ke liye...
Us din ki baad, maine kabhi kissi koh apne paas aane nehi diya...
Aise baat se mujhe nafrat hoti hai...
Anjy Di, Sapna aur Muski mujhe bohot samjhane ki koshish ki...Lekin maine ek baar bhi un logo ki baat nehi suni...
Anjy di ne pehle bhi kaha use Siddhant accha nehi lagta...
Lekin meri zidd ki wajahse sabko use apna na pada...
Mujhe pata hai maine galati kiya hai... Sabko hurt kya hai jo mujhse apne jaan se zyada pyar karte hai...
Jab Di aur Jeeju ki shaadi main pehli baar tumhe dekha, tabse meri andar yeh feelings aane laga...
Maine bohot koshish ki... Lekin tab tak meri dil tum legaya...
Lekin main confused ti... Kahin pehle ki tarah isbaar bhi mujhse galati huva toh...
Kya sach main main tumse pyar karta hoon ya bas yeh ek crush ti...'
By the time Armaan move close to her and sit next to her...
Riddhima didn't look at him for once... She tells him everything about her past... Without any hesitate...
She was comfortable sharing this with him, it seems heavy rock was push away from her heart after telling him about her fear...
Riddhima...' Armaan hold her hand and Riddhima look at him...
Next moment she stood up and started to leave...
Nehi Armaan...
Mujhe abhi bhi dar lagta hai...
Bohot dar lagta hai...' Riddhima said standing little away from him with her back to him...
Armaan stood up and move close to her...
Standing behind her, he turns her around holding her shoulder to face him...
Riddhima...
Main jaanta hoon tumhe mujhe ya kissi aur koh yakeen karna bohot mushkil hoga...
Lekin tum aise kabhi aage nehi badpaenge...'
Armaan said softy... He wants to help Riddhima move on... Not only he loves her, also he wouldn't be able to see her in this pain... Leaving her shoulder, he holds her hand and put them closed to his chest holding their...
Riddhima...
Please mujhe ek chance doh...
Main vada karta hoon tumse...
Main kabhi tumhe akela nehi chodunga... Hamesha tumse pyar karunga...
Dhuniyaki saari khushi dunga aur saare gham tumhari zindagi se nikaldenge...
Tum mujhse pyar karti hoon na...
Tumhe mujhpar barosa haina...'
Riddhima look at Armaan meeting her eyes with her... She nods her head and Armaan smile...
Bas...
Aajse yehi sabse bada sach hai hum dono ki life main...
Tum mujhse pyar karte ho aur Main tumhse...
Aur main hamesha tumhari paas rahunga...
Khushi main.. Ghum main...
Har waqt, har pal...
Kya tum mujhe ek chance denge...' Armaan asked...
Riddhima again nod her head...
Armaan was very happy... It seems he got everything happiness in his life...
He pull Riddhima into a tight hug and Riddhima also respond equally...
When Riddhima look at his eyes, she understood...
Armaan is the true one for her... She was the one god had sent for her...
His eyes show how much he loves her... Adore her and care her...
How much he wants her to be happy and take every sorrow out from her life...
Soon it started to Rain...
Just like the first time Armaan saw her two years before...
The only different was that time he didn't know anything about her but today; she is everything to him...
As the rains were coming down heavily and making the atmosphere chill both keeps hugging each other to get the warm... Armaan move his hands sensually in her back sending shiver down her spine...
Riddhima hands which was on his back holding him closed, it got tight feeling the shiver taking place in her body...
I love u Armaan...' Riddhima said as the atmosphere was getting romantic by the rain...
I love u too Riddhima... A lot...' Armaan said hiding his face near her neck and nuzzling near her ears...
Soon they were lost in each other...
Armaan didn't know when he started to place soft kisses on her neck and Riddhima was so lost she didn't dare to stop him...
Armaan move away from hug and sit on his knee forwarding his hand...
Ms.Riddhima Shashank Gupta...
Kya tum meri Valentines banongi...
Is saal main... Aur aane sab salo main sirf meri banke rahungi...'
Tears were shining in her eyes and she nods her head...
She puts her hand on his and Armaan kiss it softly...
Then he stood up and again pull her closed to him...
Armaan hand was on her waist while her hands around his neck...
Armaan hugs her not waiting to take in his arms... Again both were lost in their own world...
Armaan came to the world when he felt something vibrating on his jeans pocket...He move out from the hug still holding Riddhima in on hand when his other hand goes to his pocket and took out the phone...
It was Nikki who was calling...
Haan Niks... Kya huva...' Armaan ask looking at Riddhima who was blushing...
Bhai... Kaha ho...
Aur Ridzy kaha hai...' Nikki asked all panic...
Riddhima...' Riddhima look at him when he said her name and nod negatively didn't tell her she was with him...
Maine abhi use ghar choda... Kyu...' Armaan said...
Woh bohot heavily Rain ho raha haina... Issiliye poocha...
Aap party main aayenge ya ghar jaenge...' Nikki asked...
Main tumhe ghar main milunga Niks...' Saying this Armaan cut the call...
Riddhima was feeling cold and was rubbing her hands on her arms... Armaan was holding her closed by her waist...
Chale... Mujhe thand lag rahi hai...' Riddhima said when she saw Armaan ending the call...
Ek baat poochu...' Armaan said moving as they were not far from Riddhima house...
Hmmm...' Riddhima said not looking at him...
Tumne mujhe Nikki koh batane se kyu mana kya ki tum mere saat ho...' Armaan asked her pulling closed to him...
Riddhima look at him and soon lower her head while the red shade took on her cheeks...
Woh, unlogo koh pata hai ki main...' Riddhima stop...
Ki tum...' Armaan asked...
Main tumhe confess karne wali hoon...' Riddhima said...
Haan toh confess toh ki na... Phir...' Armaan asked...
Phir kya...
Aapko pata nehi woh log mujhe bohot tang karte hai...
Aur yeh jaanke bohot tang karenge hum dono aise baarish main bheeg ke...' Riddhima stop...
Oye hoyye...
Toh Ms.Riddhima Gupta koh Sharam bhi aati hai...' Armaan said teasing her...
Armaan...' Riddhima glare at him as if saying doesn't dare to tease her...
Soon they reach Riddhima house...
Bye...' Riddhima said and was too moved when Armaan pull her hand...
She bumped to him and Armaan put his hands around her waist holding her closed...
Armaan... Kya kar rahi ho...' Riddhima said getting scared suddenly...
Not becox they were so closed, just that someone might see them like this before she tell her Mamma and Papa about it...
Goodnight nehi bola...
Aur mera kiss...' Armaan said...
Red color took her cheeks which was pink due to the cold weather...
Armaan...' Riddhima said not looking at him...
Armaan smile and move his face closed to her...
She closed her eyes feeling him moving close to her... Her lips were shivering and Armaan look her face to see her eyes closed...
He smile and move his closed to her face and kiss her forehead and whisper goodnight near her ears...
Riddhima smile when she feels his lips touch her forehead...
Armaan move and Riddhima open her eyes... She also said goodnight and before leaving she kiss his cheek and run away...
Armaan was shocked with the sudden kiss she gave to him on his cheek...
Before he could recover from the shocked, Riddhima run away... Before going inside, she turn around and wave him...
Armaan dreamily wave her and whisper I love u' before leaving...

They smile becox Armaan never say those kinds of things, especially around Billy and Ananya...

GUPTA MANSION...


Riddhima changed and got herself a hot steam coffee...
She was feeling cold so she sits on the bed with comforter around her to hide her body from the cold...
She keep sipping her coffee and looking at the phone as the time pass...
Yeh Armaan bi na... Kya chala jaaega ek baar call karenge toh...' Riddhima said...
She was desperately waiting him to call...
Lekin Armaan ne toh nehi bola woh call karenge... Toh main kyu uski call ka waits kar rahi hoon...' Riddhima said...
Riddhima move out from the bed and stand near the window looking out to see the water drops coming from above sky to the ground...
She closed her eyes taking the fresh air which came into the room from the open window...
Small smile came to her face when she remember her confession and her moment with Armaan...
My best day of My Life... Thanks Armaan...' Riddhima said...
Maine kahatana...
Woh tumse bohot pyar karta hai...' Her heart said...
Haan... Aaj pata chala...
Aur main bhi use...
bas ek darta...' Riddhima said...
Lekin Armaan ne promise kya na...
Woh kabhi tumhe dukh nehi denge...' Her heart said...
Yeh Bhi pata hai Mujhe...
Issiliye main aage badne ki koshish kar rahi hoon... Armaan ki saat...' Riddhima said...
Woh kabhi tumhe akele nehi chodenge Riddhima...
Tumne dekha nehi Riddhima... Woh tumse bohot mohabbat karte hai...' Her heart says...
Like this Riddhima was drown into Armaan dream when she hears her mobile Ring...
She took it without seeing the name, Hello Armaan...'
Kya baat hai Ridzy...
Armaan ki call ka inthizaar kar rahi ho...' Anjali said from the other side...
Di... Woh mujhe laga...' Riddhima hesitate...
Awww... Kitna cute hai...
At last confess kardi na...' Anjali said making Riddhima goes all red...
Sharma rahi ho...' Anjali asked again teasing her little sister...
Nehi Di...
Aap itni der calls kyu kiya...' Riddhima said before Anjali tease her more...
Bas yeh dekhne ki meri choti si Princess ghar tik se pochgayi ya nehi...' Anjali said all serious...
Riddhima smile thinking how much Anjali still worry for her...
Di... Don't worry Armaan ne...' She stop biting her tongue for saying Armaan name again and closed her eyes...
Armaan... hmmm...
So Mr.Mallik ne meri behen ki dil tak nehi, ghar tak bhi pochgaya...' Anjali said teasing and laughing...
Diii...' Riddhima said in a warning voice...
Sorry Sorryy... No more teasing...
Bas yehi poochna ta ghar tik se pochgayi ya nehi...
Woh bohot zyada baarish ho raha haina... Aur Nikki ne bataya Armaan ki car bhi baahar park main ti...
Toh iska matlab huvana ki tum dono walk ke ghar gaye...
Abhi ke liye rakhti hoon main tumhari pyaari jeeju bhula raha hai...' Anjali said...
Okey Di...Goodnight...' Riddhima said leaving a relief breath...
Itna khush mat ho jaan...
Main kal waha aa rahi hoon... Mujhe full moment ki , ek ek minute ki full story chahiyeh aaj raat ki...' Anjali said making Riddhima lost in the moment...
When Riddhima didn't say anything, Anjali knows she was again lost in Armaan thought...
Meri pyaari behena...
Tum Armaan ki baare main sochte sochte sojana...
main kal milti hoon...' Anjali said a little bit loud so Riddhima came back from her dream land...
Ji Di...' Wishing goodnight both cut the call and Riddhima again look outside...
Kitna khush hai Di...
Aur mujhe pura yakeen hai Papa aur Mamma bhi itni khush hongi...
Woh dono Armaan koh bohot acche se jaanta hai...Aur Billy Uncle aur Ananya Aunty kohbhi...' Riddhima think smiling... Mujhe Papa aur mamma koh batana chahiyeh... Isse pehle kissi aur se pata chale... Mujhe khud batana chahiyeh...
Lekin kya Armaan koh bura nhi lagega...Kyunki is rishte main sirf main nehi... Armaan bhi jhuda huva hai...
hmm...Ek kaam karti hoon...
Kal Armaan koh call karke poochungi... Phir Mamma aur Papa koh...'
Again her mobile ring at this time Riddhima look at the caller name...
Cute shy smile came to her face seeing Armaan name flashing...
Taking the call, Riddhima put her mobile closed to her ear just to hear...


