PART 3 B :Will Love You, Till My Last Heartbeat(An AR TS)



'Mom, mom... Kiya huva aapko... Mom...' Armaan started to shake her but neither Nandini speak or look at him... Armaan hold her body close to him as he rubbed her back trying to make her speak to him but it was no use... Nandini wasn't reacting his voice, neither his touch... She was laying lifeless, looking at his son with her eyes open... No more breathing as it has stop along with her heartbeat, taking her to another world leaving her love ones in shocked...

Armaan wasn't able to believe this was happening to him, his trace was broke hearing Nandini mobile ring... He saw Karan calling but he felt rang rising in his body very well understanding like always Karan must have ignore her calls due to his work...


Controlling his tears, he took his mobile and ask Riddhima to come to the address as soon as she could... Riddhima was surprise to hear his broken voice but she realized something must have happen... Than Armaan call Rahul asking him also to reach too, Rahul try to ask what happen but Armaan said he should come fast... After cutting the call, Armaan call Karan office to check where he was... Armaan got to know he went for another meeting, his anger reach to the sky hearing this but he wasn't going to leave Nandini alone unless Riddhima or Rahul come...

Armaan took Nandini to the hospital, but somewhere in his heart he knows it was too late... By the time he reach, Rahul and Riddhima was already there... Seeing him carrying Nandini, they rush to him and soon they rush inside as they shoot several questions asking what has happen...

Armaan was in no state to reply either of them, the moment Nandini was taken inside Armaan broke down hugging Riddhima... Riddhima try to calm him but nothing was working at the moment... She look towards Rahul but he was helpless for the first time seeing how broken he was, they know how much Armaan loves his mother...
'Armaan, sab tik hoga...' Riddhima said at last...
'Kuch bhi tik nehi hoga ab Riddhima... Kuch bhi nehi...' Armaan said as tears fall from his eyes...
'Aise kyun keh rahe ho, doctors check kar rahi haina mom koh...' Riddhima said...
'Kyunki mom humein chodke jaa chuki hai Riddhima, woh chali gayi...' Armaan said...

It was like a bomb to Riddhima and Rahul, they were speechless hearing Armaan words... Rahul had enough of Armaan crying and none sense talk, he came and pull him out from Riddhima arms... Riddhima stood not understanding how to react... It was just two weeks she met her and in one day, Nandini has shower her so much love that she was overwhelmed and wishing to have another outing with her mother in law... She never knew it was their first and last meeting that day...
'Armaan yeh tu kiya bol raha hai...' Rahul asked shaking him...
'Sahi bol raha hoon Rahul, woh chali gayi mujhe chodke... Mujhe der hogaya pochne mein, aur jisko usne sabse pehle phone kiya, woh abhi tak meeting mein paise kama ne mein busy hai...' Armaan said...
'Armaan yeh tu...' Rahul was cut by Armaan...

Armaan told Rahul and Riddhima what happen from the moment Nandini call him, tears were continuously falling from Armaan and Riddhima's eyes... Rahul also has tears in his eyes as he was close to Nandini who treat him like her second son... Armaan fall down on his knee as he felt helpless, so helpless that he wasn't able to save his mother...

No one speak till the doctor come outside, the moment doctor came out Rahul went to him to make sure Armaan was telling the truth or not... Hearing the heart breaking news, Rahul even couldn't hold his tears back letting it fall from his eyes... He look at Armaan who was hugging Riddhima, he knows Armaan wasn't in condition to filled the formalities so he ask the doctor to continue with the papers to take Nandini's body for the last rituals...

Rahul asked Riddhima to take care of Armaan while he do the formalities, when Rahul left Armaan also stood up making Riddhima surprise... Riddhima try to stop him but he said he needs to go somewhere and would be back soon... Riddhima try to go with him but Armaan stop her saying she needs to be there with his mother... Riddhima was helpless so let Armaan go knowing he wouldn't take her with him...

MALLIK ENTERPRIZE

Karan was in conference room when suddenly Armaan walk in without asking for permission... Karan was surprise to see him and got angry on him for crashing in between his meeting... Without caring about the clients, Armaan stood in front of Karan...
'Yeh kiya battameezi hai Armaan...' Karan said...
'Aap mujhe tameez sikhaenge ab Mr. Karan Mallik...' Armaan said...
'Kisne aane diya tumhe andar...' Karan asked and was about to call the security but Armaan cut him...
'Security koh bhulane ki zarurat nehi hai... Main yaha bas itna bata ne aaya hoon, aapka biwi aur mera mom ab is dhuniya mein nehi hai... Apne kaam se fursat mile toh uski last rituals pura karne zarur aana... Nehi aaye toh bhi fark nehi padega kyunki abhi uski yeh beta zinda hai itna karne ke liye..' Armaan said...
'Kiya bakwaas kar rahe ho...' Karan said being shocked...
'Bakwaas nehi sach keh raha hoon... Aaj aapke wajahse maine apna mom koh khoya hai... Sirf aap zimmadaar hai Karan Mallik...' Armaan said...
'Yeh sach nehi hai...' Karan said...
'Yehi sach hai Karan Mallik, aapko apne biwi ki call attend karne ka waqt nehi mila... Yeh pata lagane ka woh kyun tumhe kaam ke waqt phone kiya... Aaj sirf aapke wajahse woh is dhuniya mein nehi raha... Lekin aap chinta mat karo, aap na aaye toh main puri rituals ke saath apne mom koh vida karunga...' Armaan said as fire were in his eyes, he was shaking from head to toe...

Along with Karan, everyone else were shocked to get this news... For a minute or so, Karan didn't know how to react... He dismiss the meeting and try to call Nandini number but she wasn't answering... Karan knows Armaan wouldn't give any information about Nandini, so he call Rahul knowing he would be with Armaan and would know where Nandini must be at the moment...

After talking to Rahul, Karan reach to hospital and from there, Karan took everything on his hand... For the first time, that day Karan saw Riddhima but he didn't give any attention to her as he was still under the shocked for losing his wife...

Without speaking to anyone, or each other Armaan and Karan did all the rituals... Neither of them cry all this while but Riddhima understood how broken Armaan was from inside to lose his mother... She can understand how it feels to lose someone close to heart and when that person is the mother who bring you to this world after so much pain and sleepless nights...

FIVE MONTHS LATER

Armaan was sitting holding Riddhima hand as oxygen mask and many other wires were attach to her body... His eyes were bloodshot due to crying continuously from god knows how many hours or days... Armaan was looking towards Riddhima pale face, she was having difficulty in breathing in between so they had put the oxygen mask on... Armaan heart was bleeding seeing his love on hospital bed, fighting for her life... Armaan felt how unlucky he was that his mother has already left and now his love was fighting for her life too...

Fresh tears started to fall from his eyes remember the day he get to know about Riddhima condition, they didn't thought it would be something like that but after doing some test everything started to fall in their life realizing any time Riddhima could leave the world, leave Armaan alone if they didn't start the treatment... Armaan close his eyes as the day flash in front of his eyes, once again making his world shattered...

FLASH BACK START (A MONTH AGO)

It's been four months after Nandini has left them, Armaan kept himself busy in work as he was trying to accept the truth and move on his life with Riddhima knowing they can't bring Nandini back... Karan didn't talk to them, neither Armaan or Riddhima try as from the beginning he didn't like Riddhima...

Riddhima has seen how much Armaan was trying to believe that his mother was no more but Riddhima knows it would be difficult to accept his mother has left him when nothing was right between father and son... Riddhima try to keep Armaan busy with her whenever he comes home, she try to cheer him up with the help of Rahul and Muskaan...

