Part 5 : Shikayat 2 - An AR SS -


Everyone was waiting for Armaan and Riddhima, after Nikki has come informing that Riddhima said they would shortly joins them for dinner, they were waiting in the hall as they didn't know how long they would take... It was more than half an hour, Karan thought to check on them to make sure if they are coming or should they start without waiting for them...

Before Karan could asked Nikki to go and check one more time, they heard footsteps and look towards the stairs to see Armaan and Riddhima coming holding each other hand... Nikki and Karan smile seeing how Riddhima manage to bring Armaan down for dinner, Padma was happy to see Armaan little better as she was hoping to see his single expression when he eat foods cook by her...

It would be the first time that Armaan or any Mallik would be going to have food cook by her... Padma knows, she can't competitive with Riddhima as she hardly do cooking having servants in the house but Riddhima prefer to make dinner or breakfast whenever she get time so she is the greatest cook among them...

Soon they were sitting around the dinning table as Padma and Riddhima serve them, Nikki also was going to serve Karan but Riddhima stop her asking her to sit with others for dinner... Karan asked Riddhima and Padma to joins them too but they deny saying not before they serve others...


So after serving them, Riddhima sit next to Armaan while Padma sit next to Shashank... Karan and Nikki already start with their food, they started to praise Padma for the delicious foods as it always make them remember of Nandini when any one cook for them...

Padma look at Armaan who was just sitting playing with his food, Riddhima who was listening to others saw Padma looking towards Armaan so she also look at her side to see Armaan just staring at his plate without eating... Riddhima knows still Armaan must be thinking about what happen tonight, Riddhima look at Padma who gave her a small smile as she look back at her plate...

Riddhima look at Armaan and hold his hand under the table making Armaan look towards her... Riddhima show Padma through her eyes to which Armaan move his gaze away from her looking their surrounding... Armaan was too lost in his world, he didn't realized when Riddhima and Padma sit with them...

Seeing Padma silently having her dinner, Armaan look back at Riddhima who shows his plate as if asking what he needs to do now... Armaan look at his plate which was filled with his favorite foods, he look back at Riddhima who blink her eyes as if asking to go ahead... Armaan gave a small smile to her and put first bite in his mouth as he chew it and force it down from his throat which was block due to crying from last few hours...

Riddhima kept looking at him as he slowly taste every foods which she has serve for him, Armaan who very well could feel her gaze look back at her before moving his gaze to Padma who was trying to be a part of the conversation which was happening between Karan, Shashank and Nikki... Riddhima again squeeze his hand softly as she was still holding it, Armaan knew what he has to do...
'Ma...' Armaan call Padma...

Everyone got silent hearing Armaan voice, all look at him while Riddhima smile knowing how well Armaan understood what he needs to do... Riddhima ask through her eyes from others do go back to their conversation as Armaan wouldn't feel comfortable if others attention was on him...
'Kiya huva baccha...' Padma ask as Shashank and Karan continue their conversation...
'Khana bohot accha hai ma, thank you...' Armaan said...
'Aapko accha laga, main bohot khush hoon...' Padma said smiling to him...

Rest of the dinner pass like that, Padma was smiling as Armaan like the food where else Nikki just can't stop praising her... While Riddhima talk to Padma and Nikki, Armaan just kept quiet as he finish his food... Once they finished, Armaan left without saying anything or giving anyone a chance to stop him...

Everyone knows he would need sometimes alone, so they didn't stop him... Others sit in the hall as they talk about the coming function which was Armaan and Riddhima reception... As the marriage took place the previous night, they thought to keep the reception a day after knowing both groom and bride would be very tired after all the rituals...

Also Karan and Shashank personally wants to check the arrangement, so they could make it memorable for their kids... They talk for another hour before Shashank said they should leave now, neither Karan try to stop them as he knows Riddhima might want to go back to Armaan as soon as possible but her parent present were making her stay back...

Wishing each other, Gupta left while Karan and Nikki sit in the hall... Riddhima who came after seeing off her parents, move to Karan and Nikki to ask if they need anything before she goes and check on Armaan... From the moment Armaan left the dinning table, her mind was only thinking about him...
'Beti, tum jaakar Armaan koh dekho...' Karan said...
'Dad...' Riddhima was cut by Karan...
'Nikki haina, mujhe kuch chahiyeh toh main Nikki koh kehdunga...' Karan said...
'Haan Bhabs, aap jao...' Nikki said...
'Goodnight dad...' Riddhima said taking blessing from Karan...
'Goodnight beti...' Karan said caring Riddhima hair...
'Goodnight Bhabs...' Nikki said...
'Goodnight Kido...' Riddhima said giving a hug to her before leaving to her room...

