part A : OUR LITTLE PARADISE 1

                               Image may contain: 8 people, baby and text
Light was dim but silent was broke with baby weeping sound, guy sit up on the bed getting startled as he try to understand what was happening... He look next to him, to see his beautiful wife sleeping but his trace broke again hearing baby weeping sound getting louder... When his mind realized what was happening, he quickly move out from the bed going round to the other side where the baby cot was next to their bed...



Not wanting his wife to wake up, knowing how much tired she must be the guy took the baby as he rocked the baby in his arms letting the baby head touch on his bare chest so it would feel his warmness and make it quiet... When he saw it was trying to suck, he look at beautiful wife but didn't feel to wake her so he move to the side table where the baby bottle, baby milk powder and water kept...

Holding the baby carefully in his one arm, he started to make the bottle as he still rock the baby slowly so it wouldn't cry making his wife awake as he knows how tired she must be... Before he could give the bottle, he heard weeping sound again, he look at the baby who was on his arms but seeing the baby quiet he move to the cot to see the other one moving in the sleep but ready to cry out...

The guy sleep vanished the moment he realized both newborn will be up if the other one wake too breaking the silent... Guy quickly make the one who was in his arm take the milk with the support to hold the bottle as he laid the baby back in the cot with small pillows around... He took the other one before it cry and rock him slowly as he make another bottle for the baby...

Checking the one who was on the cot while he gave the bottle to the other one, he hopes that both would got back to sleep after taking their late night milk but to his luck he heard weeping voice making him look at the cot to see the babies slowly waking from their sleep being hungry...
'Oh no...' He said as he look at his wife hoping her sleep wouldn't get disturb...

Keeping the baby who he was holding back in the cot, he quickly started to make more milk bottles as he kept an eye on the cot... Before he could make it, the weeping sound got loud and it turn to crying as he heard two voice at the same time...
'Ale le mela baccha's...' He try to talk hoping they would stop but it didn't seem they were going to listen to his voice at this time of the night...

Guy quickly move to the cot, taking both babies in his arms making them stop crying as he rock them slowly before giving the milk bottle... He look at the other two who was slowly going back to sleep as they suck the bottle nipple taking the milk, he smile as he make one baby laid with them and put the bottle nipple inside the baby mouth before it started to weep...

Guy was glad that without making any fuss, the baby started to drink the milk... He look at the one who was in his arms as he put the bottle nipple in the baby mouth making it take the milk, he look back at the babies who was on the cot as a satisfied smile form on his lips feeling bless to have the angels in his life...

Guy kept admiring the babies who came as a big surprise for him, he was unaware it was a quadruplets which very much rarely happen in medical world but his happiness has no limit the moment he saw the god beauties in front of him the moment they breath to the world...

Again silent was around the room with only their breath being heard softly, guy kept admiring as he was still not being able to accept he was living this beautiful moment with his wife and their babies... It was hard for him to digest this but being a month to the babies, it has started to slowly drown in mind as well in his heart that truly it was happening in his life...

Silent was again broke as the baby in his arms started to weep when the bottle was empty, guy check the other babies who has also finish their milk so he kept the bottles back on the table and started to burp the one who he was holding... Before the baby could burp, other babies also started to move in their sleep... Understanding they would need a fresh diapers, he quickly started to change the one who he was holding first before giving a change to the other babies...

Guy was hoping the other babies wouldn't start crying but seems like he hopes too much in a days becox nothing goes the way he hopes... He wasn't the person to complain so he do everything as much as he could to help his wife as they love their babies as they accepted them as god gifts...

Soon the room was filled with their crying, guy started to act faster but he was having a hard time to make them stop... He don't want his wife or any other person in the house to wake up as it was 3 am in the morning... The babies kept every single person busy and they all were loving it... Guy was doing his best to stop the babies crying as he kept talking to them...

While he was busy changing their diapers one after the other, he got surprise to see his wife wake up and coming to his rescue... She took two and put them on the swing which was near the baby cot, holding on in her arms she started to push the swing slowly making the babies stop crying...
'Tum kyun ut gayi...' Guy ask as he finally finished changing the babies diapers...
'Bacche itna ro rahi hai toh kaise main soti rahun...' Girl said looking at the ones who was in swing...
'Haan toh main handle kar raha ta na, u need rest baby...' Guy said moving close to his wife...
'Armaan Mallik, bacche hum dono ki hai... Main tumhe akele handle karne kaise de sakti hoon... Ek ki baat hoti toh tik hai lekin yaha chaar hai...' Girl said looking at her husband who stood close to her holding one of the baby...
'Riddhima Armaan Mallik, tum handle kar sakte toh main kyun nehi... After all I m the father of these kids...'Armaan said putting his hand around Riddhima waist...
'Armaan, tum jaante ho na even I can't handle ones they started to cry at the same time... Mom aur Nikki nehi hote toh bohot mushkil hota, aur Ma bhi toh aajkal zyada waqt humhare saath rehti hai...' Riddhima said quietly as the babies started to drown back to slumber...
'Agree, it seems they got the most precious things in their life...' Armaan said...
'Of course our babies are more precious things in the world for us, our parents, siblings and friends... How can anyone not love this bundles of happiness when its send from god...' Riddhima said looking at Armaan...
'I love you, for taking care of them when they were inside you... I love you, for bearing the pain to bring them in this world...' Armaan said kissing Riddhima temple making her smile feeling his unconditional towards her after being married to five years...
'I love you too Armaan... For choosing me as your wife, believing me that I m worth to be your life partner, daughter in law and sister in law to your family...' Riddhima said kissing his cheek making him smile showing the dimples...