Even it was difficult for Riddhima to believe knowing how much a kind and loving person Nandini was, in first meeting which sadly become her last meeting with her which had make Riddhima realized how lucky she got to have a mother in law kum mother like Nandini... It's god decision that he take nice people so soon, to keep with him but make others cry who is a part of that particular person life...

Riddhima knows how much Armaan was trying not to let the lost effect his present when now Riddhima was a part of his life, Riddhima was happy that Armaan was trying to accept and move on with her but she knows, it would take time... How long, neither Armaan or she knows because she wasn't still over the fact that long before her mother has left her...

As they haven't gone for their honeymoon yet, Riddhima thought it was high time that she talk about it with Armaan... As they had been busy in their work, they only get evening and night to spend with each other... Most of the time, they would just be in their home, have dinner and watch a movie or just go to bed after dinner... Riddhima knows, it wouldn't be best to talk about it before as Armaan has lost his mother but to give him the happiness and love he deserve, Riddhima was willing to take him away to a new place...

So thinking where they could go, Riddhima was trying to search for some place's where they could go for their honeymoon to spend sometimes with together... Sitting in the office, Riddhima was searching the net for a romantic destination where she could take Armaan and make him believe that there is someone who still love him and for whom he has to live rest of his life...

Riddhima didn't know when the lunch time finished, when the staff has started to come back after lunch Riddhima also thought to go back to her work thinking she can talk Armaan later that night... As Riddhima was waiting for her boss, to sign some papers she thought to check if the boss has come...

Collecting the papers, Riddhima stood up but she felt a sudden pain in her head... Riddhima hold her head as the pain started to get increase, Riddhima felt her surrounding started to roam as blackness came in front of her eyes... Before Riddhima could sit back on the chair, she felt black out making her fall on the floor catching others attention who run to check what has happen to her suddenly...



HOSPITAL

Armaan rush inside the private room to see doctor checking Riddhima while Muskaan was standing close to Riddhima holding her one hand... Everyone look at him as the doctor got back to his work, Muskaan move away letting Armaan stand close to his Riddhima holding her hand as they wait for the doctor to finish checking her...

Doctor's ask some questions which Riddhima and Muskaan gave answers, Armaan was trying to understand what has happen suddenly that Riddhima end up in hospital bed... Doctor's ask about Riddhima health history and check some reports so he could understand what might happen...
'I want to do scan, after that I could say anything... I don't think it's normal headache but can't say anything before the scan be done...' Doctor says...
'Is anything serious Doctor...' Armaan asked...
'For now, everything seems normal but I would request you to do the scan because how many scan she has done till now, its been long before...' Doctor says...
'When I can go to home Doctor...' Riddhima asked...
'After the gulcose finished, I will discharge you... You can make appointment for scan today and do it as soon as possible... Come back with the reports, I will give medicines than but for now I m giving medicine for the pain...' Doctor said...
'Thank you Doctor...' Armaan thank him who left nodding his head...

Once Doctor was out from the room, Muskaan left to make appointment knowing they would need sometimes alone... It was Muskaan who had inform Armaan as from Riddhima office, someone call her to inform about Riddhima as she has given Muskaan number if any emergency happens...

When Muskaan also left them alone, Armaan look at Riddhima who blink her eyes saying she was fine... Armaan sit next to her still holding her hand as he softly kiss on it making Riddhima smile feeling his love in that simple kiss.. Riddhima knows, Armaan must got panic hearing about her landed on hospital all of sudden...
'Main tik hoon Armaan...' Riddhima said seeing how Armaan was trying not to make eye contact...
'Tumhe idea bhi hai, mujhe kaise laga ye sunke tum yaha hosp...' Armaan stop not being able to continue...
'Armaan, main jaan bhuj kar toh nehi aayi...' Riddhima said...
'Main kitni baar kaha tumse, dikhate hai doctor koh... Lekin nehi, why would you listen to me...'Armaan said looking at her as tears were in his orbs...
'Ab dekhliya na doctor ne mujhe, kuch nehi huva hai Armaan...' Riddhima said...
'Haan, behosh nehi hote aur Muskaan tumhe yaha nehi laate toh tum aati bhi nehi...' Armaan said trying not to let his tears fall...
'Of course, mujhe paisa jo bachani ti humhare honeymoon ke liye... Mister, if you have forgotten let me remind you...We have a pending honeymoon which I m not going to let go easily go waste due to your not happening mood...' Riddhima said...
'Tumhe abhi bhi honeymoon ki padi hai...' Armaan said...
'Of course after all its our honeymoon... Where we would go together, spend times as much as we can without thinking about work or anyone else... And and, I could spend as much as money I want...' Riddhima said...
'Accha, aur woh paise kiska hoga...' Armaan asked...
'Of course tumhara, waise bhi jo tumhara hai woh meri bhi toh hai...' Riddhima said...
'Jab banda pura ka pura tumhari hai toh paisa kyun nehi right...' Armaan said...
'Exactly, toh bata... Kab leja rahe ho mujhe honeymoon pe...' Riddhima asked...
'Yaha aakar leit gaye toh main kaise tumhe lejaun...' Armaan said..
'Arey, kuch bhi nehi huva mujhe... Pata nehi yeh doctors kiya bolte hai, bas faint huva toh scan... Uff kiya karun main in logo ka...' Riddhima said putting her free hand on her forehead dramatically...

Armaan smile seeing how Riddhima was acting and why she was doing it... How much Armaan hates to come this place, after his mother death even Riddhima hates... Who would want to end up in a hospital bed when their own bedroom bed is much more comfortable... Seeing Armaan smile, Riddhima also smile as she pull his hand which Armaan was holding, on her chest after kissing it...

Their moment was disturb with Muskaan who came holding some paper, she gave it to Armaan so he could complete rest of the forrmalities... Armaan left giving a quick kiss on Riddhima forehead asking Muskaan to stay with her till he come back... Muskaan smile seeing how much Armaan loves her and she was happy her best friend got someone like Armaan who loves her so much...

When Armaan left, Muskaan turn to Riddhima who was looking towards the door Armaan after vanished behind it... Rddhima raise her eyebrow as if asking her what she was thinking, with a naughty grin Muskaan sit next to her and Riddhima knew what was coming...
'Don't even dare...' Riddhima warn Muskaan..
'Hayye, kaise na kahun kuch... Tum dono ka pyar dekh kar mujhe kitna khushi milti hai...' Muskaan said...
'Toh apne liye bhi koi dhundlo...' Riddhima said...
'Kash, kash Armaan jaisa koi hota...' Muskaan said...
'Sorry to burst your bubble Muskaan Chadda, lekin Armaan sirf ek piece hai aur is janam mein aur aage har janam mein sirf meri hai...' Riddhima said...
'Wah, kiya baat hai Riddhima... Bohot acche acche lafzze bhi bolne lagi tum... Lagta hai pyar ka bohot gehra asar pada hai, aisa kiya karta hai Armaan jo tujhe sirf wohi chahiyeh...' Muskaan said...
'Jo bhi karte hai, tumhe kyun bataun...' Riddhima said...
'Sahi hai, ab shaadi hogayi toh dost, dost na raha...' Muskaan said dramatically wiping invisible tears...
'Bas haan, blackmail nehi chalega... Aur meri chod, tu bata... Kab shaadi karne ka plan hai...'Riddhima asked...
'Shaadi kaise hogi, ladka toh hai nehi...' Muskaan said...
'Haina, Rahul kaisa hai...' Riddhima asked...

Muskaan look at Riddhima with shocked expression as her eyes got wide hearing Rahul name from Riddhima... Muskaan never thought Riddhima would join her name with him as she was unaware Riddhima has witness the little moments happen between her and Rahul... Riddhima smirk seeing Muskaan expression, she has seen how things were changing between Muskaan and Rahul in last two three months...