..................................................................
PART 16


Again her mobile ring, this time Riddhima look at the caller name...
Cute shy smile came to her face seeing Armaan name flashing...
Taking the call, Riddhima put her mobile closed to her ear just to hear him sneezing badly...
Armaan...Kya huva...' Riddhima asked getting panic not knowing wht happen to him suddenly...
Arey Riddhima... Kuch nehi bas... Bheeg ne ki wajahse yeh zukaam... hah chuuu...' Armaan said...
Oh...
Tum kuch garam coffee ya tea peelo... Tik hojaenge...
Aur Sone se pehle medi lena phir subah tak sab kuch bhag jaenge...' Riddhima said...
Tum toh nehi bhagengi na...' Armaan asked...
Riddhima was shocked to hear this...
She was only talking about the sneezing and Armaan was talking about her...
Kya huva Riddhima...
Jawab kyu nehi di...' Armaan asked sneezing...
Yeh kaisa sawal hai Armaan...
Main kyu bhag jaungi...Kahin tum...' Riddhima stop and smash on her mind thinking about like that...
Nehi Riddhima...
Bhagjaunga toh tumhe saat lekhe jaunga...Issi bahane company bhi miljaenge mujhe...' Armaan said...
Hmm...Itni late call kyu kiya...' Riddhima asked as her mind was thinking about Armaan saying running away that too with her only...
Bas socha sone se pehle tumhari meeti awaz sunlu... Phir bohot acche neend aayenge...' Armaan said making Riddhima goes red...
Ab sunliya na... Sojao...' Riddhima said...
Aur bhi kuch poochna ta...' Armaan said...
Kya..' Riddhima asked sitting on her bed and resting her back...
Poochna ta ki if it is okey if I tell Mom and Dad about our relation...
I know girls koh pata hai...
And Anjy koh pata hai toh Atul koh jarur pata hoga... Aur Atul koh pata chale toh woh Rahul koh jarur bataenge...' Armaan said...
Riddhima was really touched by this...
She also wants to ask him about this and only he was asking her...
When Riddhima didn't answer him, Armaan call her name little loudly...
Hah...' Riddhima said...
Kya huva...
Tum abhi ready nehi hai toh koi baat nehi Riddhima...
I can wait and hum baaki sabko samjhaenge...' Armaan said...
Nehi Armaan... Iski koi jarurat nehi hai...
Main bhi yehi soch rahi ti ki main kal Papa aur Mamma koh bataun hum dono ki baare main...' Riddhima said...
hmmm... Maine bhi aise hi socha Riddhima...
It will be better if they know from us other then someone else...
Aur phir woh log kahenge, wohi karengi hum...' Armaan said...
Lekin Armaan...
Wht if they asked to get married...
Itni jaldi... Ab toh sirf aaj hum dono nayi zindagi shuru kya hai ek dusre ki saat...
I mean tohda aur waqt chahiyeh mujhe...Hum dono ki rishte aage bada ne ke liye...
Shaadi...' Riddhima said...
Don't worry Riddhima...
Sagai tak baat tik hai if u doesn't mind...
Shaadi hum baad main karenge jab tum ready ho...' Armaan said...
Thanks Armaan...' Riddhima said... She was very happy how easily Armaan understood wht she was trying to say...
Thanks ki kya baat hai Riddhima...
Ab hum dono saat hai...
Aur main jo bhi karunga, tumse poochke tumhari khushi ke liye karunga Riddhima...
Maine vada kya na tumhe, aur main poori koshish karunga woh imadaarise nibaneki...' Armaan said...
Like this they keep talking to each other, Armaan keep trying every possible way to make her feel comfortable with him...
Around 2am, Riddhima was feeling tired and sleepy... So both wishing goodnight cut the call and drown off to their dream to meet each other in their beautiful dream land...


SUNDAY...

Riddhima was walking around the room before going to help Padma with breakfast...
She didn't know how to tell her about her and Armaan...
Kya Riddhima...
Ek choti si batane se itni gabra rahi hai tum...
Pehle toh itna nervous nehi huvi... Ab kyu...
Please Bhagwaan Ji... Meri help karo...' Riddhima was talking all alone in the room when Padma call her... Riddhimaaa...'
Aayi Mamma...' Saying Riddhima went down to see Shashank sitting in the hall with his morning tea and newspaper...
Wishing him and hugging him, Riddhima went to see Padma chopping vegetables...
Morning Mamma...' Riddhima said coming and hugging from her behind...
GoodMorning beti...
Kya baat hai... Aaj bohot khush lag rahi hai...
Kal raat party kaisa raha... Enjoy ki...' Padma said moving to stove and she didn't see color changing in Riddhima face to pinkish red when Padma mention about the previous night...
Haan Mamma... Party bohot accha raha...
Sabne bohot enjoy kiya aur sabko bohot accha laga arrangement...' Riddhima said sitting on the counter and taking a carrot from near by bowl were Padma kept it...
Riddhima was lost in her thought, Padma keep talking to her...
When Padma didn't get any respond from her daughter, she look at Riddhima to see she was lost while carrot was on her mouth...
Padma keeps looking at her face, the colors which was coming and going in her face... She was turning red and red while thinking about whtever she was thinking...
On the other hand Riddhima was lost in Armaan and their little moment they spend the previous night...
How she felt jealous when she saw Armaan near with Tani...
When she left and Armaan follow him...
Armaan question her and when she didn't answer he was leaving...
Last but not the least, Riddhima confession... Actually it was a out brush as well...
Angry and jealousy mixed when she saw Armaan so closed with another girl becox he is only hers...
When she remember saying this to Armaan that Armaan is only hers, red color burn in her cheeks turning it scarlet...
Ehem ehem...' Riddhima came back from her dream land when she heard her mamma giving a fake cough...
She looks at Padma and saw she looking at her smiling...
Kya huva Mamma...' Riddhima said eating the carrot which she put her mouth...
Yehi toh main jaanna chahti hoon...
Meri beti koh huva kiya hai...
Kya soch ke itna muskura rahi hai aur kiski baare main sochke laal laal ho raha hai...' Padma said moving closed to her...
Koi baat nehi mamma...
Main toh bas aise hi kal raat ki party ke baare main soch rahi ti...' Riddhima said not looking at Padma...
Accha...
Kal raat party main kissi ne propose ki ti kya...' Padma ask...
Riddhima was little taken back when Padma asked this...
Not that Armaan propose last night but it's true she confess her feelings to him...
Nehi mamma... Aisi koi baat nehi hai bas yehi sochke khush hoon ki Atul jeeju Di se kitna pyar karte hai...
Woh dono toh ek dusre ke saat kitna perfect hai... Made for each other...' Riddhima said...
Pakka yehi baat haina Princess...' Padma asked moving her hand on her hair...
Haan Mamma...
Aap aise kyu pooch rahi ho...' Riddhima asked...
Kyunki mujhe lagta hai ki tumhe kuch kehna hai lekin tum dar rahi ho...
Dekho baccha...
Tumhe jo kehna hai kul ke kaho...
Aapko pata haina... Hum sabki khushi aapki khushi main hai...' Padma said...
Lekin mamma aisi koi baat nehi hai...' Riddhima said looking on the floor...
Aise baat nehi hai toh tum nazre kyu chura rahi ho Princess...
Aur tumhe pata haina tum bohot buri ho jab jhut bolte tab... Toh koshish kyu karte ho...
Abhi batana nehi chahte toh koi baat nehi...
Jab bhi tumhe lagta hai tum tayyar ho, tab batana... Main hamesha yehi rahungi Riddhima...' Padma said she moves to make the rest of the breakfast...
Riddhima thinks for a while and next minute her mobile vibrate and she saw Armaan msg... She open and read...
GoodMorning Jaan...
Did u tell ur parents...
Im going to tell...'
Riddhima smile to see this and reply...
GoodMorning...
Not yet... Im thinking how to tell Mamma...
Im with mamma in kitchen but no words came out from my mouth...
Good Luck!!!'
Riddhima sent and again think how she will start the conversation with Padma...
Again her mobile beeped and she open the msg from Armaan...
Everything will be fine Jaan...
Just close ur eyes... Think about me and tell without any hesitate...
Thanks and Best of luck to u too...
I will call after I talk to them... Love u...'
Bis smile came to her face and Riddhima send reply to him saying thanks and Love u too...'
then she look at Padma who was busy making breakfast with her back towards her...
She jump from the counter and move closed to Padma...
Mamma...' Riddhima call her before starting...
Kya huva Princess...' Padma asked not looking at her... She knows Riddhima had to tell her something and something was making her stop doing it...
Riddhima closed her eyes and leave breathe before telling her the truth...
Mamma woh main...' Riddhima didn't know how to start...
Padma turn around and look at Riddhima who was playing with her hand not looking at her...
Koan hai woh...' Padma asked and Riddhima look at her...
She was surprised to hear this... She hasn't said anything yet and she knows wht she was trying to say... Why wouldn't she know, after all she is her mother... Mother will know everything unspoken words by her daughter...
Armaan...' I said lowering my head and closing tightly not knowing wht will Mamma reaction will be...
Sach...' She sounds happy... Before I could say yes, Mamma hugs me tightly squeezing me in her arms...
I am so happy for u Princess...
This time u sure takes a good decision... U knows...
Tumhari Papa koh bhi Armaan bohot pasand hai... Aur hum dono ne socha ki yeh baat tumse kare...
Lekin...' Padma stop...
Mamma...
Main jaanti hoon aap sablog meri wajahse shaadi ki baat mujhse nehi karte hai...
Lekin Mamma... Jo kuch bhi meri zid ki wajahse huva, uski baad mujhe dar lagta hai...
Maine dekha hai ki meri wajahse aaplog koh kitna dukh huva...
Mamma...
Kya isbaar meri faisla sahi hai...
Please Mamma... Meri khushi ke liye aap log Armaan aur meri rishte koh haan mat kehna...
Aapko aur Papa koh Armaan sahi lagta hai aur woh mere liye sahi ladka hai toh haan kehna...' Riddhima said...
Padma was really happy to know Riddhima wants to move in her life...
She move closed to her and cupped her face in her palm... Kissing her forehead softly still holding her face in her palm Padma said...
Mujhe aur tere Papa koh Armaan bohot pasand hai...
Yeh hum tumhare khushi ke liye aur saat saat tumhari balaike liye keh rahi hoon Princess...
Armaan bohot hi accha ladka hai...
Apne ma baap se bohot pyar karta hai... Behen koh bohot pyar karta hai...
Responsible hai... Accha businessman hai...
Uske woh saare gun hai jo humhe humhari dhamand main hona chahiyeh...
Aur yeh sunkar toh main bohot khush hoon ki tum dono ek dusre koh pasand karte hai...
Princess...
Hum tum dono koh jaldi shaadi karne ke liye force nehi karungi...
Lekin sagai toh kar sakte haina...
Shaadi toh baad main kar sakte hai... Kya kehti ho tum...' Padma asked...
Riddhima was very happy to know this...
She hugs her tightly and Padma care her back... I love u mamma... U r the best...'
Love u too beti...
Toh main haan samjhu... Tumhari Papa koh bhi batana haina...' Padma said coming out from hug...
Riddhima lower her head and nod while red color took place in her cheeks...
She was feeling so much shy and happy, kissing her mamma cheek she run out from the kitchen...
She goes and saw her papa coming out from his room... She goes and hugs him and Shashank was shocked with her change of behavior...
I love u papa...
Love u love u love u a lot...' She said coming out from the hug and turning around with her father...
Rukho Rukho rukho Princess...
Chakkar aakhe ghir jaenge hum dono...' When she started stop turning with him... Kya baat hai princess... Bohot khush lag rahe ho...' Shashank asked...
Mamma aapko bataenge... Mujhe abhi important call karna hai Papa...' Saying this Riddhima run upstair on the stairs...
Beti lekin breakfast...' Shashank call her...
Baad main Papa...' Saying this Riddhima close her room door behind her...
Smiling to see old Riddhima was back; Shashank goes and sit near the dinning area...
Padma... Breakfast milengi ya nehi aaj...' Shashank call...
Milengi na Shashank... Aur woh bhi bohot acchi khabar ki saat...' Padma said coming with breakfast and smiling to her dearest husband...

Aur yeh baat sunke aap bhi bohot khush hoga...
Waise aapka laadli hai kaha...' Padma asked serving him...

Padma laugh hearing this... Kya huva hai Padma... Am I missing something...' Shashank asked...
Ab yeh toh roz ki sil sila hoga...' Padma said sitting next to him...
Kyu...' Shashank ask starting with his breakfast...
Kyunki humhari bacchi koh pyar hogaya hai Shashank...'
Kya... Sach main...' Shashank said surprise...


IN MALLIK MANSION...


Ananya was serving to Billy and Nikkita breakfast...
Bhai kaha hai... Abhi tak uta nehi hai...' Nikkita asked...
Pata nehi...
maine kaka koh bola ta use bhulakar lao... Aur kaka ne kaha woh utgaya hai...' Ananya said...
Aata hi hoga...
Ananya tum bhi beito aur breakfast karo...' Billy said...
After few minutes Armaan came and sit in his seat wishing everyone good morning...
Kya baat hai Armaan...
Aaj Princess ki baad tum aaye ho...' Billy asked...
Woh Dad main raat koh derse soya issiliye jaldi neend nehi khula...' Armaan said taking a bite from his sandwich...
Kyu... U work late...
Kabhi toh rest liya karo Armaan... Aise itna bhi kya kaam karna...' Ananya scold him... Not angry just to make him understand even rest is necessary for him...
Armaan wait till her mother finished with her daily routine of scolding him about over working...
Even Billy and Nikkita also didn't say anything and quietly keep eating their breakfast...
Dekho toh is ladke koh Billy...
Main isse hi baat kye jaa rahi hoon aur yeh mere baat sunnehi raha hai...' Ananya said...
Mom...
Main aapki baat sun bhi raha hoon aur samajh bhi raha hoon...
Aur agar aapki kaam koh lekar baat khatam hogayi toh kya main aap log se kuch baat share kar sakta hoon...' Armaan ask looking at them...
Billy, Ananya and Nikkita look at him when he said this...
they wait till his continuo with his talk...
Dad... Mom...
Woh main...' He didn't know wht to say... The way they were looking to him was making him all nervous...
Kya huva Armaan... Kya baat hai...'
before he could say anything more his mobile beeped... He checks to see Riddhima msg...
Kiska msg hai Bhai... Woh bhi subah subah...' Nikkita said to tease him...
Armaan check her msg not answering Nikkita's question...
It says, Armaan... guess wht... mamma and Papa said yes to our relation... Im sooo happy... I love u...'
Smile came to his face and his stand up all of sudden saying Yesss...' So loudly that Billy and Ananya keep looking at him with shocked and Nikkita started to giggle seeing their parents face...
Kiska msg hai Armaan...
Aur tum itna khush kyu ho... Uchal kyu rahe ho...
Kya baat hai... Humhe bhi batao...' Ananya said...
Main batati hoon Mom...

No Bhai... Not today...

