PART 2 : Dil Mein Chupa Lunga - An AR TS -

                                     

AT NIGHT

As soon as Armaan enter the house, he look around to see Aana as usual sitting in front of the television... Bi was sitting with her as Riddhima was no where to be seen... Armaan understood Riddhima must be in her room so without bothering to let Bi and Aana knows about his arrival, Armaan move towards Riddhima room which was upstairs next to his room...


Armaan thought it would be best to give the room next to his to Riddhima as she is the one to take care of Aana from now... Whenever she used to studies when Aana is sleeping, it would be easy for her if she is close to Aana so she could keep an eye on her... So without delaying as he want so many answers from her, Armaan move to her room banging in making Riddhima look at him with the sudden enter as the door bang on the wall...

Riddhima who was sitting in front of her laptop doing work, maybe studying stood up seeing Armaan that too banging like that in her room... He never come to her room without permission but seeing Armaan enter without asking for permission, she was really shocked with his behavior...

Before Riddhima could ask anything Armaan stood in front of her and hit the file hardly on the table next to her laptop... Riddhima look at Armaan and than at the file which was now carelessly laying on the table, she turn back her gaze on Armaan as she saw anger in his orbs which she never saw in her stay still now in Mallik Mansion with him, Aana and Bi...
'Armaan yeh...' Riddhima was cut by Armaan...
'Kyun Riddhima, kyun aapne nhi bataya mujhe...' Armaan said holding her through her shoulder tightly letting his finger dig in her skin...
'Ouch, Armaan... U r hurting me, kiya problem hai aap bataenge...' Riddhima asked struggling to get out from his hold...
'Dost maanna ta na aapne mujhe, toh aapne itni badi baat kyun chupa ya mujhse Riddhima...' Armaan asked again...

Riddhima was very surprise with Armaan behavior, she didn't get any idea of what Armaan was talking about... What she hasn't tell him about, what she has hidden from him, she has no clue... Riddhima look at Armaan as their eyes met, with so much emotions in his orbs... For the first time, they try to understand what was going through in each other heart and mind by looking through each other eyes...

Tears form in Riddhima eyes feeling pain as Armaan nails were leaving marks on her bare shoulder as she was wearing a sleeveless tank top with a legging which she used to wear at night time... Armaan who was hurt more than angry, loose his hold seeing water forming in Riddhima orbs... He don't know why he felt so bad that he was physically hurting her...

When Armaan hold got lose, Riddhima move his hand away from her as she rubbed her shoulder, trying to less the pain... She look at him with question in her eyes not understanding about Armaan sudden change of behavior that leads him to hurt her like that... She took the file which Armaan left on the table, she open it and go through the file as she don't understand why Armaan was reacting seeing her information as she had never hide it from him or from his company...

Riddhima look back at Armaan who stood still looking at him, she show him the file as if asking what was wrong in that as she didn't find anything wrong... Armaan who calm himself, understood the unspoken words hidden in her eyes...
'Riddhima Shashank Gupta, aap Dr. Shashank Gupta, Best Surgeon ke beti ho... Who is one of the richest person...' Armaan asked...
'Armaan, maine kabhi apni identity hide nehi kiya hai... Yeh aapke company ka file haina, jaha aap apne saare employees ke information rakhte hai... Maine bhi yeh fill kiya hai, bina kuch chupaye toh aap aaj yeh sawal mujhse kyun puch rahe ho...' Riddhima asked...
'Riddhima, aapne kabhi apni family ke baare mein kuch kaha kyun nehi...' Armaan asked...
'Aap issiliyeh mujhse naraz hogayi ya kuch aur baat hai Armaan...' Riddhima asked...
'Aap Siddhant Modi koh jaante ho???' Armaan asked her...
'Haan jaanta hoon, meri shaadi uske saath fixed hone wala ta...' Riddhima said...
'Riddhima, mujhe samajh nehi aa raha... Aap itni rich family se ho, toh aapko paison ki zarurat kyun pad gayi aap yaha Aana ke nanny banke rehne ke liyeh tayyar hogayi, kyun...???' Armaan asked...

Keeping the file back on the table, Riddhima move away from Armaan as stood looking at her back as she move to the balcony door which was open letting the curtains flies with the winds coming through it...
'Meri koi irada nehi ta aapse yeh sab chupane ka Armaan, haan yeh sach hai main rich family se belong karti hoon lekin kiya faida jab waha ke logo koh meri khushi ke aage apna zidd pyari hai... Armaan, aap jaante hai mujhe paison ki kyun zarurat ti... Mujhe kuch banna hai, na ki Dr. Shashank ki beti ke naam se pehchan banani ti... Lekin papa, papa chahte hai main shaadi karun...' Riddhima said as she look at the moon as she remember the day she left her house, the house where she spend her whole childhood, her life...


FLASH BACK START


Today was the day Riddhima got her result from Collage, she was very happy that she has top once again... As soon as she got the result, she run back to her home to give the happy news to her family... She was so happy that she would get chance in famous university for her further studies... With happiness twinkling in her eyes, she enter the house calling her father and mother...

Riddhima is second daughter of Dr. Shashank Gupta and Smriti Gupta... They have another daughter, Dr. Anjali Gupta who is Psychiatrist and married to Dr. Atul Joshi (Pediatricians), Son of Dr. Om Joshi who is equal partner in Sanjeevani Hospital with Shashank... However, Riddhima didn't feel to go in the same flied so she choose business which no one had any objection as they love her too deary as she is the smallest in the house...

Shashank and Smriti came out from their room hearing their daughter voice, seeing them Riddhima run and hugs both of them at the same time... After coming out from the hug, she swing around holding Smriti while she asked her to stop but Shashank stood enjoying her princess cute attire...
'Bas karo Riddhima, kiya hogaya hai...' Smriti asked finally when she let go off her...
'Mom dad, I did it... Once again, I top from the collage...' Riddhima said finally disclosing her happiness...
'Congratulations beti...' Shashank said hugging his daughter...
'Thank you Papa...' Riddhima said smiling to him...
'Many many congratulations beti...' Smriti also wish her kissing her forehead...
'Thank you ma... Main di koh yeh news suna ke aati hoon...' Riddhima said...
'Haan, phir hum bhi aapko ek acchi news suna enge...' Shashank said...

Riddhima who make her way towards the stairs stop hearing her father... Here she gave such a wonderful news and her parents has already decide to give her another news... She thought it might be about her further studies as she had discuss about it with her dad which didn't go too well as he thinks she should get settle down before continue studying further...

Riddhima thought Shashank was just saying like that as they had let Anjali also study and do her internship before she got married and here, Riddhima just complete her collage and she wants to studies further...
'Kiya news hai Papa...' Riddhima asked coming back to them...
'Bata dun...????' Shashank ask looking at Smriti...
'Nehi, abhi nehi...' Smriti said...
'Abhi kyun nehi, batao na Ma...' Riddhima said...
'Aapki ma sahi keh rahi hai, abhi nehi... Jab waqt aayenge, bata dungi aapko...' Shashank said playing along with Smriti...
'That's not fair, baat batana nehi ti toh cheda kyun... Ab toh aap dono koh batana hoga...' Riddhima said making a puppy face...
'Chalo tik hai, aapne itna accha news diya hai toh hum bhi dete hai... Aapko dekhne ladke wale teen din baad aa raha hai...' Shashank said hugging her...

Riddhima just stood hearing this, she had already clearly said she don't want to think about getting married and here her parents were not taking her words seriously.... She don't understand why they were hell bend to get her married this soon when her sister married when she was only ready to get settle down...

Seeing no reaction from Riddhima, Shashank break the hug and look at her blank face... Smriti who was smiling a while ago, even her smile fade seeing Riddhima expression... Shashank look towards her who blink her eyes as if saying she would talk... Smriti move towards her, to bring her back from her shocked state, she touch Riddhima arms...
'Kiya huva, aap aise kyun khade ho...' Smriti asked...
'Are u guys serious...???' Riddhima asked looking at their faces...
'Of course beti... Is mein mazak karne wali kiya baat hai... Ab aap bhi badi hogayi hai, collage complete kiya hai toh...' Shashank was cut by Riddhima...
'Toh aapne socha, ek beti koh toh sasural bhej diya... Dusri koh bhi bhej dete hai, kyunna woh chaahe ya na chaahe right...' Riddhima said loudly...
'Riddhima, yeh kiya tarika hai apne papa se baat karne ka...' Smriti shake her when Riddhima rise her voice...
'Kyun nehi, jab maine aap dono koh clearly kaha mujhe aage aur padna hai toh kyun meri shaadi itni jaldi karwana chahte hai...' Riddhima asked...
'Shaadi abhi karne koh kaha bol rahi hai hum beti, woh log toh bas aapko dekhne aayenge... Aajkal acche ladke kaha milte hai itni aasaani se... Milne se kiya problem hai aapko, sahi laga toh sagai karwa denge, shaadi baad mein kar sakte haina aap...' Shashank said...
'Aur nehi toh kiya, aur jab meri shaadi huvi tab main tumhari umar ki ti Riddhima... Aur dekho, hum kitni khush hai aaj tak...' Smriti said...
'Ma, aap kyun nehi samajh rahi... Mujhe abhi nehi karni shaadi, na mujhe sagai karni hai... Mujhe padna hai, kuch banna hai...' Riddhima said...
'Bas Riddhima, hum aapko aage padne se mana nehi kar rahi... Iska yeh matlab nehi aap humhare faisle koh tukraenge... Woh log aapko dekhne aayenge toh aap tayyar rehna, uske baad jo hoga woh aapko maanna hoga...' Shashank said announcing his last words...

