part 27 : An Arranged Love Marriage


His sentence was left hanging midway as he saw blood dripping from her hand.A gasp escaped his mouth as he saw her hand and found a deep cut.
Jo: Sir vo.....vo pata nahi ma’am ka hath.....


A: What the...... go and get the first aid box now!

Joseph and Sophia ran out to get the first aid box while Rahul stood at the door watching the duo.
Ra: Tum theek toh ho Jerry;aise kaise chot lag gayi tumhe?

A: Kitni baar kaha hai;dhyaan rakha karo kaam karte waqt par koi faayda nahi.....kitna bada cut hai; kya kar kya rahi thi tum?

Rahul saw that Armaan was there to take care of things so he thought of leaving them alone.He tried to hold her hand but she closed her fist keeping it to herself.

That made him look up at her and he instantly understood that the cut wasn’t her unintentional carelessness!
Just then Sophia came back with the first aid box.

So: Aaiye madam main dressing kar deti hu aapki. Dekhiye kitna khoon.....

But before anybody could say anything he took the box out of Sophia’s hands.
A: Aap jaiye main dekh lunga!Jaakar room ki cleaning kar dijiye.

They both instantly left as per his orders and Armaan took her towards the sink to wash the wound.

He dipped the cotton and was about to clean her wound but she again pulled the hand out of his grip and turned away to go.Her stubbornness got the better of him as he was already not in his best moods!

He dragged her back making her bang into his chest;that is when he had a closer look at her for the first time since morning.

Rahul was right; his words always were too impactful for her; and her face was portraying that perfectly.
Her puffed eyes; pale face;cheeks having some dried tears; she looked devastated.And that was when he was here; what would she be like after he would be back?

2 days of his absence; pure agony would have made her vulnerable!
A: Jaha ho vahi khadi raho; let me.....

R: Mujhe dressing nahi karvani!

She moved out of his grip closing her fist tighter.He knew that must have hurt; but her face didn’t show a line of pain.Aap jaiye....aapko der ho jaayegi flight pakadne main!

What was this girl really?How was he supposed to be angry on her?

This was so unfair; everytime she did such stupid acts but then the tears and her innocence made him simply forgive her.But this time he wouldn’t let that happen. She had to understand that she was wrong and she couldn’t always get away with everything!

He simply grabbed her waist paying no heed to her retorts and placed her on the counter behind.
He again made an effort to clean her wound but this time she just whisked her hand away and got down the counter pushing him aside.

Maine kaha na mujhe dressing nahi karwani; aap jaiye Rahul aapka intezaar kar raha hoga. She just walked away leaving him standing like a statue still holding the cotton in his hand.

He walked out and found her going up to their room.He instantly followed her and holding her hand took her inside the room and pinned her to the door shutting it behind!But this time she wasn’t scared; his moves didn’t seem aggressive. He looked sober; while his hold on her was polite too.  His hoarse voice told her that he wasn’t here for another fight.Riddhima tum chahti kya ho?Look up at me!

She ignored his words and kept looking everywhere but him.Tumhe lagta hai tum jo chaogi vo karogi aur main kuch nahi kahunga!Chup chap dekhta rahunga?Ek toh jaan bujhkar apne haath main ye chot lagvai aur abYe kaisi jid hai; mujhe dressing kyu nahi karne de rahi tum?

R: Aap mujhe aapke haath ki dressing karne dijiye fir main dressing ke liye mana nahi karungi!

He shut his eyes at her demand and shook his head.Agar tumhe lagta hai isse tumhe maafi mil........

R: Maine aapse maafi nahi maangi; sirf dressing ki baat ki hai!

He looked at her pale face and then at her hand which was full of blood; sighing hard he finally said;
Theek hai; par pehle mujhe dressing karne do; tumhare haath se bohot khoon nikal raha hai! And no more arguments about this!

She did not bother arguing anyways;as she was okay as far as he was ready to let her treat his hand.
He was draping the bandage around her hand wondering about what Rahul had said.He was right;talking to Riddhima was important.Beacause the consequences; otherwise; scared him!

Yahi chahta hai na tu?Vo yaha do din baithe aur roti rahe; khud ko kosti rahe;good na; do din baad jab lautega toh uski haalat dekhne jaisi hogi nahi!Ro kar thak chuki hogi; theek se khana nahi khaya hoga;so nahi payi hogi; aur khud par saari narajgi nikalegi so alag;afterall teri hi biwi hai na!Dekh paayega use aisi haalat main?

Rahul’s words kept ringing in his mind.He finished draping the bandage and looked up at her. To his surprise he found her staring back at him; but unlike every other time she did not bother looking away!

She took his hand and started applying the ointment when finally he spoke;Why Riddhima?How could you?
Itna bada jhut bolne ki kya jarurat thi!

She went all quiet as he questioned her deed.She had nothing left to say.

