PART 2 : Nothing Can Stop Me, From Loving You(An AR TS )


Silent was around the house as the only voice which was heard was Riddhima sobbing as she was still hugging her mother, not having the courage to look towards Armaan knowing how badly he would be broken to know why she hide such a big thing from him...

Neither of them speak as Shaanta bhen also stood in a distance to see the happening because she has never seen Riddhima and Padma crying so badly, but hearing their talks, she understood that it was Armaan who Riddhima loves so much that she decide to leave him for his sake, to give him a better life without someone like her who is paralyzed...


So she kept quiet knowing she shouldn't disturb them, she quietly left from the place letting them handle the situation knowing Padma ma'am will be there to take control over the matter if things go out of hand... She was amazed to see a guy like Armaan was so much crazy for Riddhima, who is simple yet beautiful...

While Padma control her emotions knowing she is the one who had to handle the two broken lovers, she try to pull Riddhima back to the sofa but she wasn't able to do it alone... Seeing Padma trying to put Riddhima back on the sofa, Armaan move ahead making her stop...
'Aunty...' Armaan softly call her name...

Padma understood what Armaan wants to do, so she gave him space to take Riddhima in his arms before letting her sit back on the sofa comfortably with cushion on her back... Riddhima wasn't looking towards Armaan but she could feel Armaan gaze fixed on her face...
'Tum dono baat karo, main aati hun...' Padma said as she gave the first aid box to Riddhima which was kept on the table as Shaanta bhen left giving them privacy...

When Padma left, Armaan also stood up to leave as he wants time to clear things in his head... Not because he don't want to be with her, because he still can't believe that Riddhima think he would leave her knowing the truth of her being paralyzed...
'Armaan...' Riddhima stop him holding his unharmed hand...

Armaan didn't say a word, he stop but didn't move... Riddhima pull him a little making him sit next to her, Riddhima look at his face and seeing his lost expression, she knows Armaan was hurt... Hurt that she hide something big from him which is related to her... Hurt that she thought he wouldn't want to be with someone like her who can't move or do anything without anyone help...

Knowing more questions as to be answered, Riddhima started to clean his hand making Armaan hissed... Riddhima blow air as she continue cleaning it while Armaan just kept staring at her face not understanding what to believe the Riddhima who is sitting in front of him or the one who was saying the harsh words to hurt him to hide the truth about her health condition...

Riddhima was having difficult to control her heart as it was racing fast seeing Armaan strong gaze not leaving her face... Somehow, Riddhima did his dressing and bandage it nicely so it wouldn't get infect... When she was done, she look towards him but lower her gaze not being able to look in his eyes...
'Kyun...???' Armaan asked not being able to hold himself...
'Kyunki tum mare jaise ladki koh deserve nehi karte Armaan...' Riddhima said not looking at his eyes...
'Kyun...???' Armaan again asked...
'Kyunki main woh Basket nehi hun jo tumne pyar kiya... Main woh basket nehi hun, jo ab shayad tumhare har sapna pura kar sakhu...' Riddhima said as fresh tears form in her eyes...
'Kyun...???' Armaan asked...
'You deserve much better Armaan, you don't deserve a girl who is paralyzed and might have no hope that she can ever walk...' Riddhima said...
'Main tumhari jhaga hota toh tum kiya karti Basket...' Armaan asked...

Riddhima knows Armaan would ask this question which she has no answer, it was true that she wouldn't ever let him go but she just can't let him spoil his whole life taking care of her... When she knows, Armaan has dreams which he wants to fulfilled with his life partner which would give him happiness which he can't get in his childhood...

When Riddhima didn't answer him, Armaan put his finger under her chin making her look towards him... Riddhima shiver feeling his touch, she closed her eyes being scared to look at his eyes knowing he could read her heart through it...
'Mujhe jawab doh Basket...' Armaan said softly...
'Please Armaan, yehi tik hoga hum dono ke liye ki hum alag hojae... Tum apne life mein aage bado, aise ladki ke saath shaadi karo jo tumhare woh har khuwab koh pura kar sake...' Riddhima said still not opening her eyes...
'Ek baar mere aankhon mein dekh ke kaho yeh baat Basket, taaki mere dil samajh jaae tum sach mein yehi chahte ho...' Armaan said...

Riddhima open her eyes slowly as tears swim in her gorgeous eyes, Armaan badly wanted to clear them and take her pain away but was helpless because Riddhima wasn't ready to let him back in her life... Riddhima was willing to do anything that Armaan believe, she wants him to move on leaving her...
'Shaadi karlo Armaan, apne life mein aage bado...' Riddhima whisper softly...
'Tik hai Basket, tum yehi chahte hai toh tik hai... Tumhare liye itna toh kar sakta hun, kyunki tumhare liye marna bhi mujhe pasand hai...' Armaan said standing up knowing Riddhima wouldn't agree to let him in her life...
'Armaan...' Riddhima whisper his name when he easily agree to her...
'Nehi basket, ab tum mujhe nehi rokh sakte... You want me to marry na, ab yehi hoga... I promise you, main tumhare aankhon ke saamne tumhare yeh wish pura karunga...' Armaan said looking at her...

Riddhima just sit helplessly as it break her heart to several pieces hearing Armaan is willing to marry and move on in his life... Armaan knows, how much pain he was in even Riddhima was going through the same but she is too stubborn to let him back in her life thinking she didn't deserve to be in his life...

Just looking at Riddhima for the last time, Armaan left without saying another word... Padma who has come with food for Armaan seeing him after months, thought to feed him food cooked by her heard the conversation of them... Seeing Armaan left agreeing to what Riddhima said, she felt bad that Riddhima wasn't ready to let him back in her life...

