Part 6 : Shikayat 2 - An AR SS -

Armaan was waiting for Riddhima to come with Nikki as the guest has started to pour in the hall making it crowded... Gupta's and Karan were in the entrance to welcome the guests who has come for Armaan and Riddhima marriage... Every single person was impress by the decoration and as they expected, everything was looking perfect for the groom and bride...

The hall was decorated with royal blue and red color curtains, flowers and light's as the color code was those colors so everything would look perfect as they capture it from the beginning of the function till end... Armaan was talking to some of his clients but his eyes kept moving to the entrance as it was taking time for Riddhima to come...

Finally, his wait came to an end when suddenly the place got silent as if they had seen the 8th wonder in the world... Armaan move his gaze to the door to see Riddhima entering with Nikki who was helping her with her dress... Armaan knows, it must be little heavy for her so he move towards them without any control as he was under Riddhima's charm...

Riddhima was welcome by her parents who hugs her followed by Karan who hugs her, kissing her temple... Riddhima gave her best smile to them as her eyes also move around the hall to get a glimpse of her husband who she knows wouldn't be looking less than a Greek god...


It was the moment when her eyes laid on Armaan, who was moving towards them... Nikki move to Karan side as Riddhima parent's and Karan praise her beauty as she was looking not less than a princess tonight... After all she is princess of her father, Angel of Karan and Armaan...

While they were complimenting the dress and her look, Riddhima eyes was busy checking her husband who was wearing a royal three piece with a red shirt matching to her gown... As Riddhima move her eyes up to his face, their eyes met with smile on their face feeling bless to have such wonderful partner in their life...
'Bhai... You are looking awesome...' Nikki said when finally Armaan reached them...
'You aren't looking bad either...' Armaan said just to tease Nikki who was wearing a royal blue evening gown which end up to her knee...

Karan also was wearing a royal blue suit with matching shirt while Padma was wearing a red saree with royal blue blouse and Shashank was wearing three royal blue piece with dark red shirt... Nikki playfully hit Armaan arms as he move to Riddhima side when Karan ask Armaan to take Riddhima inside to introduce to the people who has already arrived...

Armaan nodded his head like a good child and forward his arms like a gentleman for Riddhima to accept his offer of holding him close... Riddhima smile and slip her hand in his arm as she carefully hold her big skirt so she wouldn't trap on it with her high heels...
'Someone is looking gorgeous...' Armaan whispers as they move further inside the hall...
'You aren't looking bad either Mr. Mallik...' Riddhima said as she smile to the guests who was looking towards them...
'Ahaan, so you wouldn't compliment in clear words haan...' Armaan asked as he took Riddhima to the stage which was kept on side of the hall as middle of it was empty for the dance floor...
'So you want to hear clear words as compliment Mr. Mallik...' Riddhima ask looking at him for a second before again moving her gaze around...
'I don't really needed your words to know how handsome and dashing I m looking Mrs. Mallik...'Armaan said playing along with her...
'And why is that Mr. Mallik...' Riddhima asked...
'Because I have witness a while ago, how a gorgeous girl had been checking me out the moment her eyes laid on me which shows of course no one can resist my armaani charm...' Armaan said looking at Riddhima...

Hearing Armaan words, Riddhima look at him to see Armaan already looking towards her... The moment she look at him, Armaan wink at her as a naughty smile play on his manly lips... Riddhima felt her cheeks heat up very well understanding, Armaan has caught her checking the moment her eyes laid on him...

As from evening she hasn't seen him, her eyes were desperate to have one glimpse of him... That was the reason, her eyes were trying to catch him and it couldn't help capturing him safely deep down where no one can erase it from her mind and heart... Riddhima knows, he belongs to him only so no girl would dare to get near him or he wouldn't let any girl get near him because he was helplessly and crazily in love with her...

Armaan smile got wide seeing Riddhima cheeks color change as she look away from him, Armaan felt his heart jumping with happiness as he felt how lucky he was today to have his love as his wife who equally loves him back without any condition...

Armaan help Riddhima to climb to the stage and they stood close as guests started to meet them once again congratulating them for their marriage... Both meet them with smile on their face while Armaan was waiting for a moment to tell Riddhima about their honeymoon destination but to his bad luck, he didn't get time as the party started with guests keep coming to meet them...

When all the guest reached, Karan thank them before asking Armaan and Riddhima to start the function with their dance... Armaan and Riddhima dance to a slow romantic number, being lost in each other while people admire how perfect they were looking together...

