Part 57: We Belong Together

Armaan stood in the fire escape, the doors were open, his left hand on his front pocket....... Armaan looked angry, he was trying to say someone over the phone, rather explain him but the person wasn't listening to him....... Enough was enought Armaan was getting angrier by every second...... why can't people just listen to him he thought,.............


Shashank happened to pass by the same corridor, he didn't know Armaan was inside, Shashank passed throught the fire escape when he heard Armaan shouting loudly....

Armaan: Kaha na main, yeh mere akhri decision hai, main aur kuch nahi sununga........ He blasted over the phone...

Shashank looked curious, He heard the voice and recognised it as Armaan's. Armaan wasn't the one who would get angry, He had never seen him angry except the day when Armaan and Riddhima had confessed their love on Riddhima's engagement day......... Armaan who seemed to be silent and calm was shouting on someone, curiosity took over him and he stood there listening to his one sidded conversation.....

Armaan: Nahi, mujhe usse koi farak nahi padta..... ........ No Andy, yehi mera last decision hai..... Look Andy, main janta hu...... this might be not the correct choice, but i want to do it and i don't find any problem here........Andy this is a right decison, tum jante ho na ki valentine's day par kya hua...... I don't want to deal with such incidents anymore.....Main officially yeh declare karna chahta hu ki Riddhima meri girlfriend hai, aur i don't get it how will it affect my singing career ?...... Noooo Andy thats wrong, Riddhima se main shaadi karna chahta hu, i love her man....... Main yeh Riddhima ke liye yeh karna chahta hu, Main hamare liye karna chahta hu...... and agar isse se mera career ko kuch damage hoga toh i really don't care....... U get that I really don't care....... All i care is my family and Riddhima...... keh dena unhe ki main official statement karke hi rahunga unhe jo karna hai karle...... aur agar fir bhi wo na maane....... toh main khud hi yeh contract cancel karunga........ Main nahi chahta ki media hamein hamesha spy karte rahe, man we do have our own life......To stop at all these rumours...... i have to put an end by declaring about our relationship officially, I love Riddhima way more than anything else in the world......and thats my last decision...... Armaan spoke and cut the call frustrated........ whispering a loud "Dammit".

Shashank had tears in his eyes when he heard that, he heard Armaan climbing the steps, thats when Shashank rushed towards his cabin in a hurry.... Armaan walked away from the fire escape without even realising that Shashank had heard him, Armaan walked towards the locker room, Riddhima was already in the locker room waiting for him, both deposted there lap coat and hospital materials inside the locker, and walked towards the exit of Sanjeevani...... They had taken half day, for 2 reasons firstly they wanted to breath fresh air, and secondly they had to go to Lunavala the next day,........ it was a day off from all the works..........sighting they headed towards the Mallik Mansion....

*----------*----------------------*----------*

In cabin....... Shashank sat on the chairs...... every moment and every second flashed before him, where he had insulted Armaan and Riddhima....... Everything was alive in his brain, his every words, his every actions...... First time in his life Shashank felt that it was all his fault, he had complicated the situations to the worse...... He recalled the moment Riddhima replied back to him for the first time, when Riddhima supported her love, when Riddhima stepped out of Gupta house, with Armaan....... He recalled the day when Armaan and Riddhima stood for each other, the day when Riddhima said that she is getting married to Armaan and that the marriage card will be given it to him first....... she had said it in anger.... but thinking about it his eyes cried, he so wanted to be the first one to be the most happy when it came to his darling daughter's marriage...... Shashank cried now realising that he had lost his precious daughter Riddhima with his ego, she was the same Riddhima who was his life as well, she was the same Riddhima who's tears were unbearable to him, the same Riddhima who never let her father's head down, today when he thought about that he was very guilty, he was the one who gave his daughter so much pain and hurt, ...... Shashank had no idea whether Riddhima would ever forgive him..... He was suddenly afraid of loosing his daughter, maybe he had lost her long back but the realisation struck him now..... 