Karan and Nikki kept looking at Riddhima as she left and still she reach first floor to go to the room... When she was out of their sight, Nikki look at Karan who was sitting next to her... Nikki hugs her father, who still kept looking the direction where Riddhima went...
'Kiya huva Dad...' Nikki asked...
'Koi itna accha kaise ho sakte hai bacche...' Karan ask looking at Nikki...
'Bhabs ke baare mein soch rahe ho na aap...' Nikki asked to make sure...
'Haan Bacche, jabse humhare zindagi mein aaye hai tabse sab kuch khud sambhalte aayi hai... Kabhi shikayat nehi ki kissi baat ki aur Armaan koh bhi accept karliya...' Karan said...
'Aap jaante ho Dad, Bhabs woh pehli ladki hai jisse bhai ne dosti ki... Jisne kabhi issiliye bhai se dosti nehi ki kyunki woh ek ameer ghar koh belong karte hai, balki issiliye usse bhai ka fikar hai... Bhai ka, dard aur dukh samajh ke usse sambhalne ke liye...' Nikki said...
'Yeh baat tumne bhikul sahi kaha bacche... Mujhe abhi bhi yakeen nehi ho raha, Riddhima humhare family ka hissa ban gaye hai...' Karan said...
'Woh toh kabse humhara apna banchuki ti Dad... Pehle din se Bhabs ne is ghar koh, hum sabko apna maan chuka hai... Aur humne, hum bhi toh Bhabs koh pehle mulakaat se apna hi samjhi haina...' Nikki said...
'Woh hai hi itni acchi, kaise na samjhu woh apna hai... Mujhe yakeen nehi huva, jab mujhe pata chala tumhari Bhabs tumhare bhai koh pasand karti hai... Main chaahta ta Riddhima beti is ghar ki bahu banke aaye, lekin uske marzi se... Na ki hum chaahte hai kyunki Armaan kab kiya banjate hai, humein koi idea nehi hota...' Karan said...
'Dad, aapne ek baat notice kiya... Us incident ke baad, jab bhai bacche ban gaya ta aur tik hone ke baad aaj tak woh ek baar bhi aise nehi bana... Haan yeh baat sach hai, bhai koh us dar se abhi tak chutkara nehi mila lekin Bhabs bohot koshish kar rahi hai...' Nikki said...
'Haan bacchi, kaise yaad nehi hoga... Riddhima beti ki wajahse toh humein humhara Armaan waapas mila jo mature ta... Aur mujhe pura yakeen hai, Riddhima sab kuch sambhalenge... Humhare Armaan koh kabhi kuch hone nehi denge...' Karan said...
'Hmm, aaj mom ki bohot yaad aa rahi hai dad...' Nikki said hugging him resting her head on his shoulder...
'Mujhe bhi bacchi, lekin jo huva hum badhal toh nehi sakte na...' Karan said caring Nikki head...
'I know dad, aapko pata chala woh kaise huva...' Nikki asked...
'Nehi baccha, koi clue nehi mila... Police bhi kuch nehi kar sakte, kyunki koi clue nehi mila woh aang lagaya gaya ta ya lagwaya gaya...' Karan said...
'Hmm, anyways dad... It's getting late, we should go to sleep... Kal bohot kaam haina aapko...' Nikki said...
'Haan, after all tumhari Bhabs ke liye reception toh accha rakna hai...' Karan said...
'I know dad, she is the best... Bhabs ke liye toh humhare tarafse sab perfect hona chahiye...' Nikki said...
'Haan, aur bacchi mera ek kaam kardena...' Karan said as they stood up to leave...
'Koansa kaam dad...' Nikki asked...
'Make sure that Riddhima beti ki dress tayyar hai... Jo humne decide kiya na, wohi pehennenge woh... Aur tumhara bhai ka bhi, ok...???' Karan said...
'Dad, itni si baat... Woh toh kabka ready hai, maine apne paas rakka hai meri room mein...' Nikki said...
'That's wonderful bacchi, I love u bacchi...' Karan said...
'Love you too dad...' Nikki said hugging him...
'Chalo ab sone chalte hai, nehi toh teri bhabs phirse aajaenge dekhne hum sone gaye ya nehi...' Karan said hugging her back and kissing her forehead...
'Haan dad, we better go and sleep... Goodnight dad...' Nikki said kissing his cheek..
'Goodnight bacchi...' Karan said caring her hair...

Karan and Nikki left to their respective rooms as it was almost time for the servants also go to sleep... Karan make sure the doors and windows were closed as Riddhima left before him or Nikki... Karan knows Riddhima would have taken care of it if she wouldn't have gone to check on Armaan... So making sure every door was closed and lock, he left to his room...


ARMAAN RIDDHIMA ROOM


Riddhima enter the room slowly, looking towards the bed but seeing it empty she look around to see where Armaan was as the bed was empty... Riddhima closed the door as her eyes catch the glimpse of Armaan who was standing near the window, looking outside towards the sky...

Locking it, Riddhima move ahead but stop thinking not to disturb him... As Armaan didn't turn around looking who has come, Riddhima understood he must be lost in which didn't make him realized her present... Riddhima move towards the dressing table removing her earrings and other jewelries as her eyes were fixed on Armaan...

Armaan has change to his night cloth so Riddhima thought to change without disturbing him... So after removing all the jewelries other than mangalsutra and the anklet which Armaan had wear her in the morning, she move to the wardrobe to take her night cloth and towel...

Seeing still her moving here and there wasn't getting his attention, Riddhima move to the washroom hoping he would be out from his trace by the time she come back after taking a warm shower and change to fresh comfortable cloth...

After 20 minutes, Riddhima came out drying her hair to see Armaan still in the same position near the window... Leaving the towel, Riddhima run her fingers in her wet hair as she move close to him... Knowing Armaan was too lost to realized her present, Riddhima hugs him around his waist resting her head on his shoulder...

Armaan who was just blankly staring at the sky, got little startled feeling the sudden hug... Riddhima cold fingers gave goosebumps in his skin while a shiver run down his spine, also her hug broke his trace which he himself didn't remember what his mind was busy in all this time after he had come back to the room...

Armaan hold Riddhima hands which was around his waist, they stood like that without saying anything just feeling the closeness... Riddhima was too tired to stay on her feet so she move away making Armaan turn towards her, Riddhima took his hand and lead him to the bed...

Armaan didn't stop her but look at her to see she has change her cloth and freshen up, he didn't realized her present all this time until she hugs him... Riddhima look at Armaan who was looking at her as his eyes admire the beauty, Riddhima make him sit and got medicine for him... Without denying, Armaan took it and drank it with water...

