An AR OS :Koi Shikwa Nehi, Sirf Mohabbat



Lady was walking around the hall looking towards the entrance while man sit reading a newspaper as he kept looking to the lady seeing how impatience she was getting... Smiling knowing the reason, man try to concentrate reading the newspaper but the lady was distracting him by not sitting in one place for a second...



When this continue for like another ten minutes, man kept the newspaper knowing he wouldn't ba able to read a single word on it... He look at his wrist watch, checking the time wondering how long she would keep waiting desperately without taking a rest for a second...

Man stood up looking towards the entrance where the lady was looking but seeing no one coming through it, he just sigh knowing whoever was to come will take sometimes to reach... Seeing the man stood up leaving the newspaper, lady look towards him...
'Aap call karke dekho na, aur kitna waqt lagega pochne mein...' Lady ask...
'Nandini, aajaenge... Kaha jaenge woh dono...' Man said...
'Karan please, mujhe bohot chinta ho rahi hai... Specially meri beti ki...' Nandini said as she shake with fear...
'Nandini, chinta toh mujhe bhi ho rahi hai... Pata nehi kaise hoga woh, jabse woh khabar suna hai mujhe bhi sirf uski chinta khaye jaa rahi hai...' Karan said...
'Pata nehi, kaise hogi woh...' Nandini said looking towards the entrance once again...

Before Karan could reply, they heard a car pull in front of the house... Nandini and Karan look each other and next second they quickly move towards the entrance to see if it was them or not... They stop middle of the hall seeing a guy coming towards them...

Guy, who was in his earliest 30's were making his way towards Nandini and Karan... He has a well built body as he wore a white shirt and dark grey jeans with a shade hiding his eyes... Nandini quickly move towards him taking him in a hug, who hugs her back...
'Kaise ho...' Nandini asked...
'Main tik hun mom..' Guy said coming out from the hug...
'Armaan...' Karan call him as he move to hugs him...
'Dad...' Armaan hugs him back...

After hugging their son, they look around as if they were searching for someone... Armaan gave a small smile, very well knowing for whom they were looking for but he knows how heart broken they will be to see her condition when she refused to recognized them...

When they couldn't see their daughter, both look towards Armaan who was standing with a small smile on his face... Nandini took out his shades knowing his eyes can never lie to them and seeing the pain with little tears sparkling in his gorgeous electric orbs, she felt her heart stop beating for a second thinking how worst things could be...

Nandini and Karan wait for Armaan to speak but when he didn't for another minute or so Nandini look towards Karan as if telling she was feeling scared by their son silent... Karan put his arms around Nandini shoulder, blinking his eyes as if saying everything would be fine...
'Armaan...' Karan call his name...
'Kaha hai woh...' Nandini asked...
'Mom, dad... Please apne aapko sambhalna, I know aap dono ke liye mushkil hoga jitna mere liye ta lekin humein himmat rakhna hoga...' Armaan said...
'Beta, tum humein dara rahe ho ab... Kiya huva hai usse...???' Nandini asked...
'Aap khud samajh jaenge mom...' Armaan said...

Leaving Karan and Nandini there, Armaan move out and again came back holding a girl hand as she was hidding behind Armaan... She was just two three years younger to Armaan and she was looking around the place as if it was a new place to her...

When she saw Nandini and Karan, she move herself move behind Armaan holding his shirt from her free hand as her other hand was in Armaan's hand... Nandini and Karan look towards her as they admire, how beautiful she was looking after ages as they had seen her when she was young...

True, they had seen her pictures but they couldn't meet her personally because she was living in another country with her parents... Nandini and Karan knows her parents as they are friends from ages, so Armaan and she also know each other due to their parents being friends...
'Riddhima...' Nandini call her but she hide behind Armaan...

Seeing how Riddhima was hiding and shaking with fear, Nandini and Karan look towards Armaan to get some answer from him... Armaan try to bring Riddhima out in front of his parents but she hide her face on his back...
'Armaan yeh...' Karan ask seeing how strangely she was behaving as if she don't know them...
'Dad, Riddhi...' Armaan was cut by Riddhima...
'Dost, mujhe... nehi rehna... yaha...' Riddhima said...

Karan and Nandini was shocked to hear this, Armaan turn around facing Riddhima knowing she needs to understand that they had to live in this house with these people... Seeing Riddhima different behavior, Karan and Nandini understood something wasn't right...
'Please chalo...' Riddhima said not looking anywhere else but at the floor...
'Riddhima, meri baat suno...' Armaan said holding her face...
'Nehi... nehi... Mujhe nehi... rehna...' Riddhima said getting panic with new people around her...
'Riddhima, yeh mera mom dad hai... Tumhe darne ki koi zarurat nehi hai...' Armaan said making her look towards him...

Seeing the honest in his eyes, Riddhima calm down but she was still scared to look at Karan and Nandini... Riddhima holds Armaan hand tight making him smile seeing how she wants him by her side every second of her life...
'Mujhe neend... aa rahi hai..' Riddhima said slowly making Armaan smile...

From a week, Armaan was with her as he has gone to bring her back after coming to know the sudden death of her parents... Due to the sudden shocked, Riddhima was mentally disturb and she has become a child forgetting the dreadful truth of her present...

First Armaan couldn't also believe it but when the doctor confirm it, he had to accept this truth... As Riddhima has no other relatives after her parents, Armaan decide to take her as Doctor recommended to change the atmosphere so it would be good for her...

As Riddhima is always scared of new people from childhood and don't adjust in new place easily, again she was having difficult mentally being a child... Even Armaan had difficult in gaining her trust first but he was the only one with her when she gain conscious after the shocked, it didn't take much time Riddhima to accept him as a friend and well-wisher...

So whenever she didn't like to meet new people, she will just make this excuse of feeling sleepy... Armaan knows it was her way of escaping and he don't want to force her as Doctor ask to make her comfortable and not force to meet people because her mind is like a kid and it may affect badly...
'Chalo main tumhe, tumhari new room dikhati hun...' Armaan said leaving her face...

Riddhima quickly hold Armaan hand and put her other hand on his arms still hiding herself behind him... She wasn't looking at anyone as she keep her head lower... Armaan look towards Nandini and Karan to see their sad expression understanding what must have happen to Riddhima...
'Mom, dad... I will talk you in a while...' Armaan said...

Not having words, they just nodded their head asking him to go ahead and let Riddhima feel comfortable because already their present were making her scared and very much uncomfortable... Armaan took Riddhima to her room while Karan and Nandini kept looking them, Nandini couldn't help but cry seeing Riddhima condition...
'Sambhalo Nandini...' Karan said...
'Yeh kiya hogaya Karan...' Nandini ask hiding her face in her palm...
'Sab tik hojaenge, humein bacche koh sambhalna hai...' Karan said...

Karan hugs Nandini, who silently cry in his arms... Even Karan was having tears in his eyes but they can't do anything to bring her parents back but give her the love of a parent that she should get... Controlling themselves, they wait till Armaan come and tell them what truly has happen that make Riddhima like this...


RIDDHIMA'S ROOM


Armaan stood near the door looking at Riddhima as she move around the room admiring how beautiful it was... Before coming back, Armaan has ask Nandini to ready a room for Riddhima as before Armaan left to bring Riddhima they had decide that Riddhima would be staying with them...

Riddhima was very happy with her new room which has lot's of teddies just the way she have back in her home... Armaan was looking at her as the smile wasn't leaving her lips seeing the teddies and she love every single thing in the room...

