PART 3 :Dil Se Dil Ki Mulaqaat(An AR FS )



Finally it was decided that Armaan and Riddhima would be getting married after three months as they got the till than... Everyone was happy that they would get enough time to get ready for the functions and they wouldn't need to hurry to make things best for Armaan and Riddhima... Their engagement would take place two months before their wedding so they got a month to prepare for their engagement too...


Nandini and Padma has already started to prepare a list which they should be doing for engagement as well as in marriage... They let Armaan and Riddhima decide where they would like to get married, Riddhima being the simple girl wanted to do all the ritual along with marriage in her house so no one deny as Armaan respect her decision knowing she is the one who would be leaving everything behind...

Their engagement was decide to hold on one of the Mallik's Hotel as both father's wanted to make it as grand as they could... There was no boundaries of happiness as they were ready to spend every single penny on their lovely children... Armaan and Riddhima didn't stop them knowing they wouldn't listen to them as they had already warn not to dare stop or speak on any preparation they do for them...

So not having any option left, Armaan and Riddhima let their parent's do the arrangement the way they wanted as they enjoying the phase of being lovers for the few months which was left before getting married... They spend as much as time with each other, go on dates and dinner on these months while helping their parents with preparation as they complete shopping for their engagement as well others functions which would take place two and half months after engagement...

Nandini and Padma didn't want any problem in last minute due to their dresses as it would be most important so Nandini has already given order for Riddhima's wedding lehenga while Padma gave order for Armaan's sherwani as they would gift it to their respective son and daughter in law...


2 WEEKS BEFORE AR ENGAGEMENT


Padma was waiting for Riddhima as she hasn't return from work, she has left morning to meet one of her client... Riddhima was to return back by evening five as she has to go ring shopping with Armaan but Padma got to know from Nandini that they couldn't go as Riddhima was stuck in work which was inform by Armaan who has return from his work around six in evening...

Padma has been trying to contact Riddhima but her mobile keeps ringing without getting any answer from her... Riddhima and Armaan engagement was just two weeks away and they haven't got rings yet, both mothers had been after them but they kept delaying saying they would do before the day...

When finally they ask them to go today itself making them promise they would do it but due to Riddhima work, they had to delay a day again which make Padma upset seeing how careless Riddhima was towards her engagement... So she was ready to confront Riddhima but as she was taking too much time to come back, now she was getting worried...

It was almost 9 now and Padma decide to call Shashank to let him know his daughter hasn't return from work and neither was answering her calls... Padma was about to dial Shashank when she heard the door bell which make her rush to see who it was... Padma saw both father and daughter busy discussing something while standing outside, from their expression Padma understood it might be serious...

Without greeting her, both move inside not giving a single glaze to her as if she was invisible to them... Padma close the door and bring water for them only to see both sitting with files in front of them as they bend over it... Padma forward the glasses but they deny it as they continue their discussion... Letting them do their work, Padma move to the kitchen to heat the food and make it ready hopping they would finished it in no time...

Half an hour past but Shashank and Riddhima was still busy in their work, Padma who was waiting for them had enough of their carelessness towards their health knowing they wouldn't dare stop it unless she stop them...
'Enough...' Padma said as she stood in front of them with her hands fold on her chest...

Shashank and Riddhima look towards her hearing her voice, they saw not so happy Padma and understood that they were in big trouble... They check the time behind Padma which was on the wall and seeing it was 9 30 pm, they gave her a nervous smile understanding no one can save them from Padma now...
'Abhi ki abhi dono jaakar fresh hojao... I want u both near dining table in fifteen minutes...' Padma said making both father daughter rush to their respective rooms...

Padma shake her head seeing how they run away knowing she wouldn't spare them if they delay reaching at dining table more than they had already... She went back to heat the food again as it was cold, by the time she put it back on the table both father daughter has come and took their seats...

When Padma serve them, they started to have it but after sometimes again both started to discuss making Padma angry as they weren't haven't dinner properly forgetting the work for sometimes... Feeling Padma gaze, Shashank look towards her and stop making Riddhima also look at her...
'Chup kyun hogaye aap, continue karo... Waise bhi aap dono ke paas kaam ke alawa kuch karne koh hai nehi right...' Padma said...
'Tum gussa kyun ho rahe ho...' Shashank asked...
'Sahi hai, ab main gussa bhi nehi ho sakti... Aapko kiya hai, aapke beti ki sagai tohdina ho rahi hai...' Padma said...
'Aise kyun bol rahe ho Padma...' Shashank said...
'Oh I m sorry, ab mujhe bolne ki bhi ijaazat nehi hai... Sahi hai, beti toh meri nehi sirf aapka hai...' Padma said...
'Mom, aapko kiya huva hai... Aise kyun bol rhe ho...' Riddhima asked seeing Shashank looking towards her helplessly...
'Of course, tum toh apne dad ke side hi lenge... Tik hai, main kuch nehi bolungi ab...' Padma said...
'Mom...' Riddhima call her but Padma ignore it and continue having dinner...

Riddhima look at Shashank not knowing what to do, neither of them get to know what make Padma so upset... Than they thought it was due to both working in home when they should be spending time with Padma and helping her in the preparation of Riddhima engagement...
'Sorry mom, batao kaha tak pocha meri engagement ki preparation...'Riddhima asked...
'Oh toh tumhe yaad hai tumhari engagement ke din paas aa rahi hai...' Padma said taunting Riddhima...
'Of course yaad hai mom, bhul kaise sakte hai... Aap 2 weeks se tayyari mein lagi hai...' Riddhima said...
'Meri tayyar karne se kiya hoga jab usko koh interest nehi hai jiski engagement hai...' Padma said...
'Padma, aapko kiya hogaya hai... Aise kyun keh rahi hai...' Shashank speak between them seeing Padma mood wasn't getting any better...
'Aap toh rehne doh Shashank, aap hai hi workaholic aur saath saath mein apne beti koh bhi bana diya... Pata nehi maine aisa kiya kardiya zindagi mein ki mujhe aise log milgayi...' Padma said...
'Are you on your monthly days...???' Shashank asked making Riddhima laugh out loud...
'Sorry...' Riddhima said controlling her laugh and look at her plate as she try to hide her smile...

Padma glare both of them, Riddhima look at her plate while Shashank gave her a innocent expression realizing he has damage everything with his own hands as he shouldn't have ask about it in front of Riddhima but seeing Padma foul mood, he couldn't hold himself back...
'Shut up, aapko sharam nehi aate Shashank... Aur tum bhi zyada mat haso Riddhima, tum aise apne kaam ki wajahse apni shopping late karti rahi toh hogayi tumhari sagai...' Padma said finally scolding both...
'Sagai ke liye shopping toh karli na maine, ab kiya lena hai...' Riddhima asked looking at Padma with a innocent expression...
'Ring nehi lenge toh pehnaenge kiya Armaan tumhe...' Padma asked reminding her...
'Oh no...' Riddhima said remembering she forgot about the shopping plan with Armaan...
'Oh yes, you are in deep trouble young lady... You didn't even inform Armaan, woh toh tumhari PA ne usko inform kiya you are busy in a meeting and he understood that you wouldn't be able to go so he didn't disturb you...' Padma said...