Dad... Mom...
Aap dono ki workaholic bte koh pyar hogaya...' Nikkita said and next moment Armaan run after her for relieving the truth before he tells them...
Nikki ki bacchi... Main tujhe nehi chodungi...' Armaan said...
Pehle pakadke dikhao...
Aur mom... Kal raat Riddhima ne haan bhi kardi...
Aur Shashank uncle aur Padma aunty koh bhi yeh rishta qubool hai...' Nikkita shouts before she runs to her room...
Armaan stop hearing the last sentence of her...
How did she know that Shashank uncle and Padma aunty approve their relation... He didn't tell her that Riddhima will be talking to her parent...
Armaan...' Armaan turn around to see Billy and Ananya standing infront of him with their arms fold on their chest...
Woh... Mom... Dad...
Actually main kal raat batane wala ta lekin Riddhima se pooche bagair nehi bata sakta ta...
Issiliye...'
He was cut by Ananya... Issiliye tum Riddhima koh ghar chodne baarish main bheeg ke gaya ta...'
Aur yeh baat Princess koh bhi pata ta bas hum dono koh nehi...' Billy said...
Tumhe kya lagta hai Armaan...
Tum yeh bolenge ki tumhe Riddhima pasand hai toh hum dono bhi tum dono ki rishte koh apna lenge...' Ananya said moving closed to him...
Armaan bow his head... He never thought his parent might says no to him...
He thought they will be happy, he is thinking someone else other then his work...
Lekin Mom...' Armaan started but Ananya cut him...
Tumne aisa socha bhi kaise Armaan...'
Armaan didn't know wht to say... If his parent says no, wht will happen to Riddhima...
She will broke down...
We never expect this from Armaan...
But ab lagta hai Shashank aur Padma se baat karna padega...' Billy said...
Haan aur jaldi yeh dono ki sagai karva de... Kya pata kab humhare workaholic bte ki dhimag change hoga...Aur Riddhima se accha bahu mujhe nehi milengi...' Ananya said...
Armaan was shocked to hear this... He looks at his dad and mom not believing his ears... They were smiling and little tears were shining in their eyes...
Dekho Ananya...
Is paagal koh yeh yakeen nehi huva hum dono iske saat mazak kar rahata...' Billy said moving closed to him and patting his cheek...

Thanks Mom... Thanks Dad... I love u both...' Armaan said next moment, he hugs them both...
Aur mujhe pyar nehi karte tum bhai...
Very bad... U should thank to me, Anjy, Sapna and Muski...
Aaj Ridzy ne haan kaha hai toh sirf hum log ki wajahse...' Nikkita said coming and when she saw them sharing a hug...
Woh kaise...' Billy asked...
Common Dad...
Woh sab chodo... I know aaplog meri wajahse bohot proud hai... Kyuna ho...
After all maine meri bhai koh uska pyar dilwaya hai...
Main aur baaki sab Ridzy se baat nehi karte toh woh hai ki apni feelings koh samajhne ke liye tayyar hi nehi ti...
Thank god ab jaake samajh main aaya use ki woh sirf mere bhai se pyar karta hai...'Nikkita said...
Thanks a lot Princess...' Armaan said...
Armaan was standing with Ananya and Billy on his either side... His hands where around their shoulder...
Thanks...

Thanks se kaam nehi chalega bhai...
Aapko mujhe treat dena padega... Mujhe akele nehi... Anjy, Sapna aur Muski ke liye bhi...
Aur aap chahte toh aap Ridzy koh bhi leja sakte ho humhari saat...
Don't worry, hum aap dono koh itna tang nehi karungi... Balki aaplog koh puraka pura time dhungi akele bitane ke liye... Whts say...' Nikki said...
Not a bad idea...
But aaj nehi... Aaj mujhe important kaam ke liye bahar jaana hai...' Armaan said...
Koansa kaam...' Billy asked...
Woh Dad... Aaj mujhe Riddhima koh...' Armaan said and Nikkita finished his sentence for him... Bahar lejana hai... Samjha karo Dad... Aaj doh lover's ki pehla din hai... Ek saat toh bitana chahiyeh na...'
Tik hai lejana...
Lekin kya tum dono shaadi jaldi karengi ya baad main...' Ananya asked...
Mom... Shaadi... Itni jaldi...Nehi mom...
We both need sometimes to spend with each other...
Aur Riddhima bhi abhi shaadi ke liye tayyar nehi hai...' Armaan said...
Toh baat yaha tak pocha... Tum dono shaadi nehi sagai karenge pehle aur kuch din saat main rehkar ek dusre koh acche se jaanongi phir jab tum dono koh lagta hai shaadi karna chahiyeh tab karenge... Haina...' Billy said...
Armaan nod and other smile to see how Armaan and Riddhima had plan their relation for the coming days...
Tik hai...
Main Padma se baat karti hoon...
Aur PanditJi se bhi...' Ananya said...
Yippieee...
Mujhe jaldi bhabhi milne wala haiii...' Nikkita said running around the house...
Dad... U r sure Princess aap aur mamma ki beti hai...' Armaan asked looking at Nikkita who was roaming and shouting happily around the house...
She stop when he heard Armaan asking this from Billy...
Haan kyu... Koi shak hai tumhe...' Billy said sitting on the couch...
Haina dad...
Dekho... Yeh ladki paagal hogayi hai...
Jaldi se mental hospital bhe jo nehi toh hum logo koh bhi paagal kardengi...' Armaan said laughing...
Bhai... Aapne mujhe paagal kaha...

How dare u bhai...' Nikkita said putting her hands on her hips and making angry face...
Yes my dearest loving sister...
Hum is ghar main aapko ho princess bhulate haina...
Toh of course aapko hi paagal kaha maine...' Armaan said folding his hands on his chest...
Ab toh aap gaya bhai...
Main aapko chodungi nehi... Aapne mujhe uff Nikkita Mallik koh paagal bola...' Nikkita run after Armaan and Armaan move fastly towards the stairs...
Ananya was coming smiling after talking to Padma and as she saw Nikkita running after Armaan, she stop on the spot...
Armaan came and stand behind her and look at his sister who was coming angriliy towards him...
Yeh kya ho raha hai...
Princess, tum Armaan ki peeche kyu bhag rahi ho...' Ananya asked...
Mom... Bhai ne mujhe paagal kaha...' Nikkita said...
Mom... Paagal koh paagal nehi kahungi toh kya kahungi...
Jo bhi ho niks... But I really love u...' Saying this Asrmaan run upstairs and lock himself in room before Nikkita got caught of him...



IN GUPTA MANSION...


Riddhima was working around the room waiting for Armaan to call him...
Its been more then 30mins and still he haven't call her...She was checking her mobile every 2minutes...
Suddenly it started to ring and Riddhima took the phone only to hear Anjali voice from the other end...
GoodMorning di...
Kya huva kuch kaam hai...' Riddhima said not so interest...
Kya baat hai Ridzy...
Ab main kaam ke liye hi sirf tumhe yaad kar sakte hai kya...' Anjali asked...
Nehi di... Mera woh matlab nehi ta...
Actually kal raat aapse baat huvi na... Issiliye phir aaj aap subah call ki tohmaine socha koi kaam...' Riddhima said...
Anjali laugh and Riddhima heard Muskaan and Sapna sounds from background from Anjali side...
Sapna aur Muski bhi hai aapke saat...' Riddhima ask all excitedly...
Haan... Maine issiliye phone kya tumhe invite karne ke liye...
Kyuna hum chotasa get together rakhe...
Isbaar boy's koh bhi bhulaenge...' Anjali said...
Ridzy... na mat kehna...
Aur tum Armaan koh bhi bolde woh waha aajae... Raat koh waapas chali jaenge...' Muskaan said...
Aur Nikki koh bhi boldena please... Bohot maza aayega...' Sapna said...
Aur humhe kal raat ki puri khabar bhi chahiyeh, in details... Kyu girls...' Muskaan said...
Hearing Muskaan teasing voice, red color took place in her cheeks turning it pinker...
Riddhima felt another call was coming so she look at his mobile to see who was calling only to see Armaan name...
Di... Important call aa rahi hai... Main aapse baad main baat karti hoon... Aur main Nikki koh boldungi... Bye...' Saying this without waiting for Anjali answer Riddhima cut her call and received Armaan call...
Hello...' Riddhima said and no one talk from the other end...
But Riddhima could hear the soft breathing of Armaan...'Kya huva Armaan... Kuch bolenge nehi...' Riddhima ask softly and still no answer...
Armaan...
Kuch bolo... Kya huva...
Mom dad se baat ki...' Riddhima asked...
Haan...' Armaan said and next moment Riddhima's heartbeat was racing fast...
Kya kaha...' Riddhima asked before holding her breath and closing her eyes...
Woh Riddhima...' Armaan said creating the suspense and it was killing Riddhima...
Armaan... Bolo... Kya kaha...
They didn't approve our relation... Did they?' Riddhima asked all nervously and scared...
It took sometimes before Armaan said anything...
Riddhima...
Mom aur Dad...
Riddhima kyat um abhi mujhe mil sakte ho... Main tumhari ghar ki baahar hoon...' Armaan said...
Wht...' Riddhima was shocked to hear this...
Wht the hell Armaan was going outside her house...
Riddhima move to her window and saw Armaan standing near his bike...
Riddhima was wearing a black stop with blue fade jeans as that is what she wears when she is in home...
She didn't bother to change she run down the stairs and out from the house...
Before that she shouted... Mammma... .Main baahar jaa rahi hoon...'
Before Padma could ask where... She was already out of the house...
Padma look outside and saw Armaan waiting... Thinking how childish Riddhima could be, she went back to her work...
Riddhima was out of breath when she reaches to Armaan...
She stops and before asking anything she control her breath...
Armaan sit on his bike and asked her to sit...
Armaan...'
Riddhima... Beitjao...' Armaan said... Not looking at her...
Riddhima didn't have any other choice but to sit...
Armaan zoom off and Riddhima hold him by his waist as her front hit his back...
Armaan stop near the beach... By the time it started to rain and not giving any interest to his surrounding Armaan move inside leaving Riddhima...
Riddhima was surprise with his behavior and move after him...
Armaan... Huva kya hai...
Kuch toh batao...
Aur mujhe yaha kyu lekar aayi ho...' Riddhima said coming behind from him...
Armaan stop and face to her... Riddhima who was coming bumped to him when he suddenly stop and turn to her...
His hands go around her waist why her hands were on his chest...
Itna bekaraar hai jaanne ke liye mom aur dad ne kiya kaha...' Armaan asked looking straight to her eyes...
Woh main...' Riddhima didn't know wht to say...
She was going weak from her knee becox of the closeness and feeling Armaan care her waist slowly...
Armaan move his one hand and put it to his pocket...
Next second he took a bangle...
Then he took Riddhima hand and put it on...
Riddhima...
Yeh haandhani Kada hai...
Mamma ne tumhare liye diya...' Armaan said and next moment Riddhima hugs him...
She was in heaven knowing even Armaan parent were happy with their relation...
Itna drama karne ki kya jarurat ti... Seedhe seedhe nehi bata sakti...' Riddhima said smaching him on his back softly...
Seedhe seedhe, phone pe bata deti toh tumhari expression kaise dekunga main...
Jab toh dil se khush hoti hoon na, it shows in ur eyes... Which I adore the most about u...' Armaan said caring her hair and kissing softly...
Both keep hugging like there is no tomorrow and their life was perfect without anymore sorrow...
Suddenly it started to rain and Riddhima move enjoying the rain drops coming down and kissing her face...
Armaan was lost in her... He hadn't notice before she was wearing black top which was hugging her body showing cave and blue faded jeans...
She was looking like an Angel who was send from heaven...
Riddhima who didn't notice Armaan was checking her out keep enjoying the rain...
When it comes to rain, Riddhima forget about her surrounding and behave like a kid...
She spread her hands and keep turning around while rains drops fall in to her hand and face...
Making her hair and body wet...
Riddhima stop when she heard someone singing...
She turn around only to see Armaan staring at her while he lips move...
Riddhima was surprise to hear him singing as she never thought someone like Armaan could for whom his works only matter...

Tu hi meri hai saari zameen
Chaahe kahin se chaloon

Tujhpe hi aake rukoon
(Armaan move closed to her while looking her not taking off him eye anywhere else...)

Tere siwa main jaoon kahaan
Koi bhi raah chunoon
Tujhpe hi aake rukoon
(He stop infront of Riddhima holding her hands in his... And kiss it like gettleman...)
Tum mile toh lamhe tham gaye
Tum mile toh saare gam gaye
Tum mile toh muskurana aa gaya
(Riddhima got shy and hugs him tightly hiding her red face on his chest... Armaan respond her hiding his face on her hair which was wet by the rain...)

Tum mile toh jaadu cha gaya
Tum mile toh jeena aa gaya
Tum mile toh maine paaya hai khuda
(They were lost in each other... Not bothering about the surrounding they keep hugging each other not ready to leave...
But at last Armaan move and hold her hand moving to go from there...)
Tujh mein kinaara dikhe
Dil ko sahara dikhe
Aa meri dhadkan thaam le
(Armaan and Riddhima was in Armaan bike...
Armaan driving and Riddhima hands around him holding him closed... Armaan put her one hand near his heart... Looking from the front mirror to see her face was red...)