Whenever they meet,  Rahul keeps trying his luck on Muskaan who really didn't bother but when he do it every time they meet, Muskaan has started to think if Rahul was joking or being serious... Till now, Rahul hasn't been seen with any girl and Riddhima wish he truely have feeling for Muskaan because he was a good guy and would keep his girl very much happy...

Seeing Muskaan lost, Riddhima nudge her to catch her attention... Realizing what Riddhima was trying to do, Muskaan roll her eyes as if telling she wasn't interest in Rahul but her heart was beating faster thinking what Rahul must be thinking about her as somewhere she wish Rahul has feeling for her...
'Arey, aise aankhein roll roll mat kar... Bol na, woh tik hai ya koi aur pasand hai...' Riddhima asked...
'Common Ridzy, hum dono baatein kam ladte zyada hai... How can we both, I really don't think it would be possible...' Muskaan said...
'What if he do have feelings for you and how do you know it wouldn't work unless you don't give a try...' Riddhima said...
'I don't know and I don't want to talk about it...' Muskaan said...
'Muski, if you have feelings for him... Try and know what he thinks about you...' Riddhima said...
'Nehi Ridzy, mujhe mein itni himmat nehi hai...' Muskaan said..
'Kabhi kabhi himmat karna padta hai... Kahin tumhari chupi se tu apni pyar koh kho na de...'Riddhima said...

Before Muskaan could say anything, Armaan came with a nurse who remove the gulcose bottle freeing Riddhima to go... Armaan offer Muskaan to drop her on their way but Muskaan deny saying she will manage... Thanking her, Riddhima and Armaan left... Armaan realized the sudden tension between two friend but thought to let them handle it knowing Riddhima would tell him if she didn't understand what to do next...

THREE DAYS LATER

Armaan was sitting in front of the doctor who was checking Riddhima reports, seeing worried lines appear on his forehead Armaan understood something wasn't right but what it was a suspense... When finally doctor finished studying the reports as well check the scans, Doctor kept the papers on the table looking towards Armaan...

Seeing Armaan expression, Doctor knew Armaan must have got a clue that something wasn't right... Doctor sit straight making himself ready to let the news in front of Armaan knowing how much he must be loving his wife as he has witness how Armaan had come rushing to meet Riddhima the day she was admitted...
'Mr. Mallik, I know this must be a big shocked for you but I wouldn't hide it from you as you are her husband and u have all the right to know this... Mr. Mallik, those headache Riddhima was getting wasn't due to just normal headache... She is having...' Doctor stop to make sure that Armaan was ready to hear the worst of his life...
'She is having what Doctor...???' Armaan asked as his heartbeat started to bang on his chest as if it might come out breaking his rib cages...
'Brain tumor...' Doctor said finally letting the truth out...

ARMAAN POV START

My heart was banging on my chest as if it might come out any minute breaking the rib cages, my eyes was fixed on Doctor face as unknowingly I hold my breath hoping it wasn't as bad as the death of my mother... For a second, I wish I could have my mother by my side at this moment knowing whatever the doctor was going to say wouldn't be any better...
'Brain tumor...' Doctor said finally letting the truth out...

I felt everything crash down around me, I couldn't see anything other than Riddhima's smiling face flashing in front of my eyes but it keeps getting crashing in to piece's... I felt sudden pain in my heart as it started to bleed blood badly when the truth drown in my brain realizing how much worst it was, another person was getting ready to leave me behind alone in this world...

I felt so much helpless at the moment, I wanted to scream as loud as I can asking just one question from god... 'WHY...???' I felt my eyes getting burn with the tears forming in it but wasn't ready to fall out as it make my sight blur...My heart was crying as a hard a sound of it breaking realizing what might happen in my life in future...

I didn't know how long I just sit like that, staring to no place as Riddhima image keeps flashing in front of my eyes as it kept flying away just like breeze in a windy day... I was helpless because I wasn't able to hold her but let her break in to several piece's as if it was too much to mend it back together...

I wasn't able to think about anything, just only Riddhima imagine keep flashing in front of my eyes... Than suddenly, it drown in my mind... How she would be able to handle this news, how she will react to know those headache are not normal but due to the tumor which was growing in her brain...

No, I can't let her know about this... I wouldn't let her know this, I will not let anything happen to her... I couldn't save my mother but, I had to save my love, my wife, my Riddhima... I had to do everything I could, I wouldn't accept defeat without trying... Yes, I would hide it from Riddhima and do her treatment... She didn't need to know it unless we had to do the operation...

ARMAAN POV END

Deciding what he has to do, Armaan clear his tears before it falls from his eyes... Controlling his emotions, Armaan look towards the doctor who was waiting for Armaan to accept the truth about his wife health condition... Doctor knows he would need sometimes to get grip of himself before they talk about further treatment of Riddhima health...
'Medicine se control ho sakte hai...???' Armaan asked hoping than only he could hide it from Riddhima...
'Sadly, no Mr. Mallik... It has grown too big to remove it by medicines... I would ask to go for surgery as soon as possible... Already bohot der hochuki hai Mr. Mallik, aur late ki toh shayad hum Mrs. Mallik koh bacha nehi paungi...' Doctor said...

Armaan felt his life crash down to the ground, again tears form in his eyes but he let it drain back in his eyes without letting it fall... Armaan knows it wasn't the time to feel helpless or weak, he had to be strong for his love, his wife... Armaan closed his eyes and let a deep breath before opening it as he got ready to have a serious talk with the doctor...
'Kitna waqt hai...???' Armaan asked...
'5 ya 6 mahine...' Doctor said...
'Kitni risky hai yeh operation...???' Armaan asked as his heart was banging on his chest...
'She might forget everything, she might forget half of her life or she might go to coma from which we don't know in how many days, months or years she would come back or if the operation goes well, neither of these might happen...' Doctor said...
'Kab operation ho sakte hai...???' Armaan asked as he closed his eyes knowing how risky it could be...
'Pehle teen month ke liye humein Mrs. Mallik koh medicine dena hoga, kuch test and scans karwana hoga yeh dekhne ke liye woh tumor grow hote ya nehi... Phir uske baad dekhte hai, kab operation kar sakte hai...' Doctor said...
'Ok Doctor but I have a request...' Armaan said...
'What...' Doctor asked...
'I don't want my wife to know about this, not yet...' Armaan said...
'Ok Mr. Mallik, whenever u think its right her to know u can tell her...' Doctor said...
'Thank you Doctor...' Armaan said giving a sad smile to him...
'It's our duty Mr. Mallik, now I m giving some medicine for her... Please make sure she take these medicine without skipping it...' Doctor says as he wrote medicines for Riddhima...
'Sure Doctor, thank you...' Armaan said to which Doctor nod his head as Armaan left his cabin...

AR APARTMENT

Armaan directly came home without going back to office, he inform his boss that he has some work outside so he wouldn't be able to go back today... As Armaan never ask for half day, his boss didn't deny but let him have rest of the day off freeing him earlier for the day...

As soon as Armaan enter their apartment, he stop as he look around to see the days he has spend with Riddhima in their love hut... Armaan was imagine both of them in every corner of the apartment as Riddhima laughter echo around the making tears falling from his eyes thinking how long he would be able to spend times with her thinking about her condition...

Armaan slowly move inside closing the door behind as he move every corner of the apartment imagine Riddhima and him as they had make several memories in their sweet home... When he reach their bedroom, Armaan look at the bed where he imagine Riddhima and him laying hugging each other as smile adore on their lips... Smile form in his lips seeing the sight but soon it vanished as the imagine fade away making the reality drown in his brain...