Shashank look at Riddhima who look back at him, Shashank understood it was the real reason that Padma was upset and they make it worst by bringing work in the house and ignoring her present being busy with it...
'I m so sor...' Riddhima was cut by Padma...
'Sorry mujhse nehi Armaan se kaho... Woh bechara apne kaam khatam karke tumhare liye inthizaar karta raha aur tum ho ki apne kaam mein busy hogayi aur use inform tak nehi kiya...' Padma said...
'He will understand mom...' Riddhima said...
'Dekho Riddhima, main jaanti hoon Armaan samajh jaenge... Lekin tum har baat aise karne lage toh usse bhi bura lagega... Woh kahenge nehi lekin tumhe uske feelings ka respect karna chahiyeh...' Padma said...
'I do mom, I didn't mean to do it...' Riddhima said...
'Pehle anjaane mein hojaate hai phir aadat si hojaate hai... Aur yeh sab rishte mein chalti rahi toh zyada waqt nehi lagte rishte tutne mein... Main jaanti hoon tumhare liye apni kaam kitna important hai aur Armaan ke liye bhi uta important hai... Lekin woh balance karne ki koshish kar raha haina toh tumhe bhi apni tarafse koshish karna chahiyeh... Main yeh nehi keh rahi hoon apni kaam chod de tum lekin use inform toh karna chahiyeh ta na... Accha nehi laga hoga usse tumhari PA se pata chala tum busy ti...' Padma says...
'Tumhari Mom sahi keh rahi hai beti, shuru shuru mein yeh baatein itna problem create nehi karenge shayad but aage jaake problem ho sakte hai... Aapko sambhalke rehna hoga, kyunki aap ek nayi zindagi aur nayi zimmedaari utna ne jaa rahe ho jiski ek galati se bohot problem ho sakte hai...' Shashank said...
'I know dad, main koshish karungi aisa phir kabhi na ho... Main apni tarafse Armaan ya uske parents koh kabhi shikayat ka moka nehi dungi...' Riddhima said...
'Aur yeh baat tum abhi se sahi kare toh accha hoga... Tum dono ke liye bohot important day hai, make it memorable so u can remember it in future...' Padma said...
'Ji mom, main Armaan koh call karke sorry boldunga... Aur hum kal pakka ring select karne jaenge...'Riddhima said...
'You better do that nehi toh main aur Nandini jaakhe tumhare liye ring select kardungi...' Padma said...
'Yeh tik rahega...' Riddhima said...
'Bilkul nehi, Armaan chahte hai tum dono ring saath mein select kare kyunki it would a symbol of your love for each other...' Padma said...
'Aur yeh sahi hoga, kyunki pehna toh tum dono koh hai toh pasand bhi dono ka hona chahiyeh...' Shashank said...
'Tik hai mom, dad... Main aur Armaan choose karlenge, happy...' Riddhima said as she finished her dinner...
'Bohot...' Padma said...
'Love you both, goodnight...' Riddhima said...
'We love you too...' Padma says...
'Goodnight beti...' Shashank said wishing her back...
'Dad, hum kal discussion continue karenge ok before leave for duty...' Riddhima said...
'Sure baccha, no hurry...' Shashank said as he also finished his dinner...
'Accha hai, ab dono jaakhe araam karo...' Padma said as she collect the empty plates...
'Main help kardun...???' Shashank asked...
'Rehne doh aap, aap help nehi meri kaam aur badaenge...' Padma said moving inside the kitchen leaving father daughter...
'Hayye, kiya pyar hai...' Riddhima said teasing them...
'Yehi toh pyar hai...' Shashank said...

Both started to laugh seeing Padma flush face as she heard both father daughter words, how much she try to be angry with them at the end they would change her mood... She loves her family and is scared to loose them as they are the reason that she is living a happy life today.. She never thought, she would get a husband like Shashank and two adorable daughters who is world to her but with god grace, she was a proud mother as well a wife who wish to be with her family rest of her life...


NEXT DAY


Armaan was waiting for Riddhima outside her office, he has come to pick her up to go to their ring shopping... Riddhima did call him the previous night and kept apologizing for forgetting about their plan, Armaan knows Padma must have scold her as he had told Nandini that they couldn't go due to Riddhima got busy with her work... Armaan really didn't mind it because he knows their profession might keep them busy unexpectedly...

Armaan believe that it can be him who couldn't follow their plans due to work, so he thought it was no big deal but their parents wouldn't understand it as they wanted to make everything perfect for their big day... Also they didn't blame their parents knowing they wanted the best for them... It wouldn't be every day that such important days come in their life but ones in a life time...

So finally, they were going for ring shopping today and Armaan has been waiting for Riddhima but some urgent work hold her back as she needs to finalized it today itself... Riddhima did inform him that she might be a little late but for sure they would complete their ring shopping today itself...
'Sorry sorry sorry...' Riddhima said as she took passenger seat next to Armaan...
'Its ok...' Armaan said as he started the car...
'Bohot der se wait kar raha ta na tum...' Riddhima asked putting the belt...
'Ab toh zindagi bar aise wait karne ke liye tayyar hoon but phir bhi aaj toh bas ek hour wait kiya toh koi badi baat nehi hai jaan...' Armaan said...
'Phirse tumhara nautanki shuru hogaya na...' Riddhima said as she took her mobile and checking it...
'Kiya karun yaar, tum toh mujhe bhav dete nehi... Kuch toh karna padega na tumhari attention paane ke liye...'Armaan said seeing her getting busy in her mobile...
'Jaanu, kehkar toh dekho... Main apni saari attention tumhe dedungi...' Riddhima said still looking at her mobile...
'Right, issiliyeh mere paas hokar bhi apni mobile pe busy ho...' Armaan said...
'Woh toh main bas check kar rahi ti kissi ne call ya msg choda hai ya nehi...' Riddhima said keeping back her mobile...
'Jab main yaha tumhari paas beita hoon toh koi aur tumhe call ya msg kyun karenge...' Armaan asked her...
'Kyunki sirf tum nehi ho meri life mein Armaan... Aur pata haina, mom toh baar baar call ti rehti hai...'Riddhima said...
'Bechari detective saahiba, apne ma se daant padte hai..' Armaan said...
'Aur nehi toh kiya, mujhe aisa lagta hai mujhe zyada mom detective ban chuki hai...' Riddhima said...
'Accha hai, tumse zyada usko mere fikar hai...' Armaan said...
'Matlab mujhe tumhare fikar nehi hai...' Riddhima asked...
'Maine aise tohdina kaha, main toh bas...' Armaan was cut by Riddhima...
'Tum toh bas kiya haan...' Riddhima said being not happy with Armaan words...
'Arey, naraz kyun ho rahe ho... Main toh bas mazak kar raha ta... Ab tumhare saath mazak bhi nehi kar sakte kiya...' Armaan asked...

Riddhima kept quiet hearing him, she don't know why she got angry on him for a silly matter... Works were getting on her nerve as she was trying to finish everything by next week as she wanted to relax herself before they get engage... Also they weren't getting much time to talk or meet due to their work, it was little difficult to manage things when both were equally busy in their work...

What if they didn't make a big deal about it but their parents, specially Riddhima's mother was not leaving a second to make her understand about her new relation with Armaan and the responsibilities she had to take ones she get married to him... Riddhima knows, Armaan parents wouldn't expect to get all the time from her as they very well know about her profession but for some reason, Padma was making sure that Riddhima understand every single thing related to the new relation she was going to share with the Mallik's...

Riddhima knows Padma was just being caring towards her, how much she loves her and want her to be the best for her in laws so they wouldn't get a chance to complain about her... It was just a mere concern from her mother side and she believe whatever Padma was telling her was right...
'Koi problem hai Riddhima...' Armaan asked breaking her trace...
'Huh... Nehi...' Riddhima said trying not to think about it further...
'Kuch toh problem hai, mujhe batao kiya pareshan kar rahi hai tumhe...' Armaan asked...
'Koi problem nehi hai Armaan, tum yaha kyun rukha...' Riddhima asked...
'Madam, issiliyeh toh bol raha hoon kuch toh baat hai... Tumhe realized nehi huva hum humhare manzil tak pochgaye...' Armaan said...

Riddhima look outside to see they had already reach the place, Armaan took off the seat belt and got down while Riddhima keep sitting... Armaan came to her side and open the door for her as Riddhima took off the belt and came out holding Armaan hand which he forward like a gentleman...
'Toh batao, kiya soch rahi ti tum...' Armaan asked as they move towards the shop holding each other hand...
'Armaan, maine kaha na koi baat nehi hai... Tumhare puchne se meri jawab toh nehi badlenge na...' Riddhima said as they enter the shop...
'Lekin tumhari aankhe toh kuch aur hi keh raha hai... Riddhima, tum jaante ho tum jhoot nehi bol sakte... Mujhe yeh samajh nehi aata tum koshish kiyun karte ho...' Armaan said...
'Aur tumhe aisa kyun lagta hai main jhoot bol rahi hoon...' Riddhima asked as they took seats...
'Kyunki tumhari chehre se saaf nazar aati hai tum kab jhoot bolte ho aur kab sach...' Armaan said...
'Kuch bhi bolte rehte ho tum, tumhare baatein khatam huva hai toh hum ring select kare...' Riddhima asked looking at the display which has several rings...
'Baatein toh kabhi khatam nehi hoga lekin pehle hum ring select karte hai uske baad continue karenge... Bhaiyya, accha sa aur unique ring dikhao mere hone wali mangetar ko...' Armaan said to the shopkeeper...
'Abhi dikhati hoon Sir, ek se ek mast ring...' Shopkeeper said...