Teri taraf hi mude
Yeh saans tujhse jude
Har pal yeh tera naam le
(Armaan turn his face while driving to the side Riddhima rest her chin on Armaan shoulder... Riddhima move her face when Armaan turn and next second she felt Armaan hot breath kissing her cheeks which was red due to cold and shyness...)
Tum mile toh ab kya hai kami
Tum mile toh duniya mil gayi
Tum mile toh mil gaya aasra
(Armaan stop near a place where they sells flower and leaving Riddhima there he went and came back with red roses...)

Tum mile toh jaadu cha gaya
Tum mile toh jeena aa gaya
Tum mile toh maine paaya hai khuda
(Riddhima was happy the way he was making everything special for her...
She just hugs him from behind while he drives off with her...)
Din mere tujhse chalein
Raatein bhi tujhse dhalein
Hai waqt tere haath mein
(Armaan stop near a small park where they didn't see anyone around...
He got off and took Riddhima inside with him and pull her closed to him holding her waist...)
Tu hi shehar hai mera
Tujhme hi ghar hai mera
Rehta hai tere saath mein
(Riddhima breath got stuck when she feels how closed both were...
She lower her head while red color took place in her cheeks...
She feels his gaze on her face and she bit her lower lip to control her feelings which was waking inside her body...
Armaan was moving with her to the beat...)
Tum mile toh mil gaya humsafar
Tum mile toh khud ki hai khabar
Tum mile toh rishta sa ban gaya
(Armaan who was lost in Riddhima and her beauty, when he felt how closed they were he was only staring at her without blinking his eyes... He put his finger in her chin and makes her look him only to see her eyes closed...)

Tum mile toh jaadu cha gaya
Tum mile toh jeena aa gaya
Tum mile toh maine paaya hai khuda
(Armaan started to move his lips closed to hers still holding her chin while his other hand was around her waist pulling her closed...
Riddhima's both hands were on his well built body and his shirt was in her hand as their desire was getting on fire every passing minute in this chill weather...)
Riddhima didn't open her eyes but she could feel Armaan hot breath hitting on her face...
her heartbeat rose as she felt Armaan breath near her lips... Shiver run down in her spine while her hand hold tight in front of his shirt...
Rain was coming down heavily and soaking both of them with it... They didn't bother with the rain but was lost in each other...
Armaan was unable to control himself as his desire was waking inside him...
He moves his face closed to him and was about to place his lips on her when suddenly his phone started to vibrate on his pocket broking their charm...
Riddhima move away and went out from the park...
Cursing to the caller, Armaan answer the call and said they will be their in 10mins...


RIDDHIMA POV...

My heartbeat was out of control and I have been breathing heavily...
It seems I was about to cross all limits before marriage...
I was surprise for myself not moving away from him and giving everything to him happy...
Yeh mujhe kya ho raha hai...
Mujhe pata hai main Armaan se pyar karta hoon lekin itna pyar karta hoon ki main use sab kuch dene ke liye tayyar hogayi...
Sid ki saat maine aise kabhi feel nehi kiya...
Sid koh apni itni kharib aane nehi diya maine...
Sagai ki baad bhi Sid ne koh ek baar bhi itni kharib...
I will be mad if I keep loosing myself when Im around him...
Shaadi se pehle yeh sab...
Nehi nehi... Yeh tik nehi hai...'
My mind was saying all this but my heart wasn't agreeing... Whtever happen just a few minutes ago, true we haven't kiss, still its feel so right...
Even I wanted him to closed that distance... But thanks to the caller, who interrupt our special moment...
I felt my cheeks burn when I remember the closeness between me and Armaan...
I couldn't help but a smile form in my face...

END OF RIDDHIMA'S POV...


ARMAAN POV...

I end the call and look around to see Riddhima no where... I saw her going out and I make my way thinking wht was wrong with me...
I was just about to kiss her...
Wht will she thinks about me...
I promise her I wouldn't cross any limited and do anything without her permission and I lost myself to her...
Dude...
U r gone... Wht if Riddhima got mad at u...'His mind said...
Nehi nehi... Aisa nehi hoga...
I mean if she really didn't like all this, she herself should stop me... But she didn't...
Wht is mean by this...
Did Riddhima also was atleast this closeness between us...
Or she was just giving herself becox I love her...
No... Yeh nehi ho sakta...
I wouldn't force her and I should control myself and keep distance from her...
Kya karu...
She was looking damn hot...
Shut up Armaan...
If u keep thinking like that, there is a fear u could cross every limit next time...
So just don't ever think about her like that...' his mind said...
Lekin kya karu...
Whenever I saw her, I just got lost in her beauty...
really not fair... Why should she have to look so beautiful every day...
I came out from the park and saw Riddhima standing near the bike...
I saw her face turning red and she was thinking about something and blushing badly...
Shy smile was on her lips while her eyes were shining happily...
I move closed to her and stand there looking at her but as she was so busy thinking whtever she was thinking (I am sure she was thinking about us and the moment we share few minutes ago...) she didn't realize when I came there...
Smile form came to my face seeing how beautiful she was looking with shy smile and while she was blushing...

END OF ARMAAN'S POV...

Chale...
Tumhari Anjali Di ka call aaya... Waha pe bhulaya hai...' Armaan said seeing Riddima didn't realize he was there...
Riddhima came back from lala land and nod her head... She move little away so Armaan could sit first and when he was settle Riddhima sit behind him...
They zoomed off knowing how others will tease knowing both parents approve their relation...

PART 17...


Armaan stop infront of ATUL MANSION...
Riddhima jump down as she wanted to leave as fast as she could but only Armaan hold her hand and pull her back...
Kya kar rahi ho Armaan...
Koi dekhlega...' Riddhima said as she look here and there if anyone was around to see them so closed...
Toh kya huva Riddhima...
Ab sabko pata hi hoga ki hum dono...
Aur humhari parents bhi khush haina...' Armaan said holding her closed to him...
Phir bhi Armaan...
Please chodo mujhe...
Di aur baaki sab waise bhi bohot tease karenge...
Aur aise dekhliya toh...' Riddhima said looking at him...

Next second both were lost in each other eye and they share a beautiful eyelock...
Armaan move his face closed to her and saw she closed her eyes...
Smiling to this, Armaan move his lips to her forehead and peck there before leaving her hand...
Riddhima open her eyes when she felt Armaan left her hand and she smile feeling his lips on her forehead...
Her cheek color got darker...
Riddhima run inside and Armaan smile to see how a small touch make her shiver...
Oye hoyye...' It except from his mouth and he run his hand on his hair...


INSIDE ATUL MANSION...


Atul and Rahul were busy watching a football match while Anjali, Muskaan, Sapna and Nikki who joins them a while ago was talking about AR away from the boy's...
'I am so happy... At last Ridzy is moving on... Wish Armaan keeps her happy forever...' Anjali said...
'Bhai will surely keep her happy Anjy bhabs...

'OMG... Sach main... Stupid me... Koi baat nehi... Armaan, Ridzy koh baahar lejana hai toh shaam koh leja sakte hai.. Abhi toh bas 11am bhaje hai... Pura din baaki hai... Aur yaha aayenge toh bohot privacy milengi if we don't dare to disturb them...' Anjali said winking at them...

As they were talking like this, Muskaan saw Riddhima coming all wet... Her cheeks were red like tomato's and she was shivering becox of cold...
'Here comes Juliet...' Muskaan said winking to others and they move to welcome Riddhima...
'Kya baat hai Ridzy... badi sharma rahi hai... Kahin kuch...' Anjali said to tease her and only her cheeks color got dark hearing this...
'Di... Let me change... I am all wet...' Riddhima said not looking around...
'Hayye... Kya baat hai... Confess ki baad pehla din, dono ek dusre ki haath main haath daal ke... Baarish main Romance...Wow... Yeh toh movie ki romantic scene huva...' Muskaan said...
'Aur baarish main... Dance...' Sapna said...
'Aur bike main super fast holding each other... Sound so cool and romantic na...' Nikki also join them...

All this time our helpless Riddhima just keep blushing and not looking at them trying not to meet with their eyes...
'Ok Girls... First let her change nehi toh she might get a cold...' Anjali said and then turning to Riddhima... 'Princess... Tum change karlo... I will make coffee for u... Aur Armaan kaha hai...'
'Tumne yaad kiya, hum chala aaya Anjy...' Armaan said coming turning his bike key on his finger...
Girl's turn around to see Armaan also coming all wet... They know it was raining heavily outside...
'Sorry Anjy... Got little late...' Armaan said standing in front of Riddhima...
'Di main change karke aati hoon...' Saying this Riddhima run away from there...
Other smile to see changing color of her cheeks when she saw Armaan coming towards them...
'So Mr. Mallik... At last tumhe meri choti si princess haan kar hi di... Congra would be bro in law...' Anjali said...
She move closed to him but stop seeing he was all wet...
'I know I am all wet... Pehle mujhe change karne doh... Then u girl's can congratulate us... Waise woh good for nothing buddies kaha hai mera...' Armaan said moving to go to guest room as Riddhima went to her room...

Actually Anjy decorate one room specially for Riddhima when she loves to stay with her di and jeeju, she can come and stand there...
'Wht else they could do... Boring sa match dekh raha hai...' Muskaan said...
'Bhai... Tum jhaake change karlo... Nehi toh cold hojaenge...' Nikki said...
'Main sabke liye coffee bana ti hoon... waise bhi its a cold day outside so we had to spend whole day inside...' Anjali said...
'Oh no...' Muskaan and Sapna said together...
Nikki and Anjali were shocked of this sudden brush...
'If we r to be inside, we will get hell bore yaar... yeh boy's toh match dekh raha hai...' Sapna said...
'Koi baat nehi Sapna... We can move to our room... After all we had to know every detail from Ridzy...' Anjali said...
'Yeh acchi baat hai... Anjy tum coffee banao... and meet us in Ridzy room... Let's go girl... We had some awesomeness news to take out from Ridzy...' Muskaan said...

They all move to Ridzy room while Anjali went to make coffee... Anjali serve coffee for Rahul, Atul and Armaan who joins them a minute ago changing and was drying his hair now while his eyes were busy on the tv not moving away for a second...
They didn't know wht the girl's were up to...



IN RIDDHIMA ROOM...


RIDDHIMA'S POV...

When I saw Armaan coming inside I felt my cheeks turn much more red seeing him looking more hot and sexy as he was wet... Not looking at him, I move my gaze away and I know if anyone caught me checking him that too them around me they will tease me to death...
Saying I need to change, I move to my room knowing Armaan gaze was following me...

I change to a comfortable warm dress as I was feeling cold and my hands were like ice... Soft and cold... To give it warm, I rub my hands on my arms as a shiver run down my spine... I move to the window looking outside still it was raining... Not heavily... I closed my eyes and flashback came in front of my eyes the moment he and I spend a few minutes ago...

'Someone is still day dreaming...' I heart Sapna saying... I turn around to look Sapna coming with Muskaan and Nikki followed behind... I know there questions will start and I know there wasn't any escape for me today...

But I was so happy and wants to tell them, share them this new feeling... Also wants to tell them How much right I feel this time taking such a decision of my life... Everyone is happy, specially mom and dad...
I just couldn't control my self so I run to them and hugs them... I know they was shocked becox of the sudden hug but I didn't dare to move becox I was needing it so badly...



RIDDHIMA POV END



Muskaan and Sapna were surprise of the sudden hug... They wasn't expecting this but was happy to their friend... They hugs her back and Nikki stay little away watching the beautiful bond they share... After sometimes they heard Riddhima sobbing and they was confused... They try to come out from the hug but she wasn't leaving any of them...

Even Nikki was surprise... She move closed to Riddhima and care her back trying to calm her down...
'Kya huva Ridzy... Ro kyu rahi ho...' Muskaan ask as everyone was getting worried of sudden change of her behavior...
A while ago she was so happy and blushing, but now wht has happen...
'humhe batao Ridzy... Kya huva... tum tik ho na...' Sapna said trying to come out from the hug but she wasn't ready...

Sapna. Muskaan and Nikki were helpless now... Riddhima was sobbing and she wasnt answering anyone question... Then only Anjali came with coffee...
'Here goes hot hot cof...' she stop when she saw Riddhima hugging and the helpless faces of others...
She ask from her eyes wht happen and other just saw Riddhima who was clicking to them... Anjali heard her soft sobbing and Nikki took the tray from Anjali so she move to Riddhima...
'Princess...' Anjali call her caring her hair...Leaving Muskaan and Sapna she hugs her di...
Anjali let her be like that for sometimes and she keeps caring her back... Muskaan, Sapna and Nikki sits on the bed looking at the two sisters and after sometimes Anjali asked softly...
' R u ok Princess...' To Riddhima who needs nods her head still not coming out from the hug...
'Chalo... ab no more crying ok...' Anjali said coming out from the hug and wiping the tears from Riddhima face...

Soon Riddhima and Anjali sat on the bed with others and they got their coffee on their hand... No one says anything for some times and keep looking each other...
'So can we know wht really happen...' Anjali asked...
She knows no one will dare to ask as she was already in a bad mood...
'Kuch nehi di.. Bas I was feeling so happy...' Riddhima said smiling and a blush took over her cheeks...
'Wht...' Everyone shouted in surprise...
They were thinking something happen and here madam was only crying becox of happiness... A frown took over Riddhima face hearing them...
It was Nikki who spoke first...
'Wht... U was crying becox u was happy...' Riddhima nod when Nikki ask this...
'Really... Really u was only crying becox of happiness...' Muskaan ask...
Big frown took place over Riddhima face when she answer them, 'Haan Muski... Khush hoke main ro nehi sakti kya...'
'Ro sakti hai... Lekiin khush hoke aise ro rahi ti tu ki Armaan ne kal haan kaha aur aaj reject kardi...' Sapna said...