Riddhima smile seeing this, knowing he must be too lost in her to deny the medicines which he didn't like a bit... Riddhima sit next to him but move on the middle of the bed, Armaan eyes kept following her... Riddhima laid down pulling his hand asking him to laid next to her... Armaan look at the pillow and than back at Riddhima who open her arms asking him to come close to her...

Happily, Armaan move in her arms laying as close as possible... Riddhima smile seeing how happy Armaan got, her hands went around his body while his hands were around on her waist with his head resting on her shoulder... They closed their eyes as Riddhima felt Armaan hot breath on her neckline while Armaan just inhale her heart-warming smell which make him believe she is with him...

Neither of them say a word as it wasn't necessary for the time, both were tired... Armaan mentally, Riddhima physically as she had been out whole day... Hoping to get a good night sleep, without any disturbance for the night as they soon was drown in deep slumber holding each other closed as their heart pump with excitement feeling the closeness...


FOLLOWING DAY


Riddhima sleep was disturb by the sun rays hitting her face, she turn around and laid on her stomach hidding her face in the soft mattress... Hoping to go back to sleep but next moment she hard her alarm ringing, Riddhima lazily pull out her hand to catch her mobile but couldn't reach to it... Not having another option Riddhima open her eyes to see where she has kept the mobile...

It was just on the side table which make Riddhima groan, offing the alarm she check the time and than look at her other side to see Armaan still sleeping... Riddhima was surprise that neither of them wake up at the previous night because usually Armaan would wake after the nightmare, Riddhima felt happy that he didn't get the nightmare because she don't want his mood to be off all day when they had to attend their reception today...

Riddhima look at Armaan face, which was showing calmness... She slowly care his hair, moving the hair which was falling on his board forehead... Smile form in his lips, feeling her touch which make Riddhima smile too... Riddhima bend down and kiss his forehead lingering her lips not making Armaan sleep broke as she needs to take a shower before waking him...

Letting him sleep for sometimes, Riddhima move out making sure his sleep didn't get disturb... Taking her cloths for the day, she move to the washroom hoping Armaan wouldn't wake up before she comes out... Before entering the washroom, once again Riddhima look at him to see Armaan took a turn as was hugging the pillow which she was sleeping few minutes ago as he hide his face on it, being unaware that it wasn't her...

Taking shower, Riddhima came out to see still Armaan sleeping like that... Riddhima smile and move to the dressing table to get ready before waking him... In no time, Riddhima got ready and took his cloths before waking him...

Checking the time, Riddhima move on Armaan side sitting close to him... Riddhima care Armaan hair hoping his sleep would get disturb with her touch, but when he continue sleeping Riddhima bend a little over him with her wet hair touching on his ear and neck making him ticklish...
'Armaan...' Riddhima whisper his name hoping he would wake up...
'Hmmm...' Armaan said as he continue sleeping pushing away Riddhima hair...
'Uto Armaan, subah hogayi...' Riddhima said kissing his cheek as she look at his face when he move it out from the pillow...
'Kuch der sone doh Riddhima...' Armaan said still with his eyes closed...
'Armaan, aapko breakfast karke medicines lena hai... Please uto, main breakfast bana ne jaa rahi hoon...' Riddhima said moving away nudghing him slowly...
'Hmmm..' Armaan said again as he was in deep slumber...
'Armaan, please uto na...' Riddhima said trying to turn him towards her...

Armaan did turn but next moment Riddhima was shocked seeing how Armaan move close to her hugging her around waist and hiding his face on her tummy... Feeling his breath on her bare tummy as she was wearing a saree which reveal her stomach, Riddhima close her eyes feeling havoc in her body... Riddhima knows Armaan was sleeping but the closeness was making her shiver...

Riddhima didn't realized when her breath got fast along with heartbeat, trying to control it she put her fingers in his hair caring it hoping Armaan soon would come out from his slumber... When Armaan continue sleeping, Riddhima thought to let him sleep for some more time before sending Nikki to wake him as ones she started to make breakfast she wouldn't be able to come unless she finished and it would get late him to have breakfast and take his morning dose of medicine...

So controlling herself, Riddhima try to move his head off from her lap but Armaan hands were holding her close to him as he continue sleep in the comfortable position... Riddhima open her eyes looking at his face and smile seeing how he was holding her as if she might run away which she was going to do soon...
'Armaan, aapko sona hai toh sojao... Mujhe chodo, mujhe breakfast banane jaana hai...' Riddhima said pushing him softly...
'Aise raho na Riddhima...' Armaan said...
'Nehi Armaan, aap bed par sojao...' Riddhima said trying to move away...
'Tck, kyun disturb kar rahe ho...' Armaan said getting disturb...
'Bed pe sojao, phir disturb nehi hoga...' Riddhima said finally pushing him on the bed...

Before Riddhima could move out, Riddhima felt a pull on her hand... Riddhima look at Armaan, who was looking towards her with his sleepy eyes but which was busy admiring the beauty in front of him in this beautiful morning... Feeling his gaze, Riddhima felt her cheeks color changing but didn't let him see it...
'Kiya huva...' Riddhima asked...
'Kaha jaa rahi ho...' Armaan asked...
'Abhi toh bataya, breakfast bana ne...' Riddhima said...
'Tum aise nehi jaa sakte...' Armaan said...
'Kyun, acchi nehi lag rahi kiya...' Riddhima asked looking towards her saree...
'Nehi...' Armaan said...
'Nehi..???? Kiya kharabi hai...' Riddhima asked...
'Kharabi nehi hai, bohot bohot bohot zyada...' Armaan stop as Riddhima wait for him to say how she was looking...
'Bohot zyada kiya Armaan...' Riddhima asked when he purposely stop without completing his sentence...
'Khubsurat lag rahe ho...' Armaan said with a dreamy smile...
'Aap bhi na Armaan...' Riddhima said smiling as she look away very well knowing her cheeks color change to dark shade of red...
'Oyye hoyye...' Armaan said again moving his head back on her lap...
'Armaan, kiya kar rahe ho aap... Mujhe neeche jaana hai..' Riddhima said trying to move him off from her lap...
'Haan toh jao na, lekin mujhe ek cheez dekhe...' Armaan said...
'Kiya chahiyeh aapko, aapka kapde aur towel maine already nikal diya hai...' Riddhima said looking at him...
'Woh toh tik hai wify, lekin mera morning kiss koan denge...' Armaan asked cutely...
'Haan woh main abhi...' Riddhima said as she was wondering what she had forgot didn't realized the words but stop when the meaning drown in her mind...