Riddhima felt tears form in her eyes as neither her mother or father was ready to hear out her... She never thought it would happen to her as they had give freedom to her sister till she achieve what she wants to in her life... When Anjali become resident doctor only she agree to get married and its true before that she was engage to Atul as Shashank has already fixed her allience with him... Only they were unaware that Atul and Anjali already was in love with each other that make them agree to get engage and married later when Anjali complete her internship...

Knowing it would be no used to argue with her father, Riddhima just left to her room as she bang the door hardly making the loud voice echo around the big mansion... Shashank and Smriti look at each other seeing Riddhima behavior, they never thought Riddhima would react like that... They know she wants to studies but they didn't find anything wrong by meeting the boy and his family as they haven't decide to fixed unless they aren't ready... It was just a matter of meeting and getting to know each other before they decide anything for their future life...

While Shashank was worried with Riddhima behavior, Riddhima was crying thinking how can her parents not listen to her wishes and dream... She laid on bed on her stomach as she hide her face on pillow letting the tears soak it... Riddhima didn't dare to move or call Anjali as she was too upset with the news her parents has given to her when she was so happy today...

After sometimes, Smriti came to see Riddhima still laying like that... Smriti knows she needs to make her understand and make Riddhima agree to meet the boy for once before she decide anything... So when Shashank left to the hospital, she has come to talk her giving her time to calm down before making her understand Shashank point of view...
'Riddhima...' Smriti call her caring her hair as she sit next to her...

Riddhima didn't move but just turn her face to the other side as Smriti heard her sob... Smriti care her hair knowing what she must be thinking about her parents... That is the reason she has come to talk her, make clear things before Riddhima take any wrong impression about her parents...
'Baccha, main jaanti hoon aapko accha nehi laga yeh baat... Lekin aap samajhne ki koshish karo, ek pita koh apne beti ke liyeh chinta toh rehti haina jab tak uske zindagi mein aisa koi insaan na aaye jo uska khayal rakhenge, humhare tarah aur shayad humse accha...' Smriti said...

Riddhima look at Smriti hearing this, her eyes were blood shot red by crying for almost an hour... Smriti lovingly clear her eyes shaking her head as if asking her not to cry... Riddhima put her head on Smriti lap as she hugs her around waist trying to understand what her mother is telling her... Riddhima wants to believe everything but somewhere she felt, her parents were just hurrying to get her married and send away...
'Jo bhi faisla hoga, woh aapko hi lena hai Riddhima... Hum bas chahte hai aap ladke se milo, usse jaanne ki koshish karo... Aapke papa koh woh ladka bohot pasand hai, issiliyeh woh chahte hai aap bhi usse jaanne ki koshish kare... Beti, hum jaante hai aapki kuch sapna hai... Aapko jo tik lage, woh aap usse keh sakte hai... Usne aapke baat maanna hai toh accha hai lekin aap dono ke thinking na mile toh aap inkaar kar sakte hai... Bas ek baar ladke se milo, uske baat faisla karo...' Smriti said...

Riddhima just laid like that without saying anything, letting her mother speak... Riddhima give a thought to the matter as her mind and heart was now calm and ready to think what would be best for her and her parents... Smriti just keep caring her hair knowing Riddhima must be thinking and she don't want to disturb her thought...
'Chalo aap fresh hojao, main khana lagati hoon... Aapki favorite halwa banati hoon, after all aapne itna accha result laya hai toh treat toh banta haina... Phir hum sab raat koh dinner pe chalenge, aapke papa, di aur jiju ke saath hmm... ' Smriti said trying to move her head but Riddhima just hold Smriti waist tightly not leaving her...

Smriti smile seeing her action, she knows Riddhima must be feeling guilty for screaming like that on her father... She knows her daughter too well that she must be thinking how to say sorry to her father now... Smriti bend and kiss on her hair, Riddhima feeling the love of her mother move out and look at her still laying on her lap...
'Papa aapse naraz nehi hai, woh apni princess se naraz kaise reh sakte hai... Bas aap ek baar papa ke view se dekh ke samajhne ki koshish karo baccha... Woh aapse bohot pyar karte hai, bas aapko acche future dena chahte hai...' Smriti said...
'I know ma, but itni jaldi kiya ti...' Riddhima asked...
'Ladke wale milna chahte hai beti, aur woh aapke papa ke dost bhi hai toh woh mana nehi karpaye... Aapke exam chal rahi ti issiliyeh aapke papa mana karte aaya hai... Lekin ab phirse unlog ne bola toh aapke papa mana nehi karpae... Please ek baar mil lo beti, apne papa ke liye...' Smriti said caring her hair...
'Tik hai ma, but please aap log mujhe force nehi karenge shaadi ke liyeh... Pehle mujhe university complete karna hai, uske baad job... Phir main sochungi kab mujhe shaadi karna hai...' Riddhima said...
'Thank you baccha, aur I m sure woh bhi aapko aage padne se, job karne se mana nehi karenge...' Smriti said...
'I hope so, I would make everything clear with him so aage jaake koi problem na ho...' Riddhima said...
'Yehi tik hoga, aap usse baat karlena... Aur main aapke papa se kehke uske family se bhi aapke padai ke baare mein baat karenge, tik haina...' Smriti said...
'Love u ma...' Riddhima said again hugging her around her waist...
'Love u too my baccha, chalo ab fresh hojao... Dekho ro rokar kiya halat bana diya aapne...' Smriti said getting up as Riddhima move out from her lap...


THREE DAYS LATER


It was Sunday, Shashank and Smriti was busy arranging everything to welcome the boy and his family... Anjali and Atul also had come early morning to help them, Anjali was helping Riddhima to get ready while Atul was helping Shashank in decorating the house a little before the guest comes... Smriti was busy arranging the snacks with the help of maids while servants were helping Shashank and Atul in the hall...

As other was busy in their work, in Riddhima's room Anjali was helping her as she was doing her make up... Riddhima was asking her not to put so much as she don't like and prefer to look simple.. Normally Riddhima just use eyeliners and lip gloss but today, Anjali was doing her make up as she make her eyes look more beautiful giving a smoking eyes... Also Anjali wanted her to use red lip stick but Riddhima deny saying she is fine with her usual rose color lip gloss...

Riddhima was wearing a Yellow White Anarkali dress with long sleeve, high heels, her hair was left open as she put long earrings reaching to her shoulder... Her eyes was expressing everything as it was looking beautiful with smoking eyes...
'Now what to do with your hair Ridzy...' Anjali ask once she was done with her make up...
'Nothing Di, aap itna excited kyun ho rahe ho... Aur mujhe itna tayyar nehi hona, meri sagai ya shaadi tohdina ho rahi hai... Bas ladke wale milne aa rahe hai...' Riddhima said...
'Of course tumhe acche se tayyar hona hai Ridzy, after all ladke wale aa rahe hai tumhe dekhne... Aajka din toh accha hi lagna hai tumhe...' Anjali said...
'Common Di, aap jaante ho na mujhe koi interest nehi hai kissi se milne mein... Bas papa ke liyeh main tayyar hogayi usse milne... Pata nehi koan hoga, kaha se aaya hoga, kaise hoga...' Riddhima said...
'Jo bhi hai, woh tumhe jaanna haina... Aur pehli baar ladke wale dekhne aa raha hai, toh acchi toh dikhna haina uske saamne...' Anjali said...
'Rehne doh di, main aise hi tik hoon... Jisko mujhe pasand karna hai, aise hi mujhe accept karna hoga... Kyunki jo main nehi hoon, main waise nehi ban sakte kissi ke saamne... Aur na main kissi ke liyeh khud koh badhalne wali hoon... Waise bhi Di, baahar ki khubsurat koh dekhke jo mujhe pasand karenge, woh zindagi bar mujhe khush nehi rakh sakte...' Riddhima said...

Anjali just keep staring at Riddhima, seeing how mature she has become... They always treat like a princess or a small baby but here, she has prove she is no longer a baby... Or small that she don't understand whats right and wrong... She is old enough to take decision for her, they just need to show her the right path and support her in her hard time...

Seeing Anjali just staring at her without saying anything, Riddhima turn around facing her as she was sitting in front of the mirror as Anjali make her ready... Anjali who was looking Riddhima through the mirror look at her when Riddhima turn around facing her, Riddhima hold Anjali hands to bring her back to the world seeing her lost...
'Kiya huva Di...' Riddhima asked...