When Armaan left, Riddhima broke down once again as she cried loudly... Padma was helpless because she knows her daughter was badly broken from inside but she would never agree to let someone sacrificed their happiness to be with her when she don't know what her future would be like being a patient...


THREE DAYS LATER


Armaan walk in to the locker room to see Atul, Nikki and Muskaan already waiting for him, he left suddenly without informing than but he make sure to inform Dr. Kriti because he don't want to get scold by his senior doctor for being unprofessional towards his work...

As Armaan has return back the following night, he call Atul informing that he wants to meet them before the duty so he could tell them why he had left and where he had gone knowing they would have questions ready for him when he go in front of them...

When they saw Armaan, it was Atul who move hurriedly towards him taking him to a rib crashing hug which Armaan return by patting his back softly... Nikki and Muskaan also stood just a distance for their turn as they had miss their friend a lot in this short period of time...
'Kaha gaya ta tu mera bhai, aisa koi karta hai kiya... Apne Champ koh chod kar kyun chala gaya tu..' Atul asked being emotional...

Already he was very much broken when the Gupta sister's left just few hours after the incident took place in the hospital which is like their second house... They still can't believe that so much has changed after that, no one smile or laugh after that day as if someone has snatch their laughter in that incident which somehow is true...
'I am sorry Champ, lekin mera jaana zaruri ta... Maine kaha ta tujhe, main apne Basket koh dhund nikalunga...' Armaan said...
'Riddhima...??? Kaha hai woh...' Nikki ask stepping forward looking behind Armaan...
'Tumhe kaise pata chala woh kaha hai...???' Muskaan asked as she also stood by Nikki side...
'Itni din humein pata nehi chala, phir tumhe kaise pata chala...???' Atul asked breaking the hug and facing Armaan...

Arman closed his eyes as the moment flash in front of his eyes and her words echo in his ears... He left a deep breath, sighing as he knows they deserve to know about every single details about what happen in last three days... Armaan didn't even inform them that Rahul call and it was who gave the whereabouts of Riddhima so he started to narrate what happen from the day he got Rahul call till he return back the previous night...

Yes, Rahul had met Anjali in London Hopistal where she was working now... Like every other person in their gang, Rahul didn't get a clue where the Gupta's has gone but it was a coincidence that Anjali was transfer to the same hospital where Rahul was working...

Rahul didn't know till than Riddhima was with her because he thought after whatever happen which wasn't hide to the world because Sanjeevani is a famous hospital in India, Anjali decide to transfer out from the country because it would be very hard for her to complete her internship being in the hospital where she has almost lost her sister...

Rahul try to ask Anjali several times but Anjali was always very good in hiding emotion which didn't let him suspense for a second that all the Gupta ladies were in the same country... From Atul who was in touch with Rahul, he got to know that Riddhima left Armaan leaving a letter to him because she thinks she no more deserve to be in his life...

Atul didn't tell the real reason to him because Riddhima has given her swear on each and every person who witnessed the scene after Riddhima gain conscious and she also ask them not to speak about it to anyone, not to Armaan as well...

Knowing how broken Armaan would be but their friends are there to take care of him, from that day Rahul started to get information about the Gupta's... It took him 3 months to find out that the Gupta's was staying in London with Anjali, also another month that why Riddhima might have left Armaan...

So as soon as Rahul got every information, he call Armaan because he can understand how it feels to be away from the person you love most... Armaan has always help him in every situation so he had become his good friend, so when it was his time to help his friend, Rahul did what a friend would do for the other friend by giving information about Riddhima...

As he was so desperate to meet his basket, he took the first flight and reach London where Rahul received him... Armaan waited to go directly to meet Riddhima but as it was late, he wait till the following day... He told every details what happen when he met her, their conversation and finally he got to know the real reason...
'How could you also hide such a big thing from me guys...' Armaan said finally when he finished telling them now he is aware of full truth...
'Ridzy ne kasam dekhe humein chup karwaya...' Atul said...
'Champ, tu apne bhai koh jaanta haina... Basket toh kuch bhi bakwaas sochti rehti hai, lekin tum log jaante haina hum dono ek dusre ke bina nehi reh sakte...' Armaan said as tears were falling from his eyes continuously...
'Phir waapas kyun aaya tum...' Nikki asked...
'Kyunki basket chaahti hai main shaadi karlun, apne life mein move on kare...' Armaan said...
'Aur tumne maanliya hero...???' Muskaan asked...
'Bas itna hi jaante ho ab tum log apne dost koh...???' Armaan asked being hurt as they think he left her knowing the truth...
'Phir kyun uske bina waapas aaya...???' Nikki asked...
'Kyunki usse mana ne se pehle mujhe kissi aur se baat karna hai...' Armaan said...
'Dr. Shashank...???' Atul asked...
'Haan, kyunki Basket apne papa ke hilaaf jaakar koi bhi rishta mere saath rakhne ke liye nehi maanenge...'Armaan said...
'Lekin woh toh tumse bohot naraz hai...' Muskaan said...
'Aur tumhare shakal tak nehi dekhna chahte...' Nikki said...
'Lekin apne beti ke khushi ke liye usse mujhe baat karna hoga, mera shakal bhi dekhna padega...' Armaan said...
'Mere bhai, lekin tumne toh kaha tum Ridzy ke baat koh maanke waapas aaya hai...' Atul asked...
'Haan...' Armaan said...
'Toh tum shaadi karenge...???' Nikki asked...
'Haan...' Armaan said...
'Ridzy koh bhul paenge tum...???' Muskaan asked...
'Nehi...' Armaan said...
'Phir kissi aur se shaadi karke, usk ladki ki zindagi kyun barbaad kare...' Atul asked...
'Main kissi aur se nehi, Basket se hi shaadi karunga...' Armaan said...
'Lekin woh toh chaahti hai tum shaadi karo...' Nikki said...
'Haan toh shaadi toh karunga, lekin Basket se... Usne yeh nehi kaha, kissi aur se shaadi karo... Issiliye main uske baat maanne aaya hun nehi toh tum log koh lagta hai main usse itni aasaani se chodke aaunga...???'Armaan asked...
'Yeh toh tik hai hero, lekin tum Dr. Shashank se baat kaise karenge...???' Muskaan asked...
'Jaise main hamesha karta hun...' Armaan said...
'Matlab...???' Nikki asked...