Armaan move inside and sit looking at the papers on his hands, he kept staring at it as he hold a bag which has Riddhima medicines which Doctor has description for the coming month... Armaan was thinking, how he would manage to make Riddhima take those medicine on time each day without letting her get suspense...

Armaan was so lost that he didn't know how the time pass and it was time for Riddhima to come home... Armaan quickly hide the medicine description and reports as he wasn't ready to break the news to Riddhima yet, he knows one day he had to do it but he felt that it wasn't the right time yet... Clearing his face, leaving a deep breath controlling his emotions Armaan decide to make Riddhima life as beautiful as he could do...

As Armaan don't know what will happen in future, he just wanted to make enough memories with Riddhima so it wouldn't hurt him if by chance Riddhima forget him or... Armaan closed his eyes as he felt someone put cold water in his spines making him shiver thinking of losing Riddhima, his love... Armaan never thought, anything like this would be happening in his life but don't know why god was giving a hard life to him as he was testing him to see if he deserve it or not...

When he finally decide, he would do anything to keep Riddhima happy in rest of her life he got busy thinking what to do to make every moment special for Riddhima in coming days... Armaan knows Riddhima would ask several questions but he just want to show her and make her feel no matter what, he would always love her, till his last heartbeat...

EVENING, 8 PM

Riddhima came being tired as Muskaan took her for shopping, Riddhima was surprise when Muskaan call asking her to join her in shopping suddenly... Riddhima call Armaan to inform him and without making any excuse, even Armaan let her go and Riddhima was really surprise about it... Riddhima enter the apartment using her spare keys, as soon as she step inside Riddhima was shocked to see the arrangement as candles were light up with dinner on the coffee table...

Riddhima was wondering why Armaan has done this suddenly and than she understood why Armaan didn't stop her for going shopping with Muskaan... Riddhima who was waiting to reach home earlier but for some reason, even Armaan give her permission asking her to enjoy sometimes with her best friend and buy anything she wants...

All the light's were off while the candles were giving enough light to the hall, Riddhima move in closing the door and locking it as she felt something under her feet... Riddhima look down to see rose petals under her feet, she was really surprise to see the decoration as she try to remember if she has forgotten any special day of their life as she couldn't remember anything as she very well remember their first meeting date, confession date and wedding date...

Being lost, Riddhima move inside to get bump to Armaan who has come out hearing the door open... As Riddhima didn't see him coming and neither he saw her coming, they were about to lose balance but Armaan hold her by waist pulling her close to him as he balance himself before they fall on the floor...

Both look at each other eyes as they were lost in their love land, Armaan kept looking at Riddhima face seeing how tired she was looking while Riddhima try to understand the emotions in his eyes but for some reason, she wasn't able to as she found something different in his eyes today... Armaan break the eye lock seeing how Riddhima was trying to read his eyes, he was scared to let it reach her heart knowing his eyes can never anything from her...

Not letting Riddhima suspense on his behavior, Armaan took her in bridal style and move inside the room making her stand near the bed... Riddhima just kept looking at him who was for some reason not meeting his eyes with her or letting her look in his eyes knowing very well his eyes can't hide anything from her...
'Kiya huva Armaan...' Riddhima asked...
'Kuch bhi toh nehi, tum fresh hojao... Phir hum dono dinner karte hai, aaj maine apne biwi ke liye special dinner banaya hai...' Armaan said pulling her in his arms looking at her face as he hide the sorrow letting the happiness reach to her...
'Woh toh tik hai Armaan, tum doctor ke paas gaya ta na meri reports dikhane... Kiya kaha doctor ne...???' Riddhima asked...
'Kaha, tum bohot careless ho... Aise itni din tak headache koh jhelna nehi chahiyeh... Issiliye tumhare liye ek month ki medicine diya hai, sinus kuch zyada hogaya hai tumhe... Ek month medicine lene koh kaha aur phir test aur scan repeat karne...' Armaan said successfully without letting his voice break...
'Oh, thank god...' Riddhima said letting her breath as for some reason she hold it...
'Chalo ab, jaldi se fresh hojao... Mujhe apni biwi ke saath dinner karna hai...' Armaan said...
'Oh haan, woh decoration all kyun...' Riddhima asked keeping her purse and bags on the bed...
'Aise hi, tumhi toh kehte rehte ho... Tumhari pati romance nehi hai, so I thought to tell show you how much romantic I can be and I promise you Riddhima... I will try to make every single day of your life memorable for us...' Armaan said holding her hand and kissing it as he rest it on his chest near his heart...
'Armaan, I know how much you love me... You don't need to do all this...' Riddhima said...
'But I want to do this for you Riddhima... For our undying love which will be blossoming in our hearts, still our last heartbeat...' Armaan said looking straight to her eyes...
'I love you Armaan...' Riddhima said as she was short of words hearing Armaan choice of words to make her feel the love he has for her...
'I love you too...' Armaan said kissing her forehead lingering his lips making Riddhima closed feeling his love in that small touch...

Both hugs each other as Riddhima rest her head on his chest while Armaan rest his chin over Riddhima head as he closed her eyes trying to control his heart which was bleeding not knowing how many days he would get to hold her like that in his arms...
'Chalo ab jaldi se fresh hokar aao, I m starving...' Armaan said breaking their hug...
'Hmm bas ten minutes...' Riddhima said kissing his cheek making Armaan smile showing his dimples but Riddhima saw how it didn't reach to his eyes like it does every other time...

When Riddhima left to fresh up, Armaan sit hiding his face on his palm... Armaan knows it would be very hard to pretend in front of Riddhima and somehow, Riddhima could read his eyes and understand something wasn't right, he is trying to hide something... Armaan was determine to hide it till he could do because he knows, one day he had to tell Riddhima the truth and it would break her down for hiding it from her and torlating the sorrow alone...

While Armaan was thinking how to keep it hide from Riddhima, already Riddhima had realized that something wasn't right... Riddhima thought to forget it for the time hoping that Armaan would come and tell her whatever he is trying to hide it is necessary her to know in future...

So ignoring it, Riddhima got fresh up and wore one of her nightie which was Armaan favorite... Riddhima came outside to see Armaan nowhere in the room, so leaving the towel in laundry basket Riddhima move out as water drops fall on her bare shoulder as it was left as she didn't dry it properly... Riddhima move out to the hall to see, Armaan watching television as he waited for her...

Riddhima frown seeing how Armaan was lost that he didn't realized her present, she move close to him sitting on his lap making him startled feeling Riddhima so closed to him suddenly... Riddhima bend over the coffee table as she check what Armaan has cooked for her, seeing her favorite food Riddhima filled a plate and comfortably sit on Armaan lap as he kept staring at her...

Riddhima thought Armaan would interrupt her like he usually do but when he didn't speak a word and kept staring at her without blinking his eyes, Riddhima turn to look at his face as he has a small smile on his lips... Riddhima move a morsel to him breaking his trace, he happy ate it making Riddhima smile... They both had dinner like that, Riddhima sitting on Armaan lap and feeding him as she also ate from the same plate...

No one speak as they kept watching the television but when finally they were done, Riddhima try to move out from Armaan lap but he was holding her without letting her go... Riddhima turn around asking him what happen through her eyes, Armaan smile shaking his head and let her move as she took the plates inside the kitchen... Armaan also help her and after drinking water, he left to get her medicine...

