Part 8:My Wish Come True


 Part 8

Ridhhima came out of the closet after changing into her night dress nd was brushing her hair thinking of Ryan, when she felt something cold on her neck.. She looked into the mirror to find Armaan standing behind her nd he was holding a very beautiful Diamond necklace around her neck..

""Kaisa hai..?"" Armaan asked with a smile..
""Bohot achha hai.. lekin aap yeh kyun.."" She asked but was cut in between by him ""Tumhare liye.. aur kuch sarees bhi hain.. mujhe pata nai thha ki tumhe kaunsa style ya colour pasand hai sarees mein to mujhe jo achhi lagi vo le ayaa.."" he said cutely.. Ridhhima smiled at his innocent face nd said ""Armaan.. yeh bohot achha hai lekin itna mehenga necklace aap kyun..?""
She was quietened by his finger on her lips.. She felt a current sent down her spine.. She was looking into his eyes while his fingers were doing the lock of the necklace at the nape of her neck.. She wanted to but wasn't able to take her eyes away from his deep blue eyes which had nothing but love nd happiness in them..

He kissed her head nd took a step back with his hands crossed against his chest.. While she came back to the World when she felt him kiss her head..  ""Pehle yeh necklace sirf achha lag raha thha.. ab dekho zara.. tumhare pehente hi anmol ho gaya.."" he said softly making her blush abit.. he gave a satisfied smile at her blush nd said ""ab yahan aao aur yeh saree dekho.. inn mein se yeh Green vali na tum kal pehen kar chalna.. tum par bohot achhi lagegi..""

Ridhhima shook her head nd smiled at his enthusiasm.. she faced him nd said in an appericiative tone ""aapne aaj pehli baar kisi ladki ke liye akele shopping ki hai na..?"" listening to her he had an unknown smile on his face.. nodding with a sweet smile he thought to himself ""You've started to know me Ridhhima.. you've started to read my expressions.. finally my one more step towards ur Heart..""


Next Morning Ridhhima was in the kitchen cleaning it nd putting things in place.. Armaan was already gone off to office as he will have to rush home early for the Reception party.. coming out of the kitchen, Ridhhima saw Ryan crawling around the lounge searching for her..

She quickly picked him up nd comforted him.. he clutched her tight as if she was saving him from something.. ""Hey buddy.. kya hua.. subah subah aap itna darr kyun rahe ho.. koi bura sapna dekha mere baby ne.."" she said in a very sweet voice nd kissed is head soothing him..
Soon enough with her sweet caress nd loving kisses Ryan was calmed down.. Ridhhima for once wasn't able to understand what was wrong with him.. He seemed really disturbed.. smiling at Ryan who was absolutely normal now, she concluded that he might have got scared finding himself all alone in his room.. as everyday either Bi or Ridhhima
would wake him up nd be with him all day long..

Ridhhima put him down on the carpet with afew of his favourite toys nd again went to the kitchen to get him something to eat.. She was making him some custard in the kitchen.. ""aap yahan khelo buddy.. main abhi aayi hmm..""

While on the otherhand Ryan saw an old man nd old women whom he had seen before entering the house.. he started crawling away when he saw the lady approaching him with not so friendly face..
Ridhhima came rushing out of the kitchen when she heard Ryan wailing..

""Ryan.. kya hua baby.."" she said while coming out nd froze looking at Shashank nd Padma standing in front of her with wailing Ryan in her arms trying to reach Ridhhima.. Ridhhima almost snatched Ryan away from Padma nd calmed him down.. she wanted to ask 'what were they doing here'.. but had no courage to look at them.. she was always scared of them, especially Padma who would not even think for a second before harming Ridhhima in any way..

Looking at Ryan clinging to Ridhhima, Padma fumed.. She had thought Ryan to be an obstacle in between Armaan nd Ridhhima but here Ryan was with Ridhhima as if they know eachother for ages.. ""shaadi ke baad bhi koi fark nai hai na tumhari zindagi mein.. uss ghar mein bhi tum akeli aur sirf naukaron ki tarah rehti thhi.. aur yahan bhi tum apne pati ke bete ki dekh bhaal kar rahi ho.."" Padma said taunting Ridhhima..