Armaan kept looking towards them for sometimes and then tell them what he was thinking to do... Armaan knows Shashank wouldn't like to create a scene in the hospital so he decide to confront him when he is in home... Also Armaan knows, he would be alone with Nani who had been in Lonavla when the Gupta's left the country...


EVENING,
GUPTA HOUSE


Nani was serving Shashank who just sit staring at the plate as he was in deep thought, when he didn't start to eat Nani understood that what he must be thinking... It has been more than a week that he has come but they didn't get much time to talk...

After the incident, not being able to travel for long distance she stay back as other left with Riddhima... Being alone in the house, she left to Lonavla so she wouldn't have to stay alone in the house... Now she has come back and she wasn't happy the fact that Riddhima decide to leave Armaan who loves her unconditionally...
'Itna sochne ka kiya matlab, jab baap bhi beti jaise sochte ho...' Nani said breaking his trace...
'Maltab...???' Shashank asked looking towards Nani...
'Shashank, kiya tumhe lagta hai jo bhi huva woh sabke zimmadaar Armaan hai...' Nani asked...
'Ma please, main uske baare mein koi baat nehi karna chahte...' Shashank said looking at the plate...
'Baat na karne se tum sach se bhaag nehi sakte Shashank... Riddhima toh bohot bholi hai, lekin tum toh samajhdaar hain... Armaan Riddhima se kitna pyar karta hai, usne Riddhima ke pyar ke liye tumhe manane ke liye kiya kuch nehi kiya...' Nani said...
'Ma, Riddhima khud nehi chaahte woh Armaan ke saath rahe...' Shashank said...
'Aur tumne yeh baat maanli, apne beti ki dil mein chupe huve dard koh nehi pehchaana tumne...???' Nani asked...
'Ma, yeh baat sach hai main Armaan koh pasand nehi karta hun... Apne beti ke liye maine Armaan koh accept kiya kyunki uski khushi Armaan mein hai... Lekin ab jab woh khud nehi chaahte Armaan uske zindagi mein rahe toh main kiya kar sakta hun...' Shashank said...
'Sach kaha, tum kiya kar sakte hai.. Tum toh uski sagi baap nehi hai...' Nani said...
'Ma...' Shashank said in a stern voice...
'Kyun...??? Bura laga yeh sunke...??? Sagi baap hota toh uske dard samajhte tum Shashank, aise usse apne pyaar se dur jaane nehi dete... Main apne bacche koh jaanti hun woh kitni buri tarah tuta huva hoga ab tak... Har din uske liye ek nayi maut se kam nehi hoga yeh sochke, uske apne pyar ke liye usse khudse dur kiya...'Nani said...
'Riddhima usse itna pyar karte toh kyun chali gayi ma...' Shashank asked...
'Kyunki woh khud koh yeh qaabil nehi samajhte woh Armaan ke liye sahi hai... Armaan ne zindagi mein bachpan se bohot kuch saha hai, aur Riddhima... Woh bacchi itna pyar karti hai usse, woh aur dard nehi dena chahti Armaan koh kyunki woh jaante hai... Usko is haalat mein dekh ke, Armaan koh kitna takleef hoga... Kitna dard milega yeh soch ke kahin na kahin in sabka zimmedaar woh khud hai...
Issiliyeh nehi Riddhima ne usse milne us din hospital gaye balki isliyeh, jab uske paas moka ta nikalne ka lekin woh apne pyaar ke liye rukhi ti... Koi nehi jaanti ti uswaqt, kiya hoga lekin jo bhi huva uske baad sirf Riddhima ki nehi, Armaan ka zindagi bhi badhal gaya...
Tumne apne beti koh maut ke saamne dekha toh, Armaan bhi apne pyar koh maut ke saamne khadi dekha ta Shashank... Aur tum yeh baat kaise bhul sakte ho, pyar se dur hote toh kitna takleef hota hai... Jis din tumne Smriti koh khoya, kiya tum woh din bhul gaye...' Nani asked...

Shashank who was listening Nani, felt his heart stop for a second being remind of his first wife... His wife of his eldest daughter, how can he ever forget that because of Smriti, he got two daughters who is the beat of his heart and reason for him to live...

Today Nani has open a wound that Shashank has forgotten after having Padma in his life, if he married her than the reason was that he want Riddhima to be happy and Anjali too because they love Padma just they love Smriti... Shashank knows, Padma has make her own place in their heart and she would never want to take Smriti place in their life...

Seeing Shashank lost expression and emotions playing on his face, Nani knew that she has touch the worst day of his life but she didn't feel guilty about it because she wants him to understand whatever Riddhima was doing it was because her love for Armaan which is very much deep and strong...

Nani let Shashank think about the situation Riddhima was going through as she waited for him to finished the dinner... Seeing he wasn't touching the food, neither she eat as she could hardly eat from that day thinking how much hurt, pain and broken her family is just because of an unexpected incident take place in their life...

As they just sit staring the food, their trace was broke hearing the door bell... Having a chance to move away from the dinning area, Nani left to see who has come at this time of the night... After that day, no one visit them and also not having anyone else in the house, Nani also had left leaving the house empty so they don't know in their absent if anyone visit or not...