Riddhima who was struggling to move out Armaan head off from her lap, stop when the meaning of the words drown in her mind... She kept looking at Armaan as if he has ask her to give her virgin, Armaan just smile seeing her shocked expression...

Armaan knows she wouldn't mind him stealing one kiss, if she was shocked than it's because seeing how Armaan was shamelessly asking for it... Maybe she didn't expect to see this side of him because he was the one who had been running away from her before their confession so it came as a shocked seeing every time Armaan shows his right on her...

Armaan hold Riddhima one hand while his other hand move up to her face, caring her soft cheek with back of his hand Armaan move it to her nape holding it as he make her face bend towards his face... Riddhima who was under the shocked came back to reality when she felt Armaan hand on her nape, bending her face towards him...

Riddhima knows, Armaan wouldn't let her go without his morning kiss and the havoc in her body wasn't making her move away as she let Armaan take whatever he wants from her... Both were lost in each other eyes, as Armaan slowly bend her over him, soon their breath were mingle and lips were inch away...
*KNOCK KNOCK*

Their trace was broke hearing the loud knock which make them jerk away... Riddhima jump on her feet while Armaan just sit on the bed trying to understand what had happen... Pushing her fringe behind her hair, Riddhima move to answer the door as again the person knock for the second time...

Before opening the door, Riddhima close her eyes hoping her cheeks color was back to normal as her heartbeat started to slow down to normal beating... Armaan just kept looking at Riddhima, who stood for a second in front of the door before opening it to see a servant standing in front of the door...
'Ma'am, woh aapse puchna ta breakfast mein kiya bana na hai...' Servant asked...
'Haan woh, main aa rahi hoon... Dad ut gaya...' Riddhima asked relief seeing it was just a servant...
'Nehi, saahab abhi nehi uta but saahab koh utne ka waqt ho raha hai...' Servant said...
'Tum jao, main aati hoon...' Riddhima said putting her hair in to a messy bun...

When the servant left, Riddhima look towards Armaan who was frowning seeing it was just a servant who disturb their morning romance... Armaan was cursing the servant for coming two three minutes before, if she had come five minutes later than he would have got what he was asking from Riddhima...

Riddhima who very well understood Armaan expression smile seeing how childish he could be, Riddhima move to the dressing table to take the clip to hold her hair together and look at Armaan who was looking towards her... When Riddhima look at him, he gave a sad expression, Riddhima very well knew why he was showing that expression...
'Aap tayyar hojao, tab tak main breakfast bana leti hoon...' Riddhima said...
'Haan woh toh tik hai lekin mera kiss...' Armaan ask moving out from the bed...
'Not now Armaan, Dad ke utne se pehle mujhe breakfast bana na hai...' Riddhima said quickly moving towards the door...

Before Riddhima could move out, Armaan move towards her catching her and pinning her to the wall behind the open door... Riddhima gap feeling Armaan body touching her, she closed her eyes feeling Armaan breath on her face which make her heart miss a beat with her breath stuck in her throat...

Knowing she needs to go, Armaan just move his face closed to her but seeing her eyes closed Armaan smile seeing how she gets nervous when he get too closed to her... Without sealing her lips, Armaan move his lips towards her forehead, kissing near the sindoor which she has apply on her forehead...

Smile form on Riddhima lips as she felt his lips on her forehead, the breath she was holding she let it out while her heartbeat started to get normal... Armaan also smile seeing that beautiful smile on her face, he just don't want her to think that he was getting impatient to make her his...

Armaan cupped her face making Riddhima open her eyes, he rest his forehead against her as she hold his hand which was on her face... Beautiful smiles were on their face, Riddhima got relax in his hold as she realized her Armaan wasn't forcing on her too much thinking about her feelings and emotions...
'I wouldn't do anything u aren't ready to do Riddhima...' Armaan whisper...
'Armaan, woh main...' Riddhima was cut by Armaan who kept his finger on her lips...
'Shhh, mujhe koi explanation nehi chahiyeh Riddhima... Main jaanta hoon jitna mere liye yeh sab naya hai utna tumhare liye bhi yeh naya hai... We wouldn't hurry up on anything, we will take easily step by step when we both are ready...' Armaan said looking in her eyes...
'I trust you Armaan, I know u will never force me on anything...' Riddhima said looking back in his eyes which shows pool of love...
'I love you...' Armaan said...
'I love you too...' Riddhima said...

Armaan smile and kiss her cheek before stepping back giving her space to move... Riddhima smile feeling his kiss on her cheek, she move to go but came back and kiss his cheek making Armaan smile with her action... Before Armaan hold her back, Riddhima rush out trying to hide her flush face which was already seen by Armaan before she move out away from his sight...

Armaan ruffle his hair as he look at Riddhima who move out letting him fresh up and get ready for the day as she left to make breakfast for everyone else... Smiling to her flush face which was capture in his heart and mind, Armaan move to the bed taking the towel and left to relax himself as the demon was waken in him seeing his fresh and beautiful wife the moment his eyes open taking away his sleep...