Next moment she received a smash from Riddhima on her arm...
'Ouch...' She scream of hurt..
'Princess...' Anjali said caring Sapna arm where she smash...
'dekho na di yeh log... main kya khush hone se ro nehi sakti...' Riddhima asked cutely with a pout...
'Of course u can Princess... Lekin phir kabhi itni buri tarah se mat ro na... main bhi dar gayi ti yeh soch kar pata nehi kya huva hoga...' Anjali said hugging her side way...
'Sorry didu... But i was really in need of those hugs...' Riddhima said with a smile as little tears twinkle in her beautiful eyes...
'Awww...' as Riddhima said this everyone hugs her...

After sharing a friendly hug including Nikki, everyone sit back again with their hot coffee to enjoy...
'But iska yeh matlab nehi hum bhul gayi tujhe poochne kal raat ki baare main hah...' Muskaan said in a teasing voice...
'Haan... We need every single detail after u guys left from the parrt...' Sapna said...
Red color was glowing in Riddhima face and she was looking everywhere other then them... 'Woh... main...' Riddhima was to make some excused but Nikki minds was to fast then Riddhima's...
'U dont have any escape today Ridzy... Ooppsss... Would be bhabs...' She said poking Riddhima arm with her elbow...

Riddhima knows they wouldn't leave her today... Also they wouldn't feel shame on asking Armaan if she don't tell them wht happen last night and today...
'Wht u r thinking princess... U couldn't escape and we deserve to know everything... Little and big darling...
So just throw the beans and relieve the truth of last night...' Anjali said
As a shy smile took over her face, Riddhima start telling them knowing they wouldn't stop asking and wht would be the result after they know all that... But did she has another option...???



IN DOWNSTAIRS...


Match was over soon and boys rest their back where they had been sitting...
They didn't talk for sometimes and soon Atul and Rahul realized Armaan was only there... 'Bhai... tu kab aaya...' Atul said jumping on him as soon as he saw him...
Rahul also look when Atul said that only to know they both wasn't the only one who was enjoying the match last minute play...
'Saale... Bhai bolte hai aur pata nehi main kabse yaha hoon.. Aur tu Rahul... Tujhe bhi...' Armaan said pushing Atul as he was trying to hug...
'Arey yaar, match dekhte waqt kiya pata hota koan hai ya koan nehi... Waise kal raat tu party ki beech main kaha gayab hogaya ta.. hah...' Rahul said knowing the truth just to tease him...
'Rahoooll...
I know tujhe sab kuch pata hai... Zyada acting karne ki jarurat nehi hai samjha...
Aur tujhe kiya lagta hai... Tu acting main master kiya hai... Wrong... Over acting ho raha ta...' Armaan said resting his back on the couch post...

Before Rahul reply Armaan, Atul spoke...
'Yaar... yeh kya baat lekar tum dono beit gaya... mujhe bohot bhuk laga hai... Yeh Anjali aur baaki sab kaha hai...' Atul said looking around not to see any girl around or not to hear any noise anywhere near them...
'Hoga kamre main... Wht else girls had to do... Gossiping and all...
Waise Armaan... we also need to know full detail of last night...' Rahul said winking to Atul...
'Common guys...
It was nothing special... she just brush out seeing me and Tani so closed... Actually she was jealous and I also brush out seeing the way she was taking this to her heart and u know...
Abviously it was to happen when u see someone u love so closed to some other guy or girl...' Armaan said...

Atul and Rahul knows it would be really difficult to make Armaan speak when he dont want to... And also knows he would like to keep his personal life privacy... But friends se kiya chupana right...
'Fine as u say bhai...Main Anjali koh bhulakar laati hoon... Im staving...' Atul said getting up to go and call Anjali...

Only he was half way to wards the stairs they heard girls giggling... All look upstairs only to see Riddhima running behind Muskaan... Others were laughing and Armaan who saw Riddhima in red body hug top and black jeans was memorized with her beauty...
Armaan was so lost admiring Riddhima beauty he didnt know when Muskaan came to his way and hide his behind.. She was holding behind him and Riddhima was trying to catch her...

As Armaan was blocking her way, she was getting irritate... Frown was on her face making her look like a kid...
'Armaan... Moveee...' Riddhima said...
Armaan who was lost in her beauty didn't reach and just keep looking at her face...

Next moment Armaan lost his balance and he fall with Riddhima under him... Don't know why suddenly it happen...
Armaan look at Riddhima who's eyes were shut with fear of hitting the hard ground that too with him on top of her... Some hair was on her face hiding his view.. Armaan move one hand upto her face moving her hair behind her ear... Another hand was around her pitty waist holding securely... As soon Riddhima feels his hand caring her cheeks, she open her eyes only to lost in those beautiful eyes of his...
 .....................................................................



 PART 18...

As Armaan was blocking her way, she was getting irritate... Frown was on her face making her look like a kid...
'Armaan... Moveee...' Riddhima said...
Armaan who was lost in her beauty didn't reach and just keep looking at her face...

Next moment Armaan lost his balance and he fall with Riddhima under him... Don't know why suddenly it happen...
Armaan look at Riddhima who's eyes were shut with fear of hitting the hard ground that too with him on top of her... Some hair was on her face hiding his view.. Armaan move one hand up to her face moving her hair behind her ear...
Another hand was around her petty waist holding securely... As soon Riddhima feels his hand caring her cheeks, she open her eyes only to lost in those beautiful eyes of his...

Both share a beautiful eye-lock and Armaan look at her lips which was apply strawberry lip gloss... It was looking so yummy before moving his face closed to her lips Armaan look at her eyes...
A shy smile form in Riddhima face when she saw Armaan looking at her lips and them meet his eyes with her...

Before anything could happen they heard others coughing fake to bring both back to the real world... Armaan stand and help Riddhima to stand and both were going red red knowing everyone were staring at them...
'Lagta hai yeh dono koh dur rakhna chahiyeh... Shaadi se pehle sab barriers cross kardi toh...' Muskaan said...
'Muski... Tumne phirse bola...' Riddhima said coming back to her normal behavior...

Anjali, Sapna and Nikki laugh hearing them again starting with their fight...
'Yeh ho kya raha hai... humhe bhi batao... Hum bhi tum log ki saat haslunga...' Atul said...
'Haan kyu nehi...
tum teeno koh bhi bata dunga... Lekin Armaan hasenge nehi...' Muskaan said...
'U r so dead Muskaan Chadda...' Saying this Riddhima run after Muskaan again...
'Pehle pakadlo Riddhima Gupta...' Muskaan said running back towards the stairs...

Other girls keep laughing and Boy's were still in shocked not knowing wht was happening...
'Anjy...huva kya hai...' Armaan asked at last...
'Zyada kuch nehi my to be brother in law...Muskaan ne baat karte karte tum dono ki shaadi karke honeymoon tak pochgaya...
Yeh jaante huve bhi ki tum dono abhi sagai tak baat ki uski aage nehi...' Anjali said...
'Toh is main gussa hone wali kya baat hai...' Rahul said...
'Wohi toh...
Madam koh pata nehi gussa kyu aaya...' Sapna said...
'Chalo yeh sab chodo...
Anjali please kuch banao... bohottt bhuk laga hai... Aur ab toh lunch ki time bhi hone koh aaya hai...' Atul said...
'Haan tum log beito... Hum bas 30mins main khana bana deti hoon...' Anjali said...

Armaan who was still thinking why Riddhima was reacting so much about the wedding and honeymoon part was still standing looking at the stairs where Muskaan and Riddhima run back upstairs leaving them there...
'Main Ridz aur Muskaan koh bhulake aati hoon...' Sapna said and Nikki went to the kitchen with Anjali...

Soon Riddhima and Muskaan came down... Riddhima mood wasn't good by the teasing, she was frowning and Muskaan keep making cute faces saying sorry...
Riddhima got busy with helping Anjali with lunch and Muskaan keep begging her to forgive for the teasing...
'Ab maaf karbhi toh Ridzy...
Waise bhi galat kiya kaha Muski ne...
Sagai ki baad toh Shaadi honga... aur honeymoon bhi...' Anjali said...
'Lekin di...
Maine aap logo koh sab kuch bataya... phir bhi...
I really dont like it okkk... Aur toh aur aap logo ne boys koh bhi batadiya...' Riddhima said as she wasn't happy with this...

She knows now Armaan will ask her why she was reacting like this when Muskaan mention about the wedding and honeymoon...
She just want to spend sometimes with Armaan... To know each other better... Also they have talk about that when they think they should marry, only they will talk about it... Then why today it self...
'Relax Ridzy...
Muski aise kahengi toh tohdi na tere shaadi hojaenge Armaan se itni jaldi...
Hum sabko pata hai tum dono ek dusre ke saat aur time spend karna chahenge... Aur bhi jaanta hoon tum dono koh abhi bohot kuch jaanna hai ek dusre ke baare main...' Nikki said...
'wohi toh...
Maine toh bas mazak main bola...
Sorry Ridzy... Mujhe laga tum ab pehle jaise rahenge...
Hum tujhe aise tease karengi toh tum newly wedded bride ki tarah sharmaengi...
lekin aisa kuch nehi huva... Sorry tumhe accha nehi laga maine aise mazak ki... ab se nehi karungi...' Muskaan said and leave from the kitchen...

Everyone understand Muskaan was hurt by Riddhima behavior...
Everyone knows Muskaan was only teasing and having some fun... Like others, even she was happy to know her best friend got a person who adores her...
She just want to see her best friend happy like before... She had miss her best friend from the past two years and hearing she was in relation, she hope to have her best friend back...
But maybe she was wrong to think about it... Now Riddhima is not like before... She is really changed...
Sapna and Nikki look at Anjali who blink her eyes saying she will handle Riddhima...
'Sapna, Nikki... Tum dono dinning table tayyar karo...
Main Ridzy ki help karti hoon...' Anjali said...

Sapna and Nikki left leaving two sister's alone... Sapna knows Anjali would be the only one to make Riddhima understand... After all her princess always listen to her...
Riddhima was lost in her thought when she felt someone hand on her shoulder... She look to see Anjali with a disappointed face...
'Princess...
Yeh tumne Muski se tik se baat nehi ki...
Hum sabko pata hai how much Muski miss her naughty best friend...
Tumhe pata hai Ridzy...
Muski ne mere paas aakhe kitni royi...' Anjali said softly...
'Lekin Di...' Riddhima was to start but Anjali stop her in middle... 'Meri baat dhyan se suno Ridzy... Hum sab jaante hai tumhare life main yeh 2 saal main bohot kuch huva hai... Humne kabhi tumhe is baare main baat nehi ki...
Lekin aaj tumne ek naya rishta banaya hai... Armaan ki saat...
Toh mujhe aur baaki sabko lagta hai tumhe ab us darse baahar aana chahiyeh...
Princess... Armaan bohot accha ladka hai...
Apne mom dad aur behen se bohot pyar karta hai... Apne doston se bhi utna pyar karta hai ki woh kuch bhi karne ke liye tayyar hota hai hamesha...
Jo Sid ne tumhare saat kiya... Use bhul jao ab...
Sab ladke Sid jaise nehi hote... Ab dekho Atul koh... Rahul koh... kiya tumhe lagta hai woh log Sid jaise ho... Nehi na...
Aur Armaan bhi un dono ka dost hai...
Tumhe kiya lagta hai Princess... Armaan bhi Sid...'

Anjali stop when Riddhima look at her face... Smiling Anjali care Riddhima hair...
'Princess...
Hum sabko woh bubbly... naughty Ridzy chahiyeh...
Sabko hasane wali... sabko nakre dikhane wali... sabkoh tang karke apni baat manvane wali princess chahiyeh...
Sach kahun toh hum yeh dukhi wali Ridzy koh nehi jaante...
Kiya humhe humhari purani wali princess mil sakte hai ab...' Anjali asked...

Little tears were shining in Riddhima eyes...
Knowing how much everyone had miss her in their life... It is true everyone love her to the core...
But loosing the naughty bubbly Riddhima, it hurts them to the bit... She only know this today...
'Di...
Main aapse promise karti hoon...
Aaj se main kabhi nehi roungi us baat koh lekhe...
Aur main koshish karungi Armaan ki saat aise haste muskuraate huve rehne ki...
Main nehi chahti meri wajahse kissi koh dukh ho...
Mujhe pata hai meri wajahse aap log bohot dukhi hai... Main kiya karu di...
us waqt mujhe laga main Sid se pyar karti hoon issiliye mujhe itna dukh huva...
Lekin aapko pata hai...
Jab mujhe yakeen huva main Armaan se pyar karta hoon... Tab mujhe pata chala saccha pyar kaise hote hai... Main jo Armaan ke liye mehsoos karti hoon, maine kabhi woh Sid ke liye mehsoos nehi ki Di...
Mujhe bura laga Sid ne mujhe use kiya, issiliye maine itni din tak kissi ladke koh apne paas aane nehi di...
Lekin Di, main chahkar bhi Armaan koh apne aapse dur nehi karpayi...'