So wondering who it might be, Nani open the door to get shocked to see Armaan standing with his friends... Seeing him after months, Nani couldn't help but pull him in her arms, caring his hair and back lovingly... Armaan also hugs her as he enjoy the love from Nani, which he has missed from months...
'Kaisa hai mera baccha...' Nani asked looking at him breaking the hug...
'Aapke poti ke bina kaisa ho sakta hun Nani...' Armaan said having tears in his eyes...
'Arey, aise dukhi nehi hote bacche... Aur yaha kyun khade ho sab, andar aajao...' Nani said giving space them to move inside...
'Humein laga aapko hum dikhenge nehi...' Atul said...
'Aisa kyun bol rahe ho...' Nani asked...
'Sahi toh bola Atul ne Nani, aap toh apne favorite ladke koh dekh ke humein andekha kardete ho...' Muskaan said...
'Aisa kabhi nehi hoga, kyunki tum sab mere liye utna hi pyaare ho jitna Anjali aur Riddhima...' Nani said leading them to the hall...
'Nani, Sir ghar par hai..' Nikki asked looking around...
'Haan woh dinner kar raha hai, tum log beito main kuch lekar aata hun tum sabke liye...' Nani said...
'Nehi Nani, hum dinner karke aaya hun... Woh humein Sir se kuch baat karni hai...' Armaan said..
'Aapko kiya baat karna hai Dr. Mallik...' Shashank asked coming to the hall...

Everyone look at him as they saw his stern expression, as expected Armaan bend his head not being able to look in to his eyes while others just keep quiet as Armaan told them before that no one would speak between them but he wants them to be there for moral support...
'Shashank, kyun bacche koh dara rahe ho...' Nani said scolding him...
'Main kaha dara raha hun ma, Dr. Mallik koh mujhse baat karna hai toh main bas puch raha hun...' Shashank said...
'Woh Sir... Woh main Bas... I mean Riddhima ke baare mein baat karne aaya hun...' Armaan said...
'Riddhima ke baare mein jitna tum jaante ho, usse zyada jaanne ke zarurat nehi hai Dr. Mallik...' Shashank said...
'Sir main bas yehi puchne...' Armaan was cut by Shashank...
'Riddhima ne saaf saaf kaha woh tumhe apne zindagi mein nehi chahiyeh, phir is sabka koi matlab nehi hai Dr. Mallik... You all may leave...' Shashank said turning around to leave...
'Sir, main jaan chuka hun Riddhima mujhe issiliye choda kyunki woh paralyzed huvi hai...' Armaan said knowing it was the only way that he could make Shashank talk to him...

Hearing those words, Shashank got statue on the place as he felt his heart break... Shashank close his eyes as he realized how much pain were in Armaan voice when he speak those words with so much difficult because as much as it hurt him, it was hurting him more to know his love was suffering due to the sudden change of her health...

Even Nani was shocked to know how Armaan got to know about the truth of Riddhima health, she look towards Atul, Nikki and Muskaan who stood bending their heads... Armaan look towards Nani and understanding she was searching for the answer how he got to know, move in front of Nani taking her hands in his...
'Aapne bhi nehi batayi mujhe Nani, kyun...???' Armaan asked as it was his question to every person who is a part of his life...

First, to his basket and than to his friends... Now for those who he has accepted as his family after his parents but seems like no one really has accepted him as their family because he knows, some where in their heart they believe that he was in fault...
'Kiya aap tab bhi chup rehti Nani, mere jhaga Riddhima takleef mein tadpe...??? Kiya aap Riddhima se yeh chupate, woh mere saath hote...??? Bolo Nani, kyun chupaya aap sabne mujhe itni badi baat...??? Kiya main paraya hun...???' Armaan ask as tears falls from his eyes as he slide down on his knee holding Nani hands...
'Nehi bacche, tum toh humhare bete ho...' Nani said crying too...
'Phir kyun chupaya mujhse yeh baat Nani...??? Sir ke tarah aapko bhi lagta hai jo Riddhima ke saath huva, woh mere wajahse huva...' Armaan asked lowering his head not looking towards Nani...
'Nehi bacche, tum toh humhare beti se itna pyar karta hai... Hum aisa kyun sochenge, woh toh uski kismat mein likha ta... Jo hona likha hai, koi nehi badhal sakte bacche...' Nani said...
'Phir kyun mujhse chupaya yeh baat Nani, kyun...???' Armaan asked leaving Nani hands as he break down...

Just like others, Nani was also helpless because Riddhima have given her swear to everyone... Already Riddhima was suffering and no one want anything more to happen her by breaking the swear she has given to every single person who are related to them...

Mean while, Shashank just stood on the place with his back towards them... Tears form in his eyes hearing those heart wrenching words from Armaan, who had always loves his daughter unconditionally and he has prove it many times, not once but being the father, he always has take him for granted and think that he wasn't the right person for his daughter...

Again today, Armaan have prove that how much pure his love is for his daughter... Armaan has manage to find out where his daughter is and got the answer for his questions... From that very day, he never believe the piece of paper which Riddhima has left for him but his heart because he says it never would agree that his basket would leave him like that when she was willing to put her life in danger to be by his side...

If Shashank didn't like anything about Armaan than it was the fact that he has taken his princess away from him... Riddhima used to be closed to Shashank from childhood but from the day Armaan enter her life, he has realized how Riddhima was slowly distancing herself from him which he didn't like a bit...

The day Padma make him see her happiness was laying in Armaan, he decide to accept him for the sake of her happiness because he wants his princess to get the prince of her dreams who would love her unconditionally and take care of her every step of her life in future...

Shashank was happy to accept Armaan because from that day, Armaan manage to do everything and anything he could do for Riddhima to keep the smile on her face... Shashank knows if his daughter has a smile on her face, the reason is Armaan and Armaan has prove many times that his love for her is so pure...