And Armaan ? before when he thought about Armaan his eyes boiled with anger, he couldn't stand him, but now when he thought about the same Armaan, he felt regret..... he had shouted on Armaan, insulted Armaan to the worse, The same Armaan who was going to say to the world who his lady love was when he knew his career might get affected, just because he didn't wanted Riddhima and him to deal with the media anymore and to keep her safe..... The harsh words Shashank had used on Armaan.....but Armaan never complained inface he took care of Riddhima so well..... Riddhima was staying in Armaan's house itself....... And these weeks in the hospital when Nani was admitted Shashank could see they bond shared between Riddhima and the Mallik's ... they loved her like their own daughter..... Shashank's eyes smiled and cried when he remembered it all..... most of all his eyes cried with regret.......not only he, Armaan and Riddhima suffered but both the families had suffered in all that equally.......Helpless, hopeless tears began to fall freely while his entire face scrunched up with pain and anguish........his heart felt like it was sagging down into an empty pit of darkness...... it felt like he could never get up again specially infront of Riddhima and Armaan..... His face dropped in remose thinking about it...... Wiping away the tears,He stood up happily, Yes, he knew what he had to do..... apologising will not make him small or big, if he had the right to scold at them and he even had the right to ask sorry...... Smiling he went to Dr.Keerthi...... hoping all the way back that Armaan and Riddhima would forgive him........

Shashank walked in Dr.Keerthi's cabin...... Dr.Keerthi was going through a file.....

Dr.Shashank: Dr.Keerthi.... He spoke...... She looked up at him and kept the file aside....

Dr.Keerthi: Sir...? she asked

Dr.Shashank: Woh Dr.Keerthi... Dr. Armaan aur Dr. Riddhima .... he spoke smiling.... while he was cut off by her

Dr.Keerthi: Yes sir....... Kal Dr.Armaan and Dr.Riddhima dono Lunavala orphanage jarahe hai,I have already instructed them about it..... and they ll be leaving in the morning sir... She spoke giving every detail

Dr.Shashank: Hmmm...... he spoke remembering it, his looked sad hearing it..

Dr.Keerthi: Sir, aap ko kuch kaam tha..... she spoke looking at him suprised....

Dr.Shashank: Ha woh, waise Dr.Armaan and Dr.Riddhima kaha hai..... he asked

Dr.Keerthi: Sir, dono ne half day leave liya hai,... she spoke casually while Shashank's face fell hearing it.... Keerthi noticed it but she didn't understand why.

Dr.Shashank: Hmm.. thats all he could say

Dr.keerthi: Sir, aap ko unse kuch kaam tha...?? She asked not understanding a thing

Dr.Shashank: Ha.... Well Nahi......i ll see you around...... He said and walked out........ Dr.Keerthi looked at his retreating back and looked very suprised.... she did notice the smile he had on his face.... something was really unusual she thought and smiled....

Reaching his cabin, Shashank sighted sadly and carried on with his work....

Armaan and Riddhima walked into the house, to see the adorable Varun and Pari chasing each other in the house, the house was already upside down, The sofa's weren't in there place, it was moved, the cushions were on the floor, which brought smile to both of them..... Riya walked in alone with Parag, they noticed the mess too, there mouth fell open,...... The kids were very energetic, they ran from one side to the other, giggling, shouting and screaming to their top voices.... The adults could just smile watching them.... while Riya wanted her kids to be more disciplined.

Varun smiled at Parag and looked at his mother smiling, she glared at him,he felt dejected and held his ears from his hands innocently... Pari followed him anyway, she didn't understand much, she decided to follow her big brother.....

Varun: Sorry Momma..... he spoke gently, 

Pari: Cholley mommaa... she copied.

Pari and Parag smiled happily watching them and embraced them in their arms, Armaan and Riddhima smiled at the perfect family....

Parag: Ha, and we know professional work kitna hota hai and personal kitna, ....... He spoke and both Riya and Parag burst out laughing... Armaan and Riddhima were both embarassed....

Riddhima: Di...... Riddhima spoke shyly and ran towards her room....Everyone smiled more looking at her.....