Riddhima was holding Anjali hands and now even Anjali had tears in her eyes...
She was so happy at last her princess got someone who she loves... The most important thing was also that person love her princess the most...
'Main tumhare liye bohot khush hoon princess...
Aur isbaar, tumne sahi ladka chuna hai apne liye...' Anjali said hugging her...
'Aur tum bilkul bhi tension mat lena... Armaan ne aisa kuch karne ki socha bhi toh hum sab milke use dekhlunga...'
'Di... Mujhe pura yakeen hai Armaan aisa kuch nehi karenge...' Riddhima said coming out from the hug...
'Oye hoyye... Kya baat hai... Itna pyar karte ho use...' Anjali said patting her cheeks with love...
Riddhima nod her head and before either of them could say anything Sapna came...
'Aap do beheno ki baat khatam hogayi huvi toh kya hum khaana serve kar sakte hai...
Yeh boys humhari sir kaa raha hai...' She said...
'Haan... Sab kuch hogaya...' Anjali said...

Soon everyone was sitting to have lunch other then Muskaan... After leaving the kitchen, she straight went to the room... Nikki call her to come to have lunch but she refused to come and join them...
'Main use lekar aati hoon...' Riddhima said...
Sapna and Anjali knows it would be the best to let Riddhima handle her... She was the one who hurted her and she will make her smile...


IN ROOM...


Muskaan was standing near the window looking outside... Still it was raining and water drops were on the closed window...
Muskaan keep looking outside while little tears form in her eyes... She felt bad knowing, her best friend wasn't in her normal behavior like before...
No one can understand how much she had miss her...
She is the one always Riddhima share every little thing and do fun... But today, still she was acting like the one they never knew...

Muskaan heard someone knocking the door and without asking who it was she said to come in... Sometimes before, Nikki came asking to come down and have lunch but she refused saying she isnt hungry...
'Madam... Aap yaha kiya kar rahi ho... Chalo na garma garam paratta banayi hai maine... Tumhari favorite...' Riddhima said coming inside...
'Mujhe bhuk nehi hai Ridzy... Tum jaake khalo...' Muskaan said still not looking at her...
'Yeh kiya baat huvi...
maine Armaan ki saat time spend karne ke bajai yaha tum sabke saat time spend karne aayi ho aur tum...
Chalo na Muski...
Nehi toh woh sab sab kuch khatam karlenge...' Riddhima said coming and standing next to her...

Muskaan didnt reply her just keep looking outside... Riddhima knows she had to talk with her seriously and politely...
'Im sorry Muski...
Mujhe aise react nehi karni chahiyeh ti...
but main kya karu Muski... tumne pata haina... Sid ne woh...'
'Mujhe sab pata hai Ridzy...' Muskaan cut her... 'Mujhe sab kuch yaad hai Ridzy... Lekin yeh kiya baat huvi... Ab tum uske baare main sochke apne future kyu kharab karna chahte ho...
Please Ridzy... Sab ladke Sid jaisa nehi hota...
Aur Armaan toh, bilkul bhi nehi...'
'Main jaanti hoon Muski...
Lekin pata nehi kyu main abhi shaadi yeh liye tayyar nehi hoon... aur jab tumne shaadi honeymoon yeh sabki baare main baat ki toh mujhe awkward laga...' Riddhima said...

Muskaan look at Riddhima knowing she was feeling guilty for talking her best friend like that...
Also Muskaan knows Anjali might had give her a long lecture... Not if, no one can make Riddhima claim so easily...
'It's ok Ridzy...
Mujhe bas meri purane wali naughty best friend chahiyeh ti...
Issiliye maine yeh sab kaha... But believe me... Main tujhe hurt karna nehi chahte...
Bas tujhe hamesha haste huve... Muskurate huve khush dekhna chahti hoon...' Muskaan said...
Riddhima hugs Muskaan knowing how much she miss her best friend...
'I promise Muski...
Jaldi tumhe tumhari purani best friend miljaengi...
Im sorry...' Riddhima said...
Muskaan hugs her back wiping the tears which fall from her eyes hearing Riddhima will be trying to live like before...


IN DINING AREA...


Everyone were enjoying the lunch and waiting for Riddhima and Muskaan to joins them...
'Yeh dono itna time kyu laga rahi hai...' Sapna asked Anjali who was sitting next to her...
'pata nehi...
Hope Princess Muski koh manake leaaye...' Anjali said...
'Mana liya...'Nikki said who was sitting infront of Anjali and Sapna...
As Anjali and Sapna back were towards the stairs they didn't see Riddhima and Muskaan coming...
'Woh dekho...' Nikki pointed towards the stairs and with Anjali and Sapna the boys also look...

Muskaan and Riddhima were coming laughing about some joke Muskaan crack...
Soon everyone finished lunch laughing and pulling each other leg...
Armaan keep asking Riddhima to come outside with him but she was saying no from her eyes...

Soon everyone moves to the hall and decide to watch a movie...
As it might rain they decided to spend the day inside...
Movie started and Riddhima serve coffee for everyone...
As others were so lost in the movie, they didn't know when Armaan leaves...
After sometimes Riddhima also left making sure no one notice them...


IN TERRACE...


Armaan was standing looking at the sky... It was cloudy and might started to rain again soon... So this moment it has stop raining...
Enjoying his coffee in this cold weather in open terrace, Armaan wait for Riddhima to come...
Soon he heard footsteps and he moves near the door hiding himself so Riddhima didn't see him when she come inside...
Riddhima open the door and came inside her eyes searching only one person...
But she didn't see him so she call his name... 'Armaan...'


ARMAAN POV...

I hide myself near the door so Riddhima couldn't see me when she come...
I saw her opening the door and entering with a red body hugging top and black jeans...
I was memorized by her beauty when I saw her first coming chasing Muskaan down after she change...
I was desperate to hold her in my arms hiding her from the evil eyes from the world...
I was so bless to be in love with her knowing there r million and millions girls in this world and only she was the girl meant to be to me...

She was the Angel that god had send for me... I thank god in my heart for giving me such a nice girl as my life partner...
I wait her to see me but when she didn't see me anywhere, she call my nice... 'Armaan...'
I felt so blissful when she take my name...

It sounds to sweet and melodic... As if someone was singing his name in a romantic tune...
I don't know when my feet move in its own... Next moment I was standing behind her waiting her to turn and look at me...
I know she always feels my surrounding when I am around her...
As I was expecting her to turn, soon she turn and bumped to me...

Before both loose balance, I hold her from her waist pulling her closed to me... Her hands were on my chest and automatically I hand on of her hand from my free hand which was on my chest... closed to my heart where only she belongs, no other girl...

ARMAAN POV END...


RIDDIMA POV...

I call his name when I didn't see him around... Wondering were he might go... I turn around to leave only to bumped to someone and I was surprised it was only Armaan...
He was looking at me lost...
Before we lost balance he hold me by my waist and pull me closed to him...
My hands were on his chest and he hold my one hand by his free...
I look at his eyes meaning those blue ones to see only love and care...
It was so pure... I feel I was in the top of cloud9...
Knowing I couldn't have get a life partner who loves and care for me so much, I thank god in my heart...

RIDDHIMA POV END...


Both were lost in each other eyes...
Armaan move a hair which was blocking his view by coming on her face...
Feeling Armaan cold finger brush her face, Riddhima closed her eyes...
Armaan keep admiring how beautiful she was looking in this cold weather... Still know he only saw her in salwar and saari...
It was the first time he was seeing her in top and jeans not like other days...
Armaan cup her face with his both hand and kiss her forehead...
Placing his lips on her forehead, he press his lips there for sometimes before moving to look at her face...

He saw the closeness was effecting her as the cheeks color were turning red...
Also it was breezing blowing cold wind to the atmosphere making it romantic for two new love birds who just start their new life with each other...
Armaan kiss her closed eyelash and then her cheeks...
He look at her lips which was shivering with becox of the cold weather. he move his lips closed to her only Riddhima run away from there...

Armaan smile seeing how shy Riddhima could be he move and catch her before she go inside the house...
Pushing her towards wall Armaan blocked her way...
'Armaan... Wht r u doing... Koi dekh lega...' Riddhima said as her heart skip a beat with the sudden pull by Armaan and him standing so closed to her...
'Dekhne doh...Waise bhi sabko pata hai now we r in relation...' Armaan said caring her cheek with his fingers back...

Riddhima closed her eyes when she felt Armaan caring her cheek... Shiver run down in her spine... Armaan was standing so closed to her that it would be impossible to wind to go through between them...
'U r looking Beautiful...' Armaan whisper closed to her ears...
A shy smile took place on her lips and she hide her face on his chest...
'Waise mujhe batane ki jarurat nehi hai but u look sexy in this outfit...' Armaan said...

Riddhima was shocked to hear a compliment from Armaan...
She never thought Armaan would notice this...She move looking at him with surprise look...
'Seriously...
why u r looking at me like that...' Armaan asked...
'Tum Armaan hi hona...' Riddhima asked not believing her ears...
'Koi shak...' Armaan ask
'Maine nehi socha tum itna mujhe notice karenge... Specially my cloths...' Riddhima said still who was in shocked...
Armaan smile knowing it was really like him to compliment a girl...

But when he is comfortable with anyone, or any relation he show his naughty side to them along with the nice side...
'Shocked...' Armaan asked meeting his eyes with hers...
Riddhima nod her head...
'Yeh toh kuch bhi nehi hai...
Tumhe kiya laga... I would be a boring n non romantic person..' Armaan asked smiling...
Riddhima nod her head as it was how she was thinking about him to be...
'Wrong...
Jab main kissi se sach mann se apna ta hoon toh main pura koshish karta hoon sache mann se rishte koh nibane ki...
Main baaki sabke liye, dhuniya ke liye aise strict, workaholic person dikhte hai...
Lekin apne koh liye...
Main fun loving person hoon... Aur mere shaitaani abhi tak tumne dekha nehi hai Riddhima...
Maine suna hai hai tum bhi bohot shaitaan karti ho...
Lekin main ek baat bataun...' Armaan said still caring her cheek with his thumb...

Riddhima look at his eyes searching for the answer... Armaan smile how much his one touch effect her and can create war inside her...
'Main bhi tumse kam nehi hoon...
Tum Shaitaan hai toh main bhi Maha shaitaan hoon...' Armaan said...
'Really...'Riddhima asked still not believing her ears...
'Really...
Waise main yeh baat karne ke liye nehi bhulaya tumko yaha... Mujhe tumse kuch poochna ta...' Armaan said changing the topic...

Armaan was playing with her fingers while asking this and on hand was on the wall from her side... He was standing closed and still Riddhima was standing with her back resting on the wall behind her...
'Kya poochna ta Mr. Workaholic koh...' Riddhima asked while a naughty smile form in her lips...
Armaan look at her one brow up asking wht she mean by that as he was telling her few minutes ago about him...
Riddhima giggle seeing Armaan expression and controlling it, 'Sorry... Poocho kya poochna hai...'
'Hmmm... I was wondering, can u go out with me tonight...' Armaan asked...
Armaan hold his breath for a second not knowing wht will Riddhima answer be...
'Kya.. Bahar...' Riddhima asked as if she was shocked to hear this..
'Kyu... Tum mere saat baahar nehi jaa sakte kya...' Armaan asked while pouting...
'Woh main...' Riddhima stop and for Armaan it seems the clock stop at the moment not knowing wht will be Riddhima answer... 


PART 19...



'Hmmm... I was wondering, can u go out with me tonight...' Armaan asked...
Armaan hold his breath for a second not knowing wht will Riddhima answer be...
'Kya.. Bahar...' Riddhima asked as if she was shocked to hear this..
'Kyu... Tum mere saat baahar nehi jaa sakte kya...' Armaan asked while pouting...
'Woh main...' Riddhima stop and for Armaan it seems the clock stop at the moment not knowing wht will be Riddhima answer...
'Woh main kiya Riddhima...' Armaan ask...
Riddhima look at his expression and hiding her naughty smile, with a serious face she said... 'Armaan... I am so sorry... Lekin main raat koh kissi aur ki saat bahar jaa rahi hoon... Maine already use promise ki main uski saat jaungi...'
Armaan was shocked to here this...
Only last night they confess and tonight, she is going out with someone else...
'Koan hai woh...' Armaan ask making distance between them...

Armaan didn't get the clue that Riddhima was messing around him... As Armaan said he is much more naughty then her, Riddhima thought to have some fun with him when he ask her if she could go out with him...
'Koi hai...
Jo main bohot pyar karti hoon... Aur maine use promise kiya...
Ab promise toh tod nehi sakti na... Accha nehi lagta...' Riddhima said moving away as Armaan make the distance between them...

Riddhima move closed to the railing looking at the cloudy sky, as it was getting ready to pour the water which it was collecting from few seconds, or minutes...
Armaan was on the spot where he had been standing not believing his ears... He just keep looking at Riddhima as she moves to the railing looking at the sky and enjoying the coldness...

When Armaan didn't say anything, Riddhima turn to look at him who was looking at her with a blank expression... Smile form in Riddhima lips as the naughty spark play in her big eyes... Knowing she was successful to play the prank on him...
'Kya huva Armaan...
Aise kyu dekh rahi ho... Maine kuch galat kaha kiya...' Riddhima said acting all innocent...
'Nehi but...
How could u say yes to someone else Riddhima...
We just confess and u r going out with someone else just becox u promise... and Who the hell is he...' Armaan said as he frown asking those question and seeing Riddhima smile...