They look at the babies as they have gone back to the deep slumber, making them laid back in their cot with blankets on their little bodies with pillows around them so they would get enough warmness Armaan and Riddhima move back to their bed as they laid hugging each other...

They stay like that for sometimes and when Riddhima felt Armaan kissing her forehead, she move a little looking at his face... Seeing the smile, she smile back asking through her eyes what he was thinking... Riddhima knows, it would be related to them or her... Maybe the babies as she has seen how difficult it was for him and every single person in the family to believe it after her delivery when first they got to know about it...

Still the day was fresh in her mind and she was so glad that she decided to capture every moment when their parents, siblings and friends met the bundle of happiness of their life... It was worth to capture so they could add it to their happy memories to be remind rest of their life to show their kids how much surprise they has bring to every single person life by coming to the world...
'I just realized why your belly has been so grown suddenly after three months... You manage it all alone and didn't let any of us aware of it till the end...' Armaan said holding her in his arms...
'Believe me Armaan, it was really hard for me but I know it would be worth when the babies come to the world... Remember the day when Niks and Anjali Di started to guess it might be twins or something...'Riddhima said hiding in Armaan arms as it was the most comfortable and safest place in the world...
'How can I forget, they were acting like teenagers... I mean Niks toh abhi bhi pad rahi hai but she is in age of getting married and Anjy is already married with a two yr old Aayan...' Armaan said...
'Muski ki baare mein bhul gayi kiya, she wasn't to be left behind when the argument started...' Riddhima said...
'Such mein, humhare sisters toh hai ki crazy but Muski also joins them in the craziness... Still u manage to keep them in the dark till the end...' Armaan said squeezing her in his arms...
'I thought u will ask me that day but my boring husband was too busy with his works to think it might be the reason I had been getting too much huge for having a single baby...' Riddhima said looking at his face as Armaan also look down at her...
'There never was a twin in either side of our family Riddhima so of course that wouldn't come cross my mind right but... I really love the surprise, it seems we plan for one and got three as a miracles... One was plan, other was a surprise and other two are miracles of our life... Still having all the four, it didn't come across my mind how we are gonna handle them because I believe, if god has send them all together he would make things work easy for us to rise them as well mannered and behave kids...' Armaan said touching his forehead against Riddhima's forehead...
'That's the reason I fall in love with you Armaan after being stranger at the beginning of our life together and soon become friends before being lovers... Our relation was fixed by our parents but god has already write our destination to be with each other from the starting of our new life...' Riddhima said looking at his eyes to see how much love it has for her...
'Life have been always smooth for me Riddhima, of course there was a moment that I had to work hard to reach where I m today... After we lost dad, every single responsibility came on my shoulder... Business, mom and Niks responsibility but I never feel it was too much for a single person... You know from the starting, I have no time to go out looking around to find a perfect girl for me, for my family... People know me as a angry and arrogant man who work day and night but the person when I m inside the wall of this house, only my mom and Niks knows... Now you, your parents and of course friends are aware of how much a family person I m in real...' Armaan said...
'I m glad I m a part of your life Armaan...' Riddhima said...
'And I m glad, you become my life Riddhima... I never thought, my journey would be so beautiful the day I met you, agree to marry you and now u make my family completed by giving the little bundles of happiness...' Armaan said...
'Couldn't have done without you Armaan, never forget this because they are a part of you and me not only me...' Riddhima said...
'I love you...' Armaan said before closing the distance between their lips...

Riddhima smile to the kiss as they share a slow promising one, promising each other that their love would be the same no matter what happen... Riddhima respond the kiss as they continue for a good three minutes before breaking it looking at each other with the unconditioned love they have to the other... Smiles were on their lips as they close their eyes, it took them to the memory lane as they remember the first time they met, fall in love and end up having a wonderful cute babies...

FLASH BACK START
AR FIRST MEETING

After meeting both families, they let Armaan and Riddhima talk alone... Anjali took them to the terrace, Nikki also accompany them with Muskaan who was Riddhima's best friend, but soon Nikki left with Anjali and Muskaan who was willing to give a tour around the Gupta Mansion...