AFTER BREAKFAST


Karan left to check the arrangement with Shashank, who would be meeting him in the venue... Nikki took Riddhima with her as she wanted to give the dress of their reception to her, also to give the details of the day as she has already make appointment for them in saloon... Armaan was left alone in the hall as he has no work for the day, he had been strictly ask not to leave the house and go office...

Seeing others were busy in their respective works, Armaan sit in the hall watching television but his eyes were on his mobile as he kept checking some mails as it was his chance to do some work being in home and getting bored...

While in Nikki's room, she was showing Riddhima her dress and also took out the suit for Armaan which was matching to her dress... Riddhima like it a lot as it was finalized by Armaan, she didn't see it before but Nikki had taken her to take the measurement so they knew it would be perfect for her...

Still to make sure nothing goes wrong in the last minute, Nikki ask Riddhima to try it ones and show her wearing it... First Riddhima deny but when Nikki said she wants to make sure the measurement is correct or if they need to do any changes, they can do it before evening if she checks now, Riddhima finally left to change...

Nikki was busy in her mobile to kill the time while Riddhima took her time in changing, when she heard the washroom door knob unlock and open Nikki look towards Riddhima who came outside wearing the red gown which end up on her feet...

Nikki just couldn't speak a word as she look at Riddhima from head to toe with her mouth slightly open, Riddhima was looking like a true princess in that strapless gown as it left her milky arms and upper chest visible... It has design done upper part of the body while silky cloths under the lace one above with design on it...

Riddhima who was nervous as it was reveal from her upper chest and arms, stood waiting for Nikki to speak but seeing her just staring at her, Riddhima felt uneasy thinking it wasn't looking good on her... As she was getting nervous, Riddhima put a fringe behind her ear clearing her throat to break Nikki trace...
'OMG Bhabs...' Nikki said putting her hand on mouth...
'Kiya huva Kido, not looking nice na...' Riddhima said...
'Nice...??? U must be kidding Bhabs...' Nikki said moving close to her as she circle around Riddhima having a good look at her...
'Kido, bolo na sach mein acchi nehi lag rahi na...' Riddhima said...
'Ek advice deti hoon abhi Bhabs...' Nikki said...
'Kiya...' Riddhima asked not understanding what has gotten on Nikki...
'Never... I mean it never, ever wear such things after this in your life...' Nikki said...

Riddhima was confused hearing this, she look at herself thinking if she really was looking not good at all on that dress... It's not the first time she has wore a gown but yes, something like a gown which look like a wedding gown it was her first and surely will be the last time... Seeing Riddhima just stood looking at herself, trying to understand if she was looking horrible Nikki smile seeing how innocent her bhabs could be...

Nikki stood in front of Riddhima, making her look towards Nikki as questions were in her expressive eyes... Nikki try to press her smile seeing that innocent expression of her bhabs, she has the eager to pull her cheeks at the moment but control herself...
'Bhabs, you are looking... Smoking hot...' Nikki said stopping for a second and than complimenting her...
'Really...' Riddhima asked not believing her ears...
'Yes Bhabs, aapko dekh ke mujhe itna shock laga toh imagine bhai ka kiya reaction hoga...' Nikki said standing close to her and holding Riddhima arms...

Without having any control on herself, Riddhima started to imagine Armaan whose expression would be worth to see... Riddhima knows, every moment his eyes laid on her Armaan would get lost in her without caring about the world... His eyes, which shows unconditional love for her and his dreamy smile which make every person understand how deeply he has fall for her...

When Riddhima didn't say anything, Nikki look towards her to see Riddhima's cheeks color changing to a dark shade of red while smile adoring on her lips... Seeing Riddhima lost expression, Nikki understood Riddhima must be thinking about none other than her beloved brother and husband of Riddhima...

Nikki smile seeing how much love Riddhima has for Armaan, she was really bless to have Riddhima as her family member knowing she would stay with them in their worst and hard time... Also with her present, things has already started to change and it was for a better future...
'Bhabs...' Nikki nudge Riddhima breaking her trace...
'Huh...' Riddhima asked looking towards her...
'Bhai ke baare mein baad mein yaad karlena, should we do any changes in the dress...' Nikki asked...
'Nehi, its perfectly fit Kido.. I don't think any  changes are required...' Riddhima said looking at the dress...
'Did u like it...???' Nikki asked...
'Of course I love it Kido...' Riddhima said...
'Kyun nehi, after all aapki husband ka choice hai...' Nikki said teasing...

Riddhima just smile hearing Nikki words, she hit softly on Nikki cheeks making her give the best smile of hers... Before either of them could say anything, they heard Armaan calling them... Both look at each other while Riddhima rushed back to the washroom to change and Nikki open the door to see why her darling brother was screaming for them...

Nikki saw Armaan in the hall frowning for being left all this time alone when they were present in the same house but it feels like he is the only living person in the house at the moment... Nikki check the time as she needs to show Riddhima her jewelry too but thought to show her later when they go saloon to get ready for the evening...