Riddhima's parent and Karan was very proud and happy that finally both had tied knot of their relation so no one can point their love... Everyone was enjoying the party as Armaan and Riddhima's friends also join them along with some friends of Nikki...

After two three dance, Karan took Riddhima with him as he wanted to introduce her to some relatives while Armaan got occupied with his friends... All got busy when suddenly Nikki came searching for Riddhima, who was with her friends...
'Sorry Bhabs, Can you come with me for a second...' Nikki asked interfering their conversation...
'Excuse me girls,... Kiya huva Kido...' Riddhima excuse and move with Nikki who let her away from the crowd...

Without saying anything, Nikki took Riddhima away from the crowd where there wasn't much noise... Nikki kept looking around as she was searching for someone... Riddhima also look around seeing what or whom Nikki was searching, as everything seems calm Riddhima look back to Nikki as she waited for her to speak...
'Kiya huva Kido...' Riddhima again asked...
'Bhai koh dekha aapne...' Nikki asked still looking at the crowd...
'Yaha kaise dikhe ga bacche, huva kiya hai...' Riddhima asked making Nikki look at Riddhima...
'Bhabs, woh...' Nikki was getting sweated as tears form in her eyes...
'Niks, batao kiya huva... Kyun Armaan koh dhund rahe ho... Woh toh abhi kuch der pehle apne doston ke saath ta...' Riddhima said...
'Haan Bhabs, phir meri ek friend ne kaha bhai aunty ke aas paas ti jaha aunty ke doston ne bhai ke paagalpan ke baare mein baat kar raha ta...' Nikki said...
'What..??? Ma ke dost...???' Riddhima asked not believing her ears...
'Haan Bhabs, please bhai koh dhundo... Aapko pata haina bhai koh kitna dukh hota hai aise baatein sunke...' Nikki said...
'Dekho Niks tum... Tum yaha hall mein dekho, main baahar dekhti hoon... Kuch nehi hoga tumhari bhai, hmm...' Riddhima said making herself strong and ready what she has to face when she find Armaan...
'Bhai ke tabiyyat kharab huva toh...???' Nikki again asked...
'Main sambhalungi, tum fikar mat karo... Dad koh kuch mat batana abhi...' Riddhima said...
'Pakka na bhabs...' Nikki asked holding her hands...
'Haan Niks...' Riddhima said squeezing Nikki hands before leaving in search of Armaan...

Riddhima felt angry to know how her mother's friends were talking about Armaan health when they don't have any right to talk anything regarding to Armaan when neither she or her parents has any problem with his condition which isn't dangerous for anyone... Armaan was never harm to anyone and he wasn't even mental, just the incident make him loose his memories for sometimes making him turn to a boy who spend his life being pampered by his mother who he lost her...

Without caring anyone who was present in the function, Riddhima quickly move out from the hall as she look in the corridor... She didn't understand where to look for Armaan as by now her heart was beating faster... Closing her eyes for a second and calming her heart, Riddhima open her eyes with determine to find Armaan and make sure he was fine...

While Nikki was looking inside the hall with help of her friend who has seen Armaan near Padma's friends, Riddhima was moving in the empty corridors of the hotel... When Riddhima couldn't find him for past ten minutes, tears started to fall from her eyes...

Riddhima move out from the hotel, hoping to check outside and met a guard who tell her someone has gone towards the garden area which was in front of the hotel where it has a pool... Light's were inside the pool as it give little light to the dark night, Riddhima run as fast as she could carrying the heavy gown and stop seeing a figure sitting near the pool...

Riddhima can clearly see it was Armaan, she took her mobile and send a msg to Nikki informing her that she has found Armaan and she will be back with him in few minutes... Riddhima felt her heart calming down when she finally found Armaan safely, she move forward to see him sitting with his legs inside the pool as his shoes and socks were left on the grass with his coat carelessly...

Riddhima was surprise with his action as he never likes to be in water at night, either it be in beach or pool... Armaan would never agree to be in water after sunset as it make him get cold easily... Riddhima remember the time when first Armaan took her to the beach and how she make him go in to the water when he was continuously denying saying he would get sick easily...

FLASHBACK START

It was just a few days after Armaan and Riddhima confess their love to each other... Both were spending as much time as they could while Riddhima make sure that Armaan health in good conditional... They hardly get time to spend as they were in different professions but they always make sure, at least to spend weekend with each other...

After a busy week, it was a weekend as they plan to go for dinner and a walk in the beach... Riddhima who loves to walk near the water on bare feet on the sand was happily enjoying the calm night with her lover as he hold her close to him by her waist as they tell each other about their schedule and works...