While Shashank was lost thinking about how Armaan and Riddhima always get back being separated because their love for each other was so strong that god can't keep them away for much time, Nani hugs Armaan being helpless to see how badly Armaan has broke...

Crying for god knows how many minutes, Armaan finally control his tears and break the hug... Armaan look towards Shashank, who still stood with his back towards them... Armaan slowly stood up and move towards Shashank knowing how much it must have hurt him as well to know Riddhima health condition...

Armaan knows, Shashank must believe for a second or more that it was his fault... Armaan didn't have any hard feelings for him because he knows Shashank is a father who can't see his daughter's life in danger or his daughter in pain... More than Anjali, Shashank always love Riddhima because she was the perfect ideal daughter he always wish to have in his life...

So Armaan believe that, he needs to ask for forgiveness for putting his daughter life in danger because of him... If Riddhima wasn't so crazily in love with him, she wouldn't have think of taking such a step to hurt her family because her first priority had been always to obey her father...
'I m sorry Dad...' Armaan said as once again he slide down on his knee, folding his hand and bending his head in front of the father, whose daughter put her life in danger for him, to be with him...
'Armaan...' Nani gasp seeing what he was doing...

Others just stood staring at Armaan because they know, Armaan would never bow in front of anyone if he didn't think he is really in fault... Hearing Nani calling Armaan name, Shashank turn around to be left shocked seeing Armaan sitting on his knee, folding hands with head bend...
'Basket ke saath saath, main aapka bhi mujhrim hun dad... Maine aapke beti ki hasi cheena hai, khushi cheena hai jo hamesha aap usse diya hai bachpan se... Main apna vaada pura nehi kar saka dad, hamesha mere wajahse usse takleef, dard aur aansu hi mila hai...' Armaan said as fresh tears fall from his eyes...

Shashank was beyond shocked to hear this, he thought Armaan would try to explain that how much he loves Riddhima by telling that he didn't do anything intentionally but here, this guy was accepting that he is the culprit of his daughter for taking away her happiness and smile...

They all know that, Riddhima's happiness is with Armaan now but she is just too stubborn to accept it because she don't want to be a burden to anyone... If it was possible for her, she would have left without letting her parents know about her condition because she could never let anyone show sympathy to her for her health...

As everyone cry silently, Shashank pull Armaan up hugging him tight... It was a surprise to everyone because they never thought Shashank would hear his plead as he had been ignoring and behaving rude with Armaan from last week he had come back...
'I m sor...' Shashank was about to apology but Armaan cut him...
'Nehi dad, aap maafi mat maago... Galati mujhse huva hai, us din main zidd nehi karte toh basket mujhse milne hospital nehi jaate aur woh sab hota uske saath...' Armaan said...
'Sirf uske saath nehi, tumhare saath bhi nehi hota yeh sab... Hum sab jaante hai tum kabhi uska saath nehi chodnege lekin Riddhima ne...' Shashank was again cut by Armaan...
'Kasam dekhe aap sabke muh band kardiya, I know dad...' Armaan said...
'Lekin, tumhe yeh sab...' Shashank asked still not understanding how he manage to know about Riddhima whereabouts...

Armaan narrate everything happen from the day he got the call from Rahul, Nani and Shashank smile through the tears as they realized how much this guy loves their Riddhima and she is just too lucky to have someone like him who never think about the situation but want to be with her in any condition...

When Armaan finally finished telling Shashank and Nani, Shashank again hugs him while Nani care his back with love... They never doubt on his love to Riddhima but once again, Armaan prove that he is the best that any girl could get and dream to have in their life...
'Lekin tum waapas kyun aaye...???' Nani asked...
'Kyunki aapki poti bohot ziddi hai, kehdiya mujhe ki main shaadi karlun...' Armaan said...
'Kisse...???' Shashank asked...
'Arey, yeh toh aapke beti ne bataya nehi mujhe... Toh maine socha, ladki ke pita se permission maang leti hun...' Armaan said wiping his tears...
'Riddhima ne batayi nehi toh tu kisse permission maangne wale ho...???' Nani asked...
'Dad, sab toh jaante hai main basket ke siwa kissi ladki ke baare mein sochta bhi nehi hun... Haan flirt ta pehle lekin jabse aapke beti ne mere dil churaya hai, tabse uske deewana bana hun... Woh chaahti hai main shaadi karke aage badun lekin uske bina main ek kadam bhi aage nehi le sakte apne zindagi mein... Kiya aap apne beti ki shaadi is deewane ke saath kara denge...???' Armaan asked...
'Mujhe kyun puch rahe ho Armaan, mere haan kehne se tumhara basket haan kahenge...???' Shashank asked...
'Usse haan bhulwane ki zimmedaari mera dad, ek baar aap haan keh doh bas...' Armaan said...
'Kitna bada nautanki haina tu Armaan, seedhe seedhe koi baat nehi puch sakte...' Nani said holding his ears...
'Ouch Nani, aapki poti ne mujhe itni hadd tak deewana bana diya hai main toh uske liye majnu bangaya hun...' Armaan said taking off Nani hand from his ear...
'Shashank, in dono ke jodi perfect rahenge... Yeh bhi paagal, aur humhare beti bhi pagli hai yeh socha yeh deewana uski peeche kabhi chodenge ya kabhi usse isse dur rehne denge...' Nani said...
'Haan ma, mujhe nehi pata ta mera beti itna lucky hoga usse Armaan jaisa pyar karne wala milenge... Aur aajke zamaane mein aise pyar karne wale bohot naseeb walon koh milte hai aur humhare beti ki naseeb bohot acche hai...' Shashank said...
'Mubarak ho mere bhai, ab Ridzy koh mana ne ka waqt aagaya...' Atul said moving to Armaan said...
'Atul sahi keh raha hai hero, ab apne heroine koh dulhan bana ne ka waqt aagaya hai...' Muskaan said joining Atul...
'Armaan apne Basket koh lekar aayenge...' Nikki said...
'Chalo baaraat lekar jaane ka waqt aagaya hai...' Nani said...
'Lekin aapko toh baaraat ka swagat karna hai...' Armaan said...
'Woh toh jab tum apne dulhan koh lekar yaha aakhe usse shaadi karke lejaane aayenge tab karungi main...'Nani said hitting Armaan cheek softly...
'Toh Dr. Mallik, aap tayyar hai mere beti koh mana ne ke liye...???' Shashank asked...
'Always dad...' Armaan said flashing his dimple...
'Good, main next week jaa raha hun tab tum mere saath chalenge...' Shashank said...
'Kash hum bhi jaa sakte...' Atul said sadly...
'Main bhi...' Muskaan said...
'Haan mujhe bhi jaana hai...' Nikki said...
'Phir main toh yaha akele rehjaungi...' Nani said...
'Tum log jaakhe kiya karenge...??? Main toh basket koh mana kar yaha leaaunga shaadi ke liye... Issiliye tum log Nani ke paas raho tab tak...' Armaan said...
'Arey, mujhe apne best friend se milna hai Ammy...' Nikki said...
'Ab jab wo waapas aaye, tab mil lena...' Armaan said...
'Aise kaise, kitni months hogaye...' Muskaan said...
'Muski, waha Rahul miljaenge toh kiya karenge tu...???' Atul asked...