Seeing Nikki coming alone, Armaan look at her back hoping to see his lady love... Nikki very well understood for whom Armaan was looking for, she smile seeing how her brother can't leave them alone for a second... Specially her bhabs who is most important person in their life after their parents...
'Bhabs aa rahi hai, kyun chilla rahe ho aap...' Nikki asked...
'Are you seriously asking me this...' Armaan said raising his one eyebrow...
'Of course I m asking you bhai, kiya chahiyeh...' Nikki asked...
'Ab main bolunga toh bolenge mujhe sharam aata nehi... Tum dono pata nehi ek hour se kamre mein kiya kar rahe ho, tumhari jhaga mujhe hona chahiyeh ta lekin nehi, dono beit gaye saath meain mujhe yaha akele chodke...' Armaan said...
'Oh toh aapko bhabs ke saath time spend karna ta...' Nikki ask in a teasing tone...
'Of course karna hai, yeh koi sawal huva...' Armaan said...
'Sawal hi toh hai, lekin jawab mujhe pehle se hi pata hai... Chalo aap ek kaam karo, bhabs koh lekar lunch date pe jao lekin by 4 pm mujhe bhabs ghar pe chahiyeh...' Nikki said...
'Kyun...???' Armaan asked...
'Mere bhulakkad bhai, parso toh aapka shaadi huva toh reception toh banta haina... Aap bhul gaye toh main hoon na yaad dilane, raat koh reception hai jiski tayyar karne Dad aur uncle gaye hai... Aur main bhabs koh uski dress dikha rahi ti aur jewelry which she would be wearing tonight for reception...' Nikki said...
'Oh haan, so hows she look in the dress...' Armaan asked...
'Hamesha ke tarah tik hi hai...' Nikki said...
'Bas tik...???' Armaan said...
'Aapko dekhna hai...???' Nikki asked...
'Of course dekhna hai, lekin I know she would be looking smoking hot in that dress...' Armaan said imagine Riddhima in the gown as it was he who choose it for her...
'Back to earth bhai, imagine baad mein karna... Imagine kyun karna jab aapko shaam mein bhabs koh live dekhne koh milenge...' Nikki said...
'Yeah right, waise 4 bhaje kyun chahiyeh tujhe tumhari bhabs ghar pe...???' Armaan asked...
'Ghar pe nehi toh aap khud bhabs koh saloon mein chod dena, I will meet her there... Phir wahi se seedhe main aur bhabs venue pe milungi..' Nikki said...

'Jo bhi karunga, tumhari bhabs koh pasand aayenge...' Armaan said pinching Nikki's cheek...
'Don't do that bhai...' Nikki said pushing his hand away...
'For now, sure but I wouldn't ever stop doing that...' Armaan said...
'Jao jao, all the best...' Nikki said...
'Thank you behena...' Armaan said making his way out from house...
'Most welcome bhai...' Nikki said smiling seeing how Armaan mood got better knowing he could spend lunch time with his wife...

After sometimes, Riddhima came out correcting her saree... Riddhima look around not seeing Armaan, Nikki look towards her hearing her footsteps and smile at her... As Riddhima kept looking here and there to find Armaan, Nikki understood she must be searching for Armaan...
'Bhabs, aap tayyar hojana ek hour mein...' Nikki said...

'Aap kyun itna fikar kar rahe ho, khalungi na bhabs...' Nikki said hugging her for taking care of them so much from the moment she step in their life...

Riddhima also hugs her and left to make lunch while Nikki got back to her room to pack everything that they would need to take to the saloon with them... Also she left Armaan suit in his room on the bed neatly as she look around to see how everything were on their right places which usually wouldn't be if Riddhima wasn't staying in the same room with her brother...

As everyone else were busy in their respective works, Nikki thought to do something for past time as she had three four hours before going saloon with Riddhima... So soon she was in her room and got busy watching a movie to kill the time...


LUNCH DATE


Riddhima look around her surrounding as a smile adore on her lips, Armaan was busy admiring her as he read her expression knowing very well that she like the simple yet beautiful arrangement done by him... Their trace was broke when the waiter came to take their order, knowing Riddhima choice Armaan gave the order as Riddhima was too busy admiring the place...

When the waiter left, Armaan look at Riddhima who was just enjoying the view in front of them as it shows the beach side... It was feeling really nice as they could see the ocean from the top roof of the tower where Armaan had make the arrangement...

As it would be hot in this hour of the time, Armaan manage to put a open tent with a table for two... Curtains of the tent were flying around as the wind was blowing slowly... Place were decorated with balloons all over the floor with flower petals, Riddhima was welcome by a bouquet which was given by the waiter the moment they step in the separate area of the open restaurant...

To get Riddhima attention, Armaan hold her hand which was resting on the table making Riddhima look towards him... Riddhima gave her best smile as happiness sparkle in her eyes as it remind her of their first date after their confession...
'Accha laga...???' Armaan asked..
'Aapko kiya lagta hai...???' Riddhima asked...
'Bohot zyada...' Armaan said...
'Haan, bohot zyada...' Riddhima said...
'Lekin tumse zyada kuch bhi accha nehi hai...' Armaan said getting lost in her again...

Riddhima smile hearing this and she look at their hands as her cheeks color turn to crimson, Armaan intertwined their fingers seeing how Riddhima always blush whenever he compliment her beauty which he didn't get enough of staring whole day and night...

Not taking her hand out from his grip, Riddhima look away at the view that shows the clear sky and dark blue ocean which was calm... Armaan eyes were still on her face and seeing her smiling forgetting his gaze, he wonder what she must be thinking...

Next second Riddhima look towards him as she kept her other hand over their intertwined hands, Armaan waited to know what she was thinking as he could see in her eyes it was related to their happy moment which they spend before the marriage...
'Aapko yaad hai, jab aapne mujhe pehli baar date pe legaye...' Riddhima asked very well reading the unspoken question in Armaan eyes...
'One of the best moment of our life, how can I ever forget that...' Armaan said...
'I never thought you would take me there, where we confess our feelings for each other...' Riddhima said...
'That place has so much memories attach in our life... It used to be my secret place but it become our secret place after you enter my life...' Armaan said holding their hands with his free hand...
'I still can't get over the fact that we actually go there for our first date... Everything was so nice and beautiful that night, simple yet full of so much love...' Riddhima said looking at deep in Armaan eyes...
'It was my pleasure, to make our first date special to u and for us...' Armaan said as he got lost in her eyes too...