When she finally got satisfied with her new room, Riddhima look around to see where Armaan has gone... Riddhima expression change for a second not finding Armaan by her side but seeing Armaan in the room, colors came back to her face...
'Bohottt accha hai dost, mujhe meri nayi kamra bohottt accha laga...' Riddhima said looking around clapping her hands with excitement...
'Yeh toh acchi baat hai Riddhima, chalo tum sojao abhi...' Armaan said...
'Nehi...' Riddhima said moving towards Armaan and holding his hand...
'Kyun, tumhe toh neend aa rahi ti na...' Armaan asked very well knowing she wasn't feeling sleepy...
'Nehi...' Riddhima again said, this time shaking her head side to side...
'Phir neeche tumne jhut bola...' Armaan asked...

This time Riddhima just shake her head in yes and lower her head knowing she had done a mistake... Armaan smile seeing her cute expression and he just wanted to hugs her tight but control himself as he maintain a straight serious face...
'Riddhima, maine tumse kaha ta na... Jhut bolna acchi baat nehi hai...' Armaan said softly making her look towards him...
'Lekin mujhe nayi logo se milna accha nehi lagta...' Riddhima said cutely with a pout on her lips...
'Phir bhi aapko aise bahana bana ne ki kiya zarurat ti, un logo koh bura lagte na... Aur tumhe pata hai, woh log mere ma baap hai... Jitna main tumhe apna maanta hun, woh log bhi tumhe apne beti maante hai...' Armaan said...
'Jaise ma papa...' Riddhima ask as she remember her parents...
'Haan...' Armaan said as he wait to see if Riddhima react to be remind her parents...

Neither of them speak for a minute as Armaan stood looking at Riddhima expression, Riddhima was lost in somewhere than she started to shake with fear... Riddhima hide her face as she started to move behind and soon sit near the bed moving her knee closed to her body...
'Riddhima...' Armaan call her name but she didn't calm down...

Armaan move close to her and hugs her, caring her back to calm her down... As Armaan knows Riddhima from childhood, somehow he knows what was making her scared... When Riddhima was around 3 years, some children's has scared her dressing as ghost's which has red eyes and once, her mother tell her those ghost's would come if she lies which make her more scared remembering about the ghost's with red eyes whenever she lie...

For months, Riddhima get scared of seeing red lights which rare see in houses and street... So her parents as well Mallik's avoid putting red lights but don't know how those kids got to know about it which leads them to scared her every time they find her alone...

First few months, Riddhima's parent didn't understand why Riddhima get so scared but later they got to know about the kids scaring her being ghost's with red eyes... So from that day, Riddhima get scared seeing any red lights... Being friend with Mallik's, they have share this little information about Riddhima with them...

It was the reason that Riddhima always be scared around new people and didn't adjust in new place easily because she can't trust anyone easily... Just because of some bunch of kids, who didn't realized their prank could cause so much fear in Riddhima's mind, they had done the damage being unknown that it was a life-time problem for Riddhima...

So whenever Riddhima get remind about the red eyes ghost, she started to get panic and wouldn't calm easily unless she fall asleep... Armaan just hold Riddhima close caring her back, whispering there isn't anything to be scared when he is with her felt that slowly Riddhima was getting calm...

Hearing Riddhima whispering something, Armaan move her away to see her fall asleep while holding Armaan shirt tight in her fist... Riddhima was mumbling in her sleep as sweat-beans in her forehead and still shaking a little with disturb lines on her forehead...

Armaan took her in his arms and make her sleep on the bed, he didn't remove her hand letting her be in deep slumber before taking her hand off from his shirt freeing himself from her hold... When Armaan was sure she was in deel slumber, he move her hand and gave a teddy which she hold close to her heart...

Armaan keep sitting next to her, caring her head till the disturbance lines vanished from her forehead as she was in dreamless sleep... Riddhima stop mumbling making Armaan believe that she wouldn't wake up for another hour or two...

Armaan kiss Riddhima forehead and left the room letting the door open half so he would easily hear when she wakes up... Armaan move down to see Nandini and Karan waiting for him, seeing Nandini red eyes Armaan understood that his mother has cried out her eyes after he left with Riddhima...

Armaan move to Nandini and sit hugging her, Nandini gave a small teary smile to him as she rubbed his arms as if telling him she was fine now... Karan also smile forcefully as they wait for Armaan to tell them what happen when he found Riddhima a week back...

Armaan told everything to Nandini and Karan, how he found her unconscious in the hospital when he reach there, how she broke hearing about her parent's death and faint again... After she again gain conscious, how strange she was behaving and what doctor said about her mental condition which has affected due to the shocked...

Also Armaan told them what Doctor says to do if they want Riddhima to be normal, change the atmosphere and make her meet people so she would get over with the fear of meeting new people and facing the world without scaring every little thing around her...

However, she needs Armaan by her side every single minute and as they are back, Armaan knows he wouldn't be able to be around her 24 hours until she get comfortable with Nandini, Karan and other people in the house as they have several servants to do work around the house...

When Armaan finally finished telling everything he has witness from the day he found Riddhima a week ago, silent took around the place as Nandini and Karan try to believe what they had just heard... Also Armaan told them about the fear Riddhima had in childhood, it was back and how she get panic and scared remembering the incident from childhood...

Everyone's eyes were wet as tears were continuously falling from their eyes, Nandini felt bad for not being by Riddhima side but her health condition didn't allow her to travel so far to go and get back her daughter... Having Armaan as the only child, both Nandini and Karan love Riddhima as their own child just like Riddhima's parents love Armaan as their own child...

So Armaan took the responsibility to bring back Riddhima to them as Karan wait back with Nandini knowing it wouldn't be good to leave the lady alone in the house with the servants... They know Armaan would take care of everything and just as expected Armaan came back with Riddhima, took a good care of her till she was brought back to his family...

Nandini and Karan knows, till Armaan would take of her care until she recover fully... They might haven't meet for few years but still, they were childhood friends... They might haven't talk regular but they used to leave msgs or call once a while to check on how the other is doing...

So being away still they were connected and this sudden change of Riddhima's behavior did make Armaan break too but he was trying to be strong for only Riddhima so they could make her better...
'Jo hona likha hai, woh toh hokar rahega... Ab humein Riddhima ki dyan rakhna chahiyeh, usko yeh kabhi ehsaas hone nehi dena chahiyeh woh akele hai...' Karan said breaking the silent...
'Kaise sambhalenge usko Padma aur Shashank bhaisaab ke bina...' Nandini said...
'Sambhalna hoga mom, hum usko aise tutne nehi de sakte...' Armaan said...
'Armaan, jab woh darti hai usko sambhalna bohot mushkil hota hai... Woh baat uske dhimag mein itni hadd tak beit chuke hai, uske dhimag mein kissi aur ki baat asaani se pochte nehi hai...' Nandini said...
'I know mom, maine usko yeh ek hafte mein dekha hai aur sambhala bhi hai... Usko humhari care aur pyar ki zarurat hai, bas kuch din mein woh pehle ke tarah hojaenge...' Armaan said...
'Lekin Armaan...' Nandini was cut by Armaan...
'Mom, u trust me na...' Armaan ask holding her hands in his...
'Of course beta...' Nandini said...
'Phir Riddhima koh lekar bhi mujhpe barosa karo mom... Main apna pura 100% dunga usse tik karne ke liye, aur mujhe upar wale pe barosa hai woh aapke jo barosa mujhpe hai, usse kabhi haarne nehi denge...' Armaan said...
'Lekin Armaan, logon ke muh kaise band karenge hum.. Woh tarah tarahke baatein karenge Riddhima beti koh lekar...' Karan said...
'Mujhe usse koi farak nehi padta dad, bas main yehi chahta hun Riddhima jaldi tik hojae...' Armaan said...
'Hum bhi yehi chahte hai...' Karan said...
'Phir aap dono logo ke baaton pe dyan mat dena, ho sake toh avoid karo nehi toh usse jawab dekar unka muh band karo kyunki sach hum jaante hai aur kissi aur koh jaanne ki zarurat nehi hai... Logo koh toh bas moka chahiyeh hota hai kissi ki kamzor koh bada karke dusron ke kaan tak pochana... Humein dusron ki fikar karne ke bhajai Riddhima pe apna saara dyan dena chahiyeh...' Armaan said...
'Tum bilkul sahi bol rahe ho bacche, aur hum dono aapke saath hai... Hum apne tarafse bhi puri koshish karenge Riddhima pehle ke tarah hojae...' Nandini said...
'Bas kuch din mom, phir aap dekhna... Bohot jaldi sab kuch normal hojaenge...' Armaan said kissing Nandini hand...
'Haan baccha, sab kuch tik hojaenge kyunki Riddhima ke paas aap jaisa accha aur saccha dost jo hai...' Nandini said caring Armaan hair and kissing his forehead...