Anjali just smile and bend down kissing Riddhima forehead... Riddhima also smile seeing her sistery love, she hold Anjali hand which was cupping Riddhima cheek... Anjali straight herself as she care softly Riddhima cheeks as Riddhima still hold her hands...
'I m sure u would take the best decision for you... And believe me Ridzy, I will support u no matter what u decide in ur decision...' Anjali said...
'Love u Di...' Riddhima said kissing Anjali palms...
'Love u too my baby sister...' Anjali said as she hugs her...

RIDDHIMA DRESS



When Riddhima was fully ready, Anjali left saying she would check other arrangement and see if anyone needs her help... Also she said she needs to help Smriti as they had seen how nervous she had been from morning...  Soon Anjali left to help Smriti and Riddhima was left in her room alone to wait till Anjali come back to take her when the guy and his family comes...

Everything was done by the time the guy and his family arrived, Shashank and Smriti welcome them as they greeted each other, Shashank introduce Anjali and Atul to them as well who was very much happy to meet Shashank eldest daughter and son-in-law... Soon they were sitting in the hall as Smriti and Anjali serve them drinks and snacks... Shashank and the guy father was busy in their own conversation while Atul keep the guy busy with him... Smriti and Anjali gave company to his mother...

Few minutes past like that and finally the guy mother asked about Riddhima... Smriti look at Anjali and she understood it was time to bring Riddhima down... Giving her best smile, she left to bring her sister as the guy kept looking towards the stairs where Anjali left to bring Riddhima... Atul smirk seeing how eagerly the guy was waiting for Riddhima to come...

After some times, Anjali was coming down with Riddhima... Riddhima was looking down as she don't want to wish to look at the guy... Shashank and Smriti look towards the stairs along with the guest and Atul as they heard Anjali and Riddhima footsteps...
'Yeh dekho aagayi meri princess...' Shashank said as he stood up...
'Bohot khubsurat hai aapka princess Shashank...' The guy father said...
'Thank you Mr. Modi... Woh toh hona hi ta, after all princess kiska hai...' Shashank said putting his arm around Riddhima shoulder as Anjali bring her towards him...
'Humse bhi toh milwao apni princess se bhaisaab...' Mrs. Modi said...
'Zarur bhabhi Ji, Riddhima yeh hai Mr. and Mrs. Modi... Siddhant ki mom and dad, Aur yeh hai Siddhant Modi...' Shashank said introducing Riddhima to them...

Riddhima joint her hands greeting them, and move to them taking bless... Then she look towards Siddhant who was lost in her, she joint her hand and greet him too who just keep staring at them... Mrs. Modi make Riddhima sit next to her as she talk with her, all this time Siddhant kept staring at her... Atul and Anjali smirk seeing how Siddhant was lost in Riddhima, Anjali nudge Atul as she signal something which didn't go unnoticed by the elders...

Riddhima who was sitting next to Mrs. Modi could feel Siddhant gaze on her but she didn't look at him... Riddhima was just answering Mrs. Modi questions, only with two three words as she didn't like this happening... That too when they are here to decide about their future...
'Chalo humne toh baat karliya, ab bacchon koh akele mein baat karne dete hai... Kyun bhaisaab...' Mrs. Modi said...
'Haan zarur, Riddhima beti... Siddhant koh ghar dikhao, aur apni kamra bhi...' Shashank said...
'Ji Papa...' Riddhima said...
'All the best...' Atul whisper to Siddhant as he stood up with Riddhima...

Riddhima look at Siddhant and then to Anjali Atul who was sitting giving her their best smile... Anjali gave a thumbs up and blink her eyes seeing nervousness in Riddhima face, Riddhima gave a small smile and move towards the stairs as Siddhant move behind her... Riddhima show around the house and finally they reach to Riddhima room... They didn't talk other then Riddhima just gave a small brief about every place around the house...

When they finally reach to Riddhima's room, Riddhima thought it high time she speak to him... Riddhima didn't want Siddhant to think she is happy with all this happening... So once they were in the room, that too alone... Riddhima thought its better to clear things...
'Siddhant, mujhe aapse kuch kehna hai...' Riddhima said...
'Ji...' Siddhant ask facing her...
'Woh, mujhe nehi pata aap ya aapke family mujhe milne ke baad kiya faisla lenge but jo bhi lenge aap sochke lena... Usse pehle main aapko kehna chahta hoon main abhi shaadi ke liyeh tayyar nehi hoon... Plz aap meri puri baat pehle sunlo...' Riddhima said seeing Siddhant open his mouth to speak...

Hearing Riddhima request, Siddhant shut his mouth... Siddhant thought to let Riddhima say everything she wants to, already he likes her and seeing her straight forward behavior Siddhant knows she don't like to keep anything inside her or to herself...
'Haan toh jaise maine kaha, main abhi shaadi ke baare mein socha nehi kyunki mujhe aur padna hai... Shayad yeh aapke liye problem nehi hoga, phir bhi main aapse yeh khud batana chahta ta... Uske baad mein job karna chahti hoon, kuch banna chahta hoon... Issiliyeh humhari rishta fixed bhi hogaye toh, main ummed karti hoon aap mujhe waqt denge mujhe apna sapna sach karne ke liyeh...' Riddhima said...

Siddhant smile hearing her, from the moment his eyes laid on her he thought he would like to give a chance to their new relation... He wanted to know more about her, spend sometimes with her so they get to know about each other... Siddhant like her and seeing her honesty, now he was sure that he want to fixed his relation with her...
'Mujhe koi problem nehi hai Riddhima, Aur na mera mom dad koh problem hoga... Woh log bhi khush hogi yeh jaanke aapki kuch sapna hai aur aap kuch banna chahte hai... Mujhe aap bohot pasand hai Riddhima, jitna waqt lena hai aap le sakte hai... Koi jaldi nehi hai...' Siddhant said...
'Thank you Siddhant, mujhe samajhne ke liyeh...' Riddhima said...
'Nehi samjhenge toh aage jaakar hum apne zindagi kaise ek dusre ke saath guzarenge...' Siddhant said...

Riddhima just smile not knowing what to say as she didn't think but seeing his caring nature, she thought to give a chance to him... She knows it would be up to her if she wants to continue the relation or not... Before either of them could say anything, Anjali came to inform that others were calling them... Siddhant and Riddhima went back to the hall, Mr. Modi asked Siddhant about his decision and Siddhant said he like Riddhima...

Everyone was happy and elders decide to get them engage soon just to give a name to their relation... Riddhima didn't say anything because of Mr. and Mrs. Modi present... Mrs. Modi said she will talk to their pandit and final a date for their engagement which Shashank and Smriti agree happily... Everyone was happily congratulating each other while Riddhima just sit in between them not understanding why everything was going so fast in her life when she has some other dreams to fulfilled...


TWO DAYS LATER


Siddhant and Riddhima engagement was fixed after two weeks and everyone was very happy about it... Riddhima try to talk Smriti about the happening but she was left avoided as Smriti was busy with the arrangement... Even Riddhima try to talk Anjali but she was too excited for the function, about shopping as she get a reason to spend another millions for dress and jewelry...

Riddhima thought no one was having time to her so she at last decide to talk Shashank... So when Shashank came from hospital and Smriti wasn't in home, Riddhima went to her parents room only to hear Shashank was on a call... Riddhima thought to come later but hearing her name, she couldn't help but stop there to hear to whom her father was talking, that too about her...

Riddhima never thought, what she would hear will make her heart break in to pieces... Here, she was ready to do anything her father wants but on the other side her father has some other plans... Soon tears started to falls from her eyes on her cheeks, she stood outside the room as Shashank continue talking on the phone... Understanding everything clearly, why Shashank was so much in hurry to fixed her relation with the Modi's, Riddhima move back to her room as so much roam around her mind and heart...

As Shashank words roam in her mind, silently cries never thinking her father would do this to her... Riddhima always believe that her father loves her deary but how wrong she was... Today, her father has prove how much she means to him and she feel disgust to accept that man is her father... Decide what she has to do, Riddhima waited till night and she had make some calls before the sun set...

After a hectic day, when everyone goes to bed Riddhima slowly came out from her room to see darkness around the house... Riddhima thought the darkness was discribing her loneliness today, she look around as dim light was in the hall... Again tears started to fall from her eyes as she look around, when the happy memories flash in front of her eyes...

Riddhima slowly make her way towards her parents room, she quietly open the door and saw her parents sleeping peacefully... She knows whatever she was going to do, surely it will hurt her mother as she knows it may not effect her father when he can already plan to ruin her life for his needs... Riddhima move inside and kept a letter on side table of Smriti side, then she looks at her mother face for the last time before leaving...

Riddhima didn't look at Shashank face as she didn't feel to look at him for the last time as she didn't know when she would come back to this house again... Riddhima knows, they would try to find her but she don't want anyone to find her till she want. giving a last look Riddhima left with tears in her eyes and a paining heart thinking how can a father use his daughter just to get what he wants in life...