While the elders were sitting in the hall, Armaan and Riddhima sit quietly as neither of them knows what to talk about... Riddhima was feeling very nervous so she was wrapping the corner of her dupatta in her finger, Armaan kept looking at her and smile seeing how she was reacting to feel his strong gaze...

Neither of them speak for several minutes, Riddhima keep stealing gazes while Armaan just keep looking at the beauty... Armaan like her the moment his eyes laid on her, he was happy with his mother choice seeing the simple girl who was sitting in front of him in a Purple Wine Georgette Anarkali suit which has full sleeves... She was wearing matching earrings and single bracelet with a ring one hand while a ring on the other hand, eyeliner on her expressive big gorgeous green eyes and pink lip gloss as only make up...

Armaan who always like girls in traditional suits and saree's were amaze to see how simple yet beautiful Riddhima was looking at this attire, he felt a new emotion developing in his heart but ignore as he think it would be better to take things slowly step by step... Seeing Armaan lost in her, Riddhima thought to break silent as she was feeling uncomfortable as well as nervous under his strong gaze...
'Aap chai lenge ya coffee...' Riddhima ask moving her hands to the tray which was already kept on the table between them as they sit facing each other...
'Black coffee without sugar...' Armaan said hearing her melodic voice which make his heart race for a second as he felt it was rhythm to his ears...

Without saying anything, Riddhima make what Armaan wants and forward it to him who gladly accept it... Riddhima put the snacks plates close to him who deny showing his hand but Riddhima just let it there so if he change his mind, he could have whatever he likes...
'Toh aap chef ho, maine suna hai aap bohot accha khana banate hai...' Armaan ask finally breaking the silent...
'Haan woh mujhe bachpan se khana bana na bohot accha lagta hai, toh maine hotel management join ki and now I owe a small cafe' where i train people and supervise them... I cook special dish on particular days of the week so it wouldn't be hard to handle the cafe' as well...' Riddhima said looking at her hands...
'Toh shaadi ke baad bhi aap kaam karenge...' Armaan asked...
'Jo kaam mujhe khushi deti hai main shaadi ke baad bhi karna chahti hoon... Aur yeh sirf mere liye kaam nehi, meri sapna hai jo main jee rahi hoon...' Riddhima said...
'Lekin jisse aapki shaadi ho, woh nehi chahte toh aap kiya karenge...' Armaan asked...
'Jisse meri sapne se problem hai, meri kaam se na khush hai... Aise insaan ke saath main shaadi karne ke liye haan nehi kahungi, kyunki jo bhi meri haath thaame usse meri sapnon koh rokhna nehi chahiyeh balki meri saath dena chahiyeh... Shaadi se pehle meri khushi ki koi value nehi hai toh woh meri nazar mein meri layak nehi hai kyunki saamne wala koh yeh samajhna hoga ek ladki uski sab kuch chodke uske saath, uske ghar mein, uske pariwaar ke beech rehne jaenge jo hai ki uske liye nayi log hoga, nayi jhaga hai waha adjust karne ke liye tayyar hai toh meri sapnon mein meri saath na de sakhte toh uske life mein meri bhi value nehi hai ki woh yeh na soche meri bhi apni khushi chunne ka hak hai toh aise insaan se shaadi karne ka koi matlab nehi hai...' Riddhima said...
'Hmm, toh aap apni kaam ke saath saath ghar ka bhi responsibilties utapaenge...???' Armaan asked...
'Zarur utapaungi kyunki shaadi se pehle bhi har ladki koh apne pariwar ke liye ek zimmadaari hoti hai aur shaadi ke baad bhi kyunki tab log badhal jaenge lekin pariwaar uski hogi jitna apni pati ka... Aur koi kaam mushkil nehi hote, humein bas usse sambhalna aana chahiyeh... Doh kaam balance kare toh sab kuch asaani se hojaenge, phir kissi koh problem nehi hogi hum humhare sapne koh lekar nayi zindagi mein aage bade... Aur mera yeh maanna hai, ladkiya ghar aur bacche sambhal sakte hai toh apni khud ka sapna kyun nehi sambhal sakte... Haan yeh toh hogi ki ladkiyon ki first priority shaadi ke baad husband aur uske in laws hoga lekin iska yeh matlab nehi na shaadi ke baad ladkiyon koh uske sapne jeene ka hak nehi hai...' Riddhima said...

Armaan was satisfied with Riddhima answer, he has a smile on his face and was glad that he had this conversation with her... He knows he would be busy in his work most the day and sometimes in night too, also he knows her mother wouldn't mind his wife work after taking care of the household... It's not like him or his mother would stop any girl who comes in their life to do what she wish or dream but seeing how Riddhima answer without caring he might reject to the alliance, she still tell him what she thinks about marriage, wants after marriage and the responsibilities she had to take...