They sit talking how they could make Riddhima feel comfortable in the house and also with the people... Seeing how tired Armaan look and he would be able to rest until Riddhima wake up, Nandini ask Armaan to fresh up and rest for a while...

When Armaan left to his room but not before checking Riddhima who was still in her deep sleep, Nandini left to check lunch while Karan just sit thinking about his friend who was no longer with them but left their daughter to them to take care of her like their own child...

Karan knows, Shashank would want him to take his daughter responsibility in his absent so without being inform, Karan decide he would be Riddhima's guardian from today... Deciding what he needs to do, Karan left to contact with Shashank lawyer to make sure if it would be a problem if they had bring Riddhima, taking her responsibility in her parents absent...


AT NIGHT,
DINNER


Karan and Nandini were waiting for Armaan and Riddhima as Armaan had gone to get Riddhima who was in her new room whole day... Riddhima wasn't ready to leave or let anyone else in her room other than Armaan so somehow, Armaan went to bring her down for dinner...

When they didn't come as Karan and Nandini was waiting from 20 minutes, Nandini thought it would be better to let the child have dinner in room or else she might not have proper food... So she called a maid, asking to make a tray for Armaan Riddhima and take it up to Riddhima's room...
'Tohdi der aur rukhte hai Nandini...' Karan said...
'Mujhe nehi lagta yeh sahi hoga Karan, bacche koh waqt dena chahiyeh... Uske liye sab kuch naya hai yaha... Aise usse force karenge toh woh humse aur darenge aur main uske aankhon mein apne liye dar nehi dekh sakte...' Nandini said as tears form in her eyes as she remember the after incident...


FLASHBACK,
FEW HOURS AGO


When Riddhima wake up in the afternoon, she has come out from her room not finding Armaan... Nandini and Karan were in the hall after lunch as they didn't disturb the kids as they were sleeping... They move up to Riddhima's room when they heard Riddhima calling for Armaan, as Armaan was sleeping too Karan left to wake him while Nandini went to calm down Riddhima...

Riddhima was standing outside her room as she look around here and there not finding Armaan, she was holding one of the teddy which Nandini and Karan has got for her... Nandini felt bad seeing her condition as Riddhima was shaking due to fear...
'Bacchi...' Nandini call her...

Riddhima look towards Nandini but seeing her, she turn around hiding her face with both hands as she still hold her teddy... Nandini felt bad seeing how Riddhima was getting so scared to even look towards her...
'Dost... Dost.. Dost...' Riddhima keep chatting his name as she look in between her fingers with fear in her eyes...

Seeing Riddhima condition, Nandini felt her heart broke to several pieces as she couldn't see her child like this... Unknowingly, tears started to fall from her eyes but she quickly wipes it away as Riddhima turn her back towards Nandini...
'Armaan aa raha hai, aap kuch khaenge... Aapko bhuk lagi hogi na, main aapke liye kiya banaun...' Nandini ask...
'Nehi... nehi... Dost...' Riddhima said moving her head side to side as she ones again call for Armaan...
'Riddhima...' Armaan call...

Riddhima look around still with her hands on face, when she saw Armaan coming she move close to him holding his arms as she hide herself behind him... Armaan hold Riddhima hand which was on his arm and look towards his mother knowing how much Riddhima behavior must have hurt her...
'Main tum dono ke liye khana yaha bhejti hun...' Nandini said leaving from there controlling her tears...

Armaan and Karan saw the tears in Nandini's eyes but they know it would take sometimes for Riddhima to be comfortable and accept them...  Karan patted on Armaan back as he move knowing Nandini would need him, Armaan stood looking at his parents feeling bad how Riddhima's condition was breaking them, specially his mother so badly...


FLASHBACK END


Their trace was broke when they heard footsteps, they saw the maid coming back with the tray which Nandini send for Armaan and Riddhima... When Nandini look towards her with question, the maid stood with her head low...
'Waapas kyun leaayi...???' Nandini asked...
'Armaan Sir ne kaha, woh aur Riddhima ma'am yaha aakar khana khaenge aap dono ke saath...' Maid said...
'Lekin...' Nandini was about to speak but Karan hold her hand...
'Woh andar rakh doh...' Karan said...

When the maid left, Nandini look towards Karan not understanding why Armaan was hell bend to bring Riddhima in front of them when she isn't comfortable... True that Armaan told them that, doctor has ask to make Riddhima meet new people but forcing her that too this early, Nandini didn't find it good...
'Abhi Riddhima koh samjha ke humhare saamne nehi laenge toh kabhi nehi karpaenge... Uske dil mein jo dar hai, woh abhi se dur karne ki koshish kar raha hai humhara beta... Humein Armaan pe barosa karna chahiyeh, jo woh kar raha hai woh karne dena chahiyeh...' Karan said...
'Karan yeh aap...' Nandini was cut by Karan again...
'Sahi keh raha hun... Jitna tumhe takleef mil rahi hai Riddhima koh aise dekh ke, utna zyada Armaan koh mil raha hai Nandini... Woh apne dost koh is haalat mein nhi dekh sakte issiliye woh apne tarafse puri koshish kar raha hai jaldi apne dost koh tik kare...' Karan said...

Nandini kept quiet knowing whatever Karan was saying, it was right too... They have to start to make Riddhima comfortable around them, so its better to start today itself but Nandini was scared what if it make her health worst, she don't want to think what might happen in coming days if they force her to do anything which she aren't willing to do...


RIDDHIMA'S ROOM


Riddhima was sitting on the bed, hugging the teddy which Armaan has given her when she fell asleep in the afternoon... She had been carrying it all day as they had lunch in her room, than spending sometimes reading in the balcony which was attach to her room...

In evening, Armaan took Riddhima out saying he wants to show her his room so she can find him when she don't find him when she wake up... It was the only time she left the room and when they come back to her room, again she wasn't ready to leave...

Armaan knows she can't be in room whole day so he wanted to show her around so she could be free when she is going to live with them but here, Riddhima wasn't willing to leave her room so she just climb on her bed and hugs her teddy with her knee close to her body...
'Riddhima...' Armaan again call to see Riddhima moving her head side to side telling him she wouldn't step out from the room...