Soon Armaan and Riddhima got busy selecting rings for each other, Riddhima who was staring at a particular ring felt someone gaze over her... Riddhima look around to see Armaan busy checking some other rings, she look around but saw no one who might be keeping eyes on them...
'Yeh kaisi hai...' Armaan asked making Riddhima look back to him...
'Huh...???' Riddhima said turning her attention towards him...
'Kiya huva, yaha waha kiya dekh rahe ho...' Armaan asked looking around to see every single pair present there was busy in their own work...
'Pata nehi, mujhe laga koi humhare taraf dekh raha hai...' Riddhima said...
'Phirse tu apni detective mode on kardi na... Kuch der ke liye toh off karde madam, tum apni hone wale mangetar ke saath shopping pe aaye ho...' Armaan said teasing her...
'Kiya karun, detective hai toh hamesha alert hi hoti hoon...' Riddhima said taking the ring from Armaan which he was holding...
'Pata hai, lekin pehle yeh kaam karlo... Phir araam se tum apni detective mode pe chali jaana...' Armaan said...
'Kyun, yeh kaam ke baad hum dinner pe nehi jaa rahi...???' Riddhima asked keeping the ring and took out the ring which she likes...
'Dinner pe jaana ta...??? Mujhe laga tum waapas kaam pe jaaenge toh maine already kissi aur ke saath planning bana diya..' Armaan said...
'What...??? Tum kissi aur koh lejaenge dinner pe... Toh uske liye ring bhi le lo...' Riddhima said putting the ring on Armaan palm...

Armaan smile seeing how Riddhima got jealous hearing that he has plan to go on dinner with someone else... How much Riddhima try to show it really didn't bother the few minutes they get to spend with each other, she really wish to be with him every moment they get...
'Chalo tum keh rahi hai toh main usko hi lejaungi...' Armaan said putting the ring in Riddhima's ring finger to see how perfectly it fixed in her finger...
'Mujhe kyun ring pehna rahi ho phir...' Riddhima asked trying to pull her hand out from his hold...
'Kyunki tum ho woh ladki main apne saath dinner pe le jaane ki planning ki...' Armaan said kissing her finger where he put the ring on...

Riddhima smile with Armaan action, she realized Armaan was trying to pull her leg very well knowing how much she wish to spend every single minute of her life with him but due to the case which was on her hand at the moment, most of her time spend in work and by the end of the day she would be too tired to even talk with him hardly for ten minutes...

Armaan understand how much hard working Riddhima was doing so he didn't complain knowing she was trying to finished the case in her hand before they find sometimes together before they get engage... Armaan knows Riddhima was feeling bad for not giving enough time to him but he has told her several times its nothing to feel bad as they need to balance their life in such matters...

Armaan look at Riddhima, winking at her seeing her expression... Armaan knew Riddhima got what he was trying to do, so intertwined their fingers... Armaan pull her hand close to his heart holding it there, Riddhima felt her cheeks burning with his action as they were catching some couples attention as well as shopkeeper who was sitting in front of them...
'Sir, toh yeh wali pack kardun...???' Shopkeeper asked...
'Madam pe acchi lag rahi haina...' Armaan asked as he look at the ring in her finger...
'Bohot khoob...' Shopkeeper said...
'Lekin Madam ki manzuri bhi toh chahiyeh... Toh bataiyyeh, aapko pasand hai ya koi aur dekhe...???' Armaan asked Riddhima...
'I love it Armaan...' Riddhima said looking at the ring...
'Chalo bhaiyya, madam ne manzuri de diya...' Armaan said...
'Ab tumhare liye ring select karte hai... Bhaiyya, iske liye ring dikhao...' Riddhima said turning her attention towards the shopkeeper...
'Mere liye kyun...???' Armaan asked...
'Sirf meri sagai hai kiya...??? Ring nehi lenge toh main tumhe kiya pehnaunga...' Riddhima asked...
'Oh, mujhe laga woh tumhare parents select kardiya hoga ab tak...' Armaan said..
'Jab tumne kaha tum meri pasand ka ring lena chahte hai toh tumhe kiya lagta hai woh log nehi chaahenge tum apne pasand ka ring le...???' Riddhima asked...
'Iski kiya zarurat hai...' Armaan said...
'Exactly, zarurat mujhe bhi nehi ti apne liye apni pasand ka ring lene ki lekin phir bhi li na... Ab tum chup chap apne liye pasand karlo nehi toh jo abhi maine pasand ki woh main yehi chodke jaungi...' Riddhima said warning him very well knowing it would work as Armaan wouldn't want it...

Armaan knows Riddhima mean it and she would do exactly what she just said so without arguing back, he started to look at the rings just now Shopkeeper has kept in front of them... Armaan keeps looking at Riddhima and seeing her eyes were stuck in one ring which even he likes, he took it out showing it to her... Riddhima smile and put it in his ring finger to see it fitted perfectly...

Armaan ask through his eyes what she thinks about the ring, Riddhima blink her eyes answering his unspoken question making Armaan smile with his dimples... Armaan ask the shopkeeper to pack both rings, Riddhima got a call from her father so she move away from them to answer it while Armaan payed for the rings...

After paying, Armaan joins Riddhima who end the call... They left to have dinner as Armaan has already book table for them... Armaan has already inform his parents about it before picking Riddhima to ring shopping... As Riddhima got to know about the plan few minutes ago, she has inform her father who has called to check when she would be reaching as her mother was asking if they had get their rings...

Also Riddhima inform that they had got their rings and if there is anything else left for them to do... As everything was done for engagement, Shashank ask her to enjoy her time with Armaan... Riddhima told him she would reach home after dinner so not to wait for her as they would be tired after a long day...


AFTER AN HOUR


Armaan and Riddhima was having dinner, talking about their work as well as the preparation going in their house for their wedding... When they were done with dinner, they move out and went to the near by beach as they walk near the water with bare foot... Armaan was holding Riddhima close to him by her waist as they enjoy the water kissing their bare foot and breeze kissing their face...

They were enjoying their time as they talk about the changes that will come in their life once they got married... Also Riddhima was asking if he is going to renovate his room as now only he wouldn't be in that room, she also would be sharing it with him...
'Tum kaho toh main ek naya ghar bhi le leti hoon, keh kar toh dekho jaani...' Armaan said facing her as they stop walking...
'Very funny Armaan, main toh bas issiliyeh pucha kyunki woh kamra tumhare taste ke according hoga right... Where everything would be a guys taste, not a couple taste...' Riddhima said...
'Ab main waha rehta hoon toh mere taste ke according design karwaya hoga... Maine socha nehi mere life ke saath saath ab tum mere kamra bhi share karenge...' Armaan said...
'Ab tumhe samajh aaya hai toh kiya socha hai tumne...' Riddhima asked...
'You are right, we should renovate it... I will talk mom and dad, uske baad u can come and see my room before we decide what we can do about it to make perfect for us to spend rest of our life together...' Armaan said pulling Riddhima closed to him...
'Right, maine tumhe yaad nehi dilaya hoti toh tum sochenge bhi nehi...' Riddhima said putting her hands on his chest...
'Ab tumne yaad dilaya na, main humhare liye jaisa tum chahte ho waisa sab kuch karunga...' Armaan said...
'Armaan, main nehi chahte sirf meri pasand se tum apna room change kare... Bas tohda meri pasand aur tohda tumhara pasand chahiyeh mujhe kyunki hum dono koh saath rehna hai...' Riddhima said...
'I know baby and of course, how can I let only you decide everything alone...' Armaan said...
'Waise toh u might but I wouldn't take the advantage because its not only me who is going to adjust in a new place, you also had to adjust with a new person...' Riddhima said...
'Haan lekin main apne ghar mein hoga aur tum... Tum apni sab kuch chodke ek nayi ghar mein, nayi log ke saath rehne ke liye aayenge... Toh mujhse zyada, tumhara hak hai yeh decide kare tum ek nayi ghar koh kaise apni pasand se complete karenge... Jaha tum comfortable rahe, jaise tum apne ghar mein rehte hai...' Armaan said...
'Armaan, mujhe sirf humhare kamre mein tohda badlav chahiyeh... Aur kuch nehi kyunki maine tumhe aur tumhare parivar koh jaise ti, waise hi apna ya hai... Aur rahi baat comfortable hone ki, jab tum saath ho toh main uncomfortable kaise ho sakti hoon... Mujhe pata hai, tumhare saath saath tumhare parents koh bhi main kitna pasand hoon... Shayad jitna tum pyar karte hai usse tohda kam, lekin pyar toh bohot hai unlogo ke dil mein mere liye...' Riddhima said...
'Sahi kaha tumne, aur tumhe pata hai aisa kyun hai...' Armaan asked...
'Shayad issiliye kyunki tumhare ghar mein koi ladki nehi hai... Uske koi beti nehi hai aur ab uske woh khuwaish meri aane se pura hoga right...' Riddhima said...
'Bilkul sahi guess kiya tumne, Mom kabhi kehti nehi hai yeh baat lekin mujhe pata hai Mom kyun chahte hai main shaadi karlun...' Armaan said...
'Toh phir dusre bacche ke liye koshish kyun nehi kiya...???' Riddhima asked...
'Kyunki mere paida hone ke baad Mom ke health mein kuch issue aagayi jiski wajahse Dad nehi chahta ta dubara woh pregnant ho... Doctor ne khud kaha Mom ke liye risk hogi issiliye dubara koshish nehi kiya... Mom se zyada toh Dad ne is baat koh serious liya kyunki woh Mom koh khona nhi chahte...' Armaan said...
'Dad, Mom se bohot pyar karte haina...' Riddhima asked...
'Bohot zyada...' Armaan said...
'Aur tum...' Riddhima asked...
'Main kiya, of course I love them too...' Armaan said...
'I mean, if anything like that happen in our life... Would you choose me over our child...???' Riddhima asked him making Armaan shocked...