By the time Armaan came back, Riddhima has started to wash the dishes so he help her in drying them and putting it on there respective place arranging it in order... When they were done, Armaan forward medicine to Riddhima who make a face making Armaan smile...
'Muh mat banao, tumhare liye zaruri hai...' Armaan said putting it close to her lips...
'Bilkul nehi hai...' Riddhima said turning her face away...
'Zaruri nehi hota toh main tumhe kehti bhi nehi Riddhima, please le lo... Bas kuch din ki toh baat hai, phir sab kuch tik hoga...' Armaan said making Riddhima look towards him...
'Armaan, sab tik haina... I mean yeh dawai...' Riddhima was cut by him...
'Of course tik hai, tumhari headache ke liye yeh dawai zaruri hai Riddhima...' Armaan said trying to smile from heart but once again he fails to do so...

Riddhima didn't feel to deny so like a good girl she took the medicine hoping that Armaan was telling the truth but some where in her heart, she was having a feeling that something was bothering him... For a moment, Riddhima thought may be its because he has gone to hospital today that too alone as she couldn't get off earlier and Riddhima knows how Armaan feel to go hospital after the death of his mother...

After taking the medicine and drinking water, Riddhima kept the empty glass on the counter and next moment she felt Armaan carrying her in his arms making her one hand goes around his neck while other rest on his bare chest as Armaan was only in his short... Riddhima didn't say anything as she didn't feel to stop him tonight, she understood what might be bothering him that he was so disturb today...

When Armaan took Riddhima to their room and make her laid down on bed, Riddhima hold Armaan hand who kiss it as he sit next to her... Riddhima move on his lap with her legs either side of his torso, Armaan hold her waist to keep her close as her softness touch his chest...
'I m sorry Armaan...' Riddhima said looking at his eyes as she move her hands around his neck...
'Kis liye...' Armaan ask as he look at her face...
'Aaj tumhe akele hospital jaana pada, woh bhi meri kaam ke liye... Armaan, I know tumhe woh jhaga bilkul nehi pasand...' Riddhima said caring his nape...
'It's ok Riddhima, tum meri biwi ho aur tumhari khayal rakhna mera farz hai...' Armaan said touching his forehead against on her...
'Aur meri bhi farz hai main tumhe khush rakhun right...' Riddhima said...
'Woh toh tum har waqt karte ho, kabhi maine complain ki...' Armaan asked...
'Nehi, kyunki main tumhe complain karne ka chance jo nehi deti...' Riddhima said moving out looking at his face...
'I love you Riddhima...' Armaan said...
'I love you too Armaan, I love you a lot...' Riddhima said moving close sealing his lips...

Armaan kiss her back as it started slowly but as they continue kissing, it started to get passionate... Riddhima hand was caring on Armaan nape waking his desire, Armaan move his hands on Riddhima body as soon it was under her nightie feeling her skin making havoc in her body... Their body was on fire as they explore each other, biting, nibbling and sucking as they make each other soul as one forgetting about everything else...

THREE MONTHS LATER

Riddhima felt the change in her body from last three months, she had feel how her aunt and Armaan was taking a good care of her as they check on Riddhima every meal hours to see if she has taken medicines... Even Muskaan and Rahul had been spending times with her along with Kriti if Armaan isn't around her... If Riddhima gets headache, Armaan, Kriti or Muskaan would stay with her...

Still Armaan didn't tell Riddhima about her condition but he was breaking seeing how those medicines were affecting on Riddhima making her body weak day by day... Knowing he can't handle it alone for long, Armaan told Rahul, Muskaan and Kriti knowing they have the right to know about Riddhima condition... Only Armaan didn't know that it wouldn't be hidden from Riddhima for long as the day came soon that Riddhima found the truth...

As Riddhima had come earlier from work, she thought to do laundary before Armaan comes so she would be free to spend time with him... Armaan had been very busy lately, Riddhima wasn't aware why he was working so hard from last few months but never question thinking he was genually busy in his office work or maybe some important project... So to finished some work around the house, Riddhima was taking dirty cloths from the laundry basket checking Armaan jeans and trousers pocket to see if he has left anything forget in the pockets...

Riddhima always double check before she put the cloths to washing, so like always today also she was checking when she found something in his jeans pocket which Armaan wore two days ago when he left to meet her doctor after getting her reports... Riddhima got doctor description from Armaan jeans pocket, reading it Riddhima didn't understand why he has given so many medicine to her...

As Riddhima realized the doctor has change her medicine, she thought to check why he has given new medicine... Riddhima thought to google as Armaan never let her take medicine from the card but always give her the tablet which make her suspense that he was trying to hide something from her... Riddhima was shocked to see for what the medicines are to be used, she move to the wardrobe and started to search her file as Armaan had kept it safely there with other reports and scans...

Riddhima knows she wouldn't understand what's in the scans but she read the reports and she felt her world shattered when she got to know about her condition... Tears started to fall from Riddhima eyes, when her mind register what Armaan had been hiding from her past three months... Riddhima felt her heart break in to pieces, realizing how much time she has left...

RIDDHIMA POV START

I felt my surrounding roam the moment the words caught my eyes, everything seems to be shattered around realizing I don't have much time to live in this world... If I had been alone, I wouldn't be this broken but when Armaan face came in front of my eyes I felt that how much it must have pain him to know that again he was about to lose someone precious to him...

It wasn't many months after he lost him mother and now, again god was testing him by putting me in this condition... Than only I realized, how Armaan was trying to be my side every possible moment... How Armaan had been doing everything and anything to make me feel love and special...

He knew, he knew it from the beginning and he was bearing the pain all alone without letting me know that I had very less time to live with him... His caring, his possessiveness and being protective from last few months make everything fall in there right places now...

He accepted that he couldn't hold me for long and he wants to make everything memorable knowing it would break him completely when I leave him alone in this world... Ignoring his pain, his bleeding heart which might have broke in to several piece he had been trying to make me smile, make me feel love...

I could feel my tears falling from my eyes, so much was hurting him and he didn't let me feel it till now... Working hard to earn some extra money so he could do my operation, having a chance that I might live but what about the side effects... I know it would be a risky operation as they would be opening my brain, but what will happen in the end... Will I survive...???

I don't know when my legs gave up as I felt my body slowly falling down on the floor still holding the papers in my hand... Tears has started to stop but my mind was busy thinking what will happen to Armaan if anything happen to me...??? I know having a father still Armaan live for me because I m his life, his only family... Armaan never get love from his father and god took away his mother, now only I m everything to him but...

I don't have much days left, I don't know what Armaan is thinking to do but whatever happen it would hurt him and only him... I may not be here to see him, hold him to tell him everything would be fine but... Will he be able to live with no one he loves with him...???

So many questions were roaming in my mind, forgetting that Armaan might come any minute but... I don't care if he see me like this, he had been watching me dying without letting me know... My body, my face nothing was like before... I have loose so much, no glow in my face and dark circles under my eyes make me realized why it was happening with me...

I couldn't help but let out my cry as fresh tears fall from my eyes again... Without any control, I kept crying not caring it would make my health worst... What more can go wrong when nothing was right in my life, our life... After mom, I got Armaan who loves me unconditional but again god was taking me leaving him alone in this world... I felt so helpless and broken at the moment thinking about Armaan, who matters to me after my aunt...

I didn't know when my eyes started to get closed, I felt sound fading around me as my body slowly fall on the floor but still I could feel the paper in my hand, as I hold it tight... The truth of my life, written on it... Which mention, I have less days to live in this world with my Armaan...

RIDDHIMA POV END

Armaan reach home as soon as he got free from meeting, he had been trying Riddhima number but she wasn't answering him... Armaan knows Riddhima was in home as she has inform him three hours ago but he was wondering why Riddhima hasn't answer his call or return it...