Few minutes ago, maid came with their food but Armaan send it back... Armaan knows Riddhima must be feeling hungry but he was also determine to take her out from the room but Riddhima was being too sturbborn to listen to him...
'Fine, phir main ice cream akele khaunga...' Armaan said at last knowing it would work...
'Ice cream...???' Riddhima ask happily as her eyes twinkle...
'Haan, maine socha tum yaha mere aur mere family ke saath rehne aaye ho toh tumhe treat dunga lekin khana nehi khaenge toh no ice cream...' Armaan said...
'Maine kab mana kiya... Tumne bhej diya khana...' Riddhima said pouting...
'Toh chalo neeche, mom dad ke saath khalenge... Uske baad hum ice cream bhi khaenge kyunki main apne mom dad ke bina nehi khaunga...' Armaan said..
'Kyun...' Riddhima asked...
'Kyunki meals ka time, family time hota hai... Aur mere toh koi bhai ya behen nehi hai, sirf mom dad hai...' Armaan said...
'Aur main...???' Riddhima ask with innocent eyes...
'Tum..???' Armaan asked...

Riddhima nodded her head making Armaan smile with her cute action, Armaan took Riddhima hand in his hand as he hold it in between his palms... Riddhima smile seeing him doing it and she put her free hand over his hand...
'Tum mere sabse accha dost...' Armaan said...
'Sacch...' Riddhima ask happily...
'Sacchh, lekin tum toh mujhe dost nehi maante na...' Armaan said...
'Kisne kaha...' Riddhima asked cutely...
'Mujhe dost maante toh, mere mom dad koh bhi apna te...' Armaan said...

Riddhima face fall hearing this as she felt the fear building up in her heart of thinking new people... Armaan was looking at her expression and seeing how the color fades in her face, Armaan press her hand softly making Riddhima look towards him...
'Woh dono tumse kuch nehi kahenge Riddhima, barosa haina tumhe apne dost pe...' Armaan said...
'Lekin...' Riddhima stop as she wasn't sure of herself...
'Riddhima, woh mera mom dad hai... Jab tum mujhpe barosa kar sakte hai toh unlogo koh kyun nehi...' Armaan said...
'Daat diya toh...' Riddhima ask softly...

Armaan smile hearing this but hide it because he knows it wouldn't give a good impression to Riddhima's mind at the moment seeing him smiling becaue she might think he is making fun of her innocent...
'Galati karenge toh daatenge, lekin tum good girl banke waqt pe khana aur medicines lenge toh woh kabhi nehi daatenge balki tumse bohot zyada pyaar karenge...' Armaan said...
'Sach mein...' Riddhima asked...
'Chalo dekhte hai, woh tumhe daat te ya nehi...' Armaan said standing, holding her hands...

First Riddhima didn't move but than slowly, she came out from the bed and Armaan took her out from the room to the dinning area... Armaan smile seeing how Riddhima move close to him when they were moving towards the dinning area seeing Karan and Nandini...

Riddhima stop but Armaan pull her slowly, as he blink her eyes telling her nothing is there to be scared... Armaan make Riddhima sit as he took the seat next to her and Karan who was sitting in the seat where the head of the house sit...

When Armaan and Riddhima joins them, Nandini started to serve Karan while Armaan serve Riddhima before starting to filled his plate... Armaan talk with Karan and Nandini, letting Riddhima have her dinner quietly... First, she sit without eating but when Armaan ask her to start, she slowly started to take small bites...

Nandini and Karan smile seeing how Riddhima keeps looking towards them every seconds, but seeing she didn't leave unless she finished her whole plate Nandini was glad that Armaan manage to bring her down to dinner... So letting her have dinner, other three talks till they finished their dinner...

As soon as Armaan finished,  Riddhima nudge him to let him know she was waiting... When Nandini and Karan look towards her, she lower her head and hold Armaan shirt as she was still scared of Nandini and Karan... They smile seeing how Riddhima was not making any contact...
'Mom, Dad... Main Riddhima koh ice cream khilane le jaa rahi hun... Aap dono chalenge..???' Armaan asked...
'Nehi beta, tum dono hokar aao...' Nandini said...
'Chalo na mom...' Armaan said...
'Phir kabhi Armaan, tum dono jao aur jitna ice cream humhari beti koh chahiyeh, sab de dena...' Karan said...

Looking look towards Karan when she hear this, Karan smile as he nodded saying he means it... Riddhima than look towards Nandini who blink her eyes making Riddhima smile and look at Armaan...
'Nehi dad, sirf ek ice cream milenge isko...' Armaan said making Riddhima smile vanished...
'Aise kaise nehi denge, zarur denge kyunki meri bitiya itni pyaari jo hai...' Nandini said moving Riddhima side and caring her hair...

Riddhima felt uncomfortable but she didn't show it as Nandini and Karan were taking her side... Armaan smile as he saw Riddhima hugging her teddy tight but didn't make a move when Nandini move to her side...
'Riddhima beti, Armaan ne tumhe ek se zyada nehi diya toh mujhe batanaya... Main iska class lunga jab aap dono waapas aayenge...' Karan said...

Riddhima gave a small smile as she was still scared to say anything, Nandini move away calling the maid to clean the plates and dishes while Karan left to his room and Nandini move to the kitchen... Riddhima look at Armaan with a huge smile making Armaan smile too...
'Dekha, mujhse zyada toh yeh dono tumse pyar karte hai...' Armaan said...
'Ice cream...' Riddhima said...
'Kal jaenge hum...' Armaan said to see Riddhima pout...
'Nehi... Abhi, tumne promise kiya ta...' Riddhima said...
'Raat koh ice cream khaenge toh zukaam hojaenge...' Armaan said...
'Nehi... abhi...' Riddhima said standing up...
'Riddhima...' Armaan said but Riddhima cut him...
'No... no... no...' Riddhima said as tears form in her eyes...

Armaan knows if she started to cry, it would difficult to stop her so he agree to take her for ice cream... Soon Armaan and Riddhima were in Armaan's car as they left to get Riddhima's favorite ice cream... After an hour, they came back with a sleeping Riddhima as Armaan carried her all the way to her room...

Making Riddhima sleep in her room, Armaan left knowing she wouldn't wake up till morning... Nandini and Karan has already gone to bed so Armaan thought to do some work before sleeping as he couldn't go to work unless Riddhima be comfortable with Nandini...


MONTHS LATER


It's been months that Riddhima has come to live with Mallik's, her health has improve a lot with the care and love of Malliks... First few weeks, she was very much scared of everyone around her other than Armaan but slowly, she started to accept Nandini and Karan as they gave space and comfort to her be around the house...

Riddhima started to regain her sense which make her aware that she was no longer the small Riddhima but grown up one... Riddhima's health will be good until something happen which remind her about her parents but once she is remind of her parents she wouldn't be able to handle herself which lead her to become the little Riddhima who had live her life without any worry, sorrow or pain...

Riddhima would be like a child for a day or two before she be back on her normal health... As it keeps happening, Armaan has consult another doctor to know further about Riddhima's brain condition why it keeps making her go back to be a child...

So after talking to the doctor, Armaan get to know that her brain was too weak to handle any kind of stress which leads her to forget such news which breaks her heart to such intention that she can't her brain to accept the truth... Also she can't handle the fear of losing someone close which leads her brain stop accepting the truth and lead it back years ago when she don't have to worry about such things...

Doctor recommended to make Riddhima accept the truth or else her health wouldn't be any better unless she have control on her brain... Also try to make Riddhima face her fear and make her fight over it so she could live a fearless life ahead...

Armaan talk about the matter with Karan and Nandini, they didn't know how they would do it or just leave everything for destination but help Riddhima whenever she needs them... With the time, Riddhima soon started to accept the truth that her parents aren't any longer with them...

Riddhima has accepted Nandini and Karan as her parents as she started to live her life with them and specially with Armaan... Being friends with Armaan, it didn't take much time for Riddhima to adjust with them but Riddhima felt that something has change between them in a matter of few months after she had learn the truth about her health condition and her parents...