Armaan never thought Riddhima would be thinking something like this... He didn't tell her this to make her think about it like this but he somewhere felt that she was just curious to know what his answer would be if in future they face something like this... A child make two person complete and Armaan understand how much a child is needed in a married life...

Riddhima smash herself mentally for asking such stupid question, don't know why but she just got too curious to know will Armaan do the same which his father has done for his mother... The love between them shows how much they want each other in their life and Riddhima wants the same in their life too...
'I m sorry...' Riddhima said realizing it might be difficult for him to choose...
'Nehi Riddhima, I love kids too but I wouldn't put ur life in risk for our child... I love you Riddhima and if we are lucky enough to have our own kids than god will surely make it happen...' Armaan said...
'I love you too...' Riddhima said...
'I love u more...' Armaan said putting his forehead against her...
'I love you most...' Riddhima said making Armaan smile...

They stood like that for sometimes enjoying the cold weather as the night past... Both were looking at each other admiring with lots of love in their eyes for each other... Armaan eyes were moving on Riddhima face feature while Riddhima wasn't behind either... It was first time that they were admiring each other so closely and it makes their heartbeat fast realizing how they got so lucky to have each other...

As they stood staring at each other forgetting the world around them, Riddhima eyes fell on Armaan manly lips... Riddhima look back at his eyes to see it was focus on her lips but next second he also move his eyes to look at her eyes as their orbs meet... Riddhima saw the pool of desire in his eyes but was hesitating to move ahead not knowing what might she think...

Riddhima knows it wouldn't be wrong because they have already decide to spend rest of their life with each other... Also they have realized the love which they can never feel for anyone else as it was much more strong for each other... While Riddhima was thinking how strong her feelings were towards Armaan, Armaan was thinking if it would be right to claim her as his...

Armaan was sure of his feelings towards her but will she be happy if Armaan do such thing when they weren't engage or married... Armaan knows how much it means to a girl that to share a single kiss before engage or marriage but only he didn't remember that Riddhima wasn't like other girls... She was independent and bold too, mature enough to understand what's right and wrong...

Armaan was lost in his thought when he felt something move on his lips... First Armaan didn't understand what was happening, it was something soft and delicate... When finally it sink in his mind, Armaan felt a shiver run down in his spine making his heartbeat banging on his rib... Armaan has always think how it would feel but when today finally it was happening, his mind was numb...

Riddhima who kiss him softly move out when Armaan didn't respond her kiss, she thought he didn't like it but seeing his lost expression Riddhima realized it went like a shocked to him.. Riddhima giggle seeing his expression as once again she make him surprise with her bold move...

Armaan trace was broke hearing her giggle, he was still lost in the small kiss or just a peck from Riddhima... Seeing Riddhima did enjoy it, Armaan pull her closed knowing Riddhima wouldn't regret if he kiss her back... Riddhima got shocked feeling Armaan lips back on her lips, she wasn't expecting Armaan to kiss her but feeling his lips moving on her lips slowly Riddhima gave in as she enjoy the kiss as much as Armaan was enjoying the moment...

Both felt a new emotions in their body, sparkle every where around them as if it was a magic... Their bodies touch on each other, breath mingle as they taste each other saliva... They pull the other as close as they wasn't satisfied how close they were already like one body... Armaan one hand was around her waist while other hand move on her nape holding her face close, Riddhima both hands were around his neck with one hand in his hair holding it in her fist keeping him close...

Neither of them were willing to leave each other but due to lack of oxygen they had to break the kiss... Armaan hide his face on her neck while Riddhima did the same as their breath were sharp... They were trying to believe, they had really share their first kiss and that too under the moon in open air near the beach which is a romantic place for lovers...

Smiles were adoring on their lips, neither of them were willing to leave the other as they felt so right being in each other arms... It seems like it was the best place in the whole world and they belong there only... Armaan was the first one to break the hug as he remember something... Checking the time, he took something from his pocket...

Riddhima who was looking at Armaan thought why he has taken the ring box than thought it might be the ring which they had got for him... As it would be from bride side, Riddhima was to take it with her but when she forward her hand to take it Armaan took it back making her confused...
'Yeh woh ring nehi hai jo humne mere liye liya...' Armaan said very well understanding what Riddhima must be thinking...
'Phir yeh...' Riddhima asked looking at him...

Armaan smile at her and open it showing her another ring which she didn't choose for her... Riddhima got more confused seeing this new ring as she didn't remember choosing it... Riddhima look at him as if asking which ring it was and to whom it belongs... Armaan took the ring and hold her hand slipping it in to her ring finger...
'Armaan yeh...' Riddhima was cut by him...
'Promise ring hai Riddhima...' Armaan said making Riddhima surprise...
'Armaan...' Riddhima was again cut by him...
'Riddhima, I just want you to know I m committed to you and will love you forever...' Armaan said...
'I know Armaan and I love you too... Iski zarurat nehi ti Armaan, humhari sagai hone wali hai kuch din mein...'Riddhima said...
'I know Riddhima but I felt I should give you something... Which you can keep with you and what else could be valuable than this...' Armaan said...
'Very clever Mr. Mallik, why I have a feeling that you just want me to have this so people knows I m taken and only yours...' Riddhima said trying to tease him...
'Oh no, you got me there... I knew its not safe for me when you are a detective...' Armaan said making a helpless face...
'Didn't I tell you, You can never hide anything from me...' Riddhima said proudly...
'And didn't I tell you, I don't want to hide anything from you my love...' Armaan said...
'Good for you... Ab chale, bohot der hogayi...' Riddhima said moving out from his arms...
'Not so soon Mrs. To Be Mallik...' Armaan said pulling her back in his arms...
'Ab kiya huva...' Riddhima asked...
'Maine itna accha gift diya hai, mujhe return gift toh milna chahiyeh na...' Armaan said...
'Oh toh tumne mujhe issiliye yeh diya...' Riddhima asked looking at the ring...
'Waise pehle toh aisa koi iraada nehi ta lekin abhi jo kuch der pehle huva, uske baad toh u know...' Armaan said smirking as he was talking about their kiss...
'Oh woh kiss, kyun... Kuch zyada accha laga...' Riddhima asked..
'Bohot zyada... I feel as if I was in a magic land... Ek baar aur please...' Armaan said requesting cutely...

Riddhima smile hearing his demand, she never thought Armaan would asked but when he had she thought to not letting him get it so easily... Armaan wait for Riddhima but seeing her standing, he try to understand what was going in her mind...
'Of course, why not Mr. To Be Husband...'Riddhima said...

Armaan got happy and he move his face close to her but next second she push him making him fall in the water... Armaan wasn't expecting this so he lose his balance was drain in the water... Riddhima laugh seeing him, Armaan understood why she agree so easily and how she wasn't going to give it so easily... Armaan stood up and Riddhima understood her life was in danger seeing Armaan expression...

Before Armaan could get hold of her, Riddhima run towards the entrance to exist from the beach but before she could reach the car, Armaan got hold of her making her laugh out loud feeling Armaan pull her off from the ground... Armaan turn around holding Riddhima making her laugh more and than make her stand turning her around to face him...