Riddhima look towards Armaan when he didn't speak, she lower her gaze seeing Armaan was staring at her with a satisfied smile... Riddhima hope that whatever she said, it could make him understand what she wants after her marriage if by any chance they end up getting married... She wouldn't mind if he reject her, seeing how well he was dress up and knowing he is a son of her father friend who is well known in the business industry Riddhima don't know what he would think of her seeing her dress in something tradition when he used to be around several modern girls everywhere he goes...

Before either of them could say anything more, Anjali, Muskaan and Nikki came to take them inside as Armaan mother and Riddhima parents were calling them down to know what they have decide... When Armaan move ahead leaving Riddhima with Anjali and Muskaan, Nikki follow him to know what he think about Riddhima... Anjali and Muskaan look at Riddhima who was standing nervously looking at the back of Armaan as Nikki also move behind him...
'Accha haina...???' Anjali ask moving close to Riddhima hugging her from side...
'Mujhe accha hone se kiya hoga Di, Armaan aur uske pariwar koh bhi main pasand hona chahiyeh...'Riddhima said hugging Anjali back...
'Matlab uska haan hai toh tumhein bhi yeh rishte se koi problem nehi hai...???' Muskaan asked...
'Haan Muski lekin...???' Riddhima stop as she didn't know if Armaan like how she think of working after marriage or not...
'Lekin kiya Ridzy...???' Anjali ask moving out from the hug looking at Riddhima...
'Di, maine Armaan koh yeh toh kehdiya main shaadi ke baad bhi kaam karna chahti hoon...' Riddhima said...
'Toh Armaan ne kiya kaha...???' Muskaan ask knowing how much her works mean to Riddhima, it was her dream and they knows Riddhima wouldn't ever give up on that...
'He didn't say anything about it... Armaan is rishte koh haan kehte bhi toh main haan nehi kahungi if he don't let me work after marriage...' Riddhima said...
'Koi baat nehi Ridzy, tab dekhenge hum kiya kar sakte hai... Yeh baatein shaadi se pehle clear ho toh accha hoga kyunki hum sab jaante hai woh cafe' tumhare liye kitna important hai...' Anjali said...
'Haan Di, papa aur ma ke kehne pe maine Armaan se mil chuki hoon... Ab dekhte hai uska kiya jawab hoga, jo bhi ho main chahti hoon uske haan kehne se pehle usko batadun main kiya chahti hoon shaadi ke baad... Ab woh meri baat samajhe toh accha hai nehi toh main khud is rishte koh mana kardungi...' Riddhima said...
'I don't think he would mind and neither Aunty as Nikki told us how open minded they are, how Aunty give the space and freedom they wish to have in their life till now...' Muskaan said...
'But Muski, they are her children and I would be the daughter in law of the house... Tohda toh fark hogi hi jaanne ya anjaane mein...' Riddhima said...
'Chalo dekhte hai, kyunki har koi bahu koh bahu ki tarah nehi balki beti ki tarah bhi rakhte hai... Ab yeh dekhna hai Aunty tumhe bahu ke ruhpe accept karti hai ya beti ke tarah...' Anjali said...
'Jo bhi ho Di, I just hope meri kaam karne se problem na ho...' Riddhima said...

They move down letting everything else to god, by the time they came Mallik was standing with Riddhima parents as they wait for Riddhima, Anjali and Muskaan... Armaan mother, Nandini Mallik came forward kissing Riddhima forehead and hugs her before looking towards Riddhima parents...
'Bhaisaab, mujhe Riddhima bohot pasand hai lekin dono bacchon ki haan ke bina hum is rishte koh aage nehi bada sakte... Armaan, baccha tumhara kiya jawab hai...' Nandini said looking at Armaan who was standing next to Nikki who was smiling showing her whole sets of white teethes...

Everyone eyes turn to Armaan but he was looking at Riddhima hoping she would look towards him to know what his answer would be, when Armaan didn't answer for a second or so Riddhima also look towards him to see him staring back at her as their eyes met for the first time from last one hour he has step in the Mansion...
'Bhai...' Nikki nudge him making his trace break, Armaan look at her and back to others before his eyes move on Riddhima...
'Mujhe rishta qabool hai...' Armaan said making Riddhima surprise and move her gaze away from him as she lower her eyes looking at her hand knowing now everyone would want to hear her answer...
'Riddhima bacchi, aapko yeh rishta qabool hai...' Nandini ask caring her hair...
'Woh mujhe...' Riddhima look towards her parents and to Armaan...
'Koi baat nehi beti, aapko waqt chahiye toh hum aapki jawab ka inthizaar karenge... Jitna chahiyeh, utna le lo... Bhabhi Ji aur Bhaisaab ne already humein bata diya aap shaadi ke baad bhi apni kaam continue karna chahte hai... Mujhe is baat se koi problem nehi hai Bacchi, kyunki woh aapki passion hai aur shaadi ho ya na ho, aap apni passion koh kissi ke liye chodna nehi chahiyeh... Na main aapko mana karungi, Na Armaan mana karenge kyunki hum khush hai humein aap jaisa independent ladki mili jo khud ki business sambhalte hai na ki kissi aur pe depended hogi...' Nandini said making Riddhima shocked while Anjali and Muskaan happy...