FLASH BACK START


It had been two weeks after Armaan and Riddhima confession, every single person were happy to get them back normal which bring the lost happiness back in their life... Seeing the two smiling and living their moment with each other making new memories, both parents thought to knot their relation in marriage soon without letting them stay away from each other...

As the elders final a date for their engagement and wedding, Armaan was making arrangment for their very first official date after their confession... Riddhima had been complaining that he didn't take her out, to spend some alone time with each other...

Either it always could be Karan and Nikki or Nikki with them whenever they go out so they don't get enough time to spend with each other after their busy schedule... In weekend, when Riddhima goes to Mallilk Mansion Karan and Nikki always would keep her busy so Armaan thought it would be best to steal some alone moment with his to be wife...

So finally, today Armaan was taking her out and he had send a dress for her in Nikki's hand as he had been too busy with the preparation of their first date... Armaan already had taken permission from Padma knowing Shashank wouldn't deny but it was nice to ask ones before taking the daughter of Gupta's out when they aren't engage yet...

So by 7 15 pm, Armaan was waiting outside the Gupta Mansion for Riddhima... As it would take 45 minutes to reach their destination, Armaan came little earlier... It didn't take much time Riddhima to come out, Armaan who was busy in his mobile as he stood resting his back on the car look towards the entrance feeling sudden breeze which give him the feeling that she was closed to him...

Armaan was dumbstruck to see Riddhima in that pinkish orange one shoulder off dress which was neatly hugging her curves from upper body, silver design done on left shoulder part and right part on waist... Riddhima wasn't wearing jewelry other than the simple earrings matching to her dress, with a light pink gloss adoring on her lips as she has put only eyeliner around her big gorgeous orbs...

Armaan didn't realized how long he kept looking at her, Riddhima came close to him very well knowing his gaze was not leaving her for a second... Riddhima look at Armaan to see him staring without blinking his eyes for a second, she smile and put her palm on his eyes making him close his eyelash as smile got wide showing his dimples on his both cheeks...

Armaan move her hand and kept it close to his heart which was beating fasting, which for some reason was very excited to think that this beautiful Angel in front of his eyes will be spending few hours with him without anyone else to disturb them... Armaan left a deep breath as he didn't realized when he forgot to let it out the moment Riddhima came in to his view...

Riddhima also look at Armaan who was wearing a matching shirt to her dress along with a grey color trousers... He was looking more handsome with clean shave and his eyes were sparkling with happiness as it has come after months of suffering being away from love of his life...
'Chale...' Riddhima said breaking the silent knowing they can't stop staring each other whole night...

Armaan smile hearing her sweet voice, he took her to the front passenger seat and open the door like gentleman letting Riddhima sit comfortably and closed it for her... Than taking behind the wheel, they started their journey to the destination for the night...

It was a silent journey as neither of them speak a word, both just enjoying being together as they hold their hands all the way to their destination... Finally, when Armaan slow down Riddhima look at him as she has recognized the place... Riddhima really wasn't expecting him to take her there, which of course have so many memory attach to this place...

Armaan gave her a smile and move out, soon he let her out and hold her closed to him as he took her all the way up to the cliff... Yes, they were soon at the top of the cliff where they could see almost whole country... Where they had confess their love and before that spend sometimes when Armaan felt sad or miss his mother...

When they were up at the top, Riddhima was surprise to see the arrangement... She never thought this place could look so beautiful with the lantern lights with heart shape balloons tight in to small rocks so it wouldn't fly away with the wind... Also flower petals were around the table which was kept in the middle with a baby pink color cloth on it with a lantern on the table as the dinner were already place on it...

Leaving Armaan hand, Riddhima move ahead as she turn around looking every corner of the cliff... The empty place look so full of life all of sudden and Riddhima has no words to describe how beautiful it was looking at this time of the night...

When finally she was able to believe this wasn't a dream but reality, she look around to get another shocked... Automatically her hands cover her mouth as she saw Armaan sitting on his knee, with a ring box in his hand as it was forwards to her...
'Log kehte hai main paagal hoon, lekin sirf tum jaante ho main tumhari deewana hoon... Log koh lagta hai main tumhara layak nehi hoon, lekin tum jaante ho mujhse zyada tumse pyar karne wala koi nehi milega... Log kehte hai koi aisa nehi hogi is dhuniya mein jo mujhse pyar karenge, lekin tumne mujhe pyar karke un sabke baat koh galat saabit kiya...
Riddhima, I know this is really sounding stupid but I want to tell you how much I love you... I know I had already and also our engagement and marriage date is already fixed but I had never ask if you want to accept me as your life partner or husband...
Will you...??? Will you accept this crazy person who is crazy for your love as your life partner...??? Will you give me the pleasure to be your husband...???
I may not be the best for any girl or you, but I promise I will and I always would love you with all my heart... So Ms. Riddhima Gupta, will you let me be a part of your life like you gave me a place in your heart for rest of your life, our life...???' Armaan said proposing her very well knowing her answer wouldn't be different from a yes...

Riddhima was having tears in her eyes hearing those heart touching words from Armaan, true he was never comfortable to expressing his feelings or emotions to anyone... Riddhima is one of the person in his life, after his mother than he could tell anything in his heart and mind... Riddhima was very happy that, he wants to be a part of her life just like she wants to be a part of his...

Both kept looking at each other as Armaan wait for Riddhima reply, as soon as the words hit Riddhima mind and heart she throw her arms around his neck hugging him tight... Armaan also hugs her still holding the ring, he knows it was her way of telling him how much happy she was tonight...