Armaan: Di, ap bhi na, dekho bichari kaise bhaag gayi.... He spoke glaring at his sister

Riya: Acha, woh bichari ? Huh ?? She spoke pouting 

Parag: Remember Riya, yeh wahi Armaan hai jo hamein har pal chidata tha..... He spoke.... Armaan's eyes popped out.

Armaan: Ha toh, I have the right to tease my sister and you....., he spoke grinning at them

Parag: Ha toh Riddhima bhi meri behen hai,...... he said proudly.

Riya: Yeah, and we have the rights too... She spoke folding her hands before her chest while Parag looked at him proudly too.....

Armaan: What ever..... Armaan spoke loosing the competion and walked away to his room......... Riya and Parag hi-5ed and burst out laughing....

*----------*----------------------*----------*

Gupta House,

It was late-evening by now..... Nani was being taken care of Padma........ Anjali had just returned from Sanjeevani along with Shashank who was in a very happy mood today...... Anjali hurried towards her room, After sometime she ran from her room towards the hall, dressed casually.......

Anjali: Dad, Dad, Dad she spoke walking down the stairs... Shashank and Padma looked at her suprised.

Shashank: Slowly beta, aur aap kaha jarahe hai...... He asked raising his browns...

Anjali: Dad, main Mallik house jarahi hu..... She spoke gently, and looked at his reaction, afraid that her father would burst at her any minute....

Shashank: Hmmm...... He spoke normally while Anjali still stared at him, Padma stopped her way to the kitchen and looked at him, both the ladies couldn't believe their ears.......

Anjali: Dad, main Mallik Mansion jarahi hu..... Anjali stated again, this time a little louder, thinking that he might have not heard it right....

Shashank: Anjali, jaldhi ghar wapas ajao okay..... he spoke looking at her.... Anjali and Padma looked at each other utterly suprised...

Anjali: I will okay, I love you dad.... She gave a quick hug to him and ran towards the exit happily...

Shashank: come soon beta..... he smiled back at her........

Padma looked at him very suprised.... She walked towards him and stood infront of him...... Shashank looked at her confused...

Shashank: Padma ? kya hua....... he asked normally

Padma: Shashank aapne Anjali ko Mallik Mansion jane ki permission diya, aur woh bhi haste haste...... She said staring at him......... 

Shashank: Haa Anjali ko waha jana tha........ he said smiling

Padma: Shashank sab kuch thik toh hai na........? She still couldn't believe him.

Shashank: thik ? Padma ab toh sab kuch sahi hai..... He said happily... This confused Padma more...

Padma: Matlab ?? she asked confused..... Shashank stood up smiling

Shashank: Padma, aaj mujhe yeh realise hogaya hai ki Armaan itna acha ladka hai, aur hamare Riddhima ke liye Armaan hi sahi hai........ He said smiling while she still stared at him.....

Padma: Huh ?? she spoke

Shashank: ha Padma, tum sahi sun rahi ho....main kitna galat tha Armaan ke baare main..., Armaan Riddhima se sach main bahooth pyaar karta hai, Armaan jutna Riddhima se pyaar karta hai na, shayad hi koi Riddhima se utna pyaar kar payega.......pata nahi main pehele kyu nahi yeh sab notice kiya..... lekin mujhe apne galati ka ehesaas hai Padma, aaj mera ego har gaya aur unka sacha pyaar jeet gaya Padma..... Main Armaan aur Riddhima dono se maafi mangna chahta hu...... lekin kya woh dono mujhe kabhi maaf kar payenge... Padma mujhe meri beti wapas chahiye.......He asked scared and worried.

Padma: Ha Shashank, Riddhima aapse bahooth pyar karti hai.... woh zaroor aapko maaf kardegi...... She said assuring him...

Shashank: Aur Armaan, maine toh uske family se bhi etna battar batein kaha tha...... 

Padma: Shashank, sab kuch thik hojayega...... aur Armaan bhi apko maaf kardega.... she said assuring him...