Riddhima was trying to control her fast heartbeat as well breath when she felt Armaan lips stealing her lips taking her in to another passionate one... Armaan smile feeling Riddhima wasn't responding as it was all of sudden but when Armaan bit her lips softly, Riddhima groan as she started to respond to the kiss passionately without caring about the time or place...


DAY OF AR ENGAGEMENT


Everyone was present in the hotel where the engagement was going to take place, Mallik welcome the Gupta as they had reach before Riddhima who would be coming directly from the palor with Anjali who has gone with her to give company to her as well as not to leave her alone.. Armaan was eagerly waiting for Riddhima as the time was getting near...

Almost every guest has reach but Riddhima and Anjali hasn't come yet, Atul had call them to check how much time they would take... Anjali has inform him that they had left from the parlor and would reach the venue in no time... So everyone was waiting for them as they attend the guest and make sure they were comfortable as they had sometimes left to start the ceremony...

While everyone was busy catching up with each other, Armaan keep looking towards the entrance... Armaan eyes were eagerly waiting to see one glimpse of his love, already her imagination was in his mind thinking how gorgeous she would be looking in the gown he has gifted her...

As they had decide a dress code, three pieces for guys while gowns and saari's for girl's and ladies, Armaan has got a red gown with silver design on it for Riddhima on this special day... It was his favorite color and he wish to see her in that color knowing how beautiful she would look in that color which will match to her fair skin... Armaan believe that every color suits her but specially red as it was his favorite color...

Time was getting close and now only not Armaan but Shashank and Padma also started to get worried as their daughter's were being late... Atul has inform that they were on their way to the venue but it has been 15 minutes now but still they hasn't reach... Worried lines were visible in their forehead as they try to reach Anjali and Riddhima but for some reason, neither of them was answering their call and next moment their phone was out of rang as if it was switch off...

Securities were tight outside the hotel and guest had been checking before they were lead inside the hall where the ceremony took place... As they were rich and famous people, Shashank don't want anything to happen in his daughter engagement as anyone might try to harm them as they have many enemies due to their work... That is the reason that Shashank didn't let Riddhima go alone because she had been a great help in their work and Shashank knows it would be risk for her as well how much it's for him...

When Riddhima and Anjali didn't reach, Armaan parent's also started to get worried... They ask Riddhima parent's and seeing them worried, they knew something wasn't right... Shashank call his force to take help from them and get to know that they had spotted Anjali car not far from the venue, but to their shocked Riddhima wasn't with her and Anjali was unconscious...

It came like a bomb to Shashank and Padma that their one daughter was unconscious while other daughter was missing... Padma sudden cry catch the guest attention when Shashank inform about their daughter's to her, even Armaan who was sitting in the stage came down to check what was happening...
'Kiya huva dad...' Armaan asked seeing how worried Shashank was and Padma crying...
'Riddhima aur Anjali kaha hai Shashank...' Karan asked as Nandini move to Padma who was crying and hugs her to calm her down...
'Woh Karan, shayad kissi ne Riddhima koh kidnapped karliya...' Shashank said rubbing his temple being worried about his daughter's...
'Aur Anjali...???' Nandini asked...
'Woh mili hai lekin behosh hai, humein jaldi hospital jaana padega...' Atul said who took out the information from one of the officer who was helping Shashank tracking Anjali and Riddhima whereabouts...
'Yaha toh saara guest bhi aachuke hai...' Padma said..
'Aap log chinta mat karo, main aur Nandini sambhalenge... Aap log jaiyye, hum bhi guest ke jaane ke baad aajaate hai...' Karan said...
'Dad, main bhi chalta hoon aap logo ke saath...' Armaan said as his heart was banging on his chest hearing Riddhima being missing...
'Haan beta, tum jao aur humein inform karte rehna...' Nandini said making Padma stand up...

Soon Gupta's, Atul and Armaan left while Karan handle the guest as they started to talk among themselves seeing others leave.. Karan apology to them and inform them about the function has been call off due to an emergency happen in Gupta family... Guests kept wondering what has happen and some questions Karan but neither he or Nandini tell them the truth because they weren't aware of what has really happen...

So once again they both apology from the guests telling them they were also not fully aware what has happen but nothing was right at the moment... Knowing there must be some serious emergency in the family, guests started to leave but Karan asked them to have dinner before they leave as the food has been already served...


HOSPITAL


Doctors were checking on Anjali while officers were standing outside the ER, they were trying to know the whereabouts of Riddhima but they didn't get any information yet about her... Also they were waiting for the Gupta's and Atul to come as they were Anjali's family and they can't leave unless a member from her family didn't reach...

As Shashank is an Inspector, officers were on alert knowing his daughter has gone missing while one was laying unconscious on hospital bed... They didn't know what has happen so they were waiting for Anjali to come around so she could tell them what happen with her and where Riddhima was...
'I don't care how many officers we need, make every single person work until we find Shashank Sir daughter, got it...' Officer said as he cut the call...
'Officer...' Shashank call as he reach to him...
'Sir...' Officer says saluting him...
'Did you find anything about Riddhima...???' Shashank asked without delaying...
'No Sir, we are trying our best...' Officer said...
'What do you think Officer, was is an accident or a plan...' Armaan asked...
'Aap...???' Officer asked not recognizing him...
'Armaan, Armaan Mallik...' Armaan said introducing himself to the officer...
'Riddhima ki hone wala mangetar...' Shashank said...
'Sorry Sir, but can't say anything at the moment... We are trying to find Ms. Gupta, if we didn't find her anywhere near we found Mrs. Joshi maybe someone has kidnapped her and their plan got successful... We are waiting for Mrs. Joshi to gain conscious as she was with Ms. Gupta and if it a kidnapping, surely the kidnappers would call you Sir or maybe to Mr. Mallik...' Officers says as he has recognized Armaan being the best lawyer of the city...
'Officer, do everything you can... I want my Riddhima as soon as possible...' Armaan said...
'We are trying our best Mr. Mallik, we wouldn't stop unless we find her and that too safely...' Officer said...

Officer left letting one of the commander with Gupta's, Atul and Armaan who waited outside the ER for the doctor or nurse to come out so they could get information about Anjali... Atul was walking in front of the room while Shashank stood with Padma who was praying to god to keep her both daughter safe... Armaan was also standing near the room with worried lines appear in his forehead, thinking where Riddhima could be and how she must be...


DARK ROOM


Riddhima felt her head heavy as she come around, she try to adjust her eyes to the light which was over her but rest of the place was dark not letting her recognized where she was... Riddhima try to remember what happen and when the flashback came across her mind making her realized she was kidnapped, one person came in her mind as she knows he must be waiting for her as it was there engagement toady...
'Armaan...' His name came out from Riddhima mouth as tears form in her eyes...


FLASH BACK START  (RIDDHIMA'S POV)


Today was the day, officially I would be getting engage to Armaan... I had been waiting for this day from the day we have confess to each other... I never thought, I would end up falling in love him so deeply that now I have already started to imagine my life with him... I never realized, how much important Armaan got in my life and how I have started to built my future with him...

I still remember, the day we went for ring shopping... How he got me the promise ring when he don't need to get it because I know how much he loves me and want me in his life but his this little gesture make my heart lost to him once again, realizing I was must more important in his life than he is in my life...

From the day we have confess our feelings to each other, its not much that Armaan do such things for me or should I say for us... Making me happy make him happy, its what he says and I believe, I see a sparkle of happiness in his gorgeous orbs which shows his happiness was truly connect with my happiness...

His single gesture prove it how deeply he is in love with me and I m overwhelmed to have someone like Armaan in my life who loves me for whom I m... He used to say I make him surprise him with my action and he is not behind either, his little things make me the luckiest girl as I never thought someone like Armaan, being lawyer in profession could be so lovable...

I still remember, a night before how he demand to meet him... I kept asking him why he wants to but he didn't tell me unless I meet him, everyone was busy doing last minute preparation as next day it was our engagement... It wasn't just the two of us going to be start a new phase in our life but our families too would be a part of it and they surely was very excited about it...