WEEKS LATER


Riddhima was in her room, looking outside the sun which was bidding by for the day as it was slowly setting down letting the moon take over... As Armaan and Karan hadn't come from work and Nandini resting in her room before the guys come, Riddhima was also sitting in her room thinking about her life till now from the day she has come to stay with Mallik's...

As Riddhima didn't remember when she has come, she ask Nandini about her arrival and why she didn't remember it... Not hurting her emotions, Nandini told her why they decide to bring Riddhima back to them and Nandini make sure that the news didn't effect her brain...

Realizing how she has miss some days of her life with the Mallik's after her parents left her, Riddhima ask Nandini what and how she had behave... First Nandini wasn't sure if she should tell her or not but when Riddhima blackmail her if she don't than she will leave the house, not having another option Nandini tell her but skipping the worst parts...

Also Nandini told her how she and other two man in the house love every moment they spend with her in which ever condition she was because it wasn't anything to be ashamed or feel guilty because it wasn't in her hand at the moment...

So after spending hours talking with Nandini, Riddhima was now back in her room thinking over it... Also she was thinking how difficult it must be for Armaan to handle her because she remember in childhood, how difficult she makes her parents to handle her than...
'Pata nehi kyun Armaan ne mujhe itni mushkil waqt mein sambhala... Sirf dosti ke naate ya kuch aur...' Riddhima was in deep thought as her eyes were fixed the view which was in front of her eyes...

True, Riddhima didn't have a clue how she had make things hard for them and specially Armaan as Nandini has tell her, she wouldn't let anyone be around her other than him... Riddhima couldn't help but keep thinking about Armaan why he spend all his free time with her when he could enjoy his own life with his friends and other girls...

Riddhima has started to feel something strong towards Armaan but she didn't want to let him know about it because no one knows when she would lost her sense and become the 8 or 9 year old Riddhima... Not only Armaan but Riddhima fear to let any guy near her because of this that she never go out unless she is with Armaan or the Mallik's...


MALLIK COMPANY


While Riddhima was lost thinking about Armaan, Armaan was also thinking about her... Armaan was happy that Riddhima health has improve a lot from last few months, however they need to be more careful and not let Riddhima stress her brain which lead her to loose her sense...

Armaan didn't find it a problem in either way because he just love being around Riddhima as much as he could... Armaan didn't know what was happening but from the day he saw Riddhima in hospital after ages of being away, he felt a new emotion developing in his heart for her...

Armaan thought it was because she was the only female friend of him but as slowly the months past, the emotions keeps getting stronger and stronger... True Armaan don't have any female friends but the day Riddhima came to live with the Mallik's, Armaan has been always with her and he didn't get time to spend with his friends...

Don't know why but Armaan mind was always occupied with Riddhima, if he isn't working than it would always think about Riddhima... Armaan was very much concern and protective about Riddhima from few months that he didn't want Riddhima to go anywhere without him or his parents...

Armaan knows, Riddhima wouldn't leave alone because she didn't like going out much now... Before he knows she wasn't like this but after her parents death, everything has change in her life... How much Armaan and his parents try to make her feel family, he knows somewhere in her heart, she still miss her parents and why not, they are the reason she came to this world and now she has lost them, that too both of them...

Armaan mind travel on the day that Riddhima gain her sense and break down when once again she was remember of the truth about her parents... Armaan was glad that he was with her that day, to see how broken she was and how it affected her brain that day, Armaan felt so helpless but handle thing strongly just the sake of Riddhima...


FLASHBACK


As like every other day after Riddhima has come to live with the Mallik's, Armaan went to see if she has waken up because if she didn't than he would wake her before he get ready for the work... It's been like two months now and Armaan has seen how much Riddhima health has improve that she has started to act a little mature than she used to do when she has come first with him...

So Armaan peeped inside the room to see her bed empty, Armaan was surprise to see this so he slowly move in looking around the room to find Riddhima standing near the window looking outside... Wondering how she has wake up without him waking her, he move further inside...
'Riddhima, tum aaj jaldi kaise ut gayi...' Armaan ask as her back was towards him...

Hearing Armaan voice, Riddhima turn around but seeing her face Armaan felt the ground vanished under his feet... Armaan couldn't move but root on the spot seeing the tears on her face and it was red due to crying... Seeing Armaan expression, Riddhima hide her face and cry out more...

Armaan felt his heart break in to several piece, he quickly move towards her taking her in his arms as he rub her back slowly letting her calm in his hold... Armaan was wondering what has happen suddenly but before questioning her, he first try to calm her and make her stop crying...
'Shhh, kuch nehi huva Riddhima... Sab tik hai, main hun na tumhari saath...' Armaan said kissing her forhead again and again as she cried in his arms...

Armaan let Riddhima cry and when he felt that Riddhima has stop, he move her away and remove her palms from her face... When Riddhima didn't protest and let Armaan move her hand, Armaan wipes her tears to see a small pout on her eyes and innocent back in her eyes which he didn't see from last few weeks because she was being the mature one...

Armaan keep looking at her expression as his mind went back to the past few weeks how she had give those exprression when she thinks she was the little Riddhima... Armaan felt his world stop for a second thinking how this Riddhima has come back when everything was going good two weeks before...
'Riddhima...' Armaan call her name...
'Dost...' Riddhima said sniffing as she try to control her tears...

Armaan got his answer when he heard her saying that name which she used to do when she first met with him before she come back with him to live in Mallik Mansion... Armaan was thinking what might have happen that she has change over night because she was back to normal and in a matter of one night again she was back where she has start the journey without her parents...

So much was going in his mind but his trace was broke feeling Riddhima palm on his cheek, Armaan look towards her waiting for her to speak but when she kept looking back him, Armaan couldn't understand what to do now...
'Riddhima tum...' Armaan couldn't speak as he felt he lost his voice suddenly...
'Dost, aap meri saath kyun nehi ti... Main kitni dar gayi ti, aapko pata hai...' Riddhima said like a small child...
'Woh main... Mujhe kaam ta, issiliye main baahar nikla ta kyunki tum so rahi ti...' Armaan said making an excuse...

Armaan felt so bad at the moment, he wanted to scream out loud but he was helpless in front of Riddhima... Asking her to get ready to go out for breakfast, Armaan move out as he was having difficult to control his tears which form in his eyes...

Once Armaan was out from the room, he let those tears fall on his cheek... Armaan didn't feel this bad before but he felt that he lost something very precious seeing Riddhima back to where they had start their journey... Armaan rest his back on the wall, as he stood there crying for sometimes...

When he felt little better, he clear his tears and promise himself that he wouldn't cry again but fight to make Riddhima better and come out from this condition... Knowing he has to tell his parents about it, Armaan left to meet his parents before he get ready to go breakfast with Riddhima before he leaves to work...

Two days past like this but this time, Riddhima wasn't in her worst condition because she didn't get scared of Karan or Nandini present like she used to do before or the first time she has come... Every single person was pampering her as much as they could and Riddhima was loving it...

After lunch as usual, Nandini ask Riddhima to rest as she has taken medicine... Making sure Riddhima was in deep slumber, Nandini move to her room to get fresh up and do some work before Riddhima wake up... Knowing Riddhima wouldn't wake before an hour or two, Nandini was relaxing when a maid came knocking hurriedly...

Nandini came out to see her scared face, she wondered what happen but her question was answer as she saw Riddhima sitting on the stairs, crying hiding her face... Nandini move towards her as no one dare to go near Riddhima seeing how badly she was crying...
'Riddhima, bacchi...' Nandini call her...

Riddhima move her hands away and next moment she was hugging Nandini making her shocked with Riddhima's sudden hug... Nandini care her back, trying to calm her down but she keeps crying... Nandini try to break the hug but Riddhima wasn't leaving her...