Anjali and Muskaan knew that Nandini wouldn't deny Riddhima working after marriage because from Nikki, they got to know Nandini still work as a social worker and wants her kids to be on their feet by their hard work so they wouldn't have to depend on anyone now or in future...

Hearing how Nandini was clearing everything let Riddhima know how much Nandini wants to make her a part of their life, also Riddhima felt a connection with Nandini as she didn't feel for a second that she was Armaan mother... It seems like Nandini has already accepted her as daughter, not as daughter in law which make Riddhima don't want to think about the alliance further...
'Mujhe qabool hai...' Riddhima whisper making every single person smile as happiness sparkles in their eyes...

Soon Nikki, Anjali and Muskaan was hugging her congratulating while others also congratulate each other and feed sweets but after feeding Armaan and Riddhima... All this time, Armaan gaze was fixed on Riddhima which didn't go unnoticed by Anjali, Muskaan and Nikki... Riddhima kept her head lower very well knowing Armaan eyes weren't leaving from her for a second when the question was ask to her and now she has already given her answer still his eyes were fixed on her as if waiting for her to look at him to make sure if she is happy with it or not...

Finally when the Mallik's took permission to leave telling they would meet soon to fixed a perfect date for Armaan and Riddhima engagement as well wedding, Riddhima look towards Armaan as she wanted to see him before he leaves with Nandini and Nikki... Armaan gave a small smile to Riddhima the moment their eyes which Riddhima return as she break the eye-lock feeling Anjali nudging her while Nikki hold Armaan arm getting his attention towards her... Greeting Riddhima Parents, Mallik left as Nandini gave bless and love to Riddhima before they move out from Gupta Mansion already planning to meet soon...

A YEAR LATER

'Bhabs, meri sandwich...' Nikki call as she sit near the dining table taking the jug and pouring juice from it to glass...
'Nikki, kitni baar kaha hai tumse... Choti choti kaamon ke liye usko pareshan mat karo...' Nandini said who was already sitting waiting for her kids...
'Mom, ab ismein pareshani ki kiya baat hai...' Riddhima said coming from the kitchen holding a plate of sandwich and paratta in other plate...
'Baccha, aap sab kaam akele karte ho aur mujhe ya kissi aur koh help tak karne nehi dete... Ghar mein servants haina, kyun itna kaam karte ho...' Nandini said...
'Mom, mujhe khushi milti hai jo bhi kaam main aap logo ke liye karti hoon... Aur yeh meri farz bhi haina, main apnon ka khayal rakkun...' Riddhima said serving them...
'That's why I love you bhabs...' Nikki said hugging Riddhima around her waist...
'Aur yeh apni khayal bilkul nehi rakte mom...' Their moment got break with sudden appearance of Armaan...

Three ladies look towards him as he took his seat, Riddhima move to serve him but Armaan stop showing his hand, Riddhima frown knowing Armaan don't like it but still she manage to serve him before she move away only to be held back by Armaan hold on her wrist... Nandini and Nikki smile seeing their bonding, its been almost 9 months to their marriage and they were happy to see how Riddhima has make special bond with every single person in the family...

Riddhima was always comfortable around Nandini and Nikki but it took sometimes for her to be comfortable and open up with Armaan, in front of the world they are husband wife but both were still trying to accept the relation by taking the first step becoming friends... Armaan was trying to make her feel comfortable around him every moment they get alone or be with family, Armaan behavior towards her make Riddhima slowly accept him as a part of her life... Armaan small gesture towards her was giving a warm feeling to her heart as she started to believe that one day they would accepted each other as husband wife...

All try to make Riddhima feel family from the first day she step in the house being a part of their family, with love and care they make Riddhima believe she belongs there which make her take care of her new family but still, she get scold from Armaan for not taking care of herself while she take care of everyone needs being herself busy in her own work as well handling household like a perfect daughter in law, sister in law and a wife...
'Beito...' Armaan said still not leaving her hand...
'Woh main...' Riddhima was cut by Armaan...
'Maine kaha beito Riddhima, tum koi kaam nehi karonge jab tak tum acche se breakfast nehi karte humhare saath...' Armaan said determine to make her agree...
'Main karlungi na lekin abhi mujhe...' Riddhima was cut by Nandini this time...
'Koi kaam nehi hai, aapne already sab kardi... Ab chup chaap beito aur humhare saath breakfast karo...'Nandini said taking Armaan side...

When Nandini finally speak against her supporting Armaan, Riddhima has no option left... Nikki serve her like she do every time when other two Mallik's make Riddhima sit to have meal with them, they had make sure that Riddhima have meals with them so she wouldn't be left alone when she is a part of their family... Seeing Riddhima sulking, they hide their smile knowing very well she didn't like when they force to eat with them...
'Ab muh bana na band karo, jab tak tum yeh sab khatam nehi karte... Hum mein se koi kaam pe nehi jaenga na tumhe jaane dungi...' Armaan said finally leaving her hand...