So just for few minutes, I went to meet him outside the garden of my house as he has come all the way so I wouldn't have to go out alone... The moment I went in front of him, he was lost like usual as I was wearing a body fit top and jeans which I normally not wear in front of any outsider...
'Back to earth Mr. Mallik, you can check me out later...' I said trying to bring him back him out from his dream land...
'Wow, I mean why I never see you in this avatar before...' Armaan said still drooling over me...
'Because I never wore this kind of cloths in front of outsiders...' I said trying to control my cheeks color, for some reason was changing with his comment...
'Than why tonight u have come like that in front of me...' Armaan asked pulling me close to him...
'Because we are in my house and tomorrow we are officially going to be engage so I think it's ok for me to come in front of you like this...' I said winking at him making him grin with my answer...
'Very clever Mrs. To Be Mallik...' Armaan said trying to steal a kiss but I stop him putting my both hand on his chest...
'Not now Armaan, say why u wanted me to meet you here at this time...???' I asked...
'Oh yes, here...' Armaan said forwarding a box to me...
'And what is this...???' I asked holding it...
'Open and see it...' Armaan said...
'First leave me...' I said as Armaan was still holding me...
'Can't you just check it staying like this...' Armaan said...
'Sadly, I can't Armaan...' I said trying to come out from his hold...
'Ok...' Armaan said leaving me...

It make me surprise that how easily Armaan let go off me, but next moment I felt him turning me around and hugging me from behind... I smile feeling him so close as he rest his chin on my shoulder... How can it happen that Armaan leave me so easily without any demand... I knew something must be going in his mind and it was prove the moment he hugs me again as he pull me close to him...

I look at him to see a grin on his face, he kiss my cheek and nuzzle taking my scent making me shiver under his hold... My eyes got closed feeling his hot breath kissing my cheeks, goosebumps rise in my skin with my heartbeat raise making it bang on my rib...
'Now open it jaan...' Armaan said resting his chin on my shoulder...

I knew he must have felt change in my body when he got close to me, but ignoring it Armaan try to make my attention turn back to the gift... He always make sure that I feel comfortable in such situation and I m happy that he think about my feelings first before he do anything... So not trying to think much about our closeness and how it was making difficult for me to stand on my feet...

I open the box to see a beautiful red gown in it this with matching wearings and a bracelet... It was simple yet beautiful and I fell in love with it the moment my eyes laid on it... I care the dress softly as if it get mess up due to my one touch...
'It's so beautiful...' I whisper not believing how beautiful it was...
'Not more than my love...' Armaan said kissing my temple...
'But Armaan, why you got it for me...' I asked turning in his hold...
'Because I want you to wear it in our engagement... I wish to see you in this dress Riddhima, in my favorite color...' Armaan said holding me again by my waist close to him...
'But...' I was cut by him...
'No but, I know you will say u already have got ur dress but its my wish to see you in this dress Riddhima... In my choice as you are love of my life... Please Riddhima, can't you do this much for me... Mom and Dad has already final your wedding dress, their choice... Can't I choose dress for our engagement...' Armaan said making me fall in love with him again...
'Awww... I love you Armaan and I will surely wear it...' I said hugging him, keeping my head on his chest...
'I love you too Riddhima... I know you will make the dress more beautiful by wearing it because you make anything worth by wearing it...' Armaan said kissing my forehead...
'Thanks for the compliment, Mr. Mallik but I don't think everything look goods on me...' I said moving out looking at his face...
'You do my love, you do... I know you wouldn't believe it but its true... Also its true that sometimes we think we aren't good enough but in others view it will be different... Like its different in my view, whatever you wear... You look gorgeous because its not about the dress, its about you... Your kindness, pure heart make everything beautiful just like your heart...' Armaan said...
'Not bad lawyer saahab... I never knew you could be so romantic...' I said putting my hands around his neck...
'You have never seen much related to me Ms. Detective Gupta... After we get married, it would be all my pleasure to show you the romantic plus passionate side of mine darling...' Armaan said touching his forehead against mine...
'And it would be my pleasure, to share every single moment with you...' I said pulling him close to me as my eyes got close thinking how eagerly I was waiting for that day...

My trace was broke when I heard someone call my name, I look around to see I was sitting in front of the mirror in palor... Ready for the day finally that Armaan was going to put the ring in front of others announcing that I belong to him...
'All set...???' Anjali Di ask coming as she was ready too...
'Haan Di, main kabka tayyar hoon...' I said standing up correcting my dress...
'Oh ho, badi jaldi hai aapko detective saahiba...' Anjali Di said...
'Kyun nehi Di, after all aaj meri engagement hai...' I said making my way towards Anjali Di...
'Right, engagement hai sirf issiliye ya Armaan koh dekhne ka jaldi hai...' Anjali Di said teasing me...
'Of course usse bhi toh dekhna hai, kyun aapko Atul Jiju se nehi milna...' I asked teasing her back...
'Uff, koi tumhe tease bhi nehi kar sakte... I mean tease karun toh bhi ulta tum usse tease karenge...' Anjali Di said as she make her way out from the room...
'Toh aap mujhe tease karte kyun ho, jab aapko pata hai main dusre ladkiyon jaise nehi hoon... Jo aapke tease karne se, nazre jhuka ke sharmaungi... Aise...' I said as I move out with Anjali Di and stop trying to act just like a blushing bride to be..
'Nautanki, chale ab... Sab inthizaar kar rahi hai...' Anjali Di said...
'Sab ya Atul Jiju...' I asked again teasing her...
'Tu kabhi takenge nehi na mujhe tease karte karte...' Anjali Di said...
'Bilkul nehi, kyunki aaj bhi aap nayi naveli dulhan ke tarah jo sharmati hai...' I said pinching her cheek...
'Kuch bhi, main nehi sharmati...' Anjali Di said as we reach out to our car...
'Woh toh aapke chehre pe dikh rhi hai...' I said as we sit and zoom out to go to the venue where my engagement was going to be held with Armaan...

I was enjoying teasing Anjali Di seeing her cheeks color change, Anjali Di try not to let it effect her but I know my single works were making it difficult for her to control her blushing... I knew, it would be impossible for her to make me blush like she is doing with the name of Atul Jiju... If anyone can make my cheeks color change, than it would be only Armaan... His one gaze make my cheeks color turn crimson, I don't understand how it happens but it do happens...

Suddenly a van came in front of our car making Anjali Di press the break on time before it crash to the van... We both was shocked with the sudden appear in front of our car, before we could understand what was happening the car door was open and someone drag me out from the car... I heard Anjali Di shouting my name but someone put cloth on my mouth and nose making me unconscious...

It was so suddenly that I couldn't defend myself or help Anjali Di... I didn't know what happen but felt everything goes blank around me with many people shouting and Anjali Di calling my name again and again... I heard one of them shouting, 'Shut her...' before everything went totally blank around me...


FLASH BACK END


Riddhima heard some noises and footsteps, she understood she wasn't alone there so she acted like she was still unconscious just to know what was happening around her and where she was, whom these people were who had kidnapped her... What they want and why she was there target as she didn't see Anjali anywhere near her or did they kidnapped her too and kept her in another room...

So many questions were roaming in her mind but she kept herself calm as she knows only than she would know the reason behind her being kidnapped on her engagement day... Riddhima knows, it would be surely related to something she had done or maybe her father had done which has make so much enemy out there who surely would demand for something to release her...

Door was open and some people came inside talking as some hold gun... Riddhima kept herself calm and one eye open just to check if they realized she has gain conscious or not.. One man came close to her and seeing this, Riddhima close her eyes and acted to fooled them and it works as he inform the others that she was still unconscious...
'Boss, ab kiya karna hai...' One of the guy asked...
'Ab tak toh Inspector Shashank Gupta koh pata chal chuka hoga, uske pyari beti kidnapped hogayi hai...' Guy said who the first one refer as boss...
'Toh humein usko call karke apna demand batana chahiyeh na...' Second guy said...
'Itni jaldi nehi, usne humein itna torture kiya hai... Tohda pareshani usse bhi utana chahiyeh apne beti se milne ke liye... Aur yeh mat bhulo, humein sirf Shashank se dhushmani nehi hai... Usne mere bhai koh pakadwaya zarur hai, lekin asli dhushmani toh humein Armaan Mallik se hai...Uske wajahse mera bhai umar barke liye jail chala gay...' Boss said...
'Ok Boss, lekin is ladki ka kiya kare...' First guy asked...
'Khaatirdaar karo iski, humhare mehmaan hai aur pata haina mehmaan bhagwaan samaan hote hai... Aur jab tak humhare maange pure nehi hote, isko humhare saath rehna hoga... Nazar rakko ispe aur iske gharwale pe... Aur haan, Armaan Mallik pe bhi...' Boss said...
'Yes boss...' Second guy said...