Nandini was feeling helpless not understand what has suddenly happen, it was that very moment Armaan enter the house as he couldn't come for lunch and it was his routine that for once to check Riddhima in lunch hour or after that whenever he get free from work for sometimes because after checking on her, Armaan would go back to work again...

Seeing the sight, Armaan was confused first why his mother and Riddhima was hugging but hearing Riddhima cry, Armaan got worried not knowing what has happen... Armaan quickly move towards them and seeing Armaan, Nandini feel relax knowing only he can handle a crying Riddhima, that too real bad...
'Kiya huva Mom, Riddhima itna ro kyun rahi hai...' Armaan asked...
'Pata nehi beta, kabse puch rahi hun kiya huva... Kuch nehi bola, bas ro rahi hai...' Nandini said...
'Riddhima...' Armaan call her letting her know about his present...

Riddhima stop crying hearing Armaan's voice, she came out from the hug and look towards Armaan... Like every other day, Armaan wait Riddhima to let herself in his arms but with her next move Armaan was surprise as it never happen before... Even Nandini was surprise with Riddhima actions as they kept looking towards Riddhima who run up the stairs, back to her room...

No one speak anything as the maids went back to their respective works the moment Armaan enter the house, before they were standing not far from Nandini and Riddhima thinking Nandini might need help...
'Armaan, jaana beta... Dekh kiya huva hai...' Nandini said...
'Mom, kiya huva hai... Itna kyun ro rahi hai woh...' Armaan asked...
'Pata nehi beta, main kamre mein ti... Usko solakar main fresh hone gayi aur tohda kaam kar rahi ti tab maid ne mujhe bhulane gayi... Main baahar aaya toh dekha Riddhima, stairs pe beit ke ro rahi ti...' Nandini said...

Armaan nodded when his mother finished telling him what happen in his absent... Understanding everything was normal the way he left in the morning, Armaan make his way towards Riddhima's room to see what has change in that short period of time when Nandini left her side...

Armaan stood at the door as he look inside to see Riddhima sitting near the bed, with her knees close to her chest as she hold something close to her heart... Armaan saw it was a photo but whose, he couldn't see as it was facing to Riddhima...

Not to disturb her as she was still badly crying, Armaan stood there for sometimes when he heard Riddhima saying something as she sit her eyes closed with tears falling from her eyelash which was closed... Seeing her face expression, Armaan could feel how much hurt she was and how she was trying to fight back with the situation...
'Kyun ma... Kyun papa... Kyun aap dono... Mujhe akele... Chodke chali gayi... Kyunnn...' Riddhima keep saying each and every word with so much pain...

Hearing Riddhima words, Armaan understood the situation... Riddhima was back to her sense, she has remember once again that she has lost her parents and it was breaking her once again to such intention that Armaan felt pain in his chest seeing her like this...

Not being able to stay away from her for another minute, Armaan quickly move inside and next moment he was sitting hugging Riddhima... Riddhima who felt Armaan strong arms around her, couldn't control herself and break down feeling the support in Armaan touch...
'Kyun Armaan... Kyun aisa huva... meri saath... Kyunnn... Ma... Papa... Chali gayi...' Riddhima said holding Armaan shirt while she hold the photo still in her other hand...
'Jaane wale koh hum kaise rokh sakte hai Riddhima...' Armaan said caring her back...

Armaan was glad that he came home to check Riddhima, he was having this uneasiness from morning but he didn't know why... Now he got the answer and he was glad that he decide to come and check on Riddhima personally...

Letting Riddhima cry, knowing it would make her feel better Armaan just sit holding her in his arms... After crying for god knows how many minutes, slowly Riddhima stop crying but she was still sobbing thinking about her parents... Armaan kiss her temple as if telling her, no matter what he is always there for her...


FLASHBACK END


As Armaan came back from the flashback, he realized how his mind and heart were always rotating around Riddhima all the time... Day or night, it was always thinking about Riddhima... When she wasn't with him or when she is with him, he didn't get bore thinking about this girl and never in his life, a girl came across his mind just the way Riddhima is occupied...

It didn't take much times Armaan to understand what it means but he was scared, scared that how Riddhima would react to know about this... Armaan had seen how Riddhima was keeping distance between them from last few weeks...

Armaan felt that Riddhima has started to have feelings for him as well but something was bothering her... Several times, Armaan came to this conclusion that it must be due to her condition which keeps going back to fort changing her to little Riddhima...

It didn't bother Armaan because 'Riddhima' is the one he has fallen in love... Little one or mature one, only which matters to him was it would be either way his 'Riddhima' because he can't think of Riddhima going away from his life now...

So Armaan waiting for the perfect time to confess his feelings to her as he very well know only she could be able to live her life normally with love and care... His parents were giving enough love to her that she deserve to get from a mother and father but, still that special love was missing in her life which may change her life for a better...

Even the doctor has mention about it because she needs someone close to her all the time, someone who would make her believe that how much she means to him... A partner, a husband who would love her deeply and take care of her when she feel low...

Armaan was willing to be in that place but with Riddhima acceptation because she has all the right to choose who she wants to spend rest of her life with so no one would, not even Armaan would put pressure on her to accept him in her life if she don't want him in her life...

For that, Armaan was waiting because he don't want to give stress to Riddhima or any kind of shocked which might affect her brain... How badly Armaan want her in his life, he was controlling because he don't want to hurry up things which might scared Riddhima as it all would be new to her just like for him...

So leaving everything to god and always being ready to grab the chance when it comes on his way to let Riddhima knows how much he loves her and need her in his life, Armaan was waiting for that particular moment hoping their wait would come to an end soon...


MONTHS LATER


In these months, Riddhima has complete her studies and was now working as she took her father company responsibility in her hands... As Nandini or Karan don't want Riddhima to leave them, Karan help Riddhima in shifting her father business back to the country while other branches would be handle by loyal people who was hired long ago and working in the company for years...

Even Armaan help Riddhima in business, with Armaan and Karan helps Riddhima easily shift the business and was now taking the responsible of the company because it was the only thing which was left to her by her parents...

Knowing Nandini wouldn't let her leave the house, Riddhima has sell the house where she used to live with her parents as it was no need to keep it without using it when a family can start their life making memories in that house...

Also in these months, Armaan has realized how Riddhima has stop talking him like she used to do before... Only if its related to work only Riddhima would come to him or talk him... Riddhima was keeping herself busy in work and Armaan well very understood why she was doing this but he didn't say anything...

As soon it was going to be one year to Riddhima's parent death, Nandini was arranging a puja... Riddhima was aware of it but she wouldn't help Nandini due to work, so Nandini took the responsibility knowing it would be very difficult for Riddhima to arrange things for such function when it still hurts her to believe her parents are no longer with her...


DEATH ANNIVERSARY OF RIDDHIMA'S PARENTS


Everyone was sitting in the hall as the Pandjit did the Puja, Riddhima was sitting on his left side while Nandini, Karan and Armaan sit just behind her... Few guests were invited by Nandini and Karan who knows Riddhima's parent as they had come to offer prayer to the couple and bless Riddhima...

When the puja was complete, Karan went to see of the Pandit while others pray for the couple... After prayer, one by one guests left but after giving bless to Riddhima who just sit in front of her parents picture... Riddhima didn't look away from their picture or neither said a word...

Armaan who was seeing off the guests with his father, was looking towards Riddhima than and now... Armaan was closely watching her every single move from morning as the first thing he saw was her red bloodshot eyes with dark shades under it which announce, she has cried all night and didn't sleep a wink...

Also when she joins them, she didn't utter a single word till now as she just keep looking at her parent's picture... Neither she let a single tear fall from her eyes after she has come out from her room... Riddhima has become all quiet and it was killing Armaan inside to see how she was holding the pain inside...