As soon Armaan enter the apartment and seeing darkness, a fear came in his heart thinking where Riddhima must be... Switching the light in hall, he move to the bedroom calling Riddhima to see darkness in there too... Armaan check the time thinking she might have gone to meet Kriti but he very well know that Riddhima would inform him if she has any plan with her aunt or Muskaan...

The moment Armaan on the light, he saw Riddhima on the floor... Armaan felt the ground vanished under his feet seeing Riddhima laying there, he run leaving his bag on the floor as he quickly took Riddhima in his arms and make her laid on the bed... Armaan was too worried to see the papers on her grip, he try to bring Riddhima conscious as he kept calling her name and put some water on her face...

It didn't take much time Riddhima to gain sense, the moment she open her eyes Armaan left a relief breath as he didn't realized he was holding it all this time... Armaan took Riddhima in his arms hugging her close as Riddhima just stay trying to understand what happen...
'Thank god tum tik ho, aisa achanak behosh kaise hogayi...' Armaan asked looking at Riddhima face...
'Armaan woh main...' Riddhima don't know how to say that she was aware of her condition...
'Kiya huva Riddhima, tum ro kyun rahe ho jaan...' Armaan asked seeing fresh tears rolling down from her cheeks...
'Tumne kyun kiya aisa Armaan...' Riddhima asked closing her eyes feeling Armaan touch as he wipped her tears...
'Kiya kardiya maine Jaan...' Armaan asked...
'Kyun chupaya mujhse Armaan, kyun nehi kaha ek baar tumpe kiya beet raha hai yeh sab jaanke... Kyun nehi batayi mujhe Armaan, ki main...' Riddhima couldn't control herself as she hugs him tight...
'Kiya bol rahe ho Riddhima, kiya nehi bataya maine tumhe...' Armaan ask getting panic seeing how Riddhima was breaking down in his arms...

Riddhima forward the report which she was holding all this while still not leaving Armaan, Armaan was first confused thinking which papers are those but the moment his eyes fall on the name above the paper which has printed hospital name, Armaan understood that Riddhima got to know truth about her condition...
'Tum bohot bure ho Armaan...' Riddhima said softly hitting his chest...
'I m sorry jaan...' Armaan said finally letting his tears fall in front of her which he had been holding all this months...
'Tum bohot bure ho, bohot bure ho...' Riddhima said hitting his back as Armaan hide her in his arms...
'Main tumhe tut te huve nehi dekh sakti ti Riddhima...' Armaan said...
'Mujhe ya khud koh jab mujhe yeh pata chalega...' Riddhima asked...
'Main nehi rehpaunga tumhari bina...' Armaan said...
'Issiliye khud dard sehen raha ta aur mujhe khabar tak hone nehi diya...' Riddhima asked breaking the hug and looking at his face...
'Main jaanti hoon, tumhe kitna takleef hogi yeh jaan ke ki tum bhi kuch dino mein mujhe chodke chali jaenge...' Armaan said...
'Matlab tum mujhe bachaongi nehi...???' Riddhima asked...
'Puri koshish kar raha hoon, jaise bhi ho main tumhe bachana chahta hoon... Main issiliye tumse hide ki kyunki main nehi chahti tum yeh soche tum jee nehi paenge...' Armaan said...
'Phir bhi himmat haar ke yeh baat maanli main zyada din nehi rahenge right...' Riddhima said controlling her tears..
'Tumhe dekh ke, mere himmat haarne laga... Din ba din tumhari tabiyyat worst hote jaa rahi hai Riddhima...' Armaan said touching his forehead on her...
'Tum soch bhi kaise sakte ho main nehi ladungi... Main ladungi Armaan, tumhare liye... Humare liye kyunki main jaanti hoon, kiya importance meri tumhare life mein...' Riddhima said...
'Sach...' Armaan asked...
'Hmm, aisa ho sakti hai kiya Riddhima apni Armaan koh in dhuniya mein akela chod dun...' Riddhima ask kissing his forehead...
'I m sorry...' Armaan whisper feeling her loves...
'You should be, for hiding your pain... Letting it broke your heart which only belongs to me... How dare you, you let it broke when I never think of breaking it...' Riddhima said...
'I love you jaan, I love you alot...' Armaan said hugging her tight...
'I love you too Armaan... Please mujhe kabhi mat chodna...' Riddhima said...
'Nehi chodungi, kabhi nehi...' Armaan said as they laid hugging each other...

FLASH BACK END

'Khud kaha mat chodo, aur khud mujhse dur jaane ki koshish kar rahi ho... Yeh jaante huve bhi main tumhe jaane nehi dungi... Kyun kar rahe ho aisa Riddhima, jaan... I need you, till my last heartbeat... Please fight for us, just few more days and I promise... I will make everything right, I wouldn't let anything harm you, not even a disease can  keep us apart...' Armaan said as he kept holding Riddhima hands...

 Armaan moment was disturb with a knock on the door, Armaan clear his eyes and look around to see Muskaan and Rahul coming... Muskaan move close to Riddhima, caring her hair as she kept looking at her pale face with tears on her eyes... Rahul move close to Armaan, patting his shoulder as if saying everything would be fine in no time...
'Doctor ne kiya kaha...' Rahul asked...
'Jaldi humein operation karna hoga...' Armaan said...
'Toh wait kyun kar rahe ho Armaan, bachale apne Riddhima koh...' Muskaan said...
'Is operation ke liye bohot saara paisa chahiyeh aur mere paas utna nehi hai...' Armaan said...
'Armaan, apna ego chodo aur Karan uncle ke paas chalo... I m sure woh paisa de denge...' Rahul said...
'Mujhe uska paisa nehi chahiyeh...' Armaan said...
'Woh paisa tumhare liye kama te hai, tumhara hak hai Armaan...' Rahul said...
'Nehi Rahul, jo mere patni koh accept nehi karte, main uske paas paise maangne ke liye nehi jaunga...' Armaan said...
'Armaan, Ridzy ke baare mein toh socho... Kiya tum uske bina rehpaenge, mat hone de aisa Armaan... Bachale Ridzy koh, mat de itna dard usko...' Muskaan said as she was crying...
'Armaan...' Riddhima call his name getting their attention...

Armaan move close to her holding her hand, Riddhima try to move the oxygen mask away but Armaan hold it close to her mouth and nose shaking his head asking not to do so... Riddhima try to smile she couldn't as she was in too much pain also she don't have much strength left...
'Armaan, tum.. Dad se... Baat... Karlo...' Riddhima said...
'Nehi Riddhima, main us insaan ke paas nehi jaunga...' Armaan said...
'Plz... Mere liye... Main kabhi.. Dubara... Tumhe nehi... Khunga... Nehi Kahunga... Usse maaf kare... Nehi kahunga... Usse accept... kare... Lekin...Abhi... Mere liye... Sab kuch... Bhulake... Dad ke... Paas jao...' Riddhima said...
'Riddhima tum jaante ho, us insaan ke wajahse maine apne mom koh khoya hai...' Armaan said...
'Tumne... Apne mom... Koh khoya... Hai toh... Usne bhi... Apne... Patni koh... Khoya hai... Woh tumhe... Samjhenge... Aur madad... Bhi.. Karenge...' Riddhima said...
'Main kuch aur raasta nikalunga, lekin kabhi uske paas dubara nehi jaunga...' Armaan said...
'Armaan, apna zidd chod de... Pehle unse mana ki kyun tumne pura sach nehi bataya usko... Abhi jaakar sab kuch sach batao, woh zarur help karenge...' Rahul said...
'Nehi Rahul, main nehi jaunga...' Armaan said...
'Meri... Kasam... Tum... Mujhse... pyar... karte toh... Plz... Dad ke... Paas jao...' Riddhima said...