As they had been walking like from ten minutes, Riddhima thought to move more closer to the water so her feet would get wet but every time she try to move, Armaan kept pulling her away... First Riddhima thought Armaan wasn't aware of what he was doing as they kept talking but when Armaan did that for the fifth time, Riddhima got pissed not knowing what's his problem...

Riddhima stop making Armaan pull back with her sudden stop, Armaan raise his eyebrow as if asking what happen... Riddhima did the same as she also raise her eyebrow as if asking does he really didn't realized what he had been doing for the fifth time...
'Aise kyun dekh rahe ho...' Armaan asked when Riddhima kept just staring at him with a stern look...
'Woh main puchna chahti hoon Armaan, what's your problem...' Riddhima said...
'What was I doing, walking with you na Riddhima...' Armaan said trying to understand what really happened that Riddhima look mad...
'Really now, why u keep moving away whenever I try to move close to the water...' Riddhima asked...
'You was going inside the water Riddhima...' Armaan said...
'So, what's the big deal...' Riddhima asked...
'Riddhima, it's getting late... We should leave now...' Armaan said looking away from her...

Riddhima felt something was bothering him or he was hiding something, but what... Riddhima knows how much he likes to be in the beach, even he do than what's the matter now... Riddhima move closed to him, cupping his face in her palm making Armaan look towards her...

Armaan who was trying not to look at Riddhima, very well knowing she must have understand by his behavior that he was trying to hide something from her... When he felt Riddhima soft palms on his cheek, he closed his eyes not daring to look at her eyes very well knowing Riddhima would read the unspoken words in his eyes...

Seeing Armaan close his eyes not letting her see through it what was bothering him or hiding, Riddhima got sure that it must be something related to his health or weakness... Armaan try to be very strong but somewhere, he always get weak when it remind him about such incident which leads him to remember about his mother...

So to make him feel better, Riddhima move close pressing her lips on his making Armaan breath stop with the sudden kiss... Armaan hands automatically move around Riddhima's waist pulling her closer as he let his lips parted, welcoming Riddhima to claim it...

Riddhima smile to the kiss as she softly suck on his lower lips with her one hand goes around his neck pulling him closer to her... Armaan also kiss her back as it was just a slow and promising one to love each other, no matter what they had to face in present and future...

It was Riddhima, who broke the kiss as they open their eyes letting it lock and drown in each other orbs to see the conditional love sparkling for the other... Riddhima whose one palm was still resting on Armaan cheek, she softly care his jawline with her thumb making Armaan grip get tight on her waist...

Their breaths were mingle with each other breath, hearts were banging to such intention that they could clearly hear how it wasn't in their control after the kiss they just shared which was necessary for the moment to let the other know that they belong to each other without any doubt...

Seeing Armaan lost in her touch, Riddhima smile got wide because it not only happen to him but to her too... They had share several kisses still date and it always give a new emotions to them as they discover how deeply they are in love with the other...
'Armaan...' Riddhima call his name hoping Armaan would understand her questions...
'Hmmm...' Armaan just whisper being lost in her touch...
'Kiya huva...' Riddhima asked...
'Kuch nehi..' Armaan said as he came back to reality realizing what Riddhima was doing...
'Armaan, main jaanti hoon koi baat aapko pareshan kar raha hai... Mujhe batao, please...' Riddhima said...
'It's nothing Riddhima. just I don't like to go in the water at this time of the night...' Armaan said...
'Kyun...' Riddhima asked...
'Har kyun ka jawab nehi hota hai, bas abhi mera mann nehi...' Armaan said...
'I just wanted to feel  the water under my feet Armaan, main tohdina khud koh pura gheela karne wali hoon...' Riddhima said...
'Ok, tum jao... I will wait here...' Armaan said loosing him hold...
'Aap kyun nehi aayenge...' Riddhima asked...
'Bas abhi mera mann nehi...' Armaan said...
'Pakka yehi baat hai...???' Riddhima asked feeling something fishy...
'Aur kiya baat ho sakte hai...' Armaan said...
'Mujhe kiya pata, shayad darta hoga...' Riddhima said struggling her shoulder...
'Darenge or woh bhi main... Plz haan, main kyun darne laga...' Armaan said...
'Toh phir chalo meri saath, dono chalte hai...' Riddhima said holding his hand and pulling him towards the water...
'Yaar Riddhima, main nehi jaa sakta...' Armaan said pulling his hand out from her grip...
'Kyun...???' Riddhima ask crossing her hands on chest...
'Bas nehi jaa sakte..' Armaan said...
'Tik hai, aap nehi batana chahte hai toh main Niks se puchti hoon...' Riddhima said taking her mobile...