Ridhhima smiled at Padma nd muttered some courage to say as it was about Armaan nd Ryan now.. ""Fark hai Badi Ma.. aap bhool rahi hain ki 'Mere Pati ka beta' mera bhi beta hua.. aur jaise aapne Anjali Di ki dekh bhaal ki, main Ryan ki kar rahi hoon.. iss parivar se mujhe koi shikayat nai hai Badi Ma.. kyunki unhone aapko shaadi se pehle Ryan ke baare mein bataya thha.. aur Armaan bhi bohot understanding hain.. lekin shayad aapki nafrat mere liye itni zyada thhi ki.."" Ridhhima said in a proud yet sad tone..

Padma was shocked at her reply while Shashank came forward towards Ridhhima making her step back abit with Ryan protectively in her arms..
""tumhari bakwaas sunne ka time nai hai mere paas.. yeh lo kuch paise hain.. Jai ne kaha ki tumhari aaj ki dress humari taraf se honi chahiye.. khud jakar le anaa.. tumse kitni bhi nafrat karle lekin Jai aur Tara ke saath ka rishta to nibhana hi padega..""

As they turned Ridhhima said ""Bade papa.. inn paison ki zaroorat nai hai.. kal Armaan mere liye aaj shaam ko pehene ke liye saari le aaye thhe.. main vahi saree pehenungi, varna unhe bura lagega..""

Shashank's face hardened at this nd he turned to give Ridhhima daring look.. Ryan looked at angry Shashank nd Padma n then at sobbered Ridhhima.. He shoved his fist in air angrily ""Eehhh.. hhuuppp..!"" as if whacking them nd protecting Ridhhima from them..

Ridhhima quickly hid his face in her palm nd turned to go in the room keeping the money on the table nearby before either of them says something nd scares Ryan for what he did..


Ridhhima sat in her room thinking of what she said to her Uncle nd Aunty.. She kept thinking of it till finally Ryan threw a teddy at her.. She saw him pouting at her as since morning she had not spent that quality time with him.. most of the time she was thinking or he was sleeping.. Se mentally kicked herself..""Kya hua agar maine unse vo sab kaha to.. unhe lagta hai ki yahan bhi sab unke jaise hain.. lekin aisa nai hai.. aur khaaskar Armaan.. vo to itne achhe hain.. aur vaise bhi main maanon ya nai, Ryan ab sabke liye mera hi beta hai..""

""Guddoo.."" Ryan said abit angrily.

Ridhhima smiled at him nd took him in her arms kissing him cuddling him, cooling all his anger.. ""Sorry buddy.. ab aapke saath hi khelungi.. bas khush.."" Ryan smiled at her tone while she continued ""Hmm.. kitna gussa ataa hai aapko baby.. mujhe to pata hi nai thha ki mera buddy mere liye gussa bhi ho sakta hai.. I Love You Buddy.."" she kissed his tiny nose making him giggle.. ""lubhh ooo..'

They played for hours till Armaan was back home.. Ridhhima put his favourite hand puppets in her hand nd made imaginary stories sometimes telling them with a serious face making him concentrate nd sometimes kissing him nd tickling him with the fur puppet making him roll in laughter..

How she loved to see him like that. His giggles nd the way he raise his eyebrows n pout when she says something serious.. every single thing about him would make her want to be more nd more with him.. she put him to sleep after afew more stories nd shifted him to his room as he would get disturbed when they would change to go..

She kept caressing him nd kissing him while he was asleep.. The sense of protection is all a baby wants to sleep.. Ryan fisted the edge of her saree nd slept like an Angel.. Her Angel.. Her Lil Sunshine Angel..


""Ridhhima.. mom pooche to keh dena ki maine zidd karke tumhe yeh saree pehne ko kaha.. mujhe pata hai ki Padma Aunty aur Uncle ne tumhari aaj ki dress nai bheji hogi.."" he said in a low tone to which she smiled saying ""vo aaye thhe Armaan.. dress nai paise lekar.. lekin maine manaa kar diya.. aap kal mere liye yeh saree laye thhe aur main aaj yahi pehen kar jana chahti thhi..""

Armaan smiled happily at her simplicity nd innocence.. though he also wanted her to wear what he had got for her but he didn't say it coz he thought she might feel bad or bound to his words..

Ridhhima got ready in the green saree nd the jewellery Armaan bought for her nd Armaan got ready in this :

As they moved to the venue Ridhhima asked ""Armaan ek baat poochhon..?""