They left making sure that Riddhima was tight carefully on to the chair which they has make her sit... Cloth was on her mouth so she wouldn't be able to shout... Once they were out from the room and door was closed, Riddhima open her eyes... She didn't recognized who it was but she has got to know why they had kidnapped her... For revenge, the guy was their enemy... Not only her father but they were enemy of Armaan too...

Riddhima never thought, one day she would have to bare it due to her father and Armaan profession but she wasn't scared because she knows, whatever her father and Armaan has done it was necessary to do it... How can they let the criminal roam around the country freely when they are need to be punished for their crime... It was their duty to make them get punished for their crime..

Riddhima was only thinking, what others might be going through to know she has gone missing... Also she knows, her father and Armaan would do anything to find her... Her father wouldn't spare these people who dare to laid their fingers on her and neither Armaan would spare them for taking her away from him... They didn't know what they had done by kidnapping her but it was surely end of their freedom as now polices would be searching for them and make sure they didn't escape from their hand after kidnapping daughter of Inspector Shashank Gupta and would be wife of Armaan Mallik...


HOSPITAL


Anjali has gain conscious and she was asking about Riddhima again and again, she wasn't listen to anyone or answering anyone as she was in too much shocked to realized that only she can help the officers to find Riddhima if she tell them what exactly happen before she fainted or it was the kidnapper make her unconscious... When Anjali kept blabbering everything and anything that comes in her mind without making sense, it was Padma who step ahead and slap her when she wasn't able to see her one daughter was in trauma while other one was missing...
'Padma...' Shashank shouted when Padma slap Anjali...

Anjali sit holding her cheek while Atul stood next to her with his arms around Anjali shoulder... Anjali was shocked with the sudden slap, she look around to recognized what was happening and why she got a slap from her mother... Armaan was standing helplessly watching them, waiting for Anjali to be on her sense and speak what has exactly happen...
'Aur kiya karti main Shashank, aap dekh rahe hona humhare beti koh... Ek yaha hospital ke bed pe padi hai aur ek pata nehi kaha, is haal mein hai...' Padma said crying as she felt bad for slapping her daughter...
'Lekin yeh sahi nehi hai Padma, woh sadme mein hai... Woh nehi jaanti woh kiya bol rahi hai, is haalat mein humein usse pyar se handle karna chahiyeh ti...' Shashank said...
'Itna waqt nehi hai humhare paas Shashank, humhare ek beti humhare aankhon ke saamne nehi hai aur dusri...'Padma couldn't continue as she was emotionally drain seeing the situation in their family...
'Sorry mom...' Anjali said as tears fall from her eyes finally realizing what was happening around her...
'I m sorry baccha, lekin tumhe hosh mein hona bohot zaruri hai iswaqt hum sabke liye... Tum hi ho jo humein aur officers koh bata sakte hai kiya huva ta aur woh log koan ti jo humhari Riddhima koh legayi...' Padma said moving close to Anjali taking her in her arms...
'Pata nehi koan ta woh log, sab apne chehra chupake rakka ta mom... Black cloths pehna ta aur teen log ta... Unlog ne humhare muhpe cloth rakka, maine chillayi bhi... Ek Ridzy koh car se nikalke utake legayi, dusri mujhe car se nikalne nehi diya aur main Ridzy koh bhulati rehgayi...' Anjali said crying hugging her mother...
'Shhh baccha, hum jaldi Ridzy koh waapas le aaenge...' Padma said caring her back...
'Mom, pata nehi woh log kyun legayi humhari Ridzy koh...' Anjali said crying...
'Anjali, kuch nehi hoga Riddhima koh... Woh jaldi humhare paas aayenge... Officer...' Shashank said as he turn to the officer who was noting Anjali each and every word...
'Don't worry Sir, hum puri koshish karenge pata lagane koan aur kyun woh log Ms. Riddhima koh kidnap ki... Tohda waqt lag sakte hai as aap jaante hai aapke bohot saare enemies hai...' Officers said...
'Mujhe result chahiyeh jaldi, itna waqt nehi hai humhare paas...' Shashank said...
'Sir, I can understand your feelings... Lekin humein inthizaar karna hoga... Kidnap huva hai toh zarur kidnapper ke call aayenge kyunki kidnapped karne ke peeche zarur koi maqsat hoga... Paise ho ya kuch aur demand, kidnapper ke call aane ke baad pata chaljaenge...' Officers says...
'Koi toh raasta hoga pata lagane ki, aap us area ke footage check karo...' Shashank said...
'Ji Sir, humhare officers kaam kar rahe hai pata lagane ki woh log koan ho sakte hai... I will take your leave now...' Officer said saluting before leaving them...

Silent was around the room as the officer left the Gupta's, Atul and Armaan alone... Anjali was sobbing hugging Padma, while tears were falling from Padma eyes too continuously thinking about Riddhima... Armaan just stood in a corner thinking about Riddhima, where she must be, what the kidnapper must be doing with her...

Anjali who was sobbing saw Armaan standing lost, his eyes bloodshot due to trying to hold his tears back from last few minutes... Controlling her sob, Anjali move out from Padma arms still her eyes fixed on Armaan... Anjali felt bad that she couldn't save her sister from the kidnappers, she knows how much Armaan and Riddhima was looking forwarding for this day...
'I m sorry Armaan...' Anjali said breaking the silent...

Armaan look at Anjali, everyone else look at Armaan for the first time realizing his present around the room... They were too much emotional that they didn't realized Armaan was going same trauma which they were going... Shashank move to Armaan and hugs him, understanding what must be going in his heart... Armaan just stood, not understand how he should be reacting...

Before, either of them could say anything more, Karan and Nandini also came... Nandini move to Anjali while Karan move to Armaan knowing he would need his support at the moment because he is as much as broke the Gupta's are... It was his love who has been taken away from him which whom he was going to start a new chapter of his life...

Armaan try to act strong in front of them but seeing his father, he couldn't hold his tears for much time... The moment Karan hugs him, tears started to fall from his eyes... Everyone single person present the room felt bad seeing tears falling from Armaan eyes as they know how much he loves Riddhima... How he had been builting a beautiful dream to share with Riddhima and spend every moment of it with her...

Karan asked Shashank about the happening knowing Armaan wouldn't be able to filled them with the information as he was too much broken at the moment... Nandini move to Armaan, clearing his tears and ask him not to cry... Armaan try to give a smile but he fail to do it as his heart was bleeding too much to pretend anything was good at the moment...
'Aap log chinta mat karo, jaldi pata chaljaenge Riddhima beti kaha hai...' Karan said...
'Humhare paas ab inthizaar karne ki alawa koi raasta nehi hai...' Shashank said...

Suddenly, Shashank got a vibrate in his wrist watch making him shocked... Shashank try to believe if it was really happening when he got second vibration making him believe it was truly happening... Seeing Shashank sudden change of expression, everyone attention was on him...
'Kiya huva Shashank, tum apne watch koh kyun dekh rahe ho...' Karan asked...
'I think now we can find where Riddhima is...' Shashank said...
'Kaise...' Armaan asked as he clear his tears when he got a hope to find his Riddhima...
'Through my watch...' Shashank said showing his watch...
'Watch...???' Padma asked...
'Mujhe pata nehi ta Riddhima would use it lekin maine kuch din pehle Riddhima koh ek device diya which she can used in any jewelry she wore and through it we can trace where she is...' Shashank said...
'Lekin woh aaj kyun device use karenge...' Anjali asked...
'I never knew she used it before or not, maybe its not first time she is using it... Due to our profession, main hamesha use karti hoon and I have connected Padma and Anjali watch to it too... Maine tum dono koh pehle batayi nhi lekin kuch din pehle maine Riddhima because her watch got broke which I gave to her and she got new one of her favorite brand...' Shashank said...
'Why to wait Shashank, jaldi se pata lagao humhari Riddhima kaha hai...' Karan said...
'Aap log yaha rukho Anjali ke paas, I will get to work...' Shashank said...
'Dad, can I come with you...' Armaan asked hoping Shashank wouldn't deny or his parents would stop him...

Shashank look at Karan and Nandini as he can't give permission to Armaan knowing how risky it would be if he wants to go to the place where the kidnappers is hiding Riddhima... It's not safe any of them to go there but being inspector, Shashank is used to be in such situation and he knows how to handle such matters...