FLASH BACK END


By the time Riddhima finished telling Armaan why she had left the house, how she knows or Siddhant Modi knows her, tears were falling from their eyes none stop... Armaan could feel Riddhima pain as she silently cry thinking how her father make a deal to get her married to a guy so his father would help him in his business...
'Armaan, main aapse kuch bhi chupana nehi chaahti ti... Aapne kabhi poocha nehi toh maine aapse ya Bi se kuch nehi kaha apni family ke baare mein... Aisa nehi hai main un logo se pyar nehi karti hoon, bohot pyar karti hoon aur miss bhi karti hoon... Main jaanti hoon woh log mujhe dhundne ki koshish karenge... Issiliyeh main Delhi aayi hoon, yaha main apni dost ki ghar rehti ti lekin kab tak... Mujhe job ki zarurat ti, mujhe fark nehi pada koi bhi job se jab tak mujhe paise milti rahe...
Shayad meri luck ta, aapke post ke baare mein mujhe pata chala... Darti apni dost ke ghar pe rahenge toh woh log mujhe dhund lenge, issiliyeh bina kuch soche, bina experience ke hote huve main aapke paas gayya... Aapne mujhe job dekhe mujhe rehne ki jhaga diya hai... In other words, main apnon se chup rahi ti toh aapne mujhe chupne ki jhaga is ghar mein diya hai...
Woh log yeh nehi sochenge main itni badi ghar mein ek nanny ke tarah rahenge... Shayad aaj Siddhant ne mujhe aapke saath nehi dekha hoti, mujhe khud pata nehi chalti aap anjaan hai meri identity se... I m sorry Armaan, mera aapse kuch bhi chupa ne ka iraadha nehi ta... Phir bhi aapko lagta hai main is layak nehi hoon yaha rehkar Aana ka dekhbhal kare, aap mujhe nikal sakte hai...' Riddhima said...

Armaan felt guilty for shouting and hurting her thinking she did it all intentionally but here after knowing Riddhima herself didn't know Armaan was unaware of her identity, his guilt increase... True, he gave her a place to stay... Unknowingly, he has make everything easy for her... He has make a path for her to achieve her dreams but still he hurt her today when she was there taking care of his niece without thinking what people would think once they get to know, someone like her who belongs to a rich family is working as a nanny of a child...

Armaan move close to her, keeping his hand on her shoulder... Riddhima look at him, giving a small smile and clear her tears... She again look back at the sky as stars were twinkling around the full moon... Armaan felt to hide her in his arms, take her pain as it make his heart bleed seeing how broken she was thinking about her father plan... Armaan put his arms around her shoulder, Riddhima who was dying to have a support in her life just lean on him as she hide herself in his chest...

Again tears form in her eyes making her view blur, she close her eyes letting it fall from her eyes... As Riddhima shakes in his hold, Armaan rub his palm on her bare arms sending shivers in her spine... Both were enjoying the closeness as they felt a new emotions, Riddhima wanted to ask why he felt so bad to know about her identity but before she could ask anything, their moment was break with Aana voice...
'Ma...' Aana called making Armaan and Riddhima move apart...

Riddhima clear her face as she don't want Aana to see her tears and crying face... Armaan also clear his face as he look at Riddhima who was about to move to go and check what Aana wants... Before Riddhima could leave, Armaan hold Riddhima wrist making her stop... Riddhima look at Armaan seeinng his action, Armaan didn't leave but just keep looking at her face...
'Woh, mujhe aapse kuch aur baat bhi karna ta...' Armaan said...
'Abhi...???' Riddhima asked...
'Nehi, aap abhi Aana ke paas jao... Hum baad mein karenge...' Armaan said...
'Are you sure...??? Aapko aur koi doubts hai toh main abhi clear karna chahti hoon Armaan...' Riddhima said...
'Ab koi doubt nehi hai....' Armaan said caring her hand...

Riddhima felt an unknown current pass in her spine, she just kept staring at Armaan as their eyes met... She saw some emotions in his eyes which makes her heart skip a beat... Next moment, Riddhima felt his lips on her cheeks making her eyes got wide... Riddhima don't know what makes him kiss her and his next words make her more confused...
'Thank you... For coming in our life...' Armaan said understanding her confused expression...

Again they were interrupt as Aana came running in the room when Riddhima didn't come out when she called her... Seeing Armaan, Aana got excited and jump on him... Armaan took Aana to his room, Riddhima follow them as she check the time and it was time for Aana to go to bed... Riddhima has already make Aana had her dinner and ready to bed... Knowing she has taken her milk, Riddhima make her laid on the bed as Armaan went to get fresh up... Aana wants to stay awake till Armaan come out but she couldn't keep her eyes open for long as soon she was in deep slumber...

When Armaan came out, Riddhima left to warm his food... Armaan kiss Aana forehead and left knowing Bi and Riddhima would wait for him to have dinner... To Armaan surprise, Riddhima was nowhere to be seen... Bi serve Armaan when he came and seeing Armaan searching for someone, Bi understood he must be looking for Riddhima...
'Woh apne kamre mein hai, kuch worksheet complete karna ta usse toh maine bhej diya usko...' Bi answer Armaan unspoken question...
'Aap log ne khana khaliya...???' Armaan asked...
'Riddhima ne Aana ke saath khaaliya...' Bi said smiling, very well understanding Armaan was asking about Riddhima...
'Aur aapne...' Armaan asked...
'Abhi karti hoon meri bete ke saath...' Bi said joining Armaan...

Bi and Armaan had dinner, Bi had been looking at Armaan expression and she saw something was bothering him... When Riddhima had come to warm food for Armaan, Bi had seen how Riddhima face was pale... Bi don't know what might have happen but thought to ask Armaan as she hasn't seen him coming or Armaan meet her or Aana after  coming from office like he usually do...

When the dinner was done, Bi clean the dishes and plates... Bi felt that Armaan need a massage as something was bothering him that after dinner, he was sitting in the hall holding his head... So Bi again went back to the kitchen and got oil to massage his head... Armaan who was lost in his own land came back to reality sensing someone present and seeing Bi with the oil understood she is here to give a nice massage to him...

Without saying anything, Armaan move down in the carpet as Bi took seat on couch... Armaan rest his back on Bi legs as she put a towel on her lap as Armaan laid his head on her lap... Bi started to massage his head, neither of them speak but Bi couldn't hold herself for long...
'Kiya huva Armaan, pareshan lag rahe ho...' Bi asked...
'Kuch nehi Bi, bas aaj tak gaya hoon...' Armaan said...
'Jab jhut bola aata nehi toh bolte kyun ho, main tumhare ma hoon na... Apni bacchon ki pareshan dekh sakti hoon aur mehsus kar sakti hoon... Maine dekha hai aaj Riddhima ki chehre ki rang bhi utra huva ta... Jab ki woh pehle tik ti but achanak kya huva hai mujhe pata nehi... Armaan, jabse Riddhima aayi hai tabse maine ek baar bhi Riddhima ke chehre pe udaasi nehi dekha hai... Aaj aisa kiya huva jo uske chehre ke rang hi chali gayi...' Bi asked...
'Bi, sab meri wajahse huva... Maine usse kama ka bina uske galati ke itna suna ya aur hurt kiya...' Armaan said...
'Armaan yeh tum...' Bi was cut by Armaan who narrate everything happen that day...

Bi silently hear everything and seeing how much guilty Armaan was feeling thinking he has unintentionally hurt her... Bi keeps caring Armaan hair knowing now he would feel better when he finally tell her what was bothering him all this time...
'Tumhe itna bura kyun lag raha hai Armaan, Riddhima toh bas ek employee haina...' Bi said...
'Yeh aap keh rahe ho Bi, jab ki aap usse apni beti maanna hai... Woh Aana ki ma hai jo usse itni kam umar mein khoya...' Armaan said...
'Aur woh tumhara kiya lagti hai Armaan...' Bi asked...

Armaan was surprise to hear this as he don't understand what to reply her... Bi smile seeing his expression, she has seen clearly love in his eyes for her, how he care and get worried for her as if she is his family... Bi knows Riiddhima wouldn't take the first step as from all the relations they share, first they are boss and employee... Just like Bi has talk to Riddhima, she thought it times to talk Armaan and make him realized what he might lost if he didn't take the next step soon...

