Part 348:**Muhabbat Ki Raahon Me**

PART 348:

Armaan drove the car upto Ridhimaa's house. It was nearing 11:45 p.m.

Ridhimaa: (nervously) Papa daantenge to nahi na?

Armaan: (afraid himself) Dont worry basket... kuch nahi hoga. Main hoon na tumhare saath...

They rang the bell. Shashank opened the door, looking grave. Armaan tried to hide behind Ridhimaa.

Ridhimaa: Armaan!

Shashank: Armaan... ye tum kya kar rahe ho?

Armaan: (emerging) Wo main... kuch nahi...

Shashank: Mujhse chhup rahe the?

Armaan: Nahi to... main aapse kyun chhupunga? Aap to mere Daddy hain.

Shashank: Daddy hoon to iska matlab main tumhe daantunga nahi?

Armaan: Wo... main... galti meri hai...

Shashank: Pehle tum dono andar aao...

They both enter inside. Shashank took them to the living room, where the others were sitting, waiting for them.

Anjali: Arrey... tum dono ko kya hua? Itna darre hue kyun lag rahe ho?

Armaan glanced at Shashank, who was now sitting comfortably, on the sofa.

Shashank: (to Tamanna) I'm good na?

Tamanna: You're superb uncle!

They both gave each other a high five.

Armaan: (sulking) To ye sab... naatak tha Daddy?

Shashank: Naatak nahi tha... acting thi Armaan.

Tamanna: Uncle tumhare Daddy kabse ban gaye Ammy?

Armaan: Tumse matlab? Tumne bhi mujhse jhooth bola tha na Ridhimaa ki tabiyat ke baare me?

Tamanna: Maine to kaha tha ki Ridz ki tabiyat... tum meri baat sune bina hi bhaag gaye to main kya karun?

Armaan: Tumhe pata tha main aise hi react karunga... isiliye tumne... khair chhodo.

Matthew: How was your date?

Armaan and Ridhimaa looked at each other. Ridhimaa blushed while Armaan felt himself going red too.

Armaan: Good.

Padma: Sirf good?

Ridhimaa: Mom... mujhe neend aa rahi hai...

Nani: Tum dono ne khaana khaaya?

Ridhimaa: Kha liya nani. Main jaun?

Armaan: Hume bhi chalna chahiye. Ridhimaa... mera guitar leti aana. Guest room me rakha hai.

When Ridhimaa came back, she found Armaan sitting in the living room, chatting with the others. She glanced at the wall clock. It was 12 o'clock.

Ridhimaa: (holding out the guitar) Tumhara guitar...

Armaan: (taking the guitar) Thanks Basket...

Tamanna: Ridz... tum bhi baitho na... baatein karo humare saath...

Ridhimaa sat down beside Tamanna.

Tamanna: Ammy to bata nahi raha... tum hi bata do... Ammy tumhe date par kahaan lekar gaya tha?

Ridhimaa looked at Armaan who shook his head.

Ridhimaa: Armaan... wo... wo...

Armaan: Maine kaha na Tammy... kal bata dunga.

Tamanna: Fine... mat batao.

Ridhimaa: Armaan... tumhe yaad hai... ek din tumne mujhe challenge kiya tha gaane ke liye...

Armaan: Haan to?

Ridhimaa: To maine ga diya tha. Tum challenge haar gaye the. Ab shart poori karo.

Armaan: (knowing what was on Ridhimaa's mind) Kaun sa challenge? Kaun si shart? Bahut raat ho gayi hai... tumhe jaakar so jaana chahiye... Good night!

Anjali: Oh haan! Mujhe yaad aaya. Ridzi ka i-pod toot gaya tha. To Armaan ne kaha tha ki wo uska i-pod banega.

Tamanna: Yes... I too remember!

Ridhimaa: (smugly) Dekha... ab Armaan ko gaana gaana padega... chalo... start karo...

Armaan: Abhi?

Ridhimaa: Haan... abhi isi waqt. Gao.

Armaan: Nahi... mujhe nahi...

Ridhimaa: (angrily) Armaan tum gaate ho ya...

Armaan: Tum har baat me itna darrati kyun ho?

Ridhimaa: Bina darraye koi kaam karte ho?

Armaan: Karta hoon na... tumse pyar...

Shashank: Armaan romance baad me kar lena... pehle gaana gao...

Armaan: Lekin Daddy...

Padma, Nani: (together) Ga do na... Armaan!

Matthew: Yes Ammy...

Ridhimaa: Armaan... please!

Armaan: OK fine... ga raha hoon...

Armaan started singing the song 'Every night in my dreams' but stopped.

Ridhimaa: Kya hua?

Armaan: Is music par to dance hona chahiye. Kyun Tammy?

Tamanna: Haan... bilkul...

She stood up. Anjali switched off the lights. Armaan stood up and came before Ridhimaa.

Armaan: May I have the pleasure of this dance?

Ridhimaa gave her hand into his. Armaan pulled her closer to his chest and put his arms around her waist and started the song afresh.

Armaan: (singing)
Every night in my dreams...
I see you, I feel you...
That is how I know you go on...
Far across the distance...
And spaces between us...
You have come to show you go on...
Near, far, wherever you are...
I believe that the heart does go on...
Once more you open the door...

Tamanna and Matthew and Shashank and Padma too came onto dance. Anjali and Nani watched them excitedly.

And you're here in my heart...
And my heart will go on and on...
Love can touch us one time...
And last for a lifetime...
And never let go till we're gone...
Love was when I loved you...
One true time I hold to...
In my life we'll always go on...

The others grew tired and left the dance area. Now only Armaan and Ridhimaa were dancing. Both were gazing into each other's eyes. Armaan was singing just for Ridhimaa. Nothing else in the whole world mattered for them.

You're here, there's nothing I fear...
And I know that my heart will go on...
We'll stay forever this way...
You are safe in my heart...
And my heart will go on and on...

The song finished. Armaan kept humming. Seeing both mesmerized, Shashank signaled Anjali, who clapped hard.

Anjali: Superb!

Armaan and Ridhimaa jumped apart. The others smiled.

Shashank: Ho gaya dance?

Armaan did not answer.

Armaan: Now I think hume chalna chahiye. Goodnight. Chalein?

Tamanna: Hum dono to kab se tum dono ka dance khatam hone ka wait kar rahe the. Chalo. Bye...

They all bid goodbye and went away. Ridhimaa was about to turn to go to her room when her mobile beeped. It was Armaan's message: I Love You.

Ridhimaa blushed. Seeing her blushing, Anjali peeped into her mobile.

Anjali: Oho! To I love you message aaya hai? Kisne bheja? Any guesses?

Ridhimaa ran away from there, leaving Anjali, Nani, Padma and Shashank smiling at their Ridhimaa's luck to have got Armaan as her soul mate.