Seeing Shashank looking towards Armaan's parent, Armaan also look towards them pleading with his eyes as if asking not to stop him... Karan and Nandini understood how much Armaan want to be with Riddhima at the moment but wouldn't take any step without their permission...
'Would it be safe...???' Nandini asked not able to hold herself from questioning about the safety...
'The situation is risky and we all know it... We don't know how dangerous those people are and what they want but if we attack them suddenly, they wouldn't get a chance to think and take action...' Shashank said...
'Mom, Dad... I will take care of myself... Nothing would happen to me...' Armaan said hoping that his parents wouldn't stop him...
'Armaan, I m sure Shashank would bring his daughter back safely...' Karan said...
'I want to be there Dad, I want to know who had kidnapped her and what they want...' Armaan said...
'Woh toh hum baad mein bhi jaan sakte haina...' Nandini said...
'Mom, not only Shashank Dad had enemies but I too do have many enemies... What if one of my enemy has kidnapped Riddhima just because she is going to be my fiance, to be wife...' Armaan said...
'What rubbish Armaan, how could you even think that...' Shashank said scolding Armaan for thinking it was his fault that Riddhima was kidnapped...
'Why not Dad, everyone very well know how much people hate me because I have send their family members to jail...' Armaan said...
'Lekin yeh zaruri nehi na tumhare wajahse aaj Riddhima kidnapped huva hai...' Shashank argue back...
'Aur yeh ho bhi sakte hai right...' Armaan said...
'Armaan...' Nandini call him trying to make him stop arguing with Shashank as he was his to be father in law...
'Shashank...' Padma also call Shashank when they were wasting time in arguing...
'Dad, Armaan... You both should go, don't waste time in arguing...' Atul said speaking between them for the first time...
'Yeah, I should...' Shashank was cut by Armaan...
'We should go...' Armaan said moving out from the room...

Shashank look towards Karan and Nandini with a helpless expression as Armaan was determine to go with him... Karan blink his eyes letting Shashank knows it was fine and he knows Shashank would take care of his son, Karan hold Nandini back seeing she was about to call Armaan... Shashank left after Armaan knowing they should take action than arguing and waste time over it...


UNKNOWN PLACE


Three guy was sitting in front of television, watching news as it was showing how the Mallik's and Gupta's has called of Armaan and Riddhima engagement... As few people from media was present in the venue, soon it was all over the news that the engagement was call off due to some emergency... They show the Gupta's and Armaan leaving the hotel...

Guys were enjoying the news as they drink alcohols, one guy has a smirk in his face as he saw the Gupta's and Armaan left the hotel with worried lines on their forehead... He knew they must have got the news of Anjali which makes them run out like that after cancelling the ceremony...
'Poor Shashank and Armaan...' Guy said who was sitting on the couch as the other two guys were sitting on the floor new his feet...
'Boss, yeh log toh aise bhaag rahe ho jaise kissi ka maut huva hai...' One guy said...
'Kyun nehi, after all Shashank Gupta ke pyari beti jo missing hogayi..' Boss said...
'Kiya planning ki hai aapne boss, yeh log kitna bhi koshish kare... Hum tak puch nehi sakte...' Second guy said...
'Aur main itni aasaani se puchne bhi nehi dunga... Shashank aur Armaan koh ek raat bina koi information ki spend karna hoga yeh soch soch ke kaha hai Riddhima...' Boss said...
'Matlab hum puri raat celebrate karenge, uske baad action...' First guy said...
'Ladki ka kiya kare boss...???' Second guy asked...
'Usse zinda toh rakhna hoga... Kyunki humhare liye zaruri hai usse sahi salaamat rakhna...' Boss said standing up...
'Toh uske liye kuch laun...' First guy asked...
'Haan, kuch toh khilana padega usse... Tum mein se koi ek jaakhe khana lekar aao, main dekhti hoon usko khosh aayi ya nehi...' Boss said...

First guy left while second guy move with the boss to the room where they had kept Riddhima... It was dim around the house and dark inside the room where they had kept Riddhima... Just only one light above Riddhima, so they would see her every action...

The boss move inside checking out Riddhima from head to toe, he was drunk and his mind was in his right place at the moment seeing the beauty in front of his eyes... He move forward and touch Riddhima face but next moment, he was on the floor holding his stomach with sudden punch...

Second guy who was with the boss move towards Riddhima and slap her for hitting his boss, he was about to slap him again but hearing his boss groan in pain he move towards the boss to help him to stand up on his feet... When the boss was on his feet, he look at Riddhima who has no fear in her face...
'Riddhima Gupta, brave like father... Impress...' Boss said...
'Glad I could make you impress whoever you are...' Riddhima said as she couldn't see his face clear...
'You wouldn't recognized me Riddhima...' Boss said...
'I don't want to know a criminal like you Mister...' Riddhima said...
'Impressive, very impressive Ms. Gupta...' Boss said...
'You wouldn't be for long Mister, because my father wouldn't leave you...' Riddhima said...

The guy laugh hearing Riddhima warning, she was the one who was captured under him but she was warning him forgetting that she should be the one who should be scared, not him... Second guy also joins his boss as they laugh out not being aware of what Riddhima has done and soon their plan would be failed...
'Look whose talking, jisko darna chahiyeh woh humein dhamki de rahi hai...' Boss said...
'My father is not scared of criminal like you, than why would I be scared of a human like you Mister...'Riddhima said..
'Tum toh aise bol rahe ho, jaise abhi tumhari father aayenge tumhe bachane...' Boss said...
'Woh zarur aayenge, aur tumhe chodenge nehi Mister... Ab tak toh usko pata bhi chal chuka hai main kaha hoon...' Riddhima said smirking...
'Kaise...' Boss asked not wanting to fall in her trap...
'Smart people don't reveal their secrets...' Riddhima said...
'Look Ms. Gupta... Don't act smart with me...' Boss said moving close to her and holding her cheek tightly making his fingers dig in her cheeks...
'I m smart Mister, I don't need to act like one... Watch yourself and save yourself...' Riddhima said struggling to make him leave her...
'Bohot gamand haina, apne paap ke tarah...' Boss said leaving her...
'Tumhe jo sochna hai socho but don't forget, you don't have much time... Khud koh bachana hai toh abhi bachalo, if my father came... No one can save you...' Riddhima said smirking...
'Boss, lagta hai isne kuch kiya hai...' Second guy said seeing how confidently Riddhima was speaking...
'Tumhare saathi koh samajh aaya, tck tck... Lekin uske saahab koh kuch samajh nehi aaya...' Riddhima said...
'Yeh kiya kar sakte hai...' Boss said...
'Lekin boss, yeh itni yakeen ke saath bol rahi hai toh pakka kuch kiya hai isne...' Second guy said...
'Maan leti hoon tu jo keh rahi hai sach hai... Main khud koh bachalunga lekin tumhe koi nehi bacha sakte...'Boss said taking the gun and pointing it to Riddhima...
'Bachalenge, my father and Armaan will rescue me...' Riddhima said not being scared...
'Dekhte hai, koan kisse bachate hai...' Boss said smirking at he got ready to shot Riddhima on the spot...

Riddhima kept looking towards the guy, she has no fear of being on gun point knowing he can't harm her... Riddhima knows now Shashank would be on his way to the place where they kept her and they were unaware of the secret device which was attach to her bracelet which was on her hand... Riddhima was glad that she thought to use it specially today, she knows it would be a great help because those people wouldn't think of such thing when they kidnapped someone...

Riddhima didn't blink her eyes for a second as she waited for the guy to shot her... She wasn't scared of being shot, because she knows god wouldn't let anything happen to her making bad people win on their plan of hurting someone for their bad deeds... Seeing Riddhima strong gaze, confident in her eyes, the guy felt little scared as a thought came in his mind thinking what if Riddhima was telling truth...

If his life was in danger, he wouldn't let go off Riddhima so easily... He has a doubt that Shashank would give on his demand but he thought if he can't get what he wants, why to let go off one of the precious person in Shashank life... Also he knows, how she must mean to Armaan so if he kill her, it would be lost to both Shashank and Armaan... He make his mind to kill Riddhima, so without thinking he got ready to shot her...

Gun shot echo around the room making the place vibrate as it was empty leaving just a single chair... Guy kept looking at Riddhima who sit looking at him without blinking her eyes, still no fear in her eyes... Gun was still point towards Riddhima as both kept staring each other without breaking their eye lock as one has fear and other has no fear at all...