Armaan felt helpless hearing this, Riddhima very well know Armaan wouldn't deny knowing how much he loves her... When she was already on death bed, how can Armaan not agree on her any wish or demand... Kissing Riddhima hand, Armaan stood up looking at Muskaan...
'Main Ridzy ki paas hoon...' Muskaan said answering Armaan unspoken words...

Armaan gave a small smile to her and looking at Riddhima, he kiss her forehead before leaving with Rahul... Armaan was still not sure if it would be good or not but Rahul drive them to Karan office knowing Armaan would talk to him, for Riddhima... Rahul knows Armaan couldn't arrange the money from last one month and Riddhima health was going down...

They all don't have enough money to put in operation, even Riddhima father was willing help them but he also don't have enough money to spend on his daughter treatment... Karan was the last hope and thinking about Riddhima, Armaan move to meet his father office once again after a month...

When Rahul knock on Karan cabin, Karan call them to come in... Seeing Armaan and Rahul, Karan gave a not interest look to them as he got busy with work... Rahul look at Armaan asking him to speak out, but when neither of them speak Karan look towards them breaking the silent...
'Aap dono koh kaam nehi hai toh u may leave... Please don't waste my time...' Karan said...
'Humein koi shauk nehi hai aapka waqt barbaad karne mein...' Armaan said hearing Karan rude words...
'Armaan...' Rahul said trying to calm Armaan...
'Toh kyun aaye ho yaha, phirse paise maangne ke liye aaye ho toh let me tell you Armaan... Jab tak tum yeh nhi batate tumhe paise kyun chahiyeh, main ek bhi paisa tumhe nehi dhunga...' Karan said...
'Chalo Rahul, humein yaha aana hi nehi chahiyeh ta...' Armaan said...
'Rukh Armaan, shaanti se baat kar... Bata de uncle koh kyun chahiyeh tumhe paisa...' Rahul said...
'Aur kyun chahiyeh hoga isko, us ladki ke liye...' Karan was cut by Armaan...
'HAAN MUJHE RIDDHIMA KE LIYE WOH PAISE CHAHIYEH KYUNKI WOH APNI LIFE SE LAD RAHI HAI... WOH APNE AAKHIRI SAANSEIN LE RAHI HAI... USKE OPERATION KE LIYE MUJHE CHAHIYEH AAPKA PAISA... KOI AUR RAASTA HOTA TOH MAIN AAPKE PAAS KABHI APNE BIWI KI ZINDAGI KI BHEEG MAANG NE NEHI AATE... MOM KE BAAD WOHI HAI MERI ZINDAGI, AAPKE WAJAHSE MOM KOH TOH MAINE KHO DIYA LEKIN AB MAIN RIDDHIMA KOH KHONA NEHI CHAHTA... MUJHE AAPKE PAISON SE KOI MATLAB NEHI HAI KARAN MALLIK... SOCHA, AAP MUJHE APNA BETA MAANTA HOGA SHAYAD LEKIN MAIN KITNA GALAT HOON... DUSRON KE AANGE HAAT PEHLAAN SE PEHLE MAIN AAPKE PAAS AAYA HOON APNI ZINDAGI KI BHEEG MAANNE... LEKIN AAP KYUN MERE BAATEIN SUNENGE... NA PEHLE KABHI AAPNE MERE EMOTIONS AUR FEELINGS KA PARWA KIYA, NA AB KARTE HO... KYUNKI AAPKE LIYE HAMESHA SE HI REPUTATION AND PAISA SAB KUCH HAI... DUSRON KE FEELINGS AUR EMOTIONS TOH KUCH BHI NEHI...RIDDHIMA KOH BRAIN TUMOR HAI, JITNI JALDI HO SAKE HUMEIN OPERATION KARNA HOGA NEHI TOH WOH MARJAENGE... LEKIN AAPKO KIYA WOH MARE YA JIYE, BAS AAP YEH NEHI CHAAHTE MAIN USKE LIYE AAPKA KOI BHI PAISA SPEND NA KARE... TOH TIK HAI, MUJHE NEHI CHAHIYEH AAPKA PAISA... MOM KOH TOH KHO CHUKA HOON, PHIR EK BAAR AAPKE WAJAHSE MAIN APNE ZINDAGI KHO DUNGA... SIRF AAPKE EGO KE WAJAHSE, HAMESHA HAMESHA KE LIYE MAIN AKELE HOJAUNGA...' Armaan said letting his frustation out as he couldn't hold it in his heart anymore...

Armaan left without saying another word or let Karan say anything, Rahul look at Karan as he stood shocked hearing what Armaan has just said... When Armaan left, Karan look towards Rahul as if he wanted him to clear things whatever Armaan just said was true...
'Uncle, aaj woh aapke paas issiliyeh aaya ta kyunki Riddhima koh aap pe barosa ta aap apne bete ka madad karenge... Riddhima ke dil mein aapke liye nafrat nehi balki izzat hai, pehle din se... Woh Armaan koh mana ne ki bohot koshish ki woh aapse baat kare, rishta rakhe kyunki woh jaante hai ma baap ka pyar nehi milte toh kaisa feel hota hai... Aaj Riddhima apni zindagi se lad rahi hai uncle, aunty ke baad Armaan ne kissi se beyhadd pyar kiya hai toh woh Riddhima hai... Woh aapko blame karte hai aunty ke maut ke liye, please Riddhima koh bachalo uncle... Armaan koh yeh yakeen dilao aap usse abhi bhi pyar karte hai...' Rahul said...

Rahul gave hospital card to Karan hoping that Karan would help them, giving him a final look Rahul left hoping Armaan didn't leave without him... Rahul saw Armaan standing near the car, hiding his face as he cry bitterly feeling helpless in his life for the first time after getting married to Riddhima...
'Main kuch nehi karpaunga Rahul, main apne pyar koh nehi bachapaunga...' Armaan said hugging Rahul as he put his hand on Armaan shoulder letting him know his present...
'Sab kuch tik hojaenge Armaan, god har baar kissi ka itna imthihaan nehi lenge jiske wajahse uspe humhare vishwaas hi utjae...' Rahul said caring Armaan back...

Karan who was in cabin witness this scene and for the first time, tears fell from his eyes seeing how much his son was broken... Karan never saw Armaan crying for someone this much, not even when they perform the last rituals of his mother bidding her bye forever... Karan close his eyes as he felt a pain in his heart as Nandini face flush in front of his eyes... He knows he couldn't save his wife but due to his ego, he wouldn't let anyone else lose their wife... Clearing his tears, Karan make some calls and move out from the cabin hoping he wouldn't be too late this time...

By the time Karan came out from the office, Rahul also had left with Armaan as they went back to the hospital... Both move towards the private room to see it was empty, Armaan got worried not finding Riddhima there or neither Muskaan... Rahul also was shocked as they had left them there...

Not finding either of them, they move out as they rush towards the nurse station to ask about Riddhima... They saw Muskaan standing there as tears were falling from her eyes continuously... It was Armaan who reach to her and turn her around to face him and the moment Muskaan saw her, she broke down seeing the worried lines on Armaan forehead...
'Muskaan, Riddhima kaha hai...' Armaan asked...
'Armaan woh...' Muskaan couldn't speak as her throat was getting block...
'Kaha hai Riddhima...' Rahul asked...
'Operation...' Muskaan only could say this much...
'Operation...??? Lekin paise...' Armaan asked...
'Armaan, tumhare jaane ke baad Ridzy ki... Tabiyyat aur kharab hone... Lagi ti issiliye Doctor ne... Usse operation ke liye OT... Legayi, woh tumhara inthizaar kar raha hai Armaan... Humein abhi Ridzy ki... Operation karna hoga...' Muskaan said...
'Nehi...' Armaan said...
'Armaan, please Ridzy koh bachalo...' Muskaan said crying...