He gave his perfect smile nd nodded.. ""Aap Ryan ko apne saath kyun nai le jaate..? I mean.. Aap Ryan ko kabhi apne saath gatherings mein kyun nai le jaate.."" she asked hesitantly praying that his mood doesn't get bad as it was like when she asked about Tiya..

Armaan seemed surprised.. he wasn't expecting it to about Ryan but he respected her thought nd answered calmly this time.. ""Ridhhima vo abhi bohot chota hai.. main to usse har waqt saath liye nai ghoom sakta na.. aur agar ab main usse kahin lekar jata hoon to sabke samne tumhe Ryan ko samhaalna padega.. vaise bhi main nai chahta ki koi tumse Ryan ke baare mein sawaal kare aur tumhe dukh ho.."" While all Ridhhima could do was thinking how thoughtful nd understanding Armaan is towards her.. ""Pata nai uss waqt haalaat kaise honge jab aapko pata chalega ki mujhe Ryan ke saath rehna achha lagta hai aur maine yeh baat aapse chupa kar rakhi..""She thought nd prayed for that situation to be a positive aspect of their relationship..


As Armaan nd Ridhhima got down from their car at the venue they were surrounded by the media.. asking them all sort of questions about them getting married secretly nd clicking their pictures.. some of them were congratulating them.. Armaan looked at a little apprehensive Ridhhima nd quickly strode away to the hall taking her hand gently..

The Gupta's almost blasted out of jealousy nd anger when they saw the sort of respect nd attention Ridhhima was getting from Armaan, His Family nd His Friends.. Anjali had heard her mother blabbering how Ridhhima insulted them when they went to Mallik house to give her money saying 'Armaan had got her dress already..'.. She looked at Ridhhima's saree nd jewellery nd made a face.. She so wanted to go to Ridhhima nd say something to her but Shashank had asked her to behave infront of Malliks as they can't lose the reputation nd link they have with Malliks..

""Bhabhi you look really pretty today.."" Rahul complimented as Rahul, Muskaan nd Atul went on stage to congratulate them.. Ridhhima smiled nd thanked him while Muskaan stomped her heel sandals on his foot retorting ""Oye tune aaj tak mujhe to kabhi koi compliment nai diya.. tu na hai hi aisa.. meri koi value hi nai hai.. bas auron ki tareef karwa lo tujhse.. dekh na isse Armaan..!!""

Armaan smiled devilishly at Rahul nd sympathised with Muskaan adding fuel to fire.. ""Haan Muski.. yeh Rahul hai hi aisa.. tu dukhi matt ho yar.. main hoon na tera sacha dost.. isse kal lekar aaiyo milkar maarenge isse.."" While Ridhhima was amused at what they have been doing.. she had not seen them often so she had not even witnessed any of RM's fights aswell.. as the Trio was busy Fuming nd fueling, Atul went to Ridhhima.. ""aap pareshan matt ho bhabhi.. yeh inka roz ka drama hai.. jab tak yeh log ladte nai aur Armaan muski ko bhadkata nai inn logon ko neend nai aati..""

""Lekin Armaan ko unn dono ke beech ki ladai badhani nai chahiye na.."" Ridhhima asked Atul completely unknown to their actual natures.. Atul smiled at her nd said ""arre kuch nai hoga bhabhi.. Abhi 2 minute mein yeh dono saath pyaar se baatein kar rahe honge.."" But Ridhhima didn't listen to Atul nd patted Armaan's shoulder, as Armaan shifted his attention to her she said abit irritatingly ""Armaan aap inki ladai kyun badha rahe hain..?""

""Arre but what did I do..? yeh aise hi ladte hain Ridhhima.."" Armaan asked in disbelief.. ""Oh.. Hello..!! lad kaun raha hai..?"" Muskaan asked in an interesting tone as if really asking for it.. Armaan giggled nd cocked his eyebrow at Ridhhima ""See.. I told you.. itne pyar se ladte hain ki thodi der baad poocho ki kyun lad rahe thhe to vo bhi yaad nai rehta.."" This time Ridhhima joined Armaan nd giggled while RM nd Atul joined in too..

After a while when Armaan nd Ridhhima were off stage meeting the guests, out of the blue Rahul announced ""Ladies n Gentlemen.. ab bohot itzaar aur request ke baad.. Armaan, bhabhi ke liye ek gaana gayega..""