When finally all the guests left, Karan and Armaan move inside with Nandini who joins them to see the last guest.. They move to Riddhima and Nandini kept her hand on Riddhima head, still Riddhima didn't look away from her parents picture...
'Aap log change karlo, main breakfast lagwati hun... Riddhima, bacchi...' Nandini said as she called Riddhima to make sure if she has heard it or not...

Without saying anything, Riddhima stood up and left to her room... Karan and Nandini watch her going like a lifeless person as Armaan move behind her, even he was watching Riddhima every step closely... When Riddhima enter her room and shut the door behind her, Armaan went to his room to change...

After sometimes, everyone was sitting near the dinning table other than Riddhima... They were waiting for her to join them but when she didn't come for another fifteen minutes Nandini left to check on her to see why she wasn't coming downstairs...

When Nandini came back with a sad face, Karan question her as Armaan just wait for his mother to reply his father question... Seeing tears in his mother's eyes, Armaan understood it was related to Riddhima... How much it hurts him to see Riddhima in pain, even his parents can't see her in pain...
'Woh office ke liye tayyar ho rahi hai, khud koh kaam mein busy rakhna chahti hai woh taaki yeh baat usko andari andari takleef na de...' Nandini said...
'Aise toh woh bimar hojaenge, jabse business sambhalne lagi hai woh apni dyan rakhna bhul gayi hai... Itni mehnat karti hai, usko apni fikar hi nehi hai...' Karan said...
'Pata nehi aur kitni din lagegi bacchi koh khud koh sambhalne mein...' Nandini said finally when the tears fall from her eyes...

Armaan sit listening to his parents and he felt really bad to see how everyone was sad because of Riddhima being sad in her life... Thinking what he should do now, to give happiness and make Riddhima try to live her life happily with smile on her face, Armaan move leaving his breakfast...
'Armaan...' Nandini call him seeing he leaving without having breakfast...
'Jaane do usse Nandini, bas wohi sambhal sakte hai Riddhima koh...' Karan said...

Karan and Nandini has seen the change behavior of their son towards Riddhima... How he had been always protective and care towards Riddhima from the day she as enter their house being a member in their family... The love which was growing in his heart wasn't hidden from them as it was clearly visible in his eyes whenever he looks towards Riddhima...

Even they has seen how both were and mostly Riddhima avoiding being around Armaan most... They understood this much that, they were fighting for their feelings for some reason but they wish, them to realized and decide what is the best for them...


RIDDHIMA'S ROOM


As soon as she enter the room, she let her tears fall from her eye as she was controlling it from the time she has left her room to join others in the puja... Her heart was crying but only she could hear and feel it... The pain was too much for her to handle so she thought to keep herself busy with work like she was doing from last few weeks and months...

So wiping her tears, Riddhima got ready for work... Riddhima knows she wouldn't be able to control herself is she stay in the house so she wants to leave as soon as she could and keep herself busy in work... After getting ready, Riddhima was checking some mails and files before she leaves...

It was than Riddhima heard a faint knock and she gave permission to enter whoever was outside... Riddhima knows someone would come to call her for breakfast as she was taking time but she didn't feel to have anything at this moment...
'Bacchi...' Nandini call her as she enter the room but stop seeing Riddhima reading a file...
'Ji Aunty...' Riddhima said still not looking away from the file..
'Aap aajke din bhi office jaa rhe ho...???' Nandini asked...
'Ek bohot important kaam hai aunty, mujhe jaana hoga...' Riddhima said as she try to concentrate on the file as she was a very bad liar...
'Nasta karlo beti...' Nandini said very well knowing what her answer would be...
'Main baad mein kuch khalungi aunty...' Riddhima said as she try to control her shaking voice feeling the love and care in Nandini voice...

Riddhima knows how much each and every person in the house loves her but still, she was hurting them by her behavior... She had been avoiding them, specially Armaan as she don't want to get too closed to them knowing it would hurt if one day she has to leave or they leave her...

When Riddhima didn't even look towards her, Nandini left knowing Riddhima wouldn't agree to eat anything when she don't want to... Riddhima look towards the door when it got closed behind Nandini, she couldn't help but let fresh tears fall from her eyes...
'I m sorry aunty, main aap log koh itna dukh de rahi hun lekin main kiya karti... Dukh ki alawa meri paas kissi koh dene ke liye kuch bhi nehi hai...' Riddhima said closing her eyes as she hold her heart feeling the pain...

Riddhima sit on the bed as she silently cry for hurting the people who is her family now but missing her parents, she couldn't help other than keeping herself away from them so it wouldn't hurt them more... Riddhima stop crying when the door again open she look towards it to see Armaan standing there...

Not to let Armaan see her tears, Riddhima quickly wipes her tears but Armaan has already seen her tears... Not wanting to look at Armaan, Riddhima stood up taking the file and move to the study table collect other files and her laptop before leaving...

Armaan who stood watching her move close the door and lock it so no one can come inside unless he is done talking with Riddhima... Armaan was determine to get some answers from her today and make her take some decision about her life...

Hearing the lock, Riddhima look around but didn't dare to look straight in to Armaan eyes... Just one look at Armaan face, Riddhima understood that he wouldn't let her go easily today... She had been running away from him last few months but it seems, today Armaan would get all his answers from her...
'Office kyun jaa rahe ho...' Armaan asked...
'Kaam hai mujhe...' Riddhima said softly...
'Aisa kiya kaam hai jo aaj hi karna zaruri hai...???' Armaan asked...
'Please Armaan, zaruri nehi hote toh main nehi jaati...' Riddhima said...
'Jhut...' Armaan said...

Riddhima look towards Armaan but again turn her face away not being able to look at him... Armaan move forwards and stood in front of her as he look straight at her face... Seeing how Riddhima was avoiding any eye contact, Armaan knows she was afraid of something or maybe afraid of her feelings for him...
'Look at me Riddhima...' Armaan said...

Riddhima look towards him but again she move her eyes away lowering it, that was it for Armaan... He move close to her and hold her face in his palms making her look towards him... Riddhima shut her eyes tight being scared knowing Armaan would read what's in her heart through her eyes...
'Kyun khud koh itni takleef de rahe ho, kyun sabko itna takleef de rahe ho Riddhima...' Armaan asked softly...

Still Riddhima didn't speak a word as she stood like that, tears were forming in her closed eyes as she felt the love in Armaan touch and concern in his voice as he felt the pain which she was going through... Riddhima knows, if she is hurt, it hurts him too but still she can't do anything to reduce that pain she is giving to him...
'Koi kaam nehi hai tumhe Riddhima, haina...' Armaan asked again...

Armaan knows his touch would melt her soon, he wants to take all her pain away and let the happiness in her life again and for that, he needs to make her speak to him... Open up her heart and let him in so he could give the love she deserve...
'Tum kyun hum sabko khud se dur kar rahe ho Riddhima, kyun humein tumhare paas aane nehi de rahi... Jo bhi tumhare saath huva, hum woh badhal nehi sakte Riddhima lekin hum tumhe khush dekhna chahti hai... Hum tumhe aise tut te huve nehi dekh sakte, jitni takleef tumhe hoti hai utna takleef humein bhi ho rahi hai tumhe aise dekh ke... Aur mujhe, usse kahin zyada takleef hote hai tumhe aise bikarte huve dekhke...
Main tumhari har dukh khushi mein badhal na chahta hun Riddhima... Tumhari har takleef dur karna chahti hun, tumhari aansu pochna chahta hun aur kabhi woh aansu dubara tumhari aankhomein dekhna nehi chahte...' Armaan said touching his forehead against her's as he also closed his eyes...
'Nehi Armaan...' Riddhima said as she couldn't bear his words longer...