Letting her be in his arms like that, Armaan finally pull away taking the ring out from the box and putting it in her ring finger... Armaan kiss on the ring making Riddhima smile through the tears which was still in her eyes as she hold it without letting it fall... Armaan stood up and cupped her face, caring her cheeks with his thumbs...
'I love you...' Armaan whisper making Riddhima smile wide...
'I love you too...' Riddhima reply back, holding his hands which was cupping her cheeks...

Riddhima kiss his both palm one by one making Armaan smile with her action as he felt the love she shower through those kisses... Armaan took out his hand out from her grip making her surprise, he move few steps behind as he took a sky lantern making Riddhima confused...
'I want to let it fly as a symbol of our love...' Armaan told as he light it up and holding it waiting for Riddhima to hold it...

Riddhima smile hearing him, she knows Armaan was waiting for her to do it along with him so she move close to him touching it before they let it fly in to the dark night up at high sky as they watch it fly away... Armaan put his arms around Riddhima waist, holding her close to him while Riddhima one hand rest on his chest as they watch the symbol of their love which wasn't hidden from the world take a tour at the sky...

Both stood like that till it vanished from their view, Armaan kiss Riddhima temple making her close her eyes feeling his love... Armaan check the time and it has already past 8 30 pm, he thought to lead her to have dinner... So without saying anything, he took her to the table pulling out the chair for her...

Soon they were enjoying the delicious food which Riddhima get to know was cook by her very own chef Mr. Armaan Mallik for his lady love... It was one of the best day of Riddhima life, which she would never forget and same goes with Armaan after the hard time he face in his life after the lost of his mother...


FLASH BACK END


Armaan and Riddhima trace was broke with the waiter who came with their order... After placing it, he left giving privacy to the newly wedded couple... Both started to eat as they talk about their first official and memorable date along with how their life has change till they got married a day before...

They enjoy their lunch and let the memory be fresh in their heart and mind... After lunch, Armaan took Riddhima to have ice cream on her request as he can never deny... It was by 3 pm when they finished their ice creams and Riddhima ask him to take her home as she needs to take a shower before leaving to the saloon with Nikki...

Armaan didn't deny knowing she would be getting ready for him and he still wonder, how she manage to make him dumbstruck with her eternity beauty as every time he felt she is more beautiful... Knowing she would need at least 20 minutes to take shower, they soon return back to home as they started to get ready for their reception...


AFTER RIDDHIMA AND NIKKI LEFT TO SALOON


Karan and Armaan were sitting in the hall after the girls left to get ready for the evening... Karan was busy making some calls while Armaan just sit with him playing with his mobile... When finally Karan was done with his calls, he look at Armaan who was smiling for some unknown reason...

Karan knows Armaan was very much happy with the turn took in his life, the day he realized his love for Riddhima, Karan had seen how he was struggling with his feelings as he wasn't sure if he has any right to make any girl as his life partner due to his health which wasn't in his control...

Karan was glad that, Riddhima was determined to make Armaan as her life partner and if it wasn't for her strong love for Armaan, he wouldn't have get his true love in his life... Karan wish that day, how it would be if Nandini was with them... Armaan was never comfortable sharing his emotions or feelings with him but with Nandini, it seems like they are friends more than being mother son...

Karan knows Armaan wouldn't tell anything in his heart without him or anyone forcing him, he was really glad that after Nandini he got someone that he could share everything in his heart... Karan knows, Riddhima was the girl who god has send for his son and them after Nandini...
'So...' Karan asked breaking the silent...

Armaan look at Karan when he heard him speaking, Armaan thought he was still in call but seeing Karan looking towards him Armaan raise his eyes brow as if asking he was talking to him... Karan smile seeing Armaan was surprise to hear him speaking to Armaan...
'Buddy, you are married now... Aur aaj reception hai toh what's next...???' Karan asked...
'Matlab dad, main samjha nehi...' Armaan said...
'Samajh toh aagaya hoga main tumhare honeymoon ke baare mein puch raha hoon... Toh kaha lejaa rahe ho mere bahu koh honeymoon pe...' Karan asked...
'Woh dad, maine kuch socha nehi is baare mein...' Armaan said...
'Common Armaan, you should know where Riddhima beti wants to go with you... Ab tak toh saare arrangement hojana chahiyeh ta beta...' Karan said...

Armaan kept quiet as he has really done nothing for their honeymoon thinking he will let Riddhima finalized the place as it doesn't matter for him until Riddhima is with him... Seeing Armaan getting quiet, Karan understood he must have truly not think of it...
'Koi baat nehi buddy, is baar maine aur Nikki ne final kardiya... Lekin promise me buddy, u will take Riddhima to where ever she wants to go with you...' Karan said...
'I will dad, issiliyeh maine abhi kuch decide bhi nehi kar payi...' Armaan said...
'It's ok, I have kept an envolop in your room on the side table near your bed... Dekh lena, abhi main tohda rest karne jaa raha hoon... I will see you at 7 30 pm, we will leave together...' Karan said...
'Ok dad...' Armaan said...

Karan care Armaan head and left to get some rest, Armaan sit there for sometimes and than went to his room to check the envolop Karan just tell him about... As Karan mention where he had kept it, it wasn't difficult for him to find it... Armaan open the envelop and was surprise to see where the ticket belongs to...

Armaan found a letter with those tickets, seeing Nikki handwriting Armaan got curious to know why she has left it with the tickets... After reading it, Armaan eyes got wide as he couldn't believe what Nikki has written on it... Still holding the letter and ticket's, Armaan move to the wardrobe as he quickly move his eyes searching for something...

When Armaan eyes laid on it, a smile form in his lips... Armaan ruffle his hair as he look at the letter and ticket's ones again, he wasn't able to believe it if really his father and sister has done this for him and Riddhima... Armaan knows how much they loves him but never thought they would accept Riddhima so quickly as a part of their family...