Before Riddhima could dial Nikki's number, Armaan snatch the mobile and lock it back... Riddhima raise her eyebrow very well knowing something was there that Armaan wasn't going to tell her easily... Armaan gave her nervous expression as he slowly ruffle his hair...
'Mr, u better spill the beans...' Riddhima said in a stern voice...
'Woh...' Armaan stop not knowing how to tell her...

Armaan knows she would laugh at this because she is a doctor and she would know just walking in the water wouldn't get a person sick easily but in his case, it's a lot different... If by mistake also he drink or take a bath in cold water at night, he would easily fall sick and it doesn't matter the cold water barely touch him...

Riddhima waited for Armaan to speak out the truth but when he didn't make an affect to speak, Riddhima thought ones again give a last chance to him and he didn't say, she would speak to Nikki than and there...
'Armaan...' Riddhima call his name...
'Dekho Riddhima, I know you are a doctor and might not believe this but...' Armaan stop again to think if he was doing the right thing or not...
'But what Armaan...' Riddhima asked...
'But... That... I...' Armaan wasn't sure if he should tell her or not...
'Oh fine don't tell me...' Riddhima said getting irritated with Armaan behavior...

Armaan got relief seeing how Riddhima easily let the matter go off, only he didn't know she was getting irritated that Armaan was taking so much time to reveal the reason behind why he can't walk in the water at night, that too with his lover... Armaan who was relief was shocked next second when Riddhima snatch back her mobile from him...
'Main ab Niks koh call karke puchungi...' Riddhima said...
'No way...' Armaan said making Riddhima look at him...
'If you can't tell me, kissi se toh puchna padega na...' Riddhima said...
'Yaar, I get sick...' Armaan said...
'As in...???' Riddhima asked...
'As in it will make me get a bad cold and sneezing...' Armaan said closing his eyes shut accepting to hear Riddhima laugh echo around them...

When Armaan didn't hear anything, he slowly open his eyes to see Riddhima staring at him as if she was trying to understand if he is real or not... Armaan gave a nervous expression, being still not sure if Riddhima has heard him correct...
'Riddhima...???' Armaan call her name softly...
'You are scared of getting a cold and sneezing...???' Riddhima asked to make sure...
'A red nose too...' Armaan said like a kid...

Riddhima couldn't help but a smile form on her lips seeing his cute and innocent expression... His orbs, which was showing innocent which make Riddhima once again fall in love with him all over again... Seeing Riddhima smile, a pout form in his lips very well knowing now Riddhima would tease him to death...
'Awww, my baby is too cute...' Riddhima said moving close to him and pulling his cheeks trying to hold her laughter knowing he would feel bad if she laugh at him...

Riddhima couldn't hold her smile but control laughing out loud so Armaan wouldn't get embarrassed because for any guy, it's really a huge matter to let his girl know a weak point of him... Not that every girl would make fun of the guy but their ego is too big to let a single weak point to come in front of anyone...
'Don't baby me, I m not a baby and don't call me cute...' Armaan said moving her hands off from him...
'But you are too adorable, just like a cute small baby...' Riddhima said putting her hands around his waist and giving a quick kiss on Armaan cheeks...

Armaan who was sulking hearing the words Riddhima was calling him, smile feeling Riddhima lips on his cheeks... Secretly, Armaan love when Riddhima address him like that but he don't want to show her how much he enjoy her attention when she baby him...
'I love you Armaan...' Riddhima said hugging him and resting her head on his shoulder...
'I love you too...' Armaan said hugging her back, hiding his face on her neck, inhaling her scent which make he loose his sense...

They stood hugging like that for sometimes when a naughty idea stuck on Riddhima mind as a smirk form in her lips... Armaan who was unaware of what was going in Riddhima mind, was enjoying their closeness thinking how he got so lucky to have her in his life...

Armaan was lost in his own world, who didn't realized when Riddhima took a turn making Armaan back face to the water... She keeps clicking him more and more, making Armaan step back to balance themselves not realizing Riddhima was taking him close to the water...

Before Armaan mind could register, they were in the water and feeling the cold water Armaan jump apart breaking the hug to hear Riddhima giggle... Armaan was shocked to react and next moment he felt something on his face making his eyes close with Riddhima laugh in the background...