Hearing Armaan, Riddhima quickly started to have food because if Armaan said it than he means it too as she had seen the demo the very first month after their marriage... Everyone smile seeing how quickly Riddhima obey Armaan very well knowing the reason behind it, they also continue with breakfast while Nandini and Armaan started to discuss about some company work as Armaan always share what happen in their business with his mother just to keep her update about the going work in the company which belongs to her as much as Nikki and Armaan...

When they finished, Nandini and Nikki left to get ready to go their respective works while Armaan also stood up to leave... Riddhima who was collecting the empty plates look at him as he smile moving close to her making her move a step or two behind... Armaan smile seeing how Riddhima still get nervous when he move close to her every time...
'Kya kar rahe ho yeh tum...' Riddhima ask moving her attention back to her work...
'Kyun...' Armaan asked as if asking what she thinks he was up to...
'Marie, yeh plates andar rakhlo aur table saaf karde na plates saaf karne se pehle...' Riddhima call a servant ignoring Armaan...

Armaan make distance between them when the servant came, he move to left being disappointed that Riddhima didn't give attention to him... Riddhima smile very well knowing he was just trying to say bye before leaving, giving the work to the servant Riddhima turn around to see Armaan moving towards the door...
'Armaan...' Riddhima call him making him stop...
'I m getting late Riddhima, will meet you in lunch...' Armaan said turning looking at her...

Riddhima smile hearing it, as she always take lunch to him to his office they would have together to make sure that each other have food on time... Also it gives a chance to spend sometimes alone and developing of the feelings towards each other make them wanted to spend every single minute with each other, what if they don't confess but their hearts were sending signals and keep them connected...
'Any special request for lunch...???' Riddhima ask moving close to him and correcting his tie...
'Not really because everything you cook, its worth to enjoy...' Armaan said smiling with her action...
'Ok than meet you at lunch...' Riddhima said resting her hand on his chest as she look at him meeting her eyes with his...
'Sure...' Armaan said moving close and kissing her forehead making Riddhima close her eyes feeling the love as a smile adore on her lips...

When Armaan move out looking at her face, he capture her expression knowing it would make his day to spend... It has become a routine from last five months that Armaan kiss on her forehead every times he go out for work or anywhere else just to let Riddhima knows she is a part of his life... Riddhima open her eyes knowing it was what Armaan needs before he leave to work, just a little moment to cheris being with each other before going to their respective works...
'Bye...' Riddhima whisper knowing he wouldn't leave unless she give him a sign to go ahead...
'Bye, take care...' Armaan said, caring Riddhima cheek making Riddhima believe how much she means to him...

Both smile at each other as Riddhima felt a shiver run down her spine feeling Armaan caring her cheek making the color turn to dark shade... Armaan move back and left waving his hand, Riddhima also wave him as she watch him leave as both started to count the time when the day would end so they would see each other again... The emotions were getting stronger and stronger in their heart that they can't be away without seeing the other for much time...

A MONTH LATER

Everything was going smooth in Armaan and Riddhima life, it was going to be a year to their marriage soon... As they haven't gone to honeymoon, as they decide they want to delay it, it keeps delaying and now their first anniversary was around the corner... Both had been busy in their work as well Riddhima taking care of her new family members and responsibilities...

Nandini didn't force or pressure them to think about taking a vacation from work and spend times with each other so they would get to know more, seeing how both were getting comfortable, specially Riddhima who used to be nervous around Armaan, Nandini thought it was high time they spend few weeks alone, roaming around and experience new emotions and feelings which clearly shown in their behavior and their eyes for each other...

Even Armaan and Riddhima was thinking about the growing feelings in their heart whenever they end up getting close... It's true that they haven't consummate their married yet, but being together for almost a year, getting to know each other every passing days and months they had started to have feelings for each other too...

Armaan was a caring and kind person, who take care of Riddhima's need just like she do for him... Riddhima also was taking care of his needs just like a wife making Armaan want to think about the next step so they would built a future if they are willing to spend rest of their life with each other... Both were thinking how to talk about it as they weren't sure of what the other think but they sometimes feel that the other also have feelings but wasn't sure as neither of them were ready to take the first step to let the other know...

So as now a month was left to their first anniversary, both were thinking how to confess... They were hell nervous not knowing how the other would react, Riddhima thought to talk Anjali while Armaan just keep dealing with his feelings alone struggling to understand if he should do it and leave rest to the god knowing whatever happen, she is and would be his wife because she is living a life she wants after marriage which maybe no other guy would allowed...

CAFE'

Riddhima was in the office area which was attach to her cafe', keeping an eye on her employees and the customers... Her mind was busy thinking what to do to let Armaan knows that she was ready to take their relation to next level because it was the only thing she could give to him to make their relation stronger and hold it till the end of their life...