Muskaan got quiet as she wasn't ready to meet Rahul, after what he did she don't want to go in front of him knowing that he didn't care about her feelings because she was ready to accept him the way he is but Rahul wasn't ready to hold her hand knowing she needs him in her life, nothing more, nothing less...

Shashank and Nani didn't know the reason why Rahul left and what happen but when Muskaan got quiet suddenly, they knew something big happen between them... So a moment, Muskaan got statue but like always she thought to avoid anything related to Rahul...
'Waise Nani ne sahi kaha, woh akele rehjaenge yaha... Toh main uski paas rukh jaungi...' Muskaan said...
'Doctor's, Armaan mere saath jaa raha hai toh aap teenon koh yaha rukhna hoga... Waise bhi hospital mein doctor's kum hai toh Dr. Kriti koh bohot mushkil hoga aap sabko ek saath leave dena...' Shashank said...
'Ji Sir, hum rukhjaenge...' Nikki said...
'Waapas toh aap log yaha aayenge toh koi baat nehi Sir... Hum wait karenge...' Atul said...
'Chalo ab khana khao sab, bohot baatein hogayi...' Nani said...
'Nehi Nani, abhi humein chalna chahiyeh... Bohot raat hogayi, kal duty pe report karna hai...' Muskaan said...
'Haan Nani, its really late... Ab nikalna chahiyeh humein...' Nikki said...
'Aati rehna bacchon...' Nani said as Nikki and Muskaan hugs her...
'Zarur, ab toh pehle ke tarah aati rahenge hum Nani...' Muskaan said...

Everyone left with a smile on their face, Nani and Shashank also went back to have dinner as they had left it untouched... After days, they felt hungry thinking that soon everything would be fine... With Armaan being determine to bring the happiness back in his basket life, they know now no one can separate them because Armaan knows how to make Riddhima accept what is good for them and all...


A WEEK LATER


It's going to be almost two weeks that Armaan left and from that day, Riddhima has got quiet... Neither she talk to anyone or try to smile the sake of her mother or sister like she used to do... After that day, Riddhima was missing Armaan every passing second but she knows whatever she did, it was the best for them...

Riddhima knows Armaan would be hurt, she was expecting Armaan to come and make her changed her decision but when she ask him to leave and move on in his life, he agree at once and didn't even question her... Riddhima felt wired but thought maybe Armaan agree because he didn't want to be with her knowing she is paralyzed...

So from that day, Riddhima got quiet as she heart was broken badly... Riddhima never thought Armaan would agree to marry but thinking that another girl soon would be in Armaan life, her heart bleed badly... Riddhima knows she can't do anything now, not when she was in such condition that she can't do anything without someone help...

Not having another option than hiding her feelings deep down in her heart because she make her love leave her because she feel she would be a burden to him... Riddhima needs someone with her all the time now and she knows if she let Armaan be in her life, he wouldn't leave her side for a second and he has dream of becoming one of the famous doctor...

After Armaan realized his love for her, Riddhima knows his dreams has changed because now his dream is to be with his basket, spend his life with her, have kids and get old with her watching their kids grow up in front of their eyes...

Remembering those happy moments, tears form in her eyes realizing now she wouldn't have any more new memories with her Armaan because she has push him away from her life... Riddhima closed her eyes thinking how easily Armaan agree to leave her, the fact which still didn't digest that he had left like that...

Suddenly Riddhima felt Armaan present, she slowly open her eyes as her heartbeat started to raise... Riddhima was thinking why would he come when he agree to marry and move on... It's been more than a week, he never try to contact her or meet her but don't know why today suddenly she felt that he is closed to her...
'Shayad main kuch zyada yaad kar rahi hun...' Riddhima said looking towards the view in front of her...

Riddhima was in the balcony of her room, where she could see the city, it wasn't too big but not too small either as to her request, her parents as kept a swing because she loves to be in it whenever she comes out to the open air whenever she wants to be alone to think about her life how it has changed so much...