When his mind register what was Riddhima up to, he open his eyes to see himself half wet with Riddhima splashing water towards him... Seeing Armaan looking towards her, Riddhima run for her life knowing Armaan wouldn't leave her for doing this to him...

Laughing, Armaan chase Riddhima till she got tired and surrendered herself in his arms... Armaan also hugs her as he look her face which was red due to all the running and laughing... Smile got huge on Armaan lips seeing how much Riddhima was enjoying being with him, without wasting a second Armaan place his lips on her taking her to a soulful kiss...



NEXT DAY

Riddhima was in round when she got a pager saying someone has come to meet her, thinking who it might be at this time of the day as it was around 10 in the morning she make her way to the nurse station... For a second Riddhima thought it might be a patient family member but seeing who it was Riddhima was really surprise as she wasn't expecting the person to be here at this hour...
'Armaan...' Riddhima whisper thinking what might happen that landed him there...

Riddhima knows how much Armaan hate to be in hospital but sometimes he just drop in to see Riddhima if works keep them busy... As they had spend the previous night together, Riddhima wondered why Armaan has come to meet her again today...

Before Riddhima could approach to him, she heard him sneezing... Riddhima was surprise as she never thought the little fun she had previous night would really get him cold and sneezing which he hates so much... Armaan who was sneezing one after another, look around feeling Riddhima present...

Riddhima felt bad seeing his condition as it was her fault that after when Armaan tell her it would get him sick, she had splash water on him just to have some fun with him... Riddhima never thought it would truly happen but seeing his face, red nose and watery eyes, Riddhima understood how much it must be irritating him...

Armaan gave her a small smile which Riddhima return, she hold his hand and lead him to her cabin not caring those nurses, ward-boys and other people looking at them with an interest to know who is this guy that Riddhima was taking along with her...
'I m so sorry Armaan...' Riddhima said ones they were inside her cabin letting the door shut behind them...

Armaan who was about to reply but couldn't as another set of sneezing came along making his eyes burn, nose more red than it was and his head heavier as it might fall off from its place... Riddhima make him sit quickly and gave him a tissue while she fished in to her drawer as she search for some medicines for him...

When she found one, she quickly pour water in to a glass and forward it to Armaan who took it without making fuss which he usually do... Riddhima understood how much it might be making him feel sick, she just couldn't help but felt guilty as tears form in her eyes to see Armaan got sick because of her...

Armaan who shut his eyes after taking medicine as the sour taste hit his mouth, open his eyes when slowly the taste started go... He look towards Riddhima to thank her but seeing her teary eyes, Armaan quickly stood up keeping the empty glass he was holding...
'Kiya huva jaan...' Armaan asked moving close to her cupping her face...
'I m sorry...' Riddhima whisper as she found her voice difficult...
'Riddhima, it wasn't your fault...' Armaan said...
'It was mine Armaan, I should have take it seriously when u said u get sick easily...' Riddhima said lowering her eyelash not being able to look at his eyes...
'Riddhima, dekho meri taraf...' Armaan said trying to look at her eyes...
'I m sorry...' Riddhima whisper again looking towards him...
'It's not a big deal honey... When I have my personal doctor to whom I can come anytime I want, I didn't mind getting sick every day just to meet you baby...' Armaan said moving his face close to her and lingering his lips on Riddhima forehead...

Riddhima smile still tears in her eyes to hear how Armaan was trying to make her not feel guilty and feeling Armaan lips on her skin to make her believe how much he loves her... They hugs each other but it was broke soon as again Armaan sneeze...
'God bless you...' Riddhima said...

Armaan smile and Riddhima make him sit as she check her schedule to see if she has any important surgeries line up for the day... Seeing Armaan like that, she thought to take rest of the day off so she could take care of Armaan...
'I should leave...' Armaan said checking the time...
'Wait...' Riddhima said...
'Kiya huva...' Armaan asked...
'I will go with you...' Riddhima said...
'But your duty...???' Armaan asked...
'I can take the night shift...' Riddhima said...
'But...' Armaan was cut by Riddhima...
'Armaan, ghar mein koi nehi hoga iswaqt... Niks bhi uni pe hogi aur uncle bhi kaam pe toh aap akele ghar pe, koi hoga bhi nehi aapka khayal rakhne...' Riddhima said...
'Kisne kaha main ghar jaa raha hoon...' Armaan asked...
'Kyun, aap ghar nehi jaa rahe...' Riddhima asked...
'Haan, main toh bas tumse description lene aaya ta... Mera important meeting hai lunch ke baad...'Armaan said...
'Cancel it...' Riddhima said taking her purse and mobile...
'What...' Armaan asked shocked...
'Maine kaha cancel kardo, aap meri saath ghar jaa rahe ho aur rest karenge pura din...' Riddhima said...
'Lekin...' Armaan was cut by Riddhima who stood in front of him...
'Armaan, I know aapke sar dard se phate jaa rahe hai... Aapke aankhein bhi laal hai aur bohot jhal raha hai... Is haalat mein bhi aap kaam karenge, aaj rest nehi kiya toh kal aap bistar se bhi nehi utpaenge body ache ke wajahse...' Riddhima said...