While Ridhhima who was busy greeting the guests with Tara, almost got shocked at this.. Soon all the lights were dimmed nd there was just one spot light that was on Armaan who was standing on the stage with Rahul having a guitar..

[He kept looking at Ridhhima while he started singing.. lost in those emerald green eyes he started humming for the tune..(Zindagi luta doon from aashiq banaya aapne)]

zindagi luta doon…. ek baar jo muskurade..
kuch nahi mera sab kuch, teri ek hasi ke aage..
aakhon ki yeh nami..tere gam yeh sabhi,
aajaaa de de mujhe meri Jaan..
sach kahunga main.. tera saath dunga main..
koi mushkil ho.. sab kuch sahunga main..
Raaste faasle keh rahe sun bhi le..
ab saath chalunga main..
ab saath chalunga main..
aa tujhe pyaar dun .. zindagi vaar dun..
tere kadmon mein rakh dun jahaan..

[He walked to her nd stood a step away from her.. still gazing at her nd singing.. not caring about what others are thinking or doing..]

zindagi luta doon…. ek baar jo muskura de..
kuch nahi mera sab kuch, teri ek hasi ke aage..
aakhon ki yeh nami..tere gam yeh sabhi,
aajaa de de mujhe meri Jaan..

Armaan was trying to read her face when he ended the song.. Ridhhima had afew tears brimming in her eyes.. for the very first time in her life had she felt such intensity of love for her in anyone's eyes after her parents' death.. she looked into his eyes but soon her trance broke due to the applause that filled the hall..

She stepped afew steps away thinking of Armaan when she unknowingly came face to face with Anjali.. Anjali caught her arm angrily nd almost barked at her ""yeh tumhari jeet nai hai.. main usse apna bana lungi ek din.. vo bhi tumse nafart karega.. coz you're a back stabber.. I hate You..""

Ridhhima couldn't control any longer nd tears started flowing from her eyes.. She found Armaan coming to her nd ran out of the hall.. Armaan saw her in tears nd Anjali smiling at her.. He gave anjali a daring look as if he would kill her next moment n followed Ridhhima out of the hall keeping out of anyone's sight.. He found her sobbing in the garden outside..

Ridhhima stopped when she felt a hand on her shoulder.. as the person came in front of her she saw It was Armaan looking at her all the concern.. HE cupped her face nd nodded in NO.. She just hugged him tight nd got into louder nd harder sobs.. While he hugged her nd soothed her till she was fine..

When her sobs subsided.. He parted the hug nd cleared her tears lovingly..

""yeh aakhri baar in ankhon mein ansoon aaye hain.. aaj ke baad sirf khushi aur muskurahat hogi.. yeh mera vaada hai.. main unn logon ko humare paas hi nai aane dunga jinhone aaj tumhe inta dukh diya hai..""
""Promise..?"" she asked innocently just as Ryan sometimes needs assurance..

""Pakka Promise.. lekin ek shart hai.. tum mujhse ab koi problem nai chupaogi.. Na tumhare Uncle, Aunty ke baare mein aur nahi Anjali ke..""

""aap jante hain Di ki feelings..?"" she asked timidly..

""Haan.. jab tumhe fever thha to tum behoshi mein vo sab bol rahi thhi.."" he said truthfully while she bowed her head down.. ""mujhse dosti karogi..? Tiya ke baad ek dost ki bohot zaroorat mehsus hoti hai.. aur vo kami sirf tum ho puri kar sakti ho.."" She looked at him confused.. but still nodded nd hugged him yet again out of happiness..
""Thank You Armaan.. aap bohot achhe hain..""

He smiled nd hugged her back this time, happily.. coz he knew she wouldn't push him away this time like she did outside Vivek's place.. He had one of his best smiles at the moment.. ""Thanks to you Ridhhima.. mujh par bharosa karne ke liye.. ab bas dekhti jao ki main kaise har kadam par unn logon ko tumse dur rakhta hoon jo tumhe dukh pohochate hain.."" he thought..

""waise agar tum aise mujhe hug karke khadi rahi to tumhe mujhse pyar ho jayega.."" Armaan quipped saying it to lighten the moment nd giggled at Ridhhima sudden withdrawal.. Ridhhima looked at him in disbelief while he chuckled..

""aise matt dekho yar.. I know I have that effect on women.."" he flaunted making Ridhhima irritated abit nd she left in a huff, smiling to herself when she was sure he wasn't able to see her..