It was another day that she wish to be alone, to enjoy the cold weather outside as it had been raining from last few days making the day seems like evening or night at the this time of morning or afternoon... Breeze were making the atmosphere more cold but at the moment, it wasn't raining...
'Itna miss kar rahi hai toh mujhe dur kyun bheja...' A voice break Riddhima trace...

Riddhima felt her heart miss a beat hearing that voice not only reached to her ears but deep down her heart too... She wasn't able to believe that she has truly heard or again she was imagine having him around her as her heart wants him to come back to her...
'Kiya huva Basket... Bohot zyada yaad aa rahi hai...' Again the same voice reached to her ears, this time clearly and closed...

Riddhima closed her eyes feeling someone breath on her ear, her heart was beating fast because it has recognized who it was that who had the power to make her react like that... Riddhima didn't need to open her eyes to see the person as his imagine flash in front of her eyes...
'Armaan...' Riddhima whisper his name softly...
'Itna yaad mat kiya karo ki mujhe tumse dur rehna mushkil hojaae...' Armaan said finally coming in front of her...

It's been a few minutes that Armaan has reached with Shashank, he met with Padma and Anjali as both were in the house because it was Sunday... They all know that Shashank was coming back today but, no one was expecting Armaan to be there with him...

When Shashank tell them everything happen back in Mumbai when Armaan went back after meeting Riddhima, which Anjali got to know from Padma as Armaan has left before Anjali could come and he didn't even try to meet Anjali because he was in hurry to decide what he has to do after talking to Riddhima and got to know what she wants...

Padma and Anjali were happy that Shashank has accept Armaan back as they all believe that Riddhima wouldn't get someone better than Armaan... So after talking to them, Armaan move to meet his basket as his eyes were craving to capture her once again deep in his heart...

When Armaan words reach to her brain, Riddhima open her eyes to see Armaan standing in front of her with his dimple smile which reach to his electric blue orbs which sparkles happiness... The moment Armaan eyes met with her attractive orbs, as usual they got lost in each other forgetting their surrounding...

It was Riddhima who break it realizing she was letting her emotions out because Riddhima knows Armaan could read her very well if she kept looking towards him... Armaan who got lost in Riddhima, smash himself mentally for forgetting why he has come there...
'Yaha kyun aaye ho tum...' Riddhima ask not looking towards him...
'Shaadi ke liye invite karne...' Armaan said moving to the parapet...

Hearing the word marriage, Riddhima look towards Armaan shocked written on her face... Armaan who was closely watching her expression, saw the color changed on her face... Armaan knows, she wouldn't be able to digest the fact that her Armaan is going to marry someone else...
'Kiya huva, tumhe khushi nehi huvi sunke main shaadi kar raha hun...???' Armaan asked sitting on the parapet...
'Congratulation...' Riddhima said forcing a smile on her lips...
'Thank you basket,  lekin ek choti si problem hai...' Armaan said...

Riddhima look towards him with question, Armaan smile seeing her expression very well knowing she was waiting for him to continue... Armaan look out as he stood up on the parapet making Riddhima gasp, not understanding what was going on his brain...
'Ladki ne abhi tak haan nehi kaha, toh main soch raha hun aisa kya karun jo woh maan jaae...' Armaan said walking slowly on the parapet...
'Armaan, neeche utro...' Riddhima shouted seeing Armaan walking on the parapet...
'Toh tum batao, kiya karna chahiyeh mujhe basket...???' Armaan said ignoring Riddhima words...
'Armaan, pehle neeche utro...' Riddhima said trying to move but her legs didn't support her...
'Maine bohot socha, lekin mujhe kuch samajh nehi aaya... Maine toh uske parents koh bhi mana liya, sab khush hai lekin woh khush nehi hai...' Armaan said as he continue walking...
'Please Armaan, neeche utro...' Riddhima said as she was scared that Armaan might fall...

Thinking that Armaan might lost his balance and hurt himself, it was making her heart beating fast... Fear took place in her heart thinking what if anything happen to her Armaan... Being helpless, Riddhima look at her legs which wasn't obeying her...

Armaan who was ignoring Riddhima still kept watching her expression and each action knowing she was scared to see him sitting on the parapet... Riddhima always is scared of heights and she always stop Armaan from sitting on the parapet but today she was helpless because she can't move...
'Ab soch raha hun, kuch karna chahiyeh mujhe ki woh haan karde...' Armaan said as he stop facing his back to Riddhima...
'Armaan...' Riddhima shouted...

Next moment, Armaan heard something fall which make him look back to see Riddhima on the floor... It break Armaan heart but he knows, Riddhima wouldn't agree easily unless he prove his point that they are mean to be together, it doesn't matter in which situation they are...
'Toh batao Basket, mujhe kiya karna chahiyeh...' Armaan ask again showing his back to her as tears form in his eyes...
'Armaan, please waha se neech utro pehle...' Riddhima said forwarding her hand towards him...
'Kuch toh sochna padega na basket...' Armaan said controlling his voice because it was breaking...
'Please Armaan, pehle utro waha se... Tum ghir jaaenge, chot lagjaenge tumhe...' Riddhima said crying as she try to move to him but her legs weren't supporting her...
'Kyun...??? Mujhe chot lagenge toh tumhe kyun fark padega basket... Tum toh chaahti hai main chala jaun tumhare zindagi se... Toh mujhe chot lage ya kuch aur ho, kiya fark padta hai...???' Armaan asked looking towards her still not moving off from the parapet...
'Armaan please... Neeche aajao...' Riddhima said trying to move again but she couldn't...
'Jis zindagi mein Basket ka saath na ho, main toh woh zindagi jeena bhi nehi chahte...' Armaan said as finally the tears started to fall from his eyes...
'Armaan...' Riddhima just whisper his name being helpless...