Shashank: Mujhe Armaan ki family se bhi maafi magni padegi.......... he spoke, Padma nodded her head and smiled at him...... Both hugged each other happily , and hoping for the best...

Mallik Mansion

Armaan and Riddhima would leave for lunavala the next day for a week long, so everyone had gathered in the Mallik Mansion for a small get-to-gether and for a delicious dinner........Atul and Anjali along with Rahul and Muskaan had joined the Mallik's for the evening.... They thought to make the evening a little interesting after a lot of discussions and selection..... everyone had decided to go for Truth and Dare...... Truth and Dare was the coolest game to make the evening a happy and enjoyable one.....So here they were all sitting in the hall, on the mat, they all sat in the middle of the hall, making a circle.... 4 couples namely.... Armaan and Riddhima, Parag and Riya, Atul and Anjali, and Rahul and Muskaan.... The Varun and Pari were busy watching Tom and Jerry in their toy room which was just opposite to them, so that they all could keep an eye on the kids as well....

Anjali: So game start kare.... she spoke aloud..

All: Yeah........

Everyone was excited for the game.....The empty bottle, was then placed in the middle of the circle, it was spinned on the white marbled floor fastly.... Slowly, slowly the Bottle stopped......The top of the bottle faced Riya... 

Rahul: Wow, So Riya... Truth or dare....??

Riya: Truth..... she concluded.

Rahul: Truth Hmm, lemme think...... acha tell us how did Parag propose you...... he spoke winking at her, Riya blushed.... all cheered

Riya: Parag.... well he proposed me in our college times, jab hum saath main MBA pad rahe the, he proposed me with a bunch of red roses, and i accepted it instantly..... a lot of "awww" was said by all.......She spoke smiling at her hubby dear..... Parag smiled back at his wife.....

The bottle was spinned again and it came to a halt and faced Muskaan......

Armaan: Whoa muski,........ Tell me Truth or Dare.... he spoke confidently

Armaan: Well you see we all want some spice added, Toh u have tto do a ramp..... Armaan finished grinning at her....

Muskaan: Fine... she spoke confidently.......

Fashion ka Jalwa song was played, Muskaan kept her left hand over her left hips and walked confidently, flauting her body smartly.. She walked to and fro, posing in the middle..... Everyone liked it and smiled at her..... Muskaan looked at Armaan and smirked...... Armaan smiled back.

The bottle was spinned again and it came to a halt and faced Rahul ......

Riya: Ab bachke kaha jaoge Rahul........ Truth or Dare..

Rahul: Dare....... he spoke winking at her

Rahul: Fine...... he spoke and turned Muskaan towards him......

Muskaan seemed to blush, her face had turned tomato red, She looked at him and shook her head..... Rahul nodded his head winking at her..... Everyone cheered Rahul happily.........Slowly Rahul bent down and pressed his lips on Muskaan.... It was just a normal peck and they broke apart..... Both blushed while everyone teased them by saying "ohhhhhh".....

Rahul: Okay next....... he spoke in order to shut everyone's mouth, hiding his smile and spinned the bottle around.

The bottle pointed Riddhima......... Everyone cheered while Riddhima looked shocked.... Armaan's mind popped an idea.

Atul: Ridzy..... bolo kya logi Truth or Dare ?? he asked ...... Riddhima seemed to be silent thinking.

Armaan: Ofcourse Truth Atul........ Riddhima and Dare no ways...... Armaan challenged openly. Riddhima's mouth fell open hearing him... he was actually challenging her....... Armaan grinned at her......

Riddhima: what no ways..... Armaan tumhe lagta hai that...... i can't take a dare..... She frowned at him.

Armaan: ofcourse not sweet heart..... But as far as i know you........... you ll pick up Truth......... He said innocently, hiding his smile.

Riddhima: Oh....Then you don't know me Yet... Mr. Mallik ........ she challenged back

Armaan: We ll see Miss Gupta ....... he challenged back....... 

Riddhima: Dare....... She announced looking at Armaan..... Armaan grinned looking at her.....