Seeing Armaan priceless expression, Riddhima couldn't control her smile anymore...
She started to laugh holding her stomach... This make a confused Armaan move confused...
'OMG Armaan... Look at ur face... hahaha...' Riddhima said while continuing laughing...
'Riddhima... Yeh sab kiya hai yaar...' Armaan said now moving to her...
'So how was it Mr. Not Super Cool Armaan Mallik... Am I Naughty or not...' Riddhima said controlling her laugh...

Now only it hit in his mind, she was messing around him just to prove she can be as naughty as he... But Armaan didn't like the fact that she said she was going out with someone...
'Riddhima...' Armaan call out her name pulling her in his arm...
Riddhima stop laughing when she felt the sudden pull and next minute she was in his arms... His arms around her waist pulling her closed while her hand on his chest...
'Armaan... Kiya kar rahe ho... Koi aajege... Leave me...' Riddhima said getting all alert with the sudden closeness...

Armaan was enjoying how Riddhima got all scared of the closeness and seeing her expression he thought of taking revenge... But it was a love and cute revenge...
'Kyun... Abhi toh bohot zor zor se has rahi ti... Ab kiya huva...' Armaan said...
Riddhima look at Armaan and then try to get out from his hold but he was much more strong for her...
'rehne de Riddhima... still i dont give a loose, u couldnt got out from my hold... Aise hilte rahengi toh tumhe hi dard hoga..' Armaan said...

Riddhima knows whtever Armaan said it was true... So she stop moving and look at Armaan with a pleasing expression...
'Its not gonna work Riddhima... So stop making those faces ok... Not before u tell me why u wouldn't go out with me tonight...' Armaan asked not wasting any more time...
'Maine kab mana kiya Armaan...
I just said ki main kissi ki saat jaa rahi hoon... Aur tum buddu hai toh main kiya karu...
Itna bhi yaad nehi hai kal raat tumne hi kaha mujhe bahar lejaenge aur phirse pooch rahi mujhse main jaengi ya nehi...' Riddhima said...
'So u think to play around with me for that hah... Not bad Ms.Riddhima soon to be Mallik..' Armaan said when he got wht she was doing...
'Aur nehi toh...
Mujhe kaise pata hota tum itni buddu ho...' Riddhima said with a naughty smile...
'Main Buddu nehi hoon okkk...
Accha toh tum mere saat chalenge na...' Armaan said not wanting to continue the argument...

Riddhima act like she was thinking... Then 'Tumhe Papa se...' Riddhima started to say but Armaan cut her...
'Papa aur Mamma dono se permission le li maine... Please please please ab toh bol doh jaenge...' Armaan said...
'Sabki permission le hi liya hai toh mujhse kyu pooch rahi ho...' Riddhima said with a cute pout...
'kyunki jaana toh tumhe hi haina mere saat... baakiyonki permission toh bas aise hi le li... Mujhe pata hai tum kuch na kuch bahana banaenge...' Armaan said...

Riddhima look at Armaan meeting her eyes with his thanking god for giving her such a good person as her life partner...
She was really feeling on the top of the world knowing how much Armaan care about her every small small thing... How he wants to make her feel comfortable around him and without her and other permission he wouldn't take any step in their life...

When Riddhima didn't answer or say anything, Armaan move his lips closed to her ear sending shiver down her spine... She closed her eyes when she felt Armaan hot breath on her earlobe...Her breath go fast and it was beating like she run for miles...
'I will pick u up by 7 30pm... Be ready...
And I know u says yes last night, Still I wanna conform if u may feel uncomfortable we can go some other time...
But ur silent says its a yes from ur side... So be ready... And wear white if u can...' Armaan said huskily and before moving out he kiss her earlobe and leaving a shocked Riddhima he went down to join their friends...

When Armaan leave, Riddhima hold the railing for support... The closed proximity reach to the deep spine of her body sending the new feeling inside her body...
It feels so much bless with so much new vibrates...

For sometimes, Riddhima was lost not knowing how to react... She never feels like this before if anyone come so closed to her... And she never let anyone come so closed to her... Not even that bustard...
Then how she let him come so closed... That too they just discover the new emotional that was building inside them... How fast she was moving on, she dont know why but when he is around her, she feels a secure that he is always there to protect her...



IN DOWNSTAIRS...


Everyone was so lost in the movie, they didnt know when Armaan aur Riddhima leave from there and when Armaan came back after spending sometimes with his girlfriend...
He took his place but his mind were busy thinking about one person...
He was so much happy that Riddhima is now in his life... After 2yrs, she was his now... No one knows how much he had wait for this day and he was in the top of the world...

He make a promise that he will try his best to give all the happiness she deserve in her life... Make her believe that he is different from others... How much she means to him... Not only she need her body, he needs her soul to live and breath...
Knowing very about her past, he felt bad for her but before knowing it he was so much in love with her, he just put the thought out from his mind making it understand he wouldn't let her know he knows about her past till she dont tell her by her own...

Also that he will wait for the day Riddhima come and share about her past, before that he wouldn't ask a single question and let her have her space to give this relation the time she needs...
He knows even she loves him a lot... and know he didn't have any fear... Fear of loosing her or she might walk away from his life...

He was busy lost in his thought when he felt a breeze past away making his sense awake letting him know she was around him... He closed his eyes feeling her present and slowly open his eyes to see her coming down from the stairs lost in her own thought...
He knows she was thinking wht just happen in the terrace... He also knows she was just discovering some new emotions and feelings... That she never discover before in her life...

Smile play on his lips seeing how much cute she was looking when she was in deep thought...
She look at him when she felt a strong gaze on her and knowing it was only him checking her out, i blush crept on her cheek turning it pink...
For a second their eyes met and soon Riddhima look away...
She move to the kitchen to keep her cup and came out to see everyone lost in the movie...

Riddhima look at Armaan who asked her to come and sit next to her through his eyes...Smiling with a shy smile, Riddhima sit next him and turn her gaze towards the movie...
Both was looking at the tv but their mind were somewhere else...



IN GUPTA HOUSE...


Riddhima was getting ready to go out with Armaan for their very first date...
Armaan had already call 10times just to conform she is going or not...Riddhima who got irritate with his calls, put the mobile to silent and told her mother not to pass any call to her till she didn't get ready...

She had gone to collect a new white evening gown which comes up to her knee leaving the beautiful long leg bare with matching high heels...
She got in the room at 6pm to get ready for her date...
Padma came to see her but she refused to open the door saying he is not ready yet...
She came back from Anjali place around 5pm as before that she had gone to the mall to pick up the dress...

Padma knock the door becox Armaan came on sharp 7 30pm...
He was waiting for her in the hall while Padma went to tell her Armaan was there... As Riddhima mobile was on silent, Armaan didn't bother to call her knowing she wouldn't answer...
'Kiya huva Mamma...' Riddhima call from inside...
'Princess... Armaan is waiting for u in downstairs...' Padma call...
'wht... Itni jaldi aagaya woh... Uff.. Yeh Armaan bhi na...' Padma hear Riddhima comment...
'Arey jaldi kaha hai Princess...

Before Padma could turn around to leave she hear the door unlocked and she turn around to see her princess all set to go...
When she lays her eyes on her princess she was lost in words...



IN HALL...


Armaan was waiting for Riddhima to come soon... Padma welcome his inside with a bright smile and a hug... Letting him settle in the hall comfortably she went to call Riddhima...Shashank wasn't in home as he had to go for an emergency...
Armaan wait for his lady love to come and he look around the hall to see a wall with photos of the Gupta's...

He moved to have a closed look and saw his love looking the same in her childhood too... He was lost in admiring his love when he heard Riddhima giggle...
He turn around and forgot to breath the sight he saw in front of her...
Riddhima was coming down the stairs and Padma aunty said something near her ear that make her giggle and blush adoring her cheeks...

Armaan was on his step not moving his gaze or blink his eyes when he saw how beautiful Riddhima was looking in white evening dress which come up to her knee...
She was wearing matching high heels... Her hair was open to let it fly around her freely...
Little make up which show her natural beauty then hiding it from the make up... She put a simple necklace... One single bracelet on her left hand with a adoring ring... On right hand she wear a silver matching wrist watch...

She was looking like an Angel... She is an Angel... His Angel...
Which came to his life to make it so much beautiful then it was before...
Armaan lost of words and keep looking at him... No words came out from his mouth...
'Armaan...' Padma call her shaking him little when he didn't say anything...
'Haan Aunty...I mean Mom...' Armaan said moving his gaze away from Riddhima knowing he will be lost of word if he keeps looking at her...

Padma giggle to see blush crept of his cheeks when he was caught red headed glaring at Riddhima...
'Mamma...' Riddhima says when Padma giggle...
'Sorry Sorry...
But Armaan looks so cute when he blush... dekhona uske cheeks...' Padma said controlling her laugh...
Riddhima smile to her mom and look at to see her mom was saying the truth... Armaan pout hearing her comment...
'Mom...' He said while his pout deep when he saw Riddhima smile looking at him...
'Chalo.. Ab jao...
And Armaan... I want my daughter by midnight...
I trust u but still, I dont want my daughter to be out after midnight... Not till u two get married ok...' Padma said...
'Ji Mom...' Armaan said...

Armaan offer his hand to Riddhima who accept smiling with a blush on her face...
Saying bye to Padma who send them off from the front door, she closed the door praying to keep both AR happy like this forever...



OUTSIDE GUPTA HOUSE...


When they hear the door closed behind them, leaving Riddhima hands he pull her closed by her waist...
First Riddhima was shocked by his sudden action... But then soon relax...He led her to his car and before opening the door for her to sit, he open the back seat door and took out orchid bouquet just to see the most priceless smile adore in her face...

Armaan forward the bouquet which was accepted by Riddhima...
'To the Most Beautiful Girl in the world and Love of My Life...' Armaan said taking her right hand and kissing her on it...
'Thanks Armaan...' She said shyly as she was collage student and it was her very first date...
Armaan open the door for her like a gentlemen and Soon both were settle and drove of their destination for the night...

As Armaan was driving and every two second he keeps looking at Riddhima who was sitting next to him looking and admiring the beautiful orchids which was on her hand...
She always keep looking at him when she feels his gaze on her... and when their eyes met they smile to each other...
'Hum kaha jaa rahi hai Armaan...' Riddhima asked when Armaan didn't say anything and silently keep driving from the past 20mins...
'Surprise...' Armaan said smiling...
Riddhima pout when she hears it knowing he wouldn't give any straight answer... 'Armaan...'
'Haan Riddhima...' Armaan said the same tone Riddhima call his name... But ignoring Armaan was teasing her...
'Bolo na hum kaha jaa rahe hai...' Riddhima ask him again hope to get the answer...

Armaan stop the car side way... Then look at Riddhima and move closed to her... Riddhima was shocked by his sudden behavior...
'Kiya kar rahi ho Armaan...' Riddhima said moving back a little...
'U trust me...' It was Armaan question... Riddhima didn't know wht to say... Ofcourse she trust him but why was he suddenly asking...
'Haan but...' Armaan put his finger on her lips making her stop saying further...
He rub his thumb on her soft lips making her breath heavily and closed her eyes...

Armaan cup her one cheek with his palm and moving closed place a soft but gentle kiss on her other cheek...
Then he move his face closed to her ear whispering, 'If u do Riddhima, Let me take u to our destination...'
Armaan move and before Riddhima could open her eyes he cover her eyes with cloth...
'Armaan yeh...' She felt his finger on her lips again...
'Trust me...' Riddhima heard him saying and she didnt know wht else to say just nod her head...

Rest of the journey neither Riddhima said anything nor Armaan...
After driving for another 20mins, Armaan stop the car...
Going out from the car, Armaan came and open the door for Riddhima...

Taking her hand in his Armaan asked her to come out...With help of Armaan Riddhima came out and Armaan locked the car before moving ahead...
'Yeh tum mujhe kaha le jaa rahi ho Armaan...' Riddhima asked when they had been walking for like another 20mins...
'Bas hum pochgaye Riddhima...' Armaan said...

Armaan let go off her hand and move back to her to unfold the cloth which was covering her eyes...
Still Riddhima had her eyes closed...
Armaan smile to see the innocent lover of his and holding her side way from her hips he whisper... 'Ab aankhe kholo Riddhima...'

Riddhima slowly open her eyes...
She felt a cool breeze kiss her face making her hair fly... Warm smile took over her rosy lips glowing her face...
When she look ahead her, her breath got stuck...She only felt relax when she felt Armaan closed to her...She look around in amazing how much beautiful the place was...

When she look ahead her, her breath got stuck...She only felt relax when she felt Armaan closed to her...She look around in amazing how much beautiful the place was...

Armaan move closed to he from back with his hands around her waist... Riddhima felt secure in his hold and she was little taken back when she saw how high they were...
'Not more then my love...' Armaan said near her ears as his brush near her ear sending shiver down her spine...

Riddhima slowly turn in his hold not waiting him to leave her... She look at him to meet her eyes with hers... She was lost in the love in his eyes for her...
'I love u...' It was the only words that came from her mouth once she got lost in him...
Armaan smile wide hearing this flashing his million dollar smile with the dimple adore in his cheeks...

Before Armaan could say or do anything, Riddhima move closed to him placing her lips on his right cheek dimple before it vanished...
'And I love ur dimple... It make u look cute..' Riddhima said caring with her thumb on his cheek looking at him with all the love in her eyes...