Today Armaan told her how deep is his love for her, what if he hasn't said the three words... All these words were much more stronger than those three words, too meaningful that it reach deep down Riddhima heart making her believe no one can love her the way he does but...

Next moment her brain scold her for getting weak in front of him, letting him take over her heart defeating her brain which was trying to hold her back getting hurt again... Which keep reminding her how much it hurts if someone close to your heart leave you...

Armaan open his eyes hearing Riddhima words, unknown to him tears were falling from his eyes too as he confess how much he needs to be with her... Hoping that she would melt down and let herself open but once again, she was shutting him out...
'Riddhima...' Armaan call her...
'Nehi Armaan, yeh sahi nehi hai...' Riddhima said opening her eyes as she move his hand away from her face...
'Kyun...' Armaan asked...
'Har kyunki jawab nehi hote Armaan...' Riddhima said...
'Lekin har sawal ka jawab toh hota hai aur yeh kyun sahi nehi hai...' Armaan asked...
'Please Armaan, hum is baare mein baat na kare toh accha hoga...' Riddhima said moving away...

Armaan didn't let Riddhima move away because he wants answers, he wants to know what is stopping Riddhima from opening her heart to him or any other person... Why she wants to be alone and live alone when so many people are there to love her and want her happy, smiling...
'Nehi Riddhima, aaj tumhe batana hoga mujhe kiya baat hai jo tum aise hum sabko khud se dur kar rahe ho... Aaj tum aise chup nehi rehsakte Riddhima, tumhe batanaya hoga kyun tum aise behave kar rahe ho... Aahir kyun Riddhima, itna change kyun... Kiya kissi koh hak nehi hai tumse pyar kare, tumse mohabbat kare...' Armaan asked...
'Sabko pyar karne ka hak hai Armaan, mohabbat karne ka hak hai lekin... Mujhse mohabbat karne ka hak nehi hai, nehi hai hak...' Riddhima said finally breaking down...
'Kyun...' Armaan asked...
'Kyunki I don't deserve it Armaan... I don't deserve anyone to love me... Jis ladki ki mental condition kab kharab hojae, woh kaise kissi koh khudse mohabbat karne de sakte hai...' Riddhima said...
'Riddhima tum...' Armaan was cut by Riddhima...
'Nehi Armaan, no guy deserve to love a girl like me, not even you...' Riddhima said...
'Tum yeh hak nehi cheen sakti Riddhima...' Armaan said...
'Main yeh hak de bhi nehi sakte Armaan, kyunki mere paas toh dukh ki alawa kuch nehi hai dene koh... Aur main yeh jaante huve, kissi ki life kyun kharab karun jab mujhe pata nehi chalega main kab apni hosh kho beitun...' Riddhima said...
'Mujhe isse koi fark nehi padta Riddhima, mujhe sirf tum chahiyeh...' Armaan said...
'Nehi Armaan, tumhe mujhse accha ladki milenge...' Riddhima said...
'Lekin mujhe tumhare siwa koi nehi chahiyeh...' Armaan said moving close to her...
'Tum kyun nehi samajh rahe ho Armaan, main mentally stable nehi hun... Kab main bacchi banjaae, koi nehi bata sakte...' Riddhima said...
'Mujhe isbaat se koi fark nehi padta Riddhima, tum bacchi rahe ya mature...' Armaan said...
'Lekin mujhe fark padta hai Armaan, main nehi chahti main kabhi yeh bhulun ki...' Riddhima stop realizing what she was going to let out...

Armaan who was looking at her face, trying to read every single word in her heart got a ray of hope that Riddhima do have feelings for him but due to her health condition, she was holding herself back... Armaan knows he had to try for some more than Riddhima wouldn't hold herself longer...
'Ki...???' Armaan asked...
'Kuch nehi, tum bhuljao mujhe...' Riddhima said turning her back...
'Riddhima, tum mere jhaga hote toh kiya tum bhi mujhe bhuljaenge...???' Armaan asked...

Riddhima close her eyes as she can't even think of forgetting him, not now, not ever... Still after knowing how much he loves her she was asking him to forget her, she wouldn't be ever forget him nor see him with another girl...
'Jawab doh Riddhima, kiya tum mujhe bhuljaaenge... Chalo mere jhaga na sahi, tum khud apni jhaga hokar mujhe bhula paaenge Riddhima...???' Armaan asked...

When Riddhima didn't reply, small smile form in Armaan lips very well knowing it was impossible for her to speak the truth or lie...  Armaan make her turn around, Riddhima just stood with her eyes closed knowing she couldn't answer his question...
'Jab tum khud mujhe bhul nehi paaenge, toh tum yeh kaise soch sakte ho main tumhe bhuljaun... Mujhe tumhaare haalat pe KOI SHIKWA NEHI, SIRF MOHABBAT hai...' Armaan said...

When those words leave from Armaan, Riddhima open her eyes as it met with his gorgeous orbs which shows unconditional love for her... Tears started to fall from Riddhima eyes when she realized how much love Armaan has for her in his heart...

Armaan sucks Riddhima tears, Riddhima close her eyes feeling Armaan hot lips on her cheeks as he drink her tears off... Riddhima hands automatically move on Armaan's shirt as her fist got hold on it... Only where she wants to be this moment was in his arms...
'Der saara mohabbat hai...' Armaan whisper as he move a little away and look at her face...

Riddhima just stood like that with her eyes close as a small smile form in her lips hearing those words... Smile form in Armaan lips too seeing that smile on her lips after months... Knowing she needs to believe this was truly happening, Armaan just hugs her hiding her from the world...

Riddhima also hugs him back, hiding her face on his neck... For the first time in months, Riddhima felt she got her life back and it was only because of Armaan... She had been torturing her by keeping herself away from Armaan, specially when she knows the only place she feel safe was in his arms...

Today she realized, how much she miss him... His touch, his hugs, his kisses on her forehead... Everything was a bless but due to her health condition, she keeps herself away from all that and make him suffer too with her... The way Armaan was holding her now, Riddhima felt how he must be feeling that his life depend on her...

When Armaan was satisfied knowing he has prove his point why he needs her in his life, Armaan break the hug looking at Riddhima face... Riddhima also look him but lower her eyelash feeling his strong gaze which was filled with only love...
'Kiya tumhein mere mohabbat se shikwa hai...' Armaan asked caring her cheek softly...

Riddhima shake her head side to side making Armaan smile as she still kept her eyes down... When Armaan care her cheek, Armaan saw the color change as it turn to a pinkish shade... Armaan put his finger on her chin and make her look towards him as he let his eyes drown in her beautiful orbs...
'Mohabbat hai...???' Armaan asked softly moving his face close to her...
'Beyhadd...' Riddhima whisper as she felt his hot breath on her lips...

Smile form in their lips as they finally confess their love to each other, to show much love he has in his heart for her Armaan seal her lips in to a promising kiss as if he wants to tell her he has seal her life with his... Riddhima smile to the kiss as she respond to their first kiss as she felt she was in heaven feeling the unconditional love Armaan has for her...

It was the beginning of their journey as lover, for years they were friends but that one incident bring them close and make them fall deeply in love to such intention that Armaan wasn't going to let go off her in any condition... Riddhima also named her life as his knowing the way Armaan take care of her, love her, no other man can do it...

With Armaan deep unconditional love, Riddhima over come with her fear and move on her life with Armaan by her side... Karan and Nandini was happy to have Riddhima forever in their life as they bless both of them who soon tied the knot and they live happily, fighting for each other happiness in hard situation, they face the problems together in rest of their life...