Armaan run towards the OT, Rahul and Muskaan also follow them as Rahul hold Muskaan close to him as he very well understand how much deary Riddhima is for Muskaan... They are friends from childhood and Riddhima is like a sister to Muskaan... How much Armaan was broken, Muskaan was broken too to know that her sister was fighting the last battle...

Armaan stood near the door as he couldn't go further inside, he look inside through the circle glass on the door as doctors were checking Riddhima while he give instruction to the nurses... Rahul and Muskaan also stood close to Armaan as they waited for the doctor or any nurse to come out so they could get any information about Riddhima's condition...

Twenty minutes pass and finally doctor came out, Armaan move back letting him out as they stood face to face... Doctor look at each of their faces knowing how much worried they were for Riddhima but he was helpless too for not being able to start the operation as they weren't able to pay the payment...
'Doctor Riddhima...' Armaan asked when Doctor didn't speak...
'Armaan... Bas ab ek raasta bacha hai... Tumhe jaldi faisla lena hoga...' Doctor said...
'Faisla ho chuka hai Doctor, aap operation ki tayyar karo... Payment complete ho chuka hai...' Kriti said coming as Muskaan had inform her when Riddhima health got critical...
'Bua...' Armaan call her name not believing his ears...
'Please Armaan, iswaqt yeh mat socho kaise yeh huva... Bas operation karne ke liye tumhara sign chahiyeh doctor koh...' Kriti said...
'Yes, Mr. Mallik... Main papers bhejti hoon aur jaldi operation shuru karta hoon... Aur aap chinta mat karo, aap bohot lucky hai kyunki best surgeon humhare hospital mein abhi present hai... Maine already usse aapke wife ki baare mein discuss ki hai, he is willing to do the surgery for us...' Doctor said...
'Thank you Doctor...' Armaan said thanking him as the doctor nodded and left to hurry up with the operation...

Armaan hugs Rahul as he got a hope that he would be able to save his life, his Riddhima... Muskaan also hugs Kriti as she came on time to inform that payment got completed and now they can go on with the operation... It didn't take much time for the doctors to start the operation as it was an emergency case, others wait as the operation continue for hours as it was one of the risky surgery...

Whole night Armaan, Rahul, Muskaan and Kriti spend in front of the OT as they pray and waited for the operation to be complete... It took almost 10 hours to complete when finally the red light got off as doctor came out behing exhausted working continuously for long hours...
'Congratulation Mr. Mallik... Operation successful raha, ab humein Mrs. Mallik koh hosh aane tak inthizaar karna hoga...' Doctor said knowing they must be worried for Riddhima...
'Kitna waqt Doctor...???' Armaan asked...
'Yeh main nehi kehsakti Mr. Mallik, aur aage 24 gande uske liye danger hogi... Bas pray karo, usse jaldi hosh aajaae...' Doctor said patting Armaan back as he left...

Armaan helplessly look towards the closed door, Rahul move close to him putting his arms around his shoulder... Muskaan and Kriti stood folding their hands as they pray for god while Armaan just kept looking at the door as fear took in his heart what if Riddhima didn't survive, what if Riddhima forget him...
'Sab tik hoga Armaan, Riddhima koh kuch nehi hoga... Tumhara pyar itna strong hai, woh haar nehi maanenge... Riddhima ne promise kiya haina tumse, woh ladenge... Tumhare liye, tum dono ke liye...' Rahul said...
'Haan Rahul, woh mujhe chodke nehi jaa sakte... Main usse jaane nehi dunga, nehi dunga jaane...'Armaan said...

Not having another option left, they kept waiting for Riddhima to get conscious... After three hours of operation, Riddhima was shifted to ICU as they kept her under observation as they watch her closely... They let Armaan see Riddhima but not for long as no one was allowed to stay with the patient... No one was willing to leave so, Rahul got coffee for them as they silently sip while their eyes were on ICU door waiting for Riddhima to gain sense...

12 HOURS LATER

It was going to be night soon and yet Riddhima hasn't gain sense, Riddhima father has come to see his daughter while Karan didn't come to check if she is alive or still fighting for her life... Rahul took Armaan to fresh up and make him eat as he emotionally blackmail him, when they came Muskaan and Kriti went to fresh up and have food as they didn't have a clue when Riddhima would come around...

They were counting the time as it feels like ages to move each second, suddenly nurse rushed out and came with doctor who kept asking several questions... Armaan move close to the door to see doctor attending Riddhima, he got the fear back not knowing what was happening to his Riddhima...

After 20 minutes, Doctor came out as he gave instruction to the nurse who kept nodding her head... When she left, Doctor face others knowing they were waiting to know about Riddhima's condition... Doctor look their faces and very well understood that they must haven't sleep a wink from last night...
'Mrs. Mallik koh hosh aagayi...' Doctor said...
'Kaisi hai woh Doctor...???' Muskaan asked...
'Kiya hum mil sakte hai usse...???' Kriti asked...
'Ji, hum bas use private ward mein shift karde ti hoon... Uske baad aap sab mil sakte hai...' Doctor said...
'Doctor, woh tik haina...' Armaan asked...
'Aap khud dekhlena Mr. Mallik...' Doctor said as he excuse when the nurse came asking to check some papers...

Soon Riddhima was shifted to private room, Muskaan and Kriti move inside to meet her while Armaan just stood not being sure if he should meet her or not... So many questions were in his mind thinking what she didn't remember him... Doctor might not knew about it yet as Riddhima hasn't meet anyone... She might remember Kriti and Muskaan but what if she forgot him...

Rahul saw how Armaan stood not moving as he was lost somewhere, fears were visible in his eyes as Rahul understood what must be going in his mind and heart at the moment... Rahul knows, they had to move inside than only they will know about Riddhima's condition...
'Itni dik tak tumne saha hai, tohdi der aur Armaan...' Rahul said...
'Rahul, kahin woh mujhe bhul...' Armaan couldn't continue...
'Bhul kar bhi woh nehi bhul paenge tumhe, kyunki tum uski pyar ho Armaan...' Rahul said...
'Phir bhi, woh mujhe pehchaan nehi paaye toh...' Armaan asked...
'Dekhte hai, woh tumhare pyar jeet ti hai ya nehi...' Rahul said moving inside with Armaan...

When both Armaan and Rahul move inside, Muskaan and Kriti turn around looking at them... Armaan stop at the door not daring to move inside as the fear of she might forget him was eating him from inside... Kriti was blocking their view so Armaan couldn't see Riddhima...
'Koan hai bua...' Riddhima voice echo the room making Armaan closed his eyes not being able to look towards her direction...

Kriti look at Riddhima who was laying on the bed, she gave a small smile to her before moving side letting Armaan come to his view... Feeling Riddhima gaze, Armaan slowly open his eyes as his eyes met with her beautiful orbs... Rahul stood closed to him as they look at Riddhima who look at them... Armaan saw something different in her eyes, he felt for a second that his hopes started to get shattered once again seeing the emptiness in her eyes seeing him in front of her...

Both kept looking at each other while others also didn't speak, Rahul look towards Muskaan who gave a small smile to him making him confused too... Armaan was also confused if the emptiness was the truth of their life or he was reading too much out from the border line... When Riddhima didn't react seeing him but kept looking at him with no emotions in her eyes, slowly Armaan heart started to break ones again realizing she was no more the one who loves him...