Riddhima was thinking if she should talk to Anjali or not, she wasn't sure how Anjali would react... Anjali was married before Riddhima and now is bless with a baby boy few months before... As it would be a year to Riddhima married and if Anjali learn they hasn't consummate yet, she don't know how she will react but somewhere Riddhima knows Anjali would understand because it was a arrange marriage unlike Anjali marriage which was a love marriage...

Riddhima trace was broke hearing a soft knock, she wonder who it was as she check the time which shows 10 am... She look at the screen which shows every corner of the cafe' to check if any employee was missing thinking anyone could come to talk her knowing she was there...
'Come in...' Riddhima said as she move her eyes to the door...
'Hi Ridzy...' Anjali said coming with her five months old baby...
'Di, what a pleasant surprise and look who has visit his masi... Aww my baby...' Riddhima said taking Anjali baby boy in her arms cuddling with him...
'Yup, we thought of visiting this little one masi as she don't have a single second for us from last one month...'Anjali said as she kept the baby bag on the coffee table which was kept in a side along with comfortable couch...
'Di, ending of the year and starting of new year keeps me always busy and u know it right...' Riddhima said sitting on the couch with the baby on her lap...
'Right and sadly I m trap this time so can't help you even...' Anjali said sitting next to Riddhima caring her baby boy hair...
'Lekin aaj aap yaha kaise, aur woh bhi baby ke saath...' Riddhima asked as she slowly rocked the baby in her arms...
'Went for his monthly check up and I m craving for your delicious pastries...' Anjali said giving her best smile making Riddhima laugh...
'Seems like your mother hormones are still not on its right place baccha...' Riddhima said looking at the baby and nuzzling her nose with his small ones making him smile with his beautiful smile...
'Haan haan karlo tease but jis din tum bhi pregnant hogi aur yeh sab cravings hogi toh samjhenge meri baat...'Anjali said resting her head on the headboard of the couch...
'Right, but for now let me feed you your favorite pastries...' Riddhima said moving to the table to call to the kitchen where her employee was working while others were in the cafe' taking care of the customers...
'Yes please and it should be chocolaty...' Anjali said as she closed her eyes...

Riddhima smile seeing how crazy Anjali was about her pastries, when she was expecting her baby she would come every day and night to enjoy the yummy pastries and other dishes Riddhima cook... Riddhima happily fulfilled her craving because she was going to give a little bundle of happiness to her making her a aunt... Every single person pamper her in the months of her pregnancy but did take care of her health so it wouldn't give any complication till the date...

After giving order for Anjali favorite pastries, Riddhima move back to see Anjali resting with her eyes closed... Riddhima can understand how difficult it would be to handle the baby as she was new to this but very happy to experience this phase of life...
'So...' Anjali asked feeling Riddhima sitting next to her...
'So what Di...' Riddhima asked as she kept looking at the baby who was trying to get hold of Riddhima hair...
'Ridzy, first anniversary is next month... Did you plan anything for Armaan...???' Anjali asked looking at her sitting straight facing her...
'Nehi Di, abhi kuch socha nhi...' Riddhima said as she kept caring the baby chubby cheek with her finger tips...
'Common Ridzy, sochna kiya hai... I know you guys haven't consummate yet but I think it high time you guys move on in your life...' Anjali said...
'I m also thinking about it Di, in these months I got sure about my feelings towards Armaan... He is kind and caring, a husband any girl would dream to have in her life but, I don't know how I should tell him this...'Riddhima said...
'Do something special for him Ridzy...' Anjali said...
'Are you sure Di...???' Riddhima asked...
'Are you sure that you are willing to spend rest of your life with him Ridzy...???' Anjali question her back...
'Yes Di, very much...' Riddhima said..
'Than go for it Ridzy... Make him realized you are ready to move on with him...' Anjali said taking her baby as he was getting crackly being hungry...

Anjali got busy with her baby as she started to feed him and rocking him slowly in her lap, Riddhima kept staring at them but her mind was busy thinking what to do that Armaan will understand she is ready to take the next step of their life ahead because she has started to fall in love with him... Anjali look at Riddhima and seeing her lost, Anjali understood Riddhima would do something this time as she was sure she wanted to live her life with Armaan...

MALLIK MANSION

Armaan came home little early than his usual time, looking around he went to check where Nandini was as she wasn't in the hall where usually he find her by the time he comes back... Armaan peeped inside Nandini room to see her sitting on the bed reading some magazine, but seeing she kept turning the page without giving interest in what was written on it Armaan move inside not making any noise to see Nandini lost in somewhere...

When Nandini didn't feel his present, Armaan move close to her laying down with his head on her lap getting her attention... Nandini who was thinking about Armaan and Riddhima, got little startled feeling a weight on her lap, she move the magazine to see Armaan laying looking towards her... Nandini smile to see him as he never forget to meet her the moment he enter the house...