When Armaan didn't speak, Bi knows he must be trying to understand what she really means to him... Debates might be going in his brain and heart but Bi don't want Armaan to take much time as after what today happen, Riddhima might think she don't deserve to be with them after they know about her identity... Not because they have a problem to have Riddhima in the house but she might think unknowingly hidden such a big thing about her life to them...
'Baccha, main jaanti hoon shayad tum anjaan ho ya koi baat aapko rokh raha hai apne dil ki baat samajhne ke liyeh ya maanne ke liyeh... Tum khud socho Armaan, bina koi rishta hote huve Riddhima kaise humhari Aana ki khayal rakh rahi hai... Aana bhi usse apni ma maanne lagi hai, aur mujhe nhi lagta tumhe usse accha koi milenge...' Bi said...
'Lekin Bi, mujhe nehi pata Riddhima mere baare mein kiya sochte hai...' Armaan said...
'Tum khud apni dil ki baat usse nehi kahenge toh woh kaise samjhenge Armaan... Aur tum hi socho, woh tumhare liyeh kuch ehsaas nehi karte toh kyun humhare saath rahe...' Bi asked...
'Woh Aana ke liyeh hai yaha, aur usse paison ki bhi zarurat hai...' Armaan said...
'Ek baar usse poochkar toh dekho... Aisa na ho, tum usse na rokhe aur woh chali jaenge toh dukh sabse zyada tumhe aur Aana koh hoga...' Bi said...
'Aur bolne ke baad bhi chali gayi toh...???' Armaan asked...
'Toh tumhe dukh nehi hoga tum apni dil ki baat usse kaha... Nehi toh tumhe dukh hoga jab woh chale jaenge aur tumne apna moka gawa diya, yeh sochke...' Bi said...
'Mana toh nehi karenge na...' Armaan asked...
'Koi bhi ladki tumhe mana kar sakte hai kiya... Tumhare liyeh nhi toh Aana ke liyeh woh haan kardenge...' Bi said teasing him...
'Not fair na, mujhe bhi toh...' Armaan stop realizing what he was about to speak...
'Pakadgaye na, pyar karliya aur batane ka himmat nehi hai tujhe...' Bi said holding his ears...
'Ouch Bi, main toh bas...' Armaan was cut by Bi...
'Sab samajhti hoon... Ab tu meri ek baat maanle aur jaldi se Riddhima koh bolde... Usse accha ladki tumhe kahin nehi milenge, na Aana koh usse accha ma...' Bi said caring Armaan hair...

Armaan just laid his head on Bi' lap, Bi started to massage his head again and Armaan was busy thinking how he would confess to Riddhima... Armaan somehow feel that Riddhima also have feeling for him but as Bi said he tell her so they would know what Riddhima feels for him...
'Chalo ab jaakar sojao, aur sochle kaise batae Riddhima koh...' Bi said pushing him a little...
'Batadunga na Bi, jaldi kiya hai...' Armaan asked...
'Jaldi hai, mujhe apni Armaan ka dulhan koh laana hai is ghar mein aur Aana ki ma koh hamesha ke liyeh rakhna hai yaha...' Bi said...

Armaan smile hearing her, he knows how much she loves Riddhima... Kissing Armaan forehead, Bi went to the kitchen to keep the oil and washing her hand she left to her room... Armaan also left to his room and seeing Riddhima room's door close, he thought to talk her next day... Armaan laid on the bed and look at Aana who was sleeping peacefully, he move close to her and kiss her forehead...
'Jaldi aapko aapki ma hamesha ke liyeh miljaenge betu... Jo aapse hamesha ke liyeh apni godh mein chupa ke rakhenge, har takleef, har dard se bachaenge... Aur main, aapke ma koh dil mein chupa lunga... Jaise abhi chupke se chupaya hoon...' Armaan said smiling as Riddhima face flash in front of his eyes...


NEXT DAY


Armaan sleep was disturb due to his mobile ringtone, first Armaan didn't understand what was happening but when he realized it was his mobile he look at Aana who was sleeping peacefully snuggle close to him... As his eyes fell on the clock which was hanging in front of the bed wall, Armaan took the mobile putting it on silent... Making sure Aana's sleep didn't get disturb, Armaan move to the balcony as he left it open so he could see Aana from the distance but not let her sleep get disturb as it was only 6 am in the morning...

As soon as Armaan reach to the balcony, he answer the call to hear a tense Aryan from the other end... Armaan who was about to scold him stop hearing his worried voice... Without cutting him as Aryan tell him the reason and filled him with the information he get to know about of the cilent they were working... Soon worried lines form in Armaan's forehead as he care his temple, his eyes move to Aana who was still sleeping without realizing Armaan absent next to her...

After talking Aryan for like fifteen minutes, Armaan check the time as he ask him to arrange everything as soon as possible for him to leave Mumbai as it wasn't possible for anyone else to handle the matter at the moment... When Aryan inform that he had to leave in an hour, Armaan again check the time as he did some calculation in his mind...
'Aryan, make sure the matter get solve today itself... You know I don't like to stay away from Aana for a day even if its possible me to come back today itself...' Armaan said...
'If you talk to them and make them convince, you can take the flight back in evening Sir...' Aryan inform Armaan...
'Ok then, I will meet you in airport in 45 minutes...' Armaan said as he end the call...

Knowing he don't have time to wake Aana, Armaan quickly got ready and pack his bag as he really don't know if his work would be done by today so if by chance he had to stay back, he pack a pair of another suit, tshirt and shorts with necessary things... When he was ready to leave, he move to Aana... Armaan wanted to take her in his arms and shower her loves before he leaves but Armaan knows it would be difficult for him to consult her once she is awake and hear he is leaving...

So Armaan just care her hair and kiss her forehead as he watch her for some more time as if he was capturing the moment in his heart so he wouldn't miss her too much... Again kissing her, on her cheek this time Armaan came out from his room... His eyes move on Riddhima's room door and saw it was closed... He understood she must have been sleeping still as if she is awake, she always leaves the room door open so Armaan get a hint that she is awake...

Remembering the previous night realization about his feeling and promising himself as well Aana to give her ma for forever, Armaan sigh thinking he had to wait for another day or two before talking Riddhima... Looking at the close door, Armaan move down to see Bi coming out from her room... Armaan knows Bi would be awake as it her usual time to wake up before everyone else...

Seeing Armaan coming down that too early, holding a bag in his one hand Bi was surprise... Armaan smile and come in front of her hugging her... Bi hugs him but was still confused why he was awake so early and where he was going with the bag...
'Bi, mujhe pata hai aap kiya soch rahi hai... Don't worry main ghar chodke nehi jaa raha hoon... Mujhe ek kaam aagaya Mumbai mein toh main abhi nikal raha hoon taaki main woh kaam khatam karke aaj waapas aapaun... Maine Aana koh nehi bataya, aur Riddhima bhi abhi shayad uti nehi hai... Aap Aana koh sambhalenge na???' Armaan asked...
'Usse sambhalne ke liyeh uski ma haina, tum befikar hokar apna kaam khatam karke araam se aajana Armaan... Main Riddhima koh bata dungi aur woh apni tarike se Aana koh samjha denge...' Bi said...
'I know Bi, main pochke mobile karungi aapko... Khayal rakhna apna aur Aana ki bhi...' Armaan said...
'Haan, aur tum fikar mat karo... Main tumhari Riddhima ka bhi khayal rakhungi...' Bi said softly hitting Armaan cheek making him smile...

Kissing Bi's forehead, Armaan left with her blessing... Bi knows Armaan don't want to leave like that but also she knows he can't ignore business for his love ones as he was doing that for their happiness only... Praying for god to solve whatever problem has come in his way, Bi got busy with her dialy routine as Aana and Riddhima was still unaware of Armaan absent as they were in their dreamland...


ONE AND HALF HOUR LATER


Riddhima and Bi was trying to calm down Aana who was crying the moment  she wake up and not seeing Armaan next to her... Riddhima who was getting ready in her room came out hearing her cry, Bi also make her way to Armaan room to see Aana looking here and there searching for Armaan... When Bi inform Riddhima about Armaan who had to leave due to some emergency, Riddhima try to divert Aana attention but she wasn't convince when she didn't see Armaan in breakfast table either...

Riddhima has somehow make Aana ready for her play school but was now having a hard time trying to calm her as she wasn't ready to have breakfast without her Pa... As Armaan had leave msg to Riddhima, knowing Bi would inform her still Armaan did so she know he is on flight and his mobile would be off till he reach Mumbai...
'Baby, Pa aapko phone karenge...' Riddhima try to make Aana have her breakfast...
'Pa chahiyeh... Aana koh... Pa paas jaana hai...' Aana said as tears form in her eyes...
'Aapki Ma haina aapke paas, Pa bhi aajaenge... Aap good girl haina, abhi jaldi se breakfast karo... Aapko school nehi jaana kiya aaj...' Riddhima asked her as she make her sit on her lap...
'Pa paas jaana Aana koh...' Aana said rubbing her chubby cheeks...
'Dekho kaise meri Aanu ki cheeks red red hogaye aise rote rote... Aapko pata haina, Pa koh accha nehi lagte jab aap aise roti... Abhi aap Ma ki baat maano, aur good girl ki tarah breakfast karke school jao... Aapko waapas aate hi main aapki baat karwaungi Pa se... Aur hum dono milke Pa koh daatenge, tik hai... Pa ne meri Aanu koh rolaya haina, toh daat aur punishment bhi milenge aaj Pa koh... Aur punishment meri Aanu denge, right...' Riddhima said slowly rocking Aana in her lap...
'Sacchi...' Aana ask looking at Riddhima still with little tears in her eyes...
'Mucchi... Ab no more rona ok, dekho Bi ne aapke liyeh aaj pancakes banayi hai... Aapko pasand haina, with chocolate syrups... Yummy yummy...' Riddhima said forwarding a bite for Aana...
'Pa...' Aana said looking at Riddhima...
'Aajaenge but aap breakfast nehi karenge toh Pa sad hoge... Toh please baby, tohda khalo...' Riddhima said caring Aana hair...