Riddhima was getting irritate because she wasn't able to move and stop Armaan... Her lower body wasn't supporting so she just couldn't move an inch close to Armaan as she just wish to hugs him and break down in his arms where she belongs to...

Being helpless that she wasn't able to do such a small thing to be closed to her Armaan, more tears started to fall from Riddhima eyes... Armaan heart was wreching apart seeing Riddhima tears, it was making his heart bleed badly as the tears where stabbing deep in his heart like arrows...

Armaan knows he can't get weak because it was the only way that he could make Riddhima understand that, they wouldn't be able to live being separate... They can face any hardship in their life but only when they are together and by each other side, not being away...
'Tumne socha hoga ki maine itni aasaani se shaadi ke liye haan kyun kaha right... Tumne yeh nehi kaha mujhse kissi aur se shaadi karlo, issiliye maine haan kaha kyunki mera dulhan toh sirf tum banonge basket...'Armaan said...
'Yeh nehi ho sakte Armaan...' Riddhima said crying as she look towards him...
'Kyun nehi ho sakte basket...' Armaan asked...
'Kyunki main layak nehi hun tumhari...' Riddhima said...
'Toh koan layak hai mera, batao Basket... Main bhi toh sunun...' Armaan said as he started to walk on the parapet again...
'Pehle tum waha se utro Armaan, mujhe dar lagta hai...' Riddhima said...
'Kis baat ka dar basket...??? Main yaha se ghirna jaae...???' Armaan asked...
'Tumhe takleef hote toh mujhe dard hoti hai Armaan...' Riddhima said crying...
'Kyun basket, kyun dard hota hai tumhe... Aur kyun dar rahe ho, waise bhi mera zindagi tumhare bina khatam hi hogaya hai...' Armaan said...
'Nehi Armaan, aisa mat kaho...' Riddhima said crying and forwarding her hand to stop him...
'Accha mera chodo, kiya tum kissi aur se shaadi kar sakte ho...???' Armaan asked...
'Armaan please...' Riddhima plead him...
'Yeh mera sawal ka jawab nehi hai basket... Yes or no, kiya tum mere siwa kissi aur koh apni pati banne denge... Usse woh saara hak depaenge jo ek ladki uske pati ke liye dena hoga...' Armaan asked...
'Armaan, humhara situation alag hai...' Riddhima said...
'Kaise, please explain basket...' Armaan said...
'Armaan, tum kyun nehi samajh rahe... I can't distory your life knowing that I can't do anything for you that a wife should do for her husband...' Riddhima said...
'Tik hai, tumne apne zindagi ka faisla suna diya mujhe... Ab mera faisla bhi sunlo...' Armaan said still walking on the parapet...
'Pehle tum neeche aao Armaan...' Riddhima said trying her best to reach him...
'Tumne mujhe shaadi karke aage badne koh kehkar woh saara hak kho chuke ho basket... Ab mera yeh zindagi sirf mera hai aur main ek pal ke liye jeena nehi chahta tumhari bina...' Armaan said...
'Bakwaas mat karo Armaan, tum kuch nehi karonge...' Riddhima said...
'Tum apni zindagi ka faisla le sakte ho toh main kyun nehi basket...' Armaan asked...
'Kyunki maine kaha...' Riddhima said...
'Kyun...??? Kis hak se keh rahe ho tum basket...' Armaan asked...
'Armaan please, khud ke nehi toh kam se kam apne parents ke baare mein socho...' Riddhima said...
'Aaj tak maine sirf dusron ke baare mein socha hai, tumhare baare mein socha hai... Kiya mila mujhe, dard...??? Dukh...???' Armaan said...
'Armaan...' Riddhima whisper again as her voice got blocked...

Both look at each other as tears fall from their eyes making it bloodshot red, pain were visible in their eyes as it shows how much broken the situation has make them... Riddhima try to call his name but it didn't come out from her mouth but her lips move a little...

Riddhima try to move but she couldn't because her body wasn't supporting her... Riddhima forward her hands towards Armaan as she wants him to hold it and come to her, take her in his arms where she feel secure but Armaan just kept staring without breaking their eye contact...

Seeing how much Riddhima was trying to come close to him, Armaan heart was breaking every passing minute... Armaan can see the pain in her eyes, the helpless that she wasn't able to move close to him... Armaan wants to hold Riddhima hand which she has forward towards him but he was equally hurt by her that he wants her to realized, being separate will give only pain to them...

Again Riddhima try to move but she couldn't move a single inch, she try to stand but she couldn't even move her legs... Riddhima helplessly hit her legs several times because she couldn't feel it anymore... It was holding her back from being in the arms of her life...

For a second, Armaan thought to stop torturing themselves by doing whatever he was doing but knowing Riddhima wouldn't agree, he change his mind as he want to hear yes from Riddhima... Armaan wants Riddhima to let him back in her life and for that, he thought a little more torture wouldn't hurt much...
'Chalo ek aahiri baar tumhe mere liye faisla lene ka moka deti hun basket... Ab tum hi mere zindagi ka faisla karo, haan kehkar mujhe bachao ya mujhe tukra ke mujhe hamesha ke liye kho doh kyunki tumhare na ke baad main zindagi se hamesha hamesha ke liye alvida kahunga... Faisla tumhe karna hai basket, kiya tum mujhse shaadi karonge...???' Armaan asked as he stop walking and face Riddhima...

Riddhima cried loudly knowing Armaan was saying the truth that he would do whatever he was saying because it was hard for him also to live without her, just the way she wants him every single second of her life by herself...

Suddenly, it started to rain and a loud thunder make both Armaan and Riddhima startled... Armaan who was standing on the parapet not expecting the loud voice, which seems to be heard very closed lost his balance... Riddhima eyes grow wide seeing how Armaan was going to fall off from the balcony...
'Armaaan...' Riddhima scream...