After working whole day, Armaan make sure that Nandini and Nikki is well or if they need anything... Armaan knows Riddhima is taking a good care of them, specially Nandini as she has low blood pressure problem after death of his father... Armaan has witness how much in love his parents were and it came as a shocked to them when they lost the head of the family due to the sudden heart attack he got...

Nandini care Armaan hair feeling the undying love for her from her son, Nandini was very happy in her life but still miss her husband absent because he is father of her children... To fulfilled his last which, Nandini put the proposal of Riddhima in front of Armaan... Armaan was aware of how much his father Karan Mallik wants to make Riddhima as their daughter in law...

Nandini was happy that Riddhima also agree to the alliance by making unknowingly Karan wish fulfilled by coming in their life... However, neither Armaan or Nandini mention about it to Riddhima or Nikki because they don't want specially Riddhima to think that Armaan agree to marry her because it was his father's last wish...
'Kiya huva baccha...' Nandini asked seeing Armaan closing his eyes...
'Bas aapko dekhne aayi ti mom, kiya soch rahe ho aap...' Armaan ask opening his eyes as Nandini started to care his hair...
'Tumhara aur Riddhima ke baare mein...' Nandini said making Armaan ask through eyes what about them...

Nandini smile seeing Armaan unspoken words, she thought maybe Armaan forgot about their anniversary next month... Nandini was thinking to send them to their pending honeymoon and this time she wouldn't hear any excuse...
'Armaan, tumhe Riddhima ke saath tohda waqt akele spend karna chahiye baccha... Tum dono ke shaadi koh ek saal hone koh aaya hai... Aur abhi tak dono ghumne bhi nehi gayi, pehle maine kuch nehi kaha kyunki tum dono ek dusre koh itni acche tarahse jaante nehi ti lekin ab tum dono ek dusre koh bohot acche se jaante ho... Armaan, shayad Riddhima yeh kahenge nehi tumse lekin woh bhi chahti hogi tum uske liye tohda waqt nikale, usse ghumne le jaae aur uske saath waqt bitae bina koi kaam ki..' Nandini said...
'I know mom, I was thinking the same... Main Riddhima se baat karta hoon phir usse jaha pasand hai, wohi jaenge hum...' Armaan said...
'Armaan, main jaanti hoon tum dono kaam ke wajahse ab tak yeh baat koh ignore karke aaye ho... Lekin main hoon, Nikki hai and I m sure Riddhima's parents would handle her work in her absent... 2 hafte ki toh baat hai, apne liye, ek dusre ke liye waqt nikalna chahiyeh taaki tum dono baat kare, aur yeh faisla le sakhe aage kiya karna chahte hai...' Nandini said...
'Mom, we will...' Armaan said...
'Phir jhaldi tum dono decide karlo kaha jaana hai, aur haan 2 hafte atleast is ghar se baahar rehna chahiyeh tum dono koh, aur kaam se bhi dur samjhe...' Nandini said...
'Aap hum dono koh bhaga rahe ho...???' Armaan asked...
'Ab tum dono yeh samajhne ke liye tayyar nehi toh mujhe aisa hi karna chahiyeh na...' Nandini said...
'Ok, hum isbaar mana nehi karunga mom... Happy...???' Armaan asked holding her hand and kissing it...
'Very much...' Nandini said bending and kissing his forehead...

Armaan smile seeing the smile on his mother face, he move off from her lap and kiss her cheeks before moving out from the bed as he left to get fresh up... Armaan knows, Riddhima wouldn't be back in home yet so he left to fresh up before Riddhima comes... As it would be dinner time in a while, Riddhima would come and go back to cafe' to closed and Armaan accompany her because he don't like her travelling alone at night when he is free from work and stay in home that time...

Nandini keep staring at the door from where Armaan left, smile wasn't leaving from her lips thinking finally Armaan and Riddhima will move on in their life as somewhere she just felt still they haven't because they treat each other like friends more than being husband wife... If they had, Nandini knows Armaan wouldn't leave a chance to flirt with Riddhima because he do with her too when Karan was alive...

Remembering about Karan, Nandini look at the side table where she has kept a frame with Karan and their family... She has another photo, which was taken in Armaan wedding and Nandini miss not having Karan by her side that day because it was their son marriage...
'Jaisa aapne chaaha, waisa huva Karan... Kash aap saath hote toh aap dekh paate aapke buddy kitna khush hai us rishte koh lekar... Riddhima bohot acchi hai, perfect bahu hai humhare liye... Main jaanti hoon, aapne socha hai toh accha hi hoga aur waisa hi huva hai Karan... Kash aap hote yaha, Riddhima ke liye aashirwat dene aur pyar bhi jo usse yaha ek pita se milni chahiyeh...' Nandini said as she care Karan picture with small tears in her eyes as she was missing him a lot today...