He held her chin and made her look up at him;Tum meri Riddhima nahi ho!Ho hi nahi sakti!Meri Riddhima toh bohot masum; aur dil se bohot sacchi hai!Vo kabhi mujhse aisa jhut nahi bolegi!Aisa kuch karegi gi nahi jisse mujhe takleef pohche!

Main kuch nahi jaanta; mujhe meri Riddhima vapas chahiye. Use kahi se bhi dhund lao; kuch bhi karo; par mujhe meri Riddhima vapas chahiye.

Poore do din hai tumhare paas;jab main lautu; toh main chahta hu mere saamne vo Riddhima khadi ho; jiski aankhon se ye aason aur dard na jhalak rahe ho;balki sirf masumiyat aur sharm ho. Uske hooton par ek pyaari si muskaan ho. Jise main ek baar chu lu toh vo kaanp uthe; jo sirf ek chochlate ki vajah se mujhe apni ek million dollar smile de!Bolo de paogi mujhe vo Riddhima?

She couldn’t take it anymore; after all that happened last night; and the way he had ignored her since then; this was the first communication he was having with her as “her Armaan”!

She instantly hugged him tightly sobbing into his chest. But she never felt his hands coming up to hold her!
Aap jo bologe main karungi; jaise kahoge vaise hi behave karungi; aapki har baat maanungi; jid bhi nahi karungi kisi cheej ke liye.Par aap mujhse aise naaraj hokar mat jaiye please! Aap raat bhar soye nahi hai; itni chot lagi hai aapko; naashta bhi nahi kar rahe hai; aur ab mujhe bina bataye......

She stopped crying and wiping her tears detangled from him.Aapko mera rona bilkul pasand nahi hai; dekhiye main.... main roungi bhi nahi! Par aap aise mujhse chodkar mat jaiye mujhe.....
A: Riddhima!! Main tumhe chodkar kahi nahi jaa raha; na kabhi jaunga!

Ye meri business trip hai; iske liye mujhe jaana hi padega!
He was about to walk away when she held his hand. He turned around and sighed; but as he was about to say something he found her holding her ears in apology.

R: Aap mujhse abhi bhi ghussa hai na; naaraj hai main jaanti hu!
Chahe toh mujhe mariye; saja dijiye par is tarah kabhi meri vajah se khud ko chot mat pohochaiye; main khud ko kabhi maaf nahi kar paungi! Agar meri vajah se aapko aapko kabhi bhi kuch bhi hua toh main jee nahi....

A: Shhh..... chup.....ekdum chup.
He instantly removed her hands from her ears and wiped her glistening tears.

Bohot bolne lagi ho tum aaj kal. Mujhe aisi bakwaas bilkul pasand nahi samjhi!

Dekho.....itni aasani se main maaf toh nahi kar sakta tumhe.....par tumhe aise rota hua chodke bhi nahi ja sakta! Jo bhi hua use bhulaya toh nahi jaa sakta lekin filhaal waqt nahi hai mere paas; mera waqt pe airport pohochna jaruri hai!

Lekin haan Ye baat yaha khatam nahi hoti Riddhima; mujhe jaanna hai ki aakhir tumne jo kiya vo kyu kiya? Par shayad ye waqt theek nahi hai; kyunki filhaal main khud ko sambhal nahi paunga; aur tum mere ghusse ko jhel nahi sakti!

Do din kaam main busy rahunga; toh thoda time hum dono ko mil jaayega to settle things. Toh mere trip ke aane ke baad baat karenge! Aur baat karenge se mera matlab hai; I need YOU to do the talking; I would prefer it that way!

Aur haan in do dino ke baad lautne par mujhe pata chala ki tumne sara waqt rokar gujara hai; ya apne khane peene main; apna khayal rakhne main laparvahi ki hai; toh tum ye bhul hi jao ki main tumse KISI BHI barein main baat karna chahunga!

I hope tum meri baat ko sirf sun nahi samajh bhi rahi ho!
She nodded her head like an obedient kid and he finally saw a glimpse of HIS Riddhima; his sweet innocent Riddhima.

He saw her fiddling with her pallu while in some deep thought. He instantly knew she was trying to say something so he thought of ending her dilemma;
A: Hmm....kya hua bolo!

R: Huh.....nahi vo kuch nahi.......

He turned around to go when he felt her again hold his hand.
A: Ab kya hua?

R: Kya main aapko chodne airport aa jau.......please?

A: Nahi......
He replied instantly and saw her face fall seeing him reply negatively. It was as if she was hoping too strong on this one and he had simply crushed it!

A: Mera matlab.....tum bhi raat bhar soyi nahi ho; bohot thaki hui lag rahi ho! You need some rest; toh tum naashta karke thodi der aaram karo.

But her face still showed no difference; so to make her feel a little better he said;
Riddhima tum abhi so jao; main jaise hi vaha pohochunga tumhe phone karunga; theek hai?
Now go get some sleep!

Her face instantly lit up and she finally gave (though) a weak one; but a smile that reached her eyes.He turned around but couldn’t hold his smile seeing her smiling.