After pampering her for some more time, Riddhima manage to make Aana finish her breakfast... Riddhima didn't get time to have her as she has to drop Aana and attend a lecture today to submit her project... So Riddhima inform Bi, she would have something once she reach university as she left with Aana... All this while, Bi was admiring how Riddhima handle Aana with so much love and care as if she is only her daughter... When they left, Bi thought to make Riddhima and Aana favorite food for lunch knowing very well Riddhima will forget to have her breakfast... So after resting for sometimes, Bi got busy making lunch...


A DAY LATER


Armaan had to stay back in Mumbai for a night as his problem didn't solve in a day... Armaan call Aana who complain and make him say sorry for god knows how many times... Also Aana make Armaan promise that he would bring gifts for her or not she wouldn't talk to him and how can Armaan deny any request from or order from his darling daughter...

After staying away for a night, by evening Armaan has come back with his both hands fill with bags... As soon as he enter the house and call Aana, she came running to him... Armaan sit on his knee as Aana run to his arms hugging him tight around his neck... Hearing Aana excited voice, Riddhima who was making dinner came out from the kitchen knowing Armaan has come... Bi who was with Aana, also had come behind her and seeing the scene she stood in a distance...

Armaan look at Bi and then his eyes move around as if he was searching someone... His eye laid on Riddhima who stood near the kitchen door as she admire him and Aana, Armaan smile to her which she return and turn her gaze away from them...
'Ma, Pa aagaya...' Aana said excitedly as Armaan carried her in his arm....

Everyone smile seeing Aana happy face, Riddhima move back to the kitchen to finish her work while Armaan got busy with Aana showing her gifts, also he had bought a gift for Bi and Riddhima... When Riddhima was still busy in kitchen, Aana call her as Armaan said he had bought gift for her Ma too... Riddhima came out hearing Aana calling her...
'Kiya huva baby...' Riddhima asked...
'Pa gift laya...' Aana said pointing to a wrapped gift which was in Armaan hand...
'Mere liyeh...' Riddhima asked...

Aana nodded her head excitedly, Bi stood up knowing Riddhima and Armaan would feel awkward in her present... Bi left saying she would check rest of the dinner, Aana got busy with new toys and dresses her Pa has bought for her... Riddhima look here and there knowing Armaan gaze were on her, she felt nervousness sensing Armaan strong gaze... Armaan stood up and move to her, Riddhima look at him who gave a smile to her...
'Pata nehi aapko accha lagega ya nehi, kal main aapko baahar lejana chahta hoon... Ummeed karta hoon, aap yeh dress pehenenge...' Armaan said forwarding the gift...
'Armaan, kiya zarurat ti...' Riddhima was about to deny when he cut her...
'Kyun nehi, aap Aana ki ma ho... Aap itna sab kuch kiya hai, mere liyeh... Yeh bohot chota gift hai Riddhima, bas ek hi request hai kal yeh pehenna aap... Mujhe accha lagega...' Armaan said taking her hand and keeping the gift in her palm...

Riddhima smile hearing his words, she was about to thank him but Armaan just blink his eyes understanding what she was going to say... Armaan left to his room to fresh up before dinner, an excited Aana pull Riddhima on the carpet as she shows her new toys and dress to her Ma... Riddhima smile seeing Aana smile which give warm to her heart, she just hugs her not wanting to leave her and let her smile fade ever...


NEXT DAY NIGHT


As Armaan has already tell Riddhima he wants to take her out, Riddhima got ready in the dress Armaan has given her the previous night... Armaan inform Bi so she wouldn't wait for them in dinner, Riddhima make Aana had her dinner before she left to get ready... Some how, Bi manage to make Aana agree to sleep in her room for the night as Armaan and Riddhima was going out...

Aana was excited as it has been days that Bi didn't read any story for her and when Bi mention she has some new stories for her... As the following day was Sunday, Armaan and Riddhima wasn't worried that Aana will be awake till 9pm as usually Riddhima put her to bed by 8 in week days... So by the time Armaan has come, Bi had took Aana with her to keep her busy not letting her see Armaan and Riddhima leave as they know she will insist to go with them...

Armaan got ready and he came out to check if Riddhima was ready, it was 8 30 now... Armaan knock on Riddhima's room door to get a quick reply from Riddhima asking to give her two minutes... Armaan smile knowing how much time these girls would take to get ready... He stood with his back towards the door, he was surprise that exactly in two minute he heard the door nob click open...

Checking the time once again, Armaan look towards Riddhima... His mouth was left open when his eyes laid on her, no words came out from his mouth as if someone has snatch his voice... Riddhima who was unaware of Armaan gaze as she was busy correcting her dress, came out from the room...
'Chale...' Riddhima asked as she move ahead...

As Armaan was standing in front of the door and Riddhima wasn't looking, she bump to him... Armaan hold her close to him by her waist, not letting them fall with the sudden bump... Armaan trace was broke but his eyes didn't stop staring Riddhima who was looking breath taking... Riddhima was shocked to bump him but relief when Armaan hold her before she lost her balance...

Riddhima look towards Armaan to thank him but seeing Armaan intense gaze, she felt shiver run down in her spine... Realizing their close proximity, as her softness was touching on Armaan's hard well built chest, Riddhima felt goosebumps araise in her body... Armaan felt her reaction with his mare touch, smile make its way on his lips feeling how much effect he has on her...

Riddhima quickly move out from Armaan arms, Armaan just look at her from head to toe and back to head as he admire the angel standing in front of her... He was so right that the dress is just made for Riddhima, she was looking the most gorgeous girl in the world... Riddhima make the dress shinning as she wore it, making it most beautiful thing in the world...

It was a black long dress, with a cut in left side showing her long milky leg up to her upper thingh as she wear a black high heels to match her dress... Upper part was hugging her body showing her perfect curves, her long neck and hands bare from the shoulder length... Riddhima has left her hair open with no jewelries, just eyeliner and red lip gloss as make up...

RIDDHIMA DRESS





Seeing Armaan checking her without blinking his eyes, Riddhima felt her cheeks getting heat... She try to control her blushing by biting her lower lips as she lower her eyelash not able to look at him for long... Armaan was so lost in her, he didn't realize he was making her blush with his gaze... Riddhima knows, Armaan might keep looking her whole night like that, so she thought to break his trace so they go and return before it gets too late...
'Armaan...' Riddhima whisper his name but it didn't bring him back to the world...

Armaan was just capturing her in his heart, where he can keep her safe and not let anyone reach her... Riddhima not being able to take his gaze for much time, just shake him holding his arm to break his trace knowing he wouldn't get bore watching her all night...
'huh...' Armaan asked as if someone make him wake in a beautiful dream...
'Chale, humein jaakar waapas aana hai... Pata nehi Bi Aana koh sambhal paenge ya nehi zyada waqt...' Riddhima said softly again lowering her eyelash...

Armaan smile hearing how Riddhima was getting worried for Aana, it was the first time that they were going out without Aana and Riddhima was worried for leaving her with Bi when its her bed time as they very well know she is used to be with either Armaan or Riddhima from last few months...
'Don't worry, Bi sambhalenge usse... Chale...' Armaan asked giving her side...

Riddhima smile with his action and move ahead as Armaan came and stood next to her while they make their way down from the stairs, they silently reach out and Armaan lock the door before they left... No one talk as they make their way to the destination where Armaan has choose for the night and Riddhima hasn't ask him where he was taking her as if she trust him that where ever he would take her, it would be not less then heaven for her...


20 MINUTES LATER


Armaan stop the car in front of a big mansion, Riddhima who was lost look around seeing the car stop... Armaan roll down his side of window and seeing him, the guard salute him and soon open the gate without saying or asking anything... Riddhima look around as they move inside, Armaan slowly drive knowing Riddhima was looking around the place as the path lights were on, showing the path clearly...

Riddhima wonder, why they are here and whom to this Mansion belong as it was just equally big as Armaan's Mansion... Just a small difference as it was use black shinning marbles and has a big garden in front of the house... Armaan stop the car at the entrace, as soon as he stop, guard came opening his side of door... Giving him the key, Armaan move to Riddhima side as he open the door for her...

Being lost, Riddhima came out as still she was looking at the Mansion with so many confusion in her mind... She don't understand why Armaan bring her there but she knows there must be a strong reason behind  Armaan choosing this place for the night... Armaan forward his hand to Riddhima who accept as they move to the entrace taking the steps which leads to the main door...

When they reach, Armaan left her hand and move his hand in his jeans pocket as he was wearing a white shirt with black jeans and jacket, looking handsome as ever... Taking a set of keys, Armaan open the door as the lights were on as if the place was ready for them... Armaan move inside and but stop not feeling Riddhima by his side... Armaan look back and saw Riddhima looking with confusion...
'Riddhima, andar aajao...' Armaan said...
'Armaan yeh...' Riddhima was cut by him...
'Aapko sab samajh aajenge, andar toh aao...' Armaan said holding her hand as he make her move inside...

Looking around, Riddhima move inside with Armaan in hand in hand... Mansion was beautifully design, it was alike the one Armaan and Aana was staying... As Riddhima eyes move around the place, they reach to the hall and Armaan stop... Riddhima was going to ask about the Mansion again, when her eyes fell on the big picture in front of them...