Armaan lower his head knowing Riddhima was telling the truth and there was no way that Armaan wants to spend a whole week in home if he ignore his health today... Seeing Armaan has no words to deny, Riddhima ask him to wait till she come back as she has to take permission from her father before leaving...

Armaan sit, with his eyes closed and holding his head on his hands still Riddhima come back... When he felt his mobile vibrate in his pocket, he took it out to see Riddhima name flashing... He wondered why she was calling, he answer it to hear her asking to come out to the nurse station as she was waiting for him there...

Armaan make his way out as he make a call to his PA, telling him to cancel his meetings and also inform Karan that he was going home because of his health... Karan got worried as no one was in home but Armaan inform that Riddhima is with him which make Karan relief knowing she would take a good care of him until Karan or Nikki reach home...

Without anymore question, they end the call and Armaan saw Riddhima waiting for him... As soon she saw him, they move out from the hospital holding each other hand... Riddhima took her car as she tell Armaan they can send someone to pick up his car later... Before reaching home, Riddhima stop to a pharmacy to get medicines for Armaan as he rest all the way to home letting Riddhima drive...

Once they were in home, Riddhima send Armaan to his room and got soup ready for him... By the time Riddhima came, Armaan had changed but was working on his laptop... Riddhima shook her head and took it away making Armaan look with his innocent eyes...
'No more work, only rest... Chalo yeh soup peelo aur sojao...' Riddhima said...
'Soup...???' Armaan said making face...
'Armaan, u need it.. Common have it...' Riddhima said...

When Armaan didn't make any move, Riddhima sit in front of him and started to feed him... Making faces, Armaan finished his soup and soon he was laying on bed with his head resting on Riddhima lap as she care his hair and forehead trying to less his headache... Holding Riddhima free hand close to his heart, Armaan close his eyes with a smile on his lips as Riddhima stroke his hair letting sleep take over him...

FLASHBACK END

Riddhima trace was break feeling her mobile vibrating, she look to see Nikki name flashing... Riddhima knows why she was calling so cutting the call, she sent her a msg saying she would be back soon with Armaan... Riddhima move to Armaan removing her heels and sit next to him holding her dress carefully not letting it get in the water...

Feeling someone present, Armaan look towards her... Armaan wasn't surprise to see Riddhima there as he knows she would find him as soon as she realized his absent in the party... Armaan look back in to the deep pool without saying anything knowing very well, Riddhima would understand his silent...

Riddhima also sit with her legs in the pool as she move close to Armaan, holding his arm... She knows Armaan wouldn't speak what's going in his heart and mind, so she just rest her head on his shoulder not wanting to question him at the moment...

They sit like that for sometimes, before Riddhima move out looking at his face to see the happiness has fade from his face which was shown few hours ago, the moment his eyes laid on her... Riddhima very well know the reason but she don't wish to talk about it knowing it would make him feel more misreable...
'Armaan, we should go inside...' Riddhima said as she look at him...

Riddhima thought for a minute that Armaan would deny but to her surprise, Armaan stood up and collect his tie, socks and shoes... Riddhima sit watching him wear his socks and shoes, before wearing his tie he look towards Riddhima hoping she could do it for him this time...

Riddhima smile seeing his expression very well understanding what he wants, she forward her hand asking him to help her stand as her dress were too heavy and she don't want to mess it up... Armaan gladly took her hand and pull her up, Riddhima took the tie and put it around his neck as she started to do the knot...

Riddhima kept looking at Armaan as she did his tie, Armaan just kept looking at her but seeing the lost in his eyes Riddhima just wondered what he must be thinking... She don't know what exactly Armaan heard her mother's friends speak about him but she knows this that it must have hurt him and he must be cursing himself for thinking he might have ruin her life...

ARMAAN POV START

It has been sometimes when dad took Riddhima away from me saying he wanted to introduce her to some people... I kept looking here and there to get a glimpse of her but to my badluck I couldn't spot her in the crowd... My friends were holding me as they kept teasing me but it  didn't affect me as I accept how much in love I m with my girl...