Armaan place his lips ok her cheek kissing before whispering an 'I love u too...' Next moment she was in his arms hiding from the world...
They keep hugging like this for like eternity when their moment were disturb by Nikki who called Armaan to check if they reach their destination safely...
'Kiya yaar Niks... Can't u just stop disturbing...' And Armaan recived a smack on his arm from Riddhima...
'Armaan...' She felt her ears burn becox of getting ambress how shameless Armaan was... She know Nikki wasn't going to let them go easily becox of wht Armaan says, it sounds llike they were busy doing something they shouldn't do in front of others...



ON THE OTHER HAND IN ATUL MANSION...


As in evening when all were returning back from shopping, they drop Riddhima to her home and others join with Atul and Anjali as they didn't have any other plan for the night...
They celebrate Valentine the previous night so they really didn't felt like being in a big crowd tonight...
So they just decide to have dinner in Atul place and have some fun before the day end...

As Anjali was making dinner with the help of Sapna, Muskaan and Nikki... Boys were in the hall deciding wht to do after dinner...
While making dinner girls did their other favorite game... Gossiping...
The topic was Where Armaan would take Riddhima for their very first date...
'Yaar I wanna call them...' Nikki said roaming from one end to other end in kitchen...
'Nikki... Yaar tum un dono ke baare main itna kyun soch rahi ho...
We r here to enjoy and tum hai ki bas...' Sapna said while making salad...

Muskaan was sitting on the counter as she just finished helping Anjali with dinner... Anjali was putting dishes on the plates before taking it out to the table...
'Yaar I know we r here to enjoy... But U girls r not getting it... I love to irrirtate bhai...
Maine already...' Saying this Nikki started to count from her finger...

Sapna who was cutting the vegetable for salad turn around to look at Nikki... Also Anjali stop on the spot hearing her...
'Maltab tumne already Armaan koh call karke disturb kardi... Muskaan ask who was sitting on the counter and jump when she hears Nikki saying this...
'Haan.. usmain itna hairaan hone wali kiya baat hai...' Nikki said as it was not a big deal...
'Lekin Niks...' Anjali was to say something but Nikki interrupt her... 'Lekin Kiya Bhabhs... Aap jaanti nehi ho... Bhai mujhe bohot irritate karta hai... Ab meri baari hai... So why would I will let the chance go...' Nikki said dailing Armaan number...

She put in to the speaker and asked others to keep quite while she do the talking... From the other end of the phone they heard an irritated Armaan asking why she call again...
'Oopss.. Sorry Bhai.. Lagta hai maine aapko galat time par phone ki...' Nikki said all acting when she hear Armaan irritated reply...
'Haan Niks... U always call me when I am middle of somthing...' Came Armaan shameless answer and they heard from background Riddhima saying his name...
'OMG Bhai...
Aap Riddhima bhabhi koh hum sabse dur legaya aur ab kiya kar rahi ho uski saat... Mujhe toh Dad aur Mom koh batana padega ab...' Nikki said while Sapna and Muskaan were holding their laugh...

Anjali wasn't liking the way Armaan shamelessly said he was middle of something thinking wht they must be doing... Its not she don't trust Riddhima and Armaan... She do but she dont want anything happen that later they regret... Specially Riddhima after wht happen in her life...
She was happy for her sister but she knows Riddhima wasn't out of her past... Anjali know Armaan was a good guy and would never do anything that make Riddhima sad or hurt her... Becox she had seen the love in his eyes for her princess...

Anjali came back to the world when she heard Nikki saying, 'Kuch toh sharam karo bhai... Meri mobile speaker par hai aur Muskaan aur Sapna bhi yehi hai... And Anjy Bhabhs too... Kamse kam uske saamne aise besharami wali baat toh mat karo...'
'Wht.. Tu...' Armaan mouth got shut hearing this...
Soon Muskaan and Sapna were laughing their heads out with Nikki...
'Yaar Nikki tum kyun Armaan aur Ridzy koh disturb kar rahi hai... Let them enjoy the day and lets go and have dinner...' Anjali said as she didn't hear wht was Armaan reply to Nikki as she was busy thinking about Riddhima and Armaan relation...
'Main tujhe chodunga nehi Niks... Ghar aake tujhe dekhlunga...' Armaan said...
'Bhai.. Pehle Riddhima bhabhi koh dekhlo.. Mujhe toh kabhi bhi dekh sakti ho... Waise kitni der tak ho Riddhima bhabhi ki saat... I mean ur to be mother in law must have given u a time na...' Nikki said teasing to them...
'Tujhe usse kiya hai Niks... Pehle kitni baar mujhe phone karke disturb kar chuke ho tum... Meri ma please mujhe phone mat karna...' Saying this Armaan cut...

When Armaan cut the call, Nikki also started to laugh more...
Soon they were sitting near the dinning area and Muskaan narrate wht happen in the kitchen few mins ago to the boys who were in the dark why the girls were laughing so loudly..
When Muskaan finished telling them, even they laugh with them... Atul send a msg to Armaan asking 'Whts up bhai...' But no reply came...



BACK TO AR...


Cutting the call Armaan turn to see Riddhima's cheeks red... She was looking everywhere else but not to him...
'umm... hum bhi dinner kare..' Armaan ask taking Riddhima hand in his and moving to the table which was placed there with dinner ready for two...

Soon both had dinner and the silent were eating Armaan... Soon he started a conversation about their new project...
Riddhima was like 'is he serious... As he was talking about work at a night like this...But soon even she was involve in the talking and slowly they started talking about their personal life leaving their professional talks...

It was 11 30 by the time they decided to go back to home... Armaan didn't wanna let go of Riddhima but Riddhima keep reminding him the warning mom gave to him...
'This is relly not done na Riddhima...
I mean we r old enough and we should get more time to spend with each other...' Armaan was complainting from the moment they sat in the car to return back to home...

Like Armaan, even Riddhima don't want to go back to home.. It seems so they haven't spend enough time with each other...
'Lekin Armaan...
She is right in her view... She is a mother...
When u become a father, u will come to know why every mother says this... I am sure Dad also wouldn't like me to roam around u late in night... We just got in to the relation Armaan...' Riddhima said looking at Armaan who was looking ahead to the dead road...
'Jaanta hoon Riddhima...
But...' Armaan was cut by Riddhima...
'Armaan...
Its not that our parents don't aprove our relation... Soon we will get engage and the whole will world knows we r mean to be together...
Humhe Apni parents ki view of point se dekhna chahiyeh...'

Armaan didn't had anything more to say... Becox he knows Riddhima is right to think like that... No parents would send their daughter with a stranger... Not till they r engage or married...
They always would think about the society... Wht they might think about them and their family... They r famous to the people and media will always be waiting for anythng to happen so they could spread the rumors around the world...
When Armaan didn't reply to Riddhima, Riddhima knows he agreed with her...
'Waise Armaan...
Tum itna bekaraar kyun ho... Hum toh roz mil sakte hai...
We work together right... and hum zyada time ek dusre ke saat rehti hoon...' Riddhima said while a naughty smile took over her lips...

When Armaan hears it, he look at her for a second but missed the naughty smile that form in her lips and the spark twinkle in her eyes as he look back to the road before they met any accident...
'Haan woh toh hai...
But ab mujhe nehi lagta hai kaam par zyada concentrate kar paenge ya nehi...
Pehle bhi jab mujhe pata chala I had fallen in love with u, tab bhi mujhe bohot mushkil ho raha hai kaam par dhyan rakhna...
Ab toh tumne haan bhi kardiya... Ab mera kiya hoga...' Armaan said teasing her...
'Ab kuch nehi hone wala Armaan...
Bas puri zindagi mere saat rehna padega...' Riddhima said while blush took over her cheeks...
'Oye hoyye...
Woh toh jarur chahunga...' Armaan said smiling with his million dollar smile..

Soon they reach to Gupta Mansion...
Armaan came to open door for Riddhima but before he could, Riddhima came out... Armaan stop closed to her as Riddhima was standing near the car with her back hitting the door...
'Jaarahi ho...' Armaan ask taking her hand in his...
'Haan Armaan its only 5mins to 12...' Riddhima said looking at him when he hold her hand pulling it closed to his chest squeezing it...

Soon their eyes met and they were taken to another world... Both were lost in each other and in their own land for sometimes...
Armaan wrist clock beep showing it was 1min to 12am...
'Happy Valentines Day...' He said kissing her hands which he was holding in his...
'I love u...' It was only Riddhima could manage to say...
Armaan face glow with happiness showing the deep dimple... 'Love u too...' Armaan said and hugs her softly squeezing her in his arms...

'Riddhima...
It was the best day of my life... Thank u sooo much for coming to my life...' Armaan said caring her back...
He move away to look at little tears twinkling in her eyes with a small smile adoring her lips...
Armaan sit on his knee still holding her hands...
'Riddhima...
Will u be my VELANTINE FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE...'

When Riddhima hear this, she couldn't know how much happy she felt...
She always want to know how it feels when someone love u more then anything in the world...
Only she didn't know that someone was Armaan Mallik and today she was in the top of the world hearing all this and seeing the care and deep pure unlimited love in his eyes for her...
'Riddhima, Will you...' Armaan ask again when she didn't reply him... He squeeze her hands to bring her back to the world...

Riddhima didn't need to say anything to tell him she was all his... She bend down cupping his face in her hand and place a soft kiss on his forehead...
'Riddhima Gupta ne answer nehi diya abhi tak mere sawal ka...' Armaan said when he felt Riddhima moving her self to look at him...
'Armaan...
I don't think I should say anything... My action always give u the answer right... But if u really wanna hear it from my mouth...
Yes... I will be for Velantine for the rest of my life...'

Armaan felt so much happy to hear this, soon Riddhima was crashing on his arms... Riddhima equally respond his touch and soon she felt Armaan hot breath caring near her neck nape as he was hiding his face on her hair near her neck...
Armaan hands were moving slowly around her waist pulling her closer than they were while Riddhima's hand were on his back caring...
'Armaan...' Riddhima call his name as he didn't come out from the hug or leave her...
'hmmm...' It was the only answer he could give as he was so lost on her and their new world...
'Let me go... Mamma will be waiting...' Riddhima said not waiting to let go off Armaan but still know she had to...

Armaan who was lost in his world, came out from the hug just to look at her eyes...
'Jaane se pehle ek kiss...' Armaan was cut by Riddhima... 'Armaan...' Red color rise in her cheeks turning to to red... Riddhima felt the burn on her cheeks as the color change becox of the shameless demand of Armaan...
Like always she call his name, lowering her eyelish as she was too ambrass to meet her eyes with his... She know soon she would be drown to it if she look at his blue ones...
'Please...' Armaan said and Riddhima nod her head as a no...

'Yeh kiya baat huvi... Tum ladkiya aise kyun hoti ho... Jab sharafse maangte ho toh dete nehi ho...
Hum ladk kon koh chahiyeh toh nehi dete ho...
Lekin khud chahiyeh ho toh bina poochke humse, le leti ho...
This is so unfair... Nehi??' Armaan said leaving her when he saw Riddhima nodding as a no for his request..
Riddhima smile hearing his non stop bander...
'Armaan...
Hum ladkiya aise hi hai..' Riddhima said looking away from him...
'But kyun Riddhima...' Armaan asked while folding his arms on his chest...
'Kyunki hum log tum log jaise besharam nehi hoon na...Issiliye aise demand tum logo se saamne nehi rakhte...' Riddhima said moving to go inside...

'Really...' Armaan asking thinking about wht just Riddhima said...
'Yes Armaan.. Don't waste ur time thinking over it in front of my house in the middle of the night Armaan...
Go home and think over it... Goodnight...' Riddhima said as she got the chance to except from Armaan hold...
But she didn't only know Armaan could pick up the point too fast then she expected...
'That's why u kiss me last night after the confession?'

Riddhima froze on her step when she heard Armaan reply... She really wasn't expecting him to take the matter on this situation...
Before Riddhima could come back to her sense, Armaan came and block her way...
'Ab chup kyun ho Riddhima Gupta... Maine kuch galat kaha...' Armaan ask looking at her face which was red due to the ambrass of getting court red handed...
'Armaan, bohot der hogayi... Mujhe lagta hai abhi tumhe jaana chahiyeh...' Riddhima said not looking at him...
'Accept the fact that I am right Miss Gupta... Then I would let u go for the night...' Armaan said while a naughty smile played on his lips...

Riddhima look at him knowing wht he means by that and smiling she move closed to him... Armaan was taken back by her sudden closeness and was soon lost in her charm...
Riddhima move her lips closed to his ear as her breath kiss his cheek... Armaan eyes were closed automatically when he felt Riddhima breath on his cheek...
'Not so fast Mr.Mallik...
Ms.Gupta wouldn't agree with u so easily... So better luck next time...' Riddhima said and soon run from there for Armaan could get hold of her...

Armaan who was lost in her charm came back when he felt Riddhima move away and run laughing how easily she could divert his mind with her charm...
When Armaan mind work and got the meaning of wht Riddhima said he turn only to see Riddhima reach near the door...
She turn around and wave to him bye and wink before she disappear behind the door...
'I so Love her God...' Armaan said looking at the sky before leaving to go home after the special day he spend with his love of life... HIS RIDDHIMA...


WITH LOVE