Riddhima recognized the faces in the picture, she felt her heart miss a beat understanding where they were standing... She look at Armaan who was staring at the picture with a soft smile on his face... Riddhima squeeze Armaan hand which was in her palm, Armaan look at her still with the smile on his face... Riddhima was still confused why Armaan had bring her here...

They stood silently look at the picture, as if Armaan was living the moment as a man was with his wife, son and daughter... Smile on their face reach to their eyes as it was sparkling showing the happiness... While the man was hugging the girl, lady was hugging the guy...
'Armaan hum yaha kyun...' Riddhima asked seeing Armaan didn't speak...
'Mujhe aapse kuch bata na ta, aur is jhaga se accha mujhe koi jhaga samajh nehi aaya... Aap jaante ho na Riddhima, mera is jhaga se kiya rishta hai...' Armaan asked looking at Riddhima...
'Jaanti hoon Armaan, aapko yaha aana pasand nehi toh kyun aaye mujhe lekar...' Riddhima asked...
'Kyunki mera koi kaam, in teeno koh bina dekhe nehi hote... Yeh sach hai mujhe yaha rehna takleef hone laga ta jab yeh log mujhe chod ke chala gaya... Lekin yeh sach toh badhla nehi jaa sakte na yehi mera family hai...' Armaan said...

Riddhima smile hearing him, they were standing in Mallik Mansion where he live with his family... Riddhima can understand what it must be going through in him at the moment... With happy memories, he felt the absent of his parents and sister is the reason he shift to another Mansion but whenever he miss them, he used to come here and try to live the moment he spend with his family...

Bi has tell her Riddhima about this Mansion and why they shift to another Mansion and she totally understand how Armaan must be feeling to be alone in such a big Mansion when the people he share the place left him behind, alone... Armaan didn't mention about this Mansion to Riddhima but she was surprise why he suddenly bring her here tonight...

Armaan close his eyes and trying to calm his emotion, Riddhima just stood next to him still holding his hand as her hand was in his hold... After calming himself, Armaan open his eyes again and look her giving a small smile...
'Chalo, main aapko. apna ghar dikhati hoon...' Armaan said...

Riddhima smile seeing how Armaan hold himself without letting the memories effect him too much... She knows, Armaan is a strong man from outside but he is very sensitive and soft from inside... He loves his family and now the only thing left with him was their happy memories...

Still not leaving Riddhima hand, Armaan move around the Mansion showing each and every room to her as he tell him which belongs to whom... Armaan tell her how he left everything the same as he didn't feel to change anything... Riddhima quietly hear everything Armaan was telling her, when he was talking about his family and the moments he share with them, Riddhima felt happiness in his voice... How his eyes were sparkling as if he remember everything as if it happen yesterday...

Finally, they reach up to the terrace... Before entering, Armaan look at her who gave him a smile which he return... Armaan open the door and ask Riddhima to move inside first... When Riddhima enter, Armaan enter behind her as Riddhima was lost in the place the moment her eyes laid there... Armaan stood at the door, watching Riddhima expression....

Armaan knows, Riddhima would love this place and the moment she step inside, she forget that Armaan was with her... Her smile got wide as she explore the huge terrace, which has grass carpet on the floor... A swing on one side while couch with tables were kept in the other side... Lights on the half wall around the terrace with gold railing for safety... Flowers pots were kept around the wall as soft fragrance spread around the place...

It short it was looking simple but beautiful, with the breeze around the place it gifts a warm feeling as they stay there in open air... Riddhima open her arms, feeling the wind as she close her eyes and turn around as if she was trying to enjoy the breeze kissing her face and bare arms... Armaan who was watching Riddhima action, smile seeing her acting like a small excited child...

Riddhima stop feeling someone gaze and very well know it was Armaan's who was at the door... She stop and look towards him, giving her best smile to him... Armaan return her smile and move inside as he stood next to her... Riddhima move ahead and stop near the railing, looking around the City...
'Aapko pasand aaya...???' Armaan asked standing next to her looking where she was looking...
'Bohot, kitni khubsurat haina yeh jhaga...' Riddhima said rubbing her arms as the winds kiss her bare arms...
'Bohot Khubsurat hai...' Armaan said looking at Riddhima as he mean to her...

They stood silently as they look their surrounding, Riddhima thought she should ask Armaan what he has decide knowing her identity... Thinking he might ask her to leave, with a thundering heart Riddhima look at Armaan who was looking forward at the sight in front of them...
'Armaan...' Riddhima called him to gain his attention...
'Hmmm...' Armaan asked not looking at her...
'Ek baat poochun aapse...' Riddhima asked...
'Poocho...' Armaan asked still not looking at her...
'Aapne kiya socha hai...' Riddhima asked again...
'Kis baare mein...' Armaan asked...
'Armaan, aap meri baare mein ab sab jaante haina...' Riddhima said...
'Haan jaanta hoon, aur ab ismein sochna kiya hai...' Armaan said...
'Armaan, aap mujhe abhi bhi Aana ke saath rehne denge...???' Riddhima asked...
'Aapko nehi rehna...???' Armaan asked her...
'Rehna hai lekin mujhe laga aap meri sacchai jaanne ke baad mujhe...' Riddhima was cut by Armaan...
'Nikal denge, yehi na...???' Armaan ask finally looking her...

Riddhima move her gaze away from him not able to meet his gaze, Armaan smile seeing how she turn her face... Armaan face her and make her face him holding her shoulder... Riddhima look at him as she wait for him to speak why he still is not firing her, she knows it wasn't her fault but still she thought he might not want her to work for him anymore...
'Aapki koi galati nehi ti Riddhima, toh main aapko kyun nikalun...' Armaan said...
'Toh aap naraz kyun hogaya mujhse...???' Riddhima asked him...

Armaan smile knowing, she would surely ask this question... Also he knows, it would be the right time to confess what he feels for her... After that, whatever her answer would be, he would accept without pressuring her to change or think about it... Armaan leave her shoulder and hold her hand in his making Riddhima look at their joint hands...
'Pehle mujhe bhi samajh nehi aaya, mujhe itna gussa kyun aaya jab ki galati mera ta... Mujhe pata hai mujhe aapse naraz hone ka koi hak nehi hai lekin anjaane mein, maine apne dil mein aapko aise jhaga de beite ki aapko dur jaane ka khayal se mujhe dar laga...' Armaan said...
'Armaan, yeh aap...' Riddhima was cut by Armaan who put his finger on her lips...
'Shhh, mujhe bolne doh Riddhima... Mujhe aaj aapko sab kuch kehna hai jo mere dil mein hai... Yeh sach hai maine koshish ki aapko meri dost bana ne ki but, anjaane mein mere dil mein aapke liyeh ek haas jhaga kab bangaye mujhe khud malum nehi pada... Main hamesha chahta ta, aisa koi aaye Aana koh accept kare dil se aur aapne apne vaade ke hisaabse mujhe kabhi moka nehi diya shikayat ka...
Riddhima, mujhe aapse pyar kab huva, mujhe malum nehi... Aapke paas koi experience na hote huve bhi, maine aapko apne ghar mein bhulaya... Pehle din se, mujhe aapki baatein sahi laga... Aapke baat par barosa huva, nehi pata main aapke liyeh kitna bada kaam kar diya apne ghar mein rakke...
Jab main aapko apna dil de hi diya hai bina yeh jaanne aap kis family se belong karte hai, toh yeh jaanke mein aapko kaam se kyun nikalun... Main aapko dil se nehi nikal sakte, toh ghar se kaise nikalun... Aana ke saath saath, mujhe bhi aapki aadat hogaya hai Riddhima...
Anjaane mein, maine aapko apni ghar mein chup ne ki jhaga diya... Saath saath apne dil mein bhi aapko chupa diya is hadd tak, ab aapko jaane nehi de sakti... Aapke bina rehne ki soch nehi sakte, ek din aapke bina guzarna nehi chahte...
Riddhima, Aana ne aapko uske pariwar ka hissa maanna hai... Uski ma banaya hai, jaise main uski pa hoon... Aur main uski ma uske paas hamesha rakhna chahti hoon... Kiya aap, Aana ki Ma aur mera biwi banke hamesha humhare saath rahenge...???' Armaan ask as he sit on his one knee still hold Riddhima hands...

By the time Armaan finish, Riddhima was having tears in her eyes... She has no idea that how much Armaan loves her till now... She has doubt that Armaan might have feelings for her but so deep, she never thought... Whatever he said, it reach deep down to her heart... The words he used, making sure that he don't like selfish, Riddhima felt bless that she got someone who love her so deeply...

Riddhima try to control her tears but she couldn't as it started to fall from her eyes on her cheeks... Armaan stood up leaving her hand seeing tears in her eyes... Riddhima look at his eyes to see pain taking over the love which she has seen a while ago seeing tears in her eyes, Armaan cup her cheeks as he softly wipes her tears... Feeling his love and care, Riddhima couldn't hold herself and next moment she was hugging him tight with her face hiding crook of his neck...