When the time keep passing without getting to see Riddhima for a long time than I expected, I thought to get a drink before I go in search for my lady love... So excusing myself from my friends, I move to the drink counter as I order a wine for myself...

I don't like alcohol so I avoid touching it or get near it... As I wait for my drink, I look around to see some familiar faces around... My eyes stop on my father but Riddhima to be seen nowhere... Thinking where and with whom she might be, I face to the waiter who was behind the counter...

My ears caught when someone took my name as it follow with giggles... I wonder who was so much interest in talking about me, only to see a bunch of adult ladies... I didn't mean to hear their conversation but what I heard make me curious to know why they were so interest in me...

I didn't believe what I would be hearing but realizing they were making fun of me and my mental condition a few months ago, I felt really bad... From their talk, I realized they were friends of Riddhima's mother... Who didn't like me to be partner of her daughter before she realized how pure and strong our love was for each other...

I look towards them to see Padma ma nowhere to be seen, I know she has accepted me the way I m... Maybe sake of her only daughter or child who was determined to get married me or no one else... I didn't blame Padma ma for telling her friends about me as she might have tell them before she was found of me...

Still it make me feel really bad as people just can't get over the fact why I had been like that in a phase of my life... Don't they understand how it feels to see someone who is closed to your heart get burn down in front of your eyes and u couldn't save the person...

My heart ache as it remind me of my mother, who is no longer with me... Feeling the pain, I feel to be alone so without caring or informing anyone I left to let my mind cool before I loose control over it... I just move out to get fresh air to keep my mind and heart calm before it take another roller-coaster ride to the incident...

I move to the garden and seeing the pool, I felt to sit there to have alone time for myself... Somewhere in my heart, I knew soon Riddhima would find me when she get to know my absent but never thought, she would find me too soon as I could feel her present around me after like ten minutes I had come out here...

I felt afraid to think what if she ask me why I had come here, I wasn't ready to tell her that those talks about my mental condition still affect me when she don't give a damn to those talks by some strangers... It doesn't matter to her unless I love her the way she loves me...

I look towards her expecting her to shoot questions in a row but seeing her calm face, I just move my eyes away from her not wanting to break down in front of her so easily... I try to keep myself in check as I felt Riddhima move close to me, holding my arm and rest her head on my shoulder...

I just felt my heart and mind slowly getting calm feeling her present and closeness which make me believe, nothing could go wrong when she is with me... No questions was asked by her which make me feel better seeing how she understand me so well...
'Armaan, we should go inside...' I heard her voice which broke the silent...

As my mind and heart was calm but still I felt some uneasiness to go in front of those people who still think I could never keep a girl happy in our life... I don't want Riddhima to know how much it hurt me so without denying, I stood up and collect my things...

I look around to see if she could help me with my tie, seeing how glad she was to do it for me as she forward her hand asking to help her up to feet, I move close to her being glad to give a helping hand to my wife... Once she was on her feet, she move close to me taking the tie and putting it around my neck...

I couldn't help but admire, how beautiful she was looking under the moonlight... I know she must be worried to not to see me around a while ago, as my eyes move on her face I saw the dry tearlines on her gorgeous face which was glowing a while ago...

I felt bad to make her cry on this night when it should be glowing with her beautiful smile on her face... I felt stupid to make her cry, just because some people think I m not good enough to keep her happy, rest of her life... I vow myself, never to make her cry anymore for any other person because they are no one to judge me and my love for my wife...




ARMAAN POV END




RIDDHIMA POV START

I was so glad that I found Armaan, for a minute I got scared not knowing in which condition he would be... Seeing him all calm, I knew something must be going in his mind and heart, but what I didn't know as he didn't speak a word...

We had been sitting their like that for god knows how many minutes, when it started to get late I thought it would be better to go inside so bidding bye to the guest, we could go home and be with each other.. When I told him we should go inside, without speaking a word he got ready to move inside...

I waited for him to put his shoes back while he look at me as if asking I could help him with the tie through his eyes... I was glad hoping Armaan would tell me what he was feeling at the moment but he just kept staring at me as I stood in front of him as I make his tie...

Seeing his lost expression, I knew he must be thinking probably about me or us... I don't want him to have another thought about our relation because I wouldn't dare think my life without him when now we are knot in this beautiful relation call marriage...

So thinking I should let him know, how much he means to me no matter what other people says, I make myself ready to have this one side conversation knowing Armaan wouldn't speak a word when he is hurt which clearly shows in his eyes the moment he look towards me a while ago when I found him there...