Armaan was surprise with her sudden hug, Riddhima hands were around his body on his back holding his jacket in her fist as she pull himself close to her as their body jammed on each other... Armaan one hand move on her shoulder while other hand on her bare back making Riddhima breath stuck in her throat feeling Armaan cold hand touching her bare skin...

After few second, Riddhima relax in his hold and her heart beat started to get normal... Armaan care her back softly, trying to make her calm as he gave time for her to digest the fact that he loves him... The Armaan Mallik, fall in love with a girl is not easy to believe as his life depend of Aana and his work...
'Riddhima...' Armaan call her when she didn't leave him...
'Hmmm...' Riddhima said still not coming out from the hug...
'I love to be like this, rest of our life but aap mujhe jawab nehi denge toh main kiya samjhun...???' Armaan asked...

Riddhima move out from the hug and Armaan look at her face... Tears line were on her cheeks, Armaan again wipes them making her look towards him... He smile as he wait for her to speak, Riddhima understood she needs to tell him what's in her heart now he has confess to her...
'Armaan, aap jaante haina main kyun yaha aayi hoon... Mujhe aur padna hai, kuch banna hai... Issiliyeh mein apni ghar, ma baap chodke, apni city chodke yaha aayi hoon...' Riddhima said...
'Jaanta hoon Riddhima, aur mere tarafse koi pressure nehi hoga... Aap khulke mujhe mana kar sakte ho...' Armaan said...
'Mujhe shaadi karne se koi problem nehi hai Armaan, na pehle ti, na ab hai... Maine Papa ke niyat ke wajahse woh shaadi nehi kiya... Aur ab toh, mujhe mana karne ke liyeh wajah bhi nehi hai...' Riddhima said smiling to him...
'Matlab aap...' Armaan stop not believing his ears...
'Haan Armaan, main Aana ki Ma aur tumhara biwi banungi... Issiliyeh nehi aapne mujhe help ki, mujhe raasta dikhaya apni manzil tak pochne ki... Balki issiliyeh, main bhi aap dono ke bina nehi reh sakte... Main hamesha sochti rahi, jo ladki aapne life mein aayenge woh bohot lucky hogi... Kyunki aap itne acche insaan ho, Aana se apne beti ke tarah pyar karte ho... Main jaanti hoon, aab har rishta itne acche se sambhalte ho... Aise insaan koh chodte kaise, jab woh insaan khud chalke humhare paas aaye...' Riddhima said touching her forehead against his...

Armaan smile hearing her answer, happiness sparkle in his eyes as he felt he got everything in his life... Armaan felt that Riddhima would accept him, as Aana has also become her family now... Also Armaan knows, how strong bond Riddhima share with Bi... Sometimes, it feels she is the one who belong there more then Armaan as Bi also listen to her more then him in every matter...
'I love you...' Armaan whisper close to her lips as they stood close...
'I love you too...' Riddhima said looking at his eyes as they share an eye lock...

They stood looking at each other for sometimes, then Armaan break the eye lock as he took her to the couch... Making her sit, Armaan move to the other side of the terrace and soon he was back with a food trolley... Riddhima smile seeing his attire, she was about to move when Armaan stop her...
'Aap beito, main serve karta hoon...' Armaan said...
'Lekin Armaan...' Riddhima was cut by him...
'Lekin wekin kuch nehi, aaj main serve karunga...' Armaan said...

Riddhima smile hearnig his caring voice, she sit like a good girl as he serve them and soon they were having dinner laughing and teasing each other... All this while, Riddhima just keep staring at him in between and Armaan saw how she had been getting lost in him... When they were done, Armaan stood up taking his mobile... Riddhima sit looking towards him, wondering what he is up to now... Smiling to her confuse expression, Armaan play a song and kept the mobile on the table forwarding his hand to her...


DIL MEIN CHHUPA LOONGA From WAJAH TUM HO


Tere saamne aa jaane se
Yeh dil mera dhadka hai
Yeh ghalti nahi hai teri
Kusoor nazar ka hai (x2)
(Riddhima look at him still confusion in her eyes, Armaan took her hand in his and move in the middle of the terrace... Leaving her hand, Armaan make distance between them as he sang the lyrics as if he is meaning every word of it... Armaan look at her from head to toe as he circle around her, Riddhima felt heat on her cheek feeling his intense gaze... Riddhima lower her eyelash, Armaan eyes move on every part of her body as he capture her in his heart...)

Jis baat ka tujhko darr hai
Woh karke dikha doonga…
(Armaan stood in front of her, Riddhima look back at him to meet her eyes with his... They saw love in each other eyes for one another... Armaan move close to her, pulling her in to his chest as her one hand go around his neck while others rest on his chest... Armaan one hand was around her waist as he hold her hand which was on his chest...)

Aise na mujhe tum dekho
Seene se laga loonga
Tumko main chura loonga tumse
Dil mein chhupa loonga (x2)
(Armaan slowly swing with Riddhima in his arms, their eyes were locked in each other... Armaan move his one hand on Riddhima face, making her close her eyes with his touch... Armaan was lost in her, he move his face to her as their breath mingle with each other breath...)

Tumse pehle, tumsa koi
Humne nahi dekha (x2)

Tumhe dekhte hi
Mar jaayenge
Yeh nahi tha socha
(Riddhima open her eyes as she felt Armaan move away, Armaan make distance between them and pull her towards him making her roll in his arms... Now Riddhima back was towards him, touching his chest as he hold her arms securely... Armaan hot breath kissing Riddhima bare shoulder making Riddhima close her eyes again as she felt her heartbeat racing fast...)

Baahon mein teri, meri
Ye raat thehar jaaye
Tujhme hi kahin pe meri
Subah bhi guzar jaaye (x2)
(Feeling his hot breath making havoc in her body, Riddhima turn in his arms facing him... Their face were inches away as they can feel each other breath... Lost in each other, Riddhima look Armaan with love in her eyes... She care his every face features with her fingers making Armaan close his eyes as he enjoy her soft touch...)

Jis baat ka tujhko darr hai
Woh kar ke dikha dunga…

Aise na mujhe tum dekho
Seene se laga lunga
Tumko main chura lunga tumse
Dil mein chhupa lunga (x2)
(Armaan open his eyes feeling Riddhima soft touch, he hold Riddhima hand which was caring his cheek... He bend down over her and was about to close the distance between their lips but Riddhima move her face to side and rest it on his shoulder making Armaan smile with her action...)

Dil mein jaage jazbaaton ko
Humne nahi roka (x2)
(Armaan hide his face on Riddhima bare neck, nuzzling on her neck... Riddhima shiver feeling Armaan hot breath kissing her bare skin, her hold got tight feeling Armaan nose softly caring her slender neck...)

Teri ore badhe kadmon ko bhi
Humne nahi toka
(Not able to take his passionate action, Riddhima move out from his hold... Riddhima move forward and Armaan move behind her as she went and stood near the railing with her hand resting on it as she try to control her fast heartbeat and breath...)

Tere saath bechaini ko bhi
Aaram sa milta hai
Doob ke tujhme hi toh
Dil yeh sambhalta hai (x2)
(Feeling Armaan close to him, just standing behind her back Riddhima put her weight on him as he put his arms on either side of her on the railing blocking her in his hold... Riddhima close her eyes again, as she take deep breath as she live the moment with him... To have him so close to her, she has a beautiful smile adoring on her lips...)

Jis baat ka tujhko dar hai
Wo kar ke dikha doonga
(Armaan put his chin on Riddhima bare shoulder, he slowly move her hair on one side of her shoulder leaving other bare to him... He place his lips on her skin, lingering it making Riddhima heart miss a beat as she felt her knees giving up with his sensation touch...)

Aise na mujhe tum dekho
Seene se laga lunga
Tumko main chura lunga tumse
Dil mein chhupa lunga (x2)
(Armaan turn her around feeling Riddhima stop breathing with his touch, he was so lost in her that he just hide her face on her neck making Riddhima bend backwards giving him more access on her long slender neck... Armaan hands were resting on Riddhima hands which was on the railing... Realizing their position, Riddhima open her eyes and taking her hand out from Armaan grip put in on his chest making his trace broke too...)

Dil mein chhupa lunga..
Dil mein chhupa lunga.


By the time the song end, both were in another world making new dreams to live with each other... Armaan move his face close to her and nuzzle on her cheek making Riddhima close her eyes and make her breath sharper... Armaan smile seeing how Riddhima was reacting to his touch, he move his hand on her cheeks and jawline making her look at him...

Looking at her eyes, Armaan move his thumb on her lower lips caring it making her gape with his action... Riddhima hold Armaan hand as it was making havoc in her body with his sensual touch... Armaan look at her lips which was shivering due to their closeness, he look at her eyes trying to understand if she wants what he wants at the moment...
'May I...' Armaan softly whisper...

Riddhima understand for what he was asking for permission, she felt her cheeks heating as it color change hearing his request... Riddhima lower eyelash, not able to meet his... Shy smile form in her lips as she try to control her fast heartbeat.. Armaan smile understanding her answer so he slowly move his face close to her and seal her lips with his as if promising he would love her rest of their life...