Hoping Armaan wasn't thinking to take any such decision which make us both lead to another heartbreak, I thought to make things clear before any such thought cross his mind which wouldn't let him think straight when it comes to his health condition...



RIDDHIMA POV END

When Riddhima was done with the tie, she kept her hand on his chest as she let her body move closed to him... Armaan just stood not realizing how long he had been lost in his own thought but soon it was break with Riddhima closeness...

Armaan look closely in her as she gave a smile to him, seeing no return smile Riddhima was sure he was too lost to think about anything else... So keeping her one hand on his chest close to his heart, she let her other hand move around his neck...
'I love you...' Riddhima whisper slowly look straight in his eyes...

For a moment, it was blank before the words reach to his mind... Smile form in his lips as a hope make its way back on his expressive eyes... It didn't take much time them to be drown in each other eyes which shows deep love to the other...
'Thank you so much Armaan, for being my husband and life partner... Whom I desire to spend rest of my life, being love and make me believe every single second of my life how much anyone could love me so deeply... I wish, nothing to come between us to part us away but make us grow closer and closer every moment our heart beat...' Riddhima whisper, ever so softly as she move her face closed to him...

That was it for Armaan, whatever he was thinking a while ago every thing seems so useless in front of those words just Riddhima had let out in front of him... Armaan was deepily touch hearing how her love for him is growing each second of their life with their heart beats...
'I love you too, I wish I could take you away with me...' Armaan said touching his forehead against her's...
'Take me...' Riddhima said putting all her weight on him...
'Just few more hours, than it would be just me and you...' Armaan said tracing his nose tips on her cheeks...
'I can't wait to be with you, alone...' Riddhima said closing her eyes feeling Armaan hot breath caring her face...
'Neither me but we had to wait till we reach to our honeymoon destination...' Armaan said enjoying their moment without caring about any single person who were waiting for them back in the hotel...
'Honeymoon destination...???' Riddhima asked open her eyes...
'Yes baby, soon after the party end... We are going to start our journey to spend alone time with each other...' Armaan said...
'Yeh kab huva...???' Riddhima asked...
'Aaj jab tum mere liye tayyar hone gaye...' Armaan said...
'And where are we going for honeymoon...???' Riddhima asked...
'Not so soon Mrs. Mallik, u have to wait to see it from your own eyes...' Armaan said giving a quick pack on her lips...
'Armaan, that's not fair...' Riddhima said whinning as she hates surprises...
'Everything is fair in love and war wifey...' Armaan said pulling her close in to a hug...

Riddhima hit him playfully for using such a cheesy line on her, Armaan smile hiding his face on her bare neck as he inhale her sweet scent with his lips touching on her skin... Riddhima also pull him closer as she was glad to see Armaan didn't take the happening too much in his heart which is the result that he was just trying to tease her by hiding their honeymoon destination...

Their moment got break with Armaan mobile vibrating, they break the hug but still Armaan hold Riddhima close to him as he took out his mobile to see Karan name flashing... Armaan answer the call as Riddhima stood watching him without getting bore as she admire the handsome guy who was her husband...

Armaan talk Karan saying they are just outside and coming inside in five minutes, after ending the call Armaan look at her with raising his eyebrow as if asking why she was looking at him like that.. Riddhima just shake her head to side ways and look around to see where she has kept her heels...

As she knows they need to move inside, she wore her heels back and soon they were moving inside, holding hands as Riddhima kept asking about the honeymoon destination and how he got everything arrange so quickly as a day before, Armaan has only ask her if she wants to go any particular place for their honeymoon...

Armaan didn't reveal the place as he kept changing the topic trying to divert Riddhima mind but to his bad luck, Riddhima was in no mood to let him change the topic as she kept asking every than and now about their honeymoon destination as she was excited like a kid whose parents are planning to take her to Disneyland...

As they move back in the hall, Karan spot them and ask questions why they had suddenly left... Armaan handle the matter smartly as he don't want his father to be worried about anything that happen... Also Armaan knows, it was useless as it didn't affect him much with Riddhima being his side, to understand nothing can change her love to him...

So smiling to every single person, Armaan and Riddhima move to have dinner before bidding bye to the guest as they has started to leave with the party coming to an end... Nikki who was worried for Armaan, was happy to see her brother smiling, she mouth a thank you to Riddhima when she look towards her, blinking her eyes as if telling Nikki, nothing could ever go wrong with them being together...
